Cortez is a class act. I met him at the VT game 2 years ago when he was honored by UM.

solarcane

"Named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1992 while playing for a 2-14 team "

as astounding as Paul Hornung winning the Heisman on a 2-8 team

Cortez is true badazz

The Pipe said our teams looks the best getting off the bus of any team he has ever seen. I think we look pretty good. Give these 32 Freshman til next fall under Golden and the new strength program and see how good we look, Our freshman actually look bigger then our Seniors. Go down the roster and compare.

Blue hit me back says the 194 lbs is from his Junior year of H.S. He is 223 lbs right now

Is blue still 6'?

Blue wears #54

4-Real

Hassan, it is a little disturbing that our kickers & qb's are bigger than some of our linebackers. But 2 Golden's credit these boys are a lot bigger than they were.

I say play ALL freshmen & let the veterans back THEM up.

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

I feel you but lets look at it another way, Sean Spene is 5'11 and checked into UM at 186 lbs and left around 225 lbs Last year.

Blue is also 5'11 but starts his freshman year at 223 already, Denzell is 227 as a Soph. So there is a an upward trending starting with recruiting. Just give Golden 12 more months and you will not be able to say any Bama or LSU is bigger or stronger. those guys might have taller LB's but they will not be better or stronger LB's.

Last year we had a 248 lb freshman DE a 360 lbs out of shape Juco transfer DT a 265 lb converted DE at DT and a flip flop at the other DE spot because of suspensions.

This year our back up freshman at DT are 300+ and 30 rep plus benchers. One more year and you will see the real results, we just need these 32 freshman to eat and lift esp if we take another bowl ban. You can not hold Golden back with his Drive and organization combined with SFLA HS talent.

When Golden can get a couple of bad ass tackles like Mr. Cortez Kennedy, then the canes will be back. All great defenses need a dominant defensive tackle.

j.w.

Appreciate all the posts, everyone. I am in Tahoe for softball and would be so out of touch without the Space

There IT is right there.

Can U imagine where UM would be IF they had players like Russell Maryland AND Cortez Kennedy on the '88-89 team?

86Cane

Dennis Erickson on Cortez Kennedy:

"Cortez Kennedy, in my opinion, is one of the most dominant defensive linemen to have ever played the game of football. He could dominate a game more than any defensive tackle that I have ever seen play, on any level."

SKREETZ WALKIN...

1. Hurns really looks good comin off that surgery. His range is back to where he needs it to be. My boi RaShawn is runnin routes sharp and makin catches either low or high. Lockhart needs to keep his concentration. Boi can make grabs that make you say oh sh$# then turn around the next play and either forgets the route or drops a pass. Yah, that boi D'Mauri went up with Nate and Maq and pulled it in. Im tellin you boiz, that ballah will be a playmaker durin his career here at the U. Babyface is comin off the line alot quicker then last year

2. Didnt get to see much of the D cause I know more peoples want that O dime. What little I did see is that boi Pierre is 1 jacked up m fer and his technique is far better then last year. I know I been on the Ports wagon but I gotz to be straight that ballah THE PLUG is 1 badazz boi. Yah his name deserves to be in CAPS.

3. I gotz a chance to get at Bunche on the water break when I was slidin out and boi assured me he is that man and gotz my back when I say to peoples he can dominate the line. Im 100% on my boi so if he dont showout them goons got that freedom to call me out for bein wrong. I can take it, just dont make it personal or I will find you lol

UpNorthCane

Whats going on canespacers???

I cnt wait to be reppin that U against BC, we gonna start 1-0 thats forreal... I think as long as we have that go to WR we gonna be realll good. Im sensing from all the info my boy Soup, Ohio and the other bloggers who

SMD - "OT Seantrel Henderson hasn't been seen today by players. Will update after speaking to golden"

solarcane

co, cgnc,
I agree with both your comments about swasey
Maybe hes good coach with weak leadership skills, Golden seems to bring the best out of his coaching ability.


soup,
the solarzone is in limbo for the time being.
Very few times in my life have I had more work than I could do,it's a blessing in this economy so I'm not complaining a bit.
I sure wish I could join you guys for the scallop rodeo.

Maybe for sure I can drive down to your house and go to game with you we can make concrete plans soon.


solarcane

skool,
lt was good talking to you glad your doing well, I'm looking forward to seeing your dream boat

off to church catch you guys soon

GO CANES!!

From The Herald Sports Buzz blog:
An NCAA investigator visited Shelly Bloom Fashion Clothiers in Miami a couple of weeks ago to try to get Bloom to corroborate some of Nevin Shapiro’s claims. Bloom said he told the NCAA “nothing,” but “I did try to sell them some suits.”

Bloom said Yahoo! got it wrong when it reported that Bloom confirmed Shapiro spent thousands on suits and clothing for Devin Hester, Tavares Gooden and Willis McGahee. Bloom insists he never said that.

### A UM Board of Trustee member said the top of the school's administration believes the latest allegations against Al Golden (that he was aware of Sean Allen’s improper involvement with recruits at that time) are NOT true. “I have no doubt he’s not involved,” said one-high level UM official who speaks to Golden a lot. “He’s as clean as you can be.”

I LOVE the quote from Bloom... "I told the NCAA “nothing,” but “I did try to sell them some suits.”

CANES BABY!

All the people on the blog with their well wishes and prayers THANK YOU AGAIN. Reading about my hobby and fav team the Canes helps take my mind off things, not to mention it is boring as hell sitting in a Hospice room 24/7

BUNCH

"I lost weight and still got stronger. I lost just five pounds and I attacked the weight room every day. I was able to get my 225 pound bench press reps from 30 to 36, so I was happy with that. My bench press max went up to 445 pounds and that went up from 430 last year."

Our OL is big and strong and I think the work this summer helped them to gell a lot more.

Ohio_Cane

Hassan, just read back through, and wanted to let U know i'll be praying for U and your family. Hope our prayers give U strength at a difficult time.

Chick and Morris will also make huge statements. Golden's Canes will surprise a lot of people this year as long as they stay healthy.

The strength and conditioning program will pay off and the Canes will be one of the most physical teams in the ACC. They days of the Canes getting dominated up front are over, and the Canes will also bring that old school Canes speed they are known for.

Golden might be on track for ACC coach of the year.
