It’s always a blast from the past when thumbing through old college football programs and truly lots of fun reliving the old school sports history .  Having combed through thousands of said programs doing research over the years as I have, you see just as many thousands of player photos and after awhile they all start to look the same.  The one thing that does help to tell them apart a little bit is the glaring difference in hairstyles from the flat-top crew cuts of the 50’s, longer hair in the 60’s, to the assault of the mustache and lamb chop sideburns of the 70’s.  But it’s still daunting and every now and then a photo of a face that seems very familiar will jump out at you and you have to take a pause and verify.  Is that who I think it is?  Yes!  

So with that in mind, I’m going to post a batch that popped out at me during a recent project.  Try to guess who they are and where they went to college.  Leave your answers in the comment section below at the end of the post.  If we can get 10 or more responses, I’ll randomly choose someone who has gotten all of the correct answers and that person will win an Asgard Press 2018 Vintage Football Calendar of their choice.  The hints should help some…  Sound good?  Now have at it and good luck!

5. I have a thing for mascots
