Canes hope to parlay talented recruiting class, loaded starting rotation into first Omaha trip since 2008

The Miami Hurricanes open the baseball season this Friday -- Valentine's Day night -- against the visiting Maine Black Bears, a team which won the American East Conference and finished 37-22 last season.

Every year Jim Morris says he's excited about his team and its chances to get back to Omaha for the College World Series. But this year it looks like the Hurricanes actually have the talent to deliver on those hopes.

UM landed its best recruiting class in years and has one of the nation's top starting rotations with junior left-handers Chris Diaz (7-5, 1.64), Bryan Radziewski (9-3, 1.78), Andrew Suarez (3-6, 3.95) and senior right-hander Javi Salas (5-5, 3.18) all returning.

The issue -- as it usually is lately with UM -- will be offense. The Hurricanes finished 11th out of 12 ACC teams in batting average (.257) and runs scored (278) last year. But that's where the freshmen are supposed to come in and help. 

First baseman Zack Collins (27th round draft choice in 2013) and right fielder Willie Abreu (14th round), two left-handed bats, are expected to help sophomore third baseman David Thompson (.286, 6 HRs, 48 RBI) provide more oomph in the lineup.

Collins (Plantation American Heritage) and Abreu (Hialeah Mater Academy)  grew up huge Hurricanes fans and close friends since the age of six.

Abreu said he used to sit along the third baseline at Mark Light Field and taunt opposing hitters and pitchers and called one of his coolest moments getting a foul ball he caught signed with by the late Ron Fraser. Collins said his thrill was getting on the field as a kid alongside Gaby Sanchez and watching former Canes catcher Yasmani Grandal launch a home run into the third deck of the parking garage.

Collins, by the way, says he's already put a few balls into the same spot Grandal did during practice. One UM coach said Collins has the kind of power Yonder Alonso did.

The Pig's bio:

Class of '83 Gables. Grew up a Cane fan.

Went to Trailerville to receive no education. Back down in South Florida. Spends majority of his time on this blog.

Ain't that right, Pig?

SEC hoops awful. #3 Gatr Trash ranking is a myth. They have been pounded by the only good teams they play.

Typical.. Gatr. Garbage.

ok, if this is a Beisbol Blog, how does it feel that the Gators have KICKEDurazzzes the last 18 outta 21 times u no fielding, groundball booting clucks ?

Five Titles you still have nightmares about the so called name changing, murder joking, etc, etc troll?
The one who really doesn't exist yet you see him in every poster that says bad things about the sorry canes. Get some therapy dude.
It is obvious to anyone with half a brain that there is more than one person dissing the canes here. Problem is most of you don't have half a brain.
Guess what, there are cane idiots posting crap on the Gator blog everyday you fools dish it but can't take it.
ACC sucks in football, FSU is the one lonely exception.
SEC may be weak in basketball yet there are the same number of NCAA champs from the SEC as the ACC in the past 10 years. Can't say that about football, the only ACC champ in the last 10 years is the current FSU team.
This is a baseball story and in baseball you have sucked since 2008 and now want to rely on freshmen to finally make it to Omaha. Just like in football you HAVE to rely on freshmen to make it to the ACC ship game. Great parallel, and proof that you suck in all sports.

Baseball: Canes hope to parlay talented recruiting class, loaded starting rotation into first Omaha trip since 2008

Football: Canes hope to parlay talented recruiting class, loaded QB position into first ever ACC ship trip and first bowl victory since 2004.

Basketball: Canes hope to parlay depleted roster and no talent recruiting class into an NIT bid or at least a decent showing at ACC tourney.

The sorry state of cane athletics

How does it feel, Gatr Trash? Well, let me see if this helps"

- knowing the Canes have 3 beisbol titles to the Gatr Trash 0. Unless the Gatr Trash wins one, you are still backwater 'necks. Which you are anyway but, you know what I mean.

- how does it feel knowing the Canes have pounded the Gatr TRash in football 8 of the last 9?

Really? The backwater stench of Trailerville is toxic. It killed your reasoning capacity over the course of your 7 years of undergrad.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^

But, still: 21-16.

Choke on it, you backwoods varmint.

Boooo-hoooo.

Miamian-Gainesvilian.

9-11 marine heart.

Gator-Cane.

Waahahahahahahha. Get me a tissue.

"We are all Floridian-Americans."

The Pig Soldy

9-1-13.

