LeBron & Love were 3rd & 4th in NBA in total points last season. No team has ever acquired 2 players who ranked in top 5 in previous season.

UMike

Ohio cant barely hold back his excitement

Ohio_Cane

I hold back nothing. Happy for Lebron to have an elite team again. Still hope the Heat beat them. Don't think they will.

SOUP

FROM ORLANDO SENTINEL:

With two more running back additions to Miami's 2015 recruiting class last month, it appeared things could be getting crowded for Winter Garden West Orange's Dexter Williams.

He committed to The U in April even though it appeared he might be a heavy lean toward Florida given huge family support for the Gators. But with the Hurricanes' additions of Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas RB Jordan Scarlett and the class change for former 2016 commit RB Mark Walton of Miami Booker T. Washington, putting him in the 2015 class, as well, it looked like Williams might be the odd man out.

Williams said Wednesday, however, that a recent rash of decommitments from Florida has taken the Gators off his list of possible schools and he said he's 90 percent committed to Miami, with Southern Cal, South Carolina and Louisville still in the remote possibilities.

UMike

Im VERY surprised about him eliminating Florida... great sign for us

Soup, lots to crow about!!

86,

My phone doesn't like the pop up ad on wide open spaces. It keeps freezing me up.

That huge add is freezing up my work computer too...

It froze up my home computer too. I will tell them about that.

Gray skies opened up for the second consecutive day and once again postponed the start of day 2 of the University of Miami's Fall training camp, this time for over an hour. As you can imagine, the players grew restless as they waited for the gray clouds to clear so they could take the field and get in some quality work on Greentree Field

Do they not have access to an in-doors facility? if not, this should be priority one.

The Jacksonville Jaguars play their first preseason game on Friday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but Gus Bradley wants the Jags focusing on “Rules ball.”

In preparation for the Bucs, Bradley and staff came up with some general game-planning by looking at Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford’s time at Cal, but in the preseason, it’s about your own team and the individual players.

“You just come up with some general ideas, maybe watch what Coach Tedford did at Cal and his base philosophy,” Bradley said of the game plan. “But we go into it really trying to teach our guys we want to play hard, play fast, play together, run and hit at the Bank (EverBank Field). Let’s just run and hit and, really, follow our rules. We call it ‘Rules ball.’ Go out there, play your rules. There are maybe going to be some things you weren’t prepared for, but just trust your preparation, as far as all the learning you’ve had, and go from there.”

Posted by: raizecane | August 07, 2014 at 12:38 PM

They do. I think they still have the old basketball practice facility at The Hecht Center and then they can go over to the new basketball practice facility at the BankUnited Facility. But neither are turfed, they are wood floors.

Canesteeler

I am hoping this offense is unstoppable. We need a QB to manage the game and protect the ball.

Terrance Sullivan

Canesteeler Yes Sir

I'm hoping for a much better defense......

If MLB was smart, they would let sleeping dogs lye and move on...

Major League Baseball officials have contacted the DEA and U.S. Attorney's office in Southern Florida in an effort to unmask the names of any players who might have violated the league's drug policy, sources told ESPN's "Outside the Lines."

SportsCenter ‏@SportsCenter 1m

THIS JUST IN: NCAA approves reforms that will give Power Five conferences ability to write their own rules.


ACC better one-up the SEC when it comes to sneaky rules lol

UMike

Ohio... yea that is going to create a lot of issues in college football.

UMike

"The NCAA Division I board of directors on Thursday voted to allow the 65 schools in the top five conferences to write many of their own rules. The autonomy measures -- which the power conferences had all but demanded -- will permit those leagues to decide on things such as cost-of-attendance stipends and insurance benefits for players, staff sizes, recruiting rules and mandatory hours spent on individual sports.'

^^^ the game is about to change in a big way

86Cane

GOODBYE COLLEGE FOOTBALL.

LMBO!!!! And apparently Corey King will be a beast this year!!

Mountain Cane

College football rules were changed on the targeting call. Now the review can overturn the penalty and reinstate the player or keep the penalty and the expulsion.

Can no longer keep penalty and allow player back. May result in more expulsions. Need to be careful back there.

WWIM

Regular season, clear #1.

Playoffs: I like the Heats chances should we meet them

Posted by: 30CINCO | August 07, 2014 at 10:13 AM

Dreeeeeeeaaam, dream, dream, dream!!

The heat wouldn't be $h*t without Lebron these last 4yrs and now he'll be playing against those washed up has beens with a better team???? Our defense has a better chance of finishing ranked #1 in the nation. Lol

CaneRock

Well the rules need to change. Makes no damn sense that a Nick Saban, makes more money than what 85 schollies at Bama' are worth COMBINED!

