    I remember the event like it was yesterday. I liked Rein and feel he could have really done something here. It was really tragic.

    That's a hellofa read. Thanks for finding it, Perple. I remember that morning (I was a HS senior) and knew that the loss was never explained, but it never occurred to me just how big a mystery it was.

    Wow, it sounds like we had a chance at Bobby Bowden if he had not beaten us! What if....................

    "Dietzel had promised a big name and really thought he was going to get Bobby Bowden," Brando says. "If Bobby Bowden hadn't beaten LSU, Bobby has admitted to me he would have taken the job."

    That's one of those "remember where your were when you heard the news". I was with my mom on Seigan Lane at the "new" entrance to the Interstate. Actually Siegan was new too...nothing but woods.

    I no longer feel real young, but I didn't turn 2 until fall of '80.
