• Ex-UM quarterback Ken Dorsey, 28, said he will pursue a coaching career -- ``I feel I can be a great coach'' -- and would love to return to UM. ``I've never talked to Randy Shannon [about a job], unfortunately,'' Dorsey said, though he has sought career advice from UM athletic director Kirby Hocutt.

Dorsey, who was a volunteer coach at Lakewood Ranch High in Bradenton last season, has spoken to a few non-BCS schools about an assistant job. He said he intended to take an administrative job working at FIU for athletic director Pete Garcia -- ``Pete and I are close'' -- but changed career goals and plans to call FIU's Mario Cristobal.

Dorsey said he ``texted Jacory Harris every week this past season. He's one of the smartest quarterbacks there in a long time. I see leadership qualities that I had.''

• Arthur Brown Sr. said it was his decision, not his son's, for Arthur Jr. to leave UM and enroll at Butler Community College in Kansas, two miles from the parents' home, where Arthur Jr. is now living. ``I thought it was time for him to come home. He needed the support,'' Arthur Sr. said. ``He has spent a tremendous amount of time away from people who love him.''

Wall Street Journal said that Billy Donovan was the 3rd worst value of a college basketball coach in the nation

$3.3 Million a year

They got their ass kicked tonight - AT HOME - by Xavier. I think the loss tonight basically solidifies them to go to a 3rd straight NIT

I'd be willing to put money down that if the A-10 and the SEC played a tourney against each other, the A-10 would win

With the exception of UK (basically 2 players make that team) and Rocky Top - who is really that good in that big name conference? Vandy? Who the hell has Vandy beaten to even give them the #22 ranking? They beat #12 Rocky Top twice - wow. What's that say about Rocky Top?

SEC basketball reminds me of Pac-10 football. You take one program out of either - and it's a mediocre conference. Take Kentucky basketball out of the SEC and take USC football out of the Pac-10 ....

10 National Championships won in basketball by the SEC - 7 by Kentucky

17 National Championships won in football by the Pac-10 - 10 by USC

Spence was trying to cover Spiller with a bum left leg - not saying that he's as fast as Spiller, but if he didn't have a busted wheel then he would've made Parker think twice before throwing to him

If anyone remembers that route that Spiller ran, you'll remember Spence basically hopping after him - his left leg (knee specifically) - caused him to miss the next game against Wake

And no, Spence's injury had nothing to do with Swasey's workouts for all of you Swasey haters

Spilleresque? Not a threat to run between the tackles?

Posted by: Esteban | February 13, 2010 at 07:24 PM

No, what I mean is a threat to return kickoffs for TDs right before halftime and then beat Sean Spence for another TD in the same game. Two TDs a game. That kind of "Spilleresque".

Why run betwen the tackles when U can get a quick six outside. isn't scoring the name of the game? We got Berry and Mike James to run between the tackles.

Daytoncane

there's really no such thing as football fast because football is about quickness.

having great speed is something that comes into play when you're running the 200m. there's a difference between speed and quickness.

in football you don't have to be fast as in olympic speed, you just have to be quick. football is played in short burst so there's no need to have olympic speed.

a WR who has olympic speed but is not overly quick is at a disadvantage because of how fast the game moves. you don't have a lot of time to get in and out of your breaks so quickness is ultimately more important. except if you're Randy Moss of course.

And the MOST impressive thing about the Killian Cougar known as Miller is that he LOOKS like a football player. I mean big, strong and 220 lb dude running like that?

I think he is Spilleresque!

Damn, 86. Me and Randy were grilling about an hour ago. While the coals were burning, we were talking about Miller, and I said the same thing.

Demps is football fast. He's don't have the change of pace ability of Harvin, but coming around the corner on the sweep he flies by people. its straight line speed, well more like super speed.

someone who was faster combine wise than on the field was Greg Olsen. he ran a 4.4 forty at the combine, but would get run down by non 4.4 running DBs on the football field. Epps is faster on the football field. Probably will be a tenth of a second slower at the combine though.

86Cane

Rice was like Mike Irvin: 4.6 on their BEST day.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Dayotn, football fast is Devin Hester, Bo Jackson, Marshall Faulk- agility, acceleration, reaction and acceleration, especially with changes of direction. To me this is an entirely difference set of neuro-muscular processes.

