Behind an intense pressure defense, the 2013 USA U19 Women's U19 World Championship Team (3-0) sprinted to a 28-7 lead en route to a 69-49 defeat of Canada (1-2) to capture the 2013 Lanzarote International Invitational championship on Sunday morning at the Teguise Arena in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Australia (2-1) defeated host Spain (0-3) 75-58 and finished second in the round-robin tournament as Canada nabbed third place.

Breanna Stewart (Connecticut / North Syracuse, N.Y.) led the way with 11 points, while Morgan Tuck (Connecticut / Bolingbrook, Ill.) scored 10 and Brianna Turner (Manvel H.S. / Pearland, Texas) also had 10 points to go with seven rebounds.

“The start of the game, our first quarter was just phenomenal, especially after that short (13-hour) turnaround," said USA U19 and University of Miami head coach Katie Meier. "It really showed maturity in our starters. But, our pressure wasn't consistent throughout the game. It came and went. We kind of pressured in spurts. We weren't as sharp mentally as we needed to be, but I was really happy to see the veterans set the tone early in this game."

Seeing as they were allegedly with Hernandez the night he shot two people in Gainesville it's not really a stretch. UF's "Greatest Class of All Time" has as many felons as Miami's had 1st round draft picks!

VA Cane

I will say it plainly I despise Urban Greasy Myer; he is a piece of shit. He may win, but at a cost. Screw Hernandez,and those idiot Ponceys...Hernandez will get it in THE END in prison, he will find out about tough and bad. I hope both of the Pounceys blow a knee out, and end up on skid row. They are complete jerks. The whole UF program is BS. Muschamp has a fat gut and a big mouth....no better than greasy. I hate OSU, Myer Florida....as much as I respect Tebow as a person, I do not see how he can be so blind to Greasy Myer....

U Mike your posts are great I really get a lot from them. Keep up the good work.

Its rained so much here in VA I think I am in Miami. I been sweating my guys, we are ready, and man are we loaded this year. These kids have worked so hard all summer on fundamentals....that's where I destroy other teams. They run triple reverse bubble screen don't hit don't get dirty Urban Myer garbage crap....we are sweating out up downs, bear crawls, practicing handoffs, sled work, reach blocks, using our hands, form tackling and blocking, getting in shape in shorts and shirts....etc. I KNOW and my kids KNOW they are talented but all the talent in the world cannot beat basic football and talent!!! One of our rivals came out to see us, said he was ready for us this year. I told him that was great. My main assistant was so pissed he wants to run the score up 100-0. I told him no way do I ever do that, cause that is not fair to those kids. I said we just dominate the lines of scrimmage and do the basics...win by knowing the game, not having an attitude.

My heart goes out to Trayvon Martins family. His parents were dignified and holy in their grief. I also think the political figures who stuck their mouths and noses in it cost the victims dearly; I feel the jury wanted to show the political talking heads they were not in charge...sad for the child and parents whom I feel for deeply.

;;;;;;;;;;

Yes, we'll that's just it. They've been implicated of at least being at the scene of attempted murder in Gainesville, by AHernandez. Their school is a laughingstock, and they're pro football players making millions, and they do something this stoooopid??? They must share one small brain between the both of them. My guess is that in ten years they'll be broke and unemployed.

Sarasota 'cane

If UF is found to have paid off the victims in the alleged Hernandez/Pouncey Gainesville shooting does anyone think that would be considered an NCAA violation?

Thanks so much for the post.Really looking forward to read more. Keep writing.

VA Cane

I am not really sold on a cat named Johnny QB. Yes he had a nice year last year, played very well against Bama. Since then, his attitude is well disinterested in football, crying about pub, whining about having to take online classes, way too many other interests....not sold on the guy. Lets see him repeat. Personally, I think our boy SM is going to have a very good season. Maybe old Johnny football had too many cold ones and thought he could not compete with Morris.

