Man 4-8???

Posted by: solarcane | August 21, 2012 at 09:05 PM

YUP...Odoi said after the Spring game that IF Golden wins 6 games or more this season that UM should give him a LIFETIME contract.

Seriously he said that and he meant it too!

solarcane

I'l stick with 6-6
and an optimistic 7-6

nice work here btw

stanley shakespeare!

Tsully76

Smh at the 4-8 prediction. Our Hurricanes haven't been that bad since the 70's. I think Canesinsider need their heads examined. I got a feeling they and Sports Illustrated will be eating some crow sandwiches by November 25th.

orange 'n green in the vein

LOL, Odai no-sells the GRAY CROW meme from the CEO with a total on the level response. Now back to finish the rest.

Hassan

Portis is a stud. best blocking RB nearly his whole career.

86Cane

Sully...I ain't taking sides on this one because I have to let it play out just the way it falls. Someone will be right and someone will be wrong that's just the way the ball bounces.

orange 'n green in the vein

I hope you're right Terrance.

solar, we both know that if UM goes 7-5 or 6-6 in the regular season there's no toilet bowl being accepted to help self-penalize for the coming NCAA infractions. Who really wants to go to Shreveport or DC in late December anyway?

From this interview, the fact Odai still picks the O with all those early entries missing as the stronger side of the LOS and the fact he had to pick a corps not a position for the strongest position on the team tells me . . . Golden's not getting another extension and Odai should never be allowed to be an AD.

To think people will still curse the legacy of Paul Dee to this day for daring to hand out an extension to a 9-3 coach with a national championship and a career winning percentage north of .800%? Now we've got .500% seasons for under .500% lifetime coaches getting them five more years and then lifetime extension recommendations? Appalling.

86Cane

OGV...what U didn't like my little innocent GRAY CROW plug? LOL

Let me tell U a little story about Gray Crow's parents and how they met OcalaCane at Fan Fest. Let that marinate for a while and I'll get back to it...

86Cane

nice work here btw

Much more to follow. Here's the lineup for the rest of the week for FIVE questions with Canespace:

Wednesday: Gary Ferman from Canesport

Thursday: Michael Casagrande from the Sun-Sentinel

Friday: Chris Whittyngham from WVUM

Saturday: Manny or Susan from the Miami Herald

Tsully76

Exactly 86. Totally respect that. OGV I just feel our overall team will be better. If our Canes have a losing record I will be the first one to apologize and eat crow sandwiches. I just feel at worst we will go 6-6 and at best 9-3. Vegas has our over/under win total at 7. So Vegas thinks our Canes will go 7-5. I will go with 8-4.

86Cane

So Vegas thinks our Canes will go 7-5.

I will go with 8-4.

SMART MAN.

Brandon is aware that we have only played sub .500 football TWICE in the past 30+ years right? Yet he thinks this team will be worse than the one who disgraced the old girl's retirement party???

Please o please let all five of the questions you ask Susan be about Seantrel ;-)

I have Casagrande (Sun-Sentinel), Ferman (Canesport), Whittyngham (WVUM) all locked and loaded for the next three nights. There is some REALLY good stuff!

Ohio_Cane

God made Notre Dame #1, Miami made them #2, and Adidas made them look like vomit. http://t.co/kSHh7pXX

j.w.

Ouch with that 4-8 prediction. Hope my 7-5 is closer to reality. :D OGV: not sure about your bowl ban prediction. If UM thought we would get hit with a 2 year ban I think we would have already seen the announcement. My prediction is we accept if we are eligible and the NCAA has not ruled.

Montreal-Cane

86 good questions.

Last answer should be 8-4 my optimistic prediction lol...

Monty...I am trying to get it right. Thanks for the support.

MDCane

I think we'll be 7-0 going into the FSU game. FSU and VT will be our only challenge this year.

Willie Will in Nashville

I don't get how some of these teams we're playing suppose to be good????? Like unc, va, va tech, bc, notre dame, nc state, I don't get it???????????????????

