Still remember the radio games in the 70's with Big Charlie Hall being in the Irish's face all day in Indy and the 60's game at Tulane stadium with a bad TU team that still brought out 41,000 Catholics for the night game. (wink)
Your memory may be getting foggy, like mine. The only time we played ND in the 70's was in November 1971--when Charlie Hall, like all freshmen, was playing on Tulane's freshmen team--the Baby Billow.
1971: that is exactly the day game I remember listening to with my Dad driving in car from Shreveport to Saint Joseph, Missouri. I guess ND had a lot of stations that could be picked up in different states (though radio KEEL AM carried TU FB back then also). Hall's name was being called all day! I just thought we played them 1-2 more times in the 70's.
Anyone know if 1971 was our last scheduled game with the Irish?
Swamp, you may be thinking of our game at Michigan in 1972. Tulane went into that game rated in the top 25, after 3 or 4 wins early in the season. We got mauled at the Big House, but if I remember correctly, it was Charlie Hall's coming out party, as a top flight DT. I think he had a big game that day, and thereafter was recognized nationally.
