Craig always led with the head

Funny how much things have changed in football. Instead of being praised as great hits like the announcers covering those plays were doing, JoJo and Loston would have been flagged and ejected

A player would be banned for life with a hit like that in today's pussified football.

Or an arrest.

Go back and look at the sheer violence and ferocity that Rickey Jackson played with. Can't do that shite anymore either.

Judging from the hits he took from LSU every year? Making sure he takes his Parnkinson's meds each day.

No he'd be publicly executed.

Fact, and all the announcers at the time are talking about how text book the block was etc. That was only 10 years ago. Now, you hit someone to hard, to high, to low you are ejected. Shame.

Need to find the video of the hit Kenny Hollis put on Jerious Norwood in 2005. On the sideline...hit him so hard his helmet came flying off straight up. Remember thinking his head might still be in there...

quote:

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Evidently, there has been quite a lot of hitting going on at those LSU football practices that reporters are not allowed to see, except for a few periods at the beginning.

Anyone who has seen LSU linebacker Kenneth Hollis' helmet-to-helmet hit on Mississippi State tailback Jerious Norwood in the Tigers' 37-7 win Saturday was calling it the most vicious, clean hit they have seen in some time.

"It sounded like two 18 wheelers colliding," Mississippi State sideline announcer John Correro told the Jackson, Miss., Clarion Ledger.

"That was the worst I've ever seen," Southeastern Conference official Don Shanks said. "It was scary."

Well, at least now we know some SEC officials do actually have the gift of sight.

"It scared me," State wide receiver Joey Sanders said. "It scared me. I was just praying Jerious would get up."

Norwood, who was sporting a large knot on the back of his neck, underwent several tests Saturday after leaving the game and is expected to be fine.

"I've never been hit like that," Norwood said. "I still feel dingy. The only thing I can remember at all is coach (Sylvester) Croom's voice, and I can't remember what he said."

LSU coach Les Miles had little reaction to the hit. Asked if he had seen any like that in some time, he very nonchalantly said quietly, "Yeah, I have."

Poor dude was simply in over his head against LSU.

That 2nd clip happened when State was talking a bunch of shite and decided to show up in Tiger Stadium in black. One play in and pretty much everybody knew how that game was going to go.
