What is it about sarcasm that you find hard to understand ?
That is great to see the former Tigers doing so well.
Regarding the inevitable debate over players leaving early, what I noted almost right away when I saw this list is that all three were pretty much no-brainers. Mingo and Reid were rated as first round talents and were both selected in the first round. Mathieu really didn't have much of an option as he had been dismissed from the team. My concern over players leaving does not and never has involved first round picks (or players no longer associated with the program) but has instead involved players who leave early to be low round picks or UDFA's. While the current situation is more acute, this goes back, at least for me, to the curious case of Trev Faulk.
