Florida Football Most Hated No. 7: Jack Youngblood
Once upon a time, QBs legit had to fear for their life because there were no protections for them from people like Jack Youngblood.
Opposing fans had no choice but to watch Youngblood make child’s play of opposing backfields as he racked up 29 sacks during his time with Florida, including five sacks alone during the 1969 contest against Florida State.
He also forced a fumble against Georgia on the goal line in 1970 that helped spark a comeback for the Gators.
If Youngblood had played in the color TV era, his name would be the cause of even more nightmares among rival college football fans.
