When Joe Campbell attended New Mexico State, he did a lot of studying. College students majoring in psychology have to do that. College linebackers learning to rush the quarterback don't have to study quite as much. "When I was in college, I would just wait for them to snap the ball, and then I would take off," Campbell said.
