Congratulations to Susan Miller Degnan! Her man is first team. The happy couple should be proud!

"Susan Miller Degnan ‏@smillerdegnan
#UM #Canes tackle Seantrel Henderson now the first-team RT all by himself. New depth chart out."

This game is even more important than last week.

1. Becoming bowl eligible with USF and Duke on the horizon.

2. Exceeding expectations.

3. Most importantly, we haven't beaten UVA since 2009. Motivation enough?

WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE!!!

Wow, for the first time since 2005 we control our own ACC destiny this late in the season. What a Jbo the coaching staff has done with this youthful team! I am very excited about the rest of the season and beyond! I am becoming a true believer in the "Golden Process" this guy has it...

FINISH STRONG CANES'!!!!

Having a chance to play for the ACC Championship without beating a conference team that has a winning conference record gives me confidence Al has some mojo none of us are aware of.
I'm thrilled we are talking about winning the Coastal and it's November and not June.

Having a shot at 8-4 with this defense is remarkable.
I haven't seen one kid quit in a game this year, by the time they are all jrs and seniors we will have seen "the former culture" changed completely.

I sleep a little better at night knowing I had a small hand in irritating Kyle Wright

Teddy Bridgewater is way fun to watch play.

That is my point. And when you add the fact that Sweater Vest knew and covered up the infractions, that is totally different than our situation. Shannon banned the lying, ponzi schemer from the program, and Hurtt (if he ignored his former boss) was insubordinate and should be sanctioned, especially when he ends up with Teddy Bridgewater.

If past Canes players DID violate the rules, then you simply forfeit past victories during those past seasons. Couple that with a bowl ban, then I think any additional penalties imposed on these current Canes (who already sufferred through one bowl ban) are unfair and unwarranted.

Golden should just keep his team focused, don't allow this bowl-ban talk to become a distraction, stay focused, win-out, close the season strong, attract new recruits, build fan support and show his players how to hold their chin up and become winners on the football field.

Soup, re your above post on Morris:

1. Yup!
2. Couldn't agree more!
3. Check!

laquinton

Willie is there a link to that ? I mean the acc saying we have to give up both not one mainly being the conference game. Eff the bowl game. Last year they got bigger and stronger and more time to practice before break. That's some bull

TonyCane


Another thing we should be worried about is the players on the team we could lose. No way 3 or 4 year bowl bans but 1 or 2 years we lose Juniors and seniors. Golden is a great coach tho always texting players and giving them advice or just saying hello like he does goes along way. Go canes beat Uva and win out

Posted by: laquinton | November 04, 2012 at 02:53 PM

Laquinton, here is where playing freshmen and sophmores comes to our advantage. If the core of our team is freshmen and sophmores - and roster wise we are top-heavy with 1st and 2nd year players - the effect of transfers by juniors and seniors will be minimal.

I see it the same way you do, I believe if you are a convicted liar and you took millions from innocent people and ruined lives you shouldn't have the right to say anything about anybody and no one should be listening to your stories.

But I don't think outside people and the NCAA see it this way

And I never heard anyone bring up former players involvement in the osu case????

Compelling story's but nothing is set yet. Play in the championship game if possible but take the bowl ban. It must be taking them alot longer than anybody expected because they either have testimonys from bitter players ir recruits who didn't get in. K.wright, a.debose comes to mind. . No other former player will talk. . And remember shapiro is a ponzi schemer so this is how he made his millions of lying and making himself to be a honest man bit he always had bad intentions. . This reminds me of a case in court where they keep filing for more time because they need solid evidence more than what they have. Play the game take the bowl ban. Another thing we should be worried about is the players on the team we could lose. No way 3 or 4 year bowl bans but 1 or 2 years we lose Juniors and seniors.

OGV,

You might be right, but i don't know. Some schools don't have conference title games so I don't see how it wouldn't count for two bans

orange 'n green in the vein

When you say, 'bowl ban,' you are really referring to the act of banning a team from postseason competition Willie. You can only self or have imposed on you that restriction once a year since there's only one postseason available to participate in, not multiple ones in a year.

