This ad is misleading as if they're the one investing 400 million into the stadium.
Posted by: SinisterCane | May 17, 2015 at 06:36 PM

That's not what they're saying, and no one thinks they're actually trying to fool anyone.

If the university actually thought they had intentionally misled anyone, they would have pulled the ad and issued an apology. It still runs to this day.

The only criticism I would have of the ad is that it gives people that are intent on attacking the university, like gators, noles, and others, false ammunition. But that would be nitpicking on my part.

Go Canes

The whole argument about the school taking credit for the reno is ridiculous.

Trying to do that would be as dumb as Al Gore claiming they invented the Internet.

There's no intent there and anyone claiming otherwise is grasping at ways to criticize.

No flame we disagree and that's fine enjoy the rest of your Sunday

The Dude

I don't see it guys. Honestly, wtf does Miami care on WHO invested the money? There is zero incentive to claim that they invested the money. I think they are showing how much money has been invested in the future, noy how much money THEY'VE invested in the future. I mean, even the locker rooms (The Rock) and the Meeting Room (Jon Vilma) and the nutrition table were all investments by other people. I think it's really nitpicking to go after Miami on this. I don't think they are trying to mislead anyone, again, there's no reason to.

If you think somebody is dead wrong, say so. But avoid comments about somebody as a person, unless it's something good.

I agree with this 100%.

OK, I call total BS!

Everyone knows that CANESPACE created the Internet. That is not even in question is it???

The Dude

And Al Gore never actually claimed to have invented the internet, only that he was instrumental in fostering an environment in which the internet could grow and develop. It's something he really should have pushed harder.

http://www.snopes.com/quotes/internet.asp

Lurker

That was still a grandiose claim, dude.

"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

He actually said that.

While not technically saying he himself created the Internet, he is giving himself credit for being a leading force in actually creating the Internet. That's close. If he had said that to me in an interview, I would have immediately disqualified him for being intentionally misleading, for taking credit for something that he had no role in creating.

It would be like Miami saying they took the initiate in and were the driving force in getting Stephen Ross to make $400 million improvements to the stadium, rather than their current position of saying the program is the beneficiary of that $400 m investment.

If you read the history on the development of the Internet, it goes back several decades, and Al Gore had nothing to do with that or in creating an environment that facilitated the growth and/or development of the Internet.

You or I were at least as instrumental at developing the Internet when we got our first Compuserve accounts...and if you don't know what is, then you're in your 20's.

By the way, this isn't political, because politicians of all stripes lie, it's just that he got called out on his outrageous bullsh*t.

86Cane

I don't care what ANYONE says, it was CANESPACE that created the Internet. And that's a fact Jack!

ACC Baseball Championship, 1 p.m. (ESPN2)

86Cane

Miami’s men’s team finished 11th with 36 points and had several noteworthy performances on Saturday.

Artie Burns finished second in the men’s 110m hurdles with a time of 13.70 seconds, while Christian Cook placed fourth with a time of 14.05 seconds. The duo picked up 13 points for the Hurricane men.

“When I first go there I was pretty nervous,” Burns said. “I hadn’t run in an outdoor meet since my senior year of high school in 2012, but I think I did well. It means a lot to score for my team. I feel like I could have won, but I am moving on to regionals so I have another chance to go out there and win.”

Miami’s men’s 4x100m relay team of Artie Burns, Josh Johnson, Robert Grant and Christian Cook combined to finish third with a time of 40.31 seconds and score six points for the Hurricane men.

86Cane

The University of Miami track and field program had a Top 3 finish for the second consecutive year at the ACC Outdoor Championships.

Miami’s women placed third with 93 points at the 2015 ACC Outdoor Championships, following up last year’s third place finish with another strong showing at the conference meet.

The Hurricane women were led by sophomore Shakima Wimbley. The talented sprinter accounted for 22.5 of Miami’s 93 points and was named the women’s track MVP.

"It's one of the best feelings in the world," Wimbley said. "Coach Deem put me in four events and she had confidence in me to handle it so I did and the rest followed."

Wimbley won the women’s 400m with a personal-best time of 50.84 seconds that ranks fourth in the world. Wimbley’s time also tied the facility record, set a new ACC record and improved on her UM record by nearly a full second. Wimbley earned a gold medal, scored 10 points for Miami’s women and posted the fastest 400m time in the country.

