I don't give a damn what number He wears, the kid has a cool name, Nantambu...Akil...Fentress!!!

Montreal-Cane

Miami has the talent to win this tournament and go to the big dance in 2013.

CaneRock

Is my comment bar the only one that's taking a long time to appear?

Ucane

Actually,
2nd-since the first 2 post were by Mr.GURU!!!
THE"U"

The What

The basketball team should be improved from last year. I think with the NCAA stuff behind them (in the sense of no more surprise suspensions), the team should make it into the tournament. Coach L is legit. He will have this team playing hard.

Go Canes

Wow listen to Clinton Portis today on WQAM

That's what I figured, Thanks.

Interesting pic there Soup

Our basketball coach looks like a ghost on that photo

roachcane77

I don't care WHAT he looks like... look what he's done already!

Let's Go Canes!

LB

Fentress was actually featured in the CanesAllAccess series for his special teams play. Nice dude.

4-Real

What has he done roach???

86Cane

Skool...I am doing some research on Sea Turtles and their nesting and protection in FL so I came across these pics and decided to use them. The second one is from Hawaii, notice the black sand.

LB

Those turtles are wonderful.

LB

Soldinger on Carter:

""Who? The kid who [is built] like Tarzan and hasn't done anything yet?" Soldinger responded in a room filled with Carter's teammates. "What about Jamal Carter? What's he done? Third team All-Dade? That don't mean [expletive] to me."

"I'm not going to let him get away with thinking he's better than he is," Soldinger said. "Because he can be pretty special if me and Lamont can kick his [expletive] into shape."

It looks like Carter is in good hands.

LB

I just watched Mike James talk to ACC reporters via the 7th Floor (http://www.seventhfloorblog.com/) front page. Every time he speaks, I like him more and more. Charitable, personable, hard-working, and transcendent. He is easily my favorite Cane on this team, and definitely one of my top 5. He's going to do nothing but succeed.

And 8 the touchdowns behind Lamar Miller is just the ice.

TonyCane

Are those pictures of Gamera?

Ohio_Cane

LB, there's nothing not to like with Smiley. His mother (RIP) raised a GREAT human being. Love seeing, hearing, and talking to people like him. The epitome of a role model. So proud of him as a fan.

Old Skool

Now I understand. I thought it might be some analogy to the story of the Tortoise and the Hare or else some kind of Zen visual to meditate on. As if I have time to meditate. Although there are times when I wish I could escape to some other consciousness, particularly when the proctologist is snapping on his latex glove.

TampaTom

86 - you had it all wrong on VH

Hargreaves has been a strong Gator lean for a while and has even been encouraging a local QB to go to the Gators

All your wonky wink wink means nothing and for sure your many proclamations that he was going to be a Cane were dead wrong

Try again

Ohio_Cane

Tampa Tom - VHIII will be a Cane on NSD. That is all.

Now... U try again.

Ohio_Cane

PS - Remember when Tracy Howard was a "strong Gator lean"?

U see where I'm going, I'm sure.

You do realize that NSD is February 6th? The season hasn't even started yet.

Furthermore, there is a possibility that a transitional team with an unproven QB in the expanded SEC could very well fall flat on its face... as in under .500.

At Texas A&M, Tennessee, and FSU.
Home vs. South Carolina, Missouri, Georgia, and some purple team down in Louisiana.

There is the little issue the Gators have with Mr. Muschamp's recruiting in Florida which has already bit him in the rear end more than twice...

...amongst other things.

herbieibis

Well Ohio, I hope your prediction is right about Hargreaves because a month ago I too, said HarGreaves would be a Gator and Was told we had it locked up. The one thing about Howard he never verballed to the Gators and yes there is time to switch things up. I personally think he has been a Gator lean the whole time. We can go after Robinson or Alexander. We might as well go after another RB too, no way Collins ends up here. What about the Woodley kid or Chestnut? We need an early signing period to cut out a lot of flip-flopping.

3G Cane

Hopefully Collins comes to his senses and realizes the U is the place to be. Would hate to see a talent like that go elsewhere.

Ohio_Cane

Herbie, I agree that I don't think Collins will be a Cane in the end.

