« Receiver Jontavious Carter latest to leave Hurricanes | Main | UM coach Al Golden unveils yet another Hurricanes depth chart -- for opener Friday against FAU »

Breaking down the Hurricanes roster by scholarships

With the NCAA expected to make its announcement regarding infractions in the near future (we have no idea exactly when) and a few former scholarship players leaving the program of late, I figured it might be a good time to go over exactly where the Hurricanes stand in term of scholarship numbers by position.

Unless something has changed since Monday (in terms of walk-ons and whom Al Golden has awarded a scholarship to) my estimation is the Hurricanes have 76 scholarship players, nine fewer than the 85 allowed.

HERE IS THE BREAKDOWN
> Offense: 36 scholarship players (5 QB, 6 RB, 7 WR, 5 TE, 13 OL); 9 walk-ons
> Defense: 38 scholarship players (16 DL, 9 LB, 13 DB); 8 walk-ons

20 seniors on scholly...plus 9 short of the limit.

We need to appeal whatever scholarship reductions the NCAA gives us. Hopefully the process will extend past NSD.

If that's the case we will have 29 scholarships to give for 2014 before before the penalties are in effect.

Hopefully, this is the case. Otherwise we will be short, say 5 over the next 3 years plus the 9 we are short at this time.

Not quite sure about the process.
A little help here?

Gunter isn't a senior this year? Fentress is my boy--he's living my dream and I told him that. He was cheesin.

Chad thomas of booker t throws up a []_[] after a sack.

Where he going?

The U

Btw 27 georgia norcross 0

34-0 and there is no doubt where Chad Thomas is going after he shed two blocks and stopped the rb for a 1 yd gain... Throws the []_[] up again on national TV.

Jackson, Thomas, Bethel (BTW) and Herndon TE from Norcross...all coming to the U...Anyone else? BTW, they should offer the LT (Ingram?) that has held Lorenzo Carter to a no-game and protected Harris (QB) very well..

I still don't understand why Carter left. Just by going on last year's season, we lost Malcolm Lewis for the year, Hurns missed a couple of games, Dorsett was banged up, and Scott was suspended at the end of the season. If the kid had stayed he could have contributed, and he's only a redshirt freshman. What's the deal? So what if he was the 7th or 8th receiver, he's just a freshman with his whole career ahead of him to improve and finish strong as an upperclassman. How about a guy who blossomed late like Hankerson or the guys who stuck with the program even if they weren't seeing the field regularly like Kendal Thompkins, Davon Johnson, Dedrick Epps, and Tervaris Johnson?

Was he dismissed or asked to leave? Who has the answers?

ain't going anywhere unless they have a defense that can consistently hold the other team to 28 points a game
just opinion

Welp, at the end of the day, coach goldie and his boy clown 117th's real journey begans in less than 7 days, if FAU scores more than 14 points, it better be because the back-ups were in there and even still, they shouldn't score more than that. Also, these are the games where we're suppose to use alot of younger players as well and give them good game experience. I don't need to see smo17 the whole 2nd half or to many starters, by haltime or no more than mid-way thru the 3rd quarter, starters need to be already thinking about the gaytors, if we're in a dog fight or the starters can't sit down by than, it will be clear what needs to happen.

Than come the gaytor game, clown 117th vs brent pease, this my friends is a mismatch.

Cal I know one damn thing, if we show up vs fau showing corner 15 yards off of db's well know nothing has changed with their 'efensive philosophy!

Lol

Btw after Harriet Tubman Canes said he wasn't Cav I knew it was Zakkee lol

ROFL, dawg, i might have to sue UM if i see that, cause i might mess round and break the t.v. by throwing something at it. Also, if we see that, that definitely confirms that coach goldie and his boy clown 117th have a sissy defensive coaching philosophy like i've been saying all along. It takes ballz and a certain kind of mindset to play True press-man like we've done it for almost 30 years, what makes these 2 come in and try to change it and for the last 2 years we've had garbage defenses.

If it ain't broke, than don't try and fix it(Summer Time). These 2 coming in like they're some type of defensive Guru's or something and don't know what they're doing on that side of the ball. Their mentor al groh didn't know what he was doing and he's out of work now. We got players putting on alot of weight but the defense is still being touted as "bigger, stronger & faster" lol. I don't recall seeing any defensive players in the tops of nothing in the 40 times.

