,PAHE'SIX Trick Passes and Runnir Formations Tax Back Throughout Game. !!>• UK!) GUANOi: CHICAGO. — Watching Illlno defeat Ohio State last Saturd H lo 13, 1 was struck Ij.v the le rifle burden Ihe modern gnu places on the secondary defcns In Die old days—in lad, i longer than my own limes in cc logo—when n back tucked the bi under his arm lie was urclly coi tain to run with It. Except o and split bucks, th secondary defense could drive i confidently (o help nail (he run ner if the latter broke through th standard seven-mini line. Now th early development of pliiys reveal little or nothing of what may hnp- pon before the strntngcin Is com pteted. Today a good defense back must have .speed afoot nyd plenty between the ears to coj>e with modern attacks. For instance, In the Ohio i>amc, Illinois completed a pass for n 35-yard gull) which iras highly complicated. It started with a reverse, which was followed by a .short lateral pass. The receiver thereupon throw another lateral pass back across the field to licynon, who then tossed a long forward pass down the field to nn Illlnl who hnd •time to shnkc the secondary during tills maneuvering. Those plays Involve danger of Interception with ii ninback to n touchdown bill in the modern game you've got to gamble. • » • Back In 1925 we scored on Pcnn- Ej'lvania with n so-called "flea- flicker." which wns nothing more complicated than a short forward pass followed by a lateral, 'llml play was hniled as being "10 years ahead of its lime." Today It Is routine practtve even In Briunniar school football. Znppke has led . the field consistently In ollense trickery. Ills bewildering attack this year Is born of necessity, for Ids boys have neither weight nor power. The team is the skinniest nnd scrawniest, with the stoutest fighting hearts I've ever seen in Dig Ten football. Outweighed 10 or 12 pounds to Ihc man, the Illlnl look the. fight to Ohio. It wns a tough game for tlie Buckeyes to lose, for the team lias a powerhouse running snme and should finish near the top of the heap. • • • • I am not being merely complimentary to Ihc foo when I say that''the Ohio backfleld of Pin- curn, Heekin, -...Boucher, Kabcalo, Welzel and Smith make np the best balanced outfit I've seen in many a tiny. This combination of backs cnn do everything with u football. To. slop them, the small Illlnl fo\ight Itself Into exhaustion during the first three quarters Saturday.
