And by the way I read the article before I posted too SOUP..

Pretty good read, JMHO though sometimes you get a little too into the football parallels.

But I'm sure its tough to find material when you have to write as many articles as you do.


Good night all!

A lot of times its not someone punting you, its a word in your post that typepad, soup, CGNC or I may have added to the spam list.
That will automatically delete your entire essay.

Think 52 weeks in a year.
1 full time writer and maybe 3 contributors.

Then think if you had 1 full time writer and 12 contributors.

I have read all the comments on here and I can tell there are a lot of very sports savy people that know what they are talking about here.
If just 6 of them wrote 2 articles a year it would be great.

Losing sucks...

On the bright side
I lov it!... Government warns of worst hurricane season coming... batten the hatches, guys we gotta stormy season ahead... This is a play on words but just go with the flow...

They're saying, as many as 14 named hurricanes and of those, 7 could be major Canes... All the way to NC !!!

Early predictions are that Hurricane Ibis will destroy AM with Cat 3 winds.

Sorry I haven't had much posting time here for a while. I wish I weren't posting about the baseball game today, although I give kudos on the nicely written article. I just can't ever remember a baseball team scoring 5 in the top of the 9th and taking a 5 run lead, including with a granny, and then blowing it in the bottom half of the innning. This could be a tough one to rebound from. Still, with UVa on the horizon there's a lot to play for.

GO CANES !!!!!!

I think if we beat UVA and FSU beats BC we make the championship game... anybody else have better information on that?

Loco

As per the ACC website

"If the Seminoles beat BC, they'll eliminate the Eagles and Cavs from the title picture."

So it would be in our hands then, we win we go, we lose Fswho goes. If BC wins though, we're done

CaneSaw - na man, sorry, didn't hear your call

I'm in the studio doing the 6pm News until about 6:45pm when I work during the week, so by the time I roll out to my car to head out to lunch, it's around 6:50 and I'll catch maybe the last segment of Marc's show on 1040


Keep pounding the phone lines, making your voice be recognized ... also, if you really want to spread your game and get your reps in, call national shows at night on 620, 1010 or 1040 if you're coming home from a game or something .. like the Tony Bruno Show (620), Todd Wright on Sporting News Radio (1010), or whoever is on ESPN that night (1040)

The more practice you get, you'll then start to get a feel for your personality and character on the radio

You know how you hear certain people and then you can tell what type of caller they'll be with how they bring it to their call, their type of humor, their type of analysis

Jim Rome has a certain style, JT the Brick has a certain style, Steve Czaban has a certain style, Dan Patrick has a certain style, etc. just like comedians have certain styles

Once you get your style down, roll with it and get noticed ... good things might come about b/c of it

Posted by: ftmcanefan | May 28, 2010 at 07:17 AM

I am pretty sure that this is a no-contact time for the kids, since it is during their finals. So, not much can happen until mid June.

Ungar

With everybody 1-1 in our bracket, each team can get in with one scenario of the four scenarios.

FSU Miami - Miami goes
BC Miami - BC goes
BC Virginia - Virginia goes
FSU Virginia - FSU goes

Since Friday's game knocks two teams out of it, we will know more around 3PM today.

Does anyone think that Martin might purposely lose just to screw over his nemesis Morris? He is known to be petty, so I wouldn't put it past him.

Our starting pitching could be based on the results of today's game. If Martin and FSU lose, then I suggest we send out our weaker pitchers since we can save our better pitchers for the Regionals.

We need to beat Virginia to get in, and that was true whether we beat or lost to BC.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

Fifth-seeded Miami was unable to hold on to a five-run ninth inning lead and eventually lost to eighth-seeded Boston College, 12-10, in 12 innings Thursday afternoon on day two of the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Championship at NewBridge Bank Park.

After Miami (40-16) scored five runs in the top of the ninth to take a commanding 10-5 lead, Boston College (30-27) responded with five of their own in the bottom half, sending the game into extra frames. Both teams were then held off the board until BC's 12th, when Andrew Lawrence hit the first pitch he saw over the wall in right for a two-run, walk-off blast.

Both teams are now 1-1 in the tournament. Miami has Friday off before playing top-seeded Virginia at noon on Saturday. Boston College will face fifth-seeded Florida State Friday at noon.

Andrew Tallman most comfortable at TE
by: Shandel Richardson May 26th, 2010

There has been talk of Tallman potentially playing three different positions _ tight end, offensive tackle or defensive end, _ but he wants to do everything possible to avoid becoming a lineman.

He’s here to play tight end.

“Personally, I think it’s too early to tell,” said Tallman, who played at Boston College High School. “But if I were to leave tight end, I’d hope it would be defensive end or something.”

In other words, he has no interest in playing tackle.

Of course, that could change once the UM coaches get hold of him. For now, the 6-5, 245-pound Tallman is working on his pass-catching skills to eliminate the possibility of a position change.