While rayshawn jenkins has put on some weight and is now 215lbs, up about 20lbs from last year, how will his range be, time will tell. Who cares about size if you're not a dominant defense, you'll look like tarzan, get beat and feel like jane.


Marios,

"Last year he simply did not have the personnel or experience for the type of defense he wants to play"

So why didn't he change and play a defense to accommodate his talent? Did he practice last spring? So why didn't he know he didnt have the personnel to play his style of defense? After the first 4 games did he know he didn't have the personnel and experience to play his style of defense? do this staff know the meaning of adjustments?

Can omeone answer thi man?

All the speculation by the armchair coaches, the ones who don't have jobs in the industry for some reason, is about to be over. I'm ready for some Cane football! The defense better stand up and show some serious improvement or it's going to be another disappointing season.
Calvin, what good does press coverage do when the QB has time to sit around and paint his nails? If the DL doesn't start getting some serious pressure it's still not going to matter what kind of coverage the db's play...can't expect them to blanket a receiver forever.
It's amazing how much I've started hating the gaytors just because of the posts on this blog. Go Canes!

calvin you made soe sense there - and I agree if the canes give up more than 14 or if they are in a dog fight vs FAU there will be h-- to pay and I will join the ranks of those chanting for donofrios head,

But you need to get over your self promoting agenda of hate against donofrio and stop calling him names like that first UM was 116th, But acually they were 82 in points scored against. But second, its a new season. If UM were to be the tenth D in the country will you change your nickname for him to clown10??

donofrio played what he could last year.Had he pressed on the D line and lbs with aggressive blitzing as you have called for, and instead of setting corners back 10 15 yds instead of closer, they would have been eaten up.

The one absolutely one game that I blame donofrio (and not the inexperienced and undisciplined payers) is the last drive vs Virginia.

True Cane I am not an expert like others on here but I don't believe you could implement a whole new defense after 4 games of the season , I think AG decided he would teach his defense and take his lumps then and this year have more experience to work with . It would not make sense to change defense in mid season and then in the off season change it again to what you want . Just my opinion . Go Canes

Ga Cane you got it.

What did Coach D have to work with?

No established D.
Young players many who had never set foot on a College football field.
Kids who did not know what a playbook looked like, much less how to implement drawn up plays.
Kids because of lack of knowledge, made up plays by trying things out of position, .
Not understanding called signals.
Basics such as wrapping up, and body placement for maximum effect on D.
Scared kids who pressed hard because they wanted to contribute but as soon as they let down in the 4 th quarter got burnt in some instances.

Yes Calvin blame Coach D but that is what we had to work with.

REALITY IS A B***** when it strikes you in the face.

So back off on LAST Years D. Talk about the D of 2013. 2012 is LONG gone.
Go 'Canes

Calvin is a gator...I recommend when your are reading and see the words goldie,clown or bloody(unless it is a hernandez blog)to skip the comment.

The whole problem coach goldie and clown 1117th have is, they came in talking to much and their words don't match their actions, coach goldie and clown 117th both said:

"Think players not play/scheme"

We can call this a mistake or a lie, but whatever you want to call it, the facts are, doing the opposite of this statement has caused us to be 117th in the nation efensively. If they Truly were thinking players and not plays, we would've never tried to run that 3-4 crap, but instead they've cut players, gotten rid of players, benched players, moved players to offense in the meantime to try and convert this team to a defensive style that's not conducive to the type of athletes they have access to round Miami.

Everybody know our defensive game is about overwhelming offenses with team speed and smothering them. These guys are trying to bring a power based philosophy to a school that's been known as the Mecca of defense. They're bringing a foreign defensive philosophy to a school and to a state where basically all the surrounding highschools & optimist leagues play 4-3 base defenses.

So it's actually stupid to bring the 3-4 to an area that mainly produces 4-3 type players. Guys who are used to playing aggressive defense their whole life are now coming to UM being told to sit back, it's a culture shock style of defense to players from here and it's foreign to us, why are we running from offenses instead of going at them. I'd rather see us get burnt like brandon harris did against California his rookie year trying to be to aggressive, but he didturn round and help track that man down which is what you'd rather see than us playing 10 to 15 yards off the ball and getting kilt slowly but surely.

