Powered by a career night from freshman slugger David Thompson and another strong outing from southpaw Chris Diaz, the Miami Hurricanes cruised to an 8-3 win over Wake Forest Friday night at Gene Hooks Field.

Thompson, who entered the game leading the Hurricanes (33-18, 12-13 ACC) in a number of key hitting categories, belted his fourth homerun of the season over the leftfield wall in the first. He would tack on an RBI double in the the third, matching his career high by driving in three of the team's eight runs on the night. The Miami, Fla., native has reached base in 17 consecutive games, the longest such streak of any player this season.

Diaz twirled another gem against the Demon Deacons (26-24, 7-18 ACC), holding the hosts to just one run over his seven innings of work. The Florida City, Fla., native, coming off six shutout innings in a series-opening win over St. John's, set the tone with another dominant outing, continuing an impressive personal stretch.

Over his last six starts dating back to an April 5 outing against Florida State, Diaz has allowed just two earned runs over 44.1 innings, good for a 0.40 ERA over that stretch. Diaz, who entered the match-up ranked fourth in the conference with a 1.42 ERA, manage to lower his mark with a strong performance on the hill.

The Hurricanes gave their starter a 3-0 before even stepping onto the rubber, as the team's offense tagged Wake Forest starter Justin Van Grouw (4-7) in the early going. Junior Tyler Palmer led off the game with a single roped up the middle, while senior Chantz Mack dropped a bunt for a single to build the threat with runners on the corners.

After an RBI groundout from junior Brad Fieger made it 1-0 in favor of the Hurricanes, Thompson crushed a 1-0 pitch from Van Grouw over the wall in left to increase the team's lead to three. The homerun was Thompson's first since an April 13 shot against Maryland.

The Hurricanes increased their lead in the third, stringing together four hits in the frame off Van Grouw. After leading off the frame with a single, Palmer, who took second base cleanly on a steal, was driven in on an RBI single from Mack up the middle. Fieger advanced Mack to second with a single of his own, and an RBI double from Thompson belted into the left-center gap made it 5-0.

Miami blew the game open with two runs in the seventh, as an RBI double from junior Alex Hernandez and an RBI groundout from Mack made it 7-0. Mack and Palmer tied career-high marks with three hits apiece, as four Hurricanes delivered multi-hit games in the victory.

The sixth-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team needed only 45 seconds to conclude its delayed match against UNF on Saturday, advancing to the NCAA tournament’s second round at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

Rain washed away any chance of completing the match on Friday evening, but that didn’t affect UM sophomore Lina Lilekite. The nation’s 105th-ranked player needed only two serves to complete her 6-2, 6-2 victory over the Osprey’s Marina Cunningham.

“Your two points away from winning the match,” said Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews. But, you still have to win… the girls did what they were supposed to do and they will be back in an hour to get ready for one o’clock.”

Before the delay, the Hurricanes (21-5) claimed the doubles point for the 22nd time this season. Brittany Dubins and Stephanie Wagner remained a perfect 4-0 as a team after a late-season switched paired them together. The duo cruised to an 8-4 win over the UNF combo of Taylor Hollander and Marina Cunningham at No. 3.

Just thinking out loud here, but if Jamal Carter comes in and balls out as SS, do we move Bush to CB...

YES.

There is no doubt among fans that coaching is a question on D but we were simply too young, weak and inexperienced last year. He gave a lot of specfifics during the discussion and said himself that the UM defense SHOULD be much better this year.

I say we need to be a top 50 D to do any serious damage and win more than 9 games. But U still have to remember that we lost LB Johnson, LB Paul and CB Finnie during the offseason.

At the HC event in Orlando Golden said that he would prefer to red-shirt MOST if not all incoming Freshmen as most coaches/teams are able to do but that he has not had that luxury since day one when the first self-imposed suspensions hit.

I would LOVE to see Carter and Burns redshirt BUT both are likley to play some this year as DBs and on STs.

The Dude

Bush playing inside CB in nickle like Merriweather did would make sense. I agree SOUP. Pretty much all defensive players will have to contribute. The offense got there first in regards to being able to redshirt guys. For that you can thank Erik Flowers, Duke Johnson, Ryan Williams and so many other guys that either played out well or did what's best for the team. Thank you to all those players. Finnie being stupid is why we have to play Burns.

