So, what's happening Monday?

Mcginns ale house

Thinking of a placing a bet solar...can we cover 7 wins?

Mcginns ale house

The bet is sizable, would like to hear how we will win seven.
Thanks

Mcginns ale house

That's open question to all canes fans? Thanks

Scott

Not to sound "condescending"... but I will enjoy remembering this article when we beat you again, and again, and.... again. If it's any consolation, I don't dislike the Miami team or fans at all. I love Miami "sure bet" win week. See you I'm the green! :)

The What

Nice article. Didn't we steal Lockhart from VT as well? Or am I wrong on that? Times a changin. We had that game last year and ahould have won it. There is a shift in the ACC and we are finally going to take our spot as the dominant team in the ACC and college football.

McGinnis, I think we will get to 7 wins.

Last season - average strength, below average heart, experience, lack of developed players, lack of interest/no motivation, NCAA sanctions

This season - Inexperience/youth, physically stronger, mentally stronger, more heart, more acclimated to system, no more drama, better team chemistry, competition for each position.

Compare the two and I say you will get 7 wins. I truly believe we will get to 8 potentially 9 but safe bet is 7. Among our victories will be hated VT.

solarcane

Mc,
I wouldn't bet on us winning 7 games at this particular moment. Like everyone here I think we will be in every game and if we got all the calls and all the breaks every game we could pull an upset and maybe finish with 7 or even 8 wins.
I'm not sold on our offense putting up a ton of points but if D Johnson could be what we thought Bryce Brown was going to be who knows.

Scott...please tell us more?

Solar...U have the record with the MOST firsts ever in the history of Canespace. And now that U are back in action there is no hope for the rest of them! LOL

86Cane

WURD ON DA SKREETZ IZ:

1. I guess I forgot to add Standish as a ballah that Al will have to keep workin to make sure he inks with Miami. What that ballah did at that camp was straight nasty. He just to da&# good to not have teams still comin after him. That boi is yoked the f up and could still put on 15lbs of pure muscle. Hes that type that could roll into the Gables and contribute right away. Aint no RS n that boi.

2. Before everyone gets all hyped with little Olsen just remember hes throwin to NJ speed and aint ready for Miami speed yet on either side of the ball.

*****************************************

Speaking of which...I am going to start making plans on what game we are attending this year so let me know what home games you plan on attending so we can meet up.

86Cane

Raize...VT or FSWho?

raizecane

Not sure which game....need to get with the homies and see which one they can attend. FSU is going to be crazy from parking to finding decent seats for decent price.

So what's happening Monday??

This article really fails to understand VT. It is not in Northwestern Virginia, it is in Southwestern Virginia. In VA, there are two big state schools, the University of Virginia, which is a state school but caters to the elite. There is no VSU, ala FSU, but VT.

VT is the state school that the overwhelming number of good but not great students attend. A large number of these students come from the Northern Virginia/DC suburbs area. It is 4 hours from home so that a student can be a student but not so far away that kids get homesick.

There are many other excellent schools in the area of No/VA, in DC and Maryland but these are not state schools that participate in the VA pre-paid tuition program and so alot of students go to VT.

In SW Virginia, you have a wasteland of entertainment. You can drive on the interstate, I-81, and see signs that the area is a technology corridor, and there is not a building in site for miles. So college football is the ONLY game in town, and it is a BIG DEAL. They don't hate Miami personally, like UF fans do, and to a lesser extend FSU fans do. They just hate any opponent. That is a key difference in the rivalry.

Besides the DC area, VT recruits primarily the Virginia tidewater area, which is the southern east coast of Virginia. This is where Michael Vick came from. It is extremely poor part of the state and equivalent to Overtown or Liberty City except many of the recruits may be military kids. They also recruit heavily in North Virginia and Richmond.

Yes, Beamer will occasionally try to find a nugget in Florida but that isn't his standard Method of Operation. I am sure he was disappointed in losing Blue but it wasn't as big a deal as the article implies.

