Before SunLife, they had them at Traz Powell, so that might be a possibility again. But they havent announced it yet.

I remember me & the fam went to Lockhart for one of the Spring games. I'm thinking the game was at noon, get there...and the $h!t was over. Ole' Randy with His rise & shine @$$.

In other news....

SPOKANE, Wash. – The family of a Seahawks fan who died after the Super Bowl says he would have enjoyed the dig at the team they put in the last line of his obituary:

“We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike’s untimely death.”

The obituary for Michael Vedvik appeared today in The Spokesman-Review.

His wife Stephanie Vedvik says he would have thought the line was hysterical.

The 53-year-old Kent man actually didn’t see the game. He recorded the game, intending to watch it later, and went to sleep not feeling well, thinking it was indigestion or stress. He died in bed.

He's from the "show-me" side of Nashville, TN.

BINGO lol! Or maybe the "Show-Me" side of Coral Gables. But who am I kidding, Golden has already "Showed Me" what he's about!

Thanks fam! You made a helluva point yesterday, I don't know WTH Soup was talking about lol!

So, according to ITU, we offered QB Evan Sheriffs and he committed. That's our 2015 qb. Very underrecruited and unpolished but has a very nice arm. Needs a MINIMUM 2 years on campus to ever play a down. Career backup at Miami, IMO, but good for depth

Kid has pretty good accuracy. Needs to gain about 40 pounds.

I need to talk to you about this basketball training?

Cane Since 1982

Just watched the new QB's video. Dude is unreal accurate. Does anyone know why a 6'6 QB with a 4.0 GPA and incredible accuracy on a 12-1 team only had offers from VMI and Columbia? Obviously much isn't known on him but I'm trying to figure out his down side.

Cane Since 1982

To watch his video.

He just started playing, he's skinny as a stick, and he looks like he's twelve.

But still. The kid can throw.

Go,GoCanes!

He was injured I believe.

Cane Since 1982

Jacory Harris was skinny as a stick. He cant be much worse.

Fun question.

If you got to build your own all time best COLLEGE team based off former and current Hurricane players; Whose your starting QB? be prepared to defend your pic.

Sinistercane1

Steve Walsh or Ken Dorsey

I have heard two options: The first is on the deck of a Navy aircraft carrier and the second is at Rohan Marley's coffee plantation in Jamaica?

Erickson.

Dude on a Pale Horse

That QB is RAW, but dang he made some really tough throws look easy as hell.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Any QB would be Dorsey, no one competed like him.

Stop doing that.

Cane Since 1982

Sinister you only get one.

Dude on a Pale Horse

It's why Dorsey will make a great coach some day.

Cane Since 1982

Im going with Walsh.

Cane Since 1982

I thought Dorsey first, but I look at all the talent he had that did a lot of work for him.

Cane Since 1982

So no one's going to pick Kyle Wright?

KYcane

I don't think he knows what city he is in. I'll pass on asking for his input.

Posted by: raizecane | February 05, 2015 at 03:35 PM

Yep..that was very strange

KYcane

So 82, how you been?

KY,

Been good. Ive been checking in here to read the articles and a few post, but nothing I wanted to get involved in. NSD always pulls everyone back for a few comments.

Ive got a month left here at Ft Benning and then Im headed up to Ft Drum (upstate NY) to take company command. Im going to freeze my balls off. I think it is a cruel joke by the Army to send a S. Florida kid to Hawaii for his first duty station and then NY.

Cane Since 1982

If your going to go that route 86. Then you have to say Brock Berlin for his come back against his own team.

KYcane

Thanks for your service brother...be well and don't forget your mittens.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Bernie is a good pick too. I pick Dorsey for the little things like leadership and accountability. I loved watching him work the OL on the sideline. Dorsey is the reason I started watching.

SOUP

Brock Berlin.

TonyCane

Not the best quarterback, but I always liked Ryan Clement. He was the most intense QB that we have ever had.

TonyCane

Correct me if I am wrong but I am counting just 70 scholarship players for the Hurricanes in their opening game against Louisville (69 recruits, one transfer). In addition, 2 of them did not play in 2014 due to injury and suspension, and a third player transferred less than two weeks later. I knew that we were under the scholarship limit, I had no idea that we were that far under the limit. And roughly 16 were redshirted. Were we really that low in overall depth?

By my count here's the scholarship players that we had on opening day last season:

Class, Position, Name

2011 DL-Olsen Pierre
2012 DL-Jelani Hamilton
2012 DL-Tyriq McCord
2012 DL-Earl Moore
2013 DL-Al-Quadin Muhammad*
2013 DL-Ufomba Kamalu
2014 DL-Chad Thomas
2014 DL-Mike Smith
2014 DL-Demetrius Jackson
2014 DL-Trent Harris
2014 DL-Michael Wyche
2014 DL-Anthony Moten
2014 DL-Courtel Jenkins

Shirreffs honestly reminds me of Ryan Williams when he was 18. Tall kid, lean, big arm, makes good throws. Needs to learn the game, needs better mechanics. Not mad at all at the pickup. Def better than taking no QB

Terrance Sullivan

Jim Kelly

Ohio_Cane

Tony, GoCanes tried to tell people this a month or two ago, but was met with the normal responses from the masses with anything he posts.

TonyCane

Sorry, left out Ryan Williams. That makes it 71.

TonyCane

Then factor that we lose 12 players this year to graduation, early departure, or transfer. We just added 21. That would bring our total scholarship load to 80.

Between last year and this year (if my count is right), we should be close to having addressed any remaining scholarship sanctions.

TonyCane

All right, one more. Nantambu-Akil Fentress was a walk-on who received a scholarship (right?!) That makes 72 going into opening day.

Still, I had no idea that the roster level may have been this low.

Ohio_Cane

Golden has said this year we will play with around 83-84 and next year were done and will have the full 85

TonyCane

Looking back at each signing classes under Golden, the first two were wrecked by very early departures or failures to qualify. TWENTY ONE of the fifty two players that committed in 2011 and 2012 were off the team within two seasons, and an additional three failed to qualify. The majority came from the 2012 class. It's part of the reason that our roster level was depleted.

2011:
Failed to qualify:2 (Grooms, Kinard)
Left after one year: 1
Left after two years: 4 (Grimble, Finnie, Johnson, Paul) *not counting Botts

2012:
Failed to qualify:1 (Jean-Louis)
Left after one year: 10 (Briscoe, Carter, Davis, Dewey, Dillard, Ivery, Terry, Thompson, Witt, Lockhart)
Left after two years: 4 (Blue, Dortch, Hoilett, Hope)

2013:
Failed to qualify:3 (Bond, Lockley, Griffith)
Left after one year: 2 (Olsen, Sandland)
Left after two years: 1 (Lewis)

2014:
Failed to qualify: none
Left after one year: 1 (Hester)
