Top sport on cable last week: ESPN’s Miami-Duke game drew 3.4M viewers and was the 30th ranked show on cable for the week.

ESPN’s Miami-Duke game was the only sport in cable’s top 175 last week.
– john ourand

the game ranks as the third-most viewed college basketball game of the season on ESPN, trailing only Michigan/Indiana on February 2 (4.0M) and Indiana/Michigan State on February 19 (3.7M).
– smw

IT’S RAINING 3′s

Couldn't get the Miami-Duke game in trailerville. Rabbit ears, moonshine and spittoons don't mix well with modern technology.


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.....

ssshhhhhhhh, they just trying to get close to em, they didn't forget!

Ray-Ray Armstrong was one of the biggest underachievers at UM. His biggest play? Smacking DeMarco Murray his freshman year. Since that day, he never made another play.

No big loss. Him, Dye and DeBose's best days are well behind them.

Course, at least Dye and Ray-Ray are in the Cane family and DeBose has to live with the stench of living in the trailerpark for 5 years and being part of the Gatr Trash legacy mediocrity and failure.

Cane basketball novelty is already wearing off. As usual tonight's game is not even sold out. Back to normal as far as attendance goes. One lousy game has high TV ratings, thanks to Duke and ESPN hype, but every other game has poor attendance.
Canetrash go get your tarps ready the cane basketball team will soon need them again.

Awwww, the lil' Pig maggot's feelings are hurt.

Last time I checked, the O"Connell dumpster was not close to full. Guess even in a trailerpark Gatr trash can find other things to do than go to a UFailure hoops game.

Comprende, Pig?

Eddie Johnson given permission to seek a transfer as long as it's a school from outside of the ACC and not a Cane opponent during 2014-2016.

Gallo acting like the dummy he is again!!!!

IF YOU IGNORE GALLO, I GUARANTEE HE WILL GO AWAY.

HE LOVES TAUNTING AND DOES IT ON MANY SITES.

IGNORE HIM !!!!!!

I agree with that weast coast. This troll needs to be banned but won't be. Oh well. Ray ray is coming for one reason /where else can he go to work out for nfl scouts and help him get drafted. Florida and fsu aren't gonna let him come.

Cane basketball? Had a team in 2013, nothing before, nothing after.
Cane baseball? At least 5 years of getting eliminated in the Regionals by their big brothers up north.
Cane football? 10 years of mediocrity and counting

The recently departed Hurricanes who will be working out tomorrow are, in alphabetical order, punter Dalton Botts, linebacker Ramon Buchanan, running back Mike James, receiver Davon Johnson, offensive lineman Ben Jones, offensive lineman Jeremy Lewis, cornerback Brandon McGee, defensive tackle Darius Smith, defensive back Andrew Swasey, safety Vaughn Telemaque and kicker Jake Wieclaw.

The other list of former Canes includes names you know well: safety Ray-Ray Armstrong, receiver Ben Bruneau, receiver Thearon Collier, running back Graig Cooper, quarterback Jacory Harris, long snapper Chris Ivory, defensive lineman Marcus Robinson and defensive lineman Andrew Smith.

.

And not a single Top NFL prospect among them...

btw- I'll show up April 11th., but just that one time.

Yo Cane trash

Yo maggots is it true Eddie Johnson seeking to transfer??
Can't be that another good defender is gonna be thrown off the team
Say it aint so cane clUck

Yo domass and assorted cane apologist doUches
How U gonna get better when the few decent defenders U got keep getting thrown off the team?????
Can U clucks explain
Do U do math
Is this addition by substraction
Or is it some other Golden Retriever doUblespeak????

Is the high schooler Grace gonna fill in right away at LB cause dom the dUmb clUck has him on his list????

Yo clUcks check it out
Ur worst squad keeps losing players
How is that an improvement?????
Only in La La Land make belief candy cane world

Yo is Golden Retriever gonna turn some more TEs into LBs?????

Heard someone asking for tarp for the BB team
Football tarp is going fast
The BBallers r used to empty arenas, they don't need tarp indoors
Only the pretenders wannabe football clUcks use tarp to hide their sad reality

Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!

