Congratulations Alpine! Good thing we found a team in the ACC that is a lot worse than UM. Very nice win!
Who knows? Perhaps, we can win 1/3 of of our ACC games this season?

Thanks guys... You get old enough... 😂

Anyway, it's been a great run here at Lemon Bay High in little Englewood, FL. My girls varsity tennis teams had over 300 wins, 2 undefeated seasons, 13 District titles, 8 Regional titles, and 8 straight trips to the FL State Tennis Finals, (The Elite 8), finishing 4th, and twice 5th, at the State Finals... Not bad for a little "public" school competing against many private "academy" schools.

I've retired from the classroom, but still coaching golf and tennis for the Manta Rays after 40 years!

Thanks for the blog SOUP!

Let's Go CANES!

Randy S salary a cool million a year now.


UCF defensive coordinator Randy Shannon has now earned the title as the highest-paid Group of Five assistant in the nation. The Orlando Sentinel reported on Tuesday that Shannon's annual compensation spiked from $300,000 to $1 million as of Feb. 1, a mark that puts him at No. 24 nationally on the list of college football's highest-paid assistant coaches and atop the list within the Group of Five.

On top of the bump in pay, Shannon also received a one-time retention bonus of $300,000 earlier this month, per the report. Altogether, UCF is on pace to pay its assistant more than $3.5 million dollars combined for the 2020 campaign

The Herb

He deserves it. Has been a very good DC for a long time. I think he realized, he wasn't a head coach and stuck with what he knows best. Don't like to blitz and as long as he has got some good Dee linemen, his units are solid, especially tackles.

orange 'n green in the vein

Great blob, all timer on here probably.

The feared Tuesday South Beach nightlife flu strikes again! Don't look now nemo, but the toughest schedule of all ACC members that Miami has played up to this point this year is about to lighten up for the Hurricanes. Not that it helped them at all when they played North Carolina with seven players available, but at least the non-midget freshman guards are getting their bearings now to try and finish above .500 which can only help . . .

I agree 100%. I read that Shannon was being considered for several DC jobs, so UCF is simply locking Shannon down. I think UCF now pays its DC more than we do, although I think was paid more than Shannon is now getting paid. I don't think Baker deserves to get paid a lot, but I hope Lashlee is getting paid well..

solarcane

but I hope Lashlee is getting paid well..

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | February 13, 2020 at 02:24 PM

He reads what Shannon is getting paid you can bet he will bring it to UMs attention.

Lashlee and King bring down the house, Lashlee should be compensated or he will be gone I think.

The Canes men basketball team did pull out a nice win at home against Boston College last night. Coach L is finally allowing Wong to play his game.

Another two stats that jump out at me is that the Canes had 17 assists and they out-rebounded their opponent, because to date, the Canes have been the worst in the ACC in both of those categories. The Canes also had 11 turnovers, but for the first time in a while they had more assists than turnovers.

If the Canes continue to share the ball and rebound, the Canes will win some games.

ESPN once again in spite of what some fans believe still loves Manny and Miami

Miami football ranked 23rd in the ESPN S&P+ metrics for 2020
by Alan Rubenstein2 hours ago Follow @UARuby

There has been a lot of movement from the Miami football program after the end of a disappointing 6-7, 2019 season. Based on who is returning for the Hurricanes they rank 23rd in the ESPN S&P plus metrics for 2020.
The Miami football team performed strongly in the ESPN S&P plus rankings in 2019. Finding unlikely ways to lose and a poor kicking game somehow kept the Hurricanes in the top 30 in the metric measurement despite a 6-7 season. The return of the majority of the Miami receivers and the offensive line has Miami 23rd for 2020.

The ESPN S&P Plus ratings are based on metrics that include returning production, recent recruiting and recent history. With so many new players stepping into key roles for Miami 23rd has to be considered more than fair. It is difficult to measure how quarterback D’Eriq King and defensive end Quincy Roche will play.

HerbieIbis

They make fun of us, when we flop but u got to know all those dudes would love to see the Real Rude Dudes of college football back in the limelight. They will tell u it's good for football. We just got to find a way to get there and then stay.

