Posted by: WWIN | September 26, 2017 at 12:32 PM

No, I knew nothing about this. What I was referring to was about football and is good news.

CoCane

I think the layoff probably made a moderate difference. Not enough of difference to make it an excuse for garbage DB play. The OL opened holes and protected Rosier. The front 7 stuffed the run. WR, RB, TE and QB all balled. Why were the play of DB the only ones affected by the layoff?

Bullsh*t

The DB need to tighten up. Period...

Fraud U say? What fraud? Look at Carolina Blue. Academic fraud for 25 years and still no real punishment. If the NCAA won't punish academic fraud are we gullible enough to believe they will do anything on this? The NCAA is a toothless, worthless organization employing right-wing TRUMP hypocrites.

" While some other major schools and national championship coaches are not specifically named yet ( EMPHASIS ADDED ), nearly any college basketball fan can put the dots together on some of the recruiting stories to figure out who is who. The names that are expected to come out will be prominent. " Yahoosports. com

This nefarious situation is just the proverbial TIP of the ICE BERG! I just wonder which other major programs are laying low under the ice berg. Ouch.

CoCane

Wrong...

The hoops team went to the "Big Dance" in '98, '99, '00 and '02.

That's 4 out of 5 years.

TheeMackJones

The Arizona Wildcat men's hoops program DIDN'T need to CHIT on it's self. Especially when Arizona has been an NCAA Tournament program SINCE the ' 1984-85 ' season!

TheeMackJones

" While only four schools are currently involved, the complaints will provide a treasure map for NCAA investigators as it tells stories of endless payouts and kickbacks in the recruitment of numerous top prospects over the past three years. "

Again, Miami hass QUICKLY risen to NCAA Tournament the past ' three seasons. ' dUh. When prior to the arrival of Jimmy L, Miami was NEVER a perennial type of NCAA Tournament program.

Now, now. I'm NOT insinuating that Jimmy L has anything to do with the latest NCAA scandal. It's just puzzling that a men's program, with NO previous CONSISTENT NCAA Tournament experience, quickly becomes a legitimate NCAA Tournament type of program. hUh.

TonyCane

Trying to wrap my mind around this. Obviously this was the "ten secrets" that were mentioned last night. Depending on the number of schools involved, how badly does this damage college basketball? And if the NBA decides to now allow HS players back in..doesnit basically become an itch sport?

Would the NCAA be willing to give out 10-20 death penalties?

Of course, it isn't the ethical NCAA. That body of major collegiate sports is too CORRUPT to investigate on of their OWN. dUh. Why do U think it takes an OUTSIDER law enforcement agency to investigate the schools affiliated with the NCAA! dUh.

TheeMackJones

To clarify: while HS players allegedly offered bribes to play at Louisville & Miami, no reports yet that Louisville/Miami employees involved

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | September 26, 2017 at 01:31 PM

Yes. Both schools allegedly offered top HS talent " 100,000 dollars and 150,000 dollars!! " OUCH. No wonder Miami QUICKLY became a NCAA Tournament squad. Especially when Miami NEVER was an NCAA Tournament type of squad PRIOR to the advent of Jimmy arriving in Thee Gables. hUh.

Nevertheless, MY Arizona Wildcats have CHITTED themselves. When assistant coach E. ' Book ' Richardson was arrested by the notorious right-wing leaning FBI.

My, my, it's a SAD day in Arizona Wildcat mens basketball! A sad day to say the least. duh.

Go Canes!

Refuse to believe Coach L is in any way involved.

Will be 0% shocked if a kid or two came here because he got paid by one of these scumbags.

College basketball is officially DOA after this fiasco. This isn't the NCAA. The Feds use site taps and have subpoena power. People are going to jail when this thing is done.

OGV, I hear ya', but we should've at least stopped 1 of the TDs Cook & Whitfield scored. Noooobody covered Whitfield on His TD, although it could be argued Corn was being held. Cook's TD looked like a blown coverage, still no excuse for nobody accounting for their best player.

Heard the first 10 minutes of the press conference.

