Those hockey jerseys are awesome.

Tsully76

Love the hockey jerseys. 86 thanks for running this blog for us fans. U are awesome.

SOUP

I do what I can.

THESE ARE REALLY GOOD GUYS.

We need our own stadium

DallasTX Cane

Stadium with ice rink?

Tsully76

Honestly I feel the Canes/Dolphins need to tarp off 15,000 seats at Sun Life which would bring the capacity down to roughly 60,000 put a canopy/roof over majority of stadium except the field of play and get some support from Miami-Dade and Fort Lauderdale/Broward in the funding best case scenario for all parties involved. Go Canes, beat UNC.

86 do the hockey team play at the Bank Atlantic Center oh I mean the BB&T Center in Fort Lauderdale/Sunrise or is that on Miami/Coral Gables.

Do we know if CGNC was wearing the booty shorts? That could be the culprit if she didn't.

I think the attendance for this weekend is going to be pathetic. Somebody at UM is going to have to come up with something to get attendance up.

I know winning generally does that but not so much in Miami. I am going to bet there were more fans at the Notre Dame game then what will show up for this Saturday....

Jack

Tsully -

I have been pounding this drumbeat since the Marlins left! Also, dolphin stadium MUST build seats closer to the damn field, "that is cheap to do" that helps both teams with noise factor!! A dome would be best!!!

Jack

Dolphin stadium is hosting the national championship game this year. Its a good stadium! It just needs to make those improvements Tsully and I mentioned early.... Getting my tickets today and I can't wait! I believe in this team and coaching staff!!!!!!!

WE GOT SOME CANES OVER HERE!!!

Here is an article that talked about improving SLS -

LB

"Shoulda worn orange. Woulda won."

Ha! Love that orange.

To add some historical perspective for this season:

2004: 5-3 (3rd)
2005: 6-2 (2nd, Coastal)
2006: 4-5 (4th, Coastal)
2007: 2-6 (5th, Coastal)
2008: 4-4 (4th, Coastal)
2009: 5-3 (3rd, Coastal)
2010: 5-3 (2nd, Coastal)
2011: 3-5 (4th, Coastal)

The above, kiddies, is UM's record in ACC play. It also contains where we finished in respect to the Coastal division (since its inception in 2005).

We have never finished higher than 2nd and never played for an ACC title. Our average place in the Coastal is 3.43, putting us below Virginia Tech (1.29) and Georgia Tech (2.29) and above North Carolina, Virginia (4.14), and Duke. Those are not good numbers.

After half of a season, UM stands at 3-0 in conference play. Given our current status and defensive liability, that's a huge accomplishment.

We also have 5 conference games remaining against teams with major deficiencies. Our remaining schedule looks very, very good.

Our toughest conference games:
1. Florida State. Our archrival who should be still seething after removing themselves from the title picture. They also lost to N.C. State.

2. North Carolina. Stout offensively, and statistically a good defense. However, these great defensive performances? Elon (0), East Carolina (6), and Idaho (0.).

T3. Virginia Tech. It's been a while since we've taken the Hokies. They've also lost to two Big East schools, one of which is Pittsburgh.

T3. Duke. The big unknown. They've never scored lower than 34 points a game. Their wins have also been against Wake, Virginia, Memphis, N.C. Central, and FIU. We'll see how good they are starting this weekend, as they play all conference opponents and the meat of their schedule.

4. Virginia. This is probably the worst of our remaining opponents, and quite frankly... we're due. Since joining the ACC, we're 3-4 vs. the Cavaliers. That should tell you the absolute mess Golden was left to clean up. We've also lost the last two. Good news! UVA's defense is just as bad as ours, and we'll have 9 days to prepare for them.

You guys can't tell me that we can't win two of those games. And honestly, that may be enough. The ACC is flat out horrible, and even worse than it previously was.

North Carolina is it, kids. Our big division opponent. The game to put us ahead of the pack or start biting the fingernails. We beat them and Duke loses (they play Va. Tech), and suddenly we're the only remaining unbeaten in the Coastal at 4-0 with a couple of 2-1's behind us.

Life, ladies and gents, could be a whole lot worse... and can very easily get a whole lot better.

LB

And hey! We don't have to listen to Joe Rose defend Randy Shannon after he lost to N.C. State. That in itself is a gift from God.

We're pretty much last in everything. I think, hopefully, we've reached the floor.

Agreed with all above posts. Let's go Canes, beat UNC

CGNC

No. But I didn't wear them for Ga Tech and NC State either.

Woo hoo a Canes hockey team! When I get back to South Fla I will def catch some games!

The unis are bad a$$!

GO CANES!! Can their goalie kick fieldgoals? j/k!

^^Raize Willie Will already accepted responsibility for this loss due to the fact that he did not have his son with him. LOL

nemo2002

I really hope we win this game on Saturday. If we lose, it could be the beginning of a Shannonesque end-of-season swan dive. Conversely, if we win, we're on a glide path to the ACC championship game.
Go CANES

We lost to 2 teams with bad azz O and D lines - where we lost it in the trenches.

I think that we have a good chance of winning all the rest of the games. We have a chance to have good running games against ACC opponents and if we don't shoot ourselves in the foot with our dropped passes, it is possible for us to win the rest of our games!