3G Cane

Ohio-Take that back!!! lol

Felipe

Considering the non-committed guys out there in Coley, Cunningham, Thomas, Alexander, Bain, McQuay, I guess I don't feel too bad if VHIII sticks with Gators.

Also, Muschamp? Srsly? That era isn't over yet?

herbieibis

VH3 saw to much comp. in DB backfield.

solarcane


talking with a Clemson fan that I see at different jobs,

I forwarded everyones thinking that there is no reason to go to Clemson because there is nothing to do there.
He put it in perspective,
maybe great players come to Clemson because its a football town and they are football players.
Kids go to miami so they can dik around at the beach and cruise in to the NFL on former players coat tails

His parting shot was classic

"Your most valuable player last year was your punter, the one guy that could bail you out
The only starter you have on the All ACC team this year is let me guess.. your punter. "

Hard to make a snappy comeback when the other guy is dead right.

LB

"deon bush ‏@deonbushlive2
@BOSSMAN_QUAY 2 top Miami committments what you waiting for bra!! "

How is He right?
Didn't we WHOOP them the last time we played.
How many NCs do they have to show for being a "football town", with "football players".

Willie Will in Nashville

I don't give a damn what number He wears, the kid has a cool name, Nantambu...Akil...Fentress!!!

Posted by: CaneRock | July 26, 2012 at 10:47 PM

And he's a hometown hero in my book. He goes to church right down the street from me where a lot of my family members are members. Great kid with great parents!! Hopefully he gives me some tickets this year lol

Some people never learn.

That is all.

Going to see a Miami Hurricanes game? Check this out. Pick any row/section of seating before hand and get a virtual view from those seats. Pretty awesome!

The What

A top ten recruit committing on twitter is like a rebound relationship. You do it to feel good and dump em as soon as you are ready to move on.

Not really kid is a dick and who said this?

Remember that Miami has more former NFL players than Clemson could ever dream of?

Didnt someone hang 60 up on Clemson?

I should be scared of Clemson? Yeah right..

Also anyone here ever been to South Carolina? Just checkn because last time I was there I was racially profiled and pulled over for going 1 MPH over the speed limit, got hated on by a bunch of douche bages wearing Clemson gear because I was rocking my all white "U" tee shirt and my girl happened to look 4 times better than his. I hate South Carolina and most importantly I hate the state troopers that prawl the interstate desperately seeking a speeding citation. South Carolina is nothing more than a pass through to better things such as Georgia and Florida........

They state makes money of their elusive speed tickets and drugs that they seize on I-95 which are in many situations illegally obtained through "racial profiling". If you are black, or bi-racial driving a nice car, then be prepared to be pulled over unless of course you are like me now and travel with traffic through that terrible state.
Tell me again why a kid would want to attend school in South Carolina? By the way if you are involved in an interracial relationship then I would not recommend venturing into SC either. Had a bad experience with that as well....

Go Miami! O by the way we still got more all around talent than they do....

Excuse the typos in a rush headed out the door! Peace on my brothers!!!!

Six

I remember a couple of recruits in recent years that were strong Croc leans, verballed to them, even showed up at one of their basketball games and was seen doing the Croc chomp to the applause of the students

Then they flipped and became Canes

NSDay isn't tomorrow on July 28th ... it's a little longer away


And what local Tampa QB is VH3 trying to get to go to UiF with him? Litton?

You're f*cking high. Chase is a die hard Cane fan, kid said it would be his dream to be a Cane

U are telling the truth my man! See above previous post as to why I agree with u! Ask your co-worker how many NC's Clemson has won?.......
crickets.........

Thats what I thought and then ask him hey didnt someone hand up 60 on yall last year?

Sh!!!!!!t, it was WORSE!, they gave up 70 to WVU in the Orange Bowl game. But I agree, PHUCK! Clemson. That is all.

86Cane

GainesvilleCanesFan AKA "ClemsonSucks" stay off of our blog. Please. Thank U!

Ohio...feel free to take out the Trolls.

orange 'n green in the vein

Now Six, you may have boots on the ground and there may be some very valid points being made here about the former Hurricane linebackers coach's son, but I just don't know how UM's going to get around that new rule the NCAA put in that says tweets in late summer are now binding and unalterable on behalf of a prospective student athlete?

