The key to beating VT this year will be:
Shutting down their running game.

Make their QB beat us with His arm.

And getting ours on offense...SIMPLE!!!

UMike

Wow..went from the joy of a $85k sale of my business, to no sale at all to perhaps losing the business all together to talks of divorce..all i about 48 hours....good times! When the hell does football start!!!!

The University of Miami has dismissed senior Ray-Ray Armstrong from the football team. Armstrong can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student at UM to complete his degree or the University will grant him a full release should he elect to transfer to another institution.

CaneRock

I guess that means Bush will play early.

Q

Wow ray ray. And he just missed that supplementAl draft wish him the best but damn. Crazed hype never translated to the field. Well Deon bush.. Come on down

"The University of Miami has dismissed senior Ray-Ray Armstrong from the football team. Armstrong can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student at UM to complete his degree or the University will grant him a full release should he elect to transfer to another institution."

Wow. Holy Wow.

We need Deon Bush now.

86Cane

Hassan...Gotta say: U were right. Might as well tell them all of what U know now?

Q

Welppppp guess a scholarship just opens up for you Dante phillips

LB

It's official. He's off the UM roster site as well.

The What

Best of luck ray ray. Disappointed to hear that. Always wish the best for Miami players especially one that chose to come back when his peers bailed. But you gotta keep your nose clean especially when the NCAA is all over you (if the rumors are true).

Best of luck ray ray

CoCane

Dam Ray Ray... Smh

herbieibis

That figures. Just continues the trend of the 5 star curse. What a flipping waste and really Al gave this dude all kinds of rope and naturally when you do that, they hang themselves. Next is SeanTrelle, is he going to keep the curse alive?

LB

How many times have I reiterated:

5 star players, 5 star issues. I believe I recall a lengthy one-sided conversation to that effect.

However, when you get a player with a 5 star attitude, a 5 star heart, and a 5 star love for the U (Chickillo)...

...you get results.

LB

Slightly off-topic:

There are no such things as victimless crimes.

If I was Goldie, I'd stand in front of the whole team and ask one simple question,"Does everyone get the point". I got my dam broom out and I'm ready to sweep you supposed idiot super-stars out the door. Yes we are NFL football factory but you have to pay the price first before you walk out or get thrown out the door to superstardom. You guys that are all about me, your day has come and gone. You will work your Azz off or you will be gone, no more red carpet treatment. Some of those guys that left early probably could of been first rounders had they stayed but they thought more highly of themselves, than the NFL did, so which would you rather be a 1ST rounder or a tweener round Pick? The choice is yours, well wait a minute, the choice ain't yours, if you don't care where you get drafted then you will be gone because that means you ain't working hard enough, you're trying to cruz on my watch & that ain't happening! Now that we have that straight anymore questions?

UpNorthCane27

Well Dante Phillips to UT...... guess we got an extra schooly for a baller this year.


Ray Ray was my favorite player on the team i had faith he was going to turn it up this year. Its a damn shame but i wish him the best somewhere else.

longtimecanefan

Sorry to hear Ray Ray is moving on but as they say...

next man in......

Ohio_Cane

This makes me sad. RR was one of my favorite players, but unfortunately, his head isn't on straight. Good riddance to bad seeds, I guess.

On the bright side, there's a guy named Deon Bush who works harder than RR, doesn't have the self-entitlement RR has, nor does he have the hype that RR had to try to (and failed at) living up to.

Willie Will in Nashville

Ohio,

Thanks, I kinda figured that. What about VH3??

HawaiiCane

to, if I recall correctly, they're the ones that dropped a beer keg on Randy Shannon's when He was the DC.

I believe that the "keg incident" happened at the Miami/WVU game when Termaine Mack blocked the punt with 15 seconds left and Miami won 10-7

badbart

I have a respectful hatred of FSU because they never run from us...but I loathe Florida and Virginia Tech....

j.w.

Good morning folks! Great day at the CA State Fair- the canespace shirt was a big hit, Soup- I can't believe how many Canes fans are around here, I hardly ever run into any. :)

Please don't demean VT and make it sound like UF or FSU. It is not.

SJM- I hope you didn't get the impression I was attacking the school, just having some fun with their football team!) Sorry about the Northwestern/Southwestern thing, I should have figured that one out. But like CEO said, we need our guys to hate the opponents again, we'll respect them after the games are over. :)

CGNC

UMIke what the heck is going on?

solar - welcome back brah, been too long

UMike - keep your head up, hopefully things will simmer down, sounds like it got heated very quickly (as things usually do when it comes to anything monetary) .. hopefully cooler calmer heads will prevail and talk out the issues at hand


Six

Who the hell is Ray Ray Armstrong?

No loss in cutting bait with that kid

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

Still laughing about going to a certain steakhouse, ordering chicken and then tweeting about it. What a dumbass

HawaiiCane

I guess my quite summer has gone away... oh well!

From what was told by Golden, work ethic shouldn't have been a problem. Dude got a black shirt and was first on the "workers" when Golden responded to such questions.

Furthermore, I don't think Golden has to say anything. This speaks loud enough.

Ohio_Cane

UMike, very sorry to hear this. Hoping your situations clear themselves up quickly and painlessly.

Ohio_Cane

LB, agreed.

