The Dude

Man, all this offense on officials. Where's the safeties? Where's the defense.

Saliva Breath

The way MOST of the really influential people at and around the UM program see it, 2014 is really year ONE for Golden and crew. So no changes will occur until at least the end of 2015 (DC) and prolly not until 2017 (HC).

But by then UM will have recruited MUCH better and should be winning a LOT more including beating FSU and winning the ACC and playing in BCS bowl games. So nobody is going anywhere anytime soon.

So strap it up tight and hunker down Canes fans!

Al golden staying after the Yahoo story dropped saved another decade of rebuild time. Dont believe it? Then u continue to underestimate the complete and utter clusterfark of a mess he inherited.

2014 as year one? Not surprised comsidering that Golden has rewarded players who shouldnt even be on the field lots of playing time for staying the course. Shannons kids are gone after this bowl game....the ones that stayed deserved their chance to play.

The ACC reportedly f'ed us over with the Chick Fil A bowl. Now we play Louisville. And we get to open ACC play with Louisville next year. Makes me almost miss the bad old days of bowl bans. As for basketball, I assume that I made the right choice in missing that game? Sad part is this is Larrinaga's third year and this is his team.

Are u serious in ur comment about Coach L?

Do you follow this team?

Panamacitycane

Im thinking of getting tickets and driving down from Tally to Orlando. Will there be a post about tail gaiting plans? I've never met any of you, would of been nice at the FSU game but my friends decided to take their sweet time getting to TALLY and we got to our tail gate late.

Panamacitycane

Question for u guys lets say teddy had come to the u would we have finished better than 9-3

Posted by: jsy | December 08, 2013 at 10:54 PM

If defense is the same, probably not, I think Stephen did all he could, injuries are hard to overcome, I think the offense was great. Defense lost two games. (FSU was a mix of both)

WWIN

We will beat Lil Miami by double digits!!!

Vault it!

Terrance Sullivan

No offense but playing in a third tier bowl aint the big time. i mean I would of felt better if we would have least landed in a New Years Eve bowl or later date but playing on December 28th aint returning to the big time Its well at least we are bowling again and that in itself is something to appreciate and enjoy. Go Canes!

DT Travonte Valentine says Canes will visit his home tomorrow.

Montreal-Cane

New from Peter Ariz...

Before I get into each prospect specifically, Miami felt good about the outcome of this weekend. There are some fans who might be disappointed about the fact that there is no commit to show for the last three days, but besides Dixon previously planning to announce tonight, there was not expected to be any commitments. Results are not always immediate when it comes to recruiting.

Dalvin Cook
The lead-up to Cook’s official visit was highly anticipated and I’m told that he was “all smiles” this weekend. The past couple of years, there have been some top flight recruits who have visited Miami out of a courtesy to the staff, but that is not the case with Cook because he is sincerely considering the Canes. After this last week where both Coley and Golden gave in-homes to him and he visited, Miami feels like they have given him a lot to think about and this will be a tough decision for him. As his mother told me last week, Miami getting the last shot at him does give them an advantage. Other than that, his camp is staying quiet. He will announce next weekend so I expect to hear more throughout the week.

Johnnie Dixon
This is your classic case of nobody really knowing where a kid is going until he announces himself. There have been people saying Alabama, Miami, and Ohio State with him the last couple weeks and him pushing his decision back adds another layer into the scenario. Miami felt good leading up to this visit, but him pushing back would lead you to believe that his pick was not going to be Miami. Another source told me that Dixon not announcing tonight was a very good sign for the Canes. There has also been more talk about Ohio State than Alabama recently. Like with Cook, we will continue to hear more throughout this week. I don’t think Dixon will be doing much talking though, because his team plays in the state final this weekend.

Travis Rudolph
Rudolph’s visit went unreported until this morning, which is interesting for a local, high profile prospect. Miami has kept tabs on him for months and it seems like the coaches are going to make one final push to see how interested he is. Not only does his father want him at Miami, but his mother wants him here as well. James Coley in-homed with him after the visit. It would be a tough pull, but this weekend basically kept Miami in the conversation for him.

**I posted earlier this week that one of Ermon Lane’s coaches told me he believed Lane would decommit from Florida in January and that whoever landed Dalvin Cook would also have a great shot at Lane. Another person told me the same thing again today and Miami is aware that the two would love to play with each other. Lane is not an early enrollee, so this will give him time for Miami coaches to continue to recruit him over the next two months.

