Canes talk Tar Heels

Before I come back with some news and notes, here are today's video interviews from Coral Gables as the Hurricanes prepare to take on North Carolina Saturday at Sun Life Stadium:

Go Canes!!!!!

I'd consider it a step up if they can finally beat Butch. He's a great coach but they're down several top players. I think it will not reflect well if the U can't get this done. C'mon guys!

Randy Shannon looks like he's aged 5 years overnite.

For all of you who constantly say how bad UM fans are when the chips are down, and how all ofthese negative blogs "caused" Eli Rogers to decommit-look elsewhere:

ESPN reported how Niels Paul, receiver for Nebraska, who dropped 2 TD passes (among 8 dropped total by the team), was heckled badly by fans AT THE stadium after the game, and on facebook. His response is almost the same as Jacorry when the latter had the hate mail thrown at him.

See?

It happens. Even at lilly white Nebraska, home of "the greatest fans in college football"

And I am sure it happens everywhere. Bobby Bowden was literally run out of town in an undignified way, and I can't even imagine what gator blogs and georgia blogs are saying.

Canes have to put this one away. No excuses.

Lets go Canes! Lets play with some old school tenacity and win this game.

Canes strap on your chin strap, get your lunch bucket and get the job done. Nuff said.......(W)

Randy said North Carolina is not going to change. The problem is we aren't going to change either so they know exacly what we are going to do! Long ball(floater)run straight up the middle (Berry)throw interception (jaboy) Lose the game for the FORTH time to them. We need a CHANGE!

Alex, your the only one on here talking about losing. Give it up man.

To the U of Miami, its go time. You have your two losses. Its time to put up or shut up. I am staying positive and think we should be playing FSU in the title game but it starts now. No doubt we need to win this game but to say were going to lose and we need change is not even giving us a chance to win. That why I think people who are just going to be negative no matter what they do. Lets win this game and take another step towards winning the ACC. Thats what we have in front of us. Its go time.

saying you are staying positive is a mask for saying that you are in denial. I hope the Canes win but I have seen nothing in four years to suggest that will happen. If I were you I would keep my paycheck in my pocket and not wager it on SHannon coaching us to a win against Butch.

Well its make or break time. This is it. Its not the beginning of the season so there is no more rust. Its not the end of the season so is there such thing as guys being tired. Now is the heart of the season. Where the guys who want to win find a way to win. They have tasted victory and they have tasted defeat. They have talked the talk now its time to walk the walk. The talking is over. They have been praised and they have been critized. Now is the time to show what how bad they want it. To show all the TRUE canes fan at home who they really are. To show all the doubters and skeptics that they were wrong about the miami hurricanes. They will not go down without a fight and will bounce back from all adversity and prevail. Now I may be drinking the cool aid but then again it takes a true fan to understand how sweet it really is. Go Canes!!!

Well, I'll tell U what: Butch can coach. I think this is a make or break game for Randy. UNC has lost some players, scandals, etc., but Butch is the one who can get them through everything.
To win, RS must run screens, utilize miller and Byrd and Streeter and Johnson in passing game. Did I say Johnson? whatz up with him? He's playing like he's scared. Back when I played, we said, "If you're scared, don't play."
I'l tell U what: If we don't beat UNC, we gotta sit back and think. We shoulda beat FSU.
Key players: VT, Merry, Miller, James and the Entire OL and DL.
Jimmy Johnson would win this game. And Benny Blades would be super-motivated. BTW: The best tight end ever at U was Willie Smith. Who is this Chae guy anyways?

championships is all that matters:

I have been reading your posts for the last several weeks and all you do is squat on this site day and night complaining, whinning, moaning and ripping the kids and coaches no matter what they do.

Your posts appear to be those of a sexually frustrated unemployed 22 year who lives at home with his mother.

To you real Canes fans, please know that the clown described in this post and approximately 75% of the negative garbage being posted on this blog is the work of Gator fans and the racist posing as UM fans.

We have Butch and his Tar Heels coming to town and I think our guys and coaches are going to make them pay for making the mistake of showing up at our house.

I've been reading a lot of comments lately by a number of different CANES fans. Listen to what you all are saying. "We need this win against North Carolina", "Im okay losing the Ohio State game", "its okay guys, even though you got blown out at home against your archrivals, we still support you." What is wrong with you people. This is the University of Miami. UNC back in the day would be a game where we would beat down on them with our starters out by halftime. I dont care whos coaching there now, we would have killed them. A lot of fans who think they are real fans by staying positive about things and supporting J12 and Shannon are not real fans. When I think Miami Hurricanes, I think National Champions. The losing and failure to put up a fight from this team is unacceptable. We're not "THE U", we dont have any "swagger"...you gottta earn the right to claim those terms. These guys suck, Shannon sucks, you fans who back them suck...Im sick of losing and watching these guys every Saturday. Even when we win we look horrible. Get rid of Shannon adn J12. Get some new blood in there.

