    I do remember when Bo Jackson smeared Bosworth. Honestly though, who in the world would Bo Jackson not have run over in that instance? Bosworth wasn't really a screw up in the sense of being a loser who got into trouble. He was injury-plagued.

    Bo Jackson on the other hand was one of the most phenomenal athletes to ever play any sport. Amazing strength, agility and explosive speed in that package was hard to stop. He was unbelievable, and truly one of my favorite athletes to watch, ever.

    Anybody remember when Bosworth wore the NCAA t-shirt at the national title game against Miami? Now that was funny.
