Stop with the excuses.

The Sun was in our eyes?

The wind was blowing really hard?

We was robbed by the refs?

It was too cold?

We are too young?

It was raining at the time?

The grass was mowed too high?

The Ibis had a bad game?


The University of Miami baseball team is set to host the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team for a 7 p.m. exhibition contest Saturday, December 8 at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

The mission of the WWAST, comprised of young veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs while serving their country in the military, is to raise awareness, through exhibition and celebrity softball games, of the sacrifices and resilience of military personnel, and highlight their ability to rise above any challenge.

The WWAST is comprised of young, competitive, athletic veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs post-9/11, while serving their country in the military. The team includes individuals with a variety of amputations. Some are still in the service, others are attending college, and some have moved on to new careers.

Pregame festivities to the game will begin at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds from the game, including $10 general admission tickets available at the gate, will go to the Wounded Warriors.

All of U DENO haters just remember this:

When this defense starts to play better and win games on their own next year U will not have ANY voice here on da blog. U will be shamed and humiliated and have to eat RAW crow BIG time.

And WillieWill, OhioCane and I will LOL at your faithless, worthless and sorry azzes. YEAH I SAID IT!


I love seeing these stats... As a high school coach, I think most parents believe about 50% of all high school athletes are getting full ride athletic scholarships! LOL

Ahh reality... such a b!tch sometimes...

The average kid, (and parent), just don't get how "special" most of these top flight athletes really are... (Warren Sapp was said to be able to dunk a basketball.)


If our D starts "pulling it all together," it will be IN SPITE of D'No... NOT BECAUSE of him.

We COULD be so much further ahead of the game NOW if we had a halfway decent D Coordinator.

Yeah... we'll get better on D... could we REALLY get any worse?

If you D'No lovers want to jump on his sorry arse band wagon... who amongst you is willing to bet we'll be in the top 10 in ANY defensive category next year?

We'll get better... but we'll still be MEDIOCRE... vault it. Maybe top 50... maybe top 40? WooHoo!

D'No is in WAY ABOVE his pay grade... there are probably 40 or 50 D coordinators with better results and resumes who would JUMP at the chance to work at The U with our "young" athletes that D'No blames for keeping us at the bottom of the NCAA Defensive stats...


I think we will win at least one more game and maybe two next year only because we will have all players a year older into the system and a senior qb.

The defensive players will play faster and stronger and be able to make up for a little of dnos cluster*$5# on their speed alone. We will suck on D compared to real Cane teams but will look 50% better than the circus out there lately.

Go Canes beat Mich State! ESPN 7:30

YEAH... what HE said...

"We will suck on D compared to real Cane teams but will look 50% better than the circus out there lately."

I agree 100% Solar... we'll RISE to mediocrity! (And many will SING D'Nos' praises!)


Its sad but I really think that's what we are in for til we get an AD and president that take the football team seriously.

Deserve Victory is looking a lot like Custer explaining to his men how they can't lose.


Ya know... I don't LIKE being so negative about ANYTHING Cane related... but, I just can't stomach hearing how many blogging here are happy with defensive stats that go from "UNBELIEVABLY f*^king horrible," to just "f*^king horrible."

This is The U d@mmit! Quit trying to justify this sub par nonsense!


Custer.. too soon


Custer.. too soon

Canes playing #14 Mich st tough.

off to watch Survivor

Go Canes!!


Lol. But seriously what was Miami ranked in defense at the end of the year ?


I feel what you're saying Solar...

Too many people are willing to shoot for a really low target, and when they hit it, feel like they accomplished greatness...

Where are the high standards we USED to have? I guess I'm just too old and "Living in the Past" as many here want to constantly accuse "true" Cane fans of doing. (Yeah, I'm old enough to get the Jethro Tull reference too.) LOL

I like Golden, and I like "U Tough." What I DON'T like are excuses, and "settling for" and even celebrating bottom tier stats that show minor improvements.


I'm not sucking on no d I'm a real cane. 17-14 Canes


116 out of 120. Woo HOO!



(Give me a break... )

AnthonyJManis aka Antcane

31-27 msu at the half. No charge what?

orange 'n green in the vein

It would literally require D'No calling plays blind to turn in a worse result next year, or this just completed one for that matter, so yeah, SOUP is not impressing me with his 'limb climbing' prediction next year. Plus Frank Broyles will personally take that award away from D'No if by some stolen election he does end up getting his hands on it next year when they climb to the middle of the pack statistically so as not to taint his legacy with the strain of failure that is the mutant from Philly's coaching. Double digit win regular season next year with a win over UF or else it's going to get ugly(er) around here!


Ok....TWO THINGS.....

First, the NFL didn't suspend Suh because they couldn't tell or know if the kick was intentional...so if you dont know, how the heck can you fine him??? All about the money!!

