UM signee again blasts 'grimy, two-faced and disrespectful' UF coaches

(Yeah, this will end well in the comments section.)

As a talented football player at Gainesville High School, it would stand to reason that Florida would’ve had a big advantage in landing linebacker Kevin Nelson.

When Nelson opted instead to give a verbal to in-state rival Miami, the 2010 recruit was the subject of verbal needling from the UF faithful in the area.  And, according to Nelson — stressing “according to Nelson” — some allegedly shoddy treatment from the hometown college football program as well.

Speaking to the Miami Herald, Nelson — who by then had given a verbal commitment to the ‘Canes — said he attended a Florida home game in 2009 with other recruits but, after the game, was the only one not allowed in the locker room by UF coaches.  Even though, Nelson said, then-LB Brandon Spikes invited him.

Grimy, two-faced and disrespectful,” Nelson was quoted as saying of the Gator coaches by the Herald.

This is the second time Nelson has levied a “grimy, two-faced” blast at the program and its coaches, with the first coming in the immediate aftermath of that November game.

Nelson also stated that some of the UF defensive coaches attempted to talk him out of his commitment to Miami, telling him that “Miami hasn’t won any ACC championships since going to the ACC and that Randy Shannon is going to leave after this year, and that I might not get any playing time.”

First of all, and taking his comments at face value, this just seemingly confirms what’s been rumored all along: rival coaches were using Shannon’s contract status against the Hurricanes on the recruiting trail.  Although Shannon received his well-deserved extension earlier this offseason, shame on the university for allowing his contract situation to linger as long as it did and possibly have an impact on UM’s 2010 recruiting class.

Secondly, if Nelson thought he was taking some abuse before, what does he think is going to happen when he goes back to Gainesville now after blasting the staff with some pretty derogatory words?

Ear muffs, my man.  Ear muffs.

Oh, and Miami and Florida are next scheduled to take the field on September 7, 2013.  That would be Nelson’s senior season — or redshirt junior season, depending on how things play out — and, needless to say, he’s already counting down the days until game time.

“I can’t wait to play them suckers, for real,” Nelson said back in November. “I know it’s a long time from now. I just can’t wait ’till we play these suckers. They are just disrespectful.”

    miami blows, everyone hates shannon, GO GATORS

    You GAYtor fans really have no clue. Your coaching staff has been using shoddy recruiting tactics ever since Urban Liar arrived. Your school has NEVER gone undefeated. You’ve backed in to all 3 of your titles when any number of teams could of gone in. I credit the SEC for that, cause it is actually a great conference. You cant hold a candle to what the U has done and will continue to do from this year on out. We get Championships taken away ( 2000 left out of the title game, FSU went instead even though we beat them, and 2002 vs. OSU with the late flag that was right up there with that ump who blew the perfect game the other day ) or we earn them outright by going unbeaten. Your 15 minutes are up, now its back to your regular scheduled program…THAT U!!!

  6. FrankReynolds says: Jun 9, 2010 3:21 PM

    hahahahahaha “You cant hold a candle to what the U has done and will continue to do”
    we’ll see about that sore loser. you don’t think every team uses shoddy recruiting tactics? shannon would give his left nut for our recruiting class and trust me he’d do whatever it took to get it. and we’re still going to beat the tar out of the has-been canes.

  7. rosco pico cane says: Jun 9, 2010 3:47 PM

    Thanks coach… our 2008 recruiting class will nut on your recent one. They’ll be Juniors and redshirt sophomores this upcoming year and tearing it up. ” Sore loser”..yeah im really sore that our team stacked with true freshman took you guys into the 4th qtr down by 6 in ’08. Before that game we’ve been spanking the ish out of you for years to the point you guys had to take us off your schedule…LOL…Anyways my work here is done…I hope you guys can make it to the NC this year where we will be waiting. We can continue the war of words then.

  8. gator_prof says: Jun 9, 2010 4:47 PM

    rosco pico cane,
    Just a few questions regarding your posts…
    Question: How many national titles has UF won since UM’s last appearance in a BCS game?
    Question: Should you be talking any smack when the last headline that your team made was brawling with FIU?
    Question: When will you win your first ACC title?
    Question: Why did you guys suddenly fall apart when you joined a real conference?
    Question: Are you proud that your last 3 bowl appearances are “Champs Sports Bowl”, “Emerald Bowl”, and “MCP Computers Bowl”?
    Question: Did joining a real conference actually put constraints on your exclusive recruiting program with the Dade County Correctional facility?
    Assuming that you are not the typical belligerently stupid Canes fan, a consideration of the above questions should quiet you until your team actually does something.