Wahahahahaha. One love. Canes beat our ass. 5 star failures. Largest athletic budget craphole. Diploma mill in the backwater of the biggest white trash state in the US.

U are UFailure.

What do:

Kent Taylor, Max Staver, Rhaheim Ledbetter Quinteze Williams, Trevon Young, Ian Silberman, Tyler Murphy and yours truly, Cody Riggs have in common?


We have all transferred from that cesspool dumpster fire in Trailerville. You thought last year was bad?

Ga. Southern is dying to get us on the schedule this year.

Ooops, one more. "Florida redshirt freshman offensive lineman Octavius Jackson’s playing career is over after undergoing surgery in January..."

Feel bad for him but laughing at the curse of Urban Meyer on that squalid skeewwwl.

That is 7 transfers on the offensive side of the ball, plus the loss of the top two receivers and RB.

Man, you thought Driskel was a headless chicken last year?

You will wallow in your own excrement, Gatr Trash, only with the stench in Trailerville, you won't notice the difference.

I have to admit I initially fell for it. Then I thought, there's no such thing as rankings for softball, diving and women's tennis, and if there truly is, only a gator clownfish could actually cite them. Good one, ya got me.

ACC Sucks, huh?

- "The ACC became the first conference to have 11 teams with winning records since 1932, when the old Southern Conference was a 24-team league.

- It was the first time in the league’s 61-year history that three ACC teams ended the regular season with at least 10 wins (Florida State, Duke and Clemson).

- Duke won 10 games for the first time in school history. The Blue Devils' previous high for victories was nine, originally set in 1933 and matched in 1936, 1938 and 1941.

- Florida State finished 14-0 for the first time in school history, besting the previous mark of 12-0 set by the 1999 national champions.

- The ACC became the first conference in history to have a player win the Heisman Trophy (Jameis Winston, FSU), the Doak Walker Award (Andre Williams, BC), the Outland Trophy (Aaron Donald, Pitt), the Nagurski Trophy (Donald), the Lombardi Award (Donald) and the Bednarik Award (Donald) in the same season.

- Winston became the youngest player in history to win the Heisman Trophy. He was also the first freshman to win the award and lead his team to the national championship in the same season.

- With FSU’s win over No. 2 Auburn and Clemson’s win over then-No. 7 Ohio State, the ACC led all conferences with three wins over top-10 teams in 2013. The ACC was the only conference with multiple wins over top-10 nonconference teams."

Miami by next class 2015, will finally have same depth and talent level as FSU.... 1 class away. Goldens 1st class in 2011 was pieced togehter in 2 weeks, and he had 12,13,14, and we have a ton of young depth and talent now

Soldy, I set the pins up with the DT comment Saturday and you just destroyed them with a 300. Nice work Brutha. Hilarious that not a single cluck can come up with ANYTHING resembling an intelligent response. Dom is their leader. I do love that 8th best cornerback from Kansas though. It's a []_[] thang.

Posted by: Marble Mouf | February 08, 2014 at 11:51 AM

Uh, marble mouf? We got one of the best dt's from juco and sec teams were trying to get him also. An sec team would have gotten him if they didnt have the same transfer rule tha ACC has. He could have waited to go to the sec but chose to wait for the ACC . Plus we picked up Moten, another player the sec was after jard and heavy. Yes we adressed the dt position. We definitely need more ,but thats a good start.

Posted by: GeorThe ACC owns the gators;) | February 08, 2014 at 12:09 PM

OK Cane fan, let's go over this sllloooowwwwly so even U can understand. U addressed the DT position up to EXACTLY where it has been the last 4 Seasons. STILL BELOW AVERAGE. First off, the last 3 recruiting classes, 2011-2012-2013 Golden was only able to sign 5 total DT's. FIVE ! And NONE were or have been difference makers. This last 2013 Season, there were ONLY 6 TRUE DT's on the roster (not True Big 270-280lb Strong-side DE's like Chic has been ballooned up to because of desperate need at that u could move n pinch down in short yardage situations only). Pretty much 5 of those 6 DT's rotated in for the bulk of the minutes during the Season right? RIGHT now, check the roster as 3 of those 5 that did play have GRADUATED and are GONE (Shannon's final guys). So the DT #'s were down to just 3-THREE LIVE DT bodies, and one never or never will play, on the roster prior to last weeks Signing day... U following ?

