Marcus Ball remembers hearing about Tanner Marsh’s name and the major upset he helped Arkansas Tech manufacture against a top-ranked Arkansas program.

Talk to Ball about Marsh and Toronto’s starting linebacker recalls a college quarterback who became part of the football landscape for a fleeting moment.

“I don’t remember the score, don’t even remember when it happened, but it was way back at a time when Arkansas was among the top 10,’’ began Ball. “When I found out it was him (Marsh), it was like: ‘Okay.’ ’’

Marsh was more than okay late in last week’s wildly unpredictable win over B.C. after basically being turnover-prone for most of the snaps the QB took prior to Montreal’s final drive.

“We saw on film what he could do,’’ said Ball.

“He’s a very athletic guy, dangerous in multiple ways. The key for us is to keep him contained.”
