Thanks buddy. Stuff like that is why I feel I'm a front runner for the CSROH in 2010...

Kenny is working out for the UFL
I wish Whipple would hire him as an ast qb coach, 6 years from now he could be a great OC

Solar IMO it would be crazy not to make him the preseason pick for MVP of this team.

That being said I picked Robinson.

solarcane

Spence is on that list quite a few times is he the lead vote getter projected legend?

Calvin
here is the guy from Georgia you want in a Canes uniform.
this kid can throw deep, find the open guy and also outrun most everybody on the field for the first twentyfive yards.
he ends up at Virginia Tech you will get to see plenty of him.

He comes here he will be pushing hard to start when jacory leaves

He remiinds me of Steve Walsh with his delivery.

Well this darius robinson kids film doesn't impress me, he does have great straight line speed, and defense would have to be where he plays, he has no real moves in the open field/hips are not that fluid, ut he'll add more speed to the team/secondary if he comes in, plays kind of physical, hell look for yourself. I like how his clips have him running track 1st though, hmmmm, maybe that's where he belongs, and just remember this after watching his clips, lamar the truth miller is faster.

New blog at Midnight...

Ronnie Lott had the tip of his finger cut off, not the whole thing according to legend, but everyone knows how crazy hockey players are ....

"Lidstrom missed the final two games of the Western Conference finals because he was speared in the testicle by the Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Sharp(notes) in Game 3 and had to undergo surgery. But he returned for the opening game of the Stanley Cup final."

One of his grapes was squashed, he got some fixin' done on it, and came back to play. Insane testicular fortitude right there.


I'M HAPPY WE HAVE BASEBALL TO CARRY US.

wylie just because you look like marley doesnt mean u play like him.get out and put in some work,go ahead and play for some hole in wall program i guess u dont have what it takes

Sup Spacers....just got back from a week in Tenn, and I will let you know I found ONE cane fane..die hard to. We will be moving in the next 2 months...yes right before football season. Does anyone know how much the college football ticket or whatever channel it is to watch all the college games costs, or any place close to Chattanoga that shows the Canes games?

Also..86...remember that article I wrote about a year ago (July 08) about the Miami Bias? That same dam security guard at the airport made a comment about my canes jersey lol. My son was taking off his belt before going through the metal detector so the lady goes.."son, you dont have to take off your belt, you look innocent enough"...so the old guard goes "well...he is in the company of a miami fan" lol...it was funny..good hearted humor.

SlingBlade

BG,

U out there? When you posting your NCAA 10 review? I saw the roster change blog, but was wondering if you were going to review it. Did you download the new maps for CoD 5? They are pretty cool. Sorry you missed playing with us the other night. Maybe next time. Hope you had fun with your nephew. Remember to let him win sometimes!

GO CANES!!!

Posted by: 360Cane | June 15, 2009 at 01:19 PM

What up 360.

Yeah I will review the game. I'll have it the Thursday, Friday, or Saturday before the Tuesday release. I'll play it that weekend and have my review done Tuesday or Wednesday. Yeah I got the new COD5 maps. I like them.

solarcane

Jonathan Harris was another really good #3.

Remember those third downs when he would cut over the middle with that long white towel flowing along beside him??

he was a player too, took some hard licks to get yardage
peace

A couple weeks ago Randy was quoted in an article saying that Wylie was NOT leaving. FWIW

j.w.

I'm no insider, but It sounds like P.T. issue, Sebastian. He's talking about transferring to a 1AA school where he can probably play soon. If true, hope it works out for him.

SebastianDaIbis

I saw the article Shandel put up today about Joe Wylie possibly leaving...Good work lately by the way...He`s listed at 6'1 195 decent size if true...Is P.T. the reason or is there more to it??We need depth back there so i`m not quite getting whats up with this possible move..

86 - thanks again for the hook up to the Whitney Bank Club .. and the Rays got the sweep at that game - good stuff all around

Good to meet Ocala and his wife


Speaking of baseball players going into the draft, check this kid out, supposedly tabbed the next great thing ...

