See, half this board thinks the best thing our staff can do is sell NFL success at TE and DE to prospects at those positions.“The tradition of the tight end at Miami is becoming an automatic ticket to the league."
Context is a little different, but the last thing we need is a guy who thinks you just show up and it gets handed to you. That alone is probably the single biggest problem Miami has had in the last 20 years.
If we do that, then they repeat back to reporters basically what we've sold them on, the other half of the board says 'whoa, that's not the attitude we want to see.'
I happen to agree with you on this one, I'm over the NFLU thing and want to see guys who want to win in college, not pass through it. But it's interesting to see the consequences of the sales pitch we have people itching to run with.
