Whoop there it is!

SOUP

A search on "swiss cheese holes" revealed that gassy bacteria are behind all that holey cheese.

In order to make cheese, you need the help of bacteria. Starter cultures containing bacteria are added to milk, where they create lactic acid, essential for producing cheese. Various types of bacteria can be used to make cheese, and some cheeses require several different bacteria to give them a particular flavor.

Propionibacter shermani is one of the three types of bacteria used to make Swiss cheese, and it's responsible for the cheese's distinctive holes. Once P. shermani is added to the cheese mixture and warmed, bubbles of carbon dioxide form. These bubbles become holes in the final product. Cheesemakers can control the size of the holes by changing the acidity, temperature, and curing time of the mixture. Incidentally, those holes are technically called "eyes," and the proper Swiss name for the cheese is Emmentaler (also spelled Emmental or Emmenthaler).

Swiss cheese has been in the news recently because the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) created new guidelines that regulate the hole size of domestically produced Swiss cheese. The USDA reduced the standard size of the holes by half because new cheese-slicing machinery got caught on larger holes. The Swiss weren't pleased by the revised guidelines and insist that Emmentaler must have large holes. Considering how iconic those eyes are, we think they have a good point.

No gloat in me guys...I was pacing with Rashad at the game watch party...praying to every football god under the sun, moon , and stars, hoping I was completely wrong!!!!!!

The Swiss Cheese Paradox:

1 - Swiss cheese has holes.
2 - More Swiss cheese, more holes.
3 - The more holes there are, less cheese.
4 - Therefore, more cheese is less cheese.

Texascane

Last time I checked, the defense gave up 18 points...if they didn't have to play against our offense (14 for the other guys) while they weren't even on the field...we win.

I could care less about how many yards we gave up...Scoring Defense is the only stat that matters...

SOUP

Canechic...I was just teasing. U were right about the MD game, Miami lost. I am thinking 8-4 now instead of 9-3?

And anyway, a little gloating never hurt anyone, right?

Gloat on sista!

Texascane

...and that is why they sell Swiss cheese by weight...not volume...

i wasnt happy with the soft coverage of our corners...that bubble screen will get you minimum 7yds each time...there was a good adjustment to it middle of the 2nd qtr...

having ojomo, forston, spence, and benjamin back for the osu game will be huje...

i thought morris did a really good job protecting the ball and making good decisions, minus the delay of game penalties and the int...

no excuses though...we had the opportunity to win and we gave them the ball...

i have to give props to LM6 and his football IQ...i was pissed initially that he didnt slam that guy that got the int...but it was the right decision to let him score, to give our offense the opportunity to get the ball back...

i just hope this loss does not stop all the fans from coming out to the OSU game...we need to show up and support our team

LOL!!!

Maybe we should play Telemaque on offense and he just stays back and plays free safety on every play...

VA Cane

There IT is right there.

Aerosmith: "It's that same old story, same old song and dance, my friend..."

O and D line play was not up to par, expected it on D...but the O line was not consistent. Both have to be.

Song was penalties, Dance was the TOs 2 fumble and a pick was 17 points...that hurts ....again......JMO

SOUP

Sling: TE Ayles, DL Porter, DL Robinson and maybe AJ II?

Nick's observation....hit the damn QB, what are you waiting for....he slows up and stays in bounds and you don't even hit him?? Make him think twice about running again?? I observed too much letting up on defense and stopping...this is not high school any more guys.

But I am very happy with Special Teams.

AJ II?
aldarius johnson? isnt he suspended indefinitely

solarcane

Just got back from the building supply
All Georgia, GT,Clemson fans work there.
First let me say most of them said they think Miami could beat them with a full squad.
Their combined thoughts.

