A good article about the Canes from the Virginia Tech perspective
A lot of respect for for the Canes.

Herb - in college there are so many coaches that can coach - what separates them in my opinion is how they recruit - they have not done a very good job in this area - we can’t keep the elite guys and we lose most of the very good ones - they are not that good of coaches to make up for it.

solarcane

When guys like Kool and the Gang are in the songwriters hall of fame there are for sure artists out there that should be inducted
Not hating on Kool and the Gang I dig them. I'm just sayin

Great post roach.

In my opinion...
Leon Russell needs to be in the writers HOF.

Good call Roach

Herbieibis

Aero, for the most part Banda and Rumph have done a good job coaching, BUT recruiting and being closers on the top talent has been below par.
Start out with all these 4 star players and then the decom and we fastly replace them with a few 4's and a bunch of 3's. When we have all them 4's to start with u hear nothing about the evaluation process but once they start dropping their no evaluation process is different and stars don't matter.

Billy Joel and Elton John are in the R&R song writers HOF any day, any time, for any reason.

ALlLgood choices SOUP. Including the Beatles and Fleetwood Mac.
In my opinion...
Leon Russell needs to be in the writers HOF. He's had SO many of his songs "covered," it's hard to believe. Leon was one of my all time favs. (May he RIP). WHAT a voice and talent for writing, keyboards AND guitar. On his Will-o'-the Wisp Album, he played multiple instruments on almost every track, and multi-tracked it with a few other artists. WAY before computers.
If I had a son instead of a daughter, (Jessica... Allman Bros. BTW) He was either going to be Dylan Roach, or Leon Russell Roach. (My Dad's name was also Russell.)

AeroCane

Tomorrow - things I want to see:
Rousseau

Herb - dont worry - manny will replace his 4 stars and numerous interceptions with a 2 or 3 star and rumph and Banda will retain their jobs!

solarcane

ESPN's Bear says we will win the Coastal

“Miami should be 5-2 when they take their road trips to Pitt and Florida State,” Fallica said.


Virginia Tech enters this week’s game against Miami looking to regroup from a 45-10 thumping from Duke last week—which was the Hokies’ worst loss to an ACC team since joining the league in 2004.


The Hokies are 1-7 in their last eight games

solarcane

roach,
that entire song is a cluster fyk to me.
It starts out with that creepy serial killer whistling, then lurches into a bad tempo. The worst part is when he sings that high part in a key that seems right where he should know better.

But I do like when he sings about Catholic girls.


roachcane77

Ok. This is DEFINITELY off track, and not Cane related, but I've ALWAYS been bothered by Billy Joel's "The Stranger" song.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the haunting whistling at the beginning and the end of the song. But, the change to the lyrical and melody portion in the middle just never seemed to "suit" the opening and closing "feeling."

I mean he's an unbelievable talent and artist, and I have 4 or 5 of his songs on my changing playlist at all times... but, I just feel like he missed the boat on how the melody and tempo go in the middle of THAT song... too much of a contrast perhaps? I'm sure other people, (and probably Billy himself), love that song BECAUSE of the contrast... I feel it should have stayed with the "haunting" feeling... maybe in a bluesy way, to depict the loneliness and distance provoked by the opening.

OK. Back to your regular viewing here please!

UM 42-14 VT.

Let's Go CANES!

solarcane

Thank you roach

Nobody said being delusional was a bad thing.
I think its part of a diehard fans DNA.

Most fans of a team that has been on the skids resort to all kinds of crazy shyt to justify why everything but the program is to blame.

I know for a fact Sports Illustrated conspired with a few television personalities and ESPN to bring wrath down on us. I have heard it from dozens of conspiracy theorists on here.

We scored more points against North Carolina's defense than Clemson.


Does that make our offense better than Clemsons?

Posted by: Go Canes!! | October 03, 2019 at 09:51 AM

Yes, definitely! Clemson is overrated. 'Bama too!

P.S. Just kidding! You make a good point. But the (hard) truth "will out" I suppose, when we have a sample size larger than just one or two ACC games.

Posted by: AeroCane | October 03, 2019 at 03:25 PM

- it's not bad
. . . but your triangulation of overly pessimistic - overly optimistic - realist is very weak
. . . don't forget about those 50 shades
. . . and don't forget that those shadings will change, depending on . . .

AeroCane

There’s delusional overly optimistic fans, way too pessimistic fans and ‘reality fans’
You are what you are
One is not better or worse, just different and in our case all canes fans no matter what!
I’m a realistic fan
I don’t give a shit about off season; I care about what I see on the field and recruiting and facts!
Facts: manny has no coaching experience
Manny has no pedigree (saben, Myers etc)
Manny has never been a good recruiter
Etc
Now I still believe in him and it’s only been 4 games (3 terrible) but I want to see the best players playing; I want to see an improving product;
That’s all I got right now

Aero this is why:
Delusional disorder, previously called paranoid disorder, is a type of serious mental illness called a psychotic disorder. People who have it can't tell what's real from what is imagined. Delusions are the main symptom of delusional disorder. They're unshakable beliefs in something that isn't true or based on reality
Posted by: solarcane | October 03, 2019 at 09:50 AM

ouch!

- do you think it could also have to do with what kind of a fan one is?

- i watched manny kill it in the off-season in his first year

. . . in his first 4 games as a coach he is not "killing it"
. . . nor is his OC; the same OC that everyone was SURE would "kill it"
. . . do they need time to settle in? or are we already sure what the "reality" is; i.e. another set of "losers"?

