    Huskers needed slap; Colorado supplied it
NU’s season can go two ways
Nebraska coach Danny Nee should
have walked up to Colorado coach
Joe Harrington, shook his hand and
said, “Thanks, we needed that.”
The Colorado Buffaloes slapped
the Nebraska men’s basketball team
Tuesday — slapped them hard, slapped
them silly, slapped them around,
d them down.

Huskers awake remains to be seen.
The Huskers had better wake up,
or they’ll spend March through No
vember saying, “A lot of learns would
be happy with a 23-10 record, espe
cially teams that arc coming off 10
18 seasons!”
Whatever. A lot of teams don’t
have the talent that Nebraska has. A
lot of teams aren’t 16-2.
A 23-10 season is terrible if you
have the potential to go 28-8.
Nebraska has that potential. From
a longer perspective, the 1990-91
Huskers aren’t the surprise team, the
1989-90 Huskers are the surprise team.
How could they have been so bad last
How could they be so bad Tues
day? The Huskers went out and acted
like they had ESPN camera cords
wrapped tightly around their necks.
This wasn’t a case of choking,
though. This wasn’t a case of Ne
braska being overrated, either. From
the last six minutes of the Michigan
State game through the first half of
the Toledo contest, they were a top
10 team.
Nebraska simply hasn’t played well
in a month and a half. When the
Huskers jumped out to a great start,
no one but the people who went to
their games knew how good they were
playing. When the Huskers screwed
around through a dozen more wins,
no one but the people who went to
their games knew how poorly they
were playing.
The nine-day break preceding
Tuesday ’ s game was supposed to take
care of the slump. The idea was to
take a few days off, not play for more
than a week and start fresh in sort of a
new season.
Well, in that new season, they’re
0-1. The entire country sees how poorly
the Huskers arc playing.
Now Nee has some leverage. In
stead of spending practices and film
sessions saying, “This is why you
didn’t beat them by more points,” he
can say, "This is why you got crushed.”
The Huskers aren’t good in their
half-court offense. They don’t force
many turnovers with pressure defense.
The team is short on shooters.

If you thought that finding a color
Macintosh system you could afford
was just a dream, then the new,
affordable Macintosh LC is a dream
come taie.
The Macintosh LC is rich in color.
Unlike many computers that can
display only 16 colors at once, the
Macintosh LC expands your palette
to 256 colors. It also comes with a
microphone and new sound-inpul
technology that lets you personal i/e
your work by adding voice or other
u ke every Macintosh computer, the
LC is easy to set up and easy to master.
And it runs thousands of available
applications that all work in the same,
consistent way-so once you've learned
one program, you're well on your way
to learning them all. The Macintosh LC
even lets you share information with
someone who uses a different type of
computer-thanks to the versatile Apple
Superdrive, which can read from and
write to Macintosh, MS-DOS, OS/2, and
Apple II floppy disks.
Take a look at the Macintosh LC and
sec what it gives you. Then pinch
yourself. It's better than a dream-it's a

Women’s swimming and div
ing: Coach Ray Huppert said his
team is working lighter at practice
and is emphasizing more rest after
meets ... The 20th-ranked Com
huskers will face Missouri Satur
day at the Bob Devaney Sports
Center pool. The dual will begin at
1:30 p.m. . . . Huppert said the
Tigers, who have finished last in
the four-team Big Eight swimming
competition, are improved. “I don’t
expect them as a team to cause us
damage, but they have some indi
viduals who couid challenge our
swimmers,” he said. . . . Jenny
Melrose, a freshman frecstyler and
backstroker from Scffncr, Fla., is
out for the rest of the season, Hup
pert said. A blood clot was de
tected Monday in her lung, and she
will be out of training for at least
four weeks. She will redshirt,
Huppert said.
Wrestling: Assistant Coach Gil
Sanchez said the injury situation is
getting better. Scott Chenoweth,
the starter at 167, and 190-pounder
Corey Olson probably will wrestle
against Wyoming Friday night at
the Sports Center arena. The dual
starts at 7:30.
Men’s gymnastics: The Huskcr
gymnasts also are fighting back
from the injury trail . . . Coach
Francis Allen said his main con
cern this weekend at the Big Eight
Triangular — which includes Olda
homa, Iowa State and the Huskers
— is staying close to Oklahoma.
“Right now, I think they’re the best
team in the country,” he said. “We’rc
not in physical condition to go out
there and beat them. We might be
when we’re healthy, though.” ...
Allen said at least three of his best
performers — Che Bowers, Ted
Dimas and Dennis Harrison — might
not compete in the triangular.
