Ray Lewis was a stud in college. Just beyond a stud and then some in the pros though. But gotta improve to be the best at the nextlevel. Wasn't many MLBs in college I would taken over him when he came out tho. That equals pretty damn good to me.

And USF's Dline was great against FSU. Not so much against anyone else worth a damn. But they got hyped cause every one was watching that game. Pierre Loius got damn near all his sacks for the season in that game.

And I want the best 3 LBs starting next year. Hopefully for AB that includes him but if it don't than just means McCarthy gets to have more Morgan comparisons thrown his way (right or wrong) since he'll be making that transition like Morgan did. If Futch comes back even better than where he left off then I don't see how he can be a back up.

That's my favorite football terminology...SPILL AND KILL!!!

Sebastian

Take it back to the old days when they knew the scout team was going to be the best they were going to to see all week from them. Thats the kinda depth the Onion wants here at the U. Once he has us back to that then #6 is coming home

Daytoncane

we'll find out how good the coaching staff really is next season.

Hurtt, Stoutland, and McGriff will be under the microscope. if their respective units can make that big improvement we're are hoping for, this team will be in the championship game next year. VAULT IT!!!!!

Aqua: So your first year at Miami you were a Cornerback?

Marley: Yeah, my first year we were playing cover 2. I'm the trail, the safety's got the deep man. They used me as a cornerback jumping the underneath route. If you saw me chasing the deep guy, he's not my responsibility [refrences a play in the FSU game]. It wasn't long before I was moved to LB because I loved to hit and they couldn't block me.

Aqua: So how did you end up with #2?

Marley: Charlie Pharms had it and told me I had be in on every tackle in the toilet bowl. First couple of plays were run plays, I came in from the CB position. I loved to hit. I hit Warren Sapp, I hit everyone in that game.

Aqua: Who made you a Linebacker?

Marley: My first day of practice Coach Soldinger moved me to LB, I thought I was a decent CB. Linebacker? So I go 7-on-7 and it's run, run, run all run. Oh, man I'm eating it up, they couldn't block me. I move up to 2nd string, they still couldn't block me! End of story.

86Cane

Aqua: So how intense were those practices?
-
Marley: There's no friends in practice, this is serious. It's a war, it's war. You better hold your position because there's a guy underneath you that might be just as good, or might be a little better next year. You don't walk on Greentree Practice field, you run. There's no standing still. We run, we tackle, we hit, we sweat. These no quitting on Greentree practice field, there's no quitters out there. Lion's, all Lion's in the Serengeti, we run like deer and hit like a freight trains.

Aqua: So where did this "Swagger" come from?
-
Marley: If you don't tell someone they'll never know. It's not that I'm the best player in the world. But when I'm on the football field you're not gonna stop me. You may block me once or twice, but I'm going to get to you. You don't lose games when you think like that.

I realized when I came back[from Jamaica after being injured his junior season] I played in the 94 Orange Bowl. I was telling Sapp "Let's go! Rastaman time!" I realized [in that game] that I could make every play. I know how to get to the ball. I can do that.

DeLand, Fla. - Stetson had three players score in double-figures yet could not generate enough offense to survive the Hurricanes that blew into the Edmunds Center Wednesday night. Miami (10-1) made its first appearance in DeLand since 1971 and went home with a 69-49 win over Stetson (2-6).

Freshman forward Ridge Graham (Stuart, Fla.) did everything he could to get Stetson back in the win column narrowly missing a double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds. Senior guards A.J. Smith (Cocoa, Fla.) and Brandon Williams (Miami, Fla.) added 11 points each.

Although the Hatters kept the game close throughout the first half, it seemed that each time they would hit a big shot, the Hurricanes would have an answer. With 8:12 remaining in the opening period Williams knocked down a three-pointer to get Stetson within four points at 20-16. Then, 18 seconds later, James Dews (Cincinnati, Ohio) buried a three to slow the momentum. After falling behind by 12, Mark Lohuis (Vero Beach, Fla.) hit a long ball with 1:47 on the clock. Miami's Dwayne Collins (Miami, Fla.) followed with a rim-shaking dunk and the visitors were back up by 11.

"I think in the first half we clicked really well", said Stetson head coach Derek Waugh. "Ridge was fantastic tonight and Brandon Williams played very well."

Collins led the Hurricanes with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Adrian Thomas (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) and Malcom Grant (Brooklyn, N.Y.) added 11 and nine points respectively.

In the second half it looked like Stetson might build momentum for a run when freshman Tyshawn Patterson (Orlando, Fla.) hit a 3-pointer at 15:15 and reduced the deficit to 10 points at 42-32. Once again, however, Miami answered a three with a three, this time by Thomas, and was off to the races.

