Harry that would be great! Let us know what you think. I was told by a colleague that the tour was really great, and worth the cost. More feedback would be helpful.

Harry sorry I have not called you back, but I promise I will tomorrow CA time. How many tickets do you need for the game?

great rescue mission on Co!

Posted by: CGNC | May 02, 2018 at 02:09 PM

Funniest part was during our exfiltration of CoCane we never did see TSully again after his assigned "interrogation" of Stormy Daniels. All we found was a Malik Rosier jersey on the floor near the door and nothing else? He did not make the rendezvous point so I hope he made it back to tranqility base alright?

TSully if you are safe and sound please respond with the standard "all clear" code of: "The Eagle has landed.

Terrance Sullivan

Looking forward to it. Great blog 86. Looking forward to Our trip to Arlington Labor Day Weekend. Miami vs LSU. 4 months to Showtime!

Terrance Sullivan

The Eagle has landed. All I can say is Stormy rode Space Mountain All Night Long Daddy Wooooooo and that jumping off is a lot harder than jumping on Daddy Wooooooo!

DallasTX Cane

Tsully - Recommend U get some Tex-Mex while in Dallas. There is a Pappasitas near Cowboys Stadium and also a place called Mariano’s Hacienda. Get fajitas. Chicken is good, but beef a MUST in TX! Be sure to drink a lot of margaritas - on the rocks like God intended.

Terrance Sullivan

Mariano's Hacienda in Arlington is on the docket for Friday afternoon. Got to get a little Tex Mex!

DallasTX Cane

LOL. That’s not saying much for the room 86!

BigWindyCane1

Great article, Soup. Also, great point by TLJ that Booker T Washington HS had 3-Walton, Chad Thomas, UF receiver Calloway

Since Ice Sr. returned to Booker T., it has not been the same program. I am not sure why. It may be a temporary dip in talent, or it may be something more of a pattern. Booker T. has not kept that pipeline from the optimist that they used to have. Central, Northwestern, Norland and other northern county teams are pulling them in. Hopefully, they will turn it around.

I am back up in Michigan for awhile. But, bought a new place in Satellite Beach, and am waiting for it to be completed. Florida resident now. Finally. The only bad thing is that I am so far from South Florida. But, Canes on TV is good for me. Better coverage of the U on TV.

Glad somebody is showing him some respect!

Canes fan will be here to bash and say how wrong that article is in 3...2...1...

BigWindyCane1

One reason to extend CMR is season ticket sales. I heard Blake James say that the 2018Canes May make history because the Canes have almost sold out season tickets for football, and that has never been done before in program history

86Cane

Play in the ACC Championship game?

Get an extension.

Win the ACC Championship game?

Get the Title!

This current extension is simply to show recruits stability at the top. That is all. But needed.

Go Canes!!

Comparing CMR to any previous coach, at any other time, under any other circumstance is absurd.

One is a Hall of Famer, a proven winner at the highest level for two decades.

The other three were bad hires that looked good at the time but ended up being three different kinds of disasters.

Why in the world wouldnt we extend a coach that brings respect, continuity, class and winning to our program.

86Cane

Go...I read the first line of your comment above and knew INSTANTLY, even before seeing who wrote it that it was you! You are nothing if not consistent.

Terrance Sullivan

Preach Go Canes!

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 86Cane | May 05, 2018 at 09:18 AM

Ditto.

Terrance Sullivan

When continuing to kick the ant pile goes wrong!

JCane

I don't think it's a coincidence that CMR got an extension at the same time Smart did. With recent somewhat negative comments from a former UGa player, the U is not only showing stability to recruits, but confidence. Hope it turns out to be well founded.

MLAlumni1970

Hey RaizeCane
What city do you live in? Didn't think there were many canes by Satellite Beach.
But, on the other hand, I am nowhere near Tally or Gainesville, thank the Lord. Always staying away from the Gators and the Seminoles. I can exist with the Gators, but never the Seminoles. There is a price to pay when you meet the Lord. Never Seminoles.

WWIN

He still had 3yrs left on his current contract and is NOT going anywhere! He's retiring here... he's said it before. Why extend a coach early when he has ZERO intentions of leaving???

If you thought he might leave I would understand. It's not like it's in recruits head's that he might not be here

WWIN

When boot licking goes right on cue!

BigWindyCane1

CMR is the best coach the Canes have had in nearly two decades. The Canes are winning games, attracting high level recruits and selling out games. It’s important to keep the momentum up because the two major instate programs, Gators and Seminoles are down, but they won’t stay down for long. USF and UCF are also strong. Recruits love the U right now, but winning makes us relevant in the recruiting world. CMR also has that new indoor practice facility (that he invested $1 million of his own money in) coming this summer, and that should create more buzz.

