Pbcfrcane13 I think people do blame the players along with Shannon Jacory was roasted for a while on here, mcarthy has been called out along with franklin, DVD, the wideouts minus Hank, Figs. Both players and coaches are responsible but ultimately it falls on the head coach and if he can't motivate, lead , get these guys ready to play then he will be held accountable

CGNC

Coaches come and go in this business and it is not just this team/school that makes changes or needs to. Look at what Nebraska did - hired Callahan instead of Pellini in the first place, he didn't perform to their expectations, so they got rid of their AD and re-hired Osbourne as interim AD who installed Pellini as coach. In 2009 under Pellini they led the nation in scoring defense. As of today the Huskers are doing pretty well with him.

And there are our Croc friends. Do you think the Gator fans are happy with 3 losses? LOL Any idea with another 3-4 loss season will do to Meyer's seat? It would be pretty hot I would think

Solar I liked the vids. Language was fine - made it funny!

Ungar

I hope they run Miller outside the entire game. The guys fast and then faster.
...
Miller gets the ball tossed to him or stays outside he's gold, inside look for Storm or Mike James to have to do the pounding.

The outside toss that UVA ran against us for a TD would work great for Miller. Benjamin, too.

Shakey Shannon will be here at least another year

solar, I was shocked at the language.

But that was part of what made it FUNNY!

Comedians these days throw bad language around willy-nilly, but the true comedians of the past could use a well-timed bad word for actual shock value.

solarcane

cg ungar, thanks im glad you get it.

I don't even say damn in my daily conversations, ask soup, skool, ocala, hershey. But to get the sense of anger and urgency into the clips I tried to script them like I thought the characters would speak.

Check out Big Money Jerome on South Beach He is calm and a true Cane fan.

getting a text to speech generator to slow down and be laid back is a bich lol!

On the old Mac, they had one called the Talking Moose, the voice coming from there would sound like Ahhnold.

Getting it to talk was a fun challenge.

Sooo, where is the photoshop of Mrs. Native wife getting nudged by Old School, and the photoshop of Native Jr. in the mouth of a shark?

ungar,
I'll whip up a few of your requests for you this weekend.
I gotta go paint a deck for a few hours

out!

carolinacane

Yes the players should be held accoutable just as much as Shakey, but who recruited thes guys, Shakey did. He wanted and wants players that come from winning high school programs so what is this telling us, that the high school coaches can motivate these kids to perform and Shakey can't. What's our Dee's excuse for it's up and down play, I mean we had the whole dee back form last year. We've given up at least 3 tds of over 70 yards this year and how many do we have-zero! Won't have that as long as Berry is back there. I like Berry but he's a between the tackles guy and not the combo guy we need. I like Miller, who i believe has the whole package. This game will be a major struggle for us. The dee has to show up this week because as we all know next week, if we stay on cycle will be another blow up game where everything goes wrong. Upset special of the week Canes 20-17.

Don't suppose the Canes players foggy first half problems is because they drank this Four Loko energy drink before games as a mistake ?


Ahhhhhhhhhh Haaaaaaaaaaa !!!

Four Loko a cheap but potentially harmful buzz
Posted by Nicolette Roque on Sep 22, 2010 | 8 Comments


Graphic by Felipe Lobon
From compromising Facebook photo albums to house parties across Miami, the new brew can be spotted in a large, colorful can with the words “Four Loko” scrawled across. But with an undisclosed amount of caffeine and a variety of other energy drink ingredients- taurine, guarana and wormwood (the active ingredient in absinthe)- you’d be ‘loko’ to drink one of these.

The caffeinated alcoholic malt beverage recently became popular in Miami because of its cheap price and reputation. Those who drink Four Loko guarantee inebriation for an average-sized person with a single can. Costing about $3 per can, the 24-ounce caffeine cocktail contains 12 percent alcohol content, making it 24-proof. In plain words, a person drinking Four Loko consumes the equivalent of three beers in one successive round for under $5.

