UM Hurricanes running back Danny Dillard no longer on team. Confirmed.

Yesterday it was Dyron Dye.

Now it's Danny Dillard.

UM confirmed this morning that 6-2, 210-pound running back Danny Dillard, a redshirt freshman from Bradenton and graduate of Venice High, is no longer on the team.

On Monday, when UM was practicing on Mark Light Field (baseball field), my colleague from CanesInsider, Brandon Odoi, noticed that freshman linebacker (and track speedster) Walter Tucker -- listed in the UM media almanac as 6-0 and 205 pounds and on the depth chart as 6-0 and 226 -- was practicing as a running back. He is now listed as a fullback behind starter Maurice Hagens.

According to his UM bio, Dillard was a three-star recruit with rivals.com and scout.com, the No. 35 running back prospect according to rivals and No. 62 according to scout. He finished his junior season at Venice High with 1,300 yards and 25 touchdowns.

If the expectation is that we all have to qualify/substantiate our opinions with evidence or facts, then I'll go next: Prove or provide proof that Al Golden is the best football coach in America (like yall say)?

Posted by: HarrietTubmanCane | August 20, 2013 at 04:03 PM

Also, there is a big difference in saying "Al Golden is the best coach in America" (even though we haven't) and "Al Golden pressured someone to leave" One is an opinion and one is an accusation. The accusation is the one needing proof

So D came to the defense of himself twice as two different people lol? Then U begin your next post mentioning 3 different people??? Why don't you just speak to one of Us if we are the same person. Responding to 3, just makes U look dumb right? U sure are honoring Us as different people...U seem a bit confused.

U opinion that he left to have a clear shot elsewhere, was also not reported, so how did U come up with that? Yup, its your opinion, just like what D says is his opinion.

This is a blog and everyone aint what U think is "normal"--in Jacksonville yall think alot of stuff is normal that we probably don't lol. Everybody aint like U--grow up. Why do U keep saying "We"-- I'm talking to U. U don't see Us talking about "we" because there is no groups, but U just proved there is a good ole boy group though. I could easily say that you are: Ron Zook, mountain cane, Five Titles, Reality, Commom Sense, and the fake everybody. But I don't need to label U a troll to discredit your comments because they differing from my own or say that you are only one person--because I don't want to believe that there's more than one dissenting viewpoint out there in the world. U dudes need to travel and see the world. Yall have a very small concept and view. Your consciousness is low.

Questioning 3 player departures in a week is not making a ridiculous statement "out of thin air". Is that not enough circumstantial evidence to form an opinion with?

Harriet"s posts confirm she is a lying mentally ill member of Sybil's pea brain.

^^Ron Zook just admitted he has said that...see stop saying "we" like you're in some group and stop speaking for other men--he has said that numerous times lol.

Ron Zook that is classic good ole boy talk: "the proof is that i said it" daggumit LMAO!!!!!!

I've had two screen names in 10 years, one being my own real name--what about yourself?

Agree on the comparison of a clown arguing about #117 vs #116 and the long island vs staten island bit. With all the name calling and ill will a very good point D made was totally ignored.
A player that you recruited and has been in the program, practicing with the team and going through all the camps for 2 years is usually much more valuable and productive than an incoming unheralded freshman. It is fair to question why such a player is so easily cast aside. It's not like the incoming freshman replacement is the top recruit in the nation or such.
Expect a big year form the Canes, no excuses, if not a regime change is needed.

Ron Zook thinks that talking Cane football consists of:

reposting peoples comments
reposting articles of praise form other sites
dismissing everyone as trolls
lying to himself that Golden is the best college football coach in America
updating Us on whats currently on television
updating Us on Tim Tebow's passing % and QBR (as if its relevant to real Cane fans)

Can't think clearly without some form of opposition motivation or a villain to hate. So U create (one) to self-medicate. Superiority and inferiority complexes at the same damn time...ouch.

Miramar,

You have no idea why he left. Prob because he couldn't see far enough up the ladder to see Duke.

Yawn. Don't waste any time providing "proof" for the false straw man argument the troll asked for. I already showed the troll proof to a "bunch" of his questions, and he refused to accept that I was right and he was wrong, wrong, wrong.

So, when he posts a fake "Al Golden is the Best coach in the NCAA" as delUsionalcane (one of his fake IDs), just to then demand proof, you can know that his obsession has reached a new low.

Do we have five very similar trolls all claiming to be from Canespace, or do we have one very obsessed Gator that reads Canespace and starts posting as their IDs whenever that person leaves that blog or any other blog, like when he posts as OGV, or canesrule, or UMike, or Feral Cat, or any other ID he decides to assume?

I think the answer has been shown over the years. Keep reading Canespace, troll, they love your attention.

It is generally recognized that only some members of a split-personality brain are aware of the others. It may actually be true that Harriet thinks she's never used other names.

