"At Stanford, Booker spent his first two years on the bench. In his junior and senior years, he had 20 catches for 199 yards and a touchdown. On October 6, 1990, he caught four passes for 47 yards as Stanford upset then-top-ranked Notre Dame 36–31"


I met Booker when he was first getting into politics

I mentioned that I was an ND guy. He immediately went into a monologue on that game, on how Holtz had recruited him (which made the game all the sweeter) and what a great guy Holtz is. I have met him a number of times over the years (not since he became a senator) and he has consistently remembered that I was an ND guy. He is a born politician (as I am not the memorable.)

final offensive play in the dirt.

I recall seeing Rocket Ismail give an interview in which he described how well Lou Holtz knew football. According to Ismail, Holtz gathered his offense around him close to end of the game & drew up the final play right on the field telling everyone where to be & guaranteed Derek Brown would be open for a TD catch to win the game.

We were pulling the wins out of our butt that season (Michigan, MSU and the immaculate deflection). If Derek came up with that catch, I don't think we beat Miami a couple of weeks later.

I think we re-upped the intensity level after that loss.


Not ok here. Especially after after blowing a 24-7 lead! *
