wow ray-ray being invited.....no way should he go after golden destroyed his college playing ability....how's idea was that?.....how and why did he get invited?

another optic play by golden I bet....

You are a troll gallo. And japickey is a good qb in your eyes.

F*ck Everybody! Go Canes!

Jim, You are horrible at trolling. That is all.

Golden didn't destroy anything. Mr. Armstrong lied about having dinner with an agent while UM was under investigation for misconduct. What did you want Golden to do? Pat him on the back and say good job bro! It would seem that Mr. Armstrong has owned this situation and is moving forward like any mature Cane would do. I am sure that Ray Ray does not give a crap about how anyone feels regarding him going to work out with his Canes brethren. If you asked him, I bet he would tell you to eat it, bro.

I'm confused...golden permanently banned him from paying at UM....he signed off on that to the NCAA which barred him from playing at Faulkner u.....compete lowered his ability to be drafted in NFL but most importantly had his college scholarship and education yanked by golden.....

If I was his parents I'd tell golden to go f...ck himself and be very public with it.....make him pay for his sons situation since he did nothing wrong.....ray-ray was thrown to the NCAA and sacrificed....via sanctions.....

BS...all he did was have dinner with his girlfriend....she was his girlfriend way before the ncaa investigation....so he lied about it big deal....

Coach Golden could find the cure for cancer, end world hunger and cause world peace, and he would find fault.

You are a maggot, Gallo, you sick Pig.

Gallo - for the sake of all mankind, I hope that you never become a parent.

Real Canes do not need to lie. We are born with the Swagger to tell you the truth to your face no matter how you may feel about it. I think Ray-Ray and Coach Golden are starting to figure this out. The fact that she was his girlfriend made it worse. Note to any college sports players... Do not date Agents, it is a conflict of interest, duh.

Yo Cane trash

Yo cane pig
Cane pro day is a joke
The NFL ticket expired long ago for U fool
What a sorry list of no names at cane pro day
They even have Joke-ory Harris for filler
That is a joke
None of the stiffs listed will get drafted before the 4th round
And then only 3 or 4 will and only because both kickers will get in
Gator pro day will produce at least one 1rst round selection and several 2nd rounders

Yo U be a homer and hater but that doesn't mean U gotta be so stUpid too

Cane pro day a ticket to the 5th round of the NFL draft if U r lucky like Vernon Davis
Ur days of NFL dominance r coming to an end as the likes of Reed and Lewis and their contemporaries retire
12 years of mediocrity starting to show

LOOSERS and Jacory is Ur best QB prospect, definitively LOOSERS!!

Gallo you idiot, Golden did not 'yank away' his education. Ray-Ray actually graduated...from a top univeristy ranked nationally. IDIOT.

Glad to see Golden invite Ray Ray, Jacory, Collier and all others who played a few years ago. this can only help them get noticed and maybe drafted to live their dream in the NFL

Gallo- You ARE confused. And pathetic, and dumb, and stupid and retarded and a moron. Just like your girlfriend Trashcan/canetrash

Ray Ray should be lucky to be allowed to set foot at the Greentree. He blew all of his chances at the U and had ample opportunity to do well last season and place himself in a position to potentially go first or second round. But he was selfish and arrogant.

Jacorry? Now I'm feeling sorry for him.

Out of the rest I bet there will be at least 3-4 to sign contracts with the NFL, IN ADDITION to Brandon McGee and Mike James.

I hope Coop gets another chance. he was a true cane and that cow pasture at the Citrus Bowl may have cost him a career and cost the U the win against Wisky.

You all- April 11. The UM HOF banquet to celebrate who is truly a class act. A cerebral QB that lost TWO games as a starter. Who brought us the ship in 2001. Who mounted that last minute comeback against a very good FSU team that stifling September day in the OB in 2000. The comeback with 1:26 left that started the 2000-2003 run of greatness, which, if not for the BCS committee mafia and a corrupt ref named Terry Porter, would have gone down as the greateds 3 year run in cfb in all time.

I'm talking about Ken Dorsey.

Ken- You are a God in Coral gables. Thanks for all you did.