The sophomore also ran the seventh-fastest 200m time in the world, 22.43 seconds, to set an ACC record and a facility record while earning a gold medal. Wimbley also broke the UM record of 22.46 set by Lauryn Williams in 2004.

In a press conference on Monday morning,, Louisiana Tech Athletics Director Tommy McClelland introduced former University of Miami assistant coach Eric Konkol as the new head coach of Bulldog Basketball.

"I could not be more excited to be the men's basketball coach at Louisiana Tech University," Konkol said. "A standard of excellence is growing here at Louisiana Tech. It is a direct result of the collective commitment by past and current administrators, coaches and players. Our goal is to keep pushing forward and continue to challenge for Conference USA championships and trips to the NCAA Tournament. I would like to thank Dr. Guice, Tommy McClelland, the search committee, Dr. Donna Thomas and the athletics council and the entire community of Ruston for welcoming me and my family to Louisiana Tech."

Konkol goes to Ruston having spent the past four seasons on the Miami staff. Prior to that, he was with Jim Larrañaga for seven years at George Mason and has assisted in all aspects including recruiting, practices, individual player workouts and game preparation.

"Eric Konkol is one of the brightest young coaches in the college game," said Miami Coach Jim Larrañaga. "His intelligence, energy, enthusiasm and commitment to academics are at the highest level. His knowledge of the game, his ability to recruit outstanding student athletes, and his ability to communicate with those players will make him highly successful as a head coach. The players at Louisiana Tech are going to love this guy, just like our Miami players did."

The announcement of the 18th head coach in program history comes 11 days after the job became open with former LA Tech coach Michael White accepting the same position at the University of Florida.

"Eric has a national reputation as a great recruiter, a rising star and a coach with a highly intelligent basketball mind," McClelland said. "We are grateful to have him lead our men's basketball program. Coach Konkol represents our philosophy of developing champions in the classroom, on the court and in life."

Eight From @CanesBaseball Named All-ACC

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The University of Miami led all programs with eight individuals selected to the 2015 All-ACC baseball teams, as announced Monday by the conference office.

The Hurricanes, who finished with the best overall record of any ACC team at 42-13 and will be the No. 2 seed at the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship beginning this week, had three first-team selections, one second-team selection and four third-team selections.

Junior third baseman David Thompson, sophomore catcher / designated hitter Zack Collins and second baseman George Iskenderian were among those recognized with first-team honors.

Thompson, the nation’s RBI leader with 78, led the ACC in home runs (19) and was named one of 35 semifinalists for the Dick Howser Trophy. Collins, a catalyst for Miami’s current 12-game winning streak, finished the season batting .310 with 14 home runs and 60 RBI, the second-most in the ACC. Iskenderian took home the ACC’s regular season batting title in his first year with the Hurricanes, finishing with a .391 average and starting all 55 games.

Junior lefthander Thomas Woodrey, who anchored Miami’s rotation with a 6-2 record and a 2.62 ERA, was the lone second-team selection.

Sophomore outfielder Willie Abreu, closer Bryan Garcia, senior catcher Garrett Kennedy and redshirt junior lefthander Andrew Suarez were named to the All-ACC Third Team. Abreu hit .297 in his second season as a starter, Garcia ranked fourth in the ACC with nine saves, Kennedy broke out with a .361 season batting average, while Suarez finished with a 7-1 record and a 2.95 ERA.

Miami opens the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship Wednesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park against the winner of a play-in game between No. 7 seed Virginia and No. 10 seed Georgia Tech. The game, slated for broadcast on RSN/ESPN3, 560 WQAM and WVUM 90.5 FM, is set for 3 p.m.

Chargers' Denzel Perryman: 'I can't wait to play the Dolphins'

Denzel Perryman is in a strange land.

After growing up in Miami and playing high school football in the city, Perryman chose to stay close to home and attend the University of Miami.

Those days are a thing of the past now after the San Diego Chargers made the linebacker a second-round pick in this year's draft. He's moved clear across the country, but has a very important date in December marked on his calendar when a certain opponent will visit San Diego.

"I can't wait to play the Dolphins," Perryman told Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego. "December 20. I've already got it circled on my schedule. It's the hometown team, and it's one of the teams that passed me up."

Perryman seemed to believe the Dolphins planned to draft him and appears upset things didn't pan out.

