I am going to say this again for the people in the back. VT and BC are our remaining big games and tests we must pass. I live in the present and not in the past. Duke if healthy will be our 3rd toughest game. And it goes from there. But hey I just call it how it is. Being Fatal is overlooking teams like BC who Kicked FSU arse like a pulp last year and will most likely do that again. and VT who kicked FSU arse this year and is always a pain in our arse and newsflash had we lost to them last year they would have won the coastal and not us. so spare me the BS.

BC is going to be in kill mode against us, we will have to play our best game against them I think

There IT is right there.

I cant believe we are actually concerned about BC.....

Posted by: raizecane | September 17, 2018 at 01:38 PM

So U think we will beat them "convincingly"?

If so, post it here, and now.

Go Canes!!

What team is? Just about everyone outside of Tuscaloosa does.

If you look at the overall game, we had one bad quarter which we adjusted to. They were completely shut down in the fourth quarter.

Hurricanes QB Malik Rosier: ’40-plus points should be the standard’

Rosier said it, not me ;-)

CoCane

FSU can be tough game for us.

They have a lot of talent. They're just laying down on Taggert. Taggert lost his team the moment he unveiled the "turnover satchel". 😂😂😂😂😂

They will play for each other with pride and purpose against us.

VT and BC should be tough games too. Conference road games can be a mutha f*cka.

When Nosier is your QB, you have a chance too lose to anyone. Anywhere.

Our name still carries weight. Beating us would be the biggest win of the season for every team left on our schedule.

WE HAVE TO BRING IT

SOUP

1. My favorite player on defense, Bandy, made a great interception;

2. Pinkney decided to come a play in the fourth quarter, and he made some big tackles for loss and sack.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | September 17, 2018 at 03:49 PM

1. Did you vote for him for your LOF?

2. This is true. He had a bad first half but cam back strong in the second. He was a man with a bad attitude and it showed!

SOUP

With our poor fundamentals and inconsistent play, we can’t pencil an automatic win against ANYONE.

"WE" are only responsible for the tailgating and the cherring.

"THEY" are responsible for the play and the score and the outcome.

Once I learned to separate the two I became a much happier and healthier person. Oh, and much easier to live with also. IJS

Ever team ebbs and flows. Nobody is gonna win every quarter 21-0. Not even Bama .That’s not what a mean.

I am talking about a strong fundamental game where we control a weaker opponent from start to finish. Curb stomp them early and grind them to the finish. Like those games where you win 27-13 or 31-20, but it was never that close.

You could argue Toledo was that type of game, but I would disagree. We started fast and finished strong, but made mistakes that had us sweating in the third quarter.

I watch a lot of teams. We allow things more consistently that other teams similar to us don’t. Teams with lower recruiting rankings and less local talent.

You are right, but it is HARD!

The first ime I cried over a football game, I was nine years old. We dominated our way to a 13-0 record. After stomping a team from Brandon 40-0 in the rain, we had to wake up and play a FREEZING early morning game. We lost 12-6 after our best end dropped the game tying score in the end zone late in the 4th quarter of the championship game.PURE HEARTBREAK.

The second time I cried over a game was the 93 Sugar Bowl. I still have nightmares of George Teague running down Lamar Thomas.

That and Scott Covington being gift wrapped around the goal post.

I’m ALL IN with this Canes shyt!

Terrance Sullivan

Amen Soup! I stopped letting Games dictate how my weekend went. Have a great weekend The Outcome of the Game is a bonus.

When you look at the 5 year rankings, the list of teams doing far less with more is much longer than those doing more than us with less.

A good team is ran by coaches. A great team is Ran by players. I’ve been apart of both.. know the difference. Not the coaches fault.

Its these people that prolong the suffering... and I love it...

For all the players play, coaches coach and fans cheer B.S. that players & coaches like to throw at us, they are at least 9 out of 10 times wrong about what good football looks like. Heck, many of us have been fans longer than theyve been alive, we know what it looks like, weve seen the pitfalls 1,000 times.

His Majesty The Dude on High

If FSU knows what is good for them, theyll hire a very expensive coaching staff to go around the Artard running their program, then can him as soon as they can save face, and finally bring in a serious person.

1. I didn’t vote for Bandy. My vote for LOF this season is Jaquan, the same as last year. I voted with my head over my heart. Bandy is my favorite defensive player because of his heart and what he brings to the game.

There are a lot of Canes defensive players to like. Willis, Shaq, Pinkney and Garvin, just to name a few. But IMO, Jaquan is the best defensive player on the field not only because of his stats, but the way he gets his Teammates lined up. Jaquan has been special since his days at Killian, but Bandy has a special place in my heart.

The Dude,
right you are brother!
I remember getting free Canes tickets from Burger King and WFUN just so there would be somebody in the stands.
When I saw Otis Anderson run I was hooked for life. I never let 85 19 year old boys determine how my weekend would go then or now tho

I cried too and I was in the stadium to see it with my wife. She hated me after the game because my behavior was inappropriate. I was sad beyond repair. Spent some flow to see it and that was the last time I cried over the Canes. I been hurt since, but never cried like that night.

