ROFL, cut that out man, all our db's can play both ways, you ain't know, don't forget the "eye discipline he displayed tho" i think coach goldie is going to out due himself after this game if we lose, i think he might mention/blame the uniforms!

This defense has no heart. The offense just scored on a big play. The defense just get back in there and stink it up.

Here comes the wide open crossing route.

We are getting killed on defense, but at least we haven't given up a bomb. LOL, The safeties' are 25 yards off the ball and running another 10 on the snap.

26 missed another tackle

VT approaching 500 yds in offense

D'Onofrio is a full fledged disaster. He has no clue where the ball is going and consistently calls defensive schemes that are precisely what VT was hoping for.

After tonight's debacle it will be hard for Golden to keep him on the staff. I'm not saying he will be immediately terminated, but after the season.

If D'Onofrio is a friend of Golden's he will resign for he has singlehandedly destroyed what could have been a very special season for the Canes...what a shame!

Who the heck is # 30. He was scared to make a tackle.

It is bad coaching and bad players. IT is what it is....I am singing really loud now...ahhhhhhhh hhhahhhaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I've been reading this blog for yrs & have hated gallo Calvin & htc ect just like the rest of my cane fans & tho they aren't right on everything they are right about one thing ... coach d has to go.. this is back to back to back yrs of the worst scheme in college football... you can't watch any football game & see wrs this wide open or holes in the line this big... it's pathetic... I'm finally caving in.. keep golden but fire coach no D... & coach coley needs to get it together quick too... sorry for my first ever doubt but I just can't take it anymore

VT is playing offense against a bad HS defense.

I got some advice for the defense when they go to school on Monday. Put a bag over your heads!

pathetic! ranked #11? what a joke

I wouldn't put it pass him.

41 points to VT??
Logan Thomas was off many team draft boards period. Now No D will have some GMs reconsider.

CHECKMATE by Beamer and Foster.

Let's see if the Canes throw in the towel. Or have the GRIT to bounce back against Duke.

Because it's going to be a LONG WEEK for Golden and the team!!

101st ranked offense putting it to us...wow!

the fans that made the game are going home. they have scene enough

perfect storm tonight, pathetic offense, defense and special teams

Get coach Shannon back as D coordinator..better than this dude we got now

D should go by himself please donnt make fun of us anymore

this canes team is a D I S G R A C E !!!!!!

Ok, lets look at the bright side....we may qualify for Mrs Fergusons garage and storm window bowl...I know it's wishful thinking....

Hope Golden self imposes another bowl ban...fans cant' take anymore embarrassment..

Just fning terrible, ridiculous, embrassing, unwatchable, sad,

Our lack of defense is awful. We do need to get rid of the d coach. You can't win if you don't stop people on 3rd down. You also can't turn the ball over and win

Golden is the D COACH PEOPLE HE SUCKS! Fire him!

ROFL, people want us to go to a major bowl and get embarrassed with this sissy defensive scheme, prepare for the freelancing talk!

who on here knows how to start an online petition to fire the d cord? im unofficially signing it first and i will officially sign once it gets going

I say let another QB play the rest of the season, develope a qb for next year

Same Old Canes. A decade and counting..............

can UM impose another bowl ban ?

I am giving Golden two years to get some recruits. No more excuses after that. However, the DC has to go. Two years in a row having the worst defense in college football.

This team is regressing wk after wk. With no help in sight because these coaches are in over there heads. Until the board of trustees open up their wallets for top coaching talent us CANES fans have a lot of suffering left

Yes, and there they go....The Tie is Dead,,,, from orange to yella...from Hurricanes to a gentle breeze on the shores of South Beach.... true colors have shown themselves, not pretty nor proud, not a return to greatness nor a valiant effort worthy of wearing the U. Time to go home boys, get dried and warm. Simmer in this loss and search deep in your soul. A

Morris sucks my balls plain and simple

Just go for it. Really they are going to punt.

