Alright.. I thought\hoping kirby was coming around and moved back to the middle.

Ohio_Cane

I was talking specifically about the 3-4. When we're in the 4-3, Perryman will be MLB. 3-4 will be Perryman and Kirby, I believe.

Ohio_Cane

I can see how I confused people since I only mentioned 3 LBs. My bad.

UMike

Either way, the LB play should improve.

Lurker

Olsen getting plenty of praise for his work at practice today.

But then is seen leaving after practice with a big bag of ice wrap over his right hand. Hope it's nothing serious.

Tim "Ice" Harris has made it clear his next job will be as a coach. If #UM #Canes don't hire him as one, be assured another univ will.

Go Canes

@smillerdegnan: #UM #Canes QB Kevin Olsen has another good day at practice - just walked away in street clothes w large ice pack on rt hand

UMike

So the ice on the right hands is a theme...hard high-fives maybe?

If UM doesn't Hire Him UM is in Trouble!!

UMike

The position Ice is in might just be a temp thing until something opens up. Im sure a school that wants South Florida kids will snatch him up quick.

Assuming U mean as a position coach. I agree, but don't see any reason why they wouldn't.

Ohio_Cane

UMike, it's the only position he can take without a degree. He's earning his degree while he works the current job. He'll get a position coach/other job once he's got the degree. Golden won't let him go easily.

I didnt see any reason to keep D'No... but...I think when something opens up they will, they would be dumb not to.

UMike

You need a degree to be a position coach? Hmmm

trianglecane

Off topic.. I have decided to start hunting with a compound bow instead of a rifle. What brand\model should a beginner start with?

First, Tim "Ice" Harris will get his degree. Then he's fair game. #Canes

------------------------------------------

Beginner or not, the better bow U get, the better off U are. Compound bows can be adjusted to your strength. I wouldn't use any less than 40lb draw weight for deer. No need to go over 60-65.

The higher the draw weight, the harder it is to hold for longer periods of time, so be careful to practice a lot. Picture the deer (or whatever animal) walking up and stopping right behind a tree/bush/etc when U draw back and see how long U can keep it drawn back without letting it down, but still being able to be accurate after holding for a few seconds or up to 20-30 seconds if U can.

You're going to pay more for a better bow, but you'll also get better results and accuracy with them.

Me and my buddy both have a Bowtech Destroyer 340, but the 350 is what everyone is buying now. Bowtech, Hoyt and Mathews are all good brands to look at.

Thanks Ohio!

UMike

I think Im going to sign my daughter up for MMA classes... anyone here have any experience with kids and MMA or self defense classes?

raizecane

Another off-topic request - me and the family will be heading to the mountains in July. We are looking at different places - Helen ga, Bryson City NC and Gatlinburg TN. Does anyone have a suggestion on cabins at any of these locations or any other location in the smokey moutains? Thanks

UMike

raize, I have stayed in the cabins in the smokeys in Gatlinburg and loved it. Loved sitting in the hot tub on the balcony looking at the smokies. Plus Pigeon Forge is right there with lots of fun stuff to do and see.

---------------------------------------

I took Tae-Kwon-Do as a kid. My dad put me in it. Got my black belt at 13. I quit because I wanted to focus just on sports. Also, I took MMA as an adult. Any questions regarding that, let me know and I'll let U know what I can.

Never put my children through them yet tho, but I will be when they're old enough.

UMike

Ohio.. my daughter will be in middle school next year, and I just want her to be able to defend herself. I can teach her how to street fight all day, but there isnt any discipline in that and I want her to have the knowledge to fight off an adult as well. Was thinking of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I'm wondering about the costs involved and if it helps, is worth it.

Ohio_Cane

It is definitely worth it. The discipline in martial arts or MMA is something not all parents can or know how to teach. It's also something that I think should be taught by someone other than the parents, since we all know kids only listen to and obey so much of what they're parents instill.

