Miami Hurricanes announce 2014 baseball schedule

 

HERE'S THE RELEASE JUST SENT BY UM:

 

BASEBALL UNVEILS 2014 SCHEDULE 

Miami preps for challenging spring slate 

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Just one week away from officially opening fall practice, University of Miami head baseball coach Jim Morris released the team’s 2014 schedule Monday.

Miami’s 55-game schedule includes 33 contests inside Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field. The Hurricanes finished with a 28-12 record (.700) at home this past season, qualifying for the NCAA postseason for the 41st consecutive year - the longest active streak in collegiate athletics.

“I think it’s one of the tougher schedules that we’ve played since I’ve been in Miami,” Morris said. “With the new ACC teams, plus the ones we already had in the conference, it’s going to be tough. Our nonconference schedule features some of the other great programs in South Florida.”

The Hurricanes will kick off 2014 with their annual preseason festivities: the First Pitch Banquet (Feb. 6), as well as FanFest and the Miami Baseball Alumni Game (Feb. 8).

Miami opens their 2014 slate with a weekend series against Maine (Feb. 14-16). The Hurricanes will host Florida (Feb. 21-23), head north for an exhibition with the Miami Marlins in Jupiter, Fla. (Feb. 26), and travel to Dick Howser Stadium for a series with Florida State (Feb. 28 – March 2) before opening conference play at home against Boston College (March 7-9).

Miami’s final two weekends in February feature three-game sets against rivals Florida and Florida State. The Hurricanes’ series against the Seminoles will not count towards ACC standings. The two programs will resume matchups with conference implications in 2015.

“We have a great rivalry with both programs,” Morris said. “There are a lot of Florida and Florida State fans across this state, and it’s important to play both of those schools every year.”

Miami will wrap up its regular season with a home series against North Carolina (May 15-17) before a potential trip to Greensboro, N.C., and the 2014 ACC Baseball Championship (May 20-25).

“I’m very excited,” Morris said. “I’m looking forward to seeing the younger guys compete against our veterans. We have a good nucleus returning, our recruiting class has been rated highly, and I’m excited to see them compete to see just how good we are.”

Tougher schedule, nice to hear.

Now let's see Morris get the players tougher, too. Honestly been disappointing to see compared to previous years.

No matter who you are what shannon did in 2009 was way more impressive than what coach goldie has done thus far this year, but like i said, the challenge for coach was for him to equal or surpass what shannon did in his 3rd year. While we are 5-0 he anybody with a brain knows we haven't been tested by a real legit offense, our chances to show and prove coach donofrio belongs here are coming up! I still don't understand why we had trouble with an option team in year 3, who cares about a diamond formation, coach pj just used a variation of the same formation the gaytors used on us that worked where matt jones almost housed one and i'm not talikng about the one where highsmith tripped him up, it's the one where jenkins got a hold of em.

We'll see what Alquadin Muhammad has to say after this stretch of football, cause so far he's right, after playing all the cupcakes we've played thus far, i'm glad he's making statements like "college is not as hard as i thought it would be".

Hey give Muhammed a break. What is a kid a year removed from high school say after playing cream puffs every week? That the college game is not as hard as he thought of course.
Guess what Muhammed, it only gets easier for you.
Next up is 1 win UNC, now that is really tough right?
How about lowly Wake next in line?
Another cream puff you say?
Wait until you get Duke and Pitt.
Life is so easy in the ACC.


muhammad also said the biggest change is the speed so he knows on his own admission he has a lot to learn, i am not sure why you make the comment about stopping the triple option, they move the ball fairly well against everyone but we still found a way to win, just ask all the top twenty five teams that lost how they feel about just getting a win.this is what the schedule is, so you cannot blame um for winning those games, but all across the country the conference games begin and the losses pile up look at bamas out of conference schedule and ohio state and louisville it is embarrasingly bad, like um or not we will have our chance to run the table, nc va tech and fsu await win those and you can play after new years

dUmblogic:

Typical Gator fan....does 21-16 ring a bell? Lol you're an embarrassment. Oh crap here comes lowly Toledo that we could barely beat at home. But wait we also beat one of the worst Tennessee teams ever and a god awful Arkansas team who just lost by 50 to South Carolina. But wait it gets better. We took out powerhouse Kentucky. Who did we lose to again? Oh ya that Miami team that we still think we are better than. hahahhah you're pathetic and make me laugh. Sill gayturd trash. 5 national championships and still going

Hey give the Gator, dUmblogic, a break. What is a kid a year removed from elementary school for very, very slow learners going to say after rooting for the lowly, criminal Gators every week? That the college game is must be made up of felons and serial killers.
Guess what dUmblogic, it only gets worse for you.
Next up is Vanderbilt, a team without a QB, now that is really tough right?
How about lowly Georgia Southern next in line? Ugh!!
Another cream puff you say?
Wait until you get Kentucky and the Mrs,issippies.
Life is so easy in the SEC West.
Wow! Louisville just scored again!!!

