« Al Golden after the Hurricanes' first bowl practice in three years. Practice No. 2 is today. | Main | Nine Canes named to Coaches' All-ACC team »

So, what do you think of the Teddy vs. The Canes Bowl (AKA Russell Athletic Bowl)? Should be fun.

Sounds like a movie: Teddy vs. The Canes.

At one time, Teddy Bridgewater was committed to the Miami Hurricanes. Now he's committed to beating the Hurricanes.

Bridgewater, a Miami Northwestern product who now stars as the Louisville Cardinals' quarterback, will lead the Cardinals against Miami at 6:45 p.m. Dec. 28 in the Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando.

They'll officially announce the matchup in about half an hour. The game will be played at the Citrus Bowl Stadium.

Eighteenth-ranked Louisville (16th in USA Today coaches' poll) is 11-1 and 7-1 in the American Athletic Conference.

Miami, ranked 25th in the USA Today coaches' poll, is 9-3 and 5-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Miami leads this series 9-1, but lost 31-7 the last time they played the Cardinals in Louisville in 2006. 

Bridgewater pulled his commitment from Miami after former UM coach Randy Shannon was fired. He followed his Miami Northwestern teammate and favorite receiver Eli Rogers to Louisville.

Bridgewater's mother was unhappy with the way Hurricanes fans reacted to her son decommitting from UM before he made Louisville his choice.

Regardless, Bridgewater is a great talent, and as repeatedly witnessed in his three seasons at Louisville, has a knack for creating good situations out of bad ones on the field.

Last season, Bridgewater threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns as the then-No. 21 Cardinals upset third-ranked Florida 33-23 in the Sugar Bowl.

The Cards have 23 players on their roster from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Talk about a South Florida pipeline.

If the Canes can pull this one off, it would definitely bolster recruiting efforts.

So, what's your take? Will you travel to Orlando for the game?

 Do you like the matchup?

I definitely like the matchup, and the storylines.

And just in case you didn't know, Miami plays Louisville next season, when the Cards join the ACC as a member of the Atlantic Division. They'll replace Maryland. The game date has not yet been announced.

Miami is allotted 13,500 tickets for the Russell Athletic Bowl. Tickets are priced at $77 and $82 and can be purchased through the UM Ticket Office online at CanesTix.com, in-person at BankUnited Center (M-F, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.) or by phone at 1-800-GO CANES.

As for the O was good, it was supposed to be even better. Not because of false hopes, but because of how well Duke and Morris had played at the end of last season, combined with the addition of Coley.

Yet they still did too many 3 and outs, adding to the strain on the weak defense.

I hope it all gels together in the bowl game, with long drives that ruin the chance for Louisville to strike back on a tired defense, but so far Miami has not been able to do that.

GatorKillerCane you have pretty much summed it up in a nutshell.

Five, I don't do anything because of or in response to Zook the Gator.

I watched the video because "Next Man Up" said it had "no excuses in it!"

No I don't like the Raising Canes videos because they're *obviously* commercials and a PR attempt to bolster and ballyhoo a coach who is being sainted for his exploits off the field instead of production/results on it.

The video are a slap in the face to any and all Canes fans who understand, value and remember our true CULTURE and those videos have titles from his binder of PSY 101. Raising Canes promotes glorification and Tebow-like worship of the coaches and presents the players as wildlings that need this culture infusion to take their games to another level. They're like watch an evangelist ala Jimmy Swaggart conduct his nonsense. They always focus on one player to be the one who has bought in and been *saved* and its been Allen Hurns like 3 times this same season lol!

Shayon Green, Steven Morris--all RS players that have been saved by the Holy Binder.

The onus of responsibility and accountability always falls on the players in the videos. Golden uses "they", "them" and "their" throughout the videos. And states that all leadership must come from the players themselves in the videos.

No other Canes coach was ever provided this PR opportunity to ingratiate him with the fans and boosters. Golden has our football program in his back pocket and I believe that no one person should be bigger than the U. Hence, the shirt & tie--Fear the Tie campaign.

Al Golden is being force fed and sold to Us, but we aren't interested in buying a man. We want a successful football program again--ON THE FIELD OF PLAY.

Raising Canes is a deflection and irrelevant. They should tape them and release the whole catalog AFTER we win a NC--now that--the road to the NC would be a pleasure to witness. They are in essence taping their process of mediocrity and propagating it to the masses and players.

