I dont care what the sport is. You cant let either one of those schools come into our house and beat us. Be dirty with hard fouls or beanballs and let them know the 305 is no place for the weak of heart. Dont just beat them but take away their manhood while doing it.

You got to have thick skin in this business. I come here to talk to you guys because you treat me with respect, even if you don't agree with my opinions or thoughts. If there is something you like or don't like about what I've written -- keep bringing it. I ain't scurrred! LOL

By the way, Latwan Anderson is a confirmed visitor this weekend. So I guess there REALLY was smoke. If it goes well and if coach is comfortable with letting him be a part of the team, I'd expect him to be a Cane come Monday, if not, he'll go to WVU.

bg...we are NOT talking about that anymore. It's OVER. Let it go. I let Randy's comment and Calvin's comments stand to be fair and balanced. I will do the same to be fair. No more comments from me on the subject. Promise.

Thanks for your input and support, but you are in way too deep and taking all this way too personally. It's a sports blog. Nobody comes here to talk about relationships, or justice or open air forums.

Talk about UM sports, not people.

Six- When Yogi was talking about the old days with the Yankees it made me feel like I was right there living that life with him. A super guy

I would just warn parents to not bring their children over when Yogi is sitting around talking about those days with other adults, he tosses 4 letter bombs like crazy. It goes great with his stories

Loves the suds as well

So....when Timmy PEDbow gets busted for using supplements will the media crush him like they did all the others or will it be spun in a different light?

Of course this was JMO, but why not him?

From Shandel at the Sun-Sentinel:

A few thoughts:

–Running back Storm Johnson said he was timed at 4.38 in the 40-yard dash. According to UM, Tommy Streeter now runs a 4.4. That says something about Johnson’s combination of size and speed.

–Coach Randy Shannon said there was a noticeable decline in running production last year when Hill was injured. Hill is 100 percent, and should bolster the running game.

–Tight ends coach Joe Pannunzio said the biggest difference in senior Richard Gordon is maturity. Gordon now takes notes during team meetings. It’s a sign he’s realizing this is his last opportunity to make an impact.

Will see what we are made of this weekend. So far we've beaten up some bums and losing to Manhatten, should never happen. Latwan Anderson is paying us a visit this weekend. I hope it's not another trip to get away from some cold weather, on our dime. It amazes me when these players say they are life long Hurricanes fans and their uncles, dad's or whoever how many they have in their family, love us and then they sign somewhere else.

Daytoncane

had something on my mind that i wanted to post.

why is it that in Florida there is so much hate towards the Canes? all you guys ever talk about is when you wear your Canes gear you all get the stink eye from other people. that just doesn't make sense to me.

whenever i used to tell people that i liked the Canes (in Ohio) they instantly acknowledged us the U, not Miami. people never gave me hell for it and always said good things about us. and this is in Dayton, Ohio.

isn't it very ironic that the Canes receive so much hate in their home state, yet i hear nothing but good things about them in a state that you all supposedly despise?

im not trying to start anything, just had something on my mind that i don't understand.

Are we seriously considering Gretzky's son?

So, we're back to U sports now, right? :) Anyone going to be able to give updates from the game tonight? I'll try to listen to it on the internet, but I always appreciate the efforts of the bloggers here..

U are correct sir. GO CANES, BEAT THE GATORS!

j.w.

CGNC- Frowm what I read/heard, Young Gretzky is probably staying on the West Coast. My bet is UCLA

j.w.

But Latwaan Anderson? I know Symonette isn't on the roster any more, so maybe there is a spot for him.

Cat5 and SlingBlade...hope U got the message yesterday that I am sick with the flu and will not be at the game tonight or tomorrow.

Daytoncane in Ohio you do not have hundreds of thousands possibly millions of Gator and Seminole fans ( some really fanatical)at every turn. Many that graduate from those 2 schools do not leave the state as do UM grads because they came to Miami just to go to school. Its not that simple but as an example I live on a street with 38 homes 4 Gator grads.... 4 familys have students at FSU or FU. Only one of them even respects me for being a UM fan even though I never went to college anywhere.

