Robin Roberts, she was too
talented for ESPN before they blew up

She's making a pretty good living being the main face of Good Morning America...
Very smart was really good on ESPN, good now and a survivor....I am not crazy about the alternative lifestyle she choses, but thats her biz and her choice.

It's the time of the season
When love runs high
In this time, give it to me easy
And let me try with pleasured hands

To take you in the sun to promised lands
To show you every one
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
Who's your daddy?
Is he rich like me?
Has he taken any time
To show you what you need to live?

Tell it to me slowly
Tell you what I really want to know
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
Who's your daddy?
Is he rich like me?
Has he taken any time
To show you what you need to live?

Tell it to me slowly
Tell you what I really want to know
It's the time of the season for loving

ESPN sucks now. Sportscenter is unwatchable and they took all the teeth out of First Take.

ESPN went to crap after Stuart Scott died.

Keith Olbermann was good, and I like Kellerman.

Herbieibis

I liked Lisa Kearney. She had like a radio DJ's voice but ESPN got rid of her and they have Tony what ever her name is on in the mornings while first take is on. She is the worst. I do like Laura Rutledge, now she is good.

Yes sir! FSU hires Briles while we hire two guys that have never called plays or been a DC

WWIN

Here's my final say on this...

Women aren't allowed to play in the nfl so why should they be commentating on it? Makes no sense to me

WWIN

I wish someone were forcing women on me...

I'd take it too long as it's not sports related! Lol

WWIN

Posted by: CGNC | December 23, 2018 at 10:31 AM

No... it's clearly an agenda now to make sure a woman is involved on EVERY sports show... that's forcing! They are now hiring women just to make sure a woman is on the show!

And it's still discriminating to women... they are only hiring women that look a certain way

His Majesty The Dude on High

Posted by: TruCane81 | December 23, 2018 at 04:41 PM

Sometimes I think the negativity towards women in sports is just a knee jerk reaction towards forced diversity. It seems like "liberalism" for lack of a better word, has an agenda to force compliance... and that in itself is a turn off. Idk, this is a hard topic to explain because I'm an open minded guy that has no problem with any people doing anything they want, but even I dont like it when you tell me I have to feel a certain way about something or I will feel the wrath of social judgement. Kind of makes me want to be the contrarian. Flip side is, I think our "leaders" want us to feel that way on either side, so that we dont realize both sides are robbing Labor blind.

agree, however it does seem like (and I could be 100% wrong) a contrived attempt to force women into the game in some way... not always because there are women commentators in sports that I do respect, but many times it seems contrived.

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | December 23, 2018 at 01:16 PM

Yep. Especially in football.

Some of the basketball announcers do ok.

What gets me is the chicks trying to do the male sportscaster voice. It sucks and completely throws off the game experience.

One day they will find a woman comfortable in her own skin with a unique style.

Hopefully, they won’t try to force her to sound like a dude because that just makes it worse. Has the exact opposite effect they are seeking.

Women are good at what they do. They often run into problems competing because they forget that,

since 2002 we have chosen coaches who will not change and end up losing bad and being fired..another goldilox

Miami - correct - why we find the most stubborn coaches and it ultimately costs them their jobs! Let’s hope this is richts last game! (We can hope, can’t we?)

NFL is becoming like basketball- way too many penalties and most are bs! They need to just turn it into touch at this rate. What a joke

solarcane

I enjoy former female college softball player's commentating on their sport.
They are refreshing.

Women that commentate on some sports feel the need to make every comment too hip. They suffer from the Scott Van Pelt syndrome.

If every announcer handled their job like Kenny Mayne and added a little slapstick and self degrading humor I would watch stuff with the volume up again. Jmo

I think this is definitely some of the story. I think the Banda/Patke thing is a fireable offense, along with not hiring Helfrich. We are counting down the end of the clock for Richt. 6-6 is coming, the question becomes how to hire another HC thats going to be given full accountability to be the GM also? Cristobal can croot, but will he make smart staff hires from places with a track record of doing things well? Will he pick their minds? OKSt OC as our OC? LSU 2ndary Coach as our DC?

