Okay another prime time game to prove yourself improved. Let's see what we can do with this diamond.

We are going to crush FSwho? We beat NC State and FSwho just lost to them. We are on our way back!!


Go 'canes!

Manny has no idea what is going on. I bet we dont even play fsu this year.

The Narin Shapiro and NCAA investigation is coming to an end. Let's hope it's not as bad as the Miami herald alludes to but I strongly recommend we place ourselves on "bowl ban " this year to try to mitigate the harsh punishments that are likely coming. We probably are not going to any good bowl game this year anyways. We need to try to lessen the reduction in scholarships per year that is likely coming which has more negative long-term repercussions to the program

is anybody going to the game this Saturday???? if U r not don't comment on the U. Most of these fans on this blog don't even go to the games. I will b their supporting my team through rain or shine... U guys r a joke sit home and come on this blog and complain, fake UM fanes...

WTF??? Homecoming against Fl. St. Are they kidding? Homecoming is supposed to be a fun weekend when former students can come down, see their old friends & watch the football win a game. Whoever makes up these schedules should be fired.

We should take another bowl ban, I agree. Sacrifice the troll?

Eric Winston needs to lay off the roids, he sounds like andre the giant.

Expect no more than 20k to show up Saturday for UNC. Which cane team will show up? Who will win the shootout?

A homecoming beat down coming up on Oct 20th. Will look and feel like a Nole home game. The war chant will be heard loud and clear. Half the crowd will be in garnet and gold.

This is your reality.

the reason why homecoming is held vs FSU is so that more alumni can show up. This should decrease the # of FSU fans making the trip down.

also homecoming game means that all current students and the alumni who will be there will be extra, extra rowdy.

not a bad idea if you ask me.

now and always,

Go CANES!

Has anyone noticed: When Eric Flowers (teammate of Duke Johnson at Norland) is in the game, and tackling for Duke, Duke does well. When Henderson is in the game, Duke struggles. Duke struggles to get past the line. I say play Flowers the rest of the year.

As a true Cane, an all day/everyday Cane, We've got to support our players. Go to the games fans. The players need our support. I'm down about ND game, and some of you hate the coaches, BUT, the players need us. It's kind of like having bad parents, but a good kid--blame the parent, but you can't blame the kid. Every Saturday, I can't wait to get my family and head from Ft. Myers to the game. I can't even sleep Friday night. LOL.

Let's go fans. Lay the wood Canes. 2 years of a solid D-Line and we'll make a run for #6. D-LIne, D-LIne, D-Line

CANE4LIFE

MANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAN YOU SEE ME DOWN HERE????!??!??!??!!

Why did you cosign on an article about Pee Wee Allen being put on the front page after a bad UM loss WHEN EVERYTHING IN THERE WAS REPORTED ON 10 MONTHS AGO?????

Does anybody realize that we play the NC Tarheels this wk? Who cares about FSU under the lights, we have a game on the 13 against a high powered rushing attack. So lets not ahead of our selves and take it one game at a time...

UM should take a look at recently fired Al Groh for DC.

Our magic number is 2. With 4 conference games left, we need to win at least 2. A Coastal Division Championship is just the medicine this team needs. Just Win Baby!

why blame the herald for anything....the season is over. All that is left for excitment is duke and fsu..were not going to a bowl game even if we qualify. Golden will/should give it up anyway to preserve recruiting....if sanctions hit after 2013, advise is to become a gator fan. Thats all that is left in florida beside retirees, lol. I still say another shoe is gonna drop....all I remeber is looking at golden with his shirt in 30' weather staring out onto the field...thinking.....no emotion, paralized....what is he thinking about? bailing?

Right, all that's left for excitement is duke and FSU.

Because Miami fans don't know we have Va Tech at home.

Get a life dipsh*t.

Nothing will change with golden and DC as coaches. IF Miami can win any games the rest of the year, it will be in spite of golden and the DC trying their best to cause the Canes to lose.

golden and the DC have NO CLUE about winning on defense.
NO CLUE. NC will run over Miami. FSU will destroy Miami.