  9. Prometheus says: Jun 9, 2010 5:40 PM

    Hey gator_prof,
    I’ll respond to each of your questions and pose one of my own. Unlike you, I won’t embarrass myself with glittering generalities about the intelligence of my rivals’ fan base. As an alleged professor, you should be aware of the most recent US News & World Report rankings which have both of our schools in the first tier. That should suffice to end the childish banter. Now, as for the specifics…
    Question 1 reply: 2, subject to the caveats aptly stated by other posters. 1-loss NCs are considerably more controversial than undefeated ones, and I concede this even applies to our 1-loss NCs.
    Question 1 rejoinder: Does it make you uncomfortable to have to arbitrarily restrict the time periods of NC comparison, in order to make your team have more NCs than ours?
    Question 2 reply: Yes, since the most recent headline for our football team was actually this one: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/05/14/1628730/academic-honor-for-um-football.html
    Headline: “Academic honor for UM football program”
    Content summary: “The football program was recognized as having posted a multiyear Academic Progress Report score in the top 10 percent. Miami was the only Bowl Championship Subdivision team among the 26 schools recognized that finished ranked in the final USA Today Coaches Poll and Associated Press poll after the 2009 season. UM and Duke were the only two Atlantic Coast Conference football programs recognized.”
    Question 2 rejoinder: Can you please submit for me the arrest record for the University of Florida football team over the Urban Meyer era?
    Question 3: This year.
    Question 3 rejoinder: When will the University of Florida man up and schedule the Hurricanes as a regular opponent?
    Question 4: Because we had Larry Coker as a coach and head recruiter. See what happens this year with Randy Shannon’s players reaching maturity. You saw what they did as freshman at the Swamp, taking your NC squad into the 4th quarter only down 6.
    Question 4 rejoinder: Are you scared to play the Canes regularly, or just lazy?
    Question 5: No, which is obviously why we, like you, demand NCs. Stupid question.
    Question 5 rejoinder: Do you wish that ESPN 30-for-30 would make a documentary about your team’s greatness, and then have said documentary be the highest rating in the history of such programming?
    Question 6 answer: Phenomenally stupid question, not worthy of a response.
    Question 6 rejoinder: Are you embarrassed that while you make such asinine hypotheticals, your team has 24 arrests under the Urban Meyer era, which is 2400% of the UM arrest rate under Randy Shannon (1)?

    It’s very interesting your position on the current state of Miami football. You speak of the virtuous manner in which the program is now run under Shannon. Notwithstanding the fact that they have taken a huge step backward in their football program.
    So I take it then, by your comments, that you were embarrassed by the way the program was run in the past when they had the reputation of being a renegade program? Even though the football team was one of the best in the nation year in year out for well over a decade.
    You can’t have it both ways!
    Well, I guess I’ll just pull out the same excuse or excuses you guys used to use.
    1.You just jealous, and wish you were a football power like us!!
    2. Who cares about academics or how we act on the field, we’re just expressing ourselves.
    3. Yes, we’re classeless but NC’s.
    4. You would trade places with us in a heartbeat and it’s just sour grapes.
    Take your pick….anyone of them works for me…
    One more thing about your comments: “It helped us more than you will ever know.”
    LOL….

    Gatorfan1:
    Since i don’t expect you to know much about anything due to the fact that your living in your parents double-wide, let me refresh your memory…. The U is a football POWERHOUSE and will never want to trade places with UF….Did you not realize we just played the strongest schedule in the country and fared very well (9-4, i believe thats the same as UF’s record was just 2 years ago) considering our starting lineup was filled with Sophomores and a few Juniors sprinkled in that Randy managed to sign last minute after Coker was fired….Do you realize that we’ve been in this situation before (’95-’99 probation years) only to bounce back and dominate college football for 3 years in a row before Coker had to go out and actually recruit his own players that eventually led us to where we are now….Which is back on the national scene…Coker’s mess has officially been cleaned up…And not that pre-season rankings mean anything but Miami is in the top 10 in most if not all of them and the last one i saw which is Phil Steele’s rankings, he has the U at #4…So trade places no sorry, i think its the other way around…Now go outside and rake the leaves before your parents throw u out the trailer!

