WNBA stars Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson were suspended seven games each Friday for their domestic violence arrest last month - the league's longest ban in its 19-year history.

WNBA President Laurel Richie said the league "takes all acts of violence extremely seriously" in handing down a suspension that represents nearly one-fifth of the 34-game regular season. Richie called the players' actions "unacceptable."

Griner plays for the defending champion Phoenix Mercury and Johnson for the Tulsa Shock. The players got married last week in Phoenix and their teams open camp Sunday. The league season begins June 5.

The players were arrested April 22 on suspicion of assault after they fought in a home they recently bought.

The league spent the last few weeks investigating. The WNBA said Johnson pushed Griner in the shoulder and she responded by pushing her in the back of the neck. The confrontation escalated to include wrestling, punches, and the throwing and swinging of objects. The 6-foot-8 Griner received a bite wound on her finger and scratches on her wrist; the 6-4 Johnson received a scratch above her lip and was diagnosed with a concussion.

The Work: Spring HS Scrimmages Day One

This afternoon I attended the South Florida High School scrimmages at FIU, an event put on by NFL Senior Director of officiating Al Riveron. There were 5-6 games going on at all times so it is possible that I missed some kids worthy of being talked about, but here are my observations from the event. More content will be coming over the next couple days. Deerfield Beach, Miramar, Southridge, Killian, Monarch, and others will be there tomorrow morning for Day 2.

Columbus
**I came away very, very impressed from what I saw out of Columbus, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

**2016 Miami commit Josh Uche is first of all a very good kid. I will have a full interview up with him over the next few days, but Columbus defensive coordinator Alex Trujillo was absolutely raving to me about the kid’s work ethic and attitude. I caught the same vibe when I spoke with him afterwards.

**Uche has gained 18 pounds in the last couple of months and he is at 6-2, 217 right now. He has the frame to hold a lot more weight and his father is about 6-5 so it is highly possible that he continues to grow.

**2016 CB Trajan Bandy is small, but can really cover and is a ball of explosiveness. He has a lot of interest in Miami, but he’s just not what they are looking for. Ideal nickel corner.

**2017 CB Marlin Brooks is one to watch. He is the son of former Cane Nate Brooks so the bloodlines are strong.

**2018 CB Joshua Jobe might have been the most physically impressive player on the field. He is a freshman, but I was told he is older than his class so I don’t think he will be able to play all four years. Jobe is already 6-1 and flies. Columbus DC Alex Trujillo told me that he compares to a young Deon Bush. He is still learning the nuances of the position, but Miami is already on him hard and he is big on the Canes. Full story coming with him.

**2016 LB Bryce Handy was laying the wood all afternoon. He is the son of Darren Handy, who played center at Miami in the 80s. Handy has good size at about 6-1, 220 and plays downhill. Will be a good get for a mid-level BCS program.

**This next name will get some people very excited and/or very upset if you are a Miami fan. 2017 LB Guy Thomas, who is the younger brother of Booker T. Washington legend and current FSU linebacker Matthew Thomas, is just a freak. “Wow” was the first word that came to mind when I saw him lining up with his hand in the ground because he is already about 6-4 and has not even scratched the surface of his ability. Him and Uche should form an incredible tandem off the edge.

**Offensively, I am a fan of 2017 QB Alex Ros. He gives the Explorers a running dimension from that spot and throws a nice spiral.


Go Canes

Worth a repost:

There Golden goes with his bs...the players either didnt qualify, transferred due to playing time, were arrested or booted for breaking team rules...I cant remember a SINGLE signee leave because of the NCAA.

Tell us kids are sticking around because you recruited better, that your staff took less chances, tell us kids are sticking around because they believe in what you're building...but please dont try to keep the NCAA excuse alive. Just when I think Golden was turning the corner on his BS train he tries to sell us on some more.

Posted by: UMike | May 15, 2015 at 12:24 PM

The truth might be more nuanced.

The NCAA impact (hitting August 2011) could - and should - have been a crippling blow to Miami's 2012 recruiting class. It's possible that in order to salvage the class in the absolute worst part of the scandal, that we were not as picky that year as we were afterwards.

Of the 33 commitments that year, 10 were gone by the end of their first year and another 5 were gone by the end of their second year. Only 2 were four star players, the rest were three star players.

If you look at how long the players lasted from each class, you will see a positive trend:

2008 Class: 32 recruits, 10 gone after 2 years
2009 Class: 19 recruits, 03 gone after 2 years
2010 Class: 29 recruits, 13 gone after 2 years
2011 Class: 19 recruits, 10 gone after 2 years
2012 Class: 33 recruits, 15 gone after 2 years
2013 Class: 19 recruits, 06 gone after 2 years

And the 2014 class, with 1 player transferring so far.

As far as I know, the NCAA mess was never cited as a reason for leaving. I would guess that it may have been a factor for some.

