BLS: ..I agree Joe. “The Butcher” belongs at The U !

    Joe OviesLocal Raleigh Sports Radio guy – Joe Ovies – is from Miami and lived the glory days of “The U” …. he was in The OB enjoying the swagger, the stylin’ and the profilin’ of Michael Irvin, Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis, Gino Torreta, even “The Rock” etc etc and the camo gear in Arizona, all that “We’re The F’in U” crap.  OK, I’m not sure Gino ever profiled.

    Joe understands that “The U” was a different sorta place than the various pretend “Harvards of The _____” where great pains are gone to to pretend their gridiron gangstas are “student-athletes”.   The U knew what its Football was…. enjoyed the hell out of it…. and relished that it scared the bejebbers out of High Falutin’ Academia across America.  Up Yours, Snoots!

    To restore “that” aura …. that whole “in yo face” thang, Joe says “The U” should:

    ButchBack

    Before you get all wiggly and but but but but BobLee.… understand Joe’s point.

    The Butcher got in trouble at UNCCH by trying to install The U Culture at a “Harvard of The South” wannabee.

    He recruited the same type of “youngsters” he recruited to The U.   Marvin Austin was the next generation of Warren Sapp Greg Little (actually a Bunting recruit, I think) was “a Michael Irvin”.

    “The Scheme” had been in place at UNC looong before Butch arrived in Chapel Hill.  He didn’t know about it or care about it.  It was “a basketball thing”.   At The U he was never concerned with “academics” or “eligibility majors”.   He disguised FB recruits as Swimmers and no one said a word.

    ‘Canes Football was The Show in Coral Gables and BMFD was The Ringmaster.  John Blake’s “Black Santa” routine would have been all the rage at Killian High or St Thomas Aquinas, all across the mangrove swamps and the (very) mean streets of Liberty City.

    Wonder if Butch still has his little notebook with the contact info for every parole officer and DEA agent south of Orlando?  Won’t be that hard to update it.

    You’re thinking….  What about the sacrosanct “image” of The ACC?  You mean The ACC with Louisville and a certain ever-lasting TGU?  THAT ACC? …. Bwahahaha.

    I’ve always said this about The UNC BOT3’s Three Stooges-esque hiring of Butch…..

    Those Fat Cat Jock-sniffers were so braggin’ rights-obsessed and blown away by his rings and the whole BMFD thing, they never asked “the questions”… or tried to explain that “Carolina Way” silliness.

    BD just assumed he could operate as he always had at Miami and he did – until Marvin hit SEND…. and suddenly:

    Holy Freakin’ Choo Choo!  What has happened “amid our sacred pines” !!

    So, I agree with Joe.   The Butcher going back to The U would be:

    A perfect reunion for their “Just Win, Butch” fanbase and for “How Butch Does It”.

    PS:  One word of advice to Joe and ‘Canes’ fans.  If Butch ever says:  “I love it here.  I’ll never leave.” …. LOOK OUT!  That’ll mean Jimma Sexton has him headed to “one more big payday” somewhere.

    Hire Davis and make Miami great again

    The Miami Hurricanes are unique.

    Its tradition is based on this characteristic. The Canes were a new money family living in an old money neighborhood. Miami was national when college football was still largely regional. The sell for recruits was never about a packed home stadium, modern facilities or the quaint trappings of college life. The Hurricanes were built around the culture of players, not the cult of the coach. The program is supposed to traffic in swagger and the allure of future NFL success, bringing in players who want to be part of a deep crew that obnoxiously refers to itself as “The U.”

    Comparing and contrasting the Miami coaching job with other college vacancies is an exercise in missing the point.

    In the last 10 years, the university administration in Coral Gables consciously uncoupled themselves from their established identity and tried to be like everyone else. It’s a complicated path to how Miami got to this point, including a murder and a booster run amok, but it’s not a coincidence that success has eluded the Hurricanes ever since.

    Al Golden was fired by Miami Saturday after a demoralizing 58-0 loss to Clemson. He was a respected enough in football circles for his success at Temple and most understood the unenviable task of trying to build under the cloud of NCAA investigation, but plenty of folks around South Florida never really thought he fit with the program. However, the Hurricanes never lacked for talent (even though they missed on guys like Dalvin Cook and Amari Cooper), and they still couldn’t muster a single signature win under Golden.

    Bottom line: it was time for Miami to go in a different direction. And going forward, it would behoove the Hurricanes tap their past.