Miami built its lead to 27 points (69-42) with 1:40 remaining before Stetson scored the final seven points of the game with a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws by Williams and a layup by Lohuis.

"A lot of credit goes to Miami. Defensively we could not contain them inside and offensively we missed too many jump shots", said Waugh. "Overall however, I think we were better tonight, we only turned the ball over eight times against an ACC Opponent. We'll take some positive things from this game and move forward."

As a team Miami shot 56.5% (26-for-46) from the field and 46.2% (6-for-13) from long range. After shooting 41.7% in the first half, Stetson dropped to 33.3% from the field for the game. The Hatters did shoot 76.9% (10-of-13) from the line compared to 55.0% (11-of-20) for the Hurricanes.

Stetson dropped its first home game in front of a season-high of 2,619 screaming, supportive Hatter fans (and a few Miami fans wearing Canespace T-shirts).

Daytoncane,

Go Canes!

86,

Can't say it enough. What you do is really appreciated. Enjoyed the Stetson recaps and all the hard work. I know it's not easy, but working hard and doing your best is the Cane way and you exemplify that. Thanks for all you do.

Over and out 'til tomorrow.

Go Canes!

Did everyone notice who Reggie Wayne burned on that TD?

Reggie "The Eraser" Nelson - a piece of garbage UiF Croc player

I remember how much hype that kid got from Croc fans, calling him "The Eraser"

Ed Reed in a wheelchair is better than him


Six

Old Skool - I tried to keep that crossing guard vest that the ACC made me wear, so I could autograph it and 86 could auction it off for money

They said, that's a negative ghost rider

Looks like they wanted to make the next group of media members on the sidelines of their championship game look like jackholes as well

Mahalo to everyone else that wished me a happy birthday as well

Talked to my parents, who were at that Stetson/Miami game on Wed. night .. said my mom actually kicked the basketball back onto the court a couple of times when it rolled over to her, they were sitting front row near mid court

Was funny to hear their description of the game, seeing how they are Stetson fans

It's all good! I just want people to go to UM games and events. When I show up at a UM game and I see all the good folks wearing Canespace it fills my heart with joy.

I'll tell U a story about two die hard Canes fans who we are LUCKY to have as Canespacers: Fran and his wife Jean.

Now Fran is no youngster and he and Jean have been married 49 years. That's right, 49 YEARS!!! So Fran has bad, I mean really bad knees, and told us at the game that he will need knee replacement surgery before too long.

He hobbles and wobbles along and stairs are really difficult for him. But give him this: He shows up. We have met him at football games, basketball games and he and Jean even came to the UCF tailgate just to TAILGATE with us! Now that's hard core.

Now some other Internet blogs sites and bloggers from the SS or the MH may look at the picture of Fran, Jean, Rashad and me from the Stetson basketball game and say something negative about us. We aren't young, or hip or cool.

Buy I could care less. I am SO proud of who we are at Canespace. We are "Hurricane Fan" personified.

We are old and young, male and female, white and black and hispanic. We live all over the Country and are scattered all across the globe at military bases and other sites.

I love this place and I wouldn't trade Fran and Jean for anybody else on this planet!

GO CANES, GO CANESPACE!!!

LOL..Love it. Great pics 86!!

Was a huge fan of Rohan Marley. I went to Palmetto & used to hang out with that cat long before his UM days. Used to cruise around in his white GMC typhoon back in the day. Also knew Kevin Ferguson better known as Kimbo Slice. I can't believe Kevin never wore a UM jersey & balled out. That dude is a physical specimen of a man. Markeith Cooper & I were pretty good friends too. He wound up playing at Auburn.

Man I'm getting old. I graduated in 1995 & it feels like yesteryear.

Dang... woke up this morning with a crappy eye infection..

On the day I'm suppose to be allowed to leave at 11:30 from work to go to Cheesecake factory for free lunch, then we get paid to go home after that.

BUT - If I leave now.. I not only don't get the 4 hours of paid time, I lose my lunch and I have to use 8 hours of my Paid Time Off.. So essentially it is a loss of 12 hours and lunch.

Sancocho,
It's your boy Latin. My boys and I finally got our tickets for the upcoming game in Orlando. Where are all the fellow Canespacers hanging out at? I read a while ago about a particlular parking lot(?) We'll be sitting in section 326. I believe thats on the Wisconsin side. Oh well. I'll be rocking my Canespace tee. Peace

1) Come on now! Those other blogs are like shanty towns. Canespace is like the high-rent district. As far as looks...child, please! Do you think people that make comments like that will be gracing the cover of GQ anytime soon. Plus you guys look just like normal people.

2) Amen. We're all proud to be spacers!

3) Same here. Plus, Fran and Jean are part of the family. We love those guys!

Go Canes! Go Canespace!