I despise Myer so much; joke as a leader and person. He faked all that hear shit, hell he doesn't care about his kids what a BShitter. What lame answers to his days at UF. Same with Fatazz Muschump. I want to lay some wood to those pu**ies from UF....maybe they could have some uni pants that look like jorts....what a bunch of idiots. Hell we get people from all over at VT and you would not believe some of those idiots either...well maybe you would!!!!

VA Cane

heart shit; hell what heart....Lombardi had heart, Schnell, JJ had heart....Urban is no leader and has not heart. Mole faced cry baby don't care jerk. Damn right he had to turn ND down......his kind of players don't have the brains to stay out of trouble how would they get in? Exceptions? Hey at least they have some standards...rather see them do well than UF or OSU. Hope Greasy Mole Face has some heart trouble the piece of shit!!!!!!

Think the bottom will fall out this year for Johny Football and A&M. Think Morris will be a better pro QB either way.

Not a Tebow fan, though not a religious person, I respect he stood by his own values. How much would his persona become if he steps in a TE for NE and does well in Hernandez's absence. media will have a feiled day.

Lisening to a rap song on the radio with my daughter. "All I do is win" I think it was called, anyways Snoop Dog references "like the The U in the 80s"

Wut up CaneSpace Fam....can't wait to see you guys for the FAU game before I head to Ft. Hood...I keep hearing back back home in Miami, dnt be surprised if we get Lane and Dixon along with JoJo Robinson and Berrios..I heard that Treon Harris spot was guaranteed, but with him taking that FSU offer, that opened the door for us to take both Berrios n Robinson....also family are pushing Lane to stay home which he wants to do, but u knw how the SEC does...n he might be cool with Wilson, he grew up with Tim Irvin n Jaquan Johnson n played pop warner with them, n they all want to play together in college..most likely the U...

SOUP

Dee..that is some GOOD news. Is it reliable or rumor?

DeeCane

SOUP...very reliable... Before I joined the army, I lived right in the middle of that area...I knw a few people from Liberty City to Homestead FL...people talk in the Hood that are football fanatics, and watching some of these kids grow up....but that's what I knw so far, I'm 1000% sure of the Lane,Irvin, and Jaquan Johnson situation...the other stuff is accurate for now, but its a long ways till signing day

SOUP

Dee...very cool. As soon as the new 2013 shirts are in I will let U know on here.

Brevardcane

That is some very good news.. If all of them signed it almost wouldn't be fair

Ok..SOUP..thanks

DeeCane

And you knw kids change their minds..but as of now, Lane Irvin, and Johnson want to play together

Yeah, I remember watching Lane,Irvin, and Johnson play in the Pop Warner C'Ships a few years ago. They had those Carolina boys so outmatched, it should've been ILLEGAL! Crazy to think that Lane was a TE on that team LMAO!

### While the NCAA case nears a conclusion, UM has yet another off-field issue to deal with. Jimmy Goins -- who purchased human growth hormone and other drugs from Anthony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic, according to a Miami New Times report in January -- is suing UM for firing him as the baseball team’s strength and conditioning coach, asserting the university breached his contract by dismissing him “without following rules laid out in the UM employee handbook.”

UM filed a motion to dismiss the case on Friday, with UM attorney Eric Isicoff writing in the motion that Goins “does not point to a specific provision” in the UM handbook that UM “has allegedly breached.”

Goins, who was fired in March after more than nine years on the job, also is suing Biogenesis, New Times, The Miami Herald and The New York Times.

Goins’ attorney said in the suit that he went to Biogenesis with the belief the clinic “was properly licensed and that Bosch was a medical doctor – neither of which was true.”

Goins’ attorney said blood work determined Goins needed testosterone, and his Biogenesis treatment included HGH. He alleged the medical records published by New Times – and media reports in the other publications – led to his termination from UM.

### One tweak in UM’s offense from Jedd Fisch to James Coley: Expect, on occasion, more of a power running element, with guards pulling and extra tight ends. Al Golden is so appreciative of Coley using the terminology already in place with Fisch, so the players wouldn’t have to learn an entirely new system.... Please check the last post for more Hurricanes tidbits from Saturday.

Tito Doin Work...

