This one is for ALL Canes fans:

“In this sad world of ours sorrow comes to all and it often comes with bitter agony. Perfect relief is not possible except with time. You cannot now believe that you will ever feel better. But this is not true. You are sure to be happy again. Knowing this, truly believing it will make you less miserable now. I have had enough experience to make this statement.”

Great quotes from a great man who suffered much, but achieved more. A real example to all.

Today is one of the few days of the year when we get to do mostly what we want. Mostly. No chores. All the beer I can drink. Great day.

My last words on the subject...but as far as that terrorist flag, and the CW, I stand by what I said...THAT IS ALL!

Good to read. How many times did we lose 2 - 4 players a year due to failure to qualify?

Posted by: TonyCane | June 21, 2015 at 03:40 PM

It's definitely happened to us in the past. I think almost every top school loses people due to the academics, maybe not every single year, but they do lose them on a pretty regular basis.

Thankful we got everybody in this year, though.

Lur-ker

Oh and Mark Walton may not make us forget about the Duke, but he's going to definitely push the other two guys. I think he'll be getting a lot of playing time by the end of the year. Watch out for this kid.

CaneRock

As far as a pure RB, I think Walton may be better than Duke coming outta HS. Now will He have the same, or better impact that Duke had His freshman year...TBD.

Happy Fatthers Day WWIN!

You can make a dang good NFL team out of former two-star recruits http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2015/6/22/8743525/nfl-two-star-recruits

Here's an interesting read. One writer's opinion on the job Golden is doing in Miami:

http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2015/6/22/8816887/miami-hurricanes-football-2015-preview-schedule-roster

The headline of the article is:

"Al Golden hasn't restored Miami's dynasty, but he's actually doing a decent job"

CaneRock

Maaaaaan, yesterday was the most hateful Father's Day in FB history. I couldn't even enjoy the FB love because of the hate. The most bitter,hateful, drawn out Father's Day I've ever seen. Next year I'ma just personally give out my MVPs...Thank God for CaneSpace!

CaneRock

Reading that article, the OLine concerns me. There's talent there, but I don't see much cohesion in terms of experience together. Kehoe's gonna have to earn that paycheck this year.

CaneRock

As far as the iffy run game that's mentioned in that article, it could've been because teams were stackin' the box, and daring Kaaya to beat em'.

You can run the ball with 7-8 in the box... but when they start loadin' that sucka up with 9-10 defenders, you better be able to CHUNK IT!

herbieibis

The secondary is only going to be good if we can get some consistent pressure on the QB. We have talent in the secondary, our LB's are going to be a big question mark, as well as our interior. We have some talent at DE.
O-line will probably be up and down, because most of our talent is young and relatively inexperienced. We have the backs, the Wr's to excel on Offense. The TE position is a bit of a Concern. As long as we go balls to the wall, we should be okay but if we start that BS, playing not to lose, then at times it could get ugly.

Go Canes

That article is basically everything I feel.

Very thorough and balanced.

CaneRock

Agree with the article on the 3-4 & 5-2 starts...but I disagree on the 4-3 start. I don't see Golden surviving an 8-4...NO signature win...NO ACCC...NO bowl win season. Especially if FSU opens the gap on & off the field in recruiting.

Go Canes

@JordanHeckFF: Andre Johnson said an NFL team made of @MiamiHurricanes could win a Super Bowl. So I put together a team: http://t.co/xNjC5TVRcs

The dog days of summer are upon us! The silver lining is that we are that much closer to kickoff!!

Damn good #s for a 209 pounder:

Jamal Carter

From Rotoworld.

Canes S Carter possesses superhuman strength

Miami junior S Jamal Carter lifts a combined 1,233 pounds between the bench press, squat and power clean.

Seeing as though he only weighs 209 pounds, the strength is noteworthy. Carter began his career as a special teamer and then had 21 tackles and five pass breakups as a backup last year. He should see the field far more often this fall.

