Go Canes!!

Dee Jay preaching.

Love that kid.

You know how much I respect you, but this blasphemous statement implying Chuck Norris needs a bodyguard takes you down a notch.

Posted by: Go Canes!! | December 20, 2018 at 10:03 PM


Somebody had to rescue him from Bruce Lee.

TruCane81

One week to get it together.

All eyes on U.

Go Canes!!

CMR hamstrung them with awful play calling, our QBs were terrible and a ton of fans gave up on them. But imo this team never quit.

Expect them to come out and play hard. Hopefully Richt, Perry and our fans come through for the rest of them.

TonyCane

Steve Blackman would take down both Bruce and Chuck.

Herbieibis

U mean the defense never gave up!

I believe Henry Hogshead was the only verified 10 star high school recruit.
He went on to become Chuck Norris bodyguard.

There IT is right there.

Chuck Norris was pall bearer for Bruce Lee in real life, true respect

Henry Hogshead gets Cristmas Cards from his pal Carlos Norris, known to many as Chuck.

Wow. That film is actually older than Mark's offense. Love the telegraphed music, useless zooms and cutaways to a cat watching the fight.

Nice tweet from Jarren Williams @ Jarren2Williams

“When it comes down to it I’ll always choose my brothers 💯”

Looking at the list of the top recruits in Florida. Although I don't necessarily agree with some of the rankings, I think overall it is painfully obvious that the Canes lost many of the important recruiting battles.

There is a little bit of good news in that there are still some very good recruits left on the list. Right now, the Canes just simply need to perform well in the Bowl game, then hit the recruiting trail hard leading up to NSD.

The top remaining recruits are really only looking at 5-8 other Big Five programs. Alabama, Clemson, Georgia and the other 3-5 other Big Five programs that came into Florida, cherry picked top recruits and really wiped the floor with us so far have pretty much filled their classes during early signing period. The Canes should be in a good position to win some of the remaining recruiting battles. If they do, it will be a good class.

Williams, lingard, Hightower, cam and Pope should of played a lot more than they did this year! This is worrisome as obviously richt doesn’t play the playmakers/gamebreakers that should be in there (not Williams of course because we don’t know but how can we When the idiot HC would rather put rozier back in rather than Williams)

raizecane

When players say the cold weather isn't a factor and that some hope it snows is what I like to call .....a "FOS" moment.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: AeroCane | December 21, 2018 at 09:22 AM

You post this a lot. I’m honestly curious what you base it on. Homer and DJ were among the ACC leaders in yards per carry and to me Pope didn’t show much all season when he got on the field.


http://www.espn.com/college-football/conferences/statistics/player/_/stat/rushing/sort/yardsPerRushAttempt/id/1

VA Cane

Pretty good ypc by both....so if you can run the ball, but cannot beat people, what does that say?

It says your play caller, OC, and HC really do not have a clue how to win or even more important, teach and inspire people to want to win....in short...APATHY!!!
The head coach does not really care about winning or losing...mellow guy no intensity at all...does not matter, collect a check, and put your son in the position to be next...BUT....you got to win.....good man average coach has program headed in the wrong direction ..not working per his plans.

Herbieibis

Still 10 or so guys are verbals that haven't signed yet or maybe some are silent until all-star games. About the same amount undecided. The one player I hated losing and that we shouldn't have lost to begin with is Ingrahm. Sorrells is sitting there and for some reason we haven't been hard on this kid. You can't tell me we couldn't find one O-line in the entire state as good or better than Nelson. With his weight they just need to put him at DE. Started late playing football and a former basketball player who needs 3 redshirt years to get to 300 and I mean good weight, with a proper diet.

VA Cane

I would also say both backs gave a lot of effort after first hit, because the OL was so up and down.....never consistent. We had a somewhat lazy out of shape line....slow shuffle the feet never pick them up, jog to blocks, rarely down field blocking....this is on them to some point, but even more the position coach....who is not good....and further up the ladder the OC and HC whose job is to implement an attack offense not a floundering offense.....

VA Cane

You can't tell me we couldn't find one O-line in the entire state as good or better than Nelson.
This is a major concern for the O......throw it all over run it north south.....but you cannot do that without an OL.....and a good solid in shape muscular quick (notice I said quick) aggressive OL has not been here in a long time......one of my major issues....so important...

VA Cane

I can remember seeing KD and Co trot out on the field and think here we go attack time
....yes they were incredible athletes superior to what we field now....I remember being on the field at VT during warm ups....in the shadows of McKinney and Gonzalez warming up....huge guys....but you knew that team in all 3 phases were going to attack you beat you down....half the battle is the execution, effort and plan..

