Great job VA Cane! Good luck Saturday! Walton... What a waste! He should have stayed in college another year... I'm sorry for the girl... Unacceptable behavior... he should be punished.

I like everything I've heard about Van Dyke... I hope he "sticks."

Posted by: VA Cane | November 11, 2019 at 08:12 PM Thanks VA Cane... From one coach to another, I really appreciate it! The young student athletes I work with continue to amaze me with what they are capable of accomplishing when they; work on their fundamentals, enjoy what they are doing, and BELIEVE in themselves... (Golf season is over for this year, Tennis is coming up very soon!)

Also, Al, as for your comment regarding the end of the 1st half - I agree and think it was totally wussified that we didn’t try to move downfield even if to try a FG Posted by: AeroCane | November 11, 2019 at 06:49 PM I third that position! JJ would have gone for the juggler at that point... WHY NOT???

At the same time I guarantee you that Miami had no idea Baxa would become a head case and fail. Posted by: 86Cane | November 11, 2019 at 06:08 PM Yeah, I agree with this totally. Baxa STILL does a good job on kickoffs. (I remember YEARS going by without a U kicker capable of reaching the goalline on kickoffs... ) Like alpine I DO believe the coaches are also making improvements... albeit much SLOWER than most of US would like.

I think he means that UMiami, being a fairly small "private" school does not have the large number of students walking around on campus to "pull from" to find replacements... Does NOTHING to explain why decent kickers weren't recruited in the first place!

Agreed! LOL, some of us go all the way back to the Orlando Sentinel days! Posted by: CGNC | November 11, 2019 at 02:45 PM As Sun Sentinel alumnus myself... I also agree. (That article about Coach Roach was ESPECIALLY Pulitzer Prize worthy!) LOL Thanks for all you do SOUP!

Remember when you could stop by Lums and spend like 1.75 and be full? steamed hot dogs or clam strips were my usual https://live.staticflickr.com/4116/4792900151_194782b94f_b.jpg Posted by: solarcane | November 08, 2019 at 11:57 AM Their Key Lime Pie was ALSO one of the best!

WTF!!!??? I turn on my computer, check the blog, (of course), and see my ugly mug up there??? Thanks SOUP... And to all of my fellow CaneSpacers for your kind words! Yeah, winding down my coaching career, after teaching and coaching at Lemon Bay High School in Englewood, FL, for 39 years. Retired from the classroom this past June, and I'm still coaching Girls Golf and Girls Tennis for the Manta Rays. (Probably coach for another year or two...) I've been very lucky to have many awesome student athletes to work with over the years, and we racked up quite a few titles for a little public school. (Often competing against private "academy" schools.) Just finished another very successful Golf season with a group of over achieving girls, (LOL), and will begin getting ready for our Spring tennis season now. BUT, in the MEANTIME, we got some Kentucky Cardinals to take care of Saturday! I hope our Canes can put together two decent performances in a row tomorrow. I'm thinking we're FINALLY discovering our identity as a team! Let's Go CANES! Thanks again, Tom and the SPACERS! (Sounds like a '50's Bebop band.)

Who cares about football, basketball and baseball? It's all about women's tennis at The U! Posted by: 58 Straight | November 05, 2019 at 10:33 PM Agree 100% SOUP!!!

I am not mad, just numb. Would like some answers from you and the other Cane experts Posted by: MLAlumni1970 | October 25, 2019 at 07:45 PM Nice "play" on the Blog Title MLAlumni1970. ("Comfortably Numb") I am NOT an expert, by any means, but I think we're in for a long, slow, recovery... We currently don't seem to have the correct leadership in place to make a rapid recovery. The ONLY bright spots that I can see is we've got MUCH improved athletic facilities... (Thank you CMR), and CURRENTLY have an excellent strength training program. Sadly, that's about it... Recruits are jumping ship by the boatload, (pun intended), and coaches are back to just making "pat" excuses and NOT actually fixing anything. Just my humble opinion...

Yup, Hightower in the transfer portal. And so it begins...

Pinckney was SORELY missed. Ragone is NOT ready for primetime, and Finley had a really poor game. They ran all over us... the number of missed tackles was incalculable...

Davidson kicked the first one... VERY weak, and low right. (34 yds.) Baxa missed the second one... plenty of height and power, but missed wide right. (27 yds) Davidson kicked the 3rd one TOTALLY low again, and got blocked by someone on their line, but there was no penetration, so it should have been WAY higher than it was, by the line of scrimmage. (25 yds) Unbelievable... Davidson appears to only have an "average to weak" high school leg. Baxa has a much stronger leg... but apparently, just can't handle the pressure. We SUCK... This game, (against a cellar dweller), should NOT have come down to 3 missed "chip shot" field goals. ALL 3 phases of the game are in shambles. COACHING is killing us...

Harry, roach, Big Al, sota and others Remember sitting in the Orange Bowl in the mid 70s? Familiar? https://mobile.twitter.com/TheStateOfTheU/status/1185933724992577542/photo/1 Posted by: solarcane | October 20, 2019 at 11:44 AM LOL. YUP... Except no chairbacks where I was!

It’s time to start Tate! We need a leader on this team! I think the players will feed off his energy! What do we have to lose? Posted by: thirstybuzzardcane | October 19, 2019 at 11:48 PM AGREE 100%! Go FULL SPREAD, and START Martell. We have absolutely NOTHING TO LOSE!

Meanwhile... we have to watch our Canes on the ACC Network Saturday... I run it using HULU+LIVE and AirPlay from my laptop through an early generation Apple TV... It's NOT the ideal setup and really sucks that Comcast never included it in their lineup.

F1 the finest of the fine! Have you ever seen the comparison between an F1 car vs. an Indy car? (Not even close.)
