U gots to pay attention!

Ocean State Cane

i agree with three out of those two facts


Parity is upon us until we return to kicking as$.

Coker was the right man for the job at that time. He wasn't the right man to sustain the program.

Willie Williams really only had one f up since his high school days. Two if you count transfering from The U.

I wish Coker the best of luck at UTSA. I wish Cook/Romeo/Dixon/Johnson/Armour/ and especially Youngblood and all the rest, the best of luck in their football careers and lives in general.

Could easily see Cook returning to The U as a graduate asistant.

The Truth

"...and for possibly the first time in his life, telling the truth"


Cheap...but then again, so was the Charlie Brown refrence.

That's ok...I can take it LOL


Ray Ray & Da Truth (Lamar Miller)

Everybody loves Ray Ray but Da Truth shall set us free...from Coker!

"The Truth Will Set U Free"

OcalaCane...where U at?


And what is FSU's excuse?? Same guy who was there when they were right behind us in the power rankings. This game this year will show who's closer to rising again.

So U wanna go see it IN PERSON while wearing Canespace gear deep into hostile enemy territory?

Truth...fair play is fair game?



Happy Birthday the other day.

Got done watching the 2008 highlights tape and I didn't get as big a kick out of the wooo wooo scene. It was great to see the players interacting with Shannon though. I thought one of Shannons faults might be being too strict and causing the players to play tight. I don't think that is the case anymore.

In the begining of the tape I noticed highlights from Moncur and Colin McCarthy. It will be good to have them back this year. It is a real shame we didn't have our co-ordinators last year so we can hit this early, brutal schedule at full speed.

Like Cav said once,(paraphrasing here) 'Our growth won't be gradual, incremental, baby steps. It will be exponential with the talent we are aquiring.'

The O line needs to jell. The young, talented players need to become veteran, talented players. It's like the scene in Independence Day when the aliens are gradually getting their warships into place. Almost there.
We will be back next year, but 2010 is when we'll dominate.

The Truth

Whatever you say Charlie...just don't let Lucy rip that ball away. Wouldn't want you cracking that noggin missing another kick ;-)

It was hilarious to me because everyone see's Randy as so up tight and not the have fun type and think the players are fearful of him. That seemed like a group that was very comfortable with their head guy. Also to me it was just so funny how he said it...Ahhhhhhhh, I feel good today (rolling his shoulders) and the players started woooing and laughing and smiling. I just like it. Maybe I hyped it toooo much and then when you see it, its not as big as I made it sound. HAHAHAHA!

"The days of "parity" are clearly upon us. And, there's no turning back now

Fortunately the days of parody are behind us




I almost told you a couple of days ago not to "ruin" any other parts of it for me, lol.
It was very good to see the dynamic that Randy has with the team.

The Truth

The Heat are getting raped by the refs... without the lube.

Anything to keep a Cleveland/LA finals is what it looks like. What better way to assure Lebron advancing then to extend this series while they rest.

You know I'm only playng 86...I got your back in more ways than you know. That's The Truth.

The Truth

I think her shirt was too small and she has great "eyes"

Very hot!!

Who is she?

The Truth

I don't know about parody in D1 but it's plain to see that now more than ever everyone has good players on the roster.

Obviously, Miami did not. The NFL will draft you if you're a player...

What does it say that a Miami team sent 1...ONE kid into the show as a drafted player?

So all you arguers go on and on about coaches and S&C and blah blah blah....Miami was a waistland under Clappy Von Clapenstein and this year more than ever proved it. These kids where the heart of his recruiting style.


Charlie Brown

Truth...what about the Glenn Cook comment in the blog article above. I thought U (or Solar) might appreciate that?

Listen, after what just ate here in this bar that damn dish Cook is serving up sounds fricken perfect to me LOL

I was just about to hit the 94 west out of here but that was a hell of comeback. I'm stayin...

The food sucks but the beer is COLD!!

Good game now.

He looks normal now...what was it?

Chinese Punisher aka Cavaleer

Truth, do you think next year's crop of seniors brings a faint shine to the Clappy Era?? C-Mac, Sharpton and Epps might do well, same with Sam and Hill, maybe even Phillips if he can hold off the freshmen, lol.

The Freshmen are coming! The Freshmen are coming!

The Truth

"he also liked Purdues academic programs...""


(deep breath)


Whoooooo...that just made my day!!!


USF - until he enrols my $$$ is on USF

Did Jermain O'Neil forget how to rebound? WTF is wrong with him?


James jones playing good though! Ok back to finals.

The Truth

Epps - if he's all healed up and it looks like he is - will draft well.

CMac and Sharpton are draftable but they need to show something this year...

Sharpton needs to show ability to diagnose the play faster and he needs to get back in coverage when he's asked to.

Cmac needs to stay healthy and tackle well in space...he has other issues but those will keep him down in the draft.

The Heat are back to sucking a*s again and I've got a decent drive ahead so I might be out...they have 6 minutes to keep me interested.

The Truth

#6 is going to have to have an AMAZING year to get drafted.


What a basket by O'neil!


