Posted this on last blog, but wanted you guys to know how good my guys are....its all them they put in the work....I have the easy job....lead them to the water....they have drank deeply this year.

Nice win for our guys...Beat Duke.

I did not see the game as yesterday we played in the Super Bowl. It was cold and windy but sunny. I did something I have never done...guess I am getting soft as I age. My guys wanted to come out to music!!! They told me to pick something from my collection....well they are great kids, and so I did. We came out to "Black to Comm" by MC5, the great 60s hard rockers from Detroit....one of my favs. It is an intense song....and I guess it worked cause they came out like a rocket. My tailback took the KO 60 yards....and 2nd play my QB chucked a long one for a TD. Perfect pass!!! We shut them down, and went on a 12 play drive....all runs. We got it back after they failed to convert on 4th from our 15. We then went 85 yards all runs. They ran spread and passed....we crushed with our ground game. We picked 3 off, and caused numerous fumbles, recovered 3....my guys lay some serious wood. I lined up in a loose 4/4 with man outside all day...and I blitzed like hell out of the 46...we had to have had 10 sacks....and so many brutal hits...we bent them to our will; we came to win Jack, not just show up. Everybody played a lot....it was grand. I threw 3 or 4 passes all day. we had no TOs, 2 penalties, got 6 TOs, rushed for 247 yards....Champions again 42-7. I am soft....they picked me up...yea I cried cause I love these guys. They may be the best I ever coached....they were so good this year...very special to me. At the beginning of this year, our 5 year record was 63-2. Tack 12 more on...75-2....5 of last 6 Super Bowls....what great great players my guys are....not because of me, because they play as a team, we have no stars. These guys love winning together. This was a great day for us....and for UM we all win!!!!

Didn't get a chance to see the game but knew if ever a bone was thrown to us it was yesterday. Good to see the offense move the ball. Whoopee, got that magical 6 wins, now lets get the bowl ban over with and just look forward to how many ships those bums dock us.
Does anyone know how to stop the spread offense or does anyone beside LSU, N. Dame & Bama play consistent defense and even they have a hard time stopping the spread.
K. ST & Oregon both choked last night, so now The Irish of all teams are going to be #1 and they suk. Barkley got hurt yesterday, so it could be a cake walk to ship for them.

Stanford did a pretty good job yesterday stopping that Oregon offense..

OGV ONCE AGAIN I CALL FOR THE BLOWOUT AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENS. MAYBE I SHOULD BE THE PREGAME TRADITION FOR MIAMI. LIKE HOW CLEMSON RUBS THE ROCK MAYBE THE CHEERLEADERS COULD RUB ME????

orange 'n green in the vein

Stanford did a great job controlling the clock and pressuring the QB into making bad throws and getting off rhythm last night. Overcoming the number of turnovers they had last night on the road isn't easy unless you find a way to compensate with possession time and timely negative plays made by your defense.

Last night was probably one of the best 60 minutes of football UM has played under Golden in every phase of the game but I think a lot of that in the defensive portion was a function of just how bad USF was offensively once the backup to the backup was in at QB for them. They did generate good front seven pressure but Jedd had the WR corps carving the secondary up despite that which has been USF's problem most of the year. Nice to have something hanging in the balance for UM in the final game for the first time since Brock and crew lost the ACC title in UM's first year in the league, even if it requires an NCAA intervention to artificially apply those stakes thanks to the UNC scandal.

Congrats to you and your team this year VAC, sounds like you guys weren't playing around once again.

roachcane77

Wow, lots-o-stats 86... Nice article.

Super job once again VA Cane, sounds like you've got some great kids there who buy in to your genius. Congrats.

Let's hope our Canes stay on the high level we saw yesterday. USF's offense WAS inept though... (SOOO many dropped passes.)

I would LOVE to see some more hits like we had on D yesterday. DP52 was ROCKIN! (Still looks like his ankle is bothering him though.)

Some nice catches by our receivers too!

I was hoping for 40 points yesterday and they delivered!

• In the second quarter, freshman Rayshawn Jenkins recorded his first-career interception. Jenkins led all Canes with seven tackles, including four solo.

Indeed. Its clear to me that Jenkins is a real baller, and the only thing that seems to hold him back is lack of playing time.

Jenkins, Bush, TH3, Gunter, etc., will be secondary that can play very, very aggressive in the upcoming years. I like what I see from the young Canes in terms of talent and potential. We will see where it goes.

