First

BEERicane

Duke will finally be the back the canes have been waiting for sine Willis.

solarcane

I’m sorry but I can’t give you a prediction until I see the first two games,

smartest answer to this question yet

86Cane

Susan also said this: "If Seantrel Henderson starts after the second game and for the rest of the season UM will go undefeated."

JUST KIDDING!

BEERicane

smartest answer to this question yet

Posted by: solarcane | August 25, 2012 at 09:12 PM

Biggest lack of balls in an answer. Oh, wait....

Tsully76

Well 86 Susan has to come back on September 10 or 11th and give us a final answer to the record. lol on the Seantrell Henderson playing time equals automatic wins.

Sinistercane

Susan how the hell did Ramon buchanan hit the top of the deph chart when he was hurt during the off season and out work by the younger LBs

robert lockhart

j.w.

Top 6? thans as always, Susan and CEO

solarcane

beeri,
any fool can say we will go 12-0 10-2 etc. just because it seems thats what your heart says. NOBODY knows anything until we see Duke get popped by an all American senior linebacker, Morris throwing against guys not named Mcgee.

Lets see kids actually play someone then start gushing.
Jacory and the MNW posse winning the NC as jrs never coming close to happening didn't teach a lot of fans to stop predicting things they haven't a clue about.

roachcane77

Strongest position? It's hard to say. I really want to see this team play twice before making judgments. I'm strange. I need eye-ball evidence before putting my reputation on it.
Posted by: ByCasagrande | August 23, 2012 at 09:38 PM


Hmmm... seems like Susan has been reading Canespace!

usagainsttheworld

Canespace: Stephen Morris won the starting QB role on this team. Do you think he is really ready to lead this team to victory in 2012 or is simply the best available player at his position at UM right now? We all know that it is only a matter of time before fan favorite Gray Crow is named the starting QB at UM. . .

(with all due respect) this is a ridiculous question. the best available player should be your leaders! gray crow hasn't done jack-he's the friggin' 4th string quarterback right now. am i missing something or what!? stop talking about him. we ridin' out with "stevie morrie." he's our guy, he's the best available player at his position and he's our leader!

gimme' a break.

roachcane77

All kidding aside... Susan... what's YOUR opinion on Eddie Johnson #44?

He's one of my LOFs...

BEERicane

Posted by: solarcane | August 25, 2012 at 09:24 PM

VERY true, solar. But that McGee comment just made me cringe. not only because McGee is the worst coverage person not named RayRay, Morris is throwing against the reserves. That makes me want to call 5-7

canesteeler

Spence is on the bubble to make the Steelers.

longtimecanefan

Given the # of underclassmen that will be playing big roles this year it's really hard to figure how the season will turn out.

To be fair, I'd say we're a 5-7 team at the start that could grow to be 7-5 by seasons end.

The good news, with lots of returning players next season looks much more promising.

But for this year, sit back and watch the future unfold

UMike

umike it is looking pretty good that i can go to unc and gt will you be in atlanta?

Posted by: solarcane | August 25, 2012 at 08:20 PM

solar, I am trying..a buddy of mine up here is a GT fan and we vowed to make every game in Atlanta since its only 2 hours away..so I should be there

solarcane

The Crow thing is just an inside joke 86cane plays.
He is friends with Gray's mom and dad and they read this blog, so he winks and gives Crow a lot of love

solarcane

umike,
fantastic I think roach will be there too, his boy goes to GT....I know, I know.. maybe we can all hook up somewhere and hang out.

Willie Will in Missouri

Solar,

The jerseys are suppose to fit tight so that the players won't be easily grabbed

usagainsttheworld

dear mr. and mrs. crow,

no harm meant. your son's a cane and he's family-- that means you are too!

solarcane

longtimecane
I'm with you, I think next season will be what we used to take for granted and we are a ranked team from there out till Golden is coaching The Buffalo Bills.

solarcane

usagainst, lol sweet reply

hi willie,
yea I know but I hate the look.

solarcane

I think Danica Patrick is texting

tjl3909

Dallas Crawford not making the bus means they have big plans for The Duke

Susan Miller Degnan

Thanks everyone. By the way, I had no idea that @ByCasagrande wrote that he needed to see the first two games before making a prediction. If he really did that, as seen above, you have to respect him for that!! Haha. Did he predict the first two games also?

Laquinton

Wow, six is gonna love the fact that crows parents read the space. Lmao beeri great point tho. McGee isnt the top 8 corner in the acc just 2 inches smaller and 20 lbs lighter than DVD honestly they play the same. Morris has arm but can he make his checks and throws to the guys wearing orange and green. I dont think golden is leaving anytime soon..Seantrel won't start until NC state.

