ESPN latest protection has Miami going 6-6
Guess they haven't read about the coming of Lashlee and King.


Terrance M Sullivan

Thanks Aero! Comcast/Xfinity and ACC Network needs to get carriage deal worked out ASAP! Everyone else has a carriage deal done!

AeroCane

Glad you enjoyed TSully
I’m Comcast and I don’t think I get the acc channel

Terrance M Sullivan

Loving The Miami ACC Takeover! Should have swapped out Only Bowl Win in the past 14 Years our win over Top 15 West Virginia in December 2016 in Orlando instead of our win last year against Louisville! Other than that great stuff! I really love the ACC Network especially in these Quarantine Times!

wad up aero?

I didnt mean to imply we are going to get 9 and 10 wins seasons back to back in a minute.

Remember I have said for ten years we will always be a 8 win once in awhile 10 win program.
Everybody jumped in my shyt for not being a 12 percent orange and green glasses guy for years and years then the reality of it set in.

I think we are in the best shape to get to 9 wins and maybe a 10 win season better now that i have in years though.

stay safe bruh

He’s still the same head coach, that couldn’t take the bull by the horns and lost to a terrible GT team, Duke, Louisiana Tech and let’s not forget FIU!

Posted by: AeroCane | April 19, 2020 at 12:19 PM

Wait, wait, WAIT!

No way we ever lost to FIU, did we?

AeroCane

Solar
You say back to back 9 to 10 game seasons - let’s freaking beat temple first and then head to 9 plus wins and then we have to decide who will our qb be in 2021? Unless we get a transfer qb (very likely if 2020 plays out well for king and lashee)
In other words, with manny as our HC, let’s take no one for granted and take every game like it’s a NC game! He’s still the same head coach, that couldn’t take the bull by the horns and lost to a terrible GT team, Duke, Louisiana Tech and let’s not forget FIU!
I’m still in the prove it to me stage - his first year wasn’t bad, it was a horrendous embarrassment to the players, school and fans!

solarcane

pb,

Good points about how important Lashlee is to our immediate success.
I feel how he develops the next two quarterbacks after King leaves will also determine if we are legit.

We win 9 or 10 games in back to back seasons I think kids will line up and better yet stay commuted.

The next long term change Diaz needs to make is having leaders stay through their senior year.

HerbieIbis

We have to many holes on the staff as far as recruiters.
Fields, Banda and to some extent Hickson. They sent Patke up North to scour for all the top 3 stars. Him, Rumph and Stroud are Cee type recruiters.
The oh line coach will be good,, whose name has slipped me.

Aero, the defense Is missing a dominant Dee tackle and Lb. Silvera could be the guy up front but hasn't shown it yet. Huffington could be the dominant Lb we need. All I know is that we need to bring in better talent at the Lb position. To many so so players.

pb

Not worried about recruiting, it's still early and there are a million kids locally that are still committed.

As far as Mack Brown goes, he's done a great job of riding momentum in order to lock down his state. That's all fine and good but North Carolina has never been a feeder state for us. We may pick up a kid or two now and then but overall...shrug.

Imo if King and especially Lash are who we think they are, talented offensive kids are going to be beating down our door trying to get on board by midseason.

Right how we have absolutely nothing positive to show an offensive recruit. Once we do that we will be more than fine.

AeroCane

I’ve said this before
Love mannys offensive moves but he’s too stubborn on the defensive side / if he wasn’t firing Blake, he should of at least got rid of Patke, rumph and the lb coach
Rumph is a good coach but terrible recruiter; lb recruiting is terrible and the play has not improved; Patke is just plain overmatched when it comes to coaching and recruiting
If manny made those changes, along with the offensive changes, I’d be extremely happy right now.
Our defense was not very good last year- spout stats all you want, but whenever the D needed that important stop or turnover, we couldn’t get it - changes needed to be made on that side as well

Harry Miller

Thanks VA, you can always shear anything I say with you Mom. My Great Grandson ,Oden has taken a great turn for the better. He now weighs 5 lb 10 oz, opening his eyes now, kicking his legs about and my grand daughter thinks he waved goodbye to her last night.

