Opening Paragraphs

Rhetoric Devices

Best offensive team of the time
Members of the specific offense: Miller, Crowley, Stuhldreher, and Layden.
3 years- only lost two games from
The Four Horseman American Football Team
combo of metaphors and similes
The Four Horseman to be like gods
nature vs. human approach
All of these examples give off ethos, pathos, and logos
Ethos is shown through Rice explaining every aspect of the game.
Points to mention:
Play by play sections throughout
Background info
Origin of the Notre Dame Team
Logic can be seen when Rice describes the opposing teams battles.
¨The Army had great backs in Wilson and Wood, but the the Army had no such quartet, who seemed to carry the mixed blood of the tiger and the antelope. ¨
"The South Bend cyclone opened like a zephyr"
Zephyr is a westward wind.
Created through:
man vs nature
Army vs. Cyclone

"But silence fell over the cadet sector for just a second as
Crowley ran around the Army's right wing for 15 yards,
Wilson hauled him down on the 33 yard line.
Walsh, the Western captain, was hurt in the play but soon resumed.
Miller got 7 and Layden got 8 and then, with the ball on the Army's 20 yard line,
the cadet defense rallied and threw Miller in his tracks." Pg. 612 para.12
"It was Western speed and perfect interference that once more brought the Army down."
"Even the stout and experienced Army line was meeting more than it could hold."
More Examples:
Examples of this may include any mentions of yard lines and actual team play.
Another Example of Ethos
Described from the Last Testament of the bible, Jesus Christ opens the first four seals on the book of god's right hand, which summons 4 horseman. The horseman basically bring upon the apocalypse or judgement day.
