1994: The Play That Ended The Suffering

If you’re wondering why I picked 1994 as the ending of Oregon’s football “prehistory”, this should explain it.

Until recently, there was another video on youTube that showed The Drive — the 98 yard, 10 play sequence that made heroes out of Danny O’Neil and Dwayne Jones and Dameron Ricketts and Ricky Whittle and Dino Philyaw. But the video — along with about 2,500 others that had been posted by “keerrrrrrrttttt1” — were unceremoniously deleted from YouTube for allegations of copyright infringement.

That 98 yard drive should be commemorated as often as The Pick. But Wheaton’s TD is what we remember. And rightly so, because that’s when The Suffering ended.
