Trust me on this one guys, canes will be in a BCS Bowl

Hey AG is on tour.

Gallo and Calvin should go and explain to coach how to win a title.

Their brilliant football IQ would blow away AG that he'll quit immediately and ask Donna Shalala to make Gallo headcoach and Calvin the AD... of peewee football.


Agreed westcoast.

Would love to see Calvin and cane 72 sit there and talk "schemes" with a coach who played the game, and has coached the game.

Anybody who calls football " the game" is an IDIOT.

Yo Cane T, you are 5 th in line.
Just got in, checked the MH for i on the u, and there you are ...

I am now convinced that you are not a troll but a 'Cane fan in drag... Colon was right.. you know way too much and live on this site everyday. Faking it.
Go 'Canes

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 07th, 2013...It's gonna be a shocker for all you big mockers, the day of reckoning! This team is very, very deep in talent on both sides of the ball. They're baaaaaaaccckkkk. THE U

gallo, here we go, "bath salts" johnson just went on vacation:

### UM linebacker Eddie Johnson continues to hurt his chances of getting back on the Hurricanes football team. Johnson has left school, at least temporarily, and is not enrolled this semester, UM tells us.

Johnson, who was third on the team with 59 tackles and had a team-leading 7.5 tackles for loss, remains on indefinite suspension. UM people are highly skeptical about his chances of being reinstated, though Al Golden has not ruled it out. His missteps include tardiness, not showing up and other violations.

This is pathetic, seems like goldie only cuts defensive players, they want to be able to keep using the young excuse on defense, had we gotten mike leach in here would've been better off. It's a definite conspiracy against the football team. They don't want Miami to be strong and dominant again in football and looks like goldie has signed on with them. They're trying to do everything they can to shut this gateway to success down for sure for alot of guys who would not have be given this opportunity in this day in time.

Just think, goldie would've cut a whole lot of guys from the 80's, 90's and the 2000's, he keeps doing his best job of shaving the physical guys and the tuff mental guys off the team, we see what's going on, all in the name of protecting his boy oach "cry baby" OH-NO. If you stay quiet they'll keep you on the team, if you speak out, they think they know more than the players on the field because they're coaches.

You can fool alot of people but eventually the Truth will began to show on whether goldie can coach or not, shannon was 12 & 12 in his first 2 years excluding a bowl lost to California. goldie in his 1st 2 years is only 1 win better than shannon, although he had way more talent left to him than shannon did in 2007 & 2008. Plus goldie has 5 years of headcoaching experience prior to coming to UM, so why is this team at this slow pace!

Anybody else feel like it's Ground Hog Day reading Calvin's post?

Who is "they"?

And WTF do you mean Golden shouldn't have had this much time, he's been much better than Randy Shannon in the first two years.

If Eddie Johnson doesn't show up for practice or can't show up to practice on time then he should be suspended. You have to be accountable to your coaches and your teammates. If you think that you're bigger than the team than go play for Calvin Gallo Community College.

C'mon Gallo, tell us all that it is Al Golden's fault that Eddie Johnson is not atending classes, doesn't show up for 'TEAM' training sessions or is tardy for scheduled 'TEAM' events and numerous other 'TEAM' violations, despite warning after warning after warning not to mention him being suspended from the team hoping this stunner would get the kids attention.

UM people are highly skeptical about his chances of being reinstated, though Al Golden has not ruled it out (Al keeps trying to rehabilitate the kid, although it is now apparent that everyone else familiar with Eddie's behavior have long since thrown the towel in on this kid). His numerous missteps include tardiness, not showing up and other team violations.


You are right…Calvin and Gallo are the Rain Man twins…Wapner in 10 minutes, Wapner in 10 minutes, Wapner in 10 minutes…Al Golden bad…Al Golden bad…Al Golden bad.

Calvin believes Randy Shannon is a Bill Belichick clone and the moron Gallo is convinced that Butch Davis fresh off of an NCAA blockbuster investigation and having lied his way out of the “U” when he last coached here should immediately replace Al Golden.

Gallo being so fond of citing totally irrelevant statistics to support his ignorant Al Golden thesis will appreciate this…a group of statisticians have concluded that Gallo and Calvin are 100% full of sheet!

Go Canes!

Eddie Johnson leaving is no big deal. Golden has targeted multiple 8th. and 9th. graders from Nigeria, New York and Idaho that will fill his place soon on this already stacked and deep Cane defensive unit.

Maybe he is not goiing to classes because he has seen this all before and he knows he is not being reinstated. Might as well leave.

Tally Cane,

Your screwball deductive reasoning mirrors the dumb and dumber kids, Gallo and Calvin.

