Those can't be real cheerleaders, must be photo shopped? Those young women actually have things called breasts which I am told is no longer allowed on college cheerleaders? If those who recruit cheerleaders for Oregon and USC do have a statue built for them I would kindly like to suggest that it should be made of wood. That is all.
Now except for rooting for Alabama to lose every time they step on a football field, college football has lost a lot of its enjoyment for me. Posted by: solarcane | December 13, 2019 at 11:45 AM Well there's that and the cheerleaders. Oh yeah, and teams that score over 40 points per game, do it effortlessly and look like they actually practice scoring points and having fun on the football field. Not Miami, but you know, teams like that. And the occasional interview with The Pirate.

They should cut the bowl games list from 40 to 20 (except for the Idaho Famous Potato Bowl because that name is too dope to retire). Posted by: solarcane | December 13, 2019 at 11:28 AM I would be in favor of reducing the bowl games from 40 by 5 each year until a team needs 7 wins to be eligible. Rewarding 6 wins is like the "everybody gets a trophy" mentality. And it is overkill and over-saturation on TV.
Give Manny 4 years and he will have us back Posted by: Delmonud | December 13, 2019 at 08:53 AM Can we quote you on this? Please lay out your reasons for making this statement and we will give it a fair and thorough assessment and critique?
Article about OC fit for miami Posted by: solarcane | December 12, 2019 at 09:46 PM That may be the worst and most likely the dumbest article I ever read.
1. Everything in the story each one of us have brought up in our rants. 2. Coaching, scheme, wins and Losses, recruiting, attitude, etc. Posted by: HerbieIbis | December 12, 2019 at 08:56 PM 1. Yeah but we are just fans who don't know anything, right? 2. Yes, yeah, uh huh, yes.
Hell even glorious Notre Dame had several rough years also as has UCLA, Michigan State and others. If someone would have told you that Clemson would be all that and big bag of chips 10-15 years ago you would have laughed them off the blog.
Solar...add USC, Texas, Nebraska and Stanford to your Tennessee list of collosal collapses and failures. I am sure there are more?
The problem every time we swap coaches out we have to start over and that too has become a viscous cycle. Posted by: HerbieIbis | December 12, 2019 at 01:42 PM WRONG, TRY AGAIN! The problem is that the coaches we hire don't win enough games so we HAVE TO replace them. Nobody ever wants to have to fire a coach because if you do it means failure. Everybody wants to KEEP the current coach if at all possible because it means they are being successful. Unfortunately our coaches are not. Not winning is the problem, not changing coaches. That is only done out of necessity, not some misplaced desire just to fire people. Try again!
I think some of the doom and gloom here is badly overblown. Posted by: TonyCane | December 11, 2019 at 10:50 PM It always is. I am sure everything will be just fine.
Only winning will begin to reverse the negative trend. Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | December 11, 2019 at 08:33 PM So what you are saying is that losing to FIU, Duke and GT hurts recruiting?
have multiple gaping holes that need filling. Posted by: Go Canes!! | December 11, 2019 at 06:45 PM NO COMMENT.
Herb...I am not going ot ban you, I was just messin with U. But you seem to have become the new "excuse maker", a role previously reserved for Go Canes, for the teams' failures. Who knows maybe we all do need a ray of hope here on the blog and I guess U are it. Here is my response: 1. We are not the only team starting new players or Freshmen players at a position. Every team almost every year replace 30-50% of their starting line up. Some teams started a Freshmen new starter at QB and still performed very well. We can't get a few OL to play decent enough to beat FIU? Child please! 2. You don't get to be LAST in all of CFB in 3rd down conversion just because of your OL. It is the play calling. It is the execution. It is the motivation. It is the QB being inaccurate or not reading the defense or seeing the field and open receivers. It is the WRs not getting separation. Using the easy out that this is all due to the OL failures way oversimplifies the situation and the reasons why UM failed on offense this year. The are reasons aplenty. And don't even get me started on the defense and special teams. Don't even!
1. I don't think it matters who the coach is concerning the awfensivline, they would still stink. It would help if we had just 2 above average tackles but we don't. 2. The Herb disagrees on the talent part. We do have top 20 talent we just don't play to our talent level and no matter who have been the coaches the last 15 years or so we still play down to the comp. Posted by: HerbieIbis | December 09, 2019 at 11:28 PM 1. Screw that. FIU beat us and Duke beat us and GT beat us with their horrible offensive lines but you wanna use that as your excuse fine. It is not the OL, it is the coaching. Lies, all, lies. 2. We do not have top 20 talent. Our talent is lost and lazy. They are tired and disinterested. They are entitled and have been dominated with no response at all. After losing to FIU did they come out pissed and on fire looking to make it right? No they came out soft and weak and ready to lose again. Was there a fight on the sideline? Was there a player arguing with a coach? Was there any sign of a fight left in this team? The answer is NO.

Soon to be President of the United States Franklin Delano Roosevelt made the the following and often quoted statement during the presidential election campaign against Herbert Hoover in 1932: "You have nothing to fear but fear itself." Clearly, Manny Diaz... Continue reading

I can’t imagine any fan base or media anywhere setting the bar for their new HC at “can you beat Miami?” Unless of course you mean a MAC school & Miami of Ohio. Posted by: DallasTX Cane | December 08, 2019 at 12:57 AM I was not sauying that "Miami is the team to beat" because we are any good, I was just saying that FSU lost to Miami this year as bad as we were and that Butch would smoke us with their players unlike Taggart who lost and went to get steppin.

I assume Kiffin and Butch were interested in FSU too, but I think they made a good choice. Posted by: BigWindyCane1 | December 07, 2019 at 11:00 PM Hard to believe that Butch was ever really in it for the FSU job but if he were chosen as the new head caoch at FSU can you imagine his first presser? Media: Coach do you think you'll be able to beat Miami? Davis: "Hell if I can beat them with the players I had at FIU imagine what I can do to them with the players here at FSU!"

I will have to admit Day did a great job whatever he said to his team at halftime and the adjustments he has made. Posted by: solarcane | December 07, 2019 at 11:24 PM I will tell you what he said: "Did you see what those guys at Canespace did to Diaz on their blog after he lost to FIU and Duke? Guys were even posting pictures of dumpster fires on there. That crap ain't happening to me here at Ohio State. Now get out there and win the damn game!" The rest is, as they say, history.

You know the ACC is real balanced when one team in the conference championship game is a 28 point favorite over the other team. Posted by: solarcane | December 05, 2019 at 05:09 PM Right? As if UVA has any chance at all against Clemson. It would be like FIU beating Miami. I mean c'mon man, we know would NEVER happen. Oh wait, I am being told that...Holy Smokes!
