I'm gonna keep on posting as long ya let me.

Yearby, Berrios, and Carter seem to be the top performers. Another day Kaaya got better.

Weird not seeing Duke and DP, makes for an exciting season as looking for replacement of fav current Canes to go along with Kaaya.

This STILL blows....

JCane

It looks like this is truly it, Soup. Sorry to see it end, but no posts for almost a whole weekend day would seem to say that's the way it.

As for the U, the lady Canes made it a game most of the way before giving way in the last 1/4 or so of the game and losing by 18 to the #3 seed Iowa Hawkeyes. Coach KM is solid and looks to keep the U competitive over the years.

Again, if done, thx again for all over the years. It has been my favorite and only U website.

CaneRock

SOUP & Spacers...my sincere apologies for the thoughtless & insensitive remarks I made the other day.

Things I like about Da'Space:

I LIKE coming on here and reading about VACane coaching His kids.

I LIKE coming on here and reading that UMike got His dream job.

I LIKE coming on here and reading about SOUP's different endeavors (Orchids,RE,writing,etc..).

I LIKE coming on here and giving WWIM $h!t about that dude that wouldn't even take Tony Parker to the hole in last year's NBAFs.

I LIKE coming on here and finding UM has fans in some of the most unexpected regions in the Country (Utah,Montana).

And I can go on & on...so as you can see, CS is bigger than UM sports to me...not just some place to have a pissin' contest to see who the biggest fan is.

Again, my sincere apologies for the thoughtless & insensitive remarks I made the other day.

The Debate Team still pisses excellence

Oh yeah, there was a football scrimmage yesterday.

For those fans of UM sports, there are a ton of young athletes putting it on the line every day. Support them all.

SOUP

Herb...I did.

JCane

I'm going to keep coming here as long as I can, but I love being in denial. I've been a Cane since childhood, prior to going to school there for 8 years.

The U still awaits the outcome between 1 and 5 seeds Richmond and ASU to see who they get in the NIT quarterfinal on Tues. So far, it's not clear. 7:40 left in that game, and the lower seed ASU is up by 3.

Terrance Sullivan

KYCANE thank U for posting this Brotha. For us that love all the teams at UM it's a pleasure to follow them and see the great times and the bad times and the emotional rollercoaster of being a fan of UM program. It's great to be a Miami Hurricane.

JCane

ASU and Richmond went to OT before the 1 seed, the Spiders, finally took care of business. We'll see the 1 vs 2 (UM) in a NIT quarterfinal on Tues.

As for U football, if the 2016 class mostly sticks, this coaching staff could end up considered anywhere from vastly improved to legendary (although it would take a few years after to know whether that word would apply) by learning from its past recruiting mistakes. Hope it happens.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Is SOUP still doing the orchid thing?

I guess we all have let our guard down and hit send before we hit think!

I know I have and I own it. I have tried to put forth ideas from my experiences on and off the field; mainly from coaching and directed at what I think is right and may work for our beloved Canes. That does not make me God or right; sorry if it appears that way. Thats me not any of you.

We had great weather here so we been putting in the time; fundamentals first as always, but I have put in some more Oregon style spread and pace; the kids love it. We do all our basic work, then drills then work on O and D. My thing this year will be teaching the ability to go from pro set to spread to wishbone to I to T....mixing it up and in the hurry. Sounds hard...it is...much to my pleasure the guys are getting it down. We have missed some formations, but rarely fumble or jump offside!

Lot of skill people this year....we are going to be very very good. I am really up for the fall; we start now!!!!

Demons

Thanks for the blog ,much appreciated , if you are leaving can we have one of the guys take it over I saw where a few people say let OHIO CANE run it I am down for that, if not thanks mr soup.

Demons

I don't know the inner workings of the blog ,if it because of guys being to harsh on what they are saying , one warning then they are done , is it a blog where you can offer an opinion? , is it a blog where you can talk about sports other than the canes on slow times, is it a blog where you can have debated opinions and not insult each other ?