Hassan

Congrats to Clinton Portis and Sean Taylor for being selected to the 80 for 80.


This is something the Redskins are doing to honor the all time best Redskins (players and coaches). Previuosly they had 70 for 70. and added 10 today.

By Susan Miller Degnan

Mike James arrived at the University of Miami as a running back with a smile so radiant, an attitude so positive and a work ethic so unflinching that his teammates couldn’t help but be drawn to him.

That he has endured excruciating heartache in his four-year journey and come through it with those same attributes speaks to the character of the man he has become in his 21 years — and the woman who brought him into the world and raised him.

Now that's better young man.

There are by last count at least 7-10 players parents who read the blog and the comments so PLEASE be careful what U say.

86Cane

Susan...who knows what anybody else does? Just give us your best Seantrel prediction and casll it a day!

usagainsttheworld

86 I'm going to email you tomorrow...

Let's go Canes!!!

We Got Some Canes Over Here!!!

STARTING TO GET REAL NASTY DOWN HERE WITH THE WIND AND RAIN..CAN'T WAIT FOR THE REAL HURRICANE TO START!!!!

4-Real

Damn!! Checking out the list of guys that won't be traveling 2 B.C. Did any of the $55 dollar kids get 2 go? Lol

roachcane77

Solar... not me with a kid at GT.

My one and only daughter was a 2005 grad from The U, baby! (Degree in Film & TV)

She's now married, out in L.A. and a successful video editor. Made me a grandfather last October with Miles Lennon Chandler. (A great baby, and future Cane!)

Anyway, I know SOMEONE on here has a son or daughter at GT, I just can't remember who.

CGNC

LOL next week at this time we will be discussing the BC game we saw the day before

VegasCane

In less than 2 weeks, I will be on a flight from Vegas to Kansas to go to my first Miami game in person. Can't wait!

Hassan

I think Marve is going for his PHD, he has been in school since the Bush Administration. He has had more operations then a WWII Vet.

Hassan, maybe finally at 23 he has matured. I think his dad was part of his problem. I wish him the best.

Tsully76

Any Canespacers going to the Ga. Tech game.

orange 'n green in the vein

Man, if getting edged out for the sweep in a home and home series with traditional all-time doormat program Kansas State doesn't exemplify the 'Golden' era to date, I don't know what will. That team was the biggest smoke and mirror team in the nation in 2011, got to get that one back.

86Cane

OGV...U said that Miami was going 2-9 this season so why wouldn't U EXPECT them to lose to K State?

CaneRock

The buzz on UM freshmen and where they stand; Dolphins, Heat, Marlins chatter
SUNDAY BUZZ COLUMN

Howard’s strengths? “I press well. I’m very physical, quick. A smart corner. What sets me apart is knowledge of the game….

“I’m very humble. I don’t go out. I don’t play video games. I don’t want to party. I might graduate in three years, studying finance. But I want to win before I leave. Hopefully, I’ll win the Jim Thorpe and be the first corner drafted.”

teeler- Spence is on the bubble? THought he was a sure bet to get significant PT, at least on special teams.

Coach: Jedd Fisch

orange 'n green in the vein

86, first of all, I expect them to win the national title every year or else it's a disappointing season. Now I foresee a disappointing season in store for 2012 and when it's all said and done, 6-6. 2-10 is in play though and that worries me because that would imply to me . . . a failure in leadership.

Yes I typed it!

86Cane

Legends of the Fall - Michael Casagrande

I'm sure if U keep hoping and wishing then someday your dreams all will come true.

If a 2-10 season and proving that Golden is a failure as a leader is what makes U happy then I feel sorry for U.

What do U wish on people who U really hate or have given U reason to dislike them?

86Cane

Lengends of the Fall - Gary Ferman

Offense: Phillip Dorsett

Defense: Ladarius Gunter

Freshman: Duke Johnson

86Cane

Legends of the Fall - Brandon Odoi

CoCane

So who's the canespace legends of the fall?

Offense- Hassan
Defense- DTX
Frosh- 4-Real (U still f*ckin suck b*tch! Lmao j/k)
Coordinator- Solar

Sorry CEO... Picking you is like picking Schnellenberger

86Cane

It's been a long offseason for Notre Dame football. Quarterback Tommy Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese were arrested in May and suspended. Starting corner Lo Wood tore an Achilles tendon in fall camp, making a thin secondary that much thinner. Adidas's newest entry in the "Shamrock Series" of alternate uniforms was pretty much the worst thing ever. Etc.

But with less than a week before the Fighting Irish's season opener against Navy in Dublin, Ireland (9 a.m. ET Saturday on CBS), that offseason has somehow gotten even longer. NBC's Inside the Irish reported Saturday that starting running back Cierre Wood is suspended for the season opener and will not board the plane to Dublin with the rest of the team.

