Thick drawl? Check.

Lax NCAA enforcement? Check.

Expensive? Check.

The guy is perfect for Tennessee.

WWIM

I see why Golden said its a no win situation when he talks. People either take it the wrong way or say its a excuse. The man is just tryin to inform us of what's going on. Would yall rather him just come out and say the "offense is pretty good and the defense is bad", and thats it with no details and no information about player developement and who's playing?

DallasTX Cane

What up 86?

Great award for Shayon! He deserves it with what he's gone thru. This is gonna be a LONG off season as I'm really excited about a lot of the young players that emerged this year. Morris and Duke will fill the leadership roles on offense and I think someone will emerge to lead the D also, Bush probably. Experience, self confidence and leadership will go a long way to improving the D (as would a new DC). I think that's going to add up to a good season.

What i'm hearing down here on the local radio is that they don't want to touch him because of unc firing over the whole ncaa mess even though his name was cleared. Also i've heard more Golden to UT than Davis. Folks down here seem to love Golden

DTC...love seeing U, moonbat and Solar all around the 'ol blob! I'm good, just making off-season plans and schedules to keep this place running and entertaining.

I'l start with some basketball and then baseball coverage soon. I also hope to go to a few of the HS State playoff games with Hassan at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando the next two weekends. We will do some scouting while there of potential Canes like we did with Duke and Flowers last year when we met Hurricane Legend Art Kehoe in the stands.

OhioCane and Hassan are going to focus on the ALL important football recruiting process over the next few months. It appears the Canes are about set there with their commitments all locked up except for maybe 2-3 signing day surprises or disappointments.

Then we will try to schedule a Canespace outdoorsy type retreat around the Spring game in March or April. I'll be outdoors with Mrs. 86 every weekend now through April. The weather is perfect this time of year.

Other than that not too much? What about U?

Teddy Bridgewater looks like Mickey Mouse in the Sorcerer's Apprentice in Fantasia with the only long sleeve undershirt on the Louisville offense tonight in New Brunswick.

Looks like Golden will get another pay increase and extension due to the rumors of him being pursued. SMH!

Just listened to the AG & Sid interview...

Everytime I listen to Al, I come away a believer.

If he's gonna stick with D'No... I'm going to back him. (At least for one year... ) If nothing changes, THEN I chip in for the airplane sign to fire D'No.

I'm through bashing. We need to win, and we need everybody on board.

Let's Go Canes!

WWIM

Roach,

I agree 100%

MIAMI HAS PULLED OFF THE UPSET! FINAL FROM THE BUC: Miami Lady Canes 69 , #6 Penn State Lady Lions 65! And the fans storm the court again!

Al Golden is staying at UM. One thing I noticed is about Coach Golden from his temple job.. the process is something that he is fond of saying. Congrats to Shayon and Duke. Love Shayon he is like frank gore.. most would quit but he didnt. I love how Duke is famous around the city. I cant wait to be in Florida in march.

Butch should go to UT. Why not ? Great a school and he is a great Coach

Hey all (off topic):

I recently completed a short documentary about the largest Halloween attraction in our region. We're trying to set up a premiere/benefit for a historic theater and for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Back on topic. Go Canes!

Latest UT news--- jimbo and golden decline to interview for job.
Tennessee ad staff getting press room ready for announcement
at 9am on head coach position. One reports says it is to announce
Jon Gruden as the new coach. Other reports says it is to announce
They are no longer interested in Gruden. Also canespace was on Vol.
network. It said "reported by canespacer Al golden to stay in Miami ".
Hey "canespacer" is better then nothing .

What's party people? Watching the Heat, they are fun to watch.

Golden at Tennessee would be beyond hilarious the first time he goes for it on fourth down in field goal territory on the road against a ranked team and doesn't convert in a game with a three point or less final score differential that UT ends up on the short end of like VT in 2011. Can't do that kind of stuff at a school with Neyland as its stadium name and the third most seats in it in the nation while expecting to last very long.

Morgan Stroman scored 15 points, leading Miami to a 69-65 victory over No. 6 Penn State on Thursday night.

Suriya McGuire's layup with 14 seconds remaining broke a 65-all tie. Alex Bentley had a chance to tie it but her jumper with 5 seconds left bounced off the rim. Miami's Michelle Woods grabbed the rebound and was fouled.

Woods made both free throws with 2 seconds remaining to secure the win for Miami (5-1).

Stefanie Yderstrom finished with 13 points and Woods scored 11 for the Hurricanes.

Maggie Lucas led the Lions (5-1) with a game-high 20 points.

Too funny!

Tonight’s Starters: Maria Brown, Suriya McGuire, Morgan Stroman, Michelle Woods, and Stefanie Yderstrom.

· UM beat a ranked Big Ten opponent for the first time since Dec. 19, 1991 when the Canes topped Purdue at home 65-63.

· Stefanie Yderstrom tied her career-high with seven assists on the night. She previously had seven against SIUE on Feb. 7, 2010.

· The Hurricanes had a season-high 19 steals. The previous best was 15 in the season opener against North Florida.

· Morgan Stroman had a season-high five steals (topping two, last done against Radford on Nov. 24).

· Michelle Woods and Stefanie Yderstrom both had a season-high four steals. Woods previously had two at Richmond, and Yderstrom had three multiple times.

Lady Canes beating Penn State is awesome seeing the fans storm the floor at the BUC on consecutive nights is awesome. I love that our bball teams are good as well. M-I-A-M-l fight, fight, fight!

86 things are getting better in Coral Gables...The best is yet to come!

