That idiot died his hair to match the joker? last time i checked jokers hair was green..... This kid is a scumbag and forever changed the lives of so many families. it is unfair and a cruel world we live in.

j.w.

What I fear is that the NCAA, unable to technically declare a violation on Penn State, decides to go Roger Godell on Miami and really crack down. A sanction akin to:

- 5 year bowl ban (less 1 year for self-imposed)
- 10 scholarships deducted per year, for 5 years.
- All victories between 2002 and 2010 forfeight
- Miami is obliged to return all money from bowls during this period.
- Probation for 10 years

Pretty close to what Penn State actually got!

Don't think anyone will be hit as hard as Penn State for a long, long time. Whatever mistakes UM made with boosters or telephone calls couldn't possibly be punished as badly as PSU if the NCAA wants anyone to take it seriously.

hate to change the subject-anyone been to the USVI St Thomas-St Croix? Me & the Mrs are heading there Friday for a week-looking for places to go other than the usual tourist traps, we like to go native when we travel-Thanks

TJL - I have not been to those locations but I would suggest tripadvisor.com. I have used that web site and found it to be very helpful.

-----------------------------------------

Politically and ethically, the NCAA can't give us anywhere close to what PSU got. Can U imagine the backlash they'd get from both sides if they did?

They'd be linking child rape, molestation and cover-up from the most powerful people at PSU, to kids getting free bowling, yacht rides, etc. at UM.

Can't and won't happen.

Hi everyone! Let's see within 24 hours, Six's place gets vandalised, Penn State gets a slow death penalty (which they deserved) and the Paterno family is complaining about the removal of wins from Joe Pa's record. Sounds like that family will never get it. Wow.

The Big 10's punishment for PSU

Penn State will not be allowed to participate in the Big Ten conference title game for the same four years in which it is banned from post season bowl games by the NCAA. Penn State will also not be allowed to share in the conference's bowl revenues for those four years, about a $13 million hit, according to a Big Ten press release. That money will be donated to children's charities, the release said.

Paterno's last interview: "had no inkling of it"

Old Skool

That's an interview with Pater(Don't)No.

With them picking Miami to finish 5th in the coastal this year I feel like we have been spit on with that ranking. Damon we need a good solid year this year. I know we have the coaches and talent just need to execute.

tallycane

Damn not Damon**

Ohio_Cane

Susan Miller-Degnan - UM Coach @GoldenAl told me about Seantrel Henderson: "He did show up late [to summer session]. Significantly late.'' But @GoldenAl also said of Seantrel: "Seantrel is having a great summer.'' He's sticking by him for sure.

j.w.

When does Golden speak today? I thought I saw 4:15 but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Ohio_Cane

Miller-Degnan: Fr LB Josh Witt, who missed #UM #Canes spring ball, has major concussion issues and will not play at Miami. I believe his UM career is over. Good kid. I feel bad for him.

3G Cane

Sad to hear about Witt, I was looking forward to seeing his progression over the next few years but you cant mess around with your melon.

herbieibis

I'm ready to dosed! Hurry up NCAA, I'm tired of waiting.

UpNorthCane27

Damn horrible news about WITT but at least hell get his education and stick with the team in some form or fashion im sure.....

Opens up another scholly though

Ohio_Cane

Joe Schad - PSU will have 10 less initial scholarships to offer each year for four years (total loss of 40). PSU will also have four year period where they must be at a maximum of 65 scholarship players (20 under standard limit)

Wow, that sucks, and He's a true Frosh at that.

Q

Wow. I was rooting for him. Now with the loss of him and rr that opens up two schollies

Ohio_Cane

Artie Burns commits in 8 minutes. Would be shocked if it's not Canes.

orange 'n green in the vein

The real shame is that Witt was an early enrollment which would have counted against '11 recruiting totals and now won't. There wasn't a worthless deadweight high school phenom bust from Southern Cal this year we could have wasted that scholly on instead?

UpNorthCane27

Artie Burns news????

THE MAN

Am I the only one who thinks it's complete BS to impose penalties on a bunch of kids and coaches that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Penn St scandal? That's the sh!tty thing about the NCAA, it's always penalizing people who had nothing to do with it instead of who actually did it. I guess it's hard when the people are gone, but there has to be some way to punish the people who actually were involved.

Q

This is from Ryan hill..got it from procanes I don't know all the details exactly but what I do know is that yahoo sports is usually always dead on it. If it it's true what they are reporting about Al golden, the university of miami should fire him where he stands. To think that this was a guy who hurricanes could put trust in to restore our program to what it once was, after he just dismissed a great player an leader in Ray Ray Armstrong now it seems he is just as guilty as that young man. I can only hope that there is some false accusations against him, but like I said if this is to be found true, the university has a big decision to make. " HOW CAN WE AS A UNIVERSITY, ALUMNI AND COMMUNITY EXPECT OUR YOUNG MEN TO DEVELOP INTO MATURE, HONEST YOUNG STUDENT ATHLETES WHO ARE HELD AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF ACCOUNTABILITY IF THE HEAD OF OUR ORGANIZATION IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE??? "

Ohio_Cane

Artie Burns news????

