What A Bleep Show! Both UF and UM should be ashamed of themselves.

Like I have been saying, I will withold my judgement until after the first game of 2019, whenever it is played.

Go Canes!!

Honestly don’t see what the big deal is. Everyone is getting almost six months notice and it actually makes the game even more of a marquee matchup.

We’re officially kicking off the D1 football season.

Herbieibis

The only problem, we lose a week of practice.

Go Canes!!

We don't lose any practice time. We will be allowed to start fall practice a week early.

TonyCane

I think Florida has to definitely be favored. They have continuity...at least more so than we do.

On the positive side Florida will have nothing to scheme against. There’s not much film on Tate, and last year’s Miami offense film is meaningless.

Terrance Sullivan

Go Canes don't be. Jackass. Some of us have to request time off from work set up flights, Hotel Reservations etc. And UM, UF, etc knew they had petitioned to have the Game on August 24th but they didn't say jack bleep about it to the fans pushing the August 31st date. A obvious deceptive move when all they had to do back in December is say the Game might be on August 24th or August 31st or September 1st plan accordingly we will update you as soon as possible. But they didn't do that. Last year they moved the Game from Saturday September 1st to Sunday September 2nd but they let that be known a year in advance before they sold the first ticket by either school. Go Canes get your head Outta your Arse. Congratulations U win the Dumbass of the Day Award U should slap yourself. Freaking Pathetic just like UM and UF for running a Mickey Mouse operation.

Terrance Sullivan

And last year we had time to set up Hotel arraignments, flight arrangements or travel arrangements, set up work request time off etc. And everything was smooth. This year it's a cluster bleep. Unprofessional as hell. Great job UM and UF way to give the double barrel Middle Finger to your Fan Base.

Good rant on the fans getting dicked by pulling the rug out from under them with no regard for the changes thousands of people will have to make in their own schedules.

Terrance Sullivan

Solar Thanks Brotha I appreciate it. It's unreal how tone deaf UF and UM are. Sad.

86Cane

Sully...It is how elitists roll. Get used to it.

Terrance Sullivan

86 U are correct.

Go Canes!!

Elites?

Give me a break man.

I'm currently an employer, and have been an employee in my lifetime.

Sorry, SIX MONTHS is plenty of time to change what will probably be ONE day off for most people. And 99% of hotels can change your stay date without penalty.

I do feel badly for anyone charged a change fee to rearrange a flight but the vast majority of people who go to that game are driving, you two included 86 and Terrance.

Both schools are also offering refunds on tickets purchased, no questions asked if the change makes it impossible to attend.

You all make it seem like fans got 24 hours notice to change everything.

Butch up man, you sound like babies. Stop being outraged just to be outraged.

I had heard that it is all the rage these days so I thought I would try it just to see. To be honest it was a little disappointing.

Terrance Sullivan

Big Weekend. Need to win in Baseball and Basketball Start with our Lady Canes in ACC Tournament play in Greensboro. then Men's Basketball at VT, and Finally Our Baseball Team Hosts GT and Coach Morris aka 3 is getting his number retired.(Personal Commentary He needs his statue next to Coach Fraser aka the Wizard at the Light!

Go Canes!!

You are absolutely right! Our defense matches up very well with their offensive scheme. IMO we could've beat Florida/Mullen in 2008 if we didn't have so many young guys playing. We actually shut Tebow down!

Diaz knows Mullen well and will have a huge advantage because of that. I like us a lot in this game. First team to 21 will win!

Florida lost a lot on their OL as well. They are replacing 4 starters. My buddy who is a Florida fan is really worried about their OL.


thirstybuzzardcane

Having the game Aug 24 will make your flights and hotels cheaper. You have to remember that the original date was on a Holiday weekend which is busy in Orlando.

The only problem I see is people who have to take off work, but there is plenty of time to request the 24th weekend off. Having that extra day on the Holiday weekend probably helps as well.

I won't even bother

solarcane

If I spent a couple grand to go all the way to Texas to have the shyt stomped out of me, I'd feel a lot better about the BOT if they considered cutting me a little slack once or twice a season.

Go Canes!!

Lost in all the huffing and puffing by some about the date change, was this excellent point.

They'll be favored but Felipe Franks still sucks and didn't have a single great game against a quality defense last year.

They were the 2017 version of the Canes. Some miracle comebacks against some average teams and one quaity win against LSU. A game Franks was awful in.

They also lost four of five offensive line starters. Gonna be a great game.

Can't wait.

TonyCane

I hope so. A win will be huge for us.

A Florida win helps cement the notion that they are the FL program on the ascent, and a potential successor to Alabama. It solidifies recruiting progress made by Mullen. It also reduces our margin of error to zero for the rest of the season

A Miami win pops an illusionary balloon that is inflating vis a vi Florida’s ascent. It’s early enough to change minds for primary recruits and gives us instant credibility. It also greatly increases the odds that we are a Top 4 team when we make it to the ACC championship.