Also, don't discount the fact that the ACC popped the cork on conference expansion/realignment just under a decade ago to make a FSU/UM rematch for a championship decided on the field a yearly possibility and finally being in the position to be able to market that attraction is going to increase the league pressure for UM to hold up its end of the bargain for the good of the other 10 or 12 (depending on if you want to count Pitt/'Cuse already or not) institutions when it comes to TV rights negotiations.

C'mon man enough with the WORST case scenarios. If it happens (NOT likely) then it happens but to even think it or to sit around all day just talking about it or even worse wishing for it is just wrong. Be positive it will not cost U anything.

Posted by: 86Cane | November 04, 2012 at 10:31 AM


86, you're right. TrollAlert, no problem. I think whenever a Shapiro-related story comes out that points to a near conclusion I start to worry and think about the worst case scenario. It doesn't help that I was nearly right on the scope of Penn State's punishment. I love this school and program as much as all of you here, don't want to see anything like that happen.

But whether anyone here calls out what punishment may or may not come doesn't really help. And worrying about it doesn't change anything by one iota.

orange 'n green in the vein

Willie, OSU involved that many active players, comparable to UM's number of active players. Many more sucknuts were implicated with the drug traffickers tat shop and don't forget the fact that Tressel had the smoking gun emails showing he was signing off that there where no violations when he had been informed in fact there were. When you say 2-3 more bowl bans you're saying, "Just less than allowing and condoning child rape to protect your football program to just as much punishment for the same."

WWIN

OGV, are you 100% sure about this??????

You don't get to count the ACCCG and the bowl as a two different postseason bans guys.

j.w.

Agree, 100% OGV.

WWIN

To be honest we can't compare our case to psu or osu

Osu had 3-5 players involved to our 70+

Psu was not a NCAA case really, but they stuck their ¢2 in it and did something that they NEVER did before. Psu broke federal laws not NCAA laws.

Also remember that OUTSIDE people HATE us, and players and coaches have talked

Something to consider:

If the Canes beat UVA and Duke loses to Ga. Tech...

...the result of the UM/Duke game is irrelevant. UM goes to the ACC title game as it holds tiebreakers over Ga. Tech and Virginia Tech.

BEAT UVA!

Posted by: LB | November 04, 2012 at 01:25 PM

Great point. I would still like to see the Canes finish strong and win games they are supposed to win to finish the season strong and dominate the Coastal Division. This also sends a message to current Canes players, potential recruits and fans that Golden is building something special.

Although I am happy with the first ever Coastal Division championship, I would hate to see the Canes stumble and look mediocre as they finish the season.

orange 'n green in the vein

You don't get to count the ACCCG and the bowl as a two different postseason bans guys. It's disqualifying yourself from post season play, you can only do that once a year no matter how many hours of football game time you don't end up playing that you otherwise would have. Play the title game, cut some schollys and vigorously defend your programs (which actually is going to end up being mostly basketball when this thing comes down I'm guessing, the Jones payment allegation is the major one, Turf Face's romantic getaway with his lover Nevin is probably as big as it will get proven in regards to football) and I think UM can win a rematch with FSU even if they don't try to completely hand over the game again if D'No will ratchet up the press man CB play.

WWIN

Also the opportunity is perfect for us this year if we win out. We have the opportunity to take two bans in one year to go along wit the one from last year. IMO the NCAA won't give us more than one more bowl ban if they do give us one. If we don't take the bans I think they will hit us wit 2-3 more

pbcfrcane13

Sarasota I agree 100%. If we make it we have to turn it down. Like I said earlier that will show the NCAA that we have taken a 3 game postseason ban. I would think that they would not hit us with anymore bowl bans just schollys and probation. Lets get this over with now with this young team and get ready for the next two years where we will hopefully start to make our climb back to the top! Plus if we take it now and we do not get anymore bowl bans we can not lose players without them having to sit.

86Cane

GO CANES, GO FISH!!!

WWIN

I would hope if we qualify for the acc chip skipping that and s bowl with last year ban would be enough. That's 3 post season games we skipped. Take our medicine now our well regret it next year. When we could be playing for more important things.

Totally agree, that's what I've been saying for the last month. Your post before this one was right on point too.

86Cane

Frum smoked root.

Man that was some good stuff!

