I just found it amazing that there's actually video out there of this Salad Bowl game. Apparently Bo Schembechler (later coach of Michigan) was on this Miami team.
I'm way too young to have any connection to this game/era of ASU FB, but I appreciate the history of our program. Seeing color video instead of an old black and white pic brings it to life a little bit.
Some of those halfback passes spoke to Ed Doherty's innovative coaching style (I've read that about him). It's cool to see Whizzer run those sweeps, even if Hayes and Miami bottled him up for the most part.
From the pictures I've seen, Montgomery was huge for a HS stadium (25K seats?). It would be cool if AZ would hold onto relics like this more often, in order to preserve local history a bit more.
