Where have you been? he flipped weeks ago, I talked to him today. He will not RS and he had a feeling Coley would come to the U

CoCane

Fishbiatch thinks Collins to Arkansas? I'll have to see it to believe it...

Terrance Sullivan

Let's go Canes. Beat FSWHO tonight.

86- you and I had this discussion at WWOS... Can't say I'm disappointed.

Yes we did and I remember your assessment and opinion of him. In recruiting, like love and war, anything is possible, but him going to The U seems less likely as time goes by. But I agree with U, he seems like an FSU fit better than at UM. He is a talent no doubt but I'd rather let da Noles "manage" the baggage he brings.

Question;;I know six is at fsu this weekend.
But besides bluesteins endorsement I have only heard bama or fsu.Does anybody have a good take on this besides a gut feeling?

kenyon19ypr

Just saw a report that Keith Bryant is down to FSU AND SCar. I'm not shocked and like we've said, he's got an attitude.

Big game tonight!
Who's going?

The Dude

The kiddo advice is funny. I'm gonna be needing it soon. We have a baby cane on the way. Already commited to play QB at the U.

86Cane

For a limited time, Florida Residents can enjoy three days in any one of the four Theme Parks each day for just $119 plus tax. Add a fourth Theme park day for just $10 more! Don't miss out. Get your tickets today!

http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/florida-residents/3-day-ticket/

U do NOT need to be a AAA member but MUST be a FL resident with ID.

CGNC

BTW Co - good that you have them in athletic activities - makes everything better - especially for them.

CGNC

Co - funny thing - as they get older you will become smarter. It takes until they are about 20 though. Honestly, she was never home much the last year with 2 jobs and school - just long enough to make a mess LOL so when she moved out it was ok. She lives close by, has a really nice apartment has 2 jobs and probably starts classes again in May. I am definitely looking forward to this next chapter in my life.

Barry Jackson:
### Recruiting analyst Charles Fishbein said he believes Miami’s hiring of former FSU assistant James Coley as offensive coordinator has elevated UM from an underdog to the favorite to land Booker T. Washington linebacker Matthew Thomas and offensive tackle Denver Kirkland, rated among the top 10 nationally at their positions. “Thomas’ best relationship is with Coley,” Fishbein said. Fishbein favors Arkansas in the battle for elite running back Alex Collins, but UM believes it has a strong chance.

### The UM basketball team’s defense has improved markedly since Jim Larranaga replaced Frank Haith, and people around the program view Larranaga’s philosophy and teaching skills as a big reason, combined with the staff’s ability to develop players.

Haith often was willing to concede open three-pointers (Larranaga isn’t) and played far more zone than Larranaga. Comparing Haith’s final UM team (2010-11) to this UM team, the difference is dramatic: UM has risen from 163rd to 30th in scoring defense this season (nine points a game less), 83rd to 8th in field-goal percentage allowed this season (an impressive 36.9) and 226th to 47th in three-point percentage defense.

Hassan,

I'm still don't see Price-Martin on our commit list...

CoCane

Do you miss having your daughter around or are you glad you have your privacy back?

CoCane

Yeah. I'm the dumbest person on earth for now. I've learned not to lecture. I just advise & let them see for themselves. Mistakes are 1 of the most valuable things for teenagers. They have to learn from them. As Grandma Coke always says. "Bought sense is better than told sense". They're in Alabama with their mom this year. My daughter is an extremely gifted dancer. My son is a 5'7 combo guard for his middle school. He's averaging 13 pts, 3 assists. Hopefully he's the future point guard for the "U". He loves the canes like me & my whole family. He called me after we smashed Duke & was so excited. Everyone up in 'Bama was telling him Duke was going to put us in our place. He said his family hates on him up there because he's a canes fan. I was so proud listening to him talk shyt to his family in the background on the phone. I was like dam he talks shyt just like me. I FUKKIN LOVED IT! Lol!

CGNC

Posted by: CoCane | January 27, 2013 at 09:22 AM

LOL she is good - she has her own apartment now with some friends :-D. Coke Jr. and Cokette are at the age where they think they know everything? LOL

CoCane

They could go 6-7 in their last 13 ACCC games, lose in the 1st round of the ACC tourny & they're still a lock for the "big dance".

