It Sucks To Suck

NativeCane

Third!
The Bulls sure are getting a lot of Traction on Hurricane azz lately!

Go Canes!!!

Herbieibis

It's better to get that azz beat early than later and so it goes for the anemic Canes bats. It's been way past time they did something with those bats and all those trumped up batting averages, most of the college teams have. Team batting averages in the mid 320's or 300 for that matter should be a thing of the past. We'll see who the true hitters are and it should make pitching a little easier, where you don't have to be so fine. You can now get away from some mistakes.
It's great DVD ran in the 4.2's but the mug is weak and defenitely is not a tackling machine. He probaby put on 15 lbs the whole time he was in school. So much for Shannon's off season workouts!

First football and now in baseball. Whats next - having your girlfriend leave you for a USF alumn?

Kudos to the USF fan for throwing up 1/2 half of the "U". Mucho class on her part.

Six

Let me copy/paste what I wrote on the last blog about the Canes baseball ...

******

When did Morris win those National Championships? There were 2 main cogs to that machine who have left, both were good recruiters .. one of them being phenomenal.

Another cog to the machine known as Miami Hurricane Baseball, resigned after a incident that the NCAA frowned upon and brought sanctions upon the baseball team

It was "regarding a sports club/conditioning program co-owned by baseball assistant coach. The investigation found that the sports club had allowed prospective student-athletes to use athletic department training facilities and participate in activities that demonstrated their athletic abilities. Both activities are in violation of NCAA rules"


When did those people leave, who took over for them and just how well have the Canes done since then

Here's a hint about one of them ...

"He had 19-straight recruiting classes ranked among Collegiate Baseball's Top 10 at Miami and LSU. He was the only recruiting coordinator in the nation who has signed the No. 1 rated class four times, and he has never had a class rated lower than ninth over the past 19 years. (BLANK) has also signed the second-rated class four times. Every class he signed at LSU ranked in the Top 6, including his 2004 class, which was considered the best in the country."


Here's a hint about the other one, who took over for the previous phenomenal one ...

"His 2001 class was rated among the top five nationally and his 2003 class was ranked among the top 15 nationally. UM's incoming class, which was targeted primarily by (BLANK), was ranked second by Collegiate Baseball and fifth by Baseball America prior to the 2007 season. 'The way to sustain this tradition is to keep bringing in the top-notch players annually.' That includes the 2005 ACC Player of the Year and ACC Pitcher of the Year, Ryan Braun (California) and Cesar Carrillo (Illinois). Braun and Carrillo were also Miami's two 1st Round draft picks in 2005. (BLANK) has also kept Florida's top talent home, including 2006 1st Round pick Chris Perez (Holmes Beach) and 2nd Round pick, Jon Jay (Miami). Although Miami has its share of home-grown talent, (BLANK) has found the very best the rest of the country has to offer. (BLANK)'s offensive teams have proved to be some of the best in the history of the Hurricane program. UM's offense has ranked among the top 10 in school histroy in seven of (BLANK)'s eight seasons as the club's hitting instructor. The 2005 team hit .321, the seventh-best team batting average in school history and the 2004 squad finished the season with a .330 batting average, which ranks fourth in school history. UM's .310 average in 2006 was only bested by five teams that were not under the guidance of (BLANK), dating back 62 years"


Here's a hint about the 3rd one ...

He was a reliever on the '85 National Championship team. He was one of the most respected and knowledgeable pitching coaches in the nation. He was instrumental in the development of Brian Walker (Mets), Tom Farmer (Tigers), Team USA pitcher Kiki Bengochea. Farmer was named to the All-Tournament Regional & College World Series team. Walker was drafted in the 4th Round. Danny Graves is a product of his. Jay Tessmer was a product of his. Robbie "Piranha" Morrison was a product of his - a 1st Team All-American and 2nd Rounder. Michael Neu was a product of his and made the College World Series All-Tourney Team. Luke DeBold was a product of his - he had a 67-7 strikeout to walk ratio in 2001. George Huguet was a product of his - he was a Frosh All-American. Both DeBold & Huguet were National College Baseball Writers Assoc. All-Americans. This guy was the pitching coach for the USA Senior National Team in 1993, who won a Silver Medal at the Intercontinental Cup and a Bronze at the World University Games


Guess who these 3 guys are - one of them followed the other as Recruiting Coordinator and both were hitting coaches. The 3rd was the pitching coach

I'll tell you who the hell they sure the f*ck aren't - JD Arteaga, Roger Tomas, Joe Mercadante

All these guys need to go. Immediately

I hope no one tries to stick up for these guys either

Something as simple as positioning the outfielders according to the batter - Mercadante screwed the pooch on that one today, and USF got a run out of it

Ask 86 exactly what happened, b/c it happened maybe 2 pitches after I pointed out why in the hell is the RF for the Canes playing so far off the right field line with a left handed batter for USF up - I mean there was a ton of real estate between the RF for the Canes and the foul line

Guess where the USF hitter placed it

Absolutely disgusting what happened today

This team can kiss their Regional streak goodbye b/c it ends this year

86, too bad you couldn't stay for the FSU/UiF game .. you would've seen 2 good teams play .. picking each other up .. hustling on/off the field .. having amazing infield/outfield warm-ups and drills

Then again, that's why they're ranked #1 and #7 respectively in the nation, while Miami is playing .500 ball, actually breathing a sigh of relief when they beat Appy F'ing State???? and losing to a USF team that lost a series to ELON COLLEGE before beating Miami today


******

Can anyone name those 3 guys who I talked about?

