I've got a Canespace shirt and a bottle of Patron. Will that work?

From the Miami Herald:

The Ring was established in 1997 to recognize outstanding UM players through the decades. The members honored are determined by UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt and coach Randy Shannon in conjunction with an anonymous advisory committee.

``The University of Miami's football legacy is one that is known throughout the country,'' Hocutt said in a written statement. ``There are so many great players that have played at the `U'. In continuing to add to our Ring of Honor, this group exudes the success and excellence that is synonymous with University of Miami.''

Criteria used in the selection process, according to UM, ``include athletic achievements at UM and at the professional level, commitment and loyalty to the continued success of the university and its athletic department and a personal commitment to courage, fortitude, honesty and integrity.''

The other Ring of Honor members are fullback Don Bosseler (1953-56), running back Ottis Anderson (1975-78), quarterback Bernie Kosar (1982-84), defensive back Burgess Owens (1970-72), quarterback George Mira (1961-63), halfback Jim Dooley (1949-51), defensive end Ted Hendricks (1966-68) and quarterback Vinny Testaverde (1982-86).

makes sense to me. some of us are old enough to remember when Pat Summerall and Lou "the toe" Groza kicked the ball straight on! I have always been amazed at how far soccer players can kick a ball with just a few steps. they changed the kicking game in football.

mi@mic@ne

I think we understand the kind of chemistry that this coaching staff has... lets not get too emotional about these potential areas where if we focus on that particular weakness in the mixture then we will end up with something that would be a disaster. The Boss is a great recruiter and a motivator especially understanding how to develop a winning program... lets keep him on the side lines to motivate players. On the other hand his assistants have a vast number of experiences in football that would give them the upper hand as far as decision making on the field. But i think if Randy has an idea then he should be able to present it to his coordinators.Look any kind of family must perform within their task. And if its going to be a good atmosphere then there must be some kind of selflessness in the effort. We won some of the biggest games with this crew... we just need to work together a little more and these kids need to work to get back on the field... i dont care if they sit in a tub of ice all nite long to get the swelling down or take an epidural to give the body a rest... or drink some tephlon to recover faster... but that is our biggest problem... not this coaching staff...

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Solar, I don't think Shannon always blames someone else. He's talked about himself several times but when a kid misses an assignment it is what it is.

Whipple's not leaving because Shannon called a timeout too early, jeez people. If anything Shannon needed it to really back off totally and let Whip run every aspect of the offense.

Shannon did call the T/O, right?

Esteban

less soap opera and more football.

Texascane

All I know about kicking is that you can watch any goalkeeper in soccer kick a round ball (more drag) 70 yards with three or four steps.

If Bosher, or any other kicker, can kick 60 with three steps...why does he need a 10 yard run?

Kind of like a golf swing...the harder you try to hit the ball, the worse you do.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Was it true Daniel Adderley dissed the Canes in his facebook?

Yes, he said it always make him happy when Miami loses. True beyootch LOSER, mad at Miami because HE sucked. I hope Kiffin knows what he's wasting a 'ship on.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Este, did you actually see what happened with the t/o spat?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Este, also, did it seem to you that our biggest weakness was LBs in coverage?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Other than pass rush of course.

Esteban

i thought the biggest weakness was the lack of pass rush since it all starts up front. but the LBs in coverage...i didn't really pay that much attention to it. just saw TEs wide open a lot. not sure if they were lost in a zone or lost in man coverage. but either way it didn't look good.

Esteban

well, yeah you beat me to it.


and the t/o issue was just an in game issue. nothing can be done about it once its done. and i've come to expect Randy to say whatever he thinks will lead to the least follow up questions being asked. although sometimes it leads to more.

Esteban

not sure how much the TEs issue fell on the DBs though. and spiller being open on wheel routes is on the DBs since no scheme is going to draw up having a LB covering Spiller without help over top. Clemson just ran Ford right in front of the safeties to get their attention and they would lose track of helping on Spiller.

CORAL GABLES - The loss of fullback Pat Hill has hurt the Miami Hurricanes more than expected.

Hill suffered an ankle injury the third week of the season against Virginia Tech and will miss his fifth straight game Saturday at Wake Forest.

UM coach Randy Shannon said freshman Mike James has been a solid replacement, but the Hurricanes miss the more physical Hill.

"You always want a big guy that's 240-250 (pounds)," Shannon said.

The 5-foot-9, 255-pound Hill is a two-year starter compared to James, who is 220 pounds and adjusting to unexpectedly moving from tailback.

Shannon said blocking has been the biggest difference, affecting offensive philosophy.

