Gotta repost it from the end of last blog. Interested in people's thoughts on the basketball team's chances of being a late season shocker given such close games to top ranked teams in the conference so far.
--------------------------
Two key questions to ponder:

1. The U plays everyone pretty close in hoops but usually loses in the end while giving the opponent a scare (luckily not tonight vs the Noles...nice win!). Coach L has this team playing as well as they can. Question: Does any team really want to draw them in the ACC tnmt as a low seed???

2. We all know Coach G. can recruit fairly well, and hopefully even better next year without the cloud of the NCAA overhanging. If so, will he start to win or will he become our version of Ron Zook, leaving a pretty good cupboard for his successor? Just don't even think about mentioning Urban there, or I'd be forced to give up my allegiance for all eternity!

Way to go, Coach L. You coach out of your mind!

No Dude I think a coach is judged when he's been given the opportunity to build his team without restriction.

Posted by: Go Canes | February 10, 2014 at 09:16 PM


Sorry, that's too long. The scholarship restrictions last beyond 2015, so his "opportunity to build his team without restriction" doesn't even START by 2015 under this definition.

2) Most misused Cane in college
3) Most successful first year Canes pro relative to draft status

No, I'm not his agent, but wish I were.

Funny,

Go Canes says a topic is tired, so I change it and we're all talking about fastest Canes and glory days and fond memories and he had nothing to say. Tonycane mentions 2015 and what do you know? Go Canes is standing by his man when the subject wasn't even really on him. Then my post about not being able to judge Golden in 2014 disappears. What gives?

### A name you’ll be hearing a lot in the coming year: Coconut Creek Monarch senior-to-be receiver Calvin Ridley, who is rated an even better prospect than Stacy Coley was at this time in his development.

Rivals.com rates Ridley the No. 2 receiver and 11th best player overall in the 2015 class. Some expect he will pick UM, but he insisted to the Tennessee Volunteers’ Rivals.com web site that he has no front-runner. He’s also considering Alabama, UF, FSU and Ohio State, among others. He will be a big priority for UM, especially with Phillip Dorsett entering his senior season.

"I'm open to everyone right now," he told rivals.com. "I can't say one team leads."

### UM defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio is very happy with his secondary. “Excited about our safeties, getting Kiy Hester and Marques Gayot,” he told UM’s web site. “Two really good safeties. The important thing about getting safeties is finding guys who played the position in high school. These are true safeties --- can cover, can tackle, the whole package.

“You're starting to see more and more guys [on the UM roster] look alike at those positions as far as characteristics of those positions, the size, the athleticism. We've created a lot more depth. [And] we're fortunate we haven't lost any corners” from last year.

Tito workin...

The Miami Central (Fla.) Rockets are coming off their second state championship and as always are looking to reload for next year already. 2015 defensive end Fermin Silva is one of the many senior leaders who is looking to contribute the same amount or even more effort to get back there again.

“It feels really good knowing that I’ve been to states all of my football years. It feels very great because all the hard work paid off. I’m working hard everyday and keeping the kids focused. This is going to be a big year because not only is it my last year, but people think that just because Joe (Yearby) and Dalvin (Cook) are gone that we aren’t gonna go back, but we have a lot to prove as a team.”

Silva played a very prominent role in the Rockets defense this past season as he contributed to their ferocious pass rush and he thanks the coaches for calling on him early.

“It meant to me that the coaches believed in me and they trusted me to do it and they needed me to help my team and put my team on my back. We needed it when Joe (Yearby) went down and I put it on my back to help my team.”

Recruiting wise, Silva is still getting exposure and looking to hear from more schools.

“Schools that are in contact with me are UM,USF and Appalachian State offered me. I talk to UM, FSU, Alabama, Louisville, Michigan and Purdue. Those are all the schools are interested.”

The South Florida Bulls are an intriguing school for Silva because of the familiarity with his former head coach Telly Lockette who is the running backs coach there.

“With USF, there’s a lot of players there that I played with so it would feel like home and I have coach (Telly) Lockette there and he was like a dad to me so that wouldn’t be a problem at all since I know he would be there for me.”

The hometown Miami Hurricanes are in contact with the 6’1 215 pound rush end prospect and he made it clear where he stands with them.

“I’m just waiting for the offer and all the coaches know me and they talk about me in the meetings. I’m just waiting for the offer right now.”

