cam davis has a special burst ...really fast

the coaches need to be more persuasive when Richt starts talking about who should be on the field..he totally dropped the ball this year.

Did PMR retire??? If so, then YES!!!

Dear Coach Les Miles,

Seeing that you have just been appointed new head coach at Kansas, you will be on the hunt for some assistant coaches. Please do NOT come to the University of Miami and poach our coaches! We have the best staff we've ever had, these corches... I mean coaches just so happen to be from SEC schools too... not that it matters tho. Thanks in advance!

P.S. the coach that we value the most is our QB coach, he's the best in the business! Please don't take him!

raizecane

I just want to hear that the Canes had another "spirited" week of practice. By "spirited" I mean fights.......

something lit a fire under their asses last week and the same should happen this week.

Terrance Sullivan

I am glad that I was wrong I thought after we lost Homecoming to Duke 2 weeks ago that we would lose out and miss a bowl game and finish with a 5-7 season. Let's win at least one more game to ensure that we at least finish with a winning record. Oh how I would love for us to win out. That would take our Season from a Texas Sized Turd Season to a Delaware Sized Turd Season Ya Dig!

solarcane

Soup nice article good vibe

mi@mic@ne

Advice to Richt... " I treat the good players different from the average players." JJ...You cannot win by playing slow and no so good athletes.

solarcane

First you have to have good players

For this reverse psychology to work, Lawrence Kansas has to have something to sell over Miami Florida in the first place, Willie.

Good luck with that . . .

solarcane

Sully,
Playing for a Delaware size turd season should give them plenty of incentive, next year a Rhode Island steaming pile should be the goal.

Terrance Sullivan

Yes Sir Solar!

mi@mic@ne

we have best athlete in the ACC. Cam, the freshman o line, Perry, our receivers...highlighting Thomas who should have been doing all the ball handling on punts, kickoffs...but Richt would not play them based on talent. He played the slower guys..the olinemen who were average athletes that put on weight and the bad qb and slow backs because they were better familiar with the offense.Thats not what we did back in the day. We put our best athletes on the field even tho they did not fully understand the play book. We lost because the athletes were sitting on the bench. They got to be directed on the field by the older guys.

orange 'n green in the vein

The line has already shed half a point in favor of the 2018 champion of the coastal, Ducheine must be expected to play if it keeps shrinking in the same direction.

How'd that preseason poll turn out?;

http://www.theacc.com/news/2018/7/23/clemson-leads-acc-football-preseason-poll.aspx

Coastal Division (First place votes)

Miami (122) – 998 [tied for 4th]
Virginia Tech (16) – 838 [tied for 4th]
Georgia Tech (8) – 654 [2nd in clubhouse]
Duke (1) – 607 [tied for 4th]
Pitt – 420 [1st sidtard sports writers!]
North Carolina (1) – 370 [basement 7th]
Virginia – 257 [3rd]

I am very happy that Soup's Christmas wishes are coming true.

LOL, TSully. At least a Delaware-sized turd can be easily flushed, and the toilet will look like new for the next visitor to the toilet. A little air freshener might even make it a more pleasant place for the next visitor.

But a Texas-sized turd may cause a toilet malfunction, overflow, stain the floor and require a call to the local plumber. Texas size may require wholesale changes in (personnel, coaches, etc.) just to fix it properly, while Delaware-size might just require a few recruits, a new playcaller, OL coach and/or OC.

cam davis has a special burst ...really fast
Posted by: mi@mic@ne | November 18, 2018 at 10:58 PM

Agree 100%. Aside from a special burst, Davis also has RB vision and feet. I don't know what he is listed at, but I can confirm that Davis is bigger and faster than Homer, and he is a natural RB. With Lingard injured, Davis is the best RB on the roster right now. When Lingard comes back next season, this could be the best RB1-RB2 combination the Canes have had in years. If they continue to put in the work, both could be very good NFL RBs.

Terrance Sullivan

BigWindyCane1 Bingo My friend!

solarcane

Next year we have two of the best running backs in the ACC, a great tight end
wide receivers with blazing speed and below average hands

Watch Richt switch to a 4 wide set next season and waste a 1000 yrd running back thats how he rolls

solarcane

FSU gets FIVE ACC players of the week in one game....give me a break

MLAlumni1970

Seems that we have some fight left. Let's win at Pitt, come home and prepare for a bowl game. No matter how small of a bowl game, most schools would trade places with the U in a split second.
I still love my CANES no matter what!!!!
Players play and GOOD coaches mold them to be outstanding men of the U.
Basketball is where we go next. I like that Chris Lykes. He reminds me of Shane Larkin. (I call him Sugar Shane).