You are absolutely right Tom too many Shannon apologists on this board defending him no matter what he does. They are hanging on to the little hope that we will somehow run the table and be in the Orange Bowl. After this Saturday when we lose to UNC these blindly loyal morons will hopefully realize what the rest of us figured out long ago which is that Shannon is in over his head and this is a sinking ship!!! Even the Northwestern recruits are starting to jump ship. The party is over morons!!! Time to find a real coach!!! www.firecoachshannon.com

JUST WIN BABY WIN...ALL THIS BACK AND FORTH TALK CAN GET LOST....WHO SUPPORT SHANNON AND WHO DOESN'T?.....I JUST WANT A WIN DAMMIT THAT IS IT....

Well said Don. Winning out and going to the Orange Bowl would almost be a worst case scenario for me...think about it. We'll win out our side of the conference against a bunch of teams that, for lack of a better word, SUCK, and then the talk will start. "Oh, the U is back, Shannon has got us going in the right direction, we won 10 games this year." Assuming we somehow win the ACC we will get waxed in our bowl game once we face a team that is actually good. I dont doubt that Shannon and this team could win out the rest of the season but there are no qualitiy wins that would come on that stretch...especially UNC this weekend. Half the damn team is suspended, were playing at home, no reason to lose the game...but i agree with you, we'll find a way to lose it. Either by laying another egg or horrible game management by Shannon...

UNC is depleted. On paper we should be expected to win big. If we don't it's another failed season and inexcusable loss for Shannon. 1 more loss to any ACC team and we are looking at another year of not playing in the ACC CCG and meaningless bowl game.Shannon has a way to go before he's off the hook. Bottom line is in his 4th year he's failed us again and needs a miracle run the next 6 weeks to save his job or the U will be looking at a graveyard in whatever that stadium will be called next year.

Tom = Don = Troll

I love watching trolls talk to themselves.

it's all about the U!

Well georgy oh boy, if thats who U wish to be known as this time, Yes I am the one that complaining and ripping Harris, Shannon, Shalala and Swassey because all three are incapable and have proved themselves of being incapable as well as incompetent of leading our team in the direction we need to go. WHich is winning not just Coastal Division or ACC titles but National Titles. I have no problem with being deemed that person, in fact I welcome it and am proud of it.

As far as the whining, crying and moaning and racist part, I hate to break it to U and anyone else that backs Shannon, that my friend is the catagory that U guys fall under. You see with Canes Junkie, VOS, Tom, Don, I hate Trolls, myself and the other 99% that comment on this blog is that we don't care who is the coach, what color he is or where he's from. All we care about is the Canes Winning National Titles and Winning big. A team as loaded as the Canes with Talent have no reason not to be blowing everyteam out in the ACC by at the very minimum 30 pts. But yet under Shannon Duke of all people is a "bounce back game" from that abysmal performance at home to FLorida State and all SHannon can coach our team to is a 28-13 win over a 1and 4 Duke squad who's only win came against Elon College.
Then shannon had the audacity to say that Duke is a tough place to win. C'mon Man u know he is full of $ h ! t.
Now For some ungodly ignorant reason u feel that I and the rest are Gator fans that point out what everyone of a sound logical mind knows, that SHannon is a failure as our Head Coach. Now just think for a minute SHannon is losing games that are big games by blowouts, recruits, his teams are always outcoached by the other team's coach, and we go to mediocre bowl games and lose, if we were Florida Gator fans would we not want Miami to keep a loser Ron Zook Clone like SHannon? WHat would we have to gain by bashing Shannon and wanting him gone? Thats right nothing. Shannon is doing a great job for Florida Gator fans and FLorida State fans, its us Miami Hurricane Fans he is doing a terrible job for. Just think with your Brain for a minute or ask a logical person if U can't.
And for that I and the rest are called racist. Well if that makes me a racist then I am damn proud to be a racist. U see my friend it is not myself and the others that are racist, that is you and the rest who only support shannon because he is black. News flash Black people can be racist too. And anytime U support someone who has proven not to be able to get the job done and continues to lose games, recruits, not have our team ready to play and waste talent like shannon has that makes u a racist. Just answer this say a coach has 4 players at the QB position, the coach is white, 1 of the QBs is white and the other three are black, ok are U with me. And lets say all three of the black QBs transferred and 2 of them were rated higher coming into college than the 1 white QB plus they had better skills than the white QB but for some reason the white QB was the starter no matter what. Would U not say that that coach was a racist? Well that my friend is just what your Boy Randy SHannon has done. Now who is the racist now? Can U answer me that? Try being honest and objective in your response not only to our beloved Canes but to yourself as well.

