ACC releases statement regarding Miami Hurricanes and the NCAA investigation

The ACC released the following statement from commissioner John Swofford on the NCAA's case against Miami:

 "We are supportive of Miami's continued efforts to work with the NCAA on bringing resolution to this case. Miami's cooperation throughout this process should be commended and they have self-imposed significant sanctions. They've been forthright and diligent in their efforts to fully cooperate with the NCAA and it's time for this case to be brought to closure."

Did they say anything new? How about making a statement like , we agree with the UM President is correct in saying sanctions should not be any more than has been occurred.

So again, here we go, this staff is irritating, we offering some safety out of Virginia but we not offering chad wilson from University services, lol, that's pathetic. No disrespect to them Virginia boyz but al, you in Miami, how is it that we can find a safety all the way in Virginia but can't find a safety right down the street in Miami. goldie's "core values" crap is hindering our recruiting. If he don't like the guys from Miami/South Florida, than roll out, nobody wants a headcoach here that's going to be this judgemental on the players down here.

He's being real judgemental prior to the players coming in, and once they get here, he's being real judgemental which is why we keep seeing all these guys getting suspended or kicked off the team for simple things that are normally handled in house.

So now we'll see what thee excuse is come next recruiting class if these asteroids don't blow us up before than!

They kinda did Eddie by highlighting the significant self imposed penalty part. It seems like more and more everyone is jumping on board backing Miami with this one partly sure to the NCAA screw up and partly due to part of there being none of the more damming allegations claimed by the Yahoo report. Either way, Go Canes!

Calvin, shut up.

Sincerely,

Everyone other than Gallo


That titanic failure of a coach and your boyfriend, Randy Shannon, is not coming back. While I agree with you about D`Onofrio, you chop Golden down at every chance you get. He's done a great job all things considering. A real Canes would want, Go Canes.,

AG is judgemental to the poor players?

How about being disciplined and laying down his laws like a BOSS?

Thats what this program needed after the soft program Shannon ran and put out the softest players The U has ever had.

Go OG AG

And Go Canes!!!

Hammer meet nail. Post right on point WestCoast.

Something not to be missed in everything is that Golden is moving away from some of the self imposed recruiting numbers that were set in place earlier. Do you need anymore proof of how confident the Canes are about this being behind I'd now? Go Canes.

Donna and cane lawyers Mark is going to load the box on infrection ruling people only ones will be pro NCAA and Mark E mmert, Miami will never get a fair judgement, I think Attourney General needs to intervene mark is trying railroad Miami and not give them a fair shake since he has been exposed for a liar and deceptive person. He is trying to save his job and reputation but its to late the coachs and colleges will call for complete revamp to avoid these kind of mishandled mess. Must show proof and hard evidence not the word of a criminal, thats the law in this country.

People nationally generally hate UM but they hate the NCAA more. Cote is right: the NCAA has made Miami a sympathetic figure.

Last thought I promise. To your point Calvin, could Golden be using this as a message to local kids here we're done with the theatrics? You ARE with us or you are NOT! About time we started serving notice that we're not a backup plan.

I said when the report first came out that it was going to be no big deal. That yahoo report had to many things that just couldn't be verified. You can't prove who paid for the food that the players might have eaten and you can't prove who actually ate the food that was paid for. You also can't really prove that the players didn't pay for their own food as well that they might have eaten, Unless you got real video evidence.

Yeah, we can all say we were at the same restaurant and the logic of "he paid for everything" can be deduced, but deducing doesn't mean you have proof, just means you might have decent logic. Anyway, the nc2a seems like they don't need proof, just need heresay to come down with sanctions, pathetic. They got the right school though, to many fighters in Miami and shalala being late to the party is ready to throw down too.

Shannon was a good recruiter and a decent defensive coordinator, but was a horrible head coach.

He was a terrible game day coach who could not make adjustments as the game wore on. He was poor at developing players and getting them into condition. He basically lacked the skills to be a big time head coach. His short-comings as a head coach are proven in that he has not been offered another head coaching position since he was fired from Miami.

