1 time for ya mind.....

SwagGirl

SECOND!!!!!!!!

SinisterCane

second???

SinisterCane

dammit

welcane

Just got back from C. Fla. Spent a few days after Da Bowl to visit friends and family.
Still pissed about our preformance in the game, but oh well, the healing process has begun.
On to Hoops and Diamonds. (Sports, not jewelry)
As for football..You're right ... next year, or I mean this year (2010!) Go 'Canes!

mi@mic@ne

Last nites game just goes to show you how flawed the BSS is in rankings.

Even with the FSU and WVU game being a miss match.

86Cane

Hurriphin...nice work once again. U know what to do, right?

SwagGirl...good to see U around the blog. We missed U at the bowl game.

Leaving at 10 AM for The UA game in St. Pete. Stay warm!

UMike

I woke up to Snow this morning..the first time in my life I have seen snow falling....nice!!!!

1caneinatl

as i continue to watch other teams play games this bowl season it is clearer to me that we have talent, but that our talent isn't being developed and our team finds itself unprepared at critical moments.

i hate to say it-- because i am a big supporter of the current coaching regime. the problem is COACHING.

i'm getting shaky. . .

caniak aka  True Cane

Any recruiting news folks?

SwagGirl

SwagGirl...good to see U around the blog. We missed U at the bowl game.

86CANE - I really missed not being able to go but recently had a death in the family and was not able to miss anymore work. Looking forward to a better 2010. I will take what Randy is doing over what Meyer is doing any day. I am so sick of hearing from the Gator fans up here about Thug U I think they need to look in the mirror. Have a great time at the UA game!!!!

canechic

Raize the Videos are great, thanks for that!

Enjoy the game...thought I would never ever say this but I think I am a bit over football this year...going to check out the sale at Victoria's Secret today instead of watching football all day...it is downright cold in Orlando.

Aquaman

Cincy's DT's weigh about 260lbs.

Thank god they didn't play for the title..

86Cane

Have a great time at the UA game!!!!

Posted by: SwagGirl | January 02, 2010 at 09:24 AM

I may not go now. I woke with what feels like strep throat. OUCH! Not feeling so good. Debating going to the UA game or not. It's on ESPN LIVE so it's not like U can't see what's happening and OUR MAN Six will be there filming and interviewing so we have it covered.

I may need a day off?

86Cane

Aqua...that was some ish wasn't it? I am so sick of the BCS. Time to blow that silly thing up and start over?

raizecane

Raize the Videos are great, thanks for that!

86 I think it is all the rain and cold...I say take a day off...Lay in bed and watch some chick flicks with Mrs. 86 or may I recommend Fever Pitch it is a great movie!

canechic

Mrs. Jamericane it was great meeting you, you need to come with your hubby to more events...GO CANES!

CanesAddiction

86, I think you should take a day off too but skip the chic flicks. Lay in bed with Mrs. 86 and watch classic GUY flicks while she feeds you soup and grilled cheese.

CGNC

86 take care of yourself - strep can be serious

I turned off the Cincy game last night around 10 - couldn't take the Cryer Tebow lovefest

UMike

Im so jealous I wasnt at that bowl game...but you can bet I will at LEAST be at the GT game in Atlanta next year with the fam....cgnc...I woke up to snow this morning..first time in my life i ever saw snow fall lol

86Cane

Addiction, CC and CGNC...good advice from all. SOUP and grilled cheese sounds pretty damn good about now!

CGNC

LOL or skip the movies and soup and grilled cheese...purrrrrrrrrrrrr

aight - off to the gym to fight my way through the New year's resolution crowd

:-D Go Canes - block somebody!

CGNC

UMike - I love snowfall - it is so quiet and the air is so clean afterwards. BUT I am still headed back to Palm Beach County in a dew LOL...

solarcane

raize,
I really enjoyed see the gang in action thanks

canez1,
that pick was gangsta!

soup,
hope you are home resting, ask mm01 if health should come before everything else. Get better.
Last season was about as hard on my wife and I financially as I can remember, hopefully their will be enough budget to get to party at a home game or two this season.
I want to thank you again for offering your home, tickets, and transportation several times last year

Out to the sporting good store instead of the builders supply, thats a good sign!!

solarcane

Umike get CGNC to come up and build you a snow woman... it's something that kinda stays in your mind a long time

out

The Wizard

Are any potential Cane commits going to make the announcement during the UA game ? If so who ?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Caneinatl, were you shaky after the USF game??

