Your post makes me feel better, Trout. They always do. I was listening to the Joe Rose too this morning. Coupled with the guilt over not being able to go to the game, I was getting nervous.

well Jsq i try and give it to ya the best way i can. Like Calvin i make sense of stuff and is always defending this team. Last night game was a good game not great but hey we'll take that W. Besides we played at someone elses place and sent their blackouts back in the dark by the 4th . Whoever thought of that plan should go SLAP themselves. No way they thought that the U was going to lay down and be smacked around by UCF... AGAIN GO SLAP YOURSELF WAKE UP AND GET BACK TO REALITY.

OH yeah Calvin when aldarius is in the game we tend to blow people away even more. He really have crazy glue on his hands..lol Anyways i like how we play a road game and then go back home. Home games are always hype and so far we are UNDEFEATED THERE THIS YEAR...I DON'T THINK no one will ever BREAK that 58 home game winning streak. NO WONDER THE HATE AND JEALOUSY RUNS DEEP FOR MIAMI......

This was posted on the last blogg....By the way 86 great pics...and who is that dime in the orange top with the beer can in hand.. She can make a game enjoyable....LOL

Anyways we were deep in Orlando last night... Orange and green was spotted all over the place.


AngryCane is 100% hardcore. He puts his money where his mouth is. That is one sweet, pimped out Cane Rig. Love to see pics of the rest of the inside. Hats off to AngryCane. New found respect.

".....ramming speed"


Seriously 86 this is one of your best, great article!


canechic - ya, that was me

I called 86 a few times during the game and didn't get a connection for the first few tries .. then it did connect & I left a message

I was on the Cane sidelines, talking with Yatil Green for a little bit

I got to University & stopped at the Firehouse Subs right before the campus entrance around 5:45pm, went in to the bathroom, got back in the car & waited foorreevveerr through the worst traffic I've ever been in for any college game, went & parked in parking garage D


LOL that pic of Angry is great. Canescanescanes I don't think that is Angry's ride


Yes that is not his ride but he wishes it was!


Six - well I thought so a little advice about UCF........NEVER PARK IN THE GARAGE!!!!



Was that for real about you on the sidelins getting hit. What quarter and about what time - I have it on DVR and want to see it, if you don't mind.


Go Canes


I've been had?


canechic - I don't ever want to go to another UCF game unless it's in a helicopter

No idea why they'd put media in a parking garage. The parking garage wasn't the bad part b/c after the press conferences and everything else is finally done, most people have already been through the hell that you're glad you didn't have to go through - sitting in traffic in the parking garage

But just to get to the field once I got to University Ave. took longer than it did for the drive over to Orlando. Ridiculous. Worst stadium planning for traffic flow, ever.


Six I know! Try doing it daily while dodging 18 year old guys on skateboards....I have no idea how I have survived this long without being taken out by one of them!



86 - great pics

One of the BEST tailgates, I mean games, EVER! Sweet Lorraine, U shoulda, coulda, woulda been there!


Some pics I took with my cell phone camera at the game

- Coach Barrow checking out UCF pre-game

- Arthur Brown

- Big Allen Bailey

- C.Grant & B.McGee


The thing about the staduim to me is I always afraid of collapse. It looks like an erect a set project.


I was a witness to that 8 legged beer bong and let me tell U.....them boys were rocking it. I tried to get in on it but Angry tossed me aside.....just kidding.

It was great hooking up with 86, CC, Angry, Fran and his wife and Charlie. BTW - Thanks for the beads C, that was cool of you. 86 forgot to mention the "punch" canechic had made and let me tell you.....a few more and I might not have made it to the stadium.


More pics with my cell phone camera

U are correct! And where are the photos of U and your wife? Canechic, Jamericane and Raize email your photos to:

[email protected]

I'll post them tomorrow!


Last but not least, the final two pics

- B.McGee & S.Shields keeping hands warm

- Sebastian

Not too bad for a Samsung cell phone, eh?