The Miami Central product does admit the ‘Canes would sit in a good position if they were to offer.

“They would be tied for first. It’s home it feels like home, the chance to play with Joe (Yearby) and Trevor (Darling) it would be amazing. The coaches love me a lot and I like them too and they push you with school work which I like a lot. The history also, I looked up to a lot of players that came from there.”

More Tito...

2015 Gulliver (Fla.) linebacker Dominic Sheppard is considered one of the top linebacker in south Florida for his class. He played a pivotal role in helping his teams defense last year.

“I felt like I did good; I had a minor wrist injury, but that didn’t hold me back because I felt like I did a good job. I switched from defensive end from my tenth grade year and now I’m playing middle linebacker.”

Sheppard racked up 93 tackles last season along with one interception return for a touchdown. Despite the impressive stat line, Sheppard is still looking to improve upon his game and get better this offseason.

“I want to improve on reading plays, like diagnosing the play before it happens. I might just run track or I might join the Florida Fire South team.”

The 6’2 200 pound middle linebacker has been receiving college interest from schools dating back to his freshman year. While schools from all over the nation are contacting Sheppard, he claims to have no leaders.

“I don’t have a list of who I like the most right now, but I have Alabama, Louisville, I have Miami, Ohio State, Clemson, Tennessee and some other schools I really can’t think of right now.”

The Gulliver product spoke a little bit about the Crimson Tide and how they fit in to his recruiting picture.

“Alabama is recruiting me the hardest, coach (Mario) Cristobal came to my school over four times to see me. I like about it because of the nice facilities and they produce linebackers like Donta Hightower and CJ Mosley.”

The hometown Hurricanes are also recruiting the 2015 prospect as well and he is intrigued by the number of talented athletes on the Miami team.

“You can tell who who the playmakers are and they get them better. They carry their linebackers like the heart of their team, like Denzel Perryman. I look at him a lot and I compare my stats to him sometimes.”

The highly recruited south florida linebacker is being recruited by both Al Golden and Michael Barrow and elaborated on the type of person the head coach is.

“Coach Golden is a great guy, I haven’t talked to him lately this year ,but from my experience last year he’s a great guy. I most likely talk with Michael Barrow this year and we talk about linebacker scheme’s and the program.”

Sheppard is planning to see some schools during the summer including Oregon, LSU and Florida State.

As far as when a decision will be made, the tentative date is set for following Sheppard’s season.

What will it take to land the second team All-Dade linebacker?

“Playing time, I want to see if they can get me better and whats going to be my future and like where I’m going to be in 4 years and the environment.”

Ariz...

Booker T. Washington is the preeminent football powerhouse in South Florida and maybe the entire country. The program produces top division-1 talent every year and is on the heels of its second state title in a row. Those two constants don’t look like they will be ending any time soon. Meet 2016 CB Dontye Carriere-Williams (5-10, 162), who is already being touted as the next elite defensive prospect to come from BTW.

Carriere-Williams is making waves early in the 7-on-7 circuit and was one of the most impressive prospects at the South Florida Express tryouts. So just how good was that F-5 Tornadoes secondary this season?

“With the talent we had in the secondary, I barely got onto the field. This year will be a new start for me. I knew my time was going to be coming soon so I was able to just learn from those guys. With the seniors going to college, this will be my time to step up and be a leader so it will be great,” said Carrier-Williams.

The young defensive back prospect could have easily played and started at nearly any other school in Miami, but he feels like the Booker T. Washington coaches will help him get to the next level.

“They keep me humble and match sure you keep working. They don’t want the hype to get to you.”

For a sophomore, Carriere-Williams already has excellent size. How would he describe himself as a player?

“I’m very physical, quick, and explosive. I’ll be working on my footwork a lot now during the spring.”

Many critics have bashed the development of 7-on-7 football across the country and particularly in South Florida, but Carriere-Williams is excited to begin his journey with the South Florida Express.

“The exposure and great players I’ll be playing with on one team will be great. Darnell Solomon from Champagnat, Kahlil Lewis from Miramar, and Dredrick Snelson from American Heritage are some of the good receivers out there, said Carriere-Williams. “The battles are very competitive, physical, and fun.”

It is almost too early to even mention recruiting with a sophomore, but the process has sped up so much to the point that it is a necessary question.

“I have an offer from Troy and Clemson is showing me a lot of love. It’s actually a surprise with me not really getting on the field last year so it’s kind of shocking.”

