Coach of First Husker Championship
Football Team Recalls Experiences
Of Times When Sport Was in Infancy
Reminiscing about the days
football team in 1893 and 18114. Frank Crawford, mentor of
the first Cornhusker championship' grid eleven Tuesday aft
ernoon recalled some of his experiences as head of Jhe pigskin
sport when it was in its infancy not only at Nebraska but at
other schools as well.
A lawyer now living in Nice,
France. Mr. Crawford is back in
the United States visiting relatives
in Omaha, his former home. Tues
day noon he was a guest of the
Nebraska coaching staff at a
luncheon at the University club,
where he renewed his friendship
with Col. W. H. Oury, who played
on his '93 and 94 teams, Arthur J.
Weaver, business manager of his
94 outfit, and others. The N club
honored him in the evening at a
banquet in the ocliseum.
Altho Crawford had received his
A. B. at Yale and his law degree
from Michigan, where he was a
football star and captain of the
baseball team, he registered as a
student when he took up the coach
ing reins, at Nebraska and alter
nated at half and quarter during
the two years of his coaching ten
ure here.
Those were the days when eligi
bility rules were practically un
known, and so Crawford took his
turn at carrying the ball for his
own team. In fact, it was an ac
cepted practice in the nineties for
coaches to play against each other
when their teams met. When asked
how it was possible for coaches to
play, Crawford smiled.
"Football was so rough then
that frequently parents would not
permit t.heir sons to play, which
made it hard to secure men to com
plete an eleven. So the coaches
were forced to play now and then
because of a shortage of mate
rial," he explained.

dents occurring while he was head
of Nebraska football destines,
Crawford, who is a jovial and a

Hardage, New Sooner Coach, Plans
Start Spring Work Soon Training
Oklahomans in Dixie Grid Styles
Lewie Hardage. builder of the great Ynnderbilt bnckficlds
the past len years ami now lh new University of Oklahoma
head football coach, brieves that the fastest football in the na
tion is now played in 'he South and asserts that the system he
will introduce at Sooncrland will be a combination of the "Wal
lace Wade and Vaiidcrbill offenses with a little Tennessee and
Tulane stuff thrown in just to give O'
the whole a good strong Dixie
"We'll u.e a modified punt
formation UDtil we get down close
to the goal line, where we'll hlft
to a more compact formation," ex
plains Hardage. "I like this forma
tion because it permits a diversi
fied attack to all points, prevents
the enemy defense from overshift
ing, and keeps the opponents'
safety driven back because of its
threat of a quick kick or pass. Its
success depends upon perfect tim
ing of plays and skillful use of the
Will Name Line Coach.
Coach Hardage will be permitted
to name his own assistant, who
will act as line coach and will be
thoroughly schooled and exper
ienced in Hardage's system. In fact
the new Sooner coach already has
such a man in mind and if the
Oklahoma athletic council is able
to land him within the next two or
three days, the belated Sooner
spring football practice will start
Monday, after Coach Hardage has
first bad two or three days to ex
plain his system to Lawrence
"Jap" Haskell, freshmen coach,
and Hugh McDermott, assistant
coach and scout.
v "Our spring practice will be
chiefly devoted to blocking and
tackling with a great deal of at
tention being paid toward teaching
the forwards the rudiments of cor
rect offensive line play," an
nounced Hardage.

thoroly likeable individual, told of
the intense foorball rivalry De
tween Nebraska and Kansas,
which resulted in 1894 in the Husk
ers" initial championship in the
Missouri Valley league.
Captained by George H. Dern,
now governor of Utah, the Husk
ers took it on the nose in their
first game of the 1894 season
against Doane, the Crete school at
that time boasting a powerful
crew of giants. The score was 12
to 0. Crawford's boys eked out a
12 to 6 win in the big test against
Kansas and then proceeded to
smother the rest of their opponents
under big scores. Since the Mis
souri Valley championship went to
the school piling up the greatest
number of points, Nebraska went
into the Iowa U game determined
to run uo a big score and win the
title. The first half found neither
team making much headway, but
the Cofnhuskers ran amuck in the
last half to win 36 to 0.
Enthusiastic over the univer
sity's present athletic facilities,
Crawford could not help but com
pare Memorial stadium and the
equipment with which he had to
work. The football field when he
was here, was located south of the
stadium, about where the A. M.
building now stands. There were
no bleachers, the players had lit
tle equipment, and there was no
talk of over emphasis or commer
cialization. The onetime Scarlet
mentor was especially interested in
the training room and indoor and
outdoor track now used by Husker
cinder men.
"You've come a long way since
then," he concluded.

The new coach is a native Ala

all sorts, especially hunting and
fishing, and 'owns a sizable quail
