I think Georgia had more, although with two first rounders the Buffs were big underachievers.
UGA went to Liberty Bowl.
USC had the most with 9 draftees and obviously they were not eligible for a bowl.
Texas also had 4 draftees and missed a bowl game.
There are 3 Pac-12 teams that had 3 picks and missed a bowl game: Oregon State, UCLA, and Cal
And Notre Dame finished with one draftee out of 9 who applied. I guess you go there for the degree, but not to continue your football career...
Sheesh. With all the "fire Richt" talk I thought UGA didn't go bowling.
So we basically finished tied for 2nd in the Big 12 and tied for 2nd in the Pac-12 and tied for 6th nationally. Heres how we stack up
9: USC and North Carolina
8: Miami (Fla)
6: Clemson, Georgia, Iowa, LSU
5: Alabama, Ohio St, Pitt, TCU, Wisconsin
4: Auburn, Baylor, Cal, Colorado, UConn, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi St, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas, West Virginia.
well, i guess whoever the NFL scout who was in Boulder last summer who (reportedly) said NU had the most NFL talent in the conference was right.
tied for 14th nationally
duh ya, thats what I meant. Still pretty damn good company though. Texas, Florida, Auburn etc.
For some Georgia fans, anything other than the Sugar Bowl is a reason to be fired.