Maybe Dillard has been practicing for 2 years and still has not picked up the offense . I am confident their is a good reason . You don't just cut a player with that much time invested without a reason . Go Canes

Anyone need an example of blind arrogance?

Miramar,

You have no idea why he left. Prob because he couldn't see far enough up the ladder to see Duke.

Posted by: Mountain Cane | August 20, 2013 at 05:05 PM

^^^Miramar has no idea, but then U go on to give your own idea of why he left. Huh??? So he can't post his idea, but U can...ok..got it.

Ron Zook has said that about Golden numerous times and the proof is all over previous blogs. there is no proof for al golden being the best coach, so that the real reason no one should be looking for any. My point about opinions was made, but of course you missed it lol. U reposted a bunch of unclear and out of sequenced discussions I had with several bloggers in hopes of a smokescreen would prove a point--but U failed. I'm not above insulting U if u insult me first--so AGAIN whats your point? Wrong about what? Talk about "proof' U cannot prove anything U are saying lol! All this troll business is an excuse for not being intelligent. "Dude, I don't have to respond because he's a friction troll dude!" Whats your name? U scared lol!


Maybe Dillard has been practicing for 2 years and still has not picked up the offense .

Posted by: Ga Cane | August 20, 2013 at 05:08 PM
*****************

If the kid couldn't ' learn ' the offense in two seasons.

Then how did he qualify for acceptance into the University of Miami, Florida!

Chit, that's a WEAK rationalization coming from Peach state cane. hUh

All I know is SOMETHING AIN'T Kosher. When a Hurricane player is gone from the program after two years.


I have been quiet with my dislike of Golden. I am waiting for at least 10 wins, before I will comment. JaxCane is very typical of my city. I have commented previously and was the only one from Jacksonville. This is not a town with historical Miami fans. I do not see JaxCane as having knowledge of Miami's history. He is not adding anything worthwhile to this blog.


Superiority and inferiority complexes at the same damn time...ouch.

Posted by: HarrietTubmanCane | August 20, 2013 at 05:02 PM
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Damyum, seems like RON ZOOK needs a cranial, ENEMA! Eh. What say.


haha well that's entertaining. I am quite fond of Miami's history. But because I challenge a statement that was pulled out of thin air about Golden pressuring Daniel to leave, I don't know the history? I am not saying that Golden is the best coach ever but I am willing to give him the benefit of doubt because I recognize the dump the program was in two years ago.

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

Harriet and all of your aliases,

Look, I get you are jealous and are desperate to be in the class of all us Canes, but my slow thinking cowardly Gator...that's just not gonna happen...now or ever!

I also know it sends your tiny pea brain into orbit when you read positive comments about the Canes on this University of Miami Sports Blog and the others you troll day and night.

Your worthless life would at least be tolerable if you accepted the facts that you are a pathological liar, are well below average in every metric, have no spine and the world needs garbage collectors. And if you immediately stopped trying to out smart Canes on this blog in which there intellects are mostly North of 100 and your intellect is well South of 10.

The bottom-line? You're an ignorant, cowardly, lying Gator fool...just own it baby!

the bottom-line is that I've been a Canes fan since 1987. Been blogging for almost ten seasons under my real government name, has sent pics from games and have met fellow Cane fans after games. I'm also more intelligent than U evidenced by my ability to tell the truth. U see--there isn't one lie in that post you reposted above (you do all of those things). But in your post, there's nothing but fictions. I'm a documented Cane fan in every way possible so ignorant, cowardly, Gator fan and liar I am not. You're projecting again. we cab sling insults all day, but my credibility can be substantiated---can U say the same? U aren't a Canes fan because you're obsessed with Al Golden. Loving Al Golden is not a prerequisite for being a Canes fan. He isn't UM football, just a part of it, and we all know that coaches come and go.

Everyone's a gator but U, even though your alias is an ex-Gator coach??? Yall dudes are walking oxymorons lol.

When is this going to stop? I have never ever seen stuff like this happen in the history of UM football.

It's always happened. It happens at every program. Now we just have every detail reported and over analyzed thanks to twitter and the internet.

YO D, You Special Ed Dumb Arse. Its a good thing for spell check, need to focus on grammar check!!! Loser.

Harriet, you are a self professed canes fan. There is zero evidence to support that.

Yes there is, U just don't have it. There's zero evidence that you are though.

Anyone need an example of blind arrogance?

Miramar,

You have no idea why he left. Prob because he couldn't see far enough up the ladder to see Duke.

ROFL, this is why this man is luv'd & hated, after reading that one dawg, this song instantly popped up in my head, these clowns don't know who they messing with:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyEE0qpfeig

Harriet, you're confusing your persona with dumb dumb D.

Evidence that people don't make available is not evidence. It is at best concealed evidence, or more likely in your case, not evidence.

