Male intramural sports may be restructured
By Jeff Apel
Senior Editor
A suggestion that male intramural
sports be restructured so Greek and
residence hall students will interact
better was met favorably by Campus
Recreation Director Stan Campbell.
Campbell said the Office of Cam
pus Recreation would be willing to re
structure its five intramural sports that
don’t allow Greek and residence hall
students to face one another until
championship games. He said those
sports include flag football, slow
pitch softball, outdoor soccer, basket
ball and volleyball.
Campbell said campus recreation
classified Greek and residence hall
students into different competitive
categories even before he arrived nine
years ago. He said residence hall and
off-campus students also used to be in
different categories, but that system
was scrapped to bring the two groups
closer together.
“In all honesty, I don’t think it
made a whole lot of difference,”
Campbell said.
Campbell said he doesn’t know if
letting Greek and residence hall stu
dents face one another more often
would help break the animosity that
exists between the two groups. A
campuswide committee, formed in
response to the snowball fights that
plagued the University of Nebraska
Lincoln late last year, suggested prob
lems thatcxist between the two groups
could be solved if they were allowed
to interact more often in intramurals.
Campbell said Greek and resi
dence hall students compete through
out the season in female intramurals
and most of the male sports. He said
the five male sports are an exception
because so many students participate.
Campbell said any change would
have to be approved by the campus
recreation advisory council. He said
that council consists of Greek, resi
dence hall and off-campus students as
well as Office of Campus Recreation
staff members.
James Griesen, vice chancellor for
student affairs and a committee
member, said any actions taken at this
time would be premature because the
suggestions are still in their develop
mental stages. The remaining sugges
tions brought up at the December
meeting included reorganizing the
Association of Studentsof the Univer
sity of Nebraska. The committee felt
this would give residence hall stu
dents more representation and in
crease interests in University Founda
tion classes, so residence hall students
could be involved in more activities.
Griesen said he will meet with Russ
Johnson, president of the Residence
Hall Association; representatives
from the Abel-Sandoz Residence and
Panhellenic associations; and two or
three other students sometime next
week to turn suggestions into reality.
He said the process has been de
layed because of the three-week se
mester break.
Neumann optimistic about wrestling meets
By Chuck Green
Senior Reporter
Optimism is a trait required in
coaching, and Nebraska wrestling
coach Tim Neumann refuses to let a
shutout ruin his.
Nebraska lost to No. 4-rankcd Iowa
40-0 last Saturday in Iowa City, where
the Hawkeyes haven’t lost in four
years. It was the first time the Corn
huskers were blanked since a 1979
loss to Missouri by the same margin.
“We honestly went into the dual
with Iowa thinking we could win it,”
Neumann said. “I know that sounds
strange given the score, but we even
left thinking that if we had wrestled
our normal style, we’d have won five
of the 10 matches.”
Nebraska, now 2-2 in dual meets
this season, will try to rebound against
North Dakota Friday in Grand Forks,
and North Dakota State Saturday in
Fargo. Neumann said the Huskers are
ready to redeem themselves.
“Really, the loss affected the kids
in a positive way,” he said. “They’re
working harder in practice. I thought
we were working hard before.”
North Dakota and North Dakota
State are ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in Divi
sion II, “which is the equivalent of
where we’re ranked (No. 19) in Divi
sion I,” Neumann said.
“They have senior-laden teams
with some really quality upperclass
men,” Neumann said. “The crowd
could also be a factor. Usually, they
get 200 people to their meets, but
against us they draw 1,000 or more.”
North Dakota State defeated Ne
braska 25-15 in a dual meet last sea
son, “and they’ve got everybody
back,” Neumann said.
North Dakota beat North Dakota
Stale last week.
Neumann said the Huskers have
been working on technique this week
during practice, especially in setting
up for take-downs.
“We had problems with that at
Iowa,” Neumann said. “We’ve got to
be less tentative on our feet. There’s a
certain point in a match when you can
take an opponent down, and we
weren’t taking those opportunities
against Iowa.”
Neumann said the score against the
Hawkeycs wasn’t indicative of how
far Nebraska’s level of competition is
from Iowa’s, which has won eight
national wrestling championships in
the last 10 years.
“The thing that makes that clear is
that we’ve beaten some of their people
before,” he said. “We had five kids
wrestling for us from Iowa, and I
thought that would help us, but it
actually worked against us. They were
a little in awe of the Iowa program,
having grown up there.
“We were trying to explain to them
that this was a Iowa team, not the
teams that won all the national cham
Nebraska will complete it’s road
trip against Minnesota Sundav in
Minneapolis. Nebraska’s first home
dual meet of the season will be Jan. 30
against No. 6-ranked Northern Iowa.
Kansas estate to open Big bight season against booners
By Tim Hartmann
V Senior Reporter
Despite reluming four starters
from last year’s 20-11 team, Kansas
State coach Lon Kruger said the Wild
cats’ experience has not been a factor
this season.
Kansas State finished fourth in the
Big Eight Tournament last season and
advanced to the second round of the
NCAA Tournament The Wildcats
defeated Georgia 82-79 in the
tournament’s first round and then lost
to thcn-No. 1-ranked Nevada-Las
Vegas 80-61.
“We would like to think that they
have been through it all and that
helps,” Kruger said. “But then again
we have played without consistency
so far.”
Kansas State, 7-4, opens its Big
Eight season Saturday against No. 3
ranked Oklahoma. Kruger said Okla
homa, Missouri and Kansas are the
teams to beat in the conference.
Kruger said the Wildcats will have
a big home court advantage against
Oklahoma. Kansas State, which was
10-3 at Ahcam Field House last year,
has won almost HO percent of the
games it has played there since the
fieldhouse opened in 1950.
“I think that’s always a factor in the

Big Eight,” Kruger said. “The crowds
are big and noisy everywhere.”
This will be the last year that the
Wildcats will play in Ahcarn Field
House. Next season Kansas State will
play its home games in the 13,500
seat Fred Bramlage Coliseum, which
is under construction.
Kruger, who was the Big Eight
Player of the Year in 1972-73 and
1973-74, said one of the big obstacles
that the Wildcats will face this season
There are 3 parts to a trip Going,

you leam to fly you can be sure
that at least 2/3 of the trip will be

is a lack of height.
Kansas State’s starting front line
consists of 6-foot-7 center Fred
McCoy, 6-7 forward Charles Bledsoe
and 6-5 forward Mitch Richmond.
The two tallest players on the team are
6-9 reserves Ron Meyer and John
Kruger said Richmond, a senior
who earned second-team all-Big
Eight honors last season, will be a key
player this year. He said Richmond is
the player that the team will go to in a
“key situation.”
Richmond leads the team in scor
ing with a 21.7 points-per-game aver
age. Senior guard Will Scott, who
Finished sixth in the country in three
point shooting last season while hit
ting 52.9 percent of his three-point
shots, is second with an 11.5 average.
Kansas State’s remaining starter is
sophomore guard Steve Henson, who
started 22 games as a freshman.
