Several have donned shoulder pads and cleats in the Big Ten. Two of the foremost stars who have returned are Paul Sarringhaus Sarringhaus of Ohio State and Pete Pihos ot Indiana. Sarringhaus, 190-pound 190-pound 190-pound halfback halfback who spearheaded Ohio State's drive to the Big Ten and national championship in 1942, toed the scrimmage line last Saturday Saturday after 20 months in the army. And if possible, he was a tougher, harder hitting runner than ever before as he sparked the Bucks to a 47 to 6 victory over Missouri. Pihos, 1943 all-Amerlcan all-Amerlcan all-Amerlcan end, slipped back into Indiana's style of attack Saturday as if he had only beon away for the weekend instead of earning bravery citations citations during four European battles. battles. Indiana was being whipped 7- 7- 0 by Northwestern going into the final quarter when Pihos, playing fullback, sneaked through the Northwestern defense to snare a pass on the five-yard five-yard five-yard line. He plowed the final five with three Northwestern players clinging to him and scored the one Hoosier touchdown for a 7 to 7 tie. Pihos' comeback is one ot a fighting heart. He had only two days of practice before Saturday. But he ripped through the Northwestern Northwestern line time and again. Often he missed the hole because of the unfamiliar plays but he seldom failed to gain yards. The return of Pihos makes Indiana Indiana a slight favorite over Illinois Illinois Saturday when those two long-standing long-standing long-standing rivals open their Big Ten seasons at Champaign. Indiana, however, promises to be the "unpredictable" of the Big Ten this year. THE "SPORTSMAN" ,
