UM partially lifts SEC ban for Marve

The University of Miami has lifted part of the restrictions UM coach Randy Shannon placed earlier this week on former quarterback Robert Marve's impending transfer. Instead of being barred from going to all SEC schools, Florida, Tennessee and LSU are the only specific SEC schools Marve will not be able to attend.

A statement released moments ago explained why -- because UM believes Marve's family members or others on behalf of Marve contacted those schools during the season.

"Due to the attention this issue has received, the University feels it is appropriate to state the reason for Robert_marvekeeping the restriction on those schools. The University of Miami has reason to believe that the Marve family or others on behalf of the Marve family contacted those institutions during the 2008 season regarding Robert's potential transfer prior to him having been given his release by UM," the statement said. "We are not suggesting any wrong doing on the part of any of the universities mentioned. Robert's desire to request a transfer was reviewed in the same manner that we do for every student-athlete in every sport. It is important to note that any stipulations imposed on any possible transfer are always the result of circumstances and are not done in haste or spite. As per NCAA regulations, a student-athlete can appeal any restrictions or stipulations given by a school regarding his or her transfer."

LET'S FACE IT. COACH SHANNON OUT SMARTED ROBERT MARVE AND THOSE WHO WERE CONNECTED TO HIM. COACH SHANNON KEPT HIS WORD IN REGARDS TO ROBERT REMAINING THE STARTER, EVEN THOUGH ROBERT IN MY OPIN ION WAS OUT PLAYED BY JACORY HARRIS. COACH SHANNON WASN'T THE ONE WHO GOT IN TROUBLE. ROBERT MARVE'S ACTIONS GOT HIM IN TROUBLE. I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT WITH THE CLASS THAT HE HAS SHOWN, IF THERE WAS NO CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING FLORIDA. COACH SHANNON WOULD HAVE WELCOMED ROBERT MARVE'S TRANSFER. COACH SHANNON IS MERLY SETTING AN EXAMPLE TO THOSE PLAYERS AND THOSE SCHOOLS WHO TRY AND LURE AWAY HIS PLAYERS THAT HE WILL UTILIZE HIS POWER TO MAKE THIER WRONGS BECOME RIGHT. MY PROBLEM IS THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE GOTTEN LOST IN WHAT IS HAPPENING. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT IT APPEARS AS THOUGH ROBERT MARVE FEELS HE CAN DO WHAT HE PLEASES AND GET AWAY WITH IT. I COMMEND COACH SHANNON FOR THAT AND A COACH LIKE THAT CAN BRING HIMSELF, HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY TO OUR HOUSE FOR DINNER ANYTIME. IN A DAY WHEN MANY COACHES ARE TURNING THEIR HEAD TO THE ANTICS OF THEIR STAR PLAYERS. COACH SHANNON IS STANDING OUT AS ONE WHO WILL NOT. PROVERBS 11:8 PSALMS 119:98

This Wetzel article is exactly the kind of thing Shannon should've tried to avoid. I understood not allowing a transfer to UF, Tenn, or LSU, but not the whole SEC.

The whole thing is over so let's get it behind us.

As Shannon and Um have modified the order it should be the end of this mess. Let him go anywhere else he wants..Perhaps he will grow up from this--His father has advanced prostate cancer which is fatal--just a matter of time so cut him some slack. His main interest is making sure his son gets into a good situation--what any father would do. End of story..now let's hope for another great recruiting class and we are back..

With the exception of UF, LSU, and Tenn, lol I dont think UM has to worry about those schools, why on earth would any of those schools want Marve?

