    This guy was a stud on a really bad team, and was one of the key components of their improvement in the late 70s.

    That is really too bad....RIP.

    I remember watching an Oklahoma game as a kid and there was a huge banner that read "Thank you Mrs Selmon." 3 brothers played at Oklahoma but this guy was on a whole other level.

    He played on the worst team in NFL history but they had a pretty good defense just because of him. One of the best defensive linemen in the history of the game.