The kid's dad has a plan to have him forgo the final two years of his high school, get his GED instead and go to a JUCO so he can get drafted by next year ...

I hope none of the recruits I talked to today read this blog but I am to excited not to share with you. Corey Lemonier thanked me for telling him straight up how amazing Miami is. I described what I thought of Miami to Darius Robinson and he agreed one hundred percent. Marcus Lattimore told me that he seriously appricated the advice I gave him. I wish I could be professional and not say anything but I feel like a little school boy inside. Anyway If we get them to go to Miami I get a Canespace shirt. lol GO CANES!!

LOL Solar

I hear you...and let's not forget Glen Cook wore that #. Watching that might cloud your memory of ANY decent player that wore it in the past

ONE YEAR AGO...

June 17, 2008

So here we all are, one year after Canespace was launched on June 17, 2007. My, how time flies when you are blogging Hurricane sports 24/7!

After over 85,000 comments and over 1.2 million page views, Canespace continues to impact the blogging world with its committment, content and connections. With over ten regular contributors located across the Country writing feature articles for "The Space", the diversity and dynamics that make Canespace unique in the blogging world continue to drive the blog forward into the big time blogoshpere.

Initially, they said it couldn't be done. No way could an under-funded, fan-based, non-media affiliated site spring to the forefront of Hurricane athletic blogs. They were wrong! Not only has Canespace blogged into the big leagues with big media and big money players like the Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel, but we have more than held our own with them all the way through. Canespace has made the big time.

And we could NOT have achieved our goals without the friends we made along the way. Special thanks go out to Manny Navarro from the Miami Herald who was the first to take a risk and support our grass roots, fan based efforts. Canespace introduced the concept of LIVE chats and Manny rocked the blog with his witty and sincere responses to bloggers' questions in real time for the first time here on The Space.

Then came Rudy Rodriguez-Chomat and Christopher Stock from InsidetheU.com who also brought you the news you could use despite some controversy along the way. Chris introduced the "Monday Lunch With Chris" feature and turned blue Monday's into orange and green with his smart and insightful comments.

We shared ideas and dinner with Shandel Richardson from the Sun-Sentinel at The Titanic and then took over The Light where we established "Canespace Corner". We got our first sponsorship (advertisement) from CBS4 Sports. Lastly, Brian Foley from The College Baseball Blog has joined the list of respected media types who have graced The Space.

Beyond that what really drove the blog was the original Spacers and those who came along later in our development that were true Canes fans. Smart, knowledgeable and funny. There are too many names to name. But they were young and old, men and women, students and sports fans, international fans and military personnel. The world is simply covered by Canes fans far and wide. When you look at the FeedJit map early in the morning and see over 15 to 20 COUNTRIES logged in you know The Space is a world wide rage.

Our first interview was with "Legend of the Fall" and son of a legend Rohan Marley. Rohan, son of Music legend Bob Marley and a legend in his own right as a Hurricane warrior and hero, was straight out jamming when he talked to us. He said that on Greentree practice field, the defense felt like "Lions on the Serengeti", masters of their domain. The #2 never looked so large as when Rohan would run completely across the field at full speed and slam the ball carrier into the turf. Small in stature, but large in heart and character, he was a true Hurricane legend.

The next interview that we will post will be with another Hurricane legend, Lamar Thomas #36. Lamar shared some intimate details and real stories of what it was like to be a Hurricane back in the day. He countered Rohan's "Lions on the Serengeti" comment with one of his own. Another Canespace classic coming to blog near you soon!

Canespace is just scratching the surface of what we have planned. Media credentials are still a few steps away but UM Associate AD Jim Frevola, Patricia Brodeur from the UM Alumni Association and Lindsay Radeer from the Hurricane Club have all agreed to work with Canespace this coming football season.

It has been a great year. And the next one can only get better at Canespace. Our goal is for Canespace will be the #1 blog in the entire Hurricane sports world.

