Boom Baby!

Thanks for sharing this great news, Soup!

Go Canes!!

FSU football....dead last.

This will be used for negative recruiting.

“You really want to go there? All they care about is academics. They care about graduation rates. We care about getting you into the NFL. So commit to us, and I guarantee you that you will have to spend no more than 1 hour a semester participating in your Post Modernism in Caillou Cartoon class.”

Terrance Sullivan

LOL and all Miami has to show and say is we are the only program to have a 10 game winning streak in Football, Basketball, and Baseball. So Kill That Noise!

Old Skool

Cities in the country that produce the most four- or five-star prospects since 2002.

That's according to a little number-crunching from Rivals' Mike Farrell.

Miami (119), Los Angeles (63), Houston (60) and Jacksonville (60). Tampa (48) .

Go Canes!!

That can't be right can it?

There's no way the greater Ft. Lauderdale area is lower than Jacksonville and Tampa?

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Go Canes! Mike Farrell is talking outta of his Arse. Hell Fort Lauderdale(Broward County) has nearly as many as Miami(Dade County). I guess Mike Farrell one of these 5 * A**clowns that try to put Fort Lauderle(Broward County) and West Palm Beach(Palm Beach County) all under Miami literally the dumbest thing ever lol. This fool probably have Anaheim(Orange County) looped in to Los Angeles(Los Angeles County) Of course what do you expect from idiots that say where the Giants and Jets play is in New York but the Stadium and their Facilities are in New Jersey. That's definitely real Fake News! Either that or they have a IQ lower than Salad Dressing and should have gotten F's in Geography Class!

Winner of clemson vs. U tonight moves on to face the FSU vs. NC St. winner in the ACC semi on Saturday 5pm. If it's Clemson, I'm not interested.

FWIW, FSU didn't have a better ACC record than the U. They beat the out of conference opponents routinely, something the U used to do easily. I hate losing to all of the other FL schools.

Game is getting ready to begin on FSN. U pitching better be ready after the Clemson 21-4 win over NDU.

JCane

Ugly top of 1st for the visiting U. Leadoff walk wasted with 2 Ks and caught stealing.

Terrance Sullivan

Yesssss Yesssss Yesssss JCANE!

JCane

Still at Os in the top of the 2nd.

JCane

That kind of talk makes me a little nervous, TS!

Canes get a two out walk before another K to end the top of the 2nd. Lots of Tiger hitters bat over 300 or have double digit HRs. The U, not so much.

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Brotha. Well at least we didn't tank and have a losing season. Not what we hoped for but it is what it is.

JCane

Middle 4th, tied at 1, with the U having a tie not going to their runner for their 3rd out and costing them a run as a result. At least we got a few hits finally and the tying run.

Terrance Sullivan

Ugh!

JCane

Solo shot gave CU the 2-1 lead. Now bottom 6th with hammond just brought in to pitch after a generally nice outing by our starter. Problem is he has 2 runners on ....single to left, now 3-1, with 2 down.

JCane

Ugh now. With 2 outstanding, Clemson leads up with another single for a run, then a 3 run shot for a 7-1 lead before the U finally gets the 3rd out and now heads to the 7th hoping for some O and a minor miracle. Leadoff single...

That line, was outstanding, but overall the actor was terrible imo.

JCane

Leave 2 runners on, to the bottom of the 7th. Not looking good and no real interest here in U baseball anyway, so checking out. Night all..

Terrance Sullivan

JCANE good night Brotha only a handful of die hards on here Brotha. Go Canes!

86Cane

Whatever...

86Cane

Love Canes baseball but can't hang on every inning.

Terrance Sullivan

86 as we have noted here before it's probably 10 of us max that love Canes Baseball the rest not so much but it is what it is.

Terrance Sullivan

3 Thank U for a great 25 year Ride. The Season didn't go as we liked but thanks Fellas for fighting to the end and never giving up. Go Canes!

Harry Miller

Terrance, I love Canes baseball. Just can't make it to any games being 3,091.5 miles away. I am lucky enough getting my information from you and a few others covering Canes baseball.
I want to thank you, soup and the others for the coverage.

Terrance Sullivan

Harry Miller U are welcome Brotha. Us Die Hards do our best!

raizecane

Baseball is irrelevant until it gets relevant again (LOL)

I wonder if Farrell is counting Broward and Palm Beach incorrectly, or including some of those recruits in the Miami-Dade numbers? Miami-Dade does produce a lot of 4-5 stars, but so does Broward and Palm Beach.

