Ah, a break from the coaching carousel for an off-the-field issue. How refreshing.

Unless you’re Miami coach Al Golden, who has had more drama at UM than he’s cared for lately. Now, he’s got another issue on his hands. Per the Coral Gables police, cornerback Thomas Finnie was arrested Tuesday for theft of a laptop. Here’s the┬árelease from the┬ápolice department to the Miami Herald:

“After further investigation by detectives with the University of Miami Police, it was determined that Thomas Finnie, a University of Miami student, was involved in the theft of the laptop computer from a dorm room on campus. Thomas Finnie was arrested today, December 11, 2012, and has been charged with Occupied Burglary and Grand Theft. He has been transported to the Dade County Jail by University of Miami Police personnel.”

Finnie has been suspended indefinitely from the team while his legal situation runs its course. He played in 12 games in 2012 and started six, recording 30 tackles, three pass breakups and one fumble recovery.

    Nice job you dumb ass kid. Al Golden is trying to turn that program around and you have the nerve to do something soooo stupid. What an ass. Hope he gets jail time and learns a lesson.

    While UM Police have been turning their heads for years, this particular act was too egregious and he was cuffed. It’s all smoke and mirrors at that rudderless football program, except of course the SUCK part.

    But U do have a whopping 11 recruits in place. Stole a kid from Buffalo just yesterday. Lemme guess? A storm is brewing? Yeah, a shit storm called the NCAA camped out in your compliance office for the last year and a half. Goldenfraude has told recruits in the last week that he’s expecting the NCAA to notify “in the next couple of days.” You aren’t lying to recruits are ya Goldy? That pee wee guy already implicated you in recruiting violations. That hole place, if it can get any worse, is about to just implode. “But Golden..blah blah blah…” Shut it cane fools. You’re about to get tooled in the brown star….dry.

    This is incredible…I just cannot believe this! A scholar/athlete, hand-picked by Donna “Shay-lala” has STOLEN A LAPTOP from a fellow student! He must think he’s Cam Newton. This is exactly what I mean: some kids just are not meant to be in college. Doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor. Character and integrity COUNT!

    Lotsa anti-Miami trolling going on here and im a Gator fan lol.
    @gamecocker
    Donna Shalala does not recruit football students. She is the president of the university

    IT’S ALL ABOUT THE UUUUUUUU!!! It’s a shame that a solid coach like Golden who thought going to Miami was a jump up is now actually running a team of way word criminals. But hey, all you had to do was watch 30 for 30 to tell yah what kind of rep that school has. By the way, did any of the guilty so called pro’s fess up to the bad behavior they had involving boosters or are they back dooring the school that gave them so much?!?! Go Canes…more like cocaine!!!
