Scouting Report: Nebraska Solid Team

By JIM BERGER

C->

How good is Nebraska?
The Cornhuskers will march in-
to Michigan Stadium tomorrow
with an impressive 53-0 opening
victory over South Dakota. Ac-
cording to Don Dufek, Michigan
freshman football coach who
scouted Nebraska at last week's
massacre, the Cornhuskers have
a solid -backfield, a solid line, a
good defense, and a capable quwr-
terback.
Bit of Both
Was Nebraska that good or was
South Dakota that bad? "I'd say
it was a little bit of both," said
Dufek. "South Dakota wasn't a
good team by any stretch of the
imagination; they didn't even
come close.
"But Nebraska looked like a
good football team last Saturday,"
continued the Wolverine scout,
"they displayed both a good of-
fense and a~ good defense."
The big man.in the Cornhusker
offense is senior fullback Dick
'Thunder' Thornton. Thornton
didn't see any action last week due
to a shoulder injury. According

to latest reports, Thornton will
dress for tomorrow's game but it
is doubtful that he will play.

According to Dufek, the Corn-
huskers will use a multiple-T of-
fense with an unbalanced line.
"They haven't got one set offense
as such," said Dufek. "Very re-
cently they even ran some plays
out of a single-wing, but they
didn't use it last week."
Dufek had much praise for Ne-
braska's signalcaller, Dennis Cla-
ridge, a 6'3" 210-pounder. "He's
a good quarterback," said Dufek,
"he can both run and pass well.
"They've got some good fast
backs, too," said Dufek, "and they
can pass as well as run." Halfback
Dennis Theisen completed a pass
for 14 yds. last Saturday and an-
other halfback, Kent McCloughan,
attempted a pass, but it was in-
complete.

"Of course South Dakota wasn't
a real test, but Nebraska showed
a good defense," said Defek.
"South Dakota completed some-
thing like one pass for a minus
three yds.," he said commenting
on the defensive secondary.
According to Dufek
According to Dufek, the Corn-
huskers have a two-unit team. Un-
like Michigan's three-platoon set-
up which will have specialization,
the Cornhuskers have two separate
teams.
"I think they will have an ad-
vantage having played a game al-
ready," said Dufek. "Last week
they used 49 players against South
Dakota. They used guys that
weren't even on the roster."
The Cornhuskers have a new

coach and staff this season. Rob-
ert S. Davaney, a native of Sag-
inaw who assisted both Biggie
Munn and Duffy Daugherty at
Michigan State, is the new Ne-
braska mentor. For the last five
years he coached Wyoming -to
four Skyline Conference cham-
pionships.
Last season Nebraska had a 3-
6-1 record but only in two games
were they outclassed. Both Syra-
cuse and Kansas defeated the
Cornhuskers by identical 28-6
scores. They lost to Oklahoma
State, 14-6, to Missouri, 10-0, to
Colorado, 7-0 and Oklahoma,
21-14.
Nebraska defeated North Da-
kota, Kansas State and Iowa State
and tied Arizona last season.

CHICAGO (P) - Avery Brui-
dage,'a life-long crusader for ama-
teurism in sports, is 75 years old
today and embarked on a new
battle to keep the Olympic Games
pure.
The big,broad-shouldered inter-
national Olympic committee pres-
ident could pass for a man 15 or
20 years younger. He will need all
his strength to enforce the new
Olympic rule which bans athletes
who receive college scholarships
as well as those supported by gov-
ernments as has been charged
against Soviet Russia.
Brundage has never been one
to turn away from battle. Over
the years he has been the target
for virulent criticism as he ranged
over both the American and in-
ternational sports scenes cracking
down on every deviation from the
amateur code of conduct.
He feels as strongly as ever that
an amateur must be uncontamin-
ated.
"The commercialization of col-
lege sports is a national disgrace,"
he says. "The vast percentage of
college educators are dead against
hiring college athletes.
Brundage's new fight for ama-
teurism stems from a spelling out
by the I.O.C. of rules that will ap-
ply in all future games.
Among the new definitions of a
professional promulgated by Brun-
dage are "anyone awarded a schol-
arship mainly for his athletic abil-
(studies or employment) has been
ity' 'and "those whose occupation
interrupted for special training in
a camp for over three weeks."
Rigid application of the new
rules could hit both the American
and Russian olympicteams. En-
forcement in both cases will be.

