Gameday blog: Canes vs. Gators

It's the big day. 

We'll be hosting our live chat as usual. Join us in CoverItLive. 

Kickoff is at noon. Gators are a three-point favorite. Game can be seen on ESPN and heard on WQAM (560 AM locally). Make sure to follow me on Twitter @Manny_Navarro. I posted plenty of pregame Vines and photos.

The week off is much needed. Because the offense needs some bloody FINE TUNING.

Man, Morris wasn't connecting with his wide-outs and what not.

And Miami needs to get Clements more touches, because Clements is the quasi-down-hill-bruising RB the Canes desperately need.


Not sure if Coley is that bad or the Gators defense is that good, either way enjoy the trip back up 75.

**************

I think the answer to your notion is somewhere in the murky middle. Because that makes TWO games in a row with the passing game going awry. hUh

Yeah, yeah Stevie had the 52 yard connection with Dorsett.

Mersin bells heisman chances ruined and now driskell s. lol at the post game excuses on espn.

I have been saying it, what happened on D last year prepared us for a game like today.
All the young guys who were undersized and inexperienced knew exactly what their jobs were today and what it takes.
Golden let them fail, stripped them from their high school crowns and built them up again.
U Tough won this game, lot of people made fun of it.

Today they graduated.
Sent the trailer people back up the turnpike.

Are we back now?

Mersin is kerwin. Autocorrect.

It's Great To Be A MIAMI HURRICANE!
It's Great To Be A MIAMI HURRICANE!
It's Great To Be A MIAMI HURRICANE!
It's Great To Be A MIAMI HURRICANE!
To be repeated over and over!!!!!!!

M-I-A-M-I MIAMI MIAMI MIAMI

I am done!

Oh no...wait...I have something I would like to serve up...

Crow for Gallo & Calvin...and whoever you want to put in the mix...

We know neither of you like Golden and Oh No Duno...and that is Ok you are entitled to your opinion...but STFU and eat your Crow!!!!

Golden is the guy that is needed to run this program here right now...over time the cream will rise to the top...Golden will end up being one of the best UM Coaches...he is young his kids are young and where else would he go...

We are not there yet...a lot to fix and that is good...but the thing I was unsure about was this game would be handled...I was afraid the game was too big for this team...but it was not...that is REALLY GOOD!

We have some issues with the Offense, but I like the way the D is playing hard...all the other stuff will take care of its self with the effort and intensity they played with.

Florida is not a bad team...you watch they will have a pretty darn good running game the rest of the year...

If we get our Offense fixed and start to eat some clock...watch out...this could be special...

I will say this right now...we are not consistent with our play calling to be as up tempo as we are playing...we need to get into the huddle and eat some clock...

Go Canes!

Bleeding Orange, Green & White!

+ 4 in the turnover category saves Miami's offense.

And yes, I was very, very, very " HARD " on Marky Mark, but it's all water under the bridge now!!

Again, Miami has an excellent opportunity to go UNDEFEATED entering their game with F.S.U.

It was a a tough win and offense needs improvement but we beat the gators!!!!!! Enjoy it!!!! pS....all you that hate the canes can suck on some ICE.

Very concerned with Miami's offense. Morris and / or wr's look terrible

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Gonna be celebrating for two weeks straight!

%%%%%%%%%%%%

Miami good ol' boy, I NEVER had issues with Goldie!

Well, I didn't like the notion, that he didn't EXCOMMUNICATE his defensive coordinator at the end of last season.

FWIW... my issues have ALWAYS been with D'Onofrio, but now I give him a much needed break. Eh. What say.

The MIGHTY Gators had the pigskin 38:30 minutes! And if any team has the possession of the football that amount, you'd figure that squad would win the game. hUh

Too bad Miami's defense met the challenge today with the RED ZONE takeaways and what not.

Phukkk you Soldy.


Gallo, Inhabe the poison. Ready to kill yourself?

Yep. They will be quiet, change their I'd, and pretend they never said the gators would win. Of course, with six active IDs they can lose a few.

Soldy Pig the coward will be AWOL for 2 weeks.

Coward. Pig. Suck it loser.


Gallo, hope you die tonight.

Is Ermon Lane going to flip to the U now?

BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Canes to Dah house. Most important stat? Scoreboard.

Soldy loves Gallo's KAK.

Both Goldie and D'Onofrio finally answered my challenge.

Because I wondered if they were ready for the BIGGEST GAME of their young college football coaching careers!!

Well, they and the staff and the players were up for the bloody task at hand. hUh

Get the Fu** out of here D! You and Calvin are not wanted nor welcome!! You POS!

Go 'canes!

Well, they and the staff and the players were up for the bloody task at hand. hUh

Go blow Gallo you piece of crap!

Go 'canes!!

Golden let them fail, stripped them from their high school crowns and built them up again.

Wow, this is what its all about. UTough no doubt has paid huge dividends that showed today, but this statement is wild my friend--just wild.

When we lose the players are the reason...and when we win...Golden is the sole reason.

When accountability both ways is not present--things are gonna unfortunately end bad. Glorifying him doesn't help him be a great coach. Its ok to hold him accountable during good and bad times. This is a huge win for him and I'm happy for him. I'm more happy for "them" tho, "they" played "their" hearts out--as Golden should continue to say after this game.

Watch the way U post after such a great win, because yall words are about to set up total anger and sole responsibility on golden if we lose to the teams on our schedule that we aren't supposed to.

The excuses are truly gone, now by yall own words!

On a fan to fan level--I can live with Us all going forward without the excuses. Thats what today did--Its Great to be a Miami Hurricane!!!!


