    Re: Matt Blair inducted into Vikings Ring of Honor

    Blair was so good at blocking kicks that the NFL changed the rule that you can no longer have a running start.

    As a side note, when a mentioned Iowa State years ago to a long time Arkansas booster, he immediately mention Blair, saying he was the hardest hitting player he had ever seen. Evidently they carried the Hog running back (Dickey?) off the field after a hit from Blair that he said could be heard anywhere in the stadium.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.