U speak of the JUCO DT Michael Wyche that U believe that SEC teams offered. Well pal, they didn't offer. The kid went out to Cali for JUCO and was offered by USC (who recended their offer) for depth only. RIVALS.com has his only other offers as Wash. St. and Arky St. which are his only true offer besides U. SCOUT.com has the exact same offers plus Troy and Auburn as a preferred walkon that would qualify for Financial aid (who has need for someone to play 3rd. team DT in their unique 8-EIGHTMAN DT rotation is all). That's 1-ONE SEC offer and that's it due to the loss of DT's and scheme only for a fat body to play 8-10 plays a game. NOT Start for U and be an integral cog to ur A n B gap D-No scheme. ESPN.com has Arky St., Wash St., Troy, USC n U as his ONLY offers. Now someone, who's been smoking some seriously good chiba at 247Sports.com, has him FULL offered by Alabama n Florida and no other SEC School ! NOT A CHANCE ! Saban has no need and wouldn't even offer as a walkon. Florida NEVER offered, even though they still have 3-4 schollies to give, but did say, once he finished his next semester of JUCO they might talk about a preferred walkon. Why do U think this kid decommitted then when he found out there was no other options and came crawling back to U because Ur so desperate for even AVERAGE DT help ? So that's that story. U got an unranked 3-star DT that had nowhere else to go... Let's go on to the other 3 DT's (actually 2 true DT's) that U are so fired up about shall we ?

JUCO DT Calvin Heurtelou is next... Unranked 3-star offered by Auburn, due to graduation and early future NFL enrollees for their 8 man rotational scheme. NOT as a starter. Mizzou, due to 4 DT graduates, Tenn., who like U offered over 80 kids due to the need for everything are the ONLY SEC schools offering. But Texas St. really went after him hard... Again, all just for non-stating depth. Not come and play right away like he'll need to do for U.

Another 6-0 315 Weeble that Wobbles New Jersey DT Freshman Courtel Jenkins 3-star (and in Cane fan language, a New Jersey 4-star is like a Florida unranked or 2-star.) JUST ONE other offer from PITT period. Not even the sorry D-1 programs offered, except U of course. He'll have to come in and be thrown right into the 5 man rotation and play crunch minutes after fatigue and injuries mount and will get steamrolled. Instead of Red-Shirting, playing limited as a Red-Shirt Fresh and MAYBE develop as a Red-Shirt Soph BACKUP... Kid will be beat up and worthless by 2014 mid-season.

Finally St. Thomas Aquinas TRUE STRONG-SIDE DEFENSIVE END Anthony Moten. Every Top-Program that stockpiles D-Linemen that offered this good long-lean player saw him as a Strong-Side DE that would REDSHIRT, lose 15 of his 280 babyfat pounds, gain 15lbs back in pure muscle strength while not losing but gaining QUICKNESS, then playing sparingly until his Red-Shirt Soph year and then be a major force with GREAT DT and OLB help around him. U know, exactly what Top-SEC Speed SEC Defenses do... But U and Golden will be spouting off how he's GAINED WEIGHT (while losing quickness) and be forced to play the vast majority of his snaps out of position in between the Offensive Tackles inside shoulders right away as a TRUE underdeveloped FRESHMAN !!! He's going to get absolutely broken in half before he's ever ready to compete and ever help as a fully developed Upper-Classmen in Golden's BFF's Penn. St. scheme.

.

Soooooo, let's review, shall we ?

Yes we addressed the dt position. We definitely need more ,but that's a good start.

Posted by: GeorThe ACC owns the gators;) | February 08, 2014 at 12:09 PM

Ur happy U got 4 ? DT's in the 2014 Class. With them, U now still only have at max 7-8 DT's on the ENTIRE roster and 3-4 of them aren't ready or much less D-1 talented. U need more ? U've always and will continue to always need more. Everyone does. U NEED MORE THAT CAN PLAY !!! And haven't been there, aren't there and aren't coming. Good start ? Son, Ur not even in the race much less the starting blocks... So good luck to U with that...

.

psssssttttttt ... if u could have pulled LOCALS Kahari Clark, Travonte Valentine and just one more of the many top 4 n 5 Star NONE JUCO DT's that were available Nationwide in this class, U'd just might be well on ur way to saying "WE'RE BACK" !!! in 2 or 3 years once they DEVELOPE and are then backed up with even more DT talent the next 2-3 Recruiting Classes n Cycles. Not 1 or 2 DT hits and JUCO scrub band aides every 4-5 years that Golden is pacifying U "ALL IS WELL" Homers ....

Ohhhh, btw, who are those LB's that U signed that will be backing up the D-Line moving forward ? Thought so.

