Football Said No Longer Played As Team Game By ED SAINSBURY CHICAGO Aug 6 If Ku harich said Wednesday that foot iaU his vocation and avocation is no longer a team game It used to be he said Back when I was playing in college it Aas a team game A player had o be at a certain place at a cer ain time and so on But now its matching individu il abilities against individual abili ies as part of team play Kuharich is a football perfection st and his insistence upon hard vork and conditioning as part of he game has caused him to lose ome prospects from his Chicago Cardinals training camp roster Well be in good shape for the Mason It nothing else he said But the boys reported in pretty good condition and now theyll stay that way Kuharich prepared for the cam aign harder than any of his play ers He took the job in January iince then hes studied every Car linal game movie available chart the actions of every player and has come up with some conclu iions Jts a matter of mistakes in fool iall now he said Everybody as got material good enough to1 win Iri material all the teams are so evenly matched that on one Sun lay you can beat somebody and the next Sunday theyll come back and beat you just because ol mistakes Kuharich cited last years Cardi l game with Cleveland as an ex ample The Cardinals must have made 5 serious mistakes he said and the Browns earned only one ouchdown But they won 45 to 21 Kuharich denied that he goes n for movies like a lot of other coaches I just spend two or three hours day looking at pic tures he said and we just ihow the boys one same a olftM I dont think Ive seen any lamti of ours more than three times Kuharich 35 weighs between 220 and 230 pounds now far over the weight he earned as a guard at Notie Dame and as player with the Cardinals
