    The link below will take you to an exhaustive list of all the college football stars who bailed out on their respective teams to pursue the riches of a possible NFL career.

    The list comes complete with their heartfelt letters to their team mates and fans about how they'll "Always be a ____________ "( fill in your team's nickname here ).

    I don't know if you can change your picks or not. I prefer to leave mine, which were made before any of these kids abandoned ship, as is to see what the impact will be.

    I can proudly say that my Cornhuskers have not had a player bail on a bowl game in the 8 years. Could be longer than that, I'll have to check the last bowl game we went to. First I gotta remember who was President then....Bush jr. ?....I'll get back to ya.

    The Aggies will be starting a walkon freshman at QB. Hard to dig deeper than that...
    Oh, and so far 5 other starters are bypassing the bowl...

    Don, I hope not since I'm going to the Gator!

    It's a chance to see the new guys without anything to lose so it'll be fun even if we're outscored...

    I fell for O’Keefe’s Texas is starting a walk-on QB and changed my pick to my detriment. This place is becoming ruthless.

    He is practicing but they say he's not in game shape. Might play some, but won't be majority of the game if he does.
