CEO

Thanks to Chris Freet for agreeing to come on the Canespace blog during his busiest time of the year. We appreciate that!

CEO

Sure bro. U ain't scared to hang in the hood are you? Lol

This hood rat from the 305? Not a chance...

Great stuff CEO and Chris. 4 days till Gameday. Go Canes

Jack

Good read! Build those seats closer and put on a dome!!!!!!!!!

CEO

If only every one of the 2000-3000 people who read Canespace each day would PLEASE COMMENT that would be great!

GO CANES, BEAT BC!!!

COMMENT!!

Anthonyjmanis

Go Canes. Happy CEO but for real Stephen Morris will be talked about on all the cfb shows ESPN and ESPNU have after we are 6-0. I am not a kool aid drinker either. Just someone who goes to games and spring games. when I saw them this spring I called my cousin and strated snapping pictures at the size of the players compared to the last 4 years. They look like the team I saw play in 03' we shouldplayed for NC had coker decided to let Brock take 65% of his snaps in the gun. I could go on and on. Thats why I don't post CEO

High praise from former UM king:

Schnellenberger: "That's the best-looking squad I've ever seen in my life physically...expect them to be damn good". http://t.co/1usawEQE

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | August 27, 2012 at 09:41 PM

I never heard Schnelly say that before. I agree. I have actually seen the upper classmen and freshmen Canes physically develop and grow over the last year. Golden will have us all believing after that Canes trip Boston. The Canes may be favored, but I still see it as a challenge because they are a young team on the road without much experience. If the Canes play well, it will be a great season for Golden.

Laquinton

Look at the size of Perryman, look how slim Seantrel is... utough is something else. Also Miami isnt favored. But that's how they skills want it., i'm saying 8-4, 9-3

Anthonyjmanis

Who Stephn Morris jr Mike jame sr etc etc its not like every postion will be frosh and thier back ups too. Whats R.Kelly say age ain't nothing but a number. Now that I know were you guys kick it at (the hampton inn). I can quit driving back to the 352 after games and kick some butt in triva. I'm an 80's baby but I know my CANES.

Hassan

BC is starting a Converted S at CB, he has almost no experience there and has not practiced there much. Sean Sylvia is his name and I look for Morris to test him early.

Willie Will in Missouri

We could always start an Eddie George divorce pool. Maybe add an over/under and give OSU memorabilia or replica of a Heisman cut in half to the winner. Call it the Eddie award.

Posted by: Old Skool | August 28, 2012 at 05:47 PM

I don't think that'll do it, it might help him, cuz "Fall Down Eddie " as we call him in Titans land is known for being wit men

orange 'n green in the vein

/\/\/\

So, that's 'Fall Down(low) Eddie' around Nashville is what you're saying Willie Will?

CEO

QUESTIONS FROM FANS:

TSULLY76: 86 can you ask Chris and others could they get the pricing of the tickets, parking, etc out earlier than they do normally. I know some of it is predicated on the ACC and scheduling, but for us Canes fans that live outside of South Florida or even out of state the more time we have the better to get things together. Like Hotel stays etc. Our Canes have a national following.

CF: SUGGESTION IS NOTED AND I WILL ADDRESS WITH OUR TEAM. WE HAVE LOTS OF NEW FACES THAT ARE READY TO EXECUTE AT A HIGHER LEVEL.

86CANE: How about a 10% discount or maybe a free upgrade NEXT year for people who live outside of the State of Florida IF they purchase season tickets? Kind of like what U did for the Fort Myers crowd this year? The out-of-State folks have to spend travel money and hotels, etc. so 10% off would be a nice gesture even if it is not a huge savings.

CF: THAT'S AN IDEA WORTH EXPLORING, AND ESPECIALLY IF THAT ENSURES THAT THAT AN OUT-OF-STATE-FAN IS AT EVERY GAME. WE WERE WORKING OUT A DEAL FOR FANS FROM SW FL THAT INCLUDED A FREE GAS CARD WITH SEASON TICKET PURCHASES BUT COULD NOT GET IT DONE. MAYBE NEXT SEASON.

Montreal-Cane

Golden said the injured players list was published. Anyone has seen it?

Please post it here.

