Thus far I haven't delved h to the Intricalc machinery set up by each coach to thwart and outwit adversaries- It's a lot of balderdash, If you ask me—har-rmnpli! When I was blocking Thorpe, I simply took five or six stalwarts out of the famed Indian's pathway. I think you will find that the best football system ever devised. Boiled down it simply u this: Knock somebody down. The great coaches or other years, Stagg, Dodie and Pop Warner, used to ask my advice about some new wrinkle (hey thpught would dazzle the opposition. Inv .riably i would tell them to stick to the old scheme. While a great many coaches rush about with diagrams in every pocket, let me point to Notre Dame as a vindication' of my theory. Coach Leahy declares Notre Danie excels only in spirit. They just give somebody the ball and a bunch or spirits. rush around the field smacking down everybody wearing a strange uniform. After Notre Dame executes a cutback through tackle, a great many bodies lie strew:i about the field, felled by those Notre Dame .spirit!;. It's the best system of all.
