WHOA !!

A Miami Hurricane National Champion without a jock strap getting some recognition???

roachcane77

Go TENNIS! (Gotta love it!) I watched our girls team play this year in Ft. Myers at FGCU... A great squad! Stela is a total grinder out there!
Let's Go CANES!

nemo2002

Congratulations!!!

No regional for U?

JCane

Nope. As I had feared, the U needed that win over UNC to guarantee the regional. UNC leapfrogged the U by way of a better record vs. the U and winning a few extra games in the tournament. The U will likely be one of, if not the highest, 2 seed, and should go to a site with one of the lowest seeded 1 seeds that isn't an ACC school. I'm seeing best guesses as WVU or LSU.

NativeCane

STELLA!
Way to go girl!

86Cane

I'm seeing best guesses as WVU or LSU.

I saw the same predictions.

JCane

Hey 86.These two schools had the worst records of the 16 and should be the lowest seeds, which places the highest 2 seeds with them, excluding same conference schools that can't play at these sites.

Terrance Sullivan

So we play Central Michigan at 8pm Friday on Watch ESPN app in the Mississippi State Regional.

86Cane

Didn't see that coming.

JCane

Agreed, 86. MSU is the #6 overall seed. This means the Canes would be considered around #27, excluding challenges of avoiding scheduling conference opponents. This isn't an easy draw at all. Losing a few games late in the season and blowing the 5 run lead to UNC hurt, and the program isn't quite at a prestigious place again. Winning this regional wouldn't hurt though...

The Miami football team had nine players named as preseason All-ACC by Athlon Sports earlier this month. As expected the Hurricanes defensive dominated the list.

solarcane

Five Miami football players were named first-team preseason All-ACC by Athlon Sports. Four came from the Hurricanes defense and tight end Brevin Jordan was also named preseason all-ACC by the iconic annual.

Defensive end Jonathan Garvin, linebackers Shaq Quarterman and Michael Pinckney and cornerback Trajan Bandy were named first-team preseason all-ACC defense by Athlon. Quarterman was named first-team All-ACC in 2018, Bandy third-team and Pinckney honorable mention.

I agree 100%. These Canes have earned and deserve preseason first team All ACC. IMO, a few more will make it onto the mid-season and post-season All ACC lists. If the Canes do actually end the post-season with five first team All ACC picks, then history shows that the Canes will have a successful season.

Lindy's has the Canes ranked in the top 25, and has Shaq as a preseason all american.

Go Canes!!

Herbieibis

24-20, DA U for a way early prediction.

Harry Miller

I believe the U will win.

Native

I believe Harry!

Are U flying out for this one?

86Cane

Terrance and others...one week before the game please check for UM-UF game tickets on all of the secondary market sites to see if the price goes down at all. If not we can meet at a sports bar to watch the game.

Terrance Sullivan

Soupster I am not making the trip to Orlando for the Throwdown in O-Town. But I will check secondary market for ticket prices for the Canespace Fam.

Harry Miller

Native, if we can get a decent price on Tickets I will come down. I learned a lesson in Texas.

86Cane

I learned a lesson in Texas.

Posted by: Harry Miller | May 29, 2019 at 05:10 PM

Didn't we all.

A big Texas sized lesson at that.

Old Skool

NFL owners are reportedly seeking an 18 game season. To achieve that, they may pare down the pre-season. And if that doesn't fly with the NFLPA, they may expand the number of playoff games to 14.

Remember when this kid committed I said I thought he was going to play baseball not football?

Miami QB commit Tyler Van Dyke named

Pitcher of the Year. He went 6-0 with a 1.08 ERA while also hitting .360 for the league champs.

Are you saying that he might be a higher-rated Dan Steagall and skip directly to MLB?

Posted by: Harry Miller | May 29, 2019 at 05:10 PM

My wife talked me out of going last year. And given the cost involved and the resulting score, in retrospect it was the right choice.

