Watson was recruited by Florida, Miami, Nebraska and USC but only received a scholarship offer from Colorado State, mainly because of his uncertain academic status. Watson appreciated the Rams' willingness to commit.

Before he was even out of high school, Mitchell had played with Tom Lewis (Pepperdine) and against John Williams (Washington Bullets).

At least these teams aren't the warmed-over remnants of seasons gone bad. No more teams such as Florida, which sold only 1,200 tickets before slogging through the final comedown of a disappointing season in last year's game.
