Lurker this is a definition...we all use them or study them....still sounds kind of deep and confusing but it is what it is....

Allegory is a literary device in which characters or events in a literary, visual, or musical art form represent or symbolize ideas and concepts. Allegory has been used widely throughout the histories of all forms of art; a major reason for this is its immense power to illustrate complex ideas and concepts in ways that are easily digestible and tangible to its viewers, readers, or listeners. An allegory conveys its hidden message through symbolic figures, actions, imagery, and/or events. Allegory is generally treated as a figure of rhetoric; a rhetorical allegory is a demonstrative form of representation conveying meaning other than the words that are spoken.

CR it is even weirder how we are both right there 2X....we must be tuned in LOL

As for Feliciano's comment about being taken care of for two months of the year when living off campus and not getting $1200 checks...hmmmm. I remember not doing things I couldn't afford in college quite commonly, including living off campus. If you can't afford to pay your way those two months, nobody forces them to live off campus. These aren't the kind of issues I empathize with them over one bit. Aside from that, there are probably 1-2 players finishing yearly who go straight into careers they get to be millionaires at. Odds may not be great for this as college ballplayers, but they're a heck of a lot better odds of this than for any other students. Also, the benefits they get during college are a lot better than what I earned working in college. Some struggles are supposed to be part of the college experience. We have to keep in mind that, as tough as it is to be a college athlete, especially a football player, many of these guys are used to being well taken care of over the years because of their skill sets, not necessarily struggling during the last few years of high school, at least, as much as we're led to believe.

BTW, as much revenue as the universities bring in because of football and basketball, most of the other sports are money losers and the regular non-athlete students aren't getting the tuition reduced as a result. How many UM students truly can afford 50 grand/year? BTW, back in the early 80s, tuition was under 6 grand/year if paying full price. Remember back then, 86?

There are too many variables in play to come up with a 100% clear black or white answer on this whole topic. One thing is for sure. It brings up lots of conversation and strong opinions, kinda like politics and religion.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- No. 24 Miami extended its winning streak to five consecutive games Wednesday night, powering past visiting Bethune-Cookman for a 10-1 victory at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

"I thought it was a good team win," head coach Jim Morris said. "I thought we pitched good, played good defense, and got a lot of hits from a lot of guys."

The Hurricane offense exploded for six runs in the fourth inning, as Miami jumped out to a commanding lead and cruised behind an impressive relief performance from senior Javi Salas (2-3). RBI doubles from Dale Carey and Zack Collins keyed the outburst for Miami, who tied a season-long winning streak with the win.

"I've been working a lot with [pitching coach] J.D. [Arteaga] to make sure I'm pitching down in the zone," Salas said. "That's when I'm most effective. I'm not really a strikeout guy, so I'm trying to pitch to contact. I felt good out there today, and my defense made some good plays for me."

Salas tossed 3.0 clean innings of relief, allowing just two hits and striking out two to earn the victory. The Coral Gables native took extra satisfaction in topping the Wildcats, who tagged him for six runs in his last start in a disappointing 7-3 defeat.

"I felt like I had something to prove against them," Salas said. "Obviously my last outing was disappointing. It felt good today...we can take that flight tomorrow and we're all going to be happy to go up there in another ACC series and take care of business.'

Freshman Derik Beauprez made his third consecutive midweek start in the win, throwing 4.0 innings and scattering five hits and one earned run. The Colorado native successfully worked his way out of some early jams, finishing the night with three strikeouts on 83 pitches. He gave way to Salas, who combined with freshman Danny Garcia and sophomore Enrique Sosa to protect the lead the rest of the way.

After falling behind in the early going, the Hurricanes (18-12) struck for two runs off Bethune-Cookman starter John Sever in the bottom of the third to take a 2-1 lead.

Freshman Sebastian Diaz, making his career-first start at designated hitter, opened the action with a four-pitch walk. A sacrifice bunt from Alex Hernandez moved Diaz to second, and senior Dale Carey was hit by a Sever pitch to put two runners on base. Senior Tyler Palmer delivered on the opportunity, cracking an RBI single through the leftside to plate a sliding Diaz.

With two outs, Willie Abreu laced a two-out hit up the middle to score Carey, as Miami took a 2-1 advantage in front of a crowd of 2,322.

Abreu extended his career-long hitting streak to six games with a 2-for-3 performance at the plate. The multi-hit performance was his team-high 11th of the season.

Miami blew the game open with six runs in the fourth, as a bases-clearing double from freshman slugger Zack Collins capped the scoring and made it 8-1 in favor of the Hurricanes. All six runs - the most by Miami in a single inning this season - were scored with two outs.

Back-to-back walks from sophomore Brandon Lopez and Diaz put two runners on base, and an RBI single from Alex Hernandez to left scored the first run of the inning. The team-leading 10th double of the season from Carey made it 4-1 and put two runners in scoring position, and an opposite-field basehit from Palmer made it 5-1.

After Abreu walked to load the bases, Collins unloaded on a 2-2 curveball that split the outfield and upped Miami's lead to 8-1. The Pembroke Pines, Fla., native continued a torrid pace at the plate, where he's hitting .378 over the last ten games.

"You always have more confidence when you get it together," the freshman slugger said. "It's all the same mindset. It's just putting the ball in play with two strikes."

Collins three-RBI performance brought his season total to a team-high 22, including 11 over his last five games.

"I've always had the same approach," he said. "I've been putting the bat on the ball now, grinding out at bats with two strikes, trying not to strike out as much and put the ball in play,"

The hit chased Sever (3-2), who allowed a career-high eight runs on eight hits and four walks over 3.2 innings.

