Mike,
Sadly no.
I had planned to visit my grand kids in Hickory then come watch the game with you Sully and the guys.

There was a change of plans Tuesday night with my daughter. I didn't want to put my wife through a hassle about last minute hotel, and I didn't want to drive back to Georgia after the game.

We are going to Pigeon Forge next Friday and Saturday for the Fall Rod Run so Im being cool about pushing my luck with the boss lady.
Have a great time!

UMike

Solar, will you be in NC tomorrow? Any other spacers besides TSully and myself going?

VA Cane

I am on Comcast and there is no ACCN on it yet. I do not watch anything but football so i would never pay for it. Hope to pick it up on some wacko channel online. Watch on the computer think TX vs LSU will be a great game as well.

"King has over 60 books out now with the release of new one"

Jeezuz skool,
what did Jane Austen write like 4? 60 Kings = .005% any Austen book to me. Jmo

Windy,
I am concerned we get burned deep at least twice.
I do think we are gonna see a lot of new offense from Enos.
I think our running backs make Williams night a lot easier than last game.
I think Thomas redeems himself on special teams.

Soup,
I'm very happy for you and Maria, that was awesome.
I was looking through my closet at my Cane,outdoor,hot rod tee shirts and came across the very first gift you gave me years and years ago.

It is a tee shirt that simply says ,"No Hate" on the front, meant a lot to me then,even more now.
Keep on keeping on.

AeroCane

Bolden our a few more games! This sucks as I feel he’s the answer at safety and carter has shown me nothing in his year and 1 game! He could of and should of been there to help Gilbert on the long pass play!

Old Skool

King has over 60 books out now with the release of new one. The guy is nothing if not prolific and profitable. He's rumored to pull in $60 million per year.

UNC freshman deadly with the long ball. Carter and Blades?

Posted by: solarcane | September 06, 2019 at 12:01 AM

I don't think Jarren made one throw beyond 20 yards, but the plays might be there on Saturday night. I also think that there might be some running lanes for DeeJay, CamRon and Lorenzo for some more explosive plays.

solarcane

IMG and Northwestern tonight,
lot of baby Canes on the field.
Hope Thirsty gives us a report.

Solar, did you ever read or watch The Stand?

Posted by: TonyCane | September 06, 2019 at 12:14 PM

Hi Tony,
Is that the one about the flu?
I never read it.
I admit Stand By Me,Christine Shawshank Redemption are pretty good movies that I enjoy.
I'm sure if King has over 50 or 60 novels out he has some more gems in there.
TommyKnockers(?), It, not so much.JMO

Does say a lot about CMD’s timeline IMO. He’s looking 2 years out. Don’t make any bets on our Canes getting past Clemson before then. Fighting for a Coastal div champ is best to be hoped for.

UNC freshman deadly with the long ball. Carter and Blades?

1. The Canes have had two weeks to prepare for UNC.

2. A solid win against UNC will go a long way in helping the Canes reestablish themselves as the elite of the ACC Coastal

Posted by: BigWindyCane | September 05, 2019 at 09:11 PM

1. We will see what improvements and game planning (if any) will be implemented.

2. A solid win would be nice. Anthing else will open the flood gates of negativity.

BIG game on Saturday night.

Herbieibis

Another true Freshman starting. Doesn't say much about our upper class men. Moving Scaife, is a good move.
LB's got to be better than last game and tackling as a whole better be better.
Da (U) 27-17. Good to take a while for us to truly be clicking on all cylinders. S lot of trial and error to get the parts in place.

BigWindyCane


"Freshman Jakai Clark will reportedly be promoted to the first-team offensive line at right guard with Scaife moving to right tackle"

The Bloodmobile should be in Coral Gables Sunday morning.

Posted by: solarcane | September 05, 2019 at 05:28 PM

☝️🤔 I don’t know anything about Clark, but Scaife will definitely solidify that RT spot.

I hope the Canes can run the football effectively. Old fashioned football against UNC - run the ball effectively and stop your opponent from running the ball. The Canes have had two weeks to prepare for UNC. A solid win against UNC will go a long way in helping the Canes reestablish themselves as the elite of the ACC Coastal

Im not ready to move on from those guys just yet. We don't even know if williams is the guy yet. And I think Tate will add something to the WR group, especially if other guys continues to not step up.