Arkansas only employs him as a linebacker coach & South Florida recruiter. Those functions are the appropriate ones for him. I would not mind seeing him in a similar role with the Canes. However, as a head coach he was very limited and it turns out most major college programs feel the same way.

Seems that the NCAA is backing away from the stance of "Miami is guilty and we got them" after Donna released the 'Canes statement.

Flowery adjectives are great, but what does that have to do with the LOI that was issued.

Do they walk away, or face more negative PR and become the Laughing Stock of sports fans who are now seeing straight through their agenda..

It has passed the time of turning back..They are all in, so do they walk on what is on the table, or do they pile on with more sanctions?.....
NCAA cut your losses....
Enough is enough.
Go 'Canes

If that's what he thought, that's a bad move, because people are not going to look at it that way, plus, goldie and his 13 & 11 record doesn't justify pulling that tactic right now. It was an unecessary move. Now i will say this, him giving alot of these schalorships to the out of state guys would go more to that point but you don't pull a schalorship at the last minute from a school where you're trying to get what seems like one of the better defensive players in matthew thomas, when kirkland is one of his best friends, just not a smart move no matter how people try and justify it.

The argument of, "we don't need o-linemen" and this and that has nothing to do with the point of disrespect. muschamp can pull schalorships because he's a coach that was 1 win away from playing for the national championship game in his 2nd year. Yeah they lost to louisville, but they still ended up 11 & 2 so him pulling a schalorship is justified. You don't here highschool coaches going at muschamp like that because it's obvious powell was bs'ing muschamp and crew and furthermore, but more importantly, wasn't no other top notch recruits muschamp and company were recruiting from the same school, you just don't do that.

It's one thing for the fans to try and spin it to make it look positive, but when you got coaches pissed off because goldie said one thing to them but did another, who's more important. HAving james coley here should help out alot. goldie's biggest problem is, he only wants to offer alot of schalorships to the kids that come to camps and that's not going to work alot of the times down here. So a guy like mackensie alexander got ignored, because they kept trying to get that man to camp.

Everybody not going to no camps or can afford to go to these camps no matter how low goldie lowered the prices. Alot of kids havn't been out their neighborhoods and asking somebody to come all the way from the muck and than pay a camp fee, right now goldie doesn't understand how hard that is for alot of players. These are situations that never use to be a problem.

So goldie has to clean up alot of things which is why him bringing in mario and coley made sense, but none of this is going to matter if goldie doesn't start winning games in dominant fashion like we're use to winning. Getting blown out in games against k st. & notre shame and letting Fsu pull away, that's not a sign we're heading in the right direction.

Presiding over the 117th ranked defense in college football, that's not heading in the right direction. goldie is no idiot when it came to him analyzing the situation, after the investigation hit, goldie stayed because that will give him more job security to a certain extent, got a contract extension out of it for one, got his boy 117th more money for what, i don't know, but now with this situation in the process of coming to an end, goldie is still going to have to show he can coach.

Right now, 13 & 11, i'm not seeing the signs that he's a coach that can run a dominant type football team. We've seen the muschamp affect on the gaytors, they might be playing offense, but they're definitely playing defense.

Right now, the only goldie affect i see on this team is players getting kicked off and suspended for things that should be taken care of in-house!

@Calvin - you're an idiot

As for the ACC, that is the PR way of saying "f*ck the NCAA, we're in Miami's corner". They don't just represent Miami though, they represent all the ACC schools, so they can only go so far in pissing off the whole institution.

shannons recruits were better....his stats were better and his relationship with the players was better....that cant be denied, I have all the stats.

shalala is a fool...she has no idea what ncaa has....she is totally responsible for UM conduct and oversight....she poses with shaprio holding investor money.....she will bring more heat on UM....all the dirty laundry will be exposed with supplemental credit card reciets, phone records, pictures and new testimony given under oath....what a fool

what is her end game here....she will ultimately get removed by the board if and when more of this expodes....so I guess what she is doing is a good thing.....please sue ncaa....love to see you being deposed and examined under oath....that should be fun watching the ncaa lawyers carve you up....

