Let's go Canes beat Duke just like u beat them last year. Damn I wish I could be at the BUC tomorrow night

SOUP

Winter Haven...West Palm Beach....Homestead.

What did I miss?

No to any FSU offensive assistants. That offense is why they're still not 'back' yet right now, Dumbo's grab bag of spread principles mixed in with the Gulf Coast offense leftovers from the 90's is hardly inspiring.

IMO, grab a David Shaw affiliated assistant and hope for the best.

SOUP, you be taking in some pimping tomorrow I'm guessing?

It's great to see the Canes ball team in such a big game. They deserve it.

Coach L is doing a great job with Frank Haith's recruits. Amazing what insisting on aggressive defense will do for a basketball team.

Coach L is the goods.

January 22nd 2013 From AP and The Miami Herald with John Infante former compliance officer at NCAA Division I schools

From AP

Associated Press Got It Correct Miami Reported Shapiro way before the Yahoo article.


The University of Miami turned in Shapiro to the NCAA two months before Yahoo published it's initial article.

"Shapiro, the former booster, is serving a 20-year sentence in federal prison for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme. All of the individuals who were named by Shapiro in his detailed claims that were published by Yahoo Sports are no longer at the university. The NCAA inquiry started several months before that August 2011 article."

John Infant is a former compliance officer at NCAA Division I schools here is his take on the Miami investigation from the Miami Herald:

Miami is reaching a certain level of cooperation that has significance in the NCAA investigation where they might get a break on a penalty as a result."

From Manny Navarro at the Herald: Former coach Randy Shannon has not linked to any of this. In fact, we've heard stories and its been reported he was telling his players and coaches to stay away from Nevin Shapiro. Does that help Miami's football program in this case considering it appears Haith was involved with Shapiro?

"It certainly does help. We've seen Shannon not being named in any of the violations and him not facing any unethical conduct or failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance charges. Because he is the head coach, he is supposed to be the one as the direct link to the administration and what they do in terms of monitoring and applying compliance.

Part 1

Montreal-Cane

Part 2

Would exceptional cooperation be telling former athletes that if they didn't cooperate they wouldn't be allowed back on the sidelines? We've heard that and our Barry Jackson reported that last week.


"If they were able to get people who normally wouldn't have replied to the NCAA or allowed themselves to be interviewed by the NCAA and Miami helped make that happen -- especially athletes UM has no jurisdiction over -- that's going above and beyond what the NCAA asks on the case. That may lead to a lessening of penalties

That's when you see something like exceptional cooperation. It could be that [the NCAA is] giving [Miami] a little bit of praise.

Miami's cooperation is considered better and the coaches don't perform well in the hearing that could lead to the COI sort of finding that in spite of institutional failings by Miami this was more the coaches fault and bring the penalties down on the coaches more than on the institution -- especially considering the three post-season bans the [football program] has already imposed."

The COI will impose other penalties they see fit and not go into any further post-season bans. If they did that's something Miami would probably appeal."

For those who underestimate the contribution of sophomore Clive Wafford, a comparison of his production to the top Canes TEs over the last 10 years is interesting, albeit Wafford accomplished his during the most productive passing year:

2012
Clive Walford 25 451 18.0 65 (TD) 4

2009
Dedrick Epps 19 247 13.0 33 (TD) 3
Jimmy Graham 17 213 12.5 22 5

2008
Dedrick Epps 22 304 13.8 69 (TD) 2

2006
Greg Olsen 40 489 12.2 41 (TD) 1

2005
Greg Olsen 31 451 14.5 63 4

2004
Kevin Everett 23 310 13.5 57 0
Greg Olsen 16 275 17.2 51 1

BigWindyCane1

I meant last 8 years. The 2003, Winslow had 60 catches for about 600 yards, but they had no good WRs and the Canes wer still in the Big East.

The rebound was as large as the UNIVERSE!

Terrance Sullivan

Also the BUC is within 300 tickets sold of another hard sellout against FSU on Sunday. Let's go Canes.

OGV,

Where's the real you at, you've been making a lot of sense lately bring back the real OGV whoever you are.

Also, yo pimp better come thru tomorrow night

kenyon19ypr

Big Windy- What you compare his stats to is absolutely true, but from a game-by-game standpoint, he hasn't been too impressive. If he showed consistent production, we would ALL like that. We would all like that a lot haha.

2012- Clive Walford 25 451 18.0 65 (TD) 4

Broken down into:
KSU, USF, Duke- 10 295 29.5 65 (TD) 3

Other 9 games- 15 156 10.4 30 (TD) 1

Short handed penalty shot goal, LMAO!

