Herbie wins the Derby!

Tracy Howard for Heisman!!

Hassan...great job on the article as usual.

I will see U at the FHSAA football playoffs on Saturday, 12/15/12. I'll be at both the 1 PM and 7 PM games for the 6A and 8A title matchups.

86Cane

OK, let's talk Legends of the Fall. Here are the nominees for 2012:

Offense: Stephen Morris, Mike James, Phillip Dorsett and Jon Feliciano.

Defense: Eddie Johnson, Denzel Perryman, Brandon McGee and Olsen Pierre.

Freshman: Duke Johnson and Deon Bush.

Who do U think deserves it most in all three categories? Should there be more than one (maybe 2) in each category?

B.McGee, the kid really turned it around this season. I like the fact that He spoke up for Himself after getting demoted.

##I would add Gunther to the defense though, kid was not only good in coverage, but He played PHYSICAL! in run support.

The Dude

Anyone think that somewhere out there, there is a political blog that is constantly interupted with Miami Hurricanes comments? Ha ha!

Old Skool

Dude
You mean a Miami Hurricanes filibuster?

Ohio_Cane

Offense: Sorry, but Freshman or not, it's Duke

Defense: EJ's suspensions aside and I'd pick him. However, since we have to count that as part of his season, and Denzel was injured for multiple games, neither get my nod. That said, dropped INT's and all, I'm picking Brandon McGee.

Freshman: Duke, obviously.

WWIM

86,

I think most people forgot what LOF is really about. Isn't it suppose to be about players that you think would have a surprising season????

I don't think anybody didn't know that duke was the best freshman on the team before the season started

CaneRock

Offense, I'ma go with Stephen Morris, like AG said, He was hot as hell the last 3-4 games. As good as Duke was as a Freshman, Morris had more of an impact in our 7 wins, than Duke did.

raizecane

Golden needs to put that fense up and quick. I see too many names going to other schools that are in our back yard.

86Cane

Ohio...I get what U are saying about Duke os the offensive LOF but since he is a lock for the Freshman award then I would like to try to get another player mentioned and selected on offense.

Unless it maybe looks like this?

Offense: Duke

Defense: McGee

Freshman: Bush

j.w.

two from hassan in a week, keep them coming!
86- isn't that kind of like when the Sporting News named Dickerson the MVP of the NFL and Marino the Rookie of the Year (both were rookies)? I think we should have two Rookie HOF, call one the Duke Johnson award (best freshman but for the fact Duke is also a freshman). :)

WWIM

I have to agree with Ohio, duke should be LOF on offense bcuz nobody expected him to be able to be what he was already. Or Mike James

Freshman LOF goes to Bush hands down. Everybody expected duke to be good as a freshman but nobody expected bush to play like he did.

WWIM

We should have freshman LOF for offense and defense

panamacitycane

Offense morris
Defense mcgee
Freshman bush

We all knew what duke could do..but there is something about deon bush I just love..he seems to be around on every play unlike the other safeties. I think he coukd be another ed reed type with some more time and experience.

86Cane

Willie...I agree on the freshman LOF, one each, so then maybe:

O: Morris or James or Dorsett

D: McGee or Johnson or Pierre

F: Duke and Deon

WWIM

86,

Are we just picking the best players or the real LOF's???

WWIM

^^^^^

Based on the real system SH77 would have to definitely be on the list

86Cane

Willie...the players that had the best season, period.

WWIM

^^^^^
86, I thought it was suppose to be sleeper picks???

Olson Pierre? http://www.hurricanesports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=28700&ATCLID=205558810

WTF did he do this year compared to Chickillo?

http://www.hurricanesports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=28700&ATCLID=205558425

Nothing! There is no way Pierre can even be considered for DLOF with Chickillo's production this year Charlie Brown. Want to try those nominees again? The linebackers missed too many games, McGee was the best of a bad secondary, so it's choose the best of the worst, Chickello or McGee on defense this year. Green gets a small consideration for leading the team in tackles.

Pierre, lmao!

herbieibis

Offense: Morris & Duke (tie)
Defense: Bush
MVP: The Duke

Good one, didn't think about Him. That kid has battled through a lot.

Gin & Tonic

Offense - Morris; He stepped his game big time, especially toward the end of the season.

Freshman - Duke; No doubt the player is special and will continue to improve.