I can't wait to hear what the excuses from the real fans will be

I am so tired of D'onofrio being defended by some. Ask yourself this: Why can't this team stop anyone from scoring? Miami struggles to stop teams from scoring. D'onofrio only seems to call zone schemes and when he calls a blitz, anyone can see it coming. Why do our DB's always play 7+ yards off the ball? Even when the situation calls for man to man or bump and run coverage. He calls zone schemes a majority of the time. At some point one has to mask the blitz's and play man to man. It almost seems as if D'onofrio is playing a zone prevent defense. In the end it only prevents us from winning games we should be winning.

Golden is a good coach and I believe in him, but D'onofrio has got to go if this team wants to break through and be in the ACC title hunt each year. Yet alone the National Championship. I must have been the only one who was hoping D'onofrio would have taken the Temple job last year.

its not just dnofrio...ITS GOLDEN......he must go also......

the responsibility lies DIRECTLY at the feet of golden......

all you have to do is look at his stats.....he is mediocre....his stats are tell the future....he is at best a .500 coach.....

if no coaches are let go after the way the canes have been playing this year even in the wins, then i have to think al golden is ok with how this team looks and if thats the case he may not be the man for the job

I was EXCOMMUNICATED for CALLING OUT miami's current defensive coordinator. As well as not PLAYING very nicely with the fella's in canespace.

Again, the Hurricanes will GO NO WHERE near the Top 10 with Mark D'Onofrio as defensiv coordinator.

Oh, WHERE'S ron zook NOW!!

The 2 things that is a problem is our QB and our defense. Morris is obviously hurt, and is being selfish by playing, he can give us much, because he is not mobile and cant push off his throwing leg. Defense, is coaching, if they cant teach these guys to break down and tackle and to stop over persuing plays, they we need to make a change. They give up so many big plays it is pathetic. They have the playmakers, they just need the right coaching to sharpen up the fundamentals and they would be great.

there is no excuse I watched and cheered for the canes since the early 70s, I will no longer watch , pay to go to games or root for the Miami hurricanes until this D co or is gone, period this team is disgusting......

Forget about the coastal division. They will fall out of the top 25 now. They will probably go to the crappola bowl now. Try selling that to future recruits, Golden.

Let the Ryan Williams era begin. I am tired of seeing Morris. I cannot wait until he goes to the NFL to be a third string QB for someone. I just hope that Ireland does not draft him.

Love D'Onofrio's new bend AND break defense. Why didn't I think of that combination? You SUCK, and because of you WE SUCK!

This is TWO weeks in a row of getting embarrassed on National television. Part of the process should be to make D'Onofrio stand up in front of the media and answer real questions on why his schemes suck, why his play calling sucks, and why he hasn't been fired yet. So far the only good thing about Golden has been his recruiting under the looming sanctions and his U Tough program that dropped body fat percentages and added a lot of strength to our team.

This is a terrible debacle for the entire program. I have been supportive of Golden up to this point, but his protection of D'Onofrio is the last straw. This team is pathetic and under performing. Big changes must be made soon.

Even if we get rid of dno golden will just get replace him with another dno. This defense is goldens and not only dnos

I never ever turn off a Canes game but I just did,I cant watch this BULLS*** anymore. The D sucks...end of story. They lack the talent and the coordinator should get fired. I love Miami, and bleed orange and green but I cant take this anymore. Golden needs to do the right thing and fire his ass. Also the O coordinator sucks too, I would give him 1 more year and that's it. Lets hope we get a qb too because Morris is...well you already know.

i think 30 is aj highsmith, he has been playing poorly all year. but they keep putting him on the field

I'll always be a Cane, but I can't watch this anymore. I think I've caught my last game this season as I fear it'll just be more of the same. Embarrassed at the effort, but mainly our DC. Please do the right thing for the program Coach Golden. This isn't Miami football. We've made UNC, WF, VT, and even GT look like QB U. Enough.

I'm still here and my boys are 4-5!!! Proud of them Gators!

It all begins and ends with the QB, If we had Aaron Murray or AJ Mcarron, we would be in the hunt, especially with our weapons on the outside, and Dallas should be getting a whole lot of more touches. All I can say is typical Miami falling short and loosing a game they should have won.
