Former Hurricane hoops star Dequan Jones takes shot at NCAA after Manziel ruling

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel got a half's worth of a suspension handed down to him Wednesday, an agreement Texas A&M and the NCAA reached because the star quarterback violated NCAA bylaw 12.5.2.1 by signing autographs.

Manziel will sit out the first half of the Aggies' opener against Rice Saturday, a mere slap on the wrist even though Manziel is accused of actually selling his signature to memorabilia dealers.

Not everyone seemed happy for Manziel -- including former Hurricanes basketball star Dequan Jones.

Jones was forced to sit out 11 games his senior year as part of the Nevin Shapiro booster investigation. Shapiro claimed that former UM assistant Jake Morton asked Shapiro for $10,000 to secure Jones, then a recruit. Jones was allowed to return to action after the NCAA couldn’t find evidence against him.

Jones, now in his second year with the Orlando Magic, took to Twitter to express his thoughts on how how quickly the Manziel mess was worked out.

Think about how much resources could be saved if the Sybils just had this conversation inside their collective pea brain. Get a new schtick.

Dumb ass Harriett doesn't even know what out means. Says she's out then writes the same thing 10 more times.

Oh, that out. we already knew that. duh.

Beamer Ball loses ANOTHER starter for the season. dUh

My advice for the gambling degenerates in South Florida. Bet Roll Tide Roll, and LAY THE bloody POINTS!!

Because the Crimson Tide will surely Roll all over Virginia Tech on Saturday evening. Eh. What say.


Get a new schtick.

Perhaps Y-O-U should take your narrow-minded mentality back to that Canespace!

Miami 45

F.A.U. 10

But U apparently and obviously can't help but read every word I write mountaincane. U can't refute any of it, become enraged and then send insults...lol!

"Pea brain", but U don't have the ability to carry a conversation free of insults.

THE DUKE will ' get his ' tonight. That's a fait accompli. hUh

So I want to see Miami's backup RB's get some playing time, and see what they're all about.

Again, F.A.U has a very, very physically undersize FRONT SEVEN. Which would indicate Miami runs, runs, runs and runs some more this evening! Eh. What say.


The post below using the screen name Tubman makes it very clear that the author of the ridiculous, lost in space diatribe is really Calvin. Just look at the word usage and phrases that Cal/Tubman use...strikingly familiar to all of the other posts.

Also, the utter nonsense aimed at Coach Golden is almost to the word consistent with the hate we've read over the many months courtesy of Calvin.

The bottom line? This guy is a flat-out wingnut Gator who posts on this blog 24/7 pretending to be a Cane.

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

UGoCanes, The same appraisal or standards any other coach would have. What conditions? A few suspensions his first season? What has the NCAA done to him, other than conduct an investigation that he admittedly doesn't even see? Excuse, excuse, excuses, U think finding and delivering excuses on this blog makes u a real Canes fan, but you're wrong. Our team had its highest scholastic achievement numbers ever under Shannon (but i'm not gonna get draped off from the true relevant topic, which is Golden).

Yes discipline when he warned his players but the leadership above him had already been intimate with that snake, which compromised whatever RS had to say. Kids figured if everyone else is spending his money and having fun, then why shouldn't I as well. Shalala had a ball partying with him and he was buddies with the board members and trustees. Thats why he was already running amok as U say.

It is a process whether I like it or not, but the process begins with adequate coaches who understand that accountability begins with them, they have to live it themselves. Coaches that understand that defense wins championship. ESPN just did a whole segment on the SEC's dominance and how it (numbers wise) all comes down to DEFENSE! They focus on and develop defense first and foremost.

THATS NOT SABAN'S TEMPLATE ---THATS OUR TEMPLATE U TURNCOAT!!!!!

Get off his balls for once and realize that the kids of the State of Miami" are here and always will be ready for a coach to lead them (scheme and intelligence-wise) to the NC game annually!

The Offense had better to similar numbers under Shannon so why would I reference it??? Gallo puts the numbers up all the time, and I've checked myself.

Thanks for your one daily flip and deflect post of the day: calling someone racist, then be racist, misrepresent stats and facts, regurgitate the annual excuses, call opposing views "trolling" and biased--when thats exactly what yours are. Biased towards an unproven product, evidenced by the fact that the product has been financed and given a raise before any evaluations can reasonably be made on their effectiveness at their roles. But the NCAA are a**holes tho.

U dudes create monsters everyday and step back and complain. The victim role--but yall talk about people on food stamps and such. Y don't yall pull yourselves up by your own boot straps? Be a man and not a hypocrite for once.

I'm out Cal, U got this.

They are the same person, part of the Sybil group. Just writes under the faux intellectual persona (harriett), the ghetto brand calvin, brit retard (Dumb Dumb D), the ling list/short unit brand (gallo), etc.

Stalker alert.

Again nothing to the board, after getting man handled again. LOL

Talk football why don't you.

Aw, sad you didn't get a mention??

Mountain Cane,

Your post is spot on my friend!

Your response to the so-called "True Cane" (Just another Calvy alias) was good for a laugh...thank you!

Go Canes!

Cal swallow your pride and do yourself a favor and check out bg's last few post on EOTH.

You won't be disappointed!!