The Dude

I don't get the Finnie thing. What a stupid move? You are a starting CB at a major football university. The NFL is watching you. You blew everything. Your scholly, the NFL, your character. Over a $400.00 laptop. Just dumb. Unbelievable.

'Plays and gets along well with others,' was probably a tough behavior grade to excel at for Thomas when he was in elementary school.

He had over a decade to figure it out though and didn't, so no need to allow him access to a campus that he thinks belongs to him along with everything located within it.

SOUP, everybody is saying the defense will be better this year, if from nothing else only being able to be worse by about seven ranks nationally, the real question is, did you buy the Al Golden fan club stump speech as to why the defense will make that dramatic leap into one of the 1/5 best squads in the country for '13?

Significant improvement is a given baseline expectation by which the real ground gained, measured as degrees of exemplary improvement, is going to be judged this year.

SOUP

OGV...YES, I "believe" what Golden said at the event, he made sense and was very specific. I do think that that the defense will get better by a significant amount this year for many reasons of which I will define and describe in an upcoming blog feature. But what I believe and what Golden says is irrelevant. The only proof will be on 12 Saturdays this Fall on the field.

Everything that U read on the Internet between now and August is pure speculation. U gotta bring it on Saturday, and the occasional Thursday, for it to matter. And we will NOT be looking for "moral victories" but the kind that really count in the W/L column.

The bottom line for 2013 is this:

Top 10 offense
Top 50 Defense
No less than 10 wins.

From hurricanesports.com

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Eight.

That’s the number of consecutive Sweet 16 appearances the sixth-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team has advanced to in the NCAA Championships.

The Hurricanes (22-5) secured their latest trip with a 4-0 win over 30th-ranked Purdue (18-6) in the tournament’s second round on Friday from the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

“Purdue is a tough team,” said Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews. They played long points… I have a lot of respect for those girls… They are a very solid team all the way through. It was a great match to prepare us to go to the next round.”

Miami will move on to Urbana, Ill., the host of this season’s NCAA National Tennis Championships, to face 11th-ranked Northwestern in the Sweet 16 on Friday. The two teams met earlier this season at the ITA National Indoor Championships in Charlottesville, Va. in February. Northwester won the match, 4-2.

Montreal-Cane

Canes just lost 5-4

Jim Morris sucks! Just a bunt freak...Cannot develop talent...Salas should have close this game not Nedeljkovic (a senior) who's mechanics is all wrong. This team is so boring and badly coached. Dale Carey is a senior and is bating .150...I like Radziewski but he will never make it to the pro with just his great curve ball...need a 2nd and 3rd pitch. The players need a U tough program they need a real weight program...Except for a few, most of the players look like anything but athletes.


The coaching staff is bad period. No excuses!!!

Make him an offer he can't refuse...

Head Coach Tim Corbin begins his 11th season at the helm of the Vanderbilt baseball program. During his tenure Corbin has turned the Commodores into a national power and taken the program to unprecedented success leading Vanderbilt to the College World Series for the first time in 2011.


For the second consecutive season (2011-12) the Commodores' freshman class was tabbed as the nation's best by Baseball America, becoming the first school in the poll's 13-year history to post back-to-back top classes. Vanderbilt's 2012 freshman class was the unanimous top class, also picking up the honor from Collegiate Baseball. Since Corbin's arrival in 2003, Vanderbilt has earned three top-ranked recruiting classes (2005) and is the only school in the nation to have more than two top classes.

Yaz the all time great!

SOUP

The Miami Hurricanes used an eighth-inning rally to overcome an early three-run deficit, but Wake Forest walked off on an RBI single from Matt Conway in the bottom of the ninth to capture game two by a final score of 5-4.

Despite a career day from freshman shortstop Brandon Lopez, who drove in all four of Miami's runs in the game, the Hurricanes fell on the late rally from the Demon Deacons. The Miramar, Fla., native, who set a new career high with four RBI's and tied a career high with three hits, gave the Hurricanes their first lead of the game with two outs on a two-RBI single in the eighth.

