Most football programs would fold if they lost 37 players and eight coaches in a tragic plane crash. Not Marshall. After nearly the entire football program was wiped out in a charter plane crash in November, Coach Jack Lengyel and others scraped together a replacement team with junior varsity players and athletes from other sports. Even though they ended the 1971 season with a losing record, they were still badass enough to beat rivals Xavier and Bowling Green, setting the foundation for a program that would eventually return to national prominence.