Show me where shannon was a horrible coach...

2010 - randy shannon

total offense - 5499 yards / 44 TD's - #31 rank
total defense - 4203 yards / 37 sacks for 241 yrd loss / 16 INT's - #22 rank

2011 - golden

total offense - 4533 yards / 41 TD's - #70 ranked
total defense - 4319 yards / 23 sacks for 118 yrd loss / 6 INT's - #45 ranked

2012 - golden

total offense - 5282 yards / 45 TD's - #36 ranked
total defense - 5837 yards / 13 sacks for 86 yrd loss / 11 INT's - #116 ranked

this is what we got after we fired shannon...be careful for what you wish for....

hire butch....a proven winner at UM....the area coaches LOVE him....with change the UM narrative and he will hire a top DC

......nah, it is too easy to bash you, Gallo.

You are the low hanging fruit. The leftover pizza. The discount shirts no one wants at the fire sale rack.

What a loser.

yes I know.....stats have a funny way about themselves...hard to find excuses, lol

see its simple....shannon gave golden a hot babe....golden didnt know what to do with her....she wanted to go to LIV.....he was too busy playing pac man, fixing his glasses and wondering why pens were leaking in his pocket.....

Forget Shannon.

When I think of Shapiro in jail, watching this whole thing fall apart, I laugh. This istprobably the last thing he has in his life.

Much to do about nothing.
U girls are so funny. Since when is it up to the accused to determine the punishment?

How can Shalala say " we have suffered enough", please no more leave us alone. Give me a break.
Your mistake was to self impose, you should have waited and taken your lumps like others before you.
There's a ton of evidence, tons of coaches are involved, over such a long period of time.
A picture paints a thousand words: Donna at the bowling alley with the check.
Please stop making fools of yourselves.
You are guilty, not the NCAA.

We need to just get past all this. Suing the NCAA is foolish, since it would give them the subpoena power they've lacked thus far. Who wants Wilfork, Magahee and whoever else spilling their guts at this point in time under oath. Public opinion is meaningless at this point. Let's take the hit and move on already.

@ Calvin it's been over a decade since we were relevant. So please stop with "Our winning ways" comments as if it was a few years ago"! AG is building a solid program his way and most of us see what hes doing positively. Randy was a favorite of mine... but he didn't get the job done with the talent he had. Players never played up to their potential under Randy because he didn't know how to get it out of them.

Golden has done more with less by far. His last 3 classes were ranked 2011= ?,2012= 8 & 2013= 15... 8 players from a 40th ranked 2011 class are major contributors today...
5 are solid starters.
Now that's coaching...IMO And he's walked away from 3 post season games since arriving. Randy couldn't and didn't get that type of production from his 3 star players, his 4 & 5 star players never developed to there full potential. Golden has already proven he can coach these kids up... I really cant wait to see what that 2012 class is going to look like, now that they got a full year under their belts.

AG will be fine..

Stop wasting your life douchebag, no one here believes you're a Miami fan, everyone knows you're the UF troll who "disappeared" as soon as jim gallo started posting

Does Gallo know what Mark Twain said about statistics (assuming that idiot Pig knows who Mark Twain was):

"There are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics."

sick and tire: finalllyyyyyyy someone gets it. exactly....let is go, move on. quiet is the best move right now....let ncaa save face...it will come back to UM in much less penalties if any. no only will they subpeona the whole world...but all that testimony given in federal court will all come back in except this time all those witnesses will be called back plus much more.....plus what in the world can UM sue for? the independent review said no laws were broken....the bankruptcy process was not violated at all....so what could UM sue for..bad press?, lol

The NCAA is standing on one leg after this blew up in their face. UM needs to go after them with all political, legal and financial resources and bring them down.
Shapiro lied and stole 900 million from educated,prominent people and he is doing the same to the NCAA. They are basing their case on the word of this convicted con-artist.
All the member institutions know that the NCAA is a farse, but no one has the balls to challenge them. Forget about what ifs? lets go after them with all guns blowing and let the truth come out either way. Sue theme, bring it to a Congressinal hearing or whatever it takes. Trust me the NCAA wants nothing to do with that.
UM will be heralded more in the anals of intecollegiate history for shaking up the NCAA than any championship the we may win.

