Nebraska made a miserable showing In
the gumo with Kunsas Saturday, nnd now
everybody Is wondering why. Whore did
tho fuult lie -In the players, In the coach
ing, or In the physical condition of tho
Tho members of the Nebraska eleven.
with the possible exception of Purdy,
should have been In tho best of condition.
They had not had a hard gamo for two
weeks, when they played Missouri. The
Douuo affair was no hardship for any of
The members of the team played fine
defen.'lvi' ball; there Is no denying that.
As evidence: The manner In which they
held tho Juyhawkers on tho Nebraska
onc-ynrd line. There uro several veterans
on tho team, Harmon, Krnle Frank,
Purdy, nnd Pearson. Tho other players
are new to the team, or practically new.
But this Is near the end of the season,
so all of them have had practically a full
season of 'varsity foot bull: some have
pluyed two and three years. They ought
to bo pretty good men at this time of the
year, and they should have put up n
better game than they did Saturday. But
why didn't they do better?
No Offensive Mnchlnr.
The writer really bcllovcs the reason
Nebraska did not play better foot ball
yesterday Is the sumo reason which kept
them from winning nt Minnesota; that
held them to eeven points nt Missouri
they do not have n strong offensive ma
Never since tho days of "Dummy"
Dooth 1ms Nebraska had a consistent
ground-gaining machine. Tho Corn
huskcr elevens have always been gr?at
defensive teams. Look over the records
of the game played tho past years, nnd
one will readily see that even against the
beat teams Nebraska has always put up
a wonderful gnmo on tho dofense. Dut It
has never developed n strong scoring ma
chine. Tho Cornhuskers always run up many
points on weak elevens, because end runs
und fukes work very well. In tho Kan
sas Agglo game, li tho Delleveue contest
and In the Doano exhibition, Nebraska
chalked up us many points as It liked.
But In the Missouri, tho Minnesota and
tho Kansns games' It did not register
many points. It wus outplayed on tho
offense In tho Minnesota; for moro than
thrco quurtors In tho Kansas battle; end
for ono qunrter In the Missouri contest.
But none of these teams did better work
on the defense than tho Cornhuskers,
Minnesota scored on the Cornhuskers
because the Nebraskans suffered a pen
alty, resulting In the first touchdown, and
becuuso a forward pass was intercepted,
giving tho second score. Tho Gophers
did not win by consistent tearing down
of tho Cornhusker defense, Kansas could"
not score, except by tho nlr lino, and
Missouri could not tally at all. Tho Ne
braska defense always has been brilliant.
Against nil teams met last fall It was
very effective, except early in the fall
when the Minnesota shift and split plays
ripped up tho lino for a portion of the
Only one time, slnco tho days of Dooth,
have tho Cornhuskers displayed great of
fensive foot boll, and that was In the
Michigan gamo of last season. The
ground gainers then wero plays that
should rank among the best In tho west.
The players who were used In them did
somo of tho best work that was done
In this section of the country last fall.
They fought hard, they studied their po
sitions, and they made themselves power
ful cogs In a machine that was well oiled
and that really outplayed the strong
Wolverine band. Tho offenso of last fall
In tho Minnesota gamo was a Joke; In
tho Missouri game it was effective only
because the Cornhuskers could turn the
ends for long gains; In the Kansas game
It scored heavily,' because the Kansas
ends und backs were very weak. In the
Ames gamo It could do very little; It met
a defenso that was strong. There were
no plays which would guin ground well.
Purdy was the , only man on tho. team
who could advance tho bull for any con
Coach Williams 'beats Nebraska each
fall at Minneapolis because, he knows
that the Cornhuskers never have a pow
erful scoring machine and"' builds his
style accordingly. He knows that If he
can score once or twice he has the Corn
huskers llckod. He nearly always scores,
too, apd the. Cornhuskers are always
licked. He had better material this fall
than Nebraska. Men like Purdy, Hal
ltcan. Allan, Frank, Towle, Swanson and
Howard are among some of the best foot
ball material In the west. If Purdy were
in the hands of a Yale or Princeton
coach, he would be one of the best backs
In the country'- Halllgan would be his
equul under tho same conditions. Towle
would be a wonderful quarter, too. Allan
and Swanson would be remarkable line
men. Nebraska does not halve the offense It
should possess. To tho credit of Coach
Ewald Stlehm, a hard and thorough stu
dent of the same, Ut It be said that
Nebraska has had a better offensive foot
ball team since he came than at any
other time since the days of Booth. In
tho opinion of the writer the offense of
Nebraska's under the reign of "King"
Colo (one of the best gentleman, who
every coached a foot ball eleven), was
Should I, Irk Rophrr.
With tho material the Cornhuskers had
at that time, Nebraska should have licked
Minnesota at least twice. The Cornhusk
ers tied the Gophers once In n 0 to 0
game, showing that the defense was
wonderful; but Cole's men could not score.
It is not Ropher luck that keeps us from
scoring every fall; It is a Minnesota de
fense. Nebraska must get a better sys
tem of attack before It can hope to beat
Minnesota. Its attack Is not versatile
enough1. This year it is centered around
a few plays and players. No Wnm can
play great foot ball when it actually
depends on ono or two men.
Nebraska's offense lacks the "punch,"
and until this asset Is put Into the ma
chine, Nebraska Is going to remain in
Its present class a prey to Minnesota
every fall, nnd to some of tho Mis
