Go Canes. Happy CEO but for real Stephen Morris will be talked about on all the cfb shows ESPN and ESPNU have after we are 6-0. I am not a kool aid drinker either. Just someone who goes to games and spring games. when I saw them this spring I called my cousin and strated snapping pictures at the size of the players compared to the last 4 years. They look like the team I saw play in 03' we shouldplayed for NC had coker decided to let Brock take 65% of his snaps in the gun. I could go on and on. Thats why I don't post CEO

High praise from former UM king:

Schnellenberger: "That's the best-looking squad I've ever seen in my life physically...expect them to be damn good". http://t.co/1usawEQE

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | August 27, 2012 at 09:41 PM

I never heard Schnelly say that before. I agree. I have actually seen the upper classmen and freshmen Canes physically develop and grow over the last year. Golden will have us all believing after that Canes trip Boston. The Canes may be favored, but I still see it as a challenge because they are a young team on the road without much experience. If the Canes play well, it will be a great season for Golden.

Laquinton

Look at the size of Perryman, look how slim Seantrel is... utough is something else. Also Miami isnt favored. But that's how they skills want it., i'm saying 8-4, 9-3

Anthonyjmanis

Who Stephn Morris jr Mike jame sr etc etc its not like every postion will be frosh and thier back ups too. Whats R.Kelly say age ain't nothing but a number. Now that I know were you guys kick it at (the hampton inn). I can quit driving back to the 352 after games and kick some butt in triva. I'm an 80's baby but I know my CANES.

Miami favored by 2.5

Hassan

BC is starting a Converted S at CB, he has almost no experience there and has not practiced there much. Sean Sylvia is his name and I look for Morris to test him early.

WWIN

We could always start an Eddie George divorce pool. Maybe add an over/under and give OSU memorabilia or replica of a Heisman cut in half to the winner. Call it the Eddie award.

Posted by: Old Skool | August 28, 2012 at 05:47 PM

I don't think that'll do it, it might help him, cuz "Fall Down Eddie " as we call him in Titans land is known for being wit men

orange 'n green in the vein

/\/\/\

So, that's 'Fall Down(low) Eddie' around Nashville is what you're saying Willie Will?

CEO

QUESTIONS FROM FANS:

TSULLY76: 86 can you ask Chris and others could they get the pricing of the tickets, parking, etc out earlier than they do normally. I know some of it is predicated on the ACC and scheduling, but for us Canes fans that live outside of South Florida or even out of state the more time we have the better to get things together. Like Hotel stays etc. Our Canes have a national following.

CF: SUGGESTION IS NOTED AND I WILL ADDRESS WITH OUR TEAM. WE HAVE LOTS OF NEW FACES THAT ARE READY TO EXECUTE AT A HIGHER LEVEL.

86CANE: How about a 10% discount or maybe a free upgrade NEXT year for people who live outside of the State of Florida IF they purchase season tickets? Kind of like what U did for the Fort Myers crowd this year? The out-of-State folks have to spend travel money and hotels, etc. so 10% off would be a nice gesture even if it is not a huge savings.

CF: THAT'S AN IDEA WORTH EXPLORING, AND ESPECIALLY IF THAT ENSURES THAT THAT AN OUT-OF-STATE-FAN IS AT EVERY GAME. WE WERE WORKING OUT A DEAL FOR FANS FROM SW FL THAT INCLUDED A FREE GAS CARD WITH SEASON TICKET PURCHASES BUT COULD NOT GET IT DONE. MAYBE NEXT SEASON.

Montreal-Cane

Golden said the injured players list was published. Anyone has seen it?

Please post it here.

Anthonyjmanis

O yes Herbstriet their will be mayhem if I win the allstate contest

WWIN

OGV,

Yeah lol. "Fall Down Eddie" on the field and "Lay Down Low Eddie" off the field. I think that's why he just started falling down with nobody around him, he wanted the defense to pile up on him

LB

"Its not called being realistic, it's call telling the future. Tell us the weather for those games we'll be losing also??"

Which do you want, Willie Will? Do you want me to comment on how I didn't predict losses, but exposed opponents' strengths (after I previously defined their weaknesses)? Or do you want me to comment on silly connotations?

Since when is criticism and free thinking a bad thing? I want UM to win as badly as anyone...

...but grow up, people. Sheesh.

LB

Eddie George:

"“The thing about Miami is, the kids there, they’re kinda caught in the culture of ‘We are The U.’ They kinda just feel like they can just go out there and they’ll bow down to what they used to do.

" ... Al Golden is trying to change the culture by holding guys accountable and keeping them there and working with them to say hey, the days of The U are done. Now it’s time for you to create your own image. That’s part of the issue there."

If Miami isn't "the U," then I propose changing the school's logo and giving it to someone else.

