New find - highlights from Hogs' 1978 and 1979 seasons
« on: January 05, 2019, 01:24:31 pm »

I had not seen this highlight package before.  This is a lengthy video (90 minutes) with extensive highlights covering every game of those two seasons.  There is good footage of Ben Cowins, Jerry Eckwood, Gary Anderson and Roland Sales, for example.  I also love the Hog's red britches with 2 white stripes down the sides in their games at Oklahoma State and Texas in 1978 (I was in the stands in Austin for that one). 

May be boring for younger posters, but I believe "olders" will enjoy seeing these players again.

Brought back memories of the "Tulsa game sunburn" down the left side of every student's face.

enjoyed the video and the multiple use of the phrase "aroused porker defense".  Hopefully Morris/Chavis can get us back to that description of our defense one day.

I didn't know we wore red pants in Stillwater. I thought the Texas game in Austin was the first.

I did like it back when there were running plays besides "maybe hand it off to the guy crossing in front of the quarterback."

Robert Farrell was our leading receiver in 78 with 13 catches. I don't miss that part of those days.

The second half of the 1979 SMU is one of the most memorable. It was the most absolutely boring half of football I have ever watched. I will never forget it.

I did remember the two occasions in 1978 - but was unaware that we also brought them out again in Fort Worth vs. TCU (as can be seen in these highlights).  I guess I was not at that game, though I don't know why (I was in DFW by then).  Usually went to the SMU and TCU games in the metroplex, which came in alternating seasons.

Now that takes me back. Tidbit story: On Sunday evening, the football dorm cafeteria was closed. While going to school from 75-79, I worked as a Hostess at the Hushpuppy Restaurant out on HWY 112 which offered all you could eat catfish dinners. Ben Cowins, Jerry Eckwood, Gary Anderson , Roland Sales and Ike Forte would come in usually on Sunday evenings to eat.  After about season of that “All you could eat” was eliminated on Sunday evenings. ha.

Thanks. This oldie did like to see these players.
