Donnie Sol, Ken Dorsey, other UM greats to be enshrined tonight in UM Sports Hall of Fame

Tonight's the night for some UM classics to be immortalized in the UM Sports Hall of Fame.

The list of UM greats to be inducted at Jungle Island: baseball player Ed Contreras, quarterback Ken Dorsey and his center Brett Romberg, diver Bryan Gillooly, golf coach Norm Parsons, pitcher Jay Tessmer and RB coach Don Soldinger.

I spoke at length to former RB coach Don Soldinger, who is extremely excited about the honor, and he should be. Great coach, super guy. 

I also spoke to quarterback wonder Ken Dorsey as he was driving from Charlotte to pick up his wife (former UM soccer player Jordan Sims) to drive to Miami. He's also very pumped.

"I couldn't believe it when I heard I was voted in,'' Dorsey told me.  “I’ve been a Heisman Trophy finalist two times, won the Maxwell Award and played in the NFL. But this is by far the biggest thrill I’ve ever had.

"I love that place. I love the city of Miami. I love the people there -- they are diehard Canes fans. Beautiful campus and the teachers are the best in the country. When you go into the UM Hall of Fame it's not just about UM but the whole city.''

I asked Dorsey, the new quarterbacks coach for the Carolina Panthers, if he would ever like to coach at UM -- as a head coach, quarterbacks coach, offensive coordinator, whatever.

"One day,'' he said. "It's not for lack of trying. If that's something they'd ever be interested in, that's something I'd definitely be interested in, for sure. I think everybody there knows I'm involved in coaching and everything like that. I'll just leave it at that.''

Dorsey and Soldinger will see lots of their old friends tonight. 

Should be fun.

I was told, by the way, that it's too late to buy tickets for tonight's event.

Dorsey deserves to be inducted.....his stats speak for themselves whether you like him or not:

he is just as deserving as jacory is at #2

ken Dorsey: (4 years)

attempts - 1153
completions - 668....57.94%
yards - 9565
TD's - 86
INT's - 28
yards per game - 233.33

jacory harris: (4 years)

attemps - 1170
completions - 703....60.09%
yards - 8826
TD's - 70
INT's - 48
yards per game - 187.80

randy shannon has no problem spotting QB's -

jacory harris (4yrs) - 8826 yards / 70 TD's / 48 INT's
stephen morris (3yrs) - 4868 yards / 28 TD's / 18 INT's
eddy bridgewater (2yrs) - 5847 yards / 41 TD's / 20 INT's

Apples to oranges gallo...morris only started 1 full year so his stats are looking better than jacorys stats and teddy ( not eddy) does not play for UM....but he did get most of those ststs in the sugar bowl.....

ESPN just reported bridgewater just scored again.....

Yo sidcanedoUche
that was funny 3 months ago clUck
But it's all U got and getting old already

Yo dom the dUmb clUck is at it again predicting Olsen will lead the canes to the playoffs in 2014
Just like he predicted Alex Collins and Matthew Thomas were coming to the canes
Nostradomasse in action

Yo canessUckallnight (and all day too)
Lady Canes basketball???????????????????
Seriously?????????????????????????????????

Yo U poor delUded dUmmies think that the NCAA is afraid to punish U like U deserve
U think they will leave U alone
U will be heart broken in June when they throw the book at U
Lack of institutional control
Loss of scholarships and another bowl ban coming

In June U will cry when the NC2A hammers U
Then in Sept U will cry when the Gators crush U

Bunch of crybaby LOOSERS!!!!!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That is all the Gatr maggots have to look forward to because:

1. Campus? Located in a stinking trailerpark;
2. Skewwl? Academic backwater;
3. Fanbase? Disgusting rednecks;
4. Football team? Last title 7 years ago and no depths at all.
5. Coach? Foaming-at-the-mouth plumber who was the former bag-man for Auburn. Any surprise Texas let him walk?

You suck, blog Pig. Different year, same Pig.

BWWWAHAHHA. Pounded again.

breaking news

I've attached the new 30 for 30 film, which is called TheU Reloaded. love this


https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=jfm_yTONtQ0#!\

Emmitt Smith wants to apologize for his HOF induction speech. He forgot to thank the school crossing guard in elementary school.

What a slap in your in-bred face when your most popular football graduate does not even mention your crap skewwl in the most important speech of his life. 40 minute speech and nothing about UFailure.

That says it all, trailer maggots. That says it all.