AeroCane

Solar
Totally agree except - 2 great tight ends!

BigWindyCane

Kelly Bryant cancelled his official visit to Miami, and will go to Auburn instead. It looks like Perry’s performance on Saturday discouraged Bryant and made him doubt that he could actually win the starting job. CMR also made some positive comments about Perry in the media.

I am SOUP, and I approve this message.

1. Aside from a special burst, Davis also has RB vision and feet.

2. I can confirm that Davis is bigger and faster than Homer, and he is a natural RB.

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | November 19, 2018 at 02:07 PM

1. Even though all RBs have "feet" (LOL) his vision allows his burst to be purposeful and meaningful. Running full speed in the wrong direction or into the pile does nothing for anybody. Seeing the crease or the lane and accelerating into it towards daylight is what separates the great from the average.

2. Vision, burst, balance and lateral acceleration or the ability to change direction without losing speed are the hallmarks of a great running back.

Watch Devin Hester change direction on a return at FULL SPEED without losing any forward acceleration was a thing of beauty!

Soup for Continuity purposes We do Golf at RTJ in Prattville and we do 6 on the Alabama River Scenic Trail it's in nearby Wetumpka through Tallassee. All 3 suburban cities of Montgomery within 20 miles of me. Going to be a whole lot of BBQ, Fishing, Golfing, Drinking, and Hopefully y'all will be here when the Montgomery Biscuits Double A Affiliate of the Tampa Bay Ray's. We will coordinate it all. UMike are U Down.

Herbieibis

Dam The Herb a negative Nellie, say it ain't so!
Should I say, I tell it like it is.
Now the reverse psychology worked this past weekend. Yes I gave in after 4 lousy weeks and I picked us to lose. I should of know better because we are only good for 4 in a row but I saw no light at the end of the tunnel. Now maybe there is a glint.
Now, I'm not going to be tooting no horn just yet. That Va. Tech was a shell of it's former self.
The Herb has always said we have talent and should not be losing to these stiffs.
As long as Richt is calling the plays, as long as continue to neglect our O-Tackle situation, as long as we have the shanked brothers (Beagles & Slicer) punting and now we have none, zero, nada, zilch TE's available against Pitt, these games will be tight.
Have to make off season changes. Glad V.Tech threw us a bone and we are going to a dog bowl. It sucks but it's better than not going at all.
They all need to get their asses out there recruiting some dam stud lineman (Tackles) on both sides of the ball.

Well that is terrible. Thomas is apparently gone.

5. NO COOLERS ARE ALLOWED

NativeCane

Homers like Go Canes and Big Windy Cane were absolutely giddy with the results. RoachCane, KYCane and NativeCane simply could not believe their eyes at the offensive outburst. It was a performance not seen around here recently.

And even traditional "Negative Nancies" like WWIN, AeroCane and Herbibis had no bad words to say about Miami's hot performance on this cold night in Blacksburg, VA.

Richt said," Let there be offense" and there was offense and we could see it was good.

Dem Canes!!!

NativeCane

Posted by: SOUP | November 20, 2018 at 08:10 PM

Been a while since I played a round. I hate the barn because if you don't putt it straight through the front door to the back door you can lose your balls.
Bank shots, the loop da loop, the pipe tunnel, and the windmill are some my favorites.

Posted by: TonyCane | November 21, 2018 at 12:19 AM

Fake news?

TonyCane

Possibly. I saw the Thomas post last night and did some digging, going down a rabbit hole of rumor, disinformation, and negativity. If some of the sources are to be believed, Thomas, Harley, and Pope are all transferring.

Terrance Sullivan

And TonyCane I will be totally cool with it. Lets face it outside of Thomas. Harley has been a bust as far as He Has no TD Catches in 2 years. Good blocker but a Bust and Pope has 1 catch the whole season I wish nothing but the best for these young men b ut Next men Up at The U!

Terrance Sullivan

TonyCane let me further illustrate my point Thomas, Harley, and Pope in a combined 59 Games amongst the 3 WR's they have 1,261 Yards Receiving and 5 TD's most of that by Jeff Thomas as he has roughly 850 yards receiving and the 5 TD's. Now that is 2 4 Stars and a 5 Star.

Go Canes!!

