procanes good stuff!

Didn't John Routh receive the most Miami Hurricane National Championship rings of anyone because of the NC years with the baseball team and football team?

I've heard that few times but maybe its a Coral Gables urban legend.

It would totally, absolutely kick azz if Truth turned out to be Sebastian!

Soup with every Canes Football roster ever printed,pinned on each wall in his office.

Tiny little red X's scrawled across hundreds of names,

Walls covered with various Canes team pictures with the Ibis standing at the end of the row, grinning to himself, peering out of his feathery head at soup.

How many millions of dollars are silk screeners and T shirt printers making off of MJ tribute shirts this week?

I have a friend that makes bumper stickers/decals/prints tee shirts.

I remember When Dale Earnhardt was killed, he called the two other guys that work with him into the shop less than an hour after Earnhardt was pronounced dead.
They had designed and printed over 2,000 shirts by noon that next day. They sold out in two days.
During those two days they designed and ran off 10,000 rear window #3 tributes and sold them to every race car/auto parts/Chevy dealer that week.

That's a tiny three man part time operation
Think what the big dogs are making right now.

Dang it! Never even thought of that?

Back to square one...

solar - who is this "Matt Bosher" ranked #14?

I can't remember the last time a TE was relevant at The "U". I think Greg Olsen was 2nd in receiving yards in 2006, behind "DUCK!!" Leggett, with 400+ and only 1 TD.

If you're not utilizing them in your offense, don't see why a lot of kids would want to be part of it.

Gresham from Oklahoma is a stud. Him coming back this year for Oklahoma is just as big, if not bigger, than Spikes coming back for the Crocs. The Crocs D could make it without Spikes ... Bradford NEEDS Gresham as his blue blanket. It'll be interesting to see him against the Canes.

Six,

It's just weird how we went from having the most atheletic TEs to guys that just take up space.

You are right about high school kids thinking, well they got Pat Nix that doesn't have an offense, and they got Kyle Wright that doesn't have a clue.
I would have looked somewhere else too.

I think Whipple will have that attitude TEs have towards us changed before he leaves.

also real sorry in the loss of your friend.

Good Afternoon Spacers,

Sorry I was on vacation for a few days in Ft.Myers beach.. Very enjoyable weekend but I might have pushed myself a little too hard in the volleyball tournament.

Anyways it sucks to hear about Kent and Bunche..

Truth,
Why is it set in stone that Kent won't be back? I mean is it impossible for him to make up the difference that he needs?

OCALACANE

...

CaneSawMassacre

What is the ... for Ocala? Did I say something wrong?

DZ8

No CaneSawMassacre, just dead time around here. It sounds like Kent will be going to a different college. Once he gets started there he loses a year if he tries to transfer.

Bunche going to a prep school is cool, especially Milford? up in NY. He is a New Jersey kid (Milford close to home) and I just found out his cousin is AJ Highsmith, incoming frosh. Also last year we got Brandon Washington from Milford and Harper sounded like he still wanted to come but couldn't get the grades up. Two years ago we kept Cooper after he got sidetracked at Milford. We have a good track record of keeping recruits that go to Milford.

Prince going to another four year school sucks for us but wish him the best of luck.

Is Joe Brennan coming to the U???

Joe Brennan is one of the better quarterbacks in the Northeast Region and has plenty of offers to choose from, however it looks like the Cherry Hill, N.J., native is nearly ready to make his final decision before mid July.

Joe Brennan(Camden Catholic)
Cherry Hill, NJ 6-4/195/4.65 Interest for Miami High...Other schools of interest: Wisconsin, Stanford, Duke, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Temple

Bunche might be from Deleware, either one is "in the neighborhood".

j.w.

Good afternoon spacers! From what I read, Brennan isn't deciding anything this week.

Solar,

I know for a fact Sebastians are now students.

(There is a competition, and a "few" students are used each season.)

j.w.

Sebastian is now a student? Times have certainly changed.

USA will be back, like we always do. This game was the warning announcement. The rest of these soccer fools are shakin' in their pants because the Big Dog is about to dominate something else.

After we whoop Brazil, we should go on a Worldwide Beatdown Tour. First stop- England. Second stop- Germany. Third stop, those puzzified French. Then the icing on the cake...a good old fashioned azz-whoopin' of Mexico is Mexico City.

Get ready. We're not supposed to be this good this fast. This is an omen for the Canes season.


USA!!! USA!!!! USA!!!! USA!!!

Well if that's the case there's no contest.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Solar, thanks for that video reminder of Jacory.

I honestly don't think the people writing these predictions for next season saw that drive, the OT drive or the Duke game, hell, even the NCST and Cal games.

That drive esp. showed his calm, his unflappable "will win" attitude. He faced 3rd and 12 or whatever from his 2 yard line. Then a 1st and 15. Then a 3rd or 4th and long and pulled them all out.

Jacory and the Jets are going to cause a lot of arguments and headaches among DBs and DCs.

The Truth

CSM

I wrote probably by way of how I speak. He can't get in here. It's not even really a clearinghouse thing.

He has to go somewhere else. They were worried about it all along and almost pulled the plug back in January.

Solar, that's true but how often do these events happen, and what do the little dogs do in between??

I'd take a consistent gig over that any day. Feast or famine unless you're a big dog.

Truth, would you say this is almost a blessing in disguise because he was definitely a RS. Now we have another ship for one of these OL or CBs or another safety for 2010.

Hurriphin

Phin'........the U.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

don't see how the clearinghouse flagged Bunche. He was taking AP courses in his senior year and supposedly had very good grades. Such BS.

