Gameday blog: FSU 41, UM 39 (F)

Here's today's live blog from Dolphin Stadium as the Canes and Noles throw it down in the rain...

SECOND HALF HIGHLIGHTS, NOTES
> UM starts with great field position in the second half at its own 43, but quickly wastes it with a 3-and-out. Marve goes 1-of-3 on the drive for 4 yards. He was 2-of-8 for 6 yards and 1 INT in the first half.
> Miami was outgained 270 to 52 in the first half with FSU picking up 16 first downs to UM's 4.
Um_logo> The Canes catch the break they needed when Antone Smith fumbles the handoff and Adewale Ojomo recovers at the FSU 18. On the next play, Travis Benjamin comes around on a reverse and scores with 13:45 left in the half. FSU 24, UM 10.
>
The Canes need a stop and simply can't get it. FSU runs the ball right down UM's throat again, scoring a 4-yard run by Antone Smith with 10:50 to play in the third quarter. Freshman Jermaine Thomas highlights the drive with two long runs. FSU 31, UM 10.
>
Another long return by Travis Benjamin gives UM great field position at the FSU 41. But Miami can only score on a 29-yard field goal by Bosher with 7:42 to play in the quarter. FSU 31, UM 13.
>
The Canes catch a break first with an FSU holding penalty. Then, they catch another when FSU punter Shawn Powell drops a high snap and then kicks it out of the back of the end zone for a safety with 5:50 left in the third quarter. FSU 31, UM 15.
>
Here come the Canes. After another nice return by Travis Benjamin to give UM possession at the UM 49, Patrick Nix calls a trick play with a swing pass to Graig Cooper. He then winds up find an open Travis Benjamin for a 51-yard touchdown pass with 5:29 left in the third quarter. We got a ballgame. FSU 31, UM 22.
>
FSU answers Miami again. Graham Cano drills a 35-yard field goal as time expires in the third quarter. FSU had a chance at a touchdown, but missed it when Ponder's pass to Greg Carr went off his fingertips. FSU 34, UM 22.
>
Miami tries to answer, but Robert Marve's pass to an open Leonard Hankerson is short and intercepted by Tony Carter at the FSU 2 to kill the drive with just shy of 11 minutes to play.
> And just when you thought this game couldn't get any wilder... Bruce Johnson blitzed Christian Ponder in the end zone, Sean Spence catches the deflection at the five and runs into the end zone for a touchdown to pull UM to within a score with 11:23 to play. FSU 34, UM 29.
>
Miami needs a stop -- AND FINALLY GETS IT. On third and one, UM linebacker Glenn Cook smacks Antone Smith in the backfield and FSU is forced to punt. Then, it gets wackier, a bad snap hits an upback and after the mess gets sorted out, UM gets possession at the FSU 4 with 9:03 to play.
> The Canes, however, can't cash in with a touchdown. First, an illegal substitution penalty moves UM back yards. A two-yard run by Cooper is followed by an incomplete pass into the end zone to Leonard Hankerson and pass batted at the line of scrimmage by FSU's defense. Bosher then kicks a 24-yard field goal with 8:30 left. FSU 34, UM 32.
> Florida State comes right back answers. Christian Ponder picks up a pair of first downs with his legs and Smith scores on third and goal from the UM 20 when he runs right up the middle with 3:57 left. FSU 41, UM 32.
>
Just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder. Jason Fox scores a touchdown on a run. You can't make this up. Problem is there are only 14 seconds left. It's onside kick time. FSU 41, UM 39.

