General Discussion / Re: Xavier football highligts from 1973

I still have great memories of going to games with my father in the 60s and early 70s.  For a little kid, it was exciting to see the marching band and the players coming out of Schmidt Fieldhouse and on to the field.  Good times.

General Discussion / Club Football Reunion
« Last post by nickgyp on September 21, 2017, 07:25:54 PM »
On Facebook there is a post about a 10 year reunion of the 2007 team which beat Miami in Oxford and won the Midwestern Club Football Conference. Dang I miss those days and recall how I had hoped that in a few years maybe X would be playing in the PFL. Again, what if? But that Miami game video on You Tube has some really nice highlights. Congrats on the anniversary to Coach Powers and team!!
General Discussion / Duquesne edged Dayton in football

Within the last two weeks, Duquesne edged the Flyers in football. Not sure if Duquesne is scholarship football as had been planned. But I keep wondering what if?
FWIW: Ave Maria, a private Catholic School from Florida beat CCU extending the latter's losing streaking that started last season with its inaugural season. Ave Maria was founded by the owner of Domino's pizza chain as a conservative Catholic school. Nothing wrong with that but it is worth noting that the school seemed to have traveled a long way to play a game. Meanwhile Xavier has another fall without football.....
General Discussion / Dan Louder

Ran into Dan at a Hamilton County Police Association event last Thursday night. Dan is retired from the Cincinnati Police Dept; and he played on Xavier's football team as did his brother, Jim Louder. Always good to see a former footballer!

Agreed! The success of BB and the squeeze on season ticket holders may leave some fans looking for an alternative sport to follow at Xavier.

We can keep hoping, but it's going to take an on campus champion to make it happen.

Much as I wish that there was something positive to say about football at Xavier, there is nothing new. Just received a slick Xavier promo with an X on it always hoping some mention of football may be found in there. No such luck. Being a Cincinnati resident, I find myself reading obituaries. Being older kind of does that but I will not muse how odd it seems that people die in alphabetical order. Anyway, Frank Milostan, Sr. recently passed away and it was noted that he was a football captain at Xavier in the 50's. That was before my time attending games at Corcoran Field but I went to high school with his son but had no idea about the family's ties to Xavier football. I can only imagine how special it was for these gridders to have played on Victory Parkway.

And with each passing year, it seems the light on Xavier's football past grows dimmer. I still hold hope that Xavier can experience football again.