Though the Hurricanes (33-19, 12-14 ACC) jumped out to a commanding lead in game one, it was Wake Forest (27-24, 8-18 ACC) who struck early Saturday, tagging Hurricanes' southpaw Bryan Radziewski for three runs in the bottom of the first. RBI singles from Jack Carey and Grant Shambley keyed the successful frame for the Demon Deacons, who tacked on their third run on a botched pick-off by the Miami infield.

The Hurricanes responded well, however, getting one back on an RBI groundout from Lopez in the top of the second. Back-to-back hits from Alex San Juan (single) and Garrett Kennedy (double) set up Miami's scoring chance with runners on second and third base. Lopez, who recorded his first career homerun as a Hurricane Friday night, connected on a groundball to short deep enough to plate San Juan from third.

Another timely hit from Lopez in the fourth helped Miami cut deeper into the deficit. The first two baserunners of the frame reached, as freshman David Thompson was hit by an Austin Stadler offering and San Juan belted his second single of the game into the right-center gap. After rightfielder Joey Rodriguez' throw airmailed its way into the infield, Mark Rhine's throw to second was there in time to get an aggressive San Juan on the basepaths.

But after a four-pitch walk from Stadler to Kennedy gave Miami runners on the corners, Lopez connected on an opposite-field single that easily plated Thompson from his perch at third. The successful conversion from Lopez marked his fourth multi-RBI game this season.

With Radziewski cruising through the middle innings, Wake Forest pitching stymied rallies from Miami in the sixth and seventh.

Oh, I see Monty has it covered.

We couldn't offer Vandy's coach what he has which is a program that has an endowment program that allows for full scholarships while we can only offer partials. Stanford has similar program and with all the money the U has raised we should have something similar. Joey Z was explaining it to us the other night how they have done it. Why can't we is the question.

Barry Jackson:

### UM, which already has an oral commitment from Hialeah High’s three-star Alin Edouard, also has made offers to several other quarterbacks. Mobile, Ala.-based two-star quarterback Malik Rosier – who ran for 12 touchdowns and threw for 20 last season - told Canesport.com there’s a good chance he will accept UM’s offer over Arkansas State, Southern Mississippi and others.

And California-based Brad Kaaya, rivals.com ’s 19th-best pro style quarterback who has been compared to former FSU starter E.J. Manuel, said UM is “far ahead” of San Diego State and other suitors.

### UM coach Jim Larranaga, who has been speaking to NBA general managers about his five departing players, expects Shane Larkin to be a first-round pick in the draft --- and possibly a lottery-pick (top 14) -- and Kenny Kadji to be a second-rounder. Larranaga also has been getting questions about Reggie Johnson (who needs to lose more weight) and Durand Scott (who needs to prove to teams he can consistently hit three-pointers).

Playing quarterback in the NFL would be great, if it happens. If not, Robert Marve has a plan.

He wants to make a difference in people’s lives.

Marve already did at Plant High School, when he helped deliver the football program’s first state championship in 2006. There have been three more since then, but there’s something extra special about the first one.

Marve’s high school coach Robert Weiner has no doubt there is a future in the NFL for the former Mr. Florida for football. He said Marve possesses that “it” quality so important to a quarterback’s success.

“He’s the ultimate one who really lifts up his teammates and makes everybody better,”

The Tampa Bay Bucs gave Marve a look at last weekend’s Rookie Camp. And he’s talking to other NFL teams.

It's all part of the stupid game called "recruiting". Just like a recruit "commits" to his "dream school" (only to change his mind a week or a month later), the coaches make an "offer" to a player and leave him with the impression that "they show me a lot of love" and "I'm going to start right away".
It's like teenagers dating - sometimes it's because they really like someone, sometimes it's because there's no one else around, sometimes it's only good for bragging or annoying your rivals.

"Signing", on the other hand, is months away and a totally different story.

Monty, between you and me, the Habs quick exit has you a little extra saltier than normal at Morris, right?

