Brock Berlin gets a lot of credit for the comeback against UF in the OB, but UM's Co-MVP's that day was by far Ron Zook and his OC! It's not even close. If all they did in the 2nd half was run the ball and go 3 n out on every possession UF wins that game. They were up by like 24 I think at the half.

On a side not if Jimmy and his OC had Vinny hand off the ball in the Fiesta Bowl in the 2nd half I think we would have won that game ourselves.

Ball control is a funny thing from a fans perspective and from a coaches perspective on the field. The guy in the booth has to know when to run and when to throw to control the clock.

NC, those things are good, they aren't bitter and gluten is concrete for your joints at best, so I'm not understanding the snobbery about them you've encountered anymore than I am all the LOF coach D?No! selections? Well, actually that's a lie, those selections are being couched from a point of optimistic wishing for a desired result, which is borderline magical thinking.

I never met a beer I wouldn't drink if that's all on tap, but Pabst Blue Ribbon = swill IMO, even though I've had more than my fair share every once in a while to my regret the next day! Can you believe there's hipsters trying to drink it ironically and make it cool these days Wally?

He does not stutter like that in real life. Unless he drinks a lot of no-carb beer. (Which is delicious I might add.)

Yes, picking D?No! as your LOF coach pick is the dictionary definition of, 'picking on a goof.'

That's why he's THE ZOOKER!

(That was probably the best one in my mind too. He was the first, "win the press conference by dazzling them with a high speed stream of BS to diminishing returns over three seasons," coach at the Big 3, so that was always good for amusement for me also, but the fraternity fight story was just the coup de grace.)

Sarasota 'cane

My favorite Zook story is when he marched the team over to the frat house to pick a fight after a couple of his players got their azzes kicked at a party!

That school is like a real life Revenge of the Nerds!

Ah, well if the Zooker says you're going to be one of the 12 best teams in the nation this year, you're guaranteed to be at least 62nd overall.

Anybody who doesn't realize the Zooker depressed turnout for Brock's comeback in the Orange Bowl game doesn't understand the innate mentality of fans of reptiles. Muschump, however, has the most embarrassing BCS bowl result in turds history, that's good for at least 30% jump in fan attendance for them over the Zooker's start to his 8-5 parade turned out a decade ago.

I've heard Shorty's in Miami is the bomb for ribs but I've never been there.

Here in Atlanta there are several great BBQ joints. Fat Matt's and Fox Bros. are my to favorites.

Canezitis

Actually had better Mexican when I lived in NC, but Rubio's ain't bad, just a lil pricey for fast Mexican food. I'd say you trade good BBQ for really good sushi. Never had it growing up in citrus county, but my wife got me hooked on it. Btw, my canes gear arrived yesterday and my wife and 5 mo old girl will be sporting it with me on game days. She might have to step out when we play floriduh though. Things might get crazy win or lose;). Hope we can get our starters out by early 3rd against fau to let our youngins get some experience and keep us fresh for some gatah. 1 more week fellas!

When you move to Cali, you trade BBQ for Mexican Food. Burritos at 4 in the morning. I love In-N-Out and Rubio's.

And just say that when I was a senior in college, this song was always on a mix CD that I would play in my dorm room while I watched the sunrise out the window with girl I was 'dating but not calling each other our boy/girlfriend' that I used to let in to the bar I door-tended at.

Plus, for a blog about The Pimp at UM, it's pretty relevant.

CaneRock

There's a reason why most people are so thin out here: no good BBQ joints, at least that I've found.

Posted by: Canezitis | August 23, 2013 at 03:20 PM

Haha!
But that's true though, I've never heard about good BBQ joints out that way. But I will say, that the best burgers I ever had, were at the Florida City Flea Market as a kid.

Canezitis

In-N-Out is awesome, but I like 5 guys just much for different reasons. If you do get an in n out burger, ask for animal style. Btw, they will never move that far east. Staying where they are is how they keep it fresh. Since I moved to Cali, I have missed Checkers and good bbq. There's a reason why most people are so thin out here: no good BBQ joints, at least that I've found.

i was checking out some schedules and Louisville plays absolutely no one. They should be favorites in every game they play. Going in it looks like only Kentucky and Cincinnati can even line up.

