Now I'm not going to say that Miami is every position U, I'm just showing that we are in the top 5 at every position, which allows us to claim being NFL U.
QB U: Having two Heisman Qb's, in Gino Torretta and Vinny Testaverde, as well as a NFL HOF QB in Jim Kelly, is enough to bring Miami to a top 5 finish in this category. But when you add in the Other Three quarterbacks who brought home nation championships, Steve Walsh, Bernie Kosar, and Ken Dorsey, It is hard not to award this title to the Hurricanes. If this was in 2002, then We are clearly QB U, but unfortunately as of late we have struggled, while USC had Matt Leinart, Carson Palmer, and Mark Sanchez. Florida State has done a pretty good job as of late too, and is pushing Miami for second, but hasn't quite passed Miami, even with Ponder and Manuel.
HB U: Rivals did a list of who is HB U, and came down to Texas and Miami. Regardless of who your favorite team is, USC, Miami, and Texas are three teams that should automatically rise to the top when deciding which school HB U is. Personally I think that USC is number one, it really doesnt get better than Oj Simpson, Marcus Allen, and Reggie Bush. However, Miami is second on my list because of Lamar Miller, Frank Gore, Willis McGahee, Clinton Portis, Alonzo Highsmith, Otis Anderson, and of course, Edgerrin James.
WR/TE U: Looks like Rivals also thinks that we are the best school for pass catchers, giving us the top spot in their list for wide receivers and tight ends. They don't even include Michael Irvin in this list because it was supposed to be a "present list", although you could just make it an all time list, and it would have the same results.
LB U: I know Penn State is known as LB U, and Its hard to argue with them about that. But really, this title could go to one of three schools: Miami, PSU, and USC, sorry UCLA but you aren't even close. All I know is Ted Hendricks and Ray Lewis are two of the best ever to play in football and college. This can go any of three ways, and you can't really be wrong who you choose.
DB U: According to Athlon Sports, Miami has four of the top 50 DB's of the BCS era. Including two in the top 5! Not included on this list (because it is a BCS era list) are: Burgess Owens, Darryl Williams, Ryan McNeil, Duane Starks, Mike Rumph, Kelly Jennings, Brandon Merriweather, Kenny Philips, Sam Shields (though he played mostly wr with Miami), Brandon Harris, Demarcus Van Dyke, and of course, HOFer Bennie Blades. LSU, Sorry, but no, you are not DB U.
Im Just saying, we may not be Every Position U, But we are in the top at every position, including the leader at wide receiver, tight end, Defensive backs, and linebackers. The only other school with a pedigree of being as great as the University of Miami, is USC. This is why Miami is one of the greatest teams ever in College Football. We are the overall NFL U.
