I think this snipped from one of Solar's posts supports a vital point - that X's and O's is only a small percentage of what is takes to win consistantly in College football:


"Coach Jim Grobe said he made the move after his team's anemic performance out of the spread formation in last week's 26-0 loss to Maryland. For the first time since the fourth game of the 2006 season at Mississippi, Skinner did not throw a pass in the first quarter.

Instead, the Deacons reverted to the Power-I and ran on their first 24 plays. By the third play of the second quarter, they had 121 yards rushing and a 10-3 lead."

My contention is that 75% of the game is mental. 10% is talent. 10% Health. And the other 5% is the playbook.

CARRY OVER FROM THE LAST:

Well, well, well...look what I found!

The Cleveland Browns coaching staff has not only Chud calling the plays but a former UM TE and offensive lineman coaching there too:

Solar,.. thanks for the Article

Virginia...
Moments after knocking of its first ranked opponent on the road in seven years, Virginia’s players screamed out a message that billowed outside the visiting locker room at Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd Stadium.
“Beat Miami,” the youngsters yelled in unison.
As they have done over the course of their current four-game winning streak, the Cavaliers (5-3, 3-1 ACC).
What Virginia accomplished against Georgia Tech in Atlanta during its 24-17 win, albeit remarkable as the team secured first place in the ACC’s Coastal Division, was merely history.


Betting line... Miami, an early 1-point favorite over Virginia, is riding an emotional high. The Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2).

How in the hell do we become a 1 point favorite, playing in Virginia against the ACC Coastal leader? We are a young team, just getting out of short pants, with nothing to show on satistics and the bookies are calling our name as favorites... They must be reading our bloggs...
GoCanes!!!

MidWestCane

The point:

"the Deacons reverted to the Power-I and ran on their first 24 plays. By the third play of the second quarter, they had 121 yards rushing and a 10-3 lead."

-But they still loss.

Cat5 Cane

later...!

Solar posted an article on OC's, a good article. It claim that the top teams, who appear often in the BCS, average like 10 OCs over a short span of time.

However, that, in and of itself, supports that X's and O's are like clothing - and clothing doesn't make the Man.

The Gator's and other's ran the spread for years. I think they all average 1 championship each under the that coach in that system.

"The U" ran only or mostly the Pro Formation - resulting into 5 NCs.


Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, etc. like Miami - kept it simple.

Sy-Cane

With Miami's offense scoring points some weeks and not the other, here's my prediction:

With Miami scoring 52, 3, 41, 24, 39, 20, 49, and 16, I take it that Miami will score more than the previous week...that is, our offense will show up.

Although I'd love to say that we'd score 45 (average score of every other week), I don't want to jinx myself, so I'll stick with this score:

Miami 28
Virginia 23

shwarma

I agree mid, keep it simple.

MidWestCane

Our Old coaches put "NFL U" on the map. The best of the Best. How did they do it. Xs and Os?

MidWestCane

Soldinger knew how to motivate. His track record is undisputed. And he left "The U" - with that mark.

Jimmy Johnson did the same.

Now RS is teaching the same way.

If Mentally a player, a team, is Great everything else is a subordinate challenge.

My contention, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS, BECAUSE 'MIND IS OVER MATTER'.


Peace.

hurriphin

sy-it seems like the only time we put up big points is when the game is competitive, or close.(too close) I plan for UM to be up two scores at halftime, but UVA to hang around long enough to where UM will have to score at least 34.
38-20 UM....?

hurriphin

the other possibility is that those rushing OLB's from uva give marv-is hell and the game becomes like UM vs. ucf/wf. in that case travis benjamin will have to save us by giving us field position, and god help me, housing a return! either way D will have to step up on 3rd downs. maybe 24-16 UM?

SOUP

From Manny:

Wake Forest progress report:

Three wins in a row for the Canes including what I now consider the most impressive win of the season. In all honesty, while wins against Duke, Charleston Southern, UCF and Texas A&M all obviously count, this was the first time this season I felt Miami beat a good team. Wake Forest doesn't have much of an offense and doesn't score a bunch of points. But the Demon Deacons are still a formidable foe with a very good defense, a group of experienced starters and backups, and a quarterback that up until last Saturday was leading the ACC in passing.

Like I said in Saturday's postgame analysis, Miami got pounded for a quarter by a veteran team. But, then, the Canes turned the tables and played like the more physical team for the better part of the final 2 1/2 quarters. That was impressive. Now to the progress report.

Cat, I was thinking the same thing. lol

Soup, great pics.

Chinese Punisher aka Cavaleer

MidWest, I think mentality is 75% sweat 25% genetics. I also include strategy under mentality as well.

I don't know if simple means effective or the timing of a particular play-call.

