Not to veer off of football...but how about the Oakland A's? When we in northern VA ...Springfield from 1967 to 70 I used to go see the Washington Senators who were awful, but fun, and the Orioles who were great. I saw the As with those bright uniforms, white cleats, long hair, mustaches, and wide open style of play...WOW!!! Reggie, Joe Rudi, Tenace, Bando, Vida Blue, Blue Moon Odom, Rollie Fingers,Catfish Hunter, Dick Green, Campy Campanaris,...man they were it. I love the As. They won 3 in a row under Dick Williams and Alvin Dark....then they were gone. They had some moderate sucess when Little ricky Henderson, Dwayne Murphy and Armas were together under Billy Martin...then of course with Canseco and Big Mac the user....I alwys loved the way Henderson played. cocky...a nut...but great. They lost 3 staring pitchers this year, were 13 back in June...and today beat texas to win the West....with 3 rookie pitchers....probably 11or 12 rookies on the roster.....over achievers....thats what we need to do....get our Baby Canes to keep going....they can do it. We are not perfect, we struggle in areas...but No Quit!!!

AND ONCE AGAIN...

There IT is right there.

VA Cane

My mother owns a farm in Southampton County in VA, just below Richmond in the country. It has been in our family since the formation of this country. I guess now when I go down there, and see the deer, fish the river, hear the quiet, feel the breeze, drink the spring water, ride the dirt bikes and enjoy what one day will be mine, I appreciate it. I really am glad a Cane is taking his young ones to be in that type of setting, and I wish many others could. It makes you think different; it helps me to keep it together through the struggles I have had in the last couple years. I have lived in both settings, woods are best for me. I go to Richmond fairly regular; my friends have record stores there. Richmond is a historic city. Again, forgive if I offended anyone. Most of you know how I love all my players black and white...they are very important to me. Racism is wrong, and the worst institution that ever happened in America was slavery...we should all be free, never a posession of another.

We are family on here, and I respect everyones opinion; I read everyones comments and you are a smart bunch. Lets keep working together to broaden our perspectives....and get behind our young charges to BEAT ND!!!

Canerock, by saying "sideline dudes". I actually meant that you were taking sides, but it wasn't your quarrel. I was saying that you shouldn't be jumping in at all, not that you were straddling some imaginary line. They can handle themselves, thats all.

Canerock, we don't have to compare the evils in different music to determine which one is worst. Stop relying on the literal or absolute. You can calculate the # of dead Jews or victims of mass murders. But what we are talking about CANNOT be counted. It resides in the victims subconscious and directly affects their level of self-love and importance of mortality. It breed self-destruction which is much more covert and leaves hardly a trace like your statistics. Teenage pregnancy, Black on black crime rates, abortion numbers, STD numbers, domestic violence #'s, The Prison Industrial Complex #'s, bloods and crips, cyberbullying, unemployment, low marriage rates, fatherless homes, baby daddy/child support issues etc etc...
All by-products of gangsta rap musics attack on the listeners conscious and MORE IMPORTANT subconscious.

Now calculate the numbers of its impact, You cannot because its range and implications are way too wide.

The healthy sense of identity and self-love was psychologically stripped during slavery and the subsequent product or creation of this conditioning is the "nigger"--the nigger is a man-made creation. Lil Wayne and the other degenerates I named personify this result.

You can kill people from within, just strip their history, disconnect their women (make them reliant on the master for whatever the need of sustenance--welfare or a "better" job or education from their men, and replace their identity with the allure, desire, and lust for money (capitalism--every song is about: "Getting Money"), women ("bad bitches" are desired), and "haters"-- gotta have some opposition--that means you are doing something right lol. The opposition always looks just like your reflection though.

Its systematic, methodical, and covert CaneRock. Its much more lethal than overt, literal and conventional war.

