I guess a "spin off" of the Fyffe thread.
Not meaning to sound like,or even imply "it was better in my day" by any means, but there was always something exciting about listening to your team on the radio.Until the 1980's even, it was rare for a team --even the top ones, to be on TV more than 4 or...

No,but in the late 1960's through the mid '70's is wasn't that unusal for an NFL team to draft a 6'6" -6' 7" guy who hadn't played college basketball. The Cowboys drafted Pat Riley in the 1967 draft from Kentucky and the Giants drafted Vanderbi...

Stanford is a pretty good team and where Ala never could run away with it, it also was never reall in doubt. Seeing what a really ugly,gloomy day it is around here, I was really impressed with the attendance. I missed the call,but it looked like easily over 10,000.
