Weeeeeeee!!

CGNC

I have been at 9-3 for months

VA Cane

Boom Bam!!! 2nd is just the first to lose!!! per Mr. Dale Earnhardt!!! Congrats Ohio, you deserve a first for keeping up up to date with recruiting posts!!!

Ohio_Cane

Not my first 1st, and won't be my last, VAC! =)

That said, it's game day! LET'S GO HEAT!!

Ohio_Cane

RE: This article's question at the end.

My answer: Cane's go no worse than 10-2.

SOUP

Ohio...Nice FIRST and thanks for weighing in with your prediction for "The Vault". I'll add a poll later, not time right now.

Great article. I know canechic is disappointed like the rest of us over the past 4-5 seasons in addition to the reports she receives on players actions on campus. I respect canechic's passion and after having my emotions and wallet Fu--ked with supporting the U I am from the show me state of mind at this time. If we go 9-3 next year I will be a happy fan. Canez1 u better marry that fine ass girl!

roachcane77

Definitely put down in the OVER category...

Canes win at least 10 in 2011!

canechic

OMG Soup! LOL!!!!

Well I can only be who I am and tragically that is how I feel. I want more than 5 winds but my cane meter, my gut, says no. Oh and the little birdie says it will be a very sad :( football year. And this makes that birdie very sad.

Soup knows what a huge cheerleader she once was too.

Now if someone could please fix my dog, I am afraid she is so sick that no one can and truly that is what is breaking my heart right now. :(

Will Miami win more or less than 7 games in 2011?

Posted at 12:00 PM | Permalink


********************************************

I wil say more than 7 but not by much. I am going with 8 - 4 this year and 10-2 next year.

BTW - after reading the article, I feel it could be worse. I mean, we could be O Scandal U fans.

raizecane

CC - sorry to hear about the pooch....if it was a cat, that's one thing, but when a dog is ill.....it's tough.

(oh I can hear the cat fans now..... LOL).

welcane

Maybe it's the fan in me, but I think the 'Canes will will MORE than 7 games this season. 10-2 or 9-3 is my prediction. Hopefully we will get more production from the QB position this year and I'm banking on the defense to learn how to tackle.

From what I've heard/read, Michigan and Michigan St. are the teams to beat right now. They're willing to take his teammate, WR Dewayne Stanford, which is apparently a big deal to him. UM is on his list, but I'd venture a guess that we're 3rd on his list right now.

I have no idea if Golden is making a push for him, or even wants him badly.

Here's an article from a few Ohio analysts - http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20110609/OPINION03/106090302/1420/OPINION0360/U-M--MSU-might-move-up-in-bid-for-Ohio%E2%80%99s-Adolphus-Washington

canechic

raize it is bad Angry and I are hand feeding her a mixture of pureed rice and chicken 3xs a day just to keep her alive. She has refused to eat. She had a bacterial infection but everything else is normal. Now it is time for a specialist and it is quite a steep price. If no change tomorrow however we will have to make some tough decisions. My heart is just broken.

Ohio_Cane

CC - Sorry to hear about your dog. It's always hard to lose a friend and family member even if that friend/family member is a pet. I've been thru it a few times with dogs.

Best of luck.

DDiaz

While I think they will be better overall, I think there is a lot expected from this team. That checklist of 7 things sounds well and good, but why should we be led to believe it WILL change? Behavior isn't a light switch. It takes time to create better habits. One offseason won't just completely change some of these kids. All this NEW doesn't always spell success for teams. Is it reasonable to seek a 10-4 season like FSU, yeah. But it's not unreasonable to think they struggle a bit and go just make a December bowl. My opinion, they'll be in play for the ACC, but just miss the game. With a strong push for it in 2012.

Hurri

The only things stopping this squad from being AT LEAST 9-3, are the kid's sh!tty dispositions that CC has been petitioning against.....

The only team on that schedule that I see being hands down better than us, is FSU. (Sorry.....but I calls em like I sees em)

A patented 4-pick game by Jacory will likely cost us a game somewheres down the road, and another as a result of brand new coaches and coordinators, but if these kids play with even a fraction of heart and discipline, that's about as had as it SHOULD get.

DDiaz

Hey CC - is the dog only refusing to eat? Any vomiting? Had a pup do that and it was Parvo. Does the dog roam outside a lot? Final step is blood out the pooper. Lots of it. Blood transfusion CAN save it, if that's the case ($5K)

macjones de Albuquerque

Keep hope alive! That's all.

