I didn't hear the CMR interview this morning, but I can attest to the impressive UM facilities. I was there on Saturday, and the IPF is coming together quite nicely. In comparing the IPF to other IPFs in college football, the UM IPF is going to be on of the better IPFs. The surrounding athletic facilities at UM also look just as attractive and appealing.

Terrance Sullivan

BWC1 Coach mentioned all that plus mentioned the 155 million dollar Dorms Facilities Project that will open next August that will be state of the art as well. Basically saying pretty much all the things that other programs were using be it Coaches, Players, Alums, or Fans of other schools that clowned Miami for a number of things say 10 years ago can no longer or wont be able to say that within the next year. Cant use Facilities joke anymore, Cant use Stadium Joke anymore, Wont be able to use dorms Joke anymore, Etc, Etc, Etc. cant use the nobody goes to the Games Jokes any more either. Ten years ago those could not stop running their mouths now they are so quiet U can can hear a rat piss on cotton! Quiet Please! (In my judge sitting in the Wimbledon Chair at Centre Court).

Yep.

BigWindyCane

The Urban Meyer situation is horrible. Ohio St. is probably concerned about the financial repercussions associated with severing the relationship without a thorough investigation. Meyer denies the allegations, so Meyer will not go down unless there is a smoking gun. This investigation will have to move quickly because OSU cannot start fall camp without a head coach

Didnt someone here call Meyer out in 2 years? BEER? TBC?

Our Canes are ranked #8 in just released USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll. The list is #1 Alabama #2 Clemson #3 Ohio State #4 Georgia #5 Oklahoma #6 Washington #7 Wisconsin #8 Miami #9 Penn State #10 Auburn #11 Notre Dame #12 Michigan State #13 Stanford #14 Michigan #15 Southern California #16 Texas Christian #17 Virginia Tech #18 Mississippi State #19 Florida State #20 West Virginia #21 Texas #22 Boise state #23 Central Florida #24 Louisiana State #25 Oklahoma State! I can dig this poll. #8 is where we should be as of now. That would put us at about 12-2 for the Year! Go Canes!

Old Skool

Ohio State number 3 in the coaches poll with one vote for number one.
Hmm It looks like Urbie can still vote when he's on
administrative leave.
It'll be interesting to see if he's fired/let go/forced to spend more time with his family/or suffering from a previously undiagnosed illness
that forces him to retire whether OSU has any votes for number one.

Had the Canes beat Wisky in the Orange Bowl, the Canes would be ranked higher. The Canes look strong, and all teams in the Top 10 are capable of making the CFP.

My focus is on the OL and QB. The talent is there in the OL, but it will have to come together. If Donaldson can drop some weight, Donaldson can go along way towards making this Canes line a capable force. If healthy, Gauthier and St. Louis will be solid. There will then be a healthy competition among experienced guards and talented newcomers at guard.

Terrance Sullivan

Big Facts BWC1 I would also add who will emerge as our Place Kicker as 3rd worry.

BigWindyCane1

The #8 ranking is the highest preseason ranking in over a decade. Each year, CMR has outperformed preseason rankings. In 2016, the Canes were unranked or ranked #25, and finished ranked approximately #18. Last season, the Canes were ranked #18 in the preseason, and finished ranked #13. I know this is a lot to ask for, but if CMR and the Canes outperforms the preseason rankings again, this could be a very special year.

BigWindyCane1

Also, that #8 ranking doesn't hurt recruiting. Once that IPF is finished and those new student dorms are finished, top recruits will be fighting each other for an opportunity to commit to play for CMR.

1. Even at FULL strength on offense that was NOT going to happen. I posted the Wisky defensive stats for the year and they played serious competition. They were simply a better team, hands down. And OH that OLine they had.

2. No comment, none needed.

Wisconsin actually played a very easy schedule, but I do agree with you that they were a better overall team than us, more than anything because of depth and experience.

Their defensive front seven was really experienced and really talented.

