Mcginns ale house

Thinking of a placing a bet solar...can we cover 7 wins?

Mcginns ale house

The bet is sizable, would like to hear how we will win seven.
Thanks

Mcginns ale house

That's open question to all canes fans? Thanks

Scott

Not to sound "condescending"... but I will enjoy remembering this article when we beat you again, and again, and.... again. If it's any consolation, I don't dislike the Miami team or fans at all. I love Miami "sure bet" win week. See you I'm the green! :)

The What

Nice article. Didn't we steal Lockhart from VT as well? Or am I wrong on that? Times a changin. We had that game last year and ahould have won it. There is a shift in the ACC and we are finally going to take our spot as the dominant team in the ACC and college football.

McGinnis, I think we will get to 7 wins.

Last season - average strength, below average heart, experience, lack of developed players, lack of interest/no motivation, NCAA sanctions

This season - Inexperience/youth, physically stronger, mentally stronger, more heart, more acclimated to system, no more drama, better team chemistry, competition for each position.

Compare the two and I say you will get 7 wins. I truly believe we will get to 8 potentially 9 but safe bet is 7. Among our victories will be hated VT.

solarcane

Mc,
I wouldn't bet on us winning 7 games at this particular moment. Like everyone here I think we will be in every game and if we got all the calls and all the breaks every game we could pull an upset and maybe finish with 7 or even 8 wins.
I'm not sold on our offense putting up a ton of points but if D Johnson could be what we thought Bryce Brown was going to be who knows.

Scott...please tell us more?

Solar...U have the record with the MOST firsts ever in the history of Canespace. And now that U are back in action there is no hope for the rest of them! LOL

pre83,
good to know you are still here and posting
Yea that was really me on the SS responding to the new beat writer.
I hope he does well, I tried to let him know Cane fans don't really care where a guy picked up his paycheck before he got here

monte, cgnc thanks,
great to see lots of my ole friends are still spacing out

86Cane

Solar...there are LOTS of old school Canespacers still here. And there are also a lot of NEW Canespacers here.

U will get the feel for it after awhile.

WURD ON DA SKREETZ IZ:

1. I guess I forgot to add Standish as a ballah that Al will have to keep workin to make sure he inks with Miami. What that ballah did at that camp was straight nasty. He just to da&# good to not have teams still comin after him. That boi is yoked the f up and could still put on 15lbs of pure muscle. Hes that type that could roll into the Gables and contribute right away. Aint no RS n that boi.

2. Before everyone gets all hyped with little Olsen just remember hes throwin to NJ speed and aint ready for Miami speed yet on either side of the ball.

Speaking of which...I am going to start making plans on what game we are attending this year so let me know what home games you plan on attending so we can meet up.

86Cane

Raize...VT or FSWho?

raizecane

Not sure which game....need to get with the homies and see which one they can attend. FSU is going to be crazy from parking to finding decent seats for decent price.

So what's happening Monday??

SJMPARMAN

This article really fails to understand VT. It is not in Northwestern Virginia, it is in Southwestern Virginia. In VA, there are two big state schools, the University of Virginia, which is a state school but caters to the elite. There is no VSU, ala FSU, but VT.

VT is the state school that the overwhelming number of good but not great students attend. A large number of these students come from the Northern Virginia/DC suburbs area. It is 4 hours from home so that a student can be a student but not so far away that kids get homesick.

There are many other excellent schools in the area of No/VA, in DC and Maryland but these are not state schools that participate in the VA pre-paid tuition program and so alot of students go to VT.

In SW Virginia, you have a wasteland of entertainment. You can drive on the interstate, I-81, and see signs that the area is a technology corridor, and there is not a building in site for miles. So college football is the ONLY game in town, and it is a BIG DEAL. They don't hate Miami personally, like UF fans do, and to a lesser extend FSU fans do. They just hate any opponent. That is a key difference in the rivalry.

Besides the DC area, VT recruits primarily the Virginia tidewater area, which is the southern east coast of Virginia. This is where Michael Vick came from. It is extremely poor part of the state and equivalent to Overtown or Liberty City except many of the recruits may be military kids. They also recruit heavily in North Virginia and Richmond.

Yes, Beamer will occasionally try to find a nugget in Florida but that isn't his standard Method of Operation. I am sure he was disappointed in losing Blue but it wasn't as big a deal as the article implies.

Beamer has great coaches. Period. And he is a great coach. The reason the balance of power has changed recently is we haven't matched it. When the QB ran for 20 yards on a fourth down QB sneak last year, it proved we still can't match his coaches. Hopefully, next year the talent will match the coaching.

