Well I remember seeing that interview during canespace of araviois. He said "ray ray just wants to be ray ray.. I dont wanna be Sean Taylor" which is fine. He just joins the list of top rated players that didnt pan out. He was my favorite cane. Im wishing him the best but Sean Michael Taylor was one of a kind.. 86, can you ask him how the defense is looking.. ? I believe this group will have some growing pains but next year.. Acc's best

Sean Michael Taylor was one of a kind

Good luck Ray Ray sigh :\

Only people that are sad are OCoordinators in the ACC b/c they might have to actually consider not using playaction or any kind of play where the halfback gets the ball on a sweep & then throws it to someone downfield as much anymore

I agree with this post by Six yesterday, I DEFINITELY won't miss Ray Ray getting toasted on PAs. I definitely know that they love Him in the state of Virginia. Especially VT, where the Coale kid beat Him on the SAME! route two years in a row, HOW THE HELL DOES THAT HAPPEN!!!

And don't even get me started on the half-back pass in the UVA game. Even Pop Warner kids know not to come up and play the run, UNTIL! the ball CROSSES! the line of scrimmage.

Yeah, I definitely won't miss that part of His game. And let's face it, RR wasn't disciplined enough to produce at FS, wasn't athletic enough to play CB, and He wasn't stout enough to be a hybrid SS/OLB. At the end of the day, RR was a TWEENER...IF THAT!!!

I can't wait for the book to come out: ) ! - You've got to love the title!

In five years I can see that there will book on the NY Times best seller list with this title!

In all seriousness, it is a shame. And even more unfortunately, his story is only one of many that share the same story.

Hell, not even being a wise a$$, I honestly cannot remember the second member of the "Sanford Trio" who committed to the Canes.

To me, this only solidifies the fact that 18-22 yr olds need definitive direction from a respectable leader(s). To a large degree, that was missing throughout the coaching staff BG (Before Golden).

Just as importantly, competition cannot be overvalued when it comes to a high caliber HS athlete realizing his full potential. It may be antithetical to human behavior, but if you are going to remain focused and committed day in and day out, there is nothing that can duplicate the effects of competition. PED-type temptations aside, there is really not a down side to it. Well, unless you are the one who gets left in the dust, but unless Sean Taylor was in front of you, if you keep pushin', you will only become significantly better and reap the rewards sooner than later. Your time WILL come.

But this is a Fast Food, need it now world and you can connect the dots.

Big Ten officials are still in the early stages of debating how to handle fallout from the scandal. Among other ideas, the league’s presidents and chancellors could consider removing Penn State from the conference, one Big Ten leader told The Chronicle.

The Big Ten Conference Handbook, which governs the league’s operations, does not contain language addressing a situation as egregious as what happened at Penn State.

But the conference’s bylaws prescribe potentially severe penalties for member institutions that break lesser rules. Any Big Ten university that employs or retains workers who intentionally falsify or deliberately fail to provide complete and accurate information during an investigation may be required to “show cause why its membership in the conference should not be suspended or terminated,” the Big Ten’s 2011-12 handbook says.

At least four top Penn State officials—including Graham B. Spanier, the former president, and Timothy M. Curley, the athletic director on administrative leave—failed to paint an accurate picture of how much they knew about Jerry Sandusky, the former coach convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse, according to an independent report released last week. Both Spanier and Curley were part of a culture that tried to “actively conceal” abuse by the former coach, the report said.

The Big Ten’s 12-member Council of Presidents and Chancellors must approve any decision to suspend, expel, or place on probation any member of the conference. According to the conference handbook, expulsion requires a vote of not less than 60 percent of the full council (a Big Ten spokesman said that figure is actually 70 percent, or eight members, which will be reflected in the 2012-13 handbook).

Dubose has been an under achiever at Flo.
Dye, can't find a position & stay there.
Armstrong, falls by the wayside, just like Willie Williams, Latwan Anderson,Ryan Moore & Marcus Forston. The list of flops just goes on & on But who knows, he'll probably be an all pro because that's what we do at the "U", produce pro players.

Miami 6: Over

If you expect any improvement at all in year 2 under Al Golden, then there's your 7 wins right off the bat. Perhaps my biggest reason for being optimistic about Miami this season is that all 6 of their losses last season were by 1 score. Nobody was blowing them out, and if the players grow in the system their 2-6 record in 1 score games should move toward .500. I also don't imagine they'll lose to Boston College this year, and wouldn't be shocked at all to see them upset Florida State or Virginia Tech, both home games.

FOUR STAR FOLLIES:

Ahhhh, the great Duron Carter escapade. The son of Cris Carter transferred to Alabama from Ohio State in April of 2011, but had trouble getting any closer to game action than the practice field. A few weeks into the season, Nick Saban noted Carter might not make it out for the year at any point, and then spring ball also came and went without him.

And now this:

"That guy refuses to buy in to what we teach and what we value to be succesful. He will not play for this football team. Period," Nick Saban reportedly said at a gathering.

Carter was rated a four-star recruit out of Fort Lauderdale by Rivals, making him the 11th-best receiver in the country. The 6'3 possession man mustered 176 career yards for the Buckeyes in 2009, and that's been his entire college career to date.

UPDATE AS OF TODAY:

Duron Carter, son of NFL great Cris Carter, has applied to FAU with hopes of joining the football team, according to a high-level school source.