Since it's the off-season, now would be a good time to debut a project I've been working on for a while. Here are some comparisons between Miami skill-position recruits and current NFL players based on skillset and physical gifts. This doesn't mean the recruits will turn out as good as these guys, but it is just a comparison of styles.

DT:

Travonte Valentine: Marcel Dareus

I like this comparison because both of these guys displays their atheltic ability as DT’s. The first thing that jumps at you when you see Valentine is his size. A legit 6’4 300 pounds with tremendous strength. Valentine also displays good technique and combines it with his strength is nearly unstoppable. Valentine like Dareus, could use more time on the field but once his conditioning can improve, this kid is going to be an absolute nightmare for any offensive linemen.

Valentine:6'4 310
Dareus: 6'4 280

Valentine Highlights:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STYcZzmsMGA
(Skip the two minute atrocity at the beginning of the video)
Dareus Highlights:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OCQdUGsP28

Dalvon Stuckey: Ryan Pickett

These guys are basic “Space Eaters”. All they do is draw double teams and take up large gaps directly in the hole and swallow running backs. When looking at Stuckey’s tape you notice he is a pure run stuffer, and not much of a pass rusher. Similar to Pickett, Stuckey isn’t much of a pass rusher due to only having a Bull-Rush technique.

Stuckey: 6'2 310

Pickett: 6'2 300

Stuckey Highlight:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axZFRKzj-E8


Courtel Jenkins: Brandon Mebane

After watching this guy’s tape I’m really beginning to believe that he can really contribute early here. Jenkins is a monster physically and is always involved in the runs plays up the middle. He finds a way by out working his blocker. He stands around 6-2 310, but uses that weight to stuff the run at every opportunity. Like Mebane, Jenkins relies mostly on his strength. Mebane was going to be the starter for the Seahawks DT spot this year until he hurt his calf.

Jenkins: 6'1 310

Mebane: 6'2 308

Jenkins Highlights:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHRNPyTEpbk

Khairi Clark: Jurell Casey

Size and aggresive play is what makes me believe these two are similar. They both play with a very high motor and make their names known in the opposing team’s backfield. However, like most would say ,Clark does have a lot of unnecessary weight that needs to be cut and Casey is using his cut weight to be more aggressive and attacking.

Clark:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Sv0AWvZ2_U

Casey:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDFNtXzoGAY

Since it's the off-season, now would be a good time to debut a project I've been working on for a while. Here are some comparisons between Miami skill-position recruits and current NFL players based on skillset and physical gifts. This doesn't mean the recruits will turn out as good as these guys, but it is just a comparison of styles.

Today’s comparisons are for the receivers

Ermon Lane: Julio Jones

Lane and Jones have the rare ability to go up and get those fifty-fifty balls almost effortlessly. They both are good route runners with strong hands. Although Lane and Jones may not be the ones to catch a screen pass and take it down the field for 80, they can get deep.

Lane: 6’3 195
Jones: 6’4 215


Travis Rudolph: Reggie Wayne

Wayne has polished catching skills, as does Rudolph, and he can make difficult catches look easy. They both are very smooth and always in control. Rudolph brings the added threat of punt returning, as he is a threat to score with the ball in his hands.

Rudolph:6’0 189
Wayne: 6’ 198

Johnnie Dixon: Antonio Brown

Both guys are good route runners with big-play ability, but Dixon may even be more versatile with his ability to line up outside.

Dixon: 5’11 190
Brown: 5’10 175


Braxton Berrios- Wes Welker

This is an easy comparison, but it is the right one IMO. Everything about Berrios's game resembles Welker but with a little more explosiveness. Berrios ran a 4.48 at the same camp where Dixon and Lane ran 4.5+, and his quickness (like Welker's) makes him impossible to cover. Berrios showed at the Miami camp that he can adjust to bad passes and he also has surprising jumping ability, similar to Santana Moss.

