Pat Devlin and why Miami sucks!
There has been a lot of news recently about Pat Devlin, a highly recruited highschool QB, who recently decided to attend PSU in the fall instead of Miami. This decision has been called a "coup", but why is that? I don't think it was an coup at all but rather a young man making the correct decision.
Why would anyone want to go to Miami? There are tons of hurricanes, which is less fun than it sounds. It is blazingly hot for about 8 months of the year. Lastly, Miami fans are the most apathetic fools i've ever seen. Nobody goes to the games, the stands sit mostly empty as the UM team plays. Who gets inspired by that? Or could it be that after getting housed by LSU Miami decided to "clean house" and fired the two coaches who had landed Pat Devlin?
It isn't surprising that a young man chose Penn State over Miami for the following reasons: You would get to play here!Thousands of PSU students showed up to chant Devlin's name at a PSU basketball game he attended. PSU basketball is terrible, but yet hundreds of kids showed up specifically to help recruit Devlin. More people showed up to convince Devlin to play for PSU than who show up to watch an average Hurricanes' game. I mean honestly, everyone would choose PSU!