Well one thing is for sure, hopefully this ordeal will close up and we wont have to read about it on the Herald anymore. You guys are dedicating too much time to this underperforming QB. Move on.

well as QB, marve is not. but the U is giving him a full shaft..its stupid to think he gonna go to Florida, or LSU, or any other school, and then play against the U...lololol..do you think those other schools would accept him??? ...I dought it..by the time he gets to play, against canes..shannon will be gone..and I have yet to see any player come back with other team, and beat miami..let him go to any school,he wants..hes no threat to canes, or any other school..he will have to sit out 09 season, and then if he can make team, he will be back up..and if he wins starting QB job, it will be at least 2 more yrs, if then,..hes no threat to any team, as long as canes play in ACC..they will never win more than 6-7 games anyway..and why would he want to play in ACC, is beyond my thinking..Harris will have, a few good yrs, but not that good..and by then, U may wake up, and find real coach..so grin and and think how it could of been..end of story..

To settle this issue all one needs to do is read the post below:

The culprit was RM's HS Coach. He actually admitted as much.

He said something to the effect that "I've heard (from) LSU, Tenn, and FLA are interested in RM if he were to leave UM."

The FHSAA and the NCAA already stated the were looking into the matter. This all happened a day or two before RM announced his transfer. While UM was in Cal. Like they wouldn't find out. Hey Coach Weener ... we know! Get out of HS football. In fact get out of sports all together.

Go Canes!

Posted by: CanesFan2 | January 02, 2009 at 11:28 PM

This was known in Gainsville. It was a short blurb in our local Rag. This HS coach has been known to be a problem. He used to push kids here, they sucked for the most part. He and they didn't get the "respect" he thought he and they should. So, he tried to push his ego and suspect athletes on U guy's. I hate to say it but Randy caught on pretty quickly.

Now, despite this "jerk of a coach" some the kids that have come out of his program have translated well to "big time programs."

This guy is all about using his program to promote himself first.


Go GATORS make it Three Rings ... Beat the Sooners!

ok now that ya'll have cried about how bad the U is..what are ya'll gonna do about it..times change..and so do players..what we need is complete change in coaching staff..shannon not the answer..nor is U up to date..on how to hire right coach..ya have to pay him good money to bring team back, from winning only 6-7 games just to make bowl game..ya need coach that knows how to treat players, not how bad they are..most kids will mess up, before they grow up, so what!..they are trying..but with out all these stupid rules, that the U has ..late for class is a way of life in college, and if you play for team, you need that attention, to get to your butt in grear anyway..the U has gone down hill.its time for fans to have a say, on how schools work..it was a proud school at 1 time but its gone now..ya cant push kids to be super stars, with out, being 1 your self..football in college has gone to making money, instead,of teaching kids facts of life..lets go back to old days..1 for all, and all for 1..end of story..

Wow. I can't believe some of the canes fans and their ignorance to the goings on in big time college football.

Read Rick's post at the link below:

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2009/01/um-partially-li.html#comment-143980220

Yes Rick, RMarve sucks and will not start no matter wear he goes. Really, name me a transfer that ever succeeded.

But Rick, it,s not about the player in a situation like this ... this kid is full of info when it come to both offensive and defensive tendencies. And it's not so much about the school he goes but the common opponents.

Plus, as was noted in other posts Marve's coach admitted he had been in contact with UF, TENN and LSU on behalf of Marve.

I now know part of UM's problem and why they may suck for ever ... it's the screwed up fan base. With fans like I've read here UM has no chance. And that's good for me and the GatorNation.

Geez, the number one recruiting class last year and this yrs looks to be as good and some of U guy's aren't satisfied, please educate yourselves.

Go Gators make it Three Rings ... Beat the Sooners!

Dan Wetzel from Yahoo Sports put out an uninformed Hit Piece on UM, with half information and the typical "hate the U" rhetoric. Coach Shannon is exactly what all the national media guys have been crying for at the U for decades...a strict disciplinarian..now that want to hand the guy out to dry.

Humorous note: Wetzel whining about NCAA being a business while he and Yahoo have hooked up with Rivals, which is cashing in huge off of High School athletics...pretty pathetic!

That hate never ceases in some corners of the national media.

Go Canes!
Coach Shannon is doing a good job!
Who is our new OC???????

