Who could ever forget Off-De-Mark-us Russell?

Since we're talking trivia, no QB from USC has ever won the Super Bowl.

I knew they ran the option or some version of it for a long time, but they weren't still running it in their last title appearance in 2001 were they? And even still, I know they haven't run it for the last decade+. That's a long time for a major school to have no QBs drafted.

I was discussing this with a fellow alum yesterday and he created a spreadsheet with every QB draft pick since the 2000 draft. The only current P5 schools with no QBs drafted since 2000 are:

South Carolina
Wake Forest
Minnesota
Maryland
Kansas
Colorado

Long story short, Nebraska was in pretty rare company.

Tangentially related, most QBs drafted goes to USC with 8 followed by LSU with 7 and then surprisingly, Louisville with 6.


Eric Crouch was running the option for Frank Solich

Whole lot of scouts on here running their mouths but no one willing to put $ on the line. Weird.

OK, ml wave, the bet is that TL will not play in a regular season NFL game, for any NFL team, the only caveat being that the top 4 QBs on that team get hurt and he is the only option available to said team. Five year window.

If I lose, then it is an automatic double-down that he will throw more than one interception in said game.

Dinner at any restaurant in NOLA of the winner's choosing.

Drafted, roster, or practice squad. The context at the time was how dumb he was for declaring for the draft, so that seemed fair, but whatever. Looks like you felt that he wouldn't get paid in the regular season, still feel that way?

There is no way to protect from "a sucker born every minute." Does that mean it's going to be a career? I seriously doubt it.

I have to agree with ml here that there original idea was that he was crazy to declare. While I think he declared because he heard he was unlikely to be locked in as the starter next year (or even likely to not start), it does seem to have worked out for him. Practice squad at minimum seems likely at this point.
