Miami Hurricanes football adding black and green jerseys for 2017

I have confidence that, under Richt, the jersey will NOT suck at all. They will probably be our best looking alternates in YEARS.

Did you tell them to turn off the tv for defense? Good time to take medication, drink beer, etc.

Good addition, Dude. He likes lots of beer so will have lots of drinking opportunities. A can for every td given up could make for a good game.

Hey, look who's Stumblin' In.

Posted by: nemo2002 | July 06, 2017 at 12:03 PM

You're a die-hard Hurricane fan. They hire Al Golden. You think it's an awful choiuce. Now, what do you do? Do you still rooot for them becaus, after all, it's still the Canes? Or do put your passion on hold till they come to their senses?

Adolescent me had the same problem with Suzi Quatro when Stumblin' In came out. I loved the rocking and bass playing Suzi of Can the Can and 48 Crash. Then she teams up with Smokie's Chris Norman. Anti-Rock.

Now, decade's later, I have to admit it's a pretty good song. And Al Golden is history. Life is good.

BigWindyCane1

Per Matt Porter of PBP:

One betting outlet thinks the Hurricanes are a nine-win team.

Taking an early glance at the schedule, it seems reasonable to take the over.

Miami’s over-under of nine wins seems one too low, even without a sure thing at quarterback. UM’s defense should be good enough to keep them in games while an offense with plenty of skill comes together. It may not be enough in Week 3 at Florida State, but that’s far and away the biggest hurdle on the Canes’ schedule.

Two months before the season, I would take my chances with the Hurricanes in tight games with Notre Dame (home), Virginia Tech (home), Pittsburgh (away), and expect them to handle Syracuse (home), Duke (road), North Carolina (road), Toledo (home), Arkansas State (road), Georgia Tech (home) and Virginia (home) a little more easily.

That would make Miami a 10-game winner for the first time since 2003, when it was still in the Big East (and two years removed from a national championship).

Speaking of odds, VegasInsider lists no line for Miami’s opener against Bethune-Cookman (12:30 p.m. Sept. 2, ACC regional networks). However, dozens of more competitive Week 1 matchups are projected.

In January, the Hurricanes were given 66-to-1 odds to win the national title and are the Vegas favorite to win the ACC Coastal Division. They will likely be the Coastal choice when the media convenes in Charlotte next Thursday for the ACC Kickoff.

UM, which ended last year ranked No. 20, came in at No. 23 in Athlon Sports’ preseason poll, and No. 19 in both the Sporting News and Fox Sports polls.

One thing to note, which may be coincidental: Miami has exceeded its early projection in the last two years.

Last year’s June regular-season over-under was 6.5 wins. The Hurricanes won eight games in the regular season and finished 9-4. In 2015, they took 5.5 wins and turned it into an eight-win regular season, and an 8-5 record. In 2014, Miami’s preseason over-under was 7.5 wins. They went under — under that, and under .500 (6-7).

What say you about 2017?

The Dude

I can see us losing 3 regular season games and losing in a bowl. Just ballparking it, 25% chance I'd say. 70% we win 10 games bowl included & 5% chance we win 11 or more.

Go Canes!

It's all going to come down to Praying for Perry.

****************************************

And be ready to watch corners play 6 yards off the LOS on 3rd and 2

BigWindyCane1

I like Matt Porter's predictions on the Canes wins total and Coastal Division Championship. From listening to CMR's speeches and interviews, I also think CMR believes the Canes will have a great season, and at least win the Coastal. Many good coaches' programs make a huge leap in the second year. Players are familiar with the system and what needs to get done.

Players will ride the momentum of a very strong 5-0 finish last season (perhaps the most impressive win streak at UM in over a decade) against 4 quality ACC opponents and a ranked West Virginia team. The Canes averaged 37 points and gave up 18 points a game during that stretch.

