3) California. On a personal level, my feelings about this school's football program are accurately summed up by the Latin saying from the third Punic War; California delenda est. Why you ask?

^Nice, wiki'd it, loved reading about the Punic Wars. Bravo.

Great article so far, not done reading it.

"1) Penn State. Good riddance."

That would seem extreme...

...under different circumstances. One must pay the devil his due. Though it seems he's come to collect very early.

ogv,
Incredible man! This is still the best sports article series I have read on the net and that includes all the guys that get paid major bucks to do it.
thanks

DVD to the steelers

Hassan

That video was pure comedy lol wow Is he serious

Laquinton

I didn't find that video. I would use that as motivation honestly. That guy is dumb and the only reason he is talking is based off last year..well this isn't last years squad buddy

orange 'n green in the vein

Wow, Pitt might have played an even worse half of football this week than they did over the entire 60 minutes last week. Did the TCU Rose Bowl win not teach everybody the Big 10 is massively overrated yet?

roachcane77

Good job OGV... well thought out & researched.

What do you see as the top 3 games of this weekend? (Not including The U vs. KSU.)

The Dude

There are a bunch of key out of conference games for the ACC like Stanford vs. Duke and Temple vs. Maryland and NCST v. UConn. LSU and UW could be fun.

The Dude

And Penn St vs. Virginia. ACC needs to go win all these games the should and it would be icing on the cake if we and Duke win.

The Dude

Also look for Matt Barkley to put up redonkulous Heisman numbers against Syracuse.

The Dude

Nebraska and UCLA might be a fun watch.

I hope someone does a video montage of Miami's impending 12-0 season to this music:

86, you said Robinson was yelling at coaches and didn't return to practice.. Thr full game is on YouTube and to be honest he didnt make noise.. Besides that ff that he had.. To be honest that was going to be a missed tackle but his hand was on the ball.. Well slid on it. Miami truly needs defensive tackles... True dts Pierre is solid . Chick, green and Cain will need to play very solid and disrupt Klein. Cant have him looking like Cam Newton/tebow

raizecane

The Florida / A & M game will be interesting along with the UGA / Mizzo game.

raizecane

TonyCane - great link. Love that stuff....

I said Robinson was yelling at coaches in the earlier blog, this is reported at PBP and ITU they say he did not practice and was arguing with coaches...

Laquinton

Thanks. Bet he was mad that he was benched

Redshirt discussion

I wanted to talk a lil about redshirts. Our program truly will not be a top level until we develop depth and you do not do that until you can redshirt guys who need it. How ever with that said in modern CFB many kids come in more ready then ever before (Flowers) and part of that is that more kids come in early we had 8, I believe this spring. Coming in early is kinda like the new Redshirt. We have 32 freshman on our roster we played about 14 in the game and 8 came in early. Most of the guys who came in spring really needed it and are actually still not playing Gadbois, Both qb's, Witt retired, Hope, Hoilett. Only Gunter and Flowers are receiving much PT from those that came early. It looks like after this weekend the BCC game will really give our young guys a chance to ball out and see who will be redshirted, keep your eye for who plays a lot in the game and who does not because after that game I believe if you play you burn your RS. Our travel roster is 65 and we played 58 in the last game, if you do not get into the travel roster by this game and barring some great production in the BCC game look for our freshman not on the travel roster to be RS this year.

So your RS this year looks to be possibly all 3 QB Dewey, Thompson and Crow. They are 3-5 on the depth chart and one is injured no big surprise as they all needed it.
RB Dillard He arrived latest of all players is is 5th on the depth chart, no surprise as he was a 2 star guy and can use the conditioning and seasoning.
WR Carter, Jones and Lockhart could all RS.
OG Isidora
OT Gadbois
DT Ivery
DT Briscoe
DE Odonell
DE Hoilett
LB Blue
CB Hope
CB Dortch

That is 16 out of 32 which means 16 would play. Ideally I think we would like to RS Closer to 20 and candidates for those spots could be Kirby if is stays injured and Terry if he struggles in the next game. Possibly Crawford at CB

86Cane

Hassan...I agree with your list above excpet for the following:

WR Lockhart was said to be looking at some PT this year so not sure he will RS although it is a possibility.

I don't think that Terry or Crawford will RS they both will see more PT as the year goes on and both are needed on ST.

I do agree that Kirby will take a medical RS if he misses half the season which seems likely.