Sarasota 'cane

You have to take the post season lump now! We are not ready to knock off FSU and playing that game is going to piss off the NCAA to no end. We may very well have 2 more bowl bans looming as it is so " kicking this can" down the road for an additional 2 years would be a disaster!
If the school takes this course then you can guarantee that we would lose a few juniors and seniors in addition to the scholarship players that we are already likely to lose. And for what? So we can go to Charlotte as a 4 loss representative of the Coastal Division? If UNC wasn't already on probation we wouldn't even be eligible!
Our lumps are going to be severe given the coaching staff involvement. It's no longer UM's word against a convicted felon's word. It's been widely reported that players, coaches, and other members of UM's athletic department have already corroborated many of Shapiro's allegations.
It is my opinion that we need to show the NCAA that we take these allegations seriously and that we need to take as much of our punishment that we can sooner rather than later. Pumping our chests at being a 4 loss Coastal Division Champion shows just how far we are from where we are trying to get to!
P.S. I hope that we can support Donna Shalala and the entire administration with whatever decision they choose. They are in a "no win" situation with either choice they make. I think she'll choose sooner rather than later, but you never know what kind of pressure she is under to rack up some hollow victory now to appease some high rolling booster(s). Only time will tell.

Go 'canes!

BigWindyCane1

The Canes are favored in their last 3 games, and they should win out and win the first-ever ACC Coastal Division Championship and play in their first-ever ACC-CG. If they win, it will show that Golden knows how to keep his team focused and prepared (unlike prior coaches). That accomplishment will be a barometer on how far Golden has taken the Canes.

Golden has already accomplished something that no other Canes coach has done since entering the ACC - beat GT and VT in the same season. Coker and Shannon never beat the Hokies and the Yellow Jackets in the same season.
2011 - beat GT, lost to VT
2010 - beat GT, lost to VT
2009 - beat GT, lost to VT
2008 - lost to GT, beat VT
2007 - lost to GT, lost to VT
2006 - lost to GT, lost to VT
2005 - lost to GT, beat VT
2004 -beat GT, lost to VT
Virginia Tech wins Coastal - 2005, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011
Georgia Tech wins Coastal - 2006, 2009

Beating the established champions is how you show progress and that is how you win a Division - by beating the teams that have won your Division for 8 straight years. That shows progress, and probably puts Golden a little ahead of schedule by building this program his (the right) way.

Tony -

3 year bowl ban? Bro, Penn State got a 4 year bowl ban for covering up the RAPE of children from the president down! NO MORE BOWL BANS, NCAA WANTS SCHOLARSHIPS!!

Ken roberts

It,s probably time for the ACC revenue sharing agreement to be published on thisblog. This is a public contract between the ACC and the schools, and can be obtained via afreedon of information request to any public school.

I had a copy in 1992' but t hat would be out-of-date money wise now.

Basically the ACC gets all the bowl money and etends an expense allwnce to theschools. When maryland wentto the OB against UF they got $1million expense. They took everybody in the state and lost money.

The ACC guarantees the ticket minimums, and this comes out of the gross.

Get the full agreement to see the contribution details from home football and home basketball.

TrollAlert aka Tbutch

Please keep up.

The NCAA's supposed philosophy now is leaning towards punishing perpretators (ie coaches) more than schools/athletes. With show cause and so forth. Even bans on employment. Hurtt and others might be in for a world of Hurtt. Pun intended.

So what is your point? That the school gets hammered? Maybe or maybe not. Quoting Stalin wins you no points from me, comrade.

orange 'n green in the vein

Windy does bring up some good comparison points between the cases but it's also true that no two infractions sentences are the same. Just lop off six schollys preemptively and stand tall before the committee. Personally, I view this as still a future issue that shouldn't even be a fan worry right now when we've got much more important worries right in front of us, like that trip to Charlottesville with a suddenly frisky Wahoo squad with a chance to finally eliminate them from the division race, beating Duke, in football, to win possibly the worst division in college football by finishing behind a team we should have beat anyway. Not to mention that HUGE 'rivalry' game with that team from Tampa that's still on the schedule.

nemo2002

Unfortunately, others on the UM coaching staff were clearly involved, most notably Shannon's recruiting coordinator, Clint Hurtt. That's not good. Moreover, to paraphrase Joseph Stalin, "quantity has a quality all it's own." And the body count of NCAA infractions is potentially huge.

