What

WWIN

Trucane81 killed it today!

Soup PAY THIS MAN!!!

WWIN

There are some days where I would pay someone some serious cash just to end this blog.

Then there are some days when I would pay a serious admission price just to get into this place.

Today is one of those days.

Posted by: SOUP | December 16, 2018 at 08:23 PM

So which day is it???

Either way... that'll be 305k... I'll take cash or check!

💲💲💲🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

SOUP

WWIN...when I grow up I wanna be like TruCane81.
He is a BIG picture guy who thinks BIG thoughts.

I love that stuff and as a result I am tripling his salary and giving him a retirement and benefit package unsurpassed in Canespace history. Even better than the one I negotiated with you for yourself and your other clients. The dude is on FIRE!

1. 6
2. 7 if Simpson gets a say as ast. HC

WINN you are right, TruCane81 brings it every time, plus he is funny as hell when he feels like it.

Tru!!!

See what I did there? Lol

Terrance Sullivan

1. Richt Gets a 8.25(Win Bowl Game it goes to 8.5 lose it and it goes to 8.0
2. Richt Gets a 7.75

Herbieibis

He kept the coaches to keep what hope he had, alive to salvage this class. I hope so because Bogel and Hasselwood aren't announcing till Jan. 5 at earliest. Richt gets a 5 and that is generous. If we don't get those croots hanging in the balance then he should get the can.

Terrance Sullivan

Herb if Richt gets a 5 and that's being generous what did Golden, Shannon, and last 3 years of Coker (2004-2006) grade they get.

SOUP

I thought it was clear WWIN it was a GOOD DAY!

IraqiCane

1. 6 too many lost games.
2. 2 no OC and now no DC, what the hell.

SOUP

1. Overall rating: 7 Richt, Golden 5, Shannon 4
2. Recent decision: 3 Richt, Golden -1 for keeping DNo

SOUP

Richt will sink or swim with this decision, we ALL agree on that.

Terrance Sullivan

Soup Big Facts.

solarcane

OK this pains me to admit it
and I will take The Herb and CoCane kicking me in the nuts but..

on Richts good list I think he

Helped get the indoor facility a little sooner.

He brought back the coolest uniforms I have seen on the Canes in over a decade.


On his naughty list

He is a a warm pile at calling plays

He hired his son, who is a steaming pile at developing the guy that runs our three offensive plays.

TonyCane

My hopes are not high with Hasslewood or Bogle. I’m guessing that they end up Georgia commits

His Majesty The Dude on High

According to rivals there are NINE 4* CBs in SoFL, Miami has only 1 CB commit and he's the smallest of the bunch. All this with the #2 2ndary in America and another year of putting a starter into the NFL. All Rumph does is train excellent CBs, he does it every year... why cant this man recruit a f*cking lick? I accepted lasts year's haul, the big dogs arent coming yet, fine, let Rumph build his resume... well now his resume is pretty good, but isnt getting it done with recruiting. I get it if Dent & Elam werent coming... But Brownlee gone, Davis gone, Sanguinetti & Melvin gone too.

We arent going to out Bama or Clemson. But we can be a much better Miami. We already have the defense for it, now we just need to recruit that thing.

Two 4* DTs every year, not easy to find, but we need to sell the fast types like Ingraham that The U is where its at, its how to get money. Maybe we get an extra if theres a 3* we like, like Blissett that ended up a 4. DEs: 2 playable every year, maybe one to redshirt if we really like him (Garvin & Rouesseu). This year havi g Bogle, Williams, & Harvey locked in was more than enough. thats fire powern but alas, Boglea on his way to Bama unless we get lucky. 2 playable LBs every year. We always have 3* players here that can play (Perryman) is a fine example and I would take those guys redshirt em and bring them back like 5* the next season. Safety. Miami's always loaded. Mind you that Jaquan was a 3*. LoL. That kid had a perfect career, now hes gonna get paid, hes an elite CF SS. Lastly CBs, the two most elite ones every year will shut it down. Just imagine the depth with the 2 every year rule with CBs.

1. **** SR CB #1 Trayvon Mullen 6'1" 195
2. *** RSJR CB #12 Malek Young 5'10" 189
3. **** JR CB #2 Trajan Bandy 5'9" 188
4. **** JR CB #5 CJ Henderson 6'0" 185
5. ***** SO CB #3 Tyson Campbell 6'2" 185
6. ***** SO CB #23 Pat Surtain 6'2" 195
7. ***** FR CB #11 Akeem Dent 6'1" 180
8. **** RSFR CB #8 DJ Ivey 6'1" 190

Championship level right there.

