Coaches, like jockeys, must have the horses if they are to win
takes. And. of course, Bowden Wyatt had them at Tennessee where
'58 Scripps-Howard Coach of the Year was undefeated and untied
in a 10-game schedule this season.
But, essential as the horses were ... and, incidentally, we live
in constant fear that any day an irate horse from Belmont will come
galloping Into our office, charging malicious ridicule ... we neverthe nevertheless

The conditions of the award make neither an all-winning sea sea-ion

achievements stem largely, if not wholly, from an abundance of

Under the stated conditions, (1) influence cf players; (2) gener generalship;

consideration for Coach of the year honors.
This doesn't happen often, and because it doesn't, some excel excellent
lent excellent coaching performances, which are unattended by champion championship,
ship, championship, glamor and dramatic incident, are not properly evaluated.
The coaches are always crying in their short beer about what
t harsh life they lead, and yet when voting time comes, do they
make a pitch for a job well done, regardless of the won and lost
column? They do not. They virtually break down the booths to vote
for spotless slates and poll popularity, unmindful, if not actually
indifferent, to the fact that they are piling ossa on pelion, not tot
mention, hangover on migrane.
MADE IT ON MAJORS
Stijli Bowden Wyatt comes much closer to meeting the top-to-bottom
award qualifications than any of the brethren's recent
" choices. In a relative sense, he was not generously stocked with
muscle, and his high card, Johnny Majors, obviously no bulldozer
at 162 pounds, had to be strategically spotted if the season was to be
It was a testimonial to Wyatt's spotting and the skills of the
young pride of Huntland, Tenn. (population 303) that at the end of
the season, Majors was being linked with some of the South's hal hallowed
lowed hallowed heroes. Ace Parker, Charlie Justice, Beattie Feathers,
Frank Sinkwich, Charley TJnpi, et al.
When Wyatt resigned from Arkansas two years ago to return
to his alma mater where he had won All-America press cuttings in
'38, Tennessee football had dropped sharply from the high estate

ness. illness. Utile Majors, often hurt, had, had a discouraging sophomore
warden when hwas fit, he, hadn't been able to help much. He
had been a high school whiz, playing under his father-coach, and
now he, began to be assailed by haunting fears; maybe this
league was too fast for him: maybe he was simply too small to
slay with the big bruisers.
The selling job Wyatt did to restore Majors' confidence, to get
him to think in terms of short, but sure, steady gains, Instead of
the long, break-away thriller, had splendid therapeutic results. It
paid off in an Improved '55 season and even better one this year.
And it's probably not too much to say that it led direct Fy to the
Coach of the Year landslide, which gave Wyatt a lead of some 60
ballots over Iowa's Forest Evashevski, the runner-up.
ALL OUT FOR CUPID
One of the first things Wyatt did after taking over was to come
out boldly and unequivocally in favor of matrimony. How much, if
any, this advanced his cause with the coaches, most of whom were
roped, thrown and branded years ago, is a question, that it eventual eventually
ly eventually strengthened his team considerably, however, is a matter of hap happy
py happy record.
Until the new coach openly endorsed connubial bliss, to use the
conventional euphemism, a player who got married, forfeited his
scholarship, i.e., he do longer had a free ride. Among the imme immediate
diate immediate beneficaries, was one Kyle (Buddy) Cruze, a transfer from
Southern Methodist, whose bleak despondency had touched the rom romantic
antic romantic Wyatt deeply ... especially when he learned Cruze had all-star
capability as an end. And it just happened that Wyatt's most des desperate
perate desperate need at the moment was a sure-handed pass catcher.
P.S. Cruze made decisive catches in at least two games that
might have gone the other way this year, and won recognition as
'.he best end in Dixie football. As any one can plainly see, it takes
a lot more than horses to make a Coach of the Year.
