Wrestlers crush OU
in dual season finale
From Staff Reports
No. 2 Nebraska ended its regu
lar season in a big way Wednesday,
pounding Oklahoma 33-6'in a dual
in Norman, Okla.
After losing the 118-pound
match, the Comhuskers wonseven
consecutive weight classes to take
a 28-3 lead and never looked back.
At 142 pounds, Nebraska’s Mike
Eierman scored a 14-6 major deci
sion over William Gay. That win
put Eierman in good position for
the Big Eight Tournament, accord
ing to Husker coachTim Neumann.
“That win pretty much guaran
tees Eierman the No. 1 seed in the
Big Eights,” Neumann said. “It
will probably move him into the
top six in the national rankings
At 158 pounds, Nebraska’s Matt
Lindland pinned the Sooners’ Heath
Martin in 1:52 and finished the
regular season 34-0.
Corev Olson, ranked No. 2 at
177 pounds, scored a 19-4 techni
cal fall over Oklahoma’s Quincy
“Corey Olson looked phenom
enal tonight,” Neumann said. “Ev
eryone really wrestled great. It’s
really great to come down here and
dominate them like we did.”
The dual completed Nebraska’s
dual season at 10-2. The Huskers
will next be in action on March 6 in
Norman at the Big Eight Champi
In addition, two seniors, John
Buxton and Rick Coltvet, were
named to the first team. Buxton, a
computer science major, made the
first team for the fourth consecu
tive year. He has a 3.68 grade point
Coltvet, an electrical engineer

“We had a great one with (Indiana
basketball coach) Bobby Knight who
supposedly got all bent out of shape
and wouldn’t talk to the network for
something I said,” Olbermann said.

“There are certain people who are
notorious as being ultrasensitive; you
just let that stuff go off your back.”
He said he was a lot happier with
the quality of production at ESPN
than what he experienced in Los An
“The problem was it was a terrible
broadcast; it was just a monstrosity,
especially with the garbage we put on
the air out there,” Olbermann said.
“In LA, I was out on a raft with the
other drowning survivors of a ship
wreck, and the Kiwi 2 came by and
they said ‘Hey, we want you to come
on and be captain.”’
Olbermann added that it was prob
ably his special zest that helped him
get his promotion from Los Angeles
to ESPN, so he’s not going to change
“I’ve been doing it this way since
I was at college,” said the Cornell
graduate. “It’s what I need to do to
keep it interesting to me.”
And that’s what keeps it interest
ing for the rest of us as well.

Win over Buffaloes keeps
Chandler’s record perfect
By Derek Samson
Derrick Chandler pulled down a
game-high 14 rebounds in Nebraska’s
76-67 victory Wednesday over Colo
rado, but he also earned sole posses
sion of bragging rights with his good
friend, Colorado center Poncho
“This is a great win,’’ Chandler
said. “Now I’m 4-0 against my best
Chandler scored 12 points to go
along with his 14 rebounds, including
an eight of 12 performance from the
free throw line.
Hodges, a former teammate of
Chandler’s at Alvin (Texas) Commu
nity College, also scored 12 points,
but only came away with three re
“It’s hard for me to play against
him because I always want him to do
good,” Chandler said. “Once when he
made a free throw I caught myself
clapping and then I just have to re
member it’s Nebraska versus Colo
rado, not just Poncho.”
Not only did Chandler help Ne
braska win, but he also beat Hodges in
the stat column.
“We look at who won or lost first
and that’s the most important,” Hodges
said. “Then we will argue over who
had the better game. Then we start
saying, 'You got me on this game’ or
'I got you against them, but you still
Going 0-4 against Chandler and
the Cornhuskers was something
Hodges didn’t expect.
“He has the bragging rights, but it
was fun. I had hoped to get them at
least once before it was over,” Hodges
said. “(The game) was there for the
taking and we didn’t get it.
“We had too many turnovers,”
Hodges said. “If we had taken care of
the ball, it could have been a different
Hodges also battled the Nebraska
crowd, sparring with fans with nu
merous verbal exchanges.
“I did it to his crowd, too,” Chan
dler said. ‘‘It gets us pumped up too,
when we see someone going at it with
Chandler said that it may not be the
two friends’ last time to meet on the
“We’re not done yet. Whether it
will be in the NBA or overseas, we’ll
meet up again,” he said, “f think he
has a good chance of playing pro ball
and so do I, so we could be going at it
Hodges said (me reason for the
game being so tight throughout was
the Huskers looking past Colorado to
“I don’t think they were fired up at
all,” Hodges said. r‘They came out
and played pretty lackadaisical, but
we didn’t take advantage of the op
portunity to get the win.”
Osborne approves Byrne’s effort
to toughen NU football schedule
By Susie Arth
Nebraska football coach Tom
Osborne said a possible four-game
series between the Comhuskers and
the University of Iowa would be good
for the program.
“I think it would be a good series,"
he said. “It’s fairly close for the fans
to travel back and forth."
The Omaha World-Herald reported
Wednesday that NU athletic director
Bill Byrne was attempting to close a
deal with Iowa that would begin in
The article also said Byrne was
corresponding with officials from the
University of Southern California,
Michigan and Notre Dame about simi
But Byrne said he did not intend to
spill the story to the press.
“I’m not going to talk about future
schedules until I have a signed con
tract,” he said.
But Byrne verified that he was
talking to officials from the four
Byrne said his tentative plan was to
add each of the schools to the Husker
schedule in different years.
Byrne said the possible matchups
would add better competition to the
“Our goal is to play the best teams
in America,” he said. “We want to
have games like this, but we still will
have the ever-popular Utah States on
our schedule because we don’t have
Byrne and Osborne agreed that a
major concern was that the Huskers
maintain six or seven home games
“Financially speaking, you’d like
to have no fewer than six home games
one year and seven the next,” Osborne
said. “So you have to schedule some
teams that would come and not set up
a return engagement.”
The Huskers are now scheduled to
play four non-conference games in
1996 — the University of Nevada
Las Vegas, Michigan State, Arizona
State and Colorado State. Thus, Ne
braska would have to drop a team
from its current schedule.
The NCAA allows each team to
play 11 games per season, and seven
of the Huskers’ games are with Big
Bad winter slows down golfers start
From Staff Reports
For the second straight weekend,
the Nebraska men’s golf team will be
working to get the winter kinks out.
The Comhuskers will travel to
Tampa, Fla., to compete in the South
Florida Invitational Friday through
Nebraska coach Lany Romjue said
the meet would help him in his post
winter evaluation of the team.
“The first couple of tournaments
we see where we need the work,”
Romjue said. “Because this winter
has been horrible, we’re starting from
a little further back."
Last weekend, the Huskers com
peted in the Crown Colony Invita
tional in Lufkin, Texas, and finished
12th out of 15 teams. Nebraska scored
a 334 the first day and was never able
to recover, Romjue said.
“It was our first shot outside and it
was against a pretty good field,”
Romjue said. “I fell with a normal
performance, we could’ve finished
anywhere from sixth to eighth."
One highlight for the Huskers was
the performance of junior Craig Poet,

who finished eighth individually with

“I know Craig's a good player,”
Romjue said. ‘‘He’s got the kind of
game that will come out of the winter
and be pretty good.”
Romjue said this weekend would
help his team get ready for what he
calls ‘‘the crucial stretch” between
spring break and the Big Eight Tour
nament April 26-27.
‘‘The first three tournaments set us
up for that stretch,” Romjue said.
“They help us know where we’re at.”
