usagainstheworld

okay,

i have sat with this-- for a while now. ya'll know i've been one of the folks asking questions and most of you have said that the contract extention was not an issue-- that it was way down the priority list for the ad and the coach.

well clearly that's not the case-- at least that's they way they're playing it. what do i mean? try this on for size.

you know that our teams in the past played with a chip on their shoulder. shannon's teams have become so gentlemanly that it sometimes seems like we have a bunch of peacekeepers on the field. what if this apparent stalemate between shannon and the administration is a way to get the team to rally for the coach, to get an attitude about not only the administration, but the rest of the college football world??? remember those teams during the 80's? they abhorred the administration-- and they took that energy (and talent) and unleashed it on the football field.

sorry i couldn't resist.

Look like Seantrel's been drinking the snake oil Ed Orgeron has been passing on...Skool

I think it goes way beyond Orgeron... USC has maybe, the deepest pockets in all of college football. If they want somebody, they'll spare no expense to get their man and the dad and the mom and... Did someone say Tennis anyone at the CC?

Ahhhhh, but being able to hang out by the pool catching some late Rays til sundown with a beer is a nice tradeoff.

CGNC - i haven't seen Shutter Island yet, but just seeing that crazy looking old lady that is almost bald in the commercial that does the "shhh" move to Leo DiCaprio ... she freaked me out, and that was only 2 seconds


DZ8 - I have no idea, I think maybe he was already getting charged with that crime before and also is going to get charged with this one as well.

Here's a nice description of some of the things these scumbags did

http://www2.tbo.com/content/2008/aug/21/212300/deputies-arrest-man-wanted-apollo-beach-attacks/


Rolled into the restaurant at closing time, robbed the employees inside of cash and a computer, raped one of them inside the restaurant, then left. That was just one incident


You ever see "Training Day" when the 3 wise men are sitting in the steak restaurant, when Denzel comes in to talk to them? One of them tells the story of how a criminal used peanut butter in a certain place on his body and during the sentence the judge was handing down, reached down, scraped the peanut butter and then licked it - so he could get the insanity plea? Then Denzel said, hey, the guy worked the system, did what he had to do to get out and he did get out. Then one of the 3 wise men said that if he ever saw that guy on the street, that he'd just take him out himself?

These three scumbags need that done to them as well. And no, I wouldn't blame you for not losing sleep at night if all three of these fine upstanding human beings were to take a dirt nap

Just wow. Why was the kid released from the earlier crime. I'm pro-life in everything but that kid should be locked up forever, who cares that he's 15. If someone did pull a "Dexter" on him I wouldn't lose any sleep.

Montreal - thanks that was great! Coolest game on earth no doubt

Aqua - it is not Pens fans saying that, it is the other teams fans. Malkin's foot is not broken. YAY

Six

86 - that'd be nice. Get Ocala to get in, get out, no questions, business taken care of and one less scumbag walking this earth

I would have no problem going "Dexter" on that kid either .. this kid fits every single description in the code that Dexter lives by and has to use in order to carry out what needs to be done. Usually, Dexter doesn't take care of kids, but given the heinous acts Walle did, he's a complete exception to the code

SOUP

The best way to do that is double-tap to the head, Zombieland style.

Posted by: Canez1 | March 15, 2010 at 01:12 PM

That's "The Lamar Miller" right there. LOL

Six

I'll tell you what kind of people we DON'T need in the world

Someone like Jose Walle. He was just sentenced to life in prison (ya right) here in Tampa, for taking part in the kidnapping and raping of 2 Apollo Beach restaurant workers in 2008. He and two other guys forced the victims into a van and then drove them to a location, holding a gun/knife to their throats while raping them on the drive there. Jose Walle was also previously sentenced to 27 years for another rape in Pinellas County

And of course the P.O.S. lawyer that Walle had said she thought the punishment was too severe. Said she was "surprised" and "disappointed".

That's funny, I wonder if the victims of Walle will just forget what happened after 27 years, like Walle was hoping to get sentenced for - more likely less than that b/c of parole or whatever garbage that helps gets scum like this out early. Na, they won't have mental scars the rest of their entire life or anything, after being duct taped, thrown into a van, raped repeatedly while in the van, having a gun pointed at their head and a knife at their throat, then thrown out of a moving vehicle after the guys were done with them


And now, we have to pay for this guy and hopefully the other two guys, to sit in the prison system? My tax dollars are helping feed and clothe this guy and his friends?

Unreal. The lawyer for Walle might also try and get a lesser sentence by bringing up the 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution b/c it protects against cruel and unusual punishment

Why would that 8th Amenment be brought up by Walle's lawyer?


Because Walle is 15 years old


This is some of the garbage I have to deal with everyday at work in the news room. Stories like this, people debating over it, etc. This kid needs to be put down. Sorry if that sounds "cruel", but to be taking part in acts like this and have ideas like that running through your head at that age? That is unforgivable and even the judge said that "the community needs to be protected from a predator like this" .... uhh, ok. The best way to do that is double-tap to the head, Zombieland style


Hope all that brightened everyones day, ha

Lol Dayton, no we are the world speeches needed.