Beamer has great coaches. Period. And he is a great coach. The reason the balance of power has changed recently is we haven't matched it. When the QB ran for 20 yards on a fourth down QB sneak last year, it proved we still can't match his coaches. Hopefully, next year the talent will match the coaching.

Please don't demean VT and make it sound like UF or FSU. It is not. Plus, why do we need to hate and not respect our opponents? In our prime, we didn't hate anyone, we just fielded the better team. That should be our goal.

It's worth.

I liked your comment and saw you made several keen observations that were helpful. That was until I got up to this point.

This is where your train completely derailed. IF U talk to former players they will tell U that Miami's success was fueled by hate. Hatred of losing, hatred of the other team and the player lined up across from U. The players at UM went from hating losing more than anything else in the world and being completely devastated after a loss to saying: "Well the other team has players on scholarship too."

U might have heard a little something about Miami's "Us against the world mentality" back in the day? Well that all came from hating and being hated.

They had a saying: "EMBRACE THE HATE".

Some players have gone as far as to say that the reason Miami is losing over the last 6-8 years is that the players don't hate anything. They don't hate losing, they don't hate their opponent, they don't hate anything. A few former players have said that until Miami's players learn to embrace the hate they will not win again.

I know that sitting there on your high and mighty, holier than thou throne it may sound childish or petty but like it or not it is true that hate was and is the basis of little old Miami's success over the years.

EMBRACE THE HATE!

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Turkey shoot for charity

Scott, I'm directing a performance of Richard McBeef for the stage, I'd like to offer you the lead roll in it.

Papa Cane - 2014 WR Ermon Lane, an elite prospect out of Homestead, was offered by Alabama yesterday. FSU is his next stop. Expect same. Miami leads.

Ale House...check your email, I replied.

CaneRock

Ohhhhh uhhhh, I won't say I hate VT...but I will saaaaay uhhh...PHUCK EM'!!! PHUCK EM'!!! is worse than hate, 10Xs WORSE!
I hate VT, more than I hate FSU,UF, and ND COMBINED!!!
And DeAngelo Hall is a SUCKA!, running up on A.Rolle when He was on crutches, on the sidelines, ya'll remember that.
They're fans are SUCKAS! to, if I recall correctly, they're the ones that dropped a beer keg on Randy Shannon's when He was the DC.
And ScarFace<------Shout out to my dawg OGV)is a SUCKA! to, slapping that young man on national TV, and allowing His ACs to threaten a teenager because He didn't want to go to your SUCKA-ASS! school.
In summary PHUCK!!! VT, and everything that they stand for.

Smells like Randy Shannon to me. Looks like that cupcake schedule is already causing problems?

This team more than any gives the reason why, a good stable coaching staff, helps teams win. AAH, Va Tech our albetros. If anything can go wrong, it does when we play these guys. They win, not so much with great talent, it's the coaching and they live off other teams mistakes, especially us. We look like punch drunks on dollar day. I watched us play them back, i believe back in 2002 or 03, in Blacksburg. They had aproximately 190 yds total offense for the game, we had somewhere near 325 and we get hosed 31-7. Hell even Marcus Vick threw a TD on Sean T, that game and I'm sure everyone remembers Everetts drop in the endzone when he was wide open. Last year for once we actually played a descent game offensively, only to see our dee- be a sieve. Anyway, you guys no the scoop.This dude wanted me to give his 3 year old a high 5, when they scored on us, even stuck him in my face. Little did he know, I was about another beer short of knocking them crubs on little Johnnie's bib down his throat, Nah I wouldn't of done that but they are irritating and listening to than dam gobbling all night, stinks!
They win because they don't lose games very often that they should win, unlike us and there're going to win 8 to 10 games most years, as long as Beamer is their and his lifers coaching staff stays put but they will never be us and win ships, they can only sniff and that's what winning 10 games is, sniffing.