"Pat Hill makes a big difference on what we're doing on offense," Shannon said. "But Mike is doing a great job of blocking and also catching the football and doing a good job on pass protection."

QUICK HITS

--The coaching staff continues to wait on the development of sophomore linebacker Arthur Brown. Shannon said Brown, the highest-rated recruit in the 2008 class, is "still learning" the defensive schemes.

-- The Hurricanes lone return for a touchdown on special teams was a punt by Thearon Collier against Florida A & M. Shannon said teams have done a solid job with hang time on kicks and punts, preventing big plays.

--The Hurricanes go from one extreme to another this week. After facing a big-play Clemson offense, Wake Forest tends to wear defenses down with long drives.

--Expect freshman defensive tackle Curtis Porter to become a bigger part of rotation. Shannon has been impressed with his play.

I am glad we working on our pass rush, I am also hoping our LB show up this week, Ray Ray can play some LB

Spence is out...
Shannon said Buchanan ``is developing'' and ``still has some things he needs to learn and concentrate on. But he has done a great job to get himself in a situation where he can help us out.''

The other two linebackers who will rotate, if needed, are junior Kylan Robinson and sophomore Arthur Brown.

Safety Randy Phillips said Buchanan is eager for the opportunity.

``He's very athletic,'' Phillips said. ``He's light, quick on his feet, one of the faster guys on the team. His instincts are good. He plays hard without a lot of thinking and that's what we need right now, someone who is going to run, play hard, play great defense without all the hesitation.''

The uncertainty at linebacker should force UM's defensive line to compensate by being more aggressive.

The linemen have not put enough pressure on the quarterbacks this season, giving players such as Clemson's Kyle Parker lots of time to develop plays.

``We just have to get better up front,'' Shannon said. ``We have to get the right combination in there to get to the passer.''

BAILEY MOVES TO END
Shannon will move Allen Bailey from defensive tackle to end this week. Bailey had two sacks last Saturday, one resulting in a Parker fumble. End Marcus Robinson scooped the ball up and ran 46 yards for UM's first defensive score of the season.

``If you get pressure, the quarterback doesn't have time to set his feet and he makes bad throws,'' Robinson said. ``We need to make more plays in the backfield to create open scenes for our linebackers. It gives them more time to see the play develop and know where to fit.''

Said Phillips: ``Plays like that excite the crowd and help the defense with motivation. We need the same thing this week to get points and get momentum and build a swag for the defense.''
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I guess even a blind man could see it!

Don't know who (Randy or JL) decided not to rush last week but someone should have realized it by half time and changed it up.

If nothing else... "JUST PRETEND" to and fluctuate in and out off the line... anything is better then standing back 5 yards and letting the QB study who and where the defense formation is weakest!!!

The constant motion has got to screws up the QB concentration.

CaneSniper

Dang I was out of the country for the Clemson game. WTF happened!!

Anyone see the on field spat between Urban Myth and Steve Addazio where Myth was dressing Addazio down, during the Miss.State game?

Once again, you see what the cameras choose for you to see. If the technical director didn't have a double box on the screen with camera X and Y in it, then you wouldn't have see the result, Z

And then none of the Miami Herald or Sun Sentinel or any other writer that wasn't there on the sidelines to witness it, wouldn't have written about it or been talking about it. Same goes with every single viewer of that game

Heat of the moment, heat of the battle ... still don't know how Miami gets a penalty after the timeout for too many men on the field - then Jacory throws up a ball that Graham can't track down, next play throws an INT ..... you don't think that Whipple is going to show a little bit of emotion heading into the locker room after that?

Six

CaneSniper - just like Randy Shannon and the Canes team, we're only talking about Wake Forest .. ha

Seriously though, why are reporters from the Sun Sentinel, Miami Herald, or anyone else that goes to post practice or press conferences this week still asking about the Clemson game - on WEDNESDAY?

macjones de Albuquerque

By way of the Miami Herald, here's some Cane gossip for U'all Miami fandom to nit pick about. LOL

I knew there was more to meet the Eye of the Hurricane, regarding Coaches Shannon and Whipple. Because Whipple is a pretty kool kat, and just don't let any old thing to get him going on the Warpath. LOL
---------------------------

"Shannon irks Miami coordinatorViews 2403 Comments 13 06:39 AM ET 10.28 Share Print It My T&R A Miami official confirmed that offensive coordinator Mark Whipple indeed was upset late in the first half Saturday because coach Randy Shannon called UM's last timeout with 20 seconds left. Whipple had a play designed to gain 10 to 15 yards, and planned to call a timeout after that."

