Every few weeks I see one of those click bait articles that show celebrities that used to be athletes. Watching a talk show yesterday, Joel McHale was on and he was a walk-on TE at Washington. I did not know that. In an effort to not click on sites other than MGoBlog, who are other surprising college football players or athletes?
Jim Gaffigan-Purdue (He was #60 so maybe a 6'0" guard?)
Matthew Fox Columbia QB
John Goodman Southwest Missouri State
Tommy Lee Jones Harvard Guard
Nick Nolte Arizona State on scholarship (flunked out)
Ed O'Neill Ohio/Youngstown State and briefly for the Pittsburgh Steelers
There are a bunch of guys who everyone knows, Gerald Ford, Mark Harmon, John Wayne, Dean Cain, Bill Cosby, The Rock, etc.
