Nice articles...diggin' the five Q's!

solarcane

but I think a 7-5 record is certainly possible.

see soup?

solarcane

Coaching wise, I would say Jedd Fisch. Consistency at the coordinator position is important, especially for a new regime still looking to form an identity.

I think our season comes down to "Bubble Screens".

If we CAN stop the "Bubble Screen", I say 7-5 or 8-4.

If we CAN'T stop the "BUBBLE SCREEN", I say 6-6 or 5-7.

I thought we'd stop getting victimized by the "Bubble Screen" when Patrick Nix left...NOPES!

Solar,

The debate started by me sticking my two cents in on LB's comment lol

CategoryIV_in_Pittsburgh

Swiss cheese defense?

The Dude

Great post Laquinton!

The Dude

Athletically speaking, Sean was the best talent to ever play the game.

Hassan

Sean Taylor is perhaps the only guy i ever saw play that could be an ALL-PRO at perhaps 4/5 different positions.

Both S positions, Any LB position. WR, RB, FB, Rush End.

Laquinton

I keep watchin that video Sean wS amazing. Its crazy that some compared ray ray to him.. Noway close. Ive been a fan since 04. Seeing Sean,DJ,Vilma,k2 in the league got me looking around for info and I was on allcanes for awhile..then canesport..then I saw procanes..and then I saw this site and I love it

CaneRock - I am going to disagree. Our problems have been 1) stopping the TE, period and 2) stopping the running QB (See Kansas State and Virginia Tech).

LB

"The debate started by me sticking my two cents in on LB's comment lol"

I am known to stir up some stuff. At least we haven't long to wait for Al Golden's newest recipe.

Chestnut Chicken
- 5 tablespoons of Michael James
- A pinch of Duke Johnson
- 20 cloves of crushed Perryman
- Add 17 dashes of Mr. Morris's Artful Surgery
- Throw in the bird for 3.5 hours, and poof!

- Dessert: Bostonian Cremed Pie

Review: This dish is excellent, and best served on Saturday afternoons. This is also an amendment of the previous Chestnut Chicken, which made its consumers quite ill. This recipe is sure to be an absolute delight.

DELICIOUS!

Ohio_Cane

LMAO, LB!!

True dat. But I used the "Bubble Screen" to illustrate a bigger point, meaning, our CBs were SOFT AS HELL! last season. Now I didn't expect them to be Antrel Rolle, but c'mon now...

LQ...we are glad U are here!

86Cane

FROM HEATHER AT ESPN:

Miami 17, Boston College 14: The Eagles will give it everything they’ve got in a hard-fought game, but they’ll come up short late in the fourth quarter. Miami’s speed will be too much for a defense that will sorely miss tackling machine Luke Kuechly.

Clemson 34, Auburn 31: This has a high-scoring, last-play-of-the-game feel to it, and I’m willing to give Clemson the benefit of the doubt. Losing Sammy Watkins is going to hurt, yes, but the Tigers have enough surrounding talent that they’ll be able to compensate for his loss with a group effort.

NC State 28, Tennessee 24: The Volunteers desperately need this victory, and it should be another down-to-the-wire game, but the Wolfpack will have the edge up front, and quarterback Mike Glennon will make enough plays down the stretch to be the difference.

Florida International 34, Duke 31: The Blue Devils beat FIU on the road last year, but Duke’s injuries have accumulated over the past two months and will be a factor on both sides of the ball.

Virginia Tech 31, Georgia Tech 20: Did I mention this game is in Lane Stadium? Virginia Tech will come out fired up by its home-field advantage and force a fumble or a turnover that gives the Hokies the momentum early. The Hokies have questions on offense, yes, but it’s going to be Bud Foster’s defense that is the difference in this game.

Miami coach Al Golden on opening with conference opponent Boston College: “The time to complain about the schedule is when they're making the schedule, not when they release it.”

Alumni Stadium Chestnut Hill, MA

Passing clouds. Mild. 76 °F, Wind: 14 mph/SE

Ohio_Cane

SMD - Injury Report w only 2 players. DT Porter (appendectomy) & LB Kirby (leg) out. No one else listed

Ohio_Cane

Adam Schefter - "Dolphins team plane backed into another plane, damaging the wing of the Dolphins' plane. The entire team - about 70 players, plus the coaches and support staff - was forced to de-plane and wait for another ride. Classic Hard Knocks."

LOL

Ohio_Cane

Good to see Lamar Miller got his first NFL touchdown last night. 17 carries for 60 yards

Ohio_Cane

Herbstreit - "I think if they (UM) gets to 5 or 6 wins, that'd be a lot to ask."

Shut it, Herbie!

j.w.

Scary that I agree with nearly all of Heather's predictions (I picked Duke to hold off FIU). And her margin of victory.

Ohio_Cane

Thurston or EJ starting at Sam LB Saturday.

