Who could have predicted a kicker from Colorado wouldn't be as advertised in the state of FL?!???
It was beyond that though.  Didn't he miss like 8 extra points in his first 6 games?  Don't need thin air the reach the posts from there.

Husker fans don't care much for Bentley...........

Scoring summary from the 1994 Orange Bowl:

FS - Bentley 34 field goal, 7:54
NU - Baul 34 pass from Frazier (Bennett kick) 5:59 
FS - Bentley 25 field goal, 0:29
FS - Floyd 1 run (pass failed) 12:50
FS - Bentley 39 field goal, 3:06
NU - Phillips 12 run (run failed) 14:55
NU - Bennett 27 field goal, 1:16
FS - Bentley 22 field goal, 0:21


12 of the 18 points and many think Floyd didn't score

He missed 9 XP in '93 and 16 in his career.  Yeesh.

Bobby didn't allow him to try an XP in that bowl game

'93 FSU kind of underperformed.  Funny to say that about a national champ, but they lost to ND and nearly lost to Nebraska.  They were first in scoring O and D.  Heisman winner at QB.  2 first-team AA on defense.  RBs averaged like 6 ypc.  4 WR had 40+ catches.  

All that and they needed a knuckleball FG from Boston College to go through vs the Irish and Nebraska to miss a FG at the end.

And I think it was like 8 in the first half of the season, and then he evened out.

SFIrish, and all of her classmates, are still ticked off about this.

Lou might not have agreed, but I felt the Noles and the Huskers were better than the Irish in 93

Maybe so, but the Irish don't care. They know they beat FSU (at home, by a thread), and that FSU went and played for the MNC as a one-loss team, but they didn't--also a one-loss team. Of course, FSU's loss was to the Irish, whereas the Irish lost a week later--at home--to a team ranked in the teens (BC).

In the system as it was conceived at the time, FSU and Nebraska were the right choices for the Orange Bowl, but that don't matter to the Irish. They refer to it as Seminolegate. SFIrish was studying abroad that year, so that tempers some of the pain for her, but they are all still sore over it.

Fun fact: first on-campus College Gameday was the FSU/ND game.

Like hell he wouldn't have.  Lou felt the Noles, Huskers, and the South Bend Pop Warner team were better than his Irish, who were just lucky to be in any games that year

Some Most All of the Rudy stuff gets old, but you can't watch this and not get goosebumps.  Cheesy, sure.  But you can pump this nostalgia straight into my veins every fall Saturday morning
