Wet Your Pants Tour II
July 22-24

Whitewater rafting on Section three of the wild and scenic Chattooga River.

Sightseeing in the North Georgia Mountains.

This is the less intense more user friendly section of the Chattooga River than Section IV that the WYPT crew ran last year.

This run has spectacular scenery and plenty of chances to go ashore to wade, swim, take photos and eat.

Visit Helen, Anna Ruby Falls, Unico State Park, or just kick back Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Arrive Friday afternoon and stay through Sunday morning at our home in the beautiful North Georgia mountains.

Mrs. Solar is setting the limit to 6 guests staying at our home this trip.

There are very reasonable hotels and the fantastic Unico Lodge less that 15 minutes from our house. If you stay at a hotel or share a room, you are still welcome to eat at our house and hang out.

The cost of the all day Saturday white water trip, including lunch is 100 dollars per person which goes to N.O C. to rent our raft(s) and provide our guide.

If you stay at our house it's a 30 dollar donation per person which pays for your lodging, snacks, full real home cooked meals, and your transportation to South Carolina and back. ( maybe)

Friday night appetizers

Sat breakfast, Sat Dinner, Sat late evening snacks

Sunday breakfast, snacks to go for the trip home.

Iced tea, coffee, and soft drinks are on us, haul in any beer, wine, energy drinks you would like.

We need to have our rafts reserved and paid in full by June 23ed.
You can get a full refund up to July 16th if your plans change.

This is a wonderful chance to spend some time together, share experiences that will be life long memories, and get away to the mountains.

I hope to see you on the river and on the front porch this July.

I hope we whup Ohio State by as many points as tattoos they traded memorabilia for LOL

Six

I hope Jacory gets used to sitting on the bench


On another note - rumor is that Shane Rowland is transferring from Miami?

If it's true, gotta be something serious for him to do that, esp. since his dad won a ring with the Canes as a player back with the Wizard of College Baseball

And before anyone rags on his stats this year - he was a Frosh catcher that was surrounded with an inept assistant coaching staff who have obviously shown just how well their player developing skills are. Gotta get Yaz Grandy out of your head as well - even Yaz didn't have the kind of stats his Frosh year that blew people's minds

Rowland knows how to play baseball, it's not only in his bloodlines, but when you watch him behind the dish - the kid is good - he's a hell of a lot better defensively and won't have to work as much in that department as just getting hits. He works the count well, fouls off pitches he doesn't like a lot. Kid has a cannon arm, even as a Frosh - when you're throwing the ball to 2nd base in the 1.7 second range, you've got a nice freaking arm

SOUP

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

Love your site BTW. Post a link here?

Six there are issues with the baseball team. I told you guys way back some things I heard from my high school friend who sent her son to FSU instead of the U. She being a huge cane fan but her problems were not so much with coaches but players themselves and there influence on her son, wink wink.

Montreal-Cane

On another note - rumor is that Shane Rowland is transferring from Miami?

I cannot believe that Rowland played for the Canes in the first place...Morris and his coaches better get their act together for this upcoming recruiting class otherwise they will all be out before they know it. Jim Morris doesn't have much left in the tank...It has been very sad to watch Canes baseball since 2008.

Big Daddy Cane

Coach Morris just missed his opportunity to re-define himself at the right time IMO. All great leaders go through a re-branding and I just think he missed his chance. similar to Coach K in 1995, Roy Williams in 201o, Mack Brown this year. Some guys just know when its time to re work things....he just missed his chance.

Big Daddy Cane

BTW SOUP, those were some big hits on the photos above.

Six

canechic - there might be character issues with some of the kids, but my main concern is with the coaching staff and the decline that has happened over the past 4 to 5 years with it. Like I said, when a kid whose dad played for Fraser and won a ring with him is ok with his kid getting the hell out of there .. something is up

Montreal-Cane - you know a lot about Rowland and watched him consistently? or are you just going strictly by his batting average this year

He wasn't too far off Yaz Grandy's hitting stats as a Frosh in some categories, and Yaz was a pretty damn accomplished player in college - ACC All-Star, ACC Player of the Year, 1st Team All American, 1st Round pick (12th overall)

