Anybody remember back in the day when The Truth and I made a bet on which UM player, LB/DE Marcus Robinson or WR Aldarius Johnson, would be drafter higher in the FIRST round on the NFL draft?

orange 'n green in the vein

So what's the POA for this weekends tailgate? It's a 8 pm night game so that means how many hours to consume mass quantities of intoxicating substances?

CaneRock

DUUUUUUUUUUUKE! OCHO BABY!

86Cane

OGV...Mrs. 86 will be attending the game with me (since it is FSU) and we are leaving the 863 around noon to arrive around 3-4 PM. Kenny and Canezilla will be arriving as soon the gates open at 2 PM for a 6 hour tailgate.

As far as I know just U, me and Kenny are going. I have not heard from Old Skool or NativeCane about this week yet?

Old Skool

Nix on me. It's quarterly report time again ... Ms. Feliciano will have to do without.

Yes, I remember your bet with Truth.

If they haven't practiced well then this game will get ugly quick. Be ready for yardwork. Lol

Actually the game is at night - laundry instead

Was it ever determined if The Truth was Nevin Shapiro? That was my conspiracy theory...

LMAO!

Zakkee...I just did a Google search for both MR and AJ and found NOTHING in the news from the last 6-12 months so I am guessing they are both out of football?

AJ was actually pretty good. I am surprised if he has not made a NFL roster.

Zakkee

Yea 86, that was one of the most divisive and disputed wagers ever between bloggers at the time. its crazy how irrelevant it eventually ended. Those two were super talented, but I had He-Man without question back then. He always had sparks of eliteness but never achieve any consistency performance wise. Sad for both. They were unanimously considered sure-shot NFLers back then.

I remember hearing that The Truth was Clint Hurtt lol!

Whomever he was, I used to destroy him during the blog's classic: Players (talent) vs. Coaching debates.

Ohio_Cane

Looks like Saturday's game matters a little bit more than it did:

Manny - Booker T. LB Matthew Thomas likes UM's depth chart, but FSU appears to have inside track http://bit.ly/RFnggO

Iv'r been called drunken bastard....not sure where they got that from :-)

Honestly, I have called folks by both real and blog names. Except for 86.....he has too many damn names.

j.w.

lol , zilla. Who did you bet on, CEO? And did you specify if it were the NFL, CFL, or some other league's draft? :)

orange 'n green in the vein

Kenny needs help turning on the computer, so he doesn't blog, but he does tailgate in a style that would make the good Dr. Thompson proud.

Terrance is Terrance, so I guess yes for him, I call 86 by his name always but he doesn't always do the same for me, not that it matters either way. I call Canezilla just 'Zilla because he looks like he could put a hurting on metropolitan Tokyo to me which is why when I swing by his tailgate I keep my eyes on my phone and only communicate by blogging to spare his reptilian wrath. Old Skool and Native I call by their names never by their blog handles, raize I'll call either/or, or drunken bastard, but only after he drinks a half bottle of Captain and earns it.

OGV U CRAZY

Kenny is Kenny, Terrance is Terrance but other than that real names and blog names are interchangeable to me throughout the tailgate anmd game. To be honest in the smoke of the tailgate and the fog of war there are times when I cannot think of a bloggers REAL name so I may resort back to blog names in the heat of battle or after consuming multiple adult beverages.

Plus OGV sounds so much cooler than "Chris" don't U agree? LOL

I had AJ. Both Lamar Thomas and Andre Johnson told me to my face that Aldarius Johnson had the potential coming out of HS to be better than BOTH of them.

Talk about wasted talent.

86Cane

When I met and talked to NFL star Andre Johnson in Tampa before the Super Bowl a few years ago I stood nest to him to get a photo. To be honest he was a big, fit athletic guy but physcially he was not the MOST impressive player I have ever seen and I felt I could stick him 1:1. Now of course I couldn't but I felt I could. It just goes to show U how how much hard work, technique and dedication go into making a great player.

Also at the same event was WR Steve Smith. Now that guy was a SMURF. I could NOT believe he was an NFL player. NO WAY! But what a player he turned out to be also.

I learned then that it is as much what is in a players head, and heart, that matters as much as their 40 time, vertical jump or bench press.

Oregan is crushing Zona State......already scored 40+ points with 10 minutes still left in the second quarter.

Cardinals 6, Giants 2

UM's John Jay with an RBI double last inning for the Cards.

