Ohio Cane. Traveling from Columbus for the game on Friday. Where do I park, if I want to hit Grill 36 before the game?

The good press continues for the BB Team and Coach Larranaga – coaching matters. http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/jim-larranaga-finds-hes-still-fashionable-in-miami/2013/02/28/63505c44-81d2-11e2-a350-49866afab584_story.html

ESPN radio commented this morning on how former big time schools are not recruiting well this year – they mentioned Texas, Tennessee, USC and Miami. They commented that we had only gotten 1 of the top 20 players from Florida (they weren’t even sure of that).

Al wants this recruiting class locked and loaded by Sunday. DK had the offer, but wouldn’t commit to Barrow and the U was not willing to wait for DK’s decision until Wednesday. Who knows what the U knew, but they forced DK’s hand and Harris is now lashing out in response. DK just got his first adult lesson and Harris just realized Al is a chess grandmaster.
Duke - 2nd team All American.

From the Miami Herald – Eye on the U. A blogger’s case for Duke being first team all-ACC! “Plain and simple... DUKE GOT ROBBED of the honor he deserved. They gave it to the senior Ellington instead of the far more deserving freshman. This my friends is as close to a TRAVESTY as I have ever seen. Duke played 12 games while Ellington played 11, but this is NOT even close. NOT by a long shot. The ACC should be ashamed of itself. Actually, I think a stir should be created out of this injustice. The kid deserves his honors. GIVE IT TO HIM! Here's the evidence: DUKE JOHNSON: - Rush Yards: 957 - Yards per Carry: 6.9 yd/carry - Receiving Yards: 221 - Return Yards: 892 - All Purpose Yardage: 2,070 - Rushing TD's: 10 - Receiving TD's: 1 - Return TD's: 2 - Passing TD's: 1 - Total TD's: 14 ANDRE ELLINGTON: - Rush Yards: 959 - Yards per Carry: 5.2 yd/carry - Receiving Yards: 197 - Return Yards: 153 - All Purpose Yardage: 1,309 - Rushing TD's: 8 - Receiving TD's: 1 - Return TD's: 0 - Passing TD's: 0 - Total TD's: 9” Read more here: http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2012/11/duke-johnson-only-hurricane-named-to-all-acc-team.html#storylink=cpy

+7 and 5! The football team exceeded most of the experts’ expectations, it still fell short of the blogger’s expectations, but this is a tough crowd full of incredibly knowledgeable people. Time to hit the weight room and get stronger across both lines; we need to be able to run the ball for a score when facing first and goal and the D line needs to create pressure and stop dancing and hand wrestling. Golden has earned the right to make his own decisions; I trust he will make the right one. The future is bright – I foresee a 9-3 or 10-2 regular season next year and winning our Divison. Our final record being 11-3 or 12-2, setting us nicely for our run in 2014.

"Hiring a mutant from Philly to coach defense in a BCS league because of what he did in the MAC against teams that finished under .500 in conference play." No really, that's what it says. Posted by: orange 'n green in the vein | November 10, 2012 at 04:24 PM That is certainly one definition! I don’t think any one disagrees that our deficiencies (and there are many) on defense will need to be addressed at the end of the season. My frustration with the Offense is that they are our strength, but in key situations they are not coming through! I thought the 3rd quarter was probably our best quarter all year with the D making stops and the O milking the clock and controlling the flow of the game.

Today’s game was not about all of a sudden having a great defense. We know the body of work the defense has done over the season and they were missing 3 starters – not sure why anyone expected the defense to all of sudden be lights out better. Today’s game was about becoming bowl eligible and the defense came through in the third quarter, but we all knew it was just a matter of time. Today was about having a 3 points lead and the ball and going 3 and out. Today was about having a 5 points lead and going 3 and out again. Our strength failed to get a first down and bleed the clock and left it up to our reliable defense to make the stop. Really – what is the definition of insanity?

The offense needed to burn some time off during their last two possessions and could not get a first down!

The Good - the defense stepped up in the 2nd half The Bad - We are not tackling well and continue to drop balls The Ugly - Morris got hurt

The Canes will forever be grateful to ND for providing tonight’s opportunity. OJT is over and tonight is our coming out party on national TV. In the gridiron, our young canes are fearless, cocky, arrogant and yes, unpredictable. But just like Ali did to Liston, tonight we are shocking the world! Canes win and Tallahassee is suddenly very worried!

Stewart – youth has not fear! “It may just be me, but how is Miami (4-1) seemingly flying so far under the radar? Sure, the 'Canes got blown out by K-State, but that loss looks better now that the Wildcats are in the hunt for the Big 12 title. As an Irish fan, I'm a little worried about the game this weekend”..
