Then grabbing his hat and pass, he dashed off to the game. It seems that all America has its eye on the team of its Alma Mater, and if the team is not doing so well, the coach is asked, " What is wrong? " If the coach would answer truthfully, the answer may be, " We knew more about them than they did about us. We ran our plays at their weak spots, and we spotted their best ground gainers, but their boys were better athletes. They were better blockers, better passers and punters, and better tacklers. They won because they had the best material. " Or the truthful an- swer may be, " They knew a little bit about us, and we knew a little bit about them. The teams were evenly coached and played the same brand of ball. They got the breaks and won. It was a heart breaker. " Or again answering truthfully, he may say, " They outscouted and outsmarted us. They were set to stop our ground gainers, and they sprung a new offense. " So the coaching problem during the six days before a ball game is to outsmart your opponent. On these pages you get ready for the next ball game with Coach Parker. During the first of the week, while the fans are replaying last Saturday ' s game, Coach Parker, from the dope he has on his next op- ponent, sets an offense and defense with which he plans to win. The squad is drilled in this style of play and scrimmaged for condition. Near the end of the week, the fans turn their interest on the Saturday game, and with practice running smoothly, Coach Parker turns aside to talk matters over with them, by press and radio. Saturday is the ball game. Sweet are the fruits of victory and bitter the herbs of defeat.

Faced with the problem of replacing six regulars in the line, and two regulars in the backfield, Coaches Parker, Smith, and Cobb gave careful consideration to about forty candidates who came out for the team. Only eleven of these forty men were lettermen, six were squadmen, and twenty-six were sophomores coming up from the freshman team. Practice was held twice daily, and scrimmages were begun as soon as the condition of the boys would permit. In the process of selecting a starting line-up, the work- outs became tougher and tougher, until only the pure in heart, the boys who like rough contact could stand the grind. Before the opening game the list of condidates for the team dropped sharply. With the season at hand Coach Parker prophesied, " Our team this year will be like a rookie baseball pitcher. A rookie pitcher will go out one day and set a good batting order down for nine innings, and the next time he faces it, he may be sent to the showers in the first inning. One day he had what it takes. The other day he didn ' t. This year we have a rookie ball club that will make a lot of mistakes. If they make many of them in any one game they are bound to lose. Sometimes at a critical minute only one is enough to lose the game. But these first 1. Weenie Bynum, back. 10. Claude Smith, guard. 17. Joe Steeples, guard. 2. Dub Partin, tackle. 11.
