See the player in the picture? Can you name him?
Look at the size of his hands, check out those biceps, care to guess how big around are his thighs? Can you imagine those knees hitting you on the chin?
The 1980s saw the coming of the super-athlete, players who were gifted physically beyond anything seen previously.
Sit back while we discuss the performance of quarterback Reggie Collier and his Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles in the 1981 and '82 seasons.
Reggie Collier stood 6'3" and weighed 210, he could cut on a dime and outrun any player on the field. With his size he could also bowl over tacklers.
Collier was a realtively local fellow from Biloxi, Mississippi who became the first quarterback in NCAA history to rush for over a thousand yards and pass for over a thousand yards in the same season.
In 1981, after the first eight games of the year, the Golden Eagles' record stood at 7 wins, no losses, and one tie.
The tie was from a contest played in Birmingham against Alabama, Paul Bryant's Alabama, who would lose only one regular season game in '81.
Southern Miss rolled into Tallahassee, Florida to take on Bobby Bowden's Seminoles of Florida State in the Eagles' ninth game of the year.
The powerful 'Noles were coming off two straight Orange Bowl seasons and so far in 1981 had beaten Ohio State in Columbus, Notre Dame in South Bend, and LSU in Baton Rouge.
The clock showed 8:33 remaining in the third quarter when Reggie Collier left the game. His Golden Eagles led 44-0.
USM went on to shock the Seminoles, 58-14.
Not much opportunity for the home crowd to perform the war chant.
Collier rushed for 150 yards, threw for two touchdowns, and set back FSU football so far the 'Noles would not return to the Orange Bowl for 11 years.
The following season Reggie led the Golden Eagles into Tuscaloosa where he performed his everyday miracles again, stunning Alabama and their home crowd into silence, 38-29.
You want shock? It was Alabama's first loss in Tuscaloosa in 19 years!
You read it right, 19 years, from 1963 to 1982.
It would also be Paul Bryant's final home game, a loss to Reggie Collier and Southern Mississippi, to close out the Bear's magnificent coaching career on the field in Tuscaloosa.
Reggie Collier, he quieted Bear Bryant and Bobby Bowden before their home crowds. Now, that is a man.