Cause you knew during brandon harris freshman year he was going to become a real good db, it was just a matter of him getting stronger and going to some growing pains, came his sophmore year, he was reay, not to many people completed passes his way or even ran to his side without coming up empty or short. We didn't back away from that style because of somebody getting beat, coach goldie and his boy clown 117th don't understand mentally if we get beat deep, we mentally get pissed off and want to get that back, we don't feel sorry for ourselves, most of us always felt if somebody got something on us, they got lucky but they won't get the next one.

With coach goldie/clown 117th big 10 mentality, they were the ones who always got down when they faced Miami or any team from the state and got bombed because they knew they didn't have the team speed to keep up.

Next, these guys are not teaching our d-linemen to get up field and get after the qb like we're use to, they think sending a linebacker on an obvious blitz is being aggressive, nope, if you're going to send a linebacker in on an obvious blitz but you still have your db's playing that far off the receivers, than you're wasting time blitzing because the "hot read" is going to be wide open after 7 or 8 yards, doesn't even have to break off his route if the db's are already back 10 to 15 yards plus running back further before the ball is hiked.

If we're not disrupting the timing of the receivers, you can blitz all day long and come up empty, it's not an accident that we're 117th in the nation, a good d-co has to also have a real good feel for the game and what to call at certain moments.

Coach goldie saying things like "be the same guy everyday" that shows he doesn't have an in-game adjustment mentality, that's a horse with blinders statement. So they go in to games thinking the teams we face are going to be "the same team everyday" that they saw on tape, than after the game you kept hearing coach goldie and clown 117th basically complaining saying, "so & so team did alot of things different than what we saw on film" OF COURSE they did dumbo's, as if the other teams were cheating by doing that or something.

I knew in that first year hearing that being said repeatedly bu the goldie, clown 117th and the players that the players weren't being prepared properly on defense. So what we do scheme wise when the clown can't figure out what's going on is go into prevent defensive mode which him and goldie feel is safe mode, so quite naturally this bozo is going to say "the only stat i'm worried about is points allowed" yeah because you've been to inept to effectively make adjustments and force offenses to have to adjust to what we're doing defensively, so when offenses prepare for us, they can't believe how easy it is go up and down the field on us and what we do "be the same scheme everyday"!

Nice book Calvin . Best seller Im sure . Go Canes

Also, those bozo's who criticized ray ray armstrong, do me a favor, when yall start bragging about how many Um players are in the nfl, don't be hypocrites and start sac riding him either. He wanted to play safety at UM but it's money time now so linebacker is where it's at, he actually was a solid safety and at 1 point was rated high as a safety, him and telemaque would've been drafted had john lovett still been the d-co here.

Anyway, all this moving and running around in the secondary trying to confuse college qb's in unecessary, the offenses that they're running in college are not that complex, so while we got our secondary guys zig zagging around pre-snap, all other teams offenses are doing are running the basic gold ole hit routes and 8 yard curl routes-wide open all game long.

Had the turtles oc looking like he belonged at the top of the college football chain of oc's.

Canes 82nd in scoring D in 2012. Need to keep the offensive scoring up and improve the D meaningfully to have a successful season. If DNo can't get the job done, Al will have to move on the a new DC.

He could consider Lady Calvina, but would obviously be concerned about his player's health and would be concerned that they'd be talked to death.

To add to that, ray ray armstrong is a perfect example of what made UM continue to keep the speed on defense, he ust waited until he got to the pro's to make the switch, but had he moved to linebacker in college with his safety speed he would've been way more effective, but it's not taking him long to adjust, now that he's at linebacker, hes one of the faster linebackers and under jeff fischer a real good defensive mind he'll know how to use em.

You guys who keep harping about the terrible showing last year by the D and blaming the coaching and their schemes, just shut up for a couple of weeks. Last year the D did not have the horses and zero depth. This translates to the first teamers wore down (in each game and as the year went on) as they played too many reps and received no quality relief. This year the front line players are a year older and a stronger and there is depth behind them. If this D looks anything like last year's, I would agree a coaching change in the D is mandatory. My thought (hope) is we will see a decent D this year, bordering on solid.

Just shut up on the coaches until after the UF game.

Lady Calvin continuing her ability to predict with 100% accuracy things that have already happened.

For once, tell is who is in the wrong position TODAY but will be an NFL contributor at that position in the future.