Our Canes have been raised by their parents. They need to be accepted, and cultivated into smart and aggressive football players--thats what their parents signed the LOI for--not for their kids to be *raised* again--like something was wrong with them.

Five, Duke signed with Shannon--how many times do people have to say this fact?

Even Manny supported it with proof in one of his blogs when he compared Golden and Shannon recruits by star rankings.

Duke signed in September 2010, Shannon was fired in October or November of 2010.

al golden:

49-48 after 8 years as a head coach

2011: Rushing

#1 ka'deem carey 1929 yards and 23 TD's
#66 duke johnson 947 yards and 10 TD's

2012: rushing

#1 andre williams 2102 yards and 17 TD's
#59 duke johnson 920 yards and 6 TD's

wake me up when he does something.....


Five I think one of the reasons we have too many 3 n outs, is we don't use TE's effectively, or screens. It's like we pick up big chunks of yds or very few at all. We need bigger pick ups on 1st down, so if it gets to 3rd, it's 3rd n 2, or 3rd n 3. We don't do enough draw plays either, to take pressure off Morris.

It was never about whether they are achieving because one coach or the other.

The point was and is that Shannon didn't leave "empty cupboards" and "garbage players". No one has ever questioned the devlopment of Henderson and Highsmith. Furthermore, Chickillo is a Golden recruit so why would Shannon be blamed for him when he never recruited him, Golden did.

Five, people think U are on a side because u ended your post going at Gallo, but U never go at Zook who is the personification of Golden worship and represents the other extreme of blogging here.

Where are your refutations of his posts that always claim Golden as the best coach in football?

U are selective in whom U attempt to disprove and breakdown. This behavior shows bias.

duke committed on 9-20-2010.....golden wasnt even hire then and COULDN'T talk to duke even if he wanted too....

duke johnson was recruited and committed under randy shannon...end of story.

Gatorkiller/mountaincane, if talk here is so mundane and ill-fated, then why do u insist on participating in it? Is the library that boring?

U can't just use the library for heat, electricity, and internet access like this--its time for U to man up.

Cola, so your off work right now?

Do U mean positive vibes like saying that the list of players I made yesterday all "sucked" and couldn't play despite God Golden thinking otherwise?

Two changes that should be made:

On offense, call the play and run it. Stop with this get set, look at the sideline and get set again. This dilutes intensity. I hate it! It's freaking stupid!

On defense, why are our guys wandering around and not set at the snap? Another example of diluting intensity and stupid coaching. Our defense is already at risk of being run over, and our guys should be ready before the snap.

Also, agree that D'Onofrio is a liability in recruiting, both on the basis of record and personality. We are stuck with him unless he receives an offer. Don't forget that Temple said no thanks.

Get ready for a high scoring bowl game with the same problems on D as the last three years. Morris must have a drive-oriented and consistent game for us to win. And we need some production from the RBs. An effective blitz would help, but I ain't counting on it.

dbc, Cola said we can't talk about what the coaches should or could be doing until the season is over.

even though he just did it himself right here:
Posted by: Cola Cane | December 10, 2013 at 11:48 AM

By the way, great post.

Hilarious that someone who goes by 'football' tries to saw that Michigan State, a team that isn't in a fertile natural recruiting base and went through three consecutive losing years before their staff got there, is a fair comparison to give THE WORST FOOTBALL COACH IN MODERN UM HISTORY just a little more time to turn around something that wasn't broke until he got there in regards to the defense.

It's obvious that the rythmic slapping sounds of football knowledge never got through his skull with how often he shows he 'doesn't know football' through each laughable post.

It's a Ganes thing, they never understand.

HTC,

Oops! Can't agree with Cola on that one.

Enjoy your astute commentary on here, man.

Keep those ideas rolling!

And, no homeoerotic intent, even though we have lived
in the same area! LOL! Agree that the poster who brought this theme up could benefit from some therapy!

Peace...Go Canes....Go recruit Pat Narduzzi for DC!

Zakkee, this, this, just;

http://gifme.me/i/baaa659f8c12ce7a643288c0b7b6f9c7.gif

No Tubs I did NOT say you couldn't talk about coaches, , and you like to put words in peoples mouths I guess. I said that's all YOU do is talk about the coaches and bring up the obvious. Your lists are just that, lists, with a few players that actually turned out to be ballers.

