This Coronavirus has the nation at a standstill right now, but let’s just wait to see how things look at the end of the month. So far, New York and New Jersey numbers are driving the bad news and Florida and many other states have managed much better. Even Washington and California are doing a better job of managing this crisis. A lot of the numbers in Florida, especially South Florida, is being driven by travel, and visitors from New York are an issue. But if we continue to follow the measures advocated by the CDC, we should see this thing start to turn in a positive direction very soon.
It is amazing how far Little League Baseball and youth football have progressed,it's great for the kids. Posted by: solarcane | April 03, 2020 at 11:17 AM It sure has—for better or for worse. This COVID-19 State of Emergency has really put things in perspective though. No live sports anywhere in the world, youth, college, adult, amateur and pro? Never conceived it
https://youtu.be/ry6D9pGP9-k Posted by: solarcane | April 02, 2020 at 08:22 PM Solar, I have seen a couple of games there over the years. They play in the same league as the Gwen Cherry Bulls, MIAMI Gardens Chiefs and MIAMI Gardens Ravens. Several teams from Broward and even a team from St. Lucie compete in that league. They always have a lot of young talent. I have also seen a similar league in Orlando, where the Outlaws play. They have teams from all over Central Florida play. It’s always fun to watch. Those kids are very talented. It’s easy to see why there are so many players in the NFL from Florida. Sadly, we have to establish relationships early on with these kids, coaches and parents. I have seen people who refer to themselves as scouts for Alabama, Florida and Clemson attend these games. Not sure if they are real scouts, but these top college football programs do establish a presence. At least we have Stephen Field, who has connections throughout South Florida youth football, and we have others like Banda who are understanding the importance of establishing relationships early. Rumph also coached youth football in Broward, but he doesn’t appear to have a warm personality. IMHO, Rumph appears old school in his approach, even to recruits and parents. Rumph is very good at developing players with his old school approach, but that approach isn’t great for a recruiter. Today’s top recruits and their parents and coaches/handlers have very big egos, even though they haven’t accomplished anything in college yet, and they have a lot to learn. IMHO, a good recruiter these days has to hold back on the negative criticism and not chastise players until the sign their NOI.
Herb and Solar, You got some great names too. They are definitely on my list of great Canes. I could go on and on, by starting with those who are now in the HOF, and then go to those in the Ring of Honor. There is a long list of great Canes and many defensive players have a special place in my heart. But ST26 was also very very special. He would have been 37 years old today, but his life was cut short much too early.

Happy 37th birthday to ST26! The greatest defensive player I have ever seen! You are missed!

DraftKings latest futures betting lines, the over/under regular season win totals for the Canes is 9 wins, which is second in the ACC behind Clemson at. 11.5. Only nine power five teams have a higher over/under than the Canes

Great article Soup! You are on a serious roll! Tom Petty sums it up!
I remember that hit that ST26 put on PK Sam! So many great plays that didn’t make that highlight video

Its been so long that I forget how good the Canes actually we’re. I just watched that Seán Taylor one hour highlight Video from his days at Miami, and I can confidently say that he is the best defensive player I have ever seen at any level of football. https://247sports.com/college/miami/Article/Miami-Hurricanes-Football-WATCH-Sean-Taylor-highlights-during-his-time-at-Miami-145504832/

Hope you and your family are doing well Big Windy Posted by: solarcane | March 27, 2020 at 09:23 PM Thanks Solar. Same to you and your family ! I agree with you about UNC being well coached, and Howell is definitely a top QB in the ACC. But I think our defense is more athletic this season, and we will shut teams down and get more turnovers this season. More importantly, I really like Lashlee and this offense. We will see see an explosive offense that he designs around his weapons. He will emphasize strengths and minimize weaknesses. That’s what good coaches do

Dabo wasn’t a great coach when he started, but now his program is humming. Lashlee is a great OC, and as long as CMD lets him run his offense, the Canes will score. Lashlee is a proven OC

I have said this before, in that Mullin can flat out coach! That is a given. I am probably the only one that feels this way, but Mullin will give UGA and Bama all they can handle, and don’t be surprised if they are in the CFB Final Four. That said, I do have my doubts about CMD, but I think King and Lashlee will have this Canes offense clicking at a high level. UNC had a much better OC and QB last season, but the Canes have closed the gap this season. In addition, I am not impressed with UNC’s defense. The Canes will show they are more talented overall than UNC this season, and Rousseau and Jordan will be first round draft picks. Phillips and Bolden will surprise everyone. King will put up a minimum of 40+ TDS this season, and that Canes defense will be stout and dominant. I don’t respect Booger McFarland because he never knows what he is talking about. I hope the Canes post his comments on the bulletin board, and use that as motivation to play up to their potential

I guess I could do the same thing with the DBs and WRs and DLs from the late 90s and early 2000s. Too many all-time greats to count. Each players had their signatures play at the U. Magahee had that 90 yard screen pass against FSU Sean Taylor had that game against FSU in the rain Ed Reed had that interception return that he ripped away from a teammate against Boston College Shockey has that TD pass from DORSEY down the middle to clinch the comeback against FSU Devin Hester had that kickoff return in the Orange Bowl against UF I could go on and on ... each play still gives me chills

THIS popped up on my Facebook feed a little while ago... https://247sports.com/ContentGallery/College-Programs-With-the-Most-Super-Bowl-Players-Ranked-142641396/#142641396_1 🙌🏼 Posted by: roachcane77 | March 22, 2020 at 01:00 PM I didn’t know that! That is a pretty amazing stat for a team that really didn’t start to win until the 1980s. Go Canes!

I hope Coach L is right about the comparison to the 2013 team, but Wong needs to take a really BIG step forward to play on Larkin’s level. I notice that Coach L didn’t mention Lykes. I guess he realizes that Lykes isn’t a point guard. That’s good because Canespacers realized this a while ago. Wong has more potential, but he has a very very long way to go for the Larkin comparisons are valid

Former Canes OL Ereck Flowers is headed back home to play for the Dolphins. Flowers should make the OL better. Flowers is now playing OG which is a better fit for him. He actually had been playing well at OG for Washington

If I was you I would go to the ATM machine outside of Publix to maintain social distancing, swab the touch screen with an alchohol wipe and withdraw $100. You can mail it to... Posted by: 86Cane | March 18, 2020 at 01:07 PM 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Seriously Soup, your post about Lykes is spot on. I think he should play off the ball and come in as a sixth man. Hide him on defense. His teammates must hate trying to get open when they know he isn’t going to pass it. Lykes isn’t a true point guard

Alpine, I hope you are right about Coach L and next year. I noticed that that article you posted mentioning the same issues we posted about this season. These players need to take huge steps forward for the Canes to be a factor in the ACC and sneak into the top 25. It’s going to be tough for them, but we will see what kind of coach we have if we actually start winning again
