Tonight, the Florida Gators will go head to head with the Oklahoma Sooners in the BCS National Championship game. Whether you like the college bowl format or not, this one should be a classic. The rich plot includes two Heisman trophy quarterbacks, two tremendously athletic defenses, and a head coach, Bob Stoops, who is looking to dominate a Gator defense that he helped patrol from 1996-1999.
What’s more than the game itself, when the victor has been decided, the long road to the 2009 NFL Draft will have officially begun. The senior class is a solid group of talent, but the notable underclassmen that have recently announced their ambition to join the NFL, has put the 2009 draft class over the top. The likes of Knowshon Moreno, Everette Brown, Chris Wells, and Andre Smith are just the beginning of a quickly growing talent pool.
Over the next 100-plus days, NFL Draft Headquarters will analyze the ongoing stories leading up to draft day, and will provide a unique perspective on these events. Stay tuned, because at around Midnight EST tonight, the journey will begin.
