My three prized football cards, in the beginning, we're Bobby Mitchell, J.C. Caroline, and Ernie McMillan. I've always felt they should have received more respect from the university and from us.

My second memory of Illinois football. Bobby Mitchell ran for 186 yards and Illinois upset #1 Michigan State on homecoming. Two of the runs were for 80 plus yards.
Man I'm getting old.
What a memory to have. Lucky man.

I'm getting old, too. I remember attending that game. Was living in Michigan at the time which made the upset even more sweet.
