Basket Ball Informal
Nebr. vs. Muscatine
Through tho medium of tho Chicago
Intor-Ocoan, Coach Yost takes occa
sion to discuss of tho inferior show
ing made by tho west in .football dur
ing the past two seasons. His re
marks, in part, follow:
"Results of tho intersoctlonal games
of 1907 leave to tho western man no
ground for a claim that the . grade of
football played by tho leading teams
In his Bcction of the country was
qual to that oT tho oost teams of the
oust. Carlisle defeated Minnesota 12
to 10, and Pennsylvania lowered Mich
igan's colors 6 to 0. Truo, tho margin
of superiority was so small that the
supporters of tho westorn game have
a right to argue Michigan and Min
nesota as Btrong as Harvard, Weat
Point, Cornell and Princdton. Yet,
in general terms, eastern superiority
cannot be questioned.
"Tho stylo of play In the two sec
tions, offensive and defensive, was
very similar. In the west, na in the
east, the different colleges had dif-
ferent ideas as to the best plan of
attack. Aa a whole, I believe the
"weatrTCliea more on tho open game
to gain .ground.
"It is an undeniable fact that west
ern football has of late been far bo
low its standard of 1001-1905.
"During the season just ended, Min-'
nesota scored but two touchdowns
one of them against Carlisle yet,
from 1901 to 1905 Minnesota averaged
40 points to tho game.
' "Michigan in 1901 defeated Carlisle,
coached by Mr. Warner, 22 to 0 in two
twenty-minute halves. From 1901 to
1905 Michigan rolled up an average
of 50 points every time her team toolc
tho field. She scored 86 points against
Ohio State, 107 against Iowa -State,'
130 against West Virginia, 128 against
Buffalo, and 119 against Michigan
"Yet fof the past two years Mich
lgan has been forced 'to extend her-
self to the very limit to win from
this same class of elevens.
"So radical a reveres! of form must
indicate the existence of a cause,
and that cause is familiar to every
western football enthusiast It arises
from the restrictions of tho Western
Conference. r '
"In 1905 a year in advance "of the
adoption of the freshman rule In the
east western schools barred fresh
men from all 'varsity teams. At The
same time the Conference abolished
