Tall for age in 9th grade, chosen MVP of state-wide basketball camp over several future D1 players. Decided I was Maravich. Coach disagreed.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) March 31, 20122523Is this awful?
Skip Bayless On Quarterbacks In The 2012 NFL DraftIn 2014, Skip said he'd still draft RG3, Luck, then Wilson. The person he'd take last, Wilson, is the only one of those players who has gone to and won a Super Bowl, and Luck has had more success than RG3 thus far, so he really got this one perfectly wrong.
Today if drafting 2012 over, I'd still go RG3, Luck, then Russell Wilson (who went 75th). Still believe RG3 can return to rookie of yr RG3.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) October 7, 20141815Is this awful?
