We know that Penn State comes to mind as linebacker U, but what schools are the "U" at other positions.

2 that come to mind right away is Miami as Safety U, BC as o-line U, and USC as RB U.

Thats the problem. Most Texas fans only started watching football a few years ago so they don't realize that other teams have been far more successful at producing NFL players. I don't think Texas is even in the top 10 in terms of # of NFL players.

Most of those players on that list started coming out during Dorsey's tenure with the team. Miami has only had 3 QBs since then. Dorsey (who has turned into a decent backup), Berlin and Wright (who is still in college).

It's not like they've had alot of time to send people out into the NFL. Most schools can't put out as many Pro Bowlers from their entire roster as Miami does as RB alone.

I heard the University of Tennessee get called WR U a few times. Not sure why tho. Donte Stallworth, Peerless Price, Kelly Washington, Cedric Wilson, Eric Parker, and now Robert Meachem are all former Vols, but I don't know if that makes them worthy of a WR U title. Though, I think its a very nice group of players.

If anything, I think Univeristy of Tennessee would be DT U. John Henderson, Albert Haynesworth, Darwin Walker, and now Justin Harrell. Not to mention, Hall of Famer, Reggie White. Those are just off the top of my head tho, and all were 1st rounders I believe.

I think a year ago (2006 season), Auburn had 5 Rbs starting for NFL teams in one weekend.

Stephen Davis at Carolina, Rudi, Caddy, R Brown, and Heath Evans was filling in at NE while Dillon was hurt. Also, Tony Richardson was starting at FB and Fred Beasley might've still been playing then (?). But FBs probably shouldn't count here.

Well then the debate goes to making the NFL vs producing in the NFL ? If thats the case then there are alot of schools that can be considered better then they really are at putting players in the NFL... is Washington St and breeding ground for NFL Talent ? They put a lot of players in the NFL... Ryan Leaf, Drew Bledsoe, Steve Brousaard, Erik Coleman, Jason Hansen, Steve Gleason, Reuben Mayes, Tim Rosenbach, Mark Rypien, Marcus Trufant, etc !!! Nobody on that list that is just tearing up the NFL but a list that spans a few decades of quality coaching at a large "U"

UM has a strong tradition of quality Teams but I would go to say better coaches and better organization then breeding ground for NFL. Miami has won a lot over the last 20 years but its been more of a star basis then based on great teamwork, meaning when they are great they are unstoppable... but when they are bad... they are REALLY bad..

There is LOTs of production with that group 4 of them have made probowls and almost all of them have at least started 15 games.

ChefMike
05-06-2007, 10:16 AM
I'll give you Bledsoe, Rypien, Hansen past that your looking at marginal starters or spot starters...but for the purpose of this thread...they are not the "U" of any position, much the same way Michigan is not QB U. I mean Elvis Grbac made the NFL based on production from Desmond Howard, Brian Greise made the NFL based on legacy, John Navarre had great college WR to throw too Braylon Edwards & Marquis Walker, Jay Feely ? must have some blackmail on Tagliabue to have lasted this long, Drew Henson ? Great HS player... etc

My one true fact that will tell you that UM is not QB U is that they have never had 1 QB win a post season award (Heisman, Big 10 POY, Maxwell, etc) nor have they had one since Jim Harbaugh ('86) to be in the Heisman Voting top 5 and prior to that I think it was Rick Leach who was 3rd in '78 !!

So again YES U of Michigan is a GREAT Program that produces NFL players but not great QB's... maybe WR U if anything...
Braylon Edwards
Steve Breaston
Anthony Carter
Desmond Howard
Amani Toomer
Tai Streets
Marquise Walker
"Crazy Legs" Hirsch

Miami has produced so many NFL elite talents at WR, TE, LB, and S. However, me and a couple buddies made a madden season drafting all players from a single university and simulated. Of course Miami had Kyle Wright at QB so it was an immediate 5 games lost with the computer using him lol, but TEN ended up winning the superbowl. (mainly due to Peyton and Jamal Lewis/Travis Henry). Just some food for thought.
On a side note: i bet the Denver Broncos think Florida has a good DLine based on their roster currently holding 3 or 4 (J Moss, M Thomas, Warren, and possibly Cohen as an UDFA) of them.

It has been said but you can't do this because you get too many idiots arguing back and forth how good USC's history is compared to Miami's recent times.

Make two new threads entitled: The "U's" of each position - All time" and "recent" and then sensible debate can happen.

Purdue defensive ends litter the NFL, whether they be at that hybrid rusher 3-4 spot, big 4-3 linebackers, or small 4-3 ends. I can think of a lot of guys:

Anthony Spencer
Ray Edwards
Rob Ninkovich
Shaun Phillips
Akin Ayodele
Rosey Colvin

And for some reason I feel like I'm forgetting someone. Okeafor, perhaps.

Historically, Purdue is the cradle of quarterbacks, featuring a pair of NFL Hall of Famers and Drew Brees. Heck, even the loser bust that's Jeff George went there for a year.

I see someone already mentioned this, but it's definitely worth repeating, especially the QBs.
