Canesfan Satisfaction Meter: 73.5%

[1) It is SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 18. Headed down to Homestead for today's NASCAR grand finale. Hearing loss shall likely ensue. 2) Find our main Collball Week 12 post, featuring UM-USF, directly below this in the blog. 2) Check out our video channel at YouTube/TheGregCote (under construction; new vids soon) and join us on Twitter @gregcote]

UM self-imposes another postseason ban:: Miami early Monday reveaed it will self-impose another postseason ban, removing the Canes from a bowl game and also from a possible spot in the ACC championship game. The second straight such action is meant to mitigate looming NCAA penalties related to the ongoing Nevin Shapiro-related investigation.

Seismic Saturday! Miami, BCS get lucky: Seismic Saturday in college football, with No. 1 Kansas State and No. 2 Oregon both losing. K-State vs. Oregon was not many folks' idea of a great BCS National Championship game in Miami. Now it's looking like Notre Dame and, yes, Alabama, are in the drivers' seats to get here. Sexier matchup. Better draw. Better TV ratings.

CANESFAN SATISFACTION METER: G11: Results are certified in the latest Canesfan Satisfaction Meter, and they show 73.5 percent overall satisfaction in the wake of Saturday's 40-9 home-finale victory over the South Florida Bulls putting UM's season record at 6-5 and gaining bowl-eligibility. In its fourth year, our 1aa1csm12blog's CSM polls are your invitation after every Hurricanes game to vote on your overall satisfaction with the team and season. The CSM is a continuing weekly gauge of how UM football fans are feeling. Criteria for voting is your own, but I suggest you consider the most recent game's performance and caliber of opponent, season as a whole, program's direction, and your overall degree of optimism -- all in the context of reasonable expectations. Polls never close (you may still vote), but results are certified official the morning after one full day of voting. In this case that was around 9 a.m. today/Monday.

Mr. Woodcock,

as the ole shadow has been saying all year long, USC and matt barkley were overrated and the bruins just wouldn't lose. as i was pulling for the bruins, i am happy for them after lame kifin put up a 0-50 score on them. lame kiffin and dady ought to be history, but we'll see if a victory against ND can save their a**es. matt barkley has thrown a ton of INTs this year and his decison to not enter last year's draft is gonna hurt him.methinks he won't drop to the 3rd round as one draftnik had him, but if he goes in round onew he'll be at the bottom, but then again is genno smith better than him as a pro prospect? YESSSSSS

Nice win for the young Canes, USF is not a very good team but a win is a win, this year has been about the young guys getting experience, we'll be much better next year.

They should self impose again, it will look good to the NCAA and it will give the young Canes more time to hit the weight room and get stronger for next year, winning another game or two is meaningless.

Shadow, Like you I'm glad UCLA beat the trojans, kiffin is an idiot, I think he is has good as gone.


there have been a few times when i have rooted for the bruins, most notably the year that the 4th string QB john barnes hit the wideout that went to the 49ers for a 90 yard incredible catch and run that won the game. it was another in a long streak of back-up QBs beating the trojans. jj stokes seemed like aperfect fit for san francisco but didn't cut it. also remember the game- i was there- when dan fouts was injured and 5' 8" harvey winn led an upset of USC at the coliseum. the kiffins have one shot to stay, which is to derail ND as USC did to the irish in 1970. if this team was anywhere near what "the experts" had them pegged as pre-season, they'll score non-stop against ND; the issue is can they stop the irish.it says here that they will win in barkley's last home game as ND has not seen the passing attack that the trojans possess; but if barkley is gonna throw picks, the irish will be in the game for the vase. UGGGHHHH +!!!

this was a much needed win, after blowing last weeks game this team needed to come out and blow out a team they were supposed to blow out. Hopefully they beat duke and not self impose a bowl ban if they make the ACC championship, these young players could use the extended season and the extra practice throughout the whole month of december, they have a lot of work to do and a lot of things they need to fix, the season cannot end next week because next year starts next week!


if oregon loses, they won't even be playing for the rose bowl!! stanford beats an already in UCLA and they play the bruins again in the pac-? title game. if barkley plays, ND could lose to USC, georgia could beat alabama and play FSU, if the seminoles beat florida. hold on to your playoffs as i am enjoying this immensely. maybe clemson would jump into the fray if the alligators beat FSU. permuatations galore!!


stanford could lose to ucla while oregon defeats the beavers and the the ducks are in the conference game, i believe. or maybe the beavers beat the ducks while stanford loses and then the beavers play the bruins in the conference championship. the ole shadow is getting older and i can't remember all the games, but i believe that stanford lost a pac-? game and loss #2 would mean that a duck victory in the civil war puts them in the conference playoff. unreal!!

shadow, few things better than sharing a game with one's freshman Bruin and witnessing a son's ah-hah moment, and conversion over a rivalry that has been going on so many years before our time.

Not as close as watching those first steps, but somewhere in the ballpark.


NOTHING BEATS those moments, agree 100%...

