Some decent articles by Shandel recently, btw. All info. out there has been pointing to Wylie transferring, and now it's actually put into print, so to speak, other than just at the 'Space.

JCane

Oh, and most importantly, congrats 86 on the 2nd anniversary.

Just read the article at The Herald about T.K.Wetherell of FSWho stepping down. I have to believe this is a sign that the hammer will be coming down and it will be coming down hard in Trailerhassee. This combined with the rampant rumors that Urban Myth will take the money and run to Notre Dame or that the lack of "INSTITUTIONAL CONTROL" will eventually catch-up to them has to bode well for us in Coral Gables. The Canes will own the state of Florida for the next 10-15 years and have something similar to what USC has out west.

.Going into summer ball... Who's got the toughest Job?
Randy Shannon - Head Coach
Aubrey Hill - Wide Receivers Coach
John Lovett - Defensive Coordinator
Joe Pannunzio - Tight Ends/Special Teams Coordinator
Mark Whipple - Offensive Coordinator
Micheal Barrow - Linebackers Coach
Clint Hurtt - Defensive Line Coach
Wesley McGriff - Secondary Coach
Tommie Robinson - Running Backs
Jeff Stoutland - Offensive Line

We all know great offenses fill seats and great defenses win championships... for that reason I say John Lovett. Right now he has a rough diamond awaiting polishing and this year he will be examined and tested like an colonostipy to see what he's made of.

The players and his assistants and fans are all looking at his direction... What will he bring to the table that others could not. What magic does he possess that he infused in North Carolina last year and the year before? I Don't Know, but what ever it is, I say bring it with fire in your heart... Mr John Lovett and let's get the wagon roll'n... Canes

Cat5... out!

fran

Cat5..."and this year he will be examined and tested like an colonostipy to see what he's made of. "
Man that does not sound good I don't want one of those.
I do hope Coach John Lovett brings some respectability to Canes defense

jackattck

Great articles 86... most recent + 6/13 article. Go Canespacers!

CaneSniper

Following last weeks summer camp at Miami, by my count we have now offered 13 CBs. Any ideas on how many we intend to take, and which ones those will be? Sounds like Darius Robinson will be one and Jeremy Davis is another, although he could play WR also. I like the Detroit kid, Dior Mathis on paper, but don't know much about him.

Loco

Happy anniversary canespace.. eventually i get around to writing another article or two

OceanStateCane

Happy B-day Canespace!
so happy to have found this place, my wife, not so much. keep up the good work, and that goes for everyone. love the articles, but the comments are the cheese in my macaroni.

rebirth

I hope Lovett is able to improve the teams fundamentals and technique which are sorely lacking and that he can bring some coaching ability and experience to this young staff.

Also, Im not positive, but wasnt Barrow removed from LB coach to a 'defensive assistant' or something like that?

Another assistant that Im looking to see big things from is Swasey, you all know how I feel about our S&C program lately so Im gonna be very interested in seeing how these guys look when they get on the field in Tally. I wanna see if our freshman are noticeably bigger and stronger, do our linemen look to be in better shape or are they gonna be standing with their hands on their hips sucking air like they have many times before. No more getting handled on the lines, no more little skinny DBs afraid to tackle someone. That crap better stop.

I swear, if I see the same looking team physically and I still see fat out-of-shape linemen and weak skill players Im gonna need a straight-jacket.

Cat 5 Cane

Best Quip for 2008/09

IMO...

"Snorting Kool Aid dry... Straight out of the Box!"

That's just sick good!

solarcane

Happy Birthday Canespace.

Been a lot of fun hanging with all the Spaceballers the last two years and the core Legion the year before that.

Cat5 thanks for the Kool Aid props that one just came automatic after reading 12-0 NC stuff this year.

I have some killer Canes No Kool Aid stickers I haven't sent soup yet, I'll make sure you get one.

GROW CANESPACE!
peace

Rating the best college QB youv'e seen and why Tebow isn't him
from various bloggers

"But here are things that make him drop as compared to QBs I’ve watched:

He had 32 passing touchdowns, and 23 rushing touchdowns in 2007 which is great individually…but his team went 9-4 which is bad.
He still has yet to lead Florida to an undefeated season. This is huge for me. Despite his impressive two national championships (1 starting and 1 as a reserve), both of his teams had 1-loss. Do I think rank a championship as better if it goes undefeated? You betcha.
The QBs I’m going to compare him to this decade are Vince Young, Matt Leinart and Ken Dorsey.

