Not a big basketball guy; I despise the NBA....
but watching 30 for 30 Survive and Advance Jim Valvano and the 83 NCSU team....very moving and incredible at the same time. My old coach is struggling now and it reminds me of him. I do speak to him once a week....hes my guy got most of my game from him....certainly his attitude about winning!
Hard to believe it was 35 years ago.....I remember i was at some of my friends place big old cold house...about 20 of us....drinking and partying....and what a game!!!
Merry Christmas to each of you!!!!

CoCane

Bah humbug! 🤬

Harry Miller...what is the web site for your company again? My wife wants to look around at building a "country home" in the mountains of Tennessee in the next 2 years or so.

Merry Christmas 86! Tell your lovely wife hello.

Merry Christmas Legion!

My website is lindal.com/executive Take a look you will love them.

I sure hope we have a new coach by the time you build.

UMike

SOUP, when you make that move to the mountains give me a shout, I will be close by

raizecane

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas / Holiday. I am very lucky this year as both of my kids were home so I am blessed.

Soup, wishing you an early birthday shoutout. I will have a drink for you and for my dad who also celebrated his birthday on the 26th and passed in 2012. Bottoms up baby....

IraqiCane

Merry Christmas everyone 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

SOUP

Love all the peeps here more that U could know.

UMike...can you tell me where in Eastern or Northeastern TN you would recommend to live, play, hike, kayak, work and retire?

DallasTX Cane

SOUP: May be too far north for you but Charlottesville VA is a wonderful town.

SOUP

But Harry what is the cost from basic to Luxury?

https://lindal.com/

SOUP

No VA is OUT. State income tax.

SOUP

I want no State income tax.

Low property taxes.

Safety and security.

And SPACE, woods and mountains.

mi@mic@me.

You can't beat sc on taxes. Fuel is 1.78. There are no road tolls and then mountains here in Greenville blocks all the bad weather that Tn gets.

mi@mic@me.

The low taxes

DallasTX Cane

Thought U we’re talking vacation home not relocation. Totally agree on the income tax (love ya TX!). But if your earned income can be dramatically reduced, then U will want to consider property & sales taxes.

Happy birthday Tom

When you start your mountain home search let me know. I'm very familiar with eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina and western SC.

AeroCane

Happy birthday Tom!
We vacation in cashiers and highlands NC and love it but I know the weather can be bad sometimes

UMike

SOUP, I'm not familiar with the whole state, but around Chattanooga there is plenty of trails and rivers etc. It is truly an outdoor place. Plenty of country and mountains in all directions. Look up some articles on Chattanooga and it's surrounding areas. The Cumberland Trail comes through here, we are a couple hours drive to the Smokies and trails there.

UMike

We also have the Ocoee river within a 30 mins drive. Miami away games are a lot closer too lol

Old Skool

Chattanooga is also home to the International Towing and Recovery Museum and Hall of Fame.

Can't wait to hear the mixtape CMR will put together to get the offense focused for the game: Welcome to the Jungle, Brilliant Disguise, Man in the Mirror, Who's that Girl, Alone and I Wanna Dance with Somebody.,

UMike

Happy Birthday 86! And many more!!!

Go Canes!!

You should move to Central Florida

Go Canes!!

Minus the mountains, it sounds like the perfect place for you.

orange 'n green in the vein

Happy birthday Tom and the real blog OG, CoCane as well, don't forget my favorite Horsemen of the Hurricane football apocalypse or you'll be sorry and on next years naughty list!

Terrance Sullivan

Happy birthday Soup. Party like a Rock Star.

Happy birthday Mr. P!

Thanks OGV

Just walking through the house, glanced at the tv and what do I see. Canes and Badgers standing at the podium of the NYSE clapping while the bell is ringing.

Probably wouldn’t have noticed if it weren’t for the U up on the wall

So Rosier gets the start,SMFH

SOUP

I LOVE North Carolina and am more familiar with it BUT North Carolina has a State income tax, Tenn does not. I plan on doing real estate wherever I move to about age 65-70 depending on my health and wealth. So I have between 10-15 years of work left in me. Unless WW III or the Apocalypse comes first!

roachcane77

UGH! It's like CMR is INTENTIONALLY being stubborn to prove he's in charge and HIS way will work.

We're doomed...

Go Canes!!

He says Perry isn't suspended, but there is no way Perry isn't suspended.

Posted by: SOUP | December 26, 2018 at 01:15 PM

You are right on the state income tax - I hated it when I lived in NC. BUT, car and homeowners insurance is significantly less. So much so that you actually get a discount for having the same company which is impossible to do in South Florida. Insurance might not be as much for you as it is for me - Palm Beach County is HIGH.

Go Canes!!

Susan: IMPORTANT NOTE: Mark Richt said N'Kosi Perry "is available to play as of right now.'' I asked him if/when he'll announce any suspensions for bowl and he said, "If anything like that happens, we'll release it just prior to game time.'' So, will Perry be suspended just before game?

