925 Football Season
Record of Brilliant Triumphs
(By WARREN A. PRICE)
One of the most glorious chapters of the University of Kentucky's football history was written Inst fall as a result of the
successes and achievements of the Wildcat grid team, which,
beginning the season on September 2G with a notable triumph
over Maryville and ending with a spectacular win over Tennessee on Turkey day, swept through nine battles, winning six
and losing three, including victory over Centre for the first time
in eight years.
6t Kentucky's record; the 25 to 0 dc-- l
lent at the hands of the Washington
and Lee Gcnernls. The Vireinlnns ox
hibited such a varied assortment of
passes that it made the Wildcats
groggy. Bullet-lik- e
shots mined to all
quarters of the field, always ending
their flight by settling into the arms
of a waiting General. Kentucky, playing her worst game of the year, wns
afflicted with a condition from, which
rtll teams suffer when they nttempt to
play football on one of their off days.
.10 Wildcats Kepnrt
In the opening days of September,
30 Wildcats reported to Coach Murphy. Immediately they donned the
moleskins and started their daily practice sessions, which lasted throughout
the season. Everything pertaining to
football functioned in perfect harmony, and when the student body returned on September 20 they were
amazed to find a trained and well organized squad of Blue and White football players going through their daily
grind on Stoll Field.
Although the spirits of the uni- versity were somewhat dampened by the loss of the great Sanders, captain of the 1924 eleven,
Sauer, and Turner Gregg, they
rose to normality when they saw
who was to take their places, the
members of the preceding year's
freshmen aggregation, Jenkins,
Phipps, Mohney, Moloney, Ross,
Ellis, Wert, Pence, Hickcrson,
Edwards, Kirkcndall, nnd Schultc.
Of the veterans, Captain Kirwan,
ery, Tracy, Hughes, Smith, Dellnvcn,
Evans, Harbold nnd Vossmeyer were
back in their original positions, some
of them prepared to mnkc their Inst
year on the varsity contribute to n
most successful season.
On September 20, Mnryville College,
from the mountains of Tennessee, sent
their pigskin performers into the Blue
Grass to help inaugurate Kentucky's
football season. Stoll Feld wns the
scene of the engagement nnd nlso the
scene of some very ragged playing on
the part of both teams, which is usually the procedure of opening games.
The first half of the contest was
hotly contested, neither side gaining a decided advantage over the
other one. Toward the latter
part of the first half Kentucky
kicked in. her territory and was
blocked by a Maryville man, who
picked the ball up and ran for a
touchdown, the only points they
scored during the entire game. In
the second half, the Wildcats got
busy and rolled two touchdown

1.1 to 7.
October 3, Coach Murphy's charges,
nccompnnled by 1,200 rooters, entered
Chicago to piny their

The University of Chicago's team, un-dthe nble conchlng of Alonzo Stagg,
met the Wildcnls on Stngg Held in the
presence of the largo delegation of
Kentucky supporters and
mately 30,000 other spectators, which
is the Inrgcst crowd that a Kentucky
team hns ever performed before.
Five Ynrds McCnrty, the most
famed of Chicago's
wns downed on every attempt he
made to carry the ball but a lesser Maroon satellite, Rouse, exhibited the only real offensive play
of the game, scoring the only
touchdown, thereby aiding to beat
Kentucky by a small score of 5)
