Buffs Hurt By Win Boulder, Colo. (UPl) — Colorado University coach Eddie Crowder says the Buffaloes’ big win over Penn State probably was the worst thing that has happened to the team all year. The Nittany Lions were nationally ranked last month when they moved into Boulder with the longest winning streak in the nation. The Buffaloes stunned the pollsters and Penn State with a 41-13 victory. “Looking back, the worst thing that could have happened to us was that Penn Stale game,” Crowder said Monday. “We played almost a perfect igarre that day against a Penn State team that turned out to be not anywhere near as good as rje anticipated. Everybody tliou^ht our team was better ihar it is, including the team itself. “This has worked a hardship on us psychologically. We have a sound team, but only as long as it plays with consistency and without mistakes. W'e aren’t strong enough to overcome our mistakes.” Since that happy day last month, Colorado has dropped games to Kansas State, Oklahoma aiKl Missouri. Things don’t look much rosier for this Saturday as the Buffaloes prepare f o r fourth-ranked Nebraska. Crowder and his coaches, however, plan to put a few new wrinkles in their attack for the Cornhuskers. And (Yowder'.s offensive line coach, .Augie Tammariello, is among those who think the Buffaloes can pull an upset. “Our job is to rebuild their confidence and I firmly believe they will bounce back.” Tam­ mariello added, “the veterans have scored victories over all other teams in the Big Eight, but never have beaten Nebraska and this will be an extra incentive.” Since Crowder took over the helm at Colorado seven years ago the Buffs have beaten Nebraska only once. That came in 1967 in Lincoln, when Colorado edged the Buskers, 21-16, and eventually went on to the Bluebonnet Bowl. Kansas suffered a heavy blow with the announcement that defensive tackle Uuke Holden probably will be lust for the season because of torn ligaments suffered in the Iowa State game. The Jay hawks next travel to Oklahoma State. Wildcat coach Vince Gibson si ’ thankful wide receiver Sonny Yarneli looks fit after a layoff of two week.s with a back injury, but kicker-quarterback Max Arreguin is hobbled with a knee injury and defensive end Norm Dubois suffered a cracked bone in his hand in the (Iklahoma game. Trailsmoke "diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiitiiiiiiiiiiniiiHiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiM By Bob Munger Journal Outdoor Editor Tuesday, Oct. 27, 1970—P \i. Lincoln Evening Joumai & Nebraska State Jonma! 21 Anyway you slice it, the ducks just haven’t migrated into Nebraska yet! In fact, by far the greatest concentration of them hasn’t even made it into the U.S. of A. Veteran waterfowler Hart Keating oi Columbus was talking | about this “no duck” situation the other day. With the season more than two weeks along, occupants of Keating’s blind on the Loup River west of Duncan have seen precious few quackers. Normally it would have produced duck dinners for several hunters by this time of the year. But he is still optornistic. “'Phey’ll he here,” he says. “Sooner or later they will be forced out of Canada by stormy weather, and when they do we will have all the shooting we can handle.” His only fear i.s that they will migrate through in a few days, leaving the state almost as soon as they arrive. If this happens the shooting will be fantastic for a short time, then it will be all over for the year. Still 111 (ilaiFada W. G. Leitch, the chief biologist for Ducks Unlimited in Canada, notes that “most of the ducks still remain on the prairies and even a.s far north as The Pas in Manitoba. “Por the most part the ducks seem to have faith in better weather to come and remain on the prairies in excellent numbers. Fall populations have been and are at least as outstanding as last year. Mallards seem to be field feeding on the wheat stubble everywhere and a prolonged freeze, which would force them into the last of the open water, should see some spectacular concentrations. “The final exodus, if precipitated by a quick hard freeze, should be dramatic.” In the Canadian province almost due north of Nebraska, ■Vlanitoba. the provincial biologist reports huge numbers of ducks building up. 'riHMistiiids of Mallnrds Gerald Townsend says; “There are now thousands of mallards on the southern marshes, at the south end of Lakv Winnipeg and at Big Grass Marsh. Good numbers of Canada geese, gadwall, widgeon and blue bills (scaup) are also present, and there are a few scattered flocks of snow and blue geese in southern Manitoba.” With the weather worsening all over Nebraska and travelers warnings forecast for most of the state, waterfowlers arc rubbing their hands in glee. From Seattle to .Milwaukee snow and colder weather is seen. 'riiis can only help the migration of waterfowl. The traditional day for migrations to peak along the central Platte River area is Armistice Day, Nov. 11. Keating and his hunting buddies are hoping that this will hold for the 1979 duck season. They are also hoping that this will not be the ONl.Y day of migration, and while this is not probable it is certainly possible. Pray hard, fellows.