Yeah, yeah it's evident from past takes, that approximately SIXTY-FIVE (65%) of U-all Cane rowdies have sUspect opinions about the honorable Reverand Jackson.

But I's just had to borrow his cliche... err trUism, Eh.

Now, IF the major college pigskin preternatural deities reign some favorable fortUne o'er Miami, then it's possible to see a 9-3 regUlar season in the Golden Man's inaugural-sp season.

Otherwise, U-all Hurricane rUffians are looking at 8-4 this fall.

By the way, aU contraire to most Cane fandom's opinion. The Monday night Maryland road game will be a preview of what possible season Miami, F-L-A will have. Get outta' here.

Simply because the Turtle absolutely believes they can defeat a Cane football squad. Say it ain't so, Bozo.

Bon jour

Sarasota 'cane

I just read that Nevin Shapiro was sentenced to 20 years in prison a couple of days ago. It would seem to me that even if he does write a book about UM athletics he would not have much credibility without some kind of smoking gun proof. The FBI has already passed on the dirt he was slinging. Anyone have any thoughts on the subject?

Go 'canes!

Herbieibis

Hope is springs eternal.
I hope Golden can turn this cluster crap around.
I hope these guys will play 4 Quarters for him.
I hope Jaboney realizes that he plays for Miami & stops throwing the ball to the other team.
I hope the receivers can catch the ball.
I hope we can get the refs to keep their rags in their back pocket.
I hope we realize that is okay to take sometime instead of give.
I hope we play with some damn motivation & passion.
I hope we finally play to our potentialand quit playing down to the competion because who else has more overall talent than us except maybe FSU & OSU.
I hope we go for the endzone more when we are in the redzone.
I hope we go better than 7 & 6.
I hope we recuit better than we have.
Last I hope I no more about football than a chic, enough so that I believe we have a chance with some breaks to go undefeated. more realistically probably 10-2 because we'll choke somewhere along the line.
I hope Golden is truly Golden.
I hope we can tackle better.

DDiaz

A lot of hope for that bold 10-2 prediction.

Ohio_Cane

Mike Farrell - Five-star Stefon Diggs will try to visit #Cal, #SouthernCal, #Auburn and #Miami over the next month or so.

Da U N Houston

I think the first 4 games will be a tell all on how are season and confidence will go. If we start off 4-0 which we can and I believe we will:
- Maryland HC first year, new starting RB (though he is a good back), both starting WR's gone, new cb, etc
- OSU......need to watchout for the us against the world mentality
- Kansas State need to tame these Cats early and take the fight out of them
- BC, we have to get the young guys in the game

I don't see why we can't go 4-0, just gotta go and do it. So yes I see us winning more then 7!

Ohio_Cane

- OSU......need to watchout for the us against the world mentality

Posted by: Da U N Houston | June 09, 2011 at 02:24 PM
------------------------------------------

This is gonna be our toughest game out of those first 4, even without Pryor and Sweater-Vest.

What we're gonna have to watch out for is this true freshman, Braxton Miller. This kid is good. All-Ohio honors, etc.

Similar style to Pryor. He's smaller than Pryor (6'2, 190), and can't run AS good, but he still a gifted runner. However, he's a better passer than Pryor.

I don't see Miller starting game 1, but I think he ends up taking over for Bauserman by the time they play us.

canechic

DDiaz she has a bacterial infection(I think from swimming in the lake) which started with vomiting and diarrhea, she has been on antibiotics and iv fluids. She stopped the vomiting but refuses to eat. No obstructions shown on Xrays and all blood tests came back negative and normal. Dr is stumped so she wants us to go to a specialist but that is major $$$ even just for the visit. I have already put out close to $800.

I hope to know more about football than a chic? Really?

I can see why a doUr girl would believe yoUr Canes could possibly finish with a .500 regUlar season record.

Because question marks surround the above listed opponents.

In other words, the A.C.C. schedule makers didn't do Miami any favors, again.

mi@mic@ne

Golden is doing more than motivating these young playas.. hes putting through a routine that shocks their body. They will have the physical reserves to bring it in the 4th q. These are still just kids so they can still be molded into winners in my opinion.