Go Canes

Think it's time to open things up again.

Those who needed to understand that while this is an open forum, it's not a place to dump your garbage and personal negativity I think finally do.

UMike

Coach Al Golden surprised us all by letting us watch what was originally supposed to be a closed scrimmage Saturday.

It was the second scrimmage of spring, with the final one -- the spring game -- free and open to the public at noon next Saturday, March 28, at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale.

On a super hot and sunny day (surprise!) at Greentree Field, the Canes' offense and defense had their good and sometimes not-so-good moments.

Like Golden told us after the scrimmage, "There's no way to win as the head coach. It's just a question of watching guys getting great matchups.''

Thus, for every great play on someone's part, someone else on the other side missed making one.

Starting quarterback Brad Kaaya had an admirable effort considering he has been pretty sick with the flu all week, and still sounded kind of lousy and sickish when he spoke to us this afternoon.

Second-team quarterback Malik Rosier continues to look better and better. He runs an offense that is quicker-paced and takes advantage of his mobility and elusiveness. He can use his feet or his hands, and he throws a nice ball. He's very easy to like, as is Kaaya. Both guys are reflective and direct in answering our questions. Both are nice guys and have a nice touch on the field. Please keep in mind that UM's second-team defense is not nearly as good as its first-team defense.

Kaaya completed 12 of 19 passes for 140 yards -- a 71-yard chunk of that going to tailback Joe Yearby on a screen play.

Rosier, who stayed behind in Coral Gables instead of traveling with the baseball team to Wake Forest for an ACC road trip, took advantage of his opportunities. Rosier completed 5 of 10 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. Rosier's last two passes were TD passes to Malcolm Lewis. The first was for 26 yards and the last, for 45 yards.

"I'm kind of missing baseball,'' Rosier said, "but at the same time I'm keeping up. I heard DT [David Thompson] hit a two-run homer or a home run last night, which was great (actually, two home runs, including a grand slam), so I'm keeping up with the guys, but yeah, kind of a blessing in disguise being here and getting more time in with the ones.''

Rosier said he knew he needed to stay behind because of Kaaya's flu this past week. "When Coach [James] Coley called me and said that Brad was out, it was clear that he needed me here to run the offense 'cause it's nothing against Vinny, but he just transferred from Texas Tech so the playbook's still difficult. Vinny's getting there, but yeah, Coach Coley needed me here, which actually paid off for me in the long run.''

Together, the QBs completed 17 of 29 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns.

Lewis had a nice day, catching four passes for 89 yards and the two scores -- 15 yards, 3 yards and the two TDs.

Gus Edwards got the first carry of the scrimmage and ended with 16 carries for 85 yards.

Yearby is looking really good these days, though we expect him to put on more meat as the months pass. He ran seven times for 34 yards and a 16-yard touchdown on the scrimmage's second series, led by Rosier. His touchdown was the 71-yarder, with the defense trying its best to catch him, but to no avail.

Newcomer Vincent Testaverde, a walk-on transfer from Texas Tech, took part in two series. He threw two passes, both incompletions. But just before the scrimmage began, in 9-on-9 drills, threw a beauty of a deep pass to D'Mauri Jones near the left sideline.

Also of note: rising sophomore wide receiver Braxton Berrios made two great plays in this scrimmage before getting hurt in his midsection, apparently his ribs. Berrios' first catch was on a 56-yard screen pass from Rosier. He gracefully zigged and zagged around defenders on that one. Two plays later, Yearby rushed for his touchdown.

86, I'd be more than happy to take over the blog so that our friends (and enemies lol) here have somewhere to post and chat. I wouldn't have any (much) content to keep it very fresh like U have for so long, but if some bloggers want to contribute in the article department, I could handle it.

Let me know.

