Canes D gave up on average 9pts in the second half this year. Pretty damn good.

BEERicane

So Francois throws a game-winning TD on the Noles final drive. Has Kaaya ever done that? Vs anyone?

BEERicane

What a game!!!!!

SinisterCane

FSU's oline holds like crazy

Go Canes!

That was some great coaching on dalvins game changing run.

CR - isn't it only the undercards on Fs1 and not the main event?!

Apparently so TD, my bad fellas.

TonyCane

Washington stacks the box on Dee and tries to make bama's qb beat them throwing. His average at best throwing but Bama wins a tight one 24-13. Clemson clubs Osu 31-17. Watson is the only qb that has a chance to beat Bama. They have jets at wr that will cause Bama problems. Clemson wins it all 27-20.
Fsu gets cake for a bowl, Michigan sux offensively.

I guess Jimbo didnt recruit him...

Rousey vs Nunes on FS1 tonight.

Go Canes!

That drive was all Dalvin, not Jimbo.

The difference is they get positive yardage running instead of smashing into a brick wall he way our backs do.

Hold on a second now... pre 5 game win streak yes...during win streak NO!

Now run blocking is a different story 😂

Say what U want about Jimbo but that man can coach. Now that is the way U start the game! Are U paying attention Mark Richt???

#ProbablyNot

Go Canes!

Started early in what is now becoming getting the serious drink on tonight.

Home waiting for the wife to finish getting ready before Ubering to an impromptu night before party.

At this point I can tell the first one I have tomorrow will determine my New Years Eve destiny.

If it goes down smooth, it's back on.

If not, going to be a long night of being sober guy watching amateur hour till after midnight.

BigWindyCane1

Inconsistency hurt Kaaya's draft stock and it doomed the Canes hopes for the Coastal this season . Amazing that UNC beats the Canes at home during that brutal 4 game October stretch, but the Canes turn it around, close 5-0, beat good teams by two or more TDs, and will likely finish ranked in the top 25. UNC will finish with 5 losses, and might lose the best QB prospect in college football to the draft.

I would love to have these Canes that finished the season play any team outside of the top 5. When the Canes are off their game, they are mediocre. But when the Canes are on their game, they are a potential top 10 team.

SOUP

KYCane...it sure looks like it! Their LT is pure BASURA!

I feel like Robert E Lee picking the UW, Bama game. My head knows Bama should win, but my sacred honor as an Idahoan prevents me from doing as such. Go Huskies!

F(_)CK Harley! Don't want to be a cane, don't want him! I'll take pouncey over him any day as he's almost as fast and ain't no midget like Harley. Pouncey is like 6'3 and can run like a dear.

AND, in the shock of the century, U've seen Allison play ZERO snaps, yet U want UGA's QB because he scored on TCU?

Y'all know I hate to play 😈 advocate 😂 but...

You've seen Allison and Perry play ZERO snaps, seen Rosier beat a ranked Duke team (something Kaaya NEVER did), yet you know that Kaaya is way better than those 3???

But distance & academic issues aren't in our favor with His recruitment, I think He goes to Louisville.

And who's Pouncey?

Dude on a Pale Horse

If we can get Harley, Thomas, McFarland and 1 OL. That'd be a haul.

Dude on a Pale Horse

^^^ Kid can play.

CaneRock

Should the Hurricanes pick up a commitment from Pouncey the wide receiver recruiting wouldn't stop there. InsideTheU reported on Tuesday that East Saint Louis (Ill.)

Posted by: SinisterCane | December 30, 2016 at 03:36 PM

I stopped reading at East Saint Louis. If you're getting a kid from ESL, you're gettin' a tough@$$ kid, I think they have the highest murder rate per capita...that's where Bryan Cox is from.

mi@mic@ne

did you see the pac 12 official knock the ball out of the NC qb...total cheat

SinisterCane

From 247

Should the Hurricanes pick up a commitment from Pouncey the wide receiver recruiting wouldn't stop there. InsideTheU reported on Tuesday that East Saint Louis (Ill.) High Top100 wideout Jeff Thomas has been in contact with representatives at Miami and we continue to hear some buzz that UM is more of a player in the recruitment that people think. Thomas has some academic hurdles that he will need to clear to become a full qualifier, but the door hasn't been completely shut on him gaining admission into a school like Miami. That's why the Hurricanes are involved.

Thomas is a dynamic talent that not only can stretch the field, but also make plays in traffic and run a jet sweep here and there. Illinois is the leader on the 247Sports Crystal Ball, but some think that the biggest threat to Miami right now is Louisville. The Under Armour All-American isn't expected to make a decision until sometime around Feb. 1's National Signing Day.

BigWindyCane1

If Njoku goes in the first round, I believe that will be three straight years for the Canes getting drafted in the first round. I think the streak will continue for years to come

Old Skool

Nice pics. Gotta say, though, it was obvious Terrance and Native weren't there. There's no line-up of young nubiles anxious to twerk for food or pics with Spacers surrounded by cheerleaders or any other type of women in skimpy unis.

UGA wins.

I've got Washington beating 'Bama also.

And I have OSU over Clemson.

