DZ8...U ready for a riddle? According to a few sources here are the RUMORED silents:

1. Sometimes U have to let things go, like water under the bridge.

2. One player has similar last name to a former Hurricane WR.

3. One is not a famous golfer like Tiger, but he is king of the jungle.

4. I am fast and tall and never get stuck in the muck.

5. I am from up north and my last name is the opposite of "lose".

6. I am a MLB from the great State where Andre Johnson now plays pro football.

i know 1..is teddy..4..is kelvin..and the last is that white mlb from texas..

Matter of fact if I remember correctly Wilfork was on the the Miami Track & Field Team also.

dz

yea, I guess it's the football player mold you are using to compare guys

Vince Wilfork is built like a football player too... in a way.

But isn't that what makes Usain such a freak? The fact that he's built like a football player?


Just being a contrarian solar:)

I've seen LA run (first hand) up here in Cleveland and he's a blur as well. We're getting faster and faster.

Zakkee

Its gonna be one on one coverage in the horseshoe all day. Their CB's will be coached up and ready for The Jets. There's only 2 ways they stay with our Jets: 1) If our o-line fails to protect Jacory (I'm not banking on their d-line not being NFL players, we've ALL watched dudes who are now car salesmen, science teachers etc..sack our QB's the last decade). Its up to us...not them. 2) If their CBs are coached better technically than our WRs. With a successful pass rush and technically sound CBs, they'll be fine. We can't let this happen.

I don't think we'll be able to run until the pass is a success. If you were playing UM..why wouldn't you pin your ears back and attack when all you've seen is tape of teams being successful at it for 65% of last season's schedule. They're gonna come. Our old friend Etienne Sabino will lead the charge. Go Canes!

solarcane

zak,
good points on other teams with less talented players being capable of playing against our superior talent.
I think we see our coaches really doing their jobs this season.
They are aware
The too young, too scrawny, too injured stuff isn't gonna fly with a bunch of Jrs on the field.

Capt,
I DO agree on Spiller being one of the best track football guys ever. That one is for sure

^^Lol!! "AJ not so much"! I didn't understand what you meant either Soup.

Cav, their DL isn't on par with their 2002 DL, but is our O-line up to par? Thats my concern, because I witnessed many teams find ways to get to Jacory last season, notably: UNC, V-Tech, and Wisconsin. Have we improved physically...FOR SURE! Everybody across the nation knows this but the question is and what they're banking on is: Are their athlete's coached better than ours? Are we coaching up these guys? Is the technique there? Teams have been competing with our superior talent by teaching their inferior players better techniques and then those players buying into the schemes and that leads to confident play. We need both to win a national championship. I think it comes together this year and/or next.

I liken OSU's 2002 win over us (besides Terry Porter's help) to some of the lady tennis players strategies against the Williams sisters over the years. Just return the ball inbounds, ground strokes, no unforced errors. Thats what Tressel does. He just gets the the ball back thru good technique (field position; he always has the best punters and kickers). He wants you to try to hit a winner or homerun; he's good with long rallies and base hits even if he strands runners. No unforced errors. Wait for the other team with the pressure to try a winner...thats it. We need to and will hit those winners on Sept 11th..to Byrd and Blur up top.

solarcane

NOW I get it Capt

Other people in the stands saying You guys look like football players.. thats what makes it special LOL!


Here is the whole who gives a fk who you look like sledgehammer.
This is gonna spoil a whole lot of football built guys vs 160 pound guys points of view.

The FASTEST MAN IN THE WORLD is
6-4 198 pounds.

Have you ever once heard anyone say man that Usain he must be a football player.

ridiculous

solarcane

soup no sweat, lol!

Nobody on here got what you meant.

There was a unanimous wtf is he talking about since the very first time months ago you posted Lamar was the only atlete that looked like a football player running track.

You said it then as almost an excuse as to why he got smoked

He is plenty fast enough to take the ball all the way in football fo sho.

He even boasted no one is going to catch him from behind this season.
I liked that, He is confident.

All you needed to say then or now was your #5 and you would have been right on target.

