    Re: 40 Years Ago Notre Dame and Alabama played for it All

    I cried in the 1975 Orange Bowl when Richard Todd threw a last second interception to seal the loss to Notre Dame 13-11....

    I was at the Sugar Bowl and the following year in the Orange Bowl for both losses to Notre Dame. We owe them BIG time.

    Is that the game where Bryant's intense film study actually worked against him? I'm thinking of ND's pass to the TE late in game - it wasn't tightly covered because Bryant knew that they hadn't thrown to him the entire year.

    You are right! However, at least Cornelius Bennett got us some redemption with "The Sack" in the 1986 win vs ND.

    That's the one. I remember watching my Dad's Crimson hounds tooth hat with the original "In Your Heart, You Know We're Number One" button go sailing over the upper deck ledge.

    Interesting! I just did a prenup for a couple forging a second marriage as widow and widower and one of them had to sell a house on Marco Island. Second time I've even heard the name...

    Revenge. Notre Dame has a lot coming if that is indeed how it plays out, start paying them back for the titles they took from us!

    Poor old Lou Holtz will be in 7th Heaven. He can cheer for his old team, and cheer against us at the same time.

    I get to say that I sat on the 35 when Perkins Alabama team played ND.
    I was so hoarse I couldn't talk for two days.
    Got to confess that I've always been a Perkins fan. IMO: He just came along at the wrong time...

    I was 16 years old, my dad had moved us from Mobile to New Orleans a couple of years before, and we were at that game. What a gut wrencher. I still want some payback all these many years later. Krymsonman

    It was actually 1986 .

    It's just out from Naples and the West Palm Beach of the west coast, lots of eagle nests, very expensive. Hotel rooms around $1200 a night.

    My main beef with Ara is his comments as a analysis for ABC, the Most bias announcer ever worst than Holtz.

    Its the arragonce that gets them.