Posted by: UpNorthCane | July 23, 2012 at 03:04 PM
----------------------------------

Announcement any minute now. Will post as soon as he says it.

Ohio_Cane

ARTIE BURNS TO UM!!

YESSSSSS!

UpNorthCane27

NICEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!


And Q In Golden we trust!!!!!!!!!!

raizecane

The Man - as long as the NCAA punishes the innocent because the guilty are gone, there will always be wrong doings going on.

The NCAA is so "ass backwards" it's not even funny. Do you think for one minute a player on a team today gives a hoot what happens to a player 6 years down the road??? HELL NO!!!!! Do I know what the answer is?..No....but the current system needs some serious changes.

raizecane

Q - if ya aint cheat'n....you aint trying....lol.

CGNC

Posted by: THE MAN | July 23, 2012 at 03:04 PM

LOL - yes you would be the only one. Its always the actions of a few that cause the suffering of many. The University allowed this, therefore the University must pay. Simple, really. Football should never be at the expense of a kid molested by a pedophile

Ohio_Cane

Papa Cane - Yes Miami Hurricanes fans, Coach Golden has rebuilt the Miami Northwestern pipeline. Next target is Jamal Carter. Expect Miami as well.

86Cane

Burns baby! Not a shocker, but still feels good!

Q

That wasnt from me. I trust Al golden 100%. That was Ryan hill..ex cane. I believe in coach golden all the way.

UpNorthCane27

Our secondary is going to be something else in the near future.....

UpNorthCane27

Q my fault no wonder i was left waiting for what Ryan Hill said in your post...my fault bro


But def i believe in golden all the way also.

86Cane

Haven't been blogging last few days, needed some time off. In Anna Maria island with the wife relaxing.

UpNorthCane27

All i had to read again was this " Yahoo is usually dead on their news" from Ryan hill., to officially know he is a dumbass.

herbieibis

If we get Carter, then what about Hargreaves & Alexander. I thought we weren't going after but 2 DB's. Somebody mentioned that we might only sign 15-18 kids. I myself think we sign at least 20. We have 9 now. Still out there:
Grace
Thomas
Kirkland
Kearse
Whitfield
Hargreaves
Mek. Alexander
Sherit
Bain
Sedat
T. Williams
G. Williams
These are probably our main targets and of course we wouldn't get all of them but who of this group do you think would be locks for us. Also, if Collins bolts, who would be a back-up plan at RB?

Ohio_Cane

Herbie, if we get Carter, the secondary for Miami is done for this year.

UpNorthCane27

I think we definatley land......

Grace
Thomas
kirkland
Bain
T.Williams
Sheritt
and Hargreaves as a surprise

UpNorthCane27

Ohio you dont think that if Hargreaves wants in we wnt get him in? i think Carter is in also, but at the end hargreaves becomes part of this class. He's just waiting to see the product on the field.

herbieibis

Ohio, We couldn't turn Hargreaves down, even if we get Carter. I believe, someone told me that Hargreaves was a lock to us, when I mention on a previous post, that I thought he would be a Gator.

*******************************************

Up....normally I would agree with you but here is why I am a little worried about this story. If you are familiar with Bill King, he is someone who probably knows more about college football than most of us combined. Anyway, before he worked for 24/7, he was with Rivals for many years. When the Miami story first broke, I heard him say that Yahoo does a VERY GOOD job when it somes to this stuff and if there is a story, they will find it.

Yahoo is the one that broke the USC / Reggie Bush story and a few others as well and have been spot on each time. I just hope that is not the case with Al Golden.....

UpNorthCane27

Understanding raizecane and i def see what yoru saying......but was it "hackjob" charles robinson who broke the USC story? idk who it was but i doubt it was robinson his initial story on UM has faltered and i feel he needed a lil boost of publicity.

but your right raize, i trust godlen and hope he didnt have any knowledge of it.

Ohio_Cane

I'm going under the assumption Hargreaves is a Cane. That's what I meant by if Carter commits, the secondary is done.

VHIII will be a Cane.

raizecane

Up - it does appear that "hackjob" (that cracks me up) did break the story -

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=ys-bushprobe

UpNorthCane27

geeezzz raize lol i was hoping he didn't after i sent that post lol....

86Cane

Ohio...U sure know a lot about recruiting! LOL

Ohio_Cane

Golden may be inferring that they make take a transfer or 2 from PSU:

Miller-Degnan - Al Golden said he's not at 85 schollies now -- "I don’t think we’re at 85, we’re at 83 or 84'' (re PSU kids)

86Cane

UpNorth...when Hill said that U knew he was being paid.
