    Which one? 1993 or 1994? He got about 40 carries in both and dominated in both.

    Bruiser not to forget about is Fred Collins. I think Fred still holds the longest run from scrimmage. Not bad for a FB

    For anyone that remembers the late 70's . James Otis Doss & Lynn Copeland were very talented players.

    OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss campus police ask students to behave at future baseball games following a recent incident.
    The university said students were reportedly throwing rocks at Georgia baseball players during last weekend's series.

    I wanted to name Haddix and could not remember King. Thank you. I can still hear Jack "Donald Ray King over left side powering his way for 3 tough yards."

    They were a great tandem. Mr inside and Mr outside with Bond in ball control. The wishbone then was a thing of beauty that Bond and Bellard ran to perfection.

    As good as that defense was in 80- it still boggles me how the Nasty Bunch put 42 on us that season. That close loss to Fla combined with the Belue to Scott 92 yard pass for Georgia was all that stood between us and a Sugar Bowl vs Notre Dame

    A Train would have been nasty in Leech?s system. Hell he was good in both ******* and SloMos systems. A Train was definitely disrespected in his final year. If he played now, he could have transferred as RB1 to anyone else instead of wasting his senior season at State with Morehead.

    Yeah I know. The D on those teams with the talent on O had a chance to do big big things.

    MSU has always figured out a way to screw up a great season. Just like 98, I have yet to understand how we got drummed by LSU that year like 42-6 or something.

    Yeah Slomo went woke and said to heck with those that work hard and execute. Aries earned the right to be the man his senior year. Happens all the time in todays world though in all walks of life.

    I remember that game like it was yesterday. USM had Reggie Collier and he went apeshit against MSU that day.

    Aries was the man on picking up a blitzer. He was a great pass blocker. He was also secure with the ball. He wasn’t flashy and didn’t break long runs. But he got positive yardage. He could get you 4 yards on 3rd and 3. He didn’t lose yardage very often. He wasn’t one our greats. But he was very effective.

    Kylin Hill was flashier and had more potential and explosiveness. But Kylin was nowhere close to being the blocker that Aries was. And sometimes Kylin would only get you 1 yard on 3rd and 3 because he was trying to get you 30 yards.

    Yep. Watching that whole debacle unfold in front of me in Memorial Stadium was a gut punch.

    I was a very young dude but what I know about he and Ode would be right up at the top! Here is another back, Marcus Rhoden, fastest RB in our history.

    I looked in top 10 in rushing yards and Ladarias Perkins is #8. Don't know how many yards he had but Kenny Roberts could also turn on the jets. We have had so many outstanding RB's.

    Yeah Perkins was a good back I just don't think he was great at any one thing. Agree on Roberts. I had him a fastest to the corner. Dude could flat out fly.