You guys did really well without your best defensive players, you still don't have a real leader at Qb.
You were fortunate Maryland tried to score from the redzone and not on bombs from your 40 or you would have lost by 3 more tds.

pbcfrcane13

Miller needs to be touching the ball close to 25 times a game. I like James but he is no Miller and they need to stop splitting the carries.

eYeofthestorm

Thank God we weren't playing Oaklahoma again or we might have given up 70 pts. Talent, yes we have more than Mary, but at least they made us work to get the ball down the field, we on the other hand, looked like a Pop Warner team on defense. Swiss Cheese is putting it mildly, how about a sieve, that looked like a breach in a dam. Yes we were under manned on the defensive front and when you get no pressure on the Qb, who can't throw for 300 yds. The offense from the 2 min. mark left in the 2ND Qt, looked lost and confused and even though we did score, the stupid penalties, were just inexcusable. Maryland has an average team at best and we made them look like a top 5 team. We never threw on first down, to change things up and what amazes me is that we never hit a receiver in stride, so he can run after the catch. We make the passing game look like a science project.
On the bright side, the special teams looked good, we didn't have any drops, and the tackling was pretty good, Lamar Miller looked good as long as they didn't run the same play over and over. and I don't care how good your offensive line is, when they jam the box with 7 or 8 guys it's going to be tough to run. The play calling to me got to be pretty predictable and we still can't cover a T.E. Would those those guys we lost have made a difference, maybe against the run but our corners suk with a capital "T". An average team like Maryland punted one time, one flipping time the whole night, this could end up being a nightmare season. I knew eventually the D.Tackle position was going to kill us because we recruit that position like it doesn't exist anymore and once again in case you haven't checked we only have one recruit at that position right now and that's if he doesn't back out.

SlingBlade

id say that analysis is spot on...

SlingBlade

eyeofthestorm

we were without 3 DT's in this game..we have 7 on the team and only one is a senior...2 of the ones that played were freshmen and the other is a transfer...so that means 3 out of the 4 that played last night played in their first game...

we will be alot better next week with porter robinson and forston back at the DT position...

Dadesfynest83

We lost cuz Jarett Lee wasn't playing...right Matt ? LMAO...

Brevardcane

Did finnie play?

eYeofthestorm

Slingblade,
You're right we have 7 d.t's and we had to play freshman last night, 2 of which, Pierre and Grimble were playing D.E. in high school last year, so really only Forston, Regis, Robinson, Porter and Smith have the size to play the position and are true D. Tackles, Pierre and Grimble maybe weigh 275 and don't have the strength at this point in their career to play the positon with any consistancy. We have to recruit that position way better than we have the last several years and beside Forston those other 4 are average at best. Smith would be better in a 3 - 4 defense at nose tackle, since he's like 345.

Lee

My first post, long time reader, but it's a fresh season so why not start.

Regardless of the suspensions, it was just more of the past 5 years or so. Penalties, turnovers, confusion, missed assignements, soft corners and poor pass coverage on the tight ends. These we seem to excell at.

Anyone else of merit would have put up 50+ last night, most would have been over 30+ easily. Unless Maryland finishes in the top 25 this year we were lucky the game was as close as it was.

My guess, unless it turns around big time for OSU it's a 6-6 year at best.

Texascane

#3 Oregon had four turnovers and 12 penalties against LSU...guess they should just give up the season as well...

canechic

Texas sadly lots of bloggers were saying that about Oregon on Sunday too. Oh and TCU too.

Both still have good teams, filling valuable positions and valuable leadership.

I think the canes can rebound but I know this whole mental rebuilding will take time.

Let's face it, it is very difficult to change bad habits. Bad habits have infested this team for years and it will take some time to kill this bad bad mental bug. But it does look better, so they just need to keep progressing.

Dadesfynest83

^^^ that was freakin spot on ^^^

The worst part of all this is its a conf. game! Im over this labor day crap! If we do play labor day make it an out of conferance game!!! AH this hurts so much more that it counst against us in the ACC

CGNC

Coach sure looked different stammering and at a loss for words immediately after them game, didn't he?

Posted by: solarcane | September 06, 2011 at 08:47 AM

I noticed that too Solar, he looked like he had just pulled an allnighter! I think with the media hype of the NCAA and losing players and being on national TV on Labor Day - by the end of the game he was toast.

TLuv

CGNC-I'm sure standing in a monsoon wearing a suit and tie didn't help either

CGNC

VA, all I am saying is that this is not 2001 Miami team where the backups were maybe as good as the starters. Maryland considers themselves lucky that they got us first, with all the suspended players out.

In addition, we played a spread offense that is difficult to defend even with all of your experienced players. You must be able to tackle in space and get a lot of players to the ball. I felt the defense played extremely well when the field was shortened (red zone) and Maryland had to play smash mouth...they could not get it done. We would have beaten Friedgen's team from last year.

Now you know why I was scared to death that Leach would get the Maryland job...his offense would have put up 40 last night.

