Exactly, thank you for proving my point. Like I said, no one is perfect. You can point fingers at us too. Don't be surprised when FSU fans point to Miami's shady history. As for the intelligence of student athletes, lets just say that the majority of players at every school would't be there without football talent.
Jones' case may have been thrown out, but the others haven't. Haith is being hit with everything the NCAA can possibly hit him with. Call Shapiro a liar if you want, but the found enough evidence to hit Haith with the worst punishments then can. Clearly hevwasnt lying. Jones' benefited from a lack of evidence, not innocence.
What does "this" prove? Miami is screwed.
Oh, my friend, that's where you're wrong. If you truly think that what went down in Miami is just "something negative that took place in the past" and that it's not going to have an impact on your "great leader's . . . vision for the future" you're more of a Cane fan than I thought. Ya'll are not known for your mental acuity.

"They are pretty much throwing everything at him," the source said of Hurtt. "They have him on essentially everything that was brought to the attention of the NCAA, some of which has been publicly known because of (Shapiro) but there are some other things that did not involve Shapiro that they're charging him with."
The source added that after the NCAA began investigating Shapiro's claims, student-athletes detailed other violations allegedly committed by Hurtt and Aubrey Hill, another former UM assistant who had resigned from Florida weeks before the start of the 2012 season. The coaches are expected to be cited for "unethical conduct," better known in NCAA circles as a violation of Bylaw 10.1, said the source. Among the charges the NCAA will allege against the former UM football assistants are impermissible transportation, impermissible lodging as well as impermissible benefits, the source said.
Lol funny guy. Al golden is still here bringing in top talent that seems positive for one. The sanctions coming down have been prepared for ahead of time. The _ is on its way up. Tell yourself whatever u need to, just be ready when the HURRICANES HITS!!
Haaaaa I really cant wait to play yall in the Fall, GatorNation gunna be invading Miami
Might be sold out?

Lol. We'll see come gameday!
Haha. Good one. Pat urself on the back.
It's FSU fans like you that make the rest look bad. Questioning a man's character without even knowing him shows just how much intelligence you have. Golden is a self made man built Temple from nothing. There are 10 guys in the NFL from Temple......that's right Temple. Who recruited them and even made a first rounder out of Wilkerson that's right Al Golden. He did not have to ride the coat tails of Saban to make a name for himself or even get a legend like Bowden fired. Before you go and questioning Al take a good look at Jimbo.
You have a board where people will listen to this crap you spew. Go there and brag about walk on studs, not getting hammered by ncaa, and all the other fantasy topics y'all talk about to avoid coming to term with how bad it really is. There is a magical place where all this nonsense is accepted and cheered. It's called your home board. Go there and play with all the other hurrishame fans, they take you seriously there. Not here though, although we do like to laugh at y'all, and you give us plenty of ammo. I think its time you head back and make 5 or 6 threads about us on your board.
Its healthy banter between rivals. I see a struck a cord. I was not profane or disrespectful whatsoever. I guess when there is nothing else to be said anger starts to show. I will let you be as i see you have been disturbed in some manner. Noles are always welcome to come over and give insightful comments. Its people like you that make it the ugly thing it becomes. Enjoy living in your fairytale world where if someone says something that you do not agree with you just try and get rid of them. Being open minded makes you grow as a person. With a name like coachTnole I thought maybe you were a little more mature. You know what they say about assuming........
Rich very rich, act like you have done nothing wrong. three post above you are making snide remarks about an FSU posters intelligence. Then you proceed to bash our coach, and demean his accomplishments. Banter is fine and im all for it. But since y'all have nothing really to talk about on your board, so you come over here and troll.
Smart strategy by Miami fans to float rumor of Coley becoming Miami OC. Create doubt in the mind of SoFla recruits otherwise headed to FSU.