Schnell's offense orchestrated by Gary Stephens was difficult to defend because we could run or pass with equal ability, so the defense could never game-plan for just one of the other. We could run to set up the pass or pass to set up the run. We could run inside on a fast team or run outside on a slow team.

Erickson's system worked for a minute until he slacked off with discipline and recruiting and other teams figured out how to blitz. But he was running the spread back in '89.

My preference is the pro-set, which is why you see the nest NFL teams running and offense that is like what we ran in the '80s.

With a pro-set you can do whatever the situation requires or attack your opponents weakness. With the spread, if your OL can't handle a blitz or fierce front four, or if your WRs can't get open quickly enough what can you do??

The advantages of it are great, however, when the conditions are right. But then so are the wish-bones.

It will be interesting to see what happens when TX plays TT.

Chinese Punisher aka Cavaleer

Sy-Cane, that's an interesting trend. Hmmm.

I'll have to watch some UVA film or a game on replay to see what they do on defense.

Soup, great pics.

ALL the canespacers are awesome people.

pb(CSHOF09)


I was surprised to see us favored too.

I think thats more a reflection on the betting public's wagering practices than anything.

Got to put the line where there will be plenty of action...

Cane since 1982

Go to the damn games.

The Dude

Got to love the feel of this team right now. We arent dominant by any means, but we are loose and winning. I cant wait until next year.

SOUP

Go to the damn games.

1982...if those photos do not make U want to go to games, NOTHING will!

Ive had to miss two and its been torture.

Even though I travel a lot and usually have a lot going on, nothing can ever top the opening kick off at a Canes game.

busy_cane

Was Ocala hosting auditions for the new, upcoming Van Halen videos?

Wow!

-cheers

pb(CSHOF09)


Lol busy. Lady with a baby is very, very nice.

Young coeds...Dont think a comment is necessary...

Loco

By the way, the UM athletic department is one of the worst managed things ever. What other school stops allowing students to enter the stadium after half time? Especially two minutes after halftime?

pb(CSHOF09)


But let me be clear, I continue to only have eyes for CGNC...

The Truth

Thank you Canez1.

Clearly, Norm Chow is a terrible terrible offensice coordinator. His play call must be abysmal and his plays are retaded.

In fact, I heard, he just flat our forgot how to coach QB's and run an offense all together.

Fire Him. He sucks.

LOL

Still want to argue about talent VS coaching??

http://www.cfbstats.com/2008/leader/national/team/offense/split01/category10/sort01.html

The Truth

And never mind that the HC over there at UCLA has a pretty good offensive mind as well.

I guess he along with arguably a top 2 OC in all of college football over the past 20 years have BOTH forgotten how to coach.

FIRE THEM NOW!!!!!

LOL

SOUP

Truth...WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, don't go there. No need to start all that again on here, we are ALL in positive mode, even Carlos, Rudy and the rest. Well except for Jerry?

GO CANES, BEAT UVA!!!

Im gonna have to make it over to the CaneSpace bus for the VT game. You guys are just parked on the far oppostie side of where I park and where my seats are.

Does anyone know how to get to the back side of the stadium (what I call the back) where the CaneSpace bus is from the Turnpike exit (with out walking)?

KLCaneFan

I have major issues with how TNP parking is set up... half the time I have to walk to where I want to be too. I guess by VT I'll finally have it down, but prolly not! LOL!

BTW, great pics, Ocala!

Cane Since 1982

OOOOOOOOOOOO

Miami is now a 1-2 point road favorite according to Vegas.

Dolphin Parking Map


If paying for parking... and wanting to go to the bus-tailgate, See where it says "cash", just above 203rd street... it is the closest to bus parking without a parking permit.

Easiest way,... is turn (east) off of 27 Ave (University) on 203 St... find bus parking (NW Corner of stadium grounds)and last time I saw the bus, it was near the letter "T" of "BUS LOT".

What about with a parking pass?

canechic

Hi guys studying 20th and 21st century philosophy found an interesting quote from Satre "We are alone with no excuses". Wow canes mantra existentialism.

Watching Steve Walsh last night on tailgate overtime and he was defending Nix. Not saying he is a terrific OC but that he knows his players and gives them what he thinks they can do. Maybe he does know more than us, just a thought for the day!!!


GO CANES!!

Cat5 Cane

82... Parking pass...

Sorry Bro.... See map and find your parking area and hike it... depending on distance, could be a camel's walk and to bring a 6 pack... LOL

Cane Since 1982

Eh, Im a genious and Nix is not. Thats all there is to it.

Cane Since 1982

Thats the prob Cat. Its not worth tracking across the stadium with a truck full of tail gate supplies and trying to talk other guys and gals to follow me to a web site they dont visit.

Thats why I need to find a way to get my truck over there. So we can set up shop some what near the bus.