It would appear that along with Eddie Johnson, you, Gallo and Calvin didn't attend class.

So, playing along, your argument is Eddie concluded that he would continue doing the very same things that orginally got him suspended, because by doing the right things he would not be reinstated...and in your nether-world that's Al Golden's fault! Wow!!!

The scary part...you are walking around amongst unsuspecting, innocent people.

Farewell Eddie.......let's move on.

According to calvin, its the fault of the world that eddie johnson doesnt attend classes or go to practice

These student athletes. These young men are eefen stoopid. Seriously. Here you have an opportunity to play for the U. An opportunity to o to he NFL. An opportunty to get a $200,0000 education. From a top 40 university. Why would you throw that away?

A dumba55 like that wont make it here or anywhere. Example... Willie williams thomas finnie.

Where willie at?

Who is "they"?

And WTF do you mean Golden shouldn't have had this much time, he's been much better than Randy Shannon in the first two years.

Posted by: Cual? | March 12, 2013 at 07:05 PM

In what area/s!

Maybe ray ray armstrong got kicked off the team because he got caught eating at 112 and not the training table. maybe gionni paul stopped going to class to, so eddie johnson said he'll just go to BETHUNE COOKMAN with thomas finnie, would be good to see gionni end up there too!

Saying coach goldie at this point is a better headcoach than randy shannon is right par and like someone saying the defense improved at the end of the season boston college 441 passing yards, 32 points 537 total yards, vs duke, 432 passing yards, 45 points and 583 total yards agaiinst us, and we're suppose to take yall serious, lol!

Really? Is that the best that you could come up with? Dude, you're generic sense of humor is pathetic. Maybe you should know what you're talking about before you comment. I can agree to disagree with Jim Gallo but at least I can respect his opinion and if he's wrong, he'll come out and say that he made a mistake. You just try to deflect everything to avoid answering the topic.

Maybe you should do more research about why guys are getting kicked off the team before you start blaming the coach for everything. Where was your outrage over Randy Shannon kicking Thearon Collier off the team and not renewing Steven Wesley's scholarship? Ironically, Shannon used their scholarships for late additions to the 2010 class (Seantrel Henderson and Latwan Anderson). I know, it was okay for Shannon to cut loose guys to bring in a couple more but it's not okay when Al Golden does it.

As I have been saying for months, this real life and people have to be held accountable for their actions. Shape up or ship out. Welcome to the real world guys. Try not showing up for work, or being constantly tardy, or disrespectful to your co-workers or supervisors and see how long you last.

I'm still waiting for the reasoning behind G. Paul being kicked off the team. What we do know is that we have a dumb a@@'dc and a coach that is trying to be 120th instead of 117th in total defense. If you want the players to be accountable the coaches must be as well.

JIM, haven't noticed anything different about Calvin's posts.......because I don't read them.

Why would anyone want to waste their time doing that?

CAlvin Golden has been beter in his first two years than Shannon in his first two years in several areas but Iwill name a couple:

Shannon in his first two years



Recruiting (sure we have to use the retroscope:

2007 class, 2008 class

versus the 2010 class and the 2011 class

I guranatee Golden's boys will do better. Better than 9-4, 7-6

Next year the U will go at worse 9-3. At best 10-2 plus a trip the ACCCh game

Take that to the bank

Butyou never answere my questions- Where willie at?, Where J70 at? And why do you call him j70? IS it because of his 70 pick sixes?

don't worry.....golden is not going to last at UM....his defense will bury him

and yes I bought my ticket yesterday...I'll be in NY and will ask golden about all the casualties, the strained relationships with feeder schools and if jim coley will be calling all the offensive plays for 2013

of golden was coach in 1986...there would be no Micheal Irvin, alonzo highsmith, tolbert bain, jerome brown, geroge mira, etc...40 players on that team were arrested that year from assault, shoplifting to fraud....

jimmy did not ask 1 player to leave the team......

everyone wants the old canes of the past but it will never happen with al golden......were are just another temple

Gallo you moronic idiot NOBODY would have Irvin, or Brown, or ANY of those guys if they did what they did then in today's society, NOBODY. That was a different era, how stupid are you? You and Calvin BOTH are clueless, and Calvin if you were a coach you wouldn't even be able to field a team because they'd ALL be in JAIL. What a maroon, lol.

I could care less what the other teams would do....we ran up scores, trashed talked and were bad boys.....the other schools at that time were much less tolerant as a society....that's what made UM unique....