“Right now, [the UM coaches] are telling me tight end,” Tallman said. “I like actually seeing the tradition “The U” has a tight end, with Jeremy Shockey and Kellen Winslow.”

Tallman could very well find himself in the mix with the tight end position so thin. No one stood out during the spring, meaning a newcomer could swoop in and take the job.

The question for Tallman is can he progress fast enough?

CORRECT!

Ungar

Loco, true point, but we also lost two of three to FSU, and beat them when it mattered. He might figure on a

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrrhic_victory

rather than risk losing by winning.

He can "win" by losing, by seeing the Canes knocked out.

He can "lose" by winning, by seeing the Canes get in thanks to his help.

I hope he isn't that petty, but since he is a man afraid to shake hands and holds a grudge for a fake complaint for eight years, I would not put it past him.

But if BC wins, even if FSU tanks on purpose, they will have earned it, and I won't take anything away from their victory. Miranda gets the blame, even when he didn't get the loss, but BC fought back and for an 8 seed in the ACC to get to the title game would just show the depth this conference has.

Now, lets consider a hypothetical:

4 teams play round robin.

3 teams go 2-1, 1 team goes 0-3. Each of the 2-1 teams beat one of the 3 and lost to the other. How would the tiebreaker work in that case?

A beat B, C beat D
B beat C, A beat D
C beat A, B beat D.

Can't even have a tiebreaker GAME in that case. Do they go to total runs scored or something like that? A running it up on D while the other two call off the dogs giving A the title game would seem cheap.

I really don't know, and I could PROBABLY look it up, but I wanted to see some guesses here.

SOUP

From ESPN FanHouse:

5. Ohio State

* Starters returning: Offense 10, defense 6

* 2009 record (conference finish): 11-2 (7-1 Big Ten, first)

* 2009 bowl result: Defeated Oregon, 26-17, in Rose Bowl

* Toughest test in 2010: vs. Miami, Sept. 11.

Share * Fall forecast: Ohio State got "one for the thumb" last season, winning a fifth consecutive Big Ten championship ring. And with 16 returning starters, the Buckeyes are favored to capture an unprecedented sixth Big Ten title. If junior QB Terrelle Pryor's Rose Bowl MVP performance against Oregon (72 yards rushing, career-high 266 yards passing and school bowl record 338 yards total offense) was a preview of what to expect this fall, then the Buckeyes might also be playing for the BCS title. The defense returns leading tacklers Ross Homan and Brian Rolle at linebacker and DE Cameron Heyward, but the Buckeyes have to replace three starting linemen off the nation's seventh-best rushing defense as well with both safeties. An intriguing early season matchup/2003 Fiesta Bowl rematch with Miami -- paging field judge Terry Porter – will be one of the year's top non-conference clashes. In league play, the Buckeyes get Penn State and rival Michigan at home, but must travel to Big Ten contenders Wisconsin and Iowa. That might not necessarily be a bad thing, since Ohio State is 18-1 in its past 19 Big Ten road games.

Timing can be everything, especially when it comes to a prospect's stock in the First-Year Player Draft.

College catching is always at a premium. And it isn't as if Miami backstop Yasmani Grandal came out of nowhere. He was a pretty highly regarded high school catching prospect three years ago. But the fact that he's had by far his best offensive season -- and one of the better ones of any college hitter (not just among catchers) -- as a junior should end up working out very well for him come June 7.



That's when the 2010 Draft begins, with live coverage on MLB.com and the MLB Network getting under way at 7 p.m. ET.

Thanks to his superb season with the Hurricanes, Grandal should hear his name called fairly early on in the process of the first round, with the buzz starting around picks four and five.

That's largely because the switch-hitter has gone from hitting .234 as a freshman and .299 (albeit with 16 homers) as a sophomore to a .428/.552/.759 line this season.

"I think it's just maturity, growing up, understanding the game more," Grandal said. "Coming into this year, I needed to step into a role. The only way for me to take over that role was to do better than I'd done.

Former Miami Hurricanes QB Dorsey & veteran DB Carpenter sign with Argonauts

On the Season Preview teleconference today, the Toronto Argonauts Football Club announced that former University of Miami Hurricanes’ star quarterback Ken Dorsey and veteran CFL and NFL defensive back Dwaine Carpenter, former teammates in San Francisco (2003-2004), have signed with the club.

Dorsey, who has gained his pro experience over six seasons split between the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns, brings with him a very impressive college resume. He left behind a legacy at Miami that includes back-to-back BCS National Championship appearances, including a win over Nebraska in the 2001 game, and a collection of records and awards that could fill a book. Dorsey was originally drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He started 11 games over three seasons with the 49ers. He was traded to Cleveland, in exchange for QB Trent Dilfer, at the beginning of the 2006 season and played primarily as a backup quarterback with four starts in 2008.

