Hurricanes' women's tennis continues to flourish as coaches, freshman win ITA awards

The UM women's tennis team, ranked sixth in the nation, will meet No. 11 Northwestern at 6 p.m. Friday in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA National Championships in Urbana, Ill.

It's the eighth consecutive season that the Canes have advanced to the Round of 16.

On Tuesday, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its regional award winners, and UM coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews -- already inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame -- earned Coach of the Year for the Southeast Region.

Hurricanes assistant Alex Santos earned Assistant Coach of the Year for the Southeast Region.

And freshman Stephanie Wagner, UM's No. 1 player, earned Rookie of the Year.

All three will be eligible for the same awards on the national level.

Yaroshuk-Tews' teams are always top-notch, and this one is no different. What's especially gratifying is that all eight players will return next season.

"If we don't get to the final 16 I'm not happy,'' Yaroshuk-Tews said Tuesday. "I make that known with my staff. ...To get to the Sweet 16 is tough and it's grueling, but with this talent, this is where they should be.''

The coach said her players' goal at the beginning of the season was to get at least to the semifinal of this year's nationals. Last year they lost to Florida in the quarters.

WOO HOO IT'S WOMEN'S TENNIS SEASON !!!

Go Cane Split-Tail T-Ballers !!!

By: Barry Jackson

Analyst Tom Lemming on UM’s new oral commitment, quarterback Brad Kaaya: “Good arm strength, poise, leadership, good size [6-4]. Very good prospect. USC and UCLA were looking at him."

I guess Gallo knows more about this than Tom Lemming. This is probably even more the case where Gallo the Pig has not watched any film or know anything really about coaching or potential.

He does do being an idiot well. And making lists. And being a blog Pig in general.

nobody wants brad kaaya....QB's are not usually available at this point.....

Alin will become kirkland 2013.....don't come any local than that....college football requires running ability...end of story......pro-style QB in NCAA doesn't make for the most part.....

just ask denard robinson (michigan), johnny manziel (texas am), collin klein (ksu) or braxton miller (ohio state).....plus golden/coley said to Alin thats what they were looking for.....

as a parent I say...fu...ck both of them.....my son is playing QB.....Louisville here we come

when it come to UM football...ya i think i do know more....


Louisville here we come.

Good....don't let the door hit you in the a$$.

A QB from CALIFORNIA???

Lmao. Grasping at straws.

Will Grier is everything you could want. Sorry Charlie. []_[] lose

Women's Tennis
Finally a sport the canes are good in.
Thank God for the cane women
All excited about a 2014 QB oral commit
Typical desperate cane fan grasping at straws for any positive news
What really counts is now
Now you have the #117 defense coming back with a bunch of missing players from last years pathetic team
Pathetic defense lost several of it's best players
Tell me again how is the gonna make them better?

How many QB's do we need. What going on here? I though we needed d linemen. Looks like this the last year he can use Randy Q B recruit. Better learn how to judge Q B Talent real fast. Seems odd to me to have this many Q B signings.

to think that the Pig Gallo could be making $2 mil or more at any of 100 D-I schools as football coach.

Instead, he thinks a better use of his time is trolling this blog at all hours making lists of 18 year old boys and predictions of how they will play.

Hmm, seems reasonable to me, no you idiot maggot Gallo?

Gaytor puke talking trash about QBS?

Who is your QB gator boy? Driskle? idk- he may be signed by Warner Brothers in their new remake of Deliverance- since he has the low set pointy ears and such, he could play the banjo boy's big bro.

Trey Burton?
Who?
are they bringing Chris Leak back for a 6th year?

Looks like your janitor coach has his hands full trying to figger that out boy.

Go Lady cane tennis! At least something we can cheer about.

Seems like the team that needs linemen is the Gar Trash.

NO QB depths;
NO O-line depths'
NO WR deptsh

all equals NO SPRING GAME; JUST A LOUSY SMELLY SITUATIONAL SCRIMMAGE WITH 20K 'NECKS IN ATTENDANCE.

YEP, THE SAME OL' UFAILURE.

