Nebraska freshman quarterback Mike Grant opens the day’s
scoring with a 33-yard run in the 1st quarter of the Corn
huskers' 86-3 pounding of St. Thomas’ junior varsity.
Husker JV beats St. Thomas
with record-breaking score
By Kyle Schurman
Staff Reporter
Monday was not a good day for the
St. Thomas (Minn.) junior varsity
football team.
One example: The Tommies
forced Nebraska to punt for the first
time midway through the4th quarter.
The Husker center’s snap sailed over
the punter’s head and bounced back
wards to the Nebraska 25-yard line.
After a few St. Thomas players
couldn’t pick up the football, it
bounced into Husker I-back Andre
Me Duffy’s hands. Me Duffy broke a
couple of Sl Thomas tackles and
relumed the fumble 75 yards for an
apparent Nebraska touchdown.
But, in one of the few lucky breaks
for the Tommies all day, the touch
down was called back because of a
If only Nebraska’s other 12 touch
downs also had been called back, St.
Thomas could have forged a 3-3 tie
with the Huskers instead of suffering
a record-breaking 86-3 loss before
10,166 fans.
The Husker JV’s broke the scoring
record set in 1983 during a 71-7 win
over William Jewell’s JV’s. Actually,
the Huskers broke the record with 31
seconds left in the 3rd quarter when
Bob McGriff recovered a blocked

punt in the end zone, giving the Husk
ers a 73-3 lead.
Nebraska held the ball for only
four plays and 39 seconds in the first
6:33 of the game, but still built a 21
0 lead. On the Huskcrs’ second offen
sive play, quarterback Mike Grant
scampered 33 yards for a touchdown.
Grant threw 47 yards to Jon Bostick
for a score on the Huskcrs’ next offen
sive play.
And then, after Darin Duin
blocked a St. Thomas punt — which
rolled out-of-bounds at the Tommies ’
1-yard line — I-back Scott Baldwin
dived over the left side to give the
Huskers a three-touchdown lead.
The teams traded field goals be

an interception 27 yards for a touch

“Our tests are all administered by
a lab in California, I think it’s the
UCLA Medical Center,” Osborne
said. “It’s the most sophisticated test
in the world. The tests for the Olym
pic athletes arc administered by the
same people.”
Steroids are even picked up
through masking agents by the lab,
Osborne said.
“There are over 100 masking
agents that their system is sensitive
to,” he said.
Besides steroids, Osborne said, the
Nebraska team also has been tested
for street drugs beginning in 1983.
“You don’t have to do steroids to
be a good player,” Osborne said.
“There’s a lot of good football players
and great athletes that don’t get in
volved in that kind of thing. If you
work hard in the weight room and arc
really dedicated, you can be good
without using drugs.
“I think the game is much cleaner
now then it was in the 1970’s.”