Ur D is Ur D ... Under Golden n Co. always will be...

@u are u ... D.T. P-[]_[]

All you did was speculate on the intentions of the schools who offered him. This school offered him for depth and that school offered him for depth. You got no inside knowledge so quit it already. They offered the tackles because they wanted the kids to play for them simple as that. And your speculation that people wanted Moten to slim down to end size is ridiculous! Moten is 315lbs right now and has always, even in high school, played tackle! Nobody recruited him as an end.

279lbs-TWO-HUNDRED and SEVENTY-NINE POuNDS ... I said 280 still with baby fat.

"one of Broward County’s top prospects and delivered, coming off the edge to finish with 40 tackles"...

THE EDGE, more specifically, the STRONG-SIDE RUN EDGE DEFENSIVE END. NOT a TRuE between the GAuRDS outside shoulders 0-1-2 gap DEFENSIVE TACKLE.


"A big body that can move well... which needs strong defensive linemen."

A BIG BODY that needs to drop body baby fat and gain muscle MASS and stay in the 285-290lb territory to retain his QuICKNESS as a PILLAR STRONG-SIDE D-END... u know, like a Reggie White Clone. And ALL TOP-SCHOOLS recruited him as a STRONG-SIDE D-END FIRST. Fisher, Miles, Saban and Muschamp recruited him as and would STRICTLY develop him into a STRONG SIDE D-END and occasionally slide inside on Goal-Line situations as they ALL, ALL TOP-PROGRAMS are STOCKED and already have 8-10 300-340 pound D.T.'s and another 8-10 270-290lb D-ENDS on their rosters over 4-5 recruiting cycles that wouldn't be needed to play until their REDSIRT Soph. years... But as u DOMASSES like to say... "COME TO DuH u, U CAN COME IN AND PLAY RIGHT AWAY!!!" DuuuuuuuuuuuHHHHHH u ever wonder why ?

D.T.'s ? U ? U had 3 serviceable D.T.s on ur ENTIRE roster the day before signing day. THREE !!! u signed 2, two year seat-filler JUCO's (one still might not come) and another DuD New Jersey Weeble and are in such dire need of DT's that Golden will be forced to add FAT to Moten, making him much slower and playing him right away as a plug D.T. before he's even remotely ready to play taking on interior College O-Linemen. The kid will have to play 30-40 snaps a game as a 1st. through 3rd. down DT for u and constantly be on crutches, in the training room for treatment and the weekly injury report before he even sees his Soph. year... And u will then be spouting off in 2015, 2016, and 2017 how Golden was able to get 2-3 JUCO DT's that no Top-Programs offer as STRATING D.T.'s but "Could" be the missing links to ur DT woes, year after year after year after year...


BCane Minions, I've seen MOTEN practice and play in person. He has perfect quick 6-4-280lb long lean body type to thin out his lower torso, add upper body mass strength while developing quickness and swim n rip move techniques that could make him a STUD D-END at the next level. But he's NOT A TRuE A-B gap D.T. u no nothing "speculating" cluless cane cluck.

But u, thinking he was a 315lb DT in High School and then will balloon up to 330lb and play strictly DT in College will sing Golden's praises as he and his BFF completely misuses and underdevelopes this kid hoping that u can finally say u gots D.T.s that are nothing more than fattened/slowed up 6-3/6-4/6-5 natural D-Ends or 6-0/6-1 300lb rollie polly weebles that wobble and do fall down after getting steam rolled scrubs. Lemme guess, when bust Chickallo comes in at 290 in August, he'll be a domminant D.T. riiieet ?

btw- Has anyone heard or seen if there's been an APB put out in Coral Gables for 6-5 285lb """D.T.""" uNDER-DEVELOPED #99 Jelani Hamilton ?


Finally St. Thomas Aquinas TRUE STRONG-SIDE DEFENSIVE END Anthony Moten. Every Top-Program that stockpiles D-Linemen that offered this good long-lean player saw him as a Strong-Side DE that would REDSHIRT, lose 15 of his 280 babyfat pounds, gain 15lbs back in pure muscle strength while not losing but gaining QUICKNESS, then playing sparingly until his Red-Shirt Soph year and then be a major force with GREAT DT and OLB help around him.

