GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Miami’s Dale Carey and North Carolina’s Parks Jordan have been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Baseball Players of the Week, while Clemson’s Daniel Gossett picked up ACC Pitcher of the Week honors for the second time this season.

Carey, a senior outfielder from Marietta, Georgia, powered Miami to its fourth consecutive ACC road sweep this past weekend, leading the Hurricanes with a .429 batting average in three games against Duke (6-for-14). Carey, who hit his first career grand slam in Saturday’s 9-1 victory, led the team in RBIs on the weekend (six) and was a perfect 3-for-3 in stolen base attempts. He delivered a game-tying RBI single early in game three, and jumpstarted a key game-tying rally later in the game with a leadoff double off Duke ace Mike Matuella.

FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said he did not consider suspending Jameis Winston from football after he was cited for shoplifting last month.

Fisher said baseball was far more important to Winston at the time of the incident than football.

“He’s in baseball right now,” Fisher said during the ACC spring meetings. “He’s not just a reliever, he’s a closer. This guy is a dominant player now, he’s a huge factor. So taking him off the team for three games until he got that done was a huge [deal], because baseball to him is no different than playing football.”

That would not have been the case, however, if Winston were not in the midst of baseball season.

“If he had been in football only, he would have been suspended for football-related activities until he took care of all those things,” Fisher said. “We did address other issues, yes. But to him, that’s just as devastating.”

FSU baseball coach Mike Martin suspended him until he completed his community service, which entailed doing janitorial work at the North West YMCA in Tallahassee.

YEAH I AM SURE HE DID THAT!

Now I gotta go find out who the Director of the NW YMCA in Tally is. LOL

The board of trustees at Duke University approved a $15 million project to renovate Wallace Wade Stadium over the weekend.

After the 2014 season, construction workers will remove the track and lower the playing surface. New field-level seating will be added.

As you can see, the appearance of Wallace Wade Stadium will largely improve.
Coming off a 10-win season, David Cutcliffe and athletic director Kevin White are raising the bar. In fact, Cutcliffe believes that it’s entirely possible that ESPN’s College GameDay will broadcast LIVE from outside Wallace Wade Stadium in the near future.

The Strive For 5 meaning the Strive for the 5th National Title for those that only know about Canes Football. Canes Baseball are 4 time National Champs 1982, 1985, 1999, and 2001. That's right the Baseball and Football both won the title in 2001. I would love for that to happen again.

NFL Draft: the record 36 early entries who didn't get picked‏

James Wilder Jr. entered the draft dreaming of NFL riches but wound up among the record 36 early entries who didn't get picked

Will next year's juniors learn?

86Cane

Ohio...Heat looks vulnerable?

Monty...they will never learn because they are clueless and have BAD advisors.

86Cane

At times last week, it was hard to get past the NFL Draft freak out of the moment.

Johnny Freefall dropped.

Michael Sam languished.

Texas flat out got skunked.

Those situations either were -- or will be -- rectified. (Assuming Texas gets another player drafted. The Longhorns didn't have a player selected for the first time since 1937.) Perhaps the most overlooked story of draft weekend, though, was record unemployment. That came after a record 98 underclassmen declared for the draft resulting in a record 36 such players going unselected.

That's a failure rate of almost 40 percent.

"They aren't ready," said Ray Anderson, Arizona State's AD. "They think they are."

Anderson has an up-close view, having arrived at ASU in January from the NFL where he was executive vice president of football operations.

"I think you're going to have a lot more guys disappointed than ever before. It's going to take a class or two for that to happen before [realization] kicks in."

Ohio_Cane

86, they ARE vulnerable when Wade plays awful. Too many bad plays, some resulting in TO's. Lebron does mask that vulnerability by being amazing, tho.

CaneRock

The refs were making some phantom ass calls tonight. But even though they tried to take it away, we #WONANYWAY!

