VIDEO: UM Football's first playoff game

Postby bainsey » Sun Sep 03, 2017 1:51 pm

Dunbar discovered this little gem. A Georgia Southern football fan started posting games on YouTube, including Maine's first ever NCAA playoff game, a 1987 battle against GSC (now GSU).



Some notes:
*Look how far Mike Buck dropped back to pass! When you have an arm like that, I guess it doesn't hurt to get a better look at the secondary.
*You'll see two very different halves. Maine had a 28-10 halftime lead, before losing 31-28 in OT.
*Check out GSC's game-tying TD at 1:58:25. I remember thinking it came off an illegal forward pass, but don't recall anyone making a big deal about it. After seeing this video and the slow-mo replay, I maintain my belief. Thoughts?

Enjoy.

Who cares about 30 years ago? I sure don't.

Who cares about today's Charmin's brand of sports? I sure don't!
