Tomorrow's football calendar is
about as attractive as has been of
fered this season, headed by the Tale
Princeton, Pensylvania-Michigan and
Syracuse-Colgate games in the east
and the Minnesota-Chicago and Illinois-Wisconsin
games in the west, on
which depend the 1916 championship
of the Big Nine.
The Yale-Princeton game undoubt
edly will attract a mammoth crowd.
The supporters of the Blue will wan
der back to New Haven hoping
against hope that Tom Shevlin has
accomplished a miracle in the last
two weeks and whipped a team into
shape that will make a creditable
showing against the Tigers. The
Princeton partisans, recovering from
the Harvard defeat, will drift back to
cheer for what they believe is the
best Tiger eleven that has emerged
from Old Nassau in years.
Yale is hoping for a repetition of
the 1910 feat Yale faced Princeton
,in that year in much the same way
broken and shattered, with Tom
Shevlin but two weeks at the helm,
having been brought back by fran
tic calls for help. But the old Eli
star upset the dope by pushing his
demoralized charges to a 5 to 3 vic
tory over the Tigers and crowned the
stunt a week later by playing Har
vard to a scoreless tie when the odds
were about 3 to 1-against him1 Maybe
Shevlin has turned the trick again
Two elevens which have been find
ing the going rough meet at Phila
delphia. The result is not important,
as both teams are weaker this year
than for many seasons and long since
out of the championship running. Up
at Syracuse there promises to be a 'fy
real battle. Colgate with the best
eleven in her history and one of the
best in the country faces a tough cus
tomer in Syracuse, who held Prince
ton 3-0. Colgate's hopes of remain
ing in the championship groove are
on the game.
Chicago, narrowly escaping de
feat on two previous occasions this
season seems doomed to a beating
tomorrow when the Maroon eleven
meets Minesota. The Gopher team,
with its full strength present, fur
nishes the toughest opposition the
Midwayites have met all season.
Bierman, the smashing Minnesota
halfback, will be in the game, adding
his strength to the plunging attack
which tore up the Illinois line. Chi
cago, on the other hand, will be
weakened by the absence of Fullback
Flood, kept out of the game by scho
lastic failings. No question has been
raised as to the eligibility of Capt
Illinois will clash with Wisconsin
and a victory for the downstaters
will leave them another chance for
the championship. Zuppke has the
best team that has represented his
school this year, and, barring inju
ries to morrow, will have an even bet
ter eleven when Chicago is met next
Pogue is in shape to play at least (ft
one period tomorrow! It is probable
he will be held in reserve for an emer