Ohio_Cane

Good article with interesting quote from Jacory. I think it was obvious, but to hear him say, just confirms it... “The past two years it was me being too comfortable”.

http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/caneswatch/2011/03/02/hurricanes-qb-jacory-harris-the-past-two-years-it-was-me-being-too-comfortable/

raizecane

Ohio - I said it before and I will say it again in my thinking regarding that article -

I don’t want anyone on this team who feels they can only play if they are being pushed. I want a guy who goes “balls to the wall” even if Pee Wee Herman himself was the back up.

Six

The new damn bats aren't to blame - that's like saying Duke is a tough place to play b/c the walk from the locker room to the field is a long distance

Coaches need to go. And no, it's not better to get your ass beat early rather than late - it's not good to get your ass beat AT ALL

Look at the out-of-conference schedule the Canes have and how they did ...... are you sh*ttin me?

Rutgers. Appy State. FAU. USF. Really?

Just wait until they get into ACC conference play. Ya, the Canes might pull out wins against the lesser teams like Maryland, Wake Forest, Duke, VTech ... but it'll be real fun to play Virginia, FSU, Clemson, NC State, GTech

I also don't want to hear this crap about how what really matters is how they play in conference, the out of conference games don't matter much. Well, I guess not, b/c the team is playing like open ass so they must have the same mind frame

It's going to be a lot of fun this upcoming weekend, going to UiF for a 3 game series? Eeessh

Youth isn't an excuse either. UiF is just as young as Miami. They both have the new bats. What's the difference?

Coaches. Players who emulate the way of their coaches.

Miami for the most part looked lazy as hell yesterday. In/out of the dugout. USF had everyone and their mom up on the top step of the dugout during the entire game, whether they were in the field or up to bat. Miami had maybe 5 guys, 6 guys at the most? People might laugh or scoff at that, but that's a telling sign of just how into the game a team is - and I don't think JD, Roger Tomas or Mercadante were all in the dugout giving coaching clinics to the players that entire time. Mercadante was up on the top step, wrongly positioning his outfielders. FSU and UiF looked like they wanted to jump over the dugout fence at each other - and they played like it as well

Fieger is still a complete mystery to me b/c that is the most un-athletic looking kid I've ever seen in a Canes uni .. from his throwing motion, to his running style, to the way he fields the ball - but he's hitting 3rd and leading the team at a .333 clip

Shane Rowland is showing a lot. He was 0-3 yesterday, but the kid showed discipline at the plate and worked the count

He worked the count to 2-2, hit an opposite field fly ball for an out. He worked the count 3-2, got a walk. He worked the count to 2-2, hit another opposite field fly ball for an out. You can see the discipline at the plate - then again, when you have a dad that won 2 rings at Miami as a player, he probably translated some of that to his son as well

The kid has a nice arm, he got the throw down to 2B at under 2 seconds

This team is in trouble. How Roadrunner DeVoss even gets anything to look at is beyond me, with the way Perez isn't doing jack at the plate. At least Fieger is getting some good pitches to look at b/c of Harold behind him.

Wasted effort by Ewing yesterday - 7 hits is still a little much to like, but the 5 Ks in the 6.1 innings was nice to see

CaneRock

Pardon this question, but are the new bats in College wood bats?

raizecane

CaneRock - I don't think so. They are still Aluminum but with a much smaller "sweet spot"

When I play softball, I used to play with a Miken II which was rated at about 105MPH. I weighed 175lbs and was knocking HR's that went about 375 feet. Afer a few players got killed, they banned the Miken II and dropped the rating to around 97 MPH. I am guessing they did it for baseball as well.

canesteeler

Like I said Morris is on the clock. Word is Morris had planned on retiring but his wealthy wife divorced him and he had to come back for financial reasons. I hope the Canes can turn it around before ACC baseball starts, but I don't think they have the horses. I expect UF to punk us this weekend!

The last half of this one was good (not saying the first part was bad, just hard to read such negative posts. I know its cathartic for us sometimes, Sebas?). Please give me something to build on baseball afficienados :)

What can we build on in basketball sebas? Is there a fire Haith website yet?

Ohio_Cane

A day in the life of Sean Spence - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T2AB2HypOc

Six

CaneRock - na, like raize said, the sweet spot is now about 3 inches .. as opposed to how it used to be, taking up basically the entire logo on the bat

Now, the sweet spot would be about from the end of the "T" to the beginning of the "X" .. as opposed to it being from the words "Louisville Slugger" to the "X"

http://www.bplowestprices.com/images/P/CB9X.jpg

raize - I was invited to play on a few teams for slo-pitch, "A" League and some "C" Leagues for work that were co-ed ... they didn't regulate the bats at all. In the "A" League, home runs were limited to 2 a game, then it would be an auto out if you hit over that. Peeps were coming up to the plate with Miken Ultras, Ultra IIs, MSF Freaks, Ultra Maxloads, Louisville Slugger FPC305 Catalysts, etc. and it was scary b/c the trampoline effect off of those bats is insane

Same would go for the "C" League co-eds .. same bats. When you see a girl on a team that weighs maybe 125 lbs. hit a ball to deep right, opposite field, about 270 feet - you know something is rotten in Denmark

I quit playing a couple years ago simply b/c the guys would take it wayyy too seriously and I don't want to play in a co-ed league with a bunch of guys that go up to bat with an illegal stick in their hand and try to light up a girl in the field

Da U N Houston

Great video Ohio_Cane

raizecane

Six - I was talking to a guy threw my PS3 that said there is a bat out there made by Worth that is unreal. He said he already has close to 60 dingers. I personally would never be a pitcher on a softball team.

