Jayhawks Have Work Against TCU Offense KANSAS CITY GB—If Big Seven football teams seem befuddled by their opponents' plays in season openers next'week, you can't say they weren't properly briefed. Most of the conference coaches already have given their squads a taste of what to expect from the opposition. The Kansas Jayhawks tried out a defense against Texas Crhstian University plays. They concluded their workout Wednesday with a pass scrimmage. The Kansas State freshmen, using Bradley University plays, gave the varsity considerable trouble in a scrimmage. At the University of Missouri, Coach Don Faurot had his squad work on a forward passing attack against the Maryland type of defense. Both teams use the split T extensively. The University of Oklahoma, which is the only .conference school not playing an opening game Sept. 20, romped through a two-hour scrimmage with the second stringers defeating the first stringers. Three passers — Eddie Crowder, Buddy Leake and Billy Vessels—sparkled.
