Though he won his national championship later on in South Bend, Lou Holtz certainly left the Arkansas program in better shape than he found it.
For his foundation laying, he ranks one spot above Ken Hatfield, on this particular list.
Coach Holtz won a share of the Southwest Conference title at a time when it was one of the premier conferences in America, and chock-full of football powerhouses and talented players. Hist work made Arkansas a perfect candidate for its current home, the SEC, when that chance came a few years later.
Arkansas owes a lot of its modern name recognition to one man, and that's coach Lou Holtz.
