I agree. Ahora es hora de probar Miami Manny Muy Macho. Antes Miami Mark Menos Macho. Ahora ofensiva muchisima mejor y D'Eriq mas que Malik

Harry Miller

To all you Canespacers have a happy and safe 4th of July.
If the same thing happen to us ESPN would be eating us alive. Demanding the death penalty because we have been so bad for so long.

TonyCane

Roach...absolutely right. ESPN would call it a blight on the sport and demand a double secret death penalty, and then sowing UMโ€™s campus with salt.

Well, things aren't looking very favorable now with all of these increasing Covid-19 numbers!๐Ÿ˜ค
I "hope" we still get to have a college football season, cause The Canes D-line is looking AWESOME! All reports are that we should have one of the best pass rushing crews in the nation! And, if our "new" offense can get rolling, we could shock a LOT of people in this country.

Don't know what Mac Bee is tell dem cruits but it must be butter.

I like butter?

He must have a boatload of that sweetened honey cinnamon butter they give out at Sonny's BBQ for their sweet potatoes?

roachcane77

Don't know what Mac Bee is tell dem cruits but it must be butter. UNC just got a verb from the number 6 player in the cunch. CB Tony Grimes. That gives them a whopping 12 top 300. Manny needs to close strong.

It's really proven to be a pretty simple formula at UNC... ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ and free grades, WITHOUT having to attend classes...

Tom,

Isn't that picture of you with Allen Bailey and Drew Rosenhaus from one of our 4-play expeditions?

MLALUMNI1970

One more thing. Thanks 86 for posting my photo every so often, when I came down for a game from Michigan. At the old OB I think.

MLALUMNI1970

Great article SOUP/86. You always seem to clarify what needs to be said, at the right time. When I was at the U, decades ago, (1966-1970), there were the wealthy from the northeast,the frat houses and sororities and then the rest of us. I tried for a sorority, but got denied. Maybe because I was a midwestern Catholic, of above average means, but not rich. After my parents both passed, I found a loan my dad took out, to send me to the U. A 10K loan in 1966. Lots of money back then. Not chump change today either. The U was always expensive, but what a great school. That is why my parents sent me there. As my dad said, to become a well rounded human being, with love and compassion in her heart. But, what do you expect from a daughter of a Notre Dame father, both undergrad and law school. All I can say is GO CANES, and I love 86 and all of you.

AeroCane

7 remaining enrollees are in

Per inside the U
The seven include Miami's top-ranked signee DeLand safety Avantae Williams, a four-star prospect and 44th-best overall player in the class according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
The newcomers also include Champagnat four-star safety Jalen Harrell, Tucker (Ga.) cornerback Isaiah Dunson, Columbus four-star defensive lineman Elijah Roberts, Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek three-star defensive end Quentin Williams, Winter Park three-star cornerback Marcus Clarke, and Miramar three-star safety Brian Balom.

AeroCane

We could use a 5 star stud LB

HerbieIbis

5 star LB from LSU in portal. Soph to be Marcel Brooke's leaving The Tigers. Got the ring and ran.
Be a good pick up. Would have to sit a year but still have 3 to play. From Texas, so might be hard to coax him further away from home.

HerbieIbis

Willie Moises going to Coastal Carolina.

AeroCane

So it looks like 4 stars S Collins and L Taylor are down to the U and gators
5 star athlete williams - down to us and UGA

I agree with tony
Let Donaldson lose weight, heal up, play in 4 games later in the year and come back next year with him, rivers and isiah to anchor the line

GO CANES and everyone be well

TonyCane

Donaldson taking a RS

Posted by: AeroCane | June 24, 2020 at 04:35 PM

I smell the portal in his future. The Canes NEED him this year, for him to take a year off is not being a "team player".

If he ain't smelling what The Rock is cooking (READ: What the new OL coach and the old SC coaches are selling) he may get his big belly and slow feet to stepping on down the road at the end of this year.

I hope I'm wrong but remember where you read it first IF it happens. Go Canes would be crushed!

