Dream On

Just when I thought that recruiting was stupid and I didn’t really care what happened on National Signing Day because it was all about what happened on the field that matters, I found myself doing everything short of a Chinese fire drill on I-95 in celebration while listening to Tracy Howard’s commitment.  All that screaming and honking and cheering (sidenote: an apology to my fellow I-95 travelers that morning) awakened something inside of me that has been dead for a while, and I dared to dream what this group of new signees could develop into.  Yet, within a few hours I calmed myself down and shook myself with the reality that these new additions to the ‘Canes have not done anything at this point and I needed to keep my expectations in check.

Then, a few days ago, as I climbed the last hill of the class that my spin instructor warned would be the hardest, I heard some words that I had heard a hundred times, yet did not understand until that moment what they meant:

“[]_[] got to lose to know how to win.”

If this is true, let me tell you, ‘Canes fans should be EXPERTS at knowing how to win by now.  In the last decade, we’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy the ecstasy of victory and endured the agony of defeat.  And, like the fans of any great program, we believed our “time” was once again right around the corner and that we were simply “reloading,” not “rebuilding.”

“Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay.”

Time after time, just as we thought we were “BACK,” our team has had a way of knocking us back down to reality with all the sensitivity of a slap to the face.  I can still remember like it was yesterday crying for several days after the 2009 Clemson loss.  Walking quietly out of the stadium in Jortsville in 2008. Nearly having a bottle of Jim Beam cracked over my head for telling a drunk ‘Canes “fan” not to boo MY team in the last game in the Orange Bowl in 2007.  The list goes on.  Indeed, in some circles, tailgates have become more of a way to anesthetize yourself so as to not be as hurt by what happens during the game rather than in celebration of what your team will do to its opponent.

“Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear.”

Perhaps it is the clarity that can only come after one burns over 1,000 calories in a hot room, but suddenly I began remembering the ever-cheery college-aged JSQ.  The one who had only seen her ‘Canes lose ONCE in person during undergrad.  Although she grasped on to the front railing of the Orange Bowl in tears as Penn State robbed the ‘Canes of their W in 1999, she didn’t know what losing was.  That girl I once was knew Saturdays as that care-free day where you gathered with your friends and the biggest concern I had was how I could make orange and green look cute together.  She didn’t know what it would feel like to devote your time, money, heart, and soul into this team and only get tears and heartache in return.  But I promise you, a ‘Canes win did not mean nearly as much to her as it does to me today.

“The past is gone.”

With the mass exodus of the 2008 recruiting class to the NFL and the fifty new players that will be on our squad representing Al Golden’s first two recruiting classes, we can certainly say that much of the past has been purged from our beloved football program.  All that is left is a legacy to uphold, and almost impossibly high standards for these new players and coaching staff to live up to.

Can they?  Can we really put ourselves through this emotional rollercoaster one more time?  Are we demanding too much? Are our expectations too high?  Should we give up hope and just drink our jello shots and trudge into Sun Life Stadium for more punishment?

Suddenly, as if knowing that I was in need of an answer, Steven Tyler commanded me to “Listen.”

As Steven Tyler continued to croon, I cranked the resistance and pedaled faster and harder as I saw drops of my sweat hit the floor.  I felt a lump rise in my throat and my eyes begin tear up as I heard him instruct the 100 cyclists to “dream on, dream until your dreams come true” and I pledged with every pedal stroke that I would do just that.

With the advent of the 2012 recruits to the University of Miami and all signs pointing to Al Golden being able to accomplish the seemingly impossible in the name of the Hurricanes, I encourage you all to do the same.  Call me an orange and green kool-aid drinker, but I think the sky is the limit for this new class.

GO ‘CANES!!!

    Jimbo selling them wolf tickets. Listen to the kids statement…

    There were a few factors that led to his commitment, but it was the early playing time that caught Senat’s eye.

