If game 1 is any indication, this Montreal/Boston series is gonna be a GOOD ONE!

Where's Monty and UpNorth at to fight about this game? Lol

The Dude

I tried to tell you Lurker. I was probably the first. You gotta have more to add here than just insulting VERY good bloggers and killing conversations. Eventually people start seeing your troll-like behavior. I'm not trying to start arguing with you again, but you are lurking back into your troll-like ways.

Lurker

Catching dolphin is fun and tasty

Rays win, Marlins win!!!

raizecane

Giddy Up!!

TSully...My wife Maria and I are VERY proud of U. We saw your recent photo on Facebook tonight and we noticed a HUGE difference in U. U go man, U go!

Ohio_Cane

Wow, Subban with a rocket past Tuuka for the win

Terrance Sullivan

86 Thank U very much. U and your wife Maria rock.

Montreal_Cane

Miami Hurricanes Ranked 7th Best Logo in all of Sports...Look who is at no.2...

Hassan

Thompson back in the middle of the lineup will really be good, not liking him as a fielder though..... hope he is back though if we make the CWS.... Great kid, though guy.


Lurker tell me what you think of Patchan. I think Patchan would be AWESOME with a RS year. Pathan is lONG but he is LEAN, prob will show up around 230, if he could EE it would be great but a RS year would do him wonders. Let him bulk up to 255 or so at 6'5.5 with his first step he would be Elite. Guys i saw this kid at camp and the staff was DROOLING over this kid, he was neck and neck with Chad Thomas who he was dueling with in the drills.

UMike

Got to love Rivals... this is the header for a JJ article..

"Miami Killian High School DB Jaquan Johnson remains a high priority Cane commitment. And his good friend Jordan Cronkrite, a recent UM commitment, is working to get him on board with UM. So what's the latest with Johnson? Don't miss what he's talking about."

In one short paragraph them manage to call him a commit AND say UM is working to get him on board. SMH

Lurker

Hassan, if he was neck and neck with Chad Thomas then that's great news. As far as Patchan red shirting, that would be the best situation if we can do it. There's a few guys that could have benefitted from a RS year, but we've been having yo throw them out there.

UMike

Also according to Rivals Miami is going hard after 3-Star DB Carlton Davis from Norland. Kid has a pretty good offer sheet with Bama, Florida, Miami, Clemson UGA and others.

Hassan

Thanks Lurker. Him being Neck in Neck with Chad Thomas is my opinion based on what i saw at that camp, but they re-ran the drill 4-5 times because they could not determine a winner. Patchan has great balance, a good first step and a great motor. of course he is young so his hand placement sucks and he needs to get bigger but to me with getting Chad Thomas that gives us a luxary of being able to RS a guy like Patchan a year behind him.

UMike

Patchan will be behind McCord, AQM, Thomas, Jackson etc so it looks like he will be a red shirt.

CaneRock

Patchan has a VERY! good 1st step.

UMike

I have a very good first step also, but by the 5th or 6th step Im out of breath haha

CaneRock

Just found out a kid I used to coach, has committed to one of the Big 3. I have nothing to do with His accomplishment, as He was a stud anyway, but it's still good to hear.

Lurker

Hassan, even if he's doing 80% of what Chad is doing, that's still elite in my book.

Terrance Sullivan

LOL UMike same here very tired after about the 5th step.

86Cane

I have a very good first step also, but by the 5th or 6th step Im out of breath haha

UM has overcome a slow start, and the Canes (32-13) are now the hottest team in the nation, having won 19 of their past 20 games.

BY SUSAN MILLER DEGNAN
SDEGNAN@MIAMIHERALD.COM

Tyler Palmer, Willie Abreu and Zack Collins say they knew all along that this year’s Hurricanes baseball team was a winner.

It just took a little while for reality to catch up to talent.

The three, who hit for a composite .472 at Clemson last weekend as the Nos. 2, 3 and 4 batters in the lineup, are part of a Hurricanes contingent that has kept Miami the hottest team in the nation since late March.

Evidence:

The Canes (32-13 overall), in first place in the Atlantic Coast Conference (19-5), are 19-1 in their past 20 games.

UM, ranked as high as fourth by Collegiate Baseball and 10th by Baseball America, has the nation’s longest road-winning streak of 12 games.

UM is 11-1 in one-run games this season.

Miami’s starting rotation of left-handers Chris Diaz (7-0), Andrew Suarez (4-2) and Bryan Radziewski (4-2) have combined to allow only 25 earned runs in their past 15 starts.

Freshman closer Bryan Garcia has 13 saves and a 1.98 ERA.

“It’s crazy, right?” said outfielder/designated hitter Abreu, one of several freshmen who are contributing to the resurgence of a program that has four national titles but has not been to Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series since 2008. “Like I said in the beginning of the year, we just had to get used to playing with each other.

“Now we’re rolling, and it feels great.”

From CIS:


Carlton Davis & Jaquan Johnson Rivals

Carlton Davis

-Says "I've been talking to coaches - coach Hurlie (Brown), coach Paul Williams and coach (Al) Golden," . "They talk about the facilities, what a great place Miami would be for me."

