58 Straight

It was fun while it lasted, right?


These dumbazzes in Boone think they're going to win


I knew this was coming


Good Morning -=

Looks like Derwin James will be out 5/7 weeks. Will miss our game and possibly Clemson. L-ville might take them Saturday

Mountain Cane

Can't blame him. Folks asked nicely and not so nicely and on it goes. 100s of political blogs and no canes blogs now. Ugh


Man, U take your daughter to her first soccer game last night, and come back to this? Sheesh.


And thanks for the kind words last night UMike, much appreciated.

Finally saw a picture of App State's stadium last night. It may be crazy for them, but I don't see us being rattled by the surroundings.

I think getting 30k in there, even in a standing room only scenario, will be very difficult to pull off.

I think they have legit reasons to feel confident. Don't get me wrong, I believe we will win, but I could surely see why they feel they can.


ESPN Stats & Info ‏@ESPNStatsInfo

That Louisville QB is going to be a problem for them, big time.

Level of competition has been very suspect so far for the Cards, but man has that kid looked impressive.


We ain't losing to a team that plays in a high school stadium with a track around it.

They have zero reason to think they can win.

Should we lose to them, shame on on us.

5 things I loved about our Canes win over FAU this past Saturday: 1. WR Run Blocking 2. Defense was outstanding 3. Offensive Line Run Blocking was good 4. Special Teams was good 5. Good in game coaching adjustments.
5 Things I hated about our Canes win against FAU: 1. 4/11 for 36% on 3rd downs is awful.(we should be going something like 7/11 on 3rd downs). 2. BK15 was very bad completing less than 60% of his passes throwing for under 200 yards and 2 INT's inexcusable,(BK15 should be throwing for around 70% completion percentage and a 3 TD to 1 INT Percatage. So Far through 2 Games on 2 TD to 1 INT against less than stellar competition. Do Better BK15. 3. Offensive Live Pass Protection was putrid. 4. Getting a FG Blocked is inexcusable 5. 9 Penalties for 90 yards is very bad and inexcusable. Better correct these situations pronto. Go Canes Beat the Moutaineers.


Lurker, I respectfully disagree. They have plenty of reasons to think they will win. I do not think so, but they certaunlt have reason to think so.


TSully... text me back lol


They have every right to believe they can win. They play hard, have talent and have done it before.

Actually doing it is another matter altogether.


Hurricanes - 3 1/2

The Vegas line hasn't changed since it opened at - 3 1/2. Very interesting indeed. huh

I think any underdog has a chance; this team has a lot of confidence and have been successful in Michigan, had a shot against UT.

We cannot walk in there like we have done so many times since 2003. Stomping on Lville logo, getting crushed by UVA at the OB, Clemson FSU, UNC disasters, etc.....just thinking showing up wins the game does not work. How many times I have seen us roll into cold, inclimate weather in Bburg....and get beat...too many.

I really sense a difference from Clapster, Onionhead and AlPa. They never had control, a feel for the pulse of the team, or any understanding of fundamental football.....all 3 were terrible at these things. CMR is different, along with the staff. I think it will be a challenge, and i think we can win in a good game. We can dominate if we do things right.

My Keys

Run the ball as we have been. The line has got to pick their feet up, low hard clean fast blocking. Hit and stick with block. Backs keep running north south. Establish run with Walton, Yearby then get TEs WRs the ball..keep mixing run in...get the backs the ball in the air as well. Line...protect BK, keep him clean. BK...loosen up relax play calm...vision...see yourself suceeding.

D has been great...these guys want to run it. Stop that run; TFL, be in backfield, tackles jam that center area up....ends protect flank but stay on them...up on that ball and moving. Young Gun LBs keep at it...tackle them hard! Stop run...then make them have to do what they do not want to do...PASS. DBs smother them, man coverage. Line pressure pressure sack hit hurt that QB! LBs be ready for the dump stuff...tackle those guys hard...Tatumize them!

ST need be smart and sharp....kick coverage flying but under control in lanes. Returns...set that table!

finally....no foolish penalties and no TOs..but get picks and fumbles.

We can win if we execute fundamental, enthusiastic solid football. I am leaving for my moms now.....Go Canes!!


Awesome picture of the chairs overlooking the water.


Hurricane assistant coach Craig Kuligowski named national DL coach of the week, according to CoachingSearch.com


Barry: Incoming UM player Dewan Huell arrested for battery, reports @AndySlater . Allegedly dragged man who was in closet with DW's ex-girlfriend


Hard Rock sign is going up and it looks like they put the rest of the sun panels in. They are going to be fixing the leaky roof.



More pics.



Well this isn't good. Basketball player Dewan Huell is arrested.


Sarasota 'cane

Once again sorry Soup. While not a participant in the actual dust up, I should not have been on the sidelines laughing and making jokes either.

Agree or disagree. Makes no difference.

Canes have been soft for over ten years. I guess it rubs off.

Super soft to give them any respect. F' em. They're basically a d-2 team and I'm not throwing any respect their way. They're delusional hillbillies.

Great post.

I think the poor 3rd down conversion % is a result of Richt being a little too pass happy on first down. I understand you need to mix it up, but I think passing on first down is much more potent after the run has been established with playaction.


Was listening to the story on Huell. According to Big O, the police report states he dragged a guy he found hiding in a closet with his girl.

If that's all it is, I dont think its a big deal. Quite frankly, for a 17/18 years old to only do that, is pretty impressive in itself.

The Dewan Huell thing is not good, he made a mistake, but it's not the end of the world either. He just has to learn to step back and think. No gf or ex-gf is worth getting arrested over. He'll learn.

I'm thinking a couple of games at the start of the year. Those are cupcakes anyway.


To where is the question:

Tim Reynolds ‏@ByTimReynolds 23m23 minutes ago

ACC moving 2016 football title game, 2017 women's basketball tourney, 2017 baseball tourney and other championships out of North Carolina.


Posted by: 30CINCO | September 14, 2016 at 01:40 PM

Miami, Jacksonville or Tampa



APP 10


The A-T-L, or Orlando, or Tampa would be good venues for the ACC championship football game.


Posted by: SinisterCane | September 14, 2016 at 01:54 PM

Me too.


They used to have the acc championship in tampa..NOBODY came to the games

Terrance Sullivan

Atlanta is out the SEC Championship Game is held the same day. Orlando or Miami or Washington DC works.


Basketball tourney - ATL

ACCCG - Tampa or Jax

Baseball tourney - Miami


Lurker... was that an attempt to call me soft? Im gonna assume it wasnt.

I think you are missing what I am saying. I DO NOT THINK they will beat us, not at all. But THEY have reasons to think it. Not me, but them.


Im going with...

Miami - 30
APP State - 17


Is it game prediction time already?

35-13, C-A-N-E-S


If you think about it, Orlando makes the most sense:

1. Plenty of hotel rooms
2. Built-in family appeal and attractions
3. Easy in/out - lots of direct flights. Economical
4. Overall has the best potential for drawing larger crowds than Tampa, Jax, Atlanta

The other possibility is Hard Rock.

I don't see them going north.

They have to come south. Unless anyone can think of any others, these of the candidates:
Any others?


Notice something new on the helmets of Hurricanes players? Here's how "Canes" are earned:







I've always like the helmet sticker idea. Nice badge of honor system.