I had a friend of mine almost lose an ear (temps were in the 30's that night) when he took a line drive. Had he been hit in the temple....LIGHTS OUT. I know in the leagues I play in, if you get caught with an illegal or shaved bat, you are banned for the whole season.

I played up until last year because there was too much drama on the team. However, one of the attorneys that works in my building is in a 50+ league and they have multiple championships as a traveling team. I have 3 1/2 more years before I can join, lol.

Six

raizecane - haha, those leagues with older guys, man they know how to hit. When I say older guys, I'm talking leagues with 60+ year olds .. there's a league over in Clearwater, I think you have to be 70 years old minimum

They place the ball where they want, they don't go up there trying to swing for the fence

Ya, I wouldn't ever want to play pitcher or 3rd in those leagues

The guys that played in the middle infield in the "A" League, they'd play a few feet onto the grass beyond the infield and just rely on their arms b/c the ball would get there in a split second anyway

I just can't play in those leagues anymore - like you said, drama out the ass. Guys taking it wayyyy too seriously, thinking they're auditioning for some minor league baseball try out or something

It's good though that they enforce the illegal bats in your leagues, b/c people can get seriously hurt .. it's scary

Sebastian

DZ8,
I believe it was you who asked me about scouts in the last blog. If not ill check back to see who it was. Here goes the short(I hope)answer.

I have an illness that was caused by concussions.Some coaches(HS and smaller colleges)have gone around and spoken and behalf of this growing problem. Now its not just me,its others with the coaches as well

So I have gotten to know some of these guys pretty well and of course some of the people they know as well

As Six could probably tell you as well, theres scouts all over the place for both the college level and pro level in this area and whenever they are around I always ask them questions about `Canes players and what they think about them. Whenever im in other areas I do the same thing

I dont ever drop names of those guys because ive never asked them if its ok to do so. So if I seem very vague about statements im sorry about that but its something I feel very strongly about

canesteeler

Sebas, feel better and keep sharing the info bro!

In the same article about Jacory is this piece.........
….Maybe Randy Shannon wasn’t recruiting the choir boys we were led to believe. According to a six-month investigation by Sports Illustrated and CBS News regarding the criminal backgrounds of players who comprised the roster of SI’s 2010 pre-season Top 25, the Hurricanes have eight players with police records. Pittsburgh led with 22 players owning police records followed by Iowa/Arkansas 18; Boise State/Penn State 16; Virginia Tech 13; Oklahoma/ Wisconsin/Florida State 9; Miami 8; Florida/Ohio State/Oregon/USC 7; Alabama/Cincinnati/North Carolina /Utah 5; Georgia Tech/Nebraska/Oregon State;. LSU/ Texas 2; Stanford 1; TCU 0.

I wonder how accurate this is. FSU 9 Miami 8 OSU/FLA 7 seems out of wack to me.

Sebastian

DZ8,
I also wanted to add to that, that I also take part in group that goes around and holds discussions about the effects of concussions

I dont go to everyone of them but I do try to attend as many of them as I can

Sebastian

As for the basketball team

The article about the lack of a true PG about sums up this season

You really have to question why, when you know the team lacks a PG, you would run half court sets that call for a strong PG to run them

He has a real talent in Bishop Daniels coming in but the way he runs his system BDs talents will not be used to match his skill set here

NativeCane

Ohio, At least we got this going for us. ha

DrewZ2

Six...thanks for your explaination on the last blog...I don't follow the canes baseball as closely as football (basically i just get the alerts on final scores for baseball) and I do remember we got rid of a pitching coach a year or 2 ago but your explaination told alot

Thanks

DrewZ2

canesallaccess released a new video .... "a day in the life of sean spence" or something like that

Sebastian

A team batting avg. of .241 will have opposing pitchers fighting to get to the mound to face the `Canes

Just to toss some #s behind what Six saying how pathetic Perez is at batting 2nd...when slotted in the 2 spot he is hitting .160 with 11Ks, also lets not forget to add that he leads the `Canes with 3 errors

Now on to the bright side

BRad has really had 2 great outings this year and showed good stuff on the mound

Overall the pitching hasnt been all that bad

Its just bad defense has let them down behind them

Numbers can be made to say whatever the author wants. If a kid has an arrest record what did he do? Did he get caught pissing outside, did he steal a candy bar? Young kids will do dumb things. Serious assualts are a different issue. The 8 kids the Canes admitted did not commit or get arrested for any additional crimes while with the team!

CGNC

Me likey the Canes All Access videos

DZ8

They must've been using records from before they were Canes (juvenile records sealed?). No way the media in Miami doesn't pounce on any slight, perceived, infraction a Canes player does.


Sebastian57, It was me. Thank you for the answer but you can stretch it out if you like, I like details. Don't want or need to know the names of the scouts (agree with your philosophy), just curious how you get the goods. :)

CanesFanStuckInCali

I don't think the SI article is accurate, but even if it were accurate, who cares?!?!?!

What matters is what happened AFTER they arrived on campus, and on that list, the Canes under Randy Shannon were squeaky clean, and FSU and UF were among the worst in the nation.

What a dumb article! And they didn't even provide any context regarding how serious the arrests were. For all we know these arrests could've been for curfew violations or some other non-serious crime.

