Because of its party-centric, questionable academics, sometimes NCAA-violating football program (which was my only knowledge of Miami for years), I thought Miami was a second (or third)-rate state school - and all students were like Michael Irvin or others on the teams of yesteryear, the posse of guys who hung out with him, or the women he slept with.
But, I've since learned that it's a private school, and a pretty good school as well.
I mean, plenty of schools have those commercials during games that remind you of other aspects of the school, other than football. Miami probably does now, but back in their 80s heyday, I don't ever remember seeing anything like that. I figured the school was the South Beach club/bar scene transported to a campus setting plus football - and that's all.