"They were talking to me, telling me all this good stuff," Perryman said. "We're all grown. You can tell me you're going to take me or not. Don't sugar coat with me. It is what it is. But Dec. 20, it's on and popping. Every other week, too."

With or without a chip on his shoulder, Perryman is a talented player. Still, a little extra motivation never hurts.

UM Surpasses $1.6 Billion M2 Campaign Goal

It is with deep gratitude and appreciation that I share with you some very special news. The University of Miami has received a "breakthrough" gift of $55 million from the Miller family, one of Miami's most distinguished and civically engaged families.

Stuart A. Miller, chair of the University of Miami's Board of Trustees, has just announced that his family will provide $50 million to build a new state-of-the-art medical education building on the campus of the Miller School of Medicine and $5 million to support the Frost School of Music.

On behalf of our entire community, I extend our heartfelt thanks to the Miller family for their outstanding philanthropic leadership and investment in the mission of the University of Miami.

This momentous commitment has officially lifted our $1.6 billion Momentum2: The Breakthrough Campaign for the University of Miami over the goal for a total of $1,618,034,779. This overall achievement was reached more than a year ahead of schedule — an amazing tribute to the generosity of each and every one of the nearly 138,000 donors who made this possible. The success of this campaign follows the first Momentum campaign, which raised over $1.4 billion.

During the tenure of UM President Donna E. Shalala, who is stepping down at the end of this month, the two Momentum campaigns have raised an unprecedented $3 billion for the University — resulting in increased student scholarships, endowed chairs and professorships, innovative programs, and a transformation of our campuses. Read more here.

Our two Momentum campaigns have truly been "Powered by YOUR Philanthropy," and we thank you!

Warm regards,

Sergio M. Gonzalez
Senior Vice President, University Advancement and External Affairs

I wouldn't have...

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | May 18, 2015 at 04:58 PM

They were in a bit of a tough spot, as illustrated by this site detailing his previous contract

http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/miami-dolphins/ryan-tannehill/

Tannehill's deal expired after this season. Miami would be left with the option of franchising him or letting him walk. My opinion is that he has not been good enough yet to justify the deal, but this (like most NFL deals) are based on future performance. With the Dolphins FINALLY having invested resources into the wide receiver position, Ryan should take off this season.

As for some stats, let's see how he compares against other more notable QBs:

TANNEHILL
2012: 3,294 yards, 12 TDs 13 INT
2013: 3,913 yards, 24 TDs 17 INT
2014: 4,045 yards, 27 TDs 12 INT

ELI MANNING
2004: 1,043 yards, 06 TDs 09 INT
2005: 3,762 yards, 24 TDs 17 INT
2006: 3,244 yards, 24 TDs 18 INT

TOM BRADY
2001: 2,843 yards, 18 TDs 12 INT
2002: 3,764 yards, 28 TDs 14 INT
2003: 3,620 yards, 23 TDs 12 INT

JOE FLACCO
2008: 2,971 yards, 14 TDs 12 INT
2009: 3,613 yards, 21 TDs 12 INT
2010: 3,622 yards, 25 TDs 10 INT

BEN ROETHLISBERGER
2004: 2,621 yards, 17 TDs 11 INT
2005: 2,385 yards, 17 TDs 09 INT
2006: 3,513 yards, 18 TDs 23 INT

MATT RYAN
2008: 3,440 yards, 16 TDs 11 INT
2009: 2,916 yards, 22 TDs 14 INT
2010: 3,705 yards, 28 TDs 09 INT

DREW BREES
2002: 3,284 yards, 17 TDs 16 INT
2003: 2,108 yards, 11 TDs 15 INT
2004: 3,159 yards, 27 TDs 07 INT

Tannehill has not performed in his first three years like Philip Rivers or Peyton Manning, but appears to be in the range of some of the quarterbacks above. Two big factors for him is that he has improved each year that he has been here, and he now finally has the talent to maximize his potential.

Must be bad, I've never had a problem falling asleep, at the end of the day I'm so tired when my head hits the pillow I go right out.

It's not as bad anymore thanks to prescription drugs, but there was about 10 years 16-26 that were really awful.

