BLACKSBURG, Va.

It’s not even Halloween yet and the University of Miami football team is fighting for its life.

Deep into the mish-mash of what is known as the Coastal Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Hurricanes will attempt to stay relevant when they meet Virginia Tech at 7 p.m. Thursday.

With the autumn beauty of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains and a possible sellout at Lane Stadium making an already thunderous venue even more imposing, this could be fun.

“When one team is getting cheered for, it gives them juice,” UM coach Mark Richt said. “When one team is getting cheered against, it pumps them up, too.

“There will definitely be a lot of emotion going into this thing.”

Two weeks ago, the Hurricanes (4-2, 1-2 ACC) were ranked 10th in the nation in both major polls, ahead of in-state powers Florida State and Florida.

Now, losers of their past two games at home against the Seminoles and North Carolina, they are teetering between a downward spiral and uplifting rebound. A victory would make Miami a more significant player when it goes into South Bend, Indiana, 10 days later to face Notre Dame.

The Hokies (4-2, 2-1) are coming off an especially stinging loss at Syracuse (they were a 22-point favorite), and though they have the same overall record as Miami, their extra Coastal victory makes it even tougher for the Canes. North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Virginia also only have one league loss, with Georgia Tech and Duke’s three ACC losses pretty much eliminating them from contention.

“It’s like I told them,” Richt said after the loss to UNC, “if you look at the scores across the league, everybody is battling every day. You don’t know for sure what can happen. You want to put yourself in position just in case something breaks your way, because it can come around.

“You just have to keep fighting.”

Like Richt, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente is in his first season with his program. But Fuente is following heralded coach Frank Beamer, who was with the Hokies for nearly three decades but sadly wore out his welcome among much of the fan base.

Fuente runs an up-tempo offense led by quarterback Jerod Evans, who has completed 96 of 153 passes for 1,346 yards and 17 touchdowns (two interceptions) and leads the ACC in pass efficiency.

Go Canes!

No Redwine tonight. Didn't even travel to Blacksburg.

Id guess its a suspension, not injury related but it's not confirmed anywhere

UMike

With their up tempo ad us being so depleted, might be trouble. Scary to think we might need the O to carry us tonight.

UMike

BLACKSBURG, Va. — The Hurricanes will be missing another defensive player for their game at Virginia Tech.

A source told The Post that starting cornerback Sheldrick Redwine, a sophomore who has started the last five games opposite senior Corn Elder, did not make the trip and thus will not play Thursday (7 p.m., ESPN).

A UM spokesperson did not offer comment.

Redwine, who has 16 tackles and two pass break-ups in his first year as a starter, was not listed on UM’s injury report, which was released Tuesday.

Those who were listed as out: starting defensive end Demetrius Jackson, rotational defensive tackle Gerald Willis and reserve defensive end Scott Patchan, all of whom have knee injuries. UM said they have “lower extremity” injuries.

Another player, starting defensive end Chad Thomas, was listed as “questionable.” UM said Thomas, the team’s leader in tackles for loss (8.0; 3.0 sacks), has an “upper extremity” injury. Thomas, who played with a broken hand last week against North Carolina, sustained a different injury in that game. Thomas did not practice Tuesday, but made the trip to Blacksburg.

I have no doubt we will win tonight. Why?? Because it is my birthday today and a victory is what I am asking for (blowing out make-believe candles as I make this wish)....

Go Canes!

Now there's a reason if there's ever been one!

How old are you today?

UMike

Well...to add to that... I got engaged last night so maybe they will win!!!


Happy birthday Raize, hope you have a great one.

Go Canes!

Damn there's a lot of great stuff happening on the Space today!

Congrats UMike, from everything I can gather from the outside looking in you're both people with an overwhelming desire to do good and help others.

With that in common, the rest will be cake.


And Raize, well, you're just getting old buddy.

D, KEEP doin what cher doin, and O, ahhhh yes, the O, well for all that is GOOD and DECENT on this PLANET, PLEASE use our GIANT TE's and DRAWS to take pressure off Kaya. It boggles the mind WHY we haven't used our TE's more, and get back to power running game in other areas besides UP THE GUT!!! I BEG of thee!!!

UMike

Ummmmm, my 3rd! Had a really really short mistake of a marriage when I was young. Then had a decently long marriage the second go round. Either way this is my final. Never thought I would again after the last, but if there is any woman on this earth that could deal with me forever its her haha

Happy Birthday RaizeCane!

Congragulations UMike! But 3rd time dawg??? UMike must be addicted to divorce LOL.

ColaCane

3rd time's a charm!!

UMike

haha.. I knew i was gonna get some shyt on it being number 3! Man shyt happens... the first one was a dam fluke lol... the second was good while it lasted, I have an awesome step-son (ex step-son?) that was actually with me at the GT game, but when it came down to it my kids werent happy and they are my priority so it had to end. I was single for a while man before I just happened upon this one. Night and day different from the last.

