    I'm sure you have the history of the incident that happened at that game. I, even at that point
    in time, thought it very disrespectful on the part of the player. I'll ask you, was the player in any
    manner, disciplined for his actions?

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, Marv!
    It's true that our jg's just a young sandersnapper, but Charlie Bauman of Clemps did no wrong when The Old Three Yards & a Cloud of Duster, a/k/a Woody Hayes came off the tOSU sideline to dust him after an interception return. I recall being in the, er, familiar company of one of our former college cheerleaders when Woody threw the punch that ended his career (nothing like watching a bowl game in which you have no rooting interest in a reclining position with a suth'n belle, especially one who knows the finer points of the game), and it was like we had achieved some kind of simultaneous, er, "moment" as the glee emanated from the both of us at the sight captured on the video above and shown again and again. Clemps' coach at the time was one Charley Pell, probably the most fearsome player pound for pound Bear Bryant ever had at Alabama, a 190-pound defensive tackle so downright mean on the field that Bear banned him from 'Bama practice out of apprehension that Pell would hurt his own teammates. One mighty mean and hardnosed individual, Charley Pell - who, for our sandersnapper's edification, just happened - in his first full season as a major college head coach (if you could call Clemps "major college" back then) - to lead li'lo nouveau Clemps to that Gator Bowl game in '77 for their first postseason appearance in almost 20 years.

    There's long been strong suspicion that Woody threw the punch at the wrong player for ending the game and season for the Bucks.
    It isn't to much of a reach to think ol' Art Schlister had laid a few bucks down on the game and needed Charlie to step up and make a play.
    Hard to believe but considering what a degenerate gambler and despicable guy he turned out to be anything is possible.

    I recently watched a biography about him and never knew just how bad of a con man he was and the lives he ruined of good people that were close to him.

    Hey Marvin,
    We could bet on today's game.
    I'd be willing to put up some Wisconsin made brats and horse radish cheddar.

    But I don't know of ANYTHING from Oregon of equal value!

    After a season of mediocrity they decided to play, at least the QB did not announce as he did last year......
    ”hey Longhorn Nation we’re baaack” and they were, back to another mediocre season. Now he has decided he is NFL ready.

    How about throwing in some Spotted Cow as well.

    The last time I bet on a Rose Bowl the guy from WI gave me 8 1/2 points for
    $5.00. Our UW won 44-8. At the time $5.00 was real money!

    OR has some real scenery when you leave the I-5 corridor. Don't know how to
    value that or send it to you. But ever since the Ducks sold out to Phil Knight I
    could care less what they accomplish with their built in advantages.

    I have never seen Steen Mountain, though we have tried!

    In fact, the only college FB game I have attended is the annual Thanksgiving Day game
    between SDSM&T vs BHTC. Twice!