We are ther Panthers and we play in Richmond VA

Please don't ask if Coach Golden is interested in any other jobs - Tennessee, Arkansas or possibly Boston College. He's here to stay.

Although I have not been happy with the Canes defense this season, but since DNo will be back next year it forces me to look for any positive signs. Miami defense leads the ACC in yards allowed, but the Canes in 7th in points allowed, second in turnovers forced and tied for the ACC lead in turnover margin.

A win next week and another year under U-tough and a more agressive scheme will give us a much better defense.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart said Derek Dooley improved Tennessee football during his three-year tenure as the Volunteers' coach — just not enough to keep the job.

Dooley, 44, was fired Sunday after posting a 15-21 record that lacked wins over ranked opponents and Southeastern Conference foes. Dooley was 4-19 in SEC games and 0-15 against Top 25 teams. Tennessee (4-7, 0-7 SEC) is 1-14 in the SEC over the last two years.

Hart said Sunday that Dooley improved the team despite inheriting a tough situation, but he noted that "you can't ignore the results at the end of the day."

Tennessee's 41-18 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday guarantees the Vols their third consecutive losing season.

Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will coach the Vols' season finale.

BigWindyCane1

Duke Johnson is first in the ACC in kickoff returns, third in all-purpose ypg, 5th in TDs scored, third in the in rushing and needs only 68 yards to break Clinton Portis' freshman record.

If the Canes win the Coastal and Duke plays like Duke next week, he should be ACC freshman of the year and probably make the Freshman All-American team. If the Canes win the coastal, several of his teammates should join him on the All ACC teams.

The ACC Coastal Division may be down this year, but a Division championship is a division championship, and I will celebrate because its something the Canes never achieved after a decade in the ACC. Its something Al Golden can build upon and get more of his players to buy in.

This could provide great momentum for recruiting and for building the program for next year and the seasons to come.

No the big papers do not report the data, and the smaller local ones are so busy being political and covering HS football that we do not fit in spacewise.

On a different note, the HS team I coached DBs with got beat Friday night. We were undefeated, rated #1, but we did not stop the run. I went man to man on the WOs, strong safety on TE....we did a great job, but our overall D scheme...which I would like to coach, but I am new...was not so hot. Straight 4-3, no blitz, no aggressive sets...could not stop run. The 46 is designed to do that, in an aggressive way. We did a great job as DBs, my guys were really good. Cannot win em all huh?

Is anyone on here proud of how #77 did not go in the tank, he dealt with a lot this offseason started the year not playing and then off the bench. Quietly has gone about his business and is mauling people out there. Another year of UTough and the NFL is going to be salivating next year.

One year in U-tough, and Seantrel could be a high first round pick. There are no senior starters on the OL. If Seantrel and Linder stay, the OL could be really dominant and deep next year.

laquinton

Seantrel is gone this year.. He is having a great season though. Got his mind and body right and then got Flowers off his back.

Not so fast my friend-- let's see how they do with this pass happy dukie offense this week.

TonyCane

It's great for Sentreal if he can go and become a high draft choice. But in general, we have to do a better job overall in keeping our most talented juniors (and sophmores!). I'm not sure if any other team in I-A football has had as many early departures as the Canes in the last ten years.

BigWindyCane1

Latest on bowl ban.

http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/11/18/3103801/no-bowl-ban-decision-yet-from.html

Canes need to just play this game as if it was their bowl game, and blow Duke out. Regardless of whether the Canes are allowed to play in the ACC CG, a victory would make the Canes 7-5 and represent a big step forward from a 6-6, senior-laden team last year. A big victory on the road to close out the regular season, previous first-ever victories of GT and VT in the same season AND a first-ever Coastal Division championship will send a message to the conference that the Canes are to be reckoned with in the upcoming years.

CaneRock

SOUP, do you still hear from Six, if so, is everything OK with Him?

It's odd that He didn't at least chime in being that it was USF and all...

I feel ya' World, I'm just sayin' that we haven't had a ball-hawk back there in a while the likes of Jenkins. RJ and Bush are gonna make a helluva Safety combo.

Had a great time at the BUC today as our Lady Canes fought valiantly but in the end lost to Tennessee Lady Vols 67-59. Then strolled through Campus and just enjoyed the vibe. It was a pretty good crowd too. Let's go Canes.

cg,
I agree with you about the neon carrot unis, hard to tell if we were paying tribute to Syracuse or the department of corrections.