Soup - did you see Phillycane was first? Send him a Pens shirt - LOL j/k!

Calvin - my "short feet" are happy to see you posting

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

Plain and simple.........This is a Gator state and they outnumber us Miami fans by far and you know thats a major hatred right there. We hate them and they hate us. Also many people are still stuck in THUG U stuff and look at Miami fans as THUGs as well

SOUP

From Rivals mail bag:

Probably no program was hit harder by early defections to the NFL draft than Georgia Tech. Four players entered the draft and all played key roles in the Yellow Jackets' 11-3 showing and No. 13 final ranking last season.

Running back Jonathan Dwyer led Georgia Tech with 1,395 rushing yards. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas led Tech with 46 receptions (no one else had more than eight). Defensive end Derrick Morgan led the ACC with 12.5 sacks. Strong safety Morgan Burnett was an All-ACC selection. Morgan and Thomas are viewed as possible first-round selections.

moneycane

Dayton I don't get that sort of hate when I wear my Miami gear. Hell I live in Tally and go to FSU and never get the "stink eye". Everyone shows respect to the U. I go to the grocery store and old people throw up the U and it catches me off guard. So in short I don't get any hate in FLA.

CaneSniper

Picking up a late 5-star prospect in the 2010 class would go a long way towards silencing critics and making Canesiper happy.

Dayton,

Wait til this years game at columbus gets closer. And if you think that is bad then wait to see what happens after Miami wins in Columbus. Then the Suckeye nation will have reason to hate the U, right now they are still too grateful for the gifted National Championship to say anything negative.

Gin & Tonic

Also rivalry has a lot to do with it. For example; In Miami if you see an infant in a Detroit Lions outfit you think to yourself, "poor little fella has to root for the Lions his whole life". Now you see an infant in a NY Jets/NE Patriot outfit you think to yourself, "let's eliminate the little bastard before it has a chance to reproduce".

Yes we do.

CaneSniper,
That's what worries me about picking up a 5-star, when's the last time one panned out. The jury is still out on Forston and Armstrong But every little bit helps. We have to break the 5-star jinx sooner or later.

DZ8

Cromartie to the jets won't be fun twice a year.

I wanted him coming out of fla st. but was reluctant to use the #16 pick on him. I would trade Jason Allen (our 16th pick) for him right now.

Six

I watched FSU put a 7 spot on the Crocs in the 1st inning Tuesday night, the Crocs starter didn't even make it out of the 1st inning with a recorded out - he got shelled for 5 earned runs on 3 hits with 5 batters faced .... he also hit 2 of the FSU batters. It was Anthony DeSclafani on the mound for the Crocs. The first 5 batters for FSU got on base

FSU won the game, 10-5

The thing with FSU is, their batters stood in the box, even with DeSclafani hitting one FSU guy in the shoulder and also hitting another one on the top of the head with a pitch. Didn't rattle FSU at all - hope the Canes don't fall for that garbage either, trying to be intimidated at the plate, or losing control of your emotions after taking a pitch high and tight, and then swinging at bad pitches after that

The Crocs top of the lineup isn't bad, 1-4. Matt den Dekker (Sr.), Josh Adams (Jr.), Preston Tucker (Soph.) and Austin Maddox (Frosh). Tucker was named SEC Frosh of the Year last year, NCBWA Frosh Hitter of the Year, Frosh All-American. He also won the triple crown for the Crocs last year and blasted a HR against the Canes in the NCAA Tourney. The kid is from Tampa, watched him at Plant High.

Josh Adams dropped a HR on the Canes last year as well, going back-to-back with Tucker.

Matt den Dekker is on the SEC All-Defensive team - the kid also does whatever he has to do to get on base. He led the team last year in being hit by pitch and doesn't have a problem sacrificing to move runners over.

The Crocs outfield has some decent arms. I watched them during warm-ups, gauging them and they'll make you take a second guess in tagging up if you want to advance in medium ranged hits to the outfield. I think the aggressiveness of the Canes on the base paths will help though, might make them rush their throws. Their RFielder Pigott has a nice arm. The whole team looked crisp in their fielding warm-ups, O'Sullivan has some kids with nice quick hands, fundamentally sound in their footwork. He brought some of that Clemson ACC type ball to UiF.