I think if the tourny started today, they would be a 3 seed. They would have to go undefeated in ACC play & win the ACC tourny to get a 1 seed. Realistically they're on track for a 2 or 3 seed.

CoCane

UMike,

Resume? Lol! Wins over Michigan St, UNC Charlotte, UMass, UCF, @UNC, Maryland, blew out LaSalle & Duke. #3 RPI & #1 ranked strength of schedule. The resume is already built. They're playing for seed now.

Montreal-Cane

Larranaga needs to use his connections up north to get a visit from 4* PG Rysheed Jordan, 5* PF Jermaine Lawrence & 5* SF Andrew Wiggins. This seasons success could help nab 1 or 2 of them...

Posted by: CoCane | January 27, 2013 at 09:07 AM

I hope so.

UMike

As a wiry, tow-headed 10-year-old, Kevin Olsen would occasionally toss a football back and forth with his big brother, Greg — now a prominent NFL tight end with the Carolina Panthers — during visits at University of Miami’s Greentree Practice Field.

When he was 12, Kevin, who by then had shot up to 5-3 as a quarterback for the Wayne, N.J., Police Athletic League, was with Greg in Miami Beach when he was selected late in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears in spring 2007.

“I’m really proud of him,” young Kevin said of Greg just days before that draft. “He never gives up, and every day he went out and tried his hardest. He can run. He can catch. He can do it all. Watching him get drafted is going to be really cool.”

Jorge Milian ‏
Resume' building for 'Canes: LaSalle, which lost to Miami by 17 on Jan. 2, has beaten two Top 25 in consecutive games.

Ohio_Cane

So you're telling me I'll be rooting for him once a year for the next 3-4 years around November 24th? LOL

UMike

IDK if anyone knows..or even cares lol..but Derrick Green commited to Michigan.

CoCane

Great! They're not so little any more. Coke Jr turned 15 3 days ago & Cokette turns 14 in less than 2 weeks. How's your daughter?

CGNC

Hi ya Co! How are the little cokesters?

CoCane

Larranaga needs to use his connections up north to get a visit from 4* PG Rysheed Jordan, 5* PF Jermaine Lawrence & 5* SF Andrew Wiggins. This seasons success could help nab 1 or 2 of them...

Now THAT is funny. The comedy stylings of CoCane.

I blocked the IP Addy of DR****. He has been on under lots of names as a troll.

Now, off to church and to pray for those poor lost souls who would rather spend time trolling another teams blog than doing something productive with their time and positive with their lives.

86Cane

Please do NOT feed the trolls.

When a strange blog name shows up outta da blue and makes negative comments just ignore. Thank U!

Collins wraps up his visit to Arkansas soon... decision should coming this week to the best of my knowledge. Looking forward to seeing an 'ol []__[] thrown up.

If U are a FL resident and like the whole Disney thing and are a AAA member they have a 3-day pass for $119 and a 4 day pass for $129 that is good now through June 30. Now that's a DEAL!

Malik Price-Martin is a great get for the basketball team. Checking some of his videos he seems to have a lot of versatility to his game which should fit into what "The Pimp" is doing. If anyone has any videos of him I would love some links. South Florida puts out some solid players every year in Basketball just take a look at some of the rosters for top 25 teams and with the way Larranga coaches we should have a strong core for a few years, Just need to ensure we get some difference makers to get deep into the Tourney.

Ohio_Cane

Stop believing trolls. Sandland is enrolled and EJ is still on the team.

Posting from my poker game so will be sparingly

86Cane

Tony...YUP, sure did, just once but it was lots of fun. Living in Central Florida we have been to Disney more than most but never to Animal Kingdom. Now we can cross it off our bucket list.

If U are a FL resident and like the whole Disney thing and are a AAA member they have a 3-day pass for $119 and a 4 day pass for $129 that is good now through June 30. Now that's a DEAL!

Only blackout dates are two weeks around Spring Break which U don't wanna be there then anyways (too crowded and long lines). January, February and March are the best times to go: smaller crowds, no lines and great weather.

