So, I guess that in the end, it turns out none of us like feeling jaded after all, now do we?

No, we certainly do NOT!

Hassan...the FULL Swasey interview will have to wait until August when Fall camp starts. I will do a Part I and a Part II with Part I running later this week.

More to follow...

Just like Tyler Horn, I am on the ball.

Morning all.

Hey, If coach McDonald can get these guys to catch the ball on a regular basis, he will have done his job.

Wurd on da skreet is that in voluntary, player led, 7 on 7 drills is that WR Dorsett is very hard to cover on any type of quick, short routes and that WR Scott is a tough matchup for CBs because of his size and with safeties because of his size and speed.

Looks someone has Solar flair.

But damn: where's the Byrd Man?

good day, friends, finally done traveling for a week or so. And the Cane sabbatical is about to end for me.

Sometimes no news is good news!

The news was only about the two Freshmen WR. Byrd and Benjamin are still likely starters at this point with Streeter, A. Johnson, Thompkins and D. Johnson all rotating through.

There are a few others that are still vying to break into the top 6 and get some PT.

We understand that AJ recently had what we will call a positive "intervention" that involved a few players and coaches. The main focus was to give him support and to get him right for the Fall camp and this season.

Aight. The Blur and the Byrd Man still could do great things. And I don't use the word "great" very much. The only thing keeping them from being the U's next Wayne/Moss combo was coaching. Let's hope there's still time.

j.w.

I am CG! I'll go Wednesday unless I can get in on Tuesday. Can't wait, I had to miss time because of travel for work and vacation, so I'm really anxious to get back out. And someone is offering a "free" Apaloosa, so I have to look into it. :)
How are you doing? Riding every day?

Soup,
Is Dorsett that good or could it be our Corners are going to be that bad? I know we are hurting in that area.

I remember asking those SAME types of questions for the last 3 or 4 offseasons... hopefully, THIS YEAR, the answer is Dorsett is THAT GOOD!

orange 'n green in the vein

SOUP, your boy AJ got the beer belly called out didn't he? You can give just a little wink, wink to affirm that the Keystone budget was reigned in to nothing for him by his teammates instead of just flat out saying it. He might end up redshirted due to freshman favoritism (yes I went there with your precious Golden!) in the WR corps this year anyway which could pay an actual dividend for him by giving him a year to get with the program and work his way back into shape for '12 when he'll have a chance to contribute and then maybe get drafted based on combine potential rather than disappointing college production making him a passed over player.

Old Skool

More ego than brains

Chad Ochocinco is at it again. Now the wide receiver says he will wrestle alligators.

One bite, bye bye career.

CaneRock

I don't know if they were doing it before, but IF they weren't, it's good to here that the we have players doing voluntary workouts.

Old Skool

Maybe Chad will try to wrestle the alligator Greek style -- in the nude.

That would certainly up the ante.

Herbieibis

OGV,
It shouldn't of taken A.J.4 years to get his head right. I think Goldie doesn't reshirt him & says adios and thanks for wasting a schollie.He's another Ryan Moore. One good season and that for him was his freshman year. He might catch 15 balls this year.

I am with Solar! :)

Slow/no news day?

Herbie, OchoEgo is over 30 and still hasn't gotten his head on right yet. AJ still can turn it around.

Here's my answer:

ALL of the above. Can't say more.

AJ is just lucky they are renewing his scholly this year. Talk about diminishing returns...

The latter. No new news I've seen anywhere. Other than the RB Brown is going to Pitt, not Miami now.

Did anybody REALLY expect anything from AJ this year?

I'd say about 50% of the team can fall under that category. One bad apple in a bunch can make the entire bunch bad.

The only thing I'm looking forward to, is to see all this off season stuff make it on the field. Seen and heard tons of positives coming out of U camp lately...

J12 may surprise...

SOUP

OGV...I don't want to comment on the negative, but even the casual observer can assume that there are "issues" he is dealing with. The players and coaches are supporting him to get right.

He still has a chance to good things at UM but he will have to make the effort to overcome some obstacles that have impeeded his progress after his freshman year.

2002nemo

No offense Western PA, but why would ANYone want to go to PITT?

raizecane

One bite, bye bye career.

That ended a few seasons ago.......

SOUP

STOP THE PRESSES!

I forgot about Allen Hurns at WR.

Some say that Hurns has made SERIOUS progress and is ready to compete for a top 4 spot and may be ahead of a few of the others I mentioned above.

A few of those others would benefit from fewer "late nights" but that's all I'll say on that. That's on them.

SOUP, I'm just doing the math and coming up with 21 birthdays for the guy and then remembering that Fox's package liquor is right down the street from campus. Then his belly explodes three times bigger in one off-season in the pics I've seen of him and, well, wink-wink, you know?

dj moonbat

Look, Aldarius can catch. That's the first requirement for a wideout, so he's not BAD. He's just, you know, not an athlete. At all. Which means he should have gone to a school with a less prestigious WR tradition. Maybe one that's located farther away from Fox's Liquor.

UMike

wow..2 years ago people had AJ penciled in as the next 1st rounder lol...hasnt he been injured? I think he is a good player, not fast, but good hands when healthy. Check out his freshman year when healthy...jmo of course

He's a possession receiver. You better be an AWESOME possession receiver if you want to start at Miami. (See Irvin, Michael; Wayne, Reggie.) AJ is not that.

He may have initials that remind certain people of Andre Johnson, but he's got neither the speed nor the strength.

Herbieibis

Why would anyone want to go to Pitt, Uh cause they couldn't start here!

A.J. Stands for ATE JUNK! I got big because I ate. While my teammates lifted to get big, I ate and you could probably throw in a couple brewskies.

I've heard of that place. Late night window open until 4 AM in the back. At least that's what they tell me. LOL

There are three Liquor stores across the street from UM. Don't know if AJ or any UM players have been to any or all three?

Don't give up hope on him yet, but if he tweets this weekend from KOD at 4 AM like he did last weekend then well...

For the second straight season, University of Miami senior Bianca Eichkorn has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Commissioner John Swofford announced on Thursday.

Eichkorn, a native of Tengen, Germany, was earlier named the ACC Player of the Year after going unbeaten in conference singles play, with all but one of those wins coming in straight sets. She closed her career with a 38-3 overall record in ACC matches, including wins in her final 21 matches against league opposition.

An All-American at singles and doubles and the winningest singles player in Miami school history, Eichkorn finished the season ranked No. 5 nationally in singles play and teamed with Anna Bartenstein for a No. 4 ranking in doubles.

No such thing as a "free" horse. Granted the economy is down, but if it's free there is probably a reason ;-D Been hot here so I ride or do groundwork with him in the evenings

Reaching Two CWS in a Row Is to Be Celebrated

Ron Morris, The State - June 27, 2011

LET’S FORGET FOR a moment that South Carolina is defending it's national title beginning tonight at the College World Series. To merely reach the championship series in back-to-back years is a remarkable accomplishment in itself.

Ray Tanner knows the difficulty of reaching such heights. So, too, does Kevin O’Sullivan. Tanner has brought five teams to the College World Series and played for the championship three times. O’Sullivan brings his second consecutive team to Omaha, but a year ago returned home after two games.

“That’s more than you can ever dream of as a coach and as a player,” Tanner said of back-to-back title appearances. “It’s hard to do. I know there are some programs that have been here a long, long...