DallasTX Cane

Sounds busy 86! IMO the blob articles the past 12 months have been the best yet. The writing and content keep getting better. I might not post as much as I used to (work is just busier & I got tired of the "we suk merry-go-round"), but I think this site is a fantastic place for content and mostly good debate.

Looks like things might be coming together for CANES bball...2 huge wins on back to back nights! Very impressive. It's nice to celebrate every once n a while.

TRUST ME when i say this, yes the hell u can. Ever heard of a guy named phillip fulmer?????? Dooley lasted 3yrs and he came from La Tech with a losing record. They so desperate for a coach right now that they are pretty much tryna give gruden the university and part of the cleveland browns, and if u ask me he's way over rated.

"LB awesome trailer bro looks interesting... Congrats and best of luck with that my man!!!"

Thanks a bunch.

Shayon Green was a breath of fresh air this year. Dude deserves it.

Im not into the bashimg d'no wave. But as long as he is here itll be interesting to see if we can attract more good talent on the defensive side of the ball.

What would you do if you were a highly talented recruit given the perceptions of our defensive coaches?

Goldie probably wont fire his friend-- thats understandable. But I wonder if he will fire anyone else on d?

Ask guys you look up to coming up in your area who signed at UM what they think of him really, Tracy Howard (or his mom) still has a Twitter feed so it won't be that hard to get the straight dope and make your decision based on that.

LB

"What would you do if you were a highly talented recruit given the perceptions of our defensive coaches?"

1. You can play immediately.
2. 5 time national champs.
3. Rising program.
4. A winnable conference & BCS games.
5. Top 40 education.
6. The city of Miami.
7. UM's campus.
8. NFL.

Shondell & Ferman in their roundtable discussion said it best, "The Defensive line sucked" Those guys see the problem and it ain't all DENO, so when all you non-believers start yakking about what a turd he is as a corrdinator, just remember this. Shayon Greeen, no sacks in 12 games, Olsen Pierre 1 1/2 sacks, Chick 4 sacks and no other sacks from a DT. Our starting DE's had 4 sacks the entire year and our starting DT's had 1 1/2. I believe McCord had 2 sacks off the bench. How does a starting DE go an entire season and have no sacks? What are you going to say, DENO told them to rush but not sack the QB? It comes down to talent and the lack there of. You might be able to blame shemes on the Db's getting torched or filling in on run support, but you can't blame DENO for the sad sacks he has up front. Yes it's his responsibility to coach them up but it's hard to squeeze water out of a dried up turnip. Ivery, Moore weren't ready to play and should have been reshirted but played because everyone else stunk or was hurt or had their feelings hurt, a la Luther. Corey King was a reshirt Freshman and probably will be a career back-up, unless we go to a 3-4 defense. Porter and Pierre are our best 2 DT's and they too are average. Go ahead and bash DeNo, see what you want to see.
Sorry Ohio, yes I'm whacking the De-Line again and have been for 2 solid years, non-stop, but we are on the verge, with this offense but in order for us to be back, that line has to get fixed. If we can improve to the top 30's we have a shot to run the table. Two players away up front, just 2 who are road graders and I'm sure our DB's will be saying "Thank God I don't have to chase this azz-hole all over the field for 10 seconds before the QB has to throw the ball".

BTW...1 PM for the Shortlist.

86Cane

Herbie...I'm with U on the DL. gotta get that fixed. Current ballers gotta bulk up this offseason and play better next. Then we need some JUCOs and some freshmen to come in that are difference makers.

We need a JUCO beast on the d-line. +1, 86.

Usa,

Look who we got on d last year and look who we got committed this year

VA Cane

"What would you do if you were a highly talented recruit given the perceptions of our defensive coaches?"

I'd rather go to Bama, ND, Florida or somewhere where people know how to coach defense, are well educated regarding many different schemes that keep my opponents off guard, where people are taaught how to tackle correctly and with the intent of punishing the opponent and where guys on my team know how to tackle....we sure dont!!!

spot on 86. We are too small too slow and play way too far off the ball. We need people who have a 440 Hemi Sprint engine and crush opponents souls like a portable avalanche that moves like Tinkerbell!!!!! Big and Bad.....and Tinker...she was fast as hell!!!!

I agree, and have said it all year, lack of talent is the problem and it isn't going to get better overnight. Having said that, I'm still not sold that just getting the bodies in here is going to be all that we need to turn around the defense. D'Onofrio needs to step up his playcalling, stop dropping your one really good DT into coverage in game-ending situations, keep blitzing when it's working, etc.

ColaCane

Hey anybody got any RELIABLE intel on Golden and UT? Nothing on UT website, only that they never offered Gruden anything.

VA Cane

Winning takes care of these things.....look at our rivals from the past.....Notre Dame is back...say what you want they beat everybody on the schedule and they are tough especially on D and O lines they dominate people...they may not beat Bama but they have had a great year....he will develop a very strong program they were awesome on the goal line vs USC

UF...what fall off?...they beat 4 top 15 teams...their D is tough as hell they shut you down....

Bama yea they lost 1...but still have a shot at the NC....tough D

I am a big line guy...was a QB and SS in HS college....but I build my team front first....we dominate the line.....and we pass and run on O....defend run awesome....and our pass rush is like a tsunami....with jets plying one on one on the flank....no zone man it up baby

These teams play D as a team....it aint Johnny Superstar look at me...its lets destroy people together....I love that kid from ND....he is very good...and a quality person...a teamer....He could play for VA Cane anytime....we gotta get big mean and hungary...JMO

VA Cane

I hope I am way wrong.....I want to be wrong....but we got to get with what works....not sit around like that ape statute looking at a human skull with our head in the sand....
