Jamie Morris was the go-to running back for the 1987 team. Give him a hole and he finds the endzone, and his senior year, he did it a lot. He's still third all time for season yards (1,703 behind Thomas and Biakabatuka), and fourth all-time for career yards at 4,393. Once I met Jamie Morris in the athletic department offices, and he can still bust open a defense if given the chance. Ageless wonder, that one.
