Pata to receive degree

The University of Miami announced this morning 63 student-athletes will receive degrees later this week including the late great Bryan Pata who was murdered 6 monts ago. Pata's family will be there to accept the award Friday night and president Donna Shalala is expected to bestow it upon them.

Sad but true, Pata's family will have received Bryan's degree before police have found Bryan's killer. That's just flat out wrong. Something needs to change. Somebody knows something.

Anyway, here's a list of the 63 graduates released by UM's Sports Information Department with their respective degrees:
