WHAT!...A!...FREAKIN'!...GAME!!!

BTW...FIRST!!!

SOUP

NO VA = Doesn't go, but can WIN!

UNC = Until Next Championship.

Sarasota 'cane

I can't stand to look at Mark Emmert. I'm not sure how he escaped all the B.S. he cooked up against UM. Oh well, great game!!

CaneRock

I'd rather lose by 20 than like that...WOW!

Great article. When there is any contentious debate about anything on Canespace, all you have to say is "Sean Taylor " and you have complete silence, agreement and reverence for one of the greatest players to ever put on ANY football uniform.

Terrance Sullivan

Well said Big Windy Cane!

Terrance Sullivan

How about those Onions Double Order Sautéed BOL hahaha! Bill Rafferty is Gold on the Mic!

thirstybuzzardcane

^^^^Love that guy!

Terrance Sullivan

Yesss Bill Rafferty Rules!

Go Canes!

What a freaking game.

Nova was just on fire the whole tourney. They were the best team in the tourney from the first second of the first game til the final second of the last one.

The team that won it deserved it.

Now it's time to enjoy the summer and start the countdown til football season!'

VfB_Cane

So it turns out the basketball team lost to the eventual national champion.

You'd figure the Canes would get some love, but no:

Four (4) ACC Teams in their top 7 (of which we beat 3 this past season at least once), but Coach L's squad not even in the top 25. Us against the world again, I suppose.

*******************************

That's crazy talk.....losing by 20 means never being in the game with 0 chance to win.

CaneRock

ST26 beat FSU by Himself that day.

Go Canes!

Chirinos: I still cannot get over how much bigger Stacy Coley looks.

Go Canes!

Btw, stealing words from the great Stuart Scott, this has to be the ultimate "being cooler than the other side of the pillow":

^^^ NO CHANCE I couldn't react. Not one single chance.

CaneRock

Watching that shot again, NOBODY picked up Jenkins. I understand not picking Him up in-bounding the ball, but sheez, at least pick em' up at halfcourt.

Lur-ker

^^^^^^^

Probably in a zone, where you wouldn't pick up someone as far away as center court, anyway, I'll have to re-watch, but if I remember correctly the guard had 2 defenders close to him and did the exact right thing passing,
giving the shooter, a killer 3 point shooter, a great look at an open 30 footer.

That was a designed play with the shooter being the primary option, imo

VA Cane

Good day all you all seem well. i read comments not saying a lot in order to keep the ship upright.

Great game glad Nova won, Cinderella at the ball again! Nice. This is why you watch the game....college so much better than the so called pros....Lebron, Mellow, CP 3, even Wade....DRAMA QUEENS galore. Hate that part.

I have moved out of my house, Bank of America and I, after 6 years of trying to modify the loan parted. They are jerks...yes my fault for getting behind, but they never tried to help anybody. Got a house out a little further in the country....gonna try some of my magic on the program out here...if possible.

I am good waiting watching reading....fresh start for me! Will be in touch, love to my family!

Great great article 86 he was my fav along with Rohan!

SOUP

VA Cane...good to hear from you!

Be well and stay thirsty my friend.

IF you lose, always better only if they celebrate like they won the title by scoring as the horn goes off.

You remain a loser however, only worse fates are being any amount sid-tard or a half human/donkey chimera spawn delivered in a Tijuana vet school.

Acc fans cheer for loser bridesmaid schools in the best case, maybe Jim Morris rescues some respectability for this place again but he doesn't coach a revenue sport so on that technicality wait until next year it is already.

Faulktard always brings the batshlt crazy. If he had any sense of honor I would suggest seppuku so he could at least bring a small measure of dignity to his life, unfortunately that shop has sailed.

Posted by: Lur-ker | April 05, 2016 at 12:37 PM

Correct.

It probably wouldn't have mattered if somebody did pick em' up, Nova was hitting tough shot after tough shot the whole tourney...probably some of the best collective guard play I've seen in a Tourney.

Lur-ker

Posted by: CaneRock | April 05, 2016 at 04:15 PM

The guard play was insane.

Talking about insane, don't forget the crazy shot that UNC hit to tie the game. Check this picture out:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/05/sports/ncaabasketball/unc-villanova-national-championship.html

Insane elevation with his legs all twisted up.

Lur-ker

Actually you'll have to scroll down, about 4 pics down, is the Marcus Paige shot I was talking about

Herbieibis

Officials swallowed their whistles in the first half, when it came to nova. The game was called better in the second half but the first half Vegas had those zebras on their back pocket but give nova credit they hit those 8 to 10 footers in the lane all night. The acc has now choked away 2 ships.

Lur-ker

Totally disagree about ACC choking away 2 ships, and I'm no ACC apologist either.

That was no choke job by UNC last night, they staged a furious come back when they were down almost double digits with less than two minutes left. Then they lost in the last second on a tough, long distance tre. Nobody would classify that as a "choke" job. I'm just being fair.

Also, Duke won last year, so.....

BigWindyCane1

Ritch and DIAZ singing the praises of the new early enrollee LBs. I don't know if that means they are that good or whether it means the current LBs are that bad? Maybe it's both. I knew they were good and would get playing time but never thought they would be the best LBs after Grace, who has All ACC potential. We will see in the fall, but I am still excited

Go Canes!

