Canes win in baseball 6-1.

hester again.

Montreal-Cane

Every single player on this team needs to bring his "A" game in the next month to win, win, win...Julian Gamble and Reggie Johnson please show up at the next game...You guys are leaders!

JCane

This was the game I'd been most worried about lately, the way the last few games had gone prior (FSU, Clemson and UVa). Even before UVa, I'd said I was more worried about the game at WFU, as the Deacs had been playing well as of late, the U hasn't, and the road hasn't been easy for the U. This team has been playing unfocused hoops, but throw in a poor D performance to boot, and blowout is spelled. I figured the team had to lose a game, as they've had the pressure of being perfect in the ACC and 2013 getting to them. The question is whether the one loss is enough to get the edge back. If so, it would be good timing, as this kind of game at Duke would be a 25+ pt. blowout against us. I don't see the U having a problem picking up the one seed still, but it could very well take a win at Duke and then winning the ACC tnmt., assuming no other losses. However, first things first. They are two games up on Duke in the ACC. Win the ACC outright. Focus on this, then the ACC tnmt, then the NCAA tnmt. Let the seeding fall where it may. Winning the ACC likely gets a min. of a 3 seed, winning the ACC tnmt. gets a 1 or 2 seed, so simply playing good ball is a must to make a deep run.

I haven't lost sight of how magical this season has been. It has been amazing. I'd hate to see all of the mo disappear right toward the end of the season. I don't see coach L not finding a way to use this loss to fix things and motivate.

Nice win on the diamond again.

Big s/o to the ballers from the U. Do any of you believe the fb team would have been blessed w/ Corn & Griffin w/o the success of the bball team??

Hurricane Warrior

Duke!

CGNC

JCane - I agree with your post! The team had some lackluster wins the past couple of games. I don't know if some of that is due to injury or not. Hopefully this does not continue and they pick it up once again

Technically, since nobody claimed 3rd, I'm 3rd! And I can finally fulfill my dream of saying, 3GEEEEEE! <------In my Michael Barrow on NSD voice.

A BIG! Thank You to CaneSpace for makin' my dreams come true.

Interesting story on Outside the Lines about Sapelo Island & Allen Bailey.

Disappointing though, there was that not one mention of The U.

D'No is nothing if he's not confident in himself. (Annoyingly so.)

He doesn't seem to have a problem throwing kids under the bus while making excuses.

We'll be better on D because we have better athletes... but there's NO WAY we should have been as bad as we were last year. A coach has to put kids in the proper position to be successful & make plays.

IMHO we were NOT in the proper positions last year. Hence, we did not make plays.

Not surprising: Mike James is U TOUGH.

86Cane

On a special night at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field, the No. 20 Miami Hurricanes stayed perfect on the young season with an 6-1 win over Milwaukee.

Designated as the “Remembering Ron Fraser Game,” the night’s action was marked by ceremonious tribute to the late baseball coach nicknamed “The Wizard.” Fraser’s family helped unveil a new outfield banner portraying the legendary coach, longtime friend of Fraser and Baseball Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda threw out the game’s first pitch, and current head coach Jim Morris paid his own special acknowledgment in the game’s first inning.

With a runner on first base and no outs, Morris called the “Grand Illusion” play for which Fraser became famous after the 1982 College World Series. Though the runner wasn’t fooled on Salas’ “overthrow” to first, the crowd of 2,980 gave a deserved round of applause for the theatrical homage.

The Hurricanes plated runs in the first and second inning, jumping out to an early lead for the second straight night. Senior Chantz Mack connected on a two-out single in the first, and freshman David Thompson drove him home with an RBI double to open the night’s scoring. The double was the fourth for Thompson in his first six collegiate games.

The Wizard

Are there any tickets left for Wednesday (VT) night's game ? I need three.

See, it was a really bad day in the world of sports for me yesterday CR, so I'm trying to not have this one ruined by blubbering mutants who are unqualified at their jobs as well, so I'm asking you in all seriousness so that if I'm right I can skip the aggravation of clicking on that link while subjecting myself to the loss of 20 points of IQ, but the entire interview boils down to the basic argument of, "look what I did at Temple," doesn't it?

OGV...I don't understand why Da Pimp did not use his timeouts in the second half to stop the WF 10-0 run?

OGV...PEEK-A-BOOOOOO!

“It’s something I have to ignore,” he said of fan backlash. “I have to put trust in my training. I’ve called over 85 games. First year I came here, we were in the top 20 in scoring defense. The year before at Temple, we were in the top 20 in scoring defense.”

CR, wake me when the mutants from Philly earn their paychecks for the first time in their careers at UM, until then I'll be paying attention to those at UM's revenue sports that know what they're doing instead of playing moron quote bingo that is so predictable it stopped being engaging two weeks after they where hired.

Hey, Golden shower-ers, just be happy I didn't make the Gerald Sandusky reference that dipsh!t did when he said this; "I have to put trust in my training."

D'No, we don't do that to little boys from bad homes at UM, and we don't play sh!tty defense like you coach either.

Montreal-Cane

Mike James will be taken in the 5th or 6th round...Doing well at the combine, great attitude and leadership will help him. Before the combine he was projected in the 7th but it will be much better.