THE UNIQUE THING ABOUT THE TRUTH IS THAT IT IS LIKE A "COLD CASE" EVEN THOUGH SOMETIMES IT APPEARS SLOW TO SOLVE, THE TRUE FACTS EVENTUALLY COME OUT. THOSE WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE ROBERT MARVE DEBACLE, NO MATTER HOW HIDDEN. WILL EVENTUALLY BE FLUSHED OUT. I REMEMBER YEARS AGO A VERY FAMOUS MIAM I HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL COACH WAS FAMOUS FOR HAVING SOM E OF THE BEST TEAMS AND FOR RECRUITING PLAYERS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS. HE AND HIS SCHOOL WERE EVENTUALLY EXPOSED AFTER HE RECRUITED A PLAYER FROM A SCHOOL WHO HAD SOME PULL. THIS COACH WAS EVENTUALLY OUSTED, EVEN IF IT WAS DONE IN A SUBLTE WAY. THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE HAND OF GOD HAS A UNIQUE WAY OF EXPOSING THAT WHICH SEEMS TO BE SO WELL HIDDEN. ST.MATTHEW 10:26

Gatorsforever...that transfer at Ol Miss looked pretty good.

All the same I wish Marve well...if his camp didn't speak in public none of this would be an issue.

Learn from Shannon, short and specific. [period]

Go Canes!

After reading your last post Rick why don't you just come clean and let us all know that in reality your an fsu fan. Your knowledge of college football is too low to be a Gator.

What did you think ... a coach was going to go into a program with;

no numbers in depth
no talent at any position
depleted O-Linemen and D-Linemen

I'm sorry U guy's fired Coker when U did. Just look at how our recruiting shot up over the Coker yrs. And it's now paying dividends. (And it's not Meyer, he just benefited from great recruits from Florida).

But, with Randy's class of last yr and this yr we've (UF) suffered. So, I agree get rid of Randy and start over, this will be great for us Gator's.

Rick, it's UM fans like U that we Gators are all in favor of ... keep up the good work and keep pushing to screw up UM's program, because it can only be good for us and fsu.

Go Rick and Gators Beat the Sooners!

I am not a gator fan, but i would like to see Gators, put a hurt on OK..Tebow has nothing to prove in college game..he should be a 1st round pick if he decides to go to NFL..and how many kids do Gators have waiting to play..where would marve fit in that program..and Gators dont play canes every yr..would he be better at LSU?? dont think so..same story, LSU has kids in waiting also..so again where would marve fit in??..and see where kid from U transfered to memphis, and heard rummor that NIX may be OC at that school, i wonder why marve would not transfer to that school, did not marve and nix get along ok at U..guess we just have to wait and see..end of story..

This is for Dan Kentzel or whatever his name is.
Dan, you're an idiot who knows nothing of the Marve situation. I guess that's why you write for Yahoo sports. Small time money. I understand your anger. Hey, why don't you write the article about Urban Meyer's refusal to let 2 players transfer or the one about recruiting his girlfriend for a track scholly so her boyfriend would come to play football. Get your facts together before writing, Dan. The kid was a loser who was recruited in high school and thought he was going to be given a starting job at the U. You know what they say "If you can't stand the heat, tuck your tail and run out behind the woodshed to hide." After this is over, you'll never hear of Robert Marve again, except maybe on COPS. Get a life and do some professional writing.

If Miami had to prove their allegations, I'm sure they could. They probably have evidence and witnesses to the tampering. However, let put this to bed and move on. Marve isn't a Cane and never will be.

Perhaps Coach Weiner should read the 2005 articles about Alabama high school coaches and "shopping players". This is where it can lead. A short excerpt:

USA TODAY

Former coach says he took payoff in Alabama recruiting scandal
By Woody Baird, The Associated Press
MEMPHIS — A former high school coach testified Tuesday that he took a $150,000 payoff to send his top football player to the University of Alabama.

