86 don't know if the Whitney Bank Club is anything like the one for the Florida Panthers. The food and drink was nice, but what amazed me was the masseuse and the aromatherapist... at a HOCKEY GAME!

Zilla, Timmy...who gets the most yards this year? #28, #4, #2, #5, #3, #47, #22?

JCane

Just back from a week off-line completely. It was nice, but I missed getting my CaneSpace fixes. Now I had to do some reading homework to catch up.... I liked seeing a Canes baseball article along with the discussion about USF. I'm still hoping to get those tix, 86, but I'm told I have to check in during the week this week to potentially get more info. I'll keep you updated, although you probably know more than I do.

Interesting to see two new verbals this past week, both at RB and neither from 305-561. I know Hagens is a fb (although articles list him from as low as 5'11' and 220 to as high as 6'1" and 225), but with all of the talent in 305 and 954 to see Hall as the first rb verballing is a surprise (well, it isn't, but it would have been if I'd given my guesses 6 months ago). I'd be surprised to see more than one rb extra sign at this point, and you'd have to wonder what Gore is waiting for if he wants in and if the U really wants him (although there is always more going on then we, well some of us anyway, know). I know a few of the other local likely bigtime rbs clearly aren't high on da U for a variety of reasons.

Jacory and The Jets... yea that has a clumsy and yet unrelated quality to it, go for it.lol

LOL. Somehow I missed that Benji and the Jets moniker. Shame on me. haha

86Cane

JCane...it's all good 'round here. When you go away, U can always come back to The Space. We are here and waiting!

Canez1...Ignore my other comments on the QB. My info turns out to be on a CB from the Central Florida area. We had a mis-communication.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

As far the runningback discussion of miller, james and bb, the thing about bryce brown is simple to me, his 1st year is goign to be hell because for 1, his headcoach has made his team a target, #2, teams will make them prove they can pass the ball and right now nobody respects their qb's or receivers so the sec teams are going to play them for the run and key in on whoever is running the ball their, which is why bryce will have to be the real deal in order to make nosie out their, as oppose to our team, you can't just key in on any offensive player except jacory, but unlike dorsey, jacory can move and throw on the run so if the pass rush is to strong, watch out, and the funny thing is, coming out of highschool they kept labeling jacory as a dual threat qb, which in away they're correct, but he's a passer first that can run when he needs to.

Coming into this year, oppossing defensive coordinators understand what they're up against, and know that if they don't have a strong pass rush jacory will pick you apart and trying to figure out which receiver to double team, good luck, especially, which i'm not counting on, but if epps is healthy, the whole playbook will be unleashed. We got everything we need to be a succesful offensive football team, the stars have been aligning right since 2007.

1st shannon takes over UM at the perfect time, 2nd the guys coming out of highschool that year in DADE COUNTY was ridiculous, than to get them all pretty much on the same team, 3rd, another strong recruiting class coming again with 2 coordinators being available at the right time in lovett and whipple. jacory does what he has to do, marve transfers, the stage is set, as much as i respected marve's game, i felt a lil bad for him because all along i knew jacory would eventually get the starting job and apparently he and his family knew it too.

Now all that's left for this team to do is stay healthy and it's on.

>>>>>

Calvin, I don't think you've ever hit the nail on the head as well as in the above. Plus you flexed those rhyming muscles in the paragraph before. haha.

If Epps is and stays healthy and even if Graham, Gordon and even Tavaris can contribute in situations, it's lights out if the OL can just be solid, which they should be able to do. The toughest D we'll play will be OU, and even then, mentally they better be ready.

That '08 class was the key, as Shannon himself said, the foundation, esp. when he noted that he played against a lot of the kids parents in high school. That's definitely the stars aligning.

Plus, the leadership in that class, as Canez1 said, the IT factor, was simply incredible. It reminds me of the 1986, and the 2000-2001 teams and the classes that built them.

Yo, what's the word on TEs in this class?? Anyone?? We should bring in about two or three right??

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

JCane, it seems like those RBs in SoFl don't want to compete. They know what Miller has and they know he might have to RS, and then Berry, James and Chambers are bringing it right with Coop and JJ, so with this new kid, whose name I've forgotten, who is clearly a stud, the stakes are even higher.

I won't be surprised if none of the RB come from SoFl this year.

