RICKY TOWN MAY BE DOWN IN jUNE

What

86Cane

Harry Miller with a FIRST? Man U gotta love that guy! So U say Ricky Town will be in town in June? Let us know how his visit goes if it goes through as planned.

raizecane

final four??

Harry Miller

Sorry about the caps. Ricky town visiting Stanford next week. USC says he is one of only a few real pro style QB out there and they want him. Not much chance as long as Kiffen is coach.

BEERicane

FGCU vs TheU rematch in final four. Would GC be the favorite?

To me it's looking like Michigan Miami final 4.

Clint is Hurtt


LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville defensive line coach Clint Hurtt has been placed on administrative leave while preparing to answer allegations of violations the NCAA says he committed while he was a Miami Hurricanes assistant.

Cardinals coach Charlie Strong said Friday Hurtt has been given time away from the program so he "can concentrate on his case."

Hurtt, 34, faces allegations of receiving and providing impermissible benefits while at Miami. The NCAA last month sent Hurtt and Louisville a letter stating that he received a $2,500 loan and provided perks to Hurricanes recruits.

The NCAA also said Hurtt provided false and misleading information during the investigation.

The Dude

What WR was Golden talking about at the end of the video? The one he said was a big receiver?

Montreal-Cane

Now can you imagine What Hurtt has done for recruits at Louisville? When Hurtt provided false and misleading information during the investigation he was a coach at Louisville...So any sanctions possible for the Cards???

Montreal-Cane

I don't know but i expect Herb Waters to be the no 1 or no. 2 receiver this year.

SOUP

UM 2013 WR core: Dorsett, Waters, Hurns, Lewis, Scott, Lockhart Carter and Jones.

U want more? LOL

Montreal-Cane

Miami lands basketball commitment today
James Kelley, a 3-star power forward.

BEERicane

Sounds like LoIC to me with Hurtt

orange 'n green in the vein

Ricky knows bad coaching when he sees it apparently. He'd probably rather play for his current high school coach at the next level than Kiffin and would win more if he did I bet. How he says no to Stanford at this point though I'm not sure but USC will be firing the coach soon so maybe he's into a transition career in college?

Any TV or Internet coverage of the men's basketball game tonight?
Thanks!

Montreal-Cane

SOUP thanks for your excellent articles day in and day out.

SOUP did you know there are still over 40 Canadian players involved in the March Madness Tournament, that the NCAA player of the year Olivier Hanlan is from my own town, that the no. 1 2013 recruit Andrew Wiggins is from north of the border and that the Harvard sensation Laurent Rivard played his basketball in Highschool with my nephew. Time for the Canes to recruit north of the Border like they did in football and other sports at UM. Sorry i just had to show a little bit of pride today.

Monty...nothing wrong with demonstarting some pride in your team our your Country.

BEERicane

Monte, Canada sucks. It's not even a real country anyway. The only country to give Canada any bit of respect in history (undeservedly so might I add) is France. That should tell you something. Canada could stop existing and the world wouldn't notice. Even Alaska would give a crap. Hell, Montreal is so bad the Expos left that hell hole. At least Toronto can keep their teams (which all suck).

: )

BEERicane

Canada is like women's basketball -- no one gives a s$!t.

Old Skool

From Wikipedia

The Expos' average attendance never top 20,000 during their last 10 seasons in Montreal.

Care to compare with the Marlins or the Rays?

In the past 13 years, the Marlins have only averaged more than 20,000 a year twice.

For the past 12 years, the Rays have failed to average 20,000 9 times.

Tim Brando ‏@TimBrando

Just met with Shane Larkin, Durand Scott, and Reggie Johnson of Miami. Always good to chat with Coaches, but the players are special.

BEERicane

Twice and three times is WAY more than 0 over that span. And at least the Marlins have won something. Thanks for helping with the Expos/Canada bashing, Old Skool!

Rush sucks. Pam Anderson has HepC. John Candy is dead. Tom Green and Jim Carey aren't funny, eh?

BEERicane

Today's games have been terrible.

Terrance Sullivan

Really hope our Canes take care of Illinois tomorrow night on TNT and advance to the Sweet 16. Go Canes. Good report on the 1st scrimmage today 86.

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

Last night I was at at local bar and ran into someone I know who is big Mizzou fan. He could not stop hatin' on Haith. Has wanted him fired since before the season.I could only say thank you for taking him off our hands... And that he is one of best dressed coaches... Probably from all of money he got from rat face...

nemo2002

Thanks TS for the right day and cable network for the Canes' game against Illinois.

Terrance Sullivan

Anytime 8:40 eastern/7:40 central.

Terrance Sullivan

Hopefully tomorrow both our Canes and Lady Canes win in Austin and Iowa City respectively. The Pimp and Coach Meier are excellent coaches and it's awesome both teams are in the NCAA tournament and hopefully both of them will lead our Canes into deep title runs and possibly bring a Championship trophy back to Coral Gables.

BigWindyCane1

Went to the scrimmage. WR had some drops, and the Canes struggled with the short passing game, but overall I liked what I saw.

