Oct. 19. lift— College football is on a point - a - minute binge, : but leading coaches disagreed today on what is responsible for the astronomical scoring trend. "It's the platoon system." chorused one group of mentors, including fvy Williamson of Wisconsin, Mnt- ty Bell :of SJiI,U., f Jess Neely of Rice and J. V. Sikes of Kansas. '-The platoon system has nothing to do with it," argued others, such as Earl Blalk of Army, Henry Frnka of Tulane and Biggie Munn of Michigan State. Most of the agreed In an Associated Press siirvey that the sport has become definitely "offense minded," ! -\tliat coaches ' make no special effort, to roll up impressive tallies and that.' the liberal substitution .rule plays a' big part In keeping the ^Scoreboard busy. They traced ' the assembly line point-making also to "eager Iirav- who. tin-own into after building un a lead. "•"On the other hand." he added, "reserves filay hard to become regulars and they can't be told not to run, block or tackle. Against Tulane we used 54 boys, threw one pass after the first half and the regulars look over only once In the second hnlf." Leahy said roaches generally are .concentrating on offensive lilay and acknowledged he himself worked "overtime on the scoring department."