Now if we can just get those twins from GA, the CBs and OL, and few other spots like QB and LB, we'll be ready to rumble for back-to-back-to-back.

cav, i'm going to hold my 3 peat prediciton, but we're loading up with enough talent to get it done, but 1st our take 1 at a time, because i've learned that if you say how many championships someone will win be it over 1, the 1st one doesn't get it's just do. The 1 thing that's a great goal to accomplish though is back to back, something we've never done before, but just seeing shannon and company get their 1st one/championship will be one of the greatest stories in the long line of great stories at UM man.

Also, congratulations goes out to kobe bryant, derek fisher and the rest of the lakers, gasol for sure, odom finally found someone who dissappears more than he does in rashad lewis. Like kobe or not, like karl malone before him, you got to respect their games, and a hard worker always earns my respect. I always defended kobe when people would say he's trying to hard to be like jordan, but i would tell people, while i understand what you're trying to say, hell, if you're going to be a basketball player in the generation after jordan, that's the best player to try and model your game after, i had no problem with that, and when you look at it, kobe's the closet thing to jordan their ever was thus far, just not defensively.

For my money though, i'd take a healthy dwayne wade over kobe, and i'm not being biased because wade plays for Miami, but he's another one where the stars aligned up right, i mean seriously, he was destined to be in Miami, i can't remember meeting anybody that i know of with the name wade, but the fact that this player comes to Miami, where the County is named DADE, and after dwayned led the heat to the championship people started calling it wade County, come on, that's destiny.
With wade elevating his defense this year, that's the only reason i'm confident in saying i'd take a healthy dwayne over kobe, i never like dwayned cry baby stuff and his lack of hustle on defense, but now that he knows he has to be that guy to lead his team, you saw him go to the next level this year.

To me, barkley will be the all time best 6"4 player to ever play the game, because he had to do it on the inside, but a focused and healthy wade, you won't find another player better, they keep talking about lebron james being the best or second best player in the league, if dwayne wade was on that cleveland team this year, they would have beaten orlando because unlike lebron who has 2 major flaws in his game, jumpers and clutch free throws, it's not a gimmick that wade has won a championship 1st over james and melo. After the lakers won the championship tonight, the one thing i thought about was how would the heat look now with odom, butler and wade, i was one of the only people i know who didn't want shaq, although it worked out for 1 championship, that championship had more to do with wade and alonzo mourning defense, shaq is lazy.

Meanwhile, back to football, it's a great time to make soldinger a graduate assistant. Also, speaking of a qb recruits, i'm just thinking, i wonder how well does whipple evaluate talent, or does he have more confidence in his ability to coach a qb up more so than he evaluates the talent of the kid, i'm just wondering does shannon let whipple make that call on the next qb recruit, or what. I just don't want a guy here that's garbage and whipple leaves and the next oc has to deal with him. Than again, we got cook in the hole for now as well as highsmith and for real ray ray if need be. Right now i need to remind myself though, as long as shannon and company is here, the qb position won't be a problem because only true competitors will apply.

Which begs the question, some people say a qb is the leader of the team, so if that's true, and you're qb doesn't have to compete to earn his spot, how in the hell are you ever going to have a competitive team. Apparently this affirmation never was told to someone with the 1 qb recruit a year philosophy.

Matter of fact, the way the guys are working this year when nobody's watching, and the fire they feel inside that only burns inside the hearts of champions, this is the only song i can think of that's going to help represent the team this year WE BALLIN BOYZ!

.Top 5... College Football's 5 Greatest First-Year Players of the Past 50 Year.

By Baby Tate...Bleacher Report.

A common occurrence among fans and pundits throughout the country is a sincere debate concerning the greatest college football players in history.

In local taverns, at a family get together, shuckin' and jivin' sessions on the street, or wherever a difference of opinion can be suggested, someone has an idea of just who should be on that list.

But suppose we qualify such an argumentative list by imposing three strict rules.

1– Let us modify the search to include only the past 50 years.

2- Wrap that around a discussion of only the most outstanding players performing in their first year, either as Freshmen or Sophomores prior to Frosh eligibility in 1972, Junior College transfers in their first year of major college ball, or Redshirt Freshmen.

3- Then, most importantly, add a real kicker to the conversation—let us stipulate that the first year player in question has to be an important member of a National Championship team in his first year.


.........................................


5. Bernie Kosar, Quarterback: Miami
Arguably the most underrated offensive player of the past half century. This is a man that knew how to get it done and did it.

As a 6'5" redshirt freshman in 1983, he led the Hurricanes to the national championship—and not just over any old opponent in any old game.

The Hurricanes defeated a Nebraska squad described at the time as the greatest team in football history. The Cornhuskers scored 624 points and gave up only 186 in winning their first 12 games of the season.

