I think Miami still needs 2 more bigs for depth purposes. If Miami can compete for the ACC next year, TJ will be the ACC POTY.

Canespace rules. That is all.

The Dude,

The key is Newton. He has to develop and beat Rodriguez out to start at PG. He has elite talent that must manifest next year for the team to go to the next level...

That the Miami Hurricane Football program is unwell is (almost) universally accepted as fact. Therefore the blind spot bias you speak of would be most evident in those who can't acknowledge this fact.

To say that someone who speaks to objectively verifiable truths evidences the blind spot bias is actually the best possible example of said blind spot bias.

CoCane, thanks for your thoughtful analysis late last night about the UM basketball team.
Also, on the bright side, Coach L can now possibly add one or two new recruits.
He definitely needs to win more battles in the recruiting wars if we are going to be more competitive in the ACC (and beyond).
Let's hope for the best.
Thanks, again.

I don't see it with Newton as far as PG is concerned. I think PG skills are more innate, than acquired.

UM TRANSFERS

The University of Miami basketball team suffered a blow to its backcourt on Wednesday when backup guards Manu Lecomte and DeAndre Burnett informed the team they are transferring.

Both were believed to be seeking more playing time than what they likely would have received here.

UM is deep at point guard, with junior Angel Rodriguez and freshman Ja’Quan Newton, and that left Lecomte uncertain how much he would play next season.

Lecomte, who came to UM from Belgium, averaged 7.9 points and 1.8 assists this past season and leaves Miami having played in 71 games and started 40 of them.

Burnett, who redshirted his freshman season with a wrist injury, averaged 7.0 points and 4.2 rebounds in 28 games this past season. His departure is more surprising because he grew up in South Florida and averaged 36 points as a senior at Carol City High. But he wasn't likely to get starter's minutes if he had remained at UM.

UM's backcourt will return Rodriguez and Sheldon McClellan, as well as Newton, swingman Davon Reed and freshman James Palmer. Also, 6-foot-5 forward Anthony Lawrence, a three-star prospect from St. Pete, is enrolling later this year.

UM now has two scholarships that it can fill with high school or junior college players or transfers. Kamari Murphy, a 6-foot- 9 forward from Oklahoma State, also becomes eligible next season.

### Nice job by the UM football players, coaches and staffers on Wednesday in their annual bone-marrow donation drive; 186 people agreed to be donors, bringing the total to an impressive 729 since UM started the initiative.

Not to really gloat or anything. But I can't help but smile a lil bit when reading this story. Those of you who think we can't beat up FSU this year MAY have a blind spot.

No sports fans who've watched any sports really believes it's impossible for any team to beat any other. The opinions typically shared here are almost NEVER blind.

TheeMackJones

Perhaps the author of this brief note should LOOK in the MIRROR regarding realistic MYOPIC, FANATICAL, PAROCHIAL views and what not. Because I find it quite odd that taking the NAIVE, GULLIBLE Pollyann-ish perspective makes one a sincere, serious Miami, Florida Hurricane zealot. LOL

Because absolute, objective R-E-A-L-I-T-Y not only PROVES, but indicates that the beloved Golden has fallen SERIOUSLY short of expectations and what not!

Oh. One more thing. Miami has MAJOR losses on BOTH sides of the LOS. So I can't fathom why Cane fan SEE-r's a " 9-3 " season in '15. Seriously bUbba's. LMFAO

Whereas the objective, ASTUTE realist approach of say- TheeMackJones- probably envisions a 7-5 or 8-4 season ( I say 8-4 because I don't what to come off being NEGATIVE! lol ). And that's with ALL the optimal conditions, factors, tangibles and intangibles FAVORING the Hurricanes.

Lurker

Perhaps the author of the above post should not insult the owner of the blog and what not.

TheeMackJones

When the game tangibles/intangibles are basically EVEN-STEVEN at the ACC level of college football. COACHING tends to be the trump card time after time after time. And the beloved Golden seems to be still LEARNING after NINE seasons as a head football coach at the FBS level. Just saying. So don't shoot the messenger. LMFAO And that's one MAIN REASON why I say 7-5 or possibly 8-4.

TheeMackJones

Believe it or not. Nebraska will be a very, very, very, difficult home game for Miami. Simply because that Go Big Red head coach is relatively a BETTER overall head coach than U Know Who. Just saying.

Well said... As only u can.

TheeMackJones

What's up with Tony losing all that EXCESS body weight and what not?! LMFAO I thought that added weight by Hurricane defensive personnel would make them nasty ball players. Akin to the Hurricanes of years gone by. Or is that the days of wine and roses. LOL

Go Canes

FSU without Winston is FSU with any prior QB they've had.

