Head Man Don Faurot will have
to pardon Smitty's yen for a 12,

It's just his Canadian back
ground, you see. Smith returns
to the Mizzou staff this month
fresh from a one-year hitch as
head coach of the Saskatchewan
Rough Riders and he's partial
to those 12-man defenses. He's
happy, though, to be back where
football-playing weather is
more temperate, especially after

guard, and Dick Knostman

Nebraska's Jim Buchanan won

winning the pivot post.

playoff games with a three-inch
j layer of ice covering the field,"
Smitty shivers, "and another
inch of snow fell during the game.
We had to use hockey bluing to
mark off the sidelines."
Still broad and compact
built along the lines of a re
frigerator Big Harry rejoined
the Mizzou staff March 1 after
a two-year sojourn at USC as
freshman grid coach, and a year
In Canada. He replaces Bob
Maddock who went to the Uni
versity of Indiana as line coach
last month, and who, incidental
ly, filled Smith's vacancy here
in 1949.
Last year, Smith a two-time
All-American guard at USC led
Saskatchewan to a 10-8 campaign
and the squad's first champion
ship year since 1936. The Rough
Riders were finalists in the Grey
Lup playoffs.
Pro football is thriving in
Canada, Smitty says ,and in the
Western sector, at least. Is out
drawing hockey the national
pasttime. The final playoff
game, for instance, drew 28,000,
and tickets were scaled all the
way to $6 a copy.
Talent is, in Smitty's opinion,
uniformly good. Each squad car
ries 30 players, but must pare its
roster to seven American players
by Oct. 1. Two of Saskatchewan's
mainstays last year were Glenn
Dobbs, former Tulsa triple
threater, and Don "Red" Ettin
ger, the ex-Kansas line stalwart.
Dobbs recently was named
player-coach of the Saskatchewan
club, succeeding Smith. Ettinger
rates Smitty's highest aecolades.
"That red-head is a football-
piaying demon a great com
petitor," says Smith of Ettin
giner, "He played the full 60
minutes in sixteen of our games
-and played it tough all the
Basically, Canadian football
follows the American pattern,
but has its own individualistic
The major deviations are:
1. Twelve men instead of eleven

Backs have the
their American
counterparts in a "T" formation.
2. Larger playing field 10
yards longer and 12 yards wider
than the standard 100 by 53V.
prescribed for the American game.
Goal posts are on the goal-line
as in pro leagues here, but th
Canadians have a "touch-and'
goal" area extending for a dept.
of 25 yards behind the posts.
3. Only three downs, not four
are allowed in which to mak
a "first and ten."
4. Scoring differs. Five points
are awarded for a touchdown,
three for a field goal, two for
a safety, and one for a conver
sion or "rouge." The latter sit
uation arises when a kicked ball
passes through, or Is downed,
in the touch-and-goal area. The
kicked ball may be either a punt
or field-goal try, and the kick
ing team gets the point. How
ever, if the receiving team
elects to run the kick out of the
touch-ar-l-goal zone and suc
ceeds the point Is not awarded.
If the receiving team tries to
advance the kick out of the
area and fails the ball is then
put In play by the receiving
team on its own 25. If the ball
is unplayable in the touch-and-goal
area, as a result of having
gone through the area, the re
ceiving team gets the ball on
its own 40.
5. The defense "sits" a yard off
the scrimmage line, not up to the
tip of the ball. Downfield block
ing is only permitted ten yards
past the scrimmage line, and is
restricted to all linemen (or any
one on the line of scrimmage),
and one back (stationed outside
the end) who must be designated
m advance.
6. No forward passes may be
completed behind the scrimmage
line, ruling out the screen pass.
7. Players covering a punt
are required to maintain a five
yard gap until the receiver
catches the ball.
THLIK BIG JOB JUST STARTED ... The Nebraska coaching staff has awakened after a four
month dormancy period and has been shaping up the varsity football squad for the 1952 season.
Over 100 prospective candidates have turned out to take their spring conditioning from (left to
right) line coaches Marvin Franklin and Ralph Fife, backfield coach Bob Davis and (kneeling)
head coach Bill Glassford.