I love the direction CMR is taking this program. Blake James was wise to extend CMR to show recruits, fans, CMR and his staff that the U is truly committed to winning football games

Terrance Sullivan

everything BigWindyCane1 and Go Canes said and take it a step further Look at the National Landscape not just limit it to Florida. Wins are Up, Revenues are Up, Facilities are Better and Getting Better, U keep the momentum going, Or u can be that cheap stupid Assclown that stands pat while everyone else is making smart moves to stay ahead of the game instead of falling back by resting on its laurels like we did in the past by being cheap, stupid, Assclowns and before U know it you have a stale product which became incredibly mediocre, laugh out loud embarrassing facilities, revenues down, fan support mediocre, interest mediocre. But hey lets wonder why we are doing this? Being Cheap, Stupid, and Assclownish is sticking to the old script WWIN? Any further questions? Thank God U are not the AD? Geezus!

Go Canes!!

Boot licking.

Lmao.

Terrance knows what’s up while others want to run this program with a loser’s mentality. Got burned before so don’t do anything.

Kids want to hear a coach say he’ll be here when they get here and he’ll be there when they leave.

In case math isn’t your forte, we’re recruiting young men who’ll be graduating 6 or 7 years from now.

Program has never been in better shape and they cry police are living in the past.

Just keep on doing what you’re doing BJ, CMR and company. Don’t listen to the scairty cats.

Terrance Sullivan

Preach Go Canes!

#ScairtyCatStrut

Terrance Sullivan

Lol people are acting like Blake James signed him to a 10 year extension and doubled his salary. Relax!

WWIN

First of all nobody is mad we extended him... just premature which is the truth! Why rush it when he's not going anywhere???

WWIN

Lol people act like he's going somewhere else. This is delivering the baby in month 2 without any complications 🤣🤣🤣

WWIN

Posted by: Go Canes!! | May 05, 2018 at 01:11 PM

One of the dumbest post ever! Loser mentality? You loved Golden and Kaaya but hate Butch and Rosier... You are a walking definition of loser mentality!

What recruit thinks CMR is leaving or his job is in jeopardy??? Answer: NO RECRUIT IN THE COUNTRY!

WWIN

2yrs from now if CMR doesn't work out... we'll have a bigger buyout to pay

Terrance Sullivan

Go Canes Yep WWIN got a losers mentality.

TonyCane

Lol Terrance...are you referring to Donna?

SinisterCane

Correct me if I'm wrong but has a coach received an extension on a 3 game skid?

Terrance Sullivan

Sure I am referring to Donna, Tad, and the Athletic Directors at those times.

86Cane

Correct me if I'm wrong but has a coach received an extension on a 3 game skid?

Posted by: SinisterCane | May 05, 2018 at 09:27 PM

Not until now.

But it goes with a piece of key lime pie from Jimmy Johnson's restaurant in Key Largo so I guess it is OK? Oh wait, Richt has NOT met with JJ as far as we know? #FalseRumors

86Cane

#FakeNews

Terrance Sullivan

Lol actually he has at the UMHOF and actually on Campus before the Syracuse Game.

TonyCane

Lol Terrance...it was all one amorphous blob of defeat and penny pinching.

Terrance Sullivan

Yeah okay Tonycane. Yeah we were just doing great and taking care of everything in the 80's and 90's as well wasn't we but had facilities worse than some high schools much less low level colleges or much less power 5 schools, didn't want to pay coaches and as soon as coaches won enough they dipped. But sure just blame Donna for everything. Tad was a penny pincher as well. But evidently you have a aversion to the truth. Some of Us can say yes Donna didn't do the best job, but I also know Tad was no better. Our AD's were okay but no Great Shakes either. Any more questions Tonycane or are you going to act like WWIN and just sidestep and act silly. I always lol at those who act like the president only matters. Why do you have AD'S for you know the people who run the Athletic Department but you never talk about them. Weak Sauce. WWIN comes with what if Coach Richt is fired in 2 years but says he has the ultimate winner in Malik so what is it WWIN lol. U guys are batting a 1000 today. Pure Comedy!

JCane

The U blows the lead in the 7th and 8th, but scores 2 in the 9th for the 8-7 win over Bethune Cookman. Riding a 3 game win streak into the third game of this series, any shot of a postseason bid (unlikely) now involves almost perfection the rest of the way. They still have two more ACC series left in B.C. and V.T., and need to find a way to get the total and ACC records over .500.

Go Canes!!

