MIGHTY Seminoles currently are a ... - 21 point home favorite.

Why did ESPN's Game Day even consider having Herbie, Lee and the rest of the crew fly to the Sunshine state, state capital. dUh

FWIW... Goldie's squad still remains NO. 6 in the important ESPN Coaches Poll.

Also, the Harris poll hasn't announced their rankings yet.

By the way, I touted that South Carolina would fly away with a victory over Missouri. hUh Get outta' here with that crap, Dork!

totally irrelevant....ACC goes to fsu until winston graduates....so why do we need golden/dnofrio?

how are you gonna get to national championship when you cant win the WEAK ACC division?

how is that possible....lets start interviewing HC/DC now

Well, three touchdowns for a line is a win/win for the coaching staff, win and even the hardest corps of detractors have to STFU, (that includes the always entertaining to read Calvin who will man up and say Steven Morris might know a thing or two about moving the chains against top competition) lose, even by the same margin as last year's game, and they weren't supposed to hang in there for three quarters again anyway.

I personally think that UM's OC will give them an advantage in the defensive scheming as he knows what guys don't like to do what for FSU on the offensive side of the ball and knows Jimbo's play calling tendencies. Whatever the outcome ends up being, the buildup to this one is going to be as good as it ever was under Bowden/choose your UM championship winning coach from the decade of dominance you fancy here.

This senior class hasn't accomplished anything on the field, but they have a real chance to do something special if they can beat FSU.

YES, IF CANES EMBARRASS THEMSELVES LOSING BY 30 POINTS OR SO.

THERE IS NO REASON IN THE WORLD WHY THE CANES COULDN'T WIN THE BCS BUT FOR THE FACT THAT D'O IS THE DC AND DOES NOT KNOW ANYTHING BUT HIS LAY BACK AND DON'T STOP THE RUN AND PREVENT THE WIN ZONE NO PASS COVERAGE.

ONE, UF PUSHED MIAMI UP AND DOWN THE FIELD ALL AFTERNOON AND THEIR 5 TURNOVERS GAVE THE GAME TO MIAMI. GIVING UP A TURNOVER IS LIKE GIVING THE OTHER TEAM 60 YARDS OF OFFENSE. GATORS GAVE MIAMI 300 EXTRA YARDS OF OFFENSE.

You don't habe to start your comment with "totally irrelevant", we already know because it comes from you.

IF FSU IS FAVORED TO WIN BY 21 POINTS, ADD ANOTHER 7 POINTS ONTO THAT BECAUSE OF HOME FIELD AND HOME CROWD ADVANTAGE.

FSU 42
Miami 10

Funny how all the naysayers are out in full force. None of them expected us to be 7-0 at this point. -21 point home chalk means nothing (it didn't mean anything when we played WF). Here are some stats to ponder:

1. Mighty Clemson Tigers allowed 323 yards rushing to Syracuse although they won 49-14.
2. Syracuse only had 75 on the ground when shutout by GT. The U rushed for 227 against GT.
3. WF offense got a complete make over in the past few weeks.
4. Clemson struggled against a depleted MD.

All these go to show any one can be beat on any given Saturday. Our offense is not clicking at all so far (the only exception is the USF game) and we will need to play a perfect game with a perfect game plan like WF did to us next week. The D needs play like they did against UF.

lmao.....

this is Wake Forest....Price 25/45 302 yrds 2 TD vs Morris 17/28 191 1 TD..
Campanaro 10/88 1 TD vs Waters 4/47 1 TD
Harris 6/95 vs Walford 4/33

what do you think the numbers will look like:

winston
benjamin
freeman
greene
Oleary


This is so not a top 10 team

Dom,

If we beat FSU, it would be an upset. If you look at the way these teams play you can't really believe we're going to win. That's the fan in you talking.

Now for the fan in me. 21-point dog in a rivalry game, everyone believes we're going to get spanked. I think our guys are going to come out pumped up and make this a game. We have no reason to be scared of FSU.

Offense has rushed for 200+ yards ever single ACC game this year. How that is 'not clicking at all so far' except for the USF game is a statement only some one who 'doesn't know Football' could type. The only game you can say they weren't clicking at all was against UF.

Now, if you want to say the Wake game was the worst of the season so far all around, that's a fair point to try and argue. They are the smallest auto qualifying BCS league school there is, after all.