PS: 21-16...laughing at you Gator clowns!!

There goes that monkey Calvin,and his obsession w the worst coach in Miami's history. Calvin, u must just want to argue w someone. Get a life dude. LOL Shannon lmao

muhammad also said the biggest change is the speed so he knows on his own admission he has a lot to learn, i am not sure why you make the comment about stopping the triple option, they move the ball fairly well against everyone but we still found a way to win, just ask all the top twenty five teams that lost how they feel about just getting a win.this is what the schedule is, so you cannot blame um for winning those games, but all across the country the conference games begin and the losses pile up look at bamas out of conference schedule and ohio state and louisville it is embarrasingly bad, like um or not we will have our chance to run the table, nc va tech and fsu await win those and you can play after new years

Are you new to the triple option, did Georgia tech move the ball against Virginia tech, not much(129yds rushing) you know why, because bud foster understands perfectly well how our Miami teams always use to play defense. To those who keep trying to make the point that because most teams are playing a 3-4 scheme now, go and see Virginia tech's defense to see what a 4-3 defense does. They dominated bama's offense and you could see the bama receivers couldn't shake the press man coverage to often. Also, see the gaytors defense again as well, that 4-3 they run don't seem to have a problm shuting teams down.

Also, why do everyone want to keep saying "look at other teams this & that" so are we to be copy cats now when we were the standard for how football is suppose to be played now we got alot of people on here trying to justify being a copy cat.

sicko logic is the same disgusting obsessed gatr from last week that went on a profane rant and then disappeared. He is just trying to pretend he is a new troll, but the "style", or lack thereof, shows that it is the same troll that jokes about Canes player deaths on a daily basis for the past five years.

RJ, I know his comments are laughable at first, but once he gets you talking to him, he will lower the bar to his usual disgusting level.

Step 1: Pretend to be a brand new troll, attack comments that nobody made here.

Step 2: If he tricks someone into responding to him as new, toss a couple insults their way, to see if he can get them to respond the same way.

Step 3: And this is the horrible part, he then complains to the Herald, Post, or Sun Sentinel to get you banned. Since he jumps from IP to IP, it doesn't hurt him when it happens, but regular posters get banned and then decide not to post anymore, leaving just the gator troll posting there.

Step 4: Proclaim victory over that Canes fan, who cannot respond.

This has been his pattern daily on multiple Canes sites, so be careful, RJ and any others thinking this is just some new clueless gatr troll. It is the same old clueless gatr troll from last week, and the week before that, and the week before that, ad nauseum.

BTW, Miami is undefeated against the SEC this year. Can the gatrs say that? Nope.

Calvin U dumbass that is what all college teams do now, look at what is successful for other teams and immolate it with your own twist. Don't U think other teams did that with us when we were dominate on defense, U idiot.

Calvin just ongoing full of crap. Same defense buzz nonsense. Doesn't understand 3-4 defenses and how they dominate the landscape today.Stuck in about 1985.

GKC,you mailed that monkey Calvin perfectly. This fool thinks its 1985. Same rants over and over. Just a lonely fool looking for someone to argue/debate with. Shannon is gone fool and we are so better off for it. Al Golden is better than Coker and Shannon put together. Its cracks me up when banana boy starts in about jpic and deer in head lights Shannon . Comical!!

We have the best oline in the country
pease is the best OC in football
we dont need Easley(relaoded)
Our 2 * qb is better than our5* qb
We will win the sec
We have more trophies than some schools
Gainesville is a tourist destination
our rbs are deep
Our receivers dont drop passes
Muschamp is the best thing to happen to uf
Tebow will be an nfl legend
We gift more games than anyone in state
Our oline backups can start any div11 teams
We will travel anywhere
Bama is overrated

