Don't say it. It is going to be Valentine's Day and all. Don't say it. Would NOT be prudent.

CaneSince1982,

Hats off to you sir. Fine work, much appreciated. 86, we need play by play on baseball. I agree its bad for football, what we need to do is a drive summary. I'm loving that it's baseball season because my Padres signed a lot of great players. I'm going to try to go to a game in SD this year. Padres coming for the NL west.

Go Canes

### Looks like new UM receivers coach Kevin Beard will be a real asset in recruiting. Beard said he will focus a lot of his efforts in Broward County, where the Canes need the help. UM had more players from New Jersey (two) than Broward (one) in this year's recruiting class.

St. Thomas Aquinas' Sam Bruce, a UM oral commitment who's rated the No. 4 receiver in the 2016 class, told 247sports.com that he was very pleased UM hired Beard: "I loved it. I'm very excited not only for me as an incoming player but also for him. He's been a great mentor ever since my eighth grade year [at University School].

"Ever since I met him he's been nothing but real to me. Coach Beard is a phenomenal coach and person. I'm just going to wait until I take a couple of visits and see a couple of schools and hopefully after the season I'll be able to make my decision."

Bruce said he ranks UM first, UF second and Oregon third.

If Beard saves Bruce, he earned his paycheck. Then again, it's kind of on him for losing Scarlett. That's his boy.

Golden's biggest obstacle to recruiting this 2015 cycle was UM's 6-7 record in his 4th season. Golden's biggest asset during the 2016 cycle will be the number of NFL draft picks in 2015 and UM's record of 9 or more wins. A winning season will minimize the effects of negative recruiting and decommitments. I like Golden, but I don't think he will survive another mediocre season. Golden needs to win and his best players must play at a high level. With a new president in place before the end of the football season, This year is a make it or break it season for Al Golden.

Go Canes

To quote the owner "There it is, right there." /\/\/\/\/\

A winning season will minimize the effects of negative recruiting and decommitments.

Besides winning, it is alos important how those wins and losses came about. No more blowouts in front of a national TV audiance and embarrassing home losses to bad teams when plenty of recruits are in the stadium is vital to keep the 2016 class together.

Explains It All.....
Golden is Scared as Hell to Fire No'D
Thnx CaneRock
Golden is one SoftBatch Cookie I tell ya..
Kids play scared bcuz coach is scared..

It won't be any negative recruiting if we win! No negative fans either!

Go Canes

New numbers for some of the players:

@mattyports: If I'm Michael Badgley, I'm telling Brad Kaaya that all sales of No. 15 jerseys are really for me. http://t.co/cmjOP8gzX8

His Royal Dudeness

Finally going to start watching The Pacific today. Going to see how it stacks up to my grandfathers stories.

His Royal Dudeness

Is Rutgers any good at baseball?

His Royal Dudeness

Looks like Suarez had a rough night, 5 innings pitched and 8 hits given up. He needs to pitch better for Miami's season and his draft status.

His Royal Dudeness

With my Padres looking like a competitor, I'm going all in on baseball. Miami made football suck, so let's go baseball.

His Royal Dudeness

If my numbers are right, Suarez has a 3.60 ERA and a WHIP of 2. Ouch. Only 3 strikeouts also. Good win, but Miami needs more from its Ace.

Cane Since 1982

Dude,

After listening to post game interviews and reading the Herald. Suarez says he couldn't locate anything and that his fast ball was moving but it was coming back over the plate instead of staying on the corners. Pretty much said that he didn't have his stuff and just battled all night. Coach Morris said he thinks it was pretty much Suarez over trying and trying to be perfect.

The good news is our bullpen was lights out at Jim Morris promised. We had a lot of base runners but much like last year we struggled to get hits with runners in scoring position. Im not reading much into that as it was the first game and was extremely cold for Miami natives. If that trend continues through out the next 3 games of this series it will be a concern heading into playing UF next weekend.