Dude on a Pale Horse

Mark & Al are finally listening to sound criticism and are switching to a 1 gap front. I expect the LBs and DBs to play much better based solely on the fact that the opposing QB will have to make faster decisions and the RBs might have a dude change their line. Hopefully Brad, James Coley and the OL get better by practicing against a more aggressive front. I'm a Miami Hurricanes fan. I only am because dominance is a birthright for The U. I'll expect and accept nothing less. 12-0 is as realistic next year as Miami could have been last year. P.S. Tell your family how much you love them. You never know when they won't be there anymore. Seriously, tell someone you love how much you love them today.

CR,

Looks like the flag is coming down. Governor and Senator Graham say take it down.

CaneRock

TD...GOOD! It should've never went up in the first place.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ I agree. Seems like all it ever was was a F-U to the civil rights movement. My Dad's great-great grandfather was in a cavalry regiment from Tennessee. We have his saber, carbine, musket, flag and a few hundred dollars in Confederate money. Now we are a multi-cultural family with blacks, whites, asians and hispanics. We treat these things like historical artifacts. I disagree that the notion that the Civil War was a war over slavery though. An overwhelming majority of people who fought for the CSA didn't own slaves, and as you probably know, Northern whites were mostly very racist. While slavery was a key issue, the war was based on who should decide the future of the American people, the States or the Feds. In Argentina they had similar problems, except the Feds paid the slave owners for their slaves.

Dude on a Pale Horse

I guess the bottom line is that the Confederate flag has different meanings for different people, but I agree that it became a symbol of hate, meant to remind blacks of slavery. It doesn't give me strong feelings one way or another. The American flag could be considered just as offensive to some groups, hower racist groups haven't mainstreamed it's use for hateful purposes. Like these new nazi flags. They aren't really the swastika, which is banned, but they are the swastika too.

I believe...To wealthy slave owners the war was definitely about slavery. Free labor was the corner stone of our great nation. (Check all of our founding father except John Adams.

But, the rich couldn't say to the poor.. "we need to fight-cause those Yankee's are going to cut into my profits"..

But, if you say that those Yankee's are trying to tell me\you how to live, you have something the poor can fight for.

I do respect sincere opinions, even those that differ from my own.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ many poor people relied on a slave economy also.

trianglecane

I understand TD.

6 of the 10 riches people pre civil war were slave owners from SC.

So I agree that slavery was interwoven into the southern economy. that being said I believe that the war was to keep slavery legal.

Congrats, Soup.

For those who really want to understand what the Civil War was about, and truly understand what the meaning of the Emancipation Proclamation was (it was war, and it was a message to create havoc in certain states):

Abraham Lincoln

The Emancipation Proclamation 1863
Context
On Jan. 1, 1863, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln declared free all slaves residing in territory in rebellion against the federal government. This Emancipation Proclamation actually freed few people. It did not apply to slaves in border states fighting on the Union side; nor did it affect slaves in southern areas already under Union control. Naturally, the states in rebellion did not act on Lincoln's order. But the proclamation did show Americans-- and the world--that the civil war was now being fought to end slavery.

Lincoln had been reluctant to come to this position. A believer in white supremacy, he initially viewed the war only in terms of preserving the Union. As pressure for abolition mounted in Congress and the country, however, Lincoln became more sympathetic to the idea. On Sept. 22, 1862, he issued a preliminary proclamation announcing that emancipation would become effective on Jan. 1, 1863, in those states still in rebellion. Although the Emancipation Proclamation did not end slavery in America--this was achieved by the passage of the 13TH Amendment to the Constitution on Dec. 18, 1865--it did make that accomplishment a basic war goal and a virtual certainty.

Let's get some facts straight about slavery in America...

First of all, the first slaves in the AMERICAN COLONIES were actually Europeans...but back then-as most of you should know-they weren't called slaves, they were called indentured servants.

Secondly, the first Africans that arrived on the AMERICAN COLONIES, were NOT slaves, they were ALSO indentured servants. Matter of fact, it's been said that you couldn't tell the difference between a European or African indentured servant. Believe it or not, half the former indentured Africans in Jamestown, were married to white women.

Lastly, before the first European arrived in America, Native Americans practiced some forms of slavery with POWs. Although it wasn't nearly as brutal in what would later be called plantation or chattel slavery.