  12. Gatorfan1 says: Jun 10, 2010 2:04 PM

    rosco pico cane:
    Sorry, unlike you I’m not trailer trash. Obviously I hit a raw nerve with that response.
    First off, you had Butch Davis as a coach & recruiter to bring you back from the probation years. Shannon is no Davis. And if you think he is, you are TRULY are delusional.
    Maybe you should pay more attention to your own team’s blogs and articles in the Miami papers. It seams most people know how bad Shannon is. That’s all they write about, he sucks and should be replaced. Never remember that much negativity towards Davis in his first couple of years.
    Miami is now an also-ran in college football, get used to it. Regardless of what you try to say, they are at best a mediocre program that will be measured now as having great seasons at 9-5 and going to the cream puff bowl every year!!
    Your recruiting class stunk last year. There is only 1 player that Florida would have even considered offering a scholorship to. Their ranking is purely because of numbers. But no matter how you measure it, pure numbers of crap = crap.
    But you go ahead & keep having faith that Shannon is the guy who will take a BUNCH of 3* athletes and turn them into a….oh yeah…a POWERHOUSE again….LMAO….

    Nice perversion of logic. You are absolutely wrong. Randy’s resurrection of the UMiami football program has included character building, recruiting improvements, AND on-field success. That is why under the three years of his reign, we have gone from 5 wins (at the depth of the Coker talent drought) to 7 to 9 last year, and poised to make a top 10 (or at least top-15) debut starting this season,. I thought that a top school like UF would teach you that 5

    Re: “. The U is a football POWERHOUSE”
    Note, “is” denote the present tense, so I assume “powerhouse” is commensurate with bowl appearances in “Champs Sports Bowl”, “Emerald Bowl”, and “MCP Computers Bowl”?
    Wake me up when you guys win the conference and get to a BCS game.
    Prometheus,
    I wasn’t restricting anything, just commenting on current sad state of your once powerful program.
    Since we are talking about arrest records, it is only fair to bring up the U’s past and note the correlation with ‘success’.

  15. Prometheus says: Jun 10, 2010 2:47 PM

    gator_prof:
    You can’t really be a professor with that kind of shoddy reasoning. Maybe you teach women’s studies or something.
    First of all, we won an NC in 2001 (and had one stolen in 2002) with a team much cleaner than Urban’s recent vintages. And when we win the ACC this year, and the NC next, we’ll do it with one even cleaner than that. You should consider those facts before you pop off with your garbage.
    Second, you WERE restricting the time periods, by asking “how many titles has UF won since Miami last reached a BCS title game”? Since apparently you need it, I should relay that the definition of “restrict” is to “limit something, especially to a particular time, place or group of people.” Dare you still protest that you didn’t limit your question to a particular time?
    If you’re still not getting it, let me rephrase your question. How many titles has UM won since UF discontinued the regular season meetings between the two schools? That restriction doesn’t work out as well for your comparisons, does it?
    Third, sad state? In addition to a strong trend of improvement year-over-year, in addition to the academic recognition I already posted, we’re already top-ten preseason from one of the top college football analysts around. http://philsteele.com/ (Fortunately for us, we have a schedule that will put us into the thick of the BCS race once we start playing. That’s why we, unlike UF, cherish true competition.) Looks like the future’s pretty bright. You’re like the typewriter manufacturers circa 1990, seeing no competition from the fledgling personal computer market. Your numbers might still be slightly ahead, but the trend is about to sweep you off your feet…
    AND we can do it without delinquents, AND while overtaking you in the academic rankings! Get ready for your wakeup call, son. Boy, it’s a great time to be a ‘Cane…

    Gatorfan1:
    I’ll be the first to admit that the U has plenty of bandwagon fans which are the ones you’ll see on those miami blogs calling for Randy’s head cause they dont have a clue of what this guy is building. And yes he can recruit just as good or better than Butch. I on the other hand am a true Cane fan and haven’t missed a home game since ’84 and i know exactly whats happening in Coral Gables as you and the rest of the country will soon find out.
    By the way its nice to know that your taking time out to check up on my Miami blogs and articles. Now thats funny!!

