Abstract/Description: The prospectus for the 1965 football season had the following to say about Marlin Briscoe: "The new offense—the pro-set—will feature a passing attack centered around junior quarterback Marlin Briscoe. Marlin (The Magician) is an expert passer who can throw short or long. If he can't throw, he can run with the abandon of Fran Tarkenton, Minnesota Viking's exciting scrambler." From the 1965 OU football media guide.
