CAT5...MY MAN!

I have two UM baseball tickets for you and a Canespace shirt for your FIRST effort.

I appreciate all of your contributions to the blob. Your web surfing and info sharing has really increased lately. We all appreciate the info.

I mean U are no DATCane but you are getting close!

Esteban

Este...are U going to write up the NFL Mock Draft for the blog with DZ8?

We have NO schollies left and they would have to sit out a year anyway. That is not the EASY solution that it appears to be.

Cat 5 Cane

Thanks, but nobody... I mean nobody, beats Dat for info... The man is a maniac on the hill!

From www.hurricanesports.com:

Freshman running back Storm Johnson ran for 104 yards and a touchdown and sophomore safety Vaughn Telemaque intercepted two passes as the University of Miami football team completed its second scrimmage of the spring Thursday night at Lockhart Stadium. An estimated 3,000 fans were in attendance for the open practice.

Johnson carried 10 times and scored on a 6-yard touchdown run. Redshirt freshman running back Lamar Miller carried seven times for 63 yards and two touchdowns. He had a 44-yard TD run and 5-yard touchdown run in a goal-line situation to end the scrimmage. Telemaque and junior defensive end Andrew Smith led the defense. Telemaque's first interception came on the second offensive possession of the game. He added another one right before halftime.

Sophomore quarterback A.J. Highsmith completed 7-of-11 passes for 94 yards and one touchdown, but was intercepted three times. Junior Spencer Whipple went 7-for-9 for 75 yards. Sophomore Mike James had 12 carries for 18 yards and one touchdown.

The defense held the offense on the first two possessions. Telemaque intercepted his first pass on the second possession. Highsmith then led the offense on a drive that resulted in an 8-yard touchdown catch by Travis Benjamin.

Johnson ripped off his first big run on the offense's fifth possession. He rambled 52 yards for a first down to set up the offense in the red zone. A sack by Tyrone Cornelius ended that drive.

The defense stood strong on the next couple of possessions before halftime as walk-on Nathan Gholston had an interception, Micanor Regis had a tackle for a loss and Telemaque intercepted his second pass.

Whipple led the offense on its second scoring drive which was capped by Miller's 44-yard TD run right before halftime.

Miami then moved to red zone situations. After Whipple made a nice pass to Kendal Thompkins for a first down, Johnson ran six yards for a score. James and Miller each had touchdown runs to cap off the scoring as the offense started from the 3-yard line. James ran in from one yard out and Miller had the 5-yard run to end the scoring.

Aldarius Johnson led all receivers with three catches for 45 yards. He made a 26-yard grab on a pass from Highsmith which ended up leading to Highsmith's 13-yard run. Defensively, MicanorRegis, Cornelius, Adewale Ojomo and Allen Bailey each had one sack to add to Smith's three sacks.

and 86, on the QBs. we knew it would be rough. That's why its good they got all spring to work on what they need to work on.

Daytoncane

i've seen a lot of ugly people, and Erin Andrews ain't one of them.

i have no idea what's so unattractive about her.

and i don't care where she went to school at.

I have to agree with you Daytoncane

Esteban

Erin Andrews isn't ugly. She isn't exactly attractive either. just plain to me. indifferent. I do get the Trev Albert comparison though.

somebody once said that Dana Jacobson was attractive.

you might as well say that Suze Orman is Miss America.

Man you can't say that about EA having said what you said about Heather Dinich.

Esteban

They are slow at a number of spots.

CaneRock

I'll tell ya'll what, I don't know how this game will turn out, but I DO KNOW that Scott,Jones, and Johnson are a good damn nucleus to build around

86Cane

VT 28, UM 25 after 15 minutes.

10 turnovers for UM so far.

86Cane

VT: Delaney held to only 4 points so far in the game.

UM: Johnson and Gamble on the bench with 2 fouls each.