UMike

I got Ohio's back..and can try to help with articles/content when I can. If this blog is for the fans and by the fans, let those fans help supply some content when feeling the need to share. If will give Da Space a unique feel and look..not the same run of the mill info that is on all the other blogs...just a thought.

Ohio_Cane

Comment moderation is OFF. Play nice so we don't have to do that again, please.

The badgering and bickering back and forth WILL STOP. Period. Talk Canes, but do so without taking shots at each other.

ALL comments not talking/discussing Canes info will be deleted.

Also...am I allowed to call Golden whatever names I want?? haha

New SWAG16 Commit over the weekend: 2016 DE, Jaquwan Nelson from Ft. Lauderdale

CaneRock

1 on 1s from 3-19 practice...https://vimeo.com/122645842

Jenkins & Kamalu looked very impressive, the DL's hand usage overall looks very improved. And although Jones got ran over by Jackson, He has real good feet for His size...just has to clean up His technique.

I do love that the entire 2016 class are Florida kids with a high percentage coming from South Florida.

Wasn't too impressed with Darling in that video though, looks lazy.

CIS Poster:

Elite scouting services who has scouted Florida prospects for close to 15 years wrote this about Nelson a week ago on their write up for class of 2016.

14-Jaquwan Nelson-Ft Lauderdale-6’5-230-There may not be a more underrated defensive end in this year’s class. For a school that is not known for producing top end football talent, Nelson may be the best to come out of this school in the past ten years. He has size and is a good athlete. (Comparison: Ezekiel Ansah)

Go Canes

Think we are finally more talented and deeper on the D-line than we've been in years.

We better get pressure this year, we are very thin at corner.

Lurker

Let's see.

Personal attacks should not be tolerated.

Vigorous disagreement is one thing, personal attacks, including those instigated by a particular moderator, should not be tolerated.

Although I will not be a regular poster until I see more acceptance of dissenting opinions, I do hope that those with opinions that are not part of the norm of hating, are treated respectfully.

Go Canes

Good bank coming for the U and further proof the Canes belonged in the tourney.

ACC is 11-1 so far.

Okafor that plays for Duke is sick. Really skilled player.

Ohio, are you running the blog now? If so, thanks. BTW, what is going on with the Pens?

Ohio_Cane

Mr Melvin has a lot to prove to me still, IMO. I DO love that the DL look more aggressive as a unit, and technique (hand placement like CR said) also looks much improved. We'll see how they perform in Sept, Nov, etc

j.w.

The Space survives? Wow, it is a great day! Nice run by the Women's bb team, beating a good team in their home in the tourney is not easy, but they gave it their all.

Agree. Would be huge for everyone if they do develop into a good unit.

Soup, if the Space is surviving, I am going to have to actually go out and wear that green dress LOL

Dude on a Pale Horse

What a great morning here in Idaho.

VA Cane

I think a lot of aggressive pressure on D is big key. We will be better on O....and I would rather gamble and play very tough and aggressive than sit back. I think we can be more aggressive with some of the talent.
Lets go foe the throat across the board lets attack on all fronts this year.
Lets rally around this: Think before you send....I am!

We had a great day yesterday.....I think we will be tough we are in playoff mode already....most of mine work out and play hoops...in shape! Several have grown....look out league we coming hard and fast!

VfB_Cane

OK, hard to stomach that the best Canes blog is run from the Buckeye state, of all places (I can see a phantom interference call coming LOL)

Thanks Ohio for your effort to keep a good thing going!

BTW, in 12 appearances the Canes have never made it out of the quarterfinals at the NIT.
First Round 6-6
Second Round 3-2
Quarterfinals 0-3

Hopefully, the Canes rise up to the challenge and make history tonight.

It looks that way lol. I can't let it die. This is my favorite place to post, share info and talk Canes as I've been doing for the past 4-5 years or so.

Pens can't stay healthy... Hoping by playoff time that stuff ends and we get some more guys back.
