Sorry, I didn't see your message till today.
Of course we're both biased about our teams at JM but the article I still have quotes Colvin as saying it was his best team ever. 383 points to 20 over the year -not playing starters half the game. The A teams did the same thing in all sports -my soccer, baseball and track. The hoops team only split against Martin Luther King/Berkeley. And I always bring my A game ;-)
Not sure about the OSU gathering places but if I hear, I'll let you know.
As for Riley, you're right that he played briefly against Oregon. I believe I noted that he only started one game and didn't play again till the bowl game. His only two other stints besides the OSU and bowl game were the brief appearances against Oregon and Louisiana Tech.
