And Windy posted some BS team of NCAA cheats as being the champs from '04 on the last blog.

THERE IS NO CHAMPION FROM '04! (Unless you're me and thought Auburn was the best team all year then with 4 1st round picks all along.)

Thanks bg! Very happy to have these and the covers!

Played my homeboy in 3 games this evening. He is a HUGE Gator fan, and I gladly kicked his azz up and down the field in their house first then in our house. J12ed him to death!

Then I played him as Baylor (used #10 Griffin to #1 Kendall Wright connection) and he was Iowa. Kicked his azz there, too.

I am REALLY diggin' this game. My mouth drops every time those holes open in the running game. AI for that is much improved. Berry all day, baby!

See you online...

Be sure to let us know the next time you come on...I was planning on listening but was called in to a last minute meeting that went well into the evening.

Interesting about how it works in the media..ie, being told to talk nothing but Steinbrenner for a relatively long period of time. While my heart goes out to his family and loved ones, and having lost my father in the last couple of years, I know the pain, it's still interesting the almost 100% positive spin put out by the media. Let's face it, the guy was extremely controversial and did go off the rails more than once.

I don't want to speak ill of the dead, but having noticed that basically it's been wall-to-wall Steinbrenner on ESPN, it seems like they could get just a little balance in there. If somebody wasn't familiar with his history, they would think this guy was right up there with Mother Teresa. I'm not saying that anything negative should be necessarily be brought up, but if they're going to go over his passing, again and again, ad nauseam 24-7, then be a little more balanced. Otherwise, mention his passing every few minutes or so, discuss the positive aspects, and leave it at that.

I guess it's that cable/sports 24 hour news cycle - go to fill it with the same blather over and over again.

That's why your input and perspective is so refreshing. Thanks for keeping us in the loop.

I'm not blaming him as such. I'm saying the players he recruited and offered, especially towards the end, were in no way shape or form Hurricanes.

And when those are the bulk of your upperclassmen and ALL your playmakers are true frosh or sophs, with one or two exceptions, it makes a big, big difference with intensity and performance and of course leadership.

Javarriss and Sharpton, for example, would not be able to see the field by the 6th game of this upcoming season. And the guys who would keep them on the bench are frosh and soph, and maybe a converted RB, although that might be a toss-up.

I'm not sure Cooper will see the field. My homey Canez1 says "bank on it" but I'm not so sure when you have Lamar Miller and Mike James as the 2nd and 3rd options.

And this is just the beginning.

Hell, I don't think those guys would even be recruited.

I don't know Windy, I hope this team is more like the team that lost their first game to Washington that one year (forget the year), hell, that team was better than ANY!!! UF NC team.


Posted by: CaneRock | July 13, 2010 at 08:49 PM

True, this 2010-11 Canes team and that 2000-01 Canes team are all better than any UF team ever was. Just drawing recent comparisons to prior years. Thought I would look back over the last decade:

Year - Team (record) - previous yr rec.

2000 - Oklahoma (13-0) - 8-5
2001 - Miami, Fla. (12-0) - 11-1
2002 - Ohio State (14-0)** - 8-5
2003 - LSU (13-1) - 8-5
2004 - USC (13-0) - 12-1
2005 - Texas (13-0) - 11-1
2006 - Florida (13-1) - 9-3
2007 - LSU (12-2) - 11-2
2008 - Florida (13-1) - 9-4
2009 Alabama 14-0 - 12-2 and 7-6 in 2008


The average has been the national champion over the last decade has been 0.5 losses, so the BCS Champion has had either one loss or no losses. For the previous year, the average BCS chamption lost 2.4 games; some BCS champions only lost one game while three BCS champions lost 5 games the previous year, and UF lost 4. Each champion came from a BCS conference.

The bottom line is that teams can improve in BCS conferences and make runs for the championship with hard work, talent, chemistry and coaching.

To me the Cokerites were the main reason for the lack of intensity, sustained intensity, simply because THEY WEREN'T INTENSE. lol

You can't be anything other than what you are. And I learned the hard way that those boys were in no way shape or form Hurricane Football material, not in practice, not in the off-season, not in the film room, and definitely not in the games.

