Dnorfrio must go...tonight. this is disgraceful!

Eye of the storm!

Miami's defense was weak allowing the Hookies to make them seem like a great offense. Fact Defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio is a terrible play caller. It's time for Al Golden to think business before friendship and make a decision.
Over the last 4 games our defense is Swiss cheese. We are Mediocre.
Are offense is so predictable and we on our way to back to back losses.

Crappy Hyundai Bowl here we come

Yes 30 is Highsmith , a player who couldn't make a back up role at a junior college, this team blows ans does the coaching staff, If D oh no doesn't get dumped, they can send Golden down the river too ,,,,,

Alquaddin & McCord are our best DE's on team and they only get in on some third downs can someone explain this to me

Coach goldie is the best coach in all of college football, for the other team!

at least the Heat lost

Here is a question for those of u out there that are more astute at this than I am. Could FSU have scored like 100 points on us if they have wanted? I mean, VT just put 42 on the U and they are nothing compared to the Seminoles. I guess I am obligated to go to the deepest depth of despair,,,, The U sUcks the big one. I know one thing for sure, I won't be watching whatever toilet bowl the U may get invited to.

All you see is VT receivers running in open space with Miami defenders chasing after them...absolutely pathetic.

And D'Onofrio lines the defense back in their base schemes...it is unimaginable what must go through that guy's head.

Even with the clock running out and everyone knows VT will run D'Onofrio refuses to stack the box.

At least we have two good teams in the state. FSU and UCF. The canes were a fraud.

3 close games to crappy teams and now back to back blowouts, we shouldn't be in the top 25 after today

The Defense is young, inexperienced, cupboard was left empty, guys are freelancing, guys are not trusting the process... or maybe D'Onofrio is simply a pathetic coach. He would make my JV team's triple option offense look good. I wonder if we would hit 500 yards? Even with my 200 lbs lineman, and 120 lbs backs?

Pathetic

The canes are going to plummet in the polls. Now way that they can stay in the top 25. They are getting blown out at home to a bad unranked VT team. They have to fall below VT and Duke. Duke beat the Hokies at VT.

Well at least we aint 4-5...;)

this is horrible ive tried to stay positive with al golden and staff the last 3 yrs but to look like this....this is 80 % coaching problems.


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

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

Quite true JSY.

3rd and 1 and only 6 men in the box in obvious run situation.. Smh

After all, The U has not beat anyone...The U beat the overrated Florida. thats it..Look at them now. They are terrible. time to watch Bama vs. LSU now

True Cane, call the police, this escort service has been going on for too long now. The 500 club does not disappoint once again.

They wander y no one shows up to gms. Look at the product out there. I was a 15 yr season ticket holder but i just couldn't keep giving my $ away. Bring back BUTCH and all those STUDS he recruits

Fsu or virginia tech...no difference.

How does the same running play keep working, lol!

They wont commit to stopping the run.. Smh

I'm with rj... I just turned them off too... wish I cud sell my duke tix for nxt wk too... this is almost as bad as the last ob game... tried to be patient but 3 yrs of this crap.... FIRE COACH D!!!!!!!!!! HE'S EASLIY THE WORST D CO IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL ... maybe all of football... peewee football coaches cud get more out of our d than this guy... last wk was fine cuz fsu has more talent but this is ridiculous, embarrassing & pathetic.... YOU CANNOT PLAY ZONE/PREVENT THE WHOLE GAME... it's not just the game... even the lame announcers make fun of this defense... PLEASE FIRE NOFRIO


Coach goldie is the best coach in all of college football, for the other team!

LMAO

Beamer must have had to stifle laughter when watching the film of D'Onofrio's defensive schemes.

Just now with the clock running out D'Onofrio sends in a scheme looking for the pass when here again everyone including the cheerleaders knew they would run...another first down!

539 yds

will lose to Duke they love crossing routes they are licking thier chops to play against this defense

After tonight, I agree the U belongs outside the top 25. I wouldn't even consider them at #50 at this point. I won't wear Dolphin garb until Ross fires Ireland. I will now no longer wear UM garb until D'Onofrio is fired and I see the Canes become respectable again.

Good night y'all. See ya next season, maybe.