I am so blessed to be able to be in such a great frame of mind. I new he was being looked after from above. I believed that with all my heart. Because I believe.

I can't wait to meet you someday along with other Cane fans. We need to get this season going and start a winning streak. I believe we can do it even with this delay. Once we get it to gather.
Wish we had not missed those practices, that could hurt our start.
Love all my Cane's family and stay safe everyone.

HerbieIbis

Over on 247 sports, it says Miami has had 112 decomits since 2012.
Mack has scooped up most of the 4 stars in the state of N.C. where these kids use to leave the state, they are now staying.
It will be iffy if we pass them in 4 stars. The Herb has said this before but if we want to get to the top of the mountain, we have to being in at least 14 to 16 4 stars or better annually.
Our problem hasn't been getting 4 stars to verbal, it's keeping them. In 2o20 class we had 5 four star Wr's decomit.

solarcane

ACC network all Miami Hurricanes all day Sunday if you happen to be stuck at home for some reason

UMike

Solar, going 7-6 with a championship coach and coaching icon (even if maybe overrated) and keeping that same staff is much different then then a rookie coach who fired his whole offensive staff after the season.

If King kills it, it will help our QB recruiting.

You do the same my friend

As long as Blake James is our AD UNC is going to be trouble for us. FIFY :-)

Posted by: CGNC | April 18, 2020 at 09:44 AM

A that's What she said that is absolutely correct.

solarcane

UMike

UNC was 7 6 last year and they still got 11 4 star recruits.

I agree We will get more 4 star recruits when we start winning.

I also believe Lashlee will be a head coach somewhere else within three seasons if he turns th U around.
King is only going to be here one year.
UNC turns out NFL caliber qbs now, we not so much.

I think the new offense will be awesome if we can run it.

Stay safe Mike

Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | April 18, 2020 at 12:20 PM

Where do I even begin?

BigWindyCane1

UNC has a proven QB and an OC that recruits want to play with. UNC has a very good coaching staff and showed a lot of potential last season. Although UNC’s roster has a lot of holes on offense and defense, the coaching staff did a great job keeping them prepared.

The Canes play UNC at home this season. If the Canes want to move up the recruiting rankings, they need to win that game, and frankly, all home games. There are no excuses.

UMike

Come signing day Miami will have more 4-stars then UNC, I'm not worried about that. Diaz staff changes, especially the style of offense and maybe more importantly the non-coaching hires, will pay dividends in recruiting, especially south Florida. We will score and we will win games, when we win they will come.

CGNC

PB good find on that article. Of course none of the networks mention it because well, that would be bad for ratings - surely not as fascinating as that Cuomo guy living in the basement. SMH

Out-coach.

Out-recruit.

Any other questions?

solarcane

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. Nope, it’s Mack Brown, crashing the 2021 college football recruiting rankings one four-star commitment at a time.

Don’t look now, but North Carolina may slowly be turning into a football school.

With two more commitments on Friday, Raneiria Dillworth and Jared Wilson, North Carolina has jumped Clemson in the 2021 recruiting rankings on 247Sports all the way to No. 2 behind only Ohio State. With those two pledges, the Tar Heels now have 11 four-star commitments and three three-stars.

The 11 four-stars that North Carolina currently has committed matches that of Ohio State but the main difference between the Tar Heels’ and Buckeyes’ classes is that the latter has three five-star pledges as well.

Brown has done a fantastic job, even in the midst of a pandemic, to secure top-notch recruits and the Tar Heels’ average player rating of just under 92 is impressive considering the program is two years removed from the Larry Fedora era when it seemed like North Carolina was at the bottom with no light at the end of the tunnel.

What a job Brown has done — arguably the biggest coaching hire in the ACC in recent memory.

solarcane

Mack Brown UNC football recruiting killing it
number 2 in the country for 2021

they passed Clemson Alabama and everyone else in the country except Ohio State
pretty damn amazing for a basketball school.

PB,
Thanks for sharing the positive COVID19 news. I have to try to stay positive with everything that is going on.

We are Canes! If there is one thing we Canes football fans over the last two decades know how to do, and that is stay positive no matter what!

Speaking of positive news, it’s great to see the Dow Jones bounce back this week. My IRA was suffering for a while there.

