Dayton,

we lost today cause we had injuries, and bunch of kids are underclassmen. Once that doesn't happen, you'll see us go undefeated in college basketball.

CORAL GABLES - Cory Nelms, Brittni Finch, Tameka Jameson and Takecia Jameson will travel to Blacksburg, Va. to participate in the Virginia Tech Qualifier on Saturday, March 6 at the Rector Fieldhouse.

The meet will be the last opportunity for student-athletes to qualify or improve on their NCAA qualifying marks in hopes of a higher seeding at the NCAA Indoor Championships - to be held in Fayetteville, Ark. next weekend.

Cory Nelms, currently ranked 21st in the nation in the 60m hurdles will attempt to improve on his season-best time of 7.85 seconds. Last weekend, the senior earned a fifth place finish in the ACC Championships. He is scheduled to race in the preliminary round at 12:10 p.m.

first off Cav addressed me when he put the practice notes up. he told me to read it. so what are you getting at?

if you think im an idiot, then don't respond to me. i don't ever bash you, but you feel the need to say im wrong about everything.

and i didn't hear your reasoning for the example that i provided. you must've missed that part.

As far as DVD is concerned, I always thought that He should've been converted to a FS. Yeah He's fast and all, but He doesn't/didn't have that quickness or recovery speed.

Posted by: CaneRock | March 06, 2010 at 01:09 PM

Interesting theory, never heard anyone mention this before? Too late now...

Finally! Two things we can agree on.

CaneRock

Damn announcers don't know what a travel is, talkin' bout' Jones took 3 steps, when the replay clearly showed He only took 2 steps...

SlingBlade

Looking at Reggie Johnson, He is a good looking big man. Soft hands, good touch, great feet, should be more of a force in the ACC next year...

Posted by: CaneRock | March 06, 2010 at 12:44 PM

reggie has been focusing on losing weight...this off season he needs to focus on gaining muscle..he is too weak to take the ball to the hoop forcefully..if he does that he will be a baaaad man..

SOUP

FSU 40, UM 31 second half, 12 minutes left.

Haith would probably be a heck of a special teams coach.

CaneRock

As far as DVD is concerned, I always thought that He should've been converted to a FS. Yeah He's fast and all, but He doesn't/didn't have that quickness or recovery speed. I mean, if you think about it, CBs are getting beat most of the time, the great ones have that explosion to recover to recover to their man or the ball to make a play...

Haith has had success wherever he's gone, and i love that. but he has to start putting together a more consistent team.

a better offensive coach would be a good start. why would you have a spot up shooter give a ball screen when there's a big in the post just standing there? Thomas should've been in the corner somewhere ready to catch and shoot.

you can tell not enough of our players understand how to read and react to the way the defense is playing them. you can't execute a play if you can't recognize what the defense is doing.

Aquaman

"When kickoff comes for the Knights and Hurricanes at 7:30 p.m. tonight, the temperature will only be 63 degrees, and skies will be party cloudy, according to The Weather Channel."

I was at the game too and when I got to the car the temp read 54 degrees on the way home.

Daytoncane

well time to talk about basketball, which means nobody will pay attention to what im saying.

i think our defense just needs to go to a full time 2-3 like Syracuse. we just don't move our feet or talk well enough to play man to man.

Malcolm Grant should be the full time starter next year, with Scott at the 2. and Reggie Johnson has got some sweet feet for a big man.

Blogging doesn't win championships either but we do it anyway.

I'll make you a deal. Cav and whoever else can feed all the quotes they want from practice and you can just ignore them.

Does that work for you? Or maybe they can just run it by you before they post. We wouldn't want to waste your time.

i read the things Randy says about building the team. i've also read it from other coaches as well about their respective teams. it's not like he's the only one who knows how to build a team.

like i said, talk is cheap.

i LOVE Mike Tomlin, but he did a whole bunch of that last year with the Steelers. first they lost to the Bengals, and all i heard was how they would get it together. then they lost to the Chiefs (WTF) and i heard the same stuff. then they lost to the Ravens and i heard it again.

after the loss to the Ravens, Tomlin said they would "unleash hell in December". you know what happened? they lost to the Raiders and then the Browns on national tv.

see how important talk is?

keep feeding me quotes from practice and i'll feed you quotes from the Steeler's practices in the midst of their 5 game losing streak.

who knew that talking won championships?

It's like he is indecisive and misses opportunities to be in the middle of the play or make a tackle after the fact. Normally seen standing above the play, after the tackle.

Posted by: Cat5Cane | March 06, 2010 at 10:57 AM

Watch the film and U will see that this is true. He's gotta want to mix it up with WRs at the LOS more and get in on more run plays to make a difference this year.

I think DVD showed improvement in run support last year. He still has a long ways to go as a first year player, Sam Shields, took the starting spot opposite Harris for most of the year.

DVD... Been saying it for awhile. Needs more weight and killer aggression to step up to next level.... fast is great but if you are afraid to use it to your advantage, you're wasting a spot on the roster.

Not all of the time but way too many times to be considered a good DB

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

They had a safety named the Assassin...if we are to get better on D, and get more turnovers, we need players who want to play like Tatum, Reed, S Taylor...punish and hurt people...not Dancing with the Stars guys like DVD...he should have gone to UF with Urban...Ray Ray....now thats a Hitter for sure...JMO

Posted by: VA Cane | March 06, 2010 at 10:18 AM

>>>>

Haha, great analogy and point about DVDs natural tendencies BUT he's coming out of it, slowly. He actually came up and laid out that UCF RB on the goal-line, remember.

Personally, I think all CBs should play a lot of man-to-man defense in basketball because the skills are very similar and agility is absolutely essential. And you always have to play BALL-U-MAN, you have to know where the ball is at all times and stay on the guy's hip.