**Keep an eye on Brandon Powell. Although he’s solid right now, I don’t know how he would react if Cook committed. Powell has told me in the past that he is open to playing corner at Miami (which is probably his big money position), but there is also some talk that he prefers playing on the offensive side of the ball. He has visited both West Virginia and Tennessee recently.

Question, even tho it doesn't matter?

If we were to play Duke again this year, who would win?????

I know people here do NOT want to hear this but I will repeat what Go Canes said the other day here on the blog: The way MOST of the really influential people at and around the UM program see it, 2014 is really year ONE for Golden and crew.

So in reality NOBODY is going anywhere anytime soon.

I tried to tell people this yesterday! Lol

So put it this way, these past 3 seasons NEVER HAPPENED!!!

Montreal-Cane

Miami has been allotted 13,500 tickets for the Russell.

Tickets are $77 and $82 and can be purchased through the UM Ticket Office online at CanesTix.com, in person at the BankUnited Center (Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5 p.m.) or by phone at 1-800-GO-CANES.

Honestly I think we will beat Louisville in a shootout say 45-38.

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | December 08, 2013 at 10:34 PM

Yeah but is that before or after the twerking?

Posted by: SOUP | December 08, 2013 at 10:37 PM
LOL after Soup! U got me in tears from laughter. Love U man.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup I wonder how many tickets UM got from the Russell Athletic Bowl 7500, 10,000, or 12,500. That is the question because otherwise why would they have the limited $82 dollar tickets. Hmmmm

WHOA NELLY, HURRICANE CLUB TICKETS:

All ticket purchases are final. If we are unable to accomodate tickets at the $82 price level, you will be allocated tickets in the $77 price level.

Please note, the University of Miami was given a very limited number of tickets at the $82 price level.

jcane

One of the knocks on Teddy B re: the NFL potential is that there isn't much to him (ie needs to bulk up). The obvious key would be to knock him around a bit/get in his head. I just have a hard time seeing this particular group being able to do this.

orange 'n green in the vein

303 Terrence, I've got a two hour drive one way on game day but I might get stupid and go in for a hotel room and go to the swamp that Walt drained to build a house for his mouse Friday and then the bowl game the next evening, maybe. Or I might save that money and go down to UM for a basketball game and New Year's day instead, it's up in the air right now.

Q, where are you getting this insane idea that Bridgewater and Louisville regressed this year? They have a better record and he had a better season statistically, that's the exact opposite of regression.

Terrance Sullivan

JW UM officials wont say that since Swofford stood with them against the NCAA.

SOUP

Swofford did not lobby AGAINST UM he lobbied FOR Duke. How many times is Duke going to have a season where they beat BOTH VT and UM? They deserve it.

My God, let it go people!

j.w.

So, UM officials claim that the Swofford lobbying against UM report isn't true. But the people who reported it include a UM beat reporter, Duke's beat reporter, nd aa few bloggers who couldn't care less about the game. Something happened, can't wait to hear the final report.

laquinton

Miami wins this game IF they keep constant pressure on TEDDY B, I know I know. We need a serious effort by the defensive lineman. Haven't won a game since playing Nevada in 06 ?? Right ? Wow that's crazy. I'm sure Miami will win big . Louisville regressed greatly this year and hopefully Mark D and Co don't let Teddy have all day or else it will look like Washington vs Baylor 2011.. over 700 of total offense for baylor.

KYcane

If they play on the 28th in Orlando, that is my wife's birthday and I know she would not let me talk her into going to the game as a gift……I will be at a crossroads people.

Posted by: raizecane | December 08, 2013 at 05:35 PM

What better place to celebrate a birthday than with a tailgate full of CANES fans?

SOUP

OK, so either RaizeCane or NativeCane or BOTH MUST attend the bowl game. The entire tailgate is at serious risk if both of U no-show!

Terrance Sullivan

There are some 35 dollar tickets in section 303 Soup. OGV I am in section 302 the 20 dollar tickets. Where are U man.

Of course, if you get the first row behind the Louisville bench I might be interested in trading yours with mine and paying you the difference just to heckle the AAC DL coach.

Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | December 08, 2013 at 09:21 PM

DONE!

Ohio_Cane

Monty, Dixon is considered by some to be a "Bama lean". So it's huge for Miami that he's pushing it back

SOUP

From what I am told D'Onofrio is NOT going anywhere and I do not see anything that would change that unless he does not get it done by the end of 2015 and then Al has to abandon HIS defense and hire someone to run something different.

