501-0 DOESN'T RATE:.
Expert Rated Michigan
Gridders Third in 1901
(EDITOR'S NOTE: 'hi' is the see-
ond in a series of articles on the
first Rose Bowl team.)
By PRES HOLMES
It seems that Casper Whitney
was naming "All-Americans" long
before anyone ever heard of Wal-
ter Camp or Grantland Rice.
The first Michigan gridder to be
lauded by him was William Cun-
ningham who played center on the
1898 squad. But let's look at what
Mr. Whitney said about Mich-
igan's 1901 point-a-minute aggre-
gation-the one that beat Stan-
ford 49-0 in the first Rose Bowl
He found one man on the
Michigan eleven worthy of All-
American rating. That was Neil
Snow, who under the Yost sys-
tem played end on defense and
fullback, on offense.
Whitney also listed the tol> ten
teams. Michigan, which in the
course of the season tallied 501
points while holding their oppon-
ents scoreless, was placed third
in the nation behind Harvard and
Wisconsin, which placed fourth,
was the only other "western"
team mentionetd by Whitney. He
describes the other western teams
as "away back and sitting down."
Another note of interest, prob-
ably to the Western Conference
board on commercialism among
athletes, is stated by Whitney.
"Michigan is more nearly free
from any taint of profession-
alism than any other western
institution, and football as de-
veloped by its eleven deserves a
The amazing total of points
amassed by Michigan seemed to
influence Mr. Whitney very little.
"Michigan and Wisconsin in foot-
ball are this year to the west
as is Harvard to the east, and
between the western teams the
choice is difficult, indeed, though
Michigan has the remarkable total
of 501 points scored, to none
against her." Nice of him to make
such a concession.
He admits that the Wolver-
ines "have a strong, heavy line
and good backfield; and in run-
rvP with the ball and punting
Michigan stands well up toward
the very head of American foot-
Then he counters with, "but in
the handling of the kicks, and in
highly developed team play, they
are quite a bit inferior to the
He goes on to mention the
merits of "western" football.
"Speaking generally for the
west, there is more appreciable
development of football skill
than in the .east. This is partly
because of the alertness of mind
and intolerance of mediocrity
which have served to make the
great west what it is today."
He hands a plum to the staff
of the University when modifying
his above statement. "There is a
real sense of the game, for the
game's sake, among the faculty
mnembers of the leading middle
western universities, who meet an-
nually to better their athletic con-

NEW YORK. Dec. 15 - (I) -j
Ohio State's 7-6 victory over
Northwestern, engineered some
three minutes after the final gun,
was considered the principal od-
dity of the 1947 football season
by coaches, athletic directors and
writers answering an Associated
A fourth down Ohio State for-
ward pass from Northwestern's
seven was blocked and hauled
down by the enemy as the game
apparently ended. The field was
flooded by fans and bands while
the officials tooted for attention.
Northwestern had a 12th man on
the field and the play was called
back for infliction of a five-yard
penalty to the Northwestern 2
from where the Ohio Quarterback
threw a touchdown pass into the
end zone to Jim Clark.
Buried in the early season con-
fusion was a Sept. 27 night game
incident in a Richmond-Washing-
ton and Lee battle.
Brian Bell, the Washington and
Lee fullback, took a kickoff and
ran 94 yards for a score that
eventually won the ball game. As
he raced past his own 40-yardl
stripe with a single blocker in
front of him, two Richmond tac-
klers closed in on him. As they
were about to go after Bell, a
Richmond newspaper photogra-
pher shot off a flash bulb to get
an action pictur'e.
The two Richmond defenders,
apparently blinded by the flash,
went after the blocker, Mike Boy-
da, nailing him to the turf, while'
Bell was left with a clear field.
