That's what I think of it.

ESPN Power Poll (not one of the "official" polls) has UM at #13:

It was a fantastic week for the Hurricanes. Miami hammered No. 1 Duke by 27 points and topped Florida State on Sunday to remain the lone undefeated team in ACC play, and it also got big man Reggie Johnson back from a broken thumb sooner than expected.

COACHES POLL HAS CANES AT #15.

Jorge Milian ‏@caneswatch

UM has played three teams ranked among the Top 9 by coaches: Duke (5), Arizona (8) and Michigan State (9). Beat Duke and Michigan State.

Keef still keefin'...

"He wore a head-to-toe Miami sweatsuit to an area high school football game last fall and drove the Hurricanes' faithful wild -- until photos of him in Florida State gear hit the Internet. He even tweeted "SemiVolCaneTiger" on Jan. 16 just for the heck of it."

Miami bringing out the big guns tonight for an in-home visit with NY RB/FB Gus Edwards. Golden, Coley, & Richardson will all be there #Canes
-------------------------------------

With the hire of Coley and some of the targets being between UM and FSU, anyone think Golden doesn't wanna stick it to Jimbob this year? A sort of "I warned U" statement from last year when he said "Get your licks in now".

He's almost making it obvious, and I LOVE IT!

Just read back over these today and caught this and realized I didn't respond.

Coach is good friends with Beliema, that's why it was Wisky before.

Agree. Still no love after thrashing #1 Duke and FSWho

UMike

I will take #14..let them sleep on Miami..besides what really matters is our seed in the tourny

j.w.

14 is a big jump, but not big enough! But rankings are meaningless in this sport. Get a 3 seed or better and you've got a great shot to be playing for a while in March.

Hassan


Jekiri is an important player for our future. He runs well for a big man, he still looks like a freshman sometimes but i like how we sets screens and have a good motor for a big guy.

The loss @ FGCU is going to hurt this team in rankings for now. Win @ V-Tech and @ NC State this week and they should be top 10 for sure.

It was a horrible loss. It could still haunt them come tournament ranking time as well; unless they finish with only 5 or 6 L's.

UMike

Shocker..

Keith Bryant says his latest trip to USC was the best yet. Did South Carolina move up his list after his official visit to Columbia?

CoCane

As The "U" rose up the rankings to #14 with a 15-3 record & on a 7 game winning streak. I must say... COLLEGE HOOPS RANKINGS ARE FULL OF SHYT.

How do you remain in the top 5 after getting masacred by 27? All you have to be is Duke. They dropped from #1 to #5. Smmfh

We're ranked behind 3 teams with 4 losses.
#11 Ohio St 15-4
#12 Louisville 16-4 (3 strait losses)
#13 Michigan St 17-4 (WE BEAT THEM???!!!) WTF

The final slap in the face in this weeks rankings:

Butler remains in the top 10 at #9 after losing to unranked LaSalle. THE "U" POUNDED LASALLE BY 17.

Bottom line, this is good motivation for Larranaga & his band of hardwood mercinaries. The lack of respect will inspire them to take care of biz @VaTech. Then, molest & mangle the over hyped preseason ACC favorites NCST on their home floor, on national television this saturday at 4pm. I can't wait to see this...

Just keep winning. THEY'LL FEEL US.

Collins to announce Feb. 4TH.

CoCane

I agree G&T. If we don't lose to Gulf Coast, we would've been ranked since the win over Michigan St & would be top 10 right now.

The hoops pollsters are biased though. They're giving Duke a pass because they're playing without Ryan Kelly. Those fukk ass DUKE SUCKERS didn't give us a pass losing to Gulf Coast without Durand Scott or losing to Zona & Indiana St without big Reggie...

5shipsago

Didn't see Alex Figeroa's name listed as a verbal on Canes Sport. Is he still with us?

Hassan

Fig is still with us, Rivals has him as an unrated recruit, they are idiots and can not get basic stuff straight like who we have committed.

I look for Him to have a Gabe Terry impact.

orange 'n green in the vein

Anybody know if he's related to Joel or are their last names just the same by a coincidence?