This is why so few track guys have ever done well in the NFL and why a guy like Jerry Rice is the greatest ever, even though he barely ran a 4.5

Then of course you have guys like Darrel Green, Deion Sanders and a few others in addition to the already mentioned.

Demps is somewhere between. Fantastic straight line speed but it takes him a minute to reach maximum velocity and when he has to stop, change direction and start, he's not so impressive.

That's the difference between him and Harvin. Demps would smoke Percy in a 40 or 60 dash but on a football field, Demps isn't even close to Percy.

Esteban

at what point was there a high percentage of rappers who were actually good? at its highest was probably when you couldn't get rich off it since there wasn't the incentive for everyone to try to become a rapper. now people can get filthy rich so you got everyone plus 2 trying to be a rapper. watered things down. still a good amount of guys who can flow. still a good amount that can make good songs. still good amount that get clubs/parties rockin. still not that many that can do all the above. its been that way from day 1.

about the snap crackle pop - soulja boy songs. bun b said it best. if you ain't feeling it that means ur probably older and you ain't the intended audience. same for his music. his intended audience ain't little kids. so would make sense that they probably won't be feeling bun b. not about whether its good or not. its about where u at in life.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Hillview, the Jamaicans have ONE maybe two guys we can't beat regularly, and the reason Bolt is doing what he's doing is because of his height and RPMs.

Once some of our taller, fast guys come along and decide to focus exclusively on track, we'll dominate it again.

Our fastest guys, Tyson Gay, is of the shorter, classic sprinter build but his height is actually a disadvantage against Bolt.

We'll dominate it again, trust me.

canechic

Thank you JSQ and miamimike! The only Rehab he could get into was Mt. Sinai the transferred him today and soon he should be as good as new! :)

HillViewCane

You know those times, especially for a guy like Demps, are the reason that America will never dominate the male sprints in track and field again and why a nation like Jamaica can now excel.

Virtually all of our fast young male talent go into football and stop developing as track athletes.

Not saying it's bad but that is just the way it is. There is incredibly small chance somebody who can make it to the NFL gives it up for track. It's just much easier to make money in football.

So when I see the Jamaican male sprinters I don't think they are on steroids just because they beat us I just think there weren't any other options in Jamaica that were as good for them so they focused on that one area. They pursue track scholarships like we chase football scholarships.

Daytoncane

how has Demps not proven he's football fast yet?

and what is football fast?

I posted some track times a couple of weeks ago from the Pitt meet, and all 3 of our guys ran faster than those times listed above.

But it is eye opening that Miller is motoring as fast as TB.

We haven't had that kind of speed in a back for awhile.

Someone want to remind since who?

Lurker

Good info. on the track times.

Demps is fast, sure. There's straight line fast, and there's football fast. Demps hasn't proven he's football fast at this level yet.

Travis, Lamar, et al, show a good foundation of speed by those times, and I'm betting they're going to be football fast this year. Lamar could be a hell of a change of pace back.

Yeah, yeah... I know U'all Miami fandom want to play the best of the best every FREAKIN' WEEK.

But bUbba's, this ain't a VINTAGE Miami Hurricane squad of say 2000, 2001, 2002 or even 2003. Those Cane teams could handle the type of MONSTER schedule Miami's been playing last season, and now this upcoming season.

U'all dig. No! Well, I didn't believe so. LOL

AfriCane

While we are on the topic of rap, am I the only one ghat thinks DJ Khaled is a fraud? Back in the day, all he used to play and rep was east coast music. North Miami cats hated him for it, him and that Miami Heat DJ. All of a sudden, southern rap became The cash cow and he went with the money. Why else do you think he fits perfectly with terror squad, since Fat Joe all of a sudden started kissing the south's a$$. But I really think Fatty Joe was just making alliances so he would have support incase he ever gets jumped. I mean, he couldn't even handle 50!

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Someone put Haith out of his misery already.

As far as rap is concerned, it's been a great example of how many styles Americans have and are and also how greatly we vary from region to region.