Canes bats did wakeup once we got to Rutgers bullpen so it also could be that Rutgers starting pitcher was just hot last night. He did have 9 strikeouts in 6 innings.

D'Onofrio's a made man LMAO!

Posted by: Cane Since 1982 | February 14, 2015 at 01:09 PM

Great points. Hopefully Suarez can get his stuff under control the rest of the season. He needs to anchor the rotation and shut down the lineups come playoffs. I wish every pro sport made players go to college. The sports would be saturated with talent.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ and hopefully the strikeouts go away from Miami's lineup. No reason to panic of course.

Terrance Sullivan

We got to clean up our base running in games that can and will come back to bite our Canes!

His Royal Dudeness

First game, no need to panic, but I'd rather look sharp and prepared for game 1.

Cane Since 1982

T-Sully,

Only base running errors I saw were from the true freshman Carl Chester. Supposedly the fastest guy on the team. Hell get it down.

Cane Since 1982

Ok who in the hell gave a female with a british accent that sounds like she has no clue out about baseball a microphone to call the game.

His Royal Dudeness

Go Canes, BigWindy

Do you get the feeling that Al is an obsessive winner?

I don't, to me he's Larry Coker with more focus on strength and conditioning.

Next up rutgers tonight at Mark Light Field at 7pm

Posted by: Cane Since 1982 | February 14, 2015 at 04:49 PM

I LOVE THIS GUY!!!

JCane

Zach Collins, out one, bottom of the 8th.
Heyward up (Jason's little brother), 6 runs on 12 hits and 1 error, and Rugers now with 3 runs, Canes up 6-3, trying to pad the lead a bit before the Rutgers' 9th.

JCane

Hayward still up, lots of foul balls, D. Thompson on deck. Hayward is 6'3", 200 lbs, walked earlier in the game as a pinch hitter, now with a full count. Laces it into left, runner at first with Thompson up, 2-3 on the night so far with a scored run and a stolen base.

JCane

Thompson knocks it into left field, runners on 1st and 2nd, now Justin Smith up (in for Barr) with 1 out. Iskenderian is on deck.

JCane

Thompson with a quick 3-0 count. Now foul, 3-1 count. Ball 4, based loaded and Iskenderian coming to the plate, Rutgers looking to make a pitching change.

JCane

The U bullpen had a lapse in the top of the 8th to make it a game again. Hammond coming in to pitch for Rutgers again, having pitched a bit last night.

FWIW, Heyward's big bro is even bigger, playing OF for the Cards and standing at 6'5", over 240 lbs. Some good genes going there. Good prospect.

Iskederian flies out, Heyward and Thompson both tag, getting Iskederian the RBI and putting runners on the corners, Canes now up 7-3 with two down.

JCane

Michelangeli laces it up the left field line, two runners in with a double, 9-3, Canes! The 3 given up in the top of the inning have been replaced.

JCane

BTW, Justin Smith was in for Eusebio, not Barr, whom I said by mistake earlier. Barr is at bat now, with runner on 2nd. Barr is hitting .455 so far, although obviously it's only game 3.

JCane

Barr out of Royal Palm Beach, sat out last year, left handed hitter, now with a full count. K, inning over, heading to the top of the 9th and hopefully ready to close it out.

JCane

Cooper Hammonds on the mound again, after having worked 2/3 of an inning last night.

First batter out, Barr to Michalangeli.

Second batter out, the same way.

One more to go: Pitcher is working fast, quick 1-2 count. Ball 2 on the outside corner. Swung on, missed, CANES WIN, with Enrique Sosa dominating in his first career start with 10 Ks!

Canes open up the season 3-0, great start!

Game 4 tomorrow, going for the sweep, starting at 1pm in Coral Gables.

Also, Canes play tomorrow night at 6:30 at BC in hoops. 'Night all.

His Royal Dudeness

3-0. That's how it's done.

Terrance Sullivan

Boom 3-0. Great job Canes! Let's go for the series sweep tomorrow.