The Canes should also improve as the season moves along. Obviously, the big unknown is the QB. Although you can see that the Canes have talent at the QB position, you never really know what kind of QB you have until they put on pads and start playing. CMR is clear that he wants a dual threat QB, and all of the QBs on the roster right now can tuck the ball and run. Perry is probably the most talented, and he does have a whip for an arm. Perry is also allusive and seems to have good instincts for big plays. But as a freshmen, mistakes and turnovers are often and issue when they step in against good competition. I think there is enough talent on offense to help Perry or any other QB who starts this season.

The defense will be nasty. I think they will be even better. The DTs might go early to the NFL this year, and the DEs could lead the conference is sacks. I expect Thomas to take an extraordinary leap this year, and Jackson will also. The tow-deep LBs will all improve dramatically from their freshmen and sophomore seasons, as I see a few future NFL players in that LB rotation. The surprise will be the CBs, as I expect some talented playmakers who could lead the ACC in INTs. Jaquan Johnson will be that leader on defense, and will be an improvement from the two very good Canes safeties last season. I am confident that this will be a top ten defense, but I also expect that they will generate more turnovers because they will play faster and smarter. This is the best defense since Vilma, Wilfork and Rolle were Canes.

Terrance Sullivan

Watch the turnovers and that will tell you the tale of our season. That and line play on both sides of scrimmage. Let me break it down in 2014 we the Offense turned the ball over 27 times we went 6-7. In 2015 the Offense turned the ball over 17 times we went 8-5, In 2016 the Offense turned the ball over 10 times we went 9-4. Protect the Football.

Go Canes!

Alabama-FSU opener is officially a sell out. Tide is 7.5 point favorite according to @LVSuperBook

Does FSU playing Bama early help us or hurt us? I can see the arguement both ways.

Canes alum and Phoenix Sun second round pick Devon Reed scored 17 points in an 89-85 win over the Sacramento Kings in his first Summer League game in Las Vegas.

CGNC

Hi peeps! VA good to see you around on the blog. Looking forward to meeting you at the Notre Dame game.

Had a nice conversation with Ahmon Richards parents in Home Depot today. There was a man standing behind me with a Canes shirt so I told him I liked it, and he said his son plays for the Canes. I asked who and he told me. He seemed surprised I knew about Ahmon and I said "everyone knows about Ahmon". They are very happy that he chose Miami and they said that he is very happy at Miami. They also feel, like we do, that FSU should be our only loss. His mother cannot wait for the season to start LOL

There ya have it. Really nice people.

The Dude

Posted by: CGNC | July 09, 2017 at 04:49 PM

Very cool. FSU is our only loss on paper, but so much can change over the course of a season and many things can be beyond our control, especially for a team like ours which isnt yet a finished product.

The Dude

I read an article the other day, maybe the link was here? It was about how Perry is already impressing his team with his ability and that he's winning them over. Now the odds arent good I think, but if this kid is a day 1 problem for other defenses, we could be in for something sweet. I hope Richt, Perry and the entire team has 2016's FSU v. Louisville memorized.

The Dude

Speaking of Louisville, I think most would agree they had a great season last year finishing 7-1 in conference, but lets not forget they finished 9-4 overall. It was a big season for them crushing FSU & playing Clemson close, but 1 crazy night against the Kentucky Wildcats cost them a 10 win season. That's just college football.

Terrance Sullivan

Or laying a egg against LSU in the Citrus Bowl lol.

Terrance Sullivan

We should of had a 10 win season if we didn't lay an egg against a 4-8 Notre Dame team.

The Dude

^^^ My point exactly TS. Damn that ND loss still chaps my ass. Should have beaten those guys.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir The Dude. We would of been 10-3 and would have finished the season in the Top 12 instead of finishing 20th.

Wrong again SOUP, it was the shitty QB play of the gold-hen girl loser for life against all the primary rivals dude at QB getting outplayed by a future high round NFL draft pick at the start and at the end of the game that let that under .500 season winning percentage opponent loss on the record of all involved.

