That's what my tattoo is the Ibis with pipe and I have the U and old English M.

Herbieibis

Cola,
When there is something positive to talk about then I'm sure you will see it on here, eventually!

solar I sure would have liked to see the great teams in black.....can you imagine CP or Edge breaking one, or ER20 ST26 or RM2 or Ray leveling someone...KD to AJ....or Shock......never liked the orange....dark grren was ok....black would have been bad ass!!!!!!!
58 tell our friend GC that VA says hello.....great guy....

solarcane

VA
For sure!

I liked the Orange Jersey and white pants that Barrow's era wore.
I think Russel Stitched them.

The All white Stormtroopers were hard to beat too

Here is a site you guys will like.
I use it for the sign making company for decal design and stickers.

Tons of historic and vintage canes logo related stuff here

howard smoked the pipe..thats why the ibis had the pipe

TruCane81

Sebastian is iconic! When I fell in love with The U in 6th grade it was all about the Ibis logo... we weren't using the U logo.

Sebastian with the pipe was badass and all I really knew about The U!

Same exact story but it was 5th grade for me.

Saw a Canes tank top with Sebastian on it and had to have it. Wide right 1 happened within a month.

Been hooked ever since.

VA Cane

Mark smokes a pipe too....but HS was puffing Sir Walter Raleigh or Apple Tobacco.....CMR hittin the Maui Wowi hard as shit......hell with some coke on it.....or as bad as things have gotten the glass monster....smoking crack and smack....Chasing That Dragon baby!!!!!!!!!!!!

Herbieibis

Need to go back to black shoes. White with orange sux.

TruCane81


We should have known when the plucked off the band aids and took his pipe, a kinder gentler U was right over the horizon

How we played so bad ass in the soft ass 2001 unis is still one of the all time accomplishments in sports to me

What??????????????

You must be a Raiders or Chiefs fan.

I know the older guys are partial to the classic look but ALL our units have been clean.

Only one I wasn’t crazy about was the one with that line across the back when Shannon was hc. I liked it but the line was silly.

mi@mic@ne

the talk is that when practice resumed Rosier was practicing with the 1s ..get ready for a boring ass game

solarcane

Tru,
too me we looked like we were on a down hill ski team in those turn of the century unis.
I guess its what memories you have,
Sean Taylor would look bad ass in any Canes uni I agree there
To me our new/old uniforms are sweet

mi@mic@ne

Any good coach who is a winner would make Williams the starter...watching fiu today and the organization and thinking about where we are not makes me sick

solarcane

I know this sounds crazy but I think Rosier would make a good playbook tutor for Williams. Rosier couldn't make a lot of the plays , but he knew what was supposed to happen, even if he couldn't actually produce the result.

Regarding the uniforms, they keep wanting to reinvent the wheel. Plain and simple is always the best way. No junk all over the jersey. Look at Notre Dame, no logos, no names, just their number. But, if you don't have the horses, as in the Four Horsemen, it makes for a very long season. 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. Just staying home with no snow!!! PISS.

Got to love it; Just Win Baby.....get back to greatness....
Keith Richards had an LP....talk Is Cheap....so true....all this talk about getting back for 15 years....way overdue....its time to take the gloves off!!!!
Thanks ML!!!

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

I think Kingsbury will be a good OC at USC....more to his persona than HC. He was below 500 as HC, but damn he put some #s up!!!!
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!!!!!!

solarcane

Lady Canes 11-2 no mention
Football 7-5 99% percent mention, of which 80% is negative sigh

Agreed!!!

His Majesty The Dude on High

SOUP,

my post with a link keeps getting ate.

Herbieibis

Most recruiting services rated our class a D. One word PITIFUL!

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.

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

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

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 .

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!!!!!

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!!!!

solarcane

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

His Majesty The Dude on High

The Ibis is more swaggy, The U is cleaner, more iconic imo.

solarcane

Good Luck VA bring it!

I show this to my guys a lot....they are amazed....and thats how they play....all out no prisoners!!!!
Got to love it!!!!

I already had it in my mind that Rosier was gone, the thought of him starting the bowl game makes me want to vomit. 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

orange 'n green in the vein

They were ugly as hell and it's been so long ago I'll forgive you forgetting that they were pissed about the BCS computer polls screwing them out of the championship game appearance, but this is not some arcane mystery as to how it was done.

Posted by: solarcane | December 22, 2018 at 11:19 AM

There IT is right there.

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..

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

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.

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.

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....

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.....

mi@mic@ne

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

mi@mic@ne

I think it was mostly crushed not paste

Not to complicated... I've mastered it now lol... nah you're right when it comes to hand signs lol.

Posted by: His Majesty The Dude on High | December 22, 2018 at 11:33 AM

You said it all right here!

Were we born on swag or being clean? You have your answer.

Do we need to get our swagger back or be clean?

WWIN

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

Maybe a future Canespace article title?

nemo2002

Can't we all get along?

How about a compromise solution to the great Turnover Chain dispute?

Maybe we should keep the big Sebastian but add a glitzy U on a gold chain around his neck?

Don't ask me if I'm clean dawg, WINN said SWAG, and we ain't SWAGGIN