Well said Championships....

It's true, we don't care what color the coach is, we just want a competent coach. Do you really think we would complain is Mike Tomlin was our coach? I know...it's just an example.

But you get the point, we just want a change.

Canes 1st you are a pathetic idiot. Follow your boy Randy out the door. We don't need mental midgets like you as fans. MORON!!!

Hey stupid! Nobody's buying your crappola. The sad part of all this is you truly believe you know what you are talking about. You have absolutely no idea what it takes to win football games at the ecollege level or for that matter at the Pee-Wee level. Randy Shannon is a great coach and will have 'MY" Canes winning National Championships starting next year. Double down on your meds and...Boo-Hoo I hate the Miami Hurricanes...Boo-Hoo I hate Randy Shannon...Boo-Hoo I hate everything green and orange...GET A LIFE!

And the gators squating on this site using various screen names posing as Canes fans having back and forth conversations ripping the Canes is laughable.

You would think you gators would be hiding under a rock after 3 straight brutal losses, with the latest coming from a team that doesn't even have the forward pass in their offense...truly pathetic! Furthermore...your insane head coach is being run out of town by your so-called gator nation(tee-hee). Back to your normal location in the basement you go little girls!

CIATM great post. I don't get the need for posters to play the race card when we are talking about poor results . I understand and empathize with the AA community who anxiously want to see more succesful AA head coaches and win a MNC. But putting all eggs in the Randy Shannon basket is a waste of time. He's not that guy. Time to let go. He's laid enough rotten eggs to fill up his own basket.

Are u Talkin to me drag queen? I hate to sound an alarm in your cracked out head but it is U oh delusional one who obviously has no idea of what it takes to win on the college level. You know just like your boy Shannon. And just "who" is going to coach us to this National Title next year? I know U are not talkin about Shannon. Now that is crappola that nobody would buy. Bro U just can't stand the truth.
Oh but I hate to break it to U but it is U that changes your name for every post. first you are a castrated bull gator, then U want to be George Mira, and then there is YOur infatuation with me of coarse, while I am the same one that slaps you around everytime. These other REAL Cane fans are just intelligent, objective fans that are tired of losing. Obviously U have been a loser your whole life which could explain why you make meaningless, retarded, biggoted, comments because people are tired of having a loser like Shannon as our teams head coach.
And Dude the gators are hiding under rocks. We are REAl Canes, Orange and Green to the Core. Your paranoia is getting the best of U. Lay off the Crack.

Finally, "championships is all that matters", has come clean as to why he really hates Randy Shannon. And that's because Randy's a black man playing a black quarterback (see his post above...simply astonishing!).

This hater calls Randy Shannon a racist for playing a black quarterback inferring the white QB's who transferred were better players. Just two questions for you George Wallace...Coach Whipple is a white man, with a white son playing QB at the "U"--right? So, you are asking the people who read your idiocy to believe that Coach Whipple would standby as other kids, including his son are skipped over because they are white so Randy Shannon can play a black QB--Right?

You have redefined the definition of moron.

Thank you CanesJunkie, and I hate trolls, I could not agree more. We don't care if the Head coach is Green with pink Poka dots as long as he wins and brings us back where we belong, National Champions.

Now U want to be reality. Whipple is a professional first and second dummy, Randy SHannon makes the call as to who is recruited and who plays as Head Coach.
And thats right I am calling Shannon a racist? U got a problem with that? Well sorry to put a turd in your punch bowl buddy but a black man can be a racist. U do not think that it is obvious that he berated Robert Marve about throwing interceptions when he was here but at the same time blames Benjamin and others for Harris's Interceptions. U do not think that it is strange that everyyear he goes out and recruits only Black QB's like this year with Bridgewater when the kid at St. Thomas Aquinas is clearly a better prostyle QB that would fit right into our system. Shannon would rather let a talent like that kid go and let Iowa pluck him up. Plus recruiting analyst say Bridgwater would be a better Wideout than a QB any way.
Looks like I have slapped U right around once again. Just a note Brains beats stupidity any day, so get U some knowledge so U can talk with the big boys and not sound so dumb.

