Sitting on the bench, Duke's Coach Wallace Wade watched his team struggle against Georgia Tech, who had "been unscored on while scoring 119 points in its first three games" (32) to finally beat GT 20-19. Wallace's teams had appeared at the Rose Bowl three times, more often than any other Southern coach. "Just as the South was slow in taking up golf only to turn out a Bobby Jones, so it was slow to take up football...Today, football in the South still differs from football in other sections of the country...but the quality of Southern football wins respect from coast to coast" (32).