Carter is also hoping to receive a transfer waiver — on the grounds that he is moving closer to his South Florida-based family — which will allow him to play the 2012 season.

If he is not granted the waiver, but enrolls at FAU, Carter will have one year of eligibility remaining.

His application to FAU is still pending.

When reached by phone, Cris Carter, who lives in Boca Raton, said only: "I'm sure it will all be resolved soon."

If Carter does enroll at FAU, it would be his fourth school in as many years.

A 2009 graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas, Carter started his college football career at Ohio State, before academic reasons forced him to transfer to Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College. He then transferred to Alabama in 2011, but his academic woes did not abandon him.

Kevin Beard attended Plantation High School in Plantation, Florida[1] and was a student and a standout in football and basketball. In football, as a junior, he made 50 receptions for 850 yards (17.00 yards per reception avg.) and 15 touchdowns. As a senior, he was a first team All-Broward County selection, a second team All-State selection, and was named by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel as a Broward County co-Offensive Player of the Year. In basketball, as a senior, he was a second team All-State selection.

Beard graduated from Plantation High School in 1999 and attended the University of Miami where he played wide receiver.

He now is the Wide Receivers coach at the University School in Davie, Florida.

Still too early in Dye's junior year to write him off just yet but he is in a spot where it's excel at TE or bust for him now. I still have more faith in him breaking out at this point in the game than I did with Richard Gordon at the same point, but Gordon somehow ended up drafted still! Anyone who doesn't think the secondary at UM is worse off today than it was on Tuesday is just hating.

Oh My God

There has been a mass shooting at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in the US state of Colorado, with some media claiming up to 10 people have been killed.

There were reports of at least 20 people being wounded and an explosive device being set off at the showing of the latest Batman movie on Friday night, according to NBC News.

You just never know WHEN,WHERE, and WHY!
This is absolutely horrific:

Seeger said she was in the second row, about four feet from the gunman, when he pointed a gun at her face. At first, "I was just a deer in headlights. I didn't know what to do," she said. Then she ducked to the ground as the gunman shot people seated behind her.

She said she began crawling toward an exit when she saw a girl about 14 years old "lying lifeless on the stairs." She saw a man with a bullet wound in his back and tried to check his pulse, but "I had to go. I was going to get shot."

The What

There is clearly something going on where we keep having these
Shootings occur. Was this going on 30, 40, 50 years ago? If not then the question is what has changed that has made this such a regular occurrence in our society?

Penn State to remove statue?

Earlier this week, a small plane reportedly flew over campus with a banner reading: “Take the statue down or we will.”

The removal of the statue would be the latest public condemnation of Paterno. “Paternoville” — the name of the area where students waited outside of Beaver Stadium — has been changed to “Nittanyville” and Brown University, Paterno’s alma mater, removed his name from an award given to its top male athlete.

I'll take a newbie Deon Bush at Safety over Ray Ray

Like CaneRock said, when did playaction not fake out Ray Ray

How many times did you hear/see/read about Ray Ray freelancing too much back there - even when Shannon was still coach

If that kid cared as much about actually learning the position as he did searching for what kind of chicken was on the menu at a steakhouse/tweeting stupid crap, then maybe he would've lived up to his star rating/potential

Generally your leading tackler on your team is going to be a LB .. followed by a Safety .. so his tackle numbers aren't anything to blow your mind

Just one game. He has his moments, average and not so average

New Manny:

With freshmen Howard, Bush in the mix, cornerback figures to be most intriguing position battle at camp

Of all the position battles heading into the start of fall camp Aug. 3, few seem tougher to forecast than what might happen for the Hurricanes at cornerback.

Outside of senior Brandon McGee, who made 12 starts last season, and Thomas Finnie, who played sparingly as a freshman, nobody else playing cornerback at UM has taken a snap at the FBS level.

Although that's somewhat of a scary prospect for defensive backs coach Paul Williams (at least he had seniors Mike Williams and JoJo Nicolas to throw out on the field last year along with McGee), he's also excited about the influx of incoming talent at the position -- headlined by blue chip freshmen Tracy Howard (5-11, 170) of Miramar High and Deon Bush (6-1, 179) of Miami Columbus.

In the end, Williams said, "we'll need at least six" cornerbacks to be ready to play...

Sure it's a violation but just like the first story it's being blown out of proportion. And how is golden supposed to know the guy was affiliated to that slime ball. The story is not that big of a deal. But it does have to negative ramifications.

1. It makes golden look dishonest. Which hurts his image.
2. It gives more ammo to negative recruiting and makes recruiting that much harder.

I'm not even mad at idiot rRobinson over this, just amazed that he bought it hook, line and sinker. We all know if Peewee had a receipt re: paying for meals he would have used it in his story, so scratch that off.

Having previously de-committed from the Hurricanes, Chickillo reversed course and ultimately became Al Golden's highest-ranked recruit of the 2011 class. On Jan. 23, Chickillo told Y! Sports' Rivals.com of his visit, "On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 12. I'm 200 percent committed to Miami. The recruiting process is over for me."


Chick never decommited.

I mean yeah this is some minor secondary violations that occur at every school in the country. Honestly it makes yahoo look bad trying to save face and put Miami down. I do not see these violations being all that major to be honest, they all occured before the yahoo story broke as the guy left right after the story.
