No, you spelled it out quite adequately actually. My thread topic was just referring to college football but you expanded on it and I would agree totally with your assessment of Coach Brooks. I watched that 80 Olympics and was intense with every game that year. I think the springboard game for the Gold Medal was the first game against Sweden. With the USA trailing 2-1 with about 29 seconds remaining, Bill Baker slapped a what seemed to be a 50-ft shot into the net for the game tying goal.
After that tie, I knew there was no stopping them as they proved to themselves they could hang with the best in the world. And they did.