No one is going to debate which is more important, being a good person or a die hard sports fan. Can't we be both?

Daytoncane

my aunt would always tell me that sports don't pay her bills.

being a die-hard fan pales in comparison to being a good parent or a good person overall.

ask yourself this: Do we need more die-hard sports fans or do we need more good people in the world?

Six

Meph - exactly, run rabbit run

I've always believed in that style of baseball. Aggressive on the bases, get into the head of the pitcher/catcher - even if you do get thrown out. That's one main thing I love about my Tampa Bay Rays, they're not afraid of swiping bases at any time on any count and they're damn successful at it. You also don't have to be that fast in order to steal a base, a smart base runner can get the job done as well. When I see Dioner Navarro stealing bases on major league level pitchers/catchers, I know for sure that any Cane can steal on college pitchers/catchers .... b/c Navarro is quicksand on the basepaths, he's a slug at warp speed

Make the pitcher keep throwing over to 1st to try and pick you off, the percentage of him making a bad toss over there keep going up each time he does it

Steven Ewing has been a nice little surprise when called upon, he's not trying to strike everyone out - he's letting the defense get some work in

If Erickson and Hernandez can get some more run support, then heading into any 3 game series with those two should be a great chance and taking it. Hernandez with 6 earned runs in 4 games started, Erickson with 8 earned runs in 4 games started .... you should be able to win in college ball with that

They have to cut down on the errors. Absolutely have to. I remember calling out Harold Martinez last year for his errors - the kid already has 4 errors ... Scott Lawson as well, esp. being All-ACC 2nd teamer, needs to cut down the errors, he has 3

They're 4-3 against leftys, 6-1 against rightys

They've lost every game they've only scored 2 or less runs in, they're 0-3 in those games

If they score 6-9 runs, they're 4-1 .... if they score 10 or more runs, they're 6-0, as well they should be. If you score 10 runs on anyone you should win

If they're leading after 6 innings, they're 8-0 ... if they're leading after 7 or 8 innings, they're 9-0

In the same regard, if they're losing after 6 or 7 or 8 innings, they're 0-4. They can't handle the pressure of trying to come back late in the ball game. They better reach down and find their huevos soon from the 6th inning on and not go into shut-down mode

j.w.

Sorry , CG, my bad! that's what happens when you read 100+ posts in five minutes.

Aquaman

CGNC, nice win by your Pens. Crosby shook off a nasty hit..

So I guess Seantrel Henderson is good with "whatever violations" are facing USC. Makes me think not much in the way of anything is going to happen to them now. Well that and the fact that is has been how many years since Reggie Bush was there????

Meph...email me at canespace86@aol.com. I have an assignment and also something for you to send via mail.

Mephistopheles

Not a bad weekend on the paths. Every now and then you get a hot pitcher and they shut you down, so Friday's game is not a huge deal. All 3 starters performed well this weekend, and the late innings pen has been quite good.

The defense worries me. A lot of guys in new positions so maybe it gets better as the season goes, but damn.

The starters have been solid but are getting hit the second time through the lineups. Hopefully this is just an early season issue and they will get stronger over time. If the starters can be strong through 5 innings the pen looks sound and the o will put up some runs. I agree they need to protect Grandal in the lineup-he's the big stick this year.

What happened to the running game? Look at the losses-no running game at all the the opponents are having a field day. I worry that Morris only runs when he's even or ahead, but the running game can ignite a team at any time. We heard about all this speed (and the %'s are good) so lets unleash the hounds.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

After leading the University of Miami men’s basketball team to a tremendous run to the semifinals of the 2010 Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament, freshman guard Durand Scott has been named to the ACC All-Tournament First Team, while redshirt freshman center Reggie Johnson earned Second Team honors. The freshmen tandem marks the first Hurricanes to earn ACC All-Tournament team accolades, as the duo helped guide Miami to its first semifinal appearance.

Agreed. But sports can be a big part of someone's life. It is possible to be a huge, diehard Canes fan and still live a functional life. I believe all of us here, the legion, are living examples of this.

Aqua and Cat5, I'm go ahead and agree that its a Canes thing, U wouldnt understand is the more appropriate response but U cant go wrong with other ones

I said its Great to be a Miami Hurricane

if sports is the only thing you have going for you, then it might be time to reevaluate your life.

life is so much bigger than a sports team.

For all of you Fans...

I watched The "Big Fan" last night. About a lonely guy that has nothing going on in his life, except his love for the New York Giants football team... As a fan, he eats, sleeps and dies for the team daily. Living day to day, calling into radio talk shows and discussing anything Giants

Kinda reminds me of me and this thing we call the Space... blogging everyday and how many of us live for the Canes...LOL, sad but true!!! Yeah, face it folks... if you are reading this, I might be talking about you too!!!...LOL.

The movie was alright (but alittle slow) and had a surprize twist in the end that you wouldn't expect, but after seeing it, it makes you think of yourself and how rabbid some of us are about the Canes. I'm not going to name names here but 86, Aqua, six, dat, dayton, shwarma and on and on, and on and on... know who you are... LOL

OK... now that's said... who's got next!