Lashlee to Tate and kosi

"The first thing I ever told the quarterbacks here...I’m gonna be upfront with you because that’s how I roll. We’re going to try and go out and recruit a transfer quarterback. It doesn’t mean we don’t like you. It doesn’t mean you won’t be competing.”

no bullshyt type guy,
Im digging this dude more everyday

HerbieIbis

He's telling them, u both have effed up, so in order to get u to bolt and prove to yourself u ain't the man, we're going to go get someone to show u how to play qb. Telling them with out telling them to have their bags packed. Nothing more, nothing less.

solarcane

Herb,
I'm hoping King takes Van Dyke under his wing and gets him ready to step in.
I would like to see a real Miami qb start for a couple seasons straight rather than a portal guy each year.

stupid alpine watches yet another lady canes bb game

i'm assuming you're talking about katie meier?

personally, i'm disappointed in what she's been able to get out of the team this year . . . i get that she has 5 frosh, lost 2 big pieces last year and has her premier center sitting on the bench
. . . but she also has 5 juniors, a rs junior and a redshirt sophmore; and it's the time of year where good frosh should be responding
. . . i just think they should be meshing better and showing more growth

i won't over-judge her this year, but if meier's team doesn't start wow'ing me next year, then on alpine's seating chart, she'll get the over-warmed chair that's had sun hitting it for a couple hours

Is this a real quote?? If so, wow.

alpine

this whole "pb is dead, long live pb" thing still feels weird

alpine

i liked this lashlee quote:
“When you talk about South Florida. When you talk about the University of Miami. We do have access to a lot of speed and a lot of good athletes. So why would we not make a defense defend the whole field and tackle those guys in space? Getting our guys in space allows their speed to be used to our advantage. Let their DNA take over.”

86Cane

Under the last offensive coachng regime you would have thought that "getting the ball to our guys in space" was contrary to NCAA rules and would result in a 15 yard penalty.

Appreciate the link!

The Herb's second love, Da U baseball in action tonight. Need up dates from some of you guys if u don't mind.

Was sitting here thinking about each position and had a premonition, that we will average at least 35pts a game and maybe 38, IF King stays healthy.
I have only 4 question marks:
1. Can our oh linemen open holes to be able to run.
2. Can our DT'S get a push up the middle.
3. Depth at LB and run stoppers.
4. Can our WR'S learn how to run routes to get seperation.

The sacks will be cut down by just getting rid of the ball quicker.
Can't have injuries at DT. Will be super young if that happens.
All correctable things with better coaching.

Expect a rainout Herb. I'm about three miles from the U and it's been raining here for hours with no end in sight.

HerbieIbis

Been raining here in N.C. on and off for 2 weeks but today the sun finally blazed. Sunny and cool and rainy and warm here.

Rumor only but If Tua gets drafted by the Fins, his bro might be portal bound and then to DA U. Just a rumor.
Wherever his Tua gets drafted the dude will probably transfer close. That family is more than close knit.

Really, REALLY love the use of music, cinematography, and editing in this film... just OUTSTANDING, and highly UNDERrated! Any Spacers out there who have NOT YET seen "Baby Driver," or haven't REWATCHED IT for some of the many incredible details, need to treat themselves!

Pitching is always ahead of hitting this time of year! Hitting is about timing so as the season goes on the hitting gets stronger!
Win the tough pitching duels and then when the hitting starts (and it will) we should be in good shape!

Congrats Roach.....saved the pic as desktop background!!! Awesome.....

BigWindyCane1

Tua’s brother, Taulia Tagovailoa, isn’t Tua, but he may be better than anything we have on our roster. Alabama QB Mac Jones is probably the starter at Alabama next season. Jones played at Jacksonville Bolles, and I saw him attend a couple of Canes home games with his dad unofficially. His dad chatted with CMR and JR, but he chose the Tide.

Some people think Bryce Young can come in and beat out Jones. Not sure if a true freshman can do that.

If Tua’s little brother comes here, he may have to sit out a year and only have one year of eligibility. He isn’t as good as King, but he may be better than Perry and Tate. Not sure if he is worth it

BigWindyCane1

Canes men basketball team beat Wake today at home. The Canes, who are last in the ACC in rebounding, outrebounded Wake. The Canes also had more assists and fewer turnovers than normal.

Coach L switched his lineup a little, and that may have helped

Just read where King lost his father. Prayers out to him and his family.

solarcane


D King


“You instilled confidence in me,” King wrote. “You taught me everything I know about the game. You brought the dog out of me when I was four years old! You always had my back through anything. I could always count on you to hold me down! The way you love your family and your will do anything for us was second to none. The way you loved my mom showed me what pure love was. I looked up to you. I never wanted to let you down. I got to spend 22 years with you and I want to thank you for being there every step of the way! Love you forever. I promise to make you proud for the rest of my life! I got us!”

King showed flashes of brilliance in college while with the Cougars. Now with the Hurricanes, he is in a quarterback battle.

BigWindyCane1

After everything King has gone through with the passing of his father, I am definitely pulling for King to have a great season

JCane

Canes take weather delayed game started yesterday 8-2, and are up in game 3, 5-0, so far. Here's hoping for a great season. They have opened with Rutgers many times, including scoring 35 in the 3 game set last year.

AeroCane

That’s great JC
As I said before, no concern for hitting this early in the season. Keep up the excellent pitching and the hitting will catch up
