Notre Dame put Rockne's picture on the cover of this program, but it didn't scare Carnegie (then known as Carnegie Tech), which was quite the football powerhouse in the 1920's. Smaller roster sizes and a far more geographically restricted recruiting base back then enabled smaller schools to compete on a national level in ways that would be impossible today. Schools such as Carnegie, Fordham, St. Mary's, Santa Clara and even many of the Ivy League schools routinely gave fits to the Notre Dames, the Michigans, and the Southern Cals---and the tenth member of the "Big Ten" wasn't Michigan State, it was the University of Chicago!
