1995 Northwestern: Best Season Ever

Hat-tip to Holly at Yahoo's Dr. Saturday for this late-day post about Northwestern's run in 1995. I cannot believe it has been 14 years.

Not to be lost in my mid-life adoption of Florida -- understatement -- is that Northwestern's run in 1995 remains (and will always be) the greatest sports moment of my life as a fan.

Maybe that justifies all the more the frustration some seem to feel about my Florida fandom (or my seeming abandonment of Northwestern) -- I can appreciate that.

But that run from beating Notre Dame in South Bend in September 1995 through the Rose Bowl on January 1, 1996 is the kind of experience I hope every fan gets to have some day about their team.
