Jimbo Fischer knelt on the cold stone floor within the catacombs that served as the athletic department of the Florida State Seminoles. He had been waiting for several minutes for the transmission he had been informed was to come, a message from his master. As he waited, he reflected on the sudden turn of events in recents months. What should have been a victory lap for the Collective had become a rout, with ally after ally meeting unexpected and unfair fates. Key pillars like Jim Tressel, ousted from Ohio State after gripping much of the Midwest in a state of fear and terror. Or Urban Meyer, who had fled the land of noodling and jorts for the sterile confines of ESPN.

Finally the holographic projector came to life. A spectral image loomed before him. Yellow eyes glared at him, seeming to burn through him. He kneeled even further, avoiding the sinister gaze.

"What is thy bidding, my master?" asked Fischer. Of course, this was not his former master. But having turned his back o n his mentor Coach Bowden, he had embarked on a new path and embraced the teachings of the figure before him.

"There is a grave disturbance in the BCS," replied the holographic image. "The young coach who restored the Temple football program, I believe this to be the one who has inherited the Jimmy Johnson Matrix of Leadership and will restore the Miami Hurricanes."

Fischer gulped. He had hoped that the reports and rumors coming out of the Miami Herald and Canespace could be dampened, somehow withheld. But there was no denying it. Still, he had to try.

"He's just a boy," tried Jimbo, "Art Kehoe can't help him that much!"

"He could destroy us," said the holograph. "Al Golden must not be allowed to become a BCS caliber coach."

Jimbo shivered. By all accounts the Canes were well on their way. Team unity had been stressed, and a talented roster was in the best shape of their careers. Still, there was one chance....

"If he could be turned, he could become a powerful ally. Coach Paterno is due to retire soon. We must use our powers to push him to replace Joe."

"Yes," grinned the figure with sharpened teeth. "Yes...he could be a great asset. Can it be done?"

"He will join us or...."

"Spare me. If you fail, I'll use my powers personally at the next BCS Title Game. Leave my presence."

"As you wish, Lord Porter," gasped Fischer.

This year’s Hurricanes ready to overachieve

"It wasn’t like this in the old days, media members treating the Miami Hurricanes like, well, any other hum-drum Atlantic Coast Conference football team.

The ACC had players from Florida State and Miami speaking at the same time during the ACC Football Kickoff on Sunday, and most journalists chose the nationally touted Seminoles and quarterback EJ Manuel to gush about.

“No problem’’ was the attitude reflected by Canes center Tyler Horn and linebacker Sean Spence when asked how much it mattered that no one was expected to pick Miami to win the ACC title.

“I hope they expect nothing from us so we can go out there and show them how good we are,’’ senior Horn said. “I hope they have us last. We can make them eat crow by the end of the year.’’

The Hurricanes, coming off a 7-6 season that ended with losses against Virginia Tech, USF and Notre Dame in the Sun Bowl, begin the season on Labor Day night (Sept. 5) at Maryland. The prime-time showdown will pit the leagues two new coaches — UM’s Al Golden and Maryland’s Randy Edsall — in what ACC commissioner John Swofford is billing as an intriguing matchup.

“They’re two programs that are really important to our league that have had significant successes in the past and hopefully will again,’’ Swofford said. “And it’s so seldom you have the opportunity to showcase two new coaches playing against each other right off the bat — two potentially really quality programs that are important to our league.’’

Potential is not enough for the Hurricanes.

They want it now, and players such as Horn and Spence have one last chance to get it done in a league in which they have neither won nor advanced to the title game since joining in 2004.

“Just sit back and watch,’’ Horn said. “The more people who doubt us, the better. We’re going to try to prove them wrong. Doubt us now.”

But don’t ask them their goals. They are the team’s business, they said, and are to remain private.

“We have a set of goals, but those are internal,’’ said Horn, whose offensive line is considered the strength of the team but doesn’t know who it will be protecting. The quarterback derby between senior Jacory Harris and sophomore Stephen Morris will soon be in full swing.

“The way I see it is as long as I’m blocking my man, our quarterbacks are going to make plays,’’ Horn said. “It can be either one. It really shouldn’t matter as an offensive line who is behind us.’’

Horn and Spence believe Golden’s strict attention to mental and physical toughness are what will lift the Hurricanes to new heights this season amid a first-half schedule that has them facing the Terrapins, Ohio State, Kansas State, Virginia Tech and North Carolina.

“Coach Golden knows how to motivate us,’’ said Spence, a Butkus Award candidate. “He hits the right buttons to get us going. He has brought that passion. He has taken our toughness to another level — drills, conditioning, being a unity team.’’

Other topics covered Sunday:

Horn, on UM’s several players who have transferred or left the team, including running back Storm Johnson: “It’s addition by subtraction. If those guys aren’t going to help us win, then it doesn’t hurt to lose them. If they were a negative aspect for the team, then the best thing to do is to lose them. If they’re not going to buy into the program, you can’t win with them, so what’s the point of having them?”

