It’s a mess on campus today, between Families Weekend and preparations for the game with Army tomorrow. I skedaddled as soon as I could. But here, courtesy of loyal reader Nancy Burch, we have the prize-winning float from Homecoming 1958, a pointed mockery of the Army football team. The image is a bit blurry but I think there’s a laundry theme going on, with what I believe is an Army player being fed through a wringer. At least I think that’s a wringer, an appliance of which I have only the dimmest recollection:
This would be much better if we had won.