Although had I gone, I'd like to think that we would have won. Miami has never lost a football, basketball, or baseball game that I attended.

86Cane

IT WAS ALL TONY'S FAULT!!!

86Cane

Worst part is now you gotta pay us back for all the money we spent going to that loser of a game. LO

Go Canes!!

I'll be at the game.

Got my six the moment they came up for sale for season ticket holders.

Every single big game played at a neutral sight leaves about half the fans frustrated and upset. But the next time there's a game, they're ready to go, counting down the days.

Some of you need to tighten up your crying, put on your big boy pants and start getting ready for football season.

NativeCane

That's the attitude I like GC, just shake it off and Cane On.

Tony that's a pretty good record, I think Maria had never attended a losing game until me and Becky joined her and Tom in Tally a few years ago.

solarcane

I been to losing Cane games

Herbieibis

First 3 Canes games I saw, 2 football and a baseball game they lost them all. Came down in 2004 for my only visit to the OB, against FSU and we threw a pick with about 2:40 to go in the game, my chick was sick as a dog so We left to go to the car, which was like a half a mile away in little Havana and I heard this big roar. I asked a dude in a car what that was, he said Gore had scored. I dumped her back at the car and ran back to the stadium to watch OT and the azz holes wouldn't let me in. Even though we ended up winning I didn't see it, so I was still oh for 3.

NativeCane

I feel ya Herbie, Dallas was my last game but I'm pulling on my big boy draws and Caneing on.

NativeCane

Meanwhile your Miami hurricanes are playing the Central Michigan Chippewas in the Starkville regional opening round.

NativeCane

4-1 Miami leads bottom of 4th.

JCane

Very frustrating so far, blowing a nice lead for the 2nd straight game. Down 5-4, but still have a few more innings to try to get some O going and hopefully stop the scoring. 2 HRs brought in all of the U runs so far, still O living and dying by the long ball.

JCane

Del Castillo with 2nd HR of the night ties things up in the 7th.

Terrance Sullivan

Ugh our Canes Baseball Team keep us with high anxiety SMH.

JCane

B8, Amditis Ks, Rivera double into right center, Lala 0-2 count...K on 2-2 count. 2 out, standing runners all night, Vilar up, 2-0 count, 3-0 count, walked him, 2 runners on with Zamora up on a this far hitless night...lazy fly to 9th, 3 down, tied at 5 and heading to the 9th

JCane

T9, opening single, sac bunt, flyout to right...2 down, runner on 2nd for CMU. Federman still on the mound since the 8th. Single up the middle, CMU scores, 6-5, runner to 2nd on the throw home

JCane

K, B9, Del Castillo with 2HRs and 4 RBI coming up to lead off

JCane

Only 8 hits for the U in 8 innings, with 3 HRs.quick 2 strikes, 1st out. Gil up, strike 1, hits him, runner on 1st...Escala pinch running...Chad crosbie ph for Gates who was 0 for 3 tonight. 1-2 count. K, 2 down, last chance with Toral up. 2-0 count, chased one,2-1. 3-1. 3-2 on a big cut. Foul, do again, popped up to left, game over, canes go down, have to play Southern tomorrow early afternoon in the lower bracket, the first ACC team to lose in regional play. Ugh

JCane

Loser not lower

Herbieibis

Choked again.

JCane

T5, 6-0, the U, Toral just hit a 2 run single, 4RBI so far, and runners are on the corners. Hoping CMU and MSU have a 20 inning game tonight and burn out each others' pitching staffs...

JCane

Rivera with the 3 run triple, now 9-0.

JCane

11-0....

JCane

12-0 after 5, 6 innings now done, same score, SU got its 2nd hit of the game, UM has backups playing all over and getting some BP in, and MacKendry was taken out after a pretty low pitch total, giving him the likelihood of still having some innings in that arm should the Canes still be playing on Monday. Still, when having to win 4 in a row over a few days, an easy first game gives them a fighting chance as no pitchers higher in the order have to he used today. Trivia of the day; Canes now hold the NCAA record for most post season 10 or more run games at 75.

