whoosh.
All five would play in the NFL for a combined 36 seasons. One would make the Hall of Fame and win a Super Bowl, so Jerome Bettis went first. What if Bettis, offensive lineman Tim Ruddy, linebacker Oliver Gibson, tight end Oscar McBride and safety John Covington joined forces? After a night out around South Bend, watching Chris Zorich lead a pack of nearly three dozen players from establishment to establishment, what if these five prospects — three were USA Today All-Americans and Gibson was the national defensive player of the year — came together?

“If we came here, we could run college football,” Gibson said. “It was like Voltron coming together with all these superpowers.”