I like how the hated TarHeels wear their updated helmets from time to time, and as super hero funky as Oregon's unis go their helmets are badazz for sure.

Maybe we let everything is The U rest for a few seasons and hook up some alternate helmets now and then too.

The Miami Hurricanes’ regular-season finale Nov. 24 at Duke will be televised live at 12:30 p.m. ET on the ACC Network, the Atlantic Coast Conference office announced Sunday.

Miami (6-5, 4-3 ACC) is currently tied for second in the ACC Coastal Division, one-half game behind division leader Georgia Tech (6-5, 5-3 ACC). The Hurricanes closed out their home schedule Saturday with a convincing 40-9 rout of USF on Senior Day at Sun Life Stadium.

Junior QB Stephen Morris threw for 413 yards and 3 TD, while three Canes receivers tallied 100-yard games – Phillip Dorsett (12 rec., 111 yds), Herb Waters (4 rec., 130 yds) and Clive Walford (3 rec., 135 yds).

Panamacitycane

maybe if miami is taking a bowl ban they will wait till later in the week to do it? I know last year they announced it and I think the players came out against Boston College with the Screw it attitude and thats why they got beat...I have no idea but just a hunch

raizecane

Terrance, Soup, OGV, Canezilla.....great hanging out with you knuckleheads yesterday.

My celebration went till around 3:00 AM in Hialeah then headed to Parkland around 4 AM. Left at 9 this morning and made it to orlando by 12:30 PM......me tired, lol.

nemo2002

Maybe it's all about the $.

Perhaps, UM is awaiting a determination from the ACC about a financial penalty that may be imposed against the U, if we self-impose another post season bowl ban and the conference ends the season with too few "bowl eligible" teams to meet all the ACC's post season bowl commitments this year. An affected bowl can always find a non-ACC team to fill the vacancy, but the ACC will lose revenue and also may have to pay damages. ACC schools, who share equally in post season bowl revenue, may want UM to suffer the loss of revenue and pay any damages incurred by the conference due to UM's unilateral decision to not play in any post season games again this year.

UM may be awaiting clarification from the ACC on this financial issue, before making a final decision to self-impose a post season bowl game (and forfeit participation in the ACC CG) or not.

By Michael Casagrande Sun Sentinel

CORAL GABLES — Now it its 20th month, the investigation into Miami's past recruiting practices already reaches historic range.

The decision the school faces in the coming week qualifies too. Self-impose a postseason ban for a second straight year or potentially play for a spot in the Orange Bowl? The question remains Sunday evening.

NCAA compliance expert John Infante told the Sun Sentinel he can't remember any program self-imposing a postseason ban in consecutive years. That's probably a by-product of how long this investigation is taking

"I think there's a good chance this buys them a bit of leniency, mostly in the form of the [NCAA Committee on Infractions] not adding anymore years," said Infante, a former compliance official and creator of the popular Bylaw Blog.

Miami opted out of the 2011 postseason a day after gaining eligibility. The Hurricanes reached that six-win level on Saturday, but no decision is expected Sunday. It's a call that UM president Donna Shalala and legal counsel will make. Coach Al Golden said he's purposely left out of that discussion.

There may be lessons from past cases.

The most recent high-profile investigation into illegal recruiting resulted in a two-year postseason ban for USC (2010 and 2011). The program also lost 10 scholarships for three seasons ending in 2013-14. It did not preemptively impose any postseason bans.

Ohio State is now the front-and-center cautionary tale when it comes to self-imposing a bowl ban. It decided against the plan after a 6-6 season last fall, but was hit with a one-year penalty by the NCAA before this season. Now 11-0, the Buckeyes would be in position to play for a national title, but are ineligible for the postseason.

North Carolina could’ve also benefited from banning itself from the 2011 postseason.

The Tar Heels are tied atop the Coastal Division with a seat in the title game unresolved, but the school chose to play in the Independence Bowl last year. Missouri won 41-24 and the NCAA banned the program from postseason play in 2012.

With 20 starters returning and a bulk of the Hurricanes in their first or second seasons, the future could be bright. It's just a matter of moving beyond the past that's taking longer than the school would like.

Terrance Sullivan

Raizecane it was good hanging with you too man.
