The Four Categories of College Football Star-Turned-NFL Bust

My god, did I love me some Jay Barker. He didn’t play for my team, and I’m really not sure what exactly he did besides hand off and not make mistakes, but the man nevertheless oozed the constant oily sheen of a winner whatever he did in college. He went 35-2-1 as a starter. Let your jaw drop to the floor appreciatively, and then reread: Jay Barker went 35-2-1 as a starter in college. He was Captain Badass of the S.S. Asskicking Feastboat, and you were cordially invited to a keelhauling should you be so unlucky as to play them. He won, you lost, and that was too bad.
