Hey!

Six

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

Six

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!!

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.

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.

Is it the new coaching or have they mature ?

Sarasota 'cane

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!

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....

shwarma

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

reggaebob

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.

Aquaman

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.

Cat 5 Cane

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



Aquaman

Shwarma,

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.

Watch the video, he practically wet himself backing down: "hey that's fine, I'll play by rules (come back Urban, come back)"

When someone walks toward you with their finger in your face and you back down like a pissing puppy, like Fowler did, you deserve to lose your man card...permanently. He let Urban bully him.

In the real world, outside his home field, in the street, if Urban does that to someone that has something between their legs, and ... you know what happens.

Like it or not Larry Coker has done something that shannon has not done... He won a national championship, should have been two. He won three or four conference titles, something that Shannon has not done. I do however believe that Randy should be granted a contract extension, he has improved this team every year since he took over the program. Now Coker has done something else that Shannon has not, he totally destroyed this team. Shannon has been learning on the job, he has made improvements, he is not where we want him to be, but the university needs to step up. Give the man an extension (with low buy out), and pay the man.

So, you're telling me you're not supposed to write what was said by a player for everyone to hear?

It's not like Deonte Thompson made it up

I .. would .. LOVE .. for Myth to come walking toward me with his finger extended, acting like he's scolding me. I might ask him to do it again while I pull out my cell phone camera to record it, laughing all the way and saying "ok, Take 2 .. ready, Go" .. "ok, ok Urbie, let's try that again but over here b/c the light is much better and really brings out the rodent features in your face - ready, Go"

Wonder how they'll spin this one up in Croc land

For any Croc fan that says the reporter deserved it, that just basically shows their reading comprehension skills and complete unabashed blindness to slurping everything Urban and Tebow

If they read the entire quote that Deonte said, he was just saying that Brantley is more of a drop-back classic QB and Tebow was more of a running QB .... and what part of that isn't entirely true?

If it isn't true, then why do they have Brantley primarily working from under center this entire spring and changing their offense around, while Tebow took a total of I'm guessing 7 snaps his entire career at UiF from under center

Can that scene from Armageddon where the huge meteors come shooting from the sky and destroying New York City, happen in Gainesville any time soon? Need to rid the earth of some idiocy big guy in the sky, can ya help a brother out? Send some space pebbles down in a fiery glory?

While I agree with you in theory and, you're probably right, the reporter is wimpified.
There may be a couple of extenuating circumstances.

One: you're dealing with Mr. "My Chest Hurts, My Head Hurts, Football is too stressful. My family misses me. I'm gonna quit no I'm gonna take time off. Yeah that's it. My doctors say I should take time off."

Now assuming that's true. You give Urbie a beat down. He has a heart attack or quits coaching. All of a sudden you are Salman Rushdie in the state. There would be a price on your head, bricks through your windows, threats to your family and you wouldn't be able to go anywhere without armed guards and checking for bombs underneath your car first.

Ever want to stand hear an open window again? Forget it. You could have an easier life drawing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

Two: Six could probably answer this. I don't know if Urbie has a goon squad with him. For all I know, just out of frame are two off duty troopers. Each about 6'6" 320. So it's real easy for Urbie to get in your face cuz he knows if you do anything ... you'll be stopped, pummeled, and hogtied in a nanosecond.

are Orlando Magic fans idiots?

anointing Dwight Howard as "Superman" is a direct insult at Shaq. at least Shaq started to develop a reverse hook at this point of his career compared to Howard. he was a better passer and was way more aggressive than Howard is now.

he'll never be able to take over a game the way Shaq did. he just doesn't have that mentality.

Or suggesting that a reward for winning a title is that people will "jump on" your sack.

I mean, that might be why the Canes lost to VT last year. Too many people were jumping on his sack, so that Randy started sounding like Jacory.

Painful reward.

