UMike 2 grand slams in one week , whats your batting average now, can you keep batting 1000.

UMike bringing the noise. Great stuff my Brotha. Loving it mane. Go Canes.

UMike

One of the boys in m shelter, the crazy athletic kid I spoke about...his 16yo cousin was shot and killed just 2 blocks from our shelter Sunday night. We will literally playing ball outside 2 blocks away when it happened. Kid just made the honor roll, but happen to be walking with a gang member/associate. If any of you are involved with young people, interact with young people or simply have a chance meeting with a young person, especially at risk ones...please take a second and encourage them or drop a little knowledge on them. We lose to many young people, to many dont have anyone in their eye telling them their on the wrong path or associating with te wrong people etc.

SOUP

UMike is Da Man!

And I do believe that he also is proving for a FACT that blind spots, once removed, can become great opportunities for learning, growth and development. U gotta love that guy!

Well done again, UMike! Glad U are turning that frown upside down! Lol

Ohio_Cane

I LOVE Mark Walton's attitude. This kid is going to be really good here. He's gained 13 lbs of muscle (from 180 to 193) since his HS season and is expecting he'll be at 200 by the time Fall practice comes around.

I think Mark Walton is going to be a very special player!!!

CaneRock

Definitely gonna need Walton to ball out for a successful season.

CaneRock

And with the emergence of Walton, do they RS Gray?

SinisterCane

Coastal or Bust!!!

UMike

Just for the record I am still not convinced Golden is the right guy to bring us #6....BUT...I am hoping he can prove me wrong and I want to try enjoy the off season and next year. He has the tools and talent so succeed so lets hope he does.

raizecane

UCF has officially become my 2nd favorite team to root for.

Why you ask? Well, my youngest daughter got accepted to attend college there. Now I will have two kids that have done something nobody in my entire family have been able to do prior to my oldest doing it....attend college.

Go Canes / Go Nights :-)

UMike

Raize...congrats!!! My son is 16, will be 17 in a few months. In two weeks we are taking tour to the Nashville Film Institute that he was invited to. He also recently got a letter from the University of Kentucky wanting him to tour. When I was a kid this stuff never crossed my mind...I attended some Community College, that is ALL the college experience in my family. He will be the first person to graduate High School in my family, God willing.

Whatever school he attends will immediately be my 2nd team and/or 1A lol

I agree 100% UMike, if he cant pull it off this year Native crosses to the other side!

Dem Canes!!!

Umike......wishing him luck. Thats awesome. In my case, it shows that I did a better job as a parent then my parents. Or I should say, my kids had a better opportunity. As parents, thats all you can do so each generation gets better.

Son graduating from bowling Green ,Toledo oh next month thank thee lord, going out and trade in car for brand new one right after he does.

Ranking the ACC's Football Coaching Jobs in 2015 (Expert Poll)

4. Miami is an interesting case study in pros and cons. On the positive side, the Hurricanes offer as much upside as any program in the nation, winning national titles in three different decades and have the easiest access to elite prospects of any program in the nation. But fan and administrative support is inferior to any nationally elite programs and the home-field advantage is non-existent. This is why The U was the only other team to get a first-place vote — and was voted ninth twice.

His Royal Dudeness

CR,

You don't RS TG now. You just split the rock and let as many guys as possible tote the rock. Gray, Edwards, Yearby, etc. just run their young legs. Every RB in America should go to a deep stable of RBs, with their JR or SR year as the top guy. No sense in using up your legs. Now, TG can play 4 or 5 positions, but if I'm him, I'm not leaving RB because I've already committed to the position. I'm just going to bust my @$$ and force the team to play me.

Lurker

To me, running back seems to be the type of position where you let a couple guys develop a rhythm, and as long as they do perform, that seems to be how you get the best performance out of running backs. I've never seen a program where they shuffled four and five running backs in and out, and that was successful. If there's one that exist, I'd like to be aware of it. But just from thousands of games we've all watched, I don't believe it's ever been a successful strategy. Just my thoughts.

Lurker

That doesn't mean you can't use more than a couple of running backs, but of all the football I've followed, it's usually just a couple of guys getting about 90% of the carries or more

Surfercane

Why is this 2016 class so good "assuming it sticks"? All FL and most all South Fl recruits awesome!

The Dude

Posted by: Lurker | April 16, 2015 at 04:33 PM

USC under Carroll, Urban Meyer has always rotated a lot of backs, Nick Saban, Georgia, LSU.

The Dude

Yearby should get about 60-65% as the feature back. Then you should have 3-4 guys splitting the rest situationally.

The Dude

2016 still needs a TE, a few OL, a couple of DTs.

The Dude

Very little beef in the 2016 class, but DE is solid.

CaneRock

Lurker...agree with you on the rhythm part.

TD...yeah, I remember watching USC play UVA one year, and they must've played at least 6 RBs in that game. But that game was a blowout, don't know their RB rotation in the closer games.

The Dude

Posted by: CaneRock | April 16, 2015 at 05:13 PM

Exactly, you still give your best guy the ball when the game is contested, so as I said: running within the context of the game. My hope is, that there are ZERO close games next year and our starters are always on the bench in the middle of the 3rd quarter. That said, Golden rotates players a lot, so I don't think carries will be an issue for the top 4 RBs.

Go Canes

I wonder if Gray can be kept eligible without dangling the playing time carrot in front of him.

