« Miami Hurricanes release final depth chart of fall camp -- then close camp a day early | Main | UM season-ticket sales surge -- yes, Gators helped for sure. But winning is potion that will help most »

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.

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 --Old Zook

My fault grandpa, your age explains everything seeing that you're clearly senile. U must be in your 80's right? Big time Cane man who loves Al Golden but names himself after an old, horrible Gator coach. This old fart is sitting up on oxygen blogging, knowing damn well he can't physically leave the porch.

U, Al Golden and Marky Mark???? LMAO! U think you know them now. You're right though, I couldn't say anything to Al and Mark's faces because they both get right on the buses after all the road losses I've been to over the last 2 seasons. I'm not interested in them anyhow though, just the players who do make themselves available. Real Canes fans have loyalty to those closes to them, not the corporate elites. As soon as a player leaves the program fans like you go on an unnecessary damage control onslaught totally siding with the Mac staff--who are working a job and have not been Cane fans longer than any of Us--and begin to voluntarily berate the departing player as a quitter, weak, soft, and not adequate enough (all things that U don't know). Who's closer to being like yourself in every capacity? Al Golden & D'No? Or Danny Dillard and Dyron Dye? They grew up Cane fans like U and lived your dream to represent UM on the field, but you'd rather recognize with two dudes who grew up wanting to beat UM and just happened to take jobs here. U are a front-running sell-out and that philosophy of attacking your own (Cane fans and players) to protect the newest bosses in town is coonery, cowardly, and idiotic. Your idea of loyalty is completely dictated by money and power. U are a guard dog attacking those that U have access to, instead of those who make themselves inaccessible and that have the most ability and responsibility to change our football programs condition. Go shine some lawyer or banker's shoes lol.

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.

This guy is very articulate, keep breaking em down dawg, ROFL!

Sony Michel: " The Georgia facilities are better than UM's" The attendance at UM games was a factor in my decision"

Bullsh&t

Say it like it is, my petit young man

You were recruited by UGA by a service and your family was paid under the table

Furthermore-

You knew very well what Um facilities were like

Dont matter though

You were never a cane
And you ill never be
Have fun with them Georgia rednecks

We who follow the U know you aint all that- AmericanHeritage? Please
Did you play against the big boys in Broward and Miami-Dade? did you run up those crazy numbers playing against defenses like Central and Booker T?- NOT.

Walter Tucker is the real deal- He runs a 4.4 40. I see him as a good replacement for Dillard. Something happened withDillard- maybe he was bitter about the depth chart. Kids no wadays want everything now now now. Nobody wants to work hard and bide time. Everyone wants things handed to them.

really, that's it


ncaa on line 2-3-4-5-7n8 ... 1 too

So, according to the blog police trolls, we are not allowed to post the following:

Positive news about the Canes players.
Positive news about the Canes coaches.
Positive news about the Canes fans.
Negative news about our rivals.
Positive opinions about the Canes players.
Positive opinions about the Canes coaches.
Positive opinions about the Canes fans.
Negative opinions about our rivals.
Links to any of the above.

Because they have chosen to neither like, nor take a wait and see attitude on Golden, the NCAA sanctions, or any of the existing players. However, if a player leaves the team he is suddenly a superstar that should be lamented repeatedly in a wall of martyrs list.

HOWEVER, these same hypocrite trolls with multiple IDs and an obsessive hatred for the Canes say that all of these topics are acceptable:

Negative news about the Canes players.
Negative news about the Canes coaches.
Negative news about the Canes fans.
Positive news about our rivals.
Negative opinions about the Canes players.
Negative opinions about the Canes coaches.
Negative opinions about the Canes fans.
Positive opinions about our rivals.
Links to any of the above.

Okay, you have made your point, you have accomplished the goal of any good Gator troll, and ruined conversation on here. Congratulations. I know you gain no money in this endeavor, but perhaps your next Gator tailgate will let you get up and say a few words to your fans.

As for me and my house, I will continue to cheer for the Canes, no matter who the players and coaches are, the name on the front is more important than the name on the back. I will be critical where deserved, and give praise where deserved, and not let the tiny teeth of these ankle biting fleas prevent the truth from getting out there, both good and bad.

952, you are right about Dillard not panning out. If Duke left, I can understand the rage these guys are expressing. But this guy was FOURTH string, and was not improving.

