By Randy Eickhoff Star Sporti Writer Miserable Is Right There's an old saying that you end up being miserable f you re a successful duck hunter, but the sad thing about it is you don't necessarily have to be successful in order to be miserable. Can yon Imagine crawling 400 yards through thick weeds trying to sneak up on some ducks only to have them fly off short moments before you're ready to shoot? Or how about donning your waders to walk two miles to cross a branch of a lake and find out your waders have sprung a leak in the meantime and water gushes in to fill each leg? It's a two mile walk back to the car in soaking wet clothes with, of course, the wet interior of the waders rubbing you raw each step. You most certainly weren't successful and you certainly were miserable so maybe that statement should be rewritten for the unsuccessful hunter rather than the other who has something to show for his efforts. In fact, the unsuccessful hunters far outnumber the sue-NH ed get imubmik.- - But the mark of the dedicated gunner is the one who keeps coming back for more despite his lack of luck. Others simply fold after coming home birdless and refuse to go out again the rest of the year. But come next year, they'll be in the front ranks looking for someone to hunt with. firing On The Rain Every hunter will probably take advantage of the first rainy day that comes along for that will limit the flying of the ducks. Thursday, October 22, 1970 The Lincoln Star 27 WU, OU .Sophomores Living Up To Expectations . . . SHOWINGS MADE BY RODGERS, WYLIE COMING AS NO SURPRISE IN BIG EIGHT Kansas City, Mo. A pair of mighty quick hitters have been quick hits as super sophomore sensations in the Big Eight Conference this fall. The actions, however, of Nebraska's Johnny Rodgers and Oklahoma's Joe Wylie have not been unexpected. Plainly and simply, coaches of both thought they just had to get the ball to both. To see either isolated in a one-on-one situation, it was predicted, would be Instant showtime. It has been. Rodgers, with the quick feet, great football speed, and exceptional balance, leads the Big Eight in all-purpose' yardage, holding 843 lengths. He's had his hands on the ball 60 times, a rather impressive 14.1 per-play average. Broken down, he had caught 18 passes' for 327 yards, rushed 20 times for 158, returned 13 punts for 191, and carried back 10 kickoffs for 187 more. What's more, Rodgers has scored at least once in every game and ranks second in league point-production with 42. He has broken one punt all the way and scored five on passes. Wylie, who has gained a starting spot as a running back in the Sooners' new Wishbone offense, has a tremendously peculiar style of running. One describes him, for those inside the generation gap, "Joe looks like Jerry Lewis when he runs his legs fly in all different directions." Another, for contemporaries, says Wylie looks like a girl trying to run in a tight skirt. So do his yards. He's gained 411 length in 53 tries he's played one less game than Rodgers - a 7.8 per-try mark. Wylie has carried 49 times for 351 yards (fifth in Big Eight), caught one pass for 38 yards, and returned three kickoffs for 22 yards. Three times he has scored. As added duty, he's also taken on the punting chores, averaging 39.5. Taking advantage of an off week for Oklahoma State Mike Montgomery, the fullback at Kansas State, took over the pass receiving lead from the Cowboys' Hermann E b e n . Montgomery got another 10 against Iowa State Putting his seasonal output at 29. Eben, in one less game, has 27, good for 482 yards, compared with 176 for Montgomery. Able to hold off Rodgers in the scoring race for another week was Kansas' John Riggins, who matched touchdowns with the P . And those that do fly for another to put down on. from one lake will be searching This is when the hunting is really great. But too much of a thing isn't good either. The weather may be too miserable to identify the targets. The thing to do is to make use of the days we have now rather than sit around and wait for the perfect day that may never come. Traploads Work Fine Repeatedly, this writer has plugged the use of using traploads while hunting pheasant and quail as the best all around shot, but who would have thought about using them for ducks? Yet I have seen ducks dropped with traploads after No. I mags left them wheeling away. And twice this season, I have dropped two with one shot a feat I've never performed before. Looks like the only thing they're not good for is geese that takes a pretty hefty load. There is a perfectly logical reason for making the switch from the standard larger loads. The shooter gets a larger pattern with the smaller shot. And that means fewer misses and more birds. Deer Season Close According to recent reports from the game commission, this year's deer harvest may be one of the best yet. In the Winchester Hunting Report, the game commission has rated Nebraska hunting probabilities excellent with a better than even chance for the hunter filling his license. Several units are still open with Pine Ridge topping the list for available permits. . .

