All ucif players that have made it to the NFL have been big bust or never lived up to their potential. Culpepper is a classic example of that.

You're right, Train Wreck. Asante Samuel has been terrible in the NFL, especially for the Patriots. Culpepper was equally as terrible in Minnesota. Brandon Marshall is doing horribly in Denver. The kicker, Matt Prater, led the nation his sophomore year in college, but you're right, he did awful in Denver this year.

You are right, some have busted, but others are definitely succeeding. Give Kevin Smith an offensive line (not the truly offensive O-line in Detroit) and you'll see him run all day. And when Mike Walker is back to full health, he'll be fine in Jacksonville. Also, watch for Atari Bigby in Green Bay.

On a side note, did Alex Haynes get picked up this year. I believe it was by the Packers, no?

He was picked up by Denver in early November when they needed a RB and then waived a short time later. He is not currently on anyone's roster.

I'm getting the Broncos and Packers mixed up, as they're collecting UCF players. Thanks for the update.

When I started as an undergrad at UCF, it was always fun to watch Haynes run. He was the all-time leading rusher at UCF then, as a grad student, we had Smith. I'm waiting for the next record breaking back before I finally leave!

I was going to say he was at Detroit, but its Micheal Gaines from UCF that plays TE there. I dont like the thought of three ex UCF players at Detroit. Ouch! Hey its still the NFL.

And with Culpepper in Minnesota, how many Super Bowls did they win, ah none. He was a joke in Miami and Oakland, enough said. Samuel is the reason the Giants won the Super Bowl last year by dropping an easy interception on the Giants winning drive, enough said. 24 Carrots is a joke and only went in the 3rd round because Detroit was stupid enough to draft him that high. He is not even in the top 15 of leading rushers this year, he is no Slaton, Johnson or Forte, enough said.

Please quit your idiotic chest thumping, you are looking like a total donkey. Burnett will be lucky to be drafted in the NFL, after all it is cusa. He would be lucky to play ball in the AFL.

How many Superbowls did Dan Marino win? Ah, none. So what's your point? DC was All Pro several times.

Wow, you are incredibility ignorant to compare Culpepper to Marino. That is like trying to say your pathetic little football program is on the same level as USC. Marino was in a Super Bowl, Culpepper, not. Marino was voted 1st team Pro Bowl 9 times and started 7 and Culpepper 2nd team Pro Bowl and no starts. You really should just keep your yap shut, you make ucif look stupid each time you post, but you are amusing.

Matt Grutadoria (sp), starting center for the Super Bowl Champion St. Louis Rams, Shawn Jefferson, 2 time Super Bowl starter for San Diego and New England, Darcy Johnson, currently with the New York Giants, all he does is catch TD's, 2 catches, 2 TD's, used primarily as the Blocking TE. Tom Coughlin has stated he is one of the best blocking TE's he has ever coached. Michael Gaines, believe he is the 2nd leading receiver in Detroit, don't forget about Josh Sitton, he was the starting guard in Green Bay before he got hurt, and that is when GB started their down turn. Also, Travis Fischer in Detroit, starting DB, he has had a nice career in NFL with St. Louis and Detroit. And last but not least, Rashad Jeantry with Cincinatti, he's been a starter since his 2nd year. These guys must really suck to be starting/playing in the NFL. What a tool that guy must be, he can't even do any research before making idiotic statements and making a total ars of himself.

And yet, Marino will go down as one of the most under-achieving QB's in NFL history, all becasue he would not call any running plays so he could stroke his ego and his stats, not exactly what I would call a team player. By the way, I believe Marino did not start the season when Miami went to the SB, he only played due to injuries.