-Says UM "is one of the schools recruiting me hardest - South Carolina is also recruiting me that hard. Those are the two showing me the most interest."

-plans to narrow things down this summer.

-Says UM "They'll make it for sure,"

-hopes to announce a final decision before his senior season.

-Says "I want to do it before the season just in case anything happens (injury-wise so he will still have a scholarship),"

-Says a draw for him to UM's program is that "it's close to home. My family just loves UM because it's the hometown school. They say they want me to go to Miami - I say `I'm thinking about it.'"

-Says Of what he's looking for in a college program, "Education - the classes, if they're crowded or more one-on-one with the teacher. And the environment, whether there's a large fan base, beautiful weather. And also the program, how the team's doing, and the depth chart. I want to play early."


Jaquan Johnson

-On Jordan Cronkrite "We're close friends," "He says I should come to Miami."

- in no rush to make a decision, though. He says he hasn't narrowed anything down. So far he's taken unofficial visits to Miami, Florida State, Florida, UCF and USF, and he's planning to take out of state trips by the end of summer as well.

-summer visit stops as LSU, Alabama, Louisville and Ohio State.

-Says "I'm looking for a place where I want to live for four years," "I'll be looking at the players that are there, who I'll be looking up to. And the coaches, my coach, the DB coach, I have to have a good relationship with him."

-communicates on a daily basis with Hurricane coaches.

-Says "They tell me about the new uniforms, their facilities," "They say they want me to be a part of their program, that I can be a big difference maker on their team."

-plans to name a top five at some point before his season begins.

-Asked if UM will make the cut -Says "It's a big possibility. Miami talks to me all the time. They are one of the best schools that keep in communication with me all the time."

-Says of Miami's program that "I just like how they play young players. I've been to practices, and the intensity is amazing and how the coaching is. That's what I really like about that."

VA Cane

Lurker,

you can criticize my football attacks, ideas, philosophies, and schemes all you want. That is never a problem. They work for me and my teams have been very successful for 36 years, but that does not put them off limits.

I started umpiring baseball at 12, working at the Rec Dept in my home town. I called a lot of games and got to know a lot of kids. As a sophomore, I began participating in baseball and football clinics for kids. At 55, I have been involved with kids for 43 years. Coaching, encouraging, mentoring, teaching, tudoring, umpiring, and trying to lead and show young people to a better life. I have coached ages 6-21. Boys and girls. Football, baseball, basketball, track, wrestling, and softball. Sandlot, middle school, high school and college. I do all in my power to see them succeed in Life Family School Sports in that order. I have 2 young men in the NFL. I have 17 playing college football and baseball. I expect 2 to be drafted next week. They reached these heights on their own. I like to think I helped a little along life's road. I have never made a dime doing this, but I feel like the worlds richest man. Maybe you have never experienced the elation of helping the young people; say what you may, they are the future for you and I.

So when you make a snide remark; and it was meant to be, you know it, questioning how I work with my team does anger me. You have not been on here long, but these good people will tell you this is my calling, my lifes work. I am dedicated to developing young people in the 4 phases I listed above, and I am a fair taskmaster. Life is all about TEAM in everything we do regardless of race, color, creed, religion, or gender. Thats my mission in a nutshell. I have said my piece, and will comment on this no more.

"There comes a time when you realize that you are closer to the end than to the beginning. You wonder whether it was all worthwhile; whether your being there at any time made any difference at all".
-Colonel Nicholson
Bridge Over The River Kwai

Not bragging or gloating, but I can say yes it has been worthwhile and yes I made a difference; I am elated to have had the opportunity.

VA Cane

I can remember not that many years ago when I ran sprints with my guys, even at 45 46 I could really run. Now my guys are so fast I don't bother.....they are burners big time. They love to ride me about my legendary speed... their words not mine. I was a blazer in college and HS. I remember Curtis Dickey from TA&M running a second half kickoff back against us 104 yards. After the game I was chatting up is fullback, George Woodard, who introduced me to CD. He was real modest, shy....hell of a tailback. So I am saying man you are super fast...hell he ran like a 9.7 hundred was a world class sprinter, track guy and all. Woodard says CD tell him about your hundred this spring...1976 you still ran 100 yd dash. CD says well it was fast....I had heard the 9.7 deal. Woodard is egging him on tell him tell him..CD says 10.35 flat....I am confused....Woodard goes finish it man lay it on the man....CD says..well..in full pads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unreal speed.....that is fast shit!!!!

While on the subject of other sports, I must say I never watch the NBA in the regular season. However, I have watched a lot of the playoffs to give it a second chance. While the fundamentals on a lot of players are lacking, the shot selection is questionable at times, there is not that much D and teams do not work to build leads, the games have been very exciting. I have really enjoyed watching them just as a game, as a fan. I do not do fan real well, because of playing and coaching football. Guess I got that disease. I watch football but I analyze it often. Bball is not my game, so I have said just watch. I have really enjoyed the games as they have been close, as are the series. On top of it all, the Comish stood tall in the Clipper fiasco. I like the stance he took. Lebron has spoken very professionally about it. Thanks NBA its fun again and toleration of racism was beat down. Great job so far!!!!