But u, thinking he was a 315lb DT in High School and then will balloon up to 330lb and play strictly DT in College will sing Golden's praises as he and his BFF completely misuses and underdevelopes this kid hoping that u can finally say u gots D.T.s that are nothing more than fattened/slowed up 6-3/6-4/6-5 natural D-Ends or 6-0/6-1 300lb rollie polly weebles that wobble and do fall down after getting steam rolled scrubs. Lemme guess, when bust Chickallo comes in at 290 in August, he'll be a dominant D.T. riiieet ?

btw- Has anyone heard or seen if there's been an APB put out in Coral Gables for 6-5 285lb """D.T.""" uNDER-DEVELOPED #99 Jelani Hamilton ?


at least i gots chicken

U know it should be, u moron. Maine has been to the college World Series many times! Any chance to knock the U by this U MORON GUY!!!!!!!!

Does this mean that if Morris doesn't deliver, he will be fired or retire?

Soldy, I set the pins up with the DT comment Saturday and you just destroyed them with a 300. Nice work Brutha. Hilarious that not a single cluck can come up with ANYTHING resembling an intelligent response. Dom is their leader. It's a []_[] thang.

Simply amazing ARTY how lesson after lesson after lesson after lesson after lesson after lesson after lesson after lesson, they never learn Arty...

it's a tr[]_[] cane thang though ...

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Well, the Canes learn one thing. That is how to beat Gatr TRash Tail. Just thought you might want to include that, Pig, in your monologue next 9/11.

Gator-Miamian.

Floridian-American.

Boooohooooo.

Talk about stupid. You are mid-50's, fat and spend your life on this blog. Yikes.

YYYYYYYyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnn ...

Does anyone speak ebonics or jive???

Soldy Pig. You were supposed to have retired. Died even. Remember your sad R.I.P. Soldy after the Canes pounded your gutless maggot foosball team?

Remember that? 9-11. Marines. Miamian-Gainesvilian? Blah, blah, blah, blah?

Remember, Pig? Canes own your every though, trailer maggot.

U be what U be:

4-8

#1 recruiting class in baseball and you will not sniff a national ch. anyway- typical gator way

Page long rants. Meta self references.

Impotent Rage.
Attention seeking man-child.

21-16
4-8
Self Block WPOTY vs. Div II. GS in a LOSS...

Keep it comin' piggy.

The only thing you delusional cane clucks can do is come up with insults and keep rehashing a score from last Sept. You beat the Gators last year so did most other teams no big accomplishment. You wouldn't have beat them the year before and you lost the one before that. I understand you fools don't have many accomplishments in the last decade so you want to hang on to that small victory as if it were significant. Knock yourselves out.
It is very funny that some of you idiots are already talking about 2015 recruiting, only morons do that so early. But then again you have nothing else going on.
Any hoops in the Gables? Nope.
Pumped about the baseball season? Not really.
But that 2015 linebacker sure looks good. You think GoldenFraud will be able to land another good class?
Dom says next year you will be on par with FSU and some other moron here thinks the ACC is really strong.
5 titles thinks there is some racist murderer stalking him. Too funny.
Nostradomasse leading the dumb, blind and delusional clucks and Five will research some obscure post from the 1960s to prove all non cane posters are the same guy.

I can't speak directly for the Genius that was SOLDY, but as he did so eloquently put it back in September, he did warn U that if U continued Ur incessant acts of cane clUck DELuSIONS regarding Cane Football that he'd be Resurrected from the Dead...

[]_[] only have Urselves to blame ...

And your speculation that people wanted Moten to slim down to end size is ridiculous! Moten is 315lbs right now and has always, even in high school, played tackle! Nobody recruited him as an end.


Posted by: Randy Shannons muttonchop sideburns | 02/09/2014 at 09:17 AM

Anthony Moten, DL, Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas

Ht.: 6-4 Wt: 279 Class: 2014

*** Recruiting buzz: Came into his senior season rated one of Broward County’s top prospects and delivered, coming off the edge to finish with 40 tackles, including 12 for loss and six sacks to earn Sun Sentinel first team All-County honors. A big body that can move well, Moten could have an impact early at Miami, which needs strong defensive linemen. ***

Another cane clUck OWNED n BEEYOTCH SLAPPED with FACTS. Not typical cane clUck made up delUsional flase hopes, prayers and wishes...

Again.

When Chickallo comes in at 290 in August, he'll be a dominant D.T. riiieet ?

btw- Has anyone heard or seen if there's been an APB put out in Coral Gables for 6-5 285lb """D.T.""" uNDER-DEVELOPED #99 Jelani Hamilton ?

.