Al Golden is not only one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting prowess is incredible. All this with what many believe to be the most onerous NCAA investigation in college football history that all experts agree has been a terrible drag on recruiting. Many of these same experts marvel at the extraordinary job Golden has done and believe without his magic Miami would find itself struggling to win 3 to 4 games each season for the next decade or longer.

With the addition of Brad Kaaya to the University of Miami's 2014 recruiting class the Canes have now been placed in the top 10 in recruiting for the nation.

Once the NCAA investigation is finally behind the Canes Al Golden will produce top 3 recruiting classes every year. As the legendary Cane Jimmy Johnson said; "Al Golden is a great coach and is the man to rescue Miami football from the sorry state he found the program in and will return the Canes to Championship football."

Wow, USC and UCLA "looked" at him ... And passed. Along with 30 other Schools... B[]_[]t not 2-Star []_[]...

#33 Pro-Style Q.B. (upper 70's overall ranked Pro/Duel Ranked Q.B.) Brad Kaaya 6-4/208... Chaminade College Prep West Hills, Ca.

College Offers...

Miami-------- Yes
SanDiego St.- Yes
Arizona------ No
Arizona St.-- No
Arkansas----- No
Oklahoma----- No
Oklahoma St.- No
Oregon------- No
Oregon St.--- No
Washington--- No
WashingtonSt. No
Cal---------- No
Stanford----- No
UCLA--------- No
USC---------- No
New Mexico--- No

Colorado----- No
Colorado St.- No
Idaho-------- No
Wyoming------ No
BYU---------- No
Utah--------- No
Utah St.----- No
U.T El Paso-- No
Texas Tech--- No
Fresno St.--- No
Hawaii------- No

So what does Coach Golden know that all these Western United States small and Big College Football Coaches don't know? This offer is a classic example of throwing sheeet up against the wall and hoping it sticks. That and trying to get Miami's name out West for anything, even at the cost of losing a local kid and future local kids at the price of trying to get kids out West, That even the Teams out West don't want.

.

HOLA ARTY !!!

In Coral Gables Al Golden is believed to be one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting debacles are incredible. The excuse put forth is the NCAA investigation into college football's most dirty repeat offender in history that all experts agree has nothing to do with recruiting. Many of these same experts marvel at dismal job Golden has done and believe without his incompetence Miami would find itself winning 3 to 4 more games for the past 2 seasons.
With the addition of Brad Kaaya to the University of Miami's 2014 recruiting class the Canes have now bungled another recruiting class with many decommits coming. Once the NCAA investigation is finally behind the Canes Al Golden will find no more excuses . As the legendary Cane Jimmy Johnson said; "Al Golden is just like Dave Wannestadt, a great coach and is the man to rescue Miami football from the sorry state he found the program in and will return the Canes to Championship football, just like Dave did with the Dolphins."
But Jimmy, Dave did not do that with the Fins.
"Exactly" said Johnson.
The Grand DelUsion lives on.

I think Soldy , Gallo , and Calvin are competing for biggest idiot and it's a very close race. I would hate to have to chose . I know towards the end of the high school season you will see alot more offers for the kid from Cali . I have read everything I can find about him and everything has been positive . Go Canes

Brad Kaya is a big, big, big get for the Canes and once again Al Golden has won.

Take a look at Brad's video package and you will see a pro-style QB who is unfortunately not currently supported by talented receivers, but has an incredibly strong arm that demonstrates pinpoint accuracy.

http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1269507/highlights/33774974

While USC and UCLA are now interested in Brad that list will grow to be a who's-who list of college football powerhouses as this kid is the real deal. Brad will become bigger, stronger and with our first rate coaching he will be a superstar. Canes fans this is a big find and commitment.

Again, congratulations to Big Al Golden--the Canes will return to championship football once the NCAA debacle is settled!!!

