  Otto Graham was back for his tenth and final All-Star Game. No other man had devoted as much time or coached the All-Stars as often in the series’ 36 year history. The Kansas City Chiefs prepared for only five days before the game scheduled on July 31 before a crowd of 69,940 fans. The threat of a strike by the NFL Players Association against the owners had become a reality and following the game the Chiefs disbanded to join the strike. Coach Graham’s team played fairly well during the game, notably on defense. Some of his players that year included Bruce Taylor (MVP) of Boston, Mike Phipps of Purdue, Dennis Shaw of San Diego State, Al Cowlings of USC... ...Ron Shanklin of North Texas State, Bob Anderson of Colorado, Art Malone of Arizona State, Cedric Hardman of North Texas State, Mike McCoy of Notre Dame, Mike Reid of Penn State and Charlie Waters of Clemson.

  Probably the most controversial win in the series’ history... occurred before a crowd of 74,208 fans, gathered to watch the graduates of college football meet Joe Namath and the Super Bowl champion New York Jets in the annual College All-Star Game. Otto Graham was back again to coach the All-Star team for the ninth time. On his team that year were Greg Cook (MVP) of Cincinnati, Terry Hanratty of Notre Dame, Fred Dryer of San Diego State, Ed Podolak of Iowa, Jim Seymour of Notre Dame, Jerry LeVias of Southern Methodist, Bill Bergey of Arkansas State and Roger Wehrli of Missouri. The score at the end of the game was 26-24 in favor of the Jets, but some still debate that conclusion as a misinterpretation of the dead ball rule, which deprived the All-Stars of a legitimate touchdown.

  The Packers in peak form were back as champions of pro football. Also back was John Sauer, now retired, to coach college football’s All-Star team. The two teams met at Soldier Field before 70,934 fans.    Sauer had chosen a team he thought could best defensively challenge the Packers tending to lean toward size in his recruiting. The All-Star MVP of the game was Charles “Bubba” Smith of Michigan State who, at 6’7” tall, weighed in at 297 lbs. Defensively, Smith and George Webster, also from Michigan State, provided the rest of the Stars' defence. On offense, Sauer had chosen 1966 Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier from Florida and Bob Griese from Purdue to fill the quarterback slot. Also on the team were Alan Page of Notre Dame, Floyd Little of Syracuse, Mel Farr of UCLA, and Rick Volk of Michigan.

  Otto Graham coached his eighth consecutive team of College All-Stars. Graham would go on to a professional coaching career with the Washington Redskins in 1966, but would return to the All-Star game in 1969 and 1970. Playing for Graham against the Cleveland Browns were Notre Dame’s John Huarte (MVP), Dick Butkus of Illinois, Roger Staubach of Navy, Craig Morton of California, Fred Biletnikoff of Florida State and Bob Hayes of Florida A&M. The game was played before 68,000 at Soldier Field as a soaking rain fell for two and a half periods, but the contest still managed to live up to expectations.  Roger Staubach suffered a dislocated shoulder in the second period and had to leave the game. Craig Morton was brought in to replace him but with little result. Graham then sent in 1964 Heisman Trophy winner John Huarte, who completed 9 straight passes (10 of 13 overall) with two touchdowns. Outstanding middle linebacker Dick Butkus was never far from the ball.

  George Halas was over 70 years old when he brought his Chicago Bears team into the 1964 All-Star Game before a crowd of 65,000 fans. The Bears were said to have been in a mean mood during the game and several flare-ups occurred between players.  The All-Stars and their coach Otto Graham, though not expected to win, played well and earned the applause of the fans. On the team that year were George Mira, quarterback from Miami, Florida, Ted Davis of Georgia Tech, Dick VanRaaphorst of Ohio State and Charles Taylor (MVP) of Arizona State.

  "...an upset of tremendous proportions"

In
1963, the College All-Stars met the champions of the NFL for the thirtieth consecutive time at Chicago’s Soldier Field. The record stood at 19-8-2, in favor of the NFL.
The Packers back as champions were expected to have no difficulty. But, a crop of graduates refused to be awed by the Packers and an upset of tremendous proportions occurred before a crowd of 65,000. Remarkably accomplished and inspired, the College All-Stars almost brutally defeated the great Packer machine and ran the ball on 35 ground plays to Green Bay’s 25. All-Star coach for the sixth year in a row was Otto Graham. His team was so deep he couldn’t even get 1962 Heisman Trophy winner Terry Baker from Oregon State into the game. Joining Baker on the team were Ron Vanderkelen (MVP) of Wisconsin, Ed Budde of Michigan State, Bobby Bell of Minnesota, Junious Buchanan of Grambling, Bob Vogel of Ohio State, Bill (Thunder) Thornton of Nebraska and Charlie Mitchell of Washington.

