Pass As Adjunct Ohio State and Army this fall were the last to prove thai a running game will work without passing. The solid team employs the pass as nothing more than an ad junct. When the pros are playing for keeps and a championship, you'll note that the number of passes is greatly reduce:'. Quarterbacks then set them up with the running game and throw well. The money players have time to practice the cxeculion of pass palterns. College coaches can't afford to give passing anywhere near that much time. Thai's Ihe principal reason college coaches don't but another one /-J|_! is thai they don't want 'heir! young men softened up by being presented with too much cheap yardage.