This too shall pass....I think we can slowly open up in some places but we can still be smart. I just want good for all....while I do not think a lot of Red China or Iran....i wish no bad on their people...we all need to pray for others and their loved ones.

I hope we will play this year....We are all diehards who want to see the New Canes...it may be different or not....but I want to see them and pull for them to win!

Be Safe God bless each of you! Harry how is the youngster doing? Prayers for him and family...you are a wise man whose posts always make one feel good about life! Thank you sir!

What's up gang?

Praying for my Canespace family in my daily quiet time.

These are the days many conspiracy theories, personal opinions, political allegiances, and general bull shyt are going to be expressed in the media, at the grocery store, by people you know, people you trust, and people you know have no clue what they are talking about.

There are a lot of knowledgeable doctors and medical personnel and there are just as many know it alls.
Be aware of what the person's motives are, how your well being actually matters to them before you accept as fact what they are saying.
Use common sense when you read and hear information.

Most of all do everything you can to keep you and your loved ones safe no matter how uncomfortable,stressful and inconvenient the coming days are.
I love all of you and pray for you

Oh we definitely will defeat this B.S., it's just a matter when we finally have it under control. Amazing how some crap like this comes around about every 10 years or so, of course not to this extreme, but kills thousands of people but we find a cure to at least stem the tide but a lot of cancers we can't.

I TOLD U...that the treatments and anti-viral drugs would come first. Once we have these therapies or inteventions where people get sick but don't need hospitalization or ICU or die WE ARE GOOD TO GO!!!

Just like HIV used to be a death sentence now it is just something people live with.

I agree 100%

Also, IraqiCane, you are also spot on. No one should get it twisted -- medical professionals are using Hydroxychloroquine (HC), and HC is definitely effective.

With all of the clinical trials going on and the various treatments, we can defeat this COVID-19 pandemic.

IraqiCane

Donald Trump’s bold gamble on hydroxychloroquine (HC) appears to be paying off. Medical professionals in New York tell Judicial Watch that doctors battling the pandemic are increasingly reporting benefits from the drug. They’re prescribing it for themselves, for patients, and for frontline personnel.

https://www.judicialwatch.org/investigative-bulletin/trumps-winning-coronavirus-bet/

But you know no one can make any money off of drugs that have been around for 50 years. So we definitely need a new vaccine.

Many years ago, my Pop had the art teacher at my HS who we were friends with do a copy of this in old English on parchment....say 74...46 years its been over my desk in every place I ever lived...read it daily...it reminds me of Dad...and defines any endeavor I attempt. Its cool and easily applied to current events....read it and think...

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

― Theodore Roosevelt

- the question is: how long can you lock down; can we really do this economically & socially all the way until a vaccine is ready, if that takes a year or more (which it probably will)

This is my point: You can't for much longer because the entire social and economic fabric of both governments, countries and society will all unravel eventually.

As I indicated previously, and Old Skool and I agreed, there are several anti-viral drugs and treatments will be available sooner than later and way before a vaccine can be determined to be effecitive, mass poduced, distributed and administered.

The existence and use of these drugs will be the key so that even IF infection rates remain steady the treatments will make the risk much less, the hospitalizations and the deaths will be way down if not non-existant.

The next step is the vaccine.

unfortunately, things like sporting events & cultural events (concerts), will be some of the last for people to return to (rightly so)

In the end the ratio % of those people exposed who were significantly impacted will be very low.

Posted by: 86Cane | April 16, 2020 at 12:46 PM

just need to say again
. . . you are right, BUT:

- as northern italy found out, if too many people get sick AT THE SAME TIME, then people who could have been saved wind up dying; not enough of everything, medically-speaking = the death ratio rises significantly

- THAT is the main idea behind trying to slow the curve . . . and also trying to be aware that there are many people younger than 60 who are in danger
. . . certain health conditions, particularly respiratory issues (including allergies), diabetes, cancer/chemo, etc. seem to be problematic

- the question is: how long can you lock down; can we really do this economically & socially all the way until a vaccine is ready, if that takes a year or more (which it probably will)

- the wife of a good friend living in nyc just lost her VERY beloved 101 yr. old father (not to the virus) and neither she nor her sisters could join him at the end
. . . another friend (french) could not go back to france when her mother died

- that type of pain is happening all over now . . . but i still don't think the usa is really prepared for a large spike in corona-virus illness
. . . tightrope walking right now requiring lots of studies & information-exchange when thinking about loosening (and in some cases, tightening) restrictions

- i do know that in most of europe, the fast-enough action of "closing down" has been having the desired effect

alpine...welcome back my friend!

