Lamar Thomas, Andre Johnson, Clinton Portis headline 2014 UM Sports Hall of Fame inductees

Current Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Hurricanes football greats Clinton Portis and Lamar Thomas headline the UM Sports Hall of Fame’s Class of 2014.

All eight members will be formally introduced at halftime of Miami’s home finale against Virginia on Saturday, Nov. 23.

The Class of 2014 also includes Heat forward James Jones (basketball, 1999-2003), Jeff Morrison (baseball, 1978-81), Wyllesheia Myrick (track, 1998-2002), Rio Ramirez (diving, 1997-99) and Javy Rodriguez (baseball, 1999-2002).

The University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame was founded in 1966 by eight Dade County Circuit Court judges, who wanted to establish an organization that would recognize those student-athletes, coaches and administrators who excelled at their sport and brought acclaim to the University of Miami through achievements and championships.

With the addition of the eight newest members, the Sports Hall of Fame will increase to 282 honorees. The eight-member class will be inducted at the 46th annual UMSHoF Induction Banquet, which will be held April 10, 2014.

For more information on the banquet, fans can visit www.UMSportsHallofFame.com or call 305-284-2775.

loser cane talk
what else is new
canes still suck
ask any Taiwanese

StormsCominBitches,

Love your tenacity, honesty and passion when defending the Canes against the haters on this blog.

The Haters claim to be Canes fans and slam a 7 and 1 team regarding every single thing they do...in other words they are not Canes fans and simply claim to be hoping others will believe they are credible and thus accept their lies to be true.

Keep up the great work my friend.

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

Must defend them canes from all
Alberto Golden is the best coach in the history of organized sports
like my man delUsional would say, "he has the record to prove it"
like it's been asked before, why be a cane fan poasting on a cane blog and use a gator name
Must be cause U be some doUche

gonna be glad when Oregon smokes Stanford tonight and Florida state gets snubbed. gonna be great.your record is meaningless, not beating out the O suckas. hope we get a second chance.

#11 in the BCS and about to fall further. you got zero chance sucka. should be rooting for FSU they are your only chance in a dream world only. hope u get a second chance to get an even bigger drumming.

Andrea Adelson - (Graduate of the University of Florida.)
AA thinks Miami is going to struggle against this defense without Duke Johnson, and Thomas will redeem himself with a solid game. A solid game means Thomas won't have four turnovers. Miami has not won back-to-back games in the series since winning three straight from 2000-02. AA picks: Virginia Tech 21, Miami 20.

What a shocker, a clueless UF fan picking against the Canes? At least she has the guts to put her real name out there for future ridicule, and she admits it when she is wrong.

Yep, She is braver that Mr. cut and paste name-changing fellow. You know, the one that has decided the Taiwanese are experts on College Football because they picked against the Canes. Well, they are 1-7, just like the name-changing fellow.

http://espn.go.com/ncf/preview?id=333132390

Preview of the game shows how classy both the Canes and Hokie coaches are.

"I think he got through that and made the program better," Beamer said. "Not just survive. He made it better. I thought he did a heck of a job. And I told him that too. And I do. I think he's gone in there and been a very steady, solid influence on that program."

But the name-changing fellow claims he knows more about college football than Frank Beamer.

Those who keep saying coach goldie needs a raise for sticking around are imbeciles, in fact, he hasn't earned the money yet that he's gotten before the extension. Anybody ever been on an interview? In alot of real job interviews, at the end they normally ask, do you have any questions of us/company? At that point coach goldie should've asked whether their were any pending allegations/investigations that they were aware, and on most interviews, people don't take agents, so neither coach goldie nor his agent thought to ask that question, shame on em, they asked to be apart of this.