Jimbo is no genius and won't have the first pick of the draft there to clean up every sloppy or lethargic game they play.

They have been decimated by early departures as well, and will absolutely be beatable this year.

Really? I thought his post was extremely disrespectful.

TheeMackJones

" Mark Cuban dislikes the current state of college basketball, saying: "The referees couldn't manage a White Castle." In 2002, Cuban didn't think refs could manage a Dairy Queen, either. " ESPN.com
***********

Mr. Cuban ' coffee ' Mark is referring to the second-half of Monday night's national championship game. A game which Wisconsin was robbed of possibly winning their 2nd NC in school history.

Thankfully Marco and I share similar viewpoints on a variety of topics. Albeit he's a winner and a billionaire. Whereas I'm a blank. A nobody. LMFAO

Oh. One more thing. Lurker, grow a THICKER skin! Otherwise, I'll start to think you're a ' wee bit SENSITIVE. ' LOL

Dude on a Pale Horse

GC,

Fisher routinely has his QBs ready to go. If anything shouldn't be a concern based on track record, it's Jimbo's QB.

Lurker... We're all friends here. We should be able to dish it out and take it without being offended.

Why is this guy being stuck up for when he is the one with the condescending remarks, GO CANES Stands up as a man and takes his lumps , but does it without the the sarcastic remarks , sometimes,lol but he brings very good info, why the double standards , aren't we suppose to give our opinions , we all cant sit around the camp fire singing kumbaya all the time.

I disagree. When you disrespect the owner so blatantly, it should not be encouraged. Otherwise, anything's fair game. Debating respectfully is a completely different thing, even if you're forceful.

I enjoy reading here as long as it's civil. Disagreements are part of what makes it lively, but this type of attack should not be encouraged. The rest of the material can rest on its merits or lack thereof.

What you say is true. Winstons come along once every decade, if that.

Yes, Jimbo will revert back to the mean, without him. A great recruiter with one or two inexplicable losses every year.

But on my way too early 2915 board (subject to change in August), I have us going 9-3, with a loss in Tallahassee. If we beat FSU up there, that would be a game changer. Assuming we've figured out a way to finish strong.

CaneRock

Jimbo was 31-10 before JW took over, don't know about you, but I'll take that.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ and a QB guru. Russell, Flynn, Ponder, Manuel & Winston. That's what, 4 first round picks out of his last 5 QBs? Plus a plethora of highly touted guys on his roster now?

I have defended Go Canes' right to have, and state, his views as well.

Lurker.... Maybe if everybody stopped taking everything so seriously we wouldn't have to worry about censoring ourselves. It's a blog about our favorite college football team for crying out loud. There need not be any victims here.

We all act like a bunch of 12 year old girls on here. So UMike thinks we will lose some games... Big deal. Some of us have issues with the coach... So what? Thee Mack Jones gets a little salty now and then... With his style of prose he can insult me all day and I'll love every second of it.

I guess I should apologize to any 12 year old girls reading this, huh.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ this logic only applies when people want it to, lol.

The only thing standing between a Hurricane football fan and total happiness the past ten years? Reality.

So a little blind spot here and there and singing Kumbaya from time to time (as somebody said above) is a prerequisite if you want some happiness in your sports life.

Here in Europe, winter seems to be over, at last. I'm off for a 3-day trip to Paris ... life could be worse LOL
I hope Canespace hasn't closed shop when I return.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I think the whole point that SOUP has ever tried to make is that even if Miami goes o-fer next year, it's not the end of the world. Go outside and play, share your experiences here and at least try to foster a positive atmosphere. As I've said before, many of us have been blogging together for a long time here and even back to the SS, so this place has actually evolved past being only a Hurricanes sports blog. For some, it doesn't serve that purpose and they don't just criticize, but disparage. And back and forth personal attacks just won't fly anymore. SOUP isn't just promoting a place to vent, he's trying to promote a lifestyle.

UMike is just his scapegoat. Lol.

Lurker

Trust me on this, Soup is very aware of Macjones posting history, going back years. I won't say anything more just to keep it positive.

CaneRock

And trust me on this...SOUP CAN READ! I'm pretty sure SOUP is literate enough to determine whether TMJ's posts are offensive or not, without your annoying dry snitchin' all the time. GOT IT?!

Lurker

Settle down there, pardner

Go Canes

Half of what the dude writes is in CAPS.

That alone should stop anyone from being annoyed at what he posts.

Everything here's been cool, suggest we blog on.

Ohio_Cane

Everyone drop the current back and forth, please. Thank U.
