The 1995 tie against USCe. Was the first time I actually watched an entire LSU game and I’ve been hooked ever since.

listening on the radio to our 3-0 loss to Notre Dame in South Bend in 1970, and then our revenge in '71 on national TV (very rare in those days) where we won 28-8.

Watching the USC game on TV. This was 3 years before I even had a thought of going to LSU.

Listening to Bear Bryant whoop Charle Macs arse on the radio like a stepchild. Then going to Tiger Stadium and seeing it live. Sound familiar?

For me, it was 1952 or 53, and the Black Stallion walked through my front door. He was dating my sister. I was hooked on LSU football starting that day. He died a short time ago, but I remained friends with him my whole life. He was a great LSU running back.

Now, that's beyond cool. Gave me goosebumps.

1968 Peach Bowl vs. Florida State (on TV) ... a rainy night and muddy field. Ron Sellars, Bill Cappleman vs. LSU defense.

In person ... at home vs. Auburn in 1969. It was the last day game played in Tiger Stadium until 1977. Anyone who witnessed this classic was hooked for life.

I have some memories of Bert Jones and Tommy Cassanova playing but the game that turned me into a true blue diehard Tiger fan was the 1979 game where LSU took #1 Bama to the wire in a 3-0 loss.

Sitting next to my dad in the den as he made over 100 calls trying to get LSU/O.Miss tickets, Cannon's punt return for the winning TD. NO tv back then & he finally got 2 tickets, our seats were on the front row, South end zone right between the goal posts. Saw Cannon's run from that perspective but we had a better view of LSU's goal line stand, first & goal from the one yd line & LSU,with Rabb & Cannon making the final tackles on 4th down to seal the win.

re: What is your earliest recollection of LSU Football?
As a kid tiger fan in Mississippi I remember reading the Jackson news paper. It was my only connection to tiger football back then. I read about Jeff Wickersham and Alan Risher, the Dalton-James gang and others. They are my first real memories of LSU football.
I have vague memories of hearing or reading about David Woodley and Charles Alexander. Always enjoyed that Woodley was the youngest qb to ever start a super bowl at least up until then. I recently read the story of his sad life after football and his untimely death. Sad but interesting story.

1984 - I was a little shite that suddenly got interested in LSU football and would watch Dalton Hilliard tear it up on the TV. I also remember keeping a scrapbook of the basketball team that year with Nikita Wilson, John Williams and Don Redden...hate that I threw that away as a teenager

Billy Truax in 1961. He was sensational on both offense and defense (Chinese Bandits, chop, chop) and his efforts won quite a few games from '61 through '63, frequently on game saving tackles (a 6-7 home win vs Georgia Tech in 1963 stands out in my memory).
