Summer thoughts

I'm still in the midst of my summer break, but I wanted to check in and say hello since it has been awhile since I've posted anything new. Although I haven't been busy reporting -- a guy needs a break (especially when no one at UM is available to talk), I have to admit I've been keeping my ears open and drumming up a few questions and thoughts of my own I'd like to find answers to when I do return.

-- For starters, I don't want to be negative, but I've got a feeling Canes fans aren't going to be happy with the  move to Dolphins Stadium once the season gets underway. I read Barry Jackson's Dolphins_stadium_uBuzz Column today which discussed what Dolphins Stadium is doing to accommodate Canes fans this season. First thought... no U at midfield? I know it seems like something petty. But I distinctly remember hearing those involved with this deal say at the time they were going to do everything in their power to make Dolphins Stadium feel like it also belong to UM. And last I remember, the OB always had the U at midfield. Secondly, I got a question for U. How are U season ticket-holders liking or disliking your new seat assignments? Did you get hosed? Or are you really satisfied?

-- Baseball coach Jim Morris made a move a few weeks ago to replace assistant Gino DiMare by promoting pitching coach J.D. Arteaga. It was a no brainer. Arteaga knows this program as good as Jim_morris_arteaga anyone and he can definitely recruit. But who is he going to add to his staff? And more importantly, how in the world is he going to start filling in the holes in his lineup next season? There is no question Miami's pitching staff will be solid with National Freshman of the Year Chris Hernandez back. But Morris has to replace plenty of other studs. Losing Adan Severino, who signed with the Twins two weeks ago, hurts. Severino was drafted in the 26th round and could have been one of those guys Morris count on. Now, the only really experienced starters back are outfielder Dave DiNatale, catcher Yasmani Grandal, shortstop Ryan Jackson and designated hitter Joey Terdoslavich. I want to hear whom Morris thinks can start next season alongside those four. There is no question there is going to have to be a lot of improvement by others in summer ball and fall ball.

-- Football players and coaches have been off limits to the media since the end of spring practice. And like you, I'm itching to find out what's happened since strength coach Andreu Swasey began Randy_shannon_action working with the guys shortly after the end of the spring. A good chunk of the other freshmen signees began training with Swasey when summer school began on June 24. Practice doesn't begin until the end of July so I won't get to talk to anyone other than coach Randy Shannon until then or if and when players are made available. But I got questions already -- aside from how the quarterbacks looked during 7-on-7 drills. I want to know who didn't do what they were supposed to do this summer. Who other than Allen Bailey got hurt and when can we really expect them back? Has Sam Shields finally gotten it? Which freshmen still really haven't gotten in to UM? Which other arriving freshmen can really be counted on this season to contribute? Which veterans are really ready to take their game to the next level? I'm sure you have plenty of questions too. Feel free to add them to my list.

As for my summer, I haven't had a chance to really get out of town. I'm spending a lot of my time off with the wife looking for a house. But I have had time to see a few movies and shows (If there are any suggestions, feel free to leave them for me)
- The best of the best summer movies for me so far has been Pixar's Wall-E. Great movie for adults or kids. I'd say it is up there with Finding Nemo and Roger Rabbit when it comes to my favorite animation films of all time.
- Wanted starring Angelina Jolie had a little bit too much of the Matrix type stunts for my taste. But Jolie was smoking hot so I give it a 6.
- I got a chance to last weekend to see the final off Broadway show of The Life of Celia Cruz at the Carnvial Center in downtown Miami. As a Cuban-American I loved every second of the music and I thought the story was very well told. I'd like to see if anyone else got a chance to check it out.

86, who comes over and views the blog, more than most, prints on his site, that I was an idiot, for posting that guy's rant and for not being a defender of Him, on the SS.... I replied, that it was not my job, to defend him, and that calling someone an idiot, on the blog, is an example, of why he is not liked on the SS.
Someone saw the exchange and posted it on the SS. He didn't like the discussion, and again, called me names... and acting CHILDLIKE, like he does...banned me from the blog...

DIC(K)TATOR

Like I said before, there U go Green, another great example.

Manny Navarro Rocks!

Green? Not so much.

GO CANES!