Records for the others:
Vince Young (30-2)
Matt Leinart (37-2)
Ken Dorsey (38-2)

Tebows record as a starter: (22-5)

You can’t tell me Florida hasn’t had the same type of talent Texas, USC and Miami had under those QBs and Tebow’s record is by far the worst. So Tebow’s record is a little unimpressive which doesn’t help him in comparisons.

I want to write more, but my main point, is shouldn’t Tebow lead his Gators to an undefeated season first before people regard him as the best ever? Why? Because there are other QBs that have won a MNC by going undefeated and people are putting Tebow in front of them."

another guy

"Tebow’s last play on the field in his only loss last season was him getting stopped on fourth down and losing the game to an unranked team in his home stadium. Colt’s last play on the field in his only loss last season was handing off to Vondrell McGee to cap a miracle 80 yard drive to take the lead by a single point on the road against a top 5 ranked team in a game in which Texas trailed 22-6 to start the second half."

another

"Great is the most over used word in all of sports.

What you call great is most times just above average. Great comes along maybe once in your life time like Bo Jackson."

peace

CONGRATS 86 on "Da Space's" success. I'm so happy I found this place and have been able to be a part of it. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend a lot of local events because were moving, but I plan on meeting other Spacers for away games that are close to me in Atlanta or NC.

Definition of Greatness

In 25 years coaching at Alabama, Bryant led his teams to


a 232-46-9 record

6 National Championships

15 Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championships (14 with Alabama; 1 with Kentucky) (and 1 Southwest Conference Championship at Texas A&M)


25 Bowl Appearances (29 including prior teams)

15 Bowl Victories, including 8 Sugar Bowl Wins

3 National Coach of the Year honors

10 Times SEC coach of the year

A member of the College Football Hall of Fame


In 38 years as a head coach for four teams; Bear Bryant only had one losing season. That season was his first year at Texas A & M (1954) when the Aggies went 1-9. However, Bryant led them to a 7-2-1 season the next year. Then, in 1956, the Aggies went 9-0-1 and were crowned Champions of the Southwest Athletic Conference.

that's long term greatness right there.

Rebirth... yes, you are correct, He was moved to assist... I got lazy and CC'd the list off the master and didn't pick up on the shift.

toughest assistants job?... trying to pick just one out of the cluster is unreal... So many positions and so many potentially great players are all lined up just waiting for a little guidance and their shot.

I Don't have a first choice on this one but I bet John will be leaning on special teams... Coach Pannunzio for heavy improvement. Not pick'n on Pannunzio only, as all should be feel'n the heat. Hell, This year is the beginning of "Show Time" ladies and gentlemen... It's time to start your engines and let the coordinators coordinate... and the the players play.

Can You Feel it!!!

HAPPY BDAY CANESPACE!

Excellent work done here 86...and Solar, CGNC, Cat5, Truth, Cav, Esteban and all the many others who make this blob the BEST location for CANES fans, especially the far-flung CANES fans, to get a fix.

This is easy. Without a doubt its Mark Whipple. The offense has been bad and searching for an identity since 2005. We've had a barrage of offensive coordinators and NONE had done the job. So Whipple HAS to perform and get the offense rolling. He is Coach Shannon's saving grace and last chance at and OC. If Whipple fails, Shannon fails, and a new regime will be leading the troops. Lets hope that doesn't happen because I really like Shannon, and I also think Whipple IS that guy we think he is.

Happy Birthday!! This site is a great source of canes information a s well as great information and debates on a variety of topics. I love reading it daily.


Go Canes...Go Cougars...Class of 91..

UpNorthCane06

I truly believe that the toughest job is for both of the new coordinators..... We do need an identity on offense but we cannot struggle on defense either so I believe it's tuff to say one is the tougher job ..... The defense has to go out and stik to their fundamentals but ball like they did in highschool..... Idk why but the offense I feel will take care of business it just must be the fact that it's jacory leading us ....

canesluvr

Toughest assistant coaching job:

McGriff because of lack of talent/depth
Stoutland because the unit has been horrible the last three/four years
and Pannuzio because special teams has been extremely inconsistent and the coverage teams has been terrible. He really needs to step up.

McGriff and Stoutlands performance will go a long way in determining the number of wins this season. But I thought Pannuzio should've been let go after last year.

Happy birthday to Canespace.

The Truth

Whipple has the toughest...BG you were spot on.

But don't discount the OL's responsibilites. The talent level there is probably as low as any position on the team. The kids that can play aren't ready yet.

He HAS to get that group ready for whip to be successful.
