The real bottom line about every single subject we talk about is what Windy said.
Win a bunch of games in a row games and players have a whole new reason to stay, and recruits have a reason to come to Miami.
We don`t win, players will avoid coming here and those that do will leave as early as possible
just as it ever was, just as it ever was

NEW BLOG IS UP!

I said you made a great point about Miami having the best athletes in football to run from the spread for decades.

I would agree.....Now I grew up running the T, Wing T then pro set in HS. When I started coaching the spread was really not out there...but the veer, Wbone, run and shoot and the I were there. I have always had fast kids so I started doing stuff out of them...line up like pro set I whatever....shift into different formations and run still...but then pass of of it....a guy I played for early on had me QB out of the gun...as I was short...we spread 2 each side and have at it...this is like 7th grade....so while I ran a pro and T early on....and still do to fool people....I love a wide open run and pass....keep em guessing...good point on the blog solar!!!

Kirby Smart says coaches are telling recruits that the SEC is to tough a conference to play in. That's a first. Maybe true if u go to certain schools and are only a 3 star player. Conference is loaded with good teams. Not to many cup cakes.

solarcane

Had a cool football conversation with UM/Georgia fan at Lowes.
He said something that really hit home about us on Canespace awhile back.

He said remember 15 years ago when we would laugh at Boise State and Peterson for running that stupid spread offense when every REAL team ran a pro style offense.

How we would win 9 out of 10 games against that Mickey Mouse crap?

Then he gave me a nod and said how thrilled are Miami fans to have Lashlee bring that Mickey Mouse offense to town, when Miami`s athletes would have won two more championships running it 10 years ago.

VA,
Dog, Da Rayda's will be ok. Have been limited offensively for years. 2 to 3 years ago we had one of the best Oh lines. Still not terrible but the WR's leave a lot to be desired.
Defensively, now that is where they have really sucked. They need sum LB's bad. Dee line has been weak with the pass rush. Chuckie didn't create this mess but slowly tearing it down and building it back up will take 5 years.
U know as well as I do, there is no sure thing in the NFL, no matter how good they were in college. Juedy or Ruggs, who knows. Cb was a reach and hopefully taking basically 3 WR's, I hope they can get one good one. 9-7 would be a good start in the right direction but they are still not good enough to blow anyone out and a lot of close games could go either way. I still see the defense being an albetros.

solarcane

herb,
I think Bandy had some tough home issues he wanted to take care of.
He might be a little bull headed, ingrained in him from having to prove himself a lot because of his size and his playing position.

I think a lot of college football players that come from a less than ideal home life feel tremendous pressure to make things change for their mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers.
It is hard to say what Bandy thought his NFL chances are.

I am sure he thought coming back to play for a 7-6 team and chance an injury like Ammon suffered wasn`t worth it.

The real bottom line about every single subject we talk about is what Windy said.

Win a bunch of games in a row games and players have a whole new reason to stay, and recruits have a reason to come to Miami.

We don`t win, players will avoid coming here and those that do will leave as early as possible

I am an Oakland fan.....Oakland!!! not Vegas!!!

I do not like Gruden, never have....he is not a good coach, he knows nothing about QBs and he cannot evaluate talent hes a fraud con man made for tv....kinda like that guy in Wash.....never mind!!!!!???....they drafted badly....Ruggs was a reach, the corner from OSU....reaches...well I guess thats why wherever we have been since 83...37 years....Oakland LA Vegas....we have been bad....and will remain bad.....give me The Assassin, Dr. Death, Snake, Tooz, Bo and Marcus,

Ed Perry played LS for the Dolphins and after a point, that’s all he did. Miami also has a LS that only did that after Perry for many, many years.

BigWindyCane1

Aero,

I really usually don’t blog about the Dolphins, but I am a Miami fan and I think the Dolphins had a very good draft. Even though they didn’t draft any Canes, they upgraded the talent everywhere on the roster at multiple positions, especially in the trenches, and they got a lot better.

But we will see what happens as the season progresses, but I think Flores will have the Dolphins ready.

