That is an incredible photo, made all the more so that it features 3 early entrants.

Interesting tidbit:

Quote:
HARDEST HIT
LSU: No team in history has seen so many players bolt for the NFL in the same year, though the Tigers' 10 includes previously exiled star Tyrann Mathieu. It's a testament to just how much talent Les Miles has stockpiled in recent years.

So, what you're saying is that a squad of semi-pro defensive players were pushed to their limits and then some by a RS fish QB who was playing in only his 5th college game ever. Hmmmm... Think Wink (OK, OK... so what that the kid won the Heisman at the end of the season. One of those early LSU defectors to the NFL, Sam Montgomery, was saying during the season to "just give it to him." Big Grin)

Then this:

Quote:
BREATHING EASIER
Texas: In a telling sign of the Longhorns' talent decline over the past few years, no Texas players declared for the draft. It wasn't even a viable option for most.

So much for all the "top 10" recruiting that Mack Brown does. If he can't prep them to the next level, why are kids still going there? Oh wait... their defecting like rats on the Titanic. Never mind. Wink

And of course, the home team report:

Quote:
MIXED BAG
• Texas A&M: It's impossible to overstate the importance of All-Americas tackle Luke Joeckel and defensive end Damontre Moore (12.5 sacks) to the Aggies' historic 11-win season. It would have been stunning if either came back. But Joeckel's departure makes it even more important that his All-SEC bookend, Jake Matthews, is coming back. Matthews will move from right to left tackle to replace Outland winner Joeckel.

Has any team ever had back-to-back Outland Trophy winners before? There is a good chance that A&M might experience that in Luke and Jake.

Wow... just wow! Cool Big Grin Gig 'em

Cotton,

I am disappointed. Before I googled it, I knew that Nebraska would be the logical choice. It took all of thirty seconds to google that:

1971 Larry Jacobson DT Nebraska
1972 Rich Glover MG Nebraska

1981 Dave Rimington C Nebraska
1982 Dave Rimington C Nebraska
1983 Dean Steinkuhler G Nebraska

Hence the "Rimington" award for most outstanding Center.
