If the Illini ran pick up where 1 they lest off, things could very well go their way in 1960.! They play their first three games at home against Indiana, West Virginia and Ohio State, respectively, before hitting the road against Minnesota. Although the Big 10 has voted against renewal of; the Rose Bowl pact with the West Coast schools, any; of the conference teams may be chosen on an individual j basis. And, that does not necessarily mean the league champion. ! In the pro ranks the Chicago Bears are picked to' dethrone the Baltimore Colts in the Western Division! with the Cleveland Browns winning the Eastern marbles. ! The Bears, says Street and Smith, are a solid team, | balanced between seasoned age and sprightly youth. i The choice of the Bears is based on the assumption' that they will not be so silly as to repeat their cardinal j sin of 1959—losing four of their first five games. Also, j that Willie Galimore will snap out of the slump that; found him contributing only 199 yards during the entire season. The two previous seasons, Willie had 1,157 yards. The Bears won their last seven games in 1959. j In the Eastern Division the St. Louis Cardinals! have been relegated to the No. 5 spot behind the} Browns, Philadelphia Eagles. New York Giants, andj Pittsburgh Steelers. j Fumbles plagued the Cards last year—they had 48 i —and if they can correct this disease, they could well move up in the- standings.
