Willie Will in Nashville

What a first??? I can't believe it, its really been a helluva day.

Just left the hospital wit one of my players that broke his wrist this morning in our state tournament which probably cost us the game, then on the way home a car in front of me ran over a guy on a motorcycle and ran, then I come home and get a first????

Wow Willie Will. What a day for you :\

Willie Will in Nashville

Cgnc,

Bad thing is my day is only half over

The Wizard

Willie Will, I have been fortunate enough to be "first" 2 or 3 times I believe and have requested that my Canespace shirt be donated once to Hassan and somebody else (can't remember) that was posting from overseas in the military. I asked that they wear it safely, proudly and finally home one day soon. Can't wait to donate another. By the way, a happy Mother's Day to all the moms that frequent the space. I lost my mom 3 years ago to cancer. I miss her dearly.

The village people are mad that third tier football rights were sold instead of basketball rights so it's favoring the NC schools. They're right, but the fetid corpse of the Big 12-3+1 isn't much of an improvement over the ACC and they should have known what was in the cards when they joined back in the '90's.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - With its 4-0 victory over No. 37 Utah on Saturday at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center, the 11th-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s third round for the seventh straight season.

Playing at Nos. 1 and 2 singles respectively, seniors Anna Bartenstein and Gabriela Mejia won their matches simultaneously to clinch the victory for the Canes.

And so did Spence,fortson and aj4

SJMPARMAN

On Jacory. Bad news he graduated in recreational sports will be near you in a park soon. j/k. Saw 30-30 earlier tonight, don't wish to say anything bad on current kids. But those were some different players back then. They didn't aim as low as our recent players. Nothing less than being the best was what they expected and demanded of themselves.

CEO

GURU...why were those players NOT listed by UM as receiving their degrees?

FROM WWW.HURRICANESPORTS.COM:

The No. 21 Miami Hurricanes returned to Alex Rodriguez Park for game two of their weekend set with the visiting Wake Forest Demon Deacons, dropping the Saturday night contest by a final score of 7-2.

After cruising to an 11-0 victory in game one of the series, the Hurricanes bats fell silent against Wake Forest starter Jack Fischer (4-4). The team managed only seven hits off Fischer in his career-long seven-inning stint, as the Deacons took advantage of a six-run third inning to take control of the game early.

Though it looked like junior lefthander Steven Ewing (5-2) was set up for another strong start through two quick innings of work, the Deacons (28-21, 10-16 ACC) exploded for five hits and six earned runs in a decisive third frame. After Ewing opened up the inning by hitting the first two Wake Forest batters, the southpaw built some momentum on a well-fielded bunt from Pat Blair to get the lead runner at third.

On the very next play covering first base on a groundball, however, Ewing slipped up and fell near the bag, leaving Conor Keniry safe at first and the bases loaded. After taking some time to test out his ankle by throwing extra pitches off the mound, Ewing remained in the game. The Deacons then connected for three straight hits off the Orlando, Fla. native, including RBI singles from Mac Williamson and Chris Lopez. A big two-run double from Jack Carey gave the Deacons a commanding 6-1 lead entering the fourth inning.

UM and FSU to Big 12 sources are rumbling. The ACC contract blows, only 1 mill bump until 2021, the Carolina schools can sell thier b ball games. Very bad deal for the ACC

IraqiCane

Damn...

pbcfrcane13

Big 12 would be AWESOME!! UM FSU TEX OKl OKie State.....wow, but I will believe it when I see it.

TheWhat

UM and FSU to big 12 would make it stronger than the SEC. Can't Miami move its football to the big12 and keep all other sports in the ACC? That new ACC contract sucks when compared to the other conferences. Would love it if it happens.

For anybody who wishes UM could replace their replacement as the go-to private school, just another reason to laugh at how pathetic their overrated conference dominance was and will always remain and why you should always remain above such low thoughts. Barkley = nothing but over-hype.

The second best modern era UM AD is dead. At least he never lived to see the blow-back from his Mr. $300,000 at Southern Cal punishment delivered to his former athletic department.

CEO

WURD ON DA SKREETZ IZ:

1. This boi had a few parents slide through. Each and everyone of them said Al and staff members wotkin even harder then last year gettin the Cane name back in every conversation in every hood.