The 813/727 is going crazy with Gator fans defending the way Oscar treated Jeremy. All day I asked for 1 factual reason to defend what he did and all I got was blah blah blah.

Someone needs to make sure Oscar cant get his hands on a weapon or bad things might happen. The kat is losing it.

people "jumping on the bandwagon" has nothing to do with why we lost to Vtech.

people were on the bandwagon after we beat FSU, but it didn't seem to affect us when we smashed Gtech.

the reason why we lost that game is because we got outplayed and outcoached. the players might've had their heads geeked up a little too much, but that's not an excuse as to why we got physically manhandled during that game.

Old Skool is completely correct in the whole Urbie Myth scenario

The best thing that Fowler did, was instigate Urbie by saying what he said in the whole situation out there and it was all caught on tape... it made Urbie look like a complete ass to the world

Turn on any legitimate sports radio or television and see just how many people are defending Urbie

I'm just wondering how soon it will be before Fowler receives death threats via email or phone calls

You remember when that dumbass Croc player broke into the impound to break out his girlfriend's car at 3am or 4am or whatever - b/c he couldn't wait until 6am or 7am, like normal people, to get the car out?

Ya, the owner of the impound said it was all a big misunderstanding, said he wouldn't press any charges - the guy was a huge Croc fan

Even after all of that, the guy received death threats ... and that was for some scrub player

This is their cult leader, so you know all those jackholes are up in arms over anything bad that might be perceived about him or their lord and savior former QB who could do possibly no wrong on this earth

testicular gymnastic practices....

yup it's the off season


soup riding to work I was thinking about our conversation where you explained Northern ACC schools have a later spring game date because it might still be be cold...
That logic got me thinking
What do those same schools do during home games in Nov and December then??? lol

For those who haven't heard the video, here's a transcript:


Meyer felt the comment was taken out of context and let Fowler know on Wednesday by threatening to take away the newspaper's credentials.

"You'll be out of practice. ... you understand that? ... if you do that again," Meyer said as he pointed at Fowler. "I told you (the media) five years ago: Don't mess with our players. Don't do it. You did it.

"You do it one more time and the Orlando Sentinel's not welcome here ever again. Is that clear? It's yes or no."

Fowler offered this defense: "Urban, come on. Don't make any threats. That's fine. I'll play by the rules. ... I'll play by the rules, but all I was doing is quoting the guy. I don't think I was the only one."

Meyer response: "You're a bad guy, man. You're a bad guy."

As Meyer started to walk away, Fowler said, "Thanks, Urban. I appreciate that."

Meyer turned around and then pointed at Fowler, and said: "If it was my son, we'd be going at it right now."

Shannon is so much stronger than Meyer in that regard that it is not even funny.

From the "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" file, Shannon has simply been through more trials in life than Meyer.

If I was a betting man, I would guess that Meyer's mom used to cut the crust off of his PB&J sandwiches BEFORE she toasted them for him and his friends. Meanwhile Shannon probably had to sneak home from the market with the generic PB&J (That he paid for himself) in order to avoid being robbed.

My point is this: If Shannon fails (and he won't!), REAL life goes on! The guy doesn't sweat the small stuff because he's already walked through so much adversity.

That in and of itself is no reason to keep Shannon. The reason UM should keep Shannon is for improving the program every year since he got there. That's it! Shannon would get "bounced" 2 years before any white coach would if he was not producing. Lucky for us he is producing, and teaching, and growing these kids into men on and off the field.

The funny thing is, Urbie can say whatever he wants about the Orlando Sentinel not being welcome or whatever - but technically, he can't do that

It's a public university

Case closed


"Dont mess with our players"

Ya, Urbie, don't worry. The media won't mess with your players ... they'll just wait for the conitnuous line of your players heading to get their mugshots, and talk to them then

I'd love to see this kid on our roster in 2011! He needs UM as much as UM could use him! Let's start a campaign. How about we find him on Facebook and "invite" him down for an interview with Randy! He He
