With the Big 12 in big trouble, with Nebraska and Colorado already gone and Texas A&M and Missouri possibly leaving, we take a look back at the great conference at the greatest moments, players, teams, and games.

Miami's Greatest Offensive Player

WR Michael Irvin
Irvin never earned first-team All-America honors, and he was a wide receiver at Quarterback U., but because of his brashness, because of his attitude, and because of the way he has taken on the role as Mr. Miami Hurricane after his collegiate career, he earns the honor of being the school's greatest player. There were more talented Hurricanes, especially on the defensive side, and there were more productive ones, but Miami took a cue from Irvin and became the ultimate program of swagger as he helped take the program to a whole other level of consistency and greatness. When he was done, he led the school with 143 catches for 2,423 yards and 26 touchdowns, and he was always clutch and he was always big in the big games.

Miami's Greatest Defensive Player

DT Warren Sapp
There's no argument whatsoever if you want to claim that Bennie Blades, Ed Reed, Jerome Brown, Ted Hendricks, Ray Lewis, or any one of the dizzying array of defensive stars in Miami history. Sapp stands out a wee bit only because he was so dominant and so important to a tremendous defense that led the country in yards allowed and scoring D in 1994, and because he was such a big-sized personality for the program of big-sized personalities. In 1994 he made 84 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, and 10.5 sacks ... as a defensive tackle. Unblockable, Sapp won the Lombardi and the Nagurski before going on to become one of the greatest defensive tackles in NFL history.
