Moore ready to ruin NU season
By Mike Kluck
Staff Reporter
Beating Nebraska won’t make
Oklahoma’s season or make up for the
Sooners’ 5-4-1 record, but it would
give junior halfback Jerald Moore a
little satisfaction.
“We’ve had a bad season, but this
I won’t make our season,” Moore said.
“We will feel better about our season
] i i we can make someone else’s season
j as oad as ours because we won’t feel
i as bad then. If we beat Nebraska. I’m
j pretiv sure that will make them feel
j bad about their season.”
The iast two years, Moore and the
j Sooners had that opportunity. The
j Sooners t wice fat!ed to ruin Nebraska' s
i undefeated record.
They’d get another try on Friday at
i Memorial Stadium.
Besides a shot at ruining Nebraska's
1 season, tne game also gi ves Moore an
! opportunity to gain 1,000 yards rush
j ing this so'M n.
I *"*
Although Moore had to sit out the
* tuwa State game with a toe injury, he
: stilt leads the Oklahoma rushing at
j tack averaging 106.9 yards a game
j and 6.4 yards a carry. He only necd.>
3X varus to surpass the 1,000-yard
mark.
Moore said he would wait until the
end of the season before he decided on
returning to Oklahoma next season or
declaring himself eligible for the Na
tional Football League draft.
But Moore has his eyes set on the
Sooner offense as a whole. For the
Sooners to defeat Nebraska,
Oklahoma’s offense needs to be suc
cessful.
“We need to have a ball control
offense, and we have to keep the ball
away from their offense,” Moore said.
“We need to keep our defense off the
field, and we can’t go three downs and
out.”
Oklahoma’s offensive success,
Moore said, depends on being able to
preserve a lead late in the game and on
executing through all phases of the
game.
But too often the Sooners have
sputtered this year. Moore said the
low point came on Nov. 11, when they
were shut out by Oklahoma State. The
Cowboys defeated Oklahoma 12-0 for
the Sooners’ first shutout loss since
1983.
Although Moore said he hadn .
been able to find any flaws in either
the Nebraska offense or defense, the
Sooners do have an advantage over
the Huskers.

basketball team prepares
for Hawaiian challenge
By Todd Walkenhorst
Staff Reporter
A week in Hawaii may be just what
the Nebraska basketball team needs to
get ready for the upcoming season.
The Cornhuskers arrived in Hilo,
Hawaii, on Friday to begin prepara
tions for the Big Island Invitational.
Coach Danny Nee planned to practice
seven times in Hilo before Friday’s
season opener against Toledo.
For one Husker senior, this week
end will mark the beginning of the
end. Senior guard Erick Strickland—
along with Jar on Boone, Terrance
Badgett, Jason Glock, Chris Sallee
and Tom Wald — will finish up their
careers this season.
“It flew by kind of quick,”
Strickland said, “but I’m happy with
my career here at Nebraska. I’m not
happy it’s about over. I hope to go out
with a bang and be successful in my
final year.”
The Huskers and Toledo will be
two ofeight teams participating in the
invitational. Wichita State, Utah State,
Minnesota, Valparaiso, Oregon and
Hawaii-Hilo round out the invite. Both
Minnesota and Oregon played in last
year’s NCAA Tournament.
This year’s Husker squad will be
one filled with youth, Strickland said,
and this weekend will be an early test
of the team’s chemistry.
“We’ve been working real hard as
a team,” Strickland said. “We still
have quite a few things that have to
gel; we've still got a lot of young
guys.”
One test for the Huskers will be
freshman point guard Tyronn Lue.
Strickland said Lue’s defense would
be a great addition to the team.
“Tyronn really gets after you de
fensively,” he said. “He really gets
after the point guard. He’s become
quite a floor leader. He kndws when to
slow it down. That helps us also.”
• The Huskers will takeon Toledoat
6:15 Friday night. Toledo finished
1994 with a 16-11; the Huskers fin
ished 18-14.
Frazier has
smooth day
From Staff Reports
Nebraska coach Tom
Osborne said Monday that star' -
ing quarterback Tommie Frazier
went through the entire practice
j without difficulty.
The Cornhuskers continued
preparation for Friday’s game
against Oklahoma. Wingback
Jon Vedral did not practice be
cause of a groin injury. Defen
sive back Mike Fullman injured
his knee Monday alter he slipped *
on a wet spot on the field. He
probably will practice today.
Osbc^ne also said that redshirt
I freshman quarterback Frankie
London would have shoulder
surgery today.
“He’s got a shoulder that’s
slipping a little,” Osborne said.
Osborne was shocked to learn
that Nebraska was favored by 3 3
points over the Sooncrs.
“I hope the gamblers know
j more than I do,” Osborne said.