Just sayin...

Posted by: Old Skool | December 30, 2016 at 05:41 AM

The one from Tennessee I had at the game was in a mason jar, no label. The other two were from WV with labels

SinisterCane

My guess:

Njoku 1st rd
Coley 3nd rd
Corn 2nd rd
Kaaya 2nd rd

CaneRock

LOL...can't get nothin' past Ohio_Cane...I was just bussin' chops.

Cane Since 1982

I Njoku on the Phins. But I think we go DB with our first pick.

SinisterCane

^^^^^^^^^
Jacksonville Jaguars: Brad Kaaya, QB, Miami
Brad Kaaya's stock has slipped, but he's definitely a bargain in the third round. The Jaguars could consider taking him, as they can't really bench Blake Bortles because they don't have an alternative. Drafting a quarterback who actually cares about football would be nice.

SinisterCane

^^^^^^^
Houston Texans: David Njoku, TE, Miami
Charlie Campbell has this selection posted in his mock draft, and I liked it a lot, so I chose to copy it. The Texans could use an intermediate threat, and perhaps they'll fall in love with David Njoku if he declares for the 2017 NFL Draft. Njoku's talent level is unreal, and there's a ton of hype surrounding him right now

For your eyes only.

Tennessee opens - 3 1/2 against the CornSUCKERS.

On Wednesday of this week the line was... Tennessee - 6 1/2.

Today the line has moved further... Tennessee - 9 1/2. LOL

So who would U wager money on?

Oh. And one more thing. The Vol's are going to MOLEST that CornSucker team this afternoon!!

By the way, ESPN has a very interesting article about the line movement of the Roll Tide vs. Washington game. It seems MAJOR MONEY has dropped the line down by several points from the - 17 1/2.

30/12/17 Alabama - 14 1/2

Personally speaking I had Washington and the PLUS - 17 1/2!!

Cane Since 1982

Anyone else laughing at UGA right now, looking terrible against a 6-6 TCU, BIG XII team. UGA is going to finish the year 7-6 with a bowl loss after firing Richt for only winning 9 games. While Richt gets Miami to 9 wins including its first bowl win in to years while starting 3 true freshman LBs in his first year at Miami.

I wish I was still in GA to listen to the sports talk radio shows to hear the fans now that were calling for his firing.

TonyCane

And Petersen > Saban all day.

He's done more with less all His career, while Saban wins in proportion to the talent level He has...check His MSU record.

Posted by: CaneRock | December 30, 2016 at 12:03 PM

Agreed. In some respects is the Phil Jackson argument. Should Phil be considered the greatest coach ever because he won 11 championships, or because he had Jordan/Pippen in their primes, Shaq with Kobe in their primes prime, and Kobe with Gasol in their primes.

I give Bill Belichick far more credit for building the New England Patriots into an absolute machine despite drafting at the end of each round each year than I do with Nick Saban who has the NFL equivalent of 15 first round draft choices each year. Kuddos to Saban for getting all of those five star players, but is it an on the field coaching triumph when the talent level of the Crimson Tide is so far above everyone else (with the partial exception of Ohio State)?

TonyCane

3rd: Has anyone else noticed that in the media they now say bowl games are worthless and they down play bowls. This just coincidently coincides with the SEC absolutely sucking. Every article on ESPN that talks about a game in which the ACC has won is all about how the other team lost it. The article following the Miami game only talks about how the BIG XII defenses must be really horrible and their offenses not as strong as everyone thought. They give slight mention to Miami's D and Kaaya's last 2 and 1/3rd quarters, but no real credit to how Miami was a damn good team. The only person that has said that was WVU's head coach before the game who pointed out how close we were to being a 11-1 team prior to the bowl game.

In all I'm wondering what peoples thoughts are on the sports media's bias.

Posted by: Cane Since 1982 | December 30, 2016 at 11:23 AM

Bias is not out of the question. ESPN has a lot tied up with the SEC. It does not benefit them to have the hollowing out of the conference exposed to full light. But if Alabama is going to win the next eight national championships, the most predominant effect will be on other SEC programs.

Honestly, I really don't get how thirty odd bowl games are suddenly devalued significantly more by a Final 4 playoff system than they were from 1992 - 2013 by a Final 2 playoff system.

WWIN

Yes it has. Kaaya starts every game.

Posted by: Go Canes! | December 30, 2016 at 12:22 PM

No sir! Gus starts over Yearby and Homer... you think he's better than them?

Man, Bama ain't napping. They're gonna win by freakin 25. Bama vs Clemson. Bama wins it all again, unfortunately.

Hope I'm wrong. I'm tired of them.

Ohio_Cane

Ariz on Brandon Taylor I posted about earlier:

Taylor was a 2-star football recruit coming out of Clear Brook high school in Friendswood, Texas last year, mainly due to his size of roughly 5-7, 150-pounds. When he committed to UM for track, he expressed his interest in playing football at Miami. Due to NCAA policy, Taylor was obligated to honor the first part of the track season before he can move to the football field -- which is why Taylor was not with the team this past season. He will also remain on the Miami track team.

