I may have mentioned that my mother is buried in the same cemetary in Kendall as Sean Taylor.

ST#26 - Rest In Peace - Gone but not forgotten

A very happy Thanksgiving to all the Canespace family and may all your families be blessed.

Thank you to the military Spacers that serve & protect this great country at great sacrifice to themselves.

Thanks Soup for all your hard work to give us this wonderful forum.

It's great to be a MIAMI HURRICANE!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all at CS. Hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend. Should be some good games to enjoy. Hope we can keep the ship afloat but it will be very cold in PA....we are not prepared for cold weather and that will certainly affect both the O and D.......blocking and tackling people its what matters.

We must play to our strengths, strengths start with fundamentals.

I am enjoying the glow of the SB.....it was a great run for this school. Not sure of next move yet.


Happy Thanksgiving to all Spacers and their families…..

ST26 certainly one of the greatest Hurricanes and DBs to play college football, was on his way to greatness in the NFL for sure.

I hate that he played for Washington....sorry ass city sorry ass team....I never recognize him as a Redskin; he will always be a Cane. He sure dint tackle like the soft easy going arm tackling be nice secondary we currently start....he would have been appalled. The man was a warhead....Night Train Lane, Larry Wilson, Jack Tatum, Ronnie Lott guys who would put your lights out. That's how it has to be played. We may one day see that; solid punishing tackling.....where people do not get up. I have not seen it a lot lately and that's sad.


Maybe instead of a pregame speech, AG can hold a seance and summon the spirit of ST to inhabit our current bunch. Coaches included.


Rip #26

Happy Thanksgiving Canespacers!!

I am hopeful that canes coaches will not allow heaters on the sideline tomorrow! We don't need them, Play some effn football! The fans don't get heaters in the stands.

Go Canes!!

VA Cane

Right on Surfer!!!My 13 year olds have won 5 SBs in pretty cold weather......they are champions. I could meet the team and give a nice seminar on cold weather football. I played in a regional championship in Covington where the temp, with wind chill was about -4 or so. Cold frozen turf, ice, smoke billowing from paper mill behind field dark....we won 14-10 in a great game. I wrote the book on cold weather as it was necessary from where I grew up. Cold is no excuse.....I look at it as an opponent....beat your opponent, by beating Mother Nature that day.

It wears you out the cold does....as Vince L said, "Fatigue makes cowards of us all". You defy normal human fatigue, fear and cowardice.....you go out and win!!!!

Let's hope this 'defy nature' strategy doesn't occur to Pitt.


Happy Thanksgiving CaneSpacers!

Nice bio-piece SOUP. Sean Taylor was an incredible athlete and a Cane who would single-handedly transform our "current" D.

Hope everyone has a chance to enjoy their families...

And, hope our Canes come out ballin' tomorrow!


What's the deal Blogmeister?
Is TypePad eating my posts again?

NEMO's best to ALL today.



Happy Thanksgiving to the Space!


RIP 26 it was an HONOR to watch you play for the Canes.

Happy Thanksgiving to all the space cadets here!


@Surfercane LOL. I don't mind if they have heated benches. It's quite a change to go from 70's and 80's to what they will have (33 is the high for tomorrow). You are right though, play some football, that will keep you warm.

True! The cold sneaks up on you and you are fatigued before you realize it. I learned that ice skating - drinking more fluid than you really think you need helped alot

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!


Nice article. Rip #26. You may be gone, you are never forgotten. Happy thanksgiving canespacers.


Canes 10 Cold Weather 21


To bad out of 100 or so kids on our roster, we don't even have one player close to him, or should I say half as close as him.
To all spacers go fatten up today, get your bellies all greased up, so tomorrow, you can gas up on your favorite beverage and hopefully watch, the dam Canes put everything together, for one day this year. Alas, The Herb is quite disturbed, to have to predict with the erratic Morris at the Helm, and Deno making calls on defense, and Coley mixing in his Vanilla, 1ST & 2ND down runs, The Herb has to say he sees a Pitt eeking out a 28-24 win. Maybe by predicting a loss, someone on the team will actually read this prediction and say F The Herb and it will motivate, them to prove me wrong.


Question for all: if the 1998 squad played this squad - who would win? I said the 98 squad. (Schiano wasn't our DC then, it was the following year - but still)


CGNC - thats hard to answer. 1998 was 15 years ago, Kids today are faster, bigger and stronger…...

orange 'n green in the vein

1998 would win by 10 or more points, easy.

Bigger faster stronger whatever, Butch would own Al every day of the week and twice on Thanksgiving!

He's got those three Super Bowl rings to flash for a reason after all.

Plus Covington had the talent to be a 7000 or more yard passer for his career, Butch just had to make him a backup for depth issue politics due to actual sanctions, not complained about investigations with no real scholarship numbers denied to him at this time, so Scott with his laid back California attitude chilled on the pine with the clipboard for a few years instead of racking up the early career totals for a shot at the record book, unlike the one and only Steven Morris.

Butch is just up the road in Tampa and just an hour South of where U live. Why don't U go pay him a visit, bring some game tape with you and interview him for a blog article after the NFL season is done?



Happy Thanksgiving Everyone…Be Blessed and by the Way…

is Sam Shields not shutting down MegaTron or What… Way2Go Sammy..<<<



Shields just took that one away from Johnson


s/o Randy Shannon…. He gets a lot of hate but lets be real here the stars in the NFL are and will always be Randy's boys so before U hate remember how Great Randy really was….


orange 'n green in the vein

You mean during basketball season 86?

I think you're overestimating the prestige this football program is running on the fumes of these days to fool yourself into thinking I'd bother Butch about it instead of paying attention to the hoops team in the middle of their season.

Besides, not only would I be expecting a medical bill assist when I came down with staph from setting foot in there, but really, it's Wanny we'd want to talk to, offense is doing fine, despite what Sully continues to want to claim to the contrary going into the season finale.


always liked Covington-He used to throw that deep out to Santana was a thing of beauty


UM hoops trying to pull one out against GW

orange 'n green in the vein

Yeah they let that one get away from them and while I hate to point out that Manu didn't get to the line at all, was on the bench when they came back to take the lead from down 12, and his man hit the trying shot on the last possession over him standing on the ground with both hands raised, IT HAPPENED!

I would also like to note at this time the football coach is finding a way to drag down both his team and the basketball team simultaneously now with his decision not to redshirt Elder just so he could burn a year of football returning kicks when there's tons of other options on the team to handle that and some spot duty in yet another atrocious defensive performance this season before blowing out a ligament against the worst ACC team in the conference this year.

Oh, and look at the bottom here;


Yeah. Somehow, some straw gasping individuals will try to argue improvement though, just watch, and try to keep laughing at them.

The 98 team.

I went back and watched them play OSU that year, and MAN! was that defense fast.

orange 'n green in the vein

That was the '99 kickoff classic, week one CR, but yes, the same guys who mattered were on that defense making up the backbone of that side of the ball and they had some struggles but the raw talent was there to show up any day and get enough stops to win against even top tier teams.


OGV, correct, that was 1999.
