Frank, didn't Burl Toler play football with Ollie Matson at USF when that team was to play in a bowl game down south? If I remember correctly, the African-Americans would not be permitted to play there, so the whole USF team voted to just stay home and give up the chance to play in that big game.
Somewhere I saved an article written by Carl Nolte on the 50th (?) anniversary of that ugly time and the wonderful stand taken by that team.