GO CANES!!!

Spring Practice Stock Characters: Meet the Dueling Quarterbacks
By Matt Hinton

• MIAMI: Jacory Harris vs. Stephen Morris.

Relevant Dynamic: The Veteran vs. The Clean Slate.

Harris, enters his senior season as a symbol of inconsistency and mediocrity after two full seasons as an entrenched starter, also under a new offensive coordinator who insists the job is anyone's to win. That's a hard fall for Harris, who opened his junior season as a rising star on a rising team. Instead, the Hurricanes were blown out of there biggest games against Ohio State and Florida State, Harris was knocked out of the lineup for almost a month in a sobering loss at Virginia, attendance dwindled, the turnover margin soared and coach Randy Shannon was fired immediately following a season-ending flop with Harris back in the saddle against South Florida. In his last start, Harris looked like he'd rather be anywhere but the Sun Bowl, where he served up three interceptions in 13 snaps in an embarrassing rout at the hands of Notre Dame, pushing his career total to a staggering 39 picks in three years.

Stephen Morris wasn't appreciably better in relief, putting up nine INTs himself in five-and-a-half games, but he was a) A true freshman who fully expected to redshirt until Harris' injury, and b) The closest the 'Canes had to a spark as the season unraveled, leading an impressive win over Georgia Tech and a late comeback to beat Maryland in his first two starts.

Advantage: Morris. Most importantly, Morris offers a clear demarcation between the Shannon era and the new rebuilding campaign under coach Al Golden. Faced with two interception-prone QBs learning a new system, there's no reason not to hand the reins to the long-term solution unless Harris clearly outplays him.

Herbieibis

The arrest records were probably from before they enrolled in school. I see where the Gators were behind us with 7. They turned to criminals when Urbane got a hold of them. What have they had like 30 arrest, under his watchful (HA) eye?

Six,

You're way to emotional about the baby canes and the way their playing now.
I coach the sport and it's a game of streaks, hills & valleys. I don't care if you play the sisters of the poor, there's a good chance they'll win one game. This is truly a sport, where any team has a legitament chance to win. This is not going to be one of the U's better teams. How do we beat the flipping Flo. Marlins and lose to App. ST? This team will probably be like this most of the year. If they can take 2 out of 3 each series I'll be satisfied. It ain't always going to be this way, Dog! And it ain't how you start but how you finish. They could lose 22 regular season games sweep the ACC tourney and win the ship. That's the ultimate goal. We're just going to have to ride this rollercoaster, until they figure it out!

Herbieibis

Also, the kid playing way off the line in right field, was probably positioned there because they were pitching the lefthanded hitter away. Oops, he probably threw it in and the kid rips it down the line. Where's Turtle when you need him?

North Carolina obtains search warrant for records of agent Gary Wichard


Erick Smith, USA TODAY


A search warrant for the financial records of Gary Wichard has been issued as part of a state of North Carolina investigation into whether the NFL agent broke any state laws.


Former North Carolina assistant coach John Blake had ties to agent Gary Wichard.CAPTIONBy APNorth Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall's office launched the probe after the NCAA began looking into possible agent-related benefits in the University of North Carolina's football program.

Wichard was interviewed by North Carolina investigators last fall. He has admitted financial ties to former Tar Heels assistant coach John Blake, who resigned in September.

The warrant was issued to Bank of America for certain financial documents connected to Wichard and his California-based firm, Pro Tect Management LLC, since January 2009.

Marshall spokesman George Jeter said Wednesday that the search warrant was "definitely a step forward in the investigation."

The NFL Players Association suspended Wichard in December for nine months for his role in the North Carolina probe that resulted in several players being suspended, including season-long bans for Greg Little and Marvin Austin.

Investigators say that Pro Tect paid $1,000 to reimburse a high school assistant coach, who had paid for Austin's flights to and from California in March 2009, according to a probable cause affidavit filed with the search warrant.

In addition, Pro Tect paid $915.40 to a travel agency to cover changes to Austin's flight itinerary, according to the affidavit.

Last home game tonight for Pops

I hope the `Canes can send him out of the BUC tonight as a winner vs the Terps

Hes been thru alot as a `Cane

Tipoff at 7pm on ESPNU

A win ties the `Canes for 8th in the ACC while a loss would drop them to 10th

DZ8

Let him know he's got a big fan who wants him to rep the 8 solar!

Sebastian

A sloppy start by both teams but the `Canes have been the 1st team to straighten things out and take a 20-12 lead with over 10 minutes to go in the 1st half

Big Reg owns the boards right now

Sebastian

Rion Brown really has a chance to be a very good player here

Hes able to do alot of things on the court and has good size

He just needs a little more freedom to do some things out there

30-20 6 1/2 to go

Sebastian

At the end of the 1st half the `Canes lead the Terps 40-27. A pretty decent half after a bit of a slow start for the `Canes

Scott 7 points 3 assists
RigReg 5 points 10 rebounds hes just owning the paint right now
Rion 10 points 1 assist

me.yahoo.com/a/P3Vl_Nlzj_UsYaWxEX5ko.MlFNzv99vNYOmB

I had a chance to see the boys for 6 innings yesterday. Their pitcher did a nice job of throwing to contact and keeping the ball down. I only recall 1 strikeout, and they hit the ball solidly, but couldn't find the gaps. The DP's hurt too.

This team's kinda hard to figure. The pitching #'s are very good. ERA at 3, opponent's BA .202, SO/BB ratio of 72/25 and only allowed 6 steals. That's strong for college ball regardless of the competition. But they're not getting the key out in the key situations. 10 E's are not helping, but I still like this team defensively.