I thought that Collier had ransferred to USC? I guess things didn't work out for him there either.

transferred not ransferred

Not that you can reason with Canetrash, but his "12 years of mediocrity" claim includes the 2002 undefeated regular season where the Canes lost the BCS Title game and finished #2. It also includes the 2003 season where they finished #5 and the 2004 season where they finished #11 and thrashed the Gators. According to Canetrash, a college football team is mediocre unless they win a national championship.

By that logic, the Gators have been mediocre for 5 years and the Seminoles have been mediocre since 1999.

I'm sure he'll come back with some witty retort such as "you're a LOOOSER, it's ten years, so what SunnyDoUche." Let's all wait and see!

Wow some of the people on here going on about how ray ray should tell golden off. Ray ray graduated from um he was kicked off the team because he was boning an agent and kept advertising it, he should thank golden foe allowing him to showcase his abilities whatever they might be since he never showed it on the field for um.

It also includes the 2001 season...

Yo Cane trash

Yo SunnydoUche why nitpick maggot?
So it's been 10 years instead of 12
Wow chUmp U feel better now?
Point is it's been a long long time
Longer than any other big time Florida school

And no U don't have to win an NC to be a good team
U don't have to have an undefeated season either
It's been proven time and time again

However U know when Ur mediocre, OK typical delUsional cane doesn't know
But the rest of the world does
Mediocre records, litany of second rate bowl losses
No players drafted higher than 4th round for years and years
And now, having Joke-ory at Ur pro day

Guess what, you're for sure a LOOSER!!

18 yr olds dating other 18 yr olds is not unusual....she is a kid...not Jerry McGuire

ray-rays scholarship was taken away from him just like Kirkland's was.....after a while you cant blame "friendly fire" This is an undeniable pattern with AL golden....

getting top players with questionable academics and behavior issues is the nature of south Florida recruiting.....ray ray should have never been let go...he is a good kid

"Guys, we got the 18th ranked guard out of Delaware.. We're loaded!"
_____________

Is there a dumber poster in here than Dom? Dude is clueless about the big picture. Obsesses about arbitrary lists on high schoolers who have never taken a snap and then declares Duh U is "loaded." Aside from your ignorant and wildly incorrect recruiting analysis, you don't grasp that there are MUCH BIGGER forces at play in who is elite and who is not.
(Free tip: UM- NOT elite)
But u keep puking out your recruiting ranking lists fool.
If someone was to post ALL of your cane predictions from the last five years you would be sent adrift at sea by ALL canes fans. And you are STILL puking the same clueless none sense years later. You have an, at BEST, average IQ Dom.

no not ray telling golden off....have his father tell golden to go kill himself .....I hope uncle Luke writes an article about this.....

ray-ray should not go to that...it is humiliating and embarrassing..he dosent deserve that.....he is being used to bulk up the attendance at Pro Day since it is VERY light.......

there is no benefit to ray being there.....he shouldn't play into goldens photo op.....

Have to say it, but Jacory, time to get a job, I mean a real one. You must have gotten a degree in something. Time to give up playing games except in the park leagues. I might say the same for a few other names on the list. Time to move on and start your real life. Time to hang up the Lettermen jacket and grow up.

Gatr Pro Day: Come watch the scouts laugh. It is the "I wish I had been a Cane day."

Ask Jonathan Colon, Emmanuele Moody, Matt Patchan, and the list goes on and on an on.......

Gatr trash just kills careers. Hey, Rexy Grossman, how is that NFL career?

BWWAHAHAHA, The Gatr trash suuuuuuucksssss.

Good luck to all the young men who are trying out tomorrow....

if only I had been a Cane.........and stayed out of the trailerpark, I wouldn't washing windows under the I-95 overpass. That is all my Gatr Trash diploma is good for. It is a great rag.

Yo Canetrash you are becoming redundant...

Your posts have lost their flavor, so either get witty with your junk or setup another format..
It ain't working bro, and getting boring...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Ray Ray knows that his problems were not caused by his team mates, Coaches, or anyone but himself..After time to think about what occured, he realized that his friends and College life and team mates are the 'U' so why not get together with Coop, Robinson, Smith, Bots, McGhee, and Jones..they are his bro's so why not.
Nothing wrong with that Gallows, your logic is illusional and conspiratorial at best.

