As I watched the PATHETIC preformance of the Canes basketball team last nite I realized what a sad state The U has become.It seems to permeate from the fan base to the student body right down to the athletic department.When I was a student at UM in the 80's anything less than a National Champinchip was UNACCEPTABLE and considered a failure!! That is why I went to almost 8 years of home games in the Orange Bowl without ever enduring a single loss.Or why we won 5 National Champoinchips in 18 years,(4 in 8 years),more than any other school in the modern era.And I promise you if any of those teams had a season like the U basketball team had this year and was 4 wins from a championchip and played like last nite they would be to embarressed to even show their faces back on campus in Coral Gables. It seems eveyone wants to pat them on the back,for just making the Sweet 16 and that is PITIFUL!!!! The U now seems to be on the road to mediocrity. We have 7-4 football seasons and we're happy just to go to some second teir bowl game.Since we've joined the ACC we have not won or even competed for a single championchip game PATHETIC!!! Rest assured Jimmy Johnson
,Micheal Irvin.Warren Sapp,Ray Lewis,Ed Reed,Jeremy Shcokey and so many others NEVER settled for anything less than a ring!! What they accomplished at The U prepared them for their future success later in life.It's not about getting there it's about WINNING!! It's like the parents that give their child a trophy just for showing up and then they can't understand why that same child is still living under their roof at 30!!Whats worse is the alumni association calling me 5 times a year asking for donations,I'll tell you what when you put together teams that win championchips and recruit like FSU and Gainesville do to compete and at least be in the conversation Every Year for a national title then call me until then "No soup for you!!! CANE Nation have some pride and dignity like the ones who went before you Because the University of Miami is a national joke. U better get your head out of your asses because only U that can make the change and bring back what it truly means to be a CANE!! Sadly though now it's all about U!!! "