Rowland had better defensive stats than Grandy did in their Frosh years, 10 points higher in fielding % - Grandy is a more accomplished hitter in average, slugging, homers - over a hell of a lot of other players, not just catchers .. I mean damn, Grandy hit .401 in 2010

Rowland is a kid that was an Aflac All-American, excelled in a wood bat league over the summer, was in the Connie Mack World Series a couple of times, numerous scouts said he was the best defensive catcher out of High School in the nation and pro ready on defense - even in high school, it took him a while to heat up at the plate but the kid has it

Anddd if he does transfer, then who do the Canes have on deck to take his place

Rowland is not a kid that you want to leave your team


Six

Rowlie also had offers from South Carolina, GTech, Arizona State, Vandy and SoCal

His pops winning those rings with Fraser when he played at Miami in college might have had a little influence on Shane heading to Miami

BTW SOUP, those were some big hits on the photos above.

Good report OHIO.

SOUP

Considering the recent lack of tight-end production, the program that once prided itself in difference-makers such as Bubba Franks, Jeremy Shockey, Kellen Winslow and Greg Olsen is hoping Ayles can provide short-term star power.

With rising sophomore Asante Cleveland sidelined this spring with an apparent shoulder/arm injury, and junior-college transfer Chase Ford struggling in 2010, UM coach Al Golden said Tuesday the Canes wanted Ayles out of “No. 1: necessity.’’

Last season, three UM tight ends combined for 21 catches for 236 yards and one touchdown.

“We didn’t have quite the depth we wanted there,’’ Golden understated. “He did a great job in the offseason program and looked really polished for a guy who is just starting with us. He did a great job with his routes.’’

Six watching Rowland all year he didn't improve his batting at all. Behind the plate he is a small target because of his small frame. Morris lost patience with him in the regionals. I would be curious to know the real facts regarding his transfer.
Six do you think it's time to replace the coaching staff? By Miami standards i think so.

Congrats to Ti’erra Brown

DES MOINES, Iowa – University of Miami senior Ti’erra Brown is a 2011 NCAA national champion after her outstanding performance in the 400m hurdles Friday night at Drake Stadium.

The Hampton, Va. native circled the track in 55.642 seconds, just 0.004 seconds ahead of UCLA’s Turquoise Thompson. The win is the first national championship for the now six-time All-America performer. She became the sixth woman in program history to win an NCAA Outdoor National Title.

Montreal - I've said the Canes assistant staff has needed to go for 4 or 5 years now ... really, after Gino was the last to leave and Morris tried to replace them with some different people

Who the hell is the hitting coach? Who is the primary fielding coach?

Where is the player development been in either category in the past 4 or 5 years

Shane being 5'11 185 doesn't really mean much behind the plate, defensively he's a stud and like I said, several MLB scouts and publications had him rated as the top catcher coming out of high school in the nation

Offensively ya, he struggled. He was a Frosh, he'll get better. He was 4th on the team in Walks and 5th on the team in Strikeouts. He put the ball in play at least

Morris needs to fire the staff and then look at himself

Think about it this way - just like Leon Searcy said in the U Documentary ... Erickson was handed the keys to a Porsche and told not to crash it

Fraser did the same with Morris (Brad Kelley for that one year didn't really count). Morris never even went to the CWS while at GTech (although he did improve them and they went to a Regional in his final 9 years there '85-'93) - then he comes to Miami in '94 and goes to the CWS 6 years in a row and wins it in his 6th year?

What, all the sudden the light switch turned on for him to go to Omaha like that? Or, maybe he had a really good coaching staff behind him that had built a baseball machine through good recruiting/player development and he was the head coach of that

It's been a decade since the last title

CWS since 2001:

2003 - Miami got knocked out in the 2nd Rd

2004 - Miami got knocked out in the 2nd Rd (and beaten by a guy who I think is actually better than Morris - George Horton - who won it all that year with CSFullerton)

2006 - Miami got knocked out in the 2nd Rd

2008 - Miami got knocked out in the 2nd Rd

Mom was a Cane cheerleader. Chase loves the Canes, always pimping Cane gear. He's around 6'4 or 6'5, can't miss him. His family adopted Shawn Vanzant, the point guard for Butler University. Chase said that the only school in Florida he'd go to was Miami - his other 2 schools he likes are Rocky Top (b/c of Peyton Manning) and Oregon for some reason

The Manning brothers are pushing hard for Chase to come to their camp

Talking last night to some of my Miami tailgate buddies who are of course much more optimistic than I......anyway my questions to them:

Who kicks and/or punts?