Willie Will in Nashville

MDCane,

I agree, I don't see these other teams as threats

Hassan

With us sitting at 82 schollies do we self impose a 3 schollie reduction starting this year for 3 years, It would help. We could do one more bowl ban assuming that we win 6 games. I think if we ban the bowl this year and start the self imposed bowl ban we should be over halfway thru our sanctions. I think we get a 2-3 year bowl ban and about 3 schollies for 3 years.

LB

“He’s our ball-disruption king,” said UM middle linebacker Denzel Perryman. “[Last week], he had eight sacks. In one practice.”

READ MY LIPS.....NO WAY WE GO 4 - 8 THIS SEASON.

Hampton Inn - Plantation

Good morning 'Canes fans! Susan from the Hampton Inn here to ask for your support in raising money for breast cancer awareness.

I will be walking in the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Cancer" walkathon on October 13. I am a breast cancer survivor and this is the third year that I will be participating in this event.

If you can support me (even as little as $25 would help!) then just click on my personal page link below to donate via check or credit card on line.

GO CANES, BEAT CANCER!

Hampton Inn - Plantation

We look forward to having the Canespace Crew at the Hampton Inn in Plantation once again this season and hosting your special events like the "Party on the Patio" after every UM home game.

You can make your reservations on-line by using the Canespace Corporate ID 0002702804 or by calling me or the hotel front desk at 954-382-4500. Make sure to mention the special "Canespace Rate" for college football games this year.

Thanks again for your business and all of us at the Hampton Inn look forward to seeing all of you crazy orange and green Miami fans once again this Fall.

GO CANES!

TonyCane

Hassan, agreed with taking the second bowl ban. Depending on how long the investigation takes, if I were UM I would consider skipping the next 3 bowl offers before feeling that they were in the clear.

orange 'n green in the vein

Bowl ban is a risk reward type of transaction to me, if you're in a top ACC tie-in game, take the exposure and the relatively minimal financial loss and play in it, but if you're just barely qualifying, self impose a ban again, save the money, and yes, consider, depending on who you think you have a shot at signing, a 3-6 scholly reduction 3-4 years. You always want to come up just slightly short because you know the NCAA isn't going to tell you that's too much self imposed punishment Miami, you're good as it was. Aim for five or less extra scholarship losses in this case because this team isn't competing for anything big right now.

Willie, in order of your team's that are 'better than UM,' question;

Veteran QB with four OL back with a coach known for blowing up scoreboards, the same minus the scoreboard destroying coach and they beat us last year, based on defense returning nine starters and the QB ate D'No alive last year, they're not but saved the coach's job with the upset last year, it's a long trip to Chicago and they have much better regarded recruits down the board than UM, again seasoned QB who's a big time NFL prospect and four linemen return.

Ohio_Cane

Seantrel just walked onto the practice field.

Rumors may shut up for now.

Brandon_Odoi

Hey guys, love the feedback. Remember my primary goal is to cover the team, not necessarily predict their performance. Having said that, I feel like I can measure some factors having an up close view on how they look. Appreciate those who agree and disagree with my outlook. I'm also factoring in the distraction a notice of allegations from the NCAA will cause when it drops in the middle of the season. So keep that in mind.

Brandon_Odoi

Also s/o to Canespace for a job well done.

Ohio_Cane

86, well done. Great questions, great article.

Brandon, well done with the answers as well. However, I'll respectfully say that you're NUTS if U think this team will only win 4 games.

7-5 is worst case scenario, IMO.

The []_[]

Something may be up with Eddie Johnson and not in a good way. Wait and see how it plays out.

Ohio_Cane

Seantrel Henderson cleared to practice, Al Golden said.

Golden: Eddie Johnson is inside right now. He should be outside shortly.

Ohio_Cane

Golden indicated status of Eddie Johnson is unchanged & he's on team. We still haven't seen him.

