Marquette Football Update
« on: April 28, 2021, 08:24:30 AM »
Who recruited this guy?  Buzz?

https://www.fox5ny.com/news/1960s-ny-giants-player-arrested-on-drug-charges

Quote
NEW YORK - An elderly former NFL player is accused of trying to sell a large amount of cocaine out of his Manhattan apartment.

Clyde "Peter" Hall, who is in his 80s, is accused of trying to distribute five kilos of cocaine.

A DEA informant allegedly set up a meeting with Hall at his apartment to pick up the drugs.  A call planning the transfer was recorded by federal agents.

When the informant drove up to Hall’s apartment, the former football player agreed to come out, authorities say.

During the recorded meeting inside the vehicle, they say Hall said would bring some out to show him, and then the other man would bring the money for the drug deal into Hall's apartment to get the rest of the drugs.

Officers approached and arrested Hall and seized a gray bag, which contained a condensed chunky white substance that field-tested positive for cocaine.

Hall had previously been sentenced in 2010 to a 20-year prison term for investment fraud but he was serving home confinement during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hall played one year with the New York Giants.  He was drafted out of Marquette University as a quarterback in 1960 but was moved to end.

Maybe if he got paid what he deserved in college he wouldn't need to sell drugs.

Or he at least would've been able to afford the upfront costs associated with a start up like selling cocaine

MU was really airing out back in those days averaging 28 attempts per game. That was a big number back then.

MU should have never given up football.

It's a little-known fact that Marquette shut down the football program rather than receive the Death Penalty from the NCAA.
Have some patience, FFS.

Pete Hall came to Marquette on a basketball scholarship.  He was one of the top players on the Freshman team.  He joined the football program several years later and quickly became the starting quarterback.  We had a lot of guys on the  basketball team out of Pennsylvania at that time and Pete was one of them.  Others were Jimmy McCoy, Walt Mangham and Jimmy Kollar.

Damn you and that Sports-Reference link.  I'm now way too far down a MU Football rabbit hole. 

Our Cotton Bowl year we were ranked as high as 4th in the country.  Went 7-2.  Started off undeated then lost to #20 Duquesne 13-0 before losing to #16 TCU 16-6 in the Cotton Bowl.

Beat Wisconsin 12-6

Our 1935 team was pretty good too:

7-1.  Never ranked though. 

Beat Wisconsin (33-0)
Beat K State (we may have a winning record vs them)
Beat SLU (Natch)
Beat Ole Miss (SEC!)
Beat Iowa State (No wonder they pillage our rosters now)
Beat MSU (JOEY!!!)
Lost @Temple
Beat Creighton (We always beat Creighton)

Other random observations:

We played Pacific a lot
We played BC a lot, at one point BC was listed as Non Major
Played MSU a bunch
Notre Dame was always ducking us

We went undefeated in 1930

But not ranked.  We beat 4 "non major" teams: Lawrence, Ripon, Boston College, Butler.  Our Major wins were @Grinnell, Drake, @Creighton, Iowa and we Tied Detroit Mercy.

So we had 3 good years?

Even if it was from the bad years in the 1950s, is there any game footage anywhere? Even just highlights?

You have to think the Libraries would have something.

The 40's and 50's were not kind to MU.  We even pulled a DePaul.  Frank Murray left us for UVA and then we hired him back.

And we brought back Lisle Blackbourn after he flamed out with the Packers (and coached a year at Carroll).

Return to football and you've got ready-made opponents in Butler, Georgetown and Villanova, with three non-scholarship Div. I teams (St. Thomas, Drake, and Valpo) within driving distance of Valley Fields.

You would think so, but Butler, Georgetown and Villanova don't seem to play each other at all.
