Why go to UM????

Postby gatorhart » Tue Jan 31, 2012 1:07 pm

We are hearing how some pretty good recruits are considering UM for their final destination. WHY????

Play before 30,000

Play off campus in a pro football arena

Most likely probation at least for a year

Play in the 4th or 5th best fb conf

On tv in the miami market for most the season

Less than average facilities

NO mozo heading into season....

IMO, if Champ can't compete with these second hand conditions, he is NO closer!

Live and play in Coral Gables. Unless you've been around it, I wouldn't discount it.

Any kid with nfl potential can now play wherever he wants. The exposure is 24/7.

This. No one still draws off of 80s/90s success and the NFL pipeline in the early 2000s the way miami does.

All those things that OP mentions are correct, and make you scratch your head. But there are positives to what they bring to the table, primarily based on where they're located.

You win some, you lose some. We have about everyone back in the secondary next season. We're already in great shape with the top CB in the state next year.

Bigger crowds of cleavage. EZ access to South Beach. Do you realize
how long my my drive from Jax is every weekend and sometimes I
forget my telephoto.

Because, if they fail at their NFL major, they can fall back on
their minor: Street pharmaceutical sales.

I went to SW Miami High (class of 73). It's near the Gables. So what? CG is a pretty town, but I wouldn't have wanted to go to college just 5 miles east of my home. Since my Dad earned 2 graduate degrees at UM, I've been to the campus many times. It never struck me as a traditional, "real" college campus like UF did when first showed up for orientation in July 73. I fell in love with the place as soon as I set foot on the campus and even though I only get back to UF 2-3 times per year for games and UFAA events (like this weekend), it still has a hold on me I can't shake even 34 years after I graduated.

Uhhhhh.....let me guess!

Because it's "The 'U'?"

I'll bet it's an easier school than Florida.

We play at Miami in 2013.

Big city, small campus, #1 academic school in FL, and hot sluts galore.