Ohio_Cane

SMD - Seantrel is out here practicing. He has been cleared. Still no sign of Eddie Johnson.

SMD - at UM practice: no one wearing yellow limited jersey and no one wearing red no contact jersey

LB

"Seantrel Henderson cleared to practice, Al Golden said."

4-8 is lunacy.

Posted by: Brandon_Odoi | August 22, 2012 at 09:28 AM

We owe a BIG Shout out to U for participating in our "Five Questions" series. And thanks for laying it out straight like U see it.

It is not about IF we all agree or not it is your perspective and opinion and that is ALL that matters.

3G Cane

Whats the deal w/EJohnson?

SlingBlade

All 5 questions for Susan should be this one question...any new info. on Seantrel?

86Cane

Ohio...did I forget to mention how good it is to have U back on the blog? Well IF I did, it is GREAT having U back on the blog and (Twitter too)!

CGNC

4-8. Well. I think we go better than that and less than 12-0. LOL got my bases covered

86Cane

Rumors are rampant that there is some type of situation going on with redshirt freshman linebacker Eddie Johnson, who just happens to be a co-first-team outside linebacker with Thurston Armbrister. I'm hearing there is something to those rumors, but I don't want to report anything until it's confirmed -- if it's confirmed.

Golden said Johnson was inside the Hecht Athletic Center and would be coming out shortly. He was not out there during our viewing. We asked about his status and Golden said his status was the same. "Nothing has changed,'' Golden said.

If Johnson's status is in jeopardy, then it appears Armbrister would be the starter, with true freshman Gabe Terry as the backup -- at least that's what the depth chart says. Johnson is listed as 6-1 and 230 pounds. He is from Atlanta, Ga.

U are a 9-3 girl. Don't back down now!

CGNC

86 - LOL. 4-8 is pretty sad considering the ACC is a fairly weak conference

herbieibis

Just scanning the blog and that 4-8 prediction woke the Herb right up. I know we are down right now but lets think about that 8 loss prediction. Who besides FSU & Maybe N. Dame has more overall raw talent on their squads? Yes we have played down to the comp ever since we've been in this snake pit conference. What we are up against this year is at least 9 teams with veteran QBs back. The defense this year will probably remind us of the '98 team. It will be leaky. Losing to BC would be a total slap in the face and could set the tone for a horrid season. Even being young, I can't see us losing to BC, G. Tech, or S. Flo. The defense should be better by years end and I can't see us losing to Vir. either. The toss up games for us will be NC St, K. St & UNC. N. Dame, & Flo. St could be ugly. It doesn't matter if we have 20 starters back and Va. Tech had sisters of the poor playing for them, we'll find a way to give them the game. 6-6 is reachable and the sooner we reach that plateau the better I'll feel and hand the NCAA our 2ND bowl ban and have that out of the way before they can open their mouth with sanctions. It would absolutely suk, if we didn't get 6 wins and they give us a 2 yr. bowl ban because next year, the dam cream we've been waiting for to rise to the top the last 10 years, will finally start to reach flood stage. We should easily reach 8 or 9 wins next year. Ship losses would probably be at around 15 over 3 years. We got to get to 6 wins, some how!

LB

"Nothing has changed,'' Golden said.

That's what we need to know.

LB

"Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson was back at practice today. He has been cleared to play, Golden told us."

LB...Casagrande (Big House) is our guest for "Five Questions" on Thursday night. His first three questions are totally different from the ones that Odoi from CanesInsider and Ferman from Canesport answered (Ferman runs tonight at 9 PM).

Casagrande has been tearing it up since taking over the SS blog. A welcome addition to the media covering the Canes for sure!

raizecane

Can we ask Big House if they do drug testing at SS?? Because they surely don't at CanesInsider when they predict a 4 - 8 season. :-)

LB

Can't wait. I really like that guy. Me gusta Casagrande!

j.w.