Herbieibis

If Bogel don't come here it will be Bama.

Daddycane

F minus overall. Peeiod. Golden saw this thing through the whole sanctions and all of those distractions. He did a much better job. This guy is incompetent and if incompetence was a crime, he should be serving a life sentence it's absolutely pathetic. No real defensive coach would join his staff as they know it's a sinking ship and the incompetence of the athletic director which is unparalleled is crippling

What about pastor keeping his son???

Pastor has more resources than Golden, no cloud, and is doing less with more... how is he better than Golden other than him having a better reputation?

Go Canes!!

So now there was a cloud?

Now Golden saw them through such a tough time?

Lol.

The cloud is still here... that's why we hired the reverend!

Herbieibis

Dude,
It's same old problem with us in recruiting, we pick out certain guys and go after them hard, get a few verbals and we think we're done. Some like Sanguanetti, Davis and Melvin we didn't go hard after. Elam, they probably thought was going to Flo. being a legacy and they just recently started going after him hard. They put all there egs in a basket for the QB that went to Penn. St. Johnson.
Combine these tatics with a putrid showing offensively and losing to nobodies and the natives become restless. They read the stuff that's posted, they saw the results on the field. Kids want to win and play. We, for the most part will get the true Cane's kids that eat drink and sleep all things Miami, no matter what goes on but we also are losing kids that want to go here but won't because of the product on the field.
We have a couple of good recruiters but not closers.
We need to bring in at least one 4 star guy at each position each year. If we are bringing in 25 croots at least 14 to 16 should be of the 4 star variety. I think Richt has been here the most he has brought in is maybe 20. I'm not counting grad players. He also has left certain positions go and not recruited it hard, like the CB position to begin with. Same goes with the OT position. He needs to hit every position hard and he hadn't. All our LB's are 3 star players. Aside from Silverado at DT, he now is our only 4 star. Blissett will give us to but he just recently got his 4th star.
We just don't have enough depth of talent. I thought we were on our way until this fiasco of a season happened. We are stuck around 30 in the rankings, 5th in the ACC, that's pitiful. We can move up by pulling in Bogel, Summerall, Zepperer, Hasselwood and Elam but those are leaning elsewhere at the moment. Of course anything can change but this may not end up real good for us Wed. Then he will really have to scramble to find players who don't sign. That could really be ugly.

Terrance Sullivan

Herb U are correct it's not looking promising on the recruiting front.

UMike

Looks like Willis is out for the bowl game. Is this old news?

Terrance Sullivan

Yes he is out for Bowl Game my Guess he is out for Senior Bowl as well. Was Playing with Bad Hand last half of season and was advised to let it heal and get ready for Combine.

Herbieibis

Justin Fields may be transferring. Hum! Can't see this dude sitting 2 more years behind their current QB who is a soph.

Terrance Sullivan

Herb. Fromm is leaving after next year dude aint staying for his Senior Year he will enter next years draft. U should know that lol. But not surprised by Fields possibly transferring.

Go Canes!!

Terrence I question if he goes next year. I agree he’s accurate and makes good decisions but he’s never been asked to carry this offense, he’s been more of a complimentary guy in a run first offense. Imo he’s more Aaron Murray than Matthew Stafford.

Either way, Fields would be taking a gigantic risk by staying.

LOL! We all are

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: Herbieibis | December 17, 2018 at 10:52 AM

Absolutely. At most positions you want two 4*s every year, or have a redshirted 3* guy with high potential to pair with him. Blissett & DT is a good example of what I'm talking about. This year, we should have gotten a 4* like Sorrells and the two 3*s Ingraham and Blissett, when they got their 4th * we would have been looking really good with three 4* DTs, 2 to play and 1 to redshirt for next year, meaning next year we just take the top guy we can get, and maybe a guy we can redshirt, someone along the lines of a Jon Ford. Thats how you build some God D@mned depth. It should be this way at every position. Bottom line is, the MR era is over, we are just waiting for the clock to hit zero. When MR is fired, I hope the BoT will hire a GM to make the supporting staff hires, HCs have shown they are too stubborn here and act like Gods because BJ has no idea what hes doing. All hires should go through the GM and every candidate should have a minimum resume.

Sad part is this... at least one more lazy hire on the horizon 😭

When we finally put Pastor out to pasture we'll announce that we're opening up a "national" search... two days later Manny Diaz will be hired from TEMPLE!!! Sound familiar?