Posted by: 86Cane | June 24, 2020 at 06:38 PM

Between his weight issues, knee injury, and potential disruption of rehabilitation and strength and conditioning on campus - this is probably the best course for him. MAYBE he's ready to go by the end of the season, but otherwise I think it's better for us to have him help to anchor a line in 2021.

KYcane

Maybe Donaldson realizes he now has a real offensive line coach, theyโ€™ve talked about his future and this will give him quality development time and experience to make it in the league

How do u spell Linegard, SAWFT!

All I said was Donaldson didn't play tackle, he played guard.

The rest was all you Soup.

Posted by: pb | June 25, 2020 at 05:02 PM

Dude, chillax! I know what you said and what I said, it's all good. I read more about the situation and I did not recall hearing that Donaldson had a knee problem/minor surgery and would not be ready by Spring, so red-shirting may make more sense that I originally thought.

Under the RS, he can still play 4 games slectively down the stretch, or the four most important games, however you want to put it, IF needed. I like that option.

As far as the rehab time and the time to lose weight and build stamina, I like it. Being fat and slow is know way to go through life as a football player. As far as being a realtor or selling new homes I found it to not be any impediment or have any negative impact.

The rest was all you Soup.

And Aero, Lingard was hurt a handful of games into his freshman season. Before then he was a 5 Star with offers from every big time program in the country.

Not sure when this great debate took place where you knew he wasn't any good, though you having an absurdly negative take is the least surprising thing ever.

The Herb

I here ya Soup, Donnie needs to lose a few kilos. Probably still not close to being ready. Whether he comes back next year or not, we will be fine. Probably play near the end of this season.
Would have a weight clause, like maybe 320 to 325, if above then pine city.

Funny you say that
I was the first to say the sane thing about lingard and โ€˜GoCanesโ€™ thought I was crazy! Lol

Hopefully he works hard and loses weight and comes back very strong next year!
A line in 2021 could include 4 stars isiah Walker, Donaldson and Rivers

Great article, and autobiography there SOUP.

Well done as well, intermingling the "diversity education mandate" with YOUR life story and thoughts. (By the way, the only way I could afford to attend The U ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผin the 70's was via tuition remission as well, my mother was a research nurse for the U School of Medicine at Jackson Memorial.)

Great article, unfortunately most of this crap is politically driven. Who let's people take over 6 city blocks of a downtown area, spray paint everything in sight, bust windows etc and do nothing about it. Imagine if you had a business in that area, what would u do? The police can't help.
I grew up in the boys club in the mid 60's where it was diversified. It helped toughen me up and made me a better athlete, especially in sports.
My roommate in college was black and was like a brother to me. I worked in a recreation center for over 19 years, where the first 3 years I would say it was 98% black. It was tough at times and could be dangerous but team sports brought us together and sports, when it starts back up, will bring us together again.
This, what is happening now is like a perfect storm, The pandemic, no sports, the murder of Mr. FLOYD and an election year. In most of the big cities, which happen to be democratic run, they are doing very little to stop what is taking place.
What they don't realize, is u have build a solid foundation from the bottom up. You don't go straight to the top.
Got to secure your neighborhoods first.
Lastly, some neighborhood in Charlotte had a block party and were having a good time but somebody was hit by a car while they were showing off doing donuts in the road, as the EMT'S got their somebody started shooting, people were shot and run over as well. 4 people are dead, either shot or run over. This happened to be a black on black crime. I heard not one peep about it on the big news channels. They had a small march the next day and one lady hit the nail on the head when interviewed, we have to make our neighborhoods safer. They're were a couple hundred people there and were begging for someone to step forward with information but as of yesterday, nobody had said nothing. Scared of retaliation, is what allows this stuff to keep happening because people are afraid.
Sorry for the long post. I could of said alot more but I know about these things so I wanted to speak.
Hope everyone is doing well and we can get back to just venting or cheering for DA CANES. We are all brothers on here and I wish I could meet all of U someday.

Really great writing and article! Appreciate it 86!
