Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

Collin McCarthy looks physically imposing, he have the tools to be a pretty good NFL player, his got the numbers this year and playing as well if not better than every linebacker in the country, i'm still waiting for McShay and Kiper Jr. to give our boy the props he deserves!

Sean Spence is a Beast!!!

I hope our Canes take all their anger out on Wake Forrest!

I don't see how they lose two more, so I'm not worried. But the timing of his contract is terrible should they tank late.

>>>>>

Very true. But I don't see it happening. However, youth is fickle. They really have to focuse every day from this point foward. They being the players.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

He also didn't have a conference to impact his schedule.
He didn't have any great expectations put upon him, just his own.
Facilities sucked but I think thats how he would've designed it.

>>>>>>

DZ8, very, very good point about the expectations, the other side of that coin called "tradition."

I think that's probably the biggest factor of all.

dlu

Problem is the defense plays passive except for the front 4 dline. Always back on their heels, passive playing off on their mythical impossible assignments. Arthur is probably just an aggressive football player and has a hard time backing off. Arthur is probably like Ray Ray who did not see much time in the last game, wanting to lay people out.

Always waiting to see what the offense will do, waiting to get jabbed.

I will tilt at windmills until I see a decided change in defensive philosophy over a period of games. still mad as h*ll

dlu

Arthur cannot play just like Barry could not play until he played, remember Arthur looked pretty good in spring parctice also.

canesteeler

DLU, RS is trying to get a big contract! He doesn't have time to have personal issues with players therefore if AB was ready he would be on the field. The other Brown has nothing to do with AB not playing. AB's failure to get playing time is another indication that the recruiting services are full of BS with the number of stars they assign some players and it also illustrates the need of the U to keep as many local kids here as possible. News flash, Colin McCarthy is playing his azz off. Stay healthy and step it up another notch!

macjones de Albuquerque

That being said, we should whoop everyone's azz on the schedule from here on out. The only problems will come from depth and youth on defense, so we might have some shoot-outs.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | October 27, 2009 at 03:36 PM

Speaking of high scoring affairs of the A.C.C. degree, Wake Forest exclusively relies on the arm of Senior Skinner, which could be a harbinger of things to come for your Canes. Especially after the slinger from Clemson torched Lovett's D-unit.

With Sleepy out, the blitz package will have to come from the secondary. That's IF Lovett even dials up a blitz, or two, or three up.

Miami's shorthanded D-line just can't maintain the pressure on Skinner for four quarters. Because that was proven Sabado past.

Nonetheless, Coach Shannon already showed his Green N' Orange trump card. For instance, on his a.m. radio interview, he specified that their would be new secondary coverages installed.

Arthur is on special teams mostly to reward him playing time for his work ethic and loyalty. You see him give everything he has so it's got to be short bus syndrome at linebacker.

Randy says some guys blossom late.
If you don't have litte buds on your branches by the 20th game you been in uniform chances are good your gonna get pruned.

jus went online to get my tickets for the VA game, why dont they drop the prices so they dont have 40,000 empty seats? 60 bucks to sit in the endzone..... fine by me I am going no matter what, but dam feel like I am getting screwed every time I buy my tickets!!

Posted by: DATcane | October 27, 2009 at 08:51 AM

$60 for Canes game? I'd take it, i just ponied up $220 for two tickets to go see the play "Wicked". Now it is in London, but it's not sport.

all is good this lays the foundation for me to spend big on a sporting event and when the old lady tellls me "no" but it will be "but what about the $220 we spent show tickets. Excellent (in a Montgomery Burns voice)

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

PB, if those fools at CG are stupid enough to fire Shannon even after a 4-loss season, they're more idiotic than anyone I've ever heard of.

With that schedule and the way the kids have played, and the way they're clearly going to be playing, it would be height of idiocy.

pb(CSROH10)

Posted by: dlu | October 27, 2009 at 01:35 PM

Do you think Randy wouldnt play the #1 recruit in the nation if he knew it would help, just cause he didn't like his brother?
Do you think he's liked every kid he started?

Shannon knows his azz is on the line this year. Canes go bust and lose two more games the last half of this year and he's going to be looking for a job.

If Arthur could play, he would play.

He can't, so he isn't.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, yeah, Jacory does need more discipline with the ball and more urgency in the pocket. He's too cool sometimes, like against VT and at times against UCF. But against FSU he showed great pocket presence and movement under pressure. Quicker movements and reads are really the point, when to duck and run and when to throw it away quickly. He has the footspeed, he's just learning the actual footwork along with the mental work.

