    Until Ray married Jackie he admitted he was pretty mean in a bar. But the marriage changed all of that.

    You gotta look at this video of Ray addressing the Illini football team before a Purdue game. Best quote: " Butkus was a great linebacker, but who do you think was his idol?"

    At 6'3" and 240 he was pretty big for a linebacker in his day. Our ILB's are only 10-15 lbs bigger and Barnett is 10 lbs lighter...and Ray played 50 years ago!

    I just realized how the Miller Lite ad I posted earlier fits in with the thread title.
    Duuh!