Also yes i am a coach, i coach freshman football and varsity baseball. I pay for this site so i can talk how i want. The way i converse with posters and how i talk with my players is very different. That being said i just tell it how it is on here. Please find a post where i have cussed on this site. I will wait
I will leave after this comment. Everyone must think before they speak if you are misinformed and get set straightened out well then so be it. Nothing I said about Jimbo was incorrect. He was made popular for the great coordinator he was under Saban then went to FSU waited around which is common knowledge for Bowden to step down except that's not how it went down. If you are telling me that Jimbo had no say as to get Bowden out then I will take you for your word but it's hard to believe he didn't. As a head coach he has severely underachieved just like Randy Shannon did and so he will share the same fate. In order to demean someone they have to accomplish something. Jimbo has not accomplished anything except win ACC Championships while the conference has been down. Enough said. Good day sir.
Glad your leaving after this one, so much fail here. We just won 12 games, the ACC, and the orange bowl. Also beat you guys again. Severely underachieved is not how i would put it at all. Also Jimbo has done more than shannon ever thought of. Those two are not comparable. Last Jimbo was just the next guy in line. He did not do anything to force Bobby out the door. What happened is exactly what needed to happen.
How many BCS bowls, conference championships, division championships or top ten 10 finishes did Shannon have? For that matter has Golden beaten a ranked team in his entire career?
I am not stating that FSU is all learning disabled. But that is what that headline leaves you to believe. This was rogue coaches, rogue booster amd the NCAA will penalize those involved. However, you guys saying that we are getting death penalty and gang raped have to keep wishing because it wont happen. This investigation gave us time to penalize ourselves, you know what, the NCAA is going to accept it. Sure they may add a schollie or two but we played at 80 last year, probably 80 this year so we already reduced scholarships. Probation is most likely, especially cause the only thing dude has is text messagea and a bunch of receipts and pics.
Envy the past, Fear the future
We call that evidence my man.
The clown is clueless. Miami will get more than a scholarship or two. You "rouge" boosters and coaches are what we call "lack of institutional control. Get your fork ready.
Clueless...I doubt. Dude we sat out an unprecedented number of bowl games(2) plus the ACCCG. We already are reducing scholarships. We know their was guilty parties, but we have prepared for that because the NCAA is using a UF lawyer who doesnt know what she is doing so they took 23 months to investigate. Then she was fired for extorting previous players no longer under jurisdiction. Boosters texting players is not a violation. Boosters talking to players, still not a violation. Boosters hosting players for reasonable dinners, not a violation. He has no proof of anything major. They only have what Golden is telling his players and coaches to tell, which is the truth. Haith, Hill and Hurtt are all getting much worse than the school. Once sanctions talk is out of the way, Golden will lock down any Florida recruit it wants cause that is how he rolls. Top 10 class with investigation. Another top 20 class with less than 20 players once we land Collins, Thomas, Kirkland, Bostwick and Grace. Or did you still think you were getting them?
He doesnt have what the evidence says....and the texts were only to the 08-09 recruits who the NCAA already determined took 1500$ between 6 kids that have already repaid. The pics werent timestamped. No proof that he bought Wilfork and his wife an escalade. No proof of abortion(ridiculous accusation) for a stripper(cause I heard they only sleep with one dude). Prostitutes dont give receipts, so that crap dont stick. The evidence is shaky at best. Our cooperation into this matter is all the NCAA really has as proof. We are being transparent to make their job easy.
Not that I need to inform you of this, but Al Golden is 40-45 as a head coach (13-11 at Miami). Jimbo is 31-10 as a HC, with a combined 5-1 record vs um and uf and a 3-0 bowl record (wins over USCe, ND and NIU). This year he won 12 games, an ACC Championship and a BCS bowl championship (at your stadium, no less). We beat (2) top 15 schools in 2012. Golden has never beaten a top 15 team as a HC. To date, Jimbo has accomplished more as a head coach. As much as you like AG, this subject isn't up for debate.
