I posted last week, that Rudolph was probably going to decom., probably to FSU.
No big loss. Dime a dozen. I'll say this though, FSU is starting to get a little toe-hold, inside our fence.

Death Penalty? How was this ever in the conversation? What we did was no where close to what SMU did. Far from what USC did. The injustice at Penn State didn't fetch one. We self reported ourselves go the NCAA. How is anyone talking of the death penalty. At best, we should be getting a slap on the pervabial wrist. Mark May should be banned from the Miami Dade county. If he comes, well then, 'whatever happens in Miami stays in Miami.'

Good article from CNNSI about how backwards the NCAA is. It just mentions Miami but it is about a wrestler at Minnesota.

Yeah, Him and Lil' Wayne:

Uncle Luke tells Lil Wayne Where he can go with his anti Miami Heat Sentiment

Miamians are mad as hell at rapper Lil Wayne because he said EFF! the Heat, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh on Sunday at a nightclub party in Houston. Lil Wayne even claimed he had sex with Bosh’s wife. That was way out of line. However, don’t blame Weezy for talking trash.

He has no respect for the city because people in Miami’s entertainment industry — from local radio DJs to South Beach nightclub promoters to the Heat’s front office — spread their legs for him and every out-of-town celebrity who rolls through town.

Lil Wayne treats Miami like his b---h because people let him.

When Weezy claimed he was thrown out of the Heat home game versus the Lakers, the franchise tried to downplay the incident, saying they only asked him to leave and he left on his own. That was a b---h move.

The Heat should have followed the Oklahoma City Thunder’s lead. Last year, Oklahoma City representatives told Lil Wayne to take a hike when he asked for courtside seats to one of the Thunder’s playoff games against the San Antonio Spurs. The Miami Heat should be giving court-side seats to the city’s true local hip-hop heroes, like Trick Daddy and Betty Wright.

Stars can call up the Heat and get a free front-row seat or have nightclubs give them free tables and bottles of liquor whenever they want. Lil Wayne gets away with it because venue promoters are desperate to get mentioned in the gossip blogs and magazines. Local record label owners and radio station programming directors are also guilty of brown-nosing these interlopers.

Up-and-coming local artists like Alyric, K Kutta, Blaze, and YD can’t get their songs played on the radio because the stations are too busy playing shit from Cash Money Records. When the radio people get some balls and stop acting like groupies, they will stop playing Lil Wayne and company’s music.

Hell, I want to know what Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, and all these so-called 305 rappers who hang with Lil Wayne have to say about him disrespecting our home team. They need to set Lil Wayne straight. When you disrespect Miami, you can’t be allowed into any arena, restaurant, club, or even McDonald’s to get a burger. And you better not show your face in the hood.

None of this bullshit would have happened under my watch. In 1992, when I had a beef with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, they had to cancel a concert in Miami. For years, they couldn’t set foot in the 305 because it was so hot. Suge Knight had to come down and smoke a peace pipe with me.

We also kept it real at the old Miami Arena, where I had season tickets from the first tip-off on July 13, 1988. I sat in the fourth row behind the basket near former Miami City Manager Joe Arriola. For a game against the New York Knicks, filmmaker Spike Lee was sitting in front of me. It was right after he trashed me on The Arsenio Hall Show.

Joe and I cussed him out during the entire first quarter. Arriola ended up getting thrown out, but Spike didn’t come back for the second half.

I’m gonna have to come out of retirement because Miami’s entertainment industry has gone soft. I’ve got no problem telling Lil Wayne where he can go.

TonyCane

I think it comes into the conversation because of
1 ) Reputation
2 ) The NCAA likely considers the Miami allegations as far worse than USC or Ohio state. On a collegiant sports level, they probably consider it worse than Penn State.

It's really up to Shalala to maximize the medias disgust with the NCAA investigation antics and put media pressure on the NCAA to settle. She's got a great window of opportunity.

CGNC

Raize you around? Congrats on that Flyers win (hard to say that - LOL). Craziness all around, penalty boxes filled up for both. Nothing is ever normal between those two teams.

NigerianCane

@canerock:
As Miami has gone Hollywood, the city has gone softer; more money. Less testastorone. I remember when u couldn't even play east coast rap driving in Miami in your car. Sell outs like DJ Khaled was smart to change his ways. Back in the day, him & irie used to kiss so much east coast ass. Even fat joe, who is east coast, had to 'kiss the ring' b4 he was fully accepted. Lil' Wayne needs to head back on the I-95 to the Noia. Honestly though Atlanta mofos make me more mad. Their whole culture is a rip off of Miami culture. Everything they did in music, we did it 1st. Booty music, crunk, u name it. But like u say, phuk'em all...

Thanks. I watched that game and you can tell they really love each other, LOL. That 5 on 3 was crazy and exciting.

5shipsago

It don't matter how you slice & dice our situation, the NCAA hates the "U" and ain't going down without a fight with us over these sanctions. I fully expect they will at least try and give us at least 15 more ship reductions, reduce visits with recruits and probably be on probabtion 3 years, with 2 bowl losses, which we have already taken.

NigerianCane

That's loosing 5 ships a year for 3 years. I can take that.
What the hell are our FL congress men doing. They should be setting up an a panel to investigate the NCAA. They should drag them to the hill to face congress to answer question. Donna should use her connect in the government to get Holder to investigate the NCAA.

"We are supportive of Miami's continued efforts to work with the NCAA on bringing resolution to this case. Miami's cooperation throughout this process should be commended and they have self-imposed significant sanctions. They've been forthright and diligent in their efforts to fully cooperate with the NCAA and it's time for this case to be brought to closure."

