solar - ya, I know .. I was about to go crazy, so, that's my final concrete offering

I added some names if you didn't notice, I didn't think they could go without, esp. considering the era

I've never felt so many invisible lightning bolts from people in the news room when I'm in there, chillin and watching 3 different games on the Sony Bravia 60 inchers

But hey, like I tell them - I'm like a fireman, when it's time to work, I get right on it without hesitation .... but also, there's a lot of downtime that I can't control. Don't hate the playa, hate the game

I'm considered basically the best at what I do up at the station - I can't help that I'm good and it comes easy to me

It's not my fault they chose to be field reporters that have to go out and do any story or producers, that have to sit at their keyboard for 8 hours a day and type

So when they see me playing stickball with a wiffle ball bat and a hard tape ball that is smaller than a golf ball, in one of the studios - ya, be jealous ... and do me a favor, crawl up one of the 24 foot ladders and go find that little tape ball in the lighting grid when I launch the pitcher's weak azz fastball into orbit


We have a guy up at the station, who I have nicknamed "King Raccoon", b/c that dude eats everything and can smell food from a mile away

Every Sunday night, the cleaning crew takes everything out of the fridges and throws it away

So Sunday nights are like a freakin all-you-can-eat buffet for King Raccoon. I went into the break room one time to get some food I was going to take home and King Raccoon was sitting there at one of the tables with it, along with at least 5 other Tupperware/Gladware/Chinese boxes of food and was chowing down on all of them

I was like, dude, what are you doing? He just said, they throw the food out anyway, everyone knows it, so if they don't come get their food before they throw it out it just goes into the trash ... I'm hungry, so I eat it. I told him I was coming to get my food to take home, he told me he already ate it and I was too late

Freakin King Raccoon


Here's King Raccoon in action, interviewing some lady



King Raccoon, LMAO!!


Here's a question ...

Who do you blame for this kind of behavior?

"Wizards Coach Flip Saunders benched starting forward Andray Blatche after he played just 7 minutes 31 seconds. Saunders said he pulled Blatche initially to discuss the player not getting back on defense but that Blatche refused to listen to the coaching staff.

Saunders said his assistants attempted to talk to Blatche about the situation multiple times but that Blatche's response was he "just didn't want to play."

"I'm disappointed. I'm the most disappointed I've ever been in 15 years with a player," Saunders said.

Blatche said that he "just didn't want to play". Wow. What a lazy piece of garbage.


i'm watching the canes-nebraska game from 02...we were an unstoppable force...and no one new what the f to do to stop us!!
hope the intensity is re-established this coming year!!!


from last blob

Does anybody transfer from Miami to a school ranked above the U?
Capt O seems correct that those that transfer can't take the pressure of big time football.

McNeil SMU
Marve Purdue
Freeman Baylor
Cook Rice
A Brown Kansas State
C Smith Memphis


Blatche said that he "just didn't want to play". Wow. What a lazy piece of garbage.

this is what happens when you play for money, and not the love of the sport.

losing teams are filled with guys like this.

Looking forward to seeing you there...

Exact Location to be determined.

So far...
Spence is a Beast

Bobby Bad Boy:



He's no Chef, but he is a Cook:



Wow; 86... just catching up with ALL articles... as usual, CaneSpace ROCKS! This it it! Let's GO CaneSpacers...

Keep the dice rolliiiing..... on CaneSpace!

I always have been a fan of this one blog and always will! Thanks 86.


QB Robert Marve: Marve is a junior who transferred from Miami, where he was a starter in 2008. If he lives up to billing, the Boilermakers have a chance to be excellent on offense. He's a rare talent at this school.

They have no idea how rare


I always have been a fan of this one blog and always will! Thanks 86.

I'm thinking about NOT going.

Solar...COLD weather is one reason why northern schools have later start dates and Spring Game dates. That is obvious.


maybe so soup

This is a good one!

Spring  is here  ...  August in 13 weeks

any way you read it, they're still both good men and very very good Coaches .

Is it the new coaching or have they mature ?

Did you guys see the story about Meyer ripping the Orlando Sentinel beat reporter for reporting the Deonte Thompson quote? It's gonna be at the front of the line on talk radio tomorrow!

Meyer threatened to pull Fowler's credential, then he said if Thompson was his kid, they'd be "going at it" right now! The guy isn't losing it, he's lost it!

Meanwhile Randy is getting the run around from UM with regards to his contract and just shrugs his shoulders.

I don't care what you guys think of Randy Shannon, I like the guy. He has dealt with so much more adversity than any of us can imagine, and as a result he doesn't sweat the small stuff. Couple that with the fact that Shannon was a key member of two of the greatest undefeated teams in the history of college football, and he really doesn't have anything to prove. Been there, done that!

P.S. Anyone look at our defense this off-season? Probably one of the "sickest" lines in the country! I think Randy knows a thing or three about how to make that unit tick! The guy is building this thing to last.

