86 yes the shop Miami Hurricanes site is da bomb as it pertains to Hurricanes gear.

You get that UM was only supposed to be rewarded with a first game against a team they could run out of the building but was still a quality squad in their own right since they where a top 16 team in the selection and then from there it's good team after really good team after great teams until the end of the line 86, right?

It was comical getting these same type of live comments on the game blogs during the ACC tourny while they won every game by double digits, but now this sense of UM should just roll the ball out and the game should be over in the first five possessions as they build an insurmountable lead and never give up a run is just bordering on absurd. This is not a team full of lottery picks taking 100 level general study courses while waiting to be drafted after they roll unchallenged to a net cutting in college, it's a bunch of spare parts that the big name programs didn't want and a MLB HOF'ers son playing as a group for a coach who brings out the best in each of them and collectively are reviving a literal zombie program to lay siege to the blue-bloods ensconced in their ivory towers which is why they're having all that fun and are so fun to watch fan, alum, or not.

The only reason the Big 10 plus 2 is being derided as being 'overrated' this year is because more people are saying their the best league than any other this year and they make up a 1/4 of the remaining field, yet UM took down one of their contenders to stand on the doorstep of undisputed greatest ever in program history territory.

Why is that not the article instead of how 'unfun to watch' the win was? Hell, I've never said it was 'unfun to watch' Miami win any game for the crappy football team these last two years even while the FCS teams racked up 400+ yards in a glorified regular season scrimmage against one of the worst coaching staffs to ever come through here in the modern era.

Yes I agree on the pick up of Brendan Morrow. Maybe the two of them can just trade sweaters LOL. Shero is a good GM. Don't look now but the Pens are playing disciplined hockey, defense and killing penalties. And that is without Malkin and LeTang in the lineup.

The Canes game last night was close, but like you said, the competition is going to get much better for them with every advance they make. I don't get all the hating on Big Reg, I like him. For all anyone knows maybe that knee of his will never be right.

CoCane

CGNC,

More reason for him not get many minutes

orange 'n green in the vein

CGNC, Reggie will get his $NBADough$ but much like Robert Traylor from Michigan in the 90's (who is now dead of heart failure attributed to being the original Pizza The Hut amongst I'm sure some other things) his likeliest reason for washing out is going to be his commitment to conditioning. Marquete is going to make UM beat them by making them pay for pressing by getting the ball to the middle of the court and then getting an easy transition bucket by layup on the other end and Williams is going to have them playing angry, they'll need a double helping of this to counter:

@MiamiRadioBeast: @CANEINSIDER has learned that LB Eddie Johnson is in town & hoping 2 get back 2 the team,but it is up 2 a dean on campus.Out of AG hands.

orange 'n green in the vein

The dean is going to look at his academic record and if EJ hasn't been slacking he'll get a fair shake at re-enrolling if he isn't way behind on his credits for his number of years on campus. Then it's back to being an internal matter for Golden to work through as he's going to see fit (so he'll be gone basically either way).

Honestly, if the academic faculty don't want the guy in their class he can't and shouldn't be on the team for all intents and purposes but I think he's a great potential talent and has experience that will make this season better if he stays healthy and focused so I hope he's on the roster this year and finishes his degree at the school.

Reggie "Pizza The Hut" Johnson is eating so much he can no longer move and I'm worried Coach L doesn't realize it and keep playing him causing the U bball team to lose.

Reggie Johnson, 18 0-1 0-0 0-0 3 5 1 0 0 1 2 0

Julian Gamble, 13 1-2 0-0 0-0 3 5 0 0 2 1 0 2

So because Reggie filled in for 300 more seconds of game time while Gamble came up gimpy on his ankle there and grabbed the same number of boards and offensive ones as well, but took one less shot and didn't need to block the ball because he wasn't getting moved toward the basket by the post player while he stood his ground, this guy;

Barry Jackson:

### Amusing to hear NCAA president Mark Emmert defend himself on ESPN’s Mike and Mike Show this morning and justify his lack of accountability in the mishandling of the UM investigation.

