Coach Johnson
Gives a Pep Talk
What can a former President do?c
Maybe he can hover over his library or polish up his memoirs,E
but for a vigorous man who just stepped down from the most
testing job on earth few occupations provide much challenge.
When President Johnson leaves the White House in '68 or '72,
it is difficult to envision him taking up the simple life of a rancheri
or the petty problems of a TV station owner.
To my mind there is but one vocation that might really suit f
President Johnson's colossal energy and gentle armtwisting-
college football coaching.
When President Johnson returns to San Marcos State after1
he hangs up his Secret Service men for good we can see him twanging
something like this to his boys before the big game.
"Now you young men, the flower of our youth, I wish I didn't]
have to send you out there to tackle and block other fine young
men who just happen to be misdirected, and if possible we canj
reason this thing out at the fifty yard line before the game starts.
But if they refuse to be reasonable and it appears they might win1
the ballgame, I want you young men to run to the locker room when
the aeroplane with the napalm circles over the stadium.1
"Now you fine young men know what you're going out there
for, I'm sure. You may think this one game doesn't mean that
much in itself, but let me tell you something. If we lose here
just where do ya think we'll be in the national rankings. And
I think you know what the national polls mean.
"Now you fine young men know what fighting for your alma
mother means. You boys will be battling for a way of life, the single
wing. We want no flankers, no split T, no slots, just good old
fashioned single wing football. Now if any of you believe some of
these new fangled formations have something you just better drop
those thoughts here and now, or quit the team. If you think about
passing when you're running up the middle you fall.
You Must Have Truth
"Now maybe some of you fine young men think you know how
to play the game better than me: Well, that's simply impossible. You
just don't have the necessary information. Why I have assistant
coaches, and all they do all day is study the opposition's tactics.
Some of them have been watching the same films for twelve years.
And you can see how far they've gotten us in this great game we
all love.
"And I'll tell you something else about my coaching staff.
There's no dissension. If someone doesn't fit .into the single
wing philosophy they don't stick around and gripe. No sir, they
quit, or I fire them. We get only one kind of information from
our staff-the truth.
"Now you fine young men, this coaching business isn't all that
easy. You've always got some kooks who second guess and burn you
in effigy. Not that I care, but it makes us look divided, and if
there's anything that hurts a single wing it's appearing split. We
have reason to believe that the leaders of these effigy movements
not only burn in hell, but are inspired by our enemy. Some say
they don't even believe in football.
"Well, young flowers of our youth, you go out and hold that
line and fight, fight, fight, go, go, go."
"But, Coach Johnson," shouts one of the players from the
back of the locker room, "we might get killed out there."
"Yes, but at least you'll know why."

team that exploded in the persons
of Jim Grabowski and his fellow
backfield workhorses.
Jack Mollenkopf, head coach at
Purdue, commented, in somewhat
of an understatement, "Illinois has
progressed tremendously this year.
They'll make it miserable for any
future opponent."
After losing three of their initial
four games, the Illini have bounced
back with three consecutive wins.
Grabo and Friends
The credit for the rejuvenation
must go mainly to Grabowski and_
his rushing helpers. Grabo, who
has now eclipsed both Jimmy
Brown's and Red Grange's career
rushing records with his mark of
2,275 yards over three years,
spearheads the charge. (Brown
had 2,223 and Grange 2,071).
"But the ability of the other
backs is what makes the Illinois
offense work," emphasized Fitz-