Herbieibis

Not so fast with the ending of the Mark Richt era. We still have the bowl game and if we come out and lay an egg, then I might say the end is near but only if the offense looks it's usual self. All these Xtra practices are supposed to make a difference, well let's see.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: WWIN | December 17, 2018 at 02:04 PM

Demarcus Van Dyke, you are the next contestant on Unqualified Hire.

His Majesty The Dude on High

This all started with (hiring his son) not hiring Mark Helfrich. Had we rolled with him at OC this season, we easily could have won more games, had positive momentum, & replaced Diaz with Banda, then promoted Patke to LBs.

His Majesty The Dude on High

From TRick72 on CIS,

"I don’t know if they are the right guys or not but it was definitely a short sighted attempt to save this class. If Richt was a “upper echelon CEO” and he really thought this was the best move, he would have been proactive. He would have released a statement on the Wednesday when it was all but a done deal that Manny was leaving essentially saying “we don’t know if it’s going to happen or not but if it does we have a contingency plan in place”.

Then the moment Manny informs them he’s leaving, he would have announced Banda and Patke were taking over. Instead he has no plan in place, announces they are hiring a National Search Firm, which if true should have been hired on the Monday when Manny interviewed to get a feel of available coaches, then only to panick when some decommitments start rolling in and promotes these guys. I still had hopes CMR could be an effective HC in the role of CEO but effective CEO’s are proactive not reactive. The way he handled this situation, as well as many others this offseason give me little faith he can even be a mediocre CEO."

100% my opinion also.

CaneRock

Yikes...CIS:

"Here is it laid out - OFFENSE could potentially go 4 for 21 on their Top Targets

QB - 0 for 2

1. MJJ: PSU - (Put all our eggs in 1 basket. This will be a theme)
2. Sam Howell: FSU (or UNC) - Stupidly didn't recruit him until the 11th hour (this will be a theme as well)

RB - Potentially 0 for 6 (we'll call it 0 for 3 since we only really targeted the top 3 listed)

1. Marcus Crowley: OSU (Put all our eggs in 1 basket)
2. DJ Williams: Prob ALA/UGA/AUB (Stupidly didn't recruit him until the 11th hour)
3. MAR: AUB - Goofed around for a year by not telling the kid he can play RB
4. Kenny McIntosh: UGA - good enough for them but not Miami
5. Chez Mellusi: CLEM - good enough for them but not Miami
6. Nayquan Wright: UF - good enough for them but not Miami (and openly talks **** about us)

WR - 2 for 3 if we land Haselwood. Dugans luckily didn't get snagged last year by FSU

1. Jadon Haselwood: Miami - maybe the only saving grace on Offense
2. Frank Ladson: CLEM
3. Jeremiah Payton: Miami
4. John Dunmore: PSU/Miami - Stupidly didn't recruit him until the 11th hour
5. TJ Jones: Plan B/C"

CaneRock

Continued:

"TE - 1 for 3 maybe 2 for 3 if we can land Zip

1. Keon Zipperer: UF/Miami - Potentially could get caught with our pants down if this kid is trolling us
2. Jalen Wydermyer: TXA&M
3. Larry Hodges: Miami - not heavily recruited by top programs


OL - 0 for 7. Searles should've been fired mid season

1. Evan Neal: ALA - Put all our eggs in 1 basket
2. Darnell Wright: Staff hasn't even recruited
3. Michael Tarquin: UF - totally dogged by this kid
4. Donte Lucas: FSU/UF - Kid toyed with the staff all year
5. Kingsley Eguakun: UF - totally dogged by this kid. Put all our eggs in 1 basket
6. Darius Washington: MSST - Searles can't recruit
7. Maurice Smith: BC/FSU - Stupidly didn't recruit him until the 11th hour

Leftover Scrubs -
8. Jakai Clark: Miami
9. Zion Nelson: Miami
10. CJ Elmonus: WAKE - picked WAKE over us lol
11. Adam ElGammal: CIN"

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: WWIN | December 17, 2018 at 02:04 PM

Lets see who Manny hires and see if he's watched and learned from Richt. They'll be lower level assistants, but check the resumes. If he does a good job with hires, I'd happily bring him back as HC. Miami cant out Bama Alabama. We dont even need to do that to have a great and competitive program. We are late getting to the spread offense party, and we had THE GUY to hire and passed. I will never get over that. Oregon became a kind of Miami because of that. Our creed or motto should be "Ludere Ieiunium" or "Play Fast." Win, lose or tie Miami plays with speed. Urban Meyer gets that about Florida kids. Dan Mullen also. Helfrich had it at Oregon as the OC. We'll see what Cristobal & Diaz can do, those guys are probably the early favorites.

