Go Canes!

Boom.

I have a serious question for you all:

Is EGO a major factor in winning?

Here is the background: Jimmy Johnson

Came from OSU as an unheralded coach. Hired at UM when people said WHAT? Had mixed results and then conflicted with current coaches at UM until year 2 or 3 when he brought in his own.

Then was wildly successful at Miami.

Then was wildly successful at Dallas.

Then later in his career faded fast with the Dolphins because maybe he had achieved what he wanted and lost his drive? The question is: Was his "Ego" satisfied?

No...he didn't succeed fully in Miami due primarily to two factors:

1) Yatil Green - Miami had a mediocre receiver group in 1996. McDuffie was a great possession receiver, and Lamar Thomas began to enjoy a resurgence as a capable #2, but a healthy Yatil Green would have changed the offense.

2) Randy Moss - Miami traded out of the first round right before the draft. Had JJ held tight he would have drafted the once in a generation superstar that would have brought him that Suoer Bowl.

Another what if-in 1999 the Rams traded for Marshall Faulk. Jana immediately offered a first rounder to Vermeil for Faulk, but was turned down. Add Faulk to the 99 Dolphins, and they go far.

To say JJ failed is an exaggeration. He may have burned himself out in Miami, but he built a very solid foundation which brought Miami a 41-23 record in the four seasons following his retirement.

Darn autocorrect...JJ, not Jana

Skool...thank you Sir!

Nice article!

Go Canes!

Didn't JJ take another WR while Moss was still on the board? Or passed on him and took another one with their next pick?

Don't remember anymore but that's what I thought.

Mark from Atlanta

Canes brothers!
Good morning to all.
My opinion, JJ great DEF talent...OFF...not as strong.
God bless you and Go Canes!

The Dude

Greg Schiano knew about the Sandusky abuses!!! We dodged a MASSIVE bullet when Richt was fired. I wonder if OSU will do the right thing...

The Dude

UCLA DC Tom Bradley knew also.

The Dude

I have never wanted a story to go away so badly... Penn State gives me the creeps. So happy AG is gone right now. PSU deserved the death penalty more than any school ever.

The Dude

If we win 9 or 10 games and as expected we are in the ACc CG, we could be starting 2017 ranked in the top 10 with a Senior QB. 2017 could be a helluva year.

Go Canes!

52 more days until kickoff.

@ App. St. W 3-0
@ GT W 4-0 (1-0) CanesFam ATL
Vs FSU ? 5-0/4-1 (2-0/1-1) We may not be ready
Vs UNC W 6-0/5-1 (3-0/2-1) Need to start winning these games at home
@VT W 7-0/6-1 (4-0/3-1) Beamer gone, need to win and shoot up rankings
@ND ? 8-0/6-2 (4-0/3-1) Could be a trap game or a super hyped game
Vs Pitt W 9-0/7-2 (5-0/4-1)
@UVA W 10-0/8-2 (6-0/5-1)
@NCST W 11-0/9-2 (7-0/6-1)
Vs Duke 12-0/10-2 (8-0/7-1)

We are certainly capable of losing an extra game in all of this though. 10 wins is a reasonable expectation in my mind but I'd set the over under at 9.

What happened there is sickening, its totally fair to ask if he knew. He'll say no (truth irrelevent, just getting it on record) but at least you covered your butt if it later comes out he did know. Then he's fired. Hopefully of course, he had no knowledge and nothing to do with it.

Felder went to PSU from 98-02. Who gives a damn if he went to school there?

The Dude

^^^ I thought he worked there?

The Dude

If he only went to school there then he probably didnt know anything.

Posted by: The Dude | July 12, 2016 at 02:34 PM

7-1 or 6-2 should get us either in or just on the outside of the ACC CG.

The Dude

I think the ACC CG loser gets the Citrus Bowl? Thats what UNC got last year.

Good statement. ...

And that goes true for ESPN, SEC, & the rest of college football fans included.

We have a realistic chance of winning every game we play in, sure everything may have to go our way, but it could. I'll take those chances and run with them.

CIS:

I honestly believe he promised Kirby Smart he would hand deliver him to UGA, and once Mo started to express interest in Miami he quickly plotted to shut it down.
Satan let Burgess-Becker transfer to UCF & Alec Morris to North Texas, so he clearly has some ulterior motive behind blocking Mo Smith.
Kirby won't allow his players to transfer to Miami either, so I seriously think there is something more to this than just being upset a Nickel CB is leaving.

The Dude

So Burgess-Becker has already left Bama after they used him to get Ridley? Lol. Take note South Florida recruits. Take note.

10 wins at a minimum. The Canes are more than capable of running the table. When Alabama is blocking our transfers, the Canes are on the road back to relevance

The Mark Walton matter was resolved this week with the lifting of the UM running back’s suspension, but Mark Richt is dealing with other disciplinary issues less than two months away from his first game as UM’s coach.