Best of luck to a great man and a true Cane.

CGNC

YAY Mike James

orange 'n green in the vein

Listen here Charlie Brown, because he knows the game and when UM couldn't close from an extra large two possession game with the seven point margin, he needed them in a few minutes if they ever could answer what started that run and string together a few more buckets to close the gap to a single possession with enough time to eventually grind out a lead at some point in the last few minutes. Once the 2nd leading active ACC career scorer got going in transition after the 100% behind the arc percentage he put up in the 1st, it was a moot point all around and time to regroup to defend the home court and win the league title.

JCane

Great question, 86. I'd love to hear Coach L's response. I'm not second guessing, as much as interested in hearing what he'd have to say. The Canes had worked hard to pull back from a 19 pt. deficit to get within 5 before the wheels came off with turnovers, fouls, missed 3s and FTs, etc., all allowing a few minutes to kill the run that started with about a minute left in the first half to make it a game again.

86Cane

OGV...The Canes closed to within 5 before Scott's ill advised and uncontrolled drive into the lane that was blocked. Then Reggie and Kadji had T/Os on the next two trips down the floor.

That right there was TIME OUT time.
If there ever was one. I'm jus sayin...

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, instead of super size two possession game it was a medium super size two possession game Charlie, the point still stands, once they couldn't get to one possession it was a moot point on the timeouts because their effort wasn't good enough that night to overcome the start.

Also Durand Scott is never ill advised driving the lane for an uncalled foul that is recorded as a block because that's what Durand Scott does better than everybody else on the team and is how he ended up the 3rd leading active ACC career scorer playing today.

BEERicane

Durand makes many ill-advised decisions. He is a turnover waiting to happen most of the time (those ridiculous shots are effective a TO, he was really luck yesterday). Kadji dribble off of his foot was the nail in the coffin. MO switch for good after that play and the canes never threatened post Kadji-TO. And the canes giving Reggie the ball 16-20 feet from the hoop is asking for a TO. Can't blame Reggie for wanting to be aggressive, but I can blame the people who keep feeding him that far from the hoop, seeing the same result and expecting a different result.

orange 'n green in the vein

BEER, guards are really getting away from constantly feeding the post and then getting open looks by moving away from the double their man is providing to help with on defense. Yesterday there was an inbound play that Jones (I'm pretty sure) was wide open on coming off a Johnson screen that the inbounder just looked at and never threw because they've stopped using the high fake, low bounce pass entry to the big guys in the regular sets so that there's no way they can possibly connect with someone as average size for a player as Jones on the block with a pass anymore in any situation much less one designed to get him open for a dunk like he was off that particular play yesterday without a timeout called beforehand. Whatever, Wake played their game better than Miami played theirs or Wakes so they won. I've got Green for 24 points at the BUC right now but we'll see how Scott does.

86Cane

BEER...stop making so much sense! U may explode OGV's illusion, not to mention his extra large sized brain.

Montreal-Cane

Anyone noticed that the Gators lost their last 4 games in baseball. They were swept by Florida Gulf Coast this WE. Miami will face the turds in Gainesville next WE.

Turds are 3-5 and Canes 7-0

Anyone has an injury update on Miami Baseball players...Eric whaley, Bryan Radziewski (our best 2 pitchers) and others???

Hassan

The 28 reps that Mike James lifted matches his total given in UTough testing, it also matches the amount by "Feldman's Freak's" Trent Richardson. James running a low 4.5 and doing 28 reps with a 35 inch vert shows he is more athletic then many gave him credit for. He will make a roster and may end up being a feature back in the NFL.

elliott

NCAA throwing the book at the boys...
Damn they hate Miami it is really sad considering our sanctions could be I would love to hear from someone who knows what we are really facing...

Hassan

Check that, Richardson did 25 reps and Doug Martin did 28. Richardson also ran about a 4.445-4.49 no far off Mike James #'s and considering Richardson was considered to be a super athletic workout warrior that should show you how good Mike James really is.

CaneRock

Hassan, I think McGee will make some money tomorrow. I'm curious as to what He'll run in the 40.

Montreal-Cane

The best thing that happened to Mike James is returning for his senior year to get really ready for the NFL. Hassan i agree with you Mike will surprise some people out there, except us and i expect him to get a very decent contract on the next level.

Hassan

Mcgee will run high 4.3's and an official of like 4.42. I will be shocked if Mcgee run's 4.2's like he was timed here at Miami, that was years ago and I do not see 4.2 speed on the field and he never has seemed to regain that speed after putting on over 10 lbs of muscle. He is plenty fast still but just not other worldly speed like he once was, (he was once timed at 4.19 on the same day as Sam Shields but his time was later changed to 4.25)

Montreal-Cane

Is it bad for our RPI if "Oshitostate" beats #4 Michigan State?

Two issues with the offense:

1. Not dumpling it in to the post (esp Reggie)and back out for wide open 3s
2. Larkin not penetrating as often as he was. Obviously opponents trying to take it away, but he is such a good driver--then shoot or pass--- that he has to force the issue a bit.

Kadji/Jones/Brown were on an incredible 3 streak and now can't buy one. That will return. Wish 2 could be hot each night and 1 cool, but doesn't work that way.
