Let's see, we lost to the #2 and #3 teams by 12 pts. on two series and we play in the wishbone bowl while atm and usc play in better bowls. Been this way throughout history, so never expect different result. Hope all but MSU/Ole Miss/LSU lose!

My recollection is that McCreedy is # 72. Bo Strange is # 51. Can't remember Mickey Mangham's #. #40-JW Broadnax, #34- Johnny Robinson, #20 - Cannon #12- Warren Rabb.
All my heroes back in the day!

Had one, but no longer. Your grandad may have retired the calendar in Nov, 59 due to LSU's loss in Nov to Tennessee. I used to have a clipping from the Morning Advocate showing Cannon on goal line for 2 pt. conversion against TN. The ball had broken the plane!
