Please fire that piece of sh%t d cord. This guy sucks!

Coach D as no defense, this is beyond pathetic, if he wasn't such a good friend I doubt he comes back, but he is! So son't expect any changes next year!

Calling canes DEFENSE.... We need a DEFENSE check on isle 2..... LOL

NOW WHAT do you have to say about our D

who said the sp teams looks good. just about every time we kick, it looks they will run forever.it's been like that for 5-6 weeks. adjustments at halftime, golden will ask for 1,ONE 3and out, and we will outscore them if we score every time we get the ball. if they interview goldie, he will ssy we need 1-one more turnover. same every game why change now. The game plan is to wear out their o-line. then we have them

darind, chick is a soph. 2 year starter, and the biggest bust on the defense, jerry, don't you have a telethon to do. '72, you are dumb. each week same trash. gallo is a gayturd,

you people don't understand. It's cold, we are young, missing players, not executing, missed oppotunities, and so on.

Thanks for the correction Al...lmao

@CaneFan'72 You sound very irrational have you watched any of the Miami games this year? Did also see that Miami 2nd and 3rd leading tacklers are out for the game? Did you see Virginia stomp NC State? And Virginia has beaten Miami 4 years in a row? You act like Miami is playing a FCS team, you act like we have top tier talent on defense and we should be dominating. Wake up Al Golden threw together his first recruiting class and had all last season to put together last season, but looming NCAA sanctions hindered that a tad bit, but was still able to get a top 10 class. And a lot of those guys are playing in this game.. Hopefully the sanctions coming down aren't to bad, because this team will be good two years from now. They really need to pick up D tackles. I think you need to be more realistic and no so fanatical. I am huge Hurricane fan and I like what these coaches are building. Also @darind Chickollo is a sophomore so this his is 2nd year starting, and he didn't even start last season only up until the end of the season.

I agree that the defensive scheme has been terrible, however; we have very little talent. Our defensive line is really bad, especially Chickollo who only seems to be effective against the option (GT). Our linebackers and secondary have no idea how to defend the pass. If the Hurricanes had a mediocre defense, we would be a 10-2ish program.

Miami s 10th game and the CANE DEFENSE looks like this????????/D ONOFRIO IS SO BAD.The guy s so insecure he s afraid to blitz.He has ZILCH/NADA/NO/ZERO/CONFIDENCE IN HIS SECONDARY AND HE INSPIRES NONE.THEY DON T WANT TO PLAY FOR HIM CAUSE THEY KNOW HE S A LOSER.THEY WONDER AND HATE IT THAT GOLDEN HAS KEPT THIS LOUSY/HORRIBLE/TERRIBLE DC.28 POINTS GIVEN UP IN THE FIRST HALF AGAINST A 3-6 TEAM.THAT TELLS ANYBODY ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE COACHING ABILITY (IN) OF D ONOFRIO.

I say---- Dominate the second half canes!!!!! lets go canes we got this : ) ( any other prayers along with mine are welcome !!!! ) .... Go canes!

It's a helpless feeling when you know the defense has no chance of slowing the other team down. For a football fan, nothing is worse.

DJ, I can agree that we have a low talent pool, but unless we get a D coordinator on staff, we will never get those 5 star players anyway. Kids don't like to play with LOSERS! kids now days want to win immediately. Teh school gave a Golden a contract extension along with nice salary increase and for what?? That was total mistake, you dont pay someone that kind of money for losing. This program has not shown any improvement post Randy Shannon!! I take that back we are starting the right qb, and yes Sir Duke Johnson is the truth!!

For those "Cane fans" , the name is Chickillo , not Chickollo . LOL

Come on all... at least we get to see our hurricanes play, in 2 months we will have no football to watch, and these young guys got heart, that alone makes for a better future!!!

I wonder why we always seem to struggle against Virginia, of all teams. I know Shannon was finally able to beat them down one in 2009, but the last 2-3 seasons we have struggled and lost and it is usually a season changer. I wonder why.

It is humanly impossible for a team to play more than a half of competitive football without committing a penalty, so my question is: why does Virginia have ZERO penalties so far?

that is the best we could do after halftime?? look totaly lost out there and have 0 timing : ( and BS trick plays called... WOW that was a disappointing start to this half, thing wont look good if we dont get a D stop this next drive, not sure our defense has many stops in them today.....

poor offensive series after a halftime break. Ok let's see what defensive adjustments were made back in the locker room. Again, all I want for christmas is one of the stoops brothers as our head coach..There is one across the state at FSU serving as a D coordinator, just saying..

We might need a new D coordidnator, but we also need some TALENT on the field. Why does everyone seem to blame the coach only. Is our D coordinator out there playing D line and getting pushed around like a school girl or like Anthony "Chickollo" Chickillo?

UM is not going to get anywhere with a defensive scheme like this. It's the DC. With all the pending sanctions, etc., the team still plays hard, but coaching does matter.

Stupid Game blog is blocking me now. maybe cause I don't want to give the company the right to access my information when I'm not even there?
What ever happened to privacy?
Canes have to win this game, but Morris has to be accurate in the 3rd quarter, for a change.

Refs have lost control of this game.

that "WAS" the best drive we had all season. WE took time off the clock, the D gets rested, running the ball, making 3rd downs and a 4th. Morris blows it.

Great job by the def so far in the 2nd half. We needed that score. 3 and out after the turnover, who are these guys? It does seem the defensive adjustments are getting better these last few games. Not so many points allowed in the 2nd half. Still a long way to go on def though. This would be a huge win if we can hang on. go canes

I PUT KITTY CAT POO POO ON MY FACE

DORSETT way to go baby. If that guy gets back on track, this offense becomes WAAAAY better. Stretches the field. He is the only one who seems to get open deep DEFENSE DEFENSE

UL LAF 17 FL 13
Syr 45 Lville 19

D is PUPU

boo

Rocco for Heisman 17 straight completions

Pepe La Pew should be D"NO's nickname

18 completion and TD!!!!

Miami's young defense has no clue how to play effective zone pass defense. They literally think they are defending turf instead of adjusting and picking up recievers that enter their zone.

uva 413yards total O ... right on pace to the 500 mark!!

WHY in the name of sweet Lord Jesus would you throw the ball on first down right there with a 3 point lead and 5 minutes left in the game?

well here we go ...with the game on the line our D....??? maybe prevent the Win D!!!

Unfortunately, we WANT to loose this game. Why would you not run the ball and run clock? UNBELIEVABLE!!!

DUKE I have not seen a miami rb that can stop and start so quick in my memory. big 3rd down

Shalala called and we have too many points. Share the wealth.

safty

safety

I doubt we get the safety. But it was great to our def in THEIR backfield. Huge 3rd down if we don't get the safety.

WOW Once in a while a call actually goes our way. Turds down by 7 in 4th qtr

DNO will loose this GAME

DNO

nightmare

D out of position throughout the drive

Only hope is for them to stop themselves
