Exclamation Honoring the 1971 Team During Homecoming


50 years ... time flies. Anyone know why this tweet chose to leave out mentioning the 1969 team? Seems weird.

There's a good enough reason to attend the game.

I mean they were decent. Probably wont move the ball on this defense.
'71 Rockets 9
'21 Rockets 28

I dont see the old bodies holding up to Maddox or Finns speed.

I believe the 1969 team was honored for their 50th Anniversary in 2019. Last year, 1970 would have been honored except for the covid outbreak. Probably decided
to combine the 1970 and 1971 teams, since 1970 missed out in 2020.

They are honoring 4 teams I believe...1990 as well, since we couldn't do it last year. 30 years 04-jawdrop

They were obviously all 3 great great teams but the 1970 team was awesome. Through the first 6 games the D only gave up 18 points!!!! Amazing! I was 14 and revered the team.

Great great memories of beautiful fall days and a dominant UT football team

Go Rockets!

RE: Honoring the 1971 Team During Homecoming
1971 was my first year at UT and the tie with Villanova that broke the win streak was in my first home game as a student. I was heartbroken and convinced that I was to blame for the lost streak. Still, despite the tie it was a great year and . . .What? Really? George Kiem, huh? Guess I should have stayed for that last minute. Actually, I did but that game and the WMU game nearly killed me.