By The Fans, For The Fans. Go Canes, Go Canespace!!!

solarcane

j.w yea

I liked Geathers, I liked Jammi German too, I thought he should have done better over all also.

I think Whipple might be the guy that uses the players natural strengths as weapons as apposed to trying to adapt plays to guys on the field.

I think we go with 3 TEs for 2010.

Next time you have a hang over go get a milk shake or slurpy. Then pound that drink as quick as you can. You'll get the "brain freeze" but after that, no more hang over. (doesn't always work perfectly but after you get thru the brain freeze everything else you feel is like icing on the cake)

j.w.

Geathers frustrated me. A ton of potential but just couldn't seize a position and when we needed him most (Fiesta Bowl) they didn't call on him. Whether that was on the coaching staff or on him is something I still think about.

Happy Anniversary.

TWO YEARS AGO...

June 16, 2007

Welcome To The New Blog Canes Fans!

So here we go! Our own new and improved, bigger, better blog "For Cane Fans, By Canes Fans!" On behalf of all of the Page Owners at www.canespace.com we'd like to welcome you to OUR blog.

This blog will be managed and moderated by real Canes fans, not the media, or the University or anyone else for that matter. This blog is about a place for all Canes sports talk, all the time. Here it's all about the U, the teams, the players, the coaches and the fans. If you are a true Canes fan and bleed orange and green, then this blog if for U!

We encourage you to visit our website weekly to read new content from Page Owners like Solar, Lyquid, Esteban, Calvin, OGV, Aqua and a Guest page writer each week. We will be covering the Canes from a true fans perspective with no limitations to our opinions (just ask Calvin!) or yours.

The site also has a bit of Canes history (Games and Photos pages) and a look at Canes who you can now watch playing on Sunday (NFLU page).

We will have weekly features here on the blog and daily moderators who will help manage content and conversations to keep the topics current, lively and moving along.

We will highlight players and coaches and upcoming games and anything else that we can think of that may be relevant to bringing U "the news U can use."

So join us as we set out to explore and conquer the Cane universe and show the world we are Baaaack!

It makes St. Patricks day green wearing a breeeeeeze LOL

The Truth

I got my U many moons ago.

360Cane

Any knowledge on the numbers the freshmen coming in this summer or fall? Is Ray Ray going to be 26? Speaking of 26, we just got an 8 week old english lab, and named him Taylor!

We have a small bet for those of you interested. The bet is, when we beat OU, we all go out to the tattoo parlor for a U logo tattoo!

I'm going to sport mine on the outside of my right calf. Mrs. 360 is going to get hers on the back of her neck (ouch!).

oooo t-ben is gonna lead in yards i didnt think you had him on there

I sit quietly laughing to myself as I watch College Football Live on ESPN.......

Little does the world know what we really have on this team, the scary thing is I don't think we do either.......

That's the way I saw it as well Truth. Ga. tech will get their yards, but I still think we beat them on the scoreboard.

Superman not so much!!

Posted by: canechic | June 14, 2009 at 11:00 PM

>>>>>

Yeah, Superman is great when he's in the air, it's when he's on the ground that you can stop him. His game is rather limited, probably because no one ever forced him to develop it because he's so talented in other ways. Now, though, he's going to have to work on real technique and moves, not just natural gifts. Hopefully that's what he'll do. If he does, he'll be unstoppable but it will take a few years.

The NBA hasn't had a talented, versatile, skilled big man since Hakeem, Robinson, Ewing and probably someone else I'm forgetting.

The Truth

I say they BETTER be 2-2 after the 1st 4.

If not - all the people in CG saying things about Randy behind his back won't be just saying it behind his back anymore.

Good afternoon Spacers! If you or anyone you know was laid off (like I was), is financially strapped, or simply wants to earn some extra money, please let me know. I would like to help if I can. You or someone you may know can email me at benguest76@gmail.com.

GO CANES!!!

CVS, the first two and following seven are definitely within reach but #3 requires a big, big swig of spiked Kool-Aid. haha

WHOOSH, WHOOSH!

