We all know it didn't go down that way. Oher, the All-American tackle, was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens No. 23 overall and has started all 13 games for the Ravens.
However, with hindsight being 20-20 and all, the venerable Don Banks over at SI.com had a do-over of the most recent draft and decided the Lions needed Oher at No. 1.
Also of note, Banks had former Rebel speedster Mike Wallace going back to the Steelers, this time just two round earlier with the last pick of round one.

On autumn Saturdays when Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is packed with 65,000 whooping fans, it may be tough to associate Oxford with anything but football.
But in a place named for a scholarly English city and that is home to William Faulkner's columned retreat, Rowan Oak, paperbacks take precedence over quarterbacks, especially at Square Books. Its tens of thousands of volumes include autographed copies of works by southern authors like Eudora Welty.
When not reading, residents pedal the city's fast-growing network of bike trails. "I was surprised to learn Mississippi could be so progressive," says Kevin Stuart of Oxford Bicycle Company.

The NCAA released its first version of the national statistics today, and Ole Miss is all over them. The team ranks ninth in the nation in goals per game (3.67) and seventh in goals-against average (0.167). That means Ole Miss is currently one of the nation's top 10 teams both offensively AND defensively. The Rebels are also ranked high in shutout percentage (9th at 83.3), win-loss record (26th at 5-1) and save percentage (14th at 92.9).
