The Rebels, as they were known then, always had a quarterback with head turning ability. They also had backs who could make the tough yard but could go the distance with the exceptional speed with which they were imbued.

What they talked about with deep and abiding respect was that the Ole Miss linemen wore low-cut shoes. When your team has linemen who can run wind sprints with the backs, you know you have rare talent.

With what has come about in football today, Ole Miss has a much greater challenge to be as relevant as the Rebels once were. That is why they all love and revere this one-time quarterback.

Archie Manning reminds them of the Vaught era. Ole timers will never let go of that.
