He was the white version of RS10. Skinny, fast and great with the ball in his hands. The problem with both of them, was where did you put them in order to get them the ball? At RB, they couldn't be expected to pound it up the middle and as WR they couldn't be expected to consistently beat man to ...

2003 at Ole Miss. Ole Miss always gives us fits, especially when we have a lot on the line. Add in the fact that everyone was hyping it up because of Eli being the QB for Ole Miss. One of Mauck's worst games, but our D was nasty and allowed us to win despite the very poor offensive showing....
