Even if you count McQuarters... Which is a joke. That's 3 guys in a 20+ year span!!! I wouldnt call that a ton... Its A few. And only one of those guys is great...

So much for OSU putting offensive juggernauts in the NFL!!!

Pettigrew is a badass. Hart Lee Dykes and Thurman Thomas were pretty good too.

Like I said, that is just off the top of my head without looking it up. There are obviously others. I am actually not a huge NFL fan so I wouldn't be able to tell you every single person.

I was just adding more off the top of my head as well. Okung is an OT but a star as well. GL against Stanford in the Fiesta Bowl. This Sooner fan will be rooting for you guys to win big!

Hell... Ole Miss which is one of the worst SEC teams probably has just as many players in the league during the same span as OSU. That statement above is simply not true... OSU's talent pool for the NFL doesnt begin to compare with the class of the SEC.

It compares with the lower tier SEC schools at best.

Us Texas fans are not bitter about it at all, just disappointed & wistful. It was a clean hit on McCoy - but our OC was a moron for calling that play. Thank gawd he's gone.

Bama dodged the bullet.

What's funny is the trash talk from Bama fans about their superiority airs. They were just lucky, that's all.

I don't think winning 37-21 was luck.