I don't think there's really a "wrong" answer as to which type U pick. She'll learn how to defend herself as well as learning discipline from any MA or MMA class.

Tae-Kwon-Do was good because you learned more how to defend yourself more on your feet than on the ground and Jiu-Jitsu will teach more how to defend yourself on the ground more than on your feet. Both are taught in each, and both are important.

Regarding costs, I'd ask around close to you since they can vary widely.

UMike

Ohio, when I was reading up on Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, they said the main difference between normal Jiu-Jitsu and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is that the Gracie style teaches to defend both on your feet and on the ground. It also said the class teaches to defend against adults and against other children without really hurting them.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | March 18, 2014 at 01:43 PM

I agree with this. My sister and I took classes in self defense from about 7 to 14. Just getting to understand a defensive state of mind is one thing these classes should be drilling home and is a super positive thing.

Ohio_Cane

UMike, I never did Gracie JJ, but that sounds right.

The JJ I did around here did more on ground stuff, but the teacher also taught us harmful AND harmless ways in the same situations. AKA street way vs competition way.

UMike

Dude, I agree. Where I grew up everyone had a defensive state of mind and you HAD to know how to defend/fight, or run fast. But my kids (thankfully) dont live in that type of environment so it isnt natural to them like it is to me. But since my daughter is getting older and developing (Lord help me!!!!) I think I want her to know proper ways to defend herself againt kids and adults.

Exactly! My wife has no defensive state of mind, grew up sheltered in Idaho Falls, which is funny 'cuz here Dad is a hardcore dude.

UMike

lol.. my uncles made dam sure I knew how to fight, but they mainly made sure I wasnt no punk (which of course would look bad on them).... I dont want THAT for my kids lol... just to be able to defend themselves and understand threats are out there. But street fights arent anything like a woman or girl being attacked.

The Dude

Posted by: UMike | March 18, 2014 at 02:11 PM

Agreed. This is why more women should carry weapons. A gun, spray, knife... something. There are bad people out there. Obviously for your daughter she cant carry a pistol, best to run and scream or disable, run and scream.

UMike

Right.. thats why the whole "being able to defend against adults" appeals to me.

trianglecane

My dad took me to a boxing ring at 4 in east LA. LOL! needless to say a little mexican kid kick my butt. But, I did learn to fight back..

I love my pops, BUT i will not do that to my boys, it's karate starting this summer. More about gaining confidence that kick'n booty.

Dude on a Pale Horse

To be a position coach, doesn't it have to be a Master's degree?

Dude on a Pale Horse

I'm not worried about Tim Irvin's 40 time at all. He is a tazmanian devil out there. Besides WELL OVER half the 40 times and Ht/Wt numbers out there are exaggerated.

Is that a serious question?

Lurker = Troll

raizecane

UMike - both of my daughters took Tae-Kwon-Do and both got up to 2nd degree black belt.

As far as cost goes, my wife was at trainig so much, they offered her a part time job and the classes were then free so we got lucky. But it can get expensive because you have to pay extra when it come time to earn a new belts.

After 6 years, both of my kids got tired and i was not going to force them so my best advise is to sign them up, support them until they no longer find it enjoyable and hope that by then, they have the basics. My youngest is only 105 lbs so there is no way she can defend herself against an adult male so also teach them about their surroundings and what to look for.

Well there U go. We were just talking about this:

### Tim Harris said his new role at UM is almost identical to the one he had at UM under Randy Shannon “but I feel more comfortable doing it. I understand the roles.”

He needs to graduate from college to be able to coach, and Harris said he is two semesters away from doing that. “I know I can coach,” he said. “My record speaks for itself.”

SOUP

I think that since we had become accustom to giving up 40 or more, giving up only 36 to Louisville was an improvement, so we were trending up :)

I thought U gave up bashing for Lent? LOL

Finally somebody who knows football.

Dat's my boi!

Lurker

Dude, I'm not a troll.

To be honest, you asking that question was either you trolling or the kind of question someone who knows very little about college football would ask.
