    I don't think so. I think all they will show is what's listed above.

    Also missing is the 1996 CWS.

    Missing games

    I will have my VCR rolling.

    I was a little disappointed that perhaps two of the biggest games were left out.

    1.The earthquake game 7-6 against Auburn. Maybe because it was a defensive struggle and a low scoring game?

    2.LSU versus Miami in 1996 - Warren Morris homerun.

    missing games

    They also could have included the basketball game against UNLV in the early 90's, or the Georgetown game in the Dome.

    I'm guessing that was left out becuase it was one of those 'You had to be there' things.