FIRST HALF HIGHLIGHTS, NOTES
> Miami starts freshman Sean Spence in place of Colin McCarthy at weakside linebacker. Freshman Brandon Harris gets his first career start at cornerback in place of Chavez Grant for the Canes as expected.
> Florida State gets a 43-yard kick return by Michael Ray Garvin to open the game Fsu_logoand picks up a first down on sophomore quarterback Christian Ponder's scramble. But Miami kills the drive when Bruce Johnson picks up the Canes' first interception in the secondary this season by fighting off Greg Carr in the end zone for the ball.
> Robert Marve comes out firing on UM's first possession. His first pass is a bomb that falls incomplete. His second pass gets deflected at the line and almost gets picked. His third pass does get intercepted by Tony Carter at the UM 43-yard line. Not a good start for Marve.
> FSU cashes in after a few UM mistakes. So far, it's been a tough day for Brandon Harris. He missed a tackle and then gets called for pass interference in the end zone on third down to give FSU possession at the UM 2. On the next play, Antone Smith scores on a 2-yard run to give FSU the lead with 6:54 left in the first quarter. FSU 7, UM 0.
> Miami's second possession is unspectacular. Graig Cooper gets two carries and no yards. He then catches a screen and goes nowhere on 3rd and 10. Matt Bosher's first punt of the day goes 47 yards.
> The Noles move down the field on their third possession and keep picking on Brandon Harris who misses another tackle on a pass play to Bert Reed that produces a 17-yard gain. Miami's defense though stiffens and stops FSU on fourth down at the UM 36 when Spencer Adkins knocks down Antone Smith in the backfield for a loss.
> Cooper finally gets the Canes' offense moving on drive No. 3. He picks up 10, 5 and then 13 yards and moves the Canes offense down to the FSU 35. But on the next play, Marve gets sacked for a nine-yard loss by Neefy Moffett. On the next play, FSU brings the heat again and Marve escapes before throwing an incompletion. The drive eventually fizzles and Miami pins FSU at its 11-yard line on a punt. Marve is of 1-of-6 so far on the day with 0 yards and 1 INT.
> Florida State is running right through the Canes. Christian Ponder literally runs right through the center of Miami's defense for a 55-yard run before Brandon Harris finally wrestles him down at the UM 27-yard line. Two plays later, Smith runs right up the middle for a 19-yard touchdown run with 10:08 to play. It could be a long day for the Canes. FSU 14, UM 0.
>
Miami's fourth possession starts like the last one finished -- with the Canes backing up. Derek Nicholson smacks Derron Thomas in the backfield for a 6-yard loss. Miami punts and FSU takes over at its own 23 after a 57-yard punt by Bosher.
> WQAM reports defensive end Eric Moncur has been taken to the locker room with a lower body injury.
> The Noles score again and this is turning into a blowout. Greg Carr hauls in a 15-yard pass from Ponder in front of Bruce Johnson, capping a 9-play, 77-yard drive with 3:24 left. Brandon Harris got flagged for pass interference on the drive to keep it alive. Antone Smith continues to blow past UM's defense on the drive, picking up big chunks. FSU 21, UM 0.
>
And the big return Randy Shannon predicted from Travis Benjamin finally happens. He takes the ensuing kickoff 59 yards to the FSU 38-yard line before Michael Ray Garvin takes him down. Jacory Harris comes in at quarterback and immediately gets smacked for a 9-yard loss. Two plays later, Florida State gets the ball back when Harris gets pressured and Dekota Watson picked off the pass at the FSU 42-yard line.
> FSU adds three with a 53-yard field goal by Graham Gano with 1:03 to play. Another key play on the drive involves freshman Brandon Harris, who gets beat. FSU 24, UM 0.
> Jacory Harris finally gets Miami's offense on the board. He moves UM downfield with a 20-yard pass to Leonard Hankerson. Moments later, Hankerson had a drop in the end zone. Three plays later, Matt Bosher comes in and kicks a 28-yard field goal as time expires. FSU 24, UM 3.

PREGAME
It's time to throw it down. The Canes and Noles will smash heads this afternoon at Dolphin Stadium at 3:30 p.m. The game will be broadcast regionally on ABC and ESPN2, which shows you how far this rivalry has fallen in the last few years. Not much. I know some folks say this rivalry doesn't matter anymore. It may not be the best game anymore, but I guarantee you it still will be one of the top two or three rated games of the weekend.

ESPN's Lee Corso said on College Gameday this week these programs will never get back to where they used to be. I disagree. In two years, Miami and FSU could both be ranked in the Top 5 when they meet at Dolphin Stadium again. There are so many young, talented players on both of these teams. I think the worst is in the past for both of these programs.

OK, now that I got that off my chest, its time to get you get ready for kickoff. Before we get to this week's Market Report, here are my keys to the game for a Canes' victory.

KEYS TO THE GAME
1. Take advantage of the youth and inexperience on FSU's offensive line: The depth chart will show you FSU starts three freshman and two sophomores on its front line. But the truth is the Noles have two starters in right guard Rodney Hudson (14 starts) and center Ryan McMahon (16 starts) who aren't pushovers. Both were freshmen All-Americans. Miami has to attack the right guys today -- that's the right side of this line where Will Furlong and Zerbie Sanders are. Not only do the Canes need to do a better job putting pressure on the quarterback. But they also have shut down FSU's running game up the middle. Joe Joseph, Marcus Forston, Dwayne Hendricks and Antonio Dixon have to show up today.