Ray Ray didn't have a problem with work ethic this year. He was working his tail off.

Also agreed that no words need spoken by Golden. The empty chair in the meeting room, empty locker, and Sean Taylor's jersey number being available should speak volumes.

RRA = dumb ass

2013 DE Maquedius Bain says he's no longer committed to #FSU

Tee hee, tee hee! ;-)

Hassan


First of all I wish Ray Ray Armstrong good luck in school and in his football career if he is allowed back to the U for his Pro Day i will wish him well. So people on this blog know a few current players and i can tell you that the only reason Seantrell is back on the team is he was voted back by the players..... Ray Ray has some NCAA issues and this call was not made by Golden.....

anyways ask skreetz how is Deon Bush looking?

LB

For Bain:

The depth chart is a lot more attractive at Coral Gables.

Heisman:

Landry Jones is not a safe bet. It could be argued that the Sooners play 7-8 quality opponents. Not a safe bet at all.

I really like Barkley. In some aspects, more than Luck. The schedule isn't as bad as Oklahomas, as they get the Ducks at home. They also go to transitional Stanford.

My feelings on the 2012 FSU schedule are well known. EJ Manuel for Heisman? Hilarious.

Wisconsin's schedule looks REALLY good. They don't play Michigan in the regular season. Montee Ball?

I never take West Virginia seriously, so that's out for Geno Smith.

I have no idea who to predict. A sleeper, perhaps? I'll bet against Jones due to schedule and the unbroken propensity for the Sooners to lose a winnable conference game. Other than that...

...Ryan Willams?

Ohio_Cane

Ray Ray has some NCAA issues and this call was not made by Golden.....

Heard this a few weeks ago. Preferred to not believe it.

86 can tell me if he wants me to post what I heard. Probably the same thing U know/heard, Hassan.

dadesfynest83

LMAO @...

"And don’t get me started on game day traditions. The Hokie walk to the stadium is a nice tradition. Jumping around like 5-year olds to a Metallica song stolen from Mariano Rivera isn’t."

o man, that was great. And it feels good to post on here again. I was gone for a while, a long while. I kinda had to be away to concentrate on planning for that thing where you say "I do". And Twitter doesn't help either, that's another reason I've been missin, Papa Cane is the man on Twitter so it feels like I don't miss a beat.

Sup spacers, hope all is well. And regarding this whole Ray Ray thing all I have to say is this...never EVER has one person been bigger than the U. And when have we fallen without not only getting up, but getting up and comin back with a fury?!?!?

I wish him the best, relly do. I just hope nobody was surprised by his dismaissal, after all, it was his THIRD booster/agent related issue in a year. Enough is enough...
Plus, it just guarantees a Carter commitment next Monday.

U guys ever notice that all the problems we've had with guys have all beeen Randy's boys? Hmmm...

w/e man on to the next one, can't wait for kickoff!!!

#goCanes

Ohio_Cane

PS - With all this stuff going on, I forgot about the above post... Very nice article, JW! Well done!

Sorry for the late props

LB

I turned on the WQAM stream for 5 minutes (first time since Sid left). The very first thing I hear?

Laz from Cutler Ridge.

That dude is a media monster. He's the Christopher Lee of Canes fans. He's everywhere.

UpNorthCane27

Ohio bro spill the beans on what you know....I believe 86 already gave Hassan the green light on it....

Ill be shocked if the players really voted against keeping ray ray but decided to keep henderson, man that mustve been heartbreaking and a reality check if true.

LB

If there are NCAA issues, there's nothing the players can do to help.

LB

"Plus, it just guarantees a Carter commitment next Monday."

Armstrong was a senior. Carter is in the class of 2013.

dadesfynest83

wow...yea to know that ur brothers don't want you to go to war w/ them kinda sux. I mean, that wreaks of an attitude problem...

dam man...

Think this...
what does Golden's decision to allow him to transfer ANYWHERE say? To me it says, go ahead (fill in the blank), deal with the headache if u dare. wow man, just wow

dadesfynest83

yea LB I'm jus sayin...on to the next one...

I'm willing to bet we lead the nation in landing 5 star players that've just not panned out

#gocanes

LB

"Think this...

It's not surprising. Golden knows what he's doing.

"I'm willing to bet we lead the nation in landing 5 star players that've just not panned out"

Heh. I assumed you missed the debates?.

86Cane

UpNorth...just to summarize what Ohio and Hassan both "know" are some additional details that the current issue "allegedly" has to deal with agents (again) and $$$ (again). Hassan even had some "evidence" he emailed me from a source and Da Skreetz gave us some 411 that I purposely chose NOT to post on the blog because nothing was "official" yet.

I wasn't going to put it out there until we had confirmation from Golden or UM which basically came today when Ray Ray was released by UM. We are VERY careful NOT to put players or negative news out on "front street" until it comes directly from UM.

That is called "responsible reporting". We don't want to be FIRST we want to be RIGHT.

conch salad

If there is any issue with Seantrel, it definitely involves his love for the maui wowie.

The What

Lots of drama today.

F
Nice article jw.

Best of luck UMike

Kinda sad if your own teammates vote you out. I really do feel bad for ray ray. I really hope he finds great success on and off the field. It's one thing for your coaches to lose confidence in you. It's another when it's your teammates.