Thanks for posting that info. I am willing to be the % of people that were exposed to it, contacted it had minor or no symptoms, is 10-100 times that number. If it is as contagious as they say it is every grocery store worker, most in retail, most food service workers, most gas station employees and almost everyone at Disney, Universal, LegoLand, Sea World and every other hospitality, entertainment or sports facility was exposed. That doesn't even count those in the transportation (planes, trains, buses, taxis and Uber and Lyft) industry.

In the end the ratio % of those people exposed who were significantly impacted will be very low.

good day all, hope all are well.

One of the benefits of no sports...if there is one...is not having to listen to some of the talking heads. I can live without Skip Bayless and his fake stances and takes and Shannon Sharpes Mushmouth and love of Lebron 4ever! Same for whip Colin Cowherd. Golic Golic and Wingo are idiots as is Whimp Greenberg....but I quit listening to them a good while ago.


Thay being said, I am worried for football. I like racing, but with Earnhardt 3 gone since 01, I have curtailed my watching a lot...Daytona Talledega Darlington Bristol are great tracks....but Earnhardt was the last cowboy....so I check in.

Baseball too slow too long....NBA is a horrible sissy girls game.....I never was big on it....but other than a few good players...the rest are horrible compared with the past stars.....who are most of them...nobody.

Looks kinda grim for football.....I just do not know what will happen....I am dying thinking of it...talking to my young guys and college kids a lot...they are worried too! I love it....my blood cells are shaped like little brown oval footballs....but I want everyone in USA to be safe to start living normal again....waiting game eh?


Lets keep chatting and hoping for good things....we will survive and be whole again...prayer...and positive vibrations Mon (tip o da hat to Bob and Rohan...miss Bob love Rohan!)

I am bz appraising...lender just called wants water4front inspection on Lake Gaston in VA/NC...working on 3 others so I can be out...in the3 wilds!!....thinking of Herbie finding them in the territories...and Soup listing and showing them!!! you guys would love the wilds of VA!!!!! LOL

- on the one hand, too much shut-down/shut-in definitely increases risks of depression, domestic violence, suicides
. . . obviously if the economy totally collapses, these and other types of problems multiply

- that said, the usa is still woefully unprepared to deal with this pandemic as far as medical supplies and testing capacity and it's far too early to have any type of optimism regarding 2020 sports . . .
- there is also more & more info coming out that seems to point at this virus attacking many different organs ... problems not just with the lungs, but also with the heart, kidney, liver, digestive system are being reported . . . meaing both death reports and later damage to those who get sick from the virus might be worse than we think
. . . we need more time, so that science can fill in more of the blanks


which is a shame; nothing i want more than to see coach L field a real team after finally having enough time to get off the canvas from the knock-out blows of the NCAA & FBI (hoping for a little trash talk with aero & nemo!)
. . . not to mention the excitement around our football team

. . . i'm even interested in seeing whether or not katie meier can get the shyt-show of a woman's bb-team moving forward again


instead, it's probably gonna be groundhog day for quite a while, with more cases reported, with more deaths, in more places, with help "just around the corner", etc.

“Whoa Nelly” to quote Keith Jackson

My comment was in response to whether there was going to be a college football season. My point was that impacts whether from players hitting one another, hitting the ground or from hands compressing a chest will likely expel viral particles from the lungs faster, further and in greater numbers than every day non-impact activities. Consequently, greater precautions or a vaccine must be in place before football is played.

Without fast and accurate testing or a miracle vaccine ... No.

Posted by: Old Skool | April 15, 2020 at 02:28 PM

There you go again!

You could just have easily said: WITH fast and accurate testing and with anti-viral teatments approved and a miracle vaccine...YES!