Salas, Garcia and Sosa combined to keep the Wildcats off the board for the final five innings, allowing just two combined hits. Miami's bullpen extended its scoreless streak to 16.2 consecutive innings dating back to a March 24 matchup against Virginia.

"It was important to get [Javi] back out and pitching," Morris said. "Whether it's in the bullpen or in the rotation, we need him pitching for us, and we need his leadership on our team."

Sebastian Diaz walked five times in his start, marking the first such performance since Miami Hurricanes legend Mike Fiore walked five times against Mercer in 1988. A bases-loaded walk from Diaz made it 9-1 in the eighth, while an RBI single from Hernandez capped the scoring at 10-1.

Here is a couple of Suggestions for the upcoming season:
1. Have like 3 or 4 key games where several Canespacers are at a certain game. My nominations are FSU, Duke, UNC as home games, GT, Virginia, Louisville as road games.
2. For the road games we need to revive the road CaneSpace Correspondent to make a sign with CaneSpacers name on it and take pictures of the game and brief description for the blog.
VA Cane Yes would love to meet U, and a lot of CaneSpacers that I have not met like Ohio, CGNC, and a host of others.

Though Robert H. Richards IV was convicted of rape, the wealthy heir to the du Pont family fortune was spared prison by a Delaware court in 2009 because he would "not fare well" behind bars, according to court documents CNN obtained Tuesday.

Richards is a great-grandson of the chemical magnate Irenee du Pont.

He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended.

Unbelievable...

From a CIS poster...

FWIW: Ohio State Standing out to Jordan Cronkrite

It's not easy to get the best players from Florida, and Urban Meyer knows that as a well as anyone. In February, the Buckeyes signed Johnnie Dixon from Miami and shocked a number of people who believed that in no way would Dixon end up playing his football up north.

Ohio State has made South Florida a major priority in 2015 and the same problems exist this time around: how to convince the south's best players that football in Columbus is on par with the football in SEC country. One player Ohio State is hoping to bring north is Miami (Westminster Christian School) tailback Jordan Cronkrite.

Like Dixon, Cronkrite has offers from a who's who of college football powerhouses: all three major Florida schools, Alabama, Auburn, Notre Dame, Clemson and many others. Also like Dixon, Ohio State's Zach Smith and Urban Meyer are on the case.

"I talk to (Smith) almost every day," Cronkrite said of the Buckeyes coach who handles South Florida for Ohio State. "Ohio State is a great program with great tradition and that gets your attention."

Johnnie Dixon's almost immediate success is another thing that has caught Cronkrite's attention. In fact, it's one of the things he and Urban Meyer discussed earlier this week."

"I talked to Coach Meyer on the phone earlier this week," the 5-foot-11, 196-pounder added. "He said they really love my film and that he could see me in scarlet and gray. He wants me to get up there as soon as possible. He also talked a little bit about Johnnie and how great he's doing up there. He said that the South Florida guys can do that if they come up to Columbus."


Like Dixon, Cronkrite faces some pressure to stay home for college. He's visited Miami four times in the past month but says the Hurricanes have a built-in advantage due to their proximity.

"I've been there a lot because it's ten minutes away from my house," he said of the Hurricanes. "Plus, I like to see anything football related, football is football. If the best place for me isn't in Florida, I have no problem leaving."

Ohio State hopes that the first step in signing Cronkrite is an unofficial visit, as Meyer eluded to during his recent conversation. Cronkrite thinks that could happen sometime soon, and if it doesn't the Buckeyes are going to be involved anyway.

"I'll most likely go up there in June," he added of a visit. "Coach Meyer wants me to call him once a week."

UMike

^^^ Not sure what "immediate success" Dixon is having since he hasn't played a game yet lol

Wealthy folks always seem to "Fare" well in court. If it was you or me wed be headed for old Sparky!

DEM CANES!!!

Ohio_Cane

Isn't the point of prison for people to NOT fare well? I hate stories like this...

UMike

Ohio..thats what Im thinking.. who the hell does well in prison smfh... I hope they find dude dead in the street

UMike

With that way of thinking there would be like 100 guys in prison in this country lol

Ohio_Cane

Let's just tell it like it is... The wealthy get special treatment. Even in court. It's a sad day when a rapist, let alone a CONVICTED CHILD rapist, doesn't go to prison.

UMike

Crazy.. he was actually convicted, not just charged AND it was his TODDLER daughter.. I wont if that will work if I ever get arrested again.. just tell the judge "your honor, I wont fair well in prison"... he would probably add on more time lol... I did more time in jail on a traffic violation than this guy did for raping his own toddler daughter... very sad.

raizecane

UMIKE - If that doesn't tell you something is wrong with our justice system, nothing will. Somebody needs to take Robert H. Richards IV in a small room and literally beat him to death....i know if I was related to that little girl, I would volunteer. Sick Bastard......

raizecane

Another story of the wealthy not getting what they deserve -

This week, after news of Richards' 2009 case came to light, many took to Twitter to criticize the judge in the case, saying that it echoed a recent Texas case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four people but received no jail time. Ethan Couch was sentenced last year to 10 years' probation.

A witness in Couch's case claimed the teenager was a victim of "affluenza" -- the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy.


WTF??????

NativeCane

Unbelievable...Posted by: UMike | April 03, 2014 at 06:17 AM

Yeah, if the parents didnt set limits it was the courts duty to punish the lad!