We are in big trouble at the WR reciever position come next year...I think Golden and Staff need to be pulled some of thier offers at other positions and target at least 5 WR for the 2014 class..

To adjust does not mean nor entail the implementation of a whole new defense. U mean to tell me that you've never watched an offense have success doing something and then notice that a defensive coordinator made a "tweek" adjustment in scheme to take it away (either after halftime or from series to series?--I've witnessed both watching college, high school, and the NFL). Thats like saying that a coach is stuck and relegated to his scheme and game-plan for a whole season once he implements it. Thats why U recruit versatile and intelligent players--like Golden ALWAYS brags that he has done whenever one commits. He also says that the kids skills fit their style of coaching so?? Why would a coach admittedly have a defensive strategy that only fits veteran players? Should we only expect good defenses every 3 or 4 seasons?? I don't understand that concept.

"No established D"..."REALITY IS A B****..." I mean how can u write these things without doing your research first? Have the nerve to use all caps and profanity like you're mad, but be totally wrong? What has D'No or Golden done for U to make U defend them soooo hard till U begin to convince your own self of fallacies.

Go look up the defense they inherited in 2010. It was upperclass laden--have yall forgotten the players that started and played D'No's first year? Last season--only Bush, McCord and maybe Howard were freshmen who got semi-significant playing time but the coaches weren't forced because of numbers to play any of them. It was because they could play, not surprisingly since they were all 4 or 5 star recruits and we knew they could possibly come in and play right way. Everyone in college football is playing freshmen here and there if they can play. Look-up Golden and D'no's starting line-ups--in no season have they been riddled with freshmen nor players who have never played before. Everyone has been sprinkled in and if a freshman took an older players spot, it was because of his superior play, not bad numbers.

Gallo may make long lists of critique, but I promise they're balanced out by even longer lists of excuses. If kids don't understand signals, have a bad/repetitive habit of free-lancing, and are inexperienced---then why did they touch the field (they were not the only kids we had to work with--when our coaching staff asked to work with them--recruited them--themselves lol).

First, the South Florida recruit has almost always been playing organized football since maybe 6 or 7 years of age, so they are intelligent and know what a playbook looks like. Your description of our team demographic and their supposed deficiencies couldn't be any more unfounded. All the things listed are the coaches responsibility, but U are willing to throw the kids under the bus instead of hold them accountable (even considering the fat paychecks they receive to do so...wow).

A fan doesn't have to be an "expert" to have and hold expectations for coaches that asked for and built those same expectations themselves. Don't need to be an "expert" to notice the existence of adjustments when watching other teams play every single weekend. Didn't coaches have practice, spring camp, spring scrimmages, fall camp, fall scrimmages to see what kids had those deficiencies: free-lanced, unintelligent, don't know signals etc (even though they recruited them because they didn't have those same deficiencies)??

Our total defense was 116th in the nation and scoring defense was 82nd in the nation. Now go look up the rosters of the 115 and 81 higher teams on those lists and notice how most of all those teams played with young players (underclass laden 2 deep rosters). So what now? What is the new spin or excuse. Our players are better than almost all those teams--talent-wise, so why were they able to be more efficient ands successful than Us?

Coaching. the ability put the players in positions to be successful according to their talent level and not just your scheme. The ability to adjust; implement and call a versatile defensive game-plan in practice and more importantly on game-day. U are supposed to practice and simulate the need for adjustments during practice. Every scheme should have a "tweek" or set.

Miami Hurricanes don't play scared. No scared kid should ever touch the field. Getting playing time more than anything should mean that a kid is prepared and dialed in emotionally, mentally and physically--in that exact order of importance (although they all are important)! U don't have to be big to be successful if you're smarter and more confident than your opponent.

Remember: Intelligence (coaching) leads to Speed--Speed leads to Performance--Performance leads Wins--Wins lends to Confidence--Confidence lends to Swagger. Swagger (auto-pilot dominance in all phases) leads to Championships.

Its not like people are complaining about a nation's worst UM defense from 2 or 3 years ago. This defense took the field last season and there hasn't been any football played since, so whats the problem with someone discussing our most recent defense? Its not a fact yet that the defense has improved, so u can't push that on anyone. One opinion is based in fact (the defense sucked last season) and the other is based off of opinion, prediction and conjecture. So who should really be berated who?