EVERY team in the NATION has a list, so quit trying to make it out like the U's list is some sort of 'special wittle wist' that if we had those players we'd be a better team.

Maybe in some respects we would, but in others not so much, because some of those guys just weren't any good, or got in trouble with the law, or the NCAA, or violated team rules more than once. You're just a 'woulda, shoulda, coulda, guy. AG will be around for a while, not sure about his cohort, but AG will.

What do I think of the 2nd rate bowl game?

1 - The canes were passed over by Duke for the better bowl.

2 - No one cares about the canes this is all about Teddy B

" Russell Athletic Bowl, Dec. 28 (ESPN, 6:45 p.m. ET): No. 18 Louisville (11-1) vs. Miami (9-3)

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will probably play his final college game against his hometown team. Bridgewater, a Miami native, probably didn't receive enough recognition this season because of Louisville's soft schedule. He passed for 3,523 yards with 28 touchdowns and four interceptions. The Cardinals' 38-35 loss to Central Florida on Oct. 18 kept them out of a BCS bowl and out of contention for a national championship, and knocked Bridgewater out of the Heisman Trophy race."

From ESPN, no mention of the canes. Miami is only mentioned as Teddy B's hometown.
Irrelevant just like the past decade.

Yet we're relevant enough for you take the time to post on our blog. Thanks man. Now go clean the locker room up, water boy.

Five, your rant about the tribe mentality as it equates to political discourse is SPOT ON.

We have been a defensive coordinator away from competing for a National Championship the past three years.

In 2010, our defense was loaded. Coach No D made sure we got blasted by mediocre teams.

This bowl game will be embarrassing to watch. I actually considered going to the game, but I would not be able to bear it.

What a shame that after three years, coach Al and his sidekick coach No D are still trying to build a defense.

When will this nightmare stop?

Furthermore, Chickillo is a Golden recruit so why would Shannon be blamed for him when he never recruited him, Golden did.

Five, people think U are on a side because u ended your post going at Gallo, but U never go at Zook who is the personification of Golden worship and represents the other extreme of blogging here.
Posted by: HarrietTubmanCane | December 10, 2013 at 11:52 AM

Wait.
Duke signed with Shannon?
But Chickillo, in the same class, signed with Golden?
They both committed to Randy in September of 2010, but signed with Golden in February 2011. Chickillo actually was committed a week before Johnson.

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2010/09/chickillo-becomes-third-generation-cane.html

http://www.oldsite.insidetheu.com/news/viewnews.php?v=4c92dc4c05310

It appears that because one is a success, and the other has struggled, that one gets the credit to Randy, and the other gets the blame to Golden.

Yes, he is the other extreme, which shows you can see the extremes. And you have even QUOTED me disagreeing with him, so I am not sure why you say I never do so. I don't disagree with Zook as much as Gallo, but it has nothing to do with which SIDE they are on, it has to do with one being pro-Cane, and the other being anti-Cane.

I agree with Calvin, D, You, and others when you say that for the good of the team, changes need to be made. That doesn't mean I am on your "side". And I agree with him that we support the players and coaches that are there, until they are changed. That doesn't mean I am on his "side". It just means that Randy, Jacory, Golden, Morris, Graig, and Eduardo all get my support, as long as they are representing that U on the helmet. Show me a post where Zook rips a current or former player, I will likely disagree with it. Show me a post where Zook rips a current or former coach, I will likely disagree with it. Show me a post where gallo praises a current or former player, I will likely agree with it. Show me a post where gallo praises a current or former coach, I will likely agree with it.

I am a homer fan, and I know it.


Fake comment about how Miami is not mentioned.

"RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL - No. 18 Louisville vs. Miami (FL)
ORLANDO, FL
Dec. 28, 6:45 PM ET

Louisville entered the season a dark horse pick for the BCS National Championship after routing Florida in the Sugar Bowl last season, but a 38-35 loss to UCF on Oct. 18 upended those hopes. Still, Teddy Bridgewater has been exceptional, completing 71 percent of his throws with 28 touchdowns and just four interceptions. The Cardinals will face Miami, which climbed as high as No. 7 in the BCS standings before dropping three in a row to start November."

http://espn.go.com/ncf/overview?date=20131228

For comparison:

"VIZIO BCS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP - No. 1 Florida State vs. No. 2 Auburn
PASADENA, CA
Jan. 6, 8:30 PM ET

Auburn's remarkable ride to Pasadena began by beating Georgia with a Hail Mary, upsetting then-No. 1 ranked Alabama and beating No. 5 Missouri to win the SEC championship. No. 1-ranked Florida State is looking to win its first national title since 1999, while the SEC has claimed the past seven national titles."

