Good for Newton, hope it pays off for em'.

Go Canes about to get banned. AGAIN!

Who is gonna tell me when McGregor knocks out Mayfeather?

Terrance Sullivan

Game week. Let's do this. Go Canes!

Dude

3rd Round SOUP, if it happens, not likely.

CaneRock

Well damn, McGregor actually won 2 rounds. I say 2-2.

CaneRock

3-2 Mayweather.

CaneRock

50-0.

CaneRock

Mayweather could've made that fight much easier, but He decided to walk him down, weather the storm, time Him, and take Him out.

Dude

Yeah, fight went as most predicted. Mayweather dragged him out to deep water. McGregor was completely out of gas and was barely able to stand on his feet.

Go Canes!

He who among you is without sin, cast the first stone....

Go Canes!

P.S. It's game week!!!

VA Cane

I say put the Kaaya thing to rest......like Grace slick said at Woodstock..."Its a New Dawn People!"
Then play on guys.....New team new era so lets get started and continue the win streak! I hope we come out sharp and Rosier leads. I look forward to THIS season as it is big for us!

I would never pay to watch that crap on tv; I would never give FM Jr a dime. A man who threatens his kids and beats his parnter is never a man ever! No doubt great boxer, not a real or good man.

Get that damn bus out somebody.....RCCF! Polish fix it lets get it on!!!!

TD...early on, McGregor's uppercut was kryptonite for that straight right Mayweather likes to throw. But I'm puzzled as to why He didn't have a follow up combo behind it...

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

If I come on this blog and it's dry as hell because nobody is posting... I'M GOING TO PICK ANY TOPIC I WANT TO TALK ABOUT LOL! So if you don't want me talking about Brad you better post up! Don't know about y'all but I don't like dry blogs

Thanks

My guess is that he thought it would knock him out. I dont think CM has the knock out power we think he has.

There needs to be a rule about this because I agree.

His mma instincts and conditioning were his undoing. Connor has to th8nk about boxing still Floyd is WAY past that.

The biggest thing everyone underestimates is the toughness of Floyd himself and boxers in general. They are murderous punchers and hardened to taking viscious shots. Connor has not been conditioned to take punches like this.

Shots he thought were fight enders were just normal landed blows to a champion.

Connor found out what BOXING REALLY IS!

VA Cane

I think FM Jr toyed with him to make it look good for the loving public. Conor, while tough in the 8 sider, was no match but was surprising a little bit....FMJr played. Personally I think they both are morons....losers.

looking forward to this season....nobody tough at first...can you imagine us going to Bama or LSU as the future may hold? We are not quite that ready, but we should have a good start, especially on the D side. We got to run the ball, get it to playmakers...block and tackle...and no TOs.

If we do that, and the D is stronger as it should be....we should grow this year have a really good season win the conference...play for the title...and make a good bowl!!!

Thats my hope!!1

Well played, Sir, well played.

SOUP

McGregor stuck to the (Vegas) script. He gave them what they wanted: a long, standard boxing match with a better boxer.

His only chance as I said BEFORE the fight was to go completely OFF script and turn it into a brawl and either knock him out or be knocked out in 3 rounds or less.

His chances of winning after 3 rounds were slim. His chance of winning after 5 rounds were very dim. His chance of winning after 7 rounds were none. He gave himself no chance of winning by allowing Floyd to stay patient, fight smart and wear him down. In the end that is what happened.

SOUP

Both fighters got paid, Vegas made their money and all went according to plan. Ho hum. Yawn.

Now, back to college football...

Alex D

I remember when there was talks that Ronda Rousey could beat Mayweather. The way that fight was scripted last night; if Rousey was in the ring she would have easily won a few rounds against Mayweather? Like PT Barnum said "there's a sucker born every minute."

"Football participation has dropped precipitously for some time. High school football enrollment is down 4.5 percent over the last decade, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations.

More schools are fielding football teams nationwide, albeit with fewer players, led by surges in such states as Oklahoma, Florida and Arkansas, which have added 150 football teams in the past five years. But other regions — namely the Midwest and Northeast — are shedding high school football programs at an alarming rate. Michigan has seen a net loss of 57 teams in the past five years. Missouri has lost 24. Pennsylvania has lost 12.