Go Canes!!

CR that list is pretty misleading. We weren’t actively recruiting a ton of those guys.

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: Go Canes!! | December 17, 2018 at 03:18 PM

Theres nothing misleading at all, it even says we didnt recruit some of those guys. MR got his @ss absolutely handed to him. Hes been caught unprepared, both on & off the field.

His Majesty The Dude on High

There are 27 names listed there and we recruited 24 of them. We gauged their interest, didnt like it enough and dropped contact with them. Only N. Wright, D. Wright & Mellusi can say we didnt recruit them much.

Go Canes!!

It is misleading. Howell, for example, has been hard committed to FSU since April of this year. We reached out after their OC bolted. That’s not stupidly waiting.

Go Canes!!

The guy also says we put all our eggs in one basket with Neal and Tarquin. How is that possible when they both play the same position.

His Majesty The Dude on High

We recruited Howell and got shut down fast. Just because we didnt recruit them for forever, doesnt mean we didnt recruit them. Recruiting just happens fast when the awfense is dogsh*t and they laugh in your face. Maybe "putting all your eggs in one basket" was a poor phrase, especially with those 2, but Miami is so gullible, to think those guys would stick after the way Searels sh*t OL played all year, and MR didnt fire his @ss. Miami's OL offers have been confusing at best, didnt offer Wilson or Fox and they should have been offered and recruited super hard. Smith we didnt offer until way late, and even Kaleb Boateng is better than nothing, Searels doesnt seem to think so, but the 2* App ST kid was, LMFAO. The goal at OL should have bee. 4 to 5 depending on what Neal & Lucas wanted to do. When Searels lost all of his croots a couple of weeks ago, he should have been let go, but nothing, our HC is asleep at the wheel.

Terrance Sullivan

LOL Like Sands through the Hour Glass So are the Canes of Our Lives!

Terrance Sullivan

Interesting Miami since the start of 2015 season Golden last year and Richt Tenure So Far 3 Years Miami is 34-17. In the same 4 Years 2015-18 Oregon is 28-22. Now of course we will have to adjust these numbers in a couple of weeks. But just wanted to lay that out here.

Do u mutherfokas ever give this shit up. It’s a fucking torrential rain fall of negative ‘Jiba-Jaba.’ I mean, ‘Jesus titty fucking Christ.’ U r all a collection of dark miserable minions. And our downfall only feeds your negative energy, your life force.
Even if u end up right, and I admit, most of u have been in the past. U have been able to identify the incompetence of our last 3 bad coaching choices, the misery on the way to Richt’s final curtain call is will be more agonizing than his failure. Imagine been cut continuously with a pen knife on the way to your execution. U will pray for death much sooner from the torture. Well, the torture of your collective negativity is like that.
I mean, how does Richt not deserve more chances on the basis of what he’s done. People he’s brought in, except for his son. Yes we have not lived up to squart. I don’t see wiskey calling for the head of their coach. You r worse than the pollsters, who have a miami bias and r quick to drop us in the polls faster than SEC schools, who loose at the same clip.
Last thing I need to be reading, after a 15 hour shift. WTF!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

Ah the dumbest rare occasion poster has showed up to reveal how little about football he knows.

Sid-tard is slurping harder and on double time heading into the signing day, what a surprise, wait it's GD, who never met a cloud member of the bot, a shit coach or a useless horrible player of football he wouldn't gag on as long as the peter principle overpromoted ticket-distributor AD tells him it's OK to do so first, so that makes perfect sense. What a useless piece of blob nugget he is.

Since nobody said which side of the 10 scale is 'perfect' and which is TS/GD blob dropping at the bottom we'll assume 10 is good and 1 is TS/GD blob droppings in coaching form.

For the tenure: 6.5 with the bowl game moving it up half a point or down depending on which side of the final score they end up on.

For the year: 3.

Larry Fedora and Mike MacIntyre would whip this sorry staff, and by extension program, into shape in an off-season if added as coordinators, that's why the moronic cloud that is the bot and their lying idiot of what passes for an AD in Coral Gables will never pay for them, they're all parsimonious losers who deserve the plague of empty seats at home games in 2019 that's on its way.

