Fighting Ibis

When will they learn that the more control of these games they give these officials the worse it going to get

At least we dont have to worry about the officials being bought off or even gambling on the games themselves

It's amazing how easy it is to understand when it comes to football but when it comes to big government some people are ok with government control.

Show me a rule in any sport where it's a judgement call by a ref and I'll show you some power hungry punk who came up with it.

So many similarities between sports and politics.

So where does the genocide play it's part in football?

DZ8 - that's exactly why I said it took some big stones in between Crist's legs to do what he did

If he's going to get vilified by his own party for vetoing a bill that he thought needed to be, due simply to the fact that it made sense to veto it b/c he actually listened to the voice of the people - then I'm with him on telling the peeps in his party to go f*** themselves

After talking with him while he was at our station, you can tell he's really not sweating over losing some backing of the Republican party. He can run as an Indy and still pull votes - that guy is no dummy. Rubio has the backing of Giuliani and Romney - they endorse him over Crist ...... wonder why though, is it b/c Crist backed McCain? Nahhhh, that can't be it


You gotta love this as well:

"Officials at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which had previously endorsed Crist, tell Fox News if Crist bolts the party they will immediately back Rubio and “spend whatever is needed to help him win in November.”

Spend whatever is needed to help him win in November. Gotta love that. This country is so jacked up politically and has been for a while. Got money? Will win.

We air so many political ads on our station - it makes me hate the guy after seeing his mug, smiling, putting the thumbs up, saying he endorses the message, all that garbage

No more eye black messages

I can live with this one, that shyt is getting lame

No wedge blocking on kickoff returns

I can live with Bosher living another season

No taunting en route to the end zone

If they have to use instant reply to check the expression on a players face to determine if he's sticking his tongue out I'm done with football.

Six my point is he ALREADY lost the Republican support before he vetoed the bill. And if he jumps to indy of course the RNC will support the republican in the race, thats their job.

If I ever make it to Tampa I'll take you out for some beer and tacos and we can discuss further:)

it's missing Rohan

Esteban

in that UNC game from last year two of the INTs were off of passes that were tipped at the line of scrimmage if my memory is working today. and one other was a pass that both the safety and LaRon Byrd had an equal chance of catching - would figure the 6'4, 220 lb, WR would be able to at least make sure its an incomplete pass. i'd say only 1 was all on Jacory.

its like when our guys used to fade back on hook routes instead of coming back to meet the ball and CBs would take one step forward and get an INT. we'd get mad at the QB, but the WR should have come back to the ball cause if he did it would have been a catch instead of INT.

Esteban

on Charlie Crist...i don't think it was having balls. he knows he had no chance of getting re-elected if he didn't veto the bill. his last chance of getting re-elected is to parlay that veto as a stand for what's right. won't get the Republican parties support but republicans who are teachers in the state will appreciate it. independents who are teachers might be open to vote for him - still doubt it though. same for dems. basically tried to erase people's memory with one veto and who knows he might have done the trick. its really his last hope of getting that senate seat.

either way i'm glad he did it. i am not necessarily against pay for performance, but not when u combine that will removing class room caps and other things that will only make it more difficult on the teachers to be effective.

roachcane77

Been away a couple of days... great article Soup! (Nicely done.) Gotta tell ya, as I was making my way catching up reading through the blog I was wondering myself when someone was going to comment on your research? (I totally get your consternation BTW.)

I think 99% of our '09 problem was... wait for it... the OL! (I know, I know, nobody here can believe I would say that... Me, the alum who took 6 months off this blog when I was so pissed at our poor OL recruiting 2 years ago... hard to believe I would have any beefs about our OL... but there it is... again.)

Look at most of those INTs... maybe 75% caused hurries, scrambles, and "previous" injuries. Granted JH had some really bonehead throws, and actually probably should have had about 10 MORE interceptions that were dropped by defenders.

The defensive INTs will take care of themselves this year with our Dline stepping up. I have REAL good feelings about D this year... we're going to PUNISH teams!

