Thanks again. A lot of famous players, and coaches, from many of those schools. The Celebration Bowl is probably far more lucrative than the FCS games.
Bob Hayes of Florida A&M, to my way of thinking, has never received the credit he deserves for permanently altering the NFL passing game. He was, to the passing game, similar to what Bobby Orr was to hockey defensemen.
In addition to actually being the fastest man in the world, Hayes was also a superb football player with great hands, the moves and cutting ability of a running back and never shied away from contact. There has never been another like him and, like Orr, there probably never will be.
So, thanks for the info and the memories.
