Morning Spacers!!

Ohio, I was thinking of you all weekend buddy, me and my gf might be taking on her 15 month old nephew...the mom just decided to leave all 4 of her kids smdh. Hope your situation is getting easier man.

Very excited about this draft, this will help recruiting in the off season and if we can win games our class should be elite. Felt good seeing a Cane in the top 10 and 2 first rounders.

On a personal note, I got to tour the Nashville Film Institute with my son and it was awesome. The kid was in heaven with all the equipment lol

trianglecane

Ohio, I second what umike said. You are in my prayers brother.

CaneRock

LMAO!

Now all of a sudden Pacquiao had a "bum shoulder"...or He had an "off night".

While Pacquiao is a legend, He lost to an ALL TIME GREAT! YOU CAN'T GET YOUR MONEY BACK!....so chalk it up as a loss and figure out how to win!

UMike

From what I had read when Mayweather adjusted, Pacquiao never did...sounds familiar huh lol...People need to understand Floyd is a BOXER....not a FIGHTER. He is a master of the sweet science. I still believe Roy Jones is the best boxer Ive ever seen with my own eyes, but Floyd is 2nd best.

UMike, that's exactly what I felt would determine this fight, adjustments, and adjustments to adjustments. Floyd just made that dude look like an amateur.

UMike

I cant stand Floyd as a person...but you cant argue he is an all time great.

UMike

Sadly once his time has past, which is probably pretty soon, boxing will fade. I use to love boxing, love it. But there's no more great heavyweights, only 1-2 fighters that attract and both seem out the door. UFC/MMA might overtake boxing in a few years.

Agreed, this draft has got to the get the kids attention. But both positive and negative:

Positive: Regardless on how the team/coaches are I can shine. With so much history of the school if I fo there they will come the NFL will come and look for me.

Negative: These coaches were not putting the players in the right position to win. The players are some of the best (the NFL wants them) but they could not win? The coaches must not be good.

Look at a team like Washington?? They had 3 players taken in the first round, DL, CB, and LB. Their defense should have been really good with that. But they sucked, that's all coaching. Sadly, the same can be said for us.

We have the players, just need the coaching to pick it up!

Thank U very much. We had the funeral/burial yesterday. Seeing those kids faces as they said goodbye to their 2nd parent was really difficult to watch. Had my arm around his son the entire time we were at the funeral home/cemetary. Wherever he went, I went. All day.

We find out today if we're submitting our petition for custody of the 2 kids.

Hope everything is going Ok for U as well. U have my prayers as well for your family and that little man.

More Draft picks than Victories is what you get from this Div-II coaching staff

Based on her piss poor hires within the athletic department anything regarding football Donna should be hands off. She's more likely to sign a 20 yrs. lease at Traz Powell Stadium

Interesting tidbit so far their have been 46,392 Miami Hurricanes season tickets sold/allocated out of the new Sun Life Stadium capacity of 65,326. With 4 months to go my guess is the season tickets average will be around 55,000. Which in my opinion should be capacity for our Miami Hurricanes games unless it's a premium game and then it can be the 65,326. 40_000 is just simply to small and wouldn't work. Go Canes.

Voila! The talent has been on the roster since the 2011 season. Now was it conference contending Cane talent during the '11 or ' 12 or '13 seasons. Probably not. But it surely WASN'T .500 talent or 7-5 season ending talent. And dare I utter LOSING SEASON talent!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh. One more thing. The beloved Golden has had squads which have lost to teams which ENDED the season with a LOSING record in each and every season since he's been in Coral Gables. LOL

And dig this Golden loyalists, satraps, apologists and lackeys. Miami lost to TWO squads which finished the 2011 season with LOSING RECORDS!!!!!!!!! SMH

In other words, with relatively QUALITY head coaching and defensive coordinator coaching. The Hurricanes finish with a " 8-4 " record in Golden's first season at Miami and not with a .500 season.

But that's all MOOT now!

TheeMackJones

Personally speaking. Feliciano was the SURPRISE draft choice of all the Hurricanes. So mega kudo's to Feliciano. The kid deserved his just comeuppance after all the sacrafice and hard work he put in to get where his going.

Oh. I thought Walford would go in the 2nd round, but I was still A-OK with my touts on the other Canes draft round selections.

In rebuttal to your Washington example.

Miami played Nebraska and WOULD HAVE WON that game with better coaching! SEE defensive coordinator and head coach.

And lo and behold. The Cornhuskers have 2 Second round draft selections and one 5th round selection, ONLY!!!!

UFC/MMA might overtake boxing in a few years.

Posted by: UMike | May 04, 2015 at 09:00 AM

Honestly don't agree.

