UM News: basketball player James Kelly to transfer

Just in from the University of Miami, per UM....

James Kelly to Transfer 

 CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami men’s basketball coach Jim Larrañaga announced Friday that James Kelly has been granted a release and plans to transfer.

 “I have made the difficult decision to transfer from the University of Miami," said Kelly. "I believe it is in the best interest of my family that I continue my education and basketball career closer to them. I would like to thank Coach L for the opportunity he gave me and all of his support during this year.”

 Kelly, a 6-7 forward from Ann Arbor, Mich., averaged 6.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 27 games played for the Hurricanes.

 "We support the decision James has made to continue his academic and athletic career closer to family," said Larrañaga. "We wish him nothing but the best."

Self Block.
Georgia.....Southern......

Two words.... George Southern. Or how about three words Four and Eight.

Hahahahaha

I mean seriously, they didn't complete a pass and still be those mighty gators haha. What a joke...

Is there even anything that you clUcks can point or allude to that the Canes did or have done in over the last decade that comes even close to an acomplishment instead of what another team has done, 5- 10 Win Seasons, 3 Conference Championships, 9 News Years Day Bowl Games and 2 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS over that same period of time of Ur Utter cane football nothingness ?

anything ?

bUeller ........... bUeller ............ bUeller ........... u there ?

lemme guess 2001, ur ONLY one in over 23 years since '91 riieet ?

And over that same time period, FLORIDA and FSU each have 3 ...

21-16

Miami has won 7 of the last 8 games. I do believe that is total domination! End of story!

You come here and grab at straws, pointing out anything that might cast the canes in a negative light, YET!, when the obvious, HEAD TO HEAD stats that matter get repeatedly thrown in your face, you complain about it...Well, it's done for obvious reason.

When you have the facts, you argue the facts,
When you have the law, you argue the law,
When you have neither, you argue character -

You sir, have neither, ergo, you argue character and drivel.

We just pound you literally and figuratively.
It's too easy.

Rieeet? Looser?

Right.

" instead of what another team has done, 5- 10 Win Seasons, 3 Conference Championships, 9 News Years Day Bowl Games and 2 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS over that same period of time"...

We See what you did there....what's so classic about this line of argument sir, is that the irony is too rich in this one, most recent statement of yours:

1. You complain that we focus on another team's recent poor performance, instead of our own deficiencies...

2. You selectively edit your preferred timeline to argue overall program merit.

Fails on Point 1.: You are on our blog, cherry picking stats and record, players and fan stereotypes, instead of focusing on your own team - Obsessively.

Moreover, you Fail on the followup Point2.: You invoke your best stats over your preferred timeline - the last decade, mixed with overall program history, as if it's superior....whereby even taking your best decade stats, the program arc simply doesn't compare well. Still.

Completely ignoring/glossing over our most recent and relevant head to head matchup, Our most recent season performance, inserting a snapshot of school history, then ignoring the overall history....

It's just not a winning formula for you....and you reapeatedly fail and/or are incapable of making that connection...

so we do it for you...Over...and OVER...and OVER...in new and exciting ways...and

YOU...keep coming back to OUR blog...." even close to an acomplishment instead of what another team has done" - YOUR OWN MOST RECENT WORDS...

It's just bemusing, piggy....

"u are u"...

Should I pronounce UF as OOF?
I think I shall


Georgia southern lost to wofford

Cherry picked dates and stats ? ok cane trash, tell me just what ur glorified football program has done since 1994 that the rest of the country already knows outside ur delusional 305 bubble... And try not to sound like 1970's-80's-90's and 2000's Notre Dame "Those Were The Days" fans u NADA 1990's-2000's and 2010's 1 'ship going on OVER 25 years u stUpido Meeeami flUnkies... Again ...

*** Is there even anything that you clUcks can point or allude to that the Canes did or have done in over the last decade that comes even close to an acomplishment instead of what another team has done in THE BEST CONFERENCE like, 5-10 Win Seasons, 3 Conference Championships, 9 News Years Day Bowl Games and 2 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS over that same period of time of Ur Utter cane football nothingness ? ***

anything ?

try starting with just winning ur Division ONE time before FSU is realigned with you in the same Division and u NEVER will see an acc 'ship game without a ticket or TV...


