Cane Since 1982

Cat5,

It sounds as if you may have stepped to the front of the closet. I am sure no one will say anything or poke any fun if you open the door and pronounce your true love for LT.

Cane Since 1982

Sorry cat I just had to jump on you a little more.

SuperCooper

KL, I heard Holton did qualify.

Fingers crossed on the others.

I think B. Wash tried to cram and we all know how successful cramming is.

He qualified, it is just the clearinghouse that he needs to get by.

82... Laughing out loud... It's All Good! When you got... ya got and ya can't take it away.

SOUP

Trust me if any of you were there during the interview you too would also loudly proclaim from the top of (the OB if it were still there, sad) Dolphin Stadium:

I LOVE LT!!!

He's just a great guy and Tru U to the core.

Part III on Tuesday at 8 PM. LT talks about the team, the coaches and the players to watch for in 2008.

SOUP

Cat5...TOP LEFT!

Cavaleer

"And why is the Sun-Sentinel featuring Mike Bianchi? He's an Orlando guy, and falls all over himself praising that school up north. Disgusting."

Because the SS is closet Gaytor. lol

In all seriousness, I believe they're in a Gator heavy area of SoFl.

Someone from SoFl verify or correct that for me.

DallasTX Cane

GREAT interview series 86!

This is real VALUE provided to CANES fans everywhere. FANTASTIC!

If anyone hasnt read CANE Mutiny, there's some great stories about LT especially about Playmaker's role in recruiting him.

LT is certainly a great CANE and I hope he realizes that dream to coach the WRs one day.

CONGRATS on graduating Lamar...another fine accomplishment.

MaryLouAlumni

Vince----Thanks so much for the good words and the good vibes. Things like this make you re-examine what matters most. My honey is doing much better, and is home from the hospital. Total life change in the future with eating, medication and stress management. After Tim Russert and the great George Carlin, I am truly blessed, and the Legion keeps me strong. Who knows, I may lose a few extra pounds too with all this healthy eating!! Thanks again everyone. I may not blog too often, but I read Canespace all the time. You guys are so much more informed technically about every sport, but I'm with you all the way.

The SS is partner paper of The Orlando Sentinel which IS a GATOR rag, hence the connection.

In addition, it is a business decision. They let The Miami Herald have the Canes (9,000) and cover the Gators (100,000) and Noles (30,000) which have a larger student population and fan base.

It's all about the $$$!

Old Skool

There's another angle to Orlando Sentinel articles. By sharing content, they can spread the cost of acquiring it - still provide the same amount of information, but use fewer reporters to gather it.

Newspapers are in trouble. Readership is way down, the demographics are aging and a lot of advertising are migrating to the web. They'll cut corners anyway they can.

Jake

86. Is LT working on his Masers, or does he just enjoy continuing his education?

What class is he taking with all the current players?

BTW, great interview. Lots of fun inside info. especially the story about him and GT.

Keep it up
Go Canes!

Skool...U got that right! It is WORSE than you know, trust me.

SOUP

Jake...here's the thing, LT trusts us because he knows we are Canes fans and he knows we don't have any hidden agendas.
He's been burned by other media types who wanted to create hype and controversy.

He was very open and even shared stuff "off the record" that will never see the blog. We can keep secrets and would never violate his confidentiality. That's how you make and keep friends too!

The class is a film/drama class I think? Have to check to confirm.

I'll find out about the Masters degree thing soon. You might get the chance to ask him yourself on the blog Tuesday night at 8 PM. We are trying to get him to commit to that time but not sure just yet.

Or if you attend a Canespace tailgate party at TNP Stadium this year U never know who U might run into...

The difference between football and baseball according to the late great George Carlin

Comedy great George Carlin died Sunday of heart failure at the age of 71. This is a reprint of his classic bit "The Difference Between Baseball and Football." Excerpted from Brain Droppings by George Carlin, Copyright 1997, Comedy Concepts Inc. Published by Hyperion. All rights reserved.
Baseball is different from any other sport, very different. For instance, in most sports you score points or goals; in baseball you score runs. In most sports the ball, or object, is put in play by the offensive team; in baseball the defensive team puts the ball in play, and only the defense is allowed to touch the ball. In fact, in baseball if an offensive player touches the ball intentionally, he's out; sometimes unintentionally, he's out.