Even Southern California powerhouse Long Beach Poly, which has sent dozens of players to the NFL, gave up its junior varsity squad amid low turnout this summer. California is down 28 high school football teams in the last half decade."

Go Canes!

There aint no turning back CR. Football as we know it is a generation away from being extinct.

Go Canes!

Porter has the Canes going 11-1.

What a horrible mess, those poor people.

Houston won't be the same for years and years to come.

This thing will probably end up being the most expensive disaster in US history.

CR, I feel your concern. But football participation has been dropping for a long time, way before the concussion scare.

There several reasons for this:

1. Way too many alternatives of activity, especially phones and video game. This has also reduced the role of football as the go to rite of passage for young men to show their strength and desirability to the opposite sex.

2. Widespread feminization of young males both socially and physically means fewer aggressive boys brave enough to expend there energy on the grid iron.

3. Lack discipline makes many kids unable to take the hard coaching and accountability that we got playing growing up. They just quit when they get pushed or dont get what they want.

4. Lazy ass parents who will not take thier kids to practice and games.

The only people I have heard use concussions or other injury as reason for holding kids out of football are more well to do families who lean toward "liberal" politics. Otherwise its rare I see this given as a reason.

SOUP

TruCane81...well thought out response. You may have left one other reason out: The rise of soccer as a popular and legitimate sport in the U.S.

Go Canes!

Posted by: SOUP | August 28, 2017 at 10:58 AM

In suburban areas Lacrosse and boys volleyball is exploding in S Florida.

SOUP

To be honest, football with all of the associated risks and serious injuries that occur, is a very high risk to take as a sport given the less than 1% who ever make any money at it.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup and KYcane I went ahead and booked an additional room at LQ for Friday Night only and if yall decide to only stay that night and then leave then that will be fine and yall can let me know on Friday to cancel the original reservation to save yall some scratch if not I can can cel the one night stay and yall can keep the original reservation. That way yall have options. Go Canes!

thirstybuzzardcane

Wow! Jon Ford is at 318lb per Richt. They offered him when he was at 245lb.

thirstybuzzardcane

Richt also said he optimistic about the OL play. Said they are a lot better than last year.

WWIN

Lol. He will if he calls better plays!

HillViewCane

I feel like it's safe to say that at worst Kaaya was a top 15 college quarterback every year he played. You couldn't put 15 other guys over him. Top 15 at worst out of 128. We will be lucky if Rosier is as good. I hope he is.

You guys are right on both accounts. I was aware of the rise in soccer and lacrosse but not volleyball.

My sample size for my reasons is larglely fr9m the black community.

You guys could probably think of a few more.

TruCane81

The future of football is not as bleak as some fear in my opinion.

There are massive numbers of fans who would NEVER dare to strap it up and.bust heads.

Football will be fine if they can manage the concussion issue financially AND not alienating their hard core base ofr fringe fans who ditch you for the next big thing.

My between that and the nonsense espn does, my interest in the nfl has been waning.

DT WILLIS BACK ENROLLED IN CLASSES AT UM

A source told Canesinsight this afternoon that defensive tackle Gerald Willis is back enrolled in classes at the University of Miami.

In July, Mark Richt announced that the redshirt junior would be taking a leave of absence from the football season and would not compete for the 2017 season. Willis was not enrolled in classes at UM over the summer. He will still sit this season out and is not on the roster, but Willis could have the option of rejoining the team in January with one more year of eligibility.

Willis could technically also enter the draft following the season, as he is eligible to do so, but would be seen as a potential starter in 2018 with the possibility of Kendrick Norton and R.J. McIntosh having big seasons and turning pro as well.

A true freshman reciever waltzes in at 5'9" and snatches the starting z reciever spot?

Can anyone say baby Steve Smith?

Good to see the kid hanging in there. You see people quit in thse situations too often.

Hopefully he can get squared away and focused so he can maximize his potential.
