50 Years Ago Today
« on: November 24, 2023, 05:59:27 PM »
It seems that Xavier’s last football game was 50 years ago on 11/24/73. The end of an era.

Attended that game. After two 1-9 seasons, Coach Tom Cecchini?s team finished 5-5-1. Not great but some late season wins, things looked bright for the Musketeers. Optimism abound but little did anyone know that Fr. Mulligan pulled the rug out from the gridders. Xavier should have done what Dayton did at the time and become a division three program. Falls on Victory Parkway have never been the same.
