Herb that Aaron kid also kicked extra points as a 9th grader besides playing qb pretty talented

g'morning!

nemo, aero, herb, windy: excellent come-back banter; made me smile!

but remember, coach L was good for a run about every 3 years, when the recruits, the injuries and the basketball gods aligned up good at our non-basketball school

- the 3-year timetable got messed up when the combo of NCAA vs. hewan + FBI false rumors that were not allowed to be aired & cleaned, wiped out a full class of coach L

. . . which has meant not enough bodies in the program; not enough bodies for good rotation play (tired at the end in games where the opposition has a deep bench; i.e. the entire ACC); and particularly, not enough healthy bodies for good practices, where you build, for ex., better assist-habits

- then you have the situation, like last night, where both of our bigs, gak & miller, are out injured, so FSU gets to clean up on the boards
. . . so many 2nd chances hurt our rather decent inside presence

alpine

BUT:

- L's last class was money: wong & beverly may not be one-and-done material, but they look to me as good as lonnie walker did

- walker brings a fun tornado energy . . . which at the moment, is unfortunately, so wild, he's still hurting his own team a lot; and his shot is still not going down
. . . but when L has time to groom his energy, watch out

- haven't seen anything about the next class yet; not even sure if there's already bodies that given their "yes" to our program, but we comin'


. . . plus, a 3rd cousin of mine has an uncle, who's 4th cousin has an aunt that has a cousin, who's married to coach L . . . so he's my homie!

Old Skool

The second trip on the more sane section was fun too.
I been down a couple more times but that first trip with you skool and Ocala was great..kinda like your first beer with your school pals.

Yeah, I've done the French Broad since then, but it doesn't compare. Like riding a dime-store pony and an Arabian

I agree that the Canes struggled rebounding yesterday, but the problem with this team is that they are last in the ACC in rebounding. Even with MILLER healthy, they still struggled rebounding. The Canes aren’t very good at rebounding, and that is who they are.

The Canes are also at the bottom of the ACC in most defensive categories, and they are also at the bottom in assists and assist-to-turnover ratio.

I like some of the talent on the team, but I am not sure they play like a real “team “ on both ends of the floor this season. I think the Canes have some talent, but it’s practically impossible to win games in the ACC or at any college level when you have miserable team stats like this.

windy - i think i'm not being clear

- i love the stats you bring up and i totally agree, that we are below ACC average in everything; sometimes we're even the bottom of the barrel
. . . rebounds & assists are classic examples

- where i disagree with you and seemingly everyone else, who posts about BB, is
(1) the CAUSE of this plight (see below) and
(2) i think coach L has them playing BETTER than they actually are
. . . despite all the bottom stats, they've only been blown out about 5x; mostly from top 10 teams and usually injuries played a major part
. . . whereas they beat illinois, beat 3 ACC teams, came very close to an FSU upset the first time but lost in OT, etc.
. . . they're definitely a bottom team, but they have fight and chutzpah

- regarding point #1 above: i do NOT think coach L's recruitment and/or player development is the problem, so getting rid of him is not the fix
- recruiting-wise, remember, as a non-basketball school, he still brought in dewan, lonnie & bruce a few years ago
. . . and despite last year, he brought in a very good frosh class this year
. . . but like i've repeated ad nauseum, he had an entire recruiting cycle taken away, so that we do not have a single non-redshirt sophomore!!!

- development-wise; i always see improvement from his players year to year


bottom-line: they need to have 2 more good recruiting cycles to make up for the FBI-bust, and they will be good again (assuming injuries don't keep killing us)

Never have but have heard that it is WICKED GOOD!

I am up for that one year.

43-29 halftime
. . . a not-so-great duke team putting the canes women away in another frustrating game
. . . you want to call for heads, meier's seat should be warm
. . . canes must own their own travel agency, cause no team has travelled as much as this womens team

oh well, time to hang in there
. . . could be worse: i could be watching cars or horses or dogs running around a track (snore)

BigWindyCane1

Alpine,

It’s not that I think Coach L should be on the hot seat, I am just saying that in my opinion, he could do a better job recruiting and coaching players who play good team offense and defense.

I give Katie Meir a break this because she lost Beatrice Mompremier to injury, and she was a preseason All American and ACC player of the year. She also lost Laura Cornelius, who decided to forgo her Senior season to play pro basketball in Europe

alpine

70-51 duke with 3 minutes left for those holding their breath

i'm kind of disgusted . . . really don't like the lady canes team this year and i'm not seeing enough growth in the juniors and redshirt sophmores

Reggie Wayne on trying to keep Andre Johnson from getting on the field


“Me and Santana Moss were starting receivers. We had our own substitution. When you got tired, you tapped your helmet. Then the backup comes in. Well, I had Andre Johnson behind me. I ain’t tapping the helmet because I ain’t getting back in there.

I hurt my ankle. (Former receivers coach) Curtis Johnson was like, ‘Reggie, come out.’ ‘No! I got this (Coach).’ I’m not letting him in the game. That was our motto. If you got hurt, your bad because the guy behind you is probably better than you anyway.”

Where did they all go?
I noticed what Marve said about transfering to a school who ran a spread, just like he ran in high school. To bad we didn't jump on the band wagon 10 years ago but naturally our arrogance got in the way of forward progress.

Soup, u keep any records of when people joined the blog.
I was sitting here the other night trying to figure when I hopped on the canespace train. Seems like it was 2010 or 11.
I remember calling Jaboney Harris color blind on here.

Herbie...sorry no records of when people joined.

But what a long strange trip it's been.

I still remember how stoked and proud I was of and for you that day.

I see by my post I was just coming in from some outside adventure,there is still nothing as satisfying as being outdoors.

SWEET!
Can't wait to start checking here everyday instead of that SS site for INSIDE Cane info.
Great job 86... you do your Alma Mater and its fans a great service. (77 is proud to be a brother alum... and apparently quite a bit older alum as well.)
Great work... it's a groundswell of support like this that brings great Karma to our team and their success this season!

Same here Solar! Here's MY first post on the (then) NEW Blog. 😂
13 years ago? Seems like only yesterday... Way to go SOUP!👏🏼🙌🏼

alpine

just did a deep dive into canespace history

- really enjoyed the opening blogs & solar's article back in the days before canespace got electricity and in-house plumbing

- i recognized a few names including 1 or 2 i used to think were good, like "pb" and "esteban"
. . . and a couple still on here, like cgnc, dallas, hassan and omg, i mean ogv

- but as you scroll, you can almost here an old, melancholy folk song playin' "where have all those bloggers gone, ... long time passing"

- those who are still here, congrats . . . and keep on keepin' on

Go Canes!!

Great job 86.

13 years is a long time to do anything much less run a blog. So many good times and good people along the way have made it all worth it. Thanks to all of the Canespacers who have hung in there through thick and thin and all of the turmoil along the way. Here's to thirteen more GOOD years!

I respectfully disagree. The best takes on Space was The Truth. His posts had sportwriters reading Space to glean info they couldn't find out on their own. The guy was so deep inside you'd have thought he was a cardiologist.
