Hmmm PETA sure is a weird name for a scoutmaster haha j/k

on a sidenote the Big east looks iffy so far in the tourney for you "Big East is the SEC of College Basketball"....Down goes ND, Georgetown got waxed by (insert sarcastic font here)powerhouse Ohio, marquette is in a battle with UW and No way the refs were letting Villanova lose to RMU. Of course with 16 teams in the conference, they should find some good teams in it. This tourney is wide open.

CGNC - My Hawks are getting beat up. Some rough plays have knocked out two of our players for extended time. They have lost three in a row.

Hossa finally seems to be getting healthy for a little playoff run. Our biggest concern going forward is in goal.

Kirby Hocutt named Forty Under 40 Award recipient:

University of Miami Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt has been selected one of Street & Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal Forty Under 40 Award recipients. Those selected will receive their awards in Los Angeles during a black-tie ceremony at the JW Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. LIVE tonight, March 18. Hocutt is the only director of athletics among this year’s award recipients.

The Forty Under 40 Awards program was initiated in 1999 to identify and honor the most promising young executives in the sports business under the age of 40. A committee of SportsBusiness Journal/Daily editors and writers selects winners.

“Our Forty Under 40 program recognizes the very best young talent from all the different segments of the sports industry, from teams and leagues, to agencies and media, to sponsors and partners,” said Richard Weiss, publisher of SportsBusiness Journal/Daily. “This year’s class is another outstanding group of young men and women who are at the top of their game and who wield enormous influence in sports.”

After leading the University of Miami men's basketball team to a tremendous run to the semifinals of the 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament, freshman guard Durand Scott has been named to the ACC All-Tournament First Team, while redshirt freshman center Reggie Johnson earned Second Team honors.

The freshmen tandem marks the first Hurricanes to earn ACC All-Tournament team accolades, as the duo helped guide Miami to its first semifinal appearance.

From the AP:

Running back Bryce Brown left the Tennessee program on the first day of the Volunteers' spring practice, coach Derek Dooley said.

Dooley said Brown told him Thursday that he was dealing with family and personal problems that included "some of the reasons why he came here." Brown was not present for practice.

"I was a little surprised, but you can only control what you can control," Dooley said. "He went through the entire offseason, but I also think that this wasn't something from the last three weeks. But I'm not here to recruit. I'm here to coach."

The Wichita, Kan., native averaged 38.3 yards in 12 games as a freshman in 2009.

Brown was rated as one of the top recruits in the nation in 2009, and his recruitment process drew a lot of attention thanks to his relationship with adviser Brian Butler.

The NCAA investigated whether money was improperly raised for Brown to visit colleges while in high school. Neither Brown nor Tennessee, who was not recruiting him at the time, were punished.

Brown originally committed to Miami, where his brother, Arthur Brown Jr., played but instead signed at Tennessee after Lane Kiffin was hired as coach.

so are Arthur and Bryce are going to join the cast of "Meet The Browns" now?

I think it is funny to hear you say you don't want either of the Brown's. When not to long ago. We were sweating there jocks hard. Fall out fast these days. LOL. And I also called it...Arthur was a bust. When many of you were telling me different. Anyway pay Randy and give him 3 years. If Mrs Shala is so great hook him up.

Can anyone give a quick rundown of this Sid Rosenberg issue? I'm a transplant, and tune into miami radio when I get a chance so I can hear whats going on, primarily for um football news. Heard small bits of a feud with Rose and now I hear Sid is out? I have to admit, I'm personally glad, not because I dislike him, but because I dislike the stereotypical NY attitude and trashtalk. Sid had decent guests, but seemed to think that attitude was his primary asset, and played on it at all times. So I log out when he comes on. After he leaves, on days I can listen online, I don't have to turn it off early anymore. Just wondering how this came about, or if it was even the product of some on air disagreement with Rose.

Best coach for Miami in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

I can't picture another coach for Miami, who will do a better job, then Randy over the next couple of years. Even with more experienced coaches like Beamer and Davis... Yes, they are great coaches but could they have gotten more out of the players in 3 years, as a HC... I'm not certain of it. Could some of his assistant coaches have done a better job of preparing the players for Saturday's?... Yeah, I think they could have, but that takes time in instilling your philosophy. It takes 5/6/7 years of repeated training and several recruiting classes to achieve consistent play from your players, as they work their way up the ladder from bench to starter.... Just like the early years with Schnell, it takes time to build a dynasty

Coaches come and coaches go, but without Randy, I don't see the team being anywhere close to the team that we have right now!

