"Solar They are wearing The Storm Troopers just Not The Parley Uniforms on Saturday. U were correct"


Sully,
thanks!
my son said we were wearing the Storm Troopers, then he later said hey we have some new seaweed Storm troopers too.

I thought he meant we were wearing a new design.

I love the Storm Troopers, then next orange jersey with white pants and black shoes

Yes sir Solar!

Loved the sayings.....

My mantra to my troops for 41 years now has been 2....

1. "Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we may catch excellence".
2. "Winning isn't everything, but wanting to win is the only thing".

I lost a lot of guys from last years team, but have a lot of young talent. We are expected to be just good....I think we will be really good....we are really going to surprise people....really good size and speed.....very smart skilled QB....hitters....we will be a problem for people....and people are overlooking us.

My college team is average...but my area the DBs are really going to be good....

Solar They are wearing The Storm Troopers just Not The Parley Uniforms on Saturday. U were correct. They Rocking the Parley Uniforms for UVA Game. Well I guess and hope we Have VT on Primetime on ABC and we can Rock our Miami Nights Uniforms(Black).

TSully, I really like this idea and hope that it comes to fruition! I am taking my fiancé to the VT game for her first trip to Miami and first Hurricanes football game... she finally gets to see me at my worst!!! That being said, a night game in a crazy Hard Rock with black unis would be an impressive introduction!

Get well soon Kenny!

Manny is the P T Barnum of football, He knows what fans love to see.
Our uniforms during the Diaz Era will be outstanding I think.

I can't see Jimmy Johnson saying "you know instead of scaring the shyt out of our defense if they play bad and running them till they puke, I'm gonna make a little necklace and give it to guys that make plays, yea that's the ticket."

Times and kids change, Manny knows this and unfortunately CMR was still thinking Bobby Bowden was edgy.

I think our conditioning is the x factor.

Hope so solar.

Watched the highlights (lowlights) of the LSU game earlier and that entire game was 3rd downs. Miami couldn’t convert them and LSU did. Tossing
Pick six never helps.

This doesn't account for changing in timing rules and overtime adoption so it's very apples to oranges to pears comparison. Also you broke your own supposed system by listing Harris' first year as the same as Marve's but not using Dorsey's first year when he started the opener in 1999 . . .

Brothers & Sisters,
The Herb has been eye balling a lot of the details of this here up coming tilt. My earlier prediction of 24-23 was a little optimistic. The more I'm looking at the big picture, I'm just wondering where can we be consistent on offense.
2 greenhorn tackles against a somewhat veteran defensive front.
A greenhorn QB That we all hope can play like Dorsey, Walsh, and Kosar did years ago as either freshmen or R.S.F. We had better over-all talent back then. Our defense is going to have to carry us once again. I see us having a hard time running the ball. I don't think Florida is that good but even with Enos's helping hand, I think Williams will struggle. The easy stuff he will be fine with but having to chunk it 20 yds over the middle could be scary. Turn overs will either aid us in victory or kill us in defeat. Haven't beat a top 10 ten on the road since 2005 and this is another thing that Manny has to cure, is our road woes. We can't get stage fright and we have to play to win not to lose.
With all that being said, Florida 23 Da U still 24. Call me loco because I wanted to say 23-13 Flo. But The Herb is a Believer In Manuel and we had better win cause them cruits will start Decomming if they see the same crap as last year, with this OH.

Yeah, kids today decommit and transfer in a heartbeat. Canes need a BIG WIN Saturday night!

Every Cane Qb first start since Ken Dorsey, they didn't all start against the number 8 team in the country.

VA Cane

Herbie,
I agree....we have a fine D....great skill players....but if you cannot block your opponent and protect the QB...it will be another long day. My big concern is the OL. Lose this one and its a tough start. Hope the OL coaches and players are ready to get after it...big time!!!!!!

TonyCane

OGV..I thought about that but basically went for a minimum of games started. I was leaning more towards showing what was close to the first full year as a starter. That’s why I excluded 99 Dorsey, 10 Morris and 89 Torretta (although that would have also been informative).

gnv

I'm a bit nervous too about starting 2 freshmen at tackles. Hoping that coach Barry see's alot of potential in them. The one thing that gives me hope is that they've been lining up against 2 future NFL picks at DE which will only make them better. Maybe I'm bias but J. Garvin is much better to me than Zaniga or whatever his name is for the turds. I believe Nelson will pleasantly surprise us Saturday night in pass blocking.

raizecane

Just got confirmation that I have a ticket to the game so I will represent Canespace to the best of my abilities. Or at least just before kickoff.....

Missed extra point? Evan McPherson was the best high school kicker in the country when signed and went 50 for 50 on point after touchdown attempts last year as a freshman. Don't bet the farm on it!

"Posted by: TonyCane | August 21, 2019 at 01:35 AM"

At least you admit you cheated when caught, I figured you'd know exactly who else got that benefit of cherry picking because I knew if there was one getting preferential posting treatment there was probably at least a few more benefiting the same way. Also I forgot to mention the 2002 season and later bowl\postseason game additions to what counts as official 'season' totals of stats now, that's another generational factor in this type of look at who did what that warps the final results.

"Posted by: raizecane | August 21, 2019 at 07:09 AM"

I came close to springing for one too last night now that prices are slightly dropping this week but I think FIU\old Orange Bowl site\Butch Davis homegame for his team is going to be the better trip for the money spent so no sale yet, how good is your seating? The baseball stadium hosting a football game always provides substandard seating arrangement but even the weird angles are closer for the money to the actual field a lot of times despite that problem.

