2 Dec 1945 The Daily TARGET Page Three

As usual, Army's coach, Earl Blaik, is worried. Never a man to count his chicken, even after they are hatched, Blaik is fretting because his charges refuse to become frustrated over the possibility of a Navy upset in their clash today. "They're overconfident," the West Point mentor mourns. "Navy has a great club and I don't want my boys to be knocked off because they failed to realize what they're up against." Just what are they up against, Col Blaik, sir? A team that eked out a 6-6 tie with an Irish outfit which was murdered 48-0 the following week by your fearless Cadets; an eleven that barely salvaged a 14-7 win over Penn, a squad which in turn was squashed 61-0 by your strutting West Pointers. Even Michigan's Wolverines, shellacked 33-7 by Navy, as compared to a 28-7 defeat at the hands of the Cadets, have voiced the opinions that Army's pulverizing powerhouse is four TD's better than the Annapolis gang. And another thing, Colonel, in Cadets Blanchard and Davis you have two of the most assuring reasons in West Point history why Army will not slump against the Middies. Backs averaging some nine yards per play throughout a full season don't come a dime a dozen. And though defense has been Navy's long suit, Coach Hagberg's boys have come up against nothing like this dynamic duo. From our distant seat we can't see anything but Army by five touchdowns. In other games we choose: NOTRE DAME over Great Lakes- Irish always end with a bang. ALABAMA over Miss St--Bull- dogs could cause trouble. So will Gilmer. GEORGIA over Georgia tech- traditional rivalry here. toughest kind to pick. Just cut the cards and it came out Trippi. ISU over Tulane--Green Wave sick dribble after this one. AUBURN over Miami--Tigers big league even if few wins. SMU over TCU--Mustangs romped last week; should repeat. RICE over Baylor--Owls crossed us last week; might atone. SOUTHERN CAL over UCLA-- Bitter cross-town rivals, but Troy always comes out on top. OREGON ST over Oregon-- Another one for which we had to call in Abe to help us out. And with that we clamp the lid shut on the regular 1945 football season. There'll be a galaxy of Bowl clashes still to come, so you bladder baiters stick around-- 'till your ship comes in anyway.