Ohio_Cane

86, sorry, I've been kinda busy the last couple hours. Just catching up since the last time I posted.

LOL, and Urban flipped and chunked His phone. Screw the Crocs, I'm glad they got Matt Patchan.

Ohio_Cane

Exactly how much boredom does it require for U to troll another teams blog? Serious question.

86Cane

Ohio, Solar and OGV...check email.

Ohio_Cane

86, done and replied to all.

j.w.

Damn, one guy's retirement means more difficult and challenging work for me. And to think I thought I always wanted those assignments! Really I do, but didn't expect to get it overnight.

Olympics opening...There's nothing like some good british rock

86Cane

The comment some people never learn was directed at the trolls.

j.w.

ahh, now I understand! :)
Montreal- the one part of the olympics that I
ve never cared for are the ceremonies. The closing is something I'm more likely to watch, but never cared for the opening. Show me the events and I'm usually into it.

Montreal-Cane

Just saw Lebron in the US delagation

solarcane

canerock elliot calm down and read the comment a couple more times...

you aren't supposed to be afraid of Clemson the football team, you are supposed to realize the dude is talking about Clemson, Tuscaloosa Boise and all the other schools kids go only to play football, not get paid to hang out in strip clubs and make SI a billion dollars a year in magazine sales while dedicating a couple hours a day to being Miami Hurricanes

Sorry neither one of you got the guys point, he is dead on.

If you are dylusional enough to think
CJ Spiller,Terry Kinard, Da'Quan Bowers, or Sammy Watkins wouldn't have started on any of our national championship teams well keep rockin your 2001 jersey and jumpin around to your Destiny's Child CDS.

solarcane

soup checked my email

aight then

and triple ohio's salary

canerock, elliot,
I didn't mean to come off as big a nozzle as i sounded in that comment, I knew what the Clemson guy was getting at and I agree with him. some crapholes with nothing to do turn out some pretty decent football teams you gotta admit.

im out

Willie Will in Nashville

Solar,

I'm ohio's agent sir. But good to see you back tho lol

What has he done roach???
Posted by: 4-Real | July 27, 2012 at 07:38 AM

4-Real... Didn't you read the article?

"In 2012-13, Coach Jim Larranaga and his staff will begin their second year at the helm in Coral Gables. Having posted a 20-13 record and an appearance in the NIT (second round) in his first campaign, Larranaga was the first Canes coach to open his UM career with 20 wins.
Miami finished the season tied for fourth in the conference, a program-best, and registered Miami's first-ever winning record in the ACC (9-7)."

I'd say that's a fairly decent start... give him a little time. (We're not exactly a basketball Mecca after all... ) YET!

TampaTom

Below is a post from another site. No matter what happens, anybody that thinks we should get even USC type punishments is insane. Maybe we get screwed, idk, but poster makes sense abt bucknutz and tar heels misdeeds and they get wrist-slapped

***************************

USC loses 30 scholarships, Penn State 40. Both Ohio State and UNC lose less than 10.

USC's roster is capped at 75, Penn State 65. Ohio State and UNC are around 82.

USC missed out on two bowls, Penn State four. Ohio State and UNC have a one year bowl ban... In spite of coaches playing ineligible players, lying to the NCAA, serving as a runner for an NFL agent, academic fraud dating back to 1999, Booster involvement, and extra benefits received by multiple players at both schools.

Both USC and Penn State received harsh punishments - Which was my only point - but the same can't be said for Ohio State and UNC, considering the breadth of wrongdoing at both schools.

I knew where your friend was coming from, I get your point.
And my point is, that Miami's won 5 NCs despite not being a College town.
And yes, I'll continue to live in 2001, I have NOOOOOO problem with that...AT ALL! 2001 was the standard, Boise,Alabama, and especially Clemson, DON'T COMPARE!

solarcane


alright canerock I respect your loyalty.
I've been a Cane fan for 36 years
I choose to root for the current team, "this year's model" if you will.
Everyone feared Attila The Hun and his team too, how many championships have they chalked up lately?

roachcane77

Ahh Solar... It's great to have you back, dude.