“I felt worse after drinking it,” junior Guillermo de La Puente said. “The hangover feeling lasted three days. I couldn’t even enjoy eating.”

De La Puente, who drank one and a half cans of Four Loko, says his friend had only a little more and was passed out for two hours at a concert.

“My friend drank two cans and I drank one and a half,” De La Puente said. “That half was the difference between life and death.”

In addition, no other beer is sold in gas stations or small liquor stores containing that much alcohol in one can. Common misconceptions that Smirnoff Ice and Bacardi Silver, or other “alco-pops” are similar beverages lead consumers to purchase Four Loko and similar products because of its “fad status.”

Though this may sound like a frat party fantasy, psychologists urge consumers to stick to their Natural Ice if a cheap buzz is what they’re after. The concern isn’t so much about the alcohol content alone as it is about the excess of energy drink chemicals. Though the dangers of mixing caffeine and alcohol are not news to physicians, many students in the University of Miami are oblivious to the health risks it poses.

According to a 2008 article in Time Magazine, the buzz achieved by Four Loko and all other alcoholic energy drinks gives the false sensation of alertness. They trick the mind into believing it’s sober. Therefore, drinking one guarantees motor skill impairment, though the brain may not process it. The fact that a person doesn’t feel drunk until after consuming the whole drink presents a massive safety risk.

The drink’s list of ingredients masks the taste of alcohol in 660 calories- for the most part. Available in eight fruity flavors, the beverage is still described by most people as “disgusting.”

“The watermelon flavor is the only one that tastes decent,” sophomore Daniella Carucci said.

The selection of flavors, such as lemonade, blueberry and orange, sound harmless and appealing to female and/or inexperienced drinkers. The promise that you can get drunk and party all night because of the caffeine makes it especially attractive to younger consumers.

“I usually see Four Loko in the hands of people who don’t look or act over 21,” junior Ashley Valdes said. “I’m sure the fact they’re probably not used to so much alcohol would yield messy results.”

Last time I will talk about this, so of course it's not going to be too short

I think it's safe to say, we all are smarter for having read that your, "not too short" post.

Good stuff Seis... We shall si ?

CGNC

"Hell, I'd do whatever I could to help the kid by sewing his pooper shut and shoveling food down his pie hole if it could possibly add some weight to him. But I think you saw the possibilities of what can happen even with a baptism by fire with Morris, with this O"

Six, wow, just wow. LOL!!!!

Six

WGT22 - I think it will be fun to watch what happens with Morris. I think with his arm, the WRs will either catch it or they'll have their sternums broken .... maybe even the DBs, who knows. I'd like to see a lot of Storm out there as well to see what the kid from solar's territory can show us

Maybe the team rallies around the Pace kid and somehow magically starts turning into that team that Lebatard described in the "U Documentary" where Erickson had 100 pitbulls he was trying to hold back on a chain

Hey, we can dream, right?

Six

CGNC - you know I'm not one to not say what I feel sometimes, ha

CGNC

Six - LOL! You like that "baptism by fire"! I hope Stephen Morris has decent protection and doesn't get his head knocked off. seems like our QB's start out good and that get the !^%!! knocked out of them and are never the same

CGNC

^^then get

Sebastian

A bigtime chance for some of these young kids on O to step up and make a gameday impression on the staff

On the D side of things I would like to see RayRay get alot more PT

He has been playing pretty darn well lately and the few times when the tv has made it seem he has been out of position he really hasnt been, its more about him trying to cover up for someone missing their assignment

I know Manimal is catching alot of heat for not playing at a high level, but he is playing very well considering 90% of the time he either is doubled or they run away from him. By the way, not only is that guy big as heck, he is also very quick and dang fast

Solar i got an e-mail from Susan at the Herald.She watched with Manny the vids many times. They said it was very funny.

