Gentlemen thanks for making this blog happen. I think it is the coaches job to push these players mentally and physically to a point where they are absolutely amazed that they can push through with anything the coaches dishes out. This will build an enormous amount of confidence which is needed on the offensive side of the ball. Most players on this team are true atheletes and when some come in with the hype they began to believe it. They are more than likely thinking they can come in and get the job done without the hard work. If the coaches fail to push them and they aren't self motivated they will fail. We have seen it the last few years. There must be strong leaders on this team that hold others accountable. Most people are products of their environments. One would hope that if the leaders are studying and trying to make the team better so will the others. I also know the players will take on the attitude of the coaches so I am expecting nothing less than an undefeated season. Go Canes!

I totally agree...anyone here who reads and is hesitant to post, go for it! We get sooooo many first time posts saying "I read all the time but rarely or never post". C'mon, this is your site, your chance.

For the Fans, By the Fans! Let's Go Canes.....

I just sent 86 my next piece for Hey Is This Thing On?
Hope he gets a chance to put it up this week.

Good point Cav,
I have to do layouts on construction sites most days and I don't get a chance to read all the posts. Letting it ferment is a good idea.

Love the new and improved vault, '86. Saving my stuff for closer to the season . . .

Cavaleer

Also, I think you should let a blog sit for a few days before posting a new one.

There's a great deal of information here and it's fun to read and react leisurely. Just a thought.....

Cavaleer

86, OGV should have his own Vault. Too many classic, stream of consciousness quotes from him to put with everyone else's.

CoCane is a straight up comedian. lol

Solar is a comedian too, but also a philosopher, like Steven Wright. Does anyone remember Steven Wright??? The funniest comedian I've ever heard....but he was too eclectic to go mainstream.

Cavaleer

86, my quote to the rest of college football is STRAP UP!...not STRAP IT UP. (Small adjustment...lol)

I just emailed you the next

Solar, great blog.

Legion, BRILLIANT WORK.

86, BY THE END OF THIS CALENDAR YEAR YOU'LL BE MAKING MONEY FROM THIS PUPPY! You heard it here first. Vault it!

I see my aces Dallas, Canez 1, CoCane, and Calvin are back in full effect. Where's Vince, DJ Moonbat, Daddeh, Troutman et al...

Zakk, I think you're going to get your wish. The SoFl ALL-STARS. Aqua, you said it best..."They'll OWN the NCAA."

I also like seeing all the new names. But ladies and gents, don't just read, SPEAK YOUR PEACE!!!

To speak directly to the subject of this blog, I believe the difference between the all-world HS players and the college greats/flops, is coaching and the college environment itself.

Let's face it, the Jerry Rice's, Emmitt Smith's, Michael Irvin's and Jerome Brown's, and Randy Shannon's of the world are very rare.

Most players, like most people, ARE VERY DEPENDENT ON THEIR ENVIRONMENT.

That's why some so-called 3-Star HS players excel and why so many so-called 5-star kids flop in college and never make it to the NFL.

It's also possible that the 5-Star recruits get lazy and the 3-Stars get hungrier. It would be interesting to do a study following 12 HS players all of whom go D-1, and see how they handle the mental and physical challenges on the next level.

All told, however, the one constant across the board in oUr recent slide was the mental-midget at the helm.

Now that we have a proven champion, on and off the field, we should expect our players to reflect his style and habits.

It is all in the head, after all.

In case my question was overlooked earlier -

Can someone tell me if we are still trying to recruit E.J. Manuel? Scout.com has him ranked as the 10th best prospect overall. Much appreciated if someone can fill me in for I am clueless at the moment.

StCane

Guys,
Never thought I'd say this, but...this blog is better than Omar's was! Solar has been dead-on. OGV killed today. Hope this can continue.

IndianapolisCane

Rivals has Indianapolis dual QB Marquis Gray rated above Jacory. I saw Jacory's video and I saw Marquis play three times last year. His team got killed twice by Warren Central. Gayturd recruit Jerimy Finch and Va Tech recruit Darren Davis' team. Jacory seems light years ahead.

CaneVAstud

Orange and Green in the Vein,
Dorsey had 38 victories as a starter...3 as a frosh (highest consecutive three game point total in UM history), 11 as a soph, 12 as a jr, 12 as a senior...that's 38...and i don't know if he started the bowl game against GT in 1999, it may have been kenny kelly, in that case he'd have 39.

