1987 national champions!

trianglecane

I hope my CANES play better as a team. Outside of Kaaya there really are no superstars to depend on. Everyone must step up.

I like the switch to the 4-3. It's just this coaching staff.. We will see. I say that if everything goes MIAMI's way they could win all their games. But, to win over and over again takes a champion's mentality and in the last decade Miami has not showed the consistent mental toughness to be champions. BUT I AM HOPEING!!! Where there is no hope the people perish.

GO CANES!!

58 days until Season Opener. Go Canes. Let's have a great bounce back year.

SinisterCane

Morning Spacer?

Did Golden officially state we're now a 4-3 defense?

Terrance Sullivan

I care about our offense not being 65th in the country and special teams not being a 100th in the country. Care more about us winning more games than a 4-3 or 3-4. Smdh.

Lur-ker

I don't think that anyone has 100% committed to a 4-3. My impression is that will play more 4-3 but possibly still be hybrid in some situations. But Terrance said I care more about playing better defense.

Also, I think it's more certain that we're going to more of a 1 gap scheme on the line.

Lur-ker

* But like Terrance said, I care more about playing better defense

Is this really a SMDH moment cause I asked a question in response to Trianglecane.

Says the guy who coined the term..."They will convert!!!".

The Dude

I don't think Mark and Al are bringing in an extra DT to play in a 4-3. Nonetheless switching to a 1 gap system should increase the speed in which the DL is getting after the ball. It's going to help the secondary by forcing the QB to make a throw earlier. Chad Thomas, AQM and McCord is an excellent trio of pressure to bring. Hopefully it will result in RBs being knocked off their lines also, I wish we had a thumper like Denzel to clean up spills but I like what Grace can do also.

Terrance Sullivan

I am just saying as a whole the team needs to drastically improve in all 3 phases especially Special Teams in which we were abysmal, offense was inconsistent and turnover prone. And the Defense still is inconsistent as well and far from dominant. I was not trying to attack anyone at all. Hope it didn't come off that way.

Terrance Sullivan

Exactly UMike. Still traumatised by the GT debacle in Atlanta last October.

Terrance Sullivan

Respect.

miamicane

When we being our defense up and force the offense to play the speed game is when we get control of the game. Example was the Duke game.

The Dude

^^^ it's all about using your talent advantage.

Sinistercane

Golden knew there wasn't an excuse in universe to lose to Duke twice so he threw the whole damm kitchen sink at em' and we dominated them in all phases. Golden need to treat ever game as if job depends on it

CaneRock

Took my son to get a 2nd MRI on His shoulder, and they injected a dye into His labrum to see if their was any scar tissue or tears.

My question, why didn't they do that during first time?

Terrance Sullivan

Don't know Rock? Great question tho. Hope your son has a full recovery.

Yes! To borrow a cliche from that Jessie. Keep hope alive Hurricane fandom.

Oh. One more thing. Mikey is one of the FEW ' voices of reason ' in the Canespace. And I absolutely enjoy his refreshing reasonable takes on Miami, Florida Hurricane football matters and what not.

TheeMackJones

WHEN that Herbie Cornhusker team WAS dominating college football back in the mid-nineties. Their astute defensive coordinator once said HE'D NEVER employ a ' two-gap ' defensive alignment ( Akin to the beloved Golden and Marky Mark. ). Mr. Charles Bride said that a ONE GAP was the best remedy for his NASTY, MEAN ARSE defensive tackles and what not. And the man has THREE national championship rings to back up his use of the ' 4-3 ' ONE-GAP defensive front alignment.

TheeMackJones

I'll never FORGIVE the dynamic duo from Penn. St. for CHIT-CANNING the trademark Miami, Florida Hurricane based ' 4-3. '

It's like moi NEVER forgiving La Guardia for getting rid of BURLESQUE in NYC. LMFAO

Jsy

Going straight for an mri isn't the most cost effective way it's better to start with cheaper and more easily done tests/procedures and then work up from there.

I'm a pain management physician by the way and I deal with this stuff all the time. Also mri in kids is sometimes not very well tolerated with the kid needing anesthesia which isn't without risks

Lur-ker

CR, how old is your son and in what activity does he use his shoulder? Is it his throwing shoulder? Is he a pitcher, a quarterback, or plays organized basketball?

Apparently, some Cane upper-class GOON has too much time on his hands. I mean. Who give a crap about Roll Tide Roll and FSU meeting in the A-T-L. Chit, the game AIN'T even going to be played for another decade and what not. Literally SM-peanut-H.

LOL

I don't have any confidence in a CARPETBAGGER whom flushes a TRADEMARK defense down the putrid toilet. Chit, a host of other major college football programs converted to the ' 4-3 '
( Enter that Herbie Cornhusker program, for example.
). Heck, even that ONION HEAD wasn't STUPID enough to change the defense.

TheeMackJones

How's that ancient adage go. If it ain't broken. Then don't fix it. Or mess with it and what not.

The Dude

I believe the old adage is: If it ain't broke, don't fix it and what not. Golden seems to subscribe to another old adage: If at first you don't succeed, try, try again and what not.

CaneRock

Lurker...He's 16, and He wrestles & plays football (QB). It started acting up on em' last year, but we didn't get an MRI till after States for wrestling. That MRI came back negative, but it flared up on Him again at a wrestling tourney last week...hence the 2nd doctor's visit today.

Go Canes

2017 equals a decade.

Ok.

May the family of Bryan Sydney Pata have abundant peace, love and soothing warmth from the Creator of the universe. during these heart-soul wretching days of unfathomable tragedy.

theemackjones (albuquerque, NM )

I DON'T have to prove my Miami, Florida Hurricane football partisanship to no one! Especially go canes and his kindred.

