One week later, I was in Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge watching 3-7 Tulane beat 6th ranked, Orange Bowl bound LSU 31-28. Even my brother, who went to USM, said it was the best game that he's ever seen.

That's an astonishing two-fer. Just curious, why were you in San Francisco one week and Baton Rouge the next, with Thanksgiving in between? 04-cheers

BTW, i remember 11/27/82. I was living in Tampa then and skipped watching college football to attend a concert by The Who in Orlando. The B52s and Joan Jett opened. It was at the Tangerine Bowl, which I guess links it to college football, LOL.

Even though Tulane was 3-7 they had a nice run in the late 70s into the early 80s and had a really good program and a tough schedule usually. I'm pretty sure they beat LSU a couple of years before that 82 game as well.

I looked it up. Tulane beat LSU in 79, 81 and 82

That's more elation than I've ever seen in pretty much any stadium in the last 10 years. I think they should bring back those HUGE shoulder pads. It makes you look much more imposing.

Both then and now, I had/have Zero connection to Stanford and don't care whether they win or lose. If anything, I enjoyed seeing Karma bite the Indians in the @ss for failure to keep the band under control. And even at that early stage of his career, Elway's aura of whiny entitlement was already getting on my nerves. So I honestly have no problem with the result.

But for those interested in what actually happened, it is a simple fact that one of the refs *indisputably* whistled the play dead when Garner was tackled at approx. the 50 yard line. At most, Cal should've been allowed one play from scrimmage, and that only if Stanford were penalized on the play.

For me, greatest game I ever attended was played the same year as the Cal/Stanford shenanigans -- North Carolina 63, Georgetown 62. NCAA Championship at the Superdome in New Orleans on 29th March 1982. In my memories I can still hear the Hoya fans bitterly cursing sophomore Fred Brown (he screwed up -- big time -- at a critical point) as my Dad and I walked back to the car after the game.

RE: greatest game you ever attended
Not even one of "my teams", but I went to the 2003 Orange Bowl game, USC v Iowa, #4 v #5 in the BCS rankings. My dad is a USC alum and we lived in South Florida, so he got tickets. Iowa (understandably) had a TON of fans in town, and they easily made up 3/4 of the stadium (I still call it Joe Robbie). USC had a much smaller contingent, so as soon as we walked in, it felt like an Iowa home game. Iowa ran back the opening kickoff 100 yards for a TD, and the place was absolutely crazy. The Hawkeye fans were all around us and I thought "this is going to be a long night." After that, USC marched down the field and scored, and Iowa didn't score another TD until the 4th quarter. The Trojans ended up winning 38-17. The Iowa fans were quiet most of the night, and with each score, the USC group got more and more vocal. At the end of the game, someone shouted to us "head over to the band!", and we made our way over there with several thousand other Trojan fans to celebrate. The band played all their big songs and the team gathered and celebrated right in front of them on the field. Just a fun night.

My favorite game I attended at SMU was probably the 2003(?) home bball game where we beat Bobby Knight and his Texas Tech team. The early 2000's were rough years for being at SMU, so not a whole lot of winning going on.
