Cuy UNLhead freshmen football coach, wj3 be
coaching his second gams today at 1:30 pjn. when the
Hosiers battle their arch rival, the University of Nebraska
at Omaha (UNO) junior varsity.
Cat Ingles said it is more important to him that his
players also w3 be in their second pme.
"I don't. like people playing cp Ingles makes fcnpress
ive debut and stuff tie that he said. The players
deserve the credit. They're the ones playing.
UNL's freshmen downed Kansas State University's
(KSU) junior varsity 33-6 in their first game two weeks
ago. UNO has lost to Iowa State University junior varsity
ra their only game. .
"Except for a few costly turnovers they (UNO) played
as wefl as Iowa State," Ingles said. "They look tke a
pretty capable team.
"It's a good rivalry, one of the basest games of the
year," Ingles said. "Some of these k&s played together
and assist each other in high school."
The series between the two schools started in 1974
when the Huskers downed UNO 6-0. Last year UNLwon-41-0.
Ingles said he is pleased with the progress of the team
but the red test is today.
"Our kicking game is corning," he said. "It's not the
strongest part of our team, but the punters are doing a
Former Nefcraa Blackshhts and current assistant
freshmen coaches Mark lleydorff, Bob Thornton, Dean
Gis&r and Dave Redding have been instiling the Clack
shirt tenacity into the defense, Ingles said.
The kitting and pursuit of the defense has been real
good," Ingles said. "The coaches have done an excellent
job," - ' .
Steve McKervey and Ron Nitzel, freshman assistant
coaches, kelp Ingles with the offense.
UNL has the only freshman program in the Dig 8
Conference. It has remained because of its rich tradition
and UNL's ability to attract walk-on players, Ingles said.
"We've had a successful freshman program for a while
(54-6 record since 1956), and over a number of years you
start to attract people so you don't have to use sopho
mores and juniors," Ingles said.
"Walk-ons are treated fairly, no different than a
scholarship athlete. And if he's better he will start,"
Ingles continued. "The two football staffs and the Athle
tic Dept. feel a freshman program is a good way to accli- .
mate a freshman to college sports."
A totaled 3 of the 82 players currently on the roster
are walk-ons. Most are from Nebraska, but there are

One freshman player already is helping the varsity.
Kerry Teinrnaster, a rnildle guard, has earned a spot with
the varsity and made the trip Saturday to Colorado.
The freshmen lost the services of another performer,
but for different reasons. Highly recruited tight end Mike
Polk left school and went back home to Lawrence, Kan.
to work for his father.
It's hard to believe he left," Ingles said. 1 don't
think he cared for Lincoln or the classroom and living
in the dorrn. He nnght be hiding the truth, but he told us
football wasn't the reason he was leaving. He hasn't trans
ferred to another schooL"
Despite the loss of two top performers Ingles said he
thinks this squad compares favorably with past ones.

Wrestlers untested, but attitude good

A young and untested Husker wrestling squad has
head coach Oral DorgiaHi apprehensive about the up
"Right now we look all right on paper," CorgtaZi said
"Cut it's hard to assess a team until they start practicing
on the mats. This year's squad has the best attitude of
any team I've ever coached. And attitude is 80 per cent
Borgiaili said the Huskers have been training with
weights in preparation for the Great Plains Tournament in
Lincoln Not. 12 and 13. The meet will feature up to 40
teams, he said.
Winners in the Great Plains Tournament will be invited
by the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) to attend the
Ttlia Republic of Georgia meet in Moscow, U-SiLR.
Eorgialli said that with so many teams in the Great
Plains Tournament, individual performance is stressed
rather than team scores.
"Opening with a tournament instead of a dual has a
definite advantage," he said. "It lets us enter three wrest
lers per weight class instead of just one. This gives several
inexperienced kids a, chance to get their feet on the
ground and get seasoned.
It also gives us a chance to see what a kid looks like
in front of the crowd," he sail. "Sometimes a kid looks
bad in the wrestling room, but when he gets in front of
a crowd he really performs."

More than 40 wrestlers, including 10 returning letter
men, are out for this year's squad. But Eorgialli said he
expects that number to be reduced one third to one
fourth by next week.
- "After we start practicing on the mats, more kids will
decide to give it up," he said. "They eliminate them
selves. I don't tell anyone they're off the team unless
they break training rules."