Miami will be lucky to have a 6-6 season.

As far as sanctions go, the NCAA is a bunch of god damned azzholes if they penalize a whole team for an intervening tortfeasor and criminal who corrupted a few players.

VT sucks...dont you watch ncaa football?

CaneFan'72 - What did you think about the Canes attire for the game? Were there enough long sleeves?

sunny dee,
Ask the players. Apparently, they looked cold and confused and could not throw or catch a ball nor kick a straight field goal.

All night and all game long, the Canes and the coaches looked they just wanted to get on the plane and head back to Miami. They were just going through the motions to pick up a check for playing against a good team as a doormat.

The coaches had NO CLUE how to run a defense. Look at all the yardage the COACHES have given up. You could take a spaceship to the moon with all the yardage against the Canes this season.

"Hello, Houston. We have a problem."

ANOTHER NATIONALY TELEVISED THUMPING!!!! FSU must be licking its CHOPS!!! Prediction 600yards, 50+ points, for FSU and SAME OLD excuses for us... aaa I forgot and we are young hahahah jajajaj with to 20 recruiting classes and being LAST in D of 120 teams of which 110 recruit worst than us.......

By the time we play FSU we should have a NEW DC!!! Bring in AL GROH

https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSufxG0YihFOseOgKCRiCrhVYkhFnwF1hWKde9ayAyeFN8IxyJp

we will need lots of this!!

Jimmy hello U moron U are a Gator fan, piece of Sh@t! Our season is far from being over. We learn from our mistakes from the ND game and keep playing hard we will win the Coastal division but it takes us winning one game at a time. The FSU thing is great but we need to focus on UNC first as Eudo said. We win our division and this is considered a successful season for this stage of the process.

In any sport, if you are losing using a certain formation or shot or play, you CHANGE it.

golden should change DCs because D'o has shown he is too stupid to change and does not know defense. If golden wants to keep d'o, he should give him a different job, like trainer or water boy, and get a real DC.

70Douche, he made Temple into a top 15 defense so until these players have a year or two experience under their belt with him, then that will be the time to judge whether or not he needs to go.

Oh and ESPN said the same thing about DC Randy Shannon when Louisville and Stephon LeFLores was carving us up on defense.

Dear Al Golden,

Al Groh has been fird as DC from Georgia Tech. Remember he is the guy that gave you the experience u need top run a 3-4. Well he is available for hire and also is available for wisdom for this crappy ass defense you and this Bullsh_ter is running on Defense.

At least hire him as a assitant right now bc we need help ASAP. We still have a chance to win the Coastal but the defense has to show up.

Offensivley which team is going to show up agaist North Car.

Hello no we don't need Al Groh and we sure as hell don't need his 3/4 defense.

Yeah, lets up a defensibe coordinator fired in the middle of the season. Good idea. Who is your number 2 candidate, jerry sandusky?


PLEASE READ!!!!

Also We can blame the Defensive line coach because our guys dont shoot gaps at all. The ends dont rush up field, what ever happen to the days when we just put our foot down and go. If its a run during the process we just tackle the damn running back on the way to the quarterback.

The linebackers never played 5 yards off the ball. What ever happen to the day when all the backers was on the line of scrimmage and the O-Line dont know if they were coming or not.

The Corners never played 10 yards off the ball. What ever happen to the days when our corners was 2 yards off the receivers, and ever one knew we was playing man to man.

The safety was always ball hawkers. What ever happen the days when our safetys intercept ever thang or big hit ever thing that came across the middle.

Thats what we are misssing people. Look at the recruits highlight films, thats what they do. Why change these young men, let them play to their strengths dont fukn take away from their strengths. That what former players said to Dennis Erkinson and he didnt touch it and they were flawless. Hire Al Gorh and fire the D'Fino and the Troll.

Dumbass, hiring AL Groh will not do any of that U are speaking of. He plays his guys off more than we do. I do agree that we need to put our corners up on recievers more but I have seen this stage before and until these kids are in the system for 2 more years it is a little premature to call for a DC head.