TrollAlert aka Tbutch

Sorry for the insults. To put it in a nicer way, I thought those suggested punishments were way farfetched and unrealistic. Like he end of the world.

Big Windy makes a lot more sense. Of course the idiots at the NCAA could possibly go harder on us than OSU, but not like this Tony said. All I can do is keep my fingers crossed. But you can also make an argument that they are going to be lenient too. Nobody knows.

BigWindyCane1

I am not sure that the Canes will get any additional harsh punishments. For example, why should the Canes get more harsher penalties than OSU? Let's compare:

-The Canes graduate their players and OSU does not. the sweater vest lied to NCAA investigators.

-Prior to this year, OSU never took a self-imposed bowl ban, but UM did.

-Last year, some of the OSU players were suspended, they played and lost to a 6-6 Gator team last year. The Canes had the same record and chose to take a bowl ban.

-the NCAA imposed a bowl ban on OSU this year because they refused to do it last year under similar circumstances that UM faced.

- The major source of the allegations, Shapiro, is a convicted felon, with an axe to grind and books to sell.

-Shannon banned Shapiro from the program, and Shapiro was in jail by the time Golden took the job.

-The Canes players were punished with suspensions last year and the Canes did not compete in a bowl last year.

Any additional pushinshment would be totally unfair.

orange 'n green in the vein

And I should add, I even agree with your premise that even being made an example of (which Emerett won't even be on the infractions board for our case unlike the unprecedented summary judgement he delivered for Pedo-State where he went all Terminator) doesn't mean UM gets more than PSU and the scandals aren't comparable in scope so the punishments won't be either.

86Cane

I do wonder, if the NCAA wants to make an example of us, do they stop at 4 years? Could a 5 + year ban be in the offing? Or even an "indefinite" bowl ban, subject to a "carefully considered" review every four to five years?

Posted by: Tonycane | November 04, 2012 at 09:53 AM

Tony...U know I like your posts about the star gazing and scoring stats but what is it about you that insists on predicting or wanting to believe in what amounts to nuclear armageddon for the Hurricanes program?

Do U stay up all night just wondering if the Sun will suddenly implode and stop shining tomorrow?

Do U think about the earth being hit by an asteroid next week and ending all life as we know it?

Do you think that the recent meningitis outbreak due to injections is going to mutate and then be spread from person to person and half of the US population will die before Christmas?

C'mon man enough with the WORST case scenarios. If it happens (NOT likely) then it happens but to even think it or to sit around all day just talking about it or even worse wishing for it is just wrong. Be positive it will not cost U anything.

CGNC

Tony I think if we self-impose it has to be before the ACCCG but I think we can still play in the ACCCG game?

Tonycane

Ageed, pbcfrcane. I expect a minimum three year bowl ban from the NCAA, which hopefully becomes a one year ban if we self-impose again. And a four year ban (subtracting the bans we self impose) is a distinct possibility.

Realistically, I think that any acc rematch against fsu will end in a loss this year. So part of me thinks that we may as well go the game, knowing that in all probability we will lose, and then self impose our bowl ban after.

I do wonder, if the NCAA wants to make an example of us, do they stop at 4 years? Could a 5 + year ban be in the offing? Or even an "indefinite" bowl ban, subject to a "carefully considered" review every four to five years?

If you read Barry jackdons article you have to skip it. If you UM is worried that Emmert mite make an example of us than that means were looking at another 2 bowl bans. If you don't skip this year. That means next year seniors and juniors can all leave the team. Guys like chick perryman morris hurns all our online Williams. You can't risk it to go get beat by FSU and play in a crap bowl. Again look at Ohio state wanted to play in the crap gator bowl and because of that they have taken themselves out of the national title picture....for what the gator bowl really?

CGNC...I doubt it. Next year we will prolly be 10-2 and zip right past 9-3 for a few more years. At least I hope so and I'd be totally OK with that!

86Cane

Rock...yes Robey is from nearby in Polk County but is listed at 5-7 and 165. He doesn't fit the mold at UM.

The other players from FL on the USC roster are from Tampa, Daytona and TWO from Tallahassee. I guess that means that the great five star recruiter at FSU "missed" on those two huh?

