There once when a time when Mike McNeil was a proud member of the 2011 BCS Championship-winning Auburn Tigers, now the former safety is serving a three-year sentence for armed robbery.

Charles Blouin-Gascon takes a minute to reflect on it all.

If you’re not already, it’s time to pay attention to the Broncos.
