The U beat up on mighty FGCU by the overpowering score of 3-2! Lol We scored 1 in the bottom of the 9th to win it. Posted by: AeroCane | April 14, 2021 at 07:07 PM Very impressive. NOT.

Alpine...what Country do you currently live in and where were you born? Have you lived in more than one Country in your life? If so, which is your favorite? If you could move anywhere in Europe what Country would you live in? Would you ever consider living in the United States, Canada, Mexico or elsewhere in the world outside of Europe?

From UM Grad Burgess Owens: Black History Month is an important annual celebration of the black community in America. Our ancestors might have come from different places and at different times in our nation’s history, but we should all be proud to call ourselves Americans. This month has a lot of power when you consider the principles that helped our ancestors rise from slavery and a segregated society. My great-great-grandfather was brought to America on a slave ship, and he did not have such an opportunity to pursue his dream until he escaped on the Underground Railroad. He later became a successful entrepreneur, thanks to freedom and the American Dream. I grew up in the segregated Deep South in the 1960s during a time when the barriers of Jim Crow were being torn down. Despite growing up in this divisive era, I came to recognize the importance of God, country, family, and freedom, and hard work. While I have faced many challenges throughout my life, I have faced them head-on and always picked myself up after failing to try again. In large thanks to a strong family and God, I went on to become the third black student to be offered a scholarship to the University of Miami and graduated with a degree in Biology/Chemistry. The pride from my community in my achievement laid true the principles that keep the black community strong: patriotism, education, work ethic, discipline, and respect. Thanks for your continued support! Burgess Owens

OGV...you disappoint me. Can't even pick a good fight on the blog anymore! LOL I was going to declare today "Pick a fight on the blog day for absolutely no reason" but alas there is no more fighting anymore it seems? Man I miss the blog war days...be calm and carry on.

OGV...I am just curious, do you not have any quarters to put into the Google machine to press GO to see the results of the best college BB coaches? Tell me it is not so? As the reigning UM basketball expert on the blog I would have thought that you would have had 5-10 BB coaches in your back pocket that you would hire if you were the UM AD. Instead you interrogate and berate those who do not have an answer to replace the current coach? That is WEAK sauce. And then you act like you do not have the Internet? You do not have the technology to find these answers? Or are you just a lazy ass like most people in the world and on the blog?

How can 2 schools recognize talent and offer a ship before u do. Kids sitting close by. No way a school 2000 miles away should beat u offering a kid that now has 31 offers from every major program. Posted by: H | January 13, 2021 at 11:42 AM Easy. UM contacts the recruit, recruit tells UM staff that he wants to go to school out of Miami. He has never been out of Florida and wants to see the world. Wants to get away from his family or his negative influencers or his hood. UM stops recruiting him.

I get tired of watching other teams having guys run free all over the place and we act like we are playing tag with the DB's. Not only do we constantly make greenhorn QB'S look like A-A but the same can be said for opposing DB'S. Posted by: The Herb | January 07, 2021 at 12:35 AM Herb, we all share your pain. There are times where we see opposing WRs with 6 yards or more of separation while our crew can even get 6 inches. No bueno.

WR Is another possibility but dam we have 10 or so once the freshmen are in and u can't tell me we can't develop at least 4 out of 10? Posted by: HerbieIbis | January 06, 2021 at 05:54 PM Why not? We haven't done it for the last three years so...there is that. Putting most if not all of your hope in the freshpersons (politically correct form of Freshmen) is a reach. I saw where the WR Heisman Trophy winner from Bama would stay after practice EVERYDAY to catch an extra 100 passes to perfect his craft. Tell me how many UM WRs are doing that?

Can Manny replace each one with someone better? Well, it's going to come down to the pockets and cooperation of his supporters. Posted by: Killerbeez41 | January 05, 2021 at 09:43 PM I doubt it. But we will see.