All this danny dillard talk, it's clear how coach goldie operates and has been operating.

I'll tell yall what's been proven, it doesn't matter how much proof you bring to this board, will you dealing with vast majority of imbeciles that post here, proof doesn't matter. Just ask jim gallo when he kept saying "coach goldie turned down the acc championship game" alot of these same clowns were bashing em saying "coach said he didn't have nothing to do with it"

Than comes ACC media day and Lo & Behold, shayon green says basically and flat out "coach goldie made the decision not to play in that ACC championship game cause he thought it was in the best interest for the future".

After that all you heard were crickets, so what's next, shayon green is lying.

Lady Calvina, it was your brainmate Harriet who said evidence not necessary.

Calvina chirping on about an incident he knows nothing about. The Trustees made the decision, you dope. Green heard about it from them.

Even you don't think coaches make policy decisions do you? Does Golden set the minimum entrance standards? Why do they even have a president, much less all that Trustee talent.

Exactly Cal LMAO!!!! I'm about to stop though, this is bordering on child abuse.

A wise man told me, " don't speak to fools, they scorn the wisdom of your words."

Like the blogger "Reality" said, its not that they disagree with me, its that they don't like how I do it so openly. Like I'm supposed to be scared of someone or something?? Maybe I'm a threat because I don't seem to care about fitting in...beats me...their issue not mine.

It isn't necessary for an opinion, but if someone is claiming a statement as fact, then maybe. What did that have to do with Calvin's post though? Gallo claimed fact when he said what he said about Golden, then media day came and he was able to provide the needed proof. If Gallo would've said, "i think golden turned down the ACC championship game", then that would have been an opinion and no evidence would've been necessary. Get it now son?

Rumor has it that the NCAA decision on punishment will be handed down within the next 2 days. Can anyone confirm or discredit this at the Miami Herald?

What's with getting rid of the Double D's?

Exactly Cal LMAO!!!! I'm about to stop though, this is bordering on child abuse.

You know we pray for a wind to come and hurry up and burn it down, you field me! They don't like us talking bout mr. goldie like we do, he's be's good coach, so they say! They will defend him at all cost, mediocre and all. It's going to be fun once the nc2a comes out with their b.s., let's see how real coach goldie is then to UM.

Although if the punishment is anywhere close to what penn disgrace got, it'll be High Time to shut the nc2a down for sure. Let's see if they give us enuff punishment to make us want to go to court but not enuff punishment where it's worth going to court over.

This will help coach goldie understand better why aldarius johnson did what he did. Being Truthful as you can to the devil is foolish guidance!

this space is 80 percent trolls, 20 percent 'Canes fans. unbelievable.

Long Island, Staten Island, eh, what's the difference right?

When you're ignorant maggots like D and Calvin, it's all the same baby! No time for education or geography or getting the facts straight. Only time for posting insane nonsense that should get you outfitted with a straightjacket.

bro, you guys are some stupid dudes.

Being Truthful as you can to the devil is foolish guidance!

Damn, I stealing that one OG. Like why would anyone really try to ingratiate themselves to or come clean with the dirtiest animal (NCAA). Devils don't honor virtue.

"Devils don't honor virtue."

yea, but all I got in this world is my word and my balls. and I ain't breaking them for nobody!!

At the end of the day a man gotta stand on his own two. I respect those kids for standing tall and doing the right thing by the U.

There's an old saying; play p*ssy long enough and you get F@$Ked!

ok mp, I feel you!

I think we did Dyron Dye dirty. The kid made a mistake, but the punishment is too severe.

Harriet,

You claim you were a Cane fan in 1987…that’s almost 3 decades after my first Canes game. Yet, length of time does not equate to wisdom, integrity or courage, which your posts reflect none of.

I always enjoy you keyboard bad arses who roar like lions on blogs, but you would be a kitten never saying those same things/lies when face-to-face with me, Al Golden, Mark D’Onofrio or any other real Cane.

The real Canes fans do in fact have loyalty. That is best expressed by most all former Canes who invented swagger and refined the concept of loyalty. Your kind, like Gallo, Calvin and the other aliases wouldn’t even be allowed in the same room with the Canes who built this great football program from nothing to what many consider the best football program over the last 30 years.

Real Canes fans see toughness, loyalty, a man who respects our traditions and a winner in Coach Al Golden. Real Canes fans are very grateful that Al Golden didn’t abandon ship the instant the severity of the NCAA investigation was revealed and instead chose to stay and miraculously steer the program away from almost certain death as Mark Emmert and the NCAA planned.

Finally, we real Canes recognize you wannabes and know you could never be a real Cane by evidence of your stupid and cowardly words…and given the opportunity I will gladly say that when face-to-face with you, Gallo, Calvin or any of the other phonies that post on this University of Miami Blog.

