October 8. 1961 LINCOLN SUNDAY JOURNAL AND STAB SD How Nebraska Gave Wildcats The ‘Willies’ This is the lir»t of 3 touefidowns by Husker sophomore Willie Ross: a wide end sweep for one yard and 6 points. Jennings’ Thoughts Switch To Future By Dick Becker Manhattan, Kan. -- There wasn’t much time for Bill Jennings to savour Nebraska’s 24-0 win over Kansas State Saturday. The Husker head coach, Just after lighting up his regular post-game smoke, was immediately reminded ci next week’s assignment against powerful Syracuse. “Oooh, boy” was Jennings’ only comment. It was self explanatory. As he unwound a bit, Jenings indicated that he was satisfied with Nebraska's effort against the Wildcats but not particularly with the over-all play. “We really went after them out there today,” Jennings declared, “Our squad played 110 percent. “It was a conference game and we like to play conference games. We just went out and played hard. “But our offense is still sputtering. We have to move better ... we need consistency. “I just don’t know what is wrong with our passing .. . but we’ve got to be able to put everything together.” Just then Dennis Glar- idge’s dad walked by. “I think Denny’s still griping the ball too hard,” Bill said to him. Turning back to his questioners, Jennings continued; “I felt Willie Ross played very well — defensively as well as offensively. “Bill Thornton showed he is ready to go, too . . . “1 thought both of our lilies played well, I couldn’t tell much difference between them. W’e didn’t use Dennis Stuewe because of his ankle and Dwain Carlson got in just once by accident. “We knew the wind was bound to be a factor and we were glAd to get it at N-ilallahan - '-■"'VT'S the start ... it really made a difference. “They did about what we expected. They played hard. They're a real aggressive ball club.” With that the Husker coach went over to receive congratulations from his wife Mary and prepare for a pleasant ride home. All But Steuwp Got iuto Game Nebraska used 35 of 36 players who made the inp. Only halfback DL'nms Stuewe was held out of action with a sprained ankle. Gene Young, sophomore fullback, was a late entry when Gene Ward couldn’t play because of injuries. 60 Bauds Perform It was Band Day at Manhattan with over 60 bands participating in a morning parade and at halftime. The bands formed 1961— which is okay from either side of the field, a feat that won’t happen again — according to Kansas Stale mathematicians—until 6009. 3rd Win of Toss Nebraska won the toss at the start of the game for the 3rd straight week.
