Doughhhhhhhh is all I can say to that


Thanx 86 I was bored.


Nexxus...no problem, that's what Canespace is for!

Canespace: Putting and end to boredom at work all across the country!


insidetheu.com has an article about Robinson saying his commitment to da U is solid. Good to hear.


VT defense laid back the last 5:00 minutes of the game. They should of kept on blitzing.

I hope the Canes (Walton) learned from the FSU game, that they need to blitz.....blitz...and blitz some more!

Great obsevation!!!!!!!!
They gave him all the time in the world those last 2 drives.

Pitt lost to Navy. I'm still convinced that Dave W is not a good HC. Like him though due to his ties to JJ. So, hope he does well...just wouldn't hire him if it were my decision...

What up CGNC?


That D was gassed at the end. The ends couldn't tackle and Ryan was running around people like Barry Sanders. He also made a couple of really great throws.


Anybody know the status of Chaz Washington? They keep saying we're down to 3 DTs with Hendricks, Dix and Holmes out. Chaz used his redshirt last year so I wonder why he's not a factor.


Hey DTC - just trying to catch up on the posts etc. I saw the end of that game last night looks like VT played soft on the last two BC drives, I mean Ryan scrambled but still looks like they could have brought more pressure


i think VT didn't do a real good job of rotating their DL. they didn't need to blitz most of the game cause the front four was supplying enough pressure. but they looked tired at the end. they should have blitzed once they saw that their DL's legs weren't there anymore.


I think Chaz is playing left.... Left out and riding the pine. If you are a DT and a DE is taking all the minutes(Vegas Franklin) then you are waaaaayyy at the end of the bench.


good bye OB.



LOL 86 - were you watching last night the picture of the cold, rain soaked fans at Lane Stadium - hopefully when you and I and Mrs. 86 go, it won't be wet - zoiks



alright, canenexxus beat me to it about them being tired.

DallasTX Cane

I watched the 4th quarter. VT's D dominated right up until that last 2 min. I agree with Este, they were gassed. Also, huge momentum shift with the onsides kick in terms of having energy to play when theres nothing left. Give BC credit too - they never gave up and kept fighting even after playing SO bad.

Maybe they are having a "magical" season?...


Don't worry CGNC. Mrs. 86 ALWAYS brings great weather and a victory to the UM games she attends (see FSU).

The VT game will be no different! A cool, clear, crisp night and a Canes victory 27-20 is what we are looking for.

DallasTX Cane

Thanks for that link Este.

This has been such BS. If they're going to tear it down and build a soccer stadium or apartments, etc. Why couldn't they tear it down and build a new OB for the CANES to play in?? Could have been multi-use for soccer also.


Why is Virginia not on the shortlist?


Oh sweet, sweet Lord above....I ask that you allow Sean Glennon to be the head quarterback starter when the Gobbler of Virginia Tech play the football tackle match with the Hurricane of Miami.



Blow...not sure why VA didn't make the list? Gotta ask OGV later.


LOL 86 - I wasn't worried - I have ponchos and a great waterproof lined stadium blanket if needed ;-D Yea a crisp cool night in Blacksburg and a win are in order ;-D


Nice! RoachCane77, his wife and a bunch of others will be joining us at the game in Blacksburg.

Roll call for VT! Who's in, who's out?

CaneVaStud last chance to dance. U gotta let me know by today if you are going to the game or your tix get sold to another Canespacer already lined up for them...

Hey Aqua,

"Don't Tase Me Bro"


Aqua...U gettin' tased fo sho! Where U been hidin' bro?


I'm Back And On Fire...Whats good Legion...I moved to ATL and its gettin to be good out here...Doin the Library net so posts are gonna few for a while but no more OKC...I'm in ATL now shawty...lol

Hey Aqua,

86, Gotta a bum wheel. Pain meds got me thinking hazy. Did BC really win? Man they slow, Calais and Moncur are gonna kill BC's freshman tackle. I hope they're undefeated when we play them. We Ready, We Ready....


Not CANES news But Miami news.... Ricky Williams might be receiving his re-instatement to the Dolphins, Camy has no comment on whether he will take him back or release him. Hey whatever it takes to get at least 1 win!


RCCF...good to see you back! Since U are in Hotlanta now we will be hangin' at your place next year for the GT game so be ready for the Canespace Crew coming through. Post here, post often.


RayChan, I used to live in the ATL, They grow em big down there, must be something in the water, so watch out for the tap water.
Try to get down to Stone Mountain and watch some Stephenson High Football, They are almost the MNW of GA. Or hop on over to College Park and check out Darrell Simmons from Banneker High. We are recruiting him hard, you will see why. The kid reminds me of Ed Reed.


Check out this Myspace page....U think he is solid?


Sad story of a Florida HS star and former Gator who may have made some bad choices that led to his tragic death...





Simmoms: "I'm strong and very athletic. I have great instincts and am a natural athlete. I'm like Sean Taylor Washington Redskins free safety). He was my size in high school and I think I play a lot like him.


Article from the SS about the FSU AD leaving December 31. This means that UM will not be the only school in the market for a new AD after this year is over.



Kicker gets off bench, makes points with arm
By Shandel Richardson | South Florida Sun-Sentinel

October 21, 2007

TALLAHASSEE - Miami Hurricanes kicker Francesco Zampogna experienced the highs and lows of being a football player.

