Review of Season.
Mr. Camp calls the season one of miracles, with a disappointing end, which he believes shows the necessity of four downs to give a sufficient test of superiority. He writes in part as follows: "The football season of 1911 will go down in history as one of miracles. In fact, aside from the sudden transformation of teams from losing teams to victorious teams, and vice versa, even the ball finally began to take part in the extraordinary happenings, and on one day, namely, the day of the Princeton-Dartmouth and Andover-Exeter games, in each of which games the ball performed what would seem to be a miracle, namely, running along the ground for a considerable distance and then bounding up over the crossbar. Then, too, the favorites in a very great proportion of the important games were returned eventually as the losers; nor was there any consistency about these upsets, but they came in most unexpected ways and upon extraordinary occasions. Not only were teams inconsistent in their work, but also individuals. Men who had played steadily through the season until some important game suddenly seemed to lose their perspective and, hence, their effectiveness. This was true in several positions. The principal contests of the year were won and lost through a fumble or a fluke. None of the other work counted.
Forward Pass and Onside Kick Ineffective.
"The forward pass has taken no more prominent position than of old; in fact in late games considerably less. It has resulted in disaster on one or two occasions in contests that meant a good deal. It has not been productive of any spectacular plays. The onside kick has been, as always, a matter of luck. There seems to be a wide diversity of opinion on the matter of the rules so far as physical injuries are concerned, which only a more careful analysis can really determine. Without statistical information it seems as if injuries to the hand, arm, and shoulder had been more prevalent this year than before, but injuries to the body or spine much less.
