Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier left a Lincoln hospital Wednesday after three days of treatment dissolved a blood clot behind his right knee.

Coach Tom Osborne said it will be up to the doctors to determine when Frazier can return to workouts. Physical contact is forbidden because he is on blood-thinners.

"I don't think it's a done deal that he'll miss the rest of the season necessarily," Osborne said.

Junior quarterback Brook Berringer is scheduled to make his first start against Wyoming on Saturday.


Since leading the Buffalo Bills to two AFL championships in the 1960s, Lou Saban has been around--and around and around.

Saban's travels brought him back to familiar turf Wednesday when he was named to head the new football program at tiny Alfred (N.Y.) State College, a two-year technology school 75 miles southeast of Buffalo.

"I have been known as a peripatetic coach," said Saban, 72. "The first time I was called that, I thought it was a dirty word. I looked it up in the dictionary and found it meant I moved around a lot."

In June, he was fired from his most recent job as coach of the new Arena Football League team, the Milwaukee Mustangs, after they got off to an 0-4 start.

"I've coached at all levels, covered the gamut, and I've never really seen any difference," he said. "My coaching techniques are pretty much the same, with some adjustments for what younger players can and can't do."
