JSQ...glad to see your back and made it home safe. It sure was a good turnout by UM fans and a great time was had by all over in Tampa!

SOUP

Chi Cane 98...no t-shirt sorry, third is the new first.

JUST KIDDING: Of course U get a shirt!

Email me your mailing addy and SIZE to:

host@canespace.com

and I'll send U one out this week.

Just curious...how long have U been trying to get a FIRST and were you even breathing when U saw you had a real chance at it?

Lou of M

I knew this game was in the bag when I saw the 3 usf male color guards..

86 any more pics of the formations.. thats the stuff i love.. by that pic alone I'll tell U what D miami is running.. (more like the QB pre-snap read).

Miami in Nickel D--
the 2 safeties are playing halves aka 2 deep.. the outside corners are playing bump and run man...
the Nickel back(in the slot) and the 2 LB's are trying to disguise if they are in zone or man.
two more frames and I'd know for sure but my guess is both LB's dropping in Zone while reading run first, and that nickel back will be in man.


Dam only one more game left this year :(

DallasTX Cane

Really nice to see the CANES finish strong and take care of business. Great season in that we did as we were supposed to do, IMO. We didn't overachieve, but had the opportunity to do so if we hadn't beaten ourselves twice. We certainly didn't underachieve either. The games were FUN again (except for VT)! I'll take a young, exciting team getting better with a huge upside over the slop we've been suffering thru the past three years.

CANE FANDOM should be VERY EXCITED about the future.

Congrats 2009 CANES - players AND coaches - GREAT SEASON!

Lou of M

Those new uniforms were horrriibblee!! Looked like a 3rd grader designed them. I could of done a better job...

16 grams

What i hated most about the uniforms was it was hard to read the number of the players and dam near impossible to read the name on the back of the jersey..

if they were gonna go with a 2 color number the pants shoulda been green and orange not all white..

Lou of M

The only thing dope about the uni's were the gloves

SOUP

HM...I have a few more formation photos that I'll post later. They also used the LBs to read run first and then spy the QB who as U know scambles a LOT!

When U sit up top U see a lot of formations and away from the play action. I have one in LIVE action with great 1:1 coverage by the each Cane DB LOCKED UP with their man all across the field.

SOUP

HM...check email. I'll send you another with the photos attached later. If U want to use them on your blog to talk formations and coverages that's cool too.

C'mon guys. I loved the new uni's. The CANES looked sharp from head to toe. I guess my taste is different b/c I loved the one orange sleave thing we wore vs. G Tech. Didn't like the outcome as much back then though

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

Soup, never really ever tried being first. I pretty much read the blog and comment every so often. Really could not believe when I logged on that no one had posted and debated for a few seconds to make the 1st comment.

Any ways, a great season for the 'Canes. Very proud of the team. Hopefully they will win their bowl game and build momentum for the '10 campaign and preseason top 5 or 10 ranking.

Looking forward to congratulating Randy and his coaches when they make their annual trip up to Chicago this spring.

CGNC

New Uni's needed some color - too white for me. LOL the O-Line looked like marshmallows

moneycane

Man this season was a blur. We gripped and complained about this and that, and before you know it the season is over. Just think for the next couple of saturday's there will be no CANE football. That's why I try to enjoy every game as much as I can.

Six

I know Damien Angry Berry liked the new threads the Canes were wearing ... I have it on tape & am going to try and upload it as soon as I can

moneycane - those uni's that the Canes wore with the orange sleeve were butt ass ugly, it was embarrassing ugly like some quilt an old lady with cataracts put together out of shop rags and hunter's vests

Come on brah, you got more style than that, ha

moneycane

Soup what's the deal with the creepy looking security guard behind you. He looks like he is posing for his facebook profile pic. I swear i've seen that dude on to catch a predator. If you look close you can see Chris Hansen's shadow by the stairs

Six

Ya, they did look like big Stay Puff Marshmallow Men like CGNC said

The whole team did look bigger in those uni's though, like a lot of other people on here said. Not that some of them needed that to help them look big

Did I mention that Orlando Franklin scares the pee out of me? Dude is LARGE and has that crazy twitch in his eye

CGNC

Six - LOL you have a way with words

got the first email soup.. understood and thanks

moneycane

Damn Six u didn't have to crush my dream like that. I just though they were cool. Although I was a 23 year old pot head at the time.

You were spot on about the Tecmo Bowl reference. I remember dropping back 80 yards and throwing a 2 yard touchdown to Jerry Rice. I watched BJ when he went to Lincoln and I dont remember him scrambling that much.

SOUP

Money...that dude was eyeing me from the get go. Or maybe it was Mrs. 86 he was eyeing? Hmmmmm...that makes more sense!

Either way he's one of those dudes who takes his job seriously. U would be wise to keep your distance. LOL

I likes the new unis myself. I didn't think I would but I did.

I'm still waiting for someone to join me in the "I think every song is about the Miami Hurricanes" support group.

Until then, I'll be singing along with "I've Got U Babe" on repeat.

Soup, WAY TO RUB IT IN. Now can someone please direct me to a USF blob.

CGNC, that's funny. I think a little more color or a top or bottom with full orange would be sharp but they looked like Storm Troopers to me.

moneycane

moneycane - sorry brah, ha. You gotta go back and look at those though man.

