CaptO
what I meant was historically Miami doesn't blast out of the gate in the first qtr and put opponents away
That is why I think crap teams that hung around thought the were going to beat us, and some did.

Freshman Jordan Haden leaves Gators
Associated Press

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida safety Jordan Haden, the younger brother of Cleveland Browns rookie cornerback Joe Haden, has left the team and intends to transfer.

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5468302


I think that's 3 or 4 now for UF that have transferred.

Ungar

360, he was more of a Miami Dolphin fan that joined the bandwagon than a real Canes fan, as far as I know.

Now, THIS guy was a real Canes fan from the old days, even stayed on the field with the cheerleaders.

BTW, during the search, I saw that facebook has a challenge going for the Um, FSU, and UF fans to see who will be the first to 100,000 fans. Those of you on facebook, do your part!

Ok J12. Go ahead and print this out and hang in your locker. You sir, did not make the list:

Jacquizz Rogers ahead of J-12 huh? lol

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Solar, yeah, I gotcha. But I'd say the reason is still the same, although when Turf Face and Jitters were here their class status didn't matter.

Ungar

Now you are REACHING. U have officially used up your 50% for today. Back to UM sports...

Posted by: SOUP | August 16, 2010 at 03:41 PM

The sad part is, I wasn't joking.

Oh well....

BTW, Tales from the Miami Hurricanes Sideline By Jim Martz combined with Cane Mutiny: How the Miami Hurricanes Overturned the Football Establishment (or "The U" in book form) By Bruce Feldman are both must reads, IMO.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Ungar, it should take UF all of four days to reach that number. True uphill battle for the U with this. haha

Ungar

Solar, where did you grab those numbers? I want to see if we really did run up the score in the 1980s....

Practice report
by: Steve Gorten August 16th, 2010 | 1:31 PM

Since the media is only allowed to watch the first 10 to 15 minutes of each practice, UM officials put out a practice report of highlights (Note: They are not my observations). I’m going to try to post them regularly for those who are interested. Make of them what you will.

Here’s what we have from this morning provided by UM:

— WR Travis Benjamin had one of his best practices of camp, catching a number of long passes from Jacory Harris, Alonzo Highsmith and Spencer Whipple. Benjamin caught a pair of deep passes from Harris in 7-on-7 and third down drills and a pass from Whipple down the right sideline for a big gain.

— DE Marcus Robinson stood out on defense. He had a couple of sacks and at least four QB hurries.

— RB Damien Berry and TE Chase Ford each scored touchdowns in red-zone work.

— Berry and Lamar Miller each broke off a long run on the outside during blitz drills.

— Jacory Harris hooked up with several different receivers on deep passes, including Benjamin and Kendal Thompkins.

— Whipple hit Benjamin and Ford for big gains.

— LBs James Gaines and Sean Spence each broke up a pass.

— DB Jared Campbell recorded a sack in blitz drills.

— DL Marcus Robinson had three quarterback hurries in a five-play span during third-down work late.

— DB Cory Nelms had a tackle for a loss, DE Allen Bailey had a quarterback hurry and DL Micanor Regis made several stops on runs up the middle.

Offense Shines in First of Two Practices Monday

Aug. 16, 2010

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - With fall camp already more than halfway over, intensity continued to rise on the Greentree Practice Fields as the `Canes held their 12th practice and opened their second two-a-day of camp Monday morning.

The offense had the advantage throughout most of the session that lasted about two hours under upper 80's heat on the UM campus. The team focused mostly on red zone and blitz drills, with Jacory Harris, Travis Benjamin and Marcus Robinson among the individuals who stood out.

Join the Carnivale

On the final Saturday before the start of the college football season, make sure you spend your day at the first-ever `Canes Carnivale taking place Saturday, Aug. 28, in the Basketball Field House and H-100 parking lot at the BankUnited Center on the UM campus in Coral Gables.

The event, which runs from 10 a.m. through 1 p.m., will feature a variety of activities for fans to enjoy while interacting with their favorite Hurricanes' student-athletes from all UM sports. There will also be a number of other entertaining things to do, as well as food and drinks for all to enjoy.

Let's Talk Ohio State
Do you want an exclusive lunch with head coach Randy Shannon on the week of the highly-anticipated game against No. 2 Ohio State?

