Gameday blog: UM-USF

TAMPA -- The Canes take on the Bulls in the final regular season game for UM. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. Feel free to participate in our discussion below.

Preview: Not having left tackle Jason Fox could mean big problems for the Canes especially against a USF defense that has two stud defensive ends in George Selvie and Jason Pierre-Paul. Orlando Franklin will slide over and start at left tackle and freshman Brandon Washington will get the head nod at left guard. In a way, this game will provide us a good glimpse of what UM could look like up front next year. The Bulls, hungry to make a statement with a sweep of the Noles and Canes, figure to play with plenty of emotion. I'm just having a hard time seeing Miami pulling this one out unless the defense plays above its head. USF 31, UM 24.

the mix of plays is good to see

With Berry U get no jukes; with Coop U get the "grass monster".

Not really happy with punting but good strip....may get cut back though

Is it me... Or do Harland Gunn & Brandon Washington look alot tougher at the guard spots than what we've had all year?

50-0 or more.....no slack whatsoever. Bigger bowl games are at stake.

Where r all canes. I'm here.

Manny you got it wrong this time Jacory is shredding them along with BERRY,BERRY,BERRY!!!!

Must they make a game of this? Why can't the Canes just bury somebody 52-0 and keep the drama out of it? Is it too much to ask?

Our coaching is awful. We dominate, and then we get outcoached every time and it leads to four three and outs. What a joke our offense is. Whipple is complete feast or famine. And a huge part of it is javarris running instead of berry and jacory getting worse every game.

Can't belive manny picked the school that doesn't even know what part of Florida it's really in...

Well manny not only did the d play lights out. The ol on the left side especially dominated usf so far its 31-10 um at moment. Harris got hit like 2 times all game. Washington has done everything u expect a ol man to do keep his nose clean and make his blocks we know hes done that cause u never hear his name called. Franklin has done very good job at lt and gunn/figuroa if they can stop moving early have done good job also.

Hey giving curse helped ruin our blog by making manny have to approve all our comments with his inane dribbling does that mean we should all go ruin his gator blog and tebow love in so they have to do the same thing?

We looked very good today (wish I knew what the last 7 mins or so looked like - thanks abc/espn). Great win for the CANES - focUs on getting ready for the bowl game & recrUiting!!!

As Always GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippee! Made that look easy. This is a glimpse of next years offensive line. Lets get a good bowl invite and continue the development. Give Randy his due and pay him his 3 mil a year.

team played real good football today,those 2 losses really hurt,could've been playin in a bcs bowl

Good call manny hit the nail right on the head with this one.

Worst uniforms I've ever seen. Miami should stop helping Oregon by going out and getting a deal with another uniform company other than the one Oregon that makes stuff with 6 year old asian kids

Manny, Keep picking against UM.... It works! GO CANES!

I know u gotta keep it real with the pick Manny, but USF (S for second rate FL. scrubs) over the U

Crickets chirping here. What's going on Manny? Did you skip the game and go drinking? By the way, the Canes dominated the Bulls, your predictions sucked.

U gotta be on crack not to see how good the Canes looked in those all white uniforms and those white shoes. Randy could have put 50 on the little Bulls but when the game was decided he pulled back to show so respect for Levitt and South Florida. Save the blowout for Florida next time. My man Berry is the Man, just start him and he's a 1000 yard back easily. Good job using the power running game. The only thing I would like to see more sustained intensity thoughout the game even with it pretty much in hand like it was today in the 3rd quarter and Jacory to quit lobbing the ball so much. But other than that no complaints.

berry da truth jus to let yall kno...giv him 20 cars a game next year AND HE WINS DA HEISMAN AND IS A TOP 10 PICK GARENTEED AND MIAMI WINS DA CHAMPIONSHIP

Nice pick Manny, let me know how that plate of crow tastes. LOL