Who is playing linebacker? (and the first person who says Futch gets squashed like a bug)

Who is playing DB?

We know we have serious QB and WR issues....so without quality player (and by this I mean at least ones who try) for the positions above, the canes are pretty much screwed.

None of them really had any luck answering my question and I believe it took the optimism notch down a level. Reality sometimes bites!

Thats exactly my point Big Daddy! Doesn't matter if ur good or not just pay ur $55 and ur in :)

dj moonbat

Who kicks and/or punts?

Art Kehoe.

Who is playing linebacker? (and the first person who says Futch gets squashed like a bug)

We're going to play a 4-7, so we won't need linebackers.

Who is playing DB?

Hmm. Futch? That's one guy...just need six more, and we're (pardon the pun) Golden.

We know we have serious QB and WR issues....so without quality player (and by this I mean at least ones who try) for the positions above, the canes are pretty much screwed.

I hear Andre Johnson is at Golden's camp. Maybe they can make HIM an offer. Also, Jacory is really pumped up for this next season, and I bet he can keep it down to 2.5 pick-sixes per game. If not, Morris can do it.

I hope the players take responsibility for their actions. You work hard and play hard and one day they will pay you to play hard. If not at least your degree will be worth more than an ex-seminole or ex-gator player. If you do play well at The U then you will get paid better in the NFL than an ex-seminole or ex-gator.

WindyCane-Forecast1

Love that Golden is using multiple football camps not only to let the prospects know who the new Canes coaches are, but more importantly, for the coaches to see which recruits distinguish themselves in a controlled, competitive and rigorous workout environment.

This should allow Golden to have a better idea as to which recruits might thrive on competition and which will fit what these coaches want in players. Florida has so much talent that many under-the-radar prospects will always go unrecognized and end up having great college careers and make it to the pros.

Golden's camps are a good way for the coaches to actually eyeball recruits themselves, and make sure that the recruits have the measurables advertised (size, speed, agility, quickness, etc.) and minimizing the number of wasted schollies by getting players who should be capable of developing and contributing.

I like the way the 2012 class is shaping up. I also think that a few 2011 recruits might surprise.

Things to like this year on the field: Toughness- new workout regimine. Also, Kehoe with the intensity and FSU hate.

I am sending the info U posted about the prospect to Golden, Carroll and Desai. Seriously.

On the "Canespace will pay for it" part, unfortunately we can't. We already offered to pay for FOUR under-privilidged kids from the 305 to attend but UM compliance said that MAY be a recruiting violation so we were not allowed to do so.

It was actually Solar's idea and we were gonna send the $$$ in for "scolarships" to the Camp, but they still said no under the potential that it could fall into the "unfair benefits" category even if UM selected the beneficiaries so we were denied.

Oh well we tried!

When I SEE that a kid is fast and crazy good against VT then I will believe.....until such time it is just practice. All of these so-called "experts" telling me for the past couple of years telling me these players are "fast and crazy good"........

I will just tell them physical tools are fine and dandy but if you have nothing upstairs.....

Again waiting and seeing is the route I choose to take! :)

This is how I feel about the loss!

Talented DE commit to THE U


Vero Beach (FL) High School DE Dwayne Hoilett didn't have a single scholarship offer entering this spring.

By the time the spring ended he had over 20 offers.

And on Friday he got the offer he coveted most: The Miami Hurricanes. Today he took that offer and committed to coaches.

"I grew up with Miami being my favorite school," Hoilett said. "I committed to coach (Al) Golden today. I said this is where I want to be, that when I was younger I loved the Hurricanes and I'm committing. He was happy, said I'm a great player athletically and character-wise, that I have all the intangibles."

Hoilett lists his most recent offers from Purdue, Rutgers, Illinois, Michigan State, Minnesota, Vanderbilt and Kentucky. But he says he now has eyes for no one but Miami.

