Courtside blog: UM 67, FIU 53 (F)

Checking in before tipoff where the Canes are about to take on FIU. I'll be here to bring you updates and thoughts throughout the game. Feel free to throw me some questions if you like.

- Jack McClinton is back in the starting lineup for the Canes alongside Brian Asbury, James Dews, Jimmy Graham and Anthony King. The Canes are sporting those nice new black uniforms for this game.
- Talk about a way to start. Canes come out and score 12 straight behind back-to-back threes by McClinton and Dews, a pair of free throws by Graham, an Asbury jumper and a Graham lay-in off a beautiful pass from King. This could get real ugly.
- Alex Galindo finally gets FIU on the on the board with a three-point basket with 15:30 to go in the half.
- Edwin Rios left the game with 11:27 to play after appearing to injure his right leg. His right quadriceps appears to be wrapped up with idea. The Canes have been having trouble protecting the ball tonight. There have been six turnovers so far.
- Rios checks back in after a timeout with 6:46 left.
- Here's an impressive stat in this one. Second chance points: UM 13, FIU 0. Miami outrebounded FIU at the break 21-14. Dwayne Collins and James Dews go in with a team-high 8 points each. McClinton and Asbury each had 6 points each.

- The Hurricanes start the second half with a 5-0 run. Have to say I've been impressed by the hsutle on the boards again for the Canes. FIU has some size. Yet, still, the Canes are beating them to many loose balls and boards.
- Miami now has its biggest lead of the game at 54-29. Collins has 12 points and seven boards and Dews has 12 points on 5 of 7 shooting. Miami has 28 points in the paint.
- Canes finished this one sloppy with lots of turnovers at the end. But we did get to see a reverse dunk from Lance Hurdle on an alley-oop at the end. It just didn't count.

Yes we get monthly traffic reports encompassing all Herald blogs and also daily reports listing that day's top five. Dave Barry's blog is far and away the most popular. The paper lists Barry, my Randon Evidence (thanks to readers like you) and Scene in the Tropics as the three most popular blogs paper-wide.

hey anonymous, afraid of your shadow?

sunsentinel's omar kelly (jun 5): "My company has done a study to figure out what makes my blog so successful in their efforts to replicate it and they determined it's because we're a community."
those were the days, my friend
we thought they'd never end -- mary hopkins

omar kelly cornered the Canes market ...

s(h)unsentinel + Miami herald + canespace = omar kelly's baby

sunsentinel's omar kelly (jun 11): "Right now there isn't a clear front-runner to take over my old job, but I'm sure you guys are being kept in mind because whoever inherits this blog will inherit The Legion." s(h)unsentinel ASSumed our loyalty ... OH REALLY

the father's day mutiny

herald's greg cote (jul 7): "The Miami Herald blog report for June indicates a fierce battle for sports-blog leadership between the Dolphins blog (29,389 page views) and our little Random Evidence thing here (29,019), with no other sports blog close."
manny navarro's blog used to labor in obscurity ...

Manny, I have no idea who this GREEN character is doing all this ranting. I've never seen his name at Canespace. Maybe he's just a mole trying to sow some ill-will. Ignore him.

AND WHO THE BLEEP IS GREEN, at Manny's blog, who was doing all this Manny and SS bashing???

Posted by: Cavaleer | August 01, 2007 at 02:16 PM

Yeh, who is that Green dude? He's an imposter.

Posted by: USAFCane | August 01, 2007 at 02:34 PM

don't know who green is either. I think he's someone we know, trying to give props to canespace. 86 said he won't post here, making it harder to find out who he is.

Posted by: miamimike01 | August 01, 2007 at 02:37 PM

Manny ... Your blog was really rocking today! 121 comments in a couple hours. But here's the question everyone wants to know: Who the heck is GREEN on your blog?

Posted by: 86Cane | September 04, 2007 at 08:29 PM

Green...you crack me up! And, U work this blog HARD!!! Who are U and why do U refuse to post at Canespace?

Posted by: Soup | August 19, 2007 at 12:21 PM

Green...U crack me up! I don't always agree with your posts or the topics U pick to talk about, but damn, U get an "A" for effort my friend!!!

U should join us Tuesday night from 8-9 PM at Canespace when Manny does his usual LIVE chat Q&A session. See ya 'round...

I think you should try and get Green to post here, an extra hundred hits an hour would put you into ESPN's league.

I'm a long-time (relatively from the start) reader, first-time writer, I used to get all my Canes information from the Herald only and a litle from the freebies that the paysites dish out (I guess I was oblivious to the Legion and the SS), but you guys are awesome. 86, Solar, Green, Aqua, and the rest of the U-Crew - U are the ones that have finally quenched my thirst for everything-Canes.

Posted by: Alpharettacane | August 07, 2007 at 05:08 PM

Green, Canespace folk, rest of the Eye on The U Crew.. just an FYI: I'm going to be out this weekend.

Posted by: Manny | August 10, 2007 at 12:26 PM

I want to boost the herald blog just to stick it to the sunsentinel. they betrayed us; they're gonna feel our wrath : )

Posted by: green | July 30, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Green...roger that! You work it here and I'll work it there and we'll bring it together whenever possible. We are gonna stomp TOS!

Posted by: 86Cane | July 30, 2007 at 10:56 AM

herald's greg cote (aug 6): "BLOG REPORT: Herald stats are in for July. We were a strong second among all sports blogs with 52,776 page views, narrowly edged by Eye on the U, with Dolphins in Depth a ways back in third."

A: Thanks to you Green, the Canespace crew and all of my new readers, pretty high up on the food chain at The Herald. I think we actually finished second only to Dave Barry's blog and Dolphins in Depth. A credit to you Canes fans. Thanks.