Maybe it was the winning in them but can we bring these jerseys back! lol

pbcfrcane13

and that quote by portis is AWESOME!!!

pbcfrcane13


“When I came to the University of Miami, I had one single conversation. Edgerrin James was standing on the sideline. He said, ‘Are you coming to UM?’ I said, ‘Are you leaving?’ He said, ‘It shouldn’t matter whether I leave or stay. You should come here because you want competition.’ James Jackson, Najeh Davenport, Edgerrin James were all on the roster when I signed with the University of Miami. I didn’t know he was leaving. I was coming here for that sole purpose to compete and get the best out of me. Other schools say, ‘Hey, you’re going to be the man and we are going to give it to you.’ I don’t want anything given to me. Nothing had been given to me to that point. I know anything given to me is not worth having. I want to work for it. Then I can be appreciative. I can look back and I don’t owe anybody anything. If I owe somebody, its coach Don Soldinger for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play at the University of Miami. And coach Butch Davis, those are the people that I owe. Other than that, nobody gave me a hand out. I had to get down here and hustle and grind and bust my butt to be who I am today.”

I think we need to find a spot on the wall in the UM hallways for this quote!!

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

I am not getting my hopes up. For the last few years, we needed to win just one game to advance to the ACCC and always tumble. This defense will keep us from advancing again.....

CGNC

pbc - C Port is a Virgo :-D

Ohio_Cane

Curtis Porter back practicing.

Zakkee

1) Establish the run, which = a successful play-action passing game.

2) Contain Gionni Paul

Canes win 31-17

No one can check Phillip Dorsett in college football and definitely not in the ACC. Just catch the ball...which he will.

The return of Raphael Kirby, Denzel Perryman, and the development/recent experience of Gionni Paul and Eddie Johnson is good enough to slow the ACC rushing attacks the rest of the way. Our negative defensive numbers will go down the rest of the way. Kirby is the real deal!

I like Golden but he has the rest of this season to me (not that my opinion counts towards any decision in the least). With just average/adequate coaching--we shouldn't lose more than two of our remaining games. Since he and No'D are a package deal and have (up until this point) refused to adjust, then die by the sword. We don't owe him anything, but to judge him by the teams results.

Anyone else notice a pattern of disrespect for the fans from the last few coaching staffs? Shannon said some crazy ish about not caring about Us (what we think) and now No'D says the same. Now ask yourself if these sentiments would've been expressed if their employer (check writers) didn't accept, agree, or even promote these same sentiments. How does a NEW COACH think he can say some ish like that at a NEW JOB??? Thats like getting a new job and going on vacation the same week. These sentiments must be allowed, accepted, and/or cultivated by their higher ups. Who would be this brazen and reckless without precedent (twice)?

As fans we have a responsibility to uphold and promote classic Hurricane culture. Falling in love with men and their personalities is not a part of that responsibility. And man crushes definitely aren't--I don't care how great your hair is, how hot ya broad is, how tight your tie is, how jovial ya brow is, or how many syllables ya words give. The Miami Hurricane play a certain way...period. And its all out warfare style until 00.00 on the clock.

I've spent $2500-$3000 traveling to support and see this team play 4 times in the last 3 seasons. That's equivalent to how many sets of season tickets now? So I don't want to here the blindly support the boys speech as a rebuttal. There was no one at those team buses with partial refunds after that blowout last weekend. Dude couldn't even bring himself to look Us in the face yo.

Stop coaching our team like you're attempting to moderately estimate the quarterly fiscal returns on the initial investment portfolio projections. This aint Wall Street its a game called football...now coach it please..it aint that hard if every poster knows the adjustments we need to make.

Another good thing about the Texas Southern penalties, that boes well for us...NO SCHOLARSHIP REDUCTIONS. At least that's what I got from that article.

Posted by: CaneRock | October 10, 2012 at 02:24 PM

OOPS! Yes they did, my bad:

"Other penalties include five years' probation, SCHOLARSHIP LIMITATIONS in football and basketball and the vacating of all team records from the 2006-10 in all sports, and including the 2010-11 records for football and women's soccer. In 2010, Texas Southern won its first Southwestern Athletic Conference football championship since 1968."

Brooksville to Winter Haven. Me so tired.

I need OcalaCane and NativeCane to confirm their plans for the UNC game this weekend.

Email me or call me later tonight (after 7 PM) when you know your plans for sure.

calGary Cane

A limit of no more than 65 overall counters, 25 initial counters (from 30 maximum) and 60 equivalency scholarships (from 63 maximum) in football for four academic years.

A limit of 11 men’s basketball scholarships (from 13 maximum) for three academic years

raizecane

the vacationing of team records is a joke....I mean, really??

Yeah I committed a lot of violations that game. I wore a canes shirt, I didn't have my son, I watched the game downstairs instead of upstairs, I watched all our games solo wit just me and my son that game we had a house full, and I had a bad feeling about all the reasons I just stated. I apologize to all

LB

Even Golden is publicly commenting on D'Onofrio now.

"Golden: “Any frustration that he has on his part… because there’s no fan out there that can match his intensity or his dedication in trying to get his trade right. The last two years the same guy had two Top-20 defenses in terms of scoring defense. So, as angry as everybody is, they’re not watching it, they’re not living it everyday like he is.

“As I say to him and the whole defensive staff, we’re moving the team forward. Just keep moving it forward. As I said to you guys before, it’s not like we’re hiding a bunch of fourth and fifth-year seniors on the scout-team field. Where are they? There are no fifth-year seniors, there are no fourth-year seniors – only a couple – and there are very few juniors."
