If Nosier ever goes to jail. When he has to squat and cough, Willie will fall from Malik's azzhole like bird droppings...

Go Canes!!

I was watching the FSU game the other night and the announcers made a comment about Jimbo saying completion percentage doesn't mean squat!

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | July 24, 2018 at 09:32 PM

Then every college coach I've ever heard, besides Jimbo, is wrong.

And even if true, what other measuring tool would you like to use to measure?

Last six games, as the teams, as a whole, got better:

9 TD passes and 8 INTS

Passing yards: 202, 137, 210, 187, 110, 203

Wins 3 losses 3.

Above average games? Honestly, zero.


I'm hoping some of it was due to the shoulder injury, but you could see many of the same issues in games we were winning early.

Overall, I'm torn on what I want for next season at QB. Would love to see Malik get past his many inconsistencies and be the Senior leader this team leads. But I'd also love to see a young guy blow up in fall camp and take hold of this offense for the next four years.

So far Perry appears to be disappointing and Williams excelling. We will all see soon enough who the #2 guy will be coming in, now that there are no redshirt fears.

One thing I do know for sure is if the level of QB stays as it was at season's end, we are still good enough to perhaps win the Coastal, but we will be little threat to Clemson and have no chance of being a Final Four team.

We need good to be great and great to get beyond Charoltte.

If I remember correctly, didn't Richards drop 3 would be touchdown passes last year?

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | July 24, 2018 at 09:35 PM

Yes and he was not the only one. There were many beautiful passes dropped by receivers.

Malik was not the same after he took that hit against UNC. If he is healthy this year, he will be an even better version of early season Malik last year. We can go a LONG way with that.

It won’t.

We will be much better regardless of who wins the job. This is the season we see Searles do his traditional work in the run game. Interior line play will be better. There will be longer, more consistent drives.

We just have to make Dj our Percy Harvin and we will have enough to squeeze out the yards, points, and t.o.p. we need to take the next step and at least COMPETE with Clemson.

12-0.

Don't know what smart is selling at Georgia but they just got their 4th 5 star verbal for 2019. If they keep them that's 10 and counting in a year. Georgia has always had good High school football but they've never had this type of success.

Homer will have a huge year!! Heck, he had a huge year last year...1,200 total yards is unbelievable if you consider he didn't start the first 4 games.

Yes you have to be a football guru to know you need a dominant QB to go. The distance.

Why don’t you sink your vast knowledge of he game down to Canes fan level and tell me who, outside of Bama, has won it without a great QB in the last 10-15 years?

Coastal is a mess and Miami is easily the most talented/experienced team in the division so it's expected that they win. Pending how the QB and OL play, I firmly believe Miami can win the ACC championship and have a shot at the playoffs. The team has to make up for the dismal 3 points scored in last year's ACCCG, which embarrassingly, is the lowest amount scored in the history of the game.

#KellyTough:

"Scans performed Wednesday by doctors in New York showed no evidence of oral cancer in Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

The scans came almost four months after Kelly underwent a 12-hour surgery March 28 to remove the cancer and reconstruct his upper jaw. Kelly announced March 1 that doctors had found evidence of oral cancer after he had been cancer-free for more than three years."

Players to trust

M. Jackson
J. Johnson
Pinckney
Quarterman
D. Jackson
J. Jackson
Bandy
Gauthier
Richards
Homer
Dallas
J. Thomas

Every other player in the 2 deep has to prove they can take their game to another level.

So the Nosier slobbers can relax. He ain't the only one.

Now show your true colors and defend the rest of the players that still have to prove they can bring it every Saturday...

LOL CoCane the Rosier Slobbers are like Lebron Slobbers when the Team wins he gets all the credit when we lose it's everyone else fault lol. They are a cult. Gotta love them tho lol.

Hi Canespacers
Do any of you know where I can buy 2 tickets to the Miami vs. Toledo game? As many of you know, I live north of Detroit, and my boyfriend Richard can easily drive the distance. Otherwise, it may be years before I see my beloved CANES play again. Just had my 70th birthday, and who knows when the Bon Deux (good Lord) knocks. Not before I move to Florida this winter.
GO CANES

MLAlumni1970 I would suggest Calling Toledo Ticket Office or Stubhub.

