Origin cf Shift Tlie shift has been u matter of controversy since, it wns originated by Dr. Harry Williams at Minnesota about 1903. In the old Minnesota shift all II players clianged positions. It was purely i ||!' a power attack and the purpose!' was lo get more players to .r [ given spot than -the defense could muster and get -them there first. The rules al the time were Indefinite and their interpretation a matter of dispute. Tlie shifting ' team was generally In motion when the ball was passed and thr= • gave them an unfair edge over p team .that did not use the shift. Non-shifting teams refused t3 Bcheflulc teams that employed the shift. The "old school" demanded tliat it-be abolished. The Notre Dame Offense Notre: Dame's mnln offensive weapon is its running attack. It typifies speed and deception rnth- er Umu power. RocXne employs only a backfleld shift and uses it If develop rhythm and co-ordlnatlor in the light List Notre D«me backs The shifts are varied and a. change of pace is introduced so that If th/ ..defense disregards the ball in ' charging, they are apt to be off . side. Other successful coaches prefer a set offense. If there wns any material advantage and the shit! was .suited to their material, they would use It. • Rockne uses this style, of attack to perfect rhythm, gain.deception, and to'kecp ihc defense back 'ori jts hetls. He believes 'it. has 'enabled Notre Dome to compete upon'an equal basis with teams possessing . more inherent power. Naturally, those who follow Rocfche's system oppose.further restrictions . which ' would virtually -abolish the shift. ; Roles Restrict Shift •Unfair momentum as the ball' Is passed 'was eliminated, as far as the rules are concerned, by legislation . several years" ago. Tlie question has been a simple one. Do all. the "shifting players come to an' absolute stop, remain stationary for a second before the ball is .passed? If they do, the shift ' Is legal. In spite of the clear provisions of the > rules, the annual criticism of the'shift continues. Some of It is justified. Some coaches are not concerned whether .their teams - stop. or«not. Some officials are timid in their rulings and this results in varying enforcement. On -the other hand,'there tire coaches who let out a yelp every time they meet a shifting team. The alibi for the defeat is the claim of illegal motion. Some of them are not satisfied with a stop —they want a vacation. The annual discussion centers around Rockne, though Notre Dame is only one of a hundred teams that use the shift. ,Notre Dame Shift Legal The crux of the matter is the . spirit .in which the shift is used Ethically, there U nothing unfair about the Notre Dame shift, and coaches such as Rockne. Phelan and Dorais time their own shift and know, when it Is within tlie rules. Fielding Yost was heard.. to remark alter the Notre Dame-Southern California game last fall. "I uculd have been pprfeclly satis- fled with 'Rock's' shift. Notre Dame came to a complete stop and *.hclr shift was psrtectly legal." Few of Notre Dame's major opponents offer any criticism of their shift in the backfiold . The 1930 Rules .The 1930 rules are not really -banged at all. The use ol the words "at least a second" instead o! "approximately a second" is 8 substitution of a specific for an ambiguous term. The change in the suggested count by the ret eree In timing the duration of the pause Is probably an effort t " &Uflerr,iip weak-kneed officials. T*»ms with a legal shift wil use It in 1930. Coaches who hav been trying to get by -with some thing else may find it more difficult this arisen. The rules are . and have 1**n ample. Their en• foretmcot Is all that It necessary and that IB simply a matter of I officiating. :-' .Good Job, Hill .
