To all the bloggers out there in Canespace the UM Athletic Department and I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Now, I know that a few of you somehow managed to be really nice all year long while others were being completely naughty, but all Miami Hurricane fans deserve at least a glimpse at a very special Hurricane Holiday wish list that I have put together for the 2013 season.
- An ACC title in any major sport (baseball, basketball or football).
- A year with no coaching changes and greater continuity at The U.
- A baseball team with great pitching, solid defense and a productive offense, but most of all, one that can beat the Florida Gators and the FSU Seminoles on a regular basis.
- A blog world with no trolls or haters.
- A National Signing Day that is full of talented players, good students and maybe even a few wonderful unexpected surprises.
- An offense that scores over 30 points per game, can run the ball with power and speed and can pass the ball down the field effectively while being efficient in the red zone.
- A basketball team that plays with good fundamentals, fewer turnovers and fouls and more rebounds and points.
- More consistent and improved play by Stephen Morris where the play book is wide open and the game plan is to win games from the position under center not simply to play not to lose.
- A healthy Reggie Johnson to dominate in the paint and propel the 'Canes to many ACC wins.
- A good time at the Titanic Brewery followed by a fun time at a packed Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field followed by a trip to the College World Series.
- A football team with a defense that is aggressive and attacks their opponent and is much more like a solid brick of sharp cheddar and not so full of holes like aged swiss cheese.
- Pretty cheerleaders wearing orange and green that yell and scream and bounce all around
- Hurricane fans that are positive and hopeful and encouraging to their team and each other.
OK, I know I was doing fine right there up until that last wish but hey, a guy can hope, right? Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