I agree Dorsey is one of the Best QB's we have produced at the U, and a student of the Game. A smart and Classy guy. You will not hear anyone disparage Dorsey..one of the Leaders who carried the 'U' on his shoulders in many tight games...Good memories.
Go 'Canes

Gallo is on tilt, once again, as Ray-Ray's participation in UM's Pro Day establishes that Coach Golden is all about helping his kid's and Ray-Ray likes and respects Big Al, which destroys yet another of the countless Gallo lies.

Gallo, babe, how does it feel to be wrong about everything?

Your position is there should never be discipline and when a kid does something wrong it's Al Golden's fault.

Gallo would have recruited and played bin Laden at the "U" and blamed Al Golden for 9-11.

Gatr Pro Day: Come watch the scouts laugh. It is the "I wish I had been a Cane day."

Ask Jonathan Colon, Emmanuele Moody, Matt Patchan, and the list goes on and on an on.......


No go ask the Pouncey brothers, go ask Joe Haden
Go ask Percy Harvin, go ask Shariff Floyd and Matt Elam, and the list goes on and on


Gatr trash just kills careers. Hey, Rexy Grossman, how is that NFL career?

Much better than Kyle Wright, Robert Marvre and Jacory Harris and any other cane QB since Walsh
Much much better

BWWAHAHAHA, The CANE trash suuuuuuucksssss.

Cane pro day is one big joke
Jacory Harris for filler
No one will be drated before the 5th round
The punter is the best prospect the canes have

Jonathon Colon??? Wanna operate in this century cane Maggot? JaPicky should be at a lawn maintenance convention displaying his weed "picking" skilz. Do I hear pressure cleaning service? What menial labor job do you work at pig maggot? Lemme guess, you work for a hedge fund. Only hedges in your life involve the perimeter of the house for a Dade county Julio. Your life is worthless and u don't even have a UM degree u dum cane maggot

how did it help him? golden made him ineligible to play football 2012....golden destroyed his stock potential in the NFL.....ray-ray was never mentioned in the NCAA investigation at all....golden sacrificed him...

koolaid drinkers like you just don't want to admit that golden is a failure....but don't worry, I will remind you all year until he is gone......

he is done recruiting dade county...just ask Mario Cristobal who left 30 days later.....I hope him and coley butt heads when coley tries to put his offense in that was better than jedds in 2011.....i cant wait to see that....

Let it go Gallo, you fat worthless swine. Golden is giving Ray Ray a CHANCE because he likes the kid, every hear of that before, HE LIKES THE KID, you stupid mindless dork. If you EVER left your a-s-s imprinted seat in front of your computer you might undertstand what LIKING someone and being a HUMAN being are all about.

Gatr Pro Day: Come watch the scouts laugh. It is the "I wish I had been a Cane day."
Ask Jonathan Colon, Emmanuele Moody, Matt Patchan, and the list goes on and on an on.......

No go ask the Pouncey brothers, go ask Joe Haden

You really want to tug on that thread dude. The Gators don't even come CLOSE the amount of Canes in the NFL. Very weak post, lol. Hell even off our 7-6 team year before last, we sent 13 players to the NFL, and you sent about 2 or 3, LMAO..........

And we'll keep reminding you that fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, lol.

what chance?.....he already destroyed the kid....where did ray-ray play 2012 ball?.....

who knows what scouts will be at proday...its really a non-event for nfl introduction.....scouts want to see how a guy plays in traffic....not so much how much he can lift or run with a stop watch....

ooooooh, seemed we touhced a nerve with the trailer donkey. This century? Ok, Matt Patchan. How's that.

As far as I knwo, Shariff Floyd and Matt Elam are not in the NFL but or course a Pig like you has to use these names because the pickings are slim.

Emmanuele Moody? Anyone? Anyone? Ciatrick Faison? Anyone? Anyone?

Harving? BWWAHHA. Coke, weed and general GAtr Trash laziness will end his career very soon.

Don't be angry, Gatr maggot. It's not me talking. It's the facts.

Gallo - you don't think scouts care how much a prospect can lift or run with a stop watch??? Have you heard of the NFL Combine?

