Anyone who thinks the offense was the problem thinks of offense differently than did Neyland and Wyatt. Offense was something done to kill time between playing defense and quick-kicking the ball to the other team. If the games against Maryville College, Tennessee Tech, and Chattanooga are not considered, 10 points was a high score for Neyland. The main objectives for the offense were no fumbles and no interceptions. The single-wing met those objectives well.
The loss which may have hurt Wyatt most was the loss to Chattanooga and the ensuing riot when their fans tore down our goal posts. He was also seriously damaged by the much-publicized incident in which he got drunk at a coaches convention and threw another coach into the swimming pool.
I think perhaps the historian thinks all of us who would remember Wyatt have died of old age.
