Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

It's funny how recruiting sites all of a sudden give 4 stars to Quinton Dunbar as soon as he commits to those Turds when he only had 3 stars for the short time he was committed to us, check rivals!

Apologies if it was taken the wrong way.

Better 2 sport baseball/football combo player:

jeff samardzija or riley cooper?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Shwarm, for some reason I think Bailey stays. He's just so cool and collected, I don't see him being pressed about the NFL, especially when he's really starting to come into his own.

The only pull might be the new contract/salary realities.

I'm with you on Hank. He has almost NO reason to stay. He might not be 1st round but he's just tapping into his ability and he's having a great season. Plus he has a family.

Coop needs to go just to save face really. The money is the real reason though.

SSIB, it's just money operating. There are hundreds of thousands of Gators

If using your anus to ensure Tebow remains a "virgin" is considered a sport, then Cooper excels in three.

Esteban

Cav, what he's saying doesn't sound false, but gotta know its going to be slanted negatively cause he's obviously still upset about how it was when he was there. Plus when he added in that he was better than Reynolds that shows he still had ill feelings. It's not like he was benched. He played - started. He just never balled cause he wasn't that good. If he says what he says and doesn't throw in that he was better than Reynolds than it could be taken as the true feelings of most players about what's going on. But he showed he speaks for the scorned FSU players and not the majority.

Jeff Samardzija or Riley Cooper?

Posted by: Sean Spence is a Beast


Samardzija, easily.

He was a hell of a lot better pitcher than Cooper is a position player and I don't think Cooper is going to go down as the All-Time Crocs Leader in reception yards like Samardzija did for Notre Dame.


2008 - Cooper hit .162 in the SEC regular season in 37 At Bats - had 16 Ks, 4 Runs, 6 Hits, 1 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI

2009 - Cooper hit .216 in the regular SEC season in 37 At Bats - had 18 Ks, 4 Runs, 8 Hits, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 4 RBI

So he's a career .162 hitter in 2 years of SEC regular season (74 At Bats), 8 Runs, 14 Hits, 2 2Bs, 1 3B, 3 HR, 11 RBI, 7 BB and 34 Ks

Six

Riley Cooper is also one of the biggest pieces of s*** on Earth to me -for that dirty ass slide he did on Scott Lawson at 2nd base- during the game back on March 1st when the Canes beat the hell out of the Crocs, 16-2 .. for a 3 game series sweep up in Gainesville

I remember that game vividly and how pissed it got me watching it - esp. after not seeing the type of retaliation that should've happened by Cane pitchers

4 Canes batters were hit by the Crocs pitchers & Cooper pulls that spineless crap at 2B on Lawson

Unwritten rules of baseball say, you hit one of my guys .. one of your guys is getting tattooed as well, or maybe getting a 4 seamer buzzing behind their back at around belt level to send a message to your pitchers to knock the crap off

canechic

Six I remember that vividly and I was jumping up and down like crazy, that was some dirty crap.

Solar if you think these football players are getting a "top notch" education, I have a story for you about that will make you change your opinion. I have to tell you off the blog.

From Manny and the Miami Herald, this quote says so many things, thanks Chavez:

"The transition from high school to college is all mental," Chavez Grant said when I asked him why some of the young players aren't ready to contribute yet.

"You're going to get faster, you're going to get stronger, but this game is played between your ears. You have to understand where you are and where you need to be, what plays are called, what those plays are designed for. And what those guys are struggling with is that. You can't just learn two coverages if you're going into a game with six coverages. Then, the coaches would have to pick and choose based on what you can do. That's the biggest problem. They have to learn the plays. Physically, Brandon [McGee] can play football. Arthur Brown, he can play with the best of them. Arthur Brown will be the first one to find the ball in practice. But when it comes to schemes, blitz coverages and blitz pacakges, dropping into coverages those are not those guys' strong points. And it's not the coaching. We're all in the same meetings. We're all getting taught the same way. If those guys really want to learn, they have to put in the extra time."

Wow some things I tried to point out on Sunday.

2 of the worse secondary players giving interviews lol

TIME: 12:00 P.M. EST
VENUE: Land Shark Stadium




Miami chose ACC foe Virginia as its homecoming foe this season.

It's possible Virginia was picked because of how the Cavaliers closed out the Hurricanes' former home two years ago - before Jacory Harris arrived on campus for Miami.

Harris and the No. 16 Hurricanes look to hand the struggling Cavaliers a third straight loss Saturday when Virginia visits Land Shark Stadium two years after a memorable win over Miami at the Orange Bowl.

Miami (6-2, 3-2) suffered one of the most embarrassing losses in the storied program's history in 2007 when Virginia won 48-0 in the Hurricanes' finale at the Orange Bowl. Miami spent 70 years at the famed stadium, had numerous former stars in attendance and was handed its worst home loss since a 70-14 defeat to Texas A&M in 1944.

Virginia (3-5, 2-2) went on to play for the ACC title that year, but has since fallen on hard times and appears headed for a second straight losing season.

The mood is different in Miami because of Harris, who split time as the starter last season before earning the full-time job in 2009. He was named conference player of the week for the third time this season for his heroics in last Saturday's 28-27 victory at Wake Forest.

Harris completed 22 of 43 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner to Travis Benjamin with 1:08 left that finished a nine-play, 82-yard drive. Miami trailed 27-14 after three quarters.

The star quarterback was sacked five times, bringing that total to 14 in the last three games, before recovering to lead the Hurricanes to victory.

"He got hit tonight," Hurricanes coach Randy Shannon said. "He got hit a lot tonight and that shows the kind of maturity he has."