I used to think you were just a troll looking for attention, but you are so dumb I am beginning to feel sorry for you.

if Gallo were any more stupid he would be the UFailure valedictorian.

I love gallo grammar "how's idea" , must have dyslexia. You mean "who's". I give you props though you are always the fist one to comment and get people fired up. But honestly think your as insane as the guy who poisoned Auburn's tree. If this is your life, is to hop on the Miami herald and get people fired up, then I think you have some deep seeded issues that you need to confront.

yes secondary issue....first and foremost the scouts want to see if the guy is a good player and is smart....then they look to piece the rest together with the combine/pro-day....

how do evaluate a guy that has been off the playing field for almost 2 yrs vs his competition that has played regular season as well as in bowls..

golden f....cked him....this doesn't take him off the hook...no wonder no kids from dade county want to come to UM.....

time for jersey boys to leave...

Yeah Golden F'ed him alright. Gave him an education worth 250K and the chance to be something special and the kid messed that up and then LIED about it, you're even dummer everytime you post Gallo. Guess you want a team of liars,thieves, and cutthroats. This isn't the 80's dude get that through your mind numbingly thick skull.

Since 2009 the canes have had 2 players drafted in the 2nd round, no one taken in the 1rst and most taken after the 5th. For 5 years and counting no 1rst round picks, only 2 players taken in the second. For 5 years.
This year will be no different.
Stop living in the past
Your decade of mediocrity is catching up with you

"first and foremost the scouts want to see if the guy is a good player and is smart....then they look to piece the rest together with the combine/pro-day...."

Does anyone really believe that an idiot Pig like Gallo knows what NFL scouts think? Gallo, the closest you come to NFL scouts is when you stalk them in the bathroom you twisted maggot.

Why don't you lose 220 lbs. before you post again.

Rex Grossman was drafted in the 1rst round in 2003
Ken Dorsey was drafted in the 3rd round the same year and he was the last UM QB drafted since
Grossman is still in the NFL
No cane QB is in the NFL
So much for QB U
Another thing of the past
Canes are in the past
Your present reality is dim
Like dom
Step into the 21rst century with the rest of humanity
U sUck

doesnt matter dumba55. Miami still has the most players in the NFL. Sam Shields and others were basically free agents if not drafted low, and look what he is doing inthe NFL!. Tim Teblown who was a first rounder... let me guess is he still in football? LAst time I checked he was preaching in some extremist church somewhere.

Check the superbowl rosters. No- check the NFL playoff rosters. The pro bowl rosters. Check the NFL stats. running backs, receivers, tackles, ints. Go ahead, dumbs--t.

You'll find one common denominator:

Choc full of canes.

it already is...articles coming out left and right about UM being a "lost generation"...that's why I will be the lone voice to get this program back where it should be.....the first thing to do is fire golden...hire butch davis if hell come....now you have name impact for the program....hell fired dnofrio.....then he gets a name DC in here.....now the 305 is intact....get luther back on board....the radio stations...the high school coaches in dade.....then invite back those players that got let go.....I would also ask randy shannon if hell come back....he knows defense and with him, coley and barrow....will be a force in dade...

make a statement....be an us against the world but this time mean it.....

the only guys that will come back or understand this is former players/coaches....this brand is a close family...its a cane thing...but it has to be REAL

golden/dnofrio are not "cane thing"

JUST WAY TOO MUCH STUPIDITY FROM GALLO ON THIS BLOG TO BOTHER READING ANY MORE.

It's made worse that 8 of 10 other posts are from good Canes fans arguing with Gallo on top of that.

It's "Gallo's Blog" now and not a true Hurricanes blog anymore.

Im done..ts all yours

Sam Shields and Jimmy Graham 2 perfect examples of the current cane player, drafted in the latter rounds or undrafted, nothing to show for as a college career, no accomplishments while playing college ball, no big games, no big plays, typical of the lost decade of the canes.
It is only because some of these former players have innate talent that they are able to succeed in the NFL. Nothing to do with the school they played for, the coaches that they played under or the system they had to endure in college.
It can be said that these players succeed in the NFL IN SPITE of being saddled with a UM college career.
So cane pig stop living in the past.
Colacane embrace your reality.
Playing for UM in the 21rst century is a hindrance not an advantage.
