Jim McMahon is one of the best college football quarterbacks in the modern era. The former BYU star led several dominant Cougars' teams, setting a number of passing records.
The Utah native went on to have a lengthy NFL career. He was taken No. 5 overall in the 1982 NFL Draft and played in the league until 1996.
McMahon, though, recently revealed that he wanted to play for a different college.
"I only went there because my dad wouldn't let me go to UNLV," McMahon said.
"They offered me a house, car, money, easy job at the casino... I would have been Steve Wynn if I went to Vegas, either that or dead from doing the strippers"
Things seemed to work out for him decently at BYU. He was a two-time All-American and a two-time Holiday Bowl MVP.
McMahon went on to win two Super Bowls and make the 1986 Pro Bowl in the NFL.