I have to believe Morris bringing up the split scholarship issue in the press is an attempt to get James to equip him with the same tools his competitors have on that front. They should be so kind as to do so post haste IMO, considering the success he's brought to UM in his time there.

My brother coaches DL at Ocala Forest. He's the only one to stay on staff there with the new regime. Al Golden sent their new HC a personal letter congratulating him as the new HC of Forest and wishing him luck.

He's got a lot of ground to catch up there and time's getting into running a little short to do so.

The Miami Hurricanes received their second multi-homerun game of the weekend, but were unable to capture Sunday's rubber match, falling to homestanding Wake Forest by a final margin of 9-3.

After falling Saturday in walk-off fashion, the Hurricanes (33-20, 12-15 ACC) yielded six runs in the bottom of the eighth to send the Demon Deacons to the series victory. A poorly-fielded bunt from junior Brad Fieger resulted in the go-ahead run, while Wake Forest tacked on four more runs on RBI doubles from Pat Blair and Mark Rhine to clinch the rubber match.

Despite the outcome, some of the youngest Canes continued their impressive stretch at Gene Hooks Field, as freshman slugger David Thompson and sophomore catcher Garrett Kennedy both homered in the loss.

Thompson put Miami ahead on a solo shot in the second inning. The Miami, Fla., native, who also homered in Friday's 8-3 win, lined a 0-1 pitch from Wake Forest starter Matt Pirro over the fence in left to send the Hurricanes to the early 1-0 advantage.

Wake Forest would respond in the third, as Andrew Williams connected for a solo shot of his own off sophomore Andrew Suarez with one out in third. The southpaw worked himself into a jam after the homerun, allowing a walk and double to set up another scoring chance for the Demon Deacons. Suarez did well to avoid any further damage, however, inducing a groundout to third base to end the inning.

Miami regained a one-run advantage in the top of the fifth, and another freshman served as the catalyst. Shortstop Brandon Lopez, who drove in all four of Miami's runs in game two, connected on an infield single to lead off the inning and took second on a sacrifice bunt from Dale Carey. With two outs in the inning, junior second baseman Alex Hernandez roped a ground rule double into the right-center gap that bounced over the outfield wall, plating Lopez for the 2-1 lead.

The Hurricanes' lead quickly evaporated, as Wake Forest responded with two runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 3-2 advantage. Suarez was chased out of the game in the frame, departing after just 4.1 innings. An RBI groundout from Matt Conway off senior rigthhander Eric Whaley gave Wake its first lead of the game.

Montreal-Cane

OGV the early exit was expected with the young players and all the injuries. The Habs will need bigger (talented) players in 2014 to make a better run in the playoffs. I expect a Stanley cup final between the Pens and Chicago. My prediction the Hawks will win the Cup. And yours?

As for Jim Morris i just don't like his excuses...No. 2 Vanderbilt is also a private school...The same with Stanford.

Monty I haven't watched any NHL playoffs until game six and sevens mostly and haven't watched any western conference games all year. So with that said, Ottawa/San Jose in Bettman's nightmare scenario despite having the crew from the '12 Final series game six do every elimination game with an open line from Toronto in the earpiece to ensure otherwise.

Atlantic division was pretty weak this year and lack of inter-conference play makes it nearly impossible to accurately predict a final winner but I'll go with San Jose as the most recent lockout champs.

Harris was at UM from '08 to '11 Hassan. Long day in the spring in the graveyard of empires today I'm betting?

In regards to Edouard..I think he is just seeing and reading about these other QB recruits getting offers and might be worried. I cant honestly say IDK anything about any of the QB recruits so i cannot say who is better etc..but Edouard was offered early and is a solid Miami kid who will recruit for us. I think Golden and staff will smooth it over..imo..if not Louisville it will be

Per CIS

“When I say that my commitment isn’t strong, that doesn’t mean I’m going to decomitt. I want to be a hurricane, its just more that I’ve been getting contacted by a lot of coaches and my head has been spinning.”

Another factor that has weakened his commitment status is the lack of contact with his main recruiter, Coach James Coley.

“I haven’t talked to him often at all, I’ve even tried calling him and he doesn’t answer.”