Me sooooooo tired.

UM 34-UNC 17.

That is all.

solarcane

Jarren completes 65% of his passes for 260 yds, is sacked 3 times throws 2 tds and no picks Im good.
Dallas and the Rbs are good for 3 scores. throw in at least one fg.
I dont see our defense giving up 24 points, I think we are good to go.

BigWindyCane

UNC rushed for 238 yards against South Carolina, and the Canes cannot allow that to happen against UNC. Looking for Jon Ford and the DTs and Shaq and the LBs to continue to shut down the run. The DBs need to tackle better. All hands on deck.

If the Canes get more yards rushing than UNC, and win the turnover battle, then I will feel pretty good about a Canes win. If the Canes also protect Jarren and cut the penalties down, then I feel pretty good that it will be a comfortable win for the Canes!

Question of when his eligibility clock would begin for his entry to transferring away from his former institution and how that would make his eligibility at his destination delayed until he's sat out the stipulated amount to be eligible again. If you announce you want to leave but don't actually do the information submission to start to go, you're not on your way out and thus don't get to play immediately without a waiver otherwise when you finally get around to finding a new program to join.

NCAA keeping bolden from playing - what a shame...

Posted by: AeroCane | September 04, 2019 at 02:12 PM

What is the reason he can’t get cleared?

UMike

We have to have the worst record for QB busts over the last 15 years or so lol

solarcane

Watching Marve vs UNC 2008, Jeez we have had some average or worse qbs forever.

AeroCane

NCAA keeping bolden from playing - what a shame as he’s a critical piece in my mind and will ultimately replace carter
Good news - hopefully we will get to see lingard

AeroCane

Defensively I think it’s critical we get Rousseau and hill more snaps. Even the true freshman DE. I like patchen, but just not the talent of the 3 I mentioned. They will put pressure on the freshman QB and complete it with sacks!

AeroCane

Mallory - not only o-3 but a CRITICAL holding call that was one of 3 or 4 key plays that cost us the game!
Also, why is everyone giving Tate a hard time? The guy is a talent, has speed, works hard and can help us!
Also, why is the coaching staff or no one else talking about the absolutely stupid ‘unsportsmanlike conduct’ by blades?
Lastly, when are we going to get a real special teams coach and actually recruit a kicker vs ours, who every time he kicks, your clueless as to if he’s going to make it.

Ouch

Mallory earned 26 snaps against Florida and was targeted three times and caught zero of those balls. Only offensive tackle John Campbell graded out worse than Mallory

Go Canes!!

We don't cut scholarship players who work hard and want to be here.

solarcane

I think Martell works really hard from what I read. People seem to like him or hate him. I think Enos likes having a guy beside Dallas as a multi threat.
We are going to see a lot more formations this week IMO

I feel the UNC qb might be over confident starting the game, and if we don't shut him down from the get go their whole team will feed off it.

They are going to be on Jordan the whole game so some receiver has to step up.

UMike

Im not ready to move on from those guys just yet. We don't even know if williams is the guy yet. And I think Tate will add something to the WR group, especially if other guys continues to not step up.

VA Cane

Martell and Pornboy are not needed...cut their ride at end of season...they both suck....Martell is not a WR...he sucks....PB is horrible FK them both get rid of them ASAP....we need real QBs not has beens washed up HS promises.....they both are very average players...cannot contribute...get rid of the fools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

roachcane77

Speaking of Mallory... he was one of my major disappointments in Game 1 Week 0.

After all of the preseason hype, he contributed... zero?

I feel like we need to find a way to get him involved...

Well... hopefully, Saturday...

VA Cane

Make a big difference matchupwise.....if the OL ever figures out how to block....I grade my guys on O and D...that OL does not get a number....They get a DX...suck it...they sucked badly!!!!! got to get better!!!! FAST!!!!!!!!

I am here to gloat, and to tell you I told you so.

