As long as this thing doesnt hurt football, we good. I can live without basketball in every way forever. They could cancel basketball and I wouldnt give 2 sh*ts.

VfB_Cane

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.

Dude

It looks like Louisville is f*cked.

BUSINESS INSIDER: Adidas rep & others conspired to offer $150,000 to HS player to play for U Miami

Posted by: 30CINCO | September 26, 2017 at 11:26 AM

I pray this is not true. This would not be good. The Canes have a basketball team capable of going far, and this scandal could set the program back. Its hard to believe that Coach L or his assistants would be involved, but I will wait and see what happens.

Dude

Posted by: WWIN | September 26, 2017 at 12:27 PM

Of course, but thats a different discussion. My point is that after a while, the meanings of symbols and customs change, and we get to decide what those meanings are. 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.

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.

lead story on yahoo......FBI probe uncovers massive NCAA corruption scandal

Go Canes!

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.

CaneRock

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.

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.

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.

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

Both Louisville and Miami are ' Adidas ' schools. And Adidas is named in one of the three complaints by the FBI.

AGREE 1 MILLION%

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?

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.

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!

CoCane

Wrong...

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

That's 4 out of 5 years.

TheeMackJones

" 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.

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?

Maybe this is why no one was arrested from Miami yet.

TheeMackJones

My main man, Rosier, is No. 15 is the nation regarding passing efficiency! Ouch. And that' s with only two games under his belt this season. Wow.

The kid from Toledo is No. 14 in the nation.

Oh, and one more thing. Duke's starting QB has ' NO. 81 passing efficiency ' rating.

Now if Miami's defense gets off to a good start. Then Miami will roll and roll and roll this Friday! No ifs, buts or huh.

TheeMackJones

Although Alabama and Clemson's quartebacks are no where to be seen in the Top 30 passing efficiency stat. Those two defenses make up for that anomaly. hUh.

Now if Miami's defense begins to play like a Top 20 defense. Then Miami will be SCARY good! No ifs, buts or what ever.

thirstybuzzardcane

Agree TheeMackJones! Like to see the corners play more press and the DL go to town. Its the recipe for disaster!

thirstybuzzardcane

Richt needs to call plays like he did in the second half of the game last week. He really attacked all parts of the field.

Ohio_Cane

It's POSSIBLE, that we're only named because a recruit was offered money to come to Miami (an Adidas school) by an Adidas exec.

This scenario clears Miami and it's coaches, and would piggyback on Bilas' point that some schools were a victim.

God please let this be what happened ^^^

One outcome of all of this will be that Adidas will not be allowed to sponsor these schools. We have had a falling out with Nike and Under Armor, so who is left?

I just read a report that the UM coach's name came up in a conversation but wasn't a party to the recorded call. I guess it's just wishful thinking at this point as once they hang a 20-30 year sentence over the Adidas dude he'll roll over like a stuck pig.

Dark days ahead for Coach L and the BB team. Hopefully this doesn't bleed over to the FB team. This is where having a Mark Richt over a Butch Davis pays a huge dividend IMO. Let's pray my hunch is correct...

Checked in to make sure all the Canespace family were doing good and accounted for. Sadly I see lots of politics being discussed as much or more than years ago. That was the reason I took a break from my favorite Canes site of all-time.

When I go to Canes games I don't care if jets fly over the stadium, if paratroopers fly into the stadium,if players stand kneel or loosen up I don care if the guy next to me stands, sits,puts his hand over his heart, or picks his ass, I don't care if soldiers, Boy Scouts,or clowns carry flags around. All I care about is if the Canes coaching staff gives us the very best chance to win the game, and that every player plays to the best of his ability and never quits.Going to games is a big investment in time and money nowadays root the Canes home and f all the media circus crap. I love you guys, Peace

Insomnia brigade research from the New York Times

The complaints announced Tuesday left tantalizing clues that what was alleged may only be the tip of the iceberg. One of the agent's involved urged the payment be increased because one of Adidas rivals was coming in with a higher number.

Yes Rosier made a couple of great plays with his legs and had a fine game overall. I have been very pleased with what I've seen so far from him.

But he also threw what could have been a catastrophic pick late in the game, which is something he's apparantly been dogged by his whole time here.

He's been solid and played very well. But that hasnt made me forget what could have been a fourth year starter who ended his career here putting up very big numbers without ever turning over the ball.

In my opinion that's the formula that will win us the most games offensively.

I hope Malik can avoid those kind of throws as we progress into the meat of our schedule.

It's only been two games, but my thoughts on this Kaaya/Rosier thing are the same. I saw some missed throws I thought Kaaya would of easily made, but I also saw Rosier make plays Kaaya could of never made.

And honestly we shouldn't even be talking about this...Rosier is the man, case closed.

You wanna go back to what we were talking about yesterday? We can... I'm always up for it! Lol

WWIN

Where was this perfect Kaaya at that I missed seeing???

He OVERTHREW and UNDERTHREW WR's all the time... threw into double and triple coverage but DB's just dropped the ball and didn't come up with the picks. That's how stats can be deceiving... and this was his last game here with a month to prepare!

I just love the fact that MR can get out of the pocket and run for a first down and in one case last week, a TD. That just gives D-cord something else to game plan for.

Great breakdown on State of the U of the timeline of UM's alleged involvement in this mess. I do not see any direct link or phone conversation that was tapped with a UM rep on the call. Plausible deniability is in play. Whoever coach 3 is they at least had the good sense not to talk over the phone.
I'm all for fixing this mess but the AD and the school need to do it "in house" this time. There is no advantage to "falling on the sword" with the NCAA. They will BBQ UM if UM admits to any of this.

Oh, and one more thing. NASSIR LITTLE is the Orange and Green elephant in the Miami recruiting machination. The kid played for an Adidas team- the same team who's director is in jail. In other words, there's a decent possibility that the kid is involved in the on going investigation, and the kid is a MAJOR TARGET of Jimmy L's program.

UM has never been one of "the good old boys". Miami is a villain and the NCAA would love nothing more than to be able to use their alleged involvement in this mess to sweep this under the rug IMO. The smart play here is to dig in like all the other schools do lately. Hell UNC just won a National Title while under the umbrella of what appears to be the greatest academic scandal ever alleged.
UM needs to defend the program and clean it up "in house". There is no advantage to going to the NCAA and falling on the sword.
