    Have the whole game on tape.

    USC has Charles White, Marcus Allen, Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith, Anthonthy Munoz etc a team that could defeat a lot ofNFL teams -yet Montana leads t5he Irish back from a huge deficit in the 2nd half to take the lead -only to have USc kick a last second FG -which ended up them winning a share of the NC.

    Then he led ND back against Houston in the Cotton Bowl Chicken Soup game.

    no question in my mind this guy was the real deal.

    Niners drafted him in the 3 rd rouind.

    and ND got screwed in the game.

    On USCs final drive for a last secomd FG - USC QB Paul McDonald FUMBLED and and ND recoved - but th the refs ruled it was a "forward pass" Not Close. Clearly a fumble. Instant replay who show it was a fumble and not a forwards pass

    So instead of ND running out clock USC has big gain on a pass - and kicks a last secd FG .

    Was piizzed
