Interesting Question of the Day – 10 April 2019

In the final game of the 1972 season, Dave Hampton needed 70 yards to bring his seasonal rushing total to 1,000 yards.

Early in the 4th quarter, he made it to exactly 1,000.  The game was stopped, and he was given the game ball and a standing ovation that lasted for several minutes.

What happened a few minutes later?

    He lost ground on a later play so ended up with less than 1000 yards on the season. It was a case of counting his chickens (in this case falcons) before they were hatched.

      He lost six yards. He managed to gain another one back, but came up short.

      The following year he only made it to 995.

      The year after that, he made it to 1,002 yards on the final game of the season, as was immediately benched.
