    Rod Gerald Was the QB who followed Cornelius Greene in 1976.
    I saw him Play and I can tell you that he was as quick as anyone I have ever seen at the QB position. He had Pete Johnson and Jeff Logan in the backfield with him. Together they led the team to a 9-2-1 record in his first year and a bowl win over Colorado to end the year. They ran out of several backfields including the option and Full backfield.

    Actually, he got hurt and didn't play in the UM game that year. Came back in the Orange Bowl to ice the victory. He was an exciting player. The QB in the famous OU game with Springs that lost on the final play of the game.

    Two things I always think of with Gerald was that he moved to WR as a JR so Art S could start at QB as a true freshman and the role Woody had in his life after football(drug addiction issues).

    Looks like this thread should be called the Casey Gerald thread. Great story about him. Sad story about his parents.
