Early football TV info; baseball; recruiting

The latest email to arrive in my inbox has the television info for four of the Canes' 2008 football games. Here's the info...

Aug. 28, Charleston Southern at Miami (ESPN 360) 7:30 p.m.
Sept. 6, Miami at Florida (ESPN) 8 p.m.
Nov. 13, Virginia Tech at Miami (ESPN) 7:30 p.m.
Nov. 20, Miami at Georgia Tech (ESPN) 7:30 p.m.

FYI... The times for the Canes' baseball Super Regional against visiting Arizona this week are as follows -- Friday, 7 p.m.; Saturday, 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, 7 p.m. (if necessary). I believe I'll be blogging live at Friday's game. Maybe I'll get a chance to speak with new athletic director Kirby Hocutt then as well.

For those of you wondering what I've been up to (aside from moving over the weekend), check out our recruiting coverage on The Herald's new Recruiting page. I wrote a feature on highly-touted Palmetto running back Jaamal Berry (who explains to us where he stands with the Canes) and American High defensive end and UM commitment Olivier Vernon. Also be sure to check out Larry Blustein's post spring football Top 25 rankings for Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. I believe the plan is to have at least one new feature up a day on our local kids. I'll also be doing features on national kids as time permits.

By the way, great story by Greg Cote today on football coach Randy Shannon's trip overseas. Check it out if you haven't already.

3 nationaly televised games for a team that finished below 500 last year is damn good.

Cane Since 1982,

Remeber we are still the "U"...even fter a 5 loss season. I think ESPN did this

FSU will also be so make that five maybe even UCF

savitza it was a 7 loss season....not 5

Thanks Manny. Getting pumped up!

The back to back Thursday night games in November aren't really news since they are always 7:30 PM ESPN games. No shock either that the Charleston game isn't televised.

The UF game being on ESPN and not CBS is surprising, but there must be some competing SEC game CBS would rather have.

Miami might have more than 3 nationally televised games. They don't usually make kickoff times and TV decisions until just a week or two in advance, unless it's something like USC vs Ohio State or Texas v OU.

Glad u went back to the easy response format Manny.

KB,

I know, my bad...I meant to put even after just a 5 win season. Thanks for the correction, though.

Wow I can post now. Props to you Manny,

Why the hell aren't the canes offering Berry. I saw him play he's a man possessed. JJ is going to graduate soon, and we need some studs.

Movin s*cks, Navarro...I hope U conned a couple friends into helpin..

Canes moving to JRS s*cks, too --

It's all relative...

Like the recruit intel, 'mano...respect.
U gettin Nat'l hits on that page yet?

NCAA might hate on the U more than they should...

But D1 ball would be a slower place w/o all our homegrown talent!!!

WHO dem CANES!

"Movin to the groovin." Hope it is as painless as possible.

Good nuggets on the recruitment page. Keep it up Manny.

Since when does us being the U help us get ESPN coverage? ESPN HATES miami. Unless of course we're #1, but even then they keep expecting us to lose

great work as always, Manny