Sources told reporter Keith Arnold that Wood could be facing a suspension of multiple games, though a reason for the suspension was not given.

Rumors have swirled around a possible disciplinary issue with Wood for some time, and per Arnold, the suspension is not a new development within the program. Coach Brian Kelly has been preparing for Wood's absence throughout fall camp, Arnold reported, with most of that extra preparation falling on the shoulders of new presumptive starter Theo Riddick.

Riddick, a senior, ran for 63 yards last season on 14 carries and has 252 career rushing yards. Sophomore George Atkinson is also expected to play a major role against the Midshipmen after seeing spot duty in 2011.

86Cane

Cocane...I like your selections for Canespace LOF but I think OhioCane and Hassan are the offense and defense selections with LB as the Freshman and Solar, do to his recent triumphant return to the blog, is the Coordinator choice.

86Cane

I also like OGV as Coodinator as well?

usagainsttheworld

86, just sent you a message -- [email protected] Btw, please forward addy. I'd like to buy a t-shirt.

CoCane

Bethune- W
@GT- W
NC STATE- W
@ ND- L
UNC- W
FSU- L
VT- W
@VA- L (This slip up will be the last time they beat us for a decade)
USF- W
DUKE- W

9-3

CoCane

CEO,

Wise choices bro. Of course this is the Legion & there is no wrong. Feed in to the bias!

VA Cane

Watching college gameday....very bad to hear the guys talk about Bama, USC, Oregon, OK, LSU, Georgia, VT, WVU, FSU....etc and we are not even mentioned. I do not like to face the truth about us sometimes....but right now we are pretty irrelevant in CFB. Just the truth. However, you have to start somewhere, so0 we got to take em on one at a time and do the best we can. I like being relevant!!!!

CoCane

Break out ballers:

Stephen Morris
Mike James
Maurice Hagens
Duke Johnson
The entire O-line
Allen Hurns
Phil Dorsett
Rashawn Scott

Yes, the offense will be top 3 in the ACC

Amp Chickalo
Shayon Green
Denzel Perryman
Brandon McGee (I got faith in my Lauderdale peeps)
Ladarius Gunter
Tracy Howard

All of these ballers is why I say 9-3. If we had 1 dominant DT, I would say 11-1...

Hassan

Thanks COCane


University school playing some ohio team on ESPN right now

CoCane

Fa sho Hassan...

Too bad I'm at work. I would love to see J. Cunningham do his thang :-(

Hassan

T.O cut from the Birds

Hassan

Dolphins trade Vontae Davis for a future 2nd rd pick. Which they will probably draft a kicker or something......l This team is the dumbest I have seen

Hassan

university School, bain playing OL. SOPH Jordan Scarlett is a beast. not much from Cunningham so far

Laquinton

Ha ha. T.o. Is a bum now. And I live in Seattle and i'm a ravens fan.

Laquinton

V.Davis didn't mesh well with coach philbin from what I seen on hardknocks.

Yeah Seattle fans are like fsu fans feel they are the best in the west

fmcane

Just met Ladarius Gunter's dad here in Montgomery! Super nice guy and of course I gave him the low down on the space. He might pop up with some comments, but will def be reading!

Tsully, I live in capitol heights right by downtown montgomery, but I run a furniture store so I generally work all Saturday rather going to watch parties, I try to watch on the computer at work!

4-Real

U know U got it goin on when u get a LOF vote & the CEO ain't got one !

solarcane

The kid that works for me may be right i might have "oldtimers"

I guess it's alpharetta that has a son at GT

Co,

solarcane

Watching ACC kickoff Logan Thomas looks like an o lineman he is just scary.

NCST David Amerson cb 13 picks, NCSt 27 interceptions last season, thats like a decades worth for our d backs.

86Cane

4-Real...CEO ain't eligible, but don't forget U do still owe me the $75 for letting U stay on Da Space! LOL

86Cane

Sully...I just placed a new order for more shirts and they should arrive in about 10 days. I only have XL and 2XL right now.

OcalaCane and I are launching a privately labled Canespace line of 5 different coffees next week. We will offer some gift packages and special deals where U buy like 3 lbs of coffee and get a Canespace coffee mug and get a FREE T-shirt (plus shipping).

Details later this week here on the blog.

86Cane

The first person to buy some Canespace coffee will get a SPECIAL (signed by the coach himself) autographed bag of "The Kehoe Kup" coffee blend.

Tsully76

86 that's awesome. FMCANE the Boston College game comes on ABC locally and the Kansas State game comes on FX locally. obviously the Bethune Cookman game will be online man.

CoCane

Respect...