Now when the O trots out you shudder....same stuff every time...no blocking....poor QB execution and decisions...you know its gonna be a long day....and then you got to kick.....what a contrast...and its been the last 4 HCs and however many ADs they share it..and it trickles down to where the kids get the same attitude...Apathy .....this is not how you play football and we have to take a stand not sit back and accept it....

Go Canes!!

Agree with you VA. I

mo outside of Rosier it wasn't so much the players on the field as it was the position CMR put them in with some seriously conservative and unimaginative playcalling.

mi@mic@ne

The d line must be taught technique...the oline must learn technique...if they are not going back and forth in practice winning some and losing some..but the technique has been mastered then they are not ready to be on the field. Football is a discipline sport. you do the technique over and over again until it you train your fast twitch muscles the technique is what do fall back on when you are fighting to win the personal battle. The o is not winning the personal battles because they are not sure what to do on a play.....each player should know the best way to dominate their battle because they are consistent in doing their technique. football is a discipline ..and then a matter of imposing your will. Thats why we are not winning.

AeroCane

Go - I don’t think you get it - just cause dee jay and Homer were good doesn’t mean they were more explosive, gamebreakers like these other 2. We needed more explosion on offense and these guys would of helped - nothing against a great guy DeeJay and homer but the most explosive best players should be playing
As for Pope - freaking Mark Richt never gave him a chance to get into a rhythm; instead he played cager, who dropped about every other pass thrown to him and always looked like he could care less, and Wiggins, who also dropped many a catchable ball!
You’ve got to play the best guys to give you a chance to score! Richt just acts and produces like he just doesn’t understand that the game is about scoring points- jmo

mi@mic@ne

You cannot trust in your talent and speed..you can only trust in your practice..having 600 catches in practice or throwing 200 passes a day...these guys play like they are not doing their craft over and over again until it becomes second nature...

mi@mic@ne

no excuses..the only reason that we are losing is because we have not been disciplined in practice ..period...thats why i like the spread or the old way were we had 7 run plays and 10 pass plays...one person who is unsure of his responsibility and the play will not work...we cannot go to the next level until everyone is on the same page on every play...

mi@mic@ne

if they are not enjoying the repetition they need to change their major to home economics or something...if your a Cane you eat and drink football...

mi@mic@ne

dont tell me it cant be done...im running 4.5 miles on the elliptical machine in 30 min. thats less than 7 min miles...and im an old man...pain my ass

AeroCane

Miami
Great on the workout
I enjoy the rowing machine as well
And to respond to all your comments: it all starts with richt! The kids came in as top high school recruits (all the top schools wanted them) and the only thing that changed was the coaching and scheme - ie not developing them properly

Go Canes!!

Posted by: AeroCane | December 21, 2018 at 10:29 AM

I think perhaps you don’t get it.

At Georgia he had Todd Gurley, Nick Chubb and knowshon Moreno lead his teams in rushing as true freshmen. Imo if Lingard and Pope deserved more playing time they’d have gotten it.

The players on the field weren’t the issue, the play calls were.

CoCane

Pump the brakes!

I don't care what you on a elliptical. If 18-23 year old, 200-300 lb men push your shit in for a 2 hour practice. You'll have more pain then just your azz.

Don't let poking your chest out on a blog lead your mind to delusions that manifest into comments 🤨

mi@mic@ne

we failed to do the simple things like catching the ball, hitting the receivers when they are open...i dont blame the players for not being ready to play...the coach must make sure the player is doing the simple things...we missed at least 14 points a game from dropping wide open fly pass or the qb did not hit the receiver...when you dont connect on those passes then it emboldens the defense...our passing discipline was worse than pop warner. We score on quick plays and we change the momentum...

mi@mic@ne

pain is only in a persons mind...ive played the game all my life...it is very painful to run at a 6 40 mile pace..especially when you are old...i used to run a 12 min mile every other day...when jj was coaching we beat the crap out of our opponent...they were begging for the game to get over in the fourth q...the most dominate teams u has ever had. ..these guys dont know that level.

mi@mic@ne

Instead of picking the coach with that mentality in butch we pic the guy from fswho....if JJ would have stayed at the U ...we would have pounded FSwho..we kicked their ass the JJs last year...he was just getting started when he went to dallas...we get Richt a Bowden loser.

mi@mic@ne

just want to say when i complain im not doing it like most people...arm chair qbs..im pushing my limits too...lmao