58 Straight

Miami had a good year in 2017 and was ranked right where they should have been to end the season in the 13-15 range. UM was not a top 10 team last year, especially after the injuries on offense. They showed flashes but were not consistent or deep enough to overcome the obstacles of a long season.

I really wish the two DTs had stayed rather than depart for the NFL. Teams will try to run at the middle, then LBs will be drawn up and the TE over the middle will be open unless #4 has something to say about that.

Herbieibis

We beat Wisky with a better throwing QB and some flags, that stayed in the pocket

Posted by: 58 Straight | August 03, 2018 at 10:21 AM

Wisky was definitely better, and having Herndon, Walton and Richards go down, as well as losing the turnover battle, didn't help.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Norton and McIntosh now wish they had stayed. With another outstanding season, McIntosh had a chance to be a first round or early second round NFL pick had he stayed. Norton had a chance to move up as well. As I can see from the current players on the roster, Gus Felder and and Kyle Bellamy would help them tremendously.

The new DTs will have to grow up in a hurry. Size will not be the issue, but lack of experience will be. But I recall the year Manny Diaz and Coach Kul came in, and they had Norton and McIntosh, who were lost or absent on Al Golden's rotation, and had them play at a much higher level. At Paradise Camp last week, the Canes DLs who were there all looked big and in shape. This line looks the part, and CMR's recruits are noticeably taller and bigger across the board. We will see if they can play on September 2nd.

IMHO, from watching him work camps and reading about his background, I think Jess Simpson will be a very good DL coach, but I am only projecting and I am no expert. That LSU game will go a long way towards proving to us that he can coach at this level.

Go Canes!!

SOUP... How will this work? Can you check with them? (We can't be the only people affected by this... ) There MUST be a way to have them split up a block of tickets and send them to more than one phone... Don't you think?

I have Heat tickets and they went to that format this year. You should be able to email tickets to anyone individually.

58 Straight

Once I receive them I will see how to distribute them. I am sure this will work out even if we all have to enter together? I have never done this and will not buy group tickets again under these circumstances. I do not need a new technology job as a ticket distributor. I HATE IT!

58 Straight

I will contact the UM ticket office and get info on how to figure this out.

Spoke to UM. They will send out an email next week with instructions on how to transfer the tickets.

BigWindyCane

Wow, OSU starting Fall camp without a head coach. Per ESPN:

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day has been named acting head coach. Day, 39, joined the staff in early 2017 as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He was promoted to offensive coordinator after the 2017 season and given the primary playcalling duties. Day played quarterback at New Hampshire, under then-UNH offensive coordinator Chip Kelly. He was a graduate assistant for Meyer at Florida and became a coordinator at Temple and Boston College before rejoining Kelly with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers. Day will lead a Buckeyes staff that includes former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano and former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson.

How long will Ohio State's investigation take?

The school has placed no timetable nor has it commented officially beyond Wednesday night's statement, which read in part: "We are focused on supporting our players and on getting to the truth as expeditiously as possible."

Yeah, eff that guy! He’s catered and curated to the most felonious football teams in history. This should come as no surprise. However, compared to his prior transgressions, this seems rather minor and I’m not sure losing your job is proportionate to the (alleged) offense. But, this is the times we live in. Guilty in the court of public opinion/social media - you done eff’d.

He's going down and wants to be sure he gets a big fat buyout by passing the buck to the administration.

The coach in question just denied he ever hit his wife. Then she presented texts showing he admitted it.

Why should Meyer worry about someone's personnel problems? He's already babysitting 100 kids as it is, in which he doesn't do a very good job of!

If you owned your own business, and you heard one of your employees is a drug dealer, are you going to turn him over to the police? Probably not!

Is everyone mad that Meyer's lied that he didn't know about it or that he didn't do anything?

He is the highest paid state employee in Ohio. He is the highest profile employee at it's largest university. He is constantly preaching morals and God. He;s supposed to be a mentor for young men.

His wife also works for the state and is a nurse for God's sake.

He kept a coach on staff who beat his wife, even while she was pregnant.

He lied about it when confronted.