Miami bounced back from a 40-37 overtime loss to Clemson the week before and maintained its hopes of winning the Coastal Division. The Hurricanes are trying to catch No. 10 Georgia Tech, which has already lost to Miami.

"It's starting to change, just a little bit," Shannon said. "We've got to stay focused as a team, but I think the players really, really, truly understand how good they can be."

Virginia is familiar with Harris after he starred in relief of a struggling Robert Marve in last year's 24-17 overtime win for Miami in Charlottesville. Harris threw a game-tying touchdown with 55 seconds left in regulation to Laron Byrd to cap a 95-yard drive and added a winning score to Aldarius Johnson in the extra session.

That started a four-game season-ending losing streak for Virginia, which has continued that dismal play in 2009. The Cavaliers gave up 16 points in the final 3:45 last Saturday in a 28-17 home loss to Duke.

Quarterbacks Jameel Sewell and Marc Verica combined to complete 13 of 38 passes for 107 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Virginia has produced an ACC-low six touchdown passes.

"We dropped some balls," coach Al Groh said. "In college football these days, with a few exceptions, success comes with the passing game."

The Cavaliers may be happy to be on the road after being booed off the field in a second straight home loss that has called into question whether Groh will return. He fired his son, Mike, as offensive coordinator after Virginia went 5-7 in 2008.

"I don't have anything to say," Groh said. "I know a lot more about the situation than probably anybody. Maybe some day I'll say what that is."

It is unclear whether Sewell will start after a chest injury forced him out of last week's loss. Verica completed 27 of 41 passes for 240 yards and one TD in last year's loss to Miami.

"We have to pick it up on every level," Cavs nose tackle Nate Collins said. "The biggest thing is that we all stay together. After a loss, it is easy for a team to start pointing fingers, and pinning the loss on certain guys. We are all a team, and we lose together just like we win together."

I JUST LOST ALL RESPECT FOR HANK --- COKER MENTALITY

“For me, it is tough to not play down to the level of our opponents because you are expecting to win and it is not very exciting and then warming up is very flat,” Hankerson said. “You would rather have a bigger game or a bigger team that you would go up against.”

Don't worry about it dude. It wasn't even a nasty statement. We just have a difference of opinion, that's all.

While the player does seem to have some valid points it's tough for me to take him very seriously when his tone is so bitter.

Canestruck

All I am saying is that is not the old Cane mentality. Anyone on here would agree.

CanesAddiction

in that Herald article Coach Shannon was quoted saying that we aren't the same team we were in the 1st four games.


Injuries have made us way different, especially on defense. No new players coming back from injury this week (RS said that too).

This team could be in trouble guys. Coach sounds pretty worried and he never gives the media that kind of access into what he's thinking.

Let's cheer our butts off this Saturday! Go Canes!

Bailey just said on QAM that he is coming back next year, awesome.

mi@mic@ne

Things we are good at that will help us make up for the youth. Cause the Cane team that took GT apart was the real Canes.

1. On the o our receivers are a head taller in the man to man down field. We exposed the DDs on that last series. We need to dial up those kind of down field patterns though out the game.

2. We have some good misdirection play action with the roll out... thats good for medium range passes. Then we can run off of our strengths in the passing game.


We are going to face the Groth buzz saw . He knows how to beat the Canes. He will throw to Te in front of lbs all game long and in different parts of the field. He will throw to the backs out of the back field. He will spread us out and use the mid range pass to get us on our heels. We need to bring some pressure with blitz package and bring up the pass d to jump the te and backs... by mixing it up with different blitz packages to how our lbs and cbs position themselves to flood the middle part of the field. We got to get a pick or a big hit.

Canechic - I was saying this on here during the game on Saturday, becuase for people to say it was the coaching was just being blind. When you see guys out there looking so bad, that's when you know its the players.

This piece by Manny was one of the best in awhile as I think it took an honest look at problems. As much as Phillips and Grant leave something to be desired on the field, I think they are both leaders on this team and I do respect what they have to say.

Super - Great news about Bailey as that was my inkling. Sounds hokie, but to come from the place he did, to complete college with a degree has to mean something even extra special.

Good post and U are correct. We may need to go with the nickle pacakge most of the game. I sure hope Chavez Grant is ready to make some plays. Grant, Phillips or VT are going to need to man up on the TE or they will kill us over and over again with the TE.

There are no key injuries on offense (apart from JJ) so they are goona have to hold up the team until the defense can get healty again.

SCORE POINTS!!! Give me 35-45 points and I will rest easy...

Two things about Virginia,

1) Very good point about the manhandling we got at home last time. I hope the players keep that in mind, and of all games, left from a motivational pre-game speech, this one might be the most important.

2) Virginia plays a 3-4. While I know running wise you want to pound it up the gut on a 3-4, passing is things like out routes, etc or do you really try to stretch the field?

Have to? Of course not.

Want to? Of course I do!

It the Canespace way. U are one of our long-time female bloggers and drive from Key Largo to every football game, even a few basketball games at night with your daughter (raise them right!).

U are a real fan. U deserve the ticket. And, I just want people to GO TO THE DAMN GAME! I drive four hours from near Orlando, no excuses.

What time do U plan on arriving at the stadium. Where do U park? I am parking in East 22, but will walk anywhere to find U and tailgate at W22 or the RV lot in the northwest corner.

Shoot Canespace has given free tickets to Cat5 and all he ever does is drink Budweiser, chase the cheerleaders around the parking lot until they tire out and agree to take a photo with him and tell me how to run the blog!

JUST KIDDING CAT5, J/K!!! U need one too?