Horn, on rumors of tackle Seantrel Henderson transferring: “I see Seantrel every day and he’s as happy as he can be. We’re out there competing and having a great time. If something happened I don’t know about it.’’

Spence, on defensive tackle Marcus Forston, who had knee surgery last season: “He’s doing great. He’s already running, sprinting. He’s almost full go.’’

Spence, on new defensive coordinator Mark D’Onofrio: “He’s intense. Oh my God, he’s intense. Great coach. You can’t say you don’t know what you’re doing because he immediately breaks everything down.’’

Horn, on new offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch: “His offense is similar to [former coordinator Mark] Whipple’s. Both are pro-style guys. Both came from the NFL. But coach Fisch is going to have us attacking from all different angles. We have a lot of weapons and he’s going to utilize every single one of them.’’

The Hurricanes begin practice Aug. 6 at Greentree Field. Most practices will be in the morning, including when the season begins."

dj, if that's the case, the fact that he had to throw more, then how about the other greats that had greatness catching for them? Where's J12's A. Johnsons, M. Irvins, Thrill Hills, K. Winslows, E. Sands, etc?


Posted by: 360Cane | July 25, 2011 at 11:13 AM


There are very few QBs in college football that have a WR corps more talented than Byrd, Benjamin, and AJ.

They were not well-coached, most would agree. I personally think it's MUCH more likely that the WRs will have a big improvement than J12 having a big improvement. The new WR coach seems really good, whereas the last guy was mostly just a recruiter.

J12 just seems far too interested in being cool, being the BMOC, and not really serious about being a good QB. Both the QBs have a lot of work to do, but Morris seems more interested in DOING that work. It will not surprise me at all if Morris is starting by mid-season.

I can't even remember the last time we had a WR fight for the ball.

We've all seen flashes of J12's greatness. Remember the nice corner route he dropped in TBen's hands against FSU at Doak? How about that monster 90+ yard drive to win against UVA?

If he can find consistency, he can be great. I'm hanging my hat on what's in-between the ears. If he can get that right, he'll be great. It's not up to coaching, but up to him.

Every player on this team has underachieved, and we expect great turnarounds by a bunch of them. Why not J12? Are we really done with him? Even if we are, I don't think Golden and co. are.

Only time will tell...

BTW, will his brace be off his hand or does he always have to wear it? That alone could make a huge difference. Oh and WRs that actually fight for the ball, too.

Doesn't this kid almost have all the QB records here as his own? Including ints? How is a kid not that good when he's in the ranks with the Steves and Vinnys? How can you not be that good, but go 33-0 in HS?

Posted by: 360Cane | July 25, 2011 at 09:40 AM


This is one of those "lies, damned lies, and statistics" situations. Because he played for OCs who liked to throw (and Whipple liked to throw DEEP a lot), he was naturally going to rack up some big numbers. Add in the fact that he was frequently called on to come back from big deficits (often these deficits were supplemented by Jacory's own Pick Sixes), and voila!

C'mon: the guy is not very good. Maybe some switch will finally flip in his brain this year, and he'll all of a sudden develop judgment. And maybe he'll learn to throw harder. But probably not.

Jacory is not that good--he's better than fielding NO QB, but not by much.

GTFOH with that "Give Jint 1 more chance" He's had a million chances and got out played by a true freashman with a 3-1 playing time advantage. 7-6 with Jint 9-4 with Morris

Posted by: solarcane | July 24, 2011 at 11:06 PM


I concur. If J12 decides to make himself special, let him roll. If he decides to be mediocre, hand the reins to a YOUNGER mediocrity, to smooth out the transitional period.

But no fans should have any illusions: neither of these guys is likely to make us forget Dorsey, or even Berlin.

solarcane

Jacory is not that good--he's better than fielding NO QB, but not by much
===============
So you would be with the group that thinks starting Morris right now and enduring a couple losses because of inexperience, is better for the long term, than starting an experienced quarterback that could lose just as many games by poor judgement, and be gone at the end of the season.

I feel that way.

I am being truthful about not worring alot about how the players project themselves on the social media sites. I think some just love the spotlight and get carried away.

Posted by: solarcane | July 24, 2011 at 10:41 PM


Sure. I don't disagree with any of that. All I was saying is that if a guy wants to be a Twitter star for being a ****up, he ought to be good enough on the field that the coach just can't bench him.

Jacory is not that good--he's better than fielding NO QB, but not by much. One HUGE problem for the 'Canes is that the team can't punish him for hubris that he can't back up.

solarcane

dj,
To be really serious about Jacory
I think he will always be immature for his age.
There is no comparison between him and Brandon Harris as far as maturity at the same ages for instance.

