Experimental: Neoadjuvant radiation followed by FOLFOX
Radiation - 20 Gy in 5 fractions to regional nodes. 25 Gy in the same 5 fractions to macroscopic disease. This is given over 1 week.
FOLFOX Chemotherapy - after two weeks rest - oxaliplatin 85 mg/m2 and leucovorin 400 mg/m2 IV/2 hours followed sequentially by 5FU 400 mg/m2 IV push and 5FU 2400 mg/m2 over 46 hour CIVI. Repeat ever other week for a total of 4 courses (this equals 6 weeks).
If 5-FU is unavailable -- oral capecitabine can be given as 1000 mg/m2 BID on days 1-7 every 14 days.
Radiation: External beam radiation

- Rate of T Stage Downstaging [ Time Frame: Mean number of weeks before surgery 17.3 (SD +/- 2.9 weeks) ]T stage downstaging is defined as clinical pretreatment American Joint Committee on Cancer T stage (cT) being greater than pathologic T stage at surgery (ypT).
- Preoperative Gastrointestinal Morbidity [ Time Frame: Mean number of weeks before surgery 17.3 (SD +/- 2.9 weeks) ]As measured by participants who experience grade 3 or higher gastrointestinal morbidity
- Incidence of Any Late Grade 3 or Higher Morbidity [ Time Frame: Preoperative (mean time from start of radiation to surgery 17.3 weeks (SD +/- 2.9 weeks) ]
- Incidence of Post Chemoradiotherapy Grade 3 or Higher Morbidity [ Time Frame: 1 year (completion of all treatment) ]
- Local Control [ Time Frame: 30 months ]
- Kaplan-Meier projections
- Local control = control of primary tumor
- Rate of Overall Control [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Rate of Locoregional Control [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- Freedom From Disease Relapse [ Time Frame: 30 months ]Kaplan-Meier projections.
- Determine Quality of Anorectal Function [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ]Anorectal function was measured by the participant's response to the FACT-C questionnaire question "I have control of my bowels". The answers ranged from 0=not at all to 4=very much.