Beth Mowns is terrible, so is ESPN. They think they have skirts for every sport they do. Nothing worse than Windy Nix sticking her nose into a football conversation and actually acting like she knows what she is talking about. Rachel Nichols is another chick that thinks she is a basket ball guru. She sux. Now Jessica Mendoza at least played softball so I can respect her opinion.

A question or two to the group

Did YouTuber Captain Disillusioned
graduate from University of Miami film school?

Does he live in Ft Lauderdale?

Am I the only person on Canespace that has ever heard of him?

This year's defense wasn't one of the best because we didn't face any good offensive teams... we probably didn't face one good QB all year

Sorry for double post. Nyc subway wi-if

I’m just not going to agree with all u negative talking heads about your opinion of CMR or our football program at this point right now. A lot of u r hell bent on criticizing everything we do, period. We change QBs in the game, u all cry about his decision. It’s done a lot in CFB. Alabama does it, crickets!
So let’s talk about stuff we can really talk about: I say this year’s defense is one of our best of all time. Who agrees? And if u disagree, which ones were better & y, in your opinion?

If Williams isn't ready now what makes them think he will be next year? This bowl game is about next year and Williams needs to get that chance. Assuming Perry isn't starting of course

Posted by: UMike | December 22, 2018 at 12:32 PM

Just because Williams isn't playing does NOT mean he isn't ready! What exactly would he need to do to get ready compared to the other QB's? And don't mention learning 4 plays lol!

When Cam Davis and Lingard wasn't playing, did that mean they wasn't ready or that the staff just wanted to play Homer and Dallas more?

PT does NOT always equate to the best players playing

I dont think the bongs are like the ones they use now...but most of the smokers rolled.

VA Cane

Really...no bongs huh?
There were head shops all over Bburg and Radford....right downtown...pipes papers bongs blacklight posters LPs 8 tracks cassettes hippy clothes.....i remember em back in 71 when I was 12 13....everywhere in SW VA.....lot of weed grown in the wild even then....and we did our share of growing.....it was so rural and remote it was EZ.....and with VT and Radford College right there.....so many college kids from all over the US there was a big market and lots of supply....those were the days.....

VA Cane

I have been a fan of the American writer H P Lovecraft since about 69 or 70....very scary... scarier than Poe.
He wrote some incredible stories I use for my teaching on the field. I tell my guys you got to play like Rohan....at "The Mountains of Madness"...we speak of Rohans style often....I call my defenders "The Haunters of the Dark"....they are into that concept of all out play.
One of my parents told me he saw the SB coach of our opponent at the mall....who said he could not understand why we are playing in the tournament....wasn't all the SB wins enough for me?....My guys just love football and playing for me....I am good to my guys.
Now I do love the big hits and they thrill me....but I am not a screamer or yeller who embarrasses my guys....great plays I love....but mistakes are not a time to embarrass a kid or yell....it is a teaching moment a way to work with the player and the team and we all learn....cause we all fail and fall short....and me most of all since i am the oldest kid....

mi@mic@ne

There were no bongs back in 75...the stoners would smoke the pot like a cigarette. It was called a reefer...this is coming from a guy who has never been drunk.

mi@mic@ne

I got a story..back in the day we used to play a Ransom everglades. The field was built on of the end zones having the ocean behind the goal post. Every time you kick a extra point the ball would sail into the ocean..lol Well the year we went 10 and 0 we played them on their field. The school was in an upper class neighborhood off old cutler. We beat their ass. One of the reason was the entire team had a strong smell of reefer smoke...lmao.

VA Cane

I have an FBI source friend of my Dads who is sure the fog is from a Tokemaster II filled with Maui Wowi....from the head smoker CMR himself!!!!!!!

mi@mic@ne

We gotta understand...the U is royalty like the kings in the middle east guarding the oil. As long as our bot is scared of the big colleges who threaten us every time we beat their ass then we will continue giving them a road to cherry picking our back yard. They dont want to respect our control over the oil! The bot has been making the safe pics since 2002. Its time to put on the big boy pants and get back into being relevant. Time to bring Butch back..

Year in year out best looking uniforms to me

1 Auburn

2 LSU

3 Miami

Worst looking year in year out

1.Whatever Oregon is wearing that day

2. Syracuse in all orange

VA Cane

LOL solar.....is it fog, smog.....or bong/pipe smoke?
Whatever it is its very confused and convoluted......and we are lost in it!!!!