Shadow, ND has clear sailing to the championship game now, Barkley is hurt and I don't think he is going to play next week.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrtuBas3Ipw America, Israel's bitch since 1948.

Bibi dearest,

I won't be going to visit you on my first foreign trip as president after all. You're not really as popular in the States as everyone thought.

yep, and maybe the U can pull an opponent they can beat like Prairie View, Montana St or St Mary's school for lesbians in Rhode Island.

Hey man, its destiny. Notre Dame is back this year, it is their year. Notre Dame will beat USC & whoever is next on the road to the national championship.

I'm making my first Cajun dinner... Gumbo & Cajun rice.

Yep, and Penn State can pull an opponent to...no one. Because they're banned from bowl games for covering up their coach raping children in their locker room.

Oh wait, I forgot, you're a LSU fan now, right Jimbo?

Make that Notre Dame.

College ball just isn't for some people.


the same scenario looms -theisman and his undefeated irish- the beloved herald-examiner (20X better than the times sports pages) had inserts all week "the irish are coming, the irish are coming" and usc at 5-4-1 didn't look like it was gonna be in the game. however, a downpour that saturday, a key fumble by ND recovered for a trojan TD, and even over 500 yards passing by theisman in an absolute deluge, didn't stop the trojans from registering 1 38-28 win. you'll also remember that in ara's firsts season he brought in an undefeated team that was ahead either 14-0or 17-0 and lost on a craig fertig, RIP to rod sherman 4th down TD pass. don't take it for granted that USC will not put up a fight with/without barkley. it says here ND gets beat by a team like its predecessors that can salvage its season with a win over its biggest rival.

OC Dolphin,

there isn't a better bruin moment than beating USC for a shot at the rose bowl against whoever comes from the north; stanford must win the regular season game or tyhe ducks will be in the conference championship game. mora, jr put them through an incredibly tough training camp and has gotten the results. sat next to mora, sr when he was heading back to LA after giving his pep talk at the NFL rookie enclave at la costa and we took that 40 minute flight-probably 15 minutes in the air and 25 going upor coming down. mora senior is a truly likabale guy whos e"playoffs!" quotes will keep him in NFL lore for eternity. also, a darned good football coach; i believe he was at the helm of that NO defense that gets ranked within the top five alltime for its brilliant season with the four fantastic LBs. i was rooting for the bruins- it is no secret how i feel about lame and dad- and they won a game that was much closer than 38-28 showed. their TB is a first class human being and football player and wants to be mayor of LA, and it will happen. as i've told Mr. Woodcock, who is feeling prety good today i imagine, that many of my favoritest players have been bruins, and johnathan franklin is in the mix. now after a big game against USC, time to keep it going and beat the indians, for whom i have no love, and get the ducks in the conference title game if they can overcome the letdown and handle the beavers. stanford played an outstanding game and plays-run defense, run, pass, pass defense (the george allen order of importance)the way i like it, but they are still stanford. their coach is top tier, the team is solid- but they are still stanford.

Watching the Jets v Rams and it is nice to see some things never change. Jets just hit a field goal and Tony "Two Potatoes" was acting like he just won the Super Bowl. It's no surprise the JETS suck.


sporano gets a gusher every time his team scores a FG; TDs mean nothing to him, as the jets have decided that they are gonna score TDs only via special teams or their defense.


with all the talk of ibramovich's bicycle kick, i will still state the greatest goal in my opinion was giovanni dossantos against the gringos, the one where he pulled the ball away from tim howard and then placed it just uder the crossbar and just inside the goal post to get past the head of the american defender, who did all he could to try and stop an amazing effort. best i have seen live, don't know the history of every great goal; i would state that #2 was dennis bergkamp getting the diagonal from frankie de boer that traversed 1/2-3/4 of the field before bergkamp got past the argentineans and put the ball in the net- 98 WC, as i remember.

Eggzactly shadow. Couldn't help but smile yesterday watching the pain on Kiffins face. I think probation is finally hitting the Trojans.

Still not sure ND can beat even a weak USC but it they do it will be on the way to a beatdown in the championship game by Alabama.

FZB, Pau Gassol will almost certainly be traded before the Feb. 21 deadline. He is on the books for a chunk of bucks next year, and his game doesn't fit any version of Mike D'Antoni's style of play. Pau's importance (as a big guy in the middle) is also minimized by the improved play of Jordan Hill who is actually a better rebounder.

Anyone with a casual knowledge of this Laker team instantly knows that the team would be better served by having a smaller, running forward who likes to dunk. A 2012 version of James Worthy.

Tom, are your two sons still kicking your butt in golf?

OMG OC I wish they were. I can't walk now without severe pain. Having my hip replaced Dec 26th. Can't wait. Dr says I will be as good as new within a year which is about 30 strokes worse than the boys (25 on a good day).

You know what, shadow, I've never been much of a fan of NCAA FB, or particularly USC or UCLA. College BB and the Bruins perhaps more so, in so much as their players have had such a strong track record and success in the NBA. But if you had asked me a year ago about crimson red or blue/gold, I would have said - ehh.

