Yep. Usually the first Wednesday of Feb.

Soup it has taken me 3 days of frustrating attempts to log in to typepad. I had to find my original sign in which somehow was corrupted 2 years ago and finally use it to get to where the "post a comment" appeared.
If we can help in any way let us know. I am due to have Dr. Thompson do the rotorooter thing on one or both cartoid arteries in Jan.
I will have partial knee replacements on both knees by Dr. Hollmann who is the leading knee surgeon in Cent. Fl
He was chief ortho surgeon for the 2006 olympic team in China.The borken hip has to be healed 3-4 months before he will operate at Fl Hos Deland.
Jean has to retake her mamogran they saw something suspicious,we hop it is nothing.

If you already have a Facebook or Twitter account you can sign in from there.

And if you can figure out how to sign up for a Facebook or Twitter account then you can certainly sign up for a FREE Typepad account directly if U choose.

The problem many are having is that there work place blocks employees from signing into Facebook, Twitter or Typapad so THAT is an issue that seriously limits comments during the day.

IMO, U both have valid points. 86 needs Canespace to be a fun sideline again instead of a headache inducing, stressful 2nd j-o-b. Solar - U r correct in that most of the old, original crew have either moved elsewhere or otherwise detached somewhat from blogging. This changing dynamic can be both good and bad depending on perspective. New blood is almost always good, but the flavor and debates/discussions that we used to enjoy have changed.

I cannot speak for anyone but myself; but a lot of things changed over the last few years with my work and personal life, all of which have conspired to reduce the amount of time I spend blogging. I still get on as much as I can and read ALL the articles, but its true that I don't post anywhere near as often as I used to.

Also, for me; I invested emotionally in the hiring and success of Randy. Seeing his tenure play out the way it did was depressing and now I'm more guarded. I think I'm a voice of reason when it comes to judging coaching performances too quickly, but I'm also not ready to jump on anyone's bandwagon until I see proof on the playing field. Well...I confess...I'd probably have jumped all over Leach's bandwagon if he'd been hired. Our D would still have sucked, but we'd have outscored just about everyone on the schedule!

It seems like somewhere a line was crossed and the tone of many of the debates changed into a "I'm right, no matter what, and I see every situation as proof of such". Instead of a give-n-take where Canespacers actually thought about what others said and considered a different POV from their own. When bloggers get like that, there's no point in commenting so the number of posts dwindles. And, fewer new bloggers bother taking the time to post.

As to the Typepad thing...if that is what is keeping people away, I have no sympathy. I signed up with Typepad at the start because it's EASIER to post when it keeps U signed in. There was no Facebook requirement; it was thru Typepad directly and all that was needed was a valid email address. It takes less effort than 1/2 the posts I read.

Finally, I hope Solarcane will consider coming around and posting again. IMO the blog benefits from your perspective. Peace

raizecane


Agreed, but isn't it like this every off-season?

Pretty much every year........and I feel left out by not making Solar's list.....haha.

Happy Holidays to you and the family Mr. Solar

Maybe they have changed procedures? I've always used the same one, so wouldn't be aware. Maybe Facebook bought Typepad? LOL They certainly have the means.

I'd feel put-out if I was forced to do this thru Facebook. I don't sign into Facebook very often and don't want to start.

So, if this is what Typepad is forcing people to do, I guess some sympathy is warranted...

UMike

DTX..that is what Im thinking..it definitely SEEMS to have changed..I didnt want my full name on display..and I wasnt able to do anything..or didnt want to anyway until I realized I signed up a while back...check it out for yourself..log-out and return..no option but to use facebook

Seems more prudent to trust U and stay logged in until they force me out. lol

86Cane

Solar...good to see U around. I only wish that if you had something constructive to say about the blog you would email me or call me you have both contact options. But since U decided to go straight to the blog then I will respond here as well.

First of all U know that blogging in general has changed GREATLY over the last 3-5 years. First was there was the Facebook explosion, then the great blog divorce here at Canespace, and now in the last year or so the incredible explosion of Twitter that has made most blogs obsolete.

Second of all the losing, losing and MORE losing has hurt the blog as well as the entire CaneNation. People don't want to listen to the bitching and moaning for 6 years straight now do they? That is obvious.

Thirdly people move on, they have lives and they find different interests and ways to use their time.

But just like your self imposed departure from Canespace the disappearance of most of the bloggers you mentioned have absolutely NOTHING to do with the new format of the blog and you know that.