Insert Goldie and Marky Mark with Rocky's Rambo.

Rocky: All I wanna' do is go the distance with Apollo.

Rocky: Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed.

Rocky: And IF I'm still standing at the end of the 15th ( 4th quarter. ), then I'll know I's wasn't just another bUm from the neighborhood ( M.A.C. ). hUh

The Perfect Storm, with Clooney, was one hell of a flik.

Because that's what it's going to take for your Hurricanes to shock the major college football realm

And the MIGHTY Seminoles will have to play their worst game of the season.

Chit, even during Miami's bleak, murky PROBATION period, I don't believe the Canes were a - 21 point underdog. Maybe against MIGHTY F.S.U. they were, but I don't know.

And dig this y'all Miami, Florida zealots, that point spread will go up a few points by game time. Bloody well guarantee it.

FSU Game does not matter!

Va Tech & Duke is all that Matters...

What does it say about the ACC when Duke becomes a relevant part of the Conversation...

FSU passes the eyeball test as one of the Top Teams in the Country...

Let's see what Saturday brings...

Go Canes!

Bleeding Orange, Green & White!

It's A Cane Thing...You Just Don't Understand!

How someone trying to use "It's A Cane Thing!" as a blog id can then say that fsu game does not matter is completely dumbfounding.

It's called a primary rivalry game and it always matters.

It ALWAYS matters.

Or you just don't understand, which is obvious. Next you'll throw out the laughable 'fear the necktie' cliche, correct?

Offense has rushed for 200+ yards ever single ACC game this year. How that is 'not clicking at all so far' except for the USF game is a statement only some one who 'doesn't know Football' could type. The only game you can say they weren't clicking at all was against UF.

Posted by: National title elimination game on deck | October 27, 2013 at 02:09 PM

Hold on to your horse there fella. Its pretty obvious that the offense overall has not been in sync (there is still a whole lot to be desired in executing the offense, 200+ yards per rushing doesn't mean anything - see Syracuse's 325 yards against Clemson). The exception is the USF game. We have been struggling to find our offensive identity in other games. Yesterday, if we had executed, the score wouldn't have been close at all. It seems as though the opposing defenses know what we are doing. We couldn't convert a 4th and 1 even though we have a massive OL. You cannot allow two 4th down conversions (let alone one) on defense.

I am glad we are 7-0. But, we need to bring our "A" game to Tally like WF brought their A game to us.

WE are exactly the 02 ohio state team, that won like 4-5 games in the last minute and played the juggernaut NFL loaded U of Miami who won 35 straight or something and had just won the title the year b4.

FSU HAS PLAYED NO ON Besides Clemson, and WHEN we played UF, they had full team with SAME D SPEED AS FSU. WINSTON has not played a team like miami or been in a tight game.

GO TO THE FSU BLOGS IF U WANT NEGATIVIY> FSU FANS know whats ocming. Winston(ALL FRESHMAN) inc Manziel(2 losses last yr) have a freshman game, and ITS OOMING, and FSU Will miss a FG.

Mark my words down . Bethune cookman, Nevada, oooh,nc stte, BC,

UNC THRASHED BC YESTERDAY AND GA TECH KEEPS WINNING

Posted by: D | October 27, 2013 at 02:15 PM

Well, it is obvious we are being grouped with WF, MD, UNC and the like because that's what we have shown so far. It was a pathetic performance by both the O and D yesterday although I am happy for the win.

MIGHTY F.S.U. is going to " get their's " on offense. That's a universal ABSOLUTE and any Cane partisan who believes otherwise, is just bloody REACHING IN THE DARK. Or is that PIZZING INTO THE STRONG TRADWINDS. hUh.

So what it will come down to is Miami's offense trading scores with the Seminoles and a very, very special game from the special teams, i.e., especially THE CINNCY KID ( Yeah, yeah I know he's from the Sunshine state. So what. )

But... one Stevie Morris is not absolutely healthy yet with the ankle and because of this, his throwing mechanics are off and he's skittish standing in the pocket and what not.

And believe or not, the Seminoles are looking to put a bloody HURTING on Morris. A hurting which will probably T.K.O. him from the game.

Nevertheless, all I want to see is the Canes HANG TOUGH for at least three total quarters. If not the full game. That's all.

