Dave Rice. A blast from the past when I was his SID without portfolio or pay:) Had it not been for a letter to Fr. Finlay from the Pres. of BU congratulating Fordham on our football team's rapid rise and asking how we did it, Dr. Reiss's might never have started his investigation until we were filling the Meadowlands. I always thought Dave was following the script from Trouble Along the Way.

You've got me curious in that story about "the investigation" 65!  Please tell more.

BTW: Here's the summary and trailer for Trouble Along the Way

Once a famous football coach, Steve Williams (John Wayne) is now a bookie in a pool hall. To earn enough money to keep custody of his tomboy daughter, Carole (Sherry Jackson), Steve accepts an offer to take over the football program of impoverished St. Anthony's College in New York City. Disgusted with the team, Steve brings in new players. After his first game nets the school $31,000, an investigation into his shady recruiting methods threatens both his job and custody battle



Also...in the trailer watch John Wayne make a move on Donna Reed that would have him thrown out of the NFL in 2016.  The Duke seems like Barry Switzer in this role.

Dave Rice...A blast. We should just leave it there.  One of the great personalities in the history of Fordham.  He's alive and well in Marco Island.

He won before it was fashionable at Fordham.

I'll  let it be. Suffice to say I was teaching in Catholic School in Brooklyn. Then I'd drive the BQE and over the bridge to Fordham and I would be in the office with Dave and it was another and exciting world. He asked me once whether he should agree to St. John's request for a home and home. I told him he should, beat them 100 to nothing and end it. He turned them down and as we fell, they had a few wins at our expense.Strange times.

Oh, that's how you would describe his tenure.  OK.  Some may disagree.

Funny how some erroneously believe the film is a thinly failed story of Fordham.  Very incorrect, as Fordham was far from an impoverished little school in NYC in the 50s.  In fact our academic reputation and finances were in very good position.  And football never reached the depths that the fictional school was portrayed.

Didn't he allow the makers of an x rated film that had something to do with football (or maybe those parts of the anatomy) actually film crowd scenes during a football game?  Or is that an urban legend?

Oh God, please don't use that dreaded phrase. You are inviting a marginally relevant, 500 word rambling story with accompanying video clip, from Steve McGarrett.  Wink

Absolutely urban legend.

The real story was that he allowed an x-rated film to be made under the stands at the historic RHG.  And he starred in it!  Shocked

I thought so.  Can you imagine what he could have done with an iPhone back in the day?  The man was clearly ahead of his time...

I couldn't find if this was mentioned elsewhere but Frank was inducted into the ECAC Hall of Fame.  His part of the ceremony starts at about the 21:30 mark. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU4jlBWOFFY&feature=youtu.be

It was a very mild R rated movie (and very bad)- "Cheerleaders Beach Party"

One of my roommates was a football player who played the entire season in 78/79?, but never went to class- and may not have been officially enrolled as a student. The good old days......
