That Booty play still pisses me off. 2 guys to throw to, one defender and half an endzone and he throws it to the one place we have no chance to catch it
He didn't make the wrong read, just didn't loft it enough. There are 2 guys "open" over on that left side, and he correctly chose to throw it to the farthest guy. Our LB was kind of hidden behind the LOS in a mass of bodies, so when Booty threw it his guy was wide slap open. It just so happened that our LB jumped as high as he ever has in his life and batted it down.
I also noticed in that 1987 game in Athens we had yard markings on the field every 5 yards. I know that's kind of LSU's "thing", when did yall start? I wonder if UGA (and other schools I'm sure) liked it and did it for a while, then changed their mind and went back to every 10.
