Default Re: WHATS WRONG WITH THE "U"

You expect everyone to have a roseya ttitude about Miami U?

Here's some history:



Quote:
A long-time booster of Hurricanes Football, 2 Live Crew member and local philanthropist Luther Campbell was said to have been behind what was referred to as a "pay-for-play" system, which involved cash rewards for things such as touchdowns and big hits.[17] His ties to the program were at one point so close that former Hurricanes coach Dennis Erickson used to occasionally call upon Campbell as an intermediary when he was having a problem with his players.

Quote:
On October 14, 2006, in the first meeting of cross-town programs, Miami and the Florida International Golden Panthers brawled after a PAT.

FIU cornerback Chris Smith wrestled Miami holder Matt Perelli to the ground after the kick and appeared to punch him in the chin. Another FIU cornerback, Marshall McDuffie, Jr., kicked Perelli in the head.[20] Miami's Anthony Reddick swung his helmet at FIU players and Miami's Brandon Meriweather kicked an FIU player. FIU's A'Mod Ned, who was injured, came onto the field and swung at Miami players with his crutches. The fight lasted just over one minute [3] before the coaches of both teams were able to separate the players. The Miami-Dade County police arrived on the field shortly afterward and remained a visual presence on the field and in the stands to prevent further fighting. The game was delayed approximately 15 to 20 minutes as the officials attempted to sort out which players were ejected and what, if any, penalty yards needed to be enforced.

The next day, 31 players from both schools 18 from FIU, 13 from Miami were handed one-game suspensions.
Those are the two most lasting images. Miami has also given the NFL a few less-than-classy players such as Warren Sapp, Micahel Irvin, and Kellen Winslow...who's "Soldier" remarks also shine a bad light on the program.

So Miami has a history, "Thug U" didn't just come out of nowhere. So stop calling all of us haters because we don't view Miami through the same rose colored glasses that you do. If you don't like our opinions, then ask a mod to close the thread.

IM SORRY BUT WHY IN THE HECK SHOULD I ASK TO CLOSE THIS THREAD...HOW ABOUT YOU AND THE "U" HATERS KEEP YOUR OPINIONS TO YOURSELF,AS I DIDNT ASK FOR THEM......this thread was for canes fans,and was asking them about our team........:rose color glasses,thats funny...its called being a fan of a team.....this thread wasnt for you,so please dont respond to it,i have no idea why you would other than to be a hater.........thanks for the history lesson...wow,two examples that convince me your right they are deserving of that nickname....and who started that fiu fight?......so a fiu player punches your player and then another kicks him in the head,and then another player hits your teammate with crutches and youre not suppose to do anything about it.....so cause the canes fought back,you think this makes your point for that nickname,to me its what youre suppose to do when a teammate gets hit like that....but im sure in the narrow minds that would call a team thug u would think they derserve to get beat down like that,....thier to blame not the team that started it...i said no haters cause i only wanted to hear from canes fans but i knew on a message board that wasnt going to happen cause some people just like to start things like this

Overreact much?

You get reasoned and sound arguments and because they aren't 100% favorable you cry a little and expect that to make things better?

Thug U is living down it's rep, BUT IT WAS A WELL EARNED REP, and it will take years to live it down. When better programs with real tradition have criminals and guys of low character, they get rid of them, or try to help them. Miami at one time embraced that type of player. I, along with most other reasonable people, will not quickly forget that.

If you bring up Nixon, people will talk Watergate. Marion Barry, cocaine. OJ Simpson, murder. The U? Thug U. That's just the way it is...

