SportsDay has a story about Oklahoma football coach Lincoln Riley noting there was a chance he might have ended up battling for the quarterback job in Hanover after a solid career at Muleshoe High School, the alma mater of former Dartmouth DB Joe Adams. From the Dallas Morning News SportsDay story about Riley, who graduated from Muleshoe in 2002:
When Riley filled out recruiting questionnaires, his SAT and ACT scores made more impact with some coaches than his measurable football skills. Seemingly overnight, the Ivy League discovered Muleshoe.
Who knows what would have become of Riley had he gone to Dartmouth, which seemed most interested, instead of his eventual landing spot at Texas Tech.Murry Bowden was mentioned in Monday's BGA Daily.

In case you are wondering, sunrise was at 5:05.