Among them:

• Ace Herald correspondent Peter Ariz and I have learned that freshmen receiver Sam Bruce is facing a potential one- or two-game suspension for brandishing a gun in a photo that resulted in Bruce withdrawing from St. Thomas Aquinas in February, shortly after signing his letter of intent with UM.

Bruce made the photo of himself with the weapon because of a dispute with a former Aquinas male student, a dispute centered around Bruce’s ex-girlfriend. A source said the photo ended up in the hands of the former student, who then called police and Aquinas. No charges were ever filed.

It’s always possible Richt could change his mind and decide not to suspend Bruce if his behavior is exemplary in August; neither I nor Peter nor anyone has a crystal ball and can predict if a coach will have a change of heart.

But a UM source with direct knowledge said Tuesday the university’s full intention at this point is to be suspend Bruce for two games to start the season because there is an expectation of how Hurricanes players should represent themselves and that there should be consequences for their actions.

Bruce, rated by Rivals.com as the seventh best receiver and 47th best player overall in the 2016 class, enrolled at UM in late June and is expected to receive playing time this season, potentially as a returner as well as a slot receiver.

• Defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad, arguably UM’s best defensive player, remains under scrutiny as UM continues to investigate whether at least four football players violated NCAA rules when they struck deals with a local car agency. As of Tuesday, Muhammad had not been cleared and it was undetermined if he would face discipline.

A source said UM is not expected to bring back linebacker Juwon Young, who was suspended indefinitely last month both for his involvement and for not being forthcoming with UM officials. UM also has investigated whether linebacker Jermaine Grace was involved.

UM’s investigation has focused on whether the players received discounted or heavily discounted luxury cars in exchange for some future stake in their careers.

Three sources told Peter and me that the dealership in question is South Beach Exotic Rentals.

Asked this week if his dealership had rented cars to any UM athletes, the company’s owner, Juan Caballero, said by phone: “I’m not aware of any of that. Maybe lower levels of the company have.”

Asked if he has ever given UM players free cars to drive, he said: “We’re not giving anything for free. Jay Z paid when he rented a car. Justin Bieber paid.”

Caballero said “no [UM] player is getting any sort of special treatment. I couldn't name one person on that team.”

A UM player said eyebrows were raised when Young drove to practice last season in an expensive car. According to a UM source, a former girlfriend informed UM about Young’s involvement.

ACC teams typically bring one offensive player and one defensive player to the conference’s media day, next week in Charlotte. But UM, cognizant of the car controversy, is taking punter Justin Vogel (along with quarterback Brad Kaaya) instead of Muhammad or Grace.

It's important to again note that the NCAA is not investigating UM. If Miami finds wrongdoing, it will report what it discovered to the NCAA and get the NCAA's blessing on Miami's suggested discipline for student athletes who committed violations.

• Walton, reinstated from suspension after a DUI charge against him was dropped, is not expected to be held out of any games. A day after Walton’s attorney accused the police of botching the matter, city of Miami police chief Rodolfo Llanes defended his department’s handling of the case.

“Mr. Walton was taken into custody based upon probable cause, which is the legal standard required to effect an arrest,” Llanes said today in a statement emailed to several media outlets, including The Herald. “Mr. Walton’s physical contact with the Miami Police Department began with visual observations of possible impaired driving. Further investigation revealed he was driving with a suspended license.

“Mr. Walton’s eventual blood alcohol level was below the .08 threshold, however it should be noted that Mr. Walton is not of age to purchase or consume alcoholic beverages. The declination to file criminal charges as a function of prosecutorial discretion should not be used to presume wrongdoing on the part of the Miami Police Department or any of its officers. Our investigation revealed there was no evidence of any prior relationship or association.”

Walton’s attorney, Joey McCall, told WINZ’s Andy Slater this week: "We learned with our own investigation that at least two City of Miami officers, through the alleged victim, lured Mark over to a house, were hidden when he got there, and then rushed him with guns drawn. One officer came from inside the house and the other officer came from around the side of the house.

“Mark was literally terrified and as a result cooperated with whatever he was made to do. All he could think about was trying to stay alive."

So, why, Slater asked, were there cops at her house waiting for Walton as McCall described?

"We learned from other officers within the City of Miami police department that the arresting officers, among others, were essentially conducting a warrantless sting operation that they were not assigned to do and weren't asked to participate in," McCall told Slater. "Based on additional information we received, the alleged victim and at least one of the arresting officers have a personal relationship of some kind and knew each other prior to April 23."

Go Canes!

I picked up number almost completely because of #15 and the influence CMR will have.

We're way too thin in the defensive backfield and green at the linebacker position.

10-2 would be a heck of a transition season for this team, one that's never learned to win.

Go Canes!

And welcome back UMike