Also: in football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and all sports played with a ball, you score with the ball and in baseball the ball prevents you from scoring.

In most sports the team is run by a coach; in baseball the team is run by a manager. And only in baseball does the manager or coach wear the same clothing the players do.

UM runningback commit and brother of Arthur Brown, Bryce Brown, plans to enroll at UM early

Actually I was very happy to read positive things about LT because several years ago a book came out about violent athletes and LT had a reputation back then of roughing his girlfriend up pretty bad. As far as the man crush thing, hey we are in the year 2008, it is fine for men to express their feelings. I finally admitted to my girlfriend while watching dancing with the stars, that jason taylor is a good looking man!

vince

George Carlin was a very funny man. Remember the piece he did on cuss words you can't say on TV? That was a classic!

DallasTX Cane

RIP George Carlin. Funny man that made brilliant observations about life.

//

You're cracking me up Vince! LOL

LT36

that Girlfriend ended up being my wife, we actually went on to have two very fine young men.

DallasTX Cane

Is that really U Lamar?

If so, let me say that it was a joy watching you play. U provided CANES fans everywhere with so much to celebrate. Thanks for letting 86 and Co interview U. There's no way this fan base could get thru the dog days of football-less summer without specials like this on Canespace!

LT36

that book that you talk about was called pros and cons. I wouldnt help the guy who wrote the book so he took my police report. Im not saying nothing happened that night, because it did, But that police report wasnt all true. believe me if it wouldve gone down the way the book states, i would be the first to man up. The media has its way we all know of running with things to help sells. But they are slow to print any apoligies. and thats ok, they( the media) have made me a better man in the process.

KLCaneFan

Apologies and retractions aren't as "interesting" as shock value stories so the media won't run those over and over again like they would a story. Unfortunately the society we live in craves that kind of crap... look at the check-out aisle magazines. I don't believe the media made you a better man, you did that on your own and, I'm sure, with the support of your family and friends.

vince

LT regardless of what happened in the past what is important is what you are doing now! Congratulations on completing your degree!

SuperCooper

Kenny Boynton cuts Miami from his list:

"Kenny Boynton narrowed his list of schools to five. He said his finalists are Georgia Tech, Duke, Texas, Memphis and Florida. His plan is to take visits following AAU Nationals in July."

Sucks, but Haith will get his. Get guys that want to be Canes like DeQuan Jones.

vince

KL I don't think all of society craves stories about the failuers of athletes and entertainers but domestic violence is a major issue with many professional athletes. A month does not go by where you don't hear a story of an athlete smacking around his ex and that is tragic. I am raising two young boys to be men and I would hurt both of them if they ever smacked around their future wife or girlfriend regardless of the circumstances. I think LT can act as a positive role model to the young men attending the U.

LT36,

Glad to have you here. I'm the video game analyst here at Canespace and have been playing games for a while. I'm 35. I loved playing with the '91 Canes on Bill Walsh College Football back on Sega Genesis! LOL. You were a beast on that game! LOL. Congrats on your degree. I just recently finished my degree too, as I left school early to take a job as a web developer (money was too good to say no). I finished at the same school Canes great Ray Lewis did (Univ of MD - Univ. College). I'm currently working on a Dual Masters in IT w/MBA. Keep purusing your dreams bro and mad love to you from all of the entire Legion!

Go Canes!

DallasTX Cane

Domestic violence is a serious issue, but regardless of the specifics...LT IS a positive role model for current and future CANES. More like him are needed.

Jake

don't know if anyone cares, but Ohio State hauled in some pretty impressive recruits this weekend. Also, did anyone read that guy on ESPN's (Mandel i think) games that changed the college scenary? He said the OSU vs. UM 2002 championship game. Have to admit, Tressel is a hell of a coach.

Seoul Cane

LT,

I think you're fantastic, as a person, on the field, and in the booth. So, please don't take offense, because truths and memories change with time, but do you remember this...

