Is this a trick question? I notice you say same "season," not same year. So if the guy won an Oly medal in 1960, you'd count it if the Super Bowl win was 1960-61? (Yes, I know there was no Super Bowl then; just using a hypothetical that doesn't give any further clue)
OK, you want hoops-related? The guy who was on all three football teams (and it's not Warren Moon, who never made it to the Super Bowl) also played varsity hoops and in his senior year made it as far as the Regional final. The next year his school won the NCAA title.
Another clue: he was on the field for the most famous play in college football history.
>... partial credit? Boston college ... although
I always though McMahon's come from way behind
(20pts less than 4min) was equal to or better
drama than Flutie's). Is that Half credit?<
You're assuming that gh is thinking of the 1984 BC-Miami game. I have a funny feeling he's thinking of the end of the 1982 Cal-Stanford game, which is sort of the West Coast equivalent of the 1968 Harvard-Yale game in its legendary status. Since he was referring only to one play (and since the H-Y game is probably not on his radar screen), I'd be willing to bet he was talking about band play, not Flutie's Hail Mary).
OK, extending this silliness even farther (eleventeen degrees of separation), who was guarding Wilt Chamberlain the night he scored 100 points? (yes, you earn a rim shot if you say "nobody") And how does it relate to this thread?
Darrall Imhoff guards Wilt's 100
Imhoff last minute 'tip in' leads Cal to NCAA title over Jerry West's WVU team. Emhoff All American (ncaa tournament) 2 yrs @ Cal in 59-60.
Imhoff and West both played on the 1960 gold-medal United States Olympic team. They later were roommates with the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers. Imhoff, twice playing on teams with West, lost in seventh games of NBA finals to Boston.
Now here's the kicker .. Imhoff was the guy in the band who was crushed in the end zone, thereby failing to block another legendary and famous scoring moment in US athletic lore. The Cal team was coached by Joe Kapp and Stanford was led by John Elway neither of who ever played one minute against Chamberlain.
"Imhoff was the guy in the band who was crushed in the end zone,"
What was a 1960 Cal grad doing playing in the Stanford band in 1982? Was the Stanford music department so devoid of musicians that it couldn't field an adequate band from its undergraduate and graduate students? Or from its faculty and staff? Or from its own alumni?