WW I know you get confuused when things get complicated but that one comes totally out of left field, even for you.

Why do I "hate" him now?

Cause I said I wasn't sure if he'd be the right fit for us here right now?

Come on.


TonyCane

Terrance, I might have been unfair, but this is how I see it:

1) Tad Foote - did not spend huge amounts on the athletic program, but the coaching salary escalation and facilities arms race were not yet underway. We had poor facilities - I've read Cane Mutiny and they were so bad in the late 70s that Schelly wouldn't show them to recruits - but it was partially par for the course. Several NFL teams - including the Dolphins - had subpar facilities that were barely better than high school level.

2) Donna Schalala - Coaching salary escalation began in full force at the beginning of her tenure, as did the facilities war. She chose to be conservative and gamble that giving Randy Shannon the resources for a low cost staff would allow the winning and revenue to continue, and it didn't. We got lapped for Florida and a milieu of other schools as we fell further behind. No nuritionists. No meal plans. Players eating once a day - at McDonalds and leaving the U in 2010 weaker than they arrived as freshmen. This was all known. Golden pushed for upgrades - and didn't even get the nutritionist until 2013. Shalala and the admin chose to run a budget program at a time when other schools were spending tremendous amounts of money, and we came perilously close to being left behind.

TonyCane

And Terrance, I don't blame Donna exclusively. The AD and admin share blame. Perhaps the penny pinching was no worse under Shalala than with Foote - that could be the case. Perhaps it just became that much more obvious when the coaching salary escalation and facilities war began st the beginning of the 2000s

Terrance Sullivan

Okay Cool TonyCane. I can Dig It Brotha. We are on the same wavelength now.

Terrance Sullivan

Our Canes Baseball Team is Bloody Awful this year. SMH.

At no point did Al Golden look like a good hire.

JCane

U baseball wins 4th in a row and completes sweep over bethune cookman today, although in ugly fashion. Ugly is the only way they win. Blew an 11-4 lead before scoring 1 in the 9th to win 12-11. I'll take wins anyway I can get them at this point. The win gets them a few games over 500 at the Light at least. Road has really sucked..

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly JCane!

WWIN

Great idea offering a coach that said "THIS IS MY LAST STOP, I'M RETIRING HERE" in year 3 of his 5yr contract! Recruits were really nervous wondering who our coach will be 4yrs from now!

Same fans that kept believing in Golden!
🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

He was basically the same guy as Jimmy Johnson when UM hired him.

AeroCane

Good morning
In a bit of off topic news:
Andrew Suarez got his first win of his career for the SF Giants over the Braves! Hopefully the first of many more for our ex Cane!

PS for those that know me and my daughter - she is deciding between UCLA law or vandy law - entertainment and sports so Ucla is #1 but far away - we will see

Go Canes!!

I remember all three being popular choices, probably because they were.

And I remember all three falling from grace for very different reasons, with this prgram ending in a similar place.

Now they are gone and CMR is here. Their failures are not his failures and his successes are not their successes.

One has a hall of fame resume, the others had limited success before and virtually none after.

You don’t make decisions on a coach who’s top 5 in active coaching wins based on the fact the people before you f-ed up three prior hires.

Smart, long term thinking people with a plan don’t function that way. Stupid people with only the capacity to look backwards to decide what to do going forward do that.

Go Canes!!

Loved it.

Atlanta now.

TonyCane

The contract extension is not surprising. It is done for a few reasons, and none of them have to do with UM largess:

1) CM Richt has not intentions of leaving, but if two years from now UT, Alabama, or an NFL team were to make an offer, we would have wanted to have kept his salary on pace with the escalation in coaching payouts

2) It sends a message to recruits that UM and Richt are committed to each other. I think it’s highly likely that other coaches are telling recruits that Richt might leave, and if we waited until the final year to extend him it probably raises some doubts.

My guess is that the extension is due to these, and probably more of the former.

86Cane

Tony...I agree. It is to show L/T stability in the program at the top. No complaints here.

Terrance Sullivan

Will WWIN constantly hanging from Rosier's nut-sack prevent Malik from having children later in life?

Also, Richt inherited a 6 game losing streak to FSU and thats over, he also won the Coastal.

All good points, well taken.

Now, about the offense...can we fix that?

Also very good points. And beat Notre Dame!

86Cane

NEW BLOG IS UP!

His Royal Dudeness

It also seems like during the last decade, we never really knew if Miami actually had the best team in the Coastal... VT, GT and UNC all had good teams from one season to the next. Those teams still do have their nice squad every so often but Miami is clearly the favorite in any matchup now. We got this train moving.