Same talking to death risk if hired Harriet as DC, so I guess she's out too.

When any of the Sybil's write I see a lot of words, but all I hear is blah blah blah blah blah blah.

speaking of defense,how long before some of these four and give star DB's start jumping ship? you can't play them all,but we continue to bring in guys,(some of them haven't been so impressive to this point.

Posted by: SL | August 25, 2013 at 11:16 AM

The defenses wore down because they were on the field way too long as a result of the flawed strategy of the coach and DC. Their plan is admittedly designed to hold teams out of the endzone and to FG's, but whta does mean concerning the rest of the field? If yards are being conceded every series and 3rd downs are continually converted, then the players will burn out. Correct? Sequence of events. Don't need to be an "expert" to see/notice cause and effect. One thing led to the other.

We had the "horses" and depth U sound just like them lol. We need the coaches.

SL,

So what you're saying is the scheme is fine it's just the players fault. Gotcha

coach golden really have his flock trained.

If a kid leaves the team, it's because he's scared to compete or he feels entitled,
If a recruit chooses anther team it's because he's scared to compete or the his family is being paid under the table, our defense was bad last year because the kids were too small and not in shape. We we're the 116th ranked defense because Shannon kids were soft about of shape. only 4 teams played worst defense then university of Miami because we played freshmen. Are we missing anything else?
Since only the university of Miami has weights and we will be bigger and stronger and our opponents will be the same size as last year. Ok that makes sense. Because im sure no other coaching staffs have off season workouts where their players have gotten bigger and stronger.

Golden,

Job well done.

mountaincane, but U steady reading them in their entirety and hating because U don't have the ability to think own your own or conceptualize anything but what you've been told. U are a good ole boy Stephen, a loyal servant--someone just needs to tell u that we are free now though--U don't have to do this. Grab a book...its ok.

We can think and write because we read. Thats the key to intelligence. Read other's ideas, thoughts and feelings and then conceptualize your own. Thats true freedom--you should try it instead of trying to persuade people not to--out of jealousy and envy. u can do it too brutha. Go upstairs and ask Grandma Cybil if she has any books with words. Calvin this Calvin that, Sybil's, Calvin, Calvin, CALVIIIIINNNNNNNNN!

Obsessed with that man LOL!

Harriet and Calvin equal same gator moron.

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

Clap Clap, lol, great work once again, these buzzards don't get it man. We've waited 2 years for defense. It doesn't take 2 years to start playing solid defense if you know what you're doing. Case in point, time walton was the d-co in 2007 and was trash and got trashed(but even still he was way better than who we got now), than bill young came in, in 2008, called some real good games(highleted but shutting dowh the eventual national champion gaytors and had oscar cryer nervous) and looked like trash in other games so he rolled out(still looked way better than clown 117th) than john lovett came in in 2009 to 2010 and we were a top 25 defense, at one point top 2 against the pass.

So how is it that these guys came in and coached for 1 year and we knew they had a clue about how to coach defenses, but the guy we got right now, has 2 years of proof he has no clue at this level. He was trying to get that headcoaching job to save his oaching career cause he knows if he can't coach defense at UM, that's not a good look.

You can know schemes and this and that but you also gotta be able to relate to the players something he doesn't do well, so maybe clown 117th needs to go to the pro-ranks where they can't pull the stunts they pulling now and will probably get swung on. What they're asking us to do is give clown 117th the benefit of the doubt when this guy has had 2 years/over 20 something games to figure it out and when your defense looks worst at the end of the year than it did at the beginning of the year, whatever you teaching is either not translating to the players or not working, and i'm sure it's not the players.

Also, had ray ray armstrong been a linebacker, they would've asked him to put on another 25lbs to get him around 245 to 250 and than he would've been no good to the nfl either. If you're a 240lb linebacker in college, your ceiling is going to be limited. If denzel wants to have a longer career he needs to drop 10 to 15 lbs.

So many so called Miami fans totally obsessed with the Florida Gators. they think the only prerequisite for being a Cane fan is hating the Florida gators, down talking them, and ability to twist the spelling of FloridUh, Gaytors, Gatahs, Floridumdum etc.. that makes them true Cane fans lol. They think this blog's only utility is too talk smack about the Gators. So any talk about our own team is not welcomed. U can tell who they are because their ID's are always a misspelled Gator configuration of some kind. They don't look in the mirror--all of their problems in life stem from someone else. They need a villain or enemy to feel relevant. But at the same time are the types of dudes that will tell a black person to get over slavery in a minute lol. Hypocrites.

