THE DOPE: The Owls, picked by many to win the title last season, finished last. They are picked for last this year and should be much more formful, since Coach Jess Neely has the youngest and possibly the lightest team in his 27 years as head coach. Missing, for instance, is the raw material for one of those magnificent lines which ordinarily mark his teams and, with 10 sophomores out of 11 tackle candidates, Neely will have troubles on defense. His starting halfbacks—Dan Shuford and G. F. Alsbrook—are sophomores, too, but they provide the speed so sorely missed last year. Two extraordinarily adept quarterback veterans, King Hill and Frank Ryan, furnish what is perhaps the one bright spot.
