The heart & soul. GO CANES!

So here is what I have to say:

All of the liberal minded donors who want to sponsor college athletes do NOT ask others to do so! Please send your money to me and then I will ship it out to the athletes at UM via the Hurricane Club. Trust me 100% will go to the athletes! I assure you it will.

Send emails to: tompopadak@aol.com

Call: 352-217-0875

I will be glad to help you spread your wealth! And I will guarantee U not one single person will reply or respond. If they do you will have my word that I will publish it here.

Now, where are the donors???

Gimee, gimee, gimee...that's all I ever get from you!

I thought righties were free market supporters? Nope, they just support the robber barons.

CaneRock

SOUP, my argument wasn't for these kids to be paid...but in the case of kids like the one at UCF, or even Chad Thomas at UM, I do think they should be allowed to make as much as they can in their off the field endeavors.

To clarify, I don't think the schools should be paying these kids. That money should go to kids with more important pursuits.

DallasTX Cane

Man!...my first first in years and...crickets. lol. Guess I missed a hot topic.

Based on TV ratings and contracts, I'm not sure our society believes there is a more important pursuit than the N-F-L...!

DallasTX Cane

Anyway, time to GET HYPE for THE CANES! Expecting big things this season. Worried about QB play. Remembering guys like Jim Kelly and Bernie Kosar and Gray Crow (huh?)... first year starters can do great things and the players are in place around the QB. OL needs to get nasty.

Go Canes!

This makes NO sense.

What you're doing is the completely Un-American thing, not those who want to give the players more.

We live in a supply-demand capitalist society yet college athletes are forced to make nothing as others make millions off the fruits of their labor.

There is no need to sponsor anyone, college football and basketball already generate billions in revenue, with the players responsible for it get screwed by a system they can't possibly change.

Simple 401K question......I have option to add 1-3% to my contribution. With the market being so good should I do it or not?

Thanks

Go Canes!

Always Raize, especially if they match.

Go Canes!

Even with the ups and downs of the market, the tax deferral coupled with the matching plus time in the market is always a great strategy.

Seriously, do you do this on purpose? I really think you enjoy causing havoc! Your the one who always start political talk and are always on the other side of the coin. Its getting very old and tiresome!

LOL...He knows, He's just acting dumb.

But TBC did make a good point in the last blog about nobody wants to see minor league football. Until they come up with an alternative that a lot of people will actually pay to watch, this is what we're stuck with.

Same time though, the players have more power than they realize.

raizecane

Thanks gents.....much appreciated.

But this IS minor league football, only the players arent compensated based on market value because the NFL has a monopoly and the NCAA bars players from signing with agents.

Where do you apply to be a robber baron?

Forget about paying the players, pay the bloggers!

John Reaves of Gator flop fame dead at 67.

http://www.tbo.com/news/obituaries/john-reaves-former-robinson-gators-and-bucs-quarterback-dies-at-67/2332344

He broke Jim Plunkett's NCAA mark (7,544) notoriously via the "Gator Flop," in a 45-16 rout of Miami in the 1971 regular season finale.

Reaves was 10 yards shy of Plunkett's when UF's defensive players fell to the ground — literally — and allowed Miami to score a meaningless late touchdown, enabling Reaves to get the ball back and eclipse the record.

Old Skool

Yes. John Reaves has taken the final flop. RIP

A product people will pay for? CFB tv deals are worth billions.

I missed the previous blog's argument, so I'll just throw my support behind my man Go!!

HillViewCane

Is ownership deleting post with no obscenities, no name calling, and nothing anti-canes just because of differing sports opinions?

No, I was saying as an alternative to the NCAA for kids coming outta HS that want to get paid. I remember reading about an experimental league that some NFL guys were gonna try out, but I don't see people paying for that.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir Sinister Cane!

Political Statement:

As a economics lefty, I can really understand the distain for the social issues left. I imagine there are righties that feel the same way about their side.

HCanes1

No political statements!!!!

^^^ Fine. 😂

Scout states that the DL Ford is expected to report next week

HillViewCane

Also be very careful with any post that disagrees with management because you will run the risk of having your peaceful, non-insulting, sports related post deleted (even after not returning insults in kind) because... well I don't know why they get deleted in those circumstances. Silencing dissenting opinion I guess, or maybe cowardice. Hope that isn't the case but who knows. Seems we are adults here and I'm taking my ball and going home actions would be beneath us.

HillViewCane

That being said I do sincerely appreciate the effort of those running the blog. I understand it's a labor of love and I have been provided with years of enjoyment because of it. So sincerely thanks for that!

Your welcome. It takes up a lot of my time but well worth it :-)

BigWindyCane1

I feel pretty good about the defense. This defense is big and fast in comparison to the defense under D-No or even Shannon. I anything short of a top 10 defense will be disappointing.

Agree 100%

BigWindyCane1

Canes are #18, but Louisville is #17 and Gators are #16. The Canes finished 2016 ranked #23, which was ridiculously low. I think there is a great opportunity for the Canes to move up significantly. Virginia Tech is ranked #22, and no other Coastal team is ranked. This is the year for the Canes to reestablish dominance in the ACC. It starts by winning the ACC Coastal first. The Canes are obviously favored by everyone to win the ACC Coastal. Winning the ACC Coastal will be huge. With steady progress under a new QB in the toughest conference in college football, the Canes have a legitimate shot at finishing among the top teams in CFB and going to a major bowl.

Terrance Sullivan

Well they finished #20 in AP poll.

Terrance Sullivan

I am cool with the #18 ranking. I am interested to see where the AP poll will have us I guess it will be similar. BTW last season we were preseason unranked.

Did three cane players get DUI's last week? I think someone is pulling my leg but I haven't kept up lately because of work. (Former Gator player that works at my company.)