Berrios: 5’10 175
Welker:5’9 185


Darrell Langham- Tommy Streeter

Langham has good speed and amazing size that he uses to catch the jump balls and deep balls. Like Streeter, his route running is very good for a big man and he catches the ball away from his body. One area I would really like to see Langham improve is drops; scouts have reported he seems to be able to catch the hard passes but drops the easier ones. If he want to live up to this comparison, he needs to be more consistent.


Langham 6’3 180

Streeter: 6’4 190

Ufomba *The African Nightmare* Kamalu update


-He's just waiting UM to accept him.

-He's fully cleared and waiting for his final grades and see if UM accepts him.

-He was wavering, but now he is 100% CANE!

-He's lifting 3-4 hours a day, running 1 1/2 hours a day.

-He talks to UM staff a lot and he's currently in GA.

UMike

Seems there wwre rumors Kamalu might switch to Auburn

LB

He's a defensive tackle and Miami wants him. Even an inch of talent and heart and he's starting for a 5-time national champion on the way back to top 15 prominence. Oh, and a top 40 school.

No matter how bad D'Onofrio and the d-line have been, you'd have to be mad not to jump at that chance.

Help!!!!!!!

Looks like HOUSTON will be in the HOUSE for the Beat down of FU. I am trying to buy tickets. I know the "public" individual tkts don't go on sale for a couple of weeks. What is the best way to get good seats now? Join the Hurricane club, purchase season tickets (this will probably be my only game), etc? I have never been to a game at Sun Life or whatever its called now, where are good seats.

Any advice would help. Also plan on tailgating, Will bring liquor, just need an invite!

LB

Soupers (86Cane) would know best.

UMike

Houston..What I did was buy the season tickets for $140, and then I sell the other tickets. That is the only way to get tickets at the moment. Stub Hub also has single game tickets for sale.

Houston..I will be participating in the tailgating also..before or on game day people will post on here what sections their in etc so we can all hook up

Just looked at our 2010 recruiting class hauled in by yours truly Randall Lennard Shannon. We wonder why we have had set backs as the crew below is who we expect to lead our team.

Ohio_Cane

Oh, "JAG" = "Just Another Guy"

SOUP

Houston...there are three ways to get tickets:

1. Buy season tickets, use the UF ticket and sell the rest (like UMike).

2. Buy a Mini-Season ticket plan for three games including the UF game and sell the other 2 (cheaper option).

3. Join the Hurricane Club for as low as $50 and then have access to buy UF tickets on-line por by phone on 7/22 before they go on sale to season tickets holders on 7/29 and the general public on 8/5.

SOUP

Of course the fourth way is to buy them on the secondary market like Stub Hub for much MORE $$$ later on.

UMike

The cheapest I saw on Stub Hun was $94 for the FU game..I think its people selling their season tickets. The cheapest single game ticket (when available thru UM) is $76 I believe

Brevardcane

What about for away games like USF? That game will be my best chance to attend.

Bring on the defensive tackles and linebackers.

To buy away games now from UM U must be a Hurricane Club member or season ticket holder. However, they will go on sale to the general public on 8/5.

You can also buy them from the host school later on for less $$$ on but will not be in the UM visiting section of the stadium.

JAG: 14/45 (31.11%)

Solid Contributor: 12/45 (26.67%)

Golden gets a lot out of who he gets. He knows who fits his style. As long as the players act like human beings, they'll be on the roster.

Taking into account injuries, academics, & suspensions (Grooms, AJL, Witt, Finnie, E. Johnson): the "Gone" factor goes down a lot and improves the numbers even more.

Long story short, half of the Golden recruits who show up and follow the rules contribute. That number should increase this year (D. Crawford, Dillard, Hamilton, Coley, Burns, Dobard/Sandland, Figeroua).

LB

Making an educated guess, here's who I think will contribute:

Coley, Burns, Dobard/Sandland, Grace, Figeroua, Odogwu, Elder

Redshirt: Lewis, Carter, Olsen, Gall

The others I'm clueless. I'm especially curious of what they'll do with Augustus Edwards.

LB....good stuff. Love it!

Whoops, I forgot about O'Donnell. Add in another one who WILL contribute.