Miami Herald

macjones de Albuquerque

"If Whipple wants to leave because he isnt getting "his way" then let him go. The Canes was great before he came, and the Canes will be great after he leaves.

If he was the genius some of you make him out to be, then why isnt he still in the NFL? Why did the Steelers and Eagles let him go?

I will repeat what i said on an earlier post, Whipple needs the Canes more than the Canes need Whipple.

GO CANES!"

That may be the most unbelievable statement I have ever read on here. Wrong on so many levels...

Posted by: Texascane | October 28, 2009 at 09:57 AM

Baby, U are so correct. Sometimes most, but not all, Hurricane fandom can't see the Eye of the Storm for the Wind. Or is that, they can't see the Wind for the Eye of the Hurricane.

macjones de Albuquerque

i thought the biggest weakness was the lack of pass rush since it all starts up front. but the LBs in coverage...i didn't really pay that much attention to it. just saw TEs wide open a lot. not sure if they were lost in a zone or lost in man coverage. but either way it didn't look good.

Posted by: Esteban | October 28, 2009 at 11:12 AM

Stevie, kind of reminded moi of the last home game in the O.B. Think Virginia hitting the TE time after time after time in the middle of the field. Be it dink passes, or 15-20 yard type of passes.

In other words, the LB's were A.W.O.L. in that particular A.C.C. game.

Cat 5 Cane


Randy called the timeout, with the ball on the 33, with 20 seconds on the clock. Thinking Whip forgot about it...

Whip lost total control and jumped on Randy because he had it under control and was saving it... after Harris would complete the next play. Guessing maybe 10 seconds remaing and or a TD attempt.

After the time out... whip was not concentrating, which lead to the 12 man on the field and a penaly, which took us out of field goal range.

last play of the half... lead to a TD attempt and a INT... leaving Whipple fuming mad at Randy's interference... Randy's bad, but it's his team not Whipple's.

Hate to say it... but he brought Whipple here for a reason... and needs to let Whipple run it... So far he's done a great job! With the questionable 3 run plays in a row... so what!

Isn't there a mule or donkey out there that we can throw a jersey on and have kick off. I thought I saw a movie about it, Gus, the incredible kicking mule.

Question is, can we get a mule with some eligibility left ... or has Matt Perrelli used up EVERYONE'S eligibility?

Losing brings bs out of the wood work. Damn near every college and pro game has coaches bitching at each other in the heat of the moment but it is not always caught by the TV camaras. If UM had won the spat would have been forgotten by now. I more concern with our defense than our offense. You score 37 points and lose means your defense is shat. I want to see what changes are made in the defensive scheme to put more pressure on the QB. We cannot stay back and let teams pick us apart. With the numerous injuries and shortage of LB's it might be time to run a different scheme. The offense needs to continue scoring mucho points and if JH can cut down on the interceptions I think we can win in shootouts. The Defense will be a question mark the rest of the year but if the offense goes south it will be a repeat of last season. I have faith!

Well, U are about to find out if Miami's D-unit can recoup from their atrocious outing against a surging Clemson ( By the way, the Tigers will meet Georgia Tech in the A.C.C. championship game. ) squad.

Because Skinner and his wideout's intend to heave the pigskin all over the field this Sabado. For Grobe and his offensive staff have picked apart the latest game film of Miami, and they are "feeling it." U dig.

Grobe understands the Canes wink link is the lack of depth, especially the D-line. So, they intend to exploit the matchup's game with their depth on the O-line, and the leadership of Fifth-year Senior Skinner.

Yes, yes your Canes are a prohibitive - 7 point road fav', but see how being a home chalkd did for them. Because it's still about executing the "x's and o's" baby. And Team Shannon failed miserably in that aspect of the game against high rising Clemson.

By the way, all U degenerates out there in the Sunshine state. Take the Tigers this week, and lay the points. For Clemson is "feeling it!" U'all dig.

We were running the ball and scoring points so I was optimistic. We have like a 9 million and 1 record when scoring over 30 points. Now its... and 2. Amazing.

macjones de Albuquerque

Herbie Buck be right on about Miami's emotional tank coming into Saturday.

IF your Miami Hurricanes come out absolutely FLAT on their opening TWO SERIES on both offense and defense, it's going to come down to the last minutes. Think a Clemson nightmare all over again. U'all read it here first!

macjones de Albuquerque

Great point DZ8. Defense is all about "controlled emotion," and I fear a flat Cane D-unit.

Simply because the opening four game grind has begun to take it's toll on that unit. Be it physically and or emotional and or psychologically.

Yes, yes I know "not to ask for whom the Bell Tolls, for it could toll for thee. LMAO
