Miami defensive tackle Pat Bethel believes being a legacy player at Miami means much more. His dad, Randy, won two national championships with the Canes and that tradition is something well understood. "When your father is somebody you look up to, it's easy to see how a kid would be like, 'I want to follow in his footsteps, but that legacy here is a little bit different, and I can tell. I'm not just saying that because I'm here. You may go to wherever and play because your dad played but when you come here and play at the place where your dad played, it's a little different. It's something you can feel."
