I remember DMac breaking that one like it was yesterday. He blew by those Georgia Bulldogs like they were standing still. I said to myself…Uh oh, we got us a stud. He was the most exciting and best player I have ever seen as a football Razorback. We all have different views on this, but he gets my vote.
Had it not been for the eventual national champion being in the East that year, it probably would have happened. That Arkansas team had four losses, three to teams who won a BCS game. That was a really good team on both sides; probably Arkansas’ best since joining the SEC.
My recollection is that we didn’t have very many games where all three of them were healthy. Seems like Hillis had some nagging injury most of the season. Jones didn’t play against Ms St, the game before LSU. The LSU game may be the game that all three were pretty healthy.
McFadden also had the toe injury at the start of the year and he nursed lower-body injuries throughout the back half, like ankles and legs. I seem to remember he had an ankle injury in the Florida game.
