I check in just to see a new blog up. Cool. I see UTexas is doing their usual and loading up on verbals for the following season already, having gotten six on junior day. Nobody does it like they do unfortunately.

UM BASEBALL... yesterday
Optimism reigns at Canes' annual fan event
UM coach Jim Morris is seeking redemption after last season's disappointing finish, and he is confident he will get it with the players he has.

BY BILL VAN SMITH
Miami Herald Writer

It was meet-and-greet day for the University of Miami baseball team Saturday as the Hurricanes held their annual FanFest at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.


The more than 3,000 attending seemed optimistic about the upcoming season as they met players, coaches and mascot Sebastian the Ibis. Also included in the activities were fans taking to the batting cage and getting an attempt to hit. And for the kids, there were pony rides and a bounce house.


UM coach Jim Morris seemed relaxed and jokingly explained: ``Right now, we haven't lost a game.''

Nevertheless, Morris and Miami are coming off what the coach called ``one of the toughest years since I've been in Miami.'' The Canes finished 38-22 in 2009.


``I don't think anybody in the Miami program considers that acceptable,'' he said. ``It wasn't a good year for us. It was not up to par. It wasn't a fun year. We didn't end up being ranked in the top 10, we didn't go to Omaha, [Neb.,] we didn't do the things we expected to. We didn't go to a Super Regional.''


Nevertheless, Morris hopes 2010 will be a bounce-back season, starting with their season opener Friday at home against Rutgers.


``The talent is there,'' he said.


He has plenty of confidence in his top starting pitchers, Eric Erickson and Chris Hernandez.

``We've got two No. 1s with those two guys,'' Morris said. ``Normally, we play four games a week, and when you start out with those two, that's a pretty good thing.''


Morris also called junior Yasmani Grandal ``arguably the best catcher in the country.''

Good Morning everyone and Happy Valentines Day to all the Cane lovers out there. I loved the pictures. I was at that game with 86 and Mrs. 86 when the picture of Zack with the cheerleaders was taken. He was so excited and it was cute to watch him. We all had such a good time. A special treat for me, being from Michigan.

raizecane

Happy Valentines Day everyone........good day to kick back and watch the Daytona 500 :-)

canechic

Raize sorry but I would rather mow 30 lawns....I am a NASCAR hater...kinda right up there with the gators to me...just my opinion!

Cat 5 Cane


Alright crew, I'm out.

A Valentine's wish for everyone... May the Bird of Happiness fly over your heads for a day... Just carry a towel!

raizecane

CC - It's not for everyone. But I can assure you this, if you ever attend a Daytona 500 in person, spend a few days in the infield, etc.....you are hooked.

canechic

Not sure of that raize maybe if I am driving yes...not a real fan of NASCAR fans so I think being cooped up in the infield with a bunch of them would not be safe, I may go all Angrycane on them, lol!

JSQ

Update: I'm alive and I have an entire bag of beads to take home earned with only a smile emerging from my many bundles of clothing. It is SO COLD!

By the way, I like this Molly Jones girl!

toledocane

The mrs. surprised me last night and took me to a comedy club up here in Toledo- Finesse Mitchell was the headliner. He was on SNL for 3 years, but, more importantly, played corner for the Canes from 90-92. Got pics and autographs with him- he said he came in with Warren Sapp, etc. Cool night all around (and he was funny as sh%t too).

CGNC

Ohhhh CC and I was looking forward to taking U and Angry to the Hall of Fame here before I go ;-D

CGNC

Toledo - if you ever get the change to see Frank Caliendo live - DO IT. He will not disappoint

solarcane

Where the heck is CGNC in her green drees in the above pictures??????????

Tim Tebow is a class guy, people in denial of that are just jealous, it's that simple.

Happy Valentines Day to all the ladies!!

Toledo....
Well talking about it is ok lets see the pics. Always interested in what people see away from Miami.
Better yet do an article on Finesse Mitchell for canespace. Just asking not demanding LOL
Fran

toledocane

I'll see what I can do pic wise (don't think I'm quite up there blog wise with all these heavy hitters!). Oh yeah, Finesse also said he and the Rock were tight. Must be nice!

toledocane

CGNC- Caliendo always cracks me up on Mike & Mike (esp. the Barkley bits)

raizecane

CGNC - my 13 year old is going to see Jeff Dunham in a few weeks and I am still debating about letting her go because I heard he is pretty raunchy LIVE. Do you know if that is true or not?

CGNC

Sorry Raize I am not familiar with him. Check out youtube there is probably some stuff of him live on there.

Toledo - in person he is off the chain - it is like watching 8 people at once.

Solar, LOL - somehow that pic always gets lost.

Lurker

Kudos to Molly Jones for having the stones to do that.

Kudos as well to Tim Tebow for being a good sport. Yes I "hate" Tebow as a Gator, but that's "hate" in a football, I-hate-the-gators kind of way. Personally, I think he's a really good guy, whether you agree with his politics/principles or not.

The only personal thing I would say about him is that he seems to be really naive to me. I think Urban ran a four year con job on him, did nothing to help him get to the next level (which I'm sure he told Tim he was). I realize that's not UL's job, but I sincerely think TB thought Urban and him had s special relationship when in reality Urban was only trying to add to his own personal legend. His recent behavior indicates to me that he thinks it's all about him. JMO.

On another topic: Happy Valentines Day, ladies. Hope cupid was good to you.

Starving myself today waiting for my gangsta filet tonight at Morton's Steakhouse.

Great food, Great wine and a great honey.

What more can you ask for????

I'm with CC on the Nascar thing. Just not my thing.

Raize I heard the same thing that once you go see as race live you are hooked.

