N'ctre Dame made a sorry spectacle of herself when she started passing. * I * II nw It Works What is this G-3-2, and how docs it function against Notre Dame style? Well, it's very simple when you stop to think about it. Just place six men on the line of scrimmage, pulling one of the linemen back. This lineman and two of the backs play behind the defending line. Further back are the two other backs. The three men just behind the line are ready to go lo whichever side tlic' play goes. Tlic plan gives Hires', men Immediately behind the line, where thcere were only two before. Usually tl:c faster of the linemen is the one pullet! back to work with the secondary. !n this way there is a halfback flank-fug each tackie and n loose 1'layer In the middle ready to swing either way with tbc play. Of course, there Ls a short side of the line, caused by pullinj one of fhe linemen back, there being two inen on on side of the center, and three men on the other.
