« Will The 2010 Miami Hurricanes Remind Fans Of 2002? | Main | Canespace Catches Some Rays »

August 14, 2010



Different matchups....teams with better and more weapons...VT for example is much more dangerous than OSU. Ponder is a much better QB than Pryor.

Time will tell.


The University of Miami football team registered another preseason Top 15 ranking as the Hurricanes enter the 2010 season ranked No. 15 in the Sports IIlustrated preseason poll. The `Canes are already preseason ranked No. 10 in the ESPN.com College Football Power Rankings and No. 13 in the USA Today Preseason Coaches' Poll.

The `Canes, who are coming off a 9-4 campaign in 2009, open against Florida A&M on Sept. 2 at Sun Life Stadium.

The Hurricanes return a number of key student-athletes to this year's team, including All-America cornerback Brandon Harris, All-ACC defensive end Allen Bailey, kicker/punter Matt Bosher and linebacker Colin McCarthy as well as junior quarterback Jacory Harris.

Again, six teams that the Hurricanes will face in 2010 are ranked in the Sports Illustrated Preseason Top 25: No. 2 Ohio State, No. 10 Virginia Tech, No. 13 North Carolina, No. 14 Georgia Tech, No. 16 Pitt and No. 25 Florida State.



Practice No. 10 Saturday morning for the University of Miami football team saw the `Canes challenging each other to be better along with head coach Randy Shannon who wanted his players to be sharp coming off their first two-a-day Friday. The Hurricanes worked for nearly 2 ½ hours on the Greentree Practice Fields taking more time working on 11-on-11 drills from third down blitz , inside run and red zone action.

The Hurricanes have another 8 a.m. practice session Sunday morning before holding the second two-a-day of camp on Monday.

Upperclassmen Continue to Lead

As has been the theme for much of camp, older more experienced players have taken the time to coach up the younger players. During last Saturday's Season Ticket Holder and UM Employee practice, there was a moment when redshirt junior safety JoJo Nicolas and junior cornerback Brandon Harris had freshman Kacy Rodgers on the sideline showing him how to read certain formations.

Today's practice saw senior linebacker Colin McCarthy taking his turn. McCarthy was approached by junior Jordan Futch, who needed some help understanding a defensive call to make sure he was doing his job properly. McCarthy, the most experienced player on the defense since coming in 2006 when head coach Randy Shannon was still coaching linebackers, explained to Futch where he needed to be.

Thanks for sharing UMike. Glad Marve learned his lesson and is getting it done in the classroom. I saw Marve play in high school and thought he was very good. When Marve showed up at UM, I was happy because he was a clear upgrade over Wright and Freeman. But, Jacory is a better QB for UM's pro style offense and Marve did not want to stay, study and compete.

When Coker was coach, UM players who cannot win a starting job transfered to Memphis. Now, UM players who cannot earn playing time transfer to elite football programs like USC or Purdue.

Its a testament as to how good Shannon and Co. evaluate, project, recruit and develop talent in Coral Gables. Coaches from elite programs want our third string players.

"When Coker was coach, UM players who cannot win a starting job transfered to Memphis."

I could forgive Coker even that -- IF the players who DID win starting jobs had been better.


On the recruiting front... I guess the Wilder kid from Tampa Plant is going to announce his choice this week. I have to believe he is being recruited by the Canes as a linebacker because he runs a 4.65 40 yard dash. I mean, how fast does Alan Bailey run the 40? Don't think Wilder could break the scout team lineup at the U at tailback with 4.65 speed. He will probably end up at FU since Urban has looked at him with a straight face and told him he would play rb for the gators.

caniak aka true cane

I am up in tampa today surprisingly there are alot of canes fans here. on my way back to PSL


86 - alright ... like I said, I'll give you a call around 12:20pm tomorrow to see where you guys are

You'll see a little Honda with a "U" sticker on the back windshield zoomin up to you

Like I said, if you guys are bored, you can stop by the station after the game for a few minutes to see the toys I get to play with - it's about 10 minutes away and on the way back to Orlando, right off 275

You can follow me if you want to the Fruit Dome & we'll take a different way to get to Lot 2 where there probably won't be as much traffic

I nailed the 6 spot - as usual, ha

Why hasn't my UM 31 OSU 13 been vaulted?

Posted by: BEERicane | August 08, 2010 at 07:41 PM


I previously looked at national champs over the last 10 years and noted that ay least 3 of them (Okla., LSU and Fla.) had 3-4 losses the year before winning a national championship. I think this team is poised for a special BCS run. The tough schedule actually sets up nicely for the Canes to make a good BCS bowl.

