    Quinn looks and acts like a completely different person.
    Like a leader.

    Great (and painful) walk through memory lane. Your memory is better than mine is.

    I have to agree with 365 about the 2008 Tech game although the loss to Alabama in January 2010 was much more impactful for the program, and not in a good way.

    In that Tech game, the room service drop is a play that none of us will ever forget, Earl Thomas’ “whiff” was inexplicable, the poor late game time management was questionable, and the constant holding of Orakpo… assuming (of course) that having your OLs arm wrapped around the neck of an oncoming rusher, preventing any progress, is actually considered a holding penalty in Lubbock by the home team.

    The Freedom Bowl is also a tough memory for me. As you mentioned, the weather was terrible. Jerry’s Kids were absolutely torched by Chuck Long, as if they were playing in concrete boots. My best friend at the time joined me with his wife, who remained in the car (in the parking lot) for the entire game. She wasn’t a happy camper. I think I still have the program for that game.

    On some of these lists, UT is left off the list for some obscure reason.

    Age and increasing maturity is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

    That drop and Craig Curry's dropped punt against Georgia cost us one Natty for sure, and probably two.

    I hear you, Sangre, but Let's also point out that the fumble would not have made the game difference if the offense hadn't settled for three FGs against Georgia. Make that two TDs and a FG and it's till a W (and a National Championship).

    I agree with you here, but the parallels between the two plays are just really easy to see, as are the consequences.

    LC,

    How bad are things in Gainesville? Just today I have received 7 emails from UF asking for money; these include emails from Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerfel (sp), and Barbie (yes, the University president is named "Barbie"). Kinda disappointed that I didn't get one from Tim Tebow YET.

    Sabre? How did you end up on the "preferred BIG donor" list at UF?

    I get bombarded with about seven emails per day on and leading up to 40hrs for the Forty Acres. And not a single one is from VY.

    WorsterMan SEC here we come!!

    73 ou score was close Sabre. Final was 52-13 .... just an awful game.

    I remember where I was watching that 1973 debacle - Nacogdoches. Marty Akins trying to keep us in the game. My former HS teamate LB Sherman Lee was in his Sr. year at UT.

    :facepalm:

    If only he had been told not to field it. And the refs refused to call holding on Georgia on the their last drive.

    I guess this is not a surprise, but what will the result be? I assume BIG and Sec are the only real choices. Will the big 2 fight or collude over the remaining brands? Does any of this matter? Is anything worth 100 million when no one seems to know eher this is going?