Lynn Lang said he received the money from Logan Young, a Memphis millionaire who is on trial on federal bribery and money laundering charges.

Lang is awaiting sentencing on a guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy. He said he took the money to convince defensive lineman Albert Means to sign with Alabama in 2000.

Young's lawyers contend Lang is lying to save himself from a long prison sentence.

Means, who has not been accused of wrongdoing, testified earlier in the day that he let Lang choose his college.

Lang said he began shopping Means around to various colleges when he realized in 1999 how many schools wanted him. He said he was referred to Young, a longtime Alabama booster, by former Crimson Tide assistant coach Ivy Williams.

Lang said he began the bidding for Means at $50,000, and Young "took to it like water."

Lang said he kept upping the price until it topped out at $150,000, which he received in a series of payments each smaller than $10,000, the threshold at which bank transactions must be reported.

Young told him that since the payments were in cash, "If anything happened, it was his word against mine," Lang testified.

this has been the 2nd time rivals and yahoosports columnists had taken a shot at Randy Shannon and his program!!! the first one was the whole randy/urban meyer fiasco, maybe the columnists are from FSU or UF or something hahaha

You guys sound like a bunch of yentas at Aventura..... take the dresses off and play football like you used to in Miami.

A once proud program has now become an embarassment with fans living in the past.

Heh, Dan Wetzel is the type of idiot that would snipe at RS left and right from the sidelines, then when the negativity turns the public against him and he's fired, cry about the lack of black head coaches in CFB.

What a putz.

There is a problem with a lot of sports columnists. The could look at a popular topic, think about it, look at similar situations in history, and write a cogent, well thought out article. Instead, a lot of them just use their position as a soap-box to scream an uninformed opinion. You'd think they'd have pride in their work and want to put out a GOOD article, not one where half their readers think "what an idiot".

Meanwhile, beat writers like Manny get stuck at the bottom of the totem pole instead of flying out to cover games. Life's not fair eh?

honestly if university of miami is to fire someone, it should be shalala, geezalooh, come on girl, try and atleast prove to UM fans u actually care about the football program and the athletics in general by atleast proposing a plan of building an in-campus field and paying quality money for quality coaches, not neccessarily firing RS but improving the assistant around him, for god's sakes woman!!! show me the money!!!! hahaha, if there isn't enough money then go out there and pull in some more boosters to get our program back where it was!!!!! shalala, girl, move your behind and actually start working!!! and what the hell is ur AD there for???? get him to working aswell, lets do it!!!!!

YA a'll crack me up, with out tebow, florida is just a school,with no names..and most of them will be gone in yr or so..and if tebow blows this last game..forget it..its like voters who gave him 1-3 but not 2..but i have Florida as winner of so called BCS bowl...only 1 team went undefeted and they wont be no 1. why!! because they aint big name school..money talks, but smaller schools gets B.S. about they dont belong..its in name only..playoffs are way to go..so have 1 more game let Florida play undefeted team as final to season..i dont think OK can beat Florida..in state of Florida..but to prove point after florida beats ok..then last game should be good 1..and its i more U that Gators have to beat but it wont happen.end of story..

Ok, Chris F. the point being the large majority
of transfers don't work out very well.

And I'm sure we will able some more over the years that did great and good for them.

What's his name? It slipped my mind.

Remember Jeff George, Fortay or Freeman. Just to name a few.

Also, I agree with U on the media haters for UM. Shoot, we've had some significant criminal problems with a couple of our "student - athletes" this yr but they don't write about that, do they.

Here's the flip side, Chris;

I've noticed over the many yrs of UM's period of dominance ... the recruits that committed despite of or regardless of UM's media problems committed because they were True Canes. While most recruits are recruits that are in it for what "the schools rep can do for them". Not True Cane recruits, for them it's what they can do for the u.

