    "The U"

    Anybody watching this? Real interesting film on ESPN right now about building the U of Miami program from absolutely nowhere.

    I love stories that show how something impossible can be done, even where it had never been done before.

    Re: "The U"

    Right now, they're talking about that 58-7 beatdown over Notre Dame in Faust's last game.

    I'm pretty sure that Miami and plenty of schools have pounded schools that aren't Notre Dame. Was that really somehow worse, doing it to Notre Dame?

    Good night. I cheer for anybody that plays for Nebraska after those historical beatings we call the 1980s and 1990s.

    Notre Dame deserved to get the score run up on them...they'd been doing it to teams for years and did so for many years after. Their holier-than-thou attitude makes me sick...god forbid anyone embarrass Notre Dame...teams should just roll over and play dead against the mighty Irish

    I don't remember hearing anything when it's happened to us.

    Prank calls to Oklahoma the night before the game, that's funny.

    I'm right at the spot where they kicked OU's ***; the most interesting part of this is how Schnellenberger went into the inner city to get kids to play for him.

    And he united kids that were apparently not the closest of friends into a team/program.

    Dan LeBatard really needs to learn how to put a curve on his hat.

    What is interesting, is nobody is saying how they got all those guys
    academically eligible. It is an interesting program, but I'm not buying
    that is was all above board. Seems more like a promotional video for Miami.

    Anyone else think, Kosar, may have gotten his bell rung a few too many times? He
    kind of seems like an old homeless guy.

    Pistol shooting was awesome in the Cotton Bowl.

    And how much does this help Miami recruit now? Incredible
