Great interview by Calvin. He is always very generous in his praise of Niagara University. I remember a lot of fear amongst the student body that he would transfer after Coach Maloney was fired since Maloney had recruited Calvin and left after his sophomore year. In today's world, that definitely would have occurred but 1969 was different. (Calvin's" "paying job" for the Buffalo Bills and the Hamilton Tiger Cats may have been an influence.) Calvin really did like the school and the atmosphere. I still wonder what it would have been like if the school allowed some of the other highly sought recruits to accompany Calvin to NU. Most folks today find it implausible that a school like NU could sign a #1 recruit out of high school.