Gallo and Calvin

Putting up irrelevant post after irrelevant post...

Shannon, Butch...

Talk about stuck in the past.

You dummies won't get what u want. Because AG is gonna win big for us. Already won us the ACC Championship. NC in 2014.

The only way Golden leaves Miami is when he wins championships and gets offered a bigger gig someplace else.

Once Miami sends in the letter, states all the penalties given
2 bowl bans
1 acc title ban
suspended football and bball players in 2011
restitution
less home visits this yr
19 with 5 early enrolles this year totaling 14 schollies for the 2013 class meaning self imposed 11 banned scholarships.

3 YEARS OF NEGATIVE RECRUITING WHICH WAS LIKE HOME JAIL----

THats almost what Penn state got 4 covering up child molestation for 12 years. Geesh.

Shannon was a good recruiter and a decent defensive coordinator, but was a horrible head coach.

He was a terrible game day coach who could not make adjustments as the game wore on. He was poor at developing players and getting them into condition. He basically lacked the skills to be a big time head coach. His short-comings as a head coach are proven in that he has not been offered another head coaching position since he was fired from Miami.

///////////////////////////////////

As far as shannon goes, let's be clear, alot of what's said about shannon has alot to do with him being a first time headcoach, so some things were expected. But the argument that shannon's football teams weren't in shape, if that was Tru, and it might have been, but those "so called" out of shape shannon teams played way better defense than these "so called" great shape goldie teams, so that argument holds no weight when it comes to that.

Also, people like to hold shannon responsible for the blow-out losses in his first year when he had kyle & kirby and only darnell jenkins as a real go to receiver. Was left with no real talent to work with, the players shannon had in his first year 2 years, only 1 got drafted, spendcer sdkins.


When people say players didn't develop under shannon, that's a flat out lie. Once shannon got here, from year 3 up until now, players started getting drafted again, all the players that have gotten drafted or became free agents(sam shields going to db was because of shannon) and are productive in the nfl were all from the shannon regime. People try and distort the facts by saying coach goldie had more 1st round picks at temple than shannon had while at UM. Well it took goldie 5 years to get a 1st round pick.

shannon is the one who built the talent levels back up at UM where the fans expected to win games again against everybody. He might not have gotten a 1st round pick but he got a 2nd round pick and 3rd round picks, each year he was here the draft levels started going up. So eventually he would've gotten a 1st round pick. Also, had shannon and lovett been here, the defensive guys would've played even better so we might gotten soemone inthe first round.

When people say shannon didn't develop players, ask yourself this, the players drafted while shannon was here and the players that went to the nfl under coach goldie, who has the most productive players in the nfl. goldie and crew had a guy drafted in the 2nd round that almost wasn't in the nfl right now, he did get cut from the team that drafted em in his first year.

Another thing is, shannon could have easily been a d-co at several schools, but none of those schools wanted to cover the amount of money UM owed him in order for him to start coaching again without losing that. He's basically a linebackers coach by choice and it's obvious he's not going to get offered headcoaching jobs that quick when he was a first time headcoach and got fired from UM, but people know his hands were tied and he'll more than likely be a headcoach again somewhere if he choose to, but if you know shannon, that lime-light stuff is not his thing, he could careless about being the headcoach, because that puts him back in the spot light, he did for his alma mater though because it was needed, but all that snoozing up to booster crap, he could careless about.

Which as most know now is what helped to save UM from even more scrutiny. This is why that troll allowing guys like kehoe, soldinger, heargraves and than shannon to be fired by incompetents and she signed of on it, especially shannon, in the meantime she holding up a booster check. The same one shannon had to fight with them over not seeing.