If they run the table there will be a lot of teams on the outside looking in at the BCS. Strength of schedule probably not a big enough weighting to have them be bumped by a 1 loss team.

I ate armadillo when I was in the YMCA Indian Guides. It tasted like nasty, "game-y" chicken. I eat a lot of different foods but I struggle to eat stuff that I killed or didn't buy in a market. Not sure what it is about wild game but I just don't eat it.

In honor of Soup being in Bville and to counteract all the burger talk, there used to be a restaurant there that served armadillo. No more.

Researchers discovered something called Hanson disease (HD).

There was no association between HD and place of birth or having hunted, consumed, or had direct or indirect contact with deer, birds, or squirrels, however, analysis showed that residence in Mexico, hunting rabbits, cleaning rabbits, and armadillo exposure from hunting, cleaning, consuming them, or having direct armadillo contact were associated with HD.

In-N-Out is the best fast food chain in the world. I would be surprised if they expand that far east, its a family-owned business (no franchises) and they only have a few restaurants outside of CA (Vegas, maybe Phoenix, and 1 in Dallas IIRC). But if you get one, just be ready for a half-hour minimum wait when it first opens. It will be worth it, and ask me for their secret menu. :)

DAMN,NONE OF THEM WENT FOR THE KILL WITH 12-0?

UMike

Growing up on a military base with Marines for parents, University of Miami freshman linebacker Alex Figueroa learned early there is a right way and a wrong way to do things.

His father, Luis, taught him one of those life lessons by the way he showed Alex to tie his shoes.

“He would tie my shoe for me, show me show step by step. He wouldn’t use any of the around the rabbit ear moves. He would be straight up,” Figueroa said. “When it was my time to do it, if I had my hands wrong, didn’t do exactly what he said but still got it around, he would say that’s not how you do it, and I would have do it all over again.

“That’s just another example how precise my dad is, and how being brought up by him really instilled that in me.”

Precision and perfection are what the Hurricanes would eventually like to see from the 6-3, 235-pounder from Stafford, Va. But what they are getting out of him since his arrival in January might already be good enough to warrant a starting job a week from Friday night when UM opens the 2013 season against Florida Atlantic at Sun Life Stadium.

Canesfan_1

Mike but still note his last remark: "If the NCAA really practiced what it preaches about cooperation, it already would have happened."

He's actually agreeing that the ruling should have been already handed down, and the NCAA website says 8-12 weeks on average. We're at ten weeks, on the back end of almost THREE YEARS!!! The other examples of 4 months were exceptions, and those were much shorter investigations.

It's time for the morons in Indiana to get of their asses and rule no further penalties.

UMike

CR..No..he played in 6th and again in 7th, he broke is finger in 7th but kinda fell out of love with it. I love my kid, but he is a bit of a nerd lol. I was proud that he maid the team to begin with and was starting by 7th. Up until the summer before 6th grade he never played football and I worked with him all that Summer because he wanted to make the team. He loves band and made the All-County band last year. He also made All-County track team. So no football in HS, but band and track along with nerdy stuff like robotics. He wants to be an engineer and he has the brains for it. I got to admit, it took me a little time to realize my son wasn't going to be the popular cool athlete lol...but at this rate he will be the first person in my family to graduate from high school and he is involved and excels in a lot of stuff outside of sports..very proud of him.

My youngest son is about to turn 10, he has been playing tackle football since he was 6 and I'm always a coach on his team. He loves football. He is on the line right now and is the best tackler we have, he has a future in football for sure.

I was looking at Miami's page in CNN SI...and when you land on the page it shows (largely) the score from our last game. 52-45 against freaking Duke!!!!! Did we really score 52 and only win by 7...against Duke? WOW. I know it has been one offseason, but I do think our D will be greatly improved with all the new additions and the added size, strength and experience of the guys returning. Which is good, because we can win 9 to 11 games giving up 45 points to the Dukes of the world lol

UMike

By Dave George

Palm Beach Post Staff Writer

It’s not unheard of that the NCAA would make Miami or any school twist in the wind for what seems like forever while waiting on the results of a Committee on Infractions hearing.

