And BTW might loose to Central. Lots of talent in South Florida. The Canes just need their share of local recruits and they will dominate college football

Hawaii normally has a crazy schedule anyway since they travel thousands of miles for half their games.

I was just watching the Hawaii/Cal game - it's on now - and not only is Hawaii playing Cal in Australia tonight, they then have to turn around and go back to Hawaii. Then in a week they have to fly to Michigan from Hawaii. That's a lot of traveling.

Australia to Hawaii to Michigan in eight days. Insane.

Go Canes!

So is it officially game week because we play FAMU in seven days or is it traditionally Monday?

I'm going with today.

It's game week!!!!

Go Canes!

Ugh: BREAKING: @CanesFootball DE Al-Quadin Muhammad and LB Jermaine Grace dismissed from team, per UM.

How did this go from a 1 - 2 game suspension to dismissal? Why keep giving them reps if you know you are going to dismiss them? This is bad news

Go Canes!

Our four top LBs going into this season, all freshmen?

Gordinier a RS, the rest straight greenhorns.

Man oh man.

We Will be Ok. Don't Give the Kids an excuse for Violating NCAA rules, especially Muhammad. That's Why You Recruit the Best three Linebackers in America Last Year. Plus Bethel and Joe Jackson. We Ready.

DE depth shot too. Hopefully this will be a message to the team

Go Canes!

And what about Coley.

Can't see him surviving this one either.

To quote the great Florida Evans:

"Damn, damn, damn!!!"

Lur-ker

I think UM was told to dismiss them by the NCAA in so many words.

It says the NCAA was part of the decision.

Assuming that's the case, not too much we could do but go along. Especially while still on probation.

At the end of the day, these kids have to make smarter decisions.

Go Canes!

If true, whew.

Ariz: Stacy Coley will be fine. That's a HUGE one to keep.

At this point I could give a F about AQM. It's been one thing after another with him.

The one that hurts is Grace. Kids been quiet and slowly building up to be a superstar.

Scuttlebutt now is that they were also less than honest during the investigation and that that's why the NCAA told UM to dismiss them both.

God have we had any Jersey players ever work out?

Well Jersey boy Gordinier better step up and not be a screwup like Jersey AQM

Go Canes!

I'm definitely not going to bash you.

I've been saying this system sucks, and this is yet another example of the punishment not fitting the "crime".

But crappy and unfair as it is, its the system in place and these guys all knew what they were doing.

They needed to think about the potential consequences of their actions, especially with what we just went through. They obviously did not or chose to ignore what could happen.

Bad choice, gigantic consequences.

Reading everywhere that Grace and AQM weren't honest with the school or they could have stayed.

Another bad decision.

Man, this sucks.

At end of the day, they have to make better decisions and know that there are already on probation. They cost themselves millions on something they could have purchased in less than year. I hope it sends a message to the rest of the team.

Telling starving men not to eat will never work. Not that taking $200/ Hr freebie rental cars can be equated to free food, but driving like a baller can be a tough thing to decline for someone raised in poverty.

Gold-hen girl losers flushing out pre-kickoff, always a good thing! Neither could play from what I saw.

Now just need to flush GD/TS Mike Bradley permanently and you'll see some acceleration.

Totally agree AQM....We have a pretty deep DL where he can be replaced, now Grace, not so much! We will be hurting at the Linebacker position with Grace gone.

Go Canes!

Posted by: 1mg Of Epi | August 27, 2016 at 02:05 PM

Can't agree with that. I understand It's tough but I wonder how many others on the team had the same opportunity but made better choices.

The resident mental patient is so out of it, he doesn't realize losing Grace is a pretty big deal, considering how young and thin we are at linebacker.

The Only Person to be Pissed at is the Player or Players that made the Mistake. We're Already on Probation for dishonesty. I do Feel for Grace, but he made a mistake. We Will Overcome

Lur-ker

Ok. Three. Good find. I didn't even know the schedule from Jersey. Stubbs is one of my favorite unheralded players, people hardly ever bring him up, but he was good.

Recently the luck has been bad. Olsen, Figueroa, AQM, and I think a couple of others.

TheeMackJones

Well the Orange and Green prediction bubble has been popped. So I guess it puts a major damper on all those 10-2 or 11-1 predictions. He!!, why do you'll think I kept standing with my " 9-3 " prediction. Albeit that may so south with the Gulf stream currents. hUh

As for D-line depth. It's still an unproven commodity and there's always the injury bug.

Sarasota 'cane

If it wasn't a booster or coach then it sounds like it would be an agent who paid for these rentals, in which case they committed a felony under Florida law.

If not an agent then maybe it's a "honeypot" to lure the kids into trouble. In any event the school handled like a boss and didn't add to our issues with a cover-up!

No we're not...with the exception of Dye, everybody during the investigation was forthcoming...and we're not on probation for Dye being less than forthcoming.

And BTW, phuck the NCAA...not too long ago, it was revealed that crappy valley hid child rape going back as far as the 70s...so they straight up lied about how long they knew that sissy was rapin' boys, and not a peep from the NCAA about it. They also got their case expedited, got off probation before us, & Pater-HOE's WL loss record was preserved.

So miss me with that "dishonesty" BS, they don't deserve the truth.

Totally get your point, and free rental cars is a bad example, but when we start seeing cases of institutionalized impermissible benefits A la ole miss, it points to a much more pervasive problem than just a couple dunderheads getting $200/Hr rental cars.

CaneRock

WTF is Horn even talking about, didn't He have an anti-NCAA blog at one time?

CR into there's a big difference between being anti NCAA and being smart and playing under the rules as they are, like them or not.

I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but it makes you wonder.

UMike

good think we open the season with a few cupcakes, we will be VERY raw at the LB spot most likely starting 3 freshman and our depth at DE will be young. But thankfully there is talent there.