RECRUITING UPDATE:

Every kid that puts on the pads hopes to start their varsity career with a bang, but I don’t think St. Bonaventure quarterback Ricky Town could have even imagined making such a big splash in his first two varsity starts.

The 6-4, 190-pound sophomore was nearly perfect in his debut, completing 10-of-11 pass attempts against Garfield, and followed it up with a 346 yard, three touchdown performance against Corona Centennial Friday night.

“It’s cool to think about and everything but I have to give it to my team. They made the plays and I just did my part,” Town said. “The line blocked and gave me time and the receivers caught the ball.”

The 2015 signal-caller played with the poise of a veteran under the bright lights and FOX Sports West TV cameras. “It was awesome. This is the type of games that you live to play,” Town said of the 40-35 win over Corona Centennial. “It was a dream come true to be out here with the crowd and play against such a great team.”

Town has made a seamless transition to being the starting quarterback at one of Southern California’s top programs. “I think it has gone pretty smooth. I’m just trying to lead the team and get wins,” said Town. “It’s exciting to go from JV last year to now being the leader of a big program like this.”

It’s obviously still very early in his high school career, but you can be sure that college coaches will keep an eye on the young quarterback with great size, a good arm, and poise beyond his years. Schools are already showing interest, including a pair from across the country.

“Miami wants to offer me but they just want to see me play some games, same with Boston College,” he said. “I think they are both great schools. I took a trip to both schools this summer and I really liked Miami and their coaches! ”

86 - fat chance we land this kid (Town). USC is in his back yard.

Raize...do not be surprised. Jus sayin.

Hassan, if I'm not mistaken, I seem to remember that if you exceed(ed) a certain number of plays for a season, barring injury, then you were classed for that season.

orange 'n green in the vein

roach, South Carolina/East Carolina for the major upset potential, Duke/Stanford for the same, USF/Nevada because I think USF will be good this year but Nevada can really throw a monkey wrench into their season right away at home. I know those are kind of off the radar but week two isn't so great this year.

OK State/Arizona should end up non-competitive but might put up 100 total points between them when it's over.

MassivCane

Do you think the team woke up to roosters this morning? Will they be milling corn? Nah, they will be bringing some nasty weather with them. Golden has these boys ready, if it wasn't for youth this kids would be dominant, the future is exciting to think about!

Go Canes! beat K-State

86Cane

On the redshirt issue:

1. A general red shirt is only applicable if the player does NOT play at all even ONE play.

2. A hardship (medical or other) red shirt may be granted if the player did not play in more than 20% of the teams plays or games.

Ohio_Cane

Papa Cane - DL Luther Robinson will not travel with the team to KSU. I consider this a significant issue for depth purposes.

D'No already setting up his excuse for not stopping anything Saturday?

Hire Barrow at the coordinator and get Hargreaves back as the LB coach as a package deal with his son already. At least Mike has won championships, what's D'No got? Old Kent State tapes of 28 point wins to complain that they aren't doing the same thing over?

OGV...SHHHhhhhhhhhh, not so LOUD.

Not good..hopefully Moore or someone can step-up

JameriCANE

I have to go on the road this weekend. Anyone know how I can stream the game? The game is to be aired live on FX and Fox Deortes. I don't know where I can watch it online.

86Cane

Play action. That is all.

YES.
BTW did Duke get delivered yet?

LB

"Papa Cane - DL Luther Robinson will not travel with the team to KSU. I consider this a significant issue for depth purposes."

That's AWFUL. What in the blinking blue blazes is going on here?

UMike

LB..I have a sneaking suspicion he may be suspended and/or off the team.

herbieibis

No Luther, no Porter, no problem. Just another couple of servicible guys who can be replaced by guess who? Another couple servicible guys. Next problem!

UMike

herbie..I agree in a way..neither were stars, but it does hurt depth, BUT UTough has prepared this guys to play a lot of snaps..other guys will have to step up..wouldnt be the worst thing for a guy like Moore get more reps

CaneRock

smillerdegnan #UM DT Luther Robinson got involved in issue in which his dad complained to coaches, according to CaneSport

I don't know about Luther, but I don't consider Porter a "servicible guy". When healthy, the kid balls out.

UpNorthCane27

IF this whole Luther robinson and his father crying about the playing time is the reason hes not suiting or traveling with the team, AL shouldnt even think twice about putting up with this sh**!!! What has he done for the past 3 seasons he's been here? Nada, zip, ZERO, so there is no reason for him to be crying about playing time.

an FYI for robinson you came this close of being a offesnive linemen.
