    I agree, but for 1996. 1997 we lost 3 games and had to rebuild the D line.

    Even Stan Jackson has said numerous times that if Coop would have just benched him for Joe Germaine in '96, they would have played for it all. Maybe twice.

    Maybe in '97 we don't get down big against Ped State with Joe as the full time starter. Maybe we score instead of throw an int in the end zone in The Game. As for Free Shoes, I think that's an L either way. Their D line just manhandled us. Point being, that three loss season could easily have been a one loss season.

    Edit: and now I'm inevitably thinking about November 7, 1998, which makes me sad. Saban and Dantonio on the same staff. The college football world is lucky that Sparty didn't know what they had and let those two leave. They would have built a monster.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Every time I play a round of golf on a nice course in that state for less than $50 I feel like I get a small piece of revenge for that day.

    I was yelling at the players through my TV. You could see it coming. So over confident and nonchalant. Acting like all they had to do was grace the field with their presence and the game was over. So undisciplined I was going nuts.

    I was too young to really get what it all meant but I do remember watching the game and once we went up 24-9 my dad took us out to do something (don't recall what though). We came back and obviously found out the news and that's why I never leave a game or turn the channel no matter the score. It's also why I refuse to yell out "oh this game's over" until it actually is. My dad is really big into that and it drives me nuts... Once we hit 14-0 vs Va Tech he was like oh thats game baby. I'm like for real you had to say that and screw it up? (I'm convinced when you yell things like that Karma strikes you)

    I was in the North stands B deck yelling at the old farts around me to get off their ass and make some fucking noise already...I haven't been in the Shoe since '02, but that stadium had a bad tendency to go completely silent just when the team needed them the most.

    Were you the guy who kept screaming "Let me out of here!", like a 5-year old, the entire time people were shuffling down the ramp toward the exits?

    That's possible, but I remember that tackling was bad against the pedsters.

    I was at tech and let my friends convince me to let them play video games cause osu was up big and no way sparty comes back. We turned it back to the game just in time to watch that last futile drive. I'll always believe the bucks only lost because i didn't watch the whole game.
