    Schadenfreude from dead dick programs doesn’t tend to be very exciting, but there was a time...a long time ago...that duh U had one of the most annoying/abrasive fan bases in all of sports. For those of us that remember that time, drink up...

    And since the 02 ‘Natty they are a 4 loss program. College football owes us a huge blowjob for snuffing those fart-huffers.

    You’re being generous.

    Since Jim Tressel took their balls in Tempe, 17 seasons now:

    132-82 (.618), 0 National Championships, 1 Conf Champ (2003, Big East), 4-9 Bowls, 1 Top Ten Finish (2003), 6 Top 25 Finishes, 11 Unranked Finishes (with this year, they will have finished the season unranked in 11 of the last 15 years)

    That averages out to 8-5 per season. They’re a FIVE loss program. The definition of mediocre.

    11 of 15 nationally unranked years is hardly a door-opener when recruiting outside of your region.

    Or in your region.

    I love how every Miami fan's reaction, is to just fire the coach and staff, as if that's going to wave a wand and make everything great.
    I've told a buddy of mine(Da U fan) for years, the same problem persists with Miami. They become great in a time and era when there was no internet and camps, and kids took pride in staying home in SoFLa playing for a 2nd rate program with average facilities. It was cool to party with 2 Live Crew, and be the bad boys. Thing is, once the web came around and kids started traveling more to camps at other campuses, they saw what they could have and utilize, and the networks they could form outside of SoFLa. Why stay home and play on a dilapidated field, in a HS weight room, playing for 10k fans, when you could play at bigger schools throughout the country, get out of the neighborhoods and away from the bad influences at home, and have some of the best facilities in college with the best nutrition, and play in front of 80,000-100,000k screaming weekly. Firing Manny after 1 or 2 seasons, sets them back as a program even more, because it's just a rinse and repeat cycle. Bomani Jones made a great point on his podcast, the Miami former football players want the team great more than the University of Miami program does. And that's the biggest difference between them and say an OSU, Alabama, Lsu, Oklahoma, etc. And that will always be their downfall and constantly keep them average to sometimes above average

    The few remaining Miami fans suffer from some form of Stockholm syndrome which keeps them in a weird state of false hope for the future

    Miami has the attraction of South Beach and strip bars and money men. Still does. But kids saw Da U as a pipeline to the NFL via national exposure and national championships and NFL scouts and agents with $ surrounding the place like flies on crap. When being a Cane is no longer an asset to getting to the pros, all you have left are shitty fans, shitty facilities, and a less than shitty chance to display your talents.

    These kids know what they want. They want the NFL. And Miami is not the place to provide that.

    pnuts34 nailed it.