  The New York Times called it “a gallant challenge” by the All-Stars against Vince Lombardi’s Packers in 1962. The score, 42-20, did not reflect the difficulty of the Green Bay victory. The game, played before a crowd of 65,000, was one of the more competitive matches in the series’ history despite its final score. Coach of the All-Stars, Otto Graham, had several key players in his arsenal that year including QB John Hadl of Kansas. Hadl was known for his passing skill but was also considered a constant threat on the option roll-out. Also on the All-Star roster that year were Lance Alworth of Arkansas, Merlin Olsen of Utah, Curtis McLinton of Kansas and Bob Ferguson of Ohio State.

  "...Philadelphia had been picked to win as was customary but the nine-point spread was the slimmest odds ever given to a pro team in this series." This team, said to have been the best group of All-Star players in eleven years, included Bill Kilmer (MVP) of UCLA, 1960 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Bellino of the Naval Academy, Tom Matte of Ohio State, Norm Snead of Wake Forest, Bob Lilly of TCU, and Bill Brown of Illinois. But, they would face the Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback, Sonny Jurgensen, before a crowd of 66,000 at Soldier Field.  Jurgensen wowed the crowd at one point with a behind the back pass to teammate Pete Retzlaff as the Eagles proved they were better than the oddsmakers had given them credit for. Philadelphia had been picked to win as was customary but the nine-point spread was the slimmest odds ever given to a pro team in this series.

  In a near repeat of the previous year’s performance, the Colts succeeded again in winning by a wide margin. Otto Graham was back to coach his third team of All-Stars including Don Meredith of Southern Methodist, Jim Leo of Cincinnati (MVP), Don Stallings of North Carolina and Prentice Gautt of Oklahoma. The Colts gained 414 total yards compared to 121 total yards by the All-Stars, which pretty much told the story. 70,000 people turned out to watch at Soldier Field.

The victory for the professionals came off the passing of Johnny Unitas with 3 touchdown passes in the first half and Steve Myhra, kicking specialist for the Colts, had three field goals by the end of the evening. Then, when Gene “Big Daddy” Lipscomb sacked George Izo of Notre Dame in the end zone, the Colts ended their scoring for the night with a total of 32 points.

  "...an all-time scoring high (for the All Stars)."

In 1958, Otto Graham took over coaching duties for the All-Stars and did so by steering his team to an all-time scoring high and by defeating the Detroit Lions, 35 to 19. Graham the series’ most illustrious alumnus, would coach ten All-Star teams in the years to come.
Graham played in the 1943 and 1946 games and came back to coach such players as Jim Ninowski of Michigan State, Bob Mitchell of Illinois and Bobby Joe Conrad of Texas A&M. With such an outstanding win over their professional opponents, Ninowski and Mitchell were both named Most Valuable Player in a tie vote. Conrad achieved his own recognition by tying the record for most field goals kicked in a game and for kicking the longest field goal in the series’ history, 44-yards. Conrad accomplished his deeds without ever having kicked in a game before. Ninowski’s 84-yard pass play to Mitchell set the record for the longest forward pass ever thrown in the game.

In for the first time for the All-Stars was a professional coach, Curly Lambeau, now retired from the Green Bay Packers. One report stated, “His team jelled into a hard-nosed aggregation as a result of a free-for-all that climaxed a scrimmage against the Chicago Cardinals and went on to upset the Cleveland Browns, 30 to 27.

  The coach of the 1954 All-star team was Jim Tatum of Maryland and the task before him was to somehow face the Detroit defensive line with his college team. He forced college football’s substitution rule, which was an attempt to spare his offense from the likes of Lions’ anchor Les Bingaman, who weighed in at 300 lbs.  Lion’s head coach Buddy Parker responded to the ruling by withholding Hall of Famer Bobby Layne (who sat on the bench all night as a spectator in a white linen suit and two-toned oxfords). Parker then started his defensive line with his offensive backfield and gave charge of all to his back-up quarterback. He then stuck to his plan all night. Parker claimed he was saving Layne for regular season play. Back-up quarterback Tom Dublinski piloted Detroit to its 31-6 victory before 93,470 fans on the night of August 13, 1954 at Soldier Field in Chicago. Dublinski showed that he could pass and run in sparkling style. The All-Stars had in their line-up Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Lattner of Notre Dame, big end Carlton Massey (MVP) of Texas and back Veryl Switzer of Kansas State.

