here is 12 seconds 200 photos of practice getting the timing for "Lil Rickies Bike Rack Dance" scene in the Dot Fiction movie
This isn't the quality or lighting of the actual scene.

I'm not trying to be a downer but if all 12 players were to be suspended for a majority of the year the smart move would be self-imposed sanctions. No bowl game and loss of schollies. Jmo

Zilla..whachU doing up in here? We are all outta beverages so U gotta BYOB. Scandal got U down?

Man, this Cane's investigation has almost taken a life of its own. I know it is an easy story to run with due to the controversial nature of the allegations, but for it to be on Sports Talk Radio on a fairly regular basis here in the Twin Cities is nuts.

There is a John Feinstein being interviewed now. His first comment on it was that it was a crazy due to the sheer number of allegations Shapiro made while "on record". He states that he is aware that Shapiro is a crook, but...

Exactly, BUT. He has a flippin' book to sell to try to satisfy debts.

So what if the U is used as an example, I'm not losing any sleep over this. Seriously, this is the attitude that people that claim to care for CFB and the student-athletes take, at least the vast majority of them. And then they are all up in arms when some scandal is "revealed". Whatever.

I should note that it was also mentioned that NCAA President Emmert was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning talking about the incredible way that the U has been cooperating with this investigation.

Well, I hope it that is worth something. But in my humble opinion, this entire system is a sham and the degree to which a univ cooperates should not matter much at all. Shakin' my head.

UM is the ultimate Bad Wrestler. There are a few of us out there that love to love UM; everybody else loves to hate.

Solar...U got that right! Even bg1906 snuck in the back door the other day, did U see that?

And I wanted to give U a major SHOUT OUT for all the excellent content you have been researching and posting here on the blog lately. Nice work buddy, very nice work.

WORD. UP. At this point, I've gotten numb to the NCAA side of things. I just want to watch somebody in the wrong color of uniform get clobbered.

eYeofthestorm

If these coaches can guide us through this mess, it will be the coaching job of the century. I say lock up Golden throw the loot at him and keep from thinking of going anywhere else, that's the smart move, since we haven't made to many good ones!

I hate the young man got hurt but I' trying to deal with one headache at a time right now and that's football.

I read recently that Solar is being investigated for paying college interns who play Div III sports with Canespace merchandise for assisting him with his Canespace work. However, he has cooperating fully with the investigation and may only be suspended for one week of blogging.

No, in all seriousness, I, too, have greatly appreciated Solar's stellar work!! Gracias, Sr. Sol!

orange 'n green in the vein

Irony. Paradox would be he was never allowed to have one before becoming a professinal driver for the same thing.

OGV thanks I'm serious. I learn a lot from you that has nothing to with football.

Fellow Hurricanes: Wear Orange!

For those of you returning to campus, welcome back! And to the Class of 2015: Welcome to the U! The start of a new year always brings a renewed sense of school pride. As we see old friends and meet new people, our ‘U family’ grows in size and strength. The news of NCAA rule-violation allegations against our athletics program is troubling. But when have we, the students at the University of Miami, ever shied away from representing our school - our family – when a challenge presents itself to us?

Each and every day, we wear the U with pride on our campus and all around the country. We wear it not as just a logo on our shirt but as our heart on our sleeve. We are proud to be Miami Hurricanes, and we have no problem letting other people know. That should not and will not ever change. With the over 15,000 students at this great University and the over 165,000 living alumni, we have over 160,000 family members who bleed orange and green - something no one can take away.

The buildings and fountains on campus make up the University of Miami. But it is us - the students--who make it ‘The U’. When the TV cameras pan at the football games, they pan to us. When the country wants to know how a school is handling a situation, they look to us. We need to show everyone that our family is as strong as it’s ever been and it is a bond that is forever growing stronger.

Now, our U family needs to be stronger than ever. That is why I ask each and every one of you to wear orange on Wednesday to support our family, and to mark the start of a new year - a year that will be defined the way we, and no one else, choose to define it. Together, we will show the country what it means to be a Miami Hurricane. Step by step and day by day our U family will show the country and the world that it truly is great to be a Miami Hurricane.

Go ‘Canes!

Brandon Mitchell
Undergraduate Student Government President

Posted by: solarcane | August 23, 2011 at 05:59 PM


As OGV says, it's ironic. There are two types of irony:

1. Verbal irony: something is said or written which is at odds with the intent of the person making the statement, usually intentionally, but not always

2. Situational irony: something happens in the course of narrative events that a) was not the expected outcome; and b) shows that our expectations for outcomes in narrative are somehow flawed.

Verbal irony is frequently mistaken for sarcasm. Situational irony is basically life as we know it. ;)

Certainly, a race car driver losing his license for driving fast is a candidate for situational irony status.

As OGV notes, paradox is a logical, rather than linguistic, construct. There is nothing illogical about a race car driver losing his license for driving too fast, so it cannot be a paradox. But it can still be ironic that a man's livelihood -- driving fast -- was responsible for the ticket. (Not the most profound irony ever, but still, not a paradox. Irony.)

soup read it,

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

thanks dj

Thanks 86 for posting that heartfelt letter from the UM undergraduate President. Very heartwarming, a little sad for what lies ahead, but a call to arms for the U army to stand tall and stand together.
I must be getting gushy and a softie in my old age! I have my orange on right now, a day early.

What I'm burning on:

1. Will #8 start?
1a. BOLD PREDICTION - If all 12 guys are deemed ineligible, we
still will go to and win a bowl game.
2. Are the allegations in any way affecting how the staff will
form the depth charts?
3. Hope Nevin is placed with the general population once he's
transferred down here...
4. Seems to me like more +'s than -'s are coming out in regards
to the investigation.
5. Glad to finally be posting on here regularly again...

Aces & Canes

Well hello canespace, I know I haven't been around in a while, but I have a few good reasons. #1 I just got moved my new house about a month ago, and #2 I'm waiting on my first child, a baby girl, so I've been quite busy. Figured I'd get my name back out there since it's about that time again. I know it's a rough time for us these days, but it's gonna be what it's gonna be, so I'm not gonna cry or whine a damn bit. If we did wrong, we take the punishment, bottom line. As long as they don't take my beloved Canes off TV I'll be fine. So that being said, lets take what we got up to Maryland and make some turtle soup!! Go Canes, stay strong, we got this!!

Very apropos:

"Energy is wasted when you try to infulence people who have already decided they're not going to be happy or nice. Let them be as they are & spend energy on the people that love & accept you, where you are, & as you are. Beware...you will attract more of the kind of people you focus your energy & attention on."

DON'T TRY TO WIN OVER HATERS You are not the Jerk Whisperer!!!!