He'll develop those though.

Tebow should be getting a lifetime acheivement award but his stats this year are NOT heisman worthy.

Fair point about Schnell, but I think it is a half full/half empty debate.

He also didn't have a conference to impact his schedule.
He didn't have any great expectations put upon him, just his own.
Facilities sucked but I think thats how he would've designed it.

Schnell played for Bear at Kentucky. When he found out about The Junction Boys at Texas A&M he made some comment like, 8 days? We had to go thru three weeks!

Six

Texas Tech though does have an enormous amount of two legged talent on their campus

So maybe just the football players were getting with the wrong girls and Leach was calling them out on it, trying to get them to upgrade

In other news, why is Christian Ponder getting complete ignored by all these QB awards people?

How in the hell do Jacory and Matt Barkley make the Davey O'Brien list but not Ponder??

Disgraceful and ridiculous.

Posted by: Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer | October 27, 2009 at 12:48 PM

Because, it's all about the team records. Think winning and losing.

In other words, all is not fair when it comes to winning and losing.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, yeah, that makes sense about the LBs.

I'd put Ponder ahead of Jacory in most categories right now, which is as it should be. He's a RS junior. He should be ahead, and he's a very talented kid to begin with. It's a disgrace. Honestly, he should be in the Heisman talk because FSU probably doesn't win a game this year without him and he's outperformed T-Bone and McCoy.

I'd say Schnell walked into a situation more demanding than Shannon because Schnell had NO HISTORY or tradition, and definitely not facilities.

DZ8

``Against Clemson, when Sean went down, Coach put me in and I played good,'' Buchanan said. ``I played a lot of snaps last week. I'll probably play a lot more snaps this week coming up because we all know Sean is down for a little bit right now.''

from SMD the Herald.

dlu

pb maybe but I am not so sure, Arthur is not that small. You saying personalities and likes and dislikes never enter the picture. What perfect world are you from.

DZ8

I heart Jacory as much as the next guy but... he just threw the ball far enough away from the dbs and didn't overthrow TBenjamin. The play call showed Jacory the coaches have faith in him. The throw was a good, on-the-money throw but I think some of us are seeing too much into it.

I'm very confident Jacory will be here for his senior year. I would like to see more discipline from him as far as turn overs. Not just the ints but the lack of urgency in the pocket, often times resulting in fumbles. He has a Farve/Marino like issue where he just chucks the ball up into some dangerous situations. They got away with it because of their arm strength. He gets away with it because in high school and college his receivers are men playing with boys.

JMO, remember

I HEART JACORY as much as the next guy (or previous guy)

Jacory's TD after giving up the pick 6 to me was play of the year, and why I wouldnt trade him for anyone, but that play alone should have had us still throwing, instead of the 2 occurrances of run 3 and punt/FG

Posted by: phillyscott | October 26, 2009 at 08:48 PM

Philly brau, I made the following point to a total stranger sitting next to moi, at the local sports bar, last Saturday. Albeit he was a college football fan, because he had his eye on the Miami vs. Clemson game.

I told this old school cat, that after JaCory threw the T.D., after a deflating INT, he'd win the Heisman Trophy his Junior or Senior season ( That's IF he stays around for his Senior year. ).

For Harris to comeback after being knockdown like that took absolute MOXY. A MOXY he nurtured on the streets of Miami.

Because, not too many major college football QB's, especially juniors and or seniors, could throw a length of the field T.D., after throwing an INT for touchdown the previous play.

Yes indeed, that's what I told this kool kat. In other words, I said Harris has PSYCHOLOGICAL TOUGHNESS!

Man, I still absolutely tought Team Shannon would win after that tight TD pass.

DZ8

Agree on the third downs. Our front 7 can step up on the run but has issues applying pressure with just a four man rush.


Thanks Esteban

The guys need to get a 3rd down stop if they are getting tired. Easiest wat to get a rest, 3 and OUT. (but when that fails yes we need some back ups)

Posted by: DZ8 | October 27, 2009 at 01:46 PM

Best way for this D to get a stop on 3rd down is on 3rd and short. I am honestly way more confident in our D on 3rd and under 5 than I am on over 5 until it gets over 25 or so. even then I am not entirely sure they wont get called for a dumb penalty like PI or D-holding. If the rules were a set of 3 downs we would dominate!

