I vividly remember the Earle Bruce TV show after that 1975 game only because of how he looked on the TV screen. I don't think I have ever seen a coach look so totally dejected.
Then, later that year, if I am remembering correctly, he coached in the East-West all star game. When he got back he said the difference in calibur of athletes from the all-stars to ours wasn't all that much, but those players had an attitude and lots of confidence. Anyway, not sure how much that had to do with our turnaround in 1976 but I remember him saying it was an eye-opener for him.
