I remember years ago, going to write about a Louisiana Tech-South Carolina football game. And the sports information director told me Louisiana Tech had perhaps the best offensive linemen in America. I did not believe him especially; so I trained the binoculars on the left tackle. And the sports information director was right. The offensive tackle was mesmerizing. Every running play he knocked his defender backward about 10 feet. On passing plays, he ran his man away from the quarterback. I don't think his man got a single tackle the whole game. That was Willie Roaf, who will go to the Hall of Fame someday soon. It was entertaining. Thing is, Louisiana Tech still lost the game, and I'm certain that if I had not been watching Roaf, I never would have noticed him.
