Vinny Testaverde will be honorary captain Saturday for Canes vs. Wake Forest

HERE'S THE RELEASE FORWARDED FROM UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI, HOT OFF THE PRESS:

Testaverde will be 10th Miami Hurricane inducted into College Football HOF

IRVING, Texas – Miami Hurricanes great and 1986 Heisman Trophy winning QB Vinny Testaverde will be honored during Saturday’s game with a National Football Foundation Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute. Testaverde will also be the honorary captain for the Miami Hurricanes game vs. Wake Forest. Kickoff is set for noon ET on ESPNU.

 

 The NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute program is a hallowed tradition that began with the inaugural class in 1951, and to this day the salutes remain the first of numerous activities in each inductee’s Hall of Fame experience. During the NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salutes, each inductee returns to his alma mater to accept a Hall of Fame plaque that will remain on permanent display at the institution. The events take place on the field during a home game, and many inductees cite the experience as the ultimate capstone to their careers, providing them one more chance to take the field and hear the crowd roar their name.

 One of the greatest quarterbacks in school history, Testaverde was Miami’s first Heisman Trophy winner in 1986, while also winning the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, Maxwell Award and Davey O’Brien Trophy. He led the Hurricanes to three bowl berths, including the 1987 Fiesta Bowl, which determined the national champion. Testaverde, who was a redshirt on Miami’s 1983 national championship team, went 23-3 as a starter playing for legendary coaches Howard Schnellenberger and Hall of Famer Jimmy Johnson.

 Tampa Bay selected Testaverde as the No. 1 overall selection in the 1987 NFL Draft, and his pro career spanned 21 seasons with seven different teams. The 1998 All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowl selection finished his NFL career seventh all-time in passing yards (46,233) and eighth in touchdowns (275).

 The Elmont, N.Y., native currently resides in Florida where he plays an active role with the Children’s Cancer Center of Tampa. Testaverde remains among only four Hurricanes to have their jerseys retired at Miami.

 Testaverde will become seventh Miami Hurricane player and 10th overall to be enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame – Bennie Blades (2006), Don Bosseler (1990), Andy Gustafson (1985), Jack Harding (1980), Ted Hendricks (1987), Jimmy Johnson (2012), Russell Maryland (2011), Gino Torretta (2009) and Arnold Tucker (2008)

 

The 2013 College Football Hall of Fame FBS Class will be inducted Dec. 10, 2013, at the 56th NFF Annual Awards Dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. They will be honored guests Jan. 2, 2014, at the National Hall of Fame Salute in New Orleans at the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

 The Hurricanes will look for their first 7-0 start since the 2003 season when they host Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2 ACC) on Saturday. Fewer than 5,600 tickets remain for Miami’s Oct. 26 home game vs. Wake Forest, which is also UM Employee Day.  To purchase tickets, fans can order online at www.canestix.com, visit the UM Ticket Office at BankUnited Center (M-F, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.) or call 1-800-GO-CANES.

LOL. Some morons on here can not stand the truth about moron d'o and his moron NO defense sets.

Hey morons, the Canes have not beaten any good teams this year. They might as well have played against local high school teams to get to 7-0 and even then, dumb'o did his level best to help UNC win by giving them 75 yards in 16 seconds at the end of the game.

Or did you flakes miss that last 16 seconds because you were doing chest bumps or hiding your eyes?

Don't worry, at the no life stadium, some moron will sound a siren to let you morons know the next play is important.

Awww, poor COWARD sicko got exposed for who he is, and now he is back to his curse piggy persona.

Hey obsessed sicko, your jokes about murder victims are not appreciated, your changing IDs are not appreciated, and your lies on here are not appreciated.

One thing though loser, you got the chance to WATCH the Canes last 16 seconds against UNC, (on your knees, praying to your grand dragon for a miracle) because we were on national TV. NOBODY saw your beatdown by the "tigers" because you were on some dialup computer line, as your season, ranking, and credibilty all were wiped out in front of a national TV crowd of ZERO.

Sun Life stadium is a lot better stadium than that TRAILER TRASH STADIUM your failing team plays in. Is it true your fans are too stupid and too drunk to even know if their team is winning or losing in that taxpayer moneypit sinkhole?

6-0, fool.

We WIN our road games, you are a pitiful 1-3 on the road. But keep bragging about those three home wins against Toledo, Tennessee, and Arkansas. Yawn.

NCAA is gone, gatrs are gone, time for you to be gone, too, you sick namechanging diseased flawed troll.

You have the guts to show up at a REAL stadium for a REAL ranked team's game this Saturday? I will give you my ticket if you can come up and shake my hand, sicko.

Baseball, Miami outplayed UF.
Basketball, Miami outplayed UF.
Football, Miami outplayed UF.
And in Eye on the U, Miami fans outplayed the sicko UF troll, and now you are just played out.

