Congrats, 58 Straight

Go,GoCanes!

Day before Game Day!

Go Canes!!!

Go,GoCanes!

More convinced than ever we're going to handle our business in a dominant fashion tomorrow.

Looking over their schedule from last year, they lost by two touchdowns to Arkansas State and beat the likes of Troy and Idaho.

The Old Dominion team they just beat 31-7 lost to FIU by 30 last year.

Play hard, play smart, hit a few big plays early to silence the crowd and go home with a 20 point win.

UMike

30-17 Miami. They score first with a hyped crowd and our youngsters having jitters. Then we score and force a 3 and out to silence crowd.

1mg of Epi

App will have net negative rushing yards. It's not going to be close.

raizecane

We are going to handle appy state so easily, I predict that I will only have 2 capt-n-cokes during the game tomorrow.

UMike

The University of Miami football team’s first two games have not been particularly revealing, which gives Saturday’s noon game at Appalachian State an added dimension of suspense.

The Hurricanes go on the road for the first time with new coach Mark Richt, and they are visiting the snug home of giant-slayers in Boone, North Carolina, where hostile spectators’ boos will echo off the Blue Ridge Mountains.

It was nine years ago that the Appy State Mountaineers upset No. 5 Michigan in Ann Arbor’s Big House, silencing approximately 109,000 stunned fans and prompting the Associated Press to change its policy and include smaller FCS schools in the AP Poll, which had been the exclusive domain of FBS teams. Appalachian State finished the season 13-2, won a third straight national FCS title and tied South Florida for No. 34 in the final poll.

UMike

Trying something new around here. Every Friday I’ll give you five projections for the upcoming game, and you tell me how wrong I was (or, grudgingly or not, accept that I was right).

Let’s get to it:

How will Brad Kaaya perform?

He hasn’t looked totally comfortable in the first two weeks, missing a few throws against Florida A&M and throwing two picks against Florida Atlantic. Remember, he threw five all of last year.

He’s had a tough time getting his footing in 2016. He’s working in a new offense, operating under center more than ever. He’s a pocket passer, and his protection has been inconsistent. He’s a rhythm quarterback, and Miami has opted to go to the run.

I think Kaaya will perform as well as his offensive line blocks him.

My guess: he throws for around 200 yards, with one touchdown and zero interceptions. Miami will try to stick with what it does best right now: run the dang ball.

How many tackles for loss will the Hurricanes get?

The nation’s leaders in negative plays (10 sacks, tied for first; 28 tackles for loss, alone in first) will be knocked off their blistering pace. This is a hard-nosed run game they’re facing. But I still think they get their share.

In App State’s opener, Tennessee tackled running back Marcus Cox four times for no gain and four times for losses (twice on rushes, twice on receptions). Old Dominion got one of each. I’ll say Miami matches that, and gets Cox five times for losses and five times for no gain. I don’t think the Mountaineers will throw enough for Miami to match the seven-sack output against FAU, but I think the Hurricanes get three.

Can App State stop Miami’s run game?

Not sure which Mountaineers defense the Hurricanes will encounter in the area known as the High Country. App State held Tennessee to 2.95 yards per carry, surrendering 127 yards on 43 carries, and registered five tackles for loss. Then it went ahead and let Old Dominion have 5.06 yards per (31 for 157). Not good.

I think all the crowd-driven energy that comes with this game, which they’re calling the biggest event in the town’s history, fires up App State’s defense enough to swarm Mark Walton and Joe Yearby.

This would call for a 6 drink capt-n-coke. I already said it was going to be a 2 drink game so the score will not be this close.

We're not hanging 52 on them. But I would be happy to be wrong. The most I would say is 37-42

Even with Aaron Murray and Gurley, they only put 45 on them lol

Only? It's not FAMU, where U can score 55+, but it's not FSU or Bama, either. Winning by 39 is a BLOWOUT.

Ohio...I didnt mean it like that. Me and raize were talking earlier about the score and I said I didnt think we would put 52 on them, tops 37-42. Didnt mean 45 isnt a lot.

TonyCane

Appalachian State should be proud of their accomplishments. It's a wonderful story, really. And someday they can compete...for more than a quarter with Miami. But today is not that day.

So on Saturday, you are all cordially invited to see...

...the worlds smallest D1 stadium, or close to it
...Mark Walton, who rushes for 198 and 2 touchdowns and begins to enter Heisman conversations
...Brad Kayaa, who throws for 280 and three scores
...a App State offense that will make Georgia Tech's air attack look vigorous
...the emergence from of Gus Edwarda
...the loudest collection of 27,000 fans you'll see this season, at least until the third drive makes it 21-0

For App State, this is their biggest game of all time. For us, this should be considered another appetizer. Like tasty mozerella sticks.

Gin & Tonic

I just hope Miami doesn't try to play a finesse speed game and try to beat App State with a pass happy attack.

Smack them in the face early and often.

Go,GoCanes!

Unless it works awesome, then I'll be totally ok with it.

App State only converted 3rd downs 19% of the time this season. I think Golden did better than that last year, or did he?.....We got this!!!! 42-13 Canes 🙌

Under previous circumstances, this could easily be a repeat of Cincy from last year.

BigWindyCane1

This game to verify what I think I saw during the first two weeks - an aggressive, well-coached, prepared, strong and powerful team up front on both sides of the ball, linebackers who can run and strike and great skill position players who can make very big game-changing plays. ASU is a very good team, but I think they are comparable to FAU. If epi is right about the score, this team could be good enough to not only play in the ACC Championship game, but win it.

SJMPARMAN

Good article on the basketball schedule. It is a transition year in basketball but it don't matter, Larranaga will always keep us competitive the way he is running the program. But this discussion is for early January.

My prediction is 24-12. The clocks runs quickly when both teams run the ball and that is what the first half will be about. Our players are hitting the right holes in the 4-3 and with authority. Our running backs ran well during the tune up games. Kaaya still learning offense under center. It takes a little time to change. It is very disrespectful to coach Right that this isn't a 6 point game. I actually think the more likely result tomorrow is a Canes blowout.

My feeling is it will resemble last nights Houston Cinn game, with UM playing the role of Houston. App St. isn't going to "surprise" UM, but they will be pumped and should linger throughout the first half. IMO UM will adjust and run away in the 2nd half.

14% (12% + playoff and title!)