Canespace, circa January 2008:

And then there were four...Jacory Harris, Taylor Cook, Cannon Smith and Robert Marve.

Last year, there were none. Now, Canes offensive coordinator Patrick Nix finds himself with four talented quarterbacks to choose from. Poor Patrick, what a terrible, terrible problem to have.

The highlight of the 2007 season? One could argue for beating TAMU at the OB early in the season. But nothing beats beating FSU at the Doak! If you recall, Kyle Wright went down in a heap late in the second quarter. In steps season starter, but current bench warmer, Kirby Freeman to save the day. Then, Kirby, who just so happens to be named after a famous vacuum cleaner company because well, you know why, proceeds to go all of 1 for 8 with two interceptions before "The Drive".

That's right, the Kirbomatic had completed MORE passes to the team wearing Garnett and Gold than his own team. Then some how, some way he summoned the strength from the "U" tattoo on his back and put the entire team on his back to lead the winning drive with around two minutes to play in the game.

MORE CANESPACE FROM 2008:

One of the strengths for the University of Miami football team going into the 2008 season is the talented and diverse stable of running backs returning to the Canes next year. With dependable Javaris James, multi-talented Shawnbrey McNeal, elusive Craig Cooper and speedy Lee Chambers all competing for playing time, the battle in the backfield will be both exciting and entertaining to watch in practice.

86Cane

MORE FROM 2008 FROM THE BLOG:

Speaking of which, Coach Hill will also get his hands on a boat load of new talent coming to the Canes courtesy of the excellent recruiting class of 2008. The talented gang from the 305 is lead by Aldarius Johnson and Kendall Thompkins from MNWHS and Thearon Collier and Davon Johnson from BTWHS.

And don't forget about Travis Benjamin either. Word on the street is the kid has mad skills, blazing speed and is elusive as can be. He has already been penciled in by some as the Canes starting punt returner for 2008.

MORE FROM JANUARY 2008:

Now suddenly, after weeks of no news at all, and fresh off his trek deep into Kansas to snatch up coveted LB Aurthur Brown, Randy Shannon has hired Kansas defensive coordinator Bill "Forever" Young. Young, who will leave behind the Jayhawks players, Coach Mangino and the cold, grey town of Lawrence, Kansas agreed on Thursday to coach the Canes defense in 2008.

In interviews following his decision, Bill and his wife Lawana Young stated they wanted a challenge and a change of scenery. Both of these will be offered in bunches by the small, private university located in warm, sunny Coral Gables known affectionately as The U. Now, Forever Young (or Mr. Bill, we haven't decided which one will stick yet) will have to get busy fixing a defense that simply was offensive to watch in many games last year. Giving up 51 points to the Sooners in Norman? Ugly. Down 27-0 against UNC at the half? Disheartening. Losing 48-0 to Virginia in the final game at the Orange Bowl? Mind numbing.

Coach Young replaces coach "Timmy" Walton who was dismissed from his duties by The Boss after a disastrous 2007 campaign. Walton, as many of you know, has landed in Memphis and will coach the Tigers defense in 2008. Young will take over Walton's former players and the star studded recruiting class of 2008.

The Dude

86,

The sad part is that all the hype was right. The 2008 class was oozing talent including AJ. Coach Shannon just couldnt get more out of them.

Is Davon Johnson the best WR in 2012 for UM? Stuff like this is why I still don't write off the Dyron Dye's of the program no matter how many chicken nuggets they skip lines to eat.

CANESPACE FROM SPRING GAME 2009:

Wide Receiver: If there was ever any doubt let it be known: Thearon Collier can ball. Be ready to see him early and often in games this season making tough catches over the middle and moving the chains. This fearless slot receiver might be the missing link that finally allows the outside recievers to get open and get deep this season.

And wouldn't we LOVE to see some of that with LaRon Byrd, Travis Benjamin, Davon Johnson, Tommy Streeter and my personal favorite Aldarius "Glue Hands" Johnson scoring a quick six. Here, for the first time ever on any blog, a perfect view of the soon to be famous six million dollar (projected NFLU signing bonus) glue hands!

And by the way, don't forget WR Kendal Thompkins who caught a pass (as predicted) and WR Leonard Hankerson who made a nice leaping catch for a big gain during the "game". The Canes are loaded at wide-out and will take advantage of other teams secondaries in 2009.