Looks like the silliness infected all kinds today. Night, night.

orange 'n green in the vein

I just want Willie Will to pay me $3.99/minute next year for my predictions or 'telling the future' after what I'm telling him comes to pass in 2012.

HawaiiCane

Well then I guess after thier 7-6 season, Ohio State should no longer be able to refer to themselves as...

"THE Ohio State University".

That title can be give to the 10-4 Bobcats of...

"THE Ohio University"!

j.w.

Thanks as always, CEO

WWIN

...12-0? Please don't be that guy. Why are 7 to 9 wins so terrible? Can someone explain that to me? Al Golden is a great coach and I absolutely believe that his teams are destined for GREATNESS by philosophy alone. But we've got some ways to get there.Rome wasn't constructed in a day, nor are the Golden Canes. Please remember that.

Sincerely,
Realistic Optimist

Posted by: LB | August 28, 2012 at 03:03 PM

That's what you posted, so if you saying 12-0 is crazy then that means you are saying we are going to lose.

Before the season started last year people thought the ohio state game would be tough and we would lose but who knew they would be without their head coach, starting qb and rb??? By game time they didn't look so tough. So nobody knows how hard a game will be until game time. For all we know fsu could lose their whole first team defense to injuries or suspensions by the time we play em. Nobody thought clemson would do anything last year cuz they were young but they almost went undefeated and could have went undefeated, and I think their best wr was a freshman (no way a freshman wr could be one of the best in the nation as a freshman, that could never happen right). Al golden knows the strengths and weaknesses of his opponents too but I but he doesn't think 12-0 is crazy and you wouldn't want him to think that but it's OK for you to think that? As a fan you should never predict your team to lose no matter what. You got to BELIEVE and have FAITH cuz anything can happen on any given Saturday, your team has a 50/50 chance just like the other team, so I say believe in wins until proven other wise.

Tsully76

Tsully76

86 See ya Friday September 14th at Duffy's.

3 days till Gameday. The Miami Hurricanes is blowing up I-95 and gonna hit the Boston College Eagles at 3:30pm on Saturday. Go Canes beat BC.

Dude on a Pale Horse

If we had a vote here, on who is your favorite Cane as a person, how much of the vote would Mike James get?

Dude on a Pale Horse

I want Mike James to coach for us some day.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Mike James is gonna impress the hell out of coaches at the combine.

Tsully76

So I imagine Coach Golden will release the final depth chart today. Should be interesting to see the final 2 deep for the season opener against BC.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Chickillo is a bonefide meathead. Love the kid. The interview with Denzel was good too. I love the look on his face when they tell hi his run D is bad, lol.

I usually play in 3 leagues each year.....

why you ask? ...cash payouts :-) and bragging rights.

LB

"That's what you posted, so if you saying 12-0 is crazy then that means you are saying we are going to lose."

Your connotations are incorrect. You preface it by thinking I'm down on the team. You're wrong. Ask around.

"As a fan you should never predict your team to lose no matter what. You got to BELIEVE and have FAITH cuz anything can happen on any given Saturday, your team has a 50/50 chance just like the other team, so I say believe in wins until proven other wise."

Some people also believe that Santa Claus would make an excellent Presidential candidate (I may write that down somewhere). Feel free to believe whatever you want...

...it has no effect on your team whatsoever.

Fans have little effect on the team unless the architecture which encompasses it starts to get uncomfortable. When revenues started to die, Donna put a foot in Randy's rear end. When people stopped showing up to games and threatened to stop buying tickets, that's when a good coach got hired.

When good coaching came, UM became competitive (2011). I absolutely believe that an Al Golden team will go 12-0, but not now. If you think so, then you absolutely have no perspective.

Is there some kind of law that says you have to live in a bong-induced coma? Yes, I've heard the line about winning. It even made its way into a film title (Any Given Sunday). Delusional fanbases don't help at all. 12-0 is ridiculous. 4-8 is idiotic.

Truthtellers are often reviled, and I absolutely accept being the prick who bursts your bubble.

Again, I love Al Golden. He's going to make this team a beast. Temper unrealistic expectations.

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

"If we had a vote here, on who is your favorite Cane as a person, how much of the vote would Mike James get?"

He's got my vote for a person and a player, and +1 for your suggestion of making him a coach someday.

He's a FANTASTIC dude.

I wish we had him for 4 more years. Seriously. He's truly a complete back. Fast, powerful, good blocker, soft hands, and even was a returner. He's got it all. A great person.

And he's mentoring Duke Johnson.

"How many people here play fantasy football?

I play in one league. I have little clue of what I'm doing, and I do it because I am psychotic. I make pop culture references and try to be funny, but I probably fail in both. I play Fantasy Football, and because of it... I am a moron.

LB

Another thing I like about Coach Golden: he keeps the cliches to a minimum.
