    Too lazy to check. I thought 97 and 98. But I trust you. Thanks for correction.

    I was at the 2004 game. That 99 yard drive started right where we were sitting. The quarter changed during the drive and then it finished right where we were sitting. Awesome!! One of the all-time great drives IMO. We needed it badly IIRC since TSUN had the momentum at the time...Loved seeing Brandon Joe beat some TSUN ass while digging us out of that hole...Of all the games I've been to, this memory (and the TGII punt return the same game) is still one of my, well, most memorable...:p

    It was 99 and 98. I remember turning to my dad and saying "You can't have a 99/98 yard TD drive without starting at the 1/2."

    I just caught up with each post in this thread from page 81 through 144.

    Now that I've done that, it's time to watch The Game again. :biggrin:

    That's Cornhole! You've been out of state way too long.

    And obviously we needed an official scorer to keep track of points scored by each player. :tongue2:

    While watching the game once again I noticed something I think was exceptional. That was the Ginn td play.
    Robo had just burnt hall for a long catch and run. Then we got 91/2 yards on a run to the 39 . Now here I think the play was not only run , but orchestrated to the last detail. It is 2nd and 1/2 yard to go. We break the huddle so fast that the Meech D has to spread out quick enough to get rattled. We are in a power formation and the fakes of Smith and Wells sucked in not only the front 7 but everyone except hall who was guarding Ted.
    In rewatching it I noticed that every aspect of that play looked as if it planned right down to the final detail and practiced over and over until it was perfected. I think they waited for just that down and distance to run that play.
    I cannot remember the last time I said that about a single play.

    I keep re-watching the game & I can't decide if the pass to Ginn or Beanie's run is my favorite play of the game.

    gregorylee I'd rather be napping!!

    What killed me is that they allowed Ginn a relatively easy release on that play rather than jamming him up on the LOS since he was in tight.

    my favorite was the one where the last second ticked off the clock!

    I was too busy wiping the tears of joy out of my eyes (and fighting my way to get to the field from B deck:biggrin: ) to actually see the last second tick off.

    Why is there no yardage penalty for intentional grounding in college football? On the play where Henne was called for grounding, he was sacked between the 11 and 12 yard lines by Antonio Smith, and called for grounding. The ref said that it was a 'spot foul' and placed the ball outside the 11-yard line, setting up 3rd and 27.

    I thought the ref made a mistake by not marking off yardage. But I just looked up the rule, and it is indeed loss of down, with no yardage marked off. That means it's the same to the QB as if he's sacked right there - there's really no negative aspect of throwing the ball away when somebody is sacking you (other than a possible pick). That doesn't seem to make sense - although it doesn't let the QB avoid the loss with an incompletion, it doesn't cost him anything.

    In the NFL it's loss of down and 10 yards (or half the distance) from the spot.

    I was also in B deck, just not fighting to join the mass of humanity. After watching the replay, I think my favorite moment is @ half when Bernstein asked JT, "You've got a 14 point lead, what do you tell them @ halftime?" JT replied, "You tell them it isn't enough." Priceless!
