Can someone confirm the Derrick Griffin tweet I posted earlier?

We had a great time at the Chicago Coaches Dinner. We raised over $200K for the athletic department, honored Jonathan Vilma and had a chance to Q&A with Al Golden and the offensive staff.

On a personal note, meeting three of my favorite all-time 'Canes, Michael Irvin, Russell Maryland and Vilma, was an incredible opportunity. Also had a chance to talk to other great 'Canes in attendance including Ted Hendricks, Gino Torretta, Jarrett Payton and the newest Chicago Bear, D.J. Williams. Thought it was funny that Vilma made some steroid jokes to D.J. during the players Q&A.

With these 5 AM blogs consistently posting I can just see people setting their alarms, scrambling out of bed, racing to their computer and trying to be the FIRST to post a comment even before their first cup of coffee. That's dedication! LOL

Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis made more from the school in the 2011 season than Brian Kelly, the man who actually coached the Irish.

Weis, now the coach at Kansas, received a buyout payment of $2,054,744 from Notre Dame as part of the agreement for his 2009 firing, according to the Chicago Tribune, which cited federal tax documents the school provided the newspaper.

Weis received the same amount for the 2010 season -- in addition to the initial payment of $6,638,403 after his firing. And with the school scheduled for additional annual payments through December 2015, Weis could receive a total of $18,966,867 from Notre Dame, following four more payments of the same $2 million-plus figure from each of the past two seasons.

Kelly received $1,088,179 from the school from July 2011 to June 2012, but that likely does not present his total earnings.

YUP!
LMAO!

It's ridiculous what these colleges spend on football coaches salaries, and then hammer a kid who got a free lunch, dinner or boat ride... The hypocrisy is unreal.

My firsts are solely predicated on chance.

They're always welcome to stop playing their sport, turn in the athletic scholarship and take all the free lunches in the world they have coming their way without fear of eligibility revocation.

Except Shapiro only wanted to rub crotches with sweaty jocks so that wouldn't really get them much, back to the drawing board I suppose.

This is so true hypocrisy at it's best...

Miami coach Jim Morris is not with the baseball team today after he fell ill this morning. He is under the care of doctors, UM announced.

86Cane

DiMare to coach baseball team in next game.

FROM UM:

Head Miami baseball coach Jim Morris did not travel with the team to Saturday's Atlantic Coast Conference Championship finale against Clemson at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Assistant coach Gino DiMare will assume head coaching responsibilities for the game in place of Coach Morris, who fell ill this morning and is under the care of doctors.

No longer a fan until the U hires a younger, hungrier, smarter coach

I've lost all respect for you with that post.

So you're only a fan when your conditions are net.

Your not a fan at all and that's pathetic.

4-Real

Everyone doesn't enjoy losing canesfan!

Canesfan_1

Real fans hate losing more than phony fans, but real fans stick with it, and don't pick up their ball like little spoiled children and go home.

I'm a cane through good times and bad, it doesn't mean I don't criticize. If I were running things I'd let Morris go, but I don't get that choice. I do have the choice to be a cane, through good and bad.

HERE WE GO WITH AGAIN with the 1000th version of the "what is a real fan" definition? LOL

People's tastes change, because yours don't doesn't automatically make yours better.

roachcane77

I'm sorry to hear about Coach Morris, hope he gets well soon.

Hope our baseball team gets well soon too...

SmatCane

You can't change your taste of a team. You can appreciate other teams but anybody that switches teams is a bandwagon fan.

Canesteeler

If you pay your hard earned money to attend games and buy merchandise you are fan. Jim Morris has had a great career and it is now time for different leadership.

Everett Golson expelled from Notre damn for plagiarism on a final.

Lennay Kekua is suspected to be the actual author at this time.

(The punchline that keeps on giving.)

TonyCane

Canes can...you're right, to a point. But there are exceptions. By the way the Marlins run their franchise they should not have any fans. A team that deliberately gives no credence to winning by petpetually trading away all their players forfeits the right to having fans.
