Thanks for the memories...

It was fun in the beginning. We had our good times, but when the honeymoon ended it became clear that we are just too different. Coker, I hope you find success and happiness wherever you go. I would recommend more of a Midwestern situation. The U thanks you for the 2001 National title and that 2002 national title that we were robbed on. It has been bad between us for a while, but now that it is over I can say thanks for the good, it wasn't all bad. Bon Voyage.

na na hey hey goodbye

Coker is out!

Coker was fired after his 6th win of the season. Larry will coach the team if they are selected for a Bowl game. Finish it strong Larry! This is a great way to showcase your talents for your next job.

Glorious W

I could not control myself during the game, I was like a school girl jumping up and down in excitement. I almost forgot what it felt like to win.

Larry Coker, nice win. A lot of things in life are all about the right time and place. Larry is a great coach and I am sure his future will be bright. He should take some time off before jumping into another coaching job.

To the team: great job, we have a lot to work on but you deserve this, and a win is a win.

Shalala has put herself in a tough spot. Will she let this win blind her judgment on the Coker issue? Has her indecision hurt our recruiting? I personally believe that is one of the areas that Coker needs help on. We need to act fast, we do not want to loose any top recruits to Florida or other coaches by dragging out feet now. After the game Coker was commenting on recruiting this Sunday?

The words that keep echoing in my head are comments by Gino Torretta during the game. He stated that while standing on the Hurricanes sidelines he felt that team was missing something...The overwhelming desire to win football games. Many might refer to that as the Miami swagger, well lets go win bowl game and get some swagger back.

This is not the end of a dynasty!

Here is a pretty good article by Mark Schlabach we found on ESPN. My only disagreement is that this is not the end of a dynasty for Miami, it is only the end of the beginning.

Go Canes, kick some BC butt! Goble goble

Hitting rock bottom

Sometimes in order to get getter you need to get worse. This season while painful to watch was a necessary step in the rebuilding process. If it was just another ho hum 9-3 season it would have taken us another year or 2 before Coker was fired. The damage is done and the season is over; I only hope we can come away from thanksgiving without having out nutz kicked in on national television.

allcanes, here in cane nation we want every game to end in victory but if losing a game will get us Spurrier or get Coker out faster then we need to take one for the team (especially when we have already had the worst season in 30 years).

Coker responded to the rumor mill

Coker was asked about the Spurrier rumor and his response was, no one told me I was fired yet. Wow, if you can not see the future on this one then no one can help you.

If someone was able to coach the NFL Pro Bowl team for two year (just as if it was any normal team) do you think they would have a great record and maybe win a superbowl or 2? Of course they would, if you have all the best players you are going to win a few games (especially on the college level). Coker had that, when he took over the Miami Hurricanes in 2001 he was coaching at least 15 future NFL hall of famers. Everyone likes to talk about the Coker record and how his win percentage is tops in college, but if you take away the first 2 gimme years (Shalala could have coached the 2001 and 2002 canes to a national title) he has mediocre win percentage. Miami might go 5-7 and has not had this bad of a year since we went 3-8 in 1977. Coker coaches the U to the worst season in 30 years and his response is no one has told him he is out of a job yet.

Watching our games this year was painful and many times it felt like the opposing coach was calling our plays. Ouch.

Michigan, Michigan, Michigan

Michigan is just about the only thing the sports world is talking about. We are going to clear this up for everyone, Michigan is NOT the 2nd best team in the nation! It is not Miami, it is not USC, it could however be the Gators (I hate saying that).

The score of the Ohio St. Michigan game was way closer than the game was. The final count should have been Ohio 42 Michigan 31. Ohio State tore up the Michigan defense with a spread offence and there are a couple teams that would do the same; Florida, Texas, and Louisville to name a few.

Michigan is not a bad team but they are not the 2nd best team in the county.

The BCS shows us again what those letters stand for: BULL CRAP SYSTEM!!!!!! A playoff system would generate just as much revenue (probably more if it was done right). I wonder what generates more money, the NFL playoffs or the BCS? Wow, maybe the NFL should adopt the BCS system.

Spurrier and Miami...a match made in heaven.

