Well, complete war is a little overstated, lol, but is was much more so than now. In the North they instituted a draft for men 18-45 but you could buy your way out for $300 or hire someone to fight in your stead. This country has always pandered to the rich. The South did this also, except in the South it was if you own 20 slaves then you weren't drafted. This caused riots in the Union and only about half of Southerners showed up when drafted because of the rules of the draft. Imagine that, slave holders unwilling to fight for what was generally their own d@mn cause.

And honestly it goes back to Kennedy who first sent troops to Vietnam. Its very hard to win a war as an occupier w/o the full support of the people in your nation and the occupied. A couple of examples here. Imperial Japan only surrendered not because of 2 atomic bombs, but because their emperor asked his people to bear the unbearable. He helped to facilitate surrender against the wishes of his generals who would have sacrificed every man, woman and child in Japan. In the Civil war, things got really personal and Grant basically had to ruin the South and set it on fire for them to realize that they were completely defeated. In both instances the nation was at complete war. In one, the occupied Japanese accepted defeat because their leader was absolute and they obeyed him, otherwise there would have been a lot more deaths. In the South, they unfortunately showed they needed to be completely ruined to surrender. They eventually even got the Union troops out of the South with the election of Hayes and the compromise that followed. Think about that last one. America had trouble occupying America.

The Dude

I think if invading Iraq and Afghanistan required no new cars to be built since 2001, people would be less likely to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. If you couldn't bake a cake on your kid's birthday because the flour, butter, sugar and baking supplies were all rationed then people would be way more focused on winning the d@mn war.

It means that they ask very little of our citizenry during times of war. Very little sacrifice. That supporting the troops is little more than saying you do. That we don't put the country at war, just the military. The government also does its best to hide the war from the public.

CaneRock

Personally, I think most people are living the lives the government wants them too and have wanted them too since L.B.J. was president.

Posted by: The Dude | July 03, 2014 at 09:23 PM

What's that mean?

The Dude

I used the wrong "too" twice, dang!

The Dude

Did you guys know Zamperini was a P.O.W. with legendary Marine Corps pilot Pappy Boyington?

As far as sacrifice goes, a lot of the sacrifices that were made by the citizenry of America during WW2 would likely be considered unconstitutional now. Especially if THIS president were to enforce the same stuff, lol. Personally, I think most people are living the lives the government wants them too and have wanted them too since L.B.J. was president.

Thought about American Pride while watching the Columbians show such emotion for their country during their national anthem at world cup.
If your heart doesnt swell with American Pride on July 4th or when you hear the Star Spangled Banner, or you have no desire to salute the American flag then you may need to check your patriotism and salute the country and folks like Louis Zamperini who sacrificed for you and yours!

Amidst all the worry about 17 year olds getting enough attention and whose getting 10 million instead of 20 million dollar contracts. It's good to remember who the real heroes are.

RIP Louis Zamperini

Zamperini was born in Olean, N.Y., in 1917 to Italian immigrant parents. After a youth that involved run-ins with the law, Zamperini took up running and became the youngest American qualifier for the 1936 Berlin Games, running the 5,000 meters at age 19.

When war broke out, he enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Forces and was sent to the South Pacific as a bombardier aboard a B-24 Liberator. In 1943, his plane crashed in a remote stretch of ocean. Zamperini and two others survived a harrowing 47 days in an open raft until washing up on a Japanese-occupied island. They were immediately taken prisoner.

UMIKE TRIED TO TELL U:

Gossier is friends with a lot of current Miami targets and commits, but one guy he wants to bring to Coral Gables with him for sure is Cardinal Gibbons defensive end Richard McIntosh.

Miami knows Gossier still has a lot of work to do before he reaches his full potential, but Gossier will be a defense's worst nightmare 3-4 years down the road. Size, big sure hands, and determination are going to take Gossier far in his football future.

Who would go to Kentucky? and for what reason? Its not like they have had a good program or that the school is good. I know what it is, half the states population is hooked on Oxycontin, they can get the good stuff there. If you played hoops I could see it. Now if god were to relocate to Lexington I would consider it. Word is he has and will not be moving there. Sad a good player would go to a school like UK to play football.

WINTER HAVEN | When "The House That Ruth Built" was rebuilt, it sent a message to the sports world that state-of-the-art facilities matter more and more.

Two of Polk County's most highly recruited athletes — Chance McSpadden and Luke Hiers — made verbal college commitments last week, and both said their final choices were heavily influenced by the major upgrades to the university venues.