ROFL, "coach golden really have his flock trained", it is Sunday, he got a bunch of witnesses in here.

Oh, other teams lift weights too, lol, good reminder to these clowns, and as for me, i don't care about statistics, what i care about is knowing that our athletes on defense are better than your athletes on offense. Seeing jimmy gaines in 2011 lined up in press-man over that runningback from Virginia and neither coach goldie nore clown 117th called a time-out, anybody with common sense knew that was going to be a touchdown, but all we heard was jimmy gaines being the only one to take accountability which he didn't have to because he couldn't cover that guy 1 on 1 no day of the week, and all we heard coach goldie & his minion do is blame ray ray armstrong.

First off, how did Virginia even get to be in that favorable match up in the first place. We know jimmy gaines is not going to ever be a good linebacker in pass coverage, just like dzp at 240lbs, alex figs might be decent though, but he'll have to play aggressive pass coverage defense like eddie "bath salts" johnson did, he was good at it.

It's comical hearing coach goldie say after each signing day "we recruited kids to our core values, they're tuff, competitors, rangy, animated" this & that, all the coach speak and than you look up, most of them are gone. Alot these kids are buying that b.s. coach goldie selling. He loses all credibility with the defensive players because they know clown 117th is inept but since he's goldie's boy he's still here.

I saw many posters charge shannon with playing favorites, saying "it brought down the morale of the team" but those ones who criticized shannon have been real quiet about a coach, keeping his favorite coach on staff although he shouldn't when his unit is 117th.

Also, i james coley comes out and the offense is struggling, coach goldie better no say one negative word against coach coley in his first year when his boy is going into his 3rd year being ranked 117th! I'm almost wanting us to be ranked around the same thing because i don't want us to be ranked in the top 50 cause that'll give a false sense that he actually knows what he's doing when in fact it more than likely be because of the soft scheduling tatic.

We got players putting on alot of weight but the defense is still being touted as "bigger, stronger & faster" lol. I don't recall seeing any defensive players in the tops of nothing in the 40 times.

Tyrone Cornelius came in as a big DB with 4.42 speed. Now as a beefy LB, he is running 4.72s. Thurston Armbrister came as a Trackster running 4.4s to 4.5s, and now he is also in the 4.7/40 clubs. There isn't a single LB below a 4.7/40. It's clear the bigger is there, but faster? Calvin Come on man!

What's also funny is hearing coach goldie say, "chick played for us at 245 to 255 last year, he's 275 right so he's all grown up, denzel played for us at 218 now he's 240lbs"

As far as chick playing at 245/255lbs, so did javeon clowney and a whole lot of other effective defensive ends in college football. gilbert who came in from wisconsin is around that size so who said a defensive end had to be 275lbs to be effective, lol. this is a joke, we better get use to looking forward to seeing a lot of runningbacks getting around the corner on our defensive ends at those weights.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing with what i posted, but you definitely understood my point. All these people talking about we "bigger, stronger & faster" when denzel for one clearly said he's running the same times he did before even though he put on more weight.

I bet if we do their shuttle times those have gone up, not to many people are going to get bigger and faster at those weights, just doesn't make sense, but goldie vampire bitten crew will sing that same song as long as soon as coach goldie cue's them up.

Cal, those coaches came in and were successful immediately because of our greatest natural resource: our recruiting background "State of Miami" region, the talent that it produces and the coaching that, that talent has been exposed to since 3rd grade muni & pop warner and optimist leagues.

How coaches are able to come in and convince "die-hard" Cane fans that our PROVEN recruiting grounds and its athletes are behind or not adequate enough for their style of defense is beyond me.

The State of Miami" recruit is a PROVEN commodity! Yall love to reference our 5 national championships by 4 different coaches and several others in between that have come and gone. But what is the only constant from all their tenures? The Miami/Florida recruit--they brought Us those rings and that mystique that made U a fan in the first place.

