    Back in the day, Penn State University was known as "Linebacker U" with such NFL greats as Jack Ham, Dave Robinson, LaVarr Arrington, Shanne Conlin and Matt Millen.

    I got to thinking today that perhaps other schools might be known for other positions.

    Does the University of Alabama qualify for "Quarterback U" with the likes of Bart Starr, Kenny Stabler, Joe Namath, Mike Shula and Jay Barker?

    I think the lock might be USC claiming "Tailback U" with the who's who of running backs with the likes of Frank Gifford, Mike Garrett, O.J. Simpson, Charles White,Marcus Allen, Sam "Bam" Cunningham, LenDale White & Reggie Bush.

    Can you think of Offensive Tackle U or Safety U or perhaps even Punter U? Any other schools known for particular positions?

    What say....."U"?
