    UL Football Spirit of 76 Video (1976 Football Season)

    Just left BoomerVille and watching the "Spirit of 76" video.

    Good stuff.

    Four phrases were used around UL back then. ( I forget the 4th) but in no particular order

    "Roll on Big Red"

    "Poo Yie - Touchdown"

    "Geaux Cajuns"

    Perhaps it was doing harm (injury) to a certain obsolete mascot which was considered political incorrect and whose new mascot is now a member of a pack of animals of a certain reddish ting!!!! Man I hope you can get some Slick Rick holds and Mr Magic launches!!!!

    Default Spirit of 76 Video (1976 Football Season)

    I hope you enjoy this video narrated by Ron Gomez as he recaps the fantastic UL football season of 1976.




    There are significant frame jumps for portions of the first 3 minutes but it pretty much clears up after that.

    Background: Due to copyright issues I had to remove Frank Sinatra's "My Way" from the near ending. I took the very end instrumental and triple looped it.

    I wasn't a football player, my college years ranged from the 0-10 season in 1973 to the 9-2 season in 1976. I graduated in
    1977.

    It was exciting to see the improvement each year I was there. In basketball, the first two years were the death penalty, and they won the conference in 1976-77.

    And my freshman. I made none of those videos because we ALWAYS sat mid field on the top row of the student side. Needed quick access to concession and BR.

    Boomer, to this day I still remember most of the players' numbers and the coaching staff.

    Sam Robertson ( defense) and Larry Zeno ( offense) may have been the best coordinators of their time. We made adjustments throughout the games, until we found the right offensive plays and the right defensive alignement.

    UL Football 40 Years ago "Spirit of 76"

    This year it will have been 40 years since the Spirit of 76 season.

    The original video had Frank Sinatra's "My Way" as a music bed (for a portion) YouTube said No Way to My Way so I subdubbed an instrumental.

    Also the shaky frames are only at the beginning.
