Sheldon McClellan scored 19 points as Miami routed Howard, 84-49, in the teams' season opener Friday night.

The Hurricanes started the game on a 17-1 run during the first 7:53 and never trailed. Manu Lecomte scored six points in Miami's early surge and James Palmer's 3-pointer with 12:27 remaining ended the spurt.

McClellan, a Texas transfer playing in his first game for the Hurricanes, shot 8-of-12 from the field. Angel Rodriguez, a Kansas State transfer, also had a successful debut for Miami with 16 points.

The Bison missed their first 14 shots. James Daniels' steal and driving layup 8:13 into the game ended the drought.

Rodriguez hit a 3-pointer with 8:20 left in the half for Miami's first 20-point lead at 28-8. The Hurricanes' largest lead of the half was 39-13 on Deandre Burnett's two free throws with 2:49 remaining.

Rodriguez's two free throws with 10 seconds left gave Miami a 45-21 lead at halftime.

Soup... Where are you fine folks tailgating tomorrow?

86Cane

I will not be there but UMike will be there in my place with my Tix and shared parking pass with KYCane at E5 which is a green lot on the SE side of the Stadium. They arrive early!

They will be actually between E5 and E4 but look for the familiar faces. I'll post photos tomorrow. U may see a Canespace shirt, but if not just ask around for where the "Canespace" tailgate is at.

Canezilla is at E3 but he and his friends are wierd and squirrely so watch out. There is a really BIG guy who hangs out with them, but punch him once in the jaw and he goes down. NBD.

Was looking forward to meeting u!! I guess ill just punch big guys till I find the right one

Just make sure that they are wearing maroon!!

Go 'canes!!

86Cane

EPI...just look around E5 and find the guys U have seen in the photos from the tailgate. If U cant find them look for the BIGGEST guy walking around by E3 and ask him about Canespace. No seriously he knows where we are at. He is Canezilla's friend and will walk U over.

Why aren't u going to be there? This is FSU!!!!

86Cane

EPI...Couple of reasons:

1. I promised UMike my tix WAY back when for this special event. He earned them.

2. Next year I hope to take OhioCane to the FSU game in Tally with Terrance, OldSkool and NativeCane.

3. Ohio and UMike have done more for this blog than anyone else and they should be rewarded.

4. I know this is gonna sound bad but I am getting old and really I can't take the sold out games anymore. I like it when there is no traffic, I can park with ease, walk in the stadium, it is half full and I can sit where I want to in the shade and have 5-7 seats to myself.

5. Like I said, I know it sounds bad. But since 1973 I have been going to games and since 1981 I have had season tickets. I was at the OB before being at the OB was cool. I have been to so many great games, in all of the stadiums home and away, against great opponents, with great coaches and we kicked their butts (after 1982).

6. It is a young man's game now and the stress and hassle of a sold out game in Miami does not interest me. I'll go to Tally next year just for kicks and giggles and to see the Canes beat the Noles, AGAIN!

SJMPARMAN

I suspect certain business commitments must be honored and for all he does for us with this site, I don't know, maybe just me, but we should respect it. Nobody wants us to win this game more than Soup, and I mean no one, for he lives, breathes, and carries the joy, drama, thrills and burden of running this site.

I hear ya re: getting old. The crowds can be a pain.

The flip side is getting old is better than the alternative.

SJM... I wasn't casting aspersions.. Was just curious why he wasn't going. Whether somebody goes to every game or not doesn't make em more or less of a fan.

A little spin on words:

"Joaquin said dominate. Let's do it!"

I love how you have a totally open-and-shut reason not to go, but you still have to establish your Cranky Old Fan street cred.

Me, I avoid standing in lines under the sun at all costs. I WISH I avoided the plague like I avoid standing in lines under the sun. Also, not to denigrate drunken idiots -- I've been known to wear that label from time to time -- but wow, there are going to be an unusually large number of drunken idiots out and about at that game.

Hmm. That didn't take as long to write as I was hoping. I've still got, what? Eleven freaking HOURS to kill?! Sonova...

Man, I don't even have a particularly strong feeling UM's going to win, but still, UM/FSU is always like Christmas for me. (It's actually my birthday tomorrow, so the only present I want is hopefully waiting for me in South Florida.)

LETSSSSS GOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

CANES!!!!!!

Go Canes

I still love the huge crowds, jammed parking lots, drunk obnoxious fans, loud stadiums, every seat full and a beautiful, hot sunny day (except for noon starts in Sepember).

Only thing I can't stand is some roided out idiot UM "fan" yelling at some 70 year old and his wife who are there rooting for their team. That becomes a problem every time.

Minus the blazing sun, sure to see all of that tonight!

Can't wait!!

It was the sound of the phone at 4:00am that awoke Jimbo Fischer. He tried to ignore it, pulling his Seminole snuggie closer, but the buzzing persisted. A poor night's sleep was the final brick in a week punctuated by a growing sense of dread. Everything was coming down to this weekend.

He finally sat up and answered the phone. He had no idea of who it could be - his players and coaching staff were under strict curfew instructions. The ID only read YAMMA YAMMA.

"This is Coach", he said wearily.

There was silence on the other end for a moment. Then stifled laughter.

"This is your wake up call. Seminoles...come out and pllllaaayyyyy....."

More laughter, and the phone went dead. The hotel room seemed to get smaller, and suddenly it seemed...it was 1988 again.

@mattyports: Kirk Herbstreit says James Coley told him the Virginia Tech game is where Brad Kaaya won over all his teammates.