    “I love how you can play early at Florida State,” mentioned Senat. “If you are good, you will get on the field and be in the rotation. I can’t say that at Miami. It seems that only the freshman play there. I want to play early and I feel that I am good enough to do that.”

    ^^^ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Chick, Grimble, Darius Smith, ALL started at points last year. So you mean to tell me he has the GALL to say Miami doesn’t play Freshman, after us bringing in a haul of 33! Yeah, OK! I think its because he’s not the headliner at DT and would have to share the spotlight with Keith Bryant. I really like Senat but that was a SOUR statement.
    ///////////////////////////////////////

    When i read this, what i got from it that he was saying seems like only the freshmen play here, so even if he came in and played as a freshmen, he’d be playing because that’s what we do and that he wouldn’t feel like he earned his way on the field. I can see someone saying that to a recruit since depth wise we haven’t had the numbers. So at 1st, that actually was making sense if somebody was actually using that angle. But with the way we’ve been able to bring in this class, as well as the depth that should be built up from the class prior along with guys like luther robinson and porter, darius smith, guys won’t have to be forced to play earlier and if they do become a starter, it’ll be because they definitely earned it for sure.

    We’ve definitley got depth being built now. We missed out on 2010 with the state championship wrestler coming to Miami trying to make it a co-ed. Of course with delmar taylor, so we actually got shut out in 2010.

    So now we got lined up as the starters more than likely, curtis porter & darius smit, backed up by maybe luther robinson, corey king, jalen grimble, olsen pierre and than throw in the freshmen coming in, so we’re starting to line-up pretty good on the d-line position again. We’re actually going to have good depth on the defensive side of the ball from here on in from for at least the next 3 years, if the Mayan calendar has been mis-interpreted!

    JSQ and everyone else down there – just got off the phone with my rep from Geico, wondering why in the f*ck my rates just went up an extra $20 each month … I have a 5 year safe driver record and almost every other discount I can get with them, just renewed my policy and literally yelled “what .. the .. f*ck?” in the newsroom when looking at my new payment

    She said that everyone’s rates went up b/c of the pieces of crap out there who do the staged accidents and all the peeps without P.I.P. b/c they basically see it as a payday

    The Tampa area got hit hard, Jacksonville is 2nd but the Miami/Dade area is the worst and off the charts with it

    Might make me go start going “Dexter” on anyone/everyone that does that staged accident stopping short crap .. and I’d do it with a smile on my face, with the little green gecko standing on my shoulder, smiling as well

    Huh???

    I pay 2400 a yr for my ride and adding another car would bring me down to 2200.

One things for sure, coach haggins is running a defensive tackle farm system up their in trailerhassee.

    I could careless, i don’t like nfl cry-babies myself and brady fits that category. That’s why i laughed when they said he could play in any area, lol, how, the qb was allowed to get back than. The only reason they’re able to play that empty backfield spread crap these days is because you don’t have to worry about your qb getting hit after he releases the ball. in the old days, they wouldn’t care how many balls brady completed in the 1st quarter cause they knew he’d be gun shy half-way thru it by the time they kept calling cornerback blitzes, enuff hits round the abdomen section will do that to you.

    That’s why six, you’re fooling yourself if you’re saying brady si better than marino, lol, hell brady is not even better than eli and i’ve been saying it for a while now, not necessarily on here, but i’m not sure why that man never got his just due, maybe because he’s not up their doing all that barking like his brother, always looking like he’s conducting a got damyum symphony or something, mofo just hike the damyum ball and run the play. eli just goes up their without all that hoopla, and right not it’s 2 to 1 on his brother and 2 & 0 against brady. It’s hard to put points on the board when you can’t get a headstart on what formations the defenses is running.

    Hell they should have never been allowed to go to their 1st superbowl as much as i didn’t care for the raiders and charles woodson, that was a fumble, than after that, they wanna come up with the so called “tuck rule” man, come on, stop trying to cater to one qb cause he plays for the “patriots” whatever.