VA Cane

I do not fear a bird with a cap....I do fear Rohan Marley steaming at me wearing #2 with the energy of all Hell following him knowing its gonna be a helmet to helmet shoulder pad knockout punch....and intended to be just that with no apology no hand to help up and knowing its coming again next down.....I am going to find a different path to steer around that mad man!!!
thats what the smoke, the U emblem, and the rep that those teams were coming to get you hit you hurt you and knock your ass out if possible!!!
Thats this game....
I saw Rohan hit a back and Ray at VT one time....right in front of me and Dad on the West sideline....Rohan knocked the back out....and Ray had to be helped up.....never seen anything like it from that guy....my personal hero!!!!
Now that would be a logo....Rohan Knockout of anybody in the way!!!!

We are playing in a Holiday Bowl here again. The best 8 teams play in a 2 quarter game for all the marbles....tournament style....theres some good teams but i feel very good....we are healthy and hungry.....talking about Rohan got me going for practice today!!!!!

mi@mic@ne

I must put this in concrete concepts. When we fired Godiloxs i was saying that we should hire Butch because he was interviewing for the job and he recruited the greatest team in the history of college football. So when we hired corch, I was puzzled at the least with a hope that being at the U would give him an advantage. And then when I saw that FIU hired Butch, i thought that this was gonna expose the terrible decisions made by the bot. Then I was watching FIU yesterday and saw a much more organized football team than the U. He was proving that my suspicions that the bot made a terrible decision was coming true. I just hope that it will all work out and we will get a coach who can recruit like the old days..if not butch .

solarcane

VA,
We used to run out through the smoke, now we run out through the fog

VA Cane

I never was a fan of the Ibis.....a goofy bird with a pipe or without...a sailor cap... mascot ugh....or flashy logo....just that U was what mattered....and the smoke in the OB....the teams coming through the smoke since 2003 are not worthy of it....even the TO chain is a bit much for me....when you have to have that to get inspired to play football or be rewarded you haver missed the boat...titles are THE reward JMO as a player and coach...I would give my life for just the U logo, the smoke, the OB and the grit and will of those teams....it means more to me than anything ever at the U..
I have always had just dark colors at my schools...dark maroon, dark green, black..I asked no mascots please...I really do not want cheerleaders but I do not want to be unfair to the young ladies...man for me its focus fundamentals execution teamwork excellence....and championships....thats how I was taught in HS winning 2 states, and thats how I have coached for 41 years....to me it just makes more sense....and it works....no put down....its what works for us and our goals. JMO!!!
Merry Christmas!!!

solarcane

I would take the ibis over the U also. That said throwing up an ibis hand sign could be pretty complicated.

Do you mimic that shadow puppet bird with flapping wings ala wu tang gang?

When fans go to extremes with the logo to hand gesture exercise it gets pretty crazy.

Take Virginia Tech for instance, the first time I saw them throw up the two handed VT It looked like an arthritis convention sitting in the stands.

If you get that great O, and can have a real D instead of the crappy Big 12 Ds...a D like ours....and develop a great ST program....you can win....alot of games and titles....JMO....wake up CMR clock ticking, banners being made....plane getting tuned since the 12-0 bus is broke down bad after a serious accident!!!!!!

WWIN

Going from the ICONIC IBIS to the U was just another attempt by the University to clean up their image. They went from the ibis with the bandage and pipe... to one without neither one... to one that was half ibis half hurricane... to now just the U.

We grew up on the IBIS not the U!

#BringBackTheIbisAndButchWhileWeAreHere

VA Cane

My point is that talented players are all we need, with the best coach showing them the way. We lack in both, but especially in the coaching. So many mistakes have been made. I'd rather have some of our greatest come back, and show the players the U greatness. What the hell. Can't have wimpy coaches, that are not up to the U caliber.
Time for more coffee. WHY IS IT THAT IT IS SO DIFFICULT FOR THE BOT's TO GET IT RIGHT?
Merry Christmas to all of my buddies at Canespace.

Got to love it; Just Win Baby.....get back to greatness....
