Football Friday: “hold fast to courage”

Some cheering words from Coach Heisman in the (somewhat worse for the wear) 1925 program for Rice’s annual Thanksgiving Day game with Baylor:


Go Owls.

Bonus: Where the heck did these come from? They weren’t there yesterday when I left.

    In that year 1925 Rice and Baylor tied 7-7. Good luck tonight.

    Whatever reason they were there, they had some decent bbq before the game.

  5. Thanks for joining us! It was a fun tailgate. Loved the brass band next door too.

    Kathleen and her staff were kind enough to invite this old alum and his companion to join their tailgate where we met a delightful group of six Canadians. These guys make a road trip once a year to see a U.S. college game and a nearby pro game. They would attend the Chiefs-Texans game on Sunday. Rice administration had given them the grand tour of campus, but they still had lots of questions about Rice and its history, many of which I could answer. (Melissa, where were you when I needed you?!) So my thanks to Rice Business for the most entertaining tailgate I’ve ever attended.