Daytoncane

we have been slow on defensive rotations all game, and the zone isn't exactly helping.

good news is we are shooting the lights out.

Daytoncane

DJ has got some serious springs man. his head was well above the rim on that goaltending call.

we needs some stops if we want this game. Delaney had that look in his eye like he was about to go off in the second half.

CaneRock

Speaking of TV chicks, what was the name of that chick that used to be on that NBA show with Ahmad Rashad, I always that that She was hot, I think I saw Her on TV a few weeks back, and She's still hot...

Wow, we pulled it off. Props to Haith and the guys. Who knew.

orange 'n green in the vein

Man, we're going to get stomped, or we're going to turn the program around in 40 minutes of play. bg of course will be cheering against us, but how can we lose with the alternate evil uniforms?

Of course, I'm also contractually obligated at this time to LMFAO AT SCARFACE IN THE STANDS WATCHING THAT CHOKEJOB! Meanwhile, where's his counterpart in The Randy? On the Henderson post-signing day recruiting trail?

SlingBlade

out of the 12 losses this year only 3 were by more than 10pts....this team is young and is learning how to play...and they are gonna be gooooood..

86Cane

Whoo Hooo!

Who woulda thunk it?

GO CANES, BEAT THE DUKIES!!!

Chris

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Quick postgame thoughts on Miami 70, Virginia Tech 65:

The Miami Miracle is halfway complete. Hurricanes finished last in the league but have dispatched No. 5 seed Wake Forest and No. 4 Virginia Tech. Saturday they get a shot at stunning champion Duke.
Freshman guard Durand Scott was the hero for the Canes. He scored nine of their final 11 points and made repeated big drives to the hoop.
Virginia Tech slides back into some bubble trouble. The Hokies' strong showing in ACC play is their only selling point after doing very little in the nonconference season. Could be some anxious moments for Seth Greenberg & Co. Sunday.
The prevailing question watching Miami the past two days: How did it go 4-12 in the ACC? This is a tough, athletic bunch that guards and hits the glass -- and can hit shots as well. A mystery why the Canes struggled so much in league play.

Preview of UM vs BC in baseball this weekend:

I just wanted to share my ACC Weekend Preview article on my website looking at all the teams which open up conference play this weekend.

I have also included an audio interview with me from WINA in Charlottesville where I discussed the series among other things.

Chris...welcome to The Space. Post here, post often!

Daytoncane

and that's your game right there.

as sloppy as they looked early, they buckled down and made plays at the end. and once Reggie Johnson really learns the game he is going to be good.

DJ, keep it up bro.

Duke has trouble guarding teams off the dribble, so it open up some threes when they're forced to help.

Durand Scott = BOSS

Ungar

I know some folks call the fans that post on Canespace to be... oh, let's say overly optimistic.

So, how many here are predicting a win over Duke?

And how will you react if I suggest Duke is gonna end our run in the first ten minutes of the game? I gotta go with 85-72, Duke. Cmon Haith, PROVE me wrong.

Still, those two wins get us to the NIT, right? And from there we can be the regular season underachiever that overachieves in the playoffs.

Esteban

Durand Scott = BOSS

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 12, 2010 at 04:52 PM

i endorse that statement.

i can't remember how many times he did it in a row, but he was starting his drive like 35 feet from the basket and making the shots in traffic. Scott took over.

and Johnson needs to keep working on his body. get in better shape and he'll be able to show that quickness he got (that block he had that looked like it was going to be 5th foul made me do a double take - didn't know he could move that fast). he got it in him, needs to get to the point where he can show it more often and not being too tired out.

Esteban

i don't know if we even make the NIT if we lose to Duke. Really need to look at things as all or nothing. They win the ACC tourney they make post season play. They don't they watch it all on TV.

Ungar

Esteban, I am hopeful.

20 wins, 4 quality wins, that is NIT quality compared to the other NIT teams out there.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Good for Canes basketball......