Zakkee

I feel you Cocane but in "ghettos" there is some semblance of freedom or a way out (overcoming odds). On plantations there was none. You can voluntarily read in the hood, but you would've been killed on the plantation. They were much more restrictive. The ghettos of today have that same slight opening of opportunity in them. You just have to overcome your surroundings, make safe decisions, pray and focus on avoiding the miseducation (the public education system is integral part of institutional racism) that keeps us subjugated and just self educate yourself and family.

HawaiiCane

CoCane

Canerock,

It's impossible to have true hip hop without expressing negativity because there's so much of it growing up in the ghetto. The mission that early hip hop( 80's-mid 90's) was about, was to express the negative pain from experience, followed by a solution to rise out & above the negative environment that we've been born, raised & programmed in...

CaneRock

Exactly how far back do you have to go to find "true hip hop". Every era of hip hop that I know had a negative AND positive influence from hip hop.

CoCane

Love that post Zakkee. The only thing I disagree with is that the first ghettos were in New York. Those were the first "big city" ghettos. The first ghettos were slave plantations in the rural south. What you said about hip hop was gospel. Well put bro...

The changes that true hip hop can make to the thought process of the youth in the ghetto, compared to da destructive bullshyt that's being glorified & flooded into their brainwaves disgusts me more than anything in the world right now.

You must think that people give up their 1st Ammendment rights to post RESPONSIBLY on this blog.
Anyways, blog on buddy...

Zakkee

I commend BLH for addressing VA's comments. And I really commend VA for the apology, it shows good character and maturity!

Sideline dudes need to stay out of it and let gentlemen handle their differences like they both eventually did.

VA, there is ALOT that goes into whats happening in the inner-cities and its a FACT that most of it has been systematically, socially, and economically engineered thru eugenics. Impoverished (physically, mentally and emotionally) people do not choose to be downtrodden--to go thru adversity as opposed to prosperity (who would choose the nasty inner-city over the lovely outdoors of the country--I agree). Many of them have been conditioned to accept, promote, and embrace a bad life. Some are disenfranchised and some (much worse off) even embrace the adverse culture as if its ideal. This isn't an excuse...this is just the truth from a former resident of a ghetto.

Rap music began as an artist outlet similar to poetry, that was based in upliftment and enlightenment of the have nots. Capitalism has corrupted this art form to the point where a rap artist cannot get a record deal, distribution, or airplay if the music's message is positive in anyway. Thus the non-music, savagery, misogynist, materialistic, self-destructive, sellout buffoonery of the mainstream Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Lil wayne, 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka etc etc... This garbage is made mainstream (highly accessible) on purpose. This is not hip-hop, hip-hop is revolutionary, so its been destroyed and replaced with debauchery.,,on purpose.

Remember that the first "ghettos" were in New York and the homes of Italian, Jewish, and Irish immigrants (via Ellis Island). They were the undesirables, downtrodden, "despicables", and disdained. "The Natives" (lol) didn't want them here and they were constantly oppressed/subjugated because of this. One of the first words they learned was "nigger" --it represented what they were not, that there was something even lower than themselves in American society. Unfortunately, their first patriotic feeling was this distinction based in color and brought on by a need/desire to conformity.

The people at the bottom always fight over last place. Lets stop this pattern now--lets define ourselves based on who we are--not what we are not. We're all way more alike socially, economically, and politically than we think. And way more alike than our skin colors subconsciously dictate via our conditioning. The strong only rule the weak, never the wise.

Thanks VA and BLH!

I love you all and especially the Canes!

BLH, you're injecting a presumed racial commentary into VAC's post where there isn't one. He prefers one type of lifestyle and setting over another, skin color is irrelevant to his feelings and his post, at least when I read them for their actual content.

The one and only Stephen Morris is going to need to get his team ready to play this week in a tough environment, he struggles with managing the play clock a lot of times in games like this one.

PHUCK! Patrick Petersen, but I wish He would've came here though LOL.