Anyone hearing any updates on cable providers picking up the ACC Network? Specifically Frontier for me. I call them and message in FB daily but they refuse to provide updates on negotiations. I can’t find much info on the internet, other than negotiations continue with all cable providers.

It became available on Spectrum this week, but I wouldn't hold my breath that Frontier will do anything that costs them money.

I currently have Playstation Vue and Spectrum internet but I'm switching back to Spectrum Cable now that the ACC Network is available.

Every streaming service is missing too many channels that we come to expect, plus the service on streaming channels sucks if the country is all watching the same event simultaneously like a big game. It starts to pix-elate if the traffic gets heavy.

I had Spectrum streaming last winter and the National Championship was practically unwatchable.

This is the current list, with Comcast expected to sign on soon:

It is expected to launch with at least 34 million subscribers, and distribution deals are in place with, among others, DirecTV, Charter/Spectrum and Verizon Fios, along with Hulu, Google Fiber, YouTube TV and PlayStation Vue.

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly Sarasota and They already have double the Subscribers of the Pac 12 Network who has been in business for 9 years lol!

solarcane

When ACCN launches on ESPN is there like a pre launch hour program then a go to channel 892 or whatever channel your provider is using then ACCN beams on?

Then four months from now when we have seen 500 girls soccer games, 800 lacrosse matches, some bad mitten, and 3 Canes games will we look at each other and say WTf were we so excited about?

Terrance Sullivan

For those that only give a Crap about Football and nothing else then there is no reason to give a crap about the ACC Network. But If you care about more than only Football you should give a crap about the ACC Network. The End!

Terrance Sullivan

Miami will have several Games shown on the ACC Network from Football, Basketball, Baseball, and all the other Sports in the Athletic Program, plus their will be features on the Players and Teams etc. And Games will be shown again that are on other ESPN Family of Networks etc. So Their will be plenty of Canes Coverage especially for those who love Multiple Miami Hurricanes Athletic Programs, Now if Miami Hurricanes Football is the only thing that matters to You it will still get plenty of coverage it just might not be enough for you to give a crap about. Go Canes!

Agreed. If you're only watching football you won't notice a difference, but I bet they will move a lot of basketball programming next year and all the baseball to the network. If they do it right they will have a lot of exclusive talk shows and whatnots, but football shouldn't be an issue for games, yet...

Posted by: solarcane | August 21, 2019 at 01:36 PM

Recant your blasphemy! I’ll take 500 girls soccer matches and raise U another 100. Best entertainment value for the buck out there! LOL

In truth, my kiddo started at FIU played a season, tore her ACL (2nd time), took a semester off and studied in Spain, then transferred to UVA and is now playing and studying for the Hoos. So I’m kinda biased toward girls soccer. Tried to get Miami interested in her but never got enough traction.

Terrance Sullivan

Also with The Huddle and All-ACC Football will be covered plenty and Miami will get plenty of attention. I mean even though the Miami vs Florida Game will not be on the ACC Network it will be on ESPN, The ACC Network will have a ACC Party Watch where Jon Beason, Coach Richt, Jon Vilma, etc will cover the Game and provide perspective from the Miami Angle etc.

UVA is an awesome school. Your daughter must be super smart! Thomas Jefferson designed a lot of the buildings on the UVA campus.

Terrance Sullivan

The Huddle show dedicated to ACC Football will have a 2 Hour ACC Preseason Show this Friday Night at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central. I am quite sure Our Canes will be covered pretty good.

Sarasota 'cane

Almost forgot...

The drawing for the next Canspace UM Tervis Tumbler giveaway will be at 9pm on Friday night!! 1st post at 9pm will wins it!!

The Canespace Legends cup this week is going to SolarCane! He needs no introduction here!! Solar send Soup your address and let me know if you want the U logo cup or the Ibis cup.

I expect everyone will have a cup in the next year or two so be patient!!

The next-next drawing will be the Friday before the FSU game.

Good luck to all who wish to enter!!

Had a scare last night....a Dr was referred to me to do an appraisal on his house....tax assessment 1.2 million...thats not the issue....he wanted me to come Sat....YIKES thats gameday....BUT....going at 3.....and game at 7 sigh of relief!!!

It all will depend on the line. Dont care if Brady is at QB....you cannot win with a OL that is a sieve and slow as turtles!!!! I think we win if the line surprises....but if leaky and weaky we may hang close...D will be good but on field too long UF will win a squeaker!!!
So OL if ya listening....lets go be ready for a fight!!!!

Agreed! We go as the O-line goes. Now if the defense shocks and confuses UF that can start a chain reaction ala VT and ND, but UF will be bringing some 5* beef and UM will have to step up or we could be looking at another LSU opener.

Go 'canes!!

DTX Sully
To each his own,when football season is over I doubt I will turn ACCN on til next year.
I watch a combined total of maybe 10 hours of TV a week during non
college football season.
My hat is off to anyone that can sit through a baseball game on TV.
Guys that can watch golf, bass fishing or NASCAR all day astonish me.

I have about a years worth of rock concerts recorded I haven't watched.
Everybody relaxes in different ways I guess. I even watched like three college softball games with my grandkid, but my heart was out sliding along the waterfalls.

I gotta be kayaking, fishing, riding around on the side by side in the mountains, or annoying my neighbors.
Maybe I just have claustrophobia lol.

Coach Jimmy Johnson had some great things to say today about CMD, his coaching staff and the team. Regardless OD the outcome of the UM/UF game, JJ seems to think that the Canes will have a great season, and be a team we can be proud of. I agree 100%