CANESTRASH What does "looser" mean"? Is this "not as tight"

I think that Canetrash is really a very involved 'Canes Fan just stirring up response.
He knows too much about the 'Canes and lives on this site...
One day Golden Retriever will bite him and he will acknowledge that we "RABID Cane fans" are not afflicted but just LOVE our 'Canes...Watch out 'trash you edge your sorry butt up to the Retriever and he will take a piece out of your A** and send you to the ER.
Winner: Golden Retriever..LOOOSER: Poor Canetrash.

Go ahead and admit that you are really a "Secret 'Cane"
LOL.

Let's see how long Gallow's "IT'S ALL YOURS" will last.
Our 'Canes are bigger than this.
Go 'Canes

Yes, that maggot is the Curse Pig. His pigness has infested this site for year. He was Curse of Art Kehoe but when they brought Kehoe back, he had to stick to his current garbage names.

He is a lonely boring illiterate Pig. So sad. So much blubber gone to waste.

Golden looses Eddie Johnson and Derrick Griffin, the best recruit for 2013 (rival150)

2 more to add to the casualty list

gotta agree with westcoastcane. Please do not respond to Gallo anymore. I used to enjoy this blog but now it's over run with comments by gallo. My dad used to say, "never argue with an idiot. people may not know the difference." by the way, gallo is an old indian name. loosely translates as "indian made love to buffalo."

Canetrash said: "Bunch of pathetic LOOSERS!!"

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that this Gator clown thinks he is spelling "losers", when he misspells it as "LOOSERS”?

This has been going on for months and it never fails to make me laugh…thank you moron!

If anyone should know how to spell "losers" it should be a Gator...the king of losers...or is it "loosers" lol!


in the 2011 draft, miami and lsu tied for the most nfl players drafted, not counting our sam shields and others that made rosters> that was comin off a 7-6 team......Miami is a football factory.

This just in from Journal of medicine--- long, redundant, irrelevant list writing linked to sword swallowing.

gallo, i will say this though, my man kehoe got them boys up front getting ready to go strong this year. ereck flowers is going to get yall hype this year, he's about to start playing like he did in highschool where he was dish-raggin d-linemen and defenses period. Plus i think ereck flowers is the first o-linemen i ever seen and he's bringing it back but he's the first o-linemen i can recall ever seeing with his jersey tucked cause he trying to showcase them ab's. In other words, he's wearing his jersey in practice old skool Canes style where almost all the skill players and linebackers wanted to show they ab's, but this is coming from an o-linemen.

I'm not sure how ereck flowers is not going to be the starting right or left tackle, anybody who holds him off will basically ahve to be a first team or all something in order to hold that man off, he's that skilled, all he has to do is keep getting stronger.

All that matters is we finally have a team with depth and experience coming back, didnt have 10 guys leave that should have stayed another year(Washington,O vernon,L Miller etc), and with the schedule, should have a chance at a great season.

We have not had this type of depth in years

Calvin: up front is just fine...like coley said vertical down field execution....does coley transform the offense? Golden said he keeping it basically the same but coley was promised autonomy with play calling..the whole reason he left fsu.....his offense at fsu was more productive than jedds last year....what happens next?

looks like Eddie Johnson is transferring and rumor is derrick griffin is going to academically ineligible.....dnofrio still here, don't know what is going to happen 2013 still

Yo Cane trash

Yo UgoNowhereCanes Golden Retriever is my trademark
U can't use that name without permission or compensation
FYI this dog is more like a mutt pup, all bark and no bite, if U know what I mean
Golden Retriever doUblespeak
Full of cliches and useless banter
Big talk, no results

Yo canes2 and just the made up facts maggot
U the spelling police loosers
Again I speak in a language that the average cane clUck can easily understand
Comprende I AM MDC reject?
Capisce GED wannabe??
U b both a loser and a looser
U b stUpid and stoopid
Take Ur pick chUmp

Yo Jonathan aka cane pig
"had to stick to his current garbage names"
Like U b the qUeen of name changing
U like Jonathan this afternoon
In the morning U had a few different ones
Tomorrow U will change again
All different names, all garbage, still the same doUche

"He is a lonely boring illiterate Pig. So sad. So much blubber gone to waste."

