I was young when this happened so forgive the naive question. Was our schedule kind of pud? Like not KU Orange Bowl pud, but sort of pud?

Our non-con was pud city that year.  Indiana State was 1-AA, Northern Illinois was awful, and NELA sort of had a pulse but not really.

The Big 12 was super stud back then.  Nebraska had just won back to backs, OU would win it 2 years later, we were essentially national champs in 98

The interesting thing to keep in mind about those lopsided scores was we general played our backups in the second half

we outscored out first nine opponents 472-69 for an average of 52.4-7.6. that's just absurd.

I went to the KU game that year.  It was halloween and very rainy!

I made a sign that just had a big "bubble letter" number 7 on it written in purple marker.  I didn't bother to fill it in all the way, but just did like zig zags on the inside.  I'm sure from a distance of more than 10 feet it just looked like a white sign.

‘clams was what, ~6 months old, and he was already walking and buying nudey magazines.  Probably smoked a heater as soon as he left the store too.  :love:

Was also at rainy Halloween game @ KU! That's pretty much all I remember  :billdance:

I was at my Great Aunt Nelly's with my Grandma in Chicago for the Big 12 Championship game (I was in 8th grade) and I cried my eyes out. Aunt Nelly couldn't understand- 1. Why we'd watch a channel that had Bob Costas on it (eff that lib(?), right?) and 2. why I got so emotional over the game. My grandma had to put her in her place.

How was Bob Costas involved with a game that was on ABC?  Was your Great Aunt Nelly starting to lose it??   :frown:

Probably. She just passed away about a week ago. He wasn't doing pre game? For some reason I just remember his name keep getting brought up. Maybe I said I liked him or something when she was asking me why I love sports.

Maybe we were flipping channels? What channel was the Ucla and Miami game on that day?
