From Okeechobee County, currently work near there.

Best player to still come out of there was Jimmy Jones, who won national championships and super bowls with JJ.

Rick Ross and I have something in common; we made a killin' milkin' Okeechobee, but I only milked milk, and he made millions with something called 'okie dokie'.

..I'm still not sure what okie dokie is.
And Coach Dan Kreidler.

Must be pretty cool being all the way out there.

Got to dust off the Ape suite and scare the hell out of the tourists on the air boats.

That’s crazy. I grew up in south Florida and was a Canes fan and Vikings fan. I started being a Vikings fan because of Anthony Carter. Then along comes Chris Carter and Randy Moss. That loss to the dirty birds in the NFC championship when Anderson missed the FG was devastating. Now a days I am a Phins fan ESPECIALLY with a black coach and GM. I really hope we make history and win a super bowl.
What was the name of that track guy who went to LSU and flamed out? I think his name was Carter. I think it was his father who started a recruiting service about 20 years ago and it flamed out too. I believe Anthony might have been his cousin.

Coach Duda is still there..

Remember when he played for Maryland. I can't remember who was coach there, it might have been Bobby Ross, or maybe it was Bill Dooley? No, Bill Dooley did not coach there. It was Jerry Claiborne who left VaTech to go to Maryland. I know it was a guy who also had a Virginia Tech connection. I think both did.

I think they were still playing a weird defensive front, it might have been a wide tackle six.

EDIT: In fact, the Bobby Ross team that we played in '84 still used the wide tackle 6. I guess it's a relic in college football now. As is the old Okie 5-2. That was our defense under Schnelly and Olivadotti until JJ replaced it in '85. (Actually, he was sick of the 5-2 and very unhappy with it and during the Purdue game when we had trouble pressuring QB Jim Everett the coaches told Dallas Cameron at halftime, I believe it was, to just do nothing but rush Everett. That was really the transition to the 4-3 which became our attacking defense under Johnson and which became our trademark.

The real transition came in spring practice in '85 after Johnson resolved the intrastaff dispute over philosophy. Bill Trout left as DC and Johnson installed Wannstadt. We played UCLA in, I think, the Fiesta Bowl at the end of the '84 season and the UCLA coaches later said they were very surprised at how passive our defense was in the game. They said they expected a Jimmy Johnson type "blitzkrieg" but were surprised when our DL sat back without a lot of pressure. They said they prepared for the bowl game by watching film from Johnson's Oklahoma State teams.