I also agree with Solar, Whipple seemed to lose his mind a few times along the way which didn't help JH's stats either.

Anyway, gotta run... nice job 86... can't wait for August.

Let's Go Canes!

THANKS SOLAR

THERE IS A NEW REGULATION OUT THERE (PROTECTING AGAINST CONCUSSIONS) THAT SAYS SOMETHING LIKE THIS: IF A PLAYER LOSES HIS HELMET DURING THE GAME, THEN THE PLAY STOPS AT POINT... WHETHER ON OFFENSE OR DEFENSE

CHECK OUT BETWEEN VIDEO ABOVE 8:30 AND 8:46 MARK... ON THE HIT!!! ^^^^^^^

TALKING ABOUT KILLING THE GAME OF FOOTBALL... THAT RULE WILL BE THE BEGINNING OF THE END AND WE MIGHT AS WELL PLAY TOUCH BALL!!!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SPEARING IS ANOTHER... U CAN NOT USE THE CROWN OF THE HELMET TO TACKLE IN THE OPEN FIELD... I UNDERSTAND SPEARING ABOVE THE SHOULDER PADS AGAINST A QB, BUT WHEN A OFFENSIVE PLAYER LOWERS HIS HEAD AND SHOULDERS AND A TACKLE IS MADE AT CHEST LEVEL... THATS GOING TOO FAR, WHEN THE DEFENSIVE PLAYER IS GOING FOR THE BALL/FORCED FUMBLE OR A SURE TACKLE!

SPEARING TO ME, WAS MEANT FOR PLAYS LIKE WHEN THAT GUY (RILEY) MADE A TACKLE ON QB, BRENNAN OF HAWAII, THAT CAME CLOSE TO KNOCKING HIS F@KING HEAD OFF...

NCAA cracks down on dangerous hits

Published: 09/09/2009
By Mike Mullen

New rules could see suspensions for players who lead with their helmet.

In the last five years, the NCAA has enacted a series of regulations in an attempt to cut down on illegal helmet to helmet hits, referred to as “spearing.” These hits, where a player lowers his head and propels himself into another player, are often dangerous and sometimes fatal, both to the player receiving and the one delivering the hit.

In February, the NCAA supplemented the existing rules which govern illegal hits. The NCAA Football Rules Committee first encouraged referees to more frequently eject players who have violated the rule.

This season, illegal hits will undergo a mandatory review by the offending player’s conference, which may then choose to suspend the player. A further regulation, one which is troubling to some coaches, allows the conference to review plays which were not even signaled as a foul during the game.

“That’s a little unsettling, to me,” says Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio . “You’d think that if the officials didn’t see it as a flagrant hit, that it wouldn’t be called after the fact.”

Both Dantonio and Michigan’s Rich Rodriguez expressed some trepidation about the conference reviews while enthusiastically supporting any effort to keep players safe.

Dantonio and Rodriguez both said Big Ten officials visited their teams before the season and played video examples of hits which are illegal. Players say knowing the rule is one thing, but following procedure in the heat of the game is another.

“You’re not going to lead with your head all the time, but if you make a little helmet to helmet contact, you just hope you don’t get in trouble for it,” Gophers linebacker Simoni Lawrence said. “You’re just trying to play football; you’re not trying to hurt anybody.”

The review process can be set off by a tip from a coach, referee or someone inside the Big Ten office.

Bill Carollo, the Big Ten coordinator of football officials and a 20 year veteran as an NFL referee, said while the suggested penalty for an illegal hit is one game, technically there is no upper limit on the length of suspensions. But Carollo said a suspension will only come on those plays which go well beyond the bounds of football.

“Where I would say intentional would be, the play’s over, and the guy totally spears the guy helmet to helmet, launches with the crown of his helmet,” Carollo said. “That’s intentional, that’s targeting. That’s trying to punish, and to me that’s black and white.”

I'M HOPING THAT THEY REVISE THER STANCE ON STOPPING THE GAME IN PROGRESS AT POINT OF LOSSING A HELMET...

