7 Rohan Marley toughest greatest Hurricane of all time!!!! Damn we looked good!

1mg of Epi

in overtime 30-24. GT also beat them 45-42 in 2008. That 2008 Georgia Tech team pasted us for over 400 yards rushing I seem to recall. Other than that though, Georgia won the games. Most were relatively close though.

I went up to GT for that 2008 game. It was a miserable experience.

VA Cane

GC you are spot on....we are trending up....it has been so long you got to love it! This is a breath of fresh air...took a while but its great!!!!
Windy he is so tough....he was stunted by the scheme of AlPa and NoDPa...all these kids were.
I am so glad to get rid of that Yankee Pervert connection.....worst hire ever...AlPa is a JOKE!!!
Chad brought it today...as did all our kids. I was up close; I have seen every VT-UM game from the UM sidelines...every one....have not seen this kind of intensity in years....these kids want it.....but give our staff and CMR credit...they know what to do. You got to love it.

I think a lot of the bickering on here has been due to all of our frustrations from 2003 til now...Lost Years....BUT we are starting to flex some....game by game...very proud of our kids....and of or staff....and our REAL fans..GO CANES!!!!

TonyCane

If they were going to let Paul go they would have done it after going 3-9 last year. But I think teams in the ACC know coaching changes are expensive nowadays, and this is an elite conference. They don't expect to go 12-0 in this conference. The gimmick offense is something a college of engineering kind of enjoys, I think.

Also, the problems for GT are usually on the defensive side of the ball. For all of the talent in Georgia and the Atlanta area, they just don't seem to contend for the elite athletes when Georgia, FSU, Clemson, and others come calling.

Personally, I like the basic of the offense other than the chop blocks which should be illegal. It is interesting to watch. It is a chess battle at times. I think their fans feel the same way.

Two things...

1) Ga Tech was a good team in 2014. That bought Johnson some time despite the 2015 regression

2) Some people have to know that they are in a pickle. Ga Tech is now completely built for a triple option attack. They can bring in Nick Saban next year and that does not change the fact that they simply do not have the personnel to make effective any switch to a normal passing attack. At best, the next coach would be forced to play an array of freshmen. It's no coincidence that Ga Tech has generally trended downward after the skill players that Gailey had on offense cycled out of the program.

VA Cane

Cant Wait Catholics VS Convicts....I love us being Convicts...bring all those alumni who played the damn Catholics... on the sidelines.......raising hell kicking them Catholic ASSES!!!!!!!

VA Cane

TC...get us some stats regarding the rush and pass we have has vs GT...know you got it....you genius you.....THE MAN!!!!!!!

Sarasota 'cane

Exactly VA! Winning will cure what ails us, and anyone predisposed to nonsense will slither away! And let's be honest while we're at it, it appears we've solved our coaching dilemma, but it will take at least a recruiting class or two before we're "back".

Sarasota 'cane

Unreal catch in the Luckeye game!

Go,GoCanes!

USC imploding yet again.

Trojans look like they're following our history by making another lazy, uninspired hire and paying the price for it.

VA Cane

For sure Sarasota....but there is no doubt we are really moving forward. I wish you all could see the confidence of Coley, Richards, Walton Yerby....BK...Berrios....what a catch ....we ran balls deep in the end zone out...BALLS!!!!! Our D was popping all day.....I wanted a couple late hits.....you know me Tatumizers!!!!! I was kind of emotional...I was so proud of our kids...they were tough...those kids at LB were great....Chadf really sowed up. Nice to conn3ect with Chad, richards....that Hurricane pride...hey I am a 57 year old fan...I was so proud to relate with our kids!!!!
CMR, Staff, kids.....were fantastic...you got to love them...we will be back!!!!

AfriCane

whos the other wide receiver that's a freshman? the one that qualified late.

Since 2008:

GA Tech passing yards allowed:
2008: 047 yards
2009: 133 yards
2010: 101 yards
2011: 077 yards
2012: 132 yards
2013: 066 yards
2014: 053 yards
2015: 059 yards

GA Tech rushing yards allowed:
2008: 472 yards
2009: 095 yards
2010: 308 yards
2011: 134 yards
2012: 287 yards
2013: 335 yards
2014: 318 yards
2015: 314 yards

Shannon's defense after the 2008 introduction to the Triple Option (in a team largely populated by freshmen) was much more effective against GA Tech than Golden's.