Oh,The Herb says the Coastal is ours, no doubt But we ain't:t their yet when it comes to getting by Clemson. Their front 4 on defense, is basically nothing but 1st rounders. Whom ever is qbing us by that time would have to have the game of their life passing for us to win.

Not surprised GC. This means the Canes are a legitimate threat to make the college football playoffs

Terrance Sullivan

Pretty much the consensus of polls have Us between 6-10. We average around being Preseason #8. Need to play up to that ranking or even better. Basically 12-2 season.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: Terrance Sullivan | July 26, 2018 at 07:30 AM

Agree.

Though it likely won't matter at the end, the LSU game will probably affect our ranking for the majority of the season.

A loss to them gives every SEC homer the excuse to rank a 3-4 loss team in that conference above a 1-2 loss Canes team.

Go Canes!!

5-Star T Evan Neal Still Taking Time With Decision As Mom Pushes For Miami

David Wilson


BRADENTON -- Evan Neal knows it's not exactly a secret where most of his family would like to see him wind up at the next level. The 5-star tackle grew up a Miami fan, has family which has played for the Hurricanes and grew up closer to Coral Gables than either of the other Big 3 Florida schools.

And, of course, his mother is a factor, too. Even from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Neal talks to his parents every night about his potential college decision. Almost very night, his mother makes her voice heard.

"If it was up to her," Neal said Wednesday at IMG's media day in Bradenton, "I'd already be committed to Miami."

This isn't exactly new news. Neal first mentioned his mother's fixation on the Hurricanes almost a year ago after he visited Hard Rock Stadium for Miami's home finale against Virginia in November. A few months later, the offensive lineman told reporters ahead of the Under Armour All-America Game's Future 50 combine in January that the Hurricanes were doing the best job of recruiting his parents.

But months later, Neal still doesn't foresee an impending decision.

"She’s on me about it, man, but it’s a decision that I’m going to have to make. I’m going to take my time. I don’t want to jump the gun on any type of decision because I only get one," Neal said. "It'll either happen throughout the course of the season or right after the season because I'm early enrolling."

Right now, Neal is most concerned with preparing for his senior season with the Ascenders. IMG won't even let players loose this weekend ahead of fall camp's official start Monday. This means Neal won't be at Paradise Camp on Saturday, nor will he check out Florida State or Alabama. If he were able to take a visit this weekend, Neal said he'd most likely see either the Seminoles or Crimson Tide.

Neal's focus on football rather than the recruiting process is paying off so far. The senior earned a bump to 5-star status in the 247Sports composite rankings after a strong performance at The Opening finals. He continues to reshape his body, as well, as he's down about 30 pounds from the 385 pounds he played his junior season at.

It's still a work in progress for Neal, who realized how much weight he needed to cut in the spring. Packers tackle Bryan Bulaga, as many professional athletes do, spent part of the spring training at IMG. As good as Neal is, Bulaga still wasn't sold on the elite prospect. The offensive lineman told an Ascenders trainer he wouldn't draft Neal if he was a general manager.

"Because I was too fat," Neal said. "That kind of resonated with me. If he’s someone who’s already there and one of the best in the business, and he said he wouldn’t draft me, obviously I’ve got to get with it. I’ve got to get right."

Neal is targeting 320-325 pounds by the time he's eligible to be drafted. He still has a little way to go.

His focus on football, however, means the Hurricanes will have the final impression on Neal as he heads into his senior season. The Okeechobee native visited Miami on June 6 with his father, two cousins and an uncle. While he'd visited a number of times in the past -- most recently for junior day March 24 -- this visit was a chance to have significant one-on-one time with coach Mark Richt and the rest of his staff.

"It was a really, really good visit. They threw everything and the kitchen sink at me, man. I even got to see the new indoor facility," Neal said. "They’ve got something special going on there."

Neal doesn't currently have any visits planned -- and no official visits locked in -- but expects to take a handful during IMG's bye week and after the season. He could also get creative and use the Ascenders' jet-setting schedule to check out some of his top schools. IMG, for example, wraps up the regular season with a road game against Hoover (Ala.) High School on Nov. 2, so he would like to visit Alabama the same weekend.

Indeed Go Canes!
