Yessss Sir. #Strivefor5. Go Canes. So proud of the team.

JCane

Great gutsy play, especially pulling out the opener of this series and then getting out of the 3rd inning that changed the whole complexion of the game.

The opener is a dangerous game against a very good (pains me to say) FU team. This is probably the deepest other team in this pool.

The other pool looks potentially loaded right now, with the original seeded teams still being there. Of course, two of those seeds lost today, with the Illini getting pounded by a good hitting Vandy team and the CSF Titans taking down Louisville in the 10th (on a HBP with the bases loaded, no less). TCU and LSU are the other two, and they won their super openers. LSU still ticks me off more than most, having won a baseball championship off of us with that 9th inning HR years ago, along with having Skip Bertman field. I know he did wonders for him, but the guy was the Miami Beach HS head coach and later Ron Fraser's right hand man assistant coach for years. The guy was all about south Florida, and it pains me to see LSU hit national prominence because of a guy who really should have been a UM head coach (but can't take that title away from Fraser!).

Tomorrow we know for sure who the 4th in the UM pool will be. All others are only in game 2s, so other tickets may or may not get punched.

JCane

and yes, Terrance, I'm very proud of this team and how it's fought its way through. I loved seeing Abrams come through today, although sorry that Woodrey didn't have his placement there today.

Terrance Sullivan

Great stuff JCane.

JCane

Amazing comeback in the 9th by the UVa team, down 4-2, not having scored a run since the 1st, and then getting 3 in the bottom half of the 9th by way of a walk, single, walk, then another walk for the first run, then a single to plate 2 more and walk off.

So far, the Big Ten teams haven't looked like much when playing ACC or SEC teams in the supers.

JCane

Oh, and gotta correct my typo referring to Bertman doing wonders for "him" when shoulda been "them"

College baseball truly is a lot of fun, yet never caught on as much as it could or should have. The basketball tnmt. is exciting and wonderful for gambling and office/espn pools. College baseball is more just for love of watching competitors, but a helluva lot more exciting than the pros. We never know what will happen any given day, as they're just not as good consistently in college.

JCane

In a run down memory lane, and I'm assuming only a few other middle aged and above fans would remember the 1982 run to the first national championship in baseball (taken from Wikipedia, but described pretty well). For anyone who doesn't remember the great Ron Fraser and his style:

Miami opened the College World Series with a 7–2 win over Maine. The Hurricanes followed up with a close fought 2–1 victory over Texas. Miami's third game in Omaha had perhaps the most memorable play in the history of college baseball.

In what would come to be called the Grand Illusion, the Hurricanes used a hidden ball trick to pick off NCAA stolen base leader Phil Stephenson. In the 6th inning against powerhouse Wichita State, Stephenson took his usual lead from 1st base. Hurricanes pitcher Mike Kasprzak faked a throw to the bag. First baseman Steve Lusby dove to the ground then raced down towards the Hurricane bullpen where pitchers Dan Smith and Bob Walker leaped to avoid the ball. Stephenson set out for 2nd base as Kasprzak tossed the ball over to shortstop Bill Wrona for the tag. The Hurricanes swung the momentum in their favor and went on to win 4–3.

In the semifinal two days later against Maine, Miami pitcher Rob Souza threw a pickoff attempt over the head of Bill Wrona into center field. But the memory of the Grand Illusion kept the runner from trying to advance to third. Maine head coach John Winkin said, "I thought it was another trick play." Miami rolled to a 10–4 victory that propelled them into the championship game against Wichita State.

In the championship game, Wichita State jumped out to an early 3–0 lead. In the top of the 5th, the Hurricanes scored 6 runs with the aid of a Phil Lane 3-run home run. Miami added a run in the 6th and 2 runs in the 8th before closer Dan Smith finished off the Shockers in the 9th for the Hurricanes first national championship. Smith was named College World Series MVP while Lane and catcher Nelson Santovenia were named to the all tournament team.

Fire Jim Morris?

CaneRock

“Let’s hope Steve doesn’t make it difficult,” said a high-ranking UM Board of Trustee member. “Our fans don’t like it up there; they want to be down south. That’s where our base is. You have politicians involved from the city and county, so this is difficult. But MLS needs us for the political side of getting this done. We don’t want to be a renter. We want to be a partner in the project.”

