There isn’t a very good reason for this post to exist other than to note that today, October 11, 2021, is the seven-year anniversary of what I termed at the time “The Miracle on the Brazos 2.0,” or what is more commonly referred to now as 61-58. Our hub for this game is still one of the most-trafficked of this site’s entire history and contains several of what used to be one of my favorite features of SBNation’s editing platform: fanshots. They were so easy. You could just insert a quote, video, image, or whatever directly into the timeline, hit publish, and it would open a new thread on command. It was fantastic. Alas.
Anyway, as noted, today is the seventh anniversary of that game, which occurred in McLane Stadium’s first season. If you were at Saturday’s game against West Virginia, the scoring plays of this game were played at one point on the video board to rave reviews. And before anybody anyone says we should just get over this because it’s in the past and who cares, Gary Patterson himself brought it up two weeks ago completely unprompted in the aftermath of the whole SMU kerfuffle.
So head on over to that game’s Hub and relive a time when we still had the Flaming Bear Boat gif, Gif Posts, fanshots, and the Mothership wrote about games right after they happened!