I think this is the year we also see the benefit of the hire of the Whipple in his second year with this group. We will see remarkable progress where he puts up points like he did with UMass, about 35-40 points per game. This Canes team will make their own legacy, unlike any we have seen before. I see a series of BCS runs for years to come. The Canes are loaded in a way that I have not seen since the early 2000s, and NFL scouts will make regular visits to Coral Gables just as they did a decade ago. NFL-U is back on track.


Who can tell me what happens October 6, 2012?

My bad six, i had a lil miss count. It's the pre season and the henny snuck up on me.

Soup, I havent really gotten a feel for Athens yet. Been to busy running around getting stuff ready for school. The one thing I did notice is that there isn't any CANES gear within a 50 mile radius of this place.

Bastard! U are correct, again...

Roger that! Just wear your Canespace gear.


Monty...why don't U come to the Clemson game and go rafting with us? Free room and board at Solar's place and I'll thrown in a FREE ticket?


I might be down for the Clemson game. Gotta see how the semester shapes up.

Canespace gear? I don't think that I have any Canespace gear. I can email you my new addy and you can take care of that for me




Urban Meyer–Color Me Gone!

By: Thomas R. Smyth—August 14th, 2010—4:15 PM

New York-Rumors are running rampant that University of Florida Gators Head Football Coach Urban Meyer has been in highly secretive meetings with Gator school President Bernie Machen and Athletic Director Jeremy Foley in recent days discussing his immediate departure from the Gators program…again!

After the University of Alabama battered the Gators in the SEC Championship game Meyer on December 26th, 2009 abruptly resigned citing physical health problems, while many believed those problems were really mental health issues. At the time his daughter Nicki, 18, hugged him and said, “I get my daddy back.” He then stunningly turned around offering a plethora of disturbing reasons for his dubious actions and decided to rejoin the team.

It is believed that Machen and Foley are trying to convince Meyer to stay onboard through the October 16th Mississippi State game, which is followed by a two week bye, that will allow the new head coach to take the reins who is believed to be Gator Offensive Coordinator Steve Addazio, a lightly regarded replacement.

Florida has had numerous legal problems with 28 players arrested and the recently announced wide ranging NCAA investigation into the Gator football program. It is that very investigation that has those in the know believing that is the reason for Meyer’s decision to leave the program.

We will be updating this story when warranted

Anybody heard about this? Any validity, I wonder?

HersheyCane, I couldn't find that on ESPN or other sites, so it is likely a rehash of his previous breakdown story.

Old Skool

Looking forward to the shirt Soup,

Off to the 813 tomorrow.

I think VT would be the game I would most like to come down for, am I staying at your place?

Great news on the WYPT shirts, thanks for taking care of that project!

I'll be calling you about using your guy for some RC Masonry shirts and the 2011 WYPT stuff.

I am out of Atlanta and back at the Mossy Creek Canepace satellite office.

Email me and tell me what I owe you for a couple WYPT shirts.


I was surfing the web and ran across this article. I thought it was a fair article from the opposing media about us, and I thought I would share it with the space. I don't agree with the analysis but it is interesting to see what they are thinking.



are you staying at my place for Clemson, and the river trip?
Either or both is fine just let me know.

I'm looking forward to hanging out again, let me know if you are staying here or with the Jumping Goats.

Anybody else that is interested in staying here for Clemson and the whitewater, or just Clemson

email me at:
[email protected]

The later you wait to make up your mind the better the chance you will be sleeping in my barn instead of inside by the fireplace lol!



I want my T-shirt to say F**K DA WORLD, LOVE DA "U"!!!

c3-- baby brother is working on it. says he doesn't have a copy but he knows where to get it. please stand by.


CoCane lol! great to see you back my brudda!

man, DTX, darC, Zakee, the boys are back in town...


Well I never left town. I'm just back on da blog. Lol... What's been up with you? Where's my man Captain optimist?


I been fine Co,
Capt O has been busy explaining how the 2010 Canes are actually the 2007 Canes he told us would destroy college football as we know it.
Sooner or later the Capt is going to be 100% correct, and I think he might be dead on this time.


Yeah... I got a good feeling about this years team too. I say 12-1, ACC champs & BCS bowl. NCAA will find a way to snub us out of the title game. Leaving some poor high profile victim to suffer the wrath... What say you?



Here are some of Chipper's sweetest swings.
What a class guy on and off the field.



me too.
I said 11-1 and a bowl win this year a while back.

I think we win the ACC end up in the top 5 in the country.

I think next year if Jacory stays we win everything.

'87 Canes

PARMAN, the arrogance of that dude on that article is enough to make me wanna puke! I hope we go up there and wear their a$$e$ out.
