Old Skool

Here’s FU Coach Urban’s all purpose quote anytime he’s questioned about specific allegations involving one of his players.
Just fill in the blank..,
"We won two national championships and 44 games, most in the SEC during that time period, and some of the greatest years in the history of Florida football," Meyer said.

"And I was on the sidelines [during that time] with a guy that I know exactly the competitive nature that we're dealing with. _______ is an extreme competitor."
Jamar Hornsby
Ronnie Wilson
Nyan Boateng
Taurean Charles
Dusty Doe
Carl Johnson
Torrey Davis
Cam Newton
Percy Harvin

Now that’s a character reference.

Great article by Manny. We need Wall.

86Cane

If you all want to change the rules where U pick ANY two players (can be two on offense, two on defense or one and one) that is fine, but U still get ONLY two picks.

IraqiCane

Damn then I go with Streeter/Spence

86Cane

Good picks Iraqi, although DAT probably has the best so far.

DATcane

Thanks 86, thought U would hate because I didnt take your boy on O.

explain this

you write an article on Bosher, you get your picture with Bosher, Bosher is the current MVP and you dis him for one of your legends? LOl good picks though

really out

Harris/Spence

86Cane

Ocala...thought U might like that!

DAT...U know my guy on offense is Aldarius Johnson, who I picked last year, and who will be a first round draft pick.

But Mike James is my PICK for this year on O. I picked Shields as a sentimental choice. Not sure how much he will play but after talking to his dad after the SPRING GAME I have a special feeling for Sam.

Telemaque has been (prematurely) compared to a young ST#26 and is a very popular choice to do BIG things this year.

Don Bailey picked Byrd along with several others (Jacory, MJ, Shields).

Bosher is the MAN!!!
Last year he had a breakout Season He Is now A True Hurricane legend...
See example (Gator body SLAM)
I want these other players to have that success this year...

The Blurr = Hester
Forston = Sapp

VAULT THAT!

Ocean State Cane

JJ & RayRay, again cuz they rhyme

Alex

The only way the Canes can compete for an ACC title or the NC (I'm being overly optimistic...I have a good feeling about this though) is for the DB to be solid all year. I'm struggling between picking DVD or VT (since everyone has high expectation from VT), I'll pick DVD. So, my legions are: DVD and JH..

Soup and 86, mark this down please. you guys will call me a genius comes november lol...

I'm just going to repeat my picks from last year, because injuries tripped them up last year, and go with Moncur and Benjamin. Though everybody seems to be forgetting how valuable McCarthy is

You can copy the links DAT provided and paste them into your address bar. Just be sure to remove the comma at the end of the addy and they'll work just fine. Thanks for the links DAT - always interesting reading!

From www.hurricanesports.com:

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The 11th-ranked University of Miami baseball team picked up its fifth straight mid-week win with a 13-7 victory over Florida Gulf Coast Wednesday night at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

With the game knotted 7-7 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Miami (27-13) scored four runs in the frame to take the lead for good over FGCU (22-16). The go-ahead run came when Iden Nazario - who doubled to right-center to start the rally - scored from second on a Chris Herrmann single up the middle. Moments later, Harold Martinez followed with a walk before Dave DiNatale smacked a deep three-run homer to left to put the `Canes up four.

Scott Lawson led UM with three hits, going 3-for-5 with three runs scored while five other Hurricanes recorded two hits on the night. Martinez finished 2-for-4 with a homer, four RBI and two runs scored, DiNatale went 2-for-4 with three RBI, Herrmann finished 2-for-3 with two walks, two RBI and three runs scored while Jason Hagerty went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run. Nazario also had two hits and two RBI off the bench.

Reliever Daniel Miranda (3-2) earned the win, holding the Eagles hitless while striking out two in 1 2/3 innings. Starter Jason Santana allowed five earned runs on nine hits while walking two and striking out one in 4 2/3 innings. Rene Guerra relieved Santana to record the final out of the fifth before Sam Robinson (1 IP, 1 ER), Miranda and Kyle Bellamy (1 1/3 IP, 0 ER) finished out the game for UM.

