    Posted this over in the TC and figured some of you over here would enjoy a trip down memory lane. As you can see, I am trying to do anything to prevent continuing work on my statistics exam.

    Here are some old photos of interest:

    I had no idea Fiorello La Guardia was our Homecoming King in 1985.

    Kidding aside, superb collection.
    Anybody here old enough to point out the hot tailgating spots in those 64/65 aerial shots?

    Awesome, just awesome.


    I hope that everyone takes this in the joking/silly manner that it's intended, but what's up with the guy in the 5th photo: "Hurricane season ends today": (In the FSU shirt)

    Dude...........[​IMG]

    I mean, really............

    Absolutely awesome DN! Those 70's shots of Doak brought me right back to my college years. It's so neat to see the progression of Doak over time.

    Great Post DM. I go back to 64 and Doak is like a home to me, and now to my kids. I remember many of the shots you had. Thanks:)

    Great great stuff, thanks for sharing!

    I also never noticed how much the parking lots (due to the bordering roads, of course) ended up making such a "spear-head" shape - ala the overhead shot from '65.

    Well...sorta. But still!

    Supremely cool. My dad was at FSU in the fifties and given the fact that he passed in the 70s when I was a small child its beyond moving to see pics of what FSU was for him back in the day....

    I wonder if Bowden talking to Kirk Coker was a Auburn when he had a pretty bad concussion? Looks as if he just might be checking to see if he knows where he is.

    The 1985 Shot of the players has John Brown in front # 50. I played HS football with John. Dude was a beast. FL Heavy Weight wrestling champ and weightlifting champ in HS. Great Nole.

    Re: See how young Rusty looked? FSU cheerleaders always pretty.

    Folks, i believe that the 1978 photo is Bragg Memorial Stadium. Neither our east or west stands were that small in 1978

    Re: See how young Rusty looked? FSU cheerleaders always pretty.

    You could very well be correct. All the captions are taken straight from the tags on the Florida Photographic Collection. So, if any of mine are wrong, it is because of the FPC.

    i was going to ask if #50 was john brown. i remember a someone asking him before the gator game what he had to say about some player saying he was going to school brown and get nasty. brown simply said with a grin, "that's my game". you are correct in that he was a real beast and bad a$$.

    Thanks, Dem! It's hard to believe the 1950 DCS and the 2010 DCS are the same place. I was there 74-78 - many good memories.

    The very last photograph where you have date unknown is likely late 60's or early 70's, since the line of magnolia trees is still there, the ones that screened off the stadium lot from the old Pensacola street overpass.

    And I still have the yearbook that featured the photo of the 68 "card" section. Those were all the fraternities back when they had block seating.

    For sure. I think that if you look at it long enough, you can just catch a whiff of Hai Karate.

    Yes the exam went well. I took it back in 2009. I completed my MBA in July 2010. This thread has lasted over a year, which brings me much joy.