Emmert said: “For those saying, ‘Fire Emmert’ – it’s like saying if the assistant coach did something wrong, fire the [university] president.”

Why didn’t Emmert know the investigation was being mishandled? “You don’t want the president in the middle of the investigation mucking around,” he said.

And Emmert insisted that once the NCAA found mistakes had been made in the investigation, “I’m confident we did exactly the right thing. We did it the right way.”

UM strongly believes otherwise. UM will file a motion to dismiss the case with the NCAA by Friday's deadline to submit documents, even though the NCAA has told UM that the infractions committee doesn't have the authority to dismiss it. UM disagrees about that, too.

Great tweet today from ESPN’s Jay Bilas: “NCAA President: Buck stops with anyone short of me!”

By the way, it was Sean Allen who justifiably filed a Florida Bar complaint against Nevin Shapiro's attorney, Maria Elena Perez. Allegations against Perez are being reviewed by the Bar's grievance committee.

Allen was essentially duped into giving information about the UM case through the guise of a bankruptcy hearing, with the NCAA conspiring with Perez to get Allen under oath.

CaneRock

More Barry:

### Al Golden, during his weekly Monday morning segment with WQAM’s Joe Rose said “our [pass] coverage is better than at any point last fall”… said “the biggest difference” with the defense overall is “we’re getting more activity with the linebacker group”… said “a guy I’m really impressed with is Olsen Pierre.”… and praised early enrollee Alex Figueroa, asserting he will help in the pass rush and other areas.

### Rose asked Golden if there’s a chance Herb Waters could now be Miami’s best receiver. “There’s a chance,” he said. “We thought he would be a big wideout. But we’re learning he has lateral quickness and can make people miss.”

I'm glad everyone thinks our second line of defense is going to be great, what about our first line?
Reggie Johnson, alias phat azz, has no business on the court. He can't move, can't guard anyone, and is a liability, plain and simple. I wouldn't even call him a minutes eater, even though if it minutes were food he'd eat that too! If he's hurt, just let him be a cheerleader.

So I guess you know more and are a better tactician than coach of the year Coach L. You've got to love all the genius coaches on this board, that know more than a guy being paid millions to do this, whose led his team to the sweet sixteen, and who knows the actual health status of his players.

SMH at the couch potato all star coaches

herbieibis

Hey Canesfan_1,
I'm dealing with facts and what game were you watching. The fact is Reggie is a USTA, beore injuries and girth took over he WUZ a pretty good basketball player. As far as being a genious coach, I'll reserve judgement for next year, when all his 5TH & 6TH year players are gone, then will see those millions, as you say, at work! Lastly the Herb has commented to much about b-ball this year but if I had to I would lend my expertise, to this sport as well. I've just layed low with remote in my hand eating pototoe chips, instead of actual potatoes and I'm sitting in a recliner, instead of laying on the couch!

Canesfan_1

You're entitled to your opinion. I trust what Coach L is doing a lot more than your opinion, no offense. The more minutes we can get away with Reggie having, the better. There are going to be times when we need a big body rebounding and banging in the paint and his confidence building by getting more minutes will help. Also will help with his hand, which is not 100% yet (watch him doing hand flexing on the bench during the game when he's not in)

As far as as waiting to pass judgement on coach L, if the last two years aren't enough, then I don't know what else can be done. Next year will be tougher, no doubt, but there's no way this team goes this far with Haith.

But I recommend you apply for the coaching position since you know game strategy better than Coach L:

The Dude

Best record in Hurricanes mens basketball ever! ACC regular season champs! ACC tourny champs! 2 seed, and sweet sixteen! Coach oof the year. Enough said about Coach L. The guy is the best we've ever had and its not even close.

Reggie has not played well in the tourny. But he has had some really good games this year, and when he is on, no team in the country can beat us. Great coaches utilize all of their players and try to get the best out of them. I have a feeling Reggie will redeem himself to all of us.

