Really interesting article (at least for old timers such as myself) in the Calgary Herald. Coach Wally weighs in on Jon Cornish's single-season rushing record saying there should be an asterisk beside the record because it took Cornish three games longer to meet the mark set by The China Clipper back in 1956. Wally says it would have also been tougher to get ground yards in those days because defenses were set up to defend primarily against the run. "Everybody ran the ball in those days," he says.
I really like Wally Buono's historical knowledge of the game, which he displayed last year when Joe Kapp and Angie got into it. Wally's take as I recall was something like: "Well, those guys came from a different era, when men were harder and tougher."
Seems like Wally Buono is one of the last remaining links between the "classic" and "modern" eras. I, for one, appreciate that about him.
