What happened to the supposed leader we wer getting in JH. The dude needs to get back to basics, film study, ect. I think he has every chance to shine as a QB but the dude needs to mature IMO. Ken Dorsey he aint.

GIVE HIM UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM ALL OVER AGAIN!

Does everyone forget about the Syracuse game with McNabb and something like 66-13 or the VaTech game were we had to put Dorsey in since we were losing so bad. How about Washington in 200. Yeah Kenny D. never threw 4 picks in a game but come on.. This could be a 11-1 season and we are passing judgment after the 2nd game. Kenny needs to call J12 and say, take that newspaper article stick it on the wall next to your bed and use that for motivation every morning you wake up, that's what he did and you saw where that got him in college at least.

You can throw me in as one that rips into Maddon at every chance I get. But I still cheer for and support the Rays

Nice article by the way

Politics- I never discuss
Coaches that moved on- Good luck, except when they oppose the `Canes

I was born into this world a `Cane, im living my life as a `Cane and ill meet my maker as a `Cane

It doesnt matter what happens I dont leave the `Canes. I believe in these guys that put on the Uniform

A TD on this drive would have put us up 14-3 and realled changed the games momentum.
Seemed to be a very good time for some OSU favoring officiating.

Did anybody else notice this. Excuse me if this has already been commented on, I may not have read all posts since the game

Senior Maria Ronderos shot one over-par 73 and the University of Miami women's golf team posted its best score of the three-day tournament to finish up play at the Cougar Classic hosted by the College of Charleston at Yeamans Hall Tuesday.

"I think the girls played great today," UM head women's golf coach Patti Rizzio said. "They improved everyday as the tournament went on. I think they're only going to get better and better as the year goes on. Their attitudes are wonderful, and they've been a joy to work with."

Ronderos continued her strong play Tuesday. After shooting even-par 72 on Monday in the second round, she birdied four times on the front nine to go one-under par 35 before registering a two-over par 38 on the last nine holes. The four birdies was a career-best for Ronderos as she finished tied for 29th.

Posted by: SOUP | September 15, 2010 at 08:26 PM

If I were Wannstedt I would be scheming to lose in a dramatic fashion!

Seriously though I would live by the blitz to beat UM. If you can't rattle Jacory and Co. they will pick you apart. Jacory has not proven that he can handle extreme pressure, so that is the blueprint for beating him until he proves otherwise.

I'm not sure there are many teams left on UM's schedule that can generate the kind of pressure that can rattle Jacory. UNC's players are starting to "trickle" back into the lineup, so they may give us fits when we play them. If all of UNC's players are available they might have the best defense in the NCAA.

Go 'canes!

The Top 5 teams in the country according to the coaches poll remained the same: Alabama, Ohio State, Boise State, Texas and TCU.

The AP's top four - Alabama, Ohio State, Boise State and TCU - remained the same, but Oregon moved up to No. 5 after its blowout win at Tennessee on Saturday.

Miami is the only Atlantic Coast Conference team ranked in both polls.

REMEMBER: Boise will lose the Fresno State.

I'm sticking to what I said the day Randy was hired as HC.
Give him five years then he either has it or he doesn't.
So far hes done some wonderful things and some average things.

I feel the program is moving forward, although slower than a lot of fan's expectations.

The one thing I don't want to see happen is Randy become "Big Game Randy."
Go 9-3 10-2 every year and lose the big road games and bowl.

When we call out the refs over every debatable call against us,why aren't the Sister's of Mercy ball spots in our favor mentioned in the same paragraph too?

SJMPARMAN

I agree Solar. The first five minutes of that game I was like, these refs are trying to make it up to us for Terry Porter. I can't blame the officiating at all for the result.

Here is a GREAT quote by the team's true leader.


This is a Hurricane who wrote on a preseason questionnaire that being a Cane means ``knowing you are the hardest-working, baddest SOB in the nation. Knowing every time you step on that field that people fear and respect you.''


``I love tackling,'' said the 6-0, 205-pound Bosher. ``It's part of the sport, and one reason I wanted to play football. Granted, I play the least contact position on the field, but it's exciting every time I do it.

``I mean, you get to go up and just hit somebody and not get in trouble for it.''

BahamaCane

If U were Wannstedt what would your game plan be?