VA Cane

I think that along with the play calling, some poor coaching, and apathy all around.... the biggest problem is the execution of the fundamentals.
Just because you were a 4 or 5 star guy in HS, ran a 4.4, were HS AA, were in the papers, or won state titles does not mean you are doing it right. When you are a better athlete you tend to cut corners. You can get by against weaker less talented opponents. So you get to college and think it still works. All of a sudden you are playing a Bama, Clemson, OSU, OK, MI, ND...or other sound teams....or maybe UVA, Duke, BC,GT...or LSU... you got that U on your hat and you think you are now empowered you are just better and can use talent...fuk executing fundamentals!...you are the shit....you are KD11, Andre J., Edge, Mount McKinney, Ray, J Vilma, Tez, Ed R, ST26, I mean keep naming them....and you aint Bro!!!!
and you aint HS JJ or even DE or Butch or the great ones that have been here....you cannot get the great talent....much less coach it!!!
So you don't teach it they do not execute it.....and you get by sometimes....against cupcakes....but teams better prepared, with a plan....and who execute beat yo AZZ!
Same with college to the NFL...guys get on that level and do not have the talent combined with the fundamentals and cannot make it....and when they get there.....they make so much $ and are such jerks they cannot be coached...they know better!!!

This program has its collective head up its AZZ!!! The BOT and AD are happy to be 7-5, no issues, graduate everyone, and play in a Mini Me Trojan Rubber Bowl!

The coaches for the most part do not teach fundamentals, do not get into the practices, do not demand execution, are happy getting paid, and are ok with it....just play the 4 and 5 stars!!

The kids are good kids who come here with a swollen head and wear U gear.....they are not taught to correct their flaws, taught new attitudes, held accountable, and they get to where its ok...Im not Ray or KD or ST...but I'm good I am at the U!!!!

Head up AZZ people....unaware and do not care....everything is lovely warm fuzzy!!!!

I just cannot coach that way.....I know I aint HS or JJ....but 41 years I have seen some things, coached in sandlot, HS and college....and sent a ton to college and some to NFL...helped fundamentals drilled into them....never had a losing season and won a lot of titles due to execution fundamentals accountability and coaching the guys over and over til they get it right and that you do football...family...job...life one way...the right way...give it all and learn something!!!!
JMO

mi@mic@ne

Mini Me Trojan Rubber Bowl...lmao...i was in the ob when we where dominating... this is us taking the ky jelly and getting up the ying yang...its a joke

mi@mic@ne

Never saw a jj butch coach team in confusion or loafing...when you got into the ob you knew the beat down was coming and the fourth q was gonna be like an arm wrestler begging to leave the match

AeroCane

I guess I didn’t make my point clear - with the guys I mentioned above you’d have to be an idiot to not think we would of had a better chance of winning vs the guys who did play
It’s effing as simple as that - who gives us the better chance if scoring and winning?

mi@mic@ne

Richt went through 4 loses and did not play a qb who could pass or bring in a back and receivers who had the talent to take it to the house. They should have been ready to step in..

AeroCane

Same bs coach, same bs play calling and I bet we win at least 2 of 4 during our skid with the above playing

VA Cane

Is anybody going to NYC to see the game?
I grew up there as a kid as Dad was in FBI.....little far for me....if I thought it really mattered.....i would....but its just a minor bowl....much rather be paying 12 29....how about you?
I WOULD go to a game like that......just been so long for us

TonyCane

If the stories out there are true, looks like we will be seeing one last blaze of glory for Malik Rozier.

mi@mic@ne

The rumor mill is saying Nkosi Perry Failed a drug test and will be suspended. Does anyone know if this is true? Most Richt thing to do would be to start Rosier over Williams on top of the possibility of him transferring lol

if he plays rosier i wont watch much of the game

Go Canes!!

Posted by: TonyCane | December 21, 2018 at 12:34 PM

Don’t know if you chose to use the word blaze there Tony, but it pretty funny either way. If it is true I hope William gets to start.

im reading that Perry has worn out his stay ...too many problems...if this is true Richt is running a circus...butch is beating toledo

VA Cane

Thanks solar I love that you are back here....you are a Cane who really executes fundamentals!!!!!

