STORYLINES
> The Canes are coming off a 38-10 win at home over Bethune-Cookman and have won three in a row in the series against Georgia Tech by at least 16 points in each game. But UM heads into this game 14-point underdogs because a lot of the guys who have shutdown the Yellow Jackets on defense are no longer around. UM has just 5 starters back on defense from last year's team that beat Georgia Tech 24-7 at Sun Life Stadium.
> The Yellow Jackets are coming off back to back wins over Presbyterian and Virginia in which they've scored more than 50 points. The Ramblin' Wreck are averaging 374 yards per game on the ground and have a much bigger and aggressive offensive line than in year's past. They also rank in the Top 25 in all major defensive categories and run a unique 3-4 defense UM doesn't face often. Georgia Tech's only loss was a 20-17 defeat in overtime at Virginia Tech.

INJURIES/SUSPENSIONS: The Hurricanes come into the game without starting middle linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle). Safety Vaughn Telemaque (knee) and receiver Allen Hurns (concussion) are back for UM this week.

CANES TO WATCH
> Seantrel Henderson may get his first start of the season today at tackle. Junior Jimmy Gaines and sophomore Gionni Paul will try to fill in for Perryman at middle linebacker.

QUICK NOTES
> Georgia Tech has not allowed a point in the second or third quarters this season. The Yellow Jackets are outscoring opponents 52-0 in those two quarters.
> Tech opponents have scored a combined 43 points this season, with 15 of those points coming on the game’s last play from scrimmage or in overtime.
> Three of the ACC’s top 10 rushers are Yellow Jackets: Tevin Washington (t-2nd), Zach Laskey (6th) and Orwin Smith (10th).
> Tech will be facing one of the ACC’s top offensive threats Saturday in Miami’s Duke Johnson, who leads the ACC in scoring, touchdowns and all-purpose yards, and is tied for second in rushing.

-----------
Tim, the cretin, with his new User Name. What a baby you are.

inimounts, Morris is OK, but never looks comfortable out there, like he's in control.
Not sure if it's how the plays are coming in, but he just looks jittery at times.

Wide open.

I seems everyone blames Morris and the coaches when UM losses. Well you do you blame when they win then?

imawriter you are a joke, just like each player and coach on that team is. I am not a baby. I know when I see a TRUE CANE player and FAN. You are not a TRUE FAN. AND there is not ONE player on this team is worthy of claiming they are from the U.

I don't beleive Ryan is a better Qb than Morris, now that is my opinion on that! He certainly is not in the elite status of what we use to have back in the day. I was around with Jim Kelly and sat in the staduim as a HS receruit and heard him being booed. Given coaching Morris can be a star, he has the arm and the physical tools

Scott stepping up

Morris sucks and so does his backup. Until Golden is fired nothing will change.

Darin have u seen Ryan? Because I have.
Fans like u bug the crap out of me.
How many tds does Morris have in how many games? What's his record?
End of
Discussion

Duke would not even make Alabama or any other SEC teams roster. That is how bad the U has become with talent.

Actually, I think imawriter is both a cane
And dolphin fan, tho I could be mistaken. Tim, darin, go canes1 sad to say we could do
Without

Twice the acc player of the week. One of the best players from hs, and he's a freshman:

All reasons Tim is a troll.

I think I may be wrong about James. Not just that play, but his average yards per Carry surprises me. How did he hold on to that ball

inimounts, first of all this end of discussion temper tandrum may work on your kids, but not here chief! I will voice my opinion just as your do yours. So check yuor keyboard courage.

Goldens only been at UM for a short period of time an u want him fired already!! So if they get a new coach and they go 6-6 would you want that coach fired? So UM will just hire and fire coaches every year until they win a National Title? Come on no college would have a revolving door like that.

inimounts, who cares about acc player of the week? FSU or Vtech will not compete for the BCS Title. ACC is a weak conference. Miami is the biggest cause of that for hiring people like golden and recruiting Pieces or worthless crap for athletes.

Big time run!!

Oh wait was that James wh just scored with a physical run. He was one of those that uu called out inimounts as being worthless. Hmmmm now I have to think maybe you are the worthless blogger on here.

Johnny1303ification. Alabama did. How many coaches in 6 or 7 years before Saban. Hell 1 of their coaches got fired before signing his contract

the question of the day.... can the defense come thru in the 4th quarter of the game to have a chance here?

Like I said earlier, I am PROUD of our KIDS.
Yes, I'm a UM graduate, and former Fins season ticket holder.
Live out of state the past 30+ years.
Tim is obviously neither a graduate, or a scholar...or a substantive example of humanity.

According to experts South Florida is still a hotbed for Football players. So why is it that FSU and UF only have REAL ATHELETES?

Let's go D!!

Johnny, I think firing Golden and staff would be a positive culture change in the locker room and recruitment arena.

These officials need to be reviewed.
Unreal, late flags, non calls, and the Golden call.

Bad call!

And as much as I hate some of the idiots here, golden, and every player on this team. I hate FSU and UF 10 times more. But I do know when I program is run correctly. And right now the U has no real football program.

DEFENSE!!!

F these ref's they have screwed us over the entire game.

Finally! Chickillo's coming out game of 2012.

Finnie is awful.

Big hit by Dorsett!!! Lol

These penalties.....I don't know what to say. Some of these calls are one sided no doubt. Others we earned.

WTF?? Are these REPLACEMENT REFS????? damn let the kids play.....

we can do this with 10 min left

The golden call changed the game. It was a turning point, no
Doubt.

That's because this game is fixed!

The Tech player turn his back, and the block was barely a block to the side.
This reminds me of an ACC game 4-5 yeas ago at Clemson, I believe, when the Canes got shafted several times, every TD challenged (when the rule wasn't in force)

I've seen at least 5 blatant holds by the Tech receivers and O-Line, no calls.

Dammit Dorsett could still be running!

ooh a pass no for no gain. I love no good talent. NOT

Third down. Another long one.

james in danceing class??? wtf was that

Ooh a run for 1 yard. about to be 3 and out with a punt. What a joke of a team.

These wide receivers are makin Morris look good.

It Ga Tech's game to lose. Tighten up, yellow jackets.

NUmber 4 did not fumble this time. That is a shock.

Great pass and catch..don't you all agree??

DarinD you know firing the coach never helps recruiting. An how would that be positive for players in the lockroom. Really if they get a new coach and go 6-6 you will want him fired. People wanted Eric Spo fired an they won a championship! You can't just hire and fire a coach every year. That's not how you build championship teams

Freshman! Yeah he wouldn't be wanted by any sec team

Dumbass.

Morris is so bad in the red zone it's almost unreal. He CANNOT throw a td pass from the red zone.