5. If you can bulk up for football and weigh 205 AND still run almost as fast as the fastest track athletes that weigh 170 then THAT is really saying something.

The fact you are still going to get beat by 165 pounders regulary is physics not determination.

Andre Johnson and Storm Johnson come to mind as guys that can run pretty swiftly while looking like football players.
Aldarius Johnson not so much.

Rays lose, again 8-5 to the White Sox.

Mephistopheles

Six, could not agree more about the extra outs, and I agree that pitching can get you out of problems caused by the D. Pitchers have to learn that you pitch differently with RISP than with a clean slate. Even though the bench is calling the pitches, its up to the pitchers to locate and induce the ground balls to get out of the inning.

Keep in mind that they are starting 5 freshmen in the field. The DP combo is frosh-frosh and are one of the best in the country. The outfield is athletic and speedy.

Having said that, there are simply too many errors on the routine plays, and with a young bull pen, these mistakes are magnified.

As for not winning a meaningful series, I agree and disagree. Of course you're right-we haven't. But in nearly all of those games we had a lead late, including several blown saves in the 9th.

Based upon the past performance of the bull pen, no chance for Omaha. Based upon this team's overall talent, I'd say they do.

Of course it does. That's why BH said when they, the UM football players, go to track meets everyone says, "Oh you guys must be football players."

If you're a football player running with or smoking track stars, you are a seriously fast mofo, like CJ Spiller or Bo.

For us to have a top-3 4x100 relay team full of football players says a lot. And next year, when the competition to get on the 4x100 is as intense as getting on the field in football, that's when we'll know Hurricane Football is back where it's supposed to be.

Lebowitz

"Errors are part of the game sadly, but pitching is where you are able to absolutely control the game and stop the bleeding at all cost"

Agree 100%

Six

Meph - I think we've talked about this before and you even brought it up ... they need the Turtle back in a bad way

Recruiting, and help with pitching/fielding

They have a good chance to get out of their Regional, simply b/c of what might be perceived as some kind of home field advantage (even though unless you're the home team at your stadium every single game, there's no real advantage) and the fact they have Dartmouth and FIU ... but that's about it

They're not going back to Omaha

The most impressive series I think they've won all year was when they swept North Cackaclacka at home those 3 games, back in mid-April

Other than that, they haven't taken a series from a decent team

The stretch from the end of April to the first week of May, where they beat the following:

St. Thomas, USF, swept 3 games from Maryland, then beat Barry for 2 games - that's not impressive at all .... how so? B/c the next 3 games, they go up to the ATL and get jacked up by GTech 2 out of 3 games

Then they barely hang on to beat FGCoast, beat UVA in 11 innings the next game and lose the next two to UVA to lose the series - at home

So, in their last 9 games at the end of the season, they're 3-6 .. I'm not counting the W against FGCoast b/c that's a glorified scrimmage, and the Canes barely hung on to beat them 5-4 with a walk off in the bottom of the 9th

I look at a team at how ready they are by how they perform at the end of the year against decent competition, b/c come Tourney and Regional and Super Regional time, you're not going to be seeing the Marylands, the Barrys, the St. Thomas's, the FGCoasts

A&M might pose a little bit of a threat, then again, they were the 4 seed in the Big 12 Tourney and they just got hot at the right time, as well as Baylor the 6 seed, for both of them to play in the Big 12 Champ Game

The bully for the Canes right now seem to be pyromaniacs on the mound - instead of coming to put fires out, they're just unloading tanker sized amounts of gas to it

Absolutely unacceptable what some of those guys have done, when they've come in

I've said since Day 1 of this season, that the Canes have got to cut down their errors and how much I hate them - but even then, how many errors really have cost them games

Ya, Grandy threw a ball into left field last game with a runner on 3rd, and that runner scored b/c of it ... but unless an error gets an opposing runner to 2nd with decent speed, then the pitchers should be able to get around it

Unearned runs are a pain in the ass, I truly believe that - but also, the pitcher doesn't have to give up the hits to get that unearned run in either