    Bring back Butch Davis.Butch Davis

    The former Miami head coach clearly wants the job. Davis told 790 The Ticket he’d “love to be considered” and explained to SiriusXM College Sports Nation he “would very much like to be a potential candidate for that job.” For Davis, who openly lamented leaving the Hurricanes for a failed NFL stint in Cleveland in ESPN’s “30 For 30” documentary about Miami, it’s an opportunity to patch the ill feelings surrounding his departure and redeem his exit from North Carolina.

    Davis understands Miami’s player culture and identity better than another other candidate. His ability to discover talent is unquestioned, just look at the teams he built at the turn of the century.

    Does Davis have some baggage? Of course, but it’s beyond time to either get over this stuff or understand the full context of what went down in Chapel Hill.

    By all means, rip Davis for knowing full well what he was getting into when he hired John Blake. However, North Carolina’s current academic scandal was well established before Davis took over the Tar Heels. He’s barely namechecked in two NCAA investigations and was ultimately cleared in internal investigations by former Gov. Jim Martin and Kenneth Wainstein.

    Miami really doesn’t need to over-think the situation. Davis made the Hurricanes great once before. He should be given the chance to do it again.

      Players and coaches. It’s interesting that BD seems locked in ESPN purgatory and blackballed out of head coaching jobs while others with as much or more baggage are still being hired, fired, rehired in the HBC game of musical chairs. It just seems odd and perhaps not a coincidence. Maybe there’s a scorned BD boogey man/woman undermining things. I also used to tell people there are a few places – Clemson, Blacksburg, Starkville – to name a few – that if a 5 Star recruit signs on at, the NCAA should just go ahead and put the school on probation with no further need to investigate. A player choosing South Beach, I get. Notre Dame, Alabama, even on occasion Raleigh or Chapel Hill, sure no problem. I’ve since seen the error of my thinking but have to admit that the thought still remains stuck in the back of my mind every time it happens. I’ll put it this way. If ECU, NCSU, UNC-CH or similar less traditional FB schools suddenly start signing a bevy of 5 star recruits on national signing day, the fan bases should brace themselves for a bad storm.

        I don’t know that BD has been a serious candidate for any gigs worthy of his being interested. Miami is unique for him. Bill Pearl got rehired as soon as his “show cause” expired. … Also BD was getting paid “for not working” by UNC for four years. …. If a Muddle Middle program suddenly starts getting attention from more than just a few Top 25-50 recruits SOMETHING is going on. Ol Miss was the latest to pop out of nowhere to get a bunch of Top Recruits. Fringe programs like Memphis, Houston, Fresno St, Boise etc are always coming and going in the Top 25. A Hot Shot coach comes in… wins Quick …. then moves up the ladder to a Power Five and the program drops back.

      Talk in Georgia, where Mark Richt is liked, but not wanted, is that he may return to his alma mater, The U. Unbelievable that UGA fans are not satisfied with an average of 10+ wins a year. I guess that is what winning a national championship 35 years ago does for folks! Richt would never have to deal with Alabama, LSU and the like again, though he would still have to find a way to beat Florida. Could be interesting!

      Totally agree, however, I don’t even have a ferret in this fight…..but it DOES make for interesting columns and comments. The U….UoM,FL. Now WHY do I associate that Institution of Higher Education with a Social Drama Experiment? Why do I think that that is has numerous Hispanic versions of Melissa Harris-Perry (the WFU Prof and MSNBC Drama Queen with the Tampax ear dangles)? Because, in 2001, after she was escorted out of the building, she landed the head gig job at the U. Donna (remember the old song) Shalala….THAT Donna
      Then to add more ilogic to dysfunctionality, they THEN hired a Harvard Dean of Public Health who is going to expand the U into the Caribbean and be a force in International Discourse. Wonder if that mean more “free trade” with the cartels from South America? If you want some morning humor….click on the link and scroll down to the bottom and read the 21st Century and Today section.

      Remember Nelson Eddy….of course you do. He sang Slim Whitman’s famous song…..The Indian Love Call. OK, this Native ditty probably would be more appropriate for FSU, but it does fit here. Picture BMFD in full U garb and colorized hair…..singing the following….

      Uu-Uu, Uu-Uu, Uu-uu, Uu Uu Uu Uu
      When I’m calling UuUuU
      Uu-Uu, Uu-Uu, Uu-uu, Uu Uu Uu Uu

      Uu-Uu, Uu-Uu, Uu-uu, Uu Uu Uu Uu

      That means I offer my love to you to be UuUuU own

      Hi Bob Lee,
      I have gone over the evidence many times of how Butch brought in half as many academic exceptions as his predecessor, and also recruited players with SAT scores nearly 50 points higher. But you tell a good story, facts be damned.