All in all...the only disappointment that I had was that we did not use the tight ends and the backs more out of the backfield. That may be a function of Morris more than Fisch...

Posted by: Texascane | September 06, 2011 at 10:05 AM

THIS THIS THIS!!!!!

CGNC

TLuv - yeah, I think he was just shellshocked from everything. Saying you are ready for a big stage and then actually being on it are two different things. Now he has been on it, he will be ok. Kind of like when I started horseshowing, Regionals used to rock me, I treated it differently and didn't do as well. The only way to get through that is to continue to do it and deal with it.

Barring some biological warfare, we will never see this mish-mosh of a defense again. If the team continues to improve, that's what I want to see...the rest will follow.

Six, somehow I deleted your email addy: send me an email at mw32779@windstream.net

pbcfrcane13

Look all the players ou change everything...add TB to he Off changes the way the dcord needs to play his defense. I has to make sure to have somebody over the top which takes a guy out of the box which helps the running game. Also having the lack of depth on the D side I'm sure Jedd was told to make sure he tries to keep the ball away from the MD O and not take to many chances.

Morris had to passes that change the game....the one to I think it was Hurns right on a post over the middle and over throw him then the one to Miller had him down the sideline, but he had to get rid of it ball early because of the pressure. So look we lost and yes the players being out did change the game is what it is.

For the people saying that it shouldn't matter really....You have DB one who didnt play due to injury last year and was recruited by WF and then Mcgee who couldnt beat out DVD or Hill.....thats not good lol. the at one point did we have Paul...Perryman playing LB at the sametime with Chick on the DLine....lol never good when you have 3fr playing at the sametime. AH just venting sorry if this doesnt make sense just getting it all out! lol

Ohio_Cane

I will say, a bright spot in my eyes yesterday is that there is way more passion, energy, and fight in this team than last yr. Last yr's team would've tanked by half. This team fought all the way to the end.

Sept 17th will be the showcase of whether the missing starters last night hurt or not.

They're saying the suspended players not being there hurt the team, but are giving a little credit to Maryland for playing hard. They're actually talking more about their uniforms than the game lol

pbcfrcane13

Btw I like the way Morris handled the post game interview If he can grow into making some smarted plays I think this kid can be a great leader you can see it starting to come out of him.

Longtimecane

a bright spot last night was the special teams. Good kickoff coverage kept them starting at the 20 yard line most of the night.

Our returns avg'd closer to the 35. A plus 15yds there.

Downside, we had alot of returns.......

dg

To me, we roll with Morris-he is the future(and maybe the present). J12 has had plenty of opportunities. I just don't know what to say about Byrd. I really expected him to demand the ball. Even on the sideline he was just there. Allen Hurns wants it real bad--this kid will be special barring injury.

360Cane

Doesn't Golden coach special teams? I'm just saying...

-----------------------------------------

Agree 100%. This kid can flat out play. That catch over the shoulder down to the 10 or so made me jump off the couch. It wasn't ESPN top play kinda catch, but difficult enough that I was so glad someone on Miami didn't drop it. I fully expected a few drops last night that were caught. Liked what I saw there.

pbcfrcane13

I was really upset last night and this am, but I re watched the game and I starting to get pumped for the OSU game now. I think this team with all our players back can be really good!

BEAT OSU!!!!! Lol maybe I'm just trying to convince myself

360Cane

Morris needs to demand the huddle a little more. He was screaming for the ball on one of those delays, but the center was talking to the guard. He has to control that since he's the QB.

We need to schedule powder-puffs our first 2-3 games just like everyone else. So by the time conference play begins, you have all the kinks worked out. Bama having 5 TOs against Kent State would not work out as a 48-7 win in the SEC. But I bet they get that fixed by the time they play their first conference game.

This also helps when you have to play second string, and helps you deal with suspensions because you don't need your studs against FAU or Louisiana-Monroe.

We need to get on that ASAP. Forget about the Labor Day TV contract. You make more money making it to BCSes and winning conferences NOT playing on Labor Day.

Sure, UGA played BSU and LSU played Oregon...but those are out of conference and really does not affect them win or lose. Because we all know, you run that SEC table, you're in regardless what you did OOC.

dg

360Cane...IN WITH NEW---Gotta be the motto.

