This defense wants to make me puke!!!!!!! What the heck man! Missed tackles everywhere!!!!! Unreal.

ar you kidding me WHAT E HELL WAS THAT from #36 what kind of weak ase tacke was that Is he blocking or trying to tackle??? that was totaly shameful get him thehell out of there :( piss poor defense again!!!!! the citadel was doing better !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

playing from behind again.not a good start. another coach who seems to NOT be able to get the kids ready each week.

Gionni Paul is 36. Dam we miss perryman! Our passing game is awesome tho!!!! STEP IT UP D!!!!!

good drive. thats the way you match scores, defense, it's defense turn. lets go

yea that poor tackle/block from G paul should land him on the bench, get kirby in by this lvl they should know how to wrap up on a tackle..... thank God for the quick score to get back to a tie, come on Defense get the ball back

is there a link to watch the game on

You can watch it on ESPN3 or on ESPNU

welcome back mr hurns, mike james running hard. like that.

good job D an Offense, keep it going lets stop um agai and put up some more , kee the heat on them !!

"U"nbelievable. keep the foot on the gas, lets blow em out

i can eat those words in my first post, WOW incredible. i love this keep on rollin' canes

i live in raleigh, but im from miami . i need the U to pound the hell out of NC state. on the radio everyone thinks miami is a second rate team and NC state should win.

mike james goooo

Love what I'm seeing from the offense..Would like to see the Defense tackle better and put more pressure on that QB

oh man, we had them down. 4 qtrs though. we win the first, need to win the 2nd now.

football IQ. It trumps a strong arm or athleticism in a QB. How in the world do youthrow an int here? Please tell me---how? Why do these QBs keep torturing us with that (Jacorry and now Morris?????)

Or was it Fisch? All youhad to effen do was punch it in from 2 yds. My G-d why ?

Why throw when u have the ball at the 2? State was tired, had called a timeout. We can't get 2 yards? Oh we'll...it seems we are in better condition so we need to pour it on.

man : ( we cant just go out and win a game we gotta drop passes, have poor play calling and let other teams right the hell back in the game : ( wth is with this?? this should be over, and now if the defense doesnt do something it is a friggin 2 point game again : ( sick to watch sometimes, just when ya feel good they totaly screw up again

Big hit!!!!

i cant believe he got the 1st down. great job botts

that was a pathetic series. last 2 times, points off the board

FAIL!!! again , wtf cant we find 1 tight end who can catch a football 2 missed TDS 14 points off the board thx to our tight ends dropping passes , we just find a way to keep other teams in the game --- I would just like to see a hungry team that can play a complete game without so many fails along the way... the talent is there, just not the mind.

We need to trust the run...it wears a team down

When are we going to get that Stephen Morris is horrible in the red zone? No excuse

even the announcers are asking what team we are gonna see from quarter to quarter.... I mean a good team would be on coasting right now alrdy, our guys just cant seem to keep their heads in the game and put the dagger in..... I sure hope that comes along sooner than later cause we get alot tougher teams ahead..

THis is gross. Its disgusting. I cant even watch this. Does anyone want to buy my Notre Dame tickets? Because Fisch et al will surely find a way to lose that game.

inimounts both those passes hit the tight ends hands NO EXCUSE , it wasnt the best pass fom morris but without a doubt a decent tightend scores on"BOTH" of those plays....... it wasn a badjob by our QB it was a pathrtic effort by our TEs......

Inimounts - TE should have caught the last TD drop... But I feel Morris could have run it in.

No I know the te but their are four downs, and the pick is on him. and every game I have seen so many wasted opportunities in the red zone gone. All year I haven't seen him complete
One pass in the red zone.
It was the te those downs tho.
Does anyone else get sick watching this d? They are about to score again, which could put it at them
Having 42 points this game
At least. How does d'onofrio still have a job

Great takeaway, but after some of the poorest tackling I have ever seen in canes uniforms.

i cant believe they did that. defense is giving the offense chances, we need points NOW.

Flashes of dominance...

Just do me a favor, look at Morris' red zone numbers and , the rest of the season, watch Morris in the red zone. It's not fisch, he can't be blamed.

Why are we not running?

We need defensive stops. Without the takeaways we would be losing.

Duly noted

are you kidding me ??? what the f--- team is this playing now They dont even wanna win morris throws into triple coverage to a tight end who cant catch a 5 yard pass??? we needed 5 yards not 30 God this is hard to watch !!!!

triple coverage, bad decision. this game should be about over. this defense is ready to give up a big play after they ran it down their throats. the offense id killing us

Aye we stink in the red zone to be sure.... and morris throws to hard their I give ya, but the play calling is what is hurting us to be sure, I cant believe james wouldnt get 2 yards in 4 trys !!!

We need a sustainable drive to allow our D to rest

the D gives the ball back to our offense. WE NEED TO RUN!!!

Another 3rd down. Get the five yards.

Is that middle tennessee state gt is tied with at half?

HIS IS SICKNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTHING AGAIN??????