I try not to be harsh....but try to be fair....it has been a tough 15 years....I thought maybe last year we were not back....but progressing nicely....but this year it really took a U turn...no pun there...we are still irrelevant and nowhere near back....I say 15 years.....but 03 we were 11-2 not bad 04 05 9-3...slipping....06 7-6.....the curse of stomping on the Ville logo....still the teams from 03 on were never really challenging anybody.....bad football that has been very iffy since then....Ok all 4 Horsemen of the Miami Apocalypse have won 62.3% of their games....iffy is a nice word....thats not our standard at all!!!

AeroCane

If I’m Blake James and Perry is suspenses, If Weldon and Williams don’t see 90% of the offensive plays, I fire richt after the game win or lose (and yes I’m being kind and allowing rosier a series or 2 max)

Remember when Toledo was 20 points up on us? Butch been at fiu one year and he score 35 points. We can't keep our qb recruits out of trouble. One thing I saw is fiu is more organized than we are They moved the ball in all 4 qs

mi@mic@me.

2years

mi@mic@me.

I would bring Butch back before it gets out of hand. It's so obvious fiu has better assistants.

ColaCane

Wow since it looks as though NO ONE really wants to say ANYTHING positive about the team or their upcoming game, guess I will!. Williams is staying, that's a HUGE POSITIVE, we're going to land some of the guys still unsigned, that's a HUGE POSITIVE, we STILL have a GREAT team (as long as CMR keeps us in the spread), that's a HUGE POSITIVE! Not sure if Perry's going to be able to play, so that's not good, but other than that, we look pretty damn GOOD! GO CANES!!!

AeroCane

Cola
Keep being positive!! Not a bad thing!

Herbieibis

Said it earlier about this prick Perry. Not serious. Didn't know the play book last year. Still confused this year. This is combination of the mild manner Richy and Perry and his wanna be gangster no attitude.

BigWindyCane

This season, the new Sebastian turnover chain was nice, but I hope the Canes coaches Banda/Patke bring back the original “U” turnover chain next year. The original turnover chain design was my favorite, and all the turnover chain t-shirts look better with the original design.

I am curious if anyone else feels this way, or is it just me?

BigWindyCane

Perry definitely acts like a knucklehead. When a knucklehead leads your team, your team will make knucklehead plays. The only way the fans will look past those silly antics is if Perry wins games and plays at a high level.

Right now, Perry isn’t winning or playing well, so Weldon and Williams need to stay prepared because the coach and fans may lose patience with Perry.

solarcane

I'm with the original chain
Everybody in the country knows what the U signified.
I got friends here that asked why we had a duck on the chain

Windy,
Johnny Manziel was the last true knucklehead that could turn disastrous plays into big gains.

Baker Mayfield put the effort into being a knucklehead, but he didnt have the passion for fkingup up that Johnny Football was blessed with.

VA Cane

At one time I thought Perry was going to be really good. When he signed his tapes looked good.
Like I said you get to D1 and start playing against much better competition instead of nerds, geeks, dorks,dweebs, posers, knuckleheads, pretty boys, and wanna bes......its different.
When I played in college 76 and 77 it was still the same....better players. I had much better skills and fundamentals, but guys were already getting bigger and stronger...lot of roids around. Still I held my own for 2 years played a lot of good ball and many guys bigger than me were shocked I could play! Smarter...fundamentals....worked harder!

Perry obviously played against such folks I listed. He has not shown me a whole lot.....and that dread head of his is way up his AZZ... cause he's got Shat in his ears. Dont know plays or playbook....cannot hit an open guy....he just wants to go home and say he is at Da U!!! Rather get on social media with $....cool....show ya boys you a Poser!!! not a QB!!! Not willing to work.....no use for him cant win with him..TY Mike Singletary!

Now he has no OC or QB coach that knows much either....and his HC cannot call plays at all. So to me it is player and coaches failing....he just does not have it to play big time D1 ball....move to the next QB....he has had his chances! JMO

OK ColaCane, I'm going to join you and acknowledge that there are SOME positives coming out of Coral Gables. I'm pleased about Jalen Williams staying, for sure! Also, we MIGHT sneak in and get some late, "leftover" talent from the early signees to swing our way. However, CMR has GOT to move our 'O' into the 21st century... give Williams a chance to play and be evaluated... and use the spread with some PRE-SNAP motion... and institute it NOW!

Let's Go CANES!

Put me down for the "original" U Turnover Chain...

Dude, TruCane and RoachCane are down for the original iconic 1.0 turnover chain and WWIN likes 2.0.

When I think of the turnover chain, I always think of the original iconic 1.0 chain. 6 1/2 pound,10 karat Cuban link chain with a blinged out U. I love it. The coaches probably won’t go back to it, but that is the iconic chain that changed college football last season