I know people here may NOT want to hear this but I will repeat what Go Canes said the other day here on the blog: The way MOST of the really influential people at and around the UM program see it, 2014 is really year ONE for Golden and crew.

Did you feel the same way when UM got hosed by the Gator Bowl taking Bowden to face WVU in his final game when UM earned it on the field as well? Because Swafford talked out of both sides of his mouth after that one about how selections should go in the fallout back then.

SOUP

I am more looking forward to tailgating with my CaneSpace Family. I just want our Canes to win the game strickly for to end the bowl game and 10 win drought.

There IT is right there.

Soup...Is Golden keeping his D'Onafrio in place as of today? If so, if D'Onafrio gets his a$$ handed to him in the bowl game will letting D'Onafrio go be re-considered?

$20 ACC side tickets were available today this morning and were all gone by this afternoon, better hurry before you're stuck paying $80 to watch this shootout that most likely isn't going to end well for Hurricane fans.

Of course, if you get the first row behind the Louisville bench I might be interested in trading yours with mine and paying you the difference just to heckle the AAC DL coach . . .

SOUP

Then will send the list to Al Golden and asking Blake James to pay the new DC between 750K and 1M.

Posted by: Montreal-Cane | December 08, 2013 at 05:51 PM

I've already done the research and could give you a list of 5-10 names tomorrow. But it ain't gonna happen so just let it go for now.

RARA

I have no problem with the ACC commish lobbying for Duke over us to get a better bowl game. They beat us head to head and they played in the ACC championship game. They got their a$$es handed to them, but so did we when we played FSU (in close to the same fashion). While I understand that bowl games have a lot to do with TV viewership and popularity, and the Chick Fil A Bowl probably strongly prefered us over Duke, but Duke earned the better bowl on the field. If we take care of business we take the ACC commich out of the equation and get the better bowl with the better compensation. And taking emotion out of it, look at it from the commish's perspective. He represents the the entire ACC, not just the popular teams in the conference. And the fact of the matter is the Chick Fil A commitee could have still overruled his wishes, but didn't. Lesson learned. Take care of business and this won't happen. D'NO and Golden...you have 3 weeks to prepare for this team. Let's see what you can do on defense.

SOUP

Soup did U get those tickets for the Russell Athletic Bowl.

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | December 08, 2013 at 05:18 PM

Negative. But I will, and soon.

Terrance Sullivan

KYCane yes sir I will be staying at the Doubletree Orlando Airport on Hazeltine Road. I owe U dinner anyway lol. NativeCane I would love to hang with ya bruh and yall decide to come to the game that would be sweet, but honestly if I was U Nashville bound would be where I would be headed. KYCane, Soup, and others maybe we can link up Friday Night are yall interested.

KYcane

Sully,

I've got my tickets...look forward to hanging with you. Email me your travel plans when you finalize them.

NativeCane

Up in the air TSully, we have tickets to Old Crow Medicine Show at the old Ryman auditorium in Nashville for the 30th and new years eve but we have talked about selling them and going to the game.

Terrance Sullivan

NativeCane U gonna try to make the bowl game my friend.

orange 'n green in the vein

Well, I'd probably send Clint scouring for security to have me removed because I would just be merciless to him on a personal level since we were in school at the same time and he was always a knucklehead even then and it hasn't changed. The 'hand placement on Shapiro' jokes would have him blushing in no time flat.

So, time to discuss the elephant looming in Pasadena;

FSU '13, if they win the title, will have a pretty decent case to dethrone the '01 UM team as the 'GOAT.'

Why won't they when they'll set records for points scored and have a better defense than the '01 Hurricanes in points given up?

And yes, you can thank Alverage Slogan for letting them off easy as can be to start November to help them out. 'Uphold the legacy' and all that line of sloganeering.

NativeCane

You got a point with Bridgewater but dont sell yourself short, I gotta believe your 4 quarter verbal assault would at least rattle some position coaches or special teams!

orange 'n green in the vein

Posted by: NativeCane | December 08, 2013 at 07:55 PM

I have horrible news for you, it won't work Wally! Bridgewater is from the rough streets of northwest Miami in Liberty City, anything short of live rounds he doesn't even pay any heed to.

