    Do you remember a tight end/hoops forward from about that era (a few years earlier actually) who went to Maine named Roger Lapham?

    The name sounds familiar. Probably a bit before I got there. I do remember Champ Godbolt and some guy named Rick Carlisle leading Maine to a near upset of Mark Aguirre and his number 1 DePaul team at the Bangor Auditorium. Aguirre was ice cold until the waning moments when he decided to pull out the win.

    You do indeed understand the question correctly, sir, and more importantly you upstaged everyone with your keen and astute knowledge of football trivia.  There's no sneaking one past your alert eye.  Congrats. :)

    Yeah, it's known forever (though decreasingly slow as modern passing erodes their records and time wears away the legacy) as the "Great Quarterbacks Draft."

    Four probowlers in the first round counting Ken O'Brien.

    12 of the next 16 superbowls featured at least one of these first rounders too.

    I didn't go to Maine, I knew Lapham from high school, he was a few years ahead of me. Great HS hoopster, played four years at Maine and then decided to play football while he went to grad school and was all-conference TE. Ended up getting drafted in both NBA and NFL.  His older brother played for the Bengals (and is their radio color guy) and his kid just finished up at BC.