Ohio_Cane

Word is that 2015 CB Rashad Fenton will commit to UM soon

Ohio_Cane

Fenton is a take, in case U were wondering. Legit kid. Not ranked high enough.

herbieibis

Lurker,
The Herb saw your snide little comment from the previous blog about McCray gaining a whopping 75lbs on his bench in one month. You said you gained 50 on yours in about 6 weeks, I can see that happening but not 75 lbs in one month, No way, at least not without some help. I lift as well and I made gains of 25 lbs in a month, in my ute.

Lurker

Herbie,

Didn't mean for it to be personal or to come at you that strongly, but nobody has any idea what's actually happening with that, so why assume the worst about one of our own kids and put that nonsense out there for public consumption

I'm telling you, if you dedicate yourself and become a workout warrior with the bars, you'd be amazed what can be accomplished in a few weeks. It's not unheard off, even without steroids. You could do it with religious lifting of free weights every day, appropriate legal supplements, high quality protein to bolster recovery and repair, excellent technique, a solid lifting plan, and good partners in the gym. You also have to be YOUNG.

It's been done.

So let's not assume that about one of our own.

CaneRock

I was more surprised that McCray was only benching 240 to begin with. At 216, if He was dedicated to a dedicated HS weight program, He should've at least been 1 rep maxing 300 last Summer.

30CINCO

That LBJ will be good one day. How about Pierce and his defensive request to attempt to guard LBJ? At least he held him under 50, lol.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | May 13, 2014 at 08:58 AM

I agree, but still, 240 is not a good max for a kid that size...IF max is what He was referring to. The only other thing I can surmise, is that maybe He had an injury, that prohibited Him from lifting, and maybe that injury minimized any gains that He was making in the weight room.

CaneRock

But then again, this is SF we're talking about. Being that SF doesn't have middle school football, most of these kids don't see a weight room till they get to HS.

I like what I see, but you got Bama, Georgia, OSU, FL, Whisky OK.......not that I would pick them, but Bama and OSU are gonna be at the top competing. Its all about winning big bowl games NCs. Those 2 will be near the top, thats what the kids want.....sadly they are not interested in our Mount Rushmore.

Hope we can pull Merrick. He's a UM fan, so there's that kiss of death. Lol

He should actually be a 2016 kid, but is graduating in 2015. Hasn't turned 17 yet, and won't until December.

Ariz:

**The QB recruiting scenario is developing quickly and I expect the Canes to lock in on a couple of targets in the near future. Torrance Gibson is not coming to Miami and Brandon Wimbush just committed to Penn State. Who is up next? One name in the mix is Dwyer QB Daniel Parr. Parr is a personal favorite of James Coley’s and he very well could wind up being the QB in this class. I know Canes fans might not think highly of Miami’s chances with Parr due to the program’s lack of success recruiting Dwyer over the years, but I think this situation is different. Parr is still slightly under-the-radar and Miami was his first big-time offer, which will be a huge recruiting point. If he continues to progress the way Miami thinks he will, then he will garner more offers but Miami will always have the point of emphasis that they were on him first. Last recruiting cycle, we saw what happens when James Coley makes a lightly recruited QB his priority and my hunch is that we will see something similar progress here with Parr. On the field, Parr put up great numbers last season with 42 TDs and 6 INTs and helped lead Dwyer to a 7A state title. We will learn a lot about him this season when he does not have his three big weapons in Johnnie Dixon, Clint Stephens, and Tavares Martin. Good athlete with some juice on his ball.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N_R_YnJxWU

**There are reports out there that suggest Carol City CB Rashad Fenton could be committing to Miami soon, but I have been told that he does not have a committabe offer at this point. Miami likes him, but would not take a commitment from him at this point. I am personally a big fan of Fenton, but Miami has prospects higher on their board at the moment

**When Quentez Johnson called Al Golden a few weeks ago to commit, Miami was stunned because they liked his upside, but had not necessarily been expecting him to commit without visiting. His decommitment was not a surprise to them because they accepted his pledge knowing it would be extremely difficult to hold on to. In my opinion, Johnson will end up at a lower-level SEC school such as Mississippi State or Kentucky.