Sounds like Shannon learned his lesson with Patrick Peterson and let Anderson on to the team.

Would we have beaten Duke if Wall chose Miami?

I say yes. Missing the NIT is no big deal, since WINNING the NIT is no big deal. (Without looking it up, who won the NIT in 2006 for example?)

But with Wall, we are NCAA Tournament material.

Oh well, woulda shoulda coulda....

INTERESTING READ ON ANDERSON.. HOW MIAMI GOT HIM... YES, IT'S OLD NEWS BUT WITH CLERITY.


Report: Miami snags DB from WVU

March, 10, 2010 Mar 101:07PM ETEmail Print Share By Heather Dinich

Defensive back Latwan Anderson, who originally committed to West Virginia, now intends to play for Miami, Anderson told SI.com. Anderson is ranked the No. 17 safety in his class by ESPN Recruiting, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that Anderson will join the Hurricanes as a track athlete.

To answer your first question:
No, this will not change Miami's class ranking, according to Tom Luginbill, director of ESPN Recruiting.

"It's another good athlete heading to a program that has no shortage of them," said ESPN.com's JC Shurburtt.

Some of you have asked about Anderson going to Miami on a track scholarship and how this will affect the Canes' numbers.... Miami would not release any information on this:
A) If there was even a football scholarship available for Anderson?
B) How many total scholarships Miami had to offer in this class?
C) If Miami has gone over its scholarship allotment for this year?

Here's what information I did gather from Miami's compliance office via a school spokesman:

Answer... (Non-recruited) student-athlete receiving institutional aid counts as a scholarship athlete in football once they play in a game.
Answer... (Recruited) athlete counts once they practice.

So even if Anderson were to come to Miami on a track scholarship and join the football team as a walk-on, once he takes a snap in a game, he counts as a football scholarship. That's assuming, of course, that he wasn't actually recruited to play football, and the Plain Dealer reported that Anderson only had contact with the track coaches.

Even if Anderson makes his way to the football program through a track scholarship, it sounds like Miami's defense just got a boost.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now everything makes more sense...

I wondered why Miami was so hell-bent to tell THE WORLD that they did not recruit Anderson (No phone calls, or others communication) during last year. Everytime I heard it, it made miami look bad... Now the sky is so much clearer, as if they did recruit him, he couldn't practice without being counted as a scolly...

What Mimi needs, is time to let the waters settle and time to adjust the scolly count, to make room, as needed.. and still practice with the team while getting the count right!...

Randy... smart like a fox!

Aquaman

Wow we didn't make the NIT, that's messed up.

As for music, I'd love if they played instrumental versions of Tupac's Ambitions az a Ridah and Wu-Tang's Bring the Pain. I think kids these days still listen to Pac and Wu-Tang.

Rock U Like a Hurricane is fine - the teams of late have not done it justice. Also need a version that does not sound like it is from some 1950's radio. LOL maybe the admin could spring for a new CD! And get the team away from the heaters!!!

When I hear "Rock You Like A Hurricane", I think of an air show at the fairgrounds and they're blasting that song out of an old boombox into a microphone up in the pressbox

Kind of like Metallica at VT games.

Six - yeah that was just icing on the cake - I mean we didn't even have a good clean version of Rock U like A Hurricane to play. And LOL we were on the Wisonsin side so plenty of them "jumping around". Of course, they were WINNING....

and that is exactly right - "the players could care less" and they played like it

CGNC

Solar U got mail

CGNC - I'll tell you one thing, you saw at the bowl game when they played "Rock You Like A Hurricane", I was even embarrassed for the Canes b/c it just sounded and looked bad. I was hoping the CD machine would break up in the press box. The crowd wasn't into it, the players could care less and it just sounded kinda dumb

Now, when they played that "Jump Around" for Wisconsin, you saw how their entire sideline was going nuts, the fans were going nuts, the band was going nuts .... I don't think House of Pain got that much hype in their entire career

Ya, I have no problem with country music - I just don't listen to it esp. since it's more mixed with pop rock

I like the really old REAL country music like Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Roy Rogers & Sons of the Pioneers, Gene Autry, etc. and the old Texas swing type music ... some Marty Robbins

There it is? Like you said, that is a "scenario".

I've been around basketball my entire life, played AAU ball and high school ball in Detroit...I've seen much crazier "things" happen in games with even less time remaining.

........"AND THERE'S A STEAL BY BIRD!!!!!"

Pun intended.

Old Skool - see, that's cool about the reggae at the baseball game

It's not supposed to pump you up, esp. at a baseball game

You should hear the music they play in the Dominican during Winter Ball, it's great


What I can't stand, is hearing something like Kenny Chesney "This Is Our Time" or Tim McGraw "How Bad Do You Want It", being used with football or college basketball highlights for pre-game to get you pumped up for the game

Are you f'in kidding me? Nothing, and I mean NOTHING about that music gets you pumped up

If anyone disagrees, would you want the Canes coming out of the smoke to either one of those songs? Ya, didn't think so

Would you want either one of those songs being played during time outs during Canes football game or basketball game? Ya, didn't think so


It's not football or basketball type music - at all
