Bacon is on, coffee is on, the morning air is crisp.


It looks like we aren’t the only ones impressed by Lingard’s potential. Mark Walton also feels strongly about Lingard: “He [Lingard] is going to be one hell of a player,” Walton said. “Once he learns the offense, he is going to be a very special talent.”

There's politically correct. Well prepare for physically correct.

Might as well change team names to flowers. We could soon have the New York Pansies versus the Cincinnati Daffodils.

The following is from CNN

The targeting rule will be even tougher to handle. The NFL doesn't want it called that, preferring helmet-hitting rule because of the negative connotations of targeting. But targeting, it is.

Where to place the helmet during a tackle is a decision made in milliseconds. And sometimes there is no decision-making process at all. It's just instinct.

A targeting foul is now defined by the NFL to have occurred when "a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent." The rule passed 32-0.

Fans need to understand something. The rule will dramatically change how the sport looks and is played. The game will be far less physical.

Hope the removal of lymph nodes was prophylactic. If the cancer was there, not good news.

Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly underwent a 12-hour operation Wednesday to remove oral cancer and have his upper jaw reconstructed.

According to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak, Dr. Mark Urken said the surgery was a success: "We successfully removed Mr. Kelly's cancer from his upper jaw and lymph nodes from his neck. We then reconstructed his upper jaw. Mr. Kelly is resting comfortably post-operatively."

Also just wondering... Have you ever read that someone was "resting uncomfortably"? Is it even possible to rest if you're uncomfortable?


To hear Mark Walton say that Lingard has great vision is very encouraging. Vision is one of the attributes of a great running back. You can’t see that in camps, only when they suit up. If true, Lingard definitely will be exciting to watch for the next three seasons

FYI There will be a group ticket purchase for Georgia Tech Game in Atlanta on November 10th. The Group Tickets will be roughly 40-45 dollars. We will let U all know the exact price and where we will be sitting but it will be on the Canes Sides. Also The Canespace Hotel for the GT Game will be the La Quinta Inn Atlanta Alpharetta. I have 5 rooms booked so far and can book more. I already booked 3 Suites and 2 Regular Rooms. If I need to reserve more let me know So Far I have Suites Booked for 86, KYCane, and Yours Truly. UMike if U are down and need a Suite or a Room Holla At Me. and or anyone else on the Hotel Front. But let me know ticket count and we will get the Group Ticket Discount and sitting with The Canes Family as we invade The ATL!


Any time my son wants to complain about something that is unfair, I show him the video of Shaquem Griffin. I will never complain about what I can’t accomplish. Griffin shows us what is possible when we stop complaining, focus on what is possible, and get to work.


TSully we will be down for the GT game for sure, but probably won't need any rooms unless it's a prime time game. We are only like an hour and 45 mins away.

Today in 1865 Grant starts his final campaign to defeat Lee. Lee will surrender on April 9th.

Terrance Sullivan

Ok UMike I feel you Brotha. I will let you all know about the ticket setup in the coming days and weeks.


HRD...are you reading a book about the Civil War? I have read a few good ones recently myself about the Civil War and The Revolutionary War.


I almost drove to Fort Myers to watch the Canes baseball team play FGCU. Glad I talked myself out of that one!

Terrance Sullivan

86 glad you didn't either Brotha.

There's never good reason to drive to Fort Myers unless you're heading to Sanibel.

Go Canes!!

The beach is nice.

The book I am "reading" right now is mostly pictures of Civil War uniforms, although whenever I have an actual book, I try to read with this giant map book that my wife bought me a few years ago. Its awesome because it also has surveys of topography so you can see what Union positions or Confederate positions actually looked like on the day of each battle. Im always open to new books though if you have any recommendations.

Also for anyone just generally interested, the Civil War Trust Youtube videos are awesome.

Great post.


Thanks dude. Just watched the Gettysburg YouTube video (I'm a history major from Stetson-'86- who's senior thesis was Picketts charge)...


▪ Quarterback N’Kosi Perry has improved, but one observer said his deep ball is not as good as Malik Rosier’s even though Perry’s arm is excellent.

Perry sometimes spins out of trouble when he’s under pressure and ends up turning his back on a play — in other words toward his own backfield. But that can be corrected.

And there has been overall growth in his game. He’s playing more relaxed.

“It seems like some first-year quarterbacks, they’re not vocal because they don’t want to say the wrong thing,” center Tyler Gauthier said last week. “Now, you can tell he’s more assertive. He’s going to walk in there and he wants eyes on him in the huddle. He’s going to make a play call and we’re going to run it and that’s the way it’s going to be. It’s definitely good to see him step up as a leader like that.”

Rosier has a solid camp. He made one of the best plays in camp, avoiding a blitz, ducking out of traffic and running for a touchdown of close to 40 yards.