Anthonyjmanis

O yes Herbstriet their will be mayhem if I win the allstate contest

Willie Will in Missouri

OGV,

Yeah lol. "Fall Down Eddie" on the field and "Lay Down Low Eddie" off the field. I think that's why he just started falling down with nobody around him, he wanted the defense to pile up on him

LB

"Its not called being realistic, it's call telling the future. Tell us the weather for those games we'll be losing also??"

Which do you want, Willie Will? Do you want me to comment on how I didn't predict losses, but exposed opponents' strengths (after I previously defined their weaknesses)? Or do you want me to comment on silly connotations?

Since when is criticism and free thinking a bad thing? I want UM to win as badly as anyone...

...but grow up, people. Sheesh.

LB

Eddie George:

"“The thing about Miami is, the kids there, they’re kinda caught in the culture of ‘We are The U.’ They kinda just feel like they can just go out there and they’ll bow down to what they used to do.

" ... Al Golden is trying to change the culture by holding guys accountable and keeping them there and working with them to say hey, the days of The U are done. Now it’s time for you to create your own image. That’s part of the issue there."

If Miami isn't "the U," then I propose changing the school's logo and giving it to someone else.

Looks like the silliness infected all kinds today. Night, night.

orange 'n green in the vein

I just want Willie Will to pay me $3.99/minute next year for my predictions or 'telling the future' after what I'm telling him comes to pass in 2012.

HawaiiCane

Well then I guess after thier 7-6 season, Ohio State should no longer be able to refer to themselves as...

"THE Ohio State University".

That title can be give to the 10-4 Bobcats of...

"THE Ohio University"!

j.w.

Thanks as always, CEO

Willie Will in Missouri

...12-0? Please don't be that guy. Why are 7 to 9 wins so terrible? Can someone explain that to me? Al Golden is a great coach and I absolutely believe that his teams are destined for GREATNESS by philosophy alone. But we've got some ways to get there.Rome wasn't constructed in a day, nor are the Golden Canes. Please remember that.

Sincerely,
Realistic Optimist

Posted by: LB | August 28, 2012 at 03:03 PM

That's what you posted, so if you saying 12-0 is crazy then that means you are saying we are going to lose.

Before the season started last year people thought the ohio state game would be tough and we would lose but who knew they would be without their head coach, starting qb and rb??? By game time they didn't look so tough. So nobody knows how hard a game will be until game time. For all we know fsu could lose their whole first team defense to injuries or suspensions by the time we play em. Nobody thought clemson would do anything last year cuz they were young but they almost went undefeated and could have went undefeated, and I think their best wr was a freshman (no way a freshman wr could be one of the best in the nation as a freshman, that could never happen right). Al golden knows the strengths and weaknesses of his opponents too but I but he doesn't think 12-0 is crazy and you wouldn't want him to think that but it's OK for you to think that? As a fan you should never predict your team to lose no matter what. You got to BELIEVE and have FAITH cuz anything can happen on any given Saturday, your team has a 50/50 chance just like the other team, so I say believe in wins until proven other wise.

Thanks 86 for asking the good questions and major props for Chris on the insight. 86 see ya in Friday at 6pm at Duffy's.

3 days till Gameday. The Miami Hurricanes is blowing up I-95 and gonna hit the Boston College Eagles at 3:30pm on Saturday. Go Canes beat BC.

The Dude

If we had a vote here, on who is your favorite Cane as a person, how much of the vote would Mike James get?

The Dude

I want Mike James to coach for us some day.

The Dude

Mike James is gonna impress the hell out of coaches at the combine.

Tsully76

So I imagine Coach Golden will release the final depth chart today. Should be interesting to see the final 2 deep for the season opener against BC.

The Dude

Chickillo is a bonefide meathead. Love the kid. The interview with Denzel was good too. I love the look on his face when they tell hi his run D is bad, lol.

Posted by: CEO | August 29, 2012 at 07:57 AM

I usually play in 3 leagues each year.....

why you ask? ...cash payouts :-) and bragging rights.

LB

"That's what you posted, so if you saying 12-0 is crazy then that means you are saying we are going to lose."

Your connotations are incorrect. You preface it by thinking I'm down on the team. You're wrong. Ask around.

"As a fan you should never predict your team to lose no matter what. You got to BELIEVE and have FAITH cuz anything can happen on any given Saturday, your team has a 50/50 chance just like the other team, so I say believe in wins until proven other wise."