- if people want to pessimise, cynical'ize, groan, throw their wheaties bowl out the window, 4 games into manny's first season, they are welcome to do that
. . . they are also welcome to call this "reality" vs. "the delusional"

- personally, (and i'm not preachin' butterflies, rainbows or even fairy dust), doing a deep-worry dive about manny & the hurricanes is not what i, as a "hopeful" fan, (who is also not crucified on some "natl championship or bust" cross), am interested in spending my time doing

- manny's in charge of about 80 18 - 22 yr. olds (inkl walk-ons) + his staff + needs to keep in touch with a shyt-load of recruits/possible recruits + all the political/financial /media role-playing & responsibilities + game planning & film-watching each week + holding practices + another 25 things

. . . i have ZERO problem cutting the dude some slack his first year; allowing him some growing pains . . . i mainly want to see growth from him this year; i particularly don't want to see him lose the team

- if i start to see us getting shellacked again by the virginia's of the world, i will get restless, even in year 1 . . . but again, worrying about this canes stuff right at this point in time? just not me

- to repeat: i have NO PROBLEM with people ditching & dissing the canes (except when they do the 4-letter word stuff with members of our team, which i hate)

. . . but please don't act like you're the only grown-ass people on this blog

AeroCane

I saw Elton in concert and he literally stood up and bowed very graciously after every song! He was awesome
I love Billy Joel mainly cause he loves and respects the Beatles so much
I’m a huge Beatles, Aerosmith (my wife is friends with Steven) and Led Zeppelin
If anyone really cares lol

86Cane

That's like hating on Elton John. C'mon Mna!

Love me some Billy Joel.

Me too. Uber talented musician and outstading song writer who more than stood the test of time. I get that he may not be everyone's favorite musician ortype of music but how anyone can hate on Billy Joel is beyond me.

AeroCane

I am going to be a rebel and say we are 3-1 or 4-0 if Perry is starting
Guarantee we don’t beat FSU last year with Williams - he would NEVER of made that long throw into coverage for cager (or Landguard- don’t remember)
I’m ok with an int once in a while as long as it’s complimented with TDS

solarcane

Of all the D1 schools in the nation only Georgia Tech has completed fewer 20 yard or more completions than the Miami Hurricanes.
That is ridiculous smh

solarcane

Aero,
I know you know I know

solarcane

This is exactly what I said on here last week.( It is also why J4 doesn't have big numbers right now)

"The biggest next step at quarterback that the Miami coaching staff wants to see Jarren Williams execute in 2019?


Be decisive and get the ball out quickly.


Miami coach Manny Diaz talked about that next step on this week’s Hurricane Hotline.

“He did a good job during the first two games of just getting the ball out,” Diaz said of Williams. “He has great accuracy and at Miami we talk about getting the ball to our athletes.”


During Miami’s last game against Central Michigan, Diaz believed Williams was focused on waiting for receivers to come open deep rather than anticipating those throws.

“In this offense, you take what is available and Dan Enos does great job of calling shot plays,” Diaz said. “You have to read your key and if the safety does what you want him to do, then let it rip. Don’t wait to see the guy open. If the safety doesn’t do what we want him to do, then you have to get it to the open guy and let him catch and run.”

Nemo - agree
But what makes anyone think we are not a really bad ACC team? Because we think we are good? Because we are Da U? Because we have a great coaching staff? Because we beat mighty Bethune cookman? Etc LOL

Go Canes!!

Love me some Billy Joel.

AeroCane

I’d like to see a lot of Rousseau, hill, bolden and lingard- then I’ll have a little faith this coaching staff ‘may get it’. If I see a lot of patchen, Carter and knowles I will understand that this coaching staff is gutless and going no where; Jmo

nemo2002

Which team has the better offense?
Miami - which scored 17 points against Central Michigan two weeks ago; or Western Michigan - which scored 31 points against Central Michigan last week?

How about UM's defense?
We held CMU to 12 points.
WMU held CMU to 15 points.
So, arguably, we're a little better than WMU.

Incidentally, Wisconsin defeated CMU by a margin of 61 points. In contrast, UM defeated CMU by only 5 points.

I hope we do better against V Tech.
We really need a good ACC win, even if it's against a really bad ACC team.

AeroCane

I read CMD’s remarks on Lingard, Nelson and Clark, and I am becoming concerned about CMD. Nelson and Clark are the worst OL starters in the last two decades, and Lingard is an Uber talented R.B. that the Canes have coveted. Lingard has the ability to take it to the house every time he touches the football. I don’t understand

Posted by: BigWindyCane |

Finally - you get it!

solarcane

Windy,
sometimes I think Manny has too much shyt on his plate now and he tries to use all the coaching cliches on the press while he tries to figure out what is really going on.

Hopefully this VT game builds a lot of confidence and we play up to our potential.

I hope Lingard isn't another A Richards, best player on the team with bones made out of plaster of Paris.

How do u stay on top Bama 69 4 and 5 star players. OSU next. FSU in top 6, doing less with the most as usual same with USC. Wisconsin has like eight 4 and 5 star players. I think we have 34. Aside from OSU the Big Ten nothing but a bunch of grinders.

Herbieibis

Eff the NCAA. Everybody pulls out and leaves those azz holes swinging in DA Breeze. Nothing but politics with those buzzards. They pick and choose who they want to put the squeeze on. They need to worry about how college football is basically about the same 5 or 6 teams every year. Something is not right. Kept up with recruiting for almost 50 years and this stuff is getting out of hand. Look teams have spurts and decades where they are really good and then cool off. Recruiting is getting way out of hand. Take Clemson, their to do list in Oct. Can they get their 7 and eight 5 star players. Flowe and Henderson are thought to be landing there. All of the sudden Georgia is another glamour destination. High School football in Georgia has always been good but they have never recruited like they have in the last 3 years. They have recruited good before but all of the sudden 5 star city. Need a salary cap on recruiting, Ha!