Robert_marve2. Protect Robert Marve: Florida State's run defense is one of the best in the country and I'm expecting them to do a good job slowing down UM's running game, which is already without Javarris James. That means Robert Marve is likely going to have to deliver the big plays on offense today. So far this season, Marve has had plenty of time to throw. I expect FSU to turn up the heat today. The Noles have 13 sacks in four games this season. Remember what Kyle Wright's first start was like? Nine sacks. If Marve feels to much heat, turnovers are bound to happen. Marve is going to get dirty today. He just has to have some time to make plays.

3. Win in the Red Zone: Miami-Florida State games always come down to who best takes advantages of their scoring opportunities. Field position is always huge. But even bigger is what you do with the football when you have a chance to score. So far, Miami has done a great job in the red zone. They've scored 87.5 percent of the time, second best in the ACC. The Canes simply can't afford to have a dropoff today. Defensively, UM has to step up its game. We saw what happened when North Carolina got in the red zone last week. They scored every time. Miami needs at least one or two stops this week.

MARKET WATCH
Buy 'em
> Robert Marve, quarterback: Nobody is going to have a bigger impact on today's game for the Canes than Marve. You could say that for every game. But I really feel he's going to have to shoulder the load today. So far, Miami has shown great balance in its playcalling. Last week, it was an even 33-33 run/pass. I expect UM to have to throw the ball a little more today. And I'm calling for Marve to be the star.
Eric_moncur> Eric Moncur, defensive end: Since coming back from injury and the death of his mother, Moncur has had moments where he's starred. He had the interception against Texas A&M. Last week, he was one of two Canes to have a sack against Carolina. Today, he'll be starting opposite freshman left tackle Andrew Datko, a kid who was on St. Thomas Aquinas' state championship team a year ago. I'm picking Moncur to eat him up and lead UM's defensive charge.

On The Bubble
> Sean Spence, linebacker: Guess who is going to take the majority of the snaps in place of the injured Colin McCarthy. The star freshman has all the hype. Today is his opportunity to back it up. I expect the Noles to come running right at him. If Spence has a good day, UM should have a good day. If he struggles, the Noles could have another huge day on the ground. Spence needs to step up today.
> Tyrone Byrd, right tackle: If FSU is going to come after anyone on Miami's offensive line its Byrd, who will start in place of the injured Reggie Youngblood. Chris Rutledge will also see time at tackle. But today is the day Byrd, a fifth-year senior, has to play his best game as a Cane. If he and Rutledge struggle, it could be a long day for Marve and Miami's offense.
> Brandon Harris, cornerback: According to the depth chart we got today and following what we heard this week from practice, Harris will get his first real start at corner today opposite Bruce Johnson. He's played only nickelback this year. Considering UM's secondary woes, there is going to be a lot of pressure on Harris to have a good day today. And you better believe FSU is going to try and come after him.

Trade 'em in
> Richard Gordon, tight end: Last week, Gordon had two balls thrown his way and he dropped both of them. I'm expecting Chris Zellner and Dedrick Epps to see the majority of snaps today at tight end.

> My prediction -- UM 20, Florida State 19: In traditional UM-FSU fashion, I expect this game to come down to the final moments. Ultimately, I believe Marve will be the difference. I see the Canes coming from behind late to take the lead and then finishing this week to stay above .500. FSU is going to miss a field goal when it matters.

I'm with you LAcane. The team isn't quitting (they may not be real good, but their not quitting). The fans are.

How many of you guys out there "suffered" through the drought of the 90's?

Canesrule,

I would give anything for another 5-7 season. After today, I don't see how we can get to 5 wins. I see maybe 2 more wins this year. Duke and Virginia. I hope....

we don't need to be in a drought right now. there is no need, we have the talent, we have the passion. the only thing missing is preparation. yes,our guys are young and they will make mistakes, i am ok with that, but in the past two weeks, we were out coached, not out played.

I suffered through the 90's living in Tallahassee. I had to put up with FSU's run. I'm not giving up on the kids just the coaches. I'll be right in front of the TV next week against UCF.