That's more of a short term solution, per the recommendations. I've used them very rarely, like in jet lag situations, the issue will always be habituation, and dose tolerance. I'm sure you already know that, and know they're not a long term solution for you. Good luck, good health, and I hope you continue your exploration of other solutions

@YahooDrSaturday: Ex-Notre Dame QB Everett Golson will transfer to Florida State, per @BruceFeldmanCFB.

Following Winston, this indicates win no matter what at FSU. Guy has some baggage.

Oh well, he has to sit out a year right?

Lurker

He plays right away as a graduate student.

I guess the "negotiations" were successful, even though Golson drove a hard bargain on salary and extra perks. I know that Publix extra benefits package is back in place.

@Mattyports: In his last 9 games of 2014, Golson threw 14 INT (four pick-6s) and fumbled 12 times (eight lost). FSU starting job won't be handed to him.

For Terrance's eyes only:

WACO, Texas – Junior Stephanie Wagner of the University of Miami women’s tennis team was honored by the ITA for the second time in as many weeks Tuesday.

After being tabbed as the ITA Southeast Region Player to Watch May 12, Wagner has now garnered an even more prestigious accolade, as she was named the recipient of the ITA National Player to Watch award.

“I think to get recognized for this award on a national level is really great motivation going into the NCAA individual championships,” Miami head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. “Steffi has received a lot of awards this year that I think are very deserving and show the work that she has put in . . . Leading into next year, I think is really going to kind of pave the way for her [as well].”

The honor is given to someone who has been ranked in the top-20, is regarded as one of the top returning players in the country, has had an outstanding career, and has yet to make the finals of an ITA national event. The selection pool comes from the 12 regional award winners as well as any at-large candidates the ITA National Awards Committee chooses to consider.

In addition to win the ITA’s National Player to Watch and Southeast Region Player to Watch awards this m, Wagner has already locked up 2015 ITA All-America honors by being seeded at the NCAA Singles Championship. She was previously named the ITA Southeast Region Rookie of the Year in 2013.

Wagner is currently ranked No. 11 in the nation in singles and has been in the top 11 the entire 2015 season. The Amberg, Germany native is also a part of the country’s No. 17 doubles pair, alongside senior Lina Lileikite, with whom she will participate in the NCAA Doubles Championship.

The three-time All-ACC selection is one of just 30 players in the nation named to the initial fields for both the NCAA Singles Championship and the NCAA Doubles Championship. She is among just 17 from that group seeded in either field, as she holds the No. 9-16 spot in the singles tournament.

Wagner is 16-5 in singles dual matches in 2015, including a 13-4 record at the No. 1 spot. She has posted 10 victories against nationally ranked opponents. Including the fall, Wagner has defeated three players ranked in the top 10 during her junior campaign.

In doubles play, Wagner is 8-4 at the top position and she is undefeated in 2015 against regional opponents in both singles and doubles competition.

Named a First Team All-ACC pick this season after finishing fourth in the all-conference voting, Wagner helped lead Miami (18-7, 12-2 ACC) to its 10th consecutive Sweet 16 appearance.

Wagner and ACC Freshman of the Year Sinead Lohan will begin play in the NCAA Singles Championship May 20. Wagner and Lileikite will then open play in the NCAA Doubles Championship the following day. All of the action is scheduled to take place at Baylor University in Waco.

BRADENTON, Fla. – University of Miami sophomore golfer Daniela Darquea made a bit of history Monday evening at Bradenton Country Club as she qualified for the 2015 United States Women’s Open Golf Championship.

Darquea posted a two-round total of 139, posting rounds 68 and 71 en route to sharing medalist honors. Qualifier

“I’m super excited. I’m speechless,” Darquea said. “I’m really looking forward to competing in the U.S. Open. It was a very long and difficult course and when the wind blew that made it really tough.”

The Quito, Ecuador native shined as she carded six birdies. The Bradenton Sectional Qualifier featured over 70 competitors on the challenging par 71 course, which measured over 6,300 yards.

“I’m not surprised that Dani qualified for the U.S. Open,” said head coach Patti Rizzo. “Dani is a great player. I’ve always said that every part of her game is strong. I’m sure she’ll do great in the Open. She is on the perfect path to the top. She is one of the players that I really thought in my 10 years of coaching could really make it big.”

The 70th U.S. Women’s Open Golf Championship will be held July 9-12 at Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pa. Darquea will compete in the U.S. Open as an amateur.

