If 2014 is a repeat from 2013 it's gonna be straight up anarchy in tha SPACE

No it won't because I will not allow it.

Especially if I ban U and your ilk? LOL

I am disappointed in the attitude of Andre Johnson. Honors heaped on him at the U, considered one of the best in the pros. He has done a lot of great things on and off the field.

Now he's crying foul in public with his problems and complaints. Crying about coaching, playoffs, career. There is nothing wrong with feeling these things. A man does not take care of his business this way. Even more troubling not coming to OTA's and workouts; thats a quitter attitude.

They say they cannot trade him because he's owed too much money. He is 33 years old, with 3 years left on his deal. I don't care how great he has been; he has!! When you have that kind of attitude I do not need you that bad. Again, he is a great player but he is not God or Jesus Christ. I worship them, not AJ.

Of course some will jump on his bandwagon and say he's earned the right to feel that way, and should say whatever. He's been paid big $ for a long time. Go on that field one time 11 on 1 big boy, see how well you do then. These people always forget this is a TEAM sport. I love his ability and he is a great player; I do not want or need that kind of attitude.

Sorry thats my opinion as a coach.

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

I totally agree with Lurker

VA Cane you have a right to feel the way you do but things in life are about perspective. When you are a professional you have a RIGHT to choose where you want to work, The money he earns is set by the market he works in and should not be held against him. He has been the best performing NON DIVA WR of his era of DIVA WR's. One could say his market both in terms of football production and endorsements have been hurt because Houston has had such poor QB play and team performance but he has endured and suffered both in stats and money because of that. He has every right to choose to play in a work location that better suits him. That is what America is all about, there is not "loyalty" in the professional world, that is just in kids sports or your grandfather's era or work. Today you have to be loyal to yourself and your family. Andre works hard and as an AMERICAN he has every right to go work where he chooses. Staying with the Texans is not something he has to do. Also I am sure he voiced this to the front office but they also have failed him for years, At some point you have to leverage your fame and use the media as a tool to help the front office do as you want. If any of us had any leverage at work we would all use it to extract either more money or a better working environment.

CONGRATS! to the BB team! I have to admit, that I'm a bandwagon fan when it comes to Canes BB. I think the last time I watched an entire game, was when Miami beat FSU in the CWS...I think Michael Neu closed that game.

Standard Shriver

woke up this morning Asia time to find our Canes have won the ACC. Cant be more thrilled for Morris and the boys. i hope to get to Omaha to see them in person if all works out. if any of you habe been to Omaha for the Series you know how much fun it is to be there.

Hipe we can turn some fans out if it happens.

Dude on a Pale Horse

It will be fun to watch.

BEERicane

That extra 1/4 mile is a killer. And the strategy of the race is very different. And add the stress of race season and the practices, injuries are always a concern at Belmont.

Dude on a Pale Horse

We shall see. I'll have another, big brown, smarty jones, funny cide, war emblem all failed at the third leg.

California Chrome wins Preakness. On to Belmont for the triple crown.

CaneRock

Respectfully, I disagree. They had to beg the fan base like crazy for the $7 million required to upgrade practice facilities and build a new turf practice field. Have you seen the practice fields recently? Shameful!

Posted by: Lurker | May 17, 2014 at 05:31 PM

JMHO...I don't think they didn't upgrade the facilities for lack of money, I think they finally upgraded because they didn't have a choice.

Lurker

Actually I did not mean offense, I just strongly disagree.

Honestly, you come across as an intransigent zealot who can't stand to be called out.

I stand by my position that calling AJ's manhood or character into question, without knowing the inside specific circumstances nor the actual individual, is not only extreme and foolish, it's delusional to the extent you think you actually know the man's character.

I don't claim to know his character for sure either, but I do know his acts, deeds, and reputation as a professional. From everything I can tell, it's spotless.

VA Cane

I mean no offense

You always mean offense, that's your purpose and goal when on here.

