Cav I have no idea if that story I posted te link to is true. Seine posted it on my Facebook page and I thought it would be of interest to the space and I reposted it. That's it.

Old Skool

Solar quit offering sensible perspectives, people get more passionate over useless trivia.

You offer us a tall drink of cool water when we're all used to mainlining Kool-aid.

haha, good ole moon pies. haha

Old Skool

Moon pies absolutely. I actually brought some to a Thanksgiving dinner as a part of a Southern gift basket along with Chow-chow, hot boiled peanuts and chewing tobacco.

It was not one of my better ideas.

Did you used to put peanuts in your RC too?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Old Skool, that's some funny shat right there bro'. lol

PhillyCane

a yes or no would be nice.. bball game link?

Mike Cassano, from FIU, was hired. Coached with Whipple at UMass.

Arthur Brown left the team.

KLCaneFan

Sooo happy the Canes pulled out a win, but faith in Haith... :/

solarcane

Skool,
yea I used to open the end of the little tube bag and let the peanuts slide down into the RC or Coca- Cola.

I never had a clue why we did it but I knew it was tradition and not to be questioned.

Remember when Topp Cola came out with the first 16oz bottle and people said no one could ever drink the entire thing?

What are fountain drinks at gas stations now, around 80 oz lol!

Daytoncane

maybe the Canes don't need televised games. they seem to win more when they're not on tv.

Vince steeler,
When we go to Sam's Club, I look at the industrial size box of Moon Pies and wish I could eat the entire crate of them right there.
If I had a fork lift with me I might even buy a box and take em home. lol

What are the 80s without pictures of me sucking my thumb holding my cabbage patch doll? Thanks for writing an article that made me feel young, Solar!

Packing for Lombardi Gras. I presume bringing your own beads is a faux pau but I'm doing it anyway.

I'll be there soon, Jeremy!!!

solar,

great article. Oh, the good ole' days...

mr troutman

On Arthur Brown Situation...

Yeah he finally caved in after he realize more studs are on the way and he might not see the field. I heard other things went down but it is kept within the U family. He was a prime example on how a 5 star can be the star in another state but can be mediocre in another.

Shannon wanted more physical linebackers so will see if we got what he wanted. i like the guy from gainesville i think Nelson (sorry I don't know everyones name yet but come Sept they'll be household names.

i just want us to have a Big TEN type size lineman and linebackers but Florida type Wrs and Rb and Dbs and we ARE NOW COMPLETE AND READY TO BEAT THE SNOT OUT OF TEAMS AND I MEAN LITERALLY LEAVING THEM SNOTTY.

peace!!!

SOUP

TROUT! Tell 'em how it's gonna be.

MM01 is your man on Kevin Nelson. He will tell U all about him.

FightingIbis

Arthur Brown is a great example of why I put absolutely zero stock in recruiting sites. Wish him all the best but doubt he'll pan out. That darn light just wouldn't come on for him. I guess once he got on the field with football players he realized he'd been playing something different all together there in Kansas.

JCane

Nice win by Haith's boys tonight, although we sure did make the second half exciting, almost blowing the 14 point halftime lead completely. Luckily Dews came through at the end when we needed that bucket to break the tie. The story of the second half was GT dominance, as we were outrebounded, missed FTs, didn't convert well after turnovers and shot poorly (including 1/9 from 3 point-land). Luckily the D was solid and GT wasn't on fire in the second half, or the 14 point lead would have been demolished. Not meaning to take anything away from a nice win over a ranked team, as given the ACC season thus far a win is a win, and they didn't completely cave at the end as they've been prone to do (ie B.C.).

As for the football ticket policies, I agree about the great teams over the last few decades and all, but we're not exactly Penn State, OSU or Mich when it comes to attendance. Folks who have gone to the games through thick and thin, including during the 60s and 70s, shouldn't be discarded suddenly because of a good record and not donating enough. Many football factories fill up the stadium regardless, but the U isn't like that, and this needs to be considered when it comes to marketing. This never has and won't change my love for the U, and I'll still likely end up going to the OSU game, but I don't have to like or agree with the policies.

JCane

Solar and Dayton:

Nice last two articles, guys.

The Truth

Yeah solar - nice job...

solarcane

FightingI,

I hear ya.
When you recruit the best player in the nation from a state that is basically a big dirt field with a Waffle House on one end and a Greyhound Bus Station on the other; well you get what you pay for.

JCane

I see, per Rivals, that A. Chickillo is planning to graduate early. Obviously legacies don't always end up where you'd think (ie like nameless 'turds), but I'd be hard-pressed to believe a third generation would break ranks.