  This year marked the beginning of All-Star players returning to the game as nationally renowned coaches. University of Oklahoma coach Bud Wilkinson had played in the All-Star game in 1937 when Slingin’ Sammy Baugh electrified the crowd as the All-Stars defeated the Packers. Wilkinson’s 1949 team had a number of players who became household names in the game such as Norm Van Brocklin of Oregon, Frank Tripucka of Notre Dame, Chuck Bednarik of Pennsylvania and Al DeRogatis of Duke. Notre Dame’s William Fischer was voted the All-Star’s Most Valuable Player. They were expected to show superiority with their passing but unfortunately the score would prove to be the most lopsided in the game’s history (equaled in 1966 by the Green Bay Packers) as the Philadelphia Eagles won 38-0.

  If a pinnacle of excitement and interest was reached in the series’ history, the game played in 1947 between the Chicago Bears and the All-Stars proved to be its summit. The game sold out and then some. The attendance was recorded at 105,840 reaching an all-time high. Nearly 2000 people were turned down as tickets were sold to “every last person Soldier’s field could accommodate.”

George Halas’ Bears were favored to win with noted quarterback Sid Luckman. They had never lost to the collegians having played to a scoreless tie in 1934.
The Bears then won in 1935, 1941, 1942 and 1944. The professionals showed up with new uniforms and, during a night practice, Bears receivers complained that “the glare reflected off their white-rayoned posteriors are a hazard worse than strong light.”

The game was broadcast by 239 radio stations nationally and also by short wave radio to America’s fighting men around the world. Millions of listeners were able to hear as Curly Lambeau’s Packer team defeated the All-Stars with, according to the New York Times, the game’s greatest pass receiver, Don Hutson. The game was played under the best weather conditions in its 12-year history and had a sell-out crowd of 92,753 in attendance at Soldier Field.

1940
Notes
In this game, decades ahead of its general acceptance, the "modern pass" was first conceived.

The contest featured
the 1939 NFL champion Green Bay Packers vs. NFL All-Stars  from the 9 other Pro clubs. The game was played before 18,000 at Gilmore Stadium in LA.
The Packers were coached by Curly Lambeau.

The teams were evenly matched except for Green Bay's Cecil Isbell and Don Hutson.

The All-Stars were led by Philadelphia’s
Davy O'Brien and the Giants’ Mel Hein and coached by New York’s Steve Owen.
 

With :38 to go in the first half... the Packers had a 6-0 lead with and ball on their own 2 yard line. Cecil Isbell surprised everyone by launching a pass from behind his own goal line. Isbell threw the ball 65 yards in the air, and Hutson caught it at the All-Star 35, and raced to the decisive touchdown.

Many rank this pass among the NFL's All-Time Greatest Plays!
 
1940
Notes
cont.
Here's how All-Star quarterback Davey O'Brien saw it, "On that long one yesterday he judged it beautifully."
 
"When he (Hutson) went past midfield, he stole a peek and saw he was ahead of the ball. So he slowed down, slowed down so slowly the defenders wouldn't notice it." "Then, all of the sudden, he went into high gear, swept away from them, and took the ball in full, wide-opened stride at the 35 yard line."

  WHO WERE THE COLLEGE ALL STARS?

The names on the rosters from each game have become larger than life: Bronko Nagurski, Sammy Baugh, Don Hutson, Johnny Unitas, Dick Butkus and Roger Staubach
      Like the modern baseball All-Star Game, the College All Star rosters were chosen through public vote.
 

WHAT WAS THIS GAME vs THE YOUNG NFL, REALLY ALL ABOUT?

The superstars of the early Pro game were showcased in a contest which was viewed as a toss-up. The colleges could be expected to win on occasion, and they did. The first game ended in a scoreless tie and this was not surprising to the press and public who watched with fascination.

The significance of this contest, to the development of the NFL, is much larger than most "looking back" today realize.

 

DECADES BEFORE THE SUPER BOWL...

Imagine...more fans attended the College All Stars vs NFL Champions contests than attended contemporaneous Bowl Games or NFL games.

In 1947 the largest crowd in NFL history on an American field, 105,840, saw the All-Star Game at Soldier Field. When the fact that this was a pre-season game is taken into consideration, those numbers are staggering.
