We got way more than steak dinners and those kids were not starving!

Way worse. Steak dinners to hungry kids vs impeding the fundamental reason for a school's existence.

Posted by: Lurker | November 12, 2014 at 04:09 PM


Well, he made a joke -- a mockery, even -- about the fundamental reason for the school's existence. (Which, being UNC, is of course the basketball team.) I haven't really seen anything about Butch IMPEDING that fundamental reason for UNC's existence.

Anyhow, I'd still rather see him as coach than Al Golden.

Happy to be of service.

I mean, I'm willing to give Al Golden a chance, given the past few weeks' radical improvement in get-up-and-go. But Butch doesn't need a chance; he's proven it -- give him access to South Florida's recruiting area, and he can build an NFL football team at a small, private college.

Good point. Both scandals come down to competitive advantages.

Miami - Involved recruiting, parties, some money and sordid activities. Potentially could have swung recruits towards us.

UNC - Paper academic classes allow kids to completely focus on football with no regard to studies. There's no issue with anyone having problem with grades, because the scores are always good.

As a canes fan, you buy into this? These were allegations that were NEVER substantiated, or don't you keep up? I can't believe the ignorance of some of our own fans. The only thing that was documented to be true were things like meals, used washer and dryer, all basically penny ante stuff. All the hooker, abortion, etc, stuff never even came close to being shown to be true.

Or did anyone here actually read the NCAA report?

Lurker, they were nonetheless allegations, and CaneRock was asking whether UNC's recent TRUE allegations stacked up against those FALSE ones.

If you're going to be a dick, read more carefully.

dj moonbat

BTW, I think both UNC's and UM's recent scandals pale in comparison to MIami's '90s Pell Grant scandal. There, UM not only had NCAA violations, but an employee defrauding the taxpayers.

Why not? There's nothing new to say about the FSU game. They're not as good as they were last year, but they're still pretty good. We can beat them if we play really well, and we can't if we don't. Everybody knows these things are true.

Lurker

If you're going to be a dick, read more carefully.

Posted by: dj moonbat | November 12, 2014 at 10:10 PM

And if you're going to be an illiterate, you need to read more slowly and carefully. The comment Butch made was NOT an allegation. He admitted it. If you go back and read my posts, you'll see.

It's pretty pathetic when an alleged canes fan, uses unproven allegations to back up a guy who hasn't set foot on campus in 15 years.

Get over it. Butch is NEVER going to coach at Miami.

The Dude

^^^ where does the venom come from on this blog?

jcane

This isn't a week to worry about Butch. This is FSU week, and it's Golden's chance to sink or swim. Can't be a UM fan if you're hoping he sinks just to be right. I haven't always been thrilled, but I hope he'll turn out to be the best coach in UM history over the next decade. Win, win, if so....

A win not only makes this season a good one with a strong ending potentially for the first time in years, but also begins to show Golden can win a big one and influences recruits to potentially help the next few years. HUGE game, and what went on at UNC doesn't matter to me right now.

It wasn't "substantiated", because the NCAA doesn NOT have subpoena power. IOWs, they're not a law enforcement agency...IOWs, you don't have to SAY $H!T!

And for the record, I wasn't "backing up" Butch, but what did I expect, Goldenites just love makin' up shit!...TYPICAL!

Go Canes

When have I ever slammed a Butch supporter?

By reiterating the most obvious thing ever?

I could care less about who supports Butch and feels the need to expend any time and energy on a pipe dream that had less than 1% chance of ever happening BEFORE everything that's come out recently.

Spend all day on it, enjoy.

Good points dj.

TonyCane

FSU after nine games, PF, PA.

And note the difference year over year:

2010: 6-3, 303-178
2011: 6-3, 323-142
2012: 8-1, 403-108
2013: 8-1, 403-168
2014: 6-3, 341-198


198 - Highest point total that FSU has given up in five years. And one point MORE than Miami gave up this year.


FSU IS BEATABLE!

Obviously meant to write 9-0 for this year, but you get my point!

Lurker

It wasn't "substantiated"

Posted by: CaneRock | November 12, 2014 at 10:38 PM

So we're in 100% agreement. It wasn't substantiated. There was zero proof. Zero.

Glad you support the canes then, instead of throwing them under the bus over totally unproven allegations. Because only our competitors do that.

We're good.

SJMPARMAN

I respect Butch Davis in the same way I respect Howard, Jimmy, Dennis for building championship teams at UM but I am a Golden fan this week. I don't think no matter how many times he repeats his position that Lurker will ever convince Butch Davis is some evil guy. He's just not that to me.

I have a sneaky suspicion we win the game. Big games are won when your best player helps you win the game. Duke will get his yards. Duke is number 7 in rushing yards with 1213 yards. Karlos Williams is 110 with 520 yards. Yearby is 157th with 421 yards. Dalvin Cook is 161st with 416 yards. Miami averages 199.3 yards per game rushing. FSU averages 129.9 yards per game rushing. We have a huge advantage in the running game.

