Friday Night Lights

Would the modern day UWRF football team be able to beat this group of toughs? Half the team looks like Jim Thorpe's brother and the other half looks like they just got done plowing. Of course the average weight then was probably 180 and today, about 260. Advantage: Now.

I love this photo. It reminds me of that scene in "Dead Poets Society" where the boys are looking at the old pictures. As for who's tougher...well, the guys in your shot played without helmets!
