Holton has supposedly qualified with a 2.6 GPA.

Cavaleer

Super.....WHEEEEEW! lol

Two more to go right? B. Jones and B. Wash

Cavaleer

DJ, I'd say LT, Copeland and Williams WERE on the Wayne, Moss, Johnson level because they were all there at the same time. I'd say that '91 team had the best group of WRs we've had for one year. They were literally B-52 bombers.

In two years we'll be at least that good, AT LEAST.

LT, "Just get us to the stadium and we'll take care of the rest."

That is so True U baby, True U. Music to my ears. lol

orange 'n green in the vein

Chris Campbell (RIP) was the third LB in '01.

Isn't Kenny Boynton a big recruit that Haith has landed recently?

CoCane

OGV,

Nope. Da "U" ain't even make Boynton's final 5 list of schools. I think it's Texas, Memphis, Florida, Duke & UConn. That's the player I'm disappointed about. I had a feelin' Haith would land him. It's not over until he signs with someone else but most likely it won't be da "U".

I do believe if Haith & them live up to the preseason hype & at least make it to the sweet 16. The exposure will help Haith land a top 10 class in 2010. Can anyone say BRANDON KNIGHT. He's actually better than Boynton. Some think he'll be better than Derrick Rose. He's strait out da 954. LAUDERDALE!!!

AvaCane96

isn't Boynton a Duke/Miami battle?

Soldo

Hey cocane lay off those Newports bro, them things will tear your lungs up. But seriously i'm glad your ok now. You gotta be around and healthy to take care of your little one.

Damn I can't wait until August when practice starts.

"I don't really know what to say," North Carolina coach Mike Fox said. "I know Chad Flack is the clutchest player I'll ever be fortunate enough to coach. He's proven it time and time again."

Is cluchest even a word? I don't think so.... But UNC is one win away from making the finals against UGA. If it comes to that, I would rather UNC win to show ACC's dominance over SEC...

Smith said he qualified

CoCane

AC96,

Neither scout, rivals or espn has Boynton even considering da "U". I hope they're hating & wrong because of it. Only time will tell. I live in Broward & none of my homies in Pompano are saying shyt 'bout Boynton & da "U" in the same sentence. There's usually at least a rumor & I ain't heard shyt...

I agree. Go ACC!

Bad news on the football recruiting tip. Everybody I know who knows Brandon McGee out of Plantation says he's a BIG semiho fan... DAM!

It was the same thing with Major Wright. He had always been a big Gayturd fan... FUKK!

SOUP

COKE...did you read all the basketball stuff I posted above?

Are you going on the Canespace charter flight to St. Thomas for the Paradise Jam?

CoCane

Yeah. I peeped it. My crystal ball ain't workin' right now.

Stay tuned...

CoCane

Is the hoops team complete 08-09 schedule out yet???

CoCane

Soldo,

How do you know if I smoke death sticks?

4-Real

Brandon Mcgee is a Fsu & Deon Sanders fan but says that won't be a factor in his decision. He wants to go where he can get immediate playing time, which is why he is high on the Canes. Our db depth chart should work in our favor with several big-time db's.

SuperCooper

Charlie Jones has left Miami for Memphis.

Calvin

I've been wondering what happened to harland gunn, maybe he'll be a late bloomer on the line or something, if nothing else, i like the fact that he seems to be working hard and just trying to get bet better and push whoever is in front of him out the way, depth chart wise and defenders. Something i've noticed, if you want 40 times that seem a lil more acccurate, seems like scout.com is a lil more realistic. Can someone post the george mira interview from scout.

By the way, quiet as kept, reggie youngblood seems to have benefitted a whole lot having jeff stoutland on board. Although he has never been dominant, if he cuts down on being dominated, he'll be a real steady o-lineman and might just mess around and end up being a decent draft pick(2nd or 3rd round).

The one thing i do like is the stoutland/nix combination, reason being is, nix basically is a run the ball down your throat type oc, and stoutland focusing in on being a dominant o-line from an aggressive perspective and not from a finesse standpoint with the chp blocks, he teaches o-lineman how to attack, that's how his o-line dominated us at syracuse that year when they hung 61 on us, most of us were trying to figure out what the hell happened, the answer is clear now, stoutland happened.

Found this looking for something else, from the 14 to 20 second mark, for some reason that shat he said was funny as hell, but it just goes to show you how far off the mentality we have and the mentalities alot of other people have are.

SuperCooper

Gunn was only a freshman last year, he has plenty of time.

Calvin

Did gunn redshirt already?

reggaebob

not only was gunn a freshman, but orlando franklin was good enough to ensure just enough depth at the 0-line, so the coaches didnt find it necessary to have harland play right away. The coaches do think hes something special though, hurtt said once before that his guys hate going up against him. He has a good o-line build and has the smarts to be a special player in the future (he is in engineering, after all)

4-Real

It's funny how these coaches are always bragging about how guys like Gunn, D. Berry, Richard Gordon and Ojomo are tearing it up in practice but they have yet to see the field. Can someone please xplain?

solarcane

Here is a sneak peek at the "Gator Hater" and "Not Today, Tebow" stickers.