On the flip side, the O is definitely struggling, but we know that Martinez, Melendres and Broad can hit much better so hopefully they'll get hot. Miami's had 27 more baserunners than the opposition, but like the pitchers, not making the key play. They sure look like they miss Palaez-their leading returning hitter, and a reliable hitter in the clutch.

All 4 losses were only by a total of 8 runs, so an out here and a hit there could have won 2 or 3 games. I'd like to see more stealing, but at least they've been successful so far-safe 12 in 14 attempts. UF's only had 2 attempts against them so far this year, so maybe Miami's speed will be a tough adjustment.

I'm not suggesting the team has looked good so far, but I do think its too early to panic. Six makes some good points about the lack of savvy on the part of the coaches after Morris. But a good performance in G'ville could launch a nice run, 'cause the schedule is manageable all the way up to the trip to UNC in late April. Of course, a sweep to the bad could put the streak in jeopardy.

Think Jim Morris and Company are a little too "comfortable" at Miami, too. It's time for them to go. If we're going to be stuck with the awful Frank Haith for God knows how long, we should put Morris and his assistats on the street!

Meph...let me tell u what I saw about the UM baseball team that disturbed me.

NO HUSTLE, NO ENERGY, NO DESIRE, NO LEADERSHIP

I would have sworn Randy Shannon was coaching them. And you would have thought that with Morris not with the team due to his surgery that Arteaga MIGHT have tried to show he was auditioning for the head job one day and try to make a statement and they would "win one for the coach" (Morris) who was ill and couldn't make the trip.

U know how some teams hustle into and out of the dugout and run onto and off of the field after each inning to the point where it looks a little silly even?

NOT this team. They walk/jog and take a few minutes extra. It appears that a lazy, careless attitude has infested the team. Nobody seemed upset when they lost to USF.

That is what concerns me most. I had planned to go to Gainesville this Sunday but am having second thoughts about it to be honest.

Should I drive 6 hours R/T to sit through 2.5 hours of that type of performance?

Drew72 - no problem man

I'm a baseball freak, love it. If I had to rank my favorite sports, it would go as follows ...

2) MLB baseball
3) NFL
4) College basketball
5) NHL

The 3 guys that I was talking about that the Canes are desperately missing ...

Turtle Thomas. Gino DiMare. Lazer Collazo.

Want to know just how good these guys are? I tried to shorten their mini-bios of what they accomplished at Miami

Turtle is a phenomenal recruiter & hitting coach. Gino is a great at recruiting as well & hitting coach. Lazer is a bad mofo when it comes to pitching coach

Some guy named Jim Palmer hired Lazer to coach him privately when he tried to make a comeback in 1991

Remember when Louisville beat Miami in the Regionals in Missouri, in 2007? Lazer was the pitching coach there .. that team advanced to Omaha

Losing those 3 guys hurt immensely

Six remember when we did the 50 Fab Floridians?
We put Darrell Gwynn top fuel driver in because of his accomplishments for The Miami Project and his Spinal injury foundation as well as his racing record.

At a Barrett Jackson Car Auction he auctioned off one of his top fuel race cars for charity, to raise money for spinal injury awareness and dollars for juvenile spinal injury victims.

Check this out

A guy bid 200,000 dollars for the race car, received it, immediately donated it back to Gwynn who auctioned it back off five minutes later for 110,000 more dollars. The second winner immediately donated the car back to Darrell who then auctioned it off for 100,000 more dollars.

Herbie - baby Canes? They're no younger than UiF, and look at where either program is headed and who has knocked the other out/won the series during the year/overall record since O'Sullivan and his staff got there

Youth isn't an excuse. The bats aren't an excuse

One win against the Marlins in an exhibition game they don't even care about in the slightest, except to run their minor league guys out there to get some work in - doesn't show anything. The Marlins ran 22 guys up to the plate to get some swings in

I know baseball. I never coached it, but I was an informal instructor for some youth baseball camps - using slip n slides with a bunch of Palmolive to make it fun to teach kids how to slide .. using ping pong paddles with little handles for your fingers in the back of them to teach kids how to have soft hands in fielding .. having the kids look down and close their eyes while I'd smash tennis balls way up into the air and then telling the kid to open his eyes when the ball reached it's peak and for them to track the ball/then catch it .. standing behind them and soft tossing a ball with a little height over their front shoulder while they're in their batting stance and having them try and hit it .. etc.

This roller coaster has made me nauseous the past few years. The best thing about the new bats - it shows the differential in the teams that are more fundamentally sound at the plate as opposed to those who would just pray for the long ball to happen

USF was crowding the plate all night, I pointed this out to 86 while we sat there and watched. Why was Rowland setting up somewhat outside when the RF was miles from the foul line for that lefty hitter for USF, only for him to stroke it down the line?

Since you're a coach, how would you like seeing your guys meandering on and off the field, not getting up and hanging over the top rail to at least act like they were into the game when they were either in the field or up to bat - while USF had everybody up the entire time, FSU had everyone up the entire time, UiF had everyone up the entire time ... in between innings of the FSU/UiF game, both teams would take turns running out down either the RF or LF line in foul territory, stretching, taking ghost batting swings, then run back .. and I'm not talking a couple of guys, I'm talking the rest of the team that wasn't either getting ready to bat or wasn't out in the field

There's a lot of problems with the team

Golden has it correct with the football team in the type of attitude he's trying to bring ... Morris needs to do the same

Miami Hurricanes’ Tommy Streeter is ready for a new route

.UM wide receiver Tommy Streeter is wearing a new jersey number and has a new attitude with it.