Calvina the Banana Boy = Priceless

HEY CALVIN I AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT THE 4-3 DEFENSE MAN I CANNOT STAND TO SEE A TEAM DOMINATE FIRST AND SECOND DOWN AND THEN COME BACK ON 3RD AND LONG AND GOES 3MAN RUSH WITH THE QB HAVING ALL DAY AND CONVERTS ON 3RD AND A MILE. SOME OF THESE COACHES PLAY TOO MUCH X BOX. ONE OF THE BEST QB IN THE MODERN ERA(BRADY) HAS LOST TWO SUPER BOWLS TO THE SAME TEAM BECAUSE OF THE 4-3. IN THE NEXT 5-10 YEARS WE WILL HAVE MORE HURRICANE HALL OF FAMERS BECAUSE OF THE 4-3 DEFENSE.. HELL LOOK AT THIS YEAR 'S SACKS THEY ALL HAVE PRETTY MUCH CAME FROM 4 MAN RUSH. VT IS WINNING BECAUSE THEY ARE PLAYING "LIGHTS OUT " 4-3 DEFENSE. CALVIN MAY NOT ALWAYS BE RIGHT BUT THIS TIME HE IS AND I'M NOT TOTALLY AGAINST THE 3-4 BUT IT SHOULD ONLY BE USED TO PREVENT "HAIL MARY'S ONLY OTHER WISE 4-3 ALL DAY EVERYDAY..

I got a question for u guys. Why the f do fans from sec schools chant sec when they win? No other team does that, it just makes no sense to me, that's like a dolphins fan chanting afc afc when they win. Who the f cares about that's its about the team. I just can't get it but I guess for a conf that has teams that raise the conf flag on game days and wears Jorts being backwards is the norm

VT does not run a true 4-3 base defense. See here:

Cal, you are wrong as usual.

Only people who understand football actually understand what you just wrote, to many dummies in here that post like girls cause they don't know football. The base 4-3 will dominate any offense, especially that spread crap, our linebackers now at their size can't Truly go out and cover runningbacks, so they have to be sure to play there area's correctly in order to help out. None of them can cover duke johnson in a pass route like the linebacker for Fsu did when he ran the route better than johnson and had smo17 looking like man, that worked all the time in practice.

Speaking of brady, never really looked that good against tthe dolphins when we had madison & surtain and the 4-3 defense that was built and left by jimmy johnson and dave mustache continued it. brady had basically his worst stats against us, we just were to stupid to go out and get a real qb and wide-outs, sticking with jay fiedler was another one of those all time stupid moves by the dolphins.

You said perfectly, going 3 rush linemen on 3rd down is just pathetic. I can understand that being done in the redzone but common sense should tell a d-co, go 4 down linemen on 3rd downs. As it stands right now, we'll see if coach donofrio continues to use tyriq & Alquadin Muhammad on obvious passing downs. If they actually become good run stoppers will they be left in their for most of the game, time will tell.

It's real apparent now that you really don't understand defense. What's the difference between a 4-3 & a 4-4, this clown actually thought he posted something to refute what we've been saying about the 4-3 base, again, another girly tatic. I'll give you a clue, go and watch the 2005 game we played against Virginia tech, it might start coming crystal clear to you, again, it's only a few people on here who can actually talk football. Alot of you need to go and post on a QVC blog, i'm sure yall will fit right in posting about the next cheap bracelet.

Calvin once again showing he's the dumbest person on earth.

It's as sure as the sun coming up every morning.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/10/14/3688775_p2/accused-killer-of-canes-redskins.html

"During his interview, he grew increasingly nervous but was given pizza and Coca-Cola by detectives. Detectives pressed Rivera to come clean. His eyes watered, according to one police report.

Miami-Dade Detective Larry Belyeu, according to the police report, discussed how “the death of Sean Taylor, a National Football League player, was horrific. Mr. Taylor was not a drug dealer and that he was a hero to the youth all over America,” according to the police report."

Hey sicko troll, known as curse piggy by many, that is the Miami-Dade police, investigating this crime, CONFIRMING that you are a sick liar. You claimed you were working with them on a drug dealer angle, and I doubted it from the start. You provided no proof, and continued to make tha accusation even after multiple people told you that you were going far beyond regular trolling with your sick comments.

"Mr. Taylor was not a drug dealer and that he was a hero to the youth all over America."

You are a hero to nobody, except for your other aliases trying to make yourself feel better about your behavior.

Justice for the victims of that crime, and there were more victims than just the hero that took a bullet protecting his FAMILY, has taken six years. Justice for the readers of your sick lies is still waiting.

Now, go away, never come back, and change your ways, troll.