Shannon got as much out of them as he could. Now that all of them are basically gone and the Shannonites have mentally and physically grown up, I expect the level of play to increase in direct proportion.

Combine that with Petri, Cassano and two consecutive years of OC/DC and we're ready to stomp some azz Hurricane style.

And I'm sure Shannon's grown in ways that may not be so visible as well.

Windy, good analogy to that UF season. They had a ton of youth that matured in a very similar way to what we have.

Solar, Lebron's not crass, he's just young, spoiled and without any real guidance, not to mention the fact that Jordan's superstardom paved the way for "King James". Without Jordan I doubt you have the media/marketing phenomenon of Lebron.

Fran - thanks for calling into the show, was very cool talking to you man, very cool


For everyone that listened in, appreciate it a bunch

I also apologize for having to be quite boring on the radio, due to George Steinbrenner's passing

As soon as I had my first commercial break, the VP of Broadcasting called into the booth and told the producer to have me talk nothing but Steinbrenner until 7:45 pm

From 5:30 pm something until 7:45 pm, almost 2 straight hours of Steinbrenner talk

I was boring myself while talking, there's only so much you can say about someone for that long, esp. after everyone else in every sports entity around the nation is saying the exact .. same .. thing


Next 2 days, I'm talking about what I want - mainly, FOOTBALL COMING UP

I'll be breaking down the 4 schools in Florida

Tomorrow is "What If" Wednesday, so I'll be posing lots of "What If" scenarios - that always generates calls

What if Tebow went to Alabama instead of Florida. What if Urban Myth took the Notre Dame job instead of the UiF job, then would Bobby Petrino be the head coach at UiF b/c that was Jeremy Foley's next choice. What if Dan Kendra of FSU didn't blow up an experiment in his kitchen and blow out his knee as well. What if Joe Mauer had come to FSU to be the QB, instead of Chris Rix having to start basically as a Frosh. What if Terry Porter didn't throw that flag. What if that brawl between FIU and Miami didn't happen, then what would be considered the final straw to fire Larry Coker? What if Paul Dee wasn't in charge of the NCAA Infractions committee, would the person who would be there instead of him pursue USC as hard as he did in nailing them? What if people weren't lazy as hell when they wore sandals, dragging their feet to make that swishing sound with each step? What if Chick-Fil-A was open on Sundays?


Thursday will basically be football and some Rays talk b/c of their huge series coming up with the Yankees up in New York

So Michael Jordan announces his return to the Chicago Bulls with a two-word press release: “I’m back.”

James announces his new team with a 60-minute TV special. That’s the difference between class and crass.

I was at the Wisconsin game, Miami had that team outtalented, and outathleted at every position, what was missing...the consistency that I mentioned in my previous post...

Posted by: CaneRock | July 13, 2010 at 08:18 PM

I wasn't there but I watched it and we looked smaller and actually slower than they did. I'm sure the field had a something to do with it but our weak links at OL, LB and a few other places were serious. Wisky ran the ball down our throats and actually threw the ball over our heads. I know the score didn't show it but we got whooped.

To me the Cokerites were the main reason for the lack of intensity, sustained intensity, simply because THEY WEREN'T INTENSE. lol

Upon hearing about George's death, a couple of thoughts ...

Over the past 35 years, I believe only one owner has been as intimately associated with the running of a team as Steinbrenner was.
And, believe it or not, he's had control (not ownership) of his team longer than Steinbrenner owned the Yankees ... Al Davis.

Jerry Jones tried to be the Steinbrenner of football and couldn't pull it off. Of course the rules are vastly different in terms of gathering and paying talent.

Old Skool

Six your right about George and spending money, but he was also seeing a return. I don't know how much he took out if anything, but the team's value definitely went up. He bought it for 10 million. It's worth around a billion now.

"I think 2010 for the Canes is comparable to 2007 for UF when they returned from a 9-4 record and a forgettable bowl loss to make a run at a national title through a tough schedule and a more seasoned group of talented players from a #1 recruiting class made up of Florida recruits, some from a highschool team (Lakeland) that won the national championship."

