VIDEO: Al Golden talks NCAA investigation, scrimmage

CORAL GABLES -- Here's what Al Golden had to tell reporters Tuesday morning amid the NCAA investigation into allegations made by former booster Nevin Shapiro. Video courtesy of Hurricanesports.com

We'll have a transcript up shortly. FYI, players were not made available to the media Tuesday.

A few quick notes from the 15 minutes we got to see from practice:

- Golden said defensive tackle Curtis Porter is healthy and running with the first team despite reports he was hurt in Sunday's scrimmage. 

- Freshman linebacker Denzel Perryman and offensive lineman Jonathan Feliciano were the only players wearing yellow non-contact jerseys. Perryman had a noticeable limp, but participated in drills.

His quote,"Again, we have great kids on this team to the extent that they may have made a mistake. OK, that's fine. But that's also part of growing up. What we have to teach them now is if something did occur, let's be honest and move forward."

Sounds like we are screwed.

Glad to hear that Porter is healthy

"Sounds like we are screwed."


Pig, isn't that what you tell your boyfriend when you guys hit Club Manhole Friday nights?

Fruity warthog.

Since Al Golden has taken command, players have been getting arrested, and now the NCAA is on campus. This did not happen when Shannon was the head coach. Al Golden should be fired, as should the athletic director and Donna Shalala.

More Shapiro allegations are expected to break today. It's going to get very, very, very ugly.

This is going to suck but at least we gots swag

Tweet by blog Pig:

Mmmmmmmmm, Jason, you are such a mans. I am a silly warthog. Stupid too. But I don't have too much free time, you know. Egg beaters and Triscuits are at risk all night and it is my duty to protect them.

Does Trailerville have a Costco or do the trailertrash pick their meals out of the Waste Management buffet?

This kind of garbage hurts a program. And it comes when there has been a positive feeling about where Coach Golden is taking the Canes.
I hope it proves to be just some psychopath looking for a book deal, publicity, reformation of his "image," or whatever, and not a substantive issue. If the latter and we lose scholies and bowl opportunities, a bad burden to lay on Coach, the new kids and the program's future.

Once again, great job by the Herald giving the actual video on here.

Golden sounds confident that it is no big deal. I trust his judgement more that the guy that changes names on here posting the same crazy stuff over and over.

So a couple of backups got a boat ride, and will be suspended for a game. No big loss.

Of course, it tells alot about the ethics of this Shapiro guy that he is in jail, turns on his friends not just by stealing their money, but then by whining to the NCAA when they ignore his book offer.

No money, no freedom, and no friends. This troll and Shapiro have alot in common.

Coach Al Golden on his emotions about the recent allegations: “You can see it on my face that I'm disappointed. I'm more disappointed because of the strides that we had made as a football program and the culture, and understanding how to conduct ourselves in the community.

Sounds like it's going to get bad, real bad.

Uncle Luke,
Have you considered a psychiatric evaluation or an IQ transplant? Come on, man.

In June, federal prosecutors in New Jersey said Shapiro gave "dozens of student athletes" up to $10,000 and other gifts.

Oh boy....never a good sign when the feds are involved.

How in the world is Paul Dee allowed to sit on any NCAA Infraction Committee judging other schools with this going on under his nose? And you thought Kirby Hocutt ran away to west Texas because he couldn't put fans in seats.

Well, Urban Liar ran away to Bristol because he couldn't stand the stench and knew his 7-5 failure would become a 5-7 failure so I guess it works both ways.

"Shapiro has "written" a book but not one publisher has agreed to publish it."

Hmmmm. I have designed a car but not one car manufacturer has agreed to build it.

Garbage. Just like Trailerville.

The statute of limitations has run on all of the players who may have accepted gifts 4 years ago. As far as the current players, it is likely very few since Shannon tried not to let Shapiro around the program. Shapiro has also been in custody since at April of 2010, so he could not have given any gifts from then until now.

Since Shannon was trying to keep Shapiro away from the program, I doubt the NCAA will find lack of institutional control. Whatever few current players may have accepted gifts will be suspended/ineligible. They may have to forfeit some games from 2006-2010. I can't see much more fallout from this.

If the forfeit the OSU game and they already forfeited that - then who really won? Shapiro won.

Who won? Pig, you wake up and have to look at that zitty face in the mirror everyday.

I am not sure who won. But you have definitely lost the game of life.

Loser. Stamp it, you fruity warthog.

Uncle Luke,

No, I have not nor have I ever considered a psychiatric evaluation or an IQ transplant. Not one iota. Such suggestions are absolute ludicrous. Rubbish!

JI2-WE DAMN SURE DON"T NEED ANY MORE FANS LIKE YOU "IF YOU ARE 1".YOU NEED TO QUIT CRYING LIKE SOME LITTLE BITC-H -OH, IT SOUNDS BAD , IT SOUNDS VERY BAD .HOW MANT TIMES YOU GONNA POST THAT .YOU NEED TO GET UP OFF THIS ,AND HEAD ON BACK TO THE FREE SHOES U SITE -TROLL!

Uncle Luke. Who has been arrested, when and for what??

Ramon Buchanan.

I have to say that I wish Coach Golden had taken his own advice and said he was aware of this problem when he was vetting the program before he signed on or shortly after. I knew this has been hanging around the program for about a year, and I'm up here in Atlanta a nobody. There would have been nothing wrong with saying, Yes I was aware this was out there but it has nothing to do with me or our Staff (with the exception of Keho and a few hold overs). So we have been working our goals and waiting for it to play out. That would have been the honest answer, not that this was the first he heard of it.

How in the world is Paul Dee allowed to sit on any NCAA Infraction Committee judging other schools with this going on under his nose? And you thought Kirby Hocutt ran away to west Texas because he couldn't put fans in seats.

Hey gatorsam, why aren't you filling up Gator Clause with your pithy comments? After all, you seem to care more about the Canes than the Gators. You might even be obsessed with all the stuff you post under other IDs here.

Paul Dee earned that job, unlike you, that hasn't even HAD a job in four years. He has watched teams that compete with the Canes cheat left and right, so he has every right to hold that job. And the fact that he is doing an investigation here, shows he is impartial and not beholden to Miami incorrectly, despite your cruel and demeaning false accusations.

BTW, how do you even know who Kirby Holcutt is? you really are obsessed with your Miami Hurricanes, I see...

Uncle Luke. The rest of the questions are left unanswered why??

EVERYONE IS OVER-REACTING....Coach Golden is saying what the NCAA wants to hear...however, keep in mind that the NCAA statute of limitations can only go back four years...NOT TEN YEARS like that scumbag Shapiro is saying...so, if anything did happen, IT MAY HAVE HAPPENED WHEN RANDY WAS THE COACH...so, to all you Randy lovers out there, don't get too smug about RS...!! The NCAA is just doing what they have to do...period. They will not find anything substantial.

Hey umike. Shannon disliked this guy and banned him from campus. Try another line

Mike. PS. It's cokers comment that beats watching.

Manny Navarro:
Looks like more of the ugly stuff will be out soon on #UM. Told players won't be available Wednesday either.

This won't be good...feds are now involved.

The Feds are involved only because of Shapiro's lawbreaking activities. They are looking for the lost money. They could care less about NCAA rule breaking. Breaking NCAA rules has nothing to do with breaking societal laws. What this worm said to the Feds and to the NCAA may or may not be true. I don't see how the Federal investigation will help or hurt the NCAA investigation.

J12=uncle luke

Phuvk the NCAA!!!

Form 4 superconferences & leave the NCAA for your own league with a tournament!!

The time is now for big time college football to split from the NCAA