Here are your explanations... Harland Gunn was rexshirted last year as a freshman, so Super is right, and Calvin there's your answer. This means he has 4 more years to play. I believe he is second on the depth chart behind Figs (who supposedly tore it up during the spring), which means he will get PT, like Orlando Franklin did last year.

Ojomo was also a redshirt freshman last year, so while he and Gunn both tore it up in practice, neither got to see the field because they weren't allowed to. Ojomo will get PT this year, for no other reason than he HAS to, with Harris out and Bailey hurt. Also, Shannon and Young both know that its best to keep a d-line rotation to keep your players fresh, so he will be rotating in behind Bailey after he comes back

Gordon DID get PT last year, and he got a lot during the spring as well. Thing is, Nix isn't know for using his TE's a whole lot... Though he may more next year, we'll see

D. Berry got PT on special teams, and tore it up there. He was at a log-jammed position at safety last year (and was a freshman), and also had to practice at corner. Now he's at RB where there appears to be a log-jam.. But Shannon promised Damien PT if he moved to RB, and Shannon has done nothing to prove he isn't a man of his word. Also, Berry is now the biggest back in the backfield, so think goal-line situations and such

HAHAHA Solar, I love 'em. Got lots of picture ideas and people to take them with. Any special requests?

Loco

soup, you've got mail

solarcane

loco just enjoy 'em!
I'll send down a couple other things as the game looms closer.

Solar...that's some funny KaKa!

Loco..great post above.

Working on LT Part II for tonight at 8PM.

Working on new banner with countdown feature provided by ALF.

You shouldn't play a frosh unless they're hands down better than the vets. If they're talented but not dominating the vets, groom'em. By the time they step on the field they'll tear shyt up immediately. I think Gunn, Ojomo, Berry & Bailey fit that mold. They'll kill shyt when it's thier turn...

CoCane

Is Kylan Robinson still a LB or have they moved him to his best position at FB.

reggaebob

solar i LOVE the stickers! that is phenomenal work, cant wait to post them up!

Dequan Jones is a big time Haith recruit then, not Boyton. (Though keeping him in the area would be one of those watershed recruiting battle victories that you can point to)

From www.hurricanesports.com:

Men's Basketball to Face Ohio State in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

April 15, 2008

CORAL GABLES, FLA. - The University of Miami men's basketball team will play host to Ohio State in the 2008 ACC/Big Ten Challenge on Tues., Dec. 2, at the BankUnited Center. Time and ESPN network coverage is to be determined.

It marks the third time that Miami will be participating in the Challenge, after appearances in 2005 and 2006, while it will be the seventh-straight appearance by Ohio State. The Hurricanes lead the all-time series versus the Buckeyes, 2-1, and have won two straight - including a 75-62 victory in the second round of the 2000 NCAA Tournament.

"It's exciting to be a part of this event," said Miami head coach Frank Haith, who just wrapped up his winningest season at the helm. "The teams in these two conferences play at such a high level, which makes for fun - yet intense - match ups. We look forward to the challenge and will work to represent both the University of Miami and the Atlantic Coast Conference well."

The Hurricanes come off one of the most successful seasons in program history, finishing 23-11 and among the top-five in the ACC. They will return four starters and their top-five scorers from their 2007-08 squad that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, including First Team All-ACC selection Jack McClinton, who averaged a team-high 17.7 points per game, while converting an ACC-best (third in the NCAA) 91.9 percent from the line and 42.7 percent from long range.

Posted by: CoCane | June 22, 2008 at 01:55 PM

Latest I heard was he moved back to FB/RB.

dj moonbat@gmail.com

Cav sez: "DJ, I'd say LT, Copeland and Williams WERE on the Wayne, Moss, Johnson level because they were all there at the same time."

Huh? Andre Johnson WAS there at the same time as Wayne and Moss. Since they didn't run 3-wide sets as often as in '91, he wasn't featured, but he was there.

In 2000, the OC had this "dilemma": Do I sit Shockey, Davenport, or Andre Johnson for a given play?

reggaebob,
Glad you like them, they are going out Monday should be down there in a few days.

coCane,

"dawg" fans when they saw the not today sign

I think it was ITU that posted Kylan was moved back to RB/FB.

alf

soup. I enlarged the banner. Still got a fix it up a bit. Check it out

Everyone check out the new banner on the home page of canespace.com

SOUP

He is now listed as a RB on the official UM web site:

36 Robinson, Kylan Running Back 6-1/232 SO Anchorage, Alaska/Tampa Chamberlain

SOUP

alf....nice! Well U all wanted a countdown, U got your stinking countdown!

Now one for the blog too...

CanezNC

Rivals Pre-Season has Canes at #41 http://collegefootball.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=819000 (ND is at #40, BC is #44, UNC at #47). Canes finished #70 in Rivals at end of season...

CanezNC

Make that #64 as Canes final season postion on Rivals...for what it's worth (not much)

solarcane

Dang we were preseason 37 last year.
then we go 5-7. 41st is actually pretty generous in those terms.
peace

solarcane


The only thing that will gain any respect is the win column.

New recruits, new stadium, new coaches, mean nothing without visible immediate progress.

just win baby

peace

SOUP

Solar...U got that right!

All the experts say the Canes are going 9-3 in 2008, do U agree? LOL

solarcane

8-4 soup
and that ain't bad at all