I normally don't read this clowns post, but for some reason i did this time and i continue to see why i don't, let's analyze this imbeciles post!

"Real Canes fans see toughness, loyalty, a man who respects our traditions and a winner in Coach Al Golden."

I guess 13 & 11 is considered being a winner now by a so called "real UM fan" man GTFOH

First off you don't just walk off from making over 1.3mil and his "destination job".

Next his agent was going to tell coac goldie what he already knows, the investigation gave him instant leverage and instant job security for a few more years and another raise to 1.9mil to go 7 & 5.

If you want the real True Cane fans to be grateful, we will be as soon as coach goldie takes 500K of his money and go and bring in a real d-co so we can start playing championship defense again like we normally did for well over 30 years. I'll say it again, we need somebody in here that will put these players back into position to PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP defense again. But instead, coach goldie is hog-tying the money up, you get a real good d-co in here for 500K, believe that.

We'll be grateful when coach goldie stops betraying young players who signed up to play for UM and let them grow into man-hood, instead of cutting 3rd & 4th year players, he keeps cutting freshman and redshirt freshman.

We'll be real grateful when coach goldie stops putting all this emphasis on height & weight charts and stop heading our defense down the path of being one of the slowest defenses in the nation and the worst defense in the nation based on the talent he has access too, i mean i don't think understand how bad you really have to be to be 117th in the nation.

We'll be grateful when coach goldie stops trying to appease the nc2a, the administration and focus soley on this football team, it's either them or Us.

We'll be grateful when coach goldie stops criticizing the life boat offense that enable him to be 7 & 5 and starts criticizing his boy clown 117th instead of the players for being 117th.

We got 2 coaches that somehow believe conceding yards on defense has a receipe somewhere in there for success. If they conceding yards, than we'l be grateful after games where we don't hear coach goldie conceding that another team(Fsu only down 16 to 13 in the 4th quarter) is "a lil bit ahead of us right now".

I'll add, i think coach cutcliffe, tom obrien, the boston college team can all use the same speech coach goldie gave us after the Fsu loss. When he ignorantly said "it's ok, they're a lil bit ahead of us right now"

If it takes al goldie getting fired for clown 117th to be gone i'm all in.

We'll definitely be gratefull if coach goldie moves clown 117th to the press box so it'll help him see the b.s. he's calling is b.s. and why it's not working.

I think we did Dyron Dye dirty. The kid made a mistake, but the punishment is too severe.

Part of troll shalala & coach goldie's grand scheme, another sacrificial lamb.

We'll be grateful when come signing day, coach goldie stops telling us how great the players are in a classed just signed, and how "we recruited to our core values" and than a few days, he's kicking some of those same players that he just told us how great they were off the team, man hall arse with that manure!

Zookster I call BS, you post more like a 19-23 year old. never any substance just name calling of those that don't agree with you. im sure i'll be lumped in as one of those guys , sorry just calling it how i see it. what kind of an adult challenges someone on a message board to a face off. Are you actually going to punch him if he say something about the coaching staff to your face? you say real "Miami lol. Will that prove you are a " real fan".

Just an fyi, a real old school cane fan would never settle for mediocrity. It's nothing in our DNA to allow that.

Calvina, I think you are really dumb, but not this dumb:

Which word is holding you up---

The NCAA would not grant Dye clearance because they believe. If Dye were to play for Miami and the NCAA held to their belief we would forfeit games.

If Dye were to practice with Miami he couldn't go to another school and play this fall.

That's why it happened this way.

I tried to use small words. Admittedly you usually spell them wrong so may not recognize them.

What up nash if you out their, do me a favor, copy and paste this so our boy Hurriphin can see this, this mofo gone mess round and get struck by lightning, how you go from talking about God, to splashing, this guy is all over the place:

Let us all(real True Cane fans) welcome another "Independent Thinker" to the board! This man is not blinded by coach goldie's crouch like alot of these numb nutz in here!

Is Golden's "crouch" not bent over enough for you? Too low?

True Cane...stop with all the aliases you coward! You have no idea what real Canes stand for. You're an interloper who lies. Grow a set of balls you wimp and at least use just one screen name. If you feel threatened by my post then it proves you are spineless and not a true Cane.

Don't u worry Cane fans. Dillard may be gone but Goldy has moved Walter Tucker, a 2-star that had ZERO offers from ANY College whatsoever to play Football, from Linebacker be to be ur next depthless "thunder" runningback. So surely he'll be all-acc soon and a Top Draft pick in 2016 riiieet ?

Calvin,

You squat to pee and your constant stupidity on this blog is hilarious in its lack of substance. You have no clue what you are talking about. Hey, here's an idea, get on your tricycle and peddle your weak arse on over to Green Tree and get in Coach Golden's face and tell him the things you post on this site. We shall see how that works out for you...lmao@U!

Please cane fans, stop chasing me ...