You are not the first or last person whose sole purpose and plan is to do just that. Thats fine it is easily overlooked.

elliott

I really feel as though UM should start Kaaya this season and bring in Rosier on certain formations/packages. This could be the deciding factor from us winning 7 games with Olson and 10 with Kaaya. He has the arm, vision, and brains to be a great QB. His film looks amazing and he already looks better than Crow or Olson. Not sure what a competition is needed for.

Montreal-Cane

FSU and Florida lost today.

Montreal-Cane

The Hurricanes (#1 seed) will begin their run at the 2014 ACC Championship in Greensboro, N.C., on either Wednesday (May 21) or Thursday (May 22).

Montreal-Cane

Congrats to Jim Morris, the coaching staff and the players for a great regular season...Now the real season will begin!

The Canes reached 40 victories in baseball in the regular season for the first time since 2008 which is last time they went to CWS. Miami went 27-3 over its final 30 contests - emerging victorious in its seven remaining ACC series and compiling a 19-2 record over those games.

BEERicane

This AJ story is old news here in Houston. Happened 4 days ago. He was presenting a $30K check to Houston Area Women's Center. Media was there. He did not "run to the papers."

jcane

As Lurker said, the Canes are ACC regular season champs and go into the ACC tnmt. as the #1 seed obviously. FSU lost to Duke today, and UVa is losing in the deciding game of their three game series with WFU, 4-1, top of the 7th. Of course, these outcomes won't affect where UM is seeded in the tnmt, but don't hurt when it comes to final season rankings, potentially increasing the odds further of better superregional seeding. This could give a bit of wiggle room with a little tnmt. slipup, although winning the tnmt. would cover any concerns more than adequately. Barring a speedy exit from the tnmt, I don't see them not being in the top 8 for seedings and having a superregional hosting assured, IF advancing to that point.

Good job, U baseball. Nice season after a bit of a slow start.

CaneRock

Me personally, I'd rather UM stay as SLS. But at the same time, what other CFB team in America would play in a stadium like that, with that view. I'm only disappointed that UM didn't come up with the idea FIRST!

CaneRock

Lurker, UM doesn't show the books, so all the media and fans can do is speculate. But I think they have the finances to do either...build their own stadium, or to partner with Beckham on that PortMiami stadium. And IMO, the latter is more intriguing for UM. Think about the return on a stadium that's built on some prime water-front property...that's IF Beckham can pull it off.

Lurker

So AJ is not a "strong man" according to your definition of what a strong man is.

Seriously, and I mean no offense, but do you realize how ridiculous and ignorant that sounds?

Lurker

Canes are regular season ACC CHAMPIONS!!!

VA Cane


Don't worry, he's not trying out for your team.

Its a business and he will make $30 mil over the next 3 seasons if he choses to stay in Houston. Great man great player great humanitarian. No question. So why not go into the office, state your case and your wishes and get the trade? Somebody would be interested, but it may be for less money. If you want that championship so bad, does the money really matter? Sometimes you cannot have both. I would love to see him go out with a title. So you need to go to the papers to speak for you? If you are not a strong man, I guess so. If you are, thern tell them in a professional manner how you feel, what you want and do what it takes to get it on your own. That's what a reasonable person would do.

Lurker


Posted by: VA Cane | May 17, 2014 at 01:38 PM

Don't worry, he's not trying out for your team.

Back on earth, in the real world, no reasonable person would find fault with his strategy. He's trying to get traded to a team that has a better chance of winning.

The guy has been loyal, a pro's pro, and has been nothing but a hall of fame player and a great citizen. He's trying to go out like a Tony Gonzales.

AJ has only maybe 2-3 years left in his career, if that, and he's earned the right to TRY and go out with a winner. Look at Houston's a QB roster and that ought to tell you the kind of non-winning offense they are going to have.

This is the pros. It's different. There is no loyalty and sentimentality. If the Texans felt AJ had little to give or blew out his knee, they could cut him and leave him high and dry with no money and no contract, other than what was guaranteed, which in the NFL is only a fraction of the total contract.

