The “Big Uglies” were a group of Texas Christian University linemen who helped pave the way for future NFL and College Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson to lead the nation in rushing in 1999 and 2000.

The “Big Uglies” earned the nickname during the ’99 campaign for their relentless effort, scrappy play, never believing they were out of the fight, and for their bad-ass attitudes.

They helped LT set a then-record 406 rising yards in a single game, a record that stood for 14 years.

The group has three members of the TCU Hall of Fame, eight all-conference awards, three academic awards, one All-American, and three NFL veterans.