And if you get beat THEY SCORE.

THE DYNAMIC DUO

With a career-high eight assists at North Carolina by redshirt-sophomore Malcolm Grant, Miami's rookie backcourt of Grant (104) and Durand Scott (103) have become the first UM duo since 1992-93 to collect 100 assists in the same season and the fourth pair of teammates to do so in UM history.

A TRUE ALL-AMERICAN

Among the best to ever wear the Orange and Green, All-American Tim James (1995-99) followed up a professional basketball career by electing to serve his country. A first-round draft pick by the Miami Heat in 1999, James is currently in the midst of a 12-month deployment in Iraq with the U.S. Army. Hurricane fans can show their support for James on Saturday by signing a special banner located near the main doors of the BankUnited Center that will be sent to him.

DURAND DURAND

Durand Scott is the only ACC freshman that ranks among the league's top five freshmen in scoring (3rd), rebounding (tied for 5th with 6-10 John Henson) and assists (1st). In addition, Scott is the only freshman in the league to have at least one game with 10 points, five rebounds and five assists -- having done so twice this season to tie for eighth-best among all ACC players.

Scott's 29 points at North Carolina is the second-most points by an ACC freshmen this year and is the most points scored by a Hurricane since Jack McClinton's 35 points versus North Carolina on Feb. 15, 2009. In addition, he is the first Miami freshman since Guillermo Diaz in 2003-04 to score 20 points in multiple games in his rookie campaign. It is the most points by a Miami freshman in over nine years -- since Darius Rice scored 31 points versus Virginia Tech on Jan. 10, 2001.

CaneSawMassacre

oooops I thought today was an open scrimmage.....

sorry guys.

VA Cane

DVD is fast...thats it. He is tentative and hesitant to a receiver. He is like Deion Sanders....except he is not as good in coverage.He does not want to hit anybody...a baby..arm tackler, he is afraid of getting hurt, and he sure does not want to hurt anybody with his little love taps. Against UNC...I would rather see him clean that WR, lay him out and get a PI call than lay back. Sometimes you have to send a message loud and clear... I like guys who want to hurt people....My godfather coached D in Oakland...as a young player I went to training camp with him. They had a safety named the Assassin...if we are to get better on D, and get more turnovers, we need players who want to play like Tatum, Reed, S Taylor...punish and hurt people...not Dancing with the Stars guys like DVD...he should have gone to UF with Urban...Ray Ray....now thats a Hitter for sure...JMO

CaneRock

Good to see the defense looking great in goal line situations, The D-Line must be really firing off the ball. Matter of fact, red-zone offense and defense sound like they're doing great...

FightingIbis

Miami needs a kicker with a big leg badly. I hope like hell Hopfinger comes to the U. How many times did Bosher kick the ball out of bounds giving teams excellent field position? Spiller and his kickoff return for a TD?

Make a team start at their own 20 against our Defense is huge.

Lurker

CSM

Wasn't the word that he was going to go to UM on his own dime (his parents). I get the feeling that he had a conversation with the coaches who told him that if he does his job and something opens up they'll get him a scholly eventually. Just pure speculation on my part, though. I think he wants to go the U, if you look at his facebook pics.

I hope the kid does come in and can boom it, because we really need somebody putting it in the endzone consistently. I sweated almost every kickoff last year, didn't you?

When you're young and have no experience it's not an excuse it's a fact. The kids are getting older and are getting more experienced and will be better because of it.

CaneSawMassacre

the problem c.c.c. is there really isn't any scholarship room for him. If he walks on this year and beats out Wieclaw expect to see him packing back to IlliNOISE..hehe

Lurker

If I was a betting man, Hopfinger is a lock. I googled him, found his facebook page and his picture has get him wearing a Miami hoodie and throwing up a U.

My advice: get stronger, stretch, do lots of leg extensions and squats, and practice kicking that ball high and deep and you'll be a valuable addition to the team. Seriously, we win the Clemson game last year with decent kickoffs.

CaneSawMassacre

what's that supposed to mean Cav? that they had a good practice?

they're kinda supposed to have good
==========================================

CSM

Thanks. Couldn't remember the kid's name for the life of me. If he can consistently kick it into the end zone on kickoffs during live game action, give the boy a scholly.

You can point to a lot of reasons we lost the Clemson game last year, but had we consistenly kicked off into the endzone, or close, we would have won that game. I can still remember being so pissed off when Spiller took that low line drive zero hang time kickoff for a TD right before the half.

SOUP

The 10th-ranked University of Miami baseball team lost its series opener to No. 5 Florida Friday night, 7-1, in front of 4,274 fans at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

Miami (6-2) struggled at the plate all night, striking out 15 times while recording just two hits - the lowest total for the `Canes since a one-hit loss at North Carolina April 17 of last season. Florida (6-1) scored four runs in the third and three in the eighth to cruise to the six-run win.

Chris Hernandez (1-1) pitched well early on, but eventually allowed three earned runs on eight hits while striking out eight in six innings of work. E.J. Encinosa came on to start the seventh and allowed three runs over the next 1 1/3 innings before Sam Robinson and Joe Lovecchio finished the game out for the `Canes.

UM's pitchers fanned nearly as many as the Gators' staff recorded on the night, finishing with 14 strikeouts - the staff's second highest total of the year

Zeke DeVoss and Yasmani Grandal had UM's only lone hits. Grandal had the most successful day at the plate for UM, finishing 1-for-2 with a pair of walks.

UF starter Alex Panteliodis (3-0) held the `Canes without a hit until the top of the fifth, and left the game allowing just one run on two hits while striking out eight and walking two in 5 2/3 innings. Nick Maronde tossed the last 3 1/3 hitless innings and struck out seven for his first save of the season.