This week he was benched in favor of Daren Daly for poor performance, but came up with one of the biggest plays in Saturday's 37-29 victory against Florida State. Zampogna completed a 26-yard touchdown to tight end DajLeon Farr on a fake field goal in the third quarter.

"I did lose my kicking job, but I knew I had one responsibility," Zampogna said. "I just took care of the one thing I was responsible for."

The play, which had been practiced the past few weeks, came when the Hurricanes needed a spark. They were trailing 23-17 and lined up for the field goal. FSU failed to notice Zampogna, not Daly, was on the field. Holder David Strimple flipped the ball to Zampogna, who threw a wobbly pass to a wide-open Farr for the score.

"I was thinking to myself, 'I hope they don't catch on,'" Farr said. "They didn't and the play worked out. What can you say? I can't complain."


Not sure if it was posted or not, but Dr. Krop (Miami,Fl) Cornerback Travis Howard commited to the Buckeyes.

Looks as if thats where Sabino is headed as well


Canes lose out on Sabino, Howard

Our Barry Jackson is reporting that the two top Miami Dr. Krop High prospects, linebacker Etienne Sabino and cornerback Travis Howard, have decided to cross the University of Miami off their list.

Howard, considered one of the top defensive backs in the state, said he orally committed this afternoon to Ohio State. "The atmosphere, the fan support, everything at Ohio State was awesome," he said. "I considered Miami very hard. But I did not want to be in Florida. I wanted to accomplish new things and meet new people."

Sabino informed UM that he is no longer considering the Hurricanes. Sabino, rated the 17th best player in the country by ESPN.com, has now narrowed his choices to Ohio State and USC.

Most of us here had predicted that Sabino was NOT going to be a Cane anyway, so no surprise there. Howard sounds like he wants to get out of town and go somewhere out of State.

Canespace wishes them BOTH the best of luck, until they play against the Canes of course!


I didn't want Sabino for us as a LB. Rather have the guys we have committed. I did want him as a DE though. And Travis Howard wasn't a necessity with Johnson, Harris and maybe Bryant on the way. Still sucks that the Buckeyes might get them both. I'm hoping they get swayed away by another team.


I wish them luck as well. We can't get-em all! Were going to be fine with what we have coming in..What's the news on TJ Bryant?


Great photo gallery of UM-FSU through the years from the SS:



Well one thing is for sure, tressel is no stranger to recruiting around Miami, i had a partner play for tressel at youngstown st., started at linebacker the year they beat alcorn st with steve mcnair at the helm, i believe i mentioned that b4, and howard did say from the beginning that he more than likely would leave the state, once agin, i'm just glad another kid from Miami got a chance to pick the college of his choice.

Howard will do well up their in buckeye land, and while i'm glad for him: 4 reasons stated earlier, that still doesn't negate the fact that, you either sign with us, or get beat by us. The run is coming, now with howard out the picture, freddie hammnods signing with the gators, that leaves the door wide open for travis bejamin and bradon harris and tj bryant to come in, and by theway, the only reason i wouldn't mind tj bryant coming to Miami from tallahassee is because his momma went to central back in the day, so we know what kind of stock he came from.

Otherwise i'd want him to go to Fsu so we could play against him. If we can get patchan, goodman, d.scott, of course harris and tj bryant, that'll set me str8 right their. The throw ins would be karnell hatcher, and it also seems like cj holton may bail out on Fsu come signing day, he may close his eyes and send his letter to Miami. Either way it goes, if we get 85% of this class to sign, it's successful, by the way, we told preston parker, either sign with us, or get beat by, lesson 1 down for him, who wants to be next.


I know it is still early, but so far, here is the POTD:

"By the way, we told Preston Parker, either sign with us, or get beat by. Lesson 1 down for him, who wants to be next?"

I feel a lot better about PJ commitment after seeing his my space page.


That's right buzzard, could it be any clearer? RT6 was on the job!

Here is a nice article from Manny at the MH:

LMAO, You a damn clown man.


Davon Johnson's myspace is decked out in orange & green as well.

I said Tressel or Butch would land Howard and Sabino yesterday.

Men's Basketball Season Ticket Prices Announced: Season Tickets are available for as low as $99.

Oct. 9, 2007

Coral Gables, Fla. (www. hurricanesports.com) - - The University of Miami Athletic Department has announced that men's basketball season ticket prices for the 2007-08 season will not increase for any section and will be lowered in some areas of the BankUnited Center.

Some highlights of the new ticket pricing are: There is no price increase in any section of the arena. Total prices (including season ticket and required donation) have been reduced in the following prime side-court areas:

1. PLAYERS--$623 per seat to $295 (this category no longer requires a donation)
2. ALL-STAR--$878 per seat to $480

General Admission seating has been reduced more than 50 percent, from $199 to $99 per seat. The amount of persons included in a Family Plan, priced at $475, has increased from two adults and two children to two adults and three children.

"The intention of our season ticket pricing is to allow even more fans to be exposed to ACC basketball," said UM Athletic Director Paul Dee. "The ACC offers the best of college basketball and our goal is to enhance awareness of the men's basketball program and introduce our product to more people."

Head Coach Frank Haith added, "Fan support is vital to the success of any team. We are excited about the upcoming season and are looking to build on the success we had at the ACC Tournament. With the maturity of our returning players, the return of Anthony King from injury (wrist) and the early performance of our newcomers, I am confident we can put a very competitive team on the court."