    As soon as you make brady have to move out of that pocket, that’s why the giants kept bringing pressure up the gut, he starts looking like a duck out of water, interception, safety(that’s backwards), almost nothing good happens when brady has to move out of the pocket. marino was one of the slickest guys i ever seen in the pocket, for a b that couldn’t move much, although i got marino beating tom brady in a footrace all day, marino made alot of guys miss in that pocket, brady is not even on marino’s level.

    marino got 5000 yards before all these soft rules weree put into place, and he did it in a time where there were more marquee db’s in the league and safeties.

    I can go on, but i’ll stop right their! I would’ve luv to have seen brady play in the 80′ or 90’s, he would still be a back-up qb because he’d be to scared to play!

    But I still think Dan is the greatest pure thrower ever, with Aaron Rodgers on pace to push him.
    Unfortunately for Marino….A quarterback sometimes has to do more than throw the ball really, really, well.

    More on Senat from Bakas…

    He’s a talented prospect who liked Miami.

    He went to JR Day here a few weeks ago and left without an offer.

    FSU offered and that’s a safe choice for him right now.

    If the Canes later offer, which is very possible, NSD is still a long time away.

    SO that would explain it, FSU offered and we didn’t. The KID said we didn’t. MAYBE that is the love he’s talking about FSU showed. HA! Makes sense now.

    Not going to say who’s the better QB, but just as a pure thrower, hard to find anyone better than Marino. His release was so quick it was hard to believe. Maybe only Namath had a similar release. He could put it in tight spaces with the flick of his wrist.

    February 7, 2012

    The difference between marino and all these qb’s now and even back than, the ones who won superbowls didn’t have some azz backwards headcoach running the show in the 80’s with a 1965 mentality. The either made sure they had a strong consistent defense or at least a running game. When you start paying jb brown top dollars like he was a premier db, you definitely are heading in the wrong direction. jb brown couldn’t cover me.

    The term “vintage marino” came from the fact that, that man went after defenses, the more they came at him the more he went at them. My main man jim “crash” jensen was hell out their, but when he becomes your go to pass catcher, you’re in trouble. Went from speed receivers in clayton and duper down to oj mcduffie and orande gadsen and marino still put up numbers.

    Dear NCAA,

    On behalf of ACC fans, schools and media members who have grown weary of writing and reading the title, ‘NCAA committee on infractions,’ I kindly request that you put a stamp on all investigations regarding Georgia Tech, Miami and North Carolina and mail it in. Overnight. Express delivery.

    Please?

    If these cases continue to drag out much longer, ACC fans will know the members of the NCAA’s enforcement staff better than their team’s starting lineups. Marvin Austin is going to be a veteran in the NFL by the time UNC’s decision comes down. Text messaging will be outdated by the time you figure out whether Georgia Tech’s latest violation was major or minor. Miami quarterback Jacory Harris will be selling insurance before you determine if the Canes need to suffer through another bowl ban. Heck, the ACC has already expanded by two and figured out the schedule for it while you continue to mull over the Tar Heels’ violations of two years ago.

    The storylines have grown old. At Miami and North Carolina, two coaches and staffs who had absolutely nothing to do with the previous infractions have taken over and are trying to move on. None of them have any idea what you’re doing, yet they all insist they’re complying with you. What more do you want? Lunch at the Varsity? Tickets to the UNC-Duke game on Wednesday? VIP access to a South Beach nightclub?

    Sorry, no more extra benefits here in the ACC. It learned its lesson. Feel free to close the book on it. Like, yesterday.