Posted by: SOUP | September 15, 2010 at 08:26 PM
-------------------------------------
If i were Wannstash, i would force the Canes to beat me on the ground. The o-line is still green as it is their 3rd game together. Take away the pass and make the o-line have to open holes for the RB's.

On 3rd and long i will come with an occasional blitz to put some pressure on J12, but my main focus would be to make the Canes one dimensional.

The flip side of this is the Canes o-line actually played pretty well against Ohio State and the Canes running game was decent. If the o-line holds up against Pitt's front 7, which i am pretty sure they will, then its going to be a long day for Pitt.

Either way, Pitt is going to get bitched slapped by a hurricane come next thursday.

solarcane

Bosher is a natural born killer
The way he got up and chased that dude down was awesome.

SJMPARMAN

Wannstedt's game plan has not changed from what I have been reading in the Pitt papers. He wants to run the ball, avoid turnovers and play defense.

The problem is they have a very inexperience offensive line, he hasn't recruited but one 4 star offensive lineman since 2008, and New Hampshire flat out dominated their offensive line last week in the first half. In the second half, they opened it up, the quarterback played pretty well, and they pulled away.

They have a huge problem with linebacker play, and their secondary is not the strength of the team. Unless they show miraculous improvement in 10 days, they will get embarassed if we run the ball and if, if, if, Jacory does not turn the ball over. Their fans are very uptight about this game, for good reason.

The "U" is America's Team

This just in....J12 just threw another interception to OSU

SJMPARMAN

Oh man, that brought a laugh...I hope Jacory starts to understand the financial impact these interceptions will have on his future. If you are 6-4 and 220, the NFL might overlook some of these errors. When you are 6-4 and 200 pounds, like Dorsey, you have to show some stats to let some GM want to take a chance on you. There is a huge difference between 1st round guaranteed money when your size and weight project (like Jamarcus Russell) and a 7th pick if you are a Dorsey.

What Jacory needs to understand is that every interception taints his NFL prospects. So if you see your receiver blocking on a running play, throw it out of bounds.

The value of "your brand" lessens with every pick you throw. 1.5 interceptions in college ball probably translates to 2-2.5 at the next level. No one will draft you if you average that in your college career.

Herbstreit: UM looks like a top-10 team

> Posted by Joe Rose on September 15, 2010 12:45 PM
ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit joined me on the show Wednesday morning and was encouraged by the Miami Hurricanes' performance againts No. 2 Ohio State in Columbus.

“I looked at Miami and I looked at a team that was physical, I looked at a team that was athletic," Herbstreit said. "I looked at a team that, if Ohio State’s number two in the country, then how can Miami be a team that’s not considered a top 10 team?

"Because, if you eliminate those mistakes, Miami’s playing right there with Ohio State. Athletically, maybe more gifted than Ohio State," he added.

"There’s no reason that this team should not have a chance to win every single game they play the rest of the season.”
_________________________________________

I think I said something like that right after the game and I was criticized a bit. Glad to see more people agree with many of our assessments.

Leading the nation in tackles for a loss. If that is the case by the end of the season, the Canes will have a top 10, big-play defense for sure

I don't see Rocky Top beating UiF, even up in Knoxville

UiF's Defense will carry them through a lot of games this year, just like it has since Corch Irvin Meyers has been there

Both of their national championships under Corch Meyers was won mainly b/c of their Defense ... it's not their Defense that is having the problems on the team

How much do the Crocs miss Dan Mullen?

Until their Offense catches up - their D will be there. Janoris Jenkins shuts down his side of the field. Ahmad Black helps with the other side, while the break in their new DB

Rocky Top got absolutely curb stomped against Oregon, AT HOME

Of course I'm not saying that UiF is like Oregon, but I'm saying that Rocky Top didn't look that great when the relied on their QB Simms to help them out

Only way Rocky Top has a remote chance at winning this game, is to pray that their RB Poole has a Timmy Smith (Washington Redskins Super Bowl rushing record RB) type day and they just eat that game clock up ... pray for UiF to not get into any kind of rhythm on Offense by keeping them off the field as much as possible, due to Rocky Top eating up clock

UiF owns Rocky Top in the past 11 years, it hasn't even been close

Old Skool - it's funny that you said that about looking for technical & production things

When I go home to hang with the parents, they'll be watching the local news .. and so will I .. but we're not watching the same thing. I really don't know what a lot of what is said during the newscast, b/c I'm paying more attention to the production value of it - the lighting, the shot selection, the shot composition, etc

I'll be pointing these things out to them while the news is going on

j.w.