I want to like Grier, but he just isn’t the right guy
I will reiterate what I told big windy earlier:

Big windy
No offense but I’d rather hear from objective fans - not the aqua and blue colored glasses fan! Lol

• Besides tua - and it was no brainer not to move up for him
• they should of moved up in the first to pick a ‘better’ prospect than Jackson;
• the CB in the first round was a stretch;
• Hunt would of been there or another top guard at 56 and they could of gotten a top notch running back at 39
• they could of moved up in the second and still got Davis or a top rusher
• with the moves I’ve mentioned, they would of gotten rid of later round excess picks

HerbieIbis

No Solar,u are right about Bandy, he is a kid and had plenty of people to guide him, thru the process about pros and cons. Ultimately, he bet on himself. Realize he has a kid but he has made it this far, one more year to up your draft status wouldn't have hurt.
Now he is in a boat with one paddle. He will get an opportunity but the NFL ain't called the Not For Long league
for nothing!
What we got 12 or 13 verbs and 9 are 3 star. That top 10 ranking won't last for long at this rate.
No matter, we ain't catching the likes of the upper Echelon anyway, Bama, OSU, LSU, Clemson, and Georgia. Florida, Auburn and Texas won't be far behind.
Winning 10 games consistently will solve some of these issues, as well as the new offense BUT u need difference makers and more fours than threes each recruiting cycle to maintain consistency. Like almost double.

U CAN'T MAKE THIS SHYTE UP! DOLPHINS DRAFT A LONG SNAPPER IN THE 6TH ROUND. WHO DRAFTS A LONG SNAPPER? MOST TEAMS DO NOT DRAFT A PUNTER OR KICKER MUCH LESS A LONG SNAPPER!!!

6 (185) Blake Ferguson
Position: Long snapper

School: LSU Tigers

Height: 6-3

Weight: 229 lbs

Comment: Ferguson played in 53 games for the Tigers and was the first long snapper in LSU history to be named a team captain in Tigers football history. He also had a tangential connection to the Dolphins. Ferguson’s brother is Buffalo Bills long snapper Reid Ferguson, who was once coached by now Dolphins special teams coach Danny Crossman.

BigWindyCane1

Garvin was drafted by Green Bay. JT4, Bandy and Pinkney have to try to sign as a UFA or get invited to an NFL camp

Bandy is just trying to do what's best for his family as early as he can.
He's just a kid, he hasn't had the years of life experience we share to make long term decisions.

I just saw we got a commitment from a 3 star athlete:

Beat out App State for him too-at least we beat them in something since they had more guys drafted

AeroCane

I just saw we got a commitment from a 3 star athlete - about 160 lbs and we stole him from the likes of western Kentucky, BC (ok, I’ll give you that one) and Georgia (lol - nope - GA Southern)
Now how is he going to cover a 5 star WR at Clemson, Bama etc
Oh well
Go Manny!

AeroCane

Herb, I agree
It’s going to be real hard for us to compete against the clemson’s, gators, tide, bulldogs etc getting marginal 3 star guys and some 4 star guys while they load up on 4 and 5 star studs
Yes, stars matter and no our coaching is not better than theirs

TheHerb

Why leave school early, if u are tabbed a 5th rounder or later? Why, about to piss their pants to go to the league. Some think they are better than they are. Really, none that left early should have gone. None played as good as the year before. The moral, don't cost thru a season. The pros see and know everything. U ain't getting by with nothing. They need to quit betting on themselves. Put up better numbers as a JR and maybe u move up.
Same with Shaq and Pink, good players, solid but nothing dominating or outstanding.

I can already see how this current class is shaping up. Don't look for us to have a boat load of 4 stars or better. Going after a ton of guys, they know will stick. We will be lucky if we reach 10 four stars or better.

Good for Shaq and deejay

Shaq will only make it IF the jags put him in a position to succeed - play on obvious rushing downs (lol - If such things exist) and do Not play him in coverage or expect him to run sideline to sideline
Good luck Shaq and deejay!

FSU, UF, FAU and FIU all have players drafted before any Canes, and we have four players who declared early (Deejay Dallas, Jeff Thomas, Garvin and Trajan Bandy)?

Aero,
The Dolphins threw up enough smoke screens to get their QB without giving up more picks to move up. If Tua stays healthy, he has the potential to be a top 5 QB in the NFL.

I love the Dolphins three picks on offense (franchise QB Tua and two quality OLs Austin Jackson and Robert Hunt) and three defensive players (CB Noah Igbinoghene , DT Raekwon Davis, and S Brandon Jones) who fit their defensive scheme like a glove.

