NEW BLOG IS UP!

raizecane

I'm still waiting for this new blog I heard was coming....... LOL

UMike

Go Canes... I think all the statements you made are true.. just the timing I was messing with you about lol...I will post where we are, Ima try to meet up with everyone for at least a few.

KY, what time you planning on getting there, 2?

UMIKE - funny bro

Go Canes

UMIke I don't know if I'll be able to make it to you guys before the game, it's going to be so crowded I may get stuck parking on the complete other side of the stadium.

But if you post where you're sitting, I'll do everything I can to get over to you guys between quarters or at halftime.

Go Canes

I'm just wondering which one of those statements aren't true?

The one where they've gotten lucky, the one where they're loaded and have the reigning heisman winner or the one where I say we can win???

Lurker

Nobody needs to make excuses if FSU beats us. They're supposed to beat us. 4 & 5 star talent at every position, 2-deep. Last year's NC, will be ranked 1 or 2. They will come in as fired up as we are.

Let's not get too delusional.

I do believe we have a punchers chance of beating them, but a few things will have to break our way.

Can we do it? Yes, it's possible. But it would be a HUGE upset - don't kid yourselves.

UMike

Weeks ago this was Go Canes...

"FSU is beatable, they should have 2 loses, they have been lucky, we will win"

Now the FSU game is upon us and Go Canes is like...

"They have the reigning Heisman winner, loaded with 4-5 star talent and defending champs"

Got to have those excuses ready JUST in case haha

Just bustin your chops a lil this morning.. looking forward to giving each other shyt in person next week lol

Go Canes

Lol /\/\/\

Go Canes, beat FSU!!

360Cane

Go Canes, please don't bring how good FSU is to the table. I've seen many a team not as good as our Canes kick our tails. Even the great Paul Johnson at GT said something about talent levels when they stomped us.

I'm just hoping the play against crappy ACC teams is not just because it's crappy ACC teams. Show me. []_[]

No excuses. 2 weeks to prepare. 2 weeks. Show me.

Some people want to smoke pot regardless of whether or not they "need" it as a medicine.

Alcohol was also flaunted as "medicine" during prohibition.

There is no reason a pot smoker should risk civil forfeiture and loss of civil liberties for choosing to get high. It's a personal choice. People that do not smoke pot are not going to run out and become pot heads when it becomes legal no more than people ran out and became alcoholics when booze was legalized.

Both alcohol and weed are bad when abused, but you can't black out from weed, you cannot get DT's from weed, you cannot die from weed, and the folks you see on skid row are not there because of weed.

Lurker

Rumors are out there about Jameis shaving points for the first half against Louisville. If someone else doesn't post the link I'll put it up tomorrow. Source may or may not be reliable, but the rumor is making the rounds anyway.

Nobody. It's a joke.

There is a need for more research, phase iii, double blind clinical trials,but it’s impossible to study this drug properly in an atmosphere of prohibition. Plenty of information out there that will tell you how difficult it is to study benefits of a schedule 1 drug. Government makes the classification as well as regulates the approval process for the clinical trials.

The pro-legalization lobby (prospective millionaire owners of medical marijuana clinics) says it's not as effective.

I wonder if demand medical marijuana would be as great if it only came in a suppository.

Posted by: Old Skool | November 06, 2014 at 03:23 PM

It's available as an FDA approved pill. The pro-legalization lobby (prospective millionaire owners of medical marijuana clinics) says it's not as effective. Note that I said "says". While it's true that smoked marijuana is much more rapidly absorbed than the approved pill (Marinol), there is no medically recognized clinical data (phase III double blind, randomized clinical trials for inhaled marijuana) showing even equivalent efficacy to much more effective and studied drugs for things like nausea or appetite loss.

Real world example: go to marijuana "clinics" (Colorado, California) and be amazed at the number of people who are perfectly healthy but suffer from made-up conditions.

Anyway, doesn't matter what I say, sooner or later it'll be readily available everywhere.

While Asian countries kick our ass in science, math, economics and academics in general.

I have been out of the loop with recruiting for a while now, havent even cared. Kinda a relief lol

UMike

Go Canes.. he had the same info back then lol

Go Canes

I agree Ohio. Way too early to stress 2016 kids. We'll see how he feels this time next year when Gibson is switched to WR at OSU.

Go Canes

Yeah two years ago when he was at Columbus High School. He's definitely grown into a great source of info as he's made connections locally and at the U.