I was at the U from 90-94, and my suitemate was an Omega...he said one time he "knocked you out" during a fight on campus; it may have had something to do with him or someone else leaning on your Mercedes one night. Was there a football team v Omega fight when you were at school back then? Again, I have no reason to ask other than just being curious; for some reason, I just always have remembered that story.

Take care and thank you for visiting Canespace!

Cavaleer

LT, if you're still there, here's my question...how long and what will it take for these WRs to HATE DROPPING PASSES the way the Ruthless Posse HATED dropping any pass??

I watched that Nebraska NC game and after every dropped ball you guys were pounding the dirt like someone had just stolen your first-born son.

Otherwise, you're all class and a Classic Cane to me. F*ck some two but hack journalist.

Cavaleer

CGNC, thanks for that. I don't think it's a surprise but definitely a great momentum builder.

Those Brown Brothers are very serious, thoughtful young men. It's great to see.

The Sentinel cut half of its financial group... All of the Orlando-side financial people lost their jobs, and now the SoFla part has taken over both

Loco

we'll have to get a picture with you and the Gator Hator stickers that Solar is sending sometime

Loco

LT36, thanks for dropping by

Loco

stupid typepad...

LT36, thanks for stopping by, we'll have to get a picture with you and the Gator Hator stickers that Solar is sending sometime

that's what ti was supposed to say...

Cavaleer

Loco, it's a natural and gradual shift. Most of those people who were fired will end up being hired by some online service, or something like that.

Besides, other than the WSJ and a few others, no one reads business news in the paper any more. It's not deep, broad or timely enough. It never really was but since it was the only option it didn't matter.

LT36

lol, seoul cane your suite mate and the rest of his bros got destoyed that night . i really felt bad those kids. they got beat down. dude i was way toooooo pretty back then too fight. and that the only thing that came close to my face that night was his girls lips kissing me goodnight that night. lmao. so no i never got knocked out sorry. and its ashame hes probably been tellin that same lie for ever. when he'd see me on tv, to try to impress someone. mmm mmm no good. i left school in 92

CanesgirlNC

Cav - U R Welcome! I didn't win the Heisman here for nothing! Tebow got nothing on me and that, my friends, is Canes swagger! ;-D

CanesgirlNC

For U Cav - some Bryce Brown to the tune of James Brown

LT36,

Are we going to be able to get you to stop by some of the pre game tail gates at TNP?

alf

LT since you can no longer park at the gas station across from the bowl bar. Where is the new LT parking spot?

miamimike01

LT,

favorite or most memorable Marino moment.

CanesgirlNC

A little Lamar Thomas (5 wides, no receivers.....)

Just was wondering who the fastest guy on the team was when LT was their. Im sure you guys raced for bragging rights, but was anyone a little faster then the reat of the pack. I always thought #5 had most quick on the field those days.

bg1906

That would be Kevin Williams, he was fast.

Jake

just my opinion...but Bryce Brown should transfer to Killian H.S. for next yr.

Calvin

Ok some of the CANESPACE brethren have spoken, i'mma go ahead and let that shat go(the teague/lt play) cause after reading the interviews, i know that play had to be harder for lt to live with than the shat i felt and no how we played in Miami.

On a different note, alot of yall know how i feel about getting to many recruits from out of state, but i will say this much, i can't vouch for authur brown, but i know this guy from kansas, he's an older guy around 70, retired lawyer type who now, all he does is come u with sports trivia's and sometimes life trivia's. Anyway, he was messing around with me saying, looks like Miami is going to turn it around, they got the #1 player from kansas, and shat like that.

But he gave me a trivia question, hell i'm going to give it to yall to than. NAME 3 RUNNINGBACKS FROM THE NFL, CONSIDERED GREAT, 2 WERE GREAT FOR SURE, 1 WAS VERY GOOD, WHO WERE FROM OR PLAYED IN KANSAS.

Jake

some people get real joy out of immaturity. 86 just delete and don't respond. I know for me, and probally most blogger, we don't even get past the 5th word when reading those ridiculous post.

LT36-who is the best WR at the U right now in your opinion?

Calvin

By the way, the point being, if history holds true to form, bryce brown just might live up to what is expected of him.