Plus, I'm not paying premium prices to watch this defensive scheme and the same game plan that never works unless Bridgewater is hungover something fierce just because it's some third tier bowl game, that's just silly my friend.

herbieibis

It's true Auburn's defense isn't that good. Fsu has not had to face this kind of offense or at least with the talent Auburn has. FSU will probably be at least a touchdown favorite but nobody expected them to beat Bama and they seem like a team of destiny. Don't want FSU any closer to us in ships than the 2 they have now. Them winning a ship ain't going to help us in recruiting. We can only help ourselves by either changing defensive phylosophies or get another coach or both.
FSU has a 2 year window, to win a ship, with the talent they have and hopefully they flop this year and next. This conference can't be helped with them winning. They are only 4 teams that have a shot, in hell of ever winning a ship and Va. Tech because of recruiting, is #4 on the list, Clemson maybe in another 30 years and us when ever we decide to get the defense fixed and of course FSU.

NativeCane

OGV, heres the plan: We get U seats behind the Louisville bench and U heckle them into submission, Trust me, this plan will work! Ha

From da homie Pete Ariz!!!

Friday

11:40 AM - Despite rumors that Ryheem Lockley would be here this weekend for a visit, that is not the case. I was told that the Miami coaches are still expecting him in this class and he will start out as a TE. If he does not make it on a visit next weekend, he might not be an EE.

Saturday

10:45 AM - Rumor floating around that Dalvin Cook woke up sick this morning and might have left his visit. That would be the worst case scenario for Miami, but I'm trying to confirm if that is true. (Check 12:05 update)

11:20 AM - I'm told there aren't any surprise visitors this weekend. The prospects expected to come made it.

12:05 PM - Dalvin Cook is 100% on campus and is "all smiles". A little under the weather, but he is there.

3:20 PM - Some updates from Practice regarding recruits 

-Yearby was there talking a lot with Duke. Both are dealing with injuries

-Not really recruiting related, but Cook was wearing a shirt with a picture of himself in action and said "Dalvin Cook". Though that was funny. 

-Dixon is 100% confirmed there. Dwyer won their state semifinal game last night and is headed to states-McDermott, Gibbons, Darling all there

Sunday

11:50 AM - Allen Hurns walking around with Travis Rudolph and Johnnie DixonHere is a terrible picture of Al Golden with both Cook and Darling

4:45 PM - I will be posting a full report tonight, but here are some quick things I'm hearing

--Dixon moving the decision back is a great sign for Miami

--This will be a very tough decision for Cook and those close to him feel like he is genuinely torn right now. 

--I continue to hear that Miami landing Cook would also give them a very, very good shot with Ermon Lane.

--After this weekend, Miami's chances with Rudolph rose drastically. Both of his parents want him here. Coley is in-homing with him today too

--Overall, staff felt great about everything that came from the weekend.

NativeCane

Longtime, one thing good about this game is we should have a healthy Morris and others and if that doesnt improve the offense then lord help us! LOL

DEM CANES!!!

WWIN

Native, good point!

NativeCane

Well Im sick of hearing that the SEC is the greatest since 21 yr old twerkers.
The biggest reason the ACC needs to break the $EC Championship run is recruiting. You know those schools are telling recruits theyll never play for a championship if they sign with a non SEC school!

DEM CANES!!!

Terrance Sullivan

My enthusiam for this bowl is really low well I am more looking forward to tailgating with my CaneSpace Family. I just want our Canes to win the game strickly for to end the bowl game and 10 win drought.

I read the chick fil a early today on espn, ow seems russell athletic is the spot.

big time drop off. Russell does not sell out, often has poor attendance. Usually a week night so tv viewership is not high either....

Not sure it makes any difference if its bridgewater or manzel, both will throw for 400+ yds before its over.

Might be a good thing to have less people see us if we get routed....

Montreal-Cane

The Herb say this,
If it ain't Miami then "F" the rest of these bums in this conference. I hope Auburn drills, those smug azzes.

I say like the Herb. Tigers beat the Criminoles.

j.w.

I'm definitely hoping A&M wins by 50. I'll wait a few days to decide on the BCS game. If you asked me yesterday I wouldn't have had to even think about it.

WWIN

The herb, I think I might be leaning towards yo state of mind!!!

It's confirmed and done. Miami vs. Louisville, 6:45 p.m., 12/28 in Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando. (Canes go to Louisville next year.)