Of these four games, a 2-2 record seems the most realistic, but 3-1 is definitely conceivable.

Posted by: 360Cane | July 13, 2010 at 10:52 AM

Canes will start better than this. Seems that I recall last year many people were predicting an 0-4 start, with 1-3 as an optimistic start to the Canes' season. Instead, the Canes surpised everyone except Capt. O and a few others who post here and they went 3-1. This year, the Canes should start at least 3-1, but I expect 4-0 based on the improvements I saw in the spring and Jacory at 100%.

Barring a torrential rainstorm, the Canes will beat OSU in the Shoe. The Canes are more talented and just as big, and that is a deadly combination for the Buckeyes.

The Canes had that bad experience last year in Blackburg, but Jacory and the rest of that more experienced and hungry Canes leadership will not let the Canes forget what it feels like to be unprepared for a big game.

I think 2010 for the Canes is comparable to 2007 for UF when they returned from a 9-4 record and a forgettable bowl loss to make a run at a national title through a tough schedule and a more seasoned group of talented players from a #1 recruiting class made up of Florida recruits, some from a high school team (Lakeland) that won the national champtionship.

The Canes will make a better run than the Gators did because this schedule is even more challenging, and a 12-0 or 11-1 record will put them in the Fiesta Bowl at the end of theyear and they will shock the world.

CaneRock

Cav, I know He always wanted mental toughness, but you rarely hear Him say it publicly. But I disagree with you about Cokerites and depth being the reason this team didn't bring it week in and week out last season. I was at the Wisconsin game, Miami had that team outtalented, and outathleted at every position, what was missing...the consistency that I mentioned in my previous post...

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Having the same OC and DC helps a ton two.

And did I mention Petri??? HUGE addition, almost as important as Shannon's extension. The lack of moves and technique from our DL was very noticeable compared to other teams.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

that there shows His growth as a HC...

Posted by: CaneRock | July 13, 2010 at 07:49 PM

>>>>

Rock, I seriously doubt there was ever a time that he didn't want that or know his team didn't have it.

That's why he said this past spring, "those guys in the trenches are going to hate me now cause we have the numbers and I can really get into them."

Shannon knows what the teams were like that he played on. He knows what it took mentally and physically. That's no mystery. And you know he hates seeing his team get manhandled, as they have been manhandled in at least one game every year he's been HC.

They still haven't played 4 quarters of Hurricane Football but that's largely because of lack of depth and Cokerites.

Hurricane Football is on another level compared to OSU at its best. I really think it's as much mental as it is physical with them. They don't really have that extra gear of intensity and speed. That's why almost without fail when a proper Hurricane team faces a Big Ten squad it's been a beatdown.

I'm just curious to see how close THIS particular group of players are to proper Hurricane Football. We'll know as Fall ball begins and the eyewitness reports come in. I think it's a lot closer than people think.

CaneRock

Xs and Os aside, The team that brings it, and plays the most violent, will win on 9/11/10, point blank. Outside of blown coverages, the thing that this team lacked last season, was the consistent focus,discipline,effort,intensity,toughness, and aggression. About the only games that you could see the consistency was GT,USF, and Oklahoma. Even in the other games that they won, the consistency was on and off. But the one thing that I'm pleased to hear from Shannon this offseason, is that He wants this team to be mentally tougher, that there shows His growth as a HC...

For NCAA 2011, I read on hear last year that you can download the rosters off all the teams and upload them to the game. I just upgraded to the ps3 this year and bought 2011 today. How do you do this, and is it free?


Yeah like they said it is free and you can get them thru the EA locker online. However they will not be out until Friday. Also I love this game but I am still a little irritated at the minor details that EA did not address. Such as clean uniforms "even when it rains", terrible end zone stand ins, stale commentary that had been used for years. There are a lot of positives though such as new animaitons, locomotion physics and good presentation. Would of loved for EA to have recorded new commentary tho.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

I'm watching the PSU-LSU highlights and Les Miles can't recruit a QB to save his life.