Please don't demean VT and make it sound like UF or FSU. It is not. Plus, why do we need to hate and not respect our opponents? In our prime, we didn't hate anyone, we just fielded the better team. That should be our goal.

I liked your comment and saw you made several keen observations that were helpful. That was until I got up to this point.

This is where your train completely derailed. IF U talk to former players they will tell U that Miami's success was fueled by hate. Hatred of losing, hatred of the other team and the player lined up across from U. The players at UM went from hating losing more than anything else in the world and being completely devastated after a loss to saying: "Well the other team has players on scholarship too."

U might have heard a little something about Miami's "Us against the world mentality" back in the day? Well that all came from hating and being hated.

They had a saying: "EMBRACE THE HATE".

Some players have gone as far as to say that the reason Miami is losing over the last 6-8 years is that the players don't hate anything. They don't hate losing, they don't hate their opponent, they don't hate anything. A few former players have said that until Miami's players learn to embrace the hate they will not win again.

I know that sitting there on your high and mighty, holier than thou throne it may sound childish or petty but like it or not it is true that hate was and is the basis of little old Miami's success over the years.

EMBRACE THE HATE!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Turkey shoot for charity

Scott, I'm directing a performance of Richard McBeef for the stage, I'd like to offer you the lead roll in it.

Ohio_Cane

Papa Cane - 2014 WR Ermon Lane, an elite prospect out of Homestead, was offered by Alabama yesterday. FSU is his next stop. Expect same. Miami leads.

Ale House...check your email, I replied.

Ohhhhh uhhhh, I won't say I hate VT...but I will saaaaay uhhh...PHUCK EM'!!! PHUCK EM'!!! is worse than hate, 10Xs WORSE!
I hate VT, more than I hate FSU,UF, and ND COMBINED!!!
And DeAngelo Hall is a SUCKA!, running up on A.Rolle when He was on crutches, on the sidelines, ya'll remember that.
They're fans are SUCKAS! to, if I recall correctly, they're the ones that dropped a beer keg on Randy Shannon's when He was the DC.
And ScarFace<------Shout out to my dawg OGV)is a SUCKA! to, slapping that young man on national TV, and allowing His ACs to threaten a teenager because He didn't want to go to your SUCKA-ASS! school.
In summary PHUCK!!! VT, and everything that they stand for.

"Jimbo Fisher banned FSWho players from using twitter... Wonder why? Lol"

Smells like Randy Shannon to me. Looks like that cupcake schedule is already causing problems?

herbieibis

This team more than any gives the reason why, a good stable coaching staff, helps teams win. AAH, Va Tech our albetros. If anything can go wrong, it does when we play these guys. They win, not so much with great talent, it's the coaching and they live off other teams mistakes, especially us. We look like punch drunks on dollar day. I watched us play them back, i believe back in 2002 or 03, in Blacksburg. They had aproximately 190 yds total offense for the game, we had somewhere near 325 and we get hosed 31-7. Hell even Marcus Vick threw a TD on Sean T, that game and I'm sure everyone remembers Everetts drop in the endzone when he was wide open. Last year for once we actually played a descent game offensively, only to see our dee- be a sieve. Anyway, you guys no the scoop.This dude wanted me to give his 3 year old a high 5, when they scored on us, even stuck him in my face. Little did he know, I was about another beer short of knocking them crubs on little Johnnie's bib down his throat, Nah I wouldn't of done that but they are irritating and listening to than dam gobbling all night, stinks!
They win because they don't lose games very often that they should win, unlike us and there're going to win 8 to 10 games most years, as long as Beamer is their and his lifers coaching staff stays put but they will never be us and win ships, they can only sniff and that's what winning 10 games is, sniffing.

CaneRock

The key to beating VT this year will be:
Shutting down their running game.

Make their QB beat us with His arm.

And getting ours on offense...SIMPLE!!!

UMike

Wow..went from the joy of a $85k sale of my business, to no sale at all to perhaps losing the business all together to talks of divorce..all i about 48 hours....good times! When the hell does football start!!!!

86Cane

The University of Miami has dismissed senior Ray-Ray Armstrong from the football team. Armstrong can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student at UM to complete his degree or the University will grant him a full release should he elect to transfer to another institution.

CaneRock

I guess that means Bush will play early.

Q

Wow ray ray. And he just missed that supplementAl draft wish him the best but damn. Crazed hype never translated to the field. Well Deon bush.. Come on down

LB

"The University of Miami has dismissed senior Ray-Ray Armstrong from the football team. Armstrong can continue to be enrolled as a scholarship student at UM to complete his degree or the University will grant him a full release should he elect to transfer to another institution."

