Playoff Coming In 2014-15 On June 26, 2012, the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee agreed to launch a four-team playoff beginning with the 2014-15 season. The new format will continue at least 12 years, through the 2025-26 season.

The semifinals will be rotated among six bowl games and will be played either New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.

The championship game, to be managed by the 11 conferencesand rotated among neutral sites every year, will be on a Monday at least six days after the last semifinal game. A selection committee will rank the teams for the playoff.

The BCS Standings are composed of three elements that are weighted equally: the USA Today Coaches poll, 2) the Harris poll, and 3) the average of six computer poll rankings. The highest and lowest computer ranking is discarded each week with the computer average based on the remaining four rankings. The BCS Standings are compiled and released by the National Football Foundation eight times during the season, beginning this year on Sunday, October 16 and ending on BCS Selection Sunday, December 4.

Ohio...just listened to the Golden interviews from yesterday and today. I can't tell if he is either worried about the team or hiding something really good like a good poker player ready to call someone's bluff?

Sounds like a great football coach to me.

I think they will be really good and surprise some people they way the 1980s Canes did, but that is based on what I have seen.

As 86 said, they lost 6 games last year by an average of 5.5 points. They simply lacked the speed, stanima or strength or speed to make crucial plays. Golden as fixed that.

Hendricks (1966-68), known as the “Mad Stork” for his tall (6-7), angular build and his dominating defensive play,
started three seasons at defensive end for the Miami Hurricanes under coach Charlie Tate. A three-time All-America for the Hurricanes, he earned consensus, fi rst-team All-America honors in 1967 and 1968, and led Miami to a 20-11-1 record. He ended his collegiate career as Miami’s all-time leading tackler with 318 hits in 1968. That year, he was named UPI National Lineman of the Year and fi nished 5th in the Heisman Trophy balloting. He went on to a spectacular 15-year NFL career as an outside linebacker playing in 215 consecutive games with the Baltimore Colts, Green Bay Packers, Oakland and L.A Raiders. During his time in the NFL, he helped lead his teams to four Super Bowl championships, was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, four times selected as an All-Pro and fi ve times named second-team All-Pro. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1987 and was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990. He was named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary All-Time team and to the NFL’s All-Decade team of the 1970’s. He was inducted into the University of Miami Hall of Fame in 1980, to its Ring of Honor in 1997 and had his jersey number—number 89—retired, also in 1997.

UM Recruiting Update:

California QB Ricky Town went 10 for 10 with 3 touchdown and just under 200 yds, in the first 13 minutes of his first game of the season. This was against an average team, they went to the run after first quarter.

orange 'n green in the vein

86, anywhere to find out what his astronomical QB rating for that game ended up being? It's probably close to 1000 if you use college arithmetic.

86Cane

OGV...I am not sure about the QB rating for Ricky Town but I do know this: Miami Killian 42 Homestead 21 - FINAL

Why in the hell do they even have blogs on the M.H. P.B.P S.S. or at least why do they have a comment section where anyone can post? Does anyone that post a comment here post comment there? Man I never realized until 08 that these sites exsited and the same guy post over and over again. Thanks to CEO and all the others that montior this blog and keep those idiotic comments off of here.

Ohio_Cane

Oh no... Spence carted off field with "serious leg injury". Prayers out to Sean.

Ohio_Cane

Not for the squeamish... Spence's leg injury - http://t.co/rzvQEjBx

Praying for Sean. Always a good young man..

South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt game tonight gave another reason to hate the $EC. Blatant pass interference against U.S.C. late in the fourth quarter on a fourth down play not called allowing the gamecocks to win. This happens time and again in this conference. It seems like the referees are under direct orders to not allow a lower tier team beat one of their ranked teams.

Easy way to keep your teams at the top of the polls is to not let them lose in conference play to teams like Vandy, Kentucky, etc....

CGNC

LOL - watching the Leach coached Washington State team now

orange 'n green in the vein

G & T, some people go to that tired chestnut, "every team thinks they don't get the calls," in a situation like that but it was biased officiating there. Vandy certainly didn't get that call which was as obvious and blatant as you can get on P.I. I'm not sure they had enough to actually get that in the endzone like they needed, but they certainly were denied their chance to do so thanks to the refs in that situation. Carolina looks very overrated and can't pass block at the moment on anything longer than a slant route, top 20, but not top 10 right now as they are going to have to zone read it on offense with multiple QB's and win a lot of games in the 20's or lower with the defense which won't get it done for more than a month and a half.

Per Rotoworld, Spence has a torn ACL, torn LCL, and dislocated kneecap. Career threatening.

Well the good news for Sean is that he has a degree from a prestigious private university to get him through life.

SJMPARMAN

I don't understand the post. It is morbid at best. As a FAN you hope for the recovery of your guy. You do that not because you are some homer but because, as a decent human being, considering what sacrifies he has made to the school, we owe the player something for the time he entertained us as a player. I don't get the immediate thought that somehow his career is over. It may be but it may not. As a FAN you typically root FOR the player and don't deposit him in the trash heap. Very odd.