Hey Soldy I don't have to explain anything to you but I read about him at Bleacher report , Tom Lemmngs on sirius radio but not looking for your approval urd nugget. Go Canes

Here's the grand delusion Believing that All is the savior. Believing that the NCAA is the real problem. Believing that without Al The U will crumble. Believing that all the experts know what their talking about. The truth is the experts don't know Miami.The truth is the canes will win with or without Al.The truth is the talent is all around the state.Howard recruited local talent and won. The experts predicted Nebraska. Howard left with the trophy. Before Jimmy came to Miami was he winning no. Jimmy recruited here and he won. The experts said Oklahoma. Jimmy walk away with the trophy.Kids grow up loving the canes the pipeline is their. Get out of the office and off the golf course . Make it right with these kids and families. They are trusting you at your word Al. Do your word mean anything

Laughing...Canes All Night,

You have no idea what you are talking about.

Two questions for you:

1. Was the cupboard left bare for the great Miami coaches you referenced?

2. Were they blindsided by a NCAA investigation and ot just any NCAA investigation, but one of such a destructive force that many "experts" believe it has the potential to be more damaging than the one slapped on SMU.

THANK GOD FOR AL GOLDEN!

Al Goldens recruiting thus far hs beennothing but spectacular. When Randy Shannon finished the season before he was let go, BEFORE the bowl game vs Notre Dame, UM had something like 3 or 4 verbal commits with 2 months to go! In comes Golden and he managed to rapidly put UM in the top 20-25 in a very short time.

I agree with all the NCAA garbage looming thelast 2 years, his recruiting has literally saved this program for the next 3-4 years.

Another thing I like to see are the tons of NFL busts.


Rolando Mclain where he from?
Jamarcus Russell where he from?
Tim Tebow where he from?

Recruits: Come to NFL U.

The last time I checked (Laranaga) the guy is still the reigning Coach of the Year.

BLEACHER REPORT??? Are you really that ignorant Sota? Pete Arizona?? You set the bar for ignorant cane clucks dude. It's sad enough that you had to move to STINKPIT Georgia to find a dam job but at least have the nads to stick with one ID. Your ability to objectively analyze laughable cane athletics is nothing short of tragic. You're just plain stupid. Did you really call him the "REIGNING" coach of the year? Wake up []_[] clown

When you say recruiting. What type of recruiting are you talking about quantity or quality.The U can sign 2 and 3 stars recruits against any mid major college. How about 4 and 5 star recruits. How about the top recruits in Florida. Talk about the cupboard being dry.I was there watching Div 1AA Famu rattlers beat the Canes. After that lost I had to go to church. We were at an all time low. I believe an ant took a leak on us or maybe it was a passing sprinkle. I don't believe Golden was blind sided.

2010 - Shannon
total offense - 5477 #31 national & #1 ACC
total defense - 4199 #22 national & #3 ACC

2011 - AL golden
total offense - 4533 #70 national & #7 ACC
total defense - 4319 #45 national & #6 ACC

2012 - AL golden
total offense - 5282 #37 national & #5 ACC
total defense - 5837 #116 national & dead last ACC

funny how the media writers ignore performance......that's why they have OP pages

BTW - the basketball team had the exact NCAA sanction risk...the difference being they filled the UM trophy case...

Top Floida recruits that golden couldnt close...

#2 Vernon Hardgreaves - florida

Go Lady Canes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like Gabe Terry might not be gone after all...


GT_JustTakinOFF: Still a cane. Its gonna be a long summer []_[]

Gabe's Mom...


"God is good!!!! The best Mother's Day present ever my baby is still a Cane. It's all about the U!! Thank you Lord my heart praises you with Joy. You are the greatest ever!!!!!"

Don't forget...

Al Golden is not only one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting prowess is incredible. All this with what many believe to be the most onerous NCAA investigation in college football history that all experts agree has been a terrible drag on recruiting.

Calvin and Gallo- Be men (if you are). Admit your failure as humans. Admit that you were dead wrong about Gabe Terry.

You all dont have the pelotas.

GAllo wont point out that even though UM couldnt so-called "close" on players like Hardgreaves, bottom line is who cares- kids didnt want to come here- same couldbe said about UF and FSU regarding Duke Johnson and several others.

Gallo and Calvin you all are pieces of trash.