Could it be true? Rumors are circulating about Spurrier possible taking the Canes head coaching job in 2008. Spurrier has denied the rumor but we know the old ball coach always has a couple tricks up his sleeve. Imagine the possibilities, Spurrier joining the greatest college football program in the history of sports.

More about the rumor.

Don't be a Moron...

Your gonna have to make a better pitch than that if you want Tuna for dinner. Tuna or Schiano sound good.

Friday, November 17, 2006

Special for today: Tuna?

OK, Butch has signed with the Tar Heels. His loss cause Miami might be down and out now but North Carolina sucks the big one full time. It could be fate, Bill Parcels should leave the Cowboys at the end of the season and Miami has for some stupid reason decided to keep Coker through this season.

Tuna, Tuna, Tuna!!!

Parcels would be a great match for The U.

Would the real Miami please stand up.

Last time we are talk gonna talk about this. Never refer to the Miami Ohio University as the University of Miami, Ohio. The only thing that ever Miami Ohio ever barf-sharted out was Ben Roethlisberger, and look at him. The Steelers suck and he is a large part of that. They may have one the Super Bowl last year but we all know that was only by default.

Back to the point, there is only one "U" and everybody knows it means THE REAL MIAMI! Broadcasters stop showing your stupidity and get with the program, you are only embarrassing yourself.

Michigan Wimparines

That was funny!

on Cold Pizza this morning there was a rep Don something on talking about the Michigan vs Ohio St. matchup this weekend and he basically called Michigan fans a bunch of wimps. He stated that Michigan fans should not wear their school colors and that they should be extra careful not to anger Ohio State fans. He later goes on to say that he thinks Buckeye fans take football more seriously. What a Dumas! How does a school let an idiot like that represent them.

Lost to the Terds, oops I mean Terps

There were a few positive factors about the game: Campbell was outstanding again, the D was a rock in the second half, and Kirby got some game time. Give Freeman as much time as possible this season is a compete loss at this point and it is the best way to get him ready for next year.

Unfortunately the lack of playtime would not hurt Kyle and his NFL career ...he has none (burn)! On a similar note, why not get the NEW coach in there so has some time to work with the players and get a little something cooking for next year.

Still, as the final seconds ran off the clock all that I could think about was that Lynyrd Skynyrd Classic "That Smell"

Fire Coker and Dee Right Now...

One more loss and it's the worst season in almost 30 years. Maryland Coker? F___ing Maryland? You have got to be kidding me. Donna I am just about done with you also. We need the trifecta, Coker, Dee, Shalayla - Zee Ya! Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Shooting Deuce, The Cluster F---...

It is not National News yet but the word is the

95 Bryan Pata DL 6-4 272 SR (3V) Miami, FL (Central HS)

was shot and killed tonight in Miami. All true U people should pray for the family's and pay their respect to the fallen.

Yo Drunk Fiends...

Apparently "Several Miami players said fans were spitting on the Hurricanes as they walked off the field and some recruits, making official visits for the game, also had beer spilled on them from the stands." according to the AP. If anybody F's with the recruits we might have to beat your ass. That is unacceptable. Recruits and the players should be respected. Coker is week and Paul Dee is too stupid to know who to pay big money to. When we shed tweedle Dee and Coker we will be back. If shooting 2 does not ruin us.

Coker didn't mean to make us cry...

If he comes back again this time next year again, carry on, carry on.
Cause nothing real matters if he coaches.

Butch get your suit on, we need you.

Butch we need ya!

What is this non sense about Butch Davis coaching the North Carolina Tar Heels? Butchie has hinted in the past that we would like to return to the U. If he holds out a little longer for a coaching job he may bet that wish.

What the hell is in NC except a crappy Tar Heel football team?

Thank you Michael

Michael Irving, one of the greatest Hurricane plays ever as well as an NFL Hall Of Famer has gone on the record as saying Coker needs to go. He goes on to say that it not personal and he is right, it is not personal. Get the F out Coker and fast.

Larry Coker will go on to be a coach somewhere else and will probably have a fine career. He did have one of the greatest starts a college coach could ever have (I hope he sent Butch Davis a thank you card), and now that he is done riding the Miami Hurricanes into the ground it is time for him to move on.

So, thank you Michael for not holding you tongue any longer.

p.s. Coker do not let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!
