The NCAA is killing us with a slow, agonizing, "death by indecision."

Posted by: roachcane77 | December 10, 2012 at 06:56 PM

Dude go play some golf, get outside and relax. Do U think your constant hand wringing over the NCAA investigation is going to improve things?

U need some serious time off hiking, biking or kayaking. Oh, and BTW, where can I do that in your neck of the woods? No really, Me and my wife would love to hook up with U and yours and do some OUTDOOR activities sometime soon!

Damn it!

roachcane77

LOL... Sorry Soup, but I'm just ready for this NCAA BS to be OVER ALREADY! How are we going to get the studs we need to come here until the FINAL decision is handed down already?

Anyway, bike trails ABOUND over here. Some real nice ones in Venice recently opened. The ones in Englewood aren't quite as scenic, but do exist. Good kayaking all over... Here's a good starting point not far from me.

Another good site JUST "yards" West of I-75 off Exit 191 is Snook Haven. (Campground & boat launch.) It used to have a nice little restaurant & live music, but the County has evicted the old vendors there, and are in the process of renovating it. (Not sure when that "restaurant" part of it reopens.)

My wife & I are booking out of here for the holidays to meet up with my daughter, son-in-law, and 14 month old grandson, but after the New Year we'll be around.

Hey Roachcane. What's really frustrating about the NCAA taking so long is they're being childishly spiteful with it. Here's a good question. Who's the most hated by canes fans, the NCAA or D'Onofrio?

j.w.

Hello everyone. Saw three of our pro Canes yesterday, fun times.

longtimecanefan

7 spot, had a 5 earlier today....

AnthonyJManis aka Antcane

Niether,its the whinne cane fans. Give it a rest. I've been coming to the space for at least two years and got a first and no shirt but you don't hear me compliang. LOL

AnthonyJManis aka Antcane

complaining sorry.

roachcane77

I personally hate the NCAA more... they are more devastating to the OVERALL program, and national perception of our school.

D'No's just wrecking our D.

roachcane77

And Antcane... What you call whining, I call having a high standard and refusing to accept mediocrity and unfairness. JMHO.

Interesting Cane trivia:
The Miami Hurricanes played the SECOND indoor game EVER...against whom?

Posted by: CaneRock | December 10, 2012 at 06:05 PM

Temple.
They lost 34-0 in the auditorium in Atlantic City,NJ.
An estimated 3 million square feet of Pennsylvania black dirt had to be hauled in to make a grassless field.
Interesting gesture, the Canes players gave the Temple players coconuts before the game.

dj moonbat

The Herald is reporting that D'Onofrio interviewed for the Temple HC vacancy. I think I speak for all of us when I say I've got my fingers crossed for him.

JCane

The U actually did many things that most folks don't know first. They were the first major southern university to give an African American football scholarship (Ray Bellamy, I think 1966, with Pres. Stanford not allowing the band to play Dixie prior to the 1968 season, and many southern schools refusing to schedule the U after signing Bellamy). A few years later, the U was the first to sign a woman for an athletic scholarship in the country, if memory serves, in the early 1970s for golf. Many huge breakthroughs from this private little university that unfortunately appears to be stereotyped in other ways.

Nice to check in here. Hope all is well, 86, Solar, etc.

Terrance Sullivan

I didn't know Eddie Johnson was from my old stomping grounds of Selma, Alabama. And of course LG is from Montgomery. Hope my Canes can grab some more players here in this state of Alabama that I call home.

Truth

I'd rather go undefeated and not go to a bowl game due to sanctions than having D'no swiss cheeeeeeese nofense. Ex. Ohio State. Have a real coaching staff. I pray for Temple to hire him! We deserve better.

Terrance Sullivan

86 are you ordering anymore Canespace shirts?

86 are you ordering anymore Canespace shirts?

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | December 10, 2012 at 11:06 PM

Yes, I am completely OUT. Which is the reason for the delay in a few shirts still owed. I have a box sitting in Ocala's coffee shop but I have no access yet as I have not headed uo that way recently.