The reason coach goldie didn't ask, he wa to busy writing that 300 page binder acting like a buzzard hovering over the program before shannon was fired waiting to spring the "core values" on the troll and them with his "how to" tatics. So he got what he's been drooling for and than when you add in the fact that this guy has been given an opportunity to up his resume by being in the midst of the best football talent in the nation hands down, that's money you can't count. Everybody know if you don't become a part of winning a national title at UM with the type of support coach goldie was/is given, you don't belong in Miami or almost any other program.

Until coach goldie becomes a part of winning a national championship here, he's an outsider, along with his minions.

Stanford, Oklahoma, and LSU lose, moving Miami higher in the rankings after a post-loss beatdown of VT.

Miami moves back to the Top 10, and their SOS get better after beating a 6-3 VT team followed by a 7-2 Duke.

As for the ACC title game, teams struggle in rematches, just like LSU losing to Alabama in their rematch. Miami will have adjusted to the loss of Duke by then.

Also, you can tell by coach goldie's body language he's irritated that we had to play Fsu last week & then turn-around and play V-tech this week, to of the best defenses back to back. In fact as of right now, i think V-tech has a better defense than Fsu, because V-tech has a better run defense, duke was slicing Fsu up when coley stopped being an ostrich, they got the man's ankle broke why not run maurice haggens up in there like that, not duke. In fact we shouldn't have even been in those 4th and shorts anyway.

I got news for you, smo17 missed on a lot of throws in that Fsu game and we had there db's beat for most of the game. smo17 doesn't understand ball placement alot of times. Against V-tech, the windows will probably be tighter, them fuller boyz are legit, the youngest one thus far of the fuller's might be the best out of the bunch. I luv going against legit defenses, the question is, do we have the defensive scheme where we can get into a defensive battle, without us causing turn-overs, no we don't.

Teams know to stay away from dzp, and don't tell me tyrone corneilius is starting again this week.

Congrats, Lamar and Johnson and Portis: I know Lamar and remember that when he came out of Gainesville he was equally good as a basketball player. If fact, I think he was runner up for FL Mr. Basketball. They are each deserving of this recognition.

Lamar T. and Horace Copeland were a dangerous WR combination. Copeland had a 42-vertical and also was a good basketball player. A lot of people wonder how Lamar got away from UF: Answer: JJ.

80's 90's killer instincts on D, ESPN AND FOX MESSAGE BRD'S WE ARE KNOWN AS POWDER PUFF DEFENSE THAT NEEDS SKIRTS AND QB

FYI: Lamar was in the same class as Charles Pharms, who went public in Sports Illustrated, etc. That I still can't really figure out, especially as it occurred under JJ. I think Pharms was mad because he didn't really hit the big time.

I was obviously a b-ball player and I can tell U that Sapp was the fastest football big man I have ever seen take a basketball court. Sapp had a handle and had moves. Ryan Collins had big time game, too. I remember Darren Crein (LB) or something like that. A rock. And speaking of the Rock, glad he turned out OK, but he didn't play a lot as a DT under JJ.

But even guys who were at UM before I was can tell U that Willie Smith (TE) was the best TE ever at UM.

Leon Searcy was a quiet guy, but could play b-ball. Then there was Jimmy Jones. Jones once dived in the body of water in mid campus to tussle with an alligator. Lot of us back then felt sorry for the gator....Jones was so good he left football for a year and JJ brought him back and he never missed a beat.

FSU vs Wake Forest

It's also an interesting game to watch this weekend.

WF QB was actually quite good in my opinion. I consider him better than Steven Morris. Quick, accurate throws and can check through his reads very quickly.

Interested to see how FSU will handle him and the receivers. They did lose their TE Campanaro who was giving us fits.

FSU wins this one.

Hurley Brown was around in those days. Had game.

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

I said this the first year coach goldie took over, we have the softest defensive scheme in the state, including MEAC schools. Most of the guys that stayed home didn't do it for coach goldie, t3 made it clear why he did it as well as deon bush.

