Today's Tidbit... Backing Both Blues
Tommy McCall had an unusual academic and football career at Kansas. He played freshman football at Kansas in 1927, left for two years, and returned to play on the Jayhawks' 1930 Big Six championship team.
Academic issues kept him off campus for the next three years. However, the eligibility standards of the time focused on enrolled years rather than elapsed years, so he was able to play football when he re-enrolled in 1934 and 1935. During the 1935 season, McCall was a full-time police officer in Lawrence.