Im tired of you fair weather f-ing fans. Yea the U loss, but imma tell you i saw more fight outta the canes than ive seen in the last 3-4 yrs. You think just because we had a top 5 recruiting class that the U is just gonna step on the field and win u r crazy. We r inexperience, and you could see that. I dont know how many times i saw the lbs not knowing their assignments before plays, also the young wr's not knowing where they are to be positioned before a play. But at the same time i can see the talent. The U was down 24-3 and came back to within 34-32. The talent is there. The team just needs game experience and the knowledge which comes from game experience. The juniors and seniors are not leaders, so the U is building leaders through fresh and sophomores which can only become leaders through game experience. All im saying is the talent is here and will continue to enroll here. I remember the early Butch days and they werent so good. No one should be calling for Shannons or any coaching staffs head. The team is on the right track and will be dominating next year and for years to come. Its just sad to see fair weather fans. I live in michigan. I cant stand Michigan St., Michigan or the Lions but atleast their fans are loyal and stick with their teams through the rough times. Canes will be back, just hang in there.

Dream the dream esham313.... Dream the dream....

esham313,

I know you are encouraged with the young players but we just lost to a garbage offense in FSU and that is inexcusable. We made them look like the best offense the country and they are a fraud. Like I said before, once they play a team with good coaching they will go down. When was the last time you could say FSU's staff out coached another team? It's been a while and they did it today. How embarrassing!!!!

"Now I'm outta here." - NJshoreCane

U must have been 1 of the 22,000 fans in attendance who said the same thing halfway through thr second quarter.

IN ALL KINDS OF WEATHER WILL ALWAYS BE FAIR WEATHER

Posted by: canesrule | October 04, 2008 at 08:28 PM

Once again the Clown speaks and I am amused. I've been around for 31 years and I'll always be around.

The attendance issue for 'Canes has always been there. Nothing new. Just another Clown regurgitating old and tired stuff that I've been hearing forever.

I'll be there for 3 more games this year, even though I'm 1000 miles away. I don't care if theres 600 or 60,000 there with me.

I know though, I will never meet the Clown. Things my generation save for face to face encounters, the Clown spews from cyberspace.

Okay, what is going on? We are suppose to be winning.
I can answer my own question.
What's going on is that Nix's needs to go to Office Max and get a coaching for dummies playbook and maybe he will realize that you are not suppose to call the same plays all game every game and maybe he will realize that playing ZONE all game gives away alot of yards.The other teams are only take what you are giving them. Five yards here, ten yards there, get together man.
Now for defense, Shannon would you please start calling your defense again, we are in need of some real schemes.
Now for the players, get those old played out, has beens out of the game #83,and #85 there are no words to express their pathetic attempts to catch the ball.
Put the freshmen in they are ready. We need a new look and they will give it to us. Those freshmen were the only ones out their playing the game with heart, give them boys the starting positions NOW it is way pass time.
Okay, Marve I like you buddy but you are starting to look a little like Kyle Wright out there please don't slip into that slup, I know its not all your fault you are working with simple, basic, repetative,ignorant plays. Your coach is pulling the offensive line down and D-line is right behind you in this downward spiral.

And Yes, I did see how the clock did not stop at 2 minutes they pushed to 1min 50 sec after the replay

tally cane you will see the truth whether you want to admit it or not. Canes will be back, remember my name when the U is dominating again, and think back and say esham313 was right

WE WERE OUT COACHED NOT OUT PLAYED!!!!!!!!

TALLY CANE I agree with one thing you have said fire Nix and hire Rob Chudzinski that is a brilliant Idea. The Browns did great last year on offense and they are 1-3 right now. Lets hope they do poorly and he gets fired and comes home.. He was are tight end coach as well as the Offensive coordinator during are 2001 championship. He left 2003 and thats when the tight ends at the U went down the toilet and are offense started struggling. Bring him back again!!! As for tonight it was a great game and I loved watching every minute of it! even though losing sucks. GO Canes

Wow! We gave up 41 damn points!!!! That defense is terrible! The quarterback had 140+ yards on the ground. THE QUARTERBACK!!! Let's start being realistic guys. This season is all about becoming bowl eligible. Our defense SUCKS!!!

Nobody can blame our offense this game. They put up 30 points (the defense and special teams put up 9). That defense cost us the last two weeks. Bowl eligibility...? Where are our wins this year?

My recommendations for future hires:

Tommy Tuberville - Head Coach
Rob Chudzinski - OC
Ken Dorsey - QB coach

Auburn fans are ungrateful for the job Tuberville has done. Please fire him!!!!! Miami needs a real coach!!!