I'm tired of watching other teams play great defense using our blue-print. No matter what though, none of them have produced the type of players we have thru-out the years, and that's the difference. You get a Miami player and put him in an aggressive defensive scheme it goes hand and hand with our mentality, this zone crap is for sissies, all i keep hearing coach goldie and them say, "we didn't give up the big play" see, that's a big 10 mentality, so what if you give up a big play every now and than, it's better than giving up 500 yards almost every game.

cool cat, don't forget, brett perriman could ball to. Were you there that time when sapp beat i forget his name running backwards about the last 30 yrds or so, lol, sent dude packing back home and he was suppose to be #1 from wherever he was from!

Five dummies don't know math

Vegas knows you suck and are over rated

Bout time you found out

I'm not a big fan of zone D, unless you're up by a lot of points and just want to coast until the game is over. We got the players to get up close in people's faces, if we play the right schemes, disguises, and go at the approach the right way.

Trust me, an offense doesn't want to be thinking about what a given D is going to do every play. Again, we can work with this D. We can work with Porter.

We got to have a coaches huddle and come up with a better approach. Just sayin.....

U people need to get a life ..everyday w the same BS back and forth. All of ya!! ESP Calvin...same thing over and over. GO OUTSIDE and get off the computer. Dawg! It's like a group of little teenage girls bickering back and forth.

"Stanford, Oklahoma, and LSU lose, moving Miami higher in the rankings after a post-loss beatdown of VT." Do you not understand the word "LOSE"? I mean after reading the word in four gatr games this year, you would figure it would sink into that name-changing skull of yours. I guess not though, must be a mental block due to trauma you suffered that occurred on 9/7/2013.

Obsessed fellow talking about math, perhaps you should learn to read English. I never CLAIMED that Miami would move ahead of Alabama, Oregon, or Baylor. All that hatred burning in your eyes is affecting your reading comprehension, fellow.

Stanford with 2 losses, one to an unranked 4-4 Utah, falls below Miami. Especially after they lose to Oregon far worse than Miami did to FSU. There are no 2 loss teams in the Top 10, which would be the ONLY way they stay above #11 Miami.

LSU with 3 losses is ALREADY two spots below Miami, and will lose those votes that have them ahead so far.

Oklahoma, only ONE spot ahead of Miami, falls below Miami with a second loss.

Poor name-changing fellow cannot figure out that he just made a fool of himself yet again. But hey, he will change IDs, claim he never said the disgusting things he has been caught saying in the past, and then try to lecture Canes fans again yet fail.

Gator Clause must be dead if you spend all your time here.... How sad for you, you tried to kill this blog and instead you ended up getting 21-16 to kill yours. Heck, Jesse likes 21-16 better than he likes you, GatorAluminum.

You were warned that Karma would reward your behavior.
Looks like the Karma Scooter Company paid dividends on you this week. LOL!

"Looks like the Karma Scooter Company paid dividends on you this week"

What does someone posting crap on this blog have to do with a player getting injured in Gainesville?
If that was a valid correlation then half of the UM squad would be out for the season thanks to 21 - 16.
I understand you trying to defend your team and your blog from intruders but post something that makes sense. It is better if you call the fellow manes and insults rather than post idiotic statements like that one.
This dude is a loser and so is 21 - 16, we would all be better without both of them.

"Stanford with 2 losses, one to an unranked 4-4 Utah, falls below Miami. Especially after they lose to Oregon far worse than Miami did to FSU. There are no 2 loss teams in the Top 10, which would be the ONLY way they stay above #11 Miami.

LSU with 3 losses is ALREADY two spots below Miami, and will lose those votes that have them ahead so far.

Oklahoma, only ONE spot ahead of Miami, falls below Miami with a second loss."


So what 5 loonie, so what. That would put you at #8 at best. Guess for a loser cane that is something to celebrate. "We are #8, whoopie!" says the dUmmy 5 loser. Amazing what dolts you and your boyfriend sidcane are.
We are #8
We are #8

"Five retard don't know odds"

And you do? I predicted losses by lower ranked and underdog Stanford (10.5 home underdogs), LSU (11.5 road underdogs), and Oklahoma (14.5 road underdogs).

