Good write up. Hard to argue against Allen. I think one year four of his linemen played in the NFL. Ted is GOAT in my mind with all due respect to Ray, Ed and ST. If I remember, Burt block a last second two point conversion by noles to ruin about a season that might have given them a shot at title before we got ours. The original heartbreaker for the feather people. Allen was great.
I agree with your Ted comment...watching that guy play left one with the impression he was from another planet as on every defensive play he was somehow all over the field making impossible plays.

Is it Earnie, Ernie or Erny?

@Earnest T. Bass, the HERD and the Slurpers are united in wanting to know.
Well, my best friend, 'Otis the Town Drunk' calls me, Earnest T.

'Barney Fife' and I were once very close, but that relationship ended after I jokingly compared him to some of the HERD members, which he believes was the lowest blow one could ever administer to another sane human being. Proving there are some lines of decency you simply don't cross. Again Barney...I AM SORRY!!

You're welcome, KWConch. Even during the lean years (1950's thru most of the 1970's) the Canes had some great coaches and players, although not enough to make them a national power. I agree 100% with you that more coaches like Coach Allen makes much better teams and positive futures for the kids. By the way; played several high school football games in Key West (1968 & 1970).
How the hell are you at that age and so youthful and exuberant?

C'mon! You really wanted to ask me; "At your age how can you still be alive." Yet, I do appreciate you delicately approaching that elephant in the room.
I'm stunned. I thought we were closer in age. I was born in 66. You're doing way better than me with the energy you have to take on all these young guys in here. I'll trade you testosterone levels. Whatever you have I could use a dose of.

I’d like a bottle or two myself.

My demented advice:

If you haven't already purchased a speed bag and heavy bag I suggest you do so and beat the living hell out of them every day. Next, mix in a daily hour of high-intensity aerobic exercise, along with push-ups, sit-ups, and weights. Finally, have your doctor prescribe a barrel full of Cialis then have sex with someone else other than yourself (preferably a woman, although I don't judge) for 6 days and rest on the 7th day, then wash, rinse and repeat.

I spread a very close friend and super Canes fans ashes on the U midfield and later watched a the ball sit right next to the ashes I poured actually saw a little puff as ball snapped.

It was a moment it really was :)

@RVACane ,, try a new lady friend about 15 years younger, you will be surprised what you can squeeze out of an old wrinkled body.

Everything pre Schnelly feels like it took place a different world. I def appreciate hearing about those times, and people
People dont realize until they have an involvement with the program or are historians what our program put out somewhat consistently before schnelly. Wins and losses weren't great but we had some monsters I'm more than proud to call family.