I know these kids are not pros but watching on the sidelines, Spence was missed. He appears to be the leader and Ray-Ray is the hype guy. I'm sure all the adversity had an effect. SM17 was getting in guy's faces but it's like they are searching for an identity or what's ok--reminds me when Dorsey went to UW and grew up in a lose. Man I hope that is it!

pbcfrcane13

Lets not forget this was only Morris what 5th start so in those terms he's still a freshamn when it comes to starts. In a road game opener prime time he even said it in his interview that his voice his horse so he was screaming probably just to get the call in. So I like what I see and hear from Morris so far adn would like to see him play from here on out.

Five Hurricanes registered eight tackles on the night - Mike Williams, Vaughn Telemaque, JoJo Nicolas, Brandon McGee and Ramon Buchanan.

Freshmen Denzel Perryman and Anthony Chickillo each recorded multiple tackles in their first career games. Perryman finished with three tackles and Chickillo with two.

Seventeen players made their first appearance as Hurricanes Monday night: Thurston Armbrister, Dalton Botts, Thomas Finnie, Andrew Swasey, Gionni Paul, David Thompson, Jake Wieclaw, Mike Williams, Clive Walford, Denzel Perryman, Anthony Chickillo, Phillip Dorsett, Ben Bruneau, Olsen Pierre, Jalen Grimble, Clive Walford and Darius Smith.

Five players made their first career starts: TE Clive Walford, DE Marcus Robinson, DT Darius Smith, MLB Jimmy Gaines and CB Mike Williams.

Sophomore wide receiver Allen Hurns recorded his first career reception, a 16-yard strike from Stephen Morris in the opening quarter.

Redshirt sophomore running back Lamar Miller rushed for a game-high 119 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. Miller's touchdown run of 41 yards gave the Canes their first lead of the night in the second quarter, 14-13.

Allen Hurns and Tommy Streeter each hauled in a team-high tying four passes. Hurns finished with 69 yards receiving, while Streeter finished the game with a career-high 55 yards .

Running back Mike James scored the first touchdown of the Golden Era on a one-yard rush up the middle in the second quarter.

Vaughn Telemaque intercepted the third pass of his career, picking off Danny O'Brien in the back of the end zone and stopping a potential Maryland scoring drive late in the first quarter.

Junior kicker Jake Wieclaw connected on his first career field goal attempt from 30 yards out to put the Canes out in front, 24-23, in the fourth quarter.

And the problem with that is? LMAO :-)

VA Cane

Nice thought TX, it was a lot different then with those guys. Yes some guys were pressed into playing, and you got to get the feet wet sometime, might as well be now. They did not do horrible all things considered. Without the penalties and TOs, we win the game. The lines were a problem, got to get to work on that. Leach might have put 50 up on that coverage, Whew!!!

SOUP

“I get judged on how the team performs and I didn’t get the team to perform the way it needs to perform in terms of penalties and turnovers. It’s something we have set out to fix for a long period of time. We have gone enormous stretches without any turnovers in the spring and in the summer. And then to come out and do that was disappoitning. The penalties, we’ve got to get fixed, starting with me and the coaches.”

Al Golden

SOUP

Last year in 2010 Miami ranked 117 and 119 in the NCAA in penalties and turnovers.

In their first game of 2011 the Canes had 10 penalties and 4 turnovers. They got one takeway on VT's INT for a -3 turnover marging.

That ranks them at 103 in the NCAA for both penalties and turnovers after one game.

Only a few teams like Notre Dame (-5) and Alabama (-4) rank below UM in turnover margin after one game.

Only a few teams like and Oregon (12) and Baylor (11) had more penalties than UM in their season openers.

Jer

That quote from Al feels extremely different from the quotes Randy would give last year. Al didn't blame receivers not protecting the ball and blamed himself first and then later in the interview he gave Morris the ultimate responsibility for the INT. Holding the players accountable for their actions, on and off the field, will change the attitudes in the long run.

Texascane

I was pleased to see that, other than the chop block, no penalties on the O-Line...I can't remember any.

When was the last time that happened...? welcome back, Art.

2002nemo

Where can I buy (lots of) PROZAC? I'm really depressed about last night's game.

I hate to be such a downer but I'm fearful that the worst is yet to come (OSU, VT, FSU, USF, NCAA, etc).

HURRICANE football is no more (or so it seems). No one fears us any more . . . and with good reason. At best we're downgraded to a tropical DEPRESSION.