Alex D

What's good Legion/Canespace? I guess the State of Miami just added another football program. Last year it was St. Thomas University, previous year it was Keiser University and now it's Florida Memorial Univ. So, who is next? Barry Univ, Johnson and Wales, Florida National Univ? etc. I'm going to try and make it down for a game this year. I'm working on bringing a 6 pack of abs and 10% body fat to South Beach. Enjoy your weekend.

JCane

Canes Win. 12-2, with a bit of a rally in the 9th by SU on a couple hits/walks. Cook closed it out eventually. Tomorrow the U plays the loser of tonight's game.

Mark from Atl

Canespace brotherhood!

I wanted to say hey and best wishes to everyone as I haven’t been on in a while
No excuse
This is family!
This is what’s so f’ing beautiful about being a Cane!

That being said
I had an accident with my table saw the other day...the ER was stunned...this mfers blood is orange and green!

Thanks to everyone on here for just constantly bringing me closer to my Canes and closer to home
God bless you and your family
Mark

solarcane

We miss you Mark, you are always a class guy. Get well

JCane

Hope the injury wasn't too bad, Mark.

Canes play CMU again tomorrow afternoon after MSU takes CMU 7-2. Win will give the U MSU, and will need to beat them twice.

nemo2002

A four game win streak would be epic!

Mark from Atl

Thanks solar & Jcane
41 stitches to my left hand- of course I’m a southpaw!
But could have been worse - always something to be thankful for right?

Puts my honey do list on back order for a while

8/24 here’s to hoping we all see “take no prisoners “ for 60 minutes!

God bless you and your family and Go Canes!!!

JCane

If just lots of stitches but no nerve damage and all parts are still attached, I guess it is the best case scenario, Mark.

3 PM start for the game vs. CMU and a shot at playing MSU.

JCane

Top 3rd, 2HRs and a 3-0 lead for the U, now bottom half of 3rd for the Chippewas. I obviously don't trust the lead yet.

JCane

8-0, t4th. Getting more comfortable.

solarcane

Congratulations to my grand daughter Addison Blair and the South Caldwell Hudson NC Ladies Softball State Champions!
Way to go Addie!

NativeCane

Wow explosion in an aluminum bat factory...11-2, bottom of 5th.

Get well soon Mark!

NativeCane

Congratulations Solar and Addison... Been telling my little softball princess Maddie about Addie, also showed her the video.

NativeCane

Del Castillo blasts another Homer....2 run variety 14-2.

Someone needs to put up Twitter link of Del Castillo HR ball he crushed last night, apparently he knocked a hunk out of the ball.

JCane

Hey Native:

Six HRs in this 17-3 game in the 8. Van Belle with a solid outing protecting the pitching staff for the second straight game, 76th postseason game with 10 or more runs, Most starters have been out since the 6th with a 9pm game tonight.

Another thought...the other side of this super bracket has the 3 seed, Fresno State, in the winner bracket, with the 1 seed Stanford having to win 2 just like the U, winning handily in their afternoon game. Getting ahead of myself in thinking there could still be a shot at hosting a super regional. Let's just win tonight...

Congrats, Solar.

NativeCane

Game over Canes 18-3

Mississippi tonight 9 ET

NativeCane

I'll miss the end of tonights game J Cane got 4:30 am wake up.

Herbieibis

Dam Solar, you are almost in my backyard. I live in Gastonia. Congrats to her for bringing home the ship to the western side of the state. My high school team, Shelby, has won 5 of the last 6 state titles in 2A or 2AA.

Herbieibis

Those titles would be in football.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: solarcane | June 02, 2019 at 04:33 PM


Tremendous job by Addison!! Congratulations grandpa, you must have been beaming as they won it all!