86 will ban you if you don't wear UM homer glasses. Lamespace is JUST that....lame. Lotsa chest pounding and hating going on over there. Very little realistic discussion about what the team will do in 08.

Haven't commented in a while. But wanted to chime in. Season ticket holder for 10years and yes, I absolutely feel like i got hosed. NOT happy with the move at all, but we'll see...i'll save my final judgement for opening day. Enjoy the vaca brother!

14-0...completely untrue. All U have to do is READ the comments on Canespace from an FSU fan today to know that is NOT true.

86, what you do over there is so far from being objective that it's laughable. Funny how all the caners over there spend more time hating on the Gators than talking UM. Clearly they/"U" have Florida on their mind. There are a few over there that seem to bring a reasoned discussion to the table. But it's mostly just,"Were duhU..you're scared of us...we'll win 10 games...blah blah blah." Miami is FAR from being out of the woods. Cane faithful thinks the glory days are back. NOT ONE expert picks you guys to do anything. But you and all your homers are completely blind to that. True homers over there. And in case you didn't know, homer is not flattering.

I own a paint Manufacturing Company and we make field marking paints and can match the green grass to cover up each of our Logos for the next game. Ask the guys at the Citrus Bowl that paint their field and have different games right after one another. Our paint dries fast also.

"Our paint dries fast also." - HurricaneTom

Duhhhh U football team has gotten so boring to watch (ref: 48-0) that their fans would rather watch paint dry.

GATORS = TITLE TOWN
DUHHH U = BORING TOWN

"ESPN to produce documentary on UM football"

NO NEWS IS NO NEWS

Per ESPN's latest, Duhhhh U ranks in the Top 10 in something for the first time in years.

Too bad it's only a rank of the 12 ACC teams and the toughest stadiums to play in. Canes unite, by borrowing the Phin's field, you beat out NC State and Duke. If you were still in the OB dump you surely would have been ranked last.

Forget attendance the entire ACC conference only averages 57,500 seats.

MUSICAL CHAIRS

1. Virginia Tech, Lane Stadium (66,233) -- This place sells out, and Hokies fans make this one of the toughest stadiums in the country. Which is why Boston College's fourth-quarter comeback in Blacksburg last season was all the more impressive.

2. Florida State, Doak S. Campbell Stadium (82,300) -- The program's history is as concrete as the structure here, and you can feel the tradition even during a weekday. With Osceola and Renegade, the war chant ... this is college football.

3. Clemson, Memorial Stadium (81,500) -- The Rock. The Hill. Death Valley. Need I say more?

4. UNC, Kenan Stadium (60,000) -- This place is just the right size, and the picturesque pine trees make this one of the nicest venues in the league. Butch Davis has an amazing view of all of it from his office.

5. Georgia Tech, Bobby Dodd Stadium (55,000) -- Roll out the Ramblin' Wreck, and this place is rockin'. It's the oldest stadium in Division I, but it's location in the heart of Atlanta and its fans make it unique.

6. Virginia, Scott Stadium (51,500) -- Despite the open press box (which I always seem to forget on the coldest of Saturdays), this place is gorgeous. The columns on the hill and the architecture make this one of my favorite fall road trips.

7. Maryland, Byrd Stadium (51,500) -- Go ahead and get Ralph Friedgen started about the lacrosse team ripping up Byrd. There have been times when it looks dustier than my bookshelves, but the renovations and suites should be an upgrade.

8. Boston College, Alumni Stadium (44,500) -- Eh. Sorry, Eagles fans, but not only don't you travel well for bowl games, but you guys can't even pack your place for FSU on prime time.

9. Wake Forest, Groves Stadium (31,500) -- With around 4,000 undergrads, it's only going to get so loud in here. Deacon Hill is unique, though, and the fans are faithful and appreciative.

10. Miami, Dolphin Stadium (75,235) -- Well, the Orange Bowl was a dump, but there were some great and historic games there. The NFL venue just won't be the same and it will take away from the college gameday feeling.

11. NC State, Carter-Finley Stadium (57,500) -- The farily new facilities here are impressive, but it lacks tradition.

12. Duke, Wallace Wade Stadium (33,941) -- In our interview earlier this week, David Cutcliffe called Wallace Wade Stadium "quaint." Not exactly the atmosphere you're looking for when you want some smashmouth football. Then again, they've got to start playing some smashmouth football.