Is he the best coach in football... NO, but he is the best coach for Miami!

Aquaman

All I know is they got rid of Neil Rogers and then Sid shows up.

It's only a matter of time before Sid says something to get him fired.

But yeah, he sucks.

Canez1

QUARTERBACK
Teddy Bridgewater (Miami Northwestern)
High expectations follow this 6-foot-3, 170 pound standout no matter where he goes and the Badgers 7-on-7 event was certainly no exception. Bridgewater didn't disappoint as he easily walked away as the top performer at quarterback and nearly walked away with MVP honors from the event. Bridgewater showcased a very lightning quick release and improved arm strength on the deep passes. What isn't appreciated when you watch Bridgewater is his ability to manage the game and his intelligence to go through his progressions as a passer, whichi s much quicker than other quarterbacks at the event this weekend. Bridgewater was the top overall athlete at the event, making a big impact at three separate positions for his South Florida Express team.

Sid is all about Sid and selling his program, NY style... Spit in your face and what are you going to-do-about-it.

He's not Miami and never will be. Doesn't know jackshit about the U, except what other writers say about the program. Unfortunately, there aren't any Miamian's on the radio that I consider good.
Especially Dan "The Man" Lebashits on prime time "The Ticket", 4 to 6 pm... IMO, Dan is just as bad, if not worst, for being a UM grad and wished he would tear up his UM degree and flush himself down the toilet.

UM will hold its Pro Day a week from today at Greentree Practice Field and no Hurricane will be under more pressure to perform than offensive tackle Jason Fox.
...

Tight end Jimmy Graham could also boost his draft stock at Pro Day, although it’s questionable how much more he can improve over a solid performance at the NFL combine.

Graham ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash (4.56 seconds) among the assembled tight ends in Indianapolis and was also second in the three-cone drill (6.90) and the broad jump (10-feet even). Finally, he was third in the vertical jump at 38-feet, 5 inches.

From ESPN:

Mike Leach is far from the world he knew in landlocked Lubbock.

Instead of preparing for spring practice at Texas Tech, the former Red Raiders coach is enjoying fishing, exploring and meeting the people in Key West, Fla., where he and his family moved after he was fired in late December.

And although he sounds contented with the laid-back lifestyle in the Florida enclave, there is still much unresolved in Leach's life: He has sued Texas Tech over his dismissal, his furniture is in storage and his house in Lubbock is not yet sold.

And he longs to get back into coaching. "I've never really left football," he said in a phone interview Thursday with The Associated Press. He said he expects someday "to be back in and work at a program" that stresses graduation rates and prizes excellence on the field -- both of which he said he enjoyed at Texas Tech.

Will he wait until the lawsuit is over to begin checking out coaching jobs? "I don't really have a crystal ball on that," he said. "Take it one day at a time. That's all I can control."

From Rivals.com:

Winning a championship in a Big Six conference typically requires taking small steps rather than giant leaps.

Over the past four years, 25 teams have won or shared Big Six league championships and represented their conference in a BCS bowl. Twenty-one of those teams (84 percent) finished at least tied for second in their conference or division race the previous season.

Three of those "giant leaps" occurred in 2008. Cincinnati won the Big East after finishing third in '07, Penn State shared the Big Ten title with Ohio State after finishing fourth the previous year and Florida captured the SEC championship after placing third behind Tennessee and Georgia in the '07 SEC East Division race.

The other team in that span to make a quantum leap to a conference championship was Wake Forest. The Deacons rebounded from a 4-7 record and fourth-place tie in the '05 ACC Atlantic race to win the ACC title outright in '06.

Yep, 1 for a first down, and one for a TD.

"Jimmy Graham dropped two passes on a drive into Virginia Tech territory in the third quarter when they had closed to within 21-7 and had momentum on their side. They had to go for it on fourth-and-13 from the 33, and Harris' pass to Dedrick Epps went for nine yards."

I know he is not used to wet footballs, but it really hurt to see those drops when our TEs usually are the guys that help us come back from deficits (UM-FSU Shockey, UM-UF Winslow, etc).

Everyone remember how some Cane fans and some media at the Miami Herald were crying about Marve being suspended for the first game b/c of his actions in the off-season? Even though it was a RULE that Shannon had, that everyone knew of and it was clear as day?

How about this

There's a player for Morgan State who is suspended for their first game in the Tournament against West Virginia, b/c of an incident he had with Blake Griffin LAST YEAR when they played Oklahoma in the Tourney

So, how many media peeps and Morgan State fans are going to cry and moan about it?

