One of the reasons a ~xvancd fo
this is that hie ply is_ oo hsrid to
see while a back who ca) circle the
end, in full +,view of everybody, con-
=-cqtently rest ives the prise for the
y ^ d s gained. But during this time
the lineOxip aybe cleaning out the
Sath for the 'all carrier with little
or no credit..Sport writers are sit-
tingt way tip in ;te stands, and even
those that use, glasses, frequently
miss the in tricao:es of lineplay, be-
ca utse it is almnosi impossible to keep
one', eves ol th,,a ball.
Another rca ' ri that the spot
writers write what', her readers want
to read. Peole w ,,ch the ball car-
icr and want to re\ d about hie.
Of all the linemen the, gards re-
cive ithe least p ibi\ tiy. The end
c,,n tie sesen esiy. 'fli' center's work
can be jurdged fairly ''accurately on
defense as far as passi g the ball is
oeriefned. Sometimes the tackles
arle asily discernible. But the
guards, in the iddle of tlte pileups,
in the center of the plyx and hard
going, seldom are visible.
But ''arry Kipke, is going to
change all of that with 1',is "rump
wheel"1 offene He has fo~nd .a wa
to draw attention to the lon-deserv-
ing guards although they 'still will
be doing the same work.
in, modern six-man-line football,
a, team's defensive strength rests
largely upon the tiards. There is .a
wide expiarse from tackle to tacklei
that they must fill And itis at that
samhe expanse of terrtory 'that the
opposition can throw their full of-
fenisive strength.
A guard's duties do not stop there.
Their blocking, is of primImport-,
nrrc to the running attack of ateam.
They try to snap out of the .lin,
whir around end, and bwl over the
opposition If they do, .the halfbak
rims along for a nice gain and re-
ceives the plaudits of the °erowd. if=
t hey don't, the back sarestZO'e and
Ihle attack tails.
Michigan, with Harry l$ewman,
had a much-feared passing attack,t
but nowk without him, the running
game must be developed. To this
end is attributed the new phase of
Mipke's attack.
The "rump wheel" lineup of theI
f uards simply means that instead ofa
facing the opposition, they will be
facing their own backfield. When
the ball is snapped they will be
turned around and can get out to]
block more quickly than if they had
to reverse their position first.
This means that they have a bet-
ter chance of bowling over the ends1
who have not had time to size ups
the situation before the quick block.
Usually when the ball is snpped the
ends cross the line of scrimmage two
or three steps, wait, size tup the sit-
uation, and get set for what they
expect to happen. Now with the fly-
ing start they'll be hit before they've
had time to do all of ths.
Kipke hopes that this will give his
running attack the blocking that it
must have to be successfl. He also
points out that the play of the
guards is brought out into the open
and proper attention will be given
them for their hard work.
The public has an advantage over
a sport writer as they have no re-
rsponsibilty for the game and can
watch an individual in several sue

cessive plays. A person can learn l
more football by watching a' guard
all afternoon than they can by;