Brandon, no worries, predictions are predictions, I just hope yours doesn't come true. :)
Anyone else hate the rumors? lol

Tsully76

The last time our Miami Hurricanes won fewer than 5 games was 35 years ago in 1977 under Lou Saban.Heck I was wearing cloth diapers then.

j.w.

CEO- check your email

canezilla

I HEARD SOMEWHERE THAT USF IS RETURNING 17 STARTERS.MIGHT NOT BE A CAKEWALK

raizecane

canezilla - we won 3 - 0 last year at their place....I have no worries (haha)

86Cane

JW and CGNC...got your emails and responded.

Raize...wasn't the USF-UM game won 6-3 (not 3-0) by Miami at USF last year? Still we should beat them, with that I agree.

calGary Cane

With all the predictions for this year and how the O is supposed to be better, but the D not so... I am looking forward to see how well our offense plays this year. Would be nice to see the WRs, RBs and TEs show their stuff! Can't wait!

raizecane

your right......it was such a barn burner that I can't recall the final score...lol.

Ohio_Cane

Ohio...did I forget to mention how good it is to have U back on the blog? Well IF I did, it is GREAT having U back on the blog and (Twitter too)!

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

U DID forget to mention that, but I forgive U! ;-)

Seriously tho, it's great to be back.

Honeymoon in Riviera Maya was amazing, and we were treated like royalty at Secrets Maroma Beach. Would recommend that place to anyone thinking of heading to Mexico.

Also, 4-hour swim/ride/pet/snorkel with dolphins at Dolphinaris park for $200 for 2 people was something I'll never forget and was much more incredible than I thought it would be. If U go there, do that at this park. Indescribable.

Bleacher Report is predicting who all of the leading tacklers for each team in the ACC will be. They (shockingly, lol) picks Denzel Perryman for the Canes

If it burst, then He may be out awhile.

CaneRock

Brandon says: "Only time will tell, my guess is he's poised enough to put up points on offense. It's the defense that will let him down."

True, but I think it goes both ways.
I think the offensive game plnn, has to play into the offensive and special teams game plan. I think this season comes down to a simple formula:

Offense on the field LONGER + Defense on the field LESS =s 7-5 or 8-4

But at the same time, that ball control has to yield POINTS, or at least good field position for the special teams to work with.

IOWs, if our defense has a lot of grass between their ass and the goal line, we'll be alright, if not, it's gonna be an interesting season.

I gotta feeling this season might be like JJ's first season here, hopefully we just don't blow 31 point leads LOL.

Ohio_Cane

ACC announces men's basketball league schedule. Miami vs. Duke on ESPN twice this year. http://bit.ly/PdaPYm

orange 'n green in the vein

raize was thinking he was seeing double for that entire afternoon so he was subtracting one kicker appearance each from the USF game. Having hit up his tailgate pregame, I can't blame him for making that assumption about his own mental state, LOL.

solarcane

This is why we aren't expected to win the NC as far as the rest of the football world is concerned.
this is based on 32 ranking systems nation wide. We are starting out at #50 we started at #44 last year Here are a few of the rankings

#50 Miami FL ACC 0-0
43 63 97 44 37 60 47 66 37 56 69 64 50 56 61 50 61 62 52 65 55 52.09 51.0 14.26

97 or 14th both are about as far fetched as it could get, 50 is about right

Solar sez: "97th or 14th both are about as far fetched as it could get, 50 is about right."

I agree. To START the season we should be about #50 and then go UP or DOWN from there. But #50 usually doesn't go 4-8 do they? More like 7-5 or 8-4 correct?

86Cane

The Miami Hurricanes’ Sept. 8 football game at Kansas State will be televised live at 12 p.m. EDT on FX, as announced Wednesday by K-State and the Big 12 Conference.

OGV,

Just bcuz you're a veteran qb doesn't mean you are good, look at kirby and Kyle wright. Also just bcuz you're a returning starting doesn't mean anything either, mcgee is a returning starter this year, how do you feel about him? We are playing in the acc not sec