Jarren Williams has impressed everyone with his arm strength but must learn to vary the speed on his throws. Mark Richt previously said he doesn’t expect Williams to challenge for the starting job this spring but that he might in August.

One UM official said Cade Weldon clearly has improved. He’s big, strong, can throw on the run and has a good grasp of the offense.

Come on Jarren Williams. Need to be the Guy.

James Longstreet is my favorite general, in terms of leadership, focus, tactics. Its a good thing that Lee ignored Longstreet's advice at Gettysburg, or perhaps the South could have negotiated a peace settlement.

According to the coaches Jhavonte Dean has stepped it up, great news if you ask me. We're gonna open with a good group of Jackson, Bandy and Dean, while mixing in Ivey and Frierson who are also playing impressively for freshmen. Is Blades on campus right now? Ive always had him pegged at Safety.


Posted by: CaneRock | March 30, 2018 at 05:57 PM

I take these all as good news:

Rozier - Having a solid camp, clearly healthy now

Perry - Improved, more confident, has not hit ceiling

Weldon - Improved, knows the offense.

Williams - Wildcard - may end up further along at the end of the summer than Weldon or Perry were at the close of August 2017


I’d hope that Rosier is doing good after being here for 5 yrs.


Herb U could not have said it any better!


Last thing I'll say until others have their chance, I believe that our defense has only begun to flex their muscle. That night against Notre Dame will be the norm next year. They'll start by holding LSU to 13 or less. Offense will score 20 to 27 by the 3rd qtr, and we may get a late TD. Orgeron's seat will be red hot.

Diaz is KEY to the whole thing. If he reroutes interior receivers at the line, our defense will keep us in it against anybody not ultra elite like bama and Clemson.

His overblitzing and soft zone made our d good when it was on the edge of greatness. I think he develops players well. He just doesn’t understand you can’t over blitz the spread. It was created to beat the zone blitzes and freak d linemen.

Teams beat them with quick passes our offense does not use enough. We have the talent, just not the depth and overall experience. But if we stop allowing bum ass quarterbacks to instantly see easy mismatches and throw the ball in one and a half seconds, we can be special.

Our best pass d was with Bandy in the nickel. It must have been weak against the run in practice because we did not use it nearly enough.

I know Dude thought the cover 3 soft zone was fishing for turnovers but I think it is a combo of Diaz’s philosophy and to stop the run. Our turnover defense is cover 2 zone press and cover one rerouting interior receivers AT THE LINE. That is the defense that suffocates our opponents and create turnover opportunities. I saw that even with those beautiful picks Mike Jackson got in cover 3 lol.

It has been along time since I have been uncertain like this. This defense can be really good or really bad. Just depends on which Diaz shows up. I hope the vt - nd version and not the ran out Texas version. I don’t expect the Texas version of Diaz but our horrible 3rd down defense is a HUGE red flag.

It is weird. Our offense and defense have the same problem. Bad third down performance due to bad quick passing strategy/ execution. It is because we are still behind the times a little bit strategically. It can be fixed though. I hope 2018 is the year it happens.

Good stuff. He needs to stop stunting on running downs also, it has at times taken our linemen out of position. I do think the soft cover 3 is turnover fishing. He tries to have the nickel CB play the passing lane, seems clear to me. The problem is he's had to go to the well too often and its not working as well, in fact I can sit at home and call it frequently, if I can do that, so can an offensive coordinator. Im expecting another year winning the Coastal, outside of that I'm not sure.

^^^ One of the best coaches on the staff coaching them up. Coach Dugs has stacked WRs like this is Alabama. Should he ever leave, the new guy will be standing on 3rd base. We are in a position now where we can cherry pick WRs.

Okay QBs and OL, the team is waiting on you.


Gurvan Hall injured out for the remainder of spring


in other news Man City has to play at Liverpool Wednesday in the first of a home and home Champions league series then Saturday they play Man U for a chance to clinch the EPL title


Dude, Coach Duggans has gotten it done since he stepped on campus. Duggans first got Richards to stick with the Canes, and each year since, he stacks the Canes with 4 and 5 star talent. 2019 and 2020 WR classes are also loaded. Duggans also has shown he can develop talent, getting three stars to make big plays for the Canes. Glad CMR found a way to keep him from going to Tallahassee. That would have been a devastating loss


The Canes are really tearing it up on the recruiting trail. The Canes are on fire 🔥 today! As Baez would say, “THE BLOCK IS HOT!" Lots of high-profile recruits giving their pledge to the Canes today!


Canes commitments after hosting underclassmen today include:

Tampa Jesuit TE Dominic Mammarelli
Miami Central CB HENRY Gray


Miami Central offensive lineman Laurence Seymor
Monsignor Pace LB/S James Williams
