Lobo coach says turnovers, injuries
ctww luuwu lu toss 10 uornnus Kers
By Chuck Green
New Mexico coach Joe Lee Dunn
blamed the Lobos' 38-7 loss to Nebraska
on' Saturday on the same problem
they've had all season.
"We just can't seem to score many
points," Dunn said. "We feel like we
can move the ball, and we did, but we
only scored seven points. Our problem
is not moving the ball, but putting the
ball in the end zone. It's just one of
Dunn said one of the Lobos' main
problems was mistakes.
"We turned the ball over too many
times," Dunn said. "We threw too many
interceptions. The turnover with less
than two minutes left in the first half
didn't help us much, either. But give
Nebraska credit. They utilized their
"We had a lot of injuries, too. We had
four concussions, and we were playing
people who had never practiced at
their positions. It was a very physical
football game." .
In the third quarter, a controversial
call ended New Mexico's momentum.
The Huskers led 21-7 when T.nhn
quarterback Ned James completed a
sideline pass to receiver Terance
Mathis. Mathis ran 79 yards for an
apparent score, which would have cut
Nebraska's lead to eight, or seven with
an extra point. But an official ruled
that Mathis had stepped out of bounds
before catching the ball, therefore nul
lifying the play.
"The official said he ran out of
bounds on his own," Dunn said, "but he
(Mathis) said he was pushed out by a
If Mathis was pushed out of bounds
by a Cornhusker defender, the play
should not have been called back.
Receivers are allowed to return to the
field of play only if they are pushed or
blocked out of bounds.
"The official didn't throw the flag
until Mathis had crossed into the end
zone," Dunn said. "We called time out
to talk to the official, to make sure he
understood the situation. It was a big
downer to get back into the game and
then, all of a sudden, have it taken
away from us."
Dunn said he was impressed with
the Huskers, as well as the Nebraska
"Nebraska was definitely the best
team out there today," Dunn said. "I
won't deny that. But we weren't, a
bunch of pushovers either. We got in a
lot of good licks, and I think they found
out it wasn't going to be as easy as they
thought it might be. We sort of got the
upperhand on defense early in the
game, but Nebraska was just a better

places to play football in the country.
Their team is a class act and so is
(Husker coach) Tom Osborne. They
were helping us up after each play and
showing great sportsmanship. That's
what football is all about. Nebraska's
fans even clapped for our kids as they
left the field, and that really impressed
Even though New Mexico played
Nebraska much closer than expected,
it is no consolation for Dunn.
"There's really no such thing as a
moral victory," Dunn said. "We ran out
of people due to injuries, and that
could be a big problem down the road
this season. We're a very disappointed
team right now."

Drennan, who kicks with his left

"IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME TO HAVE
MY CONTACT LENSES FITTED PROPERLY.
Like most people, I'm on the go alot. I tried contact lenses a
few years ago and was never really happy. Wearing contacts
helped my vision but they became a hassle because of the mild
discomfort and occasional fuzzy vision.
I asked several of my friends who wear contacts to recom
mend a specialist, and moM of them recommended Dr. Powell
at the International Contact Lens Clinic.
I went to their clinic for a no charge consultation to talk about
new contact lenses. Their office offers complete contact lens services
and complete optical services including:
thorough examination, individual fitting, and close supervision
curbside parking, convenient central Lincoln location
appointments available evenings, lunch hours, and Saturdays
eight week trial program for -
close observation of comfort and eye health
lens strength or fitting modification if indicated
no charge for damaged lenses
spare glasses, sunglasses and special solutions for sensitive eyes
a continuing care program future upgrading of contact
lenses as scientific progress is made.
I decided to have them fit my eyes and I was very comfortable with
their professional approach, their fees, and their thoroughness.
Everyone in their office helped me become a successful wearer. I
consider their office outstanding, and I recommend them to all my
