Used in the Exhibit: Play by Play - A Century of L.A. Sports Photography, 1889-1989 In 16 years as head coach, John McKay compiled a 127-40-8 record, won four national titles and five Rose Bowls, and coached two Heisman Trophy Award winners. Here, the "Silver Fox" stands with his undefeated 1972 squad, considered one of the greatest teams in school--and college football--history. The team's unofficial mascot? A stray mutt that McKay and the players adopted and nicknamed "Turd." Photo dated October 2, 1972.