Given the circumstances, however, with the Hurricanes’ season-opening game against Florida Atlantic just one week from Friday night, the delay seems unnecessarily tortuous and possibly deliberate.

Friday marks exactly 10 weeks since Miami President Donna Shalala and other school officials completed their hearing before the infractions committee in the Nevin Shapiro booster-gone-wild case.

Enough already with the manufactured drama.

If a bowl ban or worse is coming, then spill it. Knowing that the spread and the scope of this investigation have finally reached the limits of toxicity will come as a relief to coach Al Golden, no matter what the NCAA’s final sanctions letter has to say.

Look at the timing, however, and ask yourself if a bonus swipe at Miami is being worked into the schedule.

The NCAA could, say, hand down a 2013 postseason ban next week, mere days or even hours prior to the Hurricanes’ opening game against the Owls. Or, for greater impact, Miami could be forced to take its medicine on the week of the Sept. 7 Florida game.

While it’s true that these infrequent meetings with the Gators exist in a motivational universe of their own, the Hurricanes clearly don’t need that kind of emotional backwash.

Staying within the NCAA’s rules, of course, would have prevented all of these problems for the Hurricanes. Shapiro, a convicted Ponzi schemer, served up an unbelievably lurid menu of alleged major violations involving former Miami players and coaches.

February’s admission of “a very serious issue of improper conduct” on the part of NCAA investigators is what changed the game, however. Shalala, sensing a rare opportunity, fired back at the NCAA for being “unethical and unprofessional” and requested, without success, that the case be dropped altogether.

Given the secrecy of the process, every day that passes now without the announcement of sanctions could reasonably be perceived as a counterpunch delivered by the NCAA.

How long should it take for the Committee on Infractions to agree on a list of punishments and then get it all typed up and released in the appropriately cloudy legalese? The Associated Press has consistently listed six-to-eight weeks as the average wait time for a decision, and that range is also suggested on a University of Miami website devoted to the investigation.

The NCAA, on the other hand, writes on its own website that “it typically takes from eight to 12 weeks to write the report and announce penalties.” By that count, Miami is in the middle of the expected range at 10 weeks and counting.

Naturally, there’s always some leeway in the middle of the limbo. Priorities can be changed. Paperwork can be rushed or shuffled.

Ohio State went before the Committee of Infractions in August of 2011 for improper-benefits violations. The sanctions, including a one-year bowl ban, were released in December, more than four months later, but the Buckeyes were allowed to play in the Jan. 2 Gator Bowl all the same. In this case, the postseason ban was applied to 2012, when a 12-0 Ohio State team was frozen out of the national title chase.

North Carolina also waited more than four months for sanctions in 2012, but with the benefit of getting smacked after national signing day for high school recruits had already passed. Oregon, on the other hand, received its sanctions this summer after a wait of nine-plus weeks, and a full two months prior to the start of football season.

That’s what Miami wants, a break from this dirty business that is quick and clean. If the NCAA really practiced what it preaches about cooperation, it already would have happened.

UMike

I was reading an article last night, I think Matt Porter posted the link, and the article was wondering if the NCAA was purposly withholding their announcement as a "counter punch" to Donna calling them out.

BUT, what I found more interesting in this article is that the 6-8 week period is basically a made up time frame by the media. The NCAA's website actually says 10-12 weeks, but other schools have waited up to 4 months. So there is a good chance we may night hear until the middle of the season.

Walter Tucker is an outstanding athlete with great speed. I don't know how he was at camp as a LB but with his speed and strenght we might see him at more than 2 positions before he is a senior...Our safety position is my main concern with the 2013 Canes and i was wondering if Tucker could play this posistion as well as the LB and FB Positions.
Well the depth at RB-FB is better now than at the safety position even with Dillard gone...
