does Sam Shields get a pass on his arrest because he's a Cane? i bet he does.

i wonder what the reaction would be if it was a UF player?

Posted by: Daytoncane | March 20, 2010 at 02:41 PM

Nope, no free pass. In fact, unlike some players up north that get to play in their bowl game after a DUI, I GUARANTEE that Sheilds will not play another game for the University of Miami. Is that a strong enough reaction?
or was that too subtle... ;-)




So Bryce Brown leaving UT was old news then?

Bud Foster

Bud Foster contacted about UGA defensive coordinator post

By Marc Weiszer - marc.weiszer@onlineathens.com

Published Monday, December 14, 2009
Buzz up!
Georgia football coach Mark Richt said prior to facing Virginia Tech in the 2006 Chick-fil-A Bowl that the Hokies under defensive coordinator Bud Foster "just get after it," and "their defense is better than most in the SEC, if not at the top."

Now, Foster says he has been contacted by Georgia about the opening for its defensive coordinator position, according to Virginia Tech assistant athletic director Dave Smith.

Foster earns $402,000, according to a salary survey by USA Today. That’s about $75,000 more than former Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez made.

“You know, I'm in a win-win situation the way I look at it,” Foster said before the Hokies played in the Orange Bowl last year. “I work for, I think, the best head coach in college football. I've been with Frank (Beamer) for a long time. You know, I get paid well. I've got a great contract. I've probably got a head coach's contract as an assistant coach. That's part of it, too. The grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Va. Tech moves to lock up Bud Foster with annuity payment in 2014

By Darryl Slater
Published: December 15, 2009
Updated: December 15, 2009

BLACKSBURG -- The powers that be at Virginia Tech have made it clear again that they will do everything they can to keep Bud Foster as their defensive coordinator, while preventing other schools from hiring him.

Foster, who had been offered Georgia's defensive coordinator position, reached an agreement with Tech yesterday that would result in him receiving a one-time annuity payment if he stays in his current job through the 2014 season, Athletic Director Jim Weaver said.

The amount of that payment will be disclosed after the holidays, once "other details" are worked out, Weaver said.

The agreement does not affect Foster's current contract, which this year paid him $402,000, according to a USA Today database of college football coaches' salaries. Foster has a five-year rollover contract, which means the length of the contract is extended by one year after every season, so it always remains at five years.

The new agreement will pay Foster $800,000 in deferred compensation if he remains employed at Virginia Tech through the 2014 football season. Should Foster leave prior to the end of the 2014 season, he would not receive any part of this deferred package.

The only other qualification to the 2014 date is that in the event Frank Beamer resigns or does not continue in his position as head football coach, Foster will receive the deferred compensation with the effective date of Beamer’s departure.

Foster's take on his contract situation

Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster has it made and he knows it.

There are some coordinators out there who make more money, but when it comes to the complete package, "I've probably got the best contract in the country," he said. The recent annuity, he said, was just "icing on the cake."

He's right. And while it's not a coach-in-waiting agreement, it's a definite vote of confidence, and that's enough to satisfy Foster.

"Foster has a five-year rollover contract, which means the length of the contract is extended by one year after every season, so it always remains at five years."...

Now that a contract!

Shields leaves campus for a couple of months and loses his head. Goodness gracious.

How many Cokerites left??


From www.hurricanesports.com:

The 11th-ranked University of Miami baseball team clinched its second straight Atlantic Coast Conference series on Saturday, cruising to an 11-3 victory over Duke at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

The `Canes, who won 3-1 on Friday night behind a complete game two-hitter from Chris Hernandez, improved to 4-1 in league play and 13-5 overall with the eight-run win Saturday afternoon. UM will look for the series sweep Sunday at 1 p.m. in the series finale.

Harold Martinez led the `Canes at the plate, finishing the day 3-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored. For the second time on the weekend, he homered over the famous "Blue Monster" in left - bringing his team-high homer total to six on the year. Scott Lawson also had another big day at the plate, going 3-for-5 with three runs scored while Zeke DeVoss and Yasmani Grandal each has a pair of hits.

The Hurricanes totaled 15 hits on Saturday, good enough for the second-highest hit total by Miami this season. UM's 11 runs scored also marked the team's seventh double-digit scoring game this year.


Canechic...went to see the Lightning play the Caps tonight over in Tampa. That Ovechkin dude is as good as billed. He scored one crazy good goal that should be on ESPN and almost had two more. His shot is quick and deadly.


