No reason to hit a kid if he ain't yours. Correct the issue in other ways. I'm not saying its the worst thing in the world, but that kind of teaching is unacceptable now. They don't even do that in bootcamp any more.

Matter of fact, Cypress lost what...38-14? The entire team should've lined up and SLAPPED HIS ASS! LMAO!

Reminds me of an e-mail I got awhile back:

"A lot of the guys complaining about not having Joe Montana don't exactly see Bill Walsh when they look in the mirror."

Sports for a lot of them are all about building the other guy's character. As soon as it's time to build their own character, then it's not nearly as much fun."

I hear ya' VA Cane, BUT!, just because they did it in your time, doesn't make it right. Judging by the way the kid reacted, and looked at Him, even He was a lil' shocked that His coach did that...which leads me to the conclusion that Guandolo never did that before. I used to coach young people, and one thing I always told myself..."If I don't do it in practice, I won't do it in a game!"..."If I don't say it in practice, I won't say it in a game!" IOWs, be YOURSELF!...these kids know when you're actin' PHONY!

WESTON, Fla. -

Cypress Bay head football coach Mark Guandolo has been suspended for two weeks following an incident which saw him hitting one of his players on national television. In a time out during Cypress Bay's game vs. American Heritage on Sunday, ESPN cameras caught Guandolo punching the head of quarterback Lucas Tellefsen with the heel of the palm of his hand.

Guandolo has been suspended from his position as a physical education teacher for three days and two weeks from all school athletic activities.

"I expect every staff member to adhere to the highest professional standards in every aspect of their interactions with our students,” wrote Broward Schools Superintendent Robert W. Runcie in a statement on Monday.

Most spectators at the game were oblivious to what happened, but were stunned when Local 10 showed them the video that had gone viral.

One student said, “That was just wrong in my opinion.”

When asked if it bothered her, student Alice Shatt said “Yeah. I mean, they treat animals like that. They don’t treat football players like that. I mean, that’s their coach. You don’t want to get hit by your coach.”

This video raises the question: Is this fair discipline for a bad play, or did the coach go too far?

“That’s a football play, you know. He could've slapped him across the helmet for a good play. We would have never known," said football fan Tavares McBurrows.

“Unnecessary. Really unnecessary," said one parent, Marie Nirenburg.

Don't need any more ME guys.....that's what gets you beat. Need TEAM guys which is what we have.

Just an update on my charges 7th and 8th graders.....we beat the JV team that tied for district title last year; they had a decent amount of rising sophs....not so big a deal right? 42-0 is kinda big. My line really whipped them on both fronts....my guys execute well in all phases I was shocked we crushed them...know some of them...they have gotten away from my kind of ball.....the coaches were a riot....I just told them hey we just had some breaks....no we just whipped AZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A good coach is all it takes. A bad coach, can set you back years.

You are on it Dude!!!!

2 bad coaches set you back light years....Clappy and Onionhead did just that. Its a fact that is plain to see. Clappy just was not head coach material, and it is hard to say he won a title on his coaching. Onion is bitter about a lot of things; yes he had a hard life. He had an attitude and people problem, and he was not HC either. I liked Clappy better than RS....Randy did not like anybody, hell he hated the fans, media, HS coaches, players....and now you know he hates UM and wants the U to fail. He is a sad lonely bitter man but he did not have what it takes at this level. I hope he does well in the game.

We are off of life support, and breathing on our own again. AG is not the second coming, but a welcome change, fresh and not afraid to build while going through pains. We will have a good year...no NC, no undefeated season......but good....and I hope I am wrong about the season, and we do go all the way!!!

Not giving Henderson the start makes sense. He's so physically gifted, he doesn't have to push himself to start. So Golden pushes him anyway.

It isn't that Susan's man isn't good, it's that Feliciano is really achieving. Maybe Susan could hold off on late night tiddly-winks? #Sutrel

Clements wants to finish his career on a high note. BAD.

Stacy Coley and Artie Burns are going to make some noise.

Shayon Green is the best defensive lineman we have, and the defensive end competition is the best it's been in the Golden era.

