NEW BLOG IS UP!

SOUP

Hassan good to see you around the blog.

The Dude

WV has beaten some good football teams this year and have had a better defense than you might think. If Miami's O can score 38 and stay in front it should keep the defense fresh enough to hold WV under that mark. I dont think we can roll WV so Im hoping for a 38-34 victory, or better.

The Dude

JaQuan will need to be a monster in the nickle and the safeties will need to play great in space. Diaz might not have the horses for this mtch up. I know he'll do the best he can. Unfortunately we'll be relying on Brad to play huge, something he's failed to do consistantly when we really need him. Remember when I said earlier in the year Brad needs to be a monster in the next 5 games? We then went on a 4 game losing streak.

Hassan

DJ Johnson honestly has some Clowney type twitchy ability. He is not as heavy but he is 6'5. The only other guy he reminds me of for you old heads would be a young Simeon Rice.

The Dude

They are ranked #14 in the country. We win and we finish the season with a bowl win and a ranking.

The Dude

^^^ Me too. But thats okay, lets get to know then and beat the shit out of them.

Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando Dec. 28th, versus West Virginia, 5:30pm

Go Canes!

BJ: We should be notified about our bowl opportunity between 3:00-3:30 today. Looking forward to a great showing by the #CanesFamily.

Go Canes!

Love Clemson at -3 against Ohio State.

BigWindyCane1

Most are saying either Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando versus West Virginia or Tax Slayer Bowl in Jacksonville versus Kentucky. I love those matchups for us. A solid win against a good Big 12 or SEC team should put the Canes in the top 25, and give the Canes some momentum heading into national signing day and next season

The Dude

We'd still need the RB from Maryland and a WR.

BigWindyCane1

Corey Holmes transfer news is exciting because he might play right away. I didn't follow him much in college, but I recall he played on a talented St. THOMAS Aquinas team, and has the speed that CMR likes in his receivers. Holmes could help add some experienced depth with Coley leaving. The Canes do need some receivers

BigWindyCane1

If we just keep what we have and add these three guys our class will be a very successful one.

Posted by: Go Canes! | December 04, 2016 at 09:45 AM

That would be phenomenal! This could be one of the best classes at UM - like 2016, but more players. Dean was a great player on very good South DADE teams. Dean should know many of the players on on the roster, and will probably compete for playing time immediately

Seaton, Herbert, Donaldson and the others would give us one of the best offensive line recruiting classes in the country. The offensive line would be seriously upgraded.

A few more targets like these come, and the Canes will be in CFB discussions every year

Go Canes!

Some UM people were told tight end David Njoku has a good chance to go in the first three rounds if he turns pro. They will not be at all surprised if he turns pro, unless he can be convinced to spend a year helping nurture his brother, UM oral commitment Evidence Njoku.

VA - couldn't agree more with the Penn State fiasco. And we really don't know how far up the chain at Happy Valley the knowledge of what was going on went. Didn't something happen to one of the prosecutors at some point??? If you took everything Miami, Florida FSU and Ohio State EVER did, it does not even come close to that.

But, moving on.... VTech made it a game last night but lost it in the first quarter. I think their QB will be back next year so they won't be a walk in the park for us.

Heading to the beach, enjoy your Sunday!

Go Canes!

Ariz: *If you listened to this week’s podcast, you already know about this but I wanted to add to it. A couple different sources have said that Alabama is cooling on cornerback commit Jhavonte Dean, who Miami is recruiting. Dean is the junior college corner originally from South Dade high school. Manny Diaz dropped by his school this week and expressed Miami’s need for him – directly after which he said he will take an official visit to Miami. Dean told me this morning that he wants to set his trip for January – most likely the 13th weekend, which is shaping up to be a big one for the Canes. South Carolina is another team to watch for here is Dean’s recruitment.

**I’m sticking with the prediction of Kai-Leon Herbert and Tedarrell Slaton signing with Miami.

If we just keep what we have and add these three guys our class will be a very successful one.

Every time VAC mentions Rohan Marley I have to listen to Lauryn Hill.

Go Canes!

Bring on the Turds.

Terrance Sullivan

Just win Baby

The Dude

^^^ That was my SOUP shout out.

SOUP

I also want FL becaise I think we'd beat them 41-20.

Posted by: The Dude | December 03, 2016 at 08:11 PM

That would be my prediction.

VA Cane

VT also has a lot to be proud of; they played Clemson very tough. Rough start, but they really made it close. Those kids under a new staff did pretty good vs #3....remember the last time we played Clemson.....while it was embarrassing...it got CGNCPa's buddies AlPa, NoDPa, and LoserStaffPa (I am dying laughing CGNC)....out the door...Thank GOD!!

