    That should be a reality check for Goodwin and Poythress.

    I’ll say one thing for Yogi Ferrell–he’s smarter than the average bear! Too bad he didn’t attend Baylor!

    How was Davis the first if Wall won? Only had to look back a couple of years. Too much research I guess.

    Wall, Sullinger, A.Davis are the last 3. Drew must have overlooked it.