Lol

FINALLY A LITTLE OVER 5 HRS AND COUNTING AND THE TALK IS OVER TIME TO GET THIS CANE THANG GOING!! I HAVE TO TAPE THE GAME BUT WILL WATCH IT AND SAVE MY HONEST COMMENTS TIL AFTER 2:00AM WHEN I WILL FINALLY GET SETTLED HOME.
MY PREDICTION REMAINS THE SAME: MIAMI 55 FAU 10 THE DEFENSE NEEDS TO DOMINATE FOR CONFIDENCE AND THE OFFENSE NEEDS TO DOMINATE BECAUSE THEY CAN AND SHOULD.. IF THE GAME IS NOT PLAYED IN A DOMINATING FASHION THAN THIS FALLS ON GOLDEN AND STAFF FOR NOT HAVING THIS TEAM PREPARED.. THE TEAM LEADERS SHOULD MAKE SURE GUYS DO THEIR JOBS AND EVERY THING WILL BE FINE. THE ONLY THING THAT WILL BRING THE PERFORMANCE LEVEL DOWN IS TURNOVERS, THAT IS OUT OF THE COACHES HANDS BUT ONLY THE FIRST HALF AFTERWARDS ANY PLAYER WHO HAS COMMITED TWO TURNOVERS MUST SIT DOWN IF ONLY BRIEFLY.. TO CUT DOWN ON TURNOVERS IS A STRONG RUNNING GAME.. GET DUKE GOING AND KEEP HIM GOING AND THIS WILL OPEN UP THE AIRWAVES FOR MORRIS. (I SEE 4 TDS/MAYBE 5) AND 2 TDS BY DUKE.. IT'S TIME TO COME OUT AND SHOW THE COUNTRY REGARDLESS OF OPPONENT THAT THIS YEAR THE CANES "WILL BE THE THE FIRST". GO CANES AFTER TONIGHT'S KO NO MORE CAPS UNLESS I'M PISSED.

Go Canes---inside of 5 hours.

As my coach used to say---the only game we can win today is against FAU.

Some here are looking forward to the gayterds and that is a mistake. The Sybil group is obsessed with last year and prior and that is really dumb. We can't win next week or last year's games.

Go canes
Love my U

Thats the difference between tbe SEChillbillies and cane fans

I will never cheer for a conference. Last nt i heard the SEc SEc SEC chants at the end. Who does that?

The big 10 big 12 and pac 12 never did that when they dominated college football. You rednecks are pAthetic

USC was gassed, ESpN drove me effn nuts all night. The whole show was an SEC and Clowney advertisement. reece davis coldnt get the sec c....k out of his a55 long enough to make an unbiased annuncement. Clowney is out of shape, and overrated. The heisman hype and hope is done, to espns dismay.

Clemson will destroy USC

Calvin you loser... You liked what you saw last night? Fffff u you stupid welfare rat! Go back to alachua and root muchump from your trailer you loser

UM 65
FAU 14

Why not IU put 73 on their in state rival Indiana state!

Size and weight don't equal winning or championship. Heart, desire,willpower , discipline and trust win games and championships. Its not the size of the dog. But the heart of the dog that's in him .

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog!

UM should be able to look past FAU...the 31 point line hasent moved all week....

green peas seem to be hedging their opinions about golden/dnofrio.....UM should win by AT LEAST 31 points.....

how much weaker can a team get than FAU?

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

Tell that to Nick Saban and Alabama and also Steve Spurrier and South Carolina ...I'm sure they both could use a good laugh!

You see Calvy...the best coach in all of college football, Al Golden, is building a team with enormous fight in them...AND ENORMOUS STRENGTH AND SIZE.

ron zook and mountain cane are afraid of FAU....thats funny

Man where have you been, haven't you heard, i'm sure coach goldie "hopes" to cover that spread!

3-9 team with wins over wagner, troy and western ky and the green peas are afraid, lol......

if UM has close game I would just never come back to this blog.....it wont be worth the abuse I will bring......

GO FAU!!!!

Let's face it. The NCAA plays favorites. If we were better, the NCAA would have wrapped up our case two years ago... We would have received no further bowl bans and maybe one or two scholarship reductions... We have no one to blame but ourselves for not being a better team to earn that special treatment. Let's make it into the top 10 this year and maybe the NCAA will finally make up its mind.

Look kids...Calvy has brought out his Gallo alias and is having yet another conversation with himself...very funny indeed!

Gallo/sybil,

Only a moron looks past the only game you can play on a given day. You are certainly qualified.

Calvy and all your aliases,

Just so you know...we Canes fans are thoroughly enjoying the arse whopping Mountain Cane has been administering to you.

Right about now Calvy should be dragging out his Harriet alias.

lol, man, all i'm saying is, here's another thing, we should never be down in this game at no point. I wouldn't be surprised if FAU comes out and bombed us, fake option read, fake the pitch, drop back and bomb us. It's not like this defense is that hard to prepare for, lol. I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen tonight, one things for sure, FAU, they gone test to see if we actually have a pass rush, if not, lol.

Sure Calvina, I'm sure they gone (whatever that is)to see.

Moron.

Thanks, zook. I think Harriette is the lead Sybil personality and Lady Calvina just surfaces to fixate on men and their weights. Oh, and pretend to discuss football in order to hang with the guys---you know, get to say things like

penetration
press coverage
etc.

"one things for sure, FAU, they gone test to see if we actually have a pass rush, if not, lol"

"I hope" (like coach no' d) a freshman isn't our best pass rusher tonight. 3g I need to see some of that utough schtick put to work.
