will feature Jeff Smith cf Nebraska
on its cover with the caption,
The Big Red Machine Jeff
Smith of No. 1 Nebraska."
In the cover story, "The Huskers
may be shockers," Douglas Loo
ney writes, "Believe it or not, the
Huskers may be even more lor
midibb than they were last sea
son, when they ripped off a 12-0
regular season and evoked strong,
albeit hardly unanimous, senti
ment that they weren't only the
top team of '83 but the best col
lege team in history as well."
Looney continued, "Nonethe
less, how is it possible that Neb
raska could be better than last?
People around Lincoln don't like
to talk about it, but late in the '83
season there was an alarming
drift away from all-for-one to a
weekly production of the Irving,
Turner and Mike show.
Charlie McDridc, the Cornhus
kers' defensive coordinate r, likes
to tell his players, "There's no T in
team." You notice a lot of Ts in
Irving Dryer, Turner Gill AND
Mike Rozier. The situation wor
sened when Rozier, having trou
ble handling the Hcisman pres
sure, grew surly with his press.
Gill and Fryer fell in step with
Rozier. At Nebraska, where deal
ing with the media is considered
necessary and educational, thb
attitude wasn't good form.
But in more typical Husker
style, the underclassmen who
were on hand for the Orange
Bowl defeat came back to Lin
coln, kept their mouths shut and
intensified their efforts in strength
coach Boyd Epiey's gargantuan
weight facility. Most of all, they
kept in mind there is no 'me' in
