First game in the Shoe was in September 1972, against UNC.  A freshman wearing #45 had quite a coming out party that day. Arch had about 246 on the ground.  Who was the tailback (maybe left halfback) that Archie supplanted that day?  I think it was Morris Bradshaw, but who knows?

Three great RBs: Tony Dorset, Herschel Walker and (I hate to say this). OJ Simpson.

I would use Demario the same way we used Curtis Samuel.  Let him line up as a wingback then move to a RB position and give the D two different runners to worry about.

Oh, and throw him the ball on the wheel route too.

The early 60s.  Basketball team had Lucas and Havlicek.  Football team had Warfield, Ferguson and (of course) Woody.  Listening to games on radio and reading of their accomplishments in the newspaper.  Our young brains had to fill in the blanks because the games were rarely on TV.

Draymond Green is the dirtiest player in the history of the NBA. He’s worse than Laimbeer, worse than the hatchet men of the 50s and 60s.

I was screaming at the TV when he was in the Finals against the Cavs. Just watch him; you will see what I mean.

In 1961, we had Maxwell Award winner Bob Ferguson at FB, flanked by future NFL stars, Paul Warfield and Matt Snell, at the 2 halfback slots.

Not a bad real life committee. Finished 8-0-1.

You have to put this game from 49 years ago in perspective.  The Lakers then had Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Elgin Baylor.  The Lakers then were like the Warriors now.  

The Knicks were undersized underdogs in that series. When Reed got hurt,  in game 5, Dave DeBuschere at 6’ 6” had to guard the 7’2’ Wilt Chamberlain.

No NBA team since could move without the ball and hit the open man for “better” shot than the 69-70 Knicks.  They were a joy to watch.

The talent around Hoak and/or Chugunov will be a hell of lot better than it was at UK or WVU — if one of them has to go in with the first team.

They will have studs to hand off to, pass to, and protect them at OSU. Remember that before you start the worrying.

OK watch both safeties on the long run by Maryland’s RB. One safety on the play side misses the tackle.  The other deep safety sprints from 20 yards away to a spot far away from the play.  Like he is still worried about a screen pass to the right side, away from the play. Never looks at the ball.  Who teaches that?  So glad Grinch is gone.
