In what should be a high-scoring affair, Chauncey Billups will make his second debut with Denver when the Nuggets visit Golden State. 10:30 p.m., ESPN


Allen Iverson

The Answer lands on his third team, the Detroit Pistons, and gets his best shot to win an NBA title since losing in the 2001 finals with the 76ers.

Phil Fulmer

Never mind the national championship he won a decade ago; the Great Pumpkin didn’t win enough since then in the tough SEC. The TV booth will welcome him.

Mike Leach

The coach went from unknown to the front pages with Texas Tech’s upset of Texas. Now he still has Oklahoma State and Oklahoma on the schedule.

Brady Quinn

The second QB taken in the 2007 NFL Draft finally gets a chance to start when the Browns throw out the former Golden Domer against the Broncos.

Barack Obama

Took control of a potentially painful interview with Chris Berman by demanding college football go to a season-ending playoff. That had to grab some votes.

TWT FIVE: 2007 NFL Draft Picks

In honor of Brady Quinn, the five best players a year and a half later:

1. Adrian Peterson (No. 7, Vikings, RB): Injuries have slowed him, but he has had the biggest impact.

2. Calvin Johnson (No. 2, Lions, WR): Flashing more talent each week. Imagine if he had a quarterback.

3. Joe Thomas (No. 3, Browns, T): Already considered one of the NFL‘s best tackles.

4. Michael Griffin (No. 19, Titans, S): Back at safety, he’s a key part of a tough defense for the unbeaten Titans.

5. Nick Folk (No. 178, Cowboys, K): Made the Pro Bowl as a rookie, but he hasn’t had as many opportunities this year.
