Viral Video: Exclusive Dru Hill Reunion then Break Up On Radio

1990′s R&B group Dru Hill was officially set to get back together on a morning radio show in their hometown Baltimore, Maryland. WERQ-FM 92.3 had the four original members, Sisqo, Jazz, Nokio, and Woody Rock all on the air on Thursday March 6, 2008.

Everything was going well as the platinum group with 7 top 40 hits was revealing their plans of a reunion. The interview goes as expected until Woody (approx 2:25 in the video) claims he is quitting again to follow a mission with god.

Dru Hill tour dates are still listed for the “Ladies Night Out Tour” with Bell Biv Devoe, Keith Sweat, and Toni! Tony! Tone’!. There are doubts into the authenticity of the fallout as some believe it may be a publicity stunt.

Either way, “The Thong Song” was one of the greatest moments in musical achievement in my opinion. This video is popular on YouTube… even if Dru Hill is not anymore.

NFL Hall of Fame Running Backs

Out of curiosity and the Reggie Bush hype machine, I looked at the NFL Hall of Fame members at Running Back. I wanted to see if there is any correlation between draft position and success at that position. Here is what I found:
Total Modern Era HOF RB/FB/HB: 24Marcus Allen (RB) 1982-1997
Jim Brown (FB) 1957-1965
Earl Campbell (RB) 1978-1985
Larry Csonka (FB) 1968-1979
Eric Dickerson (RB) 1983-1993
Tony Dorsett (RB) 1977-1988
Frank Gifford (HB-FL) 1952-1960, 1962-1964
Franco Harris (RB) 1972-1984
Paul Hornung (HB) 1957-1962, 1964-1966
John Henry Johnson (FB) 1954-1966
Leroy Kelly (RB) 1964-1973
Ollie Matson (HB) 1952, 1954-1966
Hugh McElhenny (HB) 1952-1964
Lenny Moore (HB) 1956-1967
Marion Motley (FB) 1946-1953, 1955
Walter Payton (RB) 1975-1987
Joe Perry (FB) 1948-1963
John Riggins (RB) 1971-1979, 1981-1985
Barry Sanders (RB) 1989-1998
Gale Sayers (HB) 1965-1971
O.J. Simpson (RB) 1969-1979
Jim Taylor (FB) 1958-1967
Charley Trippi (HB) 1947-1955
Doak Walker (HB) 1950-1955

First Round Picks:
Marcus Allen (10), Jim Brown (6), Earl Campbell (1), Larry Czonka (8), Eric Dickerson (2), Tony Dorsett (2), Frank Gifford (11), Franco Harris (13), Paul Hornung (1), Ollie Matson (3), Hugh McElhenny (9), Lenny Moore (9), Walter Payton (4), John Riggins (6), Barry Sanders (3), Gayle Sayers (4), O.J. Simpson (1), Charley Trippi (1), Doak Walker (3)

Second Round Picks:
John Henry Johnson (18), Jim Taylor (15)

Eighth Round Picks:
Leroy Kelly (110 Overall)

Undrafted:
Marion Motley, Joe Perry

Possible Future Hall of Fame Players:
Mike Alstott (rd2 – 35 overall), Jerome Bettis (10), Terrell Davis (rd6 – 196 overall), Corey Dillon (rd2 – 43 overall), Warrick Dunn (12), Marshall Faulk (2), Priest Holmes (undrafted), Jamal Lewis (5), Curtis Martin (rd3 – 10), Emmitt Smith (17), Thurman Thomas (rd 2 – 40 overall)

In summary it looks as though at this position, the talent is usually realized before they ever step foot on the NFL field. Sure there are plenty of busts that aren’t listed here (Salaam, Thomas, etc.) but there aren’t many players drafted outside the first round on this list. In this case Reggie Bush may have a chance at Canton.

Summary
(Including My Speculation on Future HOF’ers)
1st round picks: 24
2nd round picks: 5
3rd -7th round picks: 2
8th round picks: 1
Undrafted: 3