Bet u dUmb clUcks miss playing the the Big lEAST ?

UM loses out on a top target...

UM NOTE

UM today lost out on one of its top targets in the 2015 recruiting class when Coconut Creek Monarch’s Shawn-Burgess Becker announced on Twitter: “I’m committing to Alabama.”


Always the new cane thang "rule rather than exception." So if ur going to continue to go with the "rule" rather than the exception, future headlines out to read, "UM wins out with a low target unranked, 2 or barely 3 star commit that NO Top teams targeted." At least that way it seems like a positive note as Golden continues to load the Canes up with a majority of mediocre talent with a very few strong 3 and 4 star kids sprinkled in. ie- NO All-Americans and maybe 1 or 2 all-acc players in the lowly acc.

More than half of the Canes roster are now filled with these mediocre types that Top-25 teams don't want and are the majority of starters and all the 2nd. team depth. And u still axe over n over again the last decade why ur team has never won an acc and continues to lose games to average teams every year that they used to steamroll... That's why. But they'll all turn out to be Ed Reeds riiieeet? And u all will eat up Goldys pressers with how they are all getting BIGGER n STRONGER and BETTER !!!

But, u gots new uniforms ! The problem is what's in them clUcks.

14 in a row....UM takes nd in the ninth

Candy cane ....yet we beat the gators down with mediocre talent and mac coaching.....lmao do you think about what you say jl......i mean candy?

Alabama lands 3 from South Florida in Shawn Burgess-Becker, Calvin Ridley and Jovon Durante...

Former FIU head coach Mario Cristobal reached back into his old stomping grounds this weekend and picked up a few things he had left behind after heading off to join the coaching staff at Alabama.

Cristobal coaxed commitments out of two of the top prospects in both South Florida and in the country Saturday when Pompano Beach Monarch teammates Shawn Burgess-Becker and Calvin Ridley pledged commitments to the Crimson Tide. Miami Northwestern's Jovon Durante (6-0, 185), who committed to West Virginia last July, also pledging to the Tide

The highest ranked of the trio according to the Orlando Sentinel's 2015 Florida Top 100 is Burgess-Becker, the No. 11 prospect. Burgess-Becker is a 6-foot-1, 185-pound do-everything athete at Monarch who plays much bigger than what his size suggests. Burgess-Becker will likley end up playing safety in college.

.

How's that 305 FENCE doing cane clUcks... U starting to realize what these kids already know ? That Al "BE GONE" Golden would pull stakes and bolt Miami at the first decent offer he could drag his BFF along with him just like he would have if he was qualified and offered the Penn St. job. Also, the lame used car BS lines he's still pitching these homies they ain't buying... But u are still bUying riiieeet? And will continue to do so correctomUndo ? Si ?

Good luck with that giant expanding vacUUm HOLE pulling all the Top-Kids outta that 305 cesspool in ur imaginary fence. I would say it's big enough to drive a jUmbo-jet through, but let's go with, it's big enough to simulate the running lanes in between ur D-Ends...

Don't fret though, Goldy will panic and again start offering all those unranked n 2-star nobody projects with great grades, potential, upside, football "acumen" (as the penn st. genius likes to say), easily developed and moters... ie, slow average football players that don't make up Championship Winning Football Teams. But u miiiiiiigght be able to get by ur new rival, DUKE 2 outta every 4 years and enjoy some more December Bowl games hoping for that win to finally finish in the Top-25 in over a Decade... But they ain't winning no games against end of the season ranked teams, and u know this... 0-10 under Godsend Goldy and will continue to grow...

bUt u still believe next year is the year after a DOZEN years... or the next year .... or the ... or ....
.

btw - Mario Cristobal C.A.N.E. !!! Once a CANE ALWAYS a CANE !!! u'll be begging for his return soon enough after banishing him less than a year ago. Or are u smart enough ? Naaaaaawwwwwwww, u be calling for JJ to return, Dorsey to be OC and Ray Lewis to be DC. silly silly cane clUck.