Funny how when given a personal reason to care, a fan is born. btw, the new Pauley Pavilion is amazing.

Tom, thanks for the update. I know many people who have gone through that procedure and they were all surprised on how fast they came back strong, and pain free. Good luck my old friend (and I mean old in an Earl Morrall sort of way).

Thanks OC.

On the football front, anyone watching what is going on down in Jacksonville? The Jags are up 27-20 on the Texans and Chad Henne is 13-17 for 250 yds and 3 TDs. Could it be Henne's real problem was Sporano's offense?

Stating the obvious Notre Dame destiny doesn't count me as a fair weather Irish fan,,, so worry about the Canes & lack of future with the same Jethro. I used to watch Notre Dame Highlights with my pops back in the 70's after early Mass. Kind of ironic that they are having this great year months after my pops passed. Penn State is paying a heavy price & will be back. Not so sure about the U. LSU's fine, my adopted team of the SEC in a casual way. I attend LSU parties with coworkers that are HUGE Tiger fans--fun times. I'm not a dediated fan of college football compared to the NFL.

Tom, don't think Henne will ever turn the corner. Jags still found a way to blow the game. Hope your surgery goes well & is sucessfull.

Patriots are the best team in the NFL.

Thanks Jimbo. You're probably right. But Henne is not as bad as Gabbert.

I'm watching the Steelers and Ravens and I'm not sure what the Steelers uniforms remind me of. I was thinking an old time prison uniform for a chain gang. Then I thought maybe kids Bumblebee feety pajamas. Whatever it is they're hideous.

gUess who's about to bUry U ?


jacksonville was a game that was in the bag- until today when they found they could score. if henne comes back and leads a victory over a tough dolphin defense-OY VEY!!

It's too bad the Steelers were not comprised of Baumhower, Barnett, Blackwood, Bokamper, Blackwood, Bowser, Betters, and Brudzinski. The Killer "B's" would be much more appropriate with those unis.

So a lot of you guys are bashing our young QB (T-Hill), even today Armando has stupid article saying Tannehill is regressing yadayadayada.

and no one takes into consideration that our guy has no speed/talent to throw to at WR/TE, his OL is not protecting him like they were earlier in the year and that the same OL is not opening any holes for our backs to run through.

yesterday Matt Ryan threw 5 int's (they still won), Luck had four turnovers and Henne looked like the second coming of Joe Montana against the Texans !! (Blacmon had a terrific game), my point is look at the big picture, ALL QB's (rookies or vets) have good and bad games but you gotta have talent around you to help you.

Tannehill has none.

chill with your negativity towards the kid.


OC, your killer b's comment is "muy bueno" and muy funny"


Flacco didn't look good against the Steeler's last night, you guys are lucky big Ben didn't play..

on to the U and the NCAA,

I think they are waiting to see the result of next weeks game against the Dukies, if they win they will play in the ACC championship game, if they lose they will self impose.

just "mi opinion"

The fact Miami is even in the hunt for the ACC title game with 5, yes 5 losses, shows just how bad the ACC really is. Very sad. Miami is in deep crap and their recruiting is terrible. No one wants to go to this program. They are all fleeing for the SEC, Louisville, FSU, anywhere but Miami. It's going to be a long 10 years before Miami will even remotely be back. I would copy and paste those "young team" comments like you have been doing since the Shannon days and keep them coming for the next 10 years. You'll need it.

FZB stop it Tannehill hasn't been good this month Armando is just pointing out the obvious.

We can only hope that he stops the slide against Seattle this Sunday.


tannehill has had a very decent season for a rookie playing on a team that can't run the rock to save themselves. sure he has had a few not so great moments-like the ending on thursday night- but without a running game and without letting him roll out a bit more often the young man is being hampered greatly. davone bess made a couple of excellentino grabs, and who would have foreseen that tannehill>hartline would be an effective pitch and catch duo?

Mr. Woodcock,

k-state and oregon losing did not surprise me too much. baylor has a good, good offense and the slowness of k-state showed. stanford plays old-fashioned football- even though i hate the place as much as you loathe my alma mater- which is to my liking. UCLA has no reason to play anybody as they are locked in, while stanford needs a win to get into the title game and will have to use the big guns. stanford in the rose bowl-once since their back-to-back upsets of ohio state 27-17(jim plunkett at the helm) and michigan 13-12 (dr. don bunce) with the greatly underappreciated john ralston as coach. in the plunkett game ohio state was gassed at the end and stabford could have scored another 2-3 touchdowns had the game been 10 minutes longer. ohio state never saw an arm like plunkett's (20/30, 265) in practice or in the big-10. mike phipps was okay for purdue, but plunkett he wasn't; plus plunkett had bob moore at ate and randy vataha at FL, along with a ecent runner named hillary shockley (school president at LA High, our next door neighbor).


stanford's tight end, vataha at flanker. ralston was quotd as saying "i would never call the {rose bowl} win bigger than our victory over USC (24-14, 12 years of losing in a row to troy, and two extermely hard fought games in plunkett's sophomore and junior years that the indians lost).