Hey six, great finish to that Rays series! I only caught the end of the game, but the replays of that HBP on Jeter showed a pretty shameful call. Nobody else in the game would get that one.
And soup- good post, amigo. You're going to get rocks thrown at you whenever you start something like this and it sucks. Nobody should question your fan status.

USAFCane

I'm wasn't one of the doom and gloom merchants. I saw enough already, if JH improves we can go undefeated we'll have one one loss on our record heading into the bowl game. I believe as JH goes, the season will go. His focus and determination is key to his improvement. If JH remains the QB he was on Saturday, we're looking at a few more losses. It's a team effort but he's the key.

Jeter used the soccer flop move and it worked for him last night

In the end D.J. and the Rays got the last laugh and won 4-3

Now if that was someone like A-Rod that did that I would expect the media would be eating him alive, but since it was Jeter most in the media are saying they have no problem with what happened on that play

I wonder how many of those on this blog can answe yes to #4 Going to all of the home games? CHECK. & you live 200 miles away!!
I ask How about those who live within 50 miles of Sun Life Stadium
#10 going to 4-6 home games
#11 going to 2-4 home games
#12 going to 1-2 home games
If you are willing to give up beer for 3 hours U can have 2 seats in the family section (EAST UPPER DECK) for about $225 for all 6 games.
My wife and I drive 41/2+ hours to SunLife and I made the mistake of buying in Lower Section 127 great visibility except those in front of us stood or went for beer constantly as did those in our row. very uncomfortsble for 70 somethings to enjoy what we could not see (even on the jumbo-tron most of the time).
We will still be there for 5 more games.

Anybody who watched that game should be able to admit the obvious: we were beaten by a better team. I was a little surprised to find out that J12 and his wideouts were the weak link, but there it is.

Those guys are Jrs. It's really time for the class of '08 to man up.

Posted by: dj moonbat | September 16, 2010 at 10:44 AM

I disagree.

dj moonbat

Whatevs. If you're OK with their growth over the last two years, and OK with fielding a team that just can't win tough road games, that's fine.

Six

j.w. - every time the Rays and Yankees have met, it's been relatively close, esp. as the season has gone on

From the end of July - present, it's really felt like ALCS playoff baseball in each game .... esp. these past 3 here, when the lead for the best team (record wise) in baseball & also the lead for the AL have switched 3 times

You look at the Rays record vs. the Yankees this year so far:

April: 1-2 (at home)
May: 2-0 (at new york)
July - 1-2 (at new york)
End of July - beginning August 2-1 (at home)
Sept so far - 2-1 (at home)

There's been only a few games that weren't decided by 3 or less runs

In July a 10-5 win for Rays and a 9-5 win for Yankees

In April a 9-3 win for Rays and a 10-0 win for Yankees


Sebastian hit it dead on, I even yelled it up at work when watching the game - that Jeter pulled a soccer player stunt, but instead of falling to the ground and writhing in "pain" while grabbing his leg as if he'd had his leg blown off by a sniper like soccer players do .... Jeter acted as if someone had chopped off his hand in some medieval retribution act for stealing

Hey, it worked, it got him on base and then he was part of a 2 run bomb that Wheeler gave up that helped the Yankees take the lead

No one should ever be surprised about Jeter's insane overacting - you just watch the guy when he's up at bat, how he leans wayyy over the plate with his upper body, and if there is a pitch thrown for a strike on the inside of the plate around his mid-section, he jumps back as if he has a cable attached to his back like Pinnochio and someone hooked it to a rocket fueled drag racing car that saw the green light at a race


I can understand his thought process - I guess - about getting on base however he could, b/c he was getting owned at the plate ... he finished 1-4 in the game last night and 4-14 in the series

But it still seems like kind of a Nancy move to have played it up like he did, spinning around, bitter beer face expression, acting as if he'll never be able to use his hand again


If anything, what Jeter did was actually good for Rays fans - b/c it finally got more on board to boo the guy when he comes to the plate and maybe have a lot of fathers explain to their sons at the game about what Jeter did ... and make those sons grow up learning to hate the Yankees

Just like when fathers or mothers that are Yankee fans, teach their kids to hate the Red Sox as they grow up

B4 u crucify jacory, remember the facts: 1 int was because Benjamin didn't know the play. 2 int was because of dropped passes. And even on the one that most believe was his fault was a mistake even pro QBs make a lot; dropping D line men into pass coverage. It is so uncommon that even payton manning will fall for it.