U know when I hear Canetrash speak it reminds me of Charlie Brown when the teachers speak, and ALL you HEAR is waa, waaa, waaaa. His ramblings never make sense and Ebonics isn't a language you dweeb. Learn english you ignorant hick. (Crybaby LOOSER) ??? What is that, what is a looser? You're like on the Cosby Cartoon, the kid who speoke like (dabba, deeb-ba, whab-da), LOL......

Congrats to all of the newly inducted Hall of Fame Canes!!!! All well deserved!!!

Soldinger - Please come back. Have a sit down with Golden I'm sure he would love to hear what you have to say. Think about it!!!

Can't wait for tomorrow's Spring Game at Joe Robbie. Let's see what these young pups are gonna show us!!!! EVERYBODY GET YOUR A55E5 TO THE STADIUM TOMORROW!!! SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!!!


GO CANES ALL DAY EVERYDAY!!!

Lady Canes play today ?

We are the UCONN of the South Baby !!!

For the fifth consecutive year, UM will not have a player picked in the first round of the NFL Draft.

In fact, it seems likely only two Hurricanes — running back Mike James and cornerback Brandon McGee — will be drafted and neither will go until the third day of the selection process during rounds four to seven.

.

yUp, Ur Back ...

Yo NostraDomasse... Give us Ur list of the 20 players or so currently playing for dUh []_[] that U say will be sure fire 1st. Rounders ...

I can see Golden bringing in Soldinger for a practice or two and letting him talk to the RB's about pass blocking techniques, footwork, and making reads but not as a full time coach.

EVERYBODY GET YOUR A55E5 TO THE STADIUM TOMORROW!!! SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!!!


GO CANES ALL DAY EVERYDAY!!!

Over/Under 4K ?

Will the next Gatr Trash HOFer, however unlikely it will be that any Gatr maggot makes the HOF in the next 50 years, "forget" to mention the UFailure?

Odds are even right now.

Que? Gatr maggot? As if having a skewwwl in the world's largest trailerpark isn't insult enough, Emmitt drops a steamer on you.

So, yeah, no first rounders this year. Big deal. Emmitt crap pile is much worse. And that cannot ever change.

BWWWHAHAHAAHA.

Muscrap: "Duuuuh, halloooo, Emmitt, dis is Corch Muscrap. Can you come to campus and speak to our team."

Emmitt: "No. That place is a sewer" (Click)

Michael Irvin: "I love the U."

Deion Sanders; "I love FSU."

Emmitt Smith: "Go Pensacola Escambia HS."

what are you talking about...those are teddy bridgewaters regular season stats..."t" didn't print..I know who he is, lol

That is all the Cane maggots have to look forward to because:

1. Campus? Located in the middle of the city with lots of traffic, homeless people begging on one corner and illegal aliens selling limes on the other. No stadium on campus have to travel about an hour in traffic to get to the rent a stadium that is always empty.
2. Skewwl? over rated and second in the State in academics
3. Fanbase? What fanbase? a bunch of disgusting MDCC dropouts who never go to a game.
4. Football team? Last title 12 years ago and no depths at all, no players picked in the first round in forever, worst defense in memory.
5. Coach? clueless plumber whose best attribute is the fact he wears a tie. Any surprise Temple let him walk?

You suck, blog Pig. Different year, same Pig. Same mediocre team, same bandwagon fans.

BWWWAHAHHA. Pounded again.

Enjoy the Spring dUmmy in the Summer the NC2A will hammer U and in the Fall the Gators and Noles will hammer U again

Yo richie the loser and Coke Cherry Pig R so happy they make movies bout the canes.
Yo I saw another one on CNBC's American Greed bout some cat named Shapiro and how he ran cane athletics for the last decade.
Poor chUmp paid lots of cash for poor performance. Pay for Loosing. Pay Jacory for INTs. What a doUche!
At least Uncle Luke got wins for his cash.
"We cheat yet we cannot win", the current cane battlecry. Keep crying dUmmies.

Yo higuydoUche
Hide behind many names?
U must B talking bout the Cane Pig
That's all he does

LOOSERS, Crybabies and dUmmies

That is the worst comeback in the long history of your awful comebacks, Pig.

You and your stank skewwl in the trailerpark have been owned. Go troll the Iowa State blogs. You would have better luck.

BWWWAHAAHAHA. Pig is crushed. Again.

