re: I saw Billy Cannon and Joe Burrow play - LSU MBA
I saw both Billy and Joe play in Tiger Stadium. I saw Billy play in high school at Istrouma and saw his legendary punt return against Ole Miss and the touchdown pass he threw to beat Clemson in the 1959 Sugar Bowl. Billy was a great player in his era and deserved to win the Heisman. So many fanta...

re: Good read on 247 about the Cannons & Burrow - LSU MBA
Definitely a good read. It was great to see the strong support of the Cannon family for the Tigers second Heisman winner. Very interesting to hear how much Billy wanted to see another Heisman winner from LSU. Certainly a class act by the family that was much appreciated by Joe Burrow. I consider...

re: Anyone on the board that was alive to see Cannon's return... - LSU MBA
It wasn’t common to punt on first down. But it was a different game back then. The offenses focused primarily on running the ball and the best teams had great defenses that might give up 50 points or less for an entire season. That Ole Miss team held their opponents to only 21 points for the enti...

The upper deck that is part of the southeast bowl. The stadium was just the lower bowl back then and only seated 68,500. But it was loud particularly when Cannon made his run!...

re: Anyone on the board that was alive to see Cannon's return... - LSU MBA
I was there sitting in the southeast corner upper deck. It was a very humid night that made it made slightly foggy watching the game. Coach Vaught didn’t think the Tigers could make a sustained drive against his Ole Miss defense and he was probably right. Ole Miss did punt on first down some durin...

re: Rice beat LSU in 1961 or 1962/ - LSU MBA
Rice beat LSU 16-3 in the first game of the 1961 season. The game was in Houston. That 1961 LSU team went on to win 10 straight games and beat Colorado in the Orange Bowl. Rice also tied LSU 6-6 in 1962 and beat the Tigers 21-12 in 1963. Rice was a good team under Coach Jess Neely during that pe...

re: Was anyone on here actually at the Halloween Billy Cannon punt return game? - LSU MBA
I was 13 and sitting in the curve of the SE upper deck in what is currently section 412. It was a warm and very humid night to the point of almost being foggy inside the stadium. As others have said it was a defensive struggle. Coach Vaught was confident that the Tigers couldn't score against his ...

re: RIP Curtis Dawson - LSU MBA
I got to know Curtis when my son played football with him at Hoover. He was certainly one the best players to come out of Hoover during the Rush Probst tenure. More importantly he was a fun loving guy that everyone enjoyed being around. Very sad to hear of his passing. RIP Curtis - you will be m...

re: Old San Juan, Puerto Rico - LSU MBA
El Convento is a great hotel in the heart of Old San Juan. It is pricey but staff is helpful and the hotel offers special rates that include walking tours of OSJ with admission to the old forts that are worth visiting. The Marmalade is a top rated restaurant in OSJ and definitely worth a visit. T...

re: Were any of y'all at the 1959 Ole Miss - LSU game? - LSU MBA
I was there sitting in the curve of the upper deck of the south end zone. It was a warm and very humid night. Ole Miss kicked a field goal in the first quarter. Neither team could move the ball very well against the strong defenses that both teams had. Coach Vaught didn't think the Tigers could ...