I know it's good for the acc but something doesn't sit right wit me when I see fswho player's, coaches, and fans smiling????

And I kinda want Duke to lose just because the commissioner vouched for em over us

j.w.

I'll never learn how to type in this damned phone. Root not roof, for not foe.

WWIN, I'm pissed enough to roof against each of the acc schools but I don't know foe sure. Guarantee you I won't watch one second of the Peach Bowl or refer to it by its other name if they take Dook.

orange 'n green in the vein

Divorcing emotion from the equation, I have to say, it's better for UM if FSU wins than Auburn, under my belief that a rising tide lifts up all boats. Yes, I typed that with one hand holding my nose, how did you guess?

I won't be 'cheering' for them to win, because I have morals and a code of ethics that I won't betray, but that's the better outcome, keep the title in state. The fact that I don't think Auburn will be good enough on offense or on defense to win has nothing to do with my point of view on the matter.

Terrance Sullivan

WWM,
The Herb say this,
If it ain't Miami then "F" the rest of these bums in this conference. I hope Auburn drills, those smug azzes. No doubting they have some talent, way more than us but just because they're in the ACC, doesn't mean I'll pull for any of those teams. The only way, If maybe they were playing N.D., Texas, Flo. or OSU.

VfB_Cane

WWIM: As much as it pains me, I've got to go with our ACC rivals.
Nobody really knows the playoff selection criteria for next season, but having the defending national champs and a number of teams coming off bowl victories in your conference can only help.

WWIN

So who do we root for in the NCG and the chik-fil-a bowl?????

I always go against the $ec but I don't know if I can these games?

Montreal-Cane

With all the info about the defense we got here in the last 7 days plus... I challenge the experts to come up with a realistic list of the 5 best DC we should get at Miami to fix our D once and for all like in the good old days...A Michigan State type of defense...Then will send the list to Al Golden and asking Blake James to pay the new DC between 750K and 1M.

VfB_Cane

Wow - Matt Prater just set a new NFL record with a 64-yard field goal for the Broncos. Kind of redefines the red zone.

herbieibis

Whoever said we'd hand Georgia or A&M their 5TH loss if we played them, hasn't been watching our defense. Now, without Murray, we would beat Georgia but even their back-up QB would probably light us up and Gurley on a bad ankle would get 150, so we would win in a shootout but A&M, Manzel would lick his chops and with no pass rush, this would absolutely be a horror story. I don't want to even think about that match up.
I can't see us getting much better on defense, with these 15 or so bowl practices. Heck it took us 4 months to look this bad and it was getting worse. Whoever we play in a bowl game we're going to have to out score them anyway.

Montreal-Cane


Triangle and 360...instead of getting upset about negative comments and running away, stand strong and post positive comments MORE often to outweigh the negative?

Im hoping Miami goes to Atlanta, If they play on the 28th in Orlando, that is my wife's birthday and I know she would not let me talk her into going to the game as a gift……I will be at a crossroads people.

j.w.

Disagree Soup. Bowl games have little to do with record unless it's the title game. They are all about tv appeal and ticket sales, and we have both over Duke. Plus, we've been screwed many times over the years with no help from any commissioner. We earned that bid as much as Duke did, and Duke's performance last night was bad enough to drop down.

Montreal-Cane

USA today Miami is ranked at no. 25

VfB_Cane

Louisville is the highest ranked possible opponent (AP poll #18) with the best record (11-1).
As bowl games are for style points only, a win over Louisville is going to look better than handing Texas A&M or Georgia their 5th loss.

(And if we lose it won't matter much where or who we played, as long as it's not against a I-AA team.)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

Stop with the complaining and Duke bashing. They earned it on the field. U can't argue against that. U want to play in the ACC championship game and a better bowl? Beat Duke on the field!

WWIN

It's bad when your league commissioner lobbies against you for Duke in football.... SMDH

j.w.

The ACC reportedly f'ed us over with the Chick Fil A bowl. Now we play Louisville. And we get to open ACC play with Louisville next year. Makes me almost miss the bad old days of bowl bans. As for basketball, I assume that I made the right choice in missing that game? Sad part is this is Larrinaga's third year and this is his team.

Ravens hold on to win, 29-26, after craziest 2:00 in NFL this season. 5 go-ahead scores in final 2:05.

I HATE THE NEW NFL THAT HAS BECOME MORE LIKE THE NBA THAN FOOTBALL.