So, where can I get some PROZAC? I really need it. (Perhaps, Coach Golden too).

SOUP

There is still a LOT to play for:

Miami still has games against #5 FSU, #11 VT, #15 OSU and #22 USF this season.

After Miami beats all four of those ranked teams and wins all of their remaining games they will be ranked in the top 10 by season's end.

I'm jus sayin...

PAY ATTENTION NEW UM AD, HERE'S HOW U START A SEASON AGAINST A POWDER PUFF LIKE CHUCKY SOUTHERN:

A UCF team seemingly on a mission for more success this season following a historic 2010 opened the 2011 campaign Saturday night in flawless fashion.

Riding a wave of success from last year's championship-filled season and a stellar summer, UCF got three rushing touchdowns from standout quarterback Jeff Godfrey, two from Latavius Murray, a triumphant return from Brynn Harvey and delivered a dominant defensive effort in a 62-0 rout of Charleston Southern at Bright House Networks Stadium.

A crowd of 39,752 saw the Knights (1-0) run for 316 yards, grind out 25 first downs and gain 560 total yards in the season-opener. UCF scored on its first five possessions and built a commanding 35-0 bulge by halftime. UCF's eight rushing touchdowns is a new school record, breaking the previous record set in 2007 against Memphis.

Of course, Ron Cherry wasn't calling the game...

OR MAYBE SCHEDULE NORTH TEXAS LIKE FIU?

FIU got the season started off on the right foot by beating North Texas, 41-16, Thursday night at Alfonso Field at FIU Stadium. Behind a relentless running game that racked up 208 yards and swarming defense, the Panthers outgained the Mean Green 401 to 301.

Reigning Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and Heisman hopeful, T.Y. Hilton amassed 283 all-purpose yards, the second-best output of his storied career, including 60 on a touchdown pass from Wes Carroll. The senior quarterback finished the contest completing 16-of-22 passes for 193 yards and the one score.

On the ground, Darriet Perry led the way with 94 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries, and sophomore Kedrick Rhodes added 77 yards and another pair of scores on 16 attempts.

Defensively, Winston Fraser led all players with 11 tackles, eight of them unassisted and one for loss. Gregory Hickman was a force on the defensive line, sacking the quarterback twice and forcing a fumble.

On the opening kickoff, Hilton got started right away, returning the kick 62 yards to the North Texas 29-yard line. A few plays later, Rhodes got the Panthers on the board with a nine-yard touchdown run.

Sarasota 'cane

I must say I'm over the Labor Day Marquee Matchup role we've had to play for the last several years. Shapiro aside, most teams have a few suspensions to serve on opening day for various reasons.
I'm not saying we would have won last night with all of our suspended players in the lineup, but it certainly looks like we could have.
My family is coming out in force to watch the OSU game. It looks like we may have close to 15 attending! I look forward to seeing some of you at the various tailgate parties throughout the parking lot!!
More will be revealed...

Go 'canes!

Exactly SOUP. Time for us to get with the times and play cupcakes our first two games. It's called PRESEASON.

SOUP

WURD ON DA SKREETZ IZ...

1. Futchy, plain and simple was horrible. They took advantage all game long. The D played better when Denzel was in his place. Coach D was all over his azz for being out of place, along with McGee and Williams.

2. For the O, Ford was a screw up just about anytime he was on the field, missed blocks wrong routes.

3. Mo missed guys that were wide open, while he had some decent plays overall it was poor. He is still clueless to what a checkdown is. Thats the clear reason on why Jacory would of started that game. He had a chance to checkdown to Miller with a LB 10 yards from him and never gave it a thought. Miller beats that LB and its 6 because nobody could catch him. Hell he even had Clive wide open down the field, looked at him then after 5 seconds was sacked. That could of been a huge gain, maybe 6 if the pass was in stride.

Game watch party was pretty full last night. I met some really nice girls who had just graduated from the U, a Lake Mary Grad and Seminole Grad. They were so excited to go to their first game watch party as an alumni! I loved their enthusiasm. Both Biology majors trying to become doctors at UM medical school. Rashad is doing the no orange/green so as not to jinx. He really despises Chase Ford and not a big Williams fan either, LOL!!!!

Oh my heavans FSU is going to kill CSouthern, UCF scored 62 points....that is just ridiculous!!!!

Da U N Houston

WURD ON DA SKREETZ IZ.. Great observations.

