    Only 10 BCS teams without a player drafted

    Just saw it on SportsCenter and got curious and looked them up on ESPN.com
    These are who I came up with, I did it fairly quick but am pretty sure it is right:

    Stanford, UCLA, Washington, Northwestern, Minnesota, Kansas, Indiana, Miss St, Duke and of unfortunately ISU.

    Re: Only 10 BCS teams without a player drafted

    UCLA should never go a year without having a draft pick. I can see why some of the others might once in awhile.

    You could reasonably look at that list like this: These are the ten teams who are losing the least amount of talent from last year's team to this year's team.

    Re: Only 10 BCS teams without a player drafted

    It's interesting that all those teams are from major conferences - and I assume that means that even teams at the bottom of the WAC, MAC, CUSA, etc. did have guys drafted. That seems weird.

    You look at our team, and we only started a couple of seniors, and we weren't very good. I think there is NFL talent on this team (Franklin, Arnaud, LJ) but they aren't seniors.

    Re: Only 10 BCS teams without a player drafted

    Well (according to ESPN), considering ISU only had one player in the draft and he likely wasn't gong to get drafted anyway, I wouldn't necessarily look at this as such a big deal. Get back to me when we have 5-10 players in the draft with a few of our role players entering and none of them get drafted...

    Exactly. We didn't have a lot of seniors graduate who were really talented and were expected to be drafted. I don't see this as a big deal this year.

    You guys are missing the point.

    Its not that we didn't have any of our eligible guys (1) drafted. - its that we didn't even have one player talented enough to get drafted this year at all - while most every other program did.

    we'll hope its just a one year fluke.

    Interesting that some of those teams have been brought up as examples of teams that we should be more like (Stanford, Minnesota, Kansas) and yet they still didn't have any players drafted. Like someone else said, it could mean that the best players from those teams are all coming back this year. It could also mean that ISU has a breakout season waiting to happen.

    Re: Only 10 BCS teams without a player drafted

    Another interesting nugget of information. Miami, who had been riding a 14 year streak of having a Hurricane player selected in the first round had to wait until pick #176 to see Spencer Adkins fall off the board to the Atlanta Falcons. Perhaps now in the pre game introductions we'll go back to hearing the players say "University of Miami" rather than 'The U". Their pride certainly has been hurt.