Like I have said 100 times on here losing to #2 KSU, #4 ND and #10 FSU has no shame for this Canes team this year all things considered. The only loss that is completely unacceptable was UNC.

KSU looks unbeatable except maybe by 'Bama in the NC game. Klein will win the Heisman.

Pitt showed that ND is VERY beatable and had Dorsett not dropped the 7 TD passes early in that game then who knows?

FSU tried to give us the game in the first half but we could not take it. NCST beat them and we should have too.

The UNC game just stunk from all aspects of the game. The team was flat, the coaching was poor and the execution was non-existent.

Had we beat UNC we would be 6-3 and looking at a top 25 ranking IF we can finish the season with three wins over UVA, USF and Duke, all very winnable games. Plus my 9-3 prediction would have been spot on. LOL

With limited reps, Tyriq McCord leads UM in sacks with 3.0. McCord needs to see more snaps, especially in passing situations.

Bush still has some strides to make in terms of communication, understanding what is going on, recognizing plays and leading the defense, but the talent is there to make plays. Tracy Howard is starting to play really well.

The thing you look for with the young players is progress, and that is what the young players are showing under Golden. You see gradual progress across the board, and if that continues, the Canes can be very good.

The defense is not that good, but it is getting better. With all the young talent, the future is bright.

I guess this is why fans shouldn't trash players

Wright – through his father – declined to respond when I asked whether he spoke to the NCAA. A UM person said Wright was unhappy when he left UM because of what he perceived as harsh fan treatment.

From Andy Bitter

Miami officials will only take action once Miami becomes bowl eligible, a similar tack it took last year when it self-imposed a bowl ban in Al Golden‘s first year. The decision was made by university leaders, athletic administrators and outside counsel, without input from Golden.

But the Hurricanes were 3-5 in the league and in fourth place of the division. This year, they could make their first appearance in the ACC championship game and have a shot at playing in a BCS bowl, in their home stadium no less.

Then again, Miami has four losses already this season with a roster made up mostly of underclassmen. Would the school rather bite the bullet this year in hopes of keeping future postseason hopes alive, when it might be capable of accomplishing more in the postseason, perhaps even in a nationally relevant game?

It’d be an odd move, but take the case of Ohio State, which in the face of NCAA sanctions chose not to self-impose a bowl ban last year when it finished the regular season 6-6 and lost to Florida in the Gator Bowl. The NCAA did it for them this year. Now, the Buckeyes are 9-0 in Urban Meyer‘s first season, with no hopes of winning the Big Ten or playing in the national title game.

If Miami does self-impose a bowl ban, amazingly it would keep Virginia Tech alive in the Coastal race.

Barry Jackson gives an update on the sanctions, self-imposed bans, etc:

Summary: Shalala will make the final call. If we make it to the ACC title game, trustees who spoke to Jackson don't think we'll impose a ban- bad for ACC, and playing in it would be "the right thing" per the source. And it would be yanking the prize that Golden has dangled in front of the players all year. Shalala could go either way, but the trustee doesn't see how she could say no bowl. Recruits testimony was damaging, Kyle Wright likely squealed, NCAA is finished but for internal review, NOI coming in late Nov. or early Dec., response time 3 months after, and punishment handed down 7 months from NOI.

CR, he might be slightly better than Lane Kiffin there. Is that what they meant?

I think they said something about His personality was a fit for the NFL.

That might be the only thing dumber than his risk taking.

Yeah, I actually heard somebody say that He was NFL material...whatever.

Two of those don't belong with the overrated dunce that is Les Miles, Willie.

Les Miles, easily the worst coach to ever win a national title.

Coker is 1st place, Miles is 2nd, Meyer is 3rd

orange 'n green in the vein

CR, Miles gets away with his stupid gambles once every four years so he keeps doing it despite the fact that the other 75% of the time it blows up in his face. But he once lost to Kentucky and Arkansas in the same year and still finished #1 so he's going to get promoted as one of the best in the biz. That might be the only thing dumber than his risk taking.

raize, you sound like you're Golden's agent looking for another .500 extension and raise.

raizecane

so 3 out of our 4 losses are to teams that will be in the top 10 after tomorrow....I guess thats worth something, right?