Errors are part of the game sadly, but pitching is where you are able to absolutely control the game and stop the bleeding at all cost

You team committed an error behind you? You have the ability to bail them out by winning every pitch ... and it's not like the Canes have a bunch of frying pans out there on their hands, ya, the majority of their errors have been on throws, not fielding it. I hate excuses about how a pitcher has it in the back of his head that if he does throw ground balls to his fielders, he's afraid they might commit an error

At this level, being at a school like Miami, these kids aren't exactly Junior Varsity - it's extremely rare to see someone commit 2 errors in a row, so the pitchers and fans should never have that excuse to fall on or use if the pitchers "feel" like they might be afraid to let the other team hit and have their D get the outs

That scenario to me, is exactly like what Ungar and I were talking about the other day with Cubs fans blaming Bartman

The Cubs still blew a ton of chances to win the game - that one play is not the reason for them losing. If a Cane commits an error, there are or were still plenty of chances to not lose the game b/c of it

We'll see what happens with the Regional and then maybe the Super Regional ... but to me, JD and the assistants are on the hot seat

Posted by: solarcane | May 31, 2010 at 11:41 AM

Solar...I am simply amazed at how your contrarian point of view offten leads U to miss the target so completely.

Here is what I meant:

1. There are some football players that run track and some track athletes that play football.

2. Generally speaking they have two different body types with track athletes being much thinner and lighter (less body mass to move) than fotball players.

3. It is easier to run fast if you are built for running fast: mostly tall, light, thin body type and use completely different workouts, diet and weight training.

4. It is harder to run fast if you are bulked up to play football, especially RB as compared to WR, and your workout, diet and weight training are geared towards developing a footballl player versus a track star.

5. If you can bulk up for football and weigh 205 AND still run almost as fast as the fastest track athletes that weigh 170 then THAT is really saying something.

Get it? Got it? Good!

On the list.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Nelms has the slowest 100m time out of the 4.. He wouldn't be on the team if Lamar wasn't out..

Nelms' specialisty is the hurles.. Talke to Vette in canesport. He is the resident track expert.. Trust me he is pumped about all of our guys, but he thinks if it were not for certain circumstances, that Nelms would not have been on this team.

Either way Nelms was a part of the record breaking team. And he will participate in Nationals, they are not changing it now if Lamar is healthy..

The only thing that p*ssed me off was that UF beat us on that heat.

They had Demps and Rainey.. Then two TRACK STUDS... Demps carries the football raines. Rainey wouldn't even make our squad.

Posted by: CaneSawMassacre | May 30, 2010 at 07:48 PM

No worries. We'll be the fastest team in CFB by mid-season, esp. if JD qualifies.

The fact that UF had two track stars and the one track star we had would probably not have been on there were it not for Miller's injury, only illustrates the point.

Zakk, there's a whole bunch of confused, shiftless, hustlin' people in ATL. I don't use those euphemisms.

The OSU game will be very, very interesting. If they run blitz they'll learn two things very quickly.

#1 Jacory and the Jets and Whipple are better prepared to handle blitzes than Dorsey.

#2 Their 2010 DL IS NOT their 2002 DL.

However, I think we'll be able to run the ball on them. Iowa's OL and QB were the strengths of that team, not the speed or elusiveness of their WRs and RBs, and they handled OSU rather well, all game long.

OSU hasn't faced a team as big and fast as ours arguably since USC whooped them.

They have ALL the hype. We'll be completely under the radar, even with the FAMU game. Tressel will have NO tape on a large chunk of our players on both sides of the ball.

Meanwhile, OSU is an open book.

Perfect Storm conditions.

Mephistopheles

Six, with all due respect, UM deserved a Regional. They are top 10 in the RPI's and won 40 games against the top rated schedule in college baseball according to multiple sources.

We've all seen the flaws in this team, but they played a monster schedule and I think are a dangerous team IF Erickson is ready to return.

They make mistakes in the field, but at times can be incredible. The O is solid with enough power to compete in the post-season. I'd like to see them start running again but I don't see it happening. Nevertheless, they are a very fast team.

