What we do know is that unlike last year, if Malik struggles, we have two four stars and a three star on the bench, with no threat of ruining anyone’s long term eligibility.
That helps me sleep better with Malik’s inaccuracy.

YUP! Me too!


Miami coach Mark Richt on Clemson’s defensive line- “I thought they had all turned pro... I guess they like the slide.”

We gotta find a way to get these guys the ball.

Maybe the QB can do that?

Maybe the OC can call the right plays?

Maybe I will win the Lotto and NONE of this will matter as I sit on my Yacht in the Caribbean and drink single malt while eating fresh seafood!

Go Canes!!

Great stuff Go Canes. Looks like CMR’s ACC record of 12-4 the last two years pushed Miami ahead from a middle of the pack ACC team to an upper echelon ACC team during this period. The Canes’ record should only improve this season. What a difference CMR is making!

Go Canes!!

Wait, wait, wait!

According to the above, we have LESS of a chance of beating BC, GT and VT than FSU???

Terrance Sullivan

Well BC did beat the crap outta 7-6 FSU last year lol.

Terrance Sullivan

BC 35- FSU 3 last year. Hopefully we go to Boston this year and handle bizness and dont get handled like FSU did last year lol.

58 Straight

BC had an excellent defense last year. Who graduated?

58 Straight

BC lost two CBs and one DE to the NFL draft in the 2nd, 3rd, and 6th rounds. Still there defensive scheme looked solid. Let me check the stats.

58 Straight


Wisconsin and Clemson were REALLY good.

Here are the NCAA 2017 Rankings:

Total Defense: Wisky 2, Clemson 4, UM 38

Scoring Defense: Wisky 3, Clemson 2, UM 37

Rushing Defense: Wisky 3, Clemson 12, UM 43

Passing Defense: Wisky 1, Clemson 5, UM 23

Still work to be done. No wonder we had trouble scoring.

58 Straight

Boston College did not compare except when it comes to passing D, hence the three NFL draft picks (@ CGs, 1 DE). Their rankings:

Total D: 57

Scoring D: 37

Rushing D: 93

Passing D: 3


Good info SOUP...

I'm kinda shocked that our rushing defense ended up as our weakest link last year...

THAT stat has GOT to improve mightily this year.

Terrance Sullivan

Well they both finished in the Top 5 lol. And went a combined 26-3 lol.

Terrance Sullivan

Correction they went a combined 25-3 and both finished in Top 6.

Go Canes!!

Some teams, like Michigan State and now BC, play tough D every year.

That team is going to be a tough W.


Getting fired up about Paradise Camp next weekend. Superstar lineup of Canes alumni coming.


Crickets chirping...


Anybody catch Shaq on Shark Week last night? it was "must watch" tv.....



Storm18.. Nice look at our class

Go Canes!!

Recruiting Miss State and recruiting in Florida are two different animals.

So Yep:

Woken: It’s still early, but taking the Florida job at the same time a very good Miami staff has it rolling in recruiting and Willie Taggart gets hired in Tallahassee is not great timing for Dan Mullen.


Great video Umike! The TE's are going to be studs!

Go Canes!!

ACC preseason media poll:

1. Clemson
2. FSU
3. NC State
4. Boston College
5. Louisville
6. Wake Forest
7. Syracuse

1. Miami
2. Virginia Tech
3. Georgia Tech
4. Duke
5. Pitt
6. UNC
7. Virginia

Clemson gets 139 votes to win ACC, UM 5, NC State 2, FSU & VT 1

Terrance Sullivan

Well that Poll is right to me. It will probably be slihtly different in the end as far as order but not too different. Go Canes!

Storm 18 look like Nasty Weather UMike!

Go Canes!!

Poeple sometimes forget CMR has only had one full recruting class play for him here. We all saw what they did last season.

One paper, especially offensively, this class appears to be even better.

Going to be awesome watching these young guys grow and develop, while continuing to add two or three equally or more talented classes to what he's brought in already.

I like the film on RB Camron Davis from Carol City.

More than that i like his Oline. Did you see the blocking and the holes he was running through? OH MY! Even I could run through those gaps! That is IF I felt like running of course, which I don't.

I only run when being chased by the police, and even then I am only good for a short burst.


Thought it was Bears 🐻 that you don’t like

58 Straight

Bears make me run too, and for longer distamces, I forgot about that!