Some people also believe that Santa Claus would make an excellent Presidential candidate (I may write that down somewhere). Feel free to believe whatever you want...

...it has no effect on your team whatsoever.

Fans have little effect on the team unless the architecture which encompasses it starts to get uncomfortable. When revenues started to die, Donna put a foot in Randy's rear end. When people stopped showing up to games and threatened to stop buying tickets, that's when a good coach got hired.

When good coaching came, UM became competitive (2011). I absolutely believe that an Al Golden team will go 12-0, but not now. If you think so, then you absolutely have no perspective.

Is there some kind of law that says you have to live in a bong-induced coma? Yes, I've heard the line about winning. It even made its way into a film title (Any Given Sunday). Delusional fanbases don't help at all. 12-0 is ridiculous. 4-8 is idiotic.

Truthtellers are often reviled, and I absolutely accept being the prick who bursts your bubble.

Again, I love Al Golden. He's going to make this team a beast. Temper unrealistic expectations.

-------------

"If we had a vote here, on who is your favorite Cane as a person, how much of the vote would Mike James get?"

He's got my vote for a person and a player, and +1 for your suggestion of making him a coach someday.

He's a FANTASTIC dude.

I wish we had him for 4 more years. Seriously. He's truly a complete back. Fast, powerful, good blocker, soft hands, and even was a returner. He's got it all. A great person.

And he's mentoring Duke Johnson.

LB

"How many people here play fantasy football?

Posted by: CEO | August 29, 2012 at 07:57 AM"

I play in one league. I have little clue of what I'm doing, and I do it because I am psychotic. I make pop culture references and try to be funny, but I probably fail in both. I play Fantasy Football, and because of it... I am a moron.

LB

Another thing I like about Coach Golden: he keeps the cliches to a minimum.

"Yahoo with a factually deficient article??? Say it aint so..."

They put Storm Johnson in the same sentence with Duke Johnson. What a bunch of pathetic fools.

If I were Duke's family, I'd be insulted and call for a retraction.

Willie Will in Missouri

LB,

You totally contradicted yourself. First you said you didn't say we would lose, which way you going???

I shot a bazooka size hole in yo "realistic theory". I'll respect you as a realist is you come out and say you don't know how the season would go. But to say 12-0 is crazy is being realistic is not realistic cuz nobody knows. People thought David was ridiculous when he brought a sling shot to slay goliath, how did that work out???

Fans don't have a impact on a team?? I guarantee that if the canes had a packed house every home game with fans that BELIEVED in em you would see a completely different team. Name a top notch program that doesn't play in front of a packed house at home?

LB/Moriarty

"Are U actually saying the fans don't have any impact on how the team plays AT ALL? U sure?"

:)

Absolutely not. Fans have the biggest impact via financial gains & losses, though. Predictions, don't though. Though filling up the stadium is absolutely a quantifiable asset and can change the outcome in games. UM prepares for such, too (jacking up the speakers).

-----
"I Like WillieWill's thinkn as a 12%er Ive said for years piss poor fand expecting loses equals piss poor play and loses.. Only ppl who have never playd anything would think otherwise..LB appreciate U but U are Wrong..12% 4ever.."

But that doesn't constitute me being a "bad fan." I've defended Golden on all accounts. I live in WV, and I defend him daily from people who HATE Miami with a vengeance (though they have no reason to). His philosophies are sound and his coaching is excellent. I've detailed this in great length during my short tenure on the Space. My issues have been addressed privately and I am confident that they are getting fixed in a MAJOR way.

It is intellectually dishonest to call an undefeated season for a team who hasn't won a bowl game since 2006. It can't be justified, and I would be lying to everyone. If someone has to play the villain by being truthful and giving unbiased opinion, that's okay. I totally accept it.

Yet I've done my time as a fan. I've lived through the happiness of the 80's, the depression of the 90's, and orgasmic joy of '01-'03, and the sickness of the Randy Shannon era. It's even tougher living elsewhere (by reading Ohio's previous blog, I think he suffers too).

Since LSU spanked us on New Year's, it's been a dark road of maybes, Joe Rose Randy Shannon crack-sniffing, continual 12-0 predictions, the godlike aura of the 2008 class, and a rotating door of coaches. It has sucked. Then comes Golden, and listening to his opening remarks was a breath of fresh air.