QB: Morris looked good. He missed on a few throws, but his receivers did have several drops. Morris was the only QB that threw the ball down field.

RB: Duke should be first team ACC and perhaps All American.

WR: Waters has improved a lot, but can get a lot better. I still like Scott better, but Scott dropped a long pass on a nice throw by Morris. Dorsett looked good, but did drop a low Morris throw for a sure TD.

TE: The position looks deeper with Sandland, Dobard and O'Donnel, but Clive is the best TE and a real playmaker and blocker.

OL: Although some of the OL were hurt, overall it looks deep and solid; and Seantrel is a huge and dominant human being.

DTs - will be much improved this year (which does not say much). I think they might surprise us.

DE - will bring a stronger rush and push this season. McCord and Hamilton look much better, and Chick will have a great year. All the DEs looked better.

LB: Perryman can be all ACC, and Figueroa will play this year.

CB: are much deeper this year. They are much improved.

Safety: They are deep. Bush looks good. I don't know why Highsmith starts, but he has been hitting the weights. Jenkins is a star in the making.

The Canes will be much improved this year. The offense will be explosive. The defense will be much improved, and will get better and better as the season goes along. I think they will give the Gators all they can handle on the second game of the season, and then I think they will win the ACC and make it to a BCS Bowl.

SinisterCane

New season same SH!T with all the drops, instead of running track in the offseason WORK ON YOUR COTDAMM HANDS. That is all

CaneRock

GREAT! reports SOUP and BigWindyCane1.
As far the WRs go, I'd rather get the dropsies out the way now, as opposed to the regular season.

CoCane

CaneRock,

That's the point. After the dropsies in the regular season, their still doing it in the off season. That's not getting it out of the way. That's continuing it...

JCane

Always fun to play the brackets with the tournament, although hard to think clearly in a year where the Canes actually have a shot for a deep run. I'd like to say I was doing great, but my two darkhorse picks to make nice runs were Wisconsin to the Final Four before losing to Louisville, and NCState somehow taking out Indiana and earning a rematch with the U. Also, I didn't have the er, guts, to go with the FGCU win over G-town, although I figured it would be a close game. I didn't see Gonzaga making it past Wisc, and then saw the Badgers with the upset over OSU (well, was more hope, as I hate the Buckeyes). The upset picks that have worked well for me so far are Cal and Oregon, but the best I can do now is getting 3 of the Final 4, so I don't think I have much of a chance.

For now, Gonzaga is getting a game from Wich. State, who is playing better than I'd have figured in this tnmt. Butler has a slim lead over Marquette, but it's a tight one. I'd picked Butler, but I don't really care, as if the U keeps winning I don't care if I lose every other game in the tnmt. brackets! It's all good. I'm going to stop bothering with trying to predict the U and just watch, as it's just a waste of my brain and I don't really know what to expect anyway! I do, however, hate the fact that the FU team has what appears to be an easier bracket, although Minnesota could give them a solid game. I'm not sure the SDSU vs. FGCU winner would take them down, but I'd love to see FGCU keep on winning and do a beatdown on the crocs! As someone said before, I think Michigan probably has the edge in this bracket, unless KU shows me they have something more (given a very weak conference championship....KSU knocked out by LaSalle, Oklahoma knocked out by San Diego St., and Ok. State getting knocked out by the Ducks, all in the 1st round...and then a close shave vs. #16 W. Ky.).

March Madness is the best, and I love having the U in it!

JCane

BTW, for those who care, the ESPN tnmt. challenge has the U as the 3rd most popular (just over 10%) pick for the national championship game, behind Louisville and Indiana. This is also more interesting given IU and UM being in the same bracket. Clearly the majority of people picking liked the Louisville vs. the 1 vs. 2 from the East, without having a boatload of respect for the Zags and just a drop less for the Jayhawks.

orange 'n green in the vein

Won't have to watch a cheap ass John Stockton close up every fifteen seconds during one of these games next weekend. LMAO!

BEERicane

Word, OGV. Sick of hearing about the Zags. Anyone who considered them a legit 1-seed or even a remote threat to make the final 4 (hell, even took them past the first weekend) doesn't know a damn thing about college bball. They are the most overrated #1 overall in the history of all sports of all time (Notre Dame football a close second this yr) and the most over rated 1 seed ever. That team is a joke.

Terrance Sullivan

My guess is that millions of people around the nation are taking their brackets and wiping their azz with it.

Canes win

March 23, 2013

CORAL GABLES, Fla. In a classic pitcher's duel at Alex Rodriguez Park, southpaw Bryan Radziewski delivered one of the most scintillating performances in recent history to guide Miami to a series-clinching 2-0 victory over No. 24 Virginia Tech.

The junior lefthander, making his season debut in the weekend rotation, allowed a double to Hokies' lead-off hitter Gary Schneider on his first pitch of the night. That was nearly all he would allow the rest of the way, fanning 16 batters in a complete game shutout, the first for a Miami pitcher since David Gutierrez did so May 31, 2009 against Jacksonville.

Canedolfan386

Jane that's awesome. Your bracket is right on track with mine. As luck would have it the guys at my local cigar shop aren't very good at picking. So I'm still in it. I'm like u if the canes win it all I don't care about my bracket.