They've ALREADY overtaking them. They get way more hype for more different fights right now. The only hype you ever see in boxing is Mayweather (and to a lesser extent pacman) related. So not only has traditional boxing been already bypassed, once Mayweather and Pacquiao retire from the scene it'll be down to nothing. Just my opinion of course.

UMike

Lurker, I agree, thats what I was getting at. Although I think right now boxing still draws more PPV buys and bigger pay days for boxers etc, but as far as popularity MMA has probably already surpassed it.

Lurker

You're probably right if you include Mayweather/ Pacquiao fights, but leave those out, and I don't have the number so I can't say for sure, but I think it be a good guess to say that all the other MMA/hybrid type events, even wrestling in its own category, totally surpass what $ boxing is producing, don't you think?

Mayweather/Pacquiao was no doubt the greatest PPV of all time in terms of dollars, but they're never going to replace those guys. Is there anybody coming up the can generate that kind of interest? I haven't seen any, have you? There is, I sure haven't heard of anybody.

Lurker

Anyway, we both agree, boxing as a sport of consequence is already dead or dying on the vine. My pop used to tell me that they used to have boxing every week on TV. It was a huge deal back in the 60s and before, like the NFL is now.

Ohio_Cane

Gunter signed with Packers.

AfriCane

Boxing is on critical condition, but it's not going to die. Y are sports like football, basketball & baseball so popular? U can make a ton of cash from it. And that's y athletes, especially from poorer areas will always go into it. U r never going to see 300 million fight in MMA. U r not even going to see a 20million fight.
Also, the damn fights only last max, 5 rounds. S whole feeling rounds! I don't care how spectacular the take downs are, 5 round is not worth my money. Granted, boxing match can end in one round too but so can a MMA fight. If both fighters r willing, U can fight up to 12 rounds in boxing, longer back in the days. In MMA, if both fighters r willing, they go max 5 rounds.
We talk about mothers not letting their kids go in to football anymore because of health risks, what mother would let their kids go into a sport where they have 10 different ways to get maimed. How about that broccoli ear they get from repeated poundage; really sexy that.
Lastly, boxing is a great sport. The sweet science, mastery, indeed almost ballet like when two master practitioners go at it. MMA is simple, unadoltrated savagery. I'm not saying it shouldn't be staged, but it is not taking boxing a place at the mantle piece anytime soon. Look at a boxing match, it tells a story over those 12 rounds, agony, domination, recovery, comedy, mastery, beautiful motion. Zeus & the gods box, demons of the underworld fight MMA.

The Dude

MMA fighters take less punches to the head than boxers do. Mayweather v. Pacquiao was boxings last hurrah. Boxing was already a mute sport and it is a FACT that MMA has already taken over in popularity. Why? Probably because they have an actual league that fosters good fights. In boxing you have Mayweather dodging Pacquiao for 5 years. And then dodging him in the ring all night. I guess that's boxing? Bleh. I guess I don't want to watch "boxing," I want to watch a fight. The only good parts of boxing is when they hit eachother. Pay-per-view had killed casual boxing fans also.

Lol. Inmates running the asylum. I'd fine every one of them if I could.

The Dude

I mean seriously, who died and made any one of them GM? They think they're LeBron? Ask Cavs fans who they'd rather have, Wiggins or Love? Passing up 15 years of greatness for one shot at a championship is short-sighted. These fools need to shut up and go earn their paychecks.

When Al gets fired next year, this song goes out to Go Canes, lol.

That Terrence Crawford kid outta Nebraska is pretty good, He reminds me of a young Tommy Hearns.

The Dude

http://mobile.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/05/03/15/holyfield-i-thought-pacquiao-won/

I agree with Holyfield.

Lurker

Dude, that was an excellent link. Holyfield is not a nobody, his opinion counts. While personally I think that Mayweather did win under the way that boxing is scored now, I can see why someone would say that being an aggressor should get greater consideration. Let's be honest, a lot of Mayweather's scoring points were on sissy slap tickles. I've heard he hits his women harder than that.

CaneRock

Let's not act like Pacquiao's a choir boy now...FAR from it. Rumors of Him owning brothels in His country...tax evader...adulterer...and now, a SORE LOSER.

Lurker

Rumors I've never heard of vs documented facts, cmon CR, you're better than that

Alleged tax evasion vs documented severe violence on women.

Brothels? Never heard of that, sounds made up AF. Makes zero sense, that's penny ante profits.with hundreds of millions of dollars don't do that kind of stuff. Plus there's not one shred of evidence. Nice try.

Adulterer? You're joking, right? Who cares. You can't compare something between two consenting adults to beating the SHT out of women

Mayweather is a documented woman beater and scumbag

As far as Pacquaio, who cares. I'm not saying be a fan of Pacquiao the person.