CC - I see Angry was playing COD not that long ago....heck, he may still be playing, LOL.


'Nova and kansas bite the dust? There goes the bracketology!


Posted by: Chris | March 20, 2010 at 10:06 PM

Chris good stuff there. I was wondering when I saw his name that D. Clemente looked familiar, but I thought it was pronounced "Clement" and he now goes by "Denny" , just never connected the dots.


Former Miami Hurricane, Denis Clemente (relative of Roberto Clemente) is playing right now in the KSU-BYU game. You all may remember Haith kicking him off the team in 2007 for violating team rules....He's a fifth year senior for the wildcats and looks impressive. He was that point guard we were looking for during the 2008 - 2009 season that should have culminated in a sweet sixteen birth for the canes (McClinton, Graham, D. Collins, et. al)....

Anyways, here's are some excerpts from a recent article to tell you well he's been faring at KSU:

"To describe their college careers, you could use words such as mercurial and momentous for Denis Clemente and steady and surprising for Jonathan Rodriguez.

Clemente, a 6-0 senior point guard who leads Kansas State in assists and is second in points, was named the Big 12 Player of the Week twice in a three-week span last month.....

The insanity began Wednesday night, when Clemente's Wildcats, 24-4 and ranked fifth in the nation, played at No. 2 Kansas (27-2), which has won 58 consecutive home games -- the nation's longest active streak.

Before the game, Clemente, who is averaging 15.8 points and 4.1 assists, said: ''It's going to be hard, but what game isn't hard in the Big 12?''....

However, Clemente was blazing fast and had a game that translated well. He was a scoring point guard, and few doubted he could do his thing against big-time college competition.

Clemente was an immediate standout for the Hurricanes, starting 28 games in his first two years, twice erupting for 24 points.

But then Clemente faced adversity for the first time in his career. He was dismissed from the Canes after he broke unspecified team rules. Gone was everything Clemente knew and loved: tropical weather, a Spanish-speaking community and a basketball team to call his own.

Clemente went through the recruiting process again and chose Kansas State, largely because the Wildcats have a coach who knows first hand about second chances. Frank Martin, fired by Miami High in 1998, was willing to give Clemente another shot.

Clemente had to sit out the 2007-08 season as per NCAA transfer rules, and it gave him time to reflect.

''I was immature in Miami,'' Clemente said. ''There were too many attractions there, and I wanted to do what everyone else was doing. I needed to focus and not play around like I did in Miami.''

Clemente struggled with English when he was in Miami. At news conferences, he would mumble indecipherable answers. Now, three years later, Clemente is much more comfortable speaking the language and even is philosophical.

'Everything happens for a reason,'' said Clemente, who used his year off to practice with and against two Kansas State players now in the NBA -- Michael Beasley and Billy Walker. ''Coach Martin helped me a lot. We speak the same language. We understand each other.

''Here, no one speaks Spanish. I had to learn English. It was not impossible.''

Clemente proved that by closing in on a degree in social science. He needs three credits this semester to become the first member of his family to graduate from college.

''It's a dream come true,'' Clemente said. ''I thank God.''

Kansas State fans are equally thankful for Clemente, who was the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year last season and second-team All-Conference. This season, he has helped lead the Wildcats to their highest ranking since they were No. 3 in 1962...."


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

I need K.St. Duke and Mizzou to get to the final 4 for me and all 7 of the final 8 to get in as well and ill still be more then ok

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

Thank Dayton


didn't forget about you either Sebas.

im pullin for you too bro.

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

Northern Iowa played with some serious intentions in their game today

They didnt give a damn who the opponent was. They werent going to lose that game

My last hope is getting my last 3 final 4 teams there and hope my upset points are enough

Old Skool

Thank you. Finally tried some Tony Cocheres tonight on some grilled chicken. It'll now be a permanent part of the kitchen.

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

Thanks for your support everyone

The other thing with those subcription pils they gave me at 1st was that it would make me see stuff that wasnt even there.

It had me acting goofier then hell

My wife would tell me that they would have to call in people to get me back into bed because I was beating the hell out of something that I thought was a guy I guess. Now you know that has to be some serious sheyat to be on.

Presrciption drugs with bad side effects sux azz


Thanks Dayton!