Pitching is sound. I know we're an EKG machine at the end of the game, but the talent is there (albeit youthful) and the starters (with Erickson) can compete with most teams.

It looks like we're bracketed with the Gators so if we leave the Gables I may be able to see them in G'ville. Regional comes down to A & M who won the Big 12 tourney but had an up and down year.

I'm not predicting a CWS appearance, but I would not count them out. They are very talented and are battle tested. Remember, despite the losses, they've led a lot of games that got away late. They are good, and if Miranda can figure things out, like we've said for a month, they can beat anyone.

GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

"This will be the difference. Canes have more speed and playmakers and more mature player leadership and coaching this year will ensure that the playmakers are put into positions to make plays."

certainly the consensus #17 will win the National Championship.

Speed to "fill the lanes?"

I guess you were doing other things instead of watching Wisconsin FLATTEN your secondary. Can u say UNDERSIZED?

Flags was a good movie, esp. about Ira Hayes .. would've been very interesting to see just how he was really treated by the US soldiers - Eastwood barely touched on it with the whole "redskin" type jokes & analogies they'd use with him

The other movie though that Eastwood filmed dually with Flags, was "Letters From Iwo Jima" - and I thought that was a lot better than Flags

Simply b/c it was told from the Japanese perspective, when they knew it was basically a lost cause they were about to fight in defending that little island - but how they prepared for it, the honor among them to the point of insanity and just how well they held for a bit when they were immensely outnumbered

If you've never seen "Letters From Iwo Jima", you gotta see it

Miller is F A S T, but The Blur is a B L U R!

Of course they are completely different body styles and players. When I saw Miller run in the FHSAA State track meet in Winter Park in 2008 he was the ONLY runner in the 100M dash that looked like a football player. The rest all looked like track athletes, especially Debose.

I'm jus sayin'...

Happy Memorial Day

Just finished watching the movie "Flags of our Fathers" about Iwo Jima directed and produced by Clint Eastwood.

Lol, Zakkee it wasn't me... I just saw somebody post it on another site and I brought it here word for word

Zakkee

Let me correct that: There's alot of gay men and women in Atlanta period. all Atlanta men aren't gay of course, I have a cousin who lives there...sorry!

Zakkee

Thats good stuff Doc Ibis! Thanks for sharing and please continue to do so.

Go to the beaches in Clearwater. I've been there once and as me and my brothers were leaving the beach, all we heard was honking and honking. We never looked up because many cars lined the lot and we were strangers so we knew we didn't know anyone there. Until, about three different cars full of white guys pulled up on us and said the same thing, "hey bros, the girls are honking at you guys not us!!" Apparently the caucasian women in Clearwater have a special affinity/interest for black men?? Thats what the all the white men said. As far as Atlanta is concerned....MAN! Its many beautiful women there, and if you're a God-conscious, good, hardworking, *heterosexual* man with any sembalance of swagger...you should have your way there. All the men are gay there, so its slim pickings for ATL women. You must be careful though, because alot of these "big booty sistas" you refer to have slept with these "down low" homosexual men and you know what can be the result of that calamity. Be careful..go Canes!

Travis is the fastest guy on the field and on our track team....

solarcane

"He is not as fast as Miller point blank."

but Travis Benjamin is


But one day, whether on the track or football field, redshirt freshman running back Lamar Miller says he is going to catch Benjamin.

``I've raced Travis twice and both times he's beaten me,'' said Miller,

CaneSawMassacre

I LOVE NELMS and felt he earned his football scholarship..

I hope he even works himself into DB rotation..

but...
but..
but.

He is not as fast as Miller point blank.

solarcane


csm,
I agree you can't knock Nelms because of the fact Miller is a rocketship.

Nelms made it as a walk on player and through guts and dedication won a scholarship

Lamar made it in on his ungawdly speed and well deserved press clippings.

Lamar can outrun Nelms but he sure as hell can't out hit or out tackle him.

They both are important parts to our success

CaneSawMassacre

And I answered Amy Dean the track coast knows that Lamar is faster in the 100M. That is why he was part of the team originally..

