That was big as a bumper sticker in 1972. I kept my bumper sticker for many years, but I think I threw it out. Maybe not, I'll see if I can find it. Majors didn't like it too much because he thought that it would give the Fuskers extra incentive.
Easy to explain, NU wanted it so badly their sphincters closed up and they choked. Pretty easy to see when you drop that many passes going to touchdowns. One or two... excusable... 4 and they got in their own heads and laid an egg. That is the danger of wanting a game too bad for too long.
It was over hyped. The Missouri game could have been a similar scenario but the coaches made the week more business-like and at times light and fun... and they played that way. Probably the best overall and complete game in Bo's tenure.