“86” stands for:

1. I.Q.
2. Restaurant jargon for discard, or reject
3. Year graduated from UM
4. The goal for setting a new NCAA home winning streak.
5. All the above
6. None of the above
Posted by: HearAcane | June 20, 2007 at 10:18 AM

I'm going with #2, #3 and #4 above. The REAL answer is #3 which is the year I graduated from UM with a 3.7 average and honors, so that makes #1 (IQ) FALSE!

But, I like #2 and #4 too. After what happened to all of us at the SS site I feel like a restaurant #86 (discard) and I'd love to be there in person to see the Canes set the new mark at 86 straight home wins!

orange n' green in the vein

I'm on my lunch break at work right now, but I took the opportunity to e-mail little Stewie SI again, here's what it said:
Dear Stewie, you are a lazy, incompetent geek. If you actually did your job and EARNED your paycheck, you would have done what my message said and looked up the stats. That's when you would have discovered Dorsey was actually 37-2 as a starter. You see, moron, my last e-mail WAS A TRAP. One I goaded you into like the slack-jawed imbecile you have proven yourself to be. Instead of firing off a juvenile "this guy is high" response, you should have done some actual reporting in your mailbag, rather than your usual spouting off of uniformed opinions that is your bread and butter. (Mmm, butter) Now, a real journalist would take this opportunity to print a retraction, but we both know you're way too lazy for that. How about another love in about Tressel's sweater vests instead? The one thing I agree with you on is this: college football fans are more passionate than any other fans in the world. This is why we deserve better than hacks like you writing weekly columns online for our enjoyment. You are a tool, and a lazy one at that, SI should keep their employment standards higher than where they currently are if your weekly "insights" are any indication of the current expectations over there. Let me guess, according to you, "Pete Carroll has assembled the greatest college team ever to take the field again this year, just like in 2005." Please continue to refrain from sullying the legacy of the greatest college football team of all time, the 2001 Hurricanes, and stick to your myspace or facebook or page when spouting off your tripe. Remember Stewie, WE DO KNOW BETTER THAN YOU! CANES BABY! (PS: I'm SO frightened that I might have upset fans of inferior conferences! They should be upset about watching that slow version of football instead of the elite athletes that hail from Florida, greatest state in the union, week in and week out. Best of luck, fella.)
The guy is a tool, it was fun outing him for what he was.

Bet that up BBW. ;-)

Did anyone post the article about the new bball recruit?

Good evening Legion... Just wanted to let you all know that Omar emailed me back. He is on Vacation at the moment, and told me to hit him up when he's off of vacation. He seemed very willing to be a guess blogger. I'll continue to keep lines of communications open with him and keep you all informed as things develope.

Its a love-hate relationship we have with those a**holes:

We get pissed and defend the U when attacked, yet also revel in our "us against the world" rebel image. We all admit we wouldn't be 1/2 the fans we are if UM were like all the traditional football power schools. Its a game we play and we NEED the media to hate us in order to be able to play it!

Wow...shouldn't been a psychologist.

everything you wrote to (wo)mandell was soooo right on!

Great site 86. I check it everyday to see what's going on with the Canes and to see how the Legion is doing. I've never seen a smooth transfer like this. Not only is it like we never missed a beat from the SS blog, but its even better. We don't have to wait around until Omar decides to write a new blog. Love Omar to death, but not having an ego to negotiate around allows us to get straight to the substance: them Canes! Already getting jittery thinking about how soon the '08 season is going to get here. And hearing about Harris and Futch exhibiting leadership and recruiting the best of So. Fla. seriously gets me pumped. You can already see more leadership from Marve, Kayne, DVD, Futch, Harris and Johnson, guys who haven't even played in a game, than among the seniors on this year's squad. RS is putting the lockdown on So. Fla. talent and that means one thing for the rest of the NCAA: strap up and prepare to once again be pwned! The Empire is about to strike back. (Cue small blond girl, "They're ba-ack." Peace to the Legion.

P.S. Aldarius, let's make that commitment and start locking up the rest of So. Fla!

HERE YA GO COCANE:


RICHARDSON: Former Ely star Kenneth Boynton should transfer to elite prep school
Published June 20, 2007


The rumors about where he will play next season are swirling everywhere.

Chatter says it's a done deal Kenneth Boynton, now the former Ely High basketball guard, will be at American Heritage, joining a few of his summer-travel teammates.

The message boards say St. Thomas Aquinas is his final destination … well, maybe not final because Boynton is only a junior and has another season to change schools. Or maybe he teams with Pine Crest sophomore Brandon Knight, giving it arguably the nation's top two players in their respective classes.

