"Susie" is an extremely persuasive woman and she would like that. Somehow she has this seductive way of being able to convince women of things. Be careful.

Anyway, that was interesting.

Sorry Soup. Blast from the past. Won't happen again.

I'm glad it did though :-)

JSQ

I didn't even realize that was a real person - I thought it was another (male) blogger making a joke in reference to your South Beach comments, Truth! Oops!

When Johnathan Vilma put the Nebraska TE to sleep on that hit, that .. was .. nasty

It's all good, after U connected I deleted the comments. No harm, no foul. Just be careful that's all.

So you wouldn't REALLY put up a fight for me??!! LOL

I did too...but the Spanish was written in a manner that recognised instantly. It was legit.

Posted by: Six | February 08, 2010 at 01:37 PM

U "think" or U know? I need an actual guess or official count. Which one is 33?

ten canes have won both a suberbowl and a national champioship!

Six or anyone else...if U have a photo (or can find one) of the Vilma hit in the Rose bowl, email it to me ASAP.

JSQ

Friends from New Orleans are posting pictures from last night.

WILD time. CRAZY pictures. I would tell you what some stranger (a woman) came up and did to my friend (wearing a black and gold sequined bra) on Bourbon Street, but I don't want to get in trouble by 86.

Let's just say it involved another term for a water vessel you might use on a lake.

Can't wait to get there in 3 days!!!

Peter...welcome to The Space. Post here, post often!

12 canes have won a Sb and a Nation title including vilma and shock.

Well now you are just trying to make me jealous.

GRRRRRRRRRRR!

The Truth

I have to try to get some things done...I'll be back later

Soup: I tried a Balvenie 15 year that's not too harsh on the wallet that is excellent. The 12 year is nice, too especially at about $40 a bottle.

Not sure if you've tried that but it's a nice change from the usual.

pb(CSROH10)

Anyone going to the GT game Wednesday night?

Love the title and great article. That's what great about the U - how many other schools can make these claims on a yearly basis?

In a couple of years, we'll be replenishing/restocking NFL-U with regularity.

As far as your rules, that's what makes this space great. I know I'm not the perfect blogger but hey, I sure don't want to end up at the SS, so whenever I'm really po'd, like I've heard many times, best to take a step back from the keyboard and think; 'nuff said.

Six,

Are you counting some of the more senior canes, like Otto, Hendricks, Ottis Anderson, etc.

...and don't forget Shockey counts for two.

CanadianCane

46 Canes now have SB rings (Shockey has one from NYG...47 if you count Curtis Johnson WR Coach)

The Truth

Just kidding Mary...I would hate to be a part of an off-color email chain of pics that include half ( or full) naked shots of friends in precarious positions!!!

Not me... LOL

Ben Zajicek was the TE for Nebraska that got put to sleep by Vilma when he hit him

Textbook hit, perfect killshot

canechic

I hope everyone is good today cuz I love everyone even when we do not agree!

On a sadder note may have to make a run to the 305 my Dad is having some complications from the Chemo.

The game last night was kinda of surreal, Nick says I feel that way because it really was a fast game...I am just happy the Saints won.

pb(CSROH10)

Truth I just sent you an email of a pic I love.


Sent it to Mary earlier this week. Hadn't seen it in forever, found it last week in my saved pics, and I thought you'd enjoy it as well.

Unfortunaly, i now live in Atlanta. Anyboud coming up for the Miami - Tech game this year?

Vilma was the man last night. It's amazing what a middle linebacker can do for a defense when they are in complete control of the entire defense. Makes U wonder when the Canes are gonna have another dominant leader on defense.

Canadian where did U get that? U win Canespace gear! Email me at:

canespace86@aol.com

Six

86 - I only put 33 b/c 3+3=6

My final guess is 36 Cane players, not coaches included, have won a Super Bowl ring

37, including the Saints WR coach

86Cane

12 canes have won a Sb and a Nation title including vilma and shock.