On the flip side, FSU looked sloppy in their fielding warm-ups, but it didn't really show during the game b/c their pitching didn't really allow their fielding too much work anyway.

Crocs have 3 kids from Tampa as starters on their team. Tucker from Plant High, Tommy Toledo is a righty starting pitcher from Alonso, Alex Panteliodis is a lefty pitcher from Alonso as well. All of them are Sophs. Toledo is a freakin beanpole, he makes Jacory Harris look like Mark Mangino the former Kansas head coach.


The Canes will see both Panteliodis and Toledo during this series. Panteliodis is supposed to throw tonight against Chris Hernandez. Tommy Toledo will be throwing on Sunday. So the Canes will face 2 lefties in a row, with a righty on Sunday.

If anyone remembers last year in the NCAA Tourney, the Crocs dropped 22 hits on the Canes when they curb stomped them 16-5. The Crocs had 7 two-out hits in a row .... that's absolutely pathetic and inexcusable for the Canes to allow that to happen.

Canes better play like they did against the Crocs the first time they went to Gainesville last year when they swept them in a 3 game series and outscored them 26-8 .... b/c they played like garbage the second time they went there, when it really mattered.

I'm still pissed about that dirty slide that Riley Cooper did to Scott Lawson at 2B, the game that the Canes won 16-2. He freaking kicked Lawson in the stomach. I don't forget things like that and I still want some retribution ... I couldn't believe none of the Canes pitchers had Lawson's back by tattooing one of the Crocs right in the upper ribs - even the Croc pitcher hit JWeislow in the back, after he came in from the outfield and shoved Riley Cooper after kicking Lawson

Canes better salt the earth with these punkasses from UiF

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

Here in Tampa we had to put up with the Bull fans for quite awhile and we shut that noise up real quick. Since UF has scoreboard on us the last few times we`ve played them it seems to have become worse

Posted by: moneycane | March 05, 2010 at 12:46 PM

Hell I used to sport my Canes gear when I lived in Tally all the time and NEVER had anyone mess with me. I used to have people ask why aren't I at Miami but when I told them how much the tuition was they would say OH, I didn't know that.

I could care less what a Gayturd or Criminole think though. Been beating their ass like red headed step children.

DZ8

I love the fact a top recruit like Anderson is considering us late. If he blows up not many people will notice and if he does good then awesome.

Also I remember reading about how Butch eventually had the good players in the lockerroom that he was able to take a "chance" on some questionable characters knowing the team would "police" itself. Same thing is happening now even if it doesn't happen with Latwan this year.

Lurker

i don't understand.

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 05, 2010 at 12:23 PM

Dayton - I could write a book, or at least an article, on why there is so much hatred for the Canes. The reasons you've gotten so far are all valid. There are several others, I'll just give you one of many:

Probably the most virulent hatred comes from FU fans. You've got to remember, the Canes has 4 National Championships in football and the Gators had not even sniffed an NC yet, or for that matter I don't think they had won their first SEC title until the 90's (not even talking baseball here, just football)

This hatred is born of that envy, of an all consuming jealousy; Right up until the Tebow era, UF was WITHOUT QUESTION the MOST UNDERACHIEVING college football program in the HISTORY OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL. 100 years of being in arguably the most talent rich state (Texas & CA might argue, but I still say FL), state funding out the ying-yang, an enormously large fan base, a huge alumni base, with tons of cash, and practically the entire state behind them.....AND....nothing...nada...zippo.
Now this little private school in south Florida, "Da U" comes in and takes the world by storm, wins 4 NC's. It all highlighted their pathetic underachievement. EPIC FAIL.

I still say if you look at their overall history, they are undoubtedly the most underachieving college football program in the history of college football.

There are other reasons, Dayton, but that's the genesis of their major hate towards us. There are several other reasons as well, though.

DZ8

I'll be happy if the Dolphins can get Karlos Dansby and either Jamal Williams from SD or that Pacific Islander name (no offense Six) that Carolina just cut. Both coming off of injuries but it'll give us some flexibility entering the draft. BPA.