Canedolfan386

J cane sorry. Damn auto correct got me

The Dude

The Canes winning everything makes my bracket fantastic. I really think we can win it all.

Ohio_Cane

Glad I picked Wichita State to upset Gonzaga! Knew they'd be the first 1-seed send packing

orange 'n green in the vein

BEER, I picked them to lose early and knew they would be lucky to survive the first weekend. I did OK today considering I came in to the games today 0-1 on one bracket thanks to previous games and ended up 6-2 with only the overrated #1 upset being the miss there, but I have them losing to Ole Miss in the next round so I need douche shady to find his game RIGHT F'ING NOW. If I can keep that makeup pace with the rest of this round as I'm already starting tomorrow 0-2 for picks in that bracket I'll take it.

The other one I went 7-1 and started 0-1 for the day so I had it all right! Except for picking Pitt to be the upset bouncer of the white doofus team from Washington instead of Witch St. Seriously, the long haired dork with the constant pump fakes is like a Chris Mihm starter kit. I'm starting Sunday 0-2 on that bracket too.

The Dude

Romberg is Canadian.

Les Stroud is Canadian.

NigerianCane

My bracket is all effed up. I have the canes playing 'cuse in the final 4 & Ohio state for the 'ship.

orange 'n green in the vein

Dude, I need to see a willingness to go for the throat offensively from UM today, add in a full 40 minute commitment to defending the three point line for good measure, because Illinois will continue to try and shoot themselves back into the game from long range so it's imperative that Miami continue to go inside and press the paint advantage while shooting a high percentage on a lot of high percentage shots around the rim.

Or just let Durand fill the bucket up like a 400 lbs position coach on administrative leave from Louisville's football team at an all you can eat night at KFC, that could work too.

86Cane

Great teams are able to win in tough environments and the 10th-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team is no exception, downing No. 29 Baylor, 4-3, Saturday at the Hurd Tennis. The Hurricanes improve to 10-3 on the season.

Head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews is impressed with the way her team handled its busy weekend against tough opposition on the road.

“Taking down Texas and Baylor on their home turf isn't an easy feat,” Yaroshuk-Tews said. “I am impressed with the progress we have made lately. It is exciting to be coaching this group because we still have so much improvement to make.”

All this talk about how well the D played. Interesting...

I guess it's ok since some are ok with always being wrong and just go in negative rants for the hell of it. Then they'll come back and gracefully say how wrong they were.

Maybe some DLs will get double teamed this year to justify some more blitz calling so his "schemes" will make some happy in here. I think we also have some LBs and DBs that will play the positions they're suppose to because they actually trust their teammate now and expect them to be in their position. Man, I'd hate to have to coach 9 freshmen and everyone expecting me to create an All American D from that as we never compare what talent one DC has to the next.

Now about that coach from Temple and his buddy finding another job...

360Cane,

This is where people get guys like me & OGV all wrong. An all american defense wasn't expected. Neither was an all time worst defense. The talent level wasn't top 10 but it wasn't bottom 10 either. It would've been forgivable if the defense was ranked AT LEAST in the 90's. Preferrably in the 60-70 range. Look at the teams that were ranked in the bottom 20 with us. Our talent level wasn't that bad. It should've been better...

orange 'n green in the vein

Coke, love how he puts words into posters mouth about expectations when my expectations going into the year last year were, to paraphrase the point, 'we have bad coaches from the MAC and they will make the season a .500 slug-fest because of their bad scheme." Which happened, yet I'm supposedly upset because I'm someone who expected the opposite going into last year according to numberofdegreesinacirclecane? No, I'm enjoying making fun of them because we had bad coaches from the MAC and they made the season a .500 slug-fest because of their bad scheme, again. If you've played even a few games, much less 11, of post-game-loss-presser-Al-Golden-quote bingo over the last few years you've heard the bad coach from the MAC admit just that much from his own mouth more than once after an embarrassing loss.

The 360 in his blog name must refer to his circular logic he uses to try and make his points in between white knighting for The Lie.

BigWindyCane1

I noticed from the scrimmage yesterday that across the board, all the players looked bigger and stronger from working in U-Tough. Golden did focus on conditioning and you can see it paying off. I was surprised by the LBs and DLs. Corey King looks to be in great shape, and the other DTs look good across the board.

The Canes ran 100 plays, but the pace was pretty fast. The offense and defense got lined up quickly, and they did not seem to be tired. The players are in good shape. I am excited about this season.

The Canes are better than they were last spring. They just need to work on execution on both sides of the ball. I think they can score a lot of points on offense, but they do need to clean up execution and finishing plays.

Golden will have them ready to make a BCS run.

orange 'n green in the vein

O_C, Iowa State is always one of those teams that's a good pick when they're seeded low and when seeded higher is prime for the upset to me.

Just not sure even unaffiliated refs can overcome the pressure of officiating in Dayton to call the game evenly enough to allow ISU to pull this one off though. Different venue would be a different story to I bet.

Canesteeler

oGV your question about the refs was answered.