Hiers, a Lake Wales rising-senior lineman, pledged to play football at Kentucky after two visits to the Lexington campus and the new-look Commonwealth Stadium, which is experiencing a $110 million transformation.

The stadium is receiving a new facade, luxury suites, club seating, press box and recruiting room, which overlooks the team entrance to the field, not to mention a chic space-age look and feel.

"For the spring game, their fans were really into it," said Hiers, who was there April 26. "All the seats that were available, because they were working on the stadium, were full. There were 42,000 at the spring game and they cheered my name."

The 6-foot-4, 280-pound 2012 Maxpreps.com All-American lineman claimed 13 major college offers, including Louisiana State, South Florida, Miami, Massachusetts, Marshall, Toledo and Syracuse, but he opted to play center at Kentucky.

T.J. Simmons has made his decision.

Lakeland Christian running back T.J. Simmons breaks away from a Berkeley Prep defender for an 80-yard touchdown run in September. The running back decided that he will attend UCLA.

The highly recruited four-star running back out of Lakeland Christian chose UCLA on Monday as the place where he'll continue his education and football career.

Simmons, who enters his senior season at Lakeland Christian this fall, had offers from more than 20 other schools, including Florida, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Miami. But he committed to the Bruins after attending a camp on campus during the weekend.

It was UCLA running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu, the uncle of Pittsburgh Steelers star Troy Polamalu, who helped land Simmons' commitment.

Simmons' commitment might surprise many people around him.

He was expected to commit to Florida and Gators coach Will Muschamp.

"It caught the whole country by surprise," said Simmons, who announced his decision via his Twitter feed. "I wanted to be different."

Simmons has rushed for 2,744 yards and 31 touchdowns in his career at Lakeland Christian.

Remember the "Toxic Differential" equation from Brian Billick from yesterday? Remember I told you that FSU had it down pat?

FSU was 3rd in turnover margin at +17.
UM was 32 in T/O margin at +5.

FSU was 1st in fewest passing yards allowed at 9.8.
UM was #90 in passing yards allowed at 12.2 per completion (more pass plays of 20 yards or more explosive plays allowed on defense).

FSU was #4 in passing yards on offense.
UM was #5 in passing yards on offense.

So UM was only close to FSU in ONE of the three categories. So to improve their "Toxic Differential" and get closer to competing against FSU UM MUST:

1. Increase their Turnover Magin by 10 this year (from +5 to +15).

2. Decrease the passing yards allowed by about 3 yards per catch or 90 yards/game or about 1000 yards this season.

3. Keep up the BIG passing plays on offense.

Nash...

After signing linebacker Terry McCray in the 2014 class, it is evident the Miami Hurricanes staff is trying to re-establish a pipeline at Blanche Ely high school in Pompano Beach.

Now, Blanche Ely has another stud that the 'Canes have picked up early in the 2015 cycle.

Therrell Gossier is a 6-foot-5- 200 pound beast of a wide receiver, who excels in basketball and track for the Tigers.

Gossier holds offers in football from the likes of Clemson, Kentucky, Nebraska, and West Virginia.

However, late this past month, Gossier visited Miami in hopes of an offer. Two days later, the 'Canes called offering Gossier and he wasted no time and committed on the spot.

"I took an unofficial visit, so the coaches got to show me around the school again. Then a couple days later the coaches called me to say they wanted to offer me and I didn't want to waste any time and I committed right away," said Gossier.

Gossier is an obvious redzone threat with his monstrous size, but while watching him at the Coach Mac 7-on-7 in Pompano Beach on Saturday, June 28th, fans and coaches realized that he could burn opposing defenses over the middle of the field.

Gossier is not one-dimensional by any means. Blanche Ely does a great job of using him by giving him post routes, fade routes, slants, hitches, and Gossier uses his basketball instincts and big frame to "block-out" opposing defenders.

"I'm a real explosive receiver and I'm working hard to make sure that I can play right away when I get to Miami. For me, I just want to help UM get back to the way they were back in the days," said Gossier.

"Miami is great for me because what they offer is so much more than football. They have great academics which I'm going to need down the road. The campus also is great. The classroom size was nice too because now I know my professors can be working with me 1-on-1."

Gossier is friends with a lot of current Miami targets and commits, but one guy he wants to bring to Coral Gables with him for sure is Cardinal Gibbons defensive end Richard McIntosh.

Miami knows Gossier still has a lot of work to do before he reaches his full potential, but Gossier will be a defense's worst nightmare 3-4 years down the road. Size, big sure hands, and determination are going to take Gossier far in his football future.

