Which former Razorback...
« on: December 31, 2017, 12:45:06 pm »

football player stands out that could take control and single-handedly change the flow and outcome of a football game?

I say Matt Jones. D-Mac a close #2.

I was watching some videos of MJ this morning- he was read option before that was even a popular scheme in CFB. At the time I just chalked it up to busted play, sand-lot football. But read option in its purest form all the way.

I give HDN no credit...this was pure instinct and MJ’s style of play.

For the sake of a good argument I’d say D-Mac. Matt Jones a close #2.

Have to throw Steve Atwater into the mix. The plays he made on D changed momentum in an instant.

So many candidates. No way I could name just one.

But, my top three would be DMac, Billy Ray and MJ.

I'd also add, James Shibest used to deliver when needed. Dude had uncanny ability to make big catches.

 You think an 18yr old kid instinctively knew what the Read Option was and taught it to his head coach...?

 Credit David Lee if you're too stupid to believe that HDN knew anything at all...

DMac behind Matt Jones? Sorry, but couldn’t disagree more. DMac is one of the greatest RBs to have played in college.

Nothing wrong with giving credit where it’s due. People want to give Malzahn all the credit but it did start with Jones at QB with Nutt. The forward pass may have been something of an enigma for Nutt, but running the ball was not.

I remember and liked all these guys mentioned. Don't feel right picking one over another. I think the older you are the harder it is to pick a favorite. I remember (somewhat) watching Lance Alworth play in Little Rock, and seeing him and his wife on the Frank Broyles Show. Watching Bill Montgomery and Chuck Dicus, followed by this new hot shot QB from Louisiana, Joe Ferguson, and his first game as a Razorback coming in to play against Stanford and Jim Plunkett. It goes on from there. Every year is new.

Read option can’t be an instinct. Lol. You have to leave the DE unblocked and read him. Lol. Some of you posters are pure goofs. I guess the option back was on instinct too😂😂😂

My memories go back to 1974. On defense Billy Ray Smith he was unstoppable. Offense Dmac but Matt Jones was ridiculous.  Lots of great choices Barry Foster was a monster. Jimmy Walker and Dan Hampton were unbelievably good. Hamlin,Kennedy, and the great one Steve Atwater. That said it was Billy Ray in my mind.
