    I imagine plenty of my Vols starred, right?

    best team among the three Division 1 teams which didn't qualify for a bowl... Auburn and Eastern Michigan were the other two.

    Strange how it was so quiet there. Almost like there wasn't a crowd at all.

    The Blue team won; the Gray team will spend the next 150 years insisting things happened differently. Also, they'll refer to the game as "The All-Star game between the two colors."

    You mean "The All-Star game of Blue aggression."

    Granny will have the rest of the Clampetts reliving this game for years

    Aw, the memories. I remember watching that game as a kid. Of course, that was before there were 34 --- yikes, actually 34 --- bowl games and you could find decent players whose teams went 6-5 and weren't invited.

    Aw, well, maybe this one is one death in the name of progress that we can tolerate.

    I miss the Blue-Gray game. When I was a kid, both my parents would have to work on Christmas, so my mom would take me to her job for the day. She'd arrange to have a TV put in the employee lounge, where I'd spend the day.

    In the days of having just a few channels, the Blue-Gray game was the best thing on TV.
  11. I remember wondering if the Blue-Gray Game was for players who just weren't good enough for the North-South Game, which was for players who just weren't good enough for the East-West Shriners Game from Kezar Stadium in San Francisco.
    Then the Hula Bowl came along and screwed up my childhood.

    The Blue-Gray Game was for wondering what school a guy played for, since he had about 18 stickers on his helmet at once.
