Another great article on Canespace.

Nice article there, 86!

86 Gold Star for you man. U doing the Damn Thing. Between the 3 headed monster on the gridiron, and the Pimp on the hardwood, these other programs are going to be in for a world of hurt.

With the conference championships of the 2012 NFL postseason in the books, the University of Miami leads all schools with seven players on Super Bowl rosters. With both teams remaining teams boasting ProCanes, 2012 will mark the seventh straight season at least one ProCane will earn a Super Bowl ring.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes sir the Canes are representing hard.

From Greg Cote

AL GOLDEN'S "HOMELAND SECURITY" STRATEGY:

I find Al Golden's two most recent Hurricanes football hires to be good ones, but more than that interesting ones, for the same reason. James Coley, the new offensive coordinator (from FSU, pictured top) and Mario Cristobal, assistant head coach/tight ends (from FIU, bottom) have this in common: Recruiting. It is a clear strength of both men, especially in South Florida.

Cristobal is born and raised here and tapped in with local schools. Coley is a Miami High alum whose first coaching job was at Norland; ESPN has named him top recruiter in the ACC. I mentioned this coincidence to a source in the football program. "But it isn't a coincidence. It's our 'Homeland Security' plan," the source said, the phrase his, not Golden's.

"Al wants to dominate [recruiting] in Dade and Broward." That's especially true now as the school faces possible scholarship limits by the NCAA in the Nevin Shapiro case. If you don't have quantity, the quality had better be that much greater. The strategy to dominate in your bounteous backyard also sounds to me like a head coach digging in and planning to stay awhile.

Golden and Cristobal were at the basketball arena with guest recruits during UM's big win over No. 1 Duke -- a result and ambience that could only have helped Canes recruiting leading to next month's signing day. And sitting right next to UM's current star running back Duke Johnson was the player Miami hopes follows in Duke's footsteps: South Plantation's heavily recruited Alex Collins.

My guy coined the new reemphasis on South Florida as 'Homeland Security.' I might call it fencing in the backyard. Either way, Coley and Cristobal are smart hires to help Golden and UM get there

The future is bright, but there are some concerns. Our offense is on the brink off being one of the best. Morris has incredible armstrength and our receiver get behind a d quick. Collins and Duke and Dillard and OT will be uncontrolable behind the best Miami OL since 2003. We gotta make sure this new guy is a great game planner and play caller. Not just a great recruiter.

OGV and Gallo are not the same. Their writing styles are similar but check it
Gallo mispells words in every post and OGV may be negative but he never mispells a single word.

Hey, what a great week to be a Hurricane fan!

Completely disagree. He's trying some different line combos while it doesn't matter too much. Keeping Fleury rested for when it matters.

I'm ok with it.

CGNC

Ohio - he always does that doesn't he? I would like to see more defense oriented play - would really like to see Therrien back as an assistant. It seems Bylsma's system is more offense oriented. The last two games were a MESS. As much as I love Geno, he is not one of those players that elevates his play when ticked off.

Thank you Wally, both for your setting the record straight and collaborating that the Ale House isn't just tilting at windmills that I've never even heard of in between adult beverages, and I'll add that I agree with your assessment that UM's view in the coastal line now has a chance to be altered.

Hockey must be back? lol.

TonyCane

Meanwhile, in the Fortress of Swagitude, otherwise occasionally known as the Hecht Athletic Center a titanic battle was being waged. Al Golden fended off attack after attack, brandishing his tie like a bullwhip. His foe circled, face grim and eyes afire. The black pleather outfit of Golden’s opponent was a stark contrast to the gleaming, high tech confines of the athletic center, a blackness broken only by the crimson “A” emblazoned on his chest.

With another salvo General Saban was driven back towards an unusual device that stood in the back of the room. A gleaming chamber that resembled nothing more than an outsized crystal BCS Championship trophy.

Standing to the side, Lane Kiffin looked on in alarm. “Don’t go in there General, it’s a trap! It’s an NCAA Punishment Sphere. It turns programs like yours into programs like mine.”

Standing next to a hushed Donna Shalala, Emert added, “He is correct. It is quite…draining.”