Hiring l Groh. Are you kidding. The last thing we need is a knee jerk reaction like that. But i do agree, this def coaching staff needs to go. If we could see some progress, it would be a little more tolerable, but nothing. This defense is the worst ever to wear a miami uniform. That says alot. And those who think we will even be close to FSU in the game, get real. NCarolina is lickin' their chops right now, the have the best chance to win the coastal. Miami will lose their next 2 games, and possibly 3. Next year, we will still be young.

The last thing this program needs is people on here defending these coaches. Losing is all that matters apparently. @ yrs. and no progress, 4-500 yds a game and you defend them. c'mon dude, do you really like watching these kids humiliated like that. You are no true fan if your ok with that. GET LOST save the program fire the defensive coaches

Mike Carolina can't win the coastal even if they win every game this year. If the team returned all the players from last year I would be in full agreement with you but the vast majority of the players playing are freshmen and sophomores so keep that in mind. I know it is demoralizing to see this but until this staff is into year 2-3 with these players it will be hard to give them a true evaluation. I am banking on with the experience gained this year along with the staff's success at Temple they will get it turned around. I know this if we get out defense back where it used to be and this offense stays as is it is going to be fun to be a Cane once the growing pains are over.

Look dipshit for 1 I know more about this program than the vast majority of people on this blog, #2 I have followed them and been a fan of theirs far longer as well. I have seen this process play out before. Plus I have a much higher football I Q than U for 1 and your assorted screen names. It took Coker 5 years to destroy the dynasty that was built and SHannon another 4 years of not developing players to aid the screw up. SO with that being said U jackwagon, I am going to trust and defend this proven coaching staff who turned a destitute Temple program from a doormat into a winner until this staff has 4 years to prove me wrong. SO if U don't like it U little C U N T then U get lost.

If they have a better record than us, they deserve it. I never like backing into something like that, like the fish always needing someone to lose so they make the playoffs in the past. This game is tough even if sat. night hadn't happened, they score at will. I disagree with you, it should not take 2-3 years before things get better. I really like Golden, but to keep defending this defense just doesnt add up. And this isn't temple, temple got alot better, alot, but they still didn't beat anyone of quality. We arent even getting beter at this point. That's hard to take

Golden and company are weak. he is all hype. the guy still hasnt put together a winning record so how good can the guy be? Miami goes 6-6 at best with no bowl. Sanctions will kill recruiting for 2013. At best MAYBE 2014-15 we see something. It is over for this year. There is no way this can end good. Defense is not going to miraculously go from 595 avg to under 400, it dosent work that way in the real world. The stats are running out of control. Florida loses every coach last year. Loses Meyer 65-15 and 5-1 bowl....then hires from the NFL for DC - Dan Quin (dolphins-jets-seahwks-49ers)...now they are 5-0 all against ranked teams with an average attendance of 90,439..its unbelieveable......we are the SUCK of Florida...what top kid is gonna want to come here now vs fsu/fla...you would have to be out of your mind.

Hire Rob Ryan...for new Miami HC. let him bring in his own DC which he can also help out on

@JIM
U are right buddy, Miami is doing nothing else this year until Golden and Company do something with this defense. It is embarrsing to see this team that I love so much.

Fire everyone on the defense NOW!!!!!!

Jimmy, this class is only going to consist of about 15 players any way because thats all the scholarships we have because we signed so many players last year. One good thing is all of the recruits are highley regarded. And dude you are like a babbling drunk old lady who pisses and moans about the same thing all day. Get a life or take some money buy some ass. You are pathetic.

Mike, hey man that is your opinion and U are entitled to it. But let me ask you this. Do you remember the years 1995- 1999 when butch was the coach? those years were much like this one. ITs going to be a rollar coaster ride this year with ups and downs and in a year or two things will level out just like it did with Butch. I remember how frustrated I was with him and once he beat FSU in 2000 and the team started dominating everybody was it only then that I could see how this kinda process works and how much time it takes. Just be patient and forget 01 or the years under Jimmy and Dennis because it is going to take time to get there. Alot more than 1 year and 6 games with this kind of youth.