AHHHHHHHHH FALALAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAA LALLALLLLALLLALAAAAAALLAAAAAHHHHHH

Yankee,

I agree! Butch brought back this program once. He is a great college recruiter and he will bring back the canes swagger. You better believe that this cane will not be soft under Butch.

Can't wait to hear Goldens response to this one. Oh and of course he will back his buddy D'onofrio.
This fricken team has made no progress on defense since he's been here. Same crap every year and don't blame it on talent or injuries..

Board of trustees MUST take a stand on this with Golden. If Golden doesn't want to part with his friend then let the search begin for a new coach. This is pathetic

Don't worry guys, Reject Zook and Delusional Dom will be on here in the morning with all of the excuses for this embarrassment. They will probably even tell us how good VT's offense is (just like after the GTech, UNC, and WF games) and how they were siked out to be playing the 11th ranked team on prime time. Yada yada yada

Can't forget about the blog cry baby, 5 Titles agreeing with everything that they say. Sorry if "blog cry baby" hurts your feelings princess!

Burst Bubble "Yep"

I guarantee we hear excuse after excuse why we didn't win. Golden says its up to him to get it fixed. The problem is nothing gets done

I am now watching the UCF game. Great game. That is my new team (at least for this year). I cannot stand watching the canes. They are so soft.

This will be an 8-4 team, AT BEST, before the season's over. One game better than last season. Not much improvement at all.

After the game we'll hear coach beamer talk about how well coached we are tho, and how hard we played, don't worry.

Calvin,

Good thing we have UTough, now we can stay on the field and get drugged for 4 whole quarters.

Yes, UCF holds. They win!!!

Whats the excuse when D gives up 42 pts & over 500 yds of offense

I'm still trying to figure out how we got to play V-tech 2 years back to back at home!

Your absolutely correct Orlando Dolphan.. This DEFENSE is SOFT..

We want Butch! We want Butch!

all these young men have done is do what the coaches have asked of them from the off season programs to gain the size and strength, practices,to games. tere are seniors,4 star recruits at every position so please stop posting about lack of talent. ITS LACK OF COACHING PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

Miami is a few years away from competing for a National Championship. At this point, one can only hope Coach Golden will get them to finish the year strong and try to 'overachieve' this year with a 10-2 or 9-3 season. Build on what we have and move forward.

I just hope that this last two weeks games do not cause a hangover affect that causes a positive season spiral into a series of losses that become a mediocre season. I am a Cane fan through and through and will support this team. It is just painful to watch games like this when this team has a chance to take that next step. Just to only come up short.

This defense has to get better. Coming into the 4thQuarter of tonight's game, the Miami defense has let it's opponents score on 13 of the last 20 drives. This defense has given up over 1066 total yards in the past 2 games. Something has to change and it must be D'onofrio.

LOL, that's why coach goldie was complaining about guys being out of shape, of course they got tired playing this scheme when the mac crew got here, coach shannon had his defense in shape for 3 & outs, not non of this escort service. Why is smo17 still in the game, lol, great coaching. Let's use a timeout to try and mess with vegas!

BTW, Larry Coker's UTSA team is 4-2 in conference, better than our record! And that's with a 6-year old program already playing D1 football! So glad all of you hard core Canes fans ran him, Kehoe, Soldinger, and the others off like you did. I mean, it would have been horrible to have so many 9-3, 10-2 seasons. That would have been an embarrassment, right?

LOL, Miami calls a TO.

What type of dismal performance did the canes display tonight?
Our corners and linebackers play 10 yards off the receivers??? The philosophy of more plays= more chances to make mistakes is making our defensive coordinator look like an amateur. You can't expect to be a top defense like that, what your doing is allowing your defense to make more mistakes. We look like an FCS team playing defense agaisnt a powerhouse. Mediocre fans are happy with progress of beating a terrible Florida team and middle of the road ACC teams.

Expect another close game against duke, due to our style of defense. Duke is not good, they are a decent team on the uprise.

Miami should bend over again and make duke look like a Oregon offense vs an FBS team


So disappointed, false progress with a weak schedule

Yankeecane... the excuse is that the rain was freelancing!
