Bork sees common thread with ’63 team
George Bork doesn’t sound any bit the Big Man on Campus his football legend suggests he should.
Nearly 50 years after his name filled the pages of Sports Illustrated and Time magazine and his image became the subject of a Christian Science Monitor cartoon strip, Bork would rather talk about Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch’s star power than he would of his own accolades.
Mention 1963 – the year Bork guided NIU to a 10-0 record and a College Division National Championship following the school’s first after bowl victory, a 21-14 win over Southwest Missouri State in the Mineral Water Bowl – and he initially brushes it off.