Luckily that particular gane choker is gone and back to palling around with the loser who offered a wasted scholarship spot to him in the first place, so now there's a small chance of actually holding onto leads once they're on the board in crunch time.

But by all means, show the point in the game that the offensive coordinator or the head coach's gameplan cost his team the win by sharing the timestamp for the exact moment with the rest of us to know what you're trying to reference. Please, continue.

2. OK, OK, I get this part. QB was flawed.

3. You missed my point in general which surprises me because your comprehension level is very high in most cases (all alcohol aside). I was referring to a general frame of mind of the coach and the team and attitude and approach to winning and losing. I will gladly take Catholics vs Convicts and Jimmy Johnson vs Lou Holtz ANY DAY over Mark Richt's peace and prayer tour.

Richt is a class act...so the nice guy tag is going to attach itself. ..
However, the ass chewing he gave the team vs WVU...caught on camera with some "4 letter words"..was exactly what he can/should do.

Hmmm...instead think I just contradicted my own post.

He was just as nice the second half of the season when we were throttling everyone.

I'll forgive the guy for needed half of his first season to shake the rust off the his play calling and getting the offense going. Especially when he'd just hired a new staff and the defense, special teams, recruiting, facilities upgrade and respect for what a offfer from the U really means was already shored up.

Guess when you reel off 5 straight, win your bowl game by blowout, have the number one recruiting class and S Fla basically locked down, your state of the art practice facility under construction, a preseason Too 20 ranking and a coaching staff anyone would envy, you've got to find something to whine about.

OUR obesity rate is high BECAUSE we know how to cook WELL (or cook good food ... good is an adjective, not an adverb. ) and we are not all doped up ON cocaine like MIAMIANS ARE

Nonetheless, due to the number of mistake-free words, you must be a rare LSU grad. And as proud as you are of your high BMI as opposed to your IQ, I must add obesity is associated with a range of mental illnesses, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. Thus, your posts.

Posted by: Coach O eat U for breakfest | July 11, 2017 at 04:32 PM

And that, Swamp-Thing is why your team has never, ever left the List. It's a list that has ebbed and flowed over the years.

Syracuse was on it, for the 13-66 loss in 1998. They were defeated, and eventually the defeats became so profound that they never recovered. Their program spiraled into meaningless, and is now a bottom feeder.

Texas was on it, for the foolish comments made by "The Sheriff". One Cotton Bowl loss later, and the Longhorns were sent into a decade of irrelevancy.

Washington was there too. They gave Miami their one loss in 2000. The deserved punishment was then delivered the following year, and they too sustained a decade of futility in the aftermath.

These defeats were so crushing, so horrific that they altered the trajection of the offending program. So now we turn to your school. Yes, it too is on this special list. And as you sit in your tree stump house, with Donkey braying on about waffles, think long and hard about what is coming.

Justice.

Retribution.

A loss that will make you wish that LSU had been given mere sanctions. Sanctions can be overcome. We've done so repeatedly, and with ease. But an embarrassing, humiliating, soul-crushing loss where you question the very validity of the football franchise, not so much. This is what is coming. The Tigers are on this List of Woe. The countdown is underway. And when it is over, in the years afterwards as LSU spirals down to 3 or 4 wins a year, when they become the Kansas of the SEC, when they struggle to sign 3 star players even with the enhanced recruiting, just sit back in your onion-skin easy chair and ask yourself.

Was the Peach Bowl worth it?

BigWindyCane1

The Canes men basketball team is a legitimate top ten team. This is the best team coach L has ever had, including the teams with Larkin and Angel. These new players are legitimate, and the returning players will be among the best in the ACC. This team has a few future NBA players.

TonyCane

Ten years of irrelavancy? Aren't y'all on like 15 years?

