From 247 Sports:

WR Austin Roberts of Indiana is visiting Miami today. His father, Alfredo Roberts, is tight ends coach with the Colts. More importantly, he played at Miami from 1983-1987 and was a member of two national championship teams.

The whole truth about how corrupted the NCAA has been investigating the University of Miami and how they wanted to hammer UM at any cost with a Nevin Shapiro who only wants revenge. Shapiro the worst liar on the planet is in prison for 20 years for frauding business people and investors in the amount of $930 million.

Emmert held a 45-minute news conference Thursday during the Final Four that turned contentious at times. In fact, he fired a parting shot at a reporter: "I know you're disappointed, but I'm still here."

In particular, the NCAA has come under fire for violating its own policies while investigating the scandal involving a Miami booster. Emmert says the NCAA acknowledged its mistakes and made the necessary changes.

In addition, Emmert dismissed a USA Today story that accuses him of shirking responsibility for major problems and scandals at Connecticut, LSU and Montana State under his watch.

You want to know more why Mark Emmert has such a poor judgement? Listen to this interview from today...If he is not fired from the NCAA i wonder what more it will take...

From ESPN Following the Auburn story...

How widespread do you believe bribing players and changing grades are in college football?

58% Very widespread
36% Somewhat widespread
6% Not widespread

So is The Pimp going to put his ACC or AP National COTY award in his office and send the other one to the AD trophy case for recruiting purposes?

And this means that Al's finally going to hide that laughable 2009 MAC COTY trophy because it's now even that much more of an unfunny joke by comparison, right? Not even Al can be that thickheaded on this, can he? I mean in the classic UM tradition of award trophy prestige, he should be really using it as only a step ladder already but you just know he can't bring himself to let go of it since it's basically all his college roommate has to point to as to why he has a job still, well that and that Skype account of the 'wife.'

Listen to this interview from today, read between the lines...No more sanctions for Miami.

DORSEY TOPS UM HALL INDUCTEES: Champion QB Ken Dorsey and teammate Brett Romberg (both 1999-2002) head a list of seven latest UM Sports Hall of Fame inductees who'll be installed in a 45th annual ceremony April 11. Others are Ed Contreras (baseball, 1957-59); Bryan Gilooly (diving, 1994-98); Norm Parson (coach, 1972-2012); Don Soldinger (coach, 1984-88, '95-2006); and Jay Tessmer (baseball, 1994-95). Special congrats to Soldinger, whom I covered during the Jimmy Johnson years. Well deserved, Don.

Are you serious? Do you honestly feel that Al Golden has done nothing to improve the football team, repaired relationships with local coaches, completely turn the offense into one of the best in the country, same with special teams, all while under the most glaring witch hunt in the history of the NCAA?
The defense is one or two years from being on par with the other squads but there's nothing to suggest that Al is not working on fixing that as well. What do you know that Alonzo Highsmith can't grasp? You do know that Alonzo scouts talent for the Green Bay Packers, right?

13-11 = 54.1%. Done with a team that featured a Super Bowl champion, two record setting QB's, a plethora (7(!) who have cashed NFL pay, by my count, so far) of NFL caliber players, I would call that barely mediocre, but it was better than O_C's recruiting predictions this year! (you needled me while I was nearly dead from the flu, so it was owed to you)

49-20 = 71% ACC/AP National coach of the year, we'll see how many NBA caliber players he was left with to pull that one off in a few months other than Dequan Jones, if it's more than two this year making it three total, be surprised. I would call that a MIRACLE when done by a basketball coach at a football school. The rest of your rhetorical post is answered by that 54.1% figure and my opinion of the performance of a coach who gets his team to score more than the opposition that often of the time.

Look what dad did at Temple impresses Bill Cosby. Look what The Pimp did at Coral Gables impresses the nation.

Sarasota 'cane

You're done with the football team?? You post about them morning, noon, and night. The football team is likely going to trade places with the basketball team next year, is Larranega still going to be a "Pimp" if they are a mediocre ACC team for the next 2-3 years (which looks much more likely than your football predictions for next year)?

The guy who typed this insanity must have a racial gripe about the new HC replacing the old HC. its the only explanation for the lack of context and selective factoids provided.

"Auburn's good fortune: NCAA is an even bigger mess

http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/jeff-schultz/2013/apr/04/auburns-good-fortune-ncaa-bigger-mess-them/"

I won't pull the trigger on Auburn. However, three things stand out:

1. Yes, the NCAA is in an even bigger mess.
2. The piece was written by an Auburn alum (though perhaps scorned).
3. Muschamp's name is in the media. I have a feeling that when folks start digging, they'll find a lot more.

Sarasota 'cane

No personal attacks ogv, your rule not mine. There's not one credible analyst that has taken your position.

Again I think the football team is going to trade places with the basketball team this year. The question is do you feel Larranaga is still going to be a pimp if they have 2-3 mediocre ACC seasons? Will you attack him as well if he does?

Go 'canes!

OGV...I appreciate your perspective and many contributions here on the blog. But enough with the negativity already. It is really wearing thin, has been way overdone and is obviously starting to anger many here. I know U do it sometimes just to rile people up and draw them into the discussion but at this point we get it (ad nauseum).

Now let's move on to the positive side of life.

Thank U!