If I have to point it out to you then here goes. Let's break it down one by one shall we?

1. Mh, pb, calvin, cav, Truth, JSQ, canes1, bg1906, canechic excluded from Canespace.

NOT EXACTLY: MH, pb and Cavaleer haven't been on here for over three or four years now and don't blog anywhere. None of them were ever banned they simply stopped blogging.

Canes1 is welcome anytime at Canespace and he does drive bys every now and then. I saw him at the USF game and we chatted for a while about the "good old days".

bg1906 can come by anytime he wants but he is busy doing other things at other sites and on the radio.

Calvin is old news. He was banned over two years ago for bashing UM players at the request of MM01 who later left with his Dad RandyCane and now neither blogs at any of the free sites.

JSQ and The Truth are also old news and had to go for valid reasons and you know why. Oh and BTW "The Truth" no longer blogs at any site after having a major falling out with the JSQ a few months back.

Canechic had to go because as U know she became negative beyond reason and losing touch with reality from week to week ("Canes wil never win another game, Canes will win every game this season"). That is on her not the blog.

2. Six, hurri, daytoncane, KL canefan, autumn, canescanescanes, estaban, sailorcane and others deciding to spend their time at other sports blogs.

That is their choice, no harm no foul. The "other" sports blog has a crew of about 8-10 regulars and that's all. Of all of those you mentioned only Six is a big loss for this blog as most of the other hardly blog a lot or about add much content.

3. VaCane, ocala, djmoonbat, MaryLou, fran, DTC, roach, Alph, old skool,matt,CGNC and others posting 1/4 as much as they did.

That is all for various well known and valid reasons in each case is different.

OcalaCane got married and is taking care of three young children and opened his own business a year ago he has not a minute to breathe.

Fran has had severe health and medical problems and MaryLou is in the same situation. Neither ever blogged a lot anyway as they both have lives to live.

MattinNY, Alph and Old skool never blogged a lot before or now. They read everyday but post occasionally that is all.

VACane, CGNC, Roach, DTC and others still post comments all the time.

The new rules had to be put in place to filter out the trolls and the negativity. Since I am here running the blog on my own it had to be done so at least the remaining few could have a FUN experience instead of the negativity that polluted the blog day and night.

Solar...thanks for your many contributions to Canespace. Let's remember that U left the blog on your own because of all of the negativity and by your own choice to go "outside and play".

Now U come back just to complain about it and act like this is "news" and that the few people who left the blog over the last 4 years did so as a result of recent format changes or too many rules.

The two things are completely unrelated and you know it. And, if people don't want to follow a few rules then so be it.

Here they are:

1. This is a Miami Hurricane sports blog. Let's talk about UM sports and sports in general with the occasional "off topic" comment.

2. Be respectful, be productive and try to be fair and balanced in your comments.

3. Sign in through Facebook, Twitter or Typepad so we can weed out the trolls.

Is that so hard to follow? We would ALL love to have you around the blog if those rules are not too unbearable for U?

BLOG ON!

That is not true. I have Facebook, Twitter and Typepad and can log in through ANY of them, including Typepad as I am right now!

UMike

SOUP...you have inspired me to try something. I'm going to start a blog..NOT A CANES BLOG..but a local sports blog covering the youth, middle school and high school sports in my area. I want to be around and involved with the kids..close to the action..and once I get enough traffic I am gong to seek to make money from advertisers...the "Academy Sports" of the world etc..I think that would be very cool

Same here. I actually get my cookies scrubbed by the company and have to log in to Typepad every once in a while, and have no trouble.

Do the same on my iPhone too, and it logs me right in.

UMike, is it possibly an issue with a firewall setting or something if U are using a home PC? I don't know much about computers, but I know enough to be dangerous. Lol

86Cane

U go UMike, U go man!

UMike

Ohio..no..nothing with my system...if you are completely logged out and go to Typepad, the ONLY way to register for a Typepad account is to do it through your facebook account.

Congratulations to @MiamiWBB, who jumped from No. 9 to No. 7 in the newest AP Poll released on Monday

Sebastian

Whoa!!!

