Haith is going to be the best dressed guy in the unemployment line in one more season.

Esteban

#3? is that Greg paulus? Old pic or new guy looks just like the old one?

86Cane

If I told U The Jack Attack:

1. Wears Canespace
2. Got a Canespace card
3. Agreed to an interview; and
4. Signed two shirts for me would U believe it?

Well U should!

miamimike01

Este,

Randy is telling me that UM (Rick Barry) played the likes of:

Manhattan, St. Francis, Niagara, Rollins, St. Johns, Stetson, St. Peters, Fl. Southern, FSU, UF, St. Mary, San Fransisco and St. Joseph.

So everything being equal, yes he deserves his jersey # retired.

Is Tim James jersey # retired?

Este...I have to confess, it is an OLD pic. I forgot my camera this trip so unfortunately we will be reposting old photos with the blogs.

Pretend NOT to notice when I post the baseball feature on Friday night.

Agreed?

BARRY - MC equel???????????????????????????


As a consensus 1st team All-America forward for the Miami Hurricanes in 1965, Barry averaged an eye-catching 29.8 points for his entire collegiate career. As a senior, he averaged an incredible 37.4 points a game, leading the nation in scoring. During his career at Miami he led the Hurricanes to a 65-16 record including three 20-win seasons and two appearances in the National Invitation Tournament.

The first basketball jersey to be retired at the University of Miami was Rick Barry's number 24. He remains the Hurricanes' all-time leading scorer and lone consensus first team All-American. Barry, who finished his UM career with 2,298 points and 1,274 rebounds, is the only Hurricane to top both the 2,000 point and the 1,000 rebound barrier. He still owns five UM career records and numerous single-season records.

A first-round draft pick of the San Francisco Warriors in 1965, he was selected as an all-star 12 times during his career, including four times in the American Basketball Association and eight times in the NBA. One of the most prolific scorers in basketball history, Rick Barry is the only person in the history of the game to win a scoring title in the NCAA, the American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association. In 1986 he was inducted into the National Basketball hall of fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. Ten years later, he was named one of the 50 Greatest players in NBA history.

1st Team All-ACC two years in a row is nothing to sneeze at.

The ACC, year in and year out, is the BEST basketball conference in the country.

He's in VERY good company, because we all know who they are.

Esteban

MM01, I'm with solar. It's beyond a stretch comparing Jack to Rick. Barry could have played anyone and he'd have been great- as evidenced in him being great in the pros.

86Cane

Solar...don't blow a gasket!

Barry was the better player and was on hand tonight to recognize the other UM players who were having their jerseys retired.

It all about The U!

solarcane

Barry was a supa staa!!
lol

Esteban

First team all acc is impressive, but should that get your jersey retired?

I think Texas retiring Kevin durant's jersey is a little much but didn't he at least win the Naismith? If he didn't than I'm in the 'that's crazy' category for that one too. One year and they didn't win anything.

miamimike01

I'm not comparing Barry to McClinton...

the COMPETITION was WAY tougher.

Barry scored 50 against Rollins, McClinton would have done the same...

I know you're too young to remember Barry, but don't minimize what Jack did...

solarcane

mmike randycane,
I didn't mean Jack attack isn't good.
I meant Barry is in another category.
He beat every pro he played against, so as este said he would have beat them had they played in college too.
no offense meant to Jack's accomplishments.

soup,
you are right I over reacted but, this would indicate there are one hell of a lot of Hurricane football players that should have their number retired.

Daytoncane

Posted by: miamimike01 | February 18, 2010 at 12:16 AM

i don't know about that. the Big East usually gets the most teams in the tourney and they go the farthest.

i'd take Syracuse over any ACC team.

miamimike01

Tim DOES have his # retired, I just learned.

But Barry never took his team to the NCAA tourney... (UM was on probation)

So yeah, I stand by my statement. Jack DESERVES his number in the rafters.

Only the third player to have his jersey retired...

Dick Hickox, Glenn Beckard, and McCoy will have their jersey retired, someday. They're in the UM HOF already.

solarcane

mmike,
Barry out played every guy that went from college to the pros when he did.
He would have outplayed them in college too had they played.