The best way to change their character is to bring them to the brink of quitting and then pull back. The season is long so there is plenty of time to replace the bad eggs. I know Golden will not put up with the guys who let us down. The 4th quarter will be ours again. Every game is winnable. This is the U.

Big Daddy Cane

10-2 for the Canes

I liked this entire statement so much, I just had to re-quote it.

As SOUP would say, "There IT is right there!!"

Big Daddy Cane

Defense- we need improved tackling. We also need guys to stay in their assigned lanes, which means they need added muscle to not get pushed around.

Offense- We need to reduce int's and penalties dramatically.

Special Teams- I'd like to see better coverage on punts and kickoffs. I think we need a punter and a kicker and a kickoff specialist like NORMAL teams...not one guy doing it all.

Get that done and we will be 10-2.

VA Cane

I hope to know more about football than a chic? Really?

This is not a chic...this is canechic...though I have never met her in person, I have read her thoughts, feelings and insights to UM football since the beginning of Canespace. I read it for a long time before I ever said a word... She knows players and UM football...as much as anybody. Her insight is pretty spot on. I do not have to defend her; her words need no defending. She knows UM football!!! not JMO....fact!!

canechic

Thanks VA cane :)

And Big Daddy Cane good point who is kicking?

mi@mic@ne

We lost last yr because in the tough games we folded in the fourth q like a cheap suit. Even against FSU.
In the tough games we will keep it close until the fourth q and then do some things to pull it out.
Even if Golden sits the lazy azzes .. i still think he can get more out of the young guys than we seen in yrs.

10-2 is my prediction but like canechic i agree with the Barry Jackson article earlier this week saying that many juniors and seniors are so immature on this team including Jacory the clown Harris on the front line...

Herbieibis

Canechic,
I'm not doubting your overall knowledge of the program, it's just a mucho macho comment to make. I feel your pain with this program and it sickens me to see us get beat by these wanna be football teams in the ACC, aside from FSU & Va. Tech nobody has been consistantly good, well maybe Clemson in the 80's to a certain extent, but losing to Virginia, is terrible.

Montreal-Cane

CGNC do you have an update on Sid the kid...
We hear all kinds of rumours...I hope he will be back for the start of the 2011-2012 season...The kid is so good for the game, the Pens and the NHL.

Big Daddy Cane

CC, I'd like to see Wieclaw on fg's and extra points. Hopfinger on kickoffs, and either Dean or the new kid on punts.

CC, certainly there are gonna be a few growing pains with those kids, but like Butch Davis did when he was coach here, we have to remainpatient as these kids perfect their craft. WE SHOLD NOT PRESS THE PANIC BUTTON.

Big Daddy Cane

He's cleared for off-ice workouts, and has been working out in his home town, as usual in the off-season. He'll be fine for training camp and the season, barring any hits to the head. Lol

Big Daddy Cane

oh and by the way...if we can get a guy like Cory White TE 6-6 275 to practice route running with the wr's he can be a very important cog in us smashing FSU this year. That would make him a matchup nightmare for most teams.

So sorry about your dog, I remember mine stopped eating, we brought him into our room, gave him a bath, and talked to him soothingly. Then we lay with him, petting and talking to him about the pool and tennis balls. He relaxed, and I figured that was good news, maybe he was just blocked, but it turned out he was gone. Tore us apart, but I was glad we gave him home treatment versus letting a vet do their thing. First time our sons experienced death.

Have you checked the web for some home remedies? People have succeeded many times with holistic cures on their pets. And some antibiotics will work on dogs as well as with people.


Best of luck!

Rumor time - "I have a very reliable source who clubs and drinks with all of the athletes that come through Orlando. He was all over the Tiger Woods issue and knew what all happened with Tiger prior to it being released publicly. My buddy has a place in Orlando, Lake Nona to be exact, and he lives among some athletes that live there in Orlando. Needless to say he golfs, drinks, and parties with some of the best people in central Florida. So when word got to him while at the bar last night, he called me. Word got out while drinking with friends, that Rashard Lewis slept with Lebrons girl while visiting South Beach."

Canes fans...Meet Stephen Morris

Playing football has given me an opportunity to have fun, to learn to be more of a mature man, and to handle adversity differently.

The Golden Era should be the best era. It's going to be fun.

I was raised to be a mature man. A gentleman. My mom and dad did an extremely good job and I'm very grateful for that.

The attention I put to details is really big, especially for me.

