Cat Five, doesn't matter who competes for the job, Travis will be the man. That was his job all season, every game and with teams scheming just to stop him. Got to the point some teams stop kicking to him.

Yeah, we are not out of it yet, but I would like to see us hit a couple of three's. I went to the GT game and had a good time, but before the game I was bragging to the people I went with about how great Miami is at shooting three's.

Not to throw dirt on anybody, but the WR's were not getting better. Calvin mentioned something about Mosley's claim to fame was teaching WR's how to block. I agreed with him, it was asinine for someone to boast that they can teach WR's how to block. Who the phuck cares? Teach them: how get off the line, how to catch the ball, use their bodies to shield the db, get out of breaks, why they should not round off routes, use their hands, shoulders and elbows to get separation, read coverage, etc.

I hope Shannon hires coaches that really want to teach the players how to play this game and also how to practice correctly. Not just a doing a bunch drills, but doing things with a purpose.

I hope he also hires a QB coach, and takes over as DC. At least I feel comfortable that one side of the ball works.

The offense needs to go back to Miami's roots and keep it "Pro Style".. All of that spread sh!t and trickery is high school/ pop warner sh!t. If you have 2-3 really talented players on Offense you run that spread shit, because you want the ball in the most talented players hands.

Damn, airball on the three.

Finally, some threeeeeessss!

I can't watch the game here in Charlotte - they have Wake v. Maryland but the way Miami is playing, kinda glad - hope they continue to turn it around

miamihurricane34

13-24 with 5:35 to play in first

Ugh I think they got off the bus down by 10

mh34 - thought your tv feed might have less delay than mine, but I was behind with my Tivo. I'm caught up now.

2nd half should be a different story.

Miami is playing with good energy, but can't get many good looks at the basket. Halftime adjustments should change the game to an inside out approach, open up the outside shot. King and Collins need to become more of an inside threat.

Defense needs to pressure, which might lead to some easy buckets. We've had no easy baskets!

miamihurricane34

17-28 3:12, Mcclinton is 1-7

miamihurricane34

Yeah I have Comcast in Miami, and it actually has a really bad delay.
I agree busy they have played with a lot of energy, they justw need their shots to drop. Even one of Jimmy's dunks bounced out.
34-20 1:15 left

busy_cane

solar, where are you?

we need someone to cheer us up!

22-36 at the half, it is not insurmountable

86Cane

That drives me to drink even more than what I already do.

U and me both!

busy_cane

First half comes to an end. It was forgetable. Unfortunately, when we open up the second half down by 14 points, we'll be reminded about how poorly we shot the ball.

The team doesn't look sluggish... they just have had difficulty finding an offensive rhythm, and that has translated into BC shooting the ball very well (> 50%).

Haith preaches that solid defense leads to offensive success. Miami's defensive pressure needs to keep the opponnent's shot % near 40 for the team to be successful. Otherwise, we don't have the offensive weapons to get into a running match.

I expect us to come out of the halftime and hit a few threes and get the deficit into single digits. If we relax, we are done.

In the second half, it has to be pressure, pressure, pressure.

GO CANES!

86Cane

Let's go see what Manny is blogging LIVE from the game and post over there...

busy_cane

Great thought 86.

Manny always puts great stuff up during the game.

In other news, Romney wins Michigan.

RealCanesFan

Mosley gone damn who is going to be next. Randy is not playing...Cant say I blame him the rec. have sucked as of late.

Go Canes!!!!! need to come out strong in the 2nd against BC

miamihurricane34

I think we are toast, we pretty much need to start hitting three's, down 22-41 16:45

RealCanesFan

Yeah it isn't looking good. We are shooting the ball horribly and BC just looks on another level tonight.

RealCanesFan

Oh well cant win them all. Hopefully we can rebound stronger from this loss.

solarcane

Sorry I was watching espnu
Heritage and pace
kenny boynton # 8 in the country heading to Duke in 2 years, he would beat BC all by himself

peace

solarcane

what is this 0 for 13 in a row vs BC?
peace

86Cane

I went over to Manny's place but the Canes are stinking it up and they are out of beer over there.

This dead period stinks when the Canes BB team can't hold up it's end of the bargain. Faith in Haith? Let's hope so...

busy_cane

that's correct. it was the anti-football curse. they're football team couldn't beat us and we couldn't beat their basketball team. that changed this year on the gridiron, i hoped it would change this year on the court. we'll have another chance, but I don't think it will happen tonight.

busy_cane

Open up the taps, soup, 'cause it is going to be a long 12:00 minutes.

solarcane

you guys should watch the last quarter of
heritage/ pace( ESPNU) Kenny Boyton has the highest scoring average in Florida 35 per game.

Pace is killing his team but he is fun to watch
peace

86Cane

Solar...did you get my email?

Manny's working the game, there just isn't much positive to report.

Shannon is getting things right in CG. Next week we hear the final facts about the EEs. Then on 2/6 we have national signing day.

Then more Canes ACC basketball and next the baseball season starts.

miamihurricane34

Hey we pull back to within 20!

busy_cane

Home court really plays an advantage when Miami has to go to Boston in January.

miamihurricane34

Back to back three's

busy_cane

Who was that kid who went to UM who led Florida in scoring? Ochiel Swaby? Does that name ring a bell with anyone?

vince

Swaby did not play at UM. I think he played at USF

busy_cane

didn't he start at UM and end up at USF?

busy_cane

38 ppg his senior year in HS.

Played for UM and USF, in the NBA (briefly) and overseas.

Today, he is the girls basketball coach at Miami Country Day School.
