I^SS—E»ywlng ^rhmokii jttwt» Iwwrtiiit 1 May Be Wron^ By Dick Bicker Jtariil SpOTls Eilttr How far is it from the sidelines to the middle of a football field? 80 feet? 17 steps? Bill Glassford knows. It’s a long, long way when you have just lost a football game and must go out and shake hands with the winning coach. The Biffer has made the trip a lot lately. Down at Norman, Okla., last fall. After the Orange Bowl game and now after the "warmup” with Hawaii. WTiy these trips? What brings about this disintegration of the Husker football machine? At Oklahoma it was a complete blowup folloming a missed fair catch. Rocky, Archie Worrying—About lone By M1;RRAY rose Now they had nothing to do but* . While training drills seldom are his regular fights. The only dif-llng,” said Archie, “I know what ái Glassford At Miami it .seemed to be complete in d i f f e r- ence to the task at hand by some of the players. Ha« a i i? Never have .•tuch overwhelm i n g favor i t e s seemed so shaky and uncertain as did the Cornhuskcrs. Far from being in the position to regulate the game, Nebraska had to play Hawaii's game all afternoon. Simply stated, the young Huskers seemed to lack confidence. They w’ere jittery. There was no leadership. They were, if it is possible at the same time, o\ erconfident. This ambiguous statement needs some clarification. The Huskers were extremely confident going into the game but the minute they got into trouble they were found lacking. They seemed to have no plan. They wouldn’t try a running game. They didn’t react as if they felt they could move the ball, even against this player- shy squad from the Islands. Nor was the confidence sent to them from the bench. Those who sat dejectedly in the stands were quick to spot the anger, the frantic actions of the coaches, includuig Glassford, Di!4org;anizefl Far from using an organized plan which it seems could easily have worn down the 28-man Hawaii squad, Nebraska used a varied attack which was so easy on the Rainbows that three of them were able to play the full 60 minutes in the 93-degree heat. Were there no weaknesses in this Hawaii eleven which now goes Into a schedule small colleges and service teams? Couldn’t those on the bench nr up In the press box on the phones find someplace to strike where there was a chance fw reward? Apparently not. Was there no one to take command of this sinking ship? These are our kids. Whether they were from Nebraska or some outside state, they were Comhuskers on that field. They may has'e been the first Nebraska team In history to hear a partisan home crowd cheer when the foe punched over the winning touchdown, Rcrriiitin^ If these kids can’t do it, then our system of recruiting is bad. A good nucleus of the varsity is hand picked. They are the kid.s Glassford and his staff picked. There has been no handcuffing of the Hu.sker recruiters. They have been given free reign within the regulations of the Big Seven and the NCAA. But we still find ourselves disorganized, losing games which certainly must go down as easy season openers. We can’t continue to stumble. The figures do ncg indicate that things are going to get any better. Last year’s hand - picked freshman .squad of 62 shows just 21 still on the varsity squad after just one year. \^y this waste of manpower and money? If this expensive program can’t return any dividends, then it should be changed. There are no demands for national championships or for a Big Seven crown this year, but losing to Hawaii —that’s too much! Revenge ? This week Nebraska plays Ohio State at Columbus. Outside of Oklahoma, this figures to be the toughest game on the 1955 schedule. If the Huskers think that being named a prohibitive underdog was what put Hawaii over the top, then they will have a perfect chance this week themselves. There most likely won’t be any points given on the game. The odds-makers usually stop at 40 and that won’t be enough for anyone to choose Nebraska. If spirit and desire to win beat Nebraska, then let’s see a little spirit on our side this week. A win over Ohio State, while almost past the wishful thinking stage, would certainly salve a lot of the hurt of the inglorious beginning of the 1955 season.
