The Longhorn with the uncalled clip on the James Street long run in the Big Shootout

I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion but if you want that clip called then John Rees's catch on the first drive was out of bounds. I'm almost positive that would have been the call if there'd been multiple camera angles and instant replay back then. Besides, thee way our defense was playing, who calls a pass on third and goal when you have Bill McClard?

But, he led the league in most offensive categories!
I think it has to be the whole leg and not just pieces.

Without question, Bill Lamebeer.  It's good to see that others shared in my loathe.

I had just turned eleven when I attended that game with my parents.  The title of the thread is "as a child".  Not "as remembered by a rational adult years later through the lens of modern technology".  I watched that clip live, screaming, without a replay screen in old RS, and then ranted about it at school the next week and then all through Christmas to the sufferance of my Texas relatives.  Kept it up until Archie made the point moot, and Freddie Steinmark made us all be nice.

For those not old enough to remember the shot Ron Brewer took to beat Notre Dame in the (I believe) last consolation game played in the Final Four; Laimbeer was playing for no that day. Late in the first half, our top defender, one Jimmy Counce, goes down with a serious injury. Seems Mr. Laimbeer had elbowed him in the side so hard that it fractured a rib a ruptured Counce's spleen. Had to have emergency surgery that night. Never had much use for that thug after that incident. Total headhunter.