    Sincerely,
    The ACC blogger

    pb – craziness. I switched to Geico b/c the company I’d been with for a few years pulled out of Florida, along with some other smaller insurance companies

    Even on the phone yesterday with the rep, I asked about any other discounts I could get. She looked, said I had almost every one except for some kind of partnership discount (if you’re an alum of certain universities, if you’re a member of certain organizations such as the American Heart Association, etc.) – I then just asked her if Geico could send me 3 big ass advertising magnets you could put on your car that had their name and number on it, she just laughed and said that’d be a good idea

    I didn’t laugh, I was f*cking serious

    She then was telling me about how our Governor Palpatine Scott was supposed to be working on the whole fraud thing here in Florida …. alriiiiight

    I’d be his biggest fan if he did something about it, I don’t care if the guy is clueless or what. I’ve got a nice story about him coming into our station to do an interview, I’m wearing a Navy SEALs shirt, I go talk to him, he looks at my shirt, looks at me, looks at my shirt and then asks with a straight face if I was a former SEAL … I said, “um, Governor Scott … I’m your robotic camera op”

    Yep.

    I’m going to look if my work has any discounts with other car insurance agencies and if that would save me some coin

    Good idea, Six.

    Just saw this on the FL Bar site:

    The GEICO Auto Insurance Program offers quality car insurance with 24-hour sales, policy and claims service. Florida Bar members may also qualify for additional discounts. Call today for a free quote.

    – – – – – –

    An attorney drafted that ish.

    “MAY . . .”

    Huff. It’s probably like $5.

    If they find out you are a litigator they probably increase your rate.

    Unfortunately no, I am just naturally hospitable.

    I do have the energy drink that Mark uses for the daiquiri wacker.

    Not the same without the vodka and limeade though. 🙁

    Probably a good thing that Mark and I don’t work for the same firm.

    ROFL, it all makes since now, cause i was saying damyum, this guy came out of nowhere but is on point, seems like he’s been around for awhile. Than when i asked about the mayweather-cotto fight, sh_t head answered too. lol, well now you know, never underestimate the power of the hometeam from here on in.

    The funny part about tracy howard committing to me was seeing coach do noff jump up pointing at whoever & p.w. in their pound fisting everybody an all i’m thinking is, ok, the man coming in now, not because of yall 2, but mainly because of his boy malcom and the rest of the boyz. Now go out their and make sure yall don’t become idiots in using the talents yall will have a chance to coac hnow. All this celebrating, we’ll see what yall do with all the talent yall getting real soon.

    If you have ESPN classic….Turn it on.

    There is gonna be a sequence where Terrell throws five or six punches, and Ali slips every single one, with his hands at his waist.

    People only remember the Liston, Foreman, and Frazier fights. The best Ali’s you’ll ever see, were vs Terrell, Patterson, (the first one) and Cleveland Williams. ESPECIALLY the Williams fight.

    Key West is second only to Las Vegas in trashiness for spring break. And Miami Beach and several other Florida cities are in the Top 10.

    Coed Magazine just listed its America’s Top 10 Trashiest Spring Break Destinations, using as criteria the presence of one or more Hooters restaurants; how many strip clubs, tattoo parlors and liquor stores there are; whether the city hosts an annual motorcycle week; and whether film crews from Girls Gone Wild produce footage there.

    City Commissioner Mark Rossi owns a Duval Street complex containing several bars, a pizza restaurant and a strip club. He laughed when told of the ranking.

    “I don’t think so,” Rossi said. “That has never been my experience.”

    Coed Magazine Editor Neal Lynch, in comments made to http://www.ABCNews.com, clarified the intent of the “trashy” descriptor: “Typically, people associate trashy with things of poor quality, however, we associated the word with enjoying guilty pleasures. Like reality television but in real life, where you can have the most amount of fun with the least amount of money.”

    Here’s part of what Coed Magazine says about the Southernmost City:

    “Maybe it’s the fact that Key West is the southernmost … place in the lower 48 states or that it claims to have never had a frost, but this place is a continuous party. During the high Spring Break season, open container laws are not enforced.”

    Florida was well-represented in Coed Magazine’s Top 10. In descending order after Vegas and Key West are South Padre Island, Texas; Daytona Beach; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Miami Beach; Panama City Beach; Fort Myers; Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; and San Diego, Calif.
