The SOUP'ster with possibly the only earth bound entity with a larger and orange-r cranium than himself side by side? How did the orange chip in the camera not wear itself out when the shutter snapped?

New building looks great, they've done some good work starting back in '02 with the new film school building my senior year.

GREAT news!

Sebastian

That sure is great news for both Miami basketball and Big Reg

The shape Coach L will have him in for this upcoming season will really show what Big Reg is made of

The better shape hes in the easier it will be to stay away from those silly fouls

To avoid silly fouls late in games you have to use your head move your feet and not use your heart and your hands.

Sebastian

Soup,
Youre so right about that

Im ready to see what this basketball has in store for next season

There is no doubt the `Canes have some serious jaw droppers on this team

I dont know if it will add up to more butts in the seats but it will have people jumping up and saying, oh my lawd did you that guy just dunk on that dude

Heres the transfer Trey Mckinney-Jones and just a taste of his crazy vert

He will be playing this upcoming season and its tough to figure out between him, Bishop and `Quan which one gets up the highest

2nd no hitter of the season goes to Justin Verlander

A 5 run 1st for the `Canes

Posted by: Sebastian

So Sebastian, what's the deal with D.Jones, why couldn't this kid get off the pine?

Sebastian

Coach Haith!!!!

Since he had no real offense or defense sets to run he really had no clue how to use a player with the athletic ability of `Quan

`Quan sure the heck isnt going to light it up from the 3 but that kat can slash to the hoop and can defend a few positions

The couple games I did attend that was one of the things you could hear everyone complaining about

Sebastian

Hofstra climbs their way back into the game

5-3 end of 3

THANK YOU! I was going to type that same observation in my last post. But yeah, like you, I'm looking forward to see what Coach L can do with this team...

Sebastian

1st career HR for Carey a 2 run HR puts the `Canes up 7-3 after 5 innings. 3 RBIs on the night for Carey so far

The `Cane den has a few TVs going so this is just an observation here but it sure seems that D Wade falls down on just about every offensive play

Im not a fan of any certain team but c`mon D Wade dont keep doing the Euro flop its getting old

Al Golden blameless in Miami Hurricanes players’ woes

By Barry Jackson

bjackson@MiamiHerald.com


• After watching coach Al Golden during a recent visit to campus, Jimmy Johnson told UM president Donna Shalala “she did good” by hiring him. “Really impressed with his attention to detail,” J.J. said, expressing a widely-held view.

But Golden’s first few months also have included dealing with several off-field issues: Jeffrey Brown’s arrest last week on a sexual battery charge; Ramon Buchanan’s March 18 arrest for resisting arrest and allegedly spitting on and trying to head-butt a police officer; and media reports that eight players will be suspended for a game or more because of three separate incidents, one involving UM police and at least one alleging marijuana use by multiple players.

After Brown’s arrest Wednesday, a local radio host noted that in two months, twice as many players have been arrested under Golden as were arrested in four years under Randy Shannon. Robert Marve broke a car window in the only known arrest under Shannon.

Blaming Golden for any of this, so early in his tenure, would be illogical, and Paul DiMare – the athletic advisory board chairman of UM’s Board of Trustees – said he doesn’t believe players were more afraid of Shannon than Golden.

“As a player, I would be scared of Al Golden more than Randy, just watching his practices,” said DiMare, who wields considerable influence and was involved in the football and basketball coaching searches. “Al is a strict and tough disciplinarian. He is not going to put up with this. I can’t blame him for any of this. I wouldn’t blame him unless he brought hoodlums into the program, and we try to bring in high character kids.

“If Randy was in this seat instead of Al, this still would have happened. Because Randy is not there, do kids think they can start committing crimes? I don’t think so. A guy doesn’t allegedly rape just because Randy is gone. As a trustee, I’m concerned about our reputation. We have a record of not having problems. Just because we’ve had two arrests in a short period doesn’t mean the program is out of hand. Randy did a great job demanding respect. The players will respect Al as much as they did Randy.”

DiMare noted the players reportedly in trouble “aren’t Al’s kids. All those kids are Randy’s kids. You get bad apples in a box.” DiMare also cautioned that Brown hasn’t been convicted.

“There are minor things that are going to happen in a school with 300 athletes,” DiMare said. “You shouldn’t be thrown off the team for minor things. Obviously, rape is a different story.”

Buchanan, reinstated during spring practice, reached a plea agreement and charges will be dropped if he completes a program for first-time offenders.

Golden isn’t alone in dealing with off-field problems. Since UF coach Will Muschamp succeeded Urban Meyer in December, the Gators have had four arrests, all for marijuana possession – two involving Janoris Jenkins, who was thrown off the team. Thirty Gators were arrested in Meyer’s six years, including a dozen for initial charges of felonies or violent misdemeanors.

“Marijuana was a problem when we got here,” Meyer recently told The Gainesville Sun. “I thought we put a little bit of a dent in it, but it’s still a problem. It’s an issue at a lot of schools.”

Despite two reports that Storm Johnson will be suspended for the opener against Maryland, his father Wesley Johnson said Golden “told me Thursday night that Storm is not suspended and that he is in good standing. There’s no truth to any transfer rumors. He’s not leaving.” Golden isn’t commenting publicly on the suspension reports.

Reggie UM Press Release

University of Miami center Reggie Johnson has elected to return to the Hurricanes for his junior season in 2011-12.

The 6-10, 300-pound center from Winston-Salem, N.C., tested the waters of the NBA Draft without hiring an agent, and participated in today’s combine at the Nets’ practice facility in East Rutherford, N.J., in front of scouts, coaches and personnel from approximately 27 NBA teams.

