Nice semi-comprehensive rundown of area recruits by the Miami Herald.

My favorite: the guy who has never played in a high school football game but he had some sacks in the spring scrimmage so now Arkansas is interested in him.

It must be nice to have so much talent right out your back door. Half the class in two counties. I wonder how many of the other half are from the rest of Florida?

anybody ever graduate from Miami u?

Depends on perspective. To U football players, "graduating" means the courts let you take off the ankle bracelet.

Once the NCAA sorts out the investigation debacle, the only licks will be the U licking its wounds.

Have a higher graduation rate on our football team than a lot of other big time D1 programs and the university as a whole is ranked way above the majority of big D1 football schools... the baseless venom you spat just shows how ignorant you are.

Yes, grad rate has gone from the mid-40s to over 70% the last decade. Still waiting on the result of the probe, though. That's not hate or ignorance; that's reality.
