I firmly believe that ln our game
with Tennessee this past season we
would have lost had they not run
over one of our tackles with such
ease and consistency on one constant march, thus giving us ample
time to send ln n new tackle and
adjust his position differently for ,a

Now, to get back to our subject,
should try by nll
menns to gain fouur or five yards on
first down. If a quartcrback can
call a play that will net this amount
on first down, it will relieve him of
a great deal of strategical worry,
put him ahead, and let him take a
few more chances in securing the
remainder of yardages to net another flrst down again. Remember,
