Schneider was 2 time All-MAC. He was MAC "back of the year" and honorable mention all-American in 1967. Drafted by the Boston Patriots in the 7th round, he spent a couple years with Winnipeg in the CFL.

Biggest surprise so far. I recall him very well but don't remember his achievements as well as some. There was just so much talent on those teams.

Yes. Also became a great DE for the Lions in the NFL and also appeared on the Shark Tank to hype his BBQ ribs...

ok - maybe not the same guy.

Is it also true that he never had a holding call on him called during his entire senior season? Heard that before but not sure it was true. The refs missed an obvious hold against him when Toledo lost to Akron in the Rubber Bowl on a 60 yard field goal as time expired. On the play before the field goal, Williams was about to get a sack when an Akron OL basically tackled him before he hit the QB. Williams got up quickly and still almost got the sack (almost being the key word). the QB got a pass off for a pretty substantial gain that got them in field goal range. The next play they kicked the FG and won the game.

Should be no brainer

That was the Dan Simrell mediocrity period if I recall

Thank GOD for our Seniors in '71! Murph was undoubtedly the worst coach in Rocket modern day history. First to worst in almost no time.

22. Gib Stick

With a name like that, you'd think he was a LB, but apparently played FB and punted.

He came in during my senior year. Actually, my dad used to talk about him and he was even before my dad's time. And by the way, those unis still look better than the flame pants.