Pay the man for God's sake!

Go 'canes!

orange 'n green in the vein

On one side of the ball, the trenches will be taken care of at least this year.

Although this is Sports related, I'm breaking every rule in the book, cept religion, but wait... some here think football is a religion...

The significance of this goes allot deeper then just The University of South Carolina... B's and G's.

South Carolina pols call on black recruits to boycott Gamecocks
By Matt Hinton

Lingering racial tensions have made their mark on South Carolina sports for years, notably in the NCAA ban on all postseason games in the state in response to the Confederate flag that flies on statehouse grounds, occasionally exercised for conference tournaments as well. The latest protest, though, is coming from within the state's own borders, by members of the legislature -- including a former South Carolina player -- who have begun encouraging black recruits to renege on their commitment to the Gamecocks in opposition to the pending exit of the only black member of the university's board of trustees:

State Rep. David Weeks, chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he doesn't think there are enough votes in the Legislature to get lawyer Leah B. Moody appointed to a full term on the 22-member board next month. She is the board's only black member and is finishing the term of a trustee who resigned before pleading guilty to bank fraud.

"We are asking young athletes to be aware … there are folks in this state who say it's fine to play ball but not be on the governing board," Weeks said.

He and several other lawmakers, including former Gamecocks lineman Anton Gunn, a black Democrat from Columbia, said members of the black community were calling recruits and their families and asking them to rethink playing for the school. [...]
Lawmakers would not say how many recruits had been called or whether any were reconsidering their commitments. They also would not identify the callers.

Taking the fight to the football team seems like the last, desperate blow in an ongoing fight over the makeup of the board, which significantly underrepresents South Carolina's black population even with one member. About 11 percent of the university's student body is black, according to South Carolina's largest newspaper, The (Columbia) State, as opposed to about 28.5 percent of the state's....

Hummmmm, I love pop corn,.. This might be a 2 bagger

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

C5C- You got that right. Thats going to be an interesting story to follow.

By the way did 2 bagger mean popcorn or were you referring to most of the women in South Carolina? HA

Cat 5 Cane

...Don't get me started... Lov them girls!

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

Just messin` with ya


Pensacola to Tallahassee. See U this PM...


Are there any players there that we might want to steal?

I mean, if they drop that schollie, they will end up in JUCO for sure....

And the NCAA will not wink and say that it's okay for them to bail on the scholarship, right?

Cat 5 Cane

86... you're not going ?


Why is it that every kid we recruit at DB projects as a safety?


Posted by: Six | March 24, 2010 at 06:04 PM

I almost forgot how good those games were between StL and TB. And how much I enjoyed Dunn and Alstott.




Where are we seeing the new recruit projected as a safety? I think he is coming in at CB and S will come locally.

Also, with the Hyde article and sports talk radio filled with chatter about Shannon this morning, I hope this puts some heat on the university. I actually think that a deal will be reached by the April 15, as they will finalize the details after spring practice closes


that PR genius up there in the 352 really makes me respect shannon. id rather my coach be indifferent and perceived as cold than be a freak of nature.

Each coach has their own level of media association (though savvy is reserved for the select few, i.e. mack brown), but wow some really know how to lose a battle. ESPN is all over this, and none of them are saying anything good.

In other news, cant wait to see that new, amped up D-line on sat... Even if it is vanilla in flavor, bailey ripping through an o-line always elicits cheers.


This is what I don't understand about our fanbase. Remember the part in the U movie where Highsmith said that they'd be building statues and monuments for all their accomplishments if that happened at Alabama or Texas.

Then why would you think the school would handle the coaches contract and differently than what's going on now.

Did UM get a refund when Shannon made a million dollars and had the worst record in 30 years?

I guess it's a Canes thang and most of our fan even don't understand.

After missing last season with a broken jaw, defensive end Adewale Ojomo has improved this spring...

I'm sure Ojee has allot of built up anger, after sitting on the bench for a year... gritting his teeth! Weighing somewhere between 250 and 262 is allot of beef to control.

2009, we had 22 sacks with Bailey having 7, Robinson had 4, Spence and Wesley had 3, Harris, Holmes, McCarthy, Vernon and Moncur each had 1.

If Bailey is playing middle line, look for double team on Bailey and Mike to get allot more team sacks in 2010... Guessing 30 team sacks



I thought I saw it on ESPN's site, but I just rechecked it says nothing about him being projected as a safety. I guess I'm making sh*t up or seeing things this am.



Didn't you hear. No arrests and great academics. Dude deserves the world!

He should be making Saban $$$$$, no.

Too many peeps swingin from RS's sack.

Show us the money RS by putting it up on the field and UM will show you the money you deserve.

Until then Shut it.



Six - some well placed chili peppers will take care of King Raccoon....LOL!!!!


South Carolina having racial tensions?

this is shocking to me.