"It's 100 percent done," he said.

His goals as a Cane?

"Just athletically and physically, academically make sure I do well, do what I can on the field and produce, win a championship," Hoilett said.

There's a reason why Hoilett has landed so many offers after not having any just a couple of months ago.

"He had very limited film, was a part-time starter last year because they ran a different kind of scheme and had three good defensive linemen they used that all signed on signing day that were bigger inside type guys," first-year Vero Beach High coach Lenny Jankowski said. "He played in their (four-man) fronts. It was just the scheme of what they were doing."

Jankowski says UM has a tremendous talent on its hands.

"He has tremendous athleticism, tremendous potential," Jankowski said. "He's had an unbelievable off-season from the time he got out of basketball and through spring practice. Everyone that has seen him participate in spring practice, all the college coaches have offered him. He just did very, very well for himself."

Last year Hoilett had 45 tackles playing part-time; in this year's spring game he had a pair of sacks.

"He's very, very talented, is 6-3, 220, has run 4.6 at different combines," Jankowski said. "He's going to have an unbelievable senior year. I'm excited for Dwayne and think it's a win-win for both him and the Hurricanes.

"It's great he committed. That's his dream school. Growing up in Vero Beach the connection with Miami is very, very strong - we've had Kenny Holmes; Randy Bethel is a coach in our county that played at the University of Miami. There are some very serious roots here with the Miami Hurricanes. So Dwayne grew up a Miami fan. He's excited about the new staff and worked hard for this opportunity."

While Hoilett is an end in high school he says at UM "I'll be a hybrid, outside linebacker and defensive end, wherever they need me."

News, notes from USF Sling and Shoot 7-on-7

- Chase Litton is tall, lanky, but throws a nice long ball and had lots of USF coaches all over him

- Vernon Hargreaves (Jr.) is an athlete, kid has crazy quicks, reminds me of Lamarcus Joyner

- Austin Roberts (son of Alfredo Roberts) was doing nothing today

I felt like an egg on a 150 degree hot plate out there


And if anyone in the 813/727 ever saw Gionni Paul play the last couple of years at Lakeland Kathleen, then they'd already know why 86 is happy about this kid. He was all over the place last year at the 7-on-7 camps held at USF (Badger and Sling and Shoot)

CB Davis Commits at UM Camp
Coral Reef cornerback Vernon Davis has been a prospect who has been accumulating scholarship offers throughout the spring.

Coming into the third session of the Al Golden Football Camp, Davis (5-10, 170) was still without an offer from the hometown Canes and looking to impress the coaches.

“I was actually getting a haircut when the coaches called me,” Davis said. “I finished that up and then I went over there to show what I can do. I did pretty good and I shut down some of the top receivers at the camp. There’s always room for improvement but I was happy overall. It was competitive and everyone was on their grind. I don’t know his name, but the kid from Georgia that’s committed already (Jontavious Carter) looked pretty good.”

Davis, who had 25 tackles and 4 interceptions as a junior, had a strong enough performance that he picked up a Miami offer.
“It was very exciting and I had a big reaction when I heard that,” Davis said. “It wasn’t really a shock but it’s really good having an offer from Miami. They didn’t really tell me (before) they were going to but they said I should come out to show what I can do. I performed and I got the offer after that.”

On Sunday afternoon, Davis gave his verbal commitment to UM.

"Yes I committed," Davis confirmed. "Everything about the 'U' is special. I got a great connection with Al Golden, Paul Williams, and the rest of the coaches--all of the 'U' family. And my mom likes it."

Davis got to spend a lot of time with Coach Williams, from whom he’s been able to pick up a lot of tips so far.
“I got to work with the defensive backs coach, Coach Williams, and we have that little connection,” Davis said. “I had met him before at my school so it’s good to have that (connection). He’s a real technical guy and he’s all about getting things down pat.

He always pushes you to the limit and doesn’t let you slack. If you’re not working hard, you’re going to hear it from him. He’ll push you harder than you should be so you can be the best."

Davis also played receiver this past year where he hauled in 32 passes for 649 yards and 6 touchdowns as the Barracudas finished with a 6-4 mark.

Davis is the 14th verbal commitment for UM in the 2012 class.