Clemson is well rounded; solid D, can run and throw it...QB is a problem; Watson is cool and can do a lot of things well. He can run, and throw. Watson is a problem QB for Bama...they have a tough time versus a skilled QB like Watson.

Clemson/Bama D's are close....Bama has a slight edge but also has injuries...Clemson O and QB is a problem for Bama D...they do not like to chase and guess...and he has playmakers.....this is a tight one.

OSU is a puzzle. I like their QB...and they can run and move it....sometimes...but they have survived some close games against some teams that were good...Wisconsin...yet they have had nightmares at Northwestern and Michigan State.

Washington is not a bad team...but hell their schedule out of conference is ugly.

I could see it like this; Bama, OSU,Clemson....and PSU....instead of Washington...we will see....

Would you love OSU to get left out? I would. I do not like Greasy Mole Face Urban, but they are a good team...and he is a good coach...he wins.
However they have gotten a call or eight in their day....the Michigan game, Wisconsin game...

..and long ago and far away in some bowl game out in a desert somewhere against some renegade outsider program that got into the national picture much later than the traditional powers....some team that had power strength speed...vision.. incredible athletes...yeas I think they got a call in that big game...Ahh, but hell, everyone gets a call dont they?....Other than Duke, I do not think we have ever gotten a break or call....yea we are marked by many....

VA Cane

Watching all games...while PSU administration is vile, their coach and kids do not quit! Beautiful comeback, great 4th down stand.....they are the new PSU....without fault....still do not pull for them...but those kids really played well....franklin is the answer for the evil unknown underside rep of JoPa...i blame him for the problems...HE KNEW!!!

Franklin is a fine man...good leader of good kids!!!

TruCane81

Yeah man. That's the thing about guys like Sandusky. They give others who live for helping kids a suspicious eye.

Our young people have enough problems without adults trying to take advantage of them in such a heinous way when they are most vulnerable.

But the work has to be done. We just gotta carry ourselves with love and integrity. High charecter stands against all doubt.

VA Cane

Heck they tried to erase us for trivia compared to that stuff....yes Shaps was a loser, and RS tried to tell people...I will give RS that...he was a straight up guy...and wanted no part of Shaps...but what happened up there...there is no excuse or explanation. They WOULD have wiped us out....cause they been trying for years.

I am very kid oriented...its my job 37 years coaching young folks...If I have a kid waiting for a ride...I am there til they are picked up or if need be,I take them home. I have had neighbors come to pick them up and until I speak to the parents to verify...it ain't happening!!!!! I have had them stay at my home for games when parents had to be out of town....or just needed help. My wife was a long time AD board member as our daughter cheered...same thing. Those girls stayed with us, we took them home waited with them...whatever. I coached girls softball...and was tough...I had them running laps....we even did bear crawls...but we won....and NOBODY would dare try to hurt my girls! I would have it no other way....

My young people male and female always are safe and accounted for....because this world is full of evil....but that evil will not be allowed on my watch....EVER. Its the only waY!

jmo

VA Cane

TC81,
I agree. We need some bad boys on that Oline...lean mean that run to blocks, pick the feet up...and want to damage people. I like Walton as he is tough...but we really need that feature back....Yearby was not bad...but we need THAT back....not Gus the moped!!! We do not play fast hard and aggressive on O. We need to keep getting good WRs...Use DN as a weapon, get the play calling more aggressive....and keep improving at QB!!

Our D is there...little more depth, little more strength in DB and tackle. Those freshmen impressed the hell out of me....Manny is the man. I love his coaching and attack...and you know kids want to play that monster in your face kick yo ass D!!!!

If we keep at the recruiting...go after the kids...keep improving our facilities, feed them good, get the fat out the door...mean and lean...and get aggressive every day every play....we will get there!!!!!

Love your posts my friend!!!

TruCane81

JMO but it is just so wrong!!

Posted by: VA Cane | December 03, 2016 at 10:20 PM

We feel you, VA. No need to apologize or soften your words. What you said is more than appropriate and really you actually let them off easy. I know you held your tonguue even for that utterance of undeniable truth.

Man, could you imagine if the shower games went on at the U. They would erase us. Literally erase our entire legacy from the annals of cfb.

VA Cane

No matter what I think of the regime, the PSU kids are playing quite a game....Franklin is a stand up guy....dont know I could coach there if it was my alma mater...but he is a damn good man and coach.

