Peyton Manning and Randy Moss were two of the biggest college football stars of 1990s. In fact, the two were finalists for the Heisman Trophy during the 1997 season at Tennessee and Marshall, respectively, but they could have been teammates in Knoxville, if not for some ill-timed tardiness.

Moss joined Peyton and Eli Manning for the "ManningCast" for Monday night's game between the New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During his appearance, Moss stated that he could've played with Manning at Tennessee, but Manning was the reason that it never came to fruition. 

"He wasn't punctual," Moss said regarding Manning. "That was the reason I didn't become a Volunteer. Peyton was late.

"When I went to Tennessee, all I heard was Peyton Manning was in Virginia at a family member's house. He is trying to drive back just to recruit you. I was like, 'Well, if he is driving here just to recruit me, why isn't he here right now to get me?'"
