Summary Chronicles the 1940 phenomenon of the T-formation offense, from the hiring of coach Clark Shaughnessy to his marshalling of the untapped talents of such future standouts as Frankie Albert, Hugh Gallarneau and Pete Kmetovic, and Norm Standlee, to his reintroduction of the out-of-favor T-formation and its profound and enduring effect on football.