AfriCane

this is from caneswarning.com. an interview with brian blades :

CW: As a former Hurricane who won a National Championship, do you think Al Golden and this coaching staff have the program moving in the right direction to get back to the mountaintop?

BB: I’m still an Al Golden guy, I’m just not a big fan of D’Onofrio right now. The thing is the last three or four weeks, he’s called a much more aggressive ballgame and that’s what Hurricanes fans are used to. If he keeps calling an aggressive style of play, the fans will start warming up to him and put the onus and the blame squarely where it belongs: on the players. But if you’re going to call a soft-hearted game, you’re going to get all the blame that fans have.


I don't know that I agree with brian. D'no has been money the last 4 games. just as much as the players have been developing, the coaches have been developing. remember, this is these coaches first taste of 'big boy football.' as much as its a beautiful thing to watch players develop, it is also as such to watch coaches develop. I think we should enjoy the ride.

AfriCane

....but if he strays again, us Haters will be here to steer him back on the right path, like we've already done this year. yes, we are the reason for the turn around. if you don't agree, go kick rocks...

Go Canes

We are doomed.

Sarasota 'cane

Corso picks the 'canes in an upset!

I also agree with Blades. UM must continue to play aggressive on defense and get to Winston if they want to win today.

Go 'canes!

Go Canes

34-31 Canes is my prediction.

We won't shut down Winston, no one has.

But we will score a lot tonight.

Don't run from the pain run thru it like the CANES do the smoke, because it represents going through life not being able to see and having the confidence and faith in yourself and those around you that even though you can't see, you run full steam ahead because victory awaits U and them on the otherside of that smoke!

USAFCane

IMO Canes are better unranked, 6-3 than their #7 ranking at 7-0 last year. I thought we'd get beat bad last year. This year I don't. Throw in our home form and FSU's apparent regression and you should have a game that is very close, a game the Canes can win.

My fear is that a motivated FSU with something to prove shows up on prime time. They have a star at QB and dare I say swagger. Despite the Canes improvement, I'm still not convinced the staff can win the big game and FSU's staff is simply superior.

Hope I'm wrong but I think FSU wins going away.

You're absolutely right. My bad. Ever since the loss to GT, they have been developing their game plans by first checking what random, anonymous but highly qualified posters are saying on blogs and on Twitter, and setting their strategy according to these experienced and well spoken posters (especially the pure genius you see on Twitter).

Or maybe the lack of results finally made them realize they had to change things up.

No. You're right. It was banner flyers and blog coaches.

you obviously like the sound of your own voice. the criticisms hauled at this team doesn't dictate that they try a particular different strategy. the criticism pressured them into working harder and trying different things than they've been trying. this is the same stubborn coaching staff that wouldn't change their ways in 4 years and they are suddenly seen the light? u can believe they don't read the clippings all you want. but good luck with that!!!

I'm in too good a mood to even address the ridiculous notion any outside influence has been the reason this team is rising.

It's such an insult to the countless hours our players and coaches have put in an order to reach this point it doesn't even warrant a response.

Banner over Joe Robbie Stadium:

Stop Rape & Domestic Abuse...Beat FSU!!!

VA Cane

In cool 40 degree weather, once again The Peoples Champion, The working class Heroes of VA have reached another milestone:birth in the Super Bowl!!!!

The run game will never let you down if you stick with it; your OL and QB working as a unit is grace. We rushed for over 230 yards on our way to our 6th SB appearance in the last 8 years. We beat a upset minded, fundamentally strong team coached by a young man who played HS ball with a lot of my older players 12-13 years ago....damn old coach is getting old!!!
They were very good, tough, and so sound....we just beat them at the point of attack...old style run with TE mixed in screens and draws.....and a physically intimidating D Marky Dno wished he had. It was close in the beginning, but talent that plays football Fundamentally First won out and pulled away to a 28-7 win.

Was not easy but we powered the ball and kept it out of their hands with the run....and a 7-0 halftime lead pulled away in the middle of the third 21-0 with them scoring late in the 4th on pride....been there before.

Their kids were really good, we were just better up front. My QB is flawless as a leader and general. I love these kids so much; they carried me off old style and I really did not want that; they are the focal point, I just guide.

We go for 6 of the last 8 SB next Saturday. In 8 years we are a cool 90-3. We run it hard and pass well, and take your head off on D. Turning point today: QB went to pitch on an option out of the spread.....and met my free safety up close and real personal on a blind blitz he told me he "just read". It was like an explosion and their QB will wake up .....tomorrow.

I told my guys that I step away next Sat; the time has come for a young man like my opposing coach to guide the program. I have won a lot of football games in the last 8; this could be #16 SB. I am proud of what I have done over 36 years....the 20 years we were not champs bothers me the most!

While winning matters, I can say I have never run a factory. I have pushed kids to brighter futures and positive well lived lives. I have never cursed a player, never cheated, never had an illegal player, and never been penalized or thrown out of a game. We have won the right way, and when we lost we owned it as one; TEAM first. My guys are champions in Life, Family, School....then Football. We win together. I will tell you that writing this is full of tears; I love these kids so much, and the last 8 years have been the ride of a lifetime. Just a humble guy from the mountains of SW VA who played despite being told too small...who beat many a bigger man at a big mans game by being smarter, tougher meaner....and better prepared fundamentally. I have taught my kids the same thing; you are bigger than life and you can win if you want to do so. do not quit, press on and keep your head up; The Almighty will guide you through the waves!

Time for The Baby Canes to step up....they can do it.
Go Canes we love you and are behind you!
