Sflturdoy, Sept. 17, 1966 The Lineoln Star 11 TCU Loaded With Veterans. Only Two Sophs Start HARRY WILSON . . . Husker Runner. By HAL BROWN Star Sports Editor Texas Christian returns starters at three backfield positions from a year ago, but the 62,644 fans who are expected to jam Memorial Stadium for this afternoon’s opener between the Horned Frogs and Nebraska are likely to see plenty of three youngsters in t h e opposing backfield. Fullback Kenny Post, halfback Steve Landon and w i n g b a c k David Smith have been able to hang onto their starting assignments for the Horned Frogs, but TCU backers feel they have solid backup men in sophomores Norman Bulaich at halfback, Leslie Brown at wingback and Ross Montgomery at fullback. “They’ll see a lot of action in the game,” TCU coach Abe Martin nointed c t Friday in di »cussing his talented sophomores. “I’ve got to give them some game experien-^e. “But when I put them in there, I don’t feel I’m giving up anything. They are good football players and I’m not afraid of the m hurting us.” The main reason a cou­ ple of the sophomores aren’t starting is that they must back the Southwest Conference Sophomore Back of The Year (Landon) and the runner-up »or that honor (Post) for starting assignments. Only two sophomores off last year’s unbeaten frosh squad have managed to bag starting spots, evidence of the strength of returnees. Left guard Rick Sheddy and center Fred Wright will be playing side-by-side on the offensive unit as the only sophomores. The only Texas Christian player missing who figured in the Horned Frogs scoring last year against Nebraska is quarterback Kent Nix. Nix tossed a 10-yard touchdown pass to S o n n y Campbell to pull the visitors within 14-7 after the Huskers had taken a quick 14-0 lead on two passes from quarterback Bob Churchich to Freeman White. .\ix has been replaced by P. D. Shabay, a junior who had injury problems when TCU visited in Lincoln last September. TCU’s other touchdown a year ago was scored by Landon on a three-y a r d run. But the picture on the Nebraska side is not as bright with White gone and whth the player who came up with the key play in the contest also missing. Bill Johnson, a defensive halfback from Stanton, came up with what proved to be the turning point in the game a year ago when he intercepted a pass just before the half time intermission and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown. The interception came after TCU had battled back to a 14-7 score and with the Horned Frogs threatening to tie it up. But instead, they went to the dressing room trailing 21-7, and never recovered. The Huskers’ other two touchdowns a year ago were scored by Ron Kirkland on an 11-yard run and by Ken Brunk on a one- yard dive. Both Kirkland and Brunk are back this season. « « « Tickets Available Nebraska ticket manager Jim Pittenger said Friday afternoon that a limited supply of t i c k e t s returned by Texas Christian would be put on sale at 10 a.m. this morning at the Coliseum ticket Office. ♦ * * Rubber Game Today’s contest will be the rubber game in the NU-TCU series. Texas Christian won the first one, 28-7, in 1951 and Nebraska won a year ago, 34-14. The two teams will meet next year at Fort Worth Oct. 28. Both the ’51 Horned B'rogs and ’65 Huskers were conference championship teams. • » ♦ Jaycees Sell Banners The Lincoln Jaycees are selling weatheiproof banners of heavy plastic bearing the words. “Go Big Red” in white lettering on a red background. The banners are 36 by 58 inches. * * ♦ Halftime Program The Nebraska Marching Band will present a salute, tracing the history of music reproduction as its halftime show today.

The Lineups KNIGHTS SMALLER VALIANT hut he doesn’t TRY STAFF PHOTO BY JOIfN* NOLLE.VDORFS Southeast's Bill I^inbt*rger spurts through a brief opening in the .Northeast line, left, get far before the Rockets chise in. The Northeast Rockets put the emphasis on the “rock” in grinding out a 14-6 victory over gritty, smaller Southeast B' r i d a y night at Seacrest Field. It was the Knights’ sixth straight loss to the perennial juggernaut from the Northeast side, but it was a far cry from the 20-0 pounding thrashing last year. Southeast ooach Bill Stephenson’s junior - studded line just couldn’t match the size and experience of t h e Rocket front. The game was just over six minutes old when Rocket fullback Dave Mann stormed through the line on a cross­ buck and scampered down the right sideline 42 yards to the game’s first score. Wally Winter’s kick made it 7-0. The score stood until halftime. Winter, a 225-poimd tackle, tried a 20-yard field goal early in the second quarter, but it was blocked.

The meeting of tw unbeaten Eastern Division powers, Houston, 2-0, and New York, 1-0, at Shea Stadium and the opening of the new Oakland-Alameda County Stadium with Kansas City, 1-0, at Oakland, 1-1, are the big events on Sunday’s four-game American Football League Coach Hay Westover says t than the snow-covered Green! chart.

Both have been alternating )this week with the first unit {offensive backfield of Bill 'Rohrig and Gary .Muehlhaus- 'en, halfbacks, and Jack Handa, fullback. Midland’s Max Kitzelman will promote last year’s reserve quarterback, BM Celt- jen, into the No. 1 |)osition. Lack of a throwing quarterback is considered one of the few weaknesses on a veteran Warrior outfit by the Plainsmen coaches. Biggest menace is fullback Bruce Green who weighs in this fall at 240 pounds. The three-year veteran personally accounted for 102 yards in 24 carries last year against the Plainsmen. Midland boasts a heavier squad all-around. The Warrior backfield outweighs the Plainsmen 198-178 and the line has a 211-208 advantage. Westover has put the Plainsmen offensive unit through stiff drills all week in preparation for the encounter.

Ernie (^reen and Leroy Kelly were hot on the ground and Frank Ryaii was hitting his targets. H 0 w’ e V e r, the Packers thumped the Baltimore Colts 24-3 and looked like world beaters with an alert defense, fine passing by Bart Starr and strong running by Jim Taylor.

Southeast was mired in its own territory the entire first half, managing only 32 yards on the ground and none through the air. It didn’t look too promising for the Knights who had managed to score in only one game against the Rockets in the last five years. But after Menn fumbled early in the second half on the Rocket 42 and end Dick Hergenrader recovered, the Southeast crew began its only touchdown drive of the night. Ten plays and some anxious moments later the Knights had moved the ball only ten yards and were faced with a fourth and 18 situation. Quarterback Craig Lutz handed to halfback Jon Roberts who rolled to t h e right and tossed the ball high in the air just before being smothered by the Rocket line. Halbaek Bill Leinberger broke free and camped under the bail in the end zone oil the 32-yard TI) play. Bill (iiiilford’s kick failed, but the Knights were down only one. The Rockets must have been charged by the scare because they took the Knight kickoff and promptly marched 64 yards in six plays for the final scoring play of the night. Senior back Rich Olson struck paydirt on a 28-yard gallop with only 34 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Winter converted again. A Knight drive stalled on the 24 early in the four th quarter.
