Re “USF renames residence hall for football hero Burl A. Toler,” May 25:

Burl Toler is certainly worthy of being honored by any institution with which he was ever affiliated. But when USF talks about the 1951 football team, it always strikes me as more than a little hypocritical. The university dropped the football program after that season. Wasn’t that a bigger snub than their not being invited to a bowl game?
