Miami Hurricanes Will Have Most Alumni Playing In NFL Conference Championship Games This Weekend
Twelve former Hurricanes are on the rosters of the team's still in the hunt for a Super Bowl championship:
P Matt Bosher, OL Harland Gunn, DL Micanor Regis (Atlanta); LB Tavares Gooden, RB Frank Gore (San Francisco); DL Vince Wilfork, DL Marcus Forston (New England); LB Ray Lewis, OL Bryant McKinnie, RB Damien Berry, WR Tommy Streeter, S Ed Reed (Baltimore).That's a good mix of players from the 'Canes' legendary 2001 glory days, and more recent grads.
No other school even comes close to having as much as a mark this weekend. Oregon and Florida are tied for second place with seven each.
So, if you're a Hurricanes fan and aren't sure who to root for this weekend, than the obvious answer is to root for the Hawks and Ravens to advance to a Super Bowl battle of the birds with Ray Lewis and his Ravens eventually taking home the trophy.