What if the owner was just a fan? If a Cane were to come into my business I couldnt help but to want to give him something free cause um a fan lol

CaneRock

Go Canes!...I hear ya', but Grace & AQM will be alright. IIRC, they can still go the JUCO route, or some other type of lower level ball. And they'll get individual workouts with NFL teams, they won't go undrafted.

UMike

They can go to EMCC and hang with Ms Wagner

CaneRock

LOL UMike. EMCC probably called em' already.

Go Canes!

Rut roh...

Reynolds: To put all this in some perspective, Braxton Berrios is Miami's 13th-leading returning tackler from last season.

BigWindyCane1

Ouch. Losing Grace and AQM hurts. No doubt

BigWindyCane1

Michael Irvin attended the BTW v. STA game and inspired the crowd as Canes typically do. Lots of Canes in attendance on the sidelines. STA lost and I don't think that they will play BTW again any time soon, but Irvin put on a show and inspired us all. Hopefully, the Canes picked up some recruits last night.

No it doesn't the team was going to suck again with them as much as they did in the past.

Won't miss anything from either of them. Anybody saying otherwise is working an angle from sid-tard central.

I read recently that a common topic on uga boards was that every year Richt would suspend or expel a player(s) for some non egregious offense, and that these suspensions would Reverberate on the field. Fans would debate how much of an impact this little habit of his played into his inability to win the big games as often as the fans felt he should've. They might've been on to something.

Kicking 3 players off the team for taking a rental car for a joy ride seems a bit much. This one leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Go Canes!

This had nothing to do with CMR imo.

With what we just went through, the moment those three mislead or lied to compliance they were done.

1mg Of Epi

I dunno GC. I know ncaa has no love for Miami, but based on other more serious cases around the country lately, where the punishmet meted out has been far less drastic, I think dismissal came from in house.

As far as our own house goes... I have a hard time believing 3 starters are kicked off the team without CMRs blessing. He's running this ship.

The situation is what one would expect based on his reputation.

thirstybuzzardcane

Being that we're on probation, you don't want to fuk around with the NCAA. I mean we were lucky our penalties were minor because of some idiot lawyer. It could have been A LOT worse.

If we weren't on probation, these kids probably get 3 games at most. I wonder if they did this after Young got caught? If so, you can't be any dumber! I have a feeling Coley will be gone too....not sure why his name is out there, maybe he was just along for the ride?

This was not Richt's decision.

I'll stake one large on it for anyone that wants to play.

This decision was made by compliance in consultation with the NCAA. To close the matter and avoid us using ineligible players and having to forfeit games in the future.

So if you think it's Richt, I got 1k burning in my wallet that says it isn't.

Dead wrong.

NCAA gave Miami no choice.

This decision was made with Miami's compliance department, school lawyers, NCAA officials, NCAA lawyers, and the player's lawyers. That's who was involved.

Richt had ZERO to say.

When it comes to compliance and the NCAA, Richt has no voice. Other than the rumor is he was pissed it happened. Pissed at the overall situation.

He may have to sit a game or two or none. I didn't know about that part.

Posted by: Lur-ker | August 27, 2016 at 09:14 PM

Are you suggesting the ncaa investigated and ruled that 3 players were to be expelled? Or are you suggesting the school unilaterally decided to expel 3 players for a relatively minor infraction?

Actually, no need to answer. Kinda difficult to take you seriously. Some of Lurkers greatest hits:
- They weren't lined up 7 yards deep in the end zone.
- Miami is too poor to afford a real coach.
- Attendance wouldn't be impacted by said real coach, certainly not enough to help pay for him.
- The SEC has always been swimming in far more cash than the ACC could ever hope for.
- Miamis athletic department isn't responsible to reimburse the univ for anything. Specially not each scholly.
- It's the players fault, not the scheme.
- The DL isn't playing paddy cake nor are they taught to.
- Al is a great coach.
- While off topic, still My personal favorite... France loves it's Muslims!

Re-read my post. Never said I knew what happened. I make it a point to never claim something to be fact, unless I know it to be fact. Nor do I

I said I have a hard time believing CMR had no say in the matter, which is a far cry from saying CMR had say in the matter. Do you need me to explain the difference.

As far as looking really,really stupid.... That is not a concern of mine around here. And I'm quite sure nobody all of a sudden thinks any less of me.

The herb says this, does it hurt losing those 2 well hell yes but let's face it mo would have left after this year anyway and Grace was a sr. So we are out more depth and that is it, neither was all acc, so 2 more goldenites are gone. Being stupid is one thing, being dumb and stupid is another.

Losing your top three tacklers from last season, Young, AQM and Grace hurts. At least the decision was made a week before the season began instead of later. The defensive coaches have a lot of work to do. The lack of depth at LBs got a lot worse. The Canes can still win 10 games but the defensive coaches will definitely earn their money this season

I couldn't agree..... alot of good comments but i just grabbed this one to make comments to. I dont walk in these kids shoes but rest assured, If I know that one day I will be making millions, the last thing I would do is something to screw that up. So now they can drive around in a 1990 civic instead of waiting a few years and drive a BMW I8 ....

EMCC, here comes 2 more players. Hopefully they will remember to bring a pencil and paper.

BigWindyCane1

According to reports, South Beach Exotic Rentals loaned the cars to these athletes in exchange for a stake in their professional futures. If true, that could potentially make them professional athletes. I don't think UM had a choice but to force Young, Grace and AQM to leave now rather than have the NCAA forfeit UM games later. The players made a huge mistake, and it will potentially cost them millions. Hopefully, South Beach Exotic Rentals will be banned from UM campus and prohibited from contacting UM athletes because they are also guilty for making these inappropriate offers to the players
