Coach Greasy Neal's National
Football league champion Eagles
were rated last night as 10-point
favorites over the All-Star reti
nue" coached by Bud Wilkinson,
the split-T mentor from Okla
homa. However, the records show
that the collegians have some
times won when few thought vic
tory was possible.
In the 1948 lake-front football
show, the Chicago Cardinals,
coached by Jimmy Conzelhan,
romped to a 28-to-0 triumph over
an all-star team coached by
Notre Dame's Frank Leahy. The
over-all series stands at eight
victories for the pros, five for
the collegians, and two ties.
Although the hot weather ex
Derts favor the Eagles to down
the collegians, the champs prob
ably won t hit pay dirt tnrougn
the Stars' line. Both All-Star
players and coaches are pretty
confident of that.
On the offense the college lads
will present a solid Notre Dame
front in the middle of the line
with Marty Wendell and Bill
Fischer still doing duty as guards
and Bill Walsh at center.
To spark scoring, Wilkinson
will spring such quarterbacks as
Frank Tripucka, Notre Dame;
Jack Mitchell, Oklahoma, and
Norm Van Brocklin, Oregon.
Other backfield standouts on
the Stars' roster Include Don
Doll, Southern California; George
Guerre. Michigan State; Clyde
Scott, Arkansas, and Jerry Wil
liams, Washington State.
