Who are those 5 jabronis in Bumblebee gear, next to the Ramblin Wreck car?

That thing reminds me of the Boomer Schooner (except without the Okie inbreds driving it and little horses), and I don't like it

Ya, ya, I had to load the bases myself - but I'm still sixth

SOUP

Six asks: "Who are those 5 jabronis in Bumblebee gear, next to the Ramblin Wreck car?"

They are the actual dudes who drive the car on the field at GT home games. I met them at the ACC championship game in December.

They also write a GT blog and write for Raycom. Nice guys, third generation GT fans.

SOUP

Nice work loading the bases Six! the Marlins did the same to the Mets in the third, batted around and scored SIX runs. Imagine that?

Fish 6, Mets 0

Marlins going for the FOUR gamne sweep of the Mets at Sun Life today.

Jer

UM 3 - GT 0
Top of the 5th

Six

The Mets are a complete mess - they've lost 6 of their last 7, about to lose 7 of their last 8

Remember when they were a top of the NL East for a little bit last month?

Fish have won 5 of their last 6, about to win 6 of their last 7

I see that Gaby Sanchez is 2 for 3 today

SOUP

Sanchez (from UM) has been SMOKIN" hot lately. The FISH have him batting second in the lineup now, he was eighth at the beginning of the season.

Cantu strikes out looking. Fish 7, Mets 3.

It is done and believe me I am happy its done. BUT the university IF they want to stay relevant will have do better. I just always go back the All Canes article where he mentioned how we were SO ready to give Schiano 2+ million and Randy is HERE and FROM HERE and gets marginalized. It still SUX ARSE NO IFS ANDS BUTS ABOUT IT!

BG, that's true but Schiano was a proven commodity at that point. That's why he was offered that. He resurrected RUTGERS for crying out loud. Anyone who does that deserves all the credit they get.

Of course, he's running into a talent wall of sorts these last few years but still. They're a solid team and will continue to be so as long as he's there.

The U has gotten lucky with Shannon because as Solar said, he has an old-school mentality about CFB. Players, school then salary. He wants to retire at the U and doesn't care about anything but winning championships, and most importantly he'll soon prove he knows how to do it as well as anyone else.

So the U's really fortunate that events conspired the way they did, Butch leaving, Coker stinkin' but getting lucky with Shannon, Schiano getting cold feet cause he didn't think he could recruit with high academic standards, and finally Shannon being as skilled and driven as he is but not being greedy.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

The University of Miami track and field teams - with a No. 14 national ranking on the women's side - saw three relay teams dominate the competition in the final day of the Georgia Tech Invitational, Saturday at Griffin Track.

Cory Nelms, DeMarcus Van Dyke, Travis Benjamin and Brandon McGee broke the school record in the 4x100m relay. The foursome finished second in the race with a time of 39.60 seconds.

The women's 4x100 relay team, consisting of Charlene Fuller, Kristy White, Tarika Williams and Ashley Dukes, tied the fifth-best mark in UM history as they won the event in 43.96 seconds.

Those four guys running track in the offseason can only help.

Benjamin, especially, is going to be a beast next year...and don't forget Lamar Miller is running track too.

Pick your poison on the receiver position: TB, LB, LH, KS, TC, DJ

...oh and can WE win one friggin' game in the ninth inning this year. Soup, are you feeling it today?

Not saying it can't be done, just not willing to say:

"I GOT THIS"

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Philly, congrats!! That's some funny ish though, throwing up the U at your college graduation that's not from the U. haha

SOUP, I wonder if GT's track coach had any words of advice for the GT football coach?? haha

Cav.

Absolutely NOT. Schiano was a 1st time HC too with 1 good year against sub-standard competition. He's doing a good job for Rutgers but WHAT makes him worthy? What has he won on the BIG stage as a coordinator?

I rest my case...