I'd say our fullback was a beast and if not, what is the definition of a beast fullback? Dude blew people up for 3 years.

VA Cane

GC I sure hope so. The talent is getting better, we have to get into a dynamic scheme to make it happen. I like dynamic aggressive hard hits blitzing out of my base; when I dial it up we kill people. I would like to see it get better this year. I think there are some additions that are going to be a lot of help in doing that.

06:50 4 01:34 MIA 25 4 7 Turnover on Downs
01:04 4 01:02 MIA 29 8 55 Turnover on Downs

Go Canes

VA Cane I really doubt that's the kind of defense we will see this season and in years to come.

When you see guys like AQM, Thomas, McCord, Grace, Burns and Carter growing along with the rest of the young, fast, big and most importantly TALENTED players we are finally beginning to stockpile, we will be able to make more plays from our base defense, take more chances blitzing and generally be much more aggressive than we have been in the past.

Gin & Tonic

Its sad when fans have a hard time finding confidence in a Miami defense to get off the field on 3rd and long. So many times we had them right where we wanted them and time after time would just give up a huge chuck and let the drive keep going. So yes.. 3rd down will be critical.

Posted by: UMike | July 02, 2014 at 10:51 AM

Is this worse than 3rd and short on offense; getting stuffed and having to punt?

VA Cane

And if they press, the DB gets beat and the only thing between him and the end zone is Highsmith or Rogers?

And that drive started after your offense had it's third straight 3 and out so your d is already winded?

Well I guess you keep playing that soft zone, no QB pressure, going 9-4, 7-5, 6-6, losing to FSU, Duke, VT and Loiusville, producing no NFL talent, keep drinking the Kool Aid, believing in the process, getting no premier talent, remain totally blind to real fundamentals and winning 58% of your games over the next 4 years? No Thanks!!!!
Time to roll the dice baby, time to grow up be a man come out of the womb and let go of mommys tit!!!!!!
As for me I will keep winning at 97% and teaching what these guys do not teach, comprehend or vaguely understand.....Fundamentals.

Posted by: Go Canes | July 02, 2014 at 02:20 PM

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Ex-Florida and New England Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez, jailed while awaiting trial in the killings of three men, is Mr. July in the Gators' 2014 sports calendar and is featured in a Patriots calendar produced by the same company.

The University of Florida said Tuesday that officials approved the publication months before he was charged with murder, and the Patriots said they would not comment on matters involving Hernandez.

The calendars are still available for sale through Target.com and feature tight end No. 81 in the Gators' white jersey and blue pants with an orange stripe carrying the football under his right arm and almost looking into the camera. It includes his height, weight and hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.


This is typical UF BS.

One last shot.. lol... On 3rd and 7 when the CB is 10 yards from the LOS and then backpedals... QB hits an easy out route for 8 yards and the 1st... is that lack of talent also?

Sitting back in a zone playing Tampa 2, cover 2 or deep 1/3 - 2/3 will not work today....you are gonna cover zones especially with your LBs.....but damn your 2 corners should be good enough to go man on their 2 best the whole game!!!! Man up FS on TE.....allows for a lot of blitzes....I like pressure on QB and WRs not some passive umbrella zone!!!!!!

NEW ORLEANS -- An arbitrator has sided with the New Orleans Saints in ruling that Jimmy Graham can only be considered a tight end for the purposes of his franchise tag designation.

The ruling Wednesday by Stephen Burbank is setback for Graham, agent Jimmy Sexton and the NFL Players Association, who'd filed a grievance arguing that Graham was used as a wide receiver often enough to qualify for the more lucrative receiver tag.

NFL franchise tags, which allow teams to keep one prized free agent, was set this year $7 million for tight ends and $12.3 million for receivers.

The NFLPA says it's reviewing the ruling and will advise Graham on his options, which could include an appeal.

Graham has skipped Saints offseason practices while holding out for a new contract.

IMO we had better results blitzing vs sitting back!

Also I'd rather go down swinging vs not getting one lick in!!!!

And we were without Dorsett & Duke the last part of the season, also, we didn't have Coley for much of that Duke game. So that explains some things...

Agree 100%.

This year add all of the new OFFENSIVE talent into that mix and it should be like the Fourth of July...KABOOM!!!

SOUP, I like that Brian Billick piece. But I will add, to produce explosive plays, you need explosive players. And we were without Dorsett & Duke the last part of the season, also, we didn't have Coley for much of that Duke game. So that explains some things...
