Regent: Don't consider Perlman for job
PERLMAN from page 1
Blank told the Daily Nebraskan.
“He is so overwhelmingly in the minority,”
Blank said. "If Perlman’s selected, the university
will be in good hands.”
Blank defended Perlman’s speaking out
against Initiative 416.
“He responded to a question,” Blank said.
“That’s his responsibility to answer it It would
have been totally wrong had he not responded
to the question.”
Waterloo Regent Nancy O’Brien would not
comment on whether it was right for Allen to
write such a letter. But she did tell the Daily
Nebraskan it was common for Allen to voice his
opinion on things he was unhappy about
“Bob Allen has made a practice of speaking
his opinion on chancellors and what he thinks
is proper and improper behavior,” O’Brien said.
“It needs to be clear Bob Allen is speaking only
Lyons Regent Chuck Hassebrook said
Allen’s letter wouldn’t change his mind that
Perlman is a strong candidate for permanent
As for Perlman’s speaking out against
Initiative 416, Hassebrook said the interim
chancellor had a right to his opinion, as does
any university employee. Perlman could have
been more clear, though, in stating that his
stance against Initiative 416 was personal and
not university policy, he said.
Richard Wood, university general counsel,
said Allen's letter did not violate the university's
anti-discrimination policy, which said the uni
versity would not discriminate “because of an
individual’s race, color, sex, religion, national
origin, age, disability, marital status, sexual ori
entation or political affiliation.”
Before reading the letter, Wood said it
would be in violation of university policy if it
concerned someone being hired or not hired
based on his or her characteristics.
After the Daily Nebraskan provided a copy
of the letter to Wood, he said it was merely a
statement of opinion.
“I’m mystified (someone could) think this is
a violation of university policy,” Wood said.
“The board of regents is a group of eight men,
not just one man.”
Linda Crump, assistant to the chancellor
for equity, access and diversity programs,
agreed with Wood.
“I don’t see how someone expressing indi
vidual views violates any policy,” she said.

ISSUES from page 1
Sept 21 debate.
“I’ll base my decision on
whether I think they’re going to
limit themselves to following the
Constitution as intended by the
Founding Fathers or whether
they’ll use the Constitution to
impose their own social views,” he
said in the same debate.
Both candidates also support
Initiative 416, which would ban
same-sex marriages or other
same-sex arrangements such as
civil unions or domestic partner
Stenberg said marriage should
be reserved for unions between a
man and a woman.
“I think homosexuality is
immoral and not something that
should be encouraged by our soci
ety,” he said. “I don’t think we
should take action against homo
sexuality in any way, but I don’t
think we should support it in any
way with our policies.”
In contrast to the Nebraska
Democratic Party, which opposes
Initiative 416, Nelson said he
would vote for it
But he said the 416 campaign
should be conducted in a way that
is not divisive.
“I think homosexuality is not a
moral act,” he said. "But I think we

Both candidates also support
the death penalty. Under Nelson,
Nebraska carried out three execu
tions, its first since Charles
Starkweather in 1959. He said
allowing the executions to go for
ward was difficult, but he said he
was upholding state law.
Nelson said he opposed a pro
posed moratorium on the death
penalty. In 1999, the Legislature
passed a moratorium, but Gov.
Mike Johanns vetoed it.
He supports federal legislation
requiring DNA evidence be used
in cases when available.
Stenberg supports the death
penalty, and during his time as
attorney general has argued in
favor of shortening the appeals
process for death-row inmates.
On the issue of guns, Nelson
said he supports background
checks and a 24-hour waiting
period. Stenberg said he support
ed instant background checks but
not waiting periods.
"I oppose a waiting period,” he
said. "If a background check
shows the person is not a convict

Two other men were also

The 17-year-old was driving
his 1984 Oldsmobile north on

ran the red light at O Street.
In the intersection, the boy hit
a 2000 Ford FI50 pickup truck,
driven by a 22-year-old man.
Finnell said that impact sent the

Nebraskans, and perhaps
Midwesterners in general, have
a natural sense of inferiority. The
best way I can explain it is this:
Ask yourself where you can find
something important, and the
answer always seemed to be,
Monuments? Not here.
Beaches? Not here. Mountains?
Not here. Wall Street? Not here.

The horror! The horror!
Arnie Robinson, a senior
communications studies major,
knows the feeling. He attended
the 1987 game and remembers
"I just remember it was a
cold day, and it was terrible
because we lost, and we were No.
1,” Robinson said.
Tomorrow, Robinson will go
to Norman to see the rivalry
"I don't know if I ever
thought I'd see it again,” he said.
"But I’m excited to see it again.

“I think it deserves all the
hype it’s getting, and more.”
Even Husker fans who grew
up outside Nebraska absorbed
me rivalry s meaning.
Peter McClellan, a senior
mechanical engineering major
who grew up near Sacramento,
Calif., was and is a Husker fan.
"It’s the sort of thing you
heard about growing up, and
you saw NebrasJ^ and
Oklahoma every year on the day
after Thanksgiving, but you
never thought you’d get to expe
rience it again,” he said. o
“I hope it lives up to its hype.
I honestly can’t think of a better
college football regular-season
game. This puts Florida-Florida
State, Florida State-Miami and
Auburn-Alabama to shame.”
This week, McClellan has
. been watching his tape of the
1971 Game of the Century.
“I’m hoping Bobby’s going to
be Johnny the Jet, and it's going
to be 35-31,” he said.
Some UNL students, such as
sophomore architecture major
Wayne Mortensen, are too
young to remember the catas
trophes of the mid-80s well.
"The only thing I remember
is my grandpa hoping Barry
Switzer would drop off the face
of the earth before he steam
rolled Nebraska again,” he said.
Although he doesn’t remem
ber those games, he, too
absorbed the rivalry's signifi
"Yeah, I don’t think Nebraska
ever got away from the view that
Oklahoma is its rival,” he said.
Not too long ago, the thought
of an NU-OU renaissance
seemed impossible. Now, thanks
to Bob Stoops and Josh Heupel,
it may be here again.
Perhaps the game will live up
to its hype, and be a bam-bum
er. Perhaps the two teams are
destined for a rematch in the Big
12 championship game.
Or perhaps it won’t be close,
merely proving Marx was right
when he said history repeats
itself, the first time as tragedy,
the second time as farce.
The important thing is, in the
polls at least, the rivalry’s back.
Which is wonderful, because
life is too short to get fired up for
Colorado or Kansas State.
