Q. Since the announcement of Washington, D.C., as the site of the 2016 ACC Basketball Tournament, there has been a lot of speculation and anticipation about 2017 and the years that follow. Is there any timetable in your mind as to when you would like to see that finalized and announced?

A. I think that we’re close. We’ve had some really good discussions about the future of the tournament and where it needs to be, and I would expect that in the next couple of months we will have an announcement. We have two more years in Greensboro, which is comforting because they do a terrific job with our tournament. I think we will have an appropriate mix of our footprint in the location of the tournament, starting with these next two years, and then in Washington. We have been very successful with our tournament there previously.

Q. And with the calendar now having flipped over to 2014, Louisville is set to come on board as an ACC member on July 1. Is everything full-speed ahead as far as that goes?

A. Yes, and we are very excited about Louisville coming in, as they will be an excellent addition to the Atlantic Coast Conference. They bring a very strong, competitive program from top to bottom. They had a phenomenal year last year with a major bowl win, the NCAA title in men’s basketball, the Final Four in women’s basketball and the College World Series. That doesn’t happen very often, but I think that is indicative of the quality of athletic program they are going to bring to our conference. It is an exciting thing for the ACC and our fans.

SOUP.. I knew Al would understand

Yeah, just got off the phone with him and he seemed genuinely concerned. His point was basically this: "If I lose UMike and he flips at the last minute this recruiting class is a bust." LOL

UMike

SOUP...see Golden has some vision, although it gets a bit blurred with look at the D, but overall good vision lol

UMike

Mt 4th/5th grade girls basketball team is so aggressive and feisty we were in the "double bonus" the whole 4th quarter last night lol... still won tough.

raizecane

Umike - I just heard that Golden approached TV to talk about his recruiting. However, it appears D'no also made the trip and for whetever reason, TV bolted out the back...jumped in his car and well....click the link to see whats currently happening

Maaaaaan, I don't know what the hell's wrong with our league. Had a game the other night...the damn scorekeepers were awarding the other team 2 POINTS FOR FTS!...and the refs we had, had to be reffin' a football game or something, because they weren't callin' ISH! Couldn't even coach our kids, I had to literally watch the scoreboard, AND! the refs. Ole' SORRY @$$! league!

SOUP

TSully...we good, we good.

UMike

CR... I feel you man. I always got to watch the refs and the dam kid working the possession arrow lol.. some times the have these teenagers doing it, and they get to talking and dont flip the arrow. Our refs were actually pretty good last night

UMike

And they always seem to hire these refs that dont know he rules specific to our league. Seems like every game I got to go over some things with them lol

Terrance Sullivan

Soup Sounds like a plan.

LMAO! YUP!

UMike

CR, for the girls you can't play D until the ball is past the 3 point line in the first half. The 3rd quarter it moves to half court, and you can press in the 4th. They do this to prevent 10,000 jump balls lol... so last night my girl gets a rebound, but she is on the floor, but has possession, this girl ties her up and they call a jump ball. I'm like "hey ref, they cant ties us up once we have possession, they have to get back to half court"... just always something like that.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Four University of Miami football players will trade in their cleats for track spikes this spring.

Artie Burns, Phillip Dorsett, Josh Johnson and Walter Tucker will compete for the Hurricanes track and field team. Dorsett and Johnson will run sprints, while Burns and Tucker will join the hurdlers.
“Miami’s had a long history of football players becoming excellent track athletes,” Miami director of track & field and cross country Amy Deem said. “We are glad to continue that tradition with this group. What is especially exciting is that Phillip, Artie, Walter and Josh come from strong, successful high school track programs that can help us in building our men’s program into a national power.”
Dorsett returns for a second season with Miami track after making a significant impact in 2013. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla., native placed third in 60m (6.80) at the 2013 New Mexico Classic, running the fourth-fastest time in Miami history. Dorsett finished fourth in the men’s long jump at the 2013 ACC Indoor Championships with a jump of 7.36m, third-best in Miami history. Dorsett also posted the third-fastest men’s indoor 200m time in Miami history, running a 21.09 at the 2013 New Mexico Classic. A wide receiver for the Hurricanes, Dorsett averaged over 20 yards per reception and scored two touchdowns in his junior season.
Burns and Tucker were freshmen who contributed on the football field in 2013 and they are expected to shine on the track, as well.
Burns was a three-time Class 3A state champion in the 110m hurdles for Miami Northwestern High School. As a junior in high school, Burns posted the fastest 110m and 300m hurdles times in the nation. The true freshman played cornerback for the Hurricanes this past season, collecting his first career interception. Burns also made an impact on special teams, averaging 26.1 yards per kick return, blocking a field goal and forcing a fumble.
Tucker is a two-time Class 2A state champion in the 110m hurdles for American Heritage School. Tucker was the 2013 2A State runner-up in the 300m hurdles and finished his senior season ranked No. 11 in the nation in the 110m hurdles. On the football field, Tucker played special teams and got snaps at fullback for the Hurricanes.
Johnson completes the foursome of football players running track this season for the Hurricanes. The freshman ran sprints at The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Fla., and will do the same for the Canes. Johnson was a member of Miami’s scout team, serving as a wide receiver.
The quartet joins a long line of football players who were standouts for Miami’s track & field program. Stars such as Santana Moss, Ed Reed, Vince Wilfork, Bennie Blades and Horace Copeland are just a handful of Miami football players who were impact performers for the Hurricane track & field program.
Currently, five indoor school records and nine outdoor school records are held by former Miami football players.

KYCane...I purchased your tickets for both basketball games for ND on 2/19 and BC 2/22.

Old Skool

Time magazine predicting another Polar Vortex to produce bitterly cold weather for the Super Bowl.