As for RBs, former Cane Deejay Dallas, UF’s Lamical Perine and Arizona State’s Eno Benjamin are still on the board. and there are still some quality veteran options out there such as former Cane Lamar Miller, Devonta Freeman,Carlos Hyde, Leonard Fournette, etc., if they don’t find a quality RB in the draft.

The Dolphins are clearly the least talented team in the NFL, and they have more holes to fill than any team in the NFL. As far as

AeroCane

Anyone follow the draft?
Grier just doesn’t get it!
Got some good quality but with all his 5th, 6th and 7th round picks, he could of moved up at least once or twice to get a RB (all top 4 were excellent options) and/or a top rusher (DE or LB)
Any thoughts?

I guess Nussmeier is from Texas maybe I have him mixed up with the McLaughin kid maybe he has an LSU offer also.

Ill try and dig up stuff on both

Lashlees boy for 2021

Garret Nussmeir another Georgia HS QB

I think this kid goes to LSU from the articles I read here in Georgia

New Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee began a relationship with Nussmeier while he was at SMU. In a post published on Friday morning, Rivals.com recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman ranked the top six schools pursuing Nussmeier. Miami is listed second behind LSU. The 2020 season could determine his destination.

Nussmeier currently resided in Flower Mound, Texas outside of Dallas where his father Doug, a former NFL QB is currently the QB coach. Nussmeier is the 87th ranked player in the nation, the sixth-ranked pro-style QB and 14th ranked player in Texas in 2021. Miami signed four-star QB Tyler VanDyke in 2020.

The expectation for Nussmeier once the world gets back to a semblance of normal is that he will eventually take a visit to Miami. Spiegelman states that if campus visits had been allowed this spring Nussmeier could have visited Coral Gables. Nussmeier’s status has been rising as coaches have had more time to study video.

2. Miami
Nussmeier has never visited Miami, but that could have been a different story if he were able to make NCAA campus visits this spring. New Canes offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee has developed a strong relationship with Nussmeier dating back to his recent stint at SMU, which is working in Miami’s favor.

Miami is a school the Rivals100 passer wants to see before making a decision.

Nussmeier originally planned to announce what school he was committing to in mid-April. The other QB prospect who is still highly considering the Miami football program is four-star Pro-Style Aaron McLaughlin from Alpharetta, Georgia. McLaughlin is also strongly considering Louisville and North Carolina State.

The Wolfpack are considered the leader to sign McLaughlin. Fifty-six percent of the crystal balls for McLaughlin on 247Sports project the 12th ranked pro-style QB to sign with the Wolfpack. McLaughlin is the 201st ranked player overall and 18th in Georgia. Georgia has been exceptional producing QBs in the last 10 years.

OK some Canes football

Here is Lashlee`s boy for 2022 to come in behind TVD possibly,

also has offer from Alabama, they seem to know pretty good high school qbs.

Solar and pb you are both right. But the fear in people's eyes is because they watch the never ending inundating media that shows every single death which makes it seem WORSE. The other elephant in the room is that we are a very unhealthy society (like most developed countries) with rampant diabetes and obesity. The human body was made to be dynamic and move, and people do less and less of it.

Anybody got a cure for Plantar Fasicitis?
Posted by: HerbieIbis | April 24, 2020 at 12:14 PM

HerbieIbis, I've been through it in both feet as well. Stretching and flexibility exercises was the "eventual" relief for me. BRUTAL pain. I tried sleeping with a foot brace sock thingy on, (similar to the boot), but it only provided "marginal" relief, as often I would wake up with the thing wrapped around my leg in the middle of the night. Those therapy straps where you can sit and pull upward on the toes also help.

My main therapy is to, three of four times a day, use a slant board that I stand on and let my heels drop and just stretch the achilles for a minute or two at a time. If I'm out with the dogs, I'll stand near a step stretching the heels down. It'll clear up for awhile, and then come back, depending on the amount of time I spend on the tennis courts. (Tennis is a non-issue right now, all public courts locked down.) Orthotics also help "some. And I found certain shoes would aggravate the situation, so I would quit wearing those.

I feel for you though, every step is agony.

Good luck.

I started out with the Fresh Linen scent but switched over to Lavendar scent. Pretty nice actually and very relaxing.

