Next question 49-7 Man No What did that French philosopher say? "The more things change the more they stay the same” Something like that (Maybe it was Madonna) KU football has changed no doubt about it The problem is Nebraska football hasn’t The result Saturday night was Just one more Nebraska rout of the Jayhawks FRED MANN KU coach Glen Mason was asked after the game if this Nebraska team was the best he’s seen “They all look the same to me" he said Me too 49-7 Funny but less than 24 hours ago things were looking so good for Kansas It was 7-1 overall undefeated In Big Eight Conference play had a No 12 ranking had bowl scouts drooling had a big mean defense that everybody feared had a diversified offense had stories written about it In national magazines That's the sort of team they brought into Memorial Stadium this time — a good team disciplined and talented No more of those doggy teams And excitement was high for this game This was the night KU thought It had a chance to come up here and finally part the Big Red Sea But that sucker closed over them fest It engulfed them In a wave of Derek Browns and Calvin Joneses and Tommie Fraziers and Ed Stewarts and Trev Alberts and heaven only knows who else One half That's all It took One half and the Hawks were history Moses himself couldn't have parted this Red Sea 49-7 And I thought I was through writing about these football routs ESPN could have scrapped Its live broadcast of this game and rerun the tape of any previous Nebras- See MANN Page 7G KU’s dream of Orange Bowl squeezed dry By Crag Condi The Wichita Eagle LINCOLN Neb -
