Tennessee players are upset over this joke told by the Memphis Coach

"A friend of mine was in Knoxville," said West, and where else would you have expect the friend to have been?

The friend wanted to find Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin's house. When he finally found it, he saw a sign in the front yard: "Talking dog for sale."

The friend saw a Lab, sitting there.

"You the talking dog?"

"Yep," the dog said.

"What's your story?" the friend asked, and the dog told his tale.

He'd been talking all his life. He once worked for the CIA. After a while, he got tired of that and took a job in security at the Knoxville airport and -- it was about this exact moment that Kiffin showed up.

"You really selling the dog?" West's friend asked the Vols coach.

"Yes," said Kiffin. "Five bucks."

"Five bucks? Why would you sell a dog like that for five bucks?"

"He's a liar!" Kiffin said. "He didn't do any of that stuff!"

A long article but worth the read on a slow night... Today's Herald news

Miami Hurricanes' line must serve and protect
The Hurricanes offensive line plans better protection for Jacory Harris, who has been sacked 20 times in the past five games.

BY MANNY NAVARRO
mnavarro@MiamiHerald.com


Jason Fox held out his hands like a proud warrior eager to show off his battle scars. From his thumbs to his pinkies, the University of Miami's starting left tackle pointed to each of his fingers that were either broken, mangled or completely exposed without fingernails.

``It's just bumps and bruises,'' grinned Fox, set to make his 45th career start at noon Saturday against Virginia (3-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) at Land Shark Stadium.

``That's football. That's the season. Everybody is beat up. But I'd be lying to you if I told your our bodies didn't feel it going out there and hitting every week. I'm happy coach is taking it a little easier on us in practice now. Because the team that can push through [injuries] and not get complacent is the one that is going to win games down the stretch.''

The Hurricanes (6-2, 3-2) have taken quite a few licks in their first eight games -- mostly on defense.

But the offensive line, where Fox is among six iron men who have taken the majority of the snaps this season, hasn't been spared either. Fox ``banged up'' his left knee against Clemson doing what he and the rest of UM's offensive line have been asked to do a lot more of lately -- play on their heels and try to protect quarterback Jacory Harris from the blitz.

UM did a good job protecting the quarterback early this season, allowing only four sacks in the first three games. But opponents have found leaks in the Canes' pass protection schemes lately with different blitz packages.

THE KITCHEN SINK

Last week, Wake Forest got to Harris five times, bringing the total to 20 sacks in the past five games.

``People are just throwing the whole kitchen sink at us and hoping they get there before Jacory lets go of the ball,'' Fox said. ``We're doing the best we can. But when they're blitzing seven guys and we only have six guys to protect, somebody is going to get through.''

The Cavaliers, ranked 34th nationally in total defense (329.3 yards per game) and 40th in scoring defense (21.8 ppg), don't blitz often. But they are averaging two sacks a game (16 this season) and present problems for the Hurricanes in various ways, including being the only ACC team to run the 3-4 defense.

``We've seen the 3-4, but they run it differently,'' Fox said. ``It's a very unique defense. It's an NFL-type defense. It's not a penetrating-type defense. It's reading and reacting.''

UM coach Randy Shannon said: ``Defensively, they play eight-man fronts. Sometimes they'll line up and play man coverage the whole entire game. They're just going to try and out-execute you.''

PLAYMAKERS

The Cavaliers have several playmakers on defense. Defensive end Nate Collins has been named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week twice, making 35 of his 57 tackles during the past three weeks. He leads Virginia in sacks with five.

Ras-I Dowling (6-2, 200) was named to the All-ACC Preseason Team and is fourth on the team with 40 tackles.

He and fellow cornerback Chris Cook (6-2, 210) have combined for 11 career interceptions and 39 pass breakups and are part of a secondary that has given up just four passing touchdowns all season.

It wasn't until last week against Duke that the Cavaliers finally allowed an opponent to throw for more than 200 yards.

Another Virginia defensive strength: red-zone stops. Of the 27 times opponents have driven inside the Cavaliers 20-yard line, they have forced 15 field goals.