It is a fundamental law of nature that to evolve one has to push one’s limits, which is painful, in order to gain strength—whether it’s in the form of lifting weights, facing problems head-on, or in any other way. Nature gave us pain as a messaging device to tell us that we are approaching, or that we have exceeded, our limits in some way. At the same time, nature made the process of getting stronger require us to push our limits. Gaining strength is the adaptation process of the body and the mind to encountering one’s limits, which is painful. In other words, both pain and strength typically result from encountering one’s barriers. When we encounter pain, we are at an important juncture in our decision-making process.

Most people react to pain badly. They have “fight or flight” reactions to it: they either strike out at whatever brought them the pain or they try to run away from it. As a result, they don’t learn to find ways around their barriers, so they encounter them over and over again and make little or no progress toward what they want.

Those who react well to pain that stands in the way of getting to their goals—those who understand what is causing it and how to deal with it so that it can be disposed of as a barrier—gain strength and satisfaction. This is because most learning comes from making mistakes, reflecting on the causes of the mistakes, and learning what to do differently in the future. Believe it or not, you are lucky to feel the pain if you approach it correctly, because it will signal that you need to find solutions and to progress. Since the only way you are going to find solutions to painful problems is by thinking deeply about them—i.e., reflecting

if you can develop a knee-jerk reaction to pain that is to reflect rather than to fight or flee, it will lead to your rapid learning/evolving

golden cry's constantly about "sanction pain"......then goes viral with it.....he really doesn't understand true leadership.....he is really a young guy on the LEARNING CURVE......

the UM job should have never gone to him.....there was no real vetting of him....

DID NOT READ.....

GAllo-

I didnt read your garbage post. You are a loser

Ron Zook I really liked Ron Zook over All Golden for the Miami Coaching when the job was available. But after Kevin Sumlin. We see how everything turned out. I will not make negative comments during the season. Only before and after season

Yeah, but...

As the legendary Cane Jimmy Johnson said; "Dave is a great coach and is the man to rescue Miami football from the sorry state he found the program in and will return the Fins to Championship football."

And he saddled the franchise with a loser who kept the Fins down for years after he was finally fired.
Jimmy has no problem endorsing those losers he likes, like Wannestead before and like Golden now.

And once again you've proven why your screen name is: "Dumb Logic".

Congratulations and keep up the stellar work!

No, no, no you got it all backwards.
dUmlogic refers to statements like these: "Al Golden is not only one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting prowess is incredible"
Only Al's mom and a delusional fool like you believe that. That is dUmblogic, or just plain dumb.

Actually that was a baseless statement, as in not based on any facts or reality.
More like a delUsion.

With the addition of Brad Kaaya to the University of Miami's 2014 recruiting class the Canes have now been placed in the top 10 in recruiting for the nation

WTF is that supposed to mean? Why you talking bout some dude that will not be here for another year?
WTF are we gonna do bout the defense, them boys better start ballin soon. With the chump schedule we got we should win out, only problem woul be that clueless DC.
Don't talk to me bout no QB of the future when we need defense now. Get real, fool.

Reports: Miami lands pass-rushing Nigerian DL commit

Defensive lineman Ufomba Kamalu gave his promise to the Hurricanes while visiting this weekend, Rivals.com and 247Sports.com reported Sunday morning.

The Butler County (Kansas) Community College player was more of an under-the-radar prospect than the other JUCO member of UM's 2013 class. Kamalu is a 2-star prospect, according to Rivals.


.

DOWN GOES ANOTHER CANE D.T. and COMMIT !!!


b[]_[]h Bye says the Nigerian... "Defensive Tackle Ufomba Kamalu decides not to enroll at the University of Miami for early Summer School. He cites imminent Sanctions to the Miami Football Program as to the reason why he chose to not enroll. Kamalu says he will enroll at another school in August and Redshirt giving him time to grow and learn for 2014-2015."

Yo DOMasse, Ni-Fi-tU, Zooker, GagCane too bad huh? He was going to another 2-Star Cane Superstar riiieet ?

[]_[]nranked & 2-Star []_[]nder-The-Radar []_[] ...

LOL! So, once again, you refer to yourself as "Dumb Logic" via YOUR screen name and your 'logic' is it doesn't apply to you. Yet, you, "Dumb Logic", call people stupid! Have someone TRY to explain to you the sheer stupidity in that statement. LOL!