      Someone who says he has a radio show (must have a smaller range than the late Good Sports, cause I’ve never heard of him) has used your comment section to defame Coach Davis. Contrary to his characterization of the Wainstein Report, here’s what Mr. Wainstein actually says:

      • “We found no evidence that Coach Davis had contemporaneous knowledge of the academically flawed aspects of the FAAM “paper classes” during his tenure at UNC Chapel Hill.”

      •“Importantly, we found no evidence that he had knowledge of the other two elements, which are academically problematic aspects of the AFAM classes: (2) there was no faculty-student interaction; and (4) the papers were graded by AFAM office administrator Debby Crowder.”

      •“We have no evidence that Coach Davis knew of the particularly low academic expectations detailed in the ASPA PowerPoint while his players were taking those AFAM seminar classes.”

      •“Our Report found no evidence that Coach Davis had any knowledge of plagiarism by his players – either with regard to the paper classes or otherwise – and accordingly made no such finding.”

      I appreciate your and Joe’s columns. BTW, The U is at the academic median of the ACC, ranked higher than Clemson, Syracuse, Pitt, Va. Tech, NC State, Fla. St., and Louisville.

        Hi Jon… using The Bunting Era as your benchmark for comparison is “interesting”. “Facts” particularly statistics are as mold-able as wet clay in any debate. Your insinuation that “developing young men into academic as well as athletic paragons was Job #1 for Professor Davis” is a tad hyperbolic.
        .
        The Scheme was waaaaay larger than Butch Davis and was deep-seated before he ever set foot on Franklin Street. I don’t think he knew, or cared, about it one way or the other. FB may have benefited from it but it was “a MBB thing”. As I noted, I doubt he had any interference from Academics at Miami and therefore did not expect any at UNC. He was a Football Coach hired to develop a Juggernaut Program (which, alas, included “beating NC State” as often as not). “Never beating State” was likely more of a concern for Butch than the ticky-tacky academic stuff. He “had people” to take care of that.
        .
        BD’s Achilles Heel was Marvin’s Arrogance – all the Agent crap – Chris Hawkins crap – Jennifer crap – Little’s parking tickets etc etc. Yes, he got pulled into The Scheme on top of the other crap and it made for a big pile of assorted stuff.
        .
        As for Miami’s sterling academic reputation… do you have the Facts for the academic “majors” of Warren Sapp, Micheal Irvin, Ray Lewis, etc etc etc? I know Miami has a world-renown Marine Biology Dept. Did Butch’s Boys major in Marine Biology or similar academic pursuits? Did Butch’s Boys avail themselves of all that The U offers in preparing young people for success in Life?? I’m serious Jon. Howabout info on where FBers gravitated in The U course catalogue offerings ??? …. I think “Butch going back to The U” would be ideal for all concerned. The first time BD’s Canes come into Kenan might even sell otherwise empty seats.

        for the last few years of Bunting and the first couple of years of Davis, academic requirements for star football recruits were at rock bottom. that was a collective decision by a group of people who wanted unc to have football glory at any cost, including davis.
        then, yes, standards were increased somewhat. so, yes, davis’s last classes weren’t as dismal as bunting’s last classes.
        it’s ridiculous to claim that this was davis’ doing.

      He was a good fit in Miami, before…..but, at UNC, he didn’t accomplish much…he never won a Coastal Div. Championship…..a ACC Championship…was 25-23, overall….had a 15-17 conference record…1-2 in bowl games…and, he never beat NCSU………and, left us with the Great Unpleasantness. If, Joe Ovies would mention those facts, then, maybe, BD’s cool-aid, that Joe’s drinking, would have more of a taste of bitterness going down his palate…….oh, I guess BD did help to get the Blue Zone built, but for the moment, Fedora can’t get the fat-cats, inside, to even come out to their seats at the beginning of the 2nd half to greet the team…NOW, even more empty seats in Kenan to be seen……although, not aluminum…just the comfy, wider, blue seats with cup holders that need to be EVERYWHERE in Kenan…..THEN, maybe, you could fill the stadium, right?