Although his size might have scared major football programs away, Taylor showed tremendous ability as a return man in his highlights, which is certainly a role where the Canes could use an upgrade. He also played wide receiver and running back in high school.

Go Canes!

Posted by: WWIN | December 30, 2016 at 11:57 AM

Yes it has. Kaaya starts every game.

Go Canes!

If Bama brings its A game AND plays a relatively error free game it won't be close.

But if UW can force some mistakes it will be a heck of a game.

WWIN

Tony...

I've come to the conclusion that South Florida is the Best place to recruit but at the same time the HARDEST place to recruit!

Exhibition games for the younger players? REALLY? I've NEVER seen a bowl game where a coach didn't play his best players and didn't try to WIN... EVER!

People predicting a Bama land slide that call out the media for bias are inherently hypocritical. How about all the CFB fans with Bama bias?

Posted by: BEERicane | December 30, 2016 at 11:35 AM

Kinda funny how 82 just kinda blindly stumbled into that.

UMike

And I dont want to knock UW, but Bama is a proven machine and Saban has had a couple weeks to plan. Of course I could be wrong, but I think Bama wins easily.

UMike

And Washington has proved it against the mighty Pac12?

BEERicane

They are proving it against a historically (maybe a tad exaggerated, but they are awful) SEC. I don't buy into the hype this year. Not with a turnover prone offense.

Dude on a Pale Horse

No one saying Bama landslide has watched UW play.

BEERicane

Also, dont forget turnover margin, UW is +21 while Bama is only +5. Hurts will cough it up,

UMike

Bama bias? They prove it week in and week out, year in and year out. Of course there is a media bias for the SEC, but Bama is proven.

BEERicane

People predicting a Bama land slide that call out the media for bias are inherently hypocritical. How about all the CFB fans with Bama bias?

UW has one of the best secondaries in the nation. Allow the same yards per pass that Bama does. Have 3 beasts on the DL. Not to mention their QB play is light years ahead as is their WR JR3.

Not to mention their coach has an uncanny ability to shock the world with less talent (not sure the gap is that large this yr as he typically dealt with).

Cane Since 1982

Thought on Playoffs. Those picking Wash over Bama are nuts. Bama in a land slide. This game will be like the Canes vs. App State. Bamas Players are just bigger, faster, and more athletic.

I think OSU will beat Clemson. OSU shows up for the big games. Urban finds a way. Pains me to say that but it is proven.

With that last statement I think OSU beats Bama and I have to deal with another year of listening to my OSU friends and just biting my tongue for another year or 2 until Miami is in National Title contention again.

Cane Since 1982

1st: Hi Everyone.

Herbieibis

Well for bama the rich keep getting richer, as they have 6 five star players verballed for next year. The problem with the sec is that it lacks elite qb play. Think about it, your so called good teams like auburn, Lsu, Flo all have qb issues and aside from the Eason kid at Georgia don't have elite qb prospects plus they sum trying to throw the football. U have to take the good with the bad when u run the spread. Most of those qb's are not good passers, although running qb's are what gives bama the most problem.

BEERicane

Also, I think people forget how special a coach Chris Peterson is...

Ohio_Cane

This kid joins the football team in the Spring! Holy speeeeeeeed!

Brandon Taylor (Track Commit)

10.3 burner with good moves. Looks like a potentially dynamic return man.

BEERicane

This playoff is going to shock people.

Washington over Bama. OSU over Clemson. Washington wins.

I honestly don't believe Bama is nearly as strong as the media thinks they are. Best win is vs a lost USC team before they gained their footing. The rest of their schedule has been incredibly weak. If UW gets a lead, I'm not sure Bama can play from behind. They may beat UW, but I don't think they can beat a solid squad coming out of the other game, especially if it's Urban.

Go Canes!

I think there was a period when LSU, UF, UGA and Bama were really among the elite programs out there year in and out.

But all the SEC has done lately is throw money at their problems without really getting anything worthwhile in return.

Outside of Bama the rest of that conference is now average to bad, though LSU hiring the OC from Pitt to go with their current DC can elevate them in a hurry.

Dont think there is an SEC team out there besides the Tide we wouldn't give all they can handle.

Ohio_Cane

I'm wondering how long it will take for perception to match reality as the public realizes that the SEC has become a one team conference? And will ratings follow?

Posted by: TonyCane | December 30, 2016 at 10:15 AM
--------------------------------------------

When the media stops promoting them. It started this year, though, as they promoted the Big 10 as the best conference with the ACC up there a bit too.

Go Canes!

Beer, Beer, Beer....

Anyway, predictions for the final four?

I've got a Clemson-Bama rematch with Clemson pulling it off and winning the whole thing.

TonyCane

SEC will continue to get weaker and weaker overall as Alabama draws in all of the elite talent. Why go to UF, Tenn, LSU ect when you know that there is no chance that your team can beat the Crimson Tide.

I'm wondering how long it will take for perception to match reality as the public realizes that the SEC has become a one team conference? And will ratings follow?

BEERicane

How was there a 58% satisfaction rating after that FSU embarrassment? Was Go Canes casting the majority of votes?
