Suck it NCAA
Good article on the team's future.
Here the Hurricanes are, with the No. 7-ranked team in the country -- undefeated and the best team Al Golden has had in his three years there -- free and clear to play in whatever game the postseason has to offer. For the first time in Golden’s tenure, the Canes can shake the shadow of the NCAA. They can focus on Saturday’s game against Wake Forest without wondering whether they'll even be allowed to play in the title game should they get that far. Next week, they can fully embrace the matchup against rival Florida State, knowing their BCS ranking is more than just a number. On Nov. 9, if everyone follows the script, Miami will host Virginia Tech in the game that will determine the Coastal Division winner, and the Hurricanes can take the field knowing that nobody is going to strip them of that opportunity this fall.
Golden has put himself in the ACC's Coach of the Year conversation, not only for the Canes’ success this year, but also because of their focus and the staff's ability to continue to recruit in spite of the looming NCAA sanctions. Miami has the No. 4 recruiting class in the country right now. If the staff can hold that position, it would be the Hurricanes' second top-10 class in three years and third straight top-15 class. That's working magic, considering Golden has put together three straight classes with the program's future in limbo. No longer can the NCAA investigation be used against Miami on the recruiting trail. Instead, Golden and his staff can sell a top-10 team that's heading in the right direction.
For anyone interested in donating, CanesInsight is taking donations to have a plane fly a banner over the stadium for the WF game, thanking Golden and Shalala. Looks like they already got over $1,000 in donations and have enough for several fly overs. Would be pretty sweet to get a banner for every game. Paypal link is page 12.
if i'm Golden i'd go back and try to steal some of the top recuits that have verbals with other schools now that the cloud is lifted and the team is getting recognition.
A little underhanded but nothing compared to the stuff they do to us. Go flip a few 5 stars.
Braxton sounds great. We could certainly use a Wes Welker clone in the slot.
Cant wait for my Noles to smash the Canes next saturday night.
Now I have to change my screen name BALLINNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!38-17
The Bills might not win another game this year slick.
Most Noles fans are pretty cool and i always wish them well unless they are playing Miami.
Actually the games in Tallahassee means little as long as we beat VT and kick that seminole azz at a neutral site for the ACC crown.
