Disappointed he didn’t make a Byers freezer reference.

Ferentz specifically recalls the last time he recruited against USC .... in 2004/05

I’ll never forget how nervous those two were when committing during the Army All American game.

‘Uhhh, we wanted to play in the Rose Bowl’
‘So we decided to choo’
‘.............Eyewa’

Kirk should have tossed in a Stanley Havili reference.

From the Holiday Bowl PC today

Q. You mentioned the long-term tenure. I didn't realize until tonight Coach Ferentz has the longest tenured streak in the country of head coaches. Is it 21 years?
KIRK FERENTZ: Yes. I'll make a comment (laughter).

Clay talked about our scores. If I had to live in a world with those 48-39 games, I don't know if I'd last 10 years. Those games kill you. I remember we played Penn State in 1983, I think it was 42-38. It felt like we had been in a marathon. I hate those kind of games.

Hopefully we're not in one this week. I don't know. With the way these guys move the ball and score, I don't know, we'll see what happens.

This actually was way undersold. Not only does he remember a play from 9th grade, he remembered the punter's first and last name, that they lost 2 yards on the play, and the place they were playing and the famous people that played there.

Incredible.

This isn’t really a Kirk thing, but people in their 70s now seem to really have their shit together for the most part. I think it’s the 80s where you start to notice things slowing down - at least that’s how it’s been for me and a few others I’ve talked about it with. And to be fair, I’m only talking about healthy parents with no real other issues. It’s pretty damn encouraging, but also still a bummer when you start to notice your parents are slipping, regardless of age.