VA Cane

I think RS knew Miami D well...he was a good DC...Golden...I mean AlPa...and NoDPa horrible....I think Manny will have us ready......TC you are so spot on...thanks for all you do my friend!!!!!!!!

Georgia just scored on 4th and 10 with a minute left in the game!

Sarasota 'cane

Come down to the GT game VA. It's one of the best UM away games on the slate.

VA Cane

You know what i love the best? the attack on D....those kids are after it.....and the Up Tempo O......where have we been for 12 years......what a change....nothing but positive.....got to love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohio State looking good with a young squad....

Cal Texas looks like a chess match right now. Texas fan wanted to run Strong last year. Patience is a virtue!

Kaaya looks average.

:0)

Sarasota 'cane

Agreed Soup. Let's hope he's still adjusting to the new system.

TonyCane

Sarasota, Strong was in a similar situation as Golden (or any coach that would have taken over Miami in 2011). The bulk of top talent were upper class men. He deleted nine players his first year, hampering depth at the O line position. Two straight great recruiting classes are rebalancing the team, but now the bulk of talent is very young.

CoCane

Other then the INT in the red zone and over throwing Harris on a deep pass, Kaaya was on point today. 21-27 78% over 300 yds and 3 tds...

If that is average, I'll take average every saturday...

Good team victory. Nasty fast defense. Explosive offensive plays. Snatched ASU's heart out of their chest. Love it...

Keoki

#11 Texas goes down to Cal

Consistency is the key

F'the Turds!
GO CANES!!!

Go,GoCanes!

Oklahoma, Texas, ND, Ole Miss, Oregon and Iowa will likely drop out or below us in the polls. If there's any sense in the world Tennessee and the Turds are below us too.

We should be in the 15-20 range today.

Let's hope the SEC bias isn't crazy this week as usual.

BigWindyCane1

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2664098-college-football-rankings-2016-bleacher-reports-week-4-top-25/page/14

The new Bleacher Report poll has the Canes at #14. Definitely should be ranked higher than Tennessee. Votes with SEC bias plus votes for the underwhelming big 12 and PAC 12 will keep us a little lower

Go,GoCanes!

That's about where we belong Windy.

Competition level hasn't been good but our consistency has been from snap one of game one.

Not many schools can say that about their performances this season, with plenty of Top 25 teams struggling against far inferior opponents.

Like CoCane said yesterday, a couple of small lapses yesterday before half and to start the second, but we then righted the ship and finished the blowout. Same with FAU which came out jacked because of what this game meant to them. We got through that and steam rolled them.

GT will be a test, don't know how Coach Diaz has fared or if he's even faced that offense at this level.

Think we'll know by halftime if we are in for a dogfight in that one.

The Dude

Georgia Tech put 49 on Mississippi State in 2014, but coach Diaz wasnt on the Bulldog staff yet.

NicKane

Boy I tell you what pisses me off the most about the golden era is just the constant misses on hidden gems in our own back yard. Lamar Jackson is looking mr heisman this year and just plain and simply unstoppable. So I looked him and the kid is a freakin boynton beach product! And to make it worse his lead recruiter to Louisville was our own Lamar Thomas! Golden couldn't have found as spot for a cane great in Thomas on his crew of misfits? Just makes so sick! Ok that's the last thing ever gonna post about that loser because we got CMR now and the sky's are blue and the future is so bright, wait for it, I gotta wear shades! Lol 😂😎

Coolmac758

Don't Dwell on The People that are not Here or the O be we missed out on. Golden is Gone, so Let him stay Away. I Like This Team Alot, and They're Young. Kaaya will probably stay. Let's See How Recruiting goes, and hopefully we get the offensive lineman, Linebackers and Cornerbacks we Need to go to the Next Level.

