We have all heard this expression, "Yes, we lost but thc other team was sure lucky. We made. 14 first downs to their two." Thc only plncc that gaining counts ls nt thc goal line, so we might ns nt well adjust this point rather than too deep out ln thc field. 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 couple of plays nnd, therefore, stopping their march nt the five-yaline. Teams nre often too cnger to do things enrly ln thc game and they expose too much of their importance before it reaps reward. I do not mean to criticise any team ln speaking of certain experiences, and beyond nll means, I would not criticise Tennessee, a team with n reputation nnd record thnt they maintain. At any rate we must be sure that Tennessee's record ;,iil go on unblemished for the.' season of 1929 providing no grout amount of injuring should strike their camp during the cjy.palgn. Tennessee football Pliers should now be proud to say that they have never lost an intercollegiate football contest during their college careers, both freshman and varsity. That record is not held by any other institution at the present date to my knowledge. Now, to get back to our subject, quarterbacks 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, don't try to get a first down with small yardage to go when you should punt. In conference with quarterbacks during their off seasons we try as much as possible to get them to do all the thinking. We tell them very little but ask them thousands of questions. There ls so much to be learned in covering quarterback play that lecturing would be futile. They will learn only by their own thoughts of mental experience. We only try to help out a little by constantly forcing situations to nrlsc which they must try to correct be-f- or they get to their games. We gcnrally make sure they absolutely know the numbers of thc following plays: 1. Strongest running play they may use and first down. 2. Short, sure gainers for one or two nedded yards. 3. Weak side and reverse plays for ovcrshlftlng defenses. 4. Gamble plays, such as double reverses, triple passes, fake punts, etc. 5. Position plays, especially used before punting. 6. Side line plays to get out of bounds for better position. 7. Scoring plays near thc goal line, plays with a punch. 8. Psychology ploys generally used first play of game or first play after thc recovery of one of opponents' fumbles. 9. Trick plays. JO Change In starting signals. 11. Sacrifice plays sacrificing one or two plays for thc success of a third in a scries or succession of plays. Quarterbacks often make the mistake of starting thc signals before his other team mates nrc ready. See to lt they have finished waving to thc girl friend ln the stands and are nil set for business or, otherwise, your energy ls wnsted. By all means, never allow the members of thc team to talk to you; if you do, you are already on the way to the sidelines as a leader of your battalion. Teams should develop the spirit of "every play for a touchdown." This sounds ridiculous because we all know that lt is impossible. However, without thisr- - perfect execution of plays would never be carried out to the letter. Statistics show that in the big games, evenly played, that oftentimes only one or two plays are successfully executed and if in the proper place one play may mean victory. The University of Kentucky against Washington and Lee in 1928 successfully executed only two' successive plays from scrimmage and this brought victory in itself. If every member keeps on trying, sooner or later they may all succeed simultaneously and this spells perfect execution, which, in turn, may mean victory. 71 C f The Clothes Shop ever the most critical in matters of style, are welcome natrons of Mangel's.
