Athletic Board Elects Football Over
seer for 1907.
W C. Cole. Ex-Michlaan and Virqlnla,
Secures Position as Successor to
Coach Arfos P. Foster.
Board yesteYday morning, Mr. W. C
Colo, was chosen coao'i,f or the Nebras
katoo.tball team of 1907. So far as
prestige and previous, record ;san de
termine such "a matter,, this aspires the
fact that Nebraska vrlll have a first
class football coach next fall.
Cole, better known as "King Cole,"
-Is one of the most promising" of the
yoTing coaches who, after having made
a national reputation on. the gridiron
themselves under the tutelage of the
"evervictorlous Yost," have undor
taken to follow In his footsteps atid
disestablishing what mlgut bo called
theYbst school of football. Ho was
star tackle- on Michigan's champion
team, of lUO'J and was choice for the
all-Western, aggregation by the lead
ing critics or- tno country.
In Yost's style of game, tackle Is
perhaps the, most Important position
on theteam, for Yost's offense, es
. peclally under the old rules, largely
confers nround the work of the tackles'.
Cole was particularly fitted for this
-style of game, "having playedboth end
and half-back at Marietta College be
fore comingb Michigan, and his ex
pSrIenco there as both captain and
coach, gave him unusual knowledge of
the gum'o. During tho first part of the
season Yost used him more or loss at
end ""and In tho backdeld, but lie soon
jmtjilin aMackle and kept him there.
' Cole has also played 'varBlty base
ball, holding down centerflold and
sometimes going Into the box on the
Michigan learn In the spring of 1904.
Colo was no longer eligible for foot-
ball after 1903 and In 1904 ho assisted
Yost and coached Marietta College.
In 1905 he was chosen as head coach
at the University of Virginia. Hero
Cole showed that ho had ability not
only as a player- and an Instructor In
the rudiments of. the game, but that
he had the knnck of handling a large
squad of men and of evolving team
work and a mastery of the strategy of
tho gathe. He was considered an emi
nent success and was chosen to again
till the position for 190G.
Last fall Virginia had one of the
most successful teams it has turned
out' for years. Perhaps It's most note
worthy achievement was holding tho
.strong Carlisle team, which had de
feated Minnesota and given the lead
ers In the east a hard rub, to a virtual
tie; 18-17 tho Indians winning only
by a goal kicked from touchdown.
With such a man to supervise the
general coaching policy and to give
, especial attention to' the lino, and with
' an able assistant to coach the backs
In the fine points of backfleld pjay,
, Nebraska should have a coaching tie-
partment which leaves nothing to bo
desired. With the coaching thus'takon
caive of and with the, almost unprece
dented amount of veteraif material in
sight, prospects certainly point to an
ever-victorious". Cornlnisker team
