09:20 AM ET 09.29 | Miami quarterback Stephen Morris was not a happy camper after UM's 49-21 win over South Florida and didn't hold back. I asked him about signaling to the sideline to leave the game midway through the second quarter and he responded: "South Florida is a dirty team to say the least. "I don't know man. When your down under [the pile] and everybody is on top they're going to try and go for your ankles and everything. We were already up three, four touchdowns so I was like there ain't no point for me to try to mess with these guys. They're dirty. It is what is. I wanted to score 70 points on them. They disrespected us. I had no respect for them at all. At that point I felt like we should just keep pushing it, keep killing them." What were they doing? "Little stuff in the pile. Just dumb stuff," he said. Who was it? "I don't know who that is. Whoever was on the defensive line," he said.

This guy really impresses me. If he comes out this year he would be my #1 pick.

Suddenly this is looking like a banner year for QBs in the draft. Morris, Murray, Metenberger, Boyd, Bridgewater, Lynch,

Says the guy whose favorite NFL team just signed a 33 year old QB to a ridiculous contract and has no succession plan.

::sigh::

Morris' complaints ... we faced the same things in high school every year when we played FW Polytechnic, Dunbar, OD Wyatt and Paschal.

If you hadn't thrown in Paschal, would have needed FJJ's gif :)

LOL! But it was another day and time. Forced bussing (in the name of desegregation) took players out of their neighborhoods. The school with the best athletes, the one destined for multiple district championships, was closed for good (Como). Lots of unmitigated dislike back then which translated to dirty tactics under the pile.

What they shower once a month so I guess they are dirty somewhat.

I have watched Aaron Murray for couple of years now and watching him and Mett shoot it out yesterday was a treat. SEC is loaded with high quality qb's.

Miami Herald - Seriously? "When YOUR down under (the pile) ..."?
Do your writers have the spelling ability of a seven year old?
"When YOU (**** apostrophe) RE down under ..."
You have GOT to be kidding.
Time to learn how to spell better than a seven year old.

When accused of biting a finger in a pile, Butkis was reported to have said, "If I'd bitten his finger, I would've bitten it off."
