1961 LSU 10-7over Ole Miss. I was 6 yrs old, man was it loud.
1961 LSU 10 Ole Miss 7 Ole Miss came into Tiger Stadium ranked #1 in the nation, but an inspired Tiger Team rallied with a second half touchdown by Wendell Harris. Paul Dietzel said that "I hope the boys on the 1958 and 1959 teams forgive me, but this is the greatest win I have ever been associated with."
1968, I guess. Family would gather round the radio to listen to the games. After the game, I'd be on the neutral ground in front of our house reenacting the games. A kid could do that back then at 11pm, lol. My neighbors had season tickets and one Saturday morning in 73 asked if I would like to go with them to the LSU-Bama game. We both were undefeated and Johnny Musso and the Gumps beat us 21-7. They brought me every week til I graduated HS. Hooked immediately, went to school there and now have kids there!!!

Born in '70, but recall the '77 season and have been following ever since. I remember the 77-0 win over Rice that season....Carlos Carson's 5 catches, all for scores. Got to play in TS in '79 with my BREC pee wee football team prior to a home game for the Tigers.