At the same time, a tight flow is a tight flow but there has only been one real poet...The R.

www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000117339359

Jus do me the Favor of listenin to the song before we say its wack because its south or its Jeezy(WoW...I used to be jus like U guys, thtz why its funny now Im pushn 4 ppl to listen to the South)...lol..

www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000117339359

Agreed NYC is the Mecca but they aren't the only ones rappn and Im frm Chicago I had to learn to listen to every coast and not be biast...the whole he can't say anything credible because he frm the South is wrong..I like Jeezy and I think alot of his material is Very Underrated..

Daytoncane

no offense, but New York is kinda the mecca of rap music.

the east coast has always been better at it than anyone else. lyrically, they are just better. even in the mid 90's when Cali was a hotbed for rappers the east coast was still superior in terms of quantity of rappers.

and all artists do now is that snap, crackle, and pop sh*t. by that i mean they find a dance and then attach a gimmick to it (autotune, etc) and they got a hit.

southern artists used to be really good but now they're just a joke. and this is coming from a guy that used to live in Atlanta and loved the south.

AfriCane

Elliot, don't say rap is dead in the south homey! The south is on top right now and they hate it when NY rappers or NY tap disciple rag on their work. You play east coast rap in opa locka, just pray you make it to the palmetto. As far as my own opinnion: for someone who's re-tuned his eardrum from rap to Bach and Chinese theatre, I don't think you can objectively claim one region's work is better than the other. It's a different style. Even though I like poetry and east coast rap is the closest thing to that, I still have to objectively recognize that they are different. I mean is English better than French? Is Japanese better than Spanish? Is Swahili better than Hindi? The one answer for all that is no. They are just different languages. Well! Maybe Hindi kind of s......LOL! No disrespect to any Indians on the blog. Just joking!

Honestly I used to be the same way about Rap Music ... its the same thing the Old CANES are doing to the NEW U gotta respect change for what it is...Jeezy isnt the most lyrical but as far as saying it plain and simple I guarantee if you listen to Young Jeezy on ShowTime...Its All CANES...

canechic - hope everything works out well for your pops. Mine had a mini-stroke a couple of years ago .. I don't want to go into how many times over the years I've told him and my mom to eat better. They're both skinny, eat like birds, but it's what they eat simply b/c of being on the run and convenience - fast food. Always drinking Diet Coke as well

I got onto his ass more than the physical therapists did when I was there to go to a few sessions with him. They're both old school though, get all their physical work done outside with the horses, taking care of the horses, feed/hay/fence building/barn building, etc. I try to get them to stretch more - it's like trying to tell a fat kid to stay away from cake, it ain't happenin

Anyway, my pops still has some fatigue problems on his left leg after a while, you can tell. He's lucky he didn't have a full blown stroke ... I thought the mini-stroke would scare him straight. It did for a while, then, they slowly got back into their old eating habits - if I was there, I'd be getting on them at every meal. All those pills they're taking aren't an excuse to just eat like garbage again

Hope it all comes out well for you - good karma, good things happen

86 - If we could've gotten you hired through our General Manager or new News Director (who is a Canes alum and so is his wife), then I could've probably gotten you the Daytona 500 passes, ha

Other than that, you'd have to convince the peeps at Daytona that you are a brother from another mother with the computer guy, or that you're adopted b/c you have a little bit lighter skin and he has a little bit darker skin

Put it this way, you're Peyton Manning and he's Reggie Wayne

Listen To What Jeezy say like fa real...Then Think Bout the CANES...
Jeezy = CANEmusic

No Jadakiss =Cane Music

No offense but the rap game sucks and so does jeezy, dude couldn't rap a christmas present...Look for rap to continue going downhill and eventually die out because it sucks like a vacuum. Not trying to be mean or rude it is just that no one in the rap game right now is even anywhere near decent except of course the usual Jadakiss, Styles P, NaS "partially retired", Az"retired", and everyone is long and gone
Mobb Deep
Kool G Rap
Biggie
2Pac
Pete Rock and CL Smooth
Outkast
Talib Khali
Nature
Foxy Brown
and there are a few others but rap now "sucks"

Why do U think I listen to Old Rap? Because that is when it was at its purest form..Late 90's was when rap was the real deal...Now it just sucks...

