Mark Roman. I still see that hit he put on that Tulane receiver. The guy was Offensive player in high school in LA. Then played 4 years in the LSU defensive backfield Then went off to a pretty good career in the NFL. just sayin.

When I used to live in LA and went to all of the games, Steve Rehage was a maniac especially on special teams. He would launch himself at the opponents wall of defenders, taking out 3 guys by himself. I'll never forget him!

Since 1980 there have been two LSU Tigers who struck fear into opponents, Laron Landry and JC Copeland. There have been a lot of hard hitters and a lot of amazing hits, but I've never heard opponents comment specifically on a particular player's violence, besides these two. And for these two I've heard it several times.