Just had a flashback when I was playing baseball at Santa Play CC in Gainesville back in the early 80's. Gator Growl, that year had Bill Cosby, who wore an all blue Florida sweatsuit with the # 69 on it told this joke... "Now, you college students, I can smell the pot out there. I get it. In my college days it was the recreation drug of choice as well. But what I don't understand is this whole cocaine craze. I just don't understand why people use cocaine. I hear that in the club sceane the common answer as to why people snort cocaine is because they say it inhances their personality... To which I would ask them, well, what if you're a complete asshole!"

And that was a risque as it got, and it was a geat show ... The year before, Robin Williams, no doubt jacked on coke was halarious as well. But he has a pretty interesting personality though.

Anyways, that Randy n Whipple makes me laugh still, after the 10th. time. And laughs is what we can all use at this time.

Funny you call JJ Jumpy Johnson, we always called him Jumpin' Jaws.
My now deceased BCBE ( Best Canes Buddy Ever) by the name of Joe Hacsi dubbed him Jumpin' Jaws when he first came to the U.

Six,

Enjoyed your Calvinesque post. I prob agree with U around 70% of the time or so, but always enjoy reading what U have to say - except for all the Rays & Yankee junk. Your Yankees obsession is ALMOST mcjones-like.

Speaking of which...I'm only not really sure why U keep trying to engage in rational discussion with the irrational. Any questions U ask wont get answered or addressed and your points will be taken out of context, deliberately. U may or may not be correct when it comes to Whip vs The Boss...or the person formerly known as the Boss...but U sure as heck are wasting time U can never recover, ever, by spending it "debating" mac-j. Good luck wid dat.

macjones

mac- I get a kick out of him, for about 10 minutes once or twice a month, but mostly because he's like a cartoon character. He pretty much rips everyone, which I respect, but his views on most topics are so over the top that I don't take him too seriously.

Oh, the ' petty-minded ' generalizations of a j.w. LMAO

It seems yous do listen to Savage. LOL Because you've absolutely never took the time to respond to moi. LMAO

Man
A very average GT playing with without there star, using their 2 string QB on the road against thne best team in the conference.
And they are confident enough to stay right with VT right to the late 4th qtr. They will probably lose on the kick return for a TD but they played their azz off.

Posted by: solarcane | November 04, 2010 at 10:41 PM

That upcoming game in A-T-L for Miami ain't going to be a bloody ' walk in the park. ' Especially with the Rambling Wreck having a few extra days to rest and relax, as well as prepare for Team Shannon.

Say what yous want to say bout' Johnson and his GA Tech staff, at least they understand how to get their squad ready for a tough Beamer Ball team. No.

It's a bloody shame Miami wasn't on the same wavelength, as GA Tech was last night, against MIGHTY Virginia.

macjones

And I'm sick and tired of all of the god damn excuses on here year-in, year-out.

Our guys are young. They are still young. We were injured. We had new coordinators. We committed too many penalties. If you take away the turnovers. If you take away the drops. If we could cover the tight end. If we could tackle. If we wouldn't have dropped those INTs. etc.

We are all full of excuses (myself included). I am sick of that BS. Face it. We are mediocre at best and if we played in the Big 10, SEC, PAC 10, and maybe Big 12 we would be a sub-.500 team. That is who we are. Not very good.

Posted by: BEERicane | November 04, 2010 at 11:02 PM

Voila.

This is a ' TEAM SHANNON ' breakdown of epic proportions. LMAO

For the Shannon and his Cane staff, as well as the Miami players all contributed to a ' average-itis ' football squad. No.

Montreal-Cane

Solar we need to make one more funny vid with Joe Rose and Randy...I am all jacked up! Well you know what it is Joe...And so on..Lol...

macjones

We have POTENTIALLY Top 5 talent, but in reality are somewhere in the 50-40 ranks. This is why I am frustrated lately.

Posted by: BEERicane | November 05, 2010 at 09:33 AM

Your absolUtely bloody wrong on the ' potentially Top 5 talent! '

Now Top 15 talent, yes. However, that was after the Ohio St. game. And Miami has steadily de-evolved to an above-average major college football team. Nothing more and nothing less.