It's a business. He's still a winner, a class act, and rather than go through the motions and collect a paycheck for what's guaranteed to be a crappy team, he wants to play in meaningful games.

You go, AJ

VA Cane

It may be what is best for both parties, tough he has 3 yrs left at about $30 mil. He is 33 close to 34, so there may need to be 34 some give and take.

I have always though of him as one of the 3 best out of UM along Irvin and Reggie Wayne. I am very surprised at him going public with views; that is a no no at any level. The press is always a bad route.

BEERicane

Garcia is the man.

Fire Morris.

SinisterCane

I hope they release Andre so he can sign and play for a winner

86Cane

UM 2, UNC 0 after 5 innings.

VA Cane

I am disappointed in the attitude of Andre Johnson. Honors heaped on him at the U, considered one of the best in the pros. He has done a lot of great things on and off the field.

Now he's crying foul in public with his problems and complaints. Crying about coaching, playoffs, career. There is nothing wrong with feeling these things. A man does not take care of his business this way. Even more troubling not coming to OTA's and workouts; thats a quitter attitude.

They say they cannot trade him because he's owed too much money. He is 33 years old, with 3 years left on his deal. I don't care how great he has been; he has!! When you have that kind of attitude I do not need you that bad. Again, he is a great player but he is not God or Jesus Christ. I worship them, not AJ.

Of course some will jump on his bandwagon and say he's earned the right to feel that way, and should say whatever. He's been paid big $ for a long time. Go on that field one time 11 on 1 big boy, see how well you do then. These people always forget this is a TEAM sport. I love his ability and he is a great player; I do not want or need that kind of attitude.

Sorry thats my opinion as a coach.

Lurker

Lurker, 400-500M for what?

Posted by: CaneRock | May 16, 2014 at 11:29 PM

For a new 55k seat football stadium with similar amenities to SLS.

Dade county prices.

A bare bones stadium might be around 300M

Not going to happen unless Santa Claus shows up.

Of course, we do have a darn good stadium now, which has been used for Super Bowls and other events, is well known, is good enough for an NFL team to use every Sunday, from which we make a profit, and which will be getting 400 million in improvements to make it a state of the art palace-like facility.

Tell me which makes more sense: that, or a bare bones MLS facility that might not even seat 40k, or a pie in the sky own-built stadium?

11-2, bottom of the 8th in game 2, UNC over UM. Can still hope, but it ain't looking good. Amazing win in game 1 though, and as already mentioned, UVa split their doubleheader today, making it a 1 game lead still even eith the split today.

CaneRock

Lurker, 400-500M for what?

No, we'll be at SLS for quit a long time, and if we start winning more, it can be a party there too. Like someone said before, remember that Oklahoma night game. Or even waving bye bye to gaytors on a hot afternoon.

Posted by: 86Cane | May 16, 2014 at 10:27 PM

You're welcome.

It's amazing the mainstream media haven't done a similar breakdown of the pros and cons of this situation, with a deep dive into the financing, and overall feasibility.

If they were to do this, they would come to the inescapable conclusion that it's basically impossible UNLESS a big daddy shows up with hundreds of millions (around 400-500M) burning a hole in his pocket.

No way we'll settle to be tenants in a mini-MLS stadium, our only chance is to come up with a good size fraction of a billion dollars (400M -500M) and the only way that happens is with one or several benefactors coming up with that. This is the only way, imo, and I don't see anyone stepping up.

No, we'll be at SLS for quit a long time, and if we start winning more, it can be a party there too. Like someone said before, remember that Oklahoma night game. Or even waving bye bye to gaytors on a hot afternoon.

86Cane

Thanks for the compliments on the article. They are MUCH appreciated. It is always best when I FEEL it, then write it.

Lurker

By the way, excellent article, and exposé of the sensationalistic "journalism" by some writers regarding the stadium.