Sideline photos from SIX? Great photos!!!

Nice work there dude. Only question I have is this: Did you wear your cute little "protective vest"? LOL


86 - obviously I didn't wear my crossing guard vest, b/c if I did then ...

#1 - Laron Byrd would've been so blinded by it, that he wouldn't have made that catch and run into me

#2 - You would've noticed it and said, "Hey, there's Six in his hall monitor vest", maybe I should check my cell phone that's he's been calling during the game, ha

Posted by: 86Cane | October 18, 2009 at 12:27 PM

Shoulda been is right. I did decide to go at last minute but no tix to be found anywhere and couldn't risk just showing up and paying god knows what. Where do you guys tailgate at the shark. I'll try to stop by and say hello next week - either with wifey or one of my daugthers.


UCF & Conference USA actually do it right, they give you an arm band to wear instead of that idiotic vest

Too bad their food in the media room reminded me of the 2nd Grade lunches we'd get on field trips from the school


In the "Defensive meeting 2" picture, if you look in the background, you'll see Dyron Dye in the white Miami track suit .. you'll also see in the background, with the Orange polo shirt and white hat - Yatil Green


damn just got from orlando,can i say we took over the ucf campus.great time up there,soup thanks for coming by.i felt like i was watching northwestern vs key west at the traz.everybody EVERYBODY needs to get tickets vs usf so we can take that one over as well.


I kno Shannon is really loyal to his upper classmen...moncur, cmac, sharpton, and now shields...but me and my buddy were wonder how Phillips gets his spot back as long as the younguns are performin at a high level and not making huge mistakes " I'm just sayin"

LOL. CC I kind of noticed that watching it on the feed. It doesn't look like a real stadium.


#2 - You would've noticed it and said, "Hey, there's Six in his hall monitor vest", maybe I should check my cell phone that's he's been calling during the game, ha

Posted by: Six | October 18, 2009 at 12:39 PM

Six...I kept seeing a 386 number pop up on my phone but I couldn't figure out who it was? Had I known it was U I would NOT have answered anyway. J/K and LOL

People have to understand that during games I get around 20 calls and 50 text messages. No way can I keep up and watch the game. And when things are not going well, I am in NO mood to talk anyway.

We should have talked earlier in the day then I would have known to look for U on the field. I thought U were only going to be on the field for USF I forgot about UCF too. My bad.


This was written on Friday...check out the University of VA writer...no Harris

Front-runner for ACC POY?

October 16, 2009 9:30 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

This was an unofficial Mid-Season Player of the Year poll done by e-mail Thursday. Kyle Tucker of the Virginia Pilot (he covers Virginia Tech), sent out an e-mail to several ACC writers on Thursday asking us for our top three choices for the ACC's Player of the Year based on what everyone has done to date.

Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams is leading the race.

We had 14 total voters, representing nine of the ACC's teams, plus one leaguewide rep (that's me). My vote looked like this: 1. Ryan Williams. 2. Jacory Harris. 3. Riley Skinner.

Points were assigned in reverse order (first-place is 3 points, third-place is 1 point).

Please keep in mind this is unofficial, and not every ACC team was represented, but this is how it shook out yesterday:

1. RB Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech 35 points, 9 first-place votes

2. QB Jacory Harris, Miami 25 points, 3 first-place votes

3. QB Riley Skinner, Wake Forest 14 points, 2 first-place votes

4. QB Christian Ponder, Florida State 4 points

4. QB Josh Nesbitt, Georgia Tech 4 points

5. QB Thaddeus Lewis, Duke 2 points

Here's who voted, what team they cover, and how they voted:

Andrew Carter, Orlando Sentinel (FSU) 1. Williams 2. Ponder 3. Harris

Steve Conroy, Boston Herald (BC) 1. Williams 2. Skinner 3. Harris

Susan Degnan, Miami Herald (UM) 1. Williams 2. Harris 3. Skinner

Heather Dinich, ESPN (ACC) 1. Williams 2. Harris 3. Skinner

Doug Doughty, Roanoke Times (UVA) 1. Williams 2. Lewis 4. Nesbitt

Eric Prisbell, Washington Post (MD) 1. Skinner 2. Williams 3. Harris

Shandel Richardson, Sun-Sentinel (UM) 1. Williams 2. Harris 3. Ponder

Doug Roberson, AJC (GT) 1. Harris 2. Nesbitt 3. Williams

Darryl Slater, Times-Dispatch (VT) 1. Williams 2. Skinner 3. Harris

Patrick Stevens, Washington Times (MD) 1. Skinner 2. Harris 3. Williams

Kyle Tucker, Virginian-Pilot (VT) 1. Williams 2. Harris 3. Skinner

Ken Tysiac, Charlotte Observer (NCST) 1. Harris 2. Williams 3. Nesbitt

Larry Williams, Tigerillustrated.com (CU) 1. Williams 2. Harris 3. Skinner

Norm Wood, Daily Press (VT/UVA) 1. Harris 2. Williams 3. Ponder

Six, those are great shots. Dam good for a phone camera. Thanks.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Calvin, you laid me out with David Boston post. What kind of gey shat is that?? lol

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Soup, great shots. It sounds like you all had a ball.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Texas, I was with you on that cheering for OU piece. lol

Have I missed something or did Bryan Williams have some 200+ yard games somewhere? He played well against us, aight against Bama, ??? against Duke, and he couldn't have done much against Nebraska.

I'm not knocking his talent but has he ever taken over a game and really balled??

Or are they all just up Beamer's azz?


86 - it's cool, you can't beat those photos though with my damn cell phone camera, ha, you better save those or something

I did more shooting with that than I did with the camera from work

I actually like that stadium, it's loud when it needs to be - real loud - the sideline to stands ratio is nice & not a mile away like in some stadiums

Just hate the location & traffic flow to and from it

Old Skool

Very pimped out ride.
That black outline or symbol over Angry's right shoulder makes it extra pimpin

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Seriously. Spiller has taken over more games and made for big plays. But his team is playing well below their potential.

To me, there's no comparison between Spiller and any other RB in the league, really the country.


The life of a blogger:

I leave for the game at 11 AM. Get to The Steak and Shake ON TIME at 12:15 PM. Canechic goes "no show" on me and Fran, his wife Jean and I try to find our way to the stadium around 1:15 PM.

We drive the ENTIRE Campus trying to find a place to park. Lost and stupid we luck into some lot in the RED ZONE. Funny, all the Canespacers are also there.

Fran, RaizeCane, Canezilla, Canechic, Angry, Jamericane all show up and we get organized. We drink some appletini punch (sorry Esteban!) and some spiked lemonade made by Canechic that makes Keoki's Mystery Punch taste like Kool Aid. One punch is too sweet, the other too sour, but mixed together and: OH MY GOD!

Last night I got home around 12:30 AM. By the time I shower and get a snack and beverage it's 1:30-2 AM.

I get up this am at 9 AM, no shower, no breakfast, and immediately I start dowloading the photos from the event.

Then I start writing the blog, get a working title and tell Mrs. 86, who LOVES to talk, that I need 3 hours of silence. She's not hapopy but that is the life of the wife of a blogger.

Then I start editing and inserting the photos into the text. It's noon before U know it and ON THE DOT when it's ready to go.

I post the blog article at 12 PM sharp, edit a few times for typos and now it's 1 PM. Time to hit the showers...


Soup, great shots. It sounds like you all had a ball.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | October 18, 2009 at 12:57 PM

Wicked good, WICKED GOOD!


Hurriphin.....the U.
Really good shots from a phone SIX.

Seeing all you beach boys clamoring around those heaters, like hobos around a burning shipment drum, abiet in 60 degrees, was too much!!

Guess all those guys up there in the red-stain region, don't have it so easy, do they........?

You still my dude though.