up to the national Olympic com-
mittees and the amateur govern-
ing bodies, which in the case of
the United States is the Amateur
Athletic Union.
Brundage a 75 faces probably
the toughest fight of his lifeĀ° to
make the new rules stick. He's
not afraid, however. A , wealthy
man, the Olympic games are his
way of life. He draws- no salary
and even pays his own expenses
to and from international meet-
ings.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

By JOHN SCOCHIN
Eleven, 22, 33 Michigan foot-
ball players, in three platoons
marching on and off the football
field throughout a crisp Satur-
day afternoon. That's the new look
in Michigan grid circles this fall.
Coach Bump Elliott and his
crew will use his first 11 men on
both offense and defense. The
second platoon is made up of de-
fensive specialists while the third
platoon will see duty only on of-
fense.
The starting squad will have
captain Bob Brown and Jim Ward
at the ends, John Houtman and
Joe O'Donnell at the tackles and
John Minko and John Marcum
playing guard with Bill Muir at
center to form the Wolverine for-
ward wall.
Proven Veteran
Brown is a big 6'4" 226-pounder
from Kalamazoo. A rugged defen-
sive blocker and strong rusher the
'M' captain was also a standout
pass catcher last season with espe-
cially fast moves in getting free
as a receiver.
Starting at another position this
year, Ward spent time as a half-
back and a fullback before a knee
injury sidelined him last fall. As-
sistant Coach Jack Fouts said
"Ward has good speed. If he gets
a pass he'll have a good chance
to break through for the long gain.
As a defensive end he's smaller
(at 201 lbs.) than some of the men
we've had in the past, but he blocks
well and hits hard."
Houtman at 229 lbs. and the 219-
lb. O'Donnell are lettermen at
tackle. Houtman is primarily an
offensive standout while O'Don-
nell, recovered from last year's
broken arm, is a rough-and-tum-
ble line leader, who plays well both
ways.
Most Improved
Guard Minko, at 226 lbs., ac-
counted for numerous tackles in
last year's games and was rated
the most improved Michigan play-
er at the end of spring practice.
Marcum, a junior in class but a
sophomore in eligibility, who injur-
ed his knee in a scrimmage last
fall and sat out the season, is a
stocky 205-pounder with quick
moves and a rugged manner.
Junior Bill Muir is a newcomer
at center. "Muir is a fine rusher.
He blocks well and tackles hard.
Although he is comparatively small
at 200 lbs. he is the same type of
ballplayer as Gerald Smith, Mich-
igan's 190-lb. 1960 captain and All-
Conference center," commented
Coach Fouts.
In the backfield will be veteran
Dave Glinka at quarterback; Dave
Raimey, who received All-Amer-
ica mention, and Harvey Chapman

I

will be at the halfbacks with Bill
Dodd at fullback.
Star Caliber
Raimey has looked good in every
scrimmage this year. The195-lb.
senior gained 496 yards and aver-

Weir announced yesterday that

aged five yards per carry last
season. Called by Michigan State
Coach Duffy Daugherty, "one of
the finest backs in collegiate foot-
ball," the Dayton senior will be
the Wolverines' top offensive
threat this year.
"Chapman has improved con-
siderably over last season. He
starts quick and is a strong run-
ner," commented Fouts. "Dodd will
be starting at fullback against Ne-
braska because of Mel Ant ony's

injury. Dodd is a 'heady' ball play-
er with good speed who follows
his blockers well. He's also a fine
blocker himself," Fouts added.
The defensive platoon will.have
Jim Conley -and Bill Laskey at
the ends, Tom Keating and Arnie
Simkus at the tackles, Rich Hahn
and Dave Kurtz at guard and Jim
Green at center.
Safety Men
Defensive backfield duties will
be handled by letterman Jack Stro-
bel, Dick Rindfuss and Wayne
Sparkman. Fouts said "Rindfuss
is a very promising sophomore.
He's good sized at 188-lbs., fast
and strong!'
The third platoon jof offensive
specialists consists of Ben Farabee
and Ron Kocan at end, Jerry Mad-
er and Dick Schram at tackle,
Dave Kovacevich and letterman
Lou Pavloff at guard, and Don
Blanchard at center.
Letterman Bob Chandler or
Frosty Evashevski will call the sig-
nals with veteran Eddie Hood and
Tom Prichard at halfback and
Dodd at fullback, after Anthony
recovers.