Defense - The winner of this award has had his award vacated due to being ineligible due to claiming to belong on a Hurricane defense. Who in the name of Sean Taylor, Ed Reed, Ray Lewis, or Jon Beason, Colin McCarthy, and even Sean Spence can be named a LEGEND after this defensive performance.

FOR MONTY'S EYEYS ONLY:

After a two-week layoff, the University of Miami women’s basketball team returned to the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. The Canes comes in at No. 23 this week, matching its season-best ranking from the second week of the 2012-13 campaign.

Miami was bolstered by a 69-65 win over then-No. 6 Penn State. Senior Morgan Stroman paced the Canes with 15 points and a game-high five steals, while fellow senior Stefanie Yderstrom scored 13 points and dished out a career-high tying seven assists.

After the loss to Miami, Penn State fell four spots to No. 10. Miami rival Florida State also entered the rankings at No. 24. In all, the Hurricanes have 10 games against teams that are ranked or receiving votes in the latest poll.

Miami returns to the hardwood Monday, as it takes on Alcorn State (0-5) at the BankUnited Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.

2. Pierre, lmao!

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | December 03, 2012 at 01:45 PM

1. That is true, I also forgot about him and he DID lead the team in tackles. Has to be him or McGee?

2. That one was just for U and your best buddy Mark D'Onofrio.

VA C, I hope you woke up today and used the strength your mom helped instil in you when she raised you to do what she would had wanted you to do, face the future with the generosity and care for your fellow people that you've exhibited in your past. I'm empathize with you that you never got a chance to say goodbye to your mom and tell her how much she meant to you during her time here, but that doesn't mean what she did share and teach you to develop and rely within yourself is gone now either with her unexpected passing.

When and if you feel like blogging such an inconsequential thing as the game of football, I'll be looking forward to reading your posts here again and if not I understand completely and appreciated everything you contributed here in the time you did spend posting. All my best to you good sir.

CGNC

Nice article Hassan. Any idea on the disparity between the SEC and their TV association and what other conferences get? I imagine it would be significant

86Cane

Willie...U are confused again. Let me break it down for U:

1. The LOF at the END of the season is ALWAYS the players who had the best season.

2. The selection process for the LOF by the fans BEFORE the season is where U are supposed to be creative and not just all pick the best player who is MOST likely to have the best season.

orange 'n green in the vein

Bush is in the same boat as Perryman, shoo in LOF finalist who got nicked up too much, but he looked great out there for an 18 year old, reminded me of a Kenny Phillips type of safety, good skills and can bring some sting from the secondary when he dials in the carrier.

McGee can only win this thing if you consider the DB's the better part of the problems on the entire D compared to the DL. The LB's were the best corps on the entire defense for what amounted to a a rotating mini-MASH unit but there was no year long anchor there that this bad defense is basically the only facet even barely worthy of LOF status. So to me you have to pick your best DL or your best DB that played all year on such an overall bad unit, while holding your nose.

The Dude

Offense: Morris
Offense Freshman: Duke
Defense: Ed Reed
Defense Freshman: Bush
Coach: Kehoe

orange 'n green in the vein

Offense is Duke over Morris in a close one.

Freshman is a no brainer, so let me be the first to offer my congrats to Dequan Ivory, bright, bright future for this young player . . . once he's switched to the offensive line after next year of course.

Coach is Jedd or Kehoe in a nose, since Jedd's the QB coach if Morris is the LOF on O, he'd have to win that, if Duke is the LOF, got to go with Kehoe since his corps set the table for both players.

86Cane

Go back and read the LOF selection process and comments from bloggers and be prepared to LOL:

O_C, they're the worse ever, nothing good will be said about them now, or 50 years from now, when and if their records of ineptitude are broken by D'No's grandkid who is hired by Al's grandkid when they come from coaching football at Drexel and barely getting over .500 in two seasons out of five, nothing good will be said about the coaches either, unless they get fired for their production and someone who turns it around in a hurry is hired in their place or if by some blind squirrel finding an acorn every once in a while MIRACLE, Al backs into a national title like he did an ACC title game berth opportunity this year.

670 days of sour Kool-Ade chugging is not too appetizing for the palette, huh?

Offense: Morris

Defense: The hot blonde camera person from raising canes

Freshman: Duke

If Duke isn't on the O list then I'd opt for Morris for LOF on that side of the ball.

That means Duke is the Freshman winner

Sorry, but the only think legendary about the D was the lack of it this season. In that case give it to the game clock which is the only thing to limit the yards gained by the opposition!!

