During this morning’s monologue explaining why being on a good Florida team in college actually hurts Tim Tebow’s pro potential, ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd spewed this gem about Buc’s QB Josh Freeman:
“You think Kansas State University is even close to Oklahoma, Nebraska or Texas in terms of quality recruits?… Kansas State is the least glamorous college program, say what you want, maybe in the country. It’s in Manhattan, and I’m not talking New York. Manhattan, Kansas. Try to find it on a map.”
Love him or hate him, Cowherd has a point. Many of today’s better NFL quarterbacks have come from less than stellar college programs, including Freeman and K-State. Drew Brees? Purdue. Phillip Rivers? NC State. Tony Romo? Eastern Illinois. Jay Cutler? Vanderbilt. Ben Roethlisberger? Miami of Ohio. Perhaps playing among less-talented players in college prepared these perrinial Pro Bowlers to raise the play of the players around them.
