Plummer is one of the few guys I can honestly say I believe never did it for the money, he did it for the love of the game.

even though he was in the Heisman race 2nd IIRC that year, he said he really had never given any thought of playing in the NFL..

He also said that getting paid for doing something he'd normally do for free was funny to him..

he drove boxy old honda, wore jeans and t shirt dated the cheerleader and was a millionaire.. how many on this forum would have loved to have that life..

every time they needed money for ca space he agreed to a new contract always getting the up front money and stashing it in the bank opposed to getting bling..

so when it was time to walk away he could a rich man..

the ultimate gamer..