2. Straight up, I dont know if that pimp took a llittle vacation to catch a breather yet. Of course he knows as fans know, that he needs to get Miami back to bein the CANES and not peoples b!tches.

3. He really has put every part of himself to get Miami on top. Pimp is 100% dedicated to every detail.

The What

Golden must be in the top 3 of hardest workers in CFB. Have I said I love this coaching staff lately.

RIP Paul Dee

Could you do me a favor and explain what you are saying. I'm sure there is interesting content, I just don't get what or who you are referring to.. Maybe I'm just slow, but you have a stream-of-consciousness writing style which I find impossible to understand. But I do want to know what the heck you're saying, because I think I might agree, I just don't understand it in the slightest.

Also, and I'm not trying to be a smartass here, but the occasional use of punctuation might help.

CEO

FROM THE CLEVELAND BROWNS WEB SITE:

When it comes to new Cleveland Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin, there is a consensus of opinion on his top attribute.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pounder’s most noticeable skill is his speed. In the past, he has run the 40-yard dash in under 4.3 seconds and got the defensive backs he worked against during the Browns’ rookie minicamp to play off the line of scrimmage in order to stay with him.

“He had a nice day (Friday) and he found a way to get himself going today and he made some plays,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Saturday. “He learns well, you can see he can bring it to the field and I think he’s got the skills necessary to be a player in this league. I don’t know about being blanketed. We ran go-routes and guys were lined up about 15 yards deep. If somebody said, ‘Okay, I’m going to run down the field’ and you back way off, I think you can cover most folks. His speed shows up extremely well.”

New quarterback Brandon Weeden has enjoyed testing the defense by throwing down the field to Benjamin.

“He’s freaky fast,” Weeden said. “The guy can really run. Coach Shurmur said, ‘Hey, let one rip on a vert.’ A single-high safety is not really our read. He said, ‘Let one go and see if he can run and get it.’ I did and it was incomplete, but the guy’s got another gear.”

Last fall, Benjamin caught 41 passes for 609 yards and three touchdowns and averaged 14.9 yards-per-reception in his final season with the Hurricanes. For his career, Benjamin caught 131 passes for 2,146 yards and 13 touchdowns and averaged 16.38 yards-per-reception over his time at Miami.

“The biggest adjustment is coming in and settling down, don’t overwhelm myself, don’t think about the long run, just think about the right now and take everything play-by-play,” Benjamin said. “I was just trying to get practice one over with, get in, compete, learn the plays and just get used to the system.”

CEO

Who is the QB coach with the Cleveland Browns?

LB

Whipple.

hassan

Briscoe passes,his ACT he is a go to come to UM

Q

Mark Whipple. I believe he is a MAJOR reason why they drafted Travis Benjamin. Head Coach Pat Shurmur believes he can challenge for a starting WR spot

CEO

If Whipple is the QB coach with Cleveland then WHY did the Browns choose TBen in the fourth round instead of Streeter?

Can someone please explain 2 me why our staff is always the 1st to offer the unknown kids and the last to offer the all Americans?

LB

"Can someone please explain 2 me why our staff is always the 1st to offer the unknown kids and the last to offer the all Americans?"

Just a hunch:

The staff's process of identifying and evaluating recruits is highly extensive. On field play, technique, and overall physical prowess is probably just a minor part of the picture. UM, being a private school and top 50 institution, has a higher acceptance rate than the normal shut-down-the-law-school-on-Thursday-and-Friday-for-a-Saturday-night-game-couch-burning-university (WVU).

Not every meatball can get in. The staff also evaluates character and background (in the wake of the Shapiro nonsense, who wouldn't)? The Tie also has a certain type of player he's looking for: tough, disciplined, and someone who's coachable.

That being said, that's not always the case. Duke was a Cane before he hit junior high, and he's All-Universe. Chickillo is 3rd generation.

Al Golden came from freaking Temple. I can't overemphasize what that means living in the heart of Big East country. Temple was an easy win. It got chucked out of its own conference. This is the conference with Pitt, WVU, Rutgers, and Syracuse... not exactly bastions of greatness in the NCAA. He knows what he's doing. Not only did he get that awful Owl program to consecutive 8 win seasons and a bowl game, but produced a first round draft pick and a boatload of others. Golden was forced to look through the cracks and be careful about everything.

