Long Beach Independent Press Telegram (Newspaper) - August 30, 1958, Long Beach, CaliforniaB-2�?independent-press-Telegram Iong seach icalif., sunday aug. 31, 195f state Moore grids open sept. 8 football candidates for Moore league teams report for physical examinations and equipment checkouts this week but practice does no to Start until sept. 8. Poly and Wilson Are expected to Battle it out for the championship with Millikan Jordan and Lakewood vying for the no. 3 spot in the five team league. First game action for the leagues teams will be sept. 27 in the annual milk bowl exhibition. It will be played on saturday afternoon and All league teams will participate. First regular games Are scheduled for oct. 3. First league games Are oct. 24. The teams play eight game schedules. Ohm Ove i lion dts i�., Nurr i via tic 0 9 a Dave Lewisj Mil the stage has been set for one of the great pro Gridiron Battles in recent seasons and certainly one of the most important opening games in the history of the National football league. No nil opener that we can recall off hand Ever carried More of a a a crucial tag As the showdown Battle Between the pams and Cleveland Browns in the coliseum on sunday sept 28. Because in this instance both the Western and Eastern division championship races could be decided by the outcome of that game. If the rams win and their chances Are pretty Good they could Well be spurred on to possibly a 7-5 seasonal record perhaps even to an 8-4 standing. It is possible that a 7-5 Mark might be Good enough for a tit in what looms As one of the tightest Western division races in history. And most pro football men concede that an 8-4 record is a certainty to at least share a piece of the Crown. A Victory Over the Browns also would give the rams a tremendous lift As they embarked the following week on a rugged three week Road trip on which face the likes of the san Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions and Chicago bears. A loss to the Browns followed by one of their usual shaky Road trips on the other hand would pretty much drop the rams out of the running before one third of the Campaign was completed. A a a meanwhile the game also figures prominently in the Eastern division race. The Browns most Likely would use a Victory Over the rams As the springboard to another division championship with perhaps As Good As a 9-3 record even though the Eastern part of the league looks to be much tougher this season than a year ago when Cleveland fashioned a 9-2-1 Mark. A loss to the rams of course would Cut the Browns potential to 8-4 and produce a More vigorous Challenge from the new York giants who figure to snap this year from last seasons 7-5 a a slump after they had won the nil title in 1956. Thus you can see How critical the sept. 28 opener looms. Neither Side would rate the favorite a role off Friday night s game when the brow is came from behind to win 13-10 on two fourth period Field goals by Lou Groza the second a towering 50-Yard placement with Only 15 seconds remaining to play. Both clubs used their rookies liberally and also played it close to the Vest while looking ahead to their return match. The rams also had such key men As Leon Clarke Art Hauser Lou Michaels and Ron Waller out of action. And used Tom Wilson sparingly. However if i had to pick a Winner of their return game four weeks hence at this time i would have to string along with the Browns. Not so much off their a a win Friday Pight but mainly for two other reasons 1 the Browns Are much farther along in their conditioning program at this stage than usual because of the critical opener and 2 the mighty Brown line had the ram Forward Wall pretty Well worn Down in the final Quarter and figures to be even More effective next month. It was the first time the rams did no to finish stronger than their opponents this season. A a a meanwhile the Browns were impressed with the improvement of the rams this year but almost to a Man expressed the feeling that Detroit is the team to beat again in the West. As one Veteran said a a it a hard to compare the clubs at this time because Detroit Moreno than the rams played everybody against us to get a look at the players. However of of saw enough of the Lions to see that the club has great potential and most of us feel that they should develop More than the rams As the season goes on. A they also were surprised at the improvement of Billy Wade. Although Wade was not As effective As in the first two ram games he nevertheless gave a fairly Good account of Jii self ,. Good enough at least to Lead the Veteran Brown Neman Don Colo to say that a Billy looks More like a Topflight quarterback this year and it looks like he s going to make the Grade this time. He a Learned to stay in the pocket find hell give the rams More consistent passing now rather than in a flashes As he did Colo also liked the looks of Rookie Frank Ryan of Rice during the Brief time he spelled Wade. In the meantime the Brown Camp was highly pleased with the performances of their red hot Rookie flashes quarterback Jim Ninowski from Michigan state and halfback Bobby Mitchell big ten sprint Champ from Illinois. Mitchell impressed everyone with his dazzling runs including two that covered 49 and 36 Yards. As Paul Brown himself says a Mitchell is very fast and he a going to be one of the greatest running backs we be Ever had. Every club will have trouble turning him in. The rams found that out. But a a a since Otto Graham retired and left Brown with a quarterback problem the Cleveland Mentor had relied on his great defensive unit to carry the Load More than his offence. The defensive might is still present ,. And the offence appears to have a sharper Teeth than it had the past two seasons. With an inconsistent air attack following Graham s retirement Brown concentrated on his running game to gain a shall with what is known As a the Sti Giest defense in pro football a Paul counts on holding the opposition to a minimum score while his running attack and Grozav a kicking a produces enough Points to win. Mitchells great outside running combined with Cleveland a tremendous threat up the Middle in fullback Jim Brown will make the Browns running attack even More dangerous. While Ninowski and second year Man Milt Plum should provide the Best passing since grahams departure at least Good enough to keep rival defences a a honest so they wont Jam up against Mitchell and Brown. The Browns definitely appear to be the class in the East. Fate of the rams though depends greatly on what happens sept. 28. Drills tuesday 49er vets show a new look in uniforms Long Beach state College line stars Stan Guzy seated and Don Davis Model new uniforms which 49ers will show off when they open drills tuesday morning for 1958 football staff photo by Roger Coar 49ers to feature new look by Jerry Wynn from a new head coach to a new marching band i Here la be a new look on the football front at Long Beach state College this season.
