I will start by saying that I don't really follow college football. I like Penn State, but truth be told, I am a very casual fan.
I add this disclaimer because I was listening to Mike & Mike in the Morning this morning, and they, of course, had Mel Kiper come on to blather about the draft.
After the usual niceties, they played a Kiper clip that basically intimated that if Matt Ryan is not drafted within the first 8 picks, he (Kiper) would turn the annual draft picking annoying over to Todd McShay.
I don't know much of anything about Matt Ryan. I just looked him up and confirmed the little that I thought I knew about him: That he was Boston College's quarterback. I am surprised I got that much right.
Is it too much to hope for Ryan being drafted 9th or higher? Lest anyone assume otherwise, I realize this scenario is unlikely to play out no matter what happens.
But I can dream, can't I? I can only imagine how nice it would be to never hear Mel Kiper again!
Too bad Al Michaels, Bob Costas or Tim McCarver didn't make similar statements.

Oh - I should also mention that Will Purdue has been guest hosting this week. I think it's him...Anyway, he made a Costas-esque blogger comment. He used the typical condescensing mother's basement reference but changed the locale to Hackensack, New Jersey.
