There's that special disdain that we all have, I suppose, for that one guy who always found a way to beat you. That guy that no matter what you did would always win. And the more he beat you, the cockier he seemed and the more you grew to hate him and to play him. He owned you. For me, that guy was former Mississippi QB John Bond. :angryfire John Bond was the best option QB I've ever seen play (in person). I know there were/are other great ones (Watts-Oklahoma, Holloway-Tennessee, Street-Texas, Mildren-Oklahoma, etc.) but I only saw them on TV. I saw Bond in Tiger Stadium. He ran. And he ran. And he ran some more. And when he didn't run, he passed pretty well too. I believe he still holds the SEC record for career rushing yards by a QB although the kid from Arkansas will probably break the record this year if he doesn't get hurt. I think Bond is still the only SEC QB to rush for 2,000 yards and pass for 4,000 yards in a career. During his time at State, Bond beat us 55-31 (Jackson '80), 19-7 (Tiger Stadium '81), 27-24 (Starkville '82), and 45-26 (Tiger Stadium '83). The '83 game remains one of my all-time worst memories in Tiger Stadium. On that night, he was simply unstoppable. And as I remember it, the game was worse than the score would indicate. He was everywhere. From my vantage point in the South End Zone, watching each option play develop made me nervous and it was clear that the LSU defense was no match for that guy on that night. While the '81 and '83 Tigers were not great (3-7-1 and 4-7 respectively), the '80 (7-4) and '82 (8-3-1) teams were not too bad. And we still couldn't beat him. In '82, close, so close, but no cigar. :dis: I'm glad he only had 4 years of eligibility. I understand he's coaching somewhere now. Anyway, who's that #1 guy on your list ?
