Borden's in the era of Ben and Jerry's. Thus ends my 6:00 AM analogy. Posted by: Old Skool | January 09, 2019 at 06:03 AM Just another reason to come to Canespace. "I'll take analogies at 6:00 AM for $400 Alex."

I had a great call with Sarasota...what a American Hero, individual and Canes fan! Felt like we have known each other since Howards day! I am planning now with Soup a trip to a 2019 game...it would be my honor to meet as many of you as possible..We are Family...I love each of you in a special way...you are the BEST! Posted by: VA Cane | January 08, 2019 at 10:07 PM What an awesome, random call VA Cane. Sometimes we "pick each others scabs" on here cause we all want UM to win so bad, but when you put a face or a real voice instead of a keyboard into the mix then all that crap just melts away. We all know that VA Cane is a coach, but his family's "football story" is unreal. VA Tech, William and Mary, LA Rams, DA Raiders, high school, middle school...it's all in there!

I’ll ask you this. Urban Meyer calls the minute CMR announces and tells James he doesn’t want to retire but needs 5 years $30 million to come here. Forget the controversies and health. Just Urban Meyer the coach. Who is the head guy here today? Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 06, 2019 at 07:16 PM Butch Davis? Oh wait, I was just kidding. Scott Frost? OK, OK, I was just messing with you. The Correct answer is...Greg Schiano OR Lane Kiffin? I am just gald we got Manny Diaz. He is THE MAN!

Not certain if there was the available space for both. Howard's 1981 plan called for a 40,000 seat stadium. You would probably have had to build the basketball facility where it currently is now - and tear down what I believe was the married students housing at that time. Posted by: TonyCane | January 06, 2019 at 06:36 PM That is correct.

But where? Where would you build that stadium. Howard has a plan in 1981 to build that stadium - I saw it years later in a yearbook - but the only land available was the intramural fields coupled with where the IPF is now. You can’t build a stadium at UM without either: Posted by: TonyCane | January 06, 2019 at 02:54 PM Tony...anyone who has lived in Miami since the early days and has followed UM football (or went to school there - hint, hint) knows that the only real solution to "The Stadium Issue" at UM was one that was floated around in the late 1980s-early 2000s and was the Tropical park site between Miller Road (56th Street that goes straight to UM) and Bird Road (40th Street). It was about 3-5 miles from the stadium and located near the major expressways and local roads that would allow ease of access from N-S-E-W. It was a good, solid, feasible plan but the public/private financing could never be agreed upon.

Sorry but Manny wasn’t a financially motivated hire. Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 06, 2019 at 03:56 PM This is dishonest. To say that costs and other financial considerations have NOTHING to do with the decision is simple not even remotely close to being true. It may not have been the primary driver in the decision but it always plays a role in the decision. As usual, in your continuous effort to defend any decision UM related you always go to far. Here is what I think is fair to say: There were multiple reasons that led to the decision to hire Diaz, and in no particular order these included, but are not limited to... 1. Familiarity and positive view of him at UM. 2. Excellent performance of Diaz's defense. 3. Ease of decision/easy acceptance. 4. Costs/Financial considerations. 5. His knowledge/embracing of Miami culture. 6. No possibility of a power struggle as might have happened with a Top 10 coach with ego. 7. Can anyone name others???

1. Just quit complaining and give the guy two weeks before you crucify him. 2. Alright that’s my two post for the year. I’m going back to the shadows of just reading. Posted by: CaneSince1982 | January 06, 2019 at 01:02 PM 1. COMPLAINING IS WHAT WE DO BEST! Over the years I have found that it is BEST to just let them all get it out of their system first and then we can all move on. Well most of us anyway? I know I did. 2. DO NOT HIDE, HANG AROUND! Even a post a week or a month helps balance the conversation and move it along.

Oh and BTW, your good friend Butch at FIU beat Toledo in their bowl game 35-32 whereas Miami lost to Wisconsin by, well, you know... Posted by: SOUP | January 04, 2019 at 11:48 PM I see you didn't address this issue because the former coach who UNDER-achieved at UM is no longer here whereas Butch is sitting comfy having OVER-achieved at FIU.

You are such a jackazz, always missing the point. I said IF Butch were at MIAMI, with Schiano and Kiffin, they would recruit the F-ing stuff out of South Florida, not if Butch were at FIU without either one. Butch "under-recruits" but over performs! Get it? Got it? Good!
Toggle Commented Jan 5, 2019 on Any Major Dude Would Tell You at Canespace
Before Butch got to FIU they were 4-8. Since then they have been 8-5 and 9-4. There is your research working for you. Manny comes in at 7-6. What will he end his first year at? Will he win 4-5 more games in his first two years as his predecessor? Time will tell...

My only position is bent over with laughter reading what your scotch hazed brain convinces you is coherent thought as you spew type on here nightly. Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 04, 2019 at 11:41 PM I had not a single drop of Scotch tonight. Now Vodka, well that may be a different story all together. LOL

So my good friend Mr. Go Canes...since you felt it research worthy to look up the recruiting stats on FIU and their competitors I thought I would repay the favor by looking up the results of their actual head to head games. And what do you know, in 2018, here is what I found: FIU beat Old Dominion 28-20 FIU beat Rice 36-17 Oh and BTW, your good friend Butch at FIU beat Toledo in their bowl game 35-32 whereas Miami lost to Wisconsin by, well, you know...

lower ranked class than conference foes Rice and Old Dominion. Posted by: Go Canes!! | January 04, 2019 at 11:25 PM U see this is the definition of DESPERATION! Go Canes felt so motivated to defend his position that he actually did the research to make this comment. We drove him to this and now he has officially gone over the edge!!! I love it.
