Go Canes

Create and run the blog, give to the hurricane club, travel to games, buy season tickets....

From what I've read tonight, to be a real fan you have to:

1) Not enjoy any games unless we win them all
2) question the school's commitment because we don't have a bubble
3) Never choose to root for what you feel is the lesser of two evils.
4) Ignore the stat showing we've played the second toughest schedule in America so far.
5) Kind of sort of root for failure.
6)And of course, never attend games.

Lurker...do not say "FSU" and "Ponder" in the same sentence. LOL

SOUP

Go Canes...DING, DING, DING...winner winner, chicken dinner! I guess U summed it all up right there?

Lurker

Boy it would really be nice to beat CaTech, get a little hype going, and have a nice crowd for Jim a Kelly. He sure deserves it. He's been through a lot, not just with his cancer, but with he's been through with Hunter.

VATech up there

I didn't even catch that Soup, good one.

His wife looks nice, though.

Yep. Win this one, hopefully have a big crowd for UNC and get slotted at night.

Great atmosphere and it will be nice not to get fried in the sun.

Now Nick on the other hand is about to get BANNED!

Yes I agree U should ban me for expressing my stupid opinion and calling you out like an idiot. I am foolish and have no clue to what I am doing so I will leave Canespace to much smarter people who know how to blog.

If we lose by 17 to VT there will not be enough vodka in the world to drown my sorrows.

But that will NOT happen. We will win by 17.

That is all.

If that happens you can come on over here soup. I got enough vodka for ya. Just bring some of your waffles and cocaine.

CaneRock

LMAO! @ "Not enjoy any games unless we win them all."

That's funny, I didn't notice you on here when we were 7-0, and ranked #7. I didn't notice you on here, till Al came back with His tail between His legs after PSU said NEXXXXXT! LMAO! And you were quick as hell to pull up Luther's stats 2 games into His NFL career, must've really bothered you that He was on that team that started 7-0, and was ranked #7!...you just couldn't stand it, COULD YOU?! LMAO!

I'm not saying our schedule is super weak, no way its number two. I rattle of several teams that have played harder schedules than us! Who the hell came up with us at number 2? That person is high.

Lol, thanks 1mg. Didnt see you already responded to that.

THERE IT IS RIGHT THERE!

"Fair enough, but when we beat VT by 17 then what will U say?"

"What a great win in the 2016 season," or...

"Man, I'm glad D'Onofrio's long gone."


Sorry Soupers, you left a funny hanging over my head. I just took it.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Nicky,

Settle down my friend. SOUP is messing around with you. Be careful not to go on tangents though, that will get you banned. We need your good old fashioned common sense around here.

CaneRock

Good catch Epi & TD...our SOS being #2 sounded sketchy to me to.

VA Cane

Dude you will have no problem finding 20 acres in Montgomery County...o would suggest find 20 in Giles County....nice remote but easy drive into Bburg off 460......land very reasonable I know realtors and landowners who sell and are connected. You would love it there....home for me....hope to move back.

Made up stat lol

Leaving the emotion out of it, I hate the domers just like any Canes fan, an FSU loss would have been better for us. Why?

1. Anything that derails FSU is good for us
2. Anything that results in preventing FSU winning another NC is good for us.
3. FSU is much more of a threat in recruiting for us than ND, by a country mile.
4. And will probably lose at least one game with their remaining schedule.
5. Anybody that insults the owner is, well, not the sharpest tool in the shed.

There were plenty of reasons to want FSU to lose last night. Having ND win is disgusting, having FSU win another NC is more disgusting.

Interesting, we've gotten damn $40M TAX FREE the last 2 years, but we hollin' bout some broke...Lurker?:

"Expansion allowed the ACC to renegotiate its television deal, a big reason why revenues have increased. All 14 full members are set to receive an average of $20.8 million, up $1.2 million from last year."

Since the blog is about the "facts' lets look at them. If someone had told me before the season we would be ranked 22nd in total defense after 7 games playing the 2nd toughest schedule in FBS I would have taken it. VT is ranked 20th BTW. We are 56th against the run, giving up 156 yards per game. VT is ranked 30th, giving up 123 yards per game. We are 16th in pass efficiency defense and VT is 23rd. We are a paltry 52nd in scoring defense. VT is 19th. We are 66th in rushing offense - 162 yards per game. VT is 77th, 152 yards per game. We are 24th in pass efficiency offense, one better than FSU. VT is 89th. We are 54th in scoring offense. VT is 76th.

Here are the troubling stats. VT is #4 in 3rd down conversion percentage about 26% - we are 71st about 40%. VT is averaging 70 penalty yards per game - we are averaging 78 penalty yards per game. VT is averaging 8 tackles for loss per game ranking 7th. We are averaging 4.6 tackles for loss per game ranking 108th.

