First, thanks for the Sun Devil Sports post. Itís good to get back to sports talk. This is a good list but like any 10-best list, the bottom half always creates room for discussion.

In my case, I would replace Ryan Kealy with Mark Malone. Malone was a superb athlete. Good enough that Kush retooled his offense into an option look to take advantage of one of the first dual threat QBs. Good enough that the Olympic Committee recruited him to train for the decathlon. Good enough to be a first round draft pick of the Steelers. His game against USC, in the classic 1978 20-7 victory, should qualify him for a Top 10 spot. He accounted for all the TDS either by pass or run. I think he ran for 139 yards in that game. And he led the team in rushing that year. Another bit of trivia: although he was recruited as a QB, he also held the Steeler record for the longest TD RECEPTION with a 90 yard TD catch in 1985. That record lasted for about 25 years.