Is #1 FSU also being ignored by ESPN just because their summary chose to do the other team first?
"No. 1-ranked Florida State is looking to win its first national title since 1999," FSU did not even get a complete SENTENCE.

wake me up when he does something.....
Posted by: Jim Gallo | December 10, 2013 at 11:47 AM
Do you promise to stay asleep until I wake you?

Then it is a deal!

"Even Manny supported it with proof in one of his blogs when he compared Golden and Shannon recruits by star rankings."

I honestly tried to find that one. Is this the article you were talking about?

http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2013/11/counting-stars-why-al-golden-is-still-very-much-trying-to-rebuild-the-miami-hurricanes-.html

Because in this one, he gives both to Golden. I have no problem giving both to Shannon, BTW, since he initiated contact with both. I am just saying that he doesn't give the successful one to Golden and struggling one to Shannon or vice versa.

Cola Cane, I agree that we don't use the TE and screen and draw enough, but I think that is a reflection of the results we have gotten in the past on those plays. Morris does better on the deep throw to a post pattern or a sideline pattern than he does to a crossing route receiver or TE. And I have not seen him be very deceptive in screen or draw attempts, so defenses are not tricked well on those plays.

Perhaps they will work on that in these practices, since he will NEED to be better at that to do well in the NFL, or even at the CFL level.

dbc, I agree that the set up, call a play, then lean back, and get the new play from the sideline is annoying, even though Miami is not the only team that does it. And how often is it just a check down based on what is now the repeated bluff blitz, as defenses now know opponents will do this. Like the wildcat, the time where this action was effective is long gone.

It's not a 'fake comment,' it's just not a homer's paradise so you found a different quote on a different page that doesn't rank the bowls, just breaks them down on that site.

12. Russell Athletic Bowl, Dec. 28 (ESPN, 6:45 p.m. ET): No. 18 Louisville (11-1) vs. Miami (9-3)

"Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will probably play his final college game against his hometown team.

It's a Ganes thing, you never understand.

duke committed on 9-20-2010.....golden wasnt even hire then and COULDN'T talk to duke even if he wanted too....
duke johnson was recruited and committed under randy shannon...end of story.
Posted by: Jim Gallo | December 10, 2013 at 11:53 AM

Golden could not talk to Duke Johnson on 9-20-2010, even though he was the coach of Temple? Liar.

And if that is the end of the story, then WHY isn't Teddy Bridgewater a Cane? He was recruited and committed under Randy Shannon, too.

Also, I never SIAD he didn't commit or get recruited under Randy. I said he SIGNED under Golden. Learn to read.

If Golden had NOTHING to do with getting Duke, then he had NOTHING to do with losing Teddy. Can't have it both ways....

Nice try. The CLAIM was "From ESPN, no mention of the canes." I disproved that claim.

By that logic, Oregon must also be second rate, since they get even less of a comment on here.

"7. Valero Alamo Bowl, Dec. 30 (ESPN, 6:45 p.m. ET): No. 10 Oregon (10-2) vs. Texas (8-4)

The Longhorns couldn't keep up with Baylor's fast-paced spread attack in a 30-10 loss on Saturday. Now, UT will have to prepare for the Ducks' high-octane offense, which plays just as fast. Will Texas coach Mack Brown still be around to see it? Does he really want to watch what happens?"

By your logic, Oregon should also be offended.

BTW, I looked on both, and didn't see YOUR team on there. What happened? 4-8 happened.

that's your way of trying to parse dukes recruitment......he committed under shannon....golden had nothing to do with duke johnson and yes, golden could not talk to duke on behalf of UM since he wasn't even hired yet.....

teddy bridgewater didn't want to play for al golden...that's why he decommitted just like Matthew Thomas, denver kirkland, jaynard bostwick, keith bryant, alex collins and terrell brooks....

that's the point green pea....

