    Re: Happy Birthday Bo Jackson, He's 50 Today

    I have to admit I was wrong about Bo. (Nearly choked saying that)

    I thought he was just a 'flash in the pan' college player.
    (Seen thru Crimson Glasses I guess)

    In the USFL I thought he was a big fish in a little bowl.
    (Same problem)

    In the NFL and in Baseball, I was finally forced to acknowledge his abilities.
    He was a fantastic player, even thou he went to the 'School down the road'.

    Irony is that in high school, Bo's sister supposedly, was faster than him, and could out run him...
    Or so the story goes.

    Now my only question is: Was Bo 'The Bag Man?' Need to ask DS...

    Not only was Bo one of the best athletes we've ever seen, but he has done a remarkable amount of good work for others with his life. Bo is a class act and a great humanitarian. Nothing but respect for the man.

    I just put them on the coffee table for recruits to look at
    -Coach Saban when asked if he wears his championship rings.

    'Im sorry, folks outside of SEC country, but a few facts are incontrovertible. They smoke better barbecue than you. Their women are prettier than your women. They play football better than your schools play football.
    -Andy Stiles, Sports Illustrated, after the 42-14 beat down of ND

    Bo never played in the USFL.

    Herschel did.

    Maybe Bo is blowing the candles the wrong way today, by inhaling.

    But he is the best college football player I ever saw with my own two eyes. Herschel Walker and Derrick Thomas are the only two I can think of that come close.

    As much as it pains me to admit this, Bo Jackson was probably the the most incredible athletes that I've ever seen. It was a shame that injuries ended his career way too soon. Happy Birthday Bo!