Y'all are just comical. We have little talent in the senior class and even less depth. The juniors are a little better with talent and slightly better with depth. All our ballers are frosh and soph none of whom had the luxuryof redshirting.

These facts peaked out here and there throughout the season but became painfully clear against Wizzy. We're not big and strong enough and our upperclassmen aren't ballers or aren't deep.

If anything, these physical hard facts should leave no question about our staffs ability to make the most out of what they have.

Questions about Hurtt and Mcgriff are pretty legit but the rest is youth.

The physical difference was clear after the first few series. Mentally Wizzy was definitely more focused as well but as others have said Wizzy had been here last year and the players were very determined not to lose because of themselves.

All that aside, we're just not big, strong and deep enough yet. And Wizzy exploited all our weaknesses on both sides of the ball.

How long did it take Butch and those players??? Yeah.

moneysgirl

Raize thanks for putting up the vedio's. You were one grillin mofo on that day. I had no idea I was that lit until I saw it on tape.

Go CANES!!

The Wizard

Watching UA game, Easley looks real good. Considering Canes. What are our chances ? BG ? Anybody ?

JC

Boy, I know if worked in Philly for the phils and my wife and kids were living back in long island where they are diehard mets fans to add that the rigors of my job has me traveling constantly, would put a tremedous strain on my marriage.

I'm just sayin.....

moneycane not moneysgirl

Aquaman

Soup, not every college football player is broke. Plus there are plenty of struggling tattoo artists that work for cheap. Also it's free advertising for the artist.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Solar, what's been up dawg? I see things haven't changed. One loss and a bad game and the sky is falling. Lol

Happy Holidays to everyone.

 DATcane

Storm Johnson( a Cane commit) just got tackled by a linebacker committed to Wizzy.........go figure.

canechic

Pretty sloppy game!

UMike

solar...what would stay in my mind..the snowman or finally seeing my future wife CGNC in person lol

moneysgirl

Oh my gosh Raize! What did you do?! lol Those vid's were so funny! Of course Moneycane had spelling errors posted under my name. I can spell video I promise. 86 you should be on camera all the time, you're a natural! You might need a wider lens though, so all of your head can fit on the screen. (moneycane told me to say that)

solarcane

hi CaptO

yea it's never gonna change,we are either 13-0 world beaters or a 9-4 POS

Reality just visits Canespace, he isn't a local.

Health and prosperity to you my friend

solarcane

Umike


CG is about a cute and sweet as a girl could get, but when she's shoveling snow in her bra your mind just shorts out.

solarcane

Under Armour designs better uniform combos than Nike has ever come up with.
Sad when high school uniforms look three or four times better than ours do.

Canez1

Umike she will probably miss the wedding being fashionably late.....

U are better off to just move on my man!! LOL

Love U CG!!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

raizecane

Moneycane / Moneysgirl - Glad u enjoyed the videos. You were not the only one lit that day (ex - me taping a few seconds with lens cap on, lol).

I don't know if I mentioned it but for me.....the best part of the day was meeting all the great folks from Canespace and their families.

DZ8

Storm Johnson( a Cane commit) just got tackled by a linebacker committed to Wizzy.........go figure.

The Wizard

I hate the Gators !

JD74

i actually thought he was going to pick um there for a second. i share your hatred.

UMike

Are any of these kids even really considering Miami? I know we have a few commits playing, but are there any others we have a shot at?

JD74

i just don't get it. does no one want to come or r we just not recruiting these guys? it seems like none of the undecideds have um in their top 5. what wrong?

Brownsub

We weren't recruiting Easley at all don't be fooled that's one of the players who Randy wastalking about!! Using our cap as a decoy.

8th Man in the Box

Jamal Reid making the UA flashback hightlights

JD74

Randy was talking about what?

Michael

our big weekend for recruiting is probowl weekend. All the former players are in town and I believe we have 20 players coming in for a visit.

UMike

JD...a lot of kids can and will say they have a Miami offer but dont...being that the schools arent able to talk about it, kids can say they have offers from whoever they want and noone can stop them

8th Man in the Box

Did yall see Shane McD flash the U

CaneSniper

We will have a great team for the next two years but we better bring in a top class next year. We are quickly becoming the 3rd best team in Florida. Why guys are so quick to choose 6-6 FSU with a new coaching staff and cheating scandle hanging over them is beyond me.

Michael

You have to remember that Randy is a great closer when it comes to recruiting. Just give it a break

DZ8

Depth charts and playing time, the coaching situation being resolved is why FSU is having a good year recruiting.

Florida is still a top 5 program and I'm sure the coaches are letting them know that alot of their talent will be in the NFL next year.

