ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Whether known as Mon-TAY or Mon-TEE, running back Montee Ball made quite a name for himself during his record-setting career at Wisconsin.

Apparently he's got some work to do to become a household name in the NFL, though.

The Denver Broncos' second-round draft pick was a virtual unknown to at least one of his new teammates.

An NCAA record 83 touchdowns just didn't ring a bell with veteran tight end Jacob Tamme, who confessed he doesn't keep up with the college game except for Kentucky, his alma mater.

On a conference call with Executive Vice President John Elway earlier this week, a season ticket holder identified as Mike from Lakewood told the Broncos boss that he loved the selection of "Monty Hall."