Posted by: Dude on a Pale Horse | September 03, 2019 at 06:44 PM

That’s good news! Njoku will add a lot of depth to the Canes TE position group. I wonder how close Njoku is to contributing and will he see reps with Jordan and Mallory ahead of him and Irvin receiving no reps against UF? He is noticeably taller than his brother and taller than Jordan and even Mallory, but not as muscular. He is a legitimate 6’6”, and IMO, could present matchup problems with ACC safeties and LBs.

solarcane

Thanks CG,
Looking back, going surfing the day before and the day after hurricanes probably not smart.

Yeah, like Old Skool said, I was too young, (6), to know about the catastrophic damage Donna dealt out up the entire eastern seaboard.

But, I can still remember what a massive wreck our neighborhood was in North Dade.

VA Cane

Yes solar I have heard that the OL/QB play was gonna get much better since Romberg, Bibla, Sherko-Haji, Gonzalez, and McKinney were on the line and Kenneth Simon Dorsey was at QB....somehow someway....it has not quite panned out....actually not even close!!!!! This OL has a long long way to go to be that...better get working lifting hustling and learning...coaches and players!!!

Soup....uh while in Amsterdam....uh hmmm.....might you bring a sweet treat back to your family?.....LOL!!!!!
Hope you and Mrs 86 had fun safe travels home...you both deserve it...glad you had a good time!!!!

Of course, there was one other big event in Miami during the months before Cleo hit: The Beatles came to town.

Thank you CGNC. I was a bit young to know much more than I went through in Orlando. Consequently, I never knew about all the damage elsewhere. My frame of reference was much larger when Cleo arrived.

Man I remember the day before Donna hit, carrying our surfboards out to the end of the jetties and jumping in. You would get one terrifying ride for a couple seconds.

Imagine someone shooting you out of a cannon through a car wash, and into a solid wall. yeah just like that...ahh to be 13 again.

roachcane77

Old Skool... I was in Miami when Donna hit.

I'll never forget the next day, seeing a chain link fence totally wrapped up like someone had spun it around a spool. (CHAIN LINK! How does that even happen with so little surface area?)

I cannot imagine what is happening to Freeport right now... (Luckily, Dorian is passing somewhat to the North.)

Old Skool

So, we are stuck in Europe for now, but maybe to ATL or TPA later on. MCO is closed for bidness. Something about a storm?

Posted by: 86Cane | September 02, 2019 at 05:30 PM

Orlando's just getting a Cat 5 kiss. Nothing like when Donna hit. Unfortunately, I remember that.

roachcane77

There's always HOPE...

I STILL think Enos could do a better job "covering" our lack of O-Tackle ability.

Did we run many, or ANY screens in the 2nd half last week?

Did we run a single reverse, or misdirection play in the second half last week?

Williams can only do SO much with zero time... So get the ball out of his hands and into some "playmaker" hands QUICKER, please!

solarcane

Posted by: roachcane77 | September 02, 2019 at 03:34 PM

Good points Roach
I guess Williams better show out this season so the high school boys know Enos is legit.

BigWindyCane

I see the UNC game as similar to the Canes coming off a bye week. The Canes should be rested and prepared. Any win on the road against an ACC Coastal team is great, but I expect a win.

I would like to see improvement where the Canes showed weakness against UF. IMHO, there are several areas that need dramatic improvements: (1) Improvement in pass protection with the OTs, (2) improvement in tackling, (3) improvement with Jarren going quickly through his progressions and ball security, (3) eliminate special teams miscues, (4) eliminate penalties, (5) improvement with coverages, etc.

IMHO, JT and the other playmakers need to get some quality touches to see who can consistently give the Canes the big plays and frighten opposing defenses. Not sure we have seen that yet in Enos offense, but I will excuse week 0 against UF with this very young offense.

If the Canes improve those weak areas, everything else should take care of itself and strengthen my faith in the CMD era moving forward.

Mack Brown is 196-97 (average of about 6-3 each year for his career)without a bye week as a coach. It's either this one or a UVA home upset in November if they're pulling any at all this season.