The Dude

I can guess what Donald Duck did. Go Canes, beat FSU!

Did you and Mrs 86 go on the Dinosaur ride? My kids and I went on it 7 times on our trip.

The ninth-ranked University of Miami women’s tennis team secured its spot in the ITA National Team Indoors, with its 4-3 victory over No. 35 Arizona State Saturday afternoon at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

The Hurricanes’ newest member, Clementina Riobueno, battled back from a 4-1 third-set deficit to seal her team’s victory over a feisty Sun Devil squad. In the process, Riobueno and the Canes moved to 4-0 on the season and will head to Charlottesville, Va., Feb. 8-11 to participate in the ITA National Indoor Tournament.

“This was a big step for our program,” said UM head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews. “We’ll take this momentum moving forward.”

86Cane

Lol...did you get a picture?

This is 86Cane U are talking to, what do U think? OH YEAH!

86Cane

Wonder what team is hotter, UM women's golf or UM women's tennis?

The University of Miami women’s golf team opens its 2013 spring slate Monday at the inaugural Florida Challenge, a one-day, 36-hole shooting featuring five of Florida’s top programs.

Miami’s lone January event will be played at the par-72, 6,050-yard Quarry Course at Black Diamond Ranch in Lecanto, located about 80 miles northwest of Orlando.

The Canes, having recently finished a slew of individual offseason competitions, will be looking to earn state bragging rights as they compete against four in-state rivals – Florida, Florida State, UCF and host USF.

Tonycane

Lol...did you get a picture?

86Cane

Went to Animal Kingdom at Disney for the first time. Perfect day weather wise and had a great time with Mrs. 86. But U will NEVER guess what I got Donald Duck to do!

OGV,

I agree. It's obvious D'No will try to make the talent fit his system, instead of bending the system to fit the talent. A few of us see the writing on the wall but the rest are in denial. We can only hope that someone with serious coaching cred gets in his ear this off season & influences him to adjust his (gulp) "scheme".

In the midst of a cold case where the canes defense has been dead for 2 years. Last seen with prime suspect Mark D'Onofrio.

Hey I'm trying to lol. I'm tired of fans adding to the problem. The season isn't no where close to starting yet and fans are already complaining. We haven't had this much success in the past two or three weeks since we won our last ship and fans are still finding things to complain about.

Mcginns ale house

some more positive ogv..O_C, they're the worse ever, nothing good will be said about them now, or 50 years from now, when and if their records of ineptitude are broken by D'No's grandkid who is hired by Al's grandkid when they come from coaching football at Drexel and barely getting over .500 in two seasons out of five, nothing good will be said about the coaches either, unless they get fired for their production and someone who turns it around in a hurry is hired in their place or if by some blind squirrel finding an acorn every once in a while MIRACLE, Al backs into a national title like he did an ACC title game berth opportunity this year. 670 days of sour Kool-Ade chugging is not too appetizing for the palette, huh?..

Mcginns ale house

he is a real fan!!!

Mcginns ale house

Larranaga is such a pimp. Somebody needs to get that lifetime contract ready for him at years end in the UM athletic department. You know, if they can pull themselves out of the subterranean jack shack set up behind their offices with the always repeating highlights of Golden's ties on the sideline blowing in the wind projected in high def 3D 1080p to be bothered that is. I always knew deep down inside that D'No was a coward in addition to a totally clueless mutant who chicken dances in his defensive signals, now there's the proof of it reported. He should cuss out Barrow in the film room if he ever hits puberty one of these days, that would be worth the price of admission to watch him be totally a failure at Miami.

roachcane77

As much as I dislike OGV's negativity and insults to other bloggers here, there's no denying his loyalty as a Cane fan, and his dedication to learning and analyzing all he can about our team. I must say he often "brings it" with some very insightful stuff. Many of you may have missed this from the end of the last Blog, but THIS post by OGV, (in my opinion), is spot on.
What's this joker blabbing on about free passes?

Ale House, this is from an article about why the Lakers suck this year, tell me where D'No and Al's plushies are on this example?