Depends on what Danny Dillard does this year. Those two are SOMEWHAT similar in size/style I think?

Miami will need a big back to compliment Duke and Dallas and Clements return is still questionable I think?

LB

"Miami will need a big back to compliment Duke and Dallas and Clements return is still questionable I think?"

Yup. Maybe they'll upgrade Hagens? :)

LB

Talk about contributing... our offensive line is as deep as Alabama's. No joke.

Seniors
Linder, Susan's man, Wheeler

Juniors
McDermott, Bunche, Feliciano

Sophomores
Flowers, Wells

Redshirt-Freshmen
Gadbois, Isidora

Freshmen
Gall (going to be a beast), Odogwu, Knighton

2014 (solid/shut down recruiting)
McDermott, Darling, Gibbons, Linder

These guys are deep, stacked, and scattered by class. Tell me that's not as good as Alabama. Any one of them could start on any ACC team, and we've got them all.

Sick. Unfair. I love it.

If we get our defense straightened out like this, we don't have to worry about the ACC anymore.

LB

By the way:

Don't be shocked if Burns & Coley make the same sort of impact that Duke did last year.

That is a BOLD statement.

I am not sure that anyone could make the impact that Duke made last year.

Just think if we have one, just ONE player on defense that can make the type of impact that Duke made on the offense last year then it could be party time in Coral Gables!

I could go for a couple pick sixes or a few blocked punts for TDs while we are at it. But hey, that's just me.

Thanks all for the suggestions. Just spoke to tkt office and they are out of the package tkts for the UF game. So looks like I will become a Hurricane club memeber and sit by the phone and computer on July 22 at 7:00 am and hitting the purchase button and hopefully I am able to get the lower level tkts.

Unless someone has a better suggestion? Really want to spend no more than $100 per tkt, will need 3.

Again thanks all, and to MGMT for having this outlet!

Last I read, it doesn't look good for Eduardo coming back from his neck injury.

Mo Hagens will be the 1 back in heavy goal line sets as of right now.

HOUSTON, DID U CHECK STUBHUB?

Ohio_Cane

Why this negativity? I didn't like Shannon as HC either, but why flog a dead (gone) horse? If Al lives up to expectations, then we'll all be happy, if not, does it matter what Shannon did? It's Al's 3rd year already anyways.

Let's move on.

When I read it, I took at as a comparison to how it is now, not as negativity.

I think it's a legitimate point to look at when understanding recruiting, developing players, etc.

When comparing, U learn that no matter what some kids just won't learn/improve, some will learn/improve a decent amount, some will learn/improve a ton.

It takes taking the right guys and evaluating them live (camps), not just picking every player out of the Rivals 150 and offering.

If either of those 2 comes even CLOSE to what Duke did, we're gonna be a nightmare for every single team we play.

I'd disagree they'll have THAT much impact, but I do agree with LB that they'll both contribute a lot this year.

Former pro scout and http://NFL.com writer Bucky Brooks: "Stephen Morris might be the most talented quarterback in college football"

Ohio_Cane

^^^^

3) Stephen Morris might be the most talented quarterback in college football. I say that even while fully aware of the gifted passers across the college football landscape. The Miami signal-caller's natural talents made him stand out above the rest of his peers at the throwing exhibition at the Manning Passing Academy. Morris spins the ball with exceptional velocity and zip while showing a deft touch on intermediate and deep passes. Most impressively, he is deadly accurate, capable of making pinpoint throws to every area of the field. This was evident not only when Morris won the air-it-out competition by hitting a variety of moving targets, but also when he connected with receivers on a number of intermediate throws, particularly on deep comebacks and digs.

After cross-referencing the notes from my evaluation of Morris' game tape with my observations of his performance at the Manning Passing Academy, I believe he could rate as one of the top pure passers in college football. He is an outstanding rhythm passer who displays terrific anticipation, awareness and timing in the pocket. Although he only has one year of starting experience at Miami, Morris' remarkable physical tools and superb game-management skills could garner him high rankings on quarterback lists around the NFL.