This what most UM haters - hate about UM ... is this brotherhood thing. So, I and others love to see the fan decent on these blogs. One it shows the utter ignorance of some of your fans - they don't understand a concept as simple as "keep away" when it comes to recruiting.

So, UM fans please help us Gators and send Randy packing. This will help us get the recruits we want.

Go Gators beat Sooners!

i gotta give it to Shannon though, not very bright HC but he is one hell of a recruiter, despite all the hooplas and dramas going on right now surrounding the U, he is still managing to keep his current recruits, and may have a chance to rack up some more on this weekends prep games (UA and Army all-american) good job Randy, atleast you're good at something, could be the one reason u get to keep ur job this year!!!

It's sad to read that some of the "U" fans want to win at all cost to include NCAA probation. What a shame!!! The rest of the NCAA D-1 Schools want this program to be shut down for good because of the talent in this area. You can not win unless you have talent; let's face the facts, this team did not have the talent at the upper level and it showed this year. Our underclass men play better than the seniors. It had nothing to do with Randy and his staff. Stop the whinning and let RS do his job!!! You will see the improvement now that the problem has been removed.

last 1 for today..what did you think about butt kicking Alabama got from WHO???..alabama was favorite to beat WHO????.. thats whats nice about college football..save ya money..and think the U for next yr..and all you shannon lovers, think U for next yr..and put up some money to save the U...they need it bad...end of story..

Changing the restrictions on Marve looks like good old fashioned damage control. If you really think about it, who cares where Robert Marve goes to school! Next year he probably would have rode the bench behind Harris. Maybe his father was wrong, but what good did it do for Coach Shannon to react to so many with the perception of being vengeful? Frankly, if this thing wound up in court I wonder if the NCAA rule would have stood up. Regardless, for sure, the University of Miami took a another hit it did not need. Clearly, this matter shows a lack of maturity on the part of Randy Shannon. Glad someone at the university used some common sense and cut our losses. Right now I'm having a lot of trouble believing that Coach Shannon is the man to bring the U back to where it belongs.

safety vaughn telemaque will friggin' kill it next yr,it will pick up the mess for brandon blowing the cover, i promise u that!!!! brandon harris, don't worry son help is on the way since u can't seem to cover the corner, let's go secondary, let's step it up next yr, i'm hoping mcgee comes out good and not just all hype like b.harris was, then again it was his first year so i'll lighten up a lil bit!!!!

is it me? or does anyone else here thinks cooper fumbles way too much??? i really hope he improves on that part of his game, and hopefully be more of a gamebreaker instead of always going into the middle, watch more reggie bush tapes, ur just as fast, u can use the same technique!!!! lets go coop, i'm still rooting for you to succeed, hopefully u improve ur draft stock next yr, good choice on coming back to the U!!!!

bryce brown, lamar miller, lee chambers, craig cooper, javarris james . . nuff said!!!!

Marve is a moron. He is Willie Williams part 2. This jack $ss couldn't handle competition, like Willie Williams, and now thinks he can walk into any program in this day and age and simply be the starting QB because otherwise daddy will get upset. Well, somebody check Marve's dipper because this whole thing stinks. Let's see what his excuse will be when he screws up in the SEC with defenses that are faster and more physical than the ACC. And I am a Cane fan, but the reality is right now the SEC has too many good defenses. Marve's boneheaded plays under pressure are bound to multiply. You heard it from me first, so when you see his crying a&& on ESPN you can say yeah that dude on the herald posted exactly what was going to happen.

U forgot, Mike James! He is probably the best RB.

bryce whoooo? lamar whooo? lee whooo? craig whooo? javarris whooo? all loosers like all youall um???

Hey, randy kicks urbans behind in recruiting!!!!!, you may be right.

