Legion Field, the Birmingham Americans vs the Southern California Sun. Well,there were other games that night,too. Fun stuff at first and pretty good crowds. But when college football and the NFL got going,they were cooked. Birmingham won this game, 11-7.

Prior to Corbin's arrival Vandy baseball was worse than the perception of the football program. No winning record in the SEC from 1980 to 2002. Unbelievable ! :usa:...

I watched the game and was excited. But I know nothing about the strategy and do's and don'ts.There are probably a lot of other folks that would benefit in a crash course or tutorial as to what to look for in the next game. :usa:...

Probably resonates more with the older folks on here.I remember watching him in '78 when he was 21 just 5 yrs older than I was thinking this guy has it all. Now he's died, just five yrs older than I am. Circle of life can be chilling at times. Here's the clip from the game ending at bat. Epic season...
| SEC Rant|| Tip of the hat to Mitch Gaspard - I-59 Tiger on 6/1/14 at 9:15 am|
that guy has a resolve and finds a way to channel it to his team. I know Mike Martin always fields one of the best teams in America until Memorial Day and collapses, but winning that game down there was huge.
Much like Miles and the Louisiana hurricanes in 2005, I don't think Gaspard gets enough ...

I'm not a real big SEC rah,rah, guy but this just tickles me. Knowing how the SEC's domination drives Jim Delaney out of his mind, I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when the pairings came out. :lol:
And before some jackass chimes in on "baseball isn't big nationally" remember, Del...

| Tiger Rant|| Touching moment before the game with players and special little fan - I-59 Tiger on 5/24/14 at 7:13 pm|
I noticed this little fellow at the Thursday night game and I'm guessing that he is from the BR area as he appeared to be quite the crowd favorite. He's around 10 or so and my guess is he has some sort of affliction. Nonetheless, he is one of the most enthusiastic people at the tourney.

Brother Martin (New Orleans) HS A-A. Now, even though I'm a homer, without a doubt Kentucky basketball > LSU basketball. Gotcha.

Interesting story how this situation materialized.Of course until the 1975 season only the conference champion or 'designated conference representative' could go to the NCAA tournament. So, through the 1973-1974 season it wasn't that unusual for a conference to have a one game play...
| More Sports Board|| Today is the 40th Anniversary of one of college basketball's greatest games - I-59 Tiger on 3/9/14 at 2:08 pm|
ACC Tournament final: #1 in the country NC State 103, #5 in the country Maryland 100. This was the final year of only one team from a conference going to the NCAA Tournament. Even ranked #5, in today's format its conceivable that Maryland team would have been a one seed.
| SEC Rant|| Congratulations to the Florida Gators on going 18-0 in SEC Play - I-59 Tiger on 3/8/14 at 10:11 pm|
Remarkable accomplishment. "Down year" doesn't mean diddle in running the table. From '67 to '91 the SEC played 18 conference games. Kentucky went 17-1 in 1970 and 1986 and LSU went 17-1 in 1981.

Wednesday, February 28, 1979. Certainly 35 years is a long time in sports,but its amazing the landscape of today versus that period.The conference orginally had a tournament from its inception in 1933 basically a carry over from the old Southern Conference days. It ceased after the 1952 season. At t...
