Whatever we did to deserve guys like Lingard, Mallory, Jordan, Scaife, Pope and a handful of others to be in this class together, we should be grateful for the blessing. They're soon-to-be HS Seniors, but they walk and talk like professional men. Like they've been there - even though they haven't even stepped on the stage. We've already seen what players like that (e.g. Shaq Quarterman) can do very early on.

Add them to the 2016 and 2017 class. It's going to get unique here in a minute.

There are a lot more guys who seem to have figured out that if they learn to win now, it pays off later. There's been too many kids looking ahead to the NFL, and there's been more than a few that ended up doing better in the NFL, than they did at Miami. I really like the attitude these kids and kids like Quarterman and Richards have.

I'll tell you what happened. UM finally got its head out its ass and decided it wanted to be a real football program again-- real coaches, IPF, real camps, etc. Elite players like this are the return on that investment.

When you think back to Howard's days forward, we use to have tons of guys like that with just a few works in progress to handle. Somewhere we got off the road of finding the men who sill just happen to be boys and ended up with to many boys in men's bodies. Think back to when Mark was FIFTH in the group of QBs behind 4 1st round picks with one Heisman and NFL HOF in the mix and he ends up D1HC.

To often we fans buy into the image of thugs who were super athletes, when in fact our glory years were full of strong, hard working, menfolk with a lot of brain power in the mix. If I am not mistaken, the graduation rate in JJ's years was north of 60% -- on a par with ole Po Pa and far above St Bobby down in the teens. Did we have a lot of bad boys, sure, but no as bad as they liked to pretend and most of the "bad" played out o the field not the street. Thrill Hill got his own NCAA rules from the Cotton Bowl, but I think he also graduated school with a Masters Degree -- not bad for a "thug".