Quad Hill to fight tonight in Vegas. From lvboxing.com

"Hill vs. Banks

Heavyweights Quadtrine Hill 1-0, 1 KO and Yohan Banks 3-4-3, 1 KO lead off the nights fights. Both boxers are former Division 1 football players who took up boxing after their college careers. The weighed in at 228 and 272 pounds respectively. For the first two rounds a quicker Hill used his superior hand speed to tag Banks and snap his head back but was unable to hurt him. Banks would tie hill up every time he got in a little trouble. Hill was getting very confidant in the third when he missed a punch and Banks countered with a right that staggered him. Hill was forced to hang on until the round ended. Hill was anxious to regain his domination in the fourth when he missed another wild punch and ducked into a right uppercut that put him down. Hill was trying to get up when Referee Jay Nady reached the count of ten at 2:24 of the round. Banks gets a surprise KO win and Hill learns that this is not such an easy business. "

dg

Jacory plays "soft" and all of his passes look the same...DBs love that. We know he has an arm so why no fast balls, slants, bubble screens--Whipple ball needs a tune-up. Say what u will about Brock Berlin--he had heart and no one ever questioned that. Jacory(no J12) needs to go see the wizard and show some spunk and lead this team.

carolina cane

J-12 will be fine at Q.B. he just needs to understand when to float a ball and when to gun it. It would also be nice to see the receivers run once in awhile once they catch the ball and that never seems to happen. Ty horn is not the answer at center. Sentrell needs to play now and get Figeroa back to guard or get him out. We left to many points out on the field last weekend. Jacory, it won't hurt you to run 5 or 6 times a game, when no one is open.

Really, it's time to move on and get over the fact we let one get away.

Just wanted to share some thoughts with y'all.

4 years with RS and we still: have no MLB, can't cover a kick or a punt, no QB or LB depth. What happened to all those LB's we signed 3 years ago? Spence has been the only one that has seen the field regularly. And he is a midget, I stood next to the guy at Canesfest two years ago and he was only about 6 feet and 210 then and not much if any bigger now.What happened to strength and conditioning? Look at Bama they have that crazy dude who stands on the sideline all game long holding up 4 fingers on both hands the whole game. He is there S&C coach and looks like he is doing a helluva job. Did you see Richardson the other night? Dude looked like mini Earl Campbell, it took four guys to bring him down every time he touched the ball and he never once went down on first contact. he is a beast and only a true sophomore for all you that think nobody develops or cant make a play until they are a senior. I guess that only happens here cause I see freshman and sophs balling out every week in cfb. I mean come on folks these kids only get four years when are they gonna develop lol. Why can't we recruit a LB over 6 feet and 200 lbs? i see them all over college football and they seem to be just as fast as anyone we have.

We need some monsters on D. All our Dlineman are on the short and fat side. Look at Holmes and Forston, Porter they are all the same guy. Boise had some tall, rangy, athletic big azz DLineman. They weren't sloppy either, maybe weighed 270-290 but they have heart and ball out. Our guys are such soft azz punks compared to U teams of the past it makes me sick. I don't even get that pissed when we lose anymore because it's become so common i'm used to it now.

Anyways just wanted to bitch a little and see if anyone else has any thoughts. Have to go back to work take care.

Not sure, but the Herald had the UM Baseball "Weed" story AND the Nevins book story hours before the South Florida papers ran those stories. The Sarasota Herald is a Gator "Rag", so my guess is they love to post a negative story about UM as soon as they receive it from the AP!

If I have to read another comparison to Boise State's players, I'm going to scream. Look, that program is a big joke, it's actually an amusing joke, unlike Notre Dame which has become a big tired joke, or the chokies who are a big overblown joke, but still they're a joke. If you switched UM's and Boise's schedule this year we'd be talking trash about how unimpressive the 2001 team was by comparison at the end of the year once we curbed stomped the entire schedule of play into the dust.