Wow. Holy Wow.

We need Deon Bush now.

86Cane

Hassan...Gotta say: U were right. Might as well tell them all of what U know now?

Q

Welppppp guess a scholarship just opens up for you Dante phillips

LB

It's official. He's off the UM roster site as well.

The What

Best of luck ray ray. Disappointed to hear that. Always wish the best for Miami players especially one that chose to come back when his peers bailed. But you gotta keep your nose clean especially when the NCAA is all over you (if the rumors are true).

Best of luck ray ray

CoCane

Dam Ray Ray... Smh

herbieibis

That figures. Just continues the trend of the 5 star curse. What a flipping waste and really Al gave this dude all kinds of rope and naturally when you do that, they hang themselves. Next is SeanTrelle, is he going to keep the curse alive?

LB

How many times have I reiterated:

5 star players, 5 star issues. I believe I recall a lengthy one-sided conversation to that effect.

However, when you get a player with a 5 star attitude, a 5 star heart, and a 5 star love for the U (Chickillo)...

...you get results.

Slightly off-topic:

There are no such things as victimless crimes.

If I was Goldie, I'd stand in front of the whole team and ask one simple question,"Does everyone get the point". I got my dam broom out and I'm ready to sweep you supposed idiot super-stars out the door. Yes we are NFL football factory but you have to pay the price first before you walk out or get thrown out the door to superstardom. You guys that are all about me, your day has come and gone. You will work your Azz off or you will be gone, no more red carpet treatment. Some of those guys that left early probably could of been first rounders had they stayed but they thought more highly of themselves, than the NFL did, so which would you rather be a 1ST rounder or a tweener round Pick? The choice is yours, well wait a minute, the choice ain't yours, if you don't care where you get drafted then you will be gone because that means you ain't working hard enough, you're trying to cruz on my watch & that ain't happening! Now that we have that straight anymore questions?

UpNorthCane

Well Dante Phillips to UT...... guess we got an extra schooly for a baller this year.


Ray Ray was my favorite player on the team i had faith he was going to turn it up this year. Its a damn shame but i wish him the best somewhere else.

longtimecanefan

Sorry to hear Ray Ray is moving on but as they say...

next man in......

Ohio_Cane

This makes me sad. RR was one of my favorite players, but unfortunately, his head isn't on straight. Good riddance to bad seeds, I guess.

On the bright side, there's a guy named Deon Bush who works harder than RR, doesn't have the self-entitlement RR has, nor does he have the hype that RR had to try to (and failed at) living up to.

I have a respectful hatred of FSU because they never run from us...but I loathe Florida and Virginia Tech....

j.w.

Good morning folks! Great day at the CA State Fair- the canespace shirt was a big hit, Soup- I can't believe how many Canes fans are around here, I hardly ever run into any. :)

Please don't demean VT and make it sound like UF or FSU. It is not.
Posted by: SJMPARMAN
SJM- I hope you didn't get the impression I was attacking the school, just having some fun with their football team!) Sorry about the Northwestern/Southwestern thing, I should have figured that one out. But like CEO said, we need our guys to hate the opponents again, we'll respect them after the games are over. :)

UMike - keep your head up, hopefully things will simmer down, sounds like it got heated very quickly (as things usually do when it comes to anything monetary) .. hopefully cooler calmer heads will prevail and talk out the issues at hand

Who the hell is Ray Ray Armstrong?

No loss in cutting bait with that kid

Only people that are sad are OCoordinators in the ACC b/c they might have to actually consider not using playaction or any kind of play where the halfback gets the ball on a sweep & then throws it to someone downfield as much anymore

Still laughing about going to a certain steakhouse, ordering chicken and then tweeting about it. What a dumbass

From what was told by Golden, work ethic shouldn't have been a problem. Dude got a black shirt and was first on the "workers" when Golden responded to such questions.

Furthermore, I don't think Golden has to say anything. This speaks loud enough.

Ohio_Cane

UMike, very sorry to hear this. Hoping your situations clear themselves up quickly and painlessly.

Ohio_Cane

LB, agreed.

Ray Ray didn't have a problem with work ethic this year. He was working his tail off.

Also agreed that no words need spoken by Golden. The empty chair in the meeting room, empty locker, and Sean Taylor's jersey number being available should speak volumes.

2013 DE Maquedius Bain says he's no longer committed to #FSU

Tee hee, tee hee! ;-)

Hassan


First of all I wish Ray Ray Armstrong good luck in school and in his football career if he is allowed back to the U for his Pro Day i will wish him well. So people on this blog know a few current players and i can tell you that the only reason Seantrell is back on the team is he was voted back by the players..... Ray Ray has some NCAA issues and this call was not made by Golden.....

anyways ask skreetz how is Deon Bush looking?

