Rainbows9 former coach awed
by support, stadium renovation
By Ed McClymont
Few Nebraska football fans care to
remember the game of Sept. 17, 1955, but
to Hank Vasconvellos it remains as vivid
today as 23 years ago. The final score of
the contest was Hawaii 6, Nebraska 0
and Vasconcellos was the winning coach.
Vasconcellos Is now retired from
coaching but he traveled with the Hawaii
team to Lincoln for Saturday's game.
"It is good to come back to Lincoln
one more time. I have a lot of friends
here. It's been a good series and a good
marriage between the schools," Vascon
He said the 1955 game was "one of the
biggest games" in Hawaii history.
"We had lost bad the year before
in Hawaii and it was good to beat Nebras
ka in Lincoln," he said.
The return trip brought a few surprises
'The last time I was here, the stadium
held 38,000 to 40,000 people. I was
aghast at the size of it now when I went
over to practice today (Friday), he said.
The fans have always been great at Neb
raska, they haye such a good prograrh."
The football program in Hawaii is on
the upswing, according to Vasconcellos
and the newly constructed Aloha Stadium
in Honolulu has been a definite factor
in the supswing, he said.
"We had 40,000 people at our season
opener against New Mexico. The fan
support is really improved. Coach Tomey
has done a wonderful job and the team
shows signs of becoming a really good foot

Osborne said he also thought that the
reserve quarterbacks Tim Hager and Jeff
Quinn played good games.
Hawaii head coach Dick Tomey said he
thought his team lost its poise in the
second quarter and that cost Hawaii the
"There was a point in the second
quarter (with the score 7-0) when we lined
up in the wrong formation and fumbled.
To that point it was still a good game,"
"We lost our poise and got steamroll
ered." Although the win came easily, the
Huskers did suffer some key injuries. Hipp
and offensive guard Steve Lindquist suff

Potadle and defensive back Andy Means
also had minor injuries.
Sophomore wingback Tim McCrady
