Damm you Roach missed by seconds :)


Dude... it never fails..whenever I am "offline" for awhile, come back to my machine and check into Canespace... I end up being #1.

When I'm online for 6 hours straight, I never end up being first.

Hey Soup, if SinisterCane hasn't gotten one in awhile, please give him my Canespace t-shirt...


Since I no longer live in Miami, (32 yrs away now), my limited Spanish, (from 4 yrs in Jr. & High school), is now pretty much limited to the dialog we had to memorize way back when...

"Hola Isabel, ¿como esta? Estoy bien, gracias, ¿y tu?"

That's it folks... LOL

RE: Miami Heat

Sounds like both the college and professional fan base in the Tri-Counties of South Florida in general. Say it ain't so.

Yeah, yeah it's understandable that SoFla is an INTERNATIONAL city and mUcho peoples migrate down there from other vicinities of Pax Americana. Yikes.

Still, it's a known sports generalization, that the folk in the metro areas of South Florida be BANDWAGON and FAIRWEATHER sports fans par excellance. Get outta' here.

I think "Clive" is a good name. So we should make him the TE.


Moonbat...Check it:



Blake Ayles has officially enrolled in classes at the University of Miami and will be a member of the football team for the 2011 season.

Ayles, a senior tight end, comes to Miami via Southern Cal, where he played the last three years under Pete Carroll (2008-09) and Lane Kiffin (2010).

In three seasons as a Trojan, Ayles caught 14 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown, including a career-best 54-yard touchdown grab against Cal this past season. Ayles' position coach at USC, Brennan Carroll, is now the Hurricanes' tight ends coach and national recruiting coordinator.

Ayles went to USC after an impressive prep career at Orange Lutheran High School in Orange, Calif. Out of high school, he was rated as the No. 2 tight end prospect in the country and the 31st-ranked player overall in his class.


I feel pretty good about our TEs now... I think with Golden being a former TE himself, we'll see a greater focus on getting TE's involved in the offense.

Got pretty tired of Whipple-ball killing nice drives by chucking bombs to WRs as far as JH could heave it. (Not very productive, or consistent.)

That's because that Whipple Factor sly, subtle intentions were to bloody U-ndermine Coach Shannon. That's all.

To pick at old scab with a GRINDING AXE.

The Virginia game is all U-all Cane ruffians need to know about Miami's ex-offensive coordiantor.

The Hurricanes have a decent running game going in the second-half and what does Miami do when they reach the red zone of the Cav.

The O-coordinator goes away from the running game and puts a GREEN QB in bloody harm's way and the Kid throws a INT in the endzone.

And this basically takes away a possible FG, which comes back to haunt Miami in the waning minutes of the fourth-quarter of a close ball game.


Thanks RoachCane I received 1 for my Wife but if 86 want to give me that hot green shirt, I'll take it. lol

Big Daddy Cane

My money is on Cory White. The size, speed, and team mentality will cause problems for someone.

dj moonbat

Imagine, a guy named Clive with dreadlocks. I've come across so many Jamaicans named Clive, it even stopped being remarkable after a while.

If we run 2 TE sets, we could call the formation "Cleveland & Clive." It sounds like a buddy film.

What's a grinding axe? Does it make a difference if it's in ALL CAPS, or is it nonsensical both ways?

"What's a grinding axe?

Posted by: dj moonbat | June 13, 2011 at 04:12 PM"

It's the present version of an ax you're going to use on the ground capitalized or not?

The mac is just feeling the euphoric swell of Terry's called tat shot connecting for the former Wildcat who played under Lute right now it appears.


Have OGV and Macjones ever been seen together at the same time?

Things that make U go hmmmmmmmm...


Today's wurd on da skreet is...

By far the guy everyone wants to see at CB is Clements. There is a feeling that this guy really can be special at CB. In addition to Clements it looks like Finnie will see time.

People do not realize that Grimble was a HUGE steal on NSD. He may be the big DT run stopper that Miami needs. He could see some PT this year also.

3G is going to be really good. He is solid and a leader.

Everyone is waiting to see how the Canes and Golden are going to use Crawford. He has a chance to be a real game changer. Speed to burn.


I am going to say the guy who actually catches the ball...yes that is the one I like!