Nothing wrong with Nelms he is fast.

But Miller is .1-.3 seconds fasters in the 100 and this kid is a true freshmen> But no KNOCK on Nelms..
1. Still a solid speedster ( NO Olympiad but he he is great)
2. He is the ULTIMATE TEAM PLAYER... I mean ultimate
3. His special teams hit vs OKLA was one of the biggest plays of the season. The whole team fed of his enthusiam

solarcane

doc ibis that's a good post.

And it is exactly how most of the folks in North Georgia think about Miami being about to dominate again.

Miami gets a lot of respect from Georgia fans, both GT and UGA.
I am in a Canes ball cap at least 10 hours a day up here, and I get the U flashed and Go Canes at least once or twice everyday.

Found this from some guy on scout:

Im moving to Clearwater, Fl on June 10th to run a health club there, but I'm working at X3 Sports
in Marietta, GA. Anyways, I met the ga tech strength coach who's a member of x3 sports. I just asked
him a couple of questions on the yellow jackets and the ACC in general.

He told me 1st that the yellow jackets right now doesnt have the personnel for the 3-4 scheme.
Said Johnson wanted the 3-4 scheme even before hiring Groh.
Also that the wr from lithonia that is taking Thomas spot isnt mature to be dependable like Bay Bay.
That the Ga staff thinks that Va Tech and Miami are not just the strongest teams in the Coastal,
but the entire ACC.
I asked about FSU and he doesnt understand how people are picking the Noles high and
he kept talking about how the program had alot of drama and it wont get fixed in one seasopn.
He also says alot of people dont know if Jimbo Fisher is the guy for FSU.
Told me that Va Tech weakness this yr. is passing game and Foster filling spots on defense,
remember that Foster did think about leaving for UGA.
He's friends with Pat Nix and Nix told him that the players that Coker left is night and day compared
to what Shannon has brought in and that Shannon deserved more props than what he gets.
Kept talking about how on the way back from losing to Miami that the team kept saying that
it felt like they played the Dolphin's compared to played Miami in atlanta the year before.
Was hoping this years game in Atlanta is cold,lol
Said UNC is all defense and will drop 2-3 games because of points, if they're down 10pts, you got em.

We spoke for about 20 minutes and he's cool people, and I'll get more info speaking with him before
I roll out for Clearwater. You peeps on here that live in the Clearwater/Tampa area need to let me
know where that fine ass ladies at, because when I tell you Atlanta is full of pretty big booty sista's
everywhere, that's real talk. So I gotta see some bad ladies when I move. Later

CaneSawMassacre

Oh

and Sling... You can call me C.S.M.

You said I don't know who said that. Just keeping you updated. I think your posts are awesome and well thought out.

CaneSawMassacre

Nelms has the slowest 100m time out of the 4.. He wouldn't be on the team if Lamar wasn't out..

Nelms' specialisty is the hurles.. Talke to Vette in canesport. He is the resident track expert.. Trust me he is pumped about all of our guys, but he thinks if it were not for certain circumstances, that Nelms would not have been on this team.

Either way Nelms was a part of the record breaking team. And he will participate in Nationals, they are not changing it now if Lamar is healthy..

The only thing that p*ssed me off was that UF beat us on that heat.

They had Demps and Rainey.. Then two TRACK STUDS... Demps carries the football raines. Rainey wouldn't even make our squad.

SlingBlade

i dont know who is saying that...but i remember nelms running sam shields down in the bowl game...just to get a block in the back penalty called against him..

CaneSawMassacre

Sling - everybody is saying they would be even better if Lamar Miller was running for Melms....

Its crazy to think they could be faster next year if everybody is healthy and JD can take up the speed that DVD will leave.. (Or can anybody think of somebody faster? Latwan could be in the mix... Anybody else?)

GREENSBORO, N.C. - In the final day of the NCAA East Preliminary Round, the University of Miami Hurricanes saw Cory Nelms and the men's 4x100 Relay break school records and a total of nine student-athletes advance to the NCAA National Championships, Saturday at Irwin Belk Track.

