re: Why did we play FSU 5 years in a row at home from 1979-1983? - LayupKing
At the time, Florida State could not get anyone to play them in Tallahassee. Bobby Bowden started a tradition for the Seminoles. When they won at Arizona State or Georgia, they would take home a chunk of that turf and plant it on the field at Tallahassee. Soon they had a sizable collection of "scal...

I wonder where he got that information? Dale was not here then. Kent Lowe was not here. I heard Sam King made the trip to Kentwood with Press and Jay McCreary to sign Collis.

Where was genius Jimbo when Matt Flynn was a sophomore and junior at LSU? Was QB development even discussed back then? The favorite expression was ... "the light will go on. ..."
