Senior Dale Carey named ACC Player of the Week as Canes continue to surge nationally in baseball

Once again, the Hurricanes are making news on the national baseball front as senior center fielder Dale Carey was named ACC Player of the Week on Monday, the same day that UM saw its highest rankings in all the polls.

 UM is ranked fourth by Collegiate Baseball, seventh by Baseball America and 12th in the USA Today coaches' poll.

The Canes are now 38-14 overall and 22-5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference, having won 25 of its past 27 games and a nation-leading 15 consecutive away games.

UM is coming off its fourth consecutive ACC road sweep, with Carey making a big contribution to the effort.

Carey, from Marietta, Ga., led the team with a .429 batting average (6 for 14) in three games against the Blue Devils. He hit his first career grand slam in Saturday's 9-1 win and led UM with six RBI for the weekend. He also finished 3-for-3 in stolen bases.

In the series finale Sunday, Carey hit a game-tying RBI single and started another game-tying rally later with a double.

The senior is the only Hurricanes who has started all 52 games this season, going 2-for-3 with two walks and an RBI single in a 7-2 win over Florida Gulf Coast.

The Canes have the best record in the ACC, and end the regular season against ACC foe North Carolina (30-21, 14-13) with a three-game set Thursday through Saturday at Mark Light Field. 

After that it's the ACC Tournament in Greensboro, N.C., and then the NCAA tourney that should begin with UM hosting a regional.

For those who haven't come to a game, I'd highly suggest it. It's a really nice, low-key, kid-friendly atmosphere and the fans are among the best I've seen in college sports.

See you Thursday.

Not a 2 star, not someone that nobody else was recruiting, chose the U over UF and FSU and a bunch of other schools.

Meanwhile, Aaron Hernandez talking about doing a remake of the longest yard.

proud clUck a clUckin'...

Bok Bok.


Please screen the forum comments.

UM has landed a "soft" oral commitment from Tampa Hillsborough High quarterback Dwayne Lawson, a three-star prospect who has been generating considerable interest from major schools recently.

Last season, Lawson threw for 2200 yards, 22 touchdowns and six interceptions and ran for 1000 yards and nine touchdowns.

He told canesport.com that he should be considered a "soft" commitment, will make a final decision in October and plans to visit Tennessee, Ohio State and Mississippi in the coming months.

He had more than 25 offers, including from FSU, UF, Auburn and Louisville.

"I just think Miami is the place for me to be," Lawson told canesport. "That's what made me commit. I prayed on it, think that's the best situation for me. It's a perfect situation, I feel, it really is. There's the playing time chances, the players they have on the team and the coaches, the coaches are great coaches."

At 6-5 and 207 pounds, Lawson has been compared, physically, by some analysts to Cam Newton. He says he's a pass-first quarterback who runs when the pocket breaks down.

James Coley and Larry Scott have been his primary recruiters.

UM recently lost out on New Jersey quarter Brandon Wimbush, who orally committed to Penn State, and is no longer in the top five for American Heritage four-star quarterback Torrance Gibson.

Lawson is UM's 11th oral commitment for 2015 and first quarterback in the class.


how's ur girls tennis team doing ?

u ... ? ... ? nowhere

what's worse, being 4-8 last year or being ranked behind that team this year ?

This might be heresy, but isn't it scary how one must honestly admit how similar our situation is to OoF, insofar as the expectations that real success engender a sense of tradition that must be upkept at all times, yet can be so easily upset and hard to reestablish?

For all the distinctions between they types of institutions we are, and that we are winning in the head to head, and that we are better human beings - that we are so close to being in the Gators current position come this time next year?

U've been behind and are still trailing since 1992... but to a complete cane clUck, that's like 2 or 3 years ago...

1 CHAMPIONSHIP in over 24 YEARS for u ... u dig ?

UM: 5 championships in 87 years of existence. That's 1 every 17.4 years

UF: 3 in 160 yrs of existence. That's 1 every 53.3 years

FSU: 3 in 162 yrs: 1 every 54 years

LMAO, I think we ALL (including you) know what's worse, and that's a very weak wittle boy who posts a MEANINGLESS football ranking on a BASEBALL blog, who's baseball team is BEHIND us, thank you very much. So please continue to make yourself look silly, we love it.

Ahhh, the blog Pig is back. Yep, #23 preseason. Last year, it was #10 and Gatr Trash ended 4-8 so using #23 as a base, the Gatr Trash may go 1-11 this year.

What's worse, losing 8 of 9 to the Canes or having a skewl located in a steaming cesspool like Trailerville?

Hmmmm, could go either way for the trailer donkeys.

Piggy, piggy...

your reading comprehension needs a touch...

If you're going to quote me, at least understand what I was getting at...

Bok bok.

If Driskell is your qb, you shouldn't be ranked. Man is he dumb. Makes Morris look like he had a PhD in progressions.


Just a few months until we hear what a great senior year that inbred Driskel will have. After scraping past Idaho, the Gatr Trash faithful will talk SlimEC championship.

And then, reality will set in. All those dumb 'necks will cry in their Natty Light and call for Muscrap's neck.

It will be fun to watch.

Jimmy Graham and Aaron Hernandez both going to court, dealing with similar issues.

One is to argue that since he killed it on the field, that he should not be paid more like a wide receiver than a tight end.

The other is to argue that since he killed it off the field and has been in jail for six months, he is more like a wide receiver than a tight end.

Yep, that clown that said Aaron Hernandez would have a better career than Jimmy Graham, we just saw him post above, will never admit he was wrong, he will just say that he was talking about a different career.

Congrats to Coach Golden and Co. for landing 4 star QB Dwayne Lawson out of Tampa for the class of 2015. 6-5 and 215 pounds. Kid can run and throw. Go Canes.

Let's stomp some Heels in the double header today. GO CANES!!!!!

Congratulations CANES on winning the ACC!

Keep it going!