By Susan Miller Degnan
sdegnan@MiamiHerald.com


Tommy Streeter walked into the football locker room recently and saw his new jersey number – 8 – beside his name.

“I was all smiles,’’ said Streeter, a Miami Hurricanes junior who requested the change from No. 86 to start anew, just like his coaching staff, and was randomly assigned the new number. “I took a picture of it and sent it to my dad. My mom is a pastor, and I told her about it. She said No. 8 represents a new beginning. It made me feel at peace.’’

And not just because the player it previously belonged to, cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke, this week ran one of the fastest 40-yard times recorded by the NFL Scouting Combine: 4.28 seconds.

Streeter, it turns out, is pretty speedy himself.

The player they call “Street” was clocked at 4.3 in the 40 last spring, not too shabby for a kid who is 6-5 and has packed another 10 pounds on his now 215-pound frame.

“He’s big, he’s fast, he’s tall – he’s got everything you want in terms of how he looks and runs,’’ UM offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said. “Now we have to get the ball in his hands and let him go.’’

This is a player who came into UM in 2008 as one of seven from Northwestern High ready to tear it up on the field. More subdued than some of his other Bulls teammates, he nonetheless caught three touchdowns in the Bulls’ biggest game of his senior season, a nationally televised showdown against Southlake Carroll in Texas. He finished his senior year with 36 catches for 676 yards and 11 touchdowns.

But torn ligaments in Streeter’s right wrist, coupled with “a bone out of place,’’ required surgery a week before his freshman season, and he redshirted. The past two seasons have fallen far short of expectations, though Streeter finally nabbed his only catch of 2010 and first career touchdown in the Sun Bowl — a 42-yarder from Stephen Morris — on New Year’s Eve.

“It was a sensational feeling,’’ Streeter said. “The thing is, I’ve always been known as a guy who stretched the field and has great speed. The fact that I incorporated that into the game is the reason I felt so happy. I was able to deliver the product fans had expected.’’

Streeter’s combined numbers in ’09 and ’10: five receptions for 109 yards and the touchdown.

“I’m excited about Tommy Streeter’s development,’’ said coach Al Golden, whose Canes begin spring practice at 9 a.m. Saturday. “He has all the measurables — Aldarius Johnson, too. I want to get those guys on the field and say, ‘OK, let’s really narrow it down. What’s holding you back? What’s preventing you from going to the next level?’’

Streeter’s answer: himself.

“I blame myself for not playing more,’’ he said. “Nobody else. There were many days I didn’t go out with the mind-set to maximize the day. A lot of times I’d get down on myself and think, ‘Things aren’t going to change.’ ’’

What could he have done better? “Not have uncertainty, know within myself that I can do this. The crazy thing is I talked to Alonzo Highsmith [Sr.] the day of the bowl game, and he told me everybody says I have so much talent. He tapped my head and poked me in the chest and said, ‘You’ve got to know it here and believe it there.’ He said I have to know that no one can stop me but myself.

“After I scored that day I tapped my chest and my head and said, ‘Thank you, Jesus.’ That stuck with me. Expectations aren’t going to change. You’ve got to be the one to change.’’

No one bypasses breakfast anymore.

Some Miami Hurricanes football players used to skip the most important meal of the day and wait until lunch to eat.

Now, one of the Al Golden rules is that every player must consume 1200 to 1500 calories every morning. And if they don't?

Not possible, center Tyler Horn said.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"The coaches are there every morning in the dining hall," Horn said. "There's a guy with a sign-in sheet and he says, 'Oh, Tyler Horn walked in, mark him off. Brandon Linder and Shane McDermott just walked in, mark them off.' There's no way you can skedaddle your way out of there. You've just got to go."

Not that it's a bad thing, Horn said, noting you can have French toast, pancakes, waffles and omelettes, and it's all pretty good.

Under Golden's watch, everything has been closely monitored and charted and studied since the offseason conditioning program started on Jan. 19.

After he took over on Jan. 1, Golden stressed the offseason program wouldn't be like "badminton," that it'd be demanding like the days when Butch Davis and Jimmy Johnson were coach.

Strength and conditioning coach Andreu Swasey, who has been at Miami since 2000, said Golden has succeeded at that.

"He has a well-organized plan," Swasey said. "He's done an unbelievable job of that with structure and accountability -- challenging guys from day to day with rankings and competition. You've got to be on your game day every day, which is good because everything is charted in a chart and watched."

Golden said he structured the offseason program to increase "mental and competitive toughness," as well as team discipline and unity. Physically, he prioritized strength, power and stamina.

"The hardest thing when you want to change something, most particularly something that requires labor, is to make sure the players understand the things we're doing are not punitive," Golden said.

At times, it has felt that way for players. The start of spring practice Saturday at 9 a.m. will be somewhat of a reprieve from the 6 a.m. workouts.

After weight lifting and running, there has been an extra grueling session known as "The Fifth Quarter," which Golden instituted to make players tougher mentally.

During that time, Swasey said, players continuously hustle from station to station, doing drills such as flipping tires, pushing sleds and carrying 80-pound weights 20 yards.

"This has been the most challenging workout for me ever since I've been here," said Horn, a rising senior. "We've focused a lot more on becoming more mentally tough. …Guys' attitudes have changed. They've embraced the difficulty of it. That's when you truly can be successful."