More from the official UM web site:

NEW ORLEANS -As announced by the USTFCCCA, the University of Miami women's track team has moved up four spots to a season-best No. 15 ranking in the national poll, after its performance at the ACC Championship in Coral Gables this past weekend.

"Obviously I feel like we could have performed better at ACC's," said Director of Track and Field Amy Deem, after the Hurricanes placed fifth over the weekend. "I still feel that we have every opportunity to be successful at the national meet, if we continue to improve."

One of the main reasons Miami made the jump in the polls was the season debut of senior Murielle Ahoure in both the 100 and 200-meter dashes. The sprinter won the ACC Championships in both events and her trial times of 11.34 and 22.98 rank Nos. 13 and 3 in the NCAA this season.

In addition to Ahoure, Kristy Whyte (100m, 200m), Tameka Jameson (400m hurdles) and Deandra Doyley (long jump) all improved on their previous regional qualifying marks to aid the team's jump in the polls.

Sorry Truth....

"As announced by the USTFCCCA..."
really? that's their acronym? nothing shorter could possibly be available? lol...
alright 86...
remove my "JJ" and replace it with, Jimmy Graham...

there it is
the big redhead and RayRay... risky enough?

UMike

Bryd / Spence

pb(CSROH09)

I want to repeat my pick of an O-lineman because without a breakout year from one or more of them, this season is going to frustrate us yet again.

But I won't.

I will take Jacory (25+ TDs) and Robinson (10 sacks).

3-0-CINCO

JJ / Sharpton.

Seniors will be holding it down.

86Cane

bg...highlights?

CaneSniper

Wow Brandon McGee ran a 4.23 40. Swasey says he's tied for the fastest freshman he's ever seen with Travis Benjamin. Harlan Gunn also put up huge strength numbers. I just wish he could move a little quicker. Growing up in Nebraska will do that to you.
Tommy Streeter went from a 4.55 last year to a 4.40 this year.

The Truth

Chicago no worries!! Great picks if I do say so my self!

And speaking of risk: choosing a freshman kid that has yet to step foot on campus is a risk.

And I'll go a step further...he may...MAY start from game 3 on.

The position?

Hmmmmmmm...

We shall see but I'm betting he's a SS for good. At least until he outgrows it.

The kid, #26 is big and going to get bigger. Plus, he's the best recruit in the country IMO.

CaneSniper

Swasey also pointed out huge improvements from Laron Byrd in strength and vertical leap. And although Taylor Cook beat Jacory Harris in the 40 - 4.65 to 4.70, Jacory set an all-time record for vertical leap among QB's, shattering the old record held by Kenny Kelley by 2.5 inches.

tjl3909

Ray Ray n Jo Jo

CaneSniper

Baby J ran a 4.41 and Mike James put up an impressive 4.52 for a big power back.

bg1906

Lets guess what numbers do the new guys get (Soup could you keep a list of this too???)
Hmmmmmmmmm...

Lets see:

Knowns

Brandon McGee - 21
Mike James - 22
Olivier Vernon - 35
Curtis Porter - 96
Jermaine Johnson - 78
Brandon Washington - 72
Ray Ray Armstrong - 26
Lamar Miller - 27

Unknowns

Stephen Plein - 82
Malcolm Bunch - 79
Shayon Green - 52
AJ Highsmith - 10
Billy Sanders - 80
Dyron Dye - 93
Prince Kent - 14
Jamal Reid - 15
Luther Robinson - 75
Jared Wheeler - 73
Cory White - 76

bg1906

According to the numbers Streeter is the fastest WR. A 6'6'' guy running 4.4 = DANGER!

CaneSniper

Aldarius Johnson's 4.61 40 time doesn't bode well. Ramon Buchanon was near the top in several categories, including his 4.48 time in the 40. And Theron Collier ran a 4.58 which is surprisingly slow after watching him on the field.
Forston's 4.84 is impressive

bg1906

Cookie is fastest LB (4.48). Allen Bailey can be scary at DT if he gets the technique down and decides he wants to be animal. 4.65 and he's nearly 300 lbs...WOW!

bg1906

And not to be outdone, Forston ran a 4.84. Those are some fast DTs!

CaneSniper

Yeh Bailey is a beast. Hope he shows it on the field.

