This interview is part of a series about three football games that were played during the early 1970s and were known as the Hairy Bacon Bowl. The teams were made up of counterculture-identified students from the University of Colorado, Boulder, versus campus and city police. Although Jay Jurie did not play in the Hairy Bacon Bowl games, he was a high school and college student during the late 1960s and early 1970s, and was involved with the counterculture both in terms of lifestyle and politics. He talks about being a young person in Boulder during that time, including describing places where people hung out together and the social/musical/intellectual and drug culture of that decade, as well as giving a detailed account of anti-war political actions of groups such as Student Mobilization Committee, Student Peace Union, and Students for a Democratic Society. He discusses interactions between student activists and the university administration as well as the police.
