The Miami Hurricanes basketball team hasn’t made the tournament since 2008. New coach Jim Larranaga knew the Canes needed a spark when he took over in 2011. So he brought in a local celebrity, noted superclutch basketball WINNER Chris Bosh in to scare his players into becoming a winning squadron. And it worked!
Before we get to one of the more deranged sports radio rants we’ve ever heard, we should probably note that for the guy who delivered it, Dan Sileo, it wasn’t exactly out of character. What it was, though, was completely grade-A effin’ crazeballs.
Earlier, we delved into how into the entire spectacle of college football (and any sport, for that matter) recruiting is pretty creepy from a fan perspective. Well, now imagine how into it the coaches get.
This week, UNC wide receiver Dwight Jones told reporters that someone hit him in the groin during Saturday’s game against Miami. As you’ll see after the cut, Jones wasn’t lying.
Ouch. North Carolina cornerback Charles Brown absolutely leveled Miami wide receiver Travis Benjamin today at Kenan Memorial Stadium. Luckily, Benjamin got up and appeared to be okay but… holey moley did he get de-cleated.
When Maryland unveiled their many, many, many new football uniforms last month, they were the talk of the sport. Not always in a good way, mind you, but like we said at the time, these were bold choices. There were 16 different possible uniform combinations. Two different helmets. The Terps showed off so many uniforms that day, in fact, that the only ones they didn’t show were…the ones they’re wearing tonight against Miami in their season opener.
Charles Robinson is a Yahoo! Sports investigative reporter who broke the newest story of improper benefits in big-time collegiate athletics when he detailed the exploits of convicted Ponzi schemer (and former Miami Hurricanes booster) Nevin Shapiro.
From afar, it would appear, as Fox Sports national columnist Jason Whitlock likes to say, that Robinson “did the damn thing.”
A University of Miami booster, incarcerated for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme, has told Yahoo! Sports he provided thousands of impermissible benefits to at least 72 athletes from 2002 through 2010.
That sure feels like the damn thang got diddy did.
But wait! Whitlock, in a column published Wednesday, says that, no, the dern diddly did not get Dirk Diggled.
ESPN football expert Matt Millen expects Jarrett Lee to fill in for Miami’s Jacory Harris when the Hurricane quarterback sits out his NCAA-mandated one game suspension. That’s not very likely.
It’s one thing to be compared to one of the most famous terrorists of all-time…it’s another to have that comparison come from the man you modeled your lifestyle (at least, your involvement with Miami athletics) after.
