The University of Idaho can't even win when their players get drafted.
The St. Louis Rams made Vandal LB David Vobora the last pick of the NFL Draft, awarding him the title of Mr. Irrelevant. You know what they say, "Once irrelevant, always irrelevant."

Former BSU QB Taylor Tharp has signed with the Carolina Panthers. Take that, Vinny Testaverde!
Tharp will be the fourth quarterback on the Panthers’ roster, behind veteran Jake Delhomme, former Oregon State quarterback Matt Moore and former Northwestern quarterback Brett Basanez.With the fragility of Delhomme, Tharp stands a good chance to be a part of the team sometime this fall, and he may already be better than the last year's Carolina back-up, David Carr.

We sure did have a fun weekend with the NFL Draft. They should do this more often. Ryan Clady went No. 12 overall, Orlando Scandrick became a Cowboy, and the ESPN crew broke the record for most uncomfortable moments in a broadcast. The only thing missing was the Lions drafting a receiver.
Here is what we see happening in the next few days.
- Clady's new contract with the Denver Broncos will include performance incentives for touchdown catches and sweet end zone celebrations.
- Once he sees Cowboy headquarters in Dallas, Scandrick will change his MySpace mood to "off the chain."
- After no wide receivers were drafted in the first round, Vinny Perretta will have serious regrets about not turning pro after his junior year.