I know what you mean Soup... both OGV & macjones seem to communicate in the same nonsensical verbiage... it's beyond my limited comprehension most of the time.

(Guess I'm just too old to understand.)

BTW can't make the WYP2 Tour this year... have a wedding to attend on the 23rd. Maybe next Summer...


FSU pitching is having a bit if an issue this evening.....8-0 aggies top of the 2nd!


I like the way you think canechic... all this talk is just that... talk... ranking "stars"... 40 times... blah, blah, blah...

Performance on Saturdays is where it's at!


CWS Teams in...

Thats a good article on the tight ends by the way.

The summer is the perfect time for Canespacers to give hacking out an article a try.

We would all enjoy reading something a fellow spacer cooked up.

Here are a few, but not all Canrspacers I'd like to read an article by, these are off the top of my head because they are folks that usually put me in my place with real facts when I get carried away.

Alpharetta Cane,

I'm a Magic fan. Family has had season tickets since the days of Terry Catledge and Reggie Theus

I'll give you a "D" for effort though .. I guess


Is Old Skool going to be on the Wet Your Pants Tour?

I remember seeing those pics of him in the back of the raft with that smirk on his face, waiting for the perfect moment to dump someone out of the boat

He didn't try to pull any shenanigans when I had lunch with him in Tampa at a pretty damn good BBQ joint


Off topic - For any hockey fans out there. Boston putting it to Vancouver BAD. 4 goals in 1st 10 mins. Luongo pulle after 3 of em after 8:40 into the game




Vancouver getting beat down up in Chowda-town .. 4-0 in the 1st Period

Noles getting beat down in their house by the Aggies .. 9-2, top of the 6th (meaning that Mike Martin will not win the CWS AGAIN in his 31 years at the helm of the Noles

It's a good night so far


Six the magic organization is about as good as the marlins. I love messing with "magics" fans...so if Dwight leaves and maybe goes to Miami? I told them I do not want to see them burning his jersey at the altamonte mall...lol!


Six the bruins came to play loving it!

We are not related and we are independent individuals so put away the conspiracy theories gentlemen right this second. Besides, macjones has no opinion on Broduer and the Devils of New Jersey and I'm sweating the Parise contract every day now, so that's proof enough right there we are not one and the same.

Is anybody else raising an eyebrow that highly touted Ayles (consensus #1 at his position coming out of Lutheran despite the #2 ranking cited above) has done nothing under the Cheating Pete's son tutelage and now we get the same quality of coaching applied to our university's players at the position in question? Let's just hope his eye for talent is as slick as his tongue is in selling the program to wrangle verbal commits and he improves his coaching ability in the interim to actually get some production. Please don't cite overgrown and slow as molasses Fred Davis to me, guy was a third tackle playing off the line in a conference with no defensive athleticism to bring him down or even catch his lumbering @$$ to attempt to.


CC - Is it even possible they could afford Howard? I remember reading he said he was gonna retire with Orlando, but I wouldn't hold most athletes to their word lol


canechic - when they resigned/matched JJ Reddick to keep him in Orlando, I just shook my head ... also shook my head at Grant Hill robbing that organization for all those years while just sitting on the bench b/c of his injury


on a side note, who the hell are those 2 overly fat guys at the Noles game on ESPN that are walking down on the front row, in FSU jerseys and getting the crowd to do the oooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh N-O-L-E-S NOLES chant?

Exactly like the Canes chant


What about Richard Gordon as the next great 'Canes TE?

I bet he survives and thrives (well, at least lands a roster spot) with some NFL club.

Can't remember who drafted him, but anyone who returned a KO in his college career (vintage Shannon) should be on the above list.


Golden will make a difference at TE and the other positions as well. I saw the spring games, and I was suprised to see the TEs more than held their own.

The Canes have the talent, but never performed on the field. They have put some players in the NFL the last two years, and they will put more this season. I would be suprised if the Canes do not produce at least one 1st round pick in the 2012 draft.

As Phil Steele recently commented in a Sun Sentinel article, the Canes were the most talented team in the ACC the last two years, but simply under-performed. Golden will change that.

I see double-digit victories and a possible ACC championship for the 2011-12 football season. Golden will get the recruits to buy into the program, and he will renew the BCS runs the Canes are used to very soon.