Trivia question:

How long does it take a major league team to go from 10 games over 500 to 500 on the nose?


per the Marlins, apparently 10 games. Only 3 more to go to make this a reality. Yuch.

Now we'll see what the Heat still has left in them.

Re: Coker's game day coaching:

I still think the offensive calls vs. OSU in the championship game were atrocious. UM clearly had more talent and obviously nearly won. If they had more creative offensive playcalling that game, the flag wouldn't have mattered. OSU's D plan was to stack up McGahee and make Dorsey beat them. Dorsey was definitely not on target that night, so what did we do about it? How many times did we try something else to take the pressure off of simple McGahee strength runs? How about an end around, an option play, someone else running the ball, some easier passes.....UM only stayed close in the game due to superior talent, as they clearly had an inferior game plan that day.

Only my opinion.

Truth what do U know? I heard from some non-confirmed sources that Marve had GRADE issues? Rumors, ONLY RUMORS, were he had GPA below 2.0 during his last semester???

The Truth

I only really watch playoff basketball...so forgive me if this a known thing:

Is Joe Johnson a helluva player or what?

The Truth

That boy has GF "issues" along with "daddysupmyass issues"

But his grades are a problem cuz he doesn't really think he should have to be there. The "rumors" are almost ALL true and that's unfortunate for him because his father, instead of pointing fingers, really should try to get his sons balls back from his woman of the moment and sit his dumb a*s down with a tutor.

After he's done with those 2 things he needs to put his foot so far up his a*s that Bobby Drama could tie daddies shoe through his teeth.

Teach that dumb a*s some responsibility and respect.

But daddy doesn't get it.

The Truth

I hate the XX guy... Dumbest adds on TV.


Truth you got that right! I think he may need a trip to bootcamp and right off to Iraq. Teach his behind some real life lessons, I have no patience for boys like this and even less for Fathers who allow it.
How many young men would have given anything to be the starting QB at UM, let alone a full ride scholarship, psst... ok I am finished!

The Truth

Dead on CC

Ok ladies and Gents...this game is over for me. I got 45 minutes on the hwy to home so I'm out!


yea I got a chuckle out of the Cook nickname, you are the next coming of Chris Berman

Truth LMAO at the foot up the azz crack!!

I have a friend from Jersey that slays me when he says hes gonna put his foot so far up your azz you'll sneeze shoelaces.



Anyone ever seen an NBA playoff victory by as much as Denver is reeling off right now vs. New Orleans? Wow. N.O. has just made a pair of free throws to narrow the gap to 56 with under 4 min. left.


Sean Spence hi lite reel from his freshman year





My picks for LOF are:

Bosher and McCarthy


From The Palm Beach Post:

Lots of people are probably surprised that Spencer Adkins was drafted at all - much less in the sixth round by the Atlanta Falcons - but the Hurricanes’ former back-up middle linebacker isn’t among them.

Adkins, watching from his mother’s home in Naples, said he was expecting something to happen when the Falcons’ selection - the 176th overall - came up in the draft. Most draft analysts viewed Adkins as a premium free agent, and certainly no better than a seventh round pick.

“I had a good feeling I was going to be picked,” said Adkins, who visited with the Falcons’ coaching staff in Atlanta recently. “I wasn’t listening to all the outside things. Then it happened.”

Adkins was the only UM player taken over seven rounds, marking the fewest Hurricanes selected in one draft since 1980. Cornerback Bruce Johnson, who draftniks viewed as the most draftable UM player, was not picked.

Adkins probably wouldn’t have been drafted either if not for an eye-catching performance at UM’s Pro Day in February. Among other things, Adkins ran 40 yards in 4.43 seconds, broad jumped 10-2, vertical jumped 36 1/2 inches and bench pressed 225 pounds a total of 30 times.

“It obviously boosted me up,” Adkins said of Pro Day. “But from what the Atlanta coaches told me, they always liked what they saw before that. That just added flame to the fire.”

Maybe so, but Adkins didn’t have a lot of shining moments as a collegian to impress the NFL. He made five starts as a junior, but those games included forgettable losses to Oklahoma, Virginia and Georgia Tech. Last season, Adkins played exclusively in a reserve role and registered four of his career five sacks while being used as an inside blitzer on passing situations.

Adkins is physically impressive. Although he stands only 5-11, every ounce of his 238 pounds is solid steel. But those physical attributes didn’t amount to great production during his UM career.

”I didn’t achieve what I expected,” Adkins said Sunday. “I could have done a lot more. But that’s all in the past and I’m looking forward right now.”


My picks are:
Epps and Spence!!
I rewatched all the Canes losses this past season... We had a damn good football team. We went toe to toe with the National Champs, If Kayne made that catch we win the UNC game.. If we stopped FSU from getting that damn first down, or if we stayed healthy and had some veterans step up(goodbye Cokers bitches).. A common theme is that Marve and Harris both had to improvise on every play because Nix was terrible. I can not wait for the whipple attack. Defense will be better with more talent and experience!! We get through the first four games and we are going to have one hell of a season!! GO CANES!!
