The NFL Combine is the biggest chance many college players get to make it to the holy land of the NFL.
Players attend by invitation only and how they perform will affect their status for the NFL draft.
The combine takes place over a week in Indianapolis, where prospective players are put through their paces in a series of physical and mental tests in front of franchise coaches, general managers and scouts.
While many commentators are critical of the combine and the pressure placed on young players over the week long period. The combine has become a very important hunting ground to find the next superstar.
Every year, a new story emerges of a ridculous question asked to prospects as they participate in the combine. For example, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was asked by then Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland, if his mother was a prostitute. Harsh.
Another strange question was asked to former New York Giant Rod Babers in 2003. Babers was asked “When was the last time you wore women's underwear?”
While those two questions are certainly up there when it comes to inappropriate and plain stupid questions you would ask someone, the question asked of Kris Boyd, of the University of Texas, at this year's combine may well go down as the worst in history.
Speaking to Jeff Legwold of ESPN, Boyd was asked what was the strangest question he was asked during the combine, the defensive back replied with "Do I have both my testicles".
I have been to a scouting combine or two -- OK, this my 33rd -- and I have now heard an entry to the crazy-question question I've never heard before -- this today from Texas CB Kris Boyd -- “Do I have both of my testicles? And I was like yeah, I don’t know why you got to ask.''

Now, the number of testicles a player has is not going to affect how they perform on the field of play. Of course, if there was an appropriate time to ask that kind of question it surely would have been part of the medical portion of the combine.
But let's be fair there is absolutely no reason to be asking a player how many testicles they have, in any situation.