SOUP

GT 6, UM 3 FINAL

Good article on recruiting in dade co as it relates to UM. Manny is also interviewed for this article.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/recruiting/football/news/story?id=5188021

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

BG, Schiano brought a complete door-mat to an ELEVEN AND TWO record in 2006. They were 9-0 going into the 10th game of the season. THIS IS RUTGERS WER'RE TALKING ABOUT. THAT'S what made him "worthy". At that point Schiano was being courted by Meeechegan as well.

So the point is there was no question about his ability to put together a winner, which was why he was offered the job first in the 1st place.

Second, to woo someone who's winning away from the school they rebuilt requires some money.

Compared to Schiano at that point, Shannon was a HUGE ???????????????


11-2

vs

UNKNOWN

Which would you offer the job to first??

Case closed.

anybody hhhhhooommmeeee?

This is SPOOKY!!!!

Not to worry Cat5, it is what it is:

DEAD SEASON

If not for the Shannon contract news there would be very little news at all that people actually cared about.

UM fans are after all:

80% Football ONLY
20% baseball fans
10% basketball fans

Philly - congrats on your graduation

solarcane

bg,
You gotta put the whole thing into perspective Brudda.

Randy wasn't the U's first pick as the must have guy.
The got a bargain, and they capitalized on it.
He has slowly worked his way into being THAT GUY.

What he did as a DC was marvelous yes.
The fact that he had the best defensive players in the nation 3 deep helped him a lot. His defense's success had as much to do with his recruiting ability as his defensive prowess.. those athletes could make anyone's defense click.

So far he is doing the same thing as a HC.
By his recruiting his players are getting better and better.
Which makes his job easier.
He is improving as a HC with each thing he learns about his job.

When he gets his teams prepared for game day ever week consistently 12 times a season like Beamer or Butch he will win more and have more ammunition to bargain with for money.

He will get his compensation when he wins something. Remember he WANTED his contract to be full of incentives, so he is confident his teams are winners.

Instead of harping on Randy being paid to little switch up and complain the others are being way overpaid, you will get a lot more support.

What if Randy IS the best coach in the ACC and is getting paid exactly what he is worth?


I'd love to get paid a million and a half dollars to be the third best contractor out of six year after year up here believe me.

and much respect for the recruiting news you been bringing even in the dead period.
Like I told you, you save me a bundle and a lot of googling.

BG and all you other talent evaluators can you please look up this kid's highlight video and tell me if he's U material...his name is Deontay mcmannus

bg1906

The only team worth a damn on that 11-2 season is WVU and Rutgers lost.

Posted by: Fighting Ibis | May 16, 2010 at 08:18 PM

My point indeed!

bg1906

Solar.

I just don't believe in the Duke coach and the UVA coach who have NO history, NO tradition, and coaches who have won SQUAT as even coordinators making more than the University of Miami coach. That is a PROBLEM!

Checked this kid out. He's a big kid. 2012 so that meant that footage was him as a freshman. Impressive. I think he could very well grow in a U caliber player. He's surely a D-I prospect. I liked the look of him better at Safety than WR though.

coldcane

He is my best friend's nephew...I was with him this weekend...he likes the U but his dad likes FSU...U know I was in his ear

coldcane

He's a really good kid...very humble...has personality and charisma...I can tell that he's coachable because I had quite a few long talks with hom throughout the weekend and he was very attentive

Finding lots of news, just not UM related... Just a little spice to stimulate the coffee, this morning.

What's a guy to do, after he finds his wife has a history, as Hugh Hefner's old squeeze and a porn star... Oh hon, There's just one thing i forgot to tell you about my past!... huh????

Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape Ready to Air!

Written by Abe Luciano

Thursday, 13 May 2010

Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape Ready to Air! This has got to be one of the funniest stories of the New Year! According to various reports, the alleged Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape not only exists, but it’s ready to reach the airwaves courtesy of Vivid Entertainment. But the Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape is not bringing much joy to her home, as husband, NFL wide receiver Hank Baskett, is apparently not very happy about his bride receiving it from multiple partners on camera.