You are saying I am wrong, essentially meaning you are taking three double digit underdogs against the unbeaten #1, #3, and #5 teams in the nation? But I don't know the odds? Odds are that you through around insults as often as you throw around new IDs, and in both cases they never stick.

"Vegas knows you suck and are over rated"

Vegas has us as more than a touchdown favorite, and based on their predicted winners, moving up at least two spots in the next BCS rankings. Vegas knows we don't suck, and are UNDERrated.

Oh, and only two of the CBS picks out of a possible 21 match your delusional viewpoint.

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/features/writers/expert/picks/straight-up/11

Bruce Feldman lives in California and picked Stanford. The rest went with me and Oregon.

Tom Fornelli lives in Illinois and picked Oklahoma.
The rest went with me and Baylor.

I bring facts, you bring hate, lies, insults, and repeatedly new IDs. You truly are a messed up fellow.

Calvin writing with the wrong persona this pm. Forgot the bad spelling and ghetto talk.

Also, she acts as if she was in some room when Al was hired. She can't find her or any of her castmember's butts with 2 hands, but "knows" that Golden didn't ask key questions in his interview. Surprising, because Calvina's only interview question was if she knew which end of a shovel to use. She hedged and said she was good with either end.

"So what 5 loonie, so what".

ummm, YOU brought it up, and now instead of admitting that you were wrong, yet again, you instead go for the insult and ID change route.

Being ranked in the Top 10 was SUCH a big accomplishment for you to celebrate according to you last year when the 11-2 gatrs finished number 9 and Miami was unranked.

Now Miami is looking to finish better than that, the gatrs look to finish much worse than last year's Canes, and you claim it is nothing to celebrate? You are going to have to change IDs again, this one has no credibility left. Your new one can start off by claiming you never joked about the death of Canes players, but that I am not allowed to joke about the scooter accident of a gatr player. Go ahead, in three, two, one....

Storms, going out on a limb about 2 feet in diameter with that FSU over WF pick. Man, that was bold.

VTVTVTVVTVTVVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTTVTVTVT

VT has had our number and have a stronger Defense than their rankings show.

They are a lot like us: Strong Defense, Weak Offense

The upside is we have the potential on Offense to improve.

I trust Dallas will keep the running game moving forward as he's already proven himself.

It all comes down to Steven Morris making better plays with his head.

"You are going to have to change IDs again, this one has no credibility left. Your new one can start off by claiming you never joked about the death of Canes players"

Let it go 5 schizo personalities. Again with the wild claims about "joked about the death of Canes players". Did you have to google a post from the 1960s to justify that one? The only joke is your team. And you.

"Looks like the Karma Scooter Company paid dividends on you this week"

----
Who said anything about a player getting injured in Gainesville? I was pointing out that the scooter carrying Karma to this fellow made a big delivery against Georgia and going forward. The fact that some gatr player got in a drunken scooter accident is just coincidental. And then the guy claimed he did it right after practice. Since when do the gators practce at bars at two in the morning? I know MORRISON does his barking practice then, but the rest of the team does that too?

This "fellow" has spent five years threatening us, joking about killing Canes players and coaches, and you don't speak up at him.

I make a joke that matches one of the gatrs injuries, and that is considered going too far? Double standard.

You continually, daily, personally attack me, in exactly the same way as you did when you wrote comments about Pata, Taylor, Harris, and Shannon. Yet you figure by chanigng IDs that it would not get remembered and recognised?

I TRIED to give you a chance to leave me alone, to turn a new leaf, show some class, and stick with one ID. You chose instead to attack Canes fans, players, and coaches. You chose instead to attack me for suggesting a Canes win could have them move up in the rankings. You chose to claim Vegas was against me, against Miami, and even that some animator in Taiwan was picking against the Canes this week.