VA Cane

Weather will be clear, 35 to 37 degrees.....not our favorite circumstance re:weather......I hope the D will hit in the cold I think so.....Both Os will be limited because their starter is out....Hornibrook was 7/2 59.5% 1532 yds...but 13/11 tds/picks Malik 3-4 53.5% 1007 yds 6/5 tds picks.....so they were about even....Coan will QB for them...1/2 61% 442 yds 4/2 td/picks...so less experience, not a lot of difference.....weather, crappy offenses, bad STs....low scoring....
I do not think CMR cares about outcome..nor does staff and players...trip to NYC probably fun....Malik or Perry not a lot of choice in starter...neither is a good QB....
But lets do our best get a win...think with Manny coaching the D will be tough....lets get a win get out of town and get home to put this very lackluster season to rest.....I will watch cause I love The D and Manny a lot.....

Listening to a podcast featuring an extended interview with Lebron James, it was interesting to hear how in addition to perfecting his basketball skills, he undertook a determined study to learn how to become a good leader. N'Kosi would do well to copy that template.

Today started my last year of 30 something. The years are going too fast! 🤬

Life is still beautiful.

Happy birthday to me and Tom

Why? So he can talk about how these multimillionaire athletes are slaves? LeBron is a fucking bum!!!

TBC lol LeBron is a no more of a bum that Donald Trump's who is the biggest bum of them all. Take That.

Your right, I agree!

thirstybuzzardcane

Maybe LeBron should fork over his $90M contract with Nike! I guess it's alright that the person making his shoes makes $1.90 an hour. The hypocrisy is rediculous!

WWIN

Happy birthday Soup and Coke... enjoy y'alls day... so don't think about the Canes!!! 🤣🤣🤣

Lol! No way in hell Golden was this stubborn and dumb

If I'm Perry or Williams I'm transferring... especially Perry! The writing is already on the wall that he won't be starting next year

Go Canes!!

I'd be really surprised if they don't announce Perry is suspended tomorrow.

Terrance Sullivan

Happy birthday to CoCane as well.

Let's just find a way to win tomorrow. That's what needs to be done. Go Canes! Beat Wisconsin!

This to me is one of sports great hypocrisies.

Maybe Lebron could shoot some doe towards the U so we can pass out bags like all the sec schools do.

What's good Legion/Canespace? Happy birthday Soup and CoCane, enjoy your day.

Very informative BJ column today in the Herald regarding CMR's insistence on sticking with the pro-set despite better rushing numbers this year when they ran from a spread.

TonyCane

Lol! No way in hell Golden was this stubborn

He never changed his defense. Ever.

Posted by: WWIN | December 26, 2018 at 05:10 PM

From what I gather whoever loses the battle transfers by Week 5 of next season. Williams may have more upside if he's dedicated in the offseason to winning the job. If Perry is going to secure the job, he has to start taking it seriously.

That's the biggest imbalance problem in football. Bagmen. The SEC bagmen have their own ways:

https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2014/4/10/5594348/college-football-bag-man-interview

According to a coworker, UT did it differently. Players supposedly used to get their clothes drycleaned, and when they picked them up there was money in the pockets.

Then today I was reading rumors of one sought after recruit literally being wired money by an actual school.

Putting the debate aside over whether the athletes should be payed - and I lean towards payment - the totally ineffectual way that the NCAA polices this makes a mockery of college football. Three Alabama signees can post pictures on NSD with huge wads of cash, but that is not a problem. Alabama players can lease cars from their coaches, but that is not a problem. The families of players are given jobs, and that is almost never a problem.

If you believe the unsubstantiated rumors - and of course that is all they are - we're now talking about schools bidding over $200K for individual players. I'm curious if there has been a recruit who has broken six figures yet.

impossible to do in South Florida. Insurance might not be as much for you as it is for me - Palm Beach County is HIGH.

Posted by: CGNC | December 26, 2018 at 01:29 PM

Who besides CoCane and Go Canes is dumb enough to live in South Florida?

Now I reading after we won the ship in 2002 there was a story of someone at the school seeing a space ship that landed on the practice fields...they saw clappy, shannon, Goldilox with no d and Richt descending from the space ship...Red Planet was written on the side of the saucer and the witnesses said it looked like Saban was the driving....this explains the bizarre decisions that have been going on since our last nc....

VA Cane

Crazy....but thats how we do it ....many players in this family....settle it on the field...LOL UM wins BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Herbieibis

So we have 2 more Dec. Birthdays. Congratulations Coke and Soup u are in Elite group of December birthdays. Hope u been knocking down sum cold ones. Happy B-Day fellas.
Soup the Herb lives in Gastonia, NC. 1hour & 45 min.from the mountains. 3.5 hours from Myrtle Beach. Taxes high especially gas tax but since I'm only 7 miles from the South Carolina line, gas there runs about 18 to 20 cents cheaper a gallon. The Herb has a little crib at North Myrtle and that is where my rump is retiring too!

thirstybuzzardcane

Ooooof! The Cal and TCU QB's are absolutely terrible!

Herbieibis

I'm just wondering, since we wiffed so badly on the first signing day, where in the hell he is going another 12 players that he wants to add. Know Bogle, Stephson and Richards are really only hope for big time additions we could muster maybe Sorrells. Slim Pickings. Bowl game better be good if we want to make an impression.
Oh & Richt ain't changing no Offense he's still throwing ship offers to pro style QB's. One in Cali and one in Conn.

Terrance Sullivan

TBC correct this Game is Yuck and Poo!

VA Cane

Who is a worse influence...Luke or Snoop.....?
My opinion is both....they hurt good programs......and lets face it....talking behind process music is not music.....its BS.....RAP is like Communism....bad for society.........