Cat 5 Cane

Is it me or is Randy really a magnet... Kids and parents alike, love to talk to him. His demeanor is quiet and soft spoken but his words ring out truth and have direct consequences if you disobey him. Going back 2 years ago he told the world, if you want to play for the U, you can, but you'll have to earn it. To a young man fresh out of high school it is a "In-your-face" challenge from a black head coach (1 of 6 in the league) and he's not mixing words, with maybes and ifs. To the young stud, it must be refreshing to hear the truth... Now, in 2009, we are hearing it allot from many coaches, but it was Randy who drew first blood and caught the attention of the many who have since signed up to be a part of the U Dynasty of DOMINANCE


The U...

We got some Canes over here!!!

From www.hurricanesports.com:

University of Miami junior Kyle Bellamy earned his third first team All-America honor of the postseason as Baseball America recognized the closer as the team's relief pitcher on its 16-man first team.

Bellamy, who recently earned first-team All-America honors by both the NCBWA and Rivals.com, is among the national leaders with 16 saves this season. In 46 1/3 innings pitched, the Davie, Fla. native allowed just five earned runs while striking out 63 and holding his opponents to a .147 batting average against him.

In a team-high 30 appearances, Bellamy (3-1, 0.97 ERA) allowed just two extra-base hits and finished a perfect 16-for-16 in save opportunities. His 16 saves are tied for fifth in school history for saves in a single season, with 12 of his 16 saves coming from more than an inning of work.

In addition to his three first team All-America honors thus far, Bellamy has been named one of five finalists for the prestigious NCBWA Stopper of the Year award as well as a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award, the Dick Howser Trophy and the College Baseball Foundation National Pitcher of the Year Awards. He was also named as the closer on the 2009 All-ACC First Team.

On Wednesday, Bellamy was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft by the Chicago White Sox.

.Top 5... College Football's 5 Greatest First-Year Players of the Past 50 Year.

By Baby Tate...Bleacher Report.

A common occurrence among fans and pundits throughout the country is a sincere debate concerning the greatest college football players in history.

In local taverns, at a family get together, shuckin' and jivin' sessions on the street, or wherever a difference of opinion can be suggested, someone has an idea of just who should be on that list.

But suppose we qualify such an argumentative list by imposing three strict rules.

1– Let us modify the search to include only the past 50 years.

2- Wrap that around a discussion of only the most outstanding players performing in their first year, either as Freshmen or Sophomores prior to Frosh eligibility in 1972, Junior College transfers in their first year of major college ball, or Redshirt Freshmen.

3- Then, most importantly, add a real kicker to the conversation—let us stipulate that the first year player in question has to be an important member of a National Championship team in his first year.


.........................................


5. Bernie Kosar, Quarterback: Miami
Arguably the most underrated offensive player of the past half century. This is a man that knew how to get it done and did it.

As a 6'5" redshirt freshman in 1983, he led the Hurricanes to the national championship—and not just over any old opponent in any old game.

The Hurricanes defeated a Nebraska squad described at the time as the greatest team in football history. The Cornhuskers scored 624 points and gave up only 186 in winning their first 12 games of the season.

The 31-30 classic won by Miami has been considered "the greatest game ever played."

A toast to the cool and efficient Bernie Kosar.

...........................................

4. Tommy Nobis, Linebacker: Texas

Arguably the most underrated defensive player of the past half century. When offenses stared into the eyes of this legendary player, they knew their time was up.

During his first year of varsity ball in 1963, Nobis led the Longhorns to an undefeated national championship, destroying Heisman Trophy winner Roger Staubach and No. 2-ranked Navy in the Cotton Bowl, 28-6.

It has been mentioned in some corners that Tommy Nobis is the greatest defensive player who has ever played football.


...........................................
3. Ernie Davis, Running Back: Syracuse

The cards of fate were stacked against this great gentleman.

Known as "The Elmira Express," Davis burst upon the scene by leading Syracuse to the national championship in 1959 by hammering Texas in the Cotton Bowl, 23-14.