Manager REDS ANDERSON FINISHES SECOND Pittsburgh UP) Danny Murtaugh, named Wednesday as The Associated Press National League Manager of 1970, might have been a dry cleaner in Chester, Pa., if the breaks had gone differently. Instead he s been recognized by sports writers and broad casters throughout the country for his managerial work with the NL East champion Pittsburgh Pirates. He received 14S votes to 131 for runner-up Lincoln Gals Lead Doubles At Columbus Columbus Two Lincoln gals lead the doubles event after the second week of the Ladies Columbowl Tournament here. Marge Bartzatt and Faye Martin have combined for a total pinfall of 1,265. Ednda Gates and Stella Kaufman, another Lincoln combination, is third in the doubles competition with 1,221 pins. Lincoln's Marge Felton ranks second in the singles competi tion with 642 pins, and Commonwealth Electric of Lincoln ranks third in the team race with 2,878 pins. Doris Krecek of Omaha is the "aff eveiitaaer with Xm pins. The tournament runs three more weekends. Entry deadline is Nov. 1. Selecting Winner Between Losina Teams A Problem By VIRGIL PARKER Prep Sports Writer Most people automatically assume that if they were to start picking the winners of all the high school games to be played across the state, .it would be those crucial games between the topflight teams that would give them the most trouble. It's not those contests that ruin a forecaster's percentage, but rather the games to be played between clubs that have managed Just one or two wins in their six games so far. In all likelihood, two such teams have managed to squeeze out a victory over the same hapless foe and have been clob bered by another common op ponent. Take this weekend's game between Southeast Consolidated and Nehawka. Southeast has lost six straight. Three times they were shut out. They have scored just 21 points to their opponents 158. No way they can win, you sav? Nehawka has also lost all six of its games. The Indians have been shut out four times. They have scored iust 22 points to 232. . Two eight-man games, Arthur versus Lewellen and Dawson Verdon at Filley, Involves four teams with a combined record of 0-20. They have each lost five in a row. But the weekend is loaded with toDflight games. Fremonl Bergan, No. 3 in Class C, hosts Class B's No. 3 rated team Omaha Cathedral.

Early in the Iowa State game, Riggins will move into the top 10 of all-time Bfg Eight career rushers. He has now accounted for 2,147, one more yard than the previous 11th ranked runner, Oklahoma's George Thomas. Seven more lengths will put Riggins by the Sooners' Billy Vessels. Though he didn't take over the league's passing lead, Kansas State's Lynn Dickey, making quite a comeback after an early injury, has not passed for 876 yards. In the all-time yardage standings, he now has a career passing accumulation of 4,921, a record he breaks wfth every completion, and a total-offense figure of 4,558, third on the all-time Big Eight list, ranking mack and Colorado's Bob Ander son. Sparky Anderson who led Cin cinnati to the World Series in his first year as a big league manager. In 1955 Murtaugh was manag ing Charleston, W. Va., a finan cially troubled farm club of the Detroit Tigers and was released at midseason. "I was out of a job and it looked like there were no op portunities for me in baseball," said the 53-year-old Irishman in a telephone interview from his home in Woodlyn, Pa., a Philadelphia suburb. I was thinking about going into the clothing store business in my hometown Chester and I also had an offer to open a dry cleaning operation." Then Joe L. Brown, who'd just succeeded Branch Rickey as Pirate general manager, offered Murtaugh a ; i with the club's Williamsport, Pa., farm team. Before the season even began Murtaugh had been transferred to the parent club as a coacb under Bobby Bragan. When Bragan was fired in August 1957 Murtaugh was elevated to manager. The Pirates finished seventh place that year. They climbed to second in 1958 and Murtaugh was named Manager of the Year. He received the honor again in 1960 when he led Pittsburgh to He retired as Pirate manager at the end of the 1964 season because of ill health, but remained with the club as a scout. After Larry Shepard's dismissal as Pirate manager at the end of the 1969 season there was widespread speculation as to who would succeed him. Brown's chose Murtaugh who had been given a clean bill of health by his doctor. Although he took over a club considered to have pitching problems before the season and plagued with injuries during it, Murtaugh's team finished five games ahead of second-place Chicago. What was his biggest challenge? "I believe it was trying to regroup after all of the injuries we had," he said. "I had to use all of our reserves and they performed quite well. All deserve a share of the credit." Murtaugh doesn't believe that being Manager of the Year gives skill. "The way our division was any one of the managers could have received the hoonor. In my estimation all of them did a good job," he said. As a player Murtaugh spent time with the Philadelphia Phillies, the Boston Braves and a couple of minor league teams before coming to Pittsburgh, where he had his best season in 1948, batting .290 with 71 RBI's. He also led National League se cond basemen in putouts, assists and double plays. His last year as a player was 1951. He then managed at New Orleans, Chariestown and Williamsport before joining the parent club. There is still a question as to whether he'll manage Pittsburgh next season. "I'll meet with Joe Brown next month and we'll decide then," he said. Murtaugh just completed a one-year contract. The balloting for Manager of 1970 was held prior to the divisional playoffs. uthers receiving votes were Frank Lucchesi of Philadelphia 11, Gene Mauch of Montreal 4, Walter Alston of Los Angeles 3, Leo Durocher of Chicago 2 and Charley Fox of San Francisco and Harry Walker of Houston with one each.