SOUP

KYCane and Terrance...Baseball single game tix do not go on sale until the first week in February. I'll buy those then.

CaneRock

UMike, in our league, you can't play back-court D/press...till the last 2 minutes of each half, or, you're down by 10 or more.

Speaking of which, my lazy butt has to put in a press breaker, and a good full court/half court press in this weekend.

You think D'Onofrexcuses has a good pressure D LMAO!

SOUP

Skool...the only way to prevent another polar vortex for the Super Bowl is to make sure Kate Upton is there. She's hot!

UMike

CR.... we have the same 10 point rule. For the boys you cannot press until the last 2 mins. We are actually working on the full court press break tonight at practice lol

According to the stats from 1992 Golden never played in a game, caught a pass or scored a TD for the Pats.

Posted by: 86Cane | January 17, 2014 at 10:06 AM

Only reason he didn't catch a pass or score a TD was because No'D wasn't coaching against the Pats back than...

CaneRock

UMike, only reason I'm coaching, is because my son didn't make the JV team this season. His @$$ BETTER! make the team next year, cuz this basketball ish is for the birds LMAO!

RCCF

I guess I'm the only one concerned with Shermarke Spence...aht well so much for CANES for CANES..lets keep talking about kids who are STRONG maybes..


RCCF

CaneRock

Pretty amazing that a guy who'd never been a head coach til 5 yrs ago has now won national Coach of Year honors in NCAA & NFL. #ChipKelly

UMike

CR... I either head coach or assist in just about all my kids sports lol.. Im the head coach of my daughters 4th & 5th grade basketball team at the elementary school. Last year was my first year with that, now in my second and I love it. Good group of girls and I get to be involved with my daughter. I have also been an assistant coach on her softball team for 2 years in spring, summer and fall. In the fall I pull double duty and assist with my sons football team. I love being involved. Only got another year or so before their off to middle school and then no more coaching for me lol

2015 recruiting class in SoFl for those who care:

UMike

RCCF... do you think we should have offered Spence?

UMike

SOUP, your late to the party with that man lol

RCCF

Absolutely...do U not see that kid making plays all thru his highlight and not only that he is Sean Spence's brother I believe we should have offered Niko Marley too just because...I mean we offered Ray3 why not the other legacies??


RCCF

Terrance Sullivan

Soup Awesome!

dj moonbat

I mean we offered Ray3 why not the other legacies??

Posted by: RCCF | January 17, 2014 at 01:25 PM


Because Ray Lewis is really, really scary.

UMike

RCCF, personally I do put to much stock in the highlight tapes, because the sole purpose of the highlight tape is to make the player look good lol...I do think Ray3 was a legit prospect, I think with the talent available in this class Spence gets left out. I think FIU may have been his only D1 offer.

SOUP, your late to the party with that man lol

Story of my life, I miss all the fun.

According to Rivals there are 20 recruits rated 3-Star or high in Miami alone. 7 4-Star or higher.

SOUP

With three final weekends of visits left before National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 5., most of the best players in the country -- almost all already committed -- are playing the game and looking for nice weekend get-aways while building the suspense for their "big announcements." Personally, I hate what recruiting has become. I'm convinced most of these kids have made up their minds and only a select few are really on the fence with decisions.

With that, I give you the rundown of how the Class of 2014 for the Hurricanes has been pieced together thus far. As you know, things change quickly in the recruiting world. All it takes is one tweet to send a fan base off the edge these days. Miami has 26 players currently "committed" to being a part of the incoming class and could add more or lose more in the coming weeks. The class ranks eighth according to ESPN; ninth according to Rivals and 10th according to 247Sports.

RCCF

I agree with highlight films...I was more asking to the tune of has anyone seen him live and in person...is he really not worth the call seeing as we can do worst?


RCCF

UMike

RCCF, I have not seen MNW play this year, BUT, Im sure the staff has plenty of times since we have 2 commits from MNW and were after another (Robinson) at one point. You would think the staff would of noticed him. Not that they havent missed before, but if a kid is at MNW, usually the staff is well aware.

SOUP

MANNY: "Miami definitely needs to sign at least two backs in this class, though. If they don't that's a big failure. Personally, I'd give Coral Gables High standout Gregory Howell (6-0, 204) a look."

Hmmmmmmmmmmm...

Howell, a 3.0 grade-point average student, is one of those players.

Howell has become a faster runner by competing in track in the spring, adding speed to his size and strength.

Howell, who has offers from Minnesota, FAU, Northern Illinois, Marshall and Georgia State, improved his 40-yard dash time to 4.5 seconds.

“Greg can just run through people,” Pollard said. “But this year, I think you’ll see him run past and away from defenders more.”

Howell will try to help an offense that averaged only 11.5 points per game become more explosive this season.

“We’re going to pound people on the ground and throw the ball,” Howell said. “We had to change a lot of game plans last season depending on the opponents. This time, we have an offense we’re going to stick to and challenge people to stop us.”

Thought we were through recruiting RB...

"UM lost Brandon Powell to UF, but UM coaches this week “said they were through [recruiting] at that position,” said All Saints Episcopal (Tx.) coach Aaron Beck, whose three-star back, Daniel Gresham, has interest in Miami after Louisville parted ways with him Sunday."

Nice article very informative. The kids in this group appear to be pretty good and should help. I do not know if they make immediate impact on team; that remains to be seen. I do fell that it is very easy to rank and recruit guys against inferior competition. When one gets to college the competition is much better and not everybody pans out to coulda shouda woulda.

It will be a shame if we plug these kids with good potential into O and D systems that want to play nice be gentle. I hope people go back look at film and see the disaster was obvious from FSU game onward.
I also hope these kids have some good fundamentals as I think we either do not know how to or refuse to coach the basics...maybe both. I can only hope for the best. We will see....