In pass efficiency, Kaaya is 11th with 2087 yards, with 20 tds and 9 ints and a 157.6 QBR. Winston is 21st with 2540 yards, with 17 tds and 11 ints, and a 150.8 QBR. I don't see this matchup as much more than a draw. Both guys will make their plays and a mistake here or there.

So if Miami can run, can FSU defend it? Rushing defense stats. Miami - 31st, allowing 131.9 yards a game on the ground. FSU - 35th allowing 135.7 yards per game. In the games I have watched FSU this year, it seems they are more vulnerable to the run compared to the last few years.

So if Miami and FSU can pass, who can defend better? Miami is 18th in pass efficiency defense, allowing 9 touchdowns with 8 ints and a 107 rating. FSU is 65th in pass efficiency defense, allowing 15 tds to 9 ints and a 126.8 rating. Miami is 11th in total defense and FSU is 49th.

Stats are just stats and all but some of them seem to favor us. I like our chances.

WWIN

Got em both now! Done!

CaneRock

One thing I do know going into this game, FSU's gonna win the kicking game. Maybe we can break one on a punt, but I don't see us getting many opportunities on KOR.

Hate to say it, but that's true. FSU is the only relevant team in the conference. If we beat them, who else is there? Duke? clempson?Nothing we can do will put us in the national conversation this year. If we win, and build on the victory maybe next year will be different... the ACC is weak.

Lurker

SJMP, I like Butch and I appreciate what he did to bring in the talent to win our last ship.

But the perception, based in part on his own missteps, is that he's tainted. He will never be our coach. He wouldn't even be a candidate for this or any other major jobs, and that was even before all the latest stuff came out.

If for some reason Golden leaves, Butch will not be on our short list, or anybody else's that matters. That's not hate, that's just how I'm sure it is.

#TrueStory

Lurker

For us to win on Sarurday, every starter will have to play the absolute best game of their careers, and the coaches will have to be almost 100% on their play selection and strategy. Also, our special teams, kickoffs included, will have to be significantly better than they've been all year.

Do that, keep it close, and we have a shot. Remember, FSU has the deeper and more talented team, have won a bunch in crunch time, are the defending champs, and will come out with a huge chip on their shoulders. They have something to prove this week, as if playing a rival isn't enough motivation.

SJMPARMAN

We are not good at Kick of Returns. But we have only allowed the one td, and the return average is only 23.46. FSU is much better at 18.24. Advantage to them. I didn't say all stats favored them and you are right to point to special teams deciding the game.

How many wide rights, wide lefts and other big special teams plays have won these games. I mean, Jimmy Johnson encouraged his starters to play special teams in big games. I always though that was a good plan.

WWIN

Fsu SUCKS!!!!

People are giving em too much credit. They are pretty much a 1 man show, take away Squintston and you have the Clemson game!

Old Skool

TALLAHASSEE – The Tallahassee Police Department says Florida State running back Karlos Williams is not being charged after a domestic battery investigation.

The police released the incident report Wednesday detailing the investigation, which ended because “without a statement or additional evidence there is no way to further this case.” The case remains “Open/Inactive.”

So the Tallahassee police conduction yet another investigation and didn't press charges. Of course not, that's their job.

Instead of ring toss at the tailgates, they should have FSU specific games crab leg stealing, video erasing, bb shooting, girlfriend beating in which one uses an inflatable doll perhaps an impact plate, sledgehammer and bell or perhaps sex chanting in which one stands on a table and yells "F*** Her Right in the P****" at the FSU female supporters.That would make them feel right at home.

Brad has a ways to go before he hits his ceiling, and I'd bet Jameis is close to his.

Seriously, I think Kaaya has a shot at being UM's best QB ever. He's putting up very respectable numbers without spending a single offseason working in Coley's offense. Or in UM's weight room.

If he doesn't have a sophomore slump, he is absolutely going to tear **** up for the next couple of years.

1) The oddest forfeit of the season didn’t even last a half — It may be awhile before we fully learn what inspired Champagnat Catholic, of Hilaeah, Fla., to forfeit against IMG Academy while still in the second quarter. Yes, IMG had already built up a virtually insurmountable 48-8 lead. But did Champagnat throw the white flag because it didn’t want to play the role of whipping boy, or was it because of concern about injury or numbers? One report claimed that Champagnat walked off the field to protest a second quarter call that the coaching staff disagreed with, but that is from one account. Only time will tell if that tells the full story.

I would estimate that big time college programs have cost UM a title game or two since 2001. When you look back at kids like Patrick Peterson who were "canes to the bone" until they and their families were enticed with money and jobs to go elsewhere, I think my estimate of two title games may even be low.