I was out at The Tom Shaw Speed Camp yesterday at West Orange High School

Some of the guys there: Patrick Robinson-Dekoda Watson-Myron Rolle (Noles), Thad Lewis (Dookie), Morgan Burnett (GTech Bumblebee), Kyle Wilson (Boise State), Jamar Wall (Texas Tech), Perry Riley (LSU), Armanti Edwards (Appy State) .... and some jabroni named Matt Grothe (USF)

Dekoda Watson is jacked and so is Myron Rolle

They don't cast a Godzilla like shadow like Orlando Franklin-stein (thanks DZ8 for the reference in your article) ... but ya, they're very well put together and athletic as hell

Myron is one of the most eloquent speaking individuals I've been around - he free style raps as well, Will Smith style (no cursing at all)

Thad Lewis reminds me of Byron Leftwich pooh-bear looking in the face


If you want some training techniques, this speed camp was the place to be. Got to watch them in the weight room and then out on the field

Got about 3 hours of footage that I'll try and cook down to about 3 minutes for a video

I told U yesterday that the the word on the skreet is that the sticking point is the buyout clause. As usual the coach wants it high, the University wants it low.

Truth, J, care to weigh in????

Posted by: 86Cane | February 13, 2010 at 12:29 PM

thanks 86 i missed this (i don't know how because i read every line of this blog-- lol!). the buyout clause being the issue shouldn't matter. was it an issue (for this long) with previous hurricane coaches? competitor coaches? i just don't get it. i don't want to make too big of a deal about this but. . . well i guess we'll see.

boss shannon is a good soldier in my mind. he hasn't made an issue of it. keeps grinding it out and upgrading the program.

i guess he'll have to win the nc before this thing gets done. hmmmmm. . .

Why are we worried about Randy getting an extension?

A couple things

2. No top 10 school or better opportunity has ever been offered to him that I ever read about

3 I don't think he would leave Miami for more money at a less competitive program.

4. He hasn't won the Coastal Division or Bowl game.

Dear Old Clemson, we will triumph
And with all our might
That the Tiger’s roar may echo
O’er the mountain height

86Cane

From one of the Raycom blogs:

My games this weekend- Miami @ Clemson- Saturday @ Noon- This is another must win for the Tigers. They must start climbing over .500 and building some momentum toward March. A healthy Demontez Stitt will be a key for them and some support from the perimeter would certainly take some pressure off of Trevor Booker. Look for them to crank up the press against the Canes, who have not played well on the road and have a young backcourt. Dwayne Collins has to be dominant in the paint if the U can pull of the upset.

86Cane

For more on the Canes, the game and the series go here:

THE SERIES

Clemson leads the all-time series with Miami, 8-6, and has won two straight over the Hurricanes, including a 79-69 decision in the program’s last meeting in Littlejohn Coliseum on Feb. 27, 2008. UM last defeated Clemson, 75-72, on Jan. 27, 2008, in Coral Gables.

In the team’s lone meeting last season, the then-No. 25 Tigers overcame an early 12-point deficit to defeat the Hurricanes, 91-72, in the conference opener for both teams in Coral Gables. K.C. Rivers scored a game-high 28 points for Clemson, while Trevor Booker grabbed 16 rebounds. Miami struggled with a season-high 22 turnovers and missed 12 of its first 17 free throws, despite a fast start for an early 21-9 lead. Four Hurricanes finished in double figures, including 20 points from Jack McClinton, 11 points and three blocks from Cyrus McGowan and 10 points from Dwayne Collins.

Clemson’s pressure defense leads the ACC and ranks seventh in the nation with 10.2 steals per game, while ranking third in the ACC and ninth in the nation with a stifling three-point defense, limiting opponents to 28.4 percent shooting from long range.

The Hurricanes are looking to put together back-to-back ACC wins for the first time this season, following Wednesday’s 64-62 victory over No. 20/20 Georgia Tech. Miami is 3-1 at home in the BankUnited Center versus conference opponents, but has not fared well on the road in league play and looks to earn its first conference road win versus a tough Tiger team on Saturday.

Following Saturday’s matinee, the Hurricanes have just one conference road contest remaining, a March 2 date at North Carolina.

and for the record, when I sent this article I said something like, "don't blame the depth at WR if your favorite player didn't show statistical improvement". Somehow when I sent it it became AJ being the best WR.

I have NO IDEA of how that could have happened??? LOL