Taken from one of several obituaries for the late Bryan Sydney Pata.

herbieibis

The 4-3 was broken here and that's because of our sad sack DT's. Shannon rarely blitzed and didn't need to because the line play was good at getting to the QB. We haven't had a great DT since Wilfork.

The Dude

^^^^ Allen Bailey was a monster, but was never used right. I always thought Campbell should have played more DT on passing downs.

CaneRock


We haven't had a great DT since Wilfork.

Posted by: herbieibis | July 09, 2015 at 06:56 PM

I think Norton's gonna be a good one. That kid saved what would've been an otherwise average recruiting class.

TonyCane

For those of you more knowledgable about schemes, is the fact that we used a 3-4 more because of lack of Defensive line numbers during Goldens first four years? It seems in year five that we have finally assembled depth at the position that posits a shift to a 4-3?

The Dude

Well TC. Golden isn't switching to a 3-4, he's implementing a 1 gap system, so the numbers at DT or NT are irrelevant.

The Dude

I would assume though, that playing in a 1 gap system will make a 4 man front more common. Also, Miami has used 4 man fronts in every year and game that Golden has been here. The issue has been the DL having to defend 2 gaps rather than attack 1 gap. The hope is with the DL attacking 1 gap, pressure will get to the QB or RB much faster, forcing mistakes and long down situations.

The Dude

Posted by: The Dude | July 09, 2015 at 07:41 PM

Meant 4-3 sorry.

CR - thanks for the info. Seriously though I hope they get it right, although sometimes it's hard to nail down the actual cause, because you're not seeing in live time whatever is causing or aggravating the injury . It could be an overuse injury, assuming that it's his throwing arm/shoulder, assuming he's been throwing a lot? Or it could've been trauma to during wrestling. But of course these are just wild guesses on my part.

My daughter is 16 also and she's all county in her sport. She's had her share of injuries. When she started playing sports in middle school and getting good, I always warned her that injuries are part of the deal. But it was still heartbreaking when she was a freshman and couldn't finish the year because of a bursa problem in her hip. Fortunately, that resolved itself but she couldn't do anything for three months other than a walk. Very frustrating for her.

The Dude

And no one ever said what's up with Juwon Young. Where's he at on the depth chart?

TD, I don't know what's up with Juwon Young. Heard good things about em' last Spring/Summer, but not so much this year. I was always concerned about Him growing outta position, ala Shayon Green.

RIP Kenny Snake Stabler gone at 69.....what a player leader Raider. He was one of a kind, certainly a personality. He will be missed by Raiser fans.

VA Cane

Brad is quite a young man.....way better than any QB since KD11.....who was surrounded by greats....Kaaya had Duke....who was good....and a couple lineman....and Perryman.....the rest just very average football players nothing to write home about. What would our record have been without him? Promise you 3-9.....and old AlPa and NoDPa would be in the bread lines. I like his poise and his attitude....very fine young man....a bright spot at UM...and I bet he has the class and sense and brains to stay 4 years and get his degree. He will be something good in life....great young man. Hope the rest of these players can rally around him...help him....and the OL needs to protect him.

6-7 ain't saving no season, either...and it's certainly no insurance for avoiding the "bread lines".

herbieibis

Canerock,

Had both shoulders scoped, Bi-cep tendon, labrum, rotator, bone spur, cyst. Takes about 5 good months of hard azz work. Had 40 exercises I did 3 times a day. It helped that I liked to work out and made it easier for me to come back. Go get plenty of bands, dog biscuit weights and a pully, plus a stick and have them on hand. Most of the exercises can be done at home. Good luck.

trianglecane

Thanks everyone for clearing up the whole 4-3 thing. I assumed, and you know what happens when you assume..

I hope to see four line men and three backers.. but, not in goal line situations.. that's usually not good...

ALL phases of CANEZ the needs improvement..

Special Team - play more starter if you have too

Offense - Play calling and Oline need to put their big boy pants on

Defense - statistically the CANEZ improved in YPG but still give up huge plays and sacks, INT's and forced fumbles/recoveries rank near the bottom of the pack

Posted by: CaneRock | July 09, 2015 at 12:18 PM

Three weeks ago I had my shoulder operated on for the second time in less than a year. Full thickness tear of the rotator cuff and bicep tendon. Rehabbing a shoulder absolutely sucks. Hopefully your kid won't have to go thru it... Has the Dr referred him to a physical therapist? A good PT can work wonders.

CaneRock

Getting back to my son's shoulder...Lurker,jsy,Terrance,herbieibi,Epi...Thank You for your concerns & feedback.

Epi...they haven't referred Him to a PT yet. The docs said that His joints were sound...they're gonna inject him with a dye on the next visit, to see if there's any scar tissue or tears.

That Clemson game hopefully should be a classic and possibly a sell out. Nebraska game definitely a sel out. Clemson has next best chance with GT being a good chance if both our Canes and Jackets are battling for Coastal and Top 20 teams. VT is always intriguing. Virginia is Homecoming.

CR,
I had a severe shoukder separation my soph year in college, along with bad knee injury that ended my college career. I was so depressed at 19 knowing I eould never play again. I still have a knot as I never had corrective surgery....but it healed up never hurts and I am normal....minus the knot. Just listen to the doc, and if you do not feel depth and compassion in the, making, get another opinion. A doc in the sports field should be great help. I have been with a number of my boys to have injuries examined, and have a very good relationship with a local practice specializing in sports injuries.
I hope things work out, he is young and I am sure he will be fine.
