STORYLINES

> The Canes are coming off a 52-13 loss at Kansas State and looking for serious answers on defense.

> Bethune-Cookman has won eight games in a row. The Wildcats don't just have 11 players on their rosters who were at FBS schools (3 from Rutgers, 2 from Mississippi, 1 from Marshall, Iowa State, UCF, Minnesota and Louisiana Tech) they also maul people up front. Their offensive line from left to right: 6-6, 310; 6-5, 380; 6-4, 270; 6-7, 325; 6-5, 305. Four of those five are upperclassmen.

That same offensive line paved the way for Bethune-Cookman to become the first FCS school since Georgia Southern in the 1999 national championship game to produce three ball carriers with over 100 yards.

The Wildcats have also shown they won't just go away when they fall behind. In its opener versus Alabama State, Bethune-Cookman rallied from 21-0 down to win 38-28. Last week at South Carolina State, they scored 27 unanswered points after being down 14-0 after the first quarter.

INJURIES/SUSPENSIONS: The Hurricanes come into the game without starting safety Vaughn Telemaque (knee) and linebacker Ramon Buchanan (knee). DT Curtis Porter (appendectomy) is still out along with LB Raphael Kirby (knee).

Wow the Canes just fumbled the ball. Bethune is deep in Canes territory. It is amazing that we are down to that level now. Bethune actually has a chance to beat Miami. Unbeleivable.

Touchdown Bethune Cookman. I know that it is early but so far Bethune looks like the better team. This is so sad.

Alright Duke Johnson! He is the best player on the team for sure. He is like one of the old canes. Hopefully, we can get some other players around him in the future.

I can't beleive our defense is so bad. Thank god for Duke Johnson.

DUDE THE COACHES ARE BEING OUT COACHED BY THE BCC STAFF...POINT ..BLANK..PERIOD..IF HE DOESN'T DROP THAT PASS...BCC IS UP 14-7

I didnt need your link dolemite aka dolt. I was already watching online thankyou. However, my question was, why isnt this on tv?

I love all the speed at WR and they throw 2 yard out patterns all the time.

It's not on t.v. because both teams blow. Yes, we suck.

The game is on espn3.com online for most people.

I am beginning to lose faith in al golden as our head coach. Real coaches like nick saban, urban meyer, les miles, hoke, they may have had youth, but they make sure their youth is disciplined and ready for each game.
This team has only a couple players that are. And im sorry, but stephen morris will never be a great qb, and our wide receivers are not good.
Hard to watch, as was thos game last year.

Im going to say it again, morris is not easy to watch. He never has been.

Good answer thanks.

its gonna be a long year......When are people going to realize Stephen Morris is a "very goood back-up" Williams should be starting, he can see over the offensive line, then we wouldnt have to throw so many 2 yard passes. Im truly in Awe at how bad we are now, smh.....I dont care how young we are, that defense is bad, bad, bad..

Duke johnson is great for us, i love him, but hes going to have to get bigger if he is to play in the nfl

Stephen morris js starting because hes older, thats it. I would like us to use both and then if ryan is that much better then use him. Now would be a perfect game to try, because 1 td and 1 int through 2 and a half games is what i expected and he needs off the field.

Too many stupid penalties.

Miami looks so pathetic, this coaching staff sucks!! Morris sucks, I never thought to see this day coming, this coaching staff and QB has to go...

at a certain point Ryan Williams will need to get some snaps...Morris is having an awful game

Dan Sileo has been taking heat from some radio hacks up here in Orlando for his rant on the Canes earlier this week. I applaud him as he said what I've been feeling for some time and with the same passion. I was really hoping Golden was the one that would turn this around, but am not very optimistic at this point. All of the great coaches in the last 15 years have taken respective teams to a title or at least serious improvement in year 2, youth or no youth. This team at this point looks worse than any since pre-1980. Sickening seeing the Smellinoles blowing out Wake and we are getting all we can handle with Bethune!!!

This team is so damn undisciplined!
Good tackle by bush. Love the um corner. Now we just need some
One on mcgee's side

Devon made morris look good there

Go over the middle more. If Morris can't, bring in Williams.

So many stupid penalties.

Its impossible not to be excited for this team, those who arent are fooling yourself. But without good coaches, the players cant develop. Judgement is out on coaching staff, but the northwestern group was the same, great as freshman, never got better because their coaches were awful.
Golden has so far disappointed me, with the way he talks, the way he coaches, and the fact we still dont have a qb for fbs or a good defensive coordinator.

He was wide open, morris is just awful. Had the worst td to int ratio in college before this year (worse than jacory at his worst) he will NEVER be a good qb, he has never been a good qb.

Oh my god, Morris SUCKS! Please please give someone else a chance. Surely the other QBs aren't this bad.

Morris needs to learn to put touch on the ball. Line drive passes cannot be thrown on every pass. Learn how to do it or learn to sit.

why not try Williams at times as the QB? Hell, maybe some of the passes would be completed downfield more often. They rotate just about every other position.

Time for Williams. Morris is not a good QB.
He doesn't look downfield and missing way too many open receivers.

I can see why now they stuck with the underpowered arm of jacpory last year.

Both Coordinators need to be replaced! What good does it have to have a Nascar racer if you grandma is driving it. The University would let a professor with a BA teach a Phd class and thats what NCAA football is at the level we want to be at. Lets say thanks, but we're bringing in PHD level coaches and recruiters!

Did I just come upon a Dolphin blog only less sophisticated.

Its like watching Kenny Kelly out there!

Ive been saying it since the BS game. Replace the whole coahing staff and look to NFL assistants. Golden is way over his head. It was all there if you look at how last year ended and the pick was a hurried and esperate pick by Shalala. Just look at the coaches win/loss record. But green pea 2016 fans are cluless and dont know Miami football so they think this is good since we are in a "re-building year" The coaches should just quit if they had any character. Morris is not the QB for Miami, get used to it. This program will / is already out of control. The senior players wont fight for the coaches...they have lost confidence in them. It's over.

This UM Dline is worse than our Dline. Wait this is our DL!

wish u had jacory now-shannon could done this for the u

really he could have-golden have to go!

Jim gallo your a jerk. What senior players??

Yeah I guess I'll look at the record

1-11
4-8
5-7
9-4
8-4

Notice what happened Temple improved every year. For a team the was kicked out of the MAC, to now being asked into the Big East isn't bad.

Guess it doesn't matter how bad you suck, once this philosophical coaching staff has made a decision they stick with it! If the QB aint making plays put in the backup! Who cares about a guys confidence! Make plays or sit you @ss down!

Someone needs to tell the offense that the endzone is not to the right or left, but right in front of them...

Like I said less sophisticated./