"I am very proud of our teams this weekend," said Director of Track and Field Amy Deem. "Everyone stepped up and competed extremely hard."

Cory Nelms' senior season has been his best. In the national quarterfinals of the 110m hurdles, the Neptune, N.J. native set a school record in winning the first of three heats with a time of 13.65 seconds.

Nelms had already advanced to the NCAA Championships earlier in the day, as a member of the 4x100 relay team. Running the first leg, followed by DeMarcus Van Dyke, Travis Benjamin and Brandon McGee, Nelms and his team broke their own school record - placing third in the third and final quarterfinal heat at 39.57 seconds.

"The men's team breaking two school records en route to the NCAA National Championships is a huge step in building our men's program," added Deem.

Ti'erra Brown set a school record on Friday in the 400m hurdles as she advanced to the national championships. On Saturday, she advanced to Eugene in the 110m hurdles, as she ran the second-best time of the day in the quarterfinals in 12.76 seconds.

"Our weekend was highlighted by the hurdle performances, adding to the great hurdle tradition here at Miami," said Deem.


After the women's 4x100 narrowly missed out on advancing to Eugene, the 4x400 team of Tameka Jameson, Brown, Takecia Jameson and Charlene Fuller ran a season-best 3:34.33 - moving on to the NCAA National Championships in the last event of the East Preliminary Round.

With her second-best effort in the triple jump this season at 13.14m (43-01.50), senior Deandra Doyley secured a spot at the national championships, after coming up just short in the long jump on Thursday.

In all, Miami will send 11 student athletes in eight events to the NCAA National Championships to be held in Eugene, Ore., June 9-12.

Funny thing was I thought this kid was kicked off the team indefinitely. Funny how sweater vest found a way to secretly bring him back on the team.. What was the punishment beeing kicked off the team during his redshirt year LOL:::: I'm sure he learned to never get caught selling grass by his school again.. "Come here bad boy" let me slap your hand.

With a more experienced Ray Ray and VT at the safety position, I am not worried about the Canes DBs getting "flattened" at the horseshoe or anywhere. Then, you add the speed at the CB position with DVD, Harris and McGee, we have three legit sub-4.4 on the edges to track down those much slower OSU receivers.

The Canes have a strong and deep DL to dominate OSU's weak to avg. OL. Canes lack a little depth at LB, but if the starters are healthy, OSU will have difficulty scoring unless Pryor can make a few plays with his legs.

Silents from Buffalo

"This will be the difference. Canes have more speed and playmakers and more mature player leadership and coaching this year will ensure that the playmakers are put into positions to make plays."

certainly the consensus #17 will win the National Championship.

Speed to "fill the lanes?"

I guess you were doing other things instead of watching Wisconsin FLATTEN your secondary. Can u say UNDERSIZED?

Ronald Powell and Chris Dunkley Tim Jernigan.

2010 Hurricanes - the fastest team in college football.

The Canes v. OSU showdown: Aside from everything you guys have mentioned, I think big plays will make a big differnce. If they Canes play solid (no turnovers or missed assignments), disciplined football, the Canes ability to make big plays and to prevent big plays with their speed will also be a key.

The ability in the running game to take a simple hand-off and break a tackle or make someone miss at the second level.

In the passing game, yards after the catch will be key - take a simple out pattern or hitch and take it to the house.

On defense, the speed to fill the lanes, to catch Pryor, a RB or a WR before they break a long run or to have make-up speed to break up a pass.

This will be the difference. Canes have more speed and playmakers and more mature player leadership and coaching this year will ensure that the playmakers are put into positions to make plays.

SOUP

bg1906 will get it for sure.

DZ8...U ready for a riddle? According to a few sources here are the RUMORED silents:

1. Sometimes U have to let things go, like water under the bridge.

2. One player has similar last name to a former Hurricane WR.

3. One is not a famous golfer like Tiger, but he is king of the jungle.

4. I am fast and tall and never get stuck in the muck.

5. I am from up north and my last name is the opposite of "lose".

6. I am a MLB from the great State where Andre Johnson now plays pro football.