You know how you see some guy rolling around at the store or on the street and he's wearing a crazy shirt that looks like a mix between a Ed Hardy some kind of animal picture & ugly long sleeved silky Roca Wear shirt .... looks like a paint factory exploded on it in all the wrong places .... and that guy bought it in the mall at some store named "N.Y. GENTLEMEN THREADS" .... and you wonder what in the hell kind of mirrors or jedi mind tricks the salesmen in there have to get someone to buy that puke on threads?

I think that's what Nike did with those uni's that had the one sleeve.

The VTech ones were even worse ... the UiF Croc ones were the overall worst. Just orange and blue together looks like a middle school combo

Six

moneycane - Ya, I remember all that about Tecmo Bowl, I loved it.

I'd use the Chiefs just to use the "Nigerian Nightmare" Christian Okoye and also Barry Word in the backfield. Everyone else I knew always tried to use Bo Jackson or would use Eric Dickerson. They had a lot of beasts on that game ... LTaylor for the Giants and the Giants running game, obviously ... Derrick Thomas on the Chiefs ... the whole Philly Iggles D was NASTY and Randall Cunningham was unstoppable ... of course the Niners like you were saying .... I loved that game

Yeah that group hasn't caught on as much as we though it would. I know "they" are out there but they are obviously still in the closet and not ready to come in for treatment yet.

BTW...how are those psych meds we mixed into the jello shots workin' out for U? U did the orange ones right? LOL

Explain to me how.

JC

Hey ya'll, now that the stress of football season is over maybe I can come back and chat sometimes. Though I know there is another JC on here, but I think it has been nearly a year since I chimed in, tho I do read. Can't take the excessive highs and lows from week to week during the season though.

I think 9-3 in an absolute sense was a great year. It is disappointing to think they had an opportunity to go 11-1, but on the flip side they were lucky to win at Wake, so really 10-2 I think is the max they could have reasonably gotten. Still not enough to pass GT unless Wake had beaten them, in which case the Hokies are probably in the ACCCG now, so nothing really changed. I'd rather GT than VT.

I just hope we get the Gator Bowl, since it is more high profile and would cement the similarities between this team and 1999, which would be super. But if it is in Orlando, at least its easier for us to go!

As for the unis, I have to agree that they are not so great, I hate all white whenever the Canes do it. But I do really like the gloves, those should stay.

As for next year, I am very hopeful for big things, but it won't be easy. Miami plays @ Ohio State and @ Pitt in the first month. OSU will be top 10 at least, if not top 5, and Pitt will be top 15 if not top 10. And they finish up with USF at home. That is a tough OOC sked.

And in the ACC, they have to play @ Clemson and @ Georgia Tech, who will both be ranked. So that is four road games against ranked, talented teams. Not saying the Canes won't be up to it, but the schedule won't be front loaded or easy. Va Tech, FSU, and UNC at home will also be challenges.

At the very least, it is ACC title or bust. They can probably afford to slip up in one of the four road games. If that happens to be against OSU only, then it would be eerily similar to 2000 when the Canes lost to an elite team on the road then blitzed the rest of the sked to get to 11-1. History repeating itself anyone?

JSQ

BTW...how are those psych meds we mixed into the jello shots workin' out for U? U did the orange ones right? LOL

Posted by: SOUP | November 30, 2009 at 02:53 PM

Not so great, 86: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=40276192&l=7c9450e93c&id=10600596

They had some unintended side effects - see above, me pictured after someone insulted Randy Shannon. I'm about to throw down there.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I think VT wore their pro combat unis twice, is there a chance we might do the same and maybe wear them again during the bowl game but instead of all white, maybe like all orange or all green???? that would look hot!

JSQ

The right photo is not showing up. I have a photo of me making my "game face" that is pretty intimidating. It's not exactly Orlando Franklin-esque, but I'm pretty fierce looking.

reggaebob

at first all i did was moan about these unis, but i have to say they really do look good in a rout. The jersey itself leaves something to be desired, but the pants are sick.

In any case, im sure everyone here is fairly proud of how this team played this year, and the "experts" finally got the record right.

Oh and one final note - Im so glad that UGA beat GT. I dont care if its SEC vs ACC, ive always liked the dawgs and it was nice to see UM alum willie martinez have a nice showing in what is probably his regular season game as DC. I never thought he was a good coordinator, but he is a cane nonetheless.

moneycane

Is it just me or does Orlando Franklin look like Keenan from Keenan and Kel. I hope he doesn't read the space or I'm in trouble

Daytoncane

and with that, Charles Weis is gone. look for him in the next nutrisystem commercial.

the guy who i think should be the hire is Gary Patterson. Patterson has led TCU to 8,9, and 10 win seasons almost every year he's been there. and being in Texas, he probably has strong Midwest ties.

also ND has sucked on defense for the longest time. Patterson would rectify that problem with the quickness. and he's the guy that most resembles Urban Meyer to me, a guy that has consistently won at smaller schools. i just hope he's a better person that Meyer.

as much as it pains us to say it, ND, along with all the other traditional powers, is good for college football. you guys don't want to see teams like TCU, Boise State, and Utah in the major bowl games? then the traditional powers must return to prominence.

reggaebob

Posted by: Daytoncane | November 30, 2009 at 03:12 PM

Patternson would be a very wise move for ND. He wouldnt cost as much as Stoops or that guy from gaineseyville (despite saying he wont take it, its Notre Dame...), which is of concern considering their huge buyout of the man once called "the inventor of offense." Patterson is also a great strategist, and with the way ND schedules these days he should have them to double-digit wins within 3-4 years.
