UMike comes back swinging and hits home.

U gotta love that about ANY Canes fan. We may get knocked down, but we will get up swinging!

Well done son, well done. VACane would be proud!

Go Canes

Good stuff UMike.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike is also a maestro on the Grill. Love the article. Go Canes!

I may not go that far, but it is in my top 10.

Maybe my top 5?

The Dude

Top 5 minimum.

SOUP

YUP, just for the sincerity factor alone.

Lurker

Damn good article, except the part about eating people on a stick.
😂

WWIN

Best Blog EVER!

Yeah I said it, two tears in a bucket...

WWIN

For the fans by the fans!

NOT for the Homers by the Homers!

SOUP

WWIN...I shed a tear or two myself to be honest.

WWIN

P.S.

Rock when was the last time I said F da heat? Too long ago???

Well F em!!!

Terrance Sullivan

I guess it's a crime to be a Homer right WWIN?

Terrance Sullivan

We should just all be negative all the time and every thing will be OK.

CaneRock

U🎤 gets 🎤🎤🎤🎤🎤

WWIN

^^^^^^ see Tsully, why you have to do me like dat dawg? I thought we was boys? Lol

Nothing wrong with being a Homer if that's yo thang, so the same can be said about being a Nancy. Everybody is entitled to their on OPINIONS. What I really hate is when people think other people are miserable or depressed just bcuz they tell da truth about the state of the program. The program sucks right now, that's just stating the truth. Not saying that it can't improve this year but that's the current state we're in. But my life is great, the program just sucks right now! Lol

Truth on the blog.

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly. Nothing wrong with having Homers and Negatives we balance each other out. Just giving U grief my dude. Wax on! Wax Off! It's put up or shut up in 2015. Time for Coach Golden and company to get it done or UHaul gonna be moving his belongings from Miami. That is all. I love each and every one of U. We Canespace FAM.

WWIN

^^^^^ I agree 100%! You know you my boy Tsully!

VfB_Cane

UMike, mad respect for you. This is the best blog post I've seen here (and I've been reading for years).

Many people fail to understand the difference between "hope for" and "expect".
If I hope for the Canes to lose 5 or more games next season, I am not a fan. We should always hope that next season is the time when we will go undefeated.
Expectations, on the other hand, are a totally different thing. They are based on experience, reflection, analysis (remember the "By the numbers" blogs?). And it is only natural that after a decade of mediocrity and in the wake of a losing season, it is not realistic to expect an ACC title, undefeated record etc.

Saying as much does not make you less of a fan, as UMike has so eloquently stated.

UMike

Thanks for the love guys..and as always, thanks SOUP for allowing me to contribute.

Lurker..would you believe me if I told you that last part about people on a stick mysteriously appeared AFTER I submitted my blog article lol

Also, kinda cool the little kid in the first pic is the same, but much older, kid in 2nd and 7th pics lol...man time flies...

Go Canes

I think responses to commits like "Just more time for them to decommit" or this kid can really be a player responded to with "Too bad it's wasted with this staff" are the things this blog can do without.

Responding to every little thing with a shot is just counterproductive and has no purpose other than to annoy.

To me, things like that are what was killing this blog, not differing opinions.

Jmo...

UMike

Go Canes...I can agree with that for the most part, but since those comments a lot of the times turn out to be true that is why they are said lol....those comments dont kill a blog imo...taking away the freedom to have those opinions do. For every nancy that makes those comments there is a homer making outlandish statements based on nothing more than being a homer lol....it goes both ways. I dont think it is done to annoy at all, it just annoys you cause you're a homer, just like the homer comments annoy me cause im a hater lol... The debate is healthy...this is a well balanced blog. We all cant be homers 100% of the time, especially when things arent all fine and dandy at the moment. But we also cant be nancys 100% of the time.

As long as the debate stays clean and not personal were all good imo.

UMike

And Go Canes...I praise you man for always staying so positive in light of all the negative that has happened to this program over the last few years or so. In real life I am that person, just ask TSully he is on my Facebook lol...I know you catch a lot of shyt around here but we do respect you, you have certainly earned that.

Terrance Sullivan

UMike U are the man!

UMike

TSully in tha buildin!! T, how far are you from Chattanooga?

Sinistercane

Morning Spacers

SinisterCane

Golden better win

YooperCane

Awesome, well written and point well taken! Umike you da man! You make a great point, we are all Cane fans in our own ways...right or wrong. One important thing I will point out is the child like name calling that has gone on here. Those who have done it know who they are. We are a brotherhood and we should treat each other as such, everyone one here puts their pants on the same way. We all bleed orange and green and have the same passion for our Canes. As far as I am concerned we are all family here on the Space so lets treat each other as such. We MUST protect this house and the family here in.
GO CANES!

UMike

Yooper..I 100% agree

Terrance Sullivan

Probably 4 and 1/2 hours Brotha. Via I-65 to Birmingham then taking I-59 to Chattanooga and vice versa.

