I was thinking about the situation with this kid. And than I had an amusing connect-the-dots moment. Let's suppose for a moment that Ryan Tannehill - who "would have been the top-rated QB in this years draft if he had stayed in school" - did stay in school.
He would have been A&Ms starting QB. Manzeil would never have seen the field. Would never have won the Heismann. And we wouldn't be hearing about the Manzeil/A-Rod story incessantly.
Kind of funny how things work out.
Now the question becomes whether Tannehill lives up to that hype...forget about the first preseason "scrimmage".... we'll know soon enough....
