Seven former University of Miami players top the list of 2009 NFL Pro Bowl selections, most of any school in the nation.

Those heading to Hawaii this February include wide receivers Andre Johnson (Houston Texans) and Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis Colts), running back Clinton Portis (Washington Redskins), linebackers Ray Lewis (Baltimore Ravens) and Jon Beason (Carolina Panthers), safety Ed Reed (Baltimore Ravens) and punter Jeff Feagles (New York Giants).

I don't fully understand. I mean the guys you mentioned aren't former Canes. Willie Williams and Kirby Freeman are former Canes. Those guys you listed are CANES and always will be.

The Canes will always have an impact in the NFL. Hopefully Randy will get things turned around not only successfully at the U, but with players that are trying to make it to the NFL. This draft is not looking very "U" friendly.