Now he's at UM... the market for high school talent. It's already produced a 1,000 yard rusher, awesome special teams, arguably the comeback QB of 2011, and remarkable fundamental shapeups.

Now imagine that man with his players at our school.

Posted by: CEO | May 14, 2012 at 09:39 AM
---------------------------------------------

Oh, it's working. LOL

I've already answered this question too many times. LB pretty much summed it up though.

CEO

4-Real...OK, now seriously let me give U an example of why. Let's take the case of highly recruited 2013 LB Michael Deeb.

The other day Hassan posted a comment here saying that Deeb loves UM but that he would ONLY attend one of Golden's camps IF he got an offer FIRST. Let us assume that Hassan's 411 is true for the sake of this arguement.

Well U see that is NOT the way it works under Golden. High school players do NOT dictate the terms of the agreement or arrangement between coaches and players.

For example as Da Skreetz has indicated to us MANY times Golden has them play at several different positions to judge their overall athleticism and football skills at camp. He promises NO one that they will play X or Y position at UM. They have to be flexible, versatile and be willing to play where needed or where coaches think they will best perform and help the team.

If player XYZ tells Golden: "I am only gonna play at MLB" or "I am a Guard not a Tackle" or "I don't block I am a star RB" then U can cross that player right off of your five star prima donna list because he will not get an offer to play at UM.

Golden wants TEAM players that are solid people with principles and values who are also versatile football players and who are hungry, humble and coachable. Some of those players will be 4-5 star players and IF he can find them he will.

He does NOT want any 4 or 5 star prima donnas that are suffering from a severe case of entitlement mentality who are all about ME, ME,. ME and not about The U (see Storm Johnson).

Next question?

CEO

4-Real...there is ONE other reason that I'll mention just in passing because Da Skreetz would kick my azz if I didn't:

IF Golden or UM compliance has ANY reason to suspect that a high school player has been "comprimised" or has "gotten dyrty" at any point during the recruiting process, from transcript fixing (See FSU) to accepting gifts (See Alabama) then UM will NOT touch him for ANY reason.

And I mean ANY reason. There are two specific examples I could site but I will not name names for obvious reasons and due to coinfidentiality. But IF U look at the FSU and the Bama rosters U might figure ir out.

Oh and BTW, is the NCAA going to look into the car that Sammy Watkins was driving around the Clemson campus when he got busted with the hooch? Or will the NCAA just puff, puff...pass on the Freshman offensive player of the year?

Yeah, I thought so.

LB

"If player XYZ tells Golden: "I am only gonna play at MLB" or "I am a Guard not a Tackle" or "I don't block I am a star RB" then U can cross that player right off of your five star prima donna list because he will not get an offer to play at UM."

I'd say that's one of the reasons why Golden likes Mike James so much... he does everything well. He played fullback and tailback. He catches and blocks. Dude's a player.

herbieibis

Yeah, but this is not Temple, this is the "U", he don't have to look under cracks and in crevices for players. I do agree that you leave no stone unturned in looking for talent but offering kids with very little pub about them is telling me he knows he can't get some more highly sought after prospects. I realize we can't sign every high ranking kid we go after and we need a back up plan, in case we don't get someone. The downside to all this if these lower ranking kids start jumping on these offers, 1 0r 2 studs that we really need will be left out because the ships will be gone. I like what Golden is doing but what we really need is a QB, that can get us over the hump. Our QB play has been dismal, for ever!

4-Real

Thanx Herbie

Ohio_Cane

I don't wanna say I'm surprised, but I kind of am, at how many question Golden's recruiting tactics/techniques after this past amazing class that's headed to Coral Gables...

I mean, seriously... Tracy Howard, Malcolm Lewis, Deon Bush, Duke Johnson, et al.

1. Can't get or don't want? There is a BIG difference and U do not know which case applies to each individual player. Sure some are "can't gets" because they favor other teams, or may want to play in the SEC in general or because of the looming NCAA sanctions. But do NOT assume that every player UM does not land is a "can't get" some are VERY much "don't wants".

2. U are correct that there is an inherent risk involved in the process but that risk is manageable to a certain degree.

3. Once again U are correct! We need a GREAT QB to get us over the hump, not a "game manager".