Zakkee

NFL Films has done a short segment on Patrick Petersen and its showing on ESPN2 right now. Its a very good story, but his parents just said that they instilled in him that he should ALWAYS keep his word. Their words just rang odd to me considering his and their relationship with UM and his recruitment/commitment. Also, his dad didn't marry his mom (hence his name change from her surname Johnson to Petersen) until he became a sure shot talent. His success brought them together. Marriage is an endangered pillar of society and I commend their commitment no matter what (I don't know enough about the specifics to make a truly educated judgement), but people and their motives for action or inaction are very interesting to me. Guess I'm thinking/typing out loud.

What a lesson in "commitment" and they have no idea of the impression they are giving off...its "all good."

Coverage wise, one thing I noticed ND did the last time we played them, is rotate from a 2 hi-safety look, to a 1 hi-safety look. NCST did it Saturday. Morris has got to post snap read that, and take a shot at the 1 on 1s where the FS vacated. I'm pretty sure they'll roll the coverage to PD, so our other WRs have to win their 1 on 1s.

And assuming ND plays a Tampa-2, we should take advantage of that with dump-offs to Johnson or James.

VA Cane

CaneRock, thanks for the nice comment.

BLH, I did not mean to offend or put down anybody...I just love it in the country. I lived in NYC as a young child, Dad was FBI. I have seen the worst inner city problems. I certainly apologize if I offended you; that is not what I am about. Will think a little more before I write next time. I understand your point!!

I think we need to fix a lot of things, FGs, tackling, coverage...whew!!! However, the kids are playing hard, learning on the fly, and we just need to stay behind them as much as we can. ND is good, and favored. We have been here before. If we do not let the cold psych us out, and play hard for 60 minutes, think about the basics and execute, we have a chance...thats all I want.

Your responses sound insincere to me, and have not dissuaded me from interpreting your remarks as the stereotypical remarks of a die hard bigot.

VA Cane

Iy you have some insight, you would recognize the pun made in the original comment. It is a referral to Deliverance a Burt Reynolds/John Voight movie that was controversial not for racism, but rather a portrait of "country people" that was not well received by many people. I found it to be a great movie, and perhaps I know some people who are like people in said movie. Thats their problem for being that way; I am not. Hoods and shotguns? Thats bad stuff. Racism? I have 25 players on my current team; 15 black, 10 white...I love them all. Come to the country sometime, we like to call it Gods Country cause it is so awesome. I wish every inner city person could come....they might not go back!!!!!

I hate to say it, but when you make these type of comments it makes you sound like a real bigot.

Inner city kids grow up in "public housing,ghettos, ignorance, dirty air, violence, trash, dirty water, criminals" because they have nowhere else to go.

Of course, if we send a few up to where you live, I wonder what would happen. How would you greet them? I'm sure it wouldn't be with shotguns and a white hood, would it?

Please tell me I'm wrong, because based on your comments that's what it sounds like.

It amazes me how recent UM teams are such babiess when it comes to weather. Rain, sleet and snow in Blacksburg, Sun Bowl, Wisconsin in FL....on and on and on. If one is conditioned properly, and stays hydrated, heat is not such an issue. Light cool rain is relief. However, when the snow flies, or it is cold, or freezing rain, it numbs the mind, it defeats you before you start. Every cold game we have played in Blacksburg I have seen the defeat and fear in our eyes....in warmups. So many of these kids have played in warm weather all their lives. I remember playing Giles County (west of B-burg) my junior year in late Sept...snow falling. We played Covington in the state semis same year...and won in 0 degrees, about -10 with chill. It is about what is in your mind. If you love the game, and love to light others up, it is a serious advantage. I have coached numerous games in the cold, and the first key is dress. I have a whole day where I meet with the players and parents, and show them every trick I have learned from the age of 8...I am old thats 46 years!!! My dad, uncle and godfather played in it so you learn. Once you know how to stay warm...I mean really warm...you get the mental game going...like JJ did. Us against them, we are on an island etc. One time we played a team from a wealthy school here in VA. I told them our parents clap, theirs rattle their jewelry (thanks John Lennon).They had 2 sets of jerseys, and though we were 1 seed, and only had white, they wore their whites. The officials made them change, and their coach said to me...with a laugh...after this you can put your 1 seed and jerseys away. Pissed me off. It was about 30...I told my guys we want to punish these pretty boys unmercifully. We will run at them, drive them into the ground. On D we hit and hit and hit...I want to hear it. Well we won 18-0 never threw a pass. They carried 6 people off. In th cold you make people pay, just like in the heat...and cause they do not want to be there, it hurts more!! We do not need any heaters, or excuses, or crying and whining....we go up there dress smart....and go for the win...kill shots that hurt, intimidate and punish. These guys are good, and we have to hit them. Do we have it in us? can we tackle and hit? We better find it, we can win!!

