The Greatest QB!
In those days (from the beginning of the Holiday Bowl and for a number of years)
we had tickets to "The BYU Bowl" and enjoyed every one of those games. But when
Robbie came in after having been helped off the field, hardly able to walk, let
alone run and look for receivers, that touchdown pass had to be one of the
gutsiest plays in all of college football bowls. And that was when every team in
America had at least a chance to earn a bowl bid. Them's were da good ol' days!
Too bad there wasn't a BCS game to play in. To be one of 10 teams invited is
the highest honor. Amazing season and a great game.
I won't say that it didn't count... but in 1984, there wasn't a NC game. There
were just bowl games.
Oh, no - someone mentioned the National Championship team of 1984 - look for the
Utefan spam to start littering the airwaves with their favorite reasons why it
didn't "really count..."
I was at the '84 Nat'l Champ game! That was one of the grittiest
performancs/games I've ever seen Bosco was amazing that night! Thanks for
memories, my friend!
