A friend fell and broke her leg during the celebration and refused to leave the stadium until the game was over. Hard core. The EMTs took her away after the final gun.

One of the best evenings of football in my live. That was one helluva football team.



I could not agree more, still one of the best football experiences of my entire life...being in that crowd that night and feeding off the energy is something I will never forget...I wish I had that game on tape...

I was 9 when that game came on TV and I can remember Leroy making the pick and I had that feeling that we were about to score. My brother and I had the same feeling when we knew Dale Murphy would hit a HR, and we could usually call it before it happened. When they ran that sweep to Dex I knew it was to the house.

Miami and FSu were so good during those years, and every game felt like it was the MNC. Usually it was too!

Except that year, the loser of the game (UM) actually won the MNC. But most experts admitted that FSU was by far the best team in the Nation that year especially by the end of the season...just couldn't give an NC to a team with two losses. Damn it.

We had 220 yards rushing that night. Dexter had 142 yards himself. I think Edgar had another 50 or so.

That was against a really good UM front four. Greg Mark, and three other guys whose names I cannnot remember. Also, Bernard Clark was an excellent LB.

I still have a shirt that says "State Champions 24, National Champions 10"

The referee for that game was a good friend here in Fort Myers, Joe Rider, who at that time officiated a lot of our games (after we joined the ACC the conference rarely allowed him to call our games, as he was a Floridian and his daughter attended Florida State). Joe has always stated that 89 FSU/UM was the most electric game he ever called. When Chief Osceola came out Joe was scared to death that there was going to be a pregame fight and he was at the center of the field trying to keep the two teams apart when suddenly the flaming spear hit the ground right behind his foot. I was at that game also and it definitely rivals the 1980 Pitt game for the most electricity ever in that stadium.

The '80 Pitt game was amazing. Unfortunately I was on the road for the '89 game and had to watch it in a bar outside of Cincy...
