Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Floyd of Rosedale is the name of a bronze pig trophy that is awarded to the winner of the annual college football game between the Universities of Iowa and Minnesota. It is one of several traveling trophies in college football.The 1934 football game between Iowa and Minnesota had been filled with controversy over the treatment of Iowa star halfback Ozzie Simmons. Simmons was also one of the few black football players of that era, and several rough hits by the Gophers on Simmons forced him to leave the game multiple times in Minnesota's 48-12 victory. "What it amounted to was that they were piling on - late hits," Simmons recalled. "I had bruised ribs...they came at me with knees high, and some of it was pretty obvious."show more