I CAN SEE ALLOT OF PLAYS BEING BLOWN DEAD BY A DEFENSIVE PLAYER LOSING HIS HELMET WHEN THE OFFENSE IS GOING TO SCORE A TD IN THE LAST MINUTE OF THE GAME.

MAY COMMON SENSE PREVAIL!!!

There is really only 1 thing the team must do. They must play every game like its their last. They come out VERY unmotivated sometimes. If they play every game the way they are supposed too, we will be just fine and everything will take care of itself.

From www.hurricanesports.com:

Head men’s basketball coach Frank Haith announced the signing of 6-5, 220-pound forward Erik Swoope (North Hollywood, Calif.) to a National Letter of Intent to play men’s basketball for the University of Miami.

Swoope averaged 21.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.5 blocks per game as a senior at Harvard-Westlake, converting 74 percent from the field and 71 percent from the foul line. An athletic basketball player, he is known for attacking the basket and his ability to finish plays.

The Mission League’s Most Valuable Player and a Los Angeles Times All-Star Team selection in 2010, Swoope averaged 26.2 points over his last six games and scored a season-high 40 points on 14-of-17 shooting from the field – including hitting 12-of-13 free throws – in a win over Notre Dame Prep. It was among his 16 games of 20-plus points, including eight outings with at least 30 points. In addition, he posted 12 double-doubles as a senior, including a 30-point, 21-rebound effort versus South Hills.

Simple enough. I'm with that plan! In the article it points out that especially EARLY in games Miami appeared unmotivated and unproductive.

That will be the key this year: Early production, early lead, strong finish!

The 13th-ranked University of Miami baseball team hit three home runs and took advantage of three North Carolina errors in Friday night's series-opening 7-5 win over the 21st-ranked Tar Heels at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

The Hurricanes (25-9, 12-4 ACC) scored four runs in the first inning and plated runs in four of the first five innings off UNC ace Matt Harvey. The Tar Heels (22-14, 6-10 ACC) battled back, but the `Canes never relinquished their lead en route to the series-opening win.

Yasmani Grandal, who was named the ACC Player of the Week on Monday, raised his batting average to .417, going 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI on the evening. Grandal has now hit safely in eight straight and has 26 RBI in UM's last 15 games.

Harold Martinez had three of UM's eight hits, going 3-for-4 with his team-leading 10th homer of the year. Zeke DeVoss had UM's other homer - a solo shot to lead off the first - while Scott Lawson had a hit, an RBI and a run and Michael Broad added a hit.

UM starter Chris Hernandez improved his record to 5-2 after tossing five innings, giving up five runs with three of them earned. The junior, who scattered eight hits on the night, was also on the mound in Miami's last win over the Tar Heels in 2008.

From Shandel at the Sun-Sentinel:

CORAL GABLES _ As expected, a successful late-season run has raised the expectations of the UM basketball team.

And with expectations, comes attention.
The Hurricanes are already reaping the benefits of advancing to the ACC Tournament semifinals in terms of scheduling. Coach Frank Haith, speaking before the team’s annual banquet, said the `Canes have potential non-conference games lined up at home against West Virginia, a Final Four team last year, and at Syracuse, a No. 1 seed.

UM will also play in the Jerry Tarkanian Classic, an eight-team tournament in Las Vegas. There’s even the chance of facing Georgia, South Carolina or Auburn.
“When you have a team that people think is pretty good, you get TV calling you,” Haith said. “So you get opportunities with TV, which is the case with West Virginia and Syracuse. Hopefully it works out.”

Although the Hurricanes failed to make the postseason, they return two of the ACC’s top young players in sophomores Durand Scott and Reggie Johnson. Both made the All-Tournament Team as freshmen. Their presence is why the national media is likely to jump on the UM bandwagon. ESPN reporter Andy Katz pegged the Hurricanes as a team to watch.