The 31-30 classic won by Miami has been considered "the greatest game ever played."

A toast to the cool and efficient Bernie Kosar.

...........................................

4. Tommy Nobis, Linebacker: Texas

Arguably the most underrated defensive player of the past half century. When offenses stared into the eyes of this legendary player, they knew their time was up.

During his first year of varsity ball in 1963, Nobis led the Longhorns to an undefeated national championship, destroying Heisman Trophy winner Roger Staubach and No. 2-ranked Navy in the Cotton Bowl, 28-6.

It has been mentioned in some corners that Tommy Nobis is the greatest defensive player who has ever played football.


...........................................
3. Ernie Davis, Running Back: Syracuse

The cards of fate were stacked against this great gentleman.

Known as "The Elmira Express," Davis burst upon the scene by leading Syracuse to the national championship in 1959 by hammering Texas in the Cotton Bowl, 23-14.

Two years later he won the Heisman Trophy.

Two years later he lay dead—a victim of leukemia.


..........................................
2. Herschel Walker, Running Back: Georgia At 6-1, 225lbs.

Walker crashed upon the football world of 1980 by leading his Bulldogs to the national championship.

He possessed power and speed, along with that most admired aspect of success—star power.

Despite all of his accomplishments, Walker's most lasting impact may be his breaking of the time-honored tradition of staying all four years in college before opting for the professional game.

More than one observer has quipped that Walker is the man for whom an entire professional football league was created, and he took advantage of his position by leaving Georgia following the 1982 season to play in the new United States Football League with the New Jersey Generals.

.........................................

1. O. J. Simpson, Running Back: Southern California

After scoring 54 touchdowns in two years of Junior College ball in his hometown of San Francisco, the man known as "Orange Juice" transferred to the University of Southern California.

He was like no one the country had ever seen before or since. At 6'2" and 210 pounds, O.J. possessed 9.4 speed in the 100-yard dash and had moves that can't be duplicated by even players of this era.

He immediately took his Trojans to the national championship in 1967 and followed it up a year later by winning the Heisman Trophy.

We are all aware of the tragic turn Simpson's life took, a sad figure that peers out of a jail cell.

However, there was a time when he was the greatest of them all on the football field. It is unfortunate that his personal behavior did not compare to his athletic skill and has caused pain to so many.

.......................................


Wow... Not taking anything away from him... but I don't know if it is fair to include OJ with 2 years of experience under his belt before hitting the bigs... to be rated # 1, he must have been awesome to watch as a Junior.
........................................

As for Herschel Walker... been there and seen that... during his run and it was a mouth dropping experience in watching him chisel his way through run stopping defenses... game, after game, after game... He was train and they knew he was coming but nobody could stop him! From memory, they offered him 15 mil to leave Ga. for the USFL.

College: Won the Heisman Trophy in 1982... consensus All-America from 1980-82... established 11 NCAA records, 16 Southeastern Conference records and 41 University of Georgia records in his three years in Athens...rushed for 5,259 yards in his career, an SEC and Georgia record as well as an NCAA mark for most yards in three seasons...ended his Georgia career with the third most rushing yards in NCAA history...established himself immediately with a freshman season that saw him set NCAA marks for most rushing yards by a freshman (1,616 in 1980), most 200-yard games by a freshman (four), average yards per game by a freshman (146.9), most all-purpose yards by a freshman (1,805) and most rushing touchdowns by a freshman (15)...finished third in Heisman balloting as a freshman...named a first team All-America by seven different organizations and publication...totaled an SEC-record 1,891 yards in his second season as well as a conference mark of 171.9 yards per game...ran for more than 100 yards in 11 games as a sophomore, an NCAA record...set an SEC mark with 120 points and 20 touchdowns in sophomore year...ran for 1,616 yards as a junior, establishing an NCAA mark with three seasons of gaining more than 1,500 yards...also set NCAA records for most carries in three seasons (994) and most all-purpose yards in three seasons (5,749)...also competed for Georgia's track and field team, where he was a two-time All-America selection (outdoor 400-meter relay, indoor 60-yard dash) and a member of the SEC champion 400-meter relay in 1981.

As for our man... BERNIE KOSAR
What do you say about a man who started out the season with a 28/3 loss and then run the table to NC... In perhaps the best National Championship game ever played... Awesome!