UMike

Go Canes...I appreciate you trying to take up for your boy Golden one more time even on a new blog and trying to get this debate going again...good job....and Tony..good stats as always, I appreciate the work you put in...but none of what you posted makes what Golden said any less bs. Your info would of opened the door for Golden to be truthful and say they reached a lot in 2012 due to the NCAA bombshell, but he choose to go the BS "blame NCAA on everyting" route lol

No one can name a single player that TRANSFERRED or was BOOTED from the team because of the NCAA mess. I am positive we lost players during recuiting due to the NCAA, that cannot be denied...but AFTER players signed the NCAA had zero to do with those losses. They were kicked off the team for rules violations or arrests. One or two were simply homesick (Hester) and others didnt not quality due to grades or test scores. I think we had another 1-2 "retire" to injury, but not 100% on that. And maybe another couple that were happy with scheme and/or playing time.

We have not lost a single player AFTER they signed and were enrolled due to the NCAA. I would have zero issue if Golden said they took to many chances in one class cause they came in late the NCAA bomb dropped, but to try and blame the NCAA for the attrition in bs.

If anyone can find a single player that transferred or was kicked of the team due to the NCAA "cloud" Id be happy to hear it.

It is an interesting spike in departures with that one particular class.

There were a lot of kids who transferred out for reasons neither you or I will ever know.

Posted by: Go Canes | May 16, 2015 at 06:33 PM

Name ONE player Go Canes...name ONE player that transferred or got the boot because of the NCAA "cloud".....I will wait.

UMike

Every player, or just about every player, that has left the program in the time frame being discussed either gave a reason, the reason was reported by the media or the reason was obvious (rape).

So I will go ahead and take those players words about why they left. Actually it wouldnt make any sense to leave and NOT blame the NCAA mess if it were really the case. What player would transfer because the the NCAA "cloud" and then blame playing time, scheme, home sick etc? That would be pretty dumb.

Like I said, no doubt we lost players due to the NCAA mess in recuiting...not a SINGLE player has been documented as leaving the program after signed because of it.

Even if the number of players that left from that first class was high because of reaches, they still didnt leave because of the NCAA, that would mean coaches took chances on bad character kids because of it of the NCAA.

At this point you're arguring just for the sake of aruging, but since you're labeled a homer it will conveiently be overlooked by management.

TonyCane

Bottom line, at this point it does not matter. Everything will be settled by facts on the ground this season. Miami will either be back this season or not. Either way, we will be having a totally different discussion.

UMike

Tony...I 100% agree with you. And I had nothing to say about past players transferring until Golden gave that bs excuse.

But you are right, it does not matter now. We have the talent now to win as we did last year...hope we put it together. Id much rather talk about a Canes beat down or big games as a ranked team etc

Lurker

I mean who cares what Golden was trying to say with that statement. What difference will it make in the end?

Most of what comes out of the mouths of ALL college football coaches when speaking to the media is either spin, BS, or giving them just a little and holding back a lot. As a rule, they're paranoid, worried about giving too much pertinent information, or just covering their asses, or holding back, as I already mentioned.

It's obsessive almost to the point of ridiculousness to parse every quote. The coaches and players either will, or they won't excel this coming season. Rather than nitpicking every single out of context quote, I'm support the players, the team, and pray for the best. That's what I'm going to do.

Go Canes

Just because a kid doesn't say "Hey I'm leaving because of the NCAA investigation", doesn't mean the uncertainty, the negativity, not playing in a bowl, not winning, not knowing what the future holds didn't factor in their decision.

Some things are not as black and white as you are trying to make them.

Just my opinion.

Kevin Grooms...never made it in.

If I could invest money into an athlete it would be Steph Curry. He might win the next 3 ships and if he does may be the most popular star in sports. He's likeable and his game is unique.

What may have been missed with FSU having been swept by Clemson this weekend on the diamond is that the Noles ended the season tied with NDU in the ACC as a result, meaning FSU dropped a seed to #4 in the ACC and will be in the pool with #1 Louisville instead of in UM (#2)'s bracket. The brackets go with 1-4-5-8 vs. 9 winner and 2-3-6-7vs.10 winner.

This means UM will get NDU, NC State, UVa vs. G Tech winner in pool B.

FSU will have to deal with Louisville and Clemson, the team that just swept them, in their bracket, along with UNC vs. V Tech in their play-in game.

The play-in games are on Tues (first game at 11, and second shortly after) to begin the ACC tnmt, and the action takes place at the Durham Bulls athletic park.

Bottom line is that the U is looking like they're beginning to peak at the right time, hopefully not too soon, and maybe not so much for FSU, although it's a whole new season starting this week.

That's correct.
You have to go through with your payment, including entering all the information (credit card, address, phone no., mail address etc.), but uncheck the box "register with paypal" or "create a paypal account" (I'm not exactly sure what the text was).
I'm not a big fan of creating accounts and leaving my data everywhere, so when I found I could support Ohio's cause without having to sign up, I did.

You don't like it when someone disagrees with you, I get that. It's your right. But "punk"? Really?

Enough with the keyboard warrior mentality.

Yes, I disagree with what I observe to be constant nitpicking. I think it's ridiculous and obsessive because it happens all the time. That's my opinion. It's not a character attack. It's an opinion. It's a characteristic I see all over the Internet, social media, etc. People not just here, this place is relatively stable by comparison, but an attack dog mentality.