Also watching some of the Wisky game and man am I glad to see those seniors leave. Love the effort and hope they do well but dam, good riddance.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

PSU-LSU.....the weather and field neutralized LSU...and some creative playcalling from PSU and typically average playcalling from LSU.

All I can say is I hope we get PSU before JoePa retires so Shannon can drub his azz and have a winning record against the two winningest CFB HCs.

JoePA will think it's 2001 all over again.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Six, the OSU will come down to one thing and one thing only....whether or not we're playing full tilt Hurricane Football.

Having studied OSU's wins and losses from last year....the Iowa, Navy, Purdue, Oregon, USC, PSU and Wisky games, as well as the Iowa-GT game....I came away with a few conclusions.

First, for OSU to hope to do anything against us they'll have to run the ball and run it well. I'm not convinced they can but I know they better try. Their RBs are solid, not amazing but they can do some damage if you don't wrap up.

Pryor's a gifted athlete but he's not a franchise QB. He doesn't make decisions quickly and his throws are not the most accurate. He can run but he DOES NOT LIKE TO BE HIT. He crumples on impact like a crash test car.

Second, their D still plays that same zone that got them torched against big, strong, fast teams over the last few years. I refer to USC's 35-3 ass-whoopin, and similar embarrassments against UF and LSU.

Basically every time they step outside of the Big 10 and play a team that's a big as they are but has superior team speed, that zone gets shredded and their WRs can't get open. It's really that simple.

But it's also happened a few times against regular opponents, esp. Iowa and Navy last year, and of course Navy was smaller and slower. BUT they were quicker to the point of attack and knew where they were going, so the OSU size advantage was often nullified. And because of that Navy was able to burn their DBs for a few big plays, even though their WRs were clearly slow and small.

Against Iowa, it was more of the above with the crucial difference that Iowa's OL basically neuatralized OSU's DL, opened holes for their average RBs, and gave their brand new but very good QB tons of time to SHRED THAT ZONE INTO SWISS CHEESE, even though their WRs were small and slow compared to ours.

Iowa would've won that game if #86 hand't dropped two TDs.

Oregon was smaller but faster and took advantage of it, on O and D. Oregon made a few critical mistakes and OSU made just enough plays to pull out the win. It wasn't impressive and it just goes to show how delusional their fans are that they think it was such a signal victory.

Penn State was so slow and average I have no idea how LSU let them win that bowl game.

USC's defense held up their end of the bargain last year and dominated OSU but the offense struggled because it was Barkley's first real game. Had he been a seasoned QB they would've stomped them 30-7 again.

The Wisky game all turned on Wisky's QB throwing 2 pic-sixes. Otherwise it's a 17-14 game. Also, Wisky was determined to throw the ball in that game for some reason, to their WRs, who are okay but that's not who they are. They didn't run the ball until they were down.

And the Iowa, Navy and USC games were at the Shoe, so homefield doesn't mean much.

All of this tells me that if we're playing Hurricane Football, we'll stomp them. If we're not it could be close.

Their WRs will not get open unless they're gutting out guys up the middle, something I just don't see. Posey's good but BH and DVD can handle him, Hill and McGee too most likely but I'm sure DVD and BH will be the main one's on him. Little #12 was handled by a true frosh at Oregon, so I'll be surprised if McGee let's him catch a single pass.

Pryor will have DEs and maybe even DTs running him down from behind, to say nothing of LBs. I predict Lovett will mix in some blitzes on 1st to rattle him and them and force him into 2nd and 3rd and long, which is exactly where you want him.

The only weaknesses we have that they could exploit are our LBs but with RR and VT in support I'm not too concerned about that. If Kylan is starting that'll mean he's ready for war, so regardless, we'll have good depth back there once Futch, Buchanon, Holton and maybe Cornelius are in the mix.

On offense it's lights out. Their DL played best against the run but the Iowa and Oregon games show what a balanced attack with some talent can do.

I prefer to use the 2008 USC drubbing as an indication of how we'll beat them. I'm not sure we're playing at that level quite yet as an overall team but I don't think we'll be far from it come 9-11.

