Hassan

Hmmm, I thought the exact opposite about McDermott, seemed like Porter and Smith were just manhandling Him in the Spring. Physically, I think Wheeler is better than McDermott, but you're right, McDermott may have the mental side down more.

If we don't beat this BC team by 3 tds it's going to be a long season. Of course nobody truelly knows what this Years canes are capable of. All I know is I'm getting that nervous feeling in my gut...must be close to game time!

VA Cane

I bet the Great Mandingo is a wonderful pops....he is my favorite writer in the market...I look forward to his stint on CS. Will get the $ right and send a 10 spot wrapped up!!!

LB

"Cocane...I like your selections for Canespace LOF but I think OhioCane and Hassan are the offense and defense selections with LB as the Freshman and Solar, do to his recent triumphant return to the blog, is the Coordinator choice."

That's very kind of you. Thank you.

On a much more sinister note...

...my birthday luncheon takes place at 1 PM. The Kansas State game is at noon. I don't have a smartphone to stick headphones in my ears. The restaurant doesn't have a TV.

I think I beat Lewis Black in most uses of the f word in a minute.

We stop the run (our Achilles heel) and we win against bc. How's that for stating the obvious?

3td,s? the crazies are coming out again-I bet if we put 2 wins together there will be talk of a NC. I'll take a win against BC by a point, by a 1/2 a point--even a forfeit! as long as we are 1-0

The looming threat of Tropical Storm Isaac is already affecting the Miami Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes moved Saturday's practice 35 miles north to the Miami Dolphins' indoor facility. University officials have closed campus through Monday because of the storm, which is expected to bring high wind and several inches of rain Sunday and Monday.

Miami opens its season at Boston College on Sept. 1. The university said decisions on the week's practice schedule would depend on what happens with Isaac.

LB, invite one of your friends with a smart phone and the smarts enough to get the game tuned in on it, then play the, "It's my birthday," card to get to at least get updates every ten minutes.

That their alma mater hires Mark D'No as their defensive signal caller?

Thank you! I'll be here all week. Try the lobster.

For the second consecutive season, the Miami Hurricanes will open on the road at an Atlantic Coast Conference rival. Year
two of the Al Golden era begins Saturday at Boston College (3:35 p.m. EDT, ABC/ESPN2).

• In the first season under Golden, the Hurricanes finished 6-6 overall with a 3-5 ACC record.
• Due to the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac, the University of Miami campus closed at 7 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 25 and did not reopen until Tue., Aug. 28.
• Miami is 56-29-1 all-time in season openers, winning three of its last four.
• Saturday will mark the 29th series meeting with Miami holding a 23-5 advantage over Boston College.
• Boston College and Miami are meeting in the season opener for only the second time. In 1993, then-No. 4 Miami defeated
then-No. 20 Boston College 23-7 in Chestnut Hill.
• Miami is making its first trip to Chestnut Hill since 2007 — a 28-14 Hurricanes loss.
• Miami is 7-3 against Boston College in Chestnut Hill; the last Hurricanes win at Boston College was an 18-7 triumph in 2001
(Miami was ranked No. 1 in the nation).
• Junior QB Stephen Morris was appointed the starting signal-caller following the Miami Hurricanes’ first fall scrimmage in
August. Morris has five career starts under his belt, posting a 2-3 record as a starter.
• Nearly of 70 of Miami’s 2012 roster hails from Florida (67 players), including 21 that hail from Miami-Dade County.
• Gone from Miami’s program are 25 seniors from the class of 2011 — all of which graduated. The senior class was also
honored with the Jack Harding Team Most Outstanding Player Award. The 2011 senior class included All-ACC performers
Sean Spence (LB) and Tyler Horn (OL) as well as record-setting QB Jacory Harris.

Bayless and Stephen A. still flapping about Tebow. Too much....and also talking about Chad and TO. I was glad to see both of them released; honestly I cannot stand either one of them. Love to see them get Tatumized hard. I will say this: TO will be in the HOF one day just on numbers...very good stats. If you could keep a guy out for being an Ass#*le, it would be him. Chad...dream on Loudmouth wife beater you wont sniff it.

Staubach said character is very important; I agree on that point. He flat out said OJ shuold be removed....great back on bad team....but we all know the truth on him....How could you write a book called "If I did It"? pretty bad stuff. JMO

So we traded Maryland for NC State on the schedule. Would like to have opened at home vs Maryland!

Another season, same question: When will the Miami Hurricanes have a dominant tight end?

Bubba Franks. Jeremy Shockey. Kellen Winslow. Greg Olsen. Those days are long gone.

The year 2010 — 22 combined catches for 236 yards and a touchdown — marked the first time in 16 years that a UM tight end failed to make double-digit receptions (Syii Tucker and Gerard Daphnis each had nine catches in 1994).

The year 2011 — 28 combined catches for 266 yards and two touchdowns — wasn’t much better.

Tight ends coach Brennan Carroll, Fisch and Golden just hope that 6-5, 263-pound junior Asante Cleveland, now ahead of Clive Walford, Dyron Dye and David Perry on the depth chart, continues to improve after shoulder surgery to repair a torn right labrum in February 2011.

“Last year during camp I didn’t really perform as well as I thought I could,” said Cleveland, who played mostly on special teams in 2011, and had one catch for six yards in the season opener. “I was coming off the shoulder injury so I was still a little hesitant when it came to blocking, and still cautious about protecting my shoulder. But I put in so much work during the offseason with the strength and conditioning program, I shouldn’t even need to think about that anymore.

“We’re long overdue. The past couple years, tight ends haven’t really been that great in production for our offense.’’

Miami is NOT the only young team out there:

- #Sooners release their depth chart for the world to see. There are 13 freshman on the two-deep, NINE of those true FR.

86, Maryland is similar with 14 freshman on their two-deep.

5. Miami will be better than expected. Not many people have faith in the Hurricanes this year, with only 10 starters returning and limited depth at a variety of positions on the field. But I think Stephen Morris will be a major upgrade over Jacory Harris and there are plenty of young playmakers who will do well when pressed into playing time. Watch out for Duke Johnson, who has the potential to dazzle.

j.w.

Wow, when was the last time we heard Heather Dinich with something positive to say about our Canes, especially with the rest of the media saying the opposite.

4. Miami -- yes, the big, bad Hurricanes -- will be Notre Dame's easiest opponent. The Hurricanes' thin offensive line will have trouble against Notre Dame's defensive front. They are also coming off back-to-back games against Georgia Tech and NC State, while whatever fatigue issues the Irish had from their Dublin trip should be gone with the Sept. 29 bye. Chicago will be jacked for the Irish's Oct. 6 appearance.
