    Don't worry the Gators Baseball team is very up and down and I can see this ending soon. Hopefully not tho. Yeah the Canes basketbal team was relly weird. I watched there games and some they looked like top 5 and other you ask yourself what there doing on the court. Really weird

    Sean Taylor murder trial has been delayed again!

    [ame="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4247850"]Trial in killing of Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor postponed to 2010 - ESPN[/ame]

    The trial date for four of the five men charged with the killing of Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has been postponed for a third time.

    The new date is Jan. 18, 2010, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday. The trial was scheduled to begin this month.

    "We don't think there will realistically be a trial before next spring," Terry Chavez, the Miami-Dade state attorney's office spokesperson, told The Post.

    Police said Taylor was a victim of a botched robbery when he was shot in his bedroom on Nov. 26, 2007, in the Miami suburb of Palmetto Bay. He died of massive blood loss a day later. The All-Pro player was 24.

    Four of the accused -- Charles Wardlow, 19, Jason Scott Mitchell, 21, Timmy Lee Brown, 17, and the alleged gunman, Eric Rivera, 19 -- appeared in a Miami courtroom on Tuesday for a hearing. All have pleaded not guilty and are being held without bail.

    Really. What a complete waste for a guy to better himself by going to college and on to a professional football career, only to get killed by the type of guys his mom tried to keep him away from growing up.:sad:

    I think it's a cool choice. Represent the entire 'U' with the :theu:! :up:

    "All of University of Miami to adopt 'U' logo.

    The University of Miami is adopting its sports logo to represent the entire educational institution.

    The Hurricanes' ''split U'' -- orange on left side, green on the right -- began appearing on nonathletic materials on Tuesday.
    The name ''University of Miami'' will accompany the ''U'' logo on letterheads and most other uses. In some cases, the name of the college or other unit will be used, too. Previously, UM used an all-type logo that featured the word ''Miami'' in large letters with a smaller ''University of'' above it and a thick line underneath.

    The university's health system also will adopt the new mark."

    Looks like Randy Shannon is dead serious with adding bigger RBs and now a head knocker FB. I for one am in total agreement.

    We all know the story with Bryce Brown and his recruiting fiasco. Shannon never went after Jamal Berry very hard and it ticked some of the fans off, looks like he was right in the end since the OSU signee just got busted with with an ounce of weed...

    Did you guys hear Jacory's interview with Joe Rose this morning?? The more I hear this kid speak, the more his leadership qualities become more and more evident. I feel and intense mancrush brewing....:lol:

    I was watching a Cowboys classic game yesterday and I was watching Roger Staubach drop back in the pocket. I thought he looked a lot like Jacory. Both have small, long arms but can throw the deep ball pretty well and both have the ability to scramble.

    Although I have little faith in Randy Shannon as a Coach (great recruiter, bad teacher, terrible game-day coach) I still can't help being excited for this season.

    Ok it's been debated ad nauseam on local talk radio - so I came up with the wonderful idea to bring it here: What's our record going to be??

    7-5 seems to be the popular pick, some say 8-4 and others have gone as far as 10-2. The question was posed to me this morning and after some thinking I came up with 9-3 with losses to Oklahoma, VTech and Clemson.

    I see us playing a spread offense this year with Jacory in the shotgun a lot. That may sound blasphemous since it's not traditional Hurricane football but I believe coach Whipple looks at the WR's and QB and decides the best way to get the ball in the endzone is to air it out.

    Discuss.

    Should be interesting to see how the Canes start the season. Shannon postponing those contract talks was pretty risky with the tough 4 games you have to open the season. Losing a couple games at the beginning of the season can be tough on a young team. Love to see them pull off some upsets though, especially OU.

    On the other hand if we can find a way to win all of those games, or even just three, it's a huge boost for the rest of the season. We'll have to see what happens.

    Very true, although when you consider you have your top rival, the team that put up almost 500 rushing yards against you last season, the team that seems to be in the conference championship game every season, and the team coming off a National Championship loss, thats a pretty tough start. High risk, high reward. :up:

    Right now, and I tend to be overly optimistic in the preseason, the only one I'm worried about is the OU game. And if we go undefeated in those first four games, I'd hate to waste the season losing on a 'bad game day' to somebody like Duke. So I'll go with 11-1.

    9/07 @ Florida State 8:00 PM

    9/26 @ Virginia Tech TBA
    10/03 Oklahoma TBA
    10/10 Florida A&M TBA
    10/17 @ UCF 7:30 PM
    10/24 Clemson TBA
    10/31 @ Wake Forest TBA
    11/07 Virginia TBA
    11/14 @ North Carolina TBA
    11/21 Duke TBA
    11/28 @ South Florida TBA

    I am going with 9-3. There is no way u guys come out of this 11-1. Jacory Harris is going to struggle and that will cost u guys a few games. Alot of other teams our alot better too. You guys have the toughest 4 game stretch since the Gztors 4 game stretch in 06. I dont think the Canes can beat Oklahoma but the canes played well vs the Gators spread. Georgia Tech is scary with that option. Miss a few tackles and it could get ugly quick. I like 9-3 with losses to Oklahoma. V Tech, and Georgia Tech.

    You guys will beat FSU easy if u can stop Ponder from running when he scrambles. He will not have many targets to throw too

    Greg Cooper injured. :sad:

    "CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Running back Graig Cooper is Miami's newest injury concern.

    Cooper missed the Hurricanes' practice Tuesday morning with an apparent lower right leg injury. He was wearing a protective boot.

    The severity was not immediately clear.

    The junior has been Miami's leading rusher in each of his first two seasons. He ran for 841 yards last year and scored touchdowns four ways -- rushing, receiving, passing and returning."

    Growing up in the whole "confidence" UM era, I don't mind playing teams that are "better" than us. I invite it. You have to beat the best to be the best right?

    It should be a fun season.

    Well, we're down to two qb's. Taylor Cook and Cannon Smith are out, according to ESPN News. They both requested to transfer. We've still got A.J. Highsmith, a true freshman, as our only backup. I had high hopes for Cook, guy is 6' 7" and 235 lbs, he could see over everybody. Totally sucks, but we've still got a helluva good team.

    Thought I'd pass along alittle tidbit I heard on a Gator board about this situation. Highsmith's cousin is a regular poster there and said one of the main reasons those two left was coach Shannon and that Highsmith himself wasn't a big fan of the coach either. Don't know how much of that is true, but interesting nonetheless after the Marve "incident".

    Interesting... did he elaborate at all? Or just say that Coach Shannon is not popular? Meaning do they think he can't coach? or just his personality rubs people the wrong way? I am not trying to stir crap... just curious as to why they did/do not like him.

    The Marve "incident" boils down to the kid not wanting to compete. He wanted the job handed to him and that's just not the way it works at Div 1 programs.

    Possibly, but I'm sure there was alot more to it than that, especially after these two guys left. I mean lets be honest here, Shannon doesn't have the best track record with QBs.

    There may have been more to it but Marve still handled it poorly. One factor was he wanted the job handed to him...we know he didn't like competing with Harris. What the other factors were....who knows. The job would have been 100% his if he won it.
