I hope for that 225 pound kids sake he doesn't play. Linder will tee off on him. S. Carolina looks good. Ole Miss certainly cleaned up in recruiting. USC, not sure what to make of them so far. They look like pre Pete Carroll USC.

I think UM should win against UNC but they have not played well there recently, last time notwithstanding. Road team in that series has had a tough go of it, but of course, last two games has won.

Yeah, the DT who's listed at 6-2 225 made me LOL too on FAU.

Looked at the FAU roster and they are obviously a lot smaller than us at every position that matters. We need to really push them around.

Or he'll just wait until the Heels drop a TD pass in the end-zone to settle for three then have the safety take the wrong angle to house it from 3/4ths of the way from the end-zone, and now UNC is behind the eight ball.

That works for this decade's Spurrier too.

orange 'n green in the vein

No, no it's not Coke. Unless Fedora makes some astute adjustments here in the second half he's going to have trouble making up this two score deficit. I figure he's going to go hurry up to try and extend the game but they can't turn the ball over and you figure more passing attempts means more chances for Clowney to lower the boom on Renner.

Spurrier is going to draw them into creeping up the safeties and then go over the top in a repeat of the first drive at some point in the second half so UNC will have to get the ball back with a TO or two of their own to make up for that inevitability.

CoCane

It's not easy to put up quick points against SC's defense...

orange 'n green in the vein

They certainly didn't show up for the opening gun, but still plenty of time to get back into it for UNC. Fedora can put up points in a hurry too.

sass80

and as soon as i say that...Unc scores lol

Criminal-What happened with Manziel.

Yes, our case is different. The OSU players, the Dez Bryant situation, and there are tons of others where a player received something for their likeness in regards to their playing status with a University and got phucked by the NCAA.

The part of our situation that is insulting is the fact that, since they didn't have a story corroborated twice by a convicted felon....And our players did not have rich hot shot parents with a tough guy legal defense; it is a slap on the wrist?

Nothing about that makes sense. If the NCAA had nothing then there was no reasonable way for them to give a half game suspension.

If Manziel did nothing, there is no reasonable explanation for accepting any suspesion.

It is an even bigger slap in the face to educated individuals and non TAMU fans. If you are going to try and phuck us at least don't tell me it is apple pie and I'm eating dessert.

To play devil's advocate, there is a difference between Manziel and Cook. Manziel was accused of selling his autograph. There was no allegation of involvement by Texas A&M coaches or staff. Cook's allegation involved a Miami coach - thus the NCAA spent more resources and time.

That said, when you look at the cases that involve alleged impropriety on a program level - not individual like Manziel - it appears that there is a definitive double standard between Miami and almost anyone else.

Va Cane, until the strength of schedule actually matters in determining who makes the BCS (or playoff upcoming), teams will schedule non-conference patsies, if their overriding objective is to be NC.

There is a reason UF hasn't played an out of state non-conference game in decades.

If you got really penalized in the formula for not playing real teams, the schedule would change.

UMike

OGV, that is true. They made sure to let those OSU players play in the bowl game

UMike, that was a fantastic jiujitsu counter by junior Newton, wasn't it? "Duh, uh, I didn't know my dad shopped me around to SEC schools, so duh, uh, let me go get me some SEC title. Thnx, bye!"

VA Cane

I think you are right on the no holds barred $ OGV, that is where regulation would need to be monitored and regulated. I do not want to pay salaries, but I want these kids who need money to have it. Johnny Littleballs has $ from mommy and daddy...he is set. I think it can be done compared to the caveman rules we have now...you cannot even give a kid a shirt, cleats or a ride....lots of dumb shit!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

VA C, I'm all for getting rid of the cupcakes from schedules and I agree that writing a rulebook for a digital age instead of an agrarian one would be a major improvement in the bureaucracy that runs this whole show, but I think if you go no price barred for recruits like the major land grant powers would love to see, UM can't play in that field, heck they can barely play in the over-regulated field they exist in now in a lot of ways.