Are the hometown Miami Hurricanes a program he has interest in?

“Yeah, most definitely. I grew up a fan of Miami and I live here so it’s second nature. The legends that they’ve put in the game is amazing. I love it.”

SOUP

No comments about basketball?

UMike

Ummm.. I hope UM basketball wins! lol

UMike

Im not a college basketball fan, of course I will root and support Miami, but dont follow it.

SOUP

1. Is there any other sport where a team that is losing INTENTIONALLY commits a foul or a penalty to try to win the game?

2. I thought the whole idea behind a foul or penalty was to punish the team or player committing them, not to help the team win?

3. How can any sport support a concept where a team repeatedly and intentionally commits a foul at the end of a contest in an effort to win the game?

That is stupid and contrary to what sports is all about!

UMike

SOUP.. its basketball strategy... force the other team to make their foul shots. The team being fouled is "rewarded" with foul shots. Its not stupid, its part of the game.

SOUP

UMike...I KNOW it is a strategy...DUH!

Answer the questions I posed above.

UMike

1 - No

2 - This is a statement, not a question.

3 - They support it because it is part of the game and game strategy. The team is rewarded free throws which means they do no have to run their offense and hope for a score, they can calmly get a couple free points. So its not like its "oh poor me I get to shoot free throws"... the team being fouled is helped as well as long as they make their shots. Also, this idea RARELY works

UMike

The team being fouled is rewarded with free throws and the team doing the fouling is penalized because the other team gets free throws... its not as bad as you think lol

UMike

SOUP

1 - No

Posted by: UMike | February 11, 2014 at 08:10 AM

And there U have it!

Basketball is the ONLY sport that openly encourages and even actually incentivizes the intentional violation of the sports rules (committing a foul) in an effort to win a game.

That is a seriously flawed game.

Compare the same scenario in any other sport and tell me how that works?

SOUP

The way to fix it is to award three foul shots whenever an intentional foul is committed in the last two minutes of the game.

Nobody wants to watch 8 consecutive intentional fouls being committed and the last minute of the game making 60 seconds last 15 minutes due to all of the stoppages and foul shots.

UMike

SOUP... you're looking WAY to much into this lol... the sport itself does not "openly encourage" this, it is simply part of the game. You cant compare to other sports... cause their other sports. Again, the team gets free throws, they get rewarded.

Native thanks, it was crazy! We came out early and went up.. they slowly came back and took the lead, we then tied and with about a minute left we hit a free throw to go up 1. Almost the whole 4th quarter both teams were in the penalty, so there were a lot of tense moments when the other team was shooting their free throws lol

"Apparently, Buddy Ryan had a scheme when he was with the Houston Oilers in which he’d use 14 players on defense in a goal line situation, intending to stop the run while drawing a penalty to burn time off the clock. The amusing part of this is that, ever the slave to detail, Ryan actually illustrated the formation and showed where the extra players should be positioned."

1. Who is talking about a COACH? I am talking about the sport in general and the rules that govern it. And YES, both college basketball and the NBA cares if I want to ewatch because I represent revenue to both in the form of ticket sales and TV ad revenue. So the more that go to the games and the more that watch on TV means MORE $$$. That makes them care and care a LOT!

2. Again, I will say it S L O W L Y for U: ANY sport that encorages and incentivizes breaking the rules to win is simply a flawed sport.

3. If Miami did it I would dislike it just as much because it is the concept that I am opposed to on principle, not to a team winning or losing, even IF it is "my team". I am above compromising my priciples even if it means my team loses a silly, meaningless game.

UMike

SOUP... dude... take a pill or something. You're looking into this WAY to much bro.... dont do that "SLOWLY" shyt neither like Im a idiot....the team being fouled is REWARDED with free throws... get over it already lol... EVERY sport is flawed..... get off the rocking chair my friend lol

Adrienne Talan. SS/OLB. 6'1" 195lbs 4.4

Told yall about him last year when I posted his Sophomore film (with only a handful of games) and now I'm updating yall with his Junior tape. Receiving interest from UNC, Pitt and a few others. Very, very physical player who plays 100mph.

He just transferred to Flanagan High School a couple weeks ago. Be on the look out. I think he might be able to play Safety for us. Very physical and very rangy.

I don't think most people would take my post literally, I was pointing out, in the context of that conversation, that I'd rather start the future now instead of waiting.