Commented Dorsey, “I am very excited to become a part of one of the oldest and best sports franchises in history and to help create something special here in Toronto. The CFL is different than any other brand of football out there, but it is a challenge I cannot wait to attack as a part of the Argos organization. I look forward to coming to camp and competing, and helping the Argos with our ultimate goal: winning a Grey Cup."

Ohio State previews their opponents

Miami:

One of the key games this year for the Buckeyes comes from a team that gave them the National Championship 8 years ago. Miami is looking for revenge, but they're a very different team from then. Jacory Harris' arm will determine whether or not the 'Canes can stay in the game.

Star Watch: Cameron Heyward. Heyward is going to have either a really great night, or a very frustrating night, as he gets the task of defending one of the most confusing quarterbacks in the country. He has to be prepared for the good version of Jacory, otherwise he will get smoked.

Key Match Up: Terrelle Pryor vs. Jacory Harris - This one may be a bit obvious, but it certainly tells the truth. Much of the offense depends on how these 2 play. If we see Rose Bowl Pryor, expect a win for sure, but if they are both playing good, or bad, then watch out, that's when it gets fun.

Sash started all 13 games last season for the Hawkeyes and has 21 consecutive starts among his 24 career starts. He was third on the team with 85 tackles, including 41 solos. He led the team with six interceptions and had one touchdown. He was named Third-Team All-American by the Associated Press.

9. Brandon Harris, CB, Miami Hurricanes
Harris played in 13 games for the Hurricanes last season. He was tied for second nationally with 15 pass break-ups. He ranked third on the Hurricanes defense with 52 total tackles. He was selected to All-ACC First Team and was Third-Team All-American by the Associated Press.

8. Rahim Moore, S, UCLA Bruins
Moore started all 13 games at free safety for the Bruins last season. He led the nation with 10 interceptions. He was First-Team All-Pac-10 and was named the Pac-10 Defensive MVP. Moore recorded 49 tackles last season, including 36 solos. Moore is one of the best, if not the best, safety returning for the 2010 season.

7. Travis Lewis, LB, Oklahoma Sooners
Travis Lewis started all 13 games for the Oklahoma Sooners last year. He was the team's leading tackler for the second consecutive year, as he had 109 tackles. He was an All-Big 12 First Team and Third-Team All-American.

6. Jacory Harris, QB, Miami Hurricanes
Jacory Harris became the permanent starter for the Hurricanes last season after splitting time during his freshman year. Harris became the seventh Miami QB to throw for 3,000 yards in a season. He went 242-406 for 3,352 yards and 24 touchdowns and had a 59.6 completion percentage.

5. Patrick Peterson, CB, LSU Tigers
Peterson proved last year he was one of the best corners in the nation and earned Second-Team All-American honors. He always had the task of covering the other teams' best receiver. Peterson started all 12 games at cornerback for LSU and finished with 47 tackles, 38 of which were solo.

4. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon State Beavers
Jacquizz Rodgers scored 21 rushing touchdowns last season which set an OSU single-season record. He had 22 touchdowns overall for the season which tied for third in the nation. Rodgers' 78 receptions were the most by a running back in a season in Oregon State history. On a side note, he was one of the few players in the nation to have scored touchdowns rushing, receiving, and passing in 2009.

3. Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State Broncos
Kellen Moore had a very good season for the Broncos last year. He earned Third-Team All-American honors from the Associated Press. He was also named WAC Offensive Player of the Year and First-Team All-WAC after leading Boise State to an undefeated season. Moore set the Boise State record with 39 touchdowns in a season. He completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 3,536 yards with only three interceptions.

2. Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama Crimson Tide
Mark Ingram became the main man at Alabama last season, and he didn’t disappoint. He led the Crimson Tide with 1,148 rushing yards and caught 24 passes for 216 yards. Ingram played his best against the Tide's best competition last season with a rushing average of 178.0 yards per game against Bama’s four top-25 opponents. He made history in 2009 by becoming the first Alabama player to win the Heisman Trophy.

1. Terrelle Pryor, QB, Ohio State Buckeyes
Pryor had an excellent season for the Buckeyes in 2009. He went 167-295 for 2,094 passing yards. He also threw 18 touchdown passes with only 11 interceptions. Pryor should be on everyone’s preseason Heisman list, and that’s why he is number one on this list.

He will come back and play for Tennessee "IF" they give his brother a scholarship, so they can both be on the same team.

Have a safe and Happy Memorial day weekend Canespacers, and dont forget someone in our armed forces may make the ultimate sacrifice for us today.
My family has been blessed to not lose a family member in war since my great-great Grandfather Frank Barry Died of wounds in Chattanoogas Battle of Missionary Ridge Dec. 5, 1863.
Respect and Honor to all the warriors that fought and died so we can have a carefree holiday.

Go Canes!!!