Bernie Kosar, Miami's unfreshmanlike freshman quarterback, characterizes the Hurricane offense as "disciplined." He figures it has to be to execute all the gymnastics and high-wire acts that Coach Howard Schnellenberger demands of it. On the other hand, Miami Middle Guard Tony Fitzpatrick, the stubby block of muscle and mouth who's what you might expect to get if you crossed the understander on an Irish tumbling team with a Tazmanian devil, characterizes the Hurricane defense as "loose" and, well, loud. It rags and jaws and talks trash, and pops opposing players with such percussion the Gatorade trembles in the cups along the sidelines. It harasses, it intimidates, it dominates. In other words, says a rival coach who doesn't have to play Miami this year, "It's a joy to watch."

The Hurricanes are the most amazing college football team of 1983, and the amazing Kosar, with his wonderful right arm and his 3.4 GPA—he passes and passes—is as responsible as any individual for that. Kosar keeps outgunning the big guns, as he did in Saturday's shootout with West Virginia's Jeff Hostetler, and Miami's offense keeps rolling ever closer to an Orange Bowl date with Nebraska.

It's the Hurricane defensive unit, however, that's really amazing. Granted the peculiarities of polls, bowl committees and conference tie-ups—not to mention the four hairy weekends left in the season—the Miami defense may be the only one left with a chance to spike No. 1 Nebraska and its prepotent attack. The prerequisites for such an appetizing matchup, of course, are that the Cornhuskers win the Big Eight title and that Miami beat East Carolina and Florida State in its last two games. The Orange Bowl committee has its breath held.

In their mad dash up the rankings, the Hurricanes have won eight consecutive games since opening with a 28-3 loss at Florida. Last week before a howling crowd of 63,881 at the Orange Bowl, Miami brushed aside 11th-ranked West Virginia 20-3 just about as easily as the irrepressible Fitzpatrick says he handles opposing centers: "I flip 'em around like a dishrag." The first 10 times the Mountaineers ran the ball, they netted a grand total of zero yards. Counting six sacks, West Virginia backs wound up with a net two yards on the ground, and Hostetler, who had been averaging 200 yards passing, was held to 166 in 29 attempts. He was benched in the fourth quarter when Coach Don Nehlen decided that "he might get killed out there."

Not to worry too much, Coach. For all the flaring nostrils and airy emissions, Miami's defense is as disciplined as its offense—"like a Rolex watch," says Fitzpatrick. It was as much technique as terror that stopped Hostetler. The Hurricane defense, which ranks second in the nation in fewest yards allowed (241 per game), is tutored by a civilized and quiet man named Tom Olivadotti—Commander O to the troops—who contrives so many deceptive alignments and coverages that beaten rivals frequently can't tell what Miami did, even after seeing the films. Commander O's troops include a few bona fide talents and a bunch of guys who make up for not being great by playing great. Linebacker Jay Brophy, for example, is an All-America candidate who studies films and picks up things. Last week he detected that Hostetler has a tendency to keep both hands on the ball when he's going to drop back to pass, but only one when he's going to hand off. That's the sort of info an active linebacker can make hay with. Brophy had a hand in a game-high 15 tackles.

And, of course, there's Fitzpatrick, who passed up a chance to go to Liberty Baptist in Lynchburg, Va., the only school other than Miami to offer him a scholarship. Until he tore a tendon in his left biceps late in the game, an injury that requires surgery and will knock him out for the year, Fitzpatrick was having the season of a lifetime. Early against the Mountaineers he put Hostetler down with emphasis, and as the two of them got up he says the quarterback asked him,

"What's your first name, Fitzpatrick?"

"Tom."

"I got a feeling I'm gonna see a lot more of you today."

"You can count on it."


After the Mountaineers capped a game-opening 75-yard drive with a short field goal, the Hurricanes retaliated with an icy-cool 81-yard scoring march. In it the remarkably poised Kosar—his concentration is so good that he says he often doesn't realize he has been knocked down on a pass rush until he finds himself getting back up—completed five passes. Four were to Tight End Glenn Dennison, who has hands like tar buckets and sets a school receiving record every time he catches the ball. His last grab on the drive was for 19 yards and the go-ahead-for-good TD.

Miami went up 10-3 in the second quarter on a 36-yard field goal by Jeff Davis and then opened the third quarter with another long drive that led to a Davis kick from 31 yards. The Hurricanes clinched the game with a 90-yard scoring drive that was climaxed by a five-yard pass from Kosar to Running Back Keith Griffin with 13:13 to play. The big number was a 49-yard pass to Wide Receiver Eddie Brown. Kosar reads blitzes and coverages as if they were primers, and against the Mountaineers he completed 19 of 36 throws for 211 yards and had four or five perfect passes dropped.

