Gameday blog: FAU at Miami

The 2013 season is set to begin at 8 p.m. tonight against the visiting FAU Owls.

As per tradition, we will be hosting a live blog on CoverItLive here at Eye On The U. Tonight's game is being televised on ESPNU and broadcast on WQAM (560 AM), Radio Caracol (Spanish, 1260 AM), WVUM (90.5 FM) and XM 191 on Satellite Radio. 

The Hurricanes are favored to beat the Owls by 32 points according to the spread makers in Las Vegas. FAU is coming off a 3-9 season and is under second-year coach Carl Pelini. The Owls are expected to play a couple guys under center, but it's likely sophomore Jaquez Johnson (6-1, 225) who will start. He'll get some help from freshmen Greg Hankerson (6-0, 172) and DJ Juste (6-2, 180).

OwlAccess.com reported Thursday that five players will sit out today's game with suspensions: starting slot receiver Daniel McKinney, tight end Darion Howard, running back Damian Fortner, defensive tackle Lance Burlingame and long-snapper Stephen Curtis. The last four are not starters.

Here is the live blog. Remember to login and keep it clean please. I'm picking Miami to win handily by the way.

Miami 45

F.A.U.

The Owls have an atrocious offense! So the Canes defensive coordinator is A-OK for a game.

I'm looking forward to the punting skills of THE CINCINNATI KID. Because he'll absolutely turn field position in Miami's favorite, time after time this season. hUh

Miami 45

F.A.U. 10

A slight typo miscue. Eh. What say.

I'll be disappointed if the Owls garner more than 302 yards of total offense tonight. Very disappointed!!

Several moons ago, I mentioned the Canes would do the bloody BLAND and VANILLA number on defense against the Hooter's. hUh

However, a couple of INSIGHTFUL, LOYAL Hurricane loyalist said the Hurricanes couldn't afford to go witht the VANILLA schemes and ploys and what not. Eh. What say.

3-9 team with wins over wagner, troy and western ky and the green peas are afraid, lol......

if UM has close game I would just never come back to this blog.....it wont be worth the abuse I will bring......

lol, man, all i'm saying is, here's another thing, we should never be down in this game at no point. I wouldn't be surprised if FAU comes out and bombed us, fake option read, fake the pitch, drop back and bomb us. It's not like this defense is that hard to prepare for, lol. I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen tonight, one things for sure, FAU, they gone test to see if we actually have a pass rush, if not, lol.

U best be worried about Toledo

Yeah i remember that cause it still makes me laugh hearing that being applied to clown 117th as if he actually has some more tricks up his sleeve that he's been hiding. One things for sure, if this scheme starts working, we'll know for sure that the argument on whether or not whether winning or losing is on the players or on the coaches will have been answered, cause we all know, it'll definitely be the players when it comes to the defensive side of the ball.

Vanilla, man, at 117th, lol, at that point, look, nobody is even trying to sneak and watch our practices to see what kind of defense we're running, in fact they don't even want or need game tape prior to the game to prepare for our defense.

However, they did seem to have taken my advice and al's buddy is up top now, so he'll be looking lonely on the sidelines now looking for oach OH-NO. He might have a chance up, he just might, it's his only hope now that's for sure.

Anybody need some ICE up in here?

IF your a real fan, quit complaining and support this team. We're going into a brand new season just the way we are right now. Nothing, not even your ragging, will change that.

You're either in or out. If you're out, stay out.
Ragging, whining, gutless quitters sicken me.

Now that I got that out of the way, I see a "pedestrian" win tonight. 20-6 at the half, 40-13 final while not showing a whole helluva lot.

GO CANES!
(9.7.13 Be There)

Thanks, zook. I think Harriette is the lead Sybil personality and Lady Calvina just surfaces to fixate on men and their weights. Oh, and pretend to discuss football in order to hang with the guys---you know, get to say things like

penetration
press coverage
man coverage
etc

Looks like another empty stadium. Guess more people have moved at of SFLA that wewre Miami fans. What a pitiful town

CANES FANS ONLY PLEASE. That means calvin, gallo and D, which ever personality you are reading this, it's past your bedtime.

"one things for sure, FAU, they gone test to see if we actually have a pass rush, if not, lol"

"I hope" (like coach no' d) a freshman isn't our best pass rusher tonight. 3g I need to see some of that utough schtick put to work.

Dammit dzp

This cute sh*t, run the damm ball.

True Cane, clean it up dude. No one needs that here.

So what we're witnessing now is, shayon green and 3g are being used as run stoppers and than bring in the lighter players to actually get a speed rush going, imagine that. I can see it now, we're going to get kilt with screen passes or draw plays against the better teams, lol.

We are all adults here, he asterisk it, if intelligent there's no point in censoring.

Our db's still know how to line up in bump and run then turn and sprint 30 yards on the snap.

It's mandatory we get a power back.

Duke is forrizzle B!

What's happening now is, our offense is facing a defensive scheme that's better than what they face in practice so right now, we have a stalled offense although stacey coley is going to be legit, but we got an experiment as a widereceivers coach right now, but still, who's going to play the defensive scheme we're playing all year, lol.

One thing that's clear and clear early, james coley is going to be a good oc here for us. You can tell he calls plays with a future purpose. Come next week though, going to be real intersting, as of right now, coach goldie was telling the Truth when he said, " i think the biggest thing with the defense was not to change anything" so far he's 100% right, we can't go into next week against brent pease playing this scheme, those passes FAU are missing on, the better teams will hit those wide open guys.

