    We beat FSU in 2009. I took this pic probably on a Blackberry. Nesbitt, Thomas, Roddy, Dwyer, Burnett, Morgan.....on and on...damn what a team and a hell of a night.
    I bet 10 years ago we were in a lightning delay.

    And lightning delays too. Was a long long game. And probably the best 'Nesbitt toughness' moment ever when he stole the fumble back.

    9 first half TD's total. Probably would have been 10 had we had time

    You can probably guess
    Looking back at teams trying to defend the 3O after CPJ first arrived is definitely entertaining. There was no one in AA's zip code when he took the pitch.

    Paul Johnson looks much younger. The other thing that stands out is the height/size of Nesbitt and Allen versus the QB's and RB's the last few years.

    Of all my regrets from while I was in school, not going to this game is pretty much at the top. This game, miss state, vandy, Clemson in 08, uga in 08. Killing myself I didn't make it to these games.

    Here's my favorite video from the game (outside of nesbitt badassery)

    What a game and a helluva good football team. Can't believe it has been that long.

    Amazing how easy it looked then, and how hard it looks now.

    That game was lightning. Literally. Figuratively, too, but also literally.

    Amazing play, looking back at it. CPJ putting Allen in motion from the left slot allowing him to take the pitch at full speed.

    In my mind, we got him in some kind of cosmic recompense for Petrino. Fair trade, imo.

    I love to remember how the week of the Carolina game, some douche from CBS was on 790, talking about how Miami had demonstrated that the ACC had gotten a handle on how to stop the option.

    I was just about to say the same thing. We had much bigger players at the skill positions on that squad than in the last several years. After they left, we never had anyone as big as Anthony Allen or Lucas Cox playing A-back ever again. And Nesbitt was a Terminator playing QB.

    They came in with an excellent scheme to run the ball and we kept tripping over our dicks