Donna Shalala, who has left UM, won’t say if she will remain involved in the stadium pursuit, but UM doesn’t expect her to have a significant role in talks moving forward. Provost Tom LeBlanc is filling in as president until Julio Frenk takes over Sept. 1.

As usual, the fire Jim Morris people were ones who never attended games or supported the program. I'm glad they've been shut down for a while now.

Terrance Sullivan

So Happy about our Canes baseball team. Going to Omaha for a chance to win ring number 5. Let's do this Canes.

CaneRock

Don't recall a heavy "fire Jim Morris" presence on CS...

CaneRock

As far as baseball is concerned, I've admitted before, that I'm a bandwagoner when it comes down to it. Really don't follow it unless UM makes it to Omaha...don't really care for Regionals & SRs besides the updates I get on CS.

Lur-ker

I've lurked for a while now, years, and I distinctly remember it. On here maybe it was just a couple of guys, but more so on other sites or social media. In fact, it was fairly vocal. But as in many of these cases, a small number of persistent, loud, and uninformed "fans" can sound like a huge number. They're entitled to their opinion, that's America, as it should be, but it has to be taken in perspective, and as they are free to express their opinion, their viewpoint is open to criticism as well.

Go Canes

They've been all over Twitter for a few years and on the Herald blogs forever.

Here not much but there have been a few.

Changing their recruiting to kids they know will sign, plus having a few who could have left has made a huge difference.

Changing their recruiting to kids they know will sign, plus having a few who could have left has made a huge difference.

Posted by: Go Canes | June 07, 2015 at 12:36 PM

That's the point.
For several years in a row, the recruiting rankings were misleading, as the top recruits never played for us, causing a gap between fan expectations and results.

Even more so if the expectation is to make it to Omaha, which is pretty hard even for a very good team. Just ask FSU - they won the regular season series against us and the ACC championship and deserved to play in Omaha, yet they are home watching the CWS on TV.

CaneRock

Who cares...the baseball team won yesterday, and like SOUP said...

"The Miami Hurricanes are going back to the College World Series.

For the first time since 2008 and for the 24th time in program history, the Hurricanes will make the trip to Omaha, Nebraska as one of the final eight teams remaining in the 2015 NCAA Baseball Championship."

^^^^^^^^^^^Praise that, instead of finding a reason to ridicule fans that don't attend games.

CaneRock

Marlin Brooks ran a 4.47 at AGFC. Now THAT'S moving for a 2017 kid.

Kid's nickname..."What Route?".

Lur-ker

I'm calling it as I see it, CR. Also, I wasn't ridiculing anyone, but those people deserved getting called out, and I did precisely that.

The prior comments about the issues with recruiting gaps and keeping kids that could have left, are huge as well.

By all rights, Suarez, our #1 starter would probably be pitching in MLB right now, he's one of the biggest reasons we've made it this far.

That's quite a risk he took as well as a financial hit. Can't be thanked enough.

JCane

Lur-ker:

What many forget is how much harder it is to advance to the CWS than it was years ago when there'd just be a bunch of regionals and the winners all went to Omaha. Also, it wasn't just based on rankings to decide hosts. Certain schools simply dominated and were routinely in Omaha every year (ie USC, Texas, CSF, UM, etc.).

Now we have to deal with regionals, superregionals, more parity, etc., and it is harder. The process is all that much more fun when the U advances though, huh?

CaneRock

I've read where UM can get better prospects, but the cost of attendance keeps a lot of em' away...is this true?

Lur-ker

Exactly right, arcane.

Yes, that's a huge issue, CR.

Look at it this way. You're a big recruit that's decided to play college ball. You love the canes. They're your team. There are limited full scholarships in baseball, and UM, FSU, and UM have none left. Where do you go? Hometown canes, right?

Well if your family is of modest means, what is a 59% scholarship going to cost them at UM vs FSU, or FU, or UCF???

About 25,000 -30,000 at UM. Probably less than 5,000 at the state schools.

Lur-ker

arcane should read Jcane

JCane

Not only costs, but a whole lot of prospects don't wait any more. Why not just go when drafted, play minor league ball for a while....More kids used to want the college education part than do now. Not blaming or judging...just the way it is.