Lmao at 4-Real...

QB- Upgrade: Morris is better than Jacory
RB- Even: The loss of Miller will be offset by the tandem of Mike & Duke.
WR- even: Haven't seen enough of them to say they'll be able to replace Streeter & Benjiman but I have a good feeling about them
TE- upgrade: Only because of experience & better conditioning
OT- upgrade: Seantrel & Bunche is healthy plus Flowers. Nuff said
OG- upgrade: Feliciano is at his true position & Linder. MOVE BIATCH! GET OUT DA WAY!
C- Upgrade: McDermott is more athletic & better conditioned than Horn

I can't wait to see these boyz do what it do...

BigWIndyCane-Forecast1

I have enjoyed reading the "five questions" series this year. Canespace is a great site to read, write and analyze all-things-Canes. Great job, 86!

BigWIndyCane-Forecast1

As per ESPN:

Boston College receiver Bobby Swigert will miss the season opener next week against Miami with a left knee injury, coach Frank Spaziani announced Friday.

Swigert was hurt during the team scrimmage Wednesday after making his only catch. In the announcement, Spaziani said Swigert will be out for several weeks. Expected to start this season, Swigert appeared in all 12 games last season and led the Eagles with 44 catches for 470 yards and three touchdowns.

Injuries are really mounting for the Eagles, who will be without at least three starters against Miami. Tight end Chris Pantale (foot) and cornerback Al Louis-Jean (foot) also are out for the Miami game. Running backs Rolandan Finch, Andre Williams and Tahj Kimble also have been banged up during preseason camp

Jack

We should beat BC by 14!!

86Cane

Great job, 86!

Posted by: BigWIndyCane-Forecast1 | August 26, 2012 at 05:15 PM

U are very welcome.

86Cane

We should beat BC by 14!!

Posted by: Jack | August 26, 2012 at 06:15 PM

I had the same dream!

CoCane

We should beat BC by at least 3 tds. They're without their best DB, 2 top skill players & Keuchly gone. If we only win by 14, we're officially babbage & K State will molly wop us. Imo

VA Cane

Boss, I will drop you an e mail in the morning to be sure I have your address, will send you a check or a $10 whichever you indicate. How about a 5 Questions with The Great Mandingo? I really like Manny, hes a great guy!!!! Hope all of you are out of harms way, please be safe if you are in the hurricane area. I pray you all will be safe!!

Hassan

I think Tyler Horn was a good player, very smart and might make the falcons but Mcdermott seems more gifted athletically. Horn would always get pushed back by bigger tackles, he is def a smart player and I think Mcdermott was able to soak up a lot of knowledge from Horn. They are about the same size, Horn measured in his pro day at 6'3.5 and 298 UM list Mcdermott at 6'4 and 295, Horn did 19 reps of 225 and MCdermott is over 30 with a 400 lb bench press. I believe Mcdermott will play well this year, he also has been practicing against much better and bigger DT's then last year's group.

86Cane

VA...U can send cash, just wrap it in a blank sheet of paper so it is not visible from the outside.

I am waiting patiently for The Mandingo to respond to his FIVE questions. He has a new baby girl (1 yr old?) that occupies a lot of his time these days as U can imagine and respect. Hopefully early this week.

86Cane

Hassan...good work on the blog today. Appreciate U!

Hassan

Dortch Came in at 152 lbs!! He has gained 23 lbs since arriving.

You can see that the coaching staff is unlike the previous regime in that they have a detailed nutrition and S&C plan for each player, you see weight going up in some and down in others and all in a positive direction.

Ivery down from 331 to 303 losing that baby fat and getting quicker.
Isodora down from 345 to 312 same thing. Hamilton is up to 271 so he can play all along the DL if he gets much bigger. O'Donell is 243 now and on his way to being big enough.

86Cane

Hassan...I have heard GOOD things about Dortch from U know who. The S&C and nutrition program is a complete night and day difference from before.

TonyCane

Hassan, the trade of Davis means that next year, in addition to picking an offensive lineman in the first round to protect Tanneyhill, they will use their newly acquired second round pick to draft....get this....a cornerback.

Dolphins are like a hamster...running all night on the wheel but not making progress.

CaneRock

Posted by: Hassan | August 26, 2012 at 09:20 PM

Hmmm, I thought the exact opposite about McDermott, seemed like Porter and Smith were just manhandling Him in the Spring. Physically, I think Wheeler is better than McDermott, but you're right, McDermott may have the mental side down more.

j.w.

Glad to see Isaac was a dud for eveyrone, back to regular business tomorrow with Manny next?

I'm in Houston until Sat. I'm not convinced Isaac is not headed here. That track keeps pushing further and further west with each update.