I don't disagree in the slightest the defense was terrible. I disagree with it still being talked about. It's over. Done. Can we TRY to move on to next year?

I promise, if the defense is even close to that bad next year, U can complain ALL you want without any comments from me.

Sorry I've been away for a while. We're planning a benefit for a historic theater in my neck of the woods. Saw the new commit.

Defense is old news. I'm mostly curious about the 1. kicking replacements and 2. the fourth non conference opponent.

Old Skool

CGNC

Actually, the disparity goes the other way
the SEC takes in a little less per school, however, that should change now that Mizzou and A&M have been added. On top of that you can add all the bowl percentages.

You'll find the info and where I got it below.


http://collegesportsinfo.com/2012/05/10/2012-ncaa-television-revenue-by-conference/

15 years, $3.6 billion, ESPN (through 2027)
Annual: $240 million
Average Annual per School: $17.1 million
Note: ACC also expected to take it’s own share, bringing the average per school annual payout to $16 million per year

15 years, $2.25 billion, ESPN (through 2024)
15 years, $825 million, CBS (through 2024)
Annual: $205 million
Average Annual per School: $17.1 million

Canes OOC schedule looks very winnable this year.

After about 8 years we will be relevant and in the hunt next year. If we can win against the Gators we will be in the national title hunt. Even with the loss we are shaping up to be in the hunt for a BCS bowl.

These PHUCKIN! recruiting sites don't know what the hell they're talking about. I was talking to a Big 10 commit who said He had 28 offers, including Miami. I go take a look at a site, and it only showed like 10 offers, and no Miami offer.

I have a great feeling matthew Thomas will be a cane

orange 'n green in the vein

You're asking to move onto next year when the entire way there is going to be one big question about the worst historical defense ever to take the field at UM and how is it going to be improved, do you see the problem there in trying to squelch the major issue with UM's football program on a blog for fans who are by nature, going to focus on that major problem and possible solutions to it? You might as well say, nothing but basket and baseball talk until spring practice at least, get 10 posts a day at the most every day, but then at spring practice, guess what the major topic of discussion is going to be again 86? Yes, it's tedious, but that's the fact of the matter now, just like it was a tedious 12 games this year to watch that unit take the field. This is the lens that UM football discussion is focused through for the time being and the team has itself to blame for that, not fans who want to discuss the team in a realistic manner, looking back or forward next year. Since you did ask nicely though I'll see what I can do for you 86.

Barrow has a pretty good case for coach LOF if you add in recruiting to the mix, which I have no idea whether that's going to be considered, but again, this year, it has to be an offensive coach just by the numbers accumulated by both sides of the ball for the team.

I also want to say that's probably the best back-to-back UM focused blogs ever on Canespace in a long time, Hassan makes some great points in this one in particular in regards to the abandon you'll see if coaching moves being made by flush with cash AD around the country.

CaneRock

OGV, the only defense I care about, is how Golden defends His temporary-absolutes...oh wait, maybe His quotes are absolutely temporary.

Like "We're not gonna use youth as an excuse", and when ww proceed to get drubbed by KSU, "not gonna use youth as an excuse", turns into, "KSU has some grown men".

Or how about the "Recruiting to your core values" one. That sounds all good and well, if your 2 of your best players getting suspended, is part of your "core values".

Mcginns ale house

For ogv...
Las Vegas
"Biggest overacheaver of 2012 Miami"
A real big surprise of how well
Miami played in 2012 they were only
expected to win 5.2 games overall and 3.2
games in acc play. But they finished 7-5 and
5-3 record. Miami went 9 and 3 against
the spread with a very young defense that should
be favored in 10 games next season.

Mcginns ale house

Give our team a little credit instead of the constant beat down !!!!!!!!!!!!

Mcginns ale house

We are lucky to have golden. Keep up the negatives
and we will end up with Paul Johnson or skip holtz
But I am sure that some fans want to be negative
and it has its purpose sometimes. BUT NOT ALL

a lot about football and very well may love the hurricanes.
but your constant attack of them is not helping in this
crucial time.We all want nc's but we have to walk before we
can run. Let them grow they may make you
proud to be hurricane!!!!!!

Bashing D'Onofrio doesn't bother me at all. Most of it is funny and well deserved. If its related to Canes football, I want to read it. I just hate it when shit gets personal between two bloggers because the posts cease to be about The U. Right now, its all about U Tough and recruiting. What do we know about workouts and potential Freshmen?