``We got out of the running game early last week because we were down. But we plan on running the ball a lot more this week,'' UM center A.J. Trump said. ``Virginia doesn't blitz as much on film. But every week we say that, and we end up seeing more blitzes. We just have to do a better job winning the battle up front.''

Got booted from the Hampton by some Cowboys in town for a damn Rodeo. Staying at La Quinta. The stuff I do! Out until 10:30...

Cat 5 Cane

LOL...Funny, Funny movie!... Saw the pic and had to do it!

Old Skool

What! With all the promotion you've done for them. Unless the Hampton's forking over some cash, I'd say bye-bye and find yourself a hotel that appreciates the props you dish out.

Skool...it's a LONG story but don't worry, I'll get it to go in my favor. I always do!

Oh god curse the souls who killed Pata and anybody who knows about it and refuses to tell the people and unless their are mitigating circumstances (i.e. fear of their life by thugs or criminals)

On a lighter note

1 day until my bachelor party and the destruction of the Virginia Caveliars.


8 days until I plunge into a lifetime of happiness, subordination, and compromise... i.e. We instead of you and I.

I'm really excited. 9 days until I arrive in Italy.


If you guys want to send wedding congratulations emails shoot me one at kenneth.c.disalvo@verizon.com (This is necessary since I might need updates on my canes, since I know the connection spotty at times)

Great people, beautiful cities, incredible food.

Frau Blucher..... :)

I'd love to see some of the old players back tomorrow as a sort of do-over from the game two years ago, and maybe see if the remotivation of players again can start after the game 2 y/a.

CaneSawMassacre

HEY... HEADS UP!

FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT WATCHING THE BOISE/LA TECH GAME ON ESPN... IT'S TURNING OUT TO BE A GOOD ONE.

Tech is storming back with the ball on Boise's 10 yd line. Current score is Boise 30/Tech 21, starting the 4th qtr...

CaneSawMassacre

PB remember any specific rest.'s? I've heard the same thing, stick to trattoria and places that locals frequent, but its hard to really know about which ones those are on the internet.

I read about a great pizza place in the cannergio district.

Sarasota 'cane

TD La. Tech! Great game!

Go 'canes!

Sorry CSM, most were hit on the run. There is so much to see there we usually did what you said above.


The city is so amazing you want to walk around every square inch of it.

If you go to Rome, don't miss the Vatican. Catholic or not it is the most incredible place I've ever seen.

Cat 5 Cane

Tech scored a TD.. score 30/28

Teck kicked off and held/stopped Boise on around the Teck 15 and the Field goal kicker missed a chip shot...

Techs ball... Ohoo boy!

CSM...I was in Spain with Mrs. 86 a few years ago and the trick is to just trust your instincts and go to anyplace that is full of people.

solarcane

CSM...I was in Spain

Well I've never been to Spain

86 Cane The Southeastern Circuit Finals are in Davie this weekend, but I still can't believe you were booted. I know I would have not stayed at the Hampton if is wasn't for Canespace!!

Cat 5 Cane

Tech stalls... punts to boise and they marched down the field and sputtered on around the 15 and then hit for a TD on 3 and 7 yds... then went for the two and got it...
Score Boise 38/28...

solarcane

Boise has too much talent at receiver to think la tech can stay with them

peace

SwagGirl

Anybody know the name of the recruit that was kicked out of the camp put on in Gainesville for flashing the "U"????

Swag...do NOT worry: "I GOT THIS!"

I will turn this to OUR advantage, trust me on this.

Cat 5 Cane

I said the same thing before the game, but tech isn't folding and is playing tough!

JCane

Tavadius Glenn of Jax, SwagGirl. It was cool. Maybe not as good as when Orson Charles, a TE who ended up in UGa, knocked over the FU champ. trophy and it shattered into a million pieces, but pretty close!

solarcane

tech plays hard every game, they are just too small a school to get the players Boise has been able to get.

peace

SwagGirl

Thanks JCANE!!!

solarcane

and then nix comes in to call plays for tech
peac

Cat 5 Cane

Well, I spoke too fast... Boise must have gotten the ball while I was up dating and just scored another TD on one running play...
Score Boise 45/28, with 4 minutes to go!...
Damn!

miamimike01

Tavadis Glenn... is that a hint?