WWiN, I usually always make sense and I'm a free man, TYVM. Honestly, The, not mine, the, Pimp is about to match-up with the greatest of all time so he'll be lucky to escape with his face unadjusted when that's over and I'm just hoping he can salvage some street cred against Hamilton over the weekend personally.

Ah, the Failures gooning it up like a bunch of jabronies when they get blown out, I recognize this sport now! NHL hockey! Welcome back!

TLuv

Windy-

Yea I feel like we'll see some more 2 TE packages with Clive and Beau. With AG being a TE I feel like that position is gonna be better as the years go on.

LB

Congratulations to my favorite player, #11, for getting the Panthers job. You best believe he'll be back at UM for some point.

Walford's stats mask the fact that he wasn't that big of a threat. Outside of the three games previously mentioned, it wasn't there.

Graham had one year of college football and he scored 5 TD's. Olsen had 71 catches in two years, thus making the two FEARED entities.

Dobard has been touted as "the beast" of 2013 class for MONTHS, and I'm inclined to believe it. Add in the top JUCO TE (Sandland) offered by practically every major NCAA school...

...things are going to get just nasty. Oh, and these two are entering early.

Prediction: one of these two are going to start Game 1, and by Game 5... they will be 1 & 2 on the depth chart.

Predictions:

Jermaine Grace: UM
Jaynard Bostwick: UM
Alex Collins: UM
Keef Bryant: FIU
Matt Thomas: UM
Denver Kirkland: Prep, then Marshall
Stacy Coley: FSU
Rashard Robinson: LSU

Jack

Shannon = integrity and good character ! I truly was rooting for him his first 3.5 years!! It seems to me Randy Shannon did promote the proper atmosphere and it was a few rouge coaches breaking the "ridiculous rules"

Player's need to form a union and negotiate pay and these ridiculous rules with the NCAA. As a cunsumer of college football I am tired of all these NCAA investigations!

LB

"it was a few rouge coaches breaking the "ridiculous rules"

Lord. I just had a vision in my head of Hurtt and those other stooges singing Moulin Rouge.

Ohio_Cane

GREAT NEWS: Matthew Thomas taking his OFFICIAL VISIT to UM today!! CANE!

Ohio_Cane

StateoftheU - Indiana TE target Nate Wozniak, set to visit the weekend, has Purdue, Minnesota and Miami (FL) as finalists.

CoCane

LB

Kirkland has the grades. No need for prep school.

I don't think Standish even plays right away. Walford has developed steadily & after another off season of training, he'll be too developed for Standish to take his spot this year. I could see Sandland starting & Walford completing the 1, 2 punch.

Dobard will be groomed to be Olsen or Dewey's toy in the flats & seams. Imo

Ohio_Cane

Co, 2 TE sets = Clive and Standish/Beau. Mix and match. Especially being an EE, he'll play. A good bit, too.

For those who haven't seen, Jeremy Kerr decommitted. No surprise. UMike and I said this a week or two ago, as well as numerous others on other sites.

Being pushed out to make room for someone else, IMO. Most likely on defensive side of the ball.

UMike

Ohio...I also think Golden saw the writing on the wall and there was no way he was going to have him flip on NSD..imo or course.

So..did Grace push back his decision again? Went from Tues to Thurs, but now I think it is changed again.

A lot of people laughed at me for my Rashard Robinson to UM prediction. I still could be wrong, but he sure is hanging around Miami and it's players/recruits A LOT for a guy who's "100% L$U".

Jeremy Kerr to FSU is a good thing.
Further proves my point, that Jimbo can't find His own talent..."GET YA' OWN DAWG, YA HEARD" <----------In my Big Pun voice.

herbieibis

First off, let me thank J. Kerr for having the Gall to dump us, well Gall and Kerr were going to be roommates! Enough with these NR's, lets be getting someone with a number beside their name. I know they put NR's beside JUCCO's names, no point in pointing that out!
I know they won't but Dobard needs to redshirt. With Sandlin, Clive, Cleveland & Dye, there ain't no use to rush him onto the field or do what Randy was famous for, blowing a year of eligibility on special teams.
Unless we throw some loot out, it's going to be tough to get a top flight O-C. I think we probably all would want an NFL guy and if that's the case, it we will probably be just a cup of coffee and then back to the league for someone like that. We need someone with Jedd's imagination and loves the college game more than the pros. Assit. coaches are always going to come and go, trying to build that resume up and eventually a head coaching gig, it's just the nature of the beast, unless it's Va. Tech, where they never leave.
As for FSU, losing Kerr to those stiffs, I can deal with, it's the other 4 we need to real in. Kirkland, Thomas, Coley & Bryant. We need defensive help, so if we lose any to those guys, let it be Coley.
Now for Robinson, I'm sure it's tough for the young man but he does live close so it shouldn't be a surprise that he hangs out with his homies. LSU has some major rebuilding to do on defense and I'm sure, he sees immediate P.T. of course the same could be said for us too. If AL can swing him 360, ain't nothing but a beatiful Thang!

