I was just going to post that. I checked, and I found that Branch and Johnson both have 3, and Boyd Dowler (a nominee for best NFL career for a CU alum), Dick Anderson, Barry Helton, and Alfred Williams have 2.Ted Johnson has three, all with the Patriots.
I’d call Ashworth and Solder more than bit players. They have two each.I was just going to post that. I checked, and I found that Branch and Johnson both have 3, and Boyd Dowler (a nominee for best NFL career for a CU alum), Dick Anderson, Barry Helton, and Alfred Williams have 2.
A lot of guys have won one, and it's possible that some other guys have won a couple as bit players.
This thread might be easier if the nominations were by position.Daniel Graham deserves some love in this thread. Mackey Award winner and consensus All-American. 1st round draft pick who won 2 rings and was considered one of the most complete TEs in the game for about a decade.
This happened before I was born, but I think I know my Buffs history. I'm going to do this from memory, and then go check the source book and make sure I got it right, so...I might seem like a complete noob here, but why was Bo Matthews the highest picked former Buff? He apparently was drafted #2 overall by San Diego in the 1974 draft.
His college stats are nothing special, and his pro stats are pedestrian, bordering on bust territory considering his draft position.
Someone who was old enough to watch him play help me out.
Hands down, White is the best CU student-athlete ever!Unfortunately he doesn't get the credit he deserves, but if he had played and accomplished what he did 20 years ago instead of almost 90, I believe no other name would be under consideration.