I think it bothers some people on here because I express a strong opinion different from their own.

Mike, be honest, you would ban me if you could, you just don't like anybody having a different view, so you attack.

No...we exchange opinions with zero slurs..you like to claim you just have "strong opinions", but yet cry victim if someone else does and claim they attacked you. So it has nothing to do with not liking if someone has a different opinion...its the people that make jerk comments then cry foul.

The only person obessed here is you and your need to reply to every singple post that has UMike on it. "Keyboard warrior" (yet another attack/slur that will go unnoticed)..thats you, lets not even go there because its well documented you arent prepaird to do anything more than run your mouth/keyboard.

Cmon man! Check that. Over a meaningless Internet difference of opinion. I invite you to re read the timeline and see how you escalated this.

Maybe.

Time will tell.

Lurker

It's an investment in the facilities where the Miami Hurrucanes play. Everyone KNIWS that it was Ross's $400 million.

It's not reasonable to think that the University of Miami is trying to fool anyone, because everyone knows where that money comes from. Everyone. They're just putting it out there, look what we got, look where we play. I say celebrate that, rather than nitpick a marketing brochure. I'm not trying to stop other people from taking that negative approach, I just want to counterbalance i'm not trying to stop other people from taking that negative approach it

The bottom line is this: the canes will now play all their home games in a top of the line, one of the best in class, world class type facility.

That's reason to celebrate!

Lurker

Big hands and a small mobile device are a bad combination. Sorry about that mess up there.

SinisterCane

Regarding the stadium only, 400 mil invested IS A FLAT OUT LIE per they're marketing

Terrance Sullivan

So is the Canes playing at Sun Life free since the 2008 season or have they been paying rent and the Dolphins, Sun Life has gotten a cut off of tickets, parking, merchantdise, etc. If I am wrong some one enlighten me.

The Dude

What are we daying here? I'm confused. That Miami id lying saying that they've invested 600M when 400M is from Ross? Is this the issue, I want to know before I respond.

Terrance Sullivan

So OK let's say it's 200 million invested. Are we gonna get any argument over this.

The Dude

^^^ yeah. I'm like WTF right now.

I swear to all that's holy, after seeing that nutrition table, if I hear one Miami kid complain that they can't order a pizza because of the NCAA rules I'm gonna fly down there and smack the sh*t out of them.

While the $400 million renovation, being funded by Ross, is expected to help in attracting Super Bowls, college football championships and other big events to the stadium, the main benefit will be to those who regularly come to watch the Dolphins and Miami Hurricanes.

UM's athletic department marketing campaign stated they invested 400 million into Sun Life Staduim

Terrance...IIRC, UM pays $2M a year to play in SLS.

UM didn't say they invested that $400 million themselves. They said it was an "investment in the future". How is that NOT an investment in the facility the team plays in NOW, will play in for the foreseeable future, possibly the only stadium they will play in in our lifetimes.

As I already said, that's put out there with the knowledge that anyone interested would know that it was Ross's investment. When, and if, we ever stop playing at SLS, then they have to when was that clean from there. Not before.

This is exactly what I mean where every little thing is parsed, and then tried to be made into a huge negative for the university.

Also, the U is my school. I will not sit idly by while people call the institution that I love a lying institution. If someone is so naive that they think that was $400 million put up by the school, rather than another individual (Ross) in his facility for which the University of Miami Hurricanes plays all their home football games, then that's their problem. But I will continue to counter comments that slanders the school.

This is a lie.

That's not the point. While disagrement is essential for a living blog, calling somebody else "obsessive" and "ridiculous" is not. It's a personal attack.
If you think somebody is dead wrong, say so. But avoid comments about somebody as a person, unless it's something good.

I wonder if Golden had been fired and replaced by Butch if any of the objectors to the wording of the renovation-investment campaign would be so interested in deciphering the fine print of the message.

Which brings up the inevitable question whether U hate Golden more than you love the U.

That question answers itself of course.

Terrance Sullivan

I watched the YouTube video and they didn't say they paid for Stadium renovations they say they play there and are tenants which they are. But maybe they should of said it's 207 million investment so then people can't complain.

Terrance Sullivan

Great question Go Canes.

No Hate but yes my dislike for Golden is substantial but does not exceed my love for UM. At the moment I'm trying to find that UM marketing ad listing all of the thing sthey've individually invested in regarding facilities

I have seen Miami use the 400M to sell its program but I have bever seen them take credit for the investment. That video certainly didn't take credit for the investment.

LOL - it's part of the same marketing campaign. All you have to do is look. It's right there. Facilities investment at the school and all that.

This ad is misleading as if they're the one investing 400 million into the stadium.

Go Canes

Butch would have given the money himself.

CaneRock

LMAO! Now they wanna bring up Butch...ya'll see how they try to change the narrative.

I'll let Kehoe sort it out, but Milo reminds me of Linder, wouldn't be surprised if He's in the rotation at Left Guard.

Terrance Sullivan

Rock agreement on this class.