So, what would it take Miami to make his commitment strong again?
“Just talking to me again, and just make me feel home again; the way I felt when I committed. When I first committed to Miami, they were calling me every week, but now I haven’t heard from them.”

Hopefully he understands that he isnt the only player Miami is recruiting and coaches get busy...I think he will still be in this class

Although Hialeah’s Alin Edouard is currently committed to Miami, James Coley has been hot on the trail of multiple out of state signal-callers. Malik Rosier of Mobile, Alabama and Brad Kaaya from West Hills, California could be Miami Hurricanes within the next month if everything goes as planned.

In an interview yesterday with CanesInSight’s Tito Benach, Edouard said he hasn’t been speaking to Coach Coley.

“I haven’t talked to him often at all. I’ve even tried calling him and he doesn’t answer.”

Edouard also had this to say, “When I say that my commitment isn’t strong, that doesn’t mean I’m going to de-commit. I want to be a Hurricane, its just more that I’ve been getting contacted by a lot of coaches and my head has been spinning.”

The full story on Edouard can be seen here: http://canesinsight.com/content/1713...ves-the-Latest. As for Kaaya and Rosier, both hold Miami offers and have the ‘Canes on top. Interestingly, both also plan to compete at the June 1st Al Golden Football Camp. Kaaya was on campus back in March and told me last week that Miami was his leader and he plans on announcing in June: http://canesinsight.com/content/1710...ing-next-month

While Kaaya has had his offer since mid-March, Rosier received his offer from Miami last Monday. The night before Rosier was offered by the ‘Canes, this is what he had to say about the possibility of the offer coming.

“It would be hard for me not to commit, but me and my mom talked and she’s one of those people that doesn’t want me to commit until the season because she wants me to see places so she’s not gonna let me commit until actually right before the season starts. Me and Coach Coley talked and I already told him it’s gonna be hard not to take that opportunity. Right now, Miami is my number one so it will be a dream come true if they offer.”

I spoke with Rosier tonight and he had some interesting comments.

“I found out about the offer through Coach Coley and I was excited about the offer. It was a little tough not to commit, but I don't wanna commit too early. I wanna see the campus and feel the environment before committing. I plan on making my choice at the beginning of football season,” said Rosier.

The 6’2”, 210-lb Alabama product will get a look at Miami’s campus on June 1st and that could help seal the deal for the ‘Canes.

The California native Kaaya had some Cane-friendly tweets this week.

PER 247 & CIS..


DB Arrion Springs update

Info from the Texas 247 site:

Texas is behind Miami and Oregon, Miami at the top because the staff offered after watching HLs, Oregon coming to visit him in a month or so, Miami and Oregon clear leaders, #125th ranked overall prospect and #10 overall CB according to 247, 5-11 192 with elite speed and the skills to play corner or safety, Texas still in it because of facilities, tradition, and the fact they have the most active DBs in the NFL, has a good relationship with Paul Williams, says the future is bright in S FL, will be visiting Miami and Oregon this Summer, doesn't expect too strict of sanctions at either school, some quotes:

“The only way I'm not going to pick Miami or Oregon is if the bowl bans and sanctions are too severe, then I'll see what's out there,” Springs said. “Texas and maybe Oklahoma are the two schools that could change my mind.”

“I actually talked to him the night of the [NFL] draft,” Springs said. “He was telling me what he was doing in New York with Kenny [Vaccaro] and basically just telling me that putting DBs in the NFL is what they do.

“It goes with the whole DBU thing and it lets you know that it's something they take great pride in at Texas.”

“They're trying to get their program back on the map, and the fact that they want me to help is a big honor,” Springs said. “Coach Williams is my type of coach. I like the way Coach Golden and his staff do things. They're doing it the right way. And you really can't go wrong with a city like Miami.”

“They have top of the line facilities and Coach [John] Neal is a great coach,” Springs said. “He's an underrated coach, but he's very good. I like their playing style on defense and it seems like a nice area to live.”

“If it's too bad it could mess up the chances of me going to either school,” Springs said. “Miami has told me it's been quiet but they're anticipating some kind of probation. Oregon might a two-year probation, or something like that, but they said they want to talk to me more in-depth about that later.”