IMO, the large numbers also demonstrate that there are enough recruits in South Florida to stack FBS multiple teams with talent, and given that some South Florida three star recruits will end up outperforming 4-5 stars in college, South Florida is the most important recruiting hotbed for the Canes.

The Canes have also made inroads in North and Central Florida. With all the new upgrades to the Canes facilities and with success on the field, there are no excuses for the Canes not to be stacked.

BigWindyCane1

The Canes football team has an average preseason ranking of No. 8 in the country right now, and the Canes are ranked higher than all of their opponents. The Canes should also be favored in all of their games if they play up to their potential.

Miami opens at LSU, and although LSU has a lot of talent, the Canes should take care of business against LSU in the season opener. This should lead us to victories over the Savanah States and Toledos of the world until the Canes face FSU, which will likely be a matchup of top 10-12 teams. FSU is always very talented, and will likely be the most talented team that UM will see in the regular season, but the Canes get FSU at home to close out the first half of the schedule.

If the Canes win at home against FSU, then the second half the schedule begins and that second half of the schedule looks tougher than the first half. The Canes will still be favored in all those games if they take care of business like they should.

Four of Miami's final six games of the regular season are on the road. Three of those road games--Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech.

I know the OL had their issues in the spring, but that is not unusual, and IMO, the OL will play much better in the fall, and the running game should be going will by the FSU game. The Canes will need more consistent QB play this season. No more missing open receivers. That is not acceptable in ACC-level football - period.

If Richards is healthy, he can eliminate a lot of QB mistakes, but the QB must hit on 60%+ of his passes this season - no excuses. Interceptions should be 7 or less. Otherwise, there will be a QB carousel this season until CMR finds his QB.

IMO, road games against Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech the second half of the season could be dangerous, but also could define the Canes. I expect domination in most of these games if the Canes are a true top 10 team.

This should be a great season.

Terrance Sullivan

Yesssss Yesssss Yesssss Big Windy Cane!

1. The Canes will need more consistent QB play this season.

2. IMO, road games against Boston College, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech the second half of the season could be dangerous, but also could define the Canes.

2. The BC game scares me most. Good defense.

Go Canes!!

GT does'nt scare me. CMR has beaten them like a drum over his entire career.

Agree BC will be a very tough game. Same with FSU at home and opening day against LSU.

But that VT game, on the road, at night, is going to be the toughest game of the year by far imo.

thirstybuzzardcane

VT lost A LOT of players on defense, and we shredded them last year. Hopefully, we can jump out early and quiet their stadium!

86Cane

For some reason VT never scares me. They are predictable and we always get hyped up for them.

BC is the sleeper game like Pitt last year where we could fall asleep at the wheel and slip up. Not saying we will just that it seems like a trap game.

Terrance Sullivan

FSU and VT are our two biggest rivals annually so our Canes stay hyped for those two games. We will also be hyped for LSU Game this year. Florida Next Year. but for this year I agree with 86 and Go Canes! BC and Pitt are the scary games. I will throw in UNC as well. The Games have been incredibly close. Go Canes! 100 days until kickoff.

Go Canes!!

VT at home at night is a different animal. What we felt at Hard Rock last season is the kind of atmosphere they’ll enjoy when we face them.

They have a fine young QB and a very good head coach.

Imo that will be our toughest game next season.

His Royal Dudeness

Im just looking for 1-0 right now and ending the 3 game skid, getting our groove back.

Go Canes!!

Then there’s this:

Miami converted just 25.2% of its 3rd down pass attempts last year vs FBS opponents — 60th out of 65 Power 5 offenses.

Go Canes!!

3rd and long with a spotty QB, 3rd and short with a suspect OL.

Once again nobody agrees with U?

I will bet U $100 right now we beat them.

Go Canes!!

Only IF he drops weight, improves his strength and footwork, and gains better balance as a result of BOTH. Being big and fat is no way to go through life. Has anyone ever heard that he is a weight room madman? A film room fixture? Yeah, I didn't think so.

Herbieibis

Playing at Va. Tech has been somewhat of a house of horrors for us over VA the years.A few wins here and their but we usually suck when we play their.

Love Canes baseball but they can't be hit and this has been 2 straight years of a few games over 500. No excuse with all the talent in their backyard to be losing over 25 games

His Royal Dudeness

NBA is so rigged.
