A new two part video of the game. 700+ yards of offense. (We would have had more points if not for turnovers that killed promising drives.)
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
Johnny on the spot, per usual.
Many thanks my good sir.
Let's see. Our last trip to the Gator Bowl we rolled up 700 yards of offense and kicked the shit out of a team from Mississippi.
Sounds to me like it's our NEXT trip to the Gator Bowl too.
As a fan of both Mississippi State and Michigan, that is nice to see.
for you to watch this year. I assume your alot bigger Mich fan though.
I was raised in Northville and my dad lived in Ann Arbor. I spent every weekend in Ann Arbor from 1979 to 1988. After earning a degree from Grand Valley, I lived in AA for two years, 1992-4. I have been a Michigan fan since the age of 3. I went to games at the Big House throughout my childhood and my early hero was Jamie Morris. The worst day of my life was the Colorado game (forget I mentioned it).
In 1997, I moved to Starkville where I earned my M.S. I have taught at MState since 2003 and know a lot of the football players, cheerleaders, band members, and a few of the football coaches personally. This is a small town where everyone knows everyone. This was my first year with season football tickets and MState has been my team.
that would be pretty hard. But i gotta say Go Blue!
Lets hope for a good ball game!
And yes that horrible day in AA on Sep 24th 1994 was pretty awful!
Go Blue Beat the Bulldogs!
I don't know why this always struck me as so funny, but back when Lou Holtz was coaching Arkansas, the Razorbacks won a year-ending game that sent them to the Orange Bowl, causing fans to throw oranges on the field. The reporters asked Holtz what he thought of that demonstration, and without skipping a beat, Holtz said, "I'm just glad we weren't going to the Gator Bowl!"
Gotta love those early '90s ESPN spray-paint graphics.
My favorite moment from this telecast was when they announced our player of the game: the offensive line.
I'm officially that age when 20 years ago doesn't seem like that long of a time.
I was in the marching band at that time and besides being a much less stressful trip than the three rose bowl trips during my other years (90-93 was a great bowl run...and well, for the band, the gator bowl was not something we were going to get up early and practice for a parade as often) I remember the decrepit stadium (it looked like it was made out of an erector set) and how the entire offensive line was named game MVP. I remember at the pregame rally a player (can't remember exactly who) asking "Who are they to think they can beat Michigan". We were still really pissed beacuse we were supposed to go to the Sugar Bowl but back in the days before autobids Virginia (I think) had accepted a very early bid and then lost their last game
My "Cool Story Bro" from the last Gator Bowl:
My folks lived in New Orleans at the time, I was in my second year of the MMB. They came to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl, and I rode home directly with them after. On the way back, at a Wendy's in Mississippi, I was standing in line with my marching band sweatshirt on.
A guy behind me in an Ole Miss shirt said, "I don't even wanna talk about the game. But y'all's band kicked ours's band's ass." Possibly the funniest thing anyone ever said to me about band.