General Saban growled at Shalala, “Cease this struggle…this futile effort to regain your status, or I will tear your school apart.” Al Golden looked to his president, who stifled a sob as she nodded.

Kiffin walked confidently towards General Saban. “Coach…I mean General, I believe the Shapiro testimony activates the mechanism.”

Saban sneered and beckoned Golden to enter the chamber. The Miami coach sagged. He was resigned to his fate, all hope now lost. Golden entered the crystal sphere, which quickly slid shut.

Moments later the Fortress of Swagitude was bathed in a green and orange glow as the device activated. Emert’s eyes widened with anticipation. Shalala sobbed, realizing that the revenue producing engine for the athletic department was being ground to powder.

Finally it was over. The chamber opened and Golden staggered out, robbed of skill and recruiting powers. Saban stood tall and beckoned him to kneel. The Miami coach complied.

“And now. Finally. Take my hand, and swear eternal loyalty to Saban.”

He held out his hand. Golden slowly reached out and took it.

And then he squeezed.

A resounding crunching filled the room as Saban gasped in horror. His powers undiminished, Golden effortlessly lifted the coach with one hand and held him up for all to see. Finally he gave Saban a sad shake of the head and tossed him out an open window. Onto the U-haul truck that was waiting to take him back to the SEC.

It was Kiffin who summized what had happened. “He switched it!”, he exclaimed. “The testimony was obtained incorrectly. The lights were on out here, and the Miami program was safe in there.”

Shalala turned to Emert and said, “You know something? You’re a real pain in the neck.” She hopped into the air with effortless strength and delivered a stunning drop kick that would have made Dwayne Johnson blush, sending Emert tumbling out the window and into another waiting vehicle, never to return to Coral Gables.

roachcane77

As much as I dislike OGV's negativity and insults to other bloggers here, there's no denying his loyalty as a Cane fan, and his dedication to learning and analyzing all he can about our team. I must say he often "brings it" with some very insightful stuff. Many of you may have missed this from the end of the last Blog, but THIS post by OGV, (in my opinion), is spot on.
What's this joker blabbing on about free passes?

Ale House, this is from an article about why the Lakers suck this year, tell me where D'No and Al's plushies are on this example?

There are two types of coaches …

1. A coach who looks at his players and says, "How can I put these guys in the best position for them to succeed?"

2. A coach who looks at his players and says, "How can I use these guys to make my system succeed?"

Now, think about the mind-set driving Coach No. 2: He's basically saying, I'm here only because of my system. I can't actually coach. If you give me the wrong players for my system, it doesn't matter — I will keep using the system anyway, because Plan B would be coming up with a more inventive way to coach these guys. And I can't do that. I'm not good enough. So if it's OK with you, I'd like to go down in flames with my system."

Coach #2 is responsible for any clouds over the football program Ale. Plus, a shoddy carpenter always blames his tools.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | January 25, 2013 at 09:15 PM

Not that it matters... but I'm WITH OGV on THIS one... I believe D'No is a Coach #2...
"Eventually," (maybe even this coming season), we'll see improvement... But, (also IMHO), this #2 type of coaching will never result in the "elite" defenses that we've seen at the U in the past. His "scheme/philosophy" is too much "waiting" and not enough "attacking" to get us into the top 5 or 10 in total D like we SHOULD be.

Nice article SOUP! (Including the title, of course.)

Mcginns ale house

Larranaga is such a pimp. Somebody needs to get that lifetime contract ready for him at years end in the UM athletic department. You know, if they can pull themselves out of the subterranean jack shack set up behind their offices with the always repeating highlights of Golden's ties on the sideline blowing in the wind projected in high def 3D 1080p to be bothered that is. I always knew deep down inside that D'No was a coward in addition to a totally clueless mutant who chicken dances in his defensive signals, now there's the proof of it reported. He should cuss out Barrow in the film room if he ever hits puberty one of these days, that would be worth the price of admission to watch him be totally a failure at Miami.

Mcginns ale house

he is a real fan!!!

Mcginns ale house

some more positive ogv..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?..

Hey I'm trying to lol. I'm tired of fans adding to the problem. The season isn't no where close to starting yet and fans are already complaining. We haven't had this much success in the past two or three weeks since we won our last ship and fans are still finding things to complain about.

