Gentlemen;our 1956 squad may have been better than our undefeated 1960 squad.the one blemish due to a series of several fumbles inside the red raider 20 yard line on a dark dreary and wet afternoon in the bowl which allowed the red raiders to escape with a 14-6 victory.

The 56 Colgate game at the Bowl was during parents weekend. I recall some of the fans in the stands joking that the players must have participated in too many family festivities the day before the game as they certainly weren't playing like a nationally ranked team - which they were.

That's one that Ollie shouldn't have lost - but he was a terrific coach and he along with Delaney Kiphuth (Yale's outstanding AD) brought Yale football to a level of prominence that was all the more remarkable considering the newly formed league had espoused a de-emphasis of the sport.