UMike

The Heat will still be a good team, especially if Wade adapts his game, but IDK if we could take the Cavs in a series. IF we did it would be because we out-coached them. Spo is a dam good coach and the Cavs will have an NBA rookie coach. The Heat will be FAR from washed up imo

CaneRock

WWIN...we got that Lebron stopper though...DENG! And excluding Lebron, the only players the Cavs have with playoff & Championship experience, ain't no spring chickens themselves (Allen & Miller).

UMike

CR.. hey got Jones and Miller.. but Allen will be next

Our defense has a better chance of finishing ranked #1 in the nation. Lol

86Cane

The conferences will fall all over themselves to lower admissions criteria, pay the players the most money, build luxury housing for players, buy an insurance policy for everyone, etc.

Question: Will the NCAA still enforce their graduation rate and other academic standards for players to remain eligible?

Posted by: Willie Will in Nashville | August 07, 2014 at 03:01 PM

Yes but there is always a little possibility that a little "accident" could be arranged that could change this VERY quickly. U should tread lightly my friend, very lightly. I would hate to have to throw U under da bus only to see U get run over and then back up and do it again just to be sure?

IJS

CaneRock

I don't see the autonomy measures as the end of CFB as we know it. With the revenue sharing & TV money the schools in the Power 5 conferences get, those schools can afford to cover the gaps with those cost-of-attendance stipends. Remember, these kids on full rides don't get money in the Summer...even Feliciano said that He could use an extra $2500.00 in the Summer to cover His expenses.

NavyCane4Life

I could have used $2500 during the summers of my college years too!

CaneRock

And as far as admission standards go, I don't see them lowering that either. Heck, I think every school has higher standards than the NCAA's.

CaneRock

But WWIN, I kinda agree with you though...if Pat would've had a better draft in 08, we would've been in better shape today. We took Beasley over Westbrook & Love in the 1st Round...and we took Chalmers over DeAndre Jordan in the 2nd Rd. Imagine if we had Love, Miami would've had Cleveland by the jewels right now.

The autonomy has no effect on eligibility rules. http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/writer/jon-solomon/24651709/ncaa-adopts-new-division-i-model-giving-power-5-autonomy
Changing eligibility rules will be very difficult, there isn't much will out there to lower the standards. The real issue is making sure the sham courses some of these players take are investigated. And I have no idea what they're going to do with that.

From CIS:

Ice Harris stuff

-Locally, he's taking over Barrow's schools: Homestead, Killian, Westminster Christian School, South Dade, Booker T. Washington, and Edison among others

-Barrow also had Jacksonville and Atlanta but Golden said Harris' north FL and out of state assignments are TBD

-Harris will likely take over the recruitments of: Jaquan Johnson, Tim Irvin, Devonaire Clarington, and Mark Walton

-Harris will likely assist in the recruitments of: Jordan Scarlett, Dexter Williams, and Jordan Cronkrite

The Dude

Expansion of the Big 5 seems inevitable. ACC should try to grab Cincinnati or UConn or both.

The Dude

Big 10 should add SMU and if they can increase their foothold in more populated areas. UCF, USF would be nice targets.

The Dude

Big *12* my bad.

Man you tryna make Soup get mad at me! Lol.They still had a better team than the Cavs! The heat was never great with Lebron anyways. Like I've said, the nba wanted Lebron to win some ships just like they want what's going on with him now to happen! First ship he won they were not even picked to win it against the Thunder, second ship was luck and took a miracle comeback that all heat fans left the arena cuz they knew it was ova!

Va Cane


The National Guard said in a statement posted on its web site it spent $32 million on its NASCAR sponsorship and $12 million on its IndyCar sponsorship this year, and noted that ''sports sponsorships have played an important role in helping the guard build strong brand awareness.''

Military funding has come under increased scrutiny in Congress as Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo, has called the sponsorship ''wasting a bunch of money on a very expensive sports sponsorship.''


I loved #3, and love Jr, but she is so right; the NG/military budget/govt has no business spending a dime on racing.....$44 mil last year? how much over time? All that $ could go to our vets needing medical attention and shelter...I 'm just saying.....


I got on the bus last night but guess there was no room for VA Country Azz Cane. I'll just stick to my 12-0 dream for my guys this year and for us to win 6 of last 8 SBs crusing along in that Raider color F-150 looking to Tatumize all in my path...Apocalypse Now football is probably more my style anyway!!!! LOL!!!

^^^^^^^^^
Not to mention bringing in Mike Miller he didn't play all season and comes in shooting unconsciously never missing. Then a washed up Shane Battier had his worst shooting percentage of his career but comes in the finals and shoots lights out can't miss!