**The first summer session begins at UM next Monday, and that means more incoming recruits will be officially beginning their college careers. Here is a list of prospects who are expected to move into their dorms over the weekend and start classes on the 19th:
Tyre Brady
Marques Gayot
Brad Kaaya
Kiy Hester
Malik Rosier
Demetrius Jackson
Chad Thomas
Courtel Jenkins
Nick Linder
Michael Wyche
Mike Smith

The second summer session begins on June 30th, where Terry McCray, David Njoku, and Darrell Langham are expected to enroll. Trayone Gray’s status is still up in the air. Any of these names are also subject to change depending on any clearinghouse issues that have not come to light.

**New Jersey WR Irvin Charles is an absolute priority for Miami right now. The coaches view him as Tyre Brady 2.0 with his size. Between Brady, Langham, Herndon, and Njoku it is obvious that they are trying to get as big as possible at the position. Berrios had to be SPECIAL to warrant an offer and he was.

**The full court press has been on Tim Irvin for some time now and I am told that his mother is really pushing for him to stay in Miami. The Canes have the upper hand at the moment.

Ariz on our DB recruiting since he says Fenton is not a take, although I tend to disagree...

"Tyrek Cole, Tim Irvin, Jaquan Johnson, Carlton Davis...Those are the ones that Miami continues to recruit heavily AND have legit interest"

CaneRock

VAC...off the top of my head, we beat Bama out for Trent Harris & Chad Thomas this year. We beat out a late LSU push for McCray. And as far as the diamonds in the rough, we beat EVERYBODY out for Owens & Young. Al & the staff did very good, but like I said, I wish we would've finished a lil' stronger.

Without HS, there would be no Mount Rushmore, players, championships or legacy. I rarely put all my eggs in one basket, but HS is the cradle of civilization re UM football. Had he not come we are not blogging about football.

CR a strong finish, AG focused on the UM job instead of Pervert State U, an ass whooping to The Ville would have made things a lot stronger; agreed my man.

Go Canes

Ray Lewis had an amazing NFL career but I don't think he's one of the top 4 UM players ever.

Guys like Irvin, Brown, Taylor and Reed had better overall careers here in my opinion.

VA Cane

Well, its all opinion and thats only fair; you start naming players from here that made that difference and you would have The Great Wall of China Rushmore instead of The 4. Hell, how about Onion, Clappy, Spencer Whipple and Lance Leggett? LOL!!!

I was the one that put HS out there and broke the rules!!!!!!!

I stand on it; no need for a Rushmore of players, without HS there is nothing to talk about. I could be wrong, but you tell me who was going to come in here on a whim a wing and a prayer like he did for the U and do what he did? I cannot name anybody from that era in football who would have taken on such a ludicrous task. Build a nice statue of HS for sure; that would say it all.

VA Cane

How about Nevin, Paul Dee, Uncle Luke and Tad Foote.....good Rushmore of Shame!!!!!!!!

When they were recruits: 2014′s first-round draft picks

Of the 32 players drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, four were rated as five-star recruits out of high school — just one more than the total of players rated as two-star players taken among the first 32 picks Thursday night.

Being a freakishly good athlete out of high school often translates into success in college — like for Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2011 and the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft — but it hardly guarantees a player being a first-round draft pick. A look back at where this year’s first-rounders stood coming out of high school certainly proves that point:

