It will be the end of an all-too-short but revealing 18 days of spring grid drills and the coaches are as anxious as are the' fans to see the end result of the split-T conversion.

A third backfield contingent is made up of Tommy Lockhart, Buddy Benson, Rogers Overbey and soph Jerry Ferguson. At least three sophomores are currently running second best for line positions—tackle John Boles and guards Stuart Perry and Greg Pinkston.