    Going through life an idiot is nothing to be proud of son.
    In one of your previous post you state the following:
    Question 2 rejoinder: Can you please submit for me the arrest record for the University of Florida football team over the Urban Meyer era?
    Question 6 rejoinder: Are you embarrassed that while you make such asinine hypotheticals, your team has 24 arrests under the Urban Meyer era, which is 2400% of the UM arrest rate under Randy Shannon (1)?
    This pales in comparison to the Miami scandals of the 90’s.
    For you to feel that Florida under Meyer runs an unscrupulous program than logically, and yes I know, this is the part that someone who’s an idiot like you will have problems with; that is why I said you can’t have it both ways. You can’t embrace a past and then criticize a school who you believe have similiar problems now!
    Geesh, listen the way to stop being a dumbass is to continuosly read. If you do, comprehension & logic become easier!!!
    So yes you did make the comments and LOGICALLY you seem to be distancing yourself from the program’s past.
    That’s OK and noble, just know you will never be at that football level again. And I’m sure if you could you would trade everything Shannon has done to be the program you used to be!! Your posts now are nothing but loser self-serving comments to make yourself feel better about DA U’s demise….sad really….

  18. Prometheus says: Jun 10, 2010 5:25 PM

    “Going through life an idiot is nothing to be proud of son.”
    I wouldn’t know about that. I do know I’m not an idiot. I would also hazard a guess that I’ve achieved much more than you have at my age. (I’m guessing you’re older – your aggressive ad hominem vitriol is common among either teenagers or middle aged men for whom life has passed them by, but I’m just playing the percentages here.) I’d also guess my intellectual power is greater than yours, not least because I don’t go around calling people idiots I’ve ever met, and everything I’ve ever read told me that such personal attacks are poor logical, ethical, and personal form.
    I’d prefer we keep this to sports, but if you can’t help but resort to personal insults to people you’ve never seen, met, or know anything about, I will deal with your limitations.
    Nevertheless…
    “In one of your previous post you state the following:

    As I have explained and will explain, I am proud of our successes. I am proud that we were so good in the 1980s that UF had to cancel our matchup. I am proud that we have won 5 NCs and are the #1 NFL pipeline. Most of all, I am proud that we are doing it the RIGHT WAY, and that our last NC (should be the last 2) came after we had cleaned up, eviscerating your arguments.
    Anyone nowadays can win while bending the rules, just look at USC. The true test of a program is what it does when it plays by all the rules. We have proven that we can win, and have won – clean. Florida has not, and that’s the point we’re trying to get across.
    “Geesh, listen the way to stop being a dumbass is to continuosly read. If you do, comprehension & logic become easier!!!”
    Well, I don’t really want to get into a pissing contest with you, but I scored 100% on the reading comprehension section of the LSAT, and a 790 on the verbal portion of the GRE. We can talk about the books I’ve written too, but we’ll just start with objective and standardized measures to obliterate your point.
    “So yes you did make the comments and LOGICALLY you seem to be distancing yourself from the program’s past.”
    Let me lay this out for you. I am proud that we can win football games while graduating players and not getting arrested. This, as I mentioned, is part of the evolution of the U. We once were like you, where we needed to cut corners and enroll thugs to win. But we’ve evolved beyond that, and I am extremely proud of both our past and our present. We made mistakes, but we rectified them. I’m sorry this is so difficult for you to understand.
    I’ll give you an analogy. I love the United States, despite our terrible history of slavery and segregation. I am proud the way we’ve evolved and rectified our mistakes and continued to prosper. I view the University of Miami similarly.
    “That’s OK and noble, just know you will never be at that football level again.”
    WOW. As much as I think UF football’s best days are behind it, I would never be foolish enough to predict something like that. Even to USC. Neither should you.
    A little history lesson for you. If Miami can field the best team in the MODERN HISTORY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL (according to ESPN, referring to our 2001 team) and do it CLEAN, and POST-SANCTIONS, proves to me that writing us off would be very, very, VERY stupid. What do you think?
    “And I’m sure if you could you would trade everything Shannon has done to be the program you used to be!!”
    Absolutely false. If that were true, why would I post with pride the academic recognition that Coach Shannon’s leadership has brought us? For all your talk about reading comprehension, you certainly struggle with it mightily yourself…
    “Your posts now are nothing but loser self-serving comments to make yourself feel better about DA U’s demise….sad really….”
    I guess I have to teach you, as well as gator_prof, that nine is greater than seven which is greater than five. (Perhaps the numerals scared you, and so the numbers spelled out will work better for a reading comprehension expert such as yourself.) That is not a demise, that is what statisticians call a positive trend. Kind of like the positive trend in the late 1990s which preceded our most recent national championships.
    The U is back, and we’re doing it clean, all while augmenting the academic prestige of our institution. We’ve gone from sanctions to championships, from talent droughts to young resurgence, and we’re currently a top-10-to-15 team on the rise. That’s what I’m proud of, and I beseech you to read my points well before you mouth off and embarrass yourself.

