^Only 3 DLs (of only 10 total defensive players) were
considered “Consensus” All-Americans in 1993; Patrick
should’ve been the 4th Consensus DL chosen that year
compared with 2 other overlooked alternatives, Arizona
State’s Shante Carver (Football Writers, Sporting News,
NEA-2) or Notre Dame’s Bryant Young (Kodak/Coaches,
Gannett News Service, AP-2). Illinois’ Dana Howard (AP,
Kodak/Coaches, Football News) and UTEP’s Barron Wortham
(Football Writers, Sporting News, AP-2, NEA-2) were the best
alternatives for a 4th “Consensus” LB, but neither matched
Patrick’s 1993 All-American credentials. 1993’s Consensus Def.
Front 6 were DL Arizona’s Rob Waldrop, Ohio State’s Dan Wilkinson
& Texas A&M’s Sam Adams and LBs Trev Alberts (Nebraska),
Derrick Brooks (FSU) & Jamir Miller (UCLA).

LB ^In 1989, Matt had injuries to his ACL and MCL that were
described as the worst sports-related injury ever seen at
the U, requiring 8 hours of surgery. Needing a walker to
get around, he developed an infection in his leg; in 2
months, he lost 40 pounds. UM HC Jimmy Johnson had
said Britton was “the best football player in South
Florida” when signed, and while Matt was able to return
to action for the 1990 & ’91 seasons, he was never the
same, and received no interest from the Pros in 1992.

DT ^O’Neal died of complications from cancer in late 1992.
At his Freshman-year College Training Camp in Aug., 1992,
UM had to get pants from the Dolphins because no ‘Cane
uniform would fit him. He missed camp time after being
misdiagnosed with a “kidney abscess,” then missed the ’92
season after his diagnosis was corrected to cancer. He
died before he could ever wear the UM uniform that
Russell Athletics had made especially for him.

QB ^Not to be confused with UWV WR Greg “Pete” Jones who
played for the Mountaineers from 1988-90 when this Greg Jones was
also on the team. Two college basketball players named “Greg Jones”
(a G from 1979-83 and a JUCO transfer in 1997-98) played for West
Virginia. After 112 years of competition without anybody named Greg
Jones ever being on a UWV roster, star G Jones arrived in 1979. His
photos are sometimes wrongly attributed to QB Jones (UWV #7). Also,
UWV wrestling star Greg Jones (2001-05) would go on to later try out
for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Finally, while ‘Cane DB Greg Jones (#27)
lettered at Miami from 1982-84, QB Jones never lettered at the U.