U looking in the mirror fool?
U have nothing to say
Nothing to contribute
Everything U post is B.S. and has not even a slight shred of truth in it

LOOSERS and LOSERS
dUmb and dUmber
It's a cane thing...............

[]_[] need to take a look over Ur empty Cane head... Ur missing a lot []_[] LOOOSER ! "LOOSER" is a Cane Staple.

HOLA ARTY !!! Catch you after I get inducted into the HOF at Jungle Island April 11th. and tell Shalalala where to stick my Plaque.

ITs funny that miami has beat the UFelons like 8 of the last 9 times we played, yet they come on here an talk smack... And those weasles took us off the schedule so they would not have an automatic L every year....what a joke.
We have tremendous LB depth, so if JOhsnon transfers, so be it.
Gallo, Griffin flashed the U sign at his basketball playoff game the other night, so if he has to go to prep, he enrolls in January. We are loaded at WR/TE now, so a grayshirt aint bad, but dont write it off. His coachs said he will take SAT 1-2 more times if necessary

Manny - Please ban Gallo. He should go join Sileo. They would make a beautiful couple.

"U looking in the mirror fool?"

BWWWAHAHAAA. That is great. So we know the blog Pig is no more than 18 years old.

Looking in the mirror? That is comedy gold, Jerry. A classic comeback to end all comebacks.

Looking in them mirror? BWWWWHAHAHA. That is great, blog Pig. Just great. Thath is sooooooo funnny.

"Looking in the mirror? I am on the floor laughing. How funny. Too funny. You are the Einstein of comebacks, Pig.

Truly, too funny. Any more funnies in your pig bag?

Seriously stupid...no one reads your crazy gibberish.

Typically, I scroll past and don't read your stupidity (similar to what everyone else on this blog does when seeing your garbage), but from time-to-time I glance to see if you are still misspelling the word losers...and it makes me laugh knowing just how ignorant you are...it's a Gator thang! lol!

It's a horse race that is now nose-to-nose coming to the wire as to who is the biggest dummy...you or Gallo.

The only problem with banning them is when we spank the UFelons in Sept and go 10-2,11-1,12-0 headin into the acc champ game, we have to watch these chumps say what a lucky season it was, etc etc

calvin: where are you going to put flowers?......you are not going to replace Malcolm Bunche (jr) or Seantrel henderson (sr) with him and besides....he is smaller....he has to be a backup

bashers, dont forget to tune in and watch the ACC CHAMPS earn the crown outright tonight.... Friggin Indiana loses to OSU and cuts down the nets last night for a tied conf champ. what losers. There goin out in the 2nd round.........Hope we spank em

Hey, look at me. I'm "looking in the mirror."

BWWWAHAHAHA, Pig. You still got it after all these years.


BWWAHAHAHA.

Flowers will b rotating in with the tremendous depth we have at every position. Nice when a guy like him is a backup

I personally don't have a problem with anybody on that list who'll try and get a spot with an NFL. team. We'r talking about UM players. They all got talent.

FYI: Most, if not all, are former RS recruits. One thing, though: Marcus Robinson is not a DL. LB yes.

the problem is Morris...what do we do if he gets hurt.....we have 15 receivers and 7 TE's....so coley is looking to throw the ball....but all our back up QB's haven't taken a snap besides Williams who is a Jr already and has throw the ball only 20 times for 130 yards.....the other 2 might as well be playing at FIU....

Morris is the only one that can air it out.....that's where UM is vulnerable....

"U looking in the mirror?"


The blog Pig is a regular Shakespeare.

BWWAAHAHA, Oink oink, Pig. you kill me with your wit and humor.

CONGRAT'S COACH SOLDY.....