CaneSince1982

Hey Baseball followers, thank you. I wish I could be more active here. But that’s thank you for the updates to help me keep contact with what is happywith our Canes.

I’ve been reading about certain readers gripes about certain other readers on here but who the f cares: we’re Canes. We will SOON we will be us. We will be Fing Canea

JCane

Canes pitching slade cecconi (apologies for misspelling), freshman, keeping options open for tomorrow potentially, although MacKendry only threw 37 pitches yesterday. 1st inning done and scoreless.

6 am wakeup makes late games tough, let alone 4:30, Native. Have a good one.

JCane

The freshman is looking good so far. To B2 we go, with the U being the home team tonight. 3 K so far for him. Hope he has a lot of gas left...

JCane

Gil with a deep solo shot to center in b2 gives a 1-0 lead. Top 3, 3 up, 3 down, 2 more K. B3 we go for the U.

JCane

B3, Plumlee finding a groove on the mound for MSU. Clearly the home crowd is loud. 2 down, top of order with Lala up. 123 for the U on O. Best pitcher they've seen so far. May need some more long ball, as they have all year, and a good game from their own pitcher. Twice through the order usually tells the O a lot.T4 coming

JCane

Leadoff dinker to pitcher beaten out, Double following it. Runners for MSU on 2nd and 3rd. Cecconi needs to settle quickly, giving up his first two hits of the game. Up the middle, no play. Tied at 1, runners on the corners, still no outs.

NativeCane

Apparently these Mississippi State fans like to make that jerking each other motion thing.

86Cane

MIAMI BASEBALL FANS:

Thanks for all the updates. Been busy lately. New job. Details when it matters. Now, back to UM baseball!

JCane

Line drive to Zamora at ss. One out. Fly to deep right center...caught, but runner tags. 2-1, but could have been worse
2 down. Pitch to backstop, runner to 2nd. Single up the middle, 3-1. Gotta start warming up another pitcher. Long inning. Single to right, 5th hit of the inning, on the corners, place is loud. Now there is bullpen activity. At least the pen is rested, but can't let it get out of control. To Zamora...3 outs.

B4, need some O. Would be nice to see Zamora's bat come to life again after showing little so far in the regional.

JCane

Zamora gets a hit, but inning is over. To 5th down 3-1.

JCane

Canes get to B5 still 3-1. Gates is stuck at first, 3 down. T6 we go

JCane

B6, Rivera and lala are on the corners, no outs.

JCane

Bases full of Canes, no outs..

JCane

Zamora hits into DP, although now 3-2.

JCane

T7, golden opportunity wasted.

solarcane

Turn out for Lady Spartan 2019 State Champions return home awesome! Police escort, fire trucks, students going nuts. This is what amateur sports is call about.

https://m.facebook.com/home.php?_rdr

JCane

B7 leadoff runner wasted. To 8th still 3-2.

JCane

Where are coming off. Federman pitching, 3 straight hits, 2 runs in, 5-2.

JCane

Wheels...

nemo2002

We're dead.
MSU scored two more runs. Still no outs!

JCane

Veliz comes in, inning done. 6 outs left for the O

JCane

Bases loaded, 1 out, del Castillo coming up...rally caps...

Nope. DP, inning killed...

JCane

B9 coming, still 5-2. Nice job by Veliz, runner stranded at 3rd after steal and bad throw.

JCane

Gil on 1st after review changes call. Lead batter on. 123 from there. Season over. Story of game was bases loaded twice, hit into DP both times. Night all.

Native

Thanks for game call JCane.

Hate to see the season end like that but glad there was improvement on the team....You just wait til next year LOL.....

86Cane

Thanks JCane. Much improvement ths year. Hopefully continues to next. #GoCanes

Terrance Sullivan

I will Third what Native and Soupster said.

solarcane

Once again Canes baseball rips JCane and Native's hearts out and stomp on it.
