    His nickname was Bambi cause he was fast and graceful as a deer.

    My guess is they didn't realize how bad it was going to be. They probably just figured it would be Shea and Jefferson and then the 8 others that Garrett mentioned a week or so ago. Now they are losing those guys plus one of their top corners in Jones and probably Greg Little among others.

    If these transfers follow through it's almost like the NCAA passively aggressively put them on probation by allowing mass transfers and then just hit them light on scholarhip reductions.

    Here's the 1959 NCAA report:

    I had no idea Alworth ever went to Ole Miss.

    And it just goes to show what my Grandfather told me- they've been cheating forever.

    Because the University of Mississippi would not allow married students on the football team (Alworth had married while he was still in high school), Alworth chose UA, where he played for Frank Broyles. Alworth starred as a running back and led the nation?s college players in punt return yardage in 1960 and 1961. A marketing major, he was named an Academic All-American in 1961.


    WHEREAS, the University'
    s representative in this case, an alumnus, apparently did not provide
    any assistance to the prospective student-athlete until after he (the alumnus) had been legally
    established as the prospective student-athlete's guardian, the guardianship decree being granted
    December 24, 1957, following conclusion of the prospect's senior football season;



    WHEREAS, the financial assistance awarded by the university subsequently was cancelled
    because the young man became married during the summer of l958, thus violating one of the
    conditions of the university's award;

    Mars should just threaten to sue the NCAA. The NCAA will cave and grant waivers to people that didn't even request them. Threatening to sue seems to have worked for OM.

    He never went to OM, he wanted to but he had to get married and Vaught had a rule of no married players.

    LOL - Allworth retired before I was born. I remember him from NFL Films.

    Correct, he was from Brookhaven I believe and was married. Vaught had a rule against it. So he went to Ark and the rest is history.

    Had the old crook known how good he was, he would have taken him anyway.

    Vaught wasn't a genius, he went out and basically gave a scholarship to the QB on almost every good team. They were usually the best athletes, so when he got them, if it didn't work out at QB, he would switch them somewhere else.

    He wouldn't be worth a damn in today's scholarship restricted world.

    Integration and sholly limits drove that old cheating bastard out, not "heart problems"
    Not only did Mississippi State embarrass LSU on this night. Davis Wade Stadium wrecked Tiger Stadium in music choice, atmosphere and, most of all, volume.

    yep. Vaught would take the QB's and RB's and make linebackers out of them.