Here is your chance... The Hurricane Club and Coach Shannon have joined forces for the latest It's All About the U Speaker Series event. Shannon will be the featured speaker at Timpano's Chophouse in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday, Sept. 7 from Noon to 1 p.m. That's just four days before the most anxiously awaited non-conference game of the 2010 season.

Travis Carries the Offense

Junior wide receiver Travis Benjamin had one of his best practices of camp Monday morning, catching a number of long passes from Jacory Harris, Alonzo Highsmith and Spencer Whipple. Among his receptions were a pair of deep connections from Harris in 7-on-7 and third down drills and a pass from Whipple down the right sideline for a big gain.

M-Rob Does His Thing Defensively

Travis Benjamin's performance Monday morning might have been rivaled only by junior defensive end Marcus Robinson, who had to be the defensive star this morning. Robinson consistently worked his way into the backfield, picking up a couple sacks and at least four quarterback hurries. Robinson, who has eight sacks and 15 tackles for a loss in his career, is one of a number of talented players along the Hurricanes' defensive line.

Offensive Highlights

- Damien Berry and Chase Ford each scored touchdowns in red zone work.

- Berry and Lamar Miller each broke off a long run on the outside during blitz drills.

- Jacory Harris hooked up with a number of receivers on deep passing patterns, including Travis Benjamin and Kendal Thompkins.

- Spencer Whipple also stood out, hitting Benjamin and Chase Ford for big gains.


Defensive Highlights

- Kevin Gaines and Sean Spence each recorded a pass break-up.

- Jared Campbell recorded a sack in blitz drills.

- Marcus Robinson turned in a stretch of three quarterback hurries in a five-play span during third down plays late in the session.

- Cory Nelms had a tackle for a loss, Allen Bailey had a quarterback hurry and Micanor Regis had a number of stops on runs up the middle.

Academic Success

Overall University of Miami Athletics has an 86% Graduation Success Rate (GSR), the highest GSR ever and up from 82% in 2009. 83% in 2007 was our previous high.

University of Miami head football coach Randy Shannon has the highest Academic Progress Rate (APR) score among all head coaches in Bowl Championship Series Conferences. The APR was established by the NCAA to measure the success or failure of collegiate athletic teams in moving student-athletes towards graduation.

136 University of Miami student-athletes had a 3.0 GPA or higher following the Spring 2010 semester.

I'm not much of a book reader per se, but I've been wanting to read Mutiny and will add Tales. Does this mean I lose my Cane Card? LOL

Do you know if there are audio versions for these books that I could listen to while we drive from the 727 to the 305 for games?

See, I would normally make a joke about the irony of the spelling of genius, but I am on orders to stop for the day.

But yes, I do consider you a genius, you survived the WYPT, that's good enough for me.

SOUP

360...Workin' HARD for his money! Nice work today buddy. U got your reps in for sure.

360...here's the deal: U send me a mailing addy and I'll send you the book Cane Mutiny to read. I have a copy that is making its way around The Space. I lent it to Old Skool to read and he just sent it back to me. So it is ready for its next temporary home.

Email mailing addy to: canespace86@aol.com

360Cane

I'm just "flyin' around" the internet! Email is on the way SOUP. Thanks!

Ungar

My favorite site for gathering info is football.stassen.com combined with James Howell's database. I have "known" internet-wise, the guy for almost 30 years, and he really takes his college football seriously.

Great analysis of the preseason mags, for example, which saves me lots of money....

He reccommends Phil Steele's magazine.

http://preseason.stassen.com/review/phil-steele.html

BTW, Phil Steele has us finish in the Top 10, so that's good news....

Solar said....."That was for elliot and fran lest the get the swollen head lol"

Solar splain me that statement plz.

BTW relay my best wishes to Mrs Solar for a speedy recovery from her prospective surgery.
I would be healed and running around whooping it up if both my knees had been done 9 months to go till the stents are seated enough for the surgeon & cardiologist.

"Does this mean I lose my Cane Card?"

If you don't mind reading on the screen, the entire book Tales from the Miami Hurricanes Sideline is here online.

That combined with SOUP's library copy will earn you the card. Oh, and you don't lose it, it just gets a hole punched in it.

