Baylor-Amte Football Feud May Arloo
From Holimlx to Burdltt Hideout Flay
opening play of the AwteJlaylor game last Baiur-
day, the Hollmif to Burdltt Hideout play, la causing more
than thi usual amount of repercussions across the eUte.
It aeenift the play la bolng accepted In two entirely dif*
ferent veins, one source praising it*Und another citing the
play aa the basis of what might easily de
velop into a feud between Baylor and AAM.
It seems the High Moguls of Baylor
University are bleeding in no uncertain
terms about a certain lack of phones from
the press box to the Baylor Bench for their
spotter. Wheff Burditt trotted off the field
to the Baylor sidelinee to get in position for
the “hideout”, the spotter (if he saw the
play) was unable to do a thing about k.
From what we hear, the grapevine from
Waco is that this play had a “demoralizing
Gaodwyi effect” on the Bears which had a “profound
influence” T on the eventual outcome of the game.
We wonder if, perhaps, those coffin-comer punts off the
toe of Stan Hollmlg might not
have had a “profound influnece” . .
on the outcome of the game ? There
are some who are of the opinion,
we are told, that trying to run
plays while straddling one’s own
goal line U a little “demoralizing"
in itaelf.
We’re not trying to minimize
the lack of phones. It was definit-