Lur-ker

Yes, but even the ones that are willing to play college ball, have a huge entry barrier in terms of dollars at the U. More like a regular student.

Go Canes

Been watching this whole process play out first hand, my nephew is a heck of a ball player.

NCAA only allows 11 scholarships per team in baseball.

They get a lot of grants and other financial aid but it does end up costing more to attend UM than other schools...sometimes.

The equalizer is if lets say UNC offers a local kid, he's stuck paying the non resident tuition rate that's at times triple the cost. And he doesn't have the option of living at home which makes it higher than any local private school.

While I've never really been a fan of college baseball or basketball for that matter, congrats to the CANEZ on making it back to the CWS

They were out there, not many, but they were there.

JCane

Arkansas and LSU advanced today, with Arkansas filling out the UM pool, facing UVa in their opener. The winner will face the UM-FU winner, I believe.

LSU will be the top seed in the other pool in the #2 slot, and is the highest remaining national seed. Louisville, the #3 seed, was able to bounce back and beat CSF today. The next game decides who advances. Both teams are playing very well.

The last variety is anonymous hate. Political discourse has always had a shadowy component, all the way back to Thomas Paine’s pamphleteering in favor of American independence. But nothing has empowered casual vitriol in the Internet age like the pressure on news organizations to publish any and all anonymous feedback. This has scaled up our ability to express political hate with astonishing efficiency.

Before you dismiss this as harmless chatter, consider a 2014 article in the academic journal Personality and Individual Differences, titled “Trolls Just Want to Have Fun.” Three Canadian psychologists found that habitual Internet commenting is strongly correlated with hateful personality pathologies. The total amount of time spent posting comments online correlated positively with sadism, psychopathy and Machiavellianism. And this held especially true for those who relished “trolling,” the anonymous posting of negative and destructive comments. The 5 percent of participants who listed trolling as their favorite activity earned the highest scores on those unsavory psychological measures.

This evidence is alarming, although it could have its practical uses. When you are on a first date, slip in the question “Do you comment anonymously on online news articles?” Treat an enthusiastic “Yes!” as a yellow light.

Good Morning Spacers

Kudos for Good Ol' Boy Jimbo and his Miami, Florida Hurricanes Diamond Nine. No not the nine of diamonds. The baseball diamond nine. Because I've wondered the past six seasons that maybe Morris should spend more time with his grand-kids and what not. But that's all moot now.

Oh. One more thing. The Canes will be PERSONA ( team ) NON GRATA in Omaha. Simply because those hayseeds in the Hinterlands LITERALLY hate anything to do with Hurricane sports and what not ( I think that's because Miami BYTCHED SLAPPED their beloved, precious Cornhuskers in football so many times! LMFAO )

By the way, the Hurricanes have a very TOUGH DRAW with Florida. Then perhaps MIGHTY Maryland. A team which happened to upset the overall NO. 1 seed, on their home field mind U, in UCLA.

TheeMackJones

For that Lur-ker's eyes exclusively.

Personally I don't have to DEFEND my allegiance to Miami, Florida Hurricane baseball and what not. Albeit I don't follow the team as much during the regular season as I once did ( At least since the advent of the internet age and what not. ).

And what's this crap about NOT attending Cane games. Which commences to make U a FAUX PAS fan and what not. LOL Get outta' here with that mumble jumbo voodoo doo-doo.

By the way, I've been to SIX College World Series and what not. And I became a fan of Miami way, way, way, way, way back in the day.

Probably when that lurker was SHITING his pants in 1st grade and what not. LOL

Finally, SEC teams LSU and Florida are very, very bad draws for the Hurricanes. And mighty Maryland is no lame arse pushover either.

TheeMackJones

I hope TINY Cal. St.- Fullerton reaches Omaha. Because then Kevin Costner will be in Omaha and ESPN will have their annual LOVE FEST with Costner and what not.

JCane

Three Mack:

FU is a bad draw. LSU is in the other pool. Maryland has gone home already, with UVa being in that slot. Bad draws or not, if you're gonna win the CWS, you've gotta be playing your best and catch a few breaks along the way, cause you're playing good teams across the board.