Vandy beat Auburn... Vandy beat Auburn... Vandy is undefeated.... The world must be coming to an end.

miami scored 39 at home and lost.

as rabbit eared as nix looked in the first half he came out and called a hell of a game in the second half. he came up with creative and effective ways to get the ball to his play makers.

bill young deserves the lion's share of the venom being spit around here. his d has gotten worse every game. what worked for fsu in the first half worked as well or better for them in the second half and that is just crazy unacceptable. fsu was picking up third and long like they were controlled by ea with the sliders turned up. unacceptable. we have scored 63 points in the last 2 games and didn't win either of them. wtf?

marve looks young and good.
nix somehow found a pair at the half.
travis benjamin looks like a revelation.
sean spence looks like the truth.
bill young should be able to keep 40 off the board. period.

RIGHT NOW, THE ONLY THING I SEE GOOD FROM THIS TEAM ARE ALL THE FRESHMEN, WE NEED TO GET RID OFF OF ALL THEM COKER KIDS, ESPECIALLY SHIELDS AND HANKERSON, BOTH GUYS ARE TOO MUCH OF A DROPPER, THEY MIGHT AS WELL JUST PLAY A DIFFERENT POSITION COZ THEY OBVIOUSLY DON'T CUT IT TO BE RECEIVERS, I SAW ALDARIUS PLAY, HE DON'T SEEM TO BE RATTLED, SAME WITH BENJAMIN, THAT KID WILL PLAY THE SUNDAY'S GAME IN THE FUTURE!

Who wants to bet Travis Benjamin doesn't start next week? It took our coaches 5 games to figure out they have a playmaker... I know they will blow it again.

Benjamin won't start at receiver, but kr and pr. Look for #4 and #82. A. Johnson and Kayne.

It makes me sick to see North Carolina winning against UCONN. I'm tired of hearing about the U is rebuilding. Carolina is winning now. Our coaches must go.

Carolina has NFL receivers. Our db's are terrible!

Carolina's HC isn't in his second year.

if you dont believe coaching matters,and talent wins-check the NC score. butch's boys will be ranked this week.in only 2 years, without #1 recruiting classes,he has NC winning. its not all roses there, but i'd rather be an ugly 4-1 than an even uglier 2-3.its only getting worse for UM. FIRE SHANNON NOW

BWAhahahahHHAAAHAHAHAH

UUUUUU LOSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Way to get your arse kicked by that fraud offense .

UUUUUU SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

FSU did that lame war chant all up IN YOUR HOUSE you pathetic losers

Benjamin looks like a giant H O M O with that she weave. Somebody smack that punk and tell him to cut those girl extensions off.

HOW G A Y CAN "U" GET ?

Delandcane,

I agree. I'd rather win ugly with a 3rd string QB than put up with our garbage. UNC has half the talent we have and they have managed to win. I wonder why? COACHING!!!! WE DON'T HAVE IT!!!

It looks like Benjamin was the pitcher tonight as he was giving it to FSU all night long!!! Why don't you find another board to post your crap.

I think I'll start looking forward to basketball season. Jack McClinton is a baller... Frank Haith and the U are the new face of the program. When is midnight madness?

Marve with business like performance 2 TD's 250 yards.

U mean 2 picks and 125 yards ?

No one cares HOW LONG you've been around NJshorecane. Seriously, NOBODY cares. Your team S U c K S . And will continue to S U C K for a while until Marble Mouf gets his walking papers. Hopefully you keep him around for a long time so DuhWho can continue to be a punching bag.

DuhWho won't even sniff a bowl game this year. Just picture that cane fan

NO BOWL

has anyone even noticed shannons attitude toward the whole losing thing. he acts like he is some established coach who has proven himself. as a head coach, he has only proved he cant be a head coach. the scary thing is ,he acts like the job is his no matter what. he shows NO excitement or any emotion at all.its time for someone in the univ. to have a talk with RS. the new AD should be all over him. alot of wasted money, and unfortunately, alot of talent is wasting its time with this moron. FIRE SHANNON

It looks like Benjamin was the pitcher tonight as he was giving it to FSU all night long!!! - Tally cane

Agreed, he did play well. But he still looks like a GIANT H O M O with extensions weaved into his hair.

