for fourth game
By BOB WARD
NT will attempt to rebound from last
week’s defeat and noteh its first vietory
of the season against the University of
Southwestern Louisiana at 1:30 p.m.
Saturday at Fouts Field.
‘‘We lacked any kind of intensity
against NLU,” said Corky Nelson, NT
head football coach. “The players just
did not take them seriously. Although
I’m disappointed in the season up to now,
I still believe that the steps we have taken
in building this team are positive.”
Following last Saturday’s loss to NLU,
players questioned team leadership. Nel-
son said. ihe players met on Sunday unu
divided themselves into their defensive
and offensive units, he said, each ap-
pointing a spokesman. They then aired
their opinions w ithout the coaches being
present. “After they collected their
thoughts. I met w ith them and they voiced
their feelings,” he said.
Many of the players believed that the
weekly practices had not been intense
enough. Nelson said, and members of
the defensive unit believed they had been
overcoached and their movements were
not natural. “I also feel that as far as
communicating with them (players), I
have been at practice more in body than
mind. I’ve been spending so much time
selling our football program to the com-
munity, students, and the Dallas-Fort
Worth media that I have been listening,
but probably not hearing.
"I think a lot of positive things came
out of that meeting; we reopened lines
of communication that were good.” Nel-
During the Mean Green's loss to NLU.
Lester Harper, linebacker, was ejected
from the game following two calls of
unsportsman like conduct for apparently
cursing officials. Nelson said.
"I talked with Lester on Sunday, along
w ith several other players who witnessed
the fouls, and they told me that he (Lester)
did not curse the officials on either call,”
Nelson said. “I even had a conference
with that same official after the game,
and he admitted that he missed the orig-
inal call of roughing the ball carrier. He
added that the second call was also un-
neccessary and a penalty should not have
The only changes NT will make lor
the University of Southwestern Louisiana
game w ill be that quarterback Mike Fisher
and receiver Tony Mcrriwcather will be
starting. Nelson said. “We expect a dif-
ferent kind of game in that they stay more
on the ground with the run They can
run the quarterback option, so we have
made adjustments with the defense. We
will go to a zone drop, which will pick
up the receivers more effectively,” said
He said practices this week have been
spirited and much more intense.
The University of Southwestern Loui-
siana comes into the game against NT
with a 2-0 record, having beaten Rice
University and Southwest Texas State.
“After wins over those schools they
(USL) should come into our game living
high,” said Nelson. “Perhaps we can
catch them off-guard, but I wouldn’t count
on it.” Nelson added.
The game will be broadcast beginning
at I 15 pm on K NT! : SKI FV1I with

The NT athletic department has ended temporar-
ily its search for a tennis coach by hiring Khosrow
Ebrahim as the team’s new coach, NT Athletic Di-
rector Fred McCain said Wednesday.
Ebrahim fills the vacancy left by A.G. Longoria,
who resigned the position at the beginning of this
school year. Longoria quit coaching at NT to spend
time as publisher and editor of Texas Tennis Magazine.
Ebrahim said Tuesday that he has a verbal agree-
ment with McCain to coach both the men’s and wom-
en's programs for nine months He will be paid as
NT's tennis coach until May. “After nine months,
we will determine my status and if I will continue as
the tennis coach,” Ebrahim said
Ebrahim received his bachelor's degree in physi-
cal education at NT in 1976. He also received his
mas' r's degree in education in 1977 at NT.
ms is not Ebrahim’s first experience as a coach
foi the NT athletic program. In 1978, he was an
assistant volleyball coach and in 1979. Ebrahim served
as the head coach of the women’s volleyball program.
Ebrahim is a native of Tehran. Iran, and moved
to the United States in 1969. He spent two years at
Temple Junior College before transferring to Pep-
pciumc University in Caiilm ilia tu play VOllcybiiii.
He spent five years playing volleyball for the Iranian
national team, competing in international competitions
for that team.
“I’ve been playing tennis for the past five years,”
Ebrahim said, “which isn't much. But I know a lot
of the players and am familiar with what I have to
do to organize the team.”
Ebrahim said he will serve more as an organizer
of the team than as a coach “I will make sure that
the players are well-conditioned and they will take
care of their playing."

NT Frisbee club to compete
in Austin ultimate tourney
The NT Ultimate Frisbee Club will
compete this weekend in Austin at a tour-
nament sponsored by the LJT-Austin club.
Twelve teams are entered in the tourna-
ment, with most of the participants from
Texas universities’ club sports programs.
This tournament will be the first in a
series of three, leading up to the state
tournament to be held Oct. 16 and 17 in
Texas City. The two other tournaments
scheduled for this fall will be at TCU in
Fort Worth and Texas A&M in College
The game of ultimate Frisbee is played
similarly to flag football in that a person
is stopped from advancing by pulling
flags. In ultimate Frisbee, 11 players from
each team arc on the field, and posses-
sion of the Frisbee changes when the Fris-
bee is either dropped or blocked (inter-
cepted) by opponents. The winning team
is the first to score 15 points in a game,
each score counting as one point.
The club practices at 4:30 p in. ev-
ery Tuesday through Thursday on the west
lawn of the PEB.
THE NT intramural swimming and
diving meet entries are due by 3:30 p.m.