I later acknowledged other peoples opinion to the contrary.

I totally agree with this. The intentional grounding rule should cover ANY situation where the ball is grounded on purpose, not just to evade a pass rush.

"Intentional grounding will be called when a passer, facing an imminent loss of yardage due to pressure from the defense, throws a forward pass without a realistic chance of completion."

Old Skool

Native. I hope she's okay.

UMike

30... I know the rule, but my point is it is allowed when its obvious it is only to stop the clock. Just weird that its allowed to happen.

True, I guess the penalty is losing the down.

UMike

True, you lose a down, but gain the much more needed advantage of stopping the clock lol... its also weird that when everyone is set and the QB takes a step or two towards the line (see P. Manning) before the snap and its not a false start lol... he lifts his leg and then steps towards the line before the snap.. weird

Posted by: UMike | February 11, 2014 at 10:07 AM


I think that if a team deliberately avoids trying to advance the ball, they shouldn't be allowed to pocket the extra yardage from the incomplete pass. If you spike the ball, the marker should move back to the place where the 'pass' was thrown, just the way it is with the current intentional grounding rule.

CaneRock

UMike, I got a bball statistical question for you...let's say you pass the ball to somebody, and that person gets foued in the act of shooting, and makes both successive FTs...my question is, does the passer get an assist?

Kickers false start all the time and don't get called.

CR, no they don't.

SOUP... how about this... why isnt a QB called for intentional grounding when he spikes the ball???? lol

Posted by: UMike | February 11, 2014 at 09:46 AM


I totally agree with this. The intentional grounding rule should cover ANY situation where the ball is grounded on purpose, not just to evade a pass rush.

I also agree 100%. It SHOULD be banned from football.

At the current time it is NOT considered a penalty so it is not an intentional violation of the games rules, but that policy should changed and it should become a penalty.

The rule change should make them throw it past the LOS and out of bounds near a WR.

CR, no they don't.

Correct Ohio_Cane...but my thing is, why isn't it an assist? It was a pass, that led to a score, wasn't it?

I just want our Canes basketball and baseball teams to win especially against Notre Dame, FAU, Florida, and Boston College. Go Canes!

Why is football called "foot ball"? The feet are used only for kickoffs, field goals, and punts. The majority of plays, hands are used.

SOUP

GO...while I understand the intent of your comment about 8 vs 10 wins and setting up the future and all and realize there was no maliciousness in it, in hindsight I think you will agree that it was a pretty foolish thing to say, right?

"U play to win the game!"

SOUP

UMike...BTW the football analogy was a good one and a clear attempt to step outside yourself and think "outside the box". I am very impressed by that action young man!

Coach L is coaching his ass off this season. Good win!

Ohio / UMike...watch the store, SOUP is O U T!

UMike

UMike, I got a bball statistical question for you...let's say you pass the ball to somebody, and that person gets foued in the act of shooting, and makes both successive FTs...my question is, does the passer get an assist?

Posted by: CaneRock | February 11, 2014 at 10:16 AM

I have often thought the same thing lol... it SHOULD be, but isnt

UMike

I should be banned for two days for saying I'd rather take my lumps with Kaaya early instead if prolonging the inevitable one more year?

I don't think most people would take my post literally, I was pointing out, in the context of that conversation, that I'd rather start the future now instead of waiting.

I later acknowledged other peoples opinion to the contrary.

I suggest you look at the hate spew you post that get you removed from here instead of worrying what I think.

Posted by: Go Canes | February 11, 2014 at 09:23 AM

I am not saying you should be banned or put in "time out" etc, but you clearly said you would take 2 losses just to start Kaaya. Don't come back later after everyone called you out and change it to "we should take our lumps with Kaaya".. that is NOT what you said. Besides, Kaaya is not a shoe-in favorite to start lol... there have been many a 4-Star QB come to UM that was suppose to be the next Dorsey, so lets not get to far ahead of ourselves.

Marc Guillon - 4 Star
Kyle Wright - 5 Star
Kirby Freeman - 4 Star
Robert Marve - 4 Star
Jacory Harris - 4 Star


All highly rated guys...We still have highly regarded 4-Star Kevin Olsen on the roster as well. Just saying you shouldnt assume Kaaya will be a 4 year or even a 3 year started when the kid isnt even on campus yet.

UMike