FWIW... Calvin is absolutely right on with one of his notions. Miami, Florida will have to come out being the AGGRESSER on both sides of the L.O.S.

Othewise, it will absolutely be one Red Injun Redskin Seminole MASSACARE on national telly. That I can guarantee. And so can the Vegas touters. SEE the opening line of - 21 points, which will move up a few points by Saturday.

In case U didn't know it by now. One of the modus operandi of Redneck Jimbo, is to have his defense INTENIONALLY " take out " the opposing foes best offensive player. Whether that is the QB, RB or WR, it doesn't matter to F.S.U. The main objecitve is to TAKE OUT the other teams star player. WITNESS the Maryland game, for instance. The Turtles lose their signal-caller and as they say... the rest is history!!

Football teams that rush for 200 or more yards a game a usually very difficult to stop, so it shows your offense is getting great line play and has great talent at the RB position. Add in the fact the line has given up only 1 sack in any game this season and surrenders a very low percentage of sacks compared to the number of pass attempts and it would suggest the line is protecting well in between opening running lanes for over five yards an attempt per carry. This is an all season long trend, showing offensive production being consistent.

Meanwhile, on the 'improved' side of the ball with Golden's buddy calling the plays, they're still giving up 340+ yards a game total, giving up more than 3.5 yards a carry and have been torched in the air the last two games against a QB platoon with only an NFL caliber TE, and a team that retooled their offense because they weren't any good at running the option to start the year. At least they've generated sacks against mediocre competition to this point in the season so there's a chance to continue that against the best team they'll face this year on Saturday but pointing the finger at the new coordinator hired doesn't hold up when you're trying to find a weakness to this point.

But by all means, bring up an isolated fourth and one, that a kicker who needs to return his athletic scholarship money to the school because he's unreliable at making field goals helped force the team to attempt to try, to back up your mis-targeted attempt at a point. Please proceed, Football.

Posted by: D | October 27, 2013 at 02:33 PM

It comes down to our game plan on D to confuse their QB and neutralizing their D when on O. From what I saw, NC State did move the ball on FSU in the second half and we need to chew up the clock on O.

Unfortunately, while other teams like WF and UNC have developed as the season progresses, we have needed fourth quarter come backs against such teams and have looked rather pathetic. We are living very dangerously.

Hopefully, we can put together an effort similar to the 2005 game at VT and come out of Tally with a win. We are 7-0 and we are not that much off athletically. It is all in the game plan and execution for now.

I see where approximately 50% of those Good Ol' Boys at eoth/canespace are ALREADY bloody THROWING IN THE WHITE TOWEL. No pUn intended. Go bloody figures'.

Get it, white towel = good ol' boy's. dUh

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

I can't say I disagree with U, Mr. Football.

But, my concern is Miami, Florida doesn't have the speed on the defensive line, yet.

And if any team doesn't get some consistent, relative pressue on the QB. It's going to be a bloody LONG, LONG NIGHT for Goldie's team.

Because with Morris and ankle, I don't see the Hurricanes being able to keep the scoring pace with F.S.U.

Like U said above, Mr. Football, the Hurricanes will have to EAT CLOCK vis-a-vis Wake Forest yesterday.

Another analogy is a college basketbal team MILKING the SHOT CLOCK and what not. Limits possesions for their opponents.

27,

So we habe beaten someone....UF.

We do have enough talent to beat FSU. You just think the coaches aren't good enough.

Gallo and his aka'a always throwing up stats, 'stats are for losers and asst coaches, and you aint no asst coach'. Who gives a flying f about your stat quotes dude, WE ALL KNOW the stats, we see the games, and then the hihglights. You act as though you're telling us some 'insider info', or something, lol. You idiotic dolts. If we beat FSU great, and if we don't I just hope we keep it close, because we'll see em again.

Wrong attempt to out an ID again, loser. Only a dolt would say it's perfectly OK to lose to a team because splitting two games is perfectly fine when you get to November undefeated and in the middle of a bid for a title game berth.

but pointing the finger at the new coordinator hired doesn't hold up when you're trying to find a weakness to this point.

Posted by: National title elimination game on deck | October 27, 2013 at 02:41 PM

Relax. We are 7-0. I will never point a finger at any of the coaches. They are doing a bang up job.

