« Day 2 of UM Hurricanes spring football practice: Tyriq McCord, Deon Bush, Phillip Dorsett, Tracy Howard | Main | Canes Pro Day tomorrow: (Jacory, Ray-Ray on list); UM Sports Hall of Fame Banquet; More Baseball »

Sileo gone, Canes back at football, baseball tonight and Al Golden talks about QB/1B David Thompson.

My story from today is below-- what do you all think of Sileo's departure? I was playing his rant after Kansas State on YouTube yesterday and my husband was in the kitchen at the other end of the house and asking me who in the world (well, he didn't exactly ask it that way) was on the phone with me! Funny. 

    Dan Sileo finally wore out his welcome -- just a lot later than many had hoped.
   The WQAM-560 sports talk host, who began his stint in South Florida last April, was fired by the station and was not on the air in his usual daily time slot Monday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
   “We parted ways with him and we wish him well,’’ program director Jorge Sedano said of Sileo, adding that Kevin Rogers and Brandon Guzio will temporarily fill that slot until a permanent replacement is found. 
    John "The Freak" Renshaw, a Saturday host on WQAM and occasional weekday fill-in, is believed to be a front-runner to replace Sileo
   Sileo, a UM defensive lineman in 1986, infuriated UM fans with his tirades about the Canes’ football inadequacies — including a three-minute doozy in September after UM’s 52-13 loss at Kansas State. In that rant, which has topped 182,000 hits on YouTube, he urged players to “pull a knife” on the opposing quarterback, “and stick him! Gouge his eyes” and “kick him” in a certain body part. 
   “FIRED FOR SPEAKING MY MIND BABY!!!! Love it!!’’ Sileo posted on Twitter.
    Sileo was suspended for two days in January after posting on Twitter a series of sexist insults about Fox broadcaster Erin Andrews, including, “Love Erin Andrews either naked or in a porn. Not at a sports desk.”

 BACK AT FOOTBALL PRACTICE

   The Canes have resumed spring practice and are in the midst of third third of 15 sessions. Another gorgeous day at Greentree Field in Coral Gables. We get to watch the first 15 minutes of stretching and warmups and a few drills, and then we leave until interviews later. Be back later with update.

BASEBALL (AND DAVID THOMPSON) RESUMES TONIGHT

   Miami meets Maine tonight at The Light to begin a seven-game homestand against Maine.

   The Canes began the season 10-0 for the first time since 1981, but lost the last two against the Gators in Gainesville. On Wednesday night, Miami plays UCF, then goes into the weekend with its opening three-game ACC series against Duke.

   The UM homestand continues with two games against Illinois State March 12 and 13. 

  Freshman David Thompson, who doubles as a football scholarship quarterback during football season, leads the team and is fourth in the ACC with 16 RBI's.

    Thompson has at least one RBI in every game but two this season, and smacked his third game-winning hit of the season in Miami's 3-2 win over Florida last Friday. 

     I asked UM football coach Al Golden on Sunday about Thompson's accomplishments on the baseball field. Golden is well aware.

    "Tremendous,'' Golden said. "I got a text from him yesterday because I congratulated him. I happened to be in the car coming back [from a clinic] when he hit the game-winning RBI Friday night. His hand-eye is excellent, [he's] poised and again, a lot of confidence in that  young man. I'm really proud of him.     "I'm happy for him.''

    When asked by someone if he still expected Thompson to come back and play football, Golden said, "Oh, sure. I expect him to play good football. He's that kind of kid. He's a kid who just figures it out. He's a winner. He's going to help us...''

Might just be a rumor I heard the New York Jets just traded Tebow to Florida gators for 3 future 5 star studs and 2 Britney Spears tickets. Providing they reinstate his eligibility. If so. They say he will be ready by the Miami game. Not sure if that's going to help them. The storm is on the horizon. Check the radar SEC. There's nothing worse then not being prepared when storm come thru. So gators, seminoles, hokies, knights and bulls you still got time to get out of the way of the hurricanes path.Days and nights of category 5 storms are back.


Am I the only one who opens these blog posts, scrolls to the bottom to see is its written by Susan and if it is makes sure I don't read it to save myself the embarrassment of reading such garbage?

Miss the days when this was only Manny's blog

You're not alone!

Susan is great and unlike Manny not every thread is a veiled or clear stab at the Canes. For whatever the reason(s), Manny either knowingly or unknowingly finds something to belittle the Canes about even if he's reporting on the weather at Green Tree.

Keep up the 5 star work Susan!

Let it go Calvin, EJ is paying for his misdeeds, and that's that. He won't be back until his punishment is over, and that's the way it should be. The kids dont' run the team, the coach does, you moron.

Thank God you're not a coach, they'd run all over you, lol. By the way, we'll have a GREAT season this year, and I know you hate that, but that's what's going to happen. Learn it, live it, love it, you blithering idiot.

It's not looking good for having EJ back. I didn't know he wasn't part of Utough, not agood sign. I think the guy can play so I hope he makes it back.

ahh the casualty list, daily report. Gallo.... The same homers that were trying to run butch davis out of town after 99 season when the canes went 9-4 n Defense gave up a ton of pts are the same homers on golden. Canes have depth ,and blue chip recruits at the skill positions, all americans(pre season n last year), I mean when u return a top 3 o line, top 5 qb, top rb, all your wr's and then add the top 2 in high school and deliver 3 stud TE's its fun to talk about.
I have been a U fan for years n this is our best offense maybe in the history of Miami football if U go position by position, even the MIke Irvin teams....

your dreaming as always.....recruits are basically unrated in rivals250.....the starting depth chart are all shannons players.....2 guys from dade county....top tier recruits decommitt....WR were pathetic last year and so was TE.....not the players fault at all....little to no down field vertical plays.....only at the end of the season did jedd discover the TE..

well see next year how it all plays out....ray-ray invited to hall of fame induction...thats f...cking weird.....golden distroys this guy and then invites him?.....how does ray-ray get invited?..who made that decision....golden got the optics going I see.....why now invite paul-finnie and eddie johnson?

