Ha! I remember scouting the film of that game because we had you guys the following week. His NFL success was no surprise because you could clearly see he was a baller.

We went up against App State in 2000 and, after knocking their starting QB out of the game in the 2nd quarter, we felt pretty good about our chances until his backup -- (now) ESPN's Daniel Jeremiah -- came into the game and absolutely torched us.

I remember future NFL HOF'er Asante Samuel (UCF) and All-Pro Gerald Sensabaugh (ETSU) just toying with our QB's like the receivers weren't even there.

Our punter briefly went viral in 2018 -- thanks to Pat McAfee -- after turning himself into a cruise missile and getting ejected for targeting at Army. So, there's that.