UNC had their best game all season by a gigantic margin from
3 and still lost.

Nova was the better team and won.

That's pretty much it.

Remember, Owens will not be at full speed until the late summer or fall. He was really making noise before he got hurt. Hopefully he'll be 100% by September, because we do need the depth.

Barry...with the operative word being,"seem":

"With Darrion Owens out, UM coaches seem less than thrilled with the other veteran linebackers except Jermaine Grace, of course."

I am an optimist. I take these negative reviews as signs that our new coaching staff have a good eye for evaluation. That they can see the deficiencies clearly. ...and that they will be able to train up what they have and recruit better ...and in a few years, we will have championship caliber teams.

TonyCane

I'm not certain what to think yet on the 2016 Canes. The fan in me wants to say 10-2 to 14-0. But realistically, I look what happened at other big programs that were struggling when a top coach took over. Bob Stoops, Nick Saban, and Pete Carroll went 6-6. It was year two that the big improvement came. So there is part of me that can easily see the program stalling at 7-5 in year one of CMR before taking off.

The troubling thing remains the offensive line. Without improved play it doesn't matter if Michael Irvin, Clinton Portis, Edge, Shockey, and Andre Johnson were playing with Kayaa. If they can't block, the offense does nothing.

Thoughts?

Terrance Sullivan

TonyCane U do realize all three teams had losing records the year before said Coaches came in not 8-4 regular season and 8-5 after Bowl Game that we should have won if I don't know James Coley decided to call a Half Back Pass in a Driving Snow Storm but yea according to U it was the Offensive Line Fault or the drive before that when we had receivers unnecessarily blocking in the back but that was the Offensive Linemen fault according to U, I guess having our smaller backs running dive plays that should be designed for full backs and bigger running backs but instead we either don't use or bigger backs or we had them running sweep plays but according to you that's all the Offensive Linemen fault. Refusing to get in a I formation in Goal Line Situations and wanting to stay in that pistol bull ish is also the Offensive Linemen Fault too right. Way to Give James Coley a pass there. Smdh.

CaneRock

LOL...and let's make believe that Alex Gall never got thrown 5 yards into the backfield time & time again...let's make believe that the pip squeak DLman from Cincy never walked Odogwu into Kaaya's lap...let's make believe that somebody blocked the best DT in the Country (Lawson) when Kaaya landed on His coconut and got a concussion...yeah, let's blame Coley for all that and then some.

CaneRock

And last I checked, Coley's offense scored more against GT (38), than Richt's offense at UGA (13).

Ohio_Cane

And last I checked, Coley's offense scored more against GT (38), than Bobo's offense at UGA (13).

Posted by: CaneRock | April 06, 2016 at 03:37 PM
------------------------------------------

Fixed that for U.

And I don't know what it has to do with anything.

CaneRock

Schottenheimer was the OC at UGA last year, not Bobo. Doesn't matter, it was still Richt's team, and I seriously doubt Richt didn't have heavy input on playcalling at UGA...despite the "He was running the AD's offense" excuse.

Ohio_Cane

U knew what I meant.

Terrance Sullivan

Yea and we scored 14 against a Horse Shit Wazzou defense. Cut the Bullshit CR!

Go Canes!

That UGA-GT comparison is pretty shortsighted in my opinion.

I believe Richt was 12-3 or 13-2 in 15 matchups against Tech.

That being said, in my opinion we are only going to get to double digit wins if Kaaya has a Heisman type season.

We are too thin at CB/Safety, talented but too raw at LB, have virtually no experienced deep threats at WR, we seem to be devoid of any true OTs and we'll be transitioning to a new scheme and new coaches.

The positives we have is we'll have nearly the entire first half of the season to get ready for a brutal run beginning in October.

We're one or two recruiting cycles from getting the depth of talent we are going to need to be serious contenders. The part that sucks is when that happens, we'll once again be breaking in a new QB.

Going to be an interesting season for sure.

Hoping our offense lights things up and we can surprise ND or FSU this season, along with the wins we can and should get.

Terrance Sullivan

LOL how many points did the Defense set up for our Offense against GT. Boy Y'all on that Bullshit today. If James Coley so Fucking Great why is he a WR Coach and not a OC and QB Coach. Pure Fucking Comedy. Of Course the OL was bad but blaming the Offensive Linemen for all the Offensive Woes is the dumbest shit ever. Evidently U Guys wasn't watching the Damn Games. Fucking Pathetic.

Terrance Sullivan

Sorry for the language but to place all the blame on the OL even though I acknowledge it was subpar to our Offensive Woes is laughable at best. The constant giving passes to James Coley is laughable. He was just as awful as Mark D'Onofrio. Don't get it Twisted. If I need to be banned I understand just tired of all the lame excuses and passes given to some bit only want to dog out others. Smh.

SinisterCane

LOL Football season is upon us

SinisterCane

Every centimeter of the team sucked under Faildon, I still believe Gall is on the team

CaneRock

LOL...as if D'Onofrio just started sucking when Coley got here...He sucked when Fish was here, TOO!...LMAO!

SinisterCane

^^^^^^^
I still can't believe

SinisterCane

I believe NOFENSE is still unemployed

Terrance Sullivan

Yes D'Onofrio sucked the whole time no doubt.
