    I think the "rift" between us and Gabriel was settled years ago. Supposedly he wanted to be the head coach here after Earle Edwards retired and we decided not to keep Al Michaels. RG wanted to retire from the NFL and take over, but Casey wanted someone with coaching experience and didn't give him an interview. That caused some distance for awhile, but its all in the past now according to what I've heard.

    Not sure if that's actually what happened but it has been repeated enough times at this point to be accepted fact. Roman was also highly critical of the two coaching selections prior to Sheridan which caused some distance. After that he got back on board in terms of helping out with WPC fund raising and the like. His health hasn't been great for awhile now, so he's not out in public much anymore.

    Through a mutual friend I gave Roman a pair of tickets to the State/unc game while Philip was here. RG sat right behind me, but didn't feel well (think he had a rough night before with a bunch of old friends). The second half he was very engaged and was calling the plays from unc"s defensive alignment prior to the snap. It was amazing, like he was in Philip's head.

    Also, David Horning took RG on a tour of the Murphy Center, Roman was very touched & surprised by his display there.

    This reminded me of a conversation I had not too longs ago regarding RG. What happened between him and NCSU, it seems to me I recall some sort of falling out occurred as he really does not seem to be very engaged with helping us like some of our other sports alums...
    iMAybe I am misrememebring

    We had an alumni versus current players game in the spring one year.  Somebody hit him very hard and injured him.  I'm not sure if that caused itbut it couldn't have helped.

  • My boyhood idol hence my screen name with his number from when he played for the Eagles. He was an incredible talent and loved his bombs to Jack Snow. Great that my Rams ate going back to the blue and white helmets from his Rains days with units to match in 2019

    There were a lot of people on the Brady Bunch

     

     

    There were but not Roman unfortunately.

    The Undefeated was a standard Wayne formula movie - 1) get a bunch of your friends together to make a movie, 2 ) have a big drunken brawl in the middle, 3) kill a few Indians/Mexicans/Outlaws, 4) everyone(except the dead guys) lives happily ever after.

    And the problem is?

    And I'm sure that Willis Casey wasglad he passed on RG after watching his coaching job with the Ral-Dur Skyhawks. I worked for the Skyhawks back then and it was not pretty. Friends from California use to kid me saying, The Raleigh Durham Skyhawks. We put the LAF in the WLAF

    Bet there are some here going "Ral-Dur Skyhawks? Who dat?"

    Trust me. Best not known. They made NCSU football look like the Patriots of today in comparison.

    I was lucky enough that I was in charge of all the visiting teams needs in the week leading up to the game and game day. I was on the winning sideline every week lol

    I do recall some health issues, this sounds like what I was trying to remember. Didn't he disappear to Charlotte and not come back for a while?  Glad to hear all is settled now, I was just an infant when he played for the pack. My mom was a TA his SR year, and used to see him on campus and met him as well.  I did enjoy watching him play for the RAMS though. And yes he was a turrible actor... :)

  • Just for fun....Trivia...there was another Famous Native American QB that also took a shot at acting. He was a Big Time College QB, made the cover of SI, IIRC, but did not play a snap in NFL as I recall. One of the Coolest Football names of all time IMHO

    Sonny Sixkiller? Played college FB out west.

  • When he was inducted into the ACC H of F (or whatever it' s called... Legends of the ACC) I was his host. He really was having trouble getting around (maybe 10 years ago). He said playing in the NFL took a toll... I remember as a kid one of the most ferocious hits (and iconic images) was Mike Curtis ringing his bell.

    Yep for the Washington Huskies, As a started for 3 seasons 6-4, 8-3,8-3, prior to SSK starting they were 1-9.  Went un-drafted, had some tryouts but did not make the NFL or CFL, he was really small, 5' 7" 171 lbs.  Signed with the WFL Philadelphis Bells, and finished with Hawaiians when the league folded.  Appeared in the Original Longest Yard as one of the Guards.  

  • My old boss turned down a chance to play at ECU to be a manger for State football. One of his jobs was to stay after practice and catch RG passes. He says he still has bruises on his chest.

    Sonny Sixkiller - an Oklahoma Cherokee who played at U of Washington, then a year in the old WFL.   He did have a wonderful name.

     

    Who was the other famous native American QB?

    That was an iconic photo - remember it well.

     

     

     

     

    I really dug these pics of Mike Curtis going after a Dolphins fan:

     

     

     

     

     

  • I need to post a picture that I view on a daily basis...Sits on the wall in the john across from my favorite seat...Cross stitch that my wife did over 40 years ago..."God Created NC State to Correct the Chapel Hill Mistake"...in the corner is one of my autographed business cards by RG.  He was our motivational speaker for a partner's meeting at the Charlotte Speedway "back in the day".  Ironically, we had a drawing and I won...The only NC State grad in our partner's group!!!

    Talked to him for a while cause I barely missed him as a freshman in 63, but he knew the Mafia backfield that year cause they were former teammates!!!

    Roman's had like 12 knee surgeries & has badly needed a TKR. So far has refused the surgery. Had to quitplaying golf.  As stated, other health issues have slowed him down.

    my hero also. went with my dad to Riddick Stadium several times to watch him play. one of the best arms to ever play the game over his 3 varsity seasons unfortunately at that timewe normally played only 4 home games because of  stadium size.
