Are the game summaries for 1995 and 1996 correct? 1995: DT William Carr stuffed twice at goal line? 1996: DT William Carr fumbles at goal line?
here is this week's miniprogram. let me know if there are any necessary changes to be made. Brink was removed due to his injury, others moved up.
but Carr is listed with one carry for zero yards on this box score here. I'm not old enough to remember this game, but it looks like the fumble happened in 1996, which makes the carries in 1995 seem plausable.
Thanks for putting these together week after week, Lanyard.
William Carr was also a short-yardage fullback as well as a starting DT, and yes, he did fumble at the goal line in 1996. It was recovered by Chris Koeppen for Purdue, one of his two recoveries in the game. I bear personal witness to this event, as I was a freshman at the time and went to the game.
As for 1995, it was 35 degrees or so with a wind chill of who knows what, but Purdue's defense played excellent that day. Actually, here are some of the highlights from our 5-0 win (credit to WolverineHistorian, of course):
Thanks to Lanyard for the programs, I for one have always enjoyed them. And thanks for the research to prove that William Carr did in fact play a critical role in these two games. Pretty interesting, too, that over the span of two games there was a total of score of UM 8 Purdue 9.
great work again, as always - much appreciated
2000 instead of 2005 when Henson and company lost in West Lafayette.