However, it is obvious that we are not executing well on both O and D and it was a bigger disaster on the D yesterday. Now, this coaching staff has fixed many of the problems that we have seen, however, our problem of not blowing out relatively weak teams remains. One week is an aberration, two weeks in a row is a habit. I expected us to come out swinging yesterday, but we again needed a fourth quarter comeback. The quality of play we saw yesterday, would not be sufficient to come out with a win in Tally. In fact, we'll be blown out in the first quarter.

We need to come out sharp next week. Jimbo will blow us out given the chance and our coaches know that. Hopefully, our game plans will be perfect and our guys will execute to perfection. They need to do that to put Jimbo in his place.

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

To the 'Real' Canes: enjoy the moment my friends...the losers are always going to lie and attack the Canes. Their pathetic lives mirror their comments on this blog.

The University of Miami Hurricanes are undefeated and are ranked 6th and 7th in all of college football.

The losers have predicted that our Canes were going to lose every single game this season. No matter what our players or coaches do the losers find something to attack them on. They NEVER find things to applaud them for.

We 'REAL' Canes are simply better than the losers in every aspect of our lives.

It's a Canes thing baby--the losers never have and never will understand!!

--------------------------------------------------
You're an A-HOLE dude. Where in my post does it say it's ok to lose to FSU?


U got to look at what U have in SM: Morris is a pocket passer. He is not cut out to really pivot. Here is an example: Bridgewater, Manziel have that bounce those head fakes, pivots, those abilities to create something from nothing. That means, Bridgewater and Manziel can fake U out of your shoes and they still have the ball in their hands waiting for a receiver at the right time, all the while trusting in the OL.

SM can be a little more patient as far as WHERE he releases the ball. He throws into tight coverage way too much. Additionally, he hasn't mastered the FB and TE screens. If I'm the QB I got nothing but trust in Hagens and Walford. Part of that is coaching. SM launches it without thinking.

On the D side, I like Green and Chick. But the D is too far off the ball. This zone is too loose. Against FSU, Winston has the advantage with the OL against a D with just Geeen and Chic. Perryman is good but at that LB position, he's being forced to be everywhere.

Once the FSU OL blows up off the ball, and they will, it becomes a LB game. Too often they are too far back or lost. UM cannot play the 3-4 defense against good teams, unless there is a strong NT which there isn't.

Winston can play pocket, van run when he has to. But he is patient. I see a balanced offensive attack by FSU against a weak UM D.

This is the game where "Goldy is going to see that DunnoToday, DunnoTomorrow JustDunno is out of his league. This is not the MAC.

So we habe beaten someone....UF.
I THINK THE "WIN" AGAINST UF WAS A MIRACLE OR A GIFT DUE TO FIVE TURNOVERS BY UF, JUST LIKE THE CANES "WON" THE LAST TWO GAMES IN THE LAST MINUTE OF THOSE GAMES. THAT HAPPENS VERY, VERY SELDOM.

canesjunkie said: We do have enough talent to beat FSU.
YES, THE CANE PLAYERS ARE AS GOOD AS ANY OF THE PAST CANE CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS IFFFF THEY ARE KEPT IN GOOD CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITION, TAKE THEIR POTASSIUM PILLS AND A LOT OF WATER TO AVOID CRAMPS, TUNE OUT THE CROWD NOISE, AND FOCUS ON NOT MAKING STUPID MISTAKES LIKE OFFSIDES, ILLEGAL PROCEDURE, HOLDING, OR MORRIS THROWING INTO TRIPLE COVERAGE.

canesjunkie said: You just think the coaches aren't good enough.
THAT IS CORRECT. BUT THERE ARE SOME GOOD POINTS. THE OC IS A PRETTY GOOD PLAY CALLER. GOLDEN CLOSELY GUARDS HIS TIMEOUTS. THE CONDITIONING COACH IS DOING A B+ JOB. BUT DUMBO IS NOT A GOOD ENOUGH COACH TO STOP FSU. HE PUTS IN FOUR DOWN DEFENSIVE LINEMEN WHO STOP OTHER TEAMS FOR TWO DOWNS. THEN, HE USES ONLY A THREE MAN RUSH, AND THE OTHER TEAMS GET AN EASY FIRST DOWN.

WITH FSU, THAT IS A GREAT QB WITH A GREAT SUPPORTING CAST OF FAST, IN SHAPE PLAYERS, AND GREAT COACHING.

