Oregon has got to do something about third quarters. The
third quarter has got to go, or somehow be disguised.
t or two seasons now, the Webfoots have won games they
weren't supposed to win—except for the third quarter dropsy.
It has continued too long now to be classified as a gag; this has
blown itself into a full-scale jinx. As far as we are concerned,
there is no longer a third period in any Oregon football game.
From this time on, they are fifth periods. One, two, five, four is
not numerical order, but if our tonsils hurt—we just get ’em
Sentiment around Seattle was that Oregon looked lots better
than it was supposed to look—and that Washington’s hounds
were not as hot as their press clippings had forecast. That is all
pretty much true.
However, one point seems to have been overlooked, especially
by Queen City sports scribes. Headlines and rave notices con
centrated on Roland Kirkby whose number 44 jersey—with Ro
larid inside it—blasted through and around the Oregon line with
Kirkby drew the laurel wreaths largely because he played his
last game at Husky stadium.
Mr. Overlooked, from where we were sitting and shivering,
was a sophomore end by the name of Phil Gillis. He is a native
Oregonian who was brought to the massive Seattle plant to ski.
He just picked up football incidentally.
Gillis, who was a second half concentrate, hauled in five passes
that covered 67 yards worth of football field.
It might be that a bum would look good if he had Don Hein
rich passing to him, but Gillis, as a soph, just seems to have some
thing—including a powerful drive that carries for yards after he
has caught his pass.
A Soph All American? -
It has been a long, long time since a sophomore crashed an All
America team, but a hard-running halfback by the name of Bob
by Reynolds may turn the trick this year.
The fact that Reynolds is the nation’s leading scorer, and that
he has already smashed standing Big Seven (and old Big Six)
records for points scored in a season and yards gained, becomes
more significant when we consider that he is playing for the Uni
versity of Nebraska, which is only this year emerging from a dec
ade of gridiron humiliation.
The Cornhuskers have two games left, Saturday against Iowa
State, and Nov. 25 against the hot rod Oklahoma Sooners. Pro
viding- that they roll on schedule and defeat the Iowans, the
’Huskers will have the chance to tie Oklahoma for the confer
^*.nd thereby, we believe, hangs the tail. If Oklahoma is done
under—and we hereby predict that right now—Reynolds will be
named to at least one All-America selection, and Nebraska will
take its first bowl trip in ten years.
The Reynolds Shift
Reynolds, by the way, will be around for the Oregon-Nebras
ka game in 1952. Unless the flashy soph burns out his gears by
then, somebody ought to be thinking about a Reynolds’ shift—
unless that is only applicable to baseball.
An odd rumor is spreading around the University of Wash
ington campus concerning the Husky loss to California. It is said
that Pappy Waldorf trained a seven-man line for three weeks on
nothing but Washington plays and signals.
This line, the rumor has it, was not played in any game dur
ing that time, and plugged every hole that opened up, with the
precision of a Swiss timepiece. Could be a fallacy that grew from
a sharp Bear forward wall, or losers’ grapes, or the TRUTH.
Dependence comes in two main packages—parasitical and of
necessity born; but he who lives his life with others must know
what it is, for no man is bigger than all the men he knows—
Immorality is a state of living life as others desire it—An
Better to expose ourselves to ingratitude than fail in assist
ing the unfortunate—Du Coeur.