Championships, youre one of the few who make sense here.

Championships: lets go thru the drill again for the 1000 time:

butch...51-20 / 33-9 conference / 4 bowl wins
dennis..63-9 / 19-1 conference / 3 bolw wins
jimmy...52-9 / 3 bowl wins
larry...60-15 / 34-11 / 4 bolw wins

al golden...37-42 / 26-17 conference / no bowl wins
charlie tate...34-27 / 1 bowl win

thats goldens mirror, lol


solution....hire rob ryan hc/dc and rob chudzinski oc...problem solved

@championship

Mane u and the rest of these retards need to stop comparing Butch Davis with Al Golden. College football is totally different from when he coached. I agree with u tho about it takes time, but with progress. We have not progress yet this year and probaly wont because we are on a serious mud slide. Its not one College Footballl Team giving up the kind of yards we are giving up and not only that but every quarterback look like an All-American.

Coaches always play the strengths of their players regardless if they are freshmans or seniors. Jedd Fisch is doing it why not can D'Fino. So I guess u want an example last year Jedd wouldnt let Jacory throw 30 times a game but allows Stephen. With that said Al Gorh is a bad hire for UM I was saying that bc i heard he got fired but Gregg Williams (Saints old coordinator)would be a great UM hire.

I just hope he make adjustments for this game but i doubt it. I havent seen 1 new thing he added to his defense from week 1. Next two games going to be ugly and maybe the Duke and VTech game. I hate to say it but it can happen if the offfense dont out score the other team. And who say u cant fire a coach mid season, it happens everywhere. And Al Golden is a defensive coorinator so he should have no problem taking over the defense.

Leggo Canes

why isnt golden more involved with the defense.....thats his baby. wtf is he doing on the sidelines anyway?.....let him completely take over DC job until replacement is found. or maybe he is just lazy.

PLEASE READ!!!!

Also We can blame the Defensive line coach because our guys dont shoot gaps at all. The ends dont rush up field, what ever happen to the days when we just put our foot down and go. If its a run during the process we just tackle the damn running back on the way to the quarterback.

Leggo Canes

Hire Gregg Williams, Gregg Williams, Gregg Willaims, Gregg Williams, Gregg Willaims, Gregg Willaims

First of all U two dipshits don't know jack squat about football or sports for that matter and know what it takes to win. U are both like two old bags who think they know so much but in reallity all they know is whether or not they prefer tampons or pads. U both are pathetic. The times are different only by years. Football is the same as it has always been in that it takes a strong leader which we have in Golden and a staff which we have, talent brought in that are part of the solution not the problem and time for that talent to be coached up and developed which it is now where it hadn't been under Coker and Shannon. That takes at least 3 to 4 years. Learn and study the game and not the scores on your11 oclock news like U two dunces do and then you can talk intellectually about the game with grown ups like myself and Junk.
Oh and Jimmy you are more than welcomed to follow Coker, at UTSA. He is right up your alley when it comes to coaches. Oh and you fail to realize that all of those coaches U listed followed a great to good HC and Golden followed two scrubs like yourselves. Jimmy followed Howard who had a loaded team that had just won a National Title and lost 5 games in 84 and they all wanted him gone. Dennis followed the King of Miami which is Jimmy for all U nimrods like yourself and won two National titles but severely screwed up recruiting. Butch followed Dennis and dismanteled everything and built from the ground up. But he wasn't considered a great coach in Miami until he finally beat FSU. Up until then he was labeled as a big game failure. So any rational person can see the mess Golden is headed into is worse than any of those guys had it and is reminiscent of the mess Howard entered into when he became the HC. All he did was lead us to our first National Title and Golden will lead us to our 6th title. And when he does U two dipshits haven't got a place as a true Cane. Later losers.

Oh and Jim the whole Rob Ryan and Chudzinski idea just shows how stupid and in la la land U really are. Those two guys are in line for HC gigs in the NFL. They are really gonna come back to college when they can make millions in the NFL. You slapnuts kill me with your stupidity. What a bunch of morons.
