Win The Game, the ones you're supposed too!

Mark from Atl

Rome wasn’t built in a day
But they had a plan

Here’s hoping Manny & co are prepared this season!

Just really want to see effort across the board! That would be a beautiful thing and something sorely devoid from our beloved Canes for a while now

God bless you and your family and go Canes!
Get some!

1. What coach EVER says "Our goal is to go out and score a bunch of points"?

2. They all talk the same talk and use the same buzzwords.

3. Mopers gonna mope I guess...

1. Just once I would love to hear a coach say that.

2. So tired of hearing politically correct "coach speak". Be bold, break the mold.

3. Some people are perpetually stuck in mope mode. It kinda goes with the territory we have covered over the last 15 years.

I’m officially starting to worry about how much we’re agreeing lately.

Is this what getting old feels like??

Players do
Burrow when he heard Brady was going to help OC LSU:
“I think we’re going to score a lot of points, and I don’t think a lot of people are used to LSU scoring 40, 50, 60 points a game," Burrow said

peebster its called attrition

the action or process of gradually reducing the strength or effectiveness of someone or something through sustained attack or pressure.
"the council is trying to wear down the opposition by attrition"

Think you nailed it sir. And it only took what, 10 years?

And to think after FIU I had turned to the dark side and let all that work go to waste.

Manny better come through damn it!

Happy Tuesday peeps! Solar, good find on the article.

Would love to have kicked B Baker to the curb and grabbed CS- definitely a huge upgrade in recruiting:

pb,
I think we are in real good shape.
I think Howell from UNC will probably have a Heisman day against our secondary unless the pass rush is as advertised.
I don't see anybody else on the schedule with too much firepower.

YUP, that and attrition. Too tired to fight anymore.

Found myself being AngryCane all the time and just had to let it go. Can only kick the dog and yell at the wife so many times before you get to the brink of losing all you worked for.

Just had to let it go...for now.

Now we come out and give up two sacks, go three and out a few times, miss a FG and blow a coverage for an easy TD there are no guarantees on what I might do. Nobody will be safe then.

But for now it's all peace and calm and I have allowed faith, hope and love return another time. But PLEASE Lucy I am begging you, PLEASE don't pull the ball out on me again, PLEASE just let me kick the ball this one time?

LOL

Pb,
Several articles I have read have pin pointed our DT'S that need to pick up the pace. They are good but not great. Not alot of pressure generated up the middle last year. Easier to step up in the pocket.
The Howell kid was from my neck of the woods. The dude is good and was throwing dimes all year on deep balls. Sort of like a control pitcher hitting his spots but that touch can go South, look at Lawrance. Our secondary was somewhat Green last year. For some reason, we always seem to struggle against them. Last time we played at the Rock T.O.'S saved us.

We get UNC at home, and 6 games into the season. The Canes should be 5-0 (Temple, Wagner, UAB, Michigan State and Pitt) rolling into that game with a lot of momentum. Lashlee and King should be firing on all cylinders at that point, and the Canes should be ready to win a shootout, if needed

HerbieIbis

U know u are taking seconds when u look at Bama's projected starting secondary will have 4 So.Flo. kids, Florida has 3 and Georgia 2 plus one top backup.
Ivey is our weak link. He's got to improve.
Can't keep watching these kids from down wearing the road out of So.Florida.
Saw where some dude called Shannon, Radio. Got a big chuckle out of that.

I think UNC is about our toughest game as far as QBs go. I think if we score first and get the fans going nuts we will be good to go and score big numbers.
UNC has never been intimidated by us. Its time we really put a Joe Rock stadium ass whuppin on them.

Shiffrin competes across multiple disciplines, against many women who train specifically for one or maybe two individual events. Because she must train for more races and races more, she will inevitably train less in any one discipline and will be less familiar with the mountain and the courses. Factor in rain, sleet, snow, hail, shifting wind conditions, flat light, obscene turns, steep grades, uneven terrain, crowd noise—not to mention her field of sometimes 50 competitors, who also train year-round, with their own teams—and it’s a wonder how Shiffrin triumphed as often as she did last season. Golfers can miss a shot here and there. Tennis stars can lose the odd set. Boxers can turn knockdowns into knockouts. Shiffrin can’t screw up a single turn. “To conquer all of those things with that high of percentage of win rate is just beyond belief,” Shaw says.

“I feel like one day I’m going to wake up and not believe it happened,” says Shiffrin’s strength coach, Jeff Lackie. “It defies logic. When you’re standing there at the finish, or on the hill, and you’re watching it unfold in front of you, and you know the work and dedication she’s put into it, it’s still impressive. Later on, people that don’t even understand the sport are replaying the highlights, and you’re saying, ‘What she does is insane. It’s not even remarkable. It’s next-level dominance.’ ”

alpine talking skiing??? Go figure...😂

It's true though, Shiffrin is a freak of nature to dominate is so many different disciplines... Absolutely NO margin for error.

When the Canes start winning, they all will come (or at least trip over each other trying to get in)!

The Word From The Herb

BigWindy,

This is partially true but Florida hasn't been no juggernaut it's a better conference, with better games and more upper tier talent.
Yes, winning consistently will cure most of our ills, but this conference doesn't particularly get u ready to play the big dogs.
It would help if Miami and FSU would get back to where they once were.
Saw an article where FSU recruiting rankings for the last four years has them around 11 and they still suck. Were in the top 10. Miami, I believe is around 17.

Pro Football Network put out a two-round mock draft earlier this week and it had a pair of current Miami Hurricanes selected in the first round with defensive lineman Greg Rousseau going No. 7 overall to the New York Giants and tight end Brevin Jordan coming off the board at No. 18 overall to the Tennessee Titans.

https://www.profootballnetwork.com/2021-two-round-nfl-mock-draft/

I also see it is full of some recruiting misses we had, but if we can at least get back in the first round again, that is a start to something special!

LOl

maybe that`s enough, I think its Justin Wells we quit.

orange 'n green in the vein

Where has this Keith Stone been every night?

BigWindyCane1

Virginia Tech is making a run 😬

BigWindyCane1

Keith Stone carries the team to new heights in the first half, and what do the Canes do?

They go away from him and Virginia Tech goes on a run.

Sarasota 'cane

I turn away for a minute and the canes are down 5!

BigWindyCane1

Yep Sarasota,
But We are hanging in there. This is the lineup that gives us a chance to close

BigWindyCane1

Overtime!

BigWindyCane1

Double overtime!

BigWindyCane1

If the Canes could avoid crucial turnovers in crunch time and overtime, the Canes would have already won this game

Sarasota 'cane

Hell yeah!!

Go 'canes!!

nemo2002

Miami is hanging tough in double OT.
Wong is keeping us in this game!
Go Canes!
