In splt> of all this, don't be In too much of a hnrry to "count 10" on Illinois tills rcnson'. Glance back over the records first, And pay particular . attention to the lean years at Illinois and to the iwr- fTinanccs of her mediocre teams. In 1916, Illinois did not cut any figure in the Conference race. Minnesota had one of the mightiest teams tl» West ever saw anil defeated To\va, Wisconsin and Chicago by a combined score of 170 t^ 0- No football critic has been able to explain how that Illinois outfit, defeated th.~ Gophers H to 9. In 1921, Ohio State- hadn't lost ft single same. Illinois had failed to win a single Conference contest. In the final game Oln'T Slat} was a cineh and the Bold footballs emblematic of (be championship had been ordered. Final score: Illinois 7, Ohio State 0, and 'another Buctoye championship dream I shattered! | In 1922, a hopeless nutnt from | Champalen handed Wisconsin an 1 unexpected Jolt. In 1925, the- Illini i were defeated by Nebraska, Iowa j and Michigan in turn, only to go East and whip Pennsylvania, conquerors of Yale and Chicago and undefeated for two years In the East, 24 to 2. • • • No matter how ordinary tr-tf material, nor how disastrous the season. In some one game the Illini rose to the heights, played football that was little short of llv: heroic, and accomplished the impossible. That's a football tradition ai Illinois/ and It has been Influenced in its development by a forceful personality- Wherewith is introduced, In this corner, at HO pounds, '"Fighting Dob" Znppkv. The ability to inspire ordinary riaterlal to perform "way over its head" up'n occasions, is the mark ct a great football coach.
