I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that next Friday is already the last day of classes! Here’s some sound advice for students:
The cartoon was drawn by Jack Glenn ’22, seen here arriving at the airport for Homecoming in 1951. He really turns out to be an interesting guy even apart from his newsreel fame. I’ll have more on him later.
Bonus: I don’t think of myself as a small person but I look small here. That’s me right behind Coach Bailiff, in the white cap (with sweet headphones). If I’m not mistaken this photo was taken right before I called a pass play that resulted in a touchdown.
Nice call on the touchdown pass, Coach Kean. Hope you can come up with more like that before the 2016 season opener.
You are not alone! At 6′, 200# no one has ever called me small, but I feel like a dwarf when I’m among young men such as these. And as I’m sure you learned, they are not just big; they are smart, disciplined and dedicated, too. They give one confidence in the future of our country. The Rice community is not nearly supportive enough of our student-athletes, men and women, in all sports. Let’s get out and support the Owls. They don’t always win, but they always compete and give it all they’ve got!
