Shark

We're beating Boston College!!

TheWhat

Reading that article got me excited. I still say 7-6 or 8-5 but it will be similar to last season where we were in every single game. I think we need one more year for this team to be where it really needs to be in terms of depth, talent, strength and conditioning. We are getting there, and I believe faster than other people believe but not quite there. Almost though and its exciting.

NativeCane

Great article SOUP, there is much reason to be optimistic and it will be awesome to watch the naysayers eat their words.

Go Canes!!!

Terrance Sullivan

Great article. I predict our Canes will go 8-4 regular season with a chance to win up to 10 games, I am including a ACC championship game and bowl game apperance so I say either 9-5 or 10-4.

Willie Will in Nashville

I say it'll be a tough 12-0 this year, then next year we'll be back to going 12-0 easy like back in da day. That is all!!!!

TheWhat

Antonio Cromartie has 12 kids??? 8 with 7 different women??? 4 with his wife.

Advice for Antonio. Keep it in the pants or just use protection. Is it that hard?

That's what she said!

herbieibis

Again I'll say 7-5. We are 2 young and there are 2 many question marks that surround our offense, Like who ends up being a go to receiver, will there be consistancy at the RB position, can the O-Line, stop the dumb penalties. There is plenty of help on the way but carrot raw. I think the Defense will be improved but until I actually see a consistant pass rush, we will get abused through the air. I only say this because of three names McGee, Telemaque & Armstrong, who up until now haven't done much. Here's hoping they prove me wrong!

Ohio_Cane

"The move of Denzel Perryman to the middle, a move I was initially openly skeptical about, proved to be without a doubt the best position switch among many made by Defensive Coordinator Mark D'Onofrio this Spring."

Gonna say this AGAIN... I called this move before the coaching staff pulled the trigger!

Last year he was a small Sean Spence. Lacked the size, but great tackler, very smart and instinctive player.

This year, he's BIGGER than Sean Spence as a Senior!

Really good article. We are a year away, but the horses are in the stable now we just got to ride them

Hey there old buddy, old pal! We went to Edward Medard Park over in your neck of the woods recently. Do U know where that is at and is it close to you? We are going back again soon, they have a frisbee disc golf course there that is awesome.

U did, U did! I didn't give U the credit U deserved but hey at least I was honest about my thoughts on it right? LOL

Terrance...sorry I missed U at the Spring Game. My plans got all screwed up because I had the wifey with me and we did not stay at the Hampton Inn as originally planned and stayed in Holloywood instead

Hope to catch up wioth you during the season when I will be at the Hampton and at Duffys.

orange 'n green in the vein

Golden already finagled a BS extension for a horrible year and a sub-par coaching job at Miami last year. 6-6 = lifetime extension at Temple (in the old Big East mind you, not the, "we'll take anybody with a football program," modern Big East), not in Coral Gables. If he doesn't win big this year, the clock starts ticking as soon as the college roommate gets the can in the off-season.

Honestly, I'm not sweating anything until after game one, plenty of time to iron it all out and get it right on the field, amongst the roster, and in the coaching offices. Cheerleaders = championship week form and that's still all that matters this time of year.

Gin & Tonic

Fantastic article. One of the best yet. Inspired me to make a comment. Great work, keep it up!

-------------------------------------------

Absolutely!! That's all A blogger can ask for is honesty. Otherwise we'd all always agree and it wouldn't be as much fun to be right, like I happened to be about Perryman to MLB!!

Lol, ok that's seriously the last time I say it.

Montreal-Cane

SOUP the Herald should make you an offer...
Your articles are excellent and informative.
But now this:

"There are several surprises involving Crawford, and even possibly another player (who shall go unmentioned), that await opposing teams and UM fans come this Fall when the games actually matter.

Trust me on this."

SOUP it's unfair for the faithful canespacers to be left in the dark with this tease. I don't think i will be able to live until the fall without knowing what you know...lol....

Ohio_Cane

Monty, honestly, U can probably guess once and be right.

SOUP

Posted by: Hassan | April 17, 2012 at 04:55 PM

There IT is right there.

Canezitis

Is crow our version of tebow soup?

SOUP

Monty...here IT is: There are three very distinct possibilities in addition to Crawford for the Wildcat-like package.

One is a WR that has already been tried and worked pretty well and one that will be tried by a recruit not yet on campus.

In addition there is a current QB that may also run some other package like Canezitis mentioned above.

Now let's see how long it takes ITU or CS to run with that? LOL

SOUP

WURD UP!

1. Yo CEO, I get hit with somethin about 1 of your boiz sayin Howard bout to be startin in game 1. Now thats reachin out with a bigtime shot call lol. Come on bruh, that boi gotz to make a better shot call then that lol. Dont go all Hassan(?) by claimin that country azz boi Taylor will be a 4 time all american and 1st pick in NFLU draft lol but at least that boi took a legit shot call. I guess boi aint livin in Florida accordin to the email so pimp does get a free pass huh lol.

2. Since its a D thing someone could always take a rip with Nate, not as a starter but a boi with serious skillz that should contribute.

3. No focus on them O boiz slidin to Miami???? I know who we gotz but holla at them Spacers so I can hear from Newt who they got. I aint talkin startin but I want some hits bout some O boiz bein factors. I done instructed Newt to blast me any Duke or "beast" comments lol.

4. Could that boi Danny D. be the next 1,100 + RB. Thats just insane or is it lol.

5. Will D'Mauri be the next RaShawn? I know I heard that somewhere lol

roachcane77

Really nice article... I too believe the naysayers and band wagon "experts" will be eating some crow when we go full bore in the Fall.

It's also true, we don't look very "physically" imposing right now, (my own observations from the Ft. Myers scrimmage), but with SO much great talent waiting to come in, we'll get there sooner rather than later.