Darquea’s bid to the U.S. Open adds to an already impressive 2014-15 campaign where she was one of 12 golfers selected to the ACC’s all-league team.

During the 2014-15 campaign, Darquea posted a team-best scoring average of 73.29 and led the squad with 90 birdies.

In addition, Darquea finished in the top 15 in seven different events, including a winning performance at the Briar’s Creek Invitational. Darquea tied for eighth at the 2015 ACC Championship after she carded a three-round total of 214.

The U.S. Women’s Open will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports.

Who owns a Saiga here?

@mattyports: Contrary a report elsewhere, source said UM won't seek NCAA waiver for UF transfer Gerald Willis III. No reason to believe he'd be cleared.

Go Canes

@mattyports: Willis (6-2, 260) expects to join UM in June and will be able to train/practice, but won't play until 2016. Was 5-star 2014 recruit per 247.

Lurker

FSF should have all the canes bb games, if one of the ESPNs doesn't take it first, so I think we should be able to see all of them as long as you're not working those hours, like tomorrow

Lurker

Also I'm pretty sure the title game will be one of the ESPNs

Heat get the 10th pick in the draft.

Yes. You're right. ESPN2 on Sunday at 1:00 (no jinx)

Thanks TS. On a somewhat related matter, ever notice Sage Rosenfels eyes? They're at different levels on his face.

Barry:

It isn’t necessarily easy for coaches to change their approach, especially two as headstrong as the defensive coordinators of the Dolphins (Kevin Coyle) and Hurricanes (Mark D’Onofrio).

But players said some change is afloat with how both of them operate. The question is how much will it help.

In Coyle’s case, coach Joe Philbin asked him to “simplify” the defense.

“What happened is we had too many personnel packages, too many combinations,” Philbin said. “You want to take advantage of the strengths of your personnel. Sometimes it's hard to get the preparation down and get these guys confident in all their assignments.

"We have to shrink our personnel packages and we have to get better at our core defense. We have to have some things to hang our hat on. We have to do a better job coaching. We have to do a better job of demanding it. We're simplifying personnel wise and condensing our packages a bit."

Players have embraced the change, although those who play less as a result will not be so thrilled.

Safety Reshad Jones said it is “definitely” a smart new approach.

“It will be a lot simpler," Jones said last week. "We have a lot of Pro Bowl guys that can make plays on our defense. That's the key; make it a lot simpler for guys to just run to make plays.”

As safety Michael Thomas said: “Coach Coyle is trying to make it where we're just going out there and playing fast.”

In UM’s case, defensive end Ufomba Kamalu said D’Onofrio made some tweaks to create “more of an aggressive defense” and that the defensive ends are being “asked to get in the backfield sooner” and “just have to worry about your gap now” instead of the two-gap approach that UM has played a lot in the past.

The two-gap requires defensive linemen to line up head up against an offensive lineman and assume responsibility for the gaps on either side.

The parent of a prominent UM player said “speaking to the players, they say the defensive scheme will change [some]. You’ll see a lot more pressure that what we’ve been seeing.”

It's expected UM will continue to play both the 4-3 and the 3-4.

Without discussing specific strategic adjustments, D’Onofrio said: “We wanted to focus the group on making more progress toward the quarterback. We want to keep collapsing the pocket, keep making progress toward the quarterback.”

He said new defensive line coach Randy Melvin has done a good job conveying that new emphasis, as well as the technique needed to execute it.

But whether D’Onofrio makes any fundamental schematic changes in his defensive backfield remains to be seen; some critics believe that’s needed.

D’Onofrio has said in the past that perceptions of his defensive approach aren’t necessarily true, that UM plays more man defense with its cornerbacks than many perceive. Two players privately have said they wish D'Onofrio played more man defense.

Al Golden has strongly disputed the notion that UM at times plays its safeties too deep, though video evidence from the Georgia Tech game suggests otherwise.

Golden has said publicly several times this offseason that there will be changes in UM's approach. Coconut Creek receiver Binjimen Victor told Canesport.com recently that "they are going to change the way they do things,... but didn't say how."

Anything that better capitalizes on the pass-rushing skills of UM's talented group of defensive ends is a good start. But regardless of what Coyle and D'Onofrio change about their approach, the onus ultimately falls on the players to execute it.


The Dude

^^^ It's hard for anyone to admit they're completely wrong. Maybe Mark & Al are finally listening?
