Brett was a phuckin beast!

Romberg attended the University of Miami, where he played for the Miami Hurricanes football team from 1999 to 2002. As senior in 2002, he was distinguished as the best center in the nation when he was awarded the Dave Rimington Trophy and was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American at center.[1]

With Romberg at center, the Hurricanes won 35 of 37 games, one BCS National Championship (2001), three Big East Conference championships (2000, 2001, 2002), a Sugar Bowl (2001) and a Rose Bowl (2002).

Romberg never allowed a quarterback sack at center except against the Ohio State University in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl and was part of an offensive line that helped produce three 1,000-yard rushers (James Jackson, Clinton Portis and Willis McGahee), a quarterback (Ken Dorsey) who set every major Hurricanes career passing record and an offense that averaged more than 465 yards per game for the balance of his three years as the starting center.

Professional career[edit]
After a stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Romberg became the starting center for the St. Louis Rams for a brief time in 2006 and 2007, replacing an injured Andy McCollum, but he was replaced in 2009 by Jason Brown. In 2009, Romberg was a reserve offensive lineman for the Atlanta Falcons. He was released by the Falcons on September 4, 2010.

Due to an injury to starting center Todd McClure, the Falcons re-signed Romberg on August 30, 2011. However, he was released during final cuts on September 3 to avoid a guaranteed contract, but was re-signed on September 12 where he remained on the active roster for the remainder of the 2011 season. Romberg finally retired from the National Football League in 2012.

Romberg was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in March 2013 for his football accomplishments.

Romberg was a very smart and witty guy. The media loved interviewing him. He was there go-to man for the best quotes.

Hard headed Cane hating Mike Martin leaves his starting pitcher in after a 3 hour rain delay while the announcers are questioning his wisdom with a 2 run lead against Mississippi State.

Big Facts Native!

Go Canes!!

Canes picked up a three star DT commit, Jason MUNOZ from St. Thomas Aquinas, 6’4”, 275 pounds. Impressed the coaches at camp.

Although MUNOZ is a three star, I like it when coaches make their own evaluations and assessments of recruits. If MUNOZ is as good as the coaches think, his recruiting will blow up soon so it’s good that the Canes offered him early.

JCane

A busted leg cost him 2017, so it's hard to know what his ranking truly is, for those worry a lot about stars anyway.

Thx for the update, Native. Am I small for almost enjoying fsu being knocked out early as much as if UM were still playing? Probably. I can live with that.

Go Canes!!

We picked up another commit yesterday from ST Thomas.yesterday. That team is loaded this year.

BigWindyCane1

A lot of positive buzz is coming out of Canes camp. Current players and recruits are bullish on the Canes this upcoming season. The Canes young players are maturing into veterans. There is great leadership and playmakers on defense, and speed and athleticism everywhere on the roster.

IMO, the 2017 and 2018 recruits will work with the veterans to take this program to an elite level, top 5-10 in college football. Some freshmen will contribute a lot (IMO, Lingard, Pope, Silvera, Hightower, Rousseau, Jordan and Frierson) some sophomores (IMO, Thomas, Bandy, Garvin, Ford, Smith and Donaldson) will look to have breakout seasons.

I agree and love it

Herbieibis

I'm glad they are all over these 3 stars. Before u know it the class will be full of under the radar types all the while the 4's and 5's decomitted.
No use bashing NM g FSU At least they made the play-offs. I

Go Canes!!

This kid will put up a monster season. Everything I read today about him said he was the dominant guy at the big man challenge on campus.

Coaches got to evaluate him live and got to see what he’s capable of now that he’s healthy.

Herbieibis

Go Canes, Al Golden. Ain't no use reaching this early for Dt's. With their track record, I get them reaching. to

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Herbieibis | June 03, 2018 at 08:07 PM

Your only clue about who this guy is or if he is a reach or not is someone on here posting that someone else said he's a 3 Star.

The coaches, on the other hand have watched film on him, researched who he is, spoken to his coaches, invited him to their camp and evaluated him as they watched him compete against other top local guys.

But hey, some dude said some other dude said some other dude said...

86Cane

GO Canes...the problem with your opinion is that ANY player the Canes ever recruit MUST BE GREAT because the current UM coaches said so. That clearly is NOT true, has NEVER been true and may not be true in this case.

Others always question EVERY recruit and may call it a REACH. Their opinions are also subject to close and independent video review.

But every recruit is NOT always great and also not always a BUST. To claim either is fools gold. Be balanced and fair.

Go Canes!!

Yeah, I'm not saying he's going to be great here.

I said now that he's healthy he should have a monster year playing on that loaded defense.

And I said I trust what these coaches think when they do their player backround research and on field evaluations way more than some dude at a computer who runs some recruiting website.

The rest of what you so dramatically typed in all caps is just stuff you've made up in your head.

So anyone who agrees with me please chime in?

DallasTX Cane

U are correct 86.

Still...I like Go’s eternal optimism.

Go Canes!!

Instead of asking wh=y not just cut and paste where I actually said it?

Go Canes!!

I'll just answer for you.

Cause you can't.

thirstybuzzardcane

Recruiting is absolutely ridiculous now days! Just let me know who we got when signing day is over. I'm tired of these millennials wanting all this attention!

86Cane

GO Canes...look we all like your eternal optimism. It counter balances some of the extreme negativism that also exists on the other side of the aisle.

But the fact of the matter is that everyone knows that everything you say must be taken with a grain of salt because you always error on the side of the orange and green. It is your automatic default position. If a UM football coach does something, anything, it MUST be good.

There are those who also think they can't do anything right. They too use that as their default position. We all know who they are too.

It is as transparent as day. Somewhere in the middle where reality exists is where most of the rest of us live. Come visit sometime. It is really pleasant over here!

Go Canes!!

So to sum up this post, no you can’t post anything about me saying th guy be great here and our coaches are perfect.

Because saying a kid will have a monster year on maybe the best high school defense in the country and trusting our coaches evaluations more than some dude on a recruiting website is nothing like what you described.

86Cane

Go, Go, Go...you really think that I have time to hunt around for hours for some comment you may or may not have made? I don't need a direct quote to prove my point. Your history speaks for itself.

What some bloggers would call a "reach" you instantly would call a "great get". Only thing we REALLY know is that time will tell. You may be right, you may be wrong, but your consistent, blind and unlimited support for anything and everything that UM does is undeniable.

Not even trying to be critical, just accurate.

'Nuff said.

As Far as Recruiting I will access everything on the Dates of December 19-21(Early Signing Dates) and February 6, 2019. Everything else is gossip albeit juicy gossip lol. Hopefully we will have the bulk of our class signed in the three days this December much like last year. I love having clarity. Go Canes!