This one's for U, OGV...

KC McDermott and Sony Michel are choosing their schools in April. They've both stated their decision is final and they will shut their recruitment down to focus on school and football.

KC - Cane

Michel - UGA

Ohio,

McDermott is a no brainer as far as being a cane. I know there's a chance Michel is a cane until he says otherwise but I just don't have a good feeling about him either. I hope I'm wrong though...

wow michel to UGA? there are two pretty good rising sophomore running backs already there. o well.. if this is the case hopefully they will stick to their word.

For those of U that missed it, when I predicted Sony as a Cane, OGV stated he wished I predicted him to go to Arkansas. Hence the UGA prediction.

I really think he's a Cane. Him and Yearby = SET at RB

Rb's are a dime a dozen. Hope Sony comes but if he don't, we can always wait until late Jan. to start recruiting another RB and as it looks, trying not to be too sarcastic, is what we are waiting to do defensively.

CaneRock

One of my concerns with Michel though, are the relationships that He talked about in one of His interviews. He said He liked Miami's offense in that interview, but I don't recall Him mentioning Hurlie Brown, the same way He mentioned the RBs coaches from ND and UGA.

herbieibis

Okay Reggie's hand may be a little sore but what's that got to do with moving your feet and actually hustling. I say he was flexing his hand, so he could hold on to a energy bar the trainer was going to give him.

Not having an actual RB coach will hurt us with Sony. Brown is RB coach in name only.

Because when you have to goon it up in the first round, you can't have your team looking as inept at it as they did while getting run off by the Flyers in the first round last year CGNC.

Nobody said Hurly is a bad coach and is not going to be a great recruiter, which would you rather have as a coach, a guy that is more suited to the pros, a guy that has actually played the position and has coached it or a Db coach, whose never coached or played the position? Here again, I'm not saying he is not a good coach but I could probably make the case for our WR coach, who was a TE coach. I guess when they move on it will look good on their resume.

Barry Jackson...

A few quick Tuesday afternoon notes:

### UM defensive end Dyron Dye's leg injury sustained in Saturday's scrimmage is serious, but Al Golden said he isn't ready to give details yet.

### Golden said running back Dallas Crawford "is having the best spring" of anyone -- linebacker Alex Figueroa also is in that mix. Golden remains uncertain whether Eduardo Clements' neck injury will allow him to return.

### Golden said UM is "teaching" Duke Johnson "how to be a 20-carry guy, which is hard" partly because UM doesn't want to overburden him this spring, or reduce his effectiveness.

### Malcolm Lewis, still recovering from his serious ankle injury in the Georgia Tech game, was running routes before the scrimmage Saturday, which Golden called a "medical marvel." Still, he won't be cleared to practice for a few more months.

CaneRock

LMAO!
Hurns caught Dorsett slippin'.

-Towards the end of practice WR Allen Hurns put a huge hit on S Deon Bush knocking his helmet off. When Deon got up he charged at Hurns in retaliation making a small scuffle. When Deon was questioned about it after practice he replied "It's all a part of the game."

Posted by: Hassan | March 26, 2013 at 03:00 PM

I agree. I met him on a few occasions and Brown is an inspiring role model, an impressive speaker and he knows a few things about winning football. Brown played for Jimmy Johnson and he knows about the Canes' winning tradition, and Brown will help recruit the entire state of Florida. Golden hired him after interviewing several candidates, and was hired over Central's coach, Lockett, who is a good coach.

I hope we get Sony because he is really good, but so is Yearby. I heard that there is a lot of buzz about UM locally. Yearby was the second best RB to come out of Miami-Dade since Duke Johnson. Sony was the best in Broward last year and that includes Collins. It would be nice to get both plus MdDermott, and that would be a good sign for Golden's class in 2014.

