  • I was at the 2000 game too. Got tickets from buddy and wound up sitting next to a Miami student and his dad. He grew up in Upper Arlington (right next to OSU) and spent the whole game rooting for OSU. Wanted to dump a full cup of Coke on him. That's…
  • I intend this as 2 serious questions to those more tuned in than me: Can someone here cite a game we won in the Martin tenure (that we actually should have lost) by coming from behind to score a surprise win? How many games have we lost that we ac…

  • Why/how? Smart. I'm one of the few idiot fans and media willing to sit there and watch a murder in person. You may be called later as a witness. Nah. He'll just be called an idiot. In that case, try for an insanity defense.

  • Some kids just rise to the occasion and play better than they practice. The best solution is to give all three kids enough snaps under live fire in actual games to determine who will emerge as the starter.The new rule allowing a kid to play 4 games …
  • As usual, in pre-season and early fall, there is a lot of speculation about the fortunes of teams in the upcoming season. I just hope that our coaches spend as much time as our players do in deepening their skill sets involving play calling, situati…

  • Well, I certainly hope he has a different message in the locker room, but Chuck Martin does two things as a coach that consistently irritate me when I see it from any coach.  One, he's a poor-mouther.  It's fine as a G5 coach to take a public line l…
  • I just don't understand how anyone can support a coach who called at least a few Miami fans "idiots" and called our school cheap (despite all the improvements made to our football facilities). I think his trophy rant was tongue in cheek, and if he w…
  • May the best QB play....we'll have four games to figure it out under live fire.
  • Let's have a nice three horse race..........
  • From today's Mercury News: — When cornerback Quinten Rollins deftly broke up a pass on the sideline, some teammates celebrated, “Hey, new guy!” Rollins, a 2015 second-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers, was signed to replace Greg Mabin, who s…
  • Q signed with the 49ers yesterday.  Greg Mabin, who expected to earn a backup CB spot for San Francisco (he was on the active roster for 13 games last year, but bounced back and forth a few times from the practice squad), injured his calf Wednesday …
  • In media circles, all press is good at it draws attention....even bad press. What you do not want is no press.
  • Just an observation...The word expectations seems to be taken in two different ways.  Some people are saying  what they think the team is going to do this season ( 5-7 - 7-5).  Other people are talking about what they think Miami and a coach in his …
  • Build it and they will come. Where are they?
  • I know I will take heat for saying this, but I really do tire of hearing CM talk about us like we don't even belong on the same field as OSU, Iowa, and UC. I could do without his defeatist attitude. You never heard Walker or Hoeppner make those type…
  • This reminds me of the old tale about a coach who was able to regularly beat an opponent with whatever players he had at his disposal. When asked how he could always do this, he replied: "Well, I'd be willing to bet that if I took your players and y…

  • I'm guessing that "fall" in the title refers to this coming football season, not the weather...or, gulp, some fall in football. In respective order: Hopeful, pleasant, worse record than last year.
  • 15-0 might be a stretch but 12-2 or do you believe in miracles 13-1 has a nice ring to it. For context, since the start of the Playoff era there has been 303 individual seasons of G5 football. Of those 303 seasons, 4 have resulted in 12 wins and 4 …
  • UC hosts UCLA and McAfee was at Cincinnati’s training camp https://twitter.com/gobearcatsfb/status/1159845633647423488?s=21 That was pretty cool....great for UC's kids.
  • My expectations are based on the fact that Miami hired a top notch OC from Notre Dame and that this is Y6 of his tenure and he has landed top-3 recruiting classes over the past few years.  As such, Miami fans should EXPECT the following: Iowa - L (0…
  • L&H pretty much nailed it. A 7-5 record with a win against UC and a bowl game would meet my expectations (or hopes) given the schedule this year. We need to beat UC!! If we do not beat UC and go 1-3 OOC as most here expect, then Chuck needs t…
  • I believe his extension was through 2020.
  • Some of the loudest crowds I've seen at a Miami game have been when we played at Michigan, at THE OSU and at Wisconsin in FB and at UD arena and at Indy and St. Louis in BB games.
  • I would be happy in today’s uneven environment it we simply made a commitment to try to be the best team in the Group of 5, like UCF, Cincinnati, Boise State and Fresno do. Over the last 5 years coinciding with Martin's tenure, Miami is 0-6 against …
