Attending the 1984 Illinois game in the Shoe with my Dad a couple of weeks before my 13th birthday. Keith Byars running for 274yds and 5tds, including the legendary 67yd td when he ran out of his shoe. His 3rd td where he dove for the left pylon in the closed end of the Shoe was right into our laps. The camera man was standing right in front of us, and this play was featured on the CBS lead in to college football for years. I've never seen 1 man take over a game like that, before or since. A great team with the likes of Mike Tomzack, Chris Carter, Mike Lanese, Peper Johnson, Jim Lachey, etc. That was the day I was baptized into the religion of CFB.
