CU upset reflects Big 12 parity
NCAA grants Hadenfelt
sixth year of eligibility
From Staff Reports
Nebraska punter Dan
Hadenfelt got a rare sixth year of
eligibility last Thursday from the
NCAA, giving the Comhuskers a
much stronger special teams for
the 2000 season.
Hadenfelt played sparingly in
his first four seasons at Nebraska,
and not at all in 1995, while recov
ering from back surgery. Other
injuries led him to ask for a med
ical hardship, which was granted
under NCAA bylaw 30.6.1.
But in 1999, he blossomed as a
punter, getting the best average
ever for a Husker at 44.98 yards
(minimum 60 attempts).
“I was very excited to hear the
news,” Hadenfelt said. “I had an
opportunity to try out for the NFL
if this didn’t go through. I talked
about it with my parents, and we
are all sure that coming back to
Nebraska is the right thing for me.
“I will graduate this summer,
and I am anxious to be able to con
tribute another year.”

If Jaquay Walls misses an impos
sible 42-foot 3-pointer as time runs
out in regulation against Iowa State,
then Colorado doesn’t get the head
lines in Sunday’s papers.
Improbably, Walls hits the three,
and Colorado wins in overtime. Walls
winds up with 42 points, a record for
Big 12 play and the most at Colorado
since 1971. And for the second time
in three weeks, he gets honored as
conference player of the week.
Colorado gets its fourth win in
five games and improved to 15-10
overall and 5-7 in league play.
The Buffs may well remember
that shot as the bucket that saved their
season. Or they might come off their
second win against a ranked team this
year and lose to Baylor on

Since then, Colorado has had a

What the Buffs are looking at
right now is an outside shot at the

said: “There is no question they are
good enough to be in the NCAAs.”
But to get in, the Buffs will have
to concentrate on the rest of their
schedule. The Buffs have already
played the meatiest part of their
schedule. Three of their next four
games include Baylor and Texas Tech
at home and Nebraska on the road -
all teams at the bottom of the league.
Their other game is at conference

that they win three of four, the Buffs
would conceivably finish out at a
