"It starts with me.....but I'm not going to change anything, address any of the systemic issues on offense, in the locker room, on the recruiting trail, or on the coaching staff, and things are going to get better. or not. whatever. I get paid either way" - Mark Richt

If rosiers first pass is a pick 6, we can be down 14-0 and maybe this will be richts Golden’s Clemson game and we can be done with this worthless pos

Like always, I just want then to win. Seems like ages, since I have felt good about our Canes. But today my package came with all my Shirts, vests, etc. with the U on allm and I feel a little better. Richt is a dick and Trump is an asshole. So, we don't have much to look forward to.
Caravans, drug dealers storning our country. What a joke and a farce. Just poor people, women, children, and their babies, trying to escape being murdered.
The head Trumpet and all his trumpeteeres should go to Russia and celebrate with the heaq trumpeteer's best friend. VLADIMIR PUTIN.
I've been to Russia and it ain't pretty.
Happy New Year, Canespacers.

and their receivers actually catch the ball so they score 50 points..corch hasnt seen 20 points let alone 50

Duke have a competent QB coach like we used to...

temple is a place to no where ...hope manny can move on with a better job...maybe the Canes....it would take superman to make temple relevant...duke should have never been in the game against our talent.

1) What would winning the pinstripe bowl vs whiskey do???

2) Which one would you rather win the most pinstripe bowl or season opener vs the gaytors?

3) But hold on... hold on... hold on! You actually think we have a better chance to win with Rosier than Williams???

Posted by: WWIN | December 27, 2018 at 04:06 PM

1) Winning every game is the goal of every football team. It's never okay to put players at risk for a game you aren't trying to win.

2) Lol, both of them, even though I doubt we win either of them.

3) Idk, but I'm not one of those guys that screams for the holy savior freshman QB whenever things aren't going out way either. Here's what I think... Jon Richt & Mark Richt are QB Coach Frauds. I wouldn't be even the least bit surprised if Williams is the worst QB on the team.

I like my Wiskey on ice and my women on fire.....

I only slightly disagree. The most important thing to do is to win... but Williams or Weldon get reps, period. Given what we know about Weldon, it should be Williams. Problem is we have clowns corching this team, so I'd expect precisely zero QBs to be ready to beat Wisconsin.

YOU START WILLIAMS TODAY!

You almost lost him and did EVERYTHING you could to get him back and now you don't play him when Perry is suspended... he has better skills than ANY QB on the roster right now... and there is a big chance that Perry won't be available in the opener next year! So why wouldn't you try to get Williams experience NOW??? Rosier doesn't help us in ANYWAY next year!

Bad teammate? NO... bad CORCH! Why would he wanna sit behind players that he is better than???

CGNC

As for the game tonight: CMR can start #12 - but I want to see Jarren Williams play - this is his opportunity to make a statement that he is our QB and work towards staying that way.

Go Canes!

My thoughts exactly when I heard Badgers going with the backup.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: UMike | December 27, 2018 at 11:42 AM

Now why’d you have to go and put that memory back in my head!

Ok, maybe the Dee Jay pass shouldn’t happen.

Terrance Sullivan

TonyCane Big Facts. Hopefully we win and Malik makes up for his dreadful OB Game performance 362 days ago.

TonyCane

I don’t blame Richt for starting Rozier, when you think about the options that presented themselves:

Perry: Social media snafu, but there is the other issue that was mentioned here and elsewhere that if true is presumably being appealed right now, but if upheld would make Perry unavailable in next seasons opener

Williams: Eight days ago he was ready to transfer. Do you hand the keys to the job to someone who was ready to abandon his teammates as they were preparing for the bowl game? You can make the argument that Jarren now has to prove he wants this in the coming spring. Just giving him the start now potentially sets bad precedent and possibly morale issues

Weldon: Suspended numerous times

Rozier: Probably the least gifted athletically, but by far the best teammate and leader.

VA Cane...you’re a coach. When you have those dynamics in play what would you do as a coach? It seems like they are all bad options.

UMike

Go Canes...I would rather not see our RB throwing a pass in a cold weather bowl game again lol

Harry Miller

The guy will never change, that's what the Georgia
fan I met on the plane ride back from that horrible
game in Texas said. He is suborn as a mule and makes a mule look smart. Thinks his way is the only way, doesn't the game has passed him by and we would be sick of him soon.

Guess what , He was dead on.

roachcane77

Heart vs. Head... AHH YES!!! Same old dilemma.

I suppose we'll lose... Run, run, pass, punt... Run, run, pass, punt... And in the process, make another backup untested QB look like a Heisman candidate.

BUT, I HOPE, (with my heart), that we come out on FIRE... USE our TALENT and SPEED, and DEMOLISH the Badgers!

A few more hours and we'll see.

mi@mic@ne

Can I remind the corch that the qb should pass to the receiver so that he can put his hands on the ball and if the receiver touches the ball he should catch it...just sayin

mi@mic@ne

If we are gonna see the Richt offense flourish we need to be reminded that there is only 4 downs to go ten yards.. if you are successful then you can march the ball down the field until you get to the red zone. When you are in the red zone you can score points..thats right...score 3 points or up to 8 points. The goal of the offense is to get across the goal line every time you get the ball...can we see a lot of this and less of the boring s stuff?

YooperCane

I am hoping for a Canes win! My bruh is a Badger fan and I can't take another year of him gloating.Go Canes!

Go Canes!!

Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | December 27, 2018 at 10:31 AM

Agree.


No one dimensional team can score on this D consistently.


Canes 27-10 with one defensive score and one TD pass for Dee Jay!

thirstybuzzardcane

I think we win today. Give the points and take Miami.

Miami 24
Badgers 10

AeroCane

Happy Holidays my friends!
My heart says we click on all cylinders on both offense and defense and we win 27-13
BUT my gut and reality says: we have richt as our HC and Willis isn’t playing (their RB is a beast) so I say we lose 27-13
Richt is so bad it’s pitiful; let’s all pray he has a calling after the Game and retires!

thirstybuzzardcane

After reading that article, how does Richt consider his offense a pro-style offense? This guy is senile!

thirstybuzzardcane

Richt better play Williams some today!

UMike

I almost don't even want to watch tonight. I will, but I honestly never thought I would see Rosier again. Probably rotate QBs, manage to score 10-14 points and lose a close one.

CoCane

Damn... Richt sucks

The Dude on High... does your real name happen to be Ahmad Brooks???
--------------------------------------------------------------------

ESPN’s Ahmad Brooks said the spread “fits N’Kosi Perry’s skill set better. It fits the skill set of your recruits in the state better. If Miami is running the spread, look out — Talk about stacking up some Coastal titles. That’s easy money for them....

“In a spread offense, more people touch the football. When you are out selling your program, you can say we’ve got plenty of balls to spread around. We will give you your touches and we can match what you were doing in high school. This is the offense that fits the U the best. This is the right system for [Perry].”

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.

thirstybuzzardcane

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

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!

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

Posted by: mi@mic@me. | December 26, 2018 at 05:57 PM

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.

TonyCane

He never changed his defense. Ever.

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

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.

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.

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.....

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?

CGNC

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.
