A DANGEROUS FOE

FOE MINNESOTA GAME.
Gophers Facing What Now Looks to Be
the Most Dangerous Opponent of the
1904 ScheduleMinnesota Must Be

a Likely Looking Lot.
By a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 24.There Is going to benot
football game In Minneapolis, Minn., Saturday
afternoon. There will not be a score of 146-0,
and there will not be a score of 46-0 If Nebraska
improves this week on the game put up against
Knox college here Saturday.
The situation Is not at all unlike when the
miner met the grizzly In the mountain pass and
prayed: '-Lord, If you can't help me, don't
help the bear, but Just stand aeide and watch
the hottest bear, fight you ever did see." Ne
braska Is rejuveuated has an empty hospital
list la going fast Is big and strong, and theof
gophers are facing the worst fight of their sched
ule when they take on Booth's men. Booth
has done all of his training with an eye on the
Minnesota game, and has evolved a fighting mae
chine that is going to open the eyes of ticket
hojdera at Northrop field Saturday afternoon.
Bender, Benedict awl Eager.
These are three men for Minnesota to watch,
and watch all of the time. If any one of them
gets the ball, and gets away for three feet, it is
as good as. a touchdown, no matter in what part
of the field they may get the ball. These fel
lows, with Cotton and Fenlon, are the "offensive
section" of the Nebraska team. "Big" Mills,
about whom so much has been said, Is simply
blocking material. He is an impediment to
offense and not an aggressive resisting force.
His work Is purely negative in its quality, but
he is imposing in appearance.
Nebraska's offense is a whirlwind in rapidity.
Saturday, against Knox, they worked the crlss
crossi on two occasions thru the failure of Knox's
end to get behind the cornhusker line to break
it up. On the other hand, Knox duped the Ne
braska team nicely with a take pass. Nebraska
sent her ends into the advance for good gains,
and called the turtle-back into life on one or two
occasions. The play upon which they relied for
short gains, when necessary, was
a mass push play directed against
guard or center, and Knox could
not hold It. If Minnesota's backfleld works
right, this push play of Nebraska, if tried here
Saturday, will work disastrously to Nebraska,
bnt it will have to be met Just right or it will
go thru. If the backs meet It too quickly, it
will go as surely a* if they neglected to get into
the play at all. It "must Ije^nicely timed.
Backfield Is Strong.
Nebraska's backfleld is a strong one. Barwick
was at the quarter and kept his team going fast.
Bender and Eager, the halves, are on springs
every instant, and to them is chiefly due the
credit for winning from Knox. Mason, as a
fullback. Is not the equal of Earl Current, altho
a steady, dependable man.
To get a comparative line on Nebraska with
Minnesota, it may be safely asserted that Knox
has a much hotter offense than Ames, and as
good if not a little better defense. Knox was
too light to withstand the plunging of the Ne
braskans but, on the other hand, the lady from
Galesburg went thru Nebraska's line at times.
In the first klckoff, Nebraska sent the ball to
Knox's 20-yard line, and it Was run back five
yards. Right liere-It would be well, to remark
that Booth's men have been exceptionally well
trained In getting odwn the field under punts.
Knox hit the cornhusker line and gasps of sur
prise went np from the Nebraska legions. Knox
tore thru for her first downs and soon had the
ball in the center of the field. Here Chesley
got away on his fake pass to within seven
yards of the cornhusker goal. Nebraska braced
up with a Jerk and held for downs, getting the
hall and immdiately kicking It. Knox could
not gain and Bender's two runs made the first
touchdown. The battle for a touchdown was
fought entirely in Knox territory, Benedict pull
ing off a star advance. Bender went over for
the touchdown. Benedict made the following
touchdown thru a.gateway on a criss-cross, after
Bender had made^a 40-yard return of the Knox
klckoff. Bender ran the next klckoff back to
the center of the field and Nebraska kicked.
The battle raged back and forth, Knox going
thru Nebraska's line once or twice, but not mak
ing big gains. Nebraska worked the ball up to
within five yards of Knox's goal, and the Illi
nois men beld for downs, the half ending with
the ball in Knox's possession, after a good ad
vance by llnebucklng.
Knox Held Nebraska.
In the second half Knox again held Nebraska
for downs. Johnson, the colored left end, gotcould
Into the going for several good gains. Eager,
Benedict and Bender did most of Nebraska's
carrying. Borg went In at center apparently a
sound man. He can be figured as held safely
by Mose Strathern without further worry, bnt
Moses will have his work cut out for him. Redl
dick replaced Bender at this stage of the game,
but did nothing to Justify extended comment.
Another criss-cross gave Benedict a chance for
a 50-yard run, and he accepted it. The next'
score come after a kicking bout in Knox terri
tory, and the half ended with the ball in
braska's possession on Knox's 5-yard line. Cot
ton got into the going for a 25-yard advance in
this port of the play.
Nebraska's strength lies in her fast offense,
her splendid team play and finely developed in
terference. This offense is a flashy one, looking
faster than it really is, but fast enough at that
to kick up all sorts of trouble for ai/y team
Which Nebraska will meet, Minnesota included
Shook and Monson ("Cy") were in the left wing
and Knox pounded these men hard. The back
field did not jump into the secondary defense
quick enough on this side. On the other hand
the heavy Knox men went over Cotton and
Monolith Mills on several occasions. The col
ored boy, Johnson, plays a scrappy left end and
Is quick to get after poachers" around his wing.
Benedict, on right end, is one of Nebraska's
test. Most of his advance was off tackle and
lie Is a dodger hard to hold or to tackle. Weller,