Added Swasey: "The good thing about it is it's a mental challenge, but it's also dealing with team continuity."

The result of every drill has been recorded, and rankings have been posted in the locker-room for all to see. Players have also been given different color jerseys reflective of their performance. Black is the best and it descends from there to green, to orange and then to the dreaded white. Defensive tackle Marcus Forston, defensive end Vernon Olivier and offensive tackle Jermaine Johnson are three players whose performance Swasey said he has been impressed with.

When practice starts Saturday, the depth chart will be based on off-season conditioning.

"The guys have responded well to everything," Swasey said.

Mandatory breakfasts have been the easiest to stomach.

Thomas final home game

There were two things on the minds of the Miami Hurricanes when they took the court Wednesday night, coach Frank Haith said: winning and Adrian Thomas.

With 32 seconds left in the game and the first one in hand, Haith called timeout to honor Thomas.

The sixth-year senior, also UM's only senior, will remember his final home game at the BankUnited Center as an 80-66 triumph against Maryland.

"I'm maxed out — there's no more money on that card," Thomas joked when teased if this was really it for him. "It just felt great to have a standing ovation [leaving the court] and we won. All of my teammates were cheering me on. It felt real good."


Thomas scored 12 points and his teammates collectively chimed in to make his night special.

Freshman guard Rion Brown scored a career-high 19 points as he made six of seven 3-pointers and a free throw after one of them. Reggie Johnson also scored 12 and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds battling inside against arguably the ACC's best big man — Jordan Williams.

Malcolm Grant scored 16. Durant Scott poured in 15.

The Hurricanes (18-12, 6-9 in the ACC) shot a season-best 54.9 percent.

They allowed the Terrapins (18-12, 7-8) to cut a 17-point second-half deficit to five, but didn't wilt.

Hurricanes cheerleaders were there with pom-poms to see them off.

So was Sebastian the Ibis.

Miami’s women’s basketball players grinned gratefully as they walked toward the bus outside BankUnited Center waiting to take them to the airport at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

“We have the ACC tourney every year,” guard Shenise Johnson said. “We never had cheerleaders out here previously.”

“It’s a great feeling,” backcourt mate Riquna Williams added.

These are the perks of going from worst to first in the ACC – 4-10 to 12-2 — in a matter of one season.

“Our team has kind of caught fire a little bit in the community and people have gotten to know our players and understand how special we are,” Coach Katie Meier said of the sendoff. “So that’s fun.”

No. 10 Miami, which shared the regular-season conference title with No. 8 Duke, will be the No. 2 seed in the ACC tournament and play the winner of North Carolina State and Boston College at 6 p.m. Friday in Greensboro, N.C.

Jacory

As University of Miami quarterback Jacory Harris completed an interview on campus last week and was leaving a room, he accidentally banged his head into a door left ajar.

"That's going to leave a mark," Harris said with a mix of humor and hurt.

Harris has learned to keep smiling in the face of adversity. He got plenty of practice during a physically and emotionally-wrenching 2010 season that included a serious concussion, more interceptions than touchdown passes and a Sun Bowl meltdown that has him fighting to keep his starting job.

That battle for the starting spot - with sophomore Stephen Morris - begins Saturday when UM's spring practice begins under first-year UM coach Al Golden.

It's the first time Harris has faced a serious contender for playing time since he shared snaps with Robert Marve as a freshman in 2008. But Marve transferred to Purdue the following year which, combined with a lack of depth, cleared the way for Harris to be the starter each of the past two seasons.

Some critics argue - and Harris agrees - that a lack of competition hurt Harris' progress. No matter how poorly Harris played at times, there was little chance of losing the No. 1 job to the likes of A.J. Highsmith, Spencer Whipple or Cannon Smith.

That all changed with the emergence of Morris, who played impressively while starting four games late in the season after Harris was sidelined by a concussion on Oct. 30.

Hurtt

Last week, Clint Hurtt was the presumptive leader to take over for Tracy Rocker as Auburn’s defensive line coach. Shortly after interviewing for the vacancy, however, Hurtt opted to remain at Louisville.

Based on one report, however, a new leader has emerged.

The Birmingham News reported this afternoon that Mike Pelton has emerged as the leading candidate to take over for Rocker. So much so, in fact, his hiring could be announced by the Tigers as early as today.

Pelton, who was hired by Louisiana-Lafayette following the 2010 season, was an All-SEC defensive lineman at Auburn in the nineties and spent the last two seasons at Vanderbilt. Prior to this, he coached at Troy for six seasons.

Radio host claims Auburn, Vols offered $’s to Cecil Newton

Posted by John Taylor on March 1, 2011, 4:54 PM EST

Over the past week or so, an Alabama radio host named Scott Moore has been making the radio rounds claiming he’s heard audio tapes of Cecil Newton discussing financial offers he’d received from schools for Cam Newton‘s signature on a Letter of Intent. Most damning — and potentially damaging to Cam’s now-former school — is Moore’s claim that the former Auburn quarterback was present for one of these purported conversations, which of course would severely undercut his claim that he had no idea what his father was doing behind the scenes during his recruitment while also calling into question the NCAA’s ruling that allowed him to regain his eligibility.

We’ve been very leery of Moore’s claims, mainly due to his lean toward a certain school in Tuscaloosa, and have thus shied away from going into any great detail in this space regarding his accusations. However, the sounds of those accusations have grown too loud, too thunderous and, most of all, too damning to continue to completely ignore.