NicKane

I think Nkosi perry is the truth coolmac. I've been singing his praises for awhile now. The kid just broke Dante culpeppers td record. The kids an elite four star with five star potential. I think he has a chance to be one of the best most dynamic qbs in cfb. I'm not sure how fast he is but he looks 4.4 when he's playing ball. To put that in perspective Lamar Jackson ran a 4.79 in highschool and was a low 3 star.

Go,GoCanes!

Can't see Kaaya staying if projects where he's projecting on some of the sites we've seen.

The Dude

Brad Kaaya's #SHHHH tweet made me laugh.

In July of 2015, I recall that walterfootball.com projected Brad Kayaa as the number one or two pick overall.

They presently have him going #16 in the first round to the Jets.

There are going to be some disappointed people here in Texas. They gave up 50 or more points in two of their first three games.

Posted by: Go,GoCanes! | September 18, 2016 at 10:19 AM

True but to be honest. I think those projections are quiet A bit immature. I don't think he's ready for the league by a long shot yet. I think he has a lot of work to do on playing under center, footwork in the pocket, consistency with the accuracy of his throws and so on. I think he's back next year.

Lur-ker

I doubt we're ranked higher than 18-20

Go,GoCanes!

One thing we see every year is an NFL team reaching into the Top 5 of the draft for a QB. A lot of the time based on projected potential.

Don't see it as such a reach for him to go very high in the first.

Will worry about that when the time comes. Until then will enjoy having him here.

Go,GoCanes!

And he dropped one:

Miami true freshman WR Ahmmon Richards ran only 15 routes yesterday, picked up 142 yards on four catches.

An absurd 9.47 yards/route

BigWindyCane1

I hope you are right Nick, but I am afraid that any scout who sees him throw live will want to draft him HIGH on the first day. You just don't see many players like him in college football. CMR has him in a true pro style offense for the first time in his career. Scouts like that, and CMR knows how to coach QBs. And if this Canes team keeps playing well like this, Kaaya will definitely go high in the draft.

Go,GoCanes!

Porter has us at 16.

https://twitter.com/mattyports/status/777499710965837824

UMike

I think we will be ranked 20-22 in that area. Still and improvement. I think a few games will go out way over the bye week and we could sneak into the top 20 by the GT game.

Lur-ker

We won't be sneaking into the top 20 if we beat GT. We'll be solidly in the top 20 no lower than 16-18

VfB_Cane

Our strength of schedule sure took a hit yesterday.
After week 2, GT remains the only undefeated team on our schedule. And they might fall to Clemson on Thursday.

I looked as this season as a rebuilding effort to get some bad habits out of the system while winning maybe 10 games. But if the team stays healthy, very good things might happen this year.

The Dude

USC's Max Brown throws a better ball than Kaaya. 6'4"+ and a live arm is a dime a dozen. Brad needs to come back and work on some things.

The Dude

Posted by: VfB_Cane | September 18, 2016 at 11:33 AM

Nice to see you back. We just need to beat the teams we should get to 10 games. My concern is how do we get to 12 4* recruits?

We should be ranked ahead of them right now.

Still hope they beat the gators out.

ARIZ:

Despite bye, this is a huge week for Canes football
**The Miami Hurricanes will not play a game in week four, but this is a monumental week for the football program. The Canes have had a successful first three weeks on the field – taking care of business against an FCS school and two non-P5 programs. Miami will make two announcements this week that are both expected to make waves in the national headlines and will keep Miami front and center in the eyes of recruits, even on their bye week.

Tomorrow, the school will unveil the “new” Adidas uniform design, which is heavily influenced by the look worn by the Canes of the 80s and 90s. The unis were leaked on Twitter last night and I can confirm that this is what they will look like. Keep in mind that the sleeves will be tighter for the version worn by players.

**The bigger news for Miami’s football program will be Friday afternoon announcement of an indoor practice facility, which has been in the final stages of planning for a couple of months now. This announcement will is being labeled as “by invitation only” and is being held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. It is scheduled to begin at 5:00PM and school president Julio Frenk will be in attendance along with athletic director Blake James.