Dobard has stated he doesn't mind redshirting.

So, there's a basketball game tonight? :)

Ohio_Cane

Jermain Grace update, per Manny - Miramar linebacker Jermaine Grace, who was originally set to make his college announcement on Tuesday, will now make it sometime next week according to his coach Damon Cogdell. Louisville, whom Grace visited last weekend, is taking advantage of the extra time with an in-home visit this week. Cogdell said the delay is due to the fact he's working with producers to get Grace's announcement made on television.

Ohio_Cane

Uh oh..................... POSSIBLE GREAT NEWS FOR MIAMI COMING!

STAY TUNED!

Ohio_Cane

The NCAA will now push back the NOA to investigate it's OWN improper conduct during it's investigation of UM.

Tim Reynolds - Filing stories now. This could be seismic for Miami.

Ohio_Cane

Manny - NCAA admits its enforcement staff gained info for #UM investigation that wouldn't have been accessible otherwise because of Shapiro

SMD - Teleconference IS about "improper conduct'' during Miami investigation! Wow. Improper conduct by THE NCAA!

Ohio_Cane

Matt Hayes - Through Shapiro bankruptcy proceedings, #NCAA gained info that would not be accessible otherwise. (In our judicial system, a big no-no)

Not going through UM's defense like a warm knife through butter apparently is a fireable offense under D'No.

Anybody shed any tears for a year without Pedturno recently? Me neither.

Ohio_Cane

Tim Reynolds - This is bad for Miami in that it's more time. This is good for Miami in that this NOA easily could likely look like Swiss cheese soon.

Damn, the NCAA uis investigating its own investigators? Who would ahve thought this would ever come? Then again, some of us thought that second bowl ban was ridiculous and that appeasing them was the equivalent of making a deal with the devil.

Yeah, better drop this investigation. Now.

UMike

So all the info they got from Sean Allen may be no good....great news for Miami

LB

Al Golden is going to go nuclear on these recruits. He took the high road, maintained honesty, and now the NCAA looks like a bunch of fools. UM has been victimized by idiots, who had the attorney of the felon accuser on the payroll.

How about this for starters:
1. Drop the investigation.
2. Apologize publicly and specifically for each count of misconduct.
3. Recognize UM for its pillar of excellence, as it dropped two bowl games and a CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP in light of such.
4. Fatten Al Golden's contract.
5. Lawyer up.
6. Set a standard for future transparency.

You can bet your rear end that Al Golden's comments of "they crushed us" in recruiting won't go unchecked.

"Get your licks in now."

With Cristobal on board and a clean slate... game over. The ACC has been put on notice.

laquinton

gets to the bottom of things w/ Emmert: NCAA paid attorney to be part of Shapiro case and ask questions under oath. Wow." smh

LB

I say for revenge we wipe out the ACC. Mow the FSU's, the Va. Tech's, and all the rest of the stooges down. Old school, Paulie Walnuts style.

Like 56-0 each game.

Who's with me?

Make it 63-0. Screw 56.

Billy Corben - NCAA basically threatened UM's Sean Allen with perjury if he didn't tell the truth since investigator Ameen Najjar abused his deposition.

UM's lawyers have to be salivating at this. Each and every allegation is going to be dissected and challenged during the appeal phase, and the NCAA will be on shaky ground at best. God help them if the NCAA moves forward on any allegations that the UM lawyers prove to have been obtained illegally (that's the kind of thing that gets people disbarred even if it's not in a court of law). Shalala may have have her faults, but when it comes to lawyering up, this woman was a cabinet member under Clinton, and her university has a highly rated law school. Think she knows a good lawyer or two?

Valid, although I meant if they do so unknowingly. I mean, this has to involve hundreds, if not thousands, of pages of documentation, and parsing out individual components of such a large amount of information has to be difficult considering some of the investigators who compiled the info and built the case are now gone from the NCAA because off their missteps. They essentially have to restructure their whole case. Although it's unlikely, it's certainly possible that they could miss a conclusion that was supported to some small degree by evidence obtained illicitly. This is more along the lines of the possibility I was suggesting.