It is like when Marve, Cannon, and Smith left, and the trolls gloated at the loss. Where are those players now?

Even the one successful Cane transfer, Arthur Brown, was not doing well at Miami, and was saved from the sanctions that the other Nevin-tainted players had by transferring. Between his off-the-field issues and the likely suspensions, he would not have had the performance here he had at KState. But that one case out of a list of players shows how rare it is for a player to be let go from here and play well elsewhere.

Ugh, reposted. Mistakes happen.

For a troll that claims he NEVER writes to antagonize, he sure has alot of exceptions to that "rule", "promise", etc, because in every post, he attacks anyone who writes positive about the Canes, like a good troll should, I guess.

When you come to a site, looking to attack anyone who cheers for a team, that makes you a troll.

so, who's the next u player that quits ?

^^^^^

Canes would need to lose another 10 to catch the slovenly disgusting Gatr Trash that has transferred, been kicked-off, decommitted or arrested in the past 2 years.

Other than that, who knows, flaming Pig. Did you get treat the boil on your sphincter?

I dunno. So far, the ones that have quite were two guys that were warming the bench even in blowout wins.

How many years you going back to get to your 4 going on 5 comment?

And name a school that doesn't lose two of three players every year. FSU? UF? Tennessee? UNC?

only difference is that the players that UFirstdegree murder lose are criminals or leave Trailerville holding their noses from the stench.

Where is the outrage from stroke-victim D, his alias Harriet Tubman, and Calvin about the Oklahoma-area baseball player shot to death by 3 black kids who "were bored," and decided to kill him while he was out on a jog?

Hmmmmmm.

5 titles.

It is actually even simpler. Here's atypical post from someone in the Sybil group

Everything is some version of that

For somebody to argue with d over whether it was staten island or long island reminds me of some idiot not so long ago trying argue with us on about whether the defense being ranked 116th not 117th. Once i saw that, i knew than when had some real clowns in here and fake UM fans. keep in mind they seemed to arguing the 116th ranking in self defense of oach OH-NO that's be in charge of the efense these last 2 years!

Posted by: Calvin | August 20, 2013 at 04:21 PM
//////////////////

There's nothing to argue about.. the defense was ranked 116th not 117th like you continue to post. It's miniscule but like I said many times, you are entitled to your opinion but not your own set of facts. Constantly giving wrong "facts" or telling a lie over and over doesn't make it true.

Actually, the defense was ranked 82nd in points given up, the dominant stat for defense. Lousy, but it was what it was. Nothing will change 2012. We'll see about 2013.

If they were just ripping Donofrio, that would be fine. He earned the criticism. But if someone says "Hey, based on the spring game and the workouts and the strength training and the returning players from injury and the extra year of experience, this defense will likely play better.", they are personally attacked as supporters of corporate regimes, or because they are not real Canes fans, or even that we are slurpers of kool aid or worse.

Tough to have a civil discussion with someone who shows up, and without even a "how do you do", decides that any Canes fans on here are X, or Y, or Z, and cannot be A, B, or C.

Canes fans are democrats, republicans, and independents.
Canes fans are judeo-christian, non-religious, and Hari Krishnas.
Canes fans are white, black, latin, and many other races and creeds.

But the same troll that has attempted to divide us by religion in his Occam persona, by politics in his Calvin persona, and by race in his THC persona, is the same guy that posts attacks of canes players for being Haitian, Jamaican, poor, rich, or the "wrong" color for his diatribe of the day.

When the Canes had an offensive line that was a mix of different political, racial, and economic backgrounds, and won a title, this guy must have been on full tilt in his trailer, and has not stopped since then.

I would wonder if he figures that creating SIX personalities based on former canespace posters makes him more believable than if he did only four. Nah, I don't wonder, because the proof is in his actions.

Yards allowed is the standard for defensive rankings, not points allowed. UM was ranked a paltry 116th out of 120. Embarrassing and unacceptable and I will personally contribute money for a "Fire Onofrio" banner to flown over a home game next year if our defense sucks again this year and Golden doesn't fire him.

"attempted to divide us by religion in his Occam persona."

I don't have to attempt anything. Religion is as divisive as it gets and does a great job of it without anyone's help. Each religion claims it has the answer and the right god to the exclusion of every other at the expense of eternal damnation.