The only way Miami can have a chance to win is use play action to slow the rush and keep defense ends honest, our defense backs need to cheat up a lot clpser than 10 yards, the DB coach just has no clue, Dofornio needs to win or face the truth, he is just out of his league like we been saying, Golden needs to wise up do what is right for school and alumni and fans not his personal friend a favor by keeping dead wood, cant fix it.

In reply to Five Titles | December 10, 2013 at 11:31 AM

I'm going to trust in Golden, again. If he thinks Coach DoNo can get the job done, then so be it. As I see it, if you're lukewarm in support of Golden, you aren't in support of Golden.

By the end of this season, I had given up on the Defense. My brain wouldn't let me get behind them emotionally, only to be disappointed again. If Coach Golden can't get it fixed, SunLife will be empty when next season ends. Can't win championships without a Defense. Won't beat FSU next year either. Coach Golden has my support for another year, but he's playing with fire.

Wasn't even talking to you at first fake gallo, you just butted in, and tried to change the subject, yet again.

So, Teddy didn't want to play for Al Golden, but Golden had nothing to do with Duke Johnson? The hypocrisy of that statement will be too deep for you to understand, so I will break it down to gallo level for you. I know you fake BC graduates are not that bright.

Players A, B, and C are committed to a team on September, 2010.
The team changes coaches in November, 2010.

Two players stay and sign on February 2011, one leaves to another school on February 2011.

Here is fake gallo's logic in the three results.

The first one that stays is all the new coaches' fault because he signed him. Guy has not performed to your mythical high standards, a waste of a scholarship.

The other that stays is the old coach's credit and the new coach had nothing to do with signing him. But if someone tries to credit the new coach for retaiing him, the player actually has done NOTHING for the team the past two years, a waste of a scholarship.

The one that leaves is the new coach's fault because he couldn't sign him. Wasted that chance at a great player for that scholarship.

Your hypocritical claim has NOTHING to do with reality, but it is ONLY which way in EACH different scenario can you attack the current coach.

All teams miss out on recruits. And all teams sign players that turn out to not be as good as hoped. And all teams get players that end up injured. ONLY in your case do you blame each and every situation on the coach though. Extreme side, indeed.

Five, I do everything because of or in response to Zook.

I watched the video because I wanted to post negative comments by making up lies as to the content in the videos that even I, a Gator bonehead, know that they prove Golden is the real deal.

No I don't like the Raising Canes videos because they *obviously* prove what a liar I am along with my other screen names such as Calvina, etc. Those videos rightly so bolster and ballyhoo a coach who is being sainted for his exploits off and on the field, along with his great results.

The videos are a slap in my dumb face and to any and all Canes haters who don't understand, value and CULTURE. Raising Canes promotes the truth and concerning the coaches and presents the players as being loyal and loving Al Golden and proved they need this culture infusion to take their games to another level. They're like watching some of the greatest coaches to ever walk a sideline. They focus on many players Coach Golden has bought in and been *saved*.

Shayon Green, Steven Morris, Allen Hurns, Duke Johnson, well the list goes on and on--all players that have been saved by Al Golden's program.

The onus of responsibility and accountability always falls on the players in the videos, which is great as in the recent past (before Golden) the players never took responsibility and blamed others. Coach Golden, as he should, uses "they", "them" and "their" throughout the videos. And states that leadership must also come from the players themselves in the videos.

No other Canes coach has done more for the program that Al Golden and has ingratiated himself with the fans and boosters. Golden has our football program in his back pocket and deep down I believe that is the way it should be--Fear the Tie!

Raising Canes is very relevant. They should keep taping them and release the whole catalog AFTER we win a NC--now that--the road to the NC would be a pleasure to witness.

Our Canes are being raised by Al Golden and his staff. They need to be accepted, and cultivated into smart and aggressive football players--thats what their parents signed the LOI for--and that is exactly what they are getting.

Five you are playing with context to fit your argument again.

The argument is not whether Golden as "anything' to do with Duke Johnson. u and others have said that he was golden commit and thats not true..period. Who developed him and all the rest of the other filler is besides the initial point.

Golden didn't have anything to do with losing Teddy, who said that. The coach Teddy committed to play for was fired, so he decommitted. Its really not this hard.