I totally agree that 40,000 would an unacceptable situation and would basically be saying we would accept mediocrity in the future.

All I would add is that there is very little chance that if an MLS soccer stadium were built (btw MLS soccer has minor league attendance nationwide) that it would have more than 25,000 seats.

Do you think Beckham and his investors would pay up the additional millions and millions of dollars it would take to from 25,000 to 40,000? Who would pay that difference? UM? They don't have that money to spend.

Just another reason this will never happen.

Montreal-Cane

Canes will still be in first place in the ACC no matter what...

#2 Virginia 5

Suarez worst pitching performance of the year so far 6-1 UNC top of the 2nd

I can summarize my view of these rumors in one word: nonsense.

I agree so much with your article SOUP i hope the so called reporters will read it...The facts only the facts...Plus Sunlife is a great stadium when it's full...Winning will make Sunlife an even better stadium period.

Good question...

Sarasota 'cane

If you go back to my first year or so posting here I was just like some guys now... positive spin on everything, sticking up for RS and players etc etc etc.... but when you're down season in and season out and you keep hearing "Miami is back" just to lose to a nobody, etc etc... i wears you down.

Posted by: UMike | May 16, 2014 at 10:28 AM

I concur!! I met most of you on the Sun Sentinel blog around 2006 and that was my mantra at the time. I believe Soup and I supported Randy to a fault and jumped off that ship around the same time, long after many of you had already thrown in the towel.

I'm not going there again. I do not expect my HC to know everything, but I do want him to surround himself with coaches that make up for his shortcomings. Al has yet to show us that he is willing to put the team ahead of his cronies.

I'm not done supporting Al or the team for the upcoming season, but anything resembling last season should bring out the pitchforks.

And for those that think that Butch is a pipe dream to get his job back are the ones that are not being realistic. He didn't do anything that should prevent him from consideration for the UM job. If Bobby Petrino can get another look from a program he once spurned then Butch deserves one as well.

I hope things are different but I haven't seen anything that would scream 9-12 wins in 2014. What if we win 9-10 games but look inept in the process? Does Golden get another pass? I say no way. If we look crappy out of the gate then I hope we look crappy to the end so we can take the proverbial "one step back, two steps forward".

Time will tell.

These college coaches must be flooding Florida this week. My kids told me that GT,USF, & PSU have been to their practices this week.

86Cane

FROM ORLANDO SENTINEL, WHO IS HIS COACH?

There has been plenty of offseason chatter about the talent of Wekiva safety Dante Thomas and how the former Orlando Evans defensive back might be a bit under-the-radar heading into his senior season.

His level of talent was confirmed Thursday when UCF and Louisville both offered scholarships to the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder, according to Wekiva head coach Kenard Lang.

"It feels amazing because people are looking at me now," Thomas said. "I'm just going to keep going hard and hope I receive more."

Thomas has been stellar in offseason camps this year and his strength against opposing receivers is one of his biggest attributes, as well as his cover skills and quickness. He's a big hitter who can battle in traffic with the strongest of receivers and the Wekiva coaching staff is expecting big things this season.

He is one of several former Evans players who have transferred this spring and he joined teammate and lineman Tashawn Manning at Wekiva. Among others who have transferred from Evans are RB Jalen Julius and QB Woody Barrett to West Orange, RB Tyshaun Ingram to Winter Park and DB-QB Tyrek Tisdale to Oak Ridge.

Less than two months after Miami Hurricanes infielder David Thompson had surgery to remove a rib and repair a situation that caused a blood clot in his right arm, the former Miami Westminster Christian star is back in the UM lineup.

Thompson, who had six-hour surgery March 24 to address his physical ailments caused by venous thoracic outlet syndrome, was in the lineup to start at first base and hit eighth Thursday night at home against North Carolina — until the game was postponed because of torrential rain.

That game was rescheduled for 3 p.m. Friday, followed by the regularly scheduled 7:30 p.m. game at Alex Rodriguez Park.