“It was great to go through this process and have the chance to talk to some teams,” said Johnson. “I got positive feedback about my hands and footwork, but I decided that it would be best for me to come back to school and continue to work on some things to get to that next level.

“I feel like we have a great team returning next year, and I want to work with my teammates at Miami to make the NCAA Tournament. The opportunity to do that is a big part of my decision to come back.”

“We’re very happy that Reggie has decided to return to our program at Miami,” said head coach Jim Larranaga, who is entering his first season at the helm for the Hurricanes. “I’m looking forward to working with him and his teammates to win an ACC Championship and compete in the NCAA Tournament.

“Reggie is a big, strong man who we expect to anchor both our offense and defense next season.”

Johnson returns to a veteran Miami squad in 2011-12 that loses just one player (Adrian Thomas) from a team that went 21-15 and advanced to the NIT quarterfinals. The Hurricanes return 86 percent of their scoring, 93 percent of their assists and 88 percent of their rebounding, while adding 6-11 redshirt sophomore Kenny Kadji (Florida), 6-5 redshirt junior Trey McKinney Jones (UMKC) and 6-2 freshman guard Bishop Daniels.

As a sophomore in 2011, Johnson was Miami’s leading rebounder and third-leading scorer, nearly averaging a double-double with 11.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. He converted 59.1 percent of his field goals – the third-highest single-season percentage in UM history, while adding a team-high 1.3 blocks per game. He finished the season ranked second in the ACC in offensive rebounds (3.5), fourth in both defensive rebounds (6.1) and overall rebounds and 20th in scoring.

Johnson – who earned All-ACC honorable mention honors – started 34 games last season, posting 13 double-doubles – including a 14-point, 20-rebound performance in the NIT first-round win over FAU. His 347 rebounds last season are the most for a Hurricane since Rick Barry posted a school-record 475 in 1964-65, while he scored in double figures 23 times, including four 20-point outings.

With the Heat playing late Saturday, mostly UM talk today:

• After watching coach Al Golden during a recent visit to campus, Jimmy Johnson told UM president Donna Shalala “she did good” by hiring him. “Really impressed with his attention to detail,” J.J. said, expressing a widely-held view.

But Golden’s first few months also have included dealing with several off-field issues: Jeffrey Brown’s arrest last week on a sexual battery charge; Ramon Buchanan’s March 18 arrest for resisting arrest and allegedly spitting on and trying to head-butt a police officer; and media reports that eight players will be suspended for a game or more because of three separate incidents, one involving UM police and at least one alleging marijuana use by multiple players.

CHATTER

• UM – which in the last week added defensive tackle Darius Smith (who is eligible to play this season) and former Memphis quarterback Ryan Williams (who is not) – also has reached out to two defensive players who would be eligible this fall: West Boca High defensive tackle Corey King and Hialeah defensive end/outside linebacker Gary Wooten.

But both need to be cleared academically. Hialeah coach Marc Berman said Wooten has offers from Purdue, Oklahoma State and others but wants to go to Miami, “which told him they will make him an offer” if he raises his test score.

• Williams received offers from only Memphis and Eastern Michigan coming out of Miramar High in 2009, “but he’s a late bloomer,” recruiting analyst Larry Blustein said. “He’s got a very good arm and is a good decision-maker. He and Stephen Morris are pretty comparable. Morris runs a little better.” Of UM’s 2012 quarterback contenders, Tate Forcier was considered by far the best and most heavily recruited coming out of high school before signing with Michigan.

• Despite two reports that Storm Johnson will be suspended for the opener against Maryland, his father Wesley Johnson said Golden “told me Thursday night that Storm is not suspended and that he is in good standing. There’s no truth to any transfer rumors. He’s not leaving.” Golden isn’t commenting publicly on the suspension reports.

• Among the four or five players leaving UM, only Travis Williams likely would have received much playing time, and as a backup. It appears at least two of the four freshmen linebackers will need to play in 2011. That group includes Gionni Paul, Denzel Perryman, Eddie Johnson and Antonio Kinard.

• Yes, it’s absurdly early, but ESPN’s Todd McShay projects UM’s Marcus Fortson and Ray-Ray Armstrong – if they turn pro early – would go 13th and 20th overall in the 2012 draft. He forecasts the Dolphins taking Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones as a mid-round pick.

• Though no players can be signed until the lockout ends, the Dolphins have been eyeing several undrafted ones. Among those they called during the draft to express interest: Ohio State running back Brandon Saine, one of the fastest sprinters in state history, North Carolina tight end Zack Pianalto and North Carolina State receiver Owen Spencer (60 catches, 912 yards in 2010).

• Here’s the root of Hanley Ramirez’s struggles: He’s hitting far more ground balls (61.6 percent, compared with 38.6 when he won the battling title in 2009) and as a result, far fewer line-drives (career-low 11.6 percent of his balls in play). Plus, he entered the weekend hitting .148 against right-handers (12 for 81), though his strikeouts are about even with past years. … The Marlins don’t see any available third baseman who would be an upgrade over the Greg Dobbs/ Wes Helms platoon and weren’t pursuing the Giants’ Mark DeRosa even before his recent injury.

Happy Mother's Day to all you momsters

While a lot of people may be celebrating Rondo's guts for playing with a dislocated elbow. Guts and courage aren't confined to one sex.

A tornado victim in Alabama was home when the tornado hit and wrecker her house. Her eight week old son was down the street at his grandmother's house.

Before the storm had ended, the mother was running down the hill to see if the grandmother's home was still there.

"They pulled nails out of my feet where I had to run through my house. We had to climb over a huge tree that landed on our house that was blocking the door, and I had to climb over that tree. I was determined to get to my son."