J12 could have the best football year of his life at QB and still be loony the rest of the week though.
If he is loose and confident he may play like he did at MNW as a senior.
If he is uptight and forces things he could be a disaster.

I am being truthful about not worring alot about how the players project themselves on the social media sites. I think some just love the spotlight and get carried away.

The only way we will know what we have is watching the team in games.
Everything we say, hear, and repeat during the summer is just our own opinions.
we need to respect what each other thinks but realize everything can change "when the lights come on."

Isn't Buchanon still on the team after beening falling down drunk?

Posted by: solarcane | July 24, 2011 at 10:18 PM


See, this is as telling an indictment as I've seen of the 'Canes LB talent level: a guy like Buchanan, who's AT BEST a mid-level linebacking talent, is not only not expelled, but not even benched for any serious length of time.

In the long run, Golden will be weeding out marginal guys like Cookie. But right now, he can't

But in the QB situation, Jacory gave Golden a good reason to bench him. If he were Kenny Stabler at Alabama, that wouldn't have amounted to anything. Instead, he's Jacory -- a kid who should have seen that he needed to be making all the right statements, because his talent is marginal.

solarcane

"right now the Qb bar is set pretty low in the ACC" haa haa

dj moonbat

When you get to worrying, say to yourself.
Who knows more about running the team, me or Coach Golden?

Posted by: solarcane | July 24, 2011 at 10:18 PM


I know. That's what I said about Shannon. It's practically famous. It's one of those things I have to learn from the shame of hindsight, instead of being so supercool and above everything that I never make a mistake.

Still, I think Jacory proved that his judgment is lousy with that tweet. Since I only care about on-field judgment, that's fine. But like I said, both potential starting QBs have questionable on-field judgment. That makes it particularly boneheaded for Jacory to give the coaches a reason to question his judgment more generally.

All other things being equal, would you rather have a QB who IS a f***up, or one who isn't?
==========================
All things being equal if Twitter was around when Walsh Vinny and Kelly were playing Qb we would be hearing exactly the same things, and the same people would take offence and the same people would have bigger things to worry about.

This will be maybe my one hundredth reply to how serious I take what 17 to 21 year old kids say or do except on Saturday for four qtrs:

I don't care

Isn't Buchanon still on the team after beening falling down drunk?

Golden sees every single J12 tweet too.

dj moonbat

Look, solar:

All other things being equal, would you rather have a QB who IS a f***up, or one who isn't?

And, realistically, all other things ARE equal. As you note above, both Morris and Harris have a penchant for picks.

So, if I'm a coach, I would be far more inclined to start the guy who doesn't publicly thank four or five SPECIFIC teammates for a night that got him so blotto he doesn't really remember it.

Sean Spence agrees with critics

PINEHURST, N.C. - Critics accused the University of Miami of underachieving last season.

UM linebacker Sean Spence is among that group.

"You could definitely say that," Spence said Sunday when asked if UM's 2010 results added up to less than the team's talent level. "We had a whole bunch of guys invited to the (NFL) combine and a whole bunch of guys get drafted. To finish 7-6, it just doesn't add up."

That, as well as a potential NFL lockout, caused Spence to return for his senior season instead of opting out of his final year to turn pro. Before he leaves Miami, Spence wants to experience the success the program enjoyed for many years before falling on tougher times recently.

"It's been very frustrating, especially coming from a high school that won 30 straight games," said Spence, who played at Miami-Northwestern. "I'm not trying to get used to losing."

Spence is expected to be the leader of a defense that has some question marks but enough talented players to make a possible run at an ACC Coastal Division title.

The 6-foot, 224-pound linebacker is coming off a sensational season and is on the watch lists for the Butkus, Lombardi, Nagurski and Bednarik awards. Spence declined to specify his personal goals for 2011 except for one thing - he intends to become more vocal with teammates.

"I like to lead by example, but the last couple of years, that hasn't gotten the job done," Spence said. "So I have to step out of the box."

Wake's loss is Miami's gain: Wake Forest linebacker Kyle Wilber said he and a few teammates met with coach Jim Grobe this year in the hopes of persuading cornerback Michael Williams to remain at the school.

Despite the pleas from his teammates and Grobe, Williams chose to transfer to Miami where he will be eligible to play this season. Williams is expected to compete for playing time at cornerback.

"Great coverage corner," Wilber said of Williams. "We knew in a one-on-one matchup with receivers, he was going to hold things down. We're going to miss him at Wake."

Williams started four games for the Demon Deacons in 2009 before sustaining a hamstring injury. He missed all of the 2010 season. Williams graduated in May and will be eligible immediately at Miami because he's transferring as a graduate student.

Good post mj. Tweets go to fans, friends and potential employers. All of these players want to make it to the NFL some day. Some are better prospects than others.