When there is nothing to say..ALWAYS mention the 'Canes Fanbase...Whoever you are (as you use so many names), let's be real..How many Cships do you recaps own?..
How many players move to the next level?.
Oh yes Tebow is on standby...

REALITY IS A SHOCK BUT YOU HAVE TO LIVE THROUGH IT.
Get that in your mediocre head.

As 'Canes we know who we are..you are still SEARCHING.
We are the HAMMER you are the nail. POUNDED.

Go 'Canes

HAHA...that's the best you can come up with?? No titles in 12 years?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....good one...esp when we have 2 more then you...plus the fact their are teams who are still trying to get there first. Were not worried about the last 12 years...OUR TROPHY CASE IS STACKED YOU IDIOT!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....

UFELONY.....WHERE INBREEDING GETS BETTER AND BETTER!!


Emmitt, whered did you go to college?

"I'd rather not discuss it. It has a long history of cowardice and failure. The odors are horrific and the people are trailertrash. Other than that, it was horrible."

/s/

Emmitt Smith

"That is the worst comeback in the long history of your awful comebacks, Pig."

No it was an excellent come back based mostly on facts as opposed to your fantasy laced rant.

"When there is nothing to say..ALWAYS mention the 'Canes Fanbase."

There is a lot more crap than just the lack of a real fanbase.
No on campus stadium
Poor attendance
Losing and more losing for a decade
And years of cheating, to name a few

"HAHA...that's the best you can come up with?? No titles in 12 years??"

No, see above for more. BTW that was a response to your claim of no titles in 7 years, point is you are worse, much worse.

Are you people so dumb you can't get that was a copy and paste of some deluded cane idiot who wrote fantasy and I came back with facts?

This Gatr maggot is showing the poor quality of his education. Damn, Santa Fe CC grads do a better job than you, maggot.

No on campus stadium: REally?!?!? You don't Say??!?!? it has been that way since day on but has not prevented the Canes from pounding the Gatr Trash; having more title and owning the head-to-head. What's a poor miserable Gatr maggot to do?

Poor attendance: See above. BTW, the myth of the Gatr Nation is just that. For the big games, the Swamp dump is full. Other than that, they can't give tickets away. Which is actually worse since there are no other options on a Saturday in the cesspool Trailerville.

Losing and more losing for a decade: Ummm. Check yer math, Gomer. A decade ago, the Canes played for the NC. In reality, it is a about 8 years. And 7 years since the UFailures won the NC. What are you bragging about?

And years of cheating, to name a few. Cheating? Getting comped chicken wings, a few boat rides and free concerts is what you have your overalls in a bunch about? Wow, wish your fellow maggots would get as upset about the felonies, bloody credit cards, AK-47's and all the the other felonies and misdemeanors your criminal football players commit. You know, how about jumping up and down on the roof of your double-wide about that?

bWWAHAHAHA.

Crushed, Pig. Just crushed.

ken dorsey definitely deserves to be in the UM hall but he was definitely surrounded with a plethora of 1st round draft picks, than when you add up the 2nd rounders and others, dorsey did a good job, just when he got in his first real physical game against ohigho fake, he wilted under pressure. Other than than, j70 would've had better numbers than dorsey if he was placed in the same situation. j70 had more talent than dorsey and and could see the field better, it would've been bombs over college football if jacory was at the helm.

lot's of buzz on UF campus about ncaa visiting... stay tuned...

Calvin: you are right, if you look at both Dorsey/Harris stats...extremely close....if Harris had Dorseys players he would have bypassed dorsey in a big way....

see page one of this blog....no way that can be denied plus remember he had a stretch where he had no protection......add his thub injury which was significant...Harris would have put up big numbers

typo - thumb

ken Dorsey: (4 years)

attempts - 1153
completions - 668....57.94%
yards - 9565
TD's - 86
INT's - 28
yards per game - 233.33

jacory harris: (4 years)

attempts - 1170
completions - 703....60.09%
yards - 8826
TD's - 70
INT's - 48
yards per game - 187.80

how close is that....

Gallo, meet dead horse. Commence beating.

Booooooooooooring.