But, before you U start making statements about how bright a HC RS may be, don't you think it would be fair to look at the situation he walked into, with his eye's wide open. So, let's look at the facts, not the excuses:

1) A program totally depleted in numbers and talent. (Thanks Coker)

2) Coker fired with little or no time left in the recruiting process and after all quality OC and DC's had been hired. (Thanks Dee)

3) No time (Thanks Dee), no talent (Thanks Coker), and No Money (Thanks Comrade Shalalalala)

As far as RS football smarts, Jimmy Johnson (you may be to young to remember him but, JJ knows talent, players and coaches) as an advisor to the U's efforts to find a new HC, lobbied hard for the U to hire RS.

Once hired JJ joined RS as an "everyday advisor" and based on the unique circumstances
at the time they developed the plan they're working now. And plan is not to satisfy short term wants by ignorant fans, but to develop a plan for long term national dominance.

This starts with quality recruits that will attract quality coaches (OC and DC included) and the money needed to sign them.

So, first recruiting class was great. (1)

(2) This got/pressured Comrade Shalalalala to announce in a very public news conference that money was no object, but she only gave enough for Bill Young.

(She came out yesterday (1,2,09) say RS has all the money he needs for a quality O C.)

In comes Bill Young, 30+ yrs of quality defenses and the last 10 yrs his defenses ranked in the top 5 nationally while at Kansas in the Big 12. He gave this up to come here because JJ and RS showed him the plan and great recruits. He'll do fine here. And as they weed out Cokers recruits the defense will rise in national prominence.

(3) Now, with the money, the time and the connections, RS and JJ will bring in a great replacement for the interim O C Nix.

(Nix was always thought of as an interim O C, they had no time or money for anything else until now)

Look he (new O C) may not be a "Name" but with JJ involved - rest assured he will be quality.

So: Hey, randy kicks urbans behind in recruiting!!!!!

Ya, RS kicks butt in recruiting. Including coaches. And JJ did a great job in recruiting RS, twice! Now give him the tools to work with before you judge his HC ability.

To quote a Gator poster here "you've got to see the forest for the trees".

Go Canes!

Sorry, I am a UM grad and I think that this is wrong. Just tell the kid, "Goodbye. We will win with or without you." Shannon is no PR genius, that's for sure. I hope he can show just as much gameday genius as he has shown recruiting skills. Clock management at the end of the bowl game was shameful. Sure, Nix did it- but Shannon is the head coach. However, make no mistake, as the mother of a son who plays football, this whole Marve thing would make me pause before letting my son go to UM. I am a Um grad and have always loved my Canes- but this was mishandled.

Taken from a Dan Wetzel article:

Shannon deserves special scorn and extra analysis by potential Hurricane recruits because of the outrageous breadth of the provisions.

Waandy will not make it.....He is truly not smart enough to coach at a high level.

Hey Hurricanes1:

Guess what dude. We all knew about the "contact issue". Marve's HS coach implicated his idiot self. Where have you been?

The FHSAA and the NCAA announced they were looking into the "contact" issue while Miami was in San Fran. UM knew, why do you think RM was left behind? Why do you think the RM camp fired the first public salvo? Because they were found out. This is typical of guilty parties.

But, most importantly there is no PR issue with UM or RS. Just a screwed up lackey reporter trying to make a name for himself.

(Hurt recruiting, ya, three more guys that were thought to go else where - have put THE "U" at the top of their list)

This happens ever year at every school. And only when a bunch of egoistical parents, HS coaches and lackey reporters get involved do things ever go public.

But, anyone that has followed this program for any length of time loves this type of thing. It has always worked in UM's favor. It has consistently run off the self centered recruits and flipped those recruits that come to realize they "are a Canes Centered recruit".

So, Hurricanes1, educate yourself if your going to be a real Canes Fan. Otherwise go back to were you came from )the Gators or FSU) we don't want or need you or your type here.

Go Canes!

Letter to Mike and Not a Shannon fan:

Thanks for the help. Especially you "Not a Shannon fan", we really appreciate "turn Coats" like you. But, we don't want your kind here, just stay there and continue working against UM from the inside.

Anything that helps Randy leave UM is good. Our recruiting classes have suffer since he arrived.

