Marcus Nash was HIGHLY overrated. He was a product of the greatness of Manning. So was almost every receiver there from 1995-1997. Only Peerless was good enough to accel at the next level. That was as a no. 2 receiver as well. Peerless gets a ton of deserved love for his prowess as a WR and KR(return against Bama 1998). That being said the following were all better: Larry Seivers, Stanley Morgan, Willie Gault, Tim McGee, Anthony Miller, Alvin Harper, Carl Pickens, Dontae Stallworth, Kelley Washington, James Banks and Cordarrelle Patterson
Come on dude this guy should’ve gave it up but he gave it his all for this university. Injuries haunted him ! He was if I remember right....was the first freshman to play tackle?? Seems like if I remember the story...that he was jeopardizing just to be to walk but continued to give it his all
During some downtime last year, I watched the entire 98-99 season. It really stuck out to me that he was the most inconsistent and overly hyper player on the field. We won several games in spite of him. That team with a slightly better QB would go.down as the greatest team in CFB history.
I'll throw a hot take out there. We've really overrated Inky Johnson's as a player. I remember being frequently frustrated by him being beat semi-regularly on long passes. That may also have been a product of Chavis-ball failing to adjust to the spread.
With that said, he is an amazing person and one of the best public speakers/motivators out there. Seriously. I knew him from Gibbs Hall and he was a flat out quality guy.