        BMFD’s primary contribution to TGU was giving us “Marvin” whose infamous Tweet broke open Pandora’s Box. “The Scheme” long preceded Butch at CHill.
        .
        IMO… what ended up knee-capping Butch was never beating TO’B. That annual frustration kept him from ever having majority fan base support. THAT (and beating Duke) is #1 with most of the rank /file in the cheap seats.
        .
        As I just noted in a reader comment…. Blake used to openly laugh re: The Carolina Way BS. “Why do you people think you’re any better / any different from fans anywhere else ???” I don’t think BMFD ever gave The Carolina Way any thought one way or the other. He figured “if he wins consistently” nothing else would matter. Not EVER beating State kept that from happening.
        .
        He goes back to The U…. recruits anyone he wants out of South Florida…. gets zero hassle from any U Admin and their W-starved fans will love him. The majority of Miami fans are “Wal-Marters” with no interest in “institutional image” BS. You really think Luther Campbell gives a s*** about the University ???
        .
        As for consistently “filling Kenan” …. IMO, the only way to do THAT is to “reduce capacity” to 45,000 instead of give/take 60,000. Other than using tarps to cover “those unsellable upper/lower corners and “the first ten lower rows” there is no feasible way to “reduce capacity”. Upgrading the seating for the rank/file with seats rather than bleachers would help but ever recovering that cost is “iffy”. When “they” start deep discounting tickets (as they are doing now) simply poisons the season-ticket base which is already shrinking by the 100s because of the larger national issue of “stay-at-home fans”. There is no easy answer to “filling Kenan” despite what the board monkey loonies might blurt.

          BRILLIANT…..
          You have the solution….all you need to get is a receptive ear. Instead of putting Tarps over the seats (Nascar style….or pulling them out….as Bruton Smith is doing at CMS), have a “Makeover.
          Put in a covered Wine and Cheese Bar….two of them. One that has MD20 (or higher values) and one that will sell only wine produced by communes in Orange and Chatham County. It MUST be organically grown, of course….with NO preservatives. There is MORE than enough natural fertilizer on campus which could be recycled to nurture the grapes. And with all the “liberal DNA” in the wine, it eventually could become the Kool-Aid of the masses.
          The Sweet Carolines (and their grannies and mommies) could be the Heel’s Girls (as in Hooter’s) and the UNC School of Medicine could do a quick Booby Augmentation job on Ms. Folt and she and the girls could have a memorable selfie moment at the Grand Opening.
          Folks would spend WAY more than the ticket prices (full Retail….NOT Groupon and Social Living discounts). The revenue would flow in….Johnny Swoff would find an exception to the No Alcohol rule as it was the “Holy Drink” of UNC.

          GO FOR IT….you are the ONLY one that can save UNC….and bring back the fans….(OK, having Kate Upton at all home games for revealing selfies would work…..)

      I still wonder how oklahoma, FSU, ole miss, alabama, tennessee, NCSU, florida, ohio state, clemson, USC, and texas keep their dumb jocks eligible. is carolina that much harder that our “student athletes” need help? I do wish someone could explain it to me.

        Coloring one’s hair for vanity’s sake is not a ‘coaches’ thing. JustForMen and Clairol have a MUCH broader market and always will.
        .
        To your bigger question… Why use NCSU as an example? NCSU is by no means “a juggernaut FB school” but simply historically middle-of-the-road / mediocre FB program stuck on 5-8 W season endless loop vying for WhoCares “Bowls”…. as is UNC. Maybe “catch lightning in a bottle” once a decade. The two UNC System schools have similar restrictions to ever gaining Juggernaut status in FB.
        .
        The majority of those Juggernaut schools are “open admission” meaning “getting past admissions requirements” is a cake-walk with a minimum test score. Once “in” those schools all have some version of a General Studies majors which are basically Glorified GED classes.
        .
        IF UNC instituted a General Studies option it would absolve the need for The Scheme…. and satisfy “Mary” who only wanted her semi-literate students to get SOME benefit from a few years “in colleges”. Improve on their semi-literate high school education. UNC’s BS AfAm / Gender Studies crap have zero nutritional value. A Glorified GED program WOULD have a benefit…. that was / is denied those kids in k-12.

        UNC Admins refuse to do that because of their much-inflated view of themselves as “a public ivy”. Going back to Dick Crum’s “Harvard / Oklahoma” comment.

          .
          the reason I included state is because they are the ones enjoying “our situation” the most. the forget we recruit the same kids, and some how they stay eligible in raleigh. perhaps they have open admissions!