Now, if you come here, you get what you deserve. I avoid the gatr blog, you can avoid ours. Well, physically you could, emotionally, you cannot control yourself. Why do you continue to go on the Canes site daily? Not because they face the gatrs, not even because they lost to the gatrs. It is apparently ONLY to attempt to get Canes fans banned from here, the way you did in the Post and Sun Sentinel. You failed. Instead your blog is the one that is dead. Karma, fellow, karma.

Miami wins by 14 plus this weekend. Offense is do for an explosion, even w/o Duke

So, the fellow is predicting an Alabama, Oregon, and Baylor loss this weekend. Seems to me that Vegas disagrees with him.

Yet somehow, he figures that is a reason to attack me when I said NOTHING to him for two days.

Funny how he gets a new ID to support him whenver he gets called out. The pattern is sooooo predictable.

Look, fellow, leave me alone, I leave you alone. You attack, I will defend myself from your obsessive attacks. You don't like it, you can always go to YOUR blog, where you belong in the first place. I was talking Canes and rankings and VT, you were talking about how I don't know math, without giving ANY facts to support that claim.

Posted by: Five Titles

Easy big fella. Seems you are taking this far too seriously, after all it is a sports blog. Football is not that serious, it's just a game.
"Karma scooter" is just too coincidental with that scooter accident up there and really nothing to do with what goes on in this blog.
As far as your claims about this fellow threatening you for 5 years goes. I'll have to take your word for it, I haven't been posting or reading the blog for 5 years. I have not seen any of those things.
I have seem a lot of childish behavior on both sides.
Don't care to "speak up to him", don't think it would make a difference. You seemed a little more reasonable that is why I chided you.
Go ahead and continue your war of words and see how far it takes you both.

Dom, I hope so.

Old Canes teams, after a loss, would tear apart their next opponents. Rarely would they lose two in a row unless they were one of the probation teams.

Weak teams react to one loss by turning it into a three game losing streak or more. This Canes team is stronger in character than some team currently mired in three straight losses, one that has to beat a perennial doormat they haven't lost to in about 25 years to keep it from stretching to a likely five game losing streak.

This Miami team can leave this as the sole blemish on their schedule. That would be great. Like in 1988, when a loss on the road to a string rival in Notre Dame turned into motivation to run the table on the rest of the NCAA, including a Texas team that thought they were better than Miami, until about one minute into the game.

VTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTVTTVTT

VT per ESPN is the 9th ranked defense in the country.

VT per ESPN is the 102nd ranked offense

Our offense has their work cut out for them this weekend.

Our Defense will keep us in the game.

Canes winning this game comes down to:

1) Steve Morris QB play

2) O-line and Dallas keeping the running game rolling

Looking at VT's losses:

vs Bama: 35-10
vs Duke: 13-10
vs BC: 34-27

If UM doesn't score effectively, we may lose this game guys.

JLC, I have asked him to leave me alone, and I ignore him for the most part. But he chooses to go personal, racist, and threatening, so I stop him, or at least don't allow his threats and lies to be accepted as fact. He is afraid to meet up in person, but still acts tough on here, just with a new ID each time.

I don't take alot of the stuff said here seriously, but the stuff he said about the family of Bryan Pata, and then bragged about later on at the suggestion that his words might hurt their family, is not something that belongs in a sports blog, a political blog, or anywhere.

If he would stop, I would stop. I have a great Canes team to talk about. But he has nothing other than his hate, so he continues his personal attacks.

SCB, that list of loss scores doesn't even tell the whole story. Even one of their wins shows how weak they can be.

They were down by 18 to Alabama at the half, and then Alabama coasted.

They needed a blocked punt for a TD and a last minute (well, last three minutes) tying TD and three OTs to beat Marshall. Middle Tennessee beat Marshall easier.

