Per ESPN Bowl Projections:

Capital One Orange Bowl
December 30, 2017, 8pm (ESPN)
Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens, FL:

Bonagura: Miami v. Georgia

Hale: Miami v. Ohio State

Go Canes!

I believe we've had years where we've played Louisville or Clemson and FSU.

It all evens out.

Go Canes!

CMR is probably waiting for that phone to ring as we speak.


From Twitter: "I don't think Jacob Eason will throw another significant pass for UGA at QB.

UMike

Last year we were the higher ranked team, undefeated and looking good. FSU already had 2 losses and we just knew we were gonna win!! I'm hesitant to get that excited again. But I do believe this is easily our best chance in a while to end this streak.

What do you spacers think about the idea that UCF and USF will be better than FSU and UF longterm because Tallahassee and Gainesville suck as cities?

Go Canes!

David Hale: % def snaps w/no gain (sacks+incomp+TFL/NG):

2. Mich, 46.8
3. Wake, 45.9

8., Miami, 40.9
11. VT, 40.4
15. Clem, 39.3

Hillview. I don't buy that theory at all. UF/FSU are blue bloods, who will have occasional down seasons. UCF and usf are second rate programs who will occasionally find success.

Go, I would not expect him to come here. He'd be facing competition from Perry, the IMG QB, and whoever CMR brings in for the 2019 class. Plus Sheriffs and Weldon will still be around.

Go Canes!

How long is long term?

Most college towns suck if you are not a student.

If you are 18 years old with a perpetual hard on they are the best place to be on earth.

Those programs wont catch up for alot of reasons.

Florida born and bred. What a loss...

NativeCane

Saw Tom Petty for the first time at Curtis Hixon Hall in Tampa. He was warm up band for Patty Smith Group and the Heartbreakers put on one of the best shows I've ever seen that night. Oh yeah the ticket was $3.98!

NativeCane

The date 2as July 7th 1978.

Go Canes!

Tom Petty is an all time great.

Only 66 freaking years old.

Sarasota said it best, what a loss.

On this issue I side with the progressives. As in young progressive students who prefer the new urban life and its progressive ideals over the good ol boy networks in Trailerhassee and Trashville.

Change is happening all across college football and the playing field is being leveled especially IF you take a long term view (10+ years). UCF and USF are in MUCH better cities than UF and FSU. For this reason alone I think UCF and USF, IF they can win, will definitely pull SOME talent out of Gainesville and Tallahasee and YES even Miami.

If you have ever been to UCF and their 50,000 students their Coed talent level is right up there with Miami. Yeah, I said it.

The waiting is the hardest part.

Well now "they" are saying he may still be clinging to life. Let's hope that's the case. Prayer's to Tom and his family.

Yes yes the scouting reports have been superb.

Its almost draft season.

I would agree but for the demise of the Big East and the creation of the Super Conferences. They all but relegated these schools on the "outside looking in" to also-ran status with regards to competing for ships, and as such they will miss on a lot of the 4-5 star talent who want to compete at the highest level.

UM, FSU, and UF will always be part of the "Big 3" until further notice!!

Go 'canes!!

Sarasota 'cane

I would further add that I kinda feel sorry for UCF and USF...but I really don't. I don't want a diluted talent pool on signing day like they have in Texas and California. "F" 'em. UM, FSU, and UF built this shyt, they can have the scraps! BUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Go 'canes!!

Go Canes!

Ariz: The Canes will practice in the Dolphins bubble tomorrow morning. Weather didn’t look good for practice tomorrow

Not happening USF and UCF ain't moving into the big time any time soon and will remain the 4th and 5th wheel. The reality is the Miami, Florida State, and Florida gets Grown People Money 30 million dollars or more before first ticket sold and have Athletic Budgets of 70 million-110 million annually. While USF and UCF gets roughly 5 million before they sale their first tickets and have Athletic Budgets of roughly 25 million to 30 million annually. It's a similar set up when people make comparisons to say Troy and UAB compared to Auburn and Alabama, or Memphis compared to Vanderbilt and Tennessee, or Georgia Southern, Georgia State compared to Georgia Tech and Georgia, or Appalachian State, East Carolina, Charlotte compared to North Carolina State, North Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest. Unless USF and UCF makes into a Power 5 conference they will be in their lane. They need to worry about keeping FAU and FIU out of their lanes lol.

If Tom petty ain't dead yet, he will be. Soon.

Terrance Sullivan

UCF has a puncher's chance, USF doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell.UCF is in the category with UConn, Cincinatti, Memphis, Houston,BYU, Boise State, Air Force, NAvy, Colorado State, San Diego State, SMU, East Carolina, on maybe if the Power 5 all go to 16 teams if they dont then they will be where they are at.

"what the latest with Walton??

He said he tweaked his ankle again and they expect him to live in the training room this week, so he'll be all numbed up again on it for the game against the primary rival.

The champagne is in the fridge getting cold starting right this moment, it's up to Smart Mark and company to get the cork out of the top now . . .

Terrance...there is one BIG difference: UCF and USF's access to top talent in Florida. The big three can only take their respective 85 each and while the 5 stars will continue to shop themselves around to the top 5 HOT schools/coaches of the day I think UCF and to a lesser extent USF will eventually get to the point where they have enough local grown talent of 3 stars dotted with the occasional 4 star that could make them very competitive and maybe even take them over the top.

Troy, Memphis and App State can't say that and I think they are still one step below where UCF and USF are now and where they are headed. UCF and USF are now blessed with good coaching and that is a difference maker that they did not have before.

I've recently toured both UCF and USF campuses, and both have definitely built a program with more coed talent than any program in the country. Lol. FAU and FIU aren't far behind. They just haven't caught up with the academics and athletes yet

The State of Florida produces more talent now than it did when Schnelly and Butch were coaches. The amount of talent being produced today is astounding. I once heard Willie Tagert comment on that on a recruiting trip at Traz Powell when recruiting his QB from Miami Jackson. It's enough 3-4 star talent (if you can qualify them to play) to feed multiple high-level programs.

I am going to get some "poo poo's for this but I think FSU wins by a FG this weekend.
Miami has beaten BC and Toledo which are OK and Duke who hasn't beaten anyone that was good.....at least my betting side thinks so.

FSU has lost to Bama and NC State - both which are pretty good. I would not be surprised one bit of FSU made in 8 straight..... let the "boo hissing" begin.

Go Canes!

Posted by: raizecane | October 03, 2017 at 07:17 AM

Love me some Smiths.

How soon is now may be the greatest B side of all time.

We'll be in NYC December 2nd when Morrissey will be playing there but my wife would rather have a root canal than see him so I'm screwed.

Go Canes!

Sir you have a bad case of battered Cane syndrome.

Begin drinking beer immediately after breakfast on Saturday, enjoy the whooping we're going to put on them and you'll be cured.