FOR THE ENTIRE GAME, MIAMI NEEDS FOUR DOWN DEFENSIVE LINEMEN, TWO OVER THE OFF GUARD'S HELMETS, TWO ON THE OUTSIDE SHOULDERS OF THE TE OR TACKLE TO STOP THE END RUN. NO STUNTING, STRAIGHT UP RUSH EVERY PLAY. MIDDLE LBs NEED TO BE WITHIN 3 YARDS OF THE LOS TO STOP THE RUNS UP THE MIDDLE. CORNER BACKS AND DBs NEED TO BE PLAYING TIGHT MAN TO MAN DEFENSE FOR A LOUSY THREE SECONDS TO ALLOW THE PASS RUSH TO GET TO THE FSU QB OR MAKE HIM RUSH HIS THROWS OR THROW THE BALL AWAY.

IF DUMBO, THE DC DID THESE THINGS ABOVE, MIAMI WOULD HAVE HAD EASY WINS INSTEAD OF MIRACLES. AND MIAMI WOULD BEAT FSU.

Prediction: FSU will score a bunch of points. Jimbo wants to let folks know that he belongs.

Duke, Crawford, Walford, Hagens have to continuously have big roles. Just get them the ball SM.

This game will be lost, unfortunately, on D.

Junk knows what he wrote U f-ckin idiot. Hell we all know what the man said, it's on the screen moron. U three or four b y ot ches were no where to be found in the weeks following the game with Florida with all that egg on your faces and all of a sudden the week of FSU and only because of the free fall of that Clemson game, U freakin morons are coming out like cockroaches from a soup kitchen. The sad part is none of U (canesfan27,72, Gallober, Calvina or that Randy Shannon jock sniffer Cool Cat know nothing of the game of football or anything about a rivalry game for that matter. Do we have the horses man on man like FSU has on paper. No, but what we do have is a team full of young guys that play with heart and never quit until that clock hits triple digets, along with a coaching staff that gives everything they have to this team and its fans. And that alone is more than we ever had since Butch Davis left. So whether we win or lose, we are still soaring upward with the best young coaching staff in CFB and one class after another coming in that are complete team guys who know what it means to wear the orange and green. And there is nothing U 4 douche bags can do about that.

Great post championships is all that matters!!

Championships hit it right on the head. Our guys are going to go out and play heart, win or lose. We are not scared of FSU.

Keeping punching, championships is all that matters, those women you reference only know how to whine and complain knowing nothing about Canes football.

Go Canes!

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

U three guys get what it is to be a Cane. I appreciate intelligent minds such as yourselves. We true Cane fans along with this coaching staff and players will overcome all this adversity and claim our rightful place on top of the CFB world in the near future. U guys keep on knockin those morons out and telling it like it is as well.

Canekiller um I meant Zookster,

remember to update your screen name before you post.

I'm tired of going into games knowing we're not an aggressive defense because of the scheme. It's funny hearing all the players not have an answer for why we've been starting off slow, hey players, here's the answer, IT'S NOT YOU, it's the defensive scheme, you're being asked to sit back and see what the offense is doing first and than go from there. The scheme is designed to adjust to what the other offense is doing instead of forcing the offense to adjust to what you're doing. Thus the reason for the slow starts against better teams, get use to it.

I like the fact that we were forced yesterday to have to play more man in one game than we have since coach goldie & the 500 club has been here. If these 2 nimrods want to impress us, and prove they belong, coem this Fsu game, we're going to see who has ballz, cause last year coach goldie told the team, "it's ok. they're just a little bit ahead of us" meaning, come next year we should beat them or the game will be alot closer than it was this year. In the meantime, we coming in as 21point underdogs, rofl, unlike alot of these snake-bitten bloggers in here, vegas has not been fooled.

If coach goldie & the 500 club don't see that as the ultimate sign of disrespect and have a real scheme that's going to be able to do something about it, they might as well start packing there bags now.

I don't understand why our guys are trying to down-play the game this week, who's idea was that, has to be coming from the big 10 crew, saying just treat this game & prepare for it like any other game, yeah ok, whoever think that's good advice, they don't belong here. The reason coach goldie and his minions are trying to tone it down, because one, they don't have the real confidence they need to be here and they're already preparing the post-game speeches.