Duke 13-10 was 13-0 after 44:48 in the game. That last ten was against a prevent Duke defense running out the clock.

BC 34-27 was 34-20 with three minutes left, when again the prevent defense gifted them a late score.

Miami is better than they showed against FSU in that second half, but VT does not have the talent of FSU, and therefore like Dom suggested, Miami should beat the spread and win by double digits.

@FIVE TITLES

Just ignore the trolls.

You're letting him get you worked up, which he absolutely loves.

He'll never meet you in person, and will never let up on messing with you because he sees you get all frustrated and upset. And he's probably sitting at his keyboard laughing.

Just get back to talking Canes football with the rest of us serious fans.

Calvin: I remember Perryman: He was from Miami. Good b-ball player. But the thing about Perryman, as about all of JJ's players, when BP got to the NFL he simply became a true pro, especially in Detroit. He was already good, but he exceeded expectations and then some.

@FIVE TITLES

This VT game is a potential disaster for UM

Let down game, loss of Duke, Morris still putting on the Jacory Harris look-alike costume....

All potential time-bombs.

SCB, was already doing so. I am not frustrated or upset though. The time for that passed long ago. I know he is sitting at his keyboard in his trailer laughing, as the shocks go out and the tires deflate. Better that than him being out on the streets trying to make good on his threats against Canes players, coaches, and fans. I have proven him to be a liar, a coward, and an obsessed loser with no ties to this blog now that 21-16 has happened. I laugh at him, his inbred family, and his rocking into rust doublewide.

" How sad for you, you tried to kill this blog and instead you ended up getting 21-16 to kill yours"

Stop your sick obsession with dead blogs and dead players and such. You are the only one talking about that.
I'm talking about how your team is over rated and how everyone knows it. Like Vegas. And in Taiwan.


" Heck, Jesse likes 21-16 better than he likes you,"

Sure. And sid likes you. And you like him. That is part of your problem. Get therapy.


"GatorAluminum"

What is that? your feeble attempt at an insult?
I got a better one for you. 5 douche.

@41-14

You're such a trash-talker man.

Who's your team?

SCB, Crawford proved against UNC that he is ready for top billing.

http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=9841948&ex_cid=espnapi_public

Morris had a decent first half against FSU, and two great TD passes. The INTs were once the team started getting desperate and moved away from the running game.

As for let down game, we still have the inside track for the ACC crown, in a better spot than any team other than FSU. There should be no reason for the players to view this as a let down game.

Still I am being optimistic in those assessments.

WF QB was actually quite good in my opinion. I consider him better than Steven Morris. Quick, accurate throws and can check through his reads very quickly.

Posted by: StormsCominBitches | November 07, 2013 at 02:43 PM
############

Yeah, he's so good that he KEPT his Deacon team in the ball game against MIGHTY Miami.

Chit, and if " Marky Mark SOFT ZONE " would have not gone MAN-A-MAN on Wake Forest's final, POSSIBLE drive for a winning T.D., the kid may have been A.C.C. offensive player of the week.

But that's neither here or there now. hUh

There are less than 100 days left in recruiting, and with opposing coaches no longer able to negative recruit us with Nevin Shapiro, there are a few guys that we can now target. Even after the loss to FSU, we are ranked fourth in the nation, and could make it better with a few solid additions.

Johnnie Dixon, with all the usual suspects going after him, is a local Palm Beach product and #39 on the ESPN top 300. Has yet to visit Miami, so if we can get him to come down, we might be able to convince him that Kaaya will throw him plenty of touchdowns.

CJ Hampton, a top Mississippi safety, that is coming to town on 12/2, three days after we finish our regular season and before we go to the ACC Championship game. Once he sees how much better life is here, he will hopefully stick around for five years.

Speedy Noil, does not even have an offer from Miami yet, but as his name implied, he has Coley like speed.
Would be worth a viewing or two.