Posted by: Coach O eat U for breakfest | July 11, 2017 at 10:11 PM

The spells of mediocrity experienced in the most recent years are nothing compared to what is coming to your beloved school of moonshine. Mediocrity is defined by some as six to eight wins seasons. At Miami, to be honest, mediocrity is not winning a national championship.

For LSU, irrelevancy is best defined when your team fails to win a single game. Because the balance of power has so shifted away from your school. That Louisiana Tech can not only compete with you, but eventually dominate you. Eventually, as the decades pass by your program will be on the chopping block as the Tigers look to eliminate red-line items. Oh, football was still be played at Tiger Stadium. But it will be futbol, as LSU pivots away from a sport that it can no longer compete at even the most hapless of levels and instead divests its energies into "The Beautiful Game".

So Swamp-Thing, enjoy you college football. Ramble on with Donkey. Court Fionna. Avoid Farquaad. Look for Les Miles. Because in 2018, LSU's name will be crossed off The List of Woe.

TonyCane

Maybe not anymore. Damn.

Reynolds: Canes basketball freshman Lonnie Walker has a torn meniscus in his right knee and will get surgery this week, the school announces.

Posted by: Go Canes! | July 11, 2017 at 10:11 PM

Worst case scenario - he comes back in January. On the positive side he won't have enough of a playing sample to immediately go pro next summer.

BigWindyCane1

Lonnie Walker is definitely an important piece. But the Canes have other capable players who have the talent and ability to step up while Walker is out. It would be great if Walker can return by January, just in time for the tough ACC schedule

Go Canes!

Walker would need a more miraculous recovery than Ryan Williams supposedly had to be playing top ACC caliber basketball by the new year.

Going to be tough, but we'll see.

CaneRock

Williams tore His ACL, Walker tore His meniscus, 2 totally different injuries & recovery times. A meniscus only takes 6 weeks, so yeah, Walker will be ready for ACC play.

Go Canes!

I was just messing with some of the people on here CR.

Hopefully he'll be back.

TonyCane

I think with a meniscus injury the recovery time varies. If you elect to repair and heal, it takes up to six months (Russell Westbrook). If you elect to have it removed (D Wade) it is only six weeks. The latter has long term degenerative effects.

Terrance Sullivan

Let it repair and heal. Bring him back in February.

Go Canes!

Fair to the Canes imo:

BigWindyCane1

Per Palm Beach Post: Winston, the former Florida State and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, trained with N’Kosi Perry in Tampa before Perry enrolled at UM. The two, who met through a mutual friend, remain in contact.

When Miami opens fall practice Aug. 1, Perry, a four-star recruit from Ocala, should be one of the top contenders to take over the vacant starting quarterback position. Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, has a favorite horse in the race.

“N’Kosi’s good,” Winston said. “He’s going to be really good.”

What makes him think that?

“I worked with him,” replied Winston, with the confidence of a former No. 1 overall pick and NFL starting quarterback.

What’s the best piece of advice Winston offered?

“Play his game,” he said.

He’s happy to help Perry, even if his young pal is a Hurricane now.

“I wish I could have got somebody to come back and work with me,” he said.

Per Matt Porter of the Palm Beach Post:

Winston, the former Florida State and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback, trained with N’Kosi Perry in Tampa before Perry enrolled at UM. The two, who met through a mutual friend, remain in contact.

When Miami opens fall practice Aug. 1, Perry, a four-star recruit from Ocala, should be one of the top contenders to take over the vacant starting quarterback position. Winston, the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, has a favorite horse in the race.

“N’Kosi’s good,” Winston said. “He’s going to be really good.”

What makes him think that?

“I worked with him,” replied Winston, with the confidence of a former No. 1 overall pick and NFL starting quarterback.

What’s the best piece of advice Winston offered?

“Play his game,” he said.

He’s happy to help Perry, even if his young pal is a Hurricane now.

“I wish I could have got somebody to come back and work with me,” he said.