That is some pretty divisive stuff. Keep your fake god and bronze-age beliefs.

Agreed, Jim.
Whether yards, points, time of possession allowed, penalties, or turnovers gained, the entire defense is in need of improvement. But the yards allowed are the factor that ties in to ALL the others.

They reduce the yards, the others will follow:
Fewer yards, more FGs instead of TDs = fewer points.
Fewer yards, more punts = less time of possession.
Fewer yards, fewer mistakes = less penalties.
Fewer yards, more desperate action by offenses = more turnovers.

So MC, we might disagree on which stat is dominant, but I think we can agree that BOTH major stats need to improve significantly in 2013 to save Donofrio's job.

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".
Posted by: Ron Zook | August 21, 2013 at 12:10 AM

See what I mean? Your are too simple. What does this add to the blog?

I do know that real cane fans never have and never will settle for mediocrity.

You come off as a Johnny come lately Cane that jumped on around the Ken Dorsey years and think that's where our dominance started. You watched the 30 for 30 documentary and thats's where you think you learned our history. I'll tell you this if "All about the U" was your history teacher on the Canes, you will never be a "True Cane."

It's will take a 15 hour mini series for them to put our real story on TV. And it would have to be rated T-MA, (mature audience only)

I like coach Golden, he's comes off as a likeable guy. But his w/l record doesn't match the stories I'm hearing. Would you agree? Or do you think he's done "a better then expected job" or " has overacheived with inferior talent"

Please tell me you guys don't really think it's only one person "posting under multiple aliases" that happens to not agree with you guys views? you mean to tell me only one person don't agree with you guys? Just one person? every one else agree but this one guy doesn't? LMAO

See how simple that was. No attacks

I think Golden has done a better than expected job given the circumstances. I mean no cane fan is happy with 7, 8 wins, even 9 wins. He-- Coker was fired after fired after d aftfter only one 7 win season, because UM fans' expectations are high- but you have t o be realistic. Shannon could not coach for his life, and he recruited HORRIBLY. And if you all think that fake a55 2008 recruiting class was really a #1 or #2 class (per ESPN), I have a lotto sell you in the everglades. The majority of kids Shannon recruited were lazy and entitled (Sean Spence and a couple of other excepted) or UNDER COACHED. HOWEVER> now that Golden is recruiting and setting himself with HIS TEAM (and now that Dyron Dye is gone)- all the attention and pressure will be on him to deliver.

Unlike th elikes of Calvin, many of us rational cane fans know that this team couldnot be rebuilt in 2 yrs especially with the NCAA penal ties still looming. I am 100000% indebted and thankful for Golden sticking with us. Any other coach, black white, local or outsider (as Calvin refers to Golden) would have bolted a the impending sanctions.

With this team the pressure is on. Anything less than a 10 win season will be unacceptable to me and many of us (Calvin I know that doesnt satisfy you but that to me is realistic). A NC is still not likely-

a) b/c the question of the D is still a big one
b) The schedule- not enough tough ranked teams this year. If UM played THIS team THIS year with LAST years schedule, that would be a chance to go far (KSU< ND< FSU).

Overall Golden and Donofrio have a lot to prove this year and we will see.

For now, I am 100% supportive. As a green and orange bleeder

True Cane, No I think we have shown above that we can disagree without the insults, and the claims as to who is a true Canes fan.

However, if you have been on this blog for a while, you know that there are multiple IDs that spew the same nonsense. Whether they post as ALL GATOR, or THE REAL DON SOLDY, or Curse of Art Kehoe, etc, they have shown a desire to divide and sow hate on these blogs through the use of stealing Canes fan IDs.

We don't agree with each other, we just wish to air our disagreements without the obsessive hatred of trolls, using the wedges of race, politics, religion, or national origin to undo the efforts of others attempting to discuss the sports side of this blog.

I am one of those that thinks 13-11 is no different than what we would have gotten under Shannon or Coker with these players, but that Golden is working well with the local coaches to improve the players that we have on this team, such that in two years we will be doing better than we would have under Coker or Shannon.

