anybody got anything new on moncur? as soon as one of the writers starts talking about us being injury free, everybody gets hurt.

solarcane

dayton,

that's the amazing thing Bolt is barely coached, does all this on his own since he was a little kid

I'm just skeptical I guess. It's the times we live in now.
I guess Hank Aaron was about the last bigger than life honest to goodness hero I trusted completely.

you could be right, I'm just not sold yet.

Daytoncane

solar, maybe the guy is just good. its kinda hard to trust sports figures now, but this guy looks legit. i overheard something on espn news saying that he has been setting records since he was 16. and it is even more impressive that a guy over 6'3 " can get out of the blocks and hit full stride so quickly.

typically those taller guys run 200s, 400s, hurdles, and high jump.

just think if benjamin were that fast.

CanesAddiction

I'm looking for a link to tonights Hurricane Hotline at WQAM...I wanna listen to it.

Google is giving me the run around!

NEW BLOG IS UP...

CanesAddiction

Optimist - I love that you still have hope and faith in the modern record breaker. I, on the other hand, am waay too jaded to believe much of anything incredible these days.

You promise to be one of the first on this board to come and say you were wrong if/when it's proven he's a user?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

86, with the program's revival this year and especially next year, everything will be easier for you, easier and more lucrative. And with Shannon planning to stick around for a few years, the winning won't be changing any time soon.

Mauro

He was born to run the 400

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

BG, he's clean and he's dominating those guys with his stride. He's just covering ground quicker than the shorter guys. He's shattering the old myths about taller guys not being able to start fast enough because their legs are too long.

He's clean. He's running on newer faster tracks. And the world class talent never came close to breaking Michael Johnson's 200 WR.

It's good for US. haha Challenge is always good. He's going to make a lot of coaches re-think how they teach kids to run and in what events they can run, as well as who can run in the 1st place.

86Cane

I also think I am gonna quit my day job and do this FULL TIME. Do U realize I do this P/T after working for a living. Do you even have an idea where I am right now?

U wanna guess my area code? Last night? 561. Today? 305. Tonight? 954. Tomorrow? 863. Who does that???

If I can find a way to afford it, we gonna kick some serious azz...and put some people outta bidness, if U know what I mean.

Be afraid, be VERY afraid...

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

I think Bolt's clean. Hell, I want him to be clean, so when we smash his records there will be no chatter, like with that Canadian, what's his face???

Bolt is literally hitting his stride in terms of learning how to run the 100 and the 200, and with his stride length is shouldn't surprise too many people that he's setting these times.

You can see it by the 30 meter mark. His stride is just too long for a guy like Tyson to catch who relies on RPMs.

And in the 200, forget it. The stride takes over.

86Cane

I think...he did when he was young and then stopped.

I also think...We got some Canes over here!

solarcane


ill be at unc

86Cane

UMike = Sophomore Slump

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Bolt has given us a new challenge. But he's also opened the door for bigger, taller, longer striding guys to run the 100 and 200. Before him, coaches wouldn't even let taller guys run the 100. In fact, his own coach didn't let him run the 100 for a while.

Tyson Gay won't be able to catch him because his stride is too short after 30 meters. But the next great American sprinter will come up and smash Bolt's records.

It is inevitable......

It's also funny to see how he, like other foreign athletes of late, imitates Americans with the chest pumping bit, and how the media calls it "pride" but when we do it it's "unsportsmanlike" and "arrogant."

haha

CanesAddiction

86 - right now some of us are wondering out loud whether or not Usain Bolt is on steriods.

What do you think?

86Cane

86, where did the picture of us go? Am I old news already?!?!

That's what i think too.

He should have just barely broken his own record by a hundredth every once in awhile.
to keep things cool.

The something for nothing mind set will expose him sooner than later.

gotta go with CAddic on this one.

lotta of folks loved seeing 60 or 70 hrs a season a while back then it was like...

ohhhh


peace

solarcane

unless there is some new drug that can't be detected by the tests, i think he's clean.

Bingo!
His illegal enhancement use will be well documented by Christmas or early next spring at the latest.
Enjoy the BS while you can

UMike

solar..or anyone else...do you know how long it would take me to get from Chattanooga to the UNC game?

Esteban

we need to do a canespace study.

take a cognitive test twice.

once after a week of eating everything you like eating - the worst of the worst.

and once after a healthy week of wheat grass and the like.

compare the scores. i volunteer for the first test.

Old Skool

Lol

Solar great line about the bolt cutters.

Science seems to back you up about improved focus. Here's a link to a NY Times article on how fatty foods cause declines in cognitive function.

richard gordon moving back to DE?

just rumor startin...

Esteban

i think if hes on something its on a new level -blackjack the anime movie style. sprinters who've tested positive for steriods havent come close to being as fast as he is now.

Daytoncane

His times are not just a little lower than the WR, they're waaay lower and in track that usually screams of drug abuse. I don't think Bolt is any different than the others.

Posted by: CanesAddiction | August 20, 2009 at 06:52 PM

he's clean. both he and tyson gay supposedly gave blood samples to prove that they were clean. no one told them to do it either, they took it upon themselves.

unless there is some new drug that can't be detected by the tests, i think he's clean.

Go Canes!!!

CanesAddiction

Ok, I'm just gonna come out with it.

I think Usain Bolt is on steriods.