U can add Chickillo to the "Shannon empty cupboards"--its just another example of RS players starting and contributing since Golden took over. We all know he was dynamite his freshman year and has regressed under the weight of UTough lol.

Also I've never quoted U disagreeing with him, I quoted U referring to him as a "troll". Thats not one of your detailed refutations/disagreements--thats calling him a name.

Ron Zook and others have ripped RS numerous times blaming him the "death spiral" of the program and other exaggerated bloviations that never garner any refutation on your behalf. But whatever--I don't even care that much--moving on.

"Nice try. The CLAIM was "From ESPN, no mention of the canes." I disproved that claim."

Man you are just one sad delusional homer.
But the quote you selected does mention that Oregon has a high octane offense. The one I posted has absolutely no mention of the sorry canes and the only time Miami is mentioned it is as Teddy B's home town. That is a fact homer. You are irrelevant, deal with it.


No I don't like the Raising Canes videos because they're *obviously* commercials and a PR attempt to bolster and ballyhoo a coach who is being sainted for his exploits off the field instead of production/results on it.

They're like watch an evangelist ala Jimmy Swaggart conduct his nonsense. They always focus on one player to be the one who has bought in and been *saved* and its been Allen Hurns like 3 times this same season lol!

Shayon Green, Steven Morris--all RS players that have been saved by the Holy Binder.
/////////////////////////////////

ROFL, not the "saved" and "Holy binder", you, LOL, it's a slap in the face to all the coaches whoever actually won an actual championship for this moron to be putting the cart before the horse. He tries to come off as if he's some legendary coach with all this non-sesne, "U-tough"(swasey gets it, i wanted to say who TF u talking to like that, NO, swasey got it, as in national championship rings so YOU, goldie, STHU), raising Canes video's, "Trust the process" his favorite number of a beast quote, "six seconds at a time", "eyeofthehurricane" this & that and nothing but silly significant losses to show for it.

But don't look now Harriet TUBMAN, somebody just hired a real mac headcoach that actually won the mac conference while he was there, if we only beat them by 3 points and down to the wire this year, next year, oh boy!

CampbellvilleCane, we will have to just accept disagreeing then. Trust without it being earned is a dangerous thing. Trust but verify is more to my liking.

When this team allowed FSU to romp on them, I was disappointed, but it was expected based on how that team had done in the past.

When this team allowed VT to romp on them, I was disappointed, but it was understood based on how the turnovers and short field wore out the defense.

But, when Miami had a 10 point lead against Duke, in a VERY winnable game, and proceeded to allow 41 points in the last three quarters, including 17 in the deciding fourth when we held our four fingers up, that was the last straw for this system. It has to change, and if it cannot be done at the DC level, then we need to do it at the HC level.

Golden has to think more about his career long term than about his misplaced loyalty. Friends in this business fire one another all the time, but if he is timid about making that move, then will he be ruthless against opponents in the future?

Golden has proven to be a very good recruiter. Even the haters outside of extreme gallo accept that. And he has shown that he can infuse that new talent on the offensive side, like Johnson and Coley.

But on the defensive side, where is our breakout player, the guy that you can say is a difference maker? We may never know, because the talent is boxed in, and expected to play within the plan for so long, that by the time they make a play, it is usually at the spot the offense drew up for the defense to meet them.

Donofrio has earned the criticism he has gotten. I can understand Golden not saying negatives about him during the season, just as Pease was given a free ride by the gatrs, or Cohen with Rutgers, until their season was over, and then the change was made peacefully. But the change needs to be made for the good of the team's recruiting, playing, and attendance future.

"Nice try. The CLAIM was "From ESPN, no mention of the canes." I disproved that claim."

Man you are just one sad delusional homer.

Because we KNOW that the guy that posts as "ACC sucks and the canes can't compete" is a gatr troll, while the guy that recently started posting as " Defense keeps getting worse as the experience deployed in it gets greater" is a loyal, lifelong Canes fan.

But yeah, you NEVER change IDs, do you.... LOL! caught!

"Don't rise" (up)...but instead "fall back" (retreat)

Can U get anymore unaggressive than this?

The player's instincts and natural abilities are being purposely muted and extinguished to make way for the coaches "training".

Golden is unabashed in his reconditioning of our once aggressive and smart football team. WR Hurns said, "We just have to accept culture more..."