Ohio_Cane

And like I've said every year, I'll worry next year about recruits who don't sign for 2 years from now.

UMike

Go Canes.. remember when you thought he was just some kid with no insight? lol

Ohio_Cane

Snelson said yesterday that he had some news regarding his recruitment. And Torrance Gibson just committed to OSU. Snelson going there, I bet.

Go Canes

He usually hits much more than misses, so I expect this to happen:

@PeterAriz: Don't expect Dredrick Snelson to be committed to Miami much longer

Go Canes

Totally agree Ohio. I have no doubt we're going to get their best 60 minutes of the season, we need to give them ours.

If that happens I can live with whatever outcome occurs, I just need to leave that stadium knowing the Canes played their best game of the year when it's over.

If they're better so be it, but losing that game because we didn't do what we're capable of is totally unacceptable at this point of the season.

UMike

Ohio... I was thinking same. I know some of the guys were going back and forth about the FSU game defining our season and all.... I dont think we HAVE to beat them, but I think we have to compete if this whole turn around is real. If they blow us out we will once again be exposed for a team that cannot beat or compete against anything more than mediocre teams. I just pray the coaches do look backwards and keep this aggressive style up

This game is going to host a lot more recruits than the UF game last year, and that was a ton.

It's paramount we either win this game or keep it VERY close and compete the whole game.

Neither here or there. This tells me he thinks if Duke takes care of bit-ness, it will take care of itself.

I'm torn between wanting Golden to tell everyone "Duke should win the Heisman, he's the best there is" and wanting him to say exactly what he said: "Duke is amazing, but I'm focused on our team winning".

Yea Goldens response was weak!!! he could've kept it nice and short by saying if there's anyone more impressive or talented then duke please show me, because i promise you Duke is the best player in the nation!!!!

For the record I do not have a problem with medical marijuana. I think it should be allowed and tightly controlled and regulated for those that REALLY need it.

I have a problem with the law and the way it was poorly written without the proper protocols in place to ensure against abuse of the law.

Duke Johnson for Heisman? Coach Al Golden: 'You're talking to the wrong guy.'

Hurricanes coach Al Golden, never one to dwell on individual awards during the season, was asked a Heisman-related question about Miami running back Duke Johnson Wednesday during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference.

Question: “We’re in award kind of preseason, you might say,’’ the reporter began, before Golden interrupted with a tongue-in-cheek “Awesome.’’

Question continued: “And I know your focus is going to be anywhere but that, but, just, do you think Duke Johnson, right now, has a Heisman case?’’

Replied Golden: “You’re talking to the wrong guy. I don’t even watch TV during the week or anything. I was able to watch some games last week because we had an early game. You guys are the ones that watch all the different teams and get all the different stats. I’m just focused on our program and our team.

“I know he’s playing at a high level. I said it before, we’re privileged to have the opportunity to coach him everyday and be around him. And we’re very grateful for his attitude and the way he’s practicing and it’s hard to imagine anybody playing better right now.

“I’ll leave the rest of it up to you guys. I think he’s having a heck of a year and I know he’s got a lot to prove in his mind over the next month or so.’’

Johnson now is sixth in the nation in rushing yards (1,213) and in yards per carry (7.68), and fifth nationally with 165.1 all-purpose yards per game.

To make your Heisman Trophy vote toward the one vote that Nissan gets, go to this site. Johnson had 1 percent of the fan votes as of Wednesday.

If Johnson has a great game against Florida State a week from Saturday, expect the junior tailback to be firmly in the Heisman race.

I think everyone can agree that children should not be using or abusing ANY drug, be it marijuana, alcohol, prescription, home made, whatever. Those states that have legalized marijuana have adopted similar age restriction laws like alcohol, cant have it under 21, as it should be.

Using marijuana does not make you a loser on its own, just like someone who drinks alcohol doesn't make you an alcoholic.

Have to be responsible adult, with any substance.

Who cares about ER trips in the end. That's not really the issue.

Locking up people for weed nowadays is rare and will soon be non-existent.

CR you're lying to yourself if you don't think weed is an ambition killer. Either that, or you've never smoked it. A lot more people lose their competitive edge because of weed, than lose it because of weed arrests. 99.9999999% of weed smokers have never been arrested. That's a red herring.

Again, making it more available will not be good for the country, but I have absolutely no doubt that within 10 years it will be 100% decriminalized and way more easier to get.

I just hope people realize that this is not innocuous and that it will slowly erode many young lives, people that had shots at making something of themselves will just plod along.