But you didn't have it in you, did you? You look for problems and claim "There it is", but you do NOT seek solutions. Here are some things I suggest that you consider:

1. Over 12 anti-viral medications that are already in clinical trials hold the greatest hope for a quick re-opening of the job market and sports arenas.

2. Around 97% of people are not going to die from this virus right now no matter what and IF anti-viral teatments can reduce that to well under 1% life will return as normal SOONER than later and well BEFORE a vaccine. Anti-viral drugs (if successful, have hope) will reduce the severity of sypmtoms, increase recovery time and eliminate many hospitalizations in most cases except in the most severe cases or succeptable people.

3. Most healthy people under 65 are not going to go to the hospital or be on an incubator or die from this virus. As has already been demonstrated they will get sick and recover.

4. If the economy opens and sports events are open for those under 55 (80% of all fans except here on Canespace LOL) then it could very well happen this Fall.

5. Please in your next comment quote the number of people who have had COVID-19 and recovered already. Can't wait to see it!

6. IF you are advocating is that we shut everything down until a vaccine is available and that is 12-18 months then I disagree.

7. If the people out of work stay out of work for more than 6 months, or 12 months, or 18 months the world will end as we know it. I ain't ready for or going to support that.

Solar,

Here's your feel-good story of the day.

A 99-year-old war veteran who uses a walker has raised millions of pounds for the British National Health Service by walking laps around his garden. BTW a "grafter" is a hard working man in British English.

Canes got a good one with Timberlake. The Canes got some good transfers and recruits coming in. I really didn't like our team this past season, but maybe next season will be better with the infusion of talent.

The players, Coach L and his staff really need to step it up next season.

- by the way, here in west austria, things have been looking up enough that they allowed small shops/businesses to open yesterday
. . . if all goes well, they will soon allow larger ones to open

- traffic slowly picking up (yuck)
. . . i'm realising, that despite the inconvenience we all have to put up with and the VERY serious health & financial issues many are grappling with, i'm gonna be sorry to lose that lazy, sunday feeling
. . . almost expected to see tumbleweeds roll across the main street back a while

soup: very nice article

skool: i like your posts

solar: sorry the european continent sent too much rain your way; had only 1 1/2 days of light rain here the last 3+ weeks and i'm getting tired of spending tons of time each evening watering the garden . . . so many differnt kings of beautiful wild flowers in our lawn i wind up being a softy and watering that too

sports: having a hard time caring about past & future right now
. . . just interested in getting the clear info of when a season can actually start
. . . and like many others, i have the feeling it'll be later than sooner (even if they TRY to start earlier)
. . . but like skool, i'm real willing to be surprised

. . . just wishing it won't wind up slicing an important artery of either the coming canes football or basketball seasons
. . . lots of potential to be special if corona gets it's foot off our chest

Here's Dr. Fauci on the playing baseball this year

"Nobody comes to the stadium. Put them in big hotels, wherever you want to play. Keep them well surveilled … but have them tested, like, every week. And make sure they don’t wind up infecting each other or their family. Just let them play their season out.”

Old Skool

Without fast and accurate testing or a miracle vaccine ... No.

The combination of relatively high infection rates from aerosolized droplets containing the virus combined with hard-hitting physical activity and you're asking for trouble. Imagine all the yelling and intense exhalations from being hit or even hitting the ground. Some hospitals have started to limit the time doing chest compressions for CoVid patients needing CPR because of the risk of spewing viral particles into the air.

As for testing ... right before each game and conceivably before every practice there could be a test-in, like a boxing weigh-in.

The problem becomes if starters test positive and have to be held out, you'll need some significant depth. Games would be a bit like player roulette

Their Is A Stat that says over the past 10 Years our Canes are ranked 89th out of 130 Teams with Games being a 1 Score Game either throughout and in 4th Quarter 7 points or less! To put in perspective Clemson is 5th, Ohio State 3rd, Oklahoma 2nd, Alabama 15th! We have to improve our standing in close Games in this new Decade! Go Canes!

Today they had the audacity to report EIGHT cases and claimed six were imported from other company.

I second that emotion.

