Dead around here lately. Looks like the last 13 years has birthed a lot of casual fans.

epi, I know the games were on Direct TV but for some strange reason (I run it through roku) the two football games said "blacked out", even the nc state game against syracuse. The Florida State basketball game was televised, also on ACC Network. Weird

I want a WIN tomorrow!

Never a casual fan. Each game breeds new hope. Each upcoming season a potential return to glory.

National championships. Swagger. Dominance.

All this has happened before and it will happen again.

Casual fan checking in?

Tbey haven't been on the usual channels.. been up in the 700s or whatever. Some outpost of a channel. When I tune in to whatever the guide says the receiver says it blacked out but asks if I want it to search for another channel carrying it.

Exactly. Everybody's waiting till next season for some glory.

VA Cane

Strong offensive line play has led to offensive explosions.

While this sounds good, it might be fairer to say all aspects of the OL play have been the Achilles Heel and most glaring weakness of the 2016 campaign.....along with the QB play and play calling....with all 3 being passive at best regarding attack and execution....thus 4 glaring losses relegating the team to below Top 30 ranking; about the right place at this time.

The Defense has been a pleasant surprise; the best we have seen in a long time.All things considered, better than any of Clappys, Onions, and AlPas efforts combined. We need to aggressively retain Coach Diaz.....can you imagine our record with last years D? well we would have won the first 3....all bets off on the rest!

1mg of Epi

Or about the last couple years record w this D

Go Canes!

In NYC for the weekend, may have to be a casual fan as viewing options are greatly limited.

Looks like it will have to be an ESPN game cast kind of day as our Canes win 27-17.

Oh, I see . . .

VA Cane

I think it is safe to say this has been a learning season in many ways. CMR came in with big expectations....(especially from us hungry for change and winning)...and a lot of things have changed...indoor facility, better all around preparation...a lot of the foundation was re-laid and set up for the future.
We lost a couple guys to foolishness...and started out hot against inferior teams. We hit the gauntlet we knew was coming....and found specific glaring issues in the OL, QB play, playcalling...and general issues in the execution of fundamentals....and as always penalties. However CMR has us back to 6-4....and a chance to go 8-4.
Hindsight is golden (LOL)....with a few changes in strategy coaching fundamentals thinking....and little more aggression....we really could be unbeaten...or 1 loss as VT woodshedded us in Bburg...again. The negatives that were costly we know....BUT Manny Diaz and a lot of young kids really made the D shine. VT excluded....it got away....The D played very well in all games and had the line, the QB play and the playcalling stepped up....well you never know. Manny and his young guys are incredible.....great job.
Overall, the future rise to greatness looks feasible. There is still plenty of room to improve in all areas. The line has to play more aggressively....stop shuffling the feet, hustle, run to blocks.....more muscle less fat! If you like #'s QB is not bad....but the execution, footwork, consistency has got to be top notch.....not very run of the mill average or so. BK is not an NFL QB by far...he will be back and must do much better. Playcalling must be dynamic and attack....not run run run punt. Penalties are a huge issue as always....this one is the one that irks me.....you either are stupid, dont think, or dont care.....all 3 are sins.

We can go out today and win...good matchup....but we can win if we correct the issues....because we WANT to!!!!!

Not that it matters, as I know nobody cares (Thanks Sarasota you absolutely have the right) but my young men play tonight at 5 for the right to go to the Super Bowl Dec 5....if we get there and can win.... it will be 8 of last 10 titles......but...I know... no big deal cause nobody cares...but I do.

Go Canes win today!!

mi@mic@ne

We also had some very costly penalties called against us the losses. You just know that the game in Raleigh is not a place to get the good calls ...

Weak.

Don't do this during the basketball game today either, there is no mi@spiracy there.

mi@mic@ne

I just tell it like it is...no bias ...

orange 'n green in the vein

No, the football team will lose, if they do, because of more shitty QB play, like they did in October, not because the refs who have cost them exactly zero games this season and gave them one last year.

VA Cane

We have costly penalties called because we commit them.....I just never buy into the excuse the refs are against us, they make bad calls, we was robbed...rarely is that so.

This team (since the beginning of time) has always been undisciplined and committed huge numbers of penalties of every kind....when we were elite you overcome stupidity and apathy because you have the best athletes in the country.

Now, we are a very average,limited talent team who commits huge numbers of penalties of every kind, and we cannot begin to overcome them....the talent is no longer there.

Penalties are a result of 3 trains of thought; you do not think and learn about them (coaching teaching), you are stupid as a box of rocks or you just do not care. no matter which, it is a mortal sin to commit penalties like we do.

Yes calls are missed and can be wrong; to blame the refs every play of every game for the last 13 years....(and you know who you are...read the game day comments)...is just as bad as committing them... you might need an eye exam........its just another age old excuse for losing instead of realizing that unfortunately we lack intelligence, coaching, and fortitude to change the trend. No matter what you think, the penalties have certainly cost us dearly the last 13 years.....so instead of whining and playing the blame game....CHANGE IT FOR ONCE!

If OL can do their job. ..most of the day. ..27-23 Canes
If not. ...31-17
God bless you and Go Canes!