Interestingly, i hqave a connection... I QB'd my HS to 2 state titles 38 in a row...my center, a dear friend, is one of the star department heads at PSU Smeal College of Business....he is a genius....also handles software and technology patents from the school.....I love my boy...he protected me very well....but I do give him some shit about the scandal....and he agrees they were very wrong!!!!

I just hate seeing kids treated like this...and people walk away, are rewarded.....and the backers and people involved act like nothing was wrong. JMO folks...

TruCane81

Couple things strike me as I'm watching some of the CGs...
1) HTF did penn state get to a CG before us? Well I guess I know the answer.

2) We have a long way to go before we belong on the field w the elites.

Posted by: 1mg of Epi | December 03, 2016 at 09:43 PM


We are closer than that, Epi.

All we need is solid game planning and some gangsters on the online. We can compete with just about everyone but Alabama with just those two things.

We do need more depth to because some unfortunate injuries could derail us.

We bitch slapped some of the top offenses in the conferencee with aggression, good game planning, and actual halftime adjustments. All from a unit that had the deck stacked against them.

Good coaching will do the same for the o.

VA Cane

I feel and respect the PSU kids...they have always had pretty good kids...good students good players....even AlPa was not a bad player.....

BUT Sandusky should be sitting in Old Sparky...and his lawyers should be for defending the perv....JoPa...what a fake...he knew what the deal was....and ignored those childrens fate.....burn baby burn...he knew and hid from the truth....how do you give him back 111 wins....FRAUD!!!!!

The Pres and AD...when will they face justice....money will buy them out of trouble....they will never be held accountable!!

So while I think Franklin and the kids are not bad at all...I can never respect the school or hope they win....what burns me more is the announcers and talking heads talking about how incredible and heart warming a story the comeback is!!!! The school and athletic department allowed children to be raped and brutalized....those kids will never be normal...and no $ can fix it....BUT...let them off the hook, back in the fold, restore the wins......its the work of the devil....i hope they lose every game they ever play....there is no warmth in this perverted story....it sickens me!

My guys are the age of some of those victims.....It angers me beyond belief...sorry if I sound angry....but its so bad how they skated!!!

Yet th NCAA hounds us to death regarding things that seem like.....nothing compared to PSU!!!! So SAD!!!

JMO but it is just so wrong!!

VA Cane

Hello birthday friend Epi....


1. Well NCAA slapped PSU....then as always copped out and let them off the hook......money and gifts are wrong in our case...but we got treated worse....but child molestation? Really? Hell SMU got the death penalty for things....but nothing is worse than what PSU allowed...the criminal Sandusky...should have got the chair....JoPa let it happen and did nothing....and the administration did not care!!!! whats up with the cases against the administrators involved....been quiet...they probably get off too...I mean its PSU the good guys!!!

2. Yes epi we are far different than the elites....Bama OSU Clemson....FSU hell USC gets after it OK....we are not there and have a ways to go....BUT...if we focus on what works...football is copycat....get lean big fast mean hater OL....backs that run north south....and develop our QB talent...we can get there. Our d is on the way....get some more big DTs...improved corners and safties we got some LBs....we can get on that field....if we recruit right and aggressive....we can get back....I want it bad!!!!!!

They say things like....Slurp, primary rival dude, sidtard, giant douche and golden girl loser to name a few. I'm a right, I said am right. You fake ass mms wanna be. Laying on the ground having another mans penis rubbed all over you until your ears look like cauliflower. Lurker and Go Canes live in your head as will I you weak excuse of a man. If only that umbilical cord wrapped around your neck we wouldn't have to listen to hatting ass all the time

Florida is terrible but at least they got to play for the ship, something we have yet to do. I hope we get the gators as well in a bowl and beat their worthless azz and show those recruits like Henderson who the Mack daddy is!

Goes to show you how bad the SEC is!

TruCane81

Man, there would be no sweeter end to this roller coaster season than to put a beatdown on the punks from trailerville.

All I want for x mas is to give them arrogant fuks a little more of what they got today. Nothing better than watching the horrified look on a turds fans face after we smoke em.

Where is everyone lately?

Work.

VA Cane

Mary Lou, thank you very much, I appreciate your kindness. I know you are a true Cane fan, and I enjoy your kind posts. Glad hoops won....and though we were 8-4, the football took a step up.....a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step! We will get better I feel it!!

You are one of the many special people we have on this blog; you are all special family to me. Oh we may argue at times, but I do think we are all treating each other nicer and we are avoiding subjects that can be volatile. I love the Space, the Canes and reading all the different views.

Lets win that bowl game....we will play whoever they choose for us. Go Canes!!!