And Nebraska head coach Bob Devaney warns that one of Eben's greatest attributes is his tenaciousness at going after the football. "Eben and Dick Graham will - . r ) nh I L I C i """ DETERMINED FOR COMEBACK Former World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali, also known as Cassius Gay, looks determined to start to regain his title against Jerry Quarry in a nontitle bout Oct. 26 in Atlanta. p both out-wrestle you for the football," he points out. "Just when you think you've got them covered or you think you ve broken up the pass, they'll come down with the ball." Eben has caught 27 passes this season for 482 yaras, Doosting his career totals at oou to vi receptions for 1,518 yards. Going into this campaign be held the Oklahoma State pass receiving records for most yards from passes caught for one game with 181 against Oklahoma last year, most yards from passes caught in one season with 733 in 1969, most touchdown passes caught in one game with three against Kansas State last year and most touchdown passes caught in one season with seven last year. Since the start of the current i i j i season, ne nas aauea tne records for most yards from passes caught for a career with his 1,518 yards and most career touchdown passes caught with 12. "He has caught most of his passes on out patterns and crossing patterns," Devaney notes, "But he will go deep on you, too." Graham has caught 17 passes for 236 yards. In trying to stop Eben and Graham, Devaney says the Huskers, who prefer to play a zone type pass defense in the secondary, will be forced into some man-to-man coverage. "When they split both Graham and Eben, you're forced to cover them man-to-man," he points out. "You might get some help on covering them on short pat terns, but when they go deep, it's going to be primarily one-on- one coverage." Doing the man-to-man coverage on Eben and Graham will be Jim Anderson and Joe Blahak. Huskers Called Sound , Oklahoma State assistant football coach Fred Hightower, who scouted Nebraska for the Cowboys called the Huskers a "sound and solid" football team. "Nebraska's not that hard of a team to prepare for," he says, "They don't change their formations or defense much. But they are so sound and solid and do the job so well that they don't have to. They always seem to come up with the big play." Huskers The Choke Both Herschell Nissenson and Will Grimsley, who do the college football forecasting for The Associated Press, are picking Nebraska to win over Oklahoma State. Calling it 25-10 for Nebraska, Grimsley comments, "Cornhuskers' Paul Rogers, who has kicked 24 of 24 extra point attempts, gets a few more chances." NU Reported Top Pick For Coffon Bow Dallas (UPI) - A Dallas sports columnist said Wednesday Nebraska is the top choice to play the winner of the Southwest Conference Jan. 1, in the Cotton Bowl Classic. Sam Blair, writing in the Dallas Morning News, said Notre Dame, Air Force and Auburn all undefeated are still in contention. Nebraska's record is marred only by a tie against Southern California. Notre Dame, Nebraska Auburn and Air Force are cur rently ranked third through sixth in the nation, respectively, They would, if picked, play either second-ranked and undefeated Texas or ninth- ranked Arkansas, which has a loss against Stanford to go with four victories. "Nebraska currently is the most logical favorite to win the guest-team invitation, to the Cotton Bowl classic and the Cornhuskers will be visited by (Cotton Bowl) delegation this weekend," Blair said.
