Sunday Morning {ZTribimc- Oclober 3, 1941 B 9 Longhorns Bury Louisiana State, 34-0 By Jimmy Hodgson It takes only a few breaks to wreck a football season. That's why most coaches persist in being pessimistic. Bernie Bierman of Minnesota won the mythical national title last year and in 1939 he won only four "of his eight-game schedule. Yet Bierman figures his 1939 eleven was every bit as strong as his 19-10 national champions, but they just didn't got the breaks— not the right kind of breaks. Bierman says he can go over the 1939 campaign and point out where a miscalled play, a dropped punt, an untimely foul and a fumbled pass cost* him the four games and meant the difference between a brilliant and a poor sea- ( ion. * * * Coach Ike Armstrong's Utes won the 1940 honors in the Big Seven conference. His 1939 squad lost one game and finished second in the circuit, just a mediocre season. But ths TJtc mentor believes that his 1939 crew was probably a better all- around club than his 19-JO champions, who also lost one game. The 1940 team got some breaks that the previous squad didn't. * t * Decides Champions The breaks play an all-important part in this interesting college sport.

Coach Dana Bible used every man on the squad save one who was injured. Neither team had been expected to show very much because of the wet gridiron and the blinding rain which fell during the first quarter. Big- Pete Layden proved himself a great mudhorse in the brief time he was allowed to play, running on one occasion 65 yards for a touchdown and making long gains almost at will through the line. T C U Wins, 9 to 0, Over Razorbacks FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Oct. 4 (.?•)—Texas Christian university had everything — especially defense—Saturday as the Horned Frogs gained a 9-0 victory over the University of Arkansas Razorbacks in the opening Southwest conference football game before 6000 rain-drenched fans. The Frogs took advantage of the wind to score, once in the second period when Frog End Phil Roach leaped above Max Sailing, Porker back, to grab a 31-yard touchdown pass from Kyle Gillespie.

League With the first round of the but- tle for the championship of the intermountain junior college football conference already completed, it is still about as safe to predict the '41 champs as to show Yankee leanings in the Flatbush camp these days. One thing is certain, however, and that is that Dixie Fliers of St. George, coholders with Ricks college of the title last year, are definitely out of the running-, following- the 40 to 0 lambasting- they suffered at the hands of the Mesa college Mavericks at Grand Junction, Colo., Friday night. Although Coach R. L. (Bob) Davis' Weber college gridders took it o nthe nose, 19 to 0, at the hands of Fullerton jaycces of California the same night in Ogden stadium, the Wildcats may prove to be as lough as anything in the league, since the Hornets represented an area where topnotch grid machines are produced. Mavericks Impressive Mesa's win from the Dixie col- | leg-e aggregation, which is prob- ; ably the most lacking- in reserves | of any team in the league this ^ year, was impressive more from 1 • he standpoint of the reserve pow- • or of the Coloradoans than from j their victory alone. The Maverick ; regulars are good, especially Dor- ^ sey, the league game indicated. Their successful taming of the Dixie boys, with a 34 to 7 victory ver Carbon last week, puts the Mavericks unofficially out in front f the league race, with two wins and 74 points made, compared to even for opponents.

Ray Jenkins, Colorado earth- captain of the Bears, said after the BYU contest Friday that the Cougars were a much better squad than Wyoming, with more power and drive and a better all-around attack and a much superior passing game than the Cowboys.

Use of T' Formation Boosts Stock of Redskin Gridders (Continued From Page 7 B) is no other offense that carries the possibilities for tricks and deception offered by the "T." Every back does his part in the faking but it's the man-in-motion that takes the lead and causes the most concern.

Dave has been around Beaver for so long he's just as much a part of the town as the main stem and when he indicated that fans thei-e were getting more interested he probably touched off the feelings of fans in other southern Utah towns. The six-man game has all the characteristics of its big and better known brother. Players block, tackle, pass and run with the ball —at least they are supposed to do those things. Downfield blocking and tackling often exceeds that in the 11-man game. The fact that every play must start from a pass, either forward or lateral, tends to make the midget game a wide-open affair. Players wear pretty much standard equipment except they usually don lighter shoes than those used in the 11-man structure. As a result of every, play :tarting from a pass, the ooys Fred Rice and John Harrington, end. Bob Dams added the extra, points. Marlin (Pat) Harder, Wisconsin's sophomore fullback, gained a total of 79 yards, only one less than Richardson, and scored his team's sole touchdown to which Fullback Bob Ray added the point by placekick. Marquette made 15 first downs to 11 for Wisconsin. In the first period, the passes of Richardson to Ray Carlson carried the Milwaukceans inside Wisconsin's 10-yard 1'ine, but the visitors failed to score before the end of the period, Long- Gains Shortly after Marquette's second period score, Wisconsin drove down to Marquette's 30 with long gains by Harder and Don Miller, but Miller fumbled to end this threat. A drive from beyond midfield led to the one-foot line and cleared the way for Harder's touchdown early in the third period.

The quarterback is the brains and heart of the team. He must 'be a fine passer and an expert ball handler and field general as well as a good runner. The dominant features of the "T" are a balanced line with ends split, a halfback in motion and a quarterback who handles the ball under center. Besides its many other advantages, the "T" is a favorite with the players. The backs like it because no man is sacrificed as a blocker. .Every back carries the ball.

Dale Bradley, a junior and minor letter winner last year, carried the ball over both times, first on a one-yard drive through the line and again on a 10-yard cutback through a big hole at right tackle. "Vike" Francis made one conversion from placement, and Victor Schleick, a tackle, the other. A wet field handicapped both teams, and in the final period it rained so hard that most of the 15.000 spectators left. Iowa State made a battle out of the game except for a few minutes in the first and third periods. In the second period the Cyclones lost a scoring chance through a bad pass from center, and another by the gun ending the half as the ball rested on Nebraska's 15. Late in the fourth period, Town State substitutes, sparked by Howard Tippee, a sophomore back, carried the ball from midfield to Nebraska's three. The Cornhuskers avoided being scored upon wheji Wayne Blue intercepted a Tippc* pass. Iowa State made 12 first downs to 11 for Nebraska, and completed 11 of 20 passes for a gain of 103 yards. Nebraska tried five passes and completed one. Bradley and a sophomore, Howard Debus, provided the only speed in the Nebraska backfield, which rolled up 146 yards by rushing.

Help Cagerx Most of the coaches believe their basketball teams will be better for having six-man football on the program. This sounds a bit like paying tribute to the largct instead of the shooter, but it's logical. The fact that pass plays arc numerous in six-man football makes for prood ball handlers. In basketball good ball han- dlimr is just as important as /rood shooting and as a result of their learning one of the fundamental rules of the hoop sport, while cmraTerl in football, coaches believe they'll have their hoop teams in good shape when the time for roll call rolls 'round. Rules governing the midget ;ame vary some from those in use in ll-man play. A touchdown counts six points, but a pass for extra point yields only ne noint while a kick for extra joinl—if successful—results in wo points. The field is 20 yards ;horter and not so wide, but iside from a few small differ- mces the two games have much n common. If six-man football gains in popularity it is not taking in too much territory to see it being played in Sanpcte and Emery county schools.