There are two types of coaches …

1. A coach who looks at his players and says, "How can I put these guys in the best position for them to succeed?"

2. A coach who looks at his players and says, "How can I use these guys to make my system succeed?"

Now, think about the mind-set driving Coach No. 2: He's basically saying, I'm here only because of my system. I can't actually coach. If you give me the wrong players for my system, it doesn't matter — I will keep using the system anyway, because Plan B would be coming up with a more inventive way to coach these guys. And I can't do that. I'm not good enough. So if it's OK with you, I'd like to go down in flames with my system."

Coach #2 is responsible for any clouds over the football program Ale. Plus, a shoddy carpenter always blames his tools.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | January 25, 2013 at 09:15 PM

Not that it matters... but I'm WITH OGV on THIS one... I believe D'No is a Coach #2...
"Eventually," (maybe even this coming season), we'll see improvement... But, (also IMHO), this #2 type of coaching will never result in the "elite" defenses that we've seen at the U in the past. His "scheme/philosophy" is too much "waiting" and not enough "attacking" to get us into the top 5 or 10 in total D like we SHOULD be.

Nice article SOUP! (Including the title, of course.)

Funny stuff TonyCane.

Are Chad Thomas and Matthew Thomas related?

TonyCane

Meanwhile, in the Fortress of Swagitude, otherwise occasionally known as the Hecht Athletic Center a titanic battle was being waged. Al Golden fended off attack after attack, brandishing his tie like a bullwhip. His foe circled, face grim and eyes afire. The black pleather outfit of Golden’s opponent was a stark contrast to the gleaming, high tech confines of the athletic center, a blackness broken only by the crimson “A” emblazoned on his chest.

With another salvo General Saban was driven back towards an unusual device that stood in the back of the room. A gleaming chamber that resembled nothing more than an outsized crystal BCS Championship trophy.

Standing to the side, Lane Kiffin looked on in alarm. “Don’t go in there General, it’s a trap! It’s an NCAA Punishment Sphere. It turns programs like yours into programs like mine.”

Standing next to a hushed Donna Shalala, Emert added, “He is correct. It is quite…draining.”

General Saban growled at Shalala, “Cease this struggle…this futile effort to regain your status, or I will tear your school apart.” Al Golden looked to his president, who stifled a sob as she nodded.

Kiffin walked confidently towards General Saban. “Coach…I mean General, I believe the Shapiro testimony activates the mechanism.”

Saban sneered and beckoned Golden to enter the chamber. The Miami coach sagged. He was resigned to his fate, all hope now lost. Golden entered the crystal sphere, which quickly slid shut.

Moments later the Fortress of Swagitude was bathed in a green and orange glow as the device activated. Emert’s eyes widened with anticipation. Shalala sobbed, realizing that the revenue producing engine for the athletic department was being ground to powder.

Finally it was over. The chamber opened and Golden staggered out, robbed of skill and recruiting powers. Saban stood tall and beckoned him to kneel. The Miami coach complied.

“And now. Finally. Take my hand, and swear eternal loyalty to Saban.”

He held out his hand. Golden slowly reached out and took it.

And then he squeezed.

A resounding crunching filled the room as Saban gasped in horror. His powers undiminished, Golden effortlessly lifted the coach with one hand and held him up for all to see. Finally he gave Saban a sad shake of the head and tossed him out an open window. Onto the U-haul truck that was waiting to take him back to the SEC.

It was Kiffin who summized what had happened. “He switched it!”, he exclaimed. “The testimony was obtained incorrectly. The lights were on out here, and the Miami program was safe in there.”

Shalala turned to Emert and said, “You know something? You’re a real pain in the neck.” She hopped into the air with effortless strength and delivered a stunning drop kick that would have made Dwayne Johnson blush, sending Emert tumbling out the window and into another waiting vehicle, never to return to Coral Gables.

Thank you Wally, both for your setting the record straight and collaborating that the Ale House isn't just tilting at windmills that I've never even heard of in between adult beverages, and I'll add that I agree with your assessment that UM's view in the coastal line now has a chance to be altered.
