Sports Illustrated Archive of 2000 NC Game

I am getting awfully antsy with the game looming now and while looking around at various blogs, I stumbled across the Sports Illustrated archive.  They provide free access to lots (maybe all) of their past articles and highlighted on their CFB page was the article detailing the NC game from 2000. 

 

Take a look - I am not sure it settles my nerves - but it brings back lots of memories.   I watched that entire game on a (maybe) 12 inch B&W TV as I was at my in-laws out in the country and all they had was satellite and no local channels.  They were nice enough to fetch the antique TV from somewhere and we strung together an antenna that picked up the ABC signal.

Sooner Boomers - Near-perfect execution by a crunching defense clinched an unbeaten,

untied, unbelievable season for Oklahoma - Austin Murphy - January 8, 2001

Favorite quote:

"That debate, mercifully, is moot. The Sooners, who entered the Orange Bowl as 11-point underdogs, are the undisputed champions, having pulled off perhaps the most stunning postseason victory since Penn State picked off Vinny Testaverde five times to beat Miami in the 1987 Fiesta Bowl. That Florida State was listed as such a heavy favorite didn't offend the Oklahoma players as much as make them feel comfortable, for the Sooners hadn't been favored in most of their other big games this season. "If the oddsmakers decided who won," said Stoops two days before the Orange Bowl, "we'd be 7-4."
