P'ARR STX Tosses 'Em For Money Now Pitt Coach Puts Collegians Ahead of Money Gricl- ders As Players. —' BY JOCK SUTHERLAND "Coach, University of rilUburgli '" PITTSBURGH, Nov. 13.—In every football conch's life llieio ' conies a lime when IM? feels like co:npr>rlng collegiate football with professional footbnll. And de-spitc the ovcrwhcming criticism wliirh such n comparison is sure to awaken, 'that's exactly wlial I pro- j liosc to do.'In the first place, (lie professional player has certain advantages which Insure him greater skill ,'lliaii tin.' college player, lie Is gcn- . .erally tiircc to six ycai'S older, anil those years liavc nnriLK'Stionnbly brought a wealth of football jx- 'pcrience that the college player cannot hope to combat. * * * ""In the second place, tlie professional is able and more likely to concentrate iiiion the si>ori more intensely than decs the collegian. To him, football Is his means of livelihood, and for four months out of the year lie thinks of-nothing else. His fear of being fined forces him to train, and knowing that the only way lie can remain in the ducralire profession is by constant practice, he dirccls all his energies toward improvement and efficiency. The college player, on the other hand, is forced to assume other duties. He must carry a weekly schedule of approximately 15 hours of classroom work. He is expected to spend at least 30 hours weekly, outside of class, studying; and unless he docs, ho is frequently declared Ineligible. Besides, the average athlete is engaged in one or two fraternity w campus activities that dcmniifl time. The result is that lie finds himself unable to concentrate upon football. He applies 'himself when on the practice field, but after spending two or three hours In football togs, he must hurriedly .return to his room niid tackle books on philosophy or political science. • • • Granting, then, that professional football should be superior, to college football, I now feel obllg- ?d to explain why 1 believe thai Jn reality It sometimes is not. If you take the outstanding • college team ol the country, whose players are all big and heavy and experienced, and in addition Imbued with the typical college spirit . (which no urofcsslonal [cam hns\ I believe that by virtue of its spirit and enthlisiasm, It' will be able to oppose a professional team successfully. .All of us know cases where determination and spirit have overcome superior, ability. I for o;ie still believe in that old Roosevelt £lo;an, "If you won't be licked, 1 you can't be licked." ' Take the. instance of Reb Russell, the great fullback of the New York Glnnts. A few Weeks aflo I saw him tear the line of the Pittsburgh Professionals to shreds. Yet in 1923 when he was playing for Nebraska, an Inspired University ol :?ittshiirgh team held Nebraska scoreless and without a first down for the entire game, and there were no Pill substitutions. In 1930 I saw this same Russell, then playing for Northwestern, held on the two yard line for four successive downs by a Notre Dame team. * « » In professional football, the emotional appeal of the sport censes with the final whistle of the game. In collegiate football, the jubilation of victory' and the pathos of defeat extend into the very hearts of the players. To one group the game is a producer of revenue. To the other it is a great sport. To one it Is something to be endured. To the other it is something for which to live. To say that it is unfair to compare professional football with collegiate football, purely on a basis of excellence of play, is to summarize the obvious. Good sportsmanship, friendship, love of the game unadulterated by monetary 1 motives, are only a few ol the factors that must be considered. I sincerely believe that college football, because of the things for •••which it stands and motivates, should be placed abend of professional football. )^COURIER NEWS Slides 'V Bill Braucher^ BKUSHUNG UP_SPOKTS By Laufer 3, 1933 Hnrry Ncwrhan Michigan's great forward pa/scr now flinging touchdowns lor lliL 1 prolcsMonnl ~ NIV.V Yjirk Gliis-ls nnrt catching a few, too.
