Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Matt Leinart, Brian Bosworth and Heath Shuler yearn for college years in new commercial

Who says you can’t relive the glory days?

In Dish Network’s new commercial, college football stars turned NFL busts Matt Leinart, Brian Bosworth and Heath Shuler pine for their collegiate glory days.

It’s funny and sad all at the same time.

Leinart won the Heisman Trophy and a now vacated national championship as the quarterback at USC, Bosworth, nicknamed “The Boz” was a two-time All-American linebacker at Oklahoma and Shuler finished second in the Heisman voting as a quarterback at Tennessee.

The one thing all three men have in common is despite glorious collegiate careers, they did exactly nothing in the NFL. This commercial is the first of two starring the trio. We can all look forward to that in a few weeks.
