pbcfrcane13

Well your wrong on that one umike in 2010 I want to say there was close 75K at sun life between Um and FSU just saying.

UMike

Tsully...a sell out will be far fetched for any opponent, FSU included. Sun Life sits a lot of people..

canezilla

NEXT YEAR WHEN FLORIDA COMES IN.U KNOW THAT WILL BE A SELL OUT 4 SURE

UMike

Tsully76

Last year when Ohio State came to Sun Life. There was 68 thousand about 25,000 were OSU fans. I was in the house for that game. Oh we will get 75,000 for FSU this year just 30,000 will be FSU fans. It is what it is. Canes 4 life.

UMike

Tsully..I was at the OSU game with a OSU friend..we had the taps AND empty seats..I remember cause I was in the upper deck and my friend was amazed that we couldnt sell out a game like that.

Tsully76

Exactly Canezilla. Sellouts for FSU, and UF

Mike Farrell (Rivals): Last week I talked about the Miami-area quarterbacks that got away from the 'Canes as part of the problem this season, but Stephen Morris might have salvaged the season for Miami and really pushed recruiting forward. The heart that Miami showed in coming back from a 36-19 deficit to pull out a 42-36 overtime win over a Georgia Tech team that just slammed Virginia the week before was impressive. Some local recruits, including Matthew Thomas and Denver Kirkland, certainly took notice.

CGNC


We are second only to FSU in converting on 3ed down though.
Watching NC State a little this year they don't look that impressive to me.

I haven't seen them play at all. Mike James will activate his beast mode second time in a row and Canes will win.

j.w.

Haven't seen NC State since week 1. Typically o'Brien's tems are well coached, boring, and better than most expect. Predicting a Canes win in this one, but it is going to be close. Miami 31 NC St. 28

WWIN

Are we expecting Curtis Porter to play Saturday? He is not listed in the IR.

Never expect him to play unless we have two games left

Staring tackles are out for NC State. I thin Coach D is already dialing up that Blitz

Both Duke and Messi are usually the smallest guys on the field but are competing as giants!

Treatment of a High Ankle Sprain

Syndesmotic injuries tend not to heal as well as more common ankle sprains, that is why trainers and coaches of athletes are often concerned about "high ankle sprains." Your orthopedic doctor will first determine if the injury is stable or unstable. If the injury is stable, then the high ankle sprain can be treated in a cast, usually for a period of 6 weeks.

If the injury is unstable, then a surgery may be needed to stabilize the ankle. Your surgeon will place a screw between the tibia and fibula to hold the bones in proper position while the syndesmotic ligament heals. The are several methods of fixation of syndesmotic injuries, all with potential risks and benefits. It is a relatively safe and well-tolerated surgical procedure.

4-Real

Ohio, gotta recruiting question 4 u . It's been said 4 awhile now that UM only has 16-17 schollys 2 give 4 the 2013 class. But didn't the coaching staff come up with that number b4 we lost Vernon Davis, Josh Witt, Keon Payne & Junior Alexis?

solarcane

for my man tsully,
seems the nation believes what you say

an Iowa fan's observation on Miami sports fans

"Miami is the worse sports town I've ever lived in. They are the biggest bunch of bandwagon fan base you'll ever come by and the worse fan base you could have for a city.

Reason 1.) As a kid I'd visit miami often. And one of the things we'd do is go to Marlin games. After the 1st inning was over. You could buy a 5 dollar ticket to get into the game for upper deck seats. After you bought this ticket you could literally sit where ever you wanted. Only time you could not do this process is if the Yankees were in town. Ive been to a couple dolphins games, as well as heat games (pre Shaq or Leborn) and not once was it a sell out crowd.

Reason 2.) When visiting down there throughout the years. I remember when I was 4 everyone was a Gator fan. Than later everyone was FSU fan. In 2002 everyone was Miami fan again. Fast forward to 2009 everyone was a Gator fan. I'm predicting when I visit for xmass, everyone will be a FSU fan again.

Reason 3.) Kinnick stadium holds 70,500 fans. In a city whose pop is 67,000. I'd venture to guess on game day Iowa City's pop is 180,000. Miami teams dont sell out unless they are winning. So for this instance we'll use the hurricanes. They had 300 people show up in a city whose pop is 2.5 million people (not counting the illegals)"

AAAAAND!
Miami has 5 NCs!
Iowa and Iowa State...NONE!