The guy seems to struggle big time in the classroom. Making him do what he has to in the classroom with no payoff on the field may be tough.

The Dude

^^^ As someone who struggles in the classroom myself, I'm rooting for the kid.

The Dude

Have you guys seen this thing on Britt McHenry from ESPN? What a b*tch.

CaneRock

TD...I have no problem with what She said, tow people are sleazy MFs. There's a young lady I used to work with, who's car got towed with Her daughter in the backseat. Screw those bozos.

The Dude

Nah man. She shouldn't talk to the lady like she did.

Lurker

I don't see that, dude. Unless it's a blowout, but that's not what we were talking about. Not to be argumentative, but I just don't see 3-4 backs splitting 35% of the carries, assuming that your feet your back get 65% . Yeah you might get a guy gets in for one or two carries but that doesn't tell you anything. But anyway, I don't know who keeps those statistic so I could be wrong, you could be wrong, who the hell knows

KYcane

Raize - congratulations. My youngest has also been accepted at UCF and will start this fall.

Been having the "discussion" about living on campus or off since as you know I am not that far.

Told her I would rent an apartment if she took her sister with her. She didn't take the deal.

KYcane

UMike,

Congratulations to you as well. Stopped being a UK fan at an early age but Lexington is a very nice place.

UMike good article, except for the part about being a "hater"! You not a hater, you're a realist, you haven't said nothing that wasn't true! The problem is Homers have changed the definition of "hate". You don't like Golden just like 95% of the fan base, and it's not like you don't have a reason to hate him, in fact there's plenty of reasons! You're just a normal fan

How did Duke get the "injury-prone" tag? Because he broke his ankle once? I don't remember him missing any time other than that...

UMike

Ohio..I know he sat some or came out with big heads or concussion symptoms I thought. Cant think of another "injury" though

Lurker

That's why these so-called "analysts" have to be taken with a grain of salt. Yes, Duke did suffer that one catastrophic ankle injury, which does not make him injury prone. In fact he came back with screws in his ankle and looked great. The other stuff, was extremely rare. Nowadays, they make you check and doublecheck any kind of head issue, suspected concussions, migraines, anything like that they try to hold the players back, I think it has a lot to do with liability. But no, I don't believe Duke was injury prone at all, and I don't see how anybody who follows the program closely would actually think that

UMike

big hits***

CaneRock

I know Duke has a history of migraines, but so did Terrell Davis. Duke's a tough kid, that shot He took in last year's VT game would've had most players out for a couple of weeks...but He came back against UNC and ran for 177 on 19 carries.

Gin & Tonic

As a GM, I'd be more concerned with Duke's fumble problems than him being injury prone.

His Royal Dudeness

Duke is going to be that player that everyone wonders why he wasn't drafted in the first round.

Lurker

This

Terrance Sullivan

What Gin and Tonic Said.

UMike

Was it me or did it seem like Duke let go of the ball almost immediately after being tackled? Always seemed like he let it go (once down) right away and got up quick...I wonder if that thinking process and/or habit contributed to his fumble issues.

CaneRock

UMike...I noticed that also. But I can only remember 1 time where that was an issue, the rest of em' were forced.

1canesfan

Congratulations KY and Raize.
My son is in his second semester at UCF and lives on campus.
One thing I should mention is that ALL parking garages have only one camera at the entrance/exit and there are numerous hit and runs, auto burglaries and GTA's.
The UCFPD tells the students that without video surveillance they cannot help them.
We found this out the hard way after his car was stolen and stripped all in the same parking garage.
He's gotten over twelve hundred signatures currently requesting parking garage cameras and has been interviewed by numerous local news agencies as well as meeting with the board of trustees two weeks ago.

you here in Orlando?

JCane

Lot of wasted opportunities tonight as the U went down, 5-4, at UVa. FWIW, Louisville won their game vs. WFU. The main value of being the 1 seed going in to the ACC tnmt. would be the 1-4-5-8 bracket vs. being in the 2-3-6-7 bracket, although the ACC tnmt. isn't the end all, be all. It's tough to advance to the CWS without getting a top 8 or at least close to it seed, where the shot of hosting a superregional is there. I know I'm jumping the gun here, but I'd love to see the U head back to Omaha again.

Good morning spacers. Here's to a UM baseball series win.

KYcane-I'm a native and have been a Miami guy since 81'.
It's a long story on how that came to be.

JCane

For those interested, the U is up 2-1 in the bottom of the 7th at UVa, with UM getting a run each in the 5th and 6th innings to tie and then take the lead. One out and the U is making a pitching change.

JCane

Still 2-1, with the U having Z. Collins thrown out at home in the top of the 8th and UVa now having two runners on in the bottom of the 8th.

Damn we gave away the series to those Zima drinking Cavaliers.

Sorry about that...very busy at times with work, as well as my sons' basketball activities. My older son has an absolutely loaded team this year...at least three of them can dunk.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ those were the days, when I could dunk on a put back.

TonyCane

Just sent in some on campus photos from a very memorable Canes win.

JCane

That 8th inning was a killer. Starting off with a pitching change and opening it up with an immediate double by the Cavaliers, then pouring it on from there. I had hoped to at least take 2 of 3, but now there's the chance to salvage game 3 at 10am tomorrow and avoid being swept. I suppose better to get the road jitters out of the system now.