Another day, another Gator in trouble with the law.

The New England Patriots announced the release of linebacker Brandon Spikes on Monday amid an investigation into whether or not his vehicle was involved in a hit-and-run accident over the weekend that resulted in three people being hospitalized.

Spikes, 27, is the subject of a police investigation after his Maybach was found abandoned and damaged Sunday in Foxborough, Massachusetts, per Laurel J. Sweet of the Boston Herald. According to Gail Waterhouse of Fox 25 in Boston, "at around the same time in the same area of 495 north, a 2009 Nissan Murano was reported hit...

I have been dealing with a Miami Hurricanes worst nightmare recently....yeah thats right, I got a 3 1/2 year old granddaughter whose mind is being poisoned by her mommas scaly gator family.
Now shes sharp as a tack and a bit of a trash talker and to be truthful it was starting to get on my nerves.
Well this weekend I was watching Gators vs Noles and that stupid Albert the Alligator was waddling around the stadium taking pictures with the mindless simpletons in Gainesvillage and I asked her if she liked him and she didnt seem that interested.
So this morning I hit her with you tube videos of Sebastian the Ibis and you would have thought the whole Mickey Mouse clubhouse showed up in the family room!
Sebastian actually got her to start to cheering the Canes and after I was sick of it she was begging for more.
Her Gammy (Mrs. Native) whom she adores and is an unabashed Ibis lover in her on right told her some Sebastian storys and I think we have turned her from the dark side.
Its a good day!

I had to promise her the trip would NOT involve any tents, or bears or or even a chainsaw. I mean who goes on a vaca trip with no chainsaw?

JCane

The CWS is almost fully rounded out now.

We have Vandy going back, although this time theoretically as an upset, taking down the top 8 seed Illini in two straight.

Bigger yet, my upset pick to hit the CWS and keep going until the championship game, Cal-State Fullerton, a team that has been finding every possibly way to win since midseason, coming back to tie Louisville and then scoring a run in the 11th to win, taking the super 2 games to 1.

The only undecided ticket right now is the TCU vs. Tex A&M winner, with the game now going into the 10th after the underdog A&M team scored 1 in the 8th and 2 in the 9th to tie things up at 4. There have been some really exciting games so far.

This means the Big Ten is eliminated with the Illini and Terrapins going 0 for their supers.

Pool A gets a double dose of ACC and SEC, with two of each. Who'd have thought two ACC teams would make it and one would have been UVa?

LSU would likely be the favorite overall, and is in pool B. This pool, on paper, looks a lot tougher with a bunch of former champs there. None of this means a thing though. Just gotta keep winning.

So 86....will Mrs. 86 be okay with the tube or smart phone going on Saturday night? Good luck! lol

Terrance Sullivan

Soup and Mrs. Soup have a blast this weekend.

JCane

TCU and T A&M now going into the 14th. If TCU wins, we have 4 of the 8 top seeds making it to Omaha. If T A&M wins, we have four SEC teams heading there. CSF will open with Vandy, and LSU awaits the winner of the game that's still being played. The winner of this pool obviously will play the U after the Canes take down pool A.

JCane

Oops, check my above math...would've been 5 SEC schools with an A&M win, but they lost in 16 innings, so there will be 2 SEC schools in each pool, 2 ACC pools in one pool, and CSF and TCU.

I think if Sam Bruce has a good/great year he will be awarded a 5th star.

I also think Travis Homer gets a 4th star.

If Pickney was to get a FSU offer he would get a 4th star as well.

Stars may or may not matter, but the more you have on the team the better you end up doing (with adequate coaching of course)

What's up Diamond Dogs?! Your old pal Mephistopheles checking in for CWS duty. Hard to believe its been 7 long years before the fellas got back to The Blatt, but better late than never.

I will confess that I have questioned the wisdom of keeping coach Morris in years past. IMO he got away from what made the Canes go, getting away from the run, run, run mentality of Prior great teams, and allowing our defense to wallow year after year.

I will also be the first to commend him on the team he's put together this year. #1 in the RPI says it all, and this team has not only upped the base-running and defense, (that outfield can cover some ground) but brings some pop to a stadium that is normally amenable to the long ball. But does it have enough to get through what IMO is the toughest route to a title in college sports? We damn sure hope so.