“There’s no question, the way these young guys played at the end of the year, it gives us encouragement going into next season,” Haith said. “There’s reason to be optimistic about what this team is capable of next year.”

“There’s reason to be optimistic about what this team is capable of next year.”

Anybody besides me getting tired of Cane football, basketball, and baseball articles that all end with being optimistic about next year.

When do we just take for granted next year is a lock instead of being a little giddy we might win something?

Didn't you get the memo DZ? Republicans are the only party who support their candidate and spend money doing it.

Didn't Obama just receive tons of money for his presidential campaign from outside the US? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM???

It's time for some real conservatives in this country to take charge. This weak sister middle of the road crap is destroying the country from the inside out.

Bush a conservative? LOL! Yeah right!

Bush is about as conservative as Obama is a centrist.

Esteban - when you have tea party members throwing money in the face of a 60 year old man with Parkinson's, sitting on the ground in front of them at a demonstration and the tea party members are making fun of him and yelling in his face (verbatim):

"No, no I'll pay for this guy. Here you go, start a pot. I'll pay for you." He then yells, "I'll decide when to give you money ... No more handouts!"

And starts throwing $1 Dollar bills at him


They're not doing themselves any favors at all. F'in idiots. How'd you like a family member of yours with Parkinson's to have a bunch of people, 2 feet away and then right in the face of your family member - screaming in their face, mocking them and then throwing $1 Dollar bills at them.

Perception goes a long long way in this country. When that video went viral, a wholeeee lot of people got a bad taste in their mouth about the tea party.

Hell, just look at how many people still call the Canes, Thug U.


Cat 5 Cane

Nice to see... U guys coming around to my list. Gander at #3

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
1) Starts with Jacory. He must make better decisions and not lock on to one player, whether he is open or not.

2) Oline play... The #1 reason why Jacory rushed his throws or got hammered... Look no further the WISC.

3) We were good last year but Better D-line, DE and LB play... allows more aggressive play from CB and DB's, which leads to more INT's and turning 6 around.

4) More production from Special Teams... Panz still isn't off my list.

DZ8

Six didn't you just read what Esteban wrote?

"i do feel bad for them though. lots of infiltrating going on right now of tea party groups. trying to make them look bad in the media."

Let's say that those are "legit" tea partiers doing that to that Parkinson old man, etc... Does that make them all bad? How many Bush is Hitler, Abort Palin signs were at demonstrations in the very recent path? Did that mean all the demostrators were nuts?

I'm sorry you have a family member that has Parkinsons but what was that guy doing there? (I haven't seen the video) If he is going to go to a rally of ANY kind he is making a political statement and his condition should have nothing to do with it. Unless he is using that condition as a political prop. JMO

Six

Also, on Crist, if he didn't veto the bill, then he'd still have the backing of his party

By him vetoing the bill, it made him look good in the eyes of those teachers

BUT

How many of them actually will help support him in his race? As opposed to an entire party. There's only so many teachers in the state, and there is absolutely no guarantee what-so-ever that they'll vote for him at all. None. A lot of them might remember it, then again, a lot of them will most likely stay true to their party and just say "thanks Charlie for what you did" in passing

That's why I said it took major stones for him to do what he did. Charlie would get the votes from his own party over Rubio if he would've passed that bill. That bill was like a litmus test. It doesn't really matter what the pre-polling says about Rubio holding a 20% lead over Crist

Come on man. Where exactly is this "pre-polling" going on and just how many people are they asking, where are they asking and when are they asking

It's like playing Family Feud with Richard Dawson just yelling "Survey Says!" and telling you that people they asked gave them a certain answer. Nobody really knows until election time. Print and electronic media can tell you all they want about who's leading the polls right now - it's complete BS

We run polls almost every night on our newscast or station website and post the results of a hot topic issue as part of the show. A poll could say 80% in favor of something, 10% opposed to it, 10% not sure.

What does that really tell you? Nothing. Know why? B/c there could be only 10 people who were bored enough to take the time to actually get on the website and vote so we can show the results.