86Cane

Winter Haven...Fort Pierce...Miami...Homestead.

Lead, follow or get outta da way!

usagainsttheworld

It doesn't matter what happens to D'Onofrio if we aren't able to recruit some horses at the DT spot. As of right now our only DL is a 210 lb DE. Awesome news.Posted by: DTease Please | December 10, 2012 at 04:20 PMAnother great post...I'm not hearing about us getting the REALLY big, mean, DTs that we are SORELY lacking. The kids on our team NOW are "progressing" under U Tough, no doubt... but they're NOT the studs we really need to shore up our porous D.I'll give D'No THAT... we're lacking "physically" up front..

There it is right there!

Let's pray for Brandon Harris who was registered to the new England burn unit last night.

LB

"Let's pray for Brandon Harris who was registered to the new England burn unit last night."

That's awful. I hope he's okay.

Let's all slam Heather Dinich. Not only did she leave off Duke, but she tagged UM in the column. What a load of crap!

I'm pretty sure Sinister didn't mean that literally, LB.

He got torched by Brady, Stallworth and others last night.

Check out #4. That's my alma mater, and where I live now. Pretty awesome!

LB

I know. I'm fluent in sarcasm. :)

Rumor mill: Quinton Powell (Gator decommit) has UM in his top 3 and shall visit per ESPN.

Is Knighton projected to play offense?

Ohio_Cane

Eddie Gran leaving FSWho. Losing a good recruiter.

Ohio_Cane

Alex Figueroa, along with Knighton, committed to Canes, if U hadn't heard.

herbieibis

I believe they want Knighton for offense. Gran leaving amy actually help us. Every time something about FSU and recruits, it's either Gran or Coley they mention.

Ohio_Cane

86, typepad doesn't like my list of Canes commits... Won't let me post a list. Someone has a name U've blocked lol

Ohio_Cane

Eddie Gran leaving FSWho. Losing a good recruiter.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | December 11, 2012 at 09:21 AM
-----------------------------------------

PS - He's the RB coach. Let's see if this helps with Alex Collins ;-)

herbieibis

They've now lost Stoops, Eliot & Gran, now if someone would scoop Coley, they'd really be hurting.
Sounds like if we could get Ray Lewis to help us with Foster we may be able to get him.

DeployedDiehardCane

Can anybody fill me in on what the status with AJL is? Is he coming or not?

No one knows for sure yet. He took ACT's Saturday, so it's possible, but doesn't look good.

Wishing for the best, hope he doesn't end up in that grooms or leggett category (grades). Kid looks legit. Thanks OC.

If these guys ain't big nasty roguish defensive linemen that can run I dont want ti hear about it!

herbieibis

Ask yourself this,
Why would they take him off the verbal list, if he was coming? I could see it if he got his graeds and they weren't good enough to get in.

LB

If AJL's grades aren't good, he'll end up at Marshall 50 miles away from me (like the other two).

Rumor mill & overreaction Tuesday: Wisconsin and UM are linked again. Apparently Golden is in their top 3 candidates.

LB

"PS - He's the RB coach. Let's see if this helps with Alex Collins ;-)"

Yes.

Even though FSU continues to play a crappy schedule, next year's is slightly tougher (Nevada and Wofford, though it still makes me chuckle). They also lose their QB on top of their assistants. Expect the win total to dip a couple.

LB

Just in case it wasn't covered previously, but Al-Quadin Muhammad (DE) from Don Bosco visited this weekend.

I wouldn't worry too much, just covering the bases.

DeployedDiehardCane

Seems like the kids that do want to be here end up having grade issues. That sux, I'd also like to see us get some DT's, doubt K. Bryant ends up here. Read some twitter blogs, apparently some of our fans been bashing him hard, that certainly won't help. I'm hoping with that rb coach leaving that puts us back in it with Collins.

Willie Will in Missouri

OGV,

You done helping D'no pack his bags yet?????

Turnabout's fair play, they need to bash His ass. Frankly, I don't give a PHUCK! where He goes...pick a damn school, STFU!, and BALL OUT!