If you want to whine about a non-BCS school who's athletes look like they could play anywhere, TCU and their top-tier weight training program are right there at #4 to point to. The Boise guys just go out and execute the scheme to precision, they aren't that impressive individually when you line them up and measure them. The Frogs on the other hand run a disciplined scheme but they have guys who were under the radar as recruits clean lifting three times their body weight to make up for any deficiencies in execution on the field to compensate for any shortfall. Of course, now we'll have the PED scandal break in Fort Worth now that I've specifically used them as an example how to develop the sleeper recruits to get the most out of them you can.

Just talk'd UM and the tweet issue on Gameday Live...
I love having TV in office...

Sarasota, that paper does gatorsux, grantd. I really didnt take it as super negative...it was an AP story...I just think its weird no one in SoFLa carried it.

From Rivals...

"North Carolina is being investigated by the NCAA for alleged improper contact with agents and academic fraud. The probe could be prompting several UNC targets to reconsider Chapel Hill as their future home. Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek QB Marquis Williams is a North ..."

Can he be a Miami target? I know Randy wants another good QB in this class...He wants competition...I think he visited a QB in Cali this week...

I think Georgia Southern just hired him

UMike

Correct me if I am wrong..but did Arkansas do anything to be #12 in the nation?

solarcane

Charleston Southern sorry

Concerning complaints about the D...

Yeah, they could've played better. The D isn't the reason we lost tho. The D played well enough to win the game. If the D plays to that level all season, our CANES will win a lot.

Its simple...fix the turnover problem, win a lot of games. Some of U all are making things too complicated and crying like little children.

pbcfrcane13

I mean really? UM is on that list. That guy or girl didnt even bother to look at the name is joke!!! UM lost to the number 2 team in the country with btw was favored over the canes by 10 or 9 depending on when you bet. Really who would have thought the canes would be 2-0 right now. The cane with 4 TO and over 100 yds in flags still had a chance but they are one of the most disappointing teams in the nation. What a joke of an article!!!!! I have come to the point where people just write things so people look and responde.

UMike

Dallas..Im with you..the D is the main reason we didnt loose by 20 more points (5 fg's instead of td's)..they need to make the tackle behind the line of scrimmage though and they will keep us in every game....BTW..I hated seeing Spence in the backfield to bring Pryor down only to watch him over run him..no breaking down and squareing up at all

umike
Sept 25 Alabama comes to Fayetteville, that should be the last of that talk.

UMike

lol solar..its amazing how certain teams catch a buzz and all of a sudden are a top 15 team..didnt do anything, but in the offseason there was a buzz..kinda like ole miss last year lol

Dude i am with you 100%. Some people on this blog are acting like its the end of the world. JH had a bad game. The type of pics he had were not like the pics he threw last year and thats encouraging.

As i have said before, 99% of us picked the Canes to loose at least 1 game. I would prefer them to loose to the #2 ranked team in the country rather than to an unranked, weaker opponent.

If they were going to loose one game, that game is the one you want them to loose. The ACC championship game is the goal and last time i checked, we are still on schedule.

Time to move on peoples.


Go Ganes!

Anyways just wanted to bitch a little and see if anyone else has any thoughts. Have to go back to work take care.

What differnce does Spence's size make? The dude can play. Rohan Marley, Zach Thomas.

I was wondering how long before the first strength and conditioning reference would come-up.

The d-line is solid.

I'm still a surprised so many are down already on the canes this year.

I do agree that freshman can and should play. RS said the best will play so what does that say about the freshmen.

darCANEgel

UMike, question: If your hitting the Razorbacks, what did WE do to be ranked 18 or whatever it was to start the season?

Lose to WI?
Fail at UNC?
Smoked @ VaTech?

Why 18 - or whjatever it is?
B/c of our players
our coaches
our schedule

In the end...

IT DOESNT MATTER, brutha!!
Enjoy the season and relax this weekend

This is to everyone, not just U...


Dont worry about AR, amigo...

I agree that we have to hold leaders accountable. However, after watching the Ohio State game on my DVR for the first time (I was at the game in Columbus so i didn't have the best angles on all of the plays), I have to admit that at least two of the four interceptions were not Jacory's fault. They hit the receiver in the hands and he didn't hang on to it. Not an excuse, but something to consider in your analysis of Jacory's "poor" performance.