So why don't they receive your loyalty? Why is it that when they depart--they suddenly become weak, inadequate, soft, dumb, and prima donnas? What makes the unproven commodity more beloved and protected than the proven commodity? Now our players haven't been coached and lack confidence coming in from Dade, Broward, and palm Beach counties??? Seriously?? That the EXACT opposite of this demographic's traits or characteristics.

Is that why somel of our feeder schools are playing on ESPN this weekend? Because they don't play good coached football and there's suspect talent in the region?

Yall need to check yourselves.

Cal, "The Truth" just proved your point with his post, then said, "Calvin Come on man" lol! ???I'm confused lol!

The poster "Reality" is right, people just don't want U to be right, they just don't want the truth from certain people.

They judge the messenger, instead of the message.

Explains their appearances-based fetish and loyalty.

Make it plain! If anybody doesn't understand this post or refutes, i can assure you, you're not a UM/Hurricane fan.

Here's another myth i want to dispell, i've said it before, but this adds on to what was just posted as well, i laugh when i hear or see "The U invented swagger" cause i know just like alot of other people that whatever people call swagger wasn't invented at UM, it came from how alot of us live & lived our lives in Miami and around South Florida and that was aggressive and confident no matter what we do or did.

When guys got to Miami they already felt they were the best before they got there it was just time top prove it some more to whoever else was their already. The way them BOOKER T. boys played yesterday is they way many schools in Miami play, it's about dominating. This another reason why j70 and the rest of the crew that came from the west, there only down fall was, they came into UM being looked at as the saviours of the program, had they come into UM at a time when UM still had the same stable cornerstone coaching staff and players, the majority of them would've excelled even higher.

When they came in knowing they were better than alot of the guys in front of them, with all the attention they got, quite naturally the other guys on the team were going to have some animosity towards that, but some of them only excelled a lil bit because once they beat the guy out in front of them they didn't know they needed to push pass that point even further and shannon didn't have the coaches do help him do that.

lol, which is exactly why i said i'm not sure if he agreeing or disagreeing but at the end of the day the point reigned Supreme is all i care about. I'm not sure about him, but it's funny sometimes watching those that try to be your enemies end up unknowingly posting the same facts, lol!

Jesus, everyone here knows that Calvin and HarrietTubmanCane are the same person, the least you can do is not talk to yourself.

But they say U are the racist though Cal! Cal, U are the racist one LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What endears them to Coach Golden and D'No so fast and so hard as to begin to question our proven recruiting region and its players?

You know, unless there are multiple 12 year old girls on this blog writing "lol, LMAO, and ROFL)...

^^^^the only possible come back or response to the truth being told. Evade, evade, and discredit the source. Evade, evade, and discredit the source. Yall getting the type of team yall deserve.

If expectations aren't being set by those who AREN'T getting paid (the fans)....then who is going to set them?

Cal, dudes don't want to believe that Swagger is a response to and by-product of the struggle, depression, and systematic socioeconomic stagnation presented in the streets. Its stems from slavery when our condition was so despondent that we forced ourselves into positive self-talk and almost over-confident thoughts of ourselves as a coping mechanism to the madness. They want to believe that the colors orange and green (the colors they admittedly and literally root for--not the kids inside the green and orange colored uniforms) won those championships and invented that swagger that they combat Florida Gator/FSU fans with.

It was harnessed and redirected in Coral Gables but it wasn't created there. They want their imprint on everything they hold dear and recognize with. They have a superiority and God complex.

I was at the fla ga games yesterday in Atlanta. I saw a not much smaller tallahasse Lincoln team beat up on s. Gwinnett and a much smaller BTW beat the 6A champs norcross 55-0. Norcross and Gwinnett were huge and slow. Proves a small fast defense with a lot of hats on the ball is the staple of any fla team.

Superiority and God complex?

Read your own post you nutjob.

Where in posts did in big up myself, gloat, express superiority of a God complex. God doesn't struggle, isn't limited, and could never be enslaved at any point. my posts recognized deficiencies in my demographic (no matter how they came to be--not the main issue or topic). God has no deficiencies so how do I have a superiority or God complex, when I'm admittedly flawed, limited and at times in need?

"Cal, dudes don't want to believe that Swagger is a response to and by-product of the struggle, depression, and systematic socioeconomic stagnation presented in the streets.

That's where you big upped yourself, gloated, and expressed superiority of a god complex.
