SIX \ mi BUI Not Same As When Rockne Held Sway But Still Plenty Hot. BY. JIMMY DONAHUE NBA Servkt Sports Writer 'Two years with Rockne have brought about some changes in Koirc Dame football, nut ihc 1932 team is plenty good! Its first three games of the year against Haskell, Drake and Car. ' negie Tech "revealed the following: ' (.The Irish horde has Just as strong a scoring punch as any team the South Demi institution ever had. • • There's a great deal more bed in ; the line and Ijackflcid, and Rcckne's famous "watch charm' guards, the last and probably nicst famous of whom was litsic Bert Metzger, arc replaced by big bruising fellers. With a varsity roster that Includes 106 players, 23 of whom are ' veteran lettermcn. Coach Hunk Anderson can play chess, checkers, or dominoes with his Hue .and backfleld, and not weaken ii to any noticeable extent. • • * * * -In the games against Haskcll and Drake, the Irish ran up 135 points. True, the opposition was not the stllest in the league, but any team that can run up a point a minute against those two teams in clicking letter perfect. -The summaries of these two games reveal the strength ot the Irish so-called reserves. The report of the Haskell game showed: ."Touchdowns— Banas 3, Melin- kovich (sub for Banas) 3, Hayan . (sub for Melinkovicli) 2, Lukals (sub for Koken), McGufT (sub for Lu'kats), Tobin (sub for Shccket- sld)." -That of the Drake game showed: "Touchdowns— Banns 2. Melin- tovich (sub for Banns), Brancheau (sub for Skeckctskl), Kcsky (sub for Varco), Lukats (sub .for Reseller), Kokcn, Cos; tello (sub for Brnncheau), Labome (sub for Koken)." When one guy gats a ,fqw touchdowns out of his system, An• derson give another a chance at gamboling o'er the lea. .And it looks like -a big year tor Steve Banas! * • • The team this year, its second under Anderson, shows a tonden- py to veer frcm Rocknc's pcn,- chant for 'light, fast men. Anderson may have his own ideas about what a football team should be. . It remains, however, that his 1932 sqliijd Is' a lot heavier thtm past Irish aggregations. Two years ago' little Bert Mclz- . ger,' flghting: weight 155, was the front page thriller of the squad. I This 'year finds an entirely different type of guard playing on both sides of the center. Anderson explains that the new rule, prohibiting ungctitlemaniy use of the 'hands, has made it necessary to replace the short and scrappy guards of yore with some big bruising hulks designed to resist the steam roller rushes at the center of the line by weight and power alone. . His tv;o selections for this post . are Norm Greeney, Cleveland, O.. boy, and Jim Harris, Bcllaire, O. This is Greeney's third y,ear with the squad. He weighs 190, and stands 0 feet 2 inches with his bare tootsies on the ground. -He plays on the right side of the line. Harris is not quite so heavy and tall as Grccney, but he is far ;rom the. "watch charm" type. .lc weighs 188, and is 5 feet 10',-j. '•Following Is a tentative lineup showing the size of one ot the several fronts Coach Anderson can play on the field: . Kosky, 1. e., weight 185, height 6 : .feet 2; Krause, 1. t., weight 212, height 6 feet 2; Harris. I. g,, height 188, height 5 feet 10 ii; Gorman, c, weight 190, height 6 feet 1; Greeney, r. g., weight 190 height 6 feet 2; Kurth, r. t weight 204. height 6 feet IVi Host, r. c., weight !75, height E, feet 11; Jaskwhich, q. b., weight JW, height 5 feet 11; Lukats I h.,. weight 185, height 0 fcef Brancheau, r. h., weight 185, height 5 feet 10!i; Mehnkovich I. . b, weight 180, height 6 feet The team averages about 18' pounds. Anderson has a great fleet ni running backs this year. He alio has a fine nock of blockers. Bu ever since Frank Carideo left th, South Bend school of learning, tin Irish have been below standard a quarter. . This is" chuck Jashwhich' third year, with the squad. HI experience" should entitle him t regular position as signal calle and field general. But his pas pertormancts leave much to be de sired and, if he runs true to tit form sheet this year, Anderso wfll probably delve into the mk die of the pack and unearth ar oibor startling quarterback. .Perhaps this fellow will be lilt U«tt« Vejar, who is starting h second year ' on the squad.
