At 3:51 on the right side of the screen, you can catch just a glimpse of a young Thomas Jones.

"All right, here's the play: I hand you the ball and you run up the middle. That's it. Any questions?"

It looks like rugby because it doesn't take a commercial timeout between every play.

Pooch punt at 2:55? Innovative football.

Did they keep score back in those days? This is like something Herm would screen in the film room.

That Yale team was destined for greatness that year if it wasn't for Polio

Yep. He stuck with a terrible quarterback instead of bringing in real competition.

I believe this is a very early version of Herm Edwards run right, run left, run right, punt offense.

They did keep score. However, no one ever scored.

I think I saw Phobia and Bugeater in the stands trying to get an autograph.

I feel like this should have a screen shot with our tattoo guy in it.
