Football Bits

Darren McFadden declared for the NFL Draft, on Monday. He could very well be the first Running back to go number one over all since Kijanna Carter. I mean hey, who doesn’t want to follow in that legacy. 1114 yards in ten years. That is a solid 7 yards a game. Thanks for showing up.

WVU-Michigan-Arkansas Love/Hate Triangle
Ryan Mallet who has withdrawn from Michigan with the arrival of Rich Rodriguez and his spread offense. Bobby Petrino and Ryan Mallet. Check out quitter camp. SUUUUEYYY.
Alright that was harsh, I really don’t blame Mallet. It isn’t like Rodriguez threw the welcome mat out.
Speaking of Rodriguez throwing stuff out, it seems that the records for every player who is currently at West Virginia University has disappeared.

Hall of Fame
It is voting time for the Pro Football hall of Fame. From a list of 111 players the list is now down to 17 finalists.
Two of the sure first Ballot guys are Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cris Carter and Washington Redskins defensive back Darrell Green .

. To be selected, a player must receive a minimum of 80 percent of the 44 votes. The 44-member panel consists of one media representative from each pro football city with two from New York, inasmuch as that city has two teams in the National Football League. A 33rd member is a representative of the Pro Football Writers of America and there are 11 at-large delegates.
I know Carter is a lock, but I will be interested to see how Randall McDaniel does. He was a premier guard for his era.