It may be possible the schools didn't even know what was going on. There were rouge financial people working directly with the top guy at Adidas in dealing with the players families.

Wrong. Felonious sex-assault university averaged 35.1 points a game and 466 total yards, 202 on the ground at 5.1 ypc and 264 in the air at 8.1 ypp attempt last season. I know you don't go to games so you and I both didn't attend this one in question but even from my seat at home we both watched Diaz and crew held them to 20 points, (two whole touchdowns and a 2 point conversion below average) 167 yards on the ground for a 3.9 ypc and 240 in the air on 33 attempts for a 7.4 per attempt average that night in prime time.

That's a good day calling the signals anyway you slice it. UM lost that game because that's all the gold-hen girl loser for life against the primary rival did during his shitty joke of a career while the GD's and crew slurped it down no questions allowed to be asked.

As far as the country not loving you back goes, this isnt anything new. I would contend that the country (our government) doesnt love any of us, unless of course someone on this blog has a sweet superpac and donates millions to elections.

We don't know the scenario yet.

If Adidas reps payed recruits to sign with adidas sponsored schools (including the U), and nobody at the U knew about it, all is good. Except for the palyer(s) in question, of course.

If adidas checked with school officials "who do you want?" and then used money to get the player to sign there, we're in big, big trouble.

What's happening in this country today just makes me sad.

Seeds of progress planted decades ago by truly great men have been purposely destroyed by a previous administration hell bent on making issues with race the rule rather than the exception and now this red haired buffoon is taking a sledgehammer to any remaining sign of growth.

Hundreds of millions of tolerant, accepting white Americans being pigeonholed into terms like racist, xenophobe or nazi only exacerbate issues. Just as portraying any protester, black or white, as anti-cop or even anti-American is disgraceful.

We're better than this. At least I hope we are.

CaneRock

My apologies to you Raize & SOUP. I should've been more specific in my original post on the matter.

Dude

Posted by: WWIN | September 26, 2017 at 10:20 AM

Probably not, but that doesnt mean it cant be. Keep in mind, this country wasnt created for my black brothers and sisters, at least not overtly. Anti-slave founders (many of which owned slaves) had to use some trickery to punt the football onto later generations. I will say this much WW, many blacks are in the military, and to many of them, the anthem which speaks of bravery & grit in battle applies to every generation, not just those that fought in the war of 1812, so my white grandfather that faught in WW2, Korea & Vietnam, its about him, and its also my about my black grandfather, a 25 year Marine with several tours in Vietnam. So I ask you, how much does original intent really mean? As Jefferson once said, "I like the dreams of the future rather than the history of the past." He was a believer that the dead shouldnt govern the future. We get to decide what it all means. Last thing, football players are not protesting the anthem itself, they are protesting against police brutality and a criminal justice system that allows cops to get away with murder. Big difference.

You know how it's some things that you put up with or shrug off till you finally get tired of it... this is one of those things for me.

I can't speak for everyone but as a black man I find a song written by a racist slave owner very offensive! And for me and my people to pretty much be forced to stand at a attention when this song is played says a lot about where this country stands. I just want for us to be treated equally. If it was a song offensive to whites I would feel the same way!

Serious question... do you honestly think that the anthem and flag was created with good intentions for ALL race's?

We can respectfully disagree (its all good).....I believe most are out there because they disagree with the current president but that just this Cubans opinion, .... never the less, I think we as nation need to be more concerned about NOKO at the moment. That dude is just plain nuts and I fear its going to get really ugly and soon.

UMike

I do agree we are going the wrong way. I wish President Trump would of said some along the lines of "while I do not agree with the way in which these athletes protest, it is their right to do so." Or "while I believe our national anthem is not the time to protest, I also think we need to do more to address the issues being protested."

Our politicians cannot wait to divide us...and sadly unlike me and you, the country as a whole cannot sit a talk, exchange thoughts and reasons and actually listen. Much easier to pick a side and stick with it

UMike

Raize... I would like to respectfully disagree. First let me say I will never Support violence or damage to property etc, those are criminals not protestors. But to the point, I grew up in mostly black and Latino areas and I'm well aware of racial injustice, ive seen it first hand. So I believe whites who protest (not riot) side by side with blacks are aware.

