We have all lived by the creed records are meant to be broken and with each new record made, breaking it becomes more of a challenge. As a kid in the 60’s, following Mickey Mantle, it was accepted if any one could break Babe Ruth’s home run record it would be the Mickster. We saw him come close and heard that was one record that could not be broken.
Then came the summer of 1961 and Roger Maris. As we know, it took Maris more games to hit 61 home runs than it took Ruth to hit 60. Consequently there was an asterisk next to his name until after Roger died. Yet Ruth who needed more games to set record of 60 homers in a single season had no asterisk after his name.
If you want to know more about the asterisk and the home run race between Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, rent the movie 61* directed by Billy Crystal, it is a wonderful film.
In college football there resides some records that seem unbeatable. The first one we will examine is Al Brosky. Ever hear of Al Brosky? Al Brosky holds the record for most career interceptions in college football.
Al’s record is 29 picks, there is a two way tie for second place with 27 ints. Whatufabet เข้าสู่ระบบ makes Al’s record stand out? Certainly that should be a record with in the grasp of any solid defensive back, today’s backs face more passing schemes, they play more games and can be four year starters.
Apparently all of those advantages are not enough. Al Brosky played football for the University of Illinois between 1950 and 1952. Freshmen were not allowed to play on the varsity and the running game was the main staple of college football. Brosky’s record has stood the test of time, for 56 years he has been king of the pick and it appears he will continue to do so for years to come.
