Most iconic numbers in UD history 70 - 79

Keep in mind, this is the most iconic number, not a single player’s number. So, as some of you have noted, there may be multiple players wearing a particular number who, over time, have made that number more iconic than a more “famous” player who wore a different number. As a follow-up to our serie...

Re: Live Construction Footage

With the Gold “Street View” camera currently turned toward the East stands by the wind, it is easy to see the old press box and camera stand.

Re: Most iconic numbers in UD history 60 - 69

I’m down to 60, 62, and 65. Probably going to have to go with 60.

Re: Live Construction Footage

The temporary press box on the East Stands from last year was removed, although it appears that a camera stand remains. Perhaps visiting coaches will still be relegated to the old East Stands press box! :D

Re: Trivia re sacks

Joe Quigg played from 1981-83. With 16 career sacks, he is tied for 11th with Joe McHale, Pat Mulhern, Chris Mooney, and Matt Marcorelle. Here’s the amazing thing - he also holds the record for single season sacks - with 16. So. All his sacks came in one season (1983)! Shawn Johnson is second with 1...

Re: Most iconic numbers in UD history 60 - 69

As I mentioned above, the most iconic number may or may not be a single player’s number. There may be multiple players wearing a particular number who, over time, have made that number more iconic than a single more “famous” player who wore a different number. Here are a few that I’m mulling over in...

Who holds the all-time UD records for tackles as a freshman?

Yes, indeed, HJ - our own Ralph “58” D’Angelo in 1994!

In a game? 19 (vs. Lehigh)
In a season? 126
That was a quarter century ago. Ouch.
Methinks you administered a lot of “ouch’s” of your own.

Trivia re sacks

In UD’s history, the top 10 players in career sacks include 9 D-linemen and 1 LB.

Who was the LB, when did he play, and how many sacks did he have?

Try to answer without looking it up - makes it more fun for everyone.

Re: Most iconic numbers in UD history 50 - 59

Thanks! I'd add Mark Hondru @ #55 who had to be a fan favorite. After every tackle he'd turn into Mark Gastineu and celebrate like a maniac... 😂 3 other notable 55’s - Gary Bello, Steve Panik, and, I believe, Chris Coyne wore 55 for his first year or two before switching to 56. Great guy who passed...