UMike, I didn't personally like The Don's thumbscrew turning letter, but I understand why she would do something like that in the situation she was in at the time. Is making someone suggest you go stick your next request for an interview where the sun don't shine one more time unreasonable in a thorough investigation? Not to me, especially when you have someone of little person stature waiving bank statements and receipts in your face raving about how many rule violations he was directly responsible for. Again, get mad at the traffic cops all you want but I find it misdirected, after-all Special K sure has moved on to bigger and better things and is showing how on top of everything he is at Lubbock so there's no reason to doubt his leadership in his previous stop after the fact is there? Oh. Wait.

Fc, look out, start agreeing with me here, next thing you know, somebody who never went a day to the college I did and who will talk major sh!t about a guy who contributed some substantial hardware to the trophy case in Coral Gables at the drop of a hat, while pumping up how awesome reptile baseball with not a single title is, will accuse you of personally not liking a football coach as he and his best friend field the worst defense in UM history and you mention they aren't very good at this game-day coaching thing apparently two years before it happens to play out on the field after you state that. Too bad you're not signed in to typepad, we could go back and pull up your Nostradamus impersonation posts from around the Sun Bowl if you were. I agree that Manziel can't survive on innate spidey-sense in the pocket much longer since he now is a target for the rest of his playing days. Who wants to be the guy who ended a Heisman's career is the question going into every game he steps on the field for now.

CR, YEAH BUT . . . no hands are supposed to be in ANY so it's tough for me to garner a lot of sympathy for those that couldn't resist.

UMike

In Cam Newtons case they even had proof his dad got money, but said since Cam had no knowledge of it, it was ok lol

Canesfan _1

Some people on here need to brush upon our case.

As just ONE example, DeQuan Jones' case and Manziel's are comparable. Similar amount of money alleged, and both involved a question of eligibility. Dequan misses 11 games as the NCAA takes its sweet time. Unlike Manziel, Dequan is COMPLETELY exonerated, and was found to NOT have violated any rules, while Manziel misses 30 minutes for an admission of rules violations.

Also, some of you need to check the NCAA's bylaws. They don't need direct testimony to act. They can use statements attributed and not made directly to them, as long as they can be verified as having been made, which the broker's statements are. The brokers unwillingness to speak with the NCAA are totally irrelevant, as they had in essence testified to the ESPN reporters.

Let's not let the NCAA off the hook. They definitely have multiple standards.

herbieibis

Now, that they got Johnny football cleared, maybe now they will once again worry about us and you better believe it will probably be before the Flo. game just to mess with our minds. The Herb can't stand the NCAA henchmen because they are like Gnats but we have nobody to blame but ourselves for getting into this predicament and being at their mercy. It sux but it's the truth. Those bastards hate us as it is and slow bleeding us is a way to get back at us.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | August 29, 2013 at 10:40 AM

YEAH BUT!...it was only one cookie jar.

VA Cane

In my world, I lobby for playing the best teams. I am playing Clover Hill and Beattie Weaver as 2 of my 8 reg season games....they were conference champs of the 2 divisions north of the river. I want to play the best and beat the best....therefore it makes me the best. I hate playing teams that are not so good; we use real vanilla stuff against them so we do not run up the score. I also set up 4 scrimmages before the season starts against the best 4 teams; makes me better.


I am very disappointed playing the shitty teams on our schedule; I want a big conference of the best 50 or so and you play only the best teams. I want to play Bama, OSU, Oregon, LSU, UF, FSU, Michigan, Ok, Nebraska, USC etc we might lose all those games but then we may win the m all....hell 12-0 and a playoff title would really solve this mythical NC talk....we have 5 titles....but they are all mythical just like everybody elses. Playoff system of top teams in top tier puts this mythical stuff to rest.....and they are just that myths when you start to think about it.

I am old school....when we won 2 straight HS titles, we played a good reg season and tough playoffs... blew out good teams 38 straight...on our way to 2 state titles. I want to always beat the best...its my way of proving you are the best!!!! JMO

Ftmcane

For once I agree with ogv. The brokers aren't speaking to the NCAA so what does Manziels attorneys do? They strike a deal for half a game and case closed. Even if the brokers do talk to the ncaa, im sure his attorneys made sure there would be no further punishment in case the brokers were sandbagging. He's gonna eventually burn a&m in one way or another anyway.