GATORS ... 1 Anomaly year in 35 Seasons ... The AUBURN of 2014 !!!

dUh u ... 1 ring the last 25 years & 14 straight. 4 non winning Seasons.


u looose again ...

But, u gots new uniforms ! The problem is what's in them clUcks.

Who cares, who cares, and who cares. Two are Broward boys and they're committed, not signed. If it was Johnson or Irvin then it would look bad, but it's not, so who cares. IF Mark Walton went to Alabama then that's different. Fence rider diva kids from outside Dade can bounce. No love lost. Broward and Dade counties always had the silent resentment for each other so it's all good. Hopefully we see those boys down the road.

You love []_[]s!

BTW the Gator program is garbage. You wish you were []_[]Miami! You wish you had our tradition. A nation of fans that wish they were Hurricanes.

Lol...just saw lacrosse on espn....I thought that was a harry potter thing....lmao...and them gators are bragging? I guess if its all you have.

The University of Florida Gators are coming to town this Saturday for a football game against the University of Miami Hurricanes. So now is a good time to reflect on UF's long history of racism. For decades, the Gainesville school's overseers were instrumental in preventing African-Americans from getting a higher education.

Between 1945 and 1958, 85 black students applied for admission to UF, and all were rejected. One of those applicants, Virgil Hawkins, fought his rejection all the way to the Florida Supreme Court, where the chief justice, Stephen C. O'Connell, was a segregationist who would later become UF's president. Not surprisingly, the state's highest court refused to integrate. The school didn't admit its first black undergraduate students until 1962.

Willie Jackson Sr. and Leonard George, the first black student-athletes to play football at UF, were among only 343 black students. When the black student union staged a protest about the disparity, 66 students were arrested and O'Connell insisted on pressing charges. As a result, a third of the black students and several black professors left UF.

In the past decade, UF twice passed over an African-American, Charlie Strong, for the top coaching position. The defensive coordinator served as interim head coach for a bowl game in 2004 but was quickly cast aside for superstar coach Urban Meyer. Strong stayed with the Gators for five more years, molding a stout defense that helped the school win two national championships. He expected a fair opportunity for the head coach's job once Meyer hung up his whistle. But when UF officials begged Meyer to stay on for one more year after the 2009 season, Strong saw the writing on the wall.

So he accepted the head-coaching vacancy at the University of Louisville, where he's built a powerhouse. In a January 2009 interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Strong expressed his belief that race was part of the reason he wasn't offered the gig at Florida. He got the last laugh, though, when his Louisville Cardinals whomped the Gators in the Sugar Bowl this past January 2.

That's why I can't wait for kickoff. The Canes are gonna roast those racist Gators.

21-16.

u are so u ...

same canes Arty, a dozen years to late .

watch that 5-8/222 #22 RB in the same backfield with #21 n #6 .

seriously canes, when's the last time u won sheet ?

how about Parallel Parking back in the 80's around the Orange Bowl ?

Some idiot from the um ticket office had the nerve to email me and ask me if I'm locked in for fsu tickets.

Excuse me, but we not get spanked by a second rate Louisville team in December? You're worried about the defending champs when you can't even beat Louisville.

You worry about not only beating Louisville, but make sure there is a fist fight before that game starts. You make sure you make that day the beginning of the resurrection of this program. You make sure you lay down the type of humiliation that last decades to that program before you come and ask me if I'm ready with my tickets.

i have my season tickets fools. I'm locked in? Are you locked in? Are you locked intowhat miami really is? Because to us this is about redemption....revenge...and anyother rev that involves beating and hihumiliating people.

You don't need to ask some of us if we're ready...ok. You be ready. ..we'll be there. And if anybody from Louisville wants to throw down...good. I'm locked in!

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

maybe u ought to be more worried about me ...


we're gonna kick ur collective u Acumen'sasses again this year .
