Can the East Come Back in Football? – Strength Magazine – October, 1925

In the old days, when the late Walter Camp first started picking All-American Football Teams and American Inter-Collegiate champions, he only had to see Yale, Harvard and Princeton play to get all the information he needed. During the early years of the game all the star players attended these colleges, and one of the three was always champion and that one was usually Yale. The first outsider to break into the charmed circle was Penn, and, for a number of years, we had a Big Four instead of a Big Three. The spread of the game became so great that no group of colleges could dominate it, although the East was supreme until at least the end of the Haughton regime at Harvard.
