"The Play" Is Still The Greatest Event In College Football History

24 years after the day of the event, "The Play" is still the most well-known single event in college football history, and makes the already rich rivalry between the University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University all the more magical.

If you've never seen "The Play" it's captured in a video which can be seen with a click on the title of this post and is part of a webpage on its history. The video, unlike others, starts with Stanford's finaly scoring drive, led by John Elway, and features a run by my good friend then-Stanford (later LA / Oakland Raiders) Fullback Michael Dotterer to set up the field goal which would have got Stanford the win...had "The Play" not occured.