The Dude

Who are the Seniors next year that will lead the workouts? Who will go beast mode in there and come out all yolked up?

Dude.. If you were referring to me and ogv
I respect him a lot just voicing my opinion for what it is worth.
As far as news :::: the new commit to me looks
awesome on film::: I also like the fact that we are
Getting aggressive towards Coley with the in home visit.
We have also made great strides with the ely db Robinson
I think ( maybe can flip him from lsu)

I actually disagree, The award is basically for the best players. I think if we want to do what you say we should rename the award of have a separate award for "Dark horse' player of the year. obviously your starting QB or RB etc are expected to play a huge role on your team and have a good year, so that is why those kind of players get picked for LOF same for D. but your 3rd WR or some other guy could be a "Dark Horse" if he has a bigger role then expected heading into the season.

orange 'n green in the vein

Mcginns, hope you got some of that sweet, sweet spread action, if gambling is legal in your current state of residence.

If not, who cares what Vegas set the line at to get even action on both sides of the wager, I'm concerned about the final score. Win, don't be favored, in 10 games and it'll be something noteworthy, the rest is just for entertainment purposes only, much like recruiting websites. If you're seriously pushing the opinion that, "Golden is the best Special K could get at UM," as a fact, I completely disagree with you but you're welcome to fetish-ize his game-day sideline apparel to your hearts content. There's guys in the stadium that sit in others front row seats that made a whole trend of that and thanks to two games against BCC don't look like complete dopes at this point for such buffoonery after all. Why would any recruit worth his roster spot put any weight to what some fan writes about what they can see with their own two eyes when they can read what Tracy Howard (or his mom), or someone ACTUALLY ON THE TEAM THEY MIGHT PLAY FOR has to say on Facebook or Twitter?

Laughable reach for a justification for stifling of any criticism, deserved or otherwise, of coaches paid beyond handsomely to sell the program no matter what is being said by others whoever they are, yet it's trotted out every single year in the lull between season end and signing day as if the fans owe even more to the coaches to make their job easier when they spend money to do so while also ironically providing that handsome pay going into their pockets directly and indirectly of those same coaches by attending games when they decide to and giving a care in the world otherwise.

True that, but as a Coach, you can't make statements like, "You can't train to your core values, you have to recruit to your core values"...that's a HALF-TRUTH if I ever heard one! It's not one or the other, it's BOTH! You have to recruit,AND,train to your core values. When players that YOU recruited (Johnson and Scott) get suspended towards the end of the season, then it makes people question what your "core values" are, IF that's what you recruited towards. But that's all water under the bridge now, I'm sure AG knows next time He's thinkings about making a comment like that, He'll say it to where He'll give Himself some wiggle room.

1. Yes, it's tedious, but that's the fact of the matter now, just like it was a tedious 12 games this year to watch that unit take the field.

2. This is the lens that UM football discussion is focused through for the time being and the team has itself to blame for that, not fans who want to discuss the team in a realistic manner, looking back or forward next year.

3. Since you did ask nicely though I'll see what I can do for you 86.

1. Yeah, I finally figured out that I don't like tedious, or repetitive or monotonous either. Your constant rants about the UM defense are all of the above. Like I said we ALL get it, now let's move on.

2. No, that is YOUR lens and it seems very narrow and to suffer from a reduced depth of field. Do not assume that is the lens we are ALL looking through, that would be a false assumption.

3. Once again PLEASE and THANK U!

Simple fact MOST people are negative Nanncy's, chicken littles ect.

- I have said all year JUDGE THIS COACHING STAFF AND THEIR PLAYERS AT THE END OF NEXT YEAR! Every coach in the college game should get his four years before getting fired, period.

Defensive line. Keith Bryant is our only commit. Do we have any prospects that we should be looking out for?

"OK, let's talk Legends of the Fall. Here are the nominees for 2012:

Offense: Stephen Morris, Mike James, Phillip Dorsett and Jon Feliciano.

Defense: Eddie Johnson, Denzel Perryman, Brandon McGee and Olsen Pierre.

Freshman: Duke Johnson and Deon Bush."

Offense: Morris (I said James)
Defense: McGee (I said Perryman)
Rookie: Johnson (I forget my pick)
Coach: Fisch (I said Richardson)

LB...that list looks about right based on the comments here and their performance on the field for 2012. I will follow up today with a new article on the 2012 LOF.
