UNL lost a total of five yards on kick returns against
CU. O-borae said the Huskers' lack of scoring in the first
half was due partly to the poor kkiing game.
Although the defense played we3, Osborne said he was
disappointed that the Blackshirts gave up some long plays.
CU completed one long pass just before halftirne that
led to a field gosl, had several long runs from scrimmage,
a long punt and a kickoff return.
Poor passing game
The passing game was a third area of disappointment,

Nebraska about 80 to 1C0 yards in total offense against
CU, he said.
"It was the first time this year we didn't complete 50
per cent of our passes, Osborne said. UNL completed
only nine of 20 attempts.
"It was a poor percentage of pass completions. We also

Osborne said the game was one of the most physical
the Huskers have played this year. The injury situation
backs up Osborne's statement.
"We were hurting going into the game," Osborne said.
"Anthony is very doubtful for the Kansas State game, and
our entire offensive line is hurting."
Osborne said UNL has had more hard hitting games

UNL softball players
alter recreation habits
Men's intramural softball at UNL might not rival the
upcoming World Series for fan interest, but its switch to
the fall season has sparked interest, according to Gale
Wiedow, coordinator of program plarining-intramurals.
"Last spring we had 99 teams participate in softball,
but this fall we had 1 10," Wiedow said.
"We also had 50 per cent of the games rained out last
spring. This fall, we've had only three playing dates post
poned," he said.
"I plan on taking a survey of the students to determine
whether well have fall softball next fall," Wiedow said.
"For myself, it's a problem of administration needed to
coordinate fall softball."
wiedow said co-recreational and women's softball were
not offered this fall, but will be offered this spring.
There will be no men's softball in the spring, he added.
"I think men playing this fall, while the co-rec and
women's teams play m the spring, will generate more
interest overall, he said.
The men's playoffs conclude this week with most of
the initial 38 teams eliminated in the A, B, and C league
divisions. With most of the league division's champion
ships already decided, the Recreation Dept. has compiled
the standings in the fast and slow pitch divisions.

Although a starting lineup will not be set, fall baseball
practices determine who will be on next spring's baseball
team, according to Husker head coach Tony Sharpe.
Assistant coach John Sanders said a lot of player eva
luation still is necessary.
Of the ordinal group of 70 who started fall tryouts,
33 remain. About 30 will be left for the regular season,
Sharpe said. v
A total of 19 freshmen, 15 veterans and three trans
fer students are on the current roster.
Sharpe said this is the first year varsity players have
had fall workouts.

and have a strong defensive infkld. -
1 don't want to mention any names, Sharpe said.
Tut we should have the depth there if the players keep
coming along and avoid injuries. Right now all positions
are up for grabs."
Sanders came to UNL this fall from a head coaching
job at Arizona Yestern Junior College in Yuma, Ariz.
"I've been pleased with the way Coach Sanders has
put the players through workouts," Sharpe said. "Up to
date I have given him quite a hand in the practices.
"I've been observing him, but I'm not saying this is a
trial period," Sharpe said. 1 just feel it's the proper pro
cedure for this fall."
Sharpe said Bob Gates, former UNL assistant baseball
coach and now head coach at UNO, had duties similar
to Sander's during the fa3.
