"The Meanest Man in College Football"

says The Sporting News...

Matt Hayes wrote a fantastic piece in Sporting News about Burfict. There's lots of great stories about Vontaze and some of his famed athletic feats.

"(On) the first day of pads at ASU... the sound of one of his hits reverberated.

"The entire practice just stopped," former Sun Devils assistant coach and current Duke passing game coordinator Matt Lubick says. "We kind of looked at each other and said, 'Whoa, we've got something here.' "