As usual, outstanding work J. I almost spit my Count Chocula all over my monitor when I read the "watching paint dry" line. Inflatable helmet wearing cane fan acts like this is some great upgrade. New found luxury if you will. I think the truth is that they know what an embarrassment this is they just are too image conscious to admit it. I can't tell you how many times while filing through the hallowed halls of BHG after an impressive SEC win, while chanting the usual IGTBAFG, that I've LONGED for a concierge. The sad thing about the move to Dolphin warehouse is that its PERMANENT. Even cane fan is posting all over message boards about how the place completely lacks any atmosphere. Sorry cane fan, this is the worst thing to happen to your once storied PROGRAM in it's history. Enjoy those nice chairbacks though cane fan.

Moving to Dolfin Stadium....

Guys... I hate to say it but.... "It is what it is". The contract is signed and we're stuck for 25 years of coexistence with the Fins... We either accept it, if we can afford it or we protest and sit home...

I wished I could say it is a easy decision, but I can't... Do I want a Box Suite or Club Seats for 6?... I don't know and I'm still holding out... waiting... Yeah, waiting for a miracle with a winning lotto number!!! LOL

On a serious note...
For those who haven't bought their tickets, I understand, as we are in a recession and the sad part is... is that the worst, is yet to come. Miami is a tourest town and 50 percent of our economy is based upon that fact... Come September, starts the high season, but this year, we should expect allot of cancellations..., Now add in The housing gloom and the lack of construction... adds up to a disastrous year for south Florida

Hopefully, Donna will see this and make adjustments, as everybody I know is laying off employees to survive the current crunch...

DONNA, I hope you can hear me!!!

Lower the prices or give special packages at discounted rates for this year!!!


Green...
It's said, It's written... It shall be done.
Peace to U.

Cat5

I'd give anything for Miami and Notre Dame to reinvigorate their rivarly. I know ND isn't what it used to be, and Miami is a year or two away back, but those classic games in the 1980s were the highlights of my childhood and gave me bragging rights up in Pennsylvania against all these silly Damers ...

Miami is a year or two away back?

No......Miami is another coach promoted from within or two away back.

Green is really a Ogre...be scared...be very scared!!!

CANESRULE,

I DON'T PRETEND TO KNOW EVERTHING OR CLAIM TO HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS, BUT I'M WILLING TO BET THAT U DON'T HAVE A LIFE OR GIRLFRIEND! I KNOW HO-MO DOES'NT! U GUYS ARE WHAT I LIKE TO CALL QUEERDO'S. PART QUEER, PART WEIRDO!

Just want to let everyone know I am a idiot

Green I love you, is a big man to man crush. I have had fantasies about us.

Risperidone, clozapine, or paliperidone.

TAKE YOUR PICK

As for the endzones, fieldturf is the solution. For years, the Giants & Jets have shared a stadium and every week, the stadium looks like their own home stadium...with their own logos in the endzones. Basically, the endzones zip open and closed with the team logos and look great.

And yes, this would work for baseball too...just in case the Marlins do not get a stadium...

Here is a comparison of grass vs. fieldturf...anyone care to get this in the hands of the dolphins organization?

LOL...I must admit, you had me going and I had to look them up,... only to fine ONE word of THREE words in the dictionary, and that was clozapine... an antipsychotic drug, Use: to treat schizophrenia.

It occurs to me, that it's funny that you even know that word... Clozapine, Hummm ?

Schizophrenia is a severe psychiatric disorder with symptoms of emotional instability, detachment from reality, and withdrawal into the self.
It's also, an offensive (insult) term for a state characterized by contradictory or conflicting attitudes, behavior, or qualities... Hummm... well now, lets see... Likes to argue with people, constantly changes mind, impersonates people and their identities, goes to other sites just to confront others for the joy of causing chaos.... Hummm, I say no more... enjoy your freedom but look out for the nets.

Oh... and Canerule stay off me and to find another poster to play with... U don't want my stuff.

That's right...and Cat 5 knows Jewish Kung-fu..

