MANHATTAN, Kan. — Kansas
State quarterback Chad May walked
through the doors in the press room
and literally pushed his way through
the swarm of reporters to a chair in
the middle of
___ the room.
And that was
the first time
May was on the
other side of the
May and the
' No. 16 Wildcats
May 17-6, May made
known about the Cornhuskers' style
“I don't want to talk bad about
them, because they’re a great football
team, but they do play dirty," he said
“Once they tried poking niy eyes out
and tried to gouge my eyes. They were
grabbing me in places I'm sure you
don’t want to even hear about.
“We don’t need all that cheap stuff.
I’d rather just go out and play the
Dirty or not, the Nebraska defense
shut down May, sacking the senior
six times for 53 yards.
The Huskers gave up 249 yards
passing to May on Saturday, a year
after he threw for a Big Eight-record
489 yards in Lincoln.
But May was slow to deal Ne
braska any compliments.
“They're the best team we've
played so far." May said. “They have
a good football team and have good
schemes on defense. But they're go
ing to get beat somewhere along the
line. They won't go undefeated."
Saying Nebraska was a “good”
football team was as far as May —
who is 0-2 against the Cornhuskers
— would go.
“I don't think they're a great team
— they’re definitely beatable.” May
said. “A great team goes out and
doesn't make many mistakes, and
that’s not Nebraska. No, I don't think
they’re a great team at all.”
Mav said he could not identify the
Husker who poked his eye during the
second quarter, but he didn't appre
“I know it was on purpose.'' May
said. "He was reaching around my
helmet and got his hand inside my
face mask and was grabbing around.
Once he got to my eye. he tried goug
ing my eye out w ith two fingers
"If you're going to play football.
you don't need that dirt. They
• * • »
would've won the game anyway w ith
out doing that, so they didn't need to
be doing that stuff.”
One call May was quick to point
out was Donta Jones' late hit in the
Kansas State was whistled for de
lay of game, calling the play dead,
but the offensive lineman continued
to block Jones, who hit May. May was
still standing with the ball partially
cocked back to throw.
“He (Jones) got up and was tell
ing the official that he didn't hear the
whistle.” May said "But what good
docs that do me? I 'm laying there on
the ground from a late hit. There were
a couple other hits that were late that
didn’t get called, too.”
Nebraska coach Tom Osborne said
Sunday he thought Jones did not hear
the whistle before he hit May.
“Sometimes what happens is the
play is under way. and it gets noisy
in there on the pass rush.” Osborne
said “I'm convinced Donta didn't
hear it ”
Osborne said he was sorry if the
Husker defense didn't treat May well,
but he said playing dirty was not typi
cal of a Nebraska team.
“I'm sorry if he got poked in the
eye. and I'm sorry if anybody did it
deliberately.” Osborne said. “But I
don't remember Charlie Ward saying
anything like that. I would be con
cerned if there was a consistent pat
May admitted that rough play was
a part of football but said Nebraska
look it too far.
“There's always going to be trash
talking.” he said. “After the game,
everything is fine and dandy, but it's
war out there during the game. I just
don’t think there is any need for the
cheap stuff that went on out there.”