As you can see, mine has been with me a while.

Ungar

solar, I see that Stassen is #17 on his list of links, which also include Howell's database.

VERY COOL WEBSITE, my stats greed just got a boost....

Paging Mr. Anderson...

Ungar, no doubt about it. Essential for all Canes.

BTW...I was able to get a 10% discount on food at Smokey Bones for all of you, pre and post game time if anyone is interested. You have to show your room key to get the discount, and the group name will be CANESPACE of course. Let me know if you are interested and of course, you have to stay here to get the discount!!!

SOUP

HamptonCane...we love Smokey Bones Restaurant! We went there last year to eat and had a blast. Great food, great bar and plenty of TVs with sports on.

MattInNY

I am hearing that Chris Hernandez has inked w/ the Red Sox. Don't know the particulars of the deal yet but really this is no surprise.

elliott

I hope Shannon is not ruining our depth by causing our players to beat the living crap out of each other. Byrd going down and now u guys mentioned Fortson being nicked up too? I remember Shannon saying in 2008 that he worked the boys way to hard the week of the GT game and then we collapsed in that game and ended up looking awful. Here is to hoping Shannon keeps the depth right the last thing I want is to lose someone three weeks before the season starts.

360Cane


Byrd pulled a hami? I hope it's not serious. Those can be a bytch to heal.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 16, 2010 at 03:29 PM

He had a MRI today. Stay tuned.

@elliot

U must of missed that deleted scene from "The U" where the players weren't even aloud water breaks. They hid ice and things like that.

Trivia: who said, "games were easy because we practiced so hard"?

All Hail Coach Shannon!!!!!!!
Thank you Sir

solarcane

Hi fran,
I was just kiddin you and elliot 'cause you two have hit the lucky #1 spot quite often lately.
I happened to be typing on the last blog and noticed a new headline, so I just "boinked" it like old times.

Thanks for you support of mrs solar, I appreciate that coming from a man that realizes what she is going through.

solarcane

ungar,

I didn't say I could spell genius, I just implied I am one.

Then again a genius would probably hit the spell checker before he posted.

I'm glad you liked that site It will guide you to some really obscure but fascinating stats.
It's the stuff Six and I live for.

solarcane

hershey,
I didn't forget you brudda.
I let my phone die and didn't have my charger in my truck.
I'll call you tomorrow for sure.

canechic

Ugh Eli just got drilled 3 x's and blood everywhere. Wow!

HersheyCane

Solar,
All good, just got in from meetings all day..looonnnngggg day. Staying at a hotel near Cinci. Told the OSU people we are here to dominate come Sept. 11. They think we don't have a chance.

CANES

HersheyCane

Manny says Byrd probably only has a bone bruise.

solarcane

Here is a stat sheet that compares where teams were ranked preseason and where they actually ended up.

Much to everyone's chagrin you will note that Boise State is the most underrated team since 1989, no matter how we try and spin, dilute or dismiss them.

The Canes meanwhile can thank the 06,97,95,and 93 editions for not coming close to their preseason ranking, bring the Canes into the highly over rated category.

We are just about to change that one though.

we have them right where we want them, seeing 110,000 Buckeye fans crying is going to be priceless.

^^^^^Preseason Giants vs Jets^^^^^^^^^^

Eli got nailed and cut on forehead.

canechic

Capt he was hit so hard by a Jet defender, that his head hit the helmet of another Jet defender and a huge gash ensued causing lots of blood. Right there on live TV and it is just preseason.

elliott

So my boy Udonis Hasleem gets pulled over for dark tint and then police proceed to search his vehicle not once, or twice but three times before finally finding marijuana. Also police found less than 20 grams on him, wow..Whoopdie freakin doo, our taxes at work ladies and gentlemen. Udonis is so dangerous that he would have raided the 711 later that night in effort to buy out all the Doritos and Snicker bars.. Please again if anyone knows there rights they will tell U that if a officer conducts a search with a K-9 and the dog does not find anything the first time around, there is no plausible explanation for the cops to continue to harass him if the dog failed to pick up a scent the first time. What a waste of money.... Also a sign of racial profiling..... Dark tint, nice car, rims = black/hispanic decent and possible drug dealer...That is what they believe....
