I don't know how you writers do it. Steve Springer's article today, "Those Gaels, What Tales," was tops. It sure brought back memories of those great St. Mary's teams. Slip Madigan was a big name then, and Herman Wedemeyer was one of the great backs of all time. I liked your story about the plow, but I heard it first about Minnesota recruiting around 1930. About the time of Bronko Nagurski. It still is a good story, whoever originated it.
Just for the record, I played football in 1932, and was awed by the power of such a small college as St. Mary's. I believe that Knute Rockne's influence helped all Catholic schools in recruiting the best athletes in those days. There never was, and probably never will be, a coach like Rockne.
