(By Bob Ankell)
That the Conference championship
was won in the last eight seconds of
the fourth quarter of the final game of
the season merely Aypifies the close-
ness and the sensational quality of
this year's Big Ten race. When .Bob-
by Fletcher booted the pigskin be-
tween the hio goal posts for the
winning score last Saturday he term-
inated one of the most remarkable sea-
sons in western football history.
By this victory over the Buckeyes,
Illinois is established as undisputed
champion of the Conference. It is
equally certain that the losing team
Ieserves second honors, if one is to
rr ly on the percentage of games won
cnd lost as a basis for ranking. Al-
though this is the only equitable way
of Settling the positions in the title
race, there are many who would dis-
pute Ohio's right to second place if
the playing of the various teams at the
end of 'the season were to be taken
as the criterion. Wisconsin and Min-
nesota, it is thought by many, deserve
a higher rating than the percentage
column gives them.
-Badger's Claim Sfrong'
The llsidgers' claim to fame rests
on their defeat of Illinois and the
figh which they pu up against the
Buckeyes. Although they were de-
feated by the Ohioan by one .field
goal in this contest many critics think
that the Wisconsin eleven outplayed
their opponents. Minnesota, on the
other hand, has had the honor of
beating the Badgers. The Gopers,
besides, were defeated by the cham-
pionshipIllinois agregation on an ad-
n3itted fluke. Their other lost gsme
occurred early in the season when
they met Iowa.
Last Games Mix
It is well known that due to Dr.
Wiliams' system of coaching his teams
are slow in getting under way. This
fact accounts for his early season re-
Chicago, although finishing third,
certainly does not deserve a higher
ranking. In fact, the defeat which the
Mtoons suffered at the hands of the
Baders Saturday seems to indicate
that perhaps they ought to be further
down in the standing. Iowa has play-
ed abstrong game all fall and should
nlot be forgotten fn the :anal reckon-
ing. The defeat which the trans-Mis-
sissippi eleven adminstered to Min-
nesota and the close contests with Il-
linois and Chicago are proofs of abil-
ity. a
Other Teams Weak
Michigan and Northwestern are just
about on a par as the game in which
they opposed each other showed. The
other two Big Ten teams never had
a chance in the race. It is interest-
ing to note, however, that the Indiana
\aggregation beat the stroig Syracuse
eleven Saturday, which in turn had
humbled Colgate. The latter defeated
Princeton, wbo sent Yale down to de-
feat and tied Harvard. If the com-
parative score method were dependa-
ble, this would serve to Indicate that
Western football was far superior to
the Eastern brand this year. It is
doubtful, however, if the seaboard
critics would accept this method of
comparison as a valid one.
The results of this year's Big Ten
race were far different from the pre-
dictions made prior to the opening of
the season. It -was thought by many
that the winner of the Oho-Michigar
game would get the Conference title

nonors, the otner, namely Michigan,
came out near the bottom of the heap.
Chicago was thought to be much
stronger than Illinois, and even after
Zuppke's men had defeated the Ma-
roons it was thought that Stagg's pu-
pils would come back strong by win-
ning the remainder of its schedule.
The credit of Illinois' startling re-
covery after the Wisconsin defeat and
her subsequent fine showing must be
attributed almost altogether to the
skill of Coach Zuppke. It was through
his science and hard work that the Ur
bana eleven was developed from crude
material into the 'finest machine in the
As the curtain falls on'this most cu-
rious and exciting season, it is inter-
esting to remember that due to-the ex-
traordinary conditions there was prob-
ably more high grade football played
this year than ever before, but not,
unfortunately, at Michigan.
With the close of the football sea-
son, basketball now occupies the lime-
light in the realm of sports. Coach
E. J. Mather, the new varsity coach,
has stdrted grooming his men in
.earnest. Already, for four weeks,
prdlimninary practice has been going
on in the Waterman gym. In response
to the call for candidates, some 35 or
40 have been showing up regularly for
the tri-weekly workouts.
Light Drill Thus Far
Up to the present time there has
been little' done other than passing.
Coach Mather is insistant that the men
shall have mastered the fundamentals
of throwing the ball before they par-
tiipate in scrimmages. As a result
the coach has put the mnen through
little scrimmage, only the last 15 or
20 minutes being devoted to this work.
Practice has consisted in dividing up
the squad into groups of five and run-
ning them through differentpassing
formations. Various cmbinatons are
being tried and there are a number
of men showing promise. The more
likely looking are Captain Rychener,
Wickham, Pear, Novak, Weiss, Sulli-
van, McPhee, Gevirtz, Williams, Pear-
man, J. Smith, Ruzicka, Rea, Ham-
mond, Bartz, and Miller.
There has been no cut in the squad
as yet and the coach does not want
any of the men to become idiscour-
aged. He says that it is impossible
to find a man out in a week, let alone
one night. He is also anxious to see
more new men out. There are sev-
eral men from the football squad that
are expected to come out. Hender-
son, Dunne, Eades, and Stuart should
put in their appearance sometime this
14 Big Ten Games
/ Hard work is in store for the candi-
dates. Thus far Coach Mather does
not consider that he has worked the
men at all. As soon'* as they round
into physical condition hesaysrthat
he will begin practice in earnest. A
strong Conference schedule has been
prepared. In the Big Ten circuit the
varsity will play 14 games. The
schedule shows two contests each
with Minnesota, Chicago, Illinois, In-
diana, Wisconsin, and Ohio State.
Beside these a number of games have.
been arranged with 'schools outside
of the Western Conference'.
Preliminary games should begin in
the middle of December. Coach Mather

is hopeful of being able to play a
game every other night before start-
.ing out on the Conference schedule.
In the Christmas holidays a'series of
contests is to take place.

Alpha Delta Phi took the measure{
of Theta Chi, 14 to 13, in a hotly con-
tested game Tuesday afternoon on
South Ferry field. The Alpha Delt's
were caused no small amount of wor-
ry due to the excellent work per-
formed by Leader, Theta Chi, quarter.
Leader tore around end and through;
the line in a manner that proved hima
to be of Varsity calibre. Haller, at7
full, and McManis, center, for the los-
ers starred consistently. The work,
of Schetum and Steketee enabled the
Alpha Delt aggregation to emerge vic-
tors when the final whistle blew.
Delta Chi lost a hard game to Phi,
Kappa Sigma when the latter by line
of good line plunging crossed th,
Delta Chi eleven's goal. Anderson and
Rivard displayed the best form ,in the
backfield of the winners, while Cress
and Irvine performed in the stellar'
role on the line. The Delta Chi's put
up a game fight, but there is no doubt
but that they lost to a superior team.
Laurie and Kyser were the linemen
who played .best for the losers, while
Wirt, Edwards and'Meese plunged the
line consistently.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon forfeited to
Sigma Nu when they refused to play
off the tie incurred by the decision of
Referee Usher. ThistIeaves the Sigma
Nu's still in the running for inter-
fraternity football hgnors.
Psi Upsilon will meet the Alphal
Delta Phi footbalb eleven Tuesday in
an endeavor to capture honors in the
semi-finals. The game will be staged
at 3:45 o'clock on South Ferry field..

halt-back from Michigan in 1914, is

been defeating all comers in that part
of the country this year.

Only those men reporting for soc-
cer practice this afternon and to-
morrow afternoon at 3 o'clock will
have a chance to play on the varsity
team in the game which will prob-
ably be played some time this week
with the Ypsilanti Normal team.
There is a chance that the game will
be played on the afternoon of Thanks-
giving day and definite information in
regard to this will be given out at
practice this afternoon.
