My friend is from just outside Sacramento. He's a hardcore fan of Green Bay, the Oakland A's, the Clippers and Kansas basketball. I don't understand.

At 6' 6", 270, he runs the 100 meters in 10.9 seconds. His 40 time is 4.5-ish. BYU coaches say he's extremely smart and coachable - you can honestly see him improving, game by game.

He's so athletic, he's going to be a guy who shoots up after the combine and pro days. I wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in the 2nd or 3rd round.

I was born in kansas, to a Jayhawk family, where most of the people who went to college went to KU.

I had a choice. Root for Denver, the closest football team to where I was born, or root for a team in Missouri (The Chorfs). As a Jayhawk fan whose family ancestry actually fought in the Border War against those dirty slavers, the choice was easy. Root for the Broncos.

Baseball and Basketball (NBA) I dont follow all that closely but root for the local teams down here in Houston much to my recent chagrin.

So you can see, people can have varied allegiances to teams in various sports, depending on their situation. Not everyone is born in one place and stays there their whole life so roots for the home team.

Current student but you don't want to draft anyone from CSU unless it's the punter in which case that guy is a badass.

Yeah makes sense, I wasn't getting on your case. Was just reminded of my friend's allegiances, which unlike yours, make little to no sense. He grew up in a small town outside Sacramento, and let's be honest, who wants to be a Kings fan? Although they were good back then, with Webber and Bibby. I'll give him this though, he's die hard and never wavers as a fan. I guess that's a lot better than living in a city like LA and being a bandwagon Clippers fan.

To be fair, if you are a fan of any team, there are years you better be a die hard.

It's not easy being a Jayhawk football fan, or an Astros fan, or lately a Rockets fan.

It aint always easy being a Bronco fan. The only thing that is consistent is Kansas hoops winning the Big 12 and making the big dance.

I'm not a big fan of wing span. But I do know he can throw a football over them mountains.

Umm... I'm thinking...

Robert Herron, maybe, he's a small fast receiver who is usually hurt for 1/2 the season.

Nick Carlson, C, could maybe make it to the 2nd round of cuts in camp.

Kurt Taufa'asau, DT, never hurts to bring in a DT

Who I'm really hoping for is:

Dave Christensen, I think the Broncos should bring him in as a Public Relations guy and Ethics coach.

For sure. I give him **** about it sometimes, but the only thing that really matters is staying true to your team.
