1924 Grid Season Sees Fall
Of Leaders In All Sections

One year ago at this time, the foot-
ball situation in both the East and
the West was a fairly well-defined
affair; Cornell was well on her way
to another season of supremacy over
the schools of the Atlantic seaboard;
Michigan and Illinois were plainly
the leaders of the Big Ten, and Yale
led the "Big Three."
Things are different this year. Cor-
nell has lost two successive games
to opponents of questional ie caliber,
ViWbigan's decisive defeat at the
hands of the Illini last Saturday prac-
tically eliminates the Wolverines, and
the Big Three is a doubtful quan-
The Illinois eleven seems to be the
class of the Conference, and should
win the title without much trouble
if Grange remains uninjured and-
otherwise unhampered. 'Iowa and
Ohio State and Wisconsin and Min-
nesota have tied each other, which
does not tend to clarify the situation.
Chicago has not lost a Conference
game, and the Staggmen are confi-
dent of their ability to stop Grange
when they clash with Illinois Novem-
ber 8. If they can, their- chances of
winning from the Suckers are even,
no better.
Iowa is strong, but the Hawkeyes
do not put up their best all the time.
They play inspired football for one
period, then sink to mediocrity for
the rest of the game, or vice versa.
Th'ey are in-and-outers. Coach Jack
Ryan has a formidable team at Wis-
consin, but they are almost certain
to be beaten. They will be fortunate
to keep Michigan from spoiling their
record Saturday at Ferry field. Iowa
and Chicago will furnish the Confer-
ence opposition for 'the Badgers in
their last two Big Ten contests. The
tie with Minnesota last Saturday
shows the potentialities of the team,
but its real merit will be tested
against Michigan..
The rest of the Conference elevens
are as much as out of the race. They
are good, but not good enough to
cope with Illinois, Chicago, Michigan,
Iowa, and the others.
The Eastern situation is even more
muddled. At present, 10 teams re-I
main in the undefeated class. Harvard
Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, and Syra-
cuse are the best prospects for ulti-
mate glory. Dartmouth and Yale
tied, 14-14 last Saturday, but the

other leaders have not yet clashed.
It is Impossible to Ipick the first of
these teams, as any olie seems to
have ability erough to win ouc if the
breaks are kind.'
California and Stanford are fight-
ing it out in the Far West, while
Notre Dame is probably the leader
in the West, outside the Conference.
The Irish look like the superiors of
any eleven in the Big Ten with the
possible exception of Illinois. Rock-
ne's eleven has an exceptionally stiff
schedule ahead of it. In sheer ability
and speed, the Irish are the equals
of any team in the West and prob-
ably of any in the country, but they
are light,, and the grind of so many
ganes against heavier opponents may
wear them down so that they will
lose to an aggregation far inferior
in everything except physical equip-1

Point eleven who never played foot-

T A Kucharski, who graduated
i from Purdue in 1917, had compiled
the complete records of all the foot-
ball teams in the Conference, 'from
the time they entered competition
through the season of 1923.
The title of the booklet which con-
tains this material is "Big Ten Foot-
ball Records." Every score given wa:
checked from four different sources
before being entered in the publica-
tion, and the result is a complete and
authoritative compilation of the facts
of general interest to fans who follow
Conference football. In cases of doubt
' as to the correct nature of the records
received, the editors looked up the ac-
count of the particular games con-
cerned in the newspapers published at
the time of the contests.
Notre Dame 'has won eight of its
eleven encounters with the United
States Military academy.
