Slow day got me to thinking about the aftermath of the 1997 National Championship season.
I was an undecided LSA sophomore that glorious year and my memories of most of the games are vivid, but much less vivid are my memories of the "official" celebration when students returned to campus. Quite frankly, the night of the rally at Crisler I remember being so blitzed on Aftershock (yes, I know, not very masculine of me....but I WAS just a sophomore and the rock candy in the bottle was pretty damn good) that my ONLY memory of the actual event was walking there with a group of my buddies and being incredulous that a guy was selling unofficial national championship tee-shirts at the corner of Hoover and Greene for the price of 3 shirts for 5 dollars. "How could that man have been turning a profit", I asked....nobody answered.
From that point on I think I was awake but incoherent. Anyone have any memories from the rally to help allow me to patch in that gap in my fanhood?
