    You want to see a perfect example of how trying to build a program based largely on JUCOS and transfers doesn't work? Look no further than Miami's basketball program!!!!!!

  • A New Great Miami Moment!

    I have been an avid Miami fan since my freshman year, 1983. And I can tell you last night will go down as one of the great moments in Miami history! A Tillitz TD, Penno three pointer moment! The celebration in the stands and on the field after the game was amazing! Players were stoked! Hand slapping, high fives, screaming and cheering. And that was just me and my just turned 12 year old daughter Celia! At one point we were cheering on the field with Renate Crawford, wife of Miami's President and the next congratulating JT Jones. It was a great moment I will never forget and best of all my daughter got to share it with me!!

  • Always Support the Players!!

    This goes without saying, but we should always support the players/team. No matter what we feel about the coaching staff and the ill advised comments the HC has made that have drawn derision from across the country. So Miami RedHawk players-WE ARE BEHIND YOU!! LOVE AND HONOR!!

  • NYTimes article on beer at college football games

    The NYT research was done by someone who never attended a football game and doesn't drink beer!
  • Mediocrity-The New Status Quo?

    I am borrowing some of this from Joe and Alex, but they made excellent points and I think they need to be shared. In the last 14 years, much of it under Sayler, we have had 1 winning football season, only 1 win against a P5 team (Syracuse if you count them), only 2 bowl appearances, and only 1 bowl win. Pretty much the worst in the MAC over that time frame. Since Sayler took over the helm, we have been to 1 hockey tournament (lost first round), 0 NCAA basketball tournaments, 0 NITs (except the women under Megan), 1 CBI (first round loss), 0 MAC championships in football (until MAC East this year).  Other than perhaps women's volleyball, we have not had one consistently good team in any sport over the last 14 years. Not one. We have fired football coaches, hockey coach, mens basketball coach, womens basketball coaches. Yet, we are still mired in mediocrity (or the new status quo). We have a dwindling and largely apathetic fan base. And frankly, given the above, who can blame them. 

    I am tired of seeing performances like this past weekend in football and last night in basketball. And frankly, I am tired of seeing people apologize for this. Being a Miami fan is largely a joyless exercise. And let's be honest, there are very few of us left. Is the sky falling? I don't know. But what I do know is we have settled for mediocrity for so long, I fear it is the new status quo. 
  • NCAA Coaching Carousel 2018

    I'm not saying to hire him. But I am suggesting it wouldn't be a bad idea to at least have Lance Guidry on the list of people to talk to. 21-12 at McNeese St as head coach. Again, not saying he is my choice. Just a name to throw in the mix. 
  • Bowl????

    We need to put out a press release that since we beat NIU we are declaring ourselves MAC champs!! B)
  • Fire Chuck Martin

    I don't know what was worse, the way we ended the first half or the athletic department not knowing how to spell "recruiting" in materials they are sending. Neither should happen. But they did. I would hope that someone learns from this. End of the first half management was classic CM. He is a terrible on field manager. Terrible. But I am reading a lot of gloom and doom on here that isn't warranted, yet. We had a true freshman QB performing on the road at a pack, very loud B10 stadium. I was there, it was loud. We had some other true freshman perform well. Like Austin Ertl. I thought he did some nice things. As did Kobe Hilton, and I hope his end of the game injury isn't to serious. I knew we wouldn't get to Stanley and we didn't. We only had 4 healthy DE to start the game. I was more disappointed in how poorly our pass coverage was, taking into account the absence of a pass rush of course. Iowa receivers were open all day. And our WR have to stop dropping balls. I will write that off to first game jitters. Overall, I wasn't pleased to lose but I wasn't mad either. Not at the team. The team played their asses off. I was pretty proud of the effort. Our coaching staff, well they are what they are. I will say this, CM had them more ready to play from the first whistle than he has in many other games where we came out sleepwalking. It was nice to see the team come out engaged and not awed by the environment, so that was a plus. First half was pretty good. Second half, not so good. But I saw some positives and will look at it that way. And a big shout out to the Iowa fans. They were terrific in game atmosphere and how they were treating the Miami fans. So now we move on to what should be a winnable game. 
  • Game Thread: Battle for the Bell

    I can't take much more of this. It has gotten to the point where these games aren't even enjoyable for me to watch anymore. It's like watching bad 1980s horror movies, I know how it is going to end. All the stupid people get slaughtered and the bad guy gets away laughing hysterically.
