Ilia teams at Alabama wen national prominence by winning th southern champion-ship in 1924-25-21 and playing In th Tournament of Boms tw years In awecetsion in 192S and 1927. - By WALLACE WADE Coach, UnlTersity of Alabama - . rvKE Southern Conference con-slst of 23 large universities and this naturally makes a championship difficult to win. .But the fact that, the leading teams play ; from six to eight conference opponents results In a schedule which . Is un usually difficult for any team to finish undefeated. Last season three teams were undefeated in the conference Georgia Tech, Vander- bilt and Tennessee. Georgia Tech Georgia and Van- derbUt appear, at this time, to have the best prospects for a champion ship team this falL ; ; - r - ; Georgia Tech should have a great team because from the strong undefeated 1827 team only two men are lost Last year's squad furnished strong reserve material. as well as regulars; to this will be addea some splendid freshmen, players. Tech will have a veteran backfield consisting, of Thomason, Misell, Randolph and Durante The team should be heavy, fast and .experi enced and should have a splendid forward passing attack. I believe Georgia Tech should riave one of the outstanding teams pi the year, Georgia's team was good u.t year, largely on account of a splen did backfield that-could run, block and pass, and was exceptionally effective on defense. This complete backfield ; combiantion will return. Two very good 'ends will .be missed. but it is believed Georgia will oe aa sood as last year, when It was the only team 'to defeat Yale. From Vandcrbilt'a -undefeated learn of last year three exceptionally good men will be lost pears, Quarterback: Creson, end: ' and Sharpe, center. However,' Vender biltjias a great back returning la Armistead. and several good men who were Ineligible last year -have become eligible and Vafiderbilt wiU begin the season with the best ma terial In years. ... Tennessee also finished the season undefeated last year .and has bright prospects for another great team In spite of the fact thaTseven regulars from the' 1927 team will be missing. Tennessee has some exceptionally 1 promising , sopho mores to replace these lost stars. Alabama, Mississippi University, Florida, Auburn, Louisiana , State University, Virginia Poly and North Carolina State all have hopes of Ij I) haivng teams that will be In. the running this year. Many of the Southern'Conference teams will begin the season with new coaches this fall. After one of Georgia's most successful sea sons. Coach George Woodruff re signed and was succeeded by his chief assistant Harry Mehre. of Notre Dame.: It is expected Mehre will continue the policies which have been used at Georgia during the past few years. ' Coach Sewing- resigned -from the University of Florida after a sue cessful season. He will be succeed ed by: Charles Bachman, who le- veloped several fine teams at Kan sas Aggies. Bachman should have goodroaterlal anda great deaLit expected from his first team in the South. , . ' ' Russell Cohen, who has coached at Georgia, Mercer, Vanderbilt and Alabama, has taken charge at Louisiana State. He knows southern football as .well as any man in the South, and if given proper support will undoubtedly develop a strong team t Baton Rmt&v''r?'?'" George Bonier, after several years of very successful experience at Mississippi College, has become head coach at Auburn.1 Auburn has good material and Bonier ihar re juvenated the old Auburn spirit to such an extent that his team will be a hard one to defeat this faU. . Billy Laval, whose teams at Fur man won more gamea from conference opponents than any other 8. L A. A. team, goes to South Carolina as head coach. His material will be good, and there is no doubt as to his ability to make the most of it. . - There are only three cocabes in the . conference who . have been at their present positions more than five years, They are. McGugln at yanaerout, syra at Aiaryiana ana Alexander at .. Georgia Tech. A great improvement has been made during the past year or so by those teams in the Southern Conference which had not been so strong in football. Probably .Mississippi Unl versity, under Homer Hazel, has made the r greatest Improvement Conditions are now such that a Southern Conference team Is a wor thy opponent for any team. Among the 8. L A. A. teams, Centenary, Howard and Chattanooga appear to have the best prospects lor .Outstanding teams. All of these teams have veteran4 players returning and are prepared to make a strong bid for. the champion' ship. - . GIANTS WITHIN V GAME OF CARDS NEW YORK. Sept 13. JA-Eight straight wins over the Boston Braves In four days -have placed 'the New York Giants within one game of the St Louis Cardinals in the na tional . league pennant race. A game and a half behind the Giant are the Chicago Cubs, who were idle yesterday. .. Today the Giants play the Robins in Brooklyn. Dazzy Vance is due to go to the mound for the Robins, and Vance has alwas been a problem for the New York team. Gene-wich is likely to pitch for New York. In Philadelphia, the St. Louis Cardinals have a chance to increase their lead as a double-hedder Is scheduled with the Phillies. The Chicago Cubs also have a double-header scheduled with the Boston Braves, which is the fifth straight double-header for the Braves. The American league pennant contenders swing into action again this afternoon. The Yankees, with a game and a half lead, face the St Louis Browns in St. Louis.
