The end is in sight. We're up to the #3 spot on the Biggesgt Syracuse Football Wins of the HumpIdiot Era. For the 3rd time, a game from 1998 lands on the countdown. This time it's Donovan McNabb's last second heroics vs. Virginia Tech that earns the honors.
Boss, "McNabb buzzer beater heroics and another swarming of the field by the idiots. Pre-last play discussion storming the field, seconds later we're in a pile in the end zone...a bit scary but a blast none the less. And tack on stunned VT fans...I can't top it."
AJV, "The most exciting SU game I've ever witnessed."
Russianator, "I watched this game on TV, we were throwing some dopey party in Albany, but McNabb to Brominski was certainly exciting."
President Bill Taft, The Sporthump, "Poncho and I had the opportunity to be at this game together (in a non-gay way) and had a whole lot of draft beers, dogs and easily influenced 19-year old lady friends to prove it. I do not know much about the ITT of the South, Virginia Tech, but I now they will remember the name Brominski."
Champ, " The throwback-to-the-tight-end play, how many times did that work in the '90s? Overlooked is the ballsy 4th down QB draw play called by Kevin Rogers. The Idiots are all class....after swarming the field Boss and I ran over to the Virginia Tech corner of fans and proceeded to offer up a Mile High Salute to the stunned Hokie fans. We appreciated their shower of trash upon us."
