OSU, Gophers, Badgers, Big Tc n Offense Leaders

By DON LINDMAN
Ohio State, Minnesota, and Wis-
consin hold a monopoly on the first
three positions both offensively and
defensively of the Western Con-
ference weekly football statistics.
Wisconsinl holds the defensive
lead; with Minnesota rated second
and Ohio State- ranked third by
the Big Ten office. Offensively, the
positions are just the reverse, with
Ohio State holding down the top
spot. Although tied for second
place with the Gophers and the
Badgers in the league standings,
Michigan only managed to place
fifth on defense and a lowly
ninth -on offense. Two Wolverines,
end Ron Kramer and halfback Dan
Cline, were among the individual
leaders, however.
Wisconsin's pass defense has
been the worst in the conference,
allowing 146 yards per game, but
the Badger line has been specta-
cular, limiting Big Ten opponents
to only 51.5 yards per contest.
Minnesota, which faces Michigan
on Saturday, has averaged an awe-
inspiring total of 371.5 yards per
game in its two Big Ten contests.

With Dave Legget t doing most of
the throwing, Ohio State boasts the
best pass comple tion mark, - a
sparkling .548 record. Wisconsin,
with .533; and Puirdue, holding a
.522 mark, have al so been stand-
outs in the Big Ten pass depart-
ment.
In individual stati &tics the story
is much the same, with Buckeye,
Badger, and Gopher stars domina-
ting the offensive departments. Ken
Yackel, Minnesota's. reserve full-
back who ran wild s gainst Illinois,
leads the Big Ten backs with a
rushing average of :8.9 yards per
carry. Northwesterr 's Jim Tro-
glio ranks second wit an 8.0 aver-
age, and he is fol lowed by two
more Gophers, Bo' b McNamara,
with a 7.6 mark, ar i John Baum-
gartner, averaging 7.2 yards.
Among the passelas, sophomore
sensation Lenny Dawpson, of Pur-
due, has completed nearly 63% -df
his passes to lead t he conference.
In second spot is Leggett, with a
58% mark, followed by John Mat-
sock, of Michigan St kte, with 56%,
and Badger quarterlack John Mil-
ler, with a 55% record.
Miller and Leggett will face each

BOB McNAMARA
... galloping gopher

The vicious Gopher running attack
has averaged 338 yards per game,
nearly 100 yards more than second-
place Ohio State.

Football Scene Coming to Rapid Ending

other next weekend in a crucial
contest at Couumbus, where the
OSU field general will have an op-
portunity to display his tossing tal-
ents against the last-place Badger
pass defense.
Michigan's main claim to fame
statistic-wise lies mainly in its
defense. Kramer is leading the
conference with a 43-yard punting
average. Coupled with Jim Mad-
dock's fourth-place mark of 37.6
yards, Kramer's boots have lifted
the Wolverines into second place in
the punting department with a
team average of 39.9 yards per
kick. Only Illinois boasts a bet-
ter mark.
Dan Cline is the only other Maize-
and-Blue gridder to rate among
the Big Ten leaders. The veteran
Wings Will
The Detroit. Red Wings
moved into first place in the
National Hockey League last
night by beating the Boston
Bruins, 5-3, as defenseman Len
"Red" Kelly scored a record-
breaking three goals. Montreal,
the former leader, was dumped
by Toronto, 3-1.
halfback has returned three' kick-
offs for an average of 23 yards
per carry, the top figure in that
department.
Pass Defense
The Maize-and-Blue pass defense
has been exceptional, as opponents
have peppered the Wolverine se-
conlary with pigskins to little
avail. No Western Conference
squad has seen more passes toss-
ed against it in Big Ten games this
year, but the Michigan defense has
limited its opponents to an aver-
age of only 46.5 yards per game
via the air-ways to place third in
the conference.
The Michigan pass defense has
allowed less than 30% of the pass-
es attempted against it to be com-
pleted, ranking second in the con-
ference in this respect.
Statistically, the Wolverine of-
fense has been correspondingly
poor, however, being ranked only
a step higher than the futile efforts
of last-place Illinois. The Michi-
gan offense has average only 2.6
yards per play, with most of the
total yardage coming through the
running attack. Averaging less
than seven pass attempts per
game, the Wolverines have only
completed 31% for a meager aver-
age of 27.5 yards per contest..