Two years later he won the Heisman Trophy.

Two years later he lay dead—a victim of leukemia.


..........................................
2. Herschel Walker, Running Back: Georgia At 6-1, 225lbs.

Walker crashed upon the football world of 1980 by leading his Bulldogs to the national championship.

He possessed power and speed, along with that most admired aspect of success—star power.

Despite all of his accomplishments, Walker's most lasting impact may be his breaking of the time-honored tradition of staying all four years in college before opting for the professional game.

More than one observer has quipped that Walker is the man for whom an entire professional football league was created, and he took advantage of his position by leaving Georgia following the 1982 season to play in the new United States Football League with the New Jersey Generals.

.........................................

1. O. J. Simpson, Running Back: Southern California

After scoring 54 touchdowns in two years of Junior College ball in his hometown of San Francisco, the man known as "Orange Juice" transferred to the University of Southern California.

He was like no one the country had ever seen before or since. At 6'2" and 210 pounds, O.J. possessed 9.4 speed in the 100-yard dash and had moves that can't be duplicated by even players of this era.

He immediately took his Trojans to the national championship in 1967 and followed it up a year later by winning the Heisman Trophy.

We are all aware of the tragic turn Simpson's life took, a sad figure that peers out of a jail cell.

However, there was a time when he was the greatest of them all on the football field. It is unfortunate that his personal behavior did not compare to his athletic skill and has caused pain to so many.

.......................................


Wow... Not taking anything away from him... but I don't know if it is fair to include OJ with 2 years of experience under his belt before hitting the bigs... to be rated # 1, he must have been awesome to watch as a Junior.
........................................

As for Herschel Walker... been there and seen that... during his run and it was a mouth dropping experience in watching him chisel his way through run stopping defenses... game, after game, after game... He was train and they knew he was coming but nobody could stop him! From memory, they offered him 15 mil to leave Ga. for the USFL.

College: Won the Heisman Trophy in 1982... consensus All-America from 1980-82... established 11 NCAA records, 16 Southeastern Conference records and 41 University of Georgia records in his three years in Athens...rushed for 5,259 yards in his career, an SEC and Georgia record as well as an NCAA mark for most yards in three seasons...ended his Georgia career with the third most rushing yards in NCAA history...established himself immediately with a freshman season that saw him set NCAA marks for most rushing yards by a freshman (1,616 in 1980), most 200-yard games by a freshman (four), average yards per game by a freshman (146.9), most all-purpose yards by a freshman (1,805) and most rushing touchdowns by a freshman (15)...finished third in Heisman balloting as a freshman...named a first team All-America by seven different organizations and publication...totaled an SEC-record 1,891 yards in his second season as well as a conference mark of 171.9 yards per game...ran for more than 100 yards in 11 games as a sophomore, an NCAA record...set an SEC mark with 120 points and 20 touchdowns in sophomore year...ran for 1,616 yards as a junior, establishing an NCAA mark with three seasons of gaining more than 1,500 yards...also set NCAA records for most carries in three seasons (994) and most all-purpose yards in three seasons (5,749)...also competed for Georgia's track and field team, where he was a two-time All-America selection (outdoor 400-meter relay, indoor 60-yard dash) and a member of the SEC champion 400-meter relay in 1981.

Records held... Mind blowing...

As for our man... BERNIE KOSAR
What do you say about a man who started out the season with a 28/3 loss and then run the table to NC... In perhaps the best National Championship game ever played... Awesome!

Bernie Kosar, Miami's unfreshmanlike freshman quarterback, characterizes the Hurricane offense as "disciplined." He figures it has to be to execute all the gymnastics and high-wire acts that Coach Howard Schnellenberger demands of it. On the other hand, Miami Middle Guard Tony Fitzpatrick, the stubby block of muscle and mouth who's what you might expect to get if you crossed the understander on an Irish tumbling team with a Tazmanian devil, characterizes the Hurricane defense as "loose" and, well, loud. It rags and jaws and talks trash, and pops opposing players with such percussion the Gatorade trembles in the cups along the sidelines. It harasses, it intimidates, it dominates. In other words, says a rival coach who doesn't have to play Miami this year, "It's a joy to watch."