Great night indeed, soup didn't even tase anyone.

of course its early and

nice article solar.

but you know our fans will always live in the past.

pb(CSROH10)

Just got in from the Canes game last night.

They have lots of good young talent but they are in serious need of some coaching on the offensive end.

They had at least 7 second half posessions where they didnt even start their offensive set til there was less than 10 seconds left on the clock.

Even though they won, their offense is shockingly basic and fails to put the ball in the hands of their scorers in a position to make a play.

SOUP

Canez1 and Truth...please be careful with your comments. Your previous posts have been deleted. We are back to running a clean ship here, so please respect that.

Thank U!

Good write up solar, like a VH-1 turn back the clock special

Lemme tell you guys something, esp. those who like the Black Eyed Peas .... they are awful in my opinion. All kinds of awful. Beyond awful. I didn't think they could get any worse - until you hear them LIVE

They were in town tonight at the St. Pete Times Forum. We have a direct feed from the Forum to our station and they used them in our news tonight. They were there with Luda. Couple of the producers had the feed on at their televisions at their desks - wow. You can really tell just how good a band is when they're not on a CD or IPod or radio, hiding all their craptastic-ness with all the synthesized stuff and general "air brushing" of their voices and songs

I would've been livid if I was someone that paid money for that show. It sounded like a bunch of complete tone def drunk idiots in a bathroom, yelling and trying to sing

And no, Fergie is not hot. She reminds me of that squishy faced chick from Greys Anatomy that always squints worse than my Hawai'ian Asian self when she smiles - and that's pretty hard

Six

And props to the Canes for being the only team from the state of Florida that won today in college hoops - beating a top 25 team no less

UiF Crocs lost to South Cackalacka
FSU lost to Clemson
UCF lost to Memphis

lol Six i just heard a Black Eyed Peas song on tv and realize how much i hate them too.

hip hop is dead.

SIX......OFF TOPIC....I don't feel as strongly as U do abouut the "Black eyed Peas" I'v just never been much into music. Wednesday at about 4:45 my wife was watching "OPRA" she had Seline Dione on (wife's fav.. only concert she has ever been to). Opra planned to surprise her last guest (the Canadian Tennors) by having Seline sing with them. I thought they were terriffic when each did solo and even better as a group. Just a heads-up from an old fogie.

I have missed all the out of control bloggers!

You guys know how I feel about the Miami Basketball program. I heard a comment last night about UNC ....no matter the coach UNC is dealing with a bust of a recruiting class. Miami's problems are bigger than that but how true of a statement is that, Roy Williams is great but with bad, lazy players can't do much!

Good win last night for the Canes and the cuse!

Hurricanedave

Posted by: pb(CSROH10) | February 10, 2010 at 10:55 PM

agree 100%

many times it looks like a pick-up game at the local Y ...tough to get young players who have been the go to guy on their high school team to play a role at the college level..that is where the coaching comes in.
Unfortunately, there is only one ball, what you do without the ball is as important as what you do with the ball...pick, screen,box-out & rebound

Missed one. "So now I dare to join me for a peak(peek) into the future where several things are for certain." No big deal.

Also, you forgot the Jim Kelly era. Beating Penn State, the #1 team in the nation, and going to the Peach Bowl, some siad it couldn't get better than that. But it did!

It was a great read and shows that Canes fans CAN do more than just live in the past.

We can even beat ranked basketball teams if we put our minds to it! 8-)

solarcane

Six thanks!

thanks skool,

I was going to go all the way back to sitting in an entire row of the Orange Bowl all by myself watching Ottis tear it up.

The entire point of the article was looking at Universal Studios in your review mirror can make you miss Disney World coming up on your right.

solarcane

Six,
yea a lot of big name talent really sucks when they try and do an acoustical number.


There are few people that sound better live singing something than they do on their records
Whitney Houston singing the National Anthem would be an example of good over terrible.

Amen.

I actually think I am most guilty of living in the future when it comes to the 'Canes!

JSQ

I am not a huge Black Eyed Peas fan but I appreciated how they prophetized about the fate of the 'Canes on Labor Day during the FSWho tailgate. They told me that night was going to be a good night, and it was. ;-)

I admit they slipped in their abilities to tell the future in late December.

That's right . . . the Champs Bowl loss is now the fault of the Black Eyed Peas.

Yeah, you heard me.

It wasn't raining so that must have been it.

Posted by: DATcane |

Schlabach little write up of UM is increadibly lazy and sloppy. Ranking us below UNC and FSU, ok, it's a preseason pick, so who cares.

But to talk about the running back situation, specifically about COOP, who I think would have gone pro were it not for the injury, and then not even mention Damien Berry. Lazy. Shows he really doesn't know much about the team.

Great article Solar.