The U means a lot more than just putting your hands together; I learned that over the years. It's a lot about hard work, dedication, commitment, and family.

Pass rushers will never get to me, never! I'd rather get tackled by a linebacker than a fat lineman (laughs).

I secretly wish that I could fly. I really want to fly. I would go anywhere and everywhere.

Competition brings out the best in you. Everybody needs it on the team to get better. You can't stay complacent.

Everybody can criticize me, the way I play, anything. But at the end of the day, it's just going to be me playing, so you take it and move on. You can't let it get to you; you have to have thick skin to play football.

My definition of my experience here at the U is one that I will cherish for the rest of my life. One that's made me a better person. And one that I love. It's all about family here, there's no one else.

I love watching Tom Brady. He throws the best balls, and the way he handles himself, any pass that he throws I'm there watching. I watch a lot of his film. He and I are completely different in terms of footwork and the way we play, but I try to imitate him in preparation and leadership and all the intangibles of being a quarterback.

In the pocket it's your own little quiet zone. When you get the ball, everything just freezes. It's just you, and you can only hear the linemen yelling and you have to make a decision.

I've learned to become a better person, more mature, and handle things a lot differently. Becoming more of a man of God, and be more in my faith, without letting anything distract me or get me away from what I'm trying to accomplish. From those given, much will be expected.

I had no idea that when Coach Golden said we would get to another level of conditioning, we would get to another level of conditioning (laughs).

We're the only team playing on opening weekend. That's a statement game. I can't wait.




Ungar

Also, canechic, I understand your feeling on the Canes. I bet a bunch of others do, as well. i used to live and breathe Dolphins, with hope bursting from my young heart at having the best QB and the best Coach, and having that young heart stepped on by the Bills. Then the Bills go away, and the Pats get in the way. And for years now, they are rudderless, and no longer have the best QB or the best coach.

Over time, I haven't left the bandwagon, but I sure don't start the season counting wins, reading the preseason mags for a glimpse of a clue as to why we will win it all, and figuring out if the entension road to 836 will be called the Tony Sporano Expressway or the Bill Parcells Expressway.

The loss of hope makes me feel older. So I instead throw my hope onto the Canes. Still young, still get my heart ripped out each year.

11-3. Losing to FSU twice, the usual annoying loss to rip out my heart, and then WINNING the bowl game just to build my hopes up for next year. (Remember when Nevada did that?)

Bianca Eichkorn Earns Another Academic All-America Honor
Miami's all-time winningest student-athlete garners honor for the second straight year


Capital One Academic All-America Team

CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Former University of Miami women's tennis student-athlete Bianca Eichkorn has been named to the 2011 Capital One Academic All-America Team, as selected by CoSIDA and announced by the organization on Thursday.

It marks the second straight year Eichkorn earned All-America honors (University Division At-Large) from CoSIDA and the third straight year she earned All-District honors, as she was named to District 3's First Team for the 2010-11 academic year.

"As successful as Bianca was here throughout her career on the tennis courts, she equaled that performance in the classroom," head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. "You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone over the last four years as dedicated as she was to her education and ultimately, this program."

Eichkorn graduated in May with a 3.80 GPA and a degree in International Finance and Marketing. She earned Dean's List honors all eight semesters she was enrolled at UM and was named the ACC's 2010 Scholar Athlete of the Year (this year's winner has yet to be announced).

In addition to her performance in the classroom, Eichkorn closed out her career as Miami's all-time winningest singles player for both the men's and women's programs with 133 career victories. She also owns the school record for the most combined singles and doubles victories in a career with 241.

This past season, she earned ACC Player of the Year honors after going a perfect 11-0 against ACC opponents during the regular season, with 10 of her 11 wins coming in straight sets. She closed out the season with a team-best 33 singles wins and a dual match record of 22-4 in Miami's No. 1 position.


In doubles, she went 32-5 overall and 24-2 in dual match play at No. 1 alongside Anna Bartenstein.

Eichkorn was joined by nine others on District 3's University Division First Team and by 14 others on the All-America second team. Last season, she earned first team All-District and third team All-America honors.

The women's At-Large program for Academic All-America includes the sports of bowling, crew, fencing, golf, gymnastics, field hockey, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, tennis and water polo.

Vince I'm on it!!! Lol

CC So sorry to hear about ur dog. Extremely tough thing to go through.