Solar coming in and doing a drive by

Speaking for myself I didnt get involved with alot of discussions that went on with many of the bloggers named because I knew what it was going to lead to

After a few posts about something then you can be sure the insults would start flying around and instead of an adult conversation about the subject that subject was totally ignored and became about who was tougher when typing on a computer

I can speak for two bloggers I thought crossed the line for me. Calvin(besides his 5 mile posts LOL)was when he went on full attack against Jason Fox. Fox took time to sit down for an interview and Calvin just hammered everything about him. A very classless move if you ask me(which nobody has)

Canechic was always fun to talk Marlins baseball with since I am a fan of baseball. When she called a friend of mine a "racist" on here is the 1st time I ever was really upset with anything she ever said. Thats my main man and I just couldnt let that comment slide

It all about the `Canes

Lets go `Canes

Sebastian - what is your opinion of the new Marlins' ballpark (RIP OB) and current spending spree? Is there a market for baseball in S.FL? And...whats the deal with the new logo?!?

Since the Marlins weren't around when I was growing up in S.FL, I've always been a "casual" fan only. I was excited when they managed to win, not 1 but, 2 World Series! But didn't grow into a more serious fan because of the ownership's actions following those championships - dismantling champ teams is a great way to piss off fans!

Awil80

FTM here....so any word on any recruits this past weekend?

DallasTX Cane

Posted by: UMike | December 12, 2011 at 01:44 PM

I don't follow much youth sports, other than my daughter's soccer (she's currently on the top team in her age group in N.TX's ODP program). BUT...I know a lot of others do, especially as college recruiting is concerned. U may want to consider a recruiting slant to your blog - NOT from any individual school's perspective, but from the local athlete's perspective. So, you'd cover ALL recruiting for your local area not just the kids focused on UM (for example). Just a thought as people do get really worked up about recruiting...

LM6 will be missed...

It's Duke Johnson time!! Praying he sticks with his commitment.

That's what I hear. Still praying. Lol

Sebastian

IMO the Marlins will do whatever it takes to make sure their new stadium is packed

The 1st year fans will come out but after that its going to drop fast

I dont know whats in these players contracts that they just signed but if they done have no-trade clauses then expect another Marlins great sell off after 2 years

Buehrle will give the starting rotation some much needed innings. Reyes is injury prone and closer Heath Bell is better then what they had

Now if they could just trade Hanley for some pitching and maybe a CF they will have a chance at 1 of the 2 Wild Card spots

The best part is going to be listening to Ozzie go on his rants in the pressers LOL

Awil80

ohio, you hearing anything on the recruits from this past weekend?

Lamar Miller to NFL. Expected. Coach Golden has been recruiting for weeks to fill the need. We will bring in 3 RBs this year. #NFL #Draft

UMike

Awil80..according to a few people..we should of or did get at least 2 commitments from this weekend..although none have been made public. That is just from little tidbits here and there I picked up

Not yet, visits were still going on until last night. Will post as I hear/read

Sebastian

Even though Smiley didnt have the type of season `Cane fans had hoped for having him for next year is a very big deal

Smiley could put up 1,000 if he can just stay healthy. He is a hard runner that will wear defenses down

UMike

PapaCane eluded to some upcoming "Welcome to the U"..and I believe Dewey stated the same to Rivals. Of course..nothing confirmed as of yet

UMike

Sebastian..if he is healthy and doesnt dance he could go for 1,500 imo

Posted by: DallasTX Cane | December 12, 2011 at 02:32 PM

The new ballpark is GREAT! I went by there a few weeks ago and it looks marvelous darling. I'll go when I am in town for work but I do NOT see people coming from Broward or Palm Beach County on a weeknight in rush hour traffic to attend many games.

IMHO it will turn out to be the biggest WASTE of $$$ ever by the City of Miami. They will do fine for attendance for the first 1-3 years then nada.

They built a BUNCH of store fronts at the street level under the parking garages and guess how many they have leased out as of today? ZERO, that's right ZERO!

Hate the new logo. I think the design is too busy and the colors are atrocious.

The Dude

Hopefully Lamar lands in round one.

Sebastian

Alot of his dancing had to do with his foot-toe injury

That type of injury makes it almost impossible to push off to get started. He was much more effective when the play called for him to just blast straight ahead

I give him credit for going out there each week and not sitting any games out. He could have easily done that

Awil80

so are soup and 86 the same person?

86Cane

Everybody knew that Miller was gone to the NFLU, no surprise there. We will be fine at RB with Smiley, Clements, Duke, Danny Dillard and prolly one more I am forgetting?

DallasTX Cane

so are soup and 86 the same person?

Posted by: Awil80 | December 12, 2011 at 03:12 PM


Yes. He was originally 86 and that remains a "more serious" persona. SOUP is a little bit of a nutcase and has problems being taken seriously by others. lol