Da U N Houston

Great blog post homie, hater or homer, you brought the truth!!!!

All of this will be squashed in 2015 imo.
A. AG wins 9+ wins and we bring in a great class.

B. AG fails (7 wins) and he is kept (which I doubt) and we loose the class and fan base completly.

C. AG fails and new coach comes in and saves the class.

UMike

TSully...were gonna have to link up one of these weekends...any big city halfway or close to? I've never been to Bama before

Go Canes

Story has gone national.

Awesome:

@FOXSports: #Miami recruit desecrates #FloridaState logo at Doak Campbell. #CFBAM w/ @TMitrosilis: http://t.co/FihzqRj2j9 http://t.co/6MKkmTlvUq

NativeCane

Great article UMike, Soup may be the Heart of the Blog............ but U are the Guts!

A real fighter!

Dem Canes!!!

UMike

Did dude say desecrates? lol

Old Skool

Desecrates?????

The FSU logo is a sacred place. What a crock!!!

The American Military cemtetaries at Omaha Beach and Normandy are sacred places.
The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is a sacred place.

A logo in the middle of Doak Campbell doesn't even begin to compare. It's just more media hyperbole from Fox.

Lurker

Desecrates?

That's a word that's a word that should be reserved for something that should be revered, for example, a religious symbol. Not for the dirt and grass clownish caricature that he's standing on, in a town where the university and the cops help cover up player crimes, and sell their souls to the devil for a shot to win more games.

Screw FSU

Terrance Sullivan

Birmingham works fine. U can come South on I-59.I can come North on I-65. I got some buddies that are Canes fans that live in Metro Birmingham and along with my buddies here in Metro Montgomery probably could meet up at a Sports Bar in Five Points South or Downtown Birmingham, or something like that. Go Canes!

Lurker

I didn't see your post before I posted, old skool, we are thinking alike!

Demons

Umike, mad props and laying it out there , you said what most of us wanted to , dude you hit it that one out of the park.

Demons

love the meat on the stick , good thing you didn't do the d&&k in the box thing .

Terrance Sullivan

Correction UMike we are about 3 and 1/2 hours to 4 hours apart.

Demons

'Taps'playing ,the long rendition until tonight for the 'Heat'

Terrance Sullivan

UMike I will link some of Us up on Facebook and let's pick a game Probably Duke or North Carolina.

CaneRock

McShay says PD4 can move up to the 1st Rd., in the mid to late 20s.

Terrance Sullivan

I hope my Ravens pick PD4.

CaneRock

Terrance...McShay said Baltimore was one possibility. Long as He doesn't end up in Buffalo,NE, & NY, I'm good...same with Duke.

CaneRock

Tell you what though, if Indy ends up with either Duke or PD4, that offense will go from potent, to illegal.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir Rock.

CoCane

UMike!

Best blog write up. EVER

Sarasota 'cane

Great blog post UMike! You don't owe anyone here an apology for anything you have ever posted.

There's a huge difference between being positive and just plain delusional.

Sarasota 'cane

So the 1 billion dollar stadium here in Atlanta is now 1.5 billion. And everyone here in Fulton County are still consumed with mythical "crab eating" poor people because they are too stupid to see real welfare abuse, even when it hits them right in their own pockets.

The Dude

^^^^ ding ding ding. Lol. Nothing beats the corporate welfare state.

The Dude

Sota,

If the world falls into chaos, you are welcome in my neck of the woods any day.

Sarasota 'cane

The world fell into chaos when UM lost to LSU here in Atlanta!

The Dude

True that. 40-3, yuck. I wanted Coker gone so bad after that loss.

CaneRock

Sota...what was wrong with Turner Field? Went to a Braves-Phillies game in 2010, and I thought it was a very nice ballpark.

Sarasota 'cane

You know what's funny rock is I was talking about the Falcons new stadium since I live in Fulton County. What the Braves are doing to Cobb County is borderline criminal.

There is nothing wrong with Turner Field. The Braves moved the team to Cobb County because the low intellect voters here cannot see a bad deal unless it's steamed and served with drawn butter.

Terrance Sullivan

Sarasota Is bringing the Heat. Keep bringing it my Brotha.

Lurker

I have family in Atlanta.

People are complaining, but the voters voted in both the Falcons and Braves new stadium. That's how the system works, even if we don't like the result.

Sarasota 'cane

Wrong again Lurker...

http://clatl.com/atlanta/what-does-atlanta-get-from-a-new-falcons-stadium/Content?oid=6922125

There are 50 more articles for each team which support my position. And look no further than the Miami Dolphins as to why there will never ever be any public input on corporate welfare for these billionaire owners.

Now we'll put the fox in charge of funding/building the hen house, but we'll never be given the choice of whether a new hen house is warranted.

Lurker

Actually the people I know up there think it's stupid.

Neither stadium is that old.

I don't know about the falcon Stadium, but I was just going by your comments about the voters.

"low intellect voters here cannot see a bad deal unless it's steamed" Those are your words, from which I assumed you were blaming the voters. Obviously, at the very least, voters put in those commissioners that vote these deals in, do they not? I'm asking.

