Part II of Auburn's Top-5 Run Offenses


Recommended Posts





Brooks and Cribbs and Andrews in the same backfield with tear away jerseys was so fun to watch.

Man, I'm not sure I ever remember Collis Campbell ever getting tackled. Seemed like on the limited carries he had the best the defense could do was run him out of bounds. Guy could have more than likely been a star on most any other SEC team.

Mike Currier. Almost forgot about him.  Wallace Clark and Mickey Zolfko (sp) a couple of waybackers.

Zolfko ended up being a very good special teams player for the Lions

Food for thought.  Imagine the 1979 team being coached by someone like, I don’t know, Pat Dye instead of Barfield.  The team had 5 All-Sec First Team players on it.  They weren’t just talented on offense either.  The defense had some studs on it as well.  Freddy Smith’s name comes to mind.  Too much talent on that team to lose to a mediocre Tennessee team as well as Wake Forest.

I do. Especially Tim Jessie. Solid as a rock player that would have been a multi year starter at most SEC schools.

1979 -- that was a fun year.  A TD run averaged every 17 plays or so?  So true.  The anticipation was there that either Brooks or Cribbs (or both) would break off a long run taking it to the house just about every time they touched the ball.   Thanks, StatTiger for bringing back the memories with some awesome videos.

Unbelievable and other worldly! Bo had some kind of speed but I did not know he was this fast.  Dude was hauling! 

 

 

I never saw that clip. Wow. The other one to look up for Bo was vs Georgia Tech. About 4 guys have the angle on him and he just blows by them.