Posted by: peter | February 08, 2010 at 01:42 PM

Peter, for that U win Canespace gear also!

Email me at: canespace86@aol.com

Does that final number include Cane coaches? Or is it just players ... the Cowboys staff under Jimmy Johnson has more rings than some of the NFL franchises

CanadianCane

86,

You have mail

I just thought he was talking to himself.

It's so awesome that Canes fans everywhere are celebrating Shockey and Vilma's Super Bowl victory!

Makes this song pop into my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSDh94eQTAk

Miami Hurricanes have also scored more touchdowns in the Super bowl than any other college.

Bill Miller, Oakland (scored 2) Pete Banaszak, Oakland, Ottis Anderson, New York Giants (2) Michael Irvin, Dallas (2) Jimmie Jones, Dallas Duane Starks, Baltimore Ravens Devin Hester, Chicago Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis, Jeremy Shockey New Orleans

Georgia's lakes are rivers or streams that have been dammed on the downstream side flooding the adjacent valleys.
Most of the lakes have small towns, rail road tracks, road beds in the bottoms.

pb,
I just got this particular kayak, but yes it is stable enough to stand and cast from.
I'll have plenty of pics when the water is a few degrees warmer.
Hopefully you will be fishing from it this summer too.

I'll be at GT and Clemson this year
Clemson isn't a bad ride from Atlanta.

I see the total superbowl rings goes up every hour.


I'm gonna go with 227 Canes have rings, cause I have to go back out for awhile.

"It's amazing what a middle linebacker can do for a defense when they are in complete control of the entire defense."

Great point Ginn & Tonic, I think next to the QB position, that's the most important element that Miami has been missing these last few years. I don't know if you saw it, but did you see Ray-Ray mic'd up at the Pro Bowl, THAT'S HOW YOU RUN A DEFENSE! It's like I've said before, I think most of Miami's MLBs were thrown into the fire early in their careers, and I'm hoping this Nelson kid has the goods to do just that...We'll see

Six

solar - that kayak is badass. I've always wanted to get one. I used to get all jacked up anytime my parents would want to take the canoe out when we'd go camping ... I dunno, it's in my pineapple laced DNA to just get in a boat and paddle like a madman. My parents would always have to compensate for my paddling in the boat, they'd both have to stay on the same side while I'd paddle on the other - just so the boat wouldn't start turning too far one way

solarcane

Six,

I started with a Canoe, went to a Jon Boat, then a Bass Boat, back to a Canoe then to kayak and now to a sit on top fishing kayak.


The kayak is by far the closest to "being with nature" experience I've had.
There is something incredibly fundamental and humble about being 4 inches off the water and gliding so silently you can hit fish with the bow before they move.

JCane

BG:

Nice list for potential recruits for next year. It's a lot sexier than 2010's, huh? :) Some of those guys could be amazing skill position targets.

As for S. Henderson, I'd originally thought his antics would make sure we'd not bother, but I'm inclined to think we'd give him a chance if the stars aligned properly. Brown was an issue last year, of course, but then we took guys like K. Winslow years earlier who worked out just fine. If SH is being as straight as possible with Stout then I'd think we'd probably give him the shot if the stars align.

mr troutman

SOup,

I promise to keep it sports and not get too deep into politics.

I love the U and the Space so i can't get banned from my U family.

Anyways i'll keep it real only with the U and will refrain from posting anything else.

Peace!

shout out to Trout. I missed all the drama, but welcome back.

Trout...I UN-banned your other IP address. U are cleared for landing. Blog on!

DallasTX Cane

BTW - Nice article 86. And, U keep running Ur blob the way U want it run! Thats Ur right and, while occasionly frustrating (usually when I've missed something), what has made this site so successful. Its a great source of CANE news, discussion and a general connection to SFL for all of us banned to living somewhere other than Paradise. Thank U for that.

Thank U for that.

No, thank U!

