  • I hope I am wrong but I am pretty sure our TE commit James Carnie from Firth, NEB, is now going to Nebraska. Sure seems that way from his twitter page. Big hit if true. Kid is a great TE prospect.  Hmm yeah doesn't look good. Not sure if he's actua…
  • Great hire by Toledo!Best of luck Mark.
  • Nice interview of Coach MartinKeep up the great work Kyle and CalvinLove and Honor!
  • Wow! This looks like a brightly lit fresh place. Millet is beyond overhaul stages.I also like the American Flag look on the seat colors. Let’s get Miami back to greatness in hoops!
  • Bring back some old school Big Ten Home and Away - plus BG and WMU.
  • AZ and Boise are both great places to visit. You must not have been to Tucson. Tucson, AZ would be an even better place for a bowl! Super fun city to visit with great food, weather,, and scenes.
  • Dick you have a point about Boise in Dec - weather perhaps a factor  - Mountain West competition  a plus however ( what about a Miami v Air Force matchup ? )-the skiing and other winter sports in Sun Valley and other locations  also  a big plus if a…
  • I love the home games against the power 5. I also love service academy series games. Toledo and NIU bring in the Power 5. UC does this too. Fans love this. There is a fine line between pay games and buying some good home games and Miami has not done…
  • AZ and Boise are both great places to visit.Awesome skiing 4.5 hours to the East at Jackson and Yellowstone in the winter is fantastic. I love playing the MTN West Teams. A NY6 bowl game would be better.
  • That is silly talk about CMU dropping football to D3. It is a very large university. I can’t see that happening to them.  If that happens, we will see many group of 5 teams across the country fall. 
  • Miami will make it, but some may not in MAC and other group of 5 conferences. Even some schools in power leagues will struggle if the fall season does not happen. Rutgers already had a roughly $50 million dollar deficit from sports going into this. …
  • Kent, Akron, Cleveland State combined with a “Northeastern University” name might bring a pretty big U To the table and a really solid sports program. It might take a while to rival BIG Northwestern, but could be interesting. FB, BB, Soccer - all wo…
  • https://247sports.com/Season/2021-Football/CompositeTeamRankings/ MAC currently with 4 teams in Top 50 for 2021 recruiting commits. Miami is #26! While other teams will move up over time, it is still welcome to see.
  • My opinion: I think we will see abbreviated seasons with fans with masks in stands. There will be mandated 25-30% seating in order to maximize separation of fans. Also, season ticket holders will only possibly get 1/4 of a season and they will be se…
  • 247 Sports has us ahead of Alabama with their 4 star.Move over SEC - here comes the MAC Attack! 53 21
  • Indiana State just added. To any naysayers, here are my thoughts. Miami has great facilities. They are on par with the Big Ten, Big East, ACC. Some of these kids that will come to this  camp wouldn't otherwise visit Miami for a variety of reasons. N…
  • Overall, is is sad to see a program with huge potential have such a bummer year.
  • It sometimes looks like Miami holds off on hiring people in ICA because of budgetary reasons (money). I was always told on tests that never and always are usually wrong answers, but for this statement you might actually be able to use “always” ins…
  • 2 words about Miami Basketball this year: (feel free to add more words to the list) Pathetic Disappointing 
    in 20 losses Comment by JHVMUFBAlum March 9
  • Get rid of all I-AA (FCS) games PLEASE. They don’t add money for us. Fans don’t really have lots of interest. It adds one potential win and we have sadly even lost which is even worse. 4 OOC GAMESUC yearly Power 5Service Academy series (USAFA, USMA,…
  • We would (and any MAC school) would crush Dayton.Dayton was Div III football for years, but then the NCAA required schools to have football reclassified into “Div I” around 1992-1993 for those schools with DI BB and DIII FB. Essentially they require…
  • Maybe he can talk his teammate (Frazier) into playing 4 more years with him at MIAMI? I’m sure Miami could find him a spot on our roster as well. :)
  • This should be used as a motivational tool by the staff.Yes, we won the conference and had a winning season and went to a bowl, BUT was this a fluke? The media still does not believe we are good. So it is now time to show the media, they are very wr…
  • I have it recorded. Hopeful for change and some wins!
  • One last thing....This thread seems to have digressed from the title a bit. (My recent posts included.)These are general MU discussions about coaching and the Athletic Dept. 
  • I have to add 3 other reasons besides budget why Miami has struggled compared with schools like for example: Memphis and Boise on the field.  Both are bigger schools (more alums = more fans/more $$)Both are in cities which can draw fans to seatsBoth…
  • Btw - Shane just named Football Scoop FCS OC of the year at JMU (playing for Natty). Good guy and glad to see he’s succeeding. I think he had the talent to be a HC but wasn’t developed - may get another shot. Agree, he got thrown into the fire.He wa…
  • I’m predicting a 4-0 preseason. UC/Pitt/Ark-PB/Army - all go down with 3/4 games played at our HOME.Lock the gate, take no prisoners. EMU should have won against Pitt in bowl in Detroit. We need this Pitt game. Chuck needs this win.Let’s go HAWKS 20…
  • Overall, very nice effort in the game by the team.The bad ref recall on video was upsetting and seriously affected the outcome.  Congrats to the team for winning the MAC and a winning record and a bowl game appearance.I am looking forward to a much …
  • Shotgun on the goal line is offensive.