The Hurricanes are the most amazing college football team of 1983, and the amazing Kosar, with his wonderful right arm and his 3.4 GPA—he passes and passes—is as responsible as any individual for that. Kosar keeps outgunning the big guns, as he did in Saturday's shootout with West Virginia's Jeff Hostetler, and Miami's offense keeps rolling ever closer to an Orange Bowl date with Nebraska.

It's the Hurricane defensive unit, however, that's really amazing. Granted the peculiarities of polls, bowl committees and conference tie-ups—not to mention the four hairy weekends left in the season—the Miami defense may be the only one left with a chance to spike No. 1 Nebraska and its prepotent attack. The prerequisites for such an appetizing matchup, of course, are that the Cornhuskers win the Big Eight title and that Miami beat East Carolina and Florida State in its last two games. The Orange Bowl committee has its breath held.

In their mad dash up the rankings, the Hurricanes have won eight consecutive games since opening with a 28-3 loss at Florida. Last week before a howling crowd of 63,881 at the Orange Bowl, Miami brushed aside 11th-ranked West Virginia 20-3 just about as easily as the irrepressible Fitzpatrick says he handles opposing centers: "I flip 'em around like a dishrag." The first 10 times the Mountaineers ran the ball, they netted a grand total of zero yards. Counting six sacks, West Virginia backs wound up with a net two yards on the ground, and Hostetler, who had been averaging 200 yards passing, was held to 166 in 29 attempts. He was benched in the fourth quarter when Coach Don Nehlen decided that "he might get killed out there."

Not to worry too much, Coach. For all the flaring nostrils and airy emissions, Miami's defense is as disciplined as its offense—"like a Rolex watch," says Fitzpatrick. It was as much technique as terror that stopped Hostetler. The Hurricane defense, which ranks second in the nation in fewest yards allowed (241 per game), is tutored by a civilized and quiet man named Tom Olivadotti—Commander O to the troops—who contrives so many deceptive alignments and coverages that beaten rivals frequently can't tell what Miami did, even after seeing the films. Commander O's troops include a few bona fide talents and a bunch of guys who make up for not being great by playing great. Linebacker Jay Brophy, for example, is an All-America candidate who studies films and picks up things. Last week he detected that Hostetler has a tendency to keep both hands on the ball when he's going to drop back to pass, but only one when he's going to hand off. That's the sort of info an active linebacker can make hay with. Brophy had a hand in a game-high 15 tackles.

And, of course, there's Fitzpatrick, who passed up a chance to go to Liberty Baptist in Lynchburg, Va., the only school other than Miami to offer him a scholarship. Until he tore a tendon in his left biceps late in the game, an injury that requires surgery and will knock him out for the year, Fitzpatrick was having the season of a lifetime. Early against the Mountaineers he put Hostetler down with emphasis, and as the two of them got up he says the quarterback asked him,

"What's your first name, Fitzpatrick?"

"Tom."

"I got a feeling I'm gonna see a lot more of you today."

"You can count on it."


After the Mountaineers capped a game-opening 75-yard drive with a short field goal, the Hurricanes retaliated with an icy-cool 81-yard scoring march. In it the remarkably poised Kosar—his concentration is so good that he says he often doesn't realize he has been knocked down on a pass rush until he finds himself getting back up—completed five passes. Four were to Tight End Glenn Dennison, who has hands like tar buckets and sets a school receiving record every time he catches the ball. His last grab on the drive was for 19 yards and the go-ahead-for-good TD.

Miami went up 10-3 in the second quarter on a 36-yard field goal by Jeff Davis and then opened the third quarter with another long drive that led to a Davis kick from 31 yards. The Hurricanes clinched the game with a 90-yard scoring drive that was climaxed by a five-yard pass from Kosar to Running Back Keith Griffin with 13:13 to play. The big number was a 49-yard pass to Wide Receiver Eddie Brown. Kosar reads blitzes and coverages as if they were primers, and against the Mountaineers he completed 19 of 36 throws for 211 yards and had four or five perfect passes dropped.

