The i practical prllctllalreason reason why yhy one man
has b been been played 111 In the thequarterbnck quarterback I
pos position ition In advance of the other
backshns ba backs Ics bas been because blCuuseorlglnnlly originally the bo
man receiving the hall fro from in Ibesnap be snap
back was wnsMt npt permitted le rl1tt > d under the
rules to run with it it across the line of 1
scrimmage Half a dozen years yel1rsogQu ago iigoa a
rule rnlewlls was passed permlttlnB hIm to ud <
vpince the ba ball jj but with the restric ¬
tion that be bemust must cross the line of f
spr s scrimmage r immagent immoc nt least five fiveyardsJrmn yards from the
po poInt int w wberetllebnl where here the bull was V at put In play
This necess neeessltute itated the use useo of oftlio ftbol1uar the quar ¬
ter terbaek t back for all line plunges
Un Under der the new rules the manre man re ¬
celvlng the ball on thesnapback the snapbacic may
advance advan o Itlit it at any point polntTbe The necessity necess ity
for tllequl1rterback the quarterback k Is Ii therefore gone n ine
The Thehnndllng handling of ortbe the ba bnllbyon bail ll by an Inter ¬
mediate me laternan man necessarily takes tnllestme time
and nlldmukesfumbllnj makes fumbling more likely so
that now that thqt the necessity for or It Ithnll baa
been removed remQvedtbe the quarterback quar te rback position
will 111 ex exist ist no more more
The Tl Tlerul erul rules requ require ire ire that the team tenmbav hay ¬
ing the tbebnllshnll ball shall have hn e at least lelis t seven seon
men men on ontbe the lJ1e line o of t tscrlmmage scrimmage This
leaves tour wen ien for t rtbe the back backfield field
There will doubtless doubtles s bo bomuchexperl much expert ¬
menting wlfh wlhtllese wlh these men before < the
most mo effective method method d of lining them
up wll will be be discovered
The pass ing lngot of the quarterback qunrtl rbgck Is In
only one Qne of many changes clunjcs wrought In
football by the new new rules rnlesThQstyl The style
of otplny p play iny will will necessarily begre be greatly tly
changed chnngedln In many respects respects respectsnn and nn dnllthe all the
big I colleges will start work a ntrlfie trifle
earlier than usual usnll1lnorder In order to try tryout out
the possibilities of the tben hew w game gorneand and
Instruct the candidates cnnll ntes thoroughly
In It
In past years when whrnn a team feambri has bad
but n nynrd yard or or two to gain on the third blr d
down dov it has hit the line knowing kllo k owiug lng
that It It would almost almosfsurely surely make mn ken a
short sbortadvance advance there Now with the
no nopushlng pushing or or or pulling puilit clause clnuReln In of
fee feet t this avenue of advance ndvanctls is cl closed sed
This Tblsmeans means that a team In such u upo po ¬
sition sltlonw11l will kick On the first firstllnd and sec scc ¬
ond onddowns downs forward passing will prove
more mOre popular populartbnn than heretofore for to r rnow now
the tbepl pass pass ss can be bemride made over overonipo any i po tnt
In the line while the opposing g team
can Interfere with the man manrccelvlng receiving
tbepnssonly thepass the pass only In Inabonn a bona fide lIdenttempfto attempt to
catch the ball Then too the fifteen
yard penalty for an Incompleted pass
has been beentnken taken away nwuyTliIs This means m ons
that forward forwnrdpasslng passing and kicking will
form the backbone backboneotlhe of the offense In
stead of oftbe the tIJeoId old style of line plunging
On the defense the changes chOngesIn In Inplny play 1
will be beequallygreutUnderthe beequally equally great Under Undertho the rules
of otndozen a dozen years ago the coaches
sought men menot of gigantic frame fram and
weight for forthelllle forthe the Hue They Tbeyw were 0cc retold told to
bold their position no matter what
happened If they prevented advances
through tbro ghor or over themselves that t 1atwas was
nil that was expected of them Then
came tbe thochanges cbanges > of ot1005 1005 permitting
the forward torwardpnss pass and the theonsldeklcki onside kick
It now became necessary nOeessar to develop
guards and tackles tnckleswbo who could get
down the field speedily sp edlly and nndiecover recover
the ball on the kicks as well ns aslwld hold
their place as nsunder under the old rules rule s In
short better men were needed
Now the possibility of otattnckhig attacking the
lIne successfully by any save snvetrlck trick
plays has been done doneilwny away with wltbAt At
first glance glanrelt It might be thought that
this thiliwouhlllgbten would lighten the requirements of
the linemen IInemenbutlnstendlthnstlle but butinstead Instead It bas the op ¬
posite poslteelfect effect The old style stylogunrd guard guardwho who
fought to retain retnlnhls his position In the line
without thought of activity In the open
field would be useless today
With the thedelltb death of the thernansplay mass play end
running will be bedoubly doubly popular poplllarnnd and
linemen will > be beexpected expected to toleave toleavethelr leave heir
positions to break brellkthes these up But Jntut at
the same time they must be heady
players plnyerseverready ever ready to size up the play
of their opponents pponentstorltn for If n lineman
