Buffalo was coached by Russ Carrick who found some success while playing for Colgate a decade earlier. As a coach he was not nearly as effective.

Carrick's four year span at Buffalo was one of the schools worst periods. Coach Carrick owns the longest losing streak in school history.

He coached Buffalo from 1924 to 1928 and won just five games. His career record was 5-30-2. His 1926 Edition want 0-7 losing to cross town rival Niagara 60-0.

Gov- Al Smith

Al Smith was the four time Governor of New York State and the Democratic U.S. presidential candidate in 1928, the first Irish American to be nominated by one of the political parties for that office.

Part of his legacy is that he was linked to the notorious Tammany Hall machine that controlled New York City's politics.