So at least for those who don't like shannon for whatever reason, you still need to tell the Truth on the man.

Gallo loves the abuse.

He likes taking it hard from behind. His retarded nephew Calvin serves that purpose.

asking questions under oath when witnesses have been changing their storys and lying during "interviews" is not something a court will frown upon....however if you think its not fair....you have options, just sue...then subpoena all the people the ncaa talked too and expose all their "lies" that you think hurt you. then ask the court for damages against the ncaa.

get in the ring and mix it up....dont yell from the stands like a pu...sy. but remember the ncaa can counter-sue for damages as well....if you want to risk that...do it

WOW!

Yo Cane Trash

Yo little spurned sissies
NCAA gave U the NOA
Ur response to is is so dUmb
Like, " U messed up the investigation, we already punished ourselves, just go and leave us poor saps be"
And then all the tough clUcks come out with sue the NCAA and Shalala go get them
And we have public opinion on our side
And all kinds of B.S. that don't mean a thing

Yo have to say Gallo is correct but U chUmps hate him so much Ur blind to notice the truth.

".you have options, just sue...then subpoena all the people the ncaa talked too and expose all their "lies" that you think hurt you. then ask the court for damages against the ncaa."

Yeah little dUmmies, sue
Have all the former players, who r guilty, subpoena to tell their story.
Have Wilfork under oath and he will have to tell the truth about the Escalades, cash and all other freebies he took
Then U have Sean Allen tell the truth that had to be thrown out cause it was "tainted"
U bunch of dUmmies
U r guilty
take the punishment and move on
All this talk of lawsuits and appeals will only prolong Ur pain
In the end U still have to pay

Yo I hear Golden Retriever signed another TE
What a genius! 7 TEs
No DT
But 7 TEs, countless WRs and RBs
No DTs
#117 ring a bell?
Meanwhile most of the offensive coaches have bolted
Lost the OC, the WR coach and the RB coach
then lost Mario, the new TE coach
Who's gonna coach all the TEs now
I know who
Donofrio will
Most of the TEs will be used on defense
Golden Retriever has a plan

Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!

Also shark, you said shannon was a "decent defensive coordinator" lol, you fail to mention he won the broyles award as the top coordinator in college football, if he's decent than you're a hard man to impress, but i guess you're going to say the same tired thing that people say "well shannon was coaching butch players" and if so, so was greg schiano, but when shannon stopped coaching the butch recruited players, he still kept a top 10 defense around.

Do you actually see goldie who keeps trying to promote and sell his boy/clown 117th off to a community of nothing but football minds who know what defense looks like and how to use athletes. He got his boy oach OH-NO in the weight room trying to build guys into square blocks instead of training them to their strengths and speed/We're going to be one of the slower defenses in the acc with this defensive football philosophy goldie and his boy has.

goldie says when speaking of al groh "he's one of the best defensive minds coaches i know of and has taught him the most in his 18 years of coaching" well guest what, that guy got fired, you know why, Georgia Tech's defense was trash but the worst part about it, they were trash but statistically, we were worst than them.

So if goldie is still leaning on the defensive knowledge they picked up from groh, it's going to be never that we began to play dominant defense.

Exactly, for those saying sue the nc2a, it's funny, that's why alot of us was pissed off from the beginning when this troll president let the nc2a come walking in with open arms. I was pissed off & laughing hearing goldie say "we told our players to just be honest" i knew than this guy was naive. Than they got mad at aldarius johnson for not telling on himself just because all of the other players did that got suspended, aldarius kept it goon style and got rail roaded by goldie.

You don't open the school up with open arms to those bozo's thinking they're going to be like "ok Miami, you've been one of the most open and respectful to the process schools we've ever had, ok, we'll just slap you on the wrist" that was foolish thinking from the get go, because the way those rednecks think, they Hate Miami for 1, than for 2, they wouldn't want other schools thinking all they have to do is cooperate like Miami did and they'll get off with a wrist slap too.


