We had top skill players and speed to burn. We had small, quick lineman. They perfected a style of blocking they called a "brush block" where they made short contact with the defensive lineman by which time the back who would probably also be a sprinter on the track team would be through the line to the next level. This worked great when we were playing the uofa, Utah, BYU, Wyoming of the day. But when we ran into teams like Oregon State with massive lines and fullbacks like Earthquake Enyart we were at a distinct disadvantage.

Now every team has an Oregon State or larger line and we are undersized and we see the results.
