    it would have been a good life

    pro football bores me nowadays... college ball keeps me interested... unlike the pros, college kids play hard and they try and try...... those spoiled NFL brats barely even pretend to try anymore.

    Tom Brady was snubbed during his college career, only got to play his senior season. He said that only made him WORK that much harder to prove they were all wrong about his talent.
    Glad i got to see him play but i will not miss the game.

    The players in the big programs are just as pro as anybody. They just don't get to cash in until the NFL calls.

    Co-winner defensive player of the year for the SEC
    I wonder when the other winner got drafted.

    Ahh google is my friend

    CJ Mosley 17th pick first round versus 249th

    Just an observation, not a criticism.

So I hope he cam be as good as them, and we can talk about how he's a GOOD Linebacker instead of a GAY Linebacker.
    It's news, because he's gay and that if he hadn't come out of the closet, he wouldn't have been picked, at all.

    he might, but I think he's gonna have a very tough time overcoming his glaring weaknesses...

    I might be going on a whim here, but I'm going to say that felons in sports is not a new thing.

    Hell, I went to school with Russ Springer. I would have given my right nut to a pro baseball player at his level.

    How do you know that? He was a good enough player to take a late round chance on.
