Mavs Get Offense on Track Again

It's a wonder UNO survived it. For one three-week stretch in October, the Mavericks' offense was operating like a unit that had no business being part of a North Central Conference championship team. UNO wasn't scoring in the first half, then barely getting enough in the second half to win. The Mavs finally found their offense - or at least enough of it- in their final three games. They'll take a little confidence that it can function adequately into Saturday's 1:05 p.m. home playoff game with Pittsburg State.



Blocked Punt Keys Holy Family in Eight Man-2 Final

On a day that was a punter's nightmare, Lindsay Holy Family rallied to win its first state football title. After Holy Family had two punts blocked earlier in the game, Kyle Gronenthal blocked a Sargent punt midway through the final quarter Thursday at Memorial Stadium, and Holy Family scored four plays later for a 28-24 victory in the Eight Man-2 final. Carl Jarecki, who led No. 5 Holy Family (12-1) with 90 yards on 25 carries, ran 7 yards for the winning touchdown with 4:42 left in the game.

Solich Plans to Keep Calling Plays for NU

In spite of some public grumbling about play calling, Nebraska Coach Frank Solich has assured his offensive coordinator that his job is safe. The vote of confidence sits well with the offensive coordinator, who, at the risk of sounding defensive, points out the Huskers rank among the national leaders in rushing offense (first), scoring offense (fifth) and total offense (fifth). "I think I give us, for the most part, our best chance," said the offensive coordinator.

NU Wrestling Coach Envisions Title

When you think about the best college wrestling programs in the country, a handful of schools immediately come to mind. Six-time defending national champion Iowa, Big 12 powers Iowa State and Oklahoma State, and 1999 Big Ten champion Minnesota. First-year Nebraska Coach Mark Manning is planning to add another school to that elite group.
