Although tlie expert* have relegated Coach J,cn Casa
nova* Oregon Ducks to the unhappy position of eighth place
in the nine-team Pacific Coast Conference race, the ex-Pitts
hurgh mentor does not intend to justify their predictions.
Here is the schedule which is faced by the 1951 Ducks:
STANFORD. September 22 at Portland. The Indians
won only five games in 1950, but they tied Cal 7-7 and lost
to then mighty Army only 7-0 in a rainstorm.
The Stanford forward wall, anchored by All-American
End Bill McColl, is strong at all positions except tackle,
and transfers or members of the undefeated 1950 Indian
Frosh might be able to handle that position.
Indian Coach Chuck Taylor will be hoping for his first
college coaching victory when he meets the Ducks. This
is 'I aylor’s first varsity coaching job, although lie guided three
Stanford Frosh squads to 14 triumphs, no setbacks and one
ARIZONA. September 29 at Eugene. The Webfoots
meet Arizona for the second time. Arizona won the first
one 20-6 in 19.17.
Wildcat Coach Bob Winslow expects “a very successful
season.” Arizona, favored for the Border Conference champ
ionship, will be tough to beat.
COLLEGE OF PACIFIC. October 6 at Stockton.
Coach Larry Scimcring (won 35, lost 5, tied 3) is gone, but
the COPs apparently will continue to win more than their
share of the victories.
j1 The 1950 Tigers set an all-time major college single sea
son record by attempting 800 rushing and passing plays,
more tha any other major college has ever attempted during
a single season. Halfback Eddie Macon is back to lead the
COP running attack.
WASHINGTON. October 13 at Portland. Despite the
shoulder injury of All-Coast (Juartorback Don Heinrich, the
llu kies will be ready with two other signal callers, Sam
Mitchell and Dean Hockey.
When Heinrich injured his wrist during spring prac
tice, Coach Howard Odell devoted an unusual amount of
attention to Mitchel and Rockney. They’ll be ready. So
will Fullback Hugh McElhenny, who averaged 6.18 yards
per rushing attempt in 1950.
If Washington has a weakness, it will be a lack of de
fensive strength. Odell employs a 5-1-2 defense.
The Oregon game comes on a Saturday between the
Huskies’ October 6 battle with l SC and their October 20
meeting with Illinois, so they might be subject to a ‘‘letdown”
and could be ripe for an upset.
UCLA. < ktober 20 at Los Angeles. The I’CLAns re
portedly have the best set of backs since Coach Red Sanders
arrived in 1949. They dropped CSC 39-0 last fall and lost
to powerfid Washington only 21 20, so their 26 returning lel
termen should prove to be useful.
WASHINGTON STATE. October 27 at Pullman. Cou
gar Publicity Director Don Paris says, “Watch out for the
Cougars.” Obviously, the staters expect to have a better sea
son this fall. Their 1950 eleven won four, 1«>st three, tied two.
IDAHO. November 3 at Eugene. Oregon probably will
be favored to win this one, although the Vandals defeated
the 1950 Ducks for their first victory over an Oregon squad
in 25 years. The all-time Duck Vandal record:. Oregon, 29
wins, Idaho 3 wins, 4 ties.
BOSTON U. November 10 at Boston. Terrier Coach
Aldo T. Donelli has won 49 games while losing 17 and tying
1. but he probably won't continue to win at thirt rate in ‘51.
This first meeting between the two schools should be a close
CALIFORNIA. November 17 at Berkeley. Although
Coach Leu Casanova has a habit of preparing his gridders for
fabulous upsets, he can hardly “point" for this one without
risking a “letdown” against the old traditional rivals from
the agricultural institution on the following Saturday.
OREGON STATE COLLEGE. November 24 at Eu
gene. The Aggies expect a better season. Fullback Sam
Baker and Halfback Dave Mann will lead Ihc Ag ground at
