We owe a BIG Shout out to U for participating in our "Five Questions" series. And thanks for laying it out straight like U see it.

It is not about IF we all agree or not it is your perspective and opinion and that is ALL that matters.

3G Cane

Whats the deal w/EJohnson?

SlingBlade

All 5 questions for Susan should be this one question...any new info. on Seantrel?

86Cane

Ohio...did I forget to mention how good it is to have U back on the blog? Well IF I did, it is GREAT having U back on the blog and (Twitter too)!

CGNC

4-8. Well. I think we go better than that and less than 12-0. LOL got my bases covered

Rumors are rampant that there is some type of situation going on with redshirt freshman linebacker Eddie Johnson, who just happens to be a co-first-team outside linebacker with Thurston Armbrister. I'm hearing there is something to those rumors, but I don't want to report anything until it's confirmed -- if it's confirmed.

Golden said Johnson was inside the Hecht Athletic Center and would be coming out shortly. He was not out there during our viewing. We asked about his status and Golden said his status was the same. "Nothing has changed,'' Golden said.

If Johnson's status is in jeopardy, then it appears Armbrister would be the starter, with true freshman Gabe Terry as the backup -- at least that's what the depth chart says. Johnson is listed as 6-1 and 230 pounds. He is from Atlanta, Ga.

U are a 9-3 girl. Don't back down now!

CGNC

86 - LOL. 4-8 is pretty sad considering the ACC is a fairly weak conference

herbieibis

Just scanning the blog and that 4-8 prediction woke the Herb right up. I know we are down right now but lets think about that 8 loss prediction. Who besides FSU & Maybe N. Dame has more overall raw talent on their squads? Yes we have played down to the comp ever since we've been in this snake pit conference. What we are up against this year is at least 9 teams with veteran QBs back. The defense this year will probably remind us of the '98 team. It will be leaky. Losing to BC would be a total slap in the face and could set the tone for a horrid season. Even being young, I can't see us losing to BC, G. Tech, or S. Flo. The defense should be better by years end and I can't see us losing to Vir. either. The toss up games for us will be NC St, K. St & UNC. N. Dame, & Flo. St could be ugly. It doesn't matter if we have 20 starters back and Va. Tech had sisters of the poor playing for them, we'll find a way to give them the game. 6-6 is reachable and the sooner we reach that plateau the better I'll feel and hand the NCAA our 2ND bowl ban and have that out of the way before they can open their mouth with sanctions. It would absolutely suk, if we didn't get 6 wins and they give us a 2 yr. bowl ban because next year, the dam cream we've been waiting for to rise to the top the last 10 years, will finally start to reach flood stage. We should easily reach 8 or 9 wins next year. Ship losses would probably be at around 15 over 3 years. We got to get to 6 wins, some how!

LB

"Nothing has changed,'' Golden said.

That's what we need to know.

LB

"Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson was back at practice today. He has been cleared to play, Golden told us."

Michael Casagrande with more great stuff.

LB...Casagrande (Big House) is our guest for "Five Questions" on Thursday night. His first three questions are totally different from the ones that Odoi from CanesInsider and Ferman from Canesport answered (Ferman runs tonight at 9 PM).

Casagrande has been tearing it up since taking over the SS blog. A welcome addition to the media covering the Canes for sure!

raizecane

Can we ask Big House if they do drug testing at SS?? Because they surely don't at CanesInsider when they predict a 4 - 8 season. :-)

LB

Can't wait. I really like that guy. Me gusta Casagrande!

j.w.

Brandon, no worries, predictions are predictions, I just hope yours doesn't come true. :)
Anyone else hate the rumors? lol

Tsully76

The last time our Miami Hurricanes won fewer than 5 games was 35 years ago in 1977 under Lou Saban.Heck I was wearing cloth diapers then.

j.w.

CEO- check your email

canezilla

I HEARD SOMEWHERE THAT USF IS RETURNING 17 STARTERS.MIGHT NOT BE A CAKEWALK

raizecane

canezilla - we won 3 - 0 last year at their place....I have no worries (haha)

86Cane

JW and CGNC...got your emails and responded.

Raize...wasn't the USF-UM game won 6-3 (not 3-0) by Miami at USF last year? Still we should beat them, with that I agree.

calGary Cane

With all the predictions for this year and how the O is supposed to be better, but the D not so... I am looking forward to see how well our offense plays this year. Would be nice to see the WRs, RBs and TEs show their stuff! Can't wait!

raizecane

your right......it was such a barn burner that I can't recall the final score...lol.

Ohio_Cane

Ohio...did I forget to mention how good it is to have U back on the blog? Well IF I did, it is GREAT having U back on the blog and (Twitter too)!

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

U DID forget to mention that, but I forgive U! ;-)

Seriously tho, it's great to be back.

Honeymoon in Riviera Maya was amazing, and we were treated like royalty at Secrets Maroma Beach. Would recommend that place to anyone thinking of heading to Mexico.

Also, 4-hour swim/ride/pet/snorkel with dolphins at Dolphinaris park for $200 for 2 people was something I'll never forget and was much more incredible than I thought it would be. If U go there, do that at this park. Indescribable.

Ohio_Cane

Bleacher Report is predicting who all of the leading tacklers for each team in the ACC will be. They (shockingly, lol) picks Denzel Perryman for the Canes

If it burst, then He may be out awhile.

CaneRock

Brandon says: "Only time will tell, my guess is he's poised enough to put up points on offense. It's the defense that will let him down."

True, but I think it goes both ways.
I think the offensive game plnn, has to play into the offensive and special teams game plan. I think this season comes down to a simple formula:

Offense on the field LONGER + Defense on the field LESS =s 7-5 or 8-4

But at the same time, that ball control has to yield POINTS, or at least good field position for the special teams to work with.

IOWs, if our defense has a lot of grass between their ass and the goal line, we'll be alright, if not, it's gonna be an interesting season.

I gotta feeling this season might be like JJ's first season here, hopefully we just don't blow 31 point leads LOL.

ACC announces men's basketball league schedule. Miami vs. Duke on ESPN twice this year. http://bit.ly/PdaPYm

orange 'n green in the vein

raize was thinking he was seeing double for that entire afternoon so he was subtracting one kicker appearance each from the USF game. Having hit up his tailgate pregame, I can't blame him for making that assumption about his own mental state, LOL.

solarcane

This is why we aren't expected to win the NC as far as the rest of the football world is concerned.
this is based on 32 ranking systems nation wide. We are starting out at #50 we started at #44 last year Here are a few of the rankings

#50 Miami FL ACC 0-0
43 63 97 44 37 60 47 66 37 56 69 64 50 56 61 50 61 62 52 65 55 52.09 51.0 14.26

97 or 14th both are about as far fetched as it could get, 50 is about right

the systems

Moore Kellner MOV Burdorf Fort Heresy Solecismic CSL USA Today Coaches
Payne OSCAR Billingsley Pugh PiRate UCS Kickoff Associated Press

Solar sez: "97th or 14th both are about as far fetched as it could get, 50 is about right."

I agree. To START the season we should be about #50 and then go UP or DOWN from there. But #50 usually doesn't go 4-8 do they? More like 7-5 or 8-4 correct?

86Cane

OGV,

Just bcuz you're a veteran qb doesn't mean you are good, look at kirby and Kyle wright. Also just bcuz you're a returning starting doesn't mean anything either, mcgee is a returning starter this year, how do you feel about him? We are playing in the acc not sec