CaneRock

And Collins will be a Cane, nothin' bout that boy says FSU or UF to me.

Papa Cane - Update On 5-Star LB Reuben Foster: AP's John Zenor reporting that Coach Golden & staff visited him yesterday. He has tentatively set up an official visit to Miami on December 18th. His football idol is Ray Lewis.

Papa Cane certainly credits the sources now, as he should.

Finnie turns himself in and is arrested and i am proven right yet again. Vindication day for me and Vilma. Take that haters

Both articles from Pete Ariz -

Stacy Coley Visit: http://canesinsight.co/content.php?946-Coley-Thoroughly-Enjoys-Visit

Sounds very promising for Rashard Robinson in addition to these 2!

Ohio_Cane

Blah....

Miami CB Thomas Finnie suspended by team indefinitely after arrest on theft, burglary charges.

Great job Duke Johnson, Deon Bush and Eddie Johnson.

GO CANES!!!

Listen. Calm down. No one was "hating on" U. No one didn't believe U.

Read this carefully... ALL we said, was don't put names to rumors.

If they're true, so be it.

What U want, a congratulations? Woohoo, Hassan was FIRST to report something bad about the team! Is the NY Times calling?

j.w.

Finnie is a fool if he really did this. I was worried about this story coming out the way it did. Damn shame.

UMike

Hassan... I had ur back the whole time lol

Tonycane

Rivals has us ranked 67, due to the low number of commitments. How high do you think Miami ends up if all things fall into place?

rumor has it...

Eat your crow you clown. One more reason for me to hate the state of Ohio.

hassan

Basically it was not a rumor. I had a good source as i always do and reported the news and got a lot of grief. I reported the news i do not pick what news comes along i just try to give my friends here the scoop. If we had had all good news i would report that but we have had some bad

herbieibis

I guess that cuts our very thin CB depth down, with Finnie's suspension

rumor has it...

hassan...no use in justifying yourself to a mental midget who throws around insults to other posters and uses big words like "libel" without so much as a clue of the true meaning of the word or how it is applied in the context of a court of law. This goes for the insufferable Cane-itis as well.

That would be Caneitis who said that. Go back and get some reading comprehension before posting about me. U got the wrong guy.

herbieibis

Poor Al, first it was Buchanan, then Henderson, then it was Robinson, then Cain, then Scott & Johnson, Now Finnie. He's probably wondering if he'll ever catch a break.

hassan

Oh well kill the messenger. But i am learning that me sharing intel is not appreciated. I have been around for years and my profession is in intelligence. One would thinkmy track record would give me some leeway. Assume what i report is correct and not otherwise. Drops mic.... Walks off.

I'm starting to think your reading comprehension is as bad as "Rumor has it..."

I'll refuse to respond to U until U recognize that not ONCE did I say anything other than 86's rule on rumors...

Assume your "sources" are always correct? LOL, grow up.

rumor has it...

I'm going under the assumption that the person posting as "rumor has it..." is a troll. If his "rumor" turns out to be true, I'll repost it.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | December 06, 2012 at 08:55 AM

You did jump on my nuts and call me a troll, though.

Right, I said ASSUME.

What would U think if U were me?

First instinct, Gator troll. Second, FSU troll. Third, random troll. Fourth, someone actually just reporting a rumor.

hassan

I do not assume. My profession is intelligence, i know what i am doing.

My comprehension is fine and personal attacks on my intelligence will not help you Ohio or anyone else.

Furthermore 86 himself for over a year posted "rumors" and still does occasionally from his "source" so please POT do not call the Kettle .black

Ohio_Cane

One of U said that Gionni Paul and 1 other (forget who was mentioned) were involved and they weren't, so someone's "SOURCES" were wrong to some degree.

That's the point of 86's rule. Put Paul and the other's name out there with a felony rumor. It's just not good practice.

Be RIGHT, before you're FIRST. Does anyone ACTUALLY care who reports the info first, as long as they get the info? I don't.

hassan

Anyways back to the Canes. I personally would weigh carefully suspending Finnie or dismissing him. I believe in 2nd chances but certain "integrity crimes" like theft are often deemed unacceptable by many organizations, Cam Newton ring a bell. I wish the best for Mr Finnie no matter what happens and give him credit for turning himself in.

rumor has it...