But here’s the kicker: various reports indicate that Kendra Wilkinson was shopping the Sex Tape around during the time her and Baskett were engaged to be married in 2008. The Eagles wide out is reportedly planning to split with the former Playboy Playmate.

"Hank is totally upset and embarrassed," a newspaper said about the problems the Kendra Wilkinson Sex Tape is causing. "The main reason he’s embarrassed is his team's [possible] reaction. He needs to concentrate on his career right now, and this just creates more distractions for him."

Kevin Blatt, a celebrity sex-tape broker, claims that Kendra Wilkinson’s manager approached him with the Sex Tape a couple of years ago. "Kendra’s sex tape was shopped to me two years ago,” he said. “It was done by a person who said he was Kendra’s manager.”

week old news...

What I Learned From Spring Football in the ACC. by furrer4heisman

Virginia Tech Hokies
- The defense is going to be OK (again). Tech has a talented, athletic and versatile secondary that will compensate for the linebackers' deficiencies in pass coverage. I think the defense will struggle against the run early in the year because of youth, but will eventually be the solid front seven we expect from a Bud Foster defense.
- The O-line has five capable cogs, but if they don't learn to move together or one of those cogs tears a pectoral muscle in a freak weight-room injury, the whole offensive machine could go kaput. Lack of depth on the line could again hurt Tech.

Florida State Seminoles
- Christian Ponder is still the best quarterback in the league. Ponder lit up a defense that isn't lost anymore under its new coaching staff, including defensive coordinator Mark Stoops. The new staff has FSU fans back to their optimistic selves and it will likely be selected as the preseason favorite to win the Atlantic.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
- There will be no dropoff at the B-back position from Jonathan Dwyer to Anthony Allen. While Dwyer got most of the headlines last year, Allen was the one who was consistently ripping off long run after long run from his A-back spot. Can he do the same now that he's primarily running between the tackles instead of outside? I think he can. The guy is a fantastic all-purpose back.
- The Yellow Jacket defense lost a lot of talent from last year and will need some time to adjust to Al Groh's 3-4 defense. GT could be involved in a lot of high-scoring games this year.

Miami Hurricanes
- Miami's loaded at the skill positions (again), but will need consistency from Jacory Harris and will need to be better on the road to get over the hump in Randy Shannon's fourth season.
- The Canes' secondary got torched in their spring game, but they have a very front seven that will be tough to run against.


North Carolina Tar Heels
- The Heels will be one of the most-discussed teams going into the season. A lot of this will be because ESPN wants to hype its season-opener in Atlanta between UNC and LSU. The Heels have an outstanding defense loaded with NFL talent, but will it be able to live up to the headlines and will its offense be able to provide enough firepower to get them to Charlotte? I don't think it will.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

The rest don't count

Old Skool

Hmmm multiple partners. Is that the porn version of triple option or the wildcat?

solarcane

BG,
Randy has NO problem with it, you are making it your personal problem.

Randy's whole income is based on incentives not base salary.

Explain to me the Duke and UVa incentive bonus plans.

We can't argue that point because we have no facts that the Duke coach will get more than Randy by season's end.

Maybe Duke's coach gets what you see in black and white, they don't have the expectations to win the ACC or NC in football.
Perhaps Randy gets 60%, 75%, or 100% more than his base salary by seasons end.

Do you know for a fact UVa's guy has the same bonus opportunity Randy has?
Relax, Randy isn't going to starve.lol

If he didn't think it was fair he wouldn't have signed on the line.
Maybe the Duke and UVA coaches have much better agents, we don't know that either.

You and I both do better work at our job than people that get paid more than we do.

Lets see how the season unfolds. Randy has everything in place to win big, he will be rewarded for his performance, not potential.
NO PROBLEM

SOUP

triple option or the wildcat?

Wildcat, definitely wildcat.