The Hurricanes have won 23 of 25 games at home under Schnellenberger, who plucked the Miami program out of the ashes five years ago. After Saturday's game, Schnellenberger, who's apparently into analogies these days, told his team, "It's a horse race now, with other horses ahead but struggling and the finish line in sight." He likened the Hurricanes' circumstances to "being two pitches away from victory in the ninth inning." They believe him.

But just in case somebody don't know bout them BALLIN BOYZ, here you go!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpqWnxp7178

Calvin

cav, i'm going to hold my 3 peat prediciton, but we're loading up with enough talent to get it done, but 1st our take 1 at a time, because i've learned that if you say how many championships someone will win be it over 1, the 1st one doesn't get it's just do. The 1 thing that's a great goal to accomplish though is back to back, something we've never done before, but just seeing shannon and company get their 1st one/championship will be one of the greatest stories in the long line of great stories at UM man.

Also, congratulations goes out to kobe bryant, derek fisher and the rest of the lakers, gasol for sure, odom finally found someone who dissappears more than he does in rashad lewis. Like kobe or not, like karl malone before him, you got to respect their games, and a hard worker always earns my respect. I always defended kobe when people would say he's trying to hard to be like jordan, but i would tell people, while i understand what you're trying to say, hell, if you're going to be a basketball player in the generation after jordan, that's the best player to try and model your game after, i had no problem with that, and when you look at it, kobe's the closet thing to jordan their ever was thus far, just not defensively.

For my money though, i'd take a healthy dwayne wade over kobe, and i'm not being biased because wade plays for Miami, but he's another one where the stars aligned up right, i mean seriously, he was destined to be in Miami, i can't remember meeting anybody that i know of with the name wade, but the fact that this player comes to Miami, where the County is named DADE, and after dwayned led the heat to the championship people started calling it wade County, come on, that's destiny.
With wade elevating his defense this year, that's the only reason i'm confident in saying i'd take a healthy dwayne over kobe, i never like dwayned cry baby stuff and his lack of hustle on defense, but now that he knows he has to be that guy to lead his team, you saw him go to the next level this year.

To me, barkley will be the all time best 6"4 player to ever play the game, because he had to do it on the inside, but a focused and healthy wade, you won't find another player better, they keep talking about lebron james being the best or second best player in the league, if dwayne wade was on that cleveland team this year, they would have beaten orlando because unlike lebron who has 2 major flaws in his game, jumpers and clutch free throws, it's not a gimmick that wade has won a championship 1st over james and melo. After the lakers won the championship tonight, the one thing i thought about was how would the heat look now with odom, butler and wade, i was one of the only people i know who didn't want shaq, although it worked out for 1 championship, that championship had more to do with wade and alonzo mourning defense, shaq is lazy.

Meanwhile, back to football, it's a great time to make soldinger a graduate assistant. Also, speaking of a qb recruits, i'm just thinking, i wonder how well does whipple evaluate talent, or does he have more confidence in his ability to coach a qb up more so than he evaluates the talent of the kid, i'm just wondering does shannon let whipple make that call on the next qb recruit, or what. I just don't want a guy here that's garbage and whipple leaves and the next oc has to deal with him. Than again, we got cook in the hole for now as well as highsmith and for real ray ray if need be. Right now i need to remind myself though, as long as shannon and company is here, the qb position won't be a problem because only true competitors will apply.

Which begs the question, some people say a qb is the leader of the team, so if that's true, and you're qb doesn't have to compete to earn his spot, how in the hell are you ever going to have a competitive team. Apparently this affirmation never was told to someone with the 1 qb recruit a year philosophy.

Matter of fact, the way the guys are working this year when nobody's watching, and the fire they feel inside that only burns inside the hearts of champions, this is the only song i can think of that's going to help represent the team this year WE BALLIN BOYZ!
