Remember, Julius Peppers Played College Basketball

Julius Peppers basketball

We bring this up because it’s March Madness o’clock. It’s not quite fantasy football draft day or opening day at Lambeau, but it’s way better than Christmas, New Years or Passover. This reminded us that the newest member of the Green Bay Packers, Julius Peppers, once played college basketball.

He was no schlub either. Peppers went to North Carolina and you have to be pretty decent to get on the floor for the baby blues. Peppers wasn’t an All American in basketball or anything and he did double duty for just two seasons. In the 2000-01 season, he averaged 7.1 points and 4 rebounds while playing 17.6 minutes per game.

You could see his freakish athleticism on display pretty often though.

Interestingly, that pass came from guard Ronald Curry, who was also the quarterback of the football team.

Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.

    I’d like to be a freakishly athletic black guy for a week. I’d bet I’d get all the hot college Co-eds.

    More white guys than negros chose football over baseball, yet you dont see that in the news.

    Seriously is there a black guy who’s parents had under 29k in income who cant shoot hoops and dunk?

    Who fucking cares?

    He was awesome. But he was 21. At 34, he’s 95% done now.