In the meantime, he does a far better job with the fans, the high school coaches, the press, and with recruits than his predecessors. He gets ripped by the trolls for his binder, his tie, his "corporate" face in the bright lights of this NCAA storm, but that is because they are fearful that the preparation (represented by the binder), the class and professionalism (represented by the tie), and the calm (represented by the tie), he has shown will soon get him from the 8-5 Jimmy Johnson level to the 12-0 Jimmy Johnson level.

Of course, I am not saying Al Golden is Jimmy, (before the trolls twist that comment out of context), just that he is closer in demeanor, planning, effort, and potential to Jimmy than Coker or Shannon ever were.

"I don't have to attempt anything."
Ture, we agree on that, you don't HAVE TO. But you CHOOSE to anyway.

"Religion is as divisive as it gets and does a great job of it without anyone's help."
Which is why I am not on a religion discussion board right now. And neither are you, troll.

"Each religion claims it has the answer and the right god to the exclusion of every other at the expense of eternal damnation."
Really? I never knew that, so THAT explains why our defense was porous last year! Oh wait, it doesn't have anythig at ALL to do with that.

"That is some pretty divisive stuff. Keep your fake god and bronze-age beliefs."
I do keep them, which was my point, troll.

Posted by: Occam is trolling | August 21, 2013 at 10:18 AM

See, True Cane, there is an obsessed troll that depending on the topic will take on his religion persona, his politics persona, his race persona, etc. in an effort to raise the ire of folks on here, to the point where even those that agree about the Canes will end up fighting with each other on other topics. Do I claim that they are ALL the same person? No. But I do claim and discussions with the IT group at the herald confirm that there are a relative few that change and steal other IDs on a whim to create confusion and anger on here, despite their claims that they NEVER post to antagonize.

Five titles:
I totally agree with your post.
True Cane you also..

This is a football blog, but if you have been around for a while, it really gripes me to see when posters with their own agenda or vendetta turn everything re our 'Canes into a Hate contest.

Some people no matter what Coach G does will demean and villify Coachesand players within our program.

Good press, and national exposure, excellent recruiting, dress as a winner not slouch around in sweats_EVIDENCE.
Hang in when times get tough through someone else's ineptitude. EVIDENCE
Have a plan, work the process, and make young men believe in themselves, their team mates, and their school, and lastly honor the legacy of a Class institution that placed more players in the NFL than any other College team. EVIDENCE
The above is too much for many to handle, but it describes Coach Golden exactly. FACT
The 'U' is lucky to have a Coach like this. No comparisons needed............ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.
It's a 'Cane 'thang. You just wouldn't understand!!!
Go 'Canes

There's nothing to argue about.. the defense was ranked 116th not 117th like you continue to post. It's miniscule but like I said many times, you are entitled to your opinion but not your own set of facts. Constantly giving wrong "facts" or telling a lie over and over doesn't make it true.

Posted by: Jim |


Jim you miss the point. It is stupid to even point that out since it doesn't make any difference. If it is really #116 and not #117 do you feel any better? Of course not, the point is it sucks either way. It is unacceptable and needs to improve.
I don't see how it will improve that much if the only difference form last year is that the players are one year older, stronger, bigger and such. All players, in all teams are the same, or do you think UM is the only school where players work out and have a trainer and facilities to help them get stronger.
You lost a bunch of players from that pathetic unit and are counting on a few freshmen to fill the void and do better.
As far as letting a 2 year player go to be replaced by a freshman. How in the world are we to build depth this way? Are we to stay for ever young and inexperienced?
Ron Zook, if you are such a great Cane fan why is your ID a former Gator coach? You keep calling others gator trolls when it is you who references a gator in his name. What gives? And it is asinine to say that Golden is the best coach in America, are you and delUsionalcane the same person. Define "best". 7 - 6 and 6 - 6 is mediocre in my book.
We need to develop the young players to build depth and continuity. A freshman star like Duke does not come every year, most freshmen need time to grow and develop.

Who is "we"? I keep reading this. I mean are U posting under different aliases or a part of a blogging group?

To be a bigot, you sure are writing bloviations of "change" akin to the one only Barack Hussein Obama. trying to rall the good ole boy group using Obama's style is an oxymoron dude. You sound desperate and must think this blogging is a popularity contest?? Your constituents don't believe U...U need more people.