Don't worry, at the no life stadium, some moron will sound a siren to let you morons know the next play is important.

Don't worry, at benny hill stadium, some moron will chant about how many quarters he earned last week to let you morons know the rest of your pathetic season and life is unimportant.

Cmon, COWARD, take the challenge, you sick freak troll. You talked up how you have 7% body fat, and work out with the players, and all that, show yourself.

Or are you gonna go the Aaron Hernandez route and have your buddies hold a guy while you use a gun because you have no concept of honor?

21-16, I know I have asked you to leave that sicko Gatoralum and his minions alone on Gator Clause, but at least you discuss sports with them, while this guy continually goes on the attack of the coaches, players, fans, and even their former players that are killed by losers like him.

Shows the difference between this disgusting namechanging troll and your retaliation.

Please, even when you do post over there, don't ever sink to his disgusting level, it is what he is hoping we do, so that he can justify his continued disgusting comments on here.

Thanks for being classier than he will ever be, 21-16.

In his disgusting world view, joking about the death of a baby is fine as along as that baby is Cuban.

In his disgusting world view, joking about the death of a player is fine as along as that player is a Cane.

In his disgusting world view, joking about the lynching of a coach is fine as along as that coach is a Cane.

That is why I am glad you have never stooped to that level.

Just showing the score of 21-16 is enough of an insult for their years of overconfidence and personal attacks on all the Canes blogs.

Canes point spread is still over 21 points, so Sunny Dee, your 41-20 pick is looking like what Vegas is expecting, too.

Canefan7, the name changing, real fake Jim Gallo maggot.

Yeah, I need the siren to let me know what is going on. I also need a rules book, a play sheet and a cheer book.

Bitter old crusty douche. Canes are on the rise with or without you. Stay at home and yell at the TV. Ironic that what will make you most miserable is a successful season for the Canes.

While I do not expect them to beat FSU, they do not have to in order to have a successful season. Even 10-2 with a major bowl is a massive upgrade from the past 8 years.

YOu, however, can only complain. You should care more about your distended prostate and the crust around your arse.

Five Titles, D, and other SERIOUS bloogers here....

You guys are letting these TROLLS get to you WAY TOO MUCH...

THERE IS ONLY ONE PURPOSE THEY ARE HERE: TO F**K WITH YOU...

SO SHOWING THEM HOW MAD YOU ARE AT THEM IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH...

DON'T SATISFY THEM...

THERE ARE ON 2 WAYS TO HANDLE THEM:

1) IGNORE their posts

2) MAKE FUN OF THEM...

No Worries WCC.

I know that is their reason for coming here. And I am not angry, just vigilant.

Is the soldier on the fire line in Guantanamo or on the Korean border mad at the Commie on the other side? No, just aware that they will attack if you let your guard down.

Is the FBI agent hunting down Klansmen in Gainesville angry at the Grand Dragon? No, they are just aware that the gatr dragon, I mean grand dragon would gladly have him killed if he could get away with it.

There are those that I ignore, and there is one in particular that I do not, because I have seen what he will do to a blog if given free rein. He will steal IDs, start fights among Canes fans, joke about killing players, coaches, and fans, and then get people banned if they dare to respond the same way. So, I take that on so that Sunny Dee, UGoCane, MARK, Canesjunkie, and the others like yourself can discuss sports in peace.

I make fun of him, like the juggalo picture, and I trap him in his lies, just by going back to his own comments from weeks earlier, but I am not mad at him. Are you mad at the roach you squash in the garage? No, but you don't let it get away with ruining everything in your home, either.

Feel free to talk about Wake, and I will too, but every now and then, when he comes around to call our black players lawn jockeys, or posts some claim that he is working with the FBI to find out the drug angle on Sean Taylor's death, or one of his other sick repeated lies, I will stop it before it gets to the point that it did in the Sun Sentinel and then Palm Beach Post. I ignored him there, and he stole my ID and started fights with people at 1 in the morning, so that I had to spend the next day explaining which posts were mine and which were not. If he would just leave, then there would be no problem, but he is here daily, long after the gatrs, the NCAA, and Nevin Shapiro have been sent packing.

WELL, SURRRRLY THEY CAN HAVE A GOOD SEASON IF THEY CAN NOT PLAY OR BEAT ANY TEAM WITH A WINNING RECORD.

I ONLY COMPLAIN ABOUT GOLDIE AND D'O NOT KNOWING FOOTBALL DEFENSE AND THEIR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GETTING PLAYERS INTO GREAT CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITION BOTH OF WHICH WOULD ALLOW THEM TO GO 12-0 IF THEY WERE NOT SO STUPID.

ALL OF THAT HAS BEEN CURED WITH YOUR WONDERFUL USE OF YOUR TONGUE.