Just read a case cited by opposing counsel in a brief that is the equivalent of a croc making fun of Warren Sapp spending the weekend in jail.

I've really got no good comeback for it.

YET . . . !

Canesbrewing

Troutman, don't post often but have always enjoyed your comments.

SOUP

OK, we have several blog articles contributed by Canespacers that will run this week.

Dayton will run on Tuesday night at 8 PM.

DZ8 will run in Thursday night at 8 PM.

UMike and CSM...I am holding your player articles out for now until I figure out what to do on that from UM.

mr troutman

I was just thinking ..

This years class is what was needed at the U. We have the skill players but lack some tough minded Lineman and linebackers. I could of wish we got two more stud corners to tighten up our secondary but U can't have it all... That will come next year when we have room for 15- 20 skill postion players.

To see us get mauled in the Wisconsin game was mainly because we lack a lot of physical lineman. I\Our line will average 6'5 300 pounds next year and that has NFL road graders all over it. I know Shannon is finally saying to himself " Now this is starting to look like how i visioned it when i took over ". Yeah Shannon has recieved a lot of heat over the years for his lack of HC experience but just like Fox said he changed THE U atmosphere when he took over. All i can say is when a person does this only time will tell when that person reaps their rewards from hard work.

We as fans tell other fans to be patient but some go on Death Ears anyway. Some don't want to wait for improvement they won't it all now. Similiar to how us Americans want to be back to work ASap knowing that so many jobs were lost. Coker, and after this year i won't bring him up anymore..really put us in a bind and Shannon and staff had to get us out. What if Miami didn't hire Shannon where would we be?

All i am saying Ladies and Gents...This was a long road to recovery. I said WAS because we ain't at that crucial stage anymore when we would hope we just show up to games. We were damn near a school about to be like Notre Shame. We were about to be the mighty College Football Empire that fell by the way side but oh no wait..... We were about to then Shannon took over TO CHANGE THINGS and just like anything worth waiting for in life....... IT TAKES TIME.

Just saw this on twitter (/ducks for cover from Truth)

There's been a lot of talk about me coaching at the U, but is the U ready for ol' K-Dorsal?

Yay Trout!!!!

Vilma was reading offenses he was the QB of the defense last night.....May be the next Ray Lewis?

Go Canes!

DZ8

Am I the only one who heard the Urban Meyer was sleeping with a 21 year old co-ed rumor this morning?

It was on the sports junkies radio show I think. They said the person they heard it from "would know", and that it won't be in the papers for awhile. They mentioned how it made sense for urban to have a heart issue than be good to go pretty quickly (I'm no Dr. but a heart is kind of important, no?). Also they mentioned that Tebow in his final press conference thanked the coaching staff but never urban by name.


Maybe I'm wrong, figured this would be all over the news.

Extra, extra... get your floriduh rumors...

DallasTX Cane

don't know canechic...Ray Lewis is one of a kind. not only a HOF player, but possibly the best of the best ever at his position. I'd like to see Vilma become/acknowledged as the best in the League. But, IMHO, a Ray Lewis is a once in a generation kind of guy. Our parents talk about Ditka; we'll always talk about Ray Lewis.

I do think Vilma will get more pub due to his SB performance though.

DZ8

I can't find anything on google. Dam Chineese government!

splarfy

The 21 year old co-eds name isn't Tim is it? Everything is starting to make sense now.

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

Congrats to both J.Shock and J. Vilma!!!!!

Gin & Tonic

Wonder if Meyer promised her the starting tight end position when he was recruiting her. Poor Timmy must be crushed that his coach found a new squeeze.

False.

Tebow is 22.

DZ8

Never mind. I can't find anything else to support that story.

I got all excited thinking I was breaking news to The Space.

Back to regular programming... welcome back Trout.

Esteban

okay, i'm exhausted. i spent almost 4 hours digging my car out. did Cassano get hired already?

Esteban

and anyone know what's up with Epps? Was supposed to play in the Texas vs Nation game, but didn't. Shields played though.