Calvin: up front is just fine...like coley said vertical down field execution....does coley transform the offense? Golden said he keeping it basically the same but coley was promised autonomy with play calling..the whole reason he left fsu.....his offense at fsu was more productive than jedds last year....what happens next?

looks like Eddie Johnson is transferring and rumor is derrick griffin is going to academically ineligible.....dnofrio still here, don't know what is going to happen 2013 still

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

Welp, looking like that's it for ej44 and like i said earlier this year, the pattern with coach goldie is clear, i said they would wait until the spring game to see who could replace ej44 and since they've said they're moving tyriq mccord to the outside and they've been talking up alex figueroa, i knew eddie johnson was going to end up on the short end of the stick. But we'll here how young we are every year if goldie thinks this is the method of building a winning football team.

If goldie is to weak to handle eddie johnson than that tells me even more about him. eddie johnson would be one of jimmy johnson's favorite players, WHY, because he has the same dominant mindset that jimmy has, nothing about goldie or oach OH-NO/clown 117th says to me that they have that in em. So when i see them getting rid of a player like ej44, it doesn't surprise me.

How did Golden ruin Ray? It is not like he had a career before or during Golden. Unfortunately, he did not live up to expectations. No more, no less. The program and Ray need to move on. He got his degree from UM, which is a good start.

Didn't jacory sign with a Canadian team? But seriously I think its time for him to move on and give up on football, im sure he got a degree so its time to get a job

marve was a senior at purdue this year so how was he in the nfl already.i doubt he makes with all the knee problems he has had too.

yep...you did say that and that the guillotine was next for Eddie...I remember the post.....

as we have discussed....if you take all the players that were left....this team would be unbelievable....there was ALOT of good talent that went right out the door....

you have to take the JJ approach: "as long as you keep winning, I will handle all the other issues, just keep winning"

What was funny to me, when we played Virginia tech, gotta give up to #58 for them, because if it wasn't for him, duke johnson would've had some more yards, i'm sure he got tired of duke johnson's stiff arm though, lol. I like alot of the players on this team, going to be alot of fighting in practice this year but at the same time goldie doesn't know how to fester/foster that type of environment into championships. He better learn quick, he's been getting a free pass by these goldie lover's for some time now.

Now it was known coming in that derrick griffin had grade problems which is why i was wondering how he was coming here, it doesn't surprise me if he doesn't make it in this class, same with lockley, we all know how the clearinghouse is here since the troll president took over. That's one reason UM can't be crying about the nc2a investigation, that drug along just like UM's clearinghouse has done with several players over the last several years.

look recruiting south Florida is an animal in itself.....you have to be able to massage players that are not up to it academically and have a some behavioral histories....that's the way it has always been down there plus your in miami....its not your average city....

those are basically your impact players...the really bad dudes down there....irvin, bratton, highsmith, bain, roberts, shockey (white boy version), bain, perriman, baldes...etc....that's the model.....

dont change what is not broken.....always think 80's

Nice jester by Al Golden. Once a cane always a cane. That means Ray Ray and J. Harris. Everybody needs to make a living . Some want to follow there dream. No matter where it may end. This is America land of opportunity.This is there opportunity.

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.....Posted by: Jim Gallo | March 06, 2013 at 10:51 AM ////////////////////////////////////ssshhhhhhhh, they just trying to get close to em, they didn't forget!Posted by: Calvin | March 06, 2013

Do you guys have selective memories? Yes he was mentioned in the NCAA investigation and was suspended for 4 games for accepting gifts from Shapiro (Sean Taylor game worn jersey, trip to Cocktail One lounge, etc). He didn't get his scholarship and his education yanked from him either. He was given the opportunity to stay and finish his degree (he was only ONE credit short of his Sports Management degree) or have a full release so he could transfer. Also, the NAIA ruled that he couldn't play for Faulkner, not the NCAA. UM tried with Faulkner's AD to get him cleared by the NAIA so he could play. He was cleared of wrong doing from having dinner at Prime 112 with his girlfriend who happens to own a PR agency that works with professional athletes. The nail in the coffin was that either she or her agency paid for his hotel on South Beach and he lied about it. He was a liability to the program because he kept making bad decisions after bad decisions. If he stayed on the team, he would have only added to the NCAA infractions