Nutritional Facts for Tart Cherry
In addition to the anthocyanidins, tart cherries contain many other nutrients. Tart cherries are high in fiber and potassium. With no fat or sodium, tart cherries also have high amounts of vitamins C, E, A and folic acid. The amounts of beta carotene and thiamin in tart cherries are higher than found in other berries and apples. Tart cherry juice also contains high amounts of the phytonutrients that can help protect against the effects of aging, heart disease and cancer. Before increasing your intake of tart cherry juice, be sure to consult your nutritionist who can help read the labels and ensure that the form of tart cherries is right for you.

Relieve Pain
Tart cherry juice contains phenolics that can have potent anti-inflammatory effects. These substances tend to block two enzymes that produce prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are the compounds that cause inflammation and pain. Very dark cherries such as the tart cherry contain more phenolics than other cherries. Drinking tart cherry juice can act very much like pain medicines such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen. In fact, studies have shown that 400 milligrams of the anthocyanins will relieve pain as well as the well-known drug indomethacin (Indocin).

Turmeric and especially its most active compound curcumin have many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer.

It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.

If you want to buy a turmeric/curcumin supplement, there is an excellent selection on Amazon with thousands of great customer reviews.

It’s recommended to find a product with BioPerine (the trademarked name for piperine), which is the substance that enhances curcumin absorption by 2,000%.

Without this substance, most of the curcumin just passes through your digestive tract.

Ginger does seem to help with painful periods. In one study, more than 60% of women felt that ginger lessened pain.

There's strong evidence that ginger may ease osteoarthritis pain. It may also help with:

Rheumatoid arthritis
Muscle and joint pain
Headache

No, but here are the natural rememdy cures that reduce inflammation such as gout, arthritis and other related afflictions:

1. Black Cherry or Tart Cherry concentrate in liquid (grocery store) and/or powder capsul form from GNC or other providers. I take both.

2. Turmeric (Curcumin) powder with black pepper (for better absorbtion) capsuls. I take one from a company called Seven Nutrition

3. Ginger

For the immune system Elderberry chews with Zinc and Vitamins C and D. Elderberry powder capsuls. Probiotics in various brands of yougurts and powder capsul form. EmergenC brand powder packets to mix with water. They have Immune System Booster one with Zinc, C & D vitamins.

Also take a good multi-Vitamin from a good source such as GNC Mega Men 50 Plus (with Selenium, Lutein and Lycopene)! I do.

solar, thanks for the laughs!

herb, that sukks!
"plantar fasicitis" sounds like the latin name for a major "face plant"

. . . shouldn't a heel problem be something like, "heelacious paincitus"?

Anybody got any ideas on injecting yourself with bleach or laying under a real strong flashlight to fight Covid? sounds pretty reasonable to me.

Ok pb
I wonder how psychological and emotional older people will adopt to being susceptible to "flu" that their parents could shrugoff off at a chipper 65?

Anybody got a cure for Plantar Fasicitis? Had this crap for 6 months and a cortisone shot yesterday. Got a boot, used the ice bottle and nothing works. Had this crap 11 years ago in both heels at the same time. Eventually had the left one operated on. Instant relief.

That's not at all what I'm saying. I haven't seen my 84 year old father, 82 year old mother and 80 year old step-mother in nearly 6 weeks. I want them safe and healthy more than anything.

What I'm saying is this data gives us a clearer picture of what we need to do going forward:

1) Continue to protect older and compromised individuals through self quarantine and proper social distancing.

2) Allow healthy people to begin returning to work in order to get our country and economy restarted in the safest way possible.

Peebster,
thank God Covid is only deadly to old people. Those old farts don't deserve to live and enjoy life like 25 year olds.

That was like saying
Hey we are going to hit everyone in the United States on the knees with a sledge hammer, sure you older people will be crippled for life but you younger folks will just have a limp, so this isn't anything to worry about,

NYC with a staggering 20% infection rate.

That whole city was rotten with this plague.

Makes the crazy death total more explainable.

Posted by: pb | April 23, 2020 at 09:48 PM

A few initial thoughts:

1) New York residents are on top of each other, so to speak. Subways and mass transit serve to emphasize the spread of a infectious disease

2) If the true infection rate is 20%, it means the actual death rate is far, far lower

----------------

That is becoming extremely evident. Very infectious, extremely dangerous to older and/or the immune compromised, diabetics, the obese and those with high blood pressure.

But for younger, healthier people, as deadly or less than the common flue.