1. Jadeveon Clowney: 5 stars, No. 1 overall player (2011)

2. Greg Robinson: 4 stars, No. 90 overall player (2011)

3. Blake Bortles: 3 stars, No. 44 quarterback (2010)

4. Sammy Watkins: 5 stars, No. 15 overall player (2011)

5. Khalil Mack: 2 stars, no national, positional or state ranking (2009)

6. Jake Matthews: 4 stars, No. 48 overall player (2010)

7. Mike Evans: 3 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2011)

8. Justin Gilbert: 4 stars, No. 26 cornerback (2010)

9. Anthony Barr: 4 stars, No. 50 overall player (2010)

10. Eric Ebron: 3 stars, No. 21 tight end (2011)

11. Taylor Lewan: 4 stars, No. 194 overall player (2009)

12. Odell Beckham Jr.: 4 stars, No. 43 overall player (2011)

13. Aaron Donald: 3 stars, No. 37 defensive tackle (2010)

14. Kyle Fuller: 3 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2010)

15. Ryan Shazier: 4 stars, No. 14 outside linebacker (2011)

16. Zack Martin: 4 stars, No. 22 offensive tackle (2009)

17. C.J. Mosley: 4 stars, No. 56 overall player (2010)

18. Calvin Pryor: 3 stars, No. 31 safety (2011)

19. Ja’Wuan James: 4 stars, No. 55 overall player (2010)

20. Brandin Cooks: 4 stars, No. 240 overall player (2011)

21. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix: 5 stars, No. 7 overall player (2011)

22. Johnny Manziel: 3 stars, No. 14 dual-threat quarterback (2011)

23. Dee Ford: 3 stars, No. 62 outside linebacker (2009)

24. Darqueze Dennard: 2 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2010)

25. Jason Verrett: 3 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2011)

26. Marcus Smith: 3 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2010)

27. Deone Bucannon: 3 stars, No. 45 safety (2010)

28. Kelvin Benjamin: 4 stars, No. 60 overall player (2011)

29. Dominique Easley: 5 stars, No. 7 overall player (2010)

30. Jimmie Ward: 2 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2010)

31. Bradley Roby: 3 stars, no national, positional or state rankings (2010)

32. Teddy Bridgewater: 4 stars, No. 113 overall player (2011)

Five-star players: 4 (Jadeveon Clowney, Sammie Watkins, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Dominique Easley)

Four-star players: 13 (Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, Justin Gilbert, Anthony Barr, Taylor Lewan, Odell Beckham Jr., Ryan Shazier, Zack Martin, C.J. Mosley, Ja’Wuan James, Brandin Cooks, Kelvin Benjamin, Teddy Bridgewater)

Three-star players: 12 (Blake Bortles, Mike Evans, Eric Ebron, Aaron Donald, Kyle Fuller, Calvin Pryor, Johnny Manziel, Dee Ford, Jason Verrett, Marcus Smith, Deone Bucannon, Bradley Roby)

Two-star players: 3 (Khalil Mack, Darqueze Dennard, Jimmie Ward)

Barry:

### UM likes the new MLS stadium site proposed by Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Gimenez ---- on a boat slip between Museum Park and AmericanAirlines Arena --- and it “appears to be big enough” for a 40,000-seat stadium if David Beckham decides to build one that large to accommodate UM football (which is still undecided), deputy mayor Chip Iglesias tells us.

The stadium would “need to go into Bicentennial Park somewhat” even if it’s a 25,000-seat stadium, Iglesias said.

UM, still awaiting word from Beckham’s group on the viability, believes the parking situation would be better there than the PortMiami site.

The odds still favor UM remaining at Sun Life, because of multiple factors --- including the high cost to Beckham of building a stadium with 40,000 seats, plus the fact UM has 18 years left on its Sun Life lease and might not be able to get out of it. But UM said it won’t make a decision until it gets clarity from Beckham’s group.

Posted by: UMike | May 12, 2014 at 12:13 PM

There again you have no clue....They will or should call leaving early only if the runner @ 3rd advances to the next available base. There is nothing to call if she remains @ 3rd because she never advanced.

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | May 12, 2014 at 03:51 PM

Thirsty... I respect what you do... and normally I am not an ass to the umps.. I understand things can be missed. But this guy was 100% in the wrong. He argured the score with us for no reason at all, we were talking among ourselves. Both sides books had it right, he just had an attitude Ive never seen from an ump like he wanted to engage us in a fight.


Second, maybe the rules are different in our league but the girl cannot leave the base until the ball is released from the picture, it doesnt matter if she advances or not. It is on any base.

Again.. Im normally cool with the umps, of course we have to argue some calls, but Im never disrespectful, but this guy deserved it. If you were there you would agree. Zero professionalism, just a little punk.

### The Dolphins tried to sign UM’s Stephen Morris after the draft, but Jacksonville made a better offer and Morris liked the idea of working with Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, his former coordinator at UM.