DOES ANYBODY FEEL LIKE WHEN THE CANES ARE PLAYING THEY ARE PLAYING A PICK UP FOOTBALL GAME OUT AT THE PARK OR THE STREETS?

IT JUST LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE JUST WINGING EVERYTHING NO PREPERATION, NO ADJUSTMENTS, THEY DONT USE COOP, BENJAMIN, AND EPPS ENOUGH, HE KEEPS PLAYING KHALIL JONES, SHIELDS FOR WHAT?????

HOW IN THE H** CAN YOU USE ALL YOUR TIMEOUTS AND GET CALLED FOR TOO MANY MEN IN THE HUDDLE???

SHANNON IS IN OVER HIS HEAD AND IS JUST WINGING EVERYTHING.

Shannon is the only coach we can afford. As I posted above, he is 38th highest paid coach in the country. College football has changed. You must spend money to win.

"DOES ANYBODY FEEL LIKE WHEN THE CANES ARE PLAYING THEY ARE PLAYING A PICK UP FOOTBALL GAME OUT AT THE PARK OR THE STREETS?

What you fail to realize is that HE IS WHAT HE IS !!!!! Shannon isn't making little oops here and there. NO! He consistently makes bone headed decisions and has shown a complete lack of grasp for coaching's finer details. He's WAY OVER HIS HEAD

But please don't ever ever fire him. It's too much fun watching you guys suffer and squirm with Marble Mouf at the helm.

In reality we have been lucky with our coaches. We have won 5 titles with 4 different coaches. All good things must come to an end and it started with Coker and is continuing with Shannon. Hopefully we can find another diamond in the rough coach like we have had in the past or we pony up the money to pay a high profile coach.

Excellent, dead on accurate. It's refreshing to see a fan of DuhWho who is actually objective. You hit the nail on the head Tallycane. Shannon is a slow train to NOWHERE. Cane fan STILL can't get his head around this. Cane fan is starting to accept it as we see Marble Mouf getting ROASTED on message boards.

Bil Young...oh, where art thou blitz master??? Did we ever set a spy on Ponder?? We made him look like the next coming of Teabag!
The only receivers holding on to the ball were Aldarius, Benjamin, and a few other frosh....Hankerson and Farquason, being taller, can perhaps replace Bruce "I made an interception but allowed a TD and 100+ yds receiing" Johnson and Brandon "Deer in headlights" Harris where they aren't expected to catch the ball!

igfnore da U, just shows you hate cause u jelous

I live in the midwest and Randy came here two years in a row stating, while true, that the U is going to the national championship every year, he won't be around much lonmger if he can't 'game day' coach!

...one last post before I put this miserable college football saturday behind me... the only time I saw Shannon fired up was when we took our 2nd TO in the 2H...he should have been on the headset with Young askign what the _____!?!?!?

Fire the O coordinator for the 3rd of 4th games were I coulda outcoached him. Sorry, I don't call for coaches heads. EVER. This is the first time I think I've genuinely felt this way. Hell I wanted to hold on to Larry Coker. I want us to rehire Solinger


Donny would straighten them out

I wonder if Marve is saying the better team didn't win today. Again. Same as last week.

In the name of jesus, we will comeback and win this game.

Posted by: Canes | October 04, 2008 at 05:57 PM

U mean Hey'sus ?

I'm sick of this crap!! Every week we have to contend with the opponent and the officials. Ridiculous.

Posted by: Tally Cane | October 04, 2008 at 06:33 PM


Ahhh, but U can make up for it by playing Offense, Defense and Special Teams ...

Get Used to it

Jesus , U still be on the officials ?

This has got to be one of the most topsy-turvy college FB games I've ever seen.


turvy-topsy perhaps ?

every year, September through December

What's weird to me about Hankerson is he'll make a very difficult catch but drop the routine.

Posted by: Russell | October 04, 2008 at 07:02 PM


That would be because you have no idea what skills it actually takes to catch a football ...

That's why it seems weird to U

When it was 31-21, why didn't the "U" go for 2 at that point? They go for 2 and make it at that point and for 2 at the end of the game then it is tied going into OT. Scratched my head on that one.

Posted by: NYCFIUFan | October 04, 2008 at 07:46 PM

Because you're too stupid to know better ...

Yeah, losing sucks, but that's life. You win some you lose some. I was at UM during the probation years. We lost more than we won, but the team and the fans were still all about the U.

Yeah, old games in the O.B. Not West Hollywood