Hey, it's the NCAA's rule that he be suspended for a tournament game ... their next tournament game didn't happen until this year

It was Randy Shannon's rule that if you f-up, you're suspended for the next game. Marve f'ed up in the off-season, so the next game was the opening game of the season

Funny how Shannon has the same rule as an institution as the National Collegiate Athletic Association

From ESPN.com:

One of the most intriguing prospects at last weekend's Badger Sport Elite 7-on-7 at the University of South Florida was towering receiver Kelvin Benjamin (Belle Glade, Fla./Glades Central).

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Benjamin is a typical "big" receiver who displayed his ability to leap over the top of defensive backs and come down with jump balls at the tournament.

"I have offers from all of the big schools in Florida [Florida, Florida State and Miami] and also Notre Dame, Tennessee, West Virginia and Alabama. So it's been going real good. I am just trying to stay focused."

Benjamin added that he was excited about getting offers from the Gators, Seminoles and Hurricanes.

"It was a really good experience that all three of those offers happened," Benjamin said. "It pushes me."

Early in the process, Benjamin noted that Florida State was the team to beat. Now, Florida and Miami have to be considered strong players, as well as several of the out-of-state schools. Benjamin added that he plans to visit all three in-state programs and some out-of-state programs this spring and summer.

Leach would want HC money, regrdless of whether he was an OC or HC. And we know THAT wont happen

Even if Fox has a great Pro Day next Friday, ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay thinks the UM lineman is no better than a late-round pick.

“I do think he’s showed some quickness, he’s a pretty decent athlete in terms of his balance and being able to get in position,” McShay said. “He can recover against a double move and do those sort of things. But [he’s] not overly dominant. He could stand to put on a little more bulk, certainly get stronger and become a more physical player.

“I don’t think he finishes and has that mean streak that you look for. You just wonder. He’s a left tackle, but I don’t know that he’s a good enough player to become a starting left tackle in the NFL. I think he’s going to have to settle in as as reserve tackle and maybe, depending on the team that drafts him, move inside to guard. But I think he’ll wind up getting drafted late.”

"I don’t think he finishes and has that mean streak that you look for"

Tebow is going higher than Graham. Although I could see Graham going higher than expected. Everyone knows he's going to struggle out the gate as a blocker cause he's been playing basketball. Just as long as they feel he's willing to learn and strong enough to do it then they'll just teach him when they get him. guys like McShay act as if everyone is supposed to be a finished product upon entering the NFL. And I'm not sure how he can see Fox as being just a late round guy. Sam Baker and Duane Brown were in the same category as Jason Fox and went in the first round. Never confused with dominant and more finesse types. Fox is coming out in a better overall draft than when they came out so that knocks him down some but he's going to be picked way before McShay suggest. Fox fits for what teams like Atlanta, Denver, Seattle (since they have alex gibbs now as their OL coach), Washington (since they have shanahan now who had gibbs under him and employed the same style for his OL), and Texans look for in OTs. And even teams that don't use that system always need OTs that can pass block. He just needs to show enough athleticism and footwork to make teams comfortable that he can stay at LT in the pros.

i bet if Leach was at UCLA or Cal, no one would care about his beliefs.

it's a different world out there.

The 11th-ranked University of Miami baseball team will play its first road series of the 2010 season this weekend when the `Canes visit Duke for a three-game series at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park beginning Friday, March 19.

Miami (11-5, 2-1 ACC) and Duke (12-4, 2-1 ACC) are both coming off Atlantic Coast Conference series wins last weekend, as the `Canes took two-of-three from Boston College while the Blue Devils won a pair of games against rival North Carolina.

Game one of the Miami-Duke series is slated for a 6 p.m. start Friday night, with game two set for 2 p.m.Saturday and the finale for 1 p.m. Sunday.

Yasmani Grandal enters the weekend ranked second in the ACC in hitting in conference play after going 7-for-11 with a homer, three doubles, three RBI, four runs scored and 13 total bases against Boston College last weekend.

j.w.

Dayton- Not sure about UCLA but Cal would care. They are very PC in Berkeley and that rant that you can see on youtube would have earned him a lot of enemies

Duke took 2 of 3 from UNC last week.

They're pretty good.

IMO I dont think a big name school will hire either Leach or Leavitt for awhile

A smaller school maybe as a coordinator

HC is a very long way away

i wonder will the Texas Tech fans start talking about how good their academics are instead of winning like they used to?