The linebacker depth still isn't good, but it's better than what it was a couple of months ago.

We're good at corner.

Deon Bush is still hurt.

My final advice, these 6weeks on the bench will be brutal, but once she comes off the injured reserved list you better strap up like Matt Dillon cuz she gon be SUPER DUPER fertile. Trust me, you DO NOT wanna have that second one back to back. My son was born October 6 then my daughter was born September 24, so I'm speaking from experience lol. Good luck

The question is blunt because there is no other way to ask. Miami is not a place where the subject should be tiptoed around, anyway.

The question to coach Al Golden: "Shouldn't Miami, given its history, its tradition and its location, be a program that wins at least 10 games every single season?"

Golden shoots right back: "In terms of what?"

The question is repeated nearly word-for-word.

"You mean once we stabilize and move forward?" he asked. "Absolutely. That's why I chose the University of Miami and that's why I stayed at the University of Miami. … I think it's fair to say that the standards are high at the University of Miami for sure."

It is also fair to say that Miami has failed to meet those standards for years now, much to the frustration of a proud fan base and an even prouder network of alumni -- players who helped bring the program back from the brink of devastation.

Miami, of course, is not the only big-name program that has fallen on hard times in recent years. Nebraska has. Tennessee has. Their championship droughts have lasted longer. But those two programs never won five national titles over a 20-year period plus playing for five more championships along the way. Those two programs are not in natural recruiting hot spots, where coaches trip over top high school talent without going very far.

Those two programs have not churned out NFL draft picks at the rate Miami has over the past 20 years, either. For the swaggering, swashbuckling, in-your-face Hurricanes, the standards they set and the havoc they wreaked have been too much for even them to reach.

Consider that Miami has yet to play for an ACC championship, after dominating its previous conference, the Big East. Its men's basketball team, living in the long football shadow, won a league title before its gridiron counterpart. Perhaps more important, its football recruiting classes have consistently yielded top-15 rankings over the past eight years, yet many of its high-end prospects failed to pan out. Blame can be spread, save for one place. The recent downslide has little to do with the ongoing NCAA investigation. Yes, that investigation has clouded most of Golden's tenure in Coral Gables. Yes, Miami had to self-impose two postseason bans, including one that cost it a spot in the ACC title game.

But the downturn began before then. Way before then.

In fact, it started after Miami made four straight BCS appearances between 2000-03. Miami has not won 10 or more games since 2003 and hasn't had an All-American since 2005. But every year, the expectations remain the same, only setting up the annual letdown.

"To speak honestly, going to the University of Miami nowadays, it's understanding that where you are going comes with the full expectation you want to win a national championship year in and year out," said Texans center Chris Myers, a freshman on the 2001 national championship team.

Just look at the windscreens that surround the new practice field. They feature photos of former Miami All-Americans. And pictures of all five championship rings. Those championship trophies are now on display for the players to see every time they walk into their new athletics facility. They are meant to serve as reminders of the past, of what can be accomplished here.

Duke made #3 on HD list..

No. 3. Duke Johnson, RB, Miami

Previous ranking: No. 11

Making the case for Johnson: He had what was arguably the greatest freshman season in school history. Still need more? Johnson, who was named the ACC’s overall and offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, was one of the ACC’s most electric kick returners, and he set the school single-season record with 892 kick return yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a freshman-record 947 yards and 10 touchdowns. His 2,060 all-purpose yards were the second-most in program history.

Johnson played in all 12 games last year and made five starts. He also had six games with 200-plus all-purpose yards and four 100-yard rushing games. He was named the ACC’s Rookie of the Week a league-best five-times. It’s possible Johnson could be even better this fall, as all five starters return on the offensive line, and the Canes have one of the best quarterbacks in the country in Stephen Morris.

More Tito...

2014 Dwyer (Fla.) receiver Johhnie Dixon was part of a deflating 44-13 loss to Miami Central on Saturday night which now makes him believe they need to put in more focus during the week.

“We gotta get more focused in practice, we weren’t mentally prepared. We have to practice way more harder and come in with more intensity.”

Dixon still feels positive for the rest of the season as his team looks to make a deep playoff run and is trying to take it one game at a time.