"Fan base" THAT!

Hope u guys have a great time at SLS......I shall be there soon myself....

Tsully76

Great stuff solar. Canes rock the fact that the U has 5 titles in the modern era of college football and gets such horsecrap support is legitimate and real. Sometimes the truth hurts. We on here are die hards and try to go to as many games as possible. We have fans that drive for hours to see the Canes and you got people claiming they are down with the U but when its really time to show it they are no where to be found.

Tsully76

There are 4,250,000 people within an hour drive aka the Miami/Fort Lauderdale market. I didn't include West Palm, the Treasure Coast, South West Florida who are within a 2 hour drive that pushes the regional population around 7,500,000. So for a program to have won as much as the U has won and to not be able to get 1% of the regions population aka 75,000 to fill Sun Life and in the past the OB is freaking disgrace.

A "disgrace"? I disagree TS76, I think it just makes what we've accomplished that much more remarkable.

Ohio_Cane

Willing to bet $ that because of their OL problems, NC State will try to slow down Canes DL with screens to RB's and WR's.

Old Skool

Iowa and Iowa State...NONE!

What? Iowa hasn't won any national championships and the football team still sells out every home game. Do you mean that failure is expected and accepted?

Of course, there could be nobility in losing. So if you're satisfied with mediocrity, so be it. Miami fans have much higher standards.

Otherwise, living in a state that has as many cows as people in it and then coming together regularly in one spot such as Iowa City could simply be a matter of s shared herd instinct.

Old Skool

Make that "a shared herd instinct and a docile acceptance of being slaughtered."

Tsully76

Old Skool so explain our Canes winning the 2001 National title and averaging 47,000 fans for that year cut the bs.

Tsully76

Canesrock I say its a freaking disgrace for the program to have accomplished so much yet the regional population claims they care but when it matters proves they don't care. The fact that the program has done awesome over the modern era with a small die hard fan base is remarkable. And there is so much to do argument is the lamest bs ever. Also lol with the noon games but the Dolphins had 60 thousand paid and they haven't played for the Championship since Madonna,Prince, and Michael Jackson were on top of the Music Industry the 1984-85 season.

Tsully, there are fans that go to the games, and there are fans that don't...that's the way I look at it. Frankly, I was just as excited as the Miami fans in Atlanta when Miami came back last week. And similarly, I'll be just as excited tomorrow should Miami beat NCST.

pbcfrcane13

Why are people even still talking about the attendance? I mean really its been like this since i dont know forever! Every sports team in SFLA has the same problem look at the dolphins the past two games have not been able to sell out the heat before lebron got here the staduim was not sold out the panthers its the samething. If you dont win in Miami or if its not a big even people dont show up. WHy is this still a big deal? We are still having "big" time recruiting classes ranked in the top 25 with the same attendance.

Peopl dont go to the games one yes because its hot....two most people dont care about UM because they went away to another college...three people would rather stay home sit in 70 degree AC with cheaper food and beer and watch 5 games at one time than spend 400 bucks to sit in the hot sun. GET OVER IT!!!! This isnt UF, FSU were there is nothing else to do! This is Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/ WPB!!! HOly cow people stop your complaining!!!!

I pay my hard earn money to go to every home game and at least one away game because I love this team. I get why people like friends and family dont want to pay the money to go watch this team.

Tsully76

Great point Canesrock. Last week was fun at Bobby Dodd. I will see you Canespacers in the am at Sun Life. Go Canes. Beat NC State.

pbcfrcane13

If you want go look at the HX of UM even when they were great they didnt draw big crowds only for the big games! UM you want to get 50+ for all your games get ranked in the top 10 and start winning 10+ games a year......sorry but thats the truth and if you dont like it than sorry dont know what else to tell you.

WWIN

Tsully,

I agree its a disgrace. And they always make excuses about it like, we got other things to do, those other teams don't have nothing to do in their city but go to games, etc ,etc. Its ridiculous to have more support on the road than at home

mi@mic@ne

Miami is a very fickle town but when your riding the wave theres no better place to be. Just look at the last home playoff game when the Heat closed it out. That place was rocking. There was a connection between the team and the fans that you dont see in other venues. When the Canes start to become a serious top ten team then youall see the people become loyal.

mi@mic@ne

Its not like these small towns where people like to go see losers. lol
