I want to give special thanks to Demond who wrote me one day last year to say, “We’re doing a blog. It’s called 18to88.com. Start posting.” And with precisely that level of thought and care we’ve proceeded ever since.
I’m going to celebrate by smearing cake all over my face.
Robert Vaden needs only to get drafted by the Pacers to become one of my favorite athletes ever. Playing at Pike and hitting a game winning three in the NCAA tournament for IU gets you part of the way there.
I griped most of last year about how I’m not a draft/combine guy. This list from SI is one of the reasons why. You just never know about any of these guys until they put on the pads and start hitting. One quibble…I wouldn’t list Vince Young as evidence the Wonderlic is irrelevant just quite yet.
This is a fairly creepy article. I’m dying to hear what Sheffield has to say. I never thought I’d utter those words.