Now I see things very differently.

My family and many friends like Terrance, KYCane, NativeCane, Old Skool, Kenny, Raize, Solar, UMike and many, many others know whats up and where I stand. Life is good, win or lose. We have done more than football and are wiser from it.

Just another wake up is all I want.

Dude, people always want to make football a purely physical game. Our athletes are better than yours, so we will win. But there is a reason Vegas exists.

X’s and o’s are vital, but it is more than that. The Midas touch is when you get a hc and staff that can control their teams EMOTIONALLY and MENTALLY. They build their players confidence. They capture their focus and imagination. They instill discipline and accountability.

The players often do “want it” for the most part, but they are young men with little real experience and wisdom. They need the leadership of grizzled older men.

Fbs football is high stakes and most coaches wilt under the pressure, even though they are experts earning six and seven figure salaries. When players start to see cracks in their coaches armor, it falls apart QUICK.

FSU is LOADED with four and five star talent, but has underperformed for several years. Why? Off the field problems. No one talks about the rumors of Candy Fisher having sexual relations with players. THATis what melted the program and sent Jimbo packing without giving FSU a chance to match the offer.

People who ignore the CRITICAL psychological role coaches play in player execution get to watch bad football with a reward of embarrassing losses.

I was at that game as well! Ugh! I was 12 at the time and never been so mad in my life! Bourbon St was quite the experience for a 12 year old though! At least I got something out of the trip!

thirstybuzzardcane

👆👆👆Being at the 1991 National Championship is something I will never forget! Best time of my life!

After the game we were in the lobby of the team hotel,and saw Joe Cole's (Jupiter native & 4th string QB) parents who we knew. They told us about the victory party and said anyone could go, so we did. I was a 10 year old in heaven!

Old Skool

Ahh WFUN. That's back in the day when WQAM was 610. Rick Shaw was a DJ and they had the Tiger logo for the station you hung from the rear view mirror. The Palmetto Expressway was clean and uncrowded. And there were Playboy clubs in Miami Beach and across the street from a new mall called Dadeland.
Dem waz de days

Go Canes!!

You could only get to the Sporatorium by taking 67th Ave to Hollywood Blvd. Don't forget the Playboy Club on LeJeune by the airport. Field trips to the Serpentarium on US1 and going to El Farito en Key Biscayne was the highlight of the summer.

Those, as they say, were the days.

Its not unlike the military. We had a Chief in bootcamp, he was removed from our division because we were a walking sh*t show. Any time we did something wrong, he'd punish us with intense, punitive work outs. We were very physically fit because of it, when it came to PT tests, we'd have the highest success rates, but we were very far from being a cohesive unit. We all blamed each other for faailures and we'd fail miserably at anything that didnt have to do with PT, there were several cliques that destabilized unity, and everyone was looking out for number 1. Then along came Chief Boykins. Tall, funny in his way, to the point and leadership for miles. In 2 weeks he pushed us to the limit and the air changed. We all liked each other, we were proud of ourselves, we were learning the stuff we needed to know, and we started marching with a swagger.

Go Canes!!

Wow we are officially in deep doo doo at TE if we have even the slightest injury going forward:

Reynolds: Sophomore tight end Brian Polendey has sustained a right knee injury and will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, per UM #Canes #theU

Soup & KYCane It looks like the Canespace Four Play will be February 22-24. Because right now the Men's Basketball Team Host GT on Saturday Feb 23rd at 2pm and Women's Basketball host FSU at High Noon on February 24th. Just waiting on Baseball and Women's Tennis Schedule to complete the Four Play.

Exactly. If this post doesn’t make people understand, they just won’t.

You take the same group of guys, tasked with performing the same goal. Change the person in charge, and the end result changes drastically.

I bet that both chiefs were qualified intellectually to get the job done. I bet they were teaching the same technique. But the difference in the WAY they applied the techniques resulted in polar opposite outcomes.

Now I am not saying Richt should be replaced.

But the thing is, whether it is you, me , Richt or anyone else, you ARE YOUR TRACK RECORD.

The only way to become anything other than your track record is to make MASSIVE change, whether for better or for worse.

Unless, I fly to Fla, Tom picks me up and chaperones me to the tailgating, and to a game. Maybe next year.

All valid points. But I again ask, when looking at a five year recruiting window, who is doing more with less in big time football?

Imo the list is far, far shorter than those doing less with more.

Native, hell ya..
If I was gonna cry about something that plane crash would be right up at the top of list.

I don't know if you ever heard of a place called Pitates Workd in Dania Fl

You could go in an get hurt on every ride in the place, then stick around and see Johnny Winter, Grand Funk,Jeff Beck with Rod Stewart on vocals and dozens more every week talk about taking things for granted.
