Single Wing!  Maybe Drake should return to that offense until they are able to throw downfield more effectively.

I think that was Warren Gaer's only winning season after the Johnny Bright incident.  Drake's independent status surely made recruiting difficult. And D was apparently making plans to de-emphasize football with the new "college division" in 1959.

However, Gaer was gone before the '59 season.  Not sure he stayed in coaching.  Kinda sad.

A frequent participant in Sun Bowls during that era was Hardin-Simmons.  If the NCAA creates a path for D-III schools to reclassify directly to D-I (reportedly in the committee process at this moment), could we see HSU in D-I?  They would still need a conference invitation...the WAC might be interested.  PFL for fb?
