Missouri halfback Bob Stueber was a record setter. When he left Columbia his name filled the school record book. Most points in a season (121). Most points in a career (222). Most TDs in a season (18). Most career TDs (32). Each was a Missouri record unmatched decades after big, fleet-footed halfback had ended his college career. He was the halfback who made Coach Don Faurot's newfangled Split-T formation work during those days of the early 1940's. Steuber was a 190-pounder who could run the 100 yards in 10.0 seconds - all Faurot needed to put scoring punch in his innovative attack. Playing behind Hall of Fame center Darold Jenkins, Steuber led Missouri to an 8-2-0 record in 1941 and an 8-3-1 mark in 1942. It all happened when Faurot switched him from end to halfback for his junior season. Steuber was third in the nation in rushing yardage in 1941, second in 1942. He was at DePauw in 1943 as a Navy trainee. DePauw had a 5-0-1 season and Steuber led the nation in scoring with 129 points.