1. I have come to the realization that Futch is a special teams guy, know who you are and perfect your craft son. I see how he got beat for the MLB spot. Imagine him in the middle...YIKES.

2. Ford - I thought was a stretch when we got him PLEASE stop playing him. Clive, Asante.....give those guys a chance to get a rythm. Ford is NOT the answer and can he PLEASE take off that neck roll.

3. I wish we could put Mo's arm on Jacory... J12 just scares me when the ball leaves his hands.... But you have to admit, Mo moves well in the pocket and looks down field when scrambling. Maybe if they give him the job and for him to lose he will be more confident.

4. Miller's stats seem to agree with his comment, gie 25 touches and you'll get 150+ yrds rushing. He needs to carry if atleast 20 times and game, and give 10-12 to Smiley.

5. Our wr's can catch, just get them the ball. I hope this game gives Street the confidence he's been lacking.

oops heavens

The Brahma Bull

I am really proud of those young men last night...they fought trough adversity and continued to stay together as a team. We win together and we lose together. We all share blame in victory and in defeat.

The Brahma Bull

Futch is who I thought he was....I don't know what it will take for you guys to believe he is just not that good!!!!!!

I agree...he was sucking wind with his hands on his hips and all that during the first drive, hitting the wrong gaps in blitz situations. Just an all out awful game.

CGNC

LOL Skreetz - you are so right. Every time I saw Chase Ford I thought WHY?

orange 'n green in the vein

Steven Morris cost this team the game by not improving on what was his weakness as a QB last year. Mike James and his fumble set the team up for the KO, Morris provided the roll of quarters for the coup de grace on the fumble, baited pick six, and did he throw another pick on the last play? I was out the door by the time he threw it into quadruple coverage with that arm his supporters won't shut up about like they did similarly with Turf Face, another guy with a big arm, no check-downs, and a penchant for making slow reads that led to sacks like the one that took UM from nine yards to Wieclaw's range to 15. Bench him where he belongs with the clipboard and try to win as much as you can (Al Golden 0-5 for his career off a bye week) because the QB next year is waiting out a transfer year for this one and seasoning a guy who doesn't learn from his mistakes is a futile effort.

I'm really hoping the returning DL's from suspensions make D'Onofrio's horrible defense calls look a lot better by upgrading the pass rush, otherwise, no bowl this year and Golden will be on the hot seat a year early as this job went through it's rebuilding phase under a much better recruiter with less coaching experience already so the cupboard being empty isn't the problem.

CGNC

OGV is it what's in the cupboard that is the issue? If you bench him and sit him with the clipboard where will Spencer Whipple sit? ;-D

UMike

I hate that we lost, but Im realistic to know we had A LOT of talented players sitting out that would of made a huge difference. You cant tell that if we had Spence, Vernon, Ojomo, Ray Ray and Fortson we would of gave up that many yards and points. I do believe that the first pass of the game and the overthrown pass to Miller in the second to last series were throws J12 would have put on the money for an additional 14 points..BUT..the questions i would he have thrown 2 picks in between? We finally have a RB that can hit the second level and not get caught from behind, big change and big plus. All the distractions, all the suspensions and we go on the room in bad weather in a conference game and still have a chance to win. For NOW, I will take that. I think OSU will be a different ballgame. jmo

I really think Jacory starts against OSU. He has a much better pocket presence than Morris and I watched SM several times last night move when he didn't have to and then always move to the outside when he had space if he just stepped up. several of thise sacks, including the fumble, he walked right into the defender.

Sarasota 'cane

The problem with starting Jacory is the fact that he will have the same opening day jitters that all day 1 QB's have. It's like having to play opening day all over again!
If Jacory is the guy then so be it, but if he starts "chucking" the ball up for grabs than I'm all for putting Morris back in sooner rather than later!

Go 'canes!

orange 'n green in the vein

CGNC, Whipple isn't allowed to sit, he'll be standing next to Fisch signaling plays in. Morris will be looking at the play diagrams that are signaled to learn the rest of the offense in the unfortunate event of another J12 knockout.

As for the cupboard contents, I think the guy who took Edsall's job here at UM said we had enough talent to win thus implying the cupboard has been properly stocked over the last four years by someone else, sometime after telling the fans not to reduce the expectations for 2011. But if they don't listen to him the first time, why would they listen the second?