} ~ By SOL ROSEN
The king is dead! Long live the
new champions.
After ruling the professional foot-
ball scene for eight long years, the
Cleveland Browns dynasty has
come to an end, and new contend-
ers for their vacated throne will
have to be found.
Before examining the reason for
their decline, let's look at their
overall eight year record.
The Cleveland Browns made their
initial appearance in 1946, in the
now defunct All-American Confer-
ence, and wound up wit4 a record
of 12-2 in regular season play.
They also copped the champion-
ship game from the New York
Yankees.
Three More Titles
In the following three succeed-
ing seasons, the Browns also cap-
tured the league championship.
This, however, did not silence their
critics, who maintained that, since
the Browns played mediocre com-
petition, they could not be rated
with the great teams of-profession-
al football history.
The All-American Conference
merged with the National Football
League late in 1949, and the
} Browns, who had compiled a phen-
ominal .870 winning percentage,
in their old league, now had the
opportunity to play against the
best clubs in the rival circuit.
In their first season in the NFL,
the Browns captured their division
championship by defeating the New
York Giants in a playoff and then

took the measure of the Los An-
geles Rams in the championship
game.
By virtue of being the best team
in their division, the Browns play-
ed in the championship games of
the following three seasons, but
came out second best on each oc-
casion, losing twice to the Detroit
Lions, and once to the Los Angeles

Rams.

On Way Down

After eight winning campaigns,
the Browns are now on the down-
grade. This was first evidenced in
their lack-luster play in pre-sea-
son exhibition games, and their
poor showing in the games that
they lost to the Philadelphia Eag-
les, and to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The major factors in their de-
cline have been the departure of
key players to Canadian football
and retirement, and the failure of
outstanding freshman prospects to
live up to their promise.
When Paul Brown, coach of the
Browns, formed his team in 1946,
he had a nucleus of six players who
have been responsible for the
team's success. These six play-
ers are Otto Graham, one of the
slickest quarterbacks in the game,
Marion Motley, the human counter-
part of a bulldozer at fullback, Mac
Speedie and Dante Lavelli, glue-
fingered ends, Lou Groza, football's
top place kicker, and Horace Gil-
lom, the best punter in the league.
Unique Offense
With these players, Brown was
able to set up a unique offensive
pattern. Graham would pass to
either Speedie or Lavelli, who were
equally adept at breaking into the
opponent's secondary. If oppos-
ing linemen rushed Graham, the
quarterback would spring Motley
on a trap play up the aiddle which
was usually good for several yards.
When the Browns offense would
bog down, Lou Groza would come
in to boot a field goal from any
distance inside fifty yards.
As s e a s o n s progressed, the
Browns picked up outstanding per-
sonnel via the college draft and
through trades. These men play-
ed a few seasons and sere vital
cogs in the championship drives.
When they departed, Brown replac-
ed them with other outstanding
players, and these new players, to-
gether with the nucleus of six,

kept the championship. machine in-
tact.
The Browns were dealt a blow
last season, when IAac Speedie
jumped to Canada. however, the
ax fell this season, when Marion
Motley, the great runL'r and block-
er, decided to .call itt quits. His
understudy, Harry .JI'gade, also
quit due to business cammitments.
The Browns at pre: ernt have re-
gistered a mediocre one win and
two lost record. Th;, were out-
played by the powerful Philadel-
phia Eagles, but bouric ed back to
defeat the Chicago Cards. This
past week they were trampled by
the Pittsburgh Steelers by the score
of 55-27. As the seasons progresses,
they will encounter stronger teams,
such as the Detroit Lions. The
rookies will have to d Wsplay more
ability if the Browns vire to finish
with a respectable recoxd this sea-
son.
