No offense to the guy, but after his signing day predictions this year I was hoping O_C was going to say Sony was going to Arkansas.

Kiss Sony Michel goodby

After your track record this year, I'm with OGV, I was hoping you'd say another school. Or just use a dartboard, you're bound to get more right through random chance. lol

Looks like a first round exit for Frank Haith.

Thats the Frank Haith we all know and love.

Whats wrong with the blog? The new article just came up for me. I could only see the last article.

orange 'n green in the vein

At least he kept it close last year if you're a Missouri fan/Brad Pitt.

Now the question how far past or short of the expected seeding round for UM will they go? They're seeded as a great eight elimination, so who thinks they make it that far, farther or shorter and who knocks them out, assuming you're not like me and don't have them beating Louisville by a point for the national championship?

Harvard Returns To NCAA Tournament After Academic Scandal, Faces New Mexico

AP | By EDDIE PELLS
Posted: 03/20/2013 9:23 pm EDT

Anyone knows why Harvard didn't get NCAA sanctions???

orange 'n green in the vein

Because they suspended the players from school before the season for cheating Monty. No compromised eligibility athletes playing means no need to sanction anybody.

orange 'n green in the vein

10-5 on one bracket today Coke, OKST was the only loss that I have making it out of the first weekend so far. All my misses lost by double digits except NM.

12-3 on the other bracket and only Pitt picked to get to the 2nd weekend on that one but Gonzaga looks ripe for an early exit anyway.

Willie Will in Nashville

So do we take the post season ban in basketball now???? Lol

The last school to commit NCAA violations would be Harvard

They don't even have athletic scholarships. About the only advantage an athlete would get is slightly relaxed entrance requirements, and even then you're still talking about athletes that have extremely high academic performance that would get them into just about every school including some Ivys.

Hassan

In defense of Ohio Cane a couple of kids flat out lied. He was not "off" in who he thought was coming here. AC flat out told our staff he was coming, we was lied to, Ohio got the same intel I got but the kids lied what can u do?, recruit better kids who Want to be Canes and do not have coaches who don't want them to be.

LB

As I stated before, it's mostly smoke and speculation until they actually sign.

There are very few Duke Johnsons and Standish Dobards.

Miami Hurricanes’ Gray Crow battling for backup quarterback job

Hurricanes coach Al Golden said Thursday that Gray Crow has moved past Preston Dewey and is battling junior Ryan Williams for Miami’s backup quarterback job.

“Gray is a little bit ahead of Preston right now,” Golden said of the two redshirt freshmen. “So Gray is competing with Ryan. Stephen [ Morris] is clearly the No. 1, but Ryan and Gray are fighting for No. 2.”

Golden said he will get a look at all four of his quarterbacks in Saturday’s 10 a.m. scrimmage at Traz Powell Stadium.

The fifth quarterback on campus, freshman David Thompson, is on the baseball team and is not participating in spring practice.

Thompson missed the Canes’ past two baseball games because of soreness in his surgically repaired right shoulder, but Golden said he is not concerned about the injury or the dual-sport athlete’s ability to pick up the football playbook.

“David is really bright, and he will learn what he needs to learn,” Golden said.

LINEBACKER BATTLE

Senior Jimmy Gaines and sophomore Raphael Kirby are competing for the starting job at middle linebacker.

The Canes, who finished 82nd in the nation in points allowed last season, are looking for help on defense. They also finished 112th in rushing yards allowed, an area that falls under the jurisdiction of a middle linebacker.

Gaines, a 6-3, 235-pounder, has the advantage of experience, having started 14 games the past two years.

Kirby (6-0, 230 pounds) has yet to start a college game. But he might be the more high-end prospect considering that he was a four-star recruit out of Georgia and has put on 22 pounds since his arrival.

Gaines, who was a two-star recruit from Buffalo, N.Y., has earned praise for his football intelligence, a key factor for a middle linebacker.

“Jimmy rarely makes a mistake,” Canes defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio said. “He’s tough and continuing to get better. At [middle linebacker], you have to be a guy who is confident and can put out the calls quick.”

Golden called it a “great competition” and added that Kirby, who played outside linebacker in high school, could move back there if the need arises.

“But if he can [play the middle] and be the captain of the defense, we’d like to leave him there,” Golden said.

Golden said it was Kirby’s intelligence and confidence that made him a natural to play inside. Kirby is also stronger and more poised this year than last year, the coach said.

U left off my other predictions.

That's 5/12. Still not stunning, but looks a little better lol. 41% is better than the 22% U gave me haha

Ohio_Cane

Canes starters today vs Pacific: Larkin, Scott, McKinney-Jones, Kadji, Gamble.

orange 'n green in the vein

I was only concerned with those you predicted coming here O_C, that's why they got left off, who cares who goes elsewhere IMO, but you're right, I did get rid of the ones you predicted going elsewhere so I don't know if they where right or not.

Anyway, bottom line, I'm hoping you think Sony is on his way to University of Japan to play for the Haiku's football team, anywhere but Miami at this rate! LOL.

Jorge Milian ‏@caneswatch 2m

Pacific has to be the shortest team UM has faced this season. Heights for Tigers' starting five: 6-4, 6-1, 6-0, 6-8, 6-6.

Hopefully, the game will give the starters some rest and provide a chance to Reggie, Rion and company to get some extended minutes.

Ohio_Cane

Canes rolling. Pacific shooting like 15% is def helping, but I like how they look so far.