Get the Fu** out of here D! You and Calvin are not wanted nor welcome!! You POS!

Go 'canes!

#############

W-H-Y you gotta' be such a CANESPACE hater!!!

Oh, that's right. It's bloody NATURAL for you to be a hater!!!!

Now, go scampering back to that Good Ol' Boy canespace CESSPOOL!!!!

Forevermore the Canes own the Gators...the last game played and the Canes...WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

The cowardly Gators have quit the series twice, because they fear the Canes.

Had Miami's offense been in sync today the Canes would have won by 4 touchdowns.

The overall series ends with Miami...as usual...holding a 29-26 series edge.

The Canes are back to playing championship football!!!!

Go Canes!!!!!!!!!

Ain't got nothin to do with canspace "D"Bag! Your a POS and now you're trying to walk back all your dumb shyt! Go "F" yourself!

Go 'canes!

As I have said a hundred time...

AL GOLDEN IS THE BEST COACH IN ALL OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

Go Canes!

Tell 'em Ron!!

Go 'canes!!

LOL.Calvin..u fool..how's that second half prediction wrking out for ya!!! Now stfu for at least 2weeks plz. Golden and his staff had their team ready. Bag man blew multiple to's, lots of penalties and way better condition. Golden rules...and u can stfu about Randy "deer in the headlights"Shannon and Jackie "I'm so stupid to read a defense " Harris.

Stat of the day....
The mighty gator: 44 rushes for 126 yards
Driskel couldn't beat us.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Florida's defense has a lot to do with Miami's mellow offense this afternoon. dUh

Nevertheless, the Hurricanes have enough time to work out the miscommunications and breakdowns on offense.

Because Savannah St. and a putrid South Florida squad await the Canes. Then it's A.C.C. action. dUh

Get the fug out of here "D" Bag! You can go sulk over at Gator Clause!

Go 'canes!

Just the way it should be.

Go 'Canes!

Funny part is that miami got those turnovers, but these trolls give miami no credit for forcing the fumbles with hard hits and nits from pressure. Typical.

************

W-H-Y you such an absolute, NATURAL BORN hater.

Oh, that's right. Your MAMMY and PAPPY didn't give you NO love and what not.

Now get back to that Good Ol' Boy Canespace forum. hUh

Ain't nothing more special than a big W over FU!

Go 'Canes!

Oh, the CINCINNATI KID aided Miami in the field position phase of the game.

Gator hater!! Get the Fug outta here "D" Bag! Calvin and Gallo need a reach around right about now!

Go 'canes!

Mom jokes "D" Bag? That's all you got? Get the fug outta here!

Go 'canes!

Again, with a NEW and RE-focused D'Onofrio in upscale Coral Gables. The Canes will end up RANKED in the Top 10 at the conclusion of the regular season.

Because on paper F.S.U. seems to be the only team to give Miami some trouble.

However, the Hurricanes can't let that bed bug COMPLACENCY bite them in the collective arse. hUh

The SEC is great.

That was an illegal block for their punt block, but the acc refs were ignoring a lot of cheap shots by the gators and not calling it fair. Miami beat the gators and refs.

Posted by: Sarasota 'cane | September 07, 2013 at 04:43 PM

############

Canespace bUbba, YOU GOT SOME serious MENTAL issues!! Seriously you do, Good Ol' Boy. hUh

Why don't you give some input on the game and what not.

Oh that's right. YOUR a Canespace agent provocateur.

I'm just surprised Mountain Cane and the rest of your good ol' boys haven't joined you. Eh. What say.

lol 72... I've been a fan for much longer and I didn't say the Canes would lose this season all year. Don't try to jump on board now.

Morris has GOT to stop trying to throw every pass 1000
MPH...That being said, you gotta give credit where it's due, D'Onofrio and the "D" won the game for The Canes, no debating that fact.

They play defense like that the whole season, and they'll be in every game, and that's all you can ask for against the best in the nation.

!!!!!!!!!!!!

Miami will NEVER get a balanced called game from the officials. dUh

Because the Canes have had to defeat BOTH their opponent and officials for THIRTY SEASONS now.

Chit, the ethical, prestigious N.C.A.A. bloody IMPLEMENTED some game rules because of Miami.

wqam analysts have just mentioned the CINCINNATI KID and how his punts aided Miami in the field position game today.

Yeah, yeah O'Donnell is from the Sunshine state and what not.

Done with the B.S. we did what we needed to do to beat a top 15 team. Even the greatest college football team of all time (2001 National Champion Canes) had a 2 point win over VT. That's what championship caliber teams do, they find ways to win close, tough, physical games. Forget the what ifs, Lou Holtz can kiss my ass, we won so today we were the better team.

Great Job CANES!!!!!!!

It don't matter what Herbie, Lou, Mark, Mel, or u say. The players don't care. This game has little to do with UF will do. It's all about the []_[].

1. Throw on first down. Need to throw to run. Can ball-control from ahead.

2. Play aggressive swarming defense and tackle well.

3. Just be []_[] and don't worry about the other team.

bottom line, Miami needs to and will represent. Duke, Fig, K.C. Rodgers... Golden is holding them in the blocks until they run through that smoke.

[]_[] Miami gonna get in that tail.

Posted by: mahoney-pearson | September 07, 2013 at 08:14 AM


I'm not gonna question anyone's fan-hood for doubting the canes, but you clearly haven't been paying attention and don't know football.

I been saying all week you don't know what D'Onofrio is gonna run. That D looked like throwback till that prevent non-sense.

The D won the game. All you who doubt Golden, remember he's responsible for this success and the direction of this team. He's done a hell of a job and this is the end result.

It feels good to be a Miami H[]_[]rricane!