Second...about our D...I am HOPING that our youth will grow and it will help, BUT, those mature players still have to be in the right system and/or place of the field. Howard made grow into a great DB, but we will never know if D'No keeps lining him up 7 yards of the ball AND having him back pedal another 5 yards before the ball is snapped. I got to be honest, I think D'No is in over his head. The talent we got barely kept us from being dead last in D. Im not a defensive guru by any means, but common sense would tell you if it is 3rd and 5, dont line your db's 7 or 8 yards back, idk how many times I saw that and just wanted to throw my remote through the dam tv! lol And rather than mix it up to add pressure he just brought EJ44 up to the line a lot, and occasionally blized Bush...thats it...no other blitzing or mixing it up. I honestly don't see it getting better, even with the kids maturing, unless Golden puts his hands on the D and makes changes.


I hope your right soup! I for one will judge this coaching staff and players next year! 2013 - 10 wins should be expected. Soup are you the same as 86? I am still new to da canespace....

Holy crap! The BUC actually sounds like a real home-field advantage when the crowd actually shows up and decides to cheer! Like the basketball team this year, they have a lot of useful pieces that you can do some damage with even if big Reg is still playing in molasses sometimes.


Expectations should be to at least match what the canes did in 2009. Roster composition for the 2013 team is similar to that squad...a team of mostly sophomores and some juniors. On the plus side we'll have a senior qb vs an oft-injured Harris.


Yes Jack... Soup & 86 are the same guy... the Big Kahuna... the Main Man... the one who started and maintains this wonderful blogspace.



And take NO d with ya

Morris is just as injury prone unfortunately TC. He's avoid the knock out cold shot so far though.

I'll tell you right now, the lie at Tennessee will go spiraling down the drain. That program is basically eclipsed at this point by Texas A&M in the SEC already and won't be coming back anytime soon.


I for one do NOT want Golden to go... (Even at the expense of keeping D'No.)

There, I said it!



Who this guy from rantsports? Never heard of him or his site.....Is this a guy who acutally knows things? Or is he a person trying to get some people learn who he is and getting people from UM to click on his story.


Well maybe he does know things just talked to a buddy of my a UT alum and the rumors from his side hes reading is the AD of UT is in Miami tonight. HMMMMM

orange 'n green in the vein

How long until Al can get that "Deserve Vicotry," printed up in orange and white?


orange 'n green in the vein

pbc, Al's got to interview at every basketball school (in this case it's women's basketball school) he can get in the door at so his agent can work on that lifetime extension he so richly deserves after getting those six wins and a date with BCC earned him a look at this year.


Hi all. Straightening out our defense everyone? LOL- love the Custer reference. In Florida for a few days using a tablet to post....taking some getting used to.....


Its on Rivals that Al is interviewing at UT. I dont have a membership there so dont know what is being discussed.


Pbc we need an AD.....


uncle Luke tweeted that AL goes to UT


if AG did go, who would come? I'm fish would be pretty close to the top with program's future in flux


Wow Nice win for Miami B Ball!!



Interview with Le batard today.. at the end Al promised that he would be here next year...

orange 'n green in the vein

Great win by the basketball team tonight, Izzo waived the flag pretty quick, wanted to get out of there before they rushed the court obviously. I'm telling you, the '99 team's got a challenger for the best in school history on their hands this year!

orange 'n green in the vein

mi@, Al Golden is a self promotion dynamo. Coaching . . . not so much.



lol.. rumor mill starting up weeeeeeee

Terrance Sullivan

Great win by Our Canes basketball team beating Michigan State tonight at the BUC.


Thanks roach!!


Big Reggie shoots free throws really well.
Great win tonight,

Terrance Sullivan

OGV you are spot on our BBall team.


& When or if Garrius Adams comes back from injury, the hoops team will be even deeper. Now the loss to Florida Gulf Coast looks like a fluke. I just hope they don't let it go to their head & slip up before conference play. They have a chance to win the ACC...


Finallya big win for the basketball team. It does help with the stench of hte loss to FGCU and St. Leos (I know the St. Leos game didn't count, but still). Now hopefully they can follow it up with a nice run. One thing that concerns me is that they live by the three and die by the three, we were hitting our shots tonight but as we've already seen that isn't something you can count on every night. Hope to see them take advantage of our bigs down the road.

orange 'n green in the vein

Wasn't Durand Scott out for the Gulf Coast loss? That's the key to this team this year. I like the three man rotation they can use in the front-court, each of those guys has complementary skills to each other, Kenny can kind of face up to the rim, Reggie is just a long night in the making for whoever draws that assignment on the block, Grimble kind of has the poor man skill set of both Kenny or Reggie depending on who he's going to spell. Larkin can get his own shot and fill the basket in bunches or run the offense efficiently, Durand can stretch the floor and hurt you off the dribble, Trey's got good size and deep range which means he's a great compliment to the other four guys. It's a legit five man offensive team with the starters and Jim is getting them to play intelligent defense with a little zone thrown in here and there. Well constructed basketball team all around IMO, real pick your poison type of dilemma for the opposition every night.



With youngsters like Jekiri & Daniels, as they gain experience they can be solid contributers later in the season. I don't know whats been going on with Rion Brown but he looks like he has regressed. If they can get him going, they'll really be deadly. Coming off of the Bench with Gamble, Jekiri, Brown, Daniels, a healthy Garrius Adams & this team could make a deep run in March. Lets see how they respond to this big win...