Also, we have two guy's that want to transfer to UM, but UrbanM ain't letting'em go ANYWHERE.

RM was just restricted to few schools, why - for illegally contacting schools during the season. I don't want him. He's like you, Not a Shannon fan. A turn coat. A traitor.

Funny how we at UF don't get bad press for this stuff. We have some criminal problems too. But you won't here about it until after we win another ring in a few days.

I guess it's no wonder, with the ignorant turn coats at UM that love to hate their own school.

So, please stay there and continue to disrupt the program at UM, run Randy out - we need the gator 's recruiting to improve, but with RM there we're getting killed.

About the article written; can't win for loosing. Shannon comes in and cleans up the program, ie athletes that don't get in trouble. When they do he comes down hard on them. SO when one of them wants to get out that is what makes news. Nowhere in that article was mentioned how Marve missed class and was the starter for 11 games. It's like this, athlete gets in trouble, miami is blamed for it. Athlete does some behind the back school-shopping while on the team after getting suspended, miami is to blame for it.

Gatorsforever: You're only going for your THIRD RING? Too funny...this tiny, private university with an enrollment of just about 14,000 has FIVE, and you're going for your THIRD?
Don't make us laugh...by the time you get your 4th, we'll have six...by the time you get your 5th...we'll have eight...and so on and so on.
Enjoy the fact that the BCS is FLAWED, cuz the TRUE CHAMPION, make no mistake, IS UTAH. They proved it last night, beating an Alabama team CONVINCINGLY, in New Orlean, where UF struggled to get by them...
So, thank your LUCKY STARS for UCLA upsetting USC two years ago, and UTAH not being considered for the national championship.
P.S...this is CANES COUNTRY...remember that!!

Robert Marve situ is finish. Here's what importaint for next season. Bryce Brown Period. 6'2 215lbs, 4.35 in the 40. He's what we've been missing in the last couple of years. Jacory Harris will have a huge year if we get him. Very few backs have come along in the last couple of years with his size and speed. He's Lamar Miller and Mike james in one. If our defense improves and our offense can average over 21 points a game he is the difference between what we'll have and what we did not have this year. Craig Cooper will still play plenty, for Javaris James it looks pretty bad which is why he is looking to see if he can get drafted in the NFL. JJ needs to come in with huge improvements if he is going to keep BB from starting. Lets cross our fingers this is a huge get for us. Remember this post if we do or don't get him.

Why do Canes fans keep living in the past with the five rings thing?

Dude, what have you done lately? Alabama has won 12 National Titles (1925, 1926, 1930, 1934, 1941, 1961, 1964, 1965, 1973, 1978, 1979, 1992), but I ask the Crimson Tide the same thing I ask Miami: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?

As far as I can tell both teams lost miserably, while Florida is playing for another National title (the second in three years) to go with their back-to-back basketball titles.

The Gators are the only team in NCAA history to hold the football and basketball crystal in the same year.

Again I ask, what have you done lately?

We did it with Football and Baseball in 2001.

Hey dd, we seem to control the media better.

We don't get bad press when we deserve it.

If U new what was going on here, criminality, transfer requests being denied totally. And they just want to go to one place - THE U.

U guys get screwed when U don't.

But, look the guy that runs this blog, Manny, he's an FIU guy. He's not going to contradict the fact-less report by the yahoo lackey. He should but he won't. He's a journalist, and let's face it journalism is dead in this country. It's not about truth, it's about "what" or "who" they like, period.

Run Randy Out Help Gators Recruiting!

Manny, any news on an OC?

Bryce Brown U.S. Army high school player of the year.

I look forward to watching Tebow play in Winnepeg. It will be a short drive for me..

Any player should be able to transfer to any school for any reason, period. Anything else is simply evil and those supporting bans will be going to hell, they are not human.

God Bless Dan Wetzel!!!! Thanks Dan for the great blog!!
