I'll tell you what's impressive, is the fact that 86 gave birth to this site, had the labor pains at first but then has seen it grow into what it has become - through thick and thin, good times and bad.

Really think about how many people come here to talk Canes anything, read about Canes anything, give their opinion on Canes anything, and look forward to reading Canes anything on here. You know how many people have this site bookmarked at the top of their list? Not only Cane material here, but happenings in every day life - past, present & future - and Cane fans helping other Cane fans out.

That's what is impressive brah, damn impressive. I'm must glad there is an outlet like Canespace to help enable with the addiction to anything "U".

Old Skool - I remember reading Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead, wondering afterward just how many times I could do curls those two cinder block sized literary works.

NC's Goddard and GT's Burnett had the most INT's with 7 each in the ACC

7 out of 12 teams in the ACC were listed with at least one player in the top 27 nationally.

VT and BC led the way in team effort with 2 players snagging 6 each... That's 12 MF*** Interceptions each team...

Lovett...I hope your a spacer, cuase this shiit has to change.

Cat 5 Cane

Taking off my glasses for a minute. Those who think FSU is going to be a cake walk... keep reading.

Offense / Defense


We gave up 314 MF points last year to their 262 points allowed. Then take a peek at their offensive points. This year FSU, I think, is ranked #18.

We're going to have to climb allot of hill, this year, just to keep up with them offensively and defense has got to turn this negative number to around 200.

Cat 5 Cane

Ohhhh, I forgot to say we were dead last, Ranked 119th... with 4 INT's for the year.

Cat 5 Cane

That's 4 INT's for the team, not one person...
Being last, means even Ohio (Miami) beat us with 6 INT's.

OK... I'm going back and putting my glasses back on,... the shine is killing my eye's



Paul Dee is the current Chairman of the NCAA Committee on Infractions?

How did he get that gig?


Happy Father's Day to all the Daddy's!

The ST#26 shirts at $15 which includes shipping. We don't make any money off the shirts after production and shipping costs and $5 goes to a special fund we are trying raising to make a $500 donation to the U in Sean's name. So far we have raised around $150 of the target amount.

U can win one outright by being FIRST on the blog or by winning one of the MANY trivia contests we hacve on here on a random unannounced basis.

For example this one:

Name a UM running back and a UM linebacker that have both worn the #49?


Happy Father's Day to all the Canespace dads.


I'm drawing a blank after Darrel McClover...
Anybody else got a RB???

By the way he was on the 2001 championship team.


ahhh... Donn Scott? RB on the 1995 team?


Am I a winner 86????


And actually if anybody looks at our championship teams and rosters, the majority of our kids were from central and north florida with a mixture of Miami and out of town kids sprinkled in.... Not all Miami or Sofla kids..Which was news to me.

Also bought the vault yesterday for UM, for my Dad to give to him on Father's Day. He loved it.


UpNorth...the Legends of the Fall is something we started last year thanks to CGNC. She wrote a couple of features about past UM players like Ken Dorsey and Jeremy Shockey who by their on-field exploits became "Legends of the Fall".

So we took that lead and began an annual contest to see who could pick or predict which UM players,one on offense/one on defense, would have MAJOR breakout seasons.

It can be a freshman like Mike James or a senior like Javaris James, a popular player like Jacory or Spence or a surprise player like Sam Shields or . It doesn't matter.

Last year I picked AJ and Spence.

This year Mike James and Sam Shields.

Manny, Shandel, Gary, Don Bailey Jr. and Canes305 all have their picks in for this year. The challenge gets better and better every year!


CaneSaw...nope! Keep trying. The two I am thinking about played before 1990.


I'm watching the Gator take jive from Ole Miss.

I feel bad for you guys that like Tebow or even respect his game. It's a joke, the kid can barely look past his first read..


HINTS: The LB played on the 1989 National Championship team and the RB played in 1982 with Jim Kelly and was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings.


CSS is showing the Miami-Clemson 05 OT game at 12:30


Oh Aqua just stop it. U are just JEALOUS of Tim Tebow and his success. It is so obvious. LOL



Hey I thought you just said name a rb/lb with the number 49 lol... I guess I messed that one up. I don't know the other ones you are looking for, maybe I'll look at the vault book I just gave my father when we go over there for dinner.


Guess which ACC team these stats are from?

Yards gained rushing 3847 1951
Yards lost rushing 295 387
Rushing Attempts 640 432
Average Per Rush 5.6 3.6
Average Per Game 273.2 120.3
TDs Rushing 32 13


Man...that Athlon Sports magazine sure doen't like the Canes lol

Cat 5 Cane


If you're outside the circle, looking in... and just at results and what you've seen on TV ( We may have lost every televised game)... We look like a has-beens from a lost era.


I hope you're team drafts him 86




86 the R/B is Chuck Foreman not sure of the other


To everybody who got lucky/unlucky happy father's day. I have yet to produce offspring call my Panda Bear.


this may be old to some..but its pretty raw

All About The U...


I hope you're team drafts him 86

Posted by: Aqua | June 21, 2009 at 12:23 PM

Aqua...I hope you know I was just kidding? I was imitating Solar who beleives that if you say anything TRUE but negative about Tebow, then he assumes that you are just being "jealous".

I have no love for Tebow, or his game, but that's just because apparently I am "jealous". Whatever...


It's going to be some real serious competition in the secondary from here on out. When you got players like brandon harris, brandon mcgee, jamal reid and jeremy davis in your secondary, and price kent can actually play db as well, although his size will have him looking more at being a safety though, than throw in telemaque and possibly ray ray who i feel may outgrow that secondary position but we'll see.

This defense will be more athletic than pretty much every offense they face, and if our offense can score on the defenses we'll be fielding after thsi year, that's when it's going to happen quick.


Roughly 5 and a 1/2 years ago, my former girlfriend and current wife, gave birth to a set of twins who I named Xavier & Miami. Although they have cost me a few centimeters off my hairline, I love them more than anything in this world.


Proud Father......the U!!


Something tells me that Coach has about fifty-something sons, that are drooling at the bit to make him proud this year.......



No way it's Chuck Foreman. He was #44, and he played way before Jim Kelly's days on the team.

I was thinking Mark Rush from the Kelly days at RB, but I can't remember if it was the Vikes that drafted him. I remember he and Kelly were good friends and wanted to play together (hence, the Houston Gamblers entered the picture).


I am sure of it. It was Mark Rush who wore 49 in those days and went in the '83 draft.


Okay, now I know it was either Bernard Clark or Maurice Crum, but I'm going to bet on Maurice Crum (Sr, that is, not his son who played with the Irish...ugh).


Maurice Crum would be the lb, btw. :)


Happy dad's day to all. Gotta run and spend time with the screaming kids.


BTW, if I'm supposed to get some gear from past stuff already after your supplies are reloaded, 86, feel free to send my contribution to CaneSaw if my answers are correct (as long as CaneSaw can confirm he's a dad today!!!!) :)