Canes 35, UFelons 7........... I know many of u dont like to understand the word "depth". But last year when Ur backups were freshman and the starters were injured or kicked off team or early entrance to nfl(vernon), U get 117th rank. Take POrrter n robinson off the line, u have pierre a SO DT and backup freshman. Now, this aint basketball a 18 yr old dt cant compete with 22-23 yr old off lineman.
Now with the 9 DT's I posted that all have college experience (JUST DT"s)pierre,porter,robinson,grimble,kamalu,ivery,king,brisce,moore........THe top4-5 play and rotate, even top 6-7.
DE is loaded when Muhammed comes
LB are loaded
DBS are loaded with 5 star talent just young......

WE did not have the depth last year, and this year freshman wont have to play like last year. maybe 2-3 freshman like muhammed, artie burns and carter, coley on offense, griffin on offense.

Now, we have true depth and u will see a huge difference.

Manny , again, posted we rank in the 30's in the 4 games porter played....well, knowe we have 9 dt's with at least 1 year in college

are you crazy....we had plenty of depth at all positions...tell me where we were weak?

please list the positions....

RB, Dline was injured, 3rd string LB's played, and we played freshman DB's alot......thats huge

2 losses were a tossup(UNC UVA GAMES) and 3 losses were to bcs bound #1 Notre Dame, FSU, and Und KST until their last game I believe. Not many teams played 3 bcs bowl teams there are only 8 bcs teams, 4 bowls, and we played 3 with a young team

as always Dom you know nothing....Golden had plenty of depth at those positions...he sabotaged a lot himself with his dumb discipline approaches....


Gallo...how is Finnie a Golden casualty? He was arrested fo stealing. Thats acceptable to you I guess?

yes it is....sorry. outside of raping the prom queen I could care less in public.....I will have my discussion with him about ,misplacing a laptop in his room on the practice field.....as for a statement to media....finnie will be dressed and ready to go for fsu.....

I understand how dade/broward and south Florida recruiting works....

Is that big dummy Gallo still talking!!!!


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!

Long, repetitive list making is a sign of low IQ and perversion.

Jim- yesterday you apologized and stated Golden has done some good things- Foolish me- I thought you meant it. Today you are back to bashing Golden- I was fooled, everyone else is right- your a clueless clown. If you had half a brain, you would see the good Golden is doing for this program. Just a half of a brain, just a half and you would see.

Maybe Sileo is an abrasive person- but don't write how he made all canes fans angry after he went off following our thrashing by K state. He was balls on with everything he said. He didn't mean stab someone- he meant have a heart and fight - thats what CANES do. I totally agreed with his rant and it was about time somebody said it. We've had pretenders suiting up for us for years. We need to put ass kickers back on the field. Go Canes

THUS FAR EJ44 IS STILL ENROLLED IN SCHOOL ? RIGHT? WELL IF HE WANTED TO LEAVE HE WOULD HAVE DONE SO BY NOW! WHY STILL BE IN SCHOOL GOING TO CLASSES KNOWING YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE HERE. YES HE HAS THE OPTION TO TRANSFER AND I THINK HE KNOWS THAT PART OF THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN HIMSELF! TO TRANSFER MEANS THAT HE WILL BE FARTHER FROM HIS HOME IN ATLANTA (UNLESS HE PICKS A GA .SCHOOL)I HOPE HE STAYS WITH US AND GET'S HIS ACT TOGETHER! THE PROBLEM IS THAT DUNNO DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE "BLACK ATHELETES FROM THE SOUTH" I KNOW THIS IS RACIAL BUT THE FACT IS THAT THE MAJORITY OF PLAYERS WITH THE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN ON THE DEFENSIVE SIDE OF THE BALL! YES I KNOW THE PLAYERS WERE WRONG AND SHOULD BE PUNISHED! BUT DO YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT ALL THE WHITE PLAYERS DON'T MAKE MISTAKES! OF COURSE THEY DO! BUT LOOK ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE! HOW MANY PLAYERS SUSPENDED BLACK OR WHITE? VERY FEW IF ANY! WHY? BECAUSE THE PLAYERS ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE GOT ALONG VERY WELL WITH COACH FISCH! THE GUYS ON DEFENSE DO NOT GET ALONG WITH DUNNO! WHY ? HIS PHILOSOPHY, HE DOES NOT MAKE IT FUN TO PLAY DEFENSE! HE MISUSES HIS PLAYERS,AND IT OBVIOUS THEY DON'T CARE FOR HIM! LET'S HOPE THIS CHANGES THIS YEAR AND ONCE AGAIN WE CAN GET BACK TO CANE STYLE DEFENSE, THIS IS WHY YOU LOST ALL THE GOOD DEFENSIVE PLAYERS IN RECRUITING! FOR SOME REASON COACH GOLDEN AND DUNNO THINKS PLAYERS DON'T TALK TO OTHER PLAYERS OR THAT THEY DON'T NOTICE THAT THE ONLY PLAYERS GETTING KICKED OFF THE TEAM OR ALWAYS SUSPENDED JUST HAPPEN TO BE OF ONE RACE! LIKE IT OR NOT CANE FANS IT'S THE TRUTH AND IF THIS TREND CONTINUES THIS IS WHAT WILL RUIN THIS SEASON AND THIS PROGRAM! DISCIPLINE? YES! SUSPENSION? IF NEEDED! TERRIBLE COACHING WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY ? UNACCEPTABLE ! GO CANES ! 2013 ACC CHAMPS!
