I knew Starks would do well in the NFL. Very smart, all-around half-back. I was begging for the Giants to take him in his draft year.
Dude! Same here! I graduated in '12, so my freshman year ('08) was the glory days of Naaman+Willy+Starks.

After the hail mary against Temple that season, when everyone stormed the field I high-fived Naaman, and slapped Drew Willy on the shoulder pads a bunch of times. One of my highlights from UB

I had the same thoughts on Naaman for the exact same reasons. I thought for sure he would make a great #4 for a team. Such consistent ability. And this year with the Bills having their QB troubles, I was hoping they'd give Willy a shot... but Willy seriously suffers from Pennington arm, so I'm not surprised that he couldn't cut it at the NFL level.

There are a few other UB guys 'round these parts. I know for certain that Guess What is a current UB student.