Ohio_Cane

29-13 Canes. A little over 3 mins left in 1st half.

orange 'n green in the vein

Thought the knock on UM was, 'haven't done it yet as a group, little depth?'

Looks like the reserves decided to hold down the turbo button all game today just like the starters. This is what champions do in the fist half of their openers, step on the throat and don't let up, take notes overrated #1 team from Washington.

Old Skool

U shooting over 45& from the 3 and 41% from the floor

"No, they have basketball experience, that's more important."

LMFAO! Who wants my leftover collection of post-game-loss-presser-Al-Golden-bingo cards? I'm not playing that lame game anymore in my lifetime. Remember, can't win without, "We all have to get better, players, coaches, staff."

CoCane

Miami 40 Pacific 19 at the half

I like what I'm seeing. They're playing with a calm intensity. Every player that's got in has scored. We're taking care of business & playing like contenders...

orange 'n green in the vein

The starters just need to break this press coming up in the 2nd half a few times for some easy baskets then get a few stops and then they can start leaning on the clock.

If Durand shoots like this from behind the arc for five more games, get some space ready in the trophy case, no doorstops with this one. Reggie looks like he's getting back to his early season form which is a scary piece of news for the rest of this region.

Sarasota 'cane

Well my bracket is toast but my final 4 teams are all still alive! The canes looked great today in a game that they were suppose to look great in.
Louisville was the only other team in my Final Four that dominated like Miami. I have Miami beating Louisville in the final.

Go 'canes!!

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

Great game by the 'Canes hoops terms. They got first game jitters out of the way... Now they have some post season experience. I am hoping they are starting to click on all cylinders like in January early February.

Shane if you are reading, Great game! Keep it up!

Mia Chi 'Cane '98

Jekiri and Swoope looked good out there today. And if Larkin keeps being aggressive, and we keep knockin' down those 3s, we're gonna be hard to stop.

Leaving Bay Hill, raining, Tiger trails by 4.

VfB_Cane

Bring on Illinois! (up by 16 at halftime)

VfB_Cane

Wow -- Illinois totally falling apart. Colorado now with a 5-point lead with 9:27 left.

BEERicane

Canes will dismantle either the buffs or illini. Both teams lack offensive flow, and neither plays D. It will be a route.

orange 'n green in the vein

Ever since Johnson hurt his finger and Gamble stepped his game up to spark that win streak, UM has been a team that can only allow the opposition to beat them by beating themselves, either by poor defensive effort or a cold shooting night collectively as a team. Other than that they can play whatever kind of game you want and beat you at it.

Illinois will have to find a way to match the paint scoring and limit offensive rebounds to have a chance, although their guards will be able to make the game difficult if they can get off to a fast shooting start Sunday.

I picked Colorado to win in both my brackets though.

CoCane

Big Reggie finally showed up. This was his best game in a month. 7 pts 10 rebs. I hope he keeps it up. Nice warm up game for Illinois. They play just like Pacific but are better at doing it. If we bring the intensity, we'll win convincingly...

VfB_Cane

Predicatbly enough, Illinois holds Colorado to 5 points the rest of the way.

I agree with BEER, their offense should not be a problem if the Canes come out ready to play on Sunday.

Clwtrdan

Predictably, teams pad the player's heights in b-ball. Heck, I was 6'6" in high school at the state tournament and 6'-7" in college.I finally requested the PR people to list me at 6'-3" in the program my junior year. Point being. They are probably shorter than listed.
P.S. I'm 6'3.5".

CaneRock

Other than that they can play whatever kind of game you want and beat you at it.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | March 22, 2013 at 07:01 PM

If we at least shoot a decent percentage from 3 land.

orange 'n green in the vein

That doesn't matter as much as the defensive effort IMO. If they shoot a poor 3 point percentage and play great defense they'll win more games than if vice versa.

I told U so!

Old Skool

In other news ...

That guideline should really go without saying, but former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson stepped all over it when he recently said on his Houston radio show that current Patriots lineman Vince Wilfork had the ugliest wife in the NFL.

“You know what, I’ve got it,” Johnson said on CBS Houston when a caller asked him to identify the player with the least attractive wife. “And this is a big, big man. This guy had his way with the Texans this year. He won’t hear this — Vince Wilfork.”

Thing was, there was no way Wilfork — who played on the 2004 New England team with Johnson — wasn't going to hear that awful response in this age of sports blogs and Twitter.

And once he did, let's just say that Johnson was lucky Wilfork didn't book the next flight to Houston to teach him a thing or two about respect. (Would anyone here have blamed him if Wilfork forcibly fed Johnson his microphone?)

Wilfork instead took to Twitter to point out just how wrong Johnson was:

It really is a shame that Wilfork was put in this position. Bianca Wilfork has always been very public with her support of her husband and the couple runs The Vince Wilfork Foundation, which raises money for diabetes research. She may not fit society's traditional definition of beautiful but she's clearly beautiful to the only person whose opinion matters — Vince Wilfork.

After seeing Wilfork's angry tweet, Johnson took to Twitter and tried to apologize. it was much too late. His original comment was despicable and there's not enough sorries in the world to make up for what he said

orange 'n green in the vein

So basically, Vince doesn't have to worry about that ex teammate breaking his fidelity vow they gave each other with his wife. Any word what Vince's wife thinks of Ted's ream antler spray enhanced forehead?

CoCane

So if a woman is pretty & you say she's pretty that's ok. But, if a woman is ugly & you say she's ugly, that's bad...

I thought honesty was the best policy. (shruggs)