CC my mom had pulmonary fibrosis for years when i was still in grade school living in Atlanta.

it got so bad that the doctors had to put her on all kinds of different medications (including steriods). long story short, she started having hallucinations and impaired judgement. her behavior was that of a person suffering from bipolar disorder, so you can understand how hard it was to have a simple conversation with her.

im keeping you and your family in my prayers. hope your dad pulls through.


I'm going to go vomit now


Sebastian - hang in there brah

My bracket just exploded with Kansas losing

Unreal. A Missouri Valley Conference team that isn't Indiana State with a guy named Larry Bird on it - knocks off the #1 overall seed

I watched Northern Iowa play five or six games this year and I knew they were gritty, could play some defense .... but man, everything that ever could go right for them happened today


I am trying CG :) Nicole just went back to school this morning. I am studying like a crazy woman and trying to do some spring cleaning in between!


Canechic - are you keeping everything in line at the Angry\Canechic household??? Take no prisoners girlie :)


Sebas that is tough, I will keep you in my thoughts!


Sebas - hang in there, I know it must be hard.

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

I dont have to battle through what your father does, but I do have a disorder involving the brain. I had to take many different drugs to help control it. The side effects from some of those pills I had to take were unreal. They finally have settled on the pills I need to be taking daily but its still tough. It was very difficult dealing with those side effects ill tell you that. Not good at all.


Six - I heard that a little rumor that Sam's dad is ex-military and he turned his son straight over to Randy. Also Sam does not get a pass for his behavior but this "War on drugs" crap is on my last nerve. Angry pushes more harmful "legal" drugs everyday. You should see the garbage they were giving my Dad and he was acting like a fool taken that garbage they gave him. Not the chemo but the pain pills after surgery....no lie they were making him crazy!

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

Posted by: Six | March 20, 2010 at 05:42 PM

Made me some good coin off the St. Marys win

I was hoping for a big splash with Murray State, but oh well

So far just 5 losses on my end


Shields doesn't get a pass on here, no way

I voiced my opinion on it at the end of the last blog

Doesn't get a pass ... but does get a puff puff pass


25-7 after the 1st Round in my bracket

I knew I never should've trusted Texas and Rick Barnes to win at least ONE GAME

If anyone chose Ohio over Georgetown, you're either a chick that just chose them on dumb luck or a member of the Ohio basketball team

Hoyas, Okie State, Texas, Temple, Marquette, Siena, Richmond - thanks for letting me down in the 1st Round

I did put some $ on St.Mary's beating Villanova today though - so pretty jacked about that


dayton meant does Shields get a pass on Canespace , because of how everything anyone at UF or FSU does is magnified like it's a serial killing by the numb nuts here.
Those that aren't numb nuts know what I mean.

Cool, I forgot that ATT trains in C.Creek. Very cool and approachable guy.

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

Omar and Shandel should get together and write about Randy and title it

"Why Everything Is Randys Fault"

orange 'n green in the vein

Omar has never rebuilt an NCAA football program at a private school. But he sure does love him some Dolphins' beat money and I guess the alarm clock went off next to his bed again this time of the year so apparently it's time for him to have his cycle.

Fortunately we can now confirm Cav's diagnosis of him as a terminal case.

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

Nice job by the boyz of summer handling Duke


Scott Lawson 3-5 today, 3 Runs, 1 RBI (Triple)
Yasmani Grandal 2-4 today, 1 Run, 1 RBI
Chris Pelaez 1-5 today, 2 Runs, 2 RBI
Harold Martinez 3-4 today, 2 Runs, 3 RBI, (HR, Double)

Those are the 3 - 6 hitters in the lineup, getting the job done

Also nice to see how aggressive the Canes were on the bases today

Jason Santana 5 2/3 IP, 6 Hits, 3 Runs, 3 Earned Runs, 1 BB, 5 Ks, 25 Batters Faced

Canes 11, Duke 3 Final

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

Omar is a tool


Who is Omar?


Omar wants Randy's Head, he does not think that Randy deserves a contract extension. I say extend the man or let him go...


bottom 8 8-3 miami

what happened to shields?


St. Mary's Gaels beat Villanova Wildcats!

Who are Gaels?

The Gaels are an ethno-linguistic group which spread from Ireland to Scotland and the Isle of Man. Their language is of the Gaelic (Goidelic) family, a division of Insular Celtic languages. The word in English was adopted in 1810 from Scottish Gaelic Gaidheal (compare Irish Gaedhealg and Old Irish Goídeleg) to designate a Highlander (OED). Gael or Goídeleg was first used as a collective term to describe people from Ireland; it is thought to have come from Welsh Gwyddel (Old Welsh Goídel), originally "raider", now "Irish person". Many people who do not speak Gaelic consider themselves to be 'Gaels' in a broader sense because of their ancestry and heritage.