The Pimp's stable is playing like the 9th best team in the nation and I thought they'd end up at #13 but didn't give enough weight to anti-UM voting bias obviously.

Would be lovely if the NCAA would come out with it's "Sanctions" before Feb 1st, wouldn't it?

5shipsago

Finding it hard to see Collins being a Cane. With Edwards coming this weekend and the coaches really pushing hard to get this dude, something has to be up. The flip side of this, could it be we get both. I know they are trying to cover their butts, in case Collins, does head to Arky but do they take both, if they both want to come? As much as I whine about our DT situation, This Bryant kid thinks he's a freaking Prima Donna. If we get him good and if we don't, which it looks that way, we ain't sweaten your loss hoss!

5ships...from what I have seen, heard and read Miami would take them BOTH (Collins and Edwards). Will they both commit? I think so.

I think Dallas Crawford transfers soon if We get Collins & Edwards...

"This is what happens when you give people license to unleash their Inner Authoritarian, when you encourage them in thinking that the arbitrary enforcement of irrational codes of behavior designed to keep a labor force unpaid that is making you billions of dollars are somehow on an equal footing with actual criminal and civil law. This is what happens when you encourage bureaucrats to act like cops. This is what happens when you tell your people that a clipboard and a briefcase are the same as a badge and a gun. You get low comedy with human consequences."

Agree 100% he is larger than life. Too bad they cannot be all great and humble kids like Duke Johnson, Deon Bush and 95% of the Canes...

orange 'n green in the vein

Fisch was always featuring Crawford as a direct snap weapon, with whatever UM is going to run now he might need to find a real position instead of a gimmick to be used as or else get lost in the shuffle.

When you have a QB making a record book run like Morris was piling up last year when he was on, I always question why you're direct snapping the ball out of his hands, what's the alternative? Crawford simply running it isn't a good enough answer to me because a good defense is coming after him in the backfield with everything they can throw at him and Crawford faking a run to throw it is an even worse answer than him running it IMO. Keep the ball in Morris' hands and keep the defense afraid of the pass to the endzone from anywhere on the field instead.

Posted by: CoCane | January 28, 2013 at 03:05 PM

I don't think so. I'm pretty sure Crawford sees his value as a versatile player and a scout team All-American. If it wasn't for him, the defense would have been less ready for anyone like EJ Manuel, Logan Thomas, etc.

orange 'n green in the vein

Monty, you aren't sweating the Subban RFA negotiation are you? The Habs are a fringe playoff team right now, much better skill and speed but I think if they add PK back into the mix they can win their division. His chirpy-ness doesn't really bother me but then again, I'm probably as far removed from hockey team 'culture' as you can get so I want him to do a total 'Demolition Man'-era Rodman dyed hair heel turn just to get to see him get into a fight and lose his helmet to reveal this:

http://sportsrantz.com/rantz/files/2013/01/habs3x3.png

dyed into his skull for my own maximum entertainment value.

Canesfan1

I could be wrong a about transferring soon but I'm probably right about transferring eventually.

If the RB stable looks like this going into his redshirt junior year. He'll leave & would be a idiot not to.

Jr Duke Johnson
So Alex Collins
So Danny Dillard
Fr Augustus Edwards
Fr Sony Michel

He won't sniff the field with a stable like that...

Yes, that 'scout team all-american' sell job is always very popular draw with football players, they line up around the block to ink on the dotted line when you fish for them with that. Preparing the worse defense in school history for below average QB's who are most dangerous running the option is what every kid dreams of doing growing up playing football, why would he want anymore than that? You sure you didn't forget the " ;) " emoticon part of your post before hitting that button at the bottom of the page there k19?

Durand Scott won ACC Player of the Week. He's probably one of the most underrated/discussed guards in the game. Gotta wonder if he has any NBA chances. With DeQuan Jones making the Magic, I'd have to think yes. Agree?

They're taking Gus Edwards regardless of Collins committing and has nothing to do with them being worried about him.

He'll be used as an H-back/FB in Coley's system.