“We’re looking at everyone, I mean this was a wake up call for the season. Mark Kelly our D-linemen, he’s a clown, but after this game he’s focused now I can tell.”

The 5’11 195 pound receiver has a top 3 of Miami, Alabama and Ohio State and recently got a chance to see the Hurricanes scrimmage and hang out with the coaches.

“It went great, met a lot of commits, a lot of great players. I talked to a couple of the current players and it was good. I talked to Herb (Waters), Duke (Johnson), Stacy (Coley) and Malcolm (Lewis). They were telling me that the whole team is family.”

While there, he also got the chance to speak with the coaches who are doing what they can to try and get Dixon on board.

“The same old, that they want me to commit and they want me to be apart of the team.”

Visits are going to be paramount in Dixon’s decision as he has set up two already for Alabama and Ohio State.

“I’m going to Alabama versus LSU and then also Ohio State versus Wisconsin.”

The Dwyer receiver is currently unsure whether Miami will get a visit, considering he’s visited so many times already.

“Not sure yet, I mean I probably won’t have to because I already know the place so well with the campus and the coaches.”

Tito workin..

2014 Miami Central (Fla.) running back Dalvin Cook helped secure the 44-13 win over Dwyer with two touchdowns. Now the focus turns to next week when the Rockets take on American Heritage.

“We know what we are capable of doing, we just have to limit the flags and we still have to execute and just try to keep the refs out of the way of our game.”

Cook is excited to play against not only another top ranked team, but matched up against one of the top running backs in the nation in Sony Michel.

“It just brings a rush to me and tells me I need to bring my A game, but I know I have to step it up for next week and try to make some plays.”

The Florida commitment remains strong in his pledge to the gators and is excited to watch them this season.

“I’m solid with Florida right now.”

The 6’0 210 pound running back is looking to attend as many home games for Florida as he can, but is also looking to make some visits to other schools.

Ariz workin...

I was on-hand today for the ESPN Kickoff double-header of University School-Homestead and Cypress Bay-American Heritage. University won the first game 41-21, while American Heritage won 38-14. Here are some observations from today's action.


Top Performers
1. 2014 University School WR Chris Taylor (Duke)
The Duke commitment has flown under-the-radar, but if he plays like this the rest of the season, there could be some bigger programs after him. Taylor hauled in three touchdown receptions on the day. He is a very smooth route runner who will be able to catch a lot of balls in Duke’s offense.

2. 2014 American Heritage ATH Isaiah McKenzie
McKenzie would have been number one on this list if not for two of his touchdowns being called back. I have mentioned McKenzie since last season as a dynamic playmaker who has enough versatility to affect the game in all three phases. He had two punt return touchdowns called back because of penalty, but you could see his explosiveness on display in both instances. He also took a screen pass on the last play of the half for a 60-yard touchdown. McKenzie is a Notre Dame lean.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m5kQfeg9w4o

3. 2015 Homestead ATH Devonte Davis
Davis is the name on this list that people know the least about. I had mentioned him back in the summer after watching him perform with the tight ends at an Al Golden football camp, but the plays he made today were at the cornerback position. Davis showed great ball skills on the two picks and anticipated the first one perfectly. He also made a couple of catches on the offensive side of the ball. I will be interested to see how Davis performs the rest of the season. He is physical enough to play safety as well.

4. 2014 American Heritage RB Sony Michel (Georgia)
Michel showed flashes of being back to his pre-ACL injury self. He scored twice and the second touchdown showed why he is such a freak. He broke through the line of scrimmage and then made a vicious cut on a defender to burst into the open field. When comparing him to Dalvin Cook and Joseph Yearby, Michel has more of a power component to his game. Here is the referenced run:

5. 2014 American Heritage CB Juwan Dowels (Northern Illinois)
Dowels doesn’t receive the hype that his teammate Tarvarus McFadden receives, but he showed today that he will make quarterbacks pay if they test him. Dowels was solid in coverage all day long and made a nice interception in tight coverage along the sideline.

Is it possible that McCord doesn't have 1 set position, thus no spot? lol