But people forget that's the reason UM paid that 80K so that former players wouldn't have to be subpoenaed, that's the real problem about suing.

So we lost bowl games & players, practices and if we sue, 80K. This is the main reason troll shalala is coming out strong, and crying out to the wilderness because she knows that she can win the sympathy and scorn thru public opinions but in a real court of law, this case would take at least another year or so.

gallo said it for along time, "should've played the acc championship game".

This investigation is bigger than what it seems, they don't want Miami to be relevant that way they can keep most of our top players in sec country, meaning the gaytors an the other sec schools.

The sanctions don't hide the fact that clown 117th can't coach or that goldie keep saying he can though.

That's a great point that groh got fired mid season. The high second round pick name was Jaquan jarret for the Philadelphia eagles who had been scouting him for a while. He was cut in the beginning of a second year contract of three years. They had seen enough. Shannon should have fired mark garbage a@@ whipple after the first play of the ostate games. What doomed Shannon was not having streeter on the field the whole time. I feel that Shannon was hog tied but the point is he still did not produce. The problem i have with this regime is that they are doing the same types of things on defense that whipple did on offense and we are supposed to give him a pass because of sanctions and what not. Great golden has done a great job leading Us through this. However I am concerned with the fact that we have a defense ranked at the bottom and has dlineman covering quick outs and covering tailbacks in the flats. I have seem just as many mismanagements of timeouts critical coaching errors. That is what I'm concerned about that we don't have a dominant defense and I don't want to hear that young excuse. These players are players regardless of their youth. If these players can get kicked off for not following the rules ect ect. Then the dc needs to be held accountable for this atrocious defense coordinator play calling and philosophy. Unless that's what ag wants its unacceptable and we may have a good team and record next year due to our not so impressive schedule. I want to see some coaching and good schemes that match our players ability. Go canes

DON'T LIKE SHANNON! FINE HE'S GONE NOW LET'S SUPPORT GOLDEN BECAUSE HE IS THE COACH RIGHT NOW, HOWEVER IF HE DOES NOT WIN 10 GAMES THIS YEAR THAN THE EXCUSES MUST STOP AND HE IS NOT THE COACH FOR THIS PROGRAM. LOOK AT THIS SCHEDULE: FAU S.FLA,SAV.ST, DUKE, GA.TECH,VIRGINIA,VA.TECH,NC, WAKE FOREST, PITT, FLA/FLA.ST. OTHER THAN THE TWO FLA SCHOOLS WHO WILL BE SUCH A BIG FAVORITE AGAINST THE CANES? THE OFFENSE RETURNS PRACTICALLY EVERYONE EXCEPT MIKE JAMES AND HE'S ALREADY REPLACED WITH THE BEST OFFENSIVE THREAT IN THE COUNTRY. ON DEFENSE EVEN THOUGH WE RETURN A LOT OF PLAYERS WHO WERE YOUNG LAST YEAR, IF THEY ARE NOT BETTER DEVELOPED FROM LAST YEAR THERE WILL BE A GAME WHERE WE LOSE THAT WE HAVE NO BUSINESS LOSING! THAT IS GOLDEN JOB TO SEE THAT THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN ESPECIALLY SINCE HE HAS CHOSEN NOT TO MAKE CHANGES ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE. THE TWO STOOGES(DUNNO & FRANKLIN) MUST SHOW THEY CAN DO THERE DAMN JOBS WAY BETTER THAN LAST YEAR OR A 9-3/8-4 RECORD WILL BE THE RESULT WHICH IS UNEXCEPTABLE FOR CANE FANS. THIS IS YEAR 3, THE NCAA THING IS PRACTICALLY OVER, AND THE CANES HAVE PLENTY OF TALENT. NOW LET'S SEE WHAT TYPE OF COACH GOLDEN IS. I WANT HIM TO SUCCEED BUT HE STUCK WITH THE 2 STOOGES AND IF IT COST HIM A GAME OTHER THAN FLA/FLA.ST THAN GOLDEN MUST GO. HE GETS A PASS AGAINST THE GATORS/SEMINOLES ONLY BECAUSE HE HAD A DISADVANTANGE IN RECRUITING IN THE STATE WITH THE NCAA BULLCRAP ! SO YES SHANNON IS GONE BUT IF GOLDEN IS THE MAN THAN THE EXCUSES ARE OVER AND THESE FANS WANT A 10/11 WIN REGULAR SEASON AND A SHOT AT ACC CHAMPIONSHIP! HE HAS THE TEAM TO DO IT BUT CAN HE COACH THEM! WE WILL SEE! GO CANES! ACC 2013 CHAMPS

Get a job Calvin or jump off the bridge or go play with Gallo on the hiway

Imagine what keyhoe could have been doing with Kirkland. I'm all about dominant lineman because you win in the trenches and not on the periphery. Doing Kirkland right was more about Thomas even if Kirkland didnt come here. That was all Thomas needed to see. I still can't understand G. Paul's situation we needed as many experienced players we can get since the dc has us playing and unnatural defense to these kids. keyhoe and Fisch were the reason for any success al golden has had here. He will not have Fisch and has an unproven oc to go along with a inept dc. That is what I'm worried about. I beleive that we should have a very good oline with some good weapons that will win us some games. Do we have a defense that can win some of those games like the ones notre dames defense won. Defense wins championships.

tallyCane, great post dawg, when i see somebody that had the same sick WTF is this feeling in their stomach as i did when that 1st offensive play was called, i know immediately i'm good company than. I wanna to slap the crap out of nipple for calling that stupid play, that was even worst than have j70 under center with, empty backfield, coem on man.

I was pissed but what was funnyis, ohigho fake didn't even use a timeout, once they saw o-linemen standing out wide they started laughing themselves and the next play was dumber than that play, the pass to berry where all he could do was run straight to the sidelines, than of course the interception since nipple had all our receivers running the same depth on routes.

You said it perfectly when you said "this regimeis doing the same types of things on defense that nipple did with our offense"

I have to disagree, even a nipple "purposely" sabtoge offense wasn't this bad as our defense. At least if clown 117th had the same relationship that shannon & mark nipple had, than at least we'd have a legit reason as to why the defense was this atrocious(i just saw that u used the same word describing this defense, lol.)

You seeing the same things, when you talking about defensive philosophy's, that's the main reason they keep calling for d-tackles to go out and cover the flats, is because back in the old days and even now with some of the big 10 teams, they're use to having those big slow lumbering backs where a d-tack can actually out-run or keep up with em, so that use to and had to have worked over their at some time, but even in the big 10 now they're trying to make sure they have speed backs now.

What defensive coach in their right mind is going to call that scheme, the sad part is, it never gav us an advantage or made a play for us and still kept calling it, he's out of his league and that's not going to change.

I know you remember after games last year all you kept hearing from clown 117 was, "well they did alot of things different this game than what we saw on tape"

As if other teams were cheating or something by doing, i knew than this guy don't belong here. Of course teams are going to upgrade their schemes. I think eventually goldie must of got to em and told em it's not a good look to keep saying that to the public.

I'm surprised somebody hasn't swung on em yet. We need that walk on back who cracked ojomo in the jaw, he'll handle oach OH-NO.

t.k. swan, at one point, they said only 1 starter wasn't coming back, i'm not sure of that now since goldie keeps kicking people off the team if that's true now or not.

They're on the verge of getting rid of eddie johnson all because they can't handle a guy who likes to mix it up from time to time with teammates and get his eyes a lil red from time to time. They got dequan ivery on deck to be kicked off next to as well, along with rashawn scott too. Seems to me like if you're a rising sophmore on defense, you end up on the chopping block for some strange reason.

I'll say this again, if firing goldie is the only way we can get rid of clown 117th than i'm all in. I can't take seeing us play this type of defense for 3 years in a row. That coward's defensive scheme has to go. Our db's keep playing 10 & 15 yards off the line as if every team we play has megatron playing wideout for them.
