Nice article 86!

TonyCane

I hope this is not the end Tom, but if so I will miss all of you.

Stay safe, and go Canes!

JCane

Thx for everything over the years, Tom.

If this is indeed the very last day of the blog, I want to say goodbye to all of you who made this site great.

Tnank you 86/Soup/Tom for your time, effort, knowledge, humour and common sense to keep this thing affloat and interesting for so many years.

I wish it would go on, but having run a sports fan site myself (which I gladly handed over to the next guy after 12 years), I can see all the reasons why Soup came to the point where he decided to let it go.

I'm a avid non-user of FB / Twiter /Insta & Co., so this is it for me. I'll be missing this site and the great people who made me think, made me wiser or made me laugh out loud. To all those who mostly brought hate and bitterness: It's never too late to get a life.

Love & peace & stay save everybody - greetings from Germany!

I’m sure hoping Pope has a huge breakout year! We need to show that offense is fun, we can score points and of course win
Then some of these guys will stay home!!
On a side note: 2 4 star DB’s from south Florida both spurned us and went to Nebraska! Yes, Nebraska! Their dB coach and recruiter is a guy named T fisher - maybe we should try to get him on board! (I know gray has already entered the portal, but the point is still the same)

Got a good feeling 3 months out. This covid crap is stalling our MO. Slam course will have to do for the offense. Learn on the fly. Guys who were supposed to be's need to step up, especially Pope. He was supposed to be all that and a box of chocolates and has played like melted chocolate.

I know it's STILL May... but I can't help but wonder what the College Football season will end up looking like this year...
I HOPE (🤞🏼), we get to play our full schedule, and they are ALL televised, (with or without "on location" fans.)Too many people are thinking this Covid thing is over... they are very wrong.
Let's Go CANES!🙌🏼

Excellent post! And I fully agree

Roach me too! I want to be so excited but in the back of me mind, I see the miserable losses we took to end the year and more importantly that manny didn’t step up! However, We should all be excited this time of year

PS nice article on ‘inside the u’ about 3 star guys who outplayed their star ranking

roachcane77

Outdated technology or not, I still prefer THIS version of Canespace.

Yeah Aero. If Manny D, and Blake J can't pull it off THIS year, they need to start looking for jobs at Temple. (ESPECIALLY B. James!)

I'm feeling pretty good about this season at THIS point though!😉🙌🏼

AeroCane

How about us winning and putting up points then maybe they rethink their options.

Yes!

Disclaimer - I still have major doubts with manny and Blake Baker!

HerbieIbis

That was me Aero but that doesn't look like it will hold true, especially the 3 five star players in the area. Maybe if things don't get better sooner than later, we can revisit that option.

What I also said was, these zeroes might figure out, that staying at home and playing in the low level ACC, it will be easier to reach the final 4 than playing in the SEC. We basically just have to navigate Clemson at the present time and UNC who is coming.

AeroCane

I think someone on here stated this before but I think with everything going on, more recruits and their parents will want to stay closer to home

Henry gray 4 star DB who just enrolled at Nebraska is in the portal already citing family reasons - he was once committed to the U

AeroCane

Gotcha! Yes, to those 20 or so including myself, it is worth it and we appreciate you very much!

I’m sorry 86 - am I missing something
I thought VA posted something about music and you told him ‘it’s not a music blog’
Is that what’s got him upset? Jeez! VA, get over it (if that was it) and come back!

Yeah, that was it. Then he went nuclear for no good reason making wild claims but hey I forgave him because we ALL have our moments including me.

So this on going nonsense is just another reason to let the blog go. The technology is outdated and the majority of people who are worth it is about 20-30. Is that worth the time and effort?

HerbieIbis

We need to be at least in the early 50's with that count. Only winning and putting pts. Up will solve that.
Half and half should guarantee us 9 to 10 wins. Up grading the oh line talent is a must. We need an elite LB. We need to keep DT talent stocked and consistently have an above average QB.
To get up there with Bama, OSU , Clemson and LSU we need to get to 50 to 55.
Clemson is close to that. It's been a steady climb but what has got them over the hump is great QB play.

AeroCane

Big windy - I saw that. Awesome

On a basketball note, Shane Larkin was named player of the year for European basketball

AeroCane

Great info Tony and I agree!
A great season is huge!
Otherwise, possibly starting over with a new coach.

TonyCane

Looks like j williams is getting close to a decision
Huge for us if we can get him; immediate upgrade for 1 season at left tackle thereby helping king and the offense; it also gives Isaiah walker a year to get ready; let’s hope.