When NFL GMs start scouting elite players (as they are scouting Ray Ray, for example), they start looking into their background, talking to HS and college coaches and (unfortunately) reviewing social media (tweets) to learn more about the person they want to draft. When a GM is considering betting millions $ and his job on how successful a potential draftee will be, every bit of information will be placed under a microscope.

When you have marginal talent, hard work, good attitude, leadership and character can make a big difference for a player to get drafted and make a roster. That tweet did not help Jacory's NFL prospects, and Jacory also did not help his teammates he called out, BM21, TS8. dj81 and TB3.

Even during the off-season when no games are being played (no J12 bad throws, INTs, fumbles, improper reads or other on-the-field mistakes being made on the field), Jacory's immature mistake and bad judgment to hurt his teammates.

We need Jacory to grow up fast.

Yea old time Canes tweeting would have been off the chain

Great examples with Jerome Brown and Mel Bratton

Brett Romberg would have had a stand up act somewhere after about a week of tweeting.

TonyCane

You think that is bad Willie Will, my son has been playing select basketball and we have run across multiple sixth graders who are at least 6 ft tall. One was close to 6' 3". My wife joked after the game when she saw one of the players walking away that "he was looking for his car so he could drive home".

There's nothing like watching your son's team, composed of great players, getting squashed by enormous kids who have a foot on them and outweigh them by 50+ pounds.

That said, Al Golden needs to come to Central Texas and come to some of these tournmanets.

The Canes are gonna turn this thing around this yr. Not just get better. Its time to dominate again. Especially in the 4th quarter. Last yr we ran out of gas and folded in the fourth. It was a mental thing too.

Really impressed with the new work ethic. We are going to be ready hit second gear in the fourth. I remember in the JJ days, we just worked harder than anybody else. We wore them down in the heat. I want to see us dominate again.

Now I'm not a total J12 sympathizer, but to say he is not dedicated because he had a few drinks in the off-season might be a little harsh.

Dan Marino was a serious quarterback and he did alot.more than get drunk.........

Sure, but as far as football, that guy was as serious as a heart attack. J12 hasn't shown me ANYTHING that would indicate he takes his position seriously.

GURU

How bad Will j12 be when.he shatter all the U passing records..some all y'all hate on jacory like he slept with your wife..

On the plus side.....I've never heard of a mentally handicapped person quitting at ANYTHING.

People with full capacity could stand to learn some things from them.

Hurri

BAMF....

That's just not what you want to hear from your quarterback

IraqiCane

Right.

That is not a tweet from a guy who really gives a crap about becoming a serious QB at the U. It's just not. Sure, you can have the occasional celebration you don't remember, but don't name names.

I have a son who was born as mentally and physically handicap... hes 24 but his mental level is about 12 ... and his brain has been damaged to the point where he cant quite the voices. Not only that but he sees imaginary characters.
The medication he takes quiets him down and prevents him from raging. lots of fun.

Wow. That's tough stuff. I freak out when my kids scrape their knees; I don't know how I could deal if one of my kids was going through that kind of suffering. My prayers are with you.

The fact that a senior is even-steven with a sophomore with limited playing time tell the whole story why Jacory "Jint" sucks so bad and everytime he tweets I'm thinking film study, tossing passes to WR, working on footwork. Jint should cut off all social media and eat and sleep football

Panthers 20

Is anyone doing an online dynasty for CaneSpace?

(Sorry if this has already been asked)

Setoguchi yikes sorry I botched his name above!

CGNC

Hey what changes did your Sharks make over the off season?

CGNC

CC- I know! I do not want to hear her sorry a## on any show telling about how she was "abused" ya da ya da and that the little girl drowned. They usually do when you duct tape them.

canechic

Seriously cgnc....if only they had found Caylee's body earlier they could have had so much more proof :( .

CGNC

Mi@ - sorry to hear about your son.

Six - I figured Baez would be shopping his story and hers around. What a complete joke - first he has no control over half his experts and then when he got nervous and didn't think the trial was going well he tried to say she was incompetent to stand trial. Someone needs to remind him that it was not anything special that he did, the state just did not prove their case for murder. And now there is some computer forensic guy that said the software to determine the amount of times the search for chloroform was used is flawed and that he tried to let the police and state know that it was not 84 searches, but one search and they did not want to listen

I'm confused. Is this CANESPACE or PAINSPACE!!!??

canechic

Oh Miamicane I feel for you, so sorry. Watching 20/20 last night just broke my heart. Did you see it?

My brother also has a slight form of mental handicap, not as severe as your son. He will never be able to live on his own, so Angry and I will have to take care of him if something happens to my Mom. One of the reasons Angry went back into the Army is because when he retires, if my brother is living with us and a handicap dependent, we can put him on Tri-Care and he will at least have insurance. Insurance was a real driving force in Angry's decision to re-enlist for the whole family.