CoCane

OGV,

I agree. It's obvious D'No will try to make the talent fit his system, instead of bending the system to fit the talent. A few of us see the writing on the wall but the rest are in denial. We can only hope that someone with serious coaching cred gets in his ear this off season & influences him to adjust his (gulp) "scheme".

In the midst of a cold case where the canes defense has been dead for 2 years. Last seen with prime suspect Mark D'Onofrio.

2) Duke Johnson to challenge NFL draft requirements, will leave immediately.

3) Connor Barth cloning chambers unearthed in North Carolina during NCAA investigation.

4) Donna Shalala to be named WR coach

5) Terry Porter throws another yellow flag, this time 10 years late, declaring that Ohio State engaged in excessive celebration after stopping Miami on fourth down. Ken Dorsey and the rest of 2002 Miami Hurricanes to reassemble next week to resume 2OT of national championship game.

Tonycane

Lol...did you get a picture?

86Cane

Wonder what team is hotter, UM women's golf or UM women's tennis?

The University of Miami women’s golf team opens its 2013 spring slate Monday at the inaugural Florida Challenge, a one-day, 36-hole shooting featuring five of Florida’s top programs.

Miami’s lone January event will be played at the par-72, 6,050-yard Quarry Course at Black Diamond Ranch in Lecanto, located about 80 miles northwest of Orlando.

The Canes, having recently finished a slew of individual offseason competitions, will be looking to earn state bragging rights as they compete against four in-state rivals – Florida, Florida State, UCF and host USF.

86Cane

Lol...did you get a picture?

Posted by: Tonycane | January 26, 2013 at 08:42 PM

This is 86Cane U are talking to, what do U think? OH YEAH!

86Cane

The ninth-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team secured its spot in the ITA National Team Indoors, with its 4-3 victory over No. 35 Arizona State Saturday afternoon at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

The Hurricanes’ newest member, Clementina Riobueno, battled back from a 4-1 third-set deficit to seal her team’s victory over a feisty Sun Devil squad. In the process, Riobueno and the Canes moved to 4-0 on the season and will head to Charlottesville, Va., Feb. 8-11 to participate in the ITA National Indoor Tournament.

“This was a big step for our program,” said UM head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews. “We’ll take this momentum moving forward.”

Tonycane

Did you and Mrs 86 go on the Dinosaur ride? My kids and I went on it 7 times on our trip.

The Dude

I can guess what Donald Duck did. Go Canes, beat FSU!

86Cane

Tony...YUP, sure did, just once but it was lots of fun. Living in Central Florida we have been to Disney more than most but never to Animal Kingdom. Now we can cross it off our bucket list.

If U are a FL resident and like the whole Disney thing and are a AAA member they have a 3-day pass for $119 and a 4 day pass for $129 that is good now through June 30. Now that's a DEAL!

Only blackout dates are two weeks around Spring Break which U don't wanna be there then anyways (too crowded and long lines). January, February and March are the best times to go: smaller crowds, no lines and great weather.

Ohio_Cane

Stop believing trolls. Sandland is enrolled and EJ is still on the team.

Posting from my poker game so will be sparingly

JamaiCane

Malik Price-Martin is a great get for the basketball team. Checking some of his videos he seems to have a lot of versatility to his game which should fit into what "The Pimp" is doing. If anyone has any videos of him I would love some links. South Florida puts out some solid players every year in Basketball just take a look at some of the rosters for top 25 teams and with the way Larranga coaches we should have a strong core for a few years, Just need to ensure we get some difference makers to get deep into the Tourney.

As a wiry, tow-headed 10-year-old, Kevin Olsen would occasionally toss a football back and forth with his big brother, Greg — now a prominent NFL tight end with the Carolina Panthers — during visits at University of Miami’s Greentree Practice Field.

When he was 12, Kevin, who by then had shot up to 5-3 as a quarterback for the Wayne, N.J., Police Athletic League, was with Greg in Miami Beach when he was selected late in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears in spring 2007.

“I’m really proud of him,” young Kevin said of Greg just days before that draft. “He never gives up, and every day he went out and tried his hardest. He can run. He can catch. He can do it all. Watching him get drafted is going to be really cool.”
