    t has been a year and four days since USC traveled to South Bend, Ind., to play a game so memorable that the parking pass from it still warrants a thumb-tack posting on your office wall.

    It was the type of mid-October surprise that graces amateur enthusiasts about twice a lifetime, a perfect pairing marriage of anticipation and outcome.

    Grantland Rice, called back from the grave, may not have been able to do it justice. "Outlined against Weis' blue-gold windbreaker … ah, I can't write this. -30-".

    A selective memory recalls:

    • How short Notre Dame Coach Charlie Weis' hair was compared to the grass.

    • ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, trailed by his entourage, calling attention to himself in the pre-game hallows outside Notre Dame Stadium.

    And then, minutes later, Joe Montana, with arm draped around wife Jennifer, walking unimpeded through the same air space..............

    Please...
    All these NYT-LAT links... they're worthless without passwords...
    Nothing personal, Poinsy, but can we start posting copy instead of links when we do this? Same thing goes for the OJ post...
     
  3. And the point is -- and we have to take Dufresne at his word that SAS was "calling attention to himself." How? -- what? That a current television personality causes more of a buzz on a college campus than a guy who played quarterback there almost 30 years ago?

    I did post the copy. What more do you want?

    Dufresne is solid. SAS should never have an entourage anyway. He shouts enough for everyone to know he's there.

    Well, its over 5500 characters, and that means multiple posts on the SportsJournalists.com board, which means cutting and pasting over several posts... While the rest of the article has no relevance to the Dufresne rip, which was the purpose of the thread.

    Just go to www.bugmenot.com and get passwords for these papers.

    I'll fly Dufresne over to Slappy's house to not only recite it, but give Slappy his backround notes.

    Believe SAS was traipsing around with a couple of bodyguards.

    Is that pretentious horseshit, at P Diddy (I wanta be a tough guy, but it ain't easy) levels?

    Yep.

    What does a journalist need bodyguards for? Unless they were there to gently explain
    football to him . . .
