    Coach Martin's Monday press conference
    I love wathcing his pressers. Is brutally honest, and just fun to listen to. Just seems like a great motivator and teacher.

    A few older alums I ran into at bar were not sold on him yet. Thought the coaching was suspect during the game with the personal fouls and special teams. I tried to tell them that I truly believe that the sayler/ martin combo is the right fit and will bring us back not quite sure they bought it. It takes time for these things to develop, But then again they were around for the so called "glory days" where as I have been around since 2005 which is about the worst 10 year period in Miami football histroy. I guess its all perspective.
  • Valentine out as Big Ten referee after 34 seasons: 'I'll miss the coaches'

    I know he's done a couple games in Millett over the years, too.  I've enjoyed watching him let the game be played out but stepping in when necessary.  It'd be nice if the MAC would make him an offer.  
    Funny you say that- when I think of him I think of all the times he inserted himself way too much in the game. Over the years follwoing college basketball I always hated when he did any game I attended. 
  • Bowl????

    That Canes team isn't very good and really quitty.  You'd want to play them some place that's at least somewhat cold and potentially rainy and then get off to a good start.  
    I would love to see it rain in a dome  :)
  • Weathers Offers

    Looks like getting a look from St Johns as wellhttps://twitter.com/NYPost_Brazille/status/848260288054939649
  • As predictable as water being wet

    What are you talking about TD?

    These January camps, otherwise known as 'Camp Cupcake' have always largely been made up of MLS-based players. JK did the same thing during his tenure as manager.

    The camp lasts an entire month and doesn't fall in any FIFA international window so European based players are automatically out.
    This is exactly right. European players are not usually released to attend this camp. I mean look at last years camp same thing

  • Miami Football: Light the Night

    Class act Chuck Martin donated $1000 towards the cause. On the right hand side you can see the names of the donors. Pretty cool seeing our players names there.

    They are approaching the halfway point of their $10,000 goal. Let's help them out
    Regardless on the W-L record over the last couple years it is great to see Miami recruit good people above everything else. Good find.
  • CONCACAF Gold Cup

    Paul Ariola was the best player for me last night for the USMNT. Boyd/ Pulisic looked good as well.

     Besides that not much to write home about for the USMNT. 

    I know Berhalter plays a different style and it takes a while to get used to, but the last couple of games have been a rough go. Still need to find a consistent finisher. For me I  don't think zardes should start ever. I would rather see him through out bobby wood or even Soto from the U-20s over him. For all his speed he lacks the ability to come find the ball imo. He also has an awful first touch
  • New coaches same result

    Fordham is pretty bad again this year should be interesting to see what happens. At beginning of every year / around mac tourney time I always get excited about potentially making a run - this year not expected - but I’ll be there Friday to support. Not often Miami is in the NYC area
  • State of College Basketball

    I am enjoying the parody in the college bball game. BIG 10 has had some bottom feeder teams beat the so called "top" of the league. Big east also has had Depaul push #1 Nova and St Johns beat butler. Should be a fun year. I agree with @AORedhawk33 Creighton is a fun team to watch. Very well coached and way better than I thought they would be. Watson is very tough to stop off the dribble. 

    Freudian slip?
    100% meant it.... Na it was spell correct. Meant Parity, but Parody works also haha
