What Might Have Been: Ndamukong Suh At Oregon State?

The bulk of Mike Riley's interview with Bruce Feldman is hidden behind the In$ider paywall, but this one tidbit is too good not to be shared, a what-if of terrifying proportions (in more ways than one):

↵
Did you know that [Oregon native] Ndamukong Suh almost transferred to Oregon State back at the time when he was thinking about it? From our side of it, we'd never heard about it. Then I thought, "What if we would've had Stephen Paea and Ndamukong Suh next to each other?" We wouldn't have had to rush more than two guys.

Colt McCoy's traumatized bone marrow thinks that would've been just fine.

The rest of the interview includes some great anecdotes about Riley's on-field years at Alabama during the first years of team integration; read it here.