Herbieibis

AfriCane,
Dude U need a nap.
The plain truth is and I said this the other day, he made the only decision he could in naming Banda and Patke Co-coordinators. This was only done to save what was left of a sinking class. Can't say at this time if it was the right call or not. Neither has been coordinators so this will definitely be trial by fire. Now if we don't land a couple of these guys that Banda was hard on, then Richt's plan will have backfired in that regard.
Went after 2 TE's hard and will probably get zipped. Summerall has been mostly a Gator lean and they are a package deal.
Why we recruited Hodges for the TE position is beyond me. At 6'1 235.
Same for the Nelson kid, which I have already spoken my piece on that, wtf moment.
So to recap:
We get blanked at RB
We get blanked at QB
We likely get blanked at OT. (I'm not counting Nelson) it will take him at least
2 years to get to 280 to 285.
We need at least 5 DB's and we have 2 and one weighs maybe 160, now he is good but he will have to put on some weight quickly.
If Pink and Quart leave early, then we have a grand total of 4 lbs and Wilder has been out all year with a neck injury. Even affing Huff and Brooks leaves us rail thin.
I think Munoz is a bit of a reach.
Maybe we get lucky and get Hasselwood. Maybe we get lucky and get Bogel and Stevenson. The first 2 we'll have wait until Jan. 5 to find out.
Wed. we will know how bad it is.

Terrance...I hate to tell you but as far as I know RaizeCane, KYCane, NativeCane, Old Skool and I all think you are wrong at giving Richt an approval on this defensive coaching decision. You are standing alone on this one. We will see where it lands next season but there IT is right there.

Oh A 7 Is very Fair. I will amend my score to a 7.75 If we win the Bowl Game he go up to a 8. If we lose the Bowl Game he go down to 7.5. So in 2 weeks Mark Richt will either be a 8 or a 7.5 come December 27, 2018 by 10pm/et. As Far as the Defensive Decisions Big Facts we will see how 2019 turn out. Either Richt will be on a Flaming Hot Seat or A Tepid Seat(Barring Winning the ACC and Making Playoffs only way his seat is not at least tepid next year.

1. 7 overall. We all know the great things he has done to uplift the program. But the offense and punting issues were ridiculous and should have been managed better. Could have pulled it down more but he still has a shot to right the ship. Rating could go to 10 or 4. The stubbornness he has shown would make me put money on 4 if you forced me to bet. But I hate to count a guy out when there are obvious easy fixes for Coastal domination. But the obviousness is the most cause for concern.

2. 7. Experience is my only concern, but every time there is trepidation over THE PILLAGE, they rise. No sense in gettin scared now.

Now I am leaning toward 6 for the first question because of offensive recruiting in 2019. Oh well......

I won't make that bet But I will bet U a Prime Rib Meal at the Titanic this Year in November. Counter Bet if we win the Bowl Game U owe me a Philly cheese steak. If we lose I owe U a Philly cheese steak in Orlando Labor Day Weekend. There will be other bets to come.

A 7 is extremely Fair. I usually grade up so take that for what's it's worth lol.

We couldn't flip Maurice Smith but u can trust good ole FSU not to have tuff luck like us. It amazes me every year how FSU gets some of these dudes out of no where and no matter how pitiful they are.

Well The Herb discovered this bit of info, that Justin Fields will transfer from the Dogs. Last I looked we didn't have a QB for this cycle so Richt needs to xtend his long rod of love. Of course they are linking him as of right now to of course one team being FSU and the other 2 Oaklahoma and Urban St. There was a mention also of LSU and zPenn. St as well.

I look at CMR per season. The first 2 seasons he did pretty good....4 game losing streak in 16, 17 peaked vs ND....best game he has coached at UM then lost to Pitt...bad...Clemson horrible...and Whisky...bad. I am good with a 6.5 those years....had we not fallen so poorly those years I could go more but the losing streaks showed the cracks....7 had he done better.
This year a 5 is a gift....he is a coach who at one time was pretty good....but never great ever. Won SEC but never made a title game....Beamer played for a NC and almost won with 1 player.
5 for promotions; there was no effort to keep manny and thats bad.