The hot debate has raged since it was announced a few weeks ago he was transferring from Ely. There is no right or wrong decision to make here, but hopefully it ends with Boynton making the best one. He should simply leave in the rearview all the trophies, all the accolades earned here in Broward County and attend an elite prep school.

It makes sense for several reasons. Boynton was South Florida's most high-profile player last year, maybe the last two seasons. He entered high school having already earned a national reputation. After scoring 45 points the previous summer in the Big Time Tournament, the headline in the Las Vegas Review Journal Review read: "Freshman Boynton Projects As Prep Star."

The observation was correct. He led Ely in scoring his first season before averaging more than 30 points a game as a sophomore, leading Ely to the state championship. He was named the top player in Class 6A.

Before turning 15.

All of it was done in the spotlight and a local transfer would only cause him to play under even more scrutiny because it would mark his third high school (he played varsity as an eighth-grader at North Broward Prep).

If Boynton makes the decision to attend a private school, whatever coach he plays for will face the ever-common recruiting allegations.

If he chooses the public school route, there's a chance he might not even be eligible.

In that case, he runs the risk of the Florida High School Athletic Association investigating because this isn't exactly a junior varsity player switching public schools. This is a player who has been on everyone's recruiting list the last three years.

"It's everywhere, it's in everybody's conversation because he is such a good player," St. Thomas Aquinas coach Steve Strand said.

So good that playing another high school season might not even be beneficial. He has little to prove at the state level, and could only hurt his college recruiting if he has a bad season playing for a new coach and system.

A prep school, such as Oak Hill (Va.) Academy or IMG Academy in Bradenton, would offer Boynton the same opportunity as tennis and golf prodigies.

They allow them to play against the best competition to prepare for the college and pro levels and also provide a quality education, which the Boyntons have also stressed.

Think of it as Boynton receiving college basketball credit while in high school. A team like Oak Hill Academy plays a national schedule, traveling more than most Division II colleges. He will face the country's top players, basically playing a more structured summer-travel season.

And if Boynton struggles at prep school? The sixth-man at Oak Hill Academy can receive a scholarship to Kentucky or Kansas.

The Boynton family refuses to rule out prep school, but plan on keeping their options open. Right now, Boynton is playing at a camp in Virginia and should return from his summer tour late this month. Then he and his parents expect to make a decision sometime before mid-July when his summer-travel team, Team Breakdown, heads to Las Vegas for a national tournament.

Until then, the talk will continue regarding which school holds the winning ticket in the "Kenny Boynton Lottery."

Thanks for the new blog. COOL!

Big weekend for Live Oak, Fl. (North Fl. , an hour north of Gainesville) Kelly Jennings, Andra Davis and several of thier NFL pals are in town for the weekend hosting several events. From a free football camp for kids to a charity softball game.
Should be a good time.
Talked to Kelly this morning and says he is working hard in Seattle. He should be a starting CB this season. I thanked him for continuing our 1st rd. streak in the NFL draft and wished him luck in the upcoming season. Kelly was in that recruiting class where Butch bailed and Coker kept it together. No matter how you feel about LC, he did a heck of a job not screwing things up in the Butch aftermath.
Anyways, keep up the good work and Go 'Canes! U know it.

DallasTX Cane

Welcome cubancane. I'm confident you'll soon realize that you've found a home here! Middle of June and the CANE talk is flying fast and furious. Just wait till the season starts!

OGV, excellent reply to that di*khead Bro. What is he thinking?...that a CANE is going to care about pissing off ou fans or little 10+1 fans or usc fans or golden dome heads?? Don't think so.

aqua

bg1906,

gotta esssplain the meaning of "pwn" of me. sometimes stuff goes straight over that thing on my neck...

btw nice work on the site.

Esteban

yeah patrick nix definitely was limited talent wise. the back up was D. Craig. I can't lie i enjoyed watching Craig play for them. Not as much as watching James Brown for Texas, though.

Zakkee

Patrick Nix reminds of Kyle Wright without the talent (on ESPN classic). He's taking sacks and he refuses to throw deep. Hines Ward is out shining him for Pete's sake. Auburn brings another QB in on goal-line situations, I wonder if this is a preview of what he'll do with Kirby.

bg1906

Aqua.

You mean...

"We are going to pwn the NCAA!"