What does the SMC Gael logo mean?

The SMC logo derived from the name Gaels is designed in part from the art form most notably, knot work design from the genre of Gaelic and Celtic times. The overlapping of letterforms creates a monogram that symbolizes unity, unity of school, and team. The shield is an element of protection and is one of the symbols of Gaelic warfare.

What does the Celtic knot represent?

Family, Unity, and Brotherhood

What does the shield represent?

Strength, Pride, and Celtic Warrior


Canes 6, Duke 2

Bottom of the third.


Canes 4, Duke 2 third inning. Watch it on Game Tracker here:



I know it's only tennis and nobody cares but beating the Noles is always nice:

Tallahassee, Fla. - No. 13 University of Miami (9-3, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) claimed its sixth consecutive win on Friday, picking up a 5-2 victory over in-state opponent No. 19 Florida State in ACC women's tennis action at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center in Tallahassee, Fla.

Miami began the day at the No. 1 doubles position, using the nation's seventh-ranked duo of Gabriela Mejia and Laura Vallverdu, for an early doubles lead, as the duo laid claim to an 8-1 victory over the team of Katie Rybakova and Federica Suess of Florida State (6-7, 0-2 Atlantic Coast Conference).


Dayton...there's no pass for Sammy. Harvin got the treatment last year and Sammy will get the same. Gotta be smart if U wanna get rich.

Ask SarasotaCane to tell U his "insider" story about SS.


Colonel...I knew that, just wanted to see who was reading! ;-)


does Sam Shields get a pass on his arrest because he's a Cane? i bet he does.

Col. Sanders

Lane Kiffin is Monte Kiffin's son, not brother. Go Canes!


Soup, I'm there. I've been working in Deerfield so I'll definetly be at the game in Boca. I've been talking to Kimbo Slice lately, he's been stopping by the hit factory and we've been talking about the U, he wants to come to a game. I'll try to convince him to come to the game at FAU cause I think he lives in Broward.


From Sports Illustrated:

It's a new day for Texas Tech football. Gone is the wildly popular pirate, who installed a record-breaking, scoreboard-abusing offense and led the Red Raiders to 84 wins and 10 straight bowl games. Gone is the coach who went on a Lubbock TV station to do the weather and gave a freshman dating advice. Gone is the loose cannon whose mouth was so often a liability ("fat little girlfriends," anyone?) and who was fired Dec. 30 following an indefinite suspension while the university investigated his isolating James in an electrical closet after the player suffered a concussion.

In stepped Tuberville, southern to the core with his drawn-out twang and down-home charm. He comes off more politician than football coach, and after their ugly divorce from Leach, he is the perfect remedy for the Red Raiders, able to win over the press, boosters and alumni. As Potts said: "I think it's a general consensus on everybody's part that they're complete opposites."

Tuberville is also no stranger to messes. When he was hired at Ole Miss in 1995, the school was under NCAA sanctions and had only 55 scholarship players. Two years later he led the Rebels to their first bowl game in five seasons and was named SEC Coach of the Year.

Of course, Texas Tech is a different kind of monster. This is not a program in need of rebuilding, coming off its eighth straight season with at least eight wins, which is why Tuberville doesn't intend on reinventing the wheel; he simply wants to add bite where the Red Raiders have been lacking it.

The running game and defense had been almost afterthoughts with Leach's teams. In each of the last nine seasons, the Red Raiders finished in the top five nationally in passing offense, ranking first six times. But in the last 10 years Tech was better than 104th in rushing only once (94th in '08) and ranked in the lower half of the FBS in total defense five times.

Charged with adding more balance to the offense is new coordinator Neal Brown, who engineered a Troy attack that was fourth in passing in '09 and 60th in rushing. He'll be maintaining the core of the Air Raid offense that made the Red Raiders into a slick, fan-friendly show and use it as a way to make further use of the running game, which includes a back with 1,000-yard potential in Baron Batch.

Gotta love athletic depts. and their ability to spend more money than ever for a average team.


Aqua...U going to UM @ FAU in Boca on 4/6 or FAU @ Miami on 4/7? If so I will hook U up with tickets and Canespace gear!
