I agree with you 100% rboud. Plus the ACC officials have pretty much been giving us the shaft since we got into this conference. Teams frequently hold our defensive players at will knowing they'll get away with it. Virginia Tech is probably the biggest benefactor of this usually. This year after the ncaa announced the penalties/sanctions against us. Swofford, thinking they(ncaa) were too lenient on us doled out his own penalties/sanctions by telling his officials to "job" us. What a ba&%$@#*(rhymes with mastered)

If my fading memory serves me---I think "The Bus was victim of two bogus calls about crossing the goal line.. Posted by: dennis preslar I believe you're right D. One of em for sure. And we had a KO return for a TD by Duke that was nullified by a BS call. Another long return was brought back because of a namby-pamby call. ACC Refs. Most of em still hate us. I hope we get our due later on today @ 3:30 PM. Go Canes. COH Rules!

Yes, that #2, Dominique Easley for the Gator was a LOAD. One of the announcers said he went 285 pounds. Man! He moved like a 210 lb. safety. Hope the Dolphins have a new GM before he graduates. I want him on our team. GO CANES!!

I wish Hartline would take less money to remain a Dolphin so we can sign a guy like Wallace. Hartline is more than just a possession receiver. On some of the occasions he was open deep the ball was either under or overthrown or thrown out of bounds or to the wrong shoulder. He was injured for most of training camp and didn't have the chance to work a full offseason with T-hill. Id like to see what he'd do opposite a Wallace type. One thing. We DO have a lot of holes to fill. Hope some get filled anyway. It'd be a start.

As for Bertsot and his Hartline apologist comment. You must be one of those frontrunning phonies that jumped on the Dolphins bandwagon when Marino was hot. Hartline is a good receiver that would be great if he was on a team with a dynamic offense with a QB like Brady or Rivers, Brees, Rogers or Payton Manning. He's better than he was but his numbers will likely get better as we get more talent. Don't panic
Dan Diedorf is the most unprofessional color commentator I can think of. You might ask why he hates us so much. The way I see it, he and Conrad "Leg-biter" Dobler were OL on a pathetic St Louis Cardinals team that the Dolphins once beat 52 - 14 or something like that. When he was in his heyday the Dolphins were great. That' the way I see it. So now he has a lifetime grudge and a bully pulpit to channel his hatred
I agree with that study about football off season & depression. It's not clinical depression but it definitely leaves a void that's tough to fill. Love hoops and I like baseball(well Canes and Yankee baseball anyway) but there is nothing like Canes fb. It's been real tough these last 10 or so years having to deal with poor coaching and the manifestations there of but I think we are starting to see a change for the better taking place. GO CANES!

If Boise State doesn't rate a stronger opponent than Miami then something is wrong with our Bowl system. Oh thats right there is. Never mind. I think Boise would feel insulted if they find themselves matched up with a team with 5 losses like Miami.

It would be nice if one of our great players stayed and played his senior season. We really need Streeter to stay for the teams sake. Sure he'll make a lot of money in the league but with the new CBA he wont make HUGE money. Our new QB whoever that may be will need him. STAY!!!

There would be a danger in riding a motorcycle with a fly swatter affixed to the helmet like that. Other motorists upon seeing that might start laughing so hard they could potentially crash into the cyclist or possibly another vehicle or pedestrian. No self respecting cyclist or biker would use a rube goldberg like contraption like that. Solution to bugs in teeth? Keep mouth closed or wear a full face helmet or one like shes got with a plexi-glass shield. But the fly swatter IS cute and she makes it so ʘ_ʘ

Manny Navarro is a good sports columnist. I don't know how he really feels about RS but I firmly believe if he came out and wrote a scathing anti-Shannon column about why Shannon needs to be fired, the editor in chief would call him into his office and give him hell and send him back to his office(if he has one) But Manny ultimately knows who puts montequellia on his pan.

I'd be willing to bet that most of the Randy Shannon apologists who strive to minimalize Randy Shannons defects and shortcomings and repeatedly point out his strong points are the same people who worshipped Larry Coker. Many of them to this day think Coker could have turned this team around if given the chance. Shannon plays the blame game. Only once has he come out and said "This loss is on me. My fault." What about the fiasco at the end of the Emerald Bowl that was supposed to be a two minute drill? This team was NOT PREPARED for a 2 minute drill? Then I watched as Shannon shifted the blame on Nix and gave excuses about our inexperience at QB. Shannon! Even HS QB's know 2 minute drills. RS should have overseen and made SURE Nix had his charges executing this fundamental but monumentally important aspect of the game. That was when I knew..... Due to my health I can no longer attend games but I do watch on TV and I digitally record almost every game. This past week against VT we got outcoached but that is not the sole reason why we lost. We were the victims of highway robbery. It was obvious midway through the 2nd quarter that the officials working this game had orders from something/someone that Miami was NOT to even sniff victory in that game. In that sense the officials did a fine job carrying out that dubious mission. I just feel sorry for the kids and even for Shannon too. He still needs replacing though.

Manny, is Seantrell Henderson with the team now? Is there any info out there on how he looks? Does he have good feet? Is he in shape? One other thing, is he gonna get red-shirted? I sincerely hope not.

It must be hell covering the Canes with Randy Shannon being so secretive about everything. I understand why he might not trust the print media but I think he takes this a little too far. He is overly paranoid.

Pricemaster, Are you Sporticus from San Diego and Verms Hut? Rat Bastidd = FF Second F = fiend I have to wonder if this regime is going to roll the dice on Ginn for one more year. I personally hope not and think not but NY TEAM THAT REACHES FOR PAT WHITE IN THE 2ND ROUND is capable of just about anything. I think Pat White(bless his soul) was a huge waste of a #2 round pick even though it was our 2nd second rounder, it don't matter.

The ref who threw the flag in UM's "loss" (win)vs Ohio State in the chapmionship game Dat be none udder than Terry Porter. Good choice btw.
#1. Larry Coker #2. Donna Shalala UM president will be satisfied with mediocrity in the UM fb program. Took the huge donation made by the Edge and instead of putting it toward the football program she BUYS Cedars of Lebanon hospital. Plus she raised the academic requirements making it more difficult for the coach to attract and land recruits.. #3. Paul Dee(I know he's still in CG) for giving Coker big bucs to keep him from bolting to the NFL.(snicker) Then allowing Coker to fire some great assistants who were the heart and soul of the UM just to save his own lame back side. #4. Dave Wannstadt #5. Rick Spielmmann