If the Dwight Stephenson injury happened today, he would be able to play again in a year or so, and not be disabled. We should all root for the positive result instead of just saying he had a good education. It is morbid, it is weird, and does not reflect well on the poster, IMO.

Montreal-Cane

Sean Spence is a great human being and he will come back. Just get the same surgeons as Frank Gore and Willis...

canesteeler

I am bummed Sean tore his knee to shreds.

canesteeler

Willis McGehee had the worst knee injury I ever saw and rehabbed so I am confident Spence will make it back.

Hassan


Spence still gets paid. He will be good to go. Let him come back strong next year.

orange 'n green in the vein

Oh, I get it now, you think the NFL adds something of value to society so not being able to play a game for money is some kind of great loss to an individual. See, I don't agree, I think the NFL is pretty much worthless all around, so thus the good news for Spence is he got a quality education for free that he can rely on when it comes time to do so.

Yes, remarking that he received a quality education is, "morbid, it is weird, and does not reflect well on the poster, IMO."

How dare I remark on the quality education he received for free to rely on when his playing days are over, which on average would be in six years if he made the opening day roster. Sean should be a lock for that with one good leg, shouldn't he?

#1 I am a big Drew Brees fan, he is great and i love he does it while being short. He kind of reminds me of Steve Nash, he does not beat you with eye popping athleticism like Mike Vick but his gifts are even more effective.

This video is something that amazes me, Brees i am sure is a lot more accurate then the avg NFL QB and has an elite arm.

I want to say that accuracy could be the #1 physical talent that a QB needs and that is also the one physical aspect that Morris lacked in the past. I think his arm talent is elite and if he can hone his accuracy then he can make the next step to a NFL level QB next year. That is the thing this team needs.

Panamacitycane

Good luck to Spence..he will pull through. No matter what or who you never want to see that happen.

4-Real

Ogv, wish Sean Spence the best & move on pleeze! U make it sound if u could care less if Spence ever walks again. Know U don't mean no harm but a good kid's career is at stake, therefore this ain't the time 2 be promoting UM academics. Besides, if u had a choice which would YOU choose, a common to good job in the working world or multimillion dollar NFL career?

Actor Eddie Murphy dead :(

Felipe

Well said OGV. Agree completely.

As far as Spence goes, the severity of the knee injury and dislocation begs the question as to PCL involvement. ACL + LCL + PCL with kneecap dislocation is considered a limb threatening injury, so no, this isn't the same as the "terrible triad" common injury we see runningbacks like McGahee get (meniscus, MCL, ACL). This could be far worse. Hoping to hell it isn't.

IraqiCane

Eddie Murphy died? No! Just another case of your average Twitter celebrity death hoax.

GO CANES!!!

I heard its College Colors day!!!

Wow, another former Cane out for the season. Javarris "Baby J" James tears ACL

CGNC

Eddie Murphy death looks like a hoax

IraqiCane

Hey Ohio where did you get the phone case?

CGNC

Does the type of turf being played on have anything to do with these knee injuries?

Another ProCane Goes Down: OL Rashad Butler is out for the season with a torn triceps. That's 3 ProCanes in 24 hours.

"Another ProCane Goes Down: OL Rashad Butler is out for the season with a torn triceps. That's 3 ProCanes in 24 hours."

Good grief.

UpNorthCane27

Thanks Ohio,

And another 1... proCane WR Tommy Streeter placed on IR ending his 2012 season. Damn.

Hassan

* Dorsett was asked to compare Stephen Morris to last year's starter, Jacory Harris.

"There are some similarities, but it's pretty different," Dorsett said. "Stephen is a great leader; Jacory was too, but Stephen is taking control of the whole team this year. Everyone knows Stephen's arm is stronger, and I think he's more accurate, too. He's worked on that a lot. I also would say Stephen is faster."

Dorsett says that Morris hasn't hesitated to point out mistakes players are making.

And that includes when Dorsett might have a miscue

Hassan


Streeter needed that RS year. I do not think he is injured so bad that he wont be able to work out and run routes soon. So this year allows him to work on himself in a pro environment and next year he should not only make the team but have a chance to start.

Felipe

Yup, horrible horrible 24 hours for Pro Canes. Esp. Sean Spence, unusual type of knee injury.

On the other hand, gives Streeter a chance to learn more. Rod Streater was looking more polished than Tommy to this point. Hopefully he blows up opposite Torrey Smith in 3 years.

Hassan


Someone tell this idiot that this is 2012


Tom Fornelli: BOSTON COLLEGE (+ 2½) over MIAMI.
It's not a huge gamble by any means to take Boston College over Miami ? B.C. beat Miami
last year, in Miami ? but the Eagles are underdogs at home, so it
counts. While things are far from perfect at BC, Miami is dealing with
so many suspensions and injuries (not to mention a looming NCAA
investigation that could break during the season, or cost the Hurricanes
another bowl game at the end) that a letdown is only logical.
Considering Boston College has 10 returning starters on offense, I think
the Eagles can pull off the early surprise.

UpNorthCane27

remind me to look for him at the stadium tomorrow and smack some sense into this guy hassan!!!!!
