    I was glad to be at that Homecoming game in 1989 against New Mexico...316 yards. Dominant.

      I’m at a conference this week and Emmitt was a speaker yesterday. Such a great guy filled with stories and great messages for all. I got to shake hands with him, he has a genuine smile for everyone he meets.

      Considering some of the headlines lately, nice to have a reminder of some of the class acts that represent gator nation.

          I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who wished me a happy 50th birthday! My birthday is of course always special because I get to share it with my son, @ejsmith_22. You are such a blessing and have a bright future!!! Emmitt Smith on Twitter

            Met Emmitt while living in the Ghetto with 3 other roommates. We pretty much had kegger parties every Saturday and had developed quite the fan following.

            While standing on the front porch with a bunch of others none other than Emmitt as well as Kyle Morris and some other players approached the door and asked if they could attend. Of course they were invited. The visit didn't last long as pretty much everyone was getting high inside the house. As Emmitt left the party I asked why they were leaving so soon and Emmitt replied dude we are getting really high off the smoke. He smiled and left with the other players.

              The '80s were filled with great running backs. Herschel Walker, Marcus Allen, Bo Jackson, Thurman Thomas, Barry Sanders.

              None of them was more entertaining to watch than Emmitt making something out of nothing with that incredible sixth sense.

                His posing in UGA gear didn't help him.