Posted by: CaneRock | May 03, 2014 at 08:36 AM

Shortest off-season of all the major sports, so in a way, you're right, it never really ends, just takes a break to draft and then goes right back at it a few days later.

NativeCane

SOUP, who you got in the Derby? I see Todd Pletcher has 4 entries with Danza and Intense Holiday at 8-1.

California Chrome comes in as the favorite at 5-2 but Cali horses dont fare well in the Derby, maybe today will change history.

Cant count Baffert out but he comes in at 20-1 with Chitu and mt boy Calvin Bo-Rail is seated on Ride on Curlin at 15-1.

We got a Canes connection with General A Rod at 15-1 who won, placed, or showed in all 5 of his races in Florida and is one hell of a good looking horse.

Wicked Strong won the Wood Memorial and looks good at 6-1.

Im going with Intense Holiday with a late surge and win with Wicked Strong to place second and Danza third!

What say U?

Dem Canes!!!

I can't remember the year but I had just got a $500 bonus check from work and I wanted to put $300 on a horse named War Emblem because I thought the name was cool. So I went home and tried to place a bet online, but I could only get dialup out where I was living, could never get the site to load right and didn't place the bet.

The Dude

Sometimes I think they give out 2 Stanley Cups a year CR.

NativeCane

Dude, that would have been a great wager, War Emblem had a good chance for the triple crown but stumbled out of the gates to a rough start in the Belmont!

Raize, if Maidana hits Floyd with 1 of his legendary body shots, Floyd is gonna spill his guts, literally! Lol

VA Cane

Raize,

absolutely spot on. I rarely watch reg season NBA, and some playoffs, but these are fantastic. I am glad to see it. I wish there was a little more D, and some shot selection is iffy, but hey I am sitting back and watching as a fan!! Enjoy them big guy!!!!

I love the steps Comish took, he did the the right thing for sure. All these far right people saying you cannot get him out etc. Rules are rules, and he needs to be out with his way of looking at things. Good riddance!!!

Cali Chrome the class of the field in the 140th Kentucky Derby:

Steven Coburn and Perry Martin's favored California Chrome, ridden by Victor Espinoza, took command at the head of the stretch en route to a 1 3/4-length victory over Commanding Curve to win the 140th running of the $2,202,800 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (Grade I).

A sun-splashed crowd of 164,906, the second-largest attendance in Kentucky Derby history, watched California Chrome give jockey Victor Espinoza a second Derby victory to go with his triumph on War Emblem in 2002.

Art Sherman, 77, conditions California Chrome and became the oldest trainer to win a Kentucky Derby winner. Charlie Whittingham was 76 when Sunday Silence won the 1989 Kentucky Derby.

California Chrome paid $7, $5.60 and $4.20. Commanding Curve, ridden by Shaun Bridgmohan, paid $31.80 and $15.40 with Danza, ridden by Joe Bravo, finishing 1 ¼ lengths behind Commanding Curve in third and returning $6 to show.

It was another 2 ¾ lengths back to Wicked Strong, who was followed in order by Samraat, Dance With Fate, Ride On Curlin, Medal Count, Chitu, We Miss Artie, General a Rod, Intense Holiday, Candy Boy, Uncle Sigh, Tapiture, Harry's Holiday, Vinceremos, Wildcat Red and Vicar's in Trouble.

THE MRS. AND I PICKED 5 OF THE TOP 6 FINISHERS!

Barry:

### In the wake of Ryan Williams' injury, the idea of returning to football has crossed the mind of former quarterback David Thompson, who left the UM football team to concentrate on baseball, according to Thompson's father, Ed.

But Ed Thompson said that’s unrealistic because of David’s recovery from venous thoracic syndrome, which left him with a blood clot and necessitated the removal of a rib.

The good news: UM coach Jim Morris said Thompson, who hit .328 in 19 games, might return for postseason baseball.

"We tried to get the hospital to give him the rib as a memento but they wouldn't," Ed Thompson said. Classy move by athletic director Blake James to visit Thompson in the hospital last month.

Canes baseball loses game 2 to Alabama St, 6-5, on Saturday night to even the series at 1-1. Game 3 is going on right now, top of the 8th, Canes up 6-3, Alabama State now with 2 outs and runner on 3rd.

jcane

To the bottom of the 8th, Canes coming up, still up 6-3.

jcane

Canes win, 6-3, taking the series, 2-1, over out of conference foe, Alabama State. The U still still has a 2 game advantage in-conference over FSU, although in different divisions and with a series loss to FSU (that didn't count as an in-conference series). How this all would stack up to post-season regional decisions is beyond me and still too soon to say. Just keep winning, and preferably no losses to ACC teams along the way.

Way to go FSU!

Jameis Winston’s suspension from the Florida State baseball team is over.

Just four days after Winston's suspension from the team was announced, following his failure to pay for prepared food that he took from a grocery store Tuesday, FSU coach Mike Martin confirmed that his closer is back on the team.

“Winston is reinstated," said Martin, following the Seminoles' 7-1 victory over Minnesota Sunday. "He finished his community service and as soon as he did he came over here, and we reinstated him.”