That's true PWNAGE!

cubancane

Just wanted to post for the first time. Im a HUGE CANE FAN, and didn't even know about Omar Kelly's blog in the SS until about a month or so ago. Used to go to the Heralds Cane message board a few years ago but got tired of that sh-t. Anyways when i stumbled on to the blog and read Big O and the legions commentary, i've been hooked ever since. About time i found a place where people actually love the U as much as i do and actually know what they're talking about! My real name is Oscar, also go by Big O but we all know who the real Big O is so i'll go by the name i used to use years ago on the Canes forum in the Herald. I don't post to much but i just wanna thank everybody who kept this thing going, '86 Cane and the rest of the legion. Not too long after i found Big O's blog, i read he was leaving and i thought i was f-cked. Thanks again for giving me a place to get my Canes fix.

Jake

the only other thing that would make these media mutts salivate is if Pacman went to the U

Three perspectives always prevail when dealing with the media:

1. The love they have for the Bowden family
2. The love they have towards Notre Dame
3. The hatred they have for Miami

Somethings will never change...

vince

Zakkee the haters always say we are living in the past. They fail to realize our history is a major reason local kids will stay home and right this ship. We are going back to the days of kicking asses and taking names. You can either win with us or lose going against us!

Esteban

Busby and Kannell ran the same shotgun offense. Their offense always featured a lot of the I formation though. Remember they used to line up in the I and then shift out to the shotgun - they started out in the I on almost every play unless it was an obvious passing situation.

as for our QBs who's Cunningham? I think your talking about Scott Covington. He took over for Ryan Clement not Ryan Collins. And I can understand the comparison between Clement and Kirby, but the thing is Clement didn't have the physical ability Kirby has. Clement couldn't run and his arm was dead after he had shoulder surgery - just wasn't the same. Covington definitely should have started over him once it was obvious that Clement's arm no longer was the same.

Zakkee

Our detractors and critics say that we live in the past (our past success), but they also live in our past unsuccess.

Good points Hearcane.

mr troutman

Don't worry Canes they'll be kissing and praising Miami at the end of the YEAR. I once heard that some people are going to die with RAGE in them for being so jealous and angry towards someone or something. One of the famous qoutes that they are going to be saying is " MAN I DIDN'T THINK THE CANES WILL DO THIS MUCH IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME"."COACH SHANNON HAS REALLY TURN THIS PROGRAM AROUND AND IN A HURRY TOO" mark it down 86 CANES and like Omar qouted " YEAH I SAID IT "

HearAcane

Este – not to create a pissing contest, but back to poor old Brock and every other quarterback of the Coker era (HC a& OC) excluding Dorsey. The Butch Davis/Larry Coker recruiting factory fell way short at the prime position. QB. And once on the roster, they made poor decisions as who to develop and start. Collins should never have been the starting QB. Cunningham had a huge upside but was never given a chance to develop. In spite of this he had a decent Senior season. Collins actually reminds me of Kirby. A lot of fire but instead of bombs, sends up scuds. As for Florida State and the shotgun, There were two quarterbacks between Ward and Weinke; Thad Bussy and Danny Kanel, both under center. You also had different OC’s. Again Bowden used the skills of the quarterback not a set system to secede. My main point, which I failed to make is that success breeds confidence and fortifies attitudes. If you are not giving your team the tools it needs, game plans, plays to fit talent and solid fundamentals, you breed mediocrity. Case in point OK vs. Boise; on pure talent OK prevails, on coaching, team attitude and execution, give the game to Boise.


Zakkee

balto, I hadn't seen your post when you figured the mystery man out yet.

G-pond

You know when you are winning the media when not much is going makes more of an incident than there is ,Ok USC is wnning they try to find things to write about them, if the U is not winning you wont hear a peep about us,a fight breaks out we are the worst team in history ,seems they cant forget about the eighties,everytime they are trying to get us to drop football ,cant even trust the papers in south fla anymore .

Zakkee

Zakkee, Mandel is such a tool. He wrote:

"Reminder No. 237 why you should never write into the Mailbag while under the influence of illicit substances. Now, not only are Christopher Whelpton's friends going to make fun of him for his incoherent ramblings, but he's managed to tick off fans of -- let me see here -- Oklahoma, USC, the entire Big Ten, Virginia Tech and Florida State, most of whom, in this age of MySpace/Facebook/Friendster connectivity, probably know someone who knows someone who knows Christopher Whelpton of Hollywood."

Again, kudos OGV!

Tim Brando tries to air us out.