I agree, The Herb calls out skunk only when it's in the air. If it's not his style to rant and rave over how great the basektball and baseball teams or the women's volleyball team is doing or whatever, it's his right but it's not like he doesn't say what he does like about the team he complains about the most at the school either.

Until Hurley Brown proves he doesn't know how to teach guys what helped him help his team earn him those rings on his hand he and Barrow floss, I got no problem with him working with Coley and the RB's.

Sean Taylor, some say the greatest safety ever, played RB in high-school after all, there's a little transferable overlap between the prototype player at each spot IMO and Soldinger will always field calls from Brown if he picks up the phone and wants to talk about coaching the position I'm sure.

Michel is not going to look at what background his coaches had before making his decision. He might look at results.

For example, UGA's RB coach, Tony Ball, coached WRs at UGA and at UT Chatanooga before he became RB coach.

Gators RB coach, Brian White, coached tight ends in 2010.

There are many examples of coaches switching positions or coaching positions they have never coached before and going on to success.

Hurlie Brown could be the next one, and I think Golden knows what he is doing. In the last 10 years, I have not seen our Canes team play as good as it has played under Golden this spring.

They played fast, the got line up and ran plays fast. There ere few mistakes, and everyone seemed to know their assignments. The RBs looked very good, including Dallas Crawford, who improved a lot since last year. I am sure Brown is teaching them well. Brown and the Canes will do well this season.

OVG,
Have you turned over a new leaf, not taking the Bi-partisan side as usual. You guys read into, whatever you want, to what the Herb says. I never said Hurly Brown wasn't a good coach but I did say he's never been a running backs coach. I mean it's like asking Ken Dorsey to coach the O-Line. I'm sure he'd get the hang of it, eventually.
Sean Taylor, I would say was the greatest college saftey ever and was on his way to being maybe the best ever in the pros and I believe he was an all-state running back in high school. Most RB's are instinctive runners, so I don't know how much a Rb coach can help but when it comes to recruiting and a kid is looking at his position coach, eye candy and credintials mean alot on that resume.

Bigwindy,
Common man, Spring All-Americans mean zilch. Propaganda, nothing more. Show me the results in the Fall. I've enjoyed these history lessons today and these are the kind of blogs the Herb gets into, spirited!
Here's one for all you Gator haters, which I have them right beside FSU & N.Dame on the hate scale, Their verbal QB recruit Wil Grier, plays here in N.C. for some tiny private school and threw for about 5,000 yds last year and 60 something TD's, truly plays against sisters of the poor competition and this dude is a 4 star. In some cases this is where the system is messed up. He plays against nobody's.

How many turd fans are going to part with the monthly subscription service fee for the website if they got to pay to read that kind of stuff herb or he was listed less than 4 on a 5 scale? They'd feel burned up and would claim the card was stolen and used without their permission to get the money back quicker than it takes Teblow to touch underage Philippine wang and smile at the feel of it all upon seeing that kind of analysis.

Thank you team doctor for doing what Pimp should have done long ago -- sit Reggie's fat azz. That doctor knows he's a giant liability on the court, so make sure you don't clear him to make the trip. Team Doc just made the canes a much stronger team! you the man 'doc!!!

Reggie not making the trip!!! Sweet Jesus this is better than those pizza rolls (which have clearly shown up on your gut!).

Sorry, OGV if DoughBoy was hurt and Coach L kept playing him despite his obvious suckiness, that was terrible coaching.

BEERicane,

Me & Papa Coke just saw it on the news. He's saying our PIZZA THE HUT, Doughboy & fat azz jokes is the reason why they've made him stay home. We exposed the truth behind his sorry play. The knee injury is just a cover up. COKESPIRACY! Lmao

j.w.

I really hope that Figueroa lives up to the hype in the season. I'm still tempering my expectations, we've seen so many spring ball standouts disappear when things matter. Having said that, I hope he is the exception.

Reggie Reggie Reggie! Son being young, fat and lazy is no way to go through college.

^ yet, that's exactly what he did.