Appearing on 104.5 the Zone in Nashville, Tenn., Tuesday afternoon, Moore reiterated his claims that both Tennessee and, yes, Auburn offered a significant amount of money to Cecil Newton in an attempt to lure Cam Newton to their respective schools. Specifically, Moore claims that the audio tapes he heard has Cecil Newton revealing that the Volunteers offered him $150,000 and the Tigers $180,000.

“I did say the offer was $150(K) and that is from Cecil Newton,” Moore explained during the 15-minute interview, which can be heard in its entirety by clicking HERE. ”Cecil Newton said that on the tape. ’$150,000 offer from Tennessee’, then he went up a week later to $200,000… and this is coming from Cecil Newton guys. This didn’t come from Tennessee, it didn’t come from Auburn.

“This is [Cecil Newton] saying to Mississippi State, ‘Hey, I have an offer from Tennessee for $150(K)’ one week, coming back the next week and saying ‘I have an offer for $200,000. I also have an offer for $180(K) from Auburn. So hey guys, we’ll come to Mississippi State for $180,000. So that is proved and that was said.”

Moore also repeated his claims that Cam Newton was around during at least one of his father’s discussions on schools bidding on his talents.

“I do believe that Cam Newton knew. I do believe that on these tapes when we play them that you’ll be able to tell Cam Newton knew what was going on. That’s all I’ll say about that at this time,” Moore said during the interview. “That’s been Auburn’s stance all along is that… and the SEC’s really and the NCAA’s… ‘Cam didn’t know what his dad was doing’. Well, so what? His dad was shopping him around. He should’ve been ineligible. That’s the whole thing here. And that’s all we’re trying to do, we’re trying to get this out and get the story answered. Let the NCAA answer this thing, let the SEC answer this thing. I wanna know why he was ruled ineligible for a couple of hours prior to the SEC championship game and I wanna know what the NCAA heard and I wanna know why they made their ruling.”

I did not RECOGNIZE that team last night. Solid rebounding, decent ballhandling, clean rather than forced threes, and Rion Brown? LOL! Way to hold off our secret weapon like that.

When Maryland came back to within 5, I was saying "Here we go again.", but somehow, these guys actually drove inside, got foul calls (an opposing player fouled out? wow.), and increased their lead so that the ending was not a nail-biter.

Admit it, Sebastian, you finally got the professor to swap your mind with Haith last night!

So, if we beat GT, and Maryland beats Virginia, we are in the ACC Tourney?

Wow, never would have thought that possible.

It was a very well played game last night

Rion Brown needed to be seeing alot more playing time this season. The kid has the size to do many things out on the court, along with playing very solid in your face defense

It would take a miracle for this team to make it to the NCAA tournament. I really dont care much for the NIT but its 50/50 on that right now

As much as I love what MG3 brings to this team I much prefer seeing Pops and Rion on the wings when Scott drives the ball to the hoop because they dont panic and move to the hole with him

I guess the bitterness of a failed season and the fact that he let Tim Hardaway Jr. slip right away from the `Canes is something I will never recover with from Coach Haith

41NBC News- OFF TOPIC

Most NASCAR drivers don't come to mind when you think of Las Vegas crimefighters, but then again, most NASCAR drivers aren't 69-year-old Morgan Shepherd.

The veteran of 44 NASCAR seasons was getting out of his rental car in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store Monday evening just minutes away from Las Vegas Motor Speedway just as three men ran from the store's entrance with security forces trailing behind.

That's when Shepherd, a daily jogger and fitness perfectionist, sprang into action.

"I just got out and took off after them," Shepherd said. "I caught one of them just as they were getting ready to hop a little wall at the end of the parking lot. I yanked him down and got on top of him."

Shepherd said in a matter of seconds a Las Vegas police officer threw the ageless NASCAR driver a pair of handcuffs and continued to chase the other two suspects, along with the store's security force.

"I cuffed him and sat on top of him," Shepherd said. "The police department officers showed up and asked if I could hold him a while longer while they ran down the others. I told them he wasn't going anywhere."

Shepherd said while the young shoplifter begged him to let him go and about the possibility of going to jail, Shepherd used the time to tell the youth about his poor choices.

"I didn't tell him a 69-year-old man chased him down," Shepherd joked. "He was probably 18 or 19. I told him he shouldn't be stealing stuff. There is just too much of this stuff going on."

"So many people these days would just sit and watch those guys run away," Shepherd said. "People need to get up and help stop this type of stuff."

The three suspects were taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. It wasn't known Tuesday what charges were pending against them.

Shepherd said after brushing himself off, he and wife Cindy continued their shopping visit to Wal-Mart.

Bosher Projected as a 7th Round PIck


Jupiter's Matt Bosher, now a University of Miami graduate kicker and punter, was invited to the NFL combine in Indianapolis' Lucas Oil stadium and got to kick and punt for pro scouts. He'll get another chance to do it again when Miami holds its own at Pro Day on March 10.

Bosher is projected as a seventh-round draft pick — if there is one — by CBS.sports.com or the 274th overall pick.

CBS sports lists him as the fourth overall punter although he also kicked at the combine.

Bosher was one of nine 'Canes invited to last weekend's combine. The college players participated in skills contests which included: 40, 20 and 10 yard runs; 225-pound bench press (how many times), vertical and broad jumps, 20-yard shuttle run and three coach drills.

Bosher's 40-yard time is officially 4.78.
