Championships. Bill Mallory,t
who replaced Schembechler, led
his team through a perfect 11-0
season last year that won him
the head spot at Colorado.
The secret to Miami's suc-
cess can be traced back to 1924
when Athletic Director George
Rider, in an effort to enlarge
the athletic program at Miami,
brought in Chet Pittser from
Illinois to coach football, and
with his help introduced some
of the first coaching classes in
Jay Colville, athletic trainer
at Miami since 1924 and now
retired, has seen the coaching
tradition at Miami from its very
beginning. The innovation "rais-
ed a few eyebrows" Colville
states, admitting that "Not
much was known even about
training in those days."
Another man attributed for
making Miami's "Cradle of
Coa ch es" tradition and
strengthening it, was Sid
Gillman. Referred to by Colo-
rado's Mallory as "A very fine
football coach and a man
ahead of his time," Gillman
began coaching at Miami in
1944 and helped rebuild an
athletic program that had
fallen into disrepair:

other reason why Miami men

"We had the opportunity to see Miami has built a tradition

An example of the perpetu-
ity of the tradition can be
seen on the sidelines this
weekend at the Michigan-
Colorado game. Not only are
both coaches Miami grads but
no less than five assistants

John Pont sums up the attitude
nurtured at "The Cradle of
Coaches": "You have to show
a professional attitude. This is
something that is tradition. It is
built in and carries over from
one class to another. Then
there is this idea of success
breeding success and you hate
to be the first coach to lose if
you come from Miami. This is
a tradition in itself."

The Daily Libels practiced yesterday in preparation fort
Saturday's game with Madame Erika's girls at Fourth Avenue
Stadium. Coach "Fielding H. Feldman" sent his team through
extensive drills as the Libels practiced behind closed doors. "I
don't want any of those reporters or spys from the jealous
athletic department snooping around and stealing our plays,":
said Feldman in a terse statement to the throngs of scribes
waiting behind the barbed wire.
One member of the Libels machine, who wishes to remain
anonymous, was reached at his home by the press. After
accepting statements swearing their commitment to secrecy
the press received his impressions of the first workout.
"Feldman is vicious. The calisthenics weren't bad, but that
speech at halftime!?! No wonder the Libels are so good, they're
taking out their utter frustrations on the opponents," cried the
lanky junior quarterback from New York.
One thing you should do is get those gridde pickings into
the Daily by midnight Friday for the Pizza Bob pizza.
Last week's illustrious winners were the team of Dean
Smith and Tom Behm of the Michigan training room.