Ohio_Cane

Finnie, Kacy Rodgers, and McGee have worked at nickel corner and may play some there Saturday.

LB

"Herbstreit - "I think if they (UM) gets to 5 or 6 wins, that'd be a lot to ask."

Shut it, Herbie!"

I guess he's gone a little crazy with the loss of Erin Andrews. Not getting some to do odd things to a guy. It happens.

Herbstreit - "I think if they (UM) gets to 5 or 6 wins, that'd be a lot to ask."

This was on Joe Rose this morning, just FYI

http://wqam.com/dj/joe-rose

86Cane

Ohio...just listened to the Golden interviews from yesterday and today. I can't tell if he is either worried about the team or hiding something really good like a good poker player ready to call someone's bluff?

Ohio_Cane

86, I honestly think it's a little bit of both.

Cane4eva

This Sunday @SaveUMFootball has a new podcast on Hurricane Alley at ufrsports.

http://ufrsports.com/review/index.php

Give it a listen. There will be lots of great information and the unique inside info you can only get from reliable PapaCane!

86Cane

UM rankings in NCAA stats from 2011:

Passing Offense: 60th

Rushing Offense: 67th

Passing Defense: 26th

Rushing Defense: 63rd

LB

Wow. I heard that Herbstreit interview. I'm flabbergasted.

As much as I criticize the team, I equally give it to the media.

Joe Rose is such a crack sniffer, and went beyond the usual five questions and the "help me out here's." As Herbstreit was berating UM's chances this year, Rose is chuckling and giggling and outright agreeing with him.

In previous interviews, he was being "the good old boy" with Golden, as Al touted the maturity and toughness of the team.

It's going beyond the ex-dumb jock trying to buddy up with people and look cool. He's friends with whoever is on air. That also goes against the rabid fanbase and their demands for consistent information.

Isn't that why Canespace is so successful? Because the CEO gives excellent, verified information. No sugarcoats? Where 12%'ers and realists have a place to enjoy themselves?

Rose is downright duplicitous. His kissing up to Randy Shannon made me ill. Now he's biting at two different scenarios here. If you want to suck face with Herbstreit, then at least admit such to Golden. If you want to give props to UM, then do it to Kirk. Choose whose butt you choose to lick, Mr. Rose.

Somebody get that idiot off the air, and UM away from that station.

OPEN MESSAGE TO COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT:

Go to Sid. At least you'll have some honesty, and some entertainment as well. Teach us about the program (as is done through Raising Canes). You'll generate revenue and sway public opinion. The athletic department will be powerful and people will buy tickets. Guaranteed. You're doing an excellent job so far, but you need to cut ties with WQAM... especially Joe Rose. His idiocy does you no favors, and we gain no insight.

The Canes deserve better. Tell Freet. Please. I'm dead serious.

Posted by: LB | August 30, 2012 at 08:17 AM

LB,

I am wanting to serve this dish on Saturday, but the local market is out of fresh out of Denzel Perryman and I only have 15 cloves left. They have recommended I substitute the last 5 cloves with a healthy dose of Anthony Chickillo and a teaspoon of Tracy Howard. Your thoughts?

The Dude

5 wins puts Golden on a very hot seat. 6 wins and there will be grubling. 7 wins and the grumbling will be ignored. 8 wins most will be happy. 9 and above in this year and fans might build a statue, lol.

UpNorthCane

Well they better start building the Statue and a Stadium, which they should name The Golden Hurricane Stadium, because we are going 12-0!!!!!!!!!!!!!

86Cane

http://espn.go.com/blog/acc/post/_/id/43018/top-25-player-countdown-no-2-2

ESPN's top 25 in the ACC and not s SINGLE UM player made the list. OH MY!

86Cane

The Dude...agree with your season record summary above. Seven PLUS wins in 2012 and I think we coast into 2013 with MUCHO confidence and a touch of swagger.

Montreal-Cane

Posted by: LB | August 30, 2012 at 01:56 PM
Agree. WQAM sucks!

UMike

I honestly don't see how 7 games is a stretch, Duke, BC, USF, Bethune, GT, UNC, NC State should all be wins imo..and I think we pull out at least one from kState, VT, FSU and ND

86Cane

UMike...NCST is getting LOTS of love from the media going into the season. I guess we need to be careful with that one?

Lots of teams gets LOTS of love..check FSU last year lol

UMike

One thing I THINK Golden brings to UM or changes is that we beat teams we should beat..last year we were close in all our losses except the BC game when Harris finally imploded..the year before that we lost ugly..so I think those close games will be wins..Golden has weeded out the guys that dont want to work, or they left the team, either way this group is full of either old guys that have bought into Golden's plan (see UTough results) or are young and hungry and all about Golden's plan. Look at what Fisch did with Harris (outside of the BC game), imagine what is in store for Morris? IDK if we win 9 or 10 games, but I think we will do better than the "experts" think.