One thing that bodes well is their "relatively" easy path through the regionals. There are no easy games in college bball anymore, but I remember our draw as the #1 seed in '08. It was brutal. And after a murderous ACC tourney which the Canes won, (I think the ACC had 3 of the top 5, and 5 of the top 10 teams in the nation that year) they were severely challenged in the regional and super, and seemed to simply run out of gas in Omaha.

Hopefully this team will be fresh and ready to go come Saturday night, and get the series off with a beat down of the Gators, and ride through the winner's bracket. Unfortunately the rest of our bracket seems rested as well, but maybe Jim's got a little magic left.

I always wanted to be able to play like Tiger and now I do.

DUBLIN, Ohio — Tiger Woods hit a new low with the highest score of his career Saturday — an 85 at the Memorial.

Woods ended his front nine with back-to-back double bogeys. Needing a par to avoid the worst score of his career, he hooked his tee shot into the water, flubbed two chips and ended with a quadruple-bogey 8.

Even I can shoot 85 on a REALLY good day.

When you are as physically talented as he is there is no way your mental aspect can get in the way of your game THAT much. He might shoot a 79 once in a while but as a pro when you break 80 and get to 85 then something physically is seriously wrong.

When you are as physically talented as he is there is no way your mental aspect can get in the way of your game THAT much. He might shoot a 79 once in a while but as a pro when you break 80 and get to 85 then something physically is seriously wrong.

Seems that way doesn't it. He had bad knee problems, but in golf, your back can be the real betrayer. Anybody that's ever picked up a golf club knows just how important your back and spine are in the process of a swing, and how much tension and stretching and manipulation your back is put under. Possibly his mental state might be involved, but a worse than admitted physical issue seems to be the most likely culprit, doesn't it?

Great to see baseball guys doing well....a lot of our teams have done well guys and ladies. Great to see.

Tiger is hurt much worse than known....knee back spine have let him down. Great golfer sad to see him being average. I think Jack's record stands Tiger is so unique as was Nickalaus...nobody will get close for a long time.

Nice article in 24/7....reality is that many of the greats listed I mean all timers....were Butch guys. Coker may get some credit but hell most of us could have coached them ....by standing out of the way! They coached themselves! Talent level still good....but way down under Onion and AlPa nowhere near what BD recruited. UM will always get good players, and AlPa has some nice stuff....on the horizion.....key is this year. Hope we can win....have bounceback year....keep classes intact....then we turn corner start getting the greats and return to glory....could happen sure hope it does.

Bron is on a record-setting Finals pace right now. They can't stop him. Question is, can Curry keep struggling or did he find his shot in the 4th last night?

Either way, I'm shocked Cavs won without Kyrie and Love. Shocked.

Well, I got my wish. TINY Cal. St.-Fullerton is going to another CWS after shocking mighty Louisville. And, that means Kevin ' Dances with Wolf's ' Costner will be in downtown Omaha.

Oh. One more thing. Miami, Florida's game with the Gators will be a NATIONAL PRIME TIME affaire on ESPN.

The game is set for Saturday at 8:00 PM EST vis-à-vis ESPN.

And no matter if the Hurricanes win or lose their next game will be on Monday. That game will be televised on ESPN-2.

If memory serves me well. The loser of the Canes vs. Gators game will play a Monday AFTERNOON affair. And the winner of said game will play on Monday NIGHT.

First. I wasn't on the band wagon to CHIT-CAN Good Ol' Boy Jimbo, but I did suggest he RETIRE and spend more time with his grandchildren and what not. And that suggestion was based on Miami not being to a CWS in SIX SEASONS!

And if U have any inkling about Miami, Florida baseball. Then you would have known, that the Hurricanes NEVER have had that long of a DRY SPELL, since their first ever CWS appearance back in the days of Studio 54 ( '74 ). LOL

So SIX continuous seasons of NO CWS cameo appearances WAS a logical reason for the Morris distractors desire to see a new manager wearing the Orange, Green and White.

Nevertheless, that's all moot now!!!!

P.S. Florida will be the ' ADOPTED ' home team and will have the support of approximately 20,000 HAYSEEDS up in Omaha.