It's also funny seeing dzp pick-up those 2 personal foul penalties, that's what happens when you bulk up to 240, the brakes don't work for that type of force like that, he'll figure it out.

#98 Al-Quadin Muhammad is gonna be something incredible!

Armbrister & Cornelius look much better (passing the eye ball test). We need Deon Bush back next weekend. Rodgers is just not that dude.

Kacy's mom is the sweetest thing and very supportive mom though, she told me that she has never missed one of his games his entire life.

I was just getting ready to say, we're going to miss eddie johnson and gionni paul on defense. dzp running with this crew makes our linebacking crew a lil more watered down. Come next week is when we'll really miss those 2, has there been an alex figs sighting yet.

Enjoy Alquadin Muhammad this year, after ask him to put on 20 more lbs, he'll probably be null and void like tyriq. But come next week, if we're going to be this obvious with our substitutions on defense, expect alot of delayed screen and draws on 3rd downs. Also, this type of defensive scheme is not going to move the crowd, it's to boring, we're use to guys running down hill, coach goldie talking about "they're brand" when it's his and his boys scheme that's altered the Miami style to unrecognizable on defense.

Also, anybody else tired of coach goldie acting as if he has to give a pre-game speech to every unit but the defense before they go out there on the field. Nice delay of game on the first play of the year coach goldie.

Stfu u idiot

And again w the weight...LOL u really don't have a clue .So he gained weight that why he committed the late hit..LOL

First game jitters gone...lets see if we camn light it up....canes, you studder when you type too.

Dumbest Lady Calvina comment of all time and that is a really high bar. Top this:

Perryman's 2 dumb penalties are due to his weight gain because he couldn't stop.

Man are you dumb and I'd hate to be downside from you when anyone talks about a guy's weight. Man do you get off on it.

As a general rule, anyone in the Sybil pea brain group that uses the non-word kilt as in "we're going to get kilt" is a sub-moron. That's you Lady calvina.

real fans KNOW football and how important the linemen are for blocking or on defense for stopping a run or rushing the passer. A "fan" that does not know anything more about football than d'o says support the Canes regardless how much the DC stinks.

First, FAU suspended four of its top players so this game was a cakewalk from the beginning.

Second, Miami stopped FAU with four down defensive linemen in FAUs first possession, but let FAU walk the length of the field and score when d'o called ONLY three down def. linemen and his famous zone NO pass defense.

Third, I will guarantee you that a good opponent will march up and down the field with d'o and golden's incredibly stupid three down linemen NO defense and their zone NO pass coverage defense.

sorry Cane fans, but that is the nature of d'os and golden's lack of knowledge about defense. Check the stats. goldie is a half fanny coach with a 50% win 50% loss record and the worst defensive stats in the country. N. Dakota State is playing KSU a better game than goldien did last year.

This is what I want to see, defend the short field.

Cane'72,

Your guarantee as worthless as you are.

Miami can only play who shows up. If FAU guys screwed up, that's between them and their coach. Except for a couple Perryman miscues and Coley jitters, the game would be called on the nercy rule.

I know you're bumbed, but try to get over it.

When are the other Sybils going to come out?

Hold up, old Calvin might have a point, did yall just see Denzel try to cut back to get the RB on that swing pass out the backfield and fall??? he definitely made that play the last 2 years.

NCAA commercial? LMAO! Do U believe they had the balls to put their commercial on our game?

Thank God Morris just got a break, that was an INT.

Now you know why Jimbo called the played at FSU. This offense looks pitiful, short of Duke

This is kind of hard to watch. 20-6 late in the third, miscues that would lose other games. I've been cautiously optimistic, but besides what could be a defensive improvement I'm still worried.

Ice ice baby

3-9 team with wins over wagner, troy and western ky and the green peas are afraid, lol......

if UM has close game I would just never come back to this blog.....it wont be worth the abuse I will bring......

-------------------------------------------------------

You're giving yourself way too much credit.
Stick around...your blogs are quite amusing.

Coley is not worst than Jimbo. Please god, this can't be the case. I think Coley will be fine.

Time to take Duke out the game--please.

Waters is nice!

I was just about to say, why is duke still in the game, it's time for the back-ups no matter what but since we're in a close one and herb waters can do this all game just like he did in highschool. I'm not sure what tape goldie watched of herb and than got surprised by herb being able to do this but i could've told him about herb.

All those people who tried to put smo17 on a pedestal, he's a solid qb, but again, i'll say it, there is a reason he couldn't beat out j70. If he's making these mistakes against FAU and the lil bit of pressure they're getting on us tonight, come next week, lol, no way we can play like this on both sides of the ball. Also, not starting seantrel henderson for the sake of starting malcome bunche is a liability, we need feliciano back inside, bunche doesn't have the lower body to be a dominant o-lineman.

Idiot HR w Calvin the dope

And yo momma slurping Us both. Hey, that rhymed!

Idiot harrietcane!

We need to get waters more touches. This kid is dynamic! Mark my words.

Alot of people don't realize what jedd fisch did to make smo17 play like he did. He just eliminated certain plays, for instance, he didn't call to many crossing routes for smo because he's not good throwing those type of pass routes. In come james coley and he's putting more emphasis on smo17 as a senior to make those throws but i think he's understanding now alot more about smo17's eaknesss.

We better win next week...no excuses

Man, i was getting ready to say, i didn't know dajleon farr had more eligibilty, who let him in the game, turns out it's gilbert!

This gus edwards is going to be real nice, i said it way back when, he runs like SEAN TAYLOR!