If coach goldie & the 500 club want us to believe in them, here is there ultimate chance, win this game.

This team has heart. The defense is much better then people give them credit for. This was a trap game and we won it. This team wasn't suppose to be more then a 9 win team. Most people thought we would be lucky to get that. This team will win 10 at least. They may lose to fsu because fsu has more talent right now but it wont be because they don't have heart.

/////////////////////////////////////

I'm not sure where people get this "this team wasn't suppose to be undefeated at thsi point" or "this team wasn't suppose to be more than a 9 win team"

says who, where do yall come up with this stuff, i've always said, with the weak schedule i heard we had, we should win all the games. Plus is said, shannon won 9 games in here 3rd year with a tougher schedule, so coach goldie should eclispe whatever shannon did with this weak launching pad manufactured schedule.

The gaytor win, jeff driskel still had a career day, the problem i got with the 500 club, somebody is always having a career day against that sissy scheme, yesterday, i thin kit was #12 who i think i heard it said, he had more yards against us than he had his whole career at wake.

And why did we continue to put a linebacker on campanaro, it only took until the 4th quarter to figure out why antonio crawford is on the roster.

If we win at Fsu like we have the last 2 weeks, i'll definitely take it but like i said before, there are "NO EXCUSES" for us to lose this game, Fsu has a new d-co in his 1st year with the team, we got a new oc in his first year with the team. Everybody else on the defensive side of the ball have been here under coach goldie going on year 3 now and half-way thru the season, instead of this defense getting better, as most of us new, as we started playing the stronger teams, the yards would start coming back.

Had coach goldie begging at halftime again for turn-overs like it's the players fault. I said it before, if the 3-4 doesn't create turn-overs, that scheme is in for a long day, where as the 4-3, creates turn-overs and 3 & outs.

Fsu can't wait to try and show out against us, no more stupid sacks & fumbles by more to let Fsu back in the game when we had that 10 point lead, or no more stupid interceptions like the one he was trying to throw to duke who wasn't even open or fully out of his break yet.

And stop under-throwing stacy coley. When the big plays are there smo17 has got to hit them.

Again I repeat:

Stop under-throwing stacy coley, when the big plays are there YOU/smo17 got to hit them. Just in case you didn't know, this ain't the nba slam-dunk contest where you get a 1 minute to keep trying to make the same dunk, pathetic, nobody came there to watch somebody practice.

U three guys get what it is to be a Cane. I appreciate intelligent minds such as yourselves. We true Cane fans along with this coaching staff and players will overcome all this adversity and claim our rightful place on top of the CFB world in the near future. U guys keep on knockin those morons out and telling it like it is as well.

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

Thank you Championships...note how Calvin is trying to bury your comments with more of his endless bullsheet...allow me to request you repost your telling words.

No worries cane nation, wait until Coach No D has 11 seniors starting and 6 seniors in the backup spots, he'll show you how to coach defense. And yes those seniors will be all redshirt seniors, gaining 180 pounds per year in the weight room through UTough. Then they will do what they are taught and we won't give up 400 yards a game. Maybe when we drop 325 pound Curtis Porter in coverage he'll be able to play in space. I don't know about y'all but I can't wait until Quan is asked to cover Rashard Green on a drag route.

Zook can you start posting your excuses before the FSU game?

Big challenge going to FSU. Real Big Stage... They have been dissed and dropped to #3. They will want to prove that they are a BCS championship game contender They are a very strong team. Winston is one of those amazing QBs, great passer, runner and super confident kid. They are loaded.

That said, UM must play with passion from the first snap. Forget this "flat" crap at the outset of the game. They must be very aggressive on D. If not, FSU will eat them alive. Not sure if Donofio gets it, or if he still thinks this is Penn State...Sit back and defend a power running offense. That is not FSU or contemporary football.

Morris must have a great game. He must be consistent and not rattle easily. FSU will rush him hard. He must spread the ball. The O line needs dominance. If not, our RBs will get pushed back as in the 2nd half against UF. Ball control should be our strategy. It will be good to have Scott in the lineup at WR.

I think FSU has the talent and has not shown a tendency to choke so far. The Canes must play a superior game in all phases. And this kid Goudis needs to stop missing FGs. It is FSU that should be wide right or wide left, and a FG could be critical in this game...if UM can play with these guys...

A huge challenge for UM! Go Canes!