You've had the floor all morning attempting to start all over because U jumped in to a fight and got dropped the last couple of days. I'll give U until 1pm to begin to discuss Canes football without mentioning your supposed group and its supposed victimhood at the hands of supposed "trolls." If its time to move on, then practice what U preach and lead by example (not talk, words and appearance--ala Massa Golden).

So a tie means that a person is classy, professional and calm? I mean really, U are so caught up on appearances (admittedly) and easily convinced. U implore Us fans to focus on his binder rather than his record and that FACT that our team looked unprepared & inconsistent in every game last season including our wins?

I'm not going to explain the sequence of events that occurs everyday on the blog and its impact on the direction of our discussion--leading to insults and back and forth nonsense. But I'll tell you that I've never made negative posts that wasn't a response to a personal and negative post directed at me. Feel free to look that up. If I see a quote from Golden or D/No above and its BS in my opinion, then I'm gonna express my belief. The issue begins when your crew doesn't like the opinion. I don't go at fans, I go at the administration. I have enough self-awareness to understand that my frustration begin and end with those in charge, not those who pay, $upport and bleed orange and green.

U can post all the positive stuff u want as long as its not prefaced or concluded with a sly personal shot. I've never attacked anyone for doing so, who hasn't attacked me first. Anyone can type words on a keyboard, that doesn't make the words true. People can read back if they choose, the truth is documented.

Miramarcane... have you been reading the blog for the last 12 months? The same poster (cAlvin) who kept saying 117th has passed off his speculation and opinions as "facts" and made up quotes to try to validate his erroneous "facts". If I'm giving my opinion, I'll say it's my opinion. If I'm giving a fact, I'll include the link to validate it if it's questioned. If I'm wrong or misspoke, I'll admit it and move on... I don't continue to post the same erroneous stuff over and over and call people an idiot or an imbecile for calling me out a blatant lie ala cAlvin.

You're wearing the victim and oppressor (antagonist) hat at the same time. Superiority and inferiority complexes at the same damn time. Fall back and move on.

I agree with Ron Zook, Al Golden is the best coach in the World.
I Agree with uGoCane, the U is lucky to have such an outstanding coach.
To all the Haters, The Great Golden can do no wrong, and he has a record to prove it.
And a great tie too!

Ron Zook and Five Titles are completely out of touch. Their hyperbole and exaggerations only serve to undermine the Canes as they make ridiculous comment after ridiculous comment. Zook is especially ignorant. He is making a mockery of UM and doesn't even know it. Dude is sniffing 70 years old and continues to babble. Very suspect.

To say that we are lucky and eternally indebted to Al Golden for staying with UM after the Shapiro scandal began is to say that Al Golden is and was bigger (superior to) this coaching job. Lets get this straight: Al Golden was/is and never will be bigger than this UM coaching job. I'm not speaking personally, but my opinion is based according to his deficient abilities and prowess as a head coach, especially schematically. As Cal said, he stayed because this is an ideal job destination wise and the NCAA investigation wasn't a deterrent but actually provided a silver lining to his coaching tenure contractually and expectation-wise on a individual level. Didn't he and his agent freak that situation into a raise and contract extension after one season (thats a real question--I don't remember)? They actually saw that situation in a different light than we did as fans and obviously used it to sure up his job security. Not to mention that he has admitted numerous times to not being involved at all with the investigation--so what exactly has he had to deal with and steer Us from when he isn't a part of it in the least? Aside from the annual negative recruiting from our rival schools--why is he being considered to be Moses or Noah? If most of our recruits would be Canes if Mickey Mouse was the coach (as some have said when attempting to not give RS any credit for recruiting)--then can't the same be said for the kids Golden has gotten commits from during the investigation and looming sanction. I person could say the same thing--"awww man they were coming anyway." I'll choose not to do that and give Golden props for his recruiting acumen.

Al Golden is very loyal, but U can't discounted that he made us pay for his loyalty. He stayed because the investigation provided contractual leverage, job security, and our fan expectations dropped--evidenced by the prevailing sentiments by fans that he has no accountability yet, its the players fault, its other fans fault, and his performance as a coach can't be questioned because we are just lucky he stayed. U guys have created a monster with this blind allegiance, especially in D'No--who made negative and condescending comments about canes fans in his first season here. If Al Golden was bigger than this job (ability-wise) he would have left, so what are U indebted to?