CaneSniper

"According to the numbers Streeter is the fastest WR. A 6'6'' guy running 4.4 = DANGER!"

But...Travis Benjamin was held out of testing

bg1906

Laron Byrd killed the short shuttle (3.98). That's great short area quickness. Kendal Thompkins was 2nd at (4.04) and suprisingly Leonard Hankerson is 3rd.

bg1906

Aldarius is running in mudd! 4.67! But he runs great routes and uses his body well. Catches. Great possession WR, but if he only had some real get up = Scary thought!

bg1906

Impressed with Jimmy Graham!

40 - 4.63
Short Shuttle - 4.23
Vertical - 37

bg1906

CSniper,

Yeah you are right, forgot The Blur didn't run.

The Truth

85 has ALL the tools but what between his ears is a whole lotta doubt. I pray that kid, along with Sheilds gets a clue cuz both of them have the ability to be superstars.

It MAY be too late with #9 but Hank still has time.

The Truth

Don't tell Soup but numero quarto es despacio!!!!!!

bg1906

Reading the numbers, I'm convinced its not Swasey for the low numbers in the recent past, its the players. Great gains for many players. Forston is now benching 395 and Allen Bailey who last year was benching 365 is now 405 in bench and 565 in squat.

Mike James benching 350 and squatting 435 is also impressive.

Hey Truth, they should be able to hold up the point now, you agree???

The Truth

That would be número quatro...not the number room. Thanks!!!

The Truth

You'd think bg but until I see it 9/7 I'm not counting on anything.

bg1906

Jacory is weighing 186 from 168. Taylor Cook set all time power clean mark for QB at 274.

Guys have to start focusing on power cleans more. That builds explosiveness. Jermaine Johnson tested in January when he arrived and could only clean 152 lbs. Now its up to 196. For a football player especially a OLineman that is HORRIBLE! BUT, if you aren't used to doing cleans, it does take some time to get the technique of cleaning down. Brandon Wash bench 400 but clean was 176, but now 242. BWash also has lost some weight from 351 to 335. O Franklin from 345 to 328. And Jason Fox from 295 to 310.

bg1906

Also Spence is now 214. Not bad. If he can get up to about 220 with more strength and maintain speed, that'd be ideal!

j.w.

the coaches wouldn't give out no. 47 to a WR for nothing, so I'm going with Byrd on O. On D, the alligator-killer has finally found a position and is ready to rock, go Bailey!

bg1906

Funny thing is #4 ran 4.8 last year so he is faster, but still slow! HAHAHA!

CanesgirlNC

LOL 86 - I did start the LOF stuff too bad I am not better at it. But here goes:

Special Teams - Sam Shields\Matt Bosher
Offense - G. Coop\Mike James
Defense - Marcus Forston\Adewale Ojomo

JJ will probably stay healthy all year and have a monster year because I did not pick him this time ;-D

Chinese Punisher aka Cavaleer

Laron Byrd and Olivier Vernon.

I thought I'd pick one obvious and one talented reach.

The Truth

97 ain't a reach...kids a stud. Good pick.

KLCaneFan

Oh, wow... I'm having a hard time settling on just two because I have a feeling that this year there will be a few kids we'll be talking about.

Byrd and M Rob

shwarma

Trying to give these boys some good karma with my LOF picks

Offense
Baby J - Here's to him not being injured. He is our most complete back and I would like to see him go out like he came in.

Defense
Big Bossman Bailey (WWF version was from GA too) - Time to show that he's not just Richard Gordon 2.0 (physical freak but little production)

shwarma

Though Bailey is more physically talented than Gordon, I just wanted to use a current example.

SuperCooper

I have to laugh at Cooper running a 4.37. What kind of timer is Swasey using?

You can pretty much add .1 or .2 to those 40 times.

SuperCooper

Forston at 4.8 and Baby J at 4.4. LOL

shwarma

The same timer as the gayturds use then apparently. I mean last year didn't they make the claim they had 10 guys who ran a sub 4.4? I mean that's just improbable even though speed is the most important element of their offense.

shwarma

Also, we have all been talking about the workout room numbers, but anyone care to paraphrase what Hurtt said about recruiting?