Esteban

and caught this on Bruce Feldman's blog...

• Former USF assistant Bernard "Tiger" Clark is back in the Big East, hired as new linebackers coach at Pittsburgh, reports Greg Auman:

"To be a part of a program so rich in tradition as that, it's huge," said Clark, 43, a Leto graduate who coached at USF for the 2006 season. "It's a great opportunity for me." Clark is reunited with Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt, who was defensive coordinator at Miami when he played linebacker there in the late 1980s. Since his year at USF, Clark spent two seasons as defensive line coach at Florida International before going to Hampton last summer.

Esteban

oh and apparently 86 needs to revise the blog...he missed someone.


• The Saints' Super Bowl win was another huge moment in what has been a very star-crossed football career for CB Glenn Sharpe. If the name sounds familiar, it's because seven years ago Sharpe was the freshman defensive back flagged on the controversial delayed call that extended the Fiesta Bowl, a game which Ohio State later won. Sharpe subsequently blew out his left knee in 2003 and then his right not long after recovering from his previous ACL tear. He kept battling to get back on the field and was the recipient of the 2006 Brian Piccolo Award as the most courageous player in the ACC. Then, one week before the 2008 NFL combine, he pulled a muscle and couldn't run. He went undrafted and he has bounced around a bit since leaving UM.

How much? Just look at this roller-coaster ride he's been on:

Signed by Atlanta as an undrafted free agent, 4/28/08.
Waived by Atlanta, 8/29/08.
Signed to Atlanta practice squad, 8/31/08.
Signed to Atlanta active roster from practice squad, 12/9/08.
Waived by Atlanta, 9/4/09.
Signed to Atlanta practice squad, 9/6/09.
Released from Atlanta practice squad, 9/14/09.
Re-signed to Atlanta practice squad, 9/21/09.
Placed on Atlanta Falcons' practice squad/injured list, 10/27/09.

Less than one month ago, Sharpe was signed to the Saints' practice squad. He didn't play in any of the games, but will get a Super Bowl ring for being part of the Saints as they won the game in Sharpe's hometown.

Trout you went off yesterday? Hang in there bro the legion needs you!

Canechic, prayers going out for your father!

mr troutman

Thanks for the love everyone.. I know i don't post often but i appreciate that you all like my NON politcal posts or at least some of you..LOL... Sometimes I am just TOO REAL for MYself.... Yeah right. I'm a realist and a true defender of the U...Gotta love someone like me.. I take on all controversal issues. U know i wouldn't have it any other way.. I'm Trout...LOL

CanesFanStuckInCali

One thing I liked about the Saints attack yesterday was how Brees killed them slowly but surely without having to throw deep. One of the announcers even praised Brees and Sean Payton's "patience" since they were so used to going deep but had to take what the defense gave them yesterday in order to pull through.

Patience is something that The Whip and Jacory could benefit from, IMO. We scored a lot of points last year, but a lot of those points came off of big plays and we were often unable to sustain drives by switching to the short stuff.

If The Whip could somehow learn to balance his attack when necessary, it would keep defenses guessing. Hopefully the OL is better this year (it HAS to be better, right?) so that we can run the ball well too, which will help us balance our attack even more (short pass, long pass, run in random order as opposed to last year's long pass on 1st THEN run, which became predictable and didn't phase the good defensive teams).

Is it September yet?

GO CANES!!!!

elliott

Glenn Sharpe. If the name sounds familiar, it's because seven years ago Sharpe was the freshman defensive back flagged on the controversial delayed call that extended the Fiesta Bowl, a game which Ohio State later won.

Again I have had conversations with current High School coaches,college coaches, referees, Div 1 and 2 College football players, college football followers and anybody else who saw that game and most importantly that play. ALL of them have said Glen Sharpe played perfect coverage and that the ball was intially thrown way too high to even be considered catchable. Not sure what Terry Porter was thinking but they gave Ohio State that game...
