4 E Oct. 17, 1971 Lincoln Sunday Journal and Star Jerry Tagge (14) can take his time late in the second quarter on the Kansas 37-yard line before pitching out to Johnny Rodgers (20). Rodgers gets the ball near the goal with Kansas defensive back Lee Hawkins (41) moving in fast. Hawkins latches on to Rodgers and gets a free ride over the goal line as Rodgers scores the first of his two touchdowns. Fambrough: When it Rains^ it Pours By MARK GORDON When it rains, it pours. That’s how Kansas football coach Don Fambrough described the 55-0 blasting the •Jayhawks absorbed from Nebraska Saturday at Memorial Stadium. “It’s just one of those things,” Fambrough said. “It’s terrible when you can’t run, throw, make mistakes and everything goes wrong right from the beginning.” “No matter what you do, football is still a game of blocking and tackling,” Fambrough added. “And if you don’t do those two things, you don’t deserve to win. Admitting that the inability to block indicated that KU wasn’t ready to competitively battle the Cornhuskers, Fam­ brough blamed himself for the lopsided totals. But he also countered that it would be difficult to prepare a team differently. “We weren’t ready to play today and that’s my fault — we’ve played better football this year, but I just didn’t have them ready to play today,” Fambrough said. While most mistakes against the nation’s top collegiate football squad are deadly, Fambrough said the Jayhawks made every error “in the books.” The Law’rence crew lost five fumbles and had three passes stolen by the Husker Black Shirts which prompted Fambrough to add: “We sure helped their cause.” Fambrough said the squad’s top rusher, sophomore Delvin Jeff Kinney (35) slips by Mark (leraghty (27), Lee Hawkins (41) and the rest of the Kansas line to go untouched for 66 yards and the fifth Nebraska touchdown. Williams, hurt his right ankle on the first play and added that he hadn’t planned to play center Mike McCoy, who hurt his neck in last week’s 39-13 triumph over Kansas State. Although he termed this year’s Husker team the best he’s seen, Fambrough was quick to point out that middle guard Rich Glover and slot- back Johnny Rodgers were the two Huskers that damaged the KU cause the most. “That Glover was in our backfield most of the day and Rodgers still makes the big play — you can’t cover him on passes or running plays — he's just great,” Fambrough said. “They (NU) don’t have any weaknesses and that’s why it’s almost impossible to prepare a team to face them,” Fambrough added. When KU employed a passing attack in hopes of digging into the NU margin, Fambrough said that decision could be criticized or defended. “You’re dumb to even try it (pass to try to even the score) but if you don’t they say you aren’t tr>ing,” he added. “'The best thing to do is not to get into that posiion since they’re looking right down your throats.” But KU did set a record — the Jayhawks attracted a record 68,331 to Memorial Stadium which caused Fambrough to remark “I’d rather have some other type of record.” Blackshirts Score Again INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS Nebraska Rushing No. Yds.
