Vince Wilfork lost just three games during the entirety of his stellar three-year career at the University of Miami.

Now with the Texans after spending his first 11 seasons with the Patriots, Wilfork shared his views on the state of the Canes’ football program during a conference call with the Miami media in advance of Sunday’s Texans-Dolphins game.
“That’s one of those things where no matter where we go we’re gonna always be Hurricanes,” Wilfork said, “but it’s time for us to start winning the big ones. I’m not blaming nobody down there but there’s a certain level of play that is acceptable down there and right now, for me, I haven’t been happy for 11 years now being in the league, and there’s a lot of guys who feel the same way as me. But we’ll never turn our back on our Hurricanes. Hopefully sooner rather than later we can get it going and get it fixed. But we’re running out of time.READ MORE: Doral Police Need Help Finding Missing Man Thomas Graham
“You’ve got a lot of frustrated Hurricanes that’s in the league and that played in the league. We’re frustrated because that’s not the type of football we’re used to seeing and we’re just waiting for it to get back to where it used to be. Hopefully sooner rather than later.”
Like all former players of this once prestigious program, big Vince is yearning for his college squad to thrive again. Dropping a juggernaut like Clemson this weekend would be a nice start.MORE NEWS: COVID-19 Testing Sites In South Florida