Six has been in quite a few times to host the show while Marc was out

He does a very good job hosting. A time or 2 he has been on from 12-3 sitting in for the Babe

BG,

please tel me you'll be working on a cover for the game or you at least know someone that is. As soon as I can. Timmy is gone.

I'm trying to contact EA's development team to give me the code for the wallpaper screen so I can change that as well.

Great call and nice Canespace drop

You cant ask for anything more then that

Awesome job!!!!!

RBLCane

I've never heard Six on the radio, but he's awesome!!!

Also, good point J.W. I'm just happy they've got somebody decent. I'm by no means a b-ball expert; my Canes addiction would never allow it! lol

GO CANES!!!

Fran - was that you who I heard calling in to Six? That Fran was from Volusia county which I believe is where you are from.....

j.w.

Cali- not sure that's a good thing! :) Z can hit a short jumper but not much else these days. They would be better off with Brad Miller if they want a low-cost Center, his D isn't much better but he can pass

Hurri'

CFBLIVE airing “What if PI was never called in the Fiesta Bowl” tomorrow.

Let me sum it up………

Nobody leaves early (AJ, Willie-Mac, Sean T, K2, Big Vince, Vilma, Gore, Scoe’ Scoots, ect.) for the next 2 or 3 years, we to on to win the next two Nationals, making it a historic four titles straight. We eventually run out of “Butch’s Kids,” and Coker becomes the 1st coach ever to get bounced after winning National Titles in four of his first six years.

Mr. Steinbrenner has pretty much donated something to everything here in the 813/727

This is his town

360 - I have a contact at EA and I forwarded them your concern.

DZ8

I never understood why some Dolphins fans didn't like Huiezenga. All he ever did was go out and get a "hot" coaching name when the chance came. Spent money on free agents, etc... He spent money on his team, he tried the only way an owner can. Just the Steinbrenner talk made me think of him.

Canez1

Six I will be listening online.

Do your thing bro!

GO CANEZ!!!!!

Six

Any Canes in the 813/727/941 - I'll be filling in as host on the ESPN radio station, 1040 AM .... in about an hour, and also for the next 2 days from 3-7pm

People can listen online as well, just go to the website ESPN 1040 AM in Tampa

Six

Steinbrenner just lambasted the players while they were on his team - he didn't have to do it as much when they left, ha

The guy was a brilliant businessman and had a complete hatred of losing

He wasn't afraid to spend whatever it took to put a winner on the field

His off the field charity work goes unsaid, he was truly a great man in that department

To add to just how bad it is up in Cleveland and the state of Ohio, think about if the owner of the Indians back in early 1970's would've actually agreed to let Steinbrenner buy the Indians from him - wow

Instead, Steinbrenner bought the Yankees for a little over $8 Million - and look what they accomplished since then

Unbelievable

He is an icon here in Tampa

I hate the Yankees with a passion, mainly b/c I grew up a Royals fan and learned to not like them since I could walk ..... but everyone wants an owner like Steinbrenner, b/c he puts money back into the team to do what it takes to win

I hated the Yankees even more when I became a Rays fan in 1997, b/c my team then was put into the same division as them and Boston ... both teams that spent a hell of a lot more money than my Rays

But damn if I wouldn't have loved to have an owner that wasn't afraid to put money back into the team like Steinbrenner did. I can dream about Crawford, Longoria, Price, S.Rodriguez, etc. being Rays for a long long time b/c the money will always be there to pay them

The one part about Steinbrenner that I wouldn't want him being the owner is, some of the decisions to trade away such younger talent to bring in older veteran players

Think about when Steinbrenner was given a lifetime ban by MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent in 1990 - during the time Steinbrenner was out, the Yankees executives and acting GM Gene Michael, brought in young players named: Andy Petitte, Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter

Steinbrenner probably would've had them traded, ha

Anyway, RIP George Steinbrenner

For NCAA 2011, I read on hear last year that you can download the rosters off all the teams and upload them to the game. I just upgraded to the ps3 this year and bought 2011 today. How do you do this, and is it free?