Weren't these two BuSTS supposed to be ALL-AMERICAN Future 1st. rounders anchoring Ur Sieve of a D-Line by now? U know, like Morris n Dookie were without doubt the #1 QB/RB duo in ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL in 2013 ?

But hang in there cane clUcks... U'll have as much talent as FSU in 2015 according to ur resident brain dead cane cluck DOMMASSE even with a roster of over 50 of Ur 85 schollie comprised of AVERAGE 3-star project players the last 4 years.

"I can't speak directly for the Genius that was SOLDY"


Yahhhhh, Riiiiiiiiiight. Can smell the stupid all over a Pig like you from a mile away, maggot.

So with all the talent UF brought in, they expect to win 5 games this time?

[]_[] only have Urselves to blame ...
Posted by: Jason Voorhees XIII | February 13, 2014 at 12:52 PM

Actually the only people to blame are really lonely people who post on other team's blogs.

Don't know if to laugh in your face or cry, you fat slobbering piece of human manure. But here goes. This is always a good one at your fat stupid expense:


"OK University Of Miami Hurricanes Fans, here's the deal ... U Won, made the plays, deserved to Win, are the better team and have been the better program over a 30 year period. The Florida Gators got hit right in their moufs. That may just be an opinion, but that's what the results on the playing field states. No excuses. We Gators n Canes have been going at it since the Summer of '08 on these blogs and it's been full insults ahead for over 1,800 straight days. It's been a constant back n forth of, U said, Gator said... Gator said, U said. U Suck, Gators Suck. Has it been interesting ? At times sure. Has it been ugly ? Mostly. Has it meant a damn thing on the field ? No. Now back in that Summer of '08 the Gators will say U came to their blog spouting pollution. And U will say that the Gators came to Ur blog doing the same thing. Ultimately and ending cycle of mostly senseless ridiculousness that just went round n round in a circle of insults and foolishness didn't mean a thing. So, having said that, It's over. I'm not asking for a truce, just saying it's over by virtue of the fact that our Football rivalry is no more. It's just in the past. Now U can say why U think it's over. And Ur entitled to that opinion. The Gators will have their reasons, and they are entitled to that opinion. Bottom line is this... Right now, Miami Football... Florida Football ... Florida State Football Programs are not "Back" Yet. But they are ALL rising. No debate that they are 3 of the Best Top to Bottom College Football Programs College Football has EVER seen and easily Top-5-10 over the last 20-30 years combined. Simply put, when the State of Florida BIG-3 are ALL doing well, College Football is far better as a result. It's a State of Florida thing that the other 49 States, as well as the World simply wouldn't understand, could never understand, will never get and certainly will never fathom.

Now I'm not here to call for some kind of truce. I think we all know, in totality, that's an impossibility. And really, I don't really think we need one. We as fans are passionate. Some more fanatical than others. But from this point forward I hope we can just be more civil to one another as Miamian-Hurricanian / Gainesvillian-Reptilian - Floridian Americans. I will. I also sincerely want to apologize for some of my disrespectful comments in the past Cane fans. But in my own defense, I must say that far more of my "nasty" and "hateful" posts were others impersonating me. And trying to explain that, during those times, was simply useless. As for the other Gators that post here, I ask you to drop n bury the axe. It's been too long, the winding road has run it's course. The Gator n Cane points and counter points are just moot now... Time to move on. The Canes have their destiny and the Gators have theirs. God willing, for the sake of College Football, they will meet again someday in the foreseeable future in the Post-Season. Which could only mean one thing... We Both Don't SUCK !

In closing, I think we Gators n Canes can certainly agree on one thing. There are ups n downs, trials n tribulations, ebbs n flows for every Program in College in all Sports as well as life... I do believe it's safe to say that The Miami Hurricane and Florida Gator Football Programs are both ascending no matter how we might personally feel about the past... Win or Lose, Victory or Defeat, Saturday September 7th from High Noon until the final gun was as compelling as College Football gets or ever gets (minus of course that Driskel left-handed pass with 8 seconds to go). Much respect to U and Urs ...

Good luck Cane Fans... Go get Ur Coastal and ACC Championship. When U do, the rest will fall into place...

Gators ... ditto ... Eastern ... SEC ... ???

See U down the line Mighty CANE FANS ... perhaps in Basketball or Baseball ... SALUTE.

No Mas from me.

Sincerely,

A Miami born GATOR/CANE ... 9-11-13

C'est la vie Arty ... It's been real brother.
