    All this hubbub over some QB who got lucky 42 years ago in one game. Big deal!

      That’s the closest the Bears have come to the Rose Bowl in 58 years.


        I remember when they thought they were going to challenge year after year in the early 2000’s, then it all fell apart.

        Good call. It’s better to burn out than it is to rust….


    McKay announced that he was leaving after the season the week of this game, I believe, and the team fell apart. They were ranked # 4 and then proceeded to lose by 14 to Kal, 3 to the Indians, 1 at UDUB and 3 to the gutties in a game that Wendell Tyler must have fumbled 8 times.

    Vince Evans was 35 of 112 passes for 695 yards with three touchdowns and nine interceptions that year, some guy named Hackett made him a far better QB in 1976

      I forgot that Paul Hackett (ack!) was QB coach when Robinson One was there. Man, I still can’t think of Hackett (ack!) without choking a little bit.