There I said it. I have no proof. The reason I think so is because track and field is traditionally littered w/ dirty athletes and sprinters are amongst the most dirty.

His times are not just a little lower than the WR, they're waaay lower and in track that usually screams of drug abuse. I don't think Bolt is any different than the others.

Sebastian

I dont recall seeing a race where Bolt has ever really been challenged in

He said he thinks he can go 9.4 maybe even 9.3 in the 100

DAMN!!!!!!!!

Fran

bg laughed so hard at #2 (that had to hurt) almost opened the incision on my left elbow now I have to ice it

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

NCST, another game we should've won, even with Brown's questionable block in the back.

Seriously, all the teams who beat us last year will get an L this year.

bg1906

That VT game makes me sick because it reminds me just how clueless Nix was. How many time were we inside the 20 or 10 and settled for a FG?? Sheesh. And is the WR screen and QB draw the only play from his playbook that works??

What was so frustrating about Nix was that sometimes he'd string together a great drive here and there then nothing until the end of the game.

Thankfully, he, like Cook and most of the Cokerites, are gone.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | August 20, 2009 at 05:58 PM

Best drive he ever called was the first drive vs UNC last year. I was like WOW, we may have something here!

LOL. Glad I could help. haha

Here's another product for you that will round out your nutrition wonderfully.

GYNOSTEMMA. In China they call it "magic grass."

It has a chemical profile similar to ginseng but it's more mild in fucntion and is a longevity herb.

In Asia they use it to trate everything from mild depression to controlling cholesterol. It gives you energy too.

Google it and find some place that sells the tea-bag form of it. It should cost more than $9 for a box of 100 bags. 1 bag is good for 2 to 3 cups.

Peace...;-)

Just hoping the d line will be able to pin their ears back cause we will jump ahead by a couple of touches early...it will make things much easier for the young guys.

mi@mic@ne

Just get yourself a can of almonds and munch on them throughout the day... you will lose your appetite.

dj moonbat

Chambers is the biggest home-run threat among the 'Canes upperclassmen. He's got a burst similar to Cooper's, but has more fluidity and top-end speed. Like Canez1, I wonder why he's not gotten more touches. Maybe he can't block or catch worth a damn.

SebastianDaIbis

IMO it has to be some kind of practice issue

I saw some comments from RS awhile back and I took it as he had a bit of a lazy streak in him

Canez1

BG I love the way Chambers runs.

The kid has to get some touches.

Leave the hot hand in there.

Not sure what has held him back so far.

The dude makes plays when the lights are on.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

That South African runner looks like a dude but the way the female track athletes train, hell, most of them look like slim, athletic men, until you reach the face. But this one makes you think twice.


HOWEVER, I don't know why they have to run all these tests with all these experts to see if she's a she. Just drop the shorts and you'll know. Unless they think she had her maleness surgically removed so that she could run as a woman. But what are the odds that this happens in South Africa of all places? East Germany in the 1970s, maybe? haha

I think she's a she, but she's just more athletically built than most shes. I think it's the face more than the her track times that made them question her gender. If she looked like Gabrielle Union or Angelina Jolie in the grill, no one would think twice.

Actually, they would think twice and ask her if she's using some new style steroid.

Like Gayle Devers, who looked like a man until you reached her face. haha

bg1906

Just reading some old stuff. Here is what ESPN thought of Lee Chambers

Chambers is a perimeter speed back who is at his best on the outside and has the acceleration to pull away at the second level. He is a blazer. Has good size and is built like a tall cornerback. Coaches are going to want to put him on defense because of his speed, burst and change-of-direction skills. He is patient, reads block well and has a second gear to hit the crease when he sees it. Is at his best as an outside runner on tosses and sweeps. He can get to the edge, turn the corner and is a threat to go the distance every time he gets to the second level. He is a smooth and fluid athlete with great feet and hip flexibility (once again, corner could be in his future) and is explosive. Is shifty and can stop and start on a dime. He can be a nightmare for defenses to match up with and is scary out of the backfield as a receiver. He could split out wide and cause some real problems stretching the field. Has soft, natural hands and can adjust on the fly and catch outside his frame. However, if you believe in putting your best athletes on defense, and most successful coaches do, you would move him to corner. As a runner, he is not built for power, yet he isn't a finesse guy either. You would like to see him run between the tackles more to determine his ability to remain durable and take some shots, while still falling forward and gaining yards after first contact. He is a special athlete with huge upside.

I think he and Merril Noel stick with Wake. Its a long way until February, and as Truth says, ANYTHING can happen, but I don't think he picks us at the end. Hell, he may get squeezed out anyways as we'll run out of spots. We'll see, but I'm thing...NAH!

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Soup, great questions and answers. They answered all my questions. But you have to tell Steve that if any season stacked up favorably for someone breaking his TD record, it will be this year or next year with Jacory and the Jets.

Mary is lovely btw. ;-)

DATcane

(Ojomo's jaw is expected to be wired shut for approximately five weeks and it is expected that it would be several more weeks after that before he is ready to face the contact of football practice or a game. In addition, Ojomo's eating will be limited over the next several weeks which is expected to result in diminished strength and weight that could also take several weeks to recover from. Ojomo is a mid-sized end to begin with at approximately 253 pounds. His challenge will be to consume enough calories on a restricted diet to avoid significant weight loss. That could determine his capability to make a return later in the season