From a guy at CIS who everyone apparently believes 100%:

The news is not totally fake but not all correct. My sources in the program just gave me an update.
1. JT4 and Dugans got into it at practice because he came in late and he got mad after practice and pack his stuff and left for home. They say he has been moping around with a bad attitude for a few weeks which is why he never started the last game. Part of it is because he misses his daughter at home. Right now he is out for this week but the coaches are given him the time to clear his head and work with him to see if he wants to come back, kinda like what they did with Willis who had issues. Oh by the way he was never going to start this weekend for coming to practice late.

2. Jarren was mad about the graduate transfer situation and wants to transfer but they are working that out since Bryant not coming again.

3. Pope mad about playing time but his parents or on him to not transfer.

4. There is a real disconnect between the upper class and freshmen which has somewhat divided the locker room because the freshmen has an entitled attitude, believing that they should be playing over the upper class. In other words they came in with the entitlement attitude.

My personal opinion is that its very ironic that the side of the ball that has struggled is the offense with all these internal issues. DIaz got his boys on lock and HC needs to get house in order.

Go Canes!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

orange 'n green in the vein

Stand back everybody! GD is walking Fake Lame's talking points through, very important sid-tard dissemination in progress.

BigWindyCane

I can’t imagine Searles is coming back after the way the OL has performed this season. CMR should also look at bringing in a playcaller or OC to help him with the offense. Everything on offense needs to be re-evaluated. I hate to say this, but it is possible that Dugans and Brown are also not safe.

MLAlumni1970

Like CGNC says, (she is always the #1 in cane world), COACH OR GET OUT OF THE WAY. Richt had better get some new lessons, or be the laughing stock of the U.
He can join, THE GOLDEN CLUB, OF LOSERS, AND BE EMBARRASSED, FOREVER AND A DAY.
All you brilliant Canespacers should make a listing for the rest of us, of all the losers, (disappointments), the U has ever had. Both coaches, staff, and players.
Instead of the Golden Girls, it will now be forever named The Golden Club, adding as we go.
Then we need a name for the Greatest Hits Club, the greatest from the U at each position.
Back to heat more chicken soup, SOUP. Getting a little light headed.
HAPPY TURKEY DAY CANESPACERS. I LOVE ALL OF YOU.

TonyCane

Go Canes, if Williams is willing to do that in the face of Bryant only playing one year, I would think that it is guaranteed that he will transfer if Perry wins the job. And likewise, Perry probably transfers if Jarren wins the job.

At best, we will only have two quarterbacks on the roster when we take the field against Florida. It's possible that Cade also transfers, leaving us with just one.

I guess the other question that nobody asks is this....what if Williams AND Perry AND Weldon all transfer? Does DJ Dallas become the new QB as we finally change our offense...to that of Paul Johnson's?

Alex D

Happy Thanksgiving Legion/Canespace. This Pitt game serves as several factors. 1. This game is probably best bigger than any mediocre bowl the U will play this year due to Pitt being ranked and also the Coastal Division Champion. 2. Pitt used the Miami game last year as their home bowl game and ended the U's winning streak and playoff hopes. 3. The U finally get a game at home in late November rather then playing at Pitt or Boston College in frigid conditions or better yet during the night when the weather is even colder. 4. To make things fare this game kick off at high noon Miami time so it can be sweaty hot and humid; and yes, turn off the air conditioning off in the stadium so the Pitt fans can burn up too. 5. Payback is a b*tch, I remember the Pitt team dancing after the game and mocking the turnover chain. Just my take. What's good CGNC? I see you DallasTXCane. Everybody on the blob, please have a safe and enjoyable holiday.

Scout reporting Thomas has been dismissed from the team.

His Majesty The Dude on High

No one is really eating in this awfense, when that happens, fingers start pointing. Ultimately you need a coach to take all the blame so the kids dont start blaming each other and looking out for number 1. MR should be falling on his sword weekly, promising changes... alas, hes not because he will try and keep the OC title.

His Majesty The Dude on High

^^^ Miami is a 10-1 talent team with a 6-5 record, no one knows that better than the kids on the team. Pope has not gotten enough reps, he should be pissed. So should Harley, so should Thomas. Their coach should be LEADING them through these trying times... instead......

mi@mic@ne

thomas was a very big part of the win last week...this is crazy....he plays a qb who should never see the field and he cant keep his best players happy..recipe for losing.

solarcane

We go from best receivers in the nation,

to a tragic injury,

a kid that's just a kid,

3 receivers with sketchy hands,

a tight end that is getting more credit than he has playing time,

A true all conference tight end,

And maybe a Partridge in a pear tree

mi@mic@ne

richt has not been successful at building relationships with the good players...now he hides behind his team rules.He is using the rules to keep from being held accountable by the players.
