*»■ Perhaps you wondered . . .
Tex Oliver is credited with in
troducing something new to the
Northwest. It’3 part of the ‘‘Oli
ver Twist,” namely the policy of
r directing his grid forces during
the first half of ball games from
the press box high above the field.
^Instructions are carried by phone
to the Oregon bench.
But there came a change.
Tex trapsed to the press coop
to watch his men beat Washing- j
ton State and UCLA. Then came
their 7,000-mile road trek and de
feats by Stanford and Fordham.
Against Southern California the
idea still prevailed. And the Web
foots took their third licking.
Tex’s policy, which reminds one 1
,—not quite—of a mother rearing |
'her children by proxy, was aban-1
doned against Idaho, and Oregon
won. It was his first departure
from the press coop idea since he
startled the natives in Arizona
with it several falls ago. Against
California, he spent another 60
minutes on the bench, and says
he’ll probrt’fly be there against
Washington and Oregon State.
Why the change ? The answer,
and there is one, can’t be gleaned
from Tex Oliver until after the
Coach Oliver isn’t worried much
about beatirif Washington. He’s
worried more about getting
enough cripples back into uniform
to make a team. If Tex gets 11
healthy non-limping specimens on
the Multnomah grid Saturday,
then lie says Oregon’s jinx on
Washington might come in handy
He yesterday named a starting
lineup, for instance: Hank Nilsen
at quarterback, IF Vie Kcginato1
at end, IF, und so on.
What worries him most? That
was so easy for the head man,
“When they’ve got the ball.” Se
riously though: “One of our great
est troubles . . . we haven’t gone
in to rush the passer . . . haven't
tackled him before he throws the
Coach Oliver, who stood by oth
er coaches at the season’s start in
picking Washington as one of the
conference's three toughest teams,
pointed out that Jimmie Phelan
still packs a wealth of potential
power. Phelan himself picked
Washington to finish thir.’i and
Oregon seventh; thus: Stanford,
Southern California, Washington,
Washington S t a t e, California,
UCLA, Oregon, and Oregon State.
He stunds as one of the nation’s
few coaches who actually picked
his team to be a top-notcher.