We are getting the ones we are targeting. Give me a 3 star with heart as opposed to a 5 star with a sense of entitlement.

CaneSniper

Nice run by Storm Johnson, but he fumbled at the end. Corey Lemonier picked it up.

bg1906

Don't look for any surprises. Just the 2 we have in the game. Louis Nix is huge but he is gone to ND. Chandler we will see. Easley wasn't a surprise, he tried to commit to Gates during FNL but they said no then, so my guess is they finally accepted his commitment, so he stuck with his heart. Mcdermot has done well and is the only center on his team. Lemonier is also playing as is Storm Johnson who just fumbled.

8th Man in the Box

Well I was getting ready to say a Storm is coming, but then he fumbled, but Lemioner picked it up. Hopefully, we'll be picking him up soon.

JCane

JD:

I posted yesterday later in the day on the last blog regarding Shannon's comments about recruiting games that schools can't comment on per NCAA rules. He spoke of players that the U isn't even recruiting saying that the U is one that they're considering and putting a U hat out, just to look good, get other offers, etc. (could be Easley's situation, as he hasn't ever visited the U, although he has had contact with coaches), and Shannon also spoke of players saying that they'd be interested in the U but the U isn't giving them enough love/attention (when the player had been given lots of calls and attention but ignored the calls completely, and after a few months when supposedly wanting the U to become involved complaining.....ie possibly like Elam or Chandler, but I'm just guessing when it comes to specific players he might have been referring to).

Shannon may hurt himself with some recruits/services with these types of comments, although I'd hope it helps more than hurts with more of the types of recruits we'd really want given the fact that he's simply being honest, a rare trait among NCAA football coaches.

 Esteban

nice run minus the fumble.

lemonier is still on the radar right?

and the guy who caused the fumble #7 is the christian jones that we are after?

Michael

chandler is a cane.. harris from nw is a louisville commit... didnt make grades for miami

1caneinatl

@ captain optimist--

thanks for the wake up call. you're right. i didn't feel that way after the usf game. i think you're right about the lack of strength of on our team. you're points about depth and where the talent is. what troubles me though is that our players don't seem to be getting better they are at best the same and in many cases worse. more troubling is the lack of preparation that i see in our players. the defense is constantly out of position. all year receivers have run free through our secondary. whip, continuing to call deep routes (rather than short and intermediate routes) when our line couldn't protect jacory. our team looked flat and uninspired (despite the opening kick-off return against wisky). clearly there were times during the year when it appeared that we were operating on all cylinders; but there were also other times when we looked like anything but hurricanes. this kind of inconsistency i attribute to poor coaching and preparation.

JCane

I still don't see C. Jones likely coming our way, although it would be nice. I can't imagine him not heading to FSU given the pressure and the roots.

JD74

thanks for clarifying

 Esteban

football players from NY? i'll pass unless they are from upstate - upstate produces some ballers.

and a quick "i told ya so" on FSU beating WVU.

bg1906

JC.

It won't hurt. He is being honest because so many people bytch about why didn't we get this guy or that guy and he's tired of it and the recruiting services making the schools look bad. He's saying what he's allowed to say about the process without breaking NCAA rules.

bg1906

Kids that we actually recruit that want to be Canes will be Canes. That is all we should worry about. Forgot to mention Kadron Boone who I feel will decomit from Texas Tech. He's also in this game and is Devin Hester's cousin. We may have a legit shot at him

 Esteban

i agree with bg, it won't hurt when it comes to guys that really want to come here. might just lead to less guys BSing that we are after them cause they'll be recognized as fakes.

bg1906

Micheal.

Super Bowl weekend will be big but not quite as big as you said. Will not be 20 visitors. Hahahaha

Good points, but you also have to remember that the bulk of our players are sophmores. I think many of the players did show some improvement, however with some of the injuries, I think we it wasn't what we were hoping for. Strenght is a problem, there may be some coaches that need to go. But most importantly we need to make sure we the OL, and the entire D gets the attention it needs. If we can keep opponents under 17 pts a game and protect Jacory we'll be hard to stop.

I think the O will improve under Whipple as the he'll have a chance to evaluate himself and the players will be able to build upon what was learned this year.

Did we look lost at times? yes. Is there room for improvement? yes Put look at the positives, we didn't lose back to back games, we never quit, and we're starting to look like a real football team again.

86Cane

Our man Six called. Says ESPN is giving all of the local media a tough time about filiming the game? He's been on TV several times alraedy. Look for the WHITE UM gear on the sideline.

Great half time performance BTW. Love that stuff. Does he know that his underwear is showing on national TV? What? He wants it that way? Oh my! LOL

lol...atleast his whities were clean.

bg1906

Michael.

Chandler I do believe before its all over may make it into this class but some issues there that will have to be resolved for this to happen. Harris is somewhat test score but also he wants a chance to play immediately and that is not available for WR at UM. I will even go as far to say I would not be surprised 1 bit to see Davon Johnson transfer. That is not a prediction, but I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised.

mi@mic@ne

I do not understand what everyone is so worried about. We were about 3 plays away from going to the bcs with a bunch of sophs. I JH is accurate in the first half of the Wisky game we get another 10 to 14 points and then on the last drive we do not connect with the open receivers.
JH is banged up. And since we set the run up with the pass then how are we going to fair if we are not passing well? We are never going to be a one receiver team who plays slow and methodical. Our pro style is dependent upon the success of the qb... even in the nfl the qb is what makes the difference between a play off team and a loser.
We have all of our playas coming back and the ones that are leaving dont mean much. The turds are losing half their team... and i know that the acc qb situation is going to be much different next yr as well cause we played a lot of teams with senior qbs. We dont need to worry about Spiller either.
Since we got a lot of good people filling positions then we can recruit what we want now. Lets leave the worrying if we need to ... in the end of next yr.

8th Man in the Box

I had the same thoughts about Davon, as well as Chamber. The only thing is they've both redshirted therefore they'll have to make the decision to drop a division.

bg1906

Disappointed they haven't talked about Brandon Harris who is an All American who also played in this game and did well.

8th Man in the Box

is that six with the orange U shirt and white hat?

Are you really? U know we don't get much love!

bg1906

Nix is a big boy. Disappointed we lost him. He has motor issues but if you can get him to go 100 mph everytime...wow.

8th Man in the Box

Is Dunkly a turd lean?

Lets leave the worrying if we need to ... in the end of next yr.

Posted by: mi@mic@ne | January 02, 2010 at 12:37 PM

But worrying is so much fun and gives U something to do. Remember this:

Worry is like a rocking chair. It keeps U busy, but gets U nowhere.

Canez1

Not sure what all the recruiting whining is about.

This class has filled some major holes for us especially on the OL.

The LB, RB and DB class as well really looks good.

We need to close out with a few stud DL and I will put this class up with anyone.

FSU has a nice class as well and have picked up a couple good ones late. They always recruit well though no matter what. No big surprises there.

Recruiting is the least of our worries.

The kids that want to be here and have the heart and character that we are looking for will be in this class.

So when this one goes there and that one doesn't come here don't worry about all that shyte.

For the most part we get the ones we target that want to come. That is all you can hope for in this recruiting game.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

bg1906

8th man.

This IS the game we usually get love and honestly from a recruiting stand point we have dominated this game. Its the Army game where get no love, but that is Tom Lemming's game so you can imagine why.

86Cane

is that six with the orange U shirt and white hat?

Posted by: 8th Man in the Box | January 02, 2010 at 12:42 PM

YES

8th Man in the Box

BG,

I agree, but they always cream over the hot teams. We're not that yet...emphasis on yet! Had we won the other night, we may have been more of a story.

Aquaman

What do you guys think of Montana's kid?

Canez1

Poor Nick Montana!!

Can you say expectations??

GO CANEZ!!!!!

JD74

not like his daddy, that's for sure.

seems like all his passes are sailing.

mi@mic@ne

rite now Montana is too stiff... hes got a strong arm... i dont know about his football intelligence cause i aint seen him play.

Canez1

Dunkley a turd....

What a surprise.

GO CANEZ!!!!!

JD74

another FU commit, dunkley

bg1906

Dunkley worse kept silent commit of all time.

Canez1

BG LMAO!!!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

8th Man in the Box

listening to them jock UF just made me throw up in my mouth.

bg1906

Miamicane.

I disagree with young Montana's arm strength. It is average.

bg1906

Also forgot to mention that Tavadis Glenn is also in this game.

CaneSniper

I'm not worried about next year. It's 2013 that I'm worried about. When all the top atheletes from Miami this year are seniors playing for Florida and Florida St. And we play both of them that year. We better have a great class next season, but it seems like every year we're on here talking about how loaded South Florida will be next season. So far it's been great for the Gators and Noles.

mi@mic@ne

Posted by: bg1906 | January 02, 2010 at 12:59 PM

Like i say i aint seen him play but that thirty yard dart was pretty hard.