By the stats, this shakes up as a game between fairly even teams. But watching VT the other night, I saw a team in disarray. I saw a team that couldn't run (Pitt is ranked high in rush defense) and a quarterback who was very erratic. Meaning, play defense close to the line of scrimmage and you shall be rewarded. I was psyched about our chances. Then D No announces the all is well assessment and that makes me think he won't change the scheme for the VT game the way he did against Duke. I still think we win Thursday. I think what the people who have pronounced Golden a dead man walking forget is that Kaaya, and Duke are special players any team in the country would feel blessed to have (why don't our fans?). Duke is not getting enough rushes in our offense. If we feed him, the victories will come. We have always won big games when we rush the ball well. Thursday should be no different.

SOUP

CANESPACE RULES 2014

Rule #1: Increase average points scored per game by 3 from 34 to 37.

Rule #2: Decrease average points allowed per game by 3 from 27 to 24.

Rule #3: Increase 3rd down conversion rates on offense from 35% to 40%.

Rule #4: Decrease 3rd down conversion rates on defense from 42% to 37%.

Rule #5: Limit turnovers on offense to 20 and have 30 takeaways on defense (+10).

Rule #6: Limit penalties to 5 per game and have less than 500 penalty yards this season.

SOUP

I'm jus sayin...

SJMPARMAN

Btw according to the strength of schedule, posted above, we have played the 14th toughest.

WWIN

When I challenged Go Canes on the this, he replied that he meet Soup at the game but Soup never confirmed it, I guess you have to assume that no one would say such a thing if it wasn't true

Posted by: SinisterCane | October 19, 2014 at 08:23 PM

He never confirmed. If he met Soup he would have taken pictures and posted em!

CaneRock

WWIM...IDC what GC looks like, if SOUP confirms that they met, I'll take His word for it...SOUP?

SJMPARMAN

Okay here is the line.

14. Miami, FL – 96-60, 61.54%

Playing 14th toughest schedule and being 22nd in total defense is still pretty good. Now, the 3rd down conversion percentage allowed is the damning number. That's why Nebraska and GT beat us. They kept the ball from the offense. That has to change Thursday for us to win.

What are we establishing with this? Sorry CR, you know you're my boy, but I'm not so sure this road is worth going down, but I guess I'm not really sure what this is all about either, lol. Maybe I should shutup? SOUP has never met me.

SOUP

To be honest (which I always am), we did NOT meet at the game but I think we have met before and I think I know who it is but I can't say due to confidentiality reasons. I know that does not fix things but it is all I can say right now.

The NCAA method for strength of schedule is based on last years results. Not what this years competition actually is. We are ranked 13 by that method. If we were to look at a ranking of SOS based on the strength of teams this year obviously we would be lower. If we looked at SOS thru this point of the season, I can't imagine it would be in the top 30.

K, there's a few problems here. 1) Its not only a this year problem. Its a years long problem. 2) These stats dont show the stupid things going on in games. 5 safeties, the goal line D, the overall prevent D which doesnt take advantage of our natural advantages. 3) The inability to take away whatever it is that is the other team does well. Like GT & Nebraska.

I could care less how he looks to lol! But I'll take Soup's word too! They was suppose to meet last game but that didn't happen, Go Canes said he was at E5 where KY and some more spacers were, but never met anybody, how did that happen?

But I'm done. End of story lol

Hey, where is Nick?

They met when thru some cosmic coincidence the Awesome Blog Masters of America conference was being held at the same hotel as the International Association of Fake Stat Posters Annual awards banquet.

I'm not gon get into that.

Lol

At least not today, maybe another day. Lol

SOUP

WWIM...I think that Go Canes is a BIG wig in the UM admin so I cannot say he was not there or that he did not try to find me as we are not RIGHT AT E5 but nearby. The bottom line is that if U wanted find me U could but if U did not try too hard then U could not as say U didn't.

Mrs. Feliciano finds me EVERY game so there is that! LOL

If you went to every home game wouldn't you have met Soup by now?

CR, really man, don't double down on your argument. It's not a winner.

$40 million? LOL!! Peanuts. Do you know what it takes to run an athletic program at a major D1 school. You clearly don't. Do you know that money losing programs like WBB, WBV, Swimming & Diving, CC and T&F, among others, have to be supported?

Do you know that a big name school like UM cannot afford to have popular sports like W Softball, gymnastics, men's golf, men's rowing, men's swimming and diving, etc? Why is that? Money.

I'm not saying this to be offensive, but you don't understand what you're talking about at all, and I do. Please stop.

More contributions are needed. From "fans"