Hope so. I'm generally against robbing the future for the present, but in this case the upside is really strong. A 11-1 season will go a long way to solidifying our recruiting for 2021 and be a springboard for the future. Talent-wise, we're closer than we've been in a decade.

TOTAL FOUR/FIVE STAR PLAYERS ON ROSTER:
2007: 41 (overall roster of 77 players)
2008: 41 (overall roster of 85 players)
2009: 38 (overall roster of 72 players)
2010: 39 (overall roster of 84 players)
2011: 30 (overall roster of 79 players)
2012: 21 (overall roster of 82 players)
2013: 25 (overall roster of 74 players)
2014: 25 (overall roster of 76 players)
2015: 27 (overall roster of 83 players)
2016: 26 (overall roster of 76 players)
2017: 27 (overall roster of 77 players)
2018: 34 (overall roster of 81 players)
2019: 35 (overall roster of 77 players)
2020: 40 (overall roster of 78 players)*

*King and Roche reclassified as 4 stars

1st..for the 29th

Left out ( win ) the most important part.

I was in the end zone at that Ohio game and watched that sorry as ref pull out the flag way after the play was over. The Bastard stole it from us.

Harry Miller

Herb you hit it right on with your football comments. All we have to do is and they will come.
Only a basketball fan if the canes are playing and appreciate the recruiting information. Would love to see them do really well.

Mrs, VA Cane

I told VA what you said, and he said thank you very much for the thoughts. He said he had checked out and felt it would not be right to ever go back; he has very deep principles.

He did say please tell all the blog he has great admiration and respect for everyone on here, and he loves each like family....and families sometimes disagree.

Best to all of you from me and VA.....he talks so highly of each of you....sounds like great bunch of people....like family. Sorry the blog is ending; my VA loved it and read it everyday for as long as I can remember!

Blessings and Godspeed from the VA family...goodbye now!

roachcane77

That about sums it up for now. Kids are committing early. Probably will be a ton of Decoms later. We have to win and put effing points on the board.

Yes... Agree 100%... Winning... and winning BIG, will solve most of our recruiting woes!

Yoop,
Got bent over got that yellow sum bitch stuffed straight up our azz, if u smell what The Herb is cooking!

YooperCane

ESPN is airing the Miami vs Ohio state Fiesta Bowl game at 8. Like anyone would care, especially if you are a Miami fan. It should be called the “Miami got fucked” bowl game.

Man that crisp $100 bill Soup has to hand over to me is going to be awesome!

Posted by: pb | May 28, 2020 at 05:03 PM

I have a crispy, new one stored in the safe.

Quite prepared to hand it over!

Good Stuff 40 Minutes Of L! Go Canes!

The Word From The Herb

Soup,
Saw where u asked about our other needs for the football team.
QB, unless we flip Milroe, who is committed to Texas, it will have to be a late bloomer or portal.
CB. Currently we have or will have 6. Numbers are to low. We have a couple committed but Curtis really hasn't played much corner. We need to bring in 3 to 4.
RB. We need to bring in 2 but unless it's the right guy, one will have to do.
Safety one or 2. They want Kinchens and we should get him.
OH Line, pretty close to being done. If another tackle wants in like Tristen Leigh from Virginia or JC Lathem they'll take 5.
DL looking for probably 2 DE's and and at least 2 DT's. Everywhere I've read they keep saying Collins is going to flip to Florida. Been saying that for 3 months, so I don't know what he's waiting on. Want Leonard Taylor and it would take a miracle at this point but if we could swing Collins and Taylor look out for the future.
LB. No big timers, all 3 stars as of right now.
William's is a kid they want but where does he end up playing. 6'5 and 210 safety right now.
Terrel Lewis and Javion Hood are verballed else where.
WR, we have none but plenty available. Probably looking to take 3. George, Alexis, Brinson, Yulkeith Brown and a kid from Lousiana Malik Nabors who is a 4 star are the main guys they are after.
Jason Marshall is a 5 star DB, that doesn't show much interest and Jacory Brooke's is a 5 star WR that verbed to Bama. Lot of talent that as it looks now we are going to miss out on. A lot of Cruits have said they want to see how they perform. Up to that offense. The defense should be righteous. That about sums it up for now. Kids are committing early. Probably will be a ton of Decoms later. We have to win and put effing points on the board.

Alpine and OGV are the basketball lovers. Got to rep all sports.
Football and baseball for The Herb.

Thx for the article
I’m not a basketball fan - baseball and football for me