Go Canes!

Damn! Three??

UMike is a playaaaa...

CaneRock

LOL...just bustin' ya' chops UMike.

I'm all for marriage, but sometimes I think it's overrated. Off the top of my head, I've been to 6 weddings these last few years, and 5 of em' ended up in divorce...crazy.

UMike

CR, I agree. Its typically just a piece of paper. We also have another motive...we may be in a position to adopt in the very near future. Now that is not the sole reason for this, but is certainly part of the timing.

As injuries add, up the lack of depth on this team will continue to be exposed. Hoping for the best, but realistically this is at least a 2 year re-build.

Much ado about nothing. Oh, and one more thing. Time after time after time I've said that the Miami, Florida Hurricane football program is PROGRAMA NON GRATA in the eyes of the ethical NCAA. Duh But that go canes, and like-minded fans, DON'T want to admit it!

By the way, it's that go canes who keeps on moaning, groaning and BYTCHING about the ACC referee crews continually STICKING IT UP Miami's U Know What. LOL So I guess the ACC still holds a grudge against Miami. Even though Miami is miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away from " being Miami. "

The bottom line: During Miami's Glory Days and during the prime of Ali, both were DESPISED, HATED, CONDEMNED and FEARED because both Miami and Ali ' defied " the system and what not. Thankfully the Miami program has a head coach now who does the best he can, to keep his program " squeaky clean. " Huh.

TheeMackJones

Playing the Black and White scenario and what not. Miami is either going to get MOLESTED on national television tonight. Or it's going to be a very, very, very tight game. With Miami ESCAPING pastoral Blacksburgh with a much needed victory. Huh.

So it behooves Richt, Kaaya and the rest of the offense to CARRY the defense tonight! Because if the offense plays like it has the previous two games. The majority, but not all, of Canespace fans WON'T bother to watch the second-half!!

Love Paul Simon. GO CANES

The last Cane to go on the war path was Winslow, II. And he was condemned, chastised and ridiculed for using a " war metaphor " which has been a part of sports for the past century! Because I absolutely GUARANTEE, that if it would've been another player, besides a Cane player. That player would have received at least SIXTY PERCENT less criticism than Kellen! No ifs, buts or huh.

Thankfully, there were a few former players, like THE BOZ, who defended Kellen's tirade.

I should have typed. And " war metaphors " have been a part of sports the past century. Duh.

Go Canes!

So does all that mean the bobbled ball should or shouldn't have been a TD?

OL Sunny Odogwu - Injured his lower leg when he was rolled up on during the FSU game. Odogwu will require surgery to fix the issue and may be able to return by the end of the season.

DT Gerald Willis - Willis sustained a knee sprain against Florida State that will keep him out of the UNC game and possibly longer.

NFL Scout: QB Kaaya Drops to Third Round Grade

Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya has not had the first half of his junior season that many had hoped.

Kaaya entered the season pegged as a first-round pick in 2017 by scouts and mock drafts, but an underwhelming first half has dropped his draft status an NFL scout has informed InsideTheU.

Kaaya is 10th among the 14 quarterbacks in the ACC in total QBR with a 62.2 rating, which ranks 55th nationally after being 35th (69.4) in 2015. He has thrown for 1,372 yards on 62-percent passing with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Kaaya’s struggles have been in the limelight in the past two weeks with losses to Florida State and North Carolina as Miami has averaged 16 points in the two games with Kaaya unable to out-perform his counterparts.

The losses have dropped Kaaya to 17-14 as a starting quarterback at Miami including 0-3 against rival Florida State and without a signature win his career.

The scout believes Kaaya will return to Miami for his senior season to improve his draft status and help lead the Hurricanes to a successful season.

Kaaya and the Hurricanes (4-2, 1-2 ACC) are back in action Thursday (7 p.m, ESPN) against Virginia Tech (4-2, 2-1) in Blacksburg.

Miami has depth at TE and Rb. It used to have depth on the D line, but injuries have depleted the depth. Miami's two's used to able to start on most other teams in the country in the hay day, that is depth, not one player here or there.

"Here's a funny joke, keeping with Soup's request.

Where is hiring a DL coaching with 30 years experience, including 7 in the NFL under the likes of our ex d-coordinator Schiano and four time Super Bowl champ Bill Bellichik ridiculed?

And that ridicule is because we didn't hire a guy with ZERO years experience or an ex-Cane with no NFL experience currently coaching at North Texas State.

This is the kind of shit I'm sure drives Soup to where he was last night. It's not the negativity, it's the negativity for the sake of it.

No one here has a SINGLE CLUE which one of these guys is a better coach.

None. Zero.
