    This is my old thread from TOOS that would get bumped before the UK game. granted it's only two years old but still.

    I was thinking the other day about my first game ever at NS.I was 4 and just remember bits and pieces, more importantly it was the last time UK beat UT (17-12). Seeing is most people hardly remember it or dont remember it all i thought i would take you down memory lane to the year 1984, the last year UK beat UT.

    I thought BTTF was 1985.

    You are right WM. BTTF was '85. I got it confused with Ghostbusters which was released in '84.

    From the photos I've seen, I used to defecate in my pants and struggled to do much more than crawl. Crazy times.