Canes coaches have been showing the facility layout plans to recruits since the spring. Sources have told CanesInSight.com that Miami is aiming to have construction completed by the start of the 2018 season. It works out nicely that the 2018 recruiting class of prospects is one of the most talent-laden groups in recent memory.
Real estate developer Jeffrey Soffer and his family will be the lead donor for the project. Donor details here:

South Florida billionaire Jeffrey Soffer and family expected to help finance UM's indoor football practice facility | Miami Herald

**A few team things…

Brad Kaaya’s knee is fine. There is no structural damage and if there was a game this week, he would play with little to no hindrance. Team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Lee Kaplan and head athletic trainer Vinny Scavo were taking a close look at Kaaya on the sidelines yesterday as he took a hit while chasing the return on the interception that he threw.

Adrian Colbert, who is coming off a meniscus tear and minor knee procedure, would be ready to play this week if there was a game. He will be important in the next game against Georgia Tech where the cornerbacks will need to get active in the run game. His history as a safety lends to him being effective against the run.

Notable stats
**Miami is converting on 51.5% of their 3rd downs this season, which ranks 17th nationally. The Canes finished 95th in the country in the same category last season (35.47%)

**Miami’s defense has allowed only 217 yards per game, which ranks 3rd nationally.

**The pass defense has allowed 152.3 yards per game, which ranks 14th nationally.

**The run defense has allowed 65 YPG, which ranks 7th nationally.

**The defense has allowed 7.7 points per game, which ranks 2nd nationally.

**The Canes are tied for 5th in sacks with 13. They had 26 sacks all of last season.

**Mark Walton has the 7th-most rushing yards in the country with 401.

This stat here from Pro Football Focus gives you another look at Ahmmon Richards’ 4-catch, 142-yard freshman receiving record at Miami.

Go,GoCanes!

Vols are horrible.

Tennessee, Auburn, Kentucky, LSU and maybe Miss St. will be looking for new coaches this offseason.

nemo2002

Three cupcakes to start the season and then a bye week.
I hope we're not living in fantasyland.

Mountain Cane

SEC has Alabama and a bunch of pretenders. 7 teams ranked 15-24 going into the weekend were all "SEC courtesy" rankings.

Tenn ranking probably the biggest joke with a home underserved OT win over App St. As screwy as the polls are, the squeaker home win over The Ohio (not state) University will probably have them move up.

On the other hand, I'd just as soon have us move up slowly. Kids are kids and they have 2 weeks before GT to hear how good they are. Need to be very careful. GT will be ready. No big heads allowed.

Polls are obviously important, but the teams must play and earn respect on the field. The Canes have a chance to control their destiny, but they need to take care of business one play, one game and one month at a time. The Canes just need to go out and earn the pollsters respect. The Canes were undefeated in September. If the Canes go undefeated in October, they will undeniably be in the conversation for ACC championship and CBF in November. The Canes fandom could not ask for more.

Artie Burns with a great play in the corner of the endzone to save a TD.

The more you look at it, we had talent on the teams of the past 10 years, just no coaches to use it properly. Looking at how quickly the freshmen got ready to play, I think that problem may be behind us.

If FSU makes a habit of getting blown out, that may help us a lot in recruiting as well. The Gators are not having the finest time in program history either, which puts us in a great position as long as the wins keep coming.

BigWindyCane1

In 2015, FSU chose to recruit DeAndre Francois, the #1 dual threat QB and #39 prospect overall by Rivals, originally from Orlando (I recall he played youth football for the Orlando Outlaws), but eventually played at IMG Academy. Louisville recruits Lamar Jackson , the #17 dual threat QB, with no national ratings by Rivals out of Boynton Beach.

I guess Rivals and FSU got that one wrong.

I come clean. I was probably the lone Cane loyalist who said the Canes would finish 9-3 and finally win a bowl game. However, after further deliberation. huh The Canes have a very decent shot to go undefeated during the regular season or finish 11-1 in a worst case scenario. OUCH Why U wonder? It's all about the defense. In other words, Cane bubba knew the offense could be potent, yet the WILDCARD was the defensive unit. And from all indicators. The Cane defense will continue to improve, and won't be a troublsome " liability " during the month of All Hollows Eve. No not Sleepy Hollow. huh
