4C Nov. 5. 1 fK»7 FJncnln Sunuav Journal and Sfar An All-American Strikes: Middle guard Wayne Meylan of Nebraska charges quickly, wraps up Iowa State quarterback John Warder for an eight-yard loss in the second quarte r. Daredevil Dive: Husker Ken Geddes goes heels up trying to block a punt. Stap I eton’s I ‘re-Game Fears Become Reality Photos hv 25 v SS Ito!» Gorham I Willis Van Sickle § W eh Ray I Harald Droimanis | Jim Palmer 1 John Nollendorfs | By RICK AKIN Iowa State coach Clay Stapieton’s pre-game fears became reality in Memorial Stadium Saturday. ‘*1 thought our defense could contain Nebraska,” he said in a post-rnortum to a 12-0 loss. “But I had reservations on our being able to move the ball.” It was something Stapleton, retiring trom the head coaching job to take over as full-time athletic director next sear-on, had to admit happened but you could also tell he was tired of losing in the Big Eight Conference. ‘‘The next coach is going to have it a lot better.” he said. “I’ve walked in his shoes. Iowa State has got to get better. We don’t have the depth in the quality of needed in the Big Eight. “There were years when we could have come over here (to Lincoln),” a weary Stapleton said, “and gotten beat 50-0 ” His offense was beaten that badly but he praised the defense of both sides. “Nebraska broke our offense down,” he said. “They’d line up those live (on the front line» and come at us and we couldn’t do anything about it.” Feeling the rush of t h e front line more than anyone was quarterback John Warder, spilled for 51 yards in losses while attempting to pass. “They (NU) really put on a rush,” he said. “1 got trounced on a little b i t. (Husker middle guard Wayne) Meylan was in there before I knew it.” Les Webster, a halfback from Omaha, said: “They were going through our line like w'atcr.” All complimented Nebraska. Said Stapleton: —“T h e y are stronger physically and have more skill I might add. —“I knew Nebraska was a little bit out of our class. They have outstanding hacks and their defense is strong. They’re No. 1 in the country, aren’t they.” Said Webster when asked who looked impressive to him: “Everybody. That (6-7 quarterback (Frank) Patrick can lean for five yards.” Cyclone defenders took pride in the accomplishment of making a game of it. “We were ready to play today,” middle guard Willie Muldrcw said. “We just wanted to win and then it seems we play a 1 i tt 1 e harder. But we have trouble moving the ball. Sixty per cent of the time the offense stops themselves.” S o p h o m ore linebacker Lon Snook said: “We held ’em pretty good. My defensive tackle helped me the most. That’s Roger Ashton. He kept (Nebraska’s) tackle off me and that allowed me to till to the outside.” Stapleton, too, was proud. “In 10 years at Iowa State,” he said. "I never had kids who gave a better account of themselves than these kids in the last three games. It’s a little bit unfortunate a team can play that well and not win.” Smallest Frtss dorps IVrsrnl The press corps covering Saturday’s 12-0 Nebraska win over Iowa State was the smallest of the year to cover the Buskers.
