I just heard Rick Neuheisel tell this story on ESPN Gameday:
One quarterback who didn’t have much success in an opener was Neuheisel. When the Bruins opened the 1983 season at Georgia, Neuheisel received a pregame omen from the team’s bulldog mascot.
“Uga threw up on my cleats during warmups,” Neuheisel said. “I threw four interceptions.”
The good news is that the dog puke washed off during the deluge that came down during the game – the hardest rain I’ve ever sat through at a football game.
