Extra Point Club Sessions Resume The first weekly Extra Point Club football luncheon is scheduled for noon Monday at the Lincoln Hotel. Feature of the first session will be color film of the Cornhusker opener against Wake Forest and comments on the game by coach Ecb Devaney. Also scheduled will be a scouting report on Southern California by Jim Ross. StoD Likes Quality, Depth Husker Backs Draw Praise By VIRGIL PARKER "I was an assistant coach at Michigan State for ten years," Wake Forest head man Cal Stoll said after the Nebraska clash Saturday afternoon, "and during that time we were national champions twice. But we never had as many good backs on one team as Nebraska showed out there today." The Deacons came away on the short end of a 36-12 score, but Stoll added that "I certainly wasn't ashamed of our club. They grew up a lot playing a team of Nebraska's caliber. We brought 25 kids who had never been on a varsity trip before. Yet they hung in there pretty good." Stoll insisted that "Nebraska just has too many offensive weapons to stop." He called Big Red sophomore Johnny Rodgers "everything everyone expected him to be" and added that "I think (Jerry) Tagge is tremendous, but then everyone already knew that." Stoll, in his second year at Wake Forest, said that Nebraska's defense was a question mark. "We thought we could move the ball on them and did at the outset of the game, getting on the scoreboard first. But it takes more experience than we have to play catchup football." The Deacons' grid boss said that he was especially pleased with the running of Larry Hopkins "who was playing his first varsity game. We would have liked to run him more, but had to start passing when we fell behind." Wake Forest, which' also has such intersectional powers as Tennessee, Houston and Florida State on its schedule this fall despite an enrollment of only 3,210, did some things that pleased Stoll. ' "I thought our kicking game was super," he said, "particularly the punts against the wind. When you count in the 72-yard quick kick, we come out with a pretty fair average." Stoll felt the Deacons did some other things well. "We blocked a punt and an extra point. In fact," he added, "we blocked the punt too well. If we THE-LINEVPS.

Instead the ball sailed back, striking the goal post upright which is out of bounds, thus immediately becoming a dead ball and giving Wake Forest just two points on a safety. "If we get the touchdown instead of the safety it becomes 14-10 instead of 14-5," Stoll observed. "That changes things a little." Stoll called the chance for his players to tangle .with Nebraska "a great experience" and said they all thought the AstroTurf was "a terrific surface on which to play." But Stoll kept commenting on the Huskers big stable of backs. "Nebraska's in a tough conference. The Big Eight is one of the best. But they're well coached and have a lot of muscle and speed. Anybody who takes them on had better come ready to play." lllll!lllllllllllllllllllllllllil!lllllllllllllllllllllllllll I Photos by I Bob Go r ham 1 .