My apologies for lumping you in the category of ass-clown-itis. I went back and got me some reading comprehension and re-read the posts that night and subsequent day.

laquinton

hassan was right
but damn finnie. hes a gonner . people change but with a cloud over um you didnt need to pull a cam Newton on us. why steal though ? never understood
stealing though

LB

"Rivals has us ranked 67, due to the low number of commitments. How high do you think Miami ends up if all things fall into place?"

Meh, top 20.

That's terrible news about Finnie.


I'm still not too worried about the secondary, though. We get experience with Highsmith and Rodgers, skill with Howard, consistency with Gunter, beast mode with Bush, incoming talent with Burns and Carter. We've also yet to see what Hope can do.

LB

"Poor Al, first it was Buchanan, then Henderson, then it was Robinson, then Cain, then Scott & Johnson, Now Finnie. He's probably wondering if he'll ever catch a break."

At least he's got Duke Johnson, Deon Bush, Tracy Howard, and Stephen Morris!

Ohio_Cane

Hassan, I like U and I like the info U bring here, but you need to relax.

I'll post this AGAIN... Not ONCE did I attack U. I said don't put names to rumors. THAT'S IT.

U calling me the pot? LMFAO! U can't find a post where I posted a rumor and put a name to it. So don't try to pass it off to me.

hassan

Finnie was arrested previously for grand theft in 2008 getting into Miami was his second chance.... He is toast like B Harris vs. New England.


I stand by my report that other were involved. Not eehashing names they might not be charged as of yet but there was some level of involvement.

All over the medias for the wrong reasons once again...

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8736823/thomas-finnie-miami-hurricanes-arrested-theft-suspended

Throw him off the team. Some people will never understand the great opportunity they have in life. Instead they hurt other people and a football program trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This is sad. One more scholarship available for 2013.

The Dude

I reported the news i do not pick what news comes along i just try to give my friends here the scoop. If we had had all good news i would report that but we have had some bad

Posted by: hassan | December 11, 2012 at 02:26 PM

And I thank you for it.

The Dude

Finnie HAS to go. Unacceptable behavior especially considering what Golden is supposedly holding players accountable for.

The Dude

I thank Thomas Finnie for his committment to Miami and the hard work he has put in. I really felt like he was coming along. The staff should move foward to try to help this kid find a fresh start at a new school. Let the criminal system reform him, not Miami coaches. We cant baby sit our players.

MassivCane

Let us put the Finnie incident into a more positive light.

1 more scholarship for next year.

Beast London - Here's my audio take on the Finnie Situation, and @Jon_Bastian talking recruiting! Don't miss it here http://bit.ly/12jwaXo

herbieibis

Tommy boy, what were you thinking. Got caught this summer on a possession charge, I guess you were out smoking a few doobies, then this. I guess this past summer got swept under the rug and now this. You also got caught in 2008. You obviously got some sticky fingers, it just doesn't equate to int's. If you were at Flo. they'd broom this in a heartbeat, especially if you were a star but this ain't them and since you got a break this summer, I can't seeing you getting lucky again. If Al keeps you, it's only because we don't have much depth in the secondary. That might be you're only saving grace!

Montreal-Cane

Hassan and Ohio you are both MVP on this blog and i mean it. But now it's time to move on and put your egos aside. Be the best that you can be and make Canespace a fun place where we get our infos on our beloved Canes.

LB

Unless there's a wrongful accusation (it happens), he's gone. Unfortunate.

Moving on?

Ohio_Cane

Monty, to be frank, I don't have an ego. I was actually trying to calm Hassan down after he thought I attacked him, don't appreciate what he does, etc.

It's all good.

Now, where's Rashard Robinson when I need him? Lol

hassan

Where does the new scholly get used? DT or DE i say.

Montreal-Cane

It's all good.

I say both DT and DE...We will find a way to get another scholly in the next few days...