I'm not close to too young not to remember Rick Barry.

miamimike01

i'd take Syracuse over any ACC team.

So would I, Dayton.

Year after year, my friend. Not just this one or even the last 10.

Posted by: solarcane | February 18, 2010 at 12:33 AM

I'm not addressing U, solar. I know your that old! LOL! (no offense) RC thinks Barry was the best to ever take the court for UM, but Jack deserves the honor as well.

I was talking to Este.

solarcane

If Barry got to shoot 3 pointers we wouldn't even be discussing this at all.

Imagine Maravich or Barry's ppg ave shooting threes??????

solarcane

I'm not addressing U, solar. I know your that old! LOL! (no offense)

aight thats it mike!!!!!!!! lol!

What's going on people!?!

Just wanna drop by and see what's going on in the space, haven't been here for a while, but good to see the usual names.

Spring scrimmage, here we come!!!

solarcane

Everybody is entitled to their opinion, I'll be honest about this I followed Barry much closer than I did McClinton.

Nice read about GT players deciding/debating whether to declare for the draft.

If they want my advice...I say go for it! He He

Go 'canes!

86Cane

Long day, tired as hell, I'm out in the 954...

Daytoncane

Just watch their expressions when they lose and notice how they prepare their players mentally. They don't HATE IT. No one likes it but not many people HATE IT.

That's why JJ and Irvin said the key to turning around Dallas was getting rid of people who HATE TO LOSE. I wonder if Shannon was at that dinner or on any of those teams?? Hmmmmm.

And if you know anything about performance and playing you know you speak what you expect and prepare accordingly.

Talk doesn't mean you when but if you don't talk it, you most certainly will not win it.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | February 17, 2010 at 11:37 PM


i don't understand how you can just assume a person doesn't hate losing by looking at their facial expression.

i think you've forgotten that Randy shows virtually no emotion on the sideline at all. by your definition that means he doesn't hate to lose. i can tell Jim Leavitt hates to lose and yet he's not there anymore.

like i said, win the ACC first and then talk about how good of a coach Randy is. until then, he's just another guy.

ask someone who isn't a Miami fan and see what they say.

RandyCane

If Miami is going to evaluate all who play basketball by the Rick Barry standard, then they will only have one jersey retired forever.

I was fortunate to see Rick Barry play many times while at UM. If I'm not mistaken they played at an auditorium out by the Beach somewhere. With his underhanded free throws he was deadly accurate. He would have been deadly from the three point line if they had it when he played.

I'm sure that he led the NCAA in scoring at least one year and made All-American at least three times. It's been a while and I'm as old as solar, well maybe not that old! but I would be willing to place a bet on those stats.

When it comes to McClinton, I have no problem with his number being raised along with James and Barry.

Two times voted All-ACC is nothing to sneeze about. I'm not comparing him to
anyone else who ever made All-ACC but you must admit he is with some impressive company.

Miami not being a basketball school. I mean how many years did they not even field a team?

A guy makes that squad twice; I often wonder what he might have done at a UNC or Duke with the tradition they have.

This guy with not much talent around him makes this squad twice, at a school whose greatest player played his last game in 1965.

Whatever our view, the fact is, number 33 is now retired at the U.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I'm sure someone has posted this already, but this one cracks me up everytime, Tebow and the U!

randycane good post

RandyCane

Without the turnovers what would have been...

UM must lead the conference and the NCAA as the team with the most turnovers. So many lost opportunities to score.

It is very frustrating to watch.

sebas13

Guys , I really hope we can beat OSU this year . What do u think r our chances of doing that ? BTW Saying I despise them would not begin to explain how i feel about osu !!!

francis w

I was a young married guy with 3 kids who did my military obligation and Yes was a UM fan even though I never attended Colege. I drove to Miami Beach Auditorium many times to watch Rick Barry and the canes B ball team. One thing U people forget or are unaware of, the U was an independant. and schedulng good or better teams to come to Miami must have been difficult, at best. It must have been even harder when Barry showed the ability he had as a Freshman. The supporting cast at the U was not at any time good enough to compete for National prominance even when Barry was here. BTW my second fav U B Ball player was Harry "The Horse" Manushaw I doubt anyone of U knew him LOL.