UMike

OGV, you have a point..BUT, even the former players that didn't want to talk they tried repeatedly to talk to. They put pressure on UM and UM even told players if they don't talk they aren't allowed back...where was all that pressure and bullying with Fairyball? That is my particular beef. To me it just seems the NCAA didn't TRY to find anything n Manziel but tried VERY hard to find everything and anything on Miami, even going as far as to say something was corroborated if the rat said it twice.

VA Cane

Good point OGV. I don't think it is particularly UM....my contention is that the NCAA has outlived its usefulness, and there has to be a modern approach to recruiting, money etc. I am not saying no rules, but progressive ideas. Not way left or right, but somewhere that is sensible for all.

The haves will always have, and some have nots may become semi haves (TCU, Boise, Utah etc) but face it those people do not have big time programs and never will. It is not about level playing field, it is about competition. There needs to be a top tier super conference with the big players....the rest stay in the other 3 divisions. You play only the best teams non of the lower teams...I hate playing FAUs of the world...they suck. Play all top tier opponents...I like the idea of VT-Bama, NC-SC, we should be playing UF not this rinky dink sandlot team this week. Get rid of FAU, SF and Savannah; play Ohio State, UCLA and ND in their place. That makes this so so schedule a mans schedule not 3 patsies to go along with some competition.

orange 'n green in the vein

Brokers didn't want to talk to the NCAA.

That's the difference. UM has a jailhouse snack that can't get any attention except by talking, so he talks. Brokers have a real business not a ponzi scheme, so they have better things to do than interview repeatedly from a prison cell with the amateur athletic traffic cops.

All this hand wringing by Miami fans is misdirected. Special K is where you should be dumping dirt on the grave of, not the NCAA, they'd be remiss not to interview those willing to talk. Plus, it ignores the fact that a bunch of barely average football teams got caught with their hands in the cookie jar, all the 'greats' at UM who are implicated were freshman on the last championship team, after that, a bunch of entitled believers of their own hype that never lived up to it. Like solar said YEARS ago now, you get caught speeding, you get mad about it, you go to court and you pay the fine anyway, he was 100% right.

Pete Ariz:

Thought this would be an interesting look at the roster.

**Using Rivals.com’s star system, here is the breakdown of Miami’s two-deep depth chart for the FAU game:

Offense
5-stars: 2 (Seantrel Henderson, Duke Johnson)
4-stars: 5 (Stacy Coley, Ereck Flowers, Brandon Linder, Shane McDermott, Eduardo Clements)
3-stars: 10 (Allen Hurns, Herb Waters, Malcolm Bunche, Jon Feliciano, Jared Wheeler, Clive Walford, Maurice Hagens, Stephen Morris, Dallas Crawford, Phillip Dorsett)
2-stars: 3 (Asante Cleveland, Walter Tucker, Ryan Williams)

Defense
5-stars: 1 (Tracy Howard)
4-stars: 5 (Anthony Chickillo, Kacy Rodgers, Luther Robinson, David Gilbert, Raphael Kirby)
3-stars: 10 (Antonio Crawford, Curtis Porter, Justin Renfrow, Alonzo Highsmith, Jr., Olsen Pierre, Denzel Perryman, Tyrone Cornileus, Ladarius Gunter, Nate Dortch)
2-stars: 2 (Ufomba Kamalu, Jimmy Gaines)
NR: 3 (Alex Figueroa, Thurston Armbrister, Nantambu Akil-Fentress)

**When healthy, Deon Bush is expected to return to the two-deep. He was a 4-star recruit.

UMike

G&T, I agree the scope is much larger and more involved, but one issue I have is how the NCAA repeatedly interviewed the same people trying to dig up "evidence" in the UM case, but simply used the evidence Manziel provided to determine his fate. If this was Morris they would have interviewed the brokers who made the claims, repeatedly, they would of interviewed the ESPN reporter who said he saw the video and heard Manziel's remarks etc etc etc. But all they did was talk to Manziel and then close the case.

Gin & Tonic

Manziel suspended for one half is a joke. Either suspend him or don't.

However, this has nothing to do with UM case. Manziel was one incident with one player. Big difference between that and the scope of the UM investigation.

That's pretty cheap considering the going rate.

LB

"I really do not like what is happening in the NCAA right now. It is a joke, and a very, very sad joke at that."