I had a dog pass about 6 or 7 yrs ago and I am still not over it.

Very sad to lose a member of the family like that.

Hopefully she turns it around. Keep ur head up sista

:)!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

mi@mic@ne

Most of the games ... at least i was ... knowing the style we are accustom to... looking for the guy in the crunch time who breaks into the back field and separates the ball from the qb... or the lb who finds himself on an island who is the last guy ... running the back down and making the tackle.

Jh leading the team for a winning touch... finding the open guy... our running backs breaking the tackle and picking up 15 to take us down into their red zone. Just the 4th quarter plays that we need to make us winners.

canechic

Thanks Ungar, I am hoping for the best. She is an inside dog and only goes for walks with us but about 3 weeks ago I let her go into the lake. I really regret that decision because this is when all the trouble started slowly happening. But she has no parasite just the bacteria was found. Now it is just sad to see a dog who ate everything in site eat nothing. Breaks my heart and I feel responsible. :(

And as far as my feelings about next year, it truly is not so much with Golden, although I think it way too early to call him "the savior", my problem lies with some of the players and yes it is more rather than less that I have a problem with.

I think it will be two years before a good season comes back to us Cane fans. Hope and optimism is great but I want results for a change. And I Know change takes time.

Ah, don't worry about the cat fans. All they say is "who's my widdle mooshy mooshy moo"? and "She thinks she's people!"

I like how Jeff Foxworthy says it.

"I have two cats. One on each side of the fireplace."

j/k cat lovers!!

Ungar

solar, it sounds like Morris is talking like a starter.

canechic, if Morris takes the starting job over Harris, will you adjust your numbers?

I might adjust mine up to 12-2, with an ACC title as we beat the overconfident Noles for the ACC title.

Mmmm, this orange kool aid is delicious, you should really try a sip. Electrolytes, sugars, and a rosier outlook on the season with every sip!

VA Cane

Agreed Big Daddy. Many times against the run, I see our guys turning their backs getting crushed, being blown open sideways (Forston gets high he gets blasted as do most)arm tackling, or hitting and bouncing due to not wrapping up. A big hit may look great, but if you do not wrap a good back he moves on. We looked so small on D last year, hope we have worked on size and strength.We gave up too many long runs last year...we ranked high in some categories...but for the most part we were very inconsistent.

Special teams could be a nightmare without Bosher. We need deep kicks and high punts, and lots of hustle...good tackling.

Offense good backs, good line. Who will QB..will it matter. I do not see J12 doing it....he is a manager...at best...QB play and turnovers will be a big big key to the season. Penalties were horrible...must improve.

I saw the UVa game a week after my Dad died...I hoped it would make me feel better....it was another funeral....we were pretty bad except for Morris...J12 got rocked. I know the UVa coach, and Morgan Moses my lineman plays there....but that was an embarrassing loss....kind of like the last OB game. We owe them several beat downs they really embarrassed us those games.

Big Daddy Cane

True VA CANE. But i also think AG is all over it. He couldnt get rid of all the troubled players at once, but I think he got rid of the most aggregious ones, the worst of the worst on the team.

Ohio_Cane

I love watching Tom Brady. He throws the best balls, and the way he handles himself, any pass that he throws I'm there watching. I watch a lot of his film.

Love this. He could do a lot worse than preparing and leading like TB12.

Ungar

canechic, what an ugly coincidence! We are pretty sure canal water is what got ours. He could swim like an alligator, sneaking up on ducks as he swam with no splash or ripple. 12 years of exciting chases that we knew would do no harm.

But one time, as he was climbing out, his paw got stuck in his collar, and he must have swallowed a little of the canal water. Days later, we were where you are. I am glad Angry got back before things went downhill.

360Cane

Hey there. My cat could kick any of your dog's asses.

We have two labs so the neighborhood strays dontmess with our cat. She's known as thedog ruler in the neighborhood so other cats don't step. It's kind of funny actually.

VA Cane

I think AG...and this staff...with the great A Kehoe will bring back pride, conditioning, and discipline. I think there will be more coaching, hands on...and sometimes in your face coaching....and the guys who want it will step up...leaders will lead....and more of the bvad apples will reveal themselves for what they are.

VA Cane

Big Daddy Cane

Q: on cansport there was a commit that was reportedly 75% committed, do you know who that is?