I think Arthur is working hard and we'll see him eventually. If Randy had it "out" for him do you really think Arthur would still be here?

Esteban

Didn't see much of the game on Saturday. Cookie didn't do so well huh? Where did U see the quote U were talking about.

Esteban

when Arthur got an opportunity he didn't capitalize on it. And now he's back on the bench. I don't think there is any conspiracy to it. Just needs to do what the coaches ask him to do. With that said...with all these injuries they need to get him in there just so the other guys can get a breather if nothing else.

dlu

Honestly think about it Arthur Brown, there is another issue, maybe related to the way BBrown acted. Maybe coming to Canefest with a tenn jersey with Arthur. Its past any common sens. I do not believe it is Browns lack of getting it, I see brown fly on special teams.

I feel Shannon just does not like Brown for some reason at this pt. its personal, that is just my opionion based on basic logic.

raizecane

For those of you making comments about the lack of crowds you see at our home games I simply ask…..Where have you been??? Unless Miami is playing a marquee matchup (FSU, Notre Dame, USC, etc…), they are not going to fill up a stadium. I don’t care if it’s Land Shark or the OB. It has always been this way and it’s one of the knocks I get (being a Miami fan) from other teams fans. Heck, one of my closest co-workers is a Husker so he is always brining this up.

The only way the Hurricanes sell out every home game would be if A) every other sports team in Miami leaves, B) Miami builds an “on-campus” stadium. Like UCF’s Bright House stadium but made of concrete and not aluminum, lol. C) Give away tickets or D) 86 has a free canespace t-shirt for the first 80,000 people. 

DZ8

I saw that about Ponder and thought I read it wrong. Stat wise I'd put him ahead of Jacory, lack of ints for one thing.

I think Randy was just speaking off the cuff and saw nothing in the Clemson game, only saw the 4th qrtr, to make me think Cookie is out. RayRay probably just has too much talent to keep off the field and the need is at LB. When he mentioned those names it was in that order, Colin, Sharpton, Ray Armstrong, Arthur Brown. Since I don't think AB has skipped Cookie I think RayRay will get worked in with Cookie getting the most minutes. JMO


Jimmy Johnson took over a nat'l championship team though. We really don't have a coach we can look back on and measure how Randy is doing against. Lou Saban maybe.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, we'll be back at that point by 2011. By 1988 JJ had that thing running like a military machine. But that's five years removed from 1983, so it took a minute. By the time J-Smooth and Co. are seniors, it'll be there.

In other news, why is Christian Ponder getting complete ignored by all these QB awards people?

How in the hell do Jacory and Matt Barkley make the Davey O'Brien list but not Ponder??

Disgraceful and ridiculous.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Canez, lol, I hope you're right about him being ready. He always looks good when he's in action but I give him the benefit of the doubt coming from Kansas and learning a new position without any prior training.

But what's up with RR passing Buchanon?? Did Shannon just forget Buchanon there?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

DZ8, did he say Arthur??? GREAT CATCH if he did. I thought he said Buchanon. Maybe I was putting words in his mouth. But dam, how does RR skip Buchanon? lol

And you're right about the youth=inconsistency, that's why I was a little worried about whether they show up amped or not.

Oh well, hopefully they've turned the heart-ache into anger.

Canez1

Cav he is ready.

I am almost positive a banged RS's wifee and got caught. I am stikin with that.

He can't make more mistakes than Sharpton and we now have players at other positions to make up for those mistakes. Our CB's have finally learned how to come up and tackle someone correctly.

The dude will shine come gametime.

DZ8

At the start of this year with an extremely young team I just wanted to show improvement and be playing better football each week. Youth = inconsistency. We are seeing that. So far I am very happy with the way these guys are playing. The verdict on this season is still to be written. And, IMO, has only a little to do with wins and losses.

Love the range of emotions, from fire Randy to Randy is the greatest. Time will tell.

Good to hear from Randy that Whipple was yelling at himself. Has Whipple done any interviews after this game?

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Bernie, before the Clemson game..."This is one of those trap games...."

DZ8

Cav

Great stuff on Walsh. Love the part about how he was the only one in the huddle... need the right mix of experience but I'll never use inexperience as an excuse. How many times did we look at a season and say we have a bunch of inexperienced players and then those players step up and are better than the ones they replaced.