  19. gator_prof says: Jun 10, 2010 5:29 PM

    Cane fans,
    There is no reasoning here. There is no BS chatting about “could have been” or “preseason rankings”.
    I just need to state the following facts,
    1) Your last title was in 01. UF has two since.
    2) You haven’t won a ACC title yet.
    3) Your last 3 bowls have been Champs Sports Bowl”, “Emerald Bowl”, and “MCP Computers Bowl”.
    4) Shannon hasn’t won a bowl game yet.
    No one on the planet has the U as a better program than the Gators right now. No one.
    Honestly, I admire what Shannon has done in that cesspool, but you aren’t ready for prime time yet.

    Wow, all that writing AND and the only person you can convince that you are smarter than me, is yourself.
    Anytime you want to measure your success against mine, give it a shot. I’m sure you’ll figure out a way, since you are a self-proclaimed scholar and all!!
    Unlike you I’m comfortible enough not have to bring up all my scholastic achievements. Suffice to say, I do fairly well for myself and am pretty well educated. But I’m sure I can’t be as successful as you because let’s face it….on this blog even a pompous individual like youself can pretty much pretend to be anyone….even pretending to be a great success (you).
    And on your percentages…don’t play lotto anytime soon…your wrong.
    The bottom line is your twisting in the wind…and all the talking and bloviating isn’t going to change the fact that you tried excoriating us for the same type of behavior your school used to have, while embracing that very same behavior & attitude. The fact is that your trying to back away from the statement and of course it’s too late & you can’t. So you post some feable attempt to try and pump yourself up to be something your obviously not. If you were you wouldn’t have to try and prove it on some football blog. And another thing, FYI, it doesn’t sway people that your point is more valid, it just reinforces the fact that you are insecure as to who you really are. But listen your not alone, a lot of annonymous people on blogs do as you do thinking it makes their point more interesting & valid!! It isn’t working for you now and never does.
    Now concerning your team, they stink and will continue to be mediocre no matter how you wish it not to be so.
    There is absolutely nothing Shannon has done to make ANYONE believe that Miami will ever be relevant again. But listen, you will have your opportunity to prove me wrong. Just make sure you show up on this blog after next season.
    If you want to cannonize your coach, even though you would throw him to the curb in a heartbeat to be the power you used to be, that’s your business! But your playing the fool for everyone on this blog.
    Hell, even Mussolini did something right, he made the trains run on time. I guess there’s hope for Shannon yet.

  21. MichaelnTX says: Jun 10, 2010 7:52 PM

    Miami very well may be on the upswing. It is a given that they had to clean up the mess left by Coker. Whatever Shannon does will be infinitely better than Coker did. It is a shame for the Miami fans that Shannon did not follow Butch Davis. Davis left them in great shape and Shannon could have built upon that success rather than having to rebuild from less than scratch.
    That said… the University of Florida has proven themselves to be the team to beat. When you consistently play at the level they have for the past few years you are in an elite group. For now, and the past few years, this is a group that has not included Miami. Time will tell what will happen next, but one would be a fool to pick Miami over Florida until Florida shows that they can walk the walk.
    There are three teams that, to me, define the cream of the college football crop. They should be easy enough for any college football fan to recognize, and hard to argue against: Hook ‘em Horns! Roll Tide! Go Gators!