CMR is over the hill, out of touch, and way too set in his ways. All bowl jokes aside, he cannot coach on a fairly high level any longer not high like being there every year....he won a couple SEC titles in 14 years...nice but so? That is not a real title....we have 5! and with really good preparation, and not relying on the SWAG some love....we could have 10....walking out there dont win titles...you earn them!
His play calling is horrible, his personnel decisions are bad, he thinks his son is unreal....he sucks, he does not see players realistically, he let an assistant run JT off, recruiting is way way down....5 is a gift.
I respect him as a good moral person...he is that we should all be that good of a person.
He is a bad coach this year and I see it getting worse. I am tired of being disappointed by promise of a coming day....aint happened in 15 years.
Get a real coach who wants to win every game...not someone who makes the BOT and AD happy....get the damn Buanicontis and Bernies off the BOT....they bought the damn positions...well Bernies broke so guess they felt sorry for him..F##k the old rich farts on the BOT who do not know football...get an AD and real coach....and win....or drop to Div 2 or 3....we can win there now should anyway...or drop the game from the school....but do something for the supporters....for a change.
Sorry JMO some of you love CMR and you are just like the BOT...comfortable with average....I coach to develop guys to be better people and players....and to WIN!

"Winning isnt everything, but wanting to win is the only thing"!
"We will never reach perfection, but in chasing it, we can catch excellence"!
"Football is a simple game; blocking and tackling"!

Lombardi....(not CMR!).....who won 5 titles with great moral people from whom he demanded the best!

VA Cane, I don't love CMR, but damn man, you gotta give the man a little more time! Since he's arrived, we've gotten 10 wins, won the Coastal, won a bowl game, went to the Orange Bowl, ALL things we haven't done in almost 15 YEARS!! YES his pc is out of date, and he needs to run the spread more often, and YES we need an OC, and YES we lost games we should've NEVER lost (especially Duke), but we STILL have a VERY talented team, and although we lost some good recruits (we do EVERY year), and if we don't lose jr's to the NFL, we should do well in 19. I'm (hoping) CMR sees how his O ran in the last 2 games opposed to the first 10, and maybe, just maybe he'll make more use of that next season. Now if it doesn't change next year, and same old, same old, then I agree, time to look elsewhere.

VA Cane

Sorry Cola, just JMO.....its not all CMR....its more the BOT...AD....they have let this once proud program....once...flounder the day they did not look for a coach after BD left. I may have even stomached Clappy being interim while trying to find a coach then put him back as OC. However his progress....or regress....followed by Onions, AlPa and now CMRs fluctuations are signs of non commitment and incompetence of the highest degree.
While he has had some highs....the losing streaks, the Clemson game.....and this year he beat some HS teams nobody really good (he has no control over that)losing to wanna bes....it just does not work for me anymore.
Good man...did good job at GA...this aint GA....hell its not even Miami anymore.....just not pleased with it and the attitude of Oh Well Aw Shucks just does not work for me. Respect your thoughts my friend!

ColaCane

I feel your pain VA, I'm just trying to look at the positives. Last major bowl before 16, was the Peach and we got DOG STOMPED by LSU, last win before 16 05 against Nevada for cripes sakes. We beat 13th ranked WV in Russell Bowl, we win 10 games, we win the Coastal, we have no.8 ranked class last yr. Yes we regressed this yr, but if we win Pinstripe, that's going out on a high note, 3 in a row, and 8-5, which is decent, and can build momentum going into 19.

VA Cane

Tru,
I am not as high on you at 7s, but I agree with WWIN and Soup....you do an awesome job and I love reading your posts. It makes me think about things!!
Thanks for your take on Females; you are spot on.
I had a situation last Tgiving where my daughters ex shoved her in front of their daughter for saying her opinion.
Now hes a little bigger than me, and does computers in the Army...he thinks hes tough....but I am old and mean....that is my baby forever. I normally can walk away, but my daughter in front of me.....any woman....I had to act and did much to his displeasure....but he learned something that day big time.
My wife can be very up front.....she will say here mind.....but I have never ever been rude to her much less abuse her or touch her in 26 years...Tru you are a gentleman and a scholar you are a great part of the blog....as are all the people here.
We may disagree and get mad....but we get over it! Thanks to all and hope the holidays are wonderful for all of you!

VA Cane

All I can say Cola is I hope you are right and my opinion is off. The first game of the season set our tone....LSU pretty well dominated us....and others did as well.
I see the big problems in 2/3s of of our game....offense and ST.....we have to correct these factors now....and get the recruiting up to get better.
Hope you are spot on....Merry Christmas my friend!!!!

ColaCane

Me too VA me too! I think our kicking game will get better with the Aussie! Not losing any JR's would also help keep our D dominate. Hopefully we'll get a couple good surprises tomorrow as well. Merry Christmas to you as well!

Herbieibis

The Herb just wants the dude to show some passion and fire. He has lost both and he don't have it anymore step the hell aside.
Was it Bear Bryant said: Winning isn't everything but it sure beats anything that comes in second.