Look at me, a Cane maggot showing the poor quality of my grade school education. Damn, MDCC grads do a better job than me, maggot.
No on campus stadium: REally?!?!? You don't Say??!?!? it has been that way since day on but at least we used to win in the OB until that last game we got a pounding by lowly Virginia; Since we moved to that No Life Dump we are stuck on mediocre, for a decade now. What's a poor miserable Cane maggot to do? Just live in the past and watch our glory days DVD.
Poor attendance: See above. BTW, for the big games, the Swamp is full. Other than that, they have more fans than we do our best days even if we give tickets away. Which is actually worse since on their worst days they can have 60k while we can't ever match that.
Losing and more losing for a decade: Ummm. Check yer math, Gomer. A decade ago, the Canes played for the NC. In reality, that is when the losing started in 2002. So I can nitpick but it has been a decade of losing and more to come. And in 2008 the Gators won it all, 4 seasons ago, but my math calls it 7 years since I don't do much math. What am I bragging about? Made up stuff, I got nothing else.
And years of cheating, to name a few. Cheating? Getting comped chicken wings, a few boat rides and free concerts is what you we want you to believe happened. But everyone knows Shapiro was the AD for all those years and multiple coaches and players were inthe bag. Heck never mind the Biogenesis stuff that is now coming out about cane baseball. All 3 of our sports are up to their necks in slime. Wow, wish we had something to show for all that cash and drugs, nothing but mediocre losing, sucks. You know, how about jumping up and down on the roof of your nearest PED clinic that?
bWWAHAHAHA.
Crushed, Pig. Just crushed.

GAYTURD's talking like DUMMIES again!!! SHHHH!!! little one's.. SHHH!!


5 THANK YOU

(how many you got?)

Gallober/calvina, dorsey is plus 36 in the touchdown to interception ratio, so how in the blue hell is that close? What a couple of morons U two are.

there is no such NCAA stat "touchdown to interception ratio"...lol

green pea go back to class...semester is almost over...you need all the time you can get....touchdown ratio, lol....another good one

Bottom line is Dorsey did not lose games....J12 did.

Like I said....our trophy case is STACKED.

Dumbass, all U have to do is see that Dorsey has 16 more touchdown passes and 20 less interceptions U dope. It's simple adding and subtracting idiot and no body ever said anything about what the NCAA has moron. If there is a record for most delusional and idiotic person in the guiness book of world records U have it hands down, congradulations U have finally won something.

I know its off topic but i got a good laugh wjen i remembered it...i was at a gator game while spurrier was coach. I think they were playing memphis st. ??? Steve punted on third down and every one was scratching their heads....after the game steve said " if we caint run the ball and we caint pass the ball, we might as well give it back to them". Nice legacy.....

How is there anyone dumber then Gallo here?? Cool Cat seriously? The kid lost two games at QB....was INCREDIBLE with the ball in his hand...got us our 5th ring...haha...Dorsey is well worth the induction fool.

You guys are morons. Jacory may have had more natural talent than Dorsey but he didn't have Dorsey's drive, work ethic, maturity, or leadership qualities. Dorsey never acted like an as$ clown (dropping other guys pants, saying that he was going to wear a pink suit and bring a pimp cup to the Heismen presentation). Dorsey's teammates loved him and he had their respect. Jacory wearing a jackas$ overall shorts with no shirt and a matching hat is impossible to take seriously.

Flla looks like they have 2 possible three big running backs. I hope ya boy will be ready for that three pronged attack. 25 33 and Taylor will be running the ball two time a down and then let driskel make a play. The key will be to stop burton and then the running backs. Ej an Paul will be needed but no sense in crying about spilled milk but I hope Kirby plays like that against fla and not and not just an incoming freshman. We must be physical with fla. we give a lot o heat to oh no but he has to find away in that zone of his to pound the runners. We pound 25 21 33 and driskel we win an definitely stop burton we win. It is imperative that we beat fla.

We're not losing to the turds.....

Ken Dorsey was not the fastest, Didn't have the strongest arm,Wasn't the most accurate at the U. But he got the job done. When it was time to make a play he got the ball to the right personnel. When he had to throw he delivered. When he needed 2 or 3 yards to keep the drive alive. When he ran his 10.5 in the 40 yard dash was fast enough to get the first down . Great job Mr. Dorsey . Welcome to the U halls.

oye, U got a women's swim, diving, tennis, volleyball, ping pong, golf or debate team that can win ?

and beat the Gators ?

hey []_[]

if dUh []_[] plays a game today and nobody shows up... is it still a game ?

Hello everyone

I'm the skanky fake online lawyer

Come by my tailgate today. Free food.

You can't miss me. I have the beer gut of a truck driver and about 50 lb of clown makeup.

I like to pretend I'm somebody.
