I played Defensive End back in the day for Truman State.
We all chipped in $5 (about $35-$55 total).
Whoever could put a hit on the pretty boy and make him go sit down for a while, or make him cry or got the best shot on him or drew blood won the pool!!!
Yes, we could make them moan or cry!!!!!
(yes, I won a couple!!)
Of course these guys today would NEVER EVER do anything like that now, would they??????