VA Cane

....weather looks good...we can win today....The D will show up...they do. The freshman have done well....best freshman contributions since Jacory, SS, and co were freshmen.
The line has got to shore it up; consistent play, pick the feet up, run to blocks, protect the QB. Brad has got to get out of the funk and play a complete game; good throws, hit open guys, get rid of ball. CMR.....good play calling...not run run run and run more! Pass the damn ball....open it up.

The D will show up....get hungry as usual!

Big issue; stop the stupid penalties!!

Go Canes!!

Having watched every snap of NCST football this season, run run run is actually not the worst idea to attack them, especially if you can get to the edge, which I think UM's starter and backup RB's are well equipped to do.

If you let NCST tee off in obvious passing formations and situations they can generate plenty of pressure from four or just five guys up front. Tire out their interior strength of the defensive line by making them chase sideline to sideline to slow up the rush from fatigue and then start working underneath routes across the middle and comebacks to suck the safeties up to go over the top. Or throw from run formations, but the garbage QB is really bad at reading defenses out of the play fake under center and has trouble getting the ball out in a timely fashion so that's riskier than establishing an edge rushing game to be able to open up pass opportunities.

mi@mic@ne

Trying to find a link...they blacked it out on my espn..jerks

oh man the acc network is playing the game on tv ...

OGV...NCSU is 4th against the rush....they are stout in all ways on D....this could be a low scorer!!!!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

Numbers are low because they played that bad game in a hurricane Matthew last month VAC.

All the fumbled shotgun snaps artificially lower that number.

It's pretty easy to tell when the announcers haven't watched much hurricane football.

About time gold-hen girl loser for life against the primary rival dude!

Two slant routes, loser goes 50/50 on them.

Well, they scored first, now just take a 4th quarter lead and this is a near lock . . .

1. This is true.

2. Unfortunately this happens also. I have seen weak calls against Miami and no calls against the opposition with my own eyes. The eyes don't lie. It only takes one or two "bad calls" a game to change the score and/or the outcome.

Nice post VA.

mi@mic@ne

their d line is dominating our o

SinisterCane

and #52 was a 5*

mi@mic@ne

it shows we have a patched together o line...no dominating tackles

VA Cane

CGNC thank you.....we are learning....i cannot say enough about that D....man coverage almost all the time, freshmen really playing well....Manny is great.

We have a lot of work to do on the O.....but despite that 4 game nightmare; we really beat ourselves and were in all of them but VT....we are seeing things different.

We just must keep an open mind....and improve in all areas....fantastic Defense though!

VA- Manny Diaz always mentions "violence" in his nterviews lol.

Go Canes!

Good lord what a call.

VA Cane

Yes he does....and he believes it.....AlPa NoDPa......could not spell violence or aggression!!!!!!

orange 'n green in the vein

Above average Joe needs to get to the edge here and back the front seven off a little . . .

If he's still on the bench Smart Mark has some explaining to do.

VA Cane

I love that man coverage......its like discovering a fossil or an extinct species......for us!!!!

It takes a gambler on the field and as a coach.....i love Manny and his approach. He is the best DC we have had in a long time....at least since RS!!!! Randy was good....after him as DC not too happy with the scheme. This is fresh air!!!!!!!!!

SinisterCane

Add 76 to the back-up list for 2017

We cannot win matchups up front one on one.....that is really bad. That Achilles Hell sure does show.....we are very poor on OL!

mi@mic@ne

our oline is being ravaged its embarrassing.

mi@mic@ne

no real big tackles ..

Damm Gall maybe our best Olineman

The O is terrible

Coolmac758

Why is
This Team Tied with Us. Offensive line

VfB_Cane

OL is the unit that has the most room for improvement.
I sure hope there are some guys hidden on the scout team who'll be ready to play next year.

VA Cane

9 yards on 13 rushes......not impressive as a run game....

orange 'n green in the vein

The gold-hen girl loser for life against the primary rival dude is choking down to his usual garbage self again to end the year. Not even trying to get the ball off downfield out of bounds at the first sign of overwhelming pressure.

Above average Joe to the off tackle toss.

Duke will probably have nothing to play for except spoiling the finale as their toilet bowl game.

orange 'n green in the vein

The sacks set that number back.

SinisterCane

LOL Fathom Time out

mi@spiracy at work!

Nothing to see as usual actually.

Run the draw, TO if tackled short, throw a slant or bootleg on third if necessary.

Like I said.

What a gane loser.

that line is a sieve....you got to have that FG!!

Well they won the first quarter but lost the second.

Will need to get better in the 2nd half to win.

VA Cane

MSU OSU 10 -10 3rd quarter...hope Urban loses!!!!!

VfB_Cane

Time to turn Badgley into Goodgley. This game may very well be decided by field goals.

I wonder if Africane is worried about Clemson's QB putting up more than 40 with his offense in a loss now?

What a day to be a casual fan!

He is playing out of position, he is a guard NOT a tackle.

They should put Dobard at LT and move McDermott back inside.

HAPPY SOUP

As a causal fan I am not sure how the scoring is determined in football. How many points are awarded to the team that posses the ball longer and moves the ball down the field effectively even if they do not cross the goal line?

mi@mic@ne

How can they get away with the interference in the endzone in the first half? REDNECK RULING