Go Canes!!

Yep:


▪ UM (13-16, 5-12 in the ACC) completes its worst regular season under Jim Larranaga when it plays at Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. on Friday on ESPN2.

Miami views what happened this season as a perfect storm of unfortunate events: the NCAA suspension of Dewan Hernandez, the departure of Mt. Saint Mary’s transfer guard Miles Wilson and a season-ending injury to Deng Gak. That compounded the fact that Lonnie Walker and Bruce Brown left early for the NBA.

Larranaga mentioned that at this time last year, UM was the third seed in the ACC Tournament. “We were looking forward to having that kind of year until these disasters occurred,” Larranaga told Joe Zagacki on WQAM’s Hurricane Hotline this week.

Though Wilson’s exit was never explained at the time - he would have been an asset as a scoring wing player - Larranaga said he simply “dropped out of school.”

Here was another hurtful factor that Larranaga didn’t mention: UM believed it was on the verge of landing at least three quality recruits before reports surfaced that incorrectly linked Miami to the Adidas scandal. One of those players, four-star Jalen Carey, is a freshman point guard at Syracuse.

and a potential successor to Alabama

Tony,
man I am glad you used the words potential successor,I could only imagine SOUPS reply had you left out the word potential

TonyCane

LOL...I’m just imagining the media hyperventilating about Florida under Mullen. But he’s no Saban.

For one thing, he doesn’t have the enhanced recruiting budget. Second thing, he doesn’t own a player friendly car leasing business.

thirstybuzzardcane

I think Mullen is trash. I wouldn't want him here!

nemo2002

Anyone (other than me) watching the Canes lose to VT tonight?
So what, if it's a blow out? So what, if we lose all our ACC road games? Coach Larrañaga must be saving the "good stuff" for the ACC tournament. Damn, the Old Man is a genius! Right?

Terrance Sullivan

Ugh we went 0-3 today.

Canes downed by GT, 5-4, on a 10th inning solo shot by GT.

Gotta find a way to take series from the big name opponents to make more of this season and start earning respect again, in spite of doing their jobs vs. all of the little guys. Still, last year they couldn't beat those guys either.

Miami women athletes are better coached than men's teams it seems to me

Posted by: solarcane | March 09, 2019 at 02:13 PM

Here we go again. 5-4, GT, although the Canes still have the bottom of the 9th to try to mount some offense.

Posted by: JCane | March 09, 2019 at 09:56 PM

Zamora with full count, runner on 1st.....hits it over the LF fence. 6-5, CANES WIN!!!!

LSU’s men basketball head coach Will Wade was caught on an FBI wiretap, offering to pay a handler to recruit current freshman Devonte Smart. Coach Wade is suspended by AD Joe Alleva, and LSU fans boo the AD? No one is upset at Coach Wade? This is more SEC hypocrisy!

If SEC fans are at a point where they universally endorse openly paying handlers, and such payments are routine and expected of their head coaches, then I think we are at a point where the pretense of amateur college sports should be abandoned.

As some of the bloggers have suggested here, if the major programs aren’t going to respect the amateur athletic rules, it’s time to reform the college system and pay these college athletes who bring revenue to these schools

VA Cane

Bad day if you are a Raider fan like me. I think A. Brown is a good player...but an idiot as a person, a lung cancer for the team, a disrupter and a fool with a horrible haircut. Gruden is also an idiot...he won the SB with Dungeys players and fell off after that. fine announcer...he and his brother suck as coaches. Gruden said Brown hardest worker ever seen...even more than Jerry Rice. What BS.....Brown not even close to rice in any way.
Personally, I hope he gets a knee blown out cause he is a jerk!

Another Pornboy and Potboy.....me guy. I hate me guys wish them worst no matter who they play for.
I would rather be .500 than have morons on my team. All those Steelers are jerks Ben Rapistberger is a jerk, Bell a jerk, Brown a jerk. Despise them...and Tomlin is a jerk who has no ball to control his players to a point of TEAM first!!

JCane

Canes up 4-2 bottom of 6th with a huge opportunity to take the first series in ACC play, especially since playing at home and having lost the opener in extras.

JCane

9-6 win for the U, in spite of an ugly 9th, giving up 4 and ending the game finally with 2 runners on. Still, a series win over GT at home.

VA Cane

Baseball looking good so far....hope they can keep playing well.
It cannot ever replace football, but success breeds success in my opinion...that winning attitude.

NativeCane

Thanks for game info JCane, don't Canes have roughly same amount of Homeruns through 15 games as they had through 56 games last year?

JCane

I don't know the specifics, but it has to be close, Native. Regardless, 12-3 beats the pace of last year's 7-8 by a landslide.

NativeCane

Yeah the 2019 team is tied with the 2018 team with 23 HR with 40 games to go.

BigWindyCane

The baseball team is fun to watch. They might surprise some people this season