CaneRock

Sebas13, I liken the OSU game to the Washington game the year Miami got slimed out of playing for a NC. I don't know, but I see history repeating itself with a loss in Columbus, and Miami just running the table the rest of the year...

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Oh yeah, 12-1 BABEEEEEE!

CanesCanesCanes

Jack Jack attack. I haven't forgotten it. He deserves the honor FWIW, for all the reasons previously stated. On top of it all, he was an excellent student and has represented the U honorably. If he keeps working hard (the guy's a hard worker) and hones his game in Europe, I'm hoping we see him repping the U in the NBA.

UMike

CaneRock...I wouldnt mind a 12-1 season lol...but on the other hand..I'd rather go 9-3 again and BEAT THE CRAP out of OSU lol

Fran

pb(CSROH10)

Haith isn't going anywhere in my opinion.

He has a core of three or four very talented freshman that will continue to improve, and as newbies they have suddenly gotten very competitive.

I predict Durand Scott is going to be a beast.

BEERicane

solarcane

cg,
yea Shaun seems like he loves his sport more than the attention it brings which is pretty rare.

The Truth

I'd rather 12-1 even if it meant losing to OSU. I havenothing against OSU. Terry Porter? Sure. OSU, not so much.

Then again I'd rather be 12-1 if it meant losing to floriduh or even ND

12-1 is 12-1.

9-3 sucks.

The Truth

I didn't get to catch White doing his thing. Sorry I missed it.

pb(CSROH10)


I consider myself pretty objective when it comes to the Canes and I just can't see 9-3 with the offense we are going to have next season.

Even with an average o-line, as long as Jacory is 100%, we can put up 35 a game with the explosive skill position players we have. If we can get it to above average, we will torch everyone we play.

The icing is the fact our three toughest conference foes--VT, FSU and the Tar Heels have to come here.

9-3...no way.

I'm sure Cav knows Randy was on that Dallas team with Jimmy coaching and Irvin at WR. Always remember the story of Randy being told he's going to be cut but the coaches wanted him to teach the LBs that were brought in the defense - including Jack Del Rio.

UMike

pb....I dont actually think we will go 9-3..im right there with you..I think a healthy J12 and were easily 11-1 last year

Esteban

nothing will be easy. but still should put up a lot of wins next year.

FSU is never easy. VT is never easy. OSU is never easy. UNC is never easy - at least for us. Pittsburgh isn't a rollover. Clemson same. USF should be improved as well. All are tough teams.

With that said. We can score on all of them. Just will be whether we can keep them from scoring more - pretty much what has the been said by a number of posters already but its the truth.

Esteban

Ohio State is the team that'll be toughest to score on most likely. And I looked up how they scored 31 against Wisconsin considering their offensive stats that game - Pryor threw for 87 yards, They rushed for 97 yards. Then i see they had 2 INTs for TD and KO for TD.

JSQ

Then i see they had 2 INTs for TD and KO for TD.

Yeah, I watched that game at our FAMU tailgate. It was deadlocked for a LONG time because no one could do anything offensively. B-O-R-I-N-G. OSU was able to capitalize on Wisconsin's mistakes in the second half.

This was around the time of the season Pryor was calling Jacory for advice.

I think we could improve as a team, and still end up with one more loss than we did last year. Our schedule is harder if U ask me. I know a lot of things can happen before the season starts i.e. injures, suspensions and so on. I hope we win them all , but U never know.

No U would NOT! Winning the ACC means everything. Beating OSU and going 9-3 means LOSING the ACC again. OSU is completely irrelvant to 2010 season which is ALL that matters now.

I can't let it go, yet. After we've beaten OSU and won our next NC (not necessarily in the same year) then that demon will officially be exorcized from my soul. Too many bad memories of jumping up and down thinking we had won #6 and then having my heart broken. I bled orange and green that night in massive quantities (as well as drank in massive quantities).
