Today's photo is from 1937 showing Frank Howard (far right) with some of the team looking over a write up of their game with Florida, where the Tigers won 10-9 in Gainesville, FL. At the time Frank Howard was an assistant coach while Jess Neely was the head coach for the Tigers.

An interesting twist of fate about this game was that Florida's head coach was Josh Cody, the former Clemson head coach. Cody had a 29-11-1 record at Clemson, but after he left the Tigers, he never had a winning season again. Even after not having a head coaching position for 15 years, Temple thought they would try putting the now elderly Cody in charge of their football team in 1955. The result was a 0-8 record that year.
