I went back to the College Preview Edition of The Sporting News and found not a word about him or his likely achievement. A week before the event an occasional mention was made in some of the sports columns across the country. On Saturday, the day of the event it was noted on most football telecasts, and there was even a half-time feature on ABC. And in the sport's television version of damning with faint praise, the game itself was televised on The Deuce, ESPN2, the cable network most of America has never seen.