I must say though, I'm getting real tired of hearing how we're only using half of our offensive playbook... REAL TIRED of hearing that. (It's been literally YEARS now that I've been hearing that!) Get the correct personnel in here, train & educate them, and OPEN UP THE PLAYBOOK ALREADY!

Let's Go CANES!

NativeCane


Hey there old buddy, old pal! We went to Edward Medard Park over in your neck of the woods recently. Do U know where that is at and is it close to you? We are going back again soon, they have a frisbee disc golf course there that is awesome.

5 minutes from my house, Dude bring your kayak and we'll do some up close gator watching. I have been eyeballing that frisbee golf course, I'd like to try that out. LOL

Go Canes!!!

Go Canes!!!

TonyCane

I mean this in a positive way...how is our talent situation different now than in 2008? Four years ago the bulk of our most talented players were incoming freshmen. As it is now.

The only difference is that we have a quarterback who has starting experience (Morris), while in 2008 we had two freshmen quarterbacks.

Canes go 7-5 to 9-4.

SOUP

Native... I got U buddy. I will email you next time in the area. Re-send me your phone number to:

canespace86@aol.com

SOUP

SKREETZ WALKIN...

1. Got that comment about lack of playbook bein used. Preach it from the mountains bruh cause this boi agrees Fisch and Al needed to let the boiz somewhat loose. I get why they did it but I didnt like it.

2. As for during the season it was at maybe, maybe 40% for Morris vs the Terps cause he didnt have the rest straight.

2. The playbook was wide open the rest of the year but when teams figure out the play as soon as Miamis O does then theres issues. Again I believe them Spacers can figure that out.

SOUP

Canes go 7-5 to 9-4.

Posted by: TonyCane | April 17, 2012 at 09:02 PM

Tony...U don't get a range, U gotta pick a number and stick to it.

I got 9-3. What U got?

Ohio_Cane

At least my Tracy Howard pick got me a mention from Da Skreetz!! Lol

Come on now, gimme some credit, I called... Oh wait, I said I wouldn't say that any more!! Haha!

I'm stickin to it, Skreetz! Love it or hate it, that's my guess.

SOUP

Denzel Perryman!

TonyCane

Realistically, I'm going to say 8-4. Golden is the real deal, and by next year the foundation will be set.

Of course, I want 12-0 but that's for 2013...

SOUP

Of course, I want 12-0 but that's for 2013.

Tony...I like your style!

TonyCane

Thanks!

On a separate note, I wonder if Nick Saban is busy gluing his crystal football back together, like the dad in Christmas Story?

TheWhat

I think I just realized why everyone myself included were freaking out after the spring game. Penalties by the O-line and dropped passes and INTs. Basically it was looking at the last 4 years all over again. We as a fan base are traumatized from the last 4 years. We can't take anymore dropped passes or false starts or INTs. We are scarred and once those things occur we over react. Although it was only a spring game and we should keep it in perspective, we can't help but be sensitive to the aforementioned mistakes. I believe those mistakes will for the most part be gone come this fall.

Soup you've made me a believer and so I am going with a solid 8 win season. Final prediction.

Go Canes

SOUP

TheWhat...U made a wise decision to get on the train NOW because it is leaving the station and it ain't coming back to pick up the LATE arrivals.

TheWhat

Oh and it's been more than 4 years that has traumatized us. I just like to forget the Coker era after the two NC games. Can you imagine how many NCs we would have if butch Davis stayed.

Montreal-Cane

I hope Duke is in the weight room every day because we will need him right away and you better hold on to the football Randy.The running game needs you now!

Panthers lead their series 2-1...Hey hockey fans in Miami you will have to buy some more plastic rats for the playoffs.

Let's go Panthers!

SOUP

Posted by: TonyCane | April 17, 2012 at 10:21 PM

Saban ain't gluing shyte, he is busy counting his $$$.

SOUP

Monty...I still got some of my RATS from the last time when I still lived in SoFl.

I never got the chance to throw them ALL.

The Year of the Rat lives on...GO PANTHERS!

SOUP

We MAY have a live chat tomorrow night with Susan Miller Degnan from the MH and Brandon Odoi from Canesinsider...details to follow.

TonyCane

Somehow, I picture Saban has a huge vault with his various LSU, Dolphins, and Alabama earnings stacked in a huge pyramid, like the Joker did in the hold of that ship in The Dark Knight.

Kudos to putting the trophy on an easily accesible mount where anyone can knock it over. It's like Washington DC taking out the Declaration of Independence and tacking it up with tape to some light post.

orange 'n green in the vein

You know, I hate to be, "that guy," who complains that the refs stole games from teams I cheer for, but when there's eight goals scored and the refs decide to only count seven of them in a one goal final margin game, one team got hosed by the guys in the stripes. As soon as the NHL's best regular season penalty kill in history shows up off the team bus for the Devils this thing is over any way and I'll be there for game five when New Jersey puts themselves in a position to clinch the series with a win regardless.

SOUP

Susan from the Miami Herald is confirmed for tomorrow night's LIVE chat between 8 PM and 9:30 PM.

SOUP

OGV...Please, do NOT be "that guy". LOL

Panthers all the way baby!

Q

Howard is my LOF .. KIDS A STUD !

TheWhat

Just read the gave terry story. WOW. What a phenomenal and powerful story. God bless you Gabe. I remember when I saw his tape after he committed to the U and I honestly felt and sensed that he was going to be special (I know nothing about evaluating players, it was just a strong feeling) and after reading his story I have no doubt that not only will gave terry be special he is going to be a leader and future NFLer. May he continue to find great success on and off the field.

His story is proof that under privileged kids when given the opportunity can and will succeed.

TheWhat

Damn auto correct. I meant Gabe Terry not gave terry