overreact much...im asking canes fans about our team and you haters come onto my thread and spread your hateful nicknames.....i can take they have a bad reputation as a reason,but you guys are going beyond saying that when you call them thug u and you keep calling them that.............and noone who has used the word "thug" on here has explained what they mean when they call my team that.....im not crying about what you guys are saying,i just dont understand why you feel to post on my thread when youre obviously not fans of the team.........i mean i'm not a fan of the buckeyes,and if someone posted a thread asking what was wrong with thier team,i wouldnt post on it,and if i did,i certainley would respect the person enough being a fan that i wouldnt express that i hated the team by calling them a terrible nickname like you guys have with thie thread here....................how many "criminals" do they have on the team,how many "criminals have they had on thier team.....cause if im not mistaken you cant play college football if you are a "criminal" as youd be in jail and couldnt play....i was trying to have a intelligent discussion about canes football but i guess that was too much to ask for on this board as you guys just like to resort to childlike name calling.......i can take people having complaints about my team,but bring actually facts and reasons,not just ripping on them,you guys are just saying,"well its cause they are thug u"and they are that,why?cause you say they are....they have players that are all thugs,ok...and no other team has thugs playing for them,they are all outstanding people,wow,i cant believe my canes are the only team that recuit them..............so they recuit thier players from the jail like the longest yard or something......so the canes are like a prison football team according to you guys.....well not to bad for a team of thugs to win that many national championships.......thug u...i get it,is that all you got?....cause im tired of hearing it,youve made your point,now go away

Is this your board? You don't "own" this thread. It's a public thread, in an open forum. And you are posting about one of the more notoriously corrupt programs in the history of college football.

I guarantee if you posted this thread abouyt OJ and tried to limit it to his football days, the same exact thing would happen. And, guess what? That's exactly what message boards are for. You can't control the subject matter. You can't direct the threads. You can't censor what people say.

You probably need to find a different board to post on, like "sensitivesouls.com" or something.

Default Re: WHATS WRONG WITH THE "U"

warden and rev...you both seem to have a problem with the "u" so why do you feel a need to keep posting on my thread.....i realize i dont own the board,,when did i say i did?.....and i know i cant control it,obviously...but i thought if i said "no hater ,please" that the people that hate the "u"(as i know there is alot of them out there)would read that and have enough respect and maturity to not post thier hate for "the u" on here......and i just cant understand the concept of why you would....just to be mean?....i understand how a message board works,i just dont understand the logic of posting about a team you dont like,especially when the person who started the thread nicly asks not to,that the person just wants to discuss thier team with fans of the team or people that can bring something other than hate and name calling to the topic.....and i just wanted to hear from "u" fans,but i guess that was that too much to ask.....why you felt a need to post on here is beyond me,what does it make you feel good to be a hater and make fun of someones team.......as i said i was looking for insight about my favorite team,a intelligent discussion....i was not asking,"hey what does EVERYONE think about the "u",please share with me......and youre right,this wasnt the board for it,i thought it was as it seems to have alot of in the know football people on here but i guess i was wrong about it,and for that im sorry for asking.........and youre right,im a newbie(whatever thats suppose to mean,was that suppose to be a insult towards me cause i happen to be new to this board,ok,good one,you got me....and i realize i cant control and censor people on here,...i said no haters as i was just trying to contact other "u" fans but for whatever reasons you both seem to feel a need and just had to share your hate for my team to me,...and then after i ask you,alright,i get your point move on you still feel a need to post on here,and i know i cant stop you but can we build a bridge and get over it....please.......

You have very poor reading comprehension along with your sensitivity problem. Not everything I said was "hater talk", as I gave the U some props for cleaning their act up.

Default Re: WHATS WRONG WITH THE "U"

You asked what the problem was with The U? Part of that problem is thier rep as Thug U. What do you not understand about that?

I give Randy Shannon props for starting the clean up, but some players, especially high school recruits...will want it to stay Thug U so they can act how they want and play football. Problem is, a lot of those players are the more talented ones.

Also, you'll have the talented players who don't want to go to Miami because of the Thug U rep. They don't want to be misconstrued at a thug or even a slightly bad person...so they will go somewhere else.

Don't worry, Miami U will clean up thier rep and soon I think thier football program will be back to being one of the best in the country.

But Shannon needs to avoid something like the brawl with the cross-city school...something else like that can wipe the talent out of the program, because I wouldn't be surprised of Randy Shannon cut any player involved in a fracas like that again.