The Hurricanes have won 23 of 25 games at home under Schnellenberger, who plucked the Miami program out of the ashes five years ago. After Saturday's game, Schnellenberger, who's apparently into analogies these days, told his team, "It's a horse race now, with other horses ahead but struggling and the finish line in sight." He likened the Hurricanes' circumstances to "being two pitches away from victory in the ninth inning." They believe him.

cat5, good post on that game, the funny thing about that game and the last play, when we played ohio st. we were the team to beat of course, we defended the last pass to perfection just the same, but that time, a certain ref got involved.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

University of Miami junior Kyle Bellamy earned his third first team All-America honor of the postseason as Baseball America recognized the closer as the team's relief pitcher on its 16-man first team.

Bellamy, who recently earned first-team All-America honors by both the NCBWA and Rivals.com, is among the national leaders with 16 saves this season. In 46 1/3 innings pitched, the Davie, Fla. native allowed just five earned runs while striking out 63 and holding his opponents to a .147 batting average against him.

In a team-high 30 appearances, Bellamy (3-1, 0.97 ERA) allowed just two extra-base hits and finished a perfect 16-for-16 in save opportunities. His 16 saves are tied for fifth in school history for saves in a single season, with 12 of his 16 saves coming from more than an inning of work.

In addition to his three first team All-America honors thus far, Bellamy has been named one of five finalists for the prestigious NCBWA Stopper of the Year award as well as a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award, the Dick Howser Trophy and the College Baseball Foundation National Pitcher of the Year Awards. He was also named as the closer on the 2009 All-ACC First Team.

On Wednesday, Bellamy was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft by the Chicago White Sox.

Is it me or is Randy really a magnet... Kids and parents alike, love to talk to him. His demeanor is quiet and soft spoken but his words ring out truth and have direct consequences if you disobey him. Going back 2 years ago he told the world, if you want to play for the U, you can, but you'll have to earn it. To a young man fresh out of high school it is a "In-your-face" challenge from a black head coach (1 of 6 in the league) and he's not mixing words, with maybes and ifs. To the young stud, it must be refreshing to hear the truth... Now, in 2009, we are hearing it allot from many coaches, but it was Randy who drew first blood and caught the attention of the many who have since signed up to be a part of the U Dynasty of DOMINANCE


The U...

86,

I appreciate you letting me help people during this recession. I've had some responses from the blog already. Helping people help others is great, ain't it?

You're the best!

CVS, the first two and following seven are definitely within reach but #3 requires a big, big swig of spiked Kool-Aid. haha

Cat 5, great post from Bleacher. Herschel was the Man indeed but I'll take Bo over him any day. I'm a little surprised they had enough sense to put Bernie in there. Good work.

Good afternoon Spacers! If you or anyone you know was laid off (like I was), is financially strapped, or simply wants to earn some extra money, please let me know. I would like to help if I can. You or someone you may know can email me at benguest76@gmail.com.

GO CANES!!!

No problem, just limit your plug to ONCE a day for the next SEVEN days and it's ALL good.

The Truth

I say they BETTER be 2-2 after the 1st 4.

If not - all the people in CG saying things about Randy behind his back won't be just saying it behind his back anymore.

Superman not so much!!

Posted by: canechic | June 14, 2009 at 11:00 PM

Yeah, Superman is great when he's in the air, it's when he's on the ground that you can stop him. His game is rather limited, probably because no one ever forced him to develop it because he's so talented in other ways. Now, though, he's going to have to work on real technique and moves, not just natural gifts. Hopefully that's what he'll do. If he does, he'll be unstoppable but it will take a few years.

The NBA hasn't had a talented, versatile, skilled big man since Hakeem, Robinson, Ewing and probably someone else I'm forgetting.

#3, 7 , 8 , 9 are FALSE.

The rest are TRUE.

The Truth

#8 I mean that Miami will win but GT will get some yards cuz it's what they do...

86Cane

Canes go 2-2 through the first four games and finish at 9-3 with a nice, decent bowl game at the end of 2009.

There it is...

j.w.

That's the way I saw it as well Truth. Ga. tech will get their yards, but I still think we beat them on the scoreboard.

elliott

I sit quietly laughing to myself as I watch College Football Live on ESPN.......

Little does the world know what we really have on this team, the scary thing is I don't think we do either.......

timcanes

timcanes
