THE DAILY TAR HEEL
By Bill Peacock
Tar Heel -Relay
Another Bowl Suggestion
REX ENRIGHT, FOOTBALL COACH at South Carolina raised
an interesting point recently when he said the Southern Conference
"would go for a permanent contract with ajjowl that would match
our champion with another."
There was a certain amount of sentiment for such a bowf hook-up
'.even at the Richmond meeting and apparently the feeling has in
creased. One of the conference's most powerful representatives has
said privately on several occasions that he can see nothing wrong
with a set-up like the Big Ten has with the Rose Bowl.
It is not the. rule on how many times a team may represent the
conference that interests most of the schools, but the division of
the money. In the Big Ten after expenses are subtracted, the rep
resenting school gets two shares of the gate, the conference office
gets a share, and all the other nine schools get a share.
"This way," says Max, Farrington of George Washington,
the president of the Southern Conference, "no team could embark on
a tremendous building program and get it all back in one full swoop."
He also points out that football, which contributes nothing to the
conference office, could help maintain the office under this plan.
The Plan Has Merit
THIS PLAN CERTAINLY HAS merit. The glory of playing in
the bowl and the' enjoyment of the players-would be just as great,
even if the cut was reduced radically. Illinois got less, than $50,000
after expenses for playing in the Rose Bowl, which is considerably
less than Carolina makes for playing Duke. .
Whether the reduction in the payoff would 'make some of the
presidents of the conference approve the bowl is doubtful. If all 17
schools in the conference got a cut, playing in bowls would'certainly
not be a financial killing.
Apparently the -NCAA would not prevent the conference from
signing such an agreement. The NCAA voted to terminate agreements
with bowls after January 2, 1953 until further study is made, which
would not prevent the conference to play in the next bowl game
under such an agreement.
The bowl people seem interested in such a set-up, because the
adverse publicity threatened this year to put them in a bad way.
Only the Orange" Bowl and the Sugar Bowl of the major bowls are
still free to make an agreement. The Sugar Bowl board meets shortly
and such a plan will undoubtedly be discussed.
The rub in the Southern Conference comes with selecting a
champion. It is' possible for two teams to have a perfect record
in conference play, but still be second or third in the conference in
actual strength. The only way to avoid this . would be . to have the
teams play more conference games, but the big time schools have no
interest in playing more than four or five conference games.
' And this last problem brings up the old question of breaking
up the conference," which many observers say will come shortly.
The New Trophy Cases .
- LET'S LEAVE THE SOUTHERN Conference and turn to some
thing of purely local interest. The new trophy cases have been, in
.oiio ;;v,viw rjvm lust to the right and left of the main doors
in the lobby. But there remain quite a number of trophies which
i v,o Sp and if some philanthropist or class here
at Carolina is having trouble disposing of some money they could
well donate additional cases. , . . w
It would cost about $300 to build a case like one of the two now