            .
            Stanford IS the exception proving the rule. An attractive / sexy NoCal location …. with the ability to recruit nationally and go for any serious student-athlete who knows that “a Stanford degree” (as with a Duke degree) has cache. PLUS their last two HCs have been Big Wins for them. The current guy – David Shaw the AfAm guy – is a Stanford Legacy who “gets” the whole Palo Alto “Farm” thing.
            .
            No… NCSU has the same basic restrictions that UNC does. NOT an open admission policy…. and NO General Studies curriculum. And, as noted, mired in decades of “sometimes pretty good but usually just OK” success. We do recruit the same regional kids. NCSU would have taken Julius Peppers as they did TA McLendon and others…. They deal with their semi-literates however they can.
            .
            The sheer magnitude and brazenness of The Scheme simply BLEW UP on UNC. Trying to blame UNC’s troubles on rival fans is Jackass Logic. Like blaming Bill Clinton’s scandals on Ken Starr & FoxNews. “UNC did it” – “UNC got caught doing it” – now UNC is at the mercy of it’s own stupidity and greed. Reality Bites.

Absolutely but it was sold convincingly to a very gullible fan base for decades. Not unlike “Liberals are smarter than everyone else just because ….”. In both cases, who would not want to be told that they are part of a very special privileged subset of humanity… entitled to all the rights / privileges there to simply by joining? No test. No initiation. Just say “I’m in” and you automatically become “better …. smarter” ? Sure, it was promoted by the Univ administration and AthDept but primarily promoted by the fan base itself which loved “being better than everyone else” or thinking they were. Who wouldn’t? A vital key to the “success” of TCW was how much it always OUTRAGED ABCers especially one particular segment of it’s rival fans. 🙂
            .
            Butch is simply one of an ongoing list of sort of gifted con-artists/ coaches. He believes the way he gets results is perfectly fine IF he gets those desired results… and by rights he should IF he has better football-talent on his roster than his opponents do. John Blake often lampooned / laughed at Carolina fans and their “WE are sooo much better than all those other places….”. Even Blake knew TCW was pure crap. BMFD never gave it any thought one way or the other. Butch’s Way worked perfectly at Miami, why not at UNC. Maybe Butch’s Way WOULD have worked EXCEPT for those annual losses to TO’B and, of course, Marvin’s Tweet.

I hope you’ll allow me to respond to JoeO, SiriusXM’s Rickie Neuheisel AND BMFD hisself with my response to this column… #1-Yes, in the present-day fantasy of what “The U” used to be, they deserve BMFD! #2-Coach New said earlier today in response to BMFD’s public groveling to go back to cheating his ass off at the U (and if Nevin Shapiro could be released from federal prison to return to the fold too, that’d be just peachy), “How about they do their homework…” Really, let’s talk about “homework,” shall we… JENIFER WILEY, who “tutored” BMFD’s own son in addition to dozens of baby-blue thug-aletes (in addition to other benefits), which were thoroughly detailed in the Wainstein Report and dozens of times by that damn Dan Kane in the N&O. She had thousands of discrestionary dollars on hand at all times to pay for thug-aletes parking tickets and wrote dozens of term papers for said thug-aletes out of the goodness of her own heart! NO connection whatsoever between her and BMFD, which is why she readily cooperated with the multiple NCAA investions, no wait… hmmm. #3-BMFD has stated to anyone who will listen that the NCAA NOA doesn’t cite him specificly… ONLY because he doesn’t recall more than half of his tenure at UNC… But, the Wainstein Report cites several incidents of which he was either involved or aware of malfeasance, and again states emphatically that there is more than sufficient evidence that BMFD was in attendance during the meeting where academic advisors showed the coaching staff Power Point Presentation that the matriarch of the scheme was retiring and how were they going to keep their half-witted all-americans eligible!!

That trick with the swimming schollies was quite clever. SURE he did all THAT with JenniferTheTutor et al… and he earned him a three-year paid vacation compliments of the benevolence of The Flagship. Tricky Ricky Neuheisal certainly has his baggage from various stops.

          I’m certainly not connecting or blaming you for any idiocy elsewhere, but while I share my idiocy every morning on my radio show, your site is a broader audience to share that brilliance with the masses… I SO want to call that silly-ass SiriusXM show that allows that lying SOB BMFD on semi-regularly, to set the record straight, BUT, I don’t waste my time, because I’ve been doing sportstalk for over 25 years know that their “screeners” would confine the the truth through the 7-second delay…

            Sirius radio is a world I know / care nothing about. I know I am infatuated with Colin Cowherd’s new sidekick-ette on FS1 – Kristine Leahy. The lip gloss budget for their show must be thru the roof !! That is the ONLY sports talk I ever catch and that only now & then. And I fail to “get” the BFD about Bill Simmons ??? …. and Jason Whitlock is quickly becoming a caricature of himself. He’s been fired from more newspapers, radio and TV networks that most people can even name.
