4 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 it Pours By MARK GORDON When it rains, it pours.

how Kansas football coach Don Fambrough described the 55-0 blasting the absorbed from Nebraska Saturday at Memorial Stadium. just one of those Fambrough said. terrible when you run, throw, make mistakes and everything goes wrong right from the matter what you do, football is still a game of blocking and Fambrough added. if you do those two things, you deserve to win. Admitting that the inability to block indicated that KU ready to competitively battle the Cornhuskers, brough blamed himself for the lopsided totals.

Although he termed this Husker team the best 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.

Glover was in our backfield most of the day and Rodgers still makes the big play you cover him on passes or running plays he's just Fambrough said. (NU) have any weaknesses and why almost impossible to prepare a team to face 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. dumb to even try it (pass to try to even the score) but if you they say you he added. best thing to do is not to get into that posiion since looking right down your But KU did set a record the Jayhawks attracted a record 68,331 to Memorial Stadium which caused Fambrough to remark rather have some other type of Blackshirts Score Again INDIVIDUAL STATISTICS Nebraska Rushing No.