Posted by: Six | July 13, 2010 at 03:08 PM


Very well thought out, articulate, logical post questioning the Canes potential success in Ohio. And therein is the problem with that post. Preseason conjecture has to be made without evidence which is why football prognostication is entertaining. All I have to say to the entire state of Ohio and Buckeye Nation is this - LeBron James.

Six

I wouldn't call a win at Ohio State just yet

I wonder just how many Canes were really affected by that 2003 Fiesta Bowl .... seeing how they were all around the age of 12 or 13? As opposed to all of us who still have nightmares about it

I guess people have high aspirations for the O-Line, but is that b/c of the disappointment of how they played when they last saw them, in the Champs Bowl, or the fact that they gave up 30+ sacks?

I need to see it before I believe it with these kids

It'll be interesting come game day on 9/11 on here to see just how many negative comments will be being typed furiously about the O-Line and how many positive ones

It's in Columbus at the Horseshoe. Pryor is a year older and he showed dramatic improvement by the end of the season last year. I don't think he'll be 103rd in the nation in passing again, or Ohio State will be last in the conference in passing either

I highly doubt he's going to be putting up Case Keenum numbers, but, the kid can hurt you with his feet out there, which causes the Defense to hesitate

He might not light up the stats in passing, but, even in his young career, he's been the QB for 2 Big 11 Championships and a Rose Bowl win last year over Oregon in a BCS game

He also has some pretty decent running backs behind him

Believe me, I don't like the kid - and he's not exactly the worst QB the Canes will face all year

The Canes aren't even considered the team Ohio State thinks might give them the most trouble - Wisconsin and Iowa are, one reason is b/c they have to travel on the road for those 2 games

Whoever the Canes have on their WR Dane Sanzenbacher, better be ready. He's not flashy, but he's got route running skills like Anthony Gonzalez did, while Ted Ginn Jr. got a lot of hype just b/c he was a fast beanpole

Whoever is blocking DE Cameron Heyward better be ready as well - he's the son of "Ironhead" Heyward, the kid could've come out last year and probably been a 1st Rounder, high 2nd Rounder

Ohio State's O-Line is returning all their starters, 3 Jrs and 2 Srs

They have 10 starters returning on Offense

They will have to replace their 2 starting Safeties on their Defense, and have 6 starters returning there

I'm no fan of Alfalfa Dinich either. But she does pull the Captain Obvious card out of her sleeve by putting the O-Line on task - I would as well. Also, just how sure are the Canes realistically of their DB situation? We all know Brandon Harris is no one to worry about, he's got his position on lock down. But what about the other DB position and nickel as well?

We're all just speculating on some players, other players have shown what they're capable of

We have no problems with Hankie, Byrd, Blur Benjamin, Brandon Harris, Beast Bailey, etc. but some of the others are still somewhat questionable in their overall performance - that's a fact

Bro, all Dinich does is straddle the fence because she doesn't know football AT ALL. She can't analyze strengths and weaknesses so she can't predict. Thus, she plays it safe and says "if this, then that, but if this, then that." Like that sentence about OSU. Instead of saying what has to happen or what the keys to the game are, like almost every other site/writer, she just says, "it could happen but it's unlikely."

She clueless and therefore worthless. She and Shandel should get together. They have a lot in common.

I think you have to go to the actual PSN Store to redeem the code. Once it downloads to your system, the game will add it once you boot it up.

There should be a "Redeem Code" option in the menu somewhere.

CaneSniper

hmm, home win streak record, or home sellout record, which one would I rather have? 8-)

Posted by: Ungar | July 13, 2010 at 12:41 PM

Trust me, Nebraska's home sellout record is a direct reflection of the fact that there's nothing to do here other than watching corn grow. Put this program by South Beach and their stands would be empty.

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

R.I.P. George, great winner and never complained of losing players to other teams, instead he reloads and move on.
Very loyal and never lambasts his ex-players unlike the guy up in Ohio.

Strange that Shannon said he was at 100% but Jacory says he is at 85%. Someone's math is off.

If he looks 100% to Shannon but still has 15% more to go to get to 100%, that is good news, right?