The Dude

A-fukin-men Herbie. If we get them we will beat them. Lets put some swag back in our step.

Ive seen Iowa. I think we can throw on them, run... no. The run game at Miami is poopoo. Our D would hold them to 20.

VA Cane

Special alert for CGNCPa thinking of you!!

The college football world avoided a week of bowl drama when Temple rocked No. 19 Navy, 34-10, to win the American Athletic Conference title.This is 10-3 Temple’s first conference title since 1967 in the Middle Atlantic and continues an astounding turnaround that started under Al (AlPa) Golden and continues under Matt Rhule.

How about that folks....Temple rules!!!!!

CGNCPa.....I knew this would make you happy!!!!!

LOL!!

The Dude

I think to get FL we have to be in Jacksonville, which is fine also. We'd beat FL in Gainsville next Saturday if they want. K, truth be told I really want to beat the hell out of FL. A super success of a season to whip on those pusses. If we got Tennessee that'd be okay too. The fall kind of began with a loss to Tennessee, the rise can start with a win over them. But unlike FL, they'd be real competition.

BEERicane

We wouldn't be able to run or pass against Iowa. Just ask Michigan and Nebraska. They have a similar season story to ours. Hit a major rough patch but are now completely different teams than during those stretches.

The Dude

Also, I want the RAB. Time to get that monkey off our back. I also want FL becaise I think we'd beat them 41-20.

The Dude

^^^ LBs and safeties I meant.

The Dude

And the spread really isnt about the 2ndary so much as it is about making LBs make plays in space, even still, that could be trouble.

The Dude

I think I'd rather have an Iowa who will run traditionally at our good front 7 than a WVU who will spread it out on a thin 2ndary. Just my 2 cents.

Bottom line, no matter who we get we need to win, even if it means beating someone better for once.

MLAlumni 1970

Congratulations to the 10th power
VACANE?
You are an amazing man, dedicating your life to helping young men, be the best football players, in the MIAMI HURRICANE TRADITION?
I, especially, love to read your postings,on the Canes FOOTBALL SAGA. I wish I had the depth of knowledge of Miami that you, and others have.
Great that we won tonight in basketball.

VA Cane

It would be nice to play and beat FL....guess we will find out soon. I would like to have a nice bowl win for the holidays. I think it would give us a nice boost going into next year.

I think we have learned some things, and we have grown. I look forward to a better team next year!!!
Lets get that bowl win!!!

BEERicane

I just hope we don't draw Iowa. They would probably put it on us.

Sarasota 'cane

I think UM is getting WVU in the Russell Athletic Bowl but I would love to play Florida in the Taxslayer Bowl!!

CGNC

VA - Congrats! Florida is not very good. I hope we get an SEC team in a bowl and beat them!

VA Cane

Wierd SEC title game Huh?

Bama killing them with D and ST, then that crazy XP!

It never bothers me to see those UF fans whine, moan, complain,....I love to see their dejected looks. They are babies!!!
I hate FSU as well, but I respect them....they may be our rival, but they come to play!!! FL is a whole different story....I do not respect them at all.

VA Cane

Thanks Windy and Fran; I did tell my kids at game time that me and all of my Cane family had a better year and a brighter future (they are well informed on UM lore and history), and since we play as family, include all my Canespace Family as part of the team.....so thanks to all of you, whom I care about, learn from and am inspired by......We did win a title of sorts this year.

FL started out hot, and Bama is banged up....but things look to be changing.

We do have a good QB, whom I expect to return next year. I think BK will improve even more, mature, and develop into a better QB....and make a difference for us as a QB and leader. You could not ask for a finer young man to have on your team; he has many redeeming qualities as a person and I admire that.

congrats VA Cane. With fond memories I remember my oldest son playing for Passadena Lakes 125# team in Broward County for a good coach and a better man. BTW the team was undefeated and gave up only 40 points all year I hope all your kids parents appreciate the effort you make for their kids.

Rohan Marley!!!1

Good afternoon Canespace; its a great day!!!

Today my young men showed character, determination, and a will to win by executing the fundamentals of football. On a windy afternoon, The Panthers defeated a good opponent 28-0 by effectively running and passing the ball, executing flawless special teams play, and most of all by bringing their trademark to the field; a crushing, gambling, smothering D!!!!

I am proud of my young men; they continue the commitment to excellence by winning their 8th SB in 10 years. No it is not the NFL, but it is a far cry from sandlot. These 13-14 year olds are special young men who have given me the privilege of coaching them, and I hope I have made a difference in their lives.

We are proud to continue the winning ways we have worked for!!
