    Temple having more guys in the NFL than CU right now makes me want to puke.

    I would have said SC before looking but it doesn't surprise me to see the Canes at the top.
    Truly disappointing to see how far down the list the Buffs are. Not enough talent coming to Boulder toward the last of the Barnett era and all of Hawkins time here.

    Only 9 BCS programs have less. I mentioned this yesterday, but we also have the 3rd longest bowl drought behind Duke and Wash St.

    We've had pretty bad numbers for at least a few years now. Gotta start chipping away at this and climbing the ladder. Doesn't *always* indicate great success on the gridiron (usually does), and obviously helps your recruiting pitch to recruits in a major way.

    For some reason I did not imagine ASU or Utah having that many draft picks and I was also surprised Oregon had so many in the NFL although if I remember correctly most of them are defensive players.

    Iowa and Cal really surprised me. And Oklahoma surprised me with how few. I thought they would have a lot more than that.
