This ad is misleading as if they're the one investing 400 million into the stadium.
Posted by: SinisterCane | May 17, 2015 at 06:36 PM

That's not what they're saying, and no one thinks they're actually trying to fool anyone.

If the university actually thought they had intentionally misled anyone, they would have pulled the ad and issued an apology. It still runs to this day.

The only criticism I would have of the ad is that it gives people that are intent on attacking the university, like gators, noles, and others, false ammunition. But that would be nitpicking on my part.

Go Canes

The whole argument about the school taking credit for the reno is ridiculous.

Trying to do that would be as dumb as Al Gore claiming they invented the Internet.

There's no intent there and anyone claiming otherwise is grasping at ways to criticize.

No flame we disagree and that's fine enjoy the rest of your Sunday

I don't see it guys. Honestly, wtf does Miami care on WHO invested the money? There is zero incentive to claim that they invested the money. I think they are showing how much money has been invested in the future, noy how much money THEY'VE invested in the future. I mean, even the locker rooms (The Rock) and the Meeting Room (Jon Vilma) and the nutrition table were all investments by other people. I think it's really nitpicking to go after Miami on this. I don't think they are trying to mislead anyone, again, there's no reason to.

If you think somebody is dead wrong, say so. But avoid comments about somebody as a person, unless it's something good.

I agree with this 100%.

Trying to do that would be as dumb as Al Gore claiming they invented the Internet.

OK, I call total BS!

Everyone knows that CANESPACE created the Internet. That is not even in question is it???

The Dude

And Al Gore never actually claimed to have invented the internet, only that he was instrumental in fostering an environment in which the internet could grow and develop. It's something he really should have pushed harder.

http://www.snopes.com/quotes/internet.asp

Lurker

That was still a grandiose claim, dude.

"During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

He actually said that.

While not technically saying he himself created the Internet, he is giving himself credit for being a leading force in actually creating the Internet. That's close. If he had said that to me in an interview, I would have immediately disqualified him for being intentionally misleading, for taking credit for something that he had no role in creating.

It would be like Miami saying they took the initiate in and were the driving force in getting Stephen Ross to make $400 million improvements to the stadium, rather than their current position of saying the program is the beneficiary of that $400 m investment.

If you read the history on the development of the Internet, it goes back several decades, and Al Gore had nothing to do with that or in creating an environment that facilitated the growth and/or development of the Internet.

You or I were at least as instrumental at developing the Internet when we got our first Compuserve accounts...and if you don't know what is, then you're in your 20's.

By the way, this isn't political, because politicians of all stripes lie, it's just that he got called out on his outrageous bullsh*t.

86Cane

I don't care what ANYONE says, it was CANESPACE that created the Internet. And that's a fact Jack!

ACC Baseball Championship, 1 p.m. (ESPN2)

86Cane

Miami’s men’s team finished 11th with 36 points and had several noteworthy performances on Saturday.

Artie Burns finished second in the men’s 110m hurdles with a time of 13.70 seconds, while Christian Cook placed fourth with a time of 14.05 seconds. The duo picked up 13 points for the Hurricane men.

“When I first go there I was pretty nervous,” Burns said. “I hadn’t run in an outdoor meet since my senior year of high school in 2012, but I think I did well. It means a lot to score for my team. I feel like I could have won, but I am moving on to regionals so I have another chance to go out there and win.”

Miami’s men’s 4x100m relay team of Artie Burns, Josh Johnson, Robert Grant and Christian Cook combined to finish third with a time of 40.31 seconds and score six points for the Hurricane men.

86Cane

The University of Miami track and field program had a Top 3 finish for the second consecutive year at the ACC Outdoor Championships.

Miami’s women placed third with 93 points at the 2015 ACC Outdoor Championships, following up last year’s third place finish with another strong showing at the conference meet.

The Hurricane women were led by sophomore Shakima Wimbley. The talented sprinter accounted for 22.5 of Miami’s 93 points and was named the women’s track MVP.

"It's one of the best feelings in the world," Wimbley said. "Coach Deem put me in four events and she had confidence in me to handle it so I did and the rest followed."

Wimbley won the women’s 400m with a personal-best time of 50.84 seconds that ranks fourth in the world. Wimbley’s time also tied the facility record, set a new ACC record and improved on her UM record by nearly a full second. Wimbley earned a gold medal, scored 10 points for Miami’s women and posted the fastest 400m time in the country.

The sophomore also ran the seventh-fastest 200m time in the world, 22.43 seconds, to set an ACC record and a facility record while earning a gold medal. Wimbley also broke the UM record of 22.46 set by Lauryn Williams in 2004.

In a press conference on Monday morning,, Louisiana Tech Athletics Director Tommy McClelland introduced former University of Miami assistant coach Eric Konkol as the new head coach of Bulldog Basketball.

"I could not be more excited to be the men's basketball coach at Louisiana Tech University," Konkol said. "A standard of excellence is growing here at Louisiana Tech. It is a direct result of the collective commitment by past and current administrators, coaches and players. Our goal is to keep pushing forward and continue to challenge for Conference USA championships and trips to the NCAA Tournament. I would like to thank Dr. Guice, Tommy McClelland, the search committee, Dr. Donna Thomas and the athletics council and the entire community of Ruston for welcoming me and my family to Louisiana Tech."

