When Nebraska I-back Keith Jones
hobbled a kickoff in the third quarter
of the Cornhuskers' 56-6 win over Kan
sas Saturday, he knew he had better do
something quickly or risk a tongue
lashing from his coach.
"The first thing I thought about
when I dropped it is that I had better
make up for it because (running back
coach Frank) Solich was going to be on
Jones made up for his miscue when
he picked up the ball at the Nebraska
2-yard line, ran to his left and outraced
the Jayhawks' coverage down the side
line for a 98-yard touchdown. That,
score gave the Huskers a 47-6 lead.
Two Jayhawk defenders had an angle
on him near midfield, but Jones used
his 4.33 speed in the 40-yard dash to get
"I thought I had better sprint to the
end zone," he said.
As he jogged to the sidelines after
the score, Jones received congratula
tions from his teammates, but he said
Solich's reaction was delayed.
"He just glared at me," Jones said,
Dropped 95-68 decision to Sooners
Czechs will test Huskers, Iba says
By Jeff Apel
Nebraska coach Moe Iba may get a
taste of just how tough basketball in
the Big Eight conference is going to be
this year when the Cornhuskers host
the Bratislava Club in an exhibition
game tonight at the Bob Devaney Sports
Iba said he expects a tough game
from the Czechoslovakian team largely
because of their European style of bas
ketball. For instance, he said, the
Czechs have a unique shooting form
and an abundance of skip passes.
"I just watched them on film and
they are a very disciplined team," Iba
said. "They have got two big post men
who could give us problems just because
of their height."
So far this season, the Czech squad

Munford out for season
With about 10 minutes remaining
in the second quarter of Nebraska's
56-6 win over Kansas Saturday, Corn
husker linebacker Marc Munford
stopped KU running back Arnold
Fields after a 13-yard gain.
But Munford, a junior from Lit
tleton, Colo., didn't get up after the
tackle. He was helped off the field
by trainers and was taken to the
Huskers' locker room to examine
damage to his right knee.

Jones, a sophomore, has played spar
ingly behind junior I-back Doug DuBose
and senior Paul Miles this season. He
said he doesn't mind coming off the
bench and he likes to take advantage of
an opportunity when he does get to
play just like he did Saturday.
Jones' third quarter touchdown was

Although the Czechs dropped a 95
68 decision to the Sooners, Iba said the
European squad still concerns him.
"They play some excellent basket
ball," he said. "One of the positive
things we will get out of this game is we
will be able to tell how we compare to
Oklahoma at this time once we look at
Iba said he plans to start Brian Carr
and Harvey Marshall at the guard posi
tions and Dave Hoppen at center. The
two forwards may not be named until
right before the game, Iba said.
"The forward position may be a
place where we rotate our starters all
season long because of the depth we
have there this year," Iba said. "That is
one thing we have much of on this
year's team that we had last year-depth."

coach Tom Osborne said Munford
will miss the rest of the season and
will possibly miss spring practice.
Although no replacement has been
named yet, Nebraska defensive co
ordinator Charlie McBride said he
plans to give freshman linebacker
LeRoy Etienne more varsity work-4&
practice this week.
"If we can zero him in on the
wishbone, he's the kind of guy who
can play against Oklahoma," McBride
the Huskers' first kickoff returned for a
touchdown in four years. Mike Rozier
returned one 93 yards against Okla
homa State in 1981.
Several other Huskers set personal
and team highs against the Jayhawks,
O Dale Klein, whose 32-yard field
goal tied the score at 3-3 early in the
game. The kick gave Klein 13 field
Iba said he will try and accomplish
several things during the game includ
ing evaluating all 12 players. He said he
is anxious to see how his team per

missing in last Wednesday's intrasquad
"This game will show us a lot more
than the Red-White game did just
because we are playing an opponent
other than ourselves," he said. "You
can only play against each other for so
long before it starts to lose its effective
ness." The Huskers also will have the op
portunity to smooth out any rough
spots in their game, Iba said.
With the official season opener just
five days away, Iba said extra practice

Skow's sack was one of eight the

Norseth said he was impressed by
the Huskers' pass rush.
"A lot of times I wasn't ready to
throw the ball," he said. "They had a
good rush, but regardless, we still have
to execute. There were times when I
was hurried, Hi Fcfon't think that was
the case all the time."
Kansas coach MiKe Gottfried agreed
with Norseth. He said the Jayhawks
couldn't capitalize on forced turnovers.
For example, after Paul Miles
fumbled the opening kickoff, the Jay
hawks failed to move the ball and had
to settle for a field goal, Gottfried said.
He said the Jayhawks' offense, defense
and kicking game was lacking.
"It was just a complete cave in," he
said. "We just didn't do anything righC
more complete team we have to improve
in all areas of our game," he said. "How
we progress in the next couple of
weeks is definitely going to have a
major impact on how we do this

from Chicago, has chosen to attend
Tulsa instead of Nebraska.
Jenkins, who currently attends Carver
High School in Chicago, was the only

"I wasn't really surprised when I
heard that he had chosen Tulsa because
he was an excellent player and we

Nebraska's win, coupled with Okla

Charlie McBride said the Huskers' de
fense may need a little extra help to

"We. plan to go to church starting

"If you don't stop the big play against
Oklahoma they'll just eat you alive."