13-11 plus #117 defense in the whole NCAA.....better to have bad boy image than to clean it up.....that dosent work in dade/broward inner city feeder schools....but you keep the faith......9-3, 8-4 maybe a 10-2....but no national championship....but today that dosent matter to UM, not really....btw, what happened to all the former canes on the sidelines and weekly communication within that brother hood...not there anymore.....they have kinda given up on UM in a way.....I can feel it

"I could care less what the other teams would do....we ran up scores, trashed talked and were bad boys.....the other schools at that time were much less tolerant as a society....that's what made UM unique...."

There was a saying in the '80s that Bama fans and maggots had one thing in common...they could live off a dead Bear for years.

Move on. It is a different era. Trash talk, all the stuff that made the Canes of the 80's and early 90's great is over. You are a moron Gallo. A stupid, sick, fruity moron.

Yo Cane trash

Yo the African tour will be announced shortly
Golden Retriever will be in Nairobi looking for some good TEs and WRs. He has a wall U know
Back home he is getting rid of the better defensive players
Got rid of the #2 and #3 tacklers. Who needs to tackle when U got so many TEs?
Who needs D when U r loaded at O
The 7 TEs will play both DT and LB as needed
Golden Retriever has a plan
Can U score more than 50 every game?


Willie Williams was a koker recruit. He calls him J70 because he threw 70 td,s he also threw a lot of picks but so did a good number of UM qb's. in the big game testeverde threw 4 or 5 picks against psu lost the fiesta bowl,Gino three picks against Alabama got crushed in the sugar bowl and kendorsey threw some picks against osu and we lost that too. kendorsey was one my favorite qb and as good as he was he only held clipboards and didnt see the field in the pros and neither did Gino. Gino won the heisman for lobbing the ball up in the air to lamar and cope land and he didnt do anything worth metioning in the league either. I liked Walsh as well be he didnt do anything either. So if you ask where is j70 at then you can ask that about other UM qb's that had a much better supporting cast. We have the softest schedule that I can remeber. What happened to anytime anywhere that the U is known for. Looking at that schedule we should go undefeated fla lost a lot and so did fsu. It will be unacceptable if this team doesn't at least go 11-1.

Canetrash, lets not forget that Golden is also building a wall around Haiti. It's a barbed wire fence actually but that's beside the point.


The 2001 Canes didn't trash talk, and weren't in your face guys like the 80's and 90's teams, they won by working HARDER, FASTER, and SMARTER than the rest. They had a synch, and AG is tryign to find that synch again. He will and after we POUND Canetrash's Gators maybe he'll shut his fat and stupid mouth as well.

The other jim, i'm not sure what questions you think i'm avoiding, but i didn't like collier having to leave the team but shannon did it because it was the best for him to actually get out of Miami at the time instead of ending up in the back of the newspaper, maybe you need to do some research. Of course steven wesley was forced out but he was going into his senior year an non-productive so that move was understandable but the question should be asked to you, are those the only 2 examples you could come up with. You talking to the wrong one when it comes to knowing what's going on with certain players.

It's ridiculous to try and compare being on a football team to the real world. Most people's jobs didn't reach out to them and come begging them to come join them. Next, you're asking players/young men to be aggressive and some people are aggressive by nature so it's being festered on the field but off the field everybody's not going to be able to turn it off and off especially if it was on before they got on the field.

These people who keep copping out saying it's a different society, yeah, it's more of the whimpish pink variety type of society where gays have people scared to speak out/up, lol. That's exactly what's wrong, they want robots not individual personalities, instead of promoting the individual strengths of an individual you got all these marginalized people so as soon as somebody comes around that beats to his own drum these days, they try an crucify em. Turning to the ballsless society. F that, not me, goldie knows he's been coming off real weak, promoting an acc coastal title that's not really his.

What ej44, gionni, ray ray, thomas finnie and them did, if a headcoach can't deal with that situation without using the easy way out, than he's weak minded too. Just imagine what would've happend had hit stick being here an bust shots under goldie, goldie would've tried to escort that man to the stockade himself. For those with the "accountablity" talk, until goldie publicly holds his boy clown 117th accountable, i don't want to hear jack schmitt about what they players did, just coach & manage the team and quit crying.

Coincidence that immediately after you rip Gallo, the alter ego blog Pig "Canetrash" shows up?

Go back through the last several blogs. It happens everytime.

You still suck, blog Pig. You suck from the tip of your poppa's dobulewide to the tips of your momma's beard you sick Pig.

Gallo proves his talents as a revisionist of history time and again. Not worth correcting. Calvin just needs to pack up and move to Arkansas and take care of RS every night. If you ever have attended a urban high school game in Dade/Broward, you always see lots of Calvin's hanging around pontificating as though they know something. These are the talentless guys that hope to become part of a future NFLer's rat pack. Sad, shallow male groupies and it's always about race.