UM, once dubbed Quarterback U, has now gone 11 years since having a quarterback drafted (Ken Dorsey, seventh round, 2003) and 22 years since it had a quarterback selected before the last round (Craig Erickson, fourth round, in 1992).

I personally think it's good to have goals and aspirations. If he doesn't believe in himself, who will? If that motivates him, more power to him.

umm... yea okaaaay!! lol... Im all good with having goals.. but that is just bs lol.. That is for players that have shown they deserve to be drafted high, then you can have a chip on your shoulder for being passed over. This kid needs to get a clue smh lol

UMike

Maybe some kids just think they are better than they really are

What do you expect him to do, say to himself, "I suck, why bother?" and give up.

Have you ever been around top athletes before? If you don't have a can do attitude, you would never see the field.

smh

When was he a top athlete? haha I don't expect him to think he sucks, but at least be realistic. Like he was some all-world safety that teams passed over smfh

Says he's solid but keeping his options open cuz he hasn't signed a paper yet. Other then that talks about some other guys on his team. Says it would be good to play with Irvin and Johnson. Also a hardworker his coach and him both state that he is a two a day guy on the weight room. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Hope we can hold on to this kid.

2016 DE Burns a Rising Prospect

2016 defensive end Brian Burns didn’t get much of an opportunity to showcase his talents while at University School (Fla.) last year. Burns has now transferred to American Heritage (Fla.) and is ready to show South Florida his skills.

“I was at University school and I transferred over to Heritage. I had a good season at U-school, but it wasn’t how I wanted it to be. I don’t expect to ball out, but I want to pass my goals or reach my goals that I didn’t do last year.”

The transition from Davie to Plantation was an easy one and he already feels fit within the Patriots defense.

“It’s very similar because at U-school we had coach (Roger) Harriot and he was a great coach and coach (Mike) Rumph is also a great coach and he’s let me showcase my talents to be able to get a starting position at Heritage and I appreciate that because I didn’t know how things were gonna work out when I got there. The team is growing extremely fast; the spring has been amazing and both teams are doing well.”

The 6’5 215 pound rush end prospect has began to garner interest from schools around the country and holds offers from FIU, FAU, Clemson and Wisconsin. He admits he’s enjoying the recruiting process and didn’t really expect this explosion of interest from schools.

“It’s been good, I mean I really didn’t have any colleges before now I just kinda blew up. It was a surprise really because I wasn’t expecting anything or those offers, I’m just blessed that it happened this way.”

While those offers are satisfying to have for Burns, he still has a handful of other schools showing interest as well as schools he would like to hear from.

“I really want to hear from Miami, that’s a big school to hear from. Oregon came by today and I want to hear from them again, I like LSU. I love FSU, I want to hear from them a lot, I only talked to them one time. I want to hear from Auburn, my brother went there and Florida.”

The hometown Hurricanes have made an impression on the rising junior and he’s intrigued by their program.

“Well I’m from Florida so I’m already used to the weather and one of the D-ends that I look up to, I really don’t know him, but Chad Thomas. I look up to him a lot, because he reminds me of myself. There’s a couple dudes I know that go to Miami and they tell me it’s a great place and they have a huge tradition of football period.

Burns recently got a chance to speak with the coaches from Miami and he expects more communication to come.

“They came to one of my spring practices; we talked a little bit, we weren’t really talking about anything as far as an offer. He just came an knew what my name was and he told me I did good in practice.”

The national champion Florida State Seminoles are another school that has piqued the interest of the American Heritage product and finds their defense line fascinating.

“I love Florida State, they just won a championship and they’re doing big things right now. Another D-linemen I like, Timmy Jernigan, big dude. He’s a beast and I know their D-line was phenomenal, so I know they probably have a great program over there.”

Burns is planning to see a handful of schools this summer including trips to Clemson, FIU, and FAU.

“I’m going to ‘The U camp’ I’m gonna try and hit up the FAU and FIU camps and the Clemson coach wanted me to come up this summer and see Clemson, because one of my former players Richard Yeargin goes there and he wants me to see it.”
