I'll tell you the winner- Dan Barr. A Duquesne Beer at the Red Ring goes to the first on the Football Forum to tell me who Dan was, what year he played and why he'd be awarded the 2011 Coffee Mug for Past Player.

TYPO!

The year was 1891, not 1893.

And, of course, it was the College of the Holy Ghost.

(Tough morning!)

Congrats Coach L, You win the bottle of Duquesne Beer! Let me know when you are going to a game next year and I'll meet you at the Red Ring to pay up. Maybe we can have a Football Forum Day at the Game.

I never found their record for that first year but we don't seem to appreciate how much tradition we have playing football here on the Bluff. I'd say helping to form, coach and captain Duquesne's first team deserves some recognition.

I agree. Barr is a very worthy choice.

It will be difficult for me to get to any games in person this coming season. My new home here on the Central Coast of California is a bit far from The Bluff!

But please, get the Forum folks together and have a round in my name. When I get back Pittsburgh way, a round or two will be on me!

(It's 72 degrees here today, and it was 82 degrees when I was driving back up here through Los Angeles earlier today. AND I get to watch another gorgeous sunset over the Pacific Ocean from my living room this evening.)