    I have been going to Gator games since 1980, so here are a few observations:
    * Miami definitely benefited from not playing in a real conference and the ability to accept players that had academic or other issues throughout the 80’s and 90’s.
    * Some incredible teams with incredible talent were assembled and won five national championships. That 2001 team was one of the most talented forever.
    * The only sellouts at the Orange Bowl were due to the visiting team fans outnumbering the UM fans.
    * In spite of the talent, history and championships none of the coaches stayed. Schnellenberger actually left to go to Louisville of all places.
    * Shannon was a great selection due to his allegiance to UM. I admire his efforts to “do the right thing” and clean-up the long tarnished image of UM.
    * When the SEC expanded, UF had to choose between keeping FSU or UM on the schedule and there was no question who was more important to keep on the schedule. Ask any Gator fan.
    * While most teams would benefit from joining a conference, UM has definitely gone down hill. I checked and since joining the ACC UM has only won 3 championships in any sport which is second worse behind BC. By comparison, UVA has 27 and FSU 21.
    * Just this year, UF won 7 SEC titles and 2 National Championships.
    * The reality is in today’s world of additional oversight, media surveliance and conference competition, UM cannot compete in the ACC let alone the NCAA.
    * Only a Cane would be proud of the ESPN 30 for 30 program that detailed the thuggery and lack of control exhibited by the team. Before disagreeing, go back and watch the show and think about your children acting that way.
    * Similar thoughts for the former players who supported the swinging of helmets during the brawl with FIU.
    Good luck and feel great that with 32 bowls there should always be room for a 6-6 team providing the bowls are willing to only sell 5,000 tickets to the fans of the mighty U. San Francisco is a great city to visit any time of year…

    The U fan – for one, you didn’t get a title taken from you in 2002 – you LOST the game. Deal with it! Whether you want to whine about the call or not – the fact is, you’re unstoppable offense had the ball 1st and goal at the 1 yard line and couldn’t score on 4 attempts. We crushed Dorsey so hard that he threw up on the bus and had to be taken to the hospital. We totally shut down Willis as well. You were 11 point favorites and you got your asses kicked all game long. Stop freakin whining about it! We got our asses kicked by UF in the NC – so what! At least we aren’t still sitting around pissing and moaning about it. I can’t wait to get you in the Shoe this year as well so we can start kicking your ass where we left off. God I’ve never met a group of fans that whine as much as you Canes fans do.

    Good thing they play at your place, or your team would think they were at practice….lol…

    Gator – agreed!!! I went to both NC Fiesta Bowl games given that it was in my backyard. About 5,000 Canes fans showed up – it was like a home game for us. At the OSU / Gator game – it was 50/50 and was quite spirited in the stands. Sadly, we did not show up for that game on the field so it was obviously much louder on your side about 1/2 way through the 2nd quarter. But to your point – the fans at these two great universities are rabid, travel, and support their teams regardless!!!

    @Gatorfan1
    First of all, UF has had 30 arrest in during Meyers stay. That is over DOUBLE the amout of UM’s arrest in ALL the 90’s…in 4 years.
    Infact, at NO TIME in UM’s history have we had the troubles UF is having now.
    @ Gator_proof
    Hahaha…I know it kills you that even with all UFs recent success you still haven’t done nearly as much as UM.
    UM 5 NCs, UF 3
    UM leads all time series
    UM 4 UNDEFEATED SEASONS, UF none.
    UM Ncaa record 58 home game winning streak…double Uf’s streak
    UM NCAA records 6 first rounders in top 20 picks. Breaking old UM record of 5.
    UM record 20 first rounders in 4 years
    UM #2 and #6 ALL-TIME top 10 CF teams…UF, not on the list.
    More HOFers.
    More pro-bowlers
    More people in the NFL
    Better people in the NFL
    The ONLY record UF seems to out number UM is in arrest record. And you are way ahead there. lol UF was #3 in the Fulmer cup which goes to the dirties/thugged out school.
    UFs fans were even voted top 10 most obnxious in the nation. Miami fans were not on the list.
    And if you think Miami is a “cesspool”…lol…you must not be aware of the booming tourism here and the lack of tourist in Gunsville. Miami is one of the worlds hottest tourist destinations…..Gainesville?….not so much.
    Your own HC even threatens to beat people up….ON camera. lol LMFAO.

    @SGator
    – Miami played harder schedules than UF every year. Infact, we had teams like UF back out of playing us cause your school is full of cowards.
    – Schnellenbeger went to coach in the USFL, not UL. If you are gonna talk crap, atleast know a little on the topic you are lying about.
    – UMs decline had NOTHING to do with the ACC. It was a result of Coker’s soft approach to coaching and bad recruiting.
    – No UM fan cares what UF fans think. You think we are in decline? Hahahaha….who cares. The fact is, UM has actually been trending upward. UF,…on a downward trend. Now NO MORE Tebow….hahaha…I am going to enjoy watching UFelony lose 4 to 5 games this year.