CCC...I ws thinking the same thing..I mean..#23..with all the offence we having coming back for the second year under Whipple..a healthy j12 (which to me is the difference between 11-1 and 9-3 last year)..and a healthy d...we have to be top 10..imo

usagainsttheworld -- formerly known as 1caneinatl

solar, great post. you took me back down memory lane. i was being recruited by the u in 1985. i attended the notre dame game when they beat the brakes off of them in the orange bown. 58-7 was the final score i think. i was attending miami-killian senior high (played with randall hill) and hubbard alexander was recruting me. i was on the sideline before the game and i remember watching the wr's warm up saying to myself-- there is no way i'd even touch the field here. there was a line of about 9-10 receivers and they were all good!!! much like our guys today. at any rate-- while they were warming up tracey waiters (i think it was him) came jogging by. i stopped him and asked him-- "what is your major?" dude took his mouthpiece out of his mouth, unbuckled his chinstrap, took off his helmet and with a smirk on his face he said "major?!" (laugh) man we major in the NFL!.

got hurt my senior year and i eventually signed with the citadel!

miami was wrecking shop back then. as i watched 30/30 (for the umpteenth time) it is clear to me that the 80's in particular were a different time. the game was different, recruiting was different, and the kinds of players that we could get into the u were different. the u was just flat roguish back in those days. we're more choirboys now. ahhh, those were the days.

I first had the same thought, but then realized that we are in no place to argue rankings... Had we won that bowl game it would be a different story, but we lost.... To Wisconsin...

We have another perfect situation to start the season next year. Take care of business and rankings will take care of themselves.

If you look at our schedule we have 8 games where we can possibly play against a ranked team when we play them:

OSU (will be ranked)
Pitt (will be ranked)
Clemson (could be ranked by October)
FSU (most likely will be ranked in October)
UNC (could be ranked end of Oct)
GT (most llikely be ranked in mid Nov)
VaTech (most likely will be ranked in mid Nov)
USF (could possible be ranked by 11/27)

Solar

I have to agree with all the kudos. Great article. Makes me nostalgic.

While we definitley can't live in the past, I do believe that embracing the way we were then, makes us who we are now. It's a different time, can't get away with the same stuff, but it's all part of who we are.

I think our next NC ties it all together and launches us into a new era. We're almost there - so close I can taste it.

pre83

I should have noted that the give away was that he cites an important factor of Pipho having to be replaced.

Seriously, did he simply look at the depth chart from a web site and write something. He must not get along with Heather...she even knows more!

Umike & Pre

Thanks. The U nor the ACC is not his regular beat, but his intern could've done a better job.

Solar - I, too, really liked your article...Gracias!

As I have posted before, while the U doesn't have the same type of tradition as does a OSU, ND, OU, it has for some time made a point to not let the upcoming classes forget where and how it all started.

It's a bit of a catch 22 for the fans, especially having RS as coach - an individual who has more ties throughout the successful years than any other Cane alive. It's natural to make the connections.

However, I agree that it's time for RS and crew to draw the distinction of their own claim to fame. Butch did it to a degree as the teams at the start of the new millennium were definitely less brash, but certainly just as good.

Let's get it on with a new success for a new decade!

Go Canes!

Cat 5 Cane


Nice stuff Solar and in many ways I agree with you, that comparing teams in the 80's/90's verses today, can't be done.

Yesteryear was a different era, raised from the ambers of hate... That said, It's impossible to compare the deeper motivation to win, compared to today game. Easier schedules played a huge part in comparing wins and losses. Less games played, But, but, but who's looking at that... They don't care.

The Fans say, Just give me a win, Baby!

Canes

Esteban

Black Eyed Peas are an example of a group that when they first came out was one thing and with the edition of a lighter shade singer went pop all the way. They had a chick singing the hook on a number of songs on their first album, definitely wasn't Fergie. Was a different flavor of hip hop. Now its hip pop, electronic pop, whatever.

first song off their first album (or at least first to actually sell anything) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN9muHLuHDc&feature=related

UMike

404...I agree somehwhat with you..we did lose to Wisconsin...but which Miami team lost? It sure wasn't the healthy team that blew out a top 10 GT team. All Im trying to say is..if anyone did their research, knew about our massive injury list on D last year, the very very very important injury to J12 (with no capable back up plan)..all talent returning and coming in..another year under Whipple and Lovett, no changes in Coordinators and am upgrade at D-line coach....would know we deserve better than #23...this is suppose to be based on what we have coming back..not how we finished last year. J12 was a walking bandage lol..our d-line and LB were very thin etc etc to end the season. Just saying..i think based on what we have coming back, we should be higher.

Damn, I look up and there it is... What USA said!
