The one that got away...the last defensive series against LSU in the Dooley era.

The refs should have assessed a 15-yard penalty on the LSU player that removed his helmet while still on the field in the ensuing chaos.

"As the left-handed Shula rotated his shoulders back and raised his arm to release the pass, Jones continued rushing in, closing within about eight feet of the Alabama quarterback. Jones raised his arms, hoping to swat the pass down, and timed his jump with the flight of the ball. As he batted the ball and began tracking its fluttering flight directly above his head, as he was falling to the ground, Jones was able to reach up and grab the ball, hugging it close to his chest as he hit the turf."

October 19th, 1985...............@ Birmingham

I do like those,:cool:but that was a moment in my childhood that I will always remember. I was 15 and in Starkville with a friend at the MSU/Tulane game. Guy next to me in the stands was listening to the game and let me listen.
That’s awesome. Glad you were able to hear the game with the cowbells going. I’ve never been to Starkville, but I bet it was something back in 1985.

Edit: I’m with you on the uni’s . Those are sweet.

From 1979-1986......His family would take me to two State games a year, and we would take him to one game in Knoxville and one game in Tallahassee. Fun times! Got to see some amazing games and players.

That sounds awesome. I guess that’s when Bowden was starting to turn FSU around. Had to be a great time around Tallahassee.