People need to understand that the anthem is offensive to some people and the flag wasn't made for everybody!

Posted by: WWIN | September 26, 2017 at 09:43 AM

When did this start being offensive? I am curious to know. I am 53 years old, attended many many sporting events in my life time and it never seemed to be an issue until recently....just saying.

raizecane

NASCAR is extremely different culturally then other sports, so I wouldn't expect less from them. I am not saying they are racist at all, but if over 95% of the drivers, owners, crews, fans etc come From mostly white rural areas, how would I expect them to be aware of racial injustice or police brutality?

********************************

UMike,

you are correct in the above statement. the answer would be the same way that the whites who protest along with the African Americans and you see on the street hurling rocks and breaking windows know.....I am willing to bet 95% of those are not aware of racial injustice or police brutality either.

Its just sad that this country seems more divided in the last 10 years then in the previous 10. We are going the wrong way....

What I hate is none of these organizations, NASCAR, NFL, NBA etc have actually tried to fix or help the issues that sparked the initial protest. It has become all about the anthem, all about the flag, all about politics, all about media and not at all about police brutality and racial injustice.

This was almost a dead issue until our President reignited and fanned the flames. I respect the opinions of people against taking a knee, but I also respect the players taking a knee and the reason for it. It was actually a veteran who suggested to Kap that he takes a knee. I think refusing someone's right to peacefully protest is one of the more un-American things you can do. Disagree all you want, but respect their rights.

NASCAR is extremely different culturally then other sports, so I wouldn't expect less from them. I am not saying they are racist at all, but if over 95% of the drivers, owners, crews, fans etc come From mostly white rural areas, how would I expect them to be aware of racial injustice or police brutality?

For me I refuse to let politicians, the media or our very own President put hate in my heart. If you want to take a knee I got your back. If you want to take a stand I got your back. I just ask you listen to the other side and find middle ground... Don't ignore or hate because your political "side" wants you to.

This NFL kneeling thing has been politicized and bastardized beyond recognition at this point and has run the course of being an effective tool in raising awareness of any issue.

It's time to move on from it in my opinion.

In hindisght a much better initial face for that movement than Kapernik would have gone a lot farther in delivering an important message.

Showing up with a Che and Fidel Castro shirt after his protest destroyed his credibility from the onset and inevitably marginalized what serious men like Michael Bennett and others had to say after the fact.

Oh, I presume there are exceptions. I understand that the game is being played. One school can have a coach with car leasing locations that is "leasing" to his players without a thought of impropriety, and another school can be thought of as worthy of the death penalty because a rogue booster gave an athlete 100 dollars.

At times, He wasn't all that last year either. 2 of the TDs we gave up last year vs FSU, were because of some of His bizarre underneath coverages...the same bizarre underneath coverages we've seen the first 2 games this year.

13 yards per carry for Mark Walton so far is unbelievable

BigWindyCane1

Canes opened as a -5.5 point favorite at Duke, but are now a -6.5 favorite. Vegas likes the Canes, although some Prognosticators are picking Duke. This could be an early test for the Canes. A win could launch a great ACC run, and extend the current winning streak to seven - now of the best Canes win streaks in the last decade.

WWIN

BigWindyCane1

I will be watching this game very closely to see how the team, especially the defense, responds to its mistakes. The defense was better against Toledo than it was against BETHUNE Cookman. The defense will have to take another step forward against Duke. If I see improvement, that gives me hope that the coaches and players are capable of making adjustments and correcting their mistakes. Reduce missed tackles and assignments, and the defense will improve a lot.

The results I saw on the field made me very angry, but the wins and some honest reflection has led me to cool down. I will reserve my judgement on the defense until during and after this Duke game. I want to see how the Canes respond.

When he was competent, at worst, for the year. Compared to five seasons of doofus and fatso stealing cash from the AD, that'll do fine and he can get better as he gets to use the entire playbook instead of the first few pages.