Calvin, be GD LUCKY you are not in arms reach, because you would be getting BEEEOTCH SLAPPED by ALL of my 6' 3" 210 frame. We're 5-0, and Randy NEVER was, we're ranked 10th in the nation and Randy NEVER was, we have played some cupcakes, and so has EVERYONE else, and are now getting into their conference schedules. Bud Foster did this and Bud Foster did that, SO FFFing what? We kicked the you know what outta then last year, and will do so again, because they have NO offense, and WE DO.

Your casual little observations are some of the most ASSININE I've ever heard, and again be glad you don't know me, because people like you need to be slapped like a baby. If you don't like the Canes then GET THE HELL out of HERE!!!!

Calvin is black and so is Shannon and Calvin just can't accept the fact that the black guy failed horribly and the white guy is succeeding. Randy Shannon was just a downright disaster. Just look at Shannon now at Arkansas, disaster and failure! Shannon is a train wreck wherever he goes. Calvin is the most racist person on this blog and all he is doing is just defending his homey. Get a life and a clue fella.

Swann, don't fall into the Calvina way back when trap.

Very rarely do 3-4 defenses rush 3 guys. A major objective of the scheme is do bring pressure from different directions, generally with 4 or 5 guys.

A few fall back to a 3 man rush on 3rd a very long, but even that is pretty rare these days. Send more guys than they can block and force the QB to chuck up a long one way before ready or dump off for a short gain and 4th down.

As offenses have become more sophisticated and spread out, you need more aesthetes on the field. Calvin has also said Tyrid McCord gained too much weight (his man obsession) and couldn't play in space. Wrong and wrong.

Thanks for the heads up 5 titles, I appreciate it. And your right just not worth it

It's amazing this dope Calvin is arguing things from 5 seasons ago.

As Bill Parcells said, you are what your record says your are. In Randy's case, that was mediocre.

End of story.

we're ranked 10th in the nation and Randy NEVER was,

1st off, in real life you'd get yo mofo arse kicked, that's first off. Next off, when did you become a Hurricane fan in 2010, because you like alot of these imbeciles in here wonder why we bring up shannon, because it's imbeciles like you who either can't read or have that much hate for shannon that you're even to stupid to actually read and comprehend the article when it clearly said, "Hurricanes ranked in AP top-10 for first time since October 18, 2009", who do you think the headcoach was in 2009 buffoon. In fact the team in 2009 were ranked 8th in the country instead of 10th, so maybe that's what you meant by "randy never was", you idiots make this to easy!

Impress the moms at the peewee football leagues, Cal. Or you need to chase UPS trucks to steal packages as you used to do.

If you want to use the correct terminology and description, VT does not run a 4-3 base defense. If anything they are closer to the 4-2-5 (VT does declare a Rover Safety on their depth charts).

We at UM are not a true 3-4 either. Most of the defenses these days run hybrid schemes. Get out of the weeds complaining about the defense.

We get it, Jacory Harris and Randy Shannon are the best QB and Head Coach respectively in UM's history. Can you please stop your blather now?

Go 'Canes, beat the 'Heels.

"Hurricanes ranked in AP top-10 for first time since October 18, 2009"

And they proceeded to get their arse handed to them.

You are what your record say you are. Randy was mediocre. End of story.

Rick, that was a great tweet you posted in the last thread.

Hilarious that UNC is taking credit for that, when it is OBVIOUS they are there for NFL U.

"Jesse Holley ‏@Mr4thAndLong 17h
“@TarHeelFootball: A school-record 37 NFL scouts, including five GMs, are credentialed for the Thursday night game.” We Make Pros!!!!"

LOL! This is not @TarHeelBasketball and Micheal Jordan is long gone.

Still, 37 NFL scouts are gonna see Morris and Duke and even Seantrel and that will make them battle it out to see who can get those players first.

Spoken like a True hater, no matter what any of you sissy's say, shannon had UM ranked #8 in the country, like obama that kind of history can't be erased that easy!

Who cares what your team's mid-season rank is?

Only after the fact nits like Calvin.

Simple story--- all Canes fans loved Randy as a player, grad asst, position coach and DC. He was a terrible HC.

The end.

Lot of nonsense here about defensive formations, whatever.
But this nonsense about Randy Shannon is a joke.

He was going downhill so fast that UM couldn't wait till after the bowl game to fire him, even with over a year of contract left. We had to have an assistant coach the bowl game in El Paso.
Only good thing he did was clean up the crime element, for that I give him credit.

Shannon is now DC in Arkansas giving up 40 a game and Jakory is 3rd string in Canada.

Come on Calvin, put on dark sunglasses and maybe Golden will look more appealing to you.

Actually, Shannon isn't even the d-coordinator at Arkansas, he's just the LB coach.
