Our latest contributor to “From the Grandstand” happens to be the brother of the Huskie fan who submitted the most popular FTG to date.

Q: For how many years have you been following the Huskies? Bob: I have been following the Huskies with greater interest since the late 1980’s.

All Huskie fans, myself included, have many fond memories of UofS football over the last several years. But I’m certain that there are few, if any, Huskie fans with as detailed a recollection, of seasons past, as our latest fan to contribute to “From the Grandstand.” Tom S. grew up near Griffiths Stadium, and has followed the Dogs for his entire life. In particular, his recounting of a 1998 game against the UBC Thunderbirds is a treat to read. That was a game that I attended, but had forgotten many of the highlights. Until now. Q: For how many years have you been following the Huskies? Tom S.: In the | Full Article
