Wait, wait wait, you knew who Mario Willaims was, but didn't know who McNair was? And you say you follow college football? I'm done.

Noone did. But that's not my point. Someone who says they follow college football, would know who Steve McNair was going into the draft, whether you "evaluated" it or not. When Steve McNair came out, I wasn't on the internet, and didn't know many people who were. But I knew who Steve McNair was. Now even having the internet and following college football even closer, I had no idea who Mario was. Steve McNair was breaking NCAA RECORDS in his college career, and someone doesn't know who that guy is, but knows who some one year wonder who wasn't close to breaking anything is? I just find that hard to believe. Call me naive.

Okay, but then, how does that qualify you to make a statement like

that maybe true but that doesnt mean he was well known before the draft or the combine... i remember askin myself who the hell steve mcnair was....
If you asked yourself who McNair was, you were obviously into the draft, 13 or not, and there had to be some players you knew, right? I was gonna give a pass on you being 13, but since you openly questioned yourself about McNair at such an age, you were advanced enough to have known who he was.

whodi, that makes no sense. he could have seen McNair's name anywhere, and been like, "who is this guy???" Steve was selected 3rd overall, and the Oilers were very vocal about their intentions to bench him his entire first year, which was rarely heard of up to that point.

Wait, how does that make no sense? We were talking about a player being drafted, and who was or wasn't heard of before the draft. Also, Alcorn State plays in the same conference as Southern and Grambling. Obviously by saying he had not heard of McNair before the draft or combine, he asked himself who he was after the draft or combine. If he heard of him before that, he would not have asked himself "Who is McNair" after the draft or combine. Seems pretty simple to me.

Wait, so this was your first draft ever? Is it any wonder why you may not have heard of Steve McNair? I disqualify your previous statement about McNair. The defense rests.

And did you not know of Southern and Grambling? Well, if you aren't from Louisiana, that one I could see. But if you did know of them, you know they played Alcorn, and that also would have let you know who McNair was. Maybe that's why I knew him. Either way, I just don't see how a guy like Steve McNair could have been called unknown. Again, call me naive.
