Someone's wanting to order 1938 TCU and I'm watching video of one of their games...2 things stand out to me
1 - on FGs and XPs, the kicker and/or the holder would just set his leather helmet on the ground nearby
and
2 - all of the backups on the sidelines are sitting down or laying on their stomachs.

Sort of reminds me of some of those old NFL videos where guys were smoking in the locker room and sidelines.  The game was a lot different back then.

2 things:

a - it makes me sad that when I look up video of basically EVERY recent team's offense, it's the same shotgun read-option thing....who do we blame for this homogeny?  Urban Meyer?  Texas high schools?  There's nothing wrong with the offense, but didn't college offenses used to have SOME variety???
.
b - I'm knee-deep in a big order of all FCS teams, and I've noticed that their school athletic websites are different (and worse) than FBS schools' websites.  I wonder if it's a cost difference and it's so universal that it must not be a school-by- school thing but something larger.

Any web-savvy people have an idea about that?  Why would FCS teams have a different across-the-board website design than FBS and what might the cost difference be?

Someone ordered a ton of 1993 teams, and I'm creating Florida from that year. 
It's the year Wuerffel and Terry Dean basically split time and had nearly-identical numbers.  Most of you will remember him as the guy who Spurrier benched after a 4 INT game the following season, while being a Heisman front-runner.

Perusing the UF Media Guide for '94, it says Wuerffel's 22 TD passes was an all-time record for a FR passer.


Can you believe that?  I guess it's going on 30 years ago (wow!), but still.  The record is nearly double that (J.Winston w/ 40 for FSU) now.

Of course, Florida was still running a 4-4 defense back then because no one in the SEC threw the ball with any ability or frequency.  But that would all soon change....

Had to create 1970 ND for an order.
Created 1989 Florida for myself.
Need to research 1975 Cal for a potential order.

THIS WEEK IN HUSKER HISTORY

1922: A university committee condemns the actions of Clarence Swanson and John Pucelik, two seniors who were found to have participated in a professional game in Sioux City, Iowa, after the close of the 1921 season. Both said they played in the game without pay. Swanson is among the Husker players in the College Football Hall of Fame.

1927: More than 30 players report as spring practice gets an early start.