Probably so. We have a DB coach coaching RB's, A TE coach coaching WR's, and at present we don't have a TE coach. Also a O-Coordinator, who has limited experience calling his on plays. On defense we have experienced coaches who don't have the overall talent and haven't shown the consistent ability as coaches, to get the most out of what they do have to work with. Should be interesting.

I been trying to tell U that!

JCane

Duke is taking it to the Hokies in hoops, up by 18 a few min. before the half. I expect they'll be continuing to gradually peak approaching their rematch with the Canes.

Wasn't A. Highsmith originally a DL when he came to the U before being converted to RB? Can't remember 100%, but pretty sure.

I hate the fact that this NCAA garbage is going to go on and on for a while, likely continuing to give fodder to other universities to use against the U with recruiting while we still may end up with some scholarship reductions, a likely outcome. I still don't get how the NCAA can act so high on their horse after how much the U has already given over the last 2+ years, aside from all of their own transgressions. OSU and USC stalled and were anything but transparent, gave up nothing along the way, and ended up without all that much worse than the U has already done to itself. If the NCAA really wanted schools to demonstrate transparency, they'd reward it instead of sending the message they're sending. However, after all of their own lack ofinst. control, they feel it necessary to try to send a message out that they're still in charge, and the U just happens to be next on the agenda. I don't see Pres. Shalala giving in unless mostly comfortable with the consequences (or feeling like there is no choice in a way for all lose the least face possible). However, this likely will lead to even more delays, and the time is the issue that lets other schools put fear into recruits.

Some LoTR quotes that are applicable in this battle against the NCAA (with some paraphrasing):

“That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.”

“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.”

“I am Shalala the White. And I come back to you now… at the turn of the tide.”

"What is this new devilry?"

“There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of Men for this treachery.”

"There is always hope."

“A day may come when the courage of men fails… but it is not THIS day.”

“The board is set, the pieces are moving. We come to it at last, the great battle of our time.”

"YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"

Hassan

AG is recruiting some elite athletes. Looks at his recuiting classes, forget stars if guys are not huge like taylor gadbois the guard from cypress bay etc they are elite athletes, I have not had time to analyze it but you if run down our 85 our team is much bigger and more athletic then before Golden arrived. We do not have 200lb LB's starting as freshman, we are redshirting guys and adding mass, our DL are long and strong, our DT's are becoming more stout, our OL is huge, we have every type of WR you can imagine and each of them has some special quality speed, size, hands, etc. our safeties are are athletic as any in the country. Last year Schnelly said we looked as good getting off the bus as any team he had seen, this summer we will look even better. Think about this a guy like Griffin is either going to go grey shirt to qualify or will probably Redshirt.... think about that the #1 TE or #3 WR in the country will almost for sure RS, if that is not depth I do not know what is. If you guys are not excited about this team then you need to go root for another team. if anyone thinks Golden does nto have an eye for talent think about this, one of Jimmy Johnson's things he used to do more then any other talent evaluator and Butch Davis also picked this up is looking at how players perform in other sports, I can name at least 10 guys in those two era's that was Big East track and field performers or other sports, even vince wilfork was a shot putter, now you look at Golden he has recruited the #1 baseball player on your team, and the top ranked recruit for the Basketball team, that man has an eye for talent and when you stock your team full for elite athletes and you RS them and get them to buy into a system after a couple of years they start playing and can't help but make plays because of their gifts. We have a soft schedule next year, we can go 12-0 yeah I said it 12%er

CaneRock

Randy had an eye for talent too, but He had cataracts when it came to develpment.

Hassan


Randy was not the worst recruiter or anything of course a case can be made that he recruited some talented kids but one of the main points is look at the size of the team now and the team then, we seem to be much bigger to me, we are recruiting taller, bigger, stronger faster athletes overall. It will pay off, I remember a few years back we looked like one of the smallest teams in the country, we looked like a HS team or D3. Now we are starting to look like one of the top schools in the country, one more year and this team will have the horses to match up with anyone and play many styles and not be pushed around.

TonyCane

Well, one thing that was said after AG took over was how poorly conditioned the players were. That there was no requirement for the players to eat meals, and that a percentage of them were skipping proper nutrition. That had to contribute a lot to how they performed.

orange 'n green in the vein

https://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/2013/FEB13/DBFeb21.html

I keep telling you guys that there's 124 FBS programs now so UM finished probably worse than you think last year in defense, but here's some more reiteration of what you already knew. The mutant from Philly is useless.

JCane

Another more all-inclusive summary of what's going on all the way around, although we've already discussed most of it here anyway:

http://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8973237/former-miami-hurricanes-coaches-want-case-thrown-report-says

Canerock: Lmao....shannon had cataracts when it came to developing it....absolutely right. Developing means nutrition, conditioning/strength training, learning football skills and creating the right atmosphere of healthy competition rather than playing favories and creating complacency. This didn't happen to the degree necessary to allow the U to be any better than mediocre, and in the ACC at that. Golden is turning the ship gradually.

TonyCane

JCane, that baffles me that we let the nutrition part lapse. From reading between the lines I recall that Golden seemed to be somewhat shocked at the shape that the players were in when he first arrived.

TonyCane

OGV, I do hold out hope that the defensive performance was the result of a unique combination of factors:

1) Early departures for the NFL
2) Unexpected suspensions of key players (EJ, Ray Ray)
3) Youth of starters

You'd have to think that if it was all coaching, that it would have shown itself at Temple. That said, none of these conditions will be present (or at least not to the same degree).

Perhaps. But we still aren't going to have enough DTs that can play when next fall rolls around. I'm sure UM's defense will improve. But it needs to improve a LOT, and it's tough to see that happening.