Solar, see it's statements like this that make me really wonder what these guys think when they write.

We actually BEAT VT last year with Marve, Nix, Cook, Davis and a bunch of other freshmen. But VT will suddenly improve significantly but we'll basically stay the same.

HUH????

The Truth

Yeah and 86 said it

Losing Kent isn't much of a loss by the staff. No one is crying believe me. Hope that answers your question Cav

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

All About Sports ranks the ACC Linebacking Corps

1) North Carolina Tar Heels

The Heels had the #1 defensive line in the ACC, now they have the #1 linebackers in the ACC. Obviously North Carolina now can claim the best front 7 in the ACC going into the 2009 season. Junior Quan Sturdivant led the nation in solo tackles with 87 and will play the middle. 6-3 230 lbs junior Bruce Carter will man the strong side. The Heels have plenty of young talent to provide depth. Sophomore Zach Brown is the likely starter at the weakside linebacker position. Sophomore Herman Davidson and 4 star freshman Kevin Reddick will compete for playing time.


4) Miami Hurricanes

After missing most of last season talented Colin McCarthy injury looks to return as leader of an athletic but somewhat inconsistent linebacking crew. Sean Spence the ACC's defense rookie of the year is only 6-0, 211 but is a hard hitter. Senior Darryl Sharpton will likely handle the middle. Arthur Brown arguably the nation's top linebacker recruit in 2008, looks to begin fulfilling the high expectations he came in with.

>>>>>>

See how they gas UNC but don't mention our five star sophomores we have "providing plenty of talent and depth."

They even mentioned VT's ex-teammate but no mention of VT the playmaker.

I'm not saying we have the best LBs but dam. They diss Spence by quoting his weight from last year right after they state he was the All-ACC.

The Payback Tour commences Labor Day.

solarcane

CG,
yea after reading it again, it does sound like something off an AM country station...my bad lol


Capt O
I agree about having to strike while the iron or heat press is hot.

When something that stirs millions of people's emotions happens there's fast big bucks to be made.

9/11 was a windfall for country singers sucking up on the Patriot angle.
Same for flag makers.

WalMart cleaned up on the NRA saturated southern and western states with all those US flags they sold.

The same guys I told you sold all the Dale Earnhardt tributes where right there pounding out 9/11 items.
Business is business.

Capt O we are better off flying under every one's radar.
Let the two bit hack bastards( copyright Cavaleer)write anything based on how we used to play.
With everyone jotting a win on their schedule it will be a big surprise to some folks when we upset a couple big names.

I think Davis, Beamer, Jimbo, Paul Johnson and Stoops are too smart to think we won't come out all guns blazing with Whipple here.

97 here right now,
Out to mow,feed roses,cut,limbs, and burn a brush pile....

to hell with sittin around an air conditioned club on South Beach ogling 20 year old South American girls, and blobing on Canespace.

I finish my chores early enough
I can run down to the Dairy Queen and watch the 50 year old farmers wives sit on their pick up tailgates and suck back Oreo Blizzards between the gaps in their teeth.

The Truth

Someone asked me today who the best football player was that I have seen play in the past 20 years at the HS level...I never as Peterson in HS so it could have been him...but i've seen A LOT of football and I have never seen a kid this good.

You'll be shocked. Makes Vick look like a tool. All phases of the game he was the best...

Better tha Deon.

Truth I hear ya..
I loved those dudes
I had a flower pot I would wear drumming a few times, I could never score one of those
sleeveless wet suit with a foreskin tops though, I looked everywhere.

back tonight

The Truth

But then again...I have never been so sure of a 1st tound NFL player in the waiting as i was when Miami was going hard after Adrian Peterson.

Better all around football player was Iverson...but NO ONE doubted AP was going to be the top college running back by the time he was a soph...

The Truth

Solar,

Sincerely you should get a job as a writer for Letterman or SNL.

I get more laughs from you in one day on the "space than I do in a year watching "comedians"

Like they tell me in Tally, " I'll tell you what buddeh...You one funny sombitch."

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Cat 5, fenugreek is excellent and should be in that mix as well.

Daily Detox has been around a while. It was one of the first "herbal" teas I ever drank, back in the early 90s. Most of the ingredients in it I've consumed raw and let me tell you, those are FOR REAL plants, compounds.

Dandelion and Yellow Dock are very, very rich in minerals and vitamins and are very, very bitter for this reason.

I took Yellow Dock for a while and actually began to like the extreme bitter taste. It was interesting because at first I could barely smell the stuff without wanting to earl. haha

After a week, though, I liked it.

CaneSawMassacre

Thanks Truth, I thought u were saying Prince was going to prep.

I guess he doesn't want to wait. ..

So Truth is there any one bit of information, one little peice you could tell us, that would give us some more hope and believe for 2009, instead of just having to drink the kool aid.

What would be your co-sign for the Canes in 2009 slogan?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Solar, you're right about the two-bit hacks but if we ROMP at Doak and VT, we won't be below anyone's radar, and I think we can ROMP both of them.

GT and OU will be the battle-royales.

The Truth

It's not that Kent can't wait...he just isnt...eh...he can't wait. That's a good way to put it.

Kool-Aid? I ain't drinking no Kool-Aid. The OL better bring it and the DL, too.

the team still doesn't have much depth all around.

Still, I believe in Whip and think this squad can win 2 more games just because of him from last year.

CaneSawMassacre

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhh, Gotcha.

Hmmm. How come it took the coaches so long to figure it out?