Also about the Randy interview. He said we have Colin, Sharpton, Ray Armstrong and Arthur Brown. He didn't mention Cookie. (or Holton)Probably just an oversight.

Later on in the interview he mentioned Bailey will be at end this week because the younger guys have stepped up. He mentioned Curtis Porter and Regis Micanor. Could've sworn it was Micanor Regis, haha. Bear Bryant used to scramble players names as well.

Thanks for the link JSQ.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

So, DLU, Solar, Calvin, Este, PB, Soup et al, now that we have answers to all our speculation, what say you??

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Walsh...."I think a lot of credit needs to go to Gary Stephens. He has such a way of grooming QBs. And he basically talked to Vinny while I listened for TWO YEARS. Then when I was the starter he talked to me while Craig Erickson listened for TWO YEARS."

TWO YEARS....Let that sink in.....TWO YEARS.

Esteban

sometimes you gotta throw goes into the fire and see how they deal with it. need Arthur getting some PT just to help keep Colin/Sharpton fresh if for no other reason.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

I'm listening to the Steve Walsh interview on QAM and the guy asks him if there was a game or a play other than the NC game that he really remembers or that really stands out....and I'm thinking to myself..."MEEEECHIGAN!!!!!".....and Steve says.."Well I think back to the Michigan game in '88."

Hahaha....I knew there was a reason he's my favorite Cane.

Then he tells the story..."When I stepped into the huddle to run our 2 minute drill, I said, "Guys, we've been here before", because I was thinking back to the FSU game in 1987. Then I looked around the huddle and THERE WAS ONLY ONE GUY who had been there before. So I said, "Well, I've been here before, so let's go!"

pb, i'm in the "i would have liked to see more blitzes, but understand why we didn't" category.

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

On the team's preparation and attitude for Wake..."Their was a lot of enthusiasm. You should've seen it. We went 1s against 1s and no one was "woe is me". It was crisp, everyone responded, it was what you want to see."

On the pass rush, are you pleased??

"No, no, not at all. We worked this morning strictly on pass rush. We worked on that heavily and We're going to work on all week because it doesn't matter how good your coverage is, if you don't get the rush it doesn't matter. We got to get better at pass rush."

On Bailey...."He's moving to DE strictly because some of the younger guys like Porter and Regis have stepped up."

On Moncur.."It's just a bad situation. Little injuries just keep a player from playing as well as he can."

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

On going into Wake..."Here's the way you gotta look at it...we had 11 penalties overall, 4 TOs and a pic six and we still had a chance to win the game. Now if that had happened in my first year the team would've shut it down in the 1st half. But after all that we still could've won this game. That's how much this team has grown and how much these players have improved."

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

On our DBs overall.."You're going to see a lot of different things Sat. Different personnel sometimes too."

Captain Optimist aka Cavaleer

Listening to Shannon on WQAM...

On the LB situation...."We got Sharpton, C-Mac, Buchanon and RAY RAY ARMSTRONG..."

On #11..."Some kids it just takes time for them to learn the system. Everyone learns differently."

On the last series in regulation..."We got Javarris, Coop and Berry all making big runs. We finished off UCF in the 4th with running and we got a 3rd and 3. We get the first down and the game is over. If one guy makes his block Javarris might go for 40 yards."

On Clemson's last play.."It was a bust. Our guy had the man then stopped and tried to do someone else's job. The secondary's play was because of busts, guys trying to do someone else's job."

pb(CSROH10)

Posted by: Esteban | October 27, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Agreed Este. Everyone wants blitz, blitz, blitz, but you have to have the players to do it SUCCESSFULLY. Banging our third string LB into the line on 3rd and 10 is not the answer.

We are frightengly thin at DL and LB at this point.

moneycane

Man that little 6 second spat between Randy and Whip is what the big deal is about. IMO that was just a minor tift during a heated moment.

Loco

if you're going to get beat over the middle anyway, blitz

Esteban

its not only about pass rushing techniques being practiced. you got banged up guys at DE. they have been playing through injuries, but can tell they aren't the same at this point in the season. Moncur never was truly healthy. Smith got banged up. Vernon got banged up. Robinson a little too, but didn't need to miss any games like the others did. Steven Wesley got banged up and even when healthy has never been much of a pass rusher. The coaches need to get creative when it comes to clear passing situations - have to do something. but its 2/3rd the way into the season. tough to do.
