In case you are too young to remember the 1997 Motor City Bowl showdown between the Rebels and the Marshall Thundering Herd, the entire game is on YouTube.
But, if you would just like to see how the game was won, our guest on today’s show would point you to this clip:
Recently-enshrined NFL Hall of Famer Randy Moss was a major problem for Art Kaufman’s defense, catching six passes for 173 yards, but the seventh catch was no more after our guest, former Ole Miss linebacker Broc Kreitz, dislodged the ball from him and secured the bowl victory for Tommy Tuberville and the Rebs. We talk with Broc about his time as a Rebel linebacker, some of his greatest memories in Oxford, and what he remembers most about playing against Chad Pennington and the Herd.
We ask him about his thoughts on the team this season, what the problem is for Ole Miss and recruiting linebackers, and we listen to his predictions for the 2018 season. After our interview, we also discuss why some of college football’s most notorious blue bloods are all of a sudden on the struggle bus. Is it the changing of the times? Is it bag men growing weary? Could it be talent is more evenly distributed now? We holler about it for a little bit.