Montreal-Cane

I have watched the replay when Jacory got injured many times...Pat Hill must feel terrible and the O-line in general...Now JH will miss also the GT game and maybe more...

What are the conditions for a medical redshirt...It's probably for less than 50% of the games played...

macjones

Now for some positive vibes regarding Team Shannon's Hank'Em.

http://espn.go.com/acc/blog

" Miami wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is having one of the most productive seasons in school history. Through eight games, Hankerson has 44 catches for 681 yards and a team-best nine touchdowns. He has scored at least one touchdown in six of UM’s eight games and needs just two more receiving touchdowns to tie Michael Irvin’s single-season school record mark of 11 set in 1986. After recording 801 receiving yards last season, Hankerson is also looking to become just the third player in school history to record back-to-back 800-yard receiving seasons. Michael Irvin (840 in 1985; 868 in 1986) and Andre Johnson (881 in 2001; 1,092 in 2002) are the only other Canes to have ever accomplished the feat. "

Montreal-Cane

Tavares Gooden on Joe Rose this morning...

Ray Lewis is so humble...He is the greatest...

I really really hope Ray Lewis will coach the D at the U in the near future...

It's hard to pick my team this sunday...The Dolphins or the Baltimore Canes.

DZ8

I'll be going to the game, wearing my Dolphins gear!

I will be sitting close to where the Ravens enter the field however and will flash The U at Lewis, Reed, McGahee, and Gooden:)

DZ8

I don't expect a good game for the Dolphins but you never know, the Ravens had a bye last week and could come out sluggish like the Jets (0pts.) did last week.

get damn roguish-- run the damn ball!!!!

I believe Solar already mentioned this but it feels great to have everyone on the same page for once. Miami sucks and it is going to be awhile before they are a good team again. Miami will finish the season 7-5. I REPEAT Miami will LOSE two more games. They are NOT beating G Tech in Atlanta and we are going to get manhandles against VT. Just cross your fingers that BJ Daniels does not run all over us with his miraculous scrambling ability. We suck and finally everyone is in agreement. I wish Miami could hire a new proven head coach with an NFL background but I know money is tight and Donna seems to take more pride in Academics and the graduation rate. Which do not get me wrong is very important. Just can not understand for the life of me why in the world are we so sloppy? I mean I have seen high football games with more execution. Lets start over and try again..

elliott

Destroy and Rebuild....

Sebastian

No need to speak for everyone Elliot

I have not nor will I ever say that Miami sucks

I know im not part of the clique so I guess I dont count as being part of that so called page

But as I stated before you will never ever hear me say that Miami sucks

pbcfrcane13

You know what the funniest thing about all this complaining is? We suck RS sucks the school doesnt care about football we will never be the U.... BLAH BLAH BLAH

You want to know how simple all this crap is? Give us a better QB or a great QB and nobody is complaining about anything!!!!!!! With that type of QB were all saying RS is a good coach nobody even talks about Donna!!

Why cause UM would be 7-1(4-1). We would have beaten OSU....if you take away lets just say even 3 of those picks and then we would have beaten UVA if you of course take away lets just say 1 of those picks. UM does not have a problem other then the QB spot. We have a QB who is good or even ok. These team can not win with an OK or good QB they need a great QB.

This is not that hard to see people!!!!!

If UM was 7-1 right now cause FSU we just got killed nobody would be complaining about anything!!! So go ahead complain about all this stuff, but you want to fix UM and our record....I say it's as simple as giving us a great QB till the D and everybody else gets better.....till that happens then UM will be a 9-3, 8-4 team.

I'm sure I'll get killed for this out look, but before you go and do that just think about it people take off the hater glasses for RS and think what this team would be right now minus the turnovers by your QB. Just sayin......

GO CANES!!!!

Problem with that qb fix is that after Morris comes out and lights it up and jacory get healthy jacory will still play and we are back to square one. Next year will be no different. To misquote humphrey bogart "Play it again, Sam."