Bender is almost Nebraska, and while this Is
a broad statement, it is trne. He is fully as
good a man as Davles, Durgan or Irsfield and as
-fast as Hunter. In saying this it is not lowering
ftese boys a thousandth of an inch from their
-positions in western football.
Bender Is Good.
Bender is good, and so is Fenlon, but if the

By a Staff Correspondent.
Madison, Wis.. Oct. 24.The badger team does
show that there has been anything but the
greatest harmony In connection with iWiseon
sin athletics. Whatever differences may have
existed, all are forgotten now in preparation for
the coming big games with Michigan and Minne
At present everything seems to be coming well
for the squad there ore few cripples and the
men are becoming faster and more versatile
with each practice. New spirit seems to be
given to the men since the .faculty has. decided
that Vanderbboni was eligible. Thus puts five
the veterans In the game. Captain Bush, Find
lay, Kemp, Bertke and Vanderboom. All of the
men are very strong In their positions, and the
other places are filled by heavy, fast men, who
ar playing high-class football.
The general' sentiment among badger sup
porters Is that this is the season to even up
things with the gophers and Michigan. The
Michigan team comes to Madison Saturday, and
Wisconsin will have the advantage of playing at
home. The team is much stronger than last
year, while Michigan is no better, if not weaker,
and with the improvement of another week it
is thought that Wisconsin will be more than able
to overcome the difference of sixteen points by
which Michigan won last year.
Bertke is, perhaps, the best man In the line.
Last year he was selected as all-western guard,
but was shifted to left -tackle^thb* year, where
he Is playing a star game. He is very strong
on both offense and defense, and by his spec
tacular work promises to make all kinds of
trouble for his opponents and again win a posi
tion on the all-western.
Kinney, Perry and Brindlfty are candidates for
the other tackle position. Brlndlay played well
in Saturday's game, and the coaches promise
that this position will he well taken care of by
the time the big games are played. Last year's
experience has taught Remp much about playing
center, and he is playing a smashing defense
game. With Donovan and Stromquist at guards,
there should be very little ground made thru the
center of the line. Stromquist i3 a very strong
man on offense and will probably be called upon
to carry the ball.
At ends, Captain Bush and Findlay seem to
have everything their own way- Both, are fast
and experienced, and on defense, are covering
lots of ground, and stopping everything that
comes their way. Either can carry the ball
well on offense. Bush has the greater experi
ence, while Findlay has the weight.
In the backfleld, Vanderboom is easily the
star. He has all the qualities of a great half
back and is playing with fine dash and spirit.
He Is equally strong In bucking the line with
the ball or smashing interference on defense.
His positive return to the game is the .best
news that could have been brought to the uni
Jones, at quarter, is another great favorite
with the rooters, and is playing a remarkable
game for his first year. If he continues his ex
cellent work, he will be one of the best quarter
backs that Wisconsin has ever produced.

Nebraska will improve this week. Their hos

up a score against Grinneil of 146 to 0, a new

men from Iowa did not "quit." Their physical
condition was good, and they kept fighting

of the greatest scoring machine in the country.
Against this .eaistance, spirited if not strong,
Dr. Williams' proteges hurled a perfected inter
ference which it will be hard for any of her
coming opponents to solve. There was a dash
and vim to the big fellows' play which augurs
much for the future. The line, strengthened
by Burdick and Thorpe, charged on their op

were always at a disadvantage, and the maroon
and gold runner, got away behind a solid wall

The contest between the maroon and the pur

west, not only because it was the first real
championship game of the season, but more be
cause of the supposed equality of the two teams.
Locally it was the more important game of the
year, involviug the championship of Chicago.
That the result was surprising to both teams
is apparent from the statements,'of the coaches
and captains of the two elevens. That Chicago
won over its old rivals is not surprising. Had
the Northwestern eleven won the result would not
have been surprising. But that the one team
was outplayed at almost every point of the game
by the other, and that at no time did Northwes
tern team show the strength which had been
expected of it, was as unexpected to the rooters
for Chicago as to the followers of the Evanston
team. When the game was over there was no
room for discussion. The purple had been out
played almost from the beginning to the end.

High-school football eyes are turned toward
Central this week, and will carefully watch the

was defeated by the strong North Side team by
a score of 11 to 0, unexpected strength was

same time, the Central boys have been under
the tutorship of Coach Jimmy Irsfield, and have
proved their strength in the game with the deaf
mates at Faribault Saturday, taking the game
handily with the score of 11 to 0, and by their
victory over Macalester. Unless Central de
velops a punter during the week, East will have
a decided advantage In kicking, as Frykman is
good for an average of from forty to fifty
The game between the Central team and the
mutes was well played thruout. Central was
saved from being scored on at the end of the
first half by the calling of time, the mutes hav
ing advanced the ball by kicking and rushes to
Central's 5-yard line. Otherwise the Central
goal was never in danger, and the high school
boys scored twice, once in each half.