They got Duke (the team I root for when Villanova isn't looking) up next, and considering how Duke has pissed me off over the last couple years, I won't be too mad if UM pulls it off.

BG been around lately?

I got a prospect that I want his cents on......
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ki0MdvPpoJw

He was a teamate of Jeremy Davis', and runs like him in the open field too.

solarcane

"i have no idea what's so unattractive about her."

It starts right above his adams apple then just gets worse.

Except for his/her sawed square teeth, big nose, bad bleach job and way too tight, but always unappealing wardrobe she's right in the mix with Alfalfa Dinch.

CoCane

Yall know I love that shyt right...

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

I had stated before that this was one of the worst years in recent memory for the ACC in basketball

There is no reason why we cant reach out and take this thing by the throat

Why not us

Daytoncane

solar you're my boy (blue), but you are DEAD wrong with that comparison.

her and that girl from ESPN have nothing in common except that they are both white women.

Erin Andrews = BOSS

lol.

CoCane

WHAT THEY DO, LEGION?!

Maybe we were too hard on Haith. Winning makes you second guess... The young guns are starting to shoot strait. Dequan Jones woke up. If he played like this earlier, they would've won more. With Collins out, the young guns are attacking, instead of waiting on him to waste the whole shot clock to make a move. It looks like Collins was slowing them down. If Brandon Knight comes next year... ;-)

Speaking of Mr. Knight...

There's a former high school basketball star that played against Brandon Knight & knows him personally, that hangs around my apartments here in Lauderdale. He told me that Knight has narrowed his list to Da "U" & Kentucky. You never know. Stay tuned...

dayton,
if Erin Andrews is your idea of a good looking lady, that's cool. lol
To each his own

I find, big, awkward, manish face looking bleach blonds to be a little too transvestite-ish for my taste.
That's not to say I wouldn't pick her on my team in a second if a fight broke out.

There it is right there!

Aquaman

Yea but how many teams will be screwed if there starter goes down. Look at Texas in the Title game this past season.

I guess, that's my point. Do you think we have our QB situation figured out better than Texas? I highly doubt we could ask any of our backup QBs to move the ball, let alone score on the nations top rated defense in a championship game, on the fly.

Aqua...with U and AJ at WR we can beat ANYBODY. Just keep that #28 of the field. Dude needs to cut down on the doughnuts.

Daytoncane

the real questions we should be asking involve defensive players.

you can't shut down an explosive offense with your own offense.

how can you beat a team you can't score against?

Posted by: SOUP | March 12, 2010 at 02:00 PM

We got this. It'll be a two-parter... first focusing on the players from The U in early April (after Miamis pro day). Then we'll get a first round mock draft the week of the draft. Wed. night the 21st?

I think we got this... if Esteban can't for some reason I got this.

Esteban did you send that email with your post combine first round? I haven't gotten it if you have.

Oh yeah... been busy working, imagine that, but... HOW 'BOUT THEM CANES!!!

Gotta go, read the end of my email and you'll understand why

ChicagoCane

Question for you spacers....can Latwan Anderson suit up for the football team in the fall or does he have to wait a year?

solarcane

Oregon suspended Masoli for the whole 2010 season...owch


Will this hurt his Heisman campaign?

solarcane

Six LMAO!

Does that jeopardize your amateur status?
I mean you are getting paid to swing away aren't you?


JCane

Far as I know LA can suit up for the football team whenever he wants, but when he plays (or is it suits up, can't remember?) in a game he converts to a football scholarship. In other words, they'd better have a football scholarship available for him whenever the team is seriously ready for him to go.

Nice play by the guys on the hardwood over the last two games. Total surprise to me given the way they clearly fell apart the last few weeks of the season. The young guys have a lot of promise, but I still have my doubts about Haith and his preparedness/adjustments. Two good outings don't change consistent issues that I've seen. Two more good outings would change the tone of the season more than a little though... :)

Esteban
