OVERCONFIDENCE IS FATAL, SAYS COACH Game With Iowa Showed Monilaw Where Tigers Are Weak. AMES WILL GIVE HARD TUSSLE Changes Are Necessary to Block Gains by Forward Pass. Saturday’s victory over the Hawkeyes, while pleasing to Coach Monilaw, has not served to inspire him with overconfidence, but has shown him the weak spots in the Tiger’s play. Coach Monilaw said today to a reporter for the University Missourian: “While I was extremely well pleased with the result of Saturday’s game, which was won by the speed, determination and individual playing of our fellows, still I could see several weaknesses which might bring disaster in the near future. In the first place, our defense was way in advance of our offense. “Even with our defense so masterful as it seemed, there was a weak spot in the defense of forward pass. This weak spot was not due to any fault of the players, but to the general system. Iowa and Rolla both showed us this weak spot and I have already made the necessary changes...

Ames is Stronger than Ever Before [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 3 May 1909
AMES IS STRONGER THAN EVER BEFORE Team of Veterans Will Meet the Tigers on Rollins Field Saturday. EXCELS AT FORWARD PASSING Missouri Will Depend on Line Plunging and Trick Plays. The Ames team that faces Missouri tomorrow afternoon will be much stronger than the one which played Minnesota to a standstill three weeks ago. Not only have the Aggies improved since their first big game, but they have been strengthened by the addition of two veterans, Bruegger at right tackle, and Hubbard at right half, who were barred from the game against the “Gophers” because they were playing for their fourth year, a contradiction of the three-year clause in the Chicago Conference rules under which the two teams had contracted. The addition of these two old men to the line-up makes Ames a veteran eleven. Only one man on the team has not played at least one year, and six of them are playing their third and fourth seasons. Teams Well Matched. Aside from the fact that the “Aggies” are more ages and have...

Topeka football followers are expecting to see the best game of the season Saturday, when Washburn college and Drake University mix it up on the Washburn checker board. Of course the Washburn - K. U., game will be a hummer, but that game will be at Lawrence, so that those who cannot go to the university town or to Kansas City Thanksgiving are whetting their teeth for some lovely football this week. Drake stands in about the same position in Iowa as Washburn does in Kansas.

Gossip About Western Teams [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 3 May 1909
GOSSIP ABOUT WESTERN TEAMS Coach Cole of Nebraska is Nervous About Iowa Contest. MICHIGAN’S PRACTICE SECRET Wisconsin Team Doing Light Work-Rooters Watch Hawkeyes. LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 30. Coach Cole expects a hard struggle on the football field with Iowa, and has warned his men that it may be fatal on their part to expect an easy victory. With that feeling in his mind, the coach has kept the squad at work right along, utilizing the state farm grounds for practice because of the lack of mud and unavailability to curious spectators.

Who Was Best Football Kicker? [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 3 May 1909
WHO WAS BEST FOOTBALL KICKER? Pat O’Dea, Former Tiger Coach, Shares Honors With John DeWitt. Discussion as to who is the greatest kicker in the last decade of college football is again warm. The principal argument is over the respective merits of Pat O’Dea, Wisconsin fullback of 1896 and former coach of the Missouri Tigers, and John DeWitt, star guard of Princeton in 1903. It is generally admitted that they share the honors between them. Pat O’Dea could drive the leather farther than any other player who ever lived. Time and again in games he sent the ball through the air a distance of eighty yards, only thirty yards less than the length of the field. He consistently punted sixty-five and seventy yards. His punts were high spirals, that traveled so rapidly that no end on earth could get down under them. As a drop kicker he was good, but not the equal of DeWitt or several others. Dewitt could not kick as high as O’Dea, but he sent a high floater that made it easy for his ends to be u...
