As Arkansas gears up to play LSU, somebody decided it would be a good idea to interview Darren McFadden. It’s pretty entertaining, especially when McFadden, who was one of my favorite players to watch, reminisces about that ridiculous 3OT game back in 2007.
Q: What do you remember most about that game where y’all came to Baton Rouge and won? I think it ended up being, 50-48.
“That’s exactly what it was: 50-48. One of the things I remember most about that game is I broke a long run down the sideline, and my quarterback at the time, Casey Dick, came back and threw a block for me that pretty much sprung me into the end zone.”
Dial this bad boy up to about the 2:15 mark and you’ll see what he’s talking about:
My other favorite moment of his that he brushes on?
Q: Is that one of the biggest memories from your college career?
“Definitely. I would have to say so. Those games against LSU, and then I had several good games against South Carolina, too, that still stand out to me.”
He set an SEC rushing record against the ‘Cocks, so I can see why that would stand out. And you gotta love this clip, especially the capper at the very end.
All that talent in the backfield and Arkansas wound up going 8-5. Still, they were a blast to watch.