LB

For Bain:

The depth chart is a lot more attractive at Coral Gables.

Heisman:

Landry Jones is not a safe bet. It could be argued that the Sooners play 7-8 quality opponents. Not a safe bet at all.

I really like Barkley. In some aspects, more than Luck. The schedule isn't as bad as Oklahomas, as they get the Ducks at home. They also go to transitional Stanford.

My feelings on the 2012 FSU schedule are well known. EJ Manuel for Heisman? Hilarious.

Wisconsin's schedule looks REALLY good. They don't play Michigan in the regular season. Montee Ball?

I never take West Virginia seriously, so that's out for Geno Smith.

I have no idea who to predict. A sleeper, perhaps? I'll bet against Jones due to schedule and the unbroken propensity for the Sooners to lose a winnable conference game. Other than that...

...Ryan Willams?

Heard this a few weeks ago. Preferred to not believe it.

86 can tell me if he wants me to post what I heard. Probably the same thing U know/heard, Hassan.

dadesfynest83

LMAO @...

"And don’t get me started on game day traditions. The Hokie walk to the stadium is a nice tradition. Jumping around like 5-year olds to a Metallica song stolen from Mariano Rivera isn’t."

o man, that was great. And it feels good to post on here again. I was gone for a while, a long while. I kinda had to be away to concentrate on planning for that thing where you say "I do". And Twitter doesn't help either, that's another reason I've been missin, Papa Cane is the man on Twitter so it feels like I don't miss a beat.

Sup spacers, hope all is well. And regarding this whole Ray Ray thing all I have to say is this...never EVER has one person been bigger than the U. And when have we fallen without not only getting up, but getting up and comin back with a fury?!?!?

I wish him the best, relly do. I just hope nobody was surprised by his dismaissal, after all, it was his THIRD booster/agent related issue in a year. Enough is enough...
Plus, it just guarantees a Carter commitment next Monday.

U guys ever notice that all the problems we've had with guys have all beeen Randy's boys? Hmmm...

w/e man on to the next one, can't wait for kickoff!!!

I turned on the WQAM stream for 5 minutes (first time since Sid left). The very first thing I hear?

Laz from Cutler Ridge.

That dude is a media monster. He's the Christopher Lee of Canes fans. He's everywhere.

UpNorthCane

Ohio bro spill the beans on what you know....I believe 86 already gave Hassan the green light on it....

Ill be shocked if the players really voted against keeping ray ray but decided to keep henderson, man that mustve been heartbreaking and a reality check if true.

LB

If there are NCAA issues, there's nothing the players can do to help.

LB

"Plus, it just guarantees a Carter commitment next Monday."

Armstrong was a senior. Carter is in the class of 2013.

dadesfynest83

wow...yea to know that ur brothers don't want you to go to war w/ them kinda sux. I mean, that wreaks of an attitude problem...

dam man...

Think this...
what does Golden's decision to allow him to transfer ANYWHERE say? To me it says, go ahead (fill in the blank), deal with the headache if u dare. wow man, just wow

dadesfynest83

yea LB I'm jus sayin...on to the next one...

I'm willing to bet we lead the nation in landing 5 star players that've just not panned out

#gocanes

LB

"Think this...
what does Golden's decision to allow him to transfer ANYWHERE say? To me it says, go ahead (fill in the blank), deal with the headache if u dare. wow man, just wow"

It's not surprising. Golden knows what he's doing.

"I'm willing to bet we lead the nation in landing 5 star players that've just not panned out"

Heh. I assumed you missed the debates?.

86Cane

UpNorth...just to summarize what Ohio and Hassan both "know" are some additional details that the current issue "allegedly" has to deal with agents (again) and $$$ (again). Hassan even had some "evidence" he emailed me from a source and Da Skreetz gave us some 411 that I purposely chose NOT to post on the blog because nothing was "official" yet.

I wasn't going to put it out there until we had confirmation from Golden or UM which basically came today when Ray Ray was released by UM. We are VERY careful NOT to put players or negative news out on "front street" until it comes directly from UM.

That is called "responsible reporting". We don't want to be FIRST we want to be RIGHT.

conch salad

If there is any issue with Seantrel, it definitely involves his love for the maui wowie.

The What

Lots of drama today.

F
Nice article jw.

Best of luck UMike

Kinda sad if your own teammates vote you out. I really do feel bad for ray ray. I really hope he finds great success on and off the field. It's one thing for your coaches to lose confidence in you. It's another when it's your teammates.