It's been evident for quite a while that the NCAA favors the $EC because they bring in so much revenue. They're even willing to brush things off.

Now it's as if they don't care to cover it up. It's really blatant, weird, and folks should be angry about it. If Stephen Morris had done what Johnny Manziel alleged...

...they would ban UM from football forever.

BOCA RATON —

Howard Schnellenberger will walk to midfield Friday at Sun Life Stadium representing two programs: One he says he grandfathers, one he says he fathers.

But for Schnellenberger, who will be the honorary captain for the University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University during the coin toss, his loyalties remain with one school.

“I’ve been at Florida Atlantic longer than other coaching assignments,” said Schnellenberger, who started at the university 15 years ago and remains there as a fundraiser for the president. “I’m still an integral part of this university and this team. No question where my loyalties lie. My sentiments lie with what this football team has accomplished.”

Schnellenberger, 79, is the man of the hour for the first game between two programs separated by 50 miles of Interstate 95 and US 1, but linked by the man whose prints remain on both.

In 1979 Schnellenberger took over a Miami program on life support and four years later pulled off one of the more stunning upsets in history, a 31-30 victory over Nebraska in the Orange Bowl that brought Miami its first of five national titles. That 1983 team will be honored Friday.

In 1998 he started building a program at Florida Atlantic that has risen to impressive heights, culminating with a conference championship and bowl game victory in 2007. Schnellenberger retired following a 1-11 2011 season.

CORAL GABLES —

Duke Johnson usually appears pretty sleepy when speaking to the media. Miami’s sophomore tailback produces chunks of yardage, not choice quotes.

But when he was asked which of his teammates had the best shot to chase him down, Johnson shot up an eyebrow in the manner that made ex-UM defensive tackle Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson famous.

“Chase … me … down?” Johnson said, taken aback.

Johnson showed that kind of swagger in every game last year, when he had arguably the greatest freshman season in Hurricanes history. He enters 2013 as a Heisman Trophy candidate, but he’s not the only one on the team. Senior quarterback Stephen Morris, cool off the field but fiery on it, has forced himself into the national conversation about the best quarterbacks in college football.

They are the best quarterback-running back duo in the ACC, and the best Miami’s had in at least a dozen years. They’re the type of 1-2 punch that could lift the Hurricanes to the ACC Coastal title and, should a soon-to-be-completed NCAA investigation bring no further major sanctions, their first bowl game since 2010.

“If you look at the teams that are playing in big-time bowl games, they have a quarterback and a running back,” offensive coordinator James Coley said. “How rare is it? I don’t know. It’s rare outside the top 20.”

How Al Golden became a Miami Hurricanes fan
by Matt Porter

Like many pre-teen college football fans in the early ‘80s, Al Golden used to tape the big games on VHS and re-watch them. One of his favorites was Miami’s dramatic 31-30 win over Nebraska in the 1983 Orange Bowl, which gave the Hurricanes their first national championship.

Why the interest in UM? Golden’s big brother, Greg, tried to walk on for coach Howard Schnellenberger in 1981. He left school by the championship season, but Golden cheered for the orange and green thereafter.

“When your big brother goes to Miami, you become a Miami fan,” Golden said Wednesday.

Talk about things coming full-circle.

They are the best of the best. The players wanted by every program and destined to make a big impact at the college level and beyond. Rivals.com has identified the first five-star prospects for the 2015 class and is unveiling them this week. Ten prospects have been awarded five-stars but are not ranked at this time, and we will profile two each day. One of today's five-stars is Gardena (Calif.) Serra linebacker John Houston.

According to Rivals, McFadden doesn't currently have a Miami offer, I'm willing to bet that changes lol

HAHAHAHA..From ESPN..

Here’s the part of that statement that really jumped off the page: “NCAA rules are clear that student-athletes may not accept money for items they sign, and based on the information provided by Manziel, that did not happen in this case.”

So the evidence they looked over was what Manziel provided himself? No interviewing the brokers for hours, no looking or trying to find the video and photos....no...we will just ask Manziel and see what he says! Meahwhile, they will repeatedly interview the same person and bully them in regards to Miami.

I really do not like what is happening in the NCAA right now. It is a joke, and a very, very sad joke at that.