I love Golden. LOVE HIM.

I absolutely hope I'm wrong. I hope I'm dead wrong and eat crow. Big time.

Bowl Wisher

Willie Will in Missouri

RCCF,

Thanks. We have different categories for canes fans now, a lot of em don't understand that they are not die hard fans anymore. If you hear a lot of ouches its bcuz I just stepped on a lot of toes

12-0 till da world blow, its the only way to go!!! Lol

HawaiiCane

No question for Freet about new uniforms... oh well!

Excited for Gameday. Period. Done arguing records, lets just watch them kick some a** and "shock" the college football world!

Golden actually answered that question yesterday:

Q - "can we get orange and green uniform combo?"

Golden - "Keeping Miami's traditional uniform color scheme"

Willie Will in Missouri

LB,

I'm not mad atcha lol. I'm just saying you can't say you are being truthful about something that won't take place till a few weeks from now. It's not "truthful" it's assuming your team will lose, and you know the saying about assuming. Like I stated earlier, I'm sure you thought we would lose to osu last year before you found out they would be without their head coach, and starting qb, so you don't know who we'll be going up against till playing time.

Just wondering, when we play fsu what will be your mind set? Since you already know we'll lose do you watch the game and just hope its a close game?

tjl3909

anyone been watching Hard Knocks? I haven't seen Lamar Miller at all. Alot of footage of Jeff Ireland-when he told Vontae Davis he was being traded the first thing out of VD mouth was he needed to call his Grandma..he then asked who was he traded for and appeared disappointed Ireland didn't say Andrew Luck!

Ohio_Cane

TJL, I've watched every episode and didn't see LM6 once.

Agreed tho, it was funny during the whole Vontae trade and being told about it. He looked stunned.

SOUP/CEO/86..I have wanted so bad to do a blog breaking down the season and my predictions, but have had so much stuff going on I havent been able to do the proper research..maybe I can get to it once the season starts..just will be a game or two late lol

UMike

CGNC..great point lol

UMike

Back in blue?

Willie Will in Missouri

CGNC,

I said packed wit fans that BELIEVED in em, you missed that part. Also, that game was packed only bcuz it was the last game to ever be played at the OB not bcuz they believed the canes would win.

CoCane

Lmao! Not believing your favorite team will go undefeated doesn't mean you're not a true fan...

Da "U" has went undefeated 4 or 5 times in about a century of football. That's bout a 5% chance of going undefeated.

Expecting perfection every year is logically nutz.

But... Everyone has their God given right to expect what they want from their team.

A true fan sticks with their team through good & bad. Wins & losses. If this is how U feel bout your favorite team, U are a true fan...

Name a top notch program that doesn't play in front of a packed house at home?

USC, stadium holds 93,607 they average 74,000
There's a lot to do in California just like here, One of the most elite teams in the country with 20,000 empty seats a game at home

next question

CG how is the real estate scene going, are you CGJF pretty soon?

I hear ya Mike, add UCLA's 56,000 fans per home game in the 93,000 seat Rose Bowl and you can start to figure out why maybe the 47th ranked Canes aren't selling out at home

CGNC brings tht same point every time we discuss this bottomline is winning is infectous and with fans who expect loses but expect the team to outperform fans doubts is stupid Negativity breeds negative reults. A BETTER U STARTS WITH U..

Exactly next question cuz u proved my point thanks lol. 70,000 is great i'll take that all day. And people kill me with this, "its a lot of things to do in so fla thats why we don't go to games", like u can't do that same bs on another day or better yet why u didn't do that stuff before the season????

===========
HMM funny you didn't say gezus 20,000 EMPTY seats what the fck couldn't those 20,000 people do what ever it was on a different day than gameday???

Your arguments get so distorted on here its amusing. No matter who on here points out you are way off or wandering into the Twilight Zone you come back with some other slanted statement.
It's not a bad thing to say "Gee I see your point. Let me think about that I may be wrong.

You wanted to know a top notch team that doesn't play in front of a sold out home stadium and I gave you an example in like twenty seconds.

The fact they have 20,000 empty seats didn't have you acknowledge Yes thats a good example, that's just not willie is it?

If gambling where legal, 7-5 nemo.

4-1 as a road dog and off a straight up loss is where the value trend was . . . if gambling were (or where, as the case may be) legal.
