Coach 'Ittle Bolsters Weak Spots

TWO PLAVERS INJURED

MADISON, WIS., Nov. 3.-No pains
are being spared by the Wisconsin
coaching staff this week in preparing
the Badgers for their game with
The twentieth, century jinx which
has hung over Badger grid teams in
their contests with Michigan is being
forgotten, and the reassuring fact that
it is possible to defeat the Woiverines
is driving Coach Little's men on to
develope a winning attack.
That Michigan was defeated by the
Navy last week has lowered rather
than raised hopes for a victory. All
the "cockiness" that the mighty Wol-
verines may have had has gone, and it
i"a certainty that "Hurry-up" Yost
will have his men on a fighting edge.
The Minnesota game, which was a
'thriller, pointed out several Badger
weaknesses. The most pointed wasI
tire woefully weak offense which was
thought, prior to the game, to be great
and mighty. Not a first down, the first
time in Cardinal football history, was
registered against the giant North-
nen, and consequently Coach Little
'ill devote much time toward develop-
ing this department.
Tom Lieb, head coach of the Wis-
conrin line men, will devote a large
part of the practice sessions towards
moulding the Cardinals into a faster
chiarging aggregation. Saturday, 'oi
the whole the Wisconsin forward wall'
looked miserable, being torn to shreds
by the mighty Joesting. Only on a
couple of occasions when the Wiscon-
sin goal was sorely threatened did the
line show any real defensive power.
And at no time in the game did it,
show any offensive might.I
.Two of the most regular of the Wis-
cousin regulars are out, and may not
be in fit condition for Saturday's
game. Jeff Burrus, the veteran right
end, who played the greatest game in
his career last week and showed him-
self to be probably ore of the best de-
fensive wingmen in the country, went
out on Nydahi's *-great run on being
blocked and having a ligament torn in
hiis leg. "Butch" Leitl, who scored a
31-yard placekick is out with a broken
nose and it is doubtful if he will play.'
Two new guards Schuette, a sopho-
more, and Cole, a junior, distinguished
themselves Saturday, Both were sub-
stitutes, but it was mainly through
their great diagnosing of Minnesota
plays that the Gophers were stopped
as consistently in the second half as

Had Completed More Than 21 Yeas
As A Member Or Manager Of
Tiger Bkehall Teams
MORIARITY TO SUCCEED
After more than 21 years associa-
tion with the Detroit baseball club,
serving in the capacity of both player
and manager, Tyrus Cobb yesterday
tendered his resignation to Frank
Navin, president of the club.
For the past six years Cobb has
been the playing manager of the De-f
troit team, and he is to be succeeded
by George Moriarity, veteran Amer-
ican league umpire, and formerly a
star third baseman for the Detroit;
Tigers. He will have as an assistant
Lefty Leilield, at one time a star ma-
Jor league pitcher ,who has spent the
last few years acting as assistant to
Lee Pohi, f'itrst with the St. Louis
Browns, and later with the Boston
Cobb, after returning to Detroit for1
one day after his hunting trip, left
his resignation with Navin and then
departed for his home in Georgia.
Thus far, he has made no statement
concerning his future activities, and [
it is generally agreed by his friends
that he will remain out of baseball
for at least one year if not permanent-
ly. Cobb has many business inter-
ests ,and these played an important
part in determining his resignation.
Dan Howley, formerly Cobb's as-
sistant, was the first man to be
sought to fill Cobb's vacancy but
Howley was unable to accept the con-
Cobb's only explanation for his quit-
ting the team was that he had' been
on duty long enough in that particular
line and felt that he needed a rest.
However, it is thought that the con-
stant criticisn of his management be-
cause of his inability to produce a
"pennant winner brought about the de-