In other words, its our (players) fault if we lose and its due exclusively to some players not trusting their "training." Golden said as much when he tried to explain how they lost the FSU game.

U can witness this unaggressive philosophy in the defensive game-planning and scheme devised by two defensive coaches--Golden and D'No.

Our kid are being emotionally and mentally castrated. The defeatist and retreat approach schematically has led to them being beaten down physically as well--on the field. U lose confidence when the scheme compromises your talent advantage against 2 and 1 star TEs and slot WRs from Wake, Duke, VT, UVA and Pitt who keep beating U every play.

But yeah, you NEVER change IDs, do you.... LOL! caught!

My first post was sent before I finished writing my long and true name. it was cut off after "ACC sucks ab", I hit enter instead of space bar you dummy.
The guy who posts under "Defense....blah, blah" is not me.
Why do keep playing detective? And who cares?
My original post is factual, as all my posts are.
In summary ESPN never mentions the sorry canes when describing the No name bowl you play in. It's all about Teddy B. Everyone knows that why must you remain blind, dumb and delusional?

Passed over by Duke for the better bowl
Russel Athletic Second rate Bowl has no mention of the canes all the talk is about Teddy
Unranked even though 9 - 3, the best record in the sorry career of Alverage Golden gets no respect. Everyone knows it is an inflated record and the team is much worse than the record shows.
Irrelevant after all these years

28 TOUCHDOWNS and ONLY 4 INT'S be mighty impressive. Yeah, yeah Teddy's Cardinal squad played a LAME ARSE schedule and what not. So what!!

FWIW.... Miami, Florida's defense AIN'T EXACTLY Fillet Mignon. If U Know What I Mean. hUh

Matter of fact, both Goldie nd' Marky Mark's defense is your TYPICAL, bottom-feeder defensive unit from say... the Mountain West Conference or W.A.C. or even M.A.C.!! Nothing more, nothing less.

So my main man Bridgewater will be facing just ANOTHER weak defense from the above-mentioned conferences. dUh

Raising canes is a cool way for recruits and fans to get a look at the program. I would think most football programs have something similar and we all know the NFL has thier series. That psycho-babble and analysis you all are doing is scary. For real. I just think it sheds a light on the program and that's all. It's a non-subject. Either watch or don't watch it. Who cares?

If THE DUKE was in uniform for the former Champs Bowl, I'd have all the bloody CONFIDENCE in China, that M-Y Hurricane's would defeat Louisville!! But THE DUKE won't be balling for Miami, Florida come 12/28/13. hUh

Therefore, the percentages indicate Teddy and his offensive cohorts will TEAR UP Goldie nd' Marky Mark's SUSPECT defensive schemes and ploys and what not.

"Who cares?"

U care, U suggested that I and others should watch it. Also U are responding because U feel some sort of ownership over it.

They videos are the psycho babble: "Stockdale Paradox", "Hugo's Story", "The Road Less Traveled", "The Edipus Effect", and "Nepotism 101".

How about "Stockholm Syndrome"--thats a good one for U Next Man.

Yeah, yeah I understand both Golden and D'Onofrio will have two weeks-plus to prepare for Louisville's SUSPECT offense and what not.

But what do you think the Cardinal offensive coaching staff will be doing the next two weeks-+. dUh

Bloody SALVITATING and going all EUPHORIC while dissecting Goldie nd' Marky Mark's defensive packages and what not. Seriously LOL

D, all Louisville has to do is catch the ball.

If UVA would have caught the ball (namely TE #83), that game would have been a nail biter.

I can CLEARLY see both Louisville's O-coordinator and wide-out coach saying... Do you believe this dog doo-doo. A Cane DE covering RB/WR's and what not.

Again, y'all Goldie and Marky SYCOPHANTS. It's all there on FILM and the game tape DON'T lie!

Matter of fact, the Cardinal offensive coaching staff has TWO season's of Cane defensive game film to work with. That's if any major college football bUbba considers the Hurricanes PLAYING the TYPICAL Miami defense of yesteryears.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Exactly H.T.B. Heck, the kid (83#) dropped at least THREE easy catches. If not more.

And, IF Virginia would have inserted that freshmen QB at the start of the second quarter, that particular ball game would have come down to the last two minutes or so. hUh

Yeah, yeah Marky Mark had the Canes in a " prevent defense " the ENTIRE FOURTH QUARTER and what not.
