I recall he had some drug related problems and spent some time incarcerated, just wondering if he had been released and had turned his life around.

RIP Brennan. That's just terrible. He was impressive in the '06 game in T-town and just missed tying the game on the last play (although Shula's offense settling for a ton of FGs certainly helped). As for Johns, I hope he's gotten his life together a la Sherman Williams- he was the dictionary definition of wasted potential.....

Maybe that's why I thought we lost...we played so poorly we should have.

It was tough watching even a win during the CMS years.

Oof, that's painful to watch.
Watch the Duke and Mississippi St game of that year if you want to really see pain. However the Tennessee game still burns because we had it won but we found a way to lose. Otherwise we would’ve been on a 16 game streak with them if we ignore the vacated games.

Easy. He paralleled parked my girlfriend's car when I was in college so she wouldn't be late to class.
Johns or Williams? Sherman's definitely gotten his life on track, hope Johns was able to follow his example. I remember back then the fan base was up in arms because they thought Johns wasn't getting the ball enough...

You had to post that.
At the 1:00 to play in the 3rd Qtr, Bama TE Walker catches a pass at the 8 yard line, and (Shocker!) Bama has to settle for a FG. I Imagine the "jumbo package" went in and Bama ran it up the middle three times, or something equally imaginative.
The Shula/Dave Rader goal line offense:

1st down: Darby up the middle, no gain
2d down: Darby up the middle, no gain
3d down: Darby up the middle, loss of 2
4th down: Field goal

Lather, rinse, repeat........
