I'd beg to differ. I guess you forgot about Jim Kelly, Michael Irvin, Cortez Kennnedy, Russlell Maryland, Bennie and Brian Blades, Jimmie Jones, Kevin Fagan, Jerome Brown, and Vinny Testeverde. All attend The U sometime in the 1980's.

The here are some of current crop of players from The U:

Ray Lewis
Andre Johnson
Bubba Franks
Frank Gore
Devin Hester
Kenard Lang
Willis McGahee
Rocky McIntosh
Brandon Meriweather
Reggie Wayne
Najeh Davenport
Calais Campbell
Jerome McDougle
Santana Moss
Bryant McKinnie
Kenny Philips
Antrel Rolle
Jeremy Shockey
Jonathan Vilma
Vince Wilfork
Kellen Winslow Jr.

Michael Irvin comes to mind. Jeremy Shockey because he's from Oklahoma. Sean Taylor because he was "Meast".

Bernie Kosar played at the U in the 80s, too.

Warren Sapp is a notable U alum. And as a Colts fan, my personal fave is Edgerrin James.

It is a shame Jerome Brown died at the start of his prime; he may have turned out to be an NFL HOF player...
