The name Tony Bua makes me sad because one play only. Unfair since he was a good Razorback and we'd be better off right now with a couple Tony Bua's.

His career highlight was as a Dolphin. https://dolphinstalk.com/2018/07/18/remember-when-tony-bua-destroyed-two-guys/

WHat a video! Thanks for pluggin' that one in, man, that was some block!

Seems like the coaches had to continually remind Tony to 'tone it down' in practice. They were concerned that if they turned him loose, they wouldn't have enough guys left to field a team.
Always one of my faves.

Happy Birthday to one of my all time favorite Hogs.   What he brought to the field is definitely what has been missing from the LB position.   Little dude, but all heart.

He was a tremendous competitor and tough guy on the field.  Unfortunately if the question is what pops into mind about Tony it is unnecessarily spearing Chris Leak to probably cost us a game against Florida.  That's probably not fair to Bua, but it is the truth.

Wasn't for me. I had LONG forgotten that.

I DO recall a Tasmanian Devil linebacker that pretty much knocked the absolute hell out of everything not wearing a Razorback or official's clothes.

He was a small guy, but he brought a 55 gallon barrel of whoopass with him whenever he tackled someone, wish he'd made it in the NFL.

What's your favorite memory? ::hornsdown::

...him being in my Western Civ class, showing up the first day, then never again until the final, when he walked in fifteen minutes late, shook the instructor's hand, and left.

If I recall correctly, that was a very questionable late hit call on Bua against Fla. Looked to me that Leak released the ball a half second before getting hit, and Bua had no way to pull up or avoid hitting him. Maybe I am partial, but I truly feel that flag should have never been thrown. JMHO.

Grew up watching the hogs with guys like Bua, Caleb Miller, and Sam Olajabutu.

Have to say, Olajabutu was my favorite LB growing up. He was "too short" to play, but somebody mentioned tasmanian devil earlier in this thread. No better moniker for the undersized Sam than that.