Soilar continues to swing from Tebag's sack I see LOL ;)!!!!

Cmon son come over to the darkside. Don't let your admiration cloud your hate. You have a lot to learn young one..

Morton's steak with an nice cab. Sounds like a plan.

We used to go to Daytona and surf and go to the Fire Cracker 400 which was like sitting in a Burger King broiler four five hours.

We used to go to Sebring every year back in the wide open filth and decadent infield days.

Anybody that ever witnessed Sebring before the Pure Prairie Act squashed it will tell you Mardi Gras is a parade down Sesame Street.

Canez1

LMAO!!

I see Jimmy Johnson who invented the Legion of Doom has a new light sabre.
It's a struggle not to wander back into the darkness lol!!!

Lurker

Solar

Never been to the Sebring but I have heard, in detail, about the infield "activities" back in the day from people that were there.

I always would listen to their stories, mouth hanging wide open, laughing, and saying things like "you've got to be ******* kidding me", "no way", etc. I guess at least some of it was true, heh?

canechic

Canez 1 have a great time be sure to have your Mariah CD ready for later tonight ;), lol

Solar has a man crush, Solar has a man crush...Solar loves Timmy...Solar loves Timmy...the annoying brat Canechic sings while swinging at recess!

solarcane

ccc,

It was insane.
Everything you heard about the infield "shows" is true.
I won't go into any of it here.

Add being drunk, yet dehydrated, asphyxiated from 600 campfires, dodging Cobras, Porches, and drunks crashing into your campsite all night and you have a hell of a weekend. lol!

solarcane

canechic lol!!!
So you're the big mouth girl with the long hair I used to walk up behind and yank off the swings by her hair!

Old Skool

Boy, those Sebring stories live on. I never made it, but heard plenty.

bg1906

Just some random thoughts.

1. I was listening to the interviews on WQAM of Jason Fox and Baby J as they prepre for th NFL combine. It reminded me of something that Truth said awhile back about Swasey being a VERY good speed and agility guy and an OK strength guy. As you listen to the interview, Fox says his goal is to get stronger, so because of that he's chosed Pete Bommarito to do his strength training. Baby J on the other hand says he wants to get faster, and therefore is working with Swasey. 2 different guys with 2 different focuses and goals, and therefore 2 different approaches on getting there. Once again Truth, thanks for the "good" word.

2. Arthur Brown. I was thinking about when he first came to UM and Glenn Cook was being interviewed about which of the new guys were impressing him. He immediately said Sean Spence. He then went on to PRAISE Spence. Manny then asked about AB and his FIRST words were, "He's raw. Its going to take some time."

When Glenn Cook can say that about you, we should've already seen the writing on the wall.

HAHAHA!

U have been accepted!

Thanks for reading the Space!

Now, we gotta get working on that posting thing...

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

BG, if Fox needs to get stronger something's wrong with our S&T program, not Swasey. Either he needs more training or they need to bring in a strength specialist. That's just ridiculous.

And Cook's words were prophetic, although I along with others hoped AB had a steep learning curve but I guess it was too much too fast, esp. the Mike.

CCC You know it. Great part is they run a Valentines special $99 for two peeps includes two filets, Salad, scallops or crabcakes, two sides and dessert!!

Their chocolate molten cake is gangsta!!

You cannot beat that.

We went last year and it was a great meal as usual.

The bill usually comes to @ $250 for two regularly so it is a great deal.

Glenn Cook was raw after 8 years here. F that dude. No one should ask that dude anything about football. Still pizzes me off....

GO CANEZ!!!!!

Canez1

Umike stick with it.

Gonna be a bytch at first. Do your best and make sure not to over do it.

Just throw a chair under the bar and use your legs for help. You will feel yourself getting stronger and use the chair less over time.

UMike,

I've done it twice. You'll be doing 10+ by the time the first 12 weeks are finished. BTW Plyo became one of my favorite workouts, while yoga is the one I hate the most. In order to get the most bang for your buck, you have to commit to the diet. I dropped 46lbs.

Good Luck

UMike

Canez1..thanks for the support...i think i might have to go that chair route lol....i got 1 1/2 months left of the Insanity program..i also added push ups at night and curls to try and build my arms so that when I start the p90x i will be ready...I got till the middle of June..thats when the wedding is..im determind to have a nice body by then..or at least be slim lol

UMike - diet is everything. You drop the dead weight from your body, things will be a lot easier

Focus on balance in your body, not just the beach muscles

As 8th man can attest, just like a lot of dudes I know - yoga isn't easy, and neither are pilates - but at first they just thought it was something chicks did. Meatheads laugh at it - real athletes know what's up that have trained with it

Your body is similar to a tree, the strength comes from the base and core

Body weight exercises are the best if you truly want to see just how much "strength" a person has

Don't over train either, b/c you'll be doing yourself no good. All the hard work you put into it, will just be wasted

And make sure you stretch

Seriously .. stretch man .. you stretch, you lengthen the muscle, less chance of injury, you get stronger as well, and you don't look like a fireplug that can't lift his arms above his chin

Great 60 times for Benjamin, Miller and DVD, and the Canes also have other fast guys, like Brandon Harris, who did not post times there. This speed is a big upgrade over the two years ago, and the Canes have posted more people on that list than any other program. These improved 60 times remind me of Manny's post-Spring-testing articles on Swasey where he shows the upgrade and progress of the recent recruits. These Canes are like the Canes of old in terms of speed, and Regis on the shot put is impressive, too.

The Canes really have a lot of talent coming back all across the board. If they play up to their potential, this will be a special year, the Canes will be back in the NC discussion, and a new streak of first-round NFL picks will return again soon.

Canez1

My fighting weight is about 235 so I am a little over.