Hey cane fans, it's me 86. Come on over to Lamespace and see the "steam" of consciousness homer krap that I throw up. It's all about DuhU and we all wear our homer goggles and inflatable "U" helmets over there. But please don't come over there if you have an opinion that doesn't bang the "U" drum or I'll ban you from my highly subjective site. I know it's poorly written and I cite many untrue numbers about hits and who posts there. Who needs facts and objectivity when WE ARE THE "U"?

Wish I could say that those evil gators losing that safety guy would help us but I can't. Marvelous will be seeing/feeling pressure that he has yet to see a single snap of in his career. Fab Bob won't have time to look down field. One pop from Brandon Spikes and this kid will be looking dump off all day. While it is a blow to the gators secondary, it's not like super Bob is going to be able to capitalize on it. Jermaine Cunninghame and Carlos Dunlap will have him very nervous. GO CANEZ

To the University Community:

We have an extraordinary history and tradition at the Orange Bowl: The players running through the smoke tunnel. “Touchdown Tommy” and his cannon. The Ring of Honor. An incredible winning streak of 58 consecutive home wins. And three of our five national championships were won on that field. I love the Orange Bowl—we all do!

As many of you are aware, the University has been working closely with the City of Miami to assess the feasibility of making much-needed renovations to the Orange Bowl. It has long been our goal to have a first-class football stadium.

The City of Miami has been a wonderful partner with us at the Orange Bowl for many years, and they understand how hard we have wrestled with a very difficult decision. Mayor Manny Diaz has been heroic in his efforts to meet our future needs. After much thought, analysis, and discussions with many, many of our trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni, and fans, we have concluded that we must move our football games to a better facility. The more than $200 million in renovations that the city has proposed would only provide basic and mostly infrastructural upgrades. A part of those funds are not in hand and may or may not be determined until after the proposed construction would be well underway. Overall, the renovations clearly would not address the long-term needs of our athletes and our fans.

The Orange Bowl chapter of our history—in which we can all take great pride—will never close, and we are confident that the legacy of Miami Hurricanes football will live on and thrive as we move to a new location. After an assessment of all options available to us, we have decided reluctantly and painfully to move to Dolphin Stadium for the 2008 season.

Dolphin Stadium is one of the premier football stadiums in the country. At our new home, our student-athletes will have the opportunity to compete in a first-class facility that plays host to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, the FedEx Orange Bowl, BCS National Championship Game, and that has been the site of recent and upcoming Super Bowls.

Our fans will experience outstanding amenities including one of the world’s largest plasma TV displays, high-definition video boards, club seating and suites, chairbacks on every stadium seat, approximately 14,000 parking spaces, and a large variety of concessions and restaurants.

The end zones will be redone so that our shared home will reflect both Miami teams’ pride. The Dolphins are actively pursuing a corporate sponsor so that by 2010 the stadium will have a neutral name.

I want to assure all members of our University community—students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, donors, friends—and the tens of thousands of fans who regularly cheer us on, that we looked exhaustively into every aspect of the choices in front of us, and that your needs figured prominently in our final decision. The quality of your experience at our games is of the utmost importance to us.

As always, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us at an e-mail address we have established for your comments: umfootball@miami.edu. If you have any further questions, please go to the Official Athletic Department Web site at hurricanesports.com or call 1-800-GO-CANES.

Thank you, and Go ’Canes!

Sincerely,

Donna E. Shalala

Just wanted to say, that this was not me posting this. If it was me I would have added that I am a moron, jerk, loser, and idiot. And yes I am annoying and like to post about my beloved Lamespace site, and my banner, the guest bloggers, and all of the useless info I post. I try to be nice and get along, but my deep feelings of lust for other men makes me angry and embarassed that I have those feelings, soon I think I am just going to act on them, and hope this inner fighting I have within my self heals.

Canesrule...Patrick Hill..

like cockroaches coming out of the woodwork ...
their unwanted presence confirms their worst fear ...
a resurgent U in a world-class facility gnaws at the grimy gaturd ...
SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE

World class facility? Good one. Dolphin warehouse is a viewing DUMP. Nice toilets and concierge though. And we get to watch replays on the jumbotron of teams like virginia hanging a 48 spot on us. All in HD. Can't wait. Calling dolphin warehouse world class is like calling DuhU a top tier team....laughable. Heck, when we pack our standard 30 thousand fans into that 72 thousand seat warehouse, well....it'll be real quiet. Nothing like empty seats to KILL the atmosphere. Doesn't matter because there is no atmosphere at dolphin warehouse.