Yo Cane trash

Yo cane pig why U so obsessed with Gallo chUmp?
U even use Gallo as part of Ur many names
Pretty pathetic
Do go back & check the last several blog stories, I haven't posted in any of the past 2 or 3
Not interested in U maggots whining bout the NCAA
Old news, just take Ur punishment, man up and move on

U r the curse of this blog cane pig
All U do is make up nmames and complain bout Gallo, Calvin, Tally, Canefan72 and me
U never say anything bout the football team

Yo I bring in independent insight and perspective bout the team, the program and the coaches
Like Golden Retriever keeps loading up on offensive players when it is the D that needs help

I tell U the sad truth U don't wanna hear
Like U all sUck and Ur D just got worse

I give U a Kool Aid - free summary of what to expect with Ur canes
Like good news clUcks U will win at least 8 games next year
Not because U r any better than last year but just because of the weakest, sorriest schedule in the planet

Can U refute any of that blog pig???
Or U just wanna call people cutesey names
Do U talk football clUck???
U one big looser
Comprende I AM MDC dropout?????

Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!

all you have to do is tell where specifically the stats and history are wrong.....

please advise.....

We won't be pounding any team in the country until we start playing real defense(117th in he nation won't do it). No matter how bad jeff driskel might be, oach OH-NO has a way of making qb's look like heisman contenders. clown 117th's been confusing and clouding up the heisman candidate races since he's been here, it takes people now about 5 games to realize they go from "WHOAH, he did that to Miami, he must be good" to OH, they did that to Miami" how many qb's have run a train on this defense.

The "youth excuse" is pathetic. go an look at what these qb's did against teams like maine, middle tennessee & the citadel, all 3 of these schools must of either had older defenses or better d-co's, either way, "NO EXCUSES"!

If shannon was the headcoach, ej44 would've still be on the team and would've been straight and would've understood earlier the bigger picture. Apparently these type of kids goldie can't reach, so they get the axe. ej44 has a mindset that's about dominating and playing the way we use to do it, like when he got hurt against V-tech, he refused to let himself come out of the game and was giving the V-tech sideline/coaches hell.

Again, what's the point of having alumni around if you not gone let guys like irvin, darrin smith, brett perriman, ray lewis and the likes mentor ej, instead another player gets let off by the wayside!

Why does Montreal Cane hate black people so much? He parades around the Internet impersonating them. It's disgusting lies.


canetrash- your daddy's attempt at flicking that lost drop failed. Epic fail. You were born. Another epic fail. Too bad.

By the way cane fans- Who here disputes that Jim Morris has to go as Miami's baseball coach? If thers has been someone who has worn out his welcome by 5 years its Morris. I think Coker could have used another year or two. Same with Shannon. But Morris, please. Its been down hill for the last 5-6 years, like Lindsey Vonn on a black diamond run.

MORRIS HAS TO GO. SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you TK SWAN stop making excuses and play real football. We should go Undefeated this year with that soft schedule if these coaches can coach!

What happened to the days when we played ostate the first game the third game we played psu and the fifth game fla state. Vtech,gtech,bc and ect,ect. In order to be the best we have to play the best. We should have tried to have notre dame on the schedule this year to repay them for what they did to us the last two years.

I disagree with TK swan.

Miami wins at least 9. 9-3 at worse. 10-2 most likely. Pick your loses. I say FSU and possibly G tech.

last year they lost a couple of close ones. I know they won a couple of close ones as well, so no excuses. The offense is absolutely a blitzkrieg. I bet Dorsett will have the knks worked out and Duke will run for about 1500. Morris will position himself well for the draft, as will Seantrel.

Wins: FAU, UF, Savannas St, USF, Pitt, Wake, UVA, UNC,VT

Guarantee it.

This is how you take care of your players. finie barely got back to the dorm room before he got his pink slip!

A warrant was issued for Jones arrest and an Austin police spokeswoman said Jones was expected to turn himself in later Tuesday. Coach Mack Brown suspended Jones until the case is resolved.

WE scheduled no dame again, they didnt want to do back to back and we had the gators, a top 10 team, as our non conf opp this year after having 2 top 5 teams as our non conf games last year(#1 No Dame, k state)......

The D is going to be an entirely diff unit this year as the DT" are all healthy, johnson or no johnson we have a ton of good young LB's, DE's are good, and the DB's all have espn 150 talent just are young.

I would be upset if worse case is 9-3 , and we play in acc champ game. 10-2 or 11-1 or 12-0 when we play clemson in acc title game.

Miami 35 UFelons 7........

UTrailer failures. Hope someone brings a spit bucket for that low-life plumber Muscrap.


Did not being enrolled come from EJ or Golden?