Most yards in the nation over the last 2 weeks? That would be Miami, with 1,260.

I wish people would stop calling this ND/UM game at a "neutral site". Uh, no it's not. It's less than 90 miles from ND's campus.

It is all about the U!
In this week’s power ranking Notre Dame is ranked #11 in SI, but the write up for their upcoming game is mostly about the U and Johnson than it is about ND. LOL
It’s already starting!

INJURY UPDATE

While the ailing UM defense has gotten back middle linebacker Denzel Perryman, as you know, it has likely lost starting defensive tackle Olsen Pierre for the Notre Dame game. Pierre did not practice Tuesday again. Golden said he was "doubtful'' for Saturday. The coach said Corey King will likely replace Pierre, and freshman Dequan Ivery will be included in the rotation. Ivery has not played yet.

I hope Morris and Duke are both feeling 110%. Miami is going to need a LOT of points.

We had better fix the field goal issue.

Props to Alonzo, Great Tweet. From Barry Jackson

“Gonna drop kick that leprechaun right through the uprights and stamp a U on his butt! LOL!” tweeted Alonzo Highsmith, whose son starts at safety for UM. Alonzo smiled about his dad's tweets: “He has got a lot of energy.

MIA Chi 'Cane '98

If anyone, who is going to the game, has any questions about Chicago let me know.

Born and bred here. Spent four years down in Coral Gables and came back. Lived in the city for 10 years but now in the 'burbs. Stil work in the city about 10 minutes from Soldier Field.

I will be at the game. Good seats, 200 level on Notre Dame side. I cannot complain. I got them free from my father in law through his company...

LaQuinton

This game is a true test. And win or lose this game will tell us that Miami is on the right track the last two games told me that utough is working.. That players dont quit... That we have receivers not just one (hank) that we are teaching as we go... And we can be down 14 points.. Against a acc Team and won.. The next at home to a accurate qb and a "all American cb" and greedy defense and had a recird setting day. Cant wait til Saturday im praying that we shock the world ! Go canes

Panamacitycane

And once again I suck at typing on my phone hahah

I beleive that this team can suprise the nation Saturday..I think with the kansas state game they didnt come out thinking theu were gonna get punched in the mouth that hard. And by timw they realized it they got knocked out. Now they know what to expect. With two more linebackers..especially perryman we will be better on defense..we have to be because the offense cant win every game..DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS! LETS GO CANES!!!

BigWindyCane1

I am also looking at this ND game - on the road, against an elite opponent, 37 degrees and hostile environment - to show me if this is a real championship team in the making.

The Canes have shown me that they are winners and that they will fight to the last play for a win. I am looking for some growth from game-to-game, and we will know something about these Canes after this trip to Chicago. Regardless of the outcome, they will play well and should eventually win the ACC Coastal Division.

I think the Canes under Golden are becoming a championship level team, and if they can get that defense fixed (and I believe they will) and become consistent in their execution, the Canes can be a dominant team.
