That is a great story.

I love Corliss.

But I don't guess anyone has heard of Mr. Andrew Lang.


He blocked 22 shots against my high school!

He is playing in Italy and doing well. Still making good money, so his career is still happening, just a different turn.

Funny story, talking about big men. During my time on the hill, the team would come and "practice" before the actual time they were allowed to. No coaches were allowed so Beck was in charge and it was obvious he had his marching orders, because they split into two teams of five and whenever anyone on either team would mess up Beck would stop the game and chew their ass. Apparently Lee Wilson was supposed to work on being aggressive, because whenever he got the ball down low, if he did anything besides try and power it to the hole Beck would stop the game and scream at him "Dunk that s&!t Lee, dunk it! WTH are you doing." He finally got mad and started playing super aggressive, I can't remember if it was Corliss or Darnell but he DOMINATED them the rest of that scrimmage. I never saw that side of him before or since in a scrimmage or game, but when he got really pissed and played physical, no one on the team could handle him. Would have loved to see that in a game.

Him outplaying Shaq is something I will always remember.  One of the all time greatest performances by any Razorback in any sport IMO.  Big O showed Shaq what he was made of.

Favorite Big man would be Rosie Wallace.

Best would be Miller or Lang.

I went to high school with Lang. There was no one that could touch him then. In college, he was the best player on some not very good Hog teams (PG Scott Rose anybody?). He had a decent pro career. Always had a smallish upper body. I always thought that if he would bulk up and get stronger he could have been an amazing pro.

When I first got into the Runnin Razorbacks Dean Tolson was a Jr that had averaged 15.9 pts and 9.9 rebounds per game as a soph. As a Jr he went 17.6 and 12.4 as a Sr 22.5 and 13.2. Rumor was someone got on a ladder and placed a $100 bill on top of the backboard and told Dean he could have it if he could grab it.................SWC wasn't very good then but Dean and Martin Terry were aweson players under Van Eman. Dean had 6 20+ rebound games and 6 30+ points games with 2 40+ point games.

Big O was definitely the most skilled center we've had, Scott Hastings was a stretch 4 before there were stretch 4's. Joe Klein was a great back to the basket center that played against 2 longtime NBA centers on a regular basis and more than held his own. Corliss was a little big man that got it done time and time again on the biggest stage.

Favorite Big man would be Rosie Wallace.

To this very day I am slightly miffed that Coach Richardson wasn't starting Rosie over IBM. Rosie was clearly better, in my view. Of course, Rosie never made it to the league so I guess the NBA scouts also agreed with Coach Richardson's assessment.

He wasn't very skilled, just extremely physical and fearless. Think Michael Sanchez with a death wish.

What ever happened to Darnell Robinson?  Wasn't he "the all-time scorer" in California in high school?"  were there no tall kids in California high schools?

Darnell was great coming off of the bench his Freshman year. He had a Huge impact on the Hogs play during the NCAA Tournament. Had he kept his weight at around 245 LBS like Nolan wanted him to, he would have been an All American by the time he left for the NBA. Unfortunately he listened to the wrong people and got bad advice, ballooning his weight to over 270 LBS and was never the same player he was as a freshman.

My personal favorite was Joe Kleine.  I use to run into him in the Sacramento bars when he was with the Kings.  We would talk some Hog sports and just hang out tossing a few brews with Pete Chilcott and sometimes Reggie Theus.


Joe was a great player. I remember the year Joe Transferred to Arkansas and had to sit out, there was a guy playing Center for the Hogs who was actually a Power Forward and had a bit of an NBA career (His name escapes me). Had Joe signed with the Hogs out of High school, that guy and Joe would have played together and they would have dominated the lane.

We didn't really play with a true center. Scott Hastings was 6'10" and would post up some, but he had very nice jump shot. Walker, Robertson, Peterson, Downtown Tony Brown and Scotty Hastings. Hastings was like 19 pts 6 reb and if memory serves me went Top 10-15 to the Knicks.

The Big Nasty was a big man in the game but for centers while playing at Arkansas.. in no order.. Big Joe from Slater Mo, Big O and Scott Hastings... how many years combined NBA is that?  ....Conference Titles?  NCAA final 4's?  NBA Titles?

Some forget about Darrion townes.  Even tho he was kind of a wuss off the court, in the court he usually ended up being pretty dang good.  That one year Delvon Johnson came out of no where and was pretty dang good as well!  Corliss was a great college player.  If only he had been 6'8 Or 6'9. He'd been a true superstar in NBA.  He had a decent career tho, got 6th man of the year once.  Portis was pretty good.  Kingsley good, better his Jr. Year tho.   Oliver Miller if he could have just kept his weight under control, he'd been even better..  Kleine was good, I also tho Andrew Lang was awesome.  That's as far back as I go tho.

Scott Hastings has to be somewhere in the rankings.

So I'm a Denver Nuggets fan (insert your snarky insults here), and Scott is the color guy on Altitude Sports. He's really good and pretty funny to boot. I'll tweet at him every now ad again with a deep cut hog reference.

I don't think of Corliss as being a big man, he is a forward to me.

Best big man to me has to be Joe Kleine. #6 over-all pick in the 85 draft, 15 year NBA career, US Olympian.

Big O and Scott Hastings would be next.

Gafford has the potential to be right there with theses guys.

This Miller was a true big with talent but Williamson anchored the middle undersized and dominated!

The next tier for me would be Wilson, Robinson and Big Stew.

Corliss may have not been a "Big" man , but he was the best we've had around the basket in a long time.
This....if Corliss had been an inch or two taller we win back to back national championships. UCLA 'gooned' Corliss from the jump start and the refs allowed UCLA to do so. But to answer the question of the thread, we are watching him right now. Daniel Gafford is a true #5 therefore he is the best BIG MAN ever for the Razorbacks.

I know you are right. Tolson was a great rebounder and scorer. Maybe the best we have had but it was a long time back. But damn he was really a great player.