A: I think CS reported that Carter was 75% committed. That appears to be false, word is they twisted his words and he is 100% committed to UM. I guess his parents were only 75% behind his commitment because they hadn't been to campus yet (or something similar to that).

ftmcane

agreed that J. Harris is one of the clowns on this team. I'm sure everyone is used to his typical WTF facial expression on the sideline. Any determined qb, especially when they're down or have made a huge mistake in a game are usually standing on the sideline helmet on ready to get back in to re-deem themselves. His typical spot is sitting on the bench, with the facial expression of someone who just had their lunch stolen. No fire in this guy. Other than that he seems quite nice.

I'm standing at the counter of the visitor center at Unicoi State Park.

Two ladies about 40ish, bleached blonde, , tennis visors,too much lipstick, and wearing everything Abercrombie and Fitch sells for day hikes to the mall are opening their bottles of chilled water and emptying some Crystal Light granules into them, one says to the other "Who ever thought of this was a genius."

The 70ish volunteer lady behind the counter winks at me and forms the words "Koo Aid?" with her lips then rolls her eyes at the real wives of Atlanta.

I think BD Cane is right about Golden not being able to snuff every bad apple in one execution.

He is the new head coach and what he says goes, but he also knows there are some strong friendships and bonds between a lot of these kids.
Golden is the master salesman, and he knows how to sway people to his way of thinking and doing things.

I think he is giving the warts a chance to get themselves together, and if not he is picking them off quietly one at a time, like Storm Johnson.
His second season he can say it's my way or the highway to everybody because by then, the team will be his boys, and they will have endured a season under the new staff.

So sorry for you Ungar my heart is just breaking :(

And no my opinion does not really change with Morris or J12. One throws picks down the field and one throws picks to linebackers a la Brock Berlin but at least Brock had some fight in him.

I know a new leader will change things but some kids just want to remain "C"students and remain average. We have many on this team who are just content being average, don't want to do the things necessary to become great and this will not change in just a couple of months.

This is a saying I learned at Miami Christian from our basketball coach, he made us repeat everyday and I still remember it.

"Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best."

That's why canechic is the smartest blogger in the room.

Solar LOL

And Ohio have you ever watched an episode of Basketball wives? I would rather stay out of their gossip pure trash. Listening to those ladies talk just made me want to cry. I survived about 2 minutes of that dribble (lol dribble). New Jersey housewives are really bad but those ladies need help.

I must say I love Beverly Hills Housewives but at least those women really work and make their own living.

Thanks Big Daddy :)

canechic

that is a good saying, I like it.

It reminds me of my coach in Optimist League telling the fatbacks how to get under the weight limit.

Never lay when you can sit, never sit when you can stand, never stand when you can walk, never walk when you can run.

You are right a lot of kids, and adults never get it.
I think that's why when someone comes along and does the best they can all the time they stand out like they are special.

Think how special it really would be if everyone just did the best they could without having to be paid, coached, tricked or rewarded for it.
We could mess around and become the greatest country on Earth for cripes sake.

How do you become 75% committed?

You are either in or out
You aren't committed , you are saying maybe.

solarcane

Check this guy out he dresses in a different costume each morning as he puts his son on the bus and waves to the rest of the kids.
Go through some of the days and look at the effort he put into each one.

The blog has some hysterical stuff in it

"11. Only a pirate is capable of killing another pirate. If you are not a pirate (let's say a ninja) and wish to challenge a pirate, they have a word for that. Corpse. [Did somebody say Ninja? see Day 147]"

orange 'n green in the vein

The head coach said not to reduce my expectations, so with that said:

12%

That is all.

Big Daddy Cane

Sup SpaceCadets?
Soup...

CaneChic, I am so sorry to hear about your dog. The unconditional love a dog owner receives from their dog is only surpassed by God. Interesting same letters. I say this not to start a religious backlash. No, I say this to let you know my family is praying for yours. Whatever faith or creed we are Canes...

My new favorite acronym...

P.U.S.H.

PRAY
UNTIL
SOMETHING
HAPPENS

U YESTERDAY
U TODAY
U TOMORROW

Much love... Respect...

canechic

Thanks everyone! And thanks Soup for the article, I will try to cut some slack :) I think until I see those shrugging shoulders.......

canechic

Thank you Ocala, she is not having a good night :(

What are you, some kind of Communist? In America, we expect to be compensated.