The following is an excerpt from The 2008 Athlon Sports College Football Preview:

"Miami's football program also figures to receive a future boost with it's move this season to Dolphin Stadium from the OB, where the Hurricanes had played since 1937. DESPITE SOME IMPASSIONED PLEAS FROM TRADITIONALISTS, MIAMI IS FAR BETTER OFF BY RELOCATING UPTOWN. The move will provide the athletic department with a multi-million dollar injection that it would have not enjoyed in the OB. For a program that's had trouble making ends meet, that's no small issue.
But playing in the modern Dolphin Stadium as opposed to the antiquated OB will also help in other ways, including the continued attraction of big-time recruits. At Dolphin Stadium, players will enjoy far larger locker rooms and see themselves on giant video screens. At the OB, players were cramped together and had to watch all their replays on Sportscenter. That's a big difference for your average 17-year-old.
Which gets us back to the reason why it won't be long until Miami football reigns national prominence--the players. The ink was barely dry on the national letters of intent for the Canes' 2008 class when Wichita,Kan., RB Bryce Brown, ranked as the nation's #2 prospect in the 2009 class by scout.com, announced he was committing to Miami. With the talent being accumulated, it seems only a matter of when, not if, the Hurricanes start flexing the football muscles in the ACC and in the National Championship race.--Athlon Sports 2008 Preview

"There's also excitment around redshirt freshman Robert Marve, who broke all of Tim Tebow's high school passing records in Florida and is in line to be the Hurricanes' QB for years to come."--Athlon Sports 2008 Preview

Great site for Canes fans:

On which conferences are stronger than others:

"It's all about debates. That is what seperates this sport from any other sport at any level. It's kind of like, well, choosing a national champion without a true playoff system. The only conferences that would vote against such a system would be the conferences that already enjoy getting their foot placed in the National Championship Game by the biased of the big sports networks."

--Arizona State Head Coach Dennis Erickson

Green is like the Rodney Dangerfield of blogs. Nothing is sacred...LOL

But he gets no respect...

It was a mistake to vacate the real Orange Bowl in downtown Miami. By failing to renovate the structure and thereby losing the stadium's main tenant (the 'Canes), the City of Miami clearly demonstrated its disrespect for the 'Canes, Canes' fans, and most of all, history, tradition and cultural icons that punctuate the human experience, preserving memories that salute our origins, and all that has happened since. By tearing down such a landmark, the City of Miami showed how shallow and cheap and just plain stupid it really is.

That stadium was internationally famous. News of its being torn down was in broadcasts all over the world. It was part of Miami's history and part of what made the Hurricanes the standard to match or surpass in college football for 25 years. Unlike the 'Canes new stadium, almost in Broward County, the real Orange Bowl had character. It had class.

I was in Europe last November and stayed in a hotel that was several hundred years old, across from a church built in the 1100s.

That's because in Europe they're wise enough to understand the value of cultural icons. They don't go destroying their history just because its "financially expedient" to do so.

What's more, for all the money the 'Canes football team has generated, the university won't even build the team its own stadium. What other college or university has a football program like the University of Miami's and no football stadium?

Sometimes people show such stupidity and lack of vision that arguing is pointless; the only thing left to do is walk away.

I think the Orange Bowl committee should consider changing the name of that game to "The Unbowl."

What's more, for all the money the 'Canes football team has generated, the university won't even build the team its own stadium.

Virginia Tech's most recent upgrade of Lane Stadium would have happened without the move to the ACC; it explains much of why the school's football revenue has grown from $21 million in 2002 to an ACC-high $40 million in 2006.

Since U work for the Miami Herald let me ask you this:

1. Does the Herald have an official hotel designated and offering "special rates" for the 2008 football season?
2. Is the Herald offering R/T transportation from the hotel to games this season?
3. Is the Herald offering two FREE tix to every home game in 2008 to the bloggers here?

Go ahead, don't mumble, speak up? What's that? No, No and NO? Oh my, U better go here:
