(Note - this response was written just as new blog became available and hope it doesn't get deleted..haha)

Ok....I wasn't going to bring it up but since 86 wrote this blog, I might as well put my input in. Let me start off by saying......"for the love of god people". It's not like we lost a loved one. We simply had a few people decide not to blog anymore so lets not act like the world is coming to an end. The sun did rise and we moved on, right???.

Now I have to say that i did enjoy most of the comments that those who are no longer with us had written and I even had the pleasure of meeting JSQ on several occasions. They did bring great info to the table but the one thing I have noticed since they stopped blogging is all of the new names that have popped up and left comments. Am I the only one that noticed this?? I am not sure why that is but I have a theory. It seems that if Truth or Mary made a simple comment like "It's nice outside", there would be 50 responses to that comment. But if you had someone who doesn't post often bring something informative to the blog, they would hardly (if at all) get someone to respond thus feeling left out. So if you feel left out, why bother? Now granted I know the folks who are now missing were popular and well deserved but it's nice to see new names contribute to the blog. Especially those who always read what we say but never felt compelled to leave a comment until now.

This blog will continue to move forward, we will continue to read it and as long as Soup's head doesn't get in the way, you shall see the sun rise.

Peace and Go Canes.

(Now back to your regularly scheduled program)

Raize, that's an interesting take on it. I think most of the new posters were responding to the last blob's topic. If they continue to post we'll know more.

Nothing can bring back the focus and bitter hatred then the mention of anything Gator related

3 game sweep and a nice bench clearing brawl. 1st pitch of the 1st game needs to be thrown at the azz of the batter.

Screw the Gators

RAIZE...I AGREE AND THAT IS THE LAST COMMENT ON THE SUBJECT.

EVERYONE HAD A WHOLE DAY TO COMMENT. IT'S DONE, IT'S OVER.

NOW WE ALL MOVE ON...

going back to the baseball debate lemme say this. Not tutting my horn just for some perspective. I lettered in 4 sports in high-school, Football, B-Ball, Wrestling, and that organized activity Baseball. and played D-III football.
Baseball is sooo boring to play and watch. Lets say you play outfield, you might get 1-4 balls hit your way in 9 innings and 3-4 at bats a game. So for the majority of the game you are standing with thumb up your nose or sitting on the bench with a thumb up your _______.

Baseball is an individual game with teammates. Football is the ultimate team sport.

Old Skool

What you can do and can't is a matter of skills and body type, genes, training and desire.

I refer to this quote all the time. Joe Frazier was once asked - something to the effect of - who was the bravest man he knew.

His answer: Mark Spitz.

A guy who goes toe to toe with Ali, thinks Mark Spitz is brave. Why? Frazier couldn't swim.

When he tried it one time for superstars competition, he quit halfway through and said. "It was like I was throwin' punches at the water and the water kept hitting back."

Haha, that's a great analogy but I don't think Spitz would agree about the bravery part. Willingly take a chance on your brain being damaged is pretty high up the bravery scale, not quite up there with skyscraper builders but it's up there.

Sebastian(2001U G.O.A.T.)

Somebody brought up names before. Heres a few I loved over the years

Majestic Mapp
Scientific Mapp(im not sure if I spelled them right, but I loved those names)

My favorite college name played for Nebraska back in the day(70's I think) was

I.M. Hipp

Old Skool

No doubt Spitz would probably disagree, but to Frazier, Spitz was taking a chance on drowning.

Pretty shallow to blame injuries on the 09 woes. EVERY TEAM deals with injuries. It's not like UM has to deal with it and nobody else does. The top teams have guys that can step in and get the job done when it's required. Dah U doesn't or hasn't lately. That falls on the coaches shoulders. Saying that 11-1 was realistic with the injuries is big time short sighted. IMO

Posted by: This U | March 04, 2010 at 04:43 PM

There's a big difference between other programs having injuries that have a balanced roster of upper classmen. Randy cleaned house when he stepped in. We were well below the 85 scholly limit. We had 53 true sophomores and freshmen on this roster last year. When a sophomore goes down and you have to put in a true freshman in is harder than having a Senior injured who's being replaced by Junior or Sophmore.

You can say injuries didn't hurt us all you want to but they did. If our LB's don't stay healthy this year we're hurtin because of depth.

Having a true 2 deep roster will help us this year. That's why Randy will play 145 downs this year aat the spring game. He couldn't do that before because we didn't have a 2 deep.


Posted by: FightingIbis | March 04, 2010 at 06:39 PM

j.w.

I remember watching Frasier try to swim on the Superstars. I was just a kid, and it was a little scary back then, but now it's hysterical. "Why didn't you tell anyone you couldn't swim, Joe?" "I thought I would just figure it out."

solarcane

sebas yea I.M Hipp

He was a walk on at Nebraska then had some 200yds games.

He used to "Hippnotize" opponents..< the press not me

FightingIbis

86,

I love the space. Hell you got me a ticket on here to go to a bowl game when I didn't have a job over the holidays. I don't even log out of canespace on my computer it's always on.

From what I gather most of us are here because it is a no holds barred Canes site who can't stand some of the BS that goes on around other sites. Invited Guest or not Manny or any other person invited on here needs to know they better back it up and also need to know not everybody is going to agree with that person just like we don't all agree on everything.

I completely repect every poster on here because they have a difference of opinion. Everybody needs to just chillax not take everything so personal. If you can't stand the heat then this isn't the place for you.

Much love everybody! Let's all kiss a make up!

solarcane

fightni,
I agree about the depth being a major deal.
I was thinking about Randy saying they have to get tougher.

The defensive players saying practice is D out to blast the O every down and vice versa.
I don't think Randy had the luxury of guys getting nicked up at practice till this year.
Now he can push them like the old time practices.

I'm tired
Have been reading all and hopefully we can move on and get beyond this dry hump. because we are all get sore about now.

Bamb,Bamb,Bamb!! as the headboard hits the wall.

Randy and Mike... love what you've brought and sorry for your personal problems... Wish both of you well... It's a tough road.

T and Jello... both of you bring life to the Space... I wish things were different, but maybe someday they will be... You are missed.

Calvin, quit horsing around... come on back!

16...If Dan wants to out himself he can that on his own blog. Not here.

16 grams

he did on his own live chat. http://www.miamiherald.com/qna/forum/54/67848.html

Back to FB. as mentioned above now with the depth along the O and D line can only help. Still not convinced of the depth at LB. that will have to be more wait and see.

Daytoncane

football is a very tough sport, but it is not the hardest sport.

basketball is way harder than football in terms of skill. anybody here on canespace can catch a pass. but i doubt everybody could dribble a ball and run at the same time (and look coordinated doing it). and don't get me started on how long it takes to develop a consistent jumper. and basketball players are generally more athletic anyway.

a RBs job is easy, just pick a hole and run through it (that's what she said). the footwork and ball handling of a PG is so important and difficult, especially when you have a longer defender guarding you.

and as far as physicality, people really underestimate how strong and powerful these guys are. if you've ever had to chase a guy off a screen you know how physcial it can get. Sherron Collins is just as big or bigger than everyone close to his size on our football team. same with Chris Wright from Georgetown. Ty Lawson was a muscular dude too.

Wrestling and boxing are harder as well.

LooL- RB easy_ wow. it takes Vision, durability, athleticism, (#1 rule for a RB, Never stop your feet). can a 3rd baseman or even a point guard stop and start on a dime?

SOUP

Herbal Minded...all sports take skill and talent. Let it go.

Tell me about the LB position at UM. What FRESHMEN do U think has a shot at PT or starting in 2010?

FightingIbis

RB easy? LOL! Yeah because everybody can do it.

Ibis...I couldn't take a swing at the softball you put up. Wouldn't be prudent.

But how do U see the UM RB situation working out?

CaneRock

Dayton, yeah, basketball ain't no joke either. I'm helping coach my boys basketball team, and I thought since they had fairly good success in football, that it would translate to football...MAN WAS I WRONG! Like you said, footwork,ballhandling, and shooting are the main fundamentals to get down when they're young. So yeah, basketball exposes a lot of athletic flaws that players didn't think they had...

16 grams

I'm trying Soup. But i'm such a die hard football junkie its irks me when people compare football Athletes to Baseball players... OKay thats it no more bashing baseball..

as for the LB unit. I can't count on the freshman MLB Green. The big question is will Buchanon be healthy? and can CJ Holton make an impact. if they do than we still only have 4 quality LB's.

So we might see more nickel sets with spence mcarthy and the 3 corners. DVD, Harris, Mcgee or Hill.

Dare i say we will miss A. Brown. Only on special teams. So Athletic that kid is but must be dumb as a doornail. His future is at a rush LB in a 3-4 scheme.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Correction: I thought since they had fairly good success in football, that it would translate to BASKETBALL...

Six I know there are truly some boring football....I like to nap to baseball because it is relaxing! I watch pretty much everything but Nascar, Golf and table tennis!