Let's go Canes!

Let's have a great 2nd half of the season. Let's play hard and get better everyday and every game. Let's win the ACC and the Orange Bowl. Let's go 12-2 and be dominate on the field.

C! A! N! E! S! CANES!!!

"Championship is..." douche, how do you manage all those women and still post all night long?

THE BEST THING I ADMIRE ABOUT ADVERSITY. IT SEPARATES THOSE WHO GOT YOUR BACK FROM THOSE WHO JUST WANT A FREE RIDE. ANYBODY CAN SAY THEY SUPPORT YOU, BUT IT'S ONLY THROUGH ADVERSITY, THAT THE TRUTH DEFINE THOSE WHO TOLERATE YOU AND THOSE WHO SEPARATE YOU. THANK GOD COACH SHANNON IS INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO KNOW WHEN HE'S WALKING IN A GRAVE YARD FIELD WITH MINE FIELDS. THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT DIRT IS THAT IT CAN BE USED TO BURY YOU OR PLANT YOU, BUT IT'S THE WAY YOU NAVIGATE THE DIRT. GO CANES GO. REMEMBER, YOU AND ONLY YOU, CONTROL YOUR DESTINY. NOT THE FANS, NOT THE MEDIA, NOT THE PRE TENDERS BUT YOU. WIN THEM ALL AND THE REST IS SELF EXPLANATORY. HOWEVER, EVEN IF YOU DON'T. REMEMBER THERE IS STILL A FEW TRUE FANS OUT HERE AND WIN OR LOSE. YOU'RE STILL MY TEAM. THE ONE I'M PROUD TO CALL MY TEAM. PSALMS 48.1

TRUTH SPEAKER...shut up. You sound rediculous. What do you mean you "support" them no matter what. It's a football team dude, your a fan, relax. As fans we're allowed to be critical, especially after dropping $600 on season tickets. Your part of whats wrong with this football program...please get off the soap box...

Get ready for your 3rd loss of the season and more to come. If you think UM is going to win an ACC title or a championship you are delusional. A lot of things stand in your way, one being the Noles. You remember them don't you? They gave you that beat down just a few weeks ago. Thats the true candy canes team. First you have to try to win at least 10 games this year which you haven't managed in years. Every year some old excuse as to why you can't win. It gets so old and tired.

Jacory! Run more!!! That opens everything else up! Plus not even Butch will expect it!

Go Canes

Wow, the Gator troll is on a roll.

0-3 your past three games, loser. Get back to Gator Clause, where your supporters are waiting....

THE ONLY THING SHANNON WILL BE TALKING ABOUT ON SUNDAY MORNING.. IS HOW UNPREPARE HIS PALYERS WERE AND THAT IS ALL HIS FAULT... EXCUSES EXCUSES AND NOTHING BUT MORE EXCUSES... FIRE HIS A....HOPEFULLY AFTER SATURDAY U PEOPLE WILL WAKE UP AND REALIZE RANDY IS NOT THE ONE TAKING US TO ANOTHER NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP....

THE CANES OF OLD WOULDN'T JUST BEAT YOU, THEY'D ROB YOU OF YOUR SOUL! THEY'D STRUT INTO AN ENEMIES STADIUM AND MAKE THEIR OWN. THE CANES OF OLD KNEW THEY'D ALWAYS, ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO WIN!! Lets get some of that old attitude back. The Canes use to win games before they even started because everyone was so intimidated by them. Where is that attitude? Where is that confidence? Where is our swagger? This is FOOTBALL! It's a physical intimidating game. You need an attitude to WIN! Lets GO CANES!

Carolina, Va. Tech or Ga. Tech, which one of these teams are we going to lay down for. We have more talent, than any of them but for some reason we struggle against all 3, I wonder why! It must be because one we can't catch the football, 2)we miss field goals,3)we have about 10 penalties, 4)we throw interceptions, 5)we can't tackle, 6)we can't cover a kick or punt return. How many of the above are we going to accumulate this weekend? Oh I forgot to mention the 7Th and most important, Coaching, which is the real reason we suck at the first 6!

You are 100% correct. The thing is all three teams would have to lay down for Shannon to coach the canes to a win. Great Post Carolinacane.

Randy claims to be a CANES man to the bone! If he was then take one for the team , STEP down so we can get a real coach before all the recruits leave! We just lost another one today. How many more before something is done about it! FIRE SHANNON NOW !