Konkol goes to Ruston having spent the past four seasons on the Miami staff. Prior to that, he was with Jim Larrañaga for seven years at George Mason and has assisted in all aspects including recruiting, practices, individual player workouts and game preparation.

"Eric Konkol is one of the brightest young coaches in the college game," said Miami Coach Jim Larrañaga. "His intelligence, energy, enthusiasm and commitment to academics are at the highest level. His knowledge of the game, his ability to recruit outstanding student athletes, and his ability to communicate with those players will make him highly successful as a head coach. The players at Louisiana Tech are going to love this guy, just like our Miami players did."

The announcement of the 18th head coach in program history comes 11 days after the job became open with former LA Tech coach Michael White accepting the same position at the University of Florida.

"Eric has a national reputation as a great recruiter, a rising star and a coach with a highly intelligent basketball mind," McClelland said. "We are grateful to have him lead our men's basketball program. Coach Konkol represents our philosophy of developing champions in the classroom, on the court and in life."

Eight From @CanesBaseball Named All-ACC

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The University of Miami led all programs with eight individuals selected to the 2015 All-ACC baseball teams, as announced Monday by the conference office.

The Hurricanes, who finished with the best overall record of any ACC team at 42-13 and will be the No. 2 seed at the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship beginning this week, had three first-team selections, one second-team selection and four third-team selections.

Junior third baseman David Thompson, sophomore catcher / designated hitter Zack Collins and second baseman George Iskenderian were among those recognized with first-team honors.

Thompson, the nation’s RBI leader with 78, led the ACC in home runs (19) and was named one of 35 semifinalists for the Dick Howser Trophy. Collins, a catalyst for Miami’s current 12-game winning streak, finished the season batting .310 with 14 home runs and 60 RBI, the second-most in the ACC. Iskenderian took home the ACC’s regular season batting title in his first year with the Hurricanes, finishing with a .391 average and starting all 55 games.

Junior lefthander Thomas Woodrey, who anchored Miami’s rotation with a 6-2 record and a 2.62 ERA, was the lone second-team selection.

Sophomore outfielder Willie Abreu, closer Bryan Garcia, senior catcher Garrett Kennedy and redshirt junior lefthander Andrew Suarez were named to the All-ACC Third Team. Abreu hit .297 in his second season as a starter, Garcia ranked fourth in the ACC with nine saves, Kennedy broke out with a .361 season batting average, while Suarez finished with a 7-1 record and a 2.95 ERA.

Miami opens the 2015 ACC Baseball Championship Wednesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park against the winner of a play-in game between No. 7 seed Virginia and No. 10 seed Georgia Tech. The game, slated for broadcast on RSN/ESPN3, 560 WQAM and WVUM 90.5 FM, is set for 3 p.m.

Chargers' Denzel Perryman: 'I can't wait to play the Dolphins'

Denzel Perryman is in a strange land.

After growing up in Miami and playing high school football in the city, Perryman chose to stay close to home and attend the University of Miami.

Those days are a thing of the past now after the San Diego Chargers made the linebacker a second-round pick in this year's draft. He's moved clear across the country, but has a very important date in December marked on his calendar when a certain opponent will visit San Diego.

"I can't wait to play the Dolphins," Perryman told Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego. "December 20. I've already got it circled on my schedule. It's the hometown team, and it's one of the teams that passed me up."

Perryman seemed to believe the Dolphins planned to draft him and appears upset things didn't pan out.

"They were talking to me, telling me all this good stuff," Perryman said. "We're all grown. You can tell me you're going to take me or not. Don't sugar coat with me. It is what it is. But Dec. 20, it's on and popping. Every other week, too."

With or without a chip on his shoulder, Perryman is a talented player. Still, a little extra motivation never hurts.

UM Surpasses $1.6 Billion M2 Campaign Goal

It is with deep gratitude and appreciation that I share with you some very special news. The University of Miami has received a "breakthrough" gift of $55 million from the Miller family, one of Miami's most distinguished and civically engaged families.

Stuart A. Miller, chair of the University of Miami's Board of Trustees, has just announced that his family will provide $50 million to build a new state-of-the-art medical education building on the campus of the Miller School of Medicine and $5 million to support the Frost School of Music.

On behalf of our entire community, I extend our heartfelt thanks to the Miller family for their outstanding philanthropic leadership and investment in the mission of the University of Miami.

This momentous commitment has officially lifted our $1.6 billion Momentum2: The Breakthrough Campaign for the University of Miami over the goal for a total of $1,618,034,779. This overall achievement was reached more than a year ahead of schedule — an amazing tribute to the generosity of each and every one of the nearly 138,000 donors who made this possible. The success of this campaign follows the first Momentum campaign, which raised over $1.4 billion.

During the tenure of UM President Donna E. Shalala, who is stepping down at the end of this month, the two Momentum campaigns have raised an unprecedented $3 billion for the University — resulting in increased student scholarships, endowed chairs and professorships, innovative programs, and a transformation of our campuses. Read more here.

Our two Momentum campaigns have truly been "Powered by YOUR Philanthropy," and we thank you!

Warm regards,

Sergio M. Gonzalez
Senior Vice President, University Advancement and External Affairs