Who wouldn't stay at a job where U get a raise the first year and won't get a performance appraisal (from your bosses or consumers) for at least two years?

Well, that was a fun morning.

Nothing but infighting and hatred amongst cane fans here. One thing for certain is that all the Golden dreamers launch the attacks. Criticize Golden and you get attacked.

Here's the funny thing about danny dillard not being here, i said when they first recruited him and saw his footage i said, "i hope they're bringing him in to play linebacker cause no way he's a runningback". I said jalen grimble didn't belong here as well, i can tell by the way coach goldie recruited that 1st year alot of those guys didn't belong here, like that linebacker kinard that couldn't qualify. You have to keep in mind people that coach goldie's and his boy clown 117th's idea of what a good athlete is, is somebody like Ahmad brooks, or chris canty, those type, outside of those type of athletes, they don't have a clue.

They to caught up worrying about weight, and who they got on their arm and what not and height and just want to be able to say they got a big team or were more physical than the other team even though they lost the game.

HarrietTubman & jim gallo said it best, coach goldie has introduced a plan that he doesn't have the capability to execute. At 13 & 11, that's seems real accurate. This year, since this is the most so called "in-shape" team, than that means it's all on coaching & execution if what coach goldie & his boy oach OH-NO actually have a natioanl championship scheme.

When shannon was the headcoach, when the defense had bad games, people consistently blamed shannon not the d-co. How come now, people don't blame coach goldie a former d-co himself.

I would bet any amount of money that any of the shannon coached Miami teams would beat any team thus far coach goldie has coached at UM.

It's amazing to me ALL of the people on the Miami site posting and their not CANE fans. They are trolling because two reasons, they are unemployed and have nothing better OR they are fans of most teams in the country that at some point over the last 25 years, the CANES beat their ASS and they can't get over it. FLA, FSU, NEB, OU, VT, ND, yea, there are many more..Go back to your teams blog and comment on how boring and awful your team actually is.


Something happened withDillard- maybe he was bitter about the depth chart. Kids no wadays want everything now now now. Nobody wants to work hard and bide time. Everyone wants things handed to them.

**************

This Hurricane zealot has an absolute faulty assumption regarding the departed Daniel. Nothing more and nothing less!

For instance, former Miami RB Daniel was a 3-Star recruit, and I don't think any 3-Star incoming freshmen expects to have, ' everything handed to him. ' As the latter Miami zealot mentioned.

Now, I'd think those 5-Star recruits would be inclined to have ' everything handed to them. ' As Cane partisan opined.

Miramarcane I understand your thinking but just because Dillon was inthe system for a year already does not make him any better if its just not there . If the coaches don't think he will make the field because he did not pick up the offense or was not buying in then I think they are on the inside and know the entire situation , I don't think a man who is counting on winning to feed his family and boost his career is going to cut someone thats important to the program just "because" . Thier are things that we don't know so we really can't make an intelligent decision about them . Go Canes


One thing for certain is that all the Golden dreamers launch the attacks. Criticize Golden and you get attacked.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At least in the M-H Hurricane forum one doesn't have his opinion deleted. Albeit the vast majority, but not all, of the Miami fans in this particular forum would love to see Cane distractors excommunicated. Huh

Because in the Canespace and eoth the Miami zealots don't take to kindly, to sound, objective criticism of their beloved defensive coordinator.

And yes, I was excommunicated from Canespace for defending my reasonable, objective opinions!

Yea D, thats just an example of hating your own demographic (self-hate). He'd rather believe and post all that negative stuff about Dillard, than to just wish him well and move on. None of that was reported about Dillard so why would a Canes fan create such a scathing scenario to justify or explain why a kid was dismissed (^^the new article now says he was "dismissed") from the team? Why would a fan do that?

His name should be:

Money>appearances>the truth

Former Miami RB Daniel was in the system for TWO SEASONS!

Not the lone year some Hurricane dude mentioned earlier!

But Goldie doesn't ' dismiss ' his players. They naturally chose to leave for the good of the Miami program and what not.

D - Excommunicated from Canespace? I feel for you, my brother. I know first hand the suffering that comes from expressing your beliefs. Be strong, and remember when a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right on, brother!

At least there's ESPN and CBSSPORTS and naturally, the M-H Miami football blog for me to bloviate on Hurricane matters, and what not. Huh.
