Frosh Bow, 27-19
To Miami Eleven
Gator Sports Writer
Who was number 06? That is a question, the answer to which
will long remain a mystery to the several thousand fans who saw
the Baby Gators go down to a 27-10 defeat at the hands of the Uni University
versity University of Miamis freshman football team last Saturday night at
Florida Field.

Midway through the fourth
quarter, the fans on the East
stands, led by a small contingent
of band members, took up the
cry, We want number 65!'* After
several minutes of this anxious
pleading, and as if in deference
to the fans, Miami frosh coach,
Whitey Campbell obligingly sent
in number 65.
The only trouble was that
there was no number 65 listed on
the Miami roster! Thus, fans
were amused, and not too sur surprised,
prised, surprised, to hear game announcer,