Those local governments are elected. Do something about it.

Let's not get hostility get the better of us.

Sarasota 'cane

Agreed. My bad for being a dick. And I was referring to the folks we vote into office. It's all back room BS.

The Dude

Nothing is wrong with Qualcomm stadium either, except that it's no the shiniest new thing. Look how the Chargere are trying to do over San Diegans.

Go Canes

Would love to see this:

@mattyports: Al Golden strongly supports early signing period, which could soon come to pass in CFB: http://t.co/JuyLdPGN4Y http://t.co/7ZVTqNFVvB

Go Canes

There will be massive public contributions to Dolphin Stadium, it was all just disguised.

Go Canes

@mattyports: [ICYMI] Carolina clearly wants Ereck Flowers, but will be be there? Plus buzz on other Hurricanes prospects. https://t.co/K9xTA0Vg6Y

Lurker

No problem Sarasota The one that's really a head scratcher is the Braves. Tuner field isn't that old.

UMike

Laron Byrd signed with the Dolphins

As the verdict of life in prison without possibility of parole was read, Hernandez looked over to his weeping mother and fiancee and said "It's okay. At least, it wasn't two life sentences."

Old Skool, are U serious?

Posted by: Lurker | April 14, 2015 at 10:01 PM


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

The Braves don't own Turner Field and I believe there rents up in 2017. That's why they are building a new stadium, so the owners can make money off parking and concessions.....It's kind of like what the Hurricanes are dealing with, with Joe Robbie.

Turner Field has been paid for and then some from the Olympic Committee! I heard they are tearing down that stadium when the Braves move out. As a Braves fan, I'm happy the direction this teams going!

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

I think the voters are smart on this one. It's good for both parties to have the Braves in Cobb county. The stadium right now sits in southeast Atlanta so getting to the stadium is almost impossible during rush hour (If anyone been to Atlanta they would know).

With a smaller stadium they're building, and being a lot farther north will help pull more of their fan base from Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama.

It will create a lot of jobs for the people of Cobb County. Just think of all the restaurants, hotels, office buildings that will be built. Your looking at billions of dollars being pumped into the city.

thirstybuzzardcane

As far as the Falcons go, there is no reason to build a new stadium......That is just plain dumb!!!!!

j.w.

Fantastic blog! Loved reading this one.

Go, you have good points. But, (here I go offering unsolicited advice), reminding bloggers that you knew everything is awesome when something goes right annoys just as much. You're a good fan, I wish I could be as positive often times, and you get a lot of flack for it, which is not cool. But the other side isn't made up of only the "bad" fans either.

CaneRock


I heard they are tearing down that stadium when the Braves move out.

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | April 15, 2015 at 11:21 AM

"Tearing it down"?

Fulton County can't find a useful & profitable way to convert that stadium to something else?

Lurker

I doubt it CR. Maintenance, upkeep, and overall cost on a stadium that large is not worth it if you're only going to be putting small events in it.

Sarasota 'cane

I have no doubt the experience will improve for the Braves fan base, there's just no reason that the taxpayers should have to pay for it outside of buying a ticket.

And Go canes is right about the Dolphins. Ross is going to "donate" the stadium to the city of Miami Gardens. For that "gift" the city will be given all of the expense of maintaining the stadium, plus they will assume all of the liability. Then in 10-20 years they'll either squeeze the community for a new stadium or they'll move the team to another town.

It's welfare for billionaires. These franchises do not come close to paying back the free money we give them.

UMike

I read that the Miami Heat were suppose to help with homeless in Miami and never did...not sure the details, but they basically took the money and ran, forgetting their promises.

Sarasota 'cane

I read somewhere that Georgia State might buy Turner Field from the city.

Ohio_Cane

ESPN ACC ‏@ESPN_ACC 1m1 minute ago

A full offseason with Miami has been essential to Brad Kaaya's development. http://es.pn/1FL8sot

Lurker

As far as the Dolphins stadium, how do we know the city won't recoup its monetary inputs (for maintenance, liability, etc), and then some, coming out with a steady revenue stream and a positive ROI?

Just playing devil's advocate.

I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes and definitely not trying to start anything, but platitudes like "welfare for billionaires" are nice political slogans, but they generally mean nothing unless backed up by the cold hard reality of a verified balance sheet, or solid financial projections.

I'm not saying these projects are good ideas, bad ideas, or in between. I'm just saying I personally don't have enough solid information to pass judgement. I know I'll get a couple of links thrown my way, which I'll read, but unless these links are backed by solid verifiable metrics, I can't give an informed opinion. If I were a voting citizen in Miami Gardens, I would take the time to look at all aspects before I came to a conclusion.

Having said that, Ross didn't get what he wanted, as he had to put in a significant investment of his own. Compared to other stadium deals in other areas, they did pretty well down here in terms of having Ross assume more financial risk. For example, the baseball stadium in Dade, or the Glazers in Tampa
