NFL players come home to UM for Hurricane-style workouts

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

South Beach can be a humbling experience for any football star with an ego. Not South Beach, the Miami Beach hotspot famous for its parties and beautiful people.

Shannon will turn this around quickly.
I always loved the way UM embraced former players. It sets a great example for the younger kids.

It's amazing how "other" schools are trying to get their Pro's to come back to their schools and mimmick the "U". Don't think you will ever hear that the "U" is the school thatstarted this program.

Here's a reality check. I don't care about what happens during the off-season. I'm only interested in what happens at the OB between September and January. And the last few years it's been CRAP. This story means absolutely nothing as long as we are losing 3 and 4 games each year. Turn it around when it counts, Shannon.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very proud of the heritage here. It's nice to know all the big NFL names hold us in such high regard. But look at our horrible play the last few years. This off-season program obviously has not benefited the UM players still wearing that uniform. Anyone remember getting whacked by Louisville last year???

Because Urbie is a total control freak. Coaches have to have control. Some, like Tom Coughlin and that little mouse that tried to coach the Dolphins a ways back take the control thing a little too far... ends up being a liability.

Larry Coker. he's gone, OK? It will take a little time to reverse the damage he did but the program is in the right hands for now.

One thing we found out through all of this. The U is not Dee and Coker proof.

I grew up in S FL, attended UF, but have mad respect for the U and it's players. There's definately a reason so many are NFL monsters.

Big deal! The NFLers go to the U to workout. I guess it helped with those 6 losses last season. Keep losing and watch those NFL boys dissappear! Too bad the U can't play former Canes but they are stuck with Larrys boys now! And what has Shannon done to prove he's not another Coker? Another 6 loss season coming up for the Canes this year!

It's been a long time since the Gators have beaten the Canes but when is the last time the Canes finished ahead of the Gators in the polls? You're thru and the Gators are just getting started! Two programs going in opposite directions. Enjoy your HISTORY!

This is why I LOVE my beloved Canes. There is a spirit that is never broken, and a loyalty that never goes away. There is nothing on planet Earth like Hurricane football. Go CANES!!!!

These workouts sound like a thug-fest but you have to commend their work ethic.
