Ten random things: April 30

Ten universities with exactly one football player selected in the 2007 NFL Draft:

  1. University of Illinois (Alan Ball, drafted by the Dallas Cowboys)
  2. Coastal Carolina University (Tyler Thigpen, Minnesota Vikings)
  3. University of New Hampshire (Corey Graham, Chicago Bears)
  4. Nicholls State University (Jacob Bender, New York Jets)
  5. University of Minnesota (Matt Spaeth, Pittsburgh Steelers)
  6. University of Central Florida (Mike Walker, Jacksonville Jaguars)
  7. University of Memphis (Brandon McDonald, Cleveland Browns)
  8. Illinois State University (Laurent Robinson, Atlanta Falcons)
  9. Southern Methodist University (Justin Rogers, New England Patriots)
  10. University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (Derek Stanley, St. Louis Rams)

Speaking as a former Illinoisian, specifically as a former Chicagolander, I am amused that both University of Illinois and Illinois State had fewer players drafted than Northern Illinois.

Also, in case you were wondering, Nicholls State is in Thibodaux, Louisiana. I mention this because for some reason I have it fixed in my head that it's in Wyoming. So if you have a similar problem (though it's probably safe to assume you don't) now you know.
