Jimmy Graham played in the NCAA Tournament as a junior with Miami in 2008, when the No. 7 Hurricanes played Texas to a close 75-72 loss in the second round after eliminating St. Mary’s.

Broncos quarterback Charlie Morton looks to pass against the Cowboys during Super Bowl XII at the Louisiana Superdome on Jan. 15, 1978.  Morton completed 4 of 15 passes for 39 yards and 4 interceptions in Denver’s 27-10 loss to Dallas. Based on the assumption that it gets no worse than zero — Morton’s record-low passer rating on this day — this is easily the worst performance by any quarterback in Super Bowl history.