Thread posted on Canesinsight, Should Barry be fired after this year if the Oh line doesn't improve?
I say go get some depth of talent to work with. Barry got handed this Effed up situation with no real true Tackles. Can't make no lemonade with out some dam lemons.

herbieibis

Those three qb's got developed. Mayfield, didn't have many offers out of high school. Murry a 5 I believe and Hurts a 4.

solarcane

Windy

If we get Van Dyke and especially Jake Garcia and Enos stays I have a good feeling about the qb spot.
The o line ever gets its stuff together any number of qbs could be deadly with Enos

BigWindyCane

Solar,

Kosi definitely hasn’t been nowhere near the level of Murray, Mayfield or Hurts, and I am not sure we have one of those yet. Maybe Jarren or one of the QBs on the roster can develop into a better QB. IMHO, I would like to start with Enos recruiting/developing a QB who is the best QB in the ACC Coastal, then build from there to the best in the ACC and the nation. The Canes haven’t had the best QB in the ACC Coastal yet.

solarcane

CGNC,
I think you are right on all counts.

I don't get the hate for the guy. He just wants to be in the game and not on the bench.

If he had a do over he might be a WR at The Ohio State and be playing for a National championship one day.
The trade off for his present girlfriend for a Midwest farmer's daughter might be a deal breaker though.

solarcane

But IMHO, when you have QBs like Jalen Hurts, Kyler Murray or Baker Mayfield, it also helps a lot.
Posted by: BigWindyCane | September 02, 2019 at 12:49 AM

that's what we heard Kosi was gonna bring, then between his immaturity and Richts stubbornness we got Rosier.

CGNC

Every ACC opponent we play is not a sure thing to be honest.

Solar, I think Tate left OSU because Urban left. Wanted to be a QB and thought he would have a better shot in Miami, be with some former high school team mates AND not have to live in bucknutville. He is an athlete and wants to play. I wish him success here.

Old Skool

Despite an early indication that it planned to go to Miami, looks like Dorian is going to give South Florida the traditional Cat 5 tease and take an official visit to Georgia or South Carolina. If that's the case, Tyrique would be a far more appropriate name for the hurricane than Dorian.

HeGotGoodFeetTho

BWC, you sure you want JT4 to get a lot of touches? One of his directly resulted in a UF win and another he lost his chance for redemption.

BigWindyCane

Oakie makes offense look easy.

Posted by: Herbieibis | September 02, 2019 at 12:26 AM

True. I agree 100%. A spread offense would be great. But IMHO, when you have QBs like Jalen Hurts, Kyler Murray or Baker Mayfield, it also helps a lot.

The Canes need a QB like one of them. Not sure if those QBs are nature or nurture/made or developed (or a combination of both)? But the Sooners had two special QBs win the Heisman and become #1 overall NFL picks, and maybe a third

Herbieibis

Said it before, when u have average offensive linemen, the spread is where we need to be headed. Why we stick with the pro style is beyond me. If we got Bama or Georgia type cruits, we could run what ever we wanted. Oakie makes offense look easy.

solarcane

BigWindyCane

After two catastrophic knee injuries in college, the 36-year old future HOF RB Frank Gore, is getting ready for his 15th season. The Bills kept Gore and cut McCoy. Amazing.

Lewis at LB, Reed and Taylor at Safety, the Stork at DE, Wilfork, Sapp and JEROME Brown at DT, Irvin at WR, Kelly at QB, etc., the list goes on of the All-Time NFL HOF greats to play each position. There has been some truly great Canes to run through the smoke, and Gore is definitely one of the all-time great RBs to ever play this game.

VA Cane

Yes the tackles have got to be coached hard!!!!
Al Blades needs to talk less and tackle like Dad and Uncle Bennie. when he does that, talk to me. His tackling was very very poor he has to get better. UNC will be a tough game for us....with this line they all will be tougher than thought to be. I agree solar, 11-1 10-2 might be a liitle much based on the FL game....we will know more Sat!!!
Please all stay safe CGNC you are a riot......much better than Pornboy
!!!!!

BigWindyCane

The Canes open as a -5.5 to -6 point favorite on the road against the Tar Heels. ESPN gives the Canes a 63.1% chance of winning

herbieibis

The Herb says this, until we learn how to play with consistence and win on the road, I don't feel good about any game we play, save a couple of ham and egg games we have on the schedule. This UNC game should tell us what direction we are headed in.
