had to share my conversation I had with a gator and a Seminole with my U brothers. So we were talking on who's the best and we all had our comments. Right now yes FSU and UF are better but when I said we produce NFL talent they both said UM fans always said that. I said isn't that the point besides getting your degree? They both said this and to me it's the biggest difference between us. They said when players leave their schools they don't care if they make it to the nfl. They ask me you guys care? I said yes we're a family forever. We care what happens to our players when they leave. Gators and Seminoles will never understand the family atmosphere at the U!!! Take that u damn punks!!! What do u guys think?
Totally agree with _ bro! No matter where u go after The _, u will always be family. No other colleges represent in the league like The _. For instance you don't ever see anyone doing the gator chomp or FSU chop when they score. But you do hear and see people repping the u and throwing it up all day everyday. And them boyz always come back for the kids once they make the league. It's Somn that's been passed down. It's a _ thang baby!!! +1 bro

That is why the _ invented swag we carry it with us, were a family you pick one another up when your down even when your in the pros. We represent the game of football even into the NFL that is why we are the most recognizable brand in CF, that is why everyone hates us, because the LOVE we put into the game and then some more into the NFL noone will understand that unless you bleed orange and green IT'S ALL ABOUT THE _ ALL DAY BABY!!!

Watch ya know about dem Miami Boyzzz!!!
Only the greats play here
The reason I don't care what happens after college cause I am not a pro fan. Is it nice for them to have success,sure but at the end of the day my worries always lean towards current FSU players. That is just me but I have always been more of a college fan due to how they play the game with more passion and aren't as greedy and self centered as professional athletes are. And that is for all sports.
It is what it is, each fan base is different from each other but one thing we have in common is we love our respective schools with insane passion.
That's excaybwhat I told them. The U thing is family and caring a out our players wherever they go. I can take it longer. We even support them when they're out of the nfl. Broadcasting.
Best example of Family I can think of, still bring a tear to my eyes. Clinton Portis had a shirt of Sean Taylor and pointed to the sky after ever TD. It's a U thing man, it really is
agreed. to be honest, the only reason i watch pro football is to watch the guys that played at Miami.
Carter and sometimes Bill Baskin
I understand what you're saying, but you also have to think that most of the players want a future in the NFL so if that's their biggest goal then the way that they translate from college becomes that important so that's where UM can always brag about
I want them to make it to the NFL, I just don't follow their careers afterwards cause how I feel about professional sports.
Fans bragging is just what fans do. If UM didn't have pro success the fans would find something else to brag about. Same for FSU fans, and so forth... I am not saying it is a bad or good thing, just giving my reasons of not caring.
Exactly...I could care less who wins...the only thing I watch an NFL game for is to see how the UM players do...and since pretty much every team has at last one, I can watch almost any game that's on TV in my market...
The U and The Strip - life doesn't get much better than this! P.S. - I will always stand with The _
that's what i do to. don't like pro ball that much. have to chek on my players from the u.
I remember that day man I still can't beleive he isn't in the backfield with my skins. I have been a skins fan since I was born, and some how he always comes up when I'm in a conversation with my dad how much love he put inti the game
