Did You Know...

I root for the underdog. The Mid Majors. The Small Markets. Screw the Yankees, Patriots, and Ohio State. Give me the Brewers, Royals, and Boise State any day of the week. I know USC would beat Boise 9 times out of 10, and the NFL draft is no different. The big boys dominate. Last year’s draft had 1 guy (Joe Staley, Central Michigan) from a non-BCS school selected in the first round. That said, you might be surprised at the number of players on the NFL All Pro team either from weak/non BCS schools. Let’s face it, North Carolina and Ole Miss are conference bottom feeders. Here’s the 2007 NFL All-Pro squad and where they went to school.

Do they not bother to name an All-Pro punter?