"I'm talking about how your team is over rated and how everyone knows it."
No, you are LYING about how Miami is over rated and how anyone other than you knows it. But, if that was all you were doing, than my proof that you were wrong would be the end of it. But instead, you went with the multiple personal insults. You can't discuss the facts, the actual spreads, the records, or even your past lies, so you attack the messenger.

"Like Vegas."
Vegas has their spreads such that Miami is more than a touchdown favorite, and will move up two spots or more if their spreads turn out accurate. Sounds like Vegas thinks we are UNDERRATED. Truth Hurts, indeed.

"And in Taiwan."
Yes, because Taiwan is known for their college football knowledge, right?

Posted by: 41 - 14 | November 07, 2013 at 04:48 PM
Two month anniversary of your 9/7 humiliation, and you are STILL on here. Why? Seriously, why?

Once again, HARRIETTUBMANCANE is absolutely correct about the University of Miami, Florida Powers That BE NOT wanting to pay their head football coaches the FAIR MARKET PRICE for major college football C.E.O.'s. hUh

Because the STATISTICAL facts don't lie ( NO. 46 ). Eh s.c.b.

And not only is it a SHAME that the Cane suit's don't/won't keep prime time head coaches around ( Davis anyone. ). The Hurricane football program AIN'T even in the upper-tier of the A.C.C. When it comes to paying TOP DOLLAR for it's head coach and assistants.

Chit, the University of Miami, Florida had the OPPORTUNE moment to hire a 1st/2nd RATE major college football head coach after the Shannon fiasco.

But chose not too!!

And like I've whined previously. Coach Randy Shannon was a FOURTH/FIFTH choice hire ( Nothing against Mr. Randy and what not. ).

And the Cane Powers That Be were probably in a DESPERATION MODE after 3/4 experienced, resume shinning coaches TURNED DOWN Miami, Florida.

So it was natural for the A.D. and President and Board of Trustee's to give Randy Shannon an opportunity.

He!!, urban rumour has it that Miami, Florida DIDN'T wanna' go near Mikey Leach and what not. hUh

But then again, Leach probably would have said NO to a $ 2 million + yearly contract.

Old Canes teams, after a loss, would tear apart their next opponents. Rarely would they lose two in a row unless they were one of the probation teams.

Weak teams react to one loss by turning it into a three game losing streak or more. This Canes team is stronger in character than some team currently mired in three straight losses, one that has to beat a perennial doormat they haven't lost to in about 25 years to keep it from stretching to a likely five game losing streak.

This Miami team can leave this as the sole blemish on their schedule. That would be great. Like in 1988, when a loss on the road to a string rival in Notre Dame turned into motivation to run the table on the rest of the NCAA, including a Texas team that thought they were better than Miami, until about one minute into the game.

What most seem to keep overlooking and fail to realize is, all those teams you're referring too, most of the time the defense set the tone for all of those games, this is why we mostly always deferred to the 2nd half. But now we're deferring to the 2nd half which is good, but how many times have we seen this year teams just drive right down the field on this escort service scheme. This is not an attacking style of defense, so it's not going to set the tone and when we do get picks, alot of times it's because the other team made a mistake and it wasn't a product of us going and getting em.

I'll take a pick, but those sit back and wait type of picks are not going to happen in alot of games. If we coming out in a soft defensive scheme, we don't even look to try and even blitz on the 1st play of defense or surprise the other team with something on the 1st series, we start games out on defense in "safety first" mode, sitting back trying to figure out what the other team is doing, just not a good coaching philosophy, so we'll get games like we got at Fsu.

Now on to V-tech, and i still haven't seen any d-1 qb we've played look bad against us yet, here comes logan thomas and playing a division game where they know what type of scheme is coming now after 2 years, i bet even frank beamer wants to run cross the field and slap the crap out of coach goldie & the 500 club and than say, do you two imbeciles know what you got, apparently not".