1. I'll tell you this much, I'm more of an optimist than you are for the long term. I don't think chaos and anarchy will reign.

2. There's still a lot that's unknown, a lot that's being worked out and experimented on. As answers are uncovered, I think things will improve.

3. Hard work and determination will win out. Our enemy may evolve, but it can't outwork and outthink us.

Posted by: Old Skool | April 13, 2020 at 12:11 PM

1. Don't get it twisted, sister. I did not say that was my prediction for the future, I said that my prediction is that things will get back to normal SOONER that later, not 12-18 months when we have a vaccine as you quoted in the interview. If you think that average Joe is going to sit at home for 12-18 months with no job and nothing to do and that the federal govt (read our taxes) is going to keep paying everybody for that long then you have another thing coming.

2. Agree 100%. At least until a vaccine is created and produced and administered we need treatment drugs to lesson the severity of the infection and the symptoms of the virus. With around 12 drugs already in clinical trials this will hapeen sooner than later, maybe in the next 30 days or so. That will allow a return to normalcy WAY before we have a vaccine.

3. Agree 100%. We have the will, the way and the ability to overcome this and we will, SOONER than later. OTHERWISE you get chaos and anarchy which is what NONE of us want, right?

Conferences maybe because they can be virtual and businesses are going to see how much money they can save with more remote capabilities and less office space.

Solar glad you are ok.

Hi guys,
Hope everyone is well
Thanks VA,
Wild night up here last night sheltered in place with 70 mile per hour sustained winds, rain, limbs, roof shingles, etc. Ricocheting off the house.

We are fine, been out helping the neighbors cut limbs and stuff.

People down in South Georgia took a pretty bad beat down.
To beat Covid19 only to lose your life in a tornado,heartbreaking.

Stay safe, give thanks, help those that need you

Old Skool...I see you fall squarely on the side of the naysayers and doomsdayers? I do not. Have hope, faith and confidence that we will return to normalcy sooner than later. If not just say F*** it and enjoy what time you have left because anarchy and chaos are the only alternatives.

Posted by: 86Cane | April 13, 2020 at 09:20 AM

I don't know about that. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than continually disappointed. Unlike Han Solo ("never tell me the odds') I'd rather know the odds both good and bad.

I'll tell you this much, I'm more of an optimist than you are for the long term. I don't think chaos and anarchy will reign. I think we'll adapt to whatever comes, probably in increments, probably in surprising ways.

We certainly survived the last pandemic (1918 Spanish flu ... 675,000 American dead out of a population that's one third the size of our current one).

There's still a lot that's unknown, a lot that's being worked out and experimented on. As answers are uncovered, I think things will improve.

In the meantime, I'll lean toward Vince Lombardi's thinking "Hope is not a strategy, fear is not an option." Hard work and determination will win out. Our enemy may evolve, but it can't outwork and outthink us.

We will beat this thing sooner than later. After that China needs to pay dearly for what they have done.

Even their latest act, locking down what could be hugely important medical research in an effort to continue the charade of lies their leadership has rained down on the world from day one, is disgusting.

My prediction is in the next 5 years we will see a massive shift away from them, especially in fields like medicine and products like phones and computers, where our intellectual property has been ravaged for years

Well said Harry. continued prayers for your young man! I read one of your responses to my wife, I hope you are ok with that. Being a great mom, she was visibly moved. We wish continued progress,success and positive results for your family.

Solar thinking of you in the deep south hope you and family and neighbors are ok.

I am certain that ALL the people we elect....no party just people...all of them...did not take heed to early warnings...yes we still would have struggled...but might have avoided more death and discomfort. It is insight to a system that is failing and lagging and has been for a long time...for all of us! Our leaders are wrapped up in greed and bloating their bank accounts...not doing the peoples will. This is Him telling us to wake up....and correct so much failure from the people we THINK can lead. Again no party...people. We must all think....and VOTE for good people....we have such poor leadership.They sidetrack us with minor spats that cover their incompetence,lies and veiled shadows and as we chew on the small things they spout, they line their and their pals pockets....and we foot the bill....no party, just people!

May God be with each of you...in a positive way! He is risen....and we can always depend on him for shelter from life's storms. All the best to each of you!
