'The Georgia team of 1896 was one of the greatest the Athens squad has ever developed This team marked the last of Pop Warnei s regime and the season was a verj successful one Among others this team defeated North Carolina anel closed the season with a vic- totv over their time-honored rivals, Au- buin The roster of the team contained such names at Atkinson, Kent Clarke, Gammon, Cothran Nalley, Lovejoy, and others ' Gammon who played quarter on this team, was killed the following year in a game with \irgmia in this citv Nalley, n ho plajed at half and was a conspi- uous figure in the victory over Auburn, died just six years later to a flay, and on the day of his death Georgia again triumphed over Auburn for the first time since that victory "Auburn Vanderbilt and Sewanee are the other S I A colleges which showed with strong teams in the later nineties In 1897 and the two following seasons the \labama team showed great strength Bob PVnton a former Virginia captain, and brother of the more recent Auburn fullback, was the star of this team, while Baby' Pierce, a 200-pound tackle, also did great execution In 1898 Mitcham, captain and fullback was the mam show Tho Auburn team defeated Georgia that jear by a score of IS to 17 and it was largely through Mitcham's work that the brackets were earned The team of 1899 was howev er, probablv the most dangerous of the three In the opinion of Coach Heisman this was the best team of his stay at Auburn Best of the Earlier Days. "The "V anderbilt team of 1897 is regard- j ed as the best of that institution's output | in the earlier das This team performed the rather marvelous feat of going through the entire season without having a point scored against it, winding U P the season with a 0 to 0 tie -with Virginia, Among the best of this bunch were Phil Connell Jack Dje Howard Boogher, Ur Lucius Burch and Mike O'Connor "Sewanee's team for the season of 1899 is regarded as one of the best the Purple ev er dev eloped The team cleaned up in great fashion and was In man ways a remarkable aggiegatlon Among the stars of this aggregation were Serbles Krlpat- ilck Simpkins Cope and others The Clemson squad came forward^witn a great team m 1900 Thej won from Georgia by the big margin of 39 to 5, and VANDERBILT'S '06 ELEVEN PICKED AS SOUTH'S BEST Bob Blake..

"In the following' year the University of Nashville turned out one of the most formidable teams in this section They w ere beaten by Vanderbilt in the Thanksgiving game but onlv after they showed a terrible slump fiom their past performances They tfimrrfed Sewanee by the lop-sided score of 39 to 6 and mopped up with about everything else Among the stars of this outfit were Kuykendall Biddie Peake, Pollard KellaJ Choate, Blackburn and White "Cumberland spiang up with a powerful team in 1903 They di opped down to Nashville and trimmed Vanderbilt though they later suffered defeat at the hands of Sewanee Physical!} the team was a grand one It was composed of such physical giants as the Bridges brotheis " Red" Smith Suddaith Head Anderson, and Smiser. "In 1904 Aubuin and Vanderbilt had the field pretty much, to themselves Both went through the season without a defeat Both of them beat Sewanee as well as any other comers but unfortunately no game had been scheduled between them Among the strongest members of the Orange and Blue squad weie Reynolds Foy Lacey Streit, Moon, Patterson, and Perkins Vanderbilt s strength lay principally in Craig, Dan Blake Pritchaid, Patterson, Kjle and Hamilton Bright Years for Commodores. "In the season of '05 Vanderbilt came home with a clear call The team suffered but one defeat that at the hands of Michigan Sewanee was disposed of with a large score as weie Auburn and Clemson and the strong Texas team This team was composed of Bob and Dan Blake Manier C r a r g Tavlor Xyle, Stone Piitchard Patteison and others The following veai founel Vanderbijt ·w ith a clear title for a second time This team held Michigan to a 10 to 4 score BOXING BOUTS THIS WEEK Pool Champion De Oro to Play Hucston Xlfr.

' The Tennessee team for 1908 was a corker This team won consistently until the Vanderbilt gume, which was lost after a great battle Failure on the part of Capt Leach to kick a goal after a touchdown is regarded hy many as the feature that contributed most to the team s defeat This team was strong malnl through the work of two of its backs, though it was a well-balanced team all around Leach at halfback and McCollum at full are the men to whom reference is made "In 1909 Sewanee developed an unusually effective team For the first time since 1902 they beat Vanderbilt while they got a very close decision over Auburn The team achieved much of its success through the work of Lamer Chigger Brown Taulkmberry, Juhan, and Sike Williams "During the past season the same situation obtained with reference Jto Auburn and Vanderbilt as in 1904 No game was scheduled between them while both went through the season without losing except the game which Auburn dropped to Texas a team out of the association The most notable achievement of the Gold and Black team was the feat of holding Yale to a scoreless tie "Among other worthy teams not mentioned In the above list were the Georgia team of the past season Tech In '05 and '06 and Mississippi of the past season Tech was probably best in 'OC They lost to -Vanderbilt hut plaved Sewanee to a tie the score resulting 18 to IS Of all this number 'Auburn '04, Vanderbilt '06 and Sewanee 07 look the best Loses on Thrilling Play.