LB

"I am wanting to serve this dish on Saturday, but the local market is out of fresh out of Denzel Perryman and I only have 15 cloves left. They have recommended I substitute the last 5 cloves with a healthy dose of Anthony Chickillo and a teaspoon of Tracy Howard. Your thoughts?"

Hmmm... perhaps also a teaspoon of Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood, and I think you have your base.

A good call. Sometimes the markets run out of cloves before you can get to them.

Posted by: Ohio_Cane | August 30, 2012 at 12:57 PM

Relax dudes this is a good sign, Herbstreit is ALWAYS wrong when it comes to the Canes!!!

Go Canes!!!

CoCane

True ^^^

solarcane

they should name The Golden Hurricane Stadium

Thats the nickname of The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes stadium (Skelly Field at H.A. Chapman Stadium) known to locals as The Golden Hurricanes stadium.

UMike

Unlike quite a few of his Hurricanes teammates, Luther Robinson doesn’t go by a nickname.

But if the 6-3, 290-pound junior defensive tackle did, he says with a smile, “pepperoni” might be fitting.

“I’m a pizza man,” said Robinson, who used to frequently order a large pepperoni pie from Papa John’s and eat it all by himself in his dorm room.

“It’s been a minute. I had to slow down because it was slowing me down.”

Posted by: NativeCane | August 30, 2012 at 04:12 PM

Thinking exactly the same NativeCane. The Herbster gives us tons of LUV...we suk. This is the best thing to happen to UM all year!

No talking head can give us love this year because our players haven't done anything. How can anyone not intimately familiar with the Canes predict what this group will do? There's nothing to base any predictions on.

As Canes' fans we need to let it roll. I like the role of the underdog and believe we're going to surprise a lot of people this fall. Have faith Legion! And, enjoy watching a bunch of youngsters turn into a TEAM. I'm really pumped to get the season going!

UMike

The University of Miami injury report is out, and as Al Golden has been saying the past few days, the Hurricanes have made it out of fall camp relatively healthy.

In the first MIami ACC Injury Report just handed out to the media, there are no surprises.

Linebacker Raphael Kirby ("lower extremity'' -- that would be leg) and defensive tackle Curtis Porter ("upper extremity'' -- that would be appendectomy) are the only Canes listed as out for the game.

Actually, they're the only Hurricanes listed on the report. No one is listed as doubtful and no one is listed as probable, and no one is listed under the "Surgeries/Out for the Season'' category. Golden said he is hopeful Kirby returns by midseason.

Tsully76

I agree with the Dude on our teams win total and what it means for Golden and our perspective on the team status.

Canezitis

Why y'all hatin on herbie? He's actually one of the few analysts that I like because he's actually objective(even if he is a suckeye). If you look at this current team without U goggles, you'd say the same thing,"who is that" at just about every position. And until the NCAA gives us our punishment, there will be this stupid cloud hanging over our heads whether we as fans want to believe or not

Tsully76

I will be happy with 8-4 and ACC Coastal division champions. Anything else is icing on the cake.

NativeCane

Posted by: Canezitis | August 30, 2012 at 05:13 PM

Zitis, Herb is actually one of the few Bucknuts I like, he likes the Canes and has given much love in the past but... he's always wrong about the U! Haha

Go Canes!!!

For the second consecutive season, the Miami Hurricanes will open on the road at an Atlantic Coast Conference rival. Year
two of the Al Golden era begins Saturday at Boston College (3:35 p.m. EDT, ABC/ESPN2).

• In the first season under Golden, the Hurricanes fi nished 6-6 overall with a 3-5 ACC record.
• Miami is 56-29-1 all-time in season openers, winning three of its last four.
• Saturday will mark the 29th series meeting with Miami holding a 23-5 advantage over Boston College.
• Boston College and Miami are meeting in the season opener for only the second time. In 1993, then-No. 4 Miami defeated
then-No. 20 Boston College 23-7 in Chestnut Hill.
• Miami is making its first trip to Chestnut Hill since 2007 — a 28-14 Hurricanes loss.
• Miami is 7-3 against Boston College in Chestnut Hill; the last Hurricanes win at Boston College was an 18-7 triumph in 2001
(Miami was ranked No. 1 in the nation).
• Junior QB Stephen Morris was appointed the starting signal-caller following the Miami Hurricanes’ first fall scrimmage in
August. Morris has five career starts under his belt, posting a 2-3 record as a starter.
• Nearly of 70 of Miami’s 2012 roster hails from Florida (67 players), including 21 that hail from Miami-Dade County.
• Gone from Miami’s program are 25 seniors from the class of 2011 — all of which graduated. The senior class was also
honored with the Jack Harding Team Most Outstanding Player Award. The 2011 senior class included All-ACC performers
Sean Spence (LB) and Tyler Horn (OL) as well as record-setting QB Jacory Harris.
